Madeira Park ��� and Francis  Peninsula area was discussed  and Mr Royal Murdoch was  elected to orgnize a committee  from residents in those areas  to deal with what will be a  necessity in the future.  The building of a road from  St. Mary's hospital to Irvines  Landing, adjacent to the coastline also came under consideration. " Some months ago ^petition viras sent to the government by 64 residents, asking ,  that this road be put through.  As there are those who '.would  appose this project, the matter  is bf great interest to the  whole community.  The lighting of part of roadways, docks and floats- wais  also discussed.

These are de\6elopihg rapidly, and an adequate water supply will be essential for their  w^Krbemg. The Government  Dept. has informed us that as  a Board of Trade, by reason of  our constitution, we cannot  take any further action in the'  matter, but that a Committee  of the residents and taxpayers  of those areas should be formed, to deal with it.        . \7y  There are not a few communities who are short of an  ample water; supply today,  for their residents and businesses, because they failed to*  .obtain Water Rights on a po-  tential source .while it was a-  ^VailabJeV to  We' therefore have elected  Mr Royal Murdoch to organize  a committee- to handle - this  matter, aad ask that all who  are interested N should contact'  him with a-view to obtaining  this reservation.

Gibsons is now a village of very close to 1,000 persons, so  the recent census figure reveals. ��� ,    ��� ���  This makes the garbage situation, in Gibsons, even more  �����cute than it was previously and we, are now no nearer having a garbage disposal unit.  The dumping of garbage promiscuously is-a subject talked  about just like the weather is talked about. No one does anything about it, except continue to dump garbage promiscuously  There are various places where mattiy years from now, it  will be regarded as a wise move for having filled in various  Iioles but to try and get such a venture started is another matter.  There are too many blocks thrown in the way. People beqome,  sticky over the word garbage and protest any action which  might seemingly hurt them. It is quite likely that before Gibsons has its garbage dump someone will more than likely get  Hurt.  . This is an example of the attitude towards    garbage    disposal in this part of the country:  The entrails of a cow were left in a ditch on the lower  raad. The weather was still warm and the flies buzzed around  at great rate. Apparently someone phoned the police who said  it:was none of their affair and when the health-or sanitary  inspector was called he seemed to have no way of taking a  shovel, digging a hole and burying it but after several days it  was finally disposed of.  A lot of taxes are   spent to keep us in a heaftthy   sanitary  condition but it would, appear that salutation thinking is gener-,  ally on a much higher,plane than a disposal! area for   Gibsons  _r the burying of a cow's entrails quickly., .   .   ���  This is the barge which carried and laid 80,000 feet .of  power cable between Powell  River and Texada Island.

Each person  had about the same average.  His theory was discounted,  but I have often thought there  was a good deal of truth'in it.  Outwardly we vary a great  deal, but one wonders whether  we differ much after all.  Years ago I spent a day in  an institution for the deaf and  dumb ��� chiefly children,  There were about 600 and  ,they seemed very happy and  light-hearted. I asked the  principal if he had taught else-  IIMBEH WANTED  We Cruise and Estimate  '        and PAY CASH on Signing  .-���''��������� the Contract  SUCRE  LUMBER CO  SA.WMILLS  Are Our Business!

He told me of two  schools where he had served.  I said 'How do these handicapped children compare with  the normal children?-' He replied: 'These youngsters are  happier.-'  I have visited institutions  for inflicted people often and  I have been amazed at the  'cheerfulness of the inmates���  blind, deaf or a dozen other  misfortunes, yet there was  very little depression,. Captain  Bakers, in charge of\work for  the blind, once told me that  there was more laughter a-  mong blind people than elsewhere and after spending an  evening with them, I was inclined to believe him.  *     ��     *  I spent >a weekend in an'  Ontario town and on the Monday I went to see a war casualty, He lay on a couch unable to move much, but able  to turn the dials on the radio..  I spent an hour with him and  his good      humour a-  mazed me. After we left, I  mentioned this to the minister. He said: 'In spite of his  affliction he is the happiest  man in town/  Now over and against this,  we have the statement by the  American Bureau of Suicides  that the largest percentage of  those who take their own lives  are from wealthy families.  The list of millionaires who  take their own lives is a long  and impressive one. Most of  us: feel that we could have  more''material wealth and we  would be much happier, but  the facts all point in the opposite direction.  *..-    �� ���   .*'..���.'.���.  ' Is sickness always a calamity? Are there siny compensations? As 7a rule there does  not sjeern. to be a compensation  of any kind. Those stricken  lament that it could not possibly have come at a worse  time. There are a hundred  things waiting to be done,  most of which are already  overdue. But    even    sickness  has its compensations and a  little patient thought reveals  them. There are blessings that  come to those laid aside which  they never would have known  had they remained' robust and  vigorous. What a wealth of  truth there is in these lines  of Theodocia Pearce. who  knew such suffering as few  rare called-upon to bear:  The rainbow never bends  over the sky  ��� Until the storm is done;  <The twinkling stars are never  seen on high  Until the set of sun.  The      lighthouse sends    no  gleam across the sea -  Till night is on the land;  Nor did I find' a joy-to   walk  with me  Till pain had gripped my hand  Is there any rainbow bending across the sky when sickness comes? At first it seems  all darkness, but it may be  that there are twinkling stars.  It is not easy to sum up and  classify spiritual; blessings,  but there are some compensations of sickness which stand  out clearly.  The godless philosophy of life  is mistaken, It may be beyond  our. minds to grasp the truth  but life is more than meat and  the body" more than raiment  The supreme things of life are  those of the spirit. Many of  the happiest people in the  world are those whom we call  afflicted.
