HUKK WISK MKN, as everyone
l.nous, paid homagu to Jesus
at his birth. Their story Is told
in part thus hi the Gospel nc
cordlng to St. Matthew:
Now when Jesus was horn
In Uethlehcm of Judea In tho
duyu of Herod the King, behold,
there came wise men from tho
East to Jerusalem.
Saying, where Is he that Is
born King of the Jews? for wo have seen his star
In the Kast, and are come to worship him.
When Herod the King had heard these things, he
was troubled, and all Jerusalem with him.
And when he had gathered all the chief priests
nud scribes of the people together, he demanded
of 'tAoni where Christ should he horn.
And they said unto him, In Bethlehem of Judca,
for thus It Is written by the prophet.
And thou, Itcthlehem, In the land of Judca, are
not tho least among the princes of Judca ; for out
of thee shall come a Goernor, that shall rule my
Then Herod, when he had privily called tho
wluo men, Inquired of them diligently what time
the star appeared.
And he sent them to Bethlehem, and said, Go
and search diligently for the young child; and
when ye hnve found him, bring mo word again,
that I may come und worship him also.
When they had heard tho king, they departed,
and, lo, the star, which they saw lu the East, went
before them, till It came and stood over where
the young child was.
When they saw the star, they rejoiced with
exceeding great joy.
And when they were come Into the house, they
naw the young child with Mary his mother, and
fell down, and worshiped him: and when they had
opened their treasure, they presented unto him
gifts; gold, and frankincense nnd myrrh.
And being warned of God In n dream that they
Bhould not return to Herod, they departed Into
their own country another way.
These Three Wise Men were named Mclchtor,
Knspar and Halthazar. They aro sometimes called
tho "Three Kings of Cologne." Their hones nre
said to rest In the cathedral of Cologne. This Is
the finest specimen of Gothic architecture In Eur
ope and Its building took more than 000 yenrs
12l6 to 1SS0. Anyway, skulls purporting to bo
theirs were exhibited as Into as tho Eighteenth
century To touch them was to ho healed. An
old prayer charm reada:
Yo three holy klntrn,
Knspar, Mclchtor and Balthazar,
Pray for us now
And In tho hour of death.
Early trndltlon supplemented this nccount by
adding n fourth wise man. And tho story of this
fourth wise mnn Is one for us all to keep In mind
at Christmas time.
Tills fourth wise mnn started with (he other
three to mnkc the Journey to Jerusalem and pay
homngo to tho new-horn King. But ho never
reached the manger where lay the child. Instend
ho sacrificed his life to render service. Never
theless, before ho died he was granted n vision
of the Christ. Henry Van Dyko's "The Story of
tho Other Wise Man" tells the trndltlon most ex

He, therefore, seeks tho Christ nlone, traveling
from place to place, feeding the hungry as he goes,
clothing the naked, nursing the sick, comforting
Ono nfter nnother he spends for others tho
precious gifts which he hnd hoped to offer to the
Christ. At last ho surrenders his ono remaining
pearl In order to ransom n tormented slave girl.
Struck on the temple by n falling tile, he lies
bleeding and breathless. But he hears a Voice

tho Other WIso Man murmurs:
"Not so, my Lord! For when snw I Thee nn

one line count for
appearing on earth ot Christmas time with u mes
sage to nil mankind? Certainly he hns n mes
sage well worth delivering. And certulnly It is
a message well worth listening to. For from his
experience he could say to us :
"You have served God only as you have served
The Christian citizen should he serving God
in relation to his home, his community and his
nation. There nro those who are serving God by
trying to Improve the conditions under which their
less privileged fellows live and work, by trying to
bring more of justice, beauty, pence nnd love Into
tho life of the world. It Is to bo fenred that most
of us fall far short here. But he Is u poor Chris
tian nnd n poor citizen Indeed who, having, can
pass Christmas without doing something in keep
ing with tho day for those who have not.
Everywhere In our modern Twentieth century
life wo meet tho very people whom Jesus painted
in lllng words 2,000 yenrs ago the prodigal son,
who "came to himself'; tho elder brother, who
"was angry nnd would not go In"; the rrlest and
tho Lovlte, who "pissed )y on tho other side"; the
good Snmnritan, who "was moved with compas
sion" ; tho Pharisee, who thanked God thnt he was
"not as other men nre"; tho publican, who cried
"God ho merciful unto me, n sinner I"
At Christians time, If nt no other, it Is well for
us to bo the publican and tho good Samaritan.
Without Christmas tree, holly nnd mistletoe
Christmas would seem strnngo Indeed to most
Americans. The balsam fir Is most used for
Christmas trees, but doubtless nlniost any kind
of evergreen can bo used in nn emergency. And
some of tho munlclpnl and community center
Christmas trees nowadays aro of great size, espe
cially when they nro set up outdoors.
The photograph of the Christmas tree repro
duced herewith is worth studying as something
qulto out of tho ordinary in several respects. In
the first place, In tho original photograph throe
sepnrate exposures of tho plato were made the
flrst for the building nnd Its lights; the second for
the Christmas treo and Its lights, nnd tho third
for tho moon. Each exposure varied lu length to
suit the different degrees of brllllnnce.
And where do you suppose this unusunl photo
graph was taken? Why, at the annual Christians
celebration In Yosemlte valley, Yosemlte National
park, California. Most people think thnt all the
national parks are closed In the winter time. Well,
they nro not. Rocky Mountain National pnrk In
Colorado has n carnival of winter sports In Febru
ary. Mount Itnlnlcr National park In Washington
has winter sports nnd n ski tournnment 11s Into as
July. And Yosemlte Is open the year 'round. And
Yosemlto's Christmas celebration Includes n fat,
Jolly, fur-clad Santa Clans who drives up In the
old-fnshlqncd way In his sleigh and distributes his
gifts to tho village children.
But that Isn't all about this unusual picture.
What kind of a tree do you suppose tho Christmas
treo Is? You could not guess If your Christmas
gift depended upon your guess. That's because It
is tho only one of Its kind In tho whole world.
This Chrlstmns treo Is nothing less than 0 living
Sequoia tree. Tho Sequoia (Sequoia glgantea) is
the oldest and biggest living thing In the world.
Some of the biggest and oldest of them nre .15 fee
In dlnmeter nnd at least G.&00 years old. So yot
seo many of these Big Trees In Sequoia and Yosem
Ito national parks were not even middle-aged whet
Christ was born In Bethlehem.
This particular Sequoia Christmas tree win
planted In 1S00. From a seedling It has grnwi
to a height of moro than GO feet. A thousand
yenrs from now It will probably be nearly UOO feel
tall and have a diameter of in or 20 feet.
One wonders If there will be a similar Chrlstmni
celebration In Yosemlte valley then n thousand
years from now. Why not? Christinas will still
bo celebrated then if tho world endures. And
our nineteen national parks have been set nparl
by congress ns public playgrounds for tho people
forever. So, If tho United States of America en
dures, why not a Christians celebration In Yosem
lte A. D. 2922? All that seems to be necessarj
Is the planting of a Sequoia seedling every thirty
years or so.
Christmas and mince pie! Nobody ought to
have to tell anybody that Christmas Is the time for
mlnce pie. Why, tho two go together Just like
Thanksgiving nnd pumpkin plo and tho Fourth ol
July nnd spring lnmb nnd green pens. The llrst
mlnco plo of the winter shouli'. grace the Christmas
bonrd; any housewife who gives her family even
u tu&to of ono heforo Christinas day should go with
out a now Easter hat that's tho punishment to
fit tho crime. And any man who eats inlnce pie
at n restaurant or nt his club before Christmas day
bhould go without mlnco plo all winter.
However, If ho should, his punishment would
likely fit tho crime. For nowadays the making of
mlnco pies is largely n lost nrt. Tho ordinary
restuurant mlnce pie Is nothing but minced fruit.
There Is a saying that every really good woman
cook must have n temper. Maybe. Certainly she
Should he nlco and plump as If sho ate her own
mluce pies nnd thrived on them. And it's easy
to tell by watching u woman make mlnce pies
whether or not they're going 'to be a success. If
sho goes nt It, you know, as If it wero sort of a
religious rite as If the fate of the nation hung
on her work why, nil Is well.

ry? Well, It's quite evident the good doctor never
sat down to Just the right kind of n Christmas
