(Hy Frank U Stanton.) ,
How strange It seems (death to all dreams, and the darkness where
they shiver! )
I meet you nftor all these years, and feel no pulses quiver!
No more for me that eye bo bright a light supernal treasure;
I meet you as a dream might meet the ghosts of former pleasures
Your lips as red as In youth's crimson
How st ran j.' e It sc-cms! ,
And In your eyes the same bright skies that made In dark tho daytimtj;
And yet. for eyes, mid lips, and still the fairest of all faces,
I meet you as a ghost misht meet strange ghosts in undreamed spaces!
I think not now of all the tears the grief the vain endeavor,
Your hand in mine rests icily ,and falls from mine forever.
And still the same smile as of old, and all the old time graces
Yet I meet you as the lost might meet the lost in unknown spaces!

THE GIFT AND THE GIVER
OLD SCROOGE, Dickens' famous character, is probably
the most famous hater of Christmas in the world. '
Christmas Bah!" said old Scrooge.
But there are thousands of men, women and children in this
country w ho Bah" with Scrooge either before or after Dec. 25.
Scrooge hated Christmas because he neither gave nor received
the right things in the right spirit. He has imitators for the
tame reason. .
The object of Christmas giving is to make those to whom
you give happy. That is the only way you can make YOUR
SELF happy. You cannot make those you care for happy by ill-
tynwaerea guts, it our gilt means nothing except a package
icd with red ribbon with holly wreaths on it, it is valueless
v uner to ine giver or the receiver, no matter whether its wrap-
LitK9 tuyer a uiamona necklace or a liitycent necktie.
To give real Christrilas gifts you must put thought as well
as money into them thought for the welfare and profit of the
future as well as pleasure for the moment.
"The gift without the giver is bare."
AVOID FIRE DANGERS
FTl HE insane suggestion of a lighted window candle for
1 Christmas Eve, with its inevitable tragic consequences,
has again made its appearance, it was stated today by
the National Board of Fire Underwriters.
John H. Stedman, of Rochester, New York, has originated
what he calls a "Christ-Candle" movement and has sent out &
pamphlet urging that it be adopted in all the homes of the coun
try. This highly dangerous bit of sentimentality is based upon
the "old tradition' that "a lichted candle set in the window on I
Christmas Eve will guide the Babe of Bethleherrf to your home
that he may bring you happiness.' Thjs suggestion has been
puoiisqea by a magazine of national circulation.
Among the numbers given were:
"The Journey of the Pilgrims." ly
Dorothy Hampton; "tJoiiig to Grand
ma's": hy Coliata Johnson, and "Tha
Little Pilgrim Maid," by Muriel Clark,
Other numbers included "America,' '
'Santa Cluus Will Come Tonight,"
'Pilgrim ringer Play," "Hymn of
Thanks." "Pilgrim Characters."
The visitors were next ushered into
the second grade room whore a Dutch

tion of Miss Johnson, The Pilgrim

turned into a virgin forest with the
tepee of Nokomis as the outstanding
feature. This setting served for the
home of Hiawatha' Which was acted by
members of this grade in verse, song
and dance. The leading characters
were Hiawatha, Donald Temple: No
komis. Molly Liang: Iago, Charles
Rohrman. The Firefly Dance by eight
little girls and thb Owl Lullaby sung
by four boys "were especially attractive.
Miss Hendricks in arranging the pro-
grain used especial care to see that
each child was featured. Major Lee

The fourth grade room, continuing
the story of the Pilgrims, represented
them on their way to church dressed
in quaint costumes and carrying guns
for protection. They told of the pas
sage from Holland to America, of the
first winter spent here, and of the first
Thanksgiving. The latter part of the
program commemorated the modern
Thanksgiving. The program wir so
arranged as to include with few ex
ceptions all members of the grade. Kid

sented by John Mover, Hazel William

The interest taken hy parents was
especially gratifying, there being more

pectation that some minor changes :

The second part of the program
consisted of a dramatization of Long
fellow's "Courtship of Miles Standlsh
by the seventh grade. Characters were
Prlscilla, Knld Leach; Standlsh Leon

These and other characters were
cleverly costumed. t

forth was in December, 1917, when the American Red Cross sug-
gesiea mat paper tied Cross 'service flags be placed in all win
dows with a lighted candle behind them. The National Board
of Fire Underwriters immediately called the attention of the
JVashington Headquarters of the American Red Cros's to the
fact that a lighted candle in close proximity to window curtains,
as it would be in a large percentage of cases, would inevitably
lead to hundreds, perhaps thousands of fires, with the probabil
ity of many fatalities. The Red Cross officials acted immediate
ly by telegraphing all chapters throughout the country as fol
"Immediate aetion. National Board of Fire Underwriters feels Christmas
Eve ceremony involves fire risk and. in view of their judgment, desire to do
ail possible to guard against risk. Please instruct chapter heads and workers
and give wide publicity through press concerning fire hazard involved and Im
portance of not using a lighted candle. Be sur direction Is given for taking
down of all curtains, so that homes of less Intelligent classes will not be en
dangered, then Christmas Eve observance can be carried through by raising of
shades and letting light of room illuminate the service flag In the window,
or an electric flashliht, as ssuggested, could be used on service flag. National
board does not expect us to withhold any posters or advertising already plan
ned." They also prepared the following notice for display in mov
ing picture theatres:
"IMPORTANT NQTICEi-Do not put a lighted
candle behind the Red Cross "service flag" in your
window upon Christmas Eve ; to do so micrht cause fire. .
. - Your flag will be sufficiently displayed if you merely
raise the shade or draw the curtains and have the room.
, . illuminated.
So prompt and energetic was their action that the conse
quences of the dangerous suggestion were averted.
Fire prevention forces are spending much time and energy
in the effort to educate the public in common sense carefulness.
It fa therefore disconcerting when a magazine of great influence
gives currency to a suggestion which violates the most funda
mental dictates of common sense. The reality of the danger in
volved appears in the fact that figures just compiled by the Na
tional Board of Fire Underwriters show that there was approxi
mately $17,500,000 worth of damage done by fires caused by
open lights in the years 1915 to 1919, inclusive, not to mention
the' loss of life incurred.
. HUNGER DOES NOT WAIT
TWENTY million men were either killed during the war or
so badly mutilated as to be no longer fit for work. Prob
ably 80 per cent of these men were from continental
Europe and they were mostly wage earners in one capacity or
itnother. Millions of them were men of families and their chil
dren were left fatherless. They were orphaned at a time when
' pupplies were short and vast suffering inevitable.
-The children of Europe are the real war victims. For them
the war is not ended. They still suffer and their plight carries
an appeal that cannot be denied. The fund being raised under
the direction of Herbert Hoover should be subscribed.
