the funds, thut some way should be
found to secure about $200 (the remainder being paid by tlie Government).

That the twofold attraction of Canada's audiences and Canada's scenic and climatic allurements, especially at
Banff, is proving Irresistible to many great concert, theatrical and movie stars is well brought out by the sheaf
of photographs reproduced above, which represents some of the famous artists who have recently visited Canada.
The majority of the originals of these pictures need no introductions to Canadians. Sophie Breslau, that brilliant contralto singer, who is shown about to start her tour of this country from the Canadian Pacific Railway's
Windsor Station, Montreal, made a great hit everywhere. Dame Clara Butt retains her place in the hearts of British
audiences, Galll Curd's golden voice has enraptured millions. Elsie Janis, internationally known impersonator,
and her 'Momma' foregathered with the Mountle at the C. P. R. station at Banff and got a big thrill. Jack Holt,
famous movie star, snapped off duty among the Indians at Banff, Is lyrical on the subject of Canadian scenery.
Jascha Helfetz was on his way to the Orient when he posed for the Canadian Pacific camera-man*The perennial
Pavlowa expresses her appreciation of services rendered aboard the 'Empress of France'. Doug and Mary had the
time of their young lives holidaying at the Canadian Pacific hotel at Banff, where the picture reproduced was taken.
Thomas Melghan* the well known
Paramount star, will appear in the

Adapted from the George M. Co-

THE world is getting so big and
there arc so ninny little folks
nnd big folks in it who look
forward tn n visit from Santa
Clous, all on the sumo day, that
the genial old go- ■■■ man is forced
by tno pressure o* his duties to
discard his reindeer and his sleigh
on occasions and to travel on the
fast passenger trains that are I
Speeding people home for Christmas Day. * Nothing but the very
best will dp Rants ('laus, and that]
is why, as you see here, he has
chosen as his steed one of the huge
locomotives of the Canadian National Railways. These locomotives, known as the .1000 type, nre
the biggest passenger locomotives
In Canada. Santa Claus posed for
this picture when he was inspecting the engine so that all the hoys
nnd girls, and grown-ups, too,
could be sure that he would reach
them on Christmas Eve.

Thoughtful citizens—may we enquire
who are to be our chosen citizens to
take 1924-25 place on the School Board?
To date three names arc mentioned:
Mrs. Maxwell, Mr. R. Gamble, and
Mr. J. J. Ellinson, these residing respectively on the Ridge, at Webster's
Corners and near the Lillooet. OI each
we may later speak.
It is not too much to say that no
greater care should be taken in choosing a member of parliament or a reeve
than in the selection of the men who
are to control the destiny of all of our
public school pupils, for the school-
house is our cathedral and we want to
see the time when every mull and
woman and child will enjoy every human right; in line, the School Trustees,
with the teachers, are empire builders.
"When They Have Gone"
The past comes up—childhood
days—happy hours by the fireside—their hopes and Joys—
and   trials,   too.
You can keep the memory of
their names forever fresh by
giving some little part of the
blessings you now enjoy towards a permanent memorial
