IUS, it is written in the Old Testament. And so it is written on
the faces of young and old to-day !
In those twinkling eyes and happy smiles of
folks about us, we read fulfillment of the
Christmas Message-
"PEACE ON EARTH, GOOD WILL
TOWARD MEN!"
Not only read it - but understand. Yes,
realize that it comes from merry hearts that
known no malice - hearts that, with every
beat, send forth Happiness and the warmth
of Love and Best Wishes to all Mankind!
Everybody seems young again! Glad to live
and let live. Finding untold joys in giving
with a generous heart - minding not the cost
but feeling well repaid if only with a smile.
Finding happiness in making others happy.
Ah - verily - 'tis the spirit of Christmas!
And from cottage window and palace hall
beams further evidence of this Joyous Season! Welcome holly wreaths here and there.
Gayly-trimmed firs and pines looking ever so
stately with their scores of sparkling ornaments, strands of golden tinsel, multi-colored
lights or humble candles. E'en the stars of
the Silent Night add their brilliance to the
scene. Truly, what could be more enchanting?   Fascinating?   Sacred?

Alec Stewart spent Friday afternoon on a trip to Yahk. Alec's
friends were down to the .station lo
hiil him farewell. The affair was in
the form of a shower, which sort of
left the impression in the minds of
some people that congratulation
were in order.
Jake was the unfortunate one lasl
week when he managed to dispute
the right of way with a horse which
had stalled in the middle of the road
between here and Cranbrook. Jake
is none the worse for the experience.
but he has lost his faith in the speed
of some of the equine species.
Mr. Bernie Sternberg left for Calgary on Sunday of (his week, where
he will spend the holidays with his

Hefore buying an automobile in
the $15(M>-$200() field ask yourself these questions:
| Is it ns comfortable and smart in appear-
ance as the New Oakland Six?
2 Docs it boast such advanced mechanical
features as Air Cleaner, Oil Filter, Full
Pressure Oiling, Harmonic Balancer?
3 Haa it mechanical four-wheel brakes?
4 Can it duplicate Oakland's speed, power,
acceleration, flexibility and year-in-year-
out dependability?
Because no car in the field can answer these questions satisfactorily—because no other car combines
these features at anywhere near Oakland prices—
thii ia the car for you.

All passed and A Opened the king of
ipaaesfaHow Bhould '/. plan the play of
the hand? Before 7. plays a cud he
should size up the situation very carefully. Ilia reasoning should be somewhat as follows: "A nasi id twospadi i
without any help from ! artner and
lias doubled three hearis. The only
cards that would Justify hla bid and
double would be at least six spades to
four honors, four hearts, probably to
ihe ace ten and the ace queen of diamonds. I can make eight tii ks easily
as I mint win one spade trick, two
club tricks, four heart tricks and one
trump in dummy of club. The question
i^, how cm I act the extra trick, In the
diamond suit.'" After this anal) \ , /
should win the first trick with the a< ■
of spades, lie should then lead tw
rounds of clubs and ■,nnp the tliir-l
round in Y's hand. i. ,\ has only two
clubs, he must play the ten nf hearts
to win the trick. If he does, Y should
discard a diamon.l. Assume, however.
that Y won the fourth trick. lie should
now play the three of diamonds and
finesse the ten s|«it in Z's hand. If A
has the queen, he is now in a difficult
position for if he leads trumps, he will
only make one trump trick and if he
doesn't Z ean trump the third round of
diamonds in Y'S band. If A leads a
Spade, 7. will trump and lead another
diamond, forciiiB A Into the same difficult position. Plnycd In this way \7.
should make three or Id against good
play and w;tli all the hlgll cards ill A's
. md. The Important point to note
hout this hand is that 7. must not lead
trumps at any stage of the game. Ho
must make the most of Y'sliUfe trumps,
11 is an object lesson in when not to
lead trumps.

dealt and bid three spades, A and Y
paaed, B dmihled and all passed. What
should A lead? To the writer, this seems
easy, Z has made an original bid of
three spades and if correct, it should
indicate lack of help for hearts, the
nther major suit. For that reason, thc
lead of ihe deuce of hearts seeras to be
A's best lead. The next beat lead would
be the ace of clubs.

N'o score, first game. Z dealt and bit]
one spade, A and Y passed and B bill
two diamonds. Z, two spades, A three
diamonds, Y three spades and all passed.
A opened thc ace of diamonds and all
follow. What should A now lead to thc
second trick? There arc two possibilities
fur A to consider. First, the lead of the
deuce of clubs. Z may finesse the jack
and if B has thc queen, AB may save
game then and there. The objection to
this lead is the fact that Z may have a
singleton club ami play the king from
Y's hand. The second alternative is thc
lead of the trey of hearts. If B has the
king queen of hearts, AB can save game
by making two heart tricks and the
ace of clubs. The writer favors the lead
of the trey of hearts but would not
criticise the lead of a low club. It is a
very close hand.

ine cluh, A one diamond, Y one heart
: nd B one spade. Z now bid two hearts,
\ two spades, Y three hearts and B
three spades. Z now bid four hearts.
What should A now bid with the foregoing hand? This is another close hand.
A has thc choice of doubling f- -ur hearts
or of bidding four spades. It is the rubber game so his decision is an important
one. If he doubles four hearts, he cannot figure on winning more than one
heart trick, t wo diamond tricks and one
spade trick. 1 n other words, if he doubles he cannot hope to defeat his opponents ninrc than one trick. On the
other hand, if he bids four spades, he
ouuht to make it. AB should not lose
more than one heart trick, one club
trick and one spade trick. If that analysis is correct, A should certainly bid
four spades k. preference to doubling
four hearts. If he makes thc bid, he
scores game and rubber, the wluc of
w hlch is easily 400 points. If he could
only win 100 points on thc double, the
odds arc just four to one la favor of the
bid of four spade*.

On this Merry Christmas Day
Quong Chong       Mah Jim
One hundred and seventeen yeara
ago to-night, and to be exact on a
Thursday, too, the moon came up
from over the eastern rang*', Duncan's Mountain (now the Stanford
Range), lighting the snow-covered
peak of Mount Nelson in the western
range. The higher the moon rose
the more she veered to the south,
gradually flooding with light as she
went the park-like glades, the rolling hills, and finally, the surface of
the lakes of the beautiful Columbia river valley, the home of the Koo-
tanae tribe of Indians. The more the
moon veered to the south the wider
became the vista which fell beneath
her rays. One by one small and still
smaller objects came into view. The
tall green firs were by the light of
the moon brought into contrast
against the white snow-covered
ground. In one clear space amongst
them the moonbeams were in all their
fullest glory reflected from the glistening bullet-proof posts and log
walls of a stockade and low buildings
which formed thfl trading post of
Kootcnae House. The little bastion
of the entrance gate of the palisade
at its southeast corner was the last
to come under the beams of the
moon.
These little log buildings which
formed part of the stockade as well,
were ones of the new trading post,
the first of its kind to be established
in this southern part of the mountains by the North West Company-
the Canadian rival of the Hudson's
Bay Company—and comprised
stoutly built warehouse, an equally
well set up building for the six voy-
ageurs wintering within the post, and
a house for the accommodation of
David Thompson, as trader-in-charge,
with his wife and their three young
children.
In the early part of July 1807 this
party had crossed the great Rocky
Mountain range from the banks of
the Saskatchewan river, in order to
penetrate the unknown mysteries of
the gray and rocky mountains, and
if possible to open up a direct trade
with the primitive Kootenae Indians.
Though the partners of the North
West had had some dealings with this
tribe of small number, yet the intercourse had not been of moment, and
only with a very few. These were a
tribe who lived a healthy nomadic
life engaged solely in the pastime of
existing and in the pursuit of such
as gave them a frugal, precarious
living. They had no settled abode,
travelling from place to place, day
by day, as they hunted, fished or dug
roots. Each season, under a war
chief, they ventured out on to the
southern prairies to hunt the buffalo,
but practically their only trade with
Ihe white people had been through
the medium of their warlike and inveterate enemies, the Piegans of the
plains. Now, for them, conditions
were to change, and in exchange for
their raw furs they were to directly
receive the goods of the white men-
guns, knives, pots, kettles, blankets,
cloth nnd beads. David Thompson
in the employ of the North West
Company, of Canada, had long waited hi? chance to get into the Kootenae country, but the crafty Piegans (plains Indians), who held the
eastern entrances to the mountain defiles, had been ever as watchful to
prevent him, "their friend," from
entering, its he had been to get in.
They much preferred to continue to
act as middle men, and wily, though
dusky, to make an unearned profit
on the trade of furs for the white
man's goods.
In the spring of 1806 a large war
party of these Piegans had gone off
south to try issues with a party of
"Boston Men" (Americans), and get
revenge for the murder of one of
their tribe. Thompson watched his
chances, and secretly—so that neither the Piegans, nor yet the Hudson's Bny people, who were his near
neighbors in trade, should know—
during the winter made his preparations for a hurried departure by way
of the Kootenaes. By exercise of
great care he was able to make a
elean get-away from Rocky Mountain
House, on the Saskatchewan river, in
May, 1807. He could not carry much
in the wny of supplies, and one thing
he did not take was spirituous liquor
for trade,
(Note:—David Thompson is the
first recorded advocate of prohibition
for what is now the Province of British Columbia. On the prairies and
in other parts where trade competition wus strong, it was the custom to
draw the Indians from a rival post
partly by thc use of firewater. When
Thompson prepared to cross the
mountains, he had no fear of white
traders' competition, ao he resolved
to cut out this debasing practice. Hit
superiors in the trade overruled him
nnd he had to take some in hus supplies. He found a legitimate means
of getting rid of it. for he says "I
packed the casks one on either side
of the most fractious horie I had,
and it was not long before he had
broached each of them on the rocks
at the side of the path, and ao the
liquor spilled upon the ground."
From that time on his councils prevailed, and he was never again urged
to take liquor over tho mountains.—
B. G. H.)
Thompson and bis party finally located on this side of the main rantre
of the mountains in July, 1807, and
so it happened that Kootenae House
came to be established. This great
leader had been able to get into the
Kootenae country with Finan McDonald as clerk, his small band of
French Canadians; also taking along
his devoted young wife nnd their
three small children. By constant
and expeditious work Ihey had been
able to establish the small trading
post on the western bank of Nelson'a
Rivulet. (Nelson's Rivulet was
named by David Thompson, and so
shown on his map. It is the first
tributary on the west side of the Columbia river after it debouches from
Windermere Lake, and is now known
as Toby Creek.) Here, during the
short summer which had been left
after their arrival thy had put up
this fort with which to defy the Piegans should they try to drive the traders out. Its position was on a bald
piece of ground that sloped upwards
from the southwest. It had a slough
on the north side and on the west
flowed the shallow swift waters of
the stream. The stream side was undefended, but the other three were
enclosed either by tall, sharpened
posts placed firmly in the ground or
the bullet-proof walls of the buildings. The banks of the creek were
about twenty feet in height.
Now on this, the night before
Christmas, all were preparing for or
thinking of the great day so widely
celebrated throughout Christendom.
From the huge, stone mud-cemented
chimnies of each house clouds of
smoke rose in funnel shaped form;
tion into the still air, smoke made
from the resin-laden logs which
burned on each open hearth. Thc
smoke did not rise high but following
the slight air current it fell olf and
soon disappeared, following the trend
of the stream. Thc interior of each
place glowed with reddish light, and
as any occupant moved, his shadow
was cast upon the parchment-covered
windows of the building.
It was the night before Christmas,
but with the possible exception of
David Thompson nnd Finan McDonald, the coming feast did not awaken
much joy. To the ordinary voyageur
the birth of a Saviour was not a matter of great religious importance. In
the ordinary prairie fur trading post
of the size of Kootcnae House thc
servants would be regaled for some
days on the hard liquors of the company. In here there was not much.
Thompson had set his face firmly
against bringing firewater into this
quiet, peaceful, happy valley. Here
was m part in which there was no
competition in the fur rtade and he
did not consider that for one reason,
along with convictions of mind, liquor was needful, so beyond a small
dole when the day arrived there was
but little that Christmas would bring
forth.
Christmas did not mean as much
in the holiday way to Finan McDonald as if it had been New Years, for
Finan was a man from Invernes-
shire, and to him the dawning of a
New Year was a far brighter light
than the anniversary of the dawning
of a new era. With David Thompson it was different. He hud had his
early training within the walls of the
Grey Coat school, London, England.
and the religious precepts and the
grounding of the clergy of the Church
of England which had been taught
him there had taken a hold on him
and lasted him through life. To him
it was a holy duty to bring light to
his young wife nnd to such of his
children as could understand the
rudimentary principles. Here he
was, scperated by thousands of miles
from all N» blood kindred, save those
of his young offspring, far from the
customs he still held dear. He could
not give to these, his dear children,
the manufactured toys of civilized
life, nor bon-bons, for here they had
no place, but Christmas was not to
be forgotten, gifts had been provided.
To Charlotte Small, his wife, now
in her 22nd year, and the eighth of
her married life, must go a pair of
snow shoes; to thc eldest daughter,
Fannie, aged six, a pair of snow shoes
and a small toboggan; to Samuel,
aged three, a bow and a quiver of
arrows, and to Emma, but a little
over one year old, a homemade rut-
tie and homemade doll. To them his
heart went out in holy joy, and ull
that could be produced wa.s prepared
over and against the morrow's midday feast.
From the records to hand the seasons of those years were mild, such
as we are now enjoying, so though
generally food was coarse, and sometimes in cold weather a little scarce,
still a special feast for Christmas had
been provided. At noon on that
Christmas day there was placed upon
the table enough and plenty for all—
ragout made from bear meat, venison, pemican, service berries, Oregon
grapes, the camas root, possibly some
Spanish moss-bread, and wild onions
formed the first or soup course; then
might come salmon, plucked from the
nearby salmon beds; bear roast and
venison, wild duck, wild goose und
boiled roots for thc meat course, ull
helped down with fat and sturgeon
oil. Tk* pitee-de-resistance, the bon
bMWK ****** ** MctiMa of the ric k
marrow cracked out from the larger
bones of the deer und washed down
with ''"pious draughts of the ever-
presonl Btrong tea, After that, for
one and all of the adults, came the
pipe with its soothing tobacco. No!
there was no pudding, no butter, no
cake, no oranges, no jarii. In the inner circle of his family Thompson
no doubt had prayers, psalms, Christmas carols and scripture reading.
There would be no accompanying
music, as no record is made of there
even being a fiddle in the Thompson
family.
Powder being a commercial article
of great value, it is hardly likely that
a fui de joie was fired, so the only
untoward excitement would he that
of cheering or the joyous laughter
of the children.
One man, who, though not mentioned as being one of voyageurs of
the 1807 journey, had preceded
Thompson and come across on his
Instructions in 1800 to prepare his
way before him. was Jacob Finlay.
Finlay was a man of mixed blood who
seemed in be able, but required the
hand of a master to be present to
guide him in the carrying out of his
work. Finlay afterwards settled
about where now stands the city of
Spokane, Washington, leaving a numerous family behind him. Some of
his sons took a leading part in the
early development of the Wild Horse
Creek gold development rush, and the
name is still perpetuated in that of
Finlay Creek, one of the chief tributaries of the Upper Kootenay River.
Had David Thompson been a seer,
had he been able to look far into the
future, and beyond—his writings
seem to hear this out—he would have
pictured while he quietly smoked on
that Christmas night, much that
would have given him joy, aud also,
likewise, much that would have given
him sorrow. As u man he was an
ardent Imperialist and buildod well.
As such, he endeavored to claim for
Great Britain and his king all the
country bounded on the south hy the
Columbia River and taking in what
is now the State of Washington. In
his plctuvings he would—aud as a
matter of fact he did, several years
before he died—see all that country
relinquished to the United States by
Great Britain. In his visioning of
the future he would have seen himself allowed to die unrewarded hy the
Imperial government whom he had
served so faithfully and so well, and
seen himself, through no known fault
of his own, go down to penury ami
die in distress; he would have seen
the Hudson's Bay Company to whom
he wus apprenticed to as a youth,
rise from its apathy nearly seventy
years after his death to do him honor
in the building of n memorial post
near his first Fort Kootenae; he
would have seen the prairies over
which he travelled so swiftly and so
wearily and so often, thickly populated and traversed by railways; he
would have seen his devoted wife,
whom he married as a girl of fourteen, away ut Isle a la Crosse, accompany him in his thousands of miles of
journeyings by canoe and on foot,
bear him ten more children than
those he had that Christmas, and finally, after his death, he would have
seen her, too, borne to an unmarked
gruve in Mount Royal cemetery,
Montreal, and laid beside him. The
one great consolation of his life to
him must have been the untiring affection and devotion of those who
knew him nnd his qualities. Amongst
those of these who nre best known
arc Simon Fraser, who named the
Thompson River after him, and D.
William Harmon, another of his fellow workers. Hud he been able to
look on till today, even till now, he
would have seen his fume slowly rise
in ascendancy until now, after seventy years of resting, he is coming into
his own nnd his wonderful life being
revealed by degrees to do him credit.
This night—to-night—the same
moon that spread its light over Fort
Kootenae takes the sumo course
through the heuvens that it did 177
years ago. She listens to the nightly
complaining of the moping owl, she
still floods the hills, the valleys, the
mountains and the lakes with her
mysterious golden light, und sets off
the dark foliage of tho coniferous
trees which still stand ubout now as
they stood and nodded and blinked
to David Thompson und his crew.
Toby Creek— as a protest probably
for the change in name from Nelson's
Rivulet—has changed its course nnd
now runs hundreds of yards from
where the Kootenae House once
stood. The lakes which form the
source of the Columbia (now known
as Columbia and Windermere, but
to David Thompson they were the
Kootenae lakes) have shrivelled with
age. Of the old fort there is but
little left to mark it on the surface,
save faint traces of the palisade
lines; the holes that mark chimney
bottoms, and some burned pieces of
timber. Even the stones of the chimney bottoms have been removed to
aid in filling a road bottom. In u
few years time, with the incrensing
advent of the tourist und the automobiles, if steps are not taken for
the preservation of the little that
still remnins locally—let it he repeated far and wide — if steps are
not taken shortly to protect these local remains from the souvenir hunter
and his automobile, the relics will
hnve gone, the lines fnded into dust
und the remains of the place where
David Thompson spent his first
Christmas—1807—west of the mountains, will have vanished forever.

CHRISTMAS
Almost   Instinctively  the  idea of  Christmas  dawns
upon our minds.    It is not necessary for anyone to tell
us that this season of the year is approaching.    When
Columbus approached the shores of a New World he sowjmv   .„  . ,
traces of life and vegetation signifying that there was I twdustr'al
land  some distance  ahead.       Thus  we scent Christmas '
afar off ere tliat unique season breaks upon us.
But what is Christmas? It is the day celebrated
in nil Christian countries ns the birthday of the "Prince
of Peace." It is almost everywhere. At least, where-
ever the Christian Gospel has gone and lias pained a
font-lmld, Christmas Day is kept apart. When this celebration of Christmas was was first observed, is not definitely known. Clement of Alexandria speaks of it in
the beginning of the third century; while Chrysostom in
the fourth century refers to it as a custom of long standing, possibly almost a tradition. Many dates were celebrated at first, but finnlly Dcember 25 was adopted
throughout all Christendom.
To many people Christmas does not convey the
meaning originally intended. It is nlso to be regretted
that many others will lose the true message owing to the
fact that hilarity, intemperance and even insobriety nnd
excitement will dull the true sense of perception. To
others—especially the children—it will be a day in which
they journey to the home of a friend or relative and
there enjoy a supiptuous meal; or to watch with expectant eyes for Santa Claus coming down the chimney. All
classes will no doubt look forward to this day as one
which comes but once a year. But Christmas jneans
something more. There are the religious and social aspects to be considered.
The religious aspect is recognized almost everywhere.
Special services are generally u feature of the day. People of every sort and denominaton and Christian creed
blend together in many places nnd voice their hymns of
adoration to Him who was once the "Babe of Bethlehem." Aye, we still voice the same sentiments which
were expressed by the ancient shepherds who hailed their
new-born kinjr with notes which hnrmonized with the
angels' chorus; "Glory to God in the highest and on earth
peace, good will toward men."
The practical or social aspect is best seen in and
through the spirit of giving to those who do not enjoy or
have not many of the necessities of life.    What a joy
there  is in  putting into reul practice in oui- every-day
life, especially at Christmas, the lesson of service taught
in Dickens' Christmas Carol; or the broad nnd all embracing love for our fellow-creatures.    Such services as
these are truly fashioned after the great example of all
wherein a pure and matchless life was given freely for
a self-tarnished race.    The real sentiment of Christmas
may be expressed in Miss Songster's words;
"At Christmas time the open hand
Scatters its bounty o'er sea and land,
And none are left to grieve alone,
Por love is heaven and claims its own."
Rev. M. S. BLACKBURN
generally to
permeated I
out, thorefo
christians, and all ministers in particular that they Immediately come out with a declaration that the war system and the gospel system are diametrically and irreconcilably opposed and christian men should unite to banish
war and establish a  new world order.
There is no more appropriate time for such a declaration than at this season, when we are celebrating the
! advent nf  the   Prince of   Peace,
I        '"Peine on Earth ami Good Will to Mon" was the
I theme of  the  angelic  message on  that  first  Christmas
; morning.    The declared purpose of Ilis mission was to
, "slay the enmity" and so  make peace.    The gospel of
Christ is the gospel of reconciliation, and the most efTee-
> promote peace, whether it be domestic peace,
peace  or  international  peace,  is  to enthrone
of Peace in the hearts and lives of men.
; our Peace" the Apostle tells us.    He is not
-maker.    He is himself the price of peace and
if peace.    Everything that is Included in the
.'e" is embraced iu the mission of the Son of
Cod and is secured by His death. Peace with self and
peace with Cud—all is secured to us in the Cross of
Christ. When we see the love of God as displayed in
the Cross uf Christ, the enmity breaks down, repentance
is kindled, and the love of sin is over—mastered by a
new and stronger love of Cod. We are born again when
the love of God, kindled by the Cross, overpowers the
love of sin.
Now Christ is Prince of Peace because he is prince
of love, nnd where love is hate dies; the enmity is slain.
Yes, love is the root principle of all peace, the settlement of all quarrels. And love is the note of Christmas.
Let us seek to make this Christmas season fragrant with
the odor of Christ's love. So shall we promote pence
on earth and good will to men.

PEACE AND GOOD WILL
"Locarno" is a word much on the lips of peace-
loving people during the past few weeks. It is the
name of lhe place where representatives of the nntions
of Europe met last -October, and when; treaties were
signed which have since been rntified by lhe nations
concerned. ■
These meetings ure regarded as the greatest step
towards international security resting upon good-will
that has heen taken for generations.
Since then there has been held at Detroit the annual meeting of the "World Alliance for International
Friendship through the Churches." The speakers at this
meeting referred to the Locarno meetings and what took
place there as in the nature of a miracle. The miracle
was not in the treaties passed, hut in the new spirit of
peace and good-will which gave birth to the treaties.
The principle unanimously recognised by the speakers at the Alliance meetings wns that Christianity and
THE CHRISTMAS GIFT
Out through the gates of heaven rang a joyous chorus ns angels winged their way earthward to proclaim to •
shepherds of .luden that in  the city of Bethlehem hnd I
been  born  u Saviour.
This was the beginning of Christmas; this, the event
we today celebrate, begun by the angel chorus "Glory to
God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men."
Since the dawning of that glorious morning people j
of earth have, at this festive season found a joy in giving to gladden lbe hearts of others. Men and women
alike forget their petty differences, and everywhere on
Christmas morning may be heard the "Merry Christmas,"
and all are embraced in the spirit of the dny.
When, with the break of dawn, the feet of little
children are beard pattering their way across the floor
from the bedroom to the Christmas tree to see what Santa brought; parents hearts are beating with equal expectancy as mother and father wait for the exclamation
of delight tbat is sure to break forth when tlie little ones
see that "Santa" has really come. This is the spirit of
Christmas.
"God so loved the world lhat lie gave—" The
wonder is that Ile could so freely give such a gift as to
have joy in giving; yet' that is God's way, His gifts are
given "Pressed down aud shaken together, and running
over." We are told in His Word that to come to earth,
Christ had to leave the joys of His heavenly home, and I
He, lo one who would have become His disciple, nn-1
swered. "Tbe foxes have holes, the birds of the air have j
nests, but the Son of Man hath not where to lay Ilia I
head." Leiitilus, in his epistle to the Roman Senate eon-
corning .lesiis, says, "He was never seen to laugh, and so
macerated was he with continual grief that when he waa l
a little over thirty years of age he was thought to be i
nearly fifty." One glance at our Lord in this historical!
light reveals to us something of the price it cost Him, and |
the tremendous sacrifice to God. Yet it wns freely giv- j
en and, because of the freedom the gift would bring to ;
man, angels rejoiced with the earth. Never hns that
gift boon equalled; never can earth forget it. Such a
gift demands more thnn merely a passing thought.
Lei me Implore you, dear reader, to include among
your family circle this Christmas time, the Prince of
Glory. Let nie suggest that your gift to Him be a practical one. May I not suggest with the Apostle Paul that
you "Presenl your body a living sacrifice, holy, aecepl-
able untn God, which is your reasonable service."

whether the new location had been
made, and when it was proposed to
make a start on its construction.

"Canada lias the greatest opportunity of any community on tlie face
of tlie earth," slated St. Loe Strachy,
editor and proprietor of the London
Spectator, in the course of a recent
addrcs.- before tht- Canadian Club.
He stressed '.ir; advantages the coun-
try enjoyed in her large wheat area, i
electrical energy, wood pulp and
mineral assets.
Between 20,000 and 25,000 men are
expected to work in the forests of
tiie Province of Quebec during the
;oming winter, according to the chief
forester ut' the province. It is anticipated there will be a good season
iu the pulp and paper products, but
that the cut of lumber will not bt
tin heavy owing to the low price prevalent tor sawn lumber.
Cordial relations between the ports
nf Quebec and Liverpool were emphasised recently by the exchange
of eables by the respective Chief
Magistrates of the two cities. The
>ccasion was the Civic Week Celebration at Liverpool when the Lord
Mayor, Thoaias Dowd, sent Mayor
Joseph Samson, of Quebec, greetings, to which the latter responded.
A record for October weddings
was established at the Windsor Station, Montreal, early in that month,
when twenty couples invaded the
Concourse or. their way to Boston,
Quebec, Ottawa and Toronto. Two
of the bridegrooms were bounced
following time-honored custom. It
used to be the fashion to subject
brides to this usage, but since tht
advent of short skirts the practice
has been frowned upon.

Hi
These four smiling bonny lassies are not in the least
depressed at leaving the rugged shores of 'Auld
Scotia far in the background. They seem overjoyed at
the prospect of starting life anew in various parts'of the
great Canadian west. But more than that, they will have
to go with them through life, sturdy Canadian husbands
The young ladies are just a few of a party of Scottish
brides which sailed recently from Glasgow to Canada on
the Canadian Pacific liner Metagama. The young man
with them is Robert Watson, editor of the Beaver, well-
known Canadian poet and author.  Perhaps he has been
telling his eager audience of four some tall yarns; but even
the plain, unvarnished truth about the Dominion would
no doubt be enough to account for the gav spirit in
evidence.

Mr. A. Thomson, Saskatchewan: Miss Malcolmson,

Miss Ferguson, Stornoway, to marry Mr. N. M'Askill,'

"Although I place but little faith

fleets the character and inclinations
of thc owner. If the big employer
would attempt to choose his staff
scientifically, the formation of the
hand would be among the first mat*
ters considered and greater efficency
would result."
Ethel Watts Mumford, the well-
known writer, has arrived at this
conclusion after making a special
study of the human hand on thii con*
tinent. Last year she took a trip
around the world on the Canadian
Pacific liner "Empress of France"
with the intention of learning how
palmistry was practised In the
Orient.
In India, Mrs. Mumford found the
temples of unparalleled beauty of
architecture; palaces of nobles which,
for lavish splendour and extravagant
expenditure are unequalled in the annals of the West; dream edifice! of
sheer white built oo the banka ff

remain even after death.
This year hundreds of tourists will
leave New York on December 3,
hound for strange lands on board tho
Canadian Pacific liner "Empresi of
Scotland. Many will learn tho

"The increased production during

metal inid coal production nnd partly
hy Increased metal prices. The largest increases reported are in lead

to the Immense production now he

HAS OLD RIVER
BED BEEN FOUND
THAT GAVE WEALTH?
Prospector States Old Palmer Bar Channel Rediscovered
*
i

:ki
§
1
I have found the old channel that
brought gold into the famous Palmer
Har and that old camp of '58 is going
to come back and produce more than
ever."
Such is the claim of G. A. Ness,
of Lumberton and Cranbrook,
who visited the B.C. Chamber of
Minos nt Vancouver a week or two
ago, displaying nuggets, coarse
goldi flake gold and platinum of convincing quality and quantity.
"There is ground there that will
run $7 per yard. We are planning to
work it by a combined dredging and
hydraulicking operation."
For five years past Mr. Ness has
prospected around the famous old
placer area from which millions in
placer gold were taken during the
first gold rush that brought a great
army of California!! miners to British Columbia after 1850.
During the past 20 years many
prospectors had gone over the ground
hunting lor the channel through
which alluvial region had been deposited the treasure of Palmer Bar.
Ncss himself spent five years in
the search and did not succeed in
finding big pay dirt until late in the
present season. lie is fully convinced that he has at last discovered the
ancient stream bed.
"The ground is several hundred
feet above the creek, nnd the old
channel is dry, but the course of the
river can be followed.
"There have been some tests show-
ng that parts of the ground will run
$20 per yard, and much of it will
give $7."
Mr. Ness is convinced that Palmer
Bar will again flourish ns a placer
mining camp. In this day, however,
more scientific methods will give a
greater recovery of gold per yard
than the pioneers, with their crude
sluice-boxes, could obtain.
In other days the miners in this
district knew nothing of platinum,
which is today valued at $182 per
ounce, and it is believed that fortunes in that precious metal were
lost in the tailings.
The only drawback to operations
In the old channel is the presence
of many large boulders, which present a problem iu the operation of
dredges, states Mr. Ness.
LOCAL   MEMBER
URGES   AMENDMENT
TO   MINING   BILL
N. A. Wallinger's effort to amend
Hon. Dr. W. H. Sutherland's new
bill to enable mining companies to
obtain right of way for railways over
neighboring property, was defeated
on a nonparty vote in the legislature
at Victoria last week.
Mr. Wallinger contended that it
was not wise to allow a mining company to obtain by compulsion title
In fee simple over anybody's property, in view of the comparatively
short life of the mine, an easement
was sufficient, he said, and moved
that this be changed.
Mr. Wallinger stated that n road
foreman had been shot by an irate
rancher in Fernie this year over
just such an atbitary taking away
of his land, for a right-of-way.
Attorney-General Manson said
that the act provided full and adequate compensation for the owners
und thut the minister had discretion to refuse fee simple except
where extraordinary circumstances
required it.
11. H. Pooley suggested that the
neighboring property might be a
mine and tliat title in fee simple,
going to the centre of the earth
might prevent the working of the
neighboring mine.
Dr. Sutherland said that the mining men themselves had asked for it,
but Mr. Wallinger disputed that.
Premier Oliver contended that the
property owner was amply protected
in the power vested in the minister
of railways to decide whether the
mining company should be granted
title in fee simple or merely an easement .
Dr. Sutherland said the measure
had been asked by the British Columbia chamber of mines, and in his
opinion woudl prove exceedingly
valuable to many mining concerns,
by saving them the expense and
trouble of having to incorporate a
separate railway company to get the
right to build a few miles of narrow
gauge railway from the mine head
to tidewater or to some main road of
railway.
Britannia   Mine   Dividend
Emerging from a long period of
tribulations resulting from fire and
flood, the Britannia Mine has lie-
come again a big paying proposition
and its controlling company,—Howe
Sound Copper Company, of New
York is paying dividends regularly.
One dividend of 50 cents per share
has already boen distributed, covering the third quarter and another is
expected at the end of the year. The
company's largest new mill has been
found to give remarkably good recovery of mineral values, it has tapped a large new body of ore of high
grade copper in the Victoria veni and
is extending its operations to include
a number of claims on which it is
prospecting and doing preliminary
development just east of the town-
site of Squumish.

spring. Mr. P. Goloubef, nlso disposed of a sixty-foot frontage on
the same avenue. Mr. H. L. Martin
wus the purchnser of three lots with

This shipment is being made to replace eggs taken from the Skeena
hatchery early in October and planted in the upper reaches of the Fraser Hiver nt Quesnel and Stuart Lake.
The Skeena hatchery collection, normally, is six weeks ahead of that of
the Pemberton hatchery on the Birkenhead Hiver and because of climatic conditions the former was used

Prosperous Alberta Farmer.—John
Dahl, a farmer at Cereal, Alberta, on
thfl Hanna-Drumheller line of the

year threshed 8,860 bushels of wheat
from 110 acres of stubble land. He
also had 180 acres of summerf allow
and has threshed from 200 acres a
total of 10,000 bushels of groin. It
is estimated that if Mr. Dahl's half
section of land were valued at half
what other lands can be bought for,
and the price uf his equipment and
stock put at whnt similar outfits are
selling for, he will realize from this
crop almost twice the amount of
his investment. Mr. Dahl's two sons

NOTES
************************
The best Christina* concert o
some years standing was staged by
the school kiddies in the Club hull on
Wednesday evening last. The children were diligently trained by their
teachers, Miss V. Corbett and Mr
Iverson, assisted by Mrs. J. B, Scan
land in the work und by Mrs. Vie
Lundbum and Mrs. Paul Storey at
the piano. Unfortunately, however,
the latter was taken ill and was un
able to be in attendance at the con
cert. The curtain was lifted at eight
o'clock on one of the largest audi
ences ever beheld in the cluh hall,
even standing room being at a pre
mium. The first item was the sing
ing of "O Canada," by the entirt
school, during which the little (ellowi
came out just as well as the older
ones. Then came a welcome by seven little fairies in full costume, each
with a letter nnd an appropriate versi
to fit the word "Welcome." The
fairies were Grace McKenzie, Ruth
Hamrin, Katherine Rosicky, Frieda
Daye, Josephine Netzel, Irene Ra
der and Lauretta Renlch. Murray
Sinclair next cnme forward with a
recitation "In the days of Rome";
followed by a fear-inspiring bear
story by Gudrun Johnson, in which
our hair stood straight up as the
hear started up the tree behind the
little boy of the tale. A short play
"A Mother Goose Medley" by the
pupils of the small school held the
attention of the audience from start
to finish; the young actors, each iu
costumes being Fred Coe, "Boy ull
taltered and torn"; Christine Hamrin, "Bo Peep"; Helene Wold, "Ret!
Riding Hood"; John Scanland, "Boy
Blue"; Keith Thompson. "Peter the
Pumpkin Eater"; Svea Moberg, "Mother Gooso") Mary Ruder, "Old Mo
ther Hubbard"; Hjordts Johnson,
'Cinderella"; Georgetta Ronich,
"Fairy Godmother"; Stella Netzel,
".Milkmaid"; Mary Birch, "Sleeping
Beauty"; "The Old Bachelor", Jack
Moberg; "Bachelor's Wife", Louise
Moberg; "Jack Horner", Roy Thompson. Tho biggest laugh of the evening was heard when the "Old Bachc-
"or" returned from London trundling
liis new wife around the stage in a
wheelbarrow. At the close of "Medley" the young actors were most
heartily encored and returned to take
their bows with all sophistication of
professionals. The next item on the
program was a recitation by Walter
MaeKenzie, "Soap, the Oppressor",
which was delivered in Walter's own
illimitable style, and took the audi-
iice by storm. The curtains then
oso on a play by some ()f the older
school, entitled "Merry Xmus lo All",
in liner acts, the cast of which included Louise Lawson, Annie Netzel,
lennie Moberg-. higred Hakkan, Ka-
thryn Scanland, Catherine Rosicky,
Kathleen sheppard, Josephine Rosicky, Oscar llelman, Billy Sinclair, Anil Scanland, Irene Birch, Edith Mo-
•eg, George Thompson and Edwin
Bnkkan. In the third scene of the
play Snnttt Clans appeared, with his
pack lo those in the play ami distributed his gifts. As he concluded
this and made his exit several small
kiddies in the audience were heard to
cry lhat Santa had forgotten them.
A song, "If we nro good," by the
Scanland tro, Dorothy, Kathryn and
John, with Mr, Scanland presiding
nt the pinno, and exceptionally well
lived and applauded. Georgette
Renlch next came forward with a
recitation, "Orphan Annie," and nt
ts conclusion, both schools again
united in singing tho enrol "Holy
Night, Peaceful Night," and the program concluded with God Save the
King. Amid much throwing of spiral
nnd cut confetti, jolly old St. Nick
made his entrance and the hard business of the evening began. The pn-
tience of the kiddies was not yet to
l)c rewarded, however, ns Snnta had
several little mementoes to hnnd around to a few of the townsmen. Also
he had a new invention on the radio
(copyright no doubt applied for, and
said to he tho envy of Edison and
Marconi) upon which he both sent
ind received messages and small
nackages—the mementoes already
mentioned. The messuges seemed to
come mainly from Seattle. At the
close of the concert, Mr. Iverson
made a short speech, thanking those
who had helped in the preparation of
the evening, on behalf of Miss Corbett und himself. The youngsters
deserve a special word of praise for
themselves, for not a line was forgotten and no one was the least bit
self-conscious. This in spite of the
fact that the young actors of the
small school had been attending
school only three short months.
Mr. Fred Leard acted as chairman,
nd his call for a vote of thanks for
the teachers and tHrfir assistance,
ind the pupils, was ably responded
.0 by the entire audience. Mr. Rothwell made a jolly Santa Claus, and
he had certainly taken razor blades
it) sharpen his wits, as witty phrases
flowed like water. Presents, fruit,
nuts and candy were given out to almost one hundred ami fifty children
luring the evening.
Mr. and Mrs. Tony Rosicky nnd
children left on Friday evening for
Muhogan, where they will spend the
holidays visiting relatives, returning
after New Vear. Mr. Beaty is managing the hotel until their return
from their holiday.
Miss V. Corbett left on Friday
noon for her home in Victoria, upon
the closing of the school for the holidays. Miss Corbett will not return to
Wardner. Mr. Iverson left on Saturday and will spend the Christmas
season at the Coast. The new teacher for the small school has not yet
been appointed for the end of the
term.
Rev. Dingle spent a few days of
last week collecting contribution's for
the Dormer Christmns Fund, and
gathered the goodly sum of $54.40.
A committee of ladies, Mesdames J.
.). Wright, J. Lawson nnd H, Hammond were elected to spend this money in n manner most suitable for the
occasion.
Morris Anderson has been on the
sick list for the past week with an
attack of flu.

YOUR HEALTH
By P. W. Willis
YOUR CLOTHES
Your clothes may earry germs into
your home. Some of these germs
may be dangerous, nnd sickness
would be the result.
Don't wear the same clothes, day
in and day out. Some people wear
them without cleaning month after
month until they become as soiled
and genu laden as the old boarding
house towel.
It has been proved that many people are disease carriers and are not
aware of tho fact. They transmit
contagion to others by means of their
clothing or by personal contact, also
by handling tools or other object:
t ommon use, by unhygonlc hnhita
and soil pollution.
Typhoid is carried in this way,
Those who come in contact constantly with the clothes q£ tubercular persons also subject themselves to disease germs, Clothes that nre hung
in crowded school rooms or in contact with the garments of strangers
in public hulls, hotels, or coat rooms,
may bring you unlooked-for trouble.
Clothing hygiene shoufd' include
the careful selection of those material which will provide the maximum
bodily protection nnd allow for skin
ventilation. This means having
loose, warm porous garments for the
free passage of air.
Be sure to have your clothes carefully cleaned and sterilized nt least
three or four times a year—the more
the better.
