It goes right to the heart and fully repays any act of kindness and any . deed which brings delight. The smile of a happy child Is the most human expression of gradltude. With all that it means who is there who will deny any little one this, not only In the pleasure, it indicates but In the pleasure it brings to the author. The Herald Christmas Cheer Fund afforda the means to bring the smile to the face of the Child, to wreathe the faces of the little ones with that happiness of innocence. It helps to realize all those happy dreams wblch the youngsters indulge in at Christmas time, and which we ourselves indulged in at the time we were also young. No one but a child thoroughly enjoys the joys of Christmas. To the children Santa Claus is a reality. He is their dream man and none but a child can realize the disappointment should he fail to arrive as he is so fondly expected to. There are homes in which the coming of Christmas sometimes ' brings distress, in that the parents are not able to satisfy the Christmas dreams of their little one|. It la here where the Robin Gbo^feliows come {n; maHIng thenhselves In spirit and In effect' the expected Santa Claua. ' Ae much as we value the joy and appreciate the good will whl'cl^ goes with Christmastide, we should make ourselves miasion-ers to bring and to diffuse this Christmas spirit. The Christmas Cheer Fund is a campaign for diffusing joy and happineaa. As we appreciate this the Fund will grow, and In the measure we contribute to it we shall have the pleaaure and satisfaction that we at leaat have been Instrumental in bringing the cmile to the face of the happy child, and Christmas comfort to many a home. It .jugurs well for the fund that the first man to aubscribe last -year is also the first this year. Last year the fund hit a high raaclt. Alex Harron, well known lumber company manager and candidate for school trustee, dropped Into the Herald office this morning and said he wanted to start the fund off again. His pi-op6sltion was accepted and he tossed a five dollar bill Into the editor's hand. So here is the first subscription lined up : Alex Harron ...............$6.00 Come oh Good Fellows, join the proceasion.
