hazards in the city, and stated that

further equipment in the way of extension ladders and pointed out that

storey buildings in the city with the
present ladder equipment. He suggested the purchase of a city service
truck at an approximate cost of
$4000.00. His suggestion was that
the chassis could be procured from
any manufacturer and equipped by
fire fighting apparatus manufacturers. The equipment would include
chemical tanks, small hose for mopping up and full complement of ladders. He asked that the council give
favorable consideration to this matter at the earliest possible date.

MISS  MARY  JANE  TURNER
Succumbing after a lingering illness from n decline owing to her advanced age, Miss Mnry Jane Turner
passed away on Tuesday morning.
For thu past five yeurs she has made
her homo With Mr. and Mrs. W. C.
Marshall, being an aunt of Mr. Marshall, and it was there the end came,
after the pntient had been sinking
gradually for Borne time, there being
practically nothing that could be
done except to make the aged patient
as comfortable an possible.
The lnte Miss Turner was born nt
Thorn hill, Dumfriesshire, Scotland,
and later lived ut Gloucester, England. Coming later to Canada, she
resided in Vancouver for ubout eleven years, coming to Crunbrook about
five years ago. One sister, the mother of Mr. Marshall, survives her,
residing in Vancouver. During the
earlier years of her life deceased had
followed the profession of a nurse.
The funeral took place on Wednesday afternoon from the family residence, Rev. M. S. Blackburn, of Knox
Church, conducting the services. The
pall bearers were W. S. MacDonald,
T. South, J. McDonald, A. S. Ward,
A. A. MacKinnon and W. C. Marshall.
Interment took place at the local
cemetery.
During* the earlier years of her stay
in this city, the late BUbs Turner had
been able to get out more, and made
u number of friends. She had been
then a member of the Cranbrook Ladies'   Conservative   Study   Club.
At the funeral there were a number of flora! offerings in evidence
from the friends of the deceased
lady.
TEACHER RESIGNING
FROM CENTRAL SCHOOL
IS GIVEN SHOWER
Meeting to do honor to one of
their members, the teachers of Central school staff gathered ut tin* home
of Mr. and Mrs. A. S. Ward on Thursday evening lust. Miss MyrlJe Mc-
Caslin's recent resignation fiom thc
staff und hei* approaching marriage
being the "raison d'etre"' of a pleasing function through which she wus
given some idea of the esteem in
which Bhe is held by her teaching
co-workers. One of the evening s diversions was a miscellaneous shower,
through which the bride-to-be was
literally deluged with beautiful and
useful gifts. A mock wedding wus
another interesting item on the
agenda, and whether planned to deter or encourage the guest of honor
in the carrying out of her plan:: fur
the future it did prove to be* a barrel
of fun for all concerned. The use
in the ceremony of a cook-book, instead of a Bible, was an indication
of ultra-modernism which is truly;
alarming — possibly the contention '
is that familiarity with the cook-'
book would tend to strengthen thc
bonds of matrimony! Singing and
dancing caused the time to pass very i
quickly. In appreciation of the honor
done her Miss McCaslin thanked her
friends in an appropriate little
speech, I

MINISTER SPEAKS OF
VISIT TO KIMBERLEY;
FINDS MUCH ACTIVITY
Possibility of another bond issue
for road construction, against capitalized motor licenses, and gasoline
tax thc coming year, to provide for
n road building program which might
cover three years, two years, or one
year, was hinted at by Hon. Dr. W. ■
H. Sutherland, provincial minister of |
public works, following his brief visit
last week to East Kootenay. Dr.
Sutherland stated the fund was now
very large, and another bond issue
was feasible. Some 65,000 motor
cars in the province have been the
reason for the fund making such
growth.
"I have just come in from the
Crow, having been at Kimberley
looking into the road situation," stated the minister. "Kimberley is now
a town of 4000. I did not have time
to accept Superintendent Montgomery's invitation to go underground
in the Sullivan mine, which is said to
be a liberal education in mining.
"Behind the ground of the Consolidated Mining & Smelting Company of
Canada there is said to be a powerful corporation prospecting with diamond drill, in the belief that it may
pick  up thc same  ledge."
Kpc-nking of the coming session
opening on December 16, Dr. Sutherland said it would lust probably not
longer than nn hour when adjournment   would   be   taken   to   Jnnuary.

that the city rebate 1924 taxes on the
property concerned. It was therefore
moved and seconded that the 1924
tuxes on lots 20 and 21, block 310,
amounting to $91.90, be written off.
Prepare  For Election
It was moved by Alderman MacPherson nnd seconded by Alderman
Flowers that the place for holding
nominations for mayor, aldermen,
commissioner and schol trustees for
the 1927 elections shall be at the
City Hull, and that F. W. Burgess
be appointed returning officer. In
case u poll is required, the poll shall
be held there, and F. W. Burgess will
preside as returning officer.
The council then reverted to a
committee of the whole to further
consider By-law No. 270, clause by
clause, und on re-assembling the Bylaw received its third reading.
The council then adjourned.
Victoria,—Cranbrook city, which
voted for beer nt u plebiscite two
weeks ugo, will get it in quick order.
The official delays necessary in
the cuse of other districts which reversed their dry verdict of 1924 will
not occur in Cranbrook. No official
proclnmutjon mnking thc city wet is
required, ns ('ranbrook district ns a
whole has had beer privileges since
the 1924 provincial beer referendum.
Licenses have not been issued in
the city itself because it voted dry
originally, hut the only official step
to mnke it wet will be the issuance
of beer licenses by the Liquor Bourd.
These will be issued at the beginning
of the year along with the reissuance of licenses in other wet districts, it is expected.
As the Crunbrook district us a
whole was wet before, no provincial
significance is nttached in official
circles to the city's wot verdict.

over the district of Trail for the
Nortli American Life Assurance Co.,
will l)e leaving Kimberley at mi curly j
date, with Mrs. Crernr and family,!
to take up residence in his territory.
He arrived in Rossland in 1015 as;
a baseball player, giving two years
of service in thnt capacity to tho j
satisfaction of all concerned. Leaving professional sport for thc more!
pormanent field of business he camel
to Kimberley in 1917 and entered thc |
service of the C. M. & S. Co. us sur-l
veyor-englneer, wliich position he re-j
la'iud until undertaking engineering
work on the road, for the sumo com- :
pany for the following two years,
returned to Kimberley in 1020 ji j
construction engineer until 1924,
Altogether he was with the Consolidated Company for about ten
\ears, and for the ft.'t two years, ha*-
iieen associated with the Otia Staples

satisfaction to both firms.
As u construction eng'iieer licensed by the province of British Columbin Mr. Crerar has hud charge

Exalted Ruler of Kimberley Kiks, a
member of the Gyro club there, and
has always given good service to the
Board of Trade, of which body he
was recently president. His service
to the board and his popularity with
its members may be approximated by
the fact thut they took a prominent
part in tendering a banquet to their
retiring president Friday evening last
Week.
Alls. Crerar will ulso be much missed in social, musical and lodge
circles in Kimberley. She ha? b' -n

Of railroad  men  who were  consider*
I ing the matter of the new wage scales. He reports extremely bud

It is a strange fact that the art of
building spruce bark canoes, which
were used extensively as temporary
conveyances in hunting expeditions
by   tho   Malecite   Indians  of   New
Brunswick, should, within the short
period  of thirty years, be lost  to
these people.   This was disclosed re-
i  cently by H. T. Adney of Montreal,
|  who   in   telling   his   experiences   at
|  Windsor Street Station in Montreal
|  after spending many months among
these Indians, stated that it was only
after a two year search that he had
:  discovered  an  old   Indian  in   New
Brunswick who was able to make an
authentic spruce bark canoe model.
I   Mr. Adney is an ardent student of
[ Indian lore and considered it remarkable, after mnny failures, to discover
that old Peter Hear aye 7<i years and
one of the very last survivors of the
| original tribe, slill hud the knowledge
of this art. He is still living the simple
'Indian existence of yenrs ago, and
believing Implicitly In thfl legendary
teachings of his people. The task was
an easy one for Peter Hear und he
explained to Mr. Adney that it was
the crimping of the bark nt the bow
and the stern that required the skill.
The photograph was tuken at the
Malecite settlement near St. John,
N.B. and shows Peter Hear sitting
with the spruce bark model he made.

Mr. C. H. Phillips, manager for
Boole & Elwoll nt Kimberley, who represented Klmberloy Conservative
Association at tho recent convention
in Kamloops, proceeded at the close
of tho sessions to Victoria, on a visit
io his son, Sporry. He wns conducted
to all points of Interest in and around
tho capital city, and was particular!';
charmed with a drivo ovor Mnlahnt,
with its lovely scenery, rivers and in-
lete.
Mr. Phillips attended the banquet
of thc Agricultural Association, at the
close of the exhibition, at which Hon.
John Oliver and Dr. Tolmie were
principal guests; both were in fine
speaking form, but did not discourse
on politics.
The exhibits of potatoes were specially noticed by the visitor, who men-
tions one lady exhibitor who in the
knowledge that "the way to a man's
heart is through his stomach," produced a tuber weighing 5% lbs.
Even better exhibits ure promised for
the show at Vancouver next year.
Mr. Phillips also took in a banquet on the Monday following the
convention, nt Victoria. On this occasion the large hall was packed and
a rousing reception given to the new
leader who, with the rank and file,
is optimistic m to the future of the
Conservative party in the province.
On Thursday, 2nd, a banquet in
the ballroom at the Vancouver Hotel
was taken in, and among the large
crowd were several prominent Liberals who by attending showed their
personal regard for Dr. Tolmie.

ARTICLE Wa 7
What ii the mott puirlmgpoint ot
the play at auction bridge? Tbat » m
pretty broad question and probably
every player hai his own opinion, b*»t
to the writer there teems only one answer and that is "The Lead." When
your partner hasn't bid or sometimes
when he has, it is very difficult to determine the proper lead. Many a gust
or rubber is won or lost by the opening
lead und as it is always a guess, the
writer feels that, for that reason alone,
it is always the most nuzzling point of
play. Une lead will wm ana one lead
will lose, but which shall it be? No one
ran bc right always, so the only thing
to do is to learn what should, as a matter of averages, be right the greater
part of thc time, and then follow these
rules. The following hands illustrate
some ri iod points as to the proper opening lead so should be carefully studied.
An analysis will be given In the next
article.

itiis is a pretty doae hand but the
writer thinks the bid of one no-trump
will produce the bat results. It will
conceal the spade strength and possibly
coax a two spade bid. Tbe bid of two
diamonds seems the next best bid but
the danger is tbat the bid may be lift
in. A double is bad as it gives the situ
alion away. One correspondent ba*
suggested a two spade bid, saying it
would probably be doubled and thus
give a good chance for jtaine. It is a
clever suggestion and might work out
but how can you bc sure of ft double?

C. M. & S. CO. TO AGAIN
REMEMBER EMPLOYEES
AT CHRISTMAS TIME
The Consolidated Mining and
Smelting Company of Canada, Ltd.,
will play Santa Claus again this year.
The management of the company
will, previous to Christmas Day, present all employees with turkeys for
the Yuletide season, and single men
will be given an order for three dollars' worth of merchandise good at
'.he company store.
When one considers that the company, in nil it work and subsidiary
companies, has in its employ at least
5,000 men, this genet ous decision
means an expenditure of no small
proportions will be necessary.
The Consolidated Company is one
of the very few companies having
such a tremendous staff that embarks each year in the role of Santa
Claus, but this policy has been maintained during late years of prosperity which the company has enjoyed,
and no doubt is appreciated by the
men as it should be.

Caleb Thompson, a half-breed who

to re-establish the dominion of the

to do so he enlists the aid. of Nellie,

her that her assistance is essential to
the protection of Father David and
Mother.
With such a cast, Mr. McKelvie has
written a drama of British Columbia

barbaric customs and ancient superstitions are used to advantage in developing the atmosphere necessary to
the situation where the nurse succumbs to the machinations of the no-

As a writer of articles on British

realms of fiction will be watched with
interest.

DISTRICT PASSENGER
AGENT GETS GIFT FROM
CONVENTION DELEGATES
An incident not down on the program of the late Conservative Convention held at Kamloops, transpired
on the return journey homewards of
Kootenay delegates on the boat on
the Arrow Lakes, when genial "Joe
Carter" passenger agent of the Canadian Pacific Railway at Nelson, was
made a presentation by the Kootenay
delegation, W. R. Ross, former minister of lands in the McBride government, now residing at Kimberley,
making the presentation speech.
Mr. Carter was summoned before
the delegation and was told of just
to what extent the delegates appreciated the many courtesies he had
shown them on the trip and was informed that a committee hud been
named to use the funds raised among
the delegates, a substantial sum, to
purchase on arrival home some suitable remembrance of the occasion.
It is unnecessary to say that Mr.
Carter, ever on the alert in an effort
to give the very best of service and
attention to patrons of the C.P.R.,
responded in happy strain, thanking
the delegates  for the remembrance.
B.C. NEWSPAPER MAN
HAS GRIPPING STORY
IN NORTHERN SETTING
Now comes a novel from thc pen
of one born and bred within the confines of British Columbia; a story
that touches a new phase of life in
the West nnd develops a theme that
! has seldom been touched on before.
j'Tt is "Huldowget," a story of the
northern coast, written by LJ. A. McKelvie, and published by J. M. Dent
& Sons, Ltd., of Toronto and London.
"Huldowget" is n story of the conflict that is being continuously waged
between the white man's civilization
■nd beliefs, and those of the Indians.
Mr. McKelvie knows hia British Columbia and is particularly familiar
with the customs of the coast of
which he writes. As a small boy,
more than thirty yeurs ngo. he visited
the northern villages, and for years
he lived on an island where he came
into close contact with the Indians.
"Huldowget," wh'ch mentis "Evil
Spirit," has us its locale the country
about the Naas River. Here, at an
abandoned Hudsons' Hay post, a
medical missionary, Dr. David Main-
waring, und his wife, labor. They

THE RECENT
STRONG RISE
OF THE
FRENCH  FRANC
SERVE AS A REMINDER
TO
ASTUTE INVESTORS
OF THE
Immense Profit Possibilities In
FRENCH GOVERNMENT 6% BONDS
WE BELIEVE that an investment
"~ made today in French Government
6% Bonds (Loan uuthorized Dec 16th,
1920s redeemable at par at the option of
the Government on or after Jan. 1st,
1931), presents on exceptional opportunity for profit on any material advance in
the value of French money (Francs).
Due to the depredation of French
Francs a French Government 6% Bond
(of 1,000 francs denomination) can now
be bought for $32.00, with French exchange at normal (19.3c per Franc) thc
same Bond would have a value of $193.00
International bankers believe French
Francs will sell at 10 cents per Franc before very long. Just think what this
'nfcana to French Government Bonds;
jwith the Franc worth 10 cents, each Bond
of 1,000 francs will have a value of
$100.00—a rir,e of over 212%, or a profit
of $68.00 for every $32.00 invested today.
With thc franc celling at 15 cents, each
Bond of 1,000 Francs will have a value of
$150.03, a rise of more than 370%, or a
net profit of $118.00 for each Bond of
1,000 francs, or for every $32.00 invested
today.
We made a lengthy and thorough Investigation to determine the best way to
buy Trench Francs for maximum profits.
We are of the opinion that these French
Government 6% Bonds afford the best
medium, for they represent to French
investors precisely what British Government and our Canadian Government
Victory Bonds represent to us, being legal
investments for every Institution, Trust
Fund cud 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
traded in throughout the financial centres
of the world. The interest coupons (payable June and December 16th) have always been paid promptly on the dot, and
can 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 (S193.C3 per ljCOO-frana Bond.)
The United State.; v ?re financially bankrupt after the Civil War. Their securities
could be bought for a song, yet in a few
years the Americans were ca their finan
cial feet again, and today arc considered
the richest nation in the world.
Even England was oure 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 sent
them sky-rocketing. The Rothschild
family accumulated the major portion of
its wealth by 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 recovered 95%, making fortunes for thef. ir-
sightcd 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 thc
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 r:i the entire assets and resources of
the vast and wealthy Republic of France.
The Bonds are valid for 30 years after
maturity, and the interest coupons for 5
years after their respective maturity
dates, thus enabling the investor to cash
them at any time the exchange rates are
favorable.
France is a first-class commercial, naval
and military power of tlie 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 pons, and thc nation shows every e\ idence of industrial
and economic progress. Reparation payments from Germany are furtlier enhancing the French treasury. These condi I ions
will be quickly reflected in a rapid rise in
the French Franc, which in turn increases
the value of French Government Bonds.
That is why we urge you to buy French

"Jacob walked to the grave with a
limp, but this was no disgrace; it
was the mark of victory—for whenever Jacob was tempted in Inter life
to depart from his God, doubtless
he remembered this experience and
victory and went on conquering all
opposition. This victory was an inspiration to him in later days. Someone has said lhat Nelson's empty
sleeve was more to the British poo-1
pie than many of her strongest .ships'!
of that day. The spirit of Nelson
permeated and inspired his men and
without this victory is almost impossible. The church of Jcsub Chris:;

There is the empty cross, symbolic of j
the victory over sin, self ond death,
but it has inspired thousands to go
foi ward and face death with a cheerful smile — others to live pure and
beautiful lives, ami still others to
lay themselves on the altar of sacrifice and service after they have
wrestled hard and long, and have
come  through   victoriously.
"May 1 pass on this paraphrase;
"Return to the happiness ami stability of thy fathers, and to religion of
thy people or kindred and I wiil be
with thee."

YAHK NOTES
**************************
Under the joint auspices of the
Yahk Ladies' Guild and the C.G.l.T.
group, a bazaar was put on in the
C.P.R. Hall on Saturday. The main
event was to learn who won the prize
for the flour sack competition, which
the group went in on. Sirs. Davidson and Mrs. Crowe were the judges,
and decided whom the prizes should
be awarded to. The girls of the
C.P.R. Flats proved that they were
very good at needlework. The prizes
were awarded to the following girls:
first. Agnes Mclnnis; second, Mabel
Anderson, and third, Helen Mclnnis.
All these girls belong to the C.P.R.
Flats. The fishpond and orange tree
were the centres of attraction while
they lasted, also the candy booth,
which surely disappeared in a very
few minutes, and a good number of
little tots were bitterly disappointed
when they arrived and found the
fishpond and orange tree empty. The
ladies served tea at ten cents, which
counted up to a neat sum, with which
the ladies and girls are now ready
to go on with the next year's work.
In the evening a dance was put on
by the girls, and a fair crowd was
present. At midnight a lunch was
served by the ladies, after which a
drawing took place for a pair of
ducks and a pure bred rooster. Those
holding the lucky numbers were Arthur Lythgoe, who won the rooster,
and Bill Walsh, who won the pair of
ducks. The music was supplied by
Miss Burlingham, pianist, Mr.;
Schnore, drummer, and H. Haney,
violin. Ernest Lythgoe and Miss
Schnore relieved those who were!
tired out. The girls wish to announce
their appreciation to those who helped them in any way.
On Monday Mr. John McNeil left'
for the Kast to spend the winter at
his home. It was rumored that he
was going to meet Jim Vigors and
Ralph Setter at Lethbridge, and was
going to travel with them as far as
he was going. But Jim Vigors and
Ralph Setter were going on to their
homes in England, where they are
to spend the winter.
Alfred Monquitz and Elmer Oliver
are going to spend the winter trapping up at Englishman Creek, where
they have built a small shack for
themselves.
Archie McLeod, of Creston, spent
the weok-end with his aunt, Mrs.
Harrison.
The many friends of Mr. Erskine
will bc very glad to hear he recoveren
sufficient for him to return home on
Saturnay, and we hope his recovery
will be soon. !
Misses Orsil and Gertrude Tipper
spent the week-end in town from'.
Glenlilly, Miss Orsil spent the weekend with Mrs. McCartney, and Miss
Tipper with Mrs. Corrie at the Hotel

Anyone wishing a few tips on how
tn get a buck, please see Leonard
Hilton. Leonard brought iu un eight
point buck last Sunday, the record
head for Lumberton this season.
This buck had a narrow escape a short
time before Leonard gave him the
coup de grace. Two Cranbrook boys
and three from Lumberton were
hunting in the same territory, the top
of the range on Ih' east Bide of Lumherton. One of the boys from Cranbrook was climbing over the brow
the same knoll when a couple of bullets whizzed over his head, one after
the other. Thinking he was mistaken
for a deer, he crouched down on his i
knees and started to collect a few
choice expressions to hurl at the un-!
seen hunter. Before he had lime toj
-.xpress himself fittingly, the afore- .
mentioned eight-pointer came over ^
the top of the knoll about sixty per, ^*
directly towards him. Seeing him. | -g
the buck applied the four-wheel {&,
brakes, swingin-r broadside as he did ' g£
so. Up came the rifle, a bolt action ■*£■"
l.ee Enfield, the trigger was snapped ^
—with the buck about four feet from ,%■
the end of the gun—and nothing hap- gg
pened. Part of the unfortunate nlm-
rod's mitt had caught between the|g£
bolt and the breech, preventing tin
firing pin from doing its work. Be
foro the gun could be re-cocked, thi
fleeing buck was in the timber. Wh,
wouldn't  be a hunter!

Irene Campbell suffered a painful
accident while playing in the school
grounds last Thursday. She had a
bad fall, landing on both hands, and
injured her wrists. The left one win
broken and one of the bones in the
light cracked. Jim Bartle, our first
aid man, bandaged the injured wri td
and advised Mrs. Campbell to hav
them X-rayed to ascertain the extent
of the injuries. This was done at the
St. Eugene Hospital, Crnnbrook, and
Irene is now getting around with
both arms in slings.
Winter Arrive**!
Winter weather ranie with a rush
on Saturday last. After a mild rain
Friday night, the wind quddenly
changed, and the rain as quickly tinned to snow, which increased in the after-noon to the intensity ef a mild h\':/.-
zyrd, the tail-end of a very seven
storm on the prairies. At some point:
cast between here and Fernie, three
or four inches of snow fell in a llttli
ovor an hour, and in the Crow's Nest
district the fall was very heavy, sufficient to hold up the trains till the
track was cleared. Sunday broughl
bolow-zero weather, and that night
train crews had an arduous task
keeping going. Monday's train from
the east was four or five hours late

WEATHER IN SEASON
tin
WHILE it would seem lo disprove
ni.'inv people would like to believe in, thai
the winter climate ot this part of the province- i.-.
gradually getting milder on account of some displacement of the Japanese current, the snap of cold
weather coming last week-end is probably more1
seasonable than the dust wliich was flying on the
streets only a few days ago. In spite of the facl
that tbe frost lends lo obliterate some of the really
fine window displays of Christmas goods wliich
Cranbrook merchants have had on display, the colder
weather lias undoubtedly bad the effect of turning
people's minds to the fact that Christmas is ill truth
only a little more than a week off. ll would nol
lie Christinas, in faei, without some snap in the air,
and now that Cranbrook's yulelide is likely to match
up with the white Christinases that are depicted in
tlie pretty pictures seen ou every side, everyone will
probably feel better, and the Christmas *,pirit will
pervade everything.
Winter sports will get the impetus they have
been wanting, and though it will probably be afler
Christmas before they can lie given the serious attention they call for, the interval will give ample
time for practice, and for the arrangements that
have to bc made to get everything going smoothly,
In addition to a busy hockey season that is looked
for, with the men's, ladies' and hoys' teams, the
Crows' N'esl bonspiei promises something big for lhe
curlers, as well as the extra facilities there are now
fur inter-town games with Kimberley rinks.
Below zero weather is a good start for the win
ter, and if the weatherman can be prevailed upon to
moderate his severe mood a few degrees, just enough
to allow people lo shop in comfort, everybody will
be happy.

SHOULD GET CONSIDERATION
N tlte big program of road construction work
which is said to be under consideration by the
provincial government, the highways of this district
deserve a bigger measure of consideration than they
have bad in tbe past. It is understood to be the intention to flout a sizeable bond issue, which is after
all. the most business-like way. provided tlie proceeds are applied in more permanent construction
methods than have hitherto been iu vogue in this
section. The use the roads get should he a good
method of determining what treatment to give them,
and when it is considered that Cranbrook and Kimherley together are responsible for a larger motor
registration than any other point in the Kootenays.
in addition to wliich there i.s an extremely heavy
flow oi tourist traffic in both directions, it would
nol seem to he expecting too much if thc roads hereabouts were recognized to this extent.
If the rond to Kimberley were given its due,
there is no doubt il would be paved. There-
are stretches eif road in the coast districts which elo
not get the use this twenty miles or so of highway
does, and they are given proper paving. Moreover.
thc Kimlierley district contributes in an exceedingly
large way tei general provincial revenues, if other
considerations are allowed to enter into the question.
Yet every spring there comes a time when the reiad
is impassable, and business in the two places suffers
accordingly.
Nei doubt if the proper representations are-
made from the boards of trade and other bodies interested to ihis end, they will not fall ou deaf ears,
and it becomes a matter of general concern, when it
is considered tliat after all it is everyone's business
tei see that the taxpayers' money is spent sei a*, tc
get the best value for every dollar spent.
the province are an expensive matter, but they are
going to become more expensive still, and if a policy
of up-to-date construction is embarked on, and
carried out thoroughly, it will result in economy
in the King run.

Hunting Grounds That Make Men Happy
fto Canadian hunting season that has just been brought to a close has
* been voted by experienced hunters, who have come to Canada for their
fan outing, as one of the finest ever experienced. Game, big and small, was
plentiful. Many camps reported deer and moose in abundance only a few
rods from <«mp. Thta applied to northern Quebec, Nova Scotia, northern
Ontario and British Columbia, the outstanding hunting grounds of this
country.
M Two American hunters, Captain Frank Doudera and Joseph Sartorl
called at the tourist department of the Canadian Pacific Railway in Montreal
and.asked for a trip to a real hard hunting ground. The agent suggested the
Cariboo Country Jn B.Q. They went in for a month and on their return
declared It was a hunter's paradise second to none. Captain Doudera explained that they had found what they were after—a hard country to hunt.
But this he said put ths real joy in a hunting trip. It was a case of man's
sharpest wits against the unusual cunning of the game. They returned with
several moose, three caribou, four mountain goats and four coyotes. They
were satisfied and happy and reiterated the statement of every hunter that
come to Canada—that its hunting facilities are the finest in existence.

I had been to see the marvels
Of a  faraway eastern land,
Where  pyramid,  sphinx nnd  column
Raise their forms frpm rn|t the sand.
Where the guie was |ield hy marvels
Of dexterous men of might,
Where  the thoughts went leaping buckwnrd
To those hardy men and flight.
At last they nre discovered
In a weary age and old,
And we find that half the truth
Has seldom e'er been told.
An age of toil and misery,
Of slavery strict and hard,
An age when men were chattels,
And the Creator!* work was marred.
Their masters had ambitions
To be buried in fine state.
The mighty pyramids were built
To shield them from their fate,
So there they lie, In musty cells,
Like oranges sucked and dry,
On dusty beds of gloomy state,
As mummies always He.
These works of man are marvelous,
They hold enwrapt the gase;
Time does not seem to count with them,
Their centuries are as daya.
Though we stand amused at the works of man,
As we look on the marvels there,
Do in ever stop in our hurry to think
Of the sky, the earth mi th* air?
Perhaps v.** iiuu, .tan tin it cloudless night
The --parks  from Mod's snvil  fly;
(tr if we have pot, do you I'poH we could,
If we only would think lo try'.'
Or look ut th(   hills in their coats of grey,
Of unld, or russet, or green?
Dn we stop for a -moment to think that this
Wim tho Qod an  hy Mosoa seen?
Un Wfl find ti.tit God is sbovo iill man,
Thel Dis ways are beyond finding out.
Do Wfl see Dim revealed in every plan-
So clearly  that none run doubt?
As wt> look ul the rocks of the earth and say,
This is Cud's  handiwork;
He has written therein on tables of stone.
A  story thut   none can  shirk.
He tells thc slory of creation there,
Of thc witter, thc bird, nnd the tree,
He tells of the animals prior tn mnn.
And his heritage greut and  free.
All is there in the rocks nf the earth.
As written by God's own hnnd,
Wo can trace His mastery in every place,
O'er the chaos, thc lea, und the land.
But the handwork of God is n mystery In most,
Who rend neither letter nor line;
They know not His script, they know not His cull.
They depend   upon letters like  mine.
There is many a second hnnd thing thnt is good,
And mnny it third that will do.
When dealing with God, neither second nor third;
First hnnd dealing stone will do.

boat hIkiws over staged
ill was Mil on Thurs-
last by the Wardner
upe. Long before the
urtnin the bull was
packed by one of the lnrgeat crowds
ever in attendance at a local affair,
every seat being occupied, nnd standing room at a premium. The show,
upon which the performers have been
practicing for the past two month
consisted of character sketches, vaudeville acts and " long line of peppy
songs and stories, and gave those attending complete satisfaction, ench
and every item on the program calling forth cries of "encore," the artistes taking their bows repeatedly.
Wliere all performed B0 ably one
cannot make comparisons, bul the
Btur, if one could be so chosen, would,
v.c imagine, be Jimmy Gordon, who
certainly has missed bis life's vocation in not In coming an actor, Jimmy
evidently having been born with tho
qualities whicli make such n profes
sion successful, liis fend irlng ot
'1 Belang to Glasgie" brought down
the house, as did also his Impersonations in the second p Hod, Anothei
artiste wlm performed wonderfully
was Mrs, I'liul Storoy, the only lady
member of the troupe, wlm sei'Ved as
pianist. Mrs. Storey's soprano boIo,
"Cnrmciin," nnd its encore, were exceptionally Well given, and was much
enjoyed by the audience, especially
since wo have the chance of listening
to such music all too seldom In a
small town'. Al. Kievill, who Is
possessed of a splendid tenor, was
also well received, especially in the
duet with Sammy Thompson in
"Where D'ya Get Those Eyes."
Thursday evening was the initial pub-
lie performance of Sammy, and h ■
came up to every expectation. The
vaudeville acl of Paul Storey was
very well put over, hia transformation of a living person apparently
into a skeleton baffling the audience.
Fred Harris, dressed as an Englishman is supposed to dress, according
to most papers and people (whether
the hour be ten a.m. or ten p.m.),
gave a rendition of "Burlington Bertie From Bow," when he called on his
more Influential townsmen, which
went over decidedly v. ell. .Messrs.
Miggins, ,1. Scanland and Wn*. Harris
were ulso star performers; aUhough
Mr. Scanland wus ill during the previous week with tonsilitis, be managed Ins first part very capably, singing one of. the mosl difficult of all
songs. "Valencia," in fine fnshion.
Much of the success of tin, performance, however, was due to Mr. C. M.
Pennock, Who ha.- been directing and
training tbe troupe during their practice periods, and without whom the
troupe could not have attained such
perfection. The program was divided
into two parts, nnd was as follows:
Opening chorus, bv the troupe; "Always," Mr. Al. Kievil'; "I'm Tickled
io Deuth I'm Single," Mr. Jimmy Gordon; "Valencia," J. E. Scanland;
"Ob, My Gul Don't Love Me Any
More," Mr. W. Harris, assisted by
chorus; "Red, Bed Robin," Sum
Thompson, assisted by chorus; "Burlington Bertie," Fred Harris; "And
Yet I Don't Know,'" L, Miggins; "Cnr-
nuna," Mis. Paul Storey; "I Belang
lo Glasgie," Jimmy Gordon; "Out
Yonder," Mrs. Paul [Storey, S.
Thompson, W. Harris, L, Miggins ami
Al. Kievill. Tbis number was made
verv effective by the use of a spotlight. "Bye, Bye. Blackbird," Al.
Kievill, assisted liy Sammy Thompson
and L, Miggins; "Rose nnd Cobalt
Blue," J. F. Scanland; "Annie Laurie," the troupe. Intermission. Second period; monologue, Jimmy Gordon; vaudeville act, Paul Storey, assisted by Fred und Bill Harris;

sketch, "I Ate the Bologne," Messrs.
J. E. Scanland, Fred Harris and L.

proved so successful, requests hnve
been made for its production in Wnldo, and til's will be held on Saturday

Mrs. Wm. Greep, which took place
nfter a week's struggle, on Wednesday morning at five a.m. Death was
due to complications following the
birth of her infant son on Nov. 18th
Although hope of regaining health
was reported as being so slight, however, the whole town of Wardner was
united in the hope that since such a
fight for life was made, even
yet death might be averted, and we
understand that only at a late hour
on Tuesday evening was it evident
hat no further hope could be extended. Mr. Greep and ber father,
Mi*. Lybut, of Glenwood, Alta., were
present nt her bedside when death
k place, and so affected was Mr.
Creep by his loss, that it was neces-
ary to keep him In the hospital for
ome hour.; following. Mr. and Mrs.
Jrc p arrived in Wardner about five
ears previously, to make their home,
coming here after bad weather und
ther circumstances bad combined in
making tbe crops of their ranch home
n the prairie a failure. Since his
oming to Wardner, Mr. Greep has
een employed by the C.N.P. Lumber
Co. as night watchman, while Mrs.
Creep had made many friends among
the townspeople. Besides Mr. Greep,
tlie decased left three sons, the infant of.a month; Earl, aged eighteen
months, and Jimmy, aged four. Death
also visited the Greep borne two years
or more ugo, when their only daughter, Dorothy, was taken at the age
of six months. The body of Mrs.
(3ieep was taken to the home of her
parenfe, Mr. and Mrs. E. Lybut, of
Glenwood, Altn., nnd will be interred
in tbe family plot there. The sympathy of the entire town is being of

babies in their sad  bereavement.

their friends to be rather a momentous one, since their first stop was
made at thc government building for
a licence, which qualified their making the next stop at the home of the
Bnptist minister, Rev. V. H. MacNeil,
where they were married. The friends
of the young couple expected the
marriage to take place at Christmas,
but this also proved to have been put
forth by the bridegroom in order to
cloak their movements more securely. Mrs. Mader, whose home is in

Donahoe, being unable to attend
through illness, the chair wus taken
by Mrs. .1. W. Thompson, vice-president. Attendance wns very poor, an
epidemic nf tonsilitis preventing
many from attending, while the Xmas
preparations of others interfered.
Alsii tbe fact that it had heen mo-
tinned al the last mooting thnt all future meetings be held at the hall,
madi' things rather awkward, since nt
tho lasl moment the hall could not be
used owing to a previous engagement,
and a few members met at the hall
only to find no meeting there. No
Important business was transacted,
beyond the reports of officers nnd the
motion to pay the necessary 5c per

Will Help Many Young People
To Find Natural
Bent
Ofta at th* ondlMljrlnf jjrlnciplw of
modern educational theory ia thnt
education should hm a preparation
for. life. Our present elementary
school fulfils this aim fairly well, by
teachlng the "tool subjects'' which
every child will need in after-life
When the child leaves the elementary Bchool the parents naturally ex
pect that the high school will giv(
him a special preparation for going
out into the world. But the currieu
lum of the academic high school it
suited only to those who are goin^
into thc teaching profession and thotti
who wish to matriculate into tht* tint*
verity.
ln recent years an attempt hu;
heen made to broaden secondary edu
cation so thnt it may suit tlu* need:
of modern industrial life. Two tech*
nichal schools have been launched
in B.C., where a certain number of
students are given a wider training
I'he commercial high schools fit stu
dents for office work.
Balancing the Curriculum
The majority of children, however,
attend the academic high school
The Survey Commissioneis found in
1025 that in the high schools in B.C.
only 40% of the pupils wished to
enter the teaching profession or the
university; and yet the whole currieu
lum was suited to this 40%, The
other 60% were obliged to study a
curriculum which would not fit them
for thc various departments of life
which they wished to enter.
What is more necessary to any
boys or girls to fit them for life than
a thorough knowledge of English?
Yet in the high schools of B.C. about
50% of the time allotted to the whole
curriculum is given to foreign languages and higher mathematics; and
only 15% to English, the mother
tongue. This is only one example of
a curriculum which may suit a small
number of pupils, but which certainly
is not designed to fit thc majority of
children for the ordinary life which
they will have to live.
Before the remedy is suggested,
look at another principle of modern
educational theory: that education
should suit the development of the
child, not that the child is fitted into
a rigid system of education.
Pupils' Physical Condition
Briefly speaking, a child's development Is steady and regular from the
age of G to 12; then a definite change

occurs. Adolescence begins, This
period continues lo about the age of
18. It moy be divided into early
adolescence from 12 to 15, and late
adolescence from  IC to 18.
Adolescence means a great physical change and rapid bodily growth.
The mental change brings a widening outlook, a desire for more varied
interests and occupations, and a gen
eral rHllaMneu. The amotion*)
change is very evident. Afoods of
exhilaration and depression follow
one another, and idealism may be developed easily. It is a period when
the varying abilities of children be-
gn to appear, and if these are cultivated boys and girls may be guided
into suitable life channels of permanent worth.
Our present elementary school sys*
tern takes no cognizance of this
change in the life of the child. He
ia given a course of study which car-
rii a him through eight grades, urnial
ly covering the years of 6 to 14, ignoring entirely the beginning of adolescence. Those teachers of Grades
7 and 8 deserve great credit who
manage to keep the interest of pupils
of 18 and 14 yeurs of age in a course
of study which is largely a repetition
of former grades.
A  Radical Chang*
Ignoring early adolescence, ignoring also the opportunity of beginning
new subjects gradually in Grades
and K, the present system encourages
pupils leaving the 8th Grade to enter high school, where they have to
begin four totally new subjects, and
where much homework is demanded.
The whole atmosphere is different.
Many pupils find this new environment and course of study quite un
suited to them, and drop out after
one "unhappy and inglorious year."
In fact, thc "casualties" in high
school before the final year, are enormous, with their resulting loss bdth
of pupils' time and ratepayers' money.
The reform suggested by the Survey Commissioners, which will both
suit the development of the child and
give a preparation for life is the
middle school, or junior high school,
as it is often called. This school covers Grades 7, 8 nnd to, receiving pupils at ahout the age of 12; and the
whole atmosphere and course of
study is designed for early adolcs-
ence.
A   Broad   Basis
In the suggested plan physical education is made purt of thc curriculum,
and one period each dny is given to
it. One period of each day is also
devoted to English throughout the
three years. In thc fiist yenr other
compulsory subjects are arithmetic,
history, geography, nature study,
hygiene, domestic science for girls
nnd manual training for hoys. Audi
turium work gives a means of self
expression, and periods of supervised
play are available. In all, theso periods amount to 30 per week, but 40
arc provided, so the other 10 can he
given to optional subjects. Those
who are aiming at matriculation will
begin h language. Art and music
will be chosen by those wanting a
genera! cultural course. Typewriting
and agrir-u ture are other options.
The curriculum of the second and
third years are similar, but contain
new subjects and  more options.
These options and the various
means of self-expression will reveal
the varying aptitudes of pupils, who
can thus be guided as to future studies or occupations. The middle school
is designed for all normal children.
Those who leave school at 15 will
have received some preparation for
making a living, for use of leisure
hours, for home making, and will
have had a training which should enable them to make some contribution
to social progress.
Those who wish to continue their
studies will have received not only a
*,ound busi* for further education
without the great strain of heavy!
homework, but they will now have:
an idea which course they wish to
take, and for what profess'on or bus!-'
ness they with to prepare, They wT '
therefore choose wisely among tech**
nical, commercial or senior Iii;■'.•.
schools.
The middle school has heen found
indispensable in many countries, including Great Britain and the United
States. It naturally involves expeme, I
but though it means an Increased cost,
in dollars, it means far greater efficiency and economy in education.!
It saves years of the valuable lives I
of young people. It saves them from
becoming fuilures, misfits and delinquents. Surely the saving far outbalances the expense.

THE CRANBROOK TRADING CO.
The Heruld has been privileged tu,
look over a copy of the Christmas!
number of the War Cry, the periodical issued by the Salvation Army,
and it is quite safe to say that it
exceeds anything the Army has yet
put out in this direction. It has all
the appropriate Christmas decorations, its get-up is essentially cheerful, radiating the Christmas spirit,
and the contents arc quite in keeping
with its appearance. The Christmas
War Cry has become one of the outstanding figures among western
weeklies, nnd quite apart from the
fact that the purchase of a copy will
assist in some measure the commendable work of the Army in the west,
there is full value for the money in
! the issue. The local officers are now
! busily engaged in selling copies of
thia splendid Christmas number in
Cranbrook and the district, and
everybody will enjoy the fine reading
contained therein.

A point of interest to sportsmen
was decided by Magistrate Sanborn
at Wilmer recently, when W. P.
Sheek, a well known guide and hunter, appeared in the court charged
with shooting nn elk for a trophy.
Te police contended thnt under Section 38 a guide was not entitled to
shoot big game for trophies while on
a party as guide, even though he
might have a general firearms license.
H. G. Loekwood, appearing for the
accused, successfully argued that a
guide had at all times the privileges
to which his various licenses entitled
him, even while guiding, provided he
had a general license as well ns his
guide's licence. In the particular
case in question, it appeared that
the guide did not hunt until all liis
party had their quota, nnd n distinction might be made in a case when*
some of the party were still hunting.
