With that child was boru luto the world a naw civilization a now ohrlstlantty, u now hope. It matters little to our rejoicing whether this child was human or divine whether he was God or God's messenger of lovo. Christian and Infidel aliko agree that the 11 to He led was pure and blameless and tho principles Ho taught have blessed and sancltlflcd tho world. All over tho country, all over the world a few days hence it will bo also all through the air sounds tho greeting Merry Christmas! On tho sea and laud, to the palaco and In tho hovel. In tho hospitals and In tho prisons in the asylums amid the orphans and in tho homes for the friendless and for tho aged, wherever two persons meet who know and lovo tho story of Christmas, tho greet ing is exchanged. Where can there be a pantile to tho universal greeting? Is there any other dentlm.nt that has tho sovereignty of this cheor- ful and heartfelt world! It travels through tho mails like nothing ho much as the dove to the altars ot which tho scripture speaks, for suroly tho sentiment flits from altar to al tar of tho hearts of men and is as gentlo as tho dove. Grudges and animosity vanish beforo tho wafting of Christmas greeting, the smllo of hope Illumines tho countenance of those under tho pall of depression, tho dimpled cheeks of tho babies seem llko vcrltablo nooks for fairy hiding as the lips coo in response to the Merry Christmast with tho little emblem of tho day that comes to tho Infant from Its loving parent. In tho days of romance bostilo forces passed upon tho field, sheathed their swords and clasped hands across tho battle line, greeting one another with tho sentiment of universal good will. Christmas stands for lovo and for charity, for hopo and for Joy at tho promise ot fruition of that tho prophet of tho coming ot one who should bring peace and good will to earth; so tho churches hold their services and tho peoplo congrcgato to Join in Hinging or listen to tho rcn- long-mado Christmas Furniture si LUJsJBKlU Nothing adds more to the comforts of home than good furniture, and that's the kind we sell.

Large tanks do not permit sheep to drink unless the tank is full, therefrom, If cattle and horses lower the water In the tank so it is only a quarter of half full, the sheep will be unable to reach It. Tho Illustration shows a convenient addition, says tho Orange Judd Farraor This will be found of great valuo whero either water Is pumped by hand, by gasoline engine or wind power, A small trough Is sont In the end Into which tho wator Is pumped, and as It overflows It runs Into the larger tank. A raised platform at this end will make- it possible for sheep to reach Into the tank. Whero hand power Is required and the tank la nearly empty, without this conven - ience It would be necessary to pump tho tank nearly full In ordor thnt sheep might reach the water, whereas by this method they will bo nble to drink at onco. The same Is true In the use or wind power. As soon as the pump begins to work, tho sheep have access to the water. This method Is used with groat success In Conedalo farm In Winona county, Minn.
