membrance of a divine event It not the commemoration of a battle a coronation or a great discovery r time obliterates the memory of ese and they fade Into mere his torical data The event which Christ mas calls to mind Is infinitely above the classification of human records and is palpitating with Interest and life in the memories and hearts of millionsThose who lose the faith or who have never had it can not appre ciate Christmas or taste its pure joys For them it must be a sad season for they ifool themselves just out of Joint with the traditions V of mankind and feeljhe stings of remorse arid forebodingl For them this holiestseason Isa mere orgle of material feasting anda time for theirendspresents Now Christmas Is unin audI1I telligible without Christianity even those unfortunate people who have lost the faith must feel this if they are imbued with the feelings which English literature engenders on this subject I There are some sad people who disbelieve the word of God and never darken the door of a church and yet year after year they read Dickens Christmas stories and Wash ington Irvings beautiful sketches And may tho Christmas of Dickens f and Irving long survive in our litera ture for it Is the Christian Christ i I mas and if those great authors wrote nothing else they deserve the title of benefactors of the Englishspeak ing race for their Immortal tratlses on this greatest of Christian fes tivalsII Christmas is a great leveler of humanity Or it might he more cor rect to say Christmas elevates all to an equal level When England lost the faith she lost also many social blessings which follow In the train of faith Christmas is the great leveler It Is so in Catholic lands In fact the great days of the Catholic calendar are all levelers Ash Wednesday sees the rich and poor learned and ignorant at the rails to be branded with the brand of the tomb Palm Sunday sees them again together receiving the palms and tch and poor meet before the altar of the palm

Irish woolens which annihilated the indus try That trade never recovered From the blow England gave bounties to manufacturers in various lines subsidies to ships apd none to Ireland After bankrupting
