True, v lie Had the whis-  "|^r ^f^Meytfees andythe song of  ;t?he HMs 3fprya lullaby^ but there  was something pathetic about  theylittle mOiirid of earth; and  the stone slab that bore., the  names of the old man who had  piice���lived in the little house at*  tlie-yfoot Of the hills.  ^tl never knew; the old man  yWho lies beside John, but I did  ;knpw old John, that independ-  y ei^e-loyihg;. old sOul j who heVer  ^$k^:a faypurr^^a  ^^ijpffls^i:"HeM^:^ys0_itary^  ysdul^tovihg^  his independence.  And, though he liVe^foWmahy,  many years in this little com-  : munity, I doubt -if there was  even one neighbour who knew  Mm really well.  Sometimes when we went to  the store, in our boat;-we would  see the olid man ahead! of us in  his rowboat. Should/he happen  to s^e'tis coming- he would row  behind the little island and remain out of sight yuntil^ we had  passed. Should \^yh|ippe_i to  sneak up on him, unh6ticied,y he  he would wayeylor us to pass  on without stoppirigytb give; hiin  atow. Yes, he was truly an  independent old soul.  FATALILLNESS  lie must have known for a  long timely about the sickness  that '^y^si'ei^i^'zh^z-l^e/ away<  for he set his houseyin orders-  made Jijsu-^ill^n^ to the  hospital toy 5ije> yThat day-he  went before the, magistrate to  niake his will, I think he asked  the only favour he ever asked  rrom a neighbour, for] he agked  his nearest neighbour' to go  w?ith him,' His weak /old hands  being too feeble to toy? his bfcat.  It>was^aycpld> 'miserable day in  ! the middleof winter and* when  they returned, I asl^ thein into  the house to, warm themselves,  and ������ wasyagreeably surprised  "(vhen the old man accepted the  invitation* . He held his half-  frozen hands out to the blazing  fire and said, "This feels good."  I rose and put the kettle on,  the old man watching me suspiciously the while. "I am going to make you a cup of tea,"  I told him. "It^ will help ?to  warm you."  Like a shot he was out of the  chair and hastening towards  the door. "I have got to get  home," he said. ' "I have such a  lot of things to do."  That was the last time I ever  saw him.    The following week  Sechelt Legion W.A.  Honors Mrs. French  SECHELTV-Mrs. A. yA. French,  who has been active in veterans'  affairs for both WpfId Wars has  been awarded a^life y'member-r  to the Canadian Legion. * Mrs.  French _?erved in the First  World War and since coming to  Canada nearly 30 years ago, has  been active in war work and in  helping veterans.  Start on New Wharf  SECHELT��� Work on the new  wharf for Sechelt will start  immediately after the end of the  tourist season, according to  word received by the Sechelt  Improvement Association from  Jahies Sinclair, M.P. Cost of  the new wharf will be $37,000.  A committee has been formed to study ythe wharf plan and  insure itsy ,suitabiiity for local  needs.  He was in hospital, and the week  after that he was lying in the  little graveyard oh the hill.   His  was the first grave to be dug  there, arid there was something  about  that  pathetic  mound  of  'earth that; saddened my soul.  \   Maybe it was pity that made  me lay a little bunch^qf roses on  the lonely grave^^tHis summer, ���  or maybe it was my  reproaching ; me ifjt)_S;.y_^tt-;tiy_iigi  to get to know the old man bet-r  ter.   Whichever it was, yfc know  that John, the independent old  pioneer,   would   have   resented  the- liberty I had  taken.    But  somehow,.! think old John now  understands , the ���_ feeling   that  prompted my action.  Yes, I am glad they laid that  other old man beside John in  the little graveyard on the hill.  Maybe it was only my imagination, but the trees around the  little graveyard seemed to be  greener this summer, and the  birds seemed to have added a  sweet hew note to their song.  Goodbye, old John. Until  the day breaks and the shadows  flee, rest in peace.  ���Fhoto Courtesy P.R. News  NOSEY BEAR came to an unhappy end after venturing into  the village of Westvievy Sunday night, stealing fruit,  startling residents and,,frightening.chickens. Numerous incidents have been reported this fall from smalI towns on the  coast where bears and cougars have b^en wandering right  into back yards. The hairy black marauder shown above was  shot by Godfrey Harper of Westview who got him in an alder  tree. The 300-lb. Bruin climbed the tree after being cornered  in a thicket.

Improvement Assn.  Annual Meeting Set  SECHELT ��� The Sechelt District Irriprovement Association will hOld its annual meeting and election of officers on  Friday, October 3, at Sechelt  United School. This organization hasdbeen in existarice since  z;l^veitdpefy 1^40. The association was' inactive from April  1942 to April 1945 when, due to  the rapidly increasing population it was realized that the  time was ripe for the organization to resume its activities.  Since that time.the membership  has dpubled.  As this-association deals with  local problems it is. of interest  to k ratepayers especially, al-  " though the membership is open  also to residents of six months  standing.  SPEED LIMIT URGED  ON  SECHELT  ROAD  SECHELT ��� B;C. police have  recommended that the Pender-Hopkins road be designated  as a through street and that  speed limits and zoning areas  be specified.  Standard Oil Dealers  Now Chevron Stations  TO ESTABLISH the identity of  its dealers as independent  businessmen, and to distinguish:  . their stations from the red,  white and blue units operated  by the company, Standard j Oil  Company of British Columbia  Limited has commenced AtHe  conversion of all its dealers  throughout the provinceB|to  Chevron gas stations. fifC  This conversion program ���eoh~ .  sists chiefly of a new cream,  green and burgundy color  scheme, a distinctive Chevron  gas station identification sign,  and other advertising signs  which feature the name of the  individual dealer rather than  t|ie. company whose products he  handles.  "Surveys have shown," say  Standard officials, "that most  people prefer to deal at their  neighborhood gas station . . .  with the man who is in business  for himself . . . for there, because their business is more  appreciated, they get a friendlier,^ more personal type of service;. That is why we are identifying the independent stations which, handle Chevron  Supreme gasoline and R.P.M.  motor oil, with the Chevron gas  station sign and colors."

BEAR   FACTS   GIVEN  WORRIED READER  Editor, Coast News.  Dear Jack McGoon, ~  In reply to your bear story of  September 19, I would like to^  give you some "bear" facts.  It is quite permissible for"  you to wear your "Stanfield's  underwear" to bed���providing  you have two pair, (but where-  did you buy them?). As-far as-  the bear is concerned, he'll be1  sleeping most of the winter,  anyway.  Why not try, like the bear,  then you will be able to stay up  nights and escort him through  your humble home during the  summer months.  Spike Malone, Sechelt.

Redd The "News"  By LES PETERSON  A NEW industry is being carried on in the quiet of a summer cottage by the beach here  at Gibsons.  Hugo Rhys came up from  Hollywood about a year ago;  and has since been working  with various materials in an  effort to find a fresh medium  for manufacturing the earrings,  brooches, combs and countless  other accessories which do so  much to add charm to feminine  fashion.  It was not until he met the  vivacious Mrs. Rhys that the  search finally ended and the  two of them worked night and  day to develop further their  process of fabricating plastic  into the lovely creations which  will shortly be seen on shop  counters here, in; Vancouver,  and in other parts of Canada;  This development represents an  entirely new field for expressing beauty in color and elevates  plastic to its rightful place as  the modern means to create  lovely jewellery which is both  unbreakable and at the same  time light as a feather.  *    *    *  Mrs. Whamsley is returning  to her Vancouver home after a  nine-week holiday. She reports  that   her  health   is   much   im-  Sechelt  Motor  Transport  Winter Schedule  = - '4k   Effective  October 1st, 1947  proved, and that in many ways  she regrets having to return.  * . *    *  A well known Headlands  couple have deserted Gibsons  for a few months. Mr. Donald  Cochrane has accepted the  principalship of the Port Alice  school for the coming term, and  Mrs. Cochrane has become  supervisor of the Indian School  at Alert Bay. It is hoped that  they   will    return   here   after  school is out.  * *    *  Johnny MacDonald went for  a spin in his merry Oldsmobile  last Sunday and wound up at  road's end at Irvines Landing.  In good neighborly fashion he  took Mrs. Rita Peterson and  family along for the drive. It  was the first time any of them,  including  the   automobile,   had  made the journey.  * *    *  The Kullander Bros. Garage  has changed hands. The purchaser, Lew Reid, took over on  September 2. Lew is no stranger  to Gibsons. He came here first  in 1932 and remained until 1939.  In 1940 he enlisted in the Royal  Canadian Army Service Corps,  with which branch he served  until his discharge in 1944. He  is married and has three children.  In addition to his instructional  duties in automotive mechanics  during the war, Lew has had  considerable experience in garage work in civilian life. He  has worked with Standard Oil,  Begg Motors, MacLachlan  Motors, Big Chief Service, and  Varsity Service before establishing his own business here at  Gibsons.

Wherefore should I  fear in the days of evil, when  - the iniquity of my heels shall  compass me about? They that  trust in their wealth, and boast  themselves in the multitude of  their riches; None of them can  by any means redeem his brother, nor give to God a ransom  for him: (For the redeption of  their soul is precious, and it  ceaseth for ever:) That he  should still live for ever, and  not see. corruption. For he  seeth that wise men die, likewise the fool and the brutish  person perish, and leave their  wealth to others.  Like sheep they are laid in  the grave; death shall feed on  them; and the upright shall  have dominion over them in the  morning; and their beauty shall  comsume in the grave from  their dwelling. But God will  redeem my soul from the power  of the grave: for He shall receive me. Be not thou afraid  when one is made rich, when  the glory of his house is increased; For when he dieth he  shall carry nothing away: his  glory shall not descend after  him.  Man that is in honour, and  understandeth not, is like the  beasts that perish.  ���Psalm 49:1-10,14-17,20  Individual Watering  is no Problem  with a DURO Pump  Keeps fresh clean water before the Cattle  all the time.. .when they want iu  PUMP water through your barn with the dependable DURO PUMP.
