A move in the tight Ui nit lion was
made when it wns decided io hold a
public meeting on Monday next, January 5th, at 4 p.m., in the Conservative Rooms, Hanson Avenue, for the
main purpose ol obtaining signatures to tlie petition to tlio Lieutenant General in Council backing up
the resolutions passed ut thu meeting
ul thc 13th December, the substance
of which wc have already brought, before our readers.
ThU matter of inducing the homesteader lo come into tbe Crabbrook
District is one which has been taken
tip in no uncertain spirit. Irrespective ol all question of political aflU-
ation, all arc determinedly agreed
'that the homesteader is the man wc
want, not tho man who is willing to
have a flutter in land—a gamble in
the one productive agent- on which Wc
ore all dependent. Tbe homsteadur
makes the blades of grass grow where
tbe pigeon berry was the only verdure
The speculator makes nothing crow,
etrept bis investment am! the increase of his investment is sweated
out of thc genuine agriculturist. Let
us have a little home upon the hill
with its twinkling lights of nights
and Uie little children about tbo door
rather than the absentee owner, who,
neither toiling nor spinning, levitw
toll on every man's industry b/ making the products of thc earth dearer
to secure him his unearned increment
nn his capital.
We cannot too strongly urge that
thc meeting of next Monday lie large,
that it get down to lhe simple business of signing the Petition which is
the following terms: '
To tlie Honorable the Lieutenant
Governor in Council.

tracts formerly held by tbe Ninth
.Star Lumber Company, Ltd., between Hospital Greek and fhe North
Star Branch of the C. |\ ](., 0nd

grieualtiiral development of Wio

R. D. Cameron, secretary of the
Railroad Young Men's Christian Association, and Mrs. Cameron, were
called aside Christmas Eve by one cf
the boys in tne building, and in lhe
presence of 20 or more of tiie yoi°:-;'
men who aro roomers at the "Y*1
Mr. Oliver Bristow read to Mr. Cameron an address and presented Mrs
Cameron with a silve* tea Bevvfco
Tbe address read as follows.
Dear Mr. Cameron—In nflkUiy jon
and Mrs. Cameron lo accept this
present, we full*, realize there is 1:0
necessity 1o impress upon you tliat
it ■> ■•."♦ given^lhV01 its intrinsic
value but as a smiiBokni of our appreciation of what you have done for
us boys. All of us realize thc odds
you have bad to combat witb, and it
is tho fight you have bad, and the
way you have fought it Dial has won
ihe admiration of us all.
Not only have you won, as the SCO-
rotary of the Y.M.C.A., hut more so
as a frieml. We think your friendship for ns must Ik* made of the stud
that Emerson speaks of when savs:
"When friendship is real it is not
made of glass, threads or frost work,
hut of tho solWoel thing I know,"
otherwise we quite beUeve that, you
would have been ilisheariened ere this
in tbe strugti'e you have had to make
us better men.
There are times when we fnil to
express our feelings in words. We
think tl'.ii Ihis time 1ms come to us
now at this presentation, in trying
to express our feelings for the admiration whicb we have for you
If wc were able to express our feelings ut words wo would be less than
human, and more so if we could'express the thoughts that, have engendered this gift Therefore wc ask
vou to accept the following lines as
Ihe best ui hying to express our
thoughts on this occasion.
"The ocean deeps are mute, the shallows roar
Thoughl, Sentiment, Peelings arc the
Words   are   but    the fiuit along the
shore "
Tlu- boys song "For Ihey are Jolly
(iood Follows," after which Mr. Cam
eroii replied on behalf of Mrs. Cameron and himself. The presentation
and address was n complete surprise.
The success of the year was not so
much bcoauso of his efforts, lie said,
but rather because everyone had
worked togrthot and done their share.
If the boys had not lieen with him
nothing would have been accomplished
He had always found the boys friendly and on behalf of Mrs. Cameron
and himself he wished to thank them
with all his heart for their help
through the year and for the beautiful present. The gathering was
brought to a close with three cheers
for Mr. Cameron nnd three loud
cheers for Mrs. Cameron-

34k a shrill electric whistle startled
merry dancers into tho knowledge
lhat the old year was slipping away
and tho new 101*1 was being ushered
in- Turning in the direction of the
whistle they wero startled by the
Hashing of a red and blue sign hearing the legend, "Happy New Year".
The orchestra was encased in a green
arbor and evergreens and Xmas bells
were distributed freely about tho
hall. Urakoman's lanterns were also
in evidence and two shields emblem-

Happy New Year.

Fill up the laud Is the slogan now

thriving population. A permanent
growth can never come to n. city set
In the midst ol iL wilderness.—Saskatoon Plibenix,
There Is a wide-spread dissatisfaction with politics as wo have them
at present. The corruption and lobbying in political circles are all too
prevalent and have reared their hideous heads t(*:i high in the air to have
n pure political atmosphere thnt
woultl be satisfying to tho Intelligent
and honest elector.—Weyburn Herald.
There will be no cily election Ibis
year as the candidates named at thc
public meeting last Wednesday will-be
oleetcd by acclamation. As lnni*i as
the electors are careful to have only
the besl men in the city immod for
tin* positions, the besl Interests of
the city will Ik- conserved. Municipal elections with two factious lighting each other usually stir up more
real Iti tier Icellng than till other
classes of elections and the squabbles
aro usually over nothing ol importance, making enemies that endure
some times for years. The Herald is
satis (led thai In this instance good
men have been named and civic affairs
Will be in capable hands.
It is to in* hoped (hat largo numbers will respond to (be call for signatures to tin* petitions (hat will he

is the homy handed agriculturist who
will endeavor to do things, will clear
away tho toeest and plant his vine

British Columbia's exhibit at the
recent Chicago Land Show was so
complete and interesting, say those
who .saw it, that it drew crowds ol
people who learned much about the
Province and its possibilities. Lectures und moving pictures, in connection witb the exhibits, did much to
spread lhe fame of British Columbia.
Two important new Hues of steamships arc to he placed in service oul
of Vancouver early in tho new year.
The Merchants' and Shippers' Steamship Company, of Sau Francisco,
will place some big steamers in commission between Vancouver, Pugct
Sound and Australian ports, Three
new 10,000-ton boats will bo provided
A new .Japanese line is building two
10,000-ton steamships for trans-Pact fie business hut pending their completion, it is Intendod to place some

that they will obtain a share of the
silk business now handled by the Canadian Pacific liners.
While   wheat,  is peopling (he prair-
s, the success of farming in the, oth-
provinccs largely depends upon
fodder crops. Without livestock no
agricultural country can long hope
o succeed, and tho better the range
f fodders grown the more prosperous will the industry become liven
the sections that, are famous for
wheat are feeling the need of live
stockaml suitable fodders from whicli
to make meat and cream. According
to census returns about one-third of
the improved land of Canada is under fodder and forage crops. Tbis at
once renders valuable realiablo information bearing on these necessary
adjuncts to successful fanning. Realizing this fact the Seed Commissioner, by direction of the Honourable
Martin Burrcll, Minister of Agriculture, has, with the assistance of Dr.
M. Oscar Matte, Dominion Agroslolo-
gist, prepared a companion hook to
"Farm Weeds of Canada," entitled
"Fodder and Pasture Plants." This
admirable work, which will undoubtedly occupy the position of au authoritative text book, divides fodder
plants Into grasses ami leguminous
plants, and describes the characteristics and field occupied hy each. It
then takes up the practical Work of
glowing these crops before entering
upon a study of the various classes
and varieties ol them. Commencing
witb Indian Com am', concluding
With lhe Soy or So.'ft Bean, the full
round of grosses, clovers and other
fodder nud pasture plants that arc
believed lo be of value in Canada are
dealt with in such a way as to sup
ply authentic information that may
prove Interesting ami helpful to farmers, students of agriculture, and
others who may bo Interested in the
A feature whieh gives special value
to this work is the presentation of
life—like illtisl rations in natural colors of most of the plants dealt with.
Kaeh of tllloso occupies a lull page.
Then thoro are shown true representations of the seeds of these various
crops, which should be ot great value
to those who would introduce upon
tneir farms some of the less well
known fodder plants.
Like "Farm Weeds of Canada" this
work has been gotten out al great
pxpenso and therefore cannot Ih* distributed free to others than educational institutions. In order to
plan- it within the reach of every
farmer   who maintains a hook shelf,
An Edison concert in your home
is truer to life than you could imagine. It makes
no difference whether you play the wonderful
four-minute Blue Amberol Records on the improved cylinder instrument, or whether you let
the new Disc Phonograph sing for you. The tone
is perfect always. The selections are universal
in range. In presenting the
New Edison Diamond Disc
with its powerful, steady motor and
Mi*. Edison olfers his final perfection
of lhe phonograph, alter years of experiments, The Disc and Cylinder
phonographs combine to make your
Edison choice absolutely infallible.
You can have whichever you prefer.
A visit to an Edison store will make
up your mind for you. Isn't it worth
while to satisfy a natural curiosity ?
You'll be welcomed heartily.

were invited. .Hongs and games were
indulged in and all heartily enjoyed
the evening.
The following advertisement was
seen in various places last week.*—
"Throe Dice; Three Throws; Highest
Throw Wins." It might interest thc
proprietor ol the hotel in whieh this
took place to learn that such a thing
goes by another name, than "raffling" in our land. Here is an excerp
Irom an authoritative paper: "Shaking dice for money or goods is gambling and contrary to the criminal
code «[ Canada" Serious note
should be taken nl this. Laws are
made to be kept, not flagrantly broken.
On Friday, .lanuary 2nd, tlie local

evening when the Rev. C. L. Cowan
preached on "The Closed Door." Mr.
Fred Adolph and Mr. Kred Hartram
sang solos. The Rev. Mr. Philp,
Methodist minister of Cottl Creek,
took part in the service. Mr. (I,
Nutt very ably officiated at the organ. At the morning service In
Waldo the children delighted the congregation by singing a Xmas. carol.
Dr. and Mrs. Saunders of Haynes
gave a skating party on Tuesday af-
I lernoon to whieh many were invited.
Tea was served.
The local hockey hoys suffered their
first defeat. Considering the loss of
three quarters ol thc team of last
year, the defeat may bo looked upon
;ts a splendid achievement. The
score was in favor of Elko 2-0. Wc
have great faith in thc local lads.
With Robert Hume as general of the
team many surprising tilings may be
done before the end of thc season. So
brace up hoys. Mould -what you

A scene of unparalleled gaiety aud
childish merriment met tho eyes ami
cars of tbis scrlbo as he entered tbe
cosy precincts of Mine-Host Handley's
spacious hotel nn Tuesday evening
last. The occasion was the one annual Ileal which, above all others,
the juvenile poil tun of the community (and 1 shrewdly guess llieir sen-
iors)look forward lo with no little
anticipation nnd, if the truth he
known, gustalorj qualms, A gorgeous Christmas Tree lit up by sparklers, respluident witli glittering dee-
orations, and surrounded by mysterious looking parcels is a sight apparently tremendously alluring to
the. average human eye. The shape
and size of every parcel is greedily
devoured hy tlie bright eyes ot thu
youngsters in whose energetic minds
speculations as to the contents of
each individual package runs riot.
The thoughts—"Is that big one there
for me? I wonder if that long one is
mine?"—aro clearly depicted on each
eager, rosy visage. What matter
though the snow be deep outside and
the thermometer below zero! This
hour is one of informal, spontaneous
merriment and warmth, and all seem
impartially infected witb the spirit
of the festive season. By kind permission <>f Mr. Handley his large dining hall was, for the nonce, transformed into fairyland and a throng
of upwards of forty children anil as
many adults congregated there anil
listened with epedeng signs of pleasure and appreciation lo a programme
composed oi Instrumental items,
songs and recitations contribuli-il,
for the major part, by the juvenile
members of lhe community. Mr. N.

announcer of the concert items in his

but special note must be made of tbe
pianoforte duets by the Misses Taylor and Handley; the carol singing of
Mesdames Bidder and Horman anil
Messrs..! antes and Horman, the vio-

Piano solos by Miss It. Barclay and
