You will be surprised to find how easy it is, and how much pleasure it will bring you, as well as those you cheer. The Herald, in its annual appeal for the kiddies who are looking forward with innocent faith, but with little prospect, for ihe coming of Santa Glaus, offers you an opportunity of joining the ranks of the Goodfellows this Christmas, A dollar bill will go a long way. .It will furnish a big Christmas surprise' for some little lad or lassie who may not otherwise have known the joy of Christmas. Turn in your dollar to the Herald Christmas Fund today. The fund is to be turned over to the Nursing Mission, whose officers know perhaps better than any others just where the money will bring the most cheer and the greatest comfort. There are children this year who will hang up their stockings and will receive abundantly of the good things of Santa. There are other little ones, however, who will hang their stockings up just the same, but who, through family misfortune, may be deprived of the happiness that should be the children's lot at Christmastide. Don't let these little kid'' dies find empty stockings, Your dollar will help a lot. Be a good fellow NOW. BRITISH LOSSES ML BRITISH BOATS IS VERY HEAVY W. A.
