One thousand nine hundred and
eight times the star of Bethlenem has
iiung over the' expectant world, and
now it radiates with- brighter effulg
ence and with greater hope than ever
Jiefore since One said, "Suf
icr little children to come unto me,
ior such is the kingdom of heaven."
(Christinas Is preeminently and ab
' sorblngly children's day and all the
world seeks through Its blessed mem
ories and traditions to feel again and
to realize the simplicity and happy
experiences of childhood. Old men
with whitened locks and wrinkled
.faces, young men who put their tr.ust
only in personal strength and hold
.both truth and error under suspicion,
.men of affairs who coldly view tho
world as a game, the winning of
which means wealth and power, seem
touched by the universal soul of
things, for a little space, and every
body realizes that "It is better to
Jvo than to receive." Blessed
As we go to press Christmas Eve
iias come to us in its merry journey
round the happy, rolling world. Be
fore reaching us it lit the caudles at
.St. Petersburg and sang its joyful
.song of "peace, good will on earth"
and now the children sleep dreaming'
of the Christmas, morning soon to
Arcak. In Berlin, Paris and London
And in nil the far off land of Europe
ue children sleep. ' As we pass in
fancy up and down the streets of tho
western world cities, we gaze through
the windows of palace and cottage
and listen to tho laughter of the lit
tle ores or feast on the simplicity of
ihe happy smiles. In the streets of
the farther west there are hurrying
.crowds of men and women, all of
whom are searching the gaily lighted
shop windows or stores for gifts or
frt-aring their purchases home that
"thoy may enjoy the privilege of giv
ing. At Christmas time the world's
coniinjito face is tho face of child
hood. All the wiles of artlul, wrlnk
'Jeil, striving, struggling life are put
jaf.idi- and truth t.its In unaccustomed
places. "Such Is the kingdom of
Heaven" nnd "a little child shall

the ptoplo of Coos Bay havo a right
to fee that thoy occupy tho Christ
mas of 1907 is ono of unusual ex
periences to man. Children aro
here who never saw tho roses bloom
and the hill sides look green, at
ChiiFliuas time. Thoy havo never
ween the boats conio and go on tho
ibroad oxpnuse of unfrozen wator on
Vhrlstmas Day. Christmas will not,
at first, seem liko Christmas without
una slelghbells, tho wliito snow cov
ered Holds the ley streets and tho
uurs. But soon tho impression of
.strangeness will disappear for tho
nuillo of childhood and the simplicity
of truth and love aro hero also. At
ChrUtmas tinio wo all ronow our
youth by giving and all of us beconio
little children again. Let us "do as
wo would be done by." Tho Times
