" Nor war nor baUail's sound  Was heard the world around,  The ponderous shield and spear  Were high uphung."  OO Milton wrote of the first Christmasin his  V*   "Ode. on the Morning of Christ*'Nativity."    Whether we attribute it to Divine Providence or not, the historical .fact remains that  the time of the birth of Christ wan one of universal peace.     The Roman  empire  had then  absorbed nearly all the known world, the Arabs of   the Sahara, the Parthiaus of the Em,  the Scythians and the Northern Germans owing their  freedom   rather to  the undesirable  *"d inaccessible character of  their respective  hinds than to their ability to resist the armies  "f  the Empire.     The  provinces  were  ruled  with ability and without harshness by veteran  soldiers and statesmen.    In the Imperial city,  after a century of civil war and proscription,  men' were resting under the aegis of Augustus,  t:.e first emperor, in peace and tranquility and  comparative contentment.    Literature and art  were flourishing, public  and   private inorals,  while regulated by convention rather than by  principle, had   not begun to decline from   the  natural  dignity of the Romans.     The world  then was  at peace  and at ease and   not unhappy.  How often since has the recurrence of Christmas day seen world-wide peace on the earth ?  Seldom indeed.   JFifty years ago, at the time of  the  first great exhibition  at London,  men  dreamed  and spoke of a time to come wh^n  wars should cease and all peoples should cultivate the arts of peace. But eVen then tlie Russians and Turks were fighting in the Balkans  and two years  later Britain and France were  ��"gaged against Russia.    Since then there has  heen  scarcely  an interval  of peace.    Somewhere on one of the many frontieis of the Empire, the soldiers off Britain are forever under  yms, and the mo^t that philosophers hope for  u> these days ia to  avert a  war between   two  great powers.    It ie certainly no exaggeration  to Bay that peace as a permanent condition is  as far away as ever in the history of the race.  ut the clash of arms is not the only strife  m whjch men engage.    In the last century we  nave developed a new style of warfare, industrial and commercial competition.    In earlier  times with simple modes of living and work-  ing,   one   man's    toil     did    not    necessarily    cause     another's     idleness;     relation  tetween     employer     and     employee    were  simple   and   direct,   the   "soulless   corporation" and   the "walking delegate" were still  in the womb of time.   The last century of progress and improvement, as we  complacently  boast it to be, has  made the civilized   world  almost one huge departmental  workshop in  which each laborer competes against all-other  laborers  and the many  masters fight for supremacy.    We are told this is but a transition  state and that present suffering is  necessary  for future rest and prosperity.   It may be, but  to eyes that watch from   without no signs yet  appear of a rift in the cloud.       -  Sixty years ago an Italian exile in England,  Dante Gabriel Rose Hi. wrote :  "; What of the heart of Hate  That beats in thyoreasr, O Tinie!  Red strife from the furthest prime  And anguish of fierce deb\te ? ,  War that shatters her slain,  Peace that grinds them as grain,  And eyes fixed ever in vain  On the pitiless eye<* of fate."  Is it Pate or human weakness and folly?  Whichever it may be we are forced to the admission at this period of Christian civilization  that we are no nearer the goal of the race, happiness, than ever our fathers were before us, if  indeed, our pursuit of wealth and its command of physical comforts be not eyen now  forcing us further from the goal.  So to us Christmas is no. longer the end of  a period of advance towards our end but a  resting-place on a weary mi rch no whither,  an oasis in a desert of barren effort;  Let us then thankfully accept it as such and  enjoy as fully as we may the rest and respite.  Wecan no more hope that the Christmas  spirit of peace and goodwill will leaven the  thoughts and deeds of the new year than we  can hope that the Sunday spirit of devotion  and charity will affect 1 he business of the following week. But the truest optimist is he  who expects little and is thankful for that little. For one day of peace and goodwill in our  hearts, the Lord make us truly thankful.  Amen.  yt;  f,  lowed the decish e struggle oP Waterloo, the  various S>uth American dependencies of deca-  dent.Spain achieved their independence, the  most conspicuous leader in the successive in  succesi was largely due to his m^gnifi^eni fcr^  eign legion which:was composed  almost, en- **:  tirelyof Britons, veterans  of  the  Peninsula  and Waterloo.     After the restoration of the  Bourbons tothefttirbneoi France, a reaction  against the Revolutionary ideas spread .over  Europe and the  Holy Alliance wak formed for  the mutual support of rulers and the suppress  ion of popular insurrections.    South America  was at the time the only possible field tor ac-f  tion; Spain   wa^ incapable of recoveringa her  lost provinces alone, and  the  Holy   Alliance  took up her cause.    But Britain not only declined to join the Alliance but proclaimed her  strong disapproval of its aims, and the British premier, George. Canning, induced  Presi-'  dent Monroe of the United .Stojt^/o^AmeHc^  to  protest  against  European  coercion of aii  American   people and to announce as 0]^&M  ciple of American policy that any acquisitm^  ^_*^i^|  n  .-��  41  /tl  S  SA:  iSi  m  ���vC. v.  <-,�����  ~��_i'& y>.

This "statement of American pblic|S^|l  endorsed by Great Britain saved^:the liberties  of South America.        ' . >:/  ^  i  Thk blockade of the ports of Venezuela by  British and German cruisers cannot fail to  draw the attention of thj world to tho condition of Latin America. That Britain's fleet is  foremost in this act of what Lord Cranborhe  has aptly called international police duty is  one.of the sad ironies of Time.  'In the years of  European   peace  that  fol-  Thus   Venezuela    owes   chiefly ; to    Great  Britain     the     creation     and    preservation  of     Ber      independence.      It     is      unfortunate  that this foster-parent has to  teach a  sterner  lesson now, but perhaps not unforti^  nate  for  Venezuela.      Her  lesson   must  be  learned and she could  have   no gentler  instructor.   The mixed races ��f  the  Latin  republics have been very  slow   to learn the lessons of self-government ; administrations cannot be defeated but by revolution, and loss of  power means instant flight  or loss of life or  liberty.  This is one of the affairs of a free peopl  which must be left to work out its own s4y^  tion; but civilization demands  that .iu$9jroaV^  strife must not be accompanied by destruction  of neutral's property, nor by the murder of innocent   non-combatants.     The   rights   and  wrongs of the interminable revolutions do not  concern foreign governments, but no State can  ignore the spoliation, imprisonment and murder off its subjects.    The American   Government has a heavy task in  befriending people  who recognize no responsibilities.  Britain and Germany alike disclaim any  intention off doing more than collecting the  debts justly due to their subjects,.but are quite  firm in their purpose of doing this. .Therelo  no doubt that ceaseless civil war has impoverished Venezuela, but the lesson of national  responsibility will be well worth its coat  ,>?i  1�� i  I'.. >(3  1   (  11    if  At    t  ui  11.1    I  **< "**^  . ,1';," rr���^Ww,^.^^,^.  ��      ,.a(tM ,, 1,     -t      ,ArA  H^af^Ir^��^^,J^W^M^^l<^^Hw^^wrt^ta^^l^^r^f^Hw^^)B>^pan^  7v'��t<.i^nl^*.l,t^^Hia^i^^m4pJ.^   ^^il^^i.^.   ,    Hilo    )l,,��^_v.

As yet there is  -><��  I ta^en in  may be that nothing will bedone until a week  before the election. This is not as it should bo.  It is a matter of importance and should monopolize the &itention of every man who has  the welfare of the city at heart. Exclusive of  til�� names already mentioned in connection  *wiih the candidates for aldfl'imen, the names  iof George Bartlett and William Gillette are  spoken of as representatives from the east ward.  Both are good men, and could be depended  upon to assist in giving the city an honest administration. Those who are deeply interested in the welfare of the city should call a  meeting at oftce to select suitable candidates  for office.  "What a wretched life!" would be the general exclamation of those who read of the death  of the miser Hyman at the General hospital,  says the Toronto Qlobe. Those who pass that  judgment forget the hours of joy that he has  tasted as he witnessed the slow but sure growth  of the pelf which he had made his god. When  it bad amounted to anything in the neighborhood of $100,000 it would grow at the jrate of  $4,000 or $5,000 a year by its own earning  power. Just think what rapture that must  have been for a man who would beg the two-  cent stamp he saved the companies by caliin g  for instead of getting them to send notices of  his dividends.  Strikes and depressed busines, low prices  and no profits, reduced output and consumption still more reduced, fiil most-persons with  despair in these days. But it is only in such  times that prevail now that the foundations of  abundant prosperity are laid. ' The strain of  low prices and reduced demand is in all establishments, forcing economy and efficiency.  Now processes are being worked out, small  savings are made, machinery is improved, new  plant if found neceesary, the standard for  workmen has to be raised. Poor hands are  dropped. Morels required of the good ones.  Pay lists are revised. Purchase < are made  more sharply. Much neglected when business  is rushing is now looked after and straightened out, While this is going orr in all establishments in the general world of trade and  manufacture, the remorseless selection of the  fittest is taking place. The weaker establishments are crowded to the wall. Only plants  which can work at the narrowest margin can  be kept going at all. The rest shut down or  go out of business. Factories and mills poorly  placed or provided with inefficient plant are  closed never to be reopened. They will stand  or years melancholy industrial ruins.    These  I jp* ,J,r.  ���>"''  changes and improvements and this rigorous  selection work infinite suffering and loss; but  in time the country get�� down to bed-rock.  Cheap prices can be met with profits. In  spite of hard time^ establishments with the  best plant and managed with rigorous economy, find they are making l)ttle money. At  length prices begin to lift a bit, and the long,  hard preparation produces its effect in a sudden expansion of product, joined to great profits due to the cheapness of production secured  under the pressure of hard times. Above all  and besides all, these are days when everybody is saving, and the savings of everybody  fast create a great mass of capital on whose  flood-tide legitimate business is built. When  a swift-going stream is checked by obstacles  in its natural course, it may be impeded and  dammed, but it is certain to break away and  move onward to the outlet. It is the same  way with trade, and the impediment which it  has received fr^m a variety of causes has long  held it back from its true channels. For some  months it has been gradually gathering force  to sweep the remaining obstacles, and the  time is not far distant when it will be- found  flowing onward in an irresistible current  which has gained volume and power by its  temporary restraint.  It is now whispered in New York that Edna  Wallace Hopper will be among the stars next  )3i301, being her own backer and {manager.  Miss Hopper has already secured some free  lclveitising through her claim for a large slice  )f &3 Dunsmuir estate.  The London Daily News of Dec. 19 says the  re appearance of Hon. Edward Blake on Canadian platforms has passed unnoticed in England, but his few speeches on Irish affairs this  mouth seem to have attracted considerable  attention in the Dominion. There are few  men better qualified to point out the ever-  recurring moral of.t he extension of self-government to Canada than Mr. Blake.  Sonta Glaus is seriously considering the advisability of discarding his sleigh and reindeer  and making his rounds, next year with the  corporation @now��*plough.  Morang & Co. have issued another writ  against Castell Hopkins for $150 paid him  and for $500 damages for an alleged breach of  contract by tbe defendant to write the life of  Sir Charles Tupper.  The Round~Up, printed atj.Pit.cber Creek, is  the latest journalistic candidate for public favor. The new paper in its announcement  says : " It begins its career breaking its own  trail and from the inception avoids the beaten  track of its other and older contemporaries.  Whether this trail will lead to the fields of  glory or the journalistic boneyard the future  alone can tell, but it ia taking all chances  cheerfully and confidently."    The  who are taking chances on the Mound-Up are  Herbert Lake and Roderick Msthesoo, the  former, as editor and the latter as publisher.  The Economist sincerely trusts that success  may crown their efforts.  As a preventative against serious fires,  Providence must not be overlooked for ser-  vicee  Santa Glaus surmounted all the difficulties  of the snowstorm and dealt generously with  the youngsters. That shows the kind of a  steadfast old friend Santa Ciaus is.  Among his plans for the future Mr. George  Alexander, the eminent English actor, who is  by the wayf under contract to play in America from Christmas, 1903, till Easter, 1004, is  again contemplating the revival of '��� Romeo  and Juliet."  Sir Gilbert Parker is engaged with th�� playwright in putting the finishing touches to a  dramatization ot his story, '* When Valmond  Came to Pomiac."  The Economist hae to acknowledge its annual gift of holly from Mr. Joshua Davies, of  Victoria. The garden of Mr. Davies is famous  on the coast, and his liberality in dispensing  the fruits thereof is proverbial.  These are the evenings when th�� ped  can devoutly,pray, 'Lighten our darkness  beseech thee, oh Lord."  we  The town sergeant of Newbridge, near Cur-  ragh Camp, in County Kildare, observed a  soldier kiss a girl at a window. He summoned  the damsel before the town court for " riotous  and indecent behavior," and told the magistrates thai "she did not seem to care anything  abont it, and there were people passing." The  resident magistrate said it was the first time  he had ever heard kissiug so described. The  cape wae dismissed and tho blushing girl withdrew. A    Abqut $50,000 has been collected by the  delegates of the Irish party in their trans-A *  Ian tic tour.  History has not been backwrad in recording  tbe works of great men.

Great  as  is- the debt of his countrymen to  Edison,  it is  perhaps no  greater  than   the  obligation which suffering  humanity owes to  the inventor of the Nelson corporation snow-  plough. This is indeed a service that cannot be  passed over lightly and The Economist would  be derelict in its duty did it  fail   to accord a  just measure of praise to  the inventor of that  fearfully and   wonderfully conceived  product  of the human   brain.    While  all   are agreed  that the inventor of this great labor-saving device is entitled to due and proper  recognition  some doubt prevails as totha head whereon the  crown ofcglory should be placed.    The Economist flitters itself that it can throw  a  little  light on this matter.    Arguing from the premises  that   there  is  only  one  member ofthe  city council capable of conceiving and developing  this triumph of mechanical genui*, by  all the well-authenticated rules of the science  of deduction it  submits that  to  this  person  must be attributed thecredit of inventing and  perfecting the corporation snow-plough.   Need  it l)e said that this man is the brilliant aider-  man for the east ward���John A. Irving. Some  designing ones may attempt to rob Aid. Irving  of the   credit  of this   invention, but strong  proof to the contrary tnun be produced before  this    paper   will   be    convinced    that     the  scheme of the corporation   snow-plough could  have been thought out by a fe*e brainy genius  than   the  east  ward  alderman     The   snow-  plough itself, gives  evidence   of   a   thorough  grasp of the principles of mechanics.    It may  ^ that the inventor got the   idea   for his machine from the structure   from which the late  lamented  Henry   RoBb so recently made   his  sudden    and    mysterious   disappearance.    It  ,f! huilton the plan of the stonebmt, *o much  i>sim! bv eastern farmers of a forme* age.

It aUiy ,,ever be 0f llny use for tjle  l)n'Pose for which it was intended, but it will  ever oe intensely interesting from an architec-  turj|l a��id scientific point of view.    As yet no  aumipt has been made to  patent this inven-  llUM ; hut thin is only a matter of detail, and  Uu'��� i�� no serious danger of infringement on  l,)*' invention in the meantime,,This paper,  Ht'H adhering to the original 'proportion- that  A;d Jonn A.

Balfour for the Government.     These speeches closed the debate, and  at midnight the House adjourned,     ta the  ninety   minutes   between   10J0   and    midnight the  British   House   of Cc^amons   listened to the two able speeches which summed  up the case for and against the Education Bill.  The House divided twice, but the two speeches  and two divisions occupied just one hour and  a half.    Right.bere in Nelson1 the other even-  . ing at the Mock Parliament, Jim Wilkes, who  lays no claim to being an orator spoke for an  hour and a half, just as  long as Messrs, As-*  quith and Balfour combined.    Of course, Mr.  Wilkes may not have said as   much in that  time as did the two British orators.  m  ���^,  o-  -i"vl  The ministers of Philadelphia have declared  war against the Sunday newspaper, and will  devise ways and means' looking to the establishment of a daily which will be issued only  six days a week.

Especially   is this   the  casein   the  novelty   line**, and the class  of  goods purchased for holiday gifts   has been of  the most  expensive character.    This should  disprove the statement frequently made that  the* people generally are  hard pressed for for  money.    In fact  the commercial agencies report   a   gratifying  improvement   throughout  the Province.    From the  East also comes the  report that the holiday trade  has been exceptionally good, ell of which is cheering  intelligence.  \ -r" H  General Phil Sheridan was once riding  down the line, when he saw an Irishman '  mounted ori a mule which was kicking its legs  rather freely.

"TrtfiyitV^  \  kNB of the most remarkable traits in the  feminine organism is the tendency of  women to falj in love with men whose plain*  nes@ of feature is obvious to the pointl>f positive ugliness, and in all ages and countries  this tendency has been strikingly demonstrated. ;  In this connection the name of Mirbeau, one  of the  leading spirits of  the French  Revolution, will be remembered by  the reader, for it  will  remembered   that this  man, whose face  was hideously  pock-marked and whose figure  was  short and unwieldly, exercised a fascina-  tion over the fair sex which was little short of  marvellous.    It .was said, indeed, that no woman could resist this Caliban of politics, whose  only attractiveness   lay in his undoubted gift  of eloquence.    After his death his rooms were  found to contain numberless love-letters from  all sorts  and  conditions of women, many  of  whom   declared   their   passion   in hyperbolic  strain.    And yet  Mirabeau was so ugly   that  his  hideousness passed into a byword   in the  streets of Paris at the period in question.  At the present time there is a lady confined  in a private asylum, suffering from melancholia brought about by an unrequited love  affair. The object of this unfortunate creature's worship is a certain comic singer whose  pretensions to "good looks are anything but  great, and, as a matter of fact, he is considerd  by many people to be the ugliest comedian upon the English stage.  . For 'many months the admiring girl wrote  ardent letters to the player, and, moreover,  was in the habit of awaiting his exit from the  stage-door, when she would press upon him  flowers, jewellry, and other gifts. Eventually  her conduct became so pronounced that the  actor, who is a married man, communicated  with her parents, and the latter took the  young woman away from London forthwith.  However, she pined incessantly after her unsightly hero, and very soon had to be conveyed to the sanatorium where she now remains���a victim of a hopless passion for one  whose uglinc39 is as conspicuous as his talent.  Some years ago a writer encountered a  charming lady who informed him that she  possessed absolute worship for very plain-featured men. There was a certain pathos in  their visages, she averred, which constrained  her deep admiration; and eventually she proved her consistency by. marrying a gentleman  whose countenance went farther to prove the  'Darwinian theory of the relationship of man  to the ape than a thousand discourses on the  eubjtect could go, tbe marriage, however, being  an exceedingly happy union.  A case which recalls the topsy-turrviness of  11 The Midsummer Night's Dream" comes from  Prague, where one of the handsomest girl�� ;n  that city of fair women hae recently espoused  a young merchant of surpassingly ugly facial  characteristic*, and boasting a stature of 5ft.  only.    The maiden had previously refused the  (���� <** ,V.tfi^<-=��*��^d  offers of mure than one handsome and wealthy suitor, and she averred that love had not  dawned in her heart until the moment when  she beheld her dwarf-like and ugly admirer.  The pair are known to their friends by the Bo-  heraianequivalent for "Beauty and the Beast''  ���a description which doubtlessly adhere to  them throughout their married lives.  The fact remains that no man, however hideous, need consider himself exiled from the  love and even worship of women, and this  knowledge ought to console some of us whose  faces are not exactly our fortunes, but rather  the reverse.  Not many years ago a criminal of revolt!i g  appearance was placed in the dock of an  American court to undergo his trial for various huge frauds. It may, perhaps, hardly  be credited, but it is neverthless a fact, that  this individual was shown, in the course of  the evidence, to have fascinated no fewer than  sevm women, four of whom were ladies of  good family and education.  Even when his foul misdeeds became known  to them these seven women continued to write  impassioned letters to the object of their affection , nor did the man's hopeless ugliness  seem to affect their worship any more than  his crimes had served to do. He was sentenced to a long term of imprisonment, during  which time he received various -vhuts from the  foolish females, who ought certainly to have  transferred their devotion to some worthier, if  not handsomer, fellow creature"  Pathetic  enough   was the  ca-e of a young  shop-assistant who fell in love with a male employee in the  same  establishment, a  man of  exceedingly   plain   countenance.    Tne   laiier,  who was already engaged io be married, naturally  repelled the girl's advance?, whereupon  she drowned   herself in   the   adjacent  canal,  lea vi ng a note where!n she actual ly sta ted that  it wan his undoubted ugliness which had fir*t  led her to think about him       Such  behavior  seems almost  inconceivable, and can   only be  attributed "to; the extraordinary   fascination  which ugly men have exercised from time immemorial over the hearts of the other sex.  In this connection it may be interesting to  recall a society formed some years ago in an  American city by a handful of eccentric young  ladies. The members of this society solemnly  pledged themselves to marry none but the ugliest of male humanity, on the ground lhat  plain-featured men invariably made excellent  husbands, However, this queer Fociety enjoyed but a brief span of life, and was soon dissolved, though several of the former members  adhered to their resolution by espousing very  ill-favored gentlemen.  Marshall P, Wilder tells of a certain Irishman, famed for hard drinking, who was asked  why he did not take just one drink each day  and let it go at that. "Shure," said Pat  "what good would wan be ? A bird can't fly  with wan win^."  Charles James Fox was, on one cccasion, a  guest at a dinner party at Horace Walpole's,  where, at the last moment, Charles Selwyn'  the readiest of wits, whose strange weakness,'  was attending executions, strolled in. "George  looks as cheerful as though he had just come  from an execution," remarked Horace Wal-  pole, and Fox said, smilingly : "A namesake  of mine was to be hanged at Tyburn to-day.  I suppose you were in at the death, Selwyn V  'N-., my friend," said Selwyn, promptly, "i  make a point of never frequenting rehearsals.'1  A college professor, feeling indisposed, consulted his physician, a German, very scientific  and acknowledged as one of the leading men  in his line. The doctor advised tbe professor  to work les** at the dek, exercise more outdoors, and take beer an a tonic, something the  professor Jhad never cared for. The doctor  met his patient a few days later as he was  leaving the college, and stopped to inquire-  how he was feeling. * -  " Ah.tut the same," replied the professor.  *��� Did you take beer as I directed ?" in-  quin d tbe physician.  ���* Ye*," replied the professor ; " I took it a  few times, but it became so nauseous that 1  had to discontinue it."  "How much did you take Vs:  " Why, I bought a whole bottle, and took a  spoonful before each meal," answered tbe professor.

Ever since his resignation anecdotes of Lord  Salisbury have been printed in the English  press. Among the most striking appreciations is the following, on his constitutional  aversion tp society':'-" He has the detachment  of a hermit. He has attended the House of  Lords many hundreds of times, but he knows  few of the members, outside his own family,  by sight. He once startled the political  world by admitting, in an aside, that he had  never set eyes on Mr. Parnell. Everyone  knows how, on receiving a gracious salute  from Walter Long, one of his own ministers,  he asked a neighbor : ��� Who is that T It may  be doubted, indeed, whether he knew by sight  the whole of the enormous cabinet with which  he surrounded himself. He disliked new  faces, and. shrank from introductions. The  story goes that when he found himself once  travelling to Hatfield in the same carriage  with Ouida, and a common friend suggested  an introduction, Lord Salisbury shrank back  into his comer, and hid himself behind a  newspaper."  raw  iA'  , "-'A  ""-H.  ������M��IH>aR.il.llMWMaiMIMi��W�� ��*>*.**.t^|M*����1��'�� *%pi*tfl>��>���''��V"-1��*"��*'  \��>   >v ?���'"' Am.* ' ''  A "<i  a  �� li       0.  ��> ^3i5<^WBH^BB4BUM��cl41^liii  "��MffiUjm*-wu-i*w^��i��(A  KwTO^"'*l5i 9   li^Ote^.  e^^^sx^^&iv^fW, htinLft  "��C?=W=M^r-4S  TH�� NELSON E  f^'ll.  -M  ]  Injury t�� <2,����t&��  Sfnch injury *s often don�� to teeth tqr  esing improper tooth powder.
