James Boyd brought with him a story of democracy in Canada told him by Leonard W. Brockington, director of publicity for the Canadian Government: "I came back to Canada,” Mr. Brockington said, speaking of his re turn from England, "wondering what was going' to happen when war was declared. I found exactly what I had hoped. By the free choice of a free people in a free Parliament a unan imous decision was given to stand by the side of England and of France. "I say ‘unanimous’ there was one exception. There was one man who voted to abstain from war. He was honoured because he did. He was a man who had been a pacifist all hia life; he declined to depart from his principles on that occasion. There was an aftermath which, to me, has always appeared a wistful illustration of the kind of democracy that we treasurer in Canada. We had, as you know, a yen- eral election a few months ago. The ONE BRIEF, BUT HEARTFELT, indication of the appreciation of sol diers for the hospitality of Southern Pines residents was a letter received this week by one family who had en tertained a soldier over the week-end The letter said: ' It's people like you and .your fam ily who keep up the spirits of the soldiers of today.

Holly Home Demonstration Club look forward to the selling of Christmas seals in our Club and Com munity. Heretofore we have had strong competition through the school children. We appoint a chairman to look after the sale, usually the Health Committee or some interested person. She gets her supplies, the amount that .she thinks she can sell, from the County Chairman. In order to reach all our members we announce Hhead of time that at our December club meeting they will have the op portunity to buy seals and to come prepared to do so. Each member is asked to buy some If only a few. At the meeting the chairman makes a short talk and explains the fact that 75 per cent of the money realized from the sale is kept right here in our own county and used on our T. B. patients and the other 20 and five per cent goes to the State and na tional organizations. Last year we invited Mrs. Cheat ham to our club meeting. She gave us the straight facts of how they cared for and treated the patients with the seal money until they could enter the sanatorium. She also told of how the work was helping to lower T. B. Trouble in the County. If We don't sell all our seals at the club meeting we try to sell what we can in the community. Out of this sale the women derive a lot of good as well as pleasure. W'ei know we are helping a great cause, j that, of helping some person afflict ed with the dreadful T. B. and not financially able to get the proper treatment. We know our help is go ing straight to that person. The spir it shown in onr .'leal sale creates an atmosphere of cooperation in carry ing o\it the splendid standards set up by our club. We beronie stronger united in our club work by the very fart that we are putting our heads and pocket books together and help- ine pu.sh over one of the greatest and best campaigns put on in onr County. It i.s the unity of love and fellow.ship. the desire to help others that brings satisfaction to our hearts when the sale is ended. Throughout the coming, year when T. B. patients are receiv ing the benefit of our efforts it is gratifying to know we did our part when we had the chance. —MRS. C,. P. JONES, Health Chairman Alt. Holly Home Demonstration Club.
