CALIFORNIA, THE AAMiRICAN OALILEE. M KniTKKKANKAN waters lave the. land where the Savior of the world was born. The air is HO ft, there, the beautiful weather of the semi-tropics. You who dwell this Christmas-tide where the wind howls about the gables and chimneys; where the sleet and snow <irlvo bf.-forr; the galo Hko gleeful demons —would you like to spend your life in the American equivalent, for the country of the Havlor's birth? Today Chrlflf.'H birthday Is bolng celebrated In Southern California amid surroundings Identical with the place of Nativity, The cypress trees lino the roadways of Southern California; (he olive groves bend beneath the burden of their fruiting. Dates and figs and pomegranates are ripening even as these frill's camo to maturity along the shores of the blue inland sea of the East, and among the humble fishing villages of the Galilean coast. For Southern California and. the Holy f^aiul are practically In the same latti- mdo—thirty-three degrees north of the equator. In the Southern California groves the Jaffa orange and the Mediterranean Sweet, grow to better maturity than In their distant home. The friiltn which figure In the marvelous romances of the Bible, surrounding 'he life of Jesus Christ, aro thriving on this far-Western American coast. Today, In the homes of the American East, the rich may only enjoy the luxuries which the poor of California may have for the gathering. While you of the Eastern state's are gathered about your Christmas board, laden as It Is with all the traditional Christmas dainties, the Southern California family Is enjoying the luscious fruits and products of the garden. Strawberries and small fruits appear on the Christmas board. The garden yields to the Callfornian for Christmas more edible tilings than the Easterner can enjoy at any season, even af (he high noon of summer. Th'v great fanes of flod In Southern California, where Christ's Naiivlty Is being celebrated It) common with the Christian world, are gorgeous with Hie dot fif (lowers--the scarlet poln.settii, the geranium, mounds of white ,'ind red roses; and along every walk and drive, juid in every garden and house- jilot, the flowers rentier their thanks If) the. Savior of the World, bringing through their superb beauty In Ihls land of perpetual verdure, the lesson of ibo eternal life for which the Messiah lived and died. Almost, does If seem !.he result of perfunctory habit for the churches to bo docked with flowers n< thla country, for outside the door and along the sun-kissed avenues the (lowers praise Him, singing In blended color Hie paean of Cloria in Kxcolsls. YOH, yon must. m:>l<n your homo in (ho land that so syrnboll/.es evorv chapter of Ihe Redeemer's life--come and spend Chi!stmas in a hummock honoaih Ihe palms -those same palms that wore laid In His path on thai i.ilumphanl day of Ills entrance Into Jerusalem.

Don't will I to spend your old nw the world for the ones who have growi wisdom of coming when (ho batik; of llff ills tfi which flesh is heir may be escaped upon you.

ON THE HAKliNO OF SAINTS. R OMANCE, like good wine, becomes bettor as the years pass lOvents in history ripen into romance as the tales are handed dowi through the centuries. Figures which rise above the great mas^ in I.In; past, acquire a halo, and riiou of great achievement become'worshipful nnd supernatural beings. The original Saint Nicholas! was, according !( ancient chronicles, ,A man who Kavo^^jJht^(:si j rvliuujo()r,n{)t at any ospjicla' season, but ill I ho (lino when want elwmvi{pKhriiffljra| H*® wore not foil tin continuous strides of education In Iho countrWn of^lvlllxatlon, many jmon such an Washington, Lincoln, Shakespeare- and Wagner would bo worshiped ill a shrine among saints. The sanctified ones of other flays wore thunV' ()1 ' - i-hippod alter the olapso of lime. As reason becomes trained If) act.iiiiHiies ignorant, worship ceases, and Iho man of history stands clear on Iho podostai of his achievement and noi within a veil of superstitious adoration. The only man of history who lias retained Iho worship of all classes, ignorant and educated alike, is./onunChrist, of thocityof David. Thermit).something significant In Ibis. Socrates of AUtons uttered many of the truths found IP Christ's tcitohlngM, and ulfcrod llu-m as woll. Truths of duty ?'jid honor, of ordinary riglit.-liviii''', of eltl/.onship and justice. Ills philosophy'has colored Iho thought, of Iho generation:-! sine'- his (imo. Kmorson sal on Iho forms of Iho philosophical school of I'lalo. Socrates was put If) doiitb for his beliefs, as wiis Christ. Mill Iho marvelous power of Iho Na/.areno over men came from something more lusting than Iho calculations of Iho brain. Ho reached (ho hearts of men. Without divinity his teachings would not have revolutionized the world. The world is long In grasping tho sigulticanoo of his teachings. Mill oaoh century added to history brings us nearer tho Christ idea of a world. I'oaeo on earth Is If) become a fact. And'Christ is as much Iho Messiah today us ho was when on Ihe shores of Galileo. Covina Is not a good town for Iho cheap traveling show. II is too simple a matter to lake Iho car for l.o.-s Angeles, whor<> tho groatosl In hlslnmios, tho most noted in oratorio and opera may bo hoard through Iho season. Longfellow says that "Homo-keeping Hearts Aro Happiest." It could not bo more true in any other eommunii.v than Ihis one in tho Upper San Gabriel Valley, as a glance at tho Illustrations in II.IH special number will testify. PLEASANT PARTY Ono of the merriest scenes of the jj^asonW.ook place, on jtoyige street, on Tuesday^ afternoon, Wffen Elsie R. Ashor entertainod fifteen of her little friends at a Christmas parly.

Wo have received the following lot tor from our old friend and subscriber, K. C}. Zug, who has been on a visit of seven months In the Eastern states. "Glondora, Cal., Dec. 21, 1908. "This (y, to Inform our many friends that we have arrived home from our eastern trip, getting here last Saturday morning. On May 22 of this year we left for Des Molnes, Iowa, and spent nine days In that city, going from there to Pennsylvania, where we visited with relatives. It has been since 1874 since we were In Pennsylvania, We enjoyed the trip very much, I visiting twenty-two cities and towns. We attended twenty-eight church services, three love feasts and five funerals. About half of the preaching service was In the German 1 language, which reminded me very much of the olden days, over thirty years ago, for at. that, time nearly all the preaching was In German. Nearly all preachers were Gorman preachers in the Brethren church In those days. Our princi- •pal visiting was done In I^aneastor and Franklin counties. I mot my brother In Chamborsborg the nineteenth of last I July. It had been 0 I years since I had seen him, and we had a delightful time, i "On November 13 wo loft. Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, for Girard, Illinois. Coming through Indiana it snowed and by the time wo reached Girard It was very cold. We had four inches of snow while wo were there and I froze my oars. Wo visited with my wife's sister, Mrs. Kate Frey, and her brothers, Henry K., Won K. Young and others. We had a very good timo | while visiting in those states. Mut wo j missed Iho good roads of sunny Cali| fornia, and prefer our own state to any stale in Iho union. "Yours truly, "10. G. Zi:O."
