 3       :"    - t V_/ V   1 k S V.t ! <   �� V-      j  5       LIBRARY      1  }  HARRY DAVEY, complete with  cigarette, was telling me about  the trouble he sometimes has  with wood while making cabinets for Dick Fitchett. Harry took  over on the work bench from  Walt Sicotte who is now staying  over from his holidays in Hearst,  Ontario. It seems Walt went  down . to the eastern province  firmly intending to return to the  land of the evergreen playground (who said that) but he  fell in love with Hearst and  there he  is now.  The Reader's. Digest recently  came out with this  one.  One of the single girls in our  office came in early one morning  and began passing out cigars and  candy, both with blue ribbons.  Somewhat puzzled and more  than a little surprised, we asked  the occasion. Proudly she displayed the solitaire on her,third  finger, left hand, and announced: "It's a boy ��� six feet tall  and 185 pounds,"  With apologies to O. Henry  we. go for  the following:  There once was a Gibsons family who lived a life of good and  looked after a grandmother who  was old and friendly and loved''  ; the Sechelt Peninsula. But, as  will happen to all of us, Grandma fell seriously ill and had to  have relief by means of an elixir  from Lang's Drugs which, because of some peculiar whim of  the owner had to be had from  only the Sechelt store of the  chain of stores which stretches  all of the 20 miles from Sechelt  to Gibsons. .  '' Nothing could be done by the  family except - send-- Graadad ��� out -  for the medicine. Nothing loth,  he would have been shot first if  he had been loth, Grandad hied  .himself out the vine covered  trellis gate and, turning as he  [rounded the corner at the 'Shell  ras Station, waved and vaiiish-  ;d into the winding trail which  leads to Sechelt.  The family sat by the fireside  (-Continued' on Page 8)  fines Follow  Liquor Charges  ROBERTS CREEK���Two youths,  ' George Francis Weal and Ron  iBlomgren, were each fined $10  and costs when they appeared  before Magistrate Sydney McKay, October 26, on a charge of  being in possession of liquor.

'  Members   of   the   Legion   and  Teddy Newman  Raffle Winner  SECHELT ��� Ten-year-old The-  adore Newman was the lucky  owner and envy of his friends  when he was named winner of  the hand-made, genuine leather  handbag during the raffle at the  Indian   Residential School.  Money raised by this means  will be used to buy more leather  for the classes in this popular  pastime. Winning bag was made  by Tommy Paul, already an artist at the job of handling lea-  therwork.

Frank Postlethwaite  In Vancouver Rites  y^ m Van  couver last week   of. Francis   Postlethwaite  (Frank)   and  Miss Edna" Arlene May.  Married in St Mary's Anglican Chruch, the ceremony was  performed by Rev Dudley Kemp.   :  The   bride  was  charming    in  ice blue satin gown with nylon  net and lily-point sleeves, her  gown ending in full train.  Her embroidered blue. net,  finger tip veil cascaded from a  pleated satin Juliet cap while  she carried baby chrysanthemums and   pink rosebuds.  Mrs J. Thibeau attended her  sister   as   matron   of   honor     in  Cumming Death  Was Accident  GIBSONS ��� Death by accidental drowning was the verdict  brought down by a coroner's  jury on the inquest following  the  finding of the body of Ro-     dawn pink taffeta with full skirt  bert Allan Cumming, 32, washed  up on the beach at Garden Bay,  October 9.  The jury, under Coroner Dr  D.; T. R. McColl added a laudit-  ory rider when they commended  Christopher William Reay for  his attempt to save the drowned  man by jumping fully clothed  into the broiling sea.  The body was found floating  in the water by Lloyd Davis,  hotel operator.  Kin Tigers Trounce  IPoweriul West Van  GIBSONS���"Kin Tigers" basketball team took off on a flying  f start when they trounced the highly touted West Vancou  ver team 44-17 in the first of an Inter B schedule.  This is probably the first time  in" the history of Gibsons  basketball that a local team has travelled into the comparative  big time and walked away with      : ��� -"���  such honors. The defeated team    buckets from Chuck Kane,   Bill  has been rated next to last year's    Pye and Wally Sandberg.  and off-the-shoulder neck line.  Miss Marion Bennett as bridesmaid was in fuschia embroidered  taffeta. Both attendants carried  nosegays.  The bride was given in marriage by her brother-in-law,  Dennis Thibeau. During signing  of the register Miss Audrey Fryer, an accomplished violinist,  played a solo.  Maurice Gerard was best man  and ushers were David Simpson  and James Postlethwaite.  Mr and Mrs Postlethwaite left  for a motor trip, and on their  return will reside in  Sechelt.  Lessen Quorum  GIBSONS���Roberts   Creek  school   will   probably  be   built   immediately at a cost of "definitely not more than $40,900."  Provided the expected  green  light on the  incentive contract basis is given by the Department of Education, work will  commence within two weeks following.   L.  O.   McCarter    Construction  Company of Vancouver will  handle the building, using "local  contractors and sub trades  wherever it is feasible."  It is believed local men will  get the preference on a day labor basis as well as the above  categories.  School Board -building committee, headed by A. E. Ritchey, and  aided by School Inspector C.  Frederickson and Architect Harold Cullern drew up the new  agreement which will use the  "target  contract"   basis.  Target contract or incentive  contracts are used in cases where  original open bids are too high.  The School Board, with approval from the Department of Education, may negotiate a deal on  the open market with any reliable,    competent  authority.  An outside figure is reached,  in this case approximately $38,-  000. the contractor works on a  progressive payment plan, without any cost in outlay or gambling insurance, but can claim 25  percent of any savings he makes  below  the  target  price.  The Board, provided the school  cannot be built for the $38,000,  has  the   authority  to  use up to  .J40?900v     _    ,....-. .  ...  A" 'School Board authority  pointed out the board has already assured itself the school  can be built for that sum but  there is a good chance that savings can be made through this  type of bargaining   contract.  School Inspector C. Frederick-  son, speaking for the Department of Education at a recent  school board meeting, suggested  approval of this type of plan  would be forthcoming from Victoria.  The McCarter Construction  Company were low bidders in  the recently opened, and turned  down, open estimates.  Water for the school was re-  centlv assured by Water Diviner  E. Clouse aided by a willow  wancl and the uniaue faculty of  "witching". School Board has not  as vet decided any course on this  important matter. It is expected  further developments will now  be speeded owing to the imminence  of  construction.  Cator Wins Pumpkin  GIBSONS ��� With a guess of 49  and a half pounds, B. M. Cator came closest to the actual  weight of the Kinsmen Pumpkin  (47 pounds three ounces).  Mr Cator won the target for  his   prize.  LANG  SANDS  Publisher of the Fraser Valley  Record, Mission City, who was  elected president of the Canadian Weekly Newspapers Association at the annual meeting  held in the Chateau Frontenac,  Quebec City, October 23-25.  His election to head the nation-wide-trade organization -of-  weekly newspapers is a distinct  honor to B.C. and is but the  fourth time in 31 years that the  office has fallen to a British Columbia rural publisher.  Mr Sands is a past president  of B.C. Division, CWNA and has  been a leader in the advancement of the provincial weekly  press for many years.  Much Help for  Unlucky Family  PENDER    HARBOUR   ���   This  community  has,   among   other  things, a soft heart.  Proof of this appeared during  a shower of homecraft and  equipment presented to Mr and  Mrs Pete Klein and family by  the Community Club.  Mrs Alice Haddock spoke of  the regard" in which the Klein  family is held in the area and  the spontaneous response of  Pender women when told of the  fire which destroyed the Klein  home and equipment.  Mrs Hazel Klein, in thanking  the ladies, spoke of her gratitude  at the amount and quality of the  gifts.  In Pender Club    Pender's Parade May  1 champions, Father J. Kilty's  CYO, in the' ratings.  !      The Tigers, for the  first time,  1 wore their gold and purple strip.  "It sure was good' to see these  \ boys  in action,"  said Father E.  ���' O'Dwyer, Tigers coach, following  the game. "They, were smart on  ' the ball and had far less errors  chalked against them than the  more experienced opponents.  Referees were strict and played  according to the rules laid down  by the B.C. Basketball Commission."   r  The Tigers led in the first  minute with a basket by Ron  Godfrey    followed    by    further  The second quarter saw Pye,  Godfrey and Nestman garner  further, points.  During the third canto, Captain J. Nestman and Co-Captain  Ron Godfrey added more points  with Pye and Kane also boosting their tojtals. During the final  session Howard Dean joined the  scorers. Mike Poole's basket was  disallowed.  Tiger lineup was as follows:  Jadkie Nestman and Ron ��� Godfrey, forwards; centre, Bill Pye,  and guards, , Chuck Kane and  Wally Sandberg; reserves, Noel  Poole, Mike Poole and Howard  Dean.  Coach and manager is Father  Ed O'Dwyer.  PENDER  HARBOUR���A   recent  meeting of the Pender Harbour Community Club has revealed a condition which will  have to be clarified at the next  general meeting, sometime this  month.  Executive members have been  having trouble getting a quorum. It will be suggested the required number be reduced from  the present 25 members in attendance to 15 for the future.  Members heard that $300 had  been paid, on the new .heating  equipment being installed by  Speck   Sheet Metal.  In order to allay rumors, a  complete statement of the club  will be published in a later issue  of this paper. Members decided  this course following, much misinformation now being distributed.  A nomination for officers  meeting will be held soon in  order that fishermen may be  able to attend.  Be   History's   First  'first  PENDER   HARBOUR���This  community   will   have   the  ever" Remembrance Parade on November 11.  Scene of the veteran parade will be the Community Hall,  Madeira   Park  at   11:30  a.m.   Services will   be conducted   by  Padre J. K. Williams, also a veteran.  According to organizing chair-      :���  man James Marsh, it is hoped to  have school children attend en  masse. Principal P. J. Thomas  will attempt to have the children attend voluntarily where a  non demoninational service will  be conducted.  Captain J. R. Jermaine will be  asked to officiate at the flag ceremony. It is also hoped to have  a representative from each of  the Army, Navy and Air Force,  attend in full uniform.  Len Hambly will be in control  at the piano while Mrs Dan  Cameron will  help with the re  freshments which are to follow.  Parade and service will be  sponsored by Canadian Legion  Branch 112. It is requested that  all veterans attend with either  poppies or medals or both. They  will line up outside the hall at  the appointed   hour.  30XAH3S  0 ��  VIHGXOI/ EDITOR, The News-  Sir: The Coast News is in error when it states that I was not  at the meeting to hear Mr H.  Howay give his interesting talk  . on taxes at the Sechelt Ratepayers'  Association.  Being there, I was surprised at  the lack of interest in the community as shown by the meagre  attendance. Mr Howay's statement that we can have a system  of lights and water by a vote  of the property owners has little  significance if past history is any  criterion.  The question of forming a village municipality has been  brought forward many times and  there has never been enough interest shown by the parties affected to warrant pushing 'the  matter any further. If it were at  all possible to form a village  municipality the street lights  and water would be. the first  consideration and also the matter of taxes would be in the  hands of the residents. It seems,  however, that these things are  not to be for quite a time. And  it is small wonder when you  note what a paltry few community minded turn out when  general  welfare is  at stake.  The recent auction sale by the  VON was a glaring instance  where a tremendous amount of  work was done by a willing few  and it seems that prominent  board members and residents of  Sechelt were conspicuous by  their absence, or were they at  the local show?

Other officers are: vice-presi7  dent, Chester Day; secretary-  treasurer, Len Pilling, while the  executive is composed of Ron De  Marco, Bill Douglas, Dennis Tyson and Jack Cresswell.  Legion President Ernie Sergeant advised the young group  that a photography class would  be in the running for prizes at  the end of the semester. "It will  cost $103 to build a complete  dark room, according to Dunn  and Rundle, equipment wholesalers,"  said  Mr  Sergeant.  There is also a distinct possibility a radio class can be in operation provided ten boys between the^ ages of 15 and 17 enroll. If anv boys are interested  would they please get in touch  with either Chester Day or Dennis Lowe. Mr E. Lowe will be  instructor for this class.  Jack Lowden has offered his  services to the bugle band. He  aims on having at least two boys  ready for the playing of the Last  Post during Armistice Day.  D. M.

Nestman at the request  of the Coast News. We believe the water situation will grow more important as the community  grows. We think a clarification of the Commission's views are important for guidance of ratepayers.  The past two years have been a very busy  time for the Water Department of Gibsons. During 1949 tapping of -the western springs source  project was undertaken. This included dam, cast-  iron pipe penstock and wash-out, construction  and approximately 3000 feet of two-inch galvanized pipe feeding into reservoir under head of  over 200 feet. Enlarging of the reservoir was also  undertaken increasing the holding of water to  present   capacity of 500,000 gallons.  This year saw the purchase of twenty acres,  present site of the reservoir, also main springs,  and a number of small sources as yet undeveloped. Tapping in to the reservoir of a separate  spring area will assure a good dry weather flow.  Lately fencing of main routes has been undertaken by which animals have been entering  the water area. Also clearing of timber around  reservoir.  Plans for the future at this time have not  yet been correlated, but new springs will definitely have to be tapped in to insure ample supply of water to supply newly amalgamated areas.  The proposed replacement of the Cannery road  pipe, which has been held up this year, is one of  the first things on the coming  agenda. This pipe  Give Them Room  WE WONDER if perhaps a clue  does not lie in  the fact the Kinsmen Tigers basketball team  won  its first "foreign" encounter against odds.  We are the first to admit the kids have a lot  of credit coming to them for this feat. But we  also have to admit to a certain amount of wonder.  In olden days, parents did the worrying and  the 'moulding' of their children, with remarkably  good results. We now have various groups spending their, full time busying themselves taking  over the prerogative of father and mother. They  approximately 2600 feet, is definitely in need of  replacement. Plans are to replace with a larger  main, to ensure greater supply of water to mains.  A long range program of water supply is in  the offing for whaj were districts 685, and 686,  and careful attention will have to be given to  ensure conditions will never repeat themselves  in the future. With some thoughtful planning, and  proper attention to expanding needs of the district, Gibsons water works could well be the  nucleous of a coming metropolitan water board  for the entire Peninsula. A community is only  as valuable as its water supply. We have been  very fortunate to have as water caretaker Wally  Graham, who has saved the Water Department  much time and money in his very conscientious  attention. At this time a word of gratitude certainly will not be out of order, and we have often  wondered if his work and time have been appreciated by. the many people in the district, who  would, without his attention to detail, have been  without water.    ����� ��� .     '  There is plenty of water, of this we are assured, but it will take time and much money.  And with costs mounting daily, ambitious as we  are, we can only spend what we'are allotted. So  far we have accomplished much without borrowing, in itself a commendable feat, but coming projects will certainly have to be financed. With  judicial planning, and a far-seeing programme,  we are sure of one of the finest water set-ups  in any area, and in the near future, even hope to  be able to help our neighbors.  now 'guide' the children.  The Tigers won their first battle without the  fond guidance of any group of kindly people. We  predict, alone, they will win more. .  Could it be we are being too 'guidy' and interfering with the progress of just growing?  Could it be we are softening our kids by too  much hothouse.  We have all seen flowers when subjected to  smothering kindness.  ffi&^^^$83ffi^l^$8*^lis^^i8��j$IS  .'.--r^*--; t  By   SHIRLEY  PINCHIN,  B.H.E.  FESTIVE  STEAMED  PUDDINGS  Now is the time to make your  puddings for the Holiday Season. Like Christmas cakes,  steamed puddings are -far richer  and more delightful if they are  allowed to mellow for a number  of weeks before they are ready  for your  festive table.  STEAMING  Pudding bowls, baking powder cans, coffee cans, or other  molds may be used for your puddings. The mold should be well  greased and filled to two-thirds  full with the pudding mixture.  Tight-fitting lids or several layers of waxed paper should be  used to cover the molds. Either  set the pudding dish in a perforated steamer or on a false bottom in a closely covered kettle  or roasting pan. The water in the  pan should not be deep enough  to boil up to the tops of the  molds, but at least half way up  the molds.  Cover the kettle tightly and  steam for the required length of  time. The water should boil  gently during the steaming process. Add more water fr^m time  to time as it boils  down.  Once you start steaming, make  sure that the water is always  boiling at the same level. If the  boiling stops, the resulting pudding may be heavy and indigestible.  PRESSURE   COOKING  The long time of steaming required for puddings in the past  can be greatly lessened by taking advantage of your pressure  cooker. It will take less than  one-half the time required in  the steamer to cook your puddings in the pressure cooker.  Place pudding batter in well-  greased molds just as for steaming, filling the molds to two-  thirds full.. Adjust the covers  and be sure to cover puddings  very well. Place the bowls on a  rack in the cooker. Put water in  the cooker about half the depth  of the molds. Put lid on cooker  and steam pudding with the pet-  cock OPEN for 30 minutes. Then  bring to 15 pounds pressure and  process about 50. minutes.  OLD-FASHIONED  PLUM   PUDDING  This is  the real  old-fashioned  plum pudding that is a must for  Christmas    dinner.     Hot,     rich,  fruit-filled   pudding so  delicious  ' and  traditional. -  1 1-pound loaf day-old bread  1 tablespoon salt  2 teaspoons cinnamon  Vz teaspoon allspice  Vz teaspoon cloves  Vz teaspoon mace  Vz teaspoon nutmeg  2 cups  scalded milk '  6 eggs,1 well-beaten  1 cup packed brown sugar  3 cups seeded   raisins  1 cup currants  1 cup dates,   chopped"  Vz cup candied cherries,  chopped  Vz cup sliced citron   peel  Vz cup  sliced  candied peels  % cup finely ground suet  1 tablespoon grated  orange  rind  Vz cup orange juice,   pineapple  or grape juice, or  Vi cup brandy  and  Vt cup fruit juice  Cut bread into very fine cubes.  Add salt and ' spices and cover  with scalded milk. Let stand for  ten minutes, then stir to break  up bread crumbs. Cool the mixture. *  Beat eggs and beat in sugar.  Add with other ingredients to  the bread mirture and spoon cr  pour into- well-greased molds of  two-quart capacity. Cover the  molds with lids, several thicknesses of waxed paper or aluminum foil and steam for 4Vz to  5 hours according to directions  for steaming.

NESTMAN  MRS SAM ARMOUR, Mrs  Rhodes and Miss Sue Armour  have left for two-months' holiday in Waco, Texas. Meeting relations, and friends, a giant family reunion is planned. Wilf  Nestman down for ten-days' holiday.  Home for the week-end Claire  Veitch and Pat Edwardson.  A.way for holidaysv Neil Sutherland, one of "Our Bank's" employees, expects to go as far as  Windsor,  Ont.  Away for a holiday for a couple of weeks, Mrs Wardil, hoping  the change may benefit her, certainly hope it does for her sake.  Mrs Frank Wheeler had her  baby girl Sunday morning, after  that very very long stay in Pen-  3er Hospital, at least it seemed  that way to her. Everyone fine,  and we'd like to add our congratulations to all the rest (Stepping into "Aries" territory, but  snow she won't object, as Josie  s a friend of mine).  Wilf Gray away on two-weeks'  vacation.  We'd like to welcome into our  Village our neighbors . from 685  md 686. After a long and bitter  .attle,   they   have    finally   been  included into Gibsons. From now  for the betterment of the whole  area. There is much to be done,  and a long road ahead for planning, will take lots of patience  and co-operation, it's time now  to bury all differences, and work  for one object, a bigger and better Gibsons.  Deploring the fact that a place  of such size has no hotel, newcomers to our district staying in  the apartment of Mrs Milligan,  are amazed that such accommodations are lacking. Mr and Mrs  Wiles, very taken with our fine  set-up here, feel there is also a  great deal lacking, that we  should have. Also last week folks  that I had known in Vancouver,  landing here at night in their  own boat, contacted me for place  to stay, I located them a spot,  but that is only a couple of people, who needing accommodation feel that the place needs a  hotel. Wonder what the solution  is, and where do we go from  here??  Well folks am going to slip  away for a couple of days, I  hope, and will tell you all about  it, if, and when, I get back.  There seems a million things to  do before one can get away, I.  am firmly convinced only thing  to do now, is put on my hat, and  walk out, leave everything as is,  and worry about it all when I  get back, and by golly that's just  what I am .doing.

In the interest of clarification and for the purpose of  laying bogies which sometimes arise to bother us, we  would like to point out. X  1. By buying your electrical appliances in Vancouver you save nothing. Costs are the same in our store as  they are in the city.  2. By buying in Vancouver you cannot buy better  than either Fairbanks Morse, Northern Electric or General Electric appliances. There are just no better made.  Prices are exactly the same here.  3. By buying in Vancouver and taking your product home, you run two risks. Your product may be  damaged in transit. That is then your trouble. When  your G.E. refrigerator, Silex Iron, Fairbanks Morse  pumps or any Northern Electric appliance needs repairing or service or just ordinary checking, these services cost you the ordinary run of costs which, as you all  know, just adds to your initial cost.  4. By buying your appliance in Vancouver you,  deny yourselves service goodwill that goes with every  electrical appliance or house wiring job that goes from  without our doors.  5. Sure, we will willingly and expertly repair your  electrical breakage and check your troubles for you,  irrespective of your buying from us or not. But why not  put us on the spot for these minor free repairs that  actually, without our expert service, costs you so much  when you have bought your appliance from Vancouver  or a store without the service backing which we  guarantee?  6. By buying your electrical  appliance  elsewhere  but here you are actually increasing your cost. This is  not an advertising "line". Stop and consider what we  have. said. You can see then that our service guarantee,,  is not something you can dismiss with a shrug.  If you are interested in saying money with the best in  appliances and backed by our reputation for service,  then call in'and discuss your buying with us.

Some cover business  transactions of millions of dollars, others are sued to settle  personal accounts of just a dollar or two. All over the country,  people in every walk of life find it convenient to carry a B of M  cheque book.  When you pay your bills by cheque, you avoid the time-  wasting round of stores or offices. The stubs give you an exact  record of how much you've spent, and your cashed and cancelled cheques, which your bank will return on request, serve  as your receipts.  It's safer, too. If you have the misfortune to lose bills or  coin, you may or may not find your money again. But you  can't lose the money in your B of M account, and no cheque is  worth a cent until you have signed it.  Tom Larson, manager of the Bank of Montreal branch at  Gibsons, cordially invite you to open an account at his office  Try out for yourself the merits of a B of M chequing account.  Advt.

We tak�� better care nf your car il f:  Atom Hits Here  DEVELOPMENT of a new motor oil perfected by use of  radio-isotopes produced by the  Atomic Energy Commission was  announced recently by Standard  Oil Company of British Columbia Limited.  The new oil will be marketed  immediately, Standard said, replacing the company's present  premium-type RPM lubricant.  In an extensive advertising program announcing the new oil,  the company states that compared with conventional oils it�� will  cut' wear-rate of critical engine  parts in half, and double the  low-oil-consumption life of the  average automobile engine.  Research engineers who developed this new lubricant used  a revolutionary test method  which employs radio-active piston rings in test engines. With a  Geiger Counter attached to the  test .engine, they were able to  maintain a constant check on the  amount of wear on vital engine  parts as it actually occurred under the most severe driving conditions. Thus, the research engineers were able to test many  types of oil in a relatively short  time, and more closely determine  which was doing the best lubricating job. In addition, tests  were completed in a matter of  hours, instead of the weeks required to do this research by  other   methods.  Among other features of Standard's new motor oil is increased  compounding which is said to  double protection against formation of carbon deposits, acid,  corrosion and varnish.  Reg Jackson, Standard's Agent  for the Peninsula, who attended  the meeting at Vancouver, reports that addresses were also  made by Ralph D. Baker, president, and E. A. Bence, manager  of marketing.

Anyway the family,  being a solid Gibsons family, sat  and waited. But ne'er did Granddad return. With a creak and a  swish he vanished in the limbo  of the woods, and the past, and  the years piled up and up until  they were much higher than  Grandma's bed with the result  they smothered Grandma and  the family got hold of Bert Cole  and he got some men to dig a  hole and Grandma was lowered  into it.  Still Grandad did not return  and the family grew up and the  little girl who was part of the  family got older and she married  a boy from Pender Harbour who  was renowned for his fishing  ability and his knack in making  stills. His stills were not the Hollywood kind.  The little girl grew and grew  and got married and grew and  grew. Her little baby started to  grow and still Grandad was missing. Then the little girl got sick  and her mother, who was once  a little girl with a long memory  said, "Slug," that was her husband, "Slug, we will have to  have some of that Elexir from  Lang's Drug Store in Sechelt and  we will have to have it soon or  our little darling shall pass with  the night."  Slug looked grim as he  thought of the journey ahead.  He looked crosswise too. He got  that from watching the stills  and looking for Constable Bob  Forrester to come up the trail at  the same time. ��  Nothing loth. Why  should he,  he hadn't lothed nothing for .  some years now. In fact he had  nothing to loth at any time. Slug  shrugged his shoulders and with  a devil may care half smile  thrown over his shoulder, that  was easy for /him, his mouth was  just below his ear, he headed for  the door.  Just as Slug reached for the  knob the door burst open and in  blew Grandad. A .lot greyer and  more bent and with a far longer  beard, it was still Grandad. The  first little girl, now sitting by  the bed of her little girl, leaped  up with a loud scream of delight, and ran toward the tottering old man.  "Why,    Grandad,"     she     half,  laughed, half cried, "where have  you been?" She threw her arms  around the old man's neck and  neatly hoisted the bottle of med,--  icine from his lapel pocket.  "This is just what we want to  save our little girL" She ran  over and poured a cupful into  the little girl who immediately,  began to get better.  Grandad looked tired but satisfied.. He looked around the  spare room and with a smile  said:  "When I started out, they wuz  jest astartin' to double flush the  highway. I jest couldn't return  until they'd finished with it. I  reckon it took them quite a  spell."
