Season's Greeti
Words of Good Cheer
I thank you for the opportunity you
have again afforded me of extending
Christmas Greetings to the people of
Greenwood District.
We are all watching tiie growth of
the interior of British Columbia. The
soundness of our present economic
���prosperity is happily based on the evergrowing number of mines added to the
shipping list.
- I wish you one and all a Happy
Christmas and a Prosperous New Year
and a full share of the prosperity in
store for our truly great Province.
.     R. RANDOLPH BRUCE,     .
Lieutenant-Governor of
British   Columbia.
Through the courtesy of the Editor
of the Greenwood Ledge, I should like
to give a Greeting to all its readers.
A Greeting which .will convey all the
good and time-honoured wishes, which
we are accustomed to associate with
the birthday of Christ, and with' the
beginning of a New Year.
A Greeting which this year is a so
much happier one, because of the hope
we all share that a measure of Prosperity seems to be likely to take the place
of the rather grim endurance of the
past few years.
Just at the outskirts of deserted
Phoenix stands that stone of Remembrance, in memory of those who went
and showed us what endurance meant.
You, honouring them, take your lesson
from them, you have endured through
times of hardness, and now the tide
showing signs of turning, you will, I
earnestly hope, benefit by new activities, bringing with them improved business conditions from which a healthy
prosperity may spring.
The passing year of''1928 has been
one calling for careful consideration of
prospects put forward by outside
interests which at the present time
have the earmarks of increased prosperity for the city if brought to successful culmination. ' -    ���
Your representatives have had at all
times the welfare and interess of the
Community first and foremost in their
difficult task' of discharging* the duties
pertaining to their office, join with all
good citizens in wishing for betterment
of private and municipal financial conditions during 1929 and the years ahead.
May this Christmas Season be no'less
happy 'than'the many'"bright ones'that
.have passed, and may the coming year
' be fuller, if possible, of the good things,
that make for real happiness and contentment.
" BEAVERDELL   1928-1929:
The closing year finds Beaverdell in
- aNparticular happy mood.   While there
have been no startling discoveries, and
some disappointments, the outlook is
the mining field,
Perhaps the outstanding feature of
the camp is the wonderful showing, of
the Bell Mine. Thirty car loads of
high-grade ore have gone out from this
property this year and there is every
indication that a great deal more will
be shipped the coming year. Like the
Immortal Brook, the Bell apparently
will "go on forever."
Adjoining the Bell to the North is the
Highland Lass, newly bonded by a
Kelowna Syndicate.under management
of A. J. Finch. The property, in an
early stage of development, with one
machine working, has already shipped
a car of high-grade ore and another
car will go out very shortly.
The Beaver mine, lying East of the
��� Bell, after several years of development,
is now in a fair way of becoming a
steady' shipper. Several good leads
have been crossed in drifting for the
Bell vein' and indications are all in
favor of finding Llie main Bell lead on
the present level.
The Sally, while not a heavy shipper
this year, owing to a lot of development work being done, is again working
in ore and the prospects of this large
group of claims, comprising as it does
by far the largest holdings on Wallace
Mountain, should be very bright for
many years to come.
'Coming down the hill we find the
Beaverdell Wellington now completing
a long program of development work,
which has carried them about 500 ft.
into the hill and weir below all other
workings. Should a continuous body
of ore be encountered at this'' depth,
it will prove a great boon to the life of
Beaverdell camp.
The coming year will no doubt see a
steady progress in the camp. The
nature of the rich mineral zone does
not lend itself favorable to very extensive operations and for this - reason,
Baverdell cannot hope to be a big town,
but from the present indications it will
be on the map for a long, long time.
Christmas time brings to us memories
of days of long ago, so let me tell you
of a Christmas - spent here nearly 40
years ago, though the time and place
may not be correct'the dinner is just as
we hungry young men found ifc.
Louis Eholt, a sturdy German, owned
at that time the Midway Flat and lived
in the old log cabin beside the crab
apple  tree,. ''
Eholt, as the custom then was, kept
open house and. we of the open trail
were always welcome at his well filled
table. On this Christmas day of 1889
Eholt had to take' a drive of steers up
to the Eholt Meadow now the home of
the Floyd Brothers.   .
Early morning* saw., us wend our way
up the Boundary Creek, past tlie
Midway Grave Yard on the Dewdney
trail as far as Boundary Falls. Spoke
to Roy the Frenchman at his ranch
and said a Merry Christmas to Mr.
McCarren at the end of the bunch
grass range. Then we were into the
solid timber on the left bank of Boundary Creek.
From Boundary Falls to Eholt the
timber was very thick with a'trail cut
througli the same first on one side of
*Lhe"'oreek*- and thim on- the other:'
Well; about 5 o'clock wo arrived at
the cabin on thc Meadow and there we
found Talamalka, a Mexican, who had
our Christmas dinner prepared according to the Mexican plan.
Now, I forget the name of this
famous dish but I can tell you how to
prepare it. You will dig a hole about
4 ft. deep in the ground and in thc
same you will keep a fire for 24 hours,
draw out the fire, fill the hole with
havc placed a steer's head, cleaned,
salted and peppered, a little more hay
on top then cover up with earth and
leave for 12 hours.
This was the feed as handed out
to us by Talamalka- as the great
Mexican dish. Of course .there were
potatoes, bread, coffee, etc., etc., and
may be something else that was common at banquets in the old days.
My recollection of this Mexican dish
was that it was very good, but it is
hard to say if.I could enjoy it the same
Now the good Christmas time has
come again when we celebrate the
Birth of Christ into Lhe world. If we
could- only follow his example and
teaching all this land would be-- peaceful and beautiful again.
Wishing you, yours and the Old
Timers and everybody a very Merry
Christmas and a Happy New Year.

The natal day of the Son of God is
again fast approaching with its message
of joy and goodwill. If there be one
thing that our tragic world needs more
than another it is a baptism of the
Christmas spirit.- We want everywhere
the soul of good cheer, that cases
strain, removes suspicion, and leads us
into the world of the child heart. It
is good once a year Lo feel Lhe heart
flow freely; it would be better if it did
so every day. Christmas is a great day
that all days may be filled with the
spirit of good-will.
Christinas, seems to strike a chord of
common humanity more human and
intimate than any other of the festivals of the year. The heart that turns
again home is always softened to
kindlier thought and deed.' When true
to home, the human heart becomes true
to the highest in man. A little child is
always leading men to their better
selves. The presence of a child conquers coldness, suspicion and world-
liness.   With   sure    instinct,   George
Elliott in one of her greatest books,
"Silas Marner", made the "touch of a
little child wean the old miser's heart
from the love of gold to the love of
man and God. <-* *    -
There came lo earth long ago a little
child ancl Lhe heavens rang with songs
of ���_ peace through goodwill ancl these
songs have been struggling to enter
men's hearts ever since. In celebrating
tho children's festival, those who fail to
catch Lhe child spirit of gladness and
abounding goodwill miss everything,
woifch while, but those who possess it
are*; eternally blessed.

Once more the Holy Season is witli
us, and the near approach of the New
Year becomes a reminder, gentle but
firm, Lhat we are steadily advancing
toward the end. May the Infant
Jesus, whose birth we are commemorating, bring peace and joy to the homes
and hearts of all the readers of The
Greenwood Ledge; and, with the passing of the years, may He bless them
still more by an ever-increasing FaiLh
The Christmas season is here once
again with all its fun and frolic, bringing with it memories of many former
Christmases, some full of joy, somc
laden with sorrow! But whether joy-
full or sad, the beautiful Festival of
Christmas cannot help but bring-
happiness to every one, who realizes
Lhe true meaning of it; that God, out
of His infinite pity for mankind condescended to allow His Son, His Little
Child, to be born into the world in the
little stable at Bethlehem for our sakes,
What is the true note Lhat ought Lo
echo in our hearts at this glad season?
Love, of course, love foi* God and lovc
for our fellow man, but more than that,
what love bring, i.e. contentment.
Christmas is the Children's Season, and
if we compare the happy lives of our
children, with the Child Life of Christ
liow much wc have Lobe thankful for,
So that at this season of rejoicing let
us bury all our troubles, forget all our
sorrows, and just try and bring happiness, love and contentment, not only
Lo our own hearts, but to the hearts of
all those around us.
Vicar of St. Jude's Church, Greenwood.
"Thanks bc unto God for His unspeakable Gift."���Cor. 9, 15.
Joy to the world���the Lord has come,
Let earth receive her King,
Let every heart prepare Hun room
And heaven and nature sing.
The greatest and noblest Gift ever
given to mankind, but the least accepted
and appreciated, is the one given by
God, himself.   "Unto you is born this
day a Savior, whicli is Christ the Lord.
O   the   mystery,   the   impenetrable
mystery of the gift.   We behold here
,no ordinary child, it's Deity in humanity, Divinity in infancy.   In this little
body is bound up God's immensity, in
the Babe's weakness is enclosed heavens
Thc Main Kettle River mining district, a secLion Lhat has been inactive
for over 25 years, is again coming to
the fore. The Mogul Mining Co. is
developing a group of 22 claims in the
Triple Lake district at the head of
Deer Creek. This group is owned by
Victoria'and Vancouver interests, and
the work on the group is in charge of
A. F. Thomas, well known in Greenwood. Mr. Thomas came West over 30
years ago and his first mining experience was in-Rossland in 1897.
Afc present work is being done on the
Mogul and Silver Dollar.   A drift was,
started from' the'bottom' of "'the' 50"'fo6t' *
shaft on the Mogul 'and at' 25 feet oh
the drift and exceedingly fine lead was
encountered.   On the Silver Dollar the
shaft is down 45 ft, in ore and a 30-ft. ,
drift shows an ore body 14 ft. wide.
The character of the ore is arsenical
pyrite  and  pyrorthite,  carrying  gold-
values running from $9 to $70 a ton.  .,
Work  commenced  on these  claims
in September and six men are employed-
The greatest need of the camp is a 41
mile wagon road to connect with main
road. The road in all probability will
be built at the earliest possible opening
of the season. All the supplies are
taken to the camp on pack horses and
with the completion of the road the
supplies can be handled in a much
more economical manner. ���
The group consists of Mogul, Silver
Dollar, Utopia, Mamie, Keystone Highland Mary, Coin,' Anchor, Rambler,
Champion, Denve.r, Seven-Thirty, Belcher, Lilly May, Mayflower, 4th of July,
Idaho, Muldoon, Massinger, Kingston,
Boston and Houston.
The following is taken from The
Boundary Creek Times of Saturday,
April 2nd, 1898:
Geo. F. Miller returned this week
from Deer creek on main Kettle river,
where he has been putting up cabins
on his pre-emption. On Canyon, Cedar
and Deer creeks, considerable develop-^
ment work is being done. The bond on
Lhe Silver Dollar, Canyon creek, was
not taken up, This is one of the best
showings in the Kettle river country.
The ledge is about 14 feet in width and
average assays run over $20. in gold to
the ton. Ed. Sullivan has a stopping
place for travellers on Cedar creek.
Quite a number of prospectors are going
into the district and up the West Fork.
The latest bulletin received in Greenwood is to the effect that King George
is out of danger and his tprogress of
recovery will be very slow.
"Unto you is born this day in the
City of David, a Savior." In that word
you have the key of Christmas and the
purpose of God's Christmas gift. "A
Accepting Him in the true faith we
have true Christmas joy and peace.

The .word "merry" has its root
meaning "Lo cut short" and goes back
to fche old English use of the word,
making the time short by filling ifc with
gladness and service. A day of gladness and service will be a brief one.
The happiest day is the shortest. Thai
is why Christmas Day is the shortest in
the year.
We do well to wish every one a
"Merry .Christmas"', for Christmaslide
is above all a season of glad giving. It
reminds us of the love of God who
gave His Son to the world as a little
Child tp become our Savior. It is
enough to fill every human heart with
joy just to know thai Lhe God who
made and governs all things loves mankind.
The chief feature Lhat makes
Christmas a season of joy is that it is
a home clay the centre of which is Lhe
child, And so Lhe children of Lhe same
family flock home after perhaps being
scattered for tlie rest of tlie year,
spending the fleeting hours recalling
old memories and exchanging confidences about one anothers' life' and
work. Thev day's happiness is enhanced
in remembering God's great gift to the
world in giving and exchanging gifts
and ministering to the needs and
enjoyment of those less fortunate than
As we greet one another with a
"Merry Christmas," therefore, we should
not lose sight of ils deeper meaning,
and in this spirit we most cordially
extend greetings to the great family of
our readers and friends.
Mrs. Briggs sat afc the window
looking out at the snow. Mrs. Fenn
sat at thc opposile window.
"Mrs. Fenn," said Mrs. Briggs, "did

Christmas, with its many traditions
and age-old ceremonies, brings some
rather interesting superstitions about
some of the the dishes we particularly
associate with its festivities.
Mince meat, with its pre-Norman
background, ��� especially seems inseparable from Christmas.
To refuse a piece of mince pie at
Christmas, according to superstition,
means that "bad luck" will attend one
during the year.
The apples in the pie portend health
and happiness. Each member of the
family should have a hand in the
making of the mince meat even if it's
no more than giving it a stir. He who
stirs shares in the good luck for the
household during the year.
When you are making up your
Christmas box for some one, why not
add an attractive jar of mince meat?
With its message of good luck, health
and happiness it embodies the very
spirit of Christmas.

Why, it just isn't Christmas,

"Merry Christmas, mother and dad!" came a well-

Sure enough, it was Tom,

'A Christmas-.-Bargain
By Marian Atwood, Midway, B.C.
Mr. Lawton was the proprietor of a
general store in a mining town amongst
the hills of British Columbia. JL was a
fairly prosperous business, but Lhal was
due mostly to a very capable assistant'
and   Mrs.   Lawton,   for   though - Mr.
ho assented.
Next morning Mr. Lawton greatly regretted being decoyed into making a
promise that would certainly cost a
largo somc of money besides taking
him away from his comfortable home
Lawton was not an energetic man Mrs. - to the discomforts of a strange hotel
Lawton was a very energetic woman.
In this mining town, where they resided, help of any kind was hard to
procure and as Mr. Lawton objected to
' any kind of work-where much exertion
was required Mrs. Lawton thought that
more than a fair division of labor fell
to her share.
Mr. Lawton was not an early riser���
in fact he had to be called several
times, at intervals of five minutes, before he rose at all, and often more
energetic measures were necessary Lo
induce him to don his clothes, eat his
breakfast and be able to attend to business, One of the most effective ones,
Mrs. Lawton discovered, was to let the
pancake fat burn on the range, then the
smoke and acrid smell that pervaded
the house made peaceful slumber in
restricted quarters an-impossibility, .
Punctuality was not a virtue of Mr.
Lawton's and dinner often waited and
"grew cold before he could be induced to
tear himself away from his newspaper
or the attractions of "Seven Up" in the
back parlor of the Silver Lead Hole!.
This also was a cause of friction between them.
When a neighbour's boy who earned
a small salary by doing some of their
chores, failed to turn up, Mrs. Lawton
was obliged to request her husband to
chop and bring in wood for the kitchen
fire. But, unfortunately, this usually
happened when business in the store
called urgently for his presence there
and considerable conversation took
place before he could be persuaded to
undertake the uncongenial task. One
evening, being in much haste to get
through it, he attacked the chopping
with so "much vigor that he sent a large
stick through a panel of lhe kitchen
door, and as the thermometer had just
dropped to zero, Mrs. Lawton was re-
'duced to tears before a carpenter
could be found to repair the damage.
Sunday was "Decoration Day" in Mr.
Lawton's calendar, as he always took
advantage of the Sabbath's immunity
from business to hang pictures in a
more favorable"light.or move bric-a-
brac from one shelf Lo another. This
resulted iri much noise and general untidiness, also in a constant demand for
..assistance from Mrs. Lawton, as her
husband's idea of working out his plans
was to stand on a ladder and.call for
everything he required to be placed in
his hands and unless she remained to
"steady the ladder* pictures "ahd china
were apt to meet with disaster���also
Mr. Lawton.
I do not think I have mentioned that
Mr. Lawton was quite good looking and
(when. not provoked too far) had
agreeable manners, so thUfc in reality
Mrs. Lawton was proud of owning him
and thought it quite, probable some
other women might envy her possession
of him.
Mrs. Lawton could not be considered
some legs���exhibited to the greatest
advantage by knee length skirts and
flesh colored silk stockings.
On the whole they were most satisfied with each other���or anyhow able
to put up with each other's individual
faults in the usual married fashion.
Mr. Lawton quite agreed with his
wife that she was probably much envied by other women for her possession
of; him, which she was aware of and
when she wanted anything very badly
often took advantage of his vanity lo
obtain her object.
, Her object on a certain occasion was
to be enabled to spend Christmas
among the amusements to be enjoyed
at that season in a large city like Vancouver and, incidentally, buy some new
���clothes made in the latest fashion.....
Now the Silver Lead back parlor, was
a favorite resort for its frequenters but,
as ladies were not admitted, the wives
of the married men usually admitted
it amongst their grievances when they
had any difference  of opinion  with
their husbands, .who were of Len obliged
to resort to all - kinds of excuses���or
even lies���to account for their long-
absence   after   business   hours.    And
sometimes they got away with it and
sometimes   they,   did   not���especially
with women as smart as Mrs. Lawton.
Mr.   Lawton's   business   had   been
thriving so well, under her management and that of their able assistant,
that his wife thought no bett-*r time
could be found to obtain the realization of ,her long cherished wish  to
spend Christmas in Vancouver, so. on
one of the occasions when Mr. Lawton
returned home afc an unusually . late
hour and in an unusually elated condition,- instead of meeting him with the
usual reproaches, she placed before him
an appetizing little supper and during
his enjoyment of this unexpected ve-Al
��� past related several complimentary re- .*"���
I marks that had been repeated to her
' on his looks and general deportment.
and then interjected, quite casually,
her wish to spend the coming Christmas
in Vancouver, because it would be such
a good opportunity, she exclaimed, to
, obtain some of the splendid bargains
advertised by the large firms at that
j season and she really must have a new
j carpet for the parlor, as'the present
, one had been in use for the past five
f years and was quite shabby now.
There was but one reply that, Mr.
[Lawton could make under such an unusual reception of a martial sinner, so
and hoped Mrs. Lawton would forget
hc had promised.
Mrs. Lawton had not.
On Lhe contrary she brought it up so
often with an added amendment each
time of tiie great benefits to be .derived
from such a trip that, three days before Christmas, he was glad- when thoy
boarded a train en route for Vancouver.
Now the last rembranfc of Mr. Lav/-'
ton's hopes concerning the pleasantness of this trip lay in the hope lhat
his wife would forget that she wanted
la new carpet for her parlor.
Mrs. Lawton did not.
-And his last hope vanished while
they were partaking of breakfast at
the hotel they stopped al when she remarked, quite casually, as ��� shc helped
him to his sixth hot waffle.
' "Is'nfc it nice to be in such charming
surroundings and to see those crowds
of people all hurrying along to get
their Christmas shopping done, as soon
as you have finished breakfast, dear,
we will go out and look i'or my parlor
I regret to record that Mr. Lawton
then lost.the last rembranfc of his temper and replied."
"Damn it, Alice, can't you give me a
little rest aboul that darned carpet
until Christmas is over, then if you are
still determined to have ifc wo will look
for one the day before we leave, so that
it can be, sent to the train for us tc
take home ourselves.. But I cannot see
why you want to throw away a lot of
money on such an unnecessary article,''
"You may consider it unnecessary
and probably ifc would be if you had not
persisted in smoking in the parlor and
throwing your cigarette ends oh the
""All right,'put the damage on _ me
but what about your having* ' Lhe
Women's Political Equality League
meet in there and throwing their calec
crumbs on the floor?"
��� "Ladies, with a, strong emphasis on
the noun, do not throw crumbs or any
other rubbish on the floor���Ihey know
how to behave themselves properly."
"And men don't, I suppose. Where
are those ladies who used to go bellowing
about the streets bf London, wrestling
with policemen and raising Cain gen-'
erally till they got what tliey wanted."
"Which" they generally" do, you may
observe. Anyhow I do not see wliat
these past events have to do with Lhe
present unpleasant - problem, which
means'are we to buy a carpet where we
can get a good one at a bargain or arc
wo not?" '   "
Mr. Lawton realized at last that fche
battle-is' always to the strong and told
her, if she would wait till Christmas was
over he would help her choose one. ^
The Lawtons had friends in the city
who showed them hospitality and accompanied them to theatres and other
places of- amusern^it!__io__.e.v_ery.tliing-
wenfc^'sino'otlily. until Christmas was
over. Then Mr. Lawton, who was
naturally suffering from dispepsia.
announced thai he felt all symptoms of
approaching "Flu" and meant to return
home next day, so if she slill wanted
that darned carpet, she must come at
once with him to choose one. "Though
mind", he added, "I will not pay any
big price for ifc. I know you would not
care what it'eost as long as you got the
"I think you are ' mistaken," shc
retarded, "for I feel convinced if we do
find one to suit us you will probably
pay a higher price for it than I should
care to do."
"Thai is easily lo bc put lo lhe test���
come on and look for one."
After visiting' several stores, Mrs
Lawton found a brusscls square in just
,the shade and size she wanted, but
when Mr. Lawton heard the price was
one hundred dollars, he exclaimed at
her extravagance in expecting him to
pay a sum for an article lhal was, in
the first placo unnecessary, and in the
next���he lold her, solto voice���he was
sure could be got for less with a tittle
judicious bargaining.
Mrs. Lawton refused to lend herself
aid to anything so unladylike, arid Mr.
Lawton remaining obdurate, she
walked away to another department,
remarking���also sofcto voice���that she
preferred leaving him so that he might
have an opportunity of displaying some
of lhe executive ability he was so fond
of boasting -about.
But' her husband's courage evaporated with her departure and, with a
muttered apology to the man who had
been showing them the carpet, he followed his wife as she visited the
various counters in the store.
Mrs Lawton often found silence the
best weapon with which tp persuade
her husband into* seeing "things from
her point of view so she maintained it
until after they had left lhe store and
were back in the hotel. There, she informed him she had a headache and
preferred lying down in her room tc
spending the afternoon in any more
of those tiring, profitless expeditions, so
Mr. Lawton was left to his own devices
for the rest of the day.
In the smoking room he met a friend
who offered to take him for a ride in
his car around Stanley Park, which he
accepted, so Mrs. Lawton was also left
to her own. devises for the rest of the
afternoon.-'7 But as this was what she
had manoeuvred for it suited', her very
well, and as soon as she was sure her
husband was safely off the promises,
put on her hat and made her way back
to the store wherein the brusscls square
she coveted still reposed.
"I havo decided to take lhal .square,"
slio informed tho proprietor, who now
attended her, "ancl will give you twenty
five dollars on account. My husband
will call for iUand pay tho rest of Lhe
price to-morrow morning,".
She liad reached the head of Lhe
stairs leading lo tho lower floor when,
retracing her steps, shc remarked
casually, "by the way, my husband
thinks I am buying a needlessly expensive carpel, so you will oblige me by not
mentioning the money I have given you,
mako out. a receipt for seventy Five
dollars when he comes"
"Very well, madam," said the gentleman she addressed, who was a married
man and so intimate with the intricate
puzzle of marital arrangements and the
vagaries of the female* mind.
Now Mr. Lawton had some pleasing
attributes as well- as provoking ones,
and as ho was really fond of his wife
ancl regretted when he had been the
cause of disappointing her in any way,
sundry qualms of compunction interfered with tho .perfect enjoyment of
Iiis ride. He pictured her lying down
alone in the hotel room suffering from
a nervous headache, brought on by
his unkindness concerning Lhat darned
carpel, and then and there made up his
mind to provide her with an agreeable
This picture, which his fond fancy
created of her altitude was as-we know
not a true one, but as it has been said,
"What the eye does not see -the heart
cannot grieve for" Mr. Lawton continued lo exult in his amiable intentions until his friend, by request, drew,
up al the portals of the place where he
meant lo pub Lliem into execution.
As ifc was nearly six o'clock the proprietor had left for his home, but a
clerk affably proceeded io exibifc the
desired wares and Mr. Lawlon picked
out the carpet which had taken his
wife's fancy and then inquired, diffidently, if it was possible to obtain any
reduction in the price. He was
informed that lhc establishment never
asked any other price than that they
intended to lake.
Now as the proprietor did not expect
the carpet lo be called for till Lhe next
morning, when he intended lo be on
hand himself, he had not mentioned to
any of his employees thc- arrangement
Mrs. Lawton ��� had made ��� with him in
connection with the purchase of that
particular article, consequently the
:lerk.named the price marked on Lhe
carpet.. Mr. Lawton paid a hundred
dollars, took a receipt and bore lhe
much coveted carpet to the hotel.
He found Mrs. Lawton, in Lhe parlor,
becomingly dressed in readiness for
dinner.   She received him languidly.
Mr. Lawton had not intended to tell
her of his'- abject capitulating to her
extravagance until they arrived home,
but, this coolness of demeanor completely
disarmed him and Mrs'. Lawton' soon
knew herself to be the possessor of her
much desired carpet.'"As she always
intended to be, the surprise was not
.That came a week later, when she
was brushing Mr. Lawton's best suit,
before putting it carefully away, and
for one hundred dollars.
Mrs. Lawton's mind had been con-
It won't he long now!
Greenwood Hockey Club's
siderably exercised as to the reason
why her husband had never mentioned
the large, reduction made in the price
at which he acquired the carpet,, as
being unaware of her secret dealings,
he would of course attribute it to his
superior ability in conducting the
matter and he was not in the habit of
hiding.his light under a bushel. But,
as we know, he had not acquired it at
any reduction and therefore hesitated
to confess he had failed in doing so.
Diplomacy is said lo be the art of
telling lhe truth with the intent to
deceive. If so, Mr, Lawlon had become
a skillfull diplomatist, for though all
his statements witli regard to the purchase of the carpet had been strictly
truthful they had left Mrs. Lawton
under the impression that-he had paid
less than a hundred dollars for it.
But lhe denoumcnl had come in this
lillie plot, for after she had read lhe
receipt she turned pale, as certain possibilities presented themselves lo her
"Dearie," she called out, here is the
receipt you have been searching for,
but surely you did not pay a hundred
dollars for that carpet?"
"As Lhe receipt says so," he replied,
"why should you doubt it? I saw you
had set your heart on the darned
thing so was determined you should
have it no mater what it cost."
"Well, I am glad you "feel that way
aboufc ifc. Ifc cost \ one hundred and
twenty five dollars, as I had already
paid twenty five dollars on account,
because you declared you would never
buyifc unless a reduction was made in
the price.
Mr. Lawton sunk down on the nearest
seat and held his head in his hands.
Presently, recovering himself, he made
-the statement," That there never could
be any" kind of fools as bad as a
"Except," retorded, Mrs. Lawton, with
spirit, "the men they make bigger
fools of."
