Neatly nineteen hundred vears ago
Herod tho king said : "Go and sea'ch
diligtutly for tho young child, and
when e have foutid Him, bring me
word again that I may come nnd wor
ship Him also."
When they had heard the king they
departed, .at,d lo, tho star which they
saw in vhe east, went before them and
stood where tho young child was
When they saw the star they rejoiced
with exceeding great joy. ; nd when
they were come into tho house, they
saw the young child with Mary, His
mother, and fell down and worshipped
Thus opens tho history of tho CI ris!

You know the story of unbelief, perse

without compensation, except from the
blessings of mankind. The unbelief of
today may not be of the same character
as that of the days of Pilate, but it
abides in this land of oum strong and
unconvinced. There may be no perse
cutions or crucifixions but the soph
istry of those who strive against Chris
tianity is taoro dangerous than the
order of a despot. The one may suk

forces while the ether with superficial
logic and word-printing, may do what
despots fail to do.
Tho average man cannot be drive.a.
The more you combat his opinions the
stronger they become but through the
blandishments of skillful rhetoric he
may lose his niarhood, bid indepen

assurance that the Son of God can e
into the world to save mankind. It is
the day of till days on which we should
lay down our burden of Borrow, put
aside the feeling of hatred and in tlw
spirit of good will to all, seek to emulate
the life of Him we worship. Glorious
day ! for it gave to mankind a day of
gladness and joy, a day of forgiveness
and hope, a day of assurance and re
ward. We meet and greet each' other
w ith the gladness of a full heart. We
rejoice and thank God that He gave His
only son that generations of men may
rise up and bless Him. How fewv
appreciate the grandeur of the occcasion
when neatly i in teen hundred years ago
the angels sang together over the ad
vent of the great joy : If the angels i f
heaven were overjoyed at the birth of
Christ, how much more should, we bless
the day of His birth. In these days of
scientific achievement we scarcely stop
to read the teachings of the new testa
ment. We enter into the joy of a
Christmas feast, not so mnch in com
memoration of the birth of Cbrfct as for
selfish gtatification. Little do we heed
the lessons of the Great Master when
He said, "For I was an hungered and
ye gave me meat; I was thirsty find ye
gave me tc drink; I was a stranger and
ye took ma in , naked and ye clothed
me ; I was sick and ye visited me; I was
in prison and ye came unto "ine."'
These are the lessons of true Christian
ity. We are asked to consider the'
destitrte'and the distressed, to contrib
ute to tho relief of those who are woithy
and need assistance. Verily I say nnto
you, inasmuch as you do it nnto one of
these little ones ye have done it unto.
It is tho lesson of true charitv. Seek
to alleviate the distress of the most
humble being on earth and ve have-
done it nnto me. He taught ns that
though there' may be a distinction be
tween fellow men gociallv. vet in sick
ness and distress we all stand npou the
same level, for inasmuch as ye hav&
done it unto ono of the least of these
my brethren, yo have done it onto me.
Now let us. the citizens of Wallows
county, arrange the Christmas exercises
ao they will give educational and moral
teaching. Let our eiftsbetothe poor
and ueedy instead of to those that need
it not. Let ns remember ths widow
and orphan and we shall be reruem- '
