" All events as well as heroes are dwin dled bv passing years, not perhaps to a palling extent, but to a degree that their name does not thrill the heart as it did in years agone. But the birth of the Nazareue, mark ing the dawn of an age of charity to re place an age of vengence, has grown nearer to humanity year by jrnr, and has become the most treasured of the days and the greatest feast of civiliza tion. Not only has the church culti vated the ever growing fondness for Christmas, but poets of every land have ?ung the holy th< me in immortal verse for ages. The folk lore of Norse and Saxon have enriched with it the realms of tradition and the storytellers of each J succeeding century and decade have ! found ( hristmas the most available set- 1 ting for tales calculated to warm the ; human heart. A curmudgeon indeed must be the person that could resist the j universal spirit of good will born of the day or could hold aloof frotu the good : cheer a d merriment of 'bristmastide. The general agency of the Pacific Coast Company, has been the Chilton Hundreds, the validictory phase or the jumping off p,ace of the corporation. All who have been promoted to that position during the past decade have left the position and the employ of the company simultaneously. The present ! incumbent is J. K. I'haro, as every body knows, and his tenure is a sad j affair, as he has been one of the most popular men in the company, so that the sorrow of his as-ociates at reading the writing on the wall, more than counterbalances the interesting specu lation on the subject of who may suc ceed him .N.I .. .? .
