"that's what our golden text says
today, "His name shall be colled

"Peace, Prince of Pence" echoed

"Yes, oh I yes" said Ronald, "ho

"1 don'l know how" was Ihe re-
ply.
Ronald was silent; this was a
puzzler for him. Ho couldn't put
il in words just what he knew in
his heart and he did so long to lead
this poor soul lo Jesus. But soon
a nappy thought, came to him ami
he said softly, "We can pray to
Jesus and if you like I'll ask Him
to show you how."
Then reverently he bowed liis
head and said softly. "Dear Jesus,
this poor old man don't know how
to love you, please, won't you come
to him now and help him? I do so
want him to love you and be good,
please Jesus help him now—
Amen."
When Ronald opened his eyes he
saw his father looking at, him witli
shining eyes and he thought he saw
tears in the eyes of the old man.
His father came nuickly down from
the platform and sat down on the
other side of the old man and he
said, "Tell me more about Jesus,
this little boy says He loves me, is
that true?"
And so the Missionary found another scholar and had the joy of
leading him to know Jesus as his
own Saviour and Jesus indeed became the Prince of Peace to the
Chinaman.

The City Conncil Convene!
A  regular meeting of thc City
Council was held Monday evening;
all the mem hers lieing present. A
letter from C. Rummel of the B.
C. IC. It. explained tlic delay in
installing of now street lights, as
lieing owing to inability to secure
materials, and also that there was
no advantage to tho Company in
having lights out, as thc same
amount of current was used whether
lights were burning or not, and
that notice of burned out lights
would receive prompt attention.
The Bank of Montreal, through the
local manager, E. Dutliic,

A Chrhtmat at The Five Corner*
nv SAGITTARIUS
About a mile and a half west of
the Vedder Creek, on the old Yale
Road, hidden iu thc thick growth
of hush, lie thc ruins of a little
homestead. Scarcely one log remains
upon another. Many are rotted away,
and the rest are so overgrown with
moss and weeds that thc casual
passer-by sees very little to show
him that a human habitation once
stood there.
But some thirty years ago what
is now a ruin was a comfortable log
shack. A little garden lay to one
side of it, and behind it stood a
rough looking, but rather extensive
stable.
The owncrandoccupierof this little
homestead was au enigma to the
unsophisticated settlers around.
Apparently he had no visitors. He
never went to the post offlce either
to send or receive letters. He held
as little communication as he could
with his neighbours, and none with
the outside world. Sometimes a
belated freighter or traveller would
ask for a night's lodging for himself and beasts, and though the request was always grunted, the guest
went away with no knowledge of
his hosts' hopes or history.
This lonely, retiring man, however, had a history. He was the
only son of one of England's noblemen, and heir to one of the proudest
titles that England knows. In his
early manhood he had quarrelled
with his noble father, and, in a fit
of anger had left his home, and his
native land, vowing that he would
never return. He was now close
on forty years old. For twenty |
years he had kept his vow. Hi [
had wandered the world over. The
Australian deserts, the Californian'
gold fields, the Ceylon pearlfisheries,
had one after the other been explored by him, nnd now, apparently with no very definite reason for j
doing so, he had settled on his
lonely homestead.
During till these years the bitterness in his heart had grown and
loo polled. The lapse of time, in-1
stead of softening his feelings towards those who had roused his
resentment, seemed only to have
hardened them. Often, in the
loneliness of his secluded habitation,
he would rave and curse aloud,
denouncing not only father, and
country, hut Ood Almighty as well.
No wonder that thc other settlers,
who sometimes heart! from a dis-
tanee ids unintelligible raving*,
kept aloof from him, and left him
in his mysterious solitude.
It was Christmas eve. Upon the
lonely man in the lonely habitation
tho lonesomeness wns exceedingly
oppressive. Once or twice hefore
he had felt its great weight, nnd hnd
Very   dlfforcilt   thirty   years ago
was tho Five  Corners  from   the
Chilliwaek ol' today.      immense
trees  stood   where   the  stores  and
offices of busy merchants are now
i built, and on tho corner where a
| big cement block rears its bold fa.e
| today, nestled, at that time, among
trees and flowering shrubs, tbe
little old   church   of  St.   Thomas'.
The tiny bell began to call to
worship just as this unknown man
arrived at the Corners. The sudden clang, the startling break into
the calm silence of tiie morning
seemed to unnerve him, Almost
without thinking he tied up his
horse, entered tiie church, and
knelt with the few who had gathered to celebrate tiie birth of the
Prince of Peace. So long had he
been a stranger to sacred things
that tin; simple service at tirst
Seemed unreal. If it had any
meaning for him he could scarcely
grasp it. He was about to leave
the church with a curse upon bis
lips when the little congregation began to sing the glorious old song
"Hark! the herald angels sing.''
The song wa- familiar. The tune
he knew well. As verse after verse
of tho familiar hymn was sung
visions of other Christmas days
came to him, lie could hear voices
tliat were audible to no ears but his
own. He closed his eyes, but he
could not shut out pictures of Eases
that lie had known and loved. Se
thc good Vicar told the old. old
story of "peace on earth, goodwill
towards men," the anger and bitterness of twenty years faded from
his heart, and in tlieir places sprang
up an unquenchable desire for peace
and rec.mciliu.Uiju.
Two or three days after <"*hrstrrnia
it became known lhat the mysterious, lonely settler bad disappeared.
His house was in order. His animals were wandering loose. Of lha
man himself no trace was tstes
found by the parties which miuie »
half hearted  search for him.
In the following spring a iw»et,
gray-haired old lady in England,
who had almost given up hope,
reaped the reward of earnest, faithful prayer, when she received back
again her son who had been lost
for twenty years.
Before a year had gone by the
good Vicar of the church at the
Five Comers was presented to
a valuable ami important living
near Pontefract, in Yorkshire, He
has not yet learned to whose favor
and influence he is indebted for his
preferment.
He has noticetl, nowever, that on
each Christmas morning a gentleman whom he does not know, and
who certainly does not reside in his
parish, conies to worship in his
church. Tiie stranger is now fast
approaching three score years and
ten. Regularly for many years he
has appeared on Christmas morning
and then mysteriously vanished.
He is getting feeble now and his
Christmas visits are nearly over.
The Vicar has never been able to
find out who Ills strange visitor may
be. If, however, the Vicar were more
in touch with national life he
might learn that the Oreat Queen
more than once leaned upon the
arm of this unknown man: that he
often sits at the council table of his
King; that on slate occasions be
wears the insignia of the Order of
the Carter; and that he worship-,
once a year iu the Vicar's church
iu memory of a Christmas day
spent nt the Five Comers, some
thirty years ago.

It cannot ho reached nt. nil hy rail;

Dm* consequence is that Tripoli has

BETWEEN YOU  AND  ME
BY DOG TOBY
II you consider in an inquisitive
fiiiinc of mind, please romember
I that we am nil moody at ono time
or another, and it you are inclined
to reply, lie brief nnd kind, and do
not lose any sleep in endeavoring
to solve (lie problems. The solutions nmv be obvious.
* .
Hit takes u competent man 7
weeks, 5 days, il hours nnd 'Id
minutes to clean a lady's watch,
after promising 111 limes to havo it
"ready lo-morrow sure," how much
pin money should n mail allow bis
wife during Xmns week when bargains are given a way, and she cini-
not romember tho size of her husband's gloves?
If a loaf of bread is a few ounces
short of the correct weight, is it
right to break open the baby's
money box to give the tot a Xmns
present, instead of calling nt lbc
Bank for the necessary? The baby
cannot count the "dough" and the
customer inny not weigb tbe bread,
but Ibe doubtful way is thero nil the
same!
. »
If tbe crazy limes cut down and
otherwise dnmnge the young trees
on the roadside, how niiiny yenrs
must n Btreit be gnzetted before the
authorities become cognisant of its
existnnco and permit the residents
to share some benefit from tbeir
own taxes.
If it is necessary to remove beautiful shade trees to allow the proper
construction of a sidewalk, whilst
there is no objection to telephone
poles obstructing the same, why do
the suburban ratepayers have to
bear more than their share of cost
nf improvements near the centre of
the city, whilst their immediate requirements are totally ignored?
If it takes one night's rain to
convert neglected streets into a
quagmire, which would be the more
economical:—To build plank bridges
over thc mud holes, or All them
with gravel or even crushed rock if
it could be spared for such a purpose! (The office lioy advises the
erection of danger posts, but they
would   totally  obstruct  traffic  in
some parts!)
* .
If it takes(either change the sub-
ject—oi—quit—Editor C. P. P. )
Alright, boss, just this and no
more! If it takes six months to
fix the crossings at the corners,
what has become of the dozens of
rubbers lost in navigating a successful passage from one side of the
road to the other, these lust few
days.
Is there to be an election for
Mayor of our thriving city? It is
time some definite announcement
reached the electorate. Party politics should lie as dead as a door
nail and the idea should lie greatest
good for the greatest number,
irrespective of politics or creed.
. .
And so another Christmas is upon
us when families gather, and goml
will seems to predominate in all
men's minds. It may lie a time of
happy memories or sad recollections
to some, but to thc younger generation, the greater thought is Santa
nnd bis toys.
. .
Sleepy Santa singed by tbe
Wesely troop of scout boys, assisted
by their yotng lady friends, provided an evening's capital enjoyment for a good crowd, and it is
evident the parents are Oncottraging
the youngsters in the right direction.
. .
The I'. S. A. is doing line and
an audience of almut •.'.in men gathered on Sunday afternoon, I am told,
In listen to a very able  address  by
Bishop de Pencler, Next Sunday
wns announced as Ladles Day, ns
the men will take their lady friends
to the sacred concert in the Opera
House, and listen to a programme
such ns never before presented to a
Chilliwack nsserniily.
. *
It is nn old wish, but I feel justified in closing these icinarks by
expressing to my readers, one and
nil,the sincere, genuine, hearty wish
A .Merry rhristiv.fi and A Happy
New Year.
Don Toby.

COMMUNICATIONS
Mr, Editor,—Since iny letter of
Inst week, stating tbe possibility of
my becoming a candidate for the
office of Mayor for 1912, and which
wns written prior to thc publication of Aid. Jackason's announcement, the instsUnce of many of my
itipporters has decided me upon
iiei'omtng a candidate for the office.
The men whose names were
given under Aid. Jackson's announcement, are such men as 1
would like to see on the Board of
Aldermen, whosoever may be Mayor, and I am assured by such
names, and of others who I know
will present themselves, tbat there
will bn a Rood board of Aldermen
for the coining year.
As n enndidnto for tho office of
Mayor, 1 stand first of nil, for good
government, nnd the enforcing of all
laws tending to the City's welfare:
For the extension of goml roads
uud sidewalks, and the effectual
draining of the City:
1 consider the question of
dealing with sewage, one of
vital importance to the health of
the city, and will lend all the aid 1
can, to obtain a satisfactory solution of this problem:
To take up and expedite all
measures tending to the general
and progressive welfare of the city,
with a due regard to keeping down
our taxes, as low us is possible and
consistent with progressiveness.
1 wish to give special emphasis
regarding the matter of good government, and the protection of every
man's rights, because,—last Satur-
lay, I heard that a report was being circulated to the effect, that
should I bo elected Mayor, our
present Chief of Police would lie
dismissed from the Force, 1 do
not for a moment credit that anyone who knows me, would place
any credence whatever, in such a
report, but in justice to myself,
and in justice to others who might
entertain any doubt, 1 just have to
state, that I would be one of the
Inst men to countenance the discharge of any man preforming his
duties faithfully, and have never
even thought of such a thing. All
I ask for, is faithful performance of
such duties for which a man is engaged,—and as regards the police
department, thnt the officers shall
avoid any unreasonable harshness
in their dealings with the unfortunates of whom they have to take
charge. Every man has certain
rights, and it is the duty of each
one of us, to respect such rights.
I stand for "Justice" in all that
that  term  implies.
K. F. WADniNOTON.
Chilliwack Dec. IS  1911.
To thc Editor.
Serious reports have lieen made
to me of horses which are not being
properly cared for, and my attention has been drawn to one or two
lieing driven into the city whbh
arc not in a fit condition. Also
very many cases of cruelty have
been reported of chickens lieing
shipped in too small crates in some
Instances causing suffocation. So far
when the attention of owners has
been drawn to these cases, they have
been remedied. I hereby give warn
ing tbnt no more instances of cruelty
will be passed by, but prosecutions
will take plnce and heavy penalties
will he asked for. Those interested
pleased take notice.
Yours etc.

Knowledge, Love and Judgement' '. There was a large congregation present.
On Monday evening last the
Epwortli League of the Methodist
Churcli held a most interesting and
unique social gathering. The
young people were invited to meet
"Around the Camp Fire" and the
room was appropriately decorated.
In the centre a huge bonfire was
blazing (a electric light and red
paper giving just the effect needed),
in the comer a tent was erected
wilh the usual camp adornments oi
wash bowl on wooden block, frying
| pan, etc. Stories of camp life were
j told by Messrs Orr, Abbot and Beer,
j songs were sung by Miss G. Sampson
i and Miss F. Orr, a recitation given
j by Miss S. Woodworth, and camp
\ scenes were depicted on the screen
I by means of the lantern. There
was a large attendance and all
thoroughly enjoyed the evening.
Christmas Sunday in the Methodist church will be most interesting
and proiitable day. The services
will be of a most appropiate character and will doubtless be attended
by a large number, ln the morning the Girl's Choir, under the
leadership of Mrs. Geo. Ashwcll,
and assisted by Miss K. Henderson,
will give a special programme of
music and there will be a short
address by the pastor, Rev. A. E.
Roberts, on a Christmas topic. The
full programme folbws,—Duet and
chorus "The Angel's Song", Misses
F. and O. Orr; solo, "Christmas
Mom"; Miss Irene Knight; duet
nnd chorus, "Fear Not, Arise",
MissesG. Sampson and L. Cartmell;
solo," I heard the Voiceof JesusSay ",
Miss F. Orr; chorus "The Wise
Men's Offering"; solo, "Christinas
Morn", Miss Gladys Sampson;
chorus, "Sing, rejoice"; solo, selected, Miss K. Henderson.
In the afternoon, commencing
sharp nt 2.30, the Sunday School
will have an open session, when nn
appropriate programme of songs,
recitations etc., will be rendered
and the pastor will give an address
to llie children on "Thc ChllstmaS
Heart." Tlic children are to bring

John Robinson, tlio superintendent,
und the ntlicers . and teachers,
extend a hearty welcome to all who
du uot attend any other Sunday
School to visit the Methodist school
next Sunday afternoon.
The evening service will lie n
"Lantern Service." Mr. Roberts
has scented a number of colored |
slides of the fatuous paintings of
llolTniiiu on 'flic Life of Christ and
these will lie shown upon the
screen, wilh appropriate words
descriptive of the pictures and of
the matchless story of the Christ
life. Thoro will also lie hymns
sung to illustrate the story. The
service commences at the usual
hour, 7.30 p.m.

Blngla lilc H has boon thought by
pome that this practice resulted from
the lack of roads, which compelled them
to mnke their way through woods ami
around rocks by narrow paths.

that the tribes who lived in opol ill-

The true reason for journeying, ns

be a feeling of caste. This feeling wa"
at the bootom of other customs of the
Indians. It made their women slaves.

This peculiarity is Asiatic. Uow it

THE LYDD OF LYDDITE
Lyddite, the powder which has si
enormous explosive force oad that can
lie fired from a gun which is easily
carried about, floes not. as has been
widely supposed, take its numo from a
man, Imt from an ancient town near
the coast of Kent, in Knglnnd—tho
town of l-ydd. where there is a government artillery range.
II,-r.- the "tests wen- made thai resulted in Ihe preparation of this explosive; mid the name of the peaceful
Kentish village is now associated with
a substance that has dealt out death
to thousands. It has other odious qualities besides its explosive force, since
j - fumes are so suffocating as sometimes
to  be   intolerable.
Lydd shares the notoriety which attaches to tin* name of Dumdum, that
other peaceful city, iu distant BoUgal,
where aro manufactured the expanding
bullets that Groat Britain 1ms used from
time to time.

following Interesting observations!
It is obvious that a falling 11IV iu

I mil diminution nf the population resident within tlic limits of a town, dues
net necessarily imply nny corresponding ileclinc in its prosperity. Unless

ileiicy is fnr further ihcroaso tu slack-

cause thoro is less and less room left

Circumstantial accounts aro iu evidence ol' iiislnnces where the shark has
boon defeated by Iho man. At Jamaica, for example, n huge shark is said
to have been n lei'ror to froquontors of
the harbor he affected. Once he overturned a bout carrying provisions to tho
.shipping, and devoured the wife of the
boatman. Tlu- maddened widower
reached the nearest ship, seized a shark
knife, invoked the aid of his patron
saint, leaped into flic water, gave bnt -
tlu to the shark dosplto the awful odds
and succeeded iu avenging his wife by j
slaying hor destroyer. I
A shark is very tenacious of life,1
and a well known authority has pointed out that "wounds affoct fishes generally much less than higher vertebrates. A' Greenland shark continues
to feed while his heud is pierced by
a harpoon or by a knife, as long as
tho nervous centre is not touched."
A Norwegian Antarctic explorer, IF.
•F. Hull, gives a startling word picture
of a shark's tenacity of life. 'lliis
man-eater was caught at the Ecoland
cod fishery; his liver, heart and internal arrangement wero removed, so as
to put a period to his career, and the
thus mutilated body was then cast
into tho sen. He simply gave a leisurely wag of his tail and swam rapidly
out of sight.
Tho shark is comparatively clumsy
in his movements, and is compelled to
turn over iu order to seize his prey,
am) his muny enemies are not slow ill
availing themselves of these peculiarities, In issn Captain Frasor, of the
barque Thomas S. .Stowe, when one hundred miles west of tho Galapagos Islands, caught a shark which had been
