Vol ume 12, Number 15, April 9,  1959.  RAY  WHITING  RADIO-CONTROLLED  PHONE      2**_ft     GIBS0NS  24 HR. COURTEOUS SERVICE  are increase  George Hopkins, manager of  Sechelt Motor Transport, told  the Gibsons and area Ratepayers Association at Monday  night's meeting he was reasonably sure the Public Utilities  Commission would grant SMT  an increase of ten cents on  through fares to Vancouver  and return.  In connection with this the  Coast News has learned this  10 cent increase will not apply  to travel between Powell River and Langdale, meaning  travel between points in that  area. Mr. Hopkins said the increase was necessary owing to  rising costs.  Considerable argument arose  concerning an earlier bus from  Gibsons, various ratepayers  ���maintaining the present bus  leaving at 8.45 a.m. did not  give,them sufficient time to do  Fire dri  ire drives  out family  The Lloyd Bracket! home in  Sechelt was damaged by fire  around 2.45 a.m. April 6. The  fire apparently! started in the  kitchen and was noticed by  Wayne Brackett, aged 10, who  was feeling thirsty and went to  the kitchen for a drink.  He woke his, mother immediately and she and the eight  children in the family promptly found their way out and  sounded an alarm. Cpl. Payne  of the RCMP, next-door neighbor raised the Sechelt Fire  department who responded  promptly. The firemen got the  fire under control before much  structural damage occurred  but the contents and exterior of  the house received considerable smoke and water damage.  The father, Lloyd Brackett,  was away logging at Knight Inlet. The family was taken care  of after the fire by Mrs. Gordon Kennedy, neighbor. The  children range from 6 months  to 12 years of age. The household effects were insured.  Vimy night  Preparations for the Vimy  Day celebration set for Saturday are well underway. The  convenor is Mrs. Fraser. Some  tickets are?still available from  Bill Coffey, Sechelt.  Legion Selma Club rooms  are now enhanced by the addition of new drapes given and  made by the Ladies Auxiliary.  Harry Hill the welfare officer and Bill Sheridan were  right on the ball Monday, assisting Lloyd Brackett and his  family who were the victims  of a fire early Monday morning. Thanks to the promptness  of the. Volunteer Fire Brigade  damage was restricted but  there was much smoke and  water damage to their personal  effects and furniture. Ranks  of the branch are steadily expanding and vets wishing to  join the Legion should contact  Bob Quigley, manager of the  club or any Legion member for  information.  GET BOOMING GROUND  Norman Hacking, Province  Marine Editor reports the  booming grounds at Andy's Bay  on Gambier Island in Howe  Sound have been acquired by  Alaska Pine and Cellulose Ltd.  from  Coasal Towing Co. Ltd.  Crows safe!  At a meeting of Sechelt Village Commission held April. 1,  an application was received  from Sechelt Rod and Gun  Club for a crow shoot. Council  decided that the menace of  crows was not such that the  .shoot would serve any useful  purpose.  Costs were to be asked from  Sechelt Waterworks for installation and service charge on  two   additional fire   hydrants.  Accounts totalling $206.13  were passed for payment.  These included $139.61 for  street lights and travelling expenses of $48, the balance being incidentials.  business and get back home at  a reasonable hour. Mr. Hopkins  argued the SMT experience  with an earlier bus was such  that it did not pay so it was  decided to put one on at ari  hour which would be reasonable for the public from Sechelt to Langdale.  Various speakers pointed out  most of the bus load got aboard  at Gibsons and on that basis  Gibsons people should get better service. Mr. Hopkins admitted that 60 percent of the load  was picked up at Gibsons but  the company also had to consider the other 40 percent in  its schedule.  Some ratepayers wanted to  know why SMT did not run  special shopping day buses, say  once a month. Mr. Hopkins was  of the opinion local merchants  would not feel kindly towards  SMT if such specials were  started.  Wes Hodgson, president, was  in the chair and Mrs. Duncan  ���was secretary. It was revealed  in minutes of the executive  meeting that directors of the  association will visit village  commission meetings now and  again to see how matters are  coming along. The executive  was of the opinion in view of  the millic<r>;s being spent on  roads the highway to Squamish  should be pushed through as  quickly as possible.  Mr. W.S. Potter spoke on educational matters, the story of  which will be carried in next  week's issue. There were 35  persons at the meeting.  Glee club  on May 8  The B.C. Electric Ladies  Glee -Club-"whichr; will sing* in*  Gibsons on May 8, was formed  about 12 years ago. At present  there are approximately 35  members.  The 35 members are mostly  employees of the B.C. Electric  Company, but also included in  the ranks are wives of employees in any branch of the company and ex-employees.  The conductor, Leslie W.  Monk also conducts the B.C.  Telephone choir and a United.  Church choir in Vancouver.  The accompanist, Jack D.B.  Ellis, is well known in musical  circles in Vancouver.  The Ladies Glee Club has  given concerts in all parts of  British Columbia, as well as  on the Canadian Broadcasting  Corporation radio program  "Parade of Choirs." The choir  has sung at a number of institutions such as the B.C. Penitentiary,. Essondale, and the  B.C. Institute for the Blind.  The choir has been heard in  Stanley Park at the Sunday  afternoon concerts for the past  five years.  The Glee Club is sponsored  by the B.C. Electric Company  under its employee activities  program. Membership in the  choir is voluntary and no remuneration is expected. The  concert will be held in Elphinstone  High School auditorium  50TH   ANNIVERSARY  Mr. and Mrs. Arthur Barnes  will celebrate their 50th wedding anniversary on Monday,  April 13. Their friends are cordially invited to open house at  home from 2 to 4 in the afternoon and 7 to 9 in the evening.  They were married April 13,  1909 in Saskatoon and moved  to Gibsons in October, 1919.  Fashion show  There will be a fashion show  Wed., April 22 in the high school  auditorium with modeling of  spring and summer clothes for  women and children. Along with  it will be a can-can chorus which  created quite a furore in Roberts  Creek recently.  There will be vocalists, Mrs.  Lottie Campbell and Mrs. Swart/',  of Port Mellon also a door prize.  Refreshments will be sold.  Fashions from Sam Fladagar's  dress shop and Marine Men's  Wear also Tasellas Dress Shop  at Sechelt will be displayed.  Anne's Flower Shop will provide  floral decorations.  At an evening meeting of the  Board of School Trustees in  Gibsons, Monday, March 23,  letters from the village commissions of Sechelt and Gibsons were read, in which they  accepted the 1959 school budget, also a copy of a letter sent  to the department of education  by the Gibsons village protesting the proportion of costs left  to the local taxpayer.  The secretary was instructed  to answer a letter from the  Pender Harbour P.T.A. to the  effect that Lloyd's float at Garden Bay is the specified ferry  stop. Arrangements were made  for the transportation committee to meet with all bus opera  tors at the board office  The principals of the various  schools have been instructed  to keep the board informed on  the behavior and progress of  "seat-warmers." Every effort is  being made to assist these pupils, and the co-operation of  the parents is required if these  pupils are to continue their  schooling.  The board reviewed the correspondence regarding the  crosswalk signs at the Halfmoon Bay school, and will  again contact the department  of highways for improved safety signs for the school children  A letter, "Principal's Message to Students," written by  Mr. Buckley, was commentefc  on very favorably by the boar��  members and Mr. Jeffrey, aniJ  the secretary was instructed to  write to Mr. Buckley, his staff  and students, to commend them  on their excellent school news-letter.  Although the board has been  most concerned with the probable increase in the school tax  rate, necessitated by the ever  mounting operating costs, it  has been pointed out that any  additional increase in nexifc  year's tax, arising from the  forthcoming referendum, wiE  affect the mill rate to a maximum of one half mill, or approximately $1 for each $2,0��f  assessed value on propertj*.  CNIB asks    Anti-cow petition starts  for eyes  The Canadian National Institute for the Blind announces  two campaigns, one an essay  competition for high school students and the other an expansion of efforts to increase the  use of the eye bank.  This was revealed at a meeting of the local CNIB branch  in the United Church hall Wednesday night of last week. Ted  Henniker is the newlyi elected  chairman of the branch, Mrs.  Duncan, vice-chairman, Doreen  Hough, secretary and Mrs.  Ashworth, treasurer.  The essay competition which  is in the hands of the provincial headquarters seeks to discover what the young mind  knows about eyesight and the  eye bank program is for the  extension of the donor plan.  There will be cash prizes offered.  Donald H. MacLaren, public  relations officer of the CNIB  explained to the meeting what  was intended in the eye bank  plan. It was not money which  was sought but pledges from  people who are willing to donate their eyes for use in the  eye bank when they have passed on.  It is the intention of the local branch, to seek the support  of every organization on the  Sunshine Coast to take the eye  bank donor program as their  own project. It involves the  signing of cards which would  be filed for use at the proper  time.  To maintain a supply of corneas for use in one year it is  necessary, Mr. MacLaren explained, to have at least 12,000  cards on file. That number is  necessary in order to get a trickle of' corneas for use when  needed. Their use is mainly for  prevention of blindness rather  that the recovery of sight by  blind people. At present some  people have to wait from four  to six months for a cornea.  PTA ? ? ?  What should a PTA do?  What is a Parent-Teacher Association for? Are PTA's just  money raisers and entertainment arrangers? Will you give  your views on these questions  or on others concerning PTA's?  PTA's get many criticisms,  but not often at PTA meetings,  where they, would be honestly  welcomed and where something could be done about them  If you have any opinions about  the institution of PTA, whether  it should be encouraged or  abolished you can air your  views in a discussion on the  subject "What Good is a PTA?"  on Wednesday evening, April  15, 8 p.m. in Roberts Creek  school.

As a result it has been found  necessary under the act to circulate a petition seeking names  of those opposed to allowing  cattle roam at large in this area  The Board of Trade is the  spearhead in the circulation of  the petition and along with  non-members of the board,  homes are being canvassed in  the area outside Gibsons  tak  ing in lands at Soames Point to  the village boundary and Gower Point area also the lands as  far northwest as Seaview cemetery, r  Basis of the petition is to  have the area described as a  Pound district so roaming cattle can be taken care of.  An amendment was passed  by the legislature which adjourned recently which places  the following clause as a new  section in the Pound District  act: "A person who permits an  animal to run at large within  a pound district is guilty of an  offence and liable, on summary  conviction, to a penalty not exceeding $25."  Here  is  one  of   two  letters  from organizations in this dis-  trict which have expressed a  view regarding the Pound dis*-  trict idea. One is from the  Farmers' Institute, which follows:  Editor: Referring to your issue cf the Coa*..- News, April  2, we would like your correspondent, Olive Hartwell, to  know that the Farmers" Institute, after careful consideration  of the pros and cons in relation to a pound for the district,  aecided to remain neutral at  the present time.  ,Mrs. M.  LeFeuvre,  secretary  The second letter from SPCA  officials,  which   came   earlier,  appears on the editorial page-  Library expansion necessary  Gibsons Public Library has  readied the point where it  must expand. A growing population and greater demand on  library facilities are forcing  the jibrary to do something  * >bbu*t" it?   As a resu't the following letter is being sent to users of the  library in an effort to see what  funds can be raised:  "At the last annual meeting  held in January, an increasingly critical scareity^of space  was reported. Since "our new  building was occupied in 1955  the net book stock has increased over four-foid, and circulation is up 63%. Proposed plans  are for an addition equal in  s'ze to the present building to  meet this present need for  more space as well as requirements for the next four or five  years.  "The library membership fee  Powell River  charged in our library is almost the lowest in the province  Rather than increase this fee  to provide funds for building  purposes it was recommended  that the users of the library be  rsked instead to establish- a  building fund by voluntary  contributions If it can be shown  that such a fund has been sue-  LOST LAD  FOUND  joins s  hoot  On Sunday, March 29, a  large number turned out at  the Wilson Creek Club grounds  of the Sechelt Peninsula Rod  and Gun Club to see the invitational match between the  team from the Malaspina Club  of Powell River and the local  shooters. At the end of the day  the Sechelt Club found that it  was ahead in total points.  Among those shooting for  Powell River were Jack Lang-  bam, Dal Langham, Torchie  Kulai, Dick Donley, P. Wells,  Joe Graham, Slim Dewberry,  J. Schwandt and D. Leekie.  The Sechelt Club was represented by Ted Osborne, Dick  Gray, Butch Ono, Bud Fearn-  ley, Stan Tyson, Doug Lidster,  Pete Jackson, Al Jackson, Jack  Clements and Rudy Crucil. The  competition was in skeet and  trap shooting.  The next activity of the  club will be a trout fishing  derbyl for members at Sakinaw  Lake on Sunday, May 10, but  tickets for the summer-long,  open salmon fishing derby are  available at C & S Sales, Parker's Hardware and from any  member of the club. The rules  will be similar to those of last  year with monthly and grand  prizes. Get your ticket and get  in the running. It's too late after youve caught the big one.  Location of weigh-in stations  and boundaries will be posted.  Another new activity for this  club is the organization of a  crow-shooting derby. Details  of this will be available later.  These derbies are quite common in areas where crows become too numerous.  Ecbby Arnold, 12, of Victoria, visiting an uncle, Jack  Erown at Daybreak Bible camp  en Anvil Island, went exploring alone Tuesday afternoon  about 2:30 on March 30 an  became lost.  When he failed to show up  during the afternoon camp officials in Vancouver were notified and a search party was  organized. In the meantime  Gibsons RCMP and a party under Cpl. Ruggies hurried over  in Morris Nygren's boat. In the  party wer Morris Nygren, Jim  Smith, Dal Triggs, Jack Clement, John Matthews, Dick Hammond and Jim Boyce.  The Gibsons party continued  the search for the missing lad  until the Vancouver party arrived. The missing lad was  found at the top end of the island somewhat wet and tired  at 11 a.m. on the Wednesday  morning after spending a night.  The Vancouver party soon had  the lad under warm shelter  where it was found he was  none the worse for his adventure. His parents arrived soon  after to take him  home.  cesafully supported by those  using the library, then we have  good reason to believe that further assistance may be forthcoming from the Public Library Commission in Victoria, the  Gibsons Village- Commission,  and the Kiwanis club who  sponsored our present building.  It is therefore our objective to  have a minimum initial fund o*f  at least $250 derived from voluntary  contributions.  "This letter, which will be  the only approach made to you,  is to ask you, as a library user,  to lend financial support to  whatever extent you may be  able, be the amount large or  i-mall. It is felt that those who  derive the most benefit ��� the  users ��� will want to do their  share toward improving the  library  facilities.  "Will you kindly hand your  contribution to the librarian  when you visit the library next  week ��� National Library  Week ��� or send it to the library treasurer Mr. T.R. Adams. Gibsons. We know we  can count on your wholehearted support." f  Yours sincerely, / '  T.R. Adams,  Campaign  chairman,  Gibsons  Public  Library-  Board.  Smash window  Last Sunday morning, Bill  Parsons, manager of Peninsula  Logging Supply, found on  reaching the premises one of  the front windows completely  shattered.  Upon entering, he found an  empty beer bottle lying on the  floor. This had evidently been  tossed through the window by  vandals during the early morning hours. Damage amounted to  $50. RCMP have the matter  under investigation.  WILLIAM KRAFT  Funeral services were conducted April 5 at the Graham  Funeral Parlor for William  Kraft who died in Pender Harbour Hospital "/.onday, March  30. Mr. Kraft had been a resident of Roberts Creek for some  12 years and was well-liked  throughout the entire district.  Rev. D.   Donaldson  officiated.  Sechelt OAP  meeting April 14  A meeting has been called  for Sechelt Old Age Pensioners  to meet on Tues., April 14, in  the Canadian Legion hall at  Sechelt commencing at 2 p.m.  It will be recalled that the  last meeting ended without  having accomplished any business, on account of light failure. At that time Mr. H. Oke  from West Vancouver was all  set to display slides and films.  It is hoped he will find time  to visit Sechelt  once more.  It is hoped at this meeting  to elect officers so please attend and elect the best people  to the executive.  The minutes of the last B.C.  executive meeting will be read  as well as several items of interest relating to this branch  No. 71.

Flowers that bloom  The Sunshine Coast is. approaching its season of bloom.  ���Che Dogwood trees will soon burst forth. Fruit trees will shortly  _321 the air with smell of their blooms and early flowers, some  now blooming, will send out their cheerful message.  All this leads to a thought. Why not have more flowers  -���Even on roadsides. Roads Minister Gaglardi will not object to  Slaving flowers border roadsides providing present plans to keep  cows under control become an actuality.  In the event one does not want to fill roadsides with greenery and bloom for wandering cows, one could have some behind  ���fences providing someone does not find a way to open the gate  und let the cows walk in unmolested.  The idea of a "blooming country" is a thought worthy of  sonsideration even if it makes one mad at the thought of cows  browsing amongst daffodils, petunias, cabbage cauliflower, lettuce, broccoli and other succulent dishes for the cow now protected by those funny signs on Sunshine Coast roadsides stating  this forest area is open range country.  However, this dark thought should not scare off those nature loving individuals who believe justice will prevail and that  the lowly roadside and garden flowers will have a chance of  ���survival.  Election rolls closer  Premier Bennett's indecent haste at striving to be able  taext August to say the province has no net debt is doing so at  someone else's expense which takes the glitter off the idea right  at tlie outset.  It is apparent that Mr. Bennett has an election in mind  ar his haste at wiping out the et debt would not exist. If Mr. Bennett had close to his heart the idea of cutting expenses paid for  Dry public funds, a public for which he is so considerate on the  one hand and so thoughtless on the other, he would see that the  many millions of dollars spent by the various government commissions are subject to legislative scrutiny. They are just as  ���much government expense as; the net debt and to deny the legislature the right to examine the spending of these millions is, regardless of what any other government does, a denial of public  sight.  The British Columbia government has led the way with  i&gislation to make labor unions responsible for their actions and  sould just as easily lead the way in opening up the books of the  -rarious commissions for public scrutiny. After all it is public  ���money being spent and the public! still has rights even, we hope,  -33_der a Social Credit government.  It is possible Premier Bennett understands what is written in the British Columbia Social Credit league constitution.  Clause (b) of the principles and objects reads: To ensure responsible and effective democratic government in Canada, so that the  people will gain the results they desire from the management  Gif their own affairs. (Probably British Columbia is not part of  Canada.)  Claus (e) reads: To expose and oppose any attempts to  weaken the democratic institutions of the people by means of increased centralization of power. (If taxpayers of British Columbia  are people in the eyes of Premier Bennett he can expose and op-  Tpose right on his own doorstep.)  The happiness of your life depends upon the quality of your  -thoughts.  It's time enough to say it, when you know it to be true.  Next time you're talking "from the shoulder" ��� try a bit  __igher up.  To become a champion, fight one more round.

Editor: A correspondent in  your recent issue makes the  statement '-members .... of the  S.P.C.A. are against a pound"  and wants to know why.  The opinions of certain individual members do not necessarily indicate the policy of the  society The situation locally  simply is that the Sechelt Peninsula branch is not in the position to assume any responsibility concerning the operation of  a pound.  Eva M. Webb  Secretary.  ���Editor: In one of your recent  issues, Mr. Tony Gargrave,  MLA, makes certain claims  about public power which  need to be corrected.  These claims have also been  made by several other members  of the CCF party in British  Columia who are fortunate  enough to have -weekly newspapers provide free space for  them in which they are permitted fo espouse the cause of  their political  affiliations.  It is quite apparent from  scanning the weeklies in which  columns written by these members appear that the same material was used by all of them  for their columns in late February and early March, since  some of them are virtually  word for word with others in  their advocacy of the Socialist  policy of public power.     \  It is also apparent that this  information was supplied them  before the B.C. Electric brief  was submitted to the Royal  (Shrum) Commission in Victoria on March* 13. It was at  this sitting that previous comparisons of B.C. Power Commission and B.C. Electric rates  were successfully refuted by  the company and it was shown  that these comparisons, which  favored the Power Commission,  were misleading to the investigating tribunal.  This letter does not quarrel  with the statement that- the  B.C. Power Commission has  done, and is doing, a good job  in rural electrification, which  was the purpose for which it  was established. Issue is taken,  however, with the statement  that 'city rates (of the B.Ci Electric) are equal or greater  than the rural rates of the B.C.  Power Commission." \yy  In nine illustrations presented to the Shrum Commission  the consumptions used ranges  from 50 kwh to 1500 kwh.  Seven of these illustrations  showed B.C.Electric rates were  lower than the Power Commission under present rate schedules, while all nine were lower  in comparison to the rates the  Power Commission has announced it wishes to put into effect.  With reference to B.C. Electric rates and those in Seattle,  Winnipeg and Toronto, it is  naive to make a straight comparison of bills without ..considering the factors on each  system which control the cost  of supplying service.  These include the system  load factor, the density of population, the cost of generating  power and transmitting it by  high tension lines to the various commuities served, the  federal, provincial and municipal taxes paid, how much of  the plant and equipment used  in supplying the service has  been written off, and (in the  case of Vancouver and Victoria) whether customers must  subsidize through their electric  rates losing transit systems.  All this was made quite  clear in a painstaking study  presented to the Shrum commission by Dr. H.L. Purdy, our  executive vice-president. I am  enclosing a copy of this study  and if any of your readers  would also like to have one I  will be glad to furnish them  upon request.  If B.C. Electric rates ��� and  rates only ��� are to be compared with rates of cities enjoying some of the lowest power  costs in North America, then in  all logic the same yardstick  must be applied to B.C. Power  Commission rates.  In both instances, if one does  not enquire into the basic factors, the B.C. Electric and the  B.C. Power Commission suffer  in the comparison.  In other words, it is not a  question of whether an electric system is publicly owned  or privately) owned which decides how much service will  cost but, rather, the effects of  the various factors brought out  by Dr. Purdy before the Royal  Commission.  To the thoughtful person  there is a good deal to ponder  in some recent remarks of Dal  Grauer, president of B.C. Electric. Speaking about future  power developments on the  Columbia. Peace and Homath-  ko, he said:  "Co-ordinated development  .of these rivers) would mean  a continuous construction program that would spell prosperity for British Columbia for a  generation. And, of course, the  iarge amounts of new power  being put to use would be an  enduring stimulus to B.C.'s  economy.  "Such a program, on top of  Line other needs of this huge  and fast-growing province, will  require larger amounts of new  capital than B.C. has ever attempted to raise before.  "Most of the funds will have  to come from outside this province. Capital is, however, in  short supply throughout the  world. Whole continents, like  South America, Asia and Africa, are very short of capital,  with development held back;  and nowhere is it in abundance.  "It will only come to B.C. in  the required amounts if, from  an investment point of view,  we deserve it.  "There are vociferous sources of opinion which seek to convince the people of B.C. that  the cure for almost anything is  the socialization of some of  our basic industries. When one  considers the many things that  need to be done in this vast  and undeveloped province,  such advice is hard to understand.  "It would saddle the credit  of the province with huge obligations both in the present  and the future, thus raising  the cost of money for all provincial purposes, but it would  put no new developments under way and would create no  new jobs.  "It would lessen taxable capacity, and place enormous business  power  in  the   hands   of  OOR HYOR  To your jobs  RANE SPi  On your jobs  ? f ****->. -<*>v ��v T*^?>,, '  * i ^vg-*  If your lifting, digging and loading problems are scattered over a sizable area, you can realize big savings by  getting our Hydrocrane bid for the work.

Box 263  This minister  of finance  fiord it!'  SECHELT  Phone 11 Evening's 206  Mother's decision has not been arrived at lightly. Her peek  into her purse is anything but casual���for as family minister  of finance she is also keeper of the budget. She weighs every  important purchase carefully, because she has a dozen  places to put every dollar . . . and only so many dollars.  The same problem ��� a dozen places for every dollar ��� is a  familiar one to the Minister of Finance at Ottawa. His  budget is around six billion dollars. This very large sum of  ���money is spent through various government departments.  It's no secret how the Minister of Finance obtains this  money. He gets it largely in taxes from millions of Canadians like you. If he spends more than he gets from you, he  must turn around and borrow from you the amount he has  overspent... or else create new money.  The creation of new money is one factor that leads to inflation ��� when the dollar buys less and less. So, as a thrifty  Canadian, you are wise to ask government only for those  services you are willing to pay for . . . with taxes.  Personally you try to pay as you go, to live within your income. It's important that government try to do the same  thing.  You want to live well now and to realize all your ambitions  for the best possible future. That future is tied up with a  sound dollar ��� a dollar whose purchasing power you can  depend on.

An ideal location is  where they are exposed to the  morning sun, but screened from  the noonday sun by the branches  of trees or shrubs or by a building.  Out in the open, without shade,  foliage   is   frequently   scorched.  Port Mellon  By   Mrs. J. Macey  Mr. and Mrs. Carl Enemark  of Quesnel were guests of Mr,  and Mrs. T.

Tuberous begonias require a  mellow type of soil, rich in organic matter and well provided  with drainage. Ordinary garden  loam, a liberal dressing of an  inch or more of sharp gritty  sand, and three or four inches  of well rotted leaf mold or horticultural peat will provide a suitable type of soil. This should bs  thoroughly dug to a depth of  about six iniices.  Begonia plants, ready to set  out in the garden, may be purchased from growers and garden  supply - houses towards the end  of May or early in June, after  danger of frost is _ over. Many  home gardeners, however, prefer to grow their own plants ir.  the house. In the home with  south or southeast windows, it  is not advisable to start the  tubers before the middle of  March. With ordinary window  light, tubers started in February  usually produce tall weak-stemmed plants which fail to do  well when moved into the garden.  Tubers should be started by  setting them with the concave or  flat side up in a garden flat or  planting box that holds two or  more inches" of damp, firmly  packeo*" peat or sphagnum moss.  This flat box should be placed  in a warm, location with bottom  heat, if possible, for a couple  of weeks or until the tubers develop a small root system and  make some top growth. Then  they should ba carefully removed from the flat and individually  potted into 4 inch clay or fibre  pots, using a fibrous sandy compost.  "When there is no further risk  of frost; plants may be set out  in the garden or flower bed. If  clay pots  are used, remove the  plants from  the  pots  with the  ball   of   roots   and   place   deep  enough to cover the tuber with;  about   oriie  inch of soil. When  planting, the lower leaf  should  face   the   front of the bed and  plants   spaced   about  18 inches  apart. If plants are crowded, the  control of mildew in periods of  humid weather is more difficult.  There   are    many   forms    of  tuberous begonias, most of which  are used for bedding and in garden* planting? Plant breeders in  Great    Britain    and    California  have developed a number of very  fine   varieties   which  are much  superior to the ordinary garden  types, but these named varieties  are  somewhat more   expensive.  The    pendulous    begonias    are  recommended   for  hanging  baskets on the north or east side of  the house.

To prevent apple slices from  discoloring after you have peeled them, dip the slices in lemon,  orange ,or pineapple.  If you like to can or freezze  apples at home, choose tart,  slightly underripe apples for  canning, but for freezing, mature  apples  taste  best.

J* _*--_,_.* UJ-M-Sift-'llON  One of the loveliest poems ever  written about children was by  W. H. Longfellow. What a picture is conjured up by this  sianza:  "O, little feet, who through  long years,  Must wander on through hope  and fears.  Must ache and bleed beneath  your load,  We, nearer to tlie wayside  inn,  Where toil shall cease and  rest begin,  Are weary, thinking of your  load."  A man never has a greater  compliment paid to him than  ihat children like him. Children  have a keen intuition and they  are attracted to those who love  them. "When you get to heaven,"  said the poet Francis Thompson,  "Look for me in the nursery, yo.  will find me among the children."  Somebody asked the soap  manufacturer, Williams, why he  continued to spend vast sums of  money every year oni advertising  soap. His reply was sagacious  and sensible. "I do ��� it because  there is a fresh crop of shavers'  every year and they don't know  about my shaving cream."  No doubt it is true that every  year, thousands of young fellows  with six or seven whiskers, get  their first shave. There was sagacity and business sense in  that remark.  *4��     'j*     ��������  A crowded train was speeding,  westward across the American  continent. The day was hot. The  car was ill-ventilated, and the  passengers, who were mostly of  foreign birth, became fretful  and" restless. At one station a  woman and a five-year old girl  got on.,the child had a toothache  and,,...was crying bitterly. Now  crying is infectious, and soon  there were half a dozen children  in tfiat car crying loudly enough  to set the already distracted passengers' nerves on edge.  "Tne mother of the five year  old girl tried to comfort her by  saying that they would soon be  at the dentist's and he would  extract the naughty tooth. Instead of producing the desired  effect that remark caused the  little girl to scream louder than  ever, Then two babies joined  the chorus, bringing the vocal  number up to nine. The mother,  who was evidently a foolish woman, said. "Jenny, if you don't  stop crying, I'll break your  neck! Jenny, more terrified than  ever, ran, dwn the aisle of the  car.  She stopped at a seat where  a man with kindness written on  every feature of his face was  sitting. "Tell me, Jenny," he  said, "Where does the tooth  hurt?" She pointed to her swollen cheeck. I'll soon take that  toothache away," he said, gentl*/  lifting the little girl upon his  knee   and  stroking  her cheeck.  After  a while he  asked. "Does  it still ache, Jenny? "  "Not   now,   but   do   it   some  more," she asked. Soon the child  fell asleep, and the man carried  her to her mother's arms.  >p    #    *  The mothers of other crying  babies looked at the man expectantly. He accepted the challenge- He took a tiny Lithuanian  baby, and after he soothed her  awhile and gave her a drink, shi  quieted and fell asleep. His next  attempt was with an Italian baby,  and that infant ��� from the land  of Caruso ��� shrieked so loudly  that he trought he was going to  be defeated and lose his repu-  tatiin as a soothing syrup. However, patience conquered, and  at "last young Italy's cries were  changed to low crooning, and  then asleep.  When the car was quiet, and  everybody feeling happier, a  lady approached this man and  said, "Pardon me, sire, but are  you an M.D.?"  "No madame," he anjswered,  "I am a L.L.B. The lady looked  puzzled. "I never heard of that  degree," she said. "What does  L.L.B.  mean?"  "Lover of Little Babies," he replied.  That man's, name was Edward  Steiner, "and he had come to  America    from    Austria    many-  years previously. He was a lover,  not only of little babies, but of  ali mankind. He devoted his life  fo promoting good will among  all nations and classes and religions. He used to say that the  hatred in the world was due  chiefly to the fact that people  did no. understand each other.  And who will say he was not  right?  *    *    *  Our quotation is from Isaiah  40:11: "'He shall feed His flock  hke ajshepherd, and gather the  lambs_with 'His arms and carry  them In His bosom."
