Many times had the writer read 1jhe carol, but under the conditions just related the beautiful tale hid ft Mwer meaning than had ever before been experienced, "When 1 came into that -home at the Christmas season long since past," he said, "I could sense the real and true spirit of ttii occasion, and when I was told that the reading of this tale had been a custom of .years I felt I knew the well spring in which the spirit had its growth. I have now adopted the custom in my own family, with a few changes. Tat story is, of ooune, quite long for one reading, so we hare developed tilt plan of beginning the reading a week before the great day, reading part each night Then when Christmas eve comes I hare found it additionally valuable in fostering tha Chriitmu npirit to have read aloud the wonderful, beautiful story of tiit natirity frdm the second chapter of St. Luke: We them complete the Carol, and every one is then truly ready forth* gterioiu dawning of the morrow." » LLOYD GEORGE CALLS ON AMERICA TO ANSWER THE CALL DESTINY IS MAKING FROM OUR READERS J Baeooonv, Wild Bo«r», Chameleons.
