A recent onler-in-council adopted by  the PrOA'incial Executive, and which applies to eA'ery school in the Province,  reads as follows: "It is required of  each and every pupil of a public school  or high school that he be subject to tlie  school discipline on the school premises,  in going to and coming from school and  at all games and school functions avIicii-  eA'or and Avherever held." For some  time past it has been observed.. .that  when the lively youths from the high  school of one city get into ���������another in  attendance at some game between two  schools they have a feeling that  "school's out," so to speak, and they  can raise all the ructions they please.  Miss McCorkell, avIio .has been teaching 'the'.'second division in the public  schools here, has resigned her position  and moved to Vancouver.  Miss McMaster, of the local telephone  staff, spent the holidays witk friends in  Blaine and Bellingham.  Mr. .1. Ball,  of' Peardoiiville, was  Adsitor  to tOAA-n on Friday.  -Mr. and Mrs. W. M.

Tlie Postal Library is a project to  make the exchange of books among the  people of Canada as easy and inexpen-  siA'e as-it is to' receive or send ordinary  mail. ' /, - .   "        ,    .  '" Q. Has such a library -been provided,  in ;any other country?  A. No. It-is a new scheme, and affords Canada an opportunity.to not only add a much-needed public service for  the people of this Dominion but also to  lead-the other nations in a great move  ment. ��������� < ���������'  Q. Why  is  it  called  the Postal, Library? ' '     r  -A. Because the library, is to be provided by the people of Canada and operated by the Post Office Department.  Q. Why  should  the  Government undertake to provide libraries?.  ' A. A  survey , of   the   whole ��������� country  sIioavs that the people.are .new poorly  supplied with  library facilities.    Heretofore , philanthropists such as Andrew-  Carnegie have been largely relied upon  to supply the1 needs  of libraries..   De-���������  penpendencc. upon philanthropy  is unworthy the great Canadian people.   Besides the results of such dependence to  date are Arery meagre    and    scattered.

CHRISTMAS TREE  The Christmas Tree in connection  with the Presbyterian Sunday school  held on.Christmas Eve was so well attended that standing room was at a  premium. The children entertained the  large audience with their songs and recitations in a way that reflected credit  on their teachers.

" The reports however show  that nearly one-half the people of Ontario  are .still out  of reach  of any library privileges.    The  other .provinces  are far behind Ontario.

Postal Library will supply the whole  ���������need of all "the people of every community in the country and that without  delay.  Q. Why  should  the  Post  Office  Department operate the library?  ���������    A. The  Post   Office   operates   every-  wdiere and all the time.    It,is already,  established.    It noAV has housing-facilities in every" community.    It has the  best and most inexpensive facilities for  distribution and collection-   of    books.--  The addition of the library sendee to  the Post Office is certainly as natural  as that of the Parcel post.  Q. Would tlie reservation' of education to the provinces by the British  North America Act prevent the Dominion Government from undertaking the  Postal  library?  A. Writing on this subject the Hon-  orableorable J. R. Boyle, Minister of  Education for the Province of Alberta,  says:  "If     the     Dominion   tGovernmen  Avere prepared to undertake this work  " ther Avould be no serious objections to  their doing so on  any  constitutional  grounds.''  The Act confers all Tost Office authority upon the Dominion GoA'ernment.  The Postal Library is a public servico  clearly beyond Provincial administration.  QQ. Would the Postal Library ^include, public reading rooms, such as are  now attached to public libraries in some  Canadian cities?  A. A public reading roomlydPtare hr  A.

Rev. Mr. Kohl preached impressive sermons. Tho subject in the  forenoon was "The Incarnation of  Jesus Christ," and tlie evening avc had  a practical and telling address 'on  '���������Lessons from the Shepherds of Beth-  leham."  Mrs. Win. C<>utts,an<l Miss Bell sang  appropriate solos much appreciated.  The Xmas free concert was a great  success in every respect. The prospects  of seeing the children act a number  of scenes from Longfellow's Indian  poem, "Hiawatha" brought a large  crown, the Avcather being ideal. Tho  concert began by tho avIioIc audience  singing "Hark the Herald Angels  Sing." The first part of tho program  was .filled by the children dressed and  colored like Indians, acting some of  scense in TlhiAvatha conducted by Miss  Reid. A forest glade Avas extemporized  "on the platform Avhere the children acted in splendid style and at the close of  each scene were heartily applauded.  The second part of the program was  conducted by Miss Bell, Avho had the  children Avell trained in choruses, songs  and recitations. All the children took  part in the Xmas choruses. A trio was  Avell sung by the Misses May and  Sadie Gillis and EfTie McLean. A good  dialoguo, "At Lunch in a Restaurant"  was given by the Misses Emily rCox,  Lucy Owen and Effie McLean. The  Misses Eilie and Katie McLean and  little Janet Millor recited "-very Avell  indeed. The. Christmas tree was decorated and well covered with presents.  Each child received a bag of- candies  and nuts. Rev. Mr. Reid presided and  expressed his pleasure at seeing so  many present to enjoy the excellent  concert provided for them and he hoped  the interest and attendance Avould' increase in the Sabbath school after having such a pleasant and profitable  evening. A number of children got  small gifts for attendance and diligence   at   the   Sabbath   school   durin  WORK BEING RUSHED  ON BIG BRIDGE  Messrs. Armstrong & Morrison, the  Avell-known bridge contractors, of Vancouver, are rushing work on the substructure for the big railway bridge  for tlie Kettle Valley over the Fraser  Ivive'r at  Hope.  The same firm built the Provincial  Government bridge over the Eraser in  .1902-8' and- they have more plant on  hand for the present job than they  had oii the bridge at New Westminster.  There are three piers to be built,  each 24 by ������0 feet in dimension^, and  So i'eet in" height, rising some 30 feet  above Avntor level. Eight thousand  yards of concrete arc estimated to bo  required for this construction, and !2fi  men Avill be employed on the work.  As work Avill go on day and night,  with three shifts of men, very rapid  progress will bo made. The foundations of the caissons Avill be built on  the Avhari" which has been constructed.  They will be launched from there and  towed to place whore they Avill bo  built up and sunk in position. Then'  the air compressing plant'will be con-'  nected up and the caissons forced down  in the bed of the river to firm foundation. l ,  Three stool shafts, tAvo of them two  feet in diameter and one of three feet  diameter will be installed in each  caisson as tlie piers are being built, in  the two smaller shafts material exca-  A'atcd'~from the bottoms of the caissons  will be elevated and material for building the concrete piers will be lowered  in large steel buckets. Tho larger shaft  is for the men to go up and down to  their Avork. Each shaft is air-locked,  steel ��������� doors, perfectly air-tight, being  placed so that the men going down are  locked in a chamber into Avhich the  compressed air is alloAved to enter until  it is at the same pressure as in the  loAver part of the shaft. The loAvcr door  is then opened and the men proceed to  the bottom level. Tho. same method  is used in lowering material, and the  operation is reversed in hoisting up  from the bottom: The men work' in a  constant temperature of about.60 degrees and are not affected by climate  conditions, so that Avintcr is no more  disagreeable. for the work below the  surface -than  summer.

After  votes   of  thanks  for   the  Dominion   and   Provincial   Governments having made grants towards its  all who had done so much to make  the concert a success it was closed by  all singing heartily "God Save the  King."  Xmas day was spent quietly, many  having  friends   for   dinner.  A Burns concert is to be held in the  church hereon Wednesday, 7th January. Rev. Dr. MacKinnon from Vancouver, will give his popular address  on the "Life and Times of Burns, the  Poet," which will be well illustrated  by song and recitation by Messrs.  Blair and Ilay.  Mrs. Wm. Coutts, Miss Bell and Mrs.  Reid have returned to "The Manse"  after spending Xmastide in Vancouver.  Miss Milne, of Falkirk, Scotland, is  spending Xmas with Miss Reid at the  homo  of  Mr.   and   M/rs.   Alex  Gil lis.  Quite a number of visitors from Vancouver a-jd Noav Westminster spent  Xmas Day and enjoyed Christmas  greetings among old friends.

For many years the raihvay has  passed this point, a ferry across the  river has been the only means of com-  municiation, until the past summer Avhen  the Canadian Northern line on the south  side was completed into Hope. Already  signs of aAvakening are in ' evidence.  And Avith three railways entering there,  it is quite within range of possibility  that the old toAvn of Cariboo days will  awaken from its long lethargy and take  its place in modern progress.  MISSION GIH -NEWS ITEMS  Chief Constable Clarkson reports bus-,  iness in his line A'ery quiet during the  Christmas festivities, there being only  one case, of drunkenness on tho blotter,  and 'that was an Indian from across  the river. This speaks well for the way  kiAv and order are maintained in Mission  City.  -   (From Frnser Valley Record)  A meeting of the Members of the  Bums Club was held in the Council  Chamber on Monday evening, the 22nd  inst., to decide how best to celebrate  tho anniversary of the poet's birthday.  On account of several other attraction that evening there was only a small  attendance and nothing-was decided but  that another meeting be called for  January 2nd, 1914, when it. is hoped  more members will attend and that  others in sympathy with the club Avill  enroll as members and ensure a participation in a real good Robbie's night.

Cayley, of Stowell  Rectory,   Sherborne,  England. ���������  The bride was given away by her brothers Mr. G. O. M. Fox and- Mr. B. H.  Fox acted as best man.  A few.intimate friends were entertained  at the Hotel Vancouver and later the newly married couple left for a trip to Seattle.  Miss Fox is a sister .of the Fox Bros.,  of the Kootenay Jam Co., and Avell  known in society circles in Mission  City.  Nothing more nas been heard of the  disappearance of Mr. D. McCaskill, and  it is generally conceded-that the Fraser  I river has claimed another victim.

I'm -a heathen because l can't hear the "sight of Lucy  Drake's husband!"  Maria's lips snapped together ominously. Her dark eyes flashed ��������� dangerously. From previous symptoms I  bad observed in this newly married  couple I knew that Maria was jealous.  Her next door neighbor was Lucy  Drake, who" had married Orville Beers  on the same day that Captain Fisb bad  led Maria .to the altar.' Indeed, there  Avas still some feeling in the matter of  the weddings, for it seemed that Lucy,  was to be Maria's bridesmaid and Or  viile was to be the best man, but they  bad slipped away to the church a half  hour before the time set for the captain's wedding, and, taking advantage  of the assembled guests and the decorated church, they had been married  by the bewildered minister and Avere  out in tiie vestry ready to greet Maria  and her prospective husband when they  arrived.

"I did see him���������seen him every day,"  stoutly asserted the captain. "You see,  he's sort of cuttin' into my Qshin' business, and I've made it my duty to keep  a watch on him and his doings and  keep count of how many fishes he  ketches and so. forth. So the other  day I got out my spyglass and looked  at Orville. He was way down the bay  in his boat, and I declare if he wasn't  eatin' a pie���������a hull pie! Yes ma'am,  Miss Telham. He took it from outer  a bag, took something off the top and  flung it overboard, and then he jest  waded right into that mince pie."  "How did you know it was mince?"  I queried with Quince Harbor inquisi*  tiveness.  "I smelled the cloves!" and the captain winked a blue eye at me.  When we had, enjoyed a little laugb  at his witticism the paptain leaned  over and whispered, "I've got evidence  of a deep laid scheme on Orville's partL  come down to the boathouse an' I'lr  show you."  I followed him willingly down the  front walk and across the road to the  boathouse on the beach." He opened  the door, and from within he brought  a clam basket in which was something hard and white and brittle and  round.  "What la It?" I asked.

At noon that day, I telephoned to  Margery. ���������  "Como up," I Bald, '/and bring the  keys to the Monmouth: avenue house.  I have some things to, tell you and���������  some things to ask you."  I met her at the station with" Lady,  Gray and ttie^trap. My plans for that  afternoon were comprehensive. They,  Included what I hoped to be the solution of tho Aunt Jane mystery. Also  they included a little drive through tho  park and. a���������well, ������ small tell about  that all I am going to te)U at the propeff  time.  To play propriety, Edith met us aflt  the house. It was atfll closed, and  even in the short time! t3iat had elapsed It smelled close and musty.  At the door into the drawing room I  stopped them.   ~ ,  "Now, this is going ita be a sort of  game," I explained. "It's a sort of  button, button, who's got' the button,  without the button. We are looking  for a. drawer, receptacle! - or - closet,  which shall contain, bunched'together,  and without regard to whether they  should be there or not, a small revolver, two military brushes and a. clothes  brush, two or. three soft frosoined  shirts, perhaps a half dozen cellars,  and a suit of underwear. Also a s.*mall  flat package about eights Inches lo'og  and three wide/'  "What in the world are! you talking  .about?" Edith, asked.,  "I am not talking,, I am theorizing,",  I explained.

For ten minutes there was no result.  At the end of that time I had finished  two rooms and, comm<raced on tat*  blue boudoir. And here; on the top  shelf of a three corneredi Empire cupboard, with glass doors, and spindle  legs, I found what I was .looking for.  Every article was there. I stuffed a  small package into my pocket and called the two girls. ,  "The lost is found,'* 1 stated calmly,  when we were *)\ together in tho  library.  "When did -you iose anything?"

He is not like himself.  The last  time 1  saw  blm  he aave mo a  Utile piece of paper with a number on It,  and he said they followed him everywhere  and were driving him crazy. Try to have  him see a doctor. And I left a bottle of  "complexion cream in the little closet over  my mantel, where I had hidden my hat  and shoes that I wore. Please destroy it  before your Aunt Letitla sees it  Goodby, my dear nlecel I suppose I am  growing frivolous In my old-age, but I  am going to have silk linings in my  clothes before I die.  '    YOUR LOVING AUNT JANE.  When Margery stopped reading there  was an amazed silence. Then we all  three burst into relieved, uncontrolled  mirth. The dear, little old lady, with  her new'independence and her sixty-  five-year-old, romantic, starved heart!  Then we opened the packet, which  was a sadder business, for it had represented Allan Fleming's last clutch at  his waning-public credit.  Edith ran to the telephone with the  news for Fred, and for the erst time  that, day. Margery and I were alone.  Sue was standing with one hand on  the library table. In tho ntuw she held  Aunt Jane s u-rcer, nair tremulous,  wholly tender. I put my hand over  hers on the table. - '  '.'Margery!1'-1 said. ' She did not stir.  .

"Yours!" she  replied softly, and I took her in my  arms.  Edith was still at the telephone.  "1   don't   know,"   she   was   saying.

'  Though this move may not have rc:  suited- from tlie agitation by Boards of  Trade along tlie river, certainly it comes  at a time when residents of the valley  are asking strenuously for tlie resumption of the run of tlie Heaver, and  latterly .the 1'ayslreak.' Chilliwack  Board of Trade made the first tangible  effort and received undorsation from the  Westminster Board.  , The Skeciia is almost a new boat and '  was built hut five years ago. She is a  sternwheeler, burns oil, .is about 135  feet long, Avith a 25-foot beam. . Her  speed is first rule, and she can easily  carry 200 passengers. She was first  run on the Skeena river and lately  opera led in Burrard Inlet, running to  .Indian   river.  Tho new- boat will sail from New-  Westminster pu M'oiulnys, Wednesdays  and Fridays, returning from Chilliwack  on Tuesdays/ Thursdays and Saturdays,  and lying hero over Sunday. On the  vun she will v.:all at all points along  the Fraser and her owners hope to -  handle much freight from all parts of  lhe valley.  . ^Captain Seymour, who is to be master  ���������of the Skeena,, has hud 25 years' experience in the river and. it is worth  uotiug that ho. and his partner, Mr.  Haggard, both understanding conditions'  in the valley, have sufficient confidence  in it to enter their boat in competition  with ..the electric line. Of Captain  Seymour's efficiency there is no question. He commanded the Beaver for  a. long time, and is-highly valued by  the C. P. R., on whose boats he had  been.' ,   . ���������  IS  HIGHLY APPRECIATED  (From   the Huntingdon  Star) '  .The public meeting stated in the last  issue of the Star did not come off until-  Monday evening hist, when a number of-  the citizens met in the immigration offices and discussed public matters, matters of import to the community.    Mr.  Mike Murphy was chairman, enough to  guarantee  that   tlie  meeting  would be  guided along the path  that  makes for  the   best   interest   of   Huntingdon  and  community.    Mr. W.  It.

This meeting will decide when the following meeting will be held, as it is the  intention-of the promoters of these, citizens'   meetings"to  hold  them  twice  a  month  on the first and third Monday  of, each month.

POSTAL LIBRARY FOR CANADA  (Cou-inucd  from Pago One)  maintain. Best results are had by reading at homo or in private. The Postal  Iiibray scheme does, not include public  rending rooms.' Instead , the delivery  and-collection of books through the mail  extends the library to every home,  school, office, and individual. "Ooing  to the,library" will hereafter be out of  date as the Postal Library will come to  you.  Q. Would  not the cost  of providing  the Postal  Library be prohibitive?  any number of books desired, provided  of course, his guarantee was sufficient.  Q. Would not the expense of suuli service be excessive?  ,���������A. The postal service is the best example of efficiency and economy found  in civilized countries. 'The low cost of  the clerical work- and of the transportation, collection and distribution by  the,Post Office has been a continuous  astoishmont. The Postal Library will  operate by mail. There will be no waste  of time in conversation. The' books  will go and come along with letters, papers and parcels and the expense of tlie  additional service will-be light.  Q. What   fees  are   contemplated   for  tho use of books?  GIVEN TICKET BACK HOME  A.

McMenemy, ^40  T. C- Coogan, SO   '  people. Again let us assume that for an  average of $1.00 per volume a suitable  collection of books can be purchased by  the Government. This is a larger supply and a higher cost than for any public library now in existence in Canada.  The amount therefore required to purchase all the books for the Postal Library would be less than $.10,000,000  That is a comparatively small appropriation for the Government. The Parliament at' its last session provided  $1.0,000,000 to assist the provinces in  Veterinary Education. The improvement of a single harbour often costs a  larger amount, while a modern battleship is estimated to cost around $15,-  000,000.00.  Q. Where would this large supply of  books be kept?  A. The Postal Library will operate  with every Post Oflice in the country  as a branch.' The books would be distributed over the Dominion according  to the population. A Post Office seizing 200 people would have a library of  200 books,and an office serving 10,000  people would have a library of 10,000  books, and so on. Toronto would have  a library of say 400,000 volumes, Winnipeg 150,000 volumes, Halifax 46,000 volumes', Vancouver 100,000 volume's, St.  John 42,000 Lethbridge 15,000, Dawson  City 9,000 and so on.  The libiaries in the larger cities  be quite'complete in themselves. The  Postmaster in a smaller office would  draw on a neighbouring larger office for  any book desired and winch his library  did not coutaiu. Thus the most remote  frontiersman in Canada would have the  . same unlimited reading privileges as,  those enjoyed by the wealthiest .resi-'  dent of tho metropolis.  Q. Would there not be a large expense for library buildings and equipment?  A. With the public reading room  eliminated it is believed that a large  percentage of the present post offices  could house the Postal Library without  requiring- additional room. Some additions would no doubt be required.  There will also be an expense for stacks,  printed forms, records, etc. Let us assume 50c. per volume as a sufficient  amount to cover all this,expense. Probably less than $5,000,000 would be required for these purposes.  Q. Is there not danger of great loss  by non-reutrn of books and by damage  while in the hands of the people?  Ai There will be the usual wear and  tear which must be provided for. Ordinary libraries require security before  lending books. The Postal Library  "would'do the same. Each book would  have a certain list value. Those desiring' to borrow books from the Postal  Library would first secure and file a  guarantee up to a certain amount by  some ratepayer, securing the safe return* of books and payment of fees.  This guarantee will protect tho library  against losses. Again since the people  own the Post Office they have pride in  its success and are interested in its security.  Q. In what manner will books be secured  from  the  Postal Library?  A. The method should be very simple.  When a book is desired a postal card  form .prepared for that purpose would  be filled up, stamped to the amount of  the required fee and dropped in the  mail just the same as any other mail  matter. In due time the book would be  delivered in the same manner as other  mail. The return of a book would be  as simply done.    A person might draw'  lioved a fee of 2c. would be sufficient  . for the use of ��������� a hook for seveu days,  j A charge of 5c. per day might be made  for overtime to encourage prompt re-,  turn of books. The fees could be paid  by attaching ordinary stamps.  Q. Need the Postal Library bo confined to the circulation of books?  A. No. Lantern slides, moving picture films, music^'records, and other appropriate devices for amusement and  instruction may be included and thereby provide pleasant occasions for homes  churches, .societies, schools, lodges and  the like. Such service would.add greatly to the enjoyment of life in rural  communities   and  on   the  frontier.  Again the Postal Library, will elevate  the profesion of librarian,to importance.  There is a rapidly 'increasing domand  for'expert library, service. Legislators,  editors, teachers, professional people,  public officials, more and more are requiring the -assistance in^ library , research. The Postal Library might provide,-this service for a fee of say 50c.  per hour for the time of the librarian.  Such expert service could probably be  provided in all the principal centres  and be made available to all the people.  JOSEPH  P.   TRACY7.  Lethbridge,  Alberta, .  December  20, 1013.  D.
