E & W MARKET 715 North Federal Sets Limit on Amount of Sugar Sales Washington, (IP) —Secretary of Agriculture Brannan Thursday set at 7,250,000 tons the amount of sugar which producers may sell in the United States market in 1949 This compares with a 19'1S ~ar~ ketmg quota of 7,200,000 tons.

Phone 4561-W or 4916-W By Phillips Brooks The earth has grown old with its burden of care, But at- Christmas it always is young, The heart of the jewel burns lustrous and fair, And its soul full of music bursts forth on the air, When the song of the angels is sung. It is coming, Old Earth, it is coming to-night! On the snowflakes which cover thy sod The feet of the Christ-child fall gentle and white, And the voice of the Christ-child tells out with delight That mankind are the children of God. The feet of the humblest may walk in the field Where the feet of the Holiest trod, This, then, is the marvel to mortals revealed When the silvery trumpets of Christmas have pealed, That mankind are the children of God.
