For it is no parting there.
A link is taken from our family band,
A chain is forming in the better land.
WITH HER SOLDIER HUSBAND
Wife of General Grant Accompanied
Him on His Campaigns Whenever
It Was Possible.
Like Peneldpe of old, Julia Dent
Grant was wedded to a soldier named
Ulysses. Also like Penelope, her hus
band journeyed around the world. But
there the resemblance ceases. Mrs.
Grant herself is quoted by historians
"Having learned a lesson from my
predecessor, Penelope, I accompanied
my Ulysses in his wanderings around
Julia Dent Grant was born In St.
Louis, the daughter of Frederick Dent,
a prominent man of that city, says the
Detroit News. At the age of erghteen,
shortly after she had completed her
studies «ft an exclusive school, the
charming girl met Ulysses Simpson
Grant, then only a lieutenant. He was
stationed at Jefferson barracks in St.
Louis. It was not long before the
young people were deeply In love. Af
ter the war with Mexico they were
Like that of most wives of soldiers,
Mrs. Grant's life was one of constant
moving about, until she fell ill, and
was not able to accompany her hus
band to California, whither he had
been ordered. She spemVtwo years at
the home of her parents and at the
end of this time Captain Grant re
signed from the army, that he might
be near her.
The -Civil war brought him back Into
the service and it was during this time
that Julia Grant revealed her brave
and hardy spirit. She was with her
husband whenever It was possible, and
spent all of her time on or near the
scene of action.

4^|f" HERE is neither speech nor
language, but their voices are
heard among men." This is
an inscription engraved upon one of
the bells in a tower in Antwerp, Bel
gium, in 1658, but, long before this
date, voices of bells had told to human
ity their tales of gladness or sadness,
of threatened danger or safety
achieved, and always the world un
derstood and responded to mood or
emergency as the case might have
For centuries church bells have told
the ever-new, old story of the Christ
Child. For weeks before the sacred
day arrives a wild rush of preparations
leaves little timo for reflection. In
these busy hours clanging bells of im
patient street cars spur the pedestrian
to heroic efforts and startle the pre
occupied shopper out of some absorb
ing reverie. This is the time when
fatigue and happiness go hand in
hand, and many an exhausted mother,
nodding on her homeward ride, hears
the ripple of baby laughter and the
patter of hurrying feet above the rau
cous noises attending her trip. Fa
ther, with his arms piled high, looks
over the crowd with a far-away expres
sion, seeing only the one paramount
incident of the Christmas revelation,
and starry eyes that will turn toward
him with a deeper lovelight written in
their shining depths. It is this mar
velous hour toward which the whole
world moves with one concerted mo
tive, and in its hallowed joy revives
the spirit that is the foundation of a
When the bells of Christmas morn
peal their tidings of "Peace and Good
Will" it will be to a world waiting
to receive the message a world that
has been hurried axid excited and in
terested, but which has all unconsci
ously been acquiring a spirit en rap
port with the burden of their chim
ing. All the stress of living and striv
ing, all the hurts and the sorrows are
softened by the benediction of the
bells. Deeper reverence for life and
a fuller appreciation of the love that
surrounds us is roused by their Yule
tide music. They call to all that is
best and loveliest and we answer by
an outpouring of Christmas spirit, a
keener sense of human brotherhood
and a closer knitting of family ties.
While they have "neither speech nor
language," they tell a marvelous story,
a story that we understand, and we
ljve better for that understanding.—

WILLMAR TRIBUNE, WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 14,1921
FTER a year of strife and con
fusion the world is about to de
clare an armistice for the observ
ance of Christmas. It is curious how
the essence of Christianity gets itse'f
recognized and practiced in spite of
the world, the flesh and the devil.
In this time of good will everybody
becomes Christian, for Christmas is
simply the substitution of the spirit of
giving for the spirit of getting.
When Jesus was born in Bethlehem
there came to the world a new con
ception of God and of his relations
with man. The Child lying in the
Bethlehem manger will forever sym
bolize and express the world-moving
truth that God is/love and, therefore,
He gives Himself% and for men made
in His image.
Tradition ^records that when the
Wise Men from the East journeyed to
Bethlehem to worship the new-born
Child, they brought gifts.
The gift of God is life eternal, here
and hereafter. When this divine spark'
animates the bosoms of men, they, too,
begin to give.
Giving is the chief business of life
for God and men alike. What a man
gives he has. He losf.'s all else. Earth
ly immortality lies in whatever one
gives to one's fellows in service and
friendship and healing,-.
I wonder if we shall ever be able
to practice the Christmas spirit the
If that time ever comes we shall
find that most of our personal and so
cial problems, perplexities, animosities
and failures are unnecessary. If we
want spring and summer and golden
harvest, we must have the sun.—Dr.
Charles Aubrey Eaton in Leslie's.
SAINT OF VIRTUE AND PIETY
St. Nicholas Was of Unblemished
Character, According to Hone's
CCORDING to Hone's "Ancient
Mysteries". Saint Nicholas, bish
op of Myra, was a saint of great
virtue and piety. The old legend is
that the sons of a rich Asiatic, on
their way to Athens for education,
were slain by a robber innkeeper, dis
membered and their parts hidden in a
brine tub. In the morning came the
sbint, whose visions had warned him of
the crime, whose authority forced con
fession, and whose prayers restored
the boys life.
St. Nicholas is the grand patron of
the children of France, to whom he
brings bonbons for tiie good, but a
cane for the naughty child. In Ger
many he acts as an advance courier,
examining into the conduct of the
children, distributing goodies and
promises to those with good records, a
further reward which the Christ Child
brings at Christmas time. But his own
peculiar celebration takes place in a
tiny seaport in southern Italy,
On St. Nicholas day, December 6.
the sailors of the port take the saint's
image from the beautiful Church of
St Nicholas, and with a long proces
sion of boats carry it far out to sea.
Returning with it at nightfall they are
met by bonfires, torches, all the towns

dressed pilgrims, who welcome the re

Captain Cook's .Ship.
The Endeavour, in which Captain
Cook sailed from, Plymouth on August
25, 1768, was bought at the modest
price of £2,800. The small tonnage of
the Endeavour was, to Cook's practi
cal mind, one of her chief merits. She
could be easily careened and easily
handled, and when he was struggling
with the currents of the Great Barrier
Reef her captain was able to thrust
out oars through the ports of the ves
sel and thus turn her into a galley.
He crowded into this small ship a
complement of 85 men, with provis
ions for nearly two years. The main
object of Cook's expedition was to
take some astronomers- to Tahiti to
observe the transit of Venus, but he
was Instructed to proceed afterward
to "make discoveries in the south
Pacific ocean." It was in pursuit of
this secondary object that the En
deavour won her place in the history
of exploration.—Manchester Guardian.
No Perpetual Motion.
Perpetual motion has been the dream
of visionaries for centuries. Many
men have labored and experimented
on the making and invention of per
petual machines, but all have failed.
If such a macldne were invented, it
would, after It had been once set in
motion, keep in motion without draw
ing on any external source of energy.
A machine of this description would
entirely controvert the established
principle of the conservation of en
ergy, and since the establishment of
that principle the search of a perpet
ual motion had been judged visionary.
Perpetual motions have been founded
on the hydrostatic paradox, on capil
lary attraction, on electricty and mag
netism, but In every case the result
has been a failure.
