NUMBER The World's Debt to the .Christmas fore The scope of our ision has Story. ed, and we see each other in a clear- The following' paper was written and read by Judge H. C. Baker, of this place, at the union Christmas services, held at the Presbyterian church, Sunday evening, the 25th of December, 1910: The subject which has been assigned to me this evening is so incomprehensive. and embraces so much in its relation to man's temporal and eternal interests, that 1 am at a loss to know where to begin, or in what language to speak. In millions of hearts to day all over the earth, there is that gladness of Christmas time, which comes on no other day in all the year, shared by prattling babes, by innocent and artless youth, by young manhood and maidenhood, as well as by those upon whom the frost of the winters of long years have gathered; and all alike, in some degree, par- take of its spirit. It is a day of remembering and being remembered, of giving and receiving; f the exchange of the tokens of affection; of messages of love from absent nes, and if friendships are not a little closer, and love a little tenderer, and goodwill a little more pervading than at other times, the evidences of them are at least, more manifest. Nations have days for the celebration of events peculiar to themselves, but this day belongs to no country, and no age exclusively. It is a world day, and for each generation of the earth. It commemorates a world event, one which interested heaven as it did the earth; an event which has its relation to the time that is, and has been, and to the eternity beyond. The story of Christmas is the story of the babe of Bethlehem, of His birth, His after years of. teaching and ministering to human suffering, His cruel death UDon the cross, and His ascension into heaven. Nothing like it in interest and importance to our race has been or can be, until He comes again in power and glory to judge the world. It is a story so pathetic, so tragic, and so touching in its details, that even if it were no more than mere human history, it would ever excite the deepest interest, and appeal to the tenderest sympathies of mankind. But it is more than that, it is the story of the life of God incarnate, and of His plan for man's redemption from the curse of sin. It gives an answer to the question of Job, "If a man die shall he live again?" It tells, riot in the language of philosophers with if s and doubts, but clearly and positively, that the soul is immortal, and that man, after his brief existence here, continues to live. Christ is the revelation of immortality to man It is beyond all else, the story of love, of God's love to man, and of it's enthronement in the heart, love to God, and love to man. Love came down f ror heaven with the babe in the manger. He came to establish the kingdom f love, a kingdom of righteousness, and peace and joy. It was to be an everlasting kingdom, "Extending from sea to sea, and from the river to the ends of the earth." "His kingdom is an everlasting kingdom, and His dominion from generation . I ! to generation." This story awakens, and brings into exercise, the best that is in the nature f man. It has been the incentive to the highest and best efforts for the material progress of the world, for its enlightenment, its advance in the arts 2nd sciences, in invention, and in the social amelioration of the race. It has elevated woman from a position of slavish degradation to one of honor and freedom, and given sacred ness to childhood and maternity It teaches, as the world had not known, the brotherhood of man. The world has been slow to learn its meaning, as taught by the Master. I am not sure that we yet understand it as weshou'd The Jew in his exclusive-ness- , believing that he was the chosen one. and that all others were" outside the kingdom, would not accept it. God was the God of the Jews, and not of others. He, the proud Pharisee, was not like other men, especially he congratulated himself, that he was not like, bu wa3 mu:h better than the dc spised publican across the way. Christ taught, a different lesson. He taught that the publican was a brother, and that he should receive help and sympathy as such Permit me to ask, tstp we as free of the spirit of the Jew as we should be? Have we in this closing year of our Lord 1910, freed iurselves from this ex? clusiveness? Has the Christian world caught the message of peace and good will in all its import? '"Have we relieved ourselves altogether from the prejudice which we condemn in the Jew of the long ago? I fear we have not, although I realize that we read the' message with a clearer vision than we did even a few years ago. We are' standing upon higher s and broader than at any time in the greand y There ie more of union of past. and purpose, than ever.be- to-da- There was a time, and it has not been a great while, when the denominational wall was high between us. so high that it took two strong arms to lift us high enough to see and greet a brother on the other side. The wall is being torn away these later days, it is being lemoved in the foreign missionary fields, and with a little more grace, it will be removed at home. We will learn that what works badly in mission fields is not a good thing elsewhere. The spirit of the Christmas story, which is the Christ spirit, is in the air and in the hearts of christian men and women as it has not been in the past. They are minimizing differences, and looking for common ground to stand upon. They feel the need for co oper ation and harmony, and unity of action, as well as purpose. The church Federation movement is the outgrowth of this spirit, and it is one of the great forward movements of the age May it not mean that we are approaching the time when there shall be the realization of the prayer of the Savior, so full of tenderness and love. ' 'Neither pray I for these alone but for them also which shall believe on me through their word; that they may be one; as Thou, Father, art in me, and I in Thee, that they may also be one in us, that the world may believe that Thou hast sent me." Does it not seem from these closing words, that He, with prophetic eye, looking down the centuries, saw the division and jealousies of His disciples, and realized, that while they continued, the world would not believe His message? And if this be true is it not a terrible responsibility resting upon His followers, that they have thus been stumbling blocks to the world's conversion. The Christmas story is the story of the beginning of the kingdom of peace, for peace and love abide together. Love, peace, and joy, this was the message of the angel to the shepherds of the plains, this was the song of the heavenly host, and this was the mision of the Bethlehem babe. As the church is turning its thoughts in the spirit of unity, to the world's evangelization, and to the means for its accomplishment, so the minds of our greatest men are dealing with the problems of the world's peace. We are talking of disarmament, of international courts, and of ways to preserve peace among nations. Only a few days ago, one man gave over eleven million dollars to be used in this cause. It was a generous gift, and I doubt not the Prince of Peace was behind it, for God works by human instrumentalities in the accomplishment of his great purposes. When peace shall come in all of its fulness into the hearts of men, "The peace that passeth all understanding," then shall be fulfilled the prophesy, "They shall beat their swords into plowshares, and their spears into pruning hooks: nation shall not lift up sword against nation, neither shall they learn war any more." That we have not attained to this condition is due to the fact that the world has not been willing to accept the message of peace in the breadth and fullness of the offer. Is there something in this Christmas story for us as individuals? Are our hearts responsive to the promptings of its spirit? Have we learned the lesson that it teaches? That life well lived, is duty done: duty Js service; and the highest service we can render to God, and the most acceptable to Him, is service to our fellowman. New Firm. er light. THE PIANO CONTEST.

Fullerton in the American Magazine says: "There came into baseball in 1003 a ball which came near revolutionizing the game and brought a new era of pitching, made great pitchers out of and poor hitters out of once mighty sluggers. "The ball is pitched with two, sometimes with three, fingers hold on one side of the ball and with the thumb or tip of the thumb and nail being gripped hard against the seam at the opposite side of the sphere. The top of ilie ball is made slippery at the point of contact with the fingers, so that the sphere slides off the fingers with the minimum of friction, while the thumb, pressed hard against the seam, gives the maximum of friction, the result being that the ball, leaving the hand, takes heavy 'English' from the thumb and starts revolving rapidly in the direction opposite to that in which it naturally would rotate. Therefore it whirls rapidly for a short distance until the natural but suspended motion of the ball overcomes the false 'English' applied by the thumb and a contest between the natural and unnatural forces ensues. The ball ceases revolving unnaturally and floats and wabbles until the natural twist overcomes the false one, and then the ball darts just as It would have done If it had been curved naturally, shooting in the direction in which the heaviest friction was applied. A spitball if pitched directly overhand darts almost straight downward, and ft pitched side arm with the thumb toward the body it shoots outward and down as a fast outcurve does, the quickness and speed of the break depending entirely upon the amount of force with which it is thrown and In ratio to the amount of friction applied by the thumb or lack of friction by the fingers. Great strength and speed are essential to the best pitching of this kind of ball." 'has-been- s' ILITARY FORMS.

"Wild alligators build their nests on the bank of a river or in marshy places. They are made of mud. saw grass and leaves and mold. They are sort of natural incubators, for the eggs, which are to eighty in a laid from thirty-fiv- e nest at one time, are hatched out by the steam which comes up through the mud as much as by the sun. Around the nest a pile of grass is laid, sometimes as high as six feet, and from a distance resembles a stat-of hay. The mother gator has her den near by. She makes it by burrowing into a bank of soft mud, and sometimes it is seventy feet or more inland. The only way to get her out of a den like that is to take a long steel rod and thrust it down the tunnel, which is always slanting. When the gator feels the prodding she will come out to see what the trouble is. "It takes alligator eggs two months and six days to hatch. When the little ones come out the mother calls them together by a noise which is something between a .luck and a grunt, and they all scramble down from the nest to her den. If it Is on the edge of a river the den is filled with minnows. As the mother enters the den she swishes her tail around with terrific force, killing the smallest fish, and when they float the little alligators nab them up. "A mother alligator will sometimes have four or five dens, and she takes her brood from one to another, repeating the swishing process in each one uutil the young ones have had a full meal."

The ingenuity displayed by the ancient Egyptians to prevent robbers from breaking into the pharaohlc graves merits admiration from present day engineers, writes Dr. Holscher, chief architect in the Prussian government, in a work on the sarcophagus of Khafra, the builder of the second Gizeh pyramid, who reigned in Egypt some 5,000 years ago. The lid of the red granite sarcophagus was dovetailed with minute precision into the receptacle. To prevent the cover from being drawn back the Egyptian builders bored two hcles in the lid at the edge, not showing above. These corresponded exactly with two similar holes, less deep than the other two. sunk in the front of the receptacle. Two copper bolts were then placed in the lid holes, and at the moment the sarcaphagus was fully closed the holes met and the bolts dropped in position from the upper holes partly into the lower, thus making it impossible to move the lid. It must have struck the Egyptian engineers that grave robbers might get at the body by turning the sarcophagus upside down, in which cae the bolts would glide back into their original position and permit the lid being drawn out. To prevent this they filled the lower holes with wax and made the bolts hot. Upon the lids being placed In position the bolts melted their way into the wax and upon cooling became so firmly fixed that nothing short of complete destruction could open the royal tomb. It must have been a herculean labor to hew the whole edge away, but that is what grave desecrators did, and the wax can still be Keen in the bore holes. New York Sun. Why does a soldier when saluting a superior raise his hand to his head covering? The beginning dates back to the time of the Borgias, if not to an earlier date In those days assassina uou ut ,ugU.. ami in orucr ai an Inferior might not have a superior at advantage the inferior was corn- pelled when coming into his superiors presence to raise his right hand, palm to the front, to show that no dagger 'was concealed there. From this old custom our hand salute has come down. The salute with the sword was. not done that way in the beginning with- out any reason. When knights of the crusades received their orders it was the custom for them to call upon God to witness theirassumption of the . orders given. To do this the sword was raised to the front so that the , hilt reached the lips, when the cross formed by the hilt and blade could be kissed and an oath registered to carry out the orders faithfully. The drop- ping of the sword, point to the front, indicates submission. Why in the funeral cortege of a rnr.Mted ofheer or soldier is the horse, saddled and equipped, with the boots oi' the late rider placed heels to the front iu the stirrups, led to the place of burial? To show by reversal of the boots the owner's march has ended, We must go back to the days of the INunans for the reason why in the service three volleys are fired over the grave of a comrade. Amoug the Romans the burial consisted of the throwing of earth three times on the coltiu. Three times was the dead man called by name, which ended the cere- mony. and as the friends and relatives departed each said "Vale!" three , times. So as a farewell to our dead comrades we fire three volleys over the grave. Then the service called taps is souuded, this closiug the ceremony. Why should the call taps be souuded iu preference to any other? Because taps is the call for "lights out." and the lights of life are out in the comrade who has "joined the silent bivouac of the dead." This ending of a service funeral dates back to the early forties, but did not become, a fixed custom till late in the civil war. There was a reason for causing all before a military court to j witnesses remove the glove from the right hand before- taking the oath, ihe raising of the hands and eyes toward heaven when taking an oijth is of great an- tiquity. When the Bible was printed the bare hand was laid on the book, which was afterward kissed. But the Bible was not always at hand when needed. So the custom of raising the right hand and uncovering the head has grown into general practice. In olden days the criminal was branded iu the palm of the right hand, and for this reason the custom of requiring the removal of the glove came into vogue in order that the'hand might be j ' j , J . ; - i i Ballot box now open and prize on view at Russell & Co's. store.

Dainty Explains a Mishap. JIaydr Frank J. Rice in a Thanksgiving speech at a newsboys' dinner in New Haven praised mince pie. "Mince pie," he said, "Is the crowning glory of a Thanksgiving dinner. I am sure you will all agree with me when I declare that it is impossible for any one at any time ever to get too much mince pie. "Once upon a time a mother said to her little son during the Thanksgiving day repast: " 'Tommy, this is the last piece of mince pie you can have.' "Tommy frowned as black as a thundercloud. "'There was a little boy like you,' his mother continued sternly, 'and he ate mince pie, aiid he ate mince pie, and finally he burst. Yes, he burst from too much mince pie.' "'No,' said Tommy. 'There's no such thing as too much mince pie.' " 'Then.' said his mother, 'why did he burst?' " 'There wasn't enough boy,' Tommy answered." .The Usual Role. Charles M.

How much we need such a theory now in dress! The hat of this great artist, with its brim so wide that only with long handled brushes can he reach his canvas, is only an aggravated form of the absurd vanities now prevalent in Greater New York. Brooklyn Life. Vessels That Seemed to Be Moved by the Spirit of Destruction. There is an old Cornish legend of a phantom ship which is seen in or off Porthcurno harbor and which, unlike most ghosts, has a terrifying habit of pursuing any vessel which it sights. If it catches its victim there is a collision, but no rear of inrushing water. At the moment of contact the ghost ship vanishes into thin air. and the puzzled crew of the other vessel terrified amazement. ruD t,,eir eJes To any one who knows the legend the vessel that saw tlie jfmiioni ship is, however, doomed. iJefoie the next New Year's day she will be sunk Jn collision with another vessel or a rock. One wonders whether the original of this phantom ' at all resembled that notable and appropriately uamed yacht Satanita. The Satanita was a fine and very powerful cutter, which ori'xina.ly belonged to Mr. C. D. Clarke and afterward to Sir Maurice Fitzgerald. The Satanita was a hard weather craft, but let the breeze be the least Heavier tnan sue HKeu and sue wouiu ' be seized with what seemed more like demoniacal possession than anything else, and even with four men hang'ng ' on' her helm she would sometimes take charge and rush right up into the wind. She was the cause of several serious accidents, the worst of "which ' happened at the Mudhook club's regatta in 1S94. On that occasion she was behaving in the most perfect fashion when suddenly and without the slightt.-- i warning she flung all control, and, just as a race horse will sometimes "savage" an opponent, she dashed in a mad fury at Valkyrie II. and sank her like a stone. Well was the Satanita called the "demon" yacht. But it is not only sailing ships that act at times in a strange and unac-- ' countable fashion. Some years ago the British warships Pique, Mutine. Ho- Kiukiang ?a rio and Britomart entered uaruor auu uroppuu aucuur in biuie file. Presently a steamer which had been discharging her cargo unan- t i chored and began to steam out. f7ie was just abreast of the war-- I made ships when she suddenly straight for the Pique. The war-- t ship's officers and men saw the man at the steamer's wheel doing all he knew to keep her off, but she ilatly refused to answer her helm and went crashing into the Pique, smashing her boats and davits. After clearing her she went for the Mutine, but luckily did not strike her Kfull. However, she carried The Mu- tine's bowsprit clear away. Not yet satisfied, she made a rush at the but by superhuman efforts on both ships the mad steamer was prevented from doing more than graze the third warship. Something of the same kind was seen in the Thames a few years ago when the British steamship Poplar, turning to enter her dock, was struck and cut down to the water line by the French vessel Cordilleras. She at once began to fill, and the captain ordered full speed ahead for the purpose of beaching her. Instead of making for the beach the Poplar made a sudden rush in a great circle out iuto the river, smashing into everything she came across. Then, as if filled with a spirit of revenge, she made for the vessel which had so terribly damaged her. The Cordilleras tried in vain to get out of the way. but the Poplar smashed into her, damaging her so severely that she, too, had to be beached. Pearson's Weekly. ' ! : HUMOR J)F THE DAY! Christmas Shopping. Oh, the day I went Went to do my Christmas, shopping HIS GOOD FORTUNE. i Went to buy a mult for mother. Went to buy a pipe for father. Went to buy a doll for grandma And gold spectacles for baby-- No oh, no it was the other Way about! But, mercy, gracious. Such a wild, bewildering chaos Was the crowded shopping district! 'Twas enough to drive me frantic! Ever thicker, thicker, thicker. Surged the crowd at all the counters. Ever deeper, deeper, deeper. Plunged my hand into my .pocket. Recklessly I spent my savings: Paid too much for Katie's present: Bought a clock for Leonora When 1 know that she has seven: Bought a chafing dish for Robert. Though he simply hates Welsh rabbit. But no one can reason clearly a jostling crowd of people. Hustling, bustling, frantic people Matching samples, snatching bargains. Asking questions, scolding salesgirls. Once I asked a haughty walker To direct me to the "notions." But the crowd around that counter Squeezed and jammed like surging waters. Elomeward then I sadly hied me. Saying, "1 will go tomorrow Bright and early in the morning. And before the crowd assembles I will do my Christmas shopping." But you know how many duties Face a housewife in the morning-Johnn- y's luncheon, Susy's mittens. Baby's bottle. Bridget's orders. All at once to be looked after; Husband going, tradesmen coming. And the telephone bell ringing Till the morning, swiftly slipping. Is half gone before I'm ready Once again to start out shopping. Once again to breast the surging Of the tides of Christmas shoppers.

I was Just ut t'.uj; iijmn my thirty-four-th year v lien, owing to the failure of my wife's lather, 1 found myself obliged to make a living. I had often wondered where all the steel rails came from, and now I determined to go into the business of supplying them to railroad companies. Having learned through careful inquiry that nearly all of them were made In rolling mills, 1 persuaded the owner of a bankrupt iron foundry to convert it Into a rolliug mill. Then I went tc a good reliable machinery man on the next block and told him to send me some of the very bet rolling mill machinery that he had in his store. Meanwhile my noble wife had not been idle, and by the time I was ready to begin operations she had induced several ofthe most brilliant women In society to agree to bny all their steel rails of us. Touched by her unselfish devotion. I clasped lcr in my arms, while the tears coursed down my cheeks. Then I called on a railroad president, told him that I desired to become self supporting and asked hint t j buy some of my rails. lie told ine ; deliver a basketful to his place ul business every Saturday night. Greatly elated over my prosperts. I called together a number of workms-me- n whom I found idle on the stm and directed them to make some ui c steel mils without delay and take them around to the kind railroad president. Rejoicing at the prospect of steady employment, the workingmen hastem-- 1 to obey, and the rails that they ia'k under my direction proved so durable that in a very short time I had all the orders that I could till. I attribute much of my success t the fact that each rail is delivered to the customer tastefully wrapped in tissue paper fastened with pink ribbon. Delineator. DINNER GUESTS.

Bills It is an accepted aphorism that one should never be late at a duel or a Tardiness is unpardonable, dinner. but the converse is also true. If it is an offense to be late It is unforgivable to be too early. This refers solely to the dinner, since duels are affairs- of the past. Overhaste may be flattering, but it is also inconsiderate. If the dinner is Important enough to be called a "function" and the house in which it is given is sufficiently large to be rated as a mansion the early guest may find a hostess still in her maid's hands. If instead a cottage and a simpler repast await one the housewife may herself be putting the last necessary touches to the salad. In either vase the hostess feels a warm personal approval and an ability for self praise if the coming guest is a little tardy. Should the soup be cold or the roast dry it Is not her fault; she was on time. Can anything be more harassing than type of the woman who always comes half an hour early and always wants to "help?" Can anybody , worship one's household gods, turn away the nicks, display the gleaming side in the profaning presence of a comparative stranger? A despairing hostess said recently: "When I have just men coming I spetid iny soul on the cooking: when It's women I put my extra efforts into burnishing the house; when It's both I almost kill myself, and when they come too early I want to lie down and die." "The quality of mercy Is not strained." It applies even to giving one's prospective hostess ample leeway for preparation. Failing this. Invitations may soon be written. "At 7. and please be late!"

Objection was made that the question should not be answered because the conversation was private in its nature.

She replied that her mother and the husband's mother were, whereupon the judge remarked: "it appears that both mothers-in-lawere present.
