Christ the Lord is born today, will be the word going through land on Christmas morning when wo celebrate the birthday of Him after whom we are named Christians. Al Christian peoples celebrate the birth of Christ the great man, whose teachings if really put in practice by men would make the world a paradise. As His reward. He was hung on the cross, and many of His followers were hung, shot, or killed some other way; or put in prison away from the world. Many of his followers are in jail today and many are perse cuted in our Christian world because they teach the teaching of Him. In our great country, the United States of America, the birthday of Christ will he celebrated by millions, because we are called a Christian nation. If Christ happened to' be on earth on Christmas day right here in the United States would he say we are worth to be called a Christian nation? We will not answer this question directly, but call the at tention to the fact that Christ is called "the man of peace." Have we any peace? Are not our children taught to kill in our schools? Are not scientists employed by our governments to discover more effective materials to kill people wholesale? Are not warships built and armies made more effective? Is science not used to produce the most dealy gasses, and what for? Is it done for the purpose to teach Christianity? Is the above quotation from the Bible spoken by Christ when He was on earth lived up to in this country? Let's see what Secretary of Labor James J. Davis says in his latest report about our children, "for of such is the kingdom of God." "The reports of the bureau of census would indicate that more than a million children between the ages of 10 and 16 are engaged in gainful work in industry. The details reveal that children between 1(1 and 15 years to the number of approximately 660,000 are engaged in the sugar-beet fields, the cotton fields, and the onion fields of the land. Apparently the usual method is to employ whole families by contractors to work in these fields, the children work with the adults usually from sunrise to sunset, walking in a stooped position or crawling through the fields, pulling up the weeds, pulling up beets and onions, cutting the tops from these, and also in picking cotton. There are a number of definite move ments of these families composed largely of children from state to state where these agricultural industries thrive." "A complete survey would indicate that 1,500,(100 American children are now the victims of premature toil in the mines and mills and factories and fields and homes of this country. This is all wrong. The great problem of childhood is of the utmost importance to the perpetuity of the nation. Our children are entitled to a life that will conserve their strength while young and that will enducate their minds and hearts so that they may be efficient when they grow to maturity." "Long continued hours of toil at a time when the bones and the muscles of the body of the child ate un developed bring about a condition which retards its development. We are told that a times in some places children of 12 years or thereabouts are compelled to labor 8 and 10 and 12 hours per day in employment which so exhausts them that their nerves are frazzled when niuht comes and they are unable to sleep. The destiny of such poor victims seems clear. When they reach the age of womanhood or manhood instead of being able to do their share of the world's work and do it effectively and efficiently, they are wrecks, physi cally, mentalb. and morally, a large percentage of them landing in the poorhou.se. or the madhouse, or the jail, or the grave. There is not a single defense that can be urged to this awful system, and every instinct of hu manity prompts its abolition. Hut beyond the instinct of humanity, ordinary wisdom and prudence of any Gov ernment will prompt it to conserve the physical, mental, and moral fiber of it> growing childhood merely from the standpoint of insuring the perpetuation of the Gov ernment." Can we call ourselves a Christian nation? Ah, who are these on whom the vital bloom Of life has withered to the dust of doom? These little pilgrims prematurely worn And bent as if they wore the weight of years? These childish faces, pallid and forlorn, To dull for laughter and too hard for tears? Is this the ghost of that insane crusade That led ten thousand children long ago A bock of innocents, deceived, betrayed. Yet pressing on through want antl woe To meet thei." fate, faithful and unafraid ? Nay, for a million children now Are marching in the long, pathetic line, With weary step and wrinkled brow; And at their head appears no holy sign Of hope in heaven; For unto them is given No cross to carry, but a cross to drag. The load of labor, toiling underground, In dangerous mines and breathing heavy air, Of crowded shop.-; their tender lives are ltound To service of the whirling slattering wheels. That fill the factories with dust and noise; They are the girls and boys, Hut little "hands," who blindly, dumbly feed With their own blood the hungry god of greed. —Dr. Henry Van Dyke.

How they smiled That he, who talked with courtesan.-, Who said: "He led as by a child," Wlhi supped with low-browed publicans Should dare to preach! A hare-brained boor, A rustic in a city stew! They could not listen—that was sure — They could not listen then; can you. And when he turned to violence, Assaulting brokers—men of peace— The priests themselves, in self-defense. Surrendered him to the police— A sweat-stained working man to them. They jeered him up the hill of death; This carpenter of Rethlehem, Jesus, this chap from Nazareth. What has been shall be; so today In strict accordance with the law We hoot the jay and turn to slay: We send our Christs to Golgotha; Where rotting hovels bring the rents. Where there is darkness and disgrace, Where there are "model tenements." We keep the rascals in their place. And so, in children bleached by toil, In working-women starved to shame, In farm-hands fettered to the soil, In trades you scarcely dare to name, In shop and office, mine and mill With bloody brow antl riven side. With hands that wrought your safety still Writhes Labor, crowned and crucified. CHRISTMAS SEALS Through every available medium of distribution and publicity, the Christ mas Seal sale of 1922 is now getting into full swing. The thirty anti tuberculosis leagues affiliated with The Washington Tuberculosis Asso ciation and the chairmen of the nine remaining counties have arranged for the dainty little sticker bearing the slogan "For Health" to go to every nook in the state, and to that end mails are carrying little pack ages of seals to those who could not participate in any other way. Window decorations and booths in the leading business houses add to the general appeal of the effective national posters and of the seal it self. Handsome cards bearing the slogan "Stamp out the Tuberculosis, Buy Christmas Seals," have been placed in the street cars generally throughout the state through the National Tuberculosis Association which secured this concession from the controlling syndicates. Attractive slides announcing the sale have been distributed to the motion picture houses and cuts of the seal have been furnished the newspapers of the state. In short, the weeks of preparation for the sale of 1922 are complete and the people of Washington now have an opportunity to do their -.hare in buying seals to further the national, state and county fight against tuberculosis. Just five seals for each one in the state, store if possible, but with five the minimum. Beautify your Christmas greetings with a seal. "The good they do de pends on you." DIDNT RAISE HER BOY TO BE SCAB The folio wing article is reprinted from the New York World: "I have just read Daugherty's blanket injunction, and if organized labor and the people in general stand for that they would stand for anything and deserve anything. Hav ing been a reader of the World for twelve years, I cannot fail to be aware of the World's bias against organized labor, but I well believe it to be too great and far-seeing a newspaper to uphold such a men ace to human liberty as this is. "If, as the World claims, the shop men's union had lost the strike, this injunction is not needed; if the road cannot win against their employes without the aid of such a dangerous weapon as this is, then they had better admit that the men have won. "If that injunction had been effec tive two weeks ago I, a responsible, patriotic. Christian mother of sons of native ancestry liable to what ever penalties go with disobedience to Mr. Daugherty's ukase, for I would be guilty in three of the thir teen points of the injunction, name ly: "I. Arguing with someone who announced that he intended to work for a railroad. "2. Preventing a person from continuing in railroad employment. "3. Telling a person that it is unsafe for him to remain in railroad employ. "The 'person' was my son, who, misled by the glowing advertise ments in the newspapers, had fool ishly left his own work and be come an electric welder for one of the railroad shops, at which em ployment he continued two hours, for the moment I learned of it I went directly to that railroad yard. Straight down the right of way to the shop where he was working, and 1 argued with him to such purpose that he resigned as a strikebreaking railroad employe and returned to his own work. "That was my duty, and I would do it in spite of any injunction. "The above paragraph admits of two more violations: "4. Walking down a railroad right of way. "5. Interfering with an employe in the performance of his duty. "Heretofore I have left public matters to others, being fully occu pied with the duties of responsible and worthy motherhood, but I have written to Mr. Jewel asking to join the Shopmen's Union in any honor ary capacity and offering any as sistance I can give him in resisting such an unheard-of and undreamed of attack upon the liberties our fore fathers died to bequeath us."—A Pa triotic Mother.

THE LABOR JOURNAL THE OI X AST SHORT NOTES HE SAT DOWN WITH HARDING I'm busted and disgusted and 1 don't know what to do. My pocket book is empty—haven't got a single sou. I'm actually tired of living, but it costs too much to die, for the price of wooden overcoats is awful, scand'lous high. For one long year I haven't worked a solitary day; if I ever get another job my debts per haps, I'll pay. I've always been a working man, for work my love's im mense.

LINCOLN SAW KILLING OF ALL THREE PRESIDENTS Here is the amazing, the very ex perience of Robert T. Lincoln, son of President Lincoln, and now in his eightieth year. He related it recent ly to a friend and, so far as I know, it has never before been published: Young Lincoln was in the army and stationed in Virginia when he re ceived an order to report at Wash ington. He got into the theatre just in time to see his father receive his fatal wound. Young Lincoln was secretary of war under Garfield. He was asked by the president to meet him at the station and he fetched there just as Garfield was assassinated. Mr. Lincoln received an invitation to attend the formal opening of the Pan-American Exposition at Buffalo, and accompanied by his family, got there just in time to see President McKiniey shot by Czolgosz. A friend happened to be with Mr. Lincoln when he received an invi tation to attend a presidential func tion Tit Washington a few years ago. He then remarked something to the effect that, "If they only knew, they wouldn't want me there." And he recited his experience as here re vealed.—B. C. Forbes, in Forbes | Magazino (X. y.). THE BILLBOARD ON THE STREET Note—The following poem is taken from the Congressional Record. It was quoted in an address of Sen ator Pat Harrison, who said it had been sent him.—Ed. Mark Hanna gave the dinner pail That made us feel so fine; Theodore used the big stick To keep us all in line; But, Harding, in his great wisdom, Has outdone all such feats, He's given us prosperity On billboards on our streets. A quick return to "normalcy The thing he's striving at, And if we'll tighten up our belts. Some time he'll make us fat. Instead of the old dinner pail, Full of good things to eat, He'll serve us with prosperity On billboards on the street. Fur many yean I served you As puppet and as tool. But this last stunt has wised rue up, No more a silly fool. I may he a poor working man, My clothes are far from neat, But you can't fool me with pros perity On a billboard on a street MOB VIOLENCE INCREASING Over 800 cases of mob violeee took place in the United States in the 21 , months up to last June, according to a compilation made public yesterday by the American Civil Liberties Un ion in a pamphlet entitled "Who May Safely Advocate Force and Vio lence?" The facts of mob violence are set forth to give point to the quoted utterances of men in public life "advocating force and violence against radicals." The figures com piled from the Union's records show that from September 1, 1920 to June I, 1922, there were 8", lynch- 1 ings, 51 cases of tarring and feather- 1 ing. 127 floggings, and 450 forcible ' mob deportations. Striking facts brought out by the figures are that ' 30 of the 85 men lynched were I white, as were 49 of the 51 tarred ' and feathered, and DO of the J27 ! flogged. Five of the victims were 1 women, of whom three were white. s Negroes numbered less than one- 1 third of those attacked. The Ku r Klux Klan was identified with 5,'! I of the mobs. , t The report says, "While most of t the mob violence took place in the " South and Southwest, it was also f well distributed through the Far I West and Middle West, with fewer cases in the East. The record to-! tals over 700 victims at the lowest C possible count, and over 800 includ ing riot victims. The figures are all doubtless low, because our records are necessarily incomplete, based only on inadetpuate press reports," i EDITORS POOH EVERYWHERE A visitory to a si til town lost his dog, an animal Wnil h he prized VtfJT much. Rushing to the office of . the* local newspaper, he handed in an advertisement offering five shill -1 trigs reward for the return of the dog. Half an hour later he thought he would add to this advertisement the words; "No questions asked." So he hurried off to the office again. When he got there the place was empty save for a small boy who looked very sulky. ••Where's the staff?" asked the tourist, glancing around the de serted room. , "Out looking for your dog!" was the retort.—London Tit-Bits.
