A Word of Welcome  Today, Bella Coola offers a  hearty welcome to all visitors  ���������and .we. trust that the occasion  may result in many people carrying away a more thorough knowledge and higher appreciation of  all that our beautiful valley Taas  ' to offer.  The 24th May has always been  kept in Bella Coola as the' day of  thve year, when no' matter what  country we were born in or what  our native language may be, we  feel proud to .gather together as  fellow citizens of the greatest  empire that the world has ever  known.  Empire Day  BY SPHINX  ooooo  Let us bear in mind, while we  celebrate this day, that we are  taking part in a great Imperial  movement, first instituted in  honor of the birth of the noblest  queen that ever graced a throne.  Let us take pride in our British  citizenship, which affords us  liberty and security in thehigfe-  est-sense.and rejoice accordingly.  Two Irishmen; meeting one  day, were discussing local news.  ' 'Do you know Jim Skelly'.?."  asked Pat.  "Faith" said Mike, "an* I do."  "Well," said Pat, '/he has had  his appendix taken away from  him."  "Ye don't say so?" said Mike.  "Well, it serves him right. He  should have had it in his wife's  name."  On the twenty-fourth May,  British citizens throughout the  world, meet to celebrate the existence of the greatest empire,  that this, or any other,age has  seen.  This festival was originally instituted to mark the birthday of  Queen Victoria, but has since  taken on a wider significance.  Various devices are in use by,  which the day is made notable in  different localities. One of the  most novel of these is the scheme  originated by the Daily Mail, the  well-known London paper, by  which a chain of bonfires is to be  lighted at a large number of  points throughout the empire on  this date.  Here in Bella Coola, we mark  the occasion by holding our annual sports.  Throughout the empire, where-  ever British troops are quartered,  ceremonial parades are held, the  day being otherwise observed, as  a holiday.  In India, the mingling of native  troops'in their picturesque uniforms with the British forces,  affords a very striking picture.  In South Africa, the natives  flock in from outside points to  the parade ground and form a  motley and admiring audrience.  All of these incidents, in their  varying ways, serve to remind  us that we are all a part of one  homogeneous whole; each and  everyone of us should therefore  see to it, that he or she does his  -part to maintain the magnificent  heritage that is ours today.  There .are many ways of showing patriotism, but one of the  best is the fulfilling of the duties  of a British citizen to the best  of one's power.  Apart from the national aspect  of the day the occasion has also  its personal note. Old friends  take the opportunity of renewing  past acquaintanceship and of recalling old times. Lonely individuals take the chance of mixing  with their fellows and of storing  up memories of a good -time to!  take back with them to the wilds.  Wherever we may be and however we may spend it,' the keynote should be one of happiness  and of determination to maintain  to the full the integrity of the  Empire.  BELLA COOLA  BY ANON.  Now would I picture to you, using care,  A. northern valley, mountain-girt and fair;  A gem of Nature on Columbia's coast,  Of whom her residents may proudly boast;  To pride of place she justly may lay claim,  And Bella Coola, is the valley's name.  "Follow a fjord, the peer of Norway's pride,  Until you come where river meets with tide;  Already, far from wild Pacific's swell,  Is reached but now/ the vale of which I tell;  Then,, safe ashore, your course still eastward hold,  And as you journey, beauties new unfold.  On either hand are mountains, capped with snow,  While verdant forests clad the'slopes below:  Among the higher peaks the glacier gleams,  And silver threads denote the tumbling streams:  There, through the bottom lands, the river winds,  Bearing the silt, the glacier slowly grinds.  The river banks with forest growth are clad,  A tangled mass of colors, running mad;    .  And here, a giant spruce may stand alone,  While there, a gnarled old cotton wood has grown;  Majestic cedars, these, and many a kind  Too numerous to mention, there you'll find.  And here and there, if you will closely scan,  Are signs that show the handiwork of man:  The hard won clearing, fruit of settler's toil,  There stands his home and there he tills the soil;  And then comes his reward, for he can grow  The.finest crops that Nature can bestow.-  And faring on, you further may.descry  Fresh views, that cannot fail to charm the eye;  A galaxy of beauties wide in range,  For ever varying, as the Season's change:  ;Yet, since you see but poorly through my eyes,  Go, see them for yourself, I would advise.   .  Saturday,  May 241 /j,    jj  WHY YOU SWING YOUR ARMS  A Scotchman, wishing to know  his fate at once, telegraphed a  proposal of marriage to the lady  of his choice. Aft3r spending  the entire day at the telegraph  office he was finally rewarded  late in the evening by an affirmative answer.  "If I were you," suggested the  operator when he delivered the  message, "I'd think twice before I'd marry a girl that kept  me waiting all day for my answer. ''  "Na, na," retorted the Scot.  "The lass who waits for the night  rates is the lass for me."  If you watch people walk you  will notethat nearly .-all of them  move their arms.' If they walk  slowly the movement of their  arms is scarcely perceptible; if  they walk rapidly their arms  generally swing vigorously.  Most people believe.this.swing-  ing of the arms as they walk is  merely a natural swaying motion  caused by the movement of the  body, just as the tassel of an  umbrella will swing when one is  walking with it, but this is by no  means the reason. The swinging of the arms is natural enough,  but the nature of _it dates away  back to those unknown days when  man was a quadruped.  Of course when man was a  four-footed animal he walked  with his "arms" as well as his  legs, and even today, after the  thousands   upon   thousands   of  generations that have passed  since he assumed an upright  position, every time he takes a  step his arm moves a trifle, involuntarily, as though desirous  of taking in its turn, just as it  did when.man, then four-footed,-  pranced up and down the earth.  Many people can move their  ears a trifle, many can move their  scalps, and their is an abundance  of hair scattered about our arms  and legs, now useless, but still  the remnants of the abundant  coating of hair that once kept  our anthropoid ancestors warm.  By keeping our minds upon it,  we can hold our arms nearly  motionless when walking, but let  us hurry along, thinking of something else and our arms still  swing, proclaiming our descent  from ancestors who walked on  four limbs that kept time together  Are You Interested  In Watches and  I  '   sy  High-grade we are u,e \������m  manufacturers 0f  rr\Y/CT T DV ^ STERLING SILVER.  ������, W ILL.L.K I    r     WARE in Canada  Then write for our Hlu.lratcd Catalog      We Carry all HllCS of quality Sllvy  which will be ..enl free to your addre������      ^  Jal,}eware   an(j   (^ ^  well as leather Goods, Brass  IF YOU HAVE TO BUY A  WEDDING PRESENT  CONSULT OUR CATALOG  Goads and Rich Cut Glass.
