THE LENOX TIME TABLE, LENOX. IOWA CURRENT COMMENT by Robert Strong CHRISTMAS Throughout the Christian world Christmas is celebrated in commemoration of the birth of Jesus Christ, although the day or even the year of that event is not definitely known. Observance of Christmas was first officially set for December 25 by Pope Julius, in the fourth century, probably because certain pagan festivities were held at that time of the year. Even to this day many of the customs which surrounded the Christmas season may be traced to pagan origins. This may be accounted for by the fact that early missionaries did not disturb the harmless native customs of their converts to Christianity, but gradually merged them with Christian observances. Thus the giving of gifts, the decoration of holly and mistletoe, the feasting and other features of Christmas celebration are of very ancient origin. Christmas, therefore, may be said to have a double significance—one religious, the other social—the latter perpetuating the customs of many peoples. It is the world's most widely observed holiday, and its social observance is by no means mon- fined to adherents of Christianity. No day is so generally pervaded with the spirit of "peace on earth, good will toward men." While there has long been a tendency to commercialize the Christmas season, it is marked by much genuine charity and kindness, and the cheery greeting "Merry Christmas" is usually a sincere expression of friendliness and good wishes. SENATOR'S EXPENSES Considerable comment has been caused by the publication in the New York Tunes of some items in the expense account of the United States Senate, including $44,147 for stationery, $64,000 for restaurant meals, $8,000 for barber bills and $6,350 for mineral waters. Minor items include 500 aspirin tablets, three pounds of bicarbonate of soda, five gallons of witch hazel and small amounts of bromoseltzer, soda mint tablets and medicated alcohol. While the amount involved in all these senatorial perquisites is not sufficient to become a matter of national concern, it looks as if bills for purely personal expenses might well be paid by the Senators themselvr es. The example of such petty sponging is not inspiring. Referring to the 500 aspirin tablets consumed by the solons the Tunes thinks that these "do not represent the total amount of headache which the Senate has cost the country."

REVERE Paul Revere, the 200th anniversary of whose birth occurred this year, is known to fam< chiefly because of his histori ride from Boston to arouse the "minute men" on the night o April 18, 1775, before the en gagement with the British a Lexington and Concord). But aside from this notable exploit, j he was an uncommonly active and versatile citizen. He had taken part in the Boston Tea Party, and became a lieutenant-colonel during the Revolution, after serving as a liutenant of artillery in the Crown Point expedition of 1756, during the French and Indian War. In civil life he displayed a variety of talents, which a recent biographer thinks entitles him to be known as America's first "jack of all trades." He was a goldsmith, a copper roller, a dentist, an engraver, a powder manufacturer, a maker of picture frames, a hardware merchant and, deplorable as it may seem, a seller of hard liquor. Documents recently made public by his great-grandson include bills of lading showing that Paul Revere sold a consignment of rum at 80 cents a gallon, also gin at a proportionately low flgtore. This same great-grandson now heads" a copper business founded by his distinguished ancestor, which still bears the name of Revere in Boston. But Revere's chief pride seems to have been in his dental skill and he once sent a circular to prospective clients, which would would be considered highly unethical today, in which among other things he said, referring to human teeth: "He fixes them in such a manner that they are not only an ornament, but of real use in speaking and eating," Longfellow immortalized Paul Revere's ride, but he didn't tell the whole story. HENRY GRADY'S ADVICE Henry W. Grady, the great Southern editor and orator, died 45 years ago, but the advice he gave to the farmers of his native Georgia and the South many years ago, is as sound today as it was when it was uttered. On particular gem of his which has been often republish ed is of particular significance just now. It applies equally to North or South, provided the principal money crop of any particular section be substituted for "cotton", where it occurs in the original. Grady said: "When every farmer in the South shall eat bread from his own fields and meat from his own pastures, and disturbed by no creditor and enslaved by no debt, shall sit among his teeming gardens and orchards and vineyards and dairies and barnyards, pitching his crops in his own wisdom and growing them in Independence, making cotton his clean surplus and selling it in his own tune and in his phosen market and not at a master's bidding — getting his pay in cash and not in a re ceipted mortgage that discharges his debt taut does not restore his freedom — then shall be breaking the fullness of our day." by the grab bag method.
