curily of which  ie guaranteed by Crown Grants.

Groundhog Day
Without going into the reason
for, or the origin of,  Groundhog
Day with which the  News staff
'isunfamiliar.it  is  not  out  of
place to tell of the  popular superstition    regarding   this   day,
which falls tomorrow,  February
2.   The story goes that on that
day the groundhog comes out of
his winter quarters, takes a look-
around, and in so doing definite-,
Iy defines the brand of weather!
which may  be  expected   from
that day on.   If Mr Groundhog
saes his shadow���in other words
if the sun   is   shining���he   goes
ba:k into his den and sleeps  for'
(six weeks  more;  wh'c'i   neans,
that there still remains six weeks
to elapse before old"Crim Winter
removes   his   unwelcome   frrm
from the lap of Spring.     But if
the day is cloudy, and   no shadows visible. Sweet  Spring  may
come singing adown the dale   at
any time.    Here, of course,   we
have   no   genuine   groundhogs,
but their close cousins, the whistlers, are well  represented,   and
may be depended upon  to carry
on the groundhog's prerogatives.
The  whistler,  by  the   way,   is
much larger   than   his . eastern
cousin.    He is  highly esteemed
as an edible delicacy by grizzly
bears and a few benighted prospectors.    Pressed and sun-dried,
his carcass is worth  $1 in  Kit-
man-cool, Kit-man-gar, Kitselas,
Ki.spiox, Kitseuglaand Hazelton.
