THE TENNESSEE TIMES CROSSVILLE CHRONICLE CONSOLIDATED 189s i Published Every Wednesday. VOL. XXXVI CROSSVILLE TENNESSEE, WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 20, 1922. No. 50. Grossville POMONA Miss Ruth Converse and brother, Henry, left Tuesday for Knoxville where they will spend the Holidays with relatives. There will be a Christmas tree and entertainment at the church here Sat urday at 6:00 p. m. Mr. and Mrs. Ernest Bell drove ov er to Pleasant Hill Sunday where they were the guests until Monday of Mrs. Bell's aunt, Mrs. Tanner. Many Pomonians were seen In Crossville Saturday doing their Christ mas shopping. Mr. and Mrs. Frank Hughes have named their baby boy, Oliver Franklin. Mrs. Lestej Dayton is the guest of home folks at Linary this week. As the glad Christmas-tide draws near we sometimes wonder if we ful ly realize the true significance 01 the dav. In our cnurcn entertainments, and in our homes, do we let the Christ Spirit lead us, or are we inclined to be selfish in our enjoyment ot the dav? There will be 'thousands of Christmas trees in our churches this vear. as there are every year, but many go away from these trees feel ing disappointed, bitter, or envious then the tree ha"s fallen short of its mission. And this unwelcome feeling will prevail among the more unfor tunate so long as the Christmas tree is made a place for some to display their numerous presents from family and friends, while many a little child gets nothing but the one small bag of candy, or apple, or orange given by the Sunday School. A few years aeo the writer watched the face of one little fellow as he sat there al most shivering in his thin, worn clothes even in the warm church. He at first listened eagerly as name after name was called, but after awhile some names had been called a half dozen times or more while his little hands were still empty, the eager look changed to one of the most forlorn disappointment, and when his name was the last called, the small bag of candy and orange from the Sunday" School failed to dispel the cloud that had closed, lout' the Chnst-Spirit'l.from liii Christmas.

REMANS OF P. E.

Then there would be no after-feeling of dis appointment in many a lonely little heart, and the Sunday School Christ mas tree would have fulfilled its mission. G. L. MILLER BUYS DAIRY RANCH IN MONTANA A recent letter from G. L. Miller, who was for several terms Circuit l-Cotirt clerk of this county, but who for several years has vbetai making his home in the West, tells of his purchase of a dairy farm near Farm ington, Montana. He says: "J. Sanford and myself have bought a dairy ranch and took charge on the third of this month. We have a fine ranch of 400 acres, 200 irrigated land and 80 acres more can be irrigated. We have a free water right for the 200 acres, but will have to buy water for the 80 acres. We have 17 head of good dairy cows and 18 head of young cattle. Also 10 head of horses and all the farm machienry with the ranch. We have plenty of water and that Is 'a big item in Montana. Only five miles to railroad and 11 miles to Cho jteau, the county seat; a good road to both points. "Wishing you and all. my friends in that country health, wealth and hap piness, I remain "Yours very truly, "G. L. MILLER.

X Times G.OOD-BYE Old Year! the fickle World Pursues another Flame, And Time the ruthless, changing Time Will now erase your name. And yet your younger rival with His aspect bright and new Is but an unread version of The hopes we had for you. The apple-blossoms of his Spring The little seeds that lie Deep buried in the Heart of Earth, Will live again and die. He, too, will give the warmth of Sun, And days of slanting rain, As he deals out our yearly share Of happiness and pain. Christmas Eve is supposed to bring to a close the annual sale of Christmas seals in Tennessee, but since none have been on sale here it is hoped Crossville people will extend purchas es at least to the New Year. The sale this year-has been up to expectations. especially in view of the goal of 7,500,000 set when the various allied women's organi zations of the state tgain sought ti spon sor the movement. From indications at hand it would appear that the sale will sur pass the goal set and smash all previous records for these lit tle stockers which are harbingers of good health. "The Christmas seals bearing the double barred cross, furnish the chief support of the Tennessee Anti Tuberculosis Associa tion through whose efforts such a splendid fight has been waged against one of the most deadly diseases known to man. The record of the Associa tion's work in Tennes see, characterized by the wholesale saving of lives and thia-feiU greater prevention of the spread of the di sease, is already well knpwn to most of the The big round moon and silver stars That lighted up your skies Will shine upon as many loves In just as many eyes.

Because his Winter footsteps reach The portal you have passed. Good-bye, Old Year! we loved you well; We found your treasures dear, But you have died as monarchs die And so Long live the Year! T citizens of this state, The work in 1922 has been splendid and that planned for 1923 will be much greater in ac cordance with the schedule on the ba sis of the 7,500,000 sale which now seems will be exceeded.

There is a legacy to cover the cost of Hopkins Hall and funds are in sight for the needed repairs on Wheeler Hall, also for a central heating plant to supply a part of the buildings.
