Arthur Brisbane NlNETEfeN HUNDRED AND TWENTY-FIVE YEARS AGO a happy young mother strove to make her baby comfortable at Bethlehem. She had wandered the streets, in her extremity, and at last, adapting her- tflf as best she might to hard condi- tions, took refuge in a primitive sta- ble. The aureole of happiness that shone around that sacred mother's head as she looked upon her child shines above the heads of millions of mothers all over the world today. They are safer, their children more kindly treated, and the world is infinitely better, thanks to the baby whose birthday the world cele- brates today. To all the world's people it is a cheerful Christmas. The war fades iiilo ti'e distance, and nations are struggling back to peace and woik. In the most fortunate of all t-o-'i'Uies, as in Europe, some are cheerful than others. PRICE THREE CENT!
