B. NEILL, Manager Bonners Ferry, Idaho ii Phone 25 a ii :? * v Union Church. Sunday was a banner day in the Union Church. The audience in the morning was good and the musical numbers rendered by the choir were excellent "a n d much appreciated by the congregation. The church was crowded in the eve ning to enjoy the Sunday school Christmas exercises which were said to be one of the very best ever given in Bonners Ferry, It would be diffi cult to say which class excelled, for they were all good, but the primary children are always keenly appreci ated and the boys ot Miss Eva Mae Little's class more than distinguished themselves. The Walden boys' orches tra won high honors. Santa Claus arrived on schedule time to the delight of the boys and girls and had a gift for all the Sunday school pupils, and for all the little visitors in the large audience. Bon ners Perry parents may well be proud of the work being done by the teach ers and officers of the school Services next Sunday will be as usual.

Inquire of Frank : Bdm0nd8 - tf 1 Relic of Saxon Days ^ T n „ , HE New Tear begins precisely at midnight, and almost everyone now adays sees the New Year In by general festivities and many good resolutions, which are promptly forgotten on Jan jary 2. (<£), 1ÖI Western Newspaper Union.) The festivities marking this occasion, says Hereward Carrington, scientist and author, are very ancient, and in old Saxon days it was the custom to partake of a bowl of spiced ale, which was passed around with the expression "Wasshael," which meant "to your health !" Hence the origin of the Was sail, or Wassel bowl. We now keep New Year on January the first ; but the Chinese, Jews, Turks and many others do not observe it this day. Even Christian countries have not always so observed it ; the Romans began the year with the March equinox. The later Teutonic nations 1 - <>n for a long time continued counting the j beginning of the year from March 25. I It was only in 15G3, by an edict of Charles IX, that France changed the j time of the beginning of the year to January 1. In 1G00 Scotland made j the same change, and England only so In 1752, when the Gregorian system was adopted there. It will thus be seen that the New Year, ob served on January 1, is relatively new, though we are accustomed to thluk T , _ ,, f?
