A GENTLER. CHRISTMAS. To the Editor Sir,—The next, great festival of the year, which will soon be with us, is Christmas. Already the preparations for this saddest, of sad seasons for the animal world are being made, and already the painful preliminaries of the cramming of fovvls) and penning of cattle have begun. Soon, the overdriving of tired beasts will commence, and the busy knives will be at work, and the thud of the deadly pole axe will he going on behind closed doors, and in gory chambers throughout the land. May I, as a, Fruitarian of over a quarter of a century, plead with all whose souls are touched with pity for suffering animals, to abstain this Christmastide from adding to the agony of a suffering creation by demanding" "roast beef" for their Christmas dinners. Under many difficulties, and in many climes,—from the. torrid sun of Aden to the bitterness of some of our northern win- ters,-I have kept over twenty happy Fruitarian Christmas festivals, full of gladness in the thought that ere, long the coming of the "Prince of Peace" would be i celebrated by giving rest and joy to all creation. Recipes for a, delightful Christmas din- ner, as prepared by the staff of the Lady Margaret Fruitarian Hospital, Bromley, Kent, will be gladly sent to any one who forwards a stamped envelope to the hon. secretary; and my experience of many years leads me to add that those who do this will look back to their first, gentle Xmas with much joy, and with very grate- ful hearts.—Yours faithfully, JOSIAH OLDFIELD, Bromley, Kent.
