The Message of Bethlehem.
I'eare to a nation Is presented In
two Important aspects political and
Industrial. Americans may rejoice
In the blessings of both. Politically,
our nation Is at peace with all others
and not only so, but It has tsken the
lead In the vanguard of nations for
universal peace; to establish Inter
national arbitration, looking ul
timately to the abolition of war. It
is true we are taking no fanatical
view of the prospect, no such view
as would lead us to commit ourselves
to the precipitate doctrine at this day
of universal disarmament. But the
United States has substantially
tremendously pushed back the prob
ability of war in the future In Its
promulgation of the peace treaties
between it and Great Britain and
France. Other nations cannot afford
not to join with us soon in a similar
compnet and so the Infection of this
benignant influence will spread.
Industrially, we are at peace and
we have reason there also to rejoice.
Extremists may turn to recent
violences and sneer, but he who can
not see in the deadly depredations of
the McNamaras, with their startling
culmination to magnify the picture,
the clearing of a way to a better
understanding between honest labor
and honest capital, has a vision that
betrays him. That was the crucible
that burned away clinkers from the
true steel, a crisis similar to which
every great movement must pass
through. Out of the fumes of the
upheaval harm will come to the cause
of Industrial peace only as radical or
vicious men persist In misapplying
Substantially, then, this nation is
at peace with Itself and with the
world. It is further advanced in
peace at this Christmas time than t
ever was and how can thoughtful
men eat-ape the force of that fact?
We seem to have caught the ring and
the rapture of the message of Bethle
hem that broke from the tengels'
songs upon the shepherds' ear over
the Judean bills "Glory to GoJ In
the highest, and on earth peace, good
will toward men." The glory 1s tl
triumph, and we are triumphing to
day in flinging far the notes of the
song until they resound against the
shores of other lands as ono common
world refrain. The message of
Bethlehem hoe Its rich, deep meaning
to all mankind, whether they may
agree with the Christian nations that
the Christ came or not. The spirit of
Bethlehem is the spirit of civilization
and progress and Christmas time is a
good time to breathe anew the in
spiration of that spirit
Nebraska, a Tanning- State.
In Nebraska the back-to-the-farm
movement means something. It
means that in the decade from 1900
to 1910 three-fifths of the stale's
gain in population was in yie rural
districts. Such a showing is most
gratifying to a people whose re
sources are so largely agricultural as
are ours. It shows that we are point
ing our development in the proper
direction. Which is not to say that
we do not seek urban growth, but
urban growth generally may be de
pended on to take care of itself with
less artificial stimulus than the coun
try requires. And yet in these ten
years, It . must be admitted, Ne
braska's rural gains have not been
die to any artificial stimulus. In
fact, there has beon entirely too Utile
of this and the slate should. set to
wcrk in dead earnest to exert a
if i eater effort to develop Its country
t'lstrlcts In the ensuing decade. Our
yreutness as a state probably always
will depend, chiefly, upon our farms,
so that It behooves us to do every
thing possible to advance, them.
Many states to the west of us with
less natural attraction to the actual
farmer and home owner, the man
looking for a chance to get on, are
outstripping us in exploiting their
resources. When it comes to soil,
seasons,, climate, railroad facilities
and every other facility that a
progressive day demands, Nebraska
stands out In front with its hands
Justice for Workers.
In his message to congress dealing
with various topics President Taft
discusses the work of the commission
appointed by the last congress to In
vestigate and retort on the question
of employers' liability and work
men's compensation. On this the
president says: '
Thl cuitnulHHion lm been at work
huldlnif hearlnic, gathering data and
considering the subject, and It Is ex
pected mill be able to report by the
flrtit of the yeur, In accordance with the

ject to the regulating power of congresa
President Tart has consistently
urged action by congress to make
provision as far as possible to guard
against the economic loss that ac
crues through Industrial accidents.
It 1 impossible for congress to make
a lew that will adequately deal with
the condition, because it Is constitu
tionally restricted to action affecting
interstate matters alone. But the
passage by congress of a comprehen
sive, carefully framed and workable
law to govern this national weakness
would go very far In assisting tbe
efforts now being made in the states
to secure needed legislation. It
might even be accepted as the foun
dation for uniform legislation by the
states on the point. The greatest
obstacle In achieving the generally
desired reform has been Inability to
secure uniformity of action. Con
gress might easily set an example and
thus promote the cause of justice to
This Christmas day marks the 91st
anniversary of Miss Clara Barton,
who is living at her home In Glen
Echo, Md., where her friends and
relatives declare she Is enjoying ex
cellent health, despite reports some
time ago of her rapid decline. She
Is est 1 1 1 able, reports say, to do her
own writing and correspondence. .
In many, respects Miss Barton is
the most distinguished of contem
porary American women. She has,
In the truest sense, been a philan
thropist and hers has been the kind
of philanthropy that showed Itself in
visible results, not resting solely
upon intangible theories. Her life
and her means have been unstlnt-
ingly given to the relief of human
pain and the cheer of human hope,
and generations to come in this and
other lands will be helped by her In
fluence. Tbe Red Cross society,
which she founded, reaches around
the world and has access to every
kingdom and court, whether other
organizations or individuals do or
not. For the Red Cross comes with
but a single) mission, that to lift up
the fallen and bind tbe wounds of the
Miss Barton's first work as a nurse
on the field of battle was in our own
civil war, at the close of which at her
own expense, she conducted a sys
tematio search for missing soldiers.
Next she aided the grand duchess of
Baden to establish hospital In, the
Franco-German war, went with the
Gorman army and was decorated by
the German emperor with the Cross
of Baden and the Iron Cross of Ger
many. . She did personal service
among the Armenians In 1896, dur
ing tbe Spanish-American and the
Anglo-Boer war. '
But Miss Barton's Influence Is not
confined to military relief work. The
great world-wide .Institution with
which her name is linked stands for
the improvement of mankind in civil
as well as military life; stands for
intelligence and progress in the
treatment of the human body, for
sanitation, for tbe simplest scientific
treatment of tbe great tuberculosis
plague and already,' during her life
time,' tremendous advance1 has been
made along these lines. When It
comes to living for others, Miss Bar
ton is entitled to a crown, which few
of her contemporaries may claim.

Legend of Chriatma Wreath.
In sword and sash snd scarlet coat, v
t'pon a Christmas day.
Through frosty woods and hoary fields
A soldier rode away.
She watched him through the falling
A yonng and lovely maid, j
In milky pearls and flowing robes
Of velvet green arrayed.
With rumors of the distant wars
The months went slowly by,
Till once again the Christmas bells
Were pealing to theky;
And, walking in the lonely wood,
A bush the maiden found.
With thorns as sharp as little swords,
And scarlet berries crowned.
She leaned against an ancient oak
And wove a wreath to wear
Of scarlet bexTlea, bright and gay,
And set It on her hair.
And, lo! the Vrarls upon her breast
Were changed to berries, too;
And, rooted to the oak, a branch
Of mistletoe she grew.
When sweet and clear the Christmas bell
Ring Out o'er vale and hill,
The maiden-mistletoe is seen.
In pearls and velvet still;
And with her in the revela ruled
Bymtislc, mirth, and folly,
In sword and scarlet still arrayed,
Behold the soldier holly!
Bone of the Christmas Tree.
Once out of midnight aweet with mystery
The wonder of all wonder cam, to be.
So shall the dawn a marvel make of me;
For when In all my beauty I am born
In the first glimmer of the Christmas
Angels of lnnoceose in mortal guise
Shall look upon me with their faith-big
And, looking, see
A greater thing in me
Than the bare figure of a tree.
Behold! In every limb
I thrill with praise of Him
For whom I stand in memory.
Kings of the east and wise men three
Who brought to Him rare frankincense
So do my balsamed branches when they
In the warm airs that move about this
And render forth their homage tn per
fume. Lift up your hearts anew, O! careworn
Look up, with glad, believing eyes again;
And, looking, see
A greater thing In me
Than the bare figure of a tree. .
Behold! In every limb
I thrill In praise of Him
For whom I stand In memory.
The New-Kaahloned Girl.
Oh, winsome maiden fair.
Who make our Christmas gay;
I ask to be but where
You celebrate the day.
Though Borne brow 'neath the sway
Of Lord of High Misrule,
I only would obey
The merry maid of Yule
I only ask to share '
Your prattlo and your play;
You lend a radiant air,
December seems like May
In festival array. v"
Of misty, shimmering tulle
To you, brave court I'd pay, '
Oh, merry maid of Yule.
A Christmas Legend.
When borne upon the silent night
Long centuries ago.
There came the ring of bridle reins,
And voices hushed and low.
She hastened to her door to see
What prince or potentate.
Upon the road to Bethlehem
Was Journeying so lute.
"O! whither dost thou go with gifts,
In pomp so great?" she cried.
'We follow yonder biasing star,"
A bearded king replied.
"It leads us to the babe, new born.
And in a manger laid,
Who comes to save the wicked world,
Pray Join onr cavalcade.".
"Flrrt I muat sweep the eshes up,
And put the bread to rise,
Then I will follow, too, she said,
"The glory in the skies."
But when the pots and pans were scoured,
And hearth and table cleared.
Behold! the east was dark again.
The star had disappeared
When loud and sweet the Christmas bells,
Chime out from tower and town,
Still seeking for the infunt Christ, .
Hhe wanders up and down.
Her arms are full of cakes and toys.
Her weary feet are aore.
The snow Is on her old gray head,
She knocks at every door.
When fair and frosty falls the eve
Of His nativity.
She fills the children's stocking's up
And decks the Christmas tree.
No little one Is overlooked,
From vale to mountain high,
Lest one might be the Holy Child,
And she might pass Him by.

St. Iuls Republic: John Blgelow, aad
94. whoKe death Is announced, was a
democrat who came down to us from the
days of Martin Van Iluren. He was the
lifelong friend and the biographer of
Samuel J. Tllden.
Chicago Tribune: Whether as editor,
office holder, diplomat, or puhlictot, he
said or did things which counted. As a
man of letters his reputation was enough
for any lifetime, but he was more thsn
a biographer and editor. He was an
earnest, active cltiien of the republic, a
hearty hater of sham, an outspoken
advocate of good government and up
holder of education."
St Paul Dispatch: During almost a
century he has been the associate of the
foremost men at the country and has been
among those most active In promoting
whatever he believed was designed for the
uplifting of his countrymen and the ad
vancement of his country. His list most
notable effort was the part he took In
the dedicatory exercises held a few
months ago In the magnificent new public
library building in New York.
New York Tost: When Webster died It
was said that to think of America with

out Niagara. There was none of this
titanic force about Mr. BiKelow, but
there was a lofttnoss and even majesty

appearance seem like the fading from a
familiar landscape of a snow-crowned

Blgelow to behold a rkre panorama of
history and of Industrial development.
When he was born, the first American
puddling and rolling mill, the primitive
beginning of the Bteel trust, had Just
been built In Pennsylvania and the first
power looms set up in New England
mills. The railroad, the telegraph and
the Atlantic cable were yet to be, the
Mexican war still to be fought and the
slavery controversy threshed out. That
his life extended from the year of the
beginning of work on the Erie canal to
the time of the near completion of the
Panama canal Is perhaps the best con
crete measure of the progress It compre
hended. ' JndaTlaar a Nation.
