Open Column SHOPS AND HOLIDAYS. (To the Editor). Sir,-There recently appeared in your columns a letter signed "One who likes to, see. the game played" re the Shops and Holidays. Personally 1 am of the opinion that letters to th6 Press, of the tone your correspond* ent writes, will not assist in persuad* iug the storekeepers to grant anyex* tra holidays in the future, and 1 think I,may safely say that the views of the majority of the shop-assistants of Young are the same as mine. There are three large firms, to my know* ledge, who were willing to. close their premises on Saturday, January 2nd, also the Wednesday afternoon preced ing that date, and ) consider "One who likes to see the Game Played," a trifle unjust to these Arms, by Includ ing them in Ms wUotesate condemna tion of the storekeepers. Unfortunate ly, several other firms would not agree to close and in consequence all the shops wore open for business. Your correspondent's rcferncc to the shops remaining open on Wednesday a...

OBITUARY. MRS.
