THE FIRST CHRI8TMA3.
And now the earth at last was stlH, The world so full of many folk, Who feared the sword flash and the stroke Of whips and sword blades raised to kill «r the snow white pall of peace, ,i. "%e millions waited for release ,».' mi battling hordes and fire flame, ou came! God-like, complete! Men of good will! could they be free, Eternally? You came, O Bringer of the Sun, The figures and the very sum, End and beginning, mortal, King, Rose and the roses that you fling. The millions waited and your eyes Smiled on the Shepherds and the Wise, But if on earth there were but one. And I that one— YOtt would have come! Maurice Franci* Egan. CHRISTMAS CARDS, In looking over my last year's Christmas cards, I have come to this conclusion: Christmas cards are of two kinds those that are beautiful, aesthetically beautiful—and those that are not. Some people object very strenuously to the latter, I do not. In fact, I love them. Of course, I reverence those rich white cards with their heavy chaste engravings and their single exquisite designs, and I put them away, for the reason that they are too lovely to destroy, but I have a sneaking affection for the other kind, for I know that people that send them are not afraid of my criticism. They do not send them to parade wealth, or their knowledge of the correct thing, but rather because they are the expression of themselves —hearty and goodwilled, if not ar tistic. Let us look at a few of the cards in my basket. This one would cause an artist to go into ecstasies, and bears the name of Helen Pemberton Palmer, but I know that Helen Pemberton Palmer sat at her desk with a pile of such exquisite cards before her, copied my name from her alphabetical list, and sent this card with only a passing thought of me. And tomorrow I shall go to that exclusive shop on Grand avenue and select an equally elegantly proper card for Helen Pem berton Palmer and shall send it—with only a conventional thought of her. Here is another It reads: "A Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year from Katey Whalen," and I know that Katey Whalen passed by the "two-for five" assortment and paid a nickel for this one because the holly went clear around and it had two bells instead of one, and she wanted me to have it be cause she loved me. Can you wonder that I love It? May He support us all the day long, till the shades lengthen, and the even ing comes, and the busy world is hush ed, and the fever of life is over, and our work is done! Then in His mercy may He give us a safe lodging, and a holy rest, and peace at last!—Cardinal Newman. ZEASE YOUR EYES! Your Friend would be delighted with an extra pair—a dress pair—of glasses.
