Christmas at the Churches
in the City and
Country.
The GbrisUua* trie at t!ie Chris
tian church was beautiful, ajid the
graceful decoration* added much to
the pleasing effect of the tree loaded
wjth the choicest cap<jy» pojjoopu
1/ads, oranges, etc.
The ladies worked all day to make
the occasion a feast to the eye and
soul as well as to the palate.
The excellent order did not dimin
ish the children’s enjoyment. Its a
good thing to have these Christmas
festivities once a year. It loosens
our purse sluugs and makes many
little hearts throb with delight. This
liberality, “peace and good will
among men’’ must cast its impress,
it will in some way be associated
yvith tjie religion ot Jesus Christ.
Muoh is due from every citizen in
every community, for the privilege
of living under such influences, and
especially that their children are
placed under such influences. We bid
the churches of Lamar God speed in
their good work for the new year.
Mrs. Kriger delivered the new or

At the Methodist the church was
crowded. The exercises were opened
by prayer by Rev. Keut White, fol
lowed by a Christmas cantata pre
sented by the Sunday-School and
teachers and a number of ladies and
gentlemen who kindly gave their as
sistance. The children had been
Caretully trained and did nicely. The
singiug by Miss Lizzie Weir, Miss
Barker, Miss Ware, Miss McMillen
and others was of the pleasures of
the evening. D. C. Marker repre
seated “Long Ago” and had every
appearance of that date, uo matter
how far the mind carried one back.
J. A. Woodcock has acted us Santa
Claus a number of times, practice
makes perfect, and this night he did
pot fail to pleaso. The tree was not
large, but was nicely trimed, and
was a blaze with tapers. There were
a great many nice presents, and can
dy, nuts and popcorn balls for every
child in the house. A Merry Christ
mas in large gilt letters was suspend
ed oyer the altar, and in cedar, on
the wall above the tree, Peace on
garth Goad Will to Man.
The children all enjoyed the tree
and cantata, and their elders appear
ed equally pleased.

doors of residences were opeQ,
Rev. Kent White got a sack ef
flour and a package of coffee on the
Christinas tree.
There were quite a number of party
dinners.

A boy was killed and a lady's foot
so badly crushed it had to be ampu
tated, by the cable ears at Denver

miles an hour through the business
part of town where the streets are
always crowded.

tie a community there that will prac
tice high or intense cultivation, and
utilize every particle of the water
