The popular  idea these days is to    buy   as  much in the old home town as  it is possible, and this is made  easier this year than it has ever been    before,    because    our  merchants have had the    foresight to put in an   extra   fine  sisting townspeople    to    solve  sortment, with the object of assisting    residents    in    solving  the Christmas problem and to  keep their money at home.    No  better way of boosting the   old  home town can be found than  that of    supporting   its    merchants, who have located here  to serve the people.    More and  more is the work of the village  merchant appreciated/and each  year he becomes a more important factor in the up-building of  the community, and he ought to  be supported.      The merchant  is one of the greatest friends a  small community town can be  blessed with. He is always willing to do us a favor if we are  hard up against it.    He makes  a large investment in goods and  pays many other expenses    in  connection with his    business,  and a great deal goes to individuals in the community.      All  this is done with the hope that  ho will be able to serve the people to their satisfaction.      Unless one stops to think he does  not realize what a big chance a  merchant takes when he opens  up for business in   any   place.  Let us use every effort to commend him for "doing so by giving him support all   the   year  round, and especially at Christmas time.  We are all wondering   what  we will give our friends at this  time of the year, and in the a-  bove picture Santa Claus is represented as peeking around to  see what people, big and little,  want to buy. A visit to the local stores will support our contention that the merchants   of  VICTORIA,    Dec.       6.���������The  The nearest approach    to;a  fist fight in the British Columbia legislature in recent   years  came last night when Ian Mackenzie,    Liberal''"member    for  Vancouver,, threatened    R.    H.  Pooley,  Conservative    member  for Esquimau, with    dire   destruction, as a result of considerable cross-firing    hurled    a-  cross the chamber   during   the  course of a speech on the budget delivered by the member for  Esquimau.  Apparently nettled by a reference to a certain.incident of  three years, ago, the inference  being the charging of a fee of  $3000 by Mr. Mackenzie's   law  firm for obtaining an O.K. from  the attorney-generaL in an application made to Ottawa for a  liquor export license, Mr. Mackenzie jumped to his feet   and  hurried to his own seat.  "I demand a withdrawal of  that statement on the floor of  this house, or I'I knock him  down outside this house as flat  as this right hand can knock  him" roared Mr. Mackenzie a-  cross the floor to M.'r. Pooley,  pounding his desk in the meantime.  Mr. .Speaker Pauliiie almost  broke the mechanism of his  bell which;he pounded. ,incest"  santly as he declared that Mr,  Mackenzie had no right to  make such threats.  ;Mr. Mackenzie: I withdraw  the threat, but reserve my right  to private adjustment outside  this house. I demand withdrawal of any aspersions upon my  reputation.  Mr Pooley thereupon demanded withdrawal of the slur upon his reputation, and Mr. Mackenzie said if his laugh could be  so construed he tendered an a-  pology. Thereupon Mr. Pooley  likewise apologized, but . no  sooner had the house adjourned  Monthly Report  Of Public School  94.  Div. 1. Teacher, P. A Hughes.

McRAE It IS FUSES THK  LEADERSHIP OF PARTY  After the conclusion of the business meeting at the Men's Club on  Monday, Rev. A. H. Priest entertained the members with some very  enjoyable lantern slides, of "Old  Bill and  the  Better Ole."  The members have a nice schedule  drawn up for the meetings during  the winter, and decided to ask Felix  Penne (Francis Bursil) to address  the club .at an early date.  At the convention held in  Vancouver of the new party it  is found that General McRae is  not to go into the political  game as leader of the new provincial party, lie gave as his  reasons that he has a past, has  timber limits and owing to the  large amount of money he, has  already spent it mighl be considered he had bought his way  into the highest position in the  gift of his colleagues.  He has .however consented (o  accept Ihe, presidency of the  party, and might, also accept a  seat- in the legislature.  No leader will evidently . be  appointed until such time as  an election' has resulted    in el-  , ecting a number in   the   locil  {legislature.

There is less worry about it,and  you know just exactly what you  are getting.  One merchant was heard to  remark this w.eek that he did  not know just exactly what to  stock up with this year, but he  had taken the chance of putting  in a better stock than last year,  and at prices that were, he considered, more reasonable.

During the course of his remarks Mr. Pooley claimed there  is an election.in the wind and  that the people are waiting the  chance to act as executioners  of the present administration.  Reference was made to the deplorable state of affairs in the  department of industries and of  how the deputy. minister had  refused to "come through" with  the proper documents when so  requested..  Attempts on the part of the  opposition to secure details of'���������0  the travelling expenses of the  minister of lands had resulted  m an answer being given that  these expenses had amounted  to-$2025 during the past year.  Under the caption of "general  investigation," however, it had  been discovered that Hon. T. 1).  Pattulo had drawn an additional $5000 for expenses.  Mr. A.

The   bulletin,   which   is  lance or about one half tho distan'v  Mint, separales us from  tho moon.  If  wo gel. lie(mii heat from the sun, then  climbing a  mountain, i,i\ going, up in  a flying machine would take us closer lo ilici sun and consequently warm  or atmosphere. Hut wo find Unit directly   opposite   is   (ho   result   '   and  (In- higher wo climb" the.    colder    it  gets and probably if wo could climb  upward   I'or  fifty   or    one     hundred  miles from (be earth it  would bo impossible to  nioasure Ihe cold as any  insirunioni   we   could     devise , would  freeze solid  and   refuse   lo  work.  So  we   may  possibly    conclude  thai,  wo  do not get any heat  from  the .sun.  Now consider  light and tioe if we,  I hi > I receive heat, from it.      Take a magnifying glass  and   focus   the rays ot  sunlight over a match  or a piece ol  paper and we see it begin to smoke  and. bum.       That is heat,    we    say.  Hut wait, if is winter time and there  is plenty of ice.'    Take'a piece    of  it and  with    your    knife and    your  reath make an ice lens like the glass  lens in thc burning glass. Now hold  it over your match as you  did   with  Ihe magnifying glass and  it will sot  it on fire.      Did your ice lens melt?  No, then the    rays of Light    passing  through it wore nol heat rays..Those  rays that you caught with your lens  and foseussecl onto    that      piece   of  paper  were  continued     from       that  paper to the sun and had reached it  in a  little  over eight minutes.     But  when you  bend them so    that    they  were all concenrated onto    one spot  I hey bored a hole through the paper  the   friction   of   their   boring   caused  it to smoke and    burn    just as    the  mechanic's     drill     becomes     heated  when  he  bores a     hole    through    a  piece of metal.    So. wo see now that.  i thc   rays   of   light   coming   from   the  jsun arc not hot, but if arrested    and  ! broken  become heat.       1'n   the sum-  ' mer time when the sun is more dir-  ���������ectiy overhead we get the rays direct  I through the thin  belt of atmosphere  i tliiit. surrounds the      earth    and the  are  not  much  broken  or  worn  before they reach us so that we have  the  full  force of  their friction       as  they break against the surface of tho  earth and we say,"Thc sun is' hot today." In the winter the light reaches  us  from so  low down  in  the southern  horizon   and passes through,   so  much  atmosphere  before   they  reach  the earth  that they are about worn  out by thc time they roach us,  consequently it takes little to stop them  and so can not cause much heat. Wc  now see that we do not get any heat  directly   from   the   sun   but   we   get  sun rays which are the essence       of  beat   and   when   arrested   cause  heat  through   friction.  But  those  rays  that  we call  sun-  what are    they?     Out in  the  great infinite there is no light, darkness that equals in  density the cold  that  wc  have spoken  of,  yet across  this  void  comes  these rays  that  ws  call light. So we stand at. night and  look   up at   the  black     vault of  the  heavens lit by thousands of stars, we  see   no  rays   of sunlight   pouring  a-  cross the sky, yet when    the    moon  rises and sheds    her    silvery    light  upon  us we know that it is reflected    sunlight.       Whence     comes   it?  The sun has long set in the west and  the  moon  now rises iu the east but  across the great arc of heaven flashes  no ray of light that we can see. Yet  it is there.    Those rays we have  fes-  cribed as the essence of heat are being  poured  through    space, striking  against  the   moon,   generating  light,  which   is  reflected   to  us  and  which  lights up everything from the moon  to  us  and   perhaps     farther.     FTam-  marion  tells us in  one of his works  "Astronomy for Amateurs" of watching an eclipse of the; sun and noting  tiie  streams  of  light  projecting   out  over the edge    of    the    moon    into  space.  /These were broken sun  rays  changed to moon light and if    measured  would give us an approximate  idea  how  far    actual,   light    might  reach.    Comets have been seen with  tails millions of miles    long.      This  brags us to the conclusion that there  is neither heat    nor    light    coming  from the sun but those rays of energy    or power that    even our atmos-  ���������itb  ;i'i  size of a pea.

What  are Iho rays we call sunlight and  heat, surely there must bo a supreme  power, a god, we 'must follow them  further.  Do   you  Mr.   Citizen,    .look  your town as a tangible part o  earthly  possessions?  Do you feel your town belongs in  part to you? Do you feel that you  "belong"   to  it.  With each 'and every man jack or  :;s coming (o a greater realization  that our town is,ours and wc are  part of it a greater spirit of civic  r-onscience is going to bo developed.  This will result in a. higher type of  service that each one of us will, render to the  town.  It will result, in your town lieing  placed on a higher plane than it has  ever before occupied. This will result in each and everyone of us going  out with a stronger feeling that our  town is ours and we iare part of it.

"The modus operandi" for the attainment of this great realization,  the vehicle of this entire proposition,  the force of this entire movement  which will carry our town forward,to  the place in our national life which  we would have it occupy, is YOU.

No town ever made real  progress in the way to substantial  success without' the get-together  spirit unanimously adopted. It has  rejuvenated old hulks of towns that  were yawning their way into endless  sleep. It has infused new blood  into the heart of commercial life  and made thriving cities out of paralytic villages.  Natural advantages count for  much and prosperity can not be built  upon shifting sand, but any town  with half a chance can be made ' to  grow and expand and thrive when its  citizens join with one accord in the  boosting   programme.���������Trail   News.

Most of those who are touring Europe this year will  endeavor to include Gothenburg in their itinerary, and  thousands will probably go to Sweden from all parts  of the world for the specific purpose of visiting the  Jubilee Exposition, which, in physical proportions and  United States tariff commission  commenced recently its consideration of the proposed increase in the  duties on Canadian wheat.  Since the American tariff policy  is, traditionally, a non-preferential  one, any tariff increases will affect  not only Canada but every country  doing business with the United  States.  The sole effect of these tariff increases, so far as British Columbia  is concerned, will be to drive Canada  and Mexico into new trading agreements and to build up permanent  markets for our products in every  country whose goods are shut out of  American territory.  American high tariffs are going  to make Canada hustle.  But when the hustling days are  over, we will find ourselves on the  high road to prosperity with new  trade routes, to countries that will  do business with us on the bas's of  reciprocal tariffs.  It seems that a few of these  knocks have been required to awaken Canada to some of the opportunities she has been neglecting for  years.���������Sun.  One of the important subjects fo  be discussed at the next meeting of  the Transportation Commitee of  the Canadian Manufacturers Association, which will be held on November 9, relates to the question of  freight service between Eastern and  Western Canada via the Panama  Canal. The desirability of using  this water route for the placing more  economically of Eastern manufacture  in Pacific Coast markets and of British Columbia products in Eastern  markets would appear to be self-  evident. United Slates shippers  are already utiliziing the Panama  route in increasing numbers, and  several direct steamship'services are  in operation between U. S. Atlantic  and Pacific ports. So far as Canada is concerned an effort is now being made to get regular services established.  The Canadian Manufacturers Association has directed the attention  of its members to such shipping opportunities by this route as have ol-  fered during the past few months,  and some definite policy with regard  to the matter will probably be formulated at the meeting.   -  Basketball Teams  Play a I Chilliwac  MYmii   tin-   Ki iscr   Vnilcv   Rorr.r I)  Three Mission Haskelb.ill feai  I ravelled (o Chilliwack on W'ediif  day last and engaged teams of ih  town in league I'ixtuiCb.

Everything has been most thoroughly, planned and  the whole community of Gothenburg is working hard  to make its largest undertaking a success. Its beautiful situation on the alluring west coast archepelago  is a great attraction to the town, which is full of interest and variety from an architectural point .of view  also. No expense has been spared by the interested  individuals or the city itself, and for the purpose of  gathering historical material, Baron af Ugglas and  Dr. Sixten Strombom have excavated Gothenburg's  two ancestral cities, Garnla Lodose and Nya Loclose,  and have made some of tlie most important and inter-,  esting archaeological finds in North Europe in recent  years. On the site of the ancient town of Gamla  Lodose near Gothenburg, Baron af Ugglas, has uncovered a church almost as large as thc oresent Gothenburg Cathedral, several smailer churches, city walls,  a castle, private houses, armour, tools, etc., which  ||||������Jj throw considerable light on the history and culture of  =���������������������J early Scandinavia. A model of the church and some  of the armour and tools will be exhibited in the historical section of the Exposition. Dr. Strombom's excavations still continue within the limits of the city of  Gothenburg, and visitors will have the opportunity of  inspecting for themselves the ancient works and fortifications.

The council felt that Mr.  Cla/.ebrook should have slopped bo-  fore thc fill, but their men were at  fault perhaps, for not . signalling  clearly.  Mr, Clazobroo also accompanied  a delegation with Mr. C. Manuel,  W. .lellly and others who wanlod a  mud hole to bo filled on the Paeifie  lighway. Mud had been (brown up  rom the ditches, and puncheon  work was the only means of negotiation now, as gravel would bo lost.  One man offered cedar, another his  team, another free labor. So Councillor Iveay offered planking and the  job was arranged.  The plight, of Glen Valley is very  gloomy for the winter unless the  council comes to the rescue. j\lr.  II. Keelands reported the flooding of  his land and the Mathers road adjoining because tho ditches were not  opened  up.  Mr. Mat. Graham was graphic in  his description of the portion of  this road near him. The big contract on this road did not, reach dryland by .six hundred foot. This  stretch is now a swamp (.bat cannot  be travelled by wagons, but. ho has  to get   his  milk  over  it   wcry day.  He   has   torn   up   planking     from  his barn  to help the worst spots, bn  now has to go round by the Mather's  place   and   haul   his   milk   oyer   the  muddy road by cable.  Planking can bo had across tlui  river'with a short haul, a.nd would  be the only solution of the problem  for this winter. Settlers would buy  the plank in the spring. The council decided to order four thousand  feet from the mill and leave the  placing of it to Mr.  Graham.  To keep the milk truck going  through Matsqui during the winter  occasional, gravelling must be done,  reported Mariner Smith. This was  conceded   by  the council.

Probably the great  redu-tion in the jirice of any  one line has been in the price  of wheat, which at $37 to $8K  per ton i'or (lie No. L feed grade  is lower now than at any, time  since pre-war days. Various  other commodities are al.so,  (jnoted much lower.  With bran and shorts however the reduction, if any. has  been ver- flight. This is due  to the apparent shortage of  these two very necessary poultry feeds, both of which are in  great demand .throughout the  country. This shortage is said  to be on account of the fact that  there is uo export market for  flour and consequently many of  the larger mills are.not working full capacity. Jn view of a  still more acute shortage being  predicted, poultrymen would do  well to place their orders for  these two linos at the present  lime, thus taking every measure possible to ensure their  supply.  In spite of Ihe   shortage   of  bran and shorts and the steady  quotations for other feeds, the  conditions generally'are decid-j  edly inore  favorable than they;  have been  for    a    number    of  years.    Contributing to this also is the price of eggs, which  during the past few weeks has  been sufficient to give a satisfactory returno Even   now although the prices    are    lower,  they are still high enough    to  give a profit.  As a result of this, poultry-  men generally throughout the  Valley are inclined to assume  a more optimistic outlook iu  connection with the future  than that in evidence for the  past few years. Many who reduced their flock to the minimum during the depression are  now considering again increasing their number of birds and  this in itself is sufficient indica  tion of the satisfactory condition. It also promises well for  the demand for baby chicks this  coming spring.  ln endless profusion:  If it is anything for father,  mother, sister, brother or baby  we have it, and at a right price.  It is a pleasure to show them.  Come in and see them.
