Never before in the history of the
country was the Christmas Spirit so
touch in evidence as this y?ar. From
all parts of the country come reports
that men and women of means open-
ed up their hearts and pocket hooks
as never before, giving of their abun-
dance to relieve the wants of suffer-
The only trouble seems to have
keen that there were not as many
suffering as was expected—the suf-
fering being confined almost ex-
clusively to those who on account of
sickness or general debility could not
make a living for themselves and
Iheir families. In all the largf citi -
ft>r instance, where great Christmas
dinners were prepared by the chari-
table associations, they went begging
—only hundreds appearing to partake
where thousands were cxpected.
Great baskets of food and raiment
•rcre taken to many homes where
want and suffering were general in
Kir days gone by, only to be told
fliey were not wanted; to take them
somewhere's else where they were
needed. And this has been the story
Irom everywhere in America. What-
ever may be conditions in other
countries, it is certain that compnri
lively very few persons in Americn
went hungry or cold on Chri-itmn <
What is the cause? Two cause-
predominate, viz: Prosperity and
Prohibition. Maybe a better way to
put it would be, Prosperity caused
liy(Prohibition—for it is certain that
much of the abundance of money in
the, hands of the general public todav
•s by reason of the fact that they do
not spend it for liquor. Kvervwhere
in Jhe United States prohibition i.
more or less in operation, and thous-
ands of workmen who formerly spent
their money for booze are todav
spending it on their wives and fami-
Bes, with the result that all of them
.••re in better circumstances than be-
fore, and that love and happiness and
peace and contentment reign in those
homes where heretofore hate and de-
progation and destitution and unhap-
piness were the predominating fea-

LONDON, Dec. 27—"The flimsy

Thus commented the Rev. Father1

the arch-bishop of 1'aris' edict direct-i

Father Vaugh, "modern fashions are
as injurious to a woman's body as to

LEGAL TENDER ABROAD
American Red Cross officials arriv-
ing recently in this country report
that the American cigaret is a very
useful medium of exchange in ICu-
rope. Two years of association with
the American doughboy and his ever-
ready supply of cigarets has given
the average European an insatiable
appetite for American cigarets. To
day a package will buy almost any-
thing from a trip across some nation-
al frontier to a quick comfortable
passage through places believed in-
American Red Cross officers on
the "Budapest Special" carrying re-
lief supplies from I'aris to Hungary,
found their cigarets their best money
and the only medium with which
they could really accelerate the work
011 which they came. At one point
were informed the train must be held
over for a day because there was no
engine free. The stationmaster in-
isted that there was not an engine
available, but a few cigaretes brought

AMERICAN GIRLS RUN
ONLY ALL-NIGHT DRUG
STORE IN GREECE
Three American girls manage the
only all night drug store in Greece.
It, is at Aigon and the girls are Am-
erican Red Cross workers who kept
the establishment 'open 24 hours a
; day while the emergency lasted. The
emergency was the care of 1.300 sick
miserable refugees who recently were
! landed from a transport to recuper-
ate and scatter to their former homes
All were Greeks and most of them
i had skin diseases. It was an all dayl
land night job and the three Ameri-
can girls decided that in order to sup-1
ply the necessary drugs and dres-
sings it was necessary to open an I
American drug store. The sign before |
