About the Cover: by Ethel A. (Ma)

Olaf Wieghorst, that master painter of
Western pictures, has given us a typical and touching scene.
This is a photograph of an oil painting which is magnificent
in its original colors. There doesnt seem to be any signs
of life in the cabin, so we wonder just what the situation is.
We can imagine that its Christmas Eve and that the folks
who belong there will be showing up any minute, maybe coming
from town with some gifts from each other. Then theyll
light the lamp, make a fire and cook supper, and take care of
that horse thats so patiently waiting outside. You can
build a lot of stories around a picture like that. Thats
what makes it great - great in its simplicity.
