Tho. Horror? of Christmas-As They
Appear to a Cynic.
In the December American Maga
zine James Montgomery Flagg, the
famous wit and artiBt, doon a Christ
mag piece in words and pictures in
which he describes in part as fol
lows the cynical view of Christmas
that a perfectly decent man had In a
dream :
"To continue the horrors, there ls
thja',family reunion! What can he
more doleful than a whole dey gives
up to squatting in th ? perfervid circle
of your immediate t ood relations? In
ones or twos lt la not necessarily un
bearable, but to be pinioned for 12
hours In the lap of osculatory con
sanguinity la flattening to tbe soul!
Your family while they treat you with
the brutal affection and disrespectful
familiarity nf old friends, know, you
Blight ly! They are always presumpt
uous! Never does human intercourse
descend so near to the Ufo In a tly
tray as on Christmas. Everyone walka
and crawls about all over every other
one's head ! You have to git and beam
and "ShmerrychrlB'muB' and 'No, I
aald lt first!' And a bunch of obscuro
cousins and aunts crowd in on the al
ready perspiring mass and have to be
kissed through veils-veils don't help
much-perhaps a little!
"Then comes that fiendishly pouder
