Matthew II : n. The Heart of Christmas Christmas is not a day, it is a mood. It Is independent of days. We cele brate it on Friday, Saturday, Sunday —any day of the week. Christmas Is Indifferent to days. It has nothing to do with the almanac. It has nothing to do with place. It is as independent of geography as It Is of chronology. It has ao relation to human government, or even to race or blood. It Is an institution which can be set up on any soil and under the folds of any flag. Christmas Is a spiritual creation, and belongs to the kingdom of the heart. It Is constructed by angels of the heart of a child. If it then be a mood, it can be extended over a week, a month, a year, a lifetime. It Can be built upon time, upon eternity. If you confine it to a day, you miss the meaning of It. If you try to cram It into twenty-four hours, you crush It and lose the es sence of 1L t * ; See What Santa Brought ; > mx (72 38 U u Ë / Vi Where Christmas Comes From By T. C.

Cradled in an humble manger, Christmas comes to us today. From the fields where grew the flowers Where His childhood flitted by, Where He spent the fated hours 'Neath the burning Orient sky, And from where the roses scrambled Over hedge and mossy wall, Carpeting the paths He rambled, Christmas comes to greet us alL A Kedron still its song is singing To the far off Orient sea, And the tuneful bells are ringing In the old yeai^* jubilee; Children pluck the lily blowing On her ever graceful stem, And the lazy herds are lowing On the plains of Bethlehem. Where He trod the paths of sorrow, Where He felt the wound of thorn, Where He longed the brighter morrow Dawns the holy Christmas morn; Wherè the gentle day discloses Happiness on land and sea, Once He blessed the gentle roses On the shores of Galilee. Aye, from humble hut and steeple In that land that lies afar, Rise the anthems of the people To the glowing Christmas Star; There is told the olden story How amid the scented hay, Christ, the Saviour, came from glory Upon earth's first Christmas day. Set the bells of Christmas ringing It is time's best jubilee, For to us again they're bringing Messages from oversea; Let the hearts of all be lifted, Hope the fiercest tide can stem; Let the darkest clouds be rifted, Christmas comes from Bethlehem! ta 1920.

He was the picture of sedate middle age, from the broad-toed shoes to the pincenez suspended by a broad black ribbon. He gazed long and longingly at the portrait of a maiden In rather skimpy attire which adorned the lobby of a theater. He entered the lobby. He came out again. He was met by an equally sedate middle-aged woman. "What are you doing in there?" she demanded. "Why, my dear, I thought It was the entrance to the bird store, but hurried out as soon as I discovered my mis take," was his rather halting reply. As they started away, the man drew something from his pocket and dropped it surreptitiously to the side walk. A newsboy quickly picked it up. "Gee," he muttered, "a orchestry seat to the burlies."
