country at least on four different dates inad dition to the regular na tional New Years celebra tion on January 1 The first of these foreign celebrations will be that of the Greeks and Russians and a few other nationalities which adhere to old style dates They will have New Year on January 14 13 days later than the New Year of the new style Next in order comes the Chinese New Year on February 13 and but a day later February 14 comes the Mohammedan first day of the year The Jewish New Year falls nealy nine months later about the middle of Sep her oh the first day of the month of stluTIshd The celebrations vary both in accordance with the religions of the va rious peoples and their climatic racial and national characteristics With the Greeks Russians Servians Bulgarians and Macedonians all of Catholicchurchpleasant if not the pleasantest festival of the year With the Jews on the contrary thet New Year Rosh Has-p hana as it is called is far from being- a pleasant affair It is a day of retri bution of judgment It Is preceded by weeks of prayer fasting and peni tence and is followed by ten days repeltancewhichday of atonement a most grewsome aqd weird day dreaded by every or thodox Jew- Greeks Celebrate Two Days 1 The most interesting and joyous celebration of the New Year is that of the Greeks The Greek Year lasts two days In these twodays the Greek nature with its unbounded joy of life comes into its own The heart of every Greek thrills on that day with unbounded joy Passionately lie awaits the evening when in his little 1Greece in a genuine Greek restau rant with male cooks and attendants he can get his genuine Greek food Hellenic dishes and wash them away with Greek wine which was purpose ly imported into this country for the holidaysChristmas is a great holiday with us said a prominent Greek but it Is after all a solemn day It is a relig ious holiday No gifts are exchanged on Christmas and the three days which the holiday last are given over to religious meditation How different It is with the New Year Next to our national holiday on March 25 which commemorates the date of our inde pendence just as July 4 commemo rates the birth of the American na tlon New Years days for we have two of them are our greatest holidays In Greece New Year Is essentially a family holiday There we have a chil xdren s afternoon which is devoted en tirely to the young ones who are giv en the utmost opportunities to enjoy themselves In this country how ever it1s slightly different Out of the 13000 Greeks living in Chicago only 200 have their families here There are only between sixty and eighty children and as we are only just planning to build a school of our tI own we have not yet the means north call for a childrens afternoon on New Years day Still many of the Greek families will observe this ancient custom in this country They will have their childrens afternoon They will have their delicious New Years pudding known as kiijgs pudding in fact in many cases the pudding will be even more delicious than it would have been in old Athens For one of the ancient customs among theGreeks is to hide some gold coin in one por tion of the pudding and he who gets the share of the pudding with the gold coin in it becomes the favorite as well as the leader of the two days joy and sport In this country where gold is more plentiful than in Greece and where it is more easily earned by the Greek father the pudding promises to contain more gold and be much more delightful to the finder of the same Perhaps the most unique Greek dish on New Years eve is the roast lamb set up in Greek style of whicheach son of Hellas must partake The Toasting of1 the lamb is attended with a great deal of pomp The entire carcass of a lamb is set up on a pole and this is held over a fire until It Is duly roasted Then iUs sliced and appor tioned among the various persons present at the feast and the roast is eaten along with the other strictly Greek dishes and washed down with Greek wine Russians Like Our Food Russians in this country celebrate toproduceever home food Is not thought of The bread the meat and the wine of thE United States are considered as good as and even far better than the products of their own land The Macedonians Servians and Bulgarians celebrate the New Year per haps less elaborately also oil the same day as their Greek and Russian co- religionists The Turks celebrate their first of the year with the modesty character istic of people who have not yet any bold on a place The Chinese will have their cus tomary celebration of the Chinese New Year on February 13 with feasting and enjoyments with which the holiday is observed in the Celestial empirer In striking opposition to the spirit of joy and happiness which pervades the New Year of the Greeks and Christendom generally is the New Year of the Jews With the Jews who also observe the New Year for two days the days are not days of feasting and enjoyment but days of judgment According to the belief of every orthodox Jew every member of the Jewish race is tried on the New Year The books kept in heaven are opened on that day the record of each man for the year just ending is looked through and taken under advisement for ten days On the tenth day the day of atonement the fate of each man for the coming year is drawn up whether he should live or die prosper or be poor On the day of atonement the fate is sealed and nothing can change it any more 5 GERMANTOWN apt R J Hampton of Louis viUe JMessis WeP Hampton and John liBoeley of Winchester Rev and Mrs H F

question of whether or not a wife can testify for her husband was raised in the night rider trials and decided differently twice within an hour When defense offered to examine Mrs Bud Morris wife of one of the indicted men the state objected and was sustained because the only alibi she could testify to would be in behalf of her husband Under the Tennessee law a wife can testify neither for nor against her husband Later the defense put Mrs Bob Hoffman and Mrs Sam Ap plewhite upon the stand and their testimony was admitted Mrs Hoffman testified to an alibi for Sam Ap plewhite and Mrs Applewhite for Bob HoffmanIt that the Hoffmans were the guests of the Applewhites th enight of the Ranken murder As the evidence was introduced it be came evident that half the Reelfoot lake population spent the night of the murder Oct 19 with the other half To the surprise of every one the state not only admits this but will offer additional proof to substantIat- eit But the states theory varies from that of the defense- It contends that the various maws heads of families knowing that they were going out to kill Ranken and Taylor that night took their wives to the houses of friends in order that the women might not be left alone in the lonely lake homes Powers of Australian Police In Australian cittes the police are now empowered to enter private dwellings In which they

Naples to witness the weird effects of physical phenomena or the dar ing horsemanship of Australians Then he is taken from the historic ruins of Benares in India to the grandeur of Niagara in winter or the ineffable beauty of Savoy in France from tag sculptured art of Rome to the sulphur mines of Sicily or the fearless daring of English jockeys in a 10 mile steeplechase A new Reedham Orphan drill

th and hard and we made rapid progress We had crossed a bridge and with many turns made a course toward the southeast Now the ground became softer and progress was slow An interminable array of trees

these in my mind with the crosses on the diagram About half a mlle farther a small cluster of buildings loomed up dark and obscure by the roadside cTJ1s is the ijlaceI said confidently motioning the driver to pull up I remembered that Henry Wiltons map had stopped at the third cross from the parting of the roads No It Isnt said Dicky eagerly Its two or three miles farther on I trailed the fellow myself to the next house and thats a good two miles at east I had leaped to the ground ard yponed the door of the carriage We are at the fourttt place I said lAnd the cockeyed barn inquired Mrs IfnarPi peering out I w3s struck silent by this and xfceU blankly at the dark forbidding strdcjtur that fronted on the road Youn rlghtsaid Mrs Knapp With a Uysh Cant you make cir that fuuns littft window at the end there 1 looked lI ore closely at the build In theJim light of thestars the oat of whitewash that covered it matle it possible to trace the outlhnr of a window in the gable that fronted the road Some freak of the builder had turned it a quarter of the way around giving ita comical suggestion of a man with a droop to his eye t And the Iron cow I asked Stupid a pump of course replied Mrs Knapp with another laugh Now see if there is a lane here by the barn A narrow roadway just wide enough for a single wagdn joined the main road at the corner of the building Then drive up it quietly was Mrs Knapps direction Just beyond the barn I made out the figure of the pump in a conspicuous place by the roadside and felt more confident that we were on the right road The driver swore in an undertonei as the hack lurched and boggy series of ruts and a branch whipped him in the face I was forced to give a grunt myself as another slapped my sore arm and sent a sharp twinge of pain shooting from the woundtill It tingled in my toes Dicky protected between us chuckled soft ly I reflected savagely that nothing spoils a man for company like a mis taken sense of humor Suddenly the horses stopped so short that we were almost pitched out Mrs Knapp rapped on the carriage door and I opened it Have you come to the bars she asked presently- I guess so Weve come against something like a fence Well then she replied when we get through take the road to the left That will bring us to the house You are certain 1 That is what Henry wrote In the qipher beneath the map The house must be only a few hundred yards awayThe oars were there and I lifted the wet and soggy boards with an anxious heart Were we after all so near the hiding place And what were we to find On a sudden turn the

worst and weariest of times move ments Iltera y spoiled the reckon ing History began to build itself upon wretcnedness of a people and all creation to take note of time by its loss instead of its golden gain in the hours of perfect sunlightVBut the reaction has set in It is the glad hours and not the sad ones that are to be made to count Let us tarry awhile At the sign of the smile is the watchword which even pious pilgrims are sending out to upset the ancient reckoning Let the smile become the Christians rather than the devils sigh they cry In chorus and the joy of the spirit become

has been ushered in with all its mystery of the things which are to he We need then for our selves and for others to put the emphasis upon the Word new rather than upon the term year That another year has come is relatively unimportant The stress is to be laid not on the quantity but on the quality of ones life All that an earnest soul can do is to live each day of the new year by itself as it comes in its turn trying if so jit may he to put a I months effort in one day and a days victory into a single hour The time is short and it remaineth that all who know Christ and partake of his gift of new life should be diligent al r ways watch until prayer and boast I not themselves Of the morrow Suffi t dent unto each day Is the burden and blessing thereof The newness of the jaew year Is es sentially a newness of spirit A new man will always enjoy the new year When another January arrives it is distinctively the time to slough off the old and to put on the new There is an old nature to be discarded and a new spiritual manhood to be assumed The trouble with many people how ever is that they try to remake and I to reform themselves forgetting that to few good resolutions more or less loosely kept can ait best only touch the outside and possess no interior efficacy in the recesses of the spirit The new man who is really worthy of the name is the new man In Christ r Jesus Where Jesus is there is always t newness of experience renovation of t the moral nature freshness of hope and a resiliency of elastic joy It is not necessary to wait until the first of January in any approaching year to win the wisdom of such a heavenly faith or to experience the benefits of Thejthat believeth Each morning may be a resurrection each evening a time of golden promisefairyet not as fading as the sunset The New Year joy is for all of life all the time It is stimulating and encouraging to feel that a brand new year is offered for happy employment and that the I Lold records with their motley pages some still vacant and other marred and perhaps here and there blotted with tears may be put away and fresh unstained pages substituted in their place It is helpful to remind one self that those broken resolutions of 1908 may be renewed in 1909 and what is better reinforced by more of that prayer and divine grace for want of which the idealizing resolves of the past year were soon forgotten or went so sadly unfulfilled The new year means accordingly a new hope anew song a new endeavor a new outlook a new inspiration a new determina tion and a new grace every new thing that is good appears to be possible in its gift A hope like this makes any doubter optimistic and gives to existence the character of a life worth living A wide chasm seems to intervene between the old and the new Into its depths should be cast every regret every halting doubt and every ham poring fear which belongs to the past period ot our experience and which would burden and hinder our worthy efforts and spiritual progress in the new year Let us take up our new duties and meet our fresh opportuni ties in free gladsome and hopeful spirit knowing that God who has pur posed them for our uplift will give us grace to carry us safely through Happy New Yearn The message la sent far and near Let the glad greet ing be heard on all sides There is a prophecy and a promise in the New Year Even to those who are bent with grief or lonely by reason of bitter bereavement it is possible and timely to say though with lowered tone and softened accent Happy New Year Every year will be a happy or at least a peaceful one in which the presence of the Lord Js realized which is spent under the protection of his wings while its duties are dis charged in his fear and Its responsibil ities are borne with the assistance of his grace For the Christian every year should be an Improvement on the past and offer its additional oppor tunities for growing Jn grace and Christlikeness The Christian is a convinced and convincing optimist for having a heavenly hope which world can never give or take away he can in every condition of life find a basis for an assured happiness ex pressing itself in
