of fuel shortage merchants are urg

open at 9 a. m., and close at 4 p. m.,
this gives short hours in which to serve

Christmas time! That man must be
a misanthrope indeed in whose breast
something like a jovial feeling is not
roused, in whose mind some pleasant
associations are not awakened by the
recurrence of Christmas. There are
people who will tell you that Christ
mas is not to them what it used to be;
that each succeeding Christmas has
found some 'cherished hope or happy
prospect of the year before dimmed or
passed away; tnat tne present omy
serves to remind them of reduced cir
cumstances and straitened incomes
of the feasts they once bestowed on
hollow friends and of the cold looks
that meet them now in adversity and
misfortune. , Never heed such dismal
reminiscences. There are few men
who have lived lohg enough in the
world who 'cannot call up such
thoughts ony day in the year. Then
do not select the merriest of the 365
for your doleful recollections.
