A MERRY CHRISTMAS.
Ic came upon a midnight clear,
that glorious Shepherd Song,
proclaiming "Peace on Earth
ana Goodwill to Men, for unto us
is born this day in the City of
David, a Savior who is Christ the
;Lord," and adown the misty
aisles of nineteen centuries of
tim that same swelling anthem
has re-echoed with each recurring
Christmastide, filling with joy
and gladness the hearts of count
less millions and awakening in
every heart the desire to emulate
the Three Wise Men, who, upon
the day of the Nativity, brought
gifts to the Christ chili. "
So, at this happy season, there
is the same unselfish spirit of
giving, the same desire to bring
peace and good will, the same
glad outburst of melody and the
same feasting and merriment
that marked the birthmorn of the
Babe of Bethlehem.
Not lapse of time nor the fever
ish race for power, position and
wealth has ever' had the least ef
fect upon the pure spirit of iriv
ing or dimmed the memory of
that day so long held in hallowed
remembrance. In palace and
hovel, on land and sea, among
rich and poor, exalted and hum
Me, this is one day when all hu
manity meets on one common
level and gives for 1 the pure
pleasure of giving, and feasts
because no dther anniversary
bears with it so strong an incen
tive to good cheer. ' ' j
Of all the customs and observ
ances among the nations which
have grown out of and become
as holi-day, the mythical Kriss
Kringle of the ancient Dutch and
the joyous Yuletide celebration
of Merrie England hold foremost-
place, because the first symbolizes
the spirit of giving gifts and the
latter the realization of the bless
ing of meeting and feasting with
friends and loved ones.
Other days, even of national
import, may cease to be observed
and other lives sink into oblivion
as time wings its remorseless
'. flight and the wreck of empires
blots history from memory, but
- the celebration of Christmas day
will go on and on and the coming
of the Christ child will be remem
bered and sacredly kept so long
as humanity shall . exist and
Christianity endure and that will
be until the heavens shall roll to
gether as a scroll and the earth
melt with fervent heat, even un
til time is lost in eternity.
wniie an tne world now gives
out its gladsome greeting, so the
Gazette extends to all its read
ers, patrons and friends its best
wishes for a Merry Christmas.
AN IMPORTANT INDUSTRY.
The fruit industry of this state
is growing more rapidly than
the residents of this state imag
ine or can believe. It now ranks
as the fourth or fifth industry in
the state. The wheat lands are
gradually wearing out and the
yield of this crop is decreasing
annually. ' The salmon catch is
falling off annually and eventu
ally the timber of the state will
be cut down. Finally there will
be but two important industries
in this state fruitgrowing and
dairying. Thit being so, let us
make the best possible use of the
apple as an advertisement, that
more people may be brought to
this state to assist in the devel
opment of those two industries
which promise so much to the
material prosperity of this great
