I was a fool to move from  Kensington. In a civilized place tho  enow i:. cleared away before respectable  people have- to get about. Confound it  all. i shall mis. that wretched train  aides?

London, in the littlo Surrey village  of Ci.uKi'ord, or, lo be more correct, in  a pretty little villa on a newly-opened  estate, ;> mile and a half from the village and station. Ho had lived there  for rwo years, and save on Saturdays  and the three weeks' vacation that he  permitted himself in the summer, had  caught the 9.40 each morning, with a  mriehine-liko regularity. There was an  eailier train, just be fore nine, which  conveyed humbler folk to their ofliccs,  but the train after tho 0.40 "was a alow  one, at half-past cloven, and it took the  bef-t part of aa hour tc do the journey,  lie broke into an awkward run, the  enow got into hia boots, and playfully  trickled down hia neck; his breath, with  the unusual cxerciso and the lurid summing-up of the situation, came in short,  panting gasps, but he arrived on the up  platform al the same moment as the  London Rxpre.s, and the station master  bundled him into a first-clash, smoking  carriage.  ''Seasonable weather be hanged, sir! "'  the only other.occupant of the carriage.  "Seasonable weather-'lie hanger, sir!"  eried  Mr. 'Treacher, via'ho felt a little  stream   of .incited  snow  running down  his   back,  and  wriggled  wTathfully  in  his seat.

"I've got the very thing for you, a  beautiful bird this; fi.teeii pounds, sir;  and you can have it for the same number of shillings.''  Mr. Treacher gingerly poked its  br( vast.  " .rand bird, sir," said the salesman; "came from a farm in Norfolk,  oulv ye..terdav."  '"'All right,'" said Mr. Treacher. "I'll  take it; put it in a bag, and hurry up,  please.''  He fidgeted whilst tho man put the  bird into a mat basket, paid for it, aud  then walked rapidly towards the station.  Ft was when he was half-way up the  station approach, wilh five minutes in  which to catch the train, that Mr.  Treacher suddenly remembered tc buy  hia tobacco. A Christmas without tobacco would be torture; bul thero was  only a small shop in the village, and  that did not stock his favorite mixture.  He sank into a corner seat, and beamed genially upou the other three occupants of the carriage, then withdrew  a cigar from his case, lit it, and puffed  out a cloud of smoke, feeling at peace  with mankind.  "Right away!"  A whistle shrilled out, a green flag  ���������������������������fluttered at either end of tho train, and  it began to glide from the platform.  Then Mr. Treacher's eye fell upon a  turkey peacefully reposing upou the  rack above a gentleman in the opposite  comer, who, with his heal sunk on his  breast, was slumbering.  He glanced quickly up to see if his  bird were over his head, paled .slightly,  and looked at the seat beside him. But  there was no turkey in thcraek or  upon thc. seat. Then, with a shock that  caused him to drop his cigar to the  flour and made him start- to his feet,  he realized that he must havo left the  bird in the refreshment room.  He let down the window, allowing a  quantity of cold air and snow tc come  into the carriage, and fumbled for the  handle of tlio door.  P������������������ut even as he fumbled, the train  drew clear of the platform, and a pair  of strong arms pulled him back into the  centre of the carriage.    -  "Let me go, yoti fool," ho panted.  "I've left my turkey behind!"  The elderly gentleman who was clasping him affectionately around the waist  explained brutally that, whilst in the  ordinary way he had no interest whatever in Mr. Treacher's life, he was determined not to be .summoned as a witness at an inquest at Christinas time,  and therefore he would havo to go tur-  ������������������$^,Ti������������������-?W*  Bi i.i:  flute : '���������������������������  ba!:.

From tho timo of their marriago,  flOtne ten years ago, Mrs. Treacher had  declared always that a man who was  in London almost every day, roust by  nature bo a good shopper, and in consequence Mr. Treacher had become a  sort of common carrier. He did not  appreciate the honor, and timo after  time had been tempted to do something  that would lose him     hia proud  title,  lour o'clock. j\ 1 uttering un-Christmas-  liko remarks, he turned about, and went  out into the snow and slush again.  A quarter of an hour later he returned to find that, tho o.lO had been a  quarter of an hour lato in starting, owing to the heavy Christmas traflic, aud  that ho had only missed it by half a  minute.  Aftor ^peaking eloquently to the  liekol-eolk _tor for somo few minutes,  he relumed wrathfully away and rau  inlo lho arms of Reynolds, lhe junior  partner of a firm with which he did a  good deal cf Ir.isine ...

"Came up for a slack time  today, and have been kept hard at it  over a dispute with an inhuman wretch  who has no respnet for this festive sea-  sou.    Come aud  have a  drink."

Treacher had plenty ot time, and he  talked business with young Ueynolds,  who Roomed in no hurry to catch the  local train for .ydenham, when, he lived  with his father.  Ho wished his young friend all the  joys of the festive season outside the  barrier of tho local platform, and then  hurried along to the main-line platform,  from which his own traiu departed.  To tho surprise of everyone, the four  o'clock train backed alongside the platform at one minute to four, and the  oflicial.., rapidly recovering from their  aniHxoment, decided to give a similar  shock lo their colleagues farther down  the line by getting the train off on time  nnd hustled tho passengors intc their  seats.

He picked up hi.s  cigar and sat back in his seat, glariirg  at his preserver, trying to think of some  causic remark, but, instead, thinking  how he would dare fa .o his wife without the turkey.  What excuse could he make? To  admit he had left the bird oir a stool  in a refreshment-room would bo madness. His head"thoroughly cleared now.  he racked his brains to think of some  plausible story, but without success. He  knew that Mrs. Treacher was a keen  cross-exaniriier. and that it would be  easier to deceive the cleverest counsel  at lho  Bar than his wife.  But  what could ho do!  The train began to slow down for the  first stop nt a semi-country station  about twelve miles out. I'or a moment  he thought of alighting aud going back  to town, but hu felt certain that the  turkey would have vanished, and a late  return would mean almost as much  trouble as to go home birdless.  The man who had prevented him  alighted, and whilst, Mr. Treacher was  debating as tn whether he should follow his example, aud try tc buy another  turkey in the small "town, the train  started again on its way to Maythorpe.  the. station before Coulsford.  Then Mr. Treacher, staring gloomily  around, rested his eye on tho gentleman  who was sleeping peacefully and who  had a fine-looking turkey iu a basket  above his head.  Mr. Treacher decided regretfully that  hc must have been keeping Christmas  already, and that he was likely to leave  t.he bird behind, or drop it by tbe wayside.  No man or woman should hobble pain  fully  aliout  because  of corns  when  so  certain a relief is at hand as Holloway's  Corn Cure.  To Mr. Treacher the loss of his turkey  was a tragedy.  Ho leant across tho <_ carriage and  prodded the sleeping man with the point  of his umbrella.  The gentleman opened his .eyes and  stared bliukingly at him.  "I'll buy your turkey," said Mr.  Treacher.  The sleeping man informed him, in  a voico with a good doal of anger in  it, that he wasn't a poulterer and had  no intention of starting in the business to oblige any madman .that he met  casually in tho train. He further-.-informed Mr. Treacher that if he again  put his umbrella anywhere iu his direction, he (Mr. Treacher) would have uo  appetite for turkey or anything else on  tho.next day.  "I'll givo you a (sovereign for it,"  said Mr. Treacher 'desperately.   _  "You're intoxicatod." said the sleepy  man with dignity, and composed himself to slumber again.  Mr. Treacher flushed angrily, but felt  too miserable to attempt any retort, and  sat back, staring enviously at tho bird  on tho rack. A dishonest man, he told  himself, could easily make off with the  turkey at the noxt station. It was fortunate for tho sleepy man that he was  travelling with Mr. Joseph Treacher, of  Treacher & Nield, shipping merchants;  otherwise   "No," said Mr. Treacher, firmly, as  an idea leaped into his mind.  "No," ho repeated less firmly a few  seconds later, as ho stared longingly at  the mat basket en the rack, just such  another bag as he had carried proudly  from Leadenhall Market.  Suddenly he tore a leaf out of his  pocketbook.  "1 am leaving a sovoreign to pay  for tho bird," he wrote; and then,  wrapping the coin in the paper, he  placed it in the stranger's upturned silk  hat that stood on the seat beside him.  "J must get out at Maythorpe," he  muttered, as he took the bird down  from the rack, and, buttoning up his  overcoat, stood ready to alight, dreading that the grinding of tho brakes  would wake his sleeping victim.  ".Maythorpe: "  The solitary porter on duty shouted  the name loudly as the train came to a  stop alongside the suow-covered and  ill-lighted platform, and Mr. 'Preacher  cursed him beneath his breath as he  jumped quickly out and gently closed  the door.  The stranger slept en, and Mr. Treacher, who had only once or twice used this  station before, saw the red lights of  the train disappear into the darkness  as he unbuttoned his coat to show an  officious porter his season ticket.  Then, with umbrella in one hand and  the mat basket iu tho othor, ho set off  triumphantly for home.  True, thc walk was rather over a mile  more than if he had gone to Coulsford,  and the roads, if anything, worse; but  he did not care���������������������������he had his turkey.  He stumbled along manfully for nearly a couide of miles, and, seeing no  signs of habitation, began to think hc  had lost his way.    Then to hia joy he  ���������������������������spied the village constablo going his  rounds, and discovered thafc he was on  the right, road, aud -within half a mile  of his residence.  The constable wished him a "Merry  Christmas," and received half-a-crown.  and then Mr. Treacher joyfully resumed  his tramp.  Only half a mile more, then a cheery  lire, something hot to keep away a possible chill, the turkey to givo his wife,  together wilh the excuse of trains being late to account for his tardy arrival  home.  Then the look of joy left Mr. Treacher's face, and ho stood in tho middle  of the dark road, white and trembling.  What a fool ho had boon to speak  fco that policeman!  Regardless of tho enow that swirled  and eddied around him, he stood there  thinking over the desperate situation,  and slowly realizing that, instead of  doing all in his power to avoid detection, he had dene everything to put  thc police on his track.  .By getting out at Maythorpe, ho had  diad^to-sho\v-^his-seaso!uiickat4^th(ii_pc_E__  ter may or may not havo noticed hia  name, and would certainly be able to  describe him. Then, the constable knew  him, and had met him carrying the  turkey on the road from Maythorpe station to his house.  Beads of perspiration stood out on  his forehead as he slowly resumed his  walk. Suppose at Coulsford or at the  next station tho man gave notico of  the robbery, ho might be arrested that  night. 'I up stranger might even deny  that he had left a sovereign.  Christinas in jail!  Mr. Treacher told himself that he was  about twenty different varieties of a  fool, but it afforded him uo consolation.  The lights of the dozen or bo villas, of  which his was one. cheered him but  little, though he schooled himself to  -how no ucitation before his wife. It  was possible that the man would prefer the sovereign tc tho turkey; he  mitrlit feel that lo prosecute a respectable, middle-aged city man would make  him look like a fool, as it would tho  accused.  But tho suspense was terrible.  "You're late, Joseph," said Mrs.  Treacher, as he entered the snug dining-  room, and laid the turkey on the table.  "But I see vou've got tho turkey.  What is its weight?"  '' FiC "     Mr.   Treacher    chocked  himself, remembering that he had no  idea of the weight of the bird belonging to his victim, 6ave that it had seemed very heavy on the long tramp from  the station. "I���������������������������er���������������������������think���������������������������er���������������������������it's  about what you said, my dear."  "I trust it is," said his wife, shortly, and bore the bird eff to tho kitchen  to be weighed.  "It's a vcry fair turkey," she said  on her return, which caused Mr. Treach  er   to   start   guiltily   from   his   gloom,,  contemplation   of  the  fire;  "it  weighs  exactly fifteen pounds."  "That's strange!" murmured Mr.  Treacher���������������������������"that is." he added hastily  ���������������������������"it's funny I should have got such  a good bird,at about the size you wanted.    I mean- ".  "Joseph,"said his wife, severely, "I  don't believe you know what you. do  mean." .,  All the evening Mr. Treacher started  guiltily when a knock or ring came to  tho door.:> Each moment he expected  to sop the portly village constable enter  his sitting-room.  Two neighbors came for a game of  whist, and he lost what little reputation  he had possessed as a player.  Christinas Day and Boxing Day'wet-  certainly not merry tor .Mr. Treacher.  Each mouthful he took0 of the stolon  bird almost choked him. He pictured  himself in the dock, heard the magistrate saying that the act must have been  committetd as a drunken freak, aad  fining him heavily as a warning.  Oh, how his friends'would chaff him.  Coulsford would be an impossible place  to reside in. His partner, already far  too pushing; would take a still moro  prominent position.  On Boxing Night he was so miserable  at the thought of tho morrow that l*e  sat up late with his two brothers-in-  law, dreading to gc to bod and dream  of disgrace.  Mr. Treacher awoke tho next morning with a foreboding,,of ill to come.  It was possible that tho police might  have postponed action until after-, the  holidays, or that the victim of the robbery had not yet set them on his track.  In his misery he scarcely beard the  opinions of Mrs. Treacher* ou his behavior in retiring so lato on the previous night. He realized vaguely that  he was being compared to all the criminals of recent- years, greatly to the advantage cf the latter.  The road lo the station was, if possible, worse that when Mr. Treacher  had stumbled along it on the morning  of Christmas Eve, for a thaw had sot  in the previous day, and he had to  wade through a lane' of brownish-white  slush, that defied any ordinary boats  to deny its admittance. But Mr.  Treacher had no heart to be angry.  Mechanically he tipped the beaming and  attentive railway servants, and then  stood on the platform, lost in thought,  waiting for the London train, rejoiced  to find that none cf the men he know  were travelling by it.  Tho train camo in sharp to time, for  there was little traffic that day, and  Mr. Treacher entered the first first-clasa  smoking compartment he camo to.  but mind, you chaps, you must  n't let it go any farther, or I should  be the laughing-stocic of the place."  Mr.. Treacher safc as one turned to  stone.  A man sitting next but one to him  was leaning  forward   and    talkiiiy   to  two others, evidently friends���������������������������and the  .nan was the man from whom be had  -.tolen the turkey!  With trembling hands he held up his  lewspaper in front of him, and listcn-  -d eagerly to what his victim had to  ���������������������������ay.  "���������������������������Rummiest  thing  going,"   he  wont  >n.     "f   had   a   pretty   busy   timo   on  Hiristnias   Eve:   started   early   in   the  iiorning, and   felt  tired  out   by  lunch-  ime, and [ had only just time to get a  I rink   in   the   refreshment-room  before  ���������������������������atchiug the train.    Now, my wife had  isked  me to get a turkey  in  town, so  knowing  that   my  memory's  rotten,  I  ���������������������������lought  it early and sent my oflicc-boy'  'own with it;'but, hang me," if f didn't  forget all about  it.    As I  finished, my  drink, I saw a turkey on a stool beside  me,  and picked  it  up  and  walked  off  with it, thinking it was my own."  "Awkward for the other chap!" said  one of the men.  "Rotton. I wish T could find him  and oxplain; but, listen, here comes the  joke. Tn the train a fussy little, chap  offered me a sovereign for the bird!"'  A roar of laughter came from the  othci men. Mr. Treacher's face became  crimson, his eyes were staring from bis  head, and he seemed on thc verge o������������������  in ; poplectic fit.  ''T was half asleep ami I lon't know  what I said to him; but, of course, at  the time, I thought the turkey waa  mine, so 1 choked him off, and musr,  -ha-v e^go n e4-o=-sle. p-aga i iw=-=A-n-y-h o w,-=j us-t=  before we got lo our station T woke np,  and .when 1 looked for the turkcv it was  'joixe, but in my hat was a soveroign  done up in tlrs piece of paper."  Ho passed the paper around.  Mr. Treacher, deeply interested in  the leadincr article, had the newspaper  spread upside down in front of him.  He had stolen his &-wn bird; he had  paid a sovereign to obtain it from tho  man who-liad no right, to it; ho. had  spoilt his Christinas day   The paper was read with amusement  by the two men, and then passed back.  "T tell you the shock woke mo up  thoroughly, and when I got homo and  found that, my boy had brought tho  turkey I had ordered down all right,  f was beastly worried. I'd done somo  poor brute out of his Christmas dinner,  and stood a good chanco of being run  in or something unpleasant, but thore  was nothing to be done. I'm going  into the refreshment-room to see if the  chap left his name. Probably he'll call  in today, and they'll take his name  and address, and lot mo know. 1 ean'b  remember what tho wretched little  scoundrel who pinched the bird was like,  so I can't hand him tho balanco it  there's any due."  Mr. Treacher sat very still as the  train rolled onwards; he was not taking  any risks, and kept the paper befor.  his face.  "Suppose no one claims the monoyf"  asked one of the men.  "Oh, T shall wait a week, and if nothing happens. 1 shall givo the quid to  the local hospital."  The lecal hospital benefited to the extent of one pound.

Perhaps you may  L. disagree with me. Then let me suggest that you try  your new gown without it.  What does the finishing touch do? It completes the  mental picture that evory woman should have of herself in  her new gown. Sometimes it takes a woman a long time to  look the way she wants, but it is not just what she wants.  There must be the last touch, of that great artist, Taste.  ..-...*;_ .TOT.  ^  ���������������������������. yv,_ ',  '. * * _. \ * _       . s    \       % ^ _ > * ^ _���������������������������  'J V������������������      v_*l>^ ������������������_���������������������������     <   V      '       -  -    ���������������������������'-   "������������������  Velvet and Iiace Hat  _-S\. ,*Vi  , 1  This touch is always a slight one���������������������������ofteu the addition of  the most trifling- accessory��������������������������� but from it comes the expression. It is the correct expression in dress for which women  ���������������������������lould strive. The merest accessory should be thought out  with care. It must not only bc right in itself, but it must  tear the right relation to the costume of which it forms a  part and it must be^nghtly worn.  Today the scarf plays an Important part in correct gowning. So much so, in fact, that more than half of the newest  -French frocks are made with a matching or an artistically  contrasting scarf. Indeed, fabrics and such lovely ones,  too, are now manufactured exclusively for scarfs. -There  are exquisite creations in such shades as peach blow with  fairy spider-webs of gold woven through them, and there are  changeable chiffons which in somejights look a lovely soff  blue and in others have the gold and pink of a sunset's glow.  And these fairy-like fabrics, too, often shimmer with threads  of gold or silver.  But it is not'only with evening frocks that the scarf is  -^tbe=n.ode=this^seasoi_7=rt���������������������������is-quite=t_e=-righl. aeccsso.-y=-for--the-  ealling costume and for certain types of street gowns. The  fashionable black and white touch is often introduced in  the shoulder-scarf and muff, and the new idea, is to have the  scarf white one side and black the other or vice versa.   ,  A fetching scarf fresh from Paris is of white moire bordered with white chiffon and lined with black chiffon.  There is a muff to match this scarf, not a very practical  one, to be sure, for it is a creation of white moire and black  chiffon. But it is decidedly necessary for the right effect.  Such a scarf and mull, set as this, of course, is only appro  priafe for dress occasions. However. Ihe model is a very  ���������������������������mart one" to develop into other materials which would be  more practical and less striking in effect. For instance, m  royal blue velvet, with an edge of black marabout or black  chiffon and with a muff to match, it would be extremely good  looking, or in gray chiffon with a mole-skin border. In both  eases, the lining should be of a contrasting color and preferably of satin, rather than chiffon.  Girdles and belts make telling dress accessoiies. They  count for much more than one would imagine. One of the  newest ideas this season is the soft girdle with long ends.  Its chic effect, however, depends almost entirely on the way  in which il is worn. The ends generally depend from a rosette or a number of upstanding loops, and this finish should  come at the left side of the front, just a I rille toward the  back. In some cases the girdle is worn about the waist just  above the norma! waist-line, but the rosette is arranged well  up on the left side, so that it is- almost under the arm, the  ends  hanging from  there.  The softest of silks and satins are used for these girdles  with long ends. Having tho ends simply frayed out as a finish, giving a fringed effect, is considered smart. A decoration  of hemstitching for the long ends is also extremely new and  very  fashionable.  A simple, but attractive, girdle in made of soft changeable blue silk, showing different tones of blue. On the inner  side of the girdle, on the left side, are neatly fastened the  two cuds, the loops standing up above the girdle. These  ends have for their decoration a row of wide hemstitching,  worked in vcry dark blue'. A coarse bilk crocheted edge frequently in a decidedly contesting color is another new finish  for the ends of a silk or satin girdle, whilo below the crocheted border hangs silk fringe in the same shade as the girdle  and ends. Such an accessory is extremely smart in black  with the fringe black and the'silk crocheted touch worked in  brilliant emerald green or cerise. The ends should be looped  over one another at the left side, so that ono will be longer  than the other.  Sectional belts of either silk or suede, the sections outlined with a piping in contrasting color or a contrasting  material, are extremely good stylo this season._ Thc newest  ���������������������������re very wide, measuringat least five inches.   Pipings, by tho  way, have never been more modish. Some of the broad  girdles of soft satin, which are so high that they form a  ���������������������������orselet, are bound with a piping of velvet or satin in a darker, shade. These girdles, though they fasten invisibly, are  generally trimmed with buttons having a velvet centre, and  .wo rows of such piping as a decoration.  Collar-and-cuff sets, if made of the correct material, always provide an attractive finishing touch. To wear with a  -ilk gown, a net collar made in two scant ruffles, with cuffs to  natch, and trimmed with a beaded design is effective and  new. The small, beautifully tinted wooden beads used in  a scroll pattern make a novel decoration for a collar-and-  :uff set which is either made of coarse net, suede or of velvet,  tccording to the frock with which they are to be worn.  Sometimes, very charming effects can be obtained if small  iridescent beads are used, though they are not as new as the  colored wooden beads.  A very new little finishing touch, but a very smart one, is  to use pearl buttons with'a tailored suit. For instance, if  one's new tailored suit is dark blue., pearl buttons sewed on  with dark blue sewing-silk give a very fetching touch.  Bits of tapestry are being used to form very smart-  looking accessories this season. A cord'eliere' bag made of  tapestry and mounted in dull silver with such long silk  handles that the bag reaches far.below the knees is a much-  to-be-desired dress accessory. Of course, the older and  rarer tbe  tapestry, the more the bag is prized.  "When a tapestry bag is being carried as a finishing touch  of a costume, it is well to introduce just a bit of the same  tapestry somewhere in the gown, perhaps, in odd-shaped  revers, in the belt, or even for the crown of the high close-  fitting hat.  Plowers, as a dress aceessoy, arc very much the vogue,  but they are flowers of a new sort which Fashion is favoring.  Silk and satin and chiffon are used in making them and indeed they are very lorely. However, the-niajority do not follow the natural blooms in their, coloring. There are blue-  gray roses aud fat little rosebuds in shaded tones of violet,  but they produce just the smartest effects. Sometimes one  large rose is used to fasten the girdle at the' left side, or in an  evening frock, a tunic of chiffon is caught with a trailing  vine of satin  aud chiffon  flowers.    ���������������������������''  The butterfly makes a smart accessory, .too, not only for  hair ornaments but as a belt decoration. A large black  velvet butterily makes a very charming'finish for a velvet or  satin girdle which is higher at the back than the front. "The  butterfly looks its best made of black velvet with,the wings  bound in some delicate shade of satin, light blue,' rose pink  or a lovely tone of yellow. When giving,the finishing touch  to a hair ornament, the butterfly is quite-small and such materials as gold of silver gauze are used- for;the -wings, which  are then studded with iridescent spangles. :/. .  Sometimes the velvet butterfly, lights _on -.a hat. -Por  instance, a black velvet draped toque will'have in place of  two velvet wings at the side ot atttlie'_back;;_.:-butterfly, not  a very natural-looking, one, however, for if .the hat is black,  the-butterfly is black, too, with the inner, side" of bis'wTings  in some very vivid si .id<_ of satin such as emerald green or  Venetian blue of oran'ge... Butterflies".used in .this capacity  never have the wings spangled. ' The butterfly is always o"f  the same fabric as the-hat and is really principally used  to introduce a striking color note which is given in the wings.  "*    *    "U~     '_)- .

Some of our  colleges are intending-to start courses  in 'aviation, and tentative instruction  may have begun, but the . first full  course of this sort seems to have been  established at the Sorbonne, and the  French intend evidently to take the  lead at once in this regard. We translate below part of an abstract in the  Hevuo .eientifiquo (Paris. October 15)  of a recent lecture by Carlo l.ourlet, beforo the International Commission of  .Mathematical Instruction at Brussels.  Said  the speaker:  "We shall not mention the military  schools of Ohalais-Meudon and Mour-  inelon-le-Grand, which aro quite special  in character, nor the apprentice schools  founded by various builders, solely to  train pilots and teach their pupils how  to use their aeroplanes, since these have  no scientific character.  "At present, there is regularly organized instruction in aviation in the following places in France:  "1. At the University,, of Paris,  where, thanks to the generous gifts of  Messrs. Deutsch, de la .\rcurthe, and  Sakharoff, there have been founded a  Course of Aeronautics at thc Sorbonne,  conducted by Professor _\[archis, and a.  station for research and experiment in  aviation, directed by Professor 11 aura in.   .

It receives former  pupils of the Polytechnic School, students of the Faculty of Sciences already  licensed, aud pupils admittetd to the  course. The studies last one year and  the student receives on graduation, after examination, a diploma as Aeronautical  Engineer.

BANTON,  The following ofiicers were elected:  President, C. W. Little; vice-president  G. C. Salt; secretary-treasurer, C. S.  Handcock. Directors: G. R. Lawes,  \V. Ahier, W. H. Cooke, James Emeny, and H. Guildcrmeister. E. Bennett and \V. B. Kellett were elected  auditors, and Chas. W. Little delegate to the Central Institute, with  C. S.  Handcock alternate.  President Little, in his opening re- ���������������������������  marks explained the difficulties under j  ��������������������������� which  the   institute    was placed the '  ' past season.   It was organized  after  ��������������������������� all the members had paid into the ,'  Armstrong Institute the membership |  fee for the year,   therefore they had ,  'no funds to work    with, either from)  the Government   or as fees from the  members.     The opening season, how-:  | ever, promised   to    see this difficulty .  . overcome, and    from now on the In- ;  ' stitute    would   take   up the work of .  ; thoroughly    organizing   the    district ;  and tearing    for   the interests of the j  men engaged in agricultural pursuits, i  It was moved and carried that the '[  Department be   asked to change the !  name of the   Institute from Mara to  that of the Northern Okanagan, ancl  the boundaries   were    changed to in-  elude Sicamous.    They    now take in  ��������������������������� everything north of Enderby to Sicamous.     It is the intention to erect a  powder house at Grindrod, which will  be looked after by Mr. Handcock,who  ' resides at that point. j  :    Extensive    work   was   laid out for '  : tbe    approaching    year,   the purpose j  [ being to take up   with    the   Department the    matter    of Dairy  School,  i Fruit Packing School and sto'ck judging by score card.     Also the matter  ; of co-operative buying and selling.  1    Following is the   report of the Executive Committee:  |    The rules   and    regulations require  ! that at the Annual   Meeting1 the Executive officers    for the current year  j shall, through    their    secretary,  present to the meeting in writing a carefully prepared report of the proceedings of the   year,   in which shall be  stated the number of Institute meetings held, the attendance at each, the  tuts, ancl rather than run the Tnsti-  .tute into debt at its inauguration by  bringing in lecturers and speakers,  they havc carried out a waiting  policy.  ��������������������������� They have, however, to report that  j the question of boundaries which was  .raised at the organization meeting,  was referred by the Superintendent of  Institutes back again to the respective secretaries of the two Institutes.  The result of that reference we have  great pleasure in submitting' for your  endorsation to-day. It is that thc  proposed new district shall comprise  the following places: Mara, North  Enderby, Mabel Lake Valley, Enderby  City and suburbs, Salmon Arm road,  Grindrod, and north to Sicamous  Junction. And we beg to report  that by this arrangement we acquire  a membership of 82, as contained in  a list submitted by Mr. Bird.  It may- be pertinent to remark that  if the    annual    Government grant is  pro rata that    of    our paid member-  ; ship, which   for   1910 was only 2, we  , would be having a very meagre start.  ; Under    the    circumstances,   however,  ���������������������������your Executive deem it a matter for  I diplomatic adjustment, and point to  ! the fact that   as   all    local fees for  ��������������������������� 1910 went to Armstrong, ancl that as  iour members    have   been deprived of  j the benefit of the usual meetings, we  , think on    these   grounds the Central  I Executive have ample -ustification for  bestowing    the   customary  grant on  the new District,    and we would advise that in    the   election of a delegate to attend the coming convention  of the Central    institute, to be held  at Victoria on    the    10th,    11th and  12th of January���������������������������ancl   which election  must   take   place    to-day���������������������������we would  suggest that the delegate be furnished  .with a mandate from this meeting to'  press the   question   with the Deputy  Minister   and    enlist his influence to  that end.

It is Simon's intention to break this colt as a yearling,  and then as a two-year-old place him in  the hands of a competent trainer.

The  tnessenger waited in the dimly lighted  iallway. his cap off, his round, boyish  .face alight with anticipation.  Back in the studio came Chap's rolling tones, a bit husky from the cold  ie had caught crossing the ferry in the  storm, but still sweet and happy, with  jnst a .suggestion of a lisp. Chap was  proud of that lisp. It marked an epoch  in hia life, when, as he had said, "a  perfectly good toof dropped out."_ They  lad treated the event with the distinction it deserved, he and thc girlish person he called "Muwer." They had act-  ad quite foolishly over it, wrapped it in  ink  cotton and' sent  it  off in a tiny  welry-box as a present to the fatherly way out West, with a line to- the  -.Sect that Chap had made it all himself, and it had taken him sis and a half  years to do it.  *'Car-rull,   bruvvers,   car-rulll   Car-rull  jovfulleo!  '���������������������������Car-rull the good tidings, car-rull merri-  lee!"  Somehow  tho  tears   rose  quickly   to  -Helen's eves as she listened, and almost  Winded   her  as   she  read   the   message  .rom the father-boy.    Ic was brief and  . most sadly tc the point.  "Trains blocked by storm. Money as  _oou as I deliver goods at office in New  York.    Cheer  up.    Merry  Christmas.  "Bob."  That was all. And it was Christmas  Sve, and sho had just seventeen cents  on hand.  "is���������������������������is this message prepaid?" She  looked up at the boy anxiously.  "Vessum." He griuned a bit sheepishly aud handed her a little dingy card  with a verse printed on it.  "Christmas is coming, turkeys are fat.  Please drop a nickel in your messenger's hat."  ��������������������������� In spite of her trouble Helen smiled  end nodded. Back she went softly  ..rough the short hallway and found  ier purse. Five cents of the seventeen  ���������������������������jras laid in the messenger's palm and  ie went away whistling Eoftly.  Chap was curled up on the window-  seat. Out of doors horns were blowing^  bells were chiming, even the clang of  ihe street-car gongs sounded festive and  musical. Down-stairs in the studio  below somebody was singing; it sounded  like tbe curly-haired old gentleman,  _hap said���������������������������like the way he would sing  if he could sing.  Helen laid the telegram on the mantel  and tried to think clearly. Not that  she minded for herself. So long as  Bob would not be with her, all the  ffitonev in the world could not make it a  saerrv Christmas for her. lie had been  away - two- -weeks, -on- a business ��������������������������� trip  Vest for the company. It was uot an  .specially important trip, only that Bob  was the'latest man on the staff and. as  the chief had told hiin before he started, "it was up to'him to make good."  Ancl she had been willing for him to  go, so willing, even though New York  was an untraveled wilderness to her  and Christmas lay just ahead. They  __ad come East from a little manufacturing town in Ohio, where Bob had  ������������������een editor of a trade journal. His work  iad attracted attention in industrial  circles, for while it was uot brilliant,  still it showed he had a good grasp on  ihings as thev are, with an excellent  idea of how much better they might be.  So they had given up the position on  the trade journal, aud their little home,  and had come to New York.  "Let's not take an apartment,"  Helen had suggested ."There's only  Chap and us, and we can easily get  along with two or three rooms wherel  can do jight house-keeping and we'll  n!u_h^ri'ghtf=irf=rhtH.egimring. "  cave so    It had been pure fun hunting for that  ������������������tndio apartment. They had reached  the city in the morning, a clear, fine  November morning, when whiter had  seemed months ' away. After three  tours' search for a reasonable place to  live in. Helen had taken Chap and had  ���������������������������willingly rested in the ladies' writing-  room of one of the big hotels, while the  father-boy went forth to find a nest.  And hc had found one, such a pleasant,  well-furnished suite that Helen" looked  at him doubtfully wheu she saw it.  "Now don't worry," Bob had told  her, jcvously, aa he had turned ou the  Lights and tossed Chap over on the big  divan and lifted the doubtful person  bodily in his arms over to a most inviting green wicker chair. "The first  month's rent is paid and we're here,  ind you can see all the way across tho  square out of the front window.?, aud I  don't have any car-fare to pay."  "I fink it's protty nice," Chap had  said politely, that "first night, after  Helen had prepared dinner on a two-  burner gas-plate, and they were eating  it picnic style on the front room mis-  eion table. .".Wherejb the garden?"  Bob had pointed c/ut of the window.  Bight before them lay Washington  Square, with the Memorial Arch ahead,  and beyond Fifth Avenue, with its'narrowing' prospective of what Chap had  called "flower lights."  "That's our garden, ho*ey-boy," said  Bob, and Chap had been content.  ; There were quite a number of pcople  in the quiet, five-story building, but  Helen decided they were not neighborly,  for nobody ever spoke to her, and nobody knocked at her door except Mrs.  Dorrity, the stout, placid janitress. But  Chap "held a different o-pinion. While  Helen was busy at her -work, he would  40 around with Mrs. Dorrity from  .udio to studio, as she made her clean-  ug-up rounds. It was from him that  rleleii found out just who her neighbors  ���������������������������vere.  "There's a lady way up on the top  loor with a typewriter, and she always  *ays hush to me and kisses me and  ,'ives me some salted almonds. Then  ;here's a man in the back room and  ae's always taking a bath, so I haven't  1L.11 him yet. but he calls out to me  ���������������������������very morning."  "What does he say?" asked Helen.  "He says, 'Hello, buddy, how's  hings coingi" Aud I tell him they're  ^oing pretty well. Then iu the rooms  tack of us, muvver, there's two love-ly  ,'irls. And they've got a fire escape all  ixed up with flowers, and a yawning  iver it���������������������������"  "Awning, sonny boy?"  "Yawning. And they've got a big  collie in there named Tan. and they've  got the front thing out of their grate,  muvver."  Chap had stopped there. There was a  grate iu their apartment, also-, but the  "front thing" was fastened in, for the  radiator gave sufficient heat.  "They've got it open." Chap had  continued, in a secretive' way, "so IIE  can eefc in without a latch-key."  "He?" Helen opened her eyes wider,  Bob to think of sending that message,  it explained the lack of toys, the lack  of money, the lack of everything Christ-  niasy. When Chap came up-stairs,  sleepy-eyed, but munching on a hugo  square of pink pop-corn that Mrs, Dorrity had given him, she undressed him  and put him to bed on the couch in tho  back room. Just then the buzzer sounded in the hall, so unexpectedly that it  startled her. She opened the door, half  expectiug to see another messenger-boy,  and dreading him, for a second nickel  had gone to the last one. But the hall  was empty. The elevator was down at  the first Soot. But on the floor beside  hcr doorway, were several parcels. Won-  deringly. Helen gathered them up and  went back into the front studio. There  wore three, all good-sized bundles, wrapped in white paper and tied with holly  ribbon. To each was fastened a card,  and on them it read:  "I'm on the way.���������������������������Yoiir3 truly, S.C."  Helen thought. Who could have sent  them? It must be Mrs. Dorrity out of  her big kindheartedness. who had rummaged around and found some gifts for  Chap. But before she could think clearly the buzzer sounded again.  the miracle repeated itself. The hall  was empty, silent. Yet at her door  were a number of tissue-wrapped bundles.    And  to each one a  card.    They  A LOVELY WATCH FREE  A Solid Gold Watch for ladies . gentlemen, costs t_S to 150. Don't waste your  money.

"Kate, that's the littlest girl, says he  always comes down their chimney."  Helen .was silent, and .after a pause  Chap had suggested, "Don't you think  we oughter take out our grate, too? He  can't get through hot-water pipeth, can  he ? ���������������������������''  Chap's voice roused her uow, as he  .poke.to her from the window-seat,  "Muvver. can 1 have your latch-key  juth for.to-night..' I want to tie it on tbe  end of a thing and let it down from the  window to the front door, tho he can  get in."  Tho buzzer at the hall door sounded  again nnd Helen welcomed the interruption. Tt was another messenger-boy.  And the telegram was for Chap. She almost laughed as she read. It was so  like Bob to send it to him to save the  day. They looked at it together, after  tho messenger-boy had gone, she kneeling beside him, with one arm holding  him close to her. Chap's face was intensely serious, and well it might be,  for that telegram bore amazing tidings  from an important personage.  "Reindeer have run away. Be at your  houBo as soon as I catch them.  "_. C."  "Do ��������������������������� do   you    know    what   that  meanth!" Chap's eyes were wide and  startled.    "That meanth  HIM!   'S.C  Santa Clauth!"  he  pleaded.  "'Cause she'th  expecting  "I shouldn't wonder," said Helen  reverently. Chap took the telegram  from  the table.  "I want to show it to Mrs. Dorrity,"  him, too."  He was goue quite a long timo. Helen  worked until her eyes felt tired, a little  smile on her lips.    It was eplondid of  .on 't get those balls, though, by-  m-by,  Ise goin' to cry���������������������������an' cry���������������������������an' cry.)  wore all directed to "Chap."   Ono card  broke into verse:  The reindeer have gone and I'm stranded tiat.  Please  drop  a  nickel in  Santa  Claus'  -._ bm.  And there was a picture went with  it, a tiny sketch of the old gentlemau  perched blithely on a snow-drift, with  his pack about him and the vanishing  horns of the runaways in the distance.  Helen studied it for.a. moment and took  a step toward Chap's bed. But at the  archway between the rooms she paused.  He bad wanted to hang up his stocking  at the grate, and she had begged  him not to, knowing the disappointment that awaited his faith. Vet he  bad  hung  it  up, hung it on  the door-  WOULD NOT'BE .WITHOUT  BABY'S OWN TABLETS  Mothers having once used Baby's  Own Tablets for their little ones would  uot be without them. These Tablets are  a never failing remedy for the little  ills such as constipation, colic, worms,  colds, etc., that afflict 60 many little  ones. And then, too, they can be given  with absolute safety to the youngest  child for they are sold under the guarantee of a government analyst to contain no opiate or other harmful drug.  Concerning them Mrs. Chas. Whatley,  Peterboro, Out., writes: "T have used  Baby's Own Tablets for my little girl  and have found them to be of great  value. Others to whom I have recommended the Tablets say they would not  be withoue them." Sold by medicine  dealers or by mail at :.") cents a box  from The Dr. Williams' Mediciue Co.,  Brockville, Ont.  knob of the wardrobe at the foot of  his bed, and tbe unfaltering trust shown  by that one lone, skinny, little black  stocking filled Helen's eyea with tears.  She went back to the table intending  to put the smaller parcels in the stocking unopened, but again the buzzer  sounded.  And as she went toward the door a  bright idea came to her. She did not  open the door this time. Silently she  stood close to it and listened. It seemed several minutes before she caught  the sound of smothered laughter, then  something went skish against the door  and she heard excited whispers. But  at the very first hum from the buzzer  she opened the door. A tree fell toward  her, a short, broad, fragrant evergreen,  its branches brushing the burlapped  walls, and there were many parcels at  its base this time, but Helen stepped  bv it into the hall, and faced���������������������������Santa  Claus!  He was tall and in hia shirt sleeves.  He backed away hastily.  "Caught red-handed, Barney boy!"  called a voice from the stairs, and the  door of the back studio apartment opened and two heads looked out reproach-  fullv.  "Oh, Barney!";  Baruey looked confused and warm.  In the gloom of the upper stairway several faces looked down. He cleared his  throat and stammered.  "Whv, to tell the truth, Mrs.���������������������������er���������������������������  Mrs." '  "Mother-of-Chap," Barney took it up  happily. "We are the rescue party.  'I he reindeer ran away, you know, and  we���������������������������auyway, we went after them "and  we're just helping unload, that's all.  Can I help you in with the tree?"  "Can't we all help?" asked a plain-  tivp voice from the back stu _io. and he-  fore Helen,"the stranger, could catch her  breath, she found herself back in her  own- apartment, with__-'a circle of her  neighbors around her, all whispering,  ".Hush!" -.   -  .  " They made" her sit down on the divan  and give orders. Barney and the man  from - upstairs who took baths . every  morning, set up- the tree. Then the  girls trimmed it, draped gold and silver  ropes of glittering tissue over its dark  rich boughs," hung dangling 'ornaments  at every tip, tied chocolate dolls and  strange candy animals aud dazzling angels all around.  Helen felt swept off her feet with the  suddenness of the change. When the  tree was trimmed to the satisfac-.  tion of all they raised' the windows and listened to tho midnight  bells pealing out their sweet old-world  tidings to Manhattan. The same Manhattan that had seemed to Heleu so  lonely, so selfish, so. far away in her  hour of trouble. And suddenly it came  to her, as she listened-and looked at the.  eager, happy face? around her, that  Christmas is not a thing of environment, of money, of locality. It is tho  great gladsome spirit of good-will in  the hearts of men and women, the spirit  that breaks down the little barriers conventionality   hedges   us   around   about  "Guess he did, buddy," said Bob solemnly.  "I hopo he went to everybody in the  building," added Chap thoughtfully.  "'Cause I showed them all the telegram, so they'd be sure and know, iho  reason why be couldn't come."  Helen-and Bob-looked blankly at each  other. That telegram, betraying the  condition of their exchequer, had gone  the rounds of the studios, as a plausible  excuse of why Santa Claus was delayed.  Chap glanced over his shoulder aad  wondered why his father had suddenly-  gathered "muvver" up into- his arms  and seated himself in the green rocking-  chair, just as if she had been a little"  girl, all cuddled up in her pink kimono.  But Cuap was a perlect gentleman,  and he said nothing to interrupt them,  imt lo-fii vvhcii he hfiird hor crying softly. There was ample excuse, he considered, for even a. grown-up mother to  cry. It isn't every Christmas the reindeer run awav.  "I guess we'd better go so the kiddie  won't wako up," whispered Nell,  Kate's sister, as she put her arm around  Heleu and shook her hand. "Now, you  cheer up. lady mother, and go to bed.  I only wish we could sec his eyes when  he wakes up. Make him stay in bed till  you light up the candle?.''  [Men promised faithfully that she  would, and thanked them over and over  until Barney said his ears were turning  as red "as his hair from omharrasment.  And when it was over and she stood  alone again in the studio, shc knelt nt  the window and cried softly over their  kindne?''.  But it was Chap who wakened her  Christmas tnornint;. She felt his warm  hand on . r cheek, as he knelt beside  her in his flannel pajamas.  "Sav, muvver," he said cxcitedlv,  "HE'S boon  here."  She slipped on a kimono and went out  iii ihe studio. It was still dark. And  while she hunted for a match, there  came the familiar click of a key in the  outer lock and the sound of Bob's tread  in the hall. In a moment she was infolded close in his arms, with Chap  dancing madly around.  "Dear, I couldn't get in a minute  sooner." Bob was saying, as he kissed  ber and patted her long brown hair.  MTho train was snowed in this side of  Altoona. Don't you care, Chap, old  man. the reindeer have run away, but  we'll catch them to-morrow sure."  "They're caught,"cried Chap, frantically. "He's been here, dad. Can't  you sec he has!"  As the light flared up, Bob stood and  looked at the tree. Helen was lighting  the little gaily-colored candles one by  one, and each bit of gold and silver tinsel caught the gleam. Chap put his  hands where his pr.ckets should have  been and stared with a great, marveling satisfaction at the whole proceeding.  "I knew he'd come," he said,  "Gueth somebody caught the reindeer  all right, dad."  THE CHRISTMAS PLUM-PUDDINO  (liy -Emma Richards)  r\ HRISTMAS   without   plum^pudding  \J    would seem like the play of Hamlet with "Hamlet left out," and-'  while you ean  buy a fairly good  pudding in a tin can, the home-made article  gives far more satisfaction and a larger quantity  for the same expenditure.

MAKE YOUR CROPS PAY  We all know that the seeding' conditions in the Northwest are peculiar and  trying.    Sometimes  the  soil   is  so dry  that-it���������������������������blr.-wq .nvpr��������������������������� in.n .lhf��������������������������� ndjnin .ng-  eouuty, while on the other hand, when  wet. it is as sticky as glue. The large  acreages sown demand the use of the  largest size drills, and the draft of the  machine should be such that ordinary  teams will be able to do thc work without undue exertion. The furrow openers, whether single disk, double disk or  shoe, must be of a patti'rn that will  work properly. Under all conditions the  drill must be able to plant the seed  at an even-depth, This is imperative,-  because even sowing means even growing, uniform ripening and high grading  of the grain. This is especially vital  to the Northwestern farmer, on account  of the short growing season, the frost  leaving tho ground late in the spring  ancl coming early in the fall. The feed  miM be abh"> to handle in wide rango of  quantities all seeds that are sown with  a grain drill, including llax, treatod  wheat, etc. It must be a positive force  feed. The frame should be able to support its load and not sag. All of these  conditions arc fully met in the Light  Draft Holler Bearing Kentucky DrilL  This drill was made especially for the  Northwest, after years of experience in  the fields. It is decidedly a Northwestern machine���������������������������nothing else. It ii a  drill that can and will do your work as  it should be done���������������������������a drill that will stand  hard usage. The double disks and single  disks have bearings that will last"���������������������������'.,. nd  that are properly lubricated. Thoee  bearings are dust-proof and make the  disks very lively in action. The shoe haa  a tool steel removable and renewable  heel that readily scotitb and has long  wear in it. The hoppers have large  carrying capacity. The frame i9 of  choicest steei, thoroughly braced and  trussed. Go to your local dealer and see  one. Send for a Kentucky catalogue to  The American Seeding-Machine Co., Incorporated, King and James Sts., Winnipeg, and go to'your local dealer and  insist on seeing the Kentucky.

KELLETT, Secretary.  f    The following resolutions were su b-  mitted and   passed,    and will be put  :"before the   .Central   Institute by the  j delegate elected  at the annual meeting, at the January convention:  "That, seeing the Government has  a substantial surplus, it be asked to  furnish 'land clearing outfits to be  worked at cost.' "  "That the bounty on coyotes be increased to ?5, the present bounty being inadequate."  "That in re. 'noxious and beneficial  insects' it would be a great help to  the ordinary individual if the Department would have specimens  mounted and labelled, and if they  would place cases in each postoflice  in the fruit growing districts.  "In regard to the name of the Institute: 'That the delegate shall go  into the question with the Superintendent, ancl if no objection is raised,  that the name of our Institute be.  The Northern Okanagan Farmers' Institute."  "That the delegate be requested to  take up the question of price of  stumping powder with the Department, ancl if possible to obtain relief of the president' and secretary  from  the bond  at present required."  "That, to improve the quality of  our dairy stock, there should be some  provision made whereby the Government could supply pure-bred bulls."  "That a system should be devised  which would give us better roads. It  is desirable to havc a uniform system of road building. Our roads at  present are a disgrace."  On all hands it was asked that the  Department would kindly make an  effort to get out the reports earlier.  At the conclusion of the business of  the meeting, Mr. Little read a paper  on  what he   had    learned at the  recent   apple   show,    and    on  apple  growing in general.   Mr. Little's long  experience in the district has given  him a very clear insight into the apple growing industry, and his paper  was very interesting, and contained  much food for thought. It was the  desire of the meeting that the paper  be published in the Enderby Press,  and this request will be complied  with as soon as the paper is received  at this office.
