BURGESS Some people can a doubt Feel no disgrace unless found out. ,1-ick Squirrel. Happy Jack isn'f this kind. AH the flme ho was In Bobby Coon's house fca felt ashamed of himself for iljg curiosity to lead him to do a thing he knew wasn't right. He knew he would never have quite the self-re- spect ho had had before he did this thing. "I would hate to be found out. I surely would hate to bo found said he to himself, as he carefully and slowly crept down inside Bobby Coon's house. "I'm glad no ono saw me come in and I hope no one will see me go out." Happy Jack found things just as Chatterer the Red Squirrel had said they were. As he expressed it. there was "a pile of Coons" In the bed at the bottom of that hollow. How many there were he couldn't tell any more than Chatterer, because.they were all together in a mass. He couldn't even tell which one was Bobby Coon. He didn't waste any tinre trying to find out. He didn't feel at all comfortable in there, and he was in a hurry to get out as soon as he had satisfied his curiosity. When he reached Bobby Coon's doorway he carefully -peeped out be- fore going out. He wanted to make sure that no one was about to see him leaving Bobhy Coon's house. He peep- ed this way- He peeped that way. He couldn't see anyone. Apparently there was no one about. Hastily Happy Jack 'scrambled out. Instantly the sharp Addresses of Welcome nt Open- ing Delegates Arc Present o- I 'See him! See shrieked Chat- terer, gleefully. "He wouldn't go into another's Chatterer to jeer at his cousin that way, but Chatterer is a red-coated seamp who often delights in doing things that are not nice. Happy Jack grew angrier and ang- rier. He thought his anger was all with Chatterer, but really it was with himself. He was angry to think that he had done a thing he knew better than to do and so had given Chatterer a chance to jeer at him. And ho was angry because he had been found out. voice of his small cousin, .Chatterer s" ,lie his best to catch Chatterer, the Red Squirrel, barked from the top I But being rather stout and heavy he ot that very tree. was 8oon out ot Finally he "Sec him! See shrieked Chat- a Jump and only by catching terer gleefully. "He wouldn't go into another's house! Oh, no, he wouldn't go into another's house! He is such a good fellow! My, my, my, no one in hold of a branch below saved himself from a bad fall. Then hs gave up and went off home to sulk. And for a long time he heard the jeeriug voice or such a nice, modest, gray coat would Chatterer mocking him. Finally his evar even think such a thing as I anS" Ic me right, going into the house of a neighbor i "f %t last. And I guess you will while he slept. Ot course not. No, indeed. He just got In there by mis- take. He thought it was his own door and got way inside before he found Out his mistake." Happy Jack's ears burned, as the saying is. He guessed that his saucy cousin had suspected what ha would 4o and had watched and seen him en- ter Bobby Coon's house. Now all the Green forest would know about it. would be disgraced. Chatterer tell how he had pretended to fee too good to do such a thing and then had done It just as soon a> he thought no one saw him. Happy Jack lost his temper and rushed at Chat- terer. Chatterer ran swiftly along a branch to the end of it and leaped across to a branch of another tree, Happy Jack after him. It was tho start of a mad chaae through the tree tops. "Mr. Goody Bald lie wouldn't Just because he knew he shouldn't! When he thought that no one knew 1 it Kight away he ran to do So shouted Chatterer aa he ran and Jumped and dodged.

Mrs. Layton deUghted the audience with several very acceptable solos. Course Opened Today j Wesley hall was the scene of great activity today at the opening session. In the main hall some fifty-four dele- gates attended the lectures; upstairs much bustling went on among the ladies who cared for Ihu tiny infants: I nearby was tin interesting kimlergar- j ten. for.the older ones; above all rose the fragrant odor of tea, presaging a nieal in course of construction by the Anglicans. "Poultry Raising" was the subject of the raorniug address given by Z'ro- fessor Bergey uf the University of Al- berta, Edmonton. Professor "liergev advocated birds of a solid color, giv- ing uniformity to the (lock, statins that Barred Plymouth Rocks, White Buff Orpingtons and 1 Ithode Island Reds are the most In favor today. Every ordinary farm should have one hundred birds, which I if properly managed will Rive a good account of themselves. L' ?2 to S3 should be cleared on each bird In a year. The housing of birds need not be expensive but should have the need- ful requisites such as dryness. abun- dance of fresh air, no draughts, and sufficient room, that is four square feet of space to a Iiird. The hRsc should bo kept clffan, with plenty of straw to scratch in, with plenty of light, and if not well ventilated, cot- ton windows should be put in. A straw loft keeps it dry and warm. It should have a high, dry, location, fac- ing south. feeding should bo carefully at- tended to. They should have plenty of water or milk. should be scattered in a litter to make them work la winter give the water to them hot, with occasionally grain. More wheat than oats should be fed. JRe also advocated a dry mash, hot mash, wet mash (not slop- green feed, and plenty of grit and shell.

ALBERTA PIONEER WOMEN HONORED IN CALGARY Ovor 250 pioneer women of Alberta wero honored at a banquet Monday evening in Calgary, by tho Kiwanls Club. In deicritmiB tLo ovent, Tho Albertan says: "From tha drop of the hat, thanks largely to the genius of D. J. Inver- arity, in the role of master of cere- monies, there was not a lagging mo- ment. The spirit of gaiety aud com- radeship, the revival of memories of pioneer days, and the renewal of old' j acquaintances after tho lapse, in instances, of more than 30 years, characterized the event. Without Mr. Inverarity's unparalleled skill aa di- j rector, the full measure of success I could not have been attained, .-but onco the wheels were set rolling by .humorous reminiscent speeches by tho ladies and the men, and the orchestra struck up for the lancers, the party carried itself along. This was the highest tribute to the organizers of tha event. Two Oldest Pioneers The two lady old-timers with the longest record in the province, Mrs. Harrison Young and Mrs. Leslie Wood, were introduced by the chair- man at the opening of the program and bowed and smiled amid the cheers of the company. Both ladies landed at Victoria, east of Edmonton, in 18S2, after spending four years at House. Then followed the i toasts, and the spontaneous, sparkling wit speeches was in pleasing contrast to the usual modern form of i after-dinner oratory. No crowd of young people ever danced the new- fangled graceless dances with the clan of the old-timers in the lancers and Quadrilles, or ever enjoyed their dances aa much, i j Col. James Walker was of the first on the floor. His partner was Mrs. Mackenzie, with whom he danced for the first time at Prince Albert in ISTti, the year of the treaty with the Crees, when he was in charge of I the district of Northern Saskatche- wan. One of the most enjoyable features of the evening was the program-given by artists from the Pantages theatre: Miss- Bell Oliver, Hiss Edith Capps and little Miss Viola Capps anil tho House of David Band. President H. A. Howard of the Ki- wanis Club .welcomed the guests, first because the dinner provided an opportunity for. renewal of old ac- quaintances aud second because tho new-timers wished very sincerely to shaw these ladies who suffered the hardships of the'old days, in what high honor they were held. It was the desire of the club to provide a thirty-year-old atmosphere. Lieut-Col. Sanders, D.S.O., replied in behalf of the ladies. Speeches were also made by Mrs. Wooley-Dod and Mrs. Costigan, of Calgary. Mrs. Trenholme Dickson, formerly of Macleod, now a Lethbrldge resi- dent, was among the guests at the banquet.

A YOUNG GIRL'S PARTY DRESS This delightful dress of pink chif- fon is designed for the young girl who affects pastel shade? when sho goes to parties. This frock is fas- hioned with a rather full overskirt punctuated at intervals by series of pin tucks. The upper part of the underdress is developed in embroid- ered filet net. The corsage is open- ed down the front so that one may glimpse the bodice of filet under- neath. Tho sleeves are short and finished with a deep band of filet net which shows very riet embroid- ery. In copying this dress you might make it more elaborate by adding a garland of flowers to the chiffon girdle. wuro prm-cnt aud tho churvh nil- ml.

Those who serve better than their brothers will get a place more exulted, said the preacher. Jesus t'hrUt does not try to throttle ambit- ion but shows that eervlco Is the true aim. True greatness is defined as service. Greatness is not obtained by the service a man can command but by 'the servico he can render, continued Captain Denoon. In olden days strength, military honors and wealth were considered as greatness but now true greatness lies in unselfish service. "This greatness is within the reach of all people. Whersvcr you may go tliere will be opportunities to ho said. First of ail opportunities must be found for service. These, he said, are always at hand, in the home aud in the community. The second necessity is ability and everyone has this. "There is one thing the Rotary Club has done and that is to bring togeth- er a number of men and produced their ability to said Captain Deuoon. Next comes willingness to usa the ability, "If a man is selfish ho is un- likely to put hinlseH out for any one and I may say God help the selfish he continued. "There must bo a willingness to use the ability to take advantage of the i ho said. The preacher told of the growth of Rotary since it was founded by a few men in 1905. Now Rotary has a membership in the neighborhood of and has eight hundred clubs. This movement, he said, Is destined to become a great national and inter- national force.
