Splendid Xmas Program Given
The Christmas tree at the Church
was nttended by a small crowd on
Xmas eve "because of the bitter cold
weather. The program was especially
good this year, the pantomine direct
id by Mrs. J. 0. Russell was worthy
of especial mention. It portrayed the
mother Mary bending over the cradle
( f the Infant Jesus. The Angels, who
sang, the shepards in their skin cos
tumes, with their crooks and the Three
Wise Men who came bringing their
gifts and bowed in worship, vere all
most realistic. Mr. Russell sang two
selections during the pantonine, ac
companied at the piano by Mrs. Russ
ell. There were several Christmas
songs by the audience, the dialogues
and recitations by the smaller f ilks
were all well rendered and most en
tertaining. Mrs. Horry Warren spoke

THE NEW YEAR
As In France, so in Scotland, New
Years is the chief festival of the!
year. The eve of the day and the da.
Itself are called "Daft Days," or crnz.v
days. And the eve separated fron
its "daft" associate is called "Hog
mapay." But whut this means, nt
one seems to know. The nppllcatlor
of the term is in a custom of childrei
to enrobe themselves in a sheet am'
go the rounds of houses on New Year'.'
eve, knocking at the doors and crying
"Hogmanay." In response they al
ways get an oat cake.
