Stronstad)  One night, in the Judean hills some nineteen hundred  years ago, shepherds were watching ovea? their,flocks by^ night,  no uncommon event in those far away days: While they were  busy with their tasks, something uncommon didTtafee place. The  stillness and the blackness of the night was suddenly and' unexpectedly shattered by a.gloriously radiant light and a visitation  of heavenly angels. /"���;'���'���".  ! Naturally, their hearts were filled (with fear and awe at  this strange happening. When the angel spoke to them, ,their  fear was dispelled and their awe deepened: thru' the message  he brought them. IChis was a message of comfort and hope, a  message both expedient and timeless.  The angel said Unto them "Fear-not, for behold I bring  you good tiding of great joy, which shall be to ail people. For  ' ��� ��� . I '������'.'-'   ' �����'    i   ���.' ''..'���'  unto you is born this day in, the city of David, a Savior, which  is Christ the Lord.'*: These words were.followed by a further  visitation of heavenly hosts who praised God saying "Glory  to God in the highest, and on earth peace; good will toward  men."  We have here a two-fold statement. "Good tidings" be-  cause the birth of a Savior is announced to all men. "Great joy"  (because peace on earth and good will toward inen, through Him  is promised.  i One rather suspects that with many, the desire for peace  on earth, good will toward men, has taken precedence over the  need of Christ, the Savior. Much as we desire peace, we cannot  have true peace, without Christ, the Prince of Peace.  i As we now approach another Christmas Season, we re  alize afresh that the message of the Heavenly Host is a message  so urgently needed during} these times of unrest, suspicion and  ill-will. Let .us then grasp this message by faith, and paWhtly.  await the day of its promised fulfilment.  To friends in Gibsons  ^Editor: Once more it is Christmas time. The days are  short, the nights are dark with snow on the ground and frost  in the air.  A blazing log fire is good company for, like a true  friend, it warms and comforts and entertains while making  few demands upon us in return. -    ���  Watching its dancing flames and glowing embers unlocks the treasure caskets of our mind to transport us once  again to divers places to hear friends' voices and recall their  faces; and bathe deep once more in the limpid wfaters of  permeating friendship that has become a part of our being.  These musings rouse us to send greetings to friendr  whom we can still hail and whose voices we hope again to  hear; and what better greeting could we send in these hectic  days of raucous propaganda than the restful message of  Patience Strong, penned by her many years ago:  FRIENDLY VOICES *   - ..  If you stand quite still in the heart of a wood  You will hear many wonderful things: . '  The snap of a twig, and the wind in the trees:  And the whirr of invisible wings. i  If you stand quite still in the turmoil of life  And you wait for the Voice from��� within* -  You'll be led down the quiet ways of wisdom and peace  In a mad world of chaos and din.  If you stand very still and you hold to your faith  You will get all the help that you ask;  You will draw from the silence the things that you need   Hope and Courage ��� and Strength for your task.  Include among these Friendly Voices one wishing you'  all a Happy Christmas and Prosperity throughout the New  Year. - ��� , ��� : -   >.   .   > ws  Arthur Jones  R.R. 1 Parksville, B.C.  For the twelfth year in succession  MERRY CHRISTMAS and HAPPY NEW YEAR  to all our good friends, on the Sunshmfe Coast  JOHN COLERIDGE REALTY  Georgian Block, Gibsons, B.C.  W&g?M  nsfmas  pits _  The first Christmas cards  were mailed in 1846 by Henry Cole, an Englishman! The  cards depicted a Victorian family assembled at the festive  board and bore the now-famous greeting: "A Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year  to you."  ���      ���      ��  One of the most plausible  versions of the origin of the  custom of y giving* gifts at  Christmas time is the one" saying it began in England.  In Tthe days of the knights,  it was a custom to hang kissing rings iri the great halls.  These rings were decorated  with mistletoe and beneath  them would meet the youpg  knights and ladies, each bringing Christmas roses to their  secret love.  ^yy^^l     ;  As times changed, so did  customs, ahd roses gave way  for other personal gifts at  Christmastime.  If you wish to get as much  "color" as possible in your  Christmas observance, here's  a novel idea.  Pine cones, small kindling  or chips can.be treated so as  to give off' colored flames  when burned in the fireplace.  Dipped or soaked in a sulution  of various salts of certain metals, cones or chips will burn  with a distinctive color. Cones  w,ill not readily absorb water,  so salts riiust be suspended in  a solution of turpentine.  yj.y?.-;.-^-:* ���������- 7��> ..-���-���* '  Compounds which produce  specific colors when burned  are: red-���strontium chloride;  green���barium chloride; blue-  green���copper oxide or copper  sulphate; orange ��� calcium  chloride; lavender '��� potassiv  um chloride and yellow ��� sodium chloride.  A second method ��� if only  cones are to be used ��� is to  dip' the cones in paraffin and  before the paraffin hardens,  sprinkle with tlie following  chemicals for desired color effect: green ��� copper sulphate;  red ������ strontium nitrate; orange ��� calcium nitrate and  yellow ��� sodium chloride.  *       *       m  The Christmas tree ��� whether large or small ��� should  be the centre of the decorations, place your tree in front  of a window, so that its bright  cheerful glow can be seen from  witiiin and without.  Decorate the tree with balls  of red, silver, blue and green  strands of popcorn and various  decorations that are saved  from year to year.  Be sure to hang a rope of evergreens, a spray or wreath on  your door ���- these signify to  many who pass your home that  you are celebrating this joyous season.  *      *     *  A rope of evergreen requires approximately four on  five yards of rope. The place  yo.u plan to use it will determine the exact length. Next,  you'll need several short  lengths of wire, short sprays of  evergreen, balls, bows, red  berries or bells. Place a bunch  of evergreen against the rope  and fasten in place with the  wire; repeat until the rope has  ���been completely-covered. -The  rope may be craped, over the  door frame, -mahtel, or along  the stair rail. Pick out other  spots where additional decorations, like berries, balls or  Tbells will add to the effective-  iiess of over-all appearance.  In any cases where water is found to be leaking, escaping,  or being wasted, on premises served by ���theyMuhieipal water  service, through broken pipes or other plumbing defects, water  ' ��.���   ���   ���  service will be turned off without further notice, and any costs  incurred will be charged against the property owner;  The Corporation of the Village of Gibsons Landing  IT'S THE POLICY  j. ������������������������������� .

The following suggestion  from Fire Chief Fred Feeny,  (carried out, would definitely  aid your fire.department in its  efforts to stop such an occur-  y rence here, it would also' aid  them in the plans of attack ion  a fire in your, property,  He suggests^that every own-  ��� er or occupier of ia 'building  (particularly (one  w^h7 more  ' -than one floor) supply Thim  vyith a floor plan ofThis build-  ihg. In this plan show sizes  a^d position of the entrance of  yeach room; any laundry chute,  T vertical ventilating and/or  heating ducts, etc. Also specify  Ration of bedrooms and location of the beds oi* any other  particular place where some  occupant may be in the event  of1 a night or day fire. Specify  tlie number of Adults, children,  irivialids, etc. occupying each  building.  His second suggestion stems  from the changes and growth  in populaton of the area. In  Yjth^ydays when your fire de-  ��� pertinent began we knew almost everyone in the area and  if someone phoned and excitedly shouted "Fire at the Joneses' " we knew where to go;  but now -we may not, so:  ' y On a second sheet put your  name, in the upper left corner  -then draw a plan showing  where you live from some :  prominent place 'such as the  high school; from the corner  of Cannery Road and the highway ... Bal's Block etc., and if  you live outside -the existing-  area of standpipes, show if  possible the location of a  source of water within 2000 ft.  of your building. Send them  both to Fire Chief Fred Feeney, at Gibsons.  In the event of a fire these  plans niay mean the difference  in whether or not there is a  loss of life or property.

He had shot the two cubs, north of Peterboro, when, turning around he found the mother bear about to spring from a  distance of five feet. He shot from the hip and ,by good luck,  killed the bear with the first shot.

They do not size  them by inch measurements.  Shoes or slippers are both  sized on the same scale, which  may be found in a pair that  fit. Inside the counter on shoes  is ai number, usually of 3 fig  ures. The middle one'indica  the size, and the last whether  even or half size. #0r example  395 would be a SVz shoe, while  390 would be size 9.   . ���  '  Trousers require two measurements, the waist in inches  and-the length in inches from  the crotch down tlie inside  leg seam to the bottom of the  leg or cuff. If the man isn't  handy, fold the trousers in half  at the top, measure in inches,  and double.  Men's shirts usually hawe  sizes stamped on them. They  are measured in inches around  the neck. In dress shirts, a  sleeve length is important,  mid is measured from the back  center of the collar seam to'  the wrist bone; 32, 33, and 34  are most common. Sports  shirts are usually sired small,  Imodium and large.  Socks are, of ten sized from  shoe sizes: 6 and 7 shoes take  10 and   10]/i socks; 8  and   9  shoes take 11 and ll:/2; 10 and  up take 12 and stretch ees,  which are available in sizes  10 to 13. Another method is to  take a freshly pressed sock,  and measure from tip of toe  to heel in inches,.  Jackets . and sweaters' are  sized by chest measurement  qf the wearer.  Pyjamas, Vince says, come  iin alphabetical sizes, based on  chest measurement: A-32 to  34; B-36 to 38; C-40 to 42; D-44  to 46; E-48 to 52.  Coast News, Dec., 20, 1956.  Gloves are sized by measur**  ing in inches around the widest part of the palm of the  hand, not including the thumb.  Sizes 8Vz to 10 are common.  (Lined gloves should be ordered half a size larger.  Mr. Prewer hopes these sizes will be a convenience to  shoppers, and that they will  help the oft-times hapless  wearer to be more comfortable.

The Forestry Branch, Department of Northern Affairs  and Natural Resources, estimates that more than 16,000,-  000 Christmas trees will be  cut this year, more than half  of them in the provinces bf  Quebec, Nova Scotia and British Columbia.  , Christmas tree production in  Canada has increased from an  estimated 10,900,000 trees in  1949 to 16,700,000 in 1955.  While domestic consumption  "has stayed:fairly, steady,, -in-  ifcreasing by 300,000 trees in  the 1949-1935 period, exports  have climbed steeply. Sales of  Canadian Christmas trees to  the. United: States increased  from7,400,000 in 1949 to 12.-  800,000 in ,1955.  Approximately a third of all '  Christmas trees sold in the U.S.  come from Canada. The big  U.S- markets for Canadian  trees are Boston, Philadelphia,  Detroit, Chicago, and New  York. Nova Scotia and Quebec  together account for 52 percent of all trees exported, New  Brunswick and British Columbia for 38 percent, and Ontario  for .nine percent.  Balsam fir, the most popular Christmas tree in eastern  Canada, is also the most popular tree for American export.  Canadian exports of balsam  fir to the U.S. have increased  from 46 percent of the total in  1949 to 70 percent in 1954.  Douglas fir, which gets the nod  from most people in western  Canada, accounts for  19 per  cent of the export total, Scots  pixie' for six percent, and  spruce for five percent.  The Canadian. Christmas  tree industry, although becoming more highly organized  each year, still offers opportunity for small but profitable  enterprise. Federal forestry officers point out that 50 to 60  Christmas trees can The grown  in the space and time required to grow.one mature spruce  and the value of the Christmas  trees would be four times that  of ythe timber tree,. .  1 T?*Stump culture" also helps  theT Christmas tree producer  byV reducing the time needed  for a tfee to grow to merchantable: size.

The needles, provide  ttheT best ;means of identification. Try. to roll the needles  between your fingers: if they  can be rolled, the tree is a  spruce; if the needles are soft  andwon't roll, then it is a,bail-;  feam.fir. Scots pine can be identified by its reddish-brown'  bark and short, bluish-green  {needles borne two in a bundle..  The needles of the white  pine come in bundles of five  and the red pine and jack pine  carry their needles in bundles -  of two. Red pine has long needles and a bark.that is light  red, and the jack pine can be  identifed by its short, yellowish-green needles and greyish-  brown bark.
