Before the war there were sub stantially 11,000,000 savings bank de positors. Add to this 3,1X10,000 de positors in state banks, which list, of course, includes many commercial ac counts ; 400,000 postal savings bank depositors and 100,000 depositors in private banks. After eliminating du plications, i; would likely be lib eral to esttniate that there were 14, 000,000 money savers In the United States before the war, with not to exceed 10,000,000 families probably represented In this number. The fourth Liberty loan was supported by 21,000,000 subscriptions. It would likely be extremely conservative to say that 3,000,00(5 others have subscribed to former issues of. the Liberty loan, and were unable to do so in the fourth loan. We can then with safety say there are 24,000,000 owners of Lib erty bonds in America today.

L h **!rl HU « P X t Christmas Is Childrens Day The message of Christmas Is love. Its emblem is radiant, thankful, tented childhood. Without love and without children there could be real Christmas. The form might sur vive but the substance would be lack con no ing. Unhappy must be the adult who can not make himself a child again in spirit at the Yuletlde. For Christmas is the universal children's day. Men and women are superfluous except as they make themselves partners with those whom the day glorifies. Let us, then, lay aside the affecta tion and arrogance of mnnhood and womanhood and be children again. Let us adopt their point of view an«t put ourselves in their places—in the places of these sons and daughters of ours and of the sons and daughters of our neighbors. It was only a yenr or two ago, as it seems, when we hung our well-worn stockings in a row along the mantel shelf, while our fathers and mothers looked on with unfeigned pleasure at the innocent confidence we showed In what the morrow would bring forth. Even as you and I. It all comes back in a flood of memories. Life ivas simpler then. Our desires were less pretentious than those our chil dren voice now. Modest remembrances they were that bulged toe and heel of the stockings mother knit. Life and its circumstances change, but the essence of Christmas never. The same happy childhood, the same restlessness, the same snail-like creep ing of time as the holiday approaches. The same parenthood, too—the same planning across the readtng table after the boys and girls are abed, the same loving consideration of what this or that child most desires and how far the family purse can properly be stretched to jpermit some further pur chase.

"AlSlur CuHnun in #c Youb't Onwnn I X St. Winnifred and the Tree One story of the origin of the green tree as the Christmas tree among the people of northern Europe Is given in a legend of St. Winnifred. It is one of the many thousands of those sim ple and beautiful beliefs that have at tached themselves to the midwinter festival and which generally pass now under the name of "Christmas myths." It is related that St. Winnifred, a great Christian missionary, began cutting down a "sacred" oak which had been the object of worship by the northern pagans whom he was seeking to lead aright. While he was hewing down the huge tree it was blasted by a sudden whirlwind. Close beside It young fir tree, which was not harmed either by the whirlwind or by the fall of the giant oak. Then St. Winnifred Is reported to have spoken as follows to the pagans: "This little tree, a young child of the forest, shall be your holy tret} to night. It Is the wood of peace, for your homes are built of it. It is the sign of an endless life, for Its leaves are always green. See how it points toward heaven ! Let this be called the tree of the Christ Child. Gather about It; not in the wild woods, but in your homes; there it will shelter no deeds of blood, but loving gifts and acts of kindness." The fir tree, the common evergreen of the northern regions, became the holy tree of the converted pagans, and in Its honor or in memory of the thoughts it stood for they decorated it with lights and gifts at Christmas. was a NOTHING HAPPENED.
