lishedK^a^g Christmas week here
tofoi^ t«5 we feel sure that our sub
scribers. will not expect an issue this

an abbreviated edition, with the hope
that you will find the New Year one

papers this week will allow us a
week to visit home-folks. We expect
to be back on the job the first of
the year and until then-BEST
WHY WE GREET »
THE NEW YEAR
' HY do we gi*et thee, O blithe New Year t
Whet ere thy plcdjee of mirth and cheer?
Comest, knight-errant, the wrong to right ?
Comest to scatter our gloom with light?
Wherefore the thrill, the sparkle and shine
' in heart and eyes at a word of thine ?
The Old was buoyant, the Old was true,
The Old was brave when the Old was new.
He crowned us often- with grace and gift;
-IBs 'sternest skies had a deep blue rift.
- Yet straight and swift, when his hand unclasped.
With welcome and Joyance thine we grasped.
O tell us. Year—we are fain to know—
What is thy charm that we hail thee so?
Through the ether clear, from the solemn sky
The New Year beckons and makes reply:
“I bring you, friends, what the years have
Since ever men toiled, aspired, or thought—
Days for labor, and nights for rest;
And I bring you love, a heaven-born guestf
Space to work in, and work to do.
And faith in that which Is pure and true.
