Too often, the familiar phrase,
‘ ‘T h i Christmas Spirit", is too
closelv allied to visions of roast lurk-
ev, mince pie. plum pudding and
presents galore, but it 4 broadest
meaning should embody "Peace on
Earth. Good Will to M en".
We are prone to cast off the man­
tle of the C'hristntas spirit about
January 2nd, feeling that, like the
broken toy, it has fulfilled its mis­
There is no "closed season’ ’ for

advertising columns should he made
as interesting as any other part of
the paper, and the merchant’ s ‘ad’

retuui~: first, iu direct business
when it is handled with a little
common sense; second, in building

ot centralization and parcel post is
to mare itself a good place to live
in and a pleasant place for the coun-
trv people to come to. It it doesn’ t
do that it is doomed to disappear.
“ So no town should Ire so short­

couragement to the man, who is
trying to make a newspaper there.
He is in one sense the most import­
ant citizen. He can do more for
the town both at home and abroad
than any other one man. He should

business at business prices and in a
business way. It would he just as

run down, or your stores run down
or your churches run down, as to
let your newspaper run down” ’.
