HAPPY NEW
YEAR
From time immemorial it has been the custom for
people to offer each other good wishes on the first day
of the'new arriving year. It has becomeso much amat
ter of routine with most of us that it has been condensed
to the stereotyped phrase "Happy New Year" in our
greeting.
This is the season of beginnings, and the time of
careful consideration, when the industrious householder
or thrifty merchant casts up bis accounts and lays his
canny plans forthe coming months. It is the time for
resolutions and resolves, and he'must be of poor metal
indeed, who refrains from this stock-taking, and who
mike3 no doughty resolutions merely for the flimsy rea
son that 'if he doesn't makeany he can't treak any'. The
man who makes!a good resolution, sincerely and honestly
and with a real intention of keeping to it, even though he
breaks it in a month or a day, is better than the man who
from a sheer moral laziness or lack of stamina refuses to
make any at all.
Each ofjthe citizens of Holbrook can make his own
resolutions for the coming year, but it takes the commu
nity, as a whole, to resolve upon the accomplishment of
good things for the town itself.
Let us first cast up accounts. How do we stand as
a civic body? JAre'we atjthe tail of the procession of pro
gress, or havejwejdone welljwith"the"davs that are past?
A look around town will tell the tale of what has been
accomplished. The city has many things at present which
several years ago were only discernible in the far-seeing
eye of the enthusiast.
There are cement sidewalks, electric lights, a water
works system, and tile laid for the sewers, and are not
these achievements of the first magnitude in city build
ing. So much f orour pastlperformances, now what to
resolve for the future.
Surely no one will contradict the fact that there are
an undue amount of tin cans and defunct automobile
fenders ornamenting the scenery close to our town. Land
scape gardening is the correct thing, and artists often
produce effects which are wierd to the'funtrained eye,
but we doubtjthat themost
would claim that a fringe of rusty tin cans added any
thing of beauty to the environment. Then think how the
sanitary board would view such a free home and incuba
tor for flies as these indiscriminate dumping ground fur
z nish. Some place must be provided where trash can be
disposed of out of sight'and sometimes we might add,
out of smelling distance. Then the use of this designat
ed area should be strictly enforced upon the community.
That is, we ourselves, should enforce it upon ourselves.
Only in such a manner is any law or ordinance 100 per
ent effective.
Then we have streets along between the houses in
this town. Strange, but true. Some are in fairly good
condition, and some are in very poor shape. It rather
hurts to have people say 'the roads are all right when
you get out of town' the inference is so plain.
Now these things can't be done by "The City Dads"
without your cooperation, Mr.'Citizen'of Holbrook. So
its up to you to make a few resolutions Jthis New Year as
to your own individual attitudeltoward community wel
fare during the next twelve'months.
We solemnly asseverate
to the shining sun and call it
two jobs within the gift of the
les3 than those of City Councilman or Member of the
School Board, they do not come within our knowledge.
They must both strive for the welfare of the community
and then often experience the sensation of fighting with
a large share of said community in order to thrust upon
it measures designed for.its
ficials are merely human and
ing mistakes, but it is up to
who are seeking to better local conditions and who have
all ready accomplished so much injthat direction.
In this coming year it is 'up. to' every man, woman,
and child, in Holbrook to help
bigger and cleaner for the coming year.
We have our hopes for
twelve months, for the finding of oil, nature's store of
flowing gold, and we must
to meet most unusual demands in the way of rapid
growth. Let's wish our town a Happy and Prosperous
New Year and then turn to and work "to make it come
true.

BLIZZARD was brewing
Little cutting pieces of snow
were being blown In whirl!

g& tbe street. Huddled dowr
ijigr in his coat stood a newsboy
of some eight or nine years.
His face was drawn with the
old and be beat bis hands against
bis sides to keep them warm.
Last-minute Christmas shoppers
hurrying along to get their various
errands done, gave no thought to the
little fellow who pestered them with
his papers. He ought to bave known
better when they bad so many thing
to think about
"Yen, all the, newi the latest news
Won't cha buy one, mister? I only
have a couple more." He looked ur
pleadingly Into the face of a passer
by.
"Sorry, sonny." smiled the man,'
"got one here now that I probably
won't ever get a chance to read 60
busy," and he hurried along bis way.
Tbe rush of pedestrians subsided a
moment Tbe boy singled out a young
woman, as he said, "She looks kind.
IT! try her."
"Teh all the latest news Just oul
won't cha buy one. please, lady 5
I only have a few."
She opened her purse and started
to hunt for tbe money.
Tve Just got to sell these papers
out early tonight 'cause It's my last
.nance to buy that doll. You know,
my little sister, they say. Isn't very
well, and the only thing she says she
wants Is an orange for Christmas, but
I know better." He paused for breath.
She Opened Her Purse.
"She wants a doll, but she thinks she
can't ask for it 'cause we haven't
money for dolls. I have, though,"
be said promptly. "I've been watching
a doll In one of tbe windows here. I'm
going by tonight and get It"
"What is your name, son?"
"Jacques and my sister's ma
petite soeur Marthe."
"Zshackf What a queer "
"No; it isn't." he said, anticipating
what she was going to say. "My
mother is French. Those names are
beautiful to us," he added after a
pause.
"Where do you live, Jacques?"
"Sixty-nine Kensington Square! Top
door, back two rooms, I've got that
down pat now, haven't I?"
"Yes, you won't get lost right soon,"
she replied aa she put her arm around
him, and gave him a gentle tap on the
ihoulder. "Merry Christmas, Jacques,"
and she was on her way. She stopped
a little way down the street, however,
wrote something down, then hurried
in.
Another half hour found Jacques
bugging an orange and a little doll
under his coat as he trudged along
home. When he opened tbe door a
little voice started chanting, "Frere
Jacques, Frere Jacques you're late
tonight"
."Yes, Marthe. Today I was talk
ing to Santa on the corner, and he
jnld he was awfully busy. He
doubted If he would get all around
this year."
"Ob !" said Marthe In .a disappointed
tone.
Jacques' mother was sewing busily
upon a garment she was Intent upon
finishing. Tomorrow was Christmas,
His Mother Was Just as Excited as He.
and no sewing was going to be left
over to bother her.
Marthe's bedtime came, and Jacques
fixed his presents In preparation for
the morrow. He had found a Christ
mas tree branch In the street, and this
he made into a little tree under which
he placed his gifts.
Christmas morning dawned brightly
in tbe little French home. Jacques'
surprise was complete, for Marthe
went into raptures over the tree and
her presents. She alternately hugged
and kissed her doll, keeping up a con
stant chatter to it In French. The
orange and a few other presents thut
she had found under the tree she put
on the shelf, so that she could admire
them while she rocked het doll.
Jacques bad bad his surprise, too
"Give and It shall be given unto you"
for his two packets under tbe tree
bad grown to be six or seven.
"Mother." be said, "I think I will
bave to try my new mittens and see
exactly bow warm they are." So say

specimens for the American Museum
of Natural History.
On one of his exploring trips Mr.
Holt and a companion got lost In the
jungle and ran out of food.
"We lived mostly on monkeys dur
lng the 25 days," he said, "hut on one
occasion we had to resort to eating
snake stew or face starvation. We
ate the stew. We had killed a poi
sonous snake about nine feet long, cut
off Its head, took out the sirloin and
stewed it It tasted something like
eel. Not so good, you know, but then
anything tastes good when you're real
hungry."

Was It frozen shut, stuck, or whut was
the matter?
With his mother's help the door was
opened. To their surprise they found
that a huge pile of packages had been
the cause of their trouble.
Jacques gave a cry of delight
as he pounced upon the bundles.
His mother was Just as excited as
he, as she helped carry in the stuff.
Then followed one of the happiest
hours the family hnd ever known
