lots will be held in this city It "ill
be well for the Kevelstoke citizens lo
take advantage of this -ale. as the
property as a home wile is ideal. As
a speculation it is of the soundest, ns
the present demand for homes is sn
much greator then  the supply.
We have assurance from the C. 1\ R.
that the shops are to bo .run at their
fnl! capacity, and this will necessitate
the building of more houses. From a
scenic poinl of vtow, and the sheltered
sunny outlook, Clonrview lots cannot
be excelled for these new homes. The
sale will take place nt the Edison Parlor Theatre, which will be mado warm
nnd  comfortable  for intonding buyers.

The Poultry Yard
11. A. Blanohard, of Puyallup, Wash,
an expert on the raising of poultry,
emphasised I lie necessity of keeping
poultry yards and houses clean, if n
profitable return was to be expected
from ilie money invested in tho business. Good thrifty layers cannot be
expected to be raised wilhout lhe
silkiest attention lieing paid to the
oleanliucas of the fowl. In the winter
season 'this i-, oi mine importance
iliun in  summer,  for then nature   pro-
'vides ilie hen with ,t dust bnili by
which she enn rid hoi'solf of vermin. In
ilm winter iliis  Bhould lie provided f,,r
.her by keeping n box ol road dust in
the hen house. This gives tho i, n
ohanco lo rid herself of iho liltlo _' ,y
Met-, which although uol lho v.,,-i

Nowhere OD the continent ot Europe
has the cause of Socialism made greater progress than in Germany. Its
ter progress than Germany. After years
ot" steady progress, chiefly shown in the
fileotiona to the Imperial Reichstag
held under universal suffrage, in
1907 tho Socialists sustained a serious
reverse and the result was hailed by
its opponoute ns an indication that it
was beginning to lose its hold upon
the German people. This idea, however, ban been rudely dispelled by tho
extraordinary iuoreab-c in tho'*strength
of the Socialist vote as displayed at
tho elections for the lower chamber
Saxon Diet whieh concluded in
tho present month. In the preceding
diet there wan only one Socialist-—
now there will be 25 deputies favoring
Socialism. Ttie gain has Immui made
largely from the Conservatives and to
a lesser extent from tho moderate Liberals, ami the Socialists also captured all tho nine new constituencies created by the recent change in the Saxon
election law.-
Down in tho province of Ijuoboc the
Labormon have got a step ahead of
Manitobn, for they have elected Francois Langlois, Labor candidate, to
the Quebec legislature from the St.
Sauvour district. Of this Cotton'«
Weekly says: The election of I.anu ■
loi.s marks an epoch in tho politics of
Quebec. The French of this province
arc forsaking their church.. Uut haug-
lois is the first symptom of labor
coming to its own."

Protecting the Consumer.
When you buy Watson's Scotch by tbe
bottle you can be sure of getting tbe genuine
article, because we brand our corks and use an
adhesive capsule bearing our name, tbat cannot
he removed without tearing.
Unfortunately we are not so well able to
protect ihe man who buys Watson s by the
glass—some dealers will refill bottles.
But, once you become accustomed to the
use of Watson's, any attempt on the part of a
dealer «tp substitute an inferior article is almost

"Dou't marry for beauty alone, and

The London Times publishes u loiter
from Sir Charles Tupper to K, L. Borden duted Nov. 20, on lhe question of
tho Cuuadiun  navy.    He says:
All that is required is lhat tho gov
eminent ot the day should carry oui
tho resolution pussed in lhe House of
Commons at Ottawa pledging parliament to proceed vigorously with lho
construction ol the    Canadian navy."
Sir Charles canhoi undorstand tho
demand for Droudiioughts nml cannot
avoid ihiuking thai a foarful responsibility will rest on thosJ who disturb
or destroy tho compact entered into
ut tho Imperial Dofonco couforouce ou
this vitally important question.
Tho Times editorially says lhal Sir
Charlos Tuppor's letter should contribute strengthening concord between
Laurier and Bot-don on iho uuvulques-
tiou. The Time-. Bays Limner's speech
ou November lolb contains tlie true
ideal of imperial unity.
"Ii is uot really derogatory," ii
Says, "lo ihis lofty ideul to BUJ as
Sir Willrid also suid on lhe .-iiuio
question, 't.'uuada would haven lluvy,
and ihut navy would not go to war,
unless ihe parliament of Canada chose
to send il.' In lhe ubsiiuci such u
proposition is indisptuble, in ihe abstract it applies to any nml every
lorm of co-operation or contribution
for ilie purpose of imperial dofenco,
but in ibe coooroto ii is certain     tlio
eoiisidi'1'nlions und motives whi,h have
served to bring ubout the present situation will also serve to maintain nud
develop it."

Every housewife  who uses flour must be
interested   in   ROBIN  HOOD "the flour that
is different."
You hear it makes a bigger loaf, that the loaf is
sweeter-flavored, more nutritious, more easily
assimilated than bread made with other Hours.
We can tell you why ROBIN HOOD Flour
makes that kind of a loaf, but what ought to interest you more than "why it does" is that "it does."
You can prove what we say as true at no risk of
loss to yourself.
It is largely a matter of making up your mind to
use "Robin Hood."

was no reason why the defendant

Mr Briggs poiuted out it was ub-

its selling wus a contravention of the

r\NOK IN A YEAR, very, very near the
^ end of the twelve month, there coiur-s
a Certain Night. It is a night of Happy
Thoughts—or dear, pleasant memories. Little children go, all too soon, to bed, and the
kindly old Sandman delays his coining, for a
time at least, reluctant to interrupt their
childish hopes and fears. Grown-up folks
ll'ui' grown folks havo u strange babil of
silting up on such important nights! tip-toe
-'i-altliily ant creakily almut tin- house.
The little empty stocking hangs ut the
chimney piece—a dear llttlo, quaint little
stocking that is all too small to hold lhe
precious things the loving Saint will bring
before tho dawn will hre.-ik on Christ inns
morning. Perhaps Hip little stocking will
he a bit larger at each recurring t'liristnias-
llde, and hang alone. Or, in years to come,
other and Bl 111 tinier stockings may hear it
company; pot baps even there will come a
dreary lime whin ihe the place is bare,
whin longing eyes turn away ami the flick-
i-i ing light of the- fire i.- hard and cold. Hut
no mutter what the years bring or tako
away, the spirit of Friendship and Kindness
remains: At the end of the busy year, full
ol etfoit and struggle, comes lhi- season
when we forget the (rials and welcome the
opportunities—when wc count our friends
nntl find them many when we choose for
tin-in remembrances (noi hastily ami because
of theii cost, but because of the pleasure
ihey will bring) when wo realize to the full
that life is worlh living, because for once it.
