The great strides made by The
Royal Honk of Canada during Its pas!
fiscal year nre sure to attract special
iitleutioii. not only across the Dominion hut more particularly in all
Uie Important banking centres of the
world. Witli its chain of close to
seven hundred branches, and probably
due In great measure to the Important
connections it has gradually established throughout . the world, the
Royal has drawn to itself u degree of
confidence which must have contributed to a very large extent to the.
uotabligftirogross made under the conditions which hare prevailed. This
is especially reflected in o gain of
as lunch as fifty millions in deposits
Just ns this hns been advantageous
to the Bank, so It will be of benefit tu
the country as a whole. The past
..ear has witnessed a number of unexpected developments In lhe banking
world and It Is well for the Dominion
ihat one of its leading banking institutions con report marked progress,
ns well as a position of such unusual
strength.
To the management it should be a
source of great satisfaction to reuli/c
the confidence thnt is everywhere being placed in lhe Bank.

THE MERRY-GO-ROUND
We commence another year. Old
1923, with all its mistakes ond errors,
hos been shoved into the discards.
The holly wreaths nnd tinsel, that
glittered so brightly u few days ago.
have landed on the ash heap, All
the pretty seals and tissue paper that
held the Christmas gifts have been
swept into the fire nnd vanished up
the chimney, The laughing, happy
hoys and girls will lie hack at school
on Monday, mother has settled down
to the dull routine of getting three
meals a day, and dear old dad is sort
ing the idle of hills and wondering ii
he'll be able lo meet them all. With
a sigh of relief and regret we all get
down to the grind again nnd face the
dreary days and weeks that lie between us and the coming of spring.
But, after oil, the holiday season is
a wonderful thing. It breaks the
monotony of routine duties, it lifts
us out of ourselves, it inspires us fo
generous deeds nnd puts the cop sheaf
on the harvest wo have been gathering throughout Ihe year. Wouldn't
it be a sorry old existence if we never
had a day of Bunshlne? Wouldn't it
be a hot dusty and tiresome journey
if it never rained? That's the way
it Is wlih Christmas. Along comes
thc best holiday of the year and Just
lifts us out of the rut. The kiddies
ask you about Santa Claus, the older
children come home from college, you
nearly go crazy trying to lind o real
gift for mother. Then the dny dawns
and you smell the odor of cedar and
burning candles. You stick around
home all day and get down on your
knees and try to make the electric
train run. You ent too much and
smoke too many cigars and go to hed
with a headnche. Then the holidays
drag along and New Year's conies and
you do It all over again, though not
so strenuously. Then the day after
New Year's dawns and you go down
to the office, the Btorc or the shop.
The big new calendar on the wall
geets you with a Bmlle. You determine that the Inventory shall be the
most thorough you've ever taken. You
close the hooks nnd complete lhe trial
balance. Now. oil soils ore set and
you're ready for the voyage of 1021.
But you haven't gone very far until
you hit that some old rock that Jarred
you last February, but you get afloat
and are swept into the terrible gales
of March, then thc April rolns stain
your sails and the old boat looks Just
like she did on the voyage of 1923,
and all the other years before. Before you know it you're mowing the
lawn nnd pulling up the lly screens
again. Then comes June and Jane
has to have a new dreBS for commencement. Then the first of July,
Dominion Day! Now it's August and
lime to go Benin'. What? The old
school bell ls ringing agnln and all
the kids need shoes. And here comes
Hallowe'en and time to start the furnace. Good lands, It can't he Thanksgiving Is here once more and turkeys
still selling ot forty cents a pound.
And then the Christmas lights are
shining In the store windows ami
you've got to commence worrying once
more about what you are going to give
mother, Happy New Year! Hut If
you'll look around you'll find every |
cloud Is silver lined. And of yourself It may be said. "Cheer up. old
scout .you'll soon be dead."
KEEP MUM ABOUT IT
It is easier to get into a rut than
ll is to gel out of it. A young man
starts out In life, ambitious to make
something uut of himself; he pushes
ahead for a time and then gets into a
narrow, commonplace groove. Nine
times out of ten he'll stay there and
Uie longer he stays the deeper becomes the rut. After a time, he gels
so fur down thai he does not know
there is a world outside of his narrow
con fines.
Get out uf the rut and make some,
tiling out of yourself. Don t be content to be a nobody hut try to be a
somebody aud keep trying until you
succeed. The soldier who Ib content
tu spend all his time in the barracks
will never win fame and glory. If he
wants that, he must get into the
thickest of the fruy and light. So It
Is with the battle of life.
"Hut I can't afford io take any
chances iu life. 1 hnve so many re-
sponsllilitlcB and must plod along in
tiie beaten track because of theni."
Such remarks as these are often made
as excuses by those living in the ruts
of life. If you have said the same
thing yourself, then don't believe
yourself.
Responsibilities stimulate a man to
greater effort; a good wife and loving
children never kept a man down. The
whole truth of thc matter Is that It
is easier lo stay in the rut, but you
haven't the moral courage to admit lt.
The only way to get out of the rut
1b to mako the effort yourself. Don't
wait for some friend to pull you out;
If you do you'll wait ln vain. Just
scramble up toward the higher ground
and you'll find many a helping hand,
but the helping hands wont reach
down into the rut and drag out a
man who doesn't want to be disturbed.

painful accident near the plateau ou

To call a man a liar Is only expressing your opinion, and lt may
not be worth a curse after you have

A Great Tribute to a Great Canadian
, SIR HENRY THORNTON'S
I    MESSAGE TO EMPLOYEES

Ills   dl'Htll.
THK death of Lord Shauirhnessy
' * in Montreal, on December 10th,
brought back into the public mind
something of thc history of those
days, Immediately following upon
Confederation, in whicli Canada
took her first strides towards nationhood. He was one of the last
of that remarkable group of piofl-
eers with imagination to see Canada's potential future and Ihe force
of character to give it such a start
towards realization as did the build-
ling of the Canadian- Pacific Railway. Great men all, Lord Shaughnessy was as great a nation builder
as any, but his personality lost northing of its humanity as his greatness became more widely recog-
Inlzed.
I The tribute paid his memory by
E. W Beatty. President of the
Canadian Pacific Railway, is a just
[appreciation by one who knew him
as Intimately as another man could.
Mi   Beatty said:—
"The death of Lord Shaughnessy
has removed from Canadian life its
most outstanding figure. Public
men have come and gone, and their
respective merits ns I think have
been duly appreciated by thc people
of this country. But in i/i single
instance, *n far as my observation
goes, has one mar: combined the
achievement, the mentality, the
force of character and the human
qualities of generosity, charity and
consideration for his fellow-men in
the same degree as the late Chairman of tin Canadian Pacific Railway
"Always la was a strict disciplinarian, but his discipline was impersonal and his warm Irish disposition lel'li-ctcd   itself   in   numerous
acts ol kindness, which increased
the loyalty lu- always inspired in
those who were associated with
him.
"lie possessed in a remarkable
degree an acuteness of mental reasoning which few men enjoy. Nothing was overlooked by him, and no
act that was meritorious escaped his commendation. Thoroughly
schooled as he was in the advantages of good reading, he became a
great student of literature and a
sagacious critic of public affairs.
To those who knew him intimately
his qualities of sympathy and
charity were perhaps the most impressive.
"He had a unique career, filled
with initiative, enterprise and courage. Having run the three-score
years and ten he has departed with
a record that few Canadians have
ever made, and all his accomplishments and successes were clean.
Never in his official or his personal
life has a suggestion been made
against the complete integrity that
characterized all his actions.
"In Lord Shaughnessy, Canada
loses its most distinguished, most
loyal and most efficient citizen."
Mr. Beatty had a final interview
with Lord Shaughnessy at his bedside a few hours before his death,
and at a time when Lord Shaugh-
.R-ssy realized that he had only a
few hours to live.
"Lord Shaughnessy's last words
to me," said Mr. Beatty, "were
significant of sentiments which had
actuated him in his administration
of the company over a long period
of years. They were: "Maintain
the property. It is a great Canadian property, and a great Canadian enterprise."

What Children Should Read
Demands Parents' Attention
What children like to rend and what
they ought  io read demands  the attention of parents who appreciate the,
Importance thai reading plays in the !
development of children, says a writer .
in tiie Christian Science Moniior.
In doing this It Is necessary to take
into account tbe fact thai even anion,;
children so young thai they can as-'
simllnte the written word only tljrough
hearing it read .or who are Just aide
to spell out the words themselves In
the large type volumes given ihcni for
their doloctallon .conditions are lo-
day changed just ns they nre with us.

liuillled lo Real I
The children themselves, no matter
bow young, have rights which are entitled lo respect. Seeds planted
flourish long utter the fact of their,
planting has been forgotten, and tha
opportunity to sow flowers of permanent beauty and fragrance Is loo
rich tn be neglected. Vet with this
opportunity must come a realization
that the children have likes and dislikes ns well an rights, and only thai
parent who studies lhe problem from
the child's standpoint as well as from
his own is fully performing his prescribed function, First of ull. nny
child not mentally deficient is quhk
to recognize and to resent moral ion. j
sons sugar-coated in rhyme or proso. I
if persisted in on Hie part of the
pai-em the result Is to give tbe child
an idea that all literature is moral
philosophy, and this Is hound to serve
as a harrier in ills natural approach
io literature later on In life. Curiously enough the average parent forgets his own childhood and accepts
the erroneous idea that what pleases
and interests him will be equally acceptable to the child. .Stevenson's
"Child Garden of Verse" may well be
cited as a ease ill point, Charming
as these verses are to adults, nii'l
skilfully us the author has attempted
to conceal his practical moral advice,
Intelligent children are iiuii-k to sense
the trick and because of their resent-
moul form a dislike for this volume
which gives exquisite pleasure to
children of advanced years.
Ilcnliu of liungiiiulnlmi
Karly childhood is passed in a self-
createtd realm of Imagination Into
which but few parents nre able to
enter. Every object in the nursery,
the walls themselves, possess niean-
ings to the childish mind full of fanciful imagination nnd entirely unrecognized on the part of his ciders.
When literature enters this realm of
Imagination It must make itself n part
of it or It enters as a stranger. The
child instinctively Is a creator aud
what he looks for lu literature ls
Something upon which to base his
creation, or something which enables
lihn to carry it a step beyond. If this
fact be home In mind the parent's
task Is simply that of selection and
guidance. Tbe child asks no more
than this, being quite competent with
his own creative Imagination to supply to bis personal satisfaction what
to the older mind may seem lo bo
lacking,

Little things are the greatest in the
art of the motion picture according
to Virginia Valll, the Universal star
who is credited with braliiH as well as
beauty. In fact, one gets the Impression trom her observations that
the art of pictures is an extension of
the well known atomic theory.
"A great play," says Virginia, "can
not depend alone on smashing climaxes, torrential floods of human emotion, or soul-gripping situations—but
on little things that ill themselves are
as nothing but which, fitted together,
make life. For life and not heroics,
ls the backbone of the play.
"In every play I have starred In,
and ln every play that I have seen
which proved a real success," says
Miss Valll, "Its success lay in Its being an echo of life. On Uie other
hand, I have seen many remarkable
plays, with situations better than lhe
successful ones; with climaxes better
constructed and motivation bigger,
which, however, fell by the wayside.
They didn't have the little things
"The play we are doing at Universal
City now—'The Signal Tower,' by
Wadsworth Camp Is not going to be
great because of the remarkable conflict of emotions with two men and a
woman in a lonely railroad junction.
It will be great because Director
Brown makes Wallace Berry do little
sleight-of-hand tricks for Fraukle
Darro; because of the little subterfuges the lonely woman reports to in
an attempt to make her bleak home
brighter;  because of a hundred-anil-

one little touches that make her house
a home, and her existence a life—and
not a story.
"The big situations carry the play;
they are indispensable. Gripping
events keep up the interest. But the
little touches, woven together as a
coherent whole, give it life, make it
a living reality.
"The Berry incident in the play
is an Instance. In itself it is a simple
thing. Ile plays the big railroad man
who is regarded as a sort of demigod
by the little child In the lonely tower.
He sits h.. the window, with a trick
cigarette-holder, aud makes his cigarette vanish from it. To the child,
looking on in wide-eyed bewilderment, this seems a miracle.
"The audience will also watch this
touch, hut will not analyze lt. They
will not realize that they are seeing
a practical demonstration of how the
mind of a little child works. Yet-
that touch of life is one of the greatest tilings iu the play. When the
husband comes home from work,
grimy and tired—yes, and cross, as
husbands usually are when Uiey come
home from work—his wife won't let
him sit down to dinner until he's
washed carefully. It wouldn't be life
I if she let him. And it wouldn't be
i life unless he grumbled about lt.
i Wives always make their husbands
I wasli up- and husbands always
grumble about It. Ask any married
I couple. That's why, on the screen,
j it strikes a responsive chord. It
convinces.
| "Unless a play carries conviction,
j all its thrills are useless; mere artl-
! ticial tricks that carry no illusion.
For there Is no Illusion save the illu-
' slon of life.
"Shakespeare knew it; his plays
- have lived for Centuries. Today some
of them seem artificial, It is true, but
only because life has changed; because men have evolved Into different
beings, on the surface, and life of
' Shakespeare's day Is ill spots obsolete. But only the foundation is the
same.
"That is why the little incidents;
the minute touches of human nature,
make a play great. They are worth
everything."

MR. FRANCIS COMPTON
IN "CAPPY RICKS" AT
(LOILO THEATRE
Theatre goers hnve a great treat
in store for them on Thursday, January 10, when Mr. Francis Comptou,
the well known English actor, will
appear with his ulented company at
the Ilo-llo Theatre In "Cappy Hicks".
Mr. Compton and his company have
been playing at the Playhouse, Vlctorin, for the past seven months and
have earned for themselves the most
enviable reputation, only leaving on
account of the theatre changing management and becoming a picture
house. It is hoped that Mr. Compton will be able to arrange to play
in Cumberland every Wednesday in
n new play, in which case, local theatre patrons may be sure of witnessing a well acted, clean, wholesome
and thoroughly amusing entertainments.
Of Mr. Compton's abilities, it is impossible to speak too highly, the
praise showered on him by the press
should he sufficient and for the rest:
of his company it is enough to say
that a better balanced or more capable
body of performers doesn't exist on
the Pacific Coast.
"Cappy Kicks," which Mr. Compton
Is presenting on Thursday, January
10, Is considered the most amusing;
and sfde-splitting comedy written for
many years and is, of course, taken
from the well known "Cappy Ricks''
stories, which appeared In the Saturday Evening Post.
GETTING OUT OF THE RUT
"I can't complain." The man who
makes the slightly ungramntical but
exceeding sensible reply to inquiries
regarding his health and prospects, ib
the kind of a man that the world
wants. Complaining never did nny
permanent good. It may bring temporary relief from those charitably Inclined, but the man who, with a long
face and doleful lone, pours out a tale
of woe to every listening ear, becomes
a nuisance nnd Is avoided whenever
it Is possible to do so.
The world is full of real sympathy
for the unfortunate and the afflicted
who keep a stiff upper lip and make
the best they can of life but It doesn't
believe iu the man who is always saying he has more trouble than anyone
else. There is not a man or woman
In this world, high or low, rich or
poor, who hasn't some trouble to hear.
If you could read the inner secrets of
those you most envy, you would find.
in most cases, that they are undergoing severer trials and greater dilll-
culties than you have or ever will
have, yet they are bearing their burdens bravely and keeping a stiff upper
lip.
Whenever you are tempted to growl
against fate or complain of your lot,
just look around and find out what
others are hearing. You will find
many men, with more brains nnd better education, worse off than you ure.
Then compare your lot with that of
such men, and if you don't quit complaining and go in for rejoicing, there
is something radically wrong with
your mental balance.
When an obstacle gets in your way,
don't waste time and energy In complaining about it. If you can't push
it out of your path, get over it, under
it or around it any way you can—and
leave the obstacle behind you. The
second obstacle will not appear half
ns big if you get past the first, but if
you stand, wringing your hands and
appealing to every one for help to do
what you can do yourself, the first
obstacle will look like a mountain
after a  while.     This Isn't the case,
however, It's only the man becoming
smaller because of inactivity.
Troubles, like storms, don't last,,
hut the man who keeps his woes constantly before him, will not be able
to see the sun when it breaks through
(he clouds. Do the best you can, realizing that others have trials as well
as you can, and after a while your
troubles will disappear or you will
forget all about them. In either caso
you will be happier.
It is a common belief that peacocks'
feathers are unlucky. This is due
to the tradition that the bird opened
the Gate of Paradise to the serpent.
The nick in a coat has been a puzzler to many. It is said to date back
to the time of Napoleon. A general
named Moeaur had many followers.
but they were afraid to openly express sympathy with him. lt was
therefore agreed to put a nick on
their coats as a secret sign. Tho
letter M can be seen in the hippie
representing the Initial letter of the
general's name.
The word "tip" finds its origin In
the fact that restaurant keepers used
to place a box with a slit In it with
the words, "To insure promptness,"
the initials of which spell the now
familiar term of gratitude.
The barber's pole has also a curious history . In other times barbers
were also surgeons, nnd practised the
art of phlebotomy, and a pole wns
given to the patient to hold in his
hand in order to let the blood run
more freely. The pole should, have
a line of blue paint, one-of red and
one of white, winding round Its length
blue, representing the blood ln the
veins, red the blood In the arteries,
and white the bandages.
"Uncle" adopts his familiar sign of
three balls over his shop because tho
balls form part of the old Arms of
Lomhardy, the people there being the
first pawnbrokers in existence.
Men used to get drunk ou whiskey,
and do yet, but, we know of a governor who got drunk on authority.
There Isn't so much difference.
The margin  of profits  made  from

Clover, Alfalfa, Sweet Clover, Alsike

naturally It Is clean vigorous seed
that the grower wishes to secure.
To meet this requirement it is
necessary that seed of strong vitality and free from weed seeds he planted each year, and because all our
present methods of cleaning are somewhat Inadequate, It Is necessary that
the soil he clean. Clean seed and
clean ground are dependent one on the
other. The vigorous growth of newly seeded grass or clover crop which
Is thick enough to occupy the available ground, will do much to smother

tion, including a cleaning crop, clean
farm land will be the result and trom
it will spring clean seed.
It is no small problem to secure
clean seed from much of the grass
and clover crop us harvested. Particularly is this true in connection
with out clover. It Is an easy matter to separate out light material and
oilier foreign matter of a size different from the particular seed we nre
working with. A good tanning mill
with proper adjustment of sieves and
wind velocity will readily make such
a. separation. The grower with tho
ordinary fanning mill ts limited, however, to this separation. Foreign
seeds of a size and weight similar tn
thc seed being cleaned nre beyond tlle
power of his machine to remove. Indeed the separation of some of our
weeds including both noxious and
uim-noxlous weeds seem to bo beyond
the capability of any of the cleaning
machinery now operating commercially. This fact Is reflected in thc
large amount ot seed that has annually to be classified as rejected accord-

oh boys, what a supper. This event
wlll be repeated on the 11th of January again this year and great preparations are being made for the biggest time held this winter in the Valley. The music was nearly forgotten. Doesn't your memory take you

This is to be an honor event, the only

McLEOD'S STORE
COURTENAY, B.C.
The New Year was ushered In at
the Valley Hub In a quiet way, the
only noise of his entry coming from
the steam whistle of the Comox
Creamery Association, and the recently installed siren at the hall of
the Courtenny Volunteer Fire Brigade,
and the intermittent explosion of a
Chinese firecracker here and there.
The weather was too cold for many
people to he on the streets at midnight and no doubt many of those who
were not taking part in Ihe shooting
of Chinese firecrackers were enjoying
shots of a distinctly Scottish manufacture.
Tlle newcomer was ushered in, will
be with us for twelve mouths and on
that account a look Into the future
, might disclose what he has in store
: for the people of Comox Valley. It
is probable that the farming industry
In the Valley has experienced the
worst of the slump that has struck
the agriculturalists all over the con-
- tincnt, and with a reduction of taxes,
! the personal property and real proper! taxes having been reduced fifty
per cent., industrial conditions In tho
, Valley should be materially benefitted.
; The lumbering industry is looking for-
| ward to a prosperous year, with all
: inlerested therein making preparations to log on a large scale, consequently employing more men. the circulation of more money, helping to
increase the contentment of every res-
' Ident in the Valley. Courtenay is
: particularly Interested in these developments for, from as far south as
Bowser, tbe camps make this town
their headquarters. Another development that will be of the greatest
interest to Courtenalns Is that tho
long idle plant of the Courtenay Saw
Mill is once more to become active.
Tliis will mean another payroll here
and added incentive to get In and
dig for more Industrial activity. Another sign of the times ls that the
railway operating to Comox Valley,
despite the fact that motor traffic bas
been in strong competition with lt, haa
beeu sufficiently well patronized to
warrant the officials in making I lie
statement that they are thoroughly
satisfied with business, and that notwithstanding rumors, no curtailment.
of the service to Courtenay Is contemplated. The new freight service
by the way of Courtenay River has
been a development of the past year
and gives every promise of being a
continued success. It cannot be said
that Comox has a bad year ahead lu
fact everything points to thc direct
opposite. A spirit of optimism, of
live co-operation and legitimate advertising—or boosting If one chooses
to call It such—wlll bring greater results as time goes by.
