Christmas was generally observed in
Williston and the surrounding com
munities in approrpriate style and ac
cording to the good old-time customs
last Monday night. Christmas Trees,
ladened with all sorts of good things,
were much in evidence at the. Congrega
tional and Methodist Churches, and
each edifice was literally packed with
eager nudiencos and anxious children,
intent oil reaping the full enjoyment of
the occasion. The exercises at both
churches are spoken of iu the highest
terms. Old Santa Claus, at the Congre
gational Church, was un amusing feature
for the children. We understand that
tliey also had a Santa Claus at the M. E.
church, who furnished amusements ga
lore for the children there.

It looks just a wee bit cheeky for a
self appointed committee of army offi
cers—to solicit contributions to a fund
to—psy off a mortgage on General
Lawton's property—without telling the
amount. All that is given out is—con
tributions ure coming in freely—and
there may be a surplus. The Ainerioan
people have given liberally whenever
called upon—but this algetraie proposi
tion—in the name of so generally be
loved an officer, is to say the least—not
quite plain.—Fargo Forum.
Major Edwards takes a sensible view
of this "contribution" craze, and the
above paragraph is a very mild intima
tion that such "charitable" works are
fakes and frauds of the first water*
Those who plav upon the patriotism,
credulity and liberality of the American
people in such matters are selfish,
miserly and dishonest, while the people
who allow themselves to be gulled by

ought to be fleeced.
