THAT CHRISTMAS FEELING. The Christmas feeling has pervaded Horsham for some days. It is a season of goodwill and incidentally good business. Walt. Mason, the fa mous American poet, in. his book "Horse Sense" gives a Christmas re cipe that is worth passing on. He says, "Make somebody happy to-dayl Each morning that motto repeat, and life, that was gloomy and grey, at once becomes pleasant and sweet." At Chr'stmas time quarrels are for gotten, if not forgiven. The streets of Horsham yesterday were lined with pine boughs which perhaps serv ed a double purpose. Besides their decorative value, they prevented the large crowds which gather taking up the Australian's favorite duty-hold ing up a verandah post, The shops used all the enticements at their va rious d'.sposals to induce the purchase of Christmas presents.
