whose mis sion had been revealed to them by Jahova that they gave gifts and rprit9 to the redeetnerof mankind Whf6 a wonderfa1eventl What trenndous influence it has had ou Yae many nations of earth and how precious should its celebration be jo that part of the world familiar with its great importance its wid scope and everlasting blessings Truly such a day should not be spent in revelry but in giving gifts to humanity and praise to Him whose birth and whose mission lI liberated and enlightened the generations who cherish the v name ofjhrist Remember how consistent it is to give gifts to all

a little girl and about year since a man was convicted of poisoning his wife and a few days since a young man in a fit of jeal ousy came near exterminating a whole family This does not em brace half
