brings a Smile on Christmas Morning
What better thing can you do for a young
man than to put within his reach—FREE—
every day, the finest shave in the world ?
That's what the gift of a Gillette means!
The new "Bulldog", with its stocky grip and
splendid balance, makes a strong appeal to the
young man. Or perhaps he'd like an "Aristocrat" or a Pocket Edition.
Christmas also gives you a chance to put
Father or Uncle in touch with real shaving
luxury in the form of a Gillette Combination Set.
If he has never had a Gillette, its velvet
shave will be a revelation and a daily delight.
If he already has one, the Combination
feature will be an added convenience, particularly when he is travelling.
Gillette "Bulldog", $5.00-"Aristocrat",
$5.00 Standard Set, $5.00 -Pocket Editions,
$5.00 to $6.00—Combination Sets, $6.50 up.
About the finest "little gift" for a Gillette
user is a Packet of Blades—50c. and $1.00.

THE SOLDIERS SOLACE
John llassall, the [anions Poster
wtist, was recently ut the front, one
ol a jiurty entertaining the troops,
and recounting his experience In a
London paper, he dwells on the im-
portant part tobacco plays in the life
of tlie army. We reproduce part of
bis article here:
"I have recently come back from a
visit to the front, deeply impressed
by the need lor a larjje and constant
supply nt tobacco and cigarettes lor
our soldiers. Our small party Included Alfred Lea ter, aril we did our best
i" entertain the wounded. Wherever
we went we Cound them cheery. Thu
Brst place we played In was crammed
with Tommies, Tommies pressed     up
.'.-all.-,    i   ric'rity   >taee,  Tommies lill-
i d the doorways, tommies peerlug
througb the skylight ol the roof. 1
was due in appear as a broker's man
in Lester's funny sketch, "A Restaurant Episode," but I could not get on
the stage, The audience could neither
move backwards nor forwards, so the
sketch had tn go on without mc. 1
didn't get on until it was all over
and then I did some sketches..
"The stage had a jdano on the Mack
and just nn the edge, When wc had
a dancer and the stage rocked, the
piano would lean over, but it wus
held up all thc time by some of tho
wounded Tommies.
"When 1 finished, they made a
great rush to the stage for souvenirs.
Afterwards the party distributed all
the souvenirs they could possibly
think nf—my sketches went and 60
did my collar and tie, anil in return
the Tommies pave their badges and
their buttons and ribbons, and they
gave the most precious thing to every Tommy out there; they gave us
cigarettes, No man who has not been
cut there e.-m realist^ what that means
to Tommy. He has long and monotonous hours spent in the trenches
with nothing to jiass the time away
• xcept tobacco. It's his one solace,
boon companion, call it what you
like. If he is only kept going with a
reasonable sup) ly he is happy.
"GINGER" AND HIS CIGARETTES
"I saw one very funny Tommy out
there. They called him "Ginger."
Ginger did some remarkable things
with a cigarette—one of them was,
smoking one inside his mouth with
tbe lighted end pointing towards his
spine, lie also had a knack of bribing hie tongue out so that it waggled
around his nose.
"I    often' receive letters from Tommies and Bluejackets.   They never fail
to give me a reminder about tobacco.
lien's a letter  I have just received:
"Sir:—Being at one time in your
employment,  1 thought 1 would let
you know  1 am  in hospital. 1  have
been Invalided from France through
ch si   trouble.   This is a   very   fine
i lace,     plenty       f iine walks,     the
grounds and  gardens at present are
lovely,    Sir,  would  [  j)e asking too
much if | begged of you to send me
some  tobacco,  as 1  receive no   pay
while I urn a patient."
"I    think     it    is one of the finest
things we can do for the men who are
fighting 'mr battles.
"All these things make me think
what an Important part tobacco doeB
play In life. But just think how very
much more lm] ortant it Is t.i those
B out there."

VEGETABLE SEED  SITUATION
SEMI-HARD COAL
FOR GENUINE COMFORT FOR THE WINTER Bl'RN MY
SEMI-HARD COAL
NO COAL ON THE MARKET CAN  EQUAL IT.
S. G. Robbins, Revelstoke, B. C.
FIRST    STREET OR PHONE 60.
The following extract "f an article
from a newspaper of Gothenburg,
Sweden, will be of [nterest to growers of vegetable seeds. The article refers In the Hoard of Directors of the
Agricultural College ot Alnarp, Sweden,     asking     'for a government grant
for    the encouragement  of  vegetable
si'i'd growing.
"The board points out that the War
has most clearly emphasized the im-
jiortance for the country, of ho ie
production of vegetable seed. Owini',
to the most important vegetable seed
producing countries having prohibited the exportation of such seed, the
prices of a greut number of important vegetable seeds have risen enormously. And, still worse, some seeds
can hardly be obtained at any price.
It is reported, from a well informed
s-ouree, that vegetable seed growing
in the countries engaged in the war
Mas been largely neglected during tne
past summer and that for this reason further advances in prices can be
r-xpected. Reports from Germany
ftnto that thc supply of seed of spinach, carrots, most kinds of cabbage,
onions, cucumbers and peas is utterly
mall. Furthermore. Germany has
prohibited the export of vegetable
reeds to the end of the wnr. Thcre
i? therefore every reason lo fear that
we have to face tbe possibility of a
i ery serious shortage of certain vegetable seeds."

bonaflde farmers only should be established throughout the province at
all points where an interest can he

send delegates to a convention where
n central executive representing tbem
all should he elected.
A campaign to organise local associations throughout the province
has been Btarted and 'ocal associations are already formed and ollicers
duly elected. As this work has to he
undertaken by voluntary workers and
it is impossible to do it throughout
the whole province by the individual
efforts of the (irgantzation Committee
we Bhould be glad if every active farmer in his district would appoint
someone to represent them to communicate with the Organization committee  at   Kelowna.

will be in safe and trusty hands.
In relation to the provincial administration, a few minutes ago I
drew attention to when Sir Richard
McBride came into otliee in the year
1903 he found a depleted treasury,
The first surplus thc province ever
had wus after that yeur. The good
times of a few years ago were made
possible by speculation in the province
of British Columbia. This was not
confined to British Columbia alone
hilt included Western Canada and the
Western States. This wns curried on
not only on timber lands but in real
estate as well.. "Whut individual at
that time would ask an administration li> cry halt on good times?'' It
wns till very well now to claim that
the administration of the country assisted speculation but it can easily
be demonstrated that the people in
the western part of Canada and    the
Western Slates are far more speculative than the people in the i;id. We
.   list   realise   that   the   individual       6f-
i irt  or company  promotion   involves
n greal   deal of speculation, The   development   Of  Western   Canada      must
depend t" a great extent on specula
tion.
When thr country was getting on
Its feet requests were made for better
transportation, Mfter referring the
railway policy to the people it met
'with the entire approval of the province. We find tn day in British Columbia     the    completion  within   the
iast three weeks of the third trans-
( ntinental railway and the completion of the const to Kootenay railway, done at practically no expense
t the people of BritiBh Columbia except a small subsidy to the Kettle
Valley railway. Tins policy received
a very handsome endorsation and a
e iter appeal In 1912 found that the
people "f British Columbia unanim
ously approi id e.f the railway policy
of Sir Richard McBi I le and of all
other questions,
Thc great Liberal party mice so
prominent had completely disappear-
i d from the British Columbia legls-
; iture.

UNNING a big Mogul on schedule time is about
\> as complete a brain, sinew and nerve test as a
man could want. So when the order comes for
"An Extra Run," that engineer is wise who fortifies
himself with a cup of FRY'S COCOA. FRY'S, because
it builds for "nerves of steel." It's such a splendid food
as well as a delicious beverage.
Drink FRY'S regularly yourself and note the vigor
it imparts.

Legal jurisprudence, mother iienm,
irs, bare escajies from deatb
and destruction, suicide and bear
skins mingled in a medley of tlirill-
iiil' narrative Wednesday a week airo
at Wilmer when Magistrate Hewitt
wa." called upon to deride the ijuestion of whether or not a mother
grizzly committed suicide over the
loss of her oflsjuinL', nr was shot by
.lames Anderson and W. A. llrmiRton
with sportive intent, says the Golden
Star.
Some weeks ago Messrs. AwlcrRon
and Ormiston were good pals. so
good in fact that they were willing to
flght crizzly bears for each other. Id
fact they did have a few rounds with
a family of grizzlies wherein Mr. Am-
dirsnn wns tbe victim of an assault
delivered With malice aforethought.
etc., tbnt  laid  bim  up In bed.
Then there came a breach, said to
been over wbo Bhould possess
.'   .if the  mother  grizzly.
\t    the     time    of    tbl   thiilling ent-
counter with tbe bears many heroics
entered into telling e.f the episode,

bow, when the grizzly had a half nelson on his leg Mr. Ormiston sent a
well directed sin.t behind the Bhoulder
i bat ended t he combat.
Bul Mr. Vnderson wrote tbe game
warden ai Victoria and In turn the
rame warden wrote deputy game
warden Cochrane al Wilmer, who in
inn called upon tbe buntirs to explain before Magistrate Hewitt why
.Mey were killing grizzlies without   B
license.
Heroics, I brills and all the trimmings    to      a   well   staged   bear  flght
vanished Into thin air, for lo, It iic-
veloped tbnt tbe bear was out looking for trouble and tbat the b inters
were thinking of anything but Blgn-
ing up for an encountei.
The case came on for bearing before
Magistrate Hewitt ;,nii Mr. Ormiston
: represented by H. O. Lockwood,
barrister, nf Golden. Mr, Lockwood
readily raised the point that the de
fendant could noi be compelled to
• -sttfy against himself, and when Mr.
Anderson showed tt willingness tei tell
nil he knew about bears and tbeir idiosyncrasies be was ruled nut under
the head  of being  an  accomplice,
Finally Mr. Lockwood allowed Mr.
Ormiston to take the witness box and
tell all about thai memorable bear
fight.
According to the evidence the hunters were strollinr alorr; talking of the

lt is reported that about a dozen
men are employed in development
work on the Molly Gibson by the
Consolidated company.
Authorities whose opinions are of
value believe that tbe end of the war
In Europe will not bring an immediate or even an early fall in the price
of metals that are now being used
largely by munitions manufacturers,
but that the demand aud prices will
be sustained during an extended reconstruction period by the requirements of European count 'les, In addition to increased demarris for such
materials in this country, incident to
i nlarged naval construction plans.
Tber" is greater divergence of belief
regarding the future of silver than
of any other metal, but the preponderance of expert opinion! appears to
be optimistic and predictions are
made that the coming of peace will
be signalised by the greatest advance
for the white metal that has been
1 nown for a   generation.
The Slocan Star Mining company,
operating the Slocan Star mine at
Sandon, B. C, has disposed of 500
tons of its stored zinc concentrates
nt a satisfactory price, and expects
to close a contract for tbe entire zirc
output of the property soon. It is
said that the company has several
attactive oilers for its zinc product
.Mid that a contract will be closed
nrobnblv he'ore Jan. I.
Stockholders state that there Is no
truth in recently published statements
tbat a contract already bad been
closed witb a zinc smelting company,
as the different oilers are being con-
pHrtnred cre'i'llv before any definite
■'C'iii't is ta' en. The comnnnv now is

Superintendent H. Q. Norrie of the

ton told the Omineca Herald that, the
lower vein on the property was showing up very well. They bad stripped
ii for a distance ol WO feet witb ore
I ll the waj [rom 12 inches to four
feet width. The vein widens in places
to s:x feet. How much farther the
ore shoot extends will be determined
at a later date when stripping will
be resumed.
In the main workings a second raise
is being run from the 150-foot level
to t.he surface. In doing this work a
nee bunch of ore was encountered
nnd the 111 if I -M gr ide shipping
ore is growing apace.
Speaking of the ore on the old
dump the superintendent stated that
they  had  recovered  nver   1     tons      to
' ite and a i"t more is '.. be bi cured
\.t. Everything is now being closely

Now  Is   the  Time  For  Home  Manufacturers to Score.
In Europe :be making of cheese is
a line art. In Canada cheese Ib, or
has been, a tu. ler of commerce. Thp
wur on the continent is Canada's
chance. Competition's wings are
clipped. To-day there is the opportunity to establish a reputation lor
Canadian mai'.e cheese. This is the
opportunity which the Dominion Department of Agriculture urges our
cheesemakers to make the most of.
Canada is rich in fallacies. One
of the most thriving of these fallacies is the Idea that the domestic
product cannot possibly equal the
European born article. Experts agree
that some of our home-made products are in a class ".'ith the foreign-
made. But the label "home-made"
is the thing that damns our cheeses,
Tbere is Limburger cheese. Ita
quality is superior to and Its price
cheaper than the European product.
Long ago it drove its European rival
out of the market. As a matter of
fact little foreign Limburger has
been Imported into this country for
years. But Limburger consuming
persons continue to consume, blissfully Ignorant of the facts in the
ease. They still believe they are eating a foreign cheese. Well, they are
not eating foreign cheese. Most of
it is mad.' in Western Ontario in the
German districts.
Then there Is Swiss cheese, which
has     done   much    to   add   to   life's ]
gayety.     It  can  be  made  in  Canada
with the   same   degree   of   tastiness
and with just as many holes   as the j
foreign product.
Camembert of the best quality al-l
ways conn.lands a good price, but It1
has suffered in this country through
opposiiion on   the part of   the   pro- <
moier of the imported article.
In   addition    to   Camembert there!
are a number of other fancy foreign'
cheese  which are  popular   here and
which  could   doubtless    be    Imitated
successfully    by    Canadian    cheese- ]
makers   after   a  little   experimental I
work.     Among    these   varieties   are
Edam. Gouda, Parmesan, Roquefort.
Stilton  aud C.orgonzola.
It has   been   the   custom   among
Canadian manufacturers to turn out,
one  or  two varieties  of cheese  and;
stick  to that.    This  is  the fault ol
the public that pins its faith to the I
Imported   product.     It   would   be   a
wise  move on tbe part of Canadian
manufacturers to label their c eesee
very   frankly    as    Canadian    goods,
The consumer   can   then   judge   foil
himself.    Dm if the Canadian manufacturer is to win and keep Canadian
custom he must think more of quality in the future.    Otherwise the ad- j
vantage will be only temporary.
The New Lord Clarendon.
Canada has now an earl among ber
permanent residents In ibe person of
the new Lord Clarendon, who has
just succeeded to the title. The late
Earl of Clarendon died recently at
Mis Beat, The Grove, Watford, Herts.
Lord Clarendon, who was sixly-
<-i-ht. bad a record of long service at
Court. He was a lord-in-walflng to
Queen Victoria. As Lord Chamberlain be was responsible for all the
di tails ol the coronation of King
Edward. He bad been aide-de-camp
to King George since 1910. A perfect host and a good sportsman, his
shooting jiarties were famous. An
an connoisseur, he enriched the mag-
nlflceni collection which he Inherited,
Including the copy of the Gobelin
tapestry of Raphael's cartoon "The
Miraculous Draught of Fishes." presented to bis father, the Victorian
Statesman, by Napoleon III, at the
Signing of the Treaty of Paris. He
was a felicitous and cultured speaker.
Lord Hyde, his only son aud heir,
who is aged thirty-seven, married a
sister of Lord Somers. With their
two children they settled in Canada
just over two years ago on a farm
nf over 2nu acres al Pickering near
Toronto. Lady Hyde said she Intended to become a practical farmer's
Wife and ii" all the work she possibly
could herself.
