GOLDEN RULE   Peace on earth, good-will to-
SUNDAY ward   men.     At   Christmas
time we think not only of our
family and friends but of those with whom we
are not so well acquainted—life's unfortunates,
the oppressed, the needy and the sick. Ordinarily as we go about our casual duties we are
apt to forget the less happy people about us, our
eyes and minds are so filled with our own little
selves and interests. But at the holiday season
we remember. The light of our happiness shows
up in sharp relief those who live in the darkness,
and their shadows fall against the tapestry of
our lives.
Half-way between the joyous festival of
Thanksgiving and Christmas, on December 6th,
is International Golden Rule Sunday. "Do unto
others as you would be done by" is a universal
law, the same among all peoples and countries,
among all religions and faiths. It is fitting,
therefore, that it be applied at this time to the
children of the world, particularly to the orphans
of the Near East, who are, literally, the world's
wards. Enter into a practical fellowship with
mankind here, and in fifty-one other countries,
by making a practical application of the Golden
Rule. Eat a dinner composed of such simple
food as is provided for the thousands of little one3
in the Near East Relief orphanages. And as
you sit down with your children to your Golden
Rule dinner on the first Sunday in December
think of the parentless little children in the Near
East; and of your plenty give to appease their
needs.
themselves forward. This is the wrong idea.
From the reporter's standpoint, the man who will
stop a newspaper contributor on the street and
inform him that he had been away to some other
:ity, that he is going to get married, or his wife
jntertained friends or presented him with twins,
,s the best man alive. May his likeness increase
;hroughout the earth. If you have done any>
thing mean or disreputable it isn't necessary to
tell it, for there are always plenty of people who
will do that for you. it is the good things about
yourself and your neighborhood that the news
paper man wants you to give him.

is the place and that is the time to get a line on
Ae man himself. If he whistles or hums as
ne spreads the lather or strops his razor, you
can bet the limit on that man.
There is something about shaving, abput hav
ing to keep the mouth shut and a mechanical
process that simply requires certain motions and
leaves the mind free to think, that reveals the
true man as he is. Many a big idea has come
to the man who thinks, while he shaves or is being shaved. During the short period of enforced
relaxation some men have their brightest ideas.
If you chance to be a man and will take this
3having period, short as it is, each morning to
ievelop original thought, you will be amazed how
much you can get out of it. Try it. Under
this plan, shaving will cease to be a bore and become a real joy. Plan some helpful things as
you study your face in the glass. Get something out of your morning shave besides the mere
removal of yesterday's growth of beard. But
be careful and don't cut yourself.

ARTICLE No. 4
Is it more difficult to play the dummy
hand against twqjjpponentj or fur the
two opponents to play against the de*
chtror? Tint quafftlOn ffQfl been thc
cause of much discussion but to tlie
writer there seems only one answer, li
is much moredilTu >ilt fur the opponents
of the declarer. The latter cm see his
twenty-six cards and should know the
best n.iy of combining them to the besl
advantage. lie is not in thc dark as are
his opp uient.s for they must guess as
lo i !ic other's holding and they are just
as apt to guess wrong as right. Also, in
the opening lead, the opponents of the
declarer .ire at a disadvantage. If p.iri-
ncr has not bid, what should be the
ojx-iung lead? This is a question thit
puzzles the experts at times but the
average player can greatly overcome
this difficulty by the carr .'ui study of a
goud table of leads. In playing again-*-!
thc declarer, try to convey as much
information as possible to your partner
by use of conventional leads and discards. Watch your partner's play ami
that of the declarer very closely. Try
not only to make every play of your
own convey information to your pan
ner, but try also to learn something
ircm every play of your partner and of
■ he declarer.
The following hand looks easy but
nnlris tbe proper lead is made, tha
^ame is lost:
Hearts—Q, J, 8
CtoBs—7,4, 2
Diamonds— K, 10,7,4,2
Spades-], 4
I he dealer bid one spade and all passed.
What is tin* correct opening lead with
the above hand? The correct lead is the
queen of hc-.irts. Any other lead with
this hand would have lost game. Tie
player w ho held it opened the four of
diamonds, a \ cry bid lead. Never open
a suit containing the king against a suit
bid, if there is any other possible lead.
It is n<\ir1y always a trick loser.
The writer hasorctcionally mentioned
thc Law of Symmetry in these articles.
This Law is, in effect, a theory that
there is a symmetrical relation existing
between the distribution of the four
suits in any one of the hands and the
distribution of any one of the four suits
amony thc four hands. This symmetrical relation is well exemplified by tb*
distribution of the following hand which
came up recently in actual play:
Hearts —J, 0, fi
Clubs — Q, 10,8.6,5
Diamonds — Q, J, 9, S
Spades — 7
Hearts-r-Q
Clubs —K, J, 7,4
Diamonds — A, 8, 7, 6, 2
Spades — 5, 4, 3
Hearts - K, 10,7,5,8
Clubs —2
Diamonds — K, 10.8
Spades - I, 9, i, 8
Hearts —A, 8, 4, 2
Clubs — A, 9, 3
Diamonds— 4
Spades — A, K, Q, 10, 6
>"■» a&
No score, rubber hame. 7. deah and bid
one bnade. All passed and A opened the
six of clubs. Z won the trick with thu
nine of clubs and proceeded to look the
hand over. What would, you figure as
to probable distribution and correct
play of the hand? Z should note that
his own hand and Y's were divided
5-4-3-1. He also noted that A opened
the six of clubs and that H played the
deuce, If B had held two clubs, he
tyoutd have started an echo to show his
partner that he could trump the third
round of clubs so his play of the deuce
indicated a singleton. Z, therefore, fiu-
uredthat the clubs were divided 5-4 -.VI.
lie holds five spades and his du in nr,
three so that if A also held a singleton,
it must be in spades. Therefore the
spades must be divider) 5-4-1-1. His
heart and diamond holding and that of
the dummy also indicated a possibility
that these suits were divided 5-4-3-L
/., therefore, decided to play accordingly. At the second trick he led the ace of
hearts and then a low heart trumping
in dummy. He then led a low club
which R trumped. On this trick Z
played hi* ace of clubs ao that he could
finesse the king j.t< k later, No matter
what li now plays Z must make a small
slam. Figure it OUt. The hand isremark-
able in that after the first lead the distribution of all four suits ran be so
accurately determined, It is also a re-
nuik.tlile illustration of the Law of
Symmetry. All of the four suits and all
of (he four hands have the same distribution, 5-4-3-1. It is the first time
that the writer ever hu noted such ft
unique hand.
Hearts-J, 10

There are no trumps and Z is in the
lead. How can YZ win all the tricks
against any defense? Z should lead the
hand with the queen. Y should then
jack of clubs and win the trick in Y
the qi
lead the nine of clubson which Z should
discard the five of diamonds. A in now
up against a discard. If he discards a
heart, Y will play the queen of hearts
and bad a spade so that Z's nine of
hearts will be good. If A discards a diamond, both of Y's diamonds will be
spade,
pades will he good. -**2y of the three
discards, therefore, will lay A's hand
open ton loss of a trick. Suppose he discards a heart, Y plays the queen and
then plays the five of spades, Z wins
thc trick and leads the nine of hearts.
What can A now discard but a spade
or a diamond? If the former, Z's spade
is good; if the latter, Y's diamonds i
good so that YZ must win the t
of tbe tricks. PAGE FOUR

COURTENAY.—Mr. John Crockett
is evidently at last convinced that
the mechanical plough is in some
instances at least, an advantage tn
the horse drawn implement. Mr,
Bob Woods has just been demonstrating on some twenty acres of Mr.
Crockett's farm at Grantham where
three acres have been ploughed in
a day which would have kept a team
very  busy  ploughing  one acre.

until  miil-night.
SOCIAL AUCTION AND
SUPPER SUCCESSFUL

DREDGING AT
COURTENAY RIVER
PROVEN EXCELLENT
(Continued Prom I'age One)
eii Unit ihe Dominion Department of
Public Works had apparently, by
means of Its district engineer, made
a very satisfactory and business-like
contract with tho dredging company,
hut only nfter a very considerable
reduction had been effected ln the
price originally asked by the dredging company, the reductions having
been insisted on by the engineer before the work  was allowed to start.
The meeting opened  under threat-
| ening  clouds    nt    misunderstanding,
I hut owing to thc diplomatic  chair-
j manshlp nf Mr. Duncan, these clouds
gradually  melted  away, and  by the
I time   a   hearty   vote   of   thanks   had
been tendered Mr. Neill and the engineers for their prompt response to
the Invitation to meet the Courtenay
people,  the  skies   were  clear  of  all
misunderstandings.
Il is Quite likely that arrangements
•vlll now lie made whereby the material ill edged from the river bed at
the Government wharf will be taken
b/ the city authorities and utilized
for making tlie necessary fills adjacent to the dredging operations,
provided the material is suitable for
the   purpose.

Golden Rule
Suits and T   Jl Overcoats
QUESTION?
Why Should You Patronise the Golden Rule Tailors?
THERE ARE MANY REASONS
BECAUSE—They are out to give a square deal to
every Customer. Putting the Golden Rule into
effect in every case.
BECAUSE—By buying British materials, direct from
the mills and in large quantities, they cut out the
Middle Man's profit.
BECAUSE—They employ onlyWhite Union Labor.
Every tailor in their employ being absolutely
efficient.
BECAUSE—It is the finished article that counts,
and they insist on their agents giving every customer 100",- (one hundred per cent.), satisfaction
at any cost.
.BECAUSE—They are out to cut high prices. Prove
this for yourself by comparing the quality of
material and prices with that of other firms.
BECAUSE—The highest priced Suit is only $45.00,
and everything in this suit—material, fittings,
and workmanship is of the Very Best.
BECAUSE—You don't have the trouble of going
"down town" to make your purchase; but our
Agent will call at your home, where you can be
assisted by your friends in making your choice
of material.
BECAUSE—There are 300 different lines to choose
from—ranging in prices from $29.00 to $45.00,
and styles to suit all tastes.
AND—A trial order will convince you of these facts.
Mr. J. McCartney, our factory expert, will be at the
Union Hotel, Cumberland, on Monday, Tuesday and
Wednesday of next week.
This is a fine opportunity to get your Suit or Over-
Coat for Xmas, or if you leave your name and address
at the Hotel our Agent will call at your home.
