EGMONT  Imer   Beamish,   Correspondent  t  ANOTHER real estate deal was  recently completed in Egmont  when Mrs. Matilda Shaw (better known as Mrs. Watling) sold  her homesite , near the Sechelt  Narrows. The purchasers are  moving in soon.

They report a feeling  of genuine sympathy for those  who must live amidst that mad  turmoil of rushing people, noise  and glaring lights.   ,  PURCHASE of four Bangor  class minesweepers, announced Monday by Carl Halterman,  vice-president of the Union  Steamships Company Limited,  brings the Union coastal fleet to  20 vessels.  The , minesweepers, which  were purchased from the War  Assets Corporation at a cost of  $20,000 each, will be converted  into passenger vessels for the  local runs at an expenditure involving at least $800,000.  The vessels purchased are 180  feet long, with 26-foot beam and  a speed of 16 knots an hour. All  vessels were built in B.C.���the  "Miramichi" and the "Belle-  chasse" at the Burrard Drydock  yards, the "Chignecto" also at a  Vancouver shipyard, and the  "Courtenay" at Prince Rupert.  Plans are now being developed for their use in the Union  Steamships' expanding program  of service inaugurated after the  cessation of war. When these  are completed tenders will be  called from local shipyards.  "The conversion work will  easily involve an expenditure  of $800,000," said Mr. Halterman. "This work will be given  to local shipyards and can pro-  yide work for hundreds of men  ^diter^J^^  depehdirig, of course, on avail-  lew Service  City Firm  Here is Yvonne North, captain of Powell  River's  championship  girl's  fastball  team,  abiiffy^of' conversion materials   receiving first prize from Sam Cromie^ vice-president of  and the attitude of labor." the Vancouver .Sun.   The Papertown girls captured the  "The time when we can put   championship when they defeated Sunset Memorial girls  these ships into service to replace and augment our local  service will also depend upon  these two vital factors."  Mr. Halterman said that conversion plans would call for the  accommodation of 500 day passengers.  Earlier in the year the Union  Steamships bought four 'Castle'  class corvettes for service on the  northern runs. Conversion  work on these, totalling over  $1,000,000, is now being done at  local shipyards but owing to the  factors mentioned by Mr. Halterman the work has not been  complete on schedule.  BOOKLET RECALLS  EARLY   HISTORY  OF GIBSONS  By LES PETERSON  GIBSONS LANDING ��� While  the  city  of Vancouver  celebrated its Diamond Jubilee with  fanfare and peroration, the sixtieth  anniversary of this little  community stole quietly by.    It  did not go entirely unrecorded,  however.   During , the  summer  the Rev. Frank Bushfield (ret.)  undertook   to   edit   a   booklet,  copies of which could be kept  as souvenirs, of Gibsons Landing.    The booklet, just off the  press, is called the Gibsons Mirror.    It is on sale at all stores  here.    Sponsored  by  all  businessmen of the  community,  it  traces changes and progress that  have taken place in this district  throughout the past sixty years.  Highlight of the publication is  an outline of the life of Lieut.  George Gibson, founder of the  settlement that bears his name.  10-6 in the finals.   (Cut courtesy Vancouver Sun)  D. DONALDSON  IS WINNER OF  GARDEN  CONTEST  OUR MOTTO is to beautify  Gibson Landing. After visiting the gardens three times we  have decided that the best garden is Mr. D. Donaldson's, for  having the best layout and for  being the cleanest.  Mrs. D. MacKay, second, for  quality as a garden, especially  for Jier roses. It is clean and  tidy.  Mr. D. MacFarlane, third.  Very good as a garden.  Mrs. Mettam should be complimented on her little garden.  It always looks clean and bright.  Mrs. Faulkes has the makings  of a good garden.  Mrs. B. Cator should also be  complimented.  Mr. W. McGowan had a very  good vegetable garden.  Mrs. McGivern had a very  good vegetable garden, but being out of the village was not  eligible.  This information contributed  by Mrs. E. Nestman, is the decision of the judges of the garden competition for this season.  Proposed Club  Devoted to Interests  Of Junior Seamen  GIBSONS LANDING���Any boy  wishing to learn junior seamanship may enrol in a proposed club devoted to this skill  at Long's Drug Store. John  Bunyan, who took training in  the Sea Caedts in Vancouver,  and later spent four years in%  the Royal Canadian Navy during the recent war, is sponsor  of the club and will do most of  the instructing. Mr. Bunyan  hopes also to arrange specialized instruction from local sea  officers. The club should prove  useful to all boys who may find  occasion later to spend time on *  boats in any capacity.   * *    *  A new three-ton Maple Leaf  truck has been allotted to this  district  by  the  Department  of  Public Works for use on roads.  * *    *  Meetings of the women's auxiliary to the Canadian Legion  will recommence on the third  Friday in September, the 20th.  PROPOSAL of Gulf Fuels and  Barge Company to offer a  portable welding service to  operators in the Howe Sound-  Sechelt area is announced in  this issue of the Coast News.  No transportation charge is to  be made on equipment to the  wharves in the area, if a minimum of eight hours' work is  offered. Only a high-class operator will be supplied.  Equipment may be rented and  straight city prices are charged,  making possible savings . in  freight, haulage and valuable  time.  Inquiries from district operators will be a deciding factor  in establishing this service and  may be addressed to Roy Walker, 101 West 1st Ave., Vancouver, B. C, Phone number is  Fairview 7433.  Squamish  Elks Hold  Basket Picnic  THE SQUAMISH branch of the  B.P.O.E. held its basket picnic  on Sunday, Sept. 1, at Judd's  Slough. This was the first picnic since before the war and we  were pleased to see so many  turn out, over one hundred people attended. The day before it  looked like the weatherman  wasn't going to be so good to us  but guess he changed his mind  as Sunday dawned clear and  bright.  The children had a big day  racing and wading, topped off  with oranges and all the pop-  sickles they could eat. A number of enthusiastic games of  barnyard golf were enjoyed by  the men.  Mr. J. H. Warman, proprietor  of the Egmont Trading Post, has  sold his store to Mr. R. R. Gill.  The buyer will take over September 8.  Otto Bangerter plans to operate a service station at his home  on the Sechelt Highway three  miles out of Gibsons.  ANOTHER new structure 'is  rapidly nearing completion in  down-town Gibsons. Jim Anderson, of Gibsons Shoe Renew,  is erecting the building on the  excavated portion of his lot, below his temporary shop. When  completed, he will use one half  of the duplex as a shoe store  and shop, and the other half  will be operated ��as a 5c to $1.00  store. B6th businesses will be  new to the community.  HARDY ISLAND  by  Margery  Thomas  Correspondent  DURING the past week Chris  Sandvold spent a couple of  days visiting friends in Powell  River. On his return, he was  accompanied by his friend Hans  Rud, who enjoyed a few days'  visit  here   before  returning  to  Powell River. '  ���*     *    *    *  Mr. Wm. J. Thomas is returning to his home in Vancouver  after spending a week with his  nephew, Harry B. Thomas. Mr.  Thomas has been enjoying some  excellent Coho fishing, and  although in his eighty-first year,  this* veteran sports fisherman is  able to land the big ones as expertly as the young fellows.

South American  Bidding High  For Newsprint  SOUTH American publishers are  offering as high as $300 a ton  for newsprint, The Financial  Post reports, or about,four times  the official United States price.  This unprecedented situation  arises from two simple facts:  U.S. consumption is now averaging /more than 28 per cent  higher than last year (24 per *  cent more than pre-war), while  U. S. production is up only five  per cent over 1945 (down 20  per cent from 1939) and Scandinavian countries have yet to  export a ton of newsprint to the  U. S. this year. Pre-war they  could be counted on to supply  some 300,000 tons annually to  the U.S.  A year after the end of a great  war in which it failed to produce a martial hit, Tin Pan  Alley comes through with one  named "Surrender", which turns  out to be about love.

Orillia Minister  To Enforce Law  THE TOWN of Orillia takes its  place at' the side of its bigger  sister, cosmopolitan Montreal, in  a concerted move to make the  female of the species wear more  clothes. An Orillia minister, a  man of stern views on the overexposure of the female form, is  leading the crusade to have the  girls in his town dress properly.  His sense of propriety causes  him to call upon the town authorities to enforce a 50-year-  old bylaw which requires- that  all Orillia citizens be "covered  from knees ,to neck.5  ERIC INGLIS  GENERAL  TRUCKING  and FUEL  Gibson's Landing  Groceries  Meats  Fruit  Vegetables  WHEN AT THE DOCK  REPLENISH YOUR  BURN IT LIGHTLY  He told me he wanted a burnt-  sugar cake,  A cake like the ones his mother  could make.,  I think I could make one, at  least I could learn,  But who in the world has got  sugar to bum?

Some of the older ones were  not so eager to return, realizing  that their day-long liberty now  would be curtailed and that  homework loomed large on the  horizon. *  The eight and ten-year-olds  danced along, looking forward  to meeting old classmates and  sizing up the new teachers.  But it was in the littlest ones  ���the new pupils���that I was  most interested. One little boy  insisted on taking his dog along.  "Spot wants to go to school,  too," he said, sturdily, when his  older sister tried to send the  dog back home.  A tiny girl dragged on her  mother's hand. "I don't want  to go!"  It is a big day in the lives of:  our children when they start  school. An important adjustment has to be made by the  child leaving the world of home  where the spot-light is centred  on him, to enter the world of  school, where he becomes one  of a group, no more or no less  important than the others to his  teacher. It is a hard adjustment  for some children to make, but  make it they do, some quickly,  some ont so quickly.  I thought what a challenge  we face today in the leading and  education of our children. In  their hands lies the future character of this great nation. It  will be well if, on their way  through school, they have instilled in their hearts and minds  the qualities of unselfishness,  justice and fair-play, so sadly  lacking today at the council  meetings of the nations.  Timely Hints  By BETTY BUDGET  THOSE .sheets of cellpphane\  wrapping that have been off  the ., market for ��� months and  years have appeared again. The  perfect thing for wrapping that  particular gift, they are on display in a regular-rainbow of  colors at local stores.  MIDGET BOTTLES  Another, item that has been  , practically non-existent is those  little hot-water bottles that are  just the thing for the baby, or  for small applications such as  earache, etc. They are on sale  locally now, in various colors.  SAVE THOSE SNAPS  In spite of film shortages,  most of you will have some  vacation snaps to show. We  saw. .some particularly nice  ���albums.in one local store, and  they would certainly help to  make the snaps more entertaining, as well as preserving the  memory for future years.  SINK ACCESSORY  It's a clever little gadget, and  inexpensive too, that little at-  . tachment that fits onto any faucet and provides either a fine  spray for dishwashing or fruit  cleaning, or a straight stream  of filtered water. The adjustment from spray to steam takes  but a moment, and the thing  looks really foolproof.  HARDWARE ITEMS  One store at least has a selection of hollow-ground stainless  steel paring knives at a modest  price. In the same store we saw  some of those wall-type can-  openers. But these items have  been pretty scarce, and these  new arrivals look like better-  than-average quality.  CURTAIN ROD  From England comes a new  type   curtain   rod   that   many  housewives will find a real use  for.   Rods of any type have been  very hard to get, and these new  ones are worth looking at. They  are in the form of a very tight  steel spring, and are easily cut  to any desired length and attached   with   eyelets   supplied.  They'll even bend easily around  corners,  Which should suggest  new  uses   to  ingenious  home-  makers.  LAMPS AGAIN  Last week we mentioned  standard lamps, but we. can't  resist saying something about  the modernistic glass and plastic  table lamps decorating a local  store window. They're on the  expensive side, but really smart  looking and would make ideal  gifts.  Remember when you used to  have trouble deciding whether  to get the grey suit with the  light stripe, or the blue serge  with two pairs of pants?  Each person on earth is dependent upon people. Isn't it a  great pity that they are so un*  reliable?  Mr. and Mrs. C. Smith, returned  to her home Tuesday.  *    *    *'  The new ration books will be  distributed at MacKenzie's store  on Wednesday, Friday and Saturday, September 11, 13 and 14,  between 3 and 5 p.m.  ALLEGED RUMOR  The newly married man sighed deeply as he said:  "The fellow who was my best  man came to lunch with us for  the first time on Sunday. My  wife's cooking impressed him so  much that he's sent her a carving set."  "That was very nice of him,"  said a listener.  "Oh, I don't "know. He sent her  three chisels and a maliet!"  H. G.

The slow signs which herald a  school once again become important factors in safe and sane driving.  For over  two months  we have  been  Bulls-eye View  THE INHABITANTS of a village in Lincolnshire, England, were recently astonished to  discover that a bull had climbed the narrow  spiral staircase of their 14th-century castle  tower, and was observing the world with interest from a window at the top. Conceivably the  adventurer was under the impression that it  was a bell-tower; for it will be remembered,  from the famous affair of Cock Robin, that the  bull fancies himself as a bell-ringer. Those,  however, who are inclined to regard this as a  cock-and-bull story, might prefer the explanation that his motive lay purely in a common-  sense endeavor to spy out the best pasture.  But althbugh his object may be in doubt,  there is one interesting conclusion to be deduced  from the episode: We must not, on the strength  of his well known anti-red attitude, write the  bull down as a hopeless reactionary. He has  shown that he is certainly progressive, capable  of rising to heights far above the level of the  common herd, and of taking wide and detached  views.  Poet^s Corner  .  LEISURE  THOUGHTS  IN  CHINA  By WYNNE  We are a trouble people, yb wars harassed;  Bo much has gone, so much has passed.  But here in this small garden there is light,  And somewhere birds are singing in the night.  The song and these are free;  The moon, the pool, and the willow tree.  The pool reflects the sky and the sky is a pool  Of stars. The moon travels on serene ahd cool.  I rest in the shadows. The shadows are warm  With memories. Here, for a moment, I, too, am  free; Y  I've the moon, the pool, and the willow tree.  The tree is a poem, and a tree  With strong roots that in a way are a part of me,  In that there is courage, pleasure,  To cheer my heart, enjoy my leisure.  The sun will rise again in the east.  Knowledge on which my thoughts may feast.  Here for a moment I have been rich and at ease,  I've the moon, the pool, and the willow trees.  able to breeze along ignoring these slow  si^ns. Now, with many youngsters attending^ school for the first time, we need  to take heed again of these warnings, and  to watch the traffic arteries just a mite  sharper for unheeding, hurried small feet.  Another Injns&iee  SOMEWHAT as Gladstone's England was to  y Ireland is Canada to the Maritimes, if we  could judge by the chorus of four Halifax  newspapers which think of the rest of Canada  as a plotting, diabolical tyranny whose statesmen lie awake o' nights scheming new injustices for those parts of Canada east of Quebec.  Of these four The Chronicle is waving its  shillelagh now because the Maritimes are represented on the $1 postage stamp by a picture  of the Prince Edward Island train ferry and  a fishing boat.  The Chronicle is sulky on two counts. The  first is that if the postmaster-general could  think of no more typical picture of Maritime  life and industry he might as well have forgotten about the Maritimes altogether���as he  has, the paper grumbles. The second is that no  one will ever see the picture without paying  for a dollar's worth of postage. And who would  ever use a dollar stamp anyway?  The majority of the good people of the Maritimes, as those here in British Columbia, will  find The Chronicle's chip on the shoulder rather  laughable.  Bible Reading  BLESS THE LORD, O my soul: and all  that is within me, bless His Holy name.  Bless the Lord, 0 my soul, and forget not  all His benefits: Who forgiveth all thine  iniquities; Who healeth all thy diseases;  Who redeemeth thy life from destruction;  Who crowneth thee with loving kindness  and tender mercies; Who satisfieth thy  mouth with good things; so that thy  youth is renewed like the eagle's.  He hath not dealt with us after our  sins; nor rewarded us according to our  iniquities. For as the heaven is high  above the earth, so great is His mercy  toward them that fear him���-PSALM 103:  1-5, 10-11.  "I beg your pardon, but what is your name?"  the hotel clerk asked.

GOOD QUALITY ���  FAIR FBXCB  MIDWAY GENERAL  STORE  Gibsons Landing  Near Howe Souitd School  Quality Merchandise  Wednesday and Saturday  Free Delivery  J. E. Connor, Proprietor  PIECES of rock, gorgeously  colored, glittering in the sun,  lay in the show-window of a  Victoria clothier. They caught  the eye of many a man, and  among the men was Ed. Blewett  of Tacoma.  Ed liked those rocks right off.  Before long, he was on his way  to where he might see more of  them. At Texada Island he had  his wish. He saw more and  liked them better and better.  In 1895, Ed Blewett opened the  Copper Queen. He saw Texada  with a future. Mineral was  everywhere. Capital was-iieed-  "���' ed.    y ���.}������  Blewett    filled    his t.pockets  with samples of the rock and  ., carried a suitrcase made heavier  with ore chunks.   Then he set  *' out.    '  On a train speeding westward  a New York couple were enjoying all the service that money  could demand. That the young  couple were' honeymooning  didn't deter Ed Elewett. Out  came the1 precious rocks with  their yellow, bronze and purplish colorings. Harry Whitney  Treat, though not a metallurgist,  showed keeri interest. Blewett  warmed to his pet theme. Capital, he said, capital was all they  lacked. The ore lay where  nature had formed it, close to  the sea.  Treat was interested. He was  keen enough to travel to Nanaimo, thence across the strait to  Texada Island, to examine the  area.  So was conceived the company  that boosted mining on coastal  British Columbia and turned on  Texada, eyes from all parts of  North America.       >.  The new company, financed  chiefly by rjew York and Chicago capital^ with Ed Blewett as  president and H. W. Treat as  managing director, was named  the Van Anda Copper and Gold  Company after Mr. Blewett's  son, Van Anda.  The company worked the Cornell, Little Billy and Copper  Queen mines. By 1898 it was  decided that a smelter was to be  built at once, at the edge of the  ; bay not far from the dock. Mr.  Treat, talented and ambitious,  ��� laid out,a townsite, the present  Van Anda. He assisted the  miners in their home-building,  he arranged for the erection of  a school, an attractive little  church and a cottage hospital.  And what of the young New  York couple themselves, who  while honeymooning in the  west, were caught in the T^x- .  ada mining whirl? Harry Whitney Treat was an eastern financier whose vision knew no  bounds. His was an engaging  personality.' His fine solo voice,  made him doubly welcome at  parties. His wife, the former  Olive Graaf, daughter of a  wealthy Philadelphia wine merchant, had been termed the  belle of New York and one of  the most beautiful women in  North America. Mrs. Treat  died in Seattle a few months  ago, while Mr. Treat passed  away several years ago. Their  home had been in Seattle since  1902.  ���While at Texada the Treats  built a home at Van Anda,  which, though repaired and re?  modelled in part, is still known  as the Treat house. Summer  holidays were spent partly at  Turtle Lake where they erected  a log house that was the envy  of many a young couple on the  island. Parties were frequent.  Mrs. Treat, however, did not  live continuously at Van Anda.  Her first arrival is still recalled  by a few women of Van Anda  who were small girls at that  time. Her trunj^ filled with  beautiful  dresses,   stylish  New  York hats, gorgeous gowns and  matching parasols, set her apart.  Even some very special pieces of  furniture 'arrived at the Van  Anda home from across the  continent.  No,��� wonder then that the  island newspaper (February 15,  1900), headed its local interest  column with:  "Mrs. H. W. Treat is expected  at Van Anda by next Saturday's  boat. Van Andeans and Texada people generally will be  delighted to have Mrs. Treat  with them once more."  "In the Dominican Republic  it is considered bad luck tovdrink  coffee standing up." With us it  is unfortunate not to, if one expects to catch the 7:45.  ��� '  i  ���' .  -      '        ���             '  t  idr  YOU WRECK 'EM  WE FIX'EM  ��� '   ' *��� ���'* r"    -   ��� -v ���'  ��� Complete Auto Body,  Fenders, Radiators and Top  Repairs at City Prices.  ��� AUTO PAINTING  OtJR SPECIALTY!

On the average it will boost  each workman's earnings by  $235 a year.  To the public, who foots the  bill, adds The Post, the wage  boost could conceivably mean  that the expected $7.5 million  surplus which the C.N.R. expected to hand over to the fed-,  eral treasury from 1946 operations, will not materialize.  Vision, Skill, Work  Make Rich Farm  JUST what a combination of vision, plus hard work and skill  can do is seen on a farm near  London, Ont., where the Belgian  born owner has just refused  $32,000 for land, which only six  years ago "just wouldn't grow a  thing", says the Niagara Falls  Review. By judicious application of farming skill and fertilizer the farmer has made of it  one of the richest tobacco farms  in that area.

But it becomes  exceedingly complex when an  effort is made to reduce round  figures to a nodding relation to  reality.  The source book for most participants in the housing controversy is the Curtis reporj published in 1944.  Here are some of the estimates:  About 250,000 families are  sharing 100,000 dwellings.  To provide each with a unit  of its own requires immediately  150 new units.  In addition houses are wearing out. At least 175,000 should  be replaced immediately and at  least 27,000 new houses are required yearly to take care of the  annual wearing out.  In all there is an accumulated  need of 500,000 housing units.  Building 25,000 a year for 20  years would take care of the  back-log. The minimum required to take care of increasing annual need would be, about  37,000 a year.  But these figures were based  on the 1941 census figures and  are now out of date.  During the war there was a  substantial amount of voluntary  doubling up in housing. Wives  of service men stayed with parents. But with the return of  service men a pent up backlog  of housing demand exploded.  Our national vital statistics  point up this fact. In the 10  years frqm 1926 to 1935 there  were 702,000 marriages. In the  10 years from 1937 there were  1,079,000. Reduced to annual  averages the figures are 70,200  a year for the first period and  107,900 for the second. An increase of almost 50 per cent in  the marriage rate was accorn-  panied by a 33 per cent increase  in the birth rate-  On the other hand, the break-  do wn in families through death  remained constant at 25,000 a  year. Each hew family is a  potential housing customer.  Subtracting the 25*000 from the  107,900 leaves a potential housing need of 82,000 units a year  for the war years.  During those years an average pf less than 25,000 units  were built. With, the arrival of  children, the need fox: housing  of these hew families 'becomes  more pressing.  Even  experts  agr.ee that  so  long as full employment exists '  there is going to be no diminution in the present demand for  housing.  The author of "The Lost  Week-End" has cooked up another, about marriage. Contrary  to our fond expectations, it is  not to be entitled "The Mislaid  Missus".  SECHELT  W J.

Parr Peatson (Sechelt Telephone)  Consolidated Brokers Ltd.  942 West Pender Street,  Vancouver, B.C.  THERE IS a lot of excitement  in many homes around this time  of year because of the reopening of the schools for the fall  and winter term. I know a lot  of little people who are starting  scho61 for the first time and.  they are very much excited. In  some cases they may go off their  food slightly and turn up their  nose  at this  and that  because  their new found friend Johnny  or Tim doesn't eat such-and-  such and their mummy doesn't  make them either. When Junior  decides he won't eat, don't talk  too much about the food and  DON'T impress upon him, or try  to, that it is nourishing for him.  Try giving unusual names to the  dishes���names that will appeal  to him.    Also, lei him wait on  himself. Start the youngsters  out very young waiting on  themselves. Chances are he'll  drink his milk with gusto if you  let him pour his own from a  small pitcher or a glass measuring cup into a small mug or cup.  Start him out on new foods  , gradually and combine them  with more familiar foods. Don't  give    him    strong-flavored    or  highly - seasoned dishes. Half  the battle in getting children,  and grownups, too, to eat is in  serving attractive-looking and  good-tasting food. It is sometimes necessary to resort to a  little scheming to get children  to eat the extra-nutritious foods  that are good for them. Here are  a few special'ways of transforming foods with a dull reputation  into dishes of glamour.  SKIPPYBURGERS  Here's a different type of  hamburger. By mixing the  flour with the meat the strong  liver flavor is reduced. Combine, mixing well: % pound of  ground liver, % pound ground  lean beef, 1 tsp. salt, Vs tsp. pepper, 1 tbsp. of chili sauce or catsup, 2 tbsp. grated onion, V* cup  all-purpose flour. On waxed  paper, shape meat mixture into  8 round patties about V2 mcn  thick. Fry patties on hot,  greased, heavy frying pan for 5  to 10 minutes, or until done and  browned, turning once. Serve  hot on hamburger buns with  catsup or chili sauce. Makes 8  patties.  to pep up the flavor. Cooking  the vegetables in shortening or  drippings adds a delicious richness that children enjoy.  Combine in heavy saucepan:  JA cup shortening or drippings  and 2 cups of diced mixed vegetables (carrots, potatoes, celery,  onions). Cook for 3 to 5 minutes over low heat, stirring occasionally. Cover and continue  cooking about 5 minutes, or  until vegetables are tender. Add:  1 quart milk, 1 tsp. salt and %  tsp. pepper. Heat slowly to boiling point and serve hot. This  quantity will serve 6.  GOLD NUGGET SALAD  This orange, peanut and cabbage coleslaw is an easy salad  to make and tasty too. It's one  way to serve cabbage so that  the children will eagerly eat it.  3y2 to 4 cups finely shredded  chilled iabbage, 12 to 15 peeled  orange sections, y% cup of salad  dressing or sour-cream dressing. Garnish with chopped peanuts.    Serve at once.    Serves 6.

SECHELT STORE  General Merchandise  including  Provisions,  Shoes,  Hardware, Drygoods,  Patent  Medicines,  RB1W  BLACK BEAUTY PUDDING  (Baked Prune Whip)  This is a soft and fluffy dessert which makes prunes popular. Some people prefer it with  custard sauce made from the  unused egg yolks. I will give  you first the recipe as It was  given me by a friend of mine  and which I liked very much  except that I thought it much  too sweet. However, some people like food, particularly light  desserts, very sweet. At the end  of this recipe I will give you  the one I like .myself.  Mix together in saucepan:  11/2 cups pitted cooked prunes,  % cup of sugar, % tsp. salt, 2  tsp. lemon juice,* 1 tsp. grated  orange rind. Cook over low  heat until sugar is dissolved,  stirring constantly. Cool. Beat  until stiff: 3 egg whites, gradually add, continuing to beat until very stiff: Vs cup sugar then  add y2 CUP broken nut meats  (optional). Fold in cooled  prune mixture; pour into baking  pan; place in pan of hot water.  Bake 1^4 hours, or until sharp  ; knife inserted in. centre comes  out clean.   Serve warm or cold  with or without custard sauce.  This quantity serves 6 to 8.  NOTE: This is the way I like  to make it: To one can of strain:  ed prune pulp (baby can size)  fold in the whites of two eggs,  beaten stiff but not dry to which  about 3 tsp. of sugar have been  added.    Pour into custard cups  and bake in a pan of hot water  until a sharp knife cames out  clean, or just serve cold without  having first heated it.   This way  is perhaps a lazy way, but if  you are in a hurry and want  something like and nourishing,  it can be whipped up in short  order.  SUNSHINY MASHED  POTATOES  (Mashed Potatoes and Carrots)  For a colorful variation that  appeals to children, add carrots  to mashed potatoes. If they are  cooked and mashed separately,  they combine more smoothly.  Peel, quarter and place in boiling water: 3 medium-size potatoes. Peel, slice and place in  boiling water: 6 medium-size  carrots. Cook rapidly until tender, about 15 minutes for carrots and ?5.minutes for potatoes.*  Drain.;thoroughly,' saving V* cup.  liquicf fro mcarrots; Mash or  sieve cooked vegetables. Combine in top.. of double boiler with  carrot liquid. Place over hot  water and add 1 tbsp. shortening, 1 tsp. salt and V& tsp. pepper. Beat with spoon until light  and fluffy and serve hot.
