Charles Jameson, of Chicago, who has been spending several weeks a the H. D. Dennis ranch, near Preston, happened with a rather painful accident on Mon day while out hunting rabbits with a six-shcoter. He was on a l saddle horse, and while attempt j ing to cock the gun with one hand | his horse jumped, and apparent i ly he was not successful in lock : ing the trigger, as the gun dis charged and the bullet entered his right leg just above the knee. When the bullet struck the bone it glanced down and lodged in the calf of the leg. Mr. Jameson was brought to Wibaux Monday evening when Dr. Gaines remov ed the bullet and dressed the wound. At this writing he is re* ported to he doing G/>e Spirit of Christmas. It is said that in the upper air all the varied " sounds of earth, however discordant, blend into one harmonious strain. That well illustrates the spirit of Christmas, which is that of peace and harmony. The discords and rivalries of the world become subdued when the Christmas bells usher in the day which, more than any other day in the year, speaks of peace and good will. Men differ in their theological conceptions of the Christ, yet all regard him the supreme figure in the world's his tory and whose influence is the most benign and powerful. To day learning brings its wisdom and gifts and lays them at the feet of the Christ-Child just as the Magi did two thousand years ago, and the mas ses, however much they may be estranged from the churches, bow in adoration at the manger as did the shepherds. This is no mere sentimentalism on their part but the natural re sult of the truth that the spirit of Christ is surely leaving man kind and stamping upon it his own likeness. One thing to be kept in mind is that the spirit of Christmas should not cease with the close of the day itself, but should be man ifested with growing blessedness every day of the year.. Then let joy and goodwill be fully display ed on Christmas Day in the fes tivities that abound and in the kindly cheer and loving gifts dis tributed on every hand. It will help us all to be better men and women and bring us nearer to the goal after which all should strive. School Notes. % Look not mournfully into the past, it comes not back again; but wisely improve the present, it is thine; go forth to meet the shadowy future without fear and with a manly heart.
