City Attorney and his report is

: When the next issue of this
paper appears, are we right in
the midst of the greatest holiday
season this world knows and cel
ebrates; therefore we say again!
A Merry Chritmas to All. Old
Santa Claus will make his rounds
same as each preceding year; the
children hang up their stockings,
the grown ups wait eagerly for
a rememberance from their
friends and relatives and every
one is full of Christinas cheer.
Those who know not of Christ
mas in this world are few and to
be pitied, because at this time
the heart goes out to make others
happy, and be it ever so small a
present, none who has anyone
anywhere should let this Christ
mas time pass without giving
something to cheer the heart.
Christmas is the time of giving;
eager little faces see the shop
windows where Santa Claus has
his display; thoughtful grown
ups go about from store to store
looking for something to make
him or her glad and it’s right it
is so, because many a one gives
his last present and many a one
receives his last present this year!
Therefore, remember all those
you love and care for! Friend,
Mother and Father and sister
and brother are watching the
postman, waiting for what you
sent them with a cheerful heart!
It’s sad to be disappointed; sad
to see a face show grief, when
just a litte token would have
made them happy and glad and
blessed you. Don’t say none
cares for you, Friend, —there is
someone, somewhere, who waits
and thinks of you; wondering
what you are doing, wondering
if you think of them today, j
Christmas Day! Don’t let your
heart grow callous, don’t drift
away from your better self, get
busy and “Get the Christmas
spirit’’, get that happy gleam in
to your eyes, which speaks of
joy and Christmas cheer. You
won’t forget the moments when
you made someone happy. It ling
ers in your mind and you’ll never
miss the expense, beause it is not
what you give, but how you give!
It’s not to late today, if you per
chance have forgotten this great
festive time; get in, folks and get
the Christmas cheer! Let it be:
“Peace on Earth ane Good Will
to Men.’’ It pays handsomely,
because all year long will you re
member and be remembered;
what greater joy is there than
Christmas time.

The next day when Miss Bellows j

insisted. Everybody else is and we

That cherished spot, however,
j brought up poignant memories of
hours W’hen Ned had been by her
side Lizzie in a desolate, unhappy
way, w’ent way over to a corner of
the garden where a network of vines
Inclosed an old-fashioned tree seat.
The loneliness and seclusion led to
tears now. Lizzie fairly cried herself
to sleep.
It must have been an hour later
when the chug-chug of a machine
aroused her. »
“Its an automobile and it’s stop
ping here," she murmured. “They are'
strangers ana tney nave driven the
machine into the shadow of the trees.
Oh, dear!”
Lizzie shivered as she thought of
the reports from the next township
of a band of robbers who had raided
n score of farmhouses while the occu
pants were absent.
Two men silently and mysteriously
stole past the gate, glanced up at the
grim, silent house, went around to itj
side and then the affrighted Lizzie
beard a window raised.
“Ob, they are robbers, sure
enough!” she gasped “They hare
broken into the house. What shall I
A sudden inspiration came to her
mind as she glanced at the automo
bile. She did not believe she could
quite run one alone, but she knew' a
pood deal about its construction from
casual observation.
“I can creep under ihe fence, reach
the machine and they can’t see me,”
she planned “Then I’ll hurry down
the road and give the alarm.”
1 Lizzie reached the stalled machine.
She leaped nimbly to its step. For
only a moment, her hand was busy
groping over its mechanism. A little
flutter of excitement and satisfaction
escaped her lips as she slipped some,
thing into her pocket. Then Lizzie
sped down the Bhadowy road with
“ n h. dear! T wish I had gone the
| other way—but, then the robbers
; might, have seen me," she breathed, as

ing Lizzie faltered. Then the urgency
of the occasion Impelled her to ac

the bright lamplight, streaming out
into the garden.
“There's robbers at our house and
the folks are all away,” she cried out,
and Ned was on bis feet in an instant.
He was outside, a gun in hand, be

how she blurted out her story or how
she acted during that, wild run. She
lost all her resentment, once again in
that dear companionship.
"There they are," she fluttered, ns

figures of two men were to be ob

The machine was loaded with plunder
they had taken from the house.
Ned shouted at them and then fired
a shot tn the air. That, was the last
of the robbers.
“I don’t see why they didn’t make
off with + he machine,” he remarked.
“Why, I had taken away the spark

Ned admiringly, “Come back to the
