"Wonderful indeed is tfac power of
the voice.''���Cicero.
The power of the voice is the success of the telephone. It was in the
endeavor to transmit sound that the telephone was invented, and the great
factor of its development into an article of very common use is that direct
conversation may be carried on.
Because it enables one's personality to be sent is the reason that the
telephone promotes friendships and intimacy, and brings about closer relations between those in business. The pleasure of hearing the voice yen
kflow makes long distances the casual practice of every one. ^

these parties to pass away the

the benefits^ to^be derived from
these gatherings,; the principal
objection is that they are held oh
Saturday night There are sev^
era! obvious reasons why this
objection .is, upheld by the community at large and which'easily
can* be conjectured. It is said
that Saturday night is the farm-.

Canadians who go to Southern California in search of a warm climate and
an easy living are aj.it to be disappointed on both accounts, according to W. (Italy, says:

seful Hints On   .
Extracting* Honey
Likely to Ferment if Taken From Hive
Before Fully Ripe
Money should not 1>��' rrmovvd from
ilie hive until it is ripe, otherwise it
is likely to ferment in a short time.
Tho combs should bo. at least two-
thirds capped before tin.' honey is extra c ted.
When the time comes to extract, tlio
bees may be cleared from the supers
by using bee-scapo boards fitted with
bee-escapes. The woodwiro board
fitted with two escapes is a rapid
super clearer. The board can be
easily put in place beneath the supers
and if done��in the evening the supers
will usually be cleared of bees by the
following morning-. Before putting
on the escapes see that thc springs
are spaced properly to allow the bees
free passage through thorn, but not
wide enough to allow them to return.
If bee escapes aro not available the
bees can be shaken or brushed from
the combs, but this excites the bees
too much.
As soon as Lhe supers are removed
from the hives they should be taken
to the honey house, which, must be
bee proof, as the odor ol! the honey
will attract tlio bees and likely start
tliem robbing. All uncapped combs
can later be returned to the bees to
be filled and capped.
Honey can bo extracted more readily if done whilo it is still warm from
the   hives.     Before    extracting   tho
honey must bo uncapped.     A steam
heated knife is  best  suited  for this
purpose.      Keep  the uncapped, knife
sharp, warm' andfclean so" a.f-not to
tear the combs.-     A:s some-.honey will

years, but is coming lnjck to Canada
io stay as soon as he has disposed of
property he holds thero. Further, lie
advises other residents, of Canada who'
are already hero, to remain.
.Southern California has had a great
boom, "Mr. Hammond said, "but the
crest is passed." Thc tremendous influx of new residents from the east
has kepi things going for the last two
years. All bring money with them,
so, in a way, the boom majobe said to
be living on Itself. llut, obviously,
this condition of affairs cannot last
long. Already. Los Angeles bankers
afe tightening up ou building loans,
and there i.s a consequent falling oil'
in employment for carpenters and general workmen.- Hundreds of retired
easterners aro ready to take ollice
positions just to keep busy, so that
J salaries for such work aro uniformly
low. The oil situation is suffering
j from over production, and thousands
j of men are being laid off. 'The movie
Industry is cutting expenses to tho
bone. Prosperity is still abundant oi\_
the surface, but tlio reaction is certain to come short Is*.
"fn Canada the depression lies, behind, Instead of ahead. There have
l.��*en somc hard times, but they cannot last much longer. To the Canadian with a few thousand dollars,
who is leaving a job here and going
to Southern California, I would say,
'Don't do it,' and there are a "lot of
other Canadians around Los Angeles
right now who would give him the
same advice."
and the guardg, conductor,
engineer, fireman would descend and
hold "converse with the idle straggling
population. Then we would move ou
for a few miles and stop perhaps to
let a freight train pass.
" 'Yes,' a guard would cheerfully respond to ms* anxious question. 'We
are accumulating a ritardo.'
"Accumulating a ritardo is the best,
indeed, the only thing an Italian train
can do well. It does it easily without effort, with genius, like a virtuoso.
It was ou this journey that Gruger,
whose intellect at times astounded me,
his warm admirer, uttered the .brilliant suggestion that If-, only one of
these trains accumulated ritardo to
the extent of twenty-four hours it
might be on time���the next day. So
penetrating was this observation that
a day or two later I offered it to a

Simple Means of Prevention Can Be
Easily Followed
The following rules, if observed, will
greatly help in the prevention of fires:
Do not store rubbish in the attic.
Burn old papers and broken furniture
in the furnace.
A spark from the��furnaco will ignite
ans* rubbish or scattered kindling in
the basement and may cause a serious fire. ,
A spark from the chimney lodging
in the rubbish in the yard will cause
a fire.
All stoves should have at' least 5-
inch clearance between the bottom of
the stove and the floor, and the floor
protected with metal.   ���
Stove pipes must, be kept at least
10 inches from all woodwork, other-,,
wise the woodwork must 'be protected'
with asbestos covered on top with
metal���if this Is not done the red hot
stove, pipe will-ignite thc woodwork.
Do not keep your-ashes in wooden

Missionary Says Difficulties Not As
Great-As Generally Supposed
A young woman missionary who
lias studied Chinese, becoming able in
a year to talk and to understand quite
a little of the language, declares that
the difficulties aro -not nearly as great
as has been supposed, that people of.
ordinary intelligence can learn, it
without undue effort and that it is
really "lots of fun."
"The memory of my first day in
school is still fresh in my mind,"
says'Tiolot Hughes, . Chinese missionary of the Episcopal Church ot
the United Stales, -"though I have
now completed my year there. New
missionaries >in the district of Hankow usually are seni; to the Peking
Language School, and I arrived in
Peking the night before the school
opened, very proud of having accomplished the thirty-six-hour journey
from Hankow alone. I was taken In
the morning to the school bs* Deaconess Clark, feeling exactly as I must
have as a little girl by my mother.
"We entered a large room ancl sat
down with about slxts* others, all wondering, I suppose, as I was, what was
going to happen and how they would
go about teaching us the language of
which we had heard such dreadful
tales. Whatever ideas wo may, have
had about school work were rudely
shattered by the announcement that
notebooks were positively forbidden;
that we must remember what we could
and let the rest. go. Then the firjjt
lesson began.
"A Chinese teacher mounted the
platform and pointed in turn to
himself, to us and to another teacher,
slowing declaiming: wo, ni, ta. He
did this frequently until nearly all of
us had grasped that the three words
meant respectively: I, you, he. A
few*, however, we learned later, had
gathered that wo meant nose, because
of the Chinese custom of indicating
the first person bs* pointing to the
nose, rather than to the chest... ..The
names of a few simple objects such
as book, paper, pencil, then were introduced objectively, .and before we
knew it the period had come to an
end.
"Quito early, in the term, we commenced committing to nieinoiy, sentence by sentence, a thrilling story of
an old woman in Shausi whoso only
son was eaten by a tiger," and who,
according to the district magistrate,
was iiwarded thc tiger as a means of
support. The story made in thirty-
eight instalments extended over jsey:
cral months, so that we were kept iri
that'sort of eager anticipation with
.which one reads a- serial story in a.
magazine. Just'about that, time we
commenced telling stories in class and
we were..surprised to find that we
could tell' nearly, any story with .very
little use" of the dictionary. ' "'-Xy'" ���'-'���

Ho*\v about those Christmas
presents you are going to Bead to
your friends by mail? Nearly
ready? Be sure to mail them -in
good time, for when the post office
gets choked up with ^nail the last
few days before Christmas, there
just has to be delay to some of the
parcels, ancl yours may be among
tho unlucky ones. So we hope
you v/ill get them into the' mail as
early as possible, and, if yon like,
mark on the outside "Don't open
until Christmas!'' Even supposing
your friends do open them too
soon, you know, those first Christmas parcels one receives have a
special flavour, particularly if one
has to pass over a "Don't open
until Christmas" warning in order
to get into them.
And be sure  to  pack  and wrap

Every turn of the cards in the
Legislature on the part of the
opposition appears to be made for
campaign purposes. The latest
move'of Mr. Bowser and hia followers is to refuse to have anything to do with consideration of
the Redistribution Bill when it
comes below the select committee.
Premier Oliver declares this to be
a deliberate attempt to block the
fullest and fairest consideration of
an important measure, directly
affecting the welfare of the whole
province,.and says it will be difficult to secure the opinions of all
parties unless the committee is
non-partisan. However, the bill
will go before the committee, the
Premier maintaining that every
effort will be made to divide the
province so that the fairest representation will be given every district.

Kaslo will become part of Slocan,

Higher . civilization has not killed the Spirit of Adventure. It may
even be, that people now-a-daysare affected more by Wanderlust
than they ever were, and enhanced facilities for travel with a greater
degree of safety have stimulated, and not a little, the desire to see other
than their immediate environs. In the old days when- Columbus, Vespucci,
Balboa, De Soto and Drake, Cartier and CHamplain, and other bold
mariners sailed into the unknown and its perils on the seven Seas, much
courage was needed but today the World is every-man's oyster, nor does
,it have to be opened with a sword. With a little time and comparatively
little money, one can see the places where history was made, far ofl countries
and strange people,   and live the while, in   comfort.
Four hundred years ago, the first vessel to sail round'the world lifted
anchor at Seville, and after three years of adventurous hardship, returned
to her Spanish port. Only thirty-one of the two hundred and seventy
who set out came back, and only the Vittoria out of the original
A.rmada of five sailing ships. The spirit of these seafarers is illustrated by
the vow of Fernando Magellan their commander, .as he set out from Tierra
del Fuego across the Great South Sea, that he would push on if he had
to eat the leather of the riggin'. Magellan himself was killed in the Phillip-
pines, but as he had already reached that longitude on a previous
voyage eastward from Spain, he is rightly credited with being the first to
circumnavigate the globe.
-Sixty years, after the Vittoria set out cfrom Seville, Francis Drake
with a fleet of five sailing ships and 164 men sailed from Plymouth in The
Golden Hind, and after a voyage round the world of almost three years,
returned jyith a rich loot of silver and gold, silk, pearls and precious stones, to
replenish the coffers of Queen Elizabeth. The Golden Hind was the only
vessel of the five to complete the, voyage and it became the favourite resort
of tourists on the Thames in the days of Shakespeare.

tons, whereas the Empress of Canada, which sets put on a Round tht-
World Cruise from New York on January 30th, 1924, registers no less than
21,500 tons. Instead of three, years of privation and hardship, the voyage
will occupy four months of luxurious comfort The route will be shorter, a*
instead of rounding the Cape of Good Hope the route taken is through Lho
Suez Canal, and instead of traversing the stormy Straits of Magellan.,
the American continent is. Anally-crossed on the excellent road-bed of the-
Canadian Pacific Railway. But many of the points touched by Sir Franci=
Drake and Magellan will be visited by the Empress of Canada, for instance
Batavia, Sourbaya and the traverse of the Celebes Sea to the Phillipine?
The circumnavigators on the Empress of Canada will return laden with
the rich experiences arid mental treasures gathered from visions of
eighteen different countries, and contact with the costumes crafts and
civilizations of fifty different races.
Encouraged by successes of former years, the Canadian Pacific has
arranged for four cruisers in addition to the Round the World voyage
of the Empress of Canada. The Empress of Scotlan.d will visit the cradle
of civilization in a trip Round the- Mediterranean, sailing.,from New-
York on January 14th. The superb Empress of Britain will make two
cruises Round the West Indies, leaving New York on January 22nd and
February 23rd, and, before setting off round the world, the' Empress ol
Canada will travel Round America, sailing from Vancouver on January .
-lth, visiting the Pacific coast, California, and going via the Panama
Canal and Cuba to New York. This vessel will be commanded by Captain '
S. Robinson R. N. R. who figured so conspicuously in the relief work
which followed the recent Japanese disaster.
Captain S. Robinson, R.N.R., the
hero of the Japanese disaster, who
commanded the Empress of Australia when' that ship' was in Yokohama harbor at the time . of. the
"earthquake, has been fittingly honored by""the Canadian Pacific Railway. He is to command the company's steamship, the- Empress of
