an improvised morgue, into which one
of the mine buildings had been converted.
In the dawn of day there began a
heart rending march up and down along
the aisles which these bodies have been
laid, by surviving wives and mothers
and sweethearts, orphaned children and
strong men, each seeking a near relative or beloved friend. There are between five and six thousand inhabitants

the chief actors in the pathetic and
heart rending scenes, lt is thought by
tonight the full extent of the horror
will be known and it is feared the
knowledge of this will precipitate even
more pitiful scenes thau those of today
Uy those who witnessed it the explosion was likened to the discharge of a
cannon. ICvery movable object shot
with terifflc force through the mine. At

Hjornson has long been recoguized as
the national poet of Norway. His name
is a synonym of the hopes and aspirations of the Norwegian people in their
political and intellectual struggles. No
man ever loved .Norway more than he;
no man ever did more than he for her
progress and prosperity. To promote
her welfare he has unwoariedly applied
all the powers of his great genius.
Hjornson was born in li^I- in the district of Osterdalen. wher his father was
a clergyman. Six vears later his family
moved to Romsdalen. a district famous
for its magniiicent scenery. At the age
or eleven the lad was sent to school.

Sir Wilfrid Laurier's birthday and the
opening  of  parliament   have   given   an
opportunity   to   tin*   governmenl
to tell of the gn-at achievements of the
Liberal   government.     For   ii.iui:
they were able to point to gi neral
parity, to Increasing wealth and to th.
apparent promise of steady grown

"getting ready to begin."
There remains the commercial treaty
lately concluded with France. That is
Sir Wilfrid's one finished product.
Ther.-   has   already   been one   regrettable incident In connection with it. Sir
Wilfrid   in   the-   first   glow  of  rejoicing
over the reception accorded him on his
return from London and Paris. Informed  several  audiences  that  Canada  had

Nelson, B. C, 16th November, 1807.
Signg That Shall  Portend the Laat Advent���Services Tomorrow  in
Nelson   Churches.
Tomorrow will be the second Sunday
in Advent. It is also the festival of the
Conception of the messed Virgin Mary.
The gospel for the day is from St.
Luke, the abstruse passage beginning:
"And there shall he signs in the sun
and in the moon and In the stars; and
Upon the earth distress of nationB," and
ending with the baffling statements:
"This generation shall not pass away
till all be fuliillftd: Heaven and earth
shall pan away: but my word shall not
pass away." The generation to whom
those wordB were addressed saw His
Death. Resurrection and Ascension. To
the faithful few as revealed the Descent of the Holy Ghost. But Is all
fulfilled? His church, taught by her
interpretation of His own words, and
later by the Revelation of St. John, has
never ceased to look for a second coming "with power and great glory." Many
times in the nineteen centuries that
have passed Christians have thought
they recognized the portents, "signs
In the sun and in the moon and ln the
stars; and upon the earth distress of
nations," and  looked  for the end.
The collect, "Blessed Lord, who has
caused all holy scriptures to be written
for our learning," and the epistle, "whatsoever things were written aforetime
were written for our learning." alike
point to the duty and privilege of
patient study and research. Tennysun
wrote that "truth embodied in a tale
may enter in at lowly doors," but even
the apparently simplest records of the
evangelists contain cryptic passages
that may give pause to the boldest and
most confident dogmatist, and bid him
limit the number of his positive assertions. It is not for nothing that the
authors of the liturgy have added to a
collect and epistle teaching the duty of
patient and humble study a gospel
whose message is  so ohscure.

;>f illustration Mr. Fraser showed many
scenes in Canada from Canso to Vancouver, accompanying the first part
with a brief discourse, ilustrated. on
the fishing industry as pursued at Can-
so, and the Dominion government's mar
ine zoological station at that point. The
projectoscope supplies a need that has
been felt In the school from the beginning. It affords the only practical
means of detailed study of anatomy,
and, for part of the year, botany, and
will also be a very valuable aid in the
'������aching  of  descriptive   geography.
