Lake Harbor, on the south end of Baffin Island, Is the handsomest of all the eastern Arctic settlements. The Hudson's Bay Company buildings are set down at the head of a long Inlet, and behind It are sheltering mountains. On the other side of the inlet Is the R.C.MP. post, also with lis sheltering background. White stones mark the patlis, and at the landing the Eskimo attached to the R.C.M P. have their tupeks, proudly flying the Union Jack. Before the company's buildings Is a wide . flat gravelly parade ground, where sports are staged among the natives. It corresponds to the front lawn back home but there isn't soil enough for a lawn. . The first sight of Lake Harbor is of the trim white buildings and their colorful background. The foreshore rocks are bare and barren, but the ship's sirens have brought kayaks and whaleboats hurrying to the inlet, and by the time the ship is ready to discharge cargo the natives have landed, set up their tupeks, moved in and settled down, and are then ready to help unload the scows. The scows come Into a landing between massive rocks. There is something clean and colorful about Lake Harbor. In some places the rocks have been crushed by time and the overload and bright the Sacred Heart church. Surviving besides her husband are four sons, Arthur of New-York, and Edmond, Maurice and George of Ottawa; two daughters, Miss Alice Richer, Ottawa, and Mrs. J. R. Bonhomme, Hull; and two sisters, Mrs. Arthur Gauthier and Mrs, George Duck, both of Ottawa. The funeral will be held from her late residence, 22 Stewart street, on Friday at 7.15 a.m. to the Sacred Heart church for requiem high mass at 7.30 o'clock. Interment will be in Notre Dame cemetery. MRS. CHARLES KASOl'F. Word has been received in Ottawa of the death of Sunday, in North Sydney, N.S., of Mrs. Charles Kasouf, a resident of the Capital for 40 years. She had been ill only a few days. The former Anastasia Kayat, she was born in Zahlie, Syria, 69 years ago. When a young girl she came to Ottawa to live. Six years ago she and her husband removed to North Sydney. Her husband at the present time is on a visit to Syria. While in Ottawa Mrs. Kasouf attended St. Brigid's church and was a member of Ste. Anne's Society. Two sisters survive.

THE DOMINION BANK lablihd 1871 crimson seams attract attention crushed garnet. Here and there fairly good crystals can be picked out but the pressure from above has crushed the garnet to crimson sand. Later at Dundas Harbor I found streaks of crimson on the sandy beach; tiny particles of garnet washed out of the rocks and washed up by the tide. The cargo Is soon unloaded at Lake Harbor, and then sports are called. . On the parade ground the natives, old and young, run races, pull lustily in a tug-of-war and vie with each other; 'all the while laughing and shouting.' Grown up and elderly natives are Just like the children. There Is a tug-of-war between the women. With the babies still on their backs the women pull and strain at the rope: gasping "Ale-ee-ee." Everybody laughs and shouts but the babies in the hoods; and they being in imminent danger of taking a header in the stooping excitement, nonchalantly explore the strange meat popped into their mouths: candies they have never tasted before. Captain Smellietsees one side losing and throws his weight. To even up Major McKeand takes a hand, and the tug-of-war finally ends with uproarious shouts. Captain Smellie climbs on the roof of the store verandah. Major McKeand hands up a pail of hard candies. By the handful the captain throws them out and the natives scramble for them. In the scrambling crowd is a little cripple boy who can not walk but crawls around. In all that hustle and bustle nobody pushes him. nobody seizes the candy he reaches for. There is no kinder race on earth than the Canadian Eskimo. The love of children is part of their nature. After the scramble the families get together. Trust an Eskimo for co-operation. The children and grownups too pool their candies with the mother. The little girls have made the greatest haul. The hoods of their kooletahs made handy pockets, and as fast as they picked up the candies they stuffed them In the hood, leaving both hands free to scramble for more. The skipper brings out half a dozen old felt hats, saved for the occasion. He throws them one by one and there is a wild scramble: A cripple man looks at the hats but he cannot scramble. D. A. Nichols, the government geologist, reaches up a hand and catches a hat as it sails through the air and gives it to the cripple. The beaming thanks need no words. There is a kite left; a box kite that has been flown from , a mountain top to see how the wind goes. Major McKeand looks at the kite; its no good to be scrambled for. He sees the little crippled Eskimo looking wistfully at it. Helgives the boy the kite, and the whole family gathers admiringly around. A bead necklace given to a native girl brings a chorus of "Aie-ee-ee's" from her whole family including her sisters and her cousins and her aunts and her grandmothers. Night falls and the lights go on in the little church among the rocks. . The little bell tolls, and the seal clad Eskimo come scrambling over the rocks. The Eskimo and the white TO MODERNIZE YOUR HOME WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 11, 1936. have much in common. It is chiefly the women and children who come to the little church at Lake Harbor. They pack the church to suffocation: literally The odor of sanctity in a church full of Eskimo is sealskin. I attend divine service, but from the outside of an open window. ' Rev. Mr. Neilson. the Anglican missionary, conducts the service. He is assisted by Rev. Mr. Herb ert, the missionary bound for Pangnlrtung and Rev. Mr, Flint bound for Pond Inlet. The old family hymn tunes are wafted down the inlet, but the words are strange and somewhat guttural. There is no doubt as to the earnestness of the singers. There are a few native girls and boys but not men. Eskimo women have a good ear for music and from a distance one could not tell the singing from that of a white congregation. The service is short, but full of piety. There is a Bible reading in Eskimo, and a few words of exhortation. Then more singing, and prayers. The babies in the kooletah look on with bright little dark eyes, gazing mostly at the lamps wmcn ngnt tne cnurcn; so different from the dim flickery light in the tupeks. The Eskimo language is a most complicated affair and difficult to learn, and few men really un derstand it. The natives are peo ple of few words, but they make them mean a lot. They string sylhibles together like beads on a necklace. The missionaries go back to the mission house, a little frame building put up originally for some of the Interior Department scientists. There is a knock at the door and a small Eskimo boy holds out a tiny sliver of walrus ivory which he has carved into a small imltatien of a snow knife. The missionary gives him candies and tosses the little knife in a drawer. "I can't refuse them you know,", he remarked. "They see their fathers trading carved ivory at the store, and they want to trade too but these little things have no value, but I always give them something." In carving walrus tusk ivory the Eskimo are very skillful, but that's another story.

Peter Bryce, of Toronto, moderator of the general council, will be in attendance and will address the gathering.

A glass or two of liquor weakens the judgment which gives way to the temptation of opportunity and to social pressure, and ultimately is frequently overborne by a growing appetite. . , The moderate drinker is today the greatest danger on the highway and in the factory. He is probably the most frequent cause of accident. A glass or two make him a menace. Every drunkard, every alcoholic inmate of an asylum, every alcoholic murderer, everyone to whom drink has become an entanglement, a master, a tyrant, while none of them ever expected such a result, began as a moderate drinker. Abstinence is The Rock of Safety ii Struck By Truck, Skull Fractured (Special to Th Cltlicn.)
