The teams will tangle again on

Impresstveness of the mass. The
soloists were Mra. A. L. McDermot,
Mrs. J. E. Kennedy and Miss Francis Drummond. The choir of this
church has been putting in some
hard and earnest practices of late.
We have been privileged to hear
good music at this church on previous occasions, but this year surpassed all previous attempts.
The large crib was greatly admlr-
I, Its figures being arranged according to the gospel narrative, while
overhead a large star recalled to the
kneeling people the Star ot Bethlehem.
The pastor prefaced his sermon by
thanking the Ladles of the parish and
the members of the Knights ot Columbus for their kind remembrance at
this Chrlstmastide.
The gospel of the day, the beautiful story of the Angel, who appeared
to the watching shepherds and announced the birth ot Jesus, Is found
only tn the' gospel according to St.
Luke. It Is perhaps unsurpassed In
simple beauty in all literature.
'At that time there went forth a
decree from Cesar Augustus, that the
whole world should be enrolled. This
enrolling was first made by Cyrlnus
the governor of Syria. And all went
to bs enrolled, everyone Into his own
city. And Joseph also went up from
Galilee, out of tbe city ot Nazareth
into Judea, to the city ot David, which
Is called Bethlehem, because he was
of the house and family ot David, to
be enrolled with.Mary his espoused
wife, who was with child. And lt
came to pass, that when they were
there, bee days were accomplished,
and she should be delivered. And she
brought forth her first-born son, and
wrapped him up ln swaddling clothes,
snd laid him tn a manger, because
there was no room for tbem In the
Inn. And tbere were in the same
country shepherds watching, and
keeping the night watches over tlieir
flock. And behold sn Angel ot the
Lord stood by them, and the brightness ot Ood shone round them; and
tbey feared with a great fear. And the
Angel said to them: Fear not; tor behold I bring you good tidings of
great Joy, that shall be to all tbe
people; for this day Ib born to you a
Saviour, wbo is Christ the Lord, in
the city ot David. And this shall be a
sign unto you: You shall find the Infant wrapped in swaddling clothes,

Happily tho wedding day was, as to;
the weather, all that the warmest
well-wisher could have asked, and
tlie home ot A. C. Blaine, wherein the
floral decorators were busy all morning with results that defiod criticism
at any point, was thronged. The decorative scheme was carried out almost exclusively with terns and tall
palms, although here and there amid
tbe gieen the grace of a chrysanthemum, pink and white, was seen deftly
placed at an effective point. A large
bell gracefully suspended from thc
celling, hung ln the center of the
room, under which the happy couple
pledged their troth.
Miss Reta Cameron, a young and accomplished musician, presided at the
piano, giving fine renditions of the
wedding march from Lohengrin and
Mendelssohn's march. After the entrance of the bridal party "The Voice
That Breathed O'er Eden" was most
effectively rendered.
Rev. W. K. Thomson, pastor ot the
Presbyterian church, officiated. Miss
Van Slyke, who was given away by
Mr. John Beaton, looked the embodiment of girlish loveliness in her wedding gown. Her bouquet wob of white
roses. t
She was attended by Mmi A. C.

has resided for a long time, and by a
most winsome ring bearer ln the per-,

looked very charming and sweet and.

The ceremony was followed by a reception, some twenty guests being

Society has done this (,'lirlstmas. To
express it ln terms of so many hundred Christmas presents is insufficient.
Truly, it Ib a grand thing to live—to
gaze with open eyes Into tho world, to
drink ln the pure air and enjoy the
sweet sunshine. It Is a good thing to
be alive, and it ls a good world to live
in, in spite of the abuse we arc fond
of giving It. This was the impression
created Christmas Eve as tlie Herald
man quietly witnessed the dispersing
of goods by that public-spirited and
most charitable body.
The kind hearted mombers of the
Sunshine Society will be glad to know
that they assisted Santa Claus very
greatly this year. They have the pleasure of knowing that they came to
the rescue ot little children, who,
through no fault of theirs, would
otberwise have had tlieir Christmas
marred because ot a continental war

they understand nothing.
It was the helping nand, the kindly
eye and the consequent sense of uplift that came to these people Just at
tho time they needed it most.
"This means the turn of our luck;
I know It does," said one little woman
with tears of gladnoss In her oyos, as
sho accepted the unexpected Christmas piesent. It was not merely the
oranges and potatoes, the tea, sugar,
bread, butter, roast meat and plum
pudding, the raisins and figs and nuts
she saw. Nor was lt merely the toys
and candy for the children. Beyond
all was the knowledge that thcro are

To distribute the Christmas presents
was no small undertaking. Organization and willing helpers were necessary. All cases reported to tbe Sunshine Society were looked after, without delay.

Being that a large number of Influential citizens
have been beselging me
with requests to become a
candidate for alderman I
have decided to allow my
name to go before the
Cranbrook electors for
consideration. I have
served as alderman before
and am willing to rely
upon my record for support by the electors. I
believe In economy in public affairs and this year it
will be more necessary
than ever before to emphasize this point. Look
up my record as alderman.
It will bear investigation.

Geo. F.Stevenson
After careful consideration I have decided to
place my name before the
electorate of Cranbrook.
In doing so I appreciate
the confidence of my
many friends in persuading me of the Importance
of sane, business, civic
government. As managing director of the largest
commercial company operating in the city, and
with a wide financial experience extending for
over a period of fourteen
years, I feel reasonably
sure my services as an
alderman will meet with
the approval of the ratepayers of the City of Cranbrook.
Yours truly,
A. C. Bowness
Having been solicited by a large number of the ratepayers to stand again as a candidate for Mayor, I wish to
announce that I will olTer myself as a candidate and I
solicit the support of lhe voters for the honorable ofllce of
Mayor of the City of Cranbrook.
I do this feeling that it Ib the desire of a majority of
the ratepayers and voters that a change should be made in
the administration at the City Hall.
Everyone knows my past record as Alderman and
Mayor and upon this record I respectfully solicit your
cordial support.
I have no political ambitions to gratify or axes to
grind, and no sect, section or individual has any strings
on me,
I believe that the business of the city is the business
of the ratepayers and should be conducted ln an efficient
manner, in the interets ot the city as a whole, that all
business should be open and above board and that pull,
politics and religion should have no consideration.
In asking for your votes for Mayor I also ask for
your votes for the six councllmen supporting me, four of
whom have had varied experience of from two to seven
years on the council of this city, the other two beiug men
of unquestioned business ability. If you see fit to elect me
as Mayor for the incoming term, I shall endeavor, with
their assistance to carry on every legitimate public undertaking for the advancement of Cranbrook, I will give my
time and attention to the affairs of the city and will endeavor to see that the public Interest is in every way carefully safeguarded.
Yours Faithfully,
Municipal Elections
To the Electors:
Knowing the financial
condition of the city at the
present time and the general conditions which surround the city, it has been
with extreme reluctance
that I have yielded to the
entreaties of many electors to run for alderman
this year and it is only
upon a platform of strictest economy that I hereby
announce my candidacy.
I served for two years as
alderman and know the
necessities which confront
us at this time. Therefore,
tf I am elected alderman,
my time will be devoted to
conserving the city's interests. My record for two
years as alderman wlll
bear your scrutiny, and
upon . this record I respectfully solicit your support.
Yours truly,

At the urgent request
of a large number of electors I have decided to announce to the public my

lady has passed away.
She was most interesting and companionable even In the days of her
physical failure and friends delighted to visit her sick room because of the charm of her personality.

mother's loving care. They are Alfred, Wilmer and Kenneth. Mrs. Percy

old country.
The news of Mrs. Jolliffo's death
will be received with genuine sorrow
throughout this district by her numerous friends—and they wcre many.
Mr. and Mrs. Jolllffe came to Cranbrook a number of years ago, residing
for a long time cast of the town on
a farm, where they had ono of thc
prettiest little places in tho Cranbrook district. Mr. Jolllffe up to a
couple of years ago conducted a
butcher shop on Norbury avenuo, selling out to the 41 Market Co.
