Once more it is December 25th, and wo Americans can wish each other a Merry Christ
mas with all the cheery significance of tho greoting. Increasing prosperity and tho prom
ise of more to come givo us excellent reason to bo happy Then, too, wo are very for-
tunato by contrast with the misery that oppresses a quarter of tho globe, from which much of our Christmas spirit comes.
The tradition-lovintr nations that cave us tho Christmas tree and tho most novel Christmas toys, the legend of St. Nicholas,
tho Christmas carol, tho plum pudding and tho yule log, the most famous of Christmas stories, and even that land where tho three
kings were guided by a star on tho first Christmas eve, are directly involved in deadly war or else threatened by its shadow.
That next Christmas may see them in harmony oncenoro and that the season may bring genuine peace on earth and good will
toward men is one of our most fervent Chris lir.r.3 wishes.
