The Spirit of Christmas
"Except ye become as little
children'' is fraught with precious
meaning. The knighthood of innocence is above all earthly dignities.
The crown^it wears brings no earthly anguish, entails no fear. Oiear-
eyed and cleanrhearted, the little
children of the world stand on the
heights nearest heaven. The condensation that brings older persona
on the same plane with them is no
condensation at all, but rather a
coming back to one's own best
estate. Of all the days of the year
Christmas is the best to "turn back

day marks.the anniversary of the
birth of the Prince  of babes,   the
great lover of little children.   So,
let every parent let go of care for
one day and go to the little folk,
enter into their sports and claim an
interest in their affairs. ���, Let the
store and the office, the court room
and the counting room run   themselves,  or rather not  ran at all.
Christmas is eminently children's
day.   From the gray of early dawn
to the  latest  hour  at night,, let
everything give way to   the little
autoorate whose tyranny is courted
by every man and woman who haB
any of the essence of love in his
breast.     Romp  and tumble and
shoot with them.   When [another
Christmas comes, some of the them
may not be here, and those that
are will by one year be that much
further from the royalty that doth
so fittingly become  them.   Xmas
is for the children���let everything
bend to their, en joy ment.-

works of the great English poets, dramatists, essayists and authors
have been translated,
Thc development of a high standard in literature is an indication of thc development of a high standard in national life. A nation's aspirations and its spirit finds expression -through its poets and
writers, AU history reveals this truth. Equally so, thc rising of a
strong- and true national spirit finds its reflection in the works of its
States when gold was discovered, or
of the liomebuilding craze that
seized the suburban centres of that
country a decade ago.

made, in Canada. Thc number of Canadians who boast of a library ior lae first time.assuming the propor-
of thijir own, even a very humble and small one, is limited.-: P.lit turns, importance and dignity of a
why-should not. every Canadian family establish the nucleus .of a
library'by buying one or more books by Canadian authors before
this old year ends and adding to them month by month in the vears
to come? And what better Christmas gift can a -Canadian'make'to
a.' fellow Canadian than to present him or her with a book bv a
Canadian.author? ��� ��� "
The "Made in Canada" slogan can be overdone, and its use
twisted to give seeming support to policies or articles of an inferior-
and undeserving character.. Merely because an article is made'in
Canada is not a sufficient reason why Canadians should buy'it hi-
preference to other articles. It must have merit and it must be-as
rca.son8.blc in price as similar articles made elsewhere. But granted, that it- has equal merit and is reasonable in'price, the Canadian-
made article should command thc support of Canadi-n-ic    ���    ���-      ' '

Egypt Refused British - Terras
NationaMst-s Want to Get Control of
the Soudan
Announcement is made that the
.Kgyptian Nationalists have, refused
the terms of aulomony offered by
Britain, partly because Britain desired a right to maintain troops to
protect the Sue-; Can,'!], and partly because the Egyptians desired control
of the Soudan, aud v.ere not getting it.
The second.point is illustrative of
the difficulties which are causing bitterness and bloodshed "in many parts
of thc world. ,
Tlie Egyptian Nationalists are
claiming the independence of. Egypt
on tho basis of "self-determination'."
They are, ���' offered it.- And they
promptly want more. They want to
''determine" somebody else. The
Soudan was not conquered by the
Egyptians?; ' the Soudanese are not
Egyptians,'nor even.kin to the Egyp-
tion breed; but the Egyptians want
to rule them.
A similar sort of thing ...is going on
over much of Europe and Asia, and
is being argued wiih bloodshed. The
philosopher was not far wrong who
remarked recently that the idea of
"self-determination" was the biggest
present curse of the world.���From the-'

Origin Of Boot Heels
Persians Used Them to Keep Feet Off
Boot heels are of Persian origin and
were originally attached to sandals in
order, that the wearers might keep
their feet above burning- sands. Heels
nine inches high have been known.
When high heels were- introduced in
Venice they were called "chapineys,"
and were highly decorated, The
height of the "chapineys" proclaimed
the rank.-of the wearer.

Only In Rare Cases Does Backache
Mean Kidney Trouble
Every muscle in the body needs
constantly a supply of rich, red blood
in proportion to - the ^work it does.
The muscles of tlie back are under a
heavy strain and have but little:, rest.
When tlie blood is thin they lack
nourishment, and the result is a sensation of pain in those muscles, Some
people think pain in the back means
kidney trouble, but-the. best medical
authorities agree that backache seldom or, never has anything to-do
with the kidneys. . Organic kidney
disease may have progressed to a critical point without developing a pain
in the back. This being the case,
pain in the back should always lead
the sufferer to look to the condition
of his blood. It will be found in
most cases that the use of Dr. Williams': Pink Pills to build up the blood
will stop the sensation of pain in the
ill-nourished muscles of the back.
How much better it is to try Dr; Williams' Pink Pills for the blood than to
give way to unreasonable alarm about
your kidneys. If you suspect your
kidneys, any doctor can make tests in
ten minutes that will set your fears
at rest, or tell you the worst. But
in any event' to be perfectly healthy
you must keep the blood in good condition, and for this purpose no other
medicine can equal Dr. Williams' Pink
You can set these pills through any
dealer in medicine, or by mall_at 50
cents -a box or six boxes for $2.50 from

To insure tho family- an "especially,
good pie many housewives are thinking of making holiday pies at home
this year. The beginner in the art of
pie making should stick to plain pie
crust. Puff paste is rather difficult to
make for the busy-woman.
Good pie crusts requires a pastry
flour. - The average bread flour
does not make up into good pie
crust because it is rich in gluten.
Gluten is both desirable and necessary
in bread, but it is undesirable in pie
For plain pastry sift a cup and a
half of flour with one-fourth teaspoonful of salt and one-fourth teaspoonful
of baking powder into a wooden chop-
[ping bowel. Flour the blade of a
chopping knife and chop one-third of
a cup of shortening���this may be lard,
[butter, beef fat, or any of the vego-,
table fats or oils for sale under various trade names���into the flour until
the wholo mass looks like line meal.
With a case knife or spatula, add ice
water, a little at a time to the flour
mixture until a rather dry paste is
Turn out on a board that has been
dusted with flour and roll out lightly
into a triangular shape with a well-
floured rolling pin. Handle lightly.
Fold and roll lightly into the desired
shape.' *'.'/'
There are many recipes for
mince meat, but most of them are expensive. The following is moderate
in cost and highly satisfactory:
Cook about two and a half pounds
of round flank or shoulder of beef in
one and a half quarts of water" till
tender, saving the liquor. --Chop or
grind the meat very fine, being careful to remove all gristle and-if the
meat is very fat less suet may be used.
To the meat add one pound of finely
chopped suet with all membrane removed. Then add the following:
Three pounds of raisins, stoned and
cleaned, three pounds of currants, two
and a half pounds of brown sugar, one
,nd one-third cups molasses, three-
quarts of chopped apple's, one quart of
meat liquor, two level teaspoonfuls of
salt, three level teaspoonfuls of cinnamon, two level teaspoonfuls. of
ground mace, two level teaspoonfuls
of- powdered cloves,' the grated'- rind
and juice of four lemons, one small
piece of citron finely shredded.
Cook .slowly until tho fruit is
very tender. When done add one
quart of sweet cider.. Store in
stone jars in a cool place.' .If-not
sufficiently moist just before using it
in tho pie, add a little more elder.
|. -.For a pumpkin pic, enough-toi-serve
about six people, have-one and a half
cups of "pumpkin pulp, to this add two-
thirds of a cup of brown "sugar,, one
level teaspoon of cinnamon and half a
teaspoonful of ginger, half-a teaspoonful. of salt, two beaten eggs, one and'a
half- cups of milk and a half cup .of
cream, - Mix well. together and pour
into a pie plate lined-with plain paste.
Do notuse'an upper crust.- ,
.-Bake in a moderate oven until tho
custard is,'set and the,crust brown.
The oven .must not be allowed to get
too. hot, as this will "give the custard
a curdled appearance. ' ' -,.. . , . V
���' Squash pie or" "sweet" potato.pie may
be made .from' the same'recipe, substituting for the. pumpkin pulp. -Even

Must Deal With Railway Situation
In the view of Sir Vincent Meredith, 7
the way to sustained improvement in-
trade is riot yet clear, but that im-7
provement will be hastened.when lab-'
or realizes that war inflated wages 7
cannot continue, and that more eflJ-.
ciency and greater production are ab-'
solutely necessary in order to bring ;���
i prices down to a level that will stlmu- .
late consumption aud thus provide increased employment. His warning aa "���
to the evil effects of heavy taxation in
stifling industry and enterprise is one
that will be cordially endorsed by all
thinking men, and one which those
who direct our public affairs surely
will not dare to ignore. And Sir Vincent merits public thanks for the courageous way in which ho dealt with tho
railway problem; in-particular for his
uncompromising declaration that no
marked improvement can be expected
in the present burdensome conditions
so long as the roads continue under
public���which, as he said, means poli- *
itical���ownership and operation.   Both
Great Britain and the United  States
I have realized the financial, chaos in-.,
{separable ,from   such ownership arid ���
operation, and have adopted the only
remedy.   Let us hope that Canada will.'
profit    by    their example before the
country is plunged still deeper into
' -.'Retail Forces'Out'Of-Line
Sir Frederick Williams-Taylor undoubtedly placed his finger on one of
the ��� weak- spots in our present trade
condition when he said that while tin
the one hand the purchasing power of
thc products of our natural resources
was at the lowest level reached for
several, years past, in other directions
we still had high prices, and retail
prices were conspicuously out of line.
It is on the purchasing power of the
products of our natural resources-that
avc must place our main dependence,
for a revival in trade, and it is obvious
that there can bo no sustained improvement until'.the. price of other
commodities are commensurate with .
that purchasing power.
Summed up, the most obvious needs
of Canada at the present time, in the
opinion of these two eminent finari-
ciei's, are drastic economy Gin the conduct of public affairs/a solution of the
railway problem on the basis of private as 'against political ownership and
operation, a vigorous immigration policy for the peopling of our waste
spaces .by diverting to-Canada the '
stream of immigrants that formerly
flowed elsewhere, and deflation.in the -,.
cost of labo7r.

Industrial Survey
Of Alberta Ordered
Will Assist In Creating New Markets
For Province
- An industrial survey of the province
has been.ordered by the Alberta Government. It Is to be made by Howard
Stutchbury, provincial trade commissioner, who has already commenced
work on the collection of information
and statistics necessary for the purpose. The Idea will be to make a
thorough invesigation into the industrial situation in Alberta, taking into
account the number and kind of industries whether or not they are
working on full time, and' if not why
not. The survey will also assist in
the widening of markets for Alberta
products and creation of new ones,
and the information now being secured will be used to that end.     It is

II. Herod Seeking to Kill Lhe King (vv.
The news brought by the Wise Men
struck terror to Herod's heart. He
was not alone in this, for all Jeru-'
salem was troubled with him. The
news ought to have brought joy. A
glimpse at the social customs in and
about Jerusalem at that day will enable us to understand why this news
brought uneasiness to the people.
They were living in the greatest luxury. Fine dresses, sumptuous feasts,
flntvhouses, etc., led to gross immoralities. They did not want a Savior,
who could save them from their sins���
they wanted to continue in them.
Herod, demanded of the priests and
scribes information as to where Christ
should be born. They soon were able
to tell him. These people had a technical knowledge of the Scriptures, but
had no heart for the Savior set forth
therein. They had no disposition to
seek Him. This all occurred in Jerusalem, the city of the King���the place
of all places where He should have
been., welcomed. It seems where the
greatest privileges' are, there is the
greatest indifferenc shown as to
spiritual matters.
III. The King Found (vv. 9-1S).
The Wise Men having obtained the
desired information' started, immediately to find the King. As soon as
they" left the city, the star which had
guided them "from the' East appeared
again .to lead thenl.'on'^ Npt that it
had disappeared front the sky, but the
dwellings of.the.city, no.doubt, shut
out the sight of it. Oftentimes .'our

Increase In Herd Testing
Greater Interest Being Shown Than In
Former Years
The dairy and cold storage branch"
of the Dominion Department of Agrf.
culture reports a great increase in the
number of herds and cows under test
this year. Last year the increase
was marked, especially in the province of Quebec, where upwards of a
hundred per cent, more testing work
was performed In 1920 than in 1919.
The total number of herds tested In.
the nine provinces In .1920 was 3.84T
against 2,418 in 1919, and of cows 33,-
382 against 22,517. The increase last
year was due chiefly to Quebec and to
Ontario and Nova Scotia in a lesser,
degree. The last named province
shows an increase of 165 herds com*
pared with 29 in Ontario.

We wish every pne of our readers the happiest sort of a happy
Christmas, feeling sure fchey mean
to do their very beet to make it so
for everybody; and because we give
we get, you know, that means happiness for us all. Please bear in
mind, however, that the -'giving"
referred to is not related in the
slightest degree to the. exchanging
���-of .gifts', more or less expensive, or
the principle expressed by the "I-
yive-you-and-you- give-me" idea.
We should find our greatest pleasure in making sure that this wonderful Birthday carries all possible
cheer and gladness into the heart
of everyone we know.
There is one thing we can
all give, and be enriched by the
gi7ing. A smiling good morning-
the greeting hearty, the smile genuine and sunshiny���means more
than we can even guess to one who
is in the clutches of the doldrums,
whether from real or ��� fancied
cause. If you, have a Jittle diffi-

Christmas morning ie ��� just' the
t-ime to clear it away by . meeting
, him���or her-���with a good wish
and outstretched band.
We hear a great deal these times about the ideal happy
home, and men are not scarce who expect all the requisites for a happy home to come from one side of the house.
A woman mav do her level best to make life and home
happy for her husband and-children, but if she is treated
as a slave, and only given her board aud clothing in payment for her services as mother, wife, cook, laundress,
nitrse girl, chambermaid,-and seamstress, is it any wonder
that little or no happiness exists in that home? If a
mother spoils her son by pampering and waiting on him
all the years of his childhood and boyhood, and making
him think that a man should always be waited on by a
woman of his household. Is it strange that he expects to
do the same, and that, in all likelihood, she either wears
out in a few years from such service or else becomes bitter
or disheartened. We are often told that in eyery true
and ideal marriage both husband and wife must learn to
bear and forbear. In every home where happiness exists,
there must be perfect trust, confidence and love between
husband and wife. There are two kinds of sunshine in
the world, and both quite necessary���the one which is
caused by the sun's shining out door, and the other by
shining in our hearts. It is the /loving deeds, the cheery
hopeful words and the kindly thoughtfulness that each
member of the family shows towards the others that
makes an ideal, happy home���a perfect heaven on earth.
