A most' enjoyable dance was
held in" the Anaconda school

the Anaconda children. ^ $35
was taken in with " an expenditure of $6 leaving a net balance
of $29. The music was supplied
by Miss Stewart, Geo. Clerf, N.
Butler and' Miss Mcginnell.
Dancing was kept up until 2.30

The Banff Orchestra is meeting
with huge success and tremendous crowds throughout .their tour

Soon it will be time - for the
ratepayers to take an interest in
the'very important duty of choos-
ia__f a Council for next year. It
is the duty of everyone who pays
taxes to take a hand in choosing
the men who will administer the
affairs of the town next -year.
The. present Council have done
their duty nobly .and well and it
would be hard'to select as good a
Mayor and Council, but some of
theni have been on that Council
for -years and it is hardly lair lo
shove all the work of this thankless job on the shoulders of a few
willing and loyal citizens? There
is always a lot of unjust criticism
meted out to a Council no matter
how hard they, work or proficient
they may be, and at best the
position is a most thankless one.

The meeting held in the Board
of Trade rooms on Monday night
to discuss ways and means of
running the Rink was. most satisfactory. G. S. Walters was in
the chair and after explaining
the object of the meeting called
for the views of those present.
A resolution was finally passed
appointing a committee to go
thoroughly into the matter, find
out what it would cost to run the
Rink and see what revenue could
be derived therefrom. The committee was given full power to
have the Rink opened if they saw
fit. Messrs J. Price,- Chas.
Nichols, H, R. Bidder, L. Bryant
and G. W. A. Smith were the appointed committee and immediately got busy, finally deciding
that there would be sufficient
season tickets sold and subscriptions received ��� to "warrant the
opening of the rink." VFoe Price
was appointed rink manager and
it was decided to sell tickets as}
follows: Gents $SV ladies $3.50,
children (16 and under including
school children) $2, family ticket
$10. Single admission, adults
25 cts, children 15 cts. The committee feel-it will be a successful
season and hope that all who can
will turn out,,and- enjoy this
healthy and invigorating Canadian exercise.

\Vill Immigration Benefit Or Hurt?
Is it k\ thc best interests or Canada that, a new and 'far-reaching policy in
regard to immigration hc. adopted and that vigorous action be taken to encourage a large influx- of now settlers?
Or does Canada's interests rather Ho in tho direction op advertising lo the
world"that U does not particularly welcome newcomers, aud, instead ol.facilitating immigration, erect even higher barriers against., and impose greater
restrictions upon, the entry of p\.ople into the Dominion?
People in Canada are divided into two groups on this important subject
or immigration, -\vllh one. group supporting the view sol forth in tlie first paragraph above, and the other group advocating the policy outlined in the second
paragraph.
Generally speaking, organized labor is outspoken against airy really effective policy, and in this the arlizan. class lias the support of clerks, sniall salaried men and women, laborers, etc. On the other hand, all the big transportation, financial, manufacturing aud commercial interests are quite positive
in declaring that if Canada is to grow and prosper it must abandon it, policy
o[ indifference, if indeed not opposition to immigration.
Are these opposing schools of thought on this question both actuated by
nothing but selfishness, each considering their own particular interests only,
and giving no consideration to tbe interests of others or the welfare of tlie
country as a whole? Or is each of them honestly convinced of tlie soundness
of the position they take? Or are such radically different aud antagonistic
opinions the result of honest convictions resulting from the divergent points
of view from -which the question is approached?
For example, is the arhzan now in employment opposed to immigration
because of a belief that -with the incoming of more people his employment
would be endangered, or his -wages in danger of being lowered? .- And, tbe man
who is at present out'ot employment, is,he. fearful-that incoming-immigrants
might get,the work ho hopes .to'secure, br-..failing;tq get work serve io.iJweU

Placing Most Dilapidated Marne
Veteran In Invalides Museum
e Veterans of the Marne," that
fleet of old-fashioned, infirm, two-
cylinder taxicabs tliat have been cruising the streets of Paris for seventeen
years -are to be signally honored
by the Ministry of War for tbe decisive part tlie.v played in the historic battle which saved Paris.
The oldest, most dilapidated taxi is
io be solemnly escorted by a body of
veteran chauffeurs to the Invalides
war museum, where it will be given
a prominent place among ihe relics.
These ancient red cabs, which are
regarded by visiting Americans us
great curiosities, still rush around
Paris day and night iu rain or shine,
at breakneck speed, their progress being marked by a terrible rattle, but
they are rapidly being replaced by
modern cars.
H was in these machines that, al
the critical stage of the bailie of the
Manic, Gen. Gallic-lit sent 6,000 fresh
loops from Paris almost to i.h<> actual
fighting area, where the French left
wing was seriously threatened. The !
chauffeurs, who were all too old lo
fight, were conscripted as they drove
along thf slreeis. Their passengers
were ordered out and at least five soldiers were put aboard each cab and
started for the front. Tlie taxis drove
back and forth for two da.s and
nights, supplying fresh troops io
tlie German drive on the capital.

Strange   Creatures   Found    In   Santa
Domingo. By Dr. Noble
Frogs that' bark like dogs, squeal
like pigs and are born frogs Instead of
tadpoles were discovered in the jungles of the Island of Santo Domingo
by Dr. and Mrs. G. Kingsley Noble ofthe American Museum of Natural History. New York, who haye just returned from a three-months expedition
through the iafTuid.
And just to prove ' that the frog
with the dog-pig voice is not a tropical dream, they brought several live
specimens with them and have them
in the museum al 77th Street and Central Park AVest. Details of the successful expedition were made known
recently.
Then loo they brought back giant
tree frogs, thc largest known in the
world. These frogs have some long
technical name, but a more descriptive one would be "poison ivy."
When touched they exude a milky
i substance that irritates the hands
aud causes inflammation similar to
poison ivy.
Phinceros iguanas lhat -look like
direct, pocket edition descendants of
the pre-historic dinosaurs also came
along in cages and they hiss about
in a room on tbe second floor of the
museum building.
The Nobles wen, lo Santo Domingo
in July. They traversed tho whole
island. Dr. Noble is in charge of the
l.eptile Department of the Musev"-
and Mis. Noble holds an official
position there.

For-Prolonging Life
Chicago ��� Doctor Says Too Much
Chlorine In Peoples System
What be declares to be a "life-prolonging serum," has been discovered
by Dr. William Held, noted Chicago
physician, originator of the glandular
cure for epilepsy.
People die too young chiefly t because, the doctor said, they have too
much chlorine in'. tlicir systems.
Eliminate the chlorine and tbe barrier to long life has been removed.
The age. of 100, even 150, would
not. be extraordinary in the present
zippy-twentieth century era, if the
doctor's -experiments are carried out
to any great extent in the future.
Occasional cases of persons living to
the age of Methuselah���900 ' odd
years���would not startle tbe doctor.
One Chicago man already is a living testimonial to tlie efficacy of the
life-giving serum, according to Dr.
Held. jV few months ago he was almost decrepit ou account of arterio

What is CASTORIA?
Castoria is a harmless substitute for Cantor Oil, Paregoric",
Drops -and Soothing Syrups. It is pleasant. It contains
neither Opium, Morphine nor other narcotic substance.. Its
age is its guarantee. For more than thirty years it has
been in constant use for the relief of Constipation, Flatulency,
Wind Colic and Diarrhoea; allaying Feyerishness arising
therefrom, and by regulating the Stomach and Bowels, aids
the assimilation of Food; giving healthy and natural sleep.

An Atmospheric Defect

""" Plants'and Humans- '
The drying up of the tips of,leaves
of house plants is' a sign of too scant
moisture in the atmosphere. This is
quite common trouble during the. winter .in steam-heated buildings. One
of"the plants wliich will-inost quickly
���show this trouble is the ornamental
asparagus, asparagus piumosa, or "asparagus fern" as it is often, wrongly
named. . It is well to remember also
that such an atmospheric condition is

I. The Seventy Sent Forth (vv. 1, 2).
1. Appointed by the Lord (v. 1).
Only those should go forth who are
appointed by the Lord.
2. Sent Forth Two by Two (v. 1);
The purpose of this was that they
might mutually help, counsel and support each other.
3. Reason for Their Appointment (v.
2). The; harvest was great, but the
laborers were few. The task before
the Christian church after nearly 1,900
years is still great.
. 4. Pray'the Lord to Send Forth Laborers (v. 2). The realization of the
prodigious task before us will cause
us to pray to the Lord to send forth
more laborers,
ft. Instructions Given (vv. 3-16).
1. lie Reveals the Dangers Confronting Them (v. 3). They were thrust
forth by the Lord to proclaim His
name, though so doing would expose
them to deadly peril, even as lambs
surrounded by hungry wolves, It matters not what the dangers are if the
Lord sends forth.
2. Free From All Incumbrance (v.
4). The mission was urgent, so all
that would in any way"- hinder the
speedy execution of the task was to be
left behind. ^ " /^
.. 3. Destruction of Social Intercourse
to Be Omitted (v. 41). Eastern salutations were long-drawn affairs. To j
go into such formalities would delay
Christ's messengers. ' ��� I
: 4. Behavior in the Homes Where Received (vv. 5-9). (1) Offer the peace
of the gospel (vv. 5, 6). This is to be
done regardless as to -whether it will
be received or not. There is,a reflex
blessedness in preaching the gospel.
Even when the message is^rejected
the effort is not wasted, but comes
back to the one who has made the effort. (2) Do not shift quarters (vv.
7, 8). Missionaries should remain- in
the home where they have been received, content with what is given
them. ��� They should not demand'better food and more comfortable quarters than what is commonly provided.
However, that which is given should
be gratefully received, for the laborer is worthy of his hire, (3) Healed
the sick (v. 9). These disciples were-
given power to heal the -sick. The
ministers of Christ, should seek to give
relief to those in distress and use
every opportunity to proclaim the
gospel message.      "                   :
0. The Awful'Fate of Those* Who
Reject Christ's Message (<vv. 10-16).
Their case is more hopeless than that
of Sodom.' Those who reject Christ's
messengers reject Christ.
III. The "Return of the Seventy  (/v.
17-24). ' ^ ,
1. Their Report (v.. 17).. They were
highly, elated. They seemed to be.
agreeably7.surprised. - They not on!y

Passing of Bob Edwards
1       i
Editor of Calgary  Eye Opener. Succumbs to Heart Failure
. R.    C.   Edwards, M.L.A., editor of
the Calgary Eye Opener, died recently
at his residence in Calgary.    ���
For many months he had been prostrated, with heart trouble, brought on
by an atta"Ck of influenza, contracted
while attending the spring session of
the Alberta Legislature.
He is survived by his widow, there
being no children.
��� The late Mr. Edwards was born
September 12, 1864, at Edinburgh,
Scotland. He was educated at St.
Andrew's and File Colelges and later
graduated from Glasgow University.
Coining to Canada in 1895, he entered the field of weekly newspapers in
Alberta towns. For the past decade
he had been the editor of the Calgary
Eye Opener.
Mr, Edwards remained single until
four years ago, when he married
Kate Penman, of Blackbridge, Scotland. He.was a Presbyterian in religion and independent in politics.
He was first elected, to the Alberta
Legislature at the general elections
of 1921.

They make an entire and clean sweep

War
In the fight-against tuberculosis, announcement is made by the Winnipeg
Anti-Tuberculosis Society that a number of local- medical men and interested citizens have~~banded togetheir for
the purpose of purchasing a herd of
goats for Winnipeg, Nso that babies in
the city may be supplied with goats'
milk.
It was stated at the recent mgeting
of the society at Winnipeg that goats

Donations   Coming   Along   to
Everywoman's Fund
Everywoman's Fund, for the care of
50 tubercula'r Saskatchewan women
during 1923, begins to look less shadowy. It is now assured that one out
of-the 50 at all events will get medical care. . The Golden West Chapter,
I.O.D.E. at Saskatoon, is setting aside
S28..00 a mouth for tubercular women.
The Women's Educational Club, Regina, has promised the dollar a member that is asked of every woman in
Saskatchewan who has not got the
disease, and it is not yet telling how
much more it will do for the fund before 1923 is out.
The Provincial I.O.D.E. is inviting
A. B. Cook, business manager of,, the
Fort Qu'Appelle Sanatorium, to talki
to its, executive early in December,
and it will then discuss what help il
can give. The Central and West End
W.C.T.U. branches, Regiua, have
pledged themselves to-do their, share
towards tiie care of tubercular women
who are in the clutches of poverty as
well as of consumption. The Was-
cana and Capital Ciij Lodges of the
Knights of Pythias, are entering upon
relief work for the tubercular.

The Usual Treatment Does Not Reach
the Root of the Trouble
Most treatments for rheumatism do
no more than aim to keep down the
poison in the'blood and enable nature
to overcome that particular attack.
Then when the system becomes rundown from any cause the disease
again gets the upper hand and it all
has to be done over.
Sufferers from rheumatism who
have found their condition unrelieved
or actually growing worse while using
other remedies, would do well to try
Dr. 'Williams' Pink Pills. The tonic
treatment with this", medicine has
proved in thousands of cases that it
builds up the blood to a point that_en-
ables it to cast out the,rheumatic
poison., through the regular channels
of excretion, the bowels, kidneys and
the skin. When this is done rheumatism Is banished, and as long as the
blood is kept pure and rich the patient
will be Immune from attack. This
is proved by the case of Mrs. J.
Hewitt, Beach P.O., Hamilton, Ont.,
who says: "For a number of years I
was-troubled with muscular 0rheuma-
tism, which caused me a great deal
of suffering. I would get rid. of the
.trouble for a time, but it always came
back. A friend recommended Dr.
Williams' Pilik Pills and I have not
had an attack of rheumatism since T
took them, and that is five years ago.
L have since used the pills for anaemia and found them equally good,
and I now recommend them to any
friends who may be ailing."
You can get these pills from any
medicine dealer or by mail at 50 cents
a box or six boxes for $2.50 from
The Dr. Williams* Medicine Co.,
Brockville, Ont.   "
BARELY LIVED THROUGH IT
A terrible experience had Edw. J.
O'Connor, of Sault Ste Marie. From,
boyhood he writes: "I have been 4a
constant sufferer, from Asthma and
Catarrh. My nose and throat was of- <���
ten stopped up, and I had disagreeable
droppings from my throat. When an
attack of coughing came on, it seemed
as if I would barely live through it.
I would gasp for breath. Catarrhozone made me well. Its soothing
healing action, was exactly suited to
my case." To those who suffer from
Catarrh, Asthma, Throat Irritation
and Bronchitis, ���Catarrhozone Is highly
recommended. Two months treatment one dollar/smaller sizes 25c and
60c at all dealers or The Catarrhozone -

Winter Tips For Motorists
Few Changes Are Required for Cold '
Weather Operation
A motorist should have no mora
trouble with his cars in winter than
he has in summer if he takes the right
precautions. Cold weather operation
requires just a few changes from
summer running, and a superintendent
of the motor equipment department of
the Texas Company- gives the follow-
six helpful suggestions, to those operating motor cars in cold weather:
1. Use a good, clear oil with a low
cold test. It will ilow at tk,e first
turnover.
2. A little alcohol in your radiator
will prevent a frozen radiator, cause
less inconvenience and preclude
cracked cylinder blocks.
3. %A radiator cover will keep your
engine and radiator warm. it also
makes far easier starting and saves
your storage battery.
4. Drain your crank case more frequently in winter than in summer.
Every 500 miles is a good plan.
5. Easy starting, even in coldest
weather, will result froin the use of a
volatile gasoline, because of its low
boiling point. _
6. There are more than fifty parts
of your car that-need lubrication. Set
that they get it this winter.

Women to Sit on a Jury

sample of legislation passed by thr
Oliver Government giving power
. to women, is that providing that
women may be members of a jury

House thought it t.unwise. to per:

this wsy,it.is the aim. of the ad-
ministration to treat- raen.7.and
women voters alike. .;,. X- xy
One of the outstanding features
of the present session of the legislature is-the criticisms of opposition members of government policy
and the subsequent pricking of
these babbles. Recently Canon
Hinchliffe, of Victoria, objected to
the use of a- certain textbook on
hiBtory being used in the university, because the book was not considerate enough of Canadians who
had participated iu the war, Hon.
Dr. MacLean, minister of education, declared this was typical of
the unfairness of opposition members, who might be better occupied
in looking after the general interests of the province. The textbook was one of 67 used in the
university^ and the teaching of history was in the hands of Professor
Eastman, a Canadian by birth,
who had served overseas, aud two
assistant professors with enviable
war records. The text-book criticized was tbe best available for
the purpose of throwing light upon
certain phases of the European
war.

Montreal.���Automobile accidents
aro still continuing at railway crossings despite all the efforts of the
railways to prevent them. In one instance at Holland Centre, Ontario,
an automobile drove up and stopped
on the main line of the Canadian
Pacific Railway.' The driver thought
that an approaching train would
take another passing track.' The
driver, realizing his mistake, tried
to get his car out of the way of the
train. But his car was stalled. The
engineer was unablft to stop tho
train, with th* result that the automobile was smashed and three occupants of the car were injured.
At a-crossing on Aylmer Road,
near Hull, Quebec, an automobile ran
into a Canadian Pacific train. The
driver was going too fast to stop
his automobile when he saw ths
train. Two occupants of the automobile were injured.
��'-
A motor accident with all the
thrills of' a movie-stunt occurred, at
the corner of Yiing-e and Kin.',
streets, Toronto, when an automobile charged into one of the King
street windows of the Canadian Pacific Building, making a report that
sounded as though the gas tank had
exploded.
The car, according to the police,
was coming north on Yonge street.
The signals were against the car,
which in its flight grazed a Belt
Line car going east on King street.
It continued to swerve right across
the pavement into the plate glass
front of the imposing C. P. R. oil'ice
building. Here, with a loud backfire from the engine, the car suddenly plunged its front wheels
through the quarter-inch plate-glass
window. Being up against an immovable obstacle it naturally came
to a  standstill.
No one was hurt. The fende1" of
the car was badly smashed up, the
right front tire torn off and the
rear wheel badly damaged.* The
window was broken right across the
whole twelve feet or so, and lo a
height of about six feet in one point.
The driver admitted that he was
nervous at the time; he hadn't the
slightest idea of what -was happening.  . ,

New Liskeard.���The work of constructing the northerly extension of
the C. P. R. from Kipawa to D_:5
Quinze is progressing at a good rate,
and already the grading has been
completed on 35 miles of the extension, with 19 miles of rails having
been  laid. ���
The present contract, held by
Angus & Taylor.of North Bay, calls
for the construction, of- 70 miles of
-roadbed, tho northern end terminating in the vicinity of Des Quinze,
one of the greatest series of waterfalls   in  Northern   Canada.
This extension places the C. P. R.
on the southern outskirts of min--
eral lands of big prospective merit
in that part of the Province of Quebec lying adjacent to the gold-mining fields of Ontario. It is known
that the C. P. R. has also~carried

Moose .law.���The subway at the
Canadian Pacific Railway station is
about to be put into commission.
All six passenger tracks in the passenger terminal are completed, and
the first four tracks are in operation.-
The work of completing the subway is in full swing. The stairways
are in place and the -interior of the
subway is lined with the handsome
glazed  tile.
When the subway is put into commission the general public will not
be permitted on the station platform. The tickets will be inspected
at the doors leading from the waiting room to the subway. Passengers
alighting from trains will- descend
the stairs to the subway and then
pass up the stairs.into the depot.
The completion of the subway will
finish the building programme undertaken by the company "three
years ago.
Moose Jaw.���Out of a total of
44,817 cars of grain loaded at country elevators on the Canadian Pacific lines in the three prairie provinces-, between September 1 and
October 14, 25,500 cars were loaded,

The total quantity of grain shipped on the Canadian Pacific lines
up until October 14th, was 65,219,-
498 bushels, or an average of 1,455
bushels per car.
Some idea of the enormous increase in the quantity of grain
handled this year, up until October
14, as compared with the amount
handled in the same period in 1915

The Canadian Pacific Railway has
made special arrangements to meet
the ^ expected increase in traffic.
Trains carrying passengers will run
alongside the ships at St. John, KD,
thus guaranteeing a practically uninterrupted journey- from, any point in
Canada to the British port.. A feature of the trans-Atlantic hoiiday

Small Cards or Envelopes
to be Discouraged
It is desired thafc at the coming
Christmas season the public should
be urged to discontinue the use of
small cards and envelopes. There
is difficulty in the post office sorfca-
Jion and handling of small cards
and envelopes aud this unavoidably
causes.delay. Tho small size of
the cards or envelopes makes them
apt to fall out of bundles in which
they are tied, and there is the possibility of loss as a result'of. this.
As a result of the small size of the
cards or envelopes-; the "post office
cancellation mark frequently falls
on the address partially obliterating it with the possibility that'the
article may be mi&delivered or at
least delayed.
Responsibility" for loss, misde*
livery or delay as outli.ned above,
arising from the use of small cards
or envelopes, rests entirely with
the sender.
