CHRISTMAS IN HORSHAM.. On Wednesday morning, the festive season in Horsham opened unauspic iously for holiday weather,'a lighttrain falling, and this no' doubt kept back many of the outside dwellers from making an early call in the town to do their final Christmas shopping. But as the day proceeded the rain lifted and there was a very strong procession of motor cars and vehicles of all do scriptions into town. The business people had added a touch of ever green to the verandah posts, and this gave Firebrace and Wilson-streets an appropriate setting. Business. was re ported as steady, but not strong, dur ing the-dlay, the weather conditions holding people back, but with the im provement in the evening the streets were thronged and remained so to a late hour, and much of the lee-wnya was Biade up. Oh Christmas Day services wcrc held in the Church of England, Presbyterian Church. and the Roman Catholic Church. A large number of people, spent the holidays camping out, Christmas Day and Boxing Day being ideal for the purpose, hut Saturday's steady rain marred the final pleasure.
