dence has been secured to show that
the roughage portion of the aver
age diet has received too llttlo at

Christmas Is its
you icnllty of It. At Christmas
thiie no eihortatlon is neieessry to,
make It go; Christmas never hss to
be msde a "success," as a parade or
a pageant. '
Christmas Is lu a certain serine snj
ustltutlon; it come at s certain date,
-acu year; it always has Its Christmas
tree, Its stocking, Its poultry dinner j
.-olored with cranberries. But It isj
une of those institutions that has nv-;
er been instltnUonited ; tt exist In'
he nature ef man.
Chrlstmss proves te as that men,
Aouieu and children are at heart,
."rlendly beings. The spontsnlty orj
hiitioas giving snd Christmas cheer
proves w hst people really went t be (
sood friends. j
Wsrs go on at ether times; men,
sod women quarrel smeng themselves
over property or over other men and
weiuen; artificial requirements are lm-j
ooaed that Incite to need, dishonesty!
tnd bitterness. But at Chrlstmss time
there comes over the brosd surf see of
ur western dvlllsstion, which Is pret
ty much llks other civilisations, a
treat reversion te type. Man wants!
jiost to be heppy, he wsnts to dance
ind sing snd to make other persons
isppy. At other times than Christ-i
nas something seems to be wrong, snd',
nan reasoos that someone else Is to'
At Chrlstmss time there la a gn
irsl forgetting of everything but be-j
'ng natural. Christmas Is the greet j
innusi "armlstlcs ef that portion of
mmsnlty that baa come to be segre
lated under the name of Christendom.
