For some time citizens have been

Interests nf the citizens,
Wo have a city clerk who may be
a very worthy man, but he ls In regular employment at a good salary. He
loses uo lime when work Is slack, but
draws a substantial pay cheque regularly. Apparently bis duties towards
the citizens are not understood. The

that at that time the twoTrustees or

NEW MOTOR HIOHWAV IN JASPER
PARK
JASPER, Alto.—A survey for a possible location for a forty-live mile
stretch of motor road In Jasper National Park from the town of Jasper
to the eastern park boundary is being
carried out by two location survey
parties under the supervision of the
Engineering Service ot the Canadian
National Parks Branch, Department ot
the Interior. Two linos are being run,
one following for a distance of approximately twenty-live miles the
abandoned Grnnd Trunk Pacific and
t'anadian Northern railway beds, and
tlie other running wholly independent
of the old. road beds. By this means
it will be possible to select the most
economical route and at the same time
detormlnc what portions of the abandoned grade may be utilized.
When completed this road will form
and important link in the proposed
lldmonton-Vancouver motor highway.
The Provincial Government of Alberta

It was the last night ot the Old
Year! Knee deep lay the spotless untrodden snow over the fields and
hedges; on tbe branches ot the skeleton-like trees, whose gaunt, grim arms
looted like the antlers of a herd of
deer, hung the frost, in a thousand
crystal stars, that vied with the brilliant beau'.y of their brethren ln
heaven—clear-cut and glittering, they
| gleamed aloft like the supernatural
glory that hovers over somo fairy
j mino.
i    Like to an Egyptian queen canopied
j in   state   sailed   the Won,   floating
as If ll wore ou an ocean   of  blue.
I Over   the     little   peaceful   country
J church she stooped (as If she loved
It), and touched   with   her  beautiful
tips of light its burnished spire that
! shone afar like a polished gem; and
I down below, where the clinging feet
of the ivy climbed higher and higher,
j she threw her majestic glance, which
i at once revealed Its glistening leaves
crowned with their lustrous pyramids
of snow.
It was a lovely night, and one never
to be forgotten. Here, the little
church standing peacefully alone ln
the sweet tranquility of calm, whilst
all around it stretched the Immense
solitude of the fields and woods
covered with a soft white robe of
purity, flung upon the earth as a consecrated marriage-garment trom the
skies. '*
The spirit of the winding river was
caught fast and deftly Imprisoned into
a block of Ice, solid as granite; and
there she lay, like a statue dedicated
to an eternal silence.
Very far off—as far as the human
eye could reach, rose up the great
city, wrapped also in an Impenetrable
garment of white. Like to a city of
the dead, it seemed to loom in the
distance, with its wonderful towers
and turrets vanishing Into cloudland.
On both town and country, the great
heart of Nature brooded ln breathless
expectancy, waiting for the approach
of Death—and yet he lingered.
The minutes departed one by one,
the hours "danced Into light, and died
into the shade," as the sweet-voiced
bells In their windy tower sent out on
their vibrating tongues, the time-old
message that the year was dying, dying, dying! In the sweep of the wandering wind that went ceacefully
ucrosB the churchyard, could be heard
the last heavy gasps that fell one by
one, to be wafted away by invisible
hands Into the fathomless space of a
waiting eternity.
It was a moment of intense sorrow,
counterbalanced by a foretaste of nn
approaching joy as of a cleon white
scroll placed in the hands of each one
of us, to make or mar as one willed;
but the pages of last year's journal,
which, like them, were once fair and
whl.e—where were they? Alas! filled
up and disfigured by blots, that
looked as If many human tears of
agony and shame had fallen upon
them, and sought to erase all that
was black and unseemly there—still
the Btnlns remained, Interspersed, it is
true, by a thread of gold, laid mercifully across in diverse places, emblazoned by a pitying angel's hand at
the command of God.
The Old Year had indeed filled up
his record of joys snd sorrows, of
sinners and saints; and he stood an
old, old man, bent and bowed with
the pressing weight of the world's
grent burdens and perplexities, stooping lo write with a pen of iron tipped with gold, the word "finis" upon
Its last page!
Would any of his words, I wondered,
be found in tbe Book of Life? I
trembled ns I thought of It, for I could
not but remember how many opportunities In the past, which had been
given me wherein io do good, I had
neglected, how many unkind thoughts
and words I had wilfully spoken, how
often 1 had not dono unto my neighbors as I would bo should have done
unto me. But even as I thus sadly
mused—for memory is a two-edged
sword that cuts both ways—I could
see on the edge of the horizon the imperial skirts of the New Year, vaguely
longing for the time when he too
should wield the sceptre of royalty
and the flat of llfo; Impatient for the
beginning ot his reign, and already
armed to cope with difficulties ond
dangers that as yet were lying In ambush.
Slowly tlie little minutes passed
steadily by, and the Old Year stood
with reverently bent head and folded
hands, longing for release. Presently
the church clock pointed to the hour,
and as the strokes fell one by one
like the strokes on an anvil on the
heart, the Old Year calmly and quietly
passed away, In the joy of resignation
singing as he died the swan song of
his BOUl,
" 81c transit Gloria Mundl I

DON'T MISS YOUR "CUE."
I know some folks wbo idly aund ud
moan
That   "good   luck  never  yet  bu
come their way,"
While if they'd open their eyes and
look about,
They'd see him at their side 'moat
every day.
These people stand like sticks along;
life's path,
With  scrawling brows   (the sight
gives one the blues),
While  for "UPtuck"  they can  bit
thank themselves—
They've missed their "cues."
The world was made for busy hands
and brains—
The worthy one who toils Is he who
wins.
How can one hope to win the race of
life
Who  slowly  walks and,  running,
ne'er begins?
Prepare   yourself   to-day for better
work,
Por greater  tasks tbat you  may
have to do;
Then, when your chances come, be
quick to act—
Don't miss your "cue."
I scorn tbe man who bas not "nerve"
to stand
And face his future with a hopeful
eye,
Who drifts along life's tide without
an aim,
And only lives to eat, to drink, and
die.
The world Is full of "chances" by the
score,
For higher alms, more nobler work
and true,
So "learn your part," and be assured
ere long
You'll hear your "cue."
Then let us strive by bonest, faithful
toil
To be as great and noble as   we
can-
It is a duty tbat we owe to our
selves,
To. those we love and to our fellow
man.
Perform your task to-day with patient
care—
Perchance 'twill prove a steplng
stone for you;
Then, wben your chance cpmee for
better work,
Don't miss your "cue."
THK OLD AND NEW ?EAH
Toll them out!   His work Is done,
He'll not see another aun:
Slowly ebbs his life away,
'Tis at last bis burial day.
Long has he been growing old.
Lay him with his fathers cold.
Ill used year!   He might have been
Tar less profitless, I ween,
Had we used him as we ought,
Lovingly, with pains and thought:
Yet for him we'll thankful be,
(There have been far worse than be),
And will watch our old friend die
With a plaintive threnody.
Gravely, In tbe belfry bout
Toll him Out!
Ring him In! the young glad year,
'Welcome tbe new-comer hare,
for he brings, whate'er befall,
Joy to most, and hope to all.
To the worker and the wise,
Fresh new Opportunities,
Brightness to tbe sick and sad,
Further respite to the bad:
With his blank book and his pen
Ready for the deeds of men;
With his sponge to wipe away
Feuds and strifes of yesterday.
Trustfully the youngster greet,
With his white and unsolled feet;
With a hearty clangorous din
Ring hlm in!

Old friend, the time has come to
part;
And yet I cannot let thee go.
Too swift the time has fled, and lo,
1 have not fathomed what thou art!
I si iii not think the tears would start,
Nor ever dreamed I loved thee so!
Old friend the time lios come to part.
Anil yet 1 cannot let thee go!
One last long kiss before they grow
Too fierce, these tuggings at my heart!
One kiss! Alas, too well I know,
Old friend, the time has come to part,
And yet—I cannot let thee go!
THOUGHTS 0> WISDOM
The fool is willing to nay for anything but wisdom; no man buys that
ot* which he supposes himself to have
un abundance already.—W, G. Simms.
!    Wise men are instructed by reason;
j men of less understanding, by exper-
I ience; the most ignorant, by necessity;

The Vamp Is Out
OfJDate
The passing of the fomole vamp
from the moving pictures is In line
with the steady tendency to get back
to wholesome things. The scenario
that blamed the vampire type of woman was echo of the old evangelism
that proclaimed with ridiculous fervor,
the ancient slander thnt woman was
the source of oil evil. Following a
crime the astute detectives were wont
to say, "Find the woman." This
theory dates back to tlie fable of
Kden. Whoever wrote that Btory probably believed that woman has not a
soul.
"The woman tempted me, and I did
eat," the "perfect" man le quoted as
having said. And so the libel has
crawled through the slime ot ages.
A writer of paragraphs has Bald;
"Every great war has been traced to
the depravity of women." He goes on,
in tiie Indulgence of this cheap sort
of claptrap which Ib characteristic ol
his kind, to say, "When a woman
shows her knees you can see the HnlBh
of tier and of the nation as well."
What nation? Among the most virtuous of the nations are some whose
women never wore anything else than
short skirts. And lt is not now, and
never was, what a woman wears that
establishes her worth, or lack of It,
but what she really Is.
If these critics of an austere purity
are right, It is a wonder that womanhood long ago was not driven from
the refuge of nny faith whatever. They
consistently have been set apart as
congcnllully servants and tools ol
whatever devil was to the fore ln any
Human wisdom is the aggregate of
all human experience, constantly accumulating, and selecting, and reorganizing its own materials.—J. Story.
Even the slow man, If possessed of
wisdom, has overtaken the swift in tlle
pursuit, with the aid of the straightforward Justice of the immortal gods.

Wishing You a Prosperous and Happy New Year.
Owing to a number of our readers
being interested in dogs—the better
kind—and on special request we are
publishing a series of short talks on
dogs, taking a different breed each
week. This week we will talk on the
selection of a dog and give a fow
pointers on the Spaniel.
HOW TO SELECT ONE
It is probable, were a dog allowed
to interrogate his prospective master,
that Ills questions would besomctblng
like this: "What do you want me for?"
"Where have 1 got to live?" "Who
is to look after me?' For these are
the main things to bear In nibid when
choosing a dog. Possibly doggie himself would add two more: "Do you
know how to feed me?' "Do you know
how lo doctor me?" both very natural
but not perlnent to this subject.
Governing your choice must be the
questions of place and purpose, and
much misery for the dog and dissatisfaction for the master will be saved
if the general characteristics of the
various breeds, as outlined, In this
series of articles, are carefully stud-
led. The spectacle, for instance, of a
dog destined by all physical and
natural reasons to live a countryside
life, condemned to pace a town flat,
Is galling to all who know dogs.
Therefore, once again, place and purpose must be given choice.
Broadly, the breeds of dogs which
will lie treated In these columns, can
lie divided into three classes'.
Sporting dogs, pure and simple.
House dogs, terriers, etc., the little
"pal" class.
Toy dogs—dont ask them to walk
too much.
When selecting your dog you will,
of course, want one conforming to
your preconceived idea of use. But
It is a difficult Job to tell the right
age of a dog after he haa passed the
puppy stage—say after eight months.
You will have no difficulty in identifying a puppy as such. The puppy
lias only 28 teeth in his set, which
later give place to the adult set of
42. Still, if you can't fix exactly a
dogs age, you can tell if he Is too old
or too bad. Always look the dog. gift
or otherwise. In the mouth. Should
he look as though he wanted a dentist
badly, that is, If his teeth are other
than white and clean, he is not thej
dog for you—he is old or he is ill,!
possibly both.
One of the largest, the group Includes Cocker, Field, Clumber, English Springers and Water Spaniels,
there being both an English and Irish
variety of the latter. The Spaniel,
to bo a successful sporting dog, must
be taken in hand at the puppy stage
to accustom him to the report of a
gun and lo retrieve. His Job is to
find the game quickly and to drop to

hand or shot. Of course, absolute
obedience must be demanded from
him, and patient and kindly teaching
will soon bring out his virtue.
Colorings vary from tbe golden hair
of the Sussex to the lemon and white
of the Clumber, to the black, red or
roan of the Cocker. Weights, too,
vary, the Cocker being reckoned per-

These are thc chief characteristics
of the breed: Coat silky and full,
with chest and tail well feathered. A

set and long ears. A strong, long

FAIRBANKS IN "THE THREE

(Continued from Page One).
WAKE UP
the star, "must be logical; It must
hove comedy and pathos, but above all
it must be human. Any story that
Is human will succeed regardless ot
whether the players wear wigs and
shor pants or are garbed in pajamas.
Drama waB the same in thc Seventeenth Century as It Is today. This
may be the gasoline age of civilization,
but lt hasn't altered human emotions
appreciably. People still laugh and
cry and give vent to anger. And they
are still inordinately curious. In fact,
we progress because we are curious.
People of today wonder if in the olden
days kings and queens and dukes and
lords were swayed by the same passions and emotions that now rule humanity. To satisfy in a measure this
curiosity we have made a celluloid
reproduction of "The Three Musketeers," nnd we have crammed into it
everything that is dramatic, instructive, human, amusing and entertaining. We have tried to twang every
emotion In tbe human system, just as
D'Artagnan did in his memoirs and
as Dumas did In his great novel."
The best talent procurable has been
called. upon to help transcribe this
great story to the aluminum sheet.
Edward Knoblock, one of the greatest
of contemporary playwrights, is responsible for adaptation, research and
costumes, while to Fred Niblo goes the
honor of directing the piece. Niblo,
a born adventurer, has won distinction
as a master ln guiding thc destinies of
this type of play; be Is said to have
no peer. Arthur Edeson, rated as a
genuine lens artist, is credited with
the photography and is said to have
achieved some effects which hitherto
have been considered Impossible.
In the face of the business readjustment that the country has been
facing, Fairbanks has spent more
money on this production than on
any picture he ever before undertook,
all because he has confidence In the
vehicle and In the amusement-seeking
public. "The Threo Musketeers" is
Bald to be the greatest picture of Its
kind ever made.
"The Three MUBketeers" will be
screened Monday and Tuesday at the
Ilo-Ilo Theatre.
It is absolutely necessary In every
community, in order to crow, that a
community have leaders and follow
those leaders. The greatest commun
Ity-butlders are tbe newspapers, therefore they are the leaders and stand
the brunt of the fight to make their
city a larger, busier, brighter and
better city. As a newspaper prospers,
so will the community prosper. The
way to support a newspaper is
through the advertising columns.
The way for a man ln business to
make his business become better Is
through advertising. The newspaper
mau realizes this, but unfortunately
some business men are so blind that
they cannot realise that In order to
Bucceed themselves tbey must use
modern business methods In building
their business—which means advertising.
Every young man and woman needs
a business education. The best place
to get It Is at the Sprott-Shaw Business College, Nanaimo. Write for
prospectus.
Ho that would live at ease should
always put the best construction on
business nnd conversation.

WOODSTOCK) OnL-The January
issue of Rod and Oun ln Canada, the
opening number tor 1923, sets a high
standard for the subsequent Issues to
equal. This number is now on sale,
and it should please every sportsman.
An assortment of splendid features
greets the reader. Bonnycastle Dale
excels himself in his splendid contribution, "A Christmas Day's Duck
Hunting," while "A Trip up the Taku
River" ls another article that is almost
sure to please. Harry M. Moore, the
gifted Canadian writer, has never
written a better stony than "Bones,"
which is another big attraction ln this
Issue. The various departments, tbe
diversity of features, the fine illustrations—all these help to make up a
magazine of quality and excellence.
Rod and Oun ln Canada Is published
monthly at Woodstock, Ontario, by W.

In loving memory of John R. Denholme, dearly beloved husband of Mary
P. Denholme, who died at Royston,

We watched him fading like a flower,
But could not make him stay;
We nursed him with the fondest care,
Till God called him away.
In yonder grove he calmly Ilea,
He whom we loved so well;
Who may be next to him,
It's best no one can tell.

McCLARY'S
Electric Ranges
Women's burdens for centuries past were heavy
because the human race did not know how to lighten
them. An enlightened age has gradually brought now
labor-saving devices to assist her—the greatest of
which is the Electic Range.
McCLARY'S ELECTRIC RANGE
has exclusive features that further reduce women'.*
burdens, saving time, labor and anxiety.
There is the Protected Element—the Element il
the burner, where the heat comes from. Like other
Electric Appliances, the heat is radiated from wire
coils, but the Protected Element snugly encloses these
coils in porcelain to save them from carelessness or accidental upsets. Therefore, McCLARY'S Protected
Element lasts longer, as acids, moisture and grease
cannot harm it. It heats quickly and holds the heat
long after the power is turned off.
The wonderful seamless, round-cornered Oven—
not a nick or crevice in its smooth, even, impenetrable,
glassy enamelled interior. lAs sanitary as any enameled
Interior. As sanitary as any enameled utensil, rust resisting, cleanly. Racks and rack holders removable.
Elements swing on hinges, so that entire surface of
oven is clear for cleaning.
The Oven has a 1% in. insulation around the side
and a l'/a in. magnesia block insulation in the door—
this holds the heat in oven. Roasts and baked foods
retain their full flavor. The result is better baked
foods with minimum shrinkage.
Warming Oven with small element inside.
Signal lights to show whether current for Oven
is on or off.
Switches for elements plainly marked.
Extra plug for other Electric Appliances.
Mercury or Compensating Thermometer.
Fuses easily accessible.

GOOD ACCOMMODATION
EXCELLENT CUISINE
A great man wrote this confession
in oue of his book:  "I never talked
much nt any one time In my life, without saying something or other I wan
sorry tor."    Tho talkative often  do
more barm, all unintentionally, than
| the wilfully false aud malicious.    It
1 is almost impossible for talkative peo-
I pie to avoid gossip, which was amu-
1 singly described by tlle child who said,
! "It's when nobody don't' do nothing,
and  somebody  goes   and   tells   it."
Nothing Ib so easy to start as tT falsi1
report.   Just because a woman while
buying a broom wanted oue with n
heavy and strong handle, it waa reported by ail tbe neighbors that' she
wus In the habit of beating her hus-
buuil!   We have all been sadly amused
by "The Autobiography of a Scandal,"
and reminded how true Ib the Baying,
"Ot   thy   unspoken   word   thou   art
muster!  thy spoken word Is muster
lot thee," and thnt we should be as
careful of our words ns of our actions;
und UK fur from speaking as from doing evil.   We bave no more right to
! say un unkind word to a mnn than we
| hnve to knock him down.   We have
no more right to say to another an
impure   word—that   is   to   say,   to
poison hlm through his ear—than wc
hnve to poison him through his mouth.
Anecdotes Illustrating  ttie  Beauty of
Silence.
"Why, Doctor," exclaimed a shallow,
talkative ludy, wbo was in the room
with Dr. Johnson, but of whom he
took little notice, "I believe you prefer tlie company of men to that of
ladies." "Madam," he replied, "I
am fond of the company of ladles; I
like their beauty, I like their delicacy, and I like their silence."
"How will you have your hair cut,
sir?" nsked a barber. "In silence,"
was tlie reply.
Tbe Silence of Great Men.
Tennyson, ut one time, often paid a
visit to Carlyle, at Chelsea. On one
of these occasions these two great
men, having gono to Carlyle's library
to have n quiet chat together, seined
themselves on each side of the fireplace, und lit their pipes. And there
for two hours they sat, plunged in profound meditation, the silence being
unbroken save for'the little, dry, regular sound that the lips of the
smokers made, as they sent puffs of
smoke soaring to tho ceiling. Not one
single word broke the silence. After
two bonis of this strange converse between these two great souls that understood each other without speech,
Tennyson roso to lake leave ot his
host. Curylyo went with him to the
door; and then, grasping bis hand,
uttered these words—"Eh, Alfred, we
have bad a grand night! Come again
soon."
A young man was sent' to Socrates to
learn oratory. On being introduced to
the orator, he talked so incessantly
that Socrates asked for double fees.
"Why charge me double?" asked the
young man. "Because," said Socrates,
"I uiUBt teach you two sciences—the
one liow to speak, and the other how
to hold your tongue."
Hannah More nnd Tulc-Uearing.
Hannah More had' a good way of
managing tale-bearers. It Is said that
whonever she was told anything de-
rogolory of another, her Invariable
reply wus, "Come, we will go and ask
If this is true." The effect waB sometimes ludicrously painful. The talebearer was taken aback, stammered
out a qualification, or begged tbat' no
notice might be taken of the statement. But the good lady was Inexorable; off she took the scandalmonger to the scandalized, to make
inquiry nnd compare accounts. It Ih
not very likely that anybody ever n
second time ventured to repent a gossipy story to Hannah More.
Milton being asked If he intended
to icadi his daughters languages, replied, "No. one tongue Is enough for
a woman."

CLOSING   EXERCISES   FOR   THE
ENTRANCE CLASSES
A very enjoyable evening was spent
by the Barents ot the Entrance Class
pupils on Friday evening last. Owing
to lack of suitable accommodation at
tbe school the closing exercises were
held tn the Anglican ChUrch Hall, at
7:30 p.m.
The pupils, under Principal A. H.
Webb, and Vice-Principal G. E. Apps,
put on some excellent songs, carols
and drills.
A laughable dialogue entitled "Taking the Census" was creditably rendered by Alma Conrod and her family,
assisted by Census-taken Albert
Gomm.
The outstanding event of the evening was a presentation to Mr. Apps,
who gets married on January 3rd.
Mr. Webb introduced the subject and
Miss J. E, Robertson, with a very ap-
proplate little speech, made the actual
presentation,
Mr. Webb addressed those present
with regard to the standard of the
pupils, the methods of teaching and
the objects he and the teachers had
In view.
The remainder of the evening was
spent in games and dancing. At the
close hearty cheers were given for the
teaching staff.
Messrs. Webb and Apps provided the
ball and the pupils provided dainty
refreshments. This Is the flrst meeting of the kind and the pupils are on
the lookout for another.

News of Courtenay District
Thursday night was children's night
in Courtenay, the scholars of the public school entertaining their parents
and treinds at a splendidly arranged
and carried out entertainment at the
Gaiety Tbeatie. The meritorious programme presented certainly showed
that the teachers and pupils had put
their hearts Into the work ot preparing for the Christmas events. There
were choruses, recitations, playlets
and vaudeville turns of surprising
cleverness. Charlie Chaplin was present in the person of Master Jack
Maclntyre, and his mimicry was supreme. Master Frank Hurford recited
"Blnkie and Me." The playlet "The
Old Man Next Door," was cleverly performed, the acting of all the principals
being all that could be desired. Miss
Beatrice Catelpole and Master Harold
Tull were particularly good, the
cleverness of their acting bringing
forth rounds of applause. "The Toy
Maker" was cleverly put on and there
must have been long and patient service on the part of the teachers to
make the arrangements so complete.
The toy soldiers were possibly the
most enjoyable part of this performance, the nine boys taking part certainly carrying themselves like the
objects they were representing. Master Morson, as major of the regiment,
created much merriment by his ability
to entertain.
A chorus of eight girls, Dorothy
Hames, Kathleen and Eileen Moore,
Ann Alice Moncrlelf, Burnadlne Shannon, Muriel Leighton, Catherine
Beattie, Gladys Perez, Thelma Walker
and Kitty Williams, was greatly enjoyed. Sidney Williams as the Toy-
maker was extremely good. Four
Teddy Bears, Masters John Surgenor,
Harold Herd, Jack, Hames and Wilfred
Anderton, also put on a pleasing stunt.
The entertainment was as enjoyable
as only children's concerts can be,
and was attended by a full house. The
teachers certainly deserve a great deal
of credit for the performance as a
whole, and are receiving congratulations on every hand.

BANFF, Alta.—A survey of suitable
aerodrome and landing sites In connection   with   a   proposed   aeroplane,
patrol in Banff and Kootenay National!
Parks has been completed by the Act-
Ing Director of the Air Force and the j
Inspector of Canadian National Parks, j
An aerodrome site near Canmore   in i
Banff National Purk and eight other
essential landing places were selected !
In the two parks, as well as a number
of emergency and non-essential landing grounds.
With the opening, of the Banff-Windermere motor highway across the
Rockies, and the resulting Increase in
traffic through the parks the lire
hazard will be considerably enhanced
and it is believed that the establishment of an aeroplane patrol service
will be of great importance in this
connecUon. Owing to the mountainous nature ot* the country the regular
warden service is handicapped In its
patrol work and tlle feasibility of aeroplanes hi augmenting the service has
been under consideration by tlle Department of the Interior for some
time.
