A $25,000 FIRE.
One of the most costly and serious
fire in the   history ofvGreenwood
occurred at one o'clock ohtMonday
morning   when    the    Wholesale
Liquor  store,   owned   by   James
McCreath was gutted.   The loss is
estimated at $35,000 with 816,000
insurance.    Two alarms were sent
in almost simultaneously,  one  by
Mrs. McCutcheon and the other by
Chas. Blank, and tho firemen   responded quickly to the call.     It
was a stubborn aud wicked fire to
fight, there being so many  angles
in the building that it was almost
impossible to get at its souree, and
for over   four  hours the  firemen
fought the fierce flames until they
got the fire under control.    Three
streams were kept on the raging
flames and for awhile it looked as
though,the fire was gaining,  but
finally with the indomnitable spirit
of the fire fighters along with  the
assistance of many willing citizens,
the     fire     was     subdued     but
not    before     the    building   was
gutted.     The   Wholesale   Liquor
Co's   store   was   built, about ten
years ago and was one one of the
best and   nicest   buildings in the
city and the damage is a great loss
to the community as well as tlie
owner.     Besides  the   store and
oflice,   there   were   the    bottling
works, ��� ware-rooms   and  government bond rooms.   The origin  of
the fire is unknown.

Skating is an exhilarating
sport. . The fresh cool air and
the strenuous exercise cause the
blood to glow and to flow through
every part of the human body. It
is a sport so foreign to temptation and so beneficial to health,
that no one should regard himself too old to engage in it. It
keeps the limbs nimble, the lungs
purified and the mind keen and
clear as the invigorating air. Let
each man, woman and child learn
the art, even If your dignity does
take a tumble.

Some people seem to be obliged
to talk about'others. That seems
to be their only subject of interest on which to spend an hour in
neighborly conversation. Soon

would advise gosbipers to mind
their own business. Gossips have
very little judgment aud common

Have you ever noticed the look

suppose that it must all be true,
because we know how smirky we
feel when we get a new subscri-.

The firemen held their annual

while the Tom and Jerry was
superior to anything yet made.

the hope of help is gradually being
narrowed to reUaneejipon-ftegen-
erosityof those, who-live, in the
North American continent to supply the actnal  necessities  of the
seven million people remaining in
Belginm.       Reliable    authorities
estimate tea. eighty thousand tons
of foodstuffs a month will   be  required   thronghoufc    the   winter.
Thus far Canada  has sent about
six-thousand tons in two ships.' I
have    asked    the  admiralty  for
another collier that we may send
at least expense further [goods to
plleviate this' great distress.* The
Belgian Relief_eommifeteV-at Halifax will continue to   forward sup-
plies shipped ^through  this  port.
I feel that Canadians generally desire to share more largely  in this
work and am   respectfully asking
premiers   of  other provinces    to
make these efforts nation wide.   A
number of  Canadian   newspapers
Have  offered hearty  co-operation

the assistance of your  press  towards this end. appointing central
committees if not already in exis-
fcense.   T think that through nni-
ted Canadian  action  we  can do.
splendid work along lines to great
advantage of the  Empire  and at
the same time something that will
help those who, as you know, have
made an  enormous  and pathetic
sacrifice that can hardly be estimated.   I believe all Canadians are   '
ready to offer some sacrifice for the
Belgians, who,  according to reliable  reports,   are  homeless   and
starving,"

Delight and pathos are inextricably mingled with the thought of
New Year's day. It is only a conventional point of time; any other
would do as well. Every day
closes an old year and begins a
new one, but for all we cannot help
feoliug that this day which is
agreed upon throughout Christendom for the beginning of a new
year, is somehow unique. The
pathos comes from a review of the
past, and from the sense that
another notch has been cut for us
on the stick of time.
