Another, In which real religious fer.Sin

the story of the first Christmas tree.
There stands at Altenbergen, in -'2
northern Germany a statue erected In
1811 In honor of Saint Boniface; and
the place of the statue Is said to be
the site of the first Christian church
in north Germany.
Boniface, who must not be confused
with any of the nine popes who bore
the name, was a Briton by birth, and
his name was Wynfrith. Declining
high ecclesiastical honor, he chose to
be a missionary to the rude tribes of
the German forests. Of these tribee )

they were Implacable In war and

There they gathered at midnight at
the winter solstice, and offered a far1
Lad as a sacrifice to call back the re

Thus they were assembled at the
Yuletide in the year 724. As the mid
night approached, an old priest raised )
the hammer to strike down the child,
when Boniface Interposed a strong
arm and an eager word. He told them
of a child who was born seven hun
dred years before, and how he show
ed to men that they need offer no
more bloody sacrifices. H-e told them
of the love of God and the beauty of
his service. The stern men heard and

fell, it left a young fir growing be
