Peace on earth good will toward
This is the invitation and injunc
tion and command that has come
ringing down the ages these two
thousand years past and wherever
men have adopted it it has become
the most potent influence in the
world Peace on earth good will to
ward men a member of no creed
no society no lodge no union no or
ganization hut sweeping in its inclu
sion of all people everywhere To en
joy this fellowship of peace and good
will requires noTniowledge of a pass
word sign or countersign or high
ball no inner fellowship into any
secret or other society but a deep
and sincere love for fellowmen It is
confined to no ism creed or screed
does not stop to ask questions as to
whether or not he belongs to our so
ciety asks nothing about paidup dues
or back taxes but takes the whole
in fact in this woild in this nation
in this state in this county in this
town in the home there would be no
need of peace tribunals and Carnegie
I peace funds no need of greater
navies or San Juan Hill charges by a
big set of teeth no need of libel laws
no need of organized chanties or re
form measures no need of investiga
tions and no need of the rod in the
home Invoked and exercised it would
correct the tariff laws of the nation
excel and succeed the Monroe doc
trine and bring to an amicable termi
nation all the differences between
capital and labor Good will toward
men implies justice multiplied bj
mercy and if we really felt in good
will toward men we could nndwould
take nothing from them that was just
ly theiis but add to the measure of
justice a heaping plenty
The biggest sin of the world today
is in its selfishness the spirit that
rides roughshod over the spirit of
good will and becomes a warfare of
strength ingenuity and trlcKerj
against the lest of the world The
good will of the great business combi
nations of today is expressed in the
good will to do everybody if they
get a chance and they spend their
time in making their chances And
tect our own
We cannot hope to change what
has come to be a mighty system in a
day but each of us can do our best
We can look about us and find a sub
ject for our good will and exercise it
At Christmas time the opportunity is
especially presented to do good and
be the means of good cheer If
Christmas means anything it means
the celebration of the birth of Chiist
and if we believe that the day and
occasion should be one of vast more
moment than the giving and receiving
of presents It argues nothing of a
mans goodness thathe gives his wife
a thousand dollar necklace it may
suggest that he is the victim of cir
cumstances over which he has no
control that he has more money than
other needed virtues that he wants to
make a showing of his possessions or
please his vanity It may suggest any
of these things but it does not prove
that he has received the message of
good will toward his fellowmen no
not in one thousand years six
months seven days and fortyfive
If we would get the most out of the
blessed Christmas we must make
something of the sacrifice suggested
in the great gift df God who gave His
only Son to the world Hunt out some
little pale faced child and make the
lines of care and distress give way to
world in on the platform of good will j smiles of rapture know in your heart
If it were the controlling influence you are clean and wholesome and

Some of the happiest men in Texas
at this Christmas time are the con
victs in Texas penitentiaries who
have been pardoned by Governor
Campbell All of the cases where par
dons have been Issued have been in
vestigated by the board of pardons
and the pardons recommended There
will be gieat happiness in the homes
where they return Undoubtedly there
are some men in prison who should
not be there as there are some men
at liberty who should be in prison
The Herald expects to see the day
come in Texas when the state will
bo broad enough to giye the man who
offends the peace of the state a
chance This paper stands pledged to
the parole sjstem of punishment and
beliees that many men who commit
offensfs in a moment of passion or
t mutation if allowed to go under pa
