Midway Xmas  Entertainment
On   Wednesday   20th inst.   the
Presbyterian church  was crowded
to overflowing when   the children
presented their parents and friends
with an excellent programme. The
first item   was   a   march   by the
school children followed by singing
of "O Canada."   Bush's Orchestra
next delighted the audience with a
musical selection entitled   "Somewhere a Voice   is   Calling,   which
was   encored.     Alice   McMynn's
recitation   "Santa Claus and the
Mouse" was greeted with applause.
An action   song   by   the junior
girlB entitled "Cloudland" was very,
pretty, each child wearing a white
dress and silver crown to represent
snowflakes.    A pianoforte iolo entitled "Waiting" by  Nellie Brown
was very much appreciated,   after
which Mrs. Birch rendered a vocal
selection "The Valley of Laughter"
and was encored,      Next   came a
dialogue "Flags of all Nations" by
the janior boys and. Nellie Brown.
England, France, Russia, Holland,
Switzerland, Japan, Spain, America, China and Miss  Canada  being
represented.     This item  was   en- .
Little Philip Pannell sang the
"Alphabet song" and waa encored.
This was followed by Wand and
Ribbon drills by the girls. The
next item was a Christmas ^Carol
by the school then a recitation by
Mae Sharpe.
Bush's Orchestra kindly-obliged
again with "Humoreske"   a very   ,
beautiful selection.    The boys now
went through their Wandand "Rib-
boo drills.
An action'song by Joy Sha.pe,
Alice ' McMynn,   Annie   Thomet,,
Pearl Johneon and Mayneen Bush "-'
caused an outburst"of mirth".--They
were dressed to represent old ladies
[���and 'acted'their.pariWveryVwelL-' iii
"When I was a Girl You Know,"
The next item  was a dialogue
entitled "Women's business meeting." "   The audience   were   convulsed with   laughter.      (Wilfrid
Carter) the henpecked husband is
left to rock the baby and wash the
clothes,    while   his   wife   (Annie
Thomet)    attends    tha   women's
meeting.    The  next scene shows
the women at the   meeting  and
Mrs. Smith (Nellie Brown) calling
them, to order, which is an almost
impossible thing  to do.    While a
ballot, to elect a president, is going
on a  terrible hubbub takes place
and finally a woman  with a groff
.voice (Harold   Moll)- moves to go ~
faomejwhieh^ends the meeting,    in
the finish the henpacked husband-'
is seen reading instead, of working
and his wife takes after him with
the broom stick.
Mrs. Birch delighted the audience again with her sweet voice
and sang "Birds of Jnne."
The last item on the program
was a march and song "The Maple
Leaf" by the school and the programme came to an end with "God
Save the King."
Santa Clans direct from Toyland

A Greater Canada
With tlio closing of tho year, and lhc dawning of a now >ear witli all its
possibilities and opportunities, it is ine\ itable il-.nl tlie thoughts of a .sane ami
progressive people should turn u> questions having lo do villi thc further development, lhe prosperity, lite !iappitir>s and ff>iiir-nlincut of their own land.
And ia Inking thai forward look t'anadians will surely realize that., when all
other .subjects have been discussed and analysed, tho one thins needed above
all oilier., to promote .lm welfare of their 'dominion is a largely augmented
popnlaiion. Thai is io say, Ihe sulijeci i.-.. and must eonlinue to he, a para-
.mount issue in .102;i and succeeding years until Canada can rejoice 3n a popula-
Hon rommensurate lo its vast urea and almost inexhaustible wealth of natural
It makes liule difference which one of the numerous problems confronting Canada as a nation is examined;, in pracl it-ally every instauee it will be
found thai ihe problem is acute because: there are so few people to handle it.
The amount of taxation that has to be carried, Federally, Provincially or as
municipalities .or school districts, is unduly burdensome because there are too
few people among whom it can be distributed. Tliere are losses in railway
opera!ion because of the enormous.mileage required in a country stretched i'or
thousands of miles across ;i continent and inhabited by a mere handful of
people. School houses erected and teachers employed to instruct a small
group of children whereas double the number could be pr
cally the same expense���and even these small groups have to be collected
from unreasonably long distances in all too numerous cases.
Appeal From Germany
Letter Is Received by Dominion Command of G.W.V.A.
"But a few dollars from you would
make joyful hearts and the thought ol
you will bring us nearer together," ia
fhe appeal contained in n letter received by the Dominion Command, Great
War Veterans' Association, from tho
German National Association on behalf of cripples, widows and orphans
of the Great War. The letter, wliich
was written in German, was signed by
Alfgred Brandhorst, and -was forwarded i'rom a suburb of Berlin.
"France," he writes, "Knows no
limits of hatred, and a new war is at
the gates, perhaps within a short
time. Tha thought of it," he adds,
���'makes us shiver, as we know how
much new miser.y' will be brought
through it."
Jlerr Brandhorst appeals to tho
G.WA'.A. to "work with us towards
the end of having people brought to
an understanding."

By Breathing the  Healing  Balsams of
Catarrhozone, You Are Made Well
Without Using  Drugs
You breathe  through the Caiarrko-

Incisor Is the Latin name for scissors. The four front teeth above and
the four front teeth below aio called
the incisors because they cut like
scissors. They were really intended
to cut food, but it seems to be customary to use them lo cut threads, bile
off cigar ends, sharpen lead pencils,
hold pins, nails, pillowslips, packages,
tickets, transfers and anything else
lhat requires a third hand. The two
large teeth In lhe centre above are
called the upper central Incisors. The
two little ones in the centre below are
Ihe lower central incisors. The teeth
on each side of the central incisors
above and below arc the lateral incisors or side cutters, if you will notice
your own front teeth, you will find
thai the upper teeth close In front of
the lower teeth. They pass eacli
other just like the blades of a pair of
scissors. These tcelh enable us to
bite off foods, particularly bread,
fruits and vegetables. They support
the centre of the lips and help io give
expression to the face. In rpeaking
and in singing they have a very wonderful effect in moulding the column
of healing, soothing balsams; full of
pincy antiseptic essences tliat resemble the air of the pine woods in the
Adirondacks. This piney vapor has a
Iruly marvelous action on weak
throats. It brings strength and
health to the bronchi tie, stops that
hacking cough and dillicult breathing.
You can't find anything for weak-
throated people more beneficial -than
Catarrhozone.  "  It  means  heaven  on

The construction roads, telephones, the maintenance of postal routes and 'eases of the nose, throat, and bronchial
other services through districts having such scanty population that the services iu Question pass by miles of unoccupied lands and are consequently excessive in cost to the few who have to pay, or be denied such services.
Kvery quarter section or half section of land to be settled on means a
lessening of burdens for the occupant of every other quarter section in the
same district. It means the possibility of better schools, better roads, better telephone service, better postal and transportation facilities. It means
bringing ihe doctor, the dentist, the church, nearer tlie farm home. It means
belter marketing facilities in the nearby market town, better stores in which
to ;nake purchases, better selection of goods to choose from, improved service
all round.
The people of Canada can hardly fail lo appreciate the truth of these
things, yet for some reason or other the average man displays little or no
active interest in the great national question of immigration, aud such interest
as the average man does display seems to find expression in the urging of
objections to any and every policy that is advanced to promote the incoming
oi! new settlers, whereas the interests of all would best be served by urging
the advantages to be derived from such additions to the wealth producing
power of the country.

The tip of the tongue does the most
remarkable acrobatic stunts just back
of these front, teeth to make the delicate variation of space thai is needed
lo pronounce words j.o that they, will
sound right to other people's ears. .The
delicacy of lingering on the strings of
a violin even in the hands of a great
artist is crude compared to the wonderful team work between the tip of
the tongue and the incisor teeth.
Damage lo these teeth means impaired speech, ruined facial expression
and loss of the power to bite off food.
It is very injurious lo use the teeth for.
a third hand or for an emergency tool
kit. The incisors are so necessary
for so many things tliat they deserve
the best of care.
The Farmer and the
,.   High Cost of Living
Not the Farmer's Exorbitant Profits
That Makes Bread Expensive
Unemployment Is not by any means
as general in the cities this year, as
was the case last winter. Wages
have declined considerably and in consequence production is increasing and
it has become profitable to keep factories going at full time. But with
the fall In wages lias come a general
dissatisfaction with the present cost
of the necessities of life, and the usual
casting of blame for it as far back as
possible. In the case of bread and
meat the fanner is receiving blame
from the majority of cily people, who,
In the mad rush of things give themselves no time lo do any independent
For instance, with broad the staff of
life, al 10._- cents for the pound and
a half loaf, if is an easy and perhaps
a satisfying kind of a thing to launch
out in abuse of the farmer, who is pictured as coining money out ofrlhe bare
living of the poor, hard-working creatures of the towns!- In London, England, tho four-pound loaf, probably
made from Canadian Hour, on en costs
little more than that, and at the present lime is to be had id the bakers for
less than twenty cents, or live cents a
The matter is worthy of a little
consideraliou, for lhe farmer is too
necessary to human existence to be
loaded down with undeserved blame.
Who is lo blame for the undoubtedly high price of bread���say in Montreal, as the typical Caiiadjan city?
Bread is handed in at house doors, by
a costly man and cohered van delivery, for JO',4 cents per loaf of 2-1
ounces, weighed thirteen hours after
bakiug. To the. comer groceries jt
is delivered wholesale for il.i cents,
and these establishments commouly
charge an additional cent for their own
cost of delivery, making the cost 11._
cents   per  loaf.      The( baker   claims

Panama Canal Traffic
Do Large Breaths Hurt ?
Is Your Chest Wheezy?
Uss of Waterway in. Next ���'Fifty Years
Beyond Calculation
When Colonel Morrow, Governor of
the Panama Canal Gone, predicts in
his annual report a four-fold increase
in canal traffic, he.Is probably making
a moderate estimate. This, waterway
is so great a time-saver for transportation not only between east and west
coasts of North and South America,
but between Asia and eastern ports
of the United States and western ports
of Europe, that the use of the Panama
Canal in the next fifty years ia almost
beyond calculation. It played an important part iu the world war. Before the United Slates entered the
struggle :!,2SO,000 tons of Chilean
nitrates, copper, tungsten and vanadium ores for the manufacture of explosives passed through for the Allies,
and after the United States joined
them ?.,(.���!-1,113 Ions were shipped to
this country. Dispatch in transportation was urgent. If the canal had

Where Horses Are Safe
No Danger of Having Them Stolen in
New York
New York may have thugs of virtually every description, but a horso
thief is almost unknown In tho greater city. A horse is probably as safo
anywhere In New York as in tlio
most rural and honest hamlet iu tho
United States. Take the official records of the Police Department as
authority for the statement that in
the first ten months of tho current
year but four horses have been stolen
from their owners. During the same
period 5.S22 automobiles and trucks ot
various sizes, ages and shapes wero
taken. It should be added, however,
that thirty-three horses and wagons
containing no merchandise were made
away with, and thirty-seven horses
with, wagons filled with goods. - But
in these cases the wagon rather than
the animal was tho objective. The
true, dyed-in-the-wool horso thief
takes only animals that are unattached.

Forest Reserves Open to Grazing
Certain Areas In Prairie Provinces
"Have Been Open for Some
Years Past
In accordance with its established
policy of making the most of all the
natural resources of the land under
Its control, the Forestry Branch of
the Department of the Interior decided some years ago to throw open for
use certain areas of the forest reserves' in the prairie provinces that
were adapted for grazing and were
not Immediately required for reforestation purposes. -This policy has
been supplemented by the initiation of
A regular survey of the grazing lands
of the reserves. The-success of the
policy lias been marked, although, naturally, the depression in .the stock
industry of late years has been reflected in th_e__use_ made, of .the, reserves.
Grazing in the forest reserves was
first practiced in 1911, and the value
of the use was soon shown by the increase in the number of stock grazed
' on the reserves. In 1919 the number
was only a few liundred short of 100,-
000, although since somewhat reduced
owing to the depression In the.industry. ' A striking feature of this work
Is "the number of small proprietors
that are served in this way. In a
number of cases, however, these have
formed themselves Into co-operative
associations,' in order the better to
look after their own interests, and
the formation of these associations has
. made for good results In thc relations
between the branch and the individual
, proprietors.
Wholesale Prices Advance
Average Price of Foodstuffs Advances
One-Third of One Per Cent.
In November
The average', wholesale prices of i>2
leading staple food commodities during the month of November ..show an
increase as compared with the general
average during October of .323 vper
cent, of about one-third of one per
cent. The outstanding,feature in the
markets during the month of November was'the steady increase in the
price of flour, which showed an advance of from 10c to 20c every week
during tho month, the average, price
on Manitoba hard wheat flour being
$7.05 per barrel as against the average
of $6.75 for October. Cereals also Inclined upward, particularly rolled
oats and cornmeal, the averago price
of the former being 15c per bag and
the latter 273/2C per bag higher than'
the average'in October. Eggs and
butter were higher by 2c per lb., while
cheese increased 4c per lb. The comparison, of prices shows as well-declines of a few cents per dozen on

This year's harvest. of grain has
yielded 47,000,00 tons, which is
about 13,000,000 tons more than, last
year, and 20,000,000 tons less than the
pre-war production. Allowing 7,000,-
000 tons for sowing purposes, 28,000,-
000 tons for the needs, of the peasants,
and some 3,000,000 ions for the needs
of. the towns, there is a balance ot
over 8,000,000 tons, the greater part
of,.which,.according "to .the report,

Men With Spirit Who Are Saving the
Irish Free State
It is perhaps not generally, known
that among the editors of the Dublin
Freeman's Journal, just ordered by
Republicans to leave Ireland under
pain of death, 13 a well-known Canadian. Mr. H. .N. Moore, son of the
Rev. T. Albert Moore, the prominent
Methodist divine, has been managing
editor of the Freeman for the past
four turbulent years. His office's have
been raided in turn by Sinn Feiners,
Black and Tans, and Republicans, the
paper-'s presses have been destroyed,
the building riddled with bullets, but
Mooie, with a threat of death constantly hanging over him, has steadfastly kept his course. When the
Republicans smashed the Freeman's
-press, Moore and Martin Fitzgerald
got out the edition on a handbill and
defied their enemies. Later on an
emissary of O'Maille, the most desperate of the Republicans, called at
Moore's residence and placed into his
wfe's hands an ultimatum to the effect
lhat his failure lo change the policy
of the Freeman would be punished- by
certain death. Tho only reply was an
editorial calling for a more ruthless
policy toward O'Maille and his associates.
It is this spirit that is saving the
Free Slate. Men like Cosgrave, Mul-
cahy, O'HIgglns and their associates
pursue their duties dogged by the
shadow of death. That they go on, ,
steadfast and unafraid, is the best
proof that Ireland has within her the
spirit that will guarantee her future
life.���From the Ottawa Journal. .

Farewell Old Year
Thk old year will ��oon haye
passed into history. We part with
it as with an old friend. To some
it has brought mnch joy���to others
sorrow. Yet we are reluctant to
uay farewell. Lilie the ^palsied
man it totters as it nears tbe end
of life's journey and goeB forward
toward* that vast vault wherein
doth lie the forms of dead dynasties
aDd sheeted centuries swept by the
remorseless hand of time to that
great graveyard at the entrance of
which rises the imaginery tombstone upon which ie inscribed the
words: Thb Past. There is a
sublime solemnity in the slowly
moving, yet never varying tide of
years. Man has marked its course
into hours, days, weeks, months,
years and centuries, yet, H rushes
" on, on, on, and. still on, utterly
unmindful    of "the; puny   marks
praised to, measure-the. tide that
never.tires; -Dynasties have risen,
Nourished and decayed; cities have
sprung from fertile, plains and then
sank.beneath the. desert's drifting
sands; continents have reared their
. -lofty-brows above the.ocean's tract-

.coral caverns 7. from   whence they
rose;.races have"risen to the noon

' with the same regularity as when
i.t.first issued forth, from the hol-
' low of God's hand, to the chant of
- the morning stars that. proclaimed

Frank Campolieto is on a visit to
his home from Nelson.
Mrs. Tanner, of Kettle Valley,
and her son returned home on
Wednesday after spending Xmas
with her two daughters Mrs. F.
Malletta and Mrs. R. A. Roylance.
The dance held on the 22nd in
connection with the Maple Leaf
Social Club, was a thoroughly enjoyable affair, over 40 people being
present which was pleasing as there
were several social parties held the
same night in the neighborhood.
The music was supplied by Oscar
Johnstone, of Midway, R. Roylance and Gus Graizer. J. Keady
was M. C. in the absence of F.
Malletta, who kept the dance going
in one whirl till 2.30 and everyone
expressing it one of the best social
evenings spent in the school.
Several more new members joined
the club. The nest Club night will
be Friday, Jan. 12feh, when cards
will be played.
The Xmas Tree given for the
school children of Anaconda last
Friday was a splendid affair. Tht
children had a real Christmasy
time and the presents given were
very useful and appropriate. A.
Legaulfe made a very acceptable
Santa Claus. The. parents were
delighted with the whole arrangements and great credit is due Miss
Stewart aud Mrs. Lund for the
way the children were trained.
There is universal regret that Miss
Stewart is leaving the school as she
is exceptionally popular with
scholars and parents alike. Everyone wishes Miss Stewart success
and hope that she will see her way
clear to return to Anaconda at no
great distant date.

Bondholders to Take Over

A Vancouver report eays:-
Bondholders of the Canada Copper Corporation Limited propose
taking over the Copper Mountain
and Ferry County, Wash., properties of that company following nonpayment of more than ��300,000 of
interest and $2,500,000 principal

Belfast,. Ireland���For-the first
.tinie on: record a" Canadian-bound
steamer sailed from Belfast Lough
conveying ' mails, direct- from the
Northern capital. The vessel was
!the Canadian Pacific Railway Company's S.S.V'Metagama." which, in-
.cidentally, was built in Belfast. The,
vessel'anchored off Kilrpot and 23
bags o'f = mail, together with some
100!.emigrants froni Ulster,- were
conveyed to it by,.the Harbor Commissioners'; tug' "Musgrave,"'
Hitherto it had been,the practice-
: to send, the mails to Liverpool and
.other ports; from which'they were
��� despatched, but, acting-on instructions from the! secretary of the Post
..Office in London, the present "system was introduced.      -'���������'.
.7 One of the passengers was a five-
year-old child, from. Dublin, whose
parents1 are in'!Canada.    The.little
one was in charge of a matron who
handed it over to the matron of the
"Metagama." -       7
A Belfast "Telegraph". representative was shown over the "Metagama," and saw something of the
excellent arrangements made for
the. comfort of passengers. .-

Quebec Skllug maid pauses to take In tbe beauty of h��r etiTlronment. ,
OVER all the world there's not an->
other place like Quebec. Its
beauty and its .old-world charm have
made it famous everywhere^ Three
hundred years have passed since first
it began to be, and each one of those
years has left it's mark upon the town
until it has become "a storehouse of
Canadian history. It is a place for all
the world to visit, and yet it is, perhaps,
less well known to Canadians than it
is to Americans who every year come
north to see it when summer suns bathe
its bold outlines, or when winter ,.snows
crown the lofty citadel and the town's
many spires. It is in winter that Quebec is at its best. At no other time is
it so characteristically Canadian or
so typically French and it is in winter
that - Quebec most enthusiastically
throws open its doors to invite the
world to see how joyously splendid winter in Canada can be.
.Sitting high upon the famous rock
and overlooking the wide.sweep of the
St. Lawrence, and the snow covered
Laurentian hills' tht Chateau Frontenac,
always a fitting crown to the splendid
scene is now made still more so by the
addition of a town that will double the
accommodation of this famous hotel.
On a winter night there is no more perfect scene. The thousand lights of the
upper and lower town glint on the sriow
and above them all hang the graceful
outline* of the Chateau, every lighted
window telling of the comfort and gay-
ety that waits within. '  -��� '
The interior of the Chateau is in perfect keeping with the historic charm of
the ancient city, while its appointments
and cuisine are the last word in comfort and modern e'xcellohc. Jt is ore
of those places where home comforts
are combined with the conveniences of
the up-to-date hgh class hotel.
Arrangements have been completed
for Quebec's program'of winter sports
and as the season has set in.with plenty
of snow the program anay be said to
be already under way.* A triple chute
toboggan slide has been erected, to extend from the too of citadel rock down
to the terrace and along to the main
entrance of the Chateau, and- night
after night it is crowded with happy,
parties of tobogganers. Tlie skating
rink on the terrace with its warm dressing rooms is a constant source of delight to guests and not a few of the
men have already begun the winteir's
program of curling on the covered rink.
The snowshoe and skiing clubs of the
city have their programs of events well
under way, and there are endless opportunities for the guests to participate
in  the outdoor  sports. Snowshoe
tramps, skiing events, and sleigh driving, are daily occurrances and these are
organized under the direction of a
sports-master whose business it is to
see that visitors to the city have every .
opportunity of taking an active part
in the sports if.^they so desire.c Curling will be a special feature this whiter, partly as a result of the visit to the
city of the visitfcig Scotch Curlers ear-'
ly in January and on the night of January 31st a parade of snowshoers and a
fireworks display will form an out
standing event.
