In his nnmo bloody wars have bcun fought, bitter persecutions wnecd ; uds of iuli m'c mercy performed, deeds of iinma culiito cjinrity done. To this day. poor human nature blunders in its compre hension of tho duties Christiani'y re qnlies; fallible, imperfect man .stum bles and gropes along the dark high way that leads to Peitcct Good.

To thoso whom heads aro bowed before tliu thrlnu of Him who brought tho glad Tidings, will como a holy calm, a peace to the trou bled soul a solace to tlio weary ami a comfort to tho soret'y tried, that noth ing on earth that nothing winch is of tliu world can bring.
