' Tf J Never tajt^^ays^-oiir merchants indulg^dTrsuch prety designs of cal- end^fs to present friends and patrons ^as have been printed by The Observer during the past month. Fred Schmid is passing out a beautiful hand painted picture of the head and shoulders of a winsome miss, who will win her way into the hearts of all who are fortunate enough to secure her. - Seeger & Schroen's calendar is a pretty lake and mountain view, with the sun trying to hi eak through a fog. James Marchesotti's calendar represents a young lady in a. swell tailored suit, and this is also hand painted. Will Sturm has a swell picture of a fair equestrienne beside a magnificent specimen of horseflesh. Burkhart Bros.' design represents flowers, re'splendent in all of the beautiful colors nature is so lavish with. S. Y. Cotton got away from the long. panels he has used for several years and is giving out a picturesque American scene. Alber & Theurer also have hand- painted calendars, representing a nearly full length photo ', / a charming young lady, the frame and background harmonizing Muir & Gross have two designs this year, one representing a little child and dog enjoying lake breezes, while the other pictures three little ones indulging m a frolic in a bath room. George J. Bersuder of Bridgewater has a handsome hand-painted picture of a young lady's head and sh.ulders and we'd judge from her appearance she is all ready for some social function. She appears quite happy with her prospects. Maurer Bros, of Bridgewater selected a banner representing a boy busy at the telephone, taking orders for their products. Much care was taken in arranging the typographical effects and colors of • * ink to harmonize with tlie pictures, and | j it doesn't matter much which calendar 11 you may be favored with, you are sure • |, of a work of art in every respect, Muir & Gross' Specials . i Don't forget to let us figure on that j heating job, steam or hot water; also j the Bound Oak for hot air heating.

All Made Merry at Christmas Meeting of the Woman's Club. The Saline Woman's club spent a most delightful afternoon with Mrs. Fred Burkhart, Tuesday, where a Christmas .program was carried out. The house was tastefully decorated in the Christmas colors and a Christmas tree laden with pretty things stood in the corner. The Christmas spirit prevailed everywhere, especially when Santa Claus rapped at the door, laden with gifts for all present. At roll call responses were given by members reciting some Christmss rhymes. The following program was rendered: Solo—Mrs. Fred Burkhart. Recitation—Msster Bruce Parsons. YOcal trio—Misses Wheeler. Recitation—Little Miss Edith Rose Parsons. Vocal solo—Miss Wyckofi. * All were heartily applauded. The program committee in charge of the afternoon's entertainment then distributed nuts to be cracked, each containing some certain "stunt" to be performed by the recipient. This caused very much amusement, and the joviality which followed must have been heard by Santa, who then appeared in the room, darkened with the exception of the small electric lights on the tree. Mrs. Lehman also presented each member with a small favour, a snapping jack. The club then adjourned for the holidays. The next meeting will be held at the home of Mrs. Earl Dietiker, January 4, 1916. MARRIAGE LICENSES Durand J. Young, 22, York, Daila May Clark, 20, York. .

The Pledge and its Significance. Are you Helping to Keep Up the Attendance? Prayer meeting, Thursday evening. It is encouraging to see a growing interest in this meeting, still there are others who might come. At the annual meeting of the C. E. society, of the Presbyterian church the following officers were elected for the ensuing year: President, Eugene Crittenden; Vice-President, William Lutz; Corresponding Secretary, Miss Edna Smith; Recording Secretary, Miss Margaret Fairbanks; Treasurer, John Finch. The reports of the several committees revealed the society to he in good financial condition and renewed interest along all lines. The annual candy-pull afforded the usual fun and amusement, and all went home with a consecrated purpose tp make the society a still greater success. With the near approach of Christmas has it occurred to you that we are all under a personal obligation to create a Christmas spirit? In all probability there has never been a time like the present, when passion and strife and hatred was so world-wide and intense. Shall the debates of Congress, on Preparedness for war, the thunder of artillery and the appeal to passion,, deafen our ears to the angelic song of peace? Every Christian should realize the deep spiritual significance of Christmas, and be at peace among themselves. God help us to brighten some corner in our own hearts, that we may enshrine the glory of the Saviour's presence and so brighten and cheer this old battle-scarred world, with a true Christmas spirit. _.
