Go home for the holidays if you can. The clasp of a welcoming

Tells How To
The easiest and most effective
time to protect a house against ter
mites is during the early stages of
The problem, said Dr. B .B.
Fulon, research entomologist at
State College, is to keep the ter
mites from reaching the wooden
parts of the house.
These insects commonly live un
derground, but it will build mud
runways up the masonry walls of
a house to reach the woodwork.
The greater the distance from
the soil level to the woodwork, the
less the chance of termite infesta
tion, Dr. Fulton said. And a house
with a full basement is less likely
to be bothered than one without a
basement or with only a partial
Any part of the building which
is not directly over a basement
should be protected by removing
the soil to give a clearance of three
or four feet. Stumps and roots
in the ground underneath a house
should be dug out.
Dr. Fulton recommended the use
of termite shields for frame houses,
particularly those without base
ments.A shield is a strip of non
corrosive metal placed between the
foundations and the sills.
Well laid Portland cement gives
a good protection, he added, but
only so long as there are no cracks
through which the termites may
A common source of trouble is
in terraces or porches with a con
crete flood laid over an earth fill,
and on a level with the floor of the
house. Termites frequently find
cracks through which they can
reach the woodwork.
Building the terraces one step be
low the floor level reduces the
likelihood of termite damage.

The First Christmas
Now the birth of Jesus Christ]
was on this wise: When as his
mother Mary was espoused to
Jospeh, before they came together
she was found with child of the
Then Joseph her husband, being
a just man, and not willing to
make her a public example, was
minded to put her away privily.
But when he thought on these
things, behold, the angel of the
Lord appeared unto him in a dream,
saying, Joseph, thou son of David,
fear not to take unto thee Mary
thy wife; for that which is con
ceived in her is of the Holy Ghost.
And she shall bring forth a son,
and thou shalt call his name
JESUS: for he shall save his people
from their sins.
Now all this was done, that it
might be fulfilled which was
spoken of the Lord by the prophet,
Behold, a virgin shall be with the
child, and shall bring forth a son,
and they shall call his name Em
manuel, which being interpreted
is God with us.
Then Joseph being raised from
sleep did as the angel of the Lord
had bidden him, and took unto him
And knew her not till she had
brought forth her firstborn son:
and he called his name Jesus.
Now when Jesus was bom in
Bethlehem of Judea in the days of
Herod, the king, behold, there
came wise'men from the east to
Saying, Where is he that is born
King of the Jews? for we have
seen hsi star in the east, and are
come to worship him.
When Herod the king had heard
these things, he was troubled, and
all Jerusalem with him.
And when he had gathered ail
pie together, he demanded of them
the priests and scribes of the peo
where Christ should be born.
And they said unto him in Beth
lehem of Judea; for thus it is writ
ten by the prophet.
And thou Bethlehem, in the land
of Judea ,are not least among the
princes of Judea: for out of thee
shall come a Governor, that shall
rule my people Israel.
Then Herod, when he had privi
ly called the wise men enquired of
them diligently what time the star
And he sent them to Bethlehem,
and said, Go and search diligently
for the young child: and when ye
have found him, bring me word
again, that I may come and wor
ship him also.
When they had heard the king,
they departed; and lo, the star,
which they saw in the east, went
before them, till it came and stood
over where the young child was.
When they saw the star, they re
joiced with exceeding great joy.
And when they were came into
the house, they saw the young
child with Mary his mother, and
fell down, and worshiped him:
and when they had opened their
treasures, they presented unto him
gifts; gold, and frankincense, and
Ana being warnea ot uoa in a|
vision that they should not return
to Herod, they departed into their
own country another way.
And when they had departed,
behold ,the angel of the Lord ap
peared to Joseph in a dream, say
ing, Arise, and take the young
child and his mother and flee into
Egypt, and be thou there until I
bring thee word: for Herod will
seek the young child to destroy
When he arose, he took the
young child and its mother by
night, and departed into Egypt.
And was there until the death
of Herod: that it might be fulfill
ed which was spoken of the Lord
by the prophet, saying, Out of
Egypt have I called my son.
1. And it came to pass in those
days, that there went out a decree
from Caesar Augustus, that all the
world should be taxed.
2 (And this taxing was first
made when Cyrenius was governor
2. And all went to be taxed,
every one into his own city.
4. And Joseph also went up
from Galilee, out of the city of
Nazareth, into Judea, unto the
city of David, which is called
Bethlehem: (because he.was of the
house of David:)

8. And there were in the same
country shepherds abiding in the
field, keeping watch over their
flock by night.
9. And lo, the angel of the Lord
came upon them, and the glory of
the Lord shone around them; and
they were sore afraid.
10. And the angel said unto
them, Fear not: for, behold, I
bring you good tidings of great
joy, which shall be to all people.
11. For unto you is born this
day, in the city of David, a Sav
iour, which is Christ the Lord.
12. And this shall be a sign unto
you: Ye shall find the babe wrap

it -* suddenly there was
with the angel a multitude of the
heavenly host praising God, and

angels were gone away from them
into heaven, the shepherds said one
| to another, Let us now go even
unto Bethlehem, and see this thing
which is come to pass, which the
Lord hath made known unto us.
16. And they came with haste,
and found Mary and Joseph, and
the babe lying in a manger.
17. And when they had seen it,
they made known abroad the say
ing which was told them concern
ing this child.
18. And all they that heart it
wondered at those things which
were told them by the shepherds.
19. But Mary kept all these
things, and pondered them in her

glorifying and praising God for all
the things that they had heard and
seen, as it was told unto them.

from drafts in cold weather.
When possible, put wood or
concrete floors in permanent lay
Place the roost poles level, with
a screen beneath so the birds will ■

houses as often as the litter becomes

birds provide yards, allowing one
acre for 300 to 3SO laying birds.
Have two yards, if possible, so the
birds can be changed occasionally
from one yard to another.
Keep green crops growing in the
yards, and plow the yards as often
as time and crops will permit.
Treat birds for parasites, both
internal and external, whenever
they are present.But do not deworm
hens while they are laying.
Take precautions to protect
growing stock against internal par
asites and disease, especially cocci

m ' • • x rv,11«
AVE you ever seen a kitchen sink which has lost its beau
ty and lustre, a kitchen sink which is difficult to keep
clean? If so, this may be the result of having used a
scratchy, gritty cleanser. Now in order to avoid having this
happen to your kitchen sink, or to any of your household
surfaces, use only a cleansing agent which is safe and
scratchless. To determine whether or not you are using a
scratchless cleanser, make this simple test yourself. Sprinkle
a little of the cleanser on a plate, then rub a coin over it. If
you do not feel or hear the grating and grinding of scratchy
grit, then you know that you are using a scratchless, spick
