many, through their peneroslty and
kindness of heart, to give more than
their means would justify. This situ

even In the work of their own hands,
than toiue. other person has, whose
gift represents a value of hundreds of
dollars. No matter about the value
of the gift, whether It be large or
small, it should be given, and also
received, with a kindly, loving spirit,
a feeling which should prevail at this
season above all seasons a feeling
of '"I'eace on Karth, and Good Will

Co. Christmas creates and fosters
the same sentiment among mankind
that we ordinarily feel for a lodge
brother In other words. It makes
powerfully for a general fraternal
feeling among men, the "brother
hood of man." This, I think, Is the
most admirable features of Ynletlde.

most admirable features of Christ

the great les-son of unselfishness.
Watch the youngsters ns they pick
out presents for "papa" and "mam

Christmas morning ns they forget
their own presents in enjoyment of
the pleasure tin !r presents give, and

great lesson of self-sacrifice at Christ

Grain A Christmas sentiment? Oh,
a Merry Christmas and a Happy
New Year to all our customers
that's all.
I, F.. Taft, Tuff Transfer Co The
great evil of the Christmas season Is
the feeling that all gifts must be
"returned" that Is, that whoever
receclves a present must Rive one In
return. I believe that would lie
remedied if gifts were confined to the
Immediate family circle and to the
needy, who In the nature of things
could not "return" the favor.

ina doesn't seem the same as it used
to when we were boys. Why? Well,
not liecause the day has changed,
but because we liavechanged grown

now we should make Christmas

seemed to us.

we shift our views regurding Christ

pleasure at this season In receiving

we get more happiness In making
