Occasionally open the plastic and add more water and be sure to keep it away from the heat of a radiator. Plant the tree outdoors the weekend after Christmas. Dig a hole the same depth as the burlap ball and a foot wider. Place the tree erect, leaving the burlap around the ball. Fill the hole with loam and give the tree a deep watering. Finally, spread a mulch over the root area. If the tree has been planted at a windy corner of the house, erect a protecting screen to mute harsh winter winds. Why do the bells for Christmas ring? Why do little children sing? Once a lovely, shining Star, Seen by shepherds from afar, Gently moved until its light Made a manger-cradle bright. There a darling Baby lay, Pillowed soft upon the hay. And His mother sang and smiled, "This is Christ, the holy Child.' So the bells for Christmas ring So the little children sing. ONE SOLITARY LIFE Here Was a Young Man who was born in an obscure village, the child of a peasant woman. He grew up in another village. He worked in a carpenter shop until he was thirty, and then for three years he was an itinerant preacher. He never wrote a book. He never held an office. He never owned a home. He never had a family. He never went to college. He never put his foot inside a city. He never traveled two hundred miles from the place where he was born, 'He never did any of the things that usually accompany greatness. He had no credentials but himself. While he was still a young man, the tide of public opinion .turned against him. His friends ran away. He was turned over to his enemies. He went through the mockery of a trial. He was nailed to a cross between two thieves, While he was dying, his executioners gambled for the only piece of property he had on earth and that was his coat. When he was dead, he was laid in a borrowed grave through the pity of a friend. Nineteen wide centuries have come and gone, and today he is the central figure of the human race and the leader of the column of progress. I am far within the mark when I say that all the arm ies that ever marched, and all the navies that were ever built, and all the parliaments that ever sat. and all the kings that ever reigned, put together, have not affected the life of a man upon his earth as has that One Solitary Life. — Anony mous. HOGMANAY On Hogmanay, the last day of every year, Scotch Highlanders used to form a procession behind a man attired in a cow's hide who would visit each house in the vill age and bless it with these words, "May God bless this house and all that belongs to it, cattle, stones, and timber. In plenty of meat, of bed and body clothes and health of men may it abound." CURISMAS SONG MERRY CHRISTMAS TO ALL!
