Some, perhaps, feel grateful  for the bountiful supply of holly growing in the 'district.  Others, being always used to  the surrounding forest, take  all tree& for granted.. Like Tbp-  sy, they just grew.  That iriight beyso with the  tall firs on the mountain side,  the cedars, the alders and the  arbutus -but not so with the  holly. Tlie holly in bur village  is the result of'one man's love  of trees. That man was George  "Gibson who ' settled here in  1886 and gave his nanie tb the  district. At that time, all provisions were brought from  '"Vancouver by sail or row boat.  It was on one of these trips into Vancouver for provisions  that George Gibson found himself with time on his hands, so  from sheer curiosity he put the  hour or so. in at an auction  sale of unclaimed articles of  the C.P.R.  Many strange things go under the hammer at an auction  sale of unclaimed and lost  goods. It's perhaps a bag of  workman's tools, a packing  case of bedding, or an old  wicker travelling bag reminiscent with the old world travellers of that day.  On the day of George Gib-  .T'-n's visit to the auction, something a little different to tlie  usual assortment of unclaimed  goods went under.the hammer.  It was a shipment of small  4rees consistng of English holly, red English hawthorne, lau-  ral and laburnum. The description of this bundle of unclaimed trees stirred nostalgic memories of the English countryside. When the provisions  were loaded aboard the sail  boat, so were the trees.  They thrived ori George Gibson's property, ] and through  the years, seedlings have been  transplanted until today, some  sixty years jaterymuch of our  scarlet berried holly, the thick  laural hedges, the laburnums  with their golden icicles and  the red hawthorne stand as a  monument tb ��� Mr. Gibson's  love of nature and a chance  visit to an auction sate"."  1                        The DeMolay Association Will Sell       '             ^'  :^:^m0ai0:0iM0^  >- yimex^xw: ������ ^M-mm %  Super-Valu Parking Lot   "  J, Sclra tz & S & S Service Stnf  ������;������.'-���'���   '��� '    -������������ ��� ���-^  1  ...

Centennial committee/has  been released for use by all  B.C. Newspapers and local  Centennial groups to indicate  official responsibility for mak- r  ing 1958 B.C.'s "biggest year  ever".  It is hoped all the .91 weekly and 11 daily papers in the  province .will adopt the official crest for masthead use dux- T  ing Centennial year. Jt will be  carried on all official documents also. The crest is'protected by Legislative Act and  (may only be used with written  permission of the B.C. Centennial committee. Any unauthorized; use is subject to penalties provided by the act.  Reasons for the crest go  deeper than mere advertisement.

The' official crest will guard  against such things as merchants mistakenly buying advertising in -souvenir publications which are actually in no '  way connected -with official  planning for the 1958 100th  birthday "of the province.

Although he, has done the beautiful illuminations on scrolls  bearing welcome addresses for  visiting royalty, he has painted the compelling scenery of  B.C. on hundreds of travel folders and other far-reaching  '* materials; nothing ever to  come from his hand before  will likely ' become so well  known as his design of the Centennial crest.

A blown fuse is a warning  that circuits are overloaded or  defective, officials said. Makeshift fuse and tampering are  major causes of destructive  and tragic fires in the home.  Safety experts recommend  the following precautions for  the winter months:  1. Employ only skilled electricians for installation and  maintenance of wiring and op-  pliances; make sure circuits  are heavy enough to carry  peak loads.  2. Overloaded circuits and  use of improper fuses or substitutes is hazardous.  3. Never string wires under  rugs, over hooks or in exposed places where constant wear  will make them dangerous.  4. Choose only recognized  brands when buying appliances, and preferably ones bearing the Underwriters Laboratory seal of safety.  5. Never leave electric iron  with current on. ;  6. Be on the lookout for  breaks and signs of wear in  lamp and appliance cords.  30 attend big  convention  Harvey   Walters,   presiding  minister for the  congregation  of Jehovah's Witnesses, reports  30    district    residents, ^were  among  the  1148 persons who^  were   present   at   their   three-  day   convention   in the' West'  Vancouver Senior High school .  for   the  talk   entitled   "What  Will   Armageddon   Mean   For  You?"

HOME SWEET HOME  John Howard Payne was  ! born in Boston on June 9, 1792.  His father was principal of a  small ���"teaching.'- academy in  that city. He was one of a large  family, and from his earliest  days had a close acquaintance,  if not with actual poverty,  with something very near to it.  When he was fourteen years of  age he was sent to Union College, Where he earned a little  toward his expenses by writing poems and essays for neighboring newspapers. Ih October  i8Q(>, he wrote a poem entitled  ''Honied which expressed his  intense affection for his people  and   a  great   longing to   see  more of them.  ...���'*��  His father's failing health  made it necessary for the lad  to" launch * out into the world  when he was less than sixteen.  He was at that time the oldest  living son.in the family. At  seventeen / he .'went on to the  stage, but soon abandoned the  life of an actor and tried to  SLipport himself by his writings.  In 1813 he went to London,  ' and some time afterwards on  to Paris. The greater part of  the remainder of his life was  -spent between these two cities.  ;. ;He tried to make his living as  va playwright,   and   altogether.  : wrote   more   than   60   plays,  some of which were quite suc-  TcessfuU He lived a life filled  with   ^strange      vicissitudes,   '  sometimes being in fairly good  y circumstances, but more often  7 than not suffering from such  Tifinancial distress that it developed in him a sad ancT melancholy strain.  ���Ay. J   ' *    '*     ���  '     In 1820   he took   over the  > management   of 7 the   Sadler  ���VWells j^Theatre ih';.London. He  7 was hopeful of dojjng well, but  the   venture ' failed   dismally  :and !2ayne was committed to  .Fleet jstreet prison in London  7 until |he   could jTsatiafy   the  claim^of-his cre3pc*sl' He wais ";  *s nt^bft'^ejtisl '-287 years^of -;'  -��� '"*-';:tj.'7 .I   ' i-;-   "'-" i  age and of a kindly and extremely sensitive disposition.  He-felt keenly the humiliation  and disgrace of having to write  to his home iri America from  behind prison walls.  He was  permitted to live in  the "district known as "Rules of the  Fleet",  and secured  lodgings  in an alley known as "Naked  Boy Court". Fortunately * many  of the letters written by Payne  to   his - relatives   in   America  have been preserved, and it is  possible to gain an insight into the gentle soul of this songwriter during these distressing  days. .  ,_;  ��'_.*������-*-  On May 8, 1828, his musical  play named "Clari, the Maid  of Milan," was produced at Co- ,  vent Gardenr-fn London^; Eng- 7  land. In this play hisTconiposi-  tion,   "HomelySweet.yHcmie^' r  was sung: for .the  first|Ttime.'''���  While the piayT&el|T\vis not  a great success, -'theysorig.-.was.7  very   well   received.   "Clari"'  was produced in New York in  November  of the same year,  and    "Home,   Sweet    Home"  quickly  attained  great  popularity.   It- was   sung   in   the  streets   and   whistled   every-  vrhere. It   brought   snormous  profits to the publishers, but,  owing perhaps to carelessness  -*on the part of the author, it  brought him practically riotfe*  '.ing  For many years after the  song was written, Payne had  the strange experience of hearing it sung in homes as he  passed along the streets, or listening to it being rendered by  11.. -i -r��� ��� ..... _ \... y  Orchestras, yet he, the author  of the masterpiece, had scarce  enough to keep body and soul  together.-He returned to America practically penniless, and  tried many  projects, none bf  which seemed to prosper. He  went  as  American   consul   to  Tunis,, returned   to   America,  then  accepted  reappointment.  He remained through life kindly, genial and industrious, yei  ���seemingly followed by misfortunes which  dogged his footsteps   almost  to the end.   He  died at Tunis on April 10,1852.  *      *      ��� ���  Thirty-one   years   later,   in  1883, his coffin was disinterred and carried to  the little  protestant   church   in.   Tunis,  where the chancel window is  inscribed with  his name! As  his remains were brought into  the little building, an Englishman at the organ played softly the air of  "Kfame, Sweet  Home,"   while   an   American  i lady sang.,the; song, with deep,  -feeling.
