The North Vancouver Board of
Trade came into being on July
J51I1 lasl, and since that time has
accomplished many things, It
was thought at thai time "advisable tn organize an association to
advanci and bring to public attention the many industries and
numerous advantagi -. scenic and
otherwise, ol Nm tli Vancouver."
This dei ision has been amply
justified in more ways than one,
as witness its untiring 1 (forts regarding the si curing ol .1 better

conveniences such as water'
works, tramways, electric lighting,
power, etc., as well as most excellent streets and mails. These
speak volumes for the Ambitious
Cilv. On all sides there were
permanent and solid structures
going up. As to the scenic attractions, there was no plaee the
town would take a second plaee

tourists over here to see ihem.

Dora Lamb
WAS twenty years ago this Christmas, 1 was then confidential secretary lo Colonel I)
II.' was perhaps forty-five or fifty, cold and i|iiiot, ihoiijjli always courieous ami just
There was something aliout him 1 feared, pitied, dreaded, loved,
Wo had just loft a small lown in Ontario. It was storming and wo iverc nearly
an hour late. Everybody seemed a littlo put out, The Colonol himself was unusiialiv
anxious, as ho wanted to hook aam- car onto the Imperial Limited ai North Hav.
Wv were headed for Vancouver where the Colonel had a deal on that involved
several millions, lie always spoke 10 me of his business transactions, bm aai himself,
hi- likes ur ilislikes, jaays air sorrows, he never spoke, ami vu never knew,
Wc hail left ihe Ontario town but half an hour when ilie bralceman passed '1 rough
I., hang out his tail-lights,   As he went forward again ho spoke lo tlio porter, who immediately went out .ni ihe rear platform and returned in a moment with a peculiar
looking parcel, which he handed m me.
" Wh.ii' .lul you get it, Gcorgo?" 1 asked,
" The lai'iika'inaiii just told me there was somothing mn mi tho platform, sn 1 broughl ii in "
Ai ihai moment the Colonel camo oul "I his room,   1 handod liim the parcel, and told him whal
I ki on of it.
Plots, wrecks. l:aiMu|as, dynamite and many other calamities ran through my mind. The Colonel,
however, calme I me considerably by showing no Bigns ol fear, or even interest lie look thc parcei
and deliberately untied Iho shoelace. As he -lipiaeal the string ofl wo saw faint pencil marks, .onl in
half print, half script, was lhe name," Dora Lamb, Vancouver."
I'he Colonel hesitated now, though after a moment began i" unwrap ihe parcel,   1 was wailing
breathlessly when George, who was peeping ..ver the Colonels -limililer, exclaimed," Naineo' .le - i
l.aiu-al, Sell!'' anil the Colonel hell up the funniest looking something in the shape of a 'kail, wiih a
piece "i foolscap folded many limes and lied t" ns nock. In the same writing again was written the
name, " lima Lamb " A new, strange look came int.. the Colonel's face, ihat of mingled surprise,
pleasure ami interest,
" This musl bo a Christmas gift for ymi. George," lie said,   " Shall we open il I"
"I think you li.nl bolter finish the job, Sell,   said Georgo,
The Colonel look the letter from the doll's neck, ..pencil it and handed ii t" mc. then turned and
gazed mil at the -imm     I saw lhc Idler was written by a little child, ami as s 1 a- 1 ...iil-l wade
through ii, I began;
" Hear Dura: 1 am going i" send ymi this doll I'm- ymir Christmas, Ils iln-ss is made mil nf
Mamma's old silk shawl, I have tried two times tn put llie doll mi the train, but tlie men drive me
fruin lhe ears, sn I thought I would write ihis letter ami pin it to the doll ami try again, ami if vmi
ever iliil got thc doll ymi would know that I scut it.    1 am su lonesome, -Edith.
1 looked at the Colonel as I finished, He was still staring mn of the window, George dropped
liis mouth together ami slipped down the aisle towards ihe kitchen.
The Colonel turned when he was gone, look his handkerchief from his pocket, wiped twu I.i;.
tears from his eyes, ami in my surprise made un elTi.rl lu hide liis feelings.
" ljia.1 nut thought before, thai little ones bail heartaches, too," lie said, reaching fur the letter.
After dinner lhe Colonel instructed me tn wire Dubbs, uf the Pinkorton Detective Agency at
Vancouver, i" meet us Tuesday morning.    I went .mt with the telegram, the Colonel went to his
room, ami I iliil nut sec him again until breakfast, as we were 1111111111; intu Winnipeg, iwo hmirs late.

No season, no lestival compares
with, nor has made a deeper impression upon our minds and heart,
than Christinas with all iis joys.
Throughout the yeai we may lor
get the nhl home and even
lorget the days ol nur youth. Yet,
when Christmas comes it brings
back nld recollections and associations, which will never lade limn
oui memories. As i,on is drawn
towards llie magnet, so does the
nhl home and the old Iriends lar
awaj draw us at this season ol
Christinastide, Happy are Ihej
who can turn homeward on that
day, and affectionately embrace
luml mother and lather, sist, r or
brothel and loving Iriends, Blessed are those whose hearts beat
warm on Christinas, and who love
to see all round them happj and
merry, Blessed are they who nol
null love to see smiling fliers and
joyous hearts, but who also know
Imu to make their neighbors con
tented and cheerful, The best and
greatest nl nil the gills given to
mankind is the heart full of love,
This is wealth which none ran
give   or   lake   from    us.   How
 asuieless  is  the  influence  ol
sm Im heart,   li makes everything
around happy,  us il the angels

prolific terraces, oi benches, which
abound throughout British Co

virgin state. To average citizens
that dwell heir on ilm Coast, the
interioi ol ibis province is as little
known as lhe Antarctic regions,

offices or corridors ol hotels, to

and  explain   their  scheni s,   or
proffer advice in respect to lhe
possibilities ol the interior.
The pioneers remember the
strenuous times when the building
nl tin Canadian Pacific Railway
went through, But the road was
built, nevertheless. However, the
southern portion ol this province
dors not include lhe whole arm ol
undeveloped British Columbia.
Not by any means, There is the
