And ahull  from age  to nxr fnilurr."
WITH this issue the SATURDAY
CHINOOK packs its trunks preparatory to moving into new lodgings.
Christmas in the heart of Vancouver.
Henceforth the paper will be issued from the
building at 426 Homer Street, formerly occupied
by the Vancouver WORLD.
The publishers of the SATURDAY CHINOOK have taken over the entire building at the
address mentioned. This week repairs are being
made and the plant piece by piece is being installed.
It is planned that the next issue of the paper will be
produced at the Homer Street offices.
It was the late J. C. MacLagen who erected the
building on Homer Street, between Hastings and
Pender, which will be occupied by the SATURDAY CHINOOK. He founded the Vancouver
WORLD and for a deca |e pd lished it from lhe
Homer Street premises. MacLagen was one of the
great men associated wilh the history of Vancouver.
He made the Vancouver WORLD the besl newspaper property in Western Canada.
The character of the late J. C. MacLagen is
indicated in the manner in which lhe building on
Homer Street was constructed. The foundations
of that building are laid well and deeply, and the
walls are built upon massive lines.
MacLagen did not build for his time, but for
generations after him.
He laid the foundations of his building as he did
the foundations of his newspaper���both stand today.
And though the newspaper has changed hands repeatedly since MacLagen's pen was stilled, and the
building, too, has gone out of the possession of the
MacLagen family, the winds and storms injure
neither, for "they are founded upon a rock."
The publishers of the SATURDAY CHINOOK have been fortunate in securing the Mac-
OME days ago the Vancouver SUN carried
an editorial attack upon Mr. Bowser within
which was buried a most unkind cut al the
memory of William R. Arnold, who was managing
director of the Dominion Trust Company.
But a few years ago, the SUN pointed out, Mr.
Arnold could not go "to Bellingham or Chilliwack"
j without being interviewed upon his return by all the
newspapers.     In  these  bombastic  interviews,   the
SUN  reminds the people,  Mr.   Arnold   boosted
: British Columbia and Vancouver to the skies.
In those days the SUN carried Arnold interviews.
The SUN was in with the rest of the papers.
The SUN carried Dominion Trust material with
the other papers* in Vancouver, and assisted in
the shrouding of the terrible truths relating to Dominion Trust.
When Arnold died, the SUN was the first publication to print an interview assuring the public that
everything was alright; that a new managing director was being appointed and that things would go on
as usual at Dominion Trust.
Why is it necessary at this time to take from out
the grave the bones of Mr. Arnold and exhibit them
to the people?
Mr. Arnold died and as time goes on indications
are forthcoming that Arnold died to save others.
Had Arnold lived and demanded that the rest
of the gang be brought forth and punished, we
would have had a nice how-do-you-do.
The Manitoba smash-up would be a joke along
side the trouble that Arnold might have started.
Let us forget Arnold and let us be charitable to
his memory.
Arnold was but the victim of his surroundings.
All who went with Arnold were prepared to win
with liim; but when it came to losing, Arnold had |o
give the most.
Let the gunning be carried on for the living who
are guilty. How about the Government officials
who co-operated with Arnold in the Dominion Trust
manipulation? What of the confidential Dominion
Trust agents who were in on the inner circle? How
about the firm of chartered accountants who certified financial reports which were bogus?
Why should an investigation not be allowed concerning the affairs of the Vancouver Harbor and

OL. J. D. TAYLOR, of New Westminster,
told the Conservative Association the other
night that the Fraser Valley, if tilled, would
make Vancouver a San Francisco.
Col. Taylor ought to know. He has grown old
in the Fraser Valley. He knows every inch of it
from Ladners beyond Chilliwack.
Sir Richard McBride, who was born in the Fraser Valley, says that land settlement in British Columbia is not economically a possibility.
The Chinese gardeners meet at a certain point
down on Main Street every Wednesday morning
and hold a sort of a market.
We passed the place at about eight o'clock the
other morning, after the Chinese had gone on their
way. We met a certain white man at the place
where the Orientals had held their market earlier in
the day. He was stooping down picking up bits of
celery and cabbage leaves and other refuse and was
taking a great armful home with him.
We asked the man what he was going to do with
the refuse.    Use it for food, he said.    Here was an
able-bodied  fellow, married,  out of work,  out of
money, out of food.    He was picking up the leav-
1 ings of the Chinamen.
i There is land enough in the Fraser Valley, Col.
Taylor says, to produce enough food to feed the people of San Francisco. \et white men in Vancouver

It would not be so if the members of our government had any initiative, any love for the people of
British Columbia today, or respect for posterity.
The land in British Columbia is regarded by-
Government officials as a thing upon which to build
railroads or to place taxes. Indeed our government's
idea of the value of our land areas is little better than
that of the Siwash.
���MacLagen saw to that���and there are solid, substantial foundations upon which printing machinery
may be operated.
No more desirable premises for any paper could
be found in Vancouver.
In making the change of premises, the SATURDAY CHINOOK does not change in policy or in
ownership. It is our hope to spread out so that we
may be of some service to all districts throughout
British Columbia. For more than four years we
have been piospered in the Municipality of South
Vancouver.   In that district we have made an honest

We wish to express to our subscribers and clients
'of the printing department deep thanks for their appreciation of our work attempted and work completed. To all the people of South Vancouver we
are under great obligation for hearty and loyal support during the past years.
It is our hope that old friends will continue to
take a personal interest in the progress of thc paper
and we will welcome them at all hours of the day
and night at 426 Homer Street.
Our editorials shall be written hereafter in the
very room from which MacLagen sent out his daily
I messages of enlightenment and encouragement to
the people of British Columbia.
May it be granted that the tone of the SATURDAY CHINOOK and the character of the work
from our printing office shall be ennobled by the
influence of the new surroundings.

the Federal Government get in behind this, the most
gigantic of wild-cats? Let it be remembered that
while Col. J. D. Taylor, M.P., of New Westminster, was fighting tooth and nail at Ottawa for the
legitimate development of the Fraser River, Mr.
Stevens, of Vancouver, whose offices at that time
were in the Dominion Trust Building, between
Arnold's and the Vancouver Harbor and Dock Extension Company, was doing his mightiest to help
put over the wild-cat scheme.
The strange part of the whole proceeding is that
over a year has passed since the greatest financial
wreck in the history of Canada was announced to
LSEWHERE in this issue we reprint an article descriptive of the settlement about the
town of Greeley, in Colorado, U.S.A.
Horace Greeley was a man with a great imagination. From his editorial desk in New York City,
he undertook a farm land settlement policy on his
own account and caused a great part of a western
desert to bloom.
Greeley was not a farmer; he was an editor. Editors are not supposed to know much, of farming.
But some editors have common sense and all of us
know that if we are going to live, we must eat. We
must have food. In British Columbia we do not
grow our own food.   We import it from overseas.
Horace Greeley, in planting the town which bears
his name and settling the country round about that
town, did more in the way of putting people on the
land than the government of British Columbia and
all the public bodies of the Province of British Columbia have done within this province.
Every person interested in the sane development
of British Columbia should read the article about
the Greeley colonization project which was so successfully carried through so many years ago.

Columbia. Single-handed he has carried on the
fight against the Provincial Spoilers through boom
and depression. When his voice was first raised in
lhe legislative chamber, some people sneered at him.
Today the people of British Columbia respect the
humble Welshman from the coal fields of Vancouver Island more highly than any of the titled puppets
of the capital.
IN HIS SPEECH the other evening, Mr. Williams referred to the statement of Wilfrid Gribble,

the name of King George.
"IF KING GEORGE was personally responsible
for the knighting of Sir William Mackenzie, I would

A NOSE WITH a sharp edge indicates an aptitude to anger; a thick and depressed nose denotes vicious inclinations; a full, solid and obtuse nose, like
that of lions and Molossian dogs, is a sign of courage and audacity; a hooked and aquiline nose reveals a royal and magnificent mind; but a crooked
soul is berayed by a nose that is bent on one side.

The allegations made in a conn action for the possession
oi certain documents bearing upon (he sub-contract for
harbor works call for a searching, impartial inquiry, li
is charged that although the government plan specified
the excavation of Irss than five thousand cubic yards of
lock this was over classified in order that thc sub-contractor might be paid for 20,000 cubic yards, which would
involve a fraudulent payment of $15(1,,.. .1. It is charged
that .1. L. Nelson, until a few days ago government superintendent of dredging, received money on the contract, also
lhat sub-contractor Macdonald was paid on the basis of bis
financial obligations and not according to the amount of
work done.
The allegations are supported by documentary evidence
which, unless satisfactorily explained by thc parties involved, will convince the public that a graft conspiracy
of gigantic proportions has been in operation in connection with the harbor improvement. It includes a memorandum purporting to have been given by the contractor to
his book-keeper���the author of tbe charges���instructing
him to prepare estimates, in the following words:
"Get out amount of payrolls for July. Get estimate for
July made up that will show at least 33 1-3 per cent, pro-
fits for the month, including insurance, rental, repairs,
payrolls, automobile, note, etc., and three thousand gross,
and note approximately there is three thousand five hundred dollars to be paid on notes; money borrowed on
Vancouver contract with Henry McPhee is to be attended to." Another memorandum said: "Get out estimate
for July. Maclacblau wants it In at once. Allow one foot
all over work for earth."
These memoranda will require a lot 'of explanation.
There is a letter alleged to have been written by the contractor to Nelson on July 2H. which said:
"Il will be necessary lor yon to be in Victoria on Saturday next lo interview Mr. Maclaclilan regarding tbis
month's estimate, as I understand from his conversation
that he intends culling down on ibis month's estimate
lo make up for what lie claims was ovcrmeasurement last
mouth. My balance for month of July will lie iu shape
so that you can see how we stand at the end of the month.
Mr. Maclaclilan requested dial you should be here on Saturday."
The authorship 1 f this is denied by th" contractor, but
il was written on his firm paper and bears his signature.
Admittedly tlie relations between tbe sub-contractor
and late Superintendent Nelson were very personal and
intimate. In his evidence at ihe coal inquiry Nelson mentioned lhat he had "financed" a contractor, although he
also said thai when he came lo the province in 1913 be bad
no hank balance. Among lhe documents involved in thc
present case is a receipt given by Nelson to Macdonald
the sub-contractor, lor $2,C00, The sub-contractor declares that tbis was merely a loan. Whether il was a loan
or otherwise it hardly accords with the statement that
Nelson "financed" lhe contractor. It would appear, rather,
lhal teh contracl or was financing Nelson. An imsiicccss-
lul effort by ihe contractor to obtain an injunction preventing lhe publication of these documents, was not without significance in association witli what is known of their
After Mallory, the former employee of Macdonald, and
lhe man who makes lhe charges, handed these anil other
documents to Mr. Barnard, an engineer of ihc public works
department came from Ottawa and conducted an investigation. If his report does not recommend a searching
investigation of the whole affair it can only be because
he has been instructed to cover it up. Nor does the resignation of Mr. Nelson as superintendent of dredging close
the incident; it scarcely is-said to have been opened. The
public will be satisfied with nothing less than an inquiry
which will disclose fully the relations between Nelson, a
government official, and a sub-contractor on a government
work whom be claims he "financed": the nature and extent
of over-classiiication. if there bas been any, and the circumstances under which it was made, a matter which can
be determined by practical tests. Mr. Rogers may be satisfied that the ostensible retirement of Mr. Nelson from
the government service expiates everything, but the public
will demand tbe probing of the charges to the last detail.���
Victoria Daily Times.
Sir Charles Davidson, who has done more to uncover
graft in Canada than any other half dozen men, has given
the grafters warning. "I think you may rest assured." he
lold a Montreal audience the other day. "thai few will try
to steal from thc public treasury in future, and every man
who would deserves to be dealt with mercilessly, and, so
far as my office allows, he shall be."
If only Sir Charles could give us a similar assurance
in respect of the conditions on which some government
contracts are let. conditions that oblige tbe contractor to
buy his raw material or other requirements only from
political friends of the powers that bc. Or if he would
undertake to investigate the manner in which commissions are secured in the Canadian army. With these twin
branches of investigation he would have bis bauds full, at
least until the war ended. And as compared with what
Sir Charles has already brought to light, bis labors, we
have reason lo think, would show us that the half has not
been told.��� Natal Reporter.
The disheartening aspect of tbe current agitation for
military preparedness is that it is animated not by a clear
conviction of the international obligations and opportunities of tbe country, but by a kind of blind suspicion and
panic. Tbe proclaimed object of thc armament is to defend our national isolation, not to realize a positive policy
which will enable us to promote both our own security
and the peace of tbe world. There can be no permaneni
security unless the pacific nations are welded into an organization sufficiently tough, alert, clear-headed and well-
equipped to make their joint power count decisively in the
balance against an aggressive disturber of tbe peace. An
increasing understanding between Great llritain and the
United States would constitute a necessary condition ol"
any League of Peace, and if it could develop into an alliance it might become by virtue ol* unassailable maritime
supremacy the substance and chief support of such a
league.���Tbe New Republic.

Written, for Sensitive Southern
To attempt a revision ,,t" the whole
acting play of "Uncle Tom" would bc
t i undertake too lengthy a task. Besides, il would be quite unnecessary.
A sample of setting and dialogue will
serve to show tbe head "f any stock
company bow and in what spirit the
revision should he made when the
-.day is to be given south of Mason
and Dixon's line. As that sample, let
ns revise a little scene between Uncle
Tom and Simon Legrce. It is guaranteed not to offend tbe most sensitive
Southern audience.

lhe more highly civilized communities. The women are commonly broad
shouldered, muscular, bard fisted and
capable of great exertions. Moreover, they retain their vigor to a very
advanced age, so that it is not surprising that- a woman of sixty should
be fighting. It was the vigorous old
age enjoyed by the people ol Servia
and Bulgaria that led Professor Met-
cbnikoff to develop his peculiar theories of combating premature old age
among civilized peoples.

She has written this thrilling description of one of her scouting exploits during the present war:

Cosmo Bruce Is Likely Candidate for Reeve
MR. CoS.Mo BRUCE, presidenl of the South Vancouver Hoard ni" Trade, is the managing director of the
Coast Lumber and Fuel Company, one of the largest
concerns of its kind upon the Peninsula, and the largest
lumber and fuel industry in .South Vancouver.
Mr. Bruce is not a politician, lias never been a politician
and some friends say that lie never will be a politician.
This is ihe best recommendation that he hears.
While knowing little of the mysteries of playing both
ends against the middle, Mr. Rruce can foot up a column
of figures quicker than any man in his office. He can figure
out freight on a cargo of lumber quicker than any of his
hook-keepers. If it comes to giving an estimate for a house,
a store, or a sidewalk, Mr. lirtice can close one eye and give
a more accurate estimate for materials, without putting
pencil to paper, than any man that he employs.
Mr. Bruce knows that "it's the overhead that eats a
man up," and he knows that a dollar spent should bring
back a dollar and a few cents worth of value.
That's the way he runs his business and that's the way
lie would run the business of the Municipal Hall if he were
elected reeve.
In Mr. Bruce we find a gentleman who is singularly
opposed to trying to please all hands. He doesn't believe
in that way of doing business. In the recent brewery controversy he stuck by his guns, pleaded guilty to having had
a hand in bringing the brewery to South Vancouver ���
Whatever our opinions upon the liquor question may
be, the stand of Bruce at that time was more or less of a
manly stand. He had been sent abroad to endeavor to
secure industries for Smith Vancouver. Here was a brewery industry. The law saitl that breweries might operate
in British Columbia, so Bruce saw no reason why South
Vancouver shouldn't have a nice little brewery. I le brought
it back with him and was roundly condemned in many quar
ters for his actions.
Bruce was horn in Ayrshire, al Irvine, a lew miles from
the cottage of Rabbie Burns.   Ile was brought up in Liver
pool, and came lo Vancouver thirteen years ago to do rough
labor in the yards of the Royal City Mills. He learned the
lumber business from the piling lo the sale of lumber to
ye prairie farmers. He became efficient in his line and so
has prospered and has risen.'
We believe lhal Mr. I .nice leans towards the Conservatives in politics. That is a serious matter which should
he closely investigated. Some people believe that "no such
man should be trusted." The SATURDAY CHINOOK,
however, can see even good in Tories.    This is strange,
because lew Tories see much io hi- proud of in certain Liberal papers. Bruce is a Tory, then, and a Presbyterian.
A Scotch Tory, we were led to believe in the Zorras, back
east in lhe County ol ()xford, was the most dangerous tvpe
oi* Tory,
Oi ihe candidates for ihe South Vancouver reeveship,
mi far, ihe SATURDAY CIII.M >QK looks upon Mr. Cos
urn Bruce as lhe mosl likely iii lhe lot. lii Mr. Bruce in
do inn see a perfect man. We know, however, that he i- a
good man in his business, and is a man of integrity in every
day affairs, lie did a mosl undiplomatic act in associating
himself with the plan to give a brewery privilege to operate
within the boundaries of the district.
So far as the SATURDAY CHINOOK is informed..
Mr. Bruce's opponents in the race for the reeveship are
equally as guilty as he in regard to the matter of liquor leg
islation. Two of them were directly responsible for passing the bylaw which enabled the brewery to enter husiness
���deliberately took into their arms a proposition which
had, in the regular order of business, been referred lo the
In conclusion, it might be said that Mr. Bruce has lived
lor a number of years in the municipality and is the head
of a family. He has a reputation for abstemious habits and
for honesty and uprightness.
Mr. Bruce is not a good politician, has never been a
politician, and some friends say he never will be a politician.
This is the best recommendation that he hears.
Less politics and more horse sense in the handling of
the office of reeve of South Vancouver would redound verj
much to the benefit of the people who pay the taxes.

General Sir Sam Hughes returning from London. Out,,

larceny has been going on in different camps in Canada.
Wc are going to put an end lo it hy making a chain of
responsibility in each battalion, so thai no officer or non-
com, can say it was none of his husiness. For example,
the colonel and his majors will have to give personal supervision to all matters in tlie battalion.
It is most unfortunate that even with the proof of graft,
from members of parliament down to clerks in stores,
horse traders, inspectors, contractors, etc., not a soul is
ye l-ehinil the bars; in faet, only one arrest has been made.
Sir Charles Davidson, an investigating judge, says the
grafters "deserve to he dealt with  mercilessly."
Hut it is all WORDS up to the present; no action.
The Government sits tight and shows no sign whatever
of meeting the crying demand for investigation into the
shell contracts, and unfair profits, estimated at over $20,-
Is it any wonder that Sir Sam has discovered a lot of
petty larceny?
Look at the example that has been set? The glaring
thievery has hone unpunished.
In China grafters are shot iu times of peace; in war
they would probably he strung up and quartered. In
France, grafters have been sentenced to penitentiary for
long periods.

Richmond (Vt.l Times-Dispatch.
The American people, in spite of Iheir hard-headed business ability and practicality, are sentimental and emotional
and easily swayed by appeals lo their feelings.
Here is ihis country, removed from danger by ils natural position; on friendly terms with its northern neighbor;
lending a helping hand lo its southern neighbor; amicably
disposed toward South America; having no quarrel with
ANYBODY, being driven, through this same emotionalism,
into a state of fear by a crowd of jingoes who care for
little but their own profits.
Every argument and possibility which can he fashioned
by the human mind, is being brought to bear; sown, broad-
east, through an unscrupulous press. Every appeal of a
maudlin nature is employed to reach thc affection anil:

Lord Rosebery in his recent speech said: "I know of
nothing more disheartening than the announcement recently made that the United States, the one great country left
in the world free from the hideous, bloody burden of war
���is about to embark upon the building of a huge armada
destined to be equal or second to our own," and added that
it could only result in a continued burden upon other nations which would increase exactly in proportion to the
fleet of the United States.
It is a sad and heart-breaking fact that this country,
which has stood lor liberty and freedom, whether it has
ever achieved them or not, is back-sliding: allowing itself
to be poisoned with this capitalist and militarist class
which is using lhe impressionable minds of Ihe people as
a hot-house for forcing to maturity this hybrid, useless,

wild), preparedness. ��� Detroit Times.
II" the war lasts another two or three years, and President Wilson's peace policy continues, practically the whole
of the world's gold must gravitate to the United States.
What a change the phenomenon is going to produce in
civilization's social customs and ideals! The attention of
Europe will be centred on the problems of repletiiig its
vanished gold supply. The saviour of his country, the
true patriot, will he thc citizen who can effect the return
of the largest amount of the precious metal. The fortune
hunter, for example, will become a popular hero. Youth'
who show lhe glimmerings of a genius for fascination will

THE growing belief that the schools must deal with every-day living is the greatest forward movement in modern education. A man may have talent and culture, be a great
scholar, and yet be unable to make a living.
P. G. Holden, director of educational work for the International Harvester Company,
says: "Education is that training which fits for the duties of life���all the duties���development of mind and muscle, training for citizenship, for home-making, for parenthood, for'social
and economic duties.
Education is derived from all our surroundings and experiences, and can not be limited
by any set term of years, nor any place nor system. It is a progression all through life. Education has been defined in many ways according to the age and the country in which the
teacher lived; but when it is all summed up, we find that what people need is the kind of
teaching which will make it possible for them   to do their part in the world's work.
At Omaha, the Chairman of a meeting once asked me, 'Why is it that you are preaching coin throughout Iowa?'
"And I replied, 'To save souls.'
"He said, 'Will you please explain?'
I said:   Brother, don't you know that the corn side of people is bigger than the angel
side?    There are six thousand ministers preaching from the angel's point of view.    It seems
to me that it was time somebody began to speak from the big end, the end that concerns people���from the corn side.'
"There is one great principle: if we arc to help the world and humanity, we must help
through the things that concern all of the people���through the things thai 'they give the
world; their days, their toil, their labor. Don't you knew that the ministers have only one
day in the week to preach, and that is on Sunday? And only one hour on that day, and I
have six days?'
"The human race was made long before books were made. Books are tools, like an
ax to the woodsman. They are great conveniences, but ihey are nol thc end. Is the ax
the end? No, it is the clearing, the crops, lhe home���they are the end. Books the end?
No, they are the means to an end. Education is fitting for the duties of life, and not all
the duties are to be found in books.
"The boy who has raised a calf or a pig has learned some of the principles of feeding,
and this with the profit he received made the work amount to something. Work ��� real
problems���develop strength, self-confidence and ability. Work makes better citizens physically, spiritually, morally, intellectually, economically."
Where work ceases, failure begins. For two thousand years the world has been working and feeding itself. Food is the chief material concern of life, and it is important that the
citizen Le able to feed and clothe himself. Otherwise, degeneration follows, and he becomes
a burden on society.
"Why should I give of my earnings to feed Bill?" says Professor Holden, "when if I
had seen that Bill was properly taught, he could have  fed himself and been happier   in   so
m  do:
ing J
Education is in the air. We are teaching and preaching it���talking it, living it. The
world itself is a great institution of learning, r nd all the people in it are teachers. The exchange of knowledge from one to another goes on without end, both day and night, year in
and year out. From the farm and the factory, every year come thousands of graduates���self-
reliant, economically independent, schooled in the game of making a living. The achievements of others are about us on every side. The great white way leads on. In this great
world of opportunity, there is no excuse for failure. Success both great and small will come
to us as we have eyes to see and brain to understand.

On the staff of a Toronto daily
paper there is an advertising man
who is Scotch and a Presbyterian and
holds views in accord with such an
inheritance of race and religion. It
so happened that h was sent out to
get an advertisement from a tobacco
dealer who was starting a new store
on Vonge Street and was making an
advertising splash.. It also so happened that the advertising man did
not approve of the smoking habit.
lie was in a quandary. What
should he do? Take an advertisement
that his conscience told him was likely
to result in the spread of an evil habit? It was a tough tug on his Presbyterian principles, but bis Scotch
thrift could not permit him to pass up
tbe advertisement altogether. So he
compromised with his conscience. He
went to the tobacco dealer, and made
a contract with him for a ten-line
space���just big enough to be noticed.
He would not take a big display advertisement. He undertook to write
Wije advertisement for the tobacco
man, and thc lattcr's amazement may
be better imagined than described
j when the advertisement appeared, as
"If you WILL smoke���have the
best," etc.
After that the dealer vrote his own
lcs.    Well, it cannot be said that the
money goes to the dogs, anyway.

The law forbids tlie sale of liquor and cigarettes
to minors, but il does not restrain newspapers from going into respectable homes and soliciting the patronage of the boys and girls with

Careful firesides must rely, therefore, upon newspaper's that voluntarily banish liquor and cigarettes, those greal:

The fifty-first anniversary of the
entry of Mr. J. Francis Bursill into
the field of journalism was fittingly
marked last Saturday evening when
a number of Mr. liursill's friends ami
colleagues gave him a surprise party
at Collingwood  Institute,
A feature of the evening was the
pretty dancing by a class of girls from
Collingwood who have been trained
by that clever lady, Miss Goddard.
One in the number, a maid of six
years, charmed the audience with her
dainty steps.
The members of the "Smart Set,"
headed by Mr. Shcridan-llickers. were
presented and contributed to a,l excellent programme,
During the evening Mr. George M.
Murray, editor of the SATURDAY
.CHINOOK, presented thc Institute
with a life-sized bust of Napoleon
Bonaparte, a valuable art treasure
which had been in the Louvre in Paris. In making the presentation, Mr.
Murray observed that Napoleon had
conquered nations and principalities;
Mr. Bursill bad conquered the hearts
of his neighbors. Napoleon could dictate three letters at once; Mr. Bursill
could write, almost simultaneously, an
article for the WORLD, the NRVVS-
Napoleon's letters often called for
the letting of blood; Mr. liursill's articles were filled wilh words of cheer
and instruction, Mr. \V. II. Kenl
made a short speech in which he spoke
of the great work being performed by
Mr. Bursill in South Vancouver.

And when this Christmas eve arrived
I'd been "lit up" for days.
The kids had looked for Santa's call,
my wife was feeling ill,
Hut 1 forgot and passed it up as careless fellows will.
1   laughed at  wife's entreaties  that   I
cut out the stuff���
To  know   I'd  leave   the  booze  alone,
she said  was gift enough.
I   left   her   bedside   laughing���yes,   to
ine  it was a joke���
Relieved  my  sub and  went  to  work,
for 1  was nearly broke.
The first few- hours went well enough,
but I  began to tire;
My lips were dry, my throat was parched, my eyelids burned like fire,
And presently as in a dream a vision
came to me���
In place of keys and mats and slugs
dim  figures   I   could sec.
I saw myself as hearty youth, my wife
was maiden fair,
A pair of lovers filled with bliss, our
hearts as  light as air.
Then this illusion vanished and 1 saw-
in its stead
The church upon our wedding day the
holy words were said
That made us one as man and wife;
'twas then  I  pledged my word
To honor, cherish and to love, though
good or ill occurred.
The vision passed, another came���our
happy honeymoon;
She'd faith in me and I loved her���but
' joys were ended soon,
For I forgot my wedding vows when
I began to drink,
And o.ie by one the children came of
naught but rjftl I'd think.
A squalid home the next I saw, with
youngsters bare and cold,
Their mother pale and worn and ill,
and prematurely old.
I heard the baby ask for me, I heard
my poor wife sigh:
"Your daddy once was good and kind,
but now he's put us by.
have  no  Christmas  toys, my
dear; your pa has other friends;
Our lot is woe and hardship until his
ways he mends.''
The shining keys clicked on  and on;
I neither heard nor saw,
And then I seemed to see a scene lhat
filled my heart with awe.
Tha streets are thronged with people,
the Christmas spirit's rife,
There's joy  and  laughter everywhere;
there's gladness and there's life.
It ut see the wretch with swollen face,
his eyes ablear and red,
Shiv'riug, weak and helpless, wilh look
of fearsome dread,
lie .staggers 'long lhe crowded street;
he moans and down he drops,
Lies   helpless   on   the   pavement   till
some one shouts "The cops!"
I They   fairly   throw   him   in   thc   van,
drive to the jail hard by;
1   look   upon   the   ghastly   face���Oh,
Lord!    My God!    "Pis 1*!

It's a story that you may have heard,
for it happened years ago,
But as a kind of Christmas tale 'twill
int'rest you, I know.
I'd always been a drinking man and
careless in my ways,
A hearty thwack arouses me; says my
old partner, Bill:
''What's the matter, pal, asleep?   Von
look as if you're ill.
It's twelve o'clock, old boy, come
shake: For Christmas Day is here!
Accept a friend's hest wishes for your
fam'ly's Christmas cheer."
I went straight home that Christmas
morn; my wife was much improved.
T   promised  her  to  "straighten  up"���
that night my soul had moved.
Our Christmas meal was frugal, but
our hearts were light and free,
And every Christmas eve since then
our kids have had a tree.
Sometimes  I  still  go with  the  hoys.
but first come those I love;
Thc kids arc grown and married and
the wife's been called above;
When   mem'ry   sometimes   takes   mc
back I scarcely can believe
The  blessed joy  that vision  brought
upon that Christmas eve.
