people   Feared   Sun   Would
Cease to Shine—Offered Sacrifices Under ThunderOak
Long, long years ago wheu tlio
Jdays were getting shorter acid shorter, thc nights longer aud louger, the
people feared that the suu would
cease to shine. They met under a
great oak tree sacred to the god
Thor, god of war and thunder.
A young mau traveling through
tieruiuuy aud seeing altars under tho
trees, where che people odered sacri-
fi._es to their god, decided to speud
his life teaching the»e folks. j
He speuc many years preaching and
teaching, out few gave up their religion. Une cold winter's uight toward the end of the year, he went
into the forest where the people
gathered to celebrate, and were ahout
to oiler sacrifices under the Thunder
Oak, believed to be guarded by the
mighty Thor, I
At the loot of the Thunder Oak, a
bright tire burned; in the ceutre
knelt a young boy about to be sacrificed to Thor. lu the midst of the
crowd of heathens, Winifred began to
cut dowu the oak. As he cut farther
aud farther into the heart of the
tree, the crowd watched for the
■stroke from Thor that would kill
tlm.
ilut he chopped away, the chips
Hew all mound. A crackling sound
was heard In the top branches, the
tree groaned und with a terrible
crash fell to the tloor, split in four
pieces.
But just behind the tree a young
preen tir tree stood, just as if it had
Bpruug from the very place where tho
oak had be n before. Straight and
graceful was the tir with its branches
turned upward. "Look!" said the
young man, "this little tree is the
child of the forest. It sball be your
tree; it is the word of peace! For
your houses are built of it.
"It is the sign of endless life for
its leaves are green. Sec! It points
heavenward!
' Gather a. out it, not in the wild
woods, but in your homes, where it
requires not sacrifices. Take it to tho
home of the chieftain. Vou shall no
longer go to the shadows of the forest to keep your festivals. You shall
keep them at home with laughter and
sons:. So they took the little fir tree
to the home of Cunlhar, the chief,
where they set the tree in the centre
of tbe hall. Winifred stood at one end
of the hall and told the story of
Eethlehem while the people listened
in silence.

Each one is doing his or her utmost, and many are giving more than
they can aflord. The 5-cent piece is
often as great a sacrifice as the $10
bill. Both are insignificant compared
with the sacrifices made by those in
the trenches. The man or the woman
who is not uelping the empire in
some way is not evert' neutral—is an
enemy.

SUCCESSFUL
BAZAAR
The Bazaar given by the Women's
Auxiliary in thc Howson Block, on.
Tuesday afternoon, was a great success both from a financial and social'
standpoint. From tbe moment the
doors were opened a great crowd of
buyers thronged tbe room. While the
fancy work table in charge of Mesdames Barker, Heard, Holten, Gor^
ilon and Miss Barker was a great attraction, the culinary tahle with its
load of good things to eat was a
close second, where Mesdames Hcn-
derson, Burridge, Kenward, Soames
ami McDonald looked alter the many
customer.--. The winner "f the cuke.
contest was Mrs. Robbins, The candy
table, whicli always appeals to the
kiddies, and Mit- children too, was in
charge of Mrs. Jollifle mil Mrs. Mc
Ken-lie, who did a good trade. The
raffle for the very handsome doll's
set which was generously donated by:
Mrs. Prat: and Mrs. Skene was In
tbe capable hands of Mrs. J. Purvis,
who helped to add considerably to
the fands. The fish pond which Miss
Mary Armstrong managed, assisted
by the Misses Smythe, Field, Bourne,
was mie of the busiest corners, while
the fortune telling booth where Mrs.
Copec rend the palms was more than
busy, "standing room only" seemed j
to he the order. The tea room which
was in chars=> of Mesdames Tomlin-
son, Trimble, Bradshaw, Seagur,
Tuwse . Kelly, and the -Misses I. Henderson. Tomlinsi n, Smythe and Victoria Jollifle, was crowded all after-
noein. but every one was well looked
a'fter. aril Mrs. Skene, who received
the fees, turned in a splendid amount
for this branch of the work. It is impossible to thank all who helped to
make the bazaar such a success, but
the thanks of the ladies are extended
to the Liberal Association for the
use of their hall, and to the gentlemen who helped to get things in
shape. The amount realized is over
two hundred dollars.
Ladies'  gold wrist watches, lfi jewels, fully guaranteed , only $15 at P.
