on  Saturday   afternoon.      They
went to a lot of trouble this year
to make the event one long to be
remembered by the children.    Tbe
large tree looked very pretty with
numerous small electric lights in
all shades and colors,  hanging on
tbe branches.    It was the delight
of the children some-of whom appeared dnmfounded at the gorgeous
spectacle     the     tree    presented
with    its      array    of   beautiful
presents and brilliant colored lights.
Excitement ran high as  the telegrams from Santa Claus were read,
the children eageriy and expectantly looking   for   hie   arrival while
others awaited anxiously- in half a
tremble and a suppressed anticipation.   The expression on the children's faces showed all kinds of excitement and when Santa finally
appeared on the scene the pandemonium of joy reached its zenith.
All sat down to a dainty supper to
which, young and old did full justice ttstyfying go the good cooking
of the Pythian Sisters.   After Bup-
per the gifts were presented every
child receiving  something.     The
singing of the National Anthem
brought this   delightful afternoon

Sunday School Xmas Trek
(Written for The Ledge.)
The Xmas Tree and Entertainment given   in   the   Presbyterian
Church last Thursday   night was
thoroughly   enjoyed   by   air who
were fortunate to be present and
particularly   the children���all   of
whom- received   a   gift   from the
Xmas tree which was well laden
with, lovely   presents.    The   programme given  by the scholars of
the  Sunday   School   had   a  real
Xmas spirit in it and brought fond
memories   back to  the   audience.
The programme was  opened with
a hymn by the scholars following
which was a  Bibie   reading.     A
recitation by S.   Eustis "The Innkeeper" and then a chorus "Merry
Merry,    Christmas."     Jas.  Kerr
who was the chairman  read a telegram   from   Santa   CJauB   .which
caused much excitement among the  <
smaller   children.     A   recitation,
"The .Shepherd"   by  Jess Puddy, -'
Ed.   Johnson,   Johnny  Kerr   arid"
Allan   Fraser    was   then    given.
After  the   "Christmas  Welcome"
was sung  by the pupils  another
recitation    entitled    "The .Three:,.
Wise Men" was renderod by Robt.   ���
Mowat, Wm.   Puddy and George -',
Morrison.    This part of the programme  closed   with  a   beautiful
sketch with Mary Kerr as "Queen"
of the Fairies."    Santa Claus then
arrived and distributed the pres- =
ents.    D. R. McEImon very kind-'
ly and generously donated  beautiful rings for every child and which *
were very much appreciated.

The New Year
Happy New Year I With each recurring- new year this seasonable greeting: and wish is extended by millions of people to each
other. In some cases, no doubt, it is done as a mere matter of
form, but probably the vast majority of people do sincerely hope
that the incoming* year may bring- a larger measure of happiness
and a greater prosperity to thcir friends and neighbors, their country and the world.
The extending" of this old-time wish, "Happy New Year," if
it is a sincere wish, implies much more than the utterance of thc
words. It imposes an obligation. If we sincerely wish that thc
new year may bc a happy one, it is our duty to put forth thc best
that is in us to assist in bringing about a realization of our desire.
And if all our New Year greetings and hearty handclasps arc accompanied with a resolve to interpret them in defiiritc actions
throughout the year there is not the slightest question but that thc
new year now dawning will be a most happy one.
There is every reason why 1922 should far surpass 1921 in happiness and prosperity for all. It is inconceivable, for instance, that
these Western Canadian Provinces should experience a repetition of
the disasters which overtook thc agricultural producers this year.
Several years of poor crops in various sections of the country culminated this year in a crop, satisfactory on the whole so far as quantity of grain was concerned, but which, in the aggregate, did not
yield to the producers the costs of production. Large in volume
as thc crop proved to be, it was a debt-producing crop rather than
a debt-paying crop. Such a condition is not likely ^to be repeated
-" 1922.

Industrial conditions were far from favorable during" the year
now closing, with the result that,, not in Canada alone, but to an
even greater extent in other countries, there was unemployment.
The concensus of opinion now seems to be that the worst in this
respect is past and that the new year will show. a-steady improvement. ��� -.
While taxation must for some years continue to be heavy in
order to pay the war bills of the nations, the cost of living is steadily falling*, so that the wage earner and the heads of families can
look forward to a larger measure of relief on this score.
A survey of world conditions is also hopeful. The dark cloud
which has been hanging over our Empire in connection with Ireland, and which threatened to break in a terrible storm of civil war,
seems about to be dissipated. After long centuries of turmoil,
ag'tation and strife, the Irish question appears.to be on the eve
of an amicable settlement.
The much heralded Washington conference of the nations on
the limitation of naval armaments has been a wonderful, almost a
miraculous success. The nations have found a basis of agreement
to end the costly and dangerous race for naval supremacy. The
probability of future wars is thus greatly lessened, and along with
the removal of that threat, which was paralyzing the financial, industrial, commercial and political world, confidence is returning and
with it renewed business activity is certain. The reduction in thc
burden of taxation will likewise be considerable and will become
more and more apparent as time passes. . '���
All these circumstances give assurance that it is no idle wish
to extend the greeting "Happy New Year." What the world has
long lacked is confidence. Let confidence .be restored, and economic conditions will soon right themselves. It should, however, be
borne in mind that each individual citizen can exert a powerful
.influence in the right direction. Never more than now was there
a" lime when the dead past should be allowed to bury its dead.
Rather, like St. Paul, the Canadian people should forget those things
which are behind and press toward those things which are before.
Pessimistic feelings should be curbed. Blue ruin talk rigidly
avoided. Expressions of confidence and words of hopefulness and
encouKigcment should flow from every mouth, and' our actions,
shouId\��e in keeping with our words. If a person finds himself
or herself indulging in pessimistic feelings and .the language of discouragement and despair, they should stop short. Such an attitude neither benefits themselves nor anybody else. It is a positive
detriment to progress, destroys confidence, and is a constant source
of unhappiness. ��� ;   -
Bcgin-the new year right by cultivating a cheerful and hopeful
disposition.- It will make for happiness, your own and others. It
is the basic foundation for a. "Happy New Year."
and ^these   lists   may bo had on application to the Superintendent, Natural  Resources Intelligence Branch
Department of the Interior, Ottawa.

suffer agony every minute.

A Whistling Mouse
Only One Known That Can Mimic
Birds       ���   - "   "
The town of Ocie in Ozark County,
Mo./makes a bid for fame with a
whistling mouse, the first of its kind.
Whether this mouse has been imbibing too freely of Ozark "corn lick-
er," or whether it thinks it is a mocking bird, is not clear. \
It was discovered in the home of W.
H. Hampton, a merchant at Ocie, and
apparently had wandered in from
the woods for the winter.
The mouse can% mimic a- quail,
mocking bird or--any other bird, according to the Rev. Walter E. Fish,
missionary for the American Sunday
School Union of Springfield, who.
vouches for the authenticity of the
story. " It keeps up a continuous
whistle and chatter all day and night,
ceasing only when it hears strange
voices in 'the building. Fortunately,
the Hamptons are not superstitious,
and attach no significance to ��� the
mouse's performance.

Counting sheep is an art, writes
Will H. Ogilvie in the Daily Mail,
There are many shepherds in Great
Britain skilful" and accurate in this
branch of their work, but in Australia one finds the supreme artist, the
unapproachable-expert.    ���    --"
When a station manager or overseer has a large mob of sheep to
count he rounds them up at a gate
leading from one paddock to another.
These gates are double, opening from
a block in the centre.
He opens the two gates about three
feet and lays a sapling or stick of
some kind across the tops, lashing it
in place with saddle straps or wire,
preventing, the gates , from opening
farther whatever the pressure from
behind, and leaving an aperture of, a
couple of feet for the sheep to run
through. .   "X     . .:,.. 7 \        '   .   V-

IV.   Jeroboam's   Substitute   Religion
(vv. 25-33).
1. He established calf-worship (w.
25-33). (1) His pretext for (w. 26,
27). He feared'lest the religious unity should heal the political separation. His plea was that the people
would go back to Jerusalem to worship, and therefore would gradually be
led to acknowledge allegiance to Re-
hobaom, and his own life would be
taken. This act "of his had its root
in his heart of unbelief. God had
promised through the Prophet Ahijah
to build him a sure house, even as he
had built for David (I. Kings .11:38).
Had he believed God, this fear would
have been dispelled, o Jeroboam only
used religion to secure personal ends.
He was too shrewd a politician to do
away with religion. He knew' that
religion was a powerful factor in
man's life. (2) The calves set up
(vv. 28-30). JVVhen Jeroboam set up
these idols he said: "It' is too much
for you to go up to Jerusalem; behold
thy gods, O7 Israel, which _ brought
thee up out^tf Egypt." His religion
was the religion of convenience.
2. His scheme of worship (w; 31-
33). (1) He built houses of high
place8_(v. 31). This.was against the
direct command of God. (2) He
made priests.of the lowest of the people (v. 31). God had set aside the
tribe of Levi to fill the office of priesthood. In this again, he disobeyed
God. (3) He changed the day of the
feast of the tabernacle (v. 32). The
time of this feast was set by Jehovah
(Lev. 23:33-3-1).. (4) Jeroboam.himself intrudes into the priest's office (v.
33). This act of presumption on his
part was the climax of his- godless
acts. ' All this grew out of a wicked

It is hard to realize that a full
twelvemonth has elapsed since we
last wished onr readers a happy
and prosperous New Year, yet we
trust that for everyone the familiar
phase carries the same sense of rejuvenation and kindliness as in the
The mouths which have gone to
make np 1921 have been less stirring than in years still close to
us which were packed with
great events, aud perhaps less
happy for some than those previous
spans that were flush with excitement, tragedy, the joy of effort and
artificial prosperity. At times a
drab pessimism has seemed to
settle down ou the public mind,
which should have no place in a
country so blessed with opportunities and the means of subsistence
as Canada. A convalescent world
which .finds the task of recovery,
slower than anyone anticipated, is
subject to fits of gloom and Canada
is not immune from such lapses
. into depression.
If" the year 1921 were put on
trial for its sins there would no
doubt be many witnesses, against
its character. Business would have
much, complaint; and i.ndictstry
likewise". In some countries there
has been a grievous need /without
themeans to buy; in others'an.
overflowing plenty that has destroyed the profits of   sale;  everything
��� topsy-turvy in:an.economic.sense.
Yet jet us be.thankful that Canada
���'������ comes within the latter .category;
;..that .our   people-cannot,  starve.;
And -if', we look abroad to European
��� countries where the wolf is howling
ut nearly everyone's door, we can-
'.. not,but realize .that  Canada "has
r .much' to be thankful for.   "���
. Drab as the/past year.has beep,
it may be that in future centuries
7 it 'will be.'regarded as one 0* the
the moBt important in human history; the year in which the seed, of
a���greafc movement for mutual forbearance and universal - peace first
.came - up. iri young - arid,' > fragile
.shoots,  ��� Whether they are .to grow
.-. stronger and. produce a great har-.
vest'/that "will-bless humanity as it
never before has been blessed  tim e
"alone can tell.
The New Year
A Flower unblown; a Book unread;
A Tree with Fruit unharvested;
A Path untrod; a House whose rooms
Lack yet the heart's divine perfumes;
A Landscape whose wide border lies
In silent shade 'neath silent skies;
A wondrous Fountain yet unsealed; "
A Casket with it's gifts concealed;
This is the year that for you waits
Beyond tomorrovy's mystic gates.

If the depression of year 1921
has taught us nothing else,  it has
at least convinced   everyone that
war settles nothing, that resort to
arms leaves things worse th an before.    If the. year 1921 lias really

If you are a twentieth century woman you are incapable
of being- idle and unambitious. Unless you have a definite
aim in life you don't belong1 to this age even if )'-ou were
born sometime during the last hundred years. It is the
fashion to be earnest, to have an active brain and a loving
heart. To be in touch with the. times you must be connected with some of the great reforms; it maybe temperance or missionary work. You inay have a personal interest in one of the.stupendous charities of. the day.. In
any event you must be ��� interested in. something . besides
fashion and other follies, for women are coming to the
front-���nay, are: already- there. . Their feet are no longer
in slippery places, they���are..learning how to��� be. generous
and helpful.to each.other, for the leaders, are lending a
hand to their less: fortunate sisters. They extend it to
all classes, from the woman who putters with.patch .work
to the degraded devotee of Bacchus. . .. .
