AT    BAPTIST    CHUHCH.
The Baptist Church Sunday School
held their annual Christmns tree lasl
Monday evening.
Tbe great attraction was the
"baby tree" whieh was loaded with
gifts for the primary class. The
larger tree wns also well loaded for
the larger boys ami girls, even some
of the grown up folks welcomed a
Christmas stocking of candles ami
nuts. The lirst part of the evening
\v*ks taken up with dinlogUOB, recitations ami soims by the children.
Santa clans came along about
nine o'clock, and the jingling of the
sleigh hells were heard with great.
delight by the   children.
"Saute," gave a thrilling account
of his experience from tlie North
pole to Cranbrook, via, Greenland.
Sante then began his kindly work of
unloading the trees, gladdening the
hearts of young and old. To the
suporlntondnnts wlfo he gave n box
of afternoon tea spoons, and to tho
pastor and liis wife he cave -,\ beau
tiful silver tea set in case, which
came as a great surprise. The Pastor spoke a lew winds nl* appreciation in reply. Much credit is due
the teachers of the primary class for
their excellent wnrk in getting the
gifts and the stockings ready and
also in decorating the "Baby Tree."
NOTES UN MINING.
It is oxpectod that many nf the
Kootenay iniiiiiiL; and smelting
plants whieh have been closed down
will resume operations tiftor the firs'
of the New Year.
The period of unusually low prices
has not yet passed apparently, and
consumers seem to think so, too; but
wo venture the opinion thai there
will not be many more weeks ul extreme dullness.
Silver. - This market is exception
ally weak, nnd at 52J cents per line
oz., the lowest price that has been
touched  in a long time.
The lend produced in British Columbia is derived principally from
Kootenny mines. The St. Eugene,
and Sullivan mines located in the
Cranbrook district having the largest output.

all prevailing air of cheerfulness,
llie duy before Christmas finds
London almost s*11"'- The streets
are thronged und thoro appears
to he no indication that the holi
day celebrations will be conduct
ed in a more economical manner
this year than before. All of
the bijr shops report a large
trade and the proprietors aro
quoted as saying that their busi
ness for the last few weeks has
been very satisfactory.
The pre uu rations for Christmas
festivities' al Sandringhain are
much .lhe same as usual. King
Edward and Queen Alexandra
have already received hundreds
of rich aud valuable gifts from
royal relatives, diplomats and
Englishmen and officers in far
lands. Both His Majesty and
the queen will spend the holi
days very quietly, surroimded
only by members of their own
family, and only a very few select guests have been invited to
join the royal circle.
The principal feature of the
festivities of the work will be a
ball for the tenantry on the estate, at which the king and queen
and other members of the family
will be present. Tlie children's
party for the youthful members
of the royal family has been arranged for by the princess of
Wales, who also had the assis
(•ince, in the preliminary preparations, of the queen of Norway and the Princess Victoria.
After Christmas the kine and
queen will give a few small house
parties at Sandringhain. to
which some of their more intimate friends have been invited.
Later iheir majesties will proceed to Windsor castle, where
they will stay until the opening
of parliament calls for the pre
sence of the king in London.
Although a great many society
leaders have gone to the seaside
and io Paris for the holidays,
the bi«r hotels are still crowded.
All of the greal West Red hosieries have engaged all their
dining rooms for tonight and
Christmas eve will he spent by
the rich and noble in feasting.
This practise of dininf* at hotels
hits grown up in recent years
and is due largely to the desire
to give the servanlsof the house
holds a holiday. The American
diplomatic attaches, expatriates
aud visitors will hold their
annual Christmas feast and
several fat New England turkeys
have already forfeited their lives
to tho end that the Americans
may partake of the llesh of the
national bird
Today was marked by a premature but none the less hearty
i ol. bralion.    All of lhe principle
streets   are  resounding to   the
voices  of   singing  clubs,    the
members, from lhe tups of otni
buses,  shouting out  Christmas
carols and other songs in tones
of mighty  volume if not much
melody.      Convent       Garden
had   a  tremendous   inllux   of
1 visitors.   Mistletoe  is  in   great
j demand, bul there  is little call
| for holly.
The mlllls have b"on overload-
'ed during llie last few days and
lhe poslmen  have hud to  employ cabs in many cases lo assist
i in the delivery of parcels.    It is

order it and attach it

done.   Merely
remove the screws ^
and take off the plate marked
"REMOVE FOR RESERVOIR" (see top illustration),
which provides an opening
for the hot air to come
