SID HJSNUY TELEPHONE 821 A Hymn Of Pence Let the chimes of God ring round the world, 'Hie flag of Truth is all unfurl'd, The throb that beats through all of life Is heard 'mid tumult and 'mid .strife, The chord that binds each soul to all, In unison with Love'.s great call, The benison of right will bring, And all the world in tune shall sing In harmony willi God's great plnn, Of Peace on Earth, Good Will to Man. Let earth's cathedrals now resound The mighty deep find swelling sound, Let greed and war and hate and fear Be lost forever in the. clear, lieverbating .song of Love, The anthem of our God above. —Selected. Of all the old festivals, however, that of Christmas awakens the strongest and most hearlfelt associations. There is a lone of solemn and sacred feeling that blends with our joy, and lift:; the spirit to a state of hallowed and elevated enjoyment. It is a beautiful arrangement, also, derived from days of yore, that this festival, which commemorates the announcement of the religion of peace and love, luis been made the season for gathering together of family connections, and drawing closer figtiiti (hose bonds of kindred hearts, which the cares and pleasures and sorrows of the world are continually opcr.'iling to ra.st loose; of calling back live children of a family who have launched forth in life and wandered widely asunder, once mure to assemble about the paternal hearth, that rallying place of the affections, there to grow young and loving among the endearing mementos of childhood.

Bride- Clirlsdan Consecration Text: PhlHnplnns 1:12-26 A lesson on Christian consecration comes, most appropriately, on the day after Christmas, when we have been celebrating God's gift to the world in Jesus Christ. Wa do not learn the meaning of Christmas or its lesson until our own hearts have been opened in the spirit of giving, Though we have hot the words recorded in the direct sayings of Jesus, Paul's report of the words of Jesus, "It is more blessed to give than to receive," expresses the very! heart of the Christ life and Hie Christ' message. Our lesson sets before Us the truest and most real form of giving, the gift of a man's life in consecration to the gospel, nnd in loyalty to Christ. Paul was so sincere about the spreading of the gospel that he could rejoice even in his own imprisonment and persecution, knowing that the word of God was being spread abroad. He realized also that his own fortitude under tribulation was an in- "D'you know, Mrs. 'Arris, I some- limes wonder if me 'usband's grown tired of me." "Whatever makes you say that, Mrs. 'Iggs?" "Well, 'e ain't been 'ome for seven years." Quite AH Right "Sir, I desire to be excused from jury duty," "Why?" asked the judge. "Because I can only hear with one ear." . .' • "Oh, ..you'll do," replied the judge. 'Wa hear only one side of a case at a time." . The glamorous and alluring Gail Patrick exercises her charms on Adolphe Menjou and creates romantic complications and barbed repartee with Ginger Rogers, another lure for Menjou, in "Stage Door" the dramatic hit adapted from the Broadway success.

"Stage Door" will show Sunday, Monday and Tuesday at the Saenger. that for him to live was Christ, that his whole being was devoted to his Master. This loyalty and devotion had so dominated Paul's every thought, word and action that he had no fear of anything in life, and no fear of death. He lived in a world of spiritual realities that death could not destroy. He had the profound faith that even in death he would gain through a closer relationship to his Lord. It should be remembered in this lesson that Paul was writing to Christians who were in the midst of discouragement and persecution, in a city where he himself had been cast into prison. It was in this city of Philippi, in his missionary journey to Europe, that Paul had been arrested and thrown into the inner prison with his feet fast in the stocks, and it was here that the prison doors had been opened and the jailer had thrown himself at the feet of Paul, inquiring, "Sir, what must I do to be saved?" We need to read this lesson of Paul in the light of the places and backgrounds and experiences of his missionary journeys. These Philippians understood perfectly well what he meant when ho spo"ke of the things that had happened to him, making for the progress of the gospel. In reading all Paul's Epistles, we should consider carefully the city and the particular Christians to whom they were addressed. A good plan is to read the Book of the Acts at the same time as the Epistles, tracing Paul's missionary journeys and his experiences in the founding of the churches to which he later addressed his letters.
