The Maid of Orleans was raised to Sainthood this year and most likely 'this fact called forth these verses in the Pall Maga- zine. They are by one of our Can- adian Theodore Koberts, of Fredericion, N. B. The Daylight Bill which is, caus- ing such a stir in Great Britain ap- pears to be gaining followers in Ca- nada as well. The idea of getting up an hour' earlier in however j distasteful that may be, is balanced I by the thought happy reward the end of the day, when work is quit an hour sooner than usual. It's not a bad plan, but most of us incline to. Lamb's philosophy in this matter. You remember when someone remonstrated with him on going so late to .the Indian office, he but think of how early I Of course that's the ideal, and. in time if people will- only have the strength of their convictions, an- other Bill may be brought in cutt- ing an hour or so off each end of the working day. It ought to be popular and in. spite of the inevitable oppo- sition of that small but strong-mind- ed minority whose boast it :s that they' love- to rise before breakfast and do half a day's work, and talk about it the rest of the spite of this opposition, don't you think j the Bill would go through with col-' ors flying? It would, if a secret census were taken. Just, look over your lists of j friends and decide how many would I vote against it if unhampered by Mrs. [Gruiidy. There's the xub. Force of j sentiment and an early in such a literary gem as j the voice of the sluggard, I hear him complain. You have waked me too sxn. 1 'must slumber have made us very diffident in ex- pressing our real views in ris- ing. It is a brave man who will say 1 a "word for the hero of thi little :poem. For that reason the heroine in one of Kate Dougla-s Wiggins' _ books endears herself to us forever j by one frank little speech. It is a touch of nature which makes the 'world on Sunday i mornings. Someone said to I "Aren't you ashamed of not getting; and the reply came with.beau- j tiiul honesty, I am., but I'd ra- j i ther be ashamed than get up." I These are your sentiments down in your heart aren't they? I Of course our short day bill will go i through. Think what- a saving it j mean in all lines. If we rise j [after breakfast there will be no I need of that meal! We'll save quan- 'tities of oranges and grapes, fruit and bacon and eggs and-marmalade and rolls and coffee. No more will !the old question, "What new break- !iast food shall I Confront us 'with only two meals a day to think 1 about, the millenium will be almost at hand. In the meantime we shall watch j .with interest the progress of the Day- flight Bill with an impersonal sym- pathy. It doesn't appeal to the West. i When we can play' tennis, watch ball 'games or read in the open air till half past nine or feel that our evenings are long enough. j If the bill does not-pass we cor- Idially invite members oi it to- come :and take up their abode in South- :ern Alberta, where no Act of Parlia- :ment is needed to give us long hours clear, sunny daylight, good, both for work and recreation.

It's "so cheap" and especially in the West one has few opportunities to indulge that par- ticular form of self-satisfaction, that it's no wonder that we all take greed ily to bargain counters, Anne. Social and Personal The dance given by Mrs. Nourse last Saturday evening was exceed- ingly pleasant, and much enjoyed by everyone, and perhaps especially by some of the guests who have re- cently come to town, in whose honor it was.

The Little Sisters of St. Augustin's church who dispensed such good tea and cake in several of the shops on Saturday afternoons some iew months ago, are holding a bazaar this afternoon in. the Parish Hall.

Visitors know just why Christie's biscuits are the best and hundreds visit the big factory every season. The Christie, Brown people stake their reputation on cleanliness and quality. The raw product is the purest and best money can buy, and every ounce of it is carefully analyzed before it can enter the bake rooms. Every device and making for the perfection of the is used in the big factory. The bright and cheerful employes, all arrayed in spotlessly white uni- forms laundried on the premises, speak volumes for the sanitary conditions under which they work. You just buy Christie's Biscuits' once and you'll know why your neighbors call them "so good." The best grocers keep them, and they cost no more. PRICE OF SHARES TO ADVANCE AFTER AUG. 1st. (Cardston.
