NEW YEAR'S DAY
Now Ycar'B Day io tha flrat day of
the year. The custom of celebrating
by some religious obaervance, gen
erally nccotlipttnled; by festive re
joicing, the flrat duy of the year, op
pears to have prevailed among most
of the undent nations. The Jewn, the
Egyptians the Chinese, the Romans,
and the Mohummcdans, although dif
fering as to tlio time from which they
reckoned the commencement of the
year, all regarded It as a day of special
Interest. Iu Rome, the year anciently
began In March; and when Numa,
according to tho ancient legeud, traus
furred It to the 1st of January, that day
was held sncred to Janus Blfrons, who
was thus supposed to (urn at once
back upon tho old year and forward
Into tho new. On the establishment
of Christianity, the usage of a solemn
inauguration of the New Year was
retained; bill considerable variety pre
vailed, both as to the Umo and as to
tho manner of Its celebration. Christ
mas Duy, the Annunciation (25th of
March), Easter Day, and 1st March,
havoall.at different times or places,
shared with the M of January the
honor of opening the New Year; nor
wnst it till late lu tho 16th c, that the
1st of January was universally ac
cepted as the first day of the New
Year. The early fathers Chrysotom,
Ambrose, Augustine, Peter Cbrys-
ologua, and others In reprobation of
the Immoral and superstitious ob
servances of the pngaa festival, pro
hibited in Christian Ubo all festive
celebration; and, on tho contrary, di
rected that the Christian year should
be opened with a day of prayer, fast
lug, and humiliation. The mandate,
however, wan but partially observed,
Tho festal character of the day, gen
erally speaking, w8 pertiuachualy
preserved, but the day wns also ob
served as a day of prayer; aud this
charucter was the mora readily at
tached to It when the year began with
the 1st or January, as that day, being
the clgth day of the nativity of our
Lord, was held to bo the commemora
tion of (be circumcision. Luke II. 21.
The social observances of the first
day of the New Year appear to have
been Jti substance the same In all ages.
From the earliest recorded celebration,
we find notice of feasting and the In
terchange, of presents as usages of the
day. Buetonlus alludes to the bring
ing of presents to the capital; and
Tacitus makes a similar referonco to
tno practice of giving and receiving
New Year's gifts. This custom was
continued by tho Christian kingdoms
Into which the "Vesteru Empire was
divided. In England we And many
examples of it, oven as a part of the
public expenditure of the court, so far
down as the reign of Charles II. and,
ua all our antiquarian writers men
tion, the custom of Interchanging
presents was common In all classes of
Boolety. In Franco and England it
still subsists, although eclipsed In the
Utter country by the still more popu
lar practico of Christmas gifts. In
many countries, the night of New
Year's Eve, 'St. Bylvester's Eve,"
was celebrated with great festivity,
which was prolonged, till after 12
o'olock, when the New Year was
Hshered In with congratulations, com
Wlmeulary visits, and mutual wishes
for a happy New Year. This is an
ano'ent Scottish custom, which also
prevails in many pans oi uermmiy,

0HEI8TMAB AT METHODIST HILL
"My energy belongs to the world
and to the Futhcriand" motto of Wil
liam If., the present Kaiser of Ger
many. Aud tho simple German farmers
who comprise what is now known as
the Methodist Hill district are no less
enthusiastic for the welfare ot their
neighbors and their church than the
Illustrious Emperor in whose domains
they were born.
Our own President, Theodore Roose
velt, has said that the Germans are
among the beetclllzens that have ever
steppod upon American soil.
Honest, industrious and patriotic,
thn German has played no smull part
in the development of our great nation
Tho prariesof Nebraska and Kansas
were considered worthless until Ger
man eL'ergy and German stability put
the hand to the plow and trans
formed that vast scope of country into
the "Paradise of the West."
Like their brethren in Nebraska and
Kansas, the Germans who two years
ago settled in the vicinity that is now
known ns Methodist Hill, will, in due
time, faro- well and bo couted
among tho moBt prosperons farmers
aud best citizens in Central Oregon.
This was evidenced at their Christ
mas celebration laStHaturday svening.
The German MethodiBt Church was
crowded from the platform to the door,
even our American friends being in
evidence throughout the large au
dlence. Not one left the building
without having shared in the liber
allty of thn church.
It would be unjust to mention such
a well rendered program without
giving due credit to the pastor, Rev
E. J. Tragllo, to whoso UntlHng en
ergy is due tho success of the occasion
The tree was so well decorated and
the numbers so well rendered that no
one could And cause for criticism
Tho boisterous stamping and whistling
that is usually a prominent feature at
such entertainments was not in evi
dence here, as the pastor had in the
opening aonouueembut Informed the
audience that such was against the
policy of the church and would not be
The cornet duets ot Rev. Tragllo and
.Mr. Rlcheu were especially well re
ceived, as was also the song by the
male Quartet, which consisted of
Messrs. R. Strnsser, L. Aronsmeier,
0 Strasser and J. A. Hoffmann.
Mr. C. Strasser made the closing
speech aud presented to the pastor, in
behalf of tho church, a neat purse, a
token of appreciation for the untiring
services rendered iu the past year.
