many of the candidates as possible
Saturday, but with the exception of
Mr. Helvenston they didn't agree to
. The reason for this probably is that
all the candidates are busy business
men, and most of them have very lit little
tle little experience In public speaking. They
have all expressed their opinion free freely,

feel like getting up and making a

nothing but honor, much hard work
and the certainty of considerable crit criticism

probably no one of them will be very

kindly feelings of our people to the

That overpowered their natural green.
How touching when et midnight sweep
Snow muffled winds and all Is dark
To hear and sink again to Bleep
Or at an earlier call to mark
By blazing: fire the etill suspense
Of self complacent innocence!

Thus into narrow room withdraws!

Long years ago Shakespeare put
some fascinating words Into the mouth
of Ilamlet, words full of old legend
and tradition, as when he refers to the
"cock crowing for Christmas," as it
used to be called. The prince of Den Denmark
mark Denmark says:
Some say that ever 'gainst that season
Wherein our Saviour's birth Is celebrated
The bird of dawning singeth all night
And then, they say, no spirit can walk
The nights are wholesome, then no plan planets
ets planets strike.
No fairy takes nor witch hath power to
So hallowed and so gracious is that time.
Every one feels in that subconscious
region of himself commonly known as
the heart that the time is really a hal hallowed
lowed hallowed and a gracious one, but his mind
may tell him that to many the time is
not so gracious as it might be. Only
to the few perhaps has Christmas ever
been gracious, but there are newly
arisen classes who have not even at attained

a conspicuous feature of past Christ Christ-mases.

"Good will toward men" is even now
not of universal application, so that
there is still ample room for the exer exercise
cise exercise of hope. Christmas is the one
day in the year when the whole world
seems to feel a simultaneous longing
for what might be. One who under understands

has written, "All this world is heavy
with the promise of greater things,
and a day will come one day in the
unending succession of days when
beings who are now latent in our
thoughts and hidden in our loins will
stand upon this earth as one stands
upon a footstool and laugh and reach
out their hands among the stars.''
This longing for a distant ideal is the
same feeling which surges over one in
the presence of a splendid sea view
with wide, unknown horizons. It is a
feeling which will not be repressed at
the dawn of a beautiful summer's day.
This Bpirit of hope plays a great if
not always fully recognized part In a
successful Christmas. The spirit of
Christmas is largely composed of
hope. Ilope is, in fact, one of those
fundamental motive forces In man
which help to make Christmas possi possible
ble possible to him, and a proper use of this
force will do wonders with Christmas.
