on next Friday bo celebrating the birthday of our Lord In tliousnndH of ohiirchen devout bellorers will kntel aOl give thanks for the coming of tho Ore whose lift has been tbo greatest blessing the worldever saw The motto of tile day baa beeji thru ages the song of the angola Pence on earth good will to men II Aud there will he few who not in one wayor another have a little extra goodwill for some doI their fellow men on that day A fittla gift to a dear one or at an unusually cheerful smile will mark the occasion with all who areI really human But after all what a snall thing is this little faint imitation of Christ which lasts but a moment and reaches only a few feet How fur from being worthy of the Oat who gave his life for mankind is the puny celebration of the average persout How little real love how little goodwill to mankind there is in the hearts of most of usl And particularly What can be said of men who on this day fall others put into their mouths the drink that steals away their souls and go forth full of every spirit that Christ came to fight and subdue often causing desolation ROll In place of the goodwill and blimniug that fits the day f Surely no condemnation can be too deep for a roan who on Christs own day violates the whole spirit of His life Let tia lalhur this year set a new mark for the observance of the day not only in abstaining from the things which so often disgrace it hut in living closer to the real spirit of Him whoso birth we celebrate Let each one who calls on the name of Christ see to it that on His biithdjiy Its Gulls

expected aud Guldens defeat does not prove thnt Powers cnn run the district but only that a innn who attacked him will be punished Powers lien too touch wisdom to attempt the Impossible especially

You Gi M TREADWAY = Berea Kentucky MAIN STREET u I1 I gra o Eaao moI lLL know that the story of the birth and childhood of Jesus tho Christ told with such won derful simplicity In the Now Testament had taken deep hold upon the heart and tho Imagi nation of SChristlans the world over No oth or part or the gospel history has given So manythemos to S- rpoet and paIntorpj- No fother narrative tin the world has been Illustrated by so many famous artists It Is only to see some ot the treasons which have made It a favorite subject First there Is the religious Interest which centers In the entrance of the Divine Saviour Into tho world Such an event for all who be Hove In tho Christian religion must have a profound significance It Is tho sunrise ot faith the beginning Of a new spiritual world the laying of the cornerstone of the kingdom of heaven on earth Even If the artist himself were not sure of this did not altogether be Uevo It he would know that other people be lieved it and by the Imagination he could sea what a supreme Importance was given by the faith of Christendom to the brief and simple tory of tho birth at Bethlehem Second there Is the human interest which clings to the over beautiful relation of motherhood and childhood Tho tenderest and most unselfish love Is that with which a true mother lopka upon her little child the most perfect 4innocence and trustful Joy are revealed In the eyes of the baby who smiles Into the face of his mother bending over him The paint Jngs of the Child Jesus and the Virgin Mary have drawn Into themselves tho best thoughts ot men concerning tho gracious secret of ma ternity end the tin tMied bliss of infancy Fantastic Legends Third there Is tho poetic and pictorial interest which grows out ot tho Incidents of the story the strange contrast between the heaven ly significance of the birth of Christ and Its qiitward circumstances the blending ot light and shade Joy and sorrow hope and fear an gellc songs and earthly persecutions All these varied elements centering about a single figure afford a field ot illumination and Illustration such as art loves My first advice then to those who wish thoroughly to appreciate and enjoy these pic tures would bo to read and reread the gospel of St Matthew from the eighteenth verse of tho first chapter to the end of the second chapter and the first two chapters of St Lukes Gospel Then It w u4 tit vrlsa io read some of the later legends which wore woven in the apocryphal books and In the mediaeval poems and narratives about the birth and childhood of Christ Many of these legends are curious and fantastic evidently allegorical and symbolical They have none of tho simple directness and quiet restraint ot the Biblical history They are In effect clear Illustrations of that native trait of the human mindfAmiliar to every one who has tried to tell a true story tb a child the craving for picturesque detail How did It happen Where did It happen Who was there How did they look What did boy do afterwards These are the quest tions that children ask when they hear a story aud thesQ aro the questions to which men have given fanciful answers In the apocryphal and mediaeval legends such as the proovangcl1um of St James tho gospel of St Thomas the gospel of the pseudoMatthew The history of tho naUtilI of Mary tbe golden legend ot Jaco bus de Voraglne tho poems of Konrad of Fussosbrunn Walther at Rhclnau Abbess Kroswltha and the tradi tions given by Justin Martyr St Jerome St Bernard and many other writers Much of this legendary n ill and symbolist material was taken up quite naively by picturesSuppose tion which represents Mary as passing through a garden when the angel came to her that Is In accordance with the Protovangellnm which ssys that Mary was chosen by lot from among the virgins of Nazareth to spin the royal purple of the Templo veil one day as she was returning from the fountain with her pitcher of water the angel met her and said Hall thou who art full of grace 10 and when she went back to her spinning ho came again to her to complete his message If the picture represents Mary in the house working at the veil the artist has chosen to show us the sec ond appearance of the angel The emblems which the artists put into their pictures are significant The pot of lilies ct Marys side the lilybranch in the angels hand symbolize Amity The olivebough borne by the dove means peace Or here Is a pluture of the nativity which shown the Child and his mother and Joseph In a cave This Is according to the account of Justin Martyr and In harmony with the customs of Palestine that the stable of the inn where Christ was born was a grotto In the rocks Hero perhaps you see the ox and the ass bowing their heads before tho child This Is told by the gospel of the pseudo Matthew In fulfillment of the prophecy of Isalfh The ox knoweth his owner and tho ass his masters crib Here again is a daz zling supernatural light radiating from the child BO that shepherds who have Just entered must shade their eyes This detail is given In many legends How the Story Develops Tho five chief points around which the paint tags of tho birth and childhood of Christ nat urally group themselves are 1 The Annunciation 2 The Nativity 3Tha Usrsiter of tho Magi 4 Tho Flight Into Egypt 5 The Home at Nazareth 1 The Annunciation comes from the first chapter ot St Luke and with it are associated two minor Incidents the visit of Mary to her cousin Elizabeth and the birth of John the Baptist the forerunner of Christ Tho painters have delighted to show us tho virginal beauty and meekness of Mary tho Joy with which the angel brought his message and the awe and wonder with which she received the new con ception of her son as tho Son ot the Highest the Saviour of his people No picture of tho Annunciation Is good In which this wonder and this Joy are not expressed If In addition the painter has chosen to put in many details to yY y NM VY Vr mLJrol make us feel the Innocence and lovely grace of Marys life if he has shown ns the quiet work with which she la busy the sweet order of her room which Images the tranquillity of her soul this also Is well But the great thing is that ho should perceive and show as simply as pea sible the charm of that perfect figure Of malden hood no rudo peasant girl but one with royal blood In her veins and heavenly thoughts in her heart The Nativity 2 Tbo pictures of tbe Nativity have a great er variety of Incidents and of modes of presen tation The simplest are those which show Mary and Joseph In tho stable with the child then come thc o In which tho angels appear or the shepherds cnrao to pay their adoration another conception represents tbo mother alone with her babe adoring him or nursing him Pictures of the presentation In tho tem pIe and perhaps some of the Madonna and Child belong to tho general theme ot the Na tivity because their central Idea Is the advcat of Christ as a little babe Here the painters have found a wide field for Imagination and have used large liberty In expressing the feelings with which different persons drew near to the holy child Mary is almost always showu as wondrously happy somctlmes as In MuriUoa Adoration of the Shepherds lifting the cloth that cov ore the child and displaying him with gentle pride 3 With the Adoration of the Magi a new element comes Into tbo scene These wise men from the cant whether they were kings or not were the representatives of the Outside worldThere are pictures which show the Magi on their Journey led by a star sometimes shining in tho form of a babe in the sky and others which show them at the court of Herod asking tbefr way and others which show them being warned by an angel In a dream not to go back to Jerusalem and oth ors which show them returning by sea to their own country But the great majority of paint ers have chosen the moment at which tho gifts ot grid and frankincense and myrrh were presented to the child Here there Is room for splendid color and dramatic contract 4 Tho Flight Into Egypt Is the contrasting companionpiece to the Adoration of the Magi The ono brings the peat wojld Into the dwell ing ot the Child Jesus the other carries the Child Jesus out into the great world Story of the Flight The pictures of this subject fall into two r yv yvyw 1fiJ main divisions those which lopresont Its ao tual Journey and thoso which show tho Holy Family retting either by tho way or In the land of Egypt The paintings which deal with the latter theme commonly known as the lie pose Include sumo of tho most beautiful works of art especially during tho last three centu rhea Many details have been Introduced from the legends of the flight In which tho apocryphal History of the Nativity of Mary Is par ticularly rich This Is ono of them The Holy Family rested by tho road beneath a date palm and Mary desired to eat of the fruit but it hung high above her head Joseph being weary waa not able to climb tltn tree But the Child Jesus know Ills mothers wish and at his command the itda bent down 1U branches Then he thrust his fingers Into tho sand and a spring of water gushed forth The next morning Jesus thanked the obedient tree and prom ised that ono of ItH branches should bo carried by the angels and planted In Paradise The Tlurnjrh of the Innocents The landscape U half shadowed by night but tho moonbeams otavo a Nay radiance over plain and tho distant hills where the watch fires arc growing rod In front marches Joseph with his basket of tools on his back a sturdy son of toll The mother a noble woman of Palestine carries the child In her arms happy and fearless But who are these little children that run and float beside tho travelers They are tbo spirits of the mur dered innocents of Bethlehem set free to fol low the infant Saviour and knowing that tnitnigli him they have entered by the gate of death Into eternal Joy Three tiny ghosts In tho rear have not yet felt his presence nor caught sight of him and tho plan and terror of mortality are heavy upon them But tho others are radiant and rejoicing as ransomed souls and at their feet river of life breaking Into shimmering bubbles In which tho glories of heaven are reflected Joseph does not see the spirits 1 doubt whether eVen Mary sees them clearly But Jesus recognizes his former playmates with Joy He leans front his mothers arms to greet them holding out A handful of wheat the symbol of the bread ot HeavenIt all mystical visionary unreal Or Is It a true picture to the dye of what faith beholds in the religion of Jesus Surely It this gospel has any moaning It la the bringing of light and blessing to the suffering little ones of earth a deeper compassion and a tenderer care for them and the promises of a heaven full of happy children r e The Review Sunday School Ulloa for Dee 27 1908 SfttoUX Amnf d lor ThIs Paper OOlUEN TBXTKep thy heart with nil dJIlRence for out of It are the

modosty la a desirable aid to advancement In any profession In a small town In Maine there lived a brusque old doctor who for all his eccentricity vas a learned and skill ful man For many years ho had been the solo doctor In town but one day there came a rival In the shape of a young graduate The young H D did not pay his respects to his senior and tho old doctor In turn completely ignored the

Massachusetts was In torvlewed by tho representative of The Treasury an English monthly magazine whllo be was in London and was asked to express his views upon a number of topics Tho reporter represented him as saying that while ho did not favor prohibition I am in favor of all national legislation tending to tho dis couragement of tho drinking habit With whatever faults my own country may bo charged Americans are a tern perato people In my country hospi tallty can be dispensed and appreciat ed where no alcoholic liquor is offered in yours we Americans have the ut most dufflcully In getting any water to drink at your hospitable tables Every kind of substitute for it spirituous and nonspirituous is put before us but to offer or accept nothing but water seems to be considered outside your scheme of hospitable entertain mentThis utterance of the bishop will probably be much objected to by thoso who regard a dinner as very incom plete without the use of some alcoholic drinks says Temperance and who make a concession to what they re gait as tho foolish objections of some of their guests by offeringsomo nub ati tute but they never think of offering water They regard water at a dinner as being as much out ot place as catnip tea While tho bishop caunot be quoted as tho antagonist ot all spirituous drinks he can bo quoted as making a plea for people who do not want to use them or the substitutes sometimes offered In tbo Judgment of some it Is far butter to offer guests the bottled minors waters and tho like than In toxicants but there are many who pre fer water Why should they not have It One reason why It has not been offered Is the dread of appearing to be mean and another Is the notion that digestion Is Improved by draughts ot wines and the like Bishop Lawrence has settled ono point viII that It Is good form to provide A guest drinking water at dinner if the guest prefers It and tho doctors toll us that too much liquid la taken now by most people at meals and that all would be better off oven water drinkers if less fluids of any kind wore takonjxt dinner THE ONLY SAFE GROUND Total Abstainer Alne Certain Ho Will Not Seeomo Drunkard Dr Samuel

of things when In our foremost clubs in whoso membership are included pro fessional men of high standing even clergymen spirituous liquors figure prominently on the table Apparently there Is a widespread feeling among an excellent class of our citizens that It is narrow and bigoted to retrain entirely from wine and whisky But it is hard for some of us to un derstand how such men can free them selves from a feeling of awful guilt when they see the drunkard reeling through the street and hear the ag onized cries of his wife and children declares the Christian Herald Most men cannot go

do what the President has taught them are tho best things for the country Just now Mr Roosevelt has not succeeded In stirring the people up enough to force Congress to pass his measures But ho has done a great deal toward arousing such feelings throughout the country and by the time Taft comes in most of the desires ot the President will be forced upon Congress by tho public opinion of the country at lar3iOut of about fifteen requests which the President makes of Congress only three or four are taken up at all and these negatively Tho postal savings bank bill to make each money order post office a savings bank run by the Government will not be passed just now The Inheritance and income tax proposals will be taken up only because of the great national need for more revenue The currency or monetary system of the country will be let alone for the present Child labor employers liability federal control of Interstate commerce and of great corporations and labor legis latlon are among the matters which demand attention but which Congress will not deal with now Increased ex penditure for a bg navy and a big army can hardly be thought of Last ot all there may be no voting of money for the purpose of saving our forests and rivers But here is a place where Congress has shown somo signs of weakening It io said that a small Rivers and Harbors Dill will be passed although a few days ago that was deemed im possible Perhapa from forty to fifty million dollars will be carried by this bill though the lost one carried eighty four million There seems to be only one pass ago In tho message which Congress has taken seriously Last year It too away from tho President the money which ho has usually had to hire detectives In his mesaage now he says that this was done because the mem hers feared that their own improper theIfeels highly Insulted and on Friday Mr Perkins ot New York introduced a resolution calling for tho appoint ment of a committee to answer the Presidents charges and rebuke him The resolution was passed unanimous committeeIOn his side the President has had his secret service mon under Chief Wllkle and Moran get facts to backup his statement Mr Roosevelt seems to think that It Congress docs anything rash he can show It up- by proving that some ot Its members have been paid by business firms to vote for the attars Interests The Senate feels as badly as tho House but is waiting a little while before taking action like that of the House In order to maintain Its dignity and because It has found already that Roosevelt usually can get even when ho tries to The President hw been very sharp In his advice to Congress for the past two years and now Con gress knows that he Is about to quit his office and wants to pick a quar rel with him on this small matter out of what might be called spite It Is likely that Congress will finally not have quite nerve enough to risk what he may be able to prove and the whole matter will simmer down tc nothingOn morning Mr Taft asked Speaker Cannon to come and see him about the tariff and Mr Cannon did so It Is said that Uncle Joe promised to do what Mr Tatt wanted so that now there Is friend ship between the twotho sort pf friendship that the United States lias with Spain When ono party Is defeated he Is always ready to be friends with his victor Since this meeting between the two men the public interest hero 1U the tariff hear ings has ceased It is understood that the problem now is how to reduce the tariff where it is not need ed and at the same time keep enough of it to provide for revenue for Gov ernmental expenses Secretary of the Treasury Oortelyou In his report this week urges Congress to ha very care ful about cutting down tariff reven UOS as more than a quarter of our national revenues comes from customs duties He estimates that the country will spend 114000000 more than it gets this year Now that tho Speaker has made his peace with tho Presidentelect the opposition to him In the House has melted away Even the tight to have the rules of the House azin2c has tailed It appears that the Demo crate wero hardly sincere In their protnlso of assistance The arluua meta who were talked ot as possible opponents to Mr Cannon for Speaker are all trying their best to deny that they or their friends ever thought of such a thing The Speaker feels so sure of himself and his place now that he dared to openly rebuff the National Rivers and Harbors Congress on Thursday Tho Congress bad Invited him to speak supposing and hoping that he would make promises of help to their plans for the spending of very large amounts ot United States money for waterway Improvements On the contrary Mr Cannon threw a chill over the enthusiasm of the assembly by stating that he was against the appropriation of a single dollar for such purposes atthis time Two great national convention which have met hero this week are rthe Southern Commercial Congress and the National Council of Trade The Southern Commercial Congress Is one ot tho llvest and moat ener getic associations the Capital has wel corned for many months Instead of simply Indulging in talk and banquets it has made a compact organization and arranged to build a million dollar building in Washington as its head quarters The enthusiasm It shows is spontaneous and genuine and evi dently springs from a real prosper ity In the South The National Council of Commerce has been created by the order of SOc retary Straus of the Department ot Commerce and Labor It consists of Jrepresentatives from more than forty of the greatest Industries in the country and may become very effective in promoting good fceltng and evon practical busiest cooperaUon among industrial circles Also It will furnish advise and recommendations for laws for the regulation of trusts Inter state commerce the tariff and that kind of affairs The threatened quarrel between the Senate and Secretary Moat on- I amount of bls having made what Is said to amount to a treaty of alliance with Japan without consulting the Senate as tho Constitution provides has largely diaapepared The Republi can majority will pay no attention to the matter and now the Democrats are to take it up The Democrats have to have something harmless and unimportant to agitate themselves over and now that the treaty ques tion has ben tuned over to th=to amuse themselves with It may be said to have ceased to be an active Issue President Roosevelt has been hav- Ing another lively war this week with some newspaper men who allege that the 40000000 which was paid to the French owners of the Panama canal at the time the United States bought it were as a matter of fact given to a New York concern The facts seem to be that the New York people bought the rights of the French owners but allowed the latter to do the bargaining with the United States An offi cial of the French Government certainly signed the receipt for the money Now the President is
