As I can feel a living body  |*j 'I make myself felt by it through the  | |se of touch, so, too, soul can feel  \ Jil by means of the spoken word.  }' Christ's word, then, is Ihc outward  \ ^iression-of His living thought.

He^ would, have His thoughts  ��  I,3  \l  Jibe bur thoughts, His words to be  \ }��� words, and thus diaw us to fcllow-  (1 fp by dispelling the darkness ofithe  ! qlerstanding and  disarming  our re-  i jjlious wills.    "Faith comes by hear-  t  'r" and "the love, of Christ constiaiiis  ',   j"   By that hearing of the word wc  I ^! warned into that activity which in-  ! v:es 'us' "to   take  the  swoid   of  the  [ iirit, which is the word of^God, living  fd effectual, and more piercing than  S ^two-edge sword."    By"it  we  battle  I -r way through the .darkness  of  13-  i |rance to "the   light   of    inspiration  ���j rie're  we discover what we ought to'  I <}ow and at the s^trnc time recognize"  % J,iat we ought to do.

No inipres-  bn is made on their souls, no change  sr the better is noliced in their con-  j f-ct  and   mode   of  life;   there   is   no  -> 'roidance of the wrongdoing the vvoid  \  'mdemns; no practice   of   what    the  ���i ,ord recommends. The reason why the  ;"ord fails is because it is not allowed  \ !> sink deep down into the soul. Hence  t 'iere is  no meditation,  no  reflection,  ] '0 recalling it to mind from time to  .   me.   The words  of the  great  Law-  \   iver, "and these words which I com-  -   'land   thee   this   day   shall   be   in   thy  \ !eart;. thou   shalt   tell   them     to  thy  < 'hildren, and thou shalt meditate upon  J 'hem sitting in thy house and walking  ���' in thy journey,  sleepfug and rising,  I ire forgotten.   But the opposite is the  ! [ule.   The word is soon forgotten.    It  !  's never spoken of in the household, at  , Vorfc in the shop or travelling about,  i Neither does it arouse in us any feel-  1   ng of real pleasure, for our minds arc  J  'lonsumed with idle or.vain thoughts,  >r our temporal matters preoccupy us.  '     Such, indecd.thc Apostle James com-  ;   sares to a man who looks at his covin-  ;   xnance in a mirror.   "He beheld lum-  i   self and went his way,  and  presently  j   forgot what manner of man he was.  \  For what is God's wotd but the hold-  i   Ing of the mirror up'to nature that we  '  'may see ourselves as we are; that we  <   may truly measure our worth by His  i   standard?   In the mirror of His say-  ;   ings wc behold the manner of man we  '   arc.   Wc see our inward failings   and  we detect the very cause of our sinfulness.   Wc  arc  permitted   to  make   no  ^mistake; the reflection is too true.; If  ;<ve allow the word to escape our minds  litis as if we turned our backs on the  'mirror, andin the turmoil, the care and  'the pleasure of life presently forgot tne  reflection.   And with what result?.No  i moral improvement, no change in rnan-  j tiers; the   same "'.''defilement    remains.  /Under such conditions if I am an impure man I remain so: if I am.a.dnmk-  ard I remain one; if'I am a blasphemer I continue my blasphemy. /��� Wliyf  Because'the .word'Of God, hying and  powerful as it is, "and reaching unto  the division of the soul and the mar-  ! row. ana a disccrncr of the thoughts  and intents of the heart," cannot -force  ! a free being to any particular action,  I cannot coerce the liumanhcart to beat  ! |h unison with what it dislikes.

But  ^. all of them except ' Christmas  BaVfteelf have faded into comparative  Insignificance, and gradually the St.  Nicholas, Kriss Krlugle,-and Santa  Claus mytlis, with the"' story of tho  Christ child, have gathered, around  the 25th of December in such "6wect  tonfusion" thrt.in It are concentrated  the eseence and beauty of all, and tho  former special gift-giving of other  days of this season is mostly done  away with, says the New York Evening Post. Even St. Nicholas day, De-  remiber 6, la little celebrated. It seems  a pity that the knowledge of American children should be so limited  concerning their own patron saint, at  least bo canonized by tho Greek, and  Roman churches centuries ago. Ha  lived during the fourth century in Pa-  'tara, a city of Lycia, in Asia Minor,  but his history proves kls cosmopolitan, "popular" qualities, for he became patron saint of Russia; in England there* are1372 churches named for  felm, and his tomb at Barl, in Italy,  is a shrine for thousands of pilgrims  every year. He became the protector  of boys and girls, and even found his  ,iway to the hearts of sailors and robbers, and was adopted by them.  '  Gift gl ring on this day had its origin in tlie story-of a nobleman of  Patara who was,too, poor to dower  bis daughters, and. they were thus  forced ' to remain ' unmarried. St.  Kicholas heard of this state of affairs,'  ��nd one night stole unobserved to tho  house of the nobleman, seeking a way  to give him of his own store of gold.  The moonlight revealed an open, window, and through this the good man  flung a bag of money. This prov.dcd  a marriage portion for the -eldest  daughter, while a similarly mysterious r esent th? second n'ght doweied1  the next daughter. ��� The third night  Nicholas was discovered by the nobleman, but the saint begged that h.s  gifts might remain unknown to any  others. Since that time it has bean  generally understood that sweetmeats  and other tnfies found.in shoes or  stockings set outside the door on St.  Nicholas ove have,been placed .tliero  fey the jolly old gentleman himself.

"The Romance of The' Daily Mail" (the  .famous London newspaper), was the subject'of a lecture given at St. James Hall,  London, on November 12. Mr. J. C. Foul-  irer the lecturer, showed, with the aid of  lantern views, the inception, publication,  rise and progress of The Daily Mail, iht  'chief aim of its founder, he said, was a  paper that should bo compact and concise, and should yet give the important  news of the whole world He had hoped  to reach a daily circulation of loO.OCO copies in tho couise ol twelve months, but  on the first day of publication���May 4,  1S3G���397,215 copies were sold. On the occasion of the death ot Queen Victoria the  record sale of 1,-191,000 copies of a-^iingle  issue was ieacl*ed. Mr Foulgor went on  to state that Tho Daily Mall costs ��l,c09  a clay'to produce, that the bill tor paper  alone Is ��1SO,000 a year,. and that the  minting machines swallow up m2 miles ot  paper (or fifty-five tons) every day. In a  birigle year the sum of ��30 6S7 was paid  to one telegraphic cable company for the  mere transmission of messages bringing  news from distant paits of the earth. 1 ho  staff of editors, sub-editors, leportors,  leader-writers, ptinters, and others totalled G30 persons, all engaged daily on, the  production of the paper Among the information exclusively secured by the  Dally Mail the lectuier mentioned the reporting of the terrible Diummond Castle  disaster, the interview with Lord Rose-  bery on his resignation, and the first announcement to tho woild of the conclu*  slon of peace in South Africa.  Their Leader Beaten.  British papers of Nov. 12 contain tho  summary of a publication Issued by the  German general staff on experiences in  non-European wars in lecent times It  expicsses ihe opinion that General Bul-  ler's failure at Colenso was due to bad  leadeiship. . . . "His mind did not  prove elastic enough lo take account of  the change In the situation; he thrust  General Olery aside and tried to inter-  tere and put matteis right himself. At  a rapid pace he hastened to the battones,  which woie slill flung, although shorlly  atterwaids they had to cease their fno  owing to lack of ammunition. Confidence  In himself and anj thing like calm ielle��-  tlon had vanished He is now no longer  the commander, but only one of tho combatants; no longer the General, but only  the officer In chaigo of a battery. Personally a biave man, ho physically succumbs to the impiessions of the battlefield. His whole piocedure is governed  solely by the thought that he must not let  the guns fall into the hands of tho enemy.  . . When at last he himself is hit.  when physical fatigue on this day of  burning heat begins to tell upon him,  when bad news ai rives from other parls  of the field, his energy ilags. He elves  way because he does not think that ho  can now find any issue out of the dltn-  culty; he determines to break off the battle begun upon entirely different assumptions, and he gives the order to retire,  'x'he brave troops were not beaten, out  only their leader,"  ���The work characterizes Lord Mothjion s  leadership at Magersfonteln as dodged.  It showed, It Is added, that he held persistently to the old notions about frontal  attacks, but he proved himself a thoughtful loader, who was prepared for battlo  and wasi not disheartened by minor failures. He rightly decided to cont taua-the  ; fight "after-the repulse pf the Highland  ers, but his methods of execution wor.��  faulty. It Is maintained that the English  frontal attacks both at Colenso and Mag-  orafontein m<ight have succeeded if tne  leaders .had not felt that they were physically, defeated.  The moral drawn Is that every i-.ew war  opens with surprises, rendering a Changs  in offensive methods necessary. Under  European conditions frontal-attacks are  Btill feasible and  to be reckoned with.

•   Burritt read aloud: ■'
"In consideration of positive info-rnk.

"Wiiat?    Eh?    How?"  Burritt  8tam

"See that bunth of cedars. Well, yot

For an instant the,proposition stag
gered Burritt. Then his keen busines'
tmind began to-adjust itself to the com
tmereial side of the tiansaction. Why
not? Layton could do' it easily—ihe hau
known Louie -for yeais—he would no'
bungle the matter. Bunitt could trus.;
!him for that. Did *he not love hin
(Burritt) she need nuver know1 of 'hi.

would know the blessad truth; theie

3ils happiness. It was easily worth tut
"Done" he eaid, gripping Layton\
'hand. "Shake, old man. A brilliant
idea." With a quick hand 'he affixed ibis
name, "Edwin H. Bunitt."
As' he waited behind -the cedars h«,
smiled at his sudden tranquillity. In thi*
as in all his momentous aflairs he ha-d
become as iron, not a" jierve unstrung
Yet no other affair had ever meant i
aim what this did. He had cared noth
jug for women till -he met Louie Adams. They''had amused'him; their pret
ty vanities and alluiing sweetness, theu
petty tricks and cold calculations, htir1
entertained him. Thev had made hin
fiinile, sometimes grimly, again happily
but never beyond the moment. Despilf
their lavish demonstrations he read them
aright. Not one of all tlie feminnne ho»i
-who had laid siege to Ins 'heait had re-u
ly caied for him. This he knew. An'
it was this knowledge that made him km
unhappy in his love for Louie. Fo
what grounds had ho to hope that tl,
most beautiful, gloiious, adorable wo
man in all the ^o.ld should love him, h<
repeated, miserably. And he could find n<
reason save the same old consolation wit)
which lovers of all ages have tricked
themselves—the sticngth of his devotion
ithe mighty power of his afTcction, nvuri
win her love, draw it forcibly from ou
her being.
Through an opening between the trec-
Iho saw her ooming, a tall, athletic gli
whose free, swinging gait kopt pace wiU
that of the  man beside her.    The sur'
rays fell on their uncovered heads; Lay

thought pleased him.
' "Sit here, Louie," said Layton, throwing himself on the grass.,. With one h-nvn
(he supported 'his chin, an'elbow resting
'on the other.
But the girl.stood still, and gazed before 'her, over, the long stretches ol
green sloping to the slender river, which
'sparkled' and gurgled ^beneath bho ahadu

Her bell-like voice nuig out scornfully.

"How much will you knock'down for,

Her arms fell listlessly; she glanced
down at him, her eyes wistfully tired.

"Perhaps he's all you aay., I think he

little with its bravery.

She caught her breath sharply, the

The following story of .the Pope is
told in the Italian' papers. A deputation of the monks of some order had
obtained an interview with him. According to the etiquette of the Vatican,
only Cardinals arc allowed to srt in the
Pope's presence, and an invitation from
him to do so is deemed equivalent to
the promise of a Cardinalate Pope
Pius X. is a plain man, utterly indifferent to the etiquette of tlie Papal Court.
Pie, therefore, begged the morrks to
take scats. They hardly knew whether
they could ventjre to do so, and while
they stood hesitating he said to them,
"You do not, I suppose, expect me to
chairs "

The question of stuffing or not  stuffing the Christmas turkey is debated from year to year.

Whether the old-  fashioned bi ead-crumb, _ sage - and  onions, chestnut, or, as in the south,  peanut dressing may be used, be sure  that the turkey is roasted breast downward in the pan.

The story of how Ohopin composed his  'famous "Funeral March" is rclaited by  M. Ziem, the celebrated painter, wno  still lives in Paris.

Writing to the fruit division, Ottawa, Mr. A. -W.

For instance, yesterday the Tunisian was cleared up, the bulk having  been disposed of earlier in the week,  and m the catalogues theie were over  1,250 lines under 10 barrels each (we  should guess averaging two and three  barrels), of different varieties We do  not know of any trade where so much  moncyiis being wilfully thrown away."

Once upon a time a trunk was a  trunk, and all trunks loked more or less  alike to everyone. Now a trunk may be  a bureau or a wardrobe or a hat-box, oc*  cordmg^to its owner's wishes and thf  amounVshe pay=i for it. '  The waidiobe tiunk sets on one end  and the gowns are hung m it on hangers.  This serves a double purpose, for the  frocks are kept free fiom wi inkles by  this method, and they are also much  easier to get at than they were by the  old way, when the "box" had to be unpacked every tune another gown wa3  got out.  You see, the hangersi are so arranged  that they may be pulled out, much as an  accordion is, and then pushed back again  The buicau trunk is better known. It  has drawers which may be pulled out,  just as those in the bureau are, and so  the necessity of lifting heavy tiavs is obviated. " , "^  But these inventions are not very well  known on the other side of the water,  and, consequently, they puzzle the customs inspectors not a little.  One of the bureau trunks owned by an  American woman, the French authorities  at Boulogne insisted upon opening simply because they saw it fastened differently from the ordinary trunk. Once  opened, they would not permit the owner  to pull out the trays or drawers for  their inspection, but insisted on lifting  them out themselves and searching every  hole and crevice for contraband goods.  When they were at last convinced that  there was nothing of the eoit inside,  they permitted the owner to replace tho  drawers, but the moment these were  pushed in and the lock snapped, the peculiarity of the thing seemed to overcome them again, and once more theyj  demanded the keys. The second search  revealed no more than the first, or  course, but it was with the keenest regret, apparently, that the inspectors saw  the hunk finally Koine away���there was  something nivst'eiiou* about it that they  ��� did not unde'istand, and they were sure  it meant theie was tobicco concealed in  a tecict coinpaituiLiil 01  a faUe bottom.
