However, it was  _������������������  a record crowd that gathered in  Mara to witness the presentation of  that delightful children's opera, "The  Pied Piper of Hamelin." And there  never was a better pleased audience  in Mara hall. The performance could  lot have been better produced by  professional  opera children. ���������������������������  Under the direction of, Major Feilden and the training o'f Miss Stewart  the children sustained their parts excellently and there was not a. hitch  from beginning to end. -  Bertha Gray, as Elsa, showed decided talent and sustained a long and  varied part .exceptionally well for so  small a girl.  James Bell, as Hans, Ella SHvon as  Gertrude, and Dorothy Davy as the  Major's daughter, each showed some  very good  acting. r  Mary Bruico, as the ' schoolmaeter,  played the role - well, while Manley  Patterson as the mayor of- Hamelin  looked  quite a seasoned  actor.  Major Feilden as the Pied Piper,  could not have been improved upon.  He is an artist in stage setting and  creates an** atmosphere most true to  the time and place in which the part  is cast.  The performance of the "rats" delighted the audience and these little  fellows had to respond- to a hearty  encore. ������������������ _ S'���������������������������' 7  Muriel McCready and Johm Buttery  worth showed - to\|>artJ.cular,-'a'dyantage,  iii'" the VBallet::d^^fcttJg^$&K' '^ySj.  in a very critical condition from sep-.  tic poisoning, has made a most remarkable recovery under the special  treatment there given, and is expected to return to his home next week.

As the  singers were suffering from colds  they did not appear at their best, but  there was novelty In "their performance and a haunting sweetness in  their music that was much* appreciated.  Mr. and Mrs. Jno. Folkard motored  to Lumby with Mr. and Mrs. Jas. Boll  and Mrs. Jas.

They had the game all  right, but didn't score. Enderby's  coming champions shot ten goals,  then took their visitors out for refreshments and sent them home satisfied if not happy.

It is safe to say that nothing like  so ambitious a performance has ever-  been ' attempted at Mara by school  children,  and  certainly no    perform  produced in the Enderby . Opera  House this (Thursday) evening, starting at. 8 o'clock.  The Mara performance was -a delight to all who saw and heard the  children, and when it was learned  that Major Feilden and Miss Stewart,  Miss Allen and the school children  would be pleased to repeat the performance at .Enderby as Mara's con-J  tribution to the Enderby Hospital  Fund for furnishing the new wards,  a few friends decided to bring the  Pied Piper to Enderby to give all���������������������������  and especially -the school children���������������������������  an opportunity to enjoy it. -As a re- -  suit of- the efforts of these friends  Enderby will have the opportunity to  .see the Mara school children in this  successful performance, . presented'  with all the special scenery and orchestra accompaniments.

Certainly an excellent evening's en-'  promptness  and  completeness  of  the tertatnment   was    provided,    and   all  several acts. &  . ,To Miss Allan, also, much credit is  due, for it was she who arranged the  dances, the cleverness of which added  so much to the success of the opera.  Mrs. George Butterworth;. accompanist, and Cyril Rosoman, violinist,  helped materially towards the very  successful=evening. ���������������������������  At the close a hearty vote of thanks  Wjis given to ~1I who had helped and  worked for the success of the performance, and especially to Major-  Feilden.  Many in the audience at the close  of the performance, personally co_.~  gratulated Miss Stewart and Major  Feilden, and urged them' to repeat it  at Enderby or some other valley town  and they would guarantee them a  crowded house. In fact, many expressed the thought that It would bo  a great pity If. after so much work  and skill, no further opportunity  should be given others to witness and  enjoy the  play.  We understand Major Feilden and  Miss Stewart and all children taking  part are willing to do so If arrangements can be made while the roads  are good for sleighing.  At the close the audience repeatedly called the performers, individually and in groups, to the stage and'  showered  them  with  applause.  After refreshments were served  dancing was enjoyed some hours.  taking part were to be congratulated  on the success of the affair.  Vopal selections were given by Mr.  Martin, Mr. Thos. Robinson, Mr. J.  A. Glenn, Mr. Gilders, Mrs. McNab,  and the Misses Kate'Broom and Winnifred Large, each of whom won the  hearty applause of the audience.

They were accompanied by an  enthusiastic bunch" of rooters, who  were prepared for a fast and furious  game. Thcy were not disappointed.  It proved all this���������������������������and morc. But in  the end the score' stood 4-5 against  Enderby. J  - Some say Enderby's failure to win  may be laid to the heavy if not brutal checking of Charlie Johnson by  Armstrong's heavy defense, who  hammered the boards with Johnson  most uninerqfifully.| Others declare  Enderby lost because of slow and less  effective passing and stick handling  than usual, and a weaker defense.  There may be other reasons. But  the fact remains, Enderby lost. And  in losing this game they dropped out  of the running for high place; while  the winning of the game put Armstrong on safe ground to top" the  League. V

Nothing is lo be gained if yyrc slop at knoyving

United Slates. For years thcy stopped al knowing lhc extent of their natural resources in the
"mailer of water-power, jusl as we are doing Loday in Canada. Then, a fcyv ycars ago there yvas a
change in policy inaugurated. A system of dams
yvas undertaken, the construction ol* which cosl
the federal government millions of dollars. But
hundreds of thousands of acres of. dry kind yvas
brought under cultivation and millions of hqrsc-
p'oyvcr yvas developed for hydro-elcclric and

federal government there undertook to develop

lhc people populating vast districts yvcre given
all the facilities for light and poyvcr and irrigation, and at a very'- low tax.

Any time of the year is time to  prepare for the breeding season. If  it is too late to, secure proper conditions for this season it is not too late  to  get  ready  for  next  year.  No matter for what purpose breeding is carried on, to get best results  it is necessary to know what is back  of each individual in the mating.  From a practical standpoint "the  hen that lays is the hen that pays,"  so it is from this standpoint that the  mating of. the pens will be considered.  First of all to know Uie individual  pedigree of each bird it is necessary  cither to use single ma tings or to  trapnest, and, you can bank on it, it  you are to do go_od, careful breeding  either one'of these methods jnust be  followed.  Tho single mating system served  its purpose; it was good but extravagant. By the use of trapnests a male  may be mated to a flock of females  and the same accurate results obtain-  ed as was the case where the individual mating was  used.  If trapnesting has, been practised,  a number of the most vigorous high  producing hens will have been reserved from last year's layers. If no trap  nest records are available by which  to select your breeders, dependence  will have to be placed upon selection  , from  external   characteristics.  Providing they arc in good, vigorous condition, the late moulters may  safely be retained as the best pro-"  slucers.  These yearlings  should  make most  valuable   breeders.        Do   not   try   to  .  force them, let them come in to lay-  injg   natually   and   they   should   be   in  'the   best   possible   breeding   condition  at the proper time.  Early,   well   developed   pullets   may  also   be   used   to   advantage.     Again  the trap nest records should  be used  as a basis for selection. ''If it is not  . possible  to  trap  the  year  round,  try  to  trap-for "the winter moutiis.���������������������������ii������������������ing  "those records" as_,a basis for selection.  Tf trap nesting is out of the question,  select,, those--pullets   that- have   been  _ laying heavily, up to the time of mating.    This can readily be told by the  fading of-'the shanks'.  To these females that have been,  selected should - be mated, either,  cocks that have been tried out., and  whose   daughters   havc   been   .heavy  If you have not been doing careful  individual  breeding,  it  will  be  advis-  tafcion: .
