'Tis hard to tell when day Is done, For day and night flow into one* So heaven shines downward all the while, And lights us with Its constant smile; But once a year It draws more near; Wide open stands the shining door, With gleams of light unseen oeforo; And all across flash glimpses fleet Of upper joys and radiant feet. 'Tis ever so since love broke through, And"down the widening spaces flew;— That blessed year Our Lord came near:— For him swung back the starry bound; Deepened far up the great profound; All heaven swept outward at his birth, And naught was narrow but the earth. Now evermore ho stands and waits Some lifting of these lower gates; But once a year He Walts more near;— Shall the blest door be thrown so wide, And only wo tho entrance hide? Unbar all hearts; make room within. And.let the'holy Christmas in! —Selected. THE WONDERFUJ^. No argument against the sun will drive it from the sky. No mole-eyed- skepticism, dazzled by its brightness, can tur'n away the shining it refuses to look upon. And they who long after God will be ever turning their eyes thitherward, and either with reason or, without reason, or, if need be, against .manifold impediment? of reason, will see and believe. ; * ~* * ••* This one perfect character has come into our world, and'lived in it, filling' all the molds of action, all the terms of duty and love, with his own divine manners, works and charities. All the conditions of our life are raised thus, by ttie meaning he has shown in them, and the grace he has put upon ttfejh. The world "itself is changed;, and,!is 'no 'more the flame that it wa$; it hag never been the same since Jesus •left Jt- The air is charged with heavenly odors, and a kind of celestial consciousness, a sense of other worlds, is waited on us in its breath. Let th'e dark ages come, let society roll backward, and churches, perish in wh$e regions of'the earth', lejfinfldelity deny ,* and, what is worse, let spurious piety dishonor, We, 'truth; -still /there is* a, something here that was "not,- and. a omething that,Jias-iaiQiortality in it. *$tili!:tfur'cbhfldep'Qe remains unshak- ,;e,tf, tB'at.Christ-and his- all-quickening Jijje 'are in, the world, as fixed elements ;4tid$ili: Jbe,>to -the end-'of time; for 'Christianity is not so much the advent Of a better. doctrine as'of. a" perfect character. .And, how can.' a perfect Character, once entered into life''and history be^ separated and finally "ex 1 - pelled? It-were .easier to untwist all the beams of light in 'the sky, '-separating and expunging, one of the colors, than to get • ttie character of. Jesus, .which is ,the real gospel, out" of the Vforld., Look ye hither, meantime, all ye blinded and fallen of mankind, a better nature is among you, a 'pure heart, out of some pure world, is come into your prison, and walks it with you, <P6,yQu require of" us to show who he. is, T and definitely to expound bis person?

They are the salt of the earth and notwithstanding occasional misdirected zeal or exceptional, cases of wickedness in their ranks they and their churches perform an immense service for humanity. It is a great pity though that we have so many churches. If the number could be cut down something like half and the congregations consolidated, the sup- sBOrt would not be so burdensome on tne members and the ministers could receive a better support as they de- serve.—Times-Eepublican. *, ALGONA'S LOUD HOWL, i Putting in telephones to connect .towns is now all the talk, although no ,pianison foot to connect Biirt with the county seat. Should this be done, 'however, Algona would set up just as ,lpnd a howl for that early train to be ;put back on.—Burt Monitor. FIFTY-TWO DIVIDENDS. As a general thing Investors are pleased to receive only two dividends a year, and if they are paid with regularity are fully satisfied. When one, however, can recive fifty-two dividends in a year upon an in- vestment'of only three dollars, the matter deserves very serious attention.
