ARE YOU AN IF-IST? [Newspaper Article] — Cowra Free Press — 21 January 1911

ABE YOU AN IF-IST? Grover Cleveland once declared that ho ivas an optimist, but not an "if-ist." "An if-ist," said Mr. Cleveland, "is a person who is a slave to tho little word 'if,' whereas an optimist hopes for tho best in a sane manner. The if-ist is never quite sane. I once knew an if-ist who was lost in Maine woods with a com panion on a hunting expedition. As night came on they made camp, but, al though they were hungry, they had shot 110 game and had nothing to cat. With a perfectly serious face this follow look ed at his companion and said, 'If we only had some ham, we'd have ham and eggs, if we only had some eggs!' "

OmtlSTMAS DAY. Why December 25 7 (Rev. A. E.'J. EOSB, M.A.) That the birth of Jesus Christ, the Saviour of tho world, should, be celebra ted aB tho most glorious ovont in history, is natural. The propriety of its observ ance is no longer questioned by any of the followers of Him who came down from Heaven and was incarnato for us men and for our salvation from remorse, despair, defeat. Tho only, question is, on what day should tho observance be? Was Decomber 25 tho actual day of the birth? If not, how camo that day to be tho fixed annivorsary? Though for the first three centuries there ia no record that it .was kept in tho Western Church, yet when the Philocaliau calendar was compiled in tho year 33G A.D., it 5s certain that' Christmas was an . established festival, and Chrysostom in tho year 380 A.D. talks of it at Antioch as of some years' duration. This father also defends the chronological correction of tho date as if there was some historical tradition to rest upon. . Eastern Ch...
