The dove of peace is cootng on
Erin's far-famed isle, no longer war
is brewing, and murder's out of
style; Their hatred now they smother, tbey call each other "brutber"
and apeak to one another in accents free from guile.
They've scrapped their trusty
rifles and broke their swords in two,
no longer mob rule stifles or men
theis brothers hew; Eacb sweetheart
Irish Msry, each manchee, elf and
fairy, from Cork to Tipperary are
making Irish stew.
And Irishmen are working, as in
the days of yore, no wild spalpeens
are lurking to spill each other's
gore; At peace amongst their neighbors, they ply tbeir honest labors,
it'a better far "be japers," than feeling mean and sore.
For Irish eyea sre smiling through
tears of deadened pain, each fond
heart now beguiling a reign of love
again; Through square and honest
dealing, their future welfare sealing,
a Frge State Irish feeling our true
respect to gain.
The river Shannon's flowing, the
spuds are doing fine, tbe rose and
thistle growing the shamrock leaves
entwine; The world looks on in wonder, still seeking for the blunder
that's kept such friends asunder on
Britain's parent vine.
With sane and patient shrewdness Lloyd George and Coillns too,
have overlooked the rudness we've
beea accustomed to; Though foreign
interference gave things a bad appearance, witb tact and perseverance
they've brought the old ship

With the bees all snugly packed
away in their winter quartera and
requiring no further attention for
the next four or five months, the
beedeeper can now turn hia atten
tion to preparations for next season's
activities. Aa the active season ia
' omparatively short and.commences
with a rush, the man who would
make the best use of hia time and
secure a maximum crop from his
bees muat be prepared with everything in readineaa before it is actually needed. Moat of these prepara
tions can be made during the winter
For every colony of  bees a   beekeeper haa, he snould have at leaat
three full»depth£or six ahallow su-
pera for aurplua honey.   He should
alao have enough   10 frame h^ves
complete to take care of all the increase be is likely to make during
the  summer.   A lack of supplies
when honey is coming in and beea
are swarming means a heavy redaction in the amount of honey stored.
All supplies  abould  be gone over
carefully and put into proper working condition.   If any new ones are
required they  should  be   ordered
early, 88 moat dealers allow a   dia
count on early orders.   Theae aup-
pliea can be made up before spring.
When ordering hive bodies, supers,
etc., in large lots it is most economical to purchase them in  the flat in
cratea of five.   Tbe   material ia all
out to  atandard size and ready to
put   together.    If   a   beekeeper   is
bandy   with tools and can   obtain
good lumber it is very much cheap
er to make the   hives, floor boards,
etc.,   at  home,  using   a standard
hive as a model.   The frames, however, are difficult to  make  without
special machinery and should be obtained from a regular manufacturer.
Comb foundation   can   be ordered
early, but ilia not advisable to  put
it  into  frames before the spring.
Thia work abould be done in a warm
oom,   a9   the   war. U  very brittle
when   cold and ia  easily   broken.
Broken combs,  cappinga,  etc., can
be rendered early and tbe wax obtained manufactured into  foundation for spring use.   Any manufacturers of bee  supplies will convert
tbe wax into foundation at  a   reasonable charge.
All drawn comb sbould be carefully protected from tbe ravishes, of
mice and wax moth dnring the winter, as they are one ofthe moat valuable assets a beekeeper has. The
best method ie to place the comb in
supers  and   to tier the supers one

Britain Is Ready to Supply Them, Says fhe
Deputy Minister of Immigration
Ottawa. Dec. 12.—A movement
of settlers from the British Isles to
Canada, limited only by Canada's
ability to absorb them, is predicted
by W, J. Black, deputy minister of
tbe department of immigration who
haa just returned from six weeka
spent in the British Isles and Europe in connection with immigration matters. Mr. Black's investigations covered, besides principal
centers in Great Britain, such centers as Antwerp, Brussels, The
Hague and Warsaw.
"Tbe British people realize tbat
they face a problem of over-population," Mr. Black said tbis morning.
"The amount of over-population in
the British Isles is estimated at from
ten to fifteen milliom and tbe question of finding for these people a
means of livelihood and independence in other countries, preferably
within the British empire, is one
which is engaging the best British
attention. Canada cau be assured of
hearty and effective cooperation in
any policy which will help to meet
this situation and at the same time
ensure to the incoming settler possibilities of bettering  his condition."

Washington, Dec. 19.—The week
centering on December 28 will bring
very high temperatures to meridian
90, from the Texas gulf coast to the
far north, making a very great rise
in temperatures from December 20
to 28. Thepe great, rapid changes in
temperatures are bad for man, beast *
and winter grain, more particularly
bad for winter wheal, which is already in poor condition.
That temperature condition will
strike the Pacific slope near Dacem-
ber 26. Tbis will be one of tbe most
severe storms of the winter. All ita
weather features will go to great ex«
tremes.including a northern blizzard
and a southern norther. 1 can not
be too emphatic about that period
great of Btorms.
Last two weeks of Decemher pre-
cipituti in will be near the general
average, least moisture along tbe
southern coasts of America, increasing northward to northern agricultural parts uf Canada. These are
expected to be the general conditions
but will not apply to a fuw small
sections for which land elevations
and not depressions control moisture.

leras," he declares, "made the German people." Having made them, they did the best
they could to ruin them. The quality of Gen.
Ludendorffs Bourbonism may be gathered
from his remark that Germany failed in the
past to emphasize sufficiently that "might
makes right."
There is no place in the life of the successful
man for idle hours. When he works, he works;
when he plays, he plays. He does each in its
appointed time and with purpose. But he is
never found just waiting for "something to
turn up." It is necessary that healthy minds
have a certain amount of recreation, but when
playtime comes he seeks the kind of diversion
that appeals to him and pursues it just as assiduously as he does his work. Hours wisely
spent are an investment which will pay dividends during your whole life; hours spent in
idleness are a depreciation charge that must
be added to your overhead when striking a
balance in your Book of Life.
A good book is like unto a true friendship,
the more one puts into it the greater the return. Its measures are three: knowledge, enjoyment and inspiration. Open the mind to
the author and he adds to one's mental store;
open the heart and he gives one joy; lend him
the soul and he'll inspire one to noble deeds.
Good books are found on the shelves of good
men. A good book should not bo profaned by
cursory reading; the author should have the
same courteous attention that one wonld give
if he spoke. A book should be gauged not by
its literary style, nor the gold upon its cover,
but by the impress it leaves upon one's mind.
If it suggests higher thoughts or spurs one to
noble deeds it is a good book. Humorous
writings should be clean and wholesome; one
should laugh, not at others, but with them.
Good books are true friends; they will not lie,
cheat, wrong nor defraud; they will soothe
heartache, remove the sting from envy, shame
selfihness, and brighten life. Then are man's
greatest gift to man.
"One of these advertised opportunities in
oil stocks," avowed the Experienced Man,
"reminds me a good deal of a honey bee; it
takes consiberable experence to grasp it without being stung."
The impenitent Ludendorff has written a
bOok, War and Politics, in which he preaches
the doctrine that we are only at the beginning
of a succession of great wars, that Germany
must shape its policy with that fact in mind,
that it must not in the futnre permit internal
politics to hamper the general staff ofthe
army as it did in 1918. He envisages a new
Germany ruled by tho Hohenzollerns, in which
the function of thinking shall be discharged
entirely by the general staff'.   "The Hohenzol-
In other days visitors to the Holy Land had
to face all the discomforts and inconveniences
of travel under Ottoman rule, among which
was the unpleasant sea voyage to Beirut or
Jaffa. Now a trip to Egypt will inciude Palestine and Syria as a matter of course, for Je
rusalem is within twenty four hours of Cairo
by rail, and the hotel facilities are much improved. The visit to Palestine should come in
the spring when both climate and country are
at their best.
I was deeply touched, says H. H. Windsor
in Popular Mechanics, by a silent tribute observed recently while motoring through the
state of Connecticut. It was late at night and
the inhabitants of the little village had long
since retired; not a snggestion of life anywhere; the onlv sound the murmur of the mo-
* at
tor, when "my attention was arrested by the
brilliant.illnmination of one of the customary
"Rolls of Honor" erected throughout New
England to honor the men who fell in the
great conflict. The light was arranged to throw
its rays directly upon the names of the heroes
from that village. All through the long hours
ofthe night, until relieved by the light of the
rising sun, this illuminated tribute, as silent
as those it commemorates, sheds its warm,
friendly rays upon their honored names, keeping them ever bright in memory. It was a
simple thing, before which I reverently paused
a few moments, yet like so many simple things
it was beautiful. None of the names was
known to me, yet somehow they seemed not
far away. In rain and snow the light shines
nightly like a lighthouse, as if to guide the be
holder to the high ideals which prompted these
young men to give their all. Other cities and
towns may well follow the example of this
Connecticut hamlet, as an expressioi of never
dying gratitude from the older, and a patriotic
inspiration to the younger generation.

Good reports of Canada's success
in re-establishing her soldiers are
being spread far and wide, somewhat to the chagrin of other nations that have failed to make good
their promises to the men who
risk<xl their all in the cause of
world liberty.
Canada put over half a million
men into khaki out of a total population of less than eight million
people. With the return of the
troops to civil life at the close of
hostilities, the Canadian govern
ment faced the problem of rehabilitating more than 300,000 men.
The first step was to list each returning man and ascertain whether
he would be able to step into his
pre-war position. For those who
had no job In view and evinced no
desire to become farmers, assistance in obtaining work was given
through well co-ordinated government employment bureaus. Discharged men whose disabilities prevented a return to former occupa
turns-   were   given   thc   opportunity
ot re-tralning, free of charge, In
some trade or profession of their
own choice in which their disabilities would not prove a handicap.
But the greatest good was accomplished through the land settlement scheme.
Statistics to the end of October,
1921, show that 27,112 returned soldiers have hecn settled on the lnnd.
Of these, 6,103 wero settled on free
lands without loans, while 21,031)
with loans amounting to ? 6,50!,-
857. The total area occupied by
soldier settlers is 4,N.r.4,7'.)2. acres,
of which about one-half is free-
land. It Is estimated that the soldiers have broken over 000,000 acres
of new land. So far, 423 have repaid their loans in full.
The Canadian Pacific Railway, as
a large land owner in the western
provinces and desirous of doing
something in the matter of soldier
re-establishment instituted a scheme
for the community settlement of returned men as early as 1016. The

♦hey call to the members of tho
'Alpine Club of Canada who held
their annual camp thia season at
Lake O'Hara. The Camp, known as
the "O'Hara Meadows Camp" was
.an open Alpine Meadow at an altitude of 6,000 feet above sea level,
kfay with mountain blooms.

In 1909 the Alpine Club of Canada
opened its club house headquarters
at Banff and held- a special annual
cf.mp at Lake O'Hara. It was
l-tnique in that an invitation to attend this camp, as guests of the
Alpine Club of Canada, was sent to
tba president snd members of the
Alpine Club, England. A party of
20 accepted thc invitation. The
guests included mountaineers, well
known in many parts of the world.
It Is interesting bo note that in
1920, the Alpine Club of Canada
became affiliated with the "Alpine
Club" of England, the oldest and
,100*1 famous of all Alpine clubs.
The annual camp is for the pur-
ipose of enabling members of the
,club to meet together amid the great
wills of Canada, and to assist graduating members to qualify for active
membership. Those who have made
an ascent of at least 2,600 feet, are
eligible i for active membership.

At Lake O'Hara.
The objects of the club are the
motion of scientific study and exploration of Canadian Alpine rep-ions, the cultivation of art in relation to mountain scenery, the education of Canadians to an appreciation of their Canadian heritage, the
encouragement of mountain craft
and the opening of new regions as
national playgrounds. The preservation of tha natural beauties of the
mountain places and of the fauna
and flora in their habitat, is promoted.
The Clnb House of the Alpine Club
of Canada, opened in 1909, is situated on the slope of Sulphur Mountain,
300 feet above the town of Banff.
Spread in vast panorama, are the
deep river-threaded valleys of the
Bow and Spray and the forest clad
mountains beyond with their snowy
peaks glistening in the sun. From
the broad verandas of the Club
House, nature seemed one harmonious tune.
The Club House is replete with
interest. Bowls and baskets of
mountain flowers were in attractive
arrangement. The fine pictures of
Canadian mountains were worthy of
study as well as interesting photo,
graphs of well known mountaineers
of Europe and Canada. The group
of men and women who founded ths
Alpine Club of Canada, are pictured,
at their first meeting in Winnipeg
in 1906. Included are Professoi
Coleman of Toronto and Mrs. Parkei
of the Winnipeg "Free Press." There
is a picture of Sir James Outram,.
the first man to climb Mount Assiniboine, the Matterhorn of Canada,
and many others of interest.
The stone fireplace in the spacious living room was built in memory
of William S. Vaux, a*- sti'dent of
glaciers who died in 1998. The
drinking fountain in the hall was
given by the late Edward Whympcr,'
the hero of the Matterhorn—in its
basin, in a bed of moss, grows the
little yellow mountain rose.
A treasure of the Club House is
a worn copy of the 1917 Constitution
of tbe Alpine Club of Canada, framed, hanging on the walls of the
library. Under is the caption,
"Pound In a German dug-out when
the Canadians captured Vftny Ridge."
