The following was written for publi cation in last week's News Record but arrived too late. And w hile Christinas may bo past before some readers see thia it is wortri reading and worth preserving, so it is given ijjw. Ed. News Rhcokd. Readers of the News Record- 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 Him. Thus opens tho history of tho CI ris! tian era, and in commemoration of this eventful period wo, too, meet t wor ship, l ot with tho falsehood of 'Herod when ho instructed his wiso men to search di'igeutly but with the conscious ness of an. abiding faith that He is indeed saying "This is mv .beloved son in whom I am well pleased, hear ye Him. ' You know the story of unbelief, perse cutions and crucifixtion. i'ou knoV the example He placed before all man k ml a meek nnd lowly life a life 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 in vain to break the faith in Christ by 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 dence of thought, and be worr by the sophistries of the atheist. It ia this weakness of man that has wrought hi ruin. Force he can combat, but artifice and bribery may break his -determination and the good reaolves aro forever goue.

ENTERPRISE name for it brings to the Christians the 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. mo. - 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- ' rwrtwt liv TTim ut,A l n ' . -in ivujcuiuui ii woo are pure in heart. A hnppv Christmas to all t mv mUti CH. Allim. Flora, Dec. 14. .
