1.—Now when Jesus was born in Bethlehem of
Judea in the days of Herod the king, behold
there came wise men from the east to Jerusalem
2.—Saying. Where is he that is born King (J
the Jews? for we have seen his star in the eaafc
and are come to worship him.
7.—Then Herod, when he had privily called the
wisr men, inquired of them diligently what time
the star appeared.
8.—And be (Herod) sent them to llethlehem,
and said. Go and search diligently for ehe young
child; and when ye have found HIM, bring me
word again, that I may come and worship him
9.—W hen they hail heart! the king, they de
parted; and. lo, the star, which they saw in the
east, wmt before ehem fill it came anrl stood
over where the young child was.
It When they saw the star, they rejoiced with
exceeding grr«t joy.
11,—And when they were come into the house,
they saw the young child with Mary his mother,
and fell down, and worshipped him; and when
they had opened their treasures, they presented
unto him gifts; gold, and frankincense. and

herds abiding in the field, keeping watch over
their flock at night.
9.—And, lo, the angel of the Lord came upon
them, and the glory of the Lord shone around
about them; and they were sore afraid.
10.—And the angel said unto them, Eear not;
for, behold, 1 bring you good tidings of great
joy, which shall be to all people.
11.—Eor unto you is born this day in the city
of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Ix>rd.
12.—And this SHALL BE a sign unto you; Ye
shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling
clothes, lying in a manger.

multitude of the heavenly host praising God, and

As the three wise men who came out of the east; and the humble shep-
nerds who were tending their flock; were all led to the lowly manger where
rested the new born babe—the Christ child—they followed "the Star in the

So we, today, at that time of year when the thoughts of all turn to
C hristmas and all that the word implies, wish you, each and every one, the
happiest and most joyful Christmas of your lives.
May this Yuletide be one long to be remembered and cherished in your
hearts, as the memory of the birth of Our Saviour has been remembered
through the ages. And in future years when you look back upon this Christ-
mas season may each of you say as the unknown poet of old
Long, long, be my heart with such memories filled,
Like a vase in which roses have once been distilled,
You may break, you may shatter the vase if you will
Hut the scent of the roses will linger there still.
And as the angels announced the coming of the Child of Bethlehem, so
we, today, employ music in order to obtain the riches that life has in store
for us, and while those who this Christmas day are enjoying to the fukest
the music of the Pathe, which only the strains of the heavenly host, heralding
the birth of C hrist could surpass, we wish to extend to our friends and custo-
mers our appreciation and best wishes for a Merry, Merry Christmas.
Meyer & Meyer
We take this opportunity to extend to
our friends the season's greeting's and
wish you every happiness and prosperity
during the coming year.
By your liberal patronage you have
made it possible for us to enjoy a splendid
holiday business—in fact the best business
throughout the year that we have ever en-
Scarcity of merchandise and high prices, with other
obstacles of which you are familiar combined to make it
a rather difficult problem. The success in overcoming
these things is due not only to our own efforts, but to
your liberal support.
We have tried to give you our best service, and if at
any time you bought anything here that was not satis-
factory in every way, we wish you would bring it back.
"Santa is coming tonight, dear, so close your eyes and go to
"And will he bring me everything I asked him to, mamma,
will he bring me my hobby horse and sleigh and fire engine
"Yes, dear, he will bring you everything you asked him to.
But he will not, if you are awake. Now, lay down and close
your eyes. That's the good boy—mamma's own little pet."
"And daddy's too, mamma?"
"Yes, daddy's too, son!"
The mother tucked the covers well around the little lad,
kissed him fondly on the check and then closed the door softly
For a short time after, lie lay awake watching the yellow
rays of the street lamp hustling back and forth in ecstatic pan-
tomime on the pictures and walls. Then slowly his little head
sank; heavenly hands leaned gently on the drowsy lids and
bore him off swiftly to the lands of dreams.
Away among fairylands of gleaming ice and snow to the
place where land and sky meet, his little mind drifted there to
the home of Santa Claus.
From out of the mouth of a monstrous cave set in between
myriads of clouds splashdd with purple and gold, he could see
Santa coming, comfortably seated behind two prancing teams
of reindeer, snorting and puffing in the moonlight, hitched to
a large sled filled to overflowing with heaping bags of goodies
and toys. Straight toward the slumbering lad's home the gal-
lant steeds turned their bristling antlers; over hills and valleys,
woodland and stream, sleeping towns and twinkling cities lie
could see them coming, racing like mad in the midnight air,
their nostrils distended, shooting forth jets of steam.
Nearer and nearer they drew to it. They were going so
fast that he thought they would never stop, but firmly the bits
grew taut in their mouths, their hoofs began to beat slower and
slower and with heaving sides and trembling limbs they came
to a full halt straight over the abode of the slumbering youth.
A loud thud and a troubled cry brought the father and
mother to his bedside. He lay on the floor with hair erect
and mouth wide open gazing about him in a bewildered and
affrighted state. The father picked him up and placed him
gently back upon the bed.
"What is the matter with daddy's boy," he asked anxiously.
The boy looked wonderingly up in his daddy's face.
"I was dreaming, daddy, about Santa"-—sobs mingled with
his words—"and, and, he was bringing me my elephant and
tiger that I asked him to, and he was trying to get them down
the chimney where they started to fight with each other, and,
oh, daddy, daddy, the elephant stepped on my tiger and ate
him all up!"
The muscles on the old man's face grew soft. He drew
the young lad to him tenderly.
"No, the elephant didn't eat him up, son," he 9aid sooth-
ingly. "Santa has not come yet." "No, daddy?" "No, son!
But he will bring your animals to you soon and your other
things, too; so go to sleep again—that's the little man!"
An hour later the pillowed head was breathing soft and
regularly and the bedroom door closed behind the parents
again for the fifth time that night.
All of us have been like that little boy We all have tossed
and squirmed in our sleep like he, our minds in a riot of joy
and wonderment over the coming of the little fat bundle of
humanity in a red suit and a big white beard. Bless his dear
old heart! How fondly his robust face and cherry smile still
lingers in our memory. May it never fade! Though the hand
of time has stripped the mystic world in r.-hich ivc first knew
him of its silvery lining, we love him just the same, more and
He is to us the Santa as of old, not as now. Let us always
think of this as we mingle with the kiddies around the Christ-
mas tree. It will bring us back to the days we onr« knew, but
can never know again. Let us lead them on to believe what
the old folks led us to believe about that dear old soul, Time
will soon enough teach them to look at him through our own
eyes, robbed of his tinsel and mystery.
