A Christmas Story ot local Interest written for tbe Herald by
B. <i. Hamilton, ot Invermere,
H. C.
The sun ot a mid-winter day had set
behind tlie high mountains ot tbe
Brisco range, its last lingering rays
whicli hud given a rose tint to the
tops o£ tbe mountains tbat hemmed
in the canyon on tbo eastern side ol
the Kootenay river had disauiwared,
and all that remulned ot a day that
was past waa the apple green tinge In
tho sky lo the northwest. Still
Larry Skee, tliu trapper, was tar trom
iiis headQuarters cabin — the ond
tii his week's round, his resting place—he could not call it home—
Ull the lilting o£ his tni^a would once
more call him out.
The apple green faded from the
northern -sky, the evening star
came out, aud stars les8 bright twinkled throughout tho heavens long before lie reached tlie big meadowB at
tlie southern end of which his cabin
lay. Thamp, tramp, tramp, and his
bear paws crunched on the deep, dry
snow which had fallen.
Tho week's catch from his traps
was light, and tho food which he had
packed on his trapper's cradle strapped to Iiis back was eaten and gone -so
his paco was good. He had been
able to keep up so it did not take
long to cover Uio threo mile stretch
of frozen meadow.
The cabin was well sot and sheltered in ono of tho many clumps of spruce
common to thc neighborhood. The
top logs of tlie walla on either
■side and tho crown log which supported tiie wedgo roof had been left to
..-xiend far out in front and with
the roof's covering of rough shakes
and mud formed a gablo which gave
the modest .place an artistic finish
frum a front view. Now the snow covered tlie roof with a mantlo adding
materially to the chances of keeping
out tlie cold whlcb would surety come
as early winter passed on to middle
stages.
The casual glance of his practiced
eyo told Larry that all was as he had
left lt beforo starting on his rounds.
Not overly fatigued from his walk
the trapper entered his cabin, and
soon had a blazing lire on the earth
hearth, brewed a strong pot of tea,
witli which he washed down several
of tlie camp bannocks from his larder. The night was still early so as he
lay on his bunk Larry read once again tho story of Longfellow's Evangeline. A copy of this poem and a
Bible were Die only books he ever
packed In with him. The tlrst he had
brought on account of tho sentiment
woven In it about his old home on
the Minus Basin, and the latter because It brought back memories of
his dear mother, the teachings she
had instilled and the manner of life
sho had striven to have him lead-
Each of these past remembrances
wero at times far from him, but when
deprived by his manner of living from
other pleasures thero was yet afforded him the sentimental lasting Joy
from tliese of which nothing could deprive him- Before the fire burned
too low ho read again tho parable
of tho Prodigal Hon. He i.-iusea
slowly from leading to reverie, thinking of life, nothing definite, nothing
real, as ho lay on his bunk of fir
boughs, with their covering ot skins
und blankets, until drowsiness ever-
-ame all thought, and the day closed
In fitful a sleep.
Meanwhile outsldo tho temperature
had dropped; tho moon came up trom
Mi ind the ragged, jagged peaks to
tho east and shed hor brilliant light
ovor forost, stream, mountain and
river. Tho big meadow lay white and
HUH as Uio frozen surface of a lake.
At Intervals tho fleotfng form of a
rahbit passed from copse to copse,
or smaller vermin moved more slowly across patches of snow; owls hoot-
ed trom distant trees", coyotes howled
dismally from thick bush near to ths
edge, but except for those, and the
weird cracking of timber and other
rounds of nature, all was quiet as
Lorry lay and dozod. His waB not a
heavy bleep.
• • • •
Many years before the incident Just
ended, closo to tho plney-clad lands
which border near Dlgby, Bay of Fun-
dy, a modest fisherman with wife and
children lived in a small shanty home
near the sandy shore close to where
tho high tides ot tlie Bay of Fundy
daily raised, lowered, and combed ths
beach, ensily seen from tho windows
of the medest home. The father followed in tho footsteps of his forebears — n fisherman pure and simple
—fearing God, honoring the King,
voicing his sentiment loyally, but
loudly, on that side of politics to
which he had heen predestinated.
Motlier—she was everything that a
mother should bo. Not a mother's duty to hor family was ever missed,
thoso were her Joy, her pastime and
her llfo. Frugality, observance of
religion, loyalty to home and country
formed somo of tho bricks and stones
of the family structure which she
built, hut above all other temporal re-
(lulrements, was taught tho citizenship
Which counts not to bo a shirker, but
Active.

The Christmas Guests
*
EACE and Goodwill, thc Christmas guests, came over the hill from the
Land of Dreams into the city of Once-a-year at dusk on Christmas
Eve, as was tlieir wont.
Peace was a maiden beautiful beyond words, with honey-gold hair
curling away from a calm white brow above clear eyes wherein lay
the light of a great rest-fulness, and her breath was sweet with the scent of heartsease.
Goodwill was a happy-faced boy, with a light step, a merry song, and a laugh like
the peal of silver bells. The streets of Once-a-year were full of hurrying people bent
on strange errands. No one passed Peace without a wistful look into her lovely
face, and many hands were outstretched to detain her. Peace would gladly have
stopped and made friends with thc passers-by, for she and Goodwill felt very strange
and lonely in this city of Once-a-year, but often the hands put forth were so full of
self interest that they could do no more than brush her elusive gossamer gown and
she did not feel their touch.
Some took time to return Goodwill's hearty greeting, but others passed him
with a frown and would have none of him.
Peace and Goodwill stopped at a wonderful mansion, every window of which
wasagleam with light, and from which stole the strains of sweet music.
"What a beautiful home," said Peace, "surely there will he a welcome for us
here."
They knocked on thc door and a servant opened it They looked into a great
salon, hung with priceless tapestries and marvelous pictures, in which a throng
of richly dressed men and women were dancing, laughing, and feasting.
"He will teach you to play the great Christmas game "Love thy Neighbor as
thyself,' " said Peace.
Instantly they all drew back. Each one looked at his neighbor. Then they
all shook their heads; no one wanted to play that game. So Goodwill took Peace
gently by the hand and led her far away from the revellers in the wonderful mansion.
A long, long way they walked, knocking at many doors, seeking a place in
which to abide. There was always a welcome for Peace, but no one was found who
wanted to entertain "Goodwill." So as they could not be separated they wandered
on together.
At last they found themselves on a dark and narrow street where the houses
were small and old and shabby. A light shone in only one window, and the night
wind creeping through a broken pane lifted a corner of thc ragged curtain so that
they could see into a room. They saw a thin, bent old woman, in a faded gown,
sitting by a rickety table counting over and over again five small coins.
They knocked on the door and the old woman opened it.
"We are Peace and Goodwill, the Christmas Guestb," they said: "Shall wc
abide In this house?"
The old woman bade them enter.
"My house is poor and bare and I have but little food," she said, "but if you
will tarry in so humble a place you are welcome. "
'Goodwill will teach you to play a Beautiful Christmas game, and you will
forget that your house is poor and bare," said Peace.

"We are Peace and Goodwill, the Chrirtmas Guests," they said. "Shall we
abide in this house?"
A woman, seeing them, left the throng of revellers and came forward with
white, bejewelled hands outstretched to Peace.
"Peace! Peace!" she cried, "Vou have come at last! I have waited such
long, weary years for you. Every time I added a jewel to my casket I expected
you; every time I bought a great painting I thought you would come. I bought
magnificent gowns in which to receive you; and had the most exquisite music played
tn woo you. I have travelled around the world looking for you, and once I thought
1 saw you coming over thc threshold with Love, but it was only a shadow. But
now you have come and I will never let you go, See, I have a beautiful home here,
I have everything—everything—except Peace. I need only you to make life complete."
"I wil! stay gladly if you will receive Goodwill also," said Peace, gently.
"Goodwill, who is he?   I know nothing about Goodwill," said the woman.
"Goodwill is my twin brother; wc are inseparable," answered Peace.
"There is no room for Goodwill here," said the woman.
"Could he not take the place of your servant Selfishness?" suggested Peace.
"Alas, Selfishness is no longer my servant, he is my master," whispered the
woman sadly.
"Goodwill would teach you to play a beautiful game," urged Peace,
The other revellers, hearing this, crowded around.
"A game, a game, we dearly love a game!" they cried. "What game will
Goodwill teach us to play?"
"I am too tired and old to play games," said thc old woman. "And besides
I must go to the house of my neighbor, who is even poorer than I, and bring her
and her little children into my home. They shall warm themselves at my hearth,
they shall share my food, and I will give to them my five coins. My neighbor is
one who has sinned and I will tell her of the Star in the East which lights the way
to forgiveness, and speak to her words of encouragement and hope."
"Why, that will be playing thc Christmas Game," cried Goodwill in delight
"Wc shall abide in this house," said Peace, softly.
ABOUT CHRISTMAS.
There are lots of interesting things connected with Christmas Day—its meaning
and significance, its observance in other countries, its symbols and superstitions,
and thc date itself is of interest in an historical way. Many facts have been gathered about this great world celebration. Do you know what the word "Christmas"
really means? The word is derived from thc word "Christ," and the Saxon word
"Mocsse" which means mass, or feast; and so Christmas means the feast of Christ
and in honor of His birth—in the hope of perpetuating His great spirit of love and
charity and friendship is it celebrated today. The celebration of thc day as a great
holiday dates back to pagan times, when the Winter Solstice was observed. Scandinavian mythology tells us that during thc Yuletide, which falls at this same time
of thc year, there was a peace among thc gods and that all strife and work ceased.
This Scandinavian idea combined with thc old pagan celebration is perhaps the
underlying thought in our observance of a holiday when work is stopped and peace
is supposed to reign over all.
««1
'VT*    If %M   wi9 Over two thousand years ago the Master, whose birth we celebrate on Christmas
U-OiROW |H6     Day, called to the fishermen who were to be his disciples, and spread the glad
. tidings to all people. "FOLLOW ME"
Down, through the ages the call has come to all mankind, joyfully accepted by many.
* It bas bstn tht -custom of this Company, as these days of wonderful significance approach, to pause in its
busy uareer nnd wish for its many patrons a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
Th«ce seasonal grestings we repeat with much earnestness and sincerity, confident that all who heed
the call "FOLLOW HE" will experience the most joyful Christmas and enter upon a glad NEW YEAR, fraught
with ths most wonderful possibilities—a message the world's aceptance of which means a universal brotherhood
of lovs, a precursor of— "PEACE ON EARTH, GOOD WILL TOWARD MEN."

THE SPIRIT OF GIVING
They are coming out in
droves at tliis lime on their annual drive against the age-old
custom ot Christmas giving.
They are the devotees of the
"S. P. U. G." cult. Handed together by a common affliction,
these hypochondriacs—for are
they aught else?—seem to stand
out at this season, raising an
inharmonious chord in the
general chorus of goodwill*.
The members of this intangible
organization seem more or less

increased school accommodation
which ims been occupying the attention ot the School Trustee* for the
lust few monltis.
The present Central School which
was built In 1909 has t«'» classrooms
and now accommodates 475 pupils.
The South Ward School wllh iwo
classrooms has over 100 pupllfl. There
are also 49 pupils in Idle primary department who are being taught iu the
building opposite Uio Queen's hotel
on Baker street, formerly used at* a
photographic studio.
As was JVated In last weeks issue of
The Herald, the Board is now endeavoring to secure an extia rooni In
some suitable building for the accoin
modatlon of the overflow from Con
tral aud South Ward schools and tho
influx of new scholars who attain
school age '.iiis next term. But this
appears impossible owing to present
icarcity of vacant premises near the
school.
The need therefore for extra school
buildings i-s apparent to all and considering the time required from the
dai.e of passing of a by-law to raise
money for school purposes to the final completion of a new building, it becomes Imperative that measures bt

Wtli that foresight and careful Intuition which characterizes the methods of all progressive citizens the
members of the School Board have

to the consideration of three separate
proposals to en largo the Central
School;
First, consideration was given to
the adding of itwo two-storey wings
to the north end of tha school, adjacent to Leitch Street, each wing to
contain two classrooms.
Secondly it was suggested tlmt an

school, but owing to Che greater fire

After all, what counts at
Christmastime is not what we
give, but the spirit which embodies the gift. Whether costly or inexpensive, useful or

as a mere empty vanity if the

So it is that the "Spugs,"

OF
OUR CONTEMPORARIES
Who Will Lead The Opposition!
The Progressive party being the
largest numerically of tho two opposition groups, Mr. Crerar can, It lie
desires, fill the .position of official ap-
posion leader, with whicli goes $10,000
salary and $4,000 sessional indemnity.
Should lie elect to head the recognfz-
ed opposition, he would at once be
placed in active hostility to tliu Lib
era! Party, which In platform pledges*,
has been considered closely related
to the Progressives. That he would
place himself in such an attitude
Is to be questioned- He may conclude
to remain in the cross bench position
followed in the last Parliament, supporting the government when it act
in accord with Liberal principles, and
opposing It when it acts otherwise
Lethbrldge Herald.
The British Premier
Probably no other man has faced ho
many complicated problems as Lloyd
George. His life has been a constant
turmoil. He has been bo assailed
that, as he himself has lightly remarked, " a change of trouble Is in the
nature of a rest." Energizing the
British people to win the war, opposing an intrenched machine that
Hiating unity of command, fired at by
tho ABquithians from tlie front and
by the Northcliffe .press from the rear;
at one hour fighting thc great British labor host and the next clubbing
its opponents into accepting settle

then with Brland; distrusted by the
dominant social elements of Great
Biitain, and all the while compelled,
on nn instant's notice, to repel
onslaught In tho house of commons—
here is, indeed, an exemplification of
the strenuous life- To como through

Douglas MacLean in his latest Para-'
mount-lnco comedy, "Passing Thru,"
which Is to be shown at the Rex next

Miss Bellamy was weaned away
from the speaking s:ago by Thomas
II. Ince, who recognized in her petite
beauty, her vivid personality, and her
rare dramatic talents the requisites
of a cinema »;ar of the first order.
At the time Mr. Ince induced her to
sign a contract to appear exclusively
in his production sho had just completed a highly successful season on
Broadway as Ithe "Dream Girl" of William Gillette's production of Sir. J.
M. Barrle's "Dear Brutus."
Prior to that engagement, in which
Miss Bellamy's performance commanded the highest praise of the Manhattan critics, she had appeared in
the title roles of "Pollyanua" and "Peg
O' My Heart.''
Miss Bellamy Is nineteen, was born
in Texas, and is 'the daughter of c
university professor of English lltera

ceived under the tucJngc of her tether, and has resulted In a wide knowledge of Ithe English drama, which ims

The name had always inveigled.
It went Into the prime plnco as the
names Llano KsUcado, the Barren
Lands, Land of Little Sticks. When,
by the excellent goodness of God
(as It seems to ine), 1 found myself,
on a late duly evening, actually close
enough to have Nixon, the long, lean
local guide to that wonderland, indicate, if not the range of thc hang-.
i*1!? glaciers, the direction of our'
travel to it, I could scarcely believe
my good fortune. I felt as one wlf
dreams, at any moment It seemed,
1 might awaken and find it was
not so—that the light of the hotel
room behind me (we sat on the
verandah discussing the morning's
start) wu not really streaming out
on a pad at paper on Nixon's knee;
that hU face was not all a big
shadow, save the chin, under a high
cow-puncher hat; that he was only
u figure in a dream, before a dream
hotel; that only in a dream was he
saying to me: "And what do you
folks like to drink, tea or coffee?
And in the way of fruit, do you
prefer pears or apricots or peaches?"
All evening I could hardly believe I
was going, even though I laid out
my khaki pants and leggings and
a Mackinaw coat before turning In
that night.
Very early I was wakened, to the

Ing aboye my bed, by the call of a
loon. I was indubitably there —
where the loon calls; and I counted
over some of the causes of my happiness, Tbe call of the loon; the
scent of sage-brush and of balsam;
the smell of horses in the open air,
horses whose tails are not docked
wind-wrinkled lakes dropt among
the luxuriant Selkirke or the austere
Rockies; and lakes that are like
polished jade (to filch a simile from
a little sheaf of songs I came across
the other day called: "Ilie Canadian
Calendar"); and still blue lakes
where the ripples from a canoe give
to the surface the appearance of
watered silk; and the smell of wood-
smoke. Enough said. I was a trifle
excited as we started out from Invermere in an automobile along a
wagon-road to the place where
Nixon and the horses were to await
us. June bugs and yellow grasshoppers veered and crackled. Dragon-flies darted past, Once the wind1
held upon the wind-screen till we
took a -curve and be could flutter
off. We left behind us a pennon of
dust, bobbing away from the hotel

In a meadow beside a bend of Horse

cabins, the horses waited for us. We
came round a twist of the road,
brushing cottonwood and poplar and
 log _,„  ...a   trvtyiml   HIH]
willow branches and, stopping, heard
the tinkle of a horse bell; and there
they were, Nixon, with his foot
against a pack hauling on a rope,
in the act of completing tbe work
known as "throwing the diamond
hitch."
Going to the Hanging Glaciers Is
as good as getting there, astounding
spectacle though they be. It is an
unforgettable Journey. Walking In
streets Is an empty undertaking
compared with riding through tbe
Mountains, despite the shows in all
the shop-windows and the passing
luces. Time is in Oxford Street.
The urgent moment is on Wsll
Street. Eternity is in the pass of
Horse Thief Creek, where are no
clocks. That is the feeling: it is
into Eternity that we ride there. For
that cause, all the way I found it

hard to believe. The impression persisted that I might awake from sleep
and an exquisite dream, that I might
awaken to hear the clatter of street-
sweepers, honk of late (or very
early) taxis, and that Nixon's big
cow-puncher hat showing ahead was
only out of a story read when a boy.
To begin with there were bridges

appearance of resting on a peak of

of the witching hour, an actuality of
the quality of light.    It was unhe-

like a star drawn by a man in th»

planet, even as I watched, ignoring
the cold of morning at my tent
.flap, went adrift from the p."ik;
| it was left alone in u wash of blue,
then dwindled in size. The tremendous moment was over. I turned
back and crept under the blankets
to warm me—cold and happy—and
was wakened again by the clip of an
axe, and a crackling noise, anil

camp-fire newly tended, ond Nixon
washing his hands carefuiiy, preparatory to cooking breakfast. By

up. Weird tales of '.he Immense
possibilities which It offered, of
the boundless grass fields where tho
buffalo and the Indian roamed; of the
natural .products fallow to tne settler,
awaiting the strong arm, tho active
brain and tho willing hand to develop. Surge by surge, wave hy wave,
preceded by ripples, the news spread,
followed and re-followed across the
intervening wilds, over tho province
of Ontario, over that of Quebec,
through the forests and fields of New
Brunswick, across the Bay of Fundy,
out on to the peninsula of Nova Scotia
and still in wireless waves uway out
to the fur fields across the Atlantic
ocean.
Tho call of the West grew In
strength and acted as a magnet to
tho young men of ambition und ability; to the young men of vigorous
traits, yet not settled in life. Away
to the west they moved in varying
numbers, sometimes as North West
Mounted Police, sometimes as mercantile persons, hut the larger
numbers moved to gain a farm of their
own, one free from the pioneer labors
of clearing of the forest, one they did
not require to buy, one that would bo
given th.em free for the occupation
down to Fort Whoop Up. Hero was
a chance for the first stugo of a further western journey, an Opportunity
uot to be missed. By diligent application at the freight office where ho
was known a chauce team returning

At the Rex Theatre, Wednesday and Thursday of next week,
December 28 and 29
To iho9 older, determined, well set
young man, this was neither expensive nor difficult. Lany Sltee, bent
on the move with plenty of time before him worked his way slowly
through the timber woods of New
Brunswick, the forests of Quebec and
tho Upper Ottawa. It was easy to
earn transportation by boat as a deckhand from Colllngwood, on Georgian
Bay, to Prince Arthur's Landing on
Lake Superior.   From there the pro-
      west    was    slower.    Duluth,
Brainerd Minnesota and other places
were much harder to reach except by
payment of money.    From his home
in Nova Scotia till his arrival In Winnipeg was a matter of many months.
Yet the land movement liafl not started in earnest. The disturbing times
ot the Metis Rebellion and the subsequent unrest of the plains    Indians
delayed the execution of the Indian
treaties and the surveying    ot   the
prairie Into areas ot    square   mile
blocks was hindered.   Not a farmer,
save to obtain land, but now a rover
by Instinct there was nothing so material as the call of the greater, wide
west,   so   tarry took to freighting.
•      •     *      •
The placer gold movement of California had come and gone; the same
feverish excitement had vfsited    tho
Cariboo and was waning.   Occasional
washings were being made on    the
North Saskatchewan river.   Tiring uf
freighting at tho close of   a season
there  came to him once  more  the
western call, this time the lure of tlto
mountains.   Extra bull team driven,
at times were needed to freight from
Edmonton to Fort Calgary or   even
Years, and years of Larry's Ute hud
passed between the start from homo
.uid where, in the first picture he lay
on his hunk lu thu trapper hut ol Uio
Upper Kootenay. Ou that lilght his
light si uiihurs had left him to dream,
u review as iu a half awahe, half
.sleep condition, many of the events
f a llfo well intended, tilled with
good basic pilticlples, bat one which
hod often been shaken and one true tu
the saying thai u moving stone gathers no moss. Two strung, underlying
factors remained to him — honesty
of purpose and loyalty to political
convictions, ills disappointed thoughts
over oucc, and even once again,
Picked up his doings uud ln wide
periods of time carried him along until tho review of his life's wanderings had brought him back once more
to "God's Country," under tho flag
he loved so woll. Again it was tho
desire to earn that had guided Mm,
for in his far fields the stories of the
later placer findings of Wild Horse
Creek and the possibilities of Southern British Columbia, rich in natural
products as a whole, now drew him.
Up he came in his real life through
tho States, into Idaho, into British
Columbia, and to Wild Horso Crook.
The main line uf the Canadian Pacific
Railway had not yet been built
through the mountains, and Wild
Horso Creek, Galbralth'B Ferry and
St- Joseph's Prairie were but places
ot name and of no particular moment. They had had u heyday, but
now all were more or less quiet aud
normal, but even as such they formed
the centres ot trado for all that man's
nature craves. Not very much to
hold, but a centre on which to revolve.
So Larry had revolved again and
again till this particular winter aud
this .particular night found him rather out of his orbit.
In 1883 Interest was beiug keenly
felt over the onward march of    tho
head of steel as tbo Syndicate pushed
the work of construction on tho transcontinental railway around the uorth
■bore- uf Luke Superior, aud began lu
parts  to build  the  prairie  sections-
Tho following year saw    It heading
through the mountains to join forces
with tho steel head from the western
end.   As it was Golden City, a tented
place, near wliere Kicking Horse Pius
spread out Into the valley of the Col-
umbla-Kootenay rivers, commenced to
take on some Importance and became
u local centre.    Most of its supplies,
legitimate and/Otherwise,   came up
from the south, up the broad valley
and th- rivers which traversed them.
■   risk   run   by   carriers,    often
with largo sums of money on their
pei-suim, und others venturing around
singly or In pairs, carrying wealth,
und tho tendency to smuggle goods
across tiio boundary from tho United
States, without tho hindrance uf paying duiy. Induced tho Federal Government In 1 SSI to place a small detachment uf North Wesi Mounted Police
at Uulbr.iilh's Ferry.   These were to
maintain thu law and oi dor'ior which
tbelr  naiiio stood,  to  ride frott)    the
international boundary oil    tlie south
to patrol north to the point of meeting with Motilities from Golden City.
"Sam" Steele was in command,   It is
a matter of  Canadian  history  as  to
how   well  this  officer  sustaiued  tho
credit of the "Force-"   Tho log buildings of his encampment wero built uu
the bluff, or eminence, which covers
tho junction of tho famous Wild llor^e
Creek and the Kootenay river.   What
better than In honor uf his name the
new Settlement should be called Furt
Steele, the name of a great man. This
ii is today,  lt is not the Fort Steele of
the early SO's, nor yot of the middle
SlO's,  but thoso days aro gone even
for frontier places in the Dominion of
Canada, but Fort Steele ii is and Fort

Tho longest night must close and
the diiwu o[ day appear, so this nlgbt
with its fitful pussages wus closing
when Lurry awakened from hia rnlnd-
wauderiugs. He ruse from his bunk,
cut long, heavy shavings from a* stick
Of gummy pine, hurriedly prepared himself a meal, then once more
filled his tra-pper'-a cradle, put bis
bear paws upon bis feet and again
started on his round—a walk of eighty
miles, forty each way—to circle bis.
line of traps on either side of tbe river, which would laud him once more
in the desolate but comfortable cabin
be was about to leave.
Still  he went    on    and    tbe    days
passed into weeks until a full three
months bad sped Its way. The length-
j oning days told of the need to com-
| incnco the trek to the nearest market,
i t lalbraith's    Ferry.    The    operation
| would be oue ot some length for the
valuable furs bad to be carefully put
into .packages, then carried by easy
Stages and cached safely from animals;    provisions   bad    been    pu'l in
depots the year before;    all   to   be
finished ere tho snow cither became
too deep and soft for easy travelling
by   day   or   had   lost'  iLself   entirely
the open patches.   It was a. weary occupation at the best, but It bad to be
done and there was no way to avoid
tt.
Thus many years during the man/
winters, were filled the otherwise idle
moments of Larry Skee's life. Summer waa largely passed in spending
tho earnings of the winter in the fas-

Larry was still a sojourner in the
neighborhood aud to him iu off seasons Steele always look good, even If
tho nearest placo which formed his
home was "lUiunn'-r's Fait," or a night
spent on "The Bottom." Mis months
and his days were going by; his man-
r of living si'll unchanged. An event had, however, transpired with tlte
construction of a main road from the
international boundary through Fort
Steele and up to Golden City, lt was
this. Travelling from his trapping
haunts in tlie Kootenay valley bad become ouster and did not take so much
time. Once tlie journey dowu the
Valley of the Kooteney Lad been made
from heodquarter's cabin to the settlement at Canal Flats time could be
allowed for a rest and an easy travel
by stage.
The spring of 181)— came about as1
usual-     The winter's catch had been
good.   Tlie full effect of the" Yukon
rush was still In these parts and the
price ot furs was high.   On his trip
to "Steele'' Larry had first journeyed
Canal Flats.   Winter wai% lato   in
ending, and conditions being   favorable time was taken ami time was
s|ient  in   making   progress  thus   far,
so it was well on in March before the
furs  were  placed  on  tho  counter of
the Fort Steele Trading Company, and
at a goodly figure passed from Lurry
to tlieir new owners.    A short rest
must needs bo taken, and a new outfit purchased for the summer.   Then
the balance of cash—thero being no
chartered bank—left in safe hands.
This done all was ready for the departure to the bills.   Even before that
time rumors of a coming election filled the air.   For the first ttmo tbe local coalition  government was to be
done away  with  and  representative
govornment on party lines Introduced.
Never before tn all his many years of
wanderings had tlie word sounded so
good to Larry-    At no tlmo so dear us
this sound of uu approaching fight,
lt was as the sound of the trumpet
to tho war horse, the smell of buttle
In his nostrils. Away to tho hills Skee
went, but towards the latter end of
June when tho smoke of battle started
to rise in a cloud from the settlement
about Steele, and far away echoes of
I approaching  contests came Into    the
j bills and valleys around Larry could
control  his  inclinations    uo  longer.

O'Malley whips the yellow cur with

Eva Novak as Hose, riding a fast
horse, swings O'Malley from tlie

makes good a thrilling escape before

about to pull the rope which would

O'Malley ropes bis enemy as tbe

of the treacherous Jaeger and thc recovery ot his own horse.

Tbe days preceding tliu contest in
Fort Steelo did not ,pass in rioting und
drunkenness, but simply in that hop-
py condition in which many find themselves when tbey [orogathor and as
good fallows meet together.
True to early convictions, thirsting
for liolllicul blood, Larry was never
more iu bis element and of oil tbo
liad-to-bo-wlnnerH lie was the most determined. To do an evil deed, an unkind action, to break one of the Ten
Commandments might bo ull right
if you lived ou the other sldo of tbo
Suez, according to Skee, but here lu
Fort Steele all that was done openly to
win tho contest had to be done honestly done, und if it could not bo done
oponly but could be done palltically,
it bad to be done- Tbis formod tbo
basis of his political decalogue, the
Ten Commandments, und which side
of tbe Suez Canal you might happen
to be on dldnot matter.

But what tho maitter, I'm still In

Kind ye, I'm nc' gaun sae faur as
tao say that you awfu* slaughter o'

tell lt tae a'body, but thero I** nae
deny In' that tho election was nispihtn'
malr nor less than anlther Bannock-
burn turned upside doon. Ay. it waa
that! Nae malr am I gaun tae say
that I dldna keep gey close tae the

I wonder if ye hae noticed thut

him till efter the reek o the election
had a' blawn awa.
But fate wulled Itheiwisc. I've
noticed, mony a time, that fate isna
ony ways blato in Its ups ttin' o' oor
bit plans, as witness my meetln' wi'
HamiBh, the ae mon I was daein' my
level best tae avoid.
Aweel, tae gang back tao my story
I'll hae tae tell ye that I was gettln'
a wee bittie tired o' bein' cooped up
In the hoose, an' It bein' yin o' the finest days a bjdy could wush for, 1
thocht a bit daunder efter the mall
wadna dae me ony lifting,. Sae I pit
on my things and awa 1 gaed. I wasna thinkin* o' Hamish, of for -that
maitter ony ither body, but was julsl
saunterin' along enjoyin' the bonnie
day rarely when a'at ylnco I hears
a mon cryln' my nnnio. In spite o'
masel I looked up.
"Mlchty!" sez I tao masel, "If it
isna daft Hielan'dman Hamish MacTaviah. Nae doot nva, I'm In for't
noo! Gin I dinna hae tae mecht the
election a' awre again then my name
isna Saundy Bonnteburn. May the
niel rin awa wi' a' Liberals, mair especially that red-helded gomerll
stnundin' there gloatin' like a fox
owre a fat hen-"
"Hoots, Saundy!" sez Hamish, "I
was feart o' ye gaun by wil hoot pass-
in' the time o' day. Is't no' a bonnie
nioniln'?"
"I canna say no tae that It ls as ye
say, a fine bricht day. An' 1 micht
say in addition tiiat I'm hopln' that
you an' your folk are a' weel. But I
maunna bide owre lang for the wife
has sent me doon for the mail an'
mair than likely she'll be wenryiu' for
uio tae get back"
"Havers!" sez he, "she isna faShln'
horso! that muckle. Come awa intao
tbe hoooe, mon, I hae sometliin' I
want ye tae see." Wi' that ho cam'
doon aff the steps an' grippit me by
the alrm. "Come ben. Saundy, I hevna had a guid crack wi' ye for guid-
neas kens hoo lang."
Soein' I was captured by the daft
lllolnmlman 1 kenned brawly that
there wns uacthing left for mc Uie
dao but pit on as bravo ft front as was
possible undor tho circumstances, although a' tho tlmo I was expectin
him tae Qpen up on politics au' gie
mo tbo big lunch.
"Walt a wee," sez he, as ho went
oot o' the room, "I winna bu inair
ih;ui a meenlt awa, an' gin I dinna
surprise ye when 1 come back, then
nay ther yo nor me aro trne Scotsmen*.."
ln a Jiffy back ho cam' briugin' wl'
him a bottlo an' glessos oa a bit tray.
That's somethln'," sez ho as he set
doon the tray on the table.
It Is that," sez 1, "an' a welcome
sicht It Is. Ye've been invcstln', 1
see."
"Ye wimia get the like o' that at the
vendor's, Saundy, for that bottle there
isna ony common sock. It has embodied in it a' the virtue* thut mak's
guid whuskey the crownln' glory o'
a' auld Scotland's products, Nae hetter liquor than that contained in yon
bottle ever wimpled through the
worm o' a Btill."
Wl' that 1 lifted the bottle for tao
gie lt a closer Inspection- "It Isna—
tt canna be—save's, Hamish," sez I,
this—this lo TaliHker'." i
"Ay, it's Talisker', a' tho road frae
tbo bonnie wee Isle o' Skye- 'Twas
my brither sent it tae mo for Christmas—a halo caHe o't. An' noo ye an'
mo are gaun tao sample lt for auld
sakes sake. Saundy, ye'r verra guid

tao cbeod yo'r hurt when  a' things

"The sentiment is mutual," soz I,
as I cllnh I raj ■, les i agaiust his.
"Here's tae *-' true Scotsmen, an'
may i-oi.fusion seize their enemies."
"Noo, Saundy," sez Hnml-.li. when
we had bbitlc-J i_oit.el6' efter tuk-aff
oor dram." I wad like ye tae look at
this." Wi' that—gey mysterious Ilk-;
—he fumbled aboot in a drawer o'
the table. "Wull ye look that owre
an' tell mo what ye think o't "
"It's somo kind o' a list, is it no?"
sez 1. takin' the thing in my haund.
"Wheesht," aez he. "I dinna want
the bairns tae hear. It's a list
a'rlcht, a bit memorandum o' tlie
things I'm gaun tao buy for Christ
mas."
It's a gey lengthy yin," sez I,"
"It'll tak' twa or throe pennies awl
before ye are dune wi' It, I'm think
in*."
-Aweel, it's wortii it. Saundy, "That
drum an' whustla at the tap is for wee
Ian, an' the doll an1 tho ither bit
Clings below it are for Flora- She's
hen wrltin' letters tae Santa Claus
for a doll for a lang time."
"iiu ay, bairns uro aye like that,

I thohct ye had only the.twa bairn**,

"That," sez he, his voice takin' on
a curious softness, "is for a woe lad-

to hold meetings letter at other points
In the mining districts of tho province, Hitch as Oranbrook. At a previous meeting it had been decided to
call tho association the Mining Association or Eastern British Columbia
but It was thought (that Mining Association of Interior llrltlsh Columbia
would more adequately describe the
territory served, aud this was the
name finally adopted.
The purpose of the organization is
to protect tho Industry from ill advised legislation, and generally lto do
anything that will stimulate Interest
aud educate legislators in the problems and needs of the industry- Por
BUOh a purpose wholehearted co-oper-
atlon of the mining men is needed and
It was decided that tho membership
fee would he purely nominal to gain
this object, and that any one owning
a mineral claim or representing an Incorporated ownership would be eligible.

were  adopted.

the association had moro than justl

It was decided fto telegraph to the
Hon. W. L. Mackenzie King as follows:
"In forming your cabinet this association would respectfully urge your
consideration of tho appointment of R.
K. Beattie* member-elect for East
Koolenay, British Columbia, for tho
portfolio of minister of mines- Mr.
Beattie comes from a rich mineral
district, has been actfevly engaged In

supper recess the Society's orchestra
again appeared lu four delightful selections, every ono of which elicited
greal: enthusiasm and appleause. The
chief feature of these four selections
was undoubtedly "The Mocking Bird,"
played as a violin solo by the Director, Mr. Edwards, accompanied by the
entire orchos'.ni. Mr. Edward's masterly rendition of this number Is worthy of tlto highest praise. Following
this ithe full orchestra rendered "The
Chlckets' Dance." Mr. Edwards then
rendered a violin solo entitled "Melody," acompanled by Mrs. MacPhor*
son, which was a treat to lovers of
refined music. The closing number
of tho midnight program was "The
Soldiers" Chorus," from Faust, and
although a test for many a larger nnd

with a very creditable degree of efficiency, and received well earned applause.
After supper the dance was resumed and the merry function con-
linued unabated until tho closing number .

STEEL INDUSTRY CAN
ONLY BE BUILT UP
ON -SOLID BASIS
(Mining and Engineering Record)
If British Columbia hopes to secure
tho establishment of a legitimate iron
and steel Industry lhe first thing to
he done is to eliminate the high financiers, corrupt politicians, and busy-
bodies who do not know what they are
talking about. An instance of lhe unbusinesslike methods of which the Industry is the Intended vio'.im was the
proposal of the Industrial Commission
to advance some $200,000 to the Port
Moody Bteel plant which lias passed
through several hands and failed in
each, Tho sumo Commission 'published a report by N. Thompson, one
of Its members, in which the Pacific
Coast market for iron and steel ls
Placed at 2.000.000 tons per annum,
Inclusive of 1000 tons a day between
British Columbia and Los Angeles.
Thoho estimates Include all classes of
products, many of which are outside
the range of a -single plant, and they
do not allow for competitive supplies
from other sources, It is, therefore,
misleading lto represent the market lu
that way. Dr. Stanfleld's report placed tho total Iron and steel consumption of Alberta and B, C. at
48,989 ions per annum, or ahout 130
tons n day, which also Includes lines
outside the range of a single plant
but theso figures are much more likely to be a Urue representation of the
available market demand.
Messrs. Binmore and Attree drove
over from Fort Steelo at the begin
itln gof the week.

Resent Imputation
Against Smelter
B.C. Mining Men Show Distaste
For "Mining Truth's" Cam
palgn uf Slander
The North West Mining Truth, well
known Journal published in Spokane
In the interests of mining In the Arn-
orican northwest ami this provinco
lius for some tlmt; past heen ei-Buged
In an extraordinary ccmpolgn of
publicity by will h It lias sought to
put the Consolidated Mining & Smelting Co.'a smelter operations at Trail
In a vory unfavorable light. The object haa plainly been to attempt to
discredit the smelter In the eyes of
thu small mine operators within its
territory, aud tn the pursuit of its
object "Mining Truth" has, it is feared, saiiclioned a somewhat serious
travesty on its own name.
On this side of the line sm-h tallies
wilii find lltitle support- Mine operators who huve had dealings with the
smelter have uot hesitated to attempt
to change Editor Norman from hia
obviously Interested attitude of hostility to one of proper perspective but
he chooses to ignore all proof offered
him, and still harps away on his discordant theme.
The Trail Board of Trade reeciitly
had the matter brought to its attention
and passed veiy strongly in condemnation of such an Ill-considered campaign. One of the stronger, refutations oi "Mining Truth's'1 allegation;;
comes from A. E- Haggen, of the
B. G. Mining aud Engineering Record,
well known for its professional acumen, and himself witli a penchant for
calling a spade a spade in mining
matters*. Mr, Haggen publishes the
following in regard to tills matter in
the last Issue of his journal:
"Mining Truth, of Spokane, press
organ for the Bunker Hill and Sullivan Smelter of Idaho, publishes a
snarling, carping criticism of Trail
Smelter. -We have no brief for the
smelter, butt we like to see a square
deal. Spokane owes Its development
as a city to the mineral industry of
British Columbia; and has long characterized British Columbia as a suburb of its "Inland Empire." While
the people of British Columbia have
not taken much notice of these insulting preferences they have nevertheless
felt pretty keenly the hoggish attitude
of Spokane, which has not been content with its braggadocio, hut has at
nearly every mining convention supported discriminatory tariff measures
to shut out British Columbia minerals
from any benefit of Americr.n markets.
Now tbat the Bunker Hill and Sulll-
American railways are cutting rates
van Mining and Smelting Co., and the
ln order to attract ore shipments from
Trail to Kellogg, lt is time to talk
plain English on the matter.
"The Trail Sme'ter is not only the
most important metallurgical Industry
In British Columbia, or in Canada,
but it is the only plant In tlie world
refining five metals by hydro-electric
power. No American metallurgical
industry approaches it in its magnificent war record, by which it broke
the monopoly and extortionate price
of zinc levied on the Allies by the
German-Ameriacn zinc ring. The
management may make mistakes, and
Its policy may not always be regarded
with favor by shippers of ore; but it
is the one enterprise that hns maintained the mining development of Slo-
acn and East Kootenay. lt has suc-
ca sfully solved the problems of ben-
effclatlng valueless ores and has added scores of millions of dollars to the
value of the mineral w alth of the
country. In common with all organizations engaged In mining and smelting, it has, for the past year, been
faco to face with unprecedented diffl-
cutlos in the way of maintaining i;s
huge plant in operation without a
market for the bulk of its metnl products. Its balance-sheet and suspen-
Rlon of dividends showed that it could
not continue to purchase ores for
cash; and as the nine operator has to
pay cash for wages and supplies he
cannot carry on unless lie can finance
his shipments. The banks would not
do that fn face of the condition of the
metal ma. ke s, and the operators ln
British Columbia hod to shut down.
Tho smolter was thrown on Its own
resources and had to depend on tho
mines controlled by Uie ocmimuy for
tho ore supply to keep the plant running, the Rossland aud Sullivan mines
being tho principal producers. From
Hossland a steady stream of gold, valued at 1126,000 to $150,000 a month,
has flowed Into tho Dominion Assay
Office at Vancouver, and but for that
source of Income Uie smelter could not
have financed Its oeratlonR. the continuance of which aforded employment to seevral hundred men who
would otherwise have ben thrown out
of work and added to tlie already overcrowded ranks of unemployed.
"In view of these facts It comes
with bad taste from the broker-editor
of Mining Truth that, because he was
very properly excluded from a private
meeting at Nelson between the smelter representatives and the operators,
he should misrepresent Trail Smelter
ob "the only plant In the history of
the mining Industry to refuse consignments of ore,' treating 'its former
customers with callous Indifferonce,'
that 'Tadanac set out to put tho Slocan country on Uw train of depression usually reserved for the porcine
family-' As a matter of foot several
Spokane operators appreciate tho
tr-MtBMUt lOHrtH them   by   Trail
Smelter and have so expressed themselves.
"Tbe conditions in the Slocan are
no exception to the depression in all
Industries consequent on the aftermath of the war. li was to be expected, in Broken Hill, Australia,
the government had to distribute about $500.UOU In relief-
' In the United States many leading
mines and reduction works have had
u> -shut down. Why Trail Smelter
should be selected for these insulting
references In view of the fact that the
management has succeeded ln operating when so many similar plants in
ihe United States iiu\e lmd to shut
down, we are at a loss to understand
on any otlier ground than that Sidney
Norman, like a few other hyphenated
Americans, regards British Columbia
an a field to be exploited solely Tor
ihelr benefit and at their whim without the slightest regard for iiie rights
and interests of the Canadian people.
"The sooner such men realize thut
Canadians appreciate the value of the
resources of their country and will
Insist on Uie same sijuan. deal from
the stranger exploiting these resources as from their own fellow-citizens,
the more harmonious will be the International relations.!!*1!). Just as United States citizens support a policy
of discrimination against Canadian
trade, commerce and industry, so long
will Canadians assert their own dignity, national rights and retaliatory
measures in defence of their own Interests, and properly so."

HLORY to God in the Highest, and on Earth Peace,
j Goodwill toward men"—the greatest aria ever sung.
In the crisp coldness of the midnight air it floated
I down to those Judean hills long centuries ago, and
still it echoes and rc-echoce, losing none of its charm,
until all the world stands still to hear the Angels sing.
No song has ever lived so long, no song was ever more thrilling.
Itt keynote, salvation, is the centre of the world's civilization.
The joy of humanity at Christmas time is invariably expressed
in song. From the angelic hymn, which has its echo in the carol
of the shepherds, and endless train of poetry and music has sprung
up. Thc Noel is possibly the best kiinwn type nf Christinas music,
and it has grown up with the first celebration <-f the Nativity in the
church services. The Noel, ->r Christmas carol, lias a rural and
pastoral character suited to the simplicity nf the wurds, lhe marvelous story of thc Nativity.   Carols are generally divided into
anil written with very good style and finish. "Sing 0 Heavens,"
"Arise, Shine" ami "There Were Shepherds" nre all of a simple
nature. One must not forget to mention in passing "Gloria in
Excelsis" (II. B. Caul), a novel carol with tht- theme taken from the
old French Noel.
For advanced choirs oratorios are often chosen, hut these
demand considerable ability and musical technique, Counud's
"Gallia," Stainer's "Crucifixion" have both been successfully tried,
while there is no more magnificently inspiring finale to the Christmas
Day services than the "Hallelujah Chorus" from Handel's "Messiah." Its message breathes the one hope nf the world's civilization. "Hallelujah, the Lord God Omnipotent Reigncth, King
nf Kings, and Lord of Lords."
pensed to friends and strangers.    It was thought that thus they
might "entertain an angel unawares."
But today houses are so close together, safe lights so plentiful,
wanderers in snow-drenched roads so scarce, there is no necessity
to put up a candle whose flame docs not warm hearts of passersby,
and which is so full nf danger to property and lives.
The new  is  but  the old  come  true;  each   sunrise sees
new year bom.
BEAUTIFUL THREADS.
Two old women sat outside a little white cottage in a western
county making lace. One was weaving a very elaborate and beautiful pattern, for she was an expert lace maker. The other was not
so experienced; she sat slowly working out a simple little pattern
with love and care. A rich lady drove past in her car. She had
been buying Christmas presents. She looked first of all at thc
elaborate lace and jiasscd it by. The old lace maker's hands were
soiled, she Iiad not bothered to wash them;    the thread she was
twn classes, those whose dominant note ts joy, such as "God Rest
Vou, Merry Gentlemen,"   "Good King Wenceslas," "The First
Noel," nnd those which express adoration, for instance, "Sleep,
Holy Babe," "My Saviour Sleep," an old Breton mclndy; "lu the
Bleak Midwinter" and "Holy Night, Silent Night."
No festival of the year is so prolific of interesting religious
music The church service for the day is almost wholly musical
in character, and sonic of the best known hymns chant the Christmas stnry. Is there a chorister anywhere who does not know
"Hark the Herald Angels Sing" or the "Adeste Fidelia?"
There are many interesting anthems too, but success of the
anthem depends on the size and ability of the chorus. Among,the
less difficult are "Behold I Bring Good Tidings," by Norman Church-
ill,*with the comforting solo "God So Loved the World" as the
opening note and thc ''Adeste Fidelis" thc closing theme Caleb
Simpers' "Break Forth Into Joy" is bright and happy in character
CHRISTMAS CANDLES.
Thc "Christ candle" lighted in the windows of homes on
Christmas eve, with its old tradition of "guiding the Babe of Bethlehem to your home" is a pretty piece of sentimentality, but like
many things of that sort, thc consequences may lie serious.
The flame of the candle, quivering in a current of air, leaps
out to meet the fluttering curtains, and disaster often follows.
Open fires, such as candle light, caused $l",f»00,000 damage within
four years.
It isn't so much the candle that counts, as thc idea back of
thc tradition. In thc days when Europe had no railroads and men
wandered from country to country on foot, carrying heavy knapsacks, Christian peasants always placed lighted candles in their bare,
curtainlcss windows, to guide the wanderer's footsteps to warmth
and shelter on thc night when Christmas cheer was eagerly dis
using was grey, not white. But thc rich lady stopped by the other
worker and bought a number of yards. She realized that though
the pattern was not so good, the work was clean and dainty. God
gives us beautiful threads of life to weave into a beautiful pattern.
And how poorly we treat the beautiful thread!
OLD CLAUS.
Oh, many, many times has Claus whirled away from his far
northern home in his sledge drawn by thc reindeer, and thousands
upon thousands of beautiful gifts—all of his own making—has to
be borne to the children of every land; and he loves them all alike,
and they all alike love him, I trow. So truely do they love him
that they call him Santa Claus, and I am sure that he must be a
Saint; for he has lived these many hundred years, and wc, who
know that he was born of Fatth and Love, l>elieve that he will live
forever.—Eiig. Field.

(|ND now the Christmastide draws near,
1 decorate my car with holly;
i I place some gewgaws there and here
And spruce the tumbril up, by golly,
i Though kith and kin reflect that I
Am quite devoid of normal reason,
I purpose that my boat shall fly
These earmarks of the festive season.
For I intend on Christmas Day
To visit sonic decrepit shanty,
Where little tots await a jay
To introduce himself as Santy.
And I'll explain my reindeer team,
Supplanted by tliis horseless wizard,
Got stalled along the Saturn St ream
And languish in a White Way blizzard.
Thus having ranked my mortal soul,
Along with that of Ananias,
Some building blocks and horns I'll dole
And dresses cut upon the bias.
Producing then some costly spuds,
A sprig of sage, a pair of chickens,
I'll finger for my diamond studs
And drive away to beat the dickens.
So everyone who owns u boat,
Of gray or black, or blue, nr yellow,
To some less lucky brood should lute
Tlie gift -boons of the Goodly Fellow,
Aud then with conscience calm untnrn.
Accepted us a cosmic fairy,
You'll have ;i right to toot yonr horn
If some pedestrian's unwary.

CHRISTMAS SAYINGS.
The Christmas time!   The lovely things
That last of it;   Sweet thoughts and deed.
—John Davidson.
A HAPPY NEW YEAR.
I thank you for your wish, and am well pleased
To wish it back on you.
—Merchant of Venice,
And what is Christmas? Why, it is the happiest time
of the year. It is the season of mirth iind cold weather.
It is iln* time wheu Christmas lioxcs and jokes are given;
when mistletoe, and red-berried laurel, and soups, and
sliding, and school-boys prevail. When the country in
illuminated by fires and bright faces; and the town is radiant
with laughing children.

"And if thou dost well,
Thou wilt litre well."
On New Year's Eve, the wassalbbowl is carried from
door to door with singing and merriment, to end the old
year merrily and begin the new one well and in friendship.
tlie day aa tightly us the law allowed,
but there waa utlll enough doing to
mako things still warmer. With tho
close of the polls at tiio approach of

lull that comes after ovory storm

again wero wakeful and watchful.

of steel on the approaching Crow's

edflclently circumstantial could be
found to euablt; a flngor to bo pointed;
hut if the roporl wus to be believed it
was thought that one from the camp
of the leading party had something
to do with tho disappearance of the
ballot box or at loast knew of its
whereabouts.
The far famed Mounted Police had
long since left this part so it fell to
the member of tho provincial police
aud the representatives of the political party agrieved, or thought to be
to unearth the box and seize tbe
practical joker. No person being inclined to take lhe matter seriously,
savo aud just only one, possibly two,
the Returning Officer and the perpetrator. The latter at least had the
sweets of victory and every chance before him but with tho former he kept
repeating to himself, "tlie mills of the
gods grind slow, but they grind ex-
leedln'g fine." He had but little conception of what this meant, but to
emphasize his convictions he ground
his teeth, and with fists ready for action and an ever watchful eye, kept
watch and ward over those of his
hurges which remained.

Tom Sawyer roso from his bed the
second morning after election day- It
was his first appearance since the
close of the coulest, aud his feelings
towards mankind were not of the
kindliest- His head was heavy, his
eyes were not just as sure la their vi*
skm as he might have wished. Keen
politically, his bruia fuirly clear, it
was his first duty after a light break-
last to mount his horso uud journey
towards Fort Steelo to hear the fiual
results. His way took him off the
beaten path and across a ford rarely-
used- When near the water level
of the Koolenay river Tom's eye
caught sight of ii box in a quiet shoro
backwash, lho character of which as
It lay partly submerged was odd to
him. So odd indeed that his curiosity
was aroused and ho rodo towards it
Coming closer be realized it wu* no
vision ho was enjoying, no afterthought, but what was before him
was a box, a box more or less important iu appearance, a box that was
shut, whoso seal hud not beeu opened.
Lifting it with care from tlie water be
saw it boru an official mark. Being
honest beyond measure, politically
spotless and without definite know
ledge of the box's contents, Tom bore
it to Uio Government Agent, as being
the man next the coronor, whose duty
lt was to hold un official investigation.
It took but a casual glance ou the
part of this official to kea tho box
and what it represented- it was ne
less than thu missing ballot box, the
voice of the people.
Tlie ballot box being found the official count was proceeded with, Ua
contents were all there, Untouched,
not even by  water,    uud the result
wus declared ns in favor of	
——i  Why mention it now?     The
general result of the election remained unchanged aud the honorable gentleman whom Larry and all, as he
thought, true patriots hud voted for
was sustained -whal more mattered-
This did not enter Into Larry's life.
True, the ballot box did- Tlie sleuths
argued thai as tho box was down the
river, thn chance-1* were;
"First- Thai being wooden, It had
floated dOWlt stream and lauded thero.
Second — That having floated down
•stream, it had come from Fori Steele.
Third,—Thut as tho place of safekeeping In Fort Steele was not far
from the high cut bunk of tho Kootenay river it had been thrown over
suid bank."
The box itself was uot ornate. It
was plain of planed, unpuinted wood.
The surface easily took impressions
nnd ou parts of it still unwashed were
thumb aud finger prints us of soot,
tar, or black paint. Tliese showed thc
results of pressure, as of a person
grasping to throw it. The box had
been seen in safekeeping up to nightfall, and so another conclusion was
reached: I
"FoUrtll- That the said ballot box.
mun, uumo unknown."
These conclusions readied, others
wero arrived at more quickly. It was
remembered that on that night tho
supporters of the victorious party hud
built a huge bonfire us the night fell.
In It wero three barrels which had
held pitch, lt was known none of Uio
supporters of the defeated .party hud
part in the conflagration but
some were able to come forward and
statu the names of three, only, threo
persons, who on that night hud been
soon to handle "pitch barrels.
This brought nbout the conclusion:
"Fifth— That the unknown man was
ono of these who on tho night of June,
imi . hud handled pitch barrels at a
bonfire lit with political portent,"
To tuku tliis man to one side, uud
after the usual warning, lo question

Lurry was sent u,p for trial to tho Fall ;

Christmas that year was to fall ]
on Monday. By un order Lorry's sentence was further cut short and two
weeks before tho celebration which
marked the groat feast of the birth of
his Saviour, the political prisoner was
released. What was to be was known
to some and arrangements were mode
to obtain for him his personal belongings and his money. It was grey
dawn when Larry came into the freo
world and before light had fully como
upon Fort Steele or tho Incense of
breakfast had ascended Into tho
skies, he was away. No person asked for him, no person strove to trace [
him.   He had entered upon a new life.
Away down on the pine clad shores
of the Dny of Fundy near Dlgby the
days wore on towards Christmas. One
old shanty still stood by the shore on
the sandy beach, close to where Uie
high tides of the Bay daily raised,
combed Uie beach and lowered again.
The owner of some forty years had
been many years since gathered to his
fathers but tho hcmemakei, his partner, the sharer of his joys and sorrows
lu life, the one who had brought up
the children she hud borne lilm. aud
bad lived to see them started on life's
rough way, still remained.
All her children, of whom she knew,
had prospered. All had trodden the
narrow path, but of one, one a boy
who had gone out into tho west to
chnso the sett.ng sun, she had not
heard for many years.
