Somebody has said that when (i'.o  world was being made the Creator  i gathered up all the waste material Iip  had left over and made Labrador out  of it. Some people say the Creator  never intended it to bo inhabited Bv.t  inhabited it is with a sturdy, taciturn  band" of Eskimos, who, thanks to 1 In-  Moravian missionaries who have penetrated to that country, celebrate  Christmas in their own peculiar way.  As service timo in the church draws*-  near all the inhabitants, old ami  young, the men on one side and l.lift \ strongest appeal to one's appreciation.  Simple Little Embellishments Such as  Ribbons, Seals and Holly Count  for Much.  At no time does the manner of doing; a thing count for so much as at  the time of Christmas giving; and  while in a few instances thero are  tJ-sSse who overdo the outward embellishment of gifts, none of us now like  to offer the simplest little remembrance unless wrapped in spotless paper, tied with gay ribbons and adorned  with bright seals expressing merry  greetings.  And this is as it should be for the  holiday season gains a great deal ot  cheeriness and zest. from the multiplicity . of beribboned white parcels  whisking to and fro, and we do not regret the passing of the yellow paper  bundle of our grandmother's day.  But the attractive appearance of the  gift is not all that counts; we must be  careful of the how and when and  where of presenting it.  The time that custom more and  more sets apart for the exchanging of  gifts among friends is Christmas eve.  any time from dusk to midnight; but  Christmas day itself is sacred to presenting gifts within the family circle.  Some families put -all the gifts in  tho library or living room, in separate  piies, and then, after a deliberate  breakfast, they all walk in and open  the packages in the presence of each  other.  Never give a gift in person it you  can contrive to send it or put it where  it will be found-awaiting the recipient  when he or she is alone, for when received in this way the gift makes its  1 I "HOU shall love the giver of the gift, because  ���������*���������   he has sent the gift.  2.

[ One of tho cleverest ways is to take  i a tiny Japanese umbrella, place tho  money in a paper bag and, after rolling and tying the bag around the upper p:.rt of the handle underneath,  close the umbrella over it and tie with  narrow ribbon.  Another good way is( to present an  attractive little booklet with a check  or a greenback for a bookmark, writing on the flyleaf, "note page 14."

Children are not allowed, unaccompanied by guanh'ans, in most large  shops, but such was hor air of responsibility, of decorum, that it would  have been a bold floorwalker who  dared to question her. ....,.,.  Nor, evidently, was it her first visit.  The boy, still held in leash, ran in  front and made straight for the space  devoted to Santa Claus, his reindeer  aud his sleigh, piled with toys.  There was a background of fir and  cedar and a huge Christmas tree, but  the pair sat down before the fascinating old fellow in his red robe, his  long white beard, holding his big  whip, and from his face the small boy  did not turn from worshiping in solemn adoration.  Across the room was a creche; also  a wonderful and beautiful thing. Tlie  infant Jesus in tho manger, the mother in her blue robes, St. Joseph, with  his staff, the three kings resplendent.  The children had been perfectly  still for fifteen minutes looking at  Santa Claus, when the little girl whispered to the boy. He squirmed, struggled, but she was too much for him.  Sho dislodged him from his seat,  dragged him to the-creche, and with  motherly, Irish piety," pressed him on  his knees.  Reverently she described the holy  group, then would incite devotion  from a more human motive.  "See the cow, Denny; you mind the  cow we used to milk last summer at  the farm when wu went on the fresh  air? See the goat, Denny; you mind  the goat in our alley? It's his pitcher."'

Certificate of Improvements 510.00  (Where more than ono claim appear-*  in notice, $2..j0 for each additional  claim.)  A. B. S. STANLEY. Editor  For Christmas Holidays  <���������*  Sir Richard McBride  . Although discussed and contemplated for months past, the  resignation of Sir Richard McBride as" premier of this Province, seems to have hit Mr.  Brewster as a surprise.  At least that is the impression  one would get from reading his  comments on the long contemplated change. His particular  brand of politics, which finds it-  necessary, in the interest of  what he conceives to be right  and truth, to cast aspersions on  the character of a man of the  stamp of the retiring premier,  must be of a very contorted and  dubious character.  One fact, remains, - namely  that there are some pretty  staunch Grits intli:.-' province,  who while desirous of changing  places with the party now in  power, at least are honest enough to recognize the splendid  record of the man, who as premier, for.years has been the aim  of all the hatred and jealousy of  their less honest and highly  disgruntled brethren.    For  these honest Grits we make an  appeal that the man Brewster  does not -represent- them. ������������������ or  their sentiments and is but an  . .. ' - *���������>*���������  individual,.'or at.most the leader of the few who would not  only sell their souls for power,  but would go to any length or  sink .to any depth to besmirch  the characters of the real men,  the leaders of the people, the  men who have pulled this province out of the slough of financial and political despond, and  made,her what she is today, the  Star of the West.  Deeds speak louder than  words, and Sir Richard will go  from one honor to another,  with the praise and the approval of his fellow countrymen,  the majority of whom are too  honest aud too wise to be  caught with the bait held out  by the malevolent Brewster.

That there is considerable talent in the schools is apparent  and that we are fortunate in having  the kind of teaching staff that knows  how to make the most of that talent is  also a noticeable fact.

There is a story from Italy which  some suppose to be the beginning of  the present idea of the Christmas  stoe'.-'ir.g. Years ago good old St.  Nicholas of Padua used to throw  kmtted purses with money in them in  at the windows of the poor. These  knitted purses were not unlike a  stocking without a foot, and later it  became the custom of the people to  hang this knitted sack just inside the  window that St. Nicholas might put  something in as he passed. "When  these purses went out of use the  stockings were substituted. In the  northern part of Italy it was a littlo  too cnllly to leave the windows open  and r*a<? stockings were hung by the  mantel place so that they might be'  flllea irom the chimney. j  Phone 12.

" Of course  people have proverbially   short  memories, and   quickly   forget  the   excellent   programmes   of  years gone by, but from   every  point of view Friday's entertainment-was   a    signal    success.

Mr. Burr accompanied by a  few of his Hedley friends motored down on Saturday to attend the Turkey shoot held  here.  Quant explianed tlie new plan  of a "Giving" rather than a  ���������'Getting" Christmas. Then  without delay the entertainment began. Choruses, recitations, dialogues followed each  other, until at half past nine  with the singing of "O Canada,"  Santa Claus appeared.  After Santa had shaken hands  with many of his little friends  he told of some poor children  who feared that they would be  overlooked  by  him  this year.

Christmas  dinners," shouted one small boy  in the front seat. At this mo-  ment Mr. Albert Mattice came  forward bearing, aloft a bag  containing the money received-  at the door. Then the boys  and girls crowded forwarded,  forgetting how beautifully they  had planned to march, so eager  were they to put their offering"  in Santa's basket. To show his  pleasure Santa gave each child'  a box of candy.  From the programme,   it   is  difficult to   pick   out   numbers  for   special  praise.    The   audience was    especially   delighted  with  the motion    song,    "The  Groo Groo Man."   Jack Thomfis  and Hubert Fr-ith covered themselves with glory in their humorous and racey ^dialogue.    The  "Star" exercise put  on  by  the  young ladies was picturesque,  while the duet sung during  the  tableau combined to  make the  number   altogether   satisfying.  No   one   present   would    have  cared to miss seeing and hearing  Master  Kenneth Kyle,     while  Teddy        Fargo's      recitation,  "When the Minister   comes   to  Tea" -was greeted  with   rounds  of   applause.    The   Scouts     in.  their   sketch,    "The   Monkeys*  Surprise," scored many a well-  deserved    laugh.    Both   Willie  Thomson and Jim Clarke handled   their   amusing   roles in   a  manner -worthy   of the highest'  praise.  The thanks of the community  are due the young people and  the committee for presenting  such an entertaining performance. Special thanks should  be tendered Miss Ramsey, who  in spite of her busy days at  school found , time to attend rehearsals and prepare numbers  without which the programme  would have been infinitely less  attractive. On Saturday $43.23  were dispatched to the Salva-  ti on A rmy a t Van co uver to provide Christmas Dinners for  poor children.
