. with "the prayer around the
world the new ' year will be ushered
In. In a thousand tongues it will be
spoken at watch night services in
near and distant places', in tho great
cities of the western world no less
than in distant villages on eastern
hills. It will be heard by tho kneeling
woman in u New York pew, by the
bare foot Igorot headhunter, by Chi
nese converts with bowed heads, by
Hindu women listening reverently
with their arms folded crosswise on
their breasts, by Persian, Japanese,
Syrian, Rush, indeed by all the peo
ples of the world.
From New York, its starting point
the prayer has been sent around the
world by the interchurch world move
ment of North' America, a movement
to bring about protestant cooperation
Py telegraph it has been sent to the
great denominations of this country;
by cable it has gone to England and
the oast. Thus it has been dispatched
to every mission center everywhere,
and from every mission centerit has
gone on again in the language of the
country to every protestant mission
station near and far.
This prayer is the first ever to be
sent around the world, the first ever
to be translated into a thousand lon
guages and' spoken simultaneously in
countless places. With one voice, tho
In many .tongues, it calls for "the ele
vation of Justice and of brotherhood"
and appea's for the hastening of that
"kingdom where Justice, mercy and
love shall rule the hearts and hands
To Mexico City and Montevideo, the
prayer was cabled for South and Cen
tral America; to Shanghai also, and
from there 't was relayed to Japan,
the Philippines, Malaysia and Ocean
ia, to Lahore, India, for distribution
throughout India and the surrounding
countries; to Recht, Persia; and to
Beirut, Syria, for the Levant. To Cai
ro for the northern stretches of Af
rica ; to Uolbbo for the larkest places
of the Congo; to Durban for South
Africa for the Zulu and Boer, To Up-
pasala, Sweden, and Zurich, Switzer
land, for all the countries of Europe.
From each of these mission centers
it was sent out to the out stations
everywhere, and the missionaries will
receive it in the language of the peo
ple of their districts, and in every
protestant mission station, great or
small, it will be spoken at special
night watch services on New Year
ove. ' '
And when merrymakers are throng I
lug through the Boulevard des Ital
ians, Purls, or streaming along the
strand, or pressing along the lighted
sidewalks of Broadway, or trudging
through the Bund in Shanghai, wait
ing for the rlnglng'of the New Year
In churches and in chapels, some of
them made of marble and some of
them made of mud, Christian people
of the white race, and tho yell'nv race,
and the black race, will be hearing
tho prayer that went around the
world, The prayer for guidance to re
plenish a devastated earth and stay
tlje unrest of perplexnd peoples.
Following the announcement that
the Cherrlans and Commercial club
members intended to provide a "Mer
ry Christmas" for needy children,
many of the Cherrlans received let
ters Indicating the desire of small tots
who believe- in San Claus. These
earlier requests were taken care of by
members at the Cherrian Christmas
tree Wednesday night.
Of all the letters received, howev
er, only one was addressed directly
to old Saint Nicholas himself and this
one, evidently written by a wee miss
of about 9 years, is now in the pos
session of J. F. Hutchason, Cherrian,
and who will see that the small writ
er's Christmas longings are satisfied,
the letter was delayed in the mails
until late Christmas eve.
The letter is addressed to "Mr. San
ta Ciaus, Salem, Oregon," and is as
follows, name and address withheld:
"Dear Old Santa Claus:
"Will you please send my brother
a pair of skates for Christmas. Please,
I don't want any skates for Christ
