(Recitation for five scholars.)

First scholar:
Who are these that ride so fast? They are Eastern

monarchs three, Who have laid aside their crowns, and renounced their

high degree; The eyes they love, the hearts they prize, the well

known voices kind, Their people's tents, their native plains, they've left them all behind.

Second scholar: The very least of faith's dim rays beamed on them

from afar, And that same hour they rise from off their thrones

to track the star; They cared not for the cruel scorn of those who called

them mad; Messiah's star was shining and their royal hearts were glad.

Third scholar: But a speck was in the midnight sky, uncertain, dim

and far, And their hearts were pure, and heard a voice pro

claim Messiah's star; And in its golden twinkling they saw more than com

mon light, The Mother and the Child they saw in Bethlehem by night.

Fourth scholar: And they have knelt in Bethlehem! The everlasting

Child They saw upon His Mother's lap, earth's Monarch

meek and mild; His infant feet, with Mary's leave, they pressed wit!

loving kiss Oh, what were thrones! oh, what were crowns! to such a joy as this?

Fifth scholar: Ah, me! what broad day light of faith our thankless

souls receive, How much we know of Jesus, and how easy to be

lieve; 'Tis the noonday of His sunshine, of His sun that

setteth never; Faith gives us crowns, and makes us kings, and our kingdom is forever!

(F. W. Faber.) Hymn 86. "Silent Night! Holy Night!" Recitation:

Oh, sleep and rest; oh, sleep and rest,
Thou blessed Babe upon my breast,
For softly fades the evening light;
Soon it is night; soon it is night.
Sleep on, sleep on, thou Babe divine,
Held warm against this breast of mine;
So soft and small, so soft and small,
To be the very Lord of all.
Oh, little, little tender hands,
Must you be pierced and bound with bands?
Oh, little feet against my arm,
Must you go forth to suffer harm?
But sleep and rest; oh, sleep and rest,
Thou holy. Thing upon my breast;
The sword that pierces the heart of thine,
My little Babe, must pass through mine.

Sleep on; sleep on, tho'shadows fall,
Sleep on, thou King and Lord of all.
Oh, sleep! thy Mary shall not fear
While tho art near; w le thou art near.

would have celebrated his ninety-first birthday. He was a Minister of the

Gospel, a Missionary to Africa, later a Home Missionary until he reached his three score years and ten, and since that time he had been preaching whenever and wherever the opportunity occurred. for he loved to tell the Gospel message. His life was consistent with that which he preached, and when he died the editor of the local paper, in a sketch of his life, said: “Few men, if any, who lived in County influenced more people for good than Dr. W. did.”

he was indeed a good man, and the secret of his life came from the study of the Word of God, with continued and earnest prayer, and a knowledge, by education and reading, of the work of the Church. He was an intelligent preacher and talker, and it was said of him that" his sermons were logical and convincing." He lived in a spiritual atmosphere, and “walked with God.” Wherever he lived, he was interested in the young, and was successful in leading many to Jesus Christ.

jf we would manifest a strong manhond, we should receive our strength from the same sources as this man who has just passed on to his God, whose influence was great, and of whom nothing detrimental can be said. The one great task of lite is the making of monhood, and if we, as Christian people, are built upon the one foundation, Jesus Christ, and take him for our example, we will grow into that perfect manhood which the God-man exhibited, and which is needful for success in life in the true sense.

“ This learned 3 from the shadow of a tree

That to and fro did sway upon a wall;
Our shadow selves, our influences, may fall

Where we can never be.”
That 1913 will be a year of growth for us all, with a greater influence for
good, is the wish of

Your sincere friend,

Wm. . Stoever, President.

A youth entered Gustavus Adolphus College with the purpose of taking a brief business course.

The singing of “A Mighty Fortress Is Our God” by three hundred voices in the chapel of the College so impressed the young man that he determined to continue his studies and get all the College could give him.

That young man is now Governor Eberhart of Minnesota.

[graphic][merged small]

After noting the facts, the editor of one of Minnesota's leading secular newspapers writes: "In the song he found the germ that made him Governor in less than twenty year. Four hundred years had not ended the power of the Luther hymn : it was still potent to make men men.”

This hymns, and two hundred and forty-nine others with inspiring ring and tuneful harmony, make up the
