"Breaking up of School for the
Christmas Holidays," the long
looked forward to event, took
place in Lillooet on December 22.
The joyous/occasion will rank
in the minds of the residents of
Lillooet as7 the date upon which
the Schocfl Children presented to
them qjfVe of the most entertaining programmes they have ever
The entertainment was opened
by Mr. J. S. Bell by a few chosen
remarks explaining the objects
of the occasion.
A good programme was presented by the children and it was
a fine sight to watch them recite
and sing in their amateur ways.
It is one-of the keenest pleasures
on earth to watch the genuine delight as expressed in the faces of
the boys and girls on such occasions as these.
It would be difficult to pick out
the "star" of the evening from
among the children, all of whom
performed their parts very well
indeed, not a hitch occuring
throughout the entire perform-

Mrs. J. A. Asselstine, (piano accompaniment by Miss Goode).
was highly appreciated, as was
the solos by Ellen Bridge, with
Mr. Bridge at the piano.
Considerable credit is due to
Miss E. Moscrop (school mistress), to the mothers of the
children, to Mr.W.T. Bridge (pianist), and to all others who helped to make the evening the success it was, not forgeting those
who served the "goodies."
Refreshments were served a-
bout 11.30 o'clock, and, it being
the  "kiddies night," Jjiey were
supplied with good things first,
the elders getting theirs later.
The childrens' performance evidently awakened the audience
censiderably, for the dauce which
followed, was the best held here
for some time.
The dance brought to a close
the best evening's entertainment
that has beenr staged here for a
considerable time, everyone enjoying themselves.

one is profoundly impressed by the splendid response made by the manhood of
British Columbia in the time of the Empire's need.
This record is indeed or.e to be pn ud

of eligible men in the Provinee who for
various reasons have been prevented from
doing their duty, and it is to these that
the Officer Commanding No. 19 Company

There is no nobler, no more
importantjwork than that of
the teacher in our public
schools. And there is no
work that calls for more judicious care in the choosing
of those who are entrusted
with it. A course at the
Normal School ancl the passing of certain examinations
are not enough to determine
whether a person is suitable
for the work of teaching or
not. The teacher must have
native gifts of patience,
sympathetic insight, and en-
thuiasm in teaching. The
teacher who takes up teaching just for a living is apt to
make a failure of it as far as
the pupils are concerned. If
the work be adopted as a
mere stepping-stone to matrimony or to some future occupation, the teacher's mind is
not likely to be fixed on the
improvement of the scholars
with that whole-souled determination which is desirable.
Under the influence of a
broad - minded teacher the
scholar will absorb lessons
which will later be an enormous influence for good. A
recognition of this fact, and
of the great dependence
placed upon the teacher
should help in the upbuilding
of our youth. Apart from
the influence of the teacher
in the more important de-
need of a concise and accnrate
source of information concerning
Canadian industry, commerce and
finance Such a volume has been
prepared, and published by the
Industrial and Educational Press,
Limited, 45 St. Alexander Street,
The opening chapters of the
book are devoted to a discussion
of modern business methods as
applied to Canada, in which the
author deals with three divisions that parent's "question
' 'Being an American myself,
but living'amongst a people
who have been giving their
sons for more than two years
now, having watched a loved
nephew-start for the front
over a year ago—still another
American boy—and having
recently learned that he fell
in the battle of the Somme
on September 15, my heart
has been deeply touched by
partments, something might
be said about the desirableness of inculcating a proper
regard to the smaller social
duties. It is not altogether
unnecessary for the teacher
to say something about good
manners. In this respect
some of our teachers might
take a lesson from Japan.
Those who have travelled
through that Kingdom have
frequently been struck with
the polite manners of the
people, and on enquiry, have
found that good manners are
taught not only by the parents of the children but by.
the teachers in the schools.
Then again there is the call
for tidiness, and even for
keeping the streets or roads
free from litter. Waste paper, chewing gum and candy
wrappers are thrown on the
street or on sidewalks, in
such a way as to spoil the
look of a place, In some
countries anything of the
sort is absolutely forbidden,
and the towns are models of
—industry, finance ancl commerce— in a lucid and authora-
tive manner. The aim is to present the information in such a
way as to make it eaeily comprehensible. The volume is of particular value to the young business man and to foreigners doing
business with Canadian merchants. The information is especially useful to Canadian merchants at the present time when
so many firms are beginning to
do an ^export trade, *to which a
considerable portion of the book
is devoted,
The first chapter on industry
deals with each of the various
branches of Canada's industrial
development, in point of extent,
production and possibilities. In
his treatise on commerce the author treats the subjecc in all,
phases, foreign commei*ce, domestic commerce, ocean transportation, inland water transportation, railroads, etc., are taken
up in turn and the methods and
terms explained. The various
markets of the world are described, and a section is devoted to
weights and measures in use the
world over. The chapter on finance deals with a wide array, of
subjects. The author firsts describes the development of banking and instruments of credit,
and then deals with all methods
present use describing each
seperately — foreign exchange,
bills of lading shipping receipts,
etc., mortgages, liens, deeds,
stocks, bonds, and all classes of
insurance are given attention in
this chapter.
Another useful and principal
feature of the volume is the trade
index or directory of all marketable commodities and Canadian
producers. This list embodies a
description of most commodities
and accuarte lists of the Canadian
producers of each, with addresses.
"Here is the answer I
would give to the one who
asks in your paper, 'Was I
right or wrong to consent
to my son entering the Can-,
adian Army?' The mother
of the young officer just mentioned said only a few days
ago: 'Had I still another son
1 would let him go forward.
My son felt the cause was a
vital one, and I would not
hinder no one who would do
his part to win the great fight
for which-my son laid down
his life. If I thought he had
been sacrificed "in vain, then
life indeed would be worthless to .me."
Take notice that Frank Isnardy, whose
address is Chimney Creek, 150 Mile
House, B.C., will apply for a licence to
take and use 50 acre feet and to store
50 acre feet of water out of Sheep Creek,

drains inttfthe Fraser river near the site
of the Government bridge across said
river at Chimney Creek. The storage
dam will be located at S.W. 1-2 sec. 34

to be created is about 50 acre feet, and
it will flood about eight acres of land.
The water will be diverted from the
stream at a point about 1-2 mile from
mouth, of Sheep Creek and will be used
for irrigation purpose upon the land described as pre-emption record No. 1431,
