Rev. T. E. THE NEW YEAR Tae year which dies .tonight, it is needless to say, Till be engraven in the minds of the present ssneration and all -generations to come as the year of the great war. It will be me- mora'ble in the annals of history, and the mighty crisis through which we are passing overshadows and casts i Peace- into semi-oblivion all the minor hap-' penings of the past twelve months. When we stood on the threshold of the incoming year last December we] cherished the anticipation that, after' the experience of 1913, a good year Tivas ahead. In our particular district' tve were agriculturally, at any rate, doomed to disappointment, for we 1 visited with a drouth which, j made 1914 a particularly lean year. Then followed the tocsin of war. the rattle of arms, and before the stupen- dous crisis which came with the sud-! denness of an avalanche, ws forgot our minor troubles, and rose like one man to meet It.in a spirit which befits i an Empire which stands for freedom and right The old year passes away with its Jiuman hecatombs sacrificed to the goddEsa of war. The New Tear will dawn on the battlefields of nations with the sacrifices to be repeated ibe- fore the final peace is proclaimed. But .we stand before the prospect un- appalled, knowing that wo are passing through cur.baptism of blood and fire to emerge a nation regenerated, with a new and glorious destiny ahead, an empire and nation linked together in the bonds of comradeship, riretted more securely than before foy the trials through which we have passed, and iWill be passing. Though the means are such as we should have shrinked from in appre- hension, the end will be. encompassed. iWe shall taste the blessings of an enduring peace, and under new ideals ibitter experience has planted, use the Umo for the perfection of the ways which lead a people %o perman- ent prosperity. Unlike stereotyped "A Men? which this year has had a hollow, sound, "A Happy New Year" will be one of sincere meaning, in the earnest anticipation that the wish will prove a reality. With the pealing bells tbat will herald tho New Year, more than at any time, shall ws echo, truly and devoutly, the poet's words: "Ring- out the thousand wars of old, Ring in the thousand years of peace. Ring In the valiant and The larger heart, the kindlier liaad; ;Ring out the darkness of the land." Happy New Year. Learn to write'it 1915. The latter half of 1914 has a period of warfara.
