Only those who have spent months
or years from home and friends realize
just how much is. conveyed in a small
package or a letter Bearing the postmark
of home, no with what eagerness is'the
wrapper unfolded and the contents
therein devoured. Even the newspaper,
which at home is throyn aside with the
expression, "There's nothing in it," is
the most welcome of visitors, and its
every line receives our undivided atten
tion. The most trivial occurrences at
home increase in magnitude, until they
bscome all important when viewed from
far distant lands. Absence truly makes
the heart grow fonder and the dear ones
at home grow dearer as we think of the
mountains, rivers and lands which sep
arate us' from those we love.
Particularly does this feeling of home
sickness take possession of the wanderer
when the Star of Bethlehem is eeen to
approach and Christmas tide, with alt
its home cheer, "is to be spent among
strangers. Then do we in imagination
see the yule log burning brightly and the
old folks at home gather round, and as
we picture the vacant chair and wonder
if as they meet we are missed, a "feeling
of sadness comes o'er us that our souls

fight for their country? who have faced
shot and shell and braved the pestilence
of foreign lands that the Christoiastide
might Tiot find our land dishonored, but
that they might offer as a present to the
United States the lands which they have
bought with' their olood? In return
ought we not to do the little which lieB
in our power to cheer their loneliness and
remind them that in the hearts of those
at home they have an abiding place? In
fancy we see, them anxiously awaiting
the ship which bears the Christmas
mail, and watch them with tearful eyes
remove the wrappings and press ' to
their lips the loving gift of father, moth

not a sister in the happy days gone by."
Some are too weak to open the packages,
but are no lesB anxious to behold the
contents, the sight of which seems to
cool the fevered brow and bid the aching
heart be still.
Have we made the side lights thrown
on the picture too heavy? should they
have a .brighter hue? The happy look
on the faces of those who receive the
Christmas boxes from relatives and
friends will brighten up' the darkesty
picture which could be drawn, and even
lend its splendor to the Christmas star
which shines over Manila. Let us not
forget the brave hearts in far off lands
who long for a token from home when
the thought of the greatest gift ever
given , to man takes possession of us.

Market For American Wheat.
The estimates compiled by the depart
ment of agriculture represent the wheat
crop of the world, this year, as the larg
est on record, though its magnitude is
somewhat offset by the small aaiount
carried over from last year. The yield
in Europe, as a whole, is found to be far
in excess of the previous season, though
there is evidence that the trop is short
in Russia, an important source of sup
ply, but one from which it seems to be
impossible to .procure accurate figures.
One of the best evidences that Russia
Has n wheat to spare this year is found
in the report, persistent' though unoffic
ial, that the export of wheat from that
country will seon be. prohibited, while
another significant fact is the chartering
of a Bteamer to load grain in this country
for RusBia. It is reported that, despite
the favorable showing of the Eastern
crops, more than sixty steamers have
been chartered within the past ten days
to carry grain across the Atlantic, which
is another indication that Russia will
not be able to furnish its usual quota.
More than that, it seems to show that
the American farmer is sure of a foreign
market, no matter, what may . be the
condition of the world's grain crops.
