ChrlMiiins with Its ppare on eiirth. Rood will
to men. rninlng amid tbe mogt terrible of wars,
deepens the contrast between Its own spirit and
conditions of the day and finds many men pro
claiming the breakdown of civilization Yet If we
witness more want and woe we see also more
philanthropy to relieve it and more service for
the spirit of Christmas than ever.
This Is not the only time Christmas has
caught the old world off Its guard. According to
secular and sacred history, the first Christmas
damned amid conditions unspeakably worse than
any existing today. Civilisation seated at Rome,
never more vaunting In Its achievements, was
corrupt to the core, rerklnr; in tbe vilest forms of
vice and crime.
Civilization may have halted, certainly has
cgreglously blundered, but has not broken down.
What student of history with faith in the future
denies that civilization will emerge from this Eu
ropean eclipse wiser If not ntrongc-r for Its chas
tening experience? We look back a half century
In the life of our own republic to a day when
clouds of doubt overshadowed the promise of
America. Then It was more than nation against
nation It wan state aRalnst state, brother
against brother, father against son. But the prin
ciple at stake was fought out, the war ended, the
union was saved and the nation came forth from
the crucible mightier and more compact.
Civilization has survived and will survive the
severest tests. World-wide sro the effects of
this war and universal the demand for mercy.
But mercy has caught the call and flunp back
the response. Never have men and notions more
eagerly and extensively taken up the work of
humanity. The world moves toward the Ideals
of Sinai and the sermon on the mount, despite
all setbacks and obstacles.
It recognizes the fundamental principles of
peace and brotherly love. Neutral nations de
plore and condemn the war, belligerents apolo
gize for It. The message of Christmas lives and
strives to overcome the baser influence. "I am
my brother's keeper," shout millions, who are
at this moment offering up their most cherished
sacrifices to the dictum that "pure religion and
nndefiled before Cod and the Father Is this, to
visit the fatherless and widows In therl afflic
tion." With the Christmas reminder, men may not
shut their eyes to all this altruism, even though
dazed by the awful spectacle of war.
Patronage Fight Just Getting Good.
To a man up a tree, the democratic patron
age deadlock in Nebraska looks as If It were
Just beginning to get good.
Nebraska democrats are fortunate, or un
fortunate, In having two distinguished and over
weenlngly ambitious leaders occupying high pub
lic office, and heading bitterly opposed fac
tional foliowlngs; As a consequence we have
senatorial courtey drawn up In battle array
against cabinet comity.
Through the president, the secretary can ap
point, but cannot confirm, while the senator
can reject, but cannot enforce his recommenda
tions. For positions usually conferred as special
rewards for party service, the senator has taken
particular pains' to urge only men known to be
personally distasteful to the secretary in fact,
It would take a microscopic search to find any
democrats In Nebraska mors odiously objection
able, or whose proferment would bo more hu
miliating, to the secretary. Instead of being In
vitations to compromise, the senatorial recom
mendations for the most part look more like
studied Insults to the secretary of state, and
there are no signs yet of surrender on either
side. , . (
If it is to be a fight to the finish, we speak
for front seats In the spectators' gallery.
' One Mark of Civilized Warfare.
Without n formal armistice, the opposing
hosts of Europe have planned, each to itself, to
obxerve Christmas day by resting arms, and re
fraining from battle, thus giving one mark at
least of civilized wurfare as contracted with the
conflicts of (savagery. By no means do all the
combatants called .Into the field profess a re
ligion which mokes Christmas their recognized
holiday, hut despite the divergent religious
creeds, they all seem to accord a generous tol
erence to the faith of their comrades. In what
other war, which history records, can be found
a similar voluntary truce respecting a religious
festival and its celebration? While so-called
civilised warfare may be as relentless as un
civilized warfare iu the destruction of life and
property, we have here one limit which It sets
for ltsulf to heed without overstepping.
Industrial Peace.
We want peace In American Industry, but we di
not want peace at any price. We want peace to rest
on thane primal rights that are the baMc reason fur
government. A settlement on any other than the
happiness and rights of the man I will always pro
test. Prank P. Walch, chairman of the fetferal com
mission on Industrial relations.
And every sober-thinking; man with fixed
opinions on the subject will agree with Mr.
Walsh. Industry and government are so co
related in human affairs that they must rest
upon the same principles of justice or they will
not rest at all. A basic principle of free gov
ernment implies a sense of mutual interest and
Inseparable welfare. This same rule must gov
ern relations In Industry where success and pros
perity rests entirely on the point of mutual In
terest. Two of the most notable obstacles to indus
trial peace today, aside from the abstract lack
of mutual confidences, are the absentee control of
big Interests on the one hand and the self-seeking
walking delegate, or paid agitator, on the other.
Fortunately the menace of both have been
brought forcibly to the attention of this com
mission and will be specifically dealt with In Its
report to congress.
Surely enough economic power and resources
have been wasted In this country on fool devices
that keep labor and capital constantly estranged
and make distrustful enemies Instead of mutual
friends of employer and employe, to be ready for
a sane rearrangement of tbe whole industrial
system. But let no one be so simple aa to sup
pose that the mtlleunlum Is to come in a day, or
a year, even after this commission completes Its
Investigation and ktibmits its findings to con
gress, but all the indications point to steady
progress in the right direction.
Old-Time Christmas Dinner
The Christmas Muse
A l east Won b W hile.
The following account, somewhat abridged, of th
banquet served by the squire In the old aneentrnl hall
Is taken from Washington Irving' "flketch Book:"
The dinner was served up In the great hall, where
' the pi til re. always held Ms Christmas banquet. A
1 hnrlnr, crackling fire of logs had been heaped on M
j warm the spacious apartment and the flame went
sparkling and wreathing tip the wide-mouthed chim
ney. The greet picture of the crusader and hie white
j horse had been profusely decorated with greens for
1 the occasion and holly and ivy had likewise been
wreathed round the helmet and weapons on the oppo
site wall, which I understood were the arms of the
same warrior. I must own, by the way, I had strong
doubts about the authenticity of the painting snj
armor as having belonged to the crusader, they cer
tainty having the stamp of more recent days: but I
wss told that the painting bad been so considered
time out of mind; and that as to the armor It had
been found In a lumber room and elevated to Its
present situation by the squire, who at once deter
mined It to be the armor of the family hero; and ns
he was absolute authority on all such subjects In his
own household the matter had passed Into current
(iergeeat Display of Plate.
A sideboard was set out Just under the chlvalrlc
trophy, on which was a display of plate that might
have vied st lesst In variety) with Belshaszar's
parade of the vessels of the temple; "flagons, cans,
cups, beskers, goblets., basins and ewers," the gorgeous
utensils nf good companionship that had gradually
accumulated through many generations of Jovlil
housekeepers, liefore these stood two Yule cand'es,
heninlng like two stars of the first magnitude; other
lights were distributed In branches like a firmament
of silver.
We were ushe red Into this banqueting scene with
the sound of minstrelsy, the Old harper being seated
on a stool beside the fireplace and twanging kls In
strument with a vast deal more power than melody.
Never did Christmas hoard display a more goodly
and gracious assemblage of countenance; those who
were not handnome were at least happy, and happi
ness Is a rare Improver of your hard favored visage.
I always consider an old English family as well
worth studying as a collection of Holbein's portraits
or Albert Durcr's prints. There Is much antiquarian
lore to bo acquired, much knowledge of the physi
ognomies of former times. Perhaps It may be from
having continually before their eyes those rows of
old family portraits, with which the mansions of this
country are stocked; certain It Is that the quaint fea
tures of antiquity are often most faithfully perpetu
ated In these lines, and I hsv traced an old family
nose through a whole picture gallery, legitimately
handed down from generation to generation, almost
from the time of the conquest. Something of the kind
was to bo observed In the worthy company around me.
The table wss literally loaded with good cheer,
and presented an epitome of country abundance tn
this season of overflowing larders. A distinguished
post was allotted to "ancient sirloin," as mine host
termed It, being, as he added, "the standard of old
English hospitality and a joint of goodly presence and
full of expectations." There were several dishes
quaintly decorated, and which had evidently some
thing traditional In their embellishments, but about
whch, as I did not like to appear over curious, I asked
no questions.
The Wassail IIaotI.
When the cloth was removed the butler brought
In a huge allver vessel of rare and curious workman
ship, which he plnced before the squire. Its appear
mice was hsiled with acclamation, being the wassail
bowl, so renowed In Christmas festivity. The content 3
had been prepared by the squire himself: for It was a
beverage In the skillful mixture of which he pc-'""-larly
prided himself, alleging that It was too abstruse
and complex for the comprehension of an ordinary
servant. It was a potation, Indeed, that might well
make the heart of a toper leap within him, being com
posed of the richest and raciest wines, highly spiced
and sweetened, with roasted apples bobbing about the
The old gentleman's countenance beamed with a
serene look of Indwelling delight as he stirred this
mighty howl. Having raised It to his lips, with a
hearty wish of a "Merry Christmas to all present, he
sent It brimming round the board, for every one to
follow his example, according to the primitive stylo,
pronouncing It "the ancient fountain of good feel'nn,
whero all hearts met together." 1 1

More Impressive than any Christmas message sent

Above all other nationalities the American whose

hearing and heeding the Christmas message this year.

In deadly strife, countless homes are destroyed, their

A Boy at Christmas.
Edgar A. Guest. In Judge.
If I could have my wish tonight. It would
not be for wenlth or fame,
It would not be for some delight that men
who live In luxury cUim;
But it would be that I might rise at 3
or t a. m.. to see,
With eager, happy, boyish eyes, my pres
ents on the Christmas tree.
Throughout this world there U no Joy, I
know now I am growing gray,
So rich as being lust a boy, a little boy
Christmas day.
I'd like once morn to stand and gaxe en
raptured on a tinseled tree.
With eyes that know just how to blaze,
a heart still tuned to ecstacy;
I'd like to feel the old delight, the surg
ing thrills within me come;
To love a thin with all my might, to
grasp the pleasure of a drum;
To know the meaning of a toy a mean
ing lost to minds blase;
To be Just once again a boy, a little boy
on Christmas day.
I'd like to see a pair of skates the way
they looked to me back then.
Before I'd turned from boyhood's gates
and marched Into the world of men;
I'd like to see a jackknlfe, too. with those
same eager, dancing eyes
That couldn't fault or blemish view; Td
llko to feel the same surprise.
The pleasure, free from all alloy, that
has forever passed away.
When I was Just a little boy and had my
faith in Christmas day.
Oh. little, laughing, roguish Isd! the king
that rules across the sea
Would give his scepter If he had such joy
as now belongs to thee!
And beards of irrny would give their gold
and all the honors they possess
Once more within their grasp to hold thy
present fee of happiness.
Earth sends no greater, surer Joy, as, too
soon, thou, as I. shall say,
Than that of his who is a boy, a little boy
on Christmas day.
A Question ( Faith.
Ted Rohlnon In Cleveland Tlalri Dealer.
"lo you believe In Santa Onus?" Why,
yes of course I do;
Your question Isn't sensible and. fur
ther, isn't new,
My answer Isn't, either. Hut unless
you're more than dense ,
You know that bromides may contain a
lot of common sense.
As long as children long for him, as long
as artists draw him,
I do believe In Santa Claus, although I
never saw him.
I never aaw thla cruel wind that shivers
me and shakes me
I never saw a Tariff Law but see how
poor it make met
I never saw a purple cow-but I've a
friend that haa;
(Ho saw that and a snake, which put him
right on the Paszazs.)
I never nursed a young gasell I never
hope to nurse one
But this I know, that anyhow I'd rather
nurse than curse one.
I never saw the gentle Muse that dally
doth Inspire me;
I've never seen The Boss and yet he's
liable to fire me!
I've not aeen Prexle Wilson but that
Isn't any cause
That he ahould not believe lu me, nor I
In Santa Claus!
Pass It Oa.
If some trinket you've been given.
Pass It on:
Make some other's life worth llvln'
Pass It on;
To not keep It In the garret.
Take it from your trunk and air It
Maybe some poor soul would wear it.
Pas It on.
If a laundry list you're hoarding,
Pass it on;
To some kind soul where you're boarding.
Pass It on;
Brush from it the flecks of grime,
Mske It truly serve Its time,
It has cost some one a dime,
Pass It on.
Tho It's but a hair-receiver,
Pass It on:
She worked on It Ilk beaver.
Pasa It on;
Perhaps your hair' all been received.
Ami that fact your soul baa grieved.
Don't waste time In being peeved
Pass It on.
