every street of the historic city they
would play their wild, plaintive music
before the shrines of the Madonna.
These minstrels or "plflfernrl," as they
were called, became rure after the
hitter part of the Nineteenth century.
In Sicily men came down from the
mountains nine days before Christmas
to sing a "novena" to a plaintive mel-
ody accompanied bv violin and 'cello.
The music of chiming bells fea-
tures Christmas the world over. In
the Philippines the dawn of Christ-
mas Is ushered in by ringing of bell*
in scores of church towers, calling the
people to service. In the dark tliejr
flock to the churches to the familiar
notes of the "Adeste Fldeles."
The music-loving world agrees with
the stranger in Bracebrldge hall. "I
do not know a grander effect of music
on the moral feelings than to hear the
full choir and the pealing organ per-
forming a Christmas anthem iu a
cathedral and filling every part of the
vast pile with triumphant harmony."

QUEER WAYS OF MISTLETOE
Popular Christmas Green Fastens Its
Roots on Sturdy Trees and Re-
^ HE mistletoe is really a de-
generate for it is a parasite.
Instead «>f being a healthy
tree itself, it fastens Its
roots upon the sturdy oak
and gum trees, and even depends on
others to have its seed carried to
places where they will grow. The
numerous pearly white l erries cover-
ing the mistletoe all winter attract
the birds. When a hird eats a cherry
he swallows the meat and drops the
pit, but the seed of the mistletoe is
sticky and clings to the bird's bill. The
only way for the bird to rid himself
of the annoying seed is to wipe It off.
Tills he dnes. on some branch of the
tree on which he happens to be at
the time. Later this seed sprouts, and
not finding earth, which its habits
have made it cease to want, it sinks
Its roots into the bark of the tree and
there receives the richest nourish-
ment. It keeps its leaves all winter,
and when the oaks are bare its waxy,
pale-green leaves stand out promi-
nently against the dull brown bark.—

The cheapest and most generally
useful electrical appliance and at the
same time the oue most seldom taken
advantage of In the ordinary household
is the portable laiup. This simply con-

an ordinary plug to screw into a wail

a lamp socket The cost Is very lKtle.

THE MEANING OF CHRISTMAS
Vice President Coolidge Places Con-
struction on the Greatest Event
in Human History.
4f*HlU8TMAS has but one
writes Vice President Calvin
I. Coolidge n the New York
Evening Post. The good-
ness, the justice, but also the mercy,
ihe helping hand of (Sod. Tills, the
greatest event In human history, has
a spiritual meaning. The Savior
came to minister to the spiritual na-
ture of man. He showed the true
glory and Importance of man—aud
helping him showed the duty of
helping one another Endowed with
the power, yet He did not bestow ma-
terial blessings or set up an earthly
kingdom. But to follow Him gave
the power to command all those.
To get the world to see the true
meaning of things, that Is the redemp-
tion The creation was all declared
good, it can be perverted. The ene-
my forever strives "out of good still
to find means of evil." The material
welfare of men does not come first—
to make It first makes It to be de-
stroying and destroyed. Christinas is
not Instituted f« r the purpose of earn-
ing the reward of gifts, but for giving
them in their true significance. "The
wage* of «ln Is death, eternal life is
the gift of God."

The Truer Things of Life.
We stand together at another full-
ness of time; perhaps it is a fullness
In which material things, the man-
made things, bulk largest. Perhaps It
is a time In which confidence in the
human seems to excel confidence in
the divine. It Is becoming Increas-
ingly evident that there must speedily
, come to men the visions of life and
real vnlues as they find their tiner
! and larger interpretation of him
whose birth the world celebrates at
Christmas. There Is a tragic. If inar-
ticulate, appeal being made today for
a return to the homelier, stronger and
truer things of life: we are looking for
a new birth of goodness that shall re-
store our lost peace and bring back
again to earth the deeper satisfaction
of the human heart.—James E. Free-
CHRISTMAS 300 YEARS AGO
First Yuletide Eve of the Pilgrims
Was One Saturated With Grave
Fear of Attack.
ITTIXG about their camp-
fires « n Christmas eve. 300
years ago, the Pilgrims on
shore heard a cry in the
woods and jumped to their
1 feet, expecting a sudden onrush of
whooping Indians. The attack failed
I to materialize. How the Pilgrims
spent Christmas is told in the Journal
they have left, which says: "No man
rested that day."
The settlers were nervous, and again
at night they left well-armed men on
These poor fellows on shore did not
have any Christmas beer to drink.
About this time, it seems, the beer
i supply was running low, and Captain
I Jones of the Mayflower was guarding
Ills stock. Apparently he put everv-
| body on a water basis. But Christmas
I night he relented. Beer was served
| to those of the Pilgrims who were on
i the ship.
The Real Spirit.
Has the real Christmas spirit been
laid upon its bier by a lot of old
fogies who have lived too long tr>
sense the thrill of the holly aud mis-
tletoe ; whose spectacles and whiskers
have debarred tlieni from entering the
kingdom of pure delight where the
children wander; and whose dyspeptic
spirits have been warped with acid
bitterness until they can no longer
flow with the sweet Joy of Christmas
cheer? No! The real happiness
and the cheer that go with red-rib-
boned wreaths and twinkling candles
peeping and winking from between the
green of fairy Christmas trees; the
thrill of myriad toys stacked In chaotic
heaps; the mystery of tissue paper
bundles; the secrets that fly back and
forth under the grave cover of seren-
ity; the smell of spicy fruitcake and
the mellow aroma of holiday baking
are here. They are here as they are
always here when the holidays are
Just before us.—Evansville Courier.
"Jim didn't call last night."
"He didn't. What's the matter?"
"'Sis doesn't know whether he's III
or just dodging a Christmas present."

Christmas Should Not Be Confined to
Family Celebrations; Make It
General Joy Fest.
4Y"^HRISTMAS should not be
confined to our own family.
Christmas Is of all days
U Community Holiday and the
entire community should be
taken in for celebrating the occasion.
Every community should have In the
local church, or schoolhouse Christ-
mas exercises of some sort or other.
The giving of recitations is one of the
very best trainings for children and
cannot be started too soon. As soon
as they are able to lisp they should
be given a part in Christmas enter-
tainments. It is a means of much
pleasure to them and something they
Will remember as long as they live.
Christmas, In the country of all
places, should be a community holi-
day. It's too big a thing to be kept
all within vout family.
Star of Bethlehem in Holland.
In Holland the harbinger of Christ-
mas is a huge illuminated star which
Is carried through the silent, dark,
Dutch streets, shining upon the crowd
of people and significant of the star
which once guided the three wise men
of the East. The young men who car-
ry the star through the streets gather
money for the poor from the crowds
who come out to watch for it. After
this they betake themselves to the
burgomaster of the town, who, accord-
ing to custom, is bound to set the
youths down to a splendid meal. This
