WEDDING BELLS
A wedding was solemnized ac
the home of Mr. and Mrs. John
McKenzie on the morning of the
15th., inst., when their daughter,
Margaret Cowan-Smith, was united in marriage to Mr. J. H. McMillan, manager of Five and Six
mines of the Canadian Colleries
Company. Miss Anna McMillan,
of Victoria, sister of the groom,
acted as bridesmaid, and Mr.
Fred McKenzie, brother of the
bride, assisted the bridegroom-
The bride who was given away by
her father, Mr. John McKenzie,
wore a suit of London Smoke
broadcloth, handsomely braided,
with hat of white satin faced
with pink and trimmed with pink
velvet flowers. The bridesmaid
was gowned in pink messaline
silk, with overdress of embroidered net trimmed with pink ros-
1 es. The bride and bridesmaid
carried boquets of carnations and
roses. The bride's mother was
gowned in a grey figure crepe de
chene, veiled with grey vinon
and touches of purple.
The Rev. Jas. Hood officiated,
and immediately after the ceremony the wedding party adjourned to Mr. Halliday's tearooms, where a sumptuous breakfast was served.
Mr. "and Mrs. McMillan left by
the noon train for Victoria, and
will visit Seattle and Vancouver
before returning to take up their
residence on Dunsmuir Avenue.
The presents were numerous
and costly.
The fifth episode of the Broken
Coin is entitled "The Underground Foe," and contains many
exciting scenes of the fight with
apaches in their undergroud retreat. As usual with this series
the episode ends with a 'strong
situation which makes one anxious for the next one. "Frederick is about to put Kitty up
through the sewer entrance and
get out himself when he comes
face to face with the remainder
of the gang. Surrounded on all
sides he looks up at Kitty and
smiles, as the episode ends."
A very enjoyable dance was
held in the West Cumberland
Band Hall on Wednesday evening under the management of
the Young Ladies Basketball
Club.

CLOSINOJXERCISES
At the closing exercises of the
Cumberland Public Schools yesterday the pupils received 64
boxes of Japanese oranges donated by the busines houses of the
city. The pupils wish to thank
Mr. W. Potter, the janitor for
his kindness in soliciting and
collecting the oranges and also
the merchants for their donation.
On Thursday evening the pupils of Division II, of the Cumberland "Public School, of which
Miss O'Nejl is the teacher, held
a very enjoyable entertainment
in the school rooms. A large
hmnber of visitors were present
to witness the closing exercises
preceeding the Xmas vacation.
The entertainment, which consisted of recitations, songs and
dialogues, was very creditably
presented, and reflects credit on
the teacher and pupiis, and\ judging from its reception, the innovation was a success in every
way. The room was tastefully
decorated for the occasion, the
work being performed outside
school hours. An interesting event took place during the evening, being the presentation to Albert Winningham of a souvenir
given by his teacher for the highest marks in efficiency. Rev. H.
Wilson made the presentation
with a very appropriate address.

THE WEEK BEFORE CHRISTMAS
It is the week before Christmas.
The center of Canadian thought
is now not far away but is centered in each Canadian home. It
glows about father and mother
and brother and sister and shines
with brighter radience, for it is
the self-centered thought of love.
The very air is surcharged with
kindness to others. All the
thoughts of this week will be
aiout what Mary will be most
pleased with and how happy
mother will be when she sees
that nice—but that's telling, and
half the pleasure comes from the
concealment. Half the good of
giving comes from keeping the
left hand from knowing what the
right hand is doing. Nobody
doubts the pleasure of Christmas
morning, but the pleasure of the
week before is just as intense
and is longer drawn out. The
morning of Christmas day is rich
in its reverence and smiles, but
the week before Christmas is educational to the soul and heart.
The heart begins to sprout at
Thanksgiving and it swells until the week before Christmas,
when it is ready to burst out into
full bloom from the accumulated
sap of human kindness by which
it has been fed. The week before Christmas has never had it?
dues. The brightest Christmas
that ever happened was some
twenty or fifty years ago—it is
tedious to count dates. You remember all about it. You were
a little thing, but you never in
afterlife were quite so important
to yourself. There were whisperings which ceased when you entered the room and when you
woke up about midnight you
found the lamp still burning and
your mother still up and working
on something that she put under
the chair when you turned over

in your bed. The old turkey gobbler in the pen was gobbling all
day long to his former associates
on the outside and eating corn
with a gluttony which was to
bring its own recompense. You
found out for the first time that
the business world had been working overtime all year especially
to stock up on Christmas gifts
for boys and girls. You had your
own gifts for the others hidden
where even one of Poe's wonderful detectives could not have
found them—in :he middle of
the woodpile or hung down in the
unused stock well in the field.
There is never a week before
Christmas to equal those that
came then.
Christmas tide has a two-fold
interest, a material and a spiritual. Some love it because it
"comes but once a year, and
when it comes it brings good
cheer," others, because it is preeminently the season of universal reconciliation, of "peace on
earth, goodwill toward men."
Families may be scattered during'
the rest of the year but at this
time their membeis try to unite,
and, where this is impossible,
the exiled ones turn their faces
longingly toward hearth and
home; All the world keeps
Christmas day. From the land
of the midnight sun to the sunny
south of perpetual summer is a
far cry. But in the long distance
there is no land where Christmas
is not kept. Its celebration is a
part of the universal history of
the human race. Whatever may
have been its origin and whatever peculiarities may have gathered about it in its adaption to
different people and different circumstances, it is to us Canadians
today a practically national feast.
Better appreciate your mother
before your appreciation of her
will be no kindness to her, and
the post mortem regrets will be
more and mo-e of an agony as the
years pass on. Big headstones
of Aberdeen and the best epitaphs
which the family put together
could compose and a garland of
the whitest roses from the conservatory are often the attempt
to atone for the thanks we ought
to have uttered in living ears and
the kind words that would have
done more good than all the calla
lilies ever piled up on the silent
mounds of the cemeteries.
This world is but a stepping
stone of an immortal life. Every
action of our life touches on some
chord that will vibrate in eternity.
There are two many fathers
who will tie up their dog at night
and let the boy run loose. FOUR

DO YOU REALIZE
THE POSSIBILITIES
OF YOUR TELEPHONE?
Why has the telephone become so popular in all
countries? Because it transmits the human quality
of the human voice. . v
When a person is speaking over a telephone, the
tones and accent of the voice are very distinct; each
talker regonizes instantantly the voice of the other.
That*s what makes long distance telephoning so
satisfactory. You know whom you are talking to,
you know your message is being receivey, and you
get your answer.   All in a moment's time.

USELESS GIVING
There ia a marked return this
year to the real and original spirit
of Christmas.   People have banded themselves together into societies for the prevention of useless giving.   This does not mean
that the splendid custom of exchanging gifts with loved ones
and friends is to be discontinued
or discouraged in the least.   It
simply means that people are putting more love and less money
into their Christmas packages;
that they are cutting out the perfunctory giving to people from
whom they may possibly receive
a present and to whom they give
a present simply to be on the safe
side.   There is none of the real
spirit of Christmas in this. Every
gift made at this time should carry the heart with it.   A gift
which is made to impress somebody with our ability ,to afford
things, or that is sent out simply
to offset some gift that may be
received, is simply en abuse of
the most gracious custom and the
most gracious day.   People are
turning time back a few centuries and remembering that Christmas is a day in honor of Him who
went about doing good and that
a real Christmas gift should carry with it the spirit of Him who
gave Himself with eVery word
and deed.   This is the check that
has long been needed to an abuse
of a   custom  which keeps the
world   perennially   young   and
make's us remember, just, before
it is too late, that it doesnt matter half so much how wealthy we
are as howfnany friends we have
and how well contented we are
with our lot,  however humble it
may be.

22 Commercial St., Nanaimo
We often find farmers who
lose no chance of securing
machinery for saving labor on
the farm, but don't think any-
any thing about the machine that
saves labor in the house. That
is out of their province and they
don't seem to care enough about
it to give the matter any attention whatever.
The woman who has a home
and keeps it well, has no narrow
sphere in life. In the home is the
hope of the nation and church.
