A Child, Playing a Pencil,  Meets With a Painful  Mishap  A. peculiar accident happened to  the three year-old son of Mr. and  Mrs. Lam, who live in the'Ruckle  addition, on Tuesday last. The  little fellow was sitting on, a chair,,  holding a lead pencil in his mouth,  when he fell to the floor,-face downwards. Eyeu though the unsharp-.  ehed' end of the pencil was in his  mouth, the force of. the fall .when-  bis head struck the floor was sufficient to nearly force it through to  the back'of his neck, producing a  painful and dangerous wound. Dr.  Truax, who was summoned as  hastily as possible, extracted the  pencil and dressed the wound. The  patient is now doing nicely.

It is understood the Da1  vis hall will be.-used for the occasion. -The bagpipes, the haggis and  heather, -together with Highland  flings, hornpipes and sword dances,  songs, speeches and recitations will  form part of the elaborate program.  The banquet tables will be spread  in tumptuous.style with all that is  "ecessary to feed and cheer the  company who will gather that evening to homor the memory .of Scotland's bard. As all the arrangements are not yet completed, fuller  particulars- of this affair will be  given in our next issue.      ���������   -  Government's    Dilly - Dally  Policy Tesponsible for  All the Trouble  Dr. C. M. Kingston and N. Larsen attended the sitting of the  county court in Princeton this week.  They returned home today.  Four new Ford automobiles ar-  rivedj|in the city this week for the  Grand Forks Garage company.  Clark Bros, are having the shelving put in in their new store on  Bridge street. They expect to move  from their present location in throe  or four weeks.  II.   Campbell   reports   that    his  toek-taking sale is ^surpassing   ex-  Begih the Year Well  The pleasure of every member of  the family during 1914 can be considerably increased by reading each  week .that greatest of all weekly  papers, The Family Herald and  Weekly Star of Montreal. It has  pages for everyone, old and young.  It is really surprising what wonderful value one gets each week in  that paper. One dollar is a small  slim indeed for such a vast amount  of good clean wholesome reading  during the year. No mistake can  made in sending one dollar to The  Family Herald Office, Montreal, for  a year's subscription. It will be the  best New Year'b gift to  the family.  It's Greatly to His Credit  An editor who started about  twenty years ago with only fifty  five cents is now worth $100,000.  His accumulation of wealth is owing  to his frugality, good habits, strict  attention to business, and' the fact  that an uncle died and left him  $99,999.  The announcement is made by the  Conservative press that at iast the  attorney-general is about to take  steps to compel the Doukhobors,  who are settled in southern British  Columbia, to conform to the laws  of the" province, which heretofore  they have persistently treated with  contempt. Mr. Bowser should have  acted long ago in this matter. He  knew that, as one of his party newspapers puts it, under Peter Veregin  the Doukhobors have set up an independent state, disregarding all  laws and regulations which do not  suit them; that they pay no heed to  sanitary regulations; that they reject the education laws; that they  refuse to register births, marriages  and deaths; lhat they make it impossible to hold an inquest after a  fatal accident; that they pay no attention to laws concerning contagious disease's among people or  animals, and that they will not testify in the courts or pay any respect  to judicial decisions.  And knowing all this, Mr. Bowser calmly ignored the complaints  alike of the independent Doukhobors, who have shaken off Veregin's  yoke, and of the English residents  of tbe district. The News-Advertiser calls this patience. Most people, we believe, would call it neglect  of duty. Even now it is questionable whether the plan which the  attorney-general has decided to  adopt will meet the situation satisfactorily. As individually . the  Doukhobors have  no property,   he  proposes to levy on the property of  the community to satisfy penalties  on members of the community. He  evidently has no intention of taking criminal proceedings against individual who set the laws at defiance, taking the ground that as they  obey.their ruleas they are not personally responsible.  But out of the profundity of his  legal, knowledge and experince can  not Mr. Bowser devise some method  to hold these leaders responsible for  i,he infractions of the laws of which  the ordinary members of th'; colony  may be guilty?  Surely aiding and abetting in the  commission of an offense is an offense itself, and in ttie case of the  Doukhobors, who are entirely under  the control and within the power of  their leaders, stronger terms than  mere "aiding and abetting" should  be employed. How would Mr.  Bowser deal with an English community which under the direction  of their leaders set at defiance the  !a\v:,-of the province, and by their  disregard of all the laws of sanitation menaced the health of the people living around them? We hardly think that he would give them  the benefit of personal irresponsibility, or levy fines of offenses, for  which other people would have to  serve prison sentences. The whole  Doukhobor trouble is- traceable to  the dilly-dally policy that the government has pursued with regard, to  them from from the- beginning. In  the Boundary country it is a matter  of common remark that Veregin  and his lieutenants maintain }heir  defiant attitude because they have  reason to believe that the government is with them, or, at least, that  it will not take any strong stand  against them. We shall be greatly  surprised if Mr. Bowser's present  announcement does not confirm  them in that belief. What else, indeed, can they think when the department charged with the enforcement of the laws treats them "like a  favored people and exempts them  from the penalties which other citizens have to suffer for similar offenses?���������Vancouver Sun.  If  Gaieway Lodge Officers for  the  Ensuing Year,  Banquet.  At the weekly meeting of Gateway Lodge No. 45, I.O.O.F., last  night, D.D.G. M.

C. Brewster, John  Oliver and M. A. Mucdonald, it was  decided to make a rour of the province, holding meetings at ���������such  places as there will be lime for before the party convention, to be  held in Victoria February 25    next.  Messrs, Macdonald and Brewster  will speak at Ashcraft on the 19th  of January, and with them will be  John P. McConnell, the candidate  in Yale. The itinerary will continue to Kamloops on the' 20th;  Vernon, January 21; Revelstoke,  January 22; Nelson, January 24;  Cranbaook, January 26. From there  Mr. Macdonald goes east on legal  business, but Mr. Brewster will be  joined from there on by John Oliver  They will then proceed to Fernie, to  hold a meeting on January 27; to  Creston, January 2S; Kaslo, January 30; Phoenix," February 2 (with  possjbly Greenwood on the same  date); Grand Forks, February 3;  Rossland, February 7, and Merritt,  February 9. Mr. McConnell will rejoin them at that point.  Afterward tbe leaders will go  north to Prince Rupert, Bella Coola  and other points.  The lower mainland will be covered .after the convention. The  foregoing schedule is, of course, subject to the usual delays incident to  cravel, but those are the dates which  have been decided upon.  Trains are again running six days  a week between Oroville and Princeton.  Sir Wilfrid's Message  Sir Wilfrid Laurier was the principal guest of honor at the rpcent annual "Lit" dinner of the Univeisity  of Toronto and made the occasion  memorable with an insdiring message  to the large gathering of students,  who cheered him to the echo. Bur.  that message really was not confined  to those who attended the dinner.  It was an appeal to Young Canada as  a whole from a great man who hud  grown old in the service of his country, who understood her problems and  never lost confidence in the ability of  her people to grapple with them.  Here is the message:  "My young friends, go out into the  world to service. Make the highest  thought of civilization your inspiration. Problems there are, big problems. Tomorrow, the day after tomorrow, it will be your turn to grapple with them. Serve God and your  country. Be firm in the right as God  gives you to see right. You may not  always succeed. Progress is often  punctuated hy reverses. You may  meet reverses, but the following day  stand up again and renew the conflict,  for trnth and justice shall triumph in  the end."���������Victoria Times.

On-'the-sarae  terms  we can  have better churches,  where Uio people follow the, same line  of business, have'much the'same outlook on life tne same wants aud desires.      We can have this social life,  with vastly less danger of moral corruption; saner social life as well, with  a broader viewpoint than anything the  city can furnish.  This sane and soul .satisfying social  ,   Hfo cannot be imposed on the country  Jrom tlie city, nor even from the country  town.

Of course .the first  one is the real birthday, and the other  two are 'those whose names tho Swedish boy or girl   ?.ars.     For every day  in the year of the Swedish calendar  has its own separate name, beside'the  weekly names which    other    nations  have.     Sometimes if the parent gives  the child a second name or a first one  that- cannot be found in the calendar,  tho child loses out on  ono birthday.  And considerable protest must follow,  too,    when   the   child   becomes   old  enough to realize what he is. missing.  In   tho- German   calendar   every   day  ,has ar'uame also, but the observance  of these days is not at all common in  the latter coiuitrv.

France's Foreign Legion  The French "'ore ������legion, which  is always tho cause of so much bad  blood in Germany, is the only regiment of its kind in existence. It dates  from 1831, when Franco undertook the  conquest of Algeria. It consists of  two regiments, each four battalions  strong, drawn from all tiro adventurers of Europe. It ia popular not only  because no questions are asked, but  because promotion is open to all, within limits, and a certain number of tho  officers have risen from the ranks.  All classes are to he found among its  members and all natioualties, but the  many Germans do not describe themselves as such���������they are all .Alsatians. Tho reason for its continued  existence is that France cannot spare  its men nor send enough who would  leave the comforts of civilazation for  the wastes of Africa or V:. 2 swamps  oi' Tonkin.

Origin of the Dram;;  Tho drama, in the only souse in  which it is worth talking about, had  its origin in Greece immediately following the clef oat of Darius and Xer-  ::cs, about B.C. 'KiO. Its birthplace  was Athens, and'its fathers were Aeschylus and Aristophanes���������Aeschylus  of tragedy and Aristophanes of comedy. When the Greek unci Roman  civilization went into eclipse under  the black cloud of northern barbarian-  ism the theatre, as with nca.-ly everything pise, becan.c^oxtiuet, Lul during  the middle ages acting was in a measure resumed in the form of the Moralities, or moral plays of tho ecclesiastics, and it was from "such nlavs  that l.i'c mod:r.i drama was slowly  evolved.

A distinguished' Canadian, who  was made n K.C.M.U. when the  King's honors were distributed recently, is Sir Frederic Eustache  Barker, chief justice of New Brunswick.  Seventy-five 3*ear3 ago Sir Frederic  was born in Sheffield, N.B., and all  his life has lived and worked in his  SIRFKEDEMC EUSTACHE EAnKnE.  native province though his example  and influence have been felt all oveT  Canada.'  He was called to the bar in 1861,  after graduating from the Provincial  University and rapidly rose through  ability to important positions in the  legal "profession. From 1885 to 1S87  ho represented St. John, N.B., in  the House of Commons. In 1893 he  was made puisne judge of  the  Su-  Jireme Court of New Brunswick and  n 1908 became chief justice of that  province. He is a senator and ex-  sraincr in law of the New Brunswick  University.  Went   Right  To   tt.  James Franco. Dwyer, the Austra.  Han novelist, tells the following story  about the Japanese. Dwyer began as  a reporter in Melbourne.  "Japan sent a warship on invitation  {o Australia," said he. "We were tr  ixnveil a monument in a park in thp  Interior of Melbourne. The Japanesp  Bailors were to grace the occasion."  ��������� Not one of the Japanese had ever  keen on shore there before. When the  morning of the unveiling came Melbourne sent a mounted escort to show  -the-visitors.the way to the park. The  eBcort wasn't^needed. At the head of  the brown column marched an officer,  with his nose on a map, pinned to a  bit of board.  ��������� "He never: looked up," 6aid Dwyer.  "Now and then he*d give an order iri  Japanese, " and the column would  wheel to the left or right. Kind friend?  would wave then*, hands at the mount  ���������id escort, marching 'proudly on the  wrong street, and tell them they ha-  lost the city's-guests."  Two or three times that performance  wag repeated;   Then the -mounted es  cort gave it up in disgust. The Japanese went to the park in the interior of  the city straight as pigeon flies to a  hole in the barn.   Afterwards Dwyer  and   other   reporters   measured   the  route and discovered that the Japan-  cse. guided only by their war map,,  had taken the shortest route to their,  destination through a strange city.  The Lady's Choice.  Dr. Maenamara, -who started; lifers  a schoolmaster,' has amusing election  experiences to. relate. ^.On one occasion, when he was in the middle of a  speech, an old lady .excitedly asked,.  "Are you in favor of the repeal of the  Blasphemy Laws?"  "Madam," was the ready reply.   "I  ������m a golfer."  Another amusing experience fell to  hij lot when he was due to address a  meeting at a large board school. Ho  arrived somewhat late, and was forced  to make his vray through the crowded  hall. He found Iris passage barred by  a pretty young, lady leaning on the  arm-of an admirer, nnd was. forced to  overhear the following conversation:  -..'What's'on here to-night, George?"  'Oh,- some spoeckifying, I believe."  "Who is speaking?"  "]Jr, Maenamara."  "Let's go back to one of the dark  class-moms, George."  CHIEF   JUSTICE    BARKER    ROSE  RAPIDLY TO HIS POSITION.

The of ect sought is to  make a reduced air pressure above tbo  aeroplane wings or planes, and consequently to increas > their lifting power. The front of th > wing is so curved that, the wind sh >ols up above tho  plane instead of slid ng along its top.  . It is the idea of one of the groat  number of foreign scientists who are  now studying wing shapes. - His laboratory tests and a 'imited number of  practical tests hat ������ convinced him  that a very cousid -rable increase of  lifting'power can ho gained in this  way.

Tho efficiency of t e gasoline engine  has enabled t :n to overcome tho inefficiency of aerop ano shapes and  wings, but tho pror.iiling tendency in  flying now is to giv< ��������� loss attention to  .increasing the powe* and more alten-  'tion to shaping tho vings so they will  lift as much as thi v should, and so  lhat they will giv ��������� hotter stability  when trying through the air.���������Saturday  Evening Post.

CAPITALIZING CHARACTER.  Italian Laborers Hnds Strikes by Becoming Their Own Employers.  Wherever ono travels through the  north of Italy he sees large or small  groups, of workinfemen, skilled or  unskilled, with no padrone to drivo  them, making roads, carting the  gravel for railways for the Government, erecting big apartment houses  for the working people to live in,  extending their operations to every  soi-t of trade by organizing themselves into co-operative so������ieties to  undertake big contracts. Binding  themselves together to work for  themselves and for one another, paying their own wages, carrying the responsibility of properly fulfilling  their contract,'and depositing a fund  to guarantee its completion, they  eliminate the intervening contractors  -entirely, saving the middleman's  profit to divide among themselves in  proportion to the amount of work  which each man has contributed and  to the existir- wage scale for his  trade. Having now become their  own employers they have in thoir  own work eliminated the strike.  The labor co-operative society is  the latest and farthest advance of  collectivism to-day, and some forms  of it In Italy aio unique. Ask these  laborers about their work, how they  are holding together, how they  secured the contract and,the necessary guarantee to obtain it, how  they have been able to purchase all  the machinery required to carry it  out. and they will tell you that there  is a co-operative bank in tho neighboring city to which they belong,  with which their contract is deposited, and ��������� which advances them from  month to month the necessary funds  for equipment, npplies and wages.  Eased on assets which had previously^ been of negligible value to  the laborer in the securing of credit  ���������namely, character, thrift, the ambition of every man to got on, his  normal, impulse to produce the greatest 'within him, mere numbers which,  -joined together with their small  mites of money, are no more to be  despised than a Rothschild singly���������.  there have -arisen", in Italy a host of  Banks of the People���������Bancho Popo-  Jari���������a veritable army of co-operative savings and loan societies which  have given to individual members a  credit service previously inaccessible  if not impossible, and which now are  extending their operations to reliable  co-operative groups of workmen.

One hot afternoon, when he 'was out riding, accompanied by an attendant, lie  came, it is said, upon a butcher who  was trying to repair the broken-axle'  of his.cart. The king at once offered his assistance, and for ^ver an  hour the three inen���������king, butcher,  and attendant���������worked in' silence  beneath the blazing sun.  When they had finished the butcher stared strlidly at the king for a  moment. Then his face lighted up  as he thought that he saw the explanation of the kindness.  "Oh," he said, "you also are a  butcher?"  "No," replied the king regretfully,  "I only look like one!"  Turning a Tight Screw.  Any one who has attempted to remove a very tight screw knows what  a very, difficult business it is. After  'straining and twisting for a considerable time the operators frequently  ends by losing his temper' and destroying the bite of the screw, which  remains fixed as tightly as ever. With  the aid of a pair of pinchers, however the affair is quite a simple one.  Place the screwdriyer in position and  then catch hold of the blade with  the pinchers just above the head of  the crew. Press the screwdriver firmly and at the same time twist round  the blade with the pinchers. The  tightest screw will yield immediately  to this sort of persuasion.

Eve is blindfolded nnd  then the circle goes around a few  times very quietly until Eve teiis  them to stop. Eve then points iu some  direction and the person who is pointed to must go into the circle with Kvo  and is called Adam. Eve then calls  Adam nnd Adam must answer'mid say  Kve. By this Eve is supposed to locale  him, but when Eve comes toward the  place where Adnm answered he must  run to the other side of the circle or  any .place within it and always try to  stay out of Eve's reach, nnd as sho is  blindfolded she cannot tell whi-ro  Adam is only by his voice. It is the  most fun when Eve calls very fast, as  Adam will have to answer fust and  then she can locate him bolter. When  Eve has caught Adam she must gin-s<  who it Is. If she guesses right Evu  joins tho circle and Adam must lie  Eve.
