Peace between Ireland and Eng-land-pthts.
Is the best news trfnee
America's entry Into tine "World
War, tor as -wo have pointed out
Ireland was tho one weak Bpot In
England's defensive and diplomatic
armor. How tho peace terms will
.suit those of us -who desire no con
nection whatever -with England re
mains to be seen Summarized the
terms, at this -writing, appear to be
that Ireland is .to be known as tho
Irish Free State; that she Is to have
a status like Canada and Australia;
that she will have complete control
of' her own finance; that she will
-assume some part of the national
debt; that she will give reasonable
guarantees to the Unionist minor
ity. If this summary bo correct,
then however much It may fall short
of what wo would wish, wo must
still concede that the victory won
has been a great victory, particular
ly when we consider tho tremendous
odds against which tho Irish have
had' to contend. Besides wo should
remember that It is those who have
borno the heat and burden of, tho
day of strife those who risked all
and dared all for their country
who only have the right to say what
terms of peace will be acceptable.
They know their strength and Its
limitations, and If they find It ex
pedient to "bring .tho war to a close
on. any favorable terms, we on this
side of the Atlantic, who have ex
perienced nono of the horrors of tho
savage warfare which England
waged ini Ireland, have no night to
disapprove of those terms, however
much wo may dislike them.
posscsB within her natural terrl
tories, and how great has been tho
Irish victory a victory for right
and justice.
Tho LoulsvITlo Herald la mailing
out thousands of copies of a puzzle,
which it asks citizens to answer, but
many of tho recipients would profeT
to Tocelvo the Herald's answer to
that more Important puzzle, why it
injected the religious question into
tho recent political campaign. How
proud the Herald must bo of tho
effusive praise from tho Torch, tho
out-orJtown mudgutter organ, for Its
conduct during tho recent campaign.

Hats off to the Olan MHirphy! In!
a recent report of the War Depart
ment on family names in tho World
War the name of Murphy led all tho
rest. What's la a name? A good
deal, and it is a foregone conclusion
that a man with the grand old Celtic'
patronymic of Murphy or Kelly or
Burke or Shea will bo grabbed up
quicker by tho recruiting sergeant
than, a merer Smith, Brown.' or Bob
inon, or even a Sims or a George
'Arvey. Tho Murphys have proved
it. The Torch and Junior Order

This fine old custom: of remember

springs from tho very soul of tho
feast. For Christmas is tho feast of
the love of God for man and of man
for God, a lovo that is very fittingly
expressed by gifts. The feast of
God'a lovintg generosity to us be
comes the 'feast of our loving gen
erosity to Him. But 3di needs
nothing, we can give Him' nothing.
However in his divino wisdom Ho
has provided for all this. Ho points
to all those -whom Ho has taken for

Christmas mystery and declares to
us that whatever we do to the least
of these, his brethren, wo do It unto
Him'. Hero is both the Inspiration
fpr the feast of Christmas and tho
opportunity of .being generous to
God Himself in the- persons of those
around us.
"Even whilo'the ,blazo of Irish

Samuel Compere rightly contends
that the people of the world demand
freedom irolva. the burden of arma
ment and they demand a world or
ganized for. peace. Tho people of
tho world do not want an excuse for
failure rtlhoy do not even want a
reason for failure.
When England recognizes the
"Irish Free State" by treaty, that
means a recognition of Ireland as a
separate nation under all interna

Ireland can havo on army as great

The feast xxt Christmas Is essen
tially one of generosity. Christian
people the world over, In order to
remind one another of the generos
ity of God towards man, are in the
habit of giving Christmas presents
to those who are near and dear to
them. God's1 Christmas gift to tho
world Is peace, that true peace dt
heart and mind which can come only
from hils presence among us nnd
within our souls. For hundreds of
years before his birth the people
longea lor mis coming; tho prophets
had foretold the time and iilaco of
hfa birth, and among many other
things concerning his advent Into
tho world, told of the pefctco which
would ho the pi'ocioufc 'gift of the
new born Babe. .At his birth angels
hovered over the crib and an
nounced to the world tidings of
groat joy, heralding tho birth of tho
Prince of Peace. What must have
been the Joy and hanDiness caused
in tho hearts of all who heard those
woraa or tno angei7 But wo, too,
shore in "this happiness. With tho
whole Christian world we rejoice on
this day at tho outward manifesta
tion' of our Divine Lord in liis tem
poral birth at Bethlehem. We ex
press our good wishes to one an
other, exchango mutual tokens of
lovo and 'friendship and show in
overy way wo can a spirit of peaco
and .good will to all men.
But with the glad tidings which
the church annonuces to ua during
this holy season wo know that the
fullness of peaco can not be attained
in this life and that Christmas day
Will Qeave us with many disturbing
trials and troubles to underco.
Chritsmas for Christ was -a day of
great joy. Ho shared in happiness
watn tno angels wnen they an

would undergo ifrom tho time of
