Day of home- gathering, of unselfish regard for others, of )resent-laden trees, of well-filled stockings, of tables groaning beneath their burdens el toothsome edibles, of tender expressions, of song and laughter avd mirth and inno- cent games. Where iu all the world may tritere be found such al,othcr annive, sary, one so ktdcn with the fragrance nf love, or so abounding in thought that ennobles? ttere we have a Christ.child in the stabts et Bethlehem, a scene that appeals to the sympathy and regard of the young; and the mother {:ohling the Babe to her nurturing }:feast, a warming heart touch to every ,nether loved thc worhl mer; and the angel romisc: "lie shall save tits people h'om of lnnd, let us hope, that the children can- not hang tip their stocldngs and hope lo find somelhing in them when morn. ing dawns.

As the firs Christmas day told of the hope of Israel, so each s, tccecding one declared the development of the God- thought in the incarnate God, until the cli- max of Divine goodncss was reached on Cal- vary.
