Whether, it be the newly landed native  or the oldtimer, it is the same.  The heart craves for the old  land, for the old friends, for the  old associations and the old customs.  Such a time is New Year's  Day, that day celebrated by  Scotchmen all the world oyer.  It is a day when the sordid money  making desires fall from the race  when Scotchmen and Scotchwomen become imbued with the  milk of human kindness, and  when in every town and hamlet  is to be found the, hearty handclasp and the equally hearty wish  of "A guid New Year."  Those who are six thousand  miles from the old homestead try  to keep the day with socials and  dances, but it lacks the enthusiasm of the old country. Tbey  are like strangers in" a strange  land, and their spirits seem easily  depressed. But what a difference at home. There is no stilted New Year in Scotland; all is  warm hearted and kindly.  Friends meet friends, greetings  are sent across the seas to old acquaintances, and [ when the various families sit down' to enjoy  the good things, whether they be  rich or poor/all are happy, and  each and all remember the friends  and acquaintences, with thein in  spirit, though apart and divided  from the old country by thousands of miles.  Imagine ourselves in Scotland  on the last day of tbe year. The  time is morning, and in various  towns are to be found tiny tots  out on a "cake bunt." This is a  custom which goes back for ages.  Children visit all the shops in  town, and each receive their  hogmanay "cakes" in the shape  of apples, oranges, cakes and  other thiugs dear to the children's hearts. "Begging," you  say. Oh, no; not that. Rich  and poor seek cakes; thev are not  beggars and their parents might  be able to buy up the shopkeepers  who give the cakes. It is custom; aye, and an old one.  In the meantime the busy  housewife has been doing her  shopping. Current loaves, shortbread, whiskey or temperance  drinks, as inclination decides, are  bought and stored away. Houses are cleaned till they are spotless, and after .that stage are  cleaned once more. New curtains  grace the windows, and it is  night before the tired matrons  are satisfied with their labors.  The' clang of the factory bell or  the shrill sound of its whistle  send out excited groups of lads  and lassies, who scurry home to  don their Sunday clothes, for it  is "Auld Year's Nicht." when  everyone must be braw. The  streets are gradually becoming  brisker. Crowds begin to promenade the principal thoroughfares;  everywhere is heard laughing  i and chaffing. Toy trumpets rack  ets and drums -*dd to the din.  Any other night such uproar  would mean a compulsory visit  to the magistrate, but this is  "Auld Year's Nicht," and policemen are blind and deaf to everything- except actual crime, aud  there is none of that.  As night approaches the crowds  i>ecome more dense, till, when  but a few minutes arc loft nf the  old year, the rally takes place  round, the city or town hall, or,  as in Edinburgh, at the old Tron  Kirk, the clock of -whicli has  looked 'down upon many such  scenes. Nearer and nearer creep  the hands of the clock. Now it  wants but 6ve minutes of midnight. But surelv the hands are  moving very slowly, oi .is it but  the impatience of the crowd?  Nearer the big hand creeps���  watch it closely. Two minutes,  one minute, theu boom! goes tbe  first stroke of the midnight hour.  with a warmer heart than is provided to him by regulations.  While we are retailing this side  light our party has reached its  destination. A loud bang at the  door brings out the tenant, fully  dressed. * Happy New Year,  Tarn," '-'Same' toe yersels." is  the smiling reply. Then, "Come  awa in." The party does so,- and  the laughing wife repeats the  husband's salutation. It is a  great honor to be "first fit," and  equally unlucky to come empty  handed. But our friends have  thc bottle, and the males have a  glass all round, flavored by the  good wife's shortbread, while the  children, wakened from sleep, si$  np in bed interested little spectators of the midnight jolity.  Another drink, tbis time the tenant's bottle, and off the party  goes to carry out the "first fitting" program.  As 2   o'clock   approaches   the  hearts are sad, and the old eyes  fill, and away in far-off. Canada  Tam forgets that his mother and  father are hungering for a letter.  He does not mean to be unkind;  he is merely "thochtless," but, his  want of thought is breaking two  old hearts. Every day an old  man looks to the "postic" for a  letter which cometh not.  -"���"-C^C  FAMOUS PEOPLE  DY FANNIE M l.OTHROT5     <��  WOSZ ffiOKlM  Canada's Favorite Comedienne.  One of the leading comediennes of the American stage to-day, is May Irwin,  a daughter of Canada. In these days of Ibsen plays with their dull dreary pessimism; of problem plays portraying the morbid pathology of the emotions; of  society plays with their whipped cream of forced epigram on the pulpy base of  a thin plot; and of melodrama that puta a dime novel into the dress-suit of respectability, it is a relief to turn to something that gives, us a hearty wholesome  faugh and leaves no bad flavor in the mouth, no later regret. Laughter is one  of the safety valves of civilization, it is a needed vent in an age of strenuous living; and a genuine apostle of laughter is May Irwin.  Her power is her personality, her naturalness,.her spontaneity; her bubbling  contagious good spirits establishing a telepathic sympathy with her audience  which creates a continuous ripple ot fun and laughter that defies analysis.  The daughter of Robert E. Campbell, Miss Irwin acknowledges tliat she was  born in 1862���"tho' she doesn't look it" of course���in' Whitby, Ont., where she  spent her early girlhood. At the age of eight she was a soprano in the church choir  of her native village and sang at every opportunity and with the slightest provocation, as naturally as a bird sings,���without a Marches: training. At thirteen  ---���-���- ��� ��� uer sister Flora the duty of. i  . money-��  the death'of her father threw upon her and f      .  making, and they made their debut as singers in Buffalo, *\'.Y. They were billed  as the "Irwin Sisters," unknown to them, and accepted the name. They sang  "Sweet Genevieve" for their first song;. Flora fainted after it was over but May  valiently faced the audience for an encore ,wiili the coolness of a veteran.  Engagements in other cities followed quickly on ths western circuit, and  tBeir third season found them at Tony Pastor's in New York at eighty dollars  a week. Seven years of this engagement where improvising was often necessary  and the roles ranged from a babe in arms to a grandmother, gave Miss Irwin a  confidence that has never forsaken lur, despite iior statement tliat she cannot  take her initial cue at any performance witi:o::t a little qualm of uncertainty  and fearjof the audience. Augustin Daly who had a keen cye for new talent,  gave her an excellent post-graduate course of four years in his theatre, which  was a splendid training school, and prepared her for her lutcr successes. At *l-  age of sixteen she married Frederick W. Keller who died cifrht yira later leav  her with two sons���her loving comrades ani Ilu pride of h.T lu,:.

Xmas Tree  December 29tb, 1910, will long  be remembered by the scholars of  this school as a day of fun and  enjoyment. Kind friends contributed most liberally towards  the treat and the tree was well  stocked with beautiful and valuable gifts, and when^lighted up  presented a splendid appearance  with its  glittering   decorations.  The children  and   their  adult  friends  assembled at  the hall at  7 p. m., and  the former soon settled  down     to    various   games.  Speculation was rife as to whether Santa Clause would be able to  reach Greenwood,  owing  tothe  deep snow,   but he yery   kindly  despatched a telegram  from the  North Pole when he started.   All  seems to   have gone well  with  him until he reached Eholt, from  whence he sent another message  to say he had lost some of his  reindeer, and would be somewhat  late, as he would have to complete  his   journey by hand-car.  However,  he arrived before the  company expected him, complaining a bit of the severe cold.    He  shook hands   with many of the  children   and   distributed    gifts  from the   tree.    All   seemed to  have a present to receive at his  hands,   including   the   teachers  and the vicar and his wife.  Santa Claus himself was not  forgotten; for Evelyn Tye handed him something very especial,  which   he   graciously   accepted.  The vicar thanked him lor  coming and called for three  cheers. There certainly was no  mistake about the heartiness of  the demonstration. After this  crackers were pulled,- refreshments handed round and some  more good games Indulged in,  and at 9:30 a yerseof "God Save  the King" was sung, and the  children dispersed to talk over  the fun for many a day. They  wish to thank all their kind  friends for the treat, which they  siheerely hope may be repeated  another Christmas.  CARD OF THANKS  The   Sisters   at   the   hospital  wish to thank Rev. J.

At the  ing  and from thousands of throats  goes out a cheer, another, and  another. Someone strikes up the  only tune known to tradition, and  from a thousand or more voices  Comes the refrain:  "A guid New Year tae aue and a'  And mony may ye see;  And during a' the years tae come  Still happy may ye be."  In ten minutes the crowd has  melted away. To bed? Oh, no.  Follow that group of young fellows. They are walking as if  with a purpose in view. Up one  street, down another, till suddenly a bullseye lantern is flashed on  them and a policeman scans the  group. "Happy New Year, sergeant," shouts one of the group.  ���'Same to you," answers back the  guardian of the law and order as  he starts to move away. "Na,  na, sairgent; nane o' that. Take  a drink."  It is not in the police rules, but  what of that? It is New Years  morning, and the hardest hearted  chief constable must see nothing  at this time. So the sergeant  has his drink, and goes his way  streets seem also to be infected  with the New Year's festivities  and, to onr party's amazement,  the sidewalks start to reel. It is  now time for home, and as they  zig-zag along, Sandy's legs rebel,  and he sits down suddenly. Another bullseye flash and the sergeant looms into sight. 'He  laughs as he sees Sandy has collapsed. "Come ou, Safldy; I'll  see ye hame'." He does so, and  Sandy sleeps the sleep of the just  after his labors,  On New Year's Day the streets  are crowded. Handshaking and  good wishes are seen and heard  at every corner. Dull care finds  no adherents on New Year's Day.  Some go off to the city pantomimes, others to see foot races,  while a third section make a  round of visits to friends. So the  day passes all too quickly. But  in a house an aged man and woman sit musing1.  "Twa years nco- since Tam  went tae Canada.

These besides careful  handling ot our city's finances  will be among the many things  for our consideration. So far as  lies in our power our efforts will  be to promote the good and welfare of the many, ;md a square  deal for everybody. yYTY^" ���'������-.-  FRED B. HOLMES,  For Mayor.  Mr. McBride's Forecast.  Premier McBride's forecast of  the amount of capital to be expended iu this province during  the next four years is striking  indeed, lt becomes still more  impressive when considered in  connection witb two outstanding facts.  All the expenditure is of a productive nature. The railways to  be constructed will when completed employ an armv of tncti in  their operation and mi in ten a nco,  aud will distribute yearly large  sums of money in pavment of  wages and lor supplies.  Railways and provincial highways alike will bring into existence industries of all sorts,  which for their success require  only the transportation facilities  now to b<* provided.  An immense aggregate amount,  of capita! and energy will, as a  result of the construction of  transportation facilities, be applied to the development of natural resources in this province.  New mines will be worked, new  timber areas opened up, new  agriculture aren.s settled, new  manufactures established. New  towns and cities will spring up  and existing towns and cities will  expand.  Although Mr. McBride does  not so much as hint at it, the  fact remains that all this expenditure is thc direct result of the  work he has done for the province in establishing stable government, and in framing and  carrying out a large and constructive policy of advancement.  But for the part Mr. McBride has  played in the history of this  province there would* be a different story to tell today.  Subscribe for the B. C. Tiinea.  &  Sale of Lots in Vancouver.

Finally they consented to sign a written document releasing him from all obligations for Christmas presents,  and he observed the holidav by  having his internal superfluity  surgically eliminated, the estimated cost of the holiday gifts  exceeding the fee of the operation.  In a recent lecture at Washington Dr. Wiley said he believed  that the earth was slowly cooling  an<f that the people of the future  must freeze. There is no immediate cause for alarm as the doctor assures us that the frigid finale is not likely to transpire for a  million years. However, there  is an economic question involved,  as the chilling' process will mean  an increased appropriation for  coal.  . The Iledley Mining Co. has  contracted with, the Priucton Coal  Co. for ten thousand tons of coal.  During the winter the mines  adjacent to Stewart will employ  Z50 men.  From   Hosraere  250 tons  each j  of coal and   coke   are being ship  ped daily.  A night school has been opened  at Ladysmith to teach thc coal  miners.  The Great Northern has put  on two additional ore trains between Phoenix and Grand Forks.  There are 70 men working at  the Lone Pine Surprise mine at  Republic.  The Sullivan mine in East  Kootenay is shipping 100 tons of  ore to the Trail smelter.  Are You  Like This?  Tired all the time, not much  good for anything, hardly able to  drag around, just all run down.  If you are, we guarantee our VI-  NOL will help you. It has helped  many people around here who were  in this condition.  Now look here, just try one bottle of VINOL, and if you are not  satisfied that it did you good, come  back and get your money. It will  be returned without question. That  is a fair proposition and shows our  faith in VINOL, and that we do  not want your money unless you receive benefit.  We know what we are talking  about because we have sold VINOL for years, and have seen how  much good it has done among our  customers.

Perhaps he was  referring to the Hdmixture of evil  and good in lhe life of the country. Hut a canny Scot says that  in common parlance the better  place   is   usually mentioned  first.  What should and what should  not go into the columns of a  newspaper is sometimes a pretty  hard matter for even a veieran  editor to decide, and yet the man  who has spent his entire life in a  printing office ought to he a better judge than the man who bas  uo knowledge of the business  whatever.  Addressing the Boy Scou*s at  Toronto Earl Grev deplored the  lack of manners displayed' by  many ot the pupils of the schools  throughout the Dominion who  appear to consider civility an  evidence of servility. The Governor-Generals impression has  probably been formed from observations in Ottawa where evil  communications corrupt good  manners.  While returns are not yet complete it is pstinittted at the department of immigration that the  total arrivals in Canada for the  year 1910 have been approximately 350,000. of whom 150,000  came from the United States,  lt is estimated that the immigration during the next twelve  months will touch the half million mark.  Impecunious young men who  terrify their girl friends with  fairy stories about tbe danger of  eating ice cream, are not supported by the results of thc official analysis made at Ottawa.  Out of 125 samples 77 were found  to be absolutely pure, and the  rest were so close to the required  standard that they could be eaten  The'millenium of   peace   and  good will is not yet in sight. The  year 1911 opens under conditions  that must cause  the advocates of  universal   peace   much   concern.  Insurrections in Mexico and Honduras;   threats  of   revolution    in  Spain;  the fate of   the   new   Republic of Portugal  in   doubl; discontent in   Greece;   Korea  sullen  and discontented; China   and Japan   at   daggers'  points;  Britain  ���Mid Germany   watchful   and suspicious; the   United   States  and  Japan   sparring   for   wiud; Rus-  dormant but   preparing; Turkey  full of  plots aud   assassinations;  Austria only awaiting  the death  of the aged   Emperor;   and   riots  and strikes  disturbing  the peace  of France.

Jl  BanditS  Killed. lto the starting of forest   fires  by  Barricaded in their lair in a  house in the very heart of London's slums, seven anarcliists defied the police, the liro department and three companies of Scots  guards, all headed bv Home Secretary Churchill, until the house  was set on fire bv the shots of  machine guns and the defenders  were burned to di-Jith. The fisjht  began when lh<v police, seeking  two numbers <.!" the notorious  ' Houndsdileh" anarchist transr,  disc~>vered two of them in the  house. These m?n began the  battle bv lirinir down on   the un-  locomotives,   and   the    proposed  legislation on the question.  The Comtnision declares that it  has had investigations made bv  competent men and finds that  thirtv per cent of all forest fires  have been started by locomotives,  and that they have caused enormous loss. The legislation will  hold railways responsible for  damage caused by tires started by  locomotives unless it can be  shown that all reasonableprecaut-  ions have been taken to prevent  such fires.  The precautions will include the  armed officers.    Oth.r police were  t,,e best. *,ossib,e  spark-arresting  were called and the. Sets guards I devices,   efficicient fire   fighting  staffs to check   fires   which   have  been started,   and   the companies  were brought in. The defenders  still resisted. Others, evidently  belonging to the gang, and living  in the house, joined in the battle.  The attacking party at last  faced several desperate men,  heavily armed and firing with  reckless abandon into the ranks  of the attackers and the crowd of  spectators gathered by the sight  and sounds of the battle in the  streets.  After the fire the anarchists retreated to the roof, where-ihev  continued to pour shot from rifles  aud revolvers into the police until the flames ale away the supporting walls and the roof on  which they stood, fell with a  crash. All the men are believed  to have been thrown into tin* fire  and incinerated.  will have to show that there has  been no negligence on the part of  their employees iu allowing fires  to start or spread.
