THE INTERN AL. NOT THE
It seems to be the spirit o f the times
to be dissatisfied with what we have.
Do we see someone with more than
wo have, especially among our assoc
iates. we want all that that person
has, and entirely overlook others of
our associates who have less and who
in turn will become more dissatisfied
when they see us milled to those who
have more than they do.
Did we wish only for the things
which mean comfort for ourselves, for
the things which make us better able
to instruct others in a better way to
live and for the things which would
enable us to in some way make others
happier, our wishes might be noble
ones, but to have things merely for the
■ me purpose of making a display of
j them is not only inelegant but is the
underlying cause of the spirit o f du*
-atisfuctioii and unrest. We not only
1 keep ourselves dissatisfied but we lr

I hou elected to the highest office
within the gift of the people o f his
native city, the same in which as a
child he was the victim o f an accident
which robbed him of his eyesight.
Not having his eyesight, he probably
did not note when he was not dressed
as some o f his scholmates were dressed.
He did not note that the furnishings
of hif home won' more meager than
the furnishings in the homes o f his
lie did not even complain that he
was handicapped as none o f his mates
were handicapped. lie did not com
plain that his mates had more than
wealth o f any magnitude could buy—
the precious gift of sight. That such
was the case is shown by the fact
that he graduated from the grades and
high school, not only with those o f his
own age but with such honors that he
won a university scholarship.
It is most refreshing to thing that
in this great democratic country it is
possible for n lad without worldly
goods and without eyesight to get an
education equal to that available to
the wealthy, and this thought in part
recompenses for disgust with those
whose temperaments are such that they
can not absorb education if there be
any lack of bodily adornment or the
least clash m the appearance o f that
Those who think have observed that
only once in centuries i> a person re
uiembered for the lavish raiment he
wore, while the thousands whose names
are an inspiration to greater effort
are those of whom there is no reconi
o f the kind o f clothes they wore, ex

It has been true for ages, it is true
now. uud it ever will be true that w«•
are remembered for the things we do
and not for display o f wealth. The
clothes which we wear now may up
|H*ar hideous to those of another gen
oration, but the thing* we think and
the deeds we do will no»

ages through which they may live.
THE ABBREVIATED CHRISTMAS
The Rainier Review takes up the
cudgels against the “ Xmas” spelling
o f Christmas*. In newspaper work, ot
course, that kind o f an abbreviation
is taboo, as it should be. Represent
ing Christ with a cross, as The Review
says, is unfortunate. He might have
gone strouger ami called it inelegant
and almost sacrilegious. The question
in cur mind is whether or not the
abbreviation came about in the manner
The Review, uud many others with n
commendable seal for improvement of
our language, suggest. “ Christ’ * comes
from a Greek word, the definition of
which is “ the anointed. *’ The first
letter of this Greek word is “ X .’ * It
seems more likely to us that the nb
brevintion comes down to us from a
time when those who observed Christ
mas were more familiar with the Greek
language than are we today, and that
the “ X ” never was intended to rep
resent the cross.
However, we are
glad to join The Review in suggesting
that the word be spoiled in full.
If you haven't used the little Rod
Cross stickers oil your Christmas mail
you have not imbibed the Christmas
spirit and are
likely to make the
recipients o f vour letters think you
are either selfish or thoughtless
W e wish all of our friends and patrons a most enjoy
able and happy Christmas and bespeak for each
all that Christmas day implies
