TRUE CHRISTMAS I
SPIRIT IS NEEDED I
Pastor of Phillips Congrega
tional Church Preaches on
Timely Subject
DAYS TRUE SIGNIFICANCE
REAL SATISFACTION AND JOY LIE
IN GIVING
The preacher at Phllllpe church last
evening the Rev P A Simpkln pre
sented the thought of the aptrit that is
needed to make a true Christian Baring
his sermon on the word of Paul about
Jesus In the OalatUn letter wto gave
himself Mr Simpkin Mid
We are about to enter on the hardest
and most blessed week of the year Lights
and music and laughter toll and tears
and tremor or heart sighs and songs
will mingle as the world turns to face
Christmas
It U the week wonderful when the
thought of all the world worth while
will be given to planning happiness for
young and old for the poor and broken
for sick and discouraged For a little
day the light that never was on land or
sea a thing abiding will break with mys
tic gleam and quiet beauty on all the
world In the grayest places for a HrTIe
day God will walk among men in the
figure of the Christ and the beauty of
him will be Visible In the lives of a mul
titude of simple men and women who have
T caught his agemessage and echo his love
song For a brief span the human soul will
reach to catch from the perfect day the
interest of the ages tears as It sets the
law of love into the forefront of service
It will be a wonderweek for more than
the children to whom the candlelighted
tree with its toys and tinsel will be
more glorious than a starfilled heaven
One beyond even the gladness of the old
for whom lifes keenest memories fade
to dimness who will find answered the
quavering song of age
Put your arms around me there Hke
that
I want a little petting at lifes setting
For tte harder to be brave when feeble
aw comes creeping
And find me weeping dear ones gone
Just a little petting at lifes setting
For Im old alone and tired and my lifes
long work is done
The poor and wretched who through
lifes misfortune or thriftlewness sit in
dark places will find the eclipse of loves
sun oer for a day and warmth and
plenty will make the grimiest comers of
life light and sweet
Bat the most wonderful thing will not
be the ring uf rapturekissed child faces
about the Christmas tree nor the poor
pinched faces that know for a day plenty
and love not the sparkling eyes of maid
or wife viewing loves gift Back of theIR
is the sacred fire whose gleam these
faces carry
Toe spirit that makes the Christmas
is the love that moves to give and to be
In the gift The true glory of the sea
son burns in the hearts that love and
feel and minister to need and sorrow as
well as to the hearts idols
Parenthoods Sacrifices
In the hearts of the mothers and
fathers whose very life gives a pinch of
itself In the sacrifices that make the day
a lovesanctuary there burns the true
fire The busy man of affairs altttni
in his office the bondservant of great
concerns that reach him by phone and
mail and cable the lawyer and physi
cian the banker and minemaster will
sit and once and again smile with I glad
ness and heartwarmth as he thinks of
the ministry his gift to the needy will
bring In the days as he gives to touch
the life of the community
There will be the glow the mirrored
light of Bethlehems star wherever lov
ing hearts are planning to make a bit
of gladness for the children of men That
i8 the wonderspring of Christmas
Earth has no human pledge of the
gciden day to be more perfect than this
1 vision of men copying God in acts ol
love help and tenderness
The Chriatmas wonder was and is
abidingly in the God giving of himself
o men God throned in a temple of clay
giving his life truth and love to men
is the Ideal And it is more ourselves
n sympathy with the poor and broken
than even our gifts a living spirit of
entering in to share life rather than
iur loaf that will make either a da
r an age of Christmas For Christmas
is I more than a merry feast In the calen
dar It Is the solution of all the worlds
maze and tangle as God taught us in
the angel song
It is this spirit that draws like a vast
Moulmoon the tide of life to surge in
mighty strength once in the year break
Ing in snowy foam about the feet of en
throned humanity
Is it too trite to say to our hearts
t hat happiness for us and the world about
us is only in this simple obedience to
the law Christ unveiled In his own giv
ing Only the miserheart can live in
continued joy at receiving and having
The Godlike find the satisfaction and Joy
that abide and purify as they break life
with prodigal hand for the worlds need
If for yourselves you would find the
days of Yuletide happiness your gift let
jour < hild your wife your friend your
poor brother know the remembrance of
gift but let your bread your warm gar
ments your toys or Jewels that speak
the hristmas joy carry a bit of your
self fr only on the golden threads that
read from your heart with your gifts
< an be carried to your soul or from it
the rich music that forever will echo the
angelsong to the heart that has learned
the lesson of true selfgiving

AMUSEMENTS
ORPHEUM THEATRE
With two clever playlets an equl
librist act of merit an unusually good
contortion act a comedy quartet and a
real Scotch comedian the bill which
opened at the Orpheum last night met
with instant favor with the large audi
ence One discordant note only Jarred
the harmony of the bill and that the
singing of the Swiss Quartet was to
use a slang expression so rank that it
was good
The opening act is that of Carletta
known as The Human Dragon A num
ber of feats n contortion never before
seen in Salt Lake were introduced A
feature of this act was shown with the
raising of the curtain Made up as a
dragon with fiery eyes and mouth Car
letta crawled over a Jagged rock much
the same as would the fabled creature of
oldIf
If all singing in Switzerland is like that
of the Swiss Quartet last night that coun
try would certainly never win fame
through its vocalists The work of the
quartet was so bad that the audidnce in
kidding vein repeatedly called it back
only to laugh at the amateurish efforts
of the singers to please
Miss Edwina Barry and an excellent
company won many laughs in the do
mestic farce The Home Breaker Miss
Barry as Dolly Plumdaffy a servant
whose principal object in securing a job
seemed to be to cause domestic discord
by making love to the man of the house
is a comedienne of originality She
I cracked a numb of Jokes at the ex
pense of local people which were well
received
Jock McKay Scotch singer bagpipe
player and comedian got the audience
into a laughing mood immediately by his
quaint recital of jokes on his friend
McPherson His woik was good through
out
The Drums of Doom presented bj
Miss Minnie Seligman and William Bram
well 01 Co is one of the cleverest
playlet on the circuit Waiting for news
that the pardon issued at the eleventh
hour to her husband condemned to death
for murder had been gotten to the war
den of the prison In time In spite of
the angry mob that had collected only
to hear later that the pardon did not
reach the prison and that the husband
had been executed gave Miss Iigman
as Mrs Jim Kilbridge great opportunity
for clever emotional acting The act was
well received and loudly applauded
The Bootblack Quartet made a great
hit with the audience in the rendition
of a number of songs humerous and
otherwise They were encored repeat
edly
The closing act of the bill is that of
the Three Bounding Gordons This trio
presents a series of original springs and
Jumps seen here for the first time As
an equilibristic act it is one of merit and
was well received
COLONIAL THEATRE
Bernard Daly the sweet singer of Erin
appeared last night at the Colonial in
his latest success Sweet Innlsfallen
The play is an Irish romance of the
type made famous by Chauncey Olcott
Mr Daly is heard in a number of Irish
songs which are most enjoyable features
of the performance His beautiful tenor
voice delighted the large audience and it
called for repeated encores The songs
I are Mr Dalys own composition and
the charming melodies were interpreted
with great feeling The favorite was
Sweet Innlafallen which describes the
island from which the play takes its
name
In Irelands fair clime by the lakes of
Klllarney
Theres a dear little spot Innl allen by
name
With its ould ruined shrine haunted
grottoes and fairies
Sure In sons and In stories youve heard
of Its fame
As you wander along through Its valleys
and dells
You can hear the sweet sound of the
monastry bells
Tolling a welcome for all to the gates
Of sweet Innisfallen the gem of the
lakes
Youth and an attractive personality
combined with his marvelously sweet
voice are advantages of which Mr Daly
is possessed and with his knowledge of
the technique of the stage he gave an
admirable presentation of the role of
Larry OConnell He appears as a wan
dering vagabond but the play discloses
that it is a part assumed for the purpose
of discovering the husband of his dead
sister who was married under an as
sumed name Larry also assists in free
ing an innocent man from the charge of
murder and in bringing the real villain
to Justice
The play itself though making an ad
mirable medium for the display of Mr
Dalys peculiar talents is loosely con
structed and it is not always easy to
follow the thread of the story It lacks
unity and clearness That it is a true pic
ture of Irish village life and is admirably
staged add to its effectiveness
The company presenting Sweet Innis
fallen is good The difficult role of
Miles Began as played by Victor Harvey
was exceptionally well done He de
scribed amurder in thrilling manner and
his own death struggle was a masterly
performance It was not unpleasantly
sensational but won applause for its
realism Squire Carlton by Norbert A
Myles was also well done and other
parts were acceptably taken except in
the case of Grace Moore played by Mar
guerite Hart It was utterly colorless
Sweet Innisfallen is on the whole one
of the most attractive productions seen
at the Colonial this season It will run
the remainder of the week with Wednes
day and Christmas day matinees
The company was delayed and the cur
tain did not go up until 913 i last night
MISSION THEATRE
This weeks bill at the Mission is prov
ing an exceptionally popular one the
many excellent acts coming in for un
stinted approval from the large audi
ences that are nightly packing the new
theatre One of the most wonderful and
