JtlSl drawing to a cinse when we see these two traveler.% bearing with |heln the few neccssllies of an eastern household, nearing their journey's elld. A peael'ul scene stre.tches before them as; they near the village of Bethlehem. They perhaps thhlk of their f~)refatllers, who years since trod reshled there. There Boaz had lived, and the beautiful romance between him and Ruth had been enacted; there Jesse, the father ~)f David, had tended the fhwks, and there the little boy David had walked along tile valleys watching his father's sheep. From thence had David been called to become Israel's king. But pleasant thoughts must give way to the more pressing concerns of shelter and rest. The little ,town of Bethlehem was crowded with those: who had e~m~e from outlying districts to register their names. The very inn was crowded and the only available space was wher,e the cattle were ordinarily stahled. We should uo douhl love ,to hear more of the nativity, some of ,the ac- companying circumstances, but the gospel narrative is silent. This only is told. that then and there the Virgin motller hrought forth the first born and wrapped Him tn swaddling c]ethes and laid ftim in a manger. Beyond this announcement .of the bare fact. Holy Scripture, witi~ indescribable ap- proprlatenc:~s and delicacy draws the veil over the most sacred mystery. It was on t ha.t winh'y night of December 25 that shepherds watched the temple flocks in the very pla,ce where the Messiah was to be revealed. Of a sadden, we are told, their eyes were dazzled, heaven and earth seemed to mingle and tile glory of G~xl enwrappd them. Awed and expectant they heard: "Fear n,ot for I bring you tidings of great joy, wMeh be to all peo- ple. For unto you is born this ,day in the city ,of David. ~ Savior. which ts Christ the 'Lord; and this shall be a sign unto you, ye shall find the habe wrapped in swaddling clothes and lying in a manger, And ,then as though they had been awai,ting a sign, a multi,thde resounded with the song that has been heard the world over, 'Glory be to (N)d on tflgh and on earth, peace, good will to man." This is 'the story of the birth of Christ A story which" has gripped ~the heart of the world since .it was first told. The world's Savior. l~e,t the unbeliever laugh, the scoffer ridicule hut the world bows to the cradle of Bethlehem and acclaims Him wh(~ lies ~h.ere as its King. IS THE HIGHWAY DEPARTMENT ATTEMPTING TO PULL TRAFFIC TO SOUTHERN PART OF STATE Further evidence that the Custer Battlefield Highway is not receiving fair consideration from the State Highway Department was contained in the reported statement which Highway Superintendent Sevison gave to the C, heyenne Tribune last week. In his interview. Mr. Sevison is reported as having given m~i the folh)wlng informa'tion: "The planned highway system will be completed next summer in a state-federal aid program costing al least $5,455,000 and more if funds are available. "The North and South highway, from Colorado state line through Cheyenne, Casper and Sheridan to the Montana boundary, will he com- pletely oiled by lhe end of next summer. Sevison said. "'The Lincoln Mghway from the Nebraska line ,through Cheyenne, Laramie. Rawlins and Rock Sprlngs ,to the Utah boundary, will be 6 These Artful Dodgers. The '*Stop Thief" Alibi. MlrAPlaelng the Blame. Where Treason Is, Anuz~r IA'I Drink! The "Artful Dgdger" is a term that sounds familiar. But because it is not the style to read Dickens, few recall tt as the nick-name of Jack Dawkin~ who, with Charley ~=tes. were Fagan's two best pi~'XDccke~.;. ][letter dig up your "01ivcr 'ih:. t " and ~'ead the scene in front of the book store, wherk the two scamps rifled Mr. Brownlow's pockets ann when the alarm was gwen ran off crying lustily "Sto!~ Thief" leaving poor Oliver in the hands of the ~ollce while they got away with the swag. Nothing like that happens now? The defines of the pickpocket has given way to the cruder method of the stick.up and the "gat." You'd be surprised how' much of the old handicraft remains and how It has risen in the social scale with much the same technique. Look now what happens in Wash- Ington. After four days of cursory examination into the methods of the Farm Board, its now admitted sub- siding, the Stabilization corporation of Delaware, and in turn the Farm- ers National Grain Corporation of Delaware controled by the Stabiliza- tion corporation, it, Is admitted by every Senator on the Agricultural Committee that something is amiss. Itls also granted that it will take a long and serious investigation by a special committee of the Senate, em- powered to administer the oath and requisition documents and books, to uncover what graft and crookedness at first glance to have develop- ed in Farm Board me~hods and its cLmp followers. A resolution Is ~ be offered in the Senat~ to provide for such an In- vestigation. But the racketeers a~ainst whom it Is aimed are mov- in~ heaven and earth to secure amendment of the resolution so that it is made the duty of the committee so named to investigate the grain trade! If that is not an attempt to pla~ Artftfl Do~er and by crying "Stop Thief" distract attention from The same trick is visible in Minne- apolis where Governor Olson is hear- ing the charges of mixing grain and switching samples, levelled formally by a state senator, against the Farm- ers Union Terminal Association of St, Paul. The employe who did the mixing and fixed the samples goes on the sta~d and testifies that he was called over to St. Paul and given orders to turn the trick by one. Lee Abbey, superintendent of the Assoc- iation's elevators. He tells how it was planned and when he questioned the resul~ and doubted that the grain would come up in weight to the grade sold to the government. Abbey told him. "That's all right, it will be here for two years and we can fix it up!" What is the answer More Artful Dodgeringl The Farmers Union Terminal Association rushes in e,nd demands that the officers o2 the Minneanolls Chamber of C~mmerce be subpoenaed and put on the stand to Lel] what they know about this a ~ .,cy c,f tt~e F'n'm Doerd ccnlch has ~,.: ~v,,':l i.,~,~,~ li~,~ (;.3.C~;f~Caa from ",, . ~,~i " ' t 'e Term~P~t IOW grade wheal "~ncu ~ ln'e~ended to de- livcr No, 1 Dark NorLhcrn--whos to blame? The privately owned inde- pendent grain trade! So in Washington the impression is given that the grain trade lust In- sisted and demanded that Oeo. S. Milnor be given $50,000 a year; that J, M. Chilton get 832,5~0; that W. I, Beam, treasurer, get 830,000; that Henry ~V. C011inS, Northwest man- ager, get $25.000. On top of that the grain trade would give no peace until C. E. (Rev.) Huff was given $15,000 a year after his own farm- ers in the National Farmers Union kicked him from the presidency and gave it to John Simpson. It is also suspected from hints given by the racketeers that the cotton exchanges of the South were behind the scheme to give E. F. Creekmore $75,000 a year and three assistants at $30,000 each, to sell the co-operative's cot- ton on the New York exchange~ The, grain tr~tde hollered be- cause the Farm Board piled up 339,000,000 bushels of wheat which acted like a weight to keep the world price at its lowest level and urged the grain be sold. For that it must stand trial at the bar of the Senate! The grain trade said! "If you peg" the price and then pull out the peg ---somebody is going to get hurt." Was not that treason against the government? And every Artful Dod- ger in this gang is yelling "treason!" all over Washington. But the farm- er knows who got hurt and is getting the notion that the real treason is getting the government into busi- ness, and his business particularly. But, gentlemen, hush. The remedy has been found! Senator Brookhart has drawn a bill appropriating $I,- 500.000.000 tq buy some more wheat and cotton and pay all the boys big salaries. If the first "Wile drink" of $S00,000,000 put the farmer on his back--give him another three times that size and put him out of his m~l'Y! Well, if they try the grain trade for treason, they will have to try Brookhart for dementia praecox.
