C., under the Act of March 8. 1819. It is not Riven to many to be heroes, but everyone can be a use ful citizens and that is always in order. Between tbe great things we ceiinot do and the small things we will not do there is great danger of our doing nothing. By the common consent of all moralists war is regarded as a sin against humanity, and it is equally true that the wages of sin is death. " If yon cannot see the great im provements which have taken place in our town within the past two years you are blind. And when we say improvements we do not mean in any one particular, either. There have been enor mous improvements made In the way of residence building and re modelling, there have been im provements in the way of added business henres, and above all there has been an improvement in the moral tone of the place. It has not been long sinoe it was a common sight to see men disagree ably drunk on the streets, while now it is a very uncommon sight to see any man under the influence of liquor. And in every other way the town lias greatly im prayed. A general wave of pro greseiveness and a feeling for higher morals appears to have taken hold of our people, and here as elsewhere public senti ment regulates public conduct. When public sentiment demands a higher moral life the result is always a better place, and when the public agrees that they live in the very best section of. the coun~ try then improvement begins, and this infection Spreads even to the stranger that is within your gate. We have the very best town and is situated in the very best section of the state and our own people have awakened to the fact. There is still a greater and better town coming. A^e you aiding in the forward movement t The spirit of Christmas! What is the spirit of Christmas! It is the geoerous spirit, the spirit of giving! Yes, but that is Dot all. There will be millions ,of gifts made between now and the new year, and they will not all express the Christmas spirit. Some will be made out of pockets of plenty and thus entail no personal service; some will be made under compul sion of supposed necessity. How many people give things at this time because thev think they must' They must give to tnoee who, they hope or fear, will give to them. It is almost unfortunate that giv ing and taking has become such a feature of our Christmas celebra 4ion because the mere gift is in capable of expressing the spirit of this occasion, and the occasion it self has become a burden to mauy because it has been so much abuse. It is not by giving lavish ly that we honor Christ whose birth we celebrate, but by sharing unselfishly every good thing we posses. This puts the best things of Christmas within reach of every human life and enables every human being however poor in goods to give generously of whatever else he has. IJWs all have much. Is money denied us. then let.us give what is better, a word to cheer, a smill to awaken hope, something out of our hearts' treasure. Who would not rather get a cordial message from a friend that would express his thought and appreciation, than to get a dollar trinket! What heresy to think that we caDnot express an unselfish love at Christmastime except by lavish us of money. favtgoratiag to the Pale aad Slcklj ? ?srjs,aa.'a-aKrst IN m ZONK tMiclal KepiirU I r.*i> Hfmtqiwrlent of Wflllibi* .Nations.

Eor a great many years doc tors pronounced it a local disease and prescribed local remedies, and by con stantly failing to cure with local treat ment, pronounced it incurable.
