mjmmmmmmmmm &amp; . - , THE BEST GIFT OF ALL - By Cynthia Grey 'sic It matters little whether our Christmas gifts are many and costly, or paltry and few. Beautiful presents will not' make us happy, nor will the lack of remembrances make us sad. However wealthy or poor we are, and how circumstanced in life, but ofte thing in the world can make our Yuletide rich and full of joy, and that is the godlike presence of the Christmas spirit. " The Christmas-spirit is the greatest gift of the Yuletide. "And, like sunshine and air, it is free to all alike. It knocks at everyone's door. To us who bid it welcome, it is a fajry godmother . Its magic touch transforms our meanness into kindness, our stinginess into .generosity, and our selfishness into love. It makes us forget our hatred, our misunderstanding and our differences. It brings us arid those dear ones estranged from us together in good .will and cheer. It makes us sympathetic, charitable, forgiving, forgetful of self, and. fill...

HOW-THE-ECHO OF WANT COMES IN THE FORM OF MINOR MISDEMEANOR .Gaunt hunger and grim desolation are stalking hand in hand through Chicago, and with their grisly touch comes want and suffering , ( , Last' week's severe 'storm, with its. attendant cold' and piercing off-lake wind, usher.ed in upon the poor of the city, privation and a reign of terror has gripped the needy. The different charity organiza-' tions have felt the effects in added applications for help; Hull House with its finger on the pulse- of poverty, has felt the throb of pain, and the settlement workers have redoubled their efforts tb.ward relief;. the increase of robberies and petty crime throughout the city is an echo of want among the destitute, and the municipal courts are tempering justice with mercy, realizing thesoUrce of much of the wrongdoing.The number of men who actually try to break into jail was never so great before; men who shatter a window, or commit some minor misdemeanor in order to be sent to the brid...

You are probably amazed, astounded, that such things happen; but the judge had heard such appeals before; he knew the suffering and trouble tljat lay back of .the unemotional words. He knew that a great fight had gqrie on within the man's breast before he. could bring himself to the point of requesting a jail term. In his halting way the man told the judge that his name was Martin Fisher, and that' he spoke Polish, ,havihg been in this country but a few months. Judge Uhlir also speaks Polish, and questioned Martin in that language. That simplified matters, and the man told his story, the words tumbling over themselves as he rushed along in his harsh, native tongue. Here is his story r "My name is Martm Fisher. I have only been here a short time, and have been living at 1034 W. 18th street. I obtained work. Then I started to go to night school and study. I knew that I must be able to speak the language' easily to get along in this big, new America. I.was making progress. I was happy,...

"real spirit of Christmas." But this is the Christmas spirit that prevails in thousands of hearts today a mockery and a meaningless phrase. You .have to see these things to feel them, to realize the appeal and the heartbreak in them. ,Words can't convey,, the- atmosphere. You have done your Chri5tmas "duty." You have made your gifts, wished all you ,met a" "Merry Christmas " and have thought in a careless way of "Peace on earth, good will to men," the words of the Savior. But remember , that he also said, in answer to the question: "Am I my brother's keeper?" "Go ye into the highways and byways, that ye may search out and comfort the weak and unfortunate." Think it over. HOW'TO EAT A CHRISTMAS DINNER Eat, Drink and Be Merry, But Also Be Moderate. . .

THE REGENERATION OF THE BIG BOSS The talk had turned to the gentler sex, as it will when two or three men get together in sobriety and tobacco smoke, and Jack Phillips, being twenty-one, and, therefore, full of pure wisdom, had explained bitterly that women we're a snare and a delusion, and not worth a moment of a man's thoughts. "Hark at him!" said Big Jim Stearns, superintendent of the Illinois division of the C, L. &amp; Y. "Hark at him! "And.him twentyone years old! Has Edith Martin turned her face from you, Jack?"' Phillips turned red, and then explained with some heat: "'Tis not because (of Edith Martin, nor any other fickle jade that I havecome to the cpnclusion. I have thought the whole matter out, and satisfied my mind, which is more important than the body." Stearns laughed. "I remember a man," he said, "who was more set against woman than you are, Jack Phillips. And now they tell me he can't turn around without paying "bills for college educations, and perambulato...

(THE END) o o THE YULE LOG The burning of the Yule log was for many' years, and stiU'is, a great part of the Christmas ceremony in England and America. It came originally from Scandanavia. With great ceremony the great log was rolled to the fireplace, while young and old sang songs of joy, made wishes and. danced. In England it was the custom to save a brand from the last Yule log to light the present one with. Many superstitions were connected with the yule log. It was supposed that if-it went out during the night it was a portent of bad luck, There is no gift of frankincense as fragrant as "a loving heart offered freely to the need of man.
