held a meeting the other night, when
Miss .Alary .lane Slack liamincr, secretary treasurer, whose looks would
make her dead sate from being kidnapped in any man's country, read a
paper ou tin- "Social Unrest in Mexico." Her rendition would produce
grief at a funeral.
Tin: Tobacco Plains Indians, near
Roosville, held a bin levee, There
was a notable gathering at tlte
prelty Indian village, situated at the
north end of Roosville Valley, the
land of sunshine, Irult, two-handled
pumpkins and doulde-yolkcd eggs,
last week in celebration ol the coming of age festivities of Johnny-Long-
Lavish arrangements had Vict-n made
for   the celebration and  dozens,     of
Indians   with    their squaws  and papooses wen* invited to the festivities,
a large    company  assembling.    All
the cream-dc-la-slcim were, there from
distant reserves    and the proceedings
were one     continuous round   of pleasure and went along as smooth as   a
Wednesday   evening     prayer meeting.

would    make a cabinet minister quit
liis job, and had Johnny feeling like a
self-made    millionaire    about to eat
consomme.       In his closing remarks
he  said    thnt    Johnny  was bigger,
grander,   nobler and     tighter arouiul
the chest than any brave on the   reserve.      Young    Chief   Johnny, who
was   greeted     wilh     applause, spoke
with   Indian    directness and brevity
in   expressing his thanks for the gift
and appreciation    of tbe g'>od feeling
lhat had bun shown.
Like a clash of thunder that foi
lows the lightning tho enthusiasm began and he received an ovation which
might have gratified the last of tin*
Caesars, and he went around shaking
hands like a president on parade.
Prominent among the visiting Nobles,
and most respected wearers ol the

Rod Moon, Stone Call, Lone Wolf,
Hole-In the Blanket, Big Moon, Iron

The banquet was excellent, and   the

The s.juaws were dressed like New-

difference, and for all the world looked as proud as a drove of peacocks.
In the evening Miss Millie- Bull
Trout, "Tho Speckled Beauty," sang
several selections by request and was
accompanied by the Village Siring
Bean Band. She was very stylishly,
dressed in an exquisite, very short
skirt, of Tobacco Plains sheep-herders plaid, with mud dots* and green
goose quills, a squaw town opera
shawl covered her classic shoulders
and was fastened in front by a very
pretty barb-wire plaited fence spike,
rainbow colored blanket hose and
beaded moccasins, she had a ring

On Saturday evening last a meeting
of tlie Conservative association of
this dislrict was called for the purpose of electing ollicers for the forthcoming year, when a large anil representative body of members of the association foregathered in the association rooms. The proceedings throughout were marked by a spirit of
unity aud concord which augurs well
for the luture harmonious working ol
the association. Amongst those
present were: Messrs. Burdett, Hand-

We feci sure that with such inerge-

welfare of the district will be well
safeguarded. It is felt that the district has not received that recognition from outsiders that is rightly
its due, but the forthcoming year
will see renewed activities in its
immni.se mining and lumber areas,
and this fact, coupled wilh its deservedly famous agricultural possibilities will bring the district into the
foremost rank of those already regarded as the richest and most, progressive in the whole Dominion.
Business men of Prince Rupert and
Northern British Columbia are planning an excursion across the continent to the Atlantic terminus of the
Grand Trunk Pacific upon the com-

Worthy of the worlds
best music
To most of us the chance toliear human playing
of good music comes infrequently. Only in the
great cities are the appetites of the music-hungry
satisfied. Even then one can hear but a small
part of all the worth while concerts.
Fortunately for those who love the masters of lhe past, and who
have the judgment to recognize in present day composers the
masters of the future, there is the kdison
Phonograph. It is worthy of Wagner, of
Bach, of Puccini. The clear, sweet tone,
remarkable in its purity, is simply a translate'!, of human music into your own home.
Unless you have heard lhe newest Edisons,
you have no conception of their wonderful
mellow quality. You never realized that
such beauty could be applied to sound.
Ask your Edison dealer to play one of
the Blue Amberol Records then you will
know that the whole world of good music
—past and present—is open lo you. Edison Amberola I

Thc new Catholic saahaxils nt thc
corner of Norbury avenue ainl Kains
street is practically completed and
the plasterers are now a-n^agcil in
giving it the interior tiiii.-,liing touches. When completed tho schools will
have cost over 215,000,' anal expenditure, which could nol easily liave been
undertaken by the Catholics ot the
city were they nol generously aided
by the Archbishop of Vancouver and
the Fathers of the Oblate, Order who
have charge of the parish and district. The structure and the manner
in which it is erected reflect tlie
greatest credit on George H. Leask,
who had the contract for the entire
erection of the building. With him
was associated Mr. F. O'Hara, city
engineer, who exercised a general
supervision over tlie progress of the
work, besides keeping a sharp lookout on the financial end of tlie matter.
The trustees were certainly prcpent-
ed with sonic proh.ems .suggestive of
financial anxiety, hut as the schools
simply had to co:uc into existence,
they stand as a concrete example of
what a bit of quiet determination
can do even In the face of hard times
and the tlcnon of "financial stringency" which is invoked at every
turn of the road these times.
The structure is sonic 75 feet by
40, and consists of an extensive basement, constructed of concrete throughout, and divided into separate play
rooms for boys and girls. These can
be made use of in inclement weather.
There is also a furnace room, coal
room and the usual equipment of such
plants. In thc basement, also, are
situated tlie labatorics fitted with
the most recent and improved appliances.
Thc  niain    door,  slightly    raised
above the level of the street, is approached by a   vestibule and hall, off
which  to tin- left,   renter   anal right,
open the  three  class  rooms.      The
points most emphasized in these three
.most    important    apartments,    are
abundant  light,    perfect   ventilation
and comfortable heating, Two of   the
class rooms are lighted on two sides
with  high and    wide windows,  one
from the west and    north, the other
from thc north and east.    The third
room  is lighted  entirely from      the
north,  a    very    important    matter
where there may he children affected
with tender eyes who sufier in   their
studies if there be a glare in       the
room in which tliey have lo read and
write.      The   room above   the  class
room level is occupied with a    most
excellent  public  hall,    70 feet by 30
and fitted    with  a   permanent stage
j for   lecturing and theatrical purposes
at the east end.    This is one of tbe
liest, it not the very besl hall in   the
city for public entertainments, balls,
private damn's, lectures, public meet-
ings and so on.     The lloor is in polished maple so that dancing will be a
I most delightful experieni-e—unless, of
j course, thai one   is cursed with      a
I partner   who   needs   to he    yan'ced
j around with a derrick and, It is said,
I the woods arc full cf them. The stage
j will make a most convenient   suppcr
room ami,   what adds very considerably to lhe convenience is that th.-re
I all manner of first, rate cooking    appliances   provided, including a range,
• hot and cold water and an entrance
trom the side   which can be      used
without, Interfering   with lhe guests
! on the   floor.  Trie plaee    should be
largely   patronized   hy   those giving
private dances   where    more Invitations are issued than one's house can
accommodate,    clonk rooms are also
provided   with Ihe usual toilet     appliances for ladies.    On this lloor  is
I the teachers' room opening out on  a
sort of sun-vernndah and commanding
as lovely a view of thc Selkirks   and
the  valley away to the north      and
south as one can lint.    Below,     to
the north and  east, lies the city, to
, the west tlie railway yards and      to
j the soulh   west    one can mark the
trains   toiling    slowly up Loco hill
| MB they   disappear    down towards
I Wattsburg.    This room can be availed of on the occasion of dances as an
ante-room, palm-room, card-room or
j ante room.
I   The grounds cover eight lots,    but
j hare not yet lieen divided into      the
j separate playgrounds   for    thc boys
and girls which arc intended.
I   Taken as a whole, thc structure is
a most decided addition to the public
buildings of flic city and help to  add
distinction to the residential portion
of the    city.      Mr.  John  Reid, thc
government road superintendent, very
furnish lhe teaching stall faar all the
grades. Tbe educational standard
on all lhe subjects embraced the
curriculum a,i the ordinary government schools and high si-ho.ais will
mosl certainlj be maintained li
will be the keen ambit ia.n of tha' laui-
ies in charge to oven better thai
Standard. It is expected thai nboul
sixty chilalrin will he ready to engage
ibe attention of the Sisters Immediately after the New yoar.
Quite a number of donations have
iM-a'n received from ilia- merchants aal
tne city und from many outsiders in
distant places. One notable ami
most acceptable presentation consists
of fifty sa-hulil desks given by the
Kink Mercantile Compnny a>i Cranbrook.
At this season oi ilia' year one
thinks of how the warmth oi the
ehildran will be provided faar. The
matter of healing anal tin- plumbing
was put into tin1 hands of Pntmoro
Brothers of this cily, whose work is
a synonym fair excellence wherever' It
is Installed, This part of the work
alone, cost, over S3,noo, but it is done
in the very best possible maim ir.
Acting on the suggestion of the
contractors lhe trustees adopted the
hot water syslem aaf hrating in prc-
ti rente to any other method.
This is lh.' firsl separate Catholic
school elected in I he interior of
British Columbia, hot is believed to
be merely the forerunner of many to
be built in the immediate future.
Local officials ol tho ('. 1*. R. arc
very glad thut a heavy death toll ami
a law loss In rolling sto'k was very
narrowly averted last Monday when
two flat ears loaded wilh ties, broke
away from tin* load.'is in » siding al
Kinert, fifty mjles west of here,
cleared two switches and ran west
on the main line a distance of about
ti miles nt about one hundred miles
an hour. The loaded Pat ears bore a
weight of about 100 tons and passed
through Kitehmer station with a
roar. Number M -?ast bound Son
freight was expected at Kitchener
any minute and a head-on collision
seemed certain. Cranbrook was immediately notified and the wrecking
crew and duclors were hiirridly called to go the scene, but, just iK'fore
leaving, word arrived that number SI
had arrived safely at Kitchener with
out seeing anything of the runaway
It seems that as the runaway cars
were within a tjuarter ol a mile of
the freight train they jumped the..
trac1*; while rounding a curve am. buried tliemsehes down a hundred foot
ban1*:. Travelling at such a speed
they made a clean jump over the embankment nnd without injuring tho
track, thus allowing Xo 81 to pass
safely by.
The wrecking crew mid doctors dispersed with glad hearts, because with
the conglomeration of curves at this
point the crew of the freight train
would scarcely have had a second's
warning, a"d a heavy death list seem
cd'to be averted   only hv a miracle
Ottawa, Dei-. 33.—Tho post ofTic
department, with its army of postmasters, clerks anal men in the railway mail service, is struggling with
a heavier volume of Christmas mail
Ihan ever In the past.
The stories of haral times are belled
by lhe increase iu mail mal ter of all
hinils anil heavy increase in mails
from the old country.
Last year when there wns only lhe
weekly mail service [rom the old
country the main Christmas mails
arrived on December 211th, on the
Empress of Ireland, and consisted, of
twenty-three carloads. This yeiir
there is a semi-weekly service and
the Cnrsicnn, arriving on Friday,
hriMghl eleven carloads of mail,
while the Britain, reaching Halifax
on Saturday, broiighi eighteen carloads, Ivaity-ninc in all, or six
carloads more ihan hist year. The
Orainpinn, arriving on Christmas day
and tlie Scandinavian, about Saturday, win hove a small amount of delayed mail.
The heavy British mails are accounted for, of course, by the largely
Increased Immigration during rcivnt
years, and lhe fact that parcels post
rates between the old country anal
Canada nre at present much cheaper
relatively Ihan rates in Canada.
Then, loo, lhe people at home in Uie
old land feel it a duty lo cheer anal
comfort those u ho have gone s0 far
away. When the Britain arrivul on
Saturday two special trains carried
Ibi' mail lo Montreal. Fr0m there
on a special train carried lhe western mail to Winnipeg.
An Interesting feature of the early
Christmas mails was the carload for
•lapan and China that was received
from lhe boat at Halifax a few weeks
ae;o and sent across to Vancouver to
catch the Pacific liner.
Koine 1,200 or l.nno extra clerks
were taken! on at post oiTices in all
cities and larger towns to help
handle the Christmas rush. In all
lhe busier centres the staffs are larger than last year. In Montreal
250 extra clerks are employed, in To-
ronlo 200, and similar Increases are
made in (at her place's.

the conclusions reached as a result nf

Canadians are large cvr.t>umers ot

It   may  In* noted  that   the  in.Teas.ii
consumption per capita between   the

cities,      Farmers generally, are eating more cg.-s than ever before.       In
many rural districts, it is practically I
impossible tn secure fresh meat       at ■
certain seasons ol the year    At such '
times eggs are usually plentiful    and
are used freely.
In the cities wiib the steadily increasing price ol meat, even though
eggs may be high in proportion, the
fact tliat eggs are such a wholesome
and nourishing food, and that they
cun be served in such a -ariety ot
ways and prepared with such little
labor, keeps them m constant and

a,rae would expect.
From information in the possession
of tin- Uvea stock branrh, it is estimated that in the summer time „ot over
33 per cent of the eggs rerelved in
the large markets grade "select."
About 40 per cent grade "stale,"
approximately 17 per cent "very
stale-." 5 per cent "dirty" and
"broken.'' and 5 per cent "bad."
Some dealers state that as high as
10 to 12 per rent ol their receipts
prove, upon examination, to be whol-
inportcd anJ ly unfit for food. This latter is a
as feature that those who criticise the
present high prices do not seem to
baee taken into eonsideration.
In conclusion, it is evident that tbe
most salient ieature oi the wholo
ajiiestion is the gold-n opportunity
for the (ami,-™ and others to increase
their poultry plants and take advantage of the high prices prevailing for
poultry aad poultry produe-ts.
Every farmer should ke-ep at least
aine hundreyl hens. Thi' amount ol

reasonable success the revenue ob*

readily available than from any other

opinion that first, the government
should provide thc land for lhe ac
tual settler and then if he needs aid,
which Is more eloitbtf.it under those
conditions, be> prepared to furnish
that as well. The article Is reproduced in another column ol tbis issue.
The Week realizes that the "actual
settler" is being alienated from Hritish Columbia lands. What is needed
most is a sweeping homestead law
which iroulil people vast tracts ol
idle land in this province. The present policy is to sell, to sell everything that will bring money into, the
coffers of a fast bankrupting government. .The heritage of this wonderful province is being dissipated and
homeseckers arc being driven away,
lands arc held in enormous holdings
by thc speculators and capitalists
and the cold shoulder is turned on
the man who seeks to get on the land
and produce something.
With the announcement which has
just been made public that a sub port

"The policy I gave you at this moment, the policy I believe every patriot in Canada ought to support, and
the policy I believe it to be the duty
of the government to immediately inaugurate, is a policy of absolutely
free food—food free from customs
duties."—Rt, Hon. Sir Wilfrid, Laurier at the banquet of the Liberal
Club Federation at Hamilton, (mt.,
on November 26th, 1913.
"Europe, is ana armed camp. Its
leading nations spend Irom a third to
a hall of their revenues In munitions
of -war. ... I don't believe any
one ol them contemplates aggression.
They are only, distrustful, and because, theji dare not join hands and
work together lor good—this is what
they call "The European Concert."
Sir, it is not a concert but a furnace,
and yet It is into this, furnace that
the government would lead us. If I
speak strongly on this subject it is
because I believe in the principle of
Liberalism; thc principle ol autonomy
and- self-government; lhe only policy
which will ever be accepted by thc
Canadian people—Sir Wilfrid Laurier
at Hamilton, November 26th, 1913.
"Stand to your ideals. Stand fast,
stand true. Fulfill tlie great duties
that belong to British citizenship.
Keep your ideal before you like the
cloud by day and the pillar of fire by
night, which guided the people of
Cod from thc tribulation of bondage.
Let all together, young and old, join
Jiand.i. ffird your loins, ihuckle on
your armor, unfurl our standard and
go forward together in service in
earnest, whole-hearted, unselfish, service tor Canada first, Canada last
and Canada tor ever."—Sir Wilfrid
When others were in doubt Sir
Wilfrid Laurier saw clearly that
there could be no permanent unity
among the free peoples ol thc empire
expert upon the basis ol an equality
in status ol all the free and self-governing portions of the empire. He
realized that thc status ol Canada
must be changed Irom that ol & polony to a free nation within thc empire; that this change should be
brought about, not by legislative enactment, but by the demand on our
part for a new status, persisted in
until the people ol Canada were convinced ol its necessity, and persisted
until the people ol Oreat Britain
wero convinced that It was right.
His steady pursuit ol this policy until the new status was recognized and
aexicpted constitutes one ol his greatest achievements."—Mr. N. W. Rowell, K.C., M.P.]'.
"Let us not forget Liberalism is
the creed ol the democracy, and the
democracy has not yet come to Its
own. It is the party ol progress."—
Mr. N. W. Rowell, K.C., M.P.P.
A few days ago a steam trawler
came into Hawkesbury, N. S., with
180,000 pounds ol rash aboard. Other
trawlers came In with equally large
catches. This bountilul harvest ol
thc Canadian waters eased the burden ol high living ot the Canadian
consumer by not one single cent.
They did not eat the fish,and prices
remained stationary.
Every pound ol thc catch went to
tho I). S., and not one cent ol duty
was paid on it. The Canadian fish-
erics benefitted American consumers.
Had this been an American trawler,
fishing in U, S. waters, it would have
paid in Ihe neighborhood ot 11,800
duty belore the fish could reach thc
Canadian meal table.

Rapidly - giowing interest iu fire
prevention has led to clover analysis
nf the causes aaf fires. It had long
been popular to attribute blazes
which could not be otherwise accounted lot to, the gnawing ol matches by rats and mice. Nearly all
lires which started in partitions or
outrof-the-way places were easily explained in this way, and it is probable that many which were due lo
carelessness or to faulty or doterlor-
atlng electric wiring were charged up
to the convenient rodent hazard.
The proportion of lires accounted
lor in this way became so large tliat
the attention of thc fire prevention
experts was attracted, and finally
experiments were made which showed
tliat the theory was merely a myth.
Hundreds ol rats and mice, were
starved to death, with matches ais
thc only articles they could gnaw,
and in not a single case was a match
ignited or any c-vielence of the iteolh
ol the animals. These experiment
scientifically conducted by technical
experts, show that ingredients ar
used in tho modern match compost
tion whose odor, fumes and tasta'
while not poisonous, are strangle repugnant and obnoxious to rnts and
mice, and roilents will starve to
death before thoy will attempt la
gnaw such chemical rompe/iiKls.
ln order to determine this lact ti
series of experiments was recently
conducted. A number of rats ami
mice wero caught in wire traps, the
(raps being Inspected dally. Tha' animals caught were transferred t(, separate cages, with one ia each, the
four skies of the cages being compose.! of tile and the ends being made
ol wire. These cages were located
in a safely-guarded place and each
animal was kept a determined lenglh
ol time without food or water. In
each cage 150 thoroughly seasoned
white parlor or douhliMlroppeei matches were then placed, with a small
quantity ol straw, the latter in order to facilitate evidence of fire in
ease of any ignition. No tood or
w-ater was placed in the cages at
any time. Exact records ol the
tests were kept, tlw universal result
being that while the rodents lived
Irom one to live days alter the
matches ami straw had heen placed
in their cages, in no case was there
any fire or even any signs ol the
match heads having been gnawed.
During the present year A. II.
Nlickollc, chemical engineer ol the
Underwriter's Laboratories, visited
one ol the leading match factories iu
order to conduct a series of chtmllotil
tests of the composition of lhe
matches made, with a view to Introducing the label Systran guaranteeing
lhat. tbey had been prepared in. accordance with lire prevention regulations. Being deeply Interested in
the question of fire hazards, he repeated this test on rats and mice,
with such changes as he saw fit lo
make as- to details of the construction of the cages and oilier methods
of rendering the test scientifically
conclusive. He used not only phosphorus but also the very latest non-
poisonous sesqail-sillphldc matches.and
thc results fully corroborated thc
previous records. His report to the
council of the laboratories said:
"The results ol thc cutting tests
show that types A, II. am! C. are
safeguarded sufficiently in respect to
ignition by friction to make It difficult lor a rat or mouse to ignite the
composition by gnawing. The bulb of
type D. is practically non-ignitible by
gnawing. It is considered improbable tbat a rat ot mouse would
gnaw thc phosphorous tip which is

Editor Herald'.
Dear Sir: May 1 ask for space in
which to make a few comments an
the article over the signature "Interested" in your issue of 4th inst. I
do not wish to keep, up anything in
thc nature ot controversy, but simply
to make our position clear.
When 1 stated tluit no Christian
Scientist ever denies medical attention to anyone that desires it, I did
not mean to imply that medicine and
Christian Science could be availed of
at tlio same time, but that we should
give up the cose at once to medicine,
our text-book "Science and Health,
Witli Key to the Scriptures," by
Mrs. Eddy, states on page 143, "If
patients fail to experience the healing)
power of Christian Science, and tliin'e
that they can be benefited by certain
physical methods of medical treat
ment, Ihi'n Ihe Mlnd-physloian should
give np such cases, and lra™ inv'alhls
free to resort to whatever other systems Ihey fancy will afford relict."
If there wus any evidence that thc
he'aling which was such a largo part
ol Jesus' ministry was anything but
purely spiritual, und wc were not
so plainly told to do the works He
did, and Hut wc should be able to do
them and even greater works II we
believed on Him (understood His
teaching), there might be some reason for contending that wc were
obeying the command to "Heal thc
sick" by using medical means, and
neglecting to do so when using spiritual means alone. Spiritual healing
was practised in the early churcb lor
some three hundred years, and has
been revived in Christian Science.
Some two years ago the enemies of
Christian Science published a list ot
some thirty-two cases of children
who had died of zymotic diseases
while under Christian Scienco treatment in the whole United States during the previous thirteen years. Tlie
vital statistics lor thc city ol New
York that year showed that some
27,000 similar cases had lieen lost in
tliat city in the one year. At least
the majority ol these must have been
under mistical treatment.
I think it is very far fetched to
take thc quotation from Matt. 9-13:
"They that be Whole need not a physician, but tliey that are sick," to
mean that Jesus countenanced medical means. It could only be so
taken if the word physician necessarily moans a doctor of medicine,
lesus is relerred to as The Oreat
Physician, und it cannot be contended that He used medical means. He
always held that Ills works ol healing were tho proof of the truth ol His
teaching, and said that they could be
repeated by those who believed on
Him, and sue-h works were considered
the necessary proot ol Christianity in
the early,church, and should bo s0

When tho Horden government came
to office in October, 11111, they found
jthe treasury full, the revenue buoyant, trade increasing, and prosperity
everywhere. Canada had never been
in such n happy condition as it was
previous to the time that Sir Wilfrid
Laurier laid down the reins ol office.
No matter how Premier Borden and
his heterogenous group ol colleagues
might blunder ihey could not immediately stem the tide of prosperity.
They blundered blindly along for a
year or more, hoping that luck would
pull them through. They played
ducks and drakes with the treasury,
grabbed everything in sight and borrowed in Kngland when funds ran
short; the country's business was
run by deputies nnd occasional ministers, while the rest ot the cabinet enjoyed themselves travelling around i»
private cars and government steamboats.
Hy September last the wave ot Liberal progress and prosperity had
spent its force. There had boon
•nothing done to continue it. From
that time there has been a continual
reversion to the unhappy state of nl-
fairs that obtained prior to the election of thc Liberal government in
In October, 1013, tlw gross revenue
dropped $533,3*18 as compared wilh
the same month of tlie previous year.
In November it dropped $7*12,707.
During 'September, October and November the customs revenue declined
by $2,001,03*1, shewing -that merchants were trimming their sails lor
reduced trade. The puhlic debt in-
crcasi'd $3,527,020 during October and
November. Tho expenditures of tho
government for September, October
and November were Ml,015,fi20, or
