A Splendid Smoker
A smoker and reception was
given to the Hon. J. D. MacLean,
Monday evening by some of his
many friends in the district. The
gathering was non-political, and
was. for the purpose of congratulating the Dr. on being selected by
tbe Premier of the Province to the
office of Provincial Secretary and
Minister of Education, one of the
most important of the Cabinet
positions.
Several visitors came from neighboring towns and^ridings to join in
the congratulations and festivities.
Letters of regret at inability to attend which had been received by the
committee, were read by the chairman at the beginning of tbe proceedings, these had been received
from L. A. Campbell, Rossland;
John R. Jackson, Midway; E. S.
H. Winn, Rossland; R. S. Conklin,
Penticton. Werner's orchestra
from Grand Forks provided the
music. An excellent program of
speeches, toasts, songs and recitations was arranged bythe committee, and greatly enjoyed by those
attending. The speeches were
short and pithy and were delivered
by the following gentlemen, noted
for their versati'e and pleasing
gifts of oratory:
Judge Brown, J. E. Thompson,
M.P.P.; W.D. Wilson, M.P.P.,
Rossland; Mayor Acres of Grand
Forks; Mayor Matheson, Phoenix;
Hon. J. D. MacLean; A. M.
Johnson, Nelson; Arthur Rendell.
and Macpherson.
The last toast of the evening
was "To The Ladies" and owing
to the fact that great rivalry had
developed amongst several of the
bachelors of long residence in the
district as to who had the right
and should have the honor of replying to this pleasing toast, the
committee had to delegate the
honor to a married man, and to
the delight of the audience, Mr. D.
Macpherson proved himself a
whale amongst the ladieB.
J. L. White was chairman and
though it took fonr'hours to reach
the end of the program, he found
his duties light compared to what
they might have been, had he nofe
been assisted by so able and efficient
a committee as were in charge of
the refreshment booth. The reception was brought to'a close by
the singing of the National Anthem.

tons of ei'ver-lead ore. An effort

electrolotic process. This would
effect a considerable paving per car
of freight and also give greater returns from the metal,

in reply to a letter from an eight
year old girl, asking if their is a

it's so." Please tell me the truth;
is there a Santa Claus?

"Virginia, your little friends are
wrong. They have beeu affected

their little minds.
"All minds, Virginia, whether
they be men's or children's, are
little. In this great universe of

the boundless world about him, as
measured by the intelligence capable of grasping the whole of truth

love and generosity and devotion
exist, and you know that they
abound and give to our life its
highest beauty and joy. Alas !
bow dreary would be the world if
there were no Santa Claus. It
would be as dreary as if there were
no Virginias. There would be no
childlike faith then, no poetry, no
'romance, to make tolerable this
existence. . We should have no
enjoyment, except iu sense and
sight. The eternal light with
which childhood fills the world
be extinguished.
"Not believe in Santa Claus!
You might not as well, believe in
fairies! You might get your p>pa
to hire men to watch in all the
chimneys on Christmas Eve to
catch Santa Claus, but even if they
did not see Santa Clans, but even
if they did not see Santa Claus
Coming down, what would that
prove? Nobody sees Sauta Claus,
bub that is no sign there ia no
Santa Claus.
"The most real things in the
world are those that neither children nor men can see. Did you
ever see fairies dancing on the
lawn ? Of course not, but that's
no proof that they are not there.
Nobody can conceive or imagine
all the wonders there are unseen
and unseeable in the world.
''You may tear apart the baby's
rattle and see what makes the noise
inside, but there is a veil Covering
the jnseen world which not the
strongest man, nor even the united
strength of all the strongest men
that ever lived, could tear apart,
Only faith, fancy, poetry, love,
romance, can push aside that curtain and view and picture the
supernal beauty and glory beyond.
Is it all real ? Ah, Virginia,, in all
this world there is nothing else
real aud abiding.
No Santa Claus !    Thank  God!

THESE ARE  THE
DAYS WHEN THE
TELEPHONE IS
APPRECIATED
The Telephone is very convenient in the winter months. No
matter- what the weather is like
outside, conversation is easily
carried on over the wire.
The telephone trouble man is
always on the job, day and night,
bad weather and good, and the
telephone user always has the
means of instant communication
right at hand.
Long Distance is always short
distance with the telephone. No
one appreciates the telephone
more than the person who has
one. .       .        .        .        .
