The Raven Revised
Once upon a morning foggy,while I
loitered, grouched and groggy,
Over biscuits that were soggy and
an egg that was a bore.
While 1 dawdled, almost dreaming,
and my coffee ceased from
Suddenly there came a screaming—
screaming never heard before,
“ ’Tis some suffragette.” I mut
tered, ‘‘screaming at my outer
Just a noise and nothing more.’

What Christmas Means.
Christmas means hope and its
realization. The child grows eagerly
expectant as the time approaches
for the visit of Santa Claus. While
this fiction remains unquestioned,
the imagination opens new and
wider words, and ideals become so
much a part of the mind that the
prosaic and commonnlace can never
reach them. Until the youth
reaches manhood and’independence,
Christmas is the happiest (lay of the
year. Its gifts and hearty good
cheer impress family affection,
parental thoughtfulness and brother
ly love. The dullest and most
irresponsive of father and mother
are uplifted to a vision of higher
life by' the interchanges of souvenirs
and the merry meeting with child
ren and grandchildren at the table
and fireside. Few can escape and
all enjoy the meaning of the festival,
the lessons it conveys and the in
spiration it gives,and we enter upon
a brighter future and a fuller ap
preciation of the beneficence of the
practice of faith, hope and charity.
The loved ones who have crossed to
the other side, the loved near ar.d
far who are still with us the old
homestead with its precious memo
ries, the old church whose sacred
associations tie together ci.ildhood,
maturity and age, love, marriage
and death; the school house where
the beginnings of education were so
paintful, and the ever-increasing
pleasures of the pursuit of learning
through the high schools academy
and college are recalled and recited,
and there is exquisite delight in
these oft-told tails, and new ex
periences enliven this blessed an
niversary'. Senator Depew in
.John Smith —John Smith —is not
very high sounding; it does not
suggest aristocracy; it is not the
name of any hero in the die-away
novels; and yet it is good, strong
and honest. Transferred to other
languages, it seems to climb the
ladder of fame. Thus, in Latin,
it is Johannes Smithus; the Italian
smoothes it off into Giovanni
Smithi; the Spaniard renders it
Juan Smithus; the Dutchman
adopts it as Hans Schmidt; the
French flatten it out into Jean
Sineet, and the Russian sneezes and
barks Jonloff Sinittowski. When
John Smith gets into the tea trade
in Canton he becomes .Jovan Schirn
mit; if he clambers about Mount
Hecia, the Icelanders say he is
Jahne Smithson; if he trades
among the Tuscaroras he becomes
Ton Bu Smittia; in Poland ho is
known so; Ivan Sehmittiweiski, and
should ho wander among the Welsh
mountains they talk of John Shmid;
when ho goes into Mexico he is
liooked as Jntli F’Smitti; ,if of
classic turn he turns to 'lon Srnik

Father Time, with his scythe, lias
been reaping in our midst and took
to his mansion one of the true,
trusted and tried servants.
It may seem hard and yJmost
beyond endurance to part with
those we have looked upon as a
guide and council in any trouble.
Mother is gone. How sweet is
the name. Then when coupled
with this Christian we have a com
pound word with a thousand fold
of sweetness. Let this he taken
from us, we, of course, are sorely
troubled, but we should not be, for
her’s is a great gain—taken from
this world of sin, sorrow and
trouble and placed in a lovely man
sion where Jesus is and all the re
deemed of earth —given a crown
and many stars shining from it,
I’ve no doubt.
