Tho convention programme was undoubtedly one of tho finest that had boon prepared tor Sunday School workers for some timo, embracing, as it did, all tho most practical and up-to-date methods of work. The i>rincii)ol .siioaker of the convon tion was Mr. W. C. Pearce, of Chicago, superintendent o'f the Adult Department of the International Sunday School Association. Mr. Pearce was a veritable encyclopaedia, being thoroughly conversant on all the methods of.work. His address on tho "World's Oroatost Syndicate" was one of tho most masterful and eloquent that has ever been hoard in this W'cst, and showed the Sunday Schools of the Twentieth Century to bo tho most powerful organization in the world today nuirchiiig under one banner.

Gordon, Pastor of Knox Presbyterian Church, Lethbridge Henry Ward Beecher hold that every student of the ministry should be traiiH>d to sing. "When he hjus been examined in Divinity, in Cluircli History, in Hebrew and Gri-ek, then let hbn sing and if he cannot sing tell him to make a joyful noise." To sing and at least to produce a joyful noise, is one way of giviig ihUiilis. "Blessed is the man th'nt sings at his work." When one does his work tliankfully, with mu.sic in his heiirt and in his life, he is likely to live long and bo hap- py. Another way to show gladness is to fire off guns. We have tho 'feu do joio," the royal salute, our Victoria Day and the King's birthday. No doubt many will celebrate Thanksgiving Day by firing guns. They may come home in the evening laden with wildfowl, or they may bo like thi' candid sportsman who de- clared, "Tliere was black murther in niy heart, but great mercy in my forefinger." They too will enjoy the outing. Others again, freed for tin' day from shop or oflice, will disport .ihenitiolves like young horses turned loose, kicking uj) heels, and giving ^very sign of joy. May one and all have what our American cousias call a "real pood time." How many remember tho true meaning of Thanksgiving Day? Nearly every civic holiday was in the first instance, a Church "holy day." Like Cliiistnias Doy, Thanksgiving Day has a religious meaning. This is a day set apart by the Statins a day of public thanksgiving to God for His goodness. The sports of the day will be improved, its enjoyments brightened, if we do not forget Him, "Who giveth us richly all things to enjoy." A CANDIDATE FORTHECin COUNCIL A. Frayne Nominated By North Ward Ratepayers The ratepayers ot North Ward are early iit the municipal election game. Last night at a fairl.v repre-si.'iitativo meeting held in J. W^ Boultou's new store, Arthur Frayne was nominated for the council and Robert Nimmons for the school board. Considerable discussion arose over the proposal to put two candidates for council in the field. Tin; sjieok-ers in favor of the proposal argued that as live alderman _ were to be elected. North Ward could vote in two representatives. This was ensidered necessary as one representative had not as yet been able to secure for North Ward its share of the civic exp.'nditures. And in this connection eonsiderabli' criticism was given the v.'ork of tho couf.cil although the majority of tlie speakers gave the council credit for a pood deal of what had be(>n done during the year. The failure of the council to put the water (ui Torrance .\ve. even though wiitia' and sewers had b.>en' laid in the main part of tho city where it had been askexl for until after the pipe in Torrance ,\vo. had been promised, was the chief complaint. Tho scarcity of street lights and the absence of now sidewalks also caused odversc criticism. Tho ineflicloiiey of fire protection, tlie luck of suits for the firemen, and provision for the care ot the apparatus were dwelli upon. They have no police ijroteet ion iixcept when caiiiplaiiUs are laid. One of the speakers severely criticized the purchase- of the market site as "practically a graft," wlu-rehy members of the "charmed cirel>'" unloaded a wliit 'It e
