Men have long used the Star as a symbol of Christmas, and in the hundreds of years that have passed since it appeared, Christmas has come to mean many things to men. It means the giving of gifts, feasting and the laughter and excitement of children. It means the caroling, the chiming of bells and the playing of pageants. It means brightly lit trees and brightly blazing hearths, and their light streaming across thresholds where doors open wide to friends and kindred. It means the fever of getting ready for this day that comes but once a year; it means crowds, and hustle and bustle. And for those who have fixed their eyes on the Star, it has a meaning rich beyond the power of words. For to these, Christ-malike the Star, has a single meaning the adoration of Our Lord Jesus Christ oj Whom it is promised that if a man believe in Him, that man will never die, but will live forever. Let's not lose sight of the Star. Let's remember the message it bore that on this day, Christ the Lord was born. Let's keep Christ in Christmas, and keep Christmas- - To our 'family' cherished friends, ao wish the joys of a good old-fashion- Christmas. And along tciih our greetings, we'd like to send our sincere s, thanks for the opportunity 1 . of serving all our patron. in Christ. ELKHORN & JELLICO COAL CO.
