A CHRISTMAS OF OLD
Heap on more wood!—the wind
is chill:
But let it whistle as it will
We'll keep our Christmas merrv
still.
Each age has deem'd the new-bom
year
The fittest time tor festal cheer
And well our Christian sires of
old
Loved when thc vear its course
had roll'd,
And   brought   blithe   Christmas
hack again
With all his hospitable train.
The   damsel   donii'd   her   kirtle
sheen.
The hall was dressed with holly
green;
That only night  iti all the year,
Saw the stoled priest the chalice
rear
On Christmas Eve the mass was
sung:
On Christmas Eve the bells were
rung:
Domestic and religious rite
Gave honor to thc holy night;
Forth to tlie wood did merry men
g=.
To gather in the mistletoe.
The fire, witli well-dried logs supplied,
Went   roaring   up   tlie   chimney
wide;
'flu* huge hall table's oaken face
Scrubbed till it shone the day of
grace,
Bore then upon its massive board
No mark to part the squire and
lord.
Then came the merry-makers in
And  carols   roar'd   with  blithe-

gift is love.
Fill tlu* Vttlctidc atmosphere
with thi.- great gift and "all else
shall be added unto you."
Love for the Creator, the all-
wise intelligence whose divine
plan lias made Christmas possible
—is the paramount devotion of all
Christian people.
Love of home, of mother, father, child, husband, wife, sister, brother and relative—all these in
their true form arc a reflection
from Heaven itself—make possible
the sharing of the joys of the
Christmas.
Love of friends, of people, of
humanity enables one to sit by
his own fireside in comfort; because the love he has shown "even
unto the least of these" has made
him happier and better.
Respect for the government under which we live, (and love implies; and includes obedience and
respect to its laws) and of the in
stitutions of freedom makes sale
our peaceful enjoyment of the
blessings that Christmas bestows.
Love of peace, of tranquility
and of order sends Otlt its sunlight to all the world and typifies
that gnat scriptural admonition,
"on earth peace, good will toward men."
Love of one's vocations, or labor, or business—though the tasks
are hard and the burdens heavy-
has been the means of showing in
a material way the love for all
the rest.
But how may love be shown?
The question is pertjinent, the
answer long. Man's nature seeks
the divine, but as yet we live in
a materia! world; and love, to
some extent, must be shown in a
material way. Thus it is that
gifts of needed articles serve a
timely purpose. Remember also,
that a little luxury now and then
is relished by the best of men aud
women.
Xo one ever went to the poor-
house from stretching himself
just a little for that coveted .-tring
of pearls so dear to wife or daughter; nor for the toys that delight
tbe children and make their little
hearts glad: nor for the Christina-
tree that sends dull care away.
Gifts are tokens of the current
of afrVction that flows silently
beneath. Love is shown by attitude. Attitude is proven by giving. Giving is sacrifice of great
or small degree. Sacrifice k hive.
This is the unending, unbroken
circle. Love is behind every good
thought and every provident act.
Christmas is the institution
which, by sacred historical fact
and by custom and common consent, opens the way for outward
demonstration of inward feeling.
The gift, no matter how priceless,
is at best but tbe wrapper, the
stamp, thc card, the twine—that
enfold beneath their gay coloring
the precious idea of the greater
gift of love.

A chant sublime
Of peace  on earth, good-will to

"For hate is strong
And mocks the song

Then pealed the* bells more loud
and deep:

I he wrong shall fail,

CHRISTMAS is the season when heart calleth unto
heart.    "Amidst the general call to happiness,
the bustle of the spirits,  and stir of the
affections, which prevail at this period, what
bosom can remain insensible?" said the poet.
It is one day at least when suspicion, hate and
gloom find but little space for lodgment in
breasts; when people forget the things that

of life,
may be sunk in contemplation of the joy which the day
brings to so large a part of the world, especially to the
children; for the day was born with a Child and has
remained largely a festival of the young.
Then, let us make this Christmas purposeful; a
season of regenerated feeling, of love, peace and good-
Let us hang the holly and the evergreen; let
us promote the surge of joy.   In this spirit,  the
publishers of the Cranbrook Herald wish for all

1 retrace the doings and  proceedings
of the expedition. We do not sufficiently realize to thi.s day how vital
waa the result of the successful
match of Colonel Wolseley and his
splendid men to the Dominion of Canada. The lack of unity in the Canadian parliament and the active obstruction of the members from the
province of Quebec to any attempt to
enforce law and order in the territory
just purchased from the Hudson's
Bay Company, might have ended in

SPECTACULAR RISE
OF FRENCH FRANCS
CONTINUES
FRENCH GOVERNMENT 6% BONDS
SCORING FURTHER ADVANCES
IN SWEEPING UPWARD MOVEMENT
HEAVY GAINS DAILY
Immense Profit Possibilities In
FRENCH GOVERNMENT 6% BONDS
«7E BELIEVE that an investment
** made today in French Government
6% Bonds (Loan authorized Dec. 16th,
1920; redeemable at par at the option ol
the Government on or after Jan. 1st,
1931), presents an exceptional opportunity for profit on any material advance in
the value of French money (Francs).
Due to the depreciation of French
Francs a French Government 6% Bond
(of 1,000 francs denomination) can now
be bought for $35.00, with French exchange at norrhal (19.3c per Franc) the
same Bond would have a value of S193.00
International bankers believe French
Francs will sell at 10 cents per Franc before very long. Just think what this
means to French Government Bonds:
with the Franc worth lOcents, each Bond
of 1,000 francs will have a value of
$100.00—a rise of over 185%, or a profit
of $65.00 fur every $35.00 invested today.
With the franc selling at 15 cenls, each
Bond of 1,000 Francs will have a value of
$150.00, a rise of more than 328%, or a
net profit of $115.00 for each Bond of
1,000 francs, or for every $35.00 invested
today.
We made a lengthy and thorough investigation to determine the best way to
buy l'rench Francs for maximum profits.
VVe are of the opinion that these French
Government 6% Bonds afford the best
medium, for tliey represent to French
investors precisely what British Government and our Canadian Government
Victory Bonds represent to ns. being legal
investments for nrrv Institution, Trust
Fund ami Savings Bank in France, and
constituting a strictly high-grade Government investment They may be sold
again instantly for spot cash, as they are
listed on the Paris Stock Exchange and
itaded in throughout the financial centres
im the world, The Interest coupons (payable June and December 16th) have always been paid promptly on the dot, and
ran be cashed in Montreal, New York,
London, and other financial centres
through our House, banks or other institutions.
French Government Bonds will, we
believe, unquestionably come back to
normal (5193.00 per 1,000-franc Bond.)
The United Slates were financially bank-
mpt aftei the Civil War. Theii securities
could be bought for a song, yel in a few
years the Americans were on iheir finan
cial feet again, and today are considered
the richest nation in the world.
Even England was once faced with
what seemed to be a financial disaster.
With Napoleon virtually pounding at her
gates, British Bonds went for next to
nothing, but the victory at Waterloo s^nt
ihem sky-rocketing. The Rothschild
family accumulated the major portion of
its wealth oy investing in British bonds
and selling them when Wellington's victory became known.
The experience of France, too, bank-
tupt at the hands of Bismarck, is within
the memory of living man. Her Bonds
sold down to 7% of their value after the
Franco-Prussian War. They appeared
hopeless, yet in two years they had re-
cpvered 95%, making fortunes for the far-
sighted investors who had the courage to
invest in them. When millions of men and
populations of nations lend their collective efforts to the task—nothing is impossible. The French franc will undoubtedly come back to normal.
A study of history convinces one forcibly that the most difficult thing in the
world to destroy is national existence.
History is repeating itself. The opportunity of a lifetime, to earn remarkable
profits, exists today for investors, through
the purchase of these high-grade French
Government. Bonds. They rank as the
pre-eminent class of French Government
securities, and are virtually a first mortgage on the entire assets and resources of
the vast and wealthy Republic of F ranee.
The Bonds are valid for 30 years after
maturity, and the interest coupons for 5
years after their respective maturity
dates, thus enabling the im esior to cash
them at any time the exchange rates are
favorable.
France is a first-class commercial, naval
and military power of the world. French
industries are thriving and working overtime. France is exporting goods to every
country of the globe; her shipping is
crowding the world's ports, and the nation shows every evidence of industrial
and economic progiess. Reparation payments from Germany are further enhancing the French treasury. These conditions
will be quickly reflected in a rapid rise in
the French l-'ranc, which in turn increases
the value of French Government Bonds.
Thai is why we urge you to buy French
Government Bonds A'OIF, while they
are on the bargain counter.

The income from French Government 6%
Bonds comprises many of the attractive
features of an ordinary share, or share of
common stuck. While the income exprened
' in French money remain! fixed tbe value
of that money to the Canadian or American
investor depends upon tbe exchange value
of the French franc expressed In dollars.
Thus it will be seen that at tha preient
rate for the franc the bolder of n 10,000-
Franc Bond will receive for hie coupons
aggregating elwoyi 600 francs per annum a
sum io Canadian money equivalent to •
return of nearly 7 % on bia Investment, tbat
is, on the cost of nil 10,000-Franc Bond
which at tbe preient time ie 1150,00.
When the franc reachei 8 centi, however,
the nine of tbe coupons will be much
higher; 600 franca will be worth U*M
which on on investment ot $150.00, if equal
to ■ yield of 1<H%. Few common MOdB
offer n attractive a return.
When tbe franc hai reached 10 centi or
11,000.00 per lo.ooo-franc Bond tbe return
will be proportionately higher. Every 0UU

i 'U.00. representing o return of over 15%.
And lastly, with the franc at par, Lo.
19.3 cent! or tl.WQ.Q0 per 10,000-ffUC
Bond, tbe coupons for one year amounting
to 000 franci will be worth $115.80—tn
amount equivalent to • return of nearly
Jt* o on tbe original investment of $150.00.
The Swiss franc a few yean ago was

pers; but Smith with customary caution had left them in safe keeping
at Pembina. Refusing to give a writ*

messenger, he allowed his brother-
in-law, Richard Hardisty, to bring
them to the settlement. Near St.

it was found that the President's
party were in the minority.
Reference has been mnde to
Howe's most iibernl policy—these assurances related to civil and
religious liberties and privileges, to
be sacredly respected; to properties,
rights und equities of every
kind us enjoyed under the Hudson's

I Governor McTavish anil Commission-
ler Smith knew of it; and were escorting Hardisty in safety to the set
tlement. There were threats of,
bloodshed, but the documents were I
safely delivered to Judge Black. It
was decided by the party who had
effected the rescue that a public
meeting should be held the following
duy to hear them reud.
Informed of Policy
On January 10th, with the temperature twenty degrees below zero.
Commissioner Smith placed the policy
of the Imperial and Canadian governments for the first time fairly before
more than a thousand of the settlers
in the courtyard of Fort (lurry. It
was seen in the light of a royal message, of letters from the Governor-
General, und of the candid assurance
in Howe's instructions to McDougall,
how mistaken had been anticipations
of ovil. Riel, however, who acted
as interpreter, seemed to have regained control of the armed Metis.
[The account in the New Nation bore
I out Smith's report thut the reading
jof tho documents wus contended with
much obstinacy. Riel, the leader
found   himself   patently   ouf-witted.
I The Commissioner was adroit, undaunted, and insistent. The meeting
dispersed with tho utmost good fooling. Cheers were given und cups
thrown in the air. French uml British shook hands, und for the first
time in mnny months, a spirit of
unity appeared. There was an agreement to call a convention of forty—I tending, on behalf of the Can

During this glad season we never fail to

of our friends who have contributed to our success.    To all we
extend —
THE  SEASON'S  GREETINGS
Cranbrook Drug & Book
CO., LTD.
J. F. SCOn, Mgr.
Mrs. 0. R. Taplin, of Yahk, arrived last Saturday to spend the
Christmas holiday with her sister,
Mrs. Patton.
The drawing for the Zenith Cafe
Christinas cake will take place at the
Star Theatre on Thursday evening,
Dec,  23rd.
Messrs. Wm. J. Wilson, Wm. Kel-
fedder and Alvin Embury wero business visitors to Nelson for three duys
at the betfinninp of this week.
Miss Cora Kortier, one of the
nurses in training at the hospital
here, left this week for Pincher
Creek, where she will spend the
Christmas holidays with relatives
Miss Irma Ward is enjoying the
holiday season with relatives at Seattle nnd Vancouver, leaving on Friday
last for these Coast points. She was
accompanied by her sister, Miss Kvelyn, who spent a few days at Kings-
gate. _
Muck Urge, Jack Moffatt nnd
Keith Wasson, who have been attending the University of Alberta at
Edmonton, returned to the city on
Wednesday to enjoy the Christmas
holidays with their pnrents in Cran
brook.
Miss Edna Magee, of the teaching
stuff of the city of Medicine Hat,
Alta., is expected to arrive the end
of this week and will spend the
Christmas holiday with her sister,
Mrs. P. Ci. Morris, and her father,
Mr. Magee, of Sceptre, Sask., who is
also visiting here.
The annual Santa Claus night for
the children of Cranbrook given by
the Fink Mercantile Co., this year
proved a great success. The Star
Theatre wus crowded twice with the
boys und girls up to fourteen years
of age. The picture, "The Silken
Shackles," was much enjoyed by the
children.
Mr. Bert Johnson, formerly of Wycliffe, und for some time the cones-
pondent for the Herald at that place,
is a visitor in the city for the Christmas holidays. Mr. Johnson is now located at Wedderburn, Ore., where he
is now engaged in business, holding
a responsible position with a large
lumbering concern of that place.
While immensely pleased with his
new locution, Mr. Johnson expressed
his pleasure at once more being in
East Kootenay.
Owing to unexpected demands on
space this week to accommodate the
business people and others who wished to extend through the medium of
the Herald the customary good wishes
at this season, a few items have had
to be held out on account of luck
time and space to adequately look
after them. Some re-arrangement
of the pages was found necessary after thc paper went to press, the pages
thus bein£ found to be numbered a
little out of order.
At the weekly meeting of the Gyro
Club on Tuesday evening, Principal
F. F. Iluck of the High School gave
a most interesting address on the
Imperial Conference. It was considered an address of more than
usual interest ond exceedingly informative, and it is suggested that if
it is found possible, a synopsis of the
address bc published. It is unfortunately not possible to undertake
this in the present issue, but the
Herald will be glad to give space to
it next week.
Thnt the Board of School trustees
were wise in making the changes in
the heating system ot the Central
school lost summer was clearly demonstrated during the recent cold spell,
when it was shown that with the
changed system the building was kept
very comfortable despite the twenty
below weather, with the use of but
one boiler. It was not found necessary to call into service the second
boiler. It is therefore evident that
the change will mean a great saving
in fuel consumption, us well as giving
better  service.
