Merry Christmas Ono and AH!
THE CITIZEN takes this annual oc
anslon to extend seasonal greetings
to its thousands of patrons and
friends. We hnvo received during
tho past few weeks hundreds of
gifts iu tho way of new subscriptions
to THE CITIZEN'. Scores or people
have gone out of their way to tell
s that we are issuing tho best pa
per in tho county. We appreciate
their kind words very highly, and
ju-o determined to go on, in the
ven tenor of our way, and issue u
paper which will tell tho truth, tho
whole truth and nothing but the
truth. There is no "muzzle" in
THE CITIZEN ofllce. Wo take the
position that the press is not only
a mirror but a moulder of public
opinion. It may ho that sometimes
wo may seem to be ahead of tho pro
' ess I on, and then again wo may,
perchance, lag behind. But wo are
resolved to give our readers all the
nows, in an impartial manner. Hut
then we began to write a "Christ
How are you going to spend your
Christmas dear friend? Will you
make it a scltlsb one, or will you
put the day into practice, by trying,
just this onye, to make others hap
py? When nil has been said, It
still remains true "That it is more
blessed to give than to receive."
If you can't give presents to the
poor, the needy, tho sick and tho
afflicted, you can at least give your
self. When you have enjoyed that
bounteous dinner, and finished your
fragrant Havauna, how about going
out to call on that "shut in" friend
o yours for an hour or so? And
how about the old folks who live
hundreds of miles nwny? You sure
Iy won't forget to write them a let
ter, if only a few lines, will you? We
know you are busy. Wo are will
ing to admit, that for the past fewj
weeks, you have been working night
and day. Hut how about sending
the "home folks" a telegram, if you
are too tired to mile? Tho West
ern Union and the Postal Telegraph
Companies will gladly carry your
messages of love to tho dear old
father and mother, who are longing
to seo you on this day of days.
Don't forget to send them a night
letter on Christmas Eve, and then
when they wake up Christmas morn
ing, and are seated ubout the
breakfast table, some bright-faced
urchin will break iu on their loneli
ness with a cheery "Merry Christ
mas," on his lips and a little yellow
envelope in his bands, and Christmas

WHO WILL INTERCEDE?
THE CITIZEN has been reliably
informed that a certain manufactur
ing concern in the Maple City have
notified one of their employees, who
is married, and lias a family of eight
small children, that "he can look for
another job tho llrst of tho year.
Wo arc also informed that tho man
is very 'poor, and that lie is almost
distracted at the prospect of facing
the winter with it.s increased de
mands for food, fuel and clothing.
Who, among our public-spirited and
philanthropic eiti.ens will Intercede
in his behalf?
"This would be nice weather to bo
iu Bermuda or some other cocoanut
town," remarked a prominent citizen
to us last Friday morning, and wo
quite agreed with him. Winter
seems to have set in in deud earnest.
Wayne county is living up splendid
ly to its proverbial reputation of hav
ing "nine months Winter and three
mouths cold weather." But then
there Is a tang, a bracing quality in
tho air that inspires ono to renewed
zeal and activity. Wo shall soon
think nothing of temperatures of
twenty or thirty degrees below zero.
For our part however, give us "tho
good old Summer time!"

The "meanest" man isilways in

season of tho year. Ho never "lias

the Santa Clans story is a pious
fable invented to part him from a

takes no pleasure in receiving gifts,
for, as lie says, "he feels under ob
ligation to give presents in return."
Ills favorite argument is that "wo

into practice, is to go to church, and

Christmas time comes from the
pleasure of "giving." Wo give other

In regard to an editorial expres
sion of our esteemed down-tho-avo-iiuo
contemporary, as to a "breach
of newspaper ethics In telling their
good stories," wo submit, that when
our good Mr. Rhniuauthus Mortimer
Stocker writes about newspaper
elliics, ho writes of something con
ecruing which ho knows next to noth
ing. But then wo ran sympathize
with him In his troubles, for wo hnvo
been reliably informed that a "re
cent unpleasantness" in his own es

siderable truth In tho oft-repeated
statement, that some of tho Journals
of tho Maplo City aro "muzzled."
