Whhthei: baiioatli lbs stars of Gal
ilee, the Southern Cross, ' or in the
shadow of the Northern pine, the
birth of Christ is annually commemo
rated by a large proportion of earth's
dwellers. To-day the story of his
advent is told in countless churches,
the lesson of humility is taught
therefrom, and the principles of
"peace on earth, gooO will to man"
inculcated in various ways.
Christmas is a season ot joy, of
gladsome feeling, of good cheer and
pleasant reunion. Xo one is insensi

It does not seem long since we were
celebrating the last Christmas. "We
were thinking about it then just as
we are thinking about the prcsont;
making our few or many preparations
therefor. It passed; went into the

It will be so with the present; it came,

is one way that this season does good.
It is not impossible that in our fami
lies there may not be as much of the
gentleness of Christ as Uicir might
be: there are n jK-rfeci iiomes, any

Tun Manitobans still talk seces
sion, and demand that ilK'ir wrongs
be redresood. Tn a speech at Winni
peg last'Thursday, Col. Atwood urged
the importance of going to the fool
of the throne, where justice alone
could be obtained, and pointed out
that the interests of the ieople of
tho oastoni provinces were totally op
posed to theirs. "We could not ex
pect justice from them. It was no
use to goMo Ottawa, where tho gov
ernment was controlled by the Can
ada Pacific railway. The British na
tion is a nation of shopkeepers, who
are ready to extend their trade in all
directions, and if we open onr ports
to them they -will come and deal."
He prophesied that the lime would
come when all would believe as he
did -that the occasion had arrived
for a now confederacy, and the time
had come when they can form a new
confederation extending from Lake
Superior to the Pacific ocean.
Mr. Arthur and his friends met
with a severe defeat in the failure of
their effort to have the next national
convention of their party held in the
east. It diminishes his chances for
nomination if he really desires one.
He ,and they should not despair,
however, because they have been
b eaton by the western hotel men
and the western railroads. These
people do not inake a candidate.
There is ample time between this and
the leafy month of Juno to pick up a
majority of the delegates -whoso
Yes" or No" will decide the fate of
so many statesmen.' The thing for
Mr. Arthur to do now is to send the
"old machine" to the repair shops.
When- Hon. "Win. D. Kelley was a
young man ' he 'and Representative
Randall's father were one day talldng
together with an 'eminent doctor in
Paris. Health was the topic of con
versation, and "young' man?' said the
doctor to Mr, Kelley, "if you will
mako it a rule, never to get exhausted
so long a"aparfr of the day remains
inVhichyou have anything to do,
you will' live to be as old as I am."
"I followed the advice," said Judge
Kelley to a Cleveland Leader corres
