"Hallelujah," and "To prabe the Lord." The superintendent of the school (Mr John R.

'? that around the n,me of tile go,itl4-,man sa, Child of Bethlehem the greatest minds of the last 2000 years had gathered together. In the realms of science and poetry, music and art, the noblest works had Jesus for a subject. What large town in England or Walo3, he remarked, ever allowed the birthday of Jesus Christ to pass without aranging a performance of Handel's "Messiah," a work in which the divine bubbled throughout "Behold the Man," the popular painting at the Liverpool Art Gallery, had, he believed, been the means of bringing many a wandering heart to the great Saviour's 'feet. The gospel of Christ, introduced into Japan but very recently, had regenerated that country in a busi- ness tense and also in an intellectual and spiritual sense. Of the character of Jesus, tho sceptic John Stuart Mill said he did not think a more perfect or purer character than Jesus of Nazareth could ever be found. In whatver direction they looked they could see that all things bore some relation to the: Child whose birthday they were that day celebrating. The service concluded with the singing of Mor- gan Rhys' "Pcraidd ganodd ser y bore."
