All  these things were present in full  measure at the concert presented  to an appreciative audience by  the students of Kleindale school,  under the direction of Mrs. Harper with the able hlep of Mrs.  Bell at the .piano on ^Monday  night, December 24.  Proud parents, excited children 'and ...interested people were  seated in the hall when the curtain; rose oh the school choir,  arranged on a beautifully decorated stage.

Peggy Sundquist then sang  "Beautiful Dreamer" and drew  a great round of applause.  Next we had a cleverly played  little dialogue "the Train to Loon  Town" which brought lots of .  laughter from the appreciative  crowd, as did the "Upsidedown  Drill" which followed.  Then little Winona Sundquist  twas seen sitting on a chair in the  centre of the stage sewing, while  in a voice which was truly amaz-  dng, she recited "The Little  Dressmaker" followed by Ben  Dubois and Derald Harris as  cowboys to sing "I've Got Spurs  That Jingle, Jangle, Jingle."  Before   the   intermission   the  girls of the school put oh a beau-  .. ,tifulpageant with the Canadian  provinces  and  sister  dominions  represented   and   showing  their  .loyalty to a figure of Brittanni,a. y  ::-'-Th��'next:itera was one of the  most beautiful tableux ever presented in this hall.   The curtain  rose on a group colorfully costumed to represent; the various  symbols of Christmas, this drew  an audible gasp from the audience twhich showed deep appreciation.  The school choir gave us a  ' spirited rendition of "Jingle  Bells", followed by Derald and  Bonnie Harris singing "Will You  Marry Me".. This brought down  the house. If you could have seen  the look on Derald's ;face when  he sang the last verse you'd  know why the1 song called,for an  encore.  A f.'ag. exercise bys the junior  -pupils was followed by a novel  . presentation by the seniors dress-  ;ed as old- timers who, with the  -aid  of sundry. kitchen  utensils,  gave    a    good ' imitation   of    a  Bark  Suffering multiple fractures in  his arm and a broken leg, when a  large piece of bark on a snag on  which he was working came loose  and pinned him to the ground,  Mr. William Forrest of Roberts  Creek is recuperating at home.  Collecting bark ahd firewood by  himself at the deserted girl guide  camp a short distance from Roberts Creek, Mr. Forrest faced a  nasty situation when he, finally  freed himself from the heavy  bark and found himself unable to  walk, and only able to crawl with  difficulty.  Working his way.slowly along  the ground, he reached the caretaker's cottage and, a taxi secured, he was immediately rushed  to the doctor at Gibson's Landing,  where the extent of his injuries  were determined.  rhythm band.}y X  Diano was the'.central  figure  in a charming scene representing ;  the "Rock of Ages" (while Peggy  Sundquist and Velnia Harris sang  the beautiful old hymn*.  Before the final curtain the  school choir sang "Merry Christmas" in a way that made you  feel they really meant tit.  The ceremony concluded with  the national' anthem.  Mr. Lloyd called for an expression of appreciation for the  work of Mrs. Harper, Mrs. Bell,  their helpers and the young actors and actresses to which the  audience gave a hearty response.  This concert showed that practise and work and the freely  given help of others can make a  school concert really enjoyable  for both the audience and the  staff.  ^ .

Powell River, B. C.  The north coast's Most Modern Department Store  SYNOPSIS: Speed Malone hardened gambler, and Ed Maitland, son of  seafaring New England family, were  partners in the Yukon gold rush of  '97. They met on the trip north in a  crowd that included Frnchy, the fish-  rrinau. Lucky Rose, the beautiful girl  who took a fancy, to Maitland; Fallon, leader of the miners, who resented Rose's interest in Maitland; Brent,  old-time prospector; ��� Garnet, who  gave Maitland and Speed his outfit  when he quit the trail, and Pete and  his drunken partner,-Owens, who was  drowned after a brawl. Pete turned  out to be a girl in disguise. Speed  killed a man at Skagway���a cheat  manager of a shell game���and  months after was r.rrested and put  in jail for his murder. He got out,  but while he waited for Lefty, who  offered to help him to get back the  mail   he   had   been   carrying   for   the  - Mounties   at  Bennett.     NOW  GO  ON  WITH  THE  STORY.  *   *   *   *  In another instant he freed the  halter line of the second bronco.  Mounting, he curbed its plunging  close to Pete's stirrup, while he  held the dynamite stick away  from the mare's head. The fuse  was burning close.  "Up the river canyon, Pete," he  said, "and don't pull in till I hail  . ye."  A quirt bit the bronco's flank;  its flying start matched the mare's  leap as Pete leaned close to the  black neck, holding the pinto's  head and riding both horses as  one. They flashed through the  chequered street lights and vanished in a drumming of hooves.  Speed checked his own rearing  mount,' wheeled it sidelong on its  hind legs, to block any threat of  pursuit. Then, with a measured  glance at the crowd, he tossed  the spluttering explosive down  the centre of the street into trampled vacant enpw. :  Almost as it struck; the camp  was rocked by a thundering detonation. The bronco gave a bound  like a stag's and tore after its  team mate, stung to a soaring gallop by the rocketing ��� blasts of  Speed's gun on either side,  1 '  ���I*       *r    ��� 1"       V  Rusty was shifting nervously.  His nose, searching the inshore  shadows, had a more constant direction. It kept pointing downstream. Rusty was watching and  scenting along the bank for some  remembered place which old habit  had printed deep in his dog memory.  "By the Great Dog Star!" Maitland exclaimed. "The dog's your  map."  "It's what I'm bankin' on,"  Speed said. "Dogs get attached to  places. The pull of a hangout  they're'used to lasts longer than  their fear of a man they don't like.  Specially Siwash dogs. We could  ijnaybe have landed anywhere a-  round the Stewart and followed  Rusty to Dalton's camp by his own  route."  - Pete had fallen asleep with her  head on the meal sack. She had  seemed to feel a peculiar uneasiness about the outcome of their  journey, which deepened and darkened Maitland's sense of Dalton's  mystery.  The mouth of the creek which  the dog led them to choose was so  screened with brush that in the  dark they might easily have passed it unnoticed.  Speed hitched a line from the  prow of the boat to the malamute  and allowed it to run along the  shore. Delighted to be afoot again,  Rusty started upstream, drawing  the boat with him. AH they had  to do was use an oar occasionally*  to clear a rock or shoal.  The dog had come to a bend in  the creek.    The canyon* was nar-  were   reaching   the  limit   of   the  boat's- draught.  They now looked around for a  covered mooring place.  With strange providence, it was  Rusty again who found the place  to cache the boat. He. halted at  the foot of a mountain ravine,  down which a thick growth of  brush fell into the creek. Between  the outer fringe of vegetation and  the bank, a concealed tunnel flowed under the brush. The space  would have been large enough for  two canoes, and it neatly harbored  their boat when they had unmast-  ed it.  This discovery did not look like  accident. The place appeared to  have been used before. It was possible that . they were picking up  a hidden trail, which others had  searched for and puzzled over  through a whole winter. Their  interest in what they were about  to do was taking on a tense precision.  "I've said the magic was simple," observed Speed. "Now we're  goin' to see whether it's true.''  The dog scrambled up the cleft  of the ravine under tangled brush.  Their range of view was painfully  restricted, and they knew how  invisible Dalton's trail could be.  At the head of the ravine they  emerged on a blind, steep-walled  gulch.  Here Rusty stopped and looked  at them expectantly as if it were  now their move.  "Doggone," Speed muttered, and  frowned at the blasted pine which  Rusty seenied to v,hayey ,regarded���  with a little more intention than  the stone. The dead tree spread  its limbs close to the cliff one of  the high branches almost touched  the rock face.  Uncoiling a rope from his belt,  Speed made a careful throw-at  the pine limb���and tightening the  rope on it securely, hauled himself up the trunk. He climbed until he reached the limb that touched the wall, crawled out on it to  the end, and dropped on a ledge;  There he gave a shout of discovery.  TO BE CONTINUED  Serving ...
