In the Spirit of Christmas
CHRISTMAS DAY brings us the consciousness that
whatever our personal animosities may bc, vvhat
evcr the strife between nations mcrcly neigh
borhood quarrels greatly magnified there is this sub
lime occasion devoted to peace and good will. Itsspirit
is the lamp which lights to higher life; its influcnce largely
supports civilization and prevents a lapse into barbarity.
Christmas spirit means Christian spirit. In tcsting its
effect, one has only to reflect upon the positions of
races, the most advanced being those of Christcndom.
China, the oldcst entity among peoples, has an admi
rable occasion upon which thc citizens strive to liquidate
all their debts. It is a national pay-up day, and in spirit
sofn'ewhat resembies our Christmas. In' Japan they
have an annual event somewhat like our New Year's
celcbration, during which the peoplc go about express
ing good will and promoting good cheer. But Christ
mas has a more elcvating effect than eithcr, in that it
not only typifies pcace and good will, but carries thc
essencc of unselnshness and pure lovc, thc most com
mon c.vpression being the bcstowal of gifts. Whcn the
Christmas influcnce gains to the point that its spirit
shall pcrmeate the affairs of cverv day in the year, thc
millennium will have arrived.
We have this day, and if we mar not its ideal its leaven
will proclucc other days of the kind. In thc making
of a newspaper we have an opportunity to vicw thc
many forces operating upon the charactcr of humanity.
We scc the good and bad, thc sincerc and insincerc,
the selfish and unsclfish. We believc thc leaven of
good is more active than that of thc opposed forces. If
we have bcen ablc to assist the right, much has bccn
due to your co-opcration and we carnestly solicit a con
tinuation of the same. Our Christmas greeting to you
is one of optimism, good cheer and heartv good wishes.

JUDGE HAMILTON
SPEAKS ON FAIR
Elected President for Second Time,
Judge Praises Fair in Accepting
Office
In nominating Judge J. C. S. Harn
ilton for the position of President of
the Addison County Agricultural
Society for the next year, Major
Robert V. McCuen paid him a de
serving complimcnt when he stated
that the Society needed the services of
a "loyal and competent ofiicial to di
rect the affairs of the organization for
the ensuing year" Among other
things, Major JSIcCuwi said: "We are
all proud of the Addison County Fair
and thc progress that has been made
during the past year. It is gratifying
to see 0 large a gathenng of represen
tative citizens from all over the County
at this Annual Meeting. It eoes to
show that Addison County Fair is one
of our most important iu3titutions and
wortliy of the interest and sunnort of
all citizens of the County."
inere was a time when it was called
the "Middlebury Fair," and the neonle
of Middlebury were justly nroud of
'their Annual Exhibition during that
period. Xoiv it has grown to a Iarger
proportion and it h referred to by all
the people of the County as "OUR
FAIR."
; "W'hen I was Secretary, I observed
with pleasure the growing intercsts of
tne l-air, hnt I was reminded of the
ueed of a sinking fund to take care of
the rcpairs and improvetnents on the
grounds. The Treasurer's report shows
that over two thousand dollars (S2,000)
was spent for this purpose last vear,
and this will be an annual lixed ex'pen
diture without a doubt. In this con
nection, we greatly miss the late
Coloncl Ilslcy, who did so much for
our Society. An active campaign for
thc sale of membersliip tickets would
be advisable, it seetns to me, to ftirnish
the nioney for this sinking fund.
"The Oflicers of the Societv labored
loug and faithful for the success of the
Fair last fall, and no one was more
ready and willing to serve and direct
the affairs of the Society than our
worthy President Our Society needs
thc services of a devoted and com
petent offieial during this period of ex
pansion. As a compliment to his ser
vices and a reward to faithful coutri
bution of time and resources, I would
suggest for your consideration the re
clection nf our present leader; but not
only that, but as a recognition of
good economic policy of business ad
ministration, the Society needs his ser
vices in that capacity, and I have the
honor and privilege of nominatkig for
President of the Society for the ensu

TO REBUILD LAKE
PLEIAD SHELTER
Shelter Destroyed By Fire
Will Be Restored
Next Spring
At a meeting of the exccutive com
mittec of thc Lake Pleiad Section o;
the Green Mountaiu Club in consulit
tiou with tlie trail committce lnt
Monday evening, it was decided to
make every eflort to rebuild Pleiad
Lodge at once with the opening of
spring. The news of this action is an
nnunced on thq authority of the Pres
ident of the section, Prin. A. S. Harn
man, and thc chairman of the trail
committce, Prof. P. C. Voter.
The acculental buruing of this lodge
some weeks ago was a conspicuous los3
to the whole Long Trail and to the
people nf all this vicinity. It had be
comc a favorite stopping-place for
through parties on the trail because of
its strategic location and its excellent
accommodations. It was also very pop
ular with picuic parties because of its
ncarness to the Ripton-Hancock road
Such parties, while out bouud on a far
expedition on the trail, found this a
convenient spot for cooking and for a
centcr to their outing by the beautiful
Lake Pleiad and m the lieavily timber
ed forest and upon the lookouts in the
vicinity north and south. The conse
quence is that the news of the destruc
tion of the lodge has brought regret to
a large number and an eagcr desire ha
been expresscd to have the lodge re
built. 1 Thc oflicers of the local section of
the Green Mountaiu Club are anxiou
to take up the enterprise and to go ou
with it as rapidly as possible The plan
is to collect building material as soou
as the weather will jiermit There will
be a widespread interest in the pro
gress of the undertaking.
