Tq the;youiig Ghristmas Trith ita famOiar associations is ever wel-� Gom^. To'.the is equally bo, ' in that it takes them back in recol-lectibn to the happy period of child-iico'd. So, bid and young have a oom-II moa internet, .and another link is forged in-the family life of the peo-i ���� pie. - � To the people of the British Ero-pfre. C'hrifitiiias liaiL ,a spirit and Keeping*: totally distinct frcto the way it is observed felsewhere. It is the festival of church,and Kopme. In this recognition tixc .observation of Christinas grains* � '. ��� i--;-*^^ The spirit of Ghristma's is a.tTadi-tionary tpirit handed do\rn v f^otn generation to generation, wi^ ��pie. Bavor of home-and ^iHeside xri^isibl-nbly linked with its keeping. It is the Empire Home Day, .'and vrith .� this it brings into proniinence. the lelfltjon between lioino and Empire. il&any of our ChristmaB customs ;'were originally pagan ones " with jjow a different application. What is now tlie Christmas feast waa at . .5>ne time the great feast of Saturn, held- in December, when the people decorated the temples with, such green things as they could find. The Christian custom is the same, transferred to Him who was born in Bethlehem on Christmas Day. With what we associate with Christmas there is something fitting in its appearance at this season of ';the ^o�t. It is � period when those .?�0 placed suffer the most keenly from poverty. To them the sufllering ' ,Kid discopiforfc would be all the ipore were it not for the good cheer .which others place at their -disposal. Consequently it makes tlie spirit of good, fellowship and kindness all the more appreciated. THo Christmas can paw without om paying an indebtedness to the jnan, Charles Dickens, who made Christmas what it is. In Scrooge he created a character which has gained immortality in the manner in .which the proper Chiiatmas spirit ."Wa* shown where at first it had no, jilace. It was Dickens who brought real home touch to Christmas Ui making it the festival of every koirie, however so humble. Ch^istnus, as it comes round inch year shows that the feeling of Idndnees and of kindly consideration #till abounds. The experience of The Borald Christmas Cheer Fund is a Opse in point. It will bo a bad day iOT the world should this spirit of 3C0II0W feeling fail to show forth. It h encouraging to know that it is there, and that, in spite of our individual cares and anxieties, there are --those who have still the time to ithink of othersi. It drives away any-.thing of the gloom in the regard t^iat human natiire is sordid. It tolls �� thia is not so. The heart of the Vorid is still right. The old Christinas ^irit is still alive. Long may it contiuue, bringing cheer and hap-Jiinese, good fellowship and good feeling, and spreading the gospel of ivdiance. , To all its readers The Herald gtretches forth the right hand of jEriendsUp und fellowship. May Jiappinesfi find its place in every home. Hay good cheer abound. MiBST Ohbistkas" to oat) and THE SPIRIT OF CHRISTMAS TmmtlVr is the feast of the Christian church, in ^ ..i?*M^^**'^^^*'^ ^ ^^^^ when the birth ?^ 5? becomes reflected in the hearts of^dividuals, in the measure they Jive up to the spirit of ||hnstmas. It is at least one occasion iii which e becomes glorified in realizing the tnith that for others transcends the thought for one a human the th self. W oiated is the spirit of Christmas? It is the spirit asso-^ the" innocent child. R is the spirit .which thiQlc? �^vil in its relation to others. It is the spirit which was �inb6died in the eloquent wish of Tiny Tim, which has been^ade immortal in its association with Chricttmas, "God W�8s everybody." The spirit of peace and goodwill associated with Christmas nas its origin in humility. Proclaimed as,coming t6 thib liirorld by the hierarchy of Heaven, in the celestial choifthlt astonished the shepherds on their night watch, it fotlhdlts birth in the lowly cradle of the manger. It is inihig d^irit of humility that the real peace and goodwill can1)e ofa^ined. It is not by arrogance, not by a too exalted opinion of ourselves^ihat peace and goddwill can be obtained. This applies to individuals as much as to nations. This is the lesdon 41.016 manger at Bethlehem. n The^irit of Christmas is testified in the spirit of giving iThere is something different in the giving at this seasdifi^ giving on other occasions. The Christinas giving ite^4yilTOntaneousg^ It is a giving glbrifieid by the de^ t0%ing happiness. This is the secret of all Inie giv-we give ^vidence of that humanity wlddli is , and which the feast of Christmisaa it comes ^______year brings its reminder. ^ :bi)y^ all and hevond all, the spirit of dhristmas is 'of forget and forgive. It is the opporUiliuj^ for . J the ancient grudge, for bur>nng the Ihntohiet of In so doing, and with the handsha% of f el-cordiality, we not .only exalt ourselviM^ln one , jopinion, but proclaim and emi^tasise those vir^jis tni the Christian creed which make it o)ie far differ-ent^tSJilp^dthCTs. ' � pluistmas has its uses in teaching the gr^I^liBon of hunia^it^. Take away the relation of htnni^$% which stam#8 us all as human beings, and we relnov; that uobllit^M character wliich i$ recognized asfth^e dividing line between man and the brute. In th? value it is recognized, the greater will grow the reg?tfd fOl'the Christmas spudt In this regard the strong? cr m\l b^i^attemed the lines on which we strive to cast our #ve8. The bells of Christmas as they peal strike Uie chords of ^hmnan^ nature and awaken them to activity. Glorious chillies! Happy chimes! As they soimd they proclaim the humanity of man as exemplified in the divinity of the Christ child. iTian Poitm By 8. E. Klaer HlMOi .t."  FRIDAY. DECEMBER � fPBHttetted frottt front fgig.)

ALBERTA In Alberta tast Week of Feb.- Awaken Fanners to the Weed Menace CardBton branch, and the Manyber^ ries branch, with probably a inui to Coutts iQso.' Two points' will be covered each day.  , The particular purpose which the weed special is to serve will be to waken the farmers and the public at large to the BcriouBness of the weed menace, said to have now assumed alarming proporUons. One or more of the coaches on the train will be used for demonstration work and will be outfitted with sample plant, beds and boxes showing varioos stages of growth and ways and means for combatting the evil. Some plants are now being grown from weed seed at the university here for the nse of this illustrative work, bat the greater part of the material will be supplied from Manitoba. Grasshopper Talk Also It is the desire of tho Albort* dSf partment to have the grasshopper .menace included witb the weeds, and :it is likely that, while in the other -provinces tbe lecture programme will be confined largely, or entirely to the weed question, there may be provision In. the tour through tbls 'province tor similar empbasia upon the danger of the hoppers. Further outbreaks of the insect plagno are expected next spring, and the government author!-tlba here are desirous of Impressing uron farmers, In the south country especially, the need of taking effect-jre measures to fight them. Some time will therefore be fonnd for grassbopner as well as weed talks, though the latter will be the main purpose of the tour. The staff of experts taking part In the demonstrations will be furnished mostly by the department of agriculture in each province, with one and possibly two lecturers supplied by the Dominion department covering the whole ground In the tliree provinces. The Alberta men already lined up for the work are H. A, Craig, deputy minister; Prof. Cutler of the university; S. O. Carlyle and J. Smith. Lectures will be given each day in one of the coaches, the train being sidetracked at each of the stations selected for a half-day, during which time it will be holding a recaption to the  farmers of the surroujidtng district. New Labor Party In Manitoba (Speciia to the Herald) EDMONTON, Dec. 24.-Arrange-monts are now well in hand for the interprovinoial weed special that Is to be run through Southern Alberta early in the new year. It Is expected that the train, which Is to leave Winnipeg about January 26, will be in Ihia province for tUe last week in February and the first week of' March, but its itlnei-ary is not yet! fully made up. Two weeks in each! province will be provided for. The three governments are co-operating in the B^home, with some assistance also from the Dominion Department of Agriculture. In Alberta �hreo lineb of railway; will be Includea In the itinerary. These will be the Walsh to Plncher Creek line, Which will make Letb-brtdge one of tba points of call, the WINNIPEG. Dec. 24.-A new party, to be known as the Independent Labor Party of Manitoba, was organized at a representative meeting of workers from the three wards here last night. In the declaration adopted, the party will function politically, giving expression to the aspirations of all workera, regardless of industrial aflailiation who favor establishment of a co-operative commonwealth, with production for use instead of for profits-as its economic basis. The party has been created as a result of the recent factional split In the membership of the Dominion | Labor party.
