TO OIR READERS.

be willing for us to omit the Christ

every one of you a merry Christmas
and a happy New Year, we will be

A MAN’S REAL MEASURE
The place to take the true meas
use of a man is not in the market
place or in the amen corner, nor
the cornfield, hut by his fireside-
There lie lays aside bis mask and
you may learn whether he is an imp
or an angel, cur or king, hero or
humbug. I care not what the
world says of him —whether it
crowns him boss or oelts him with
bad eggs. I care not a copper what
his reputation or religion may be.
If his babies dread bis home-com
ing and his better half swallows her
heart every time she has to ask him
for a five-dollar bill, be is a fraud
of the first water, even though he
prays night and morning until he
is black in the face ami bowls hal
elujah until be shakes the eternal
hills. But if his children rush to
the front door to meet him and
love’s sunshine illuminates the face
of his wife every time she hears his
footfall, you can take it for granted
that he is pure, for his home is a
heaven—and the humburg never
gets that near the great white throne
of God. He may he a rank atheist
and red-dag anarchist, a Mormon
and a mugwump, he may buy votes
in blocks of live, and bet on the
election; he may deal ’em from the
bottom of the deck and drink beer
until he can’t tell a silver dollar
from a circular saw, and still be an
infinitely batter nun than the cow
ardly humbug who is all suavity in
society but who makes home a hell,
who vents upon the helpless heads
of bis wife and children an ill na
ture he would inHict on his fellow
men hut dares not. 1 can forgive
much in the fellow mortal who
would rather make men swear than
women weep; who would rather
h.ave the hate of the whole world
than the contempt of his wife; who
would rather call anger to the ('yes
of a king, than tear to the face of a
child. —W. C> Braun.
4 GOOD SHOW.
“A Knight for a Day' was all to
the good as a show, and the small
audience which greeted its produc
tion last night at The Lyric was
generous in its applause. From
the rise to the fall of the curtain
the interest was intense. The girls
were pretty, the jokes good and the
acting splendid. The singing of
the leading lady and chorus was
fine, and the audience was demon
strative in its applause.
We are sorry to learn that the
management lost money on this
production. This show is out of
Winder’s class, and unless better
patronage is given the management
of this playhouse such shows as “A
Knight for a Dav” will have to
pass Winder by.
The management is anxious to
give Winder the best class of shows
hut the present patronage don't
justify a show of the class of the
one last night.

Watson is grand, gloomy and pecu

“GO THOL AND SIN NO MORE.”
“Life is full of strange inconisten
eies. For twenty centuries the
whole of Christendom has honored
Mary Magdalene,’’ says the At
lanta Georgian. “The great Italian
masters have limned her in immor
tal colors upon canvas. The poets
huVe lauded her in sacred song.
Ihe memory of her gratitude is
still an abiding incenst —not one
less fragrant than the spikenard
with which she anointed the Master’s
feet; and to the weak and wayward
of In r sex the very name of this
penitent woman of the streets of j
Palestine has been a covenant of :
promisi and a star of hope.
But the world today shrinks in
horror for the frail daughter of Eve
who is branded with the scarlet let
“No chance of earning an honest
livelihood is offered to the fallen
women. The doors of society art*
closed against, her. The denuncia
tions of religion sire heaped upon
her. In the most cruel sense of the
word she is an abandoned outcast;
and from the paradise of purity
which she forsakes in a moment of
ternpatation, she is forever barred
by the flaming sword of an austere
“Seventy times seven may be the
number of man’s repeated transgres
sions of the code of moral cleanli
ness and each separate time his
sins are forgiven.
“Yet, on the other hand, let a
woman err but once and she is
forced by the stern edicts of society
to make her place of abode among
the lepers. No matter how many
tears she may shed —no matter how
many prayers she may offer —no
matter how fervently she may yearn
to treat the paths of virtue —the
fates are against her. The world is
an unpitying judge. Like the stern
old Roman magistrate, it knows
nothing but law —when it comes to
dealing with the woman who fails.
The man may go scot free. The
litlle episode in which he figured is
forgotten. The little peccadillo to
which lie stooped is condoned.
But the woman must be held with
out ransom. For her there is no
loop-hole of escapi —no hostage —
and, save in the memory of what is
lost toiler forever, no Home, Sweet

melodrama of this tragic kink, it is

religion of the meek and lowly Xaza
