The First Christmas
IT often has been stated tbat tbe
birtb of Christ must bare occur
red four years before tbe date
flxed on for tbe current chronolo
gy and tbat it I* probable tbe eveat be
fell at some other time in tbe year
than a few days after the winter sol
stice. Tbe reason for the confident as
sertion is tbe ascertaining of tbe fact
that Herod died about four years B. C.
Tbe basis of this supposition is tbe
report that at the time of the birtb of
Christ "tbere were shepherds abiding
in tbe field, Watching tbeir flocks by
night" a circumstance not natural in
tbe latitude of Bethlehem near the
shortest day. Tbat is tbe height of
tbe rainy sen son In Judea, and tin?
date does not appear to hare been ob
served generally before the fifth cen-
Many students of. Biblical history
"Sty*, argued tbat the-atory about the
star of Bethlehem points to a data for
tbe Nativity not later than May 8,
p. C. S. On tbat date the planet*
Venus and Jtiplter were so cloaely in
conjunction as seen from tbe earth
tfcat. tbe apparent distance between
theiti was equal only to tbe breadth of
toe-fall BHMMI. Tbeae planets war*

then visible in the east a couple ot
hours before sunrise aud must have
produced a strikingly beautiful appear
ance and bare been spoken of as one
object. That was about fifty days less
than two years before the death of
Herod, a fact which hartnouizes well
wltb other conditions of the narrative,
for It Is probable that the mandate
for the slaughter of all the children
two years old and under was Issued
some months before his decease, and
the limit of two years would leave an
ample margin for any uncertainty aa
to the time of the appearauce of the
(tar, as related by the magi; also there
were no paschal fall moons on a Fri
day between the years B. O. 0 and
A. D. 83 and no other following that
till A. O. 00.
From this It would seem to follow
that Christ was tbirty-elgbt years old |
at the time of the crucifixion, and this I
would vindicate the sagacity of tbe
Jewish doctors wbo affirmed that be
was not yet flfty (forty?) yean old. It
li remarked, too, that In the spring of
the same year there was a triple con
junction of planets-Hatum. Jupiter
and Mara— and that the first two
■anted were In conjunction aa seen
from the earth no less than three time*
la the ysar preceding—thst Is. B. 0. 7.
Another theory about the star of
Bethlehem whlcb has been advanced
Is that tbe star seen by the magi is
Bplcs, the leading brilliant In tbe con
stellation of Virgo, tbe Virgin. For
many years before and after tbe
Christian era tbe star was changing
Its place until It was then literally •
"star In tbe east." and Its movement
la that direction may have been the
very fact noticed by tbe wlae men of
some centuries preceding wbo expect
ed that tbe prophecy about tbe Virgin
would be fulfilled when Its principal
•tar reached tbe position noted. If
this were so tbe visit of tbe magi from
Baetrtn, In tbe far east. Is easily ex
plained. and tbe chief difficulty attend
ing tbe explanation Ilea In the fact
that such sn Important search aa they
udertook Is noticed by only one out
oi the four evangelists.
Tbe uncertainty of tbe centorlss In
regard to tbe date at tbe Nativity In
year and month may never be cleared
op. Its existence hss been unfslriy
cited as res nun for disbelieving tbe
whole narration. Tbe people of 2MO

A Feel In the Christmas Air

By JANES WHITCOMB RILEY
THEY'S a kind o• fed in the air to me
When the Chris'mas times sets in
That's about as much of a mystery
As ever I've run ag'in.
Per instunce, now, whilse I gain in weight
And gineral health, 1 swear
They's a goneness somers I can't quite state
A kind o' feel in the air.
They's a feel in the Chris'ma# air goes right
To the spot where a man lives atl
It gives a feller a appetite—
They ain't no doubt about that I
And yit they's somepln—l don't know what—
That follers me here and there
And ha'nts and worries and spares me not—
A 'kind o' feel in the air.
They's a feci, a* 1 say, In the air that's Jest
As blanied-on sad as sweet
In the same ra*sho as I feel the best
And am the spryest on my feet
They's alius a kind o' sort of a ache
That I can't locate nowhere.
But It comes with Chrls'mas, and no mistake—
A kind o* feel in the air. -»
Is it the racket the children raise?
Why, nol'-tiod bless *em, not
Is It the eyes the cheeks ablaze.
Like my own Wuz long atfo?
Is it the bleat o* the whistle and beat
O' the little toy drum and blare
O' the hornf Hfo. no I It is Jest the sweet—
The sad-sweet feel in the air.
