one ol the performers from thc small
est tot to old Santa Claus himself
did his or her part most creditably.
Tho costumes were most becoming
and sonic of them very beautiful, adding greatly to the attractiveness of
thc cantata. Thc sight that greeted
tbo eye when over eighty children
were grouped ou the stage for the j
linul choruses, wus oue uot soon to I

It is a dillicult task tu select those
worthy ol speeial mention as all did
so well, but as ter as space will permit, mention might be made of some
of those who took thc leading parts.
Miss Jeannie Little, as Mother Goose
acted her part ably, entering into
thc spirit of the diflerent situations
most admirably. Thc sweet voice ot
little Klsie Frey as Ihe Little Bird
that Tills, delighted thc audience,
while Little Boy Blue, in the person
of John MeKinnon, looked nnd uctcd
his part well. The Jolly Beggars
sang in their own characteristic style, under the leadership of Tommy
McRae. Douglas Abrahamson took
the part of Old Doctor Foster, and
sang well. Thc entrance ot the Woman iu tbe Shoe, with her children
pulling tlle shoe, while two of them
occupied plstces inside it, greatly delighted the audience. Miss Inn Brown
iim the Old Woman, sang "I have so
Many Worries" in a most pleasing

To the settler the garden ot Edeu
valley oilers great inducements, as
the land can be had at reasonable

it is also easily cleared, having been
logged off and burnt over. The

self seeded, growing timothy and ied

As there are probably 500 people
iu this valley there ls a splendid opening for a neat hotel here. A doctor would also do well, while for a
portable mill and a shingle mill there
is a grand opening, us there is any
amount of water power at hand,
from numerous mountain streams.
That "The Garden of Edeu" cau
produce good fruit of all kinds, can
be proved by a visit to some ot the
farms, notably those of Mr. A. 8.
Haycock, who has a young orchard
ol 800 trees, while J. H. Johusou
has 4000 apple grafts, he bas also
ordered 6000 for next spring. Mr.
Eric Ericson has a nice orchard of
apples, plums, etc., aud Mr. A.
llagmstrum has the commencement
of a very nioo orchard and E. IS,
Soruerville has several hundred trees
Besides these there are several or -
cliards planted years ago ou thc
ranch of B. Lebmans and Mrs. L.
Loftus also at Mr. Wipers farm.
During 1910, sixty enrs ol hay
vegetables, wood aud other produce

soups, sauces, omelets, etc. The attendance  at  all   these  meetiugs    was
i particularly  good,   thc  gentlemen  at-

enjoyed a taste ot the good things
prepared by Misa Livingston. Tbc

very kindly installed a range to be
used  during  thc  meeting  for  demou-

Livingston goes to Trail.
ter mile runner and is bent on guin-
ing tbc pole, it would be wise for a
man who is not so fast to let him
have it aud thereby let him set the
pace and after the Quarter you are
in a better position to keep a quick
paoe uud make the sprint at the finish.
Strategy has to be used and il ut
all possible, you should know how
your opponents run and must dis-
tiibutc your strength over the race
so as to counteract as far as possibla
those of other competitors.
it would be unwise for a slow man
to try and gain thc pole or the lead
at the start, because a fast miiu
could run him oil his teet. By letting
tlie faster man set the pace tho slow
man would have an easier time in
the first quarter mile because tbero
is no need of giving much thought
to jour gait.
lt is a good thing to attend all
the championship, meets or any other
that cau bc attended, tlniB giving
you a chance lo study the methods

Important that the runner should
'pay strict atteution to good form,
'and to thc manner of striding, thc
knees should be carried fairly high
and thc runner should run on tbe
ball of his foot. Now, while a loug
stride is desirable the runner should
take care not to acquire an exaggerated style. Thc Btyle -hould be natural and comfortable and the runner shoiiid lie able to sprint when cal
led upon to do so. The heels should
not lie raised too high, as it tends
to waste energy and develop a slow

Stories of Knowing (hicks
"Mow old Is a middle-aged lien'.'"
writes Peter McArthur from his retreat at lCklrid, in tli-c heart ol rural
Ontario.   Then lie continues:
You needn't bo afraid to answer.
There is no catch about it. 1 am
honestly asking lor information.
One duy a friend told me lie had
sonic liens to sell. Wishing to up-
pear interested and to make conversation,  I asked:
"How old are they?"
"Oh, just middle-aged,"  he  replied.
That brought mc up with a jerk. I
thought 1 knew quite u lot about
hens, but that answer stumped mc.
Of course, I didn't lot on to him that
I was so ignorant. I just said, "Ah
indeed," or something like that, and
chunged the subject. Then I began
to question people quietly, but 1
could lind  no one  who could  make u
j decent guess at the age ot a middle-
aged hen. As time past I asked move
boldly, but could get no light, ami
now I am shamelessly asking tbe
question in public, [eeling sure thnt
the mujority ol people are just as ignorant as I am.
The books on hens to which I have
access tell just how long It is proOt-
! able  to  keep hens,  and  ut  whut  age
; they should  be  tinned  over    to    the
I boarding-house keepers,  but they give
no hint of the uge a lieu might reach
II allowed to run her course in good
. health. I beard of one hen that lived nine years after she had been
bought as a safe und reliable hatcher
but there is no knowing how old   she
I wns at the time of purchase.     Possi-
j bly the information I am liiiutiiin lor
is practical  value,  but  I should real-
'■ !y like to know just what age can be
attained by  a     clean-living    hen    of

Tbc inde   laughter   with   winch Ma

out:' Y'ou put iu a lot ol your lime
at nature study, but just because
' hens arc under your nose all the time
you know nothing about them, Ho
you know why a rooster crows at
| night?"
1 confessed my ignorance.
"Well, you needn't feel badly about
I it. There isn't a scientist in the whole
llot who can make even u deccut
guess at it. Crowing at. night seems
to contradict the story ot evolution.
Wo ono cun figure out what good it
does, and every fool knows that it
tells all tbc crcuturcs that prey ou
the chickens just where they are
roosting. It is u wonder the whole
race of jungle fowl wusn't killed oil
before men tamed tlioni and took
ihem into their barnyards. And in
i-pite of all tbe strange tilings about
hens thc best papers can do is to ask
'Why is a hen?" or 'Why does a hcu
cross the road'." or some such fool
(|iiestio"n as that. Lots oi people havo
studied the hen, und yet the hen, as
a hen, is us much unknown as tho
wildest bird of the woods."
Having reduced me to submission,
ihe old-timer returned to his original
"It you know anything about hens
you would know that what I said
about a chicken learning to know its
mother while still in the shell is tho
straight truth. Even Incubator chickens get to know the person who is attending the incubator before they
iome out of the shell."
He paused defiantly, but finding
Ihut there wus no opposition he resumed  his tale.
"Lots ol times I have had hall a
dozen cluckers bring out their :hlck-
<ns in the sume bouse ou the same
day. When I would go iu among ttem
tbey would naturally get mixed up,
but it would take only a few minu -
lis [or them all to get straightened
out again. Just a few clucke f.om
the old hens and lhe Mixed up en <K-
viis would separate into groups. If
one happened to run to the wing
hen he would begin to -peop.i ccp" at
the top of his voice. You collid see
.it once that he knew he h.ul made a
mistake, and it wouldn't be long I r-
fone the old hen he wns vi-nting would
peck at him nnd tell bim I j bo on
his way. You Or I couldn't t'.'i tinpe
llully chickens apart, hut tne hens
that hutched them could -Ml every
time. Although a ben will r.o'. notice
il she loses some of her chickens, sat
nill raise a rumpus ut once If you
try to give her some that ilo nov. I e-
loag to her. To get back to what *e
were talking about, if a ihick'n can
tell the cluck of its own raot'nT from
the clucking ol a lot of othir hens
just after it gets out of the chotl ho>v
could ii lenrn to know her voice except by getting used to it while Mill
In thc shell? Chickens are cftrn
awake and 'peeping' a souple o! <! <ys
before they come out, anl >oU enn
hear their mothers crooning ei.d
clucking to them just tho game ,s
they do after they are hat-iied. Theft)
are thincs that you can lind out fi r
yourself by making a careful stv.-y of
some of my old hens Instead ol nature faking."
"But what you said about incubator chickens is pretty still," 1 protested.
"tt mny seem like that to you, but
lt is perfectly straight, I have nt-
ti'iiiled to many an incubator of chickens and  ns a mattei   of course  kept
ou tulking to the old ludy while Urn
ing the eggs uud regulating the heat.
Well, sir, those incubator chickens
are never afraid ol mc, but will
'peep, peep' when I am around just as
■if 1 were their mother, but they will
run into the brooders aud hide if a
Stranger appears. They will do this
Irom the time tbey come out ol the
shell, and the only wuy I cun account
for it iB that they lenrned to know
my voice while they were still In ihe
Seeing that I was swallowing every
thing that he hud to say, he went on:
"t)o you happen to know that n
hen bas a self-locking grip ou the
roost when bIio goes to sleep at night?
When a hen bends her knees her toes
cloBe of themselves. You can observe
that at any time if you watch a hen
when she is walking and stepping
high. The benefit of that is that
when a ben bends her knees and settles down on the roost her toes have
a grip that will not let go, however
soundly she sleeps. She must straighten herself up before she can let go
her hold. That is why it is so hurd to
pull alien oil ihe roost at night and
why she squawks so much if you
try it."
"1 don't know whether scientists
class hens as birds of prey or not, but
I am sure they arc iu some way related to the hawks. A hen will kill
young birds or little animals and cat
them, just tike any hawk. You know
thoBe big bruhmu roosters I have iu
tho coop beside tne cornfield? Well,
every time I go and take up a shock
of corn or go do some husking they
always follow me and thcro isn't a
i ghost of a show for a mouBe to get
awuy.   The collie dog goes with   me
