Mary was glad to hear about Eliza- beth, and she went in haste to pay her a visit. Elizabeth was very glad to see her cousin, and thus saluted Mary: "Blessed art thou amongst women, and blessed is the fruit of thy womb; and why has God 8one this to me, that the mother of my Lord should come to me? You are blessed, Mary, because you believed; therefore God will do to you what He has said." Mary then sang d beautiful song, the words of which God put into her J heart: "My soul doth magnify the Lord, and my spirit hath rejoiced in God my Saviour. Because He hath re- I garded the humility of His handmaid; I for behold, from henceforth all gener- ations shall call me blessed. Because He that is mighty hath done great things to me and holy is His name." This is part of the song which is call - ed the "Magnificat." Mary stayed with Elizabeth for three months, and then she returned home, John is Born. After a time Elizabeth's little boy was born, and all her friends came to see her and wish her joy. When the baby was eight days old they had a f ceremony called the circumcision, and they said: "You must call him after his father's name;" bat Elizabeth said: "No; call him John." But they reminded her that there was no one in the family who.bore that name. Then they made signs to his father, how he would have him called. But he being still dumb, made signs and de- manded a tablet, and wrote: "John is his name." At the same moment this tongue was loosened, and he spoke. And all those who were present were amazed, saying one to another, "What think ye shall this child be? for the hand of the Lord was with him." Zachary, in an ecstasy of joy and gratitude, began to bless God in a canticle which still bear his name: "Blessed be the Lord God of Israel, because He hath visited and wrought the redemption of His people. And hath raised up a horn of sal- vation to us, in the house of David /-Its servant.

New York, Dec. 15--Appointment of committee to go to India to investi- gate charges of alleged British mis- rule in that country was provided for in resolutions adopted here today at the first convention of the Friends for Freedom of India. Among the charges alleged were that Great Britain has ruled and dominated India in the exclusive inter- ests of the British Empire," and that "as a direct result of British exploita- tion the native industrial system has broken down." Other charges made were that Great Britain has steadily cut off the means of education; excessive taxa- tion; enforced exportation "which has literally starved millions of the peo- ple of India, and that under the Brit- ish rule deeds of violence, deaths from creased, plague, sickness and misery have in- PRINCIPAL CAUSES OF DEATH Oroonoko.

SANTA CLAUS IN MEXICO. Christmas is the happiest time in all the year for every Mexican child. The poorest family there is not so poor that it cannot, on that day, have som sort of a festivity. This is cll- ed a posada. There is always great fun for the old people as well as the children. It is great fun to buy Christmas i gifts in Mexico. One of the sights which pleases the children most is that of the Indian men and women carrying long poles over their shoul- ders, from which hang paper dolls, oftentimes us large as the children themselves. It may be a clown, it may be a dancing girl, a sailor boy, or per- haps a ship with all its sails to the wind. Perhaps it is a dog or a horse. These are all made out of paper and are called pinatas. The pinatas are made of bright-colored paper and tin- sel, and are very bright and lovely. On Christmas day the pinata is broken open, and out falls a wonder- ful sliower of sweets and rattles and things that boys and girls like very much. In the United States we have a Christmas tree on Christmas Eve, and trim it up with tinsel and candles and put our presents on it and around it. But Mexican children are made very happy with their pinata, for these take the place of the tree. These al hung from the ceiling, and the break- ing of them is always u ause tor much merriment. Mexican children all go to 5 o'clock Mass on Christmas morning withtheir elders. A SEASONABLE SERONETTE.

MARTIN OF TOUR St. Martin was a soldier brave In France of long ago, And riding on his prancing steed Along the road he'd go. One day he met a beggar man, Forlorn, and meanly clad; Martin checked his charger's pace The vision made him sad. No gold or food the soldier had, But then a purpose woke; fie drew his sword and cut in twain His handsome riding-cloak. Half of his cloak he laid upon The shivering, beggar's back, And then, with sunshine in his heart Rode down the winding track. That night in dreams he saw Our Lord Wearing in Paradise The half-cloak he that day had given To Him in beggar's guise. The poor they are God's very own And when we give to them It is as if we gave to Christ Homeless in Bethlehem. Ave Maria. In pain were we brought into the world and our lives are usually lives of pain. If God had intended He would have fashioned the earth on a differ- ent plan. Nature in us and around us fight against us, but with charity pain endured for Christ becomes a pleas- ure, and this world a Paradise. of the 2450 policy-holders who died in the third quarter of 1920: '  ' Heart disease .................. 364 Cancers and tumors ............. 224 Consumption ................... 192 Appoplexy ...................... 172 Accidents ...................... 162 Bright's disease ................ 152 Pneumonia ...................... 151 Influenza ................. 2 ..... 10 Disease of arteries ............... 96 Disease of digestive organs ...... 64 Paralysis ........................ 58 Liver disease ................. ._ 52 Diabetes ....................... 46 "Blood poisoning, anemia, ere ...... 89 War ........................... 38 Appendicitis .................... 37 Bronchitis, pleurisy, etc ........... 34 Typhoid fever .................. 30 Old age ........................ 13 I All other causes ................ 421 Age at death-- 30 years old and under ........ 212 Between 30 and 40 ............ 345 Between 40 and 5.0 ............ 556 50 and over ................. 1337 2450 LADY TRENT'S ii.
