One of the poorest hunting season's  ever experiencec came to a close at the  middle of the month. Poor visibility  and bad weather accounts for this to  some extent.  Mra.

All points in the 'valley were represented at the twenty-fifth annual concert  of Canyon school, which was held on  Thursday evening >t the community  hall. The largest.crowd ever seen at the  ball was i*** evidence, the building "being  taxed to its utmost 'capacity.  The programme listed 26 item"* which  along with the Christmas tree and Santa  Claus feature, took three hours to complete, and it was certainly one of the  best ever staged at Canyon, A. Spencer  of the. trustee board, made a satisfactory  chairman, with Jas. Bateman playing  the role of Santa Claus at the close of  proceedings:  Each one of the items on. the lengthy  programme was well carried out, and  great credit is due Principal Hunden and  Misses Magee and Knott, of? the teaching  staff, for the very careful training given.  75 pupils were on the platform for the  choruses.  What appeared to please the audiencs  most of all was tbe dancing of the Virginia reel by pix girls and aix boys, and  the singing of "John Brown's Body by  the school. The duetts by Mary Nygaard and Borg Olson, Jean Spencer and  Iris Bothamley. also the wolo, "Star of  the East," by Ethel VanAckeren. were  very -popular. The latter possesses a  charming soprano voice. Christmas  Carols by a choir of 24, voices were well  rendered. The programme concluded  with a piay, ,41985 on Review," by a  number of the pupils.

Business and pleasure were happily .  combined at the December meeting of  Creston Hospital Women's Auxiliary  on Thursday afternoon. After the  regular business was disposed of those  who had been associated with the losing  side in tbe earlier-in-the-year membership' drive played hosts to the winners at$  a social featured by musical numbers,  tap dancing and the serving of an  excellent lunch.    -��������� ' '  The president, Mrs. R. Stevens, was  in the chair, and in the absence of Mrs.  Chas. Murrell, the minutes were taken  by Mrs. Hay_s. 40 members were  present along with three visitors. The  date of the ar nual meeting was set. for  January 13th, and the regular meeting  next month will be on the 16th. Mrs. J.  P. MacDonald and Mrs C. H. Hare  were named to audit the treasurer's  books.  The report on the recent hope chest  raffle showed the undertaking to have  been highly satisfactory financially, a  profit of $198 was shown on the undertaking. All who donated articles for the  chest as well as those who had helped  witb the ticket selling were given a vote  of thanks.  Mrs.     Hare   reported   for   the    last  quarterly meeting of the valley hospital  auxiliaries central executive which asked  that each auxiliary be sent a report of  the   monthly   meetings of the hospital  board    of directors.   The   central .also  recommends   that in  future instead of  setting apart a day for receiving donations of fruit, etc., that a collection  of  donations of   this   sort   be made. 7 The  central anvised  that  Canyon  auxiliary  would buy an electric baker and kitchen  1- stools for the hospital.      ,  {.Fpr the buying committee Mrs, Jas  Cook reported a wheel "chair, Kelly pad  and   twq   chairs   would   be   purchased.  There bad been donations of three bottle  Covers^hree pairs bed socks and white  rags from Boswell, along with four vases  from adbnation by-Mre J. G. Abbott of  Wynndel.   Bstfingr for two quilts  had  been purchased.    The secretary was instructed     to   suitably   acknowle ge    a  donation     of     $25    from   Mrs.* Chas.  Murrell.   This   amount   is   the   year's  salary   to   Mrs.    Murrell   as secretary-  treasurer,  which   cheque  she endorsed  and returned, asking that  the funds be  used for the purchase of something needed at the new nurses' home  After the business was disposed of  there was a very enjoyable half-hour of  entertainment put on by the membership drive losing committee. Most of  the numbers were those presented at  Mrs. Johnston's music pupils*' recital a  few daya previous. The song, "In a  Gipsy Tea Room," was dramatized with  Carolyn Jones and Margaret Donaldson  as gipsy waitresses and fortune tellers.  Donald Weir and Jean Pridham were the  romantic tea room occupants. A number of the girls from Trinity Church  choir provided the vocal musical background for this number*  A recitation by Louis Johnston was  well received. Marguerite Grant and  Edith Johnston favored with a piano  duett. Probably the most popular item  of the afternoon was the tap dancing by  Beryl Palmer and Maisie Ferguson. Ac-  companiasts for the afternoon were Miss  Helen Moore, Mrs. W. Fraser and Mrs.  J. E. Johnston. Tea was served at the  close of proceedings.

Q  The Canadian Wheat Problem  In a recent article a suggestion was made that the time is ripe to  make efforts to induce the consumer in Great Britain, and particularly In  England, to demand a better quality of bread, in anticipation that the crek-  tion of an appetite for a quality loaf would naturally result in greater sales  of Western Canadian hard spring wheat in Canada's best, though, -restricting market.  The suggestion was based on evidence that this market is narrowing  due to a growing taste for more expensive and exotic substitutes for the  staff of life throughout Great Britian generally, fortified in England particularly, by ..an appetite for bread of a lower protein content than is contained in flour manufactured from the hard spring wheaf for which the  Western prairies is the natural habitat.  Since that time further and more potent evidence has come to hand,  which not only confirm the statements anent a disquieting trend In the Old  Land which, unless stemmed, is bound to adversely affect the interests and  welfare of the Western Canadian prairies but, if anything, tends to show  that the situation is even more alarming than it might have appeared at  first blush. In view of the great importance of this market, the life blood  in fact, of Western Canada, no apology is needed for again reverting to the  subject in such short tune.  The confirmation of this highly undesirable (from the viewpoint of  Western Canadian citizens, rural and urban alike) condition existing in  Great Britain and other European consumer countries, comes from Sir Francis Floud, British high commissioner to Canada, who, about the middle of  December, sounded a warning note to the general effect that Canada is in  serious danger of losing the British and European.markets. He gave three  principal reasons for his dire assertion and they are as follows:  1. The spread in price between Canadian and Argentine wheat.  2. The growing demand in Great Britain lor fancy breads which are  composed of 90 per cent. Argentine soft wheat and 10 per cent. Canadian  hard wheat. '  3. The falling population of the civilized countries of the world.  In his comments before the Commerce Club of the "University of Toronto, Sir Francis Floud drew a dark picture of the outlook, in which he  pointed out that in recent years the proportion of Canadian wheat taken by  Great Britain has been dwindling steadily while the price spread between  Argentine and Canadian wheat has been widening, to the detriment of the  latter in a country which is noted for the policy of its industrial and_commercial interests of buying in the cheapest markets.  "I am sorry to say this, gentlemen," Sir Francis is quoted as saying,  "but the outlook for Canada as an agrarian nation is both bleak and difficult,  and until economists solve the present baffling international trade problems  the future for Canadian wheat is a very serious problem."  Practically on the same date news despatches announced at least a  temporary removal of one of these barriers to continued losses in the British market, in reports of crop failures in the Argentine, coupled -with the  announcement that the Argentine government had fixed the price of its  wheat at 90 cents a bushel, placing it on a parity -with the better quality  Canadian wheat. This resulted in a sudden demand for Canadian wheat  and an immediate advance in price.  "While this, of course, is satisfactory, while this situation lasts, it should  Va.������_    <���������"*<?> Svi-t-^s-l     *-x\ iir    -t-l>���������*���������������-    "if*    ������v%������������***������    rf-������v*1**t������    Tr-mO.    o      _-.QTv_'r_*-v**>*i_.������*i-r    oifitofinvi    -n v**.***!    cs"V������*\i"i1^    '���������"i*****.'!"

Indeed, with the prices of Argentine soft wheat and Canadian hard  what more closely in balance it might well be argued that there is no better time than the present to demonstrate to the British consumer that it  is possible to produce the most tasty of fancy breads from Canadian wheat  and to cultivate a demand for high quality along with devices for tickling  the palate.  In considering this phase of the problem it should also be borne in  mind that a short crop in the Argentine now may be followed 12 months  hence by a bumper yield in that country and that the Arrgentine government's action in pegging the price of its wheat at a fairly high level may be  renounced at any time, even before another crop is ready for the market.  A further factor in the situation is the likelihood of substantial, perhaps  heavy wheat crops being reaped in Western Canada in the next few years,  in which event this country will require expanding, instead of the recent contracting, demands for her wheat in the consumer countries. Authorities  declare that the drought of the past few years is definitely broken, and with  the grasshopper menace receding and a promise of a rust resistant wheat  in commercial quantities within the next year or two, there is reasonable  belief for anticipating that Western Canada will have more wheat to export  than has been available in the past few years.  The only alternatives to creating consumer demand are to cultivate new  markets or to devote attention to production of other commodities. Perhaps the solution of the problem is to bo found in a combination of all.  Problem For Hungary  How To Bring Back Echo Whicb Has  /:���������.,��������� '"Been Lost  All the "world loves an echo, and  Hungary i3 mourning a lost love. The  echo was last heard at Lake Balaton,  where tourists used to put it through  its paces and listen with delight when  it repeated, with additions, their  lightest utterance. This was an industrious echo. Nothing seemed to  exhaust it while the supply of tourists lasted, and it would go on cheerfully all day long without a pause.  Then, as if weary of well-doing, it  dwindled and died. The inhabitants  of the region, disturbed by the loss of  revenue, invited professors and scientists to say where it had gone, and  what the possibilities were of bringing it back.  Few things a^e more elusive than  an echo. A lost echo is hard to recover, but the scientists were not to  be defeated. ���������> The professors suggested that tho trees growing in the  neighborhood had first blanketed the  sound and finally, as they grew up,  had stifled it. But a delicate problem is now set to those who would  call the echo back. The trees might  be cut down and the echo yet be shy.  Then the lake would lose both its  echo and its trees.  Proves Earth Is Round  Seeking Information  , ., m  Halifax Business And Professional  Men Studying Social Credit  A number of Halifax business and  professional men have organized a  group for a study of the principles of  Social Credit, according to Edward  S. Dixon, manager of the Halifax  tourist bureau.  He denied a report that a new  political party for Nova Scotia was  in the making. "That's ridiculous,"  he asserted. "We are not forming a  party. We merely want to see what  is in the Social Credit plan."

Army Ants In Malaya Have System  Of Crossing  That many ants in Malaya operate with military precision and march  in lines that seem interminable has  been    reported   by   Carveth   Wells.  Rivers are. no obstacles to them, he  says.    The main body of the army  waits at the bank of the river while  scouts reconnoitre and choose a bend  where the current sweeps diagonally  across the   stream.   The   ants   then  torm themselves into a ball the size  of a coconut, which rolls  over into  the water. As the current carries the  living ball   across,   it   keeps   rolling  over and over, so that each ant re  ceives only   a   momentary   ducking.  The instant the ball touches the other  side    it    collapses,    and    the    ants  scramble ashore, reform their ranks  an*l continue their march.  A well bred man conceals how  much he thinks of himself and how  little ho thinks of others.

O,  HOARE RESIGN  OVER COLLAPSE  OF PEACE PLAN  London.���������While the Franco-British  peace plan which he helped to frame  was virtually discarded at Geneva,  Sir Samuel Hoare, foreign secretary,  suddenly resigned as" the latest sensational development since the terms  of the plan were disclosed.  Sir Samuel's resignation, which  Was accepted by Prime Minister Baldwin, came 10 days after he drafted  the plan secretly at Paris with Premier Laval.  The action of the foreign secretary, t which rated a political sensation, came on the eve of a foreign  affairs debate in the house of commons. He had cut short a vacation  in Switzerland to go before the common?, many of its members hostile,  to defend his part in the Paris proposals, which opponents contended  would reward Italy for her aggression.  No official explanation was offered  for Sir Samuels abrupt retirement  from his political career, regarded as  brilliant before the African war  clouds gathered.  Labor and Liberal ranks fiad fired  shaft after shaft into the government for the plan, which would give  Premier Mussolini control of roughly two-thirds of Ethiopia although  Italy herself was indicted by the  League of Nations as an aggressor.  The revolt had even extended into  the ranks of Conservatives, who won  an overwhelming victory in the last  general ��������� election.  .The government -was accused of an  about-face in its hitherto determined  stand in the Italo-Ethiopian crisis.  Informed quarters saw indications  that    the    eventual    result    of    the  resignation of Sir Samuel, Hoare  as  foreign  secretary would " be -the re  construction of the government.  These quarters considered the outcry* against the Franco-British proposals and Sir Samuel's resignation  dealt the government one of the most  severe blows any administration had  ever received so soon-after an election. ��������� .   ���������  ~?:.  The sudden resignation of Sir  Samuel was the subject of comment  by newspapers throughout the United  Kingdom. Varying views were expressed.  The Times said: "Sir Samuel Hoare  conforms to the honorable tradition  of British public life that the minister most closely associated with an  abortive step should resign. There  ���������will be general sympathy with Sir  Samuel, who suffers for failing to  prevent indefensible proposals.''

Member  Sends Greetings  Once again the Christmas  Season is upon us and I hasten to  avail myself of the courtesy of  the "Creston Review" to extend  to all its readers my sincerest  hope���������That, this Christmas Season may bring to them, one and  all, a, larger measure of good  cheer. And to those who have  suffered severely in recent years I  trust there may be a lifting of the  clouds and evidences of a brighter  day.  I am profoundly impressed with  the convicton that most of our  economic and social problems find  their origin in the selfishness of  man. In other words, greed for  wealth and power will dull the  better feelings in a man and cause  him to disregard the rights and  the welfare of his neighbors.  Therefore it is well for us at  this Christmas Season to recall to  mind the principles and teachings  of the Carpenter of Nazareth, for  in these alone can we find the real  antidote to human avarice.  It is, then, in a spirit of Goodwill, to All Men" that I address  this message to all who may read  it. :     H. H. STEVENS  Our K, B. 0.

R. M. TELFORD  The Erickson school Christmsa concert  staged at the schoolhouse Friday evening-,  was the best ever put on these. The  schoolhouse "was filled to capacity, many  having to be turned away due the limited seating capacity.  *'0 Canada" was given as the opening  number by the children. In the "Min-  uett." which followed Joan Langston  gave quite a recitation on how her grandmother did tbe minuet, after which this  dance was very prettily executed by  eight boys and girls. A dialogue dance,  called "Old King Cole," caused a lot -of  fun. Joan Heric. was Old King Cole,  and filled the bill to perfection. The  dance accompanying the play, was done  by eight boys and girls from the. junior,  roomi and was the best dance feature of  the evening.  "Pop Eye" was a dance cleverley done  by Lois Botterill and Lois Bundy, the  latter .impersonating Pop Eye the sailor.  A Backw ard drill created a great deal of  fun. A number of senior pupils doing a  drill with their backs to the audience,  with comic masks on the back of their  heads to make it appear they were facing the crowd. The Lolly pop song, given  by Ted -and Jim Botterill, was well  worthy of mention as it was exceptionally  well rendered.  Jimmy Carr, Jim Richardson and Zane  Beam, the former and latter as coons, in  a sketch, were very amusing. A tap  dance done by Mildred Fraser, Anita  H^ric, Helen Goodwin and Norma Bundy  was a great hit, and was one of the very  ew pieces that was allowed to respond  with an encore. There were 19 numbers  on the programme, as follows:  "O Canada."  Opening Song-���������Four girls.  Minuet���������Junior boys and girls.  Dialogue���������"Pine Trpe."  Monologue���������A. J.  Hamilton.  Dialogue���������Old King Cole.  Dialogue���������"Waiting for Doctor."  Dance���������"Pop Eye."  Monologue���������Fred Mazook.  Song���������Jingle Bells. 7 juniors.

Song���������Santa Claus���������Senior girls.  Farewell-���������Evelyn Andrew.  God Save the King.  After   the   national    anthem,    Santa  Claus made his appearance and  presented all the children with  a gift and a bag  of* candy.    The teachers were also  remembered from the well laden, tree, and"  bags of candy were also passed  out  to  all children in the audience.  For the success of the entertainment  the teachers, Principal Cobus and ,Miss  Marcella Sanford, are to be highly commended; along with Mrs. Cobus,a the latter being responsibly for the training of  the children in the dance numbers that  pro .*ed so popular. Mrs. Wally Wood-  hall of Nelson added greatly to the musical side of tbe programme, as did also  Molly Cunie. J. B. Holder was chairman of the evening, and Teddy Haskins  was right at home as Santa Claus.

Recitations  were   given by  Margaret Simister, Mable Mather, Florence Marshall,   Marti*a Marshnll, Bob  Corner, Bill Constable, Dick Smith, Sadie  McNeil, Tom Corner.   The school children combined in the presentation of fivo  carols, and there were three dialogues,  the concert closing witb'"Hark; the Herald Angels Sing."

Due too many counter attractions  Friday night the basketball at Park Pavilion in laid of the Women's Institute  Christmas cheer fund was poorly attend-*  ed. In the first game the so-far unbeaten High School girls were downed  by the City Reps. "17-28, and Groceteria  was beaten by Loallo 27-25.  The girls game was not very interesting and was particularly rough. High  School did not get going at all, and every  {nlayer seemed to ne playing her own  ittle individual game. High girls had  plenty of shots at the basket but could  not convert them. Nine penalties wero  called on High School as compared with  five on the City Reps. The latter played  a nice game and seemed to be bombarding the bsskei all evening. Mary Abbott played first-class ball, making four  baskets and converting one penalty.  She was not only shooting well rut was  feeding her team mates in order to give  them a chance to score. Agnes Crane  and Betty Speers played well.   Teams:  High School���������T. Tompkins 3, R.

The Groceteria-Loallo game provided  good money's worth in excitement and  thrills. The former worked hard but  had only four of the regulars out. Des.  Truscott completed the quint: and play*  ed well. Bill Bourdon also put up a fine  exhibition. The Grocery squad was too  rough and sloppy on the passing. Loallo displayed about the nicest combination ol the season and Maddess could  not miss the basket at all, making 12  points. Jim Da'e was also effective,  garnering severs points. The winners had  11 penalties against nine for Groceteria.  Teams:  Imperial Groceteria���������-Speers 6, H.  Couling 6, J. Payne 3, B. Bourdon 7, D.  Truscott 3.    Total 25.

O,  WORLD HAPPENINGS  BRIEFLY TOLD  U.S. Secretary of the Treasury  Morgenthau announced the receipt of  $230,453 from Finland in full payment of its war debt instalment.  Twenty-six men were drowned or  frozen to death in a blizzard -which  swept Iceland recently. Twenty persons still are missing-.  New Zealand government railways  have ordered eight streamlined electric locomotives to be built by the  English Electric Company of "London.  A stone cross and small memorial  chapel will be set up on the bank of  the Lake of Lucerne where Queen  Astrid of Belgium was killed in a  motor accident.  Arthur Henderson, former Labor  - leader and president of the world disarmament conference, left a net  estate of $115,000, it was revealed.  He died October 20. The entire estate  was willed to his widow.  Primo Laurenoetti may be Italian  but he's not a Fascist. And that's  why he was in hospital suffering  from severe head and body injuries.  He shouted: "Down with Mussolini!"  at a Fascist meeting in Montreal.  "In a round-up of "scorchers" police  detained 5,253 Berlin bicyclists. The  purpose was to show them" that  bicycling speeding will not be tolerated. All were warned, and 2.832  were fined.  A gold nugget weighing 13 kilograms and 787 grams (about 30  pounds), declared by the Soviet press  to be the largest ever found anywhere during- this century, has been  discovered in the Ural gold fields.  More people were killed on British.  highways during- election week than  in any other week this year. The  total of 165 was. 32 more than the  previous -week and 25 more than the  corresponding period in 1934.  Christmas Trees  Million Homes Will Be Decori-ted For'  Yuletide Season  Christmas trees are now in season  again, and Canada expects to ship  nearly four million of them to the  United States this year to help decorate the homes of American families  and to spread Christmas cheer in the  hearts of thousands. In addition, it  is estimated that anywhere from  500,000 to 1,000,000 Canadian homes  are adorned during the Yuletide Season with trees from Canadian woodlands. Last year the United States  Imported 3,681,439 Christmas trees  from Canada at a cost of $375,286,  and early reports of shipments of  these trees from Ontario, Quebec and  New Brunswick indicate the supply  %"ill be considerably larger this year  than ever before.  In   Eastern   Canada   the   favorite  trees for Christmas are young firs or  spruce, about ten feet in height.    In  British Columbia the young Douglas  fir is the most popular.   Cedar, hemlock,   juniper   and    pine    of   tender  growth are also used when the more  favoured species are not readily available.   The spicy odour of the balsam  fir,   with   its    short,    flat,    lacquered  leaves of dark green, which render it  easy to decorate, make it particularly  suitable for use as a Christmas tree.  Thc origin of the use of trees for  decorative    purposes    at    Christmas  time is lost in antiquity.   The custom  is believed to have been adopted from  pagan ceremonies, but   it  is  only   in  comparatively recent times that the  Christmas tree has become popular in  North America and the British Isles.  Since the introduction  of strings of  coloured electric lights for illumination the use  of trees for decorative  purposes both inside tho home and on  the veranda or front lawn has becomo  more popular.  New Royal Bank Appointments  B.   L.   Mitchell,   James   Muir   And  Harold G. Healer Made Assistant General Managers  Appointment of Mr. Burnham L.  Mitchell, Mr. James Muir and Mr.  Harold G. Hesler, as Assistant General Managers of The Royal Bank of  Canada, is announced.  Mr. Mitchell, a native of Merigom-  ish, N.S., and since 1934 supervisor  of Ontario branches, becomes assistant general manager following a long  and extensive career with the bank in  many parts of Canada and Newfoundland. He joined the Union Bank of  Halifax in 1903, serving as a junior  at the New Glasgow branch. When  the Union Bank was absorbed by The  Royal Bank of Canada in 1910, Mr.  Mitchell was moved to Halifax, and  two years later became accountant  of that branch. In 1915, he was appointed manager of the St. John's,  Newfoundland branch, following two  years' service as assistant manager  there. Between 1919 and 1925, he  served successively as manager at  Halifax and at Vancouver; in 1929 he  was appointed manager at Toronto;  and five years later supervisor of Ontario branches. As assistant general  manager, Mr. Mitchell will continue  to supervise Ontario branches from  headquarters at Toronto.  Mr. James Muir, for the past four  years general inspector of The Royal  Bank of Canada, is a native of Scotland. Like Mr. Mitchell, he has been  engaged in the profession of banking  since boyhood, and has served the  bank in the Dominion and New York.  Mr. Muir joined The Royal Bank of  Canada at Moose Jaw in 1912, after  serving three years with the Commercial Bank of Scotland, Ltd., and  one year with the chartered bank of  India in London, England. In 1916 he  was transferred to the inspector's  department at Winnipeg-, and later in  the same year became accountant in  the Winnipeg- Grain Exchange branch.  In 1917 he -was transferred to the  Credit Department, Head office, and  appointments as inspector, supervisor's department, Winnipeg-, and as  assistant supervisor at New York,  followed in quick succession. His  location in New York as assistant  supervisor of the bank's business in  Central and South America extended  over three years. In 1928 he returned to Winnipg as manager. His appointment as general inspector, with  headquarters in Montreal, followed  in December 1931.  Mr. Harold G. Kesler, secretary of  The Royal Bank of Canada, -was born  \ in Humberstone, Ont., and joined the  Welland branch of. the? bank as a  junior in 1910. He served in various  capacities in several branches  throughout Ontario until 1915, when  he was transferred to Winnipeg*.  After enlistment in 1916 and service  overseas, he rejoined the bank at the  Havana branch in July 1919, and  shortly after was appointed accountant at Cienfuegos, Cuba. The following- year he was transferred to the  supervisor's department, Havana,  and in 1928 became joint manager of  Havana branch. In 1930, Mr. Hesler was moved to head office, Montreal, where he has since been closely  in touch with the bank's foreign business, having visited personally many  of the bank's foreign branches as  well as the more important offices  across the Dominion. He was appointed general inspector in 1931.  The appointments of Mr. Mitchell,  Mr. Muir and Mr. Hesler become  effective immediately.  SEES THU KING  ]  Sir Robert Vansittart, permanent  British Under-Secretary of the foreign  office, who participated with Sir  Samuel Hoare and Premier Laval of  France at the meeting in which the  joint peace plan was drafted, had an  audience with the King. The peace  plan hac been generally condemned  by other members of the League.  The Town Of Santa Clans  SUNDAY SCHOOL LESSON  DECEMBER 29  "REVIEW  Golden text: The lovirigkindness of  the Lord is from everlasting to everlasting upon them that fear him, And  his righteousness unto children's children. Psalm 103:17.  Devotional reading-: Psalm 126i  Post Office In Indiana Swamped With  Christmas Mail  Meet the man who discovered  Santa Claus, the town of Santa  Claus, that is. Bill Herscheil, Hoosier  reporter, song writer and poet, with  h!s ruddy face and somewhat expanded low chest, might well pass for  good Saint Nicholas himself, given  some white whiskers, a red suit and  cap and a reindeer team.  It was not in that gruise, however,  but as a reporter that Bill drove into  little town of Santa Claus in the  southern Indiana hill country 32  years ago.  "What town is this?" asked Bill.  "Santa Claus," said one of the 30  or so inhabitants.  Bill went back to Indianapolis to  write a story which drew world attention to the then almost isolated  village. The town's fame has grown  until now the job of postmaster at  Santa Claus this time year of year  becomes one which overtaxes the  local community.  Special stamping machines are  brought in and a trained post office  official is sent there to aid Oscar L.  Philipps,   postmaster.  As many as 100,000 pieces of mail  are handled a day. It comes addressed to "postmaster, Santa Claus, Ind."  and includes material for remailing  to persons and places all over the  world.  This great picture of the Suffering  Servant of Jehovah, given in the 53rd  chapter of Isaiah has nothing corresponding to it in Israel's history  until Jesus the Christ lived and suffered and died. What is ihe picture ?  He was despised and rejected of men;  doing on the night of the writing on  He was wounded for our transgressions; what follows here? All we like  sheep have gone astray; complete  this verse. He was oppressed, yet  when he was afflicted���������what happened? By oppress'on and judgment he  was taken away; how did those of  his generation consider it all?  Over in Tibet the name of the only  newspaper there is translated into  our language as "The Mirror of the  New Vicissitudes of Every Corner of  Tii'.s Universe." One issue contained  an article which proposed to,cure one  of the most troublesome vicissitudes  ���������unemployment���������by having wheels  abolished in the western world; then  the unemployed could become ricki-  sha runners!  Jeremiah was called by God to be  his agent in preachings against the  "vicissitudes" of his day. He was set  over the nations, to pluck up and to  break down, and to destroy and to  overthrow, but he -was also to build  and to plant, but not by any Tibetan  method; How was he encouraged to  undertake his difficult task ? How was  he persecuted? When the priests and  the prophets declared him worthy of  death, what did he say to them?  See to it that in your own immediate relatione���������to your kith and kin,  to your masters and servants and associates in business, and to all those  whom, you encounter in the common  ways of life���������you cherish and practise the utmost fair play. See that  you shrink from taking a mean, unfair, underhand, advantage of any  other man: be fastidious that he gets  as good a chance as yours. And with  this let there "be no frontier to your  good will.  These words are the admonitions  of a preacher of righteousness to the  people of to-day. When Jeremiah told  his people to amend their ways, what  did he bid not do and what do?  What is our saying about experi=  ence being a dear school? Does one  usually profit by the experience of  others ? What king of Babylon failed  to profit by the experience of a predecessor? What was that predecessor's name, and what befell him.?

O'B., in Chicago Daily News,  says: "One of the big insurance companies is inviting people to take a  50-mile-an-houf pledge. I am tempted to accept the invitation. I have  done more than my share of fast  driving. I have scooted across open  country at 80 m.p.h. and better; but  I've come to the conclusion that there  is no sense in it. The normal cost in  fuel, tires and mechanical wear is  doubled at this speed. It is reasonable to suppose therefore, that the  wear and tear on the driver is no less  considerable. I'm inclined to believe  that 400 miles in seven hours will  harden the arteries much more than  thc same distance in 10 hours."  An electrical company announces  that radio can cure lame muscles  and joints.   What about aching ears?  "Pardon mtf,"   said   the   stranger,  'are you a resident here?"  "Yes," was the answer, "I've been  How Ihe Turkey Changed  Christmas Fare  Gift Of The North American Continent To The Festive Board  Among theculinary jgifts from the  aboriginal inhabitants of Norfifct  America to the white man���������cornmeal  foods, pemmican, succotash, pumpkins, squash, sweet potatoes, fish and:  wild fowl and clams and beans baked  in clay, maple syrup and maple sugar  ���������roast turkey stands supreme. Nearly three hundred years have passed  since the American turkey displaced  the vaunted Sir Loin and Baron of  Beef from their proud positions on  the British Christmas table and vanquished forever the claims of roast  guinea fowl, quail, cranes and swans  as the Christmas masterpiece of the  festive board. Indeed, to-day, so-  dominant is the North American bird  that Christmas throughout the English, speaking world is not Christmas*  without a turkey.  The earliest documentary evidence  of the Americanization of European  dietary is set forth in an ecclesiastic  cal ordinance by Cranmer, Archbishop of Canterbury, in which, is*  mentioned "the turkey-cocke" as one  of "the greater fowles" of which an.  ecclesiastic was to have "but one on  a dishe." The learned Archbishop  could not have referred to "ye Canadian turkey-cocke," for the Canadian  turkey is a notable bird capable of  supplying: sustenance to many, and  what a generous repast! Browned to  a nicety, fragrant as a zephyr from.  Ceylon's Isle, and towering in regal  mien above the portentous platter,  the Canadian turkey is a feast for a  king-. And also a feast for the mind,  for with consummation comes the  spirit of Christmas, and all men are  brothers. Tranquility, harmony, concord.    Peace to men of Good Will.  The Canadian turkey is famous for  its taste and bountiful proportions,  and thousands each year,grace the  Old Country Christmas board, over  and above the many, thousands on  Canadian Christinas tables. The export of turkeys and other poultry-to  Great Britain has assumed very large  proportions, as a result of the fine  reputation ; gained by the shipments  of previous years. The average  weight of a box of turkeys for  export is 125 pounds, while the aver-.  age box of chickens weighs 60  pounds. From January 1 to November 24 of this year (1935) no less^  than 42,029 boxes of poultry were exported, in comparison with 13,712  boxes in the corresponding period of  1934. This, of course does noj; include the large Christmas trade now  in progress.  50  ye****  rs.

SYNOPSIS  Here is an absorbing- and exciting  ���������story of a fight against stubborn prejudice and a bitter personal malignancy���������of a girl and a man battling  ridicule, sabotage, bullets, and the  treachery that would turn them  ���������against each other.  The story opens with Link 'Fleming addressing a meeting- of Boone  ���������County cattlemen, called together  with the object of forming an irrigation company.  Roper Kilgo, the boss of the Raw-  -hide and nearby ranges, who seemed  to approve the plan, but was really  opposed to it, had forced Soak Torney, a derelict mining engineer, whom  Kilgo knew would be called upon to  .gfive his expert opinion in favor of the  ���������scheme, to reverse his earlier endorsement, and declare that irrigation in  Boone county so far as Hamilton s  plan was concerned, was only a newfangled way to waste" money.

Can yuh beat that? Crazy, I call it.  But he's bullheaded, ain't yuh, Link?  Might have put it over, too," he  chuckled derisively, "but Soak Torney  shore pricked his balloon, and saved  the boys about sixty thousand bucks,  I reckon!"  .There was a brief silence. "I know  about it, Roper," Helen returned  quietly. "Im in favor of irrigation,  too. It's the only way to improve our  ranches."  "In favor of it? A loco stunt like  that ? But how���������I mean, gosh,  where'd you hear-about/it?"  "Link talked irrigation to me a  long time ago and* I told him nothing doing. Then," Buzz rasped accusingly, "he figured he could work on  my s'ster just 'cause she's a girl.  Prob'ly thought if he got her talked  into it, she'd swing me." But by gosh  I won't���������" v  "Oh, Buzz, please don't make a  scene!"  Kilgo rubbed his chin. "So Link  wrote her, eh? That's shore plenty  o' crust, correspondin* with yore sister and hidin' it from yuh!" He  jerked his ear as if reflecting swiftly. "Darned if I'd stand for that,  Bu-"���������T'm dan-red if I would!"  ���������'Hold on. There wasn't anything  , underhand about it at all," the Star  Loop owner declared coolly.  Helen hung back as Kilgo reached  out to tako her arm. "I want to  talk this ovor with Mr. Fleming.  You soo, I'm really serious about it.  Why, it wiil be wonderful���������It will  mako our spread twice as valuable.  I���������"  "Yuh got no call to write my sis-  tor J" This fact seemed to stick In  tho man's mind, spurring him to  docpor wrath as seconds ticked  away. Buzk's faco was dark, and thc  twitching of a cheek rmusclo showed  him scarcely able to control himself.  Ho turned on Roper.   "Has ho?"  "Nerviest thing I ovor hcai-d! Don't  know's I like It mysolf," ho growled.  "Everybody knows Halon and I practically had things settled before she  went away with yore dad. I been  wait'ln' two yoars and gettin' ready.  ���������Course, I ain't hor brother like you  tiro. It's up to you how yuh aim to  tako this libro hitch-fcr^nco.*"'  -"Ploaso!" , Embarrassment sent  waves of crimson stealing over hor  smooth chocks. "Link, If you aro  starting   to   your   spread/' sho said  hesitantly, "f���������I'm going that way  too. Perhaps we could talk about "it  and���������"  "You're not ridin* out with him; I  ain't goin* to have it!' He swung on  Fleming. "Just about yore size���������this  sneakin' lobo stuff!"  Link had almost reached the limit  of his patience.- It was only by exerting every ounce of control that he  restrained himself from .lashing out  with a hard fist at the man's chin.  His gaze riveted on the glittering  blue-grey eyes as with set jaw he  answered in a cold, level tone.  "You've got this all wrong. Our  correspondence started by accident.  And I don't like insults. Is that  plain?;'  Buzz stepped back. Malevolence  glittered its frosty warning as swiftly he noted the position of Buster  Townsend, who stood waiting for his  employer, then of Helen, Kilgo, and  Link. A transformation seemed to  take place inside the man. His hollow cheeks drained of blood and his  lower lip* quivered with unspeakable  fury.  "Damn you!" he screamed. 'Til  teach you to monkey with my. sister  and plot to grab, our spread!"  Suddenly, loosing a wolfish snarl,  he plunged for his Colt.  "Buzz!" Helen flung out both hands  to stop his draw.  Fearful lest she be shot, and wholly  Ignoring his own imminent danger,  Link also plunged forward to grasp  her shoulder and jerk her out of  harm*s way.  Wham! The room reeled With, the  force of a pounding explosion. A  grey cloud of acrid powder smoke  wafted to their nostrils, blurred  vis'on. Fleming, unhurt, probed  puzzledly from.-one taut countenance  to the next. He staggered and all but  lost his balance as Buster struck him  with blunt force, both.hands clutched  to his middle. ,  "I���������got it!" he gasped. Twisting  and writhing in agony, the Star  Loop foreman lurched two steps, then  sprawled on hia side at their feet.  <"TX A TaTWD     TfT  */***������*   m.MAJJ.\.     J1J.  Helen Hamilton uttered a.horrified  gasp. .��������� Kilgo's expression' of" satisfaction changed swiftly to dismay as he  fell back, startled. Two men orr the  sidewalk outside halted to peer  through., the hazy window. Spying  Buster on the floor, they came on  the run through the front door of the  hotel.  As for Buzz, the report of his own  weapon had the effect of a severe  shock. With brows knit, he stared  from, it, a wisp of smoke curling from  its muzzle, to Townsend. His seamed face swept grey. He flung a quick  look around, whirled, and started out  of the place.  Link would have" made after but  just then the newcomers seized  Hamilton. With a hard jerk Sheriff  Stephen wrenched the Colt away and  jammed it inside his own belt. The  next moment Ames had hla man  prisoner with manacles locked over  both wrists.  "Dead, Link?",  "No. But he's hurt bad. Seems  to have got it In the stomach." He  turned to Gaines, the hotel clerk.  "Ab.'run for Doc Slater, quick!"  Townsend's chubby face was pale  under its coat of range tan, and his  eyes were closed. He had ceased  twitching to lie as one in a coma.  Link stooped, picked up the man as  if he weighed half his hundred and  seventy pounds, and strode with him  across the lobby to a leather lounge,  Thore, as tenderly as possible, he laid  him down.  "Givo. him a shot o' this, Link."  With shaking hand Roper offered a  half-filled flask ho had taken from  his pocket. Fleming accepted It, and  aftor extracting tho cork, pressed  tho bottle opening to Bustor's lips,  Tho brown whisky trickled down his  chocks but soma, Link thought, pono-  trated tho tightly-set lips.  Thore was a bustlo behind as roly-  poly Dr. Slater puffed In. "Cot back,  gents! Sheriff, better clear tho lobby.,  Ono thing the human animal sure  needs to live���������air. Now thonl" Thei  practitioner dropped his bag and  frowning, got on big. knees. Ho  glanced ovor hia' shoulder. "Bring  tliat girl horo. Womon aro handy at  this kind of thing. Need a man too.  Hore, Kilgoi you can hand me tho  instruments." v  "Wh-whaf; goin' to do, Dec Y"  "Operate of course! Think thin  follow can digest lend ? Hm," he mut  tered, shaking his head doubtfully.  'Don't know. . . Bleedta' pretty hard.  Bad place, too."  Helen Hamilton was at Slater's  side, her lips pressed firmly together,  trying to force herself not to shudder at the death-like pallor of the  man her brother had shot. Doc  looked at her and grunted.  "You got grit enough, I reckon.  Don't be scared at lots, of blood." .  "Doc, I���������" Roper gulped while he  kept his eyes averted from the  wounded man. 'T don't know if I  can���������Gosh, I'm liable to keel over!"  he exclaimed in panic.    *  The- physician ?_gave a disgusted  snort. "Here, somebody else���������Link!  Hold this pan. Thanks, Gaines:  that's using your head for somethin'  useful. Only man that thought of  hot water in -the whole crowd! Now  then. Easy, Btuster. .'-. Won't hurt  much. Ah, it's there, eh ? Wonder if  it went clear into v .."  There was a moment of taut silence; Fleming's eyes met those of  the girl over Dr. Slater's shiny bald  plate. Her face was white as a sheet  of paper, but when he nodded ques-  tiongly toward the door she shook  her head.      t  Link himself by no means relished  this sort of thing. Buster was groaning and gasping in pain, fearful of  the doctor's very touch. Suddenly  Slater turned around.  "Ain't goin* weak like1 Kilgo, are  you?"  "No."  "Link," he whispered, 'T got totry  a damned delicate operation to save  that boy's life. Need two of you.  Think the girl can stand it?"  "Tt was her brother shot Townsend,  Doc. But I reckon she's ihe game  kind."  He whistled. "Her brother? That  scamp Stephen grabbed? Ought to  make, him watch it,* that's what  Ames oughta do!" While he spoke he  wa.tched Buster carefully. *T ain't  got a drop o* ether or chloroform.  Give me that gun of years, Link."  Fleming drew the weapon and  handed it over, butt first. Puzzled as  to Doc's intent, he watched him  twirl the Colt until he grasped its  cold barrel.  . Suddenly Doc leaned toward Towns-  end. He struck out, butt first. There  was a low thump that, made Buster  jerk.    Then he relaxed,. unconscious.  Helen Hamilton clutched a hand to  her throat. But she stifled the cry  that sought freedom.  She was game!  "Now we start. Young lady, you  sponge that wound. Careful! But  keep it open and clear; I got to gee  what I'm. doing. I'm after that slug.  Might take a minute to find it. Hated  to soak him like that but he couldn't  have stood the pain. Nobody likes  cold steel pokin' around their stomach."  As he spoke he fished a sharp,  gleaming - instrument from his kit,  dipped it in the whisky bottle, and  leaned over his patient. He probed  until blood covered his instrument,  then withdrew it. Helen's face was  like a pale mask and her dark eyes  betrayed the sympathetic pain she  felt.  Doc Slater tried again. "U*h!'' he  grunted. "Here, girl���������drop that rag.  Put your two fingers���������so. Wait  now. . .! all right���������pull easy! Ah-  ah!" Again he busied himself, grunting. But his quick, d<jf t fingers made  short work of closing the wound and  bandaging it.  "Fine. You can tell your husband  when you got ono, you operated on a  man.   Why, Link, she" pulled tho lead  NABOB COFFEE is ricH and full flavoured . . . it is  thermalo roasted end perfectly blended. NABOB  comes to you m vacuum packed glass jars or  cans.

But for Fleming's watchfulness she  would have fallen. Ke gathered her  slight body in his arms, hurried to  another lounge, and laid her gently  upon it.  (To Be Continued)  Royal Castle Now Hotel  Was Once Some Of Queen Alexandra  In Denmark  .  Once the home of the late Queen  Alexandra and her sister, the late  Empress Dagmar of Russia, mother  of the murdered Czar, the beautiful  royal castle of Hvidore, in Denmark,  is to be converted into a hotel and  restaurant. Queen Alexandra acquired It in 1905. Two years later  she built a big open fireplace in one  of the drawing-rooms. There Is an  inscription in the mantelpiece reading: "East or West���������Home is Best,"  with the sign A. (Alexandra). At one  time it was rumored that the castle  would be acquired by King George,  but owing to his ill-health, it is.stated, the purchase was never accomplished.  Entertained Full House  The Duchess of Kent entertained a  "full house" for dinner on a recent  Sunday night. Guests were King  George and Queen Mary, of England; King Haakon VII. and Queen  Maud, of Norway, and King Christian X., of Denmark.  They that tru������t in the Lord shall  be -"*.*"* "Mount Zion which cannot be  removed, but abideth forever. As the  mountains are round about Jerusalem, so the Lord is round about his  people from henceforth even for  ever. Psalm 125:1-2.  How on a rock they stand,  Who watch His eye and hold His  guiding hand;  Not half so fixed among her vassal hills  Rises the holy pile that Kedron's  valley fills.  That is the way to he immovable  in the midst of troubles, as a rock  amidst the wayes. When God is in  the midst of a kingdom or city He  makes it firm as Mount Zion, which  cannot be removed. When He is In  the midst of a soul, though calamities throng about it on all hands and  roar like the billows of the sea, yet  there is a constant calm within, such  a peace as the world cannot give nor  take away. What is it but not lodging God in the soul, but keeplfig the  world in His stead, that makes men  shake like leaves at every blast of  danger?  It's a fine thing to be a gentle-,  man, but it's an awful handicap in an  argument.  ������������������ - ��������� ��������� ��������������� ���������   '" '���������"���������" '. nil...!-...
