•'The feeble trtmble before opinon,
the foolish defy it, the wise judge it, the
skillful direct it."
When you go into a store and see (the
things that before Christmas were selling
nt a good, stiff price now "being sold for
half that you paid for them just buy up
a supply for the next time and say
-After Christmas it frequently developes

to you. Especially if the family in the

Postal and express officials through
out the country say that the Christmas
trade this year has been greater than any
other year, and it is to be hoped merrier.
All the outward indications are to the
effect that it is an 'era of good feeling
and prosperity.
"Throughout the land there seems to
have been many homes where the Christ
mas day was, made cheerless because of
the lack of fuel. It is possible- that be
cause there was no coal to buy that there
was more money to sffend on presents
but that fact is cold comfort.
It is a little significant that wireless
telegraphy first successfully carried on
should be a Christmas gift to the world,
and that an invention that promises to
revolutionize certain parts of the com
mercial interests of the world should be
received with such little apparent con

the twenty-fire years across which the1
Review has stretched its influence these
cases have been many aid at times exer

at time to its detriment. It is a plea
sure to the writer to state that, the past
two years have seen a marked cahnge in
the affairs of the Review. Some enemies
have been made, but they are generous
enemies,* disagreeing with the policy of
the paper, but this is to be expected for
the man or the paper that has no enemies

battles and determined to overcome all

The Straight and Narrow Way.
Recent investigations-en the part of
the officials of the Methodist church in
the east reveal the fact that wbileithe
church has been busy raising $20,000,000
during the time taken for that purpose,
which was one year, there has not one
soul been added to the church roll. This
is significent in that it demonstrates the
soundness of the doctrine "Seek first the
kingdom of heaven and all things else
shall be added unto you." There is this
much to be said against the methods of
the modern preacher he is often too busy
telling business men how to operate their
businesses or running the government
from the pulpit where the ethics'of reli
gion should apply only to the individual
8alvatioa4f man. Reforms never come
about through the accumulation of money
or the attempting to overthrow the tables
of the coney changers it is brought about
through the individual, and the preacher
who forsakes the widow and the fatherless
and neglects the ministrations to tbe poor
for the purpose of telling how Christ
would do this of that must inevitably
find at the end of the year the same re
suit as that attained by the Methodist
church. The mission of the gospel is
uot to rawe money it is tosavesoukumd
in doing this it has invariably been de
monstrated that the money to carry en
the work has been forthcoming. The
world loves a sincere raanv .Deep devo
tion to principal and a fearlessness in
tbe determination to do right, and fail
in this it is then time to shake. the dost
of that city from the feet and depart.
Religionjdoes uot consist in the' building
of churches nor the aocumnlation of pro
perty, and where this principal maul
feat the rich wilFfew it because of tbe
expense and the poor are not wanted be
they have nothing to contribute. The
woik of religion is at the^ bottom* the
top belongs to the individual.

This is the stason of. the year when
there is a general cleaning up in the
places'of business and a couuting over
to see what the gaius or losses for the
year have been and the case of a loss
there is immediate scheming to make up
the loss. But loss is loss and is never
replaced. Fire may destroy propert
aud the damage be covered by insurance
and we say there is no IOBS. But tpere
is though it is distributed over a/wide
territory. The burden may be/taken
from the shoulders of the immediate
loser but it finds lodgment on those of
the o'hers, but the loss is there just the

word loss as at a game of cards. Men
