The Beaver, Vol. I, No. 4, January 1921 by Company

We wish Miss Muir every success


building consists of two stories and basement. In addition the Company also operates a wholesale and retail tobacco and candy business on rented premises situated at the corner of Victoria Street and Third Avenue.

The business at Kamloops comprises eight departments--general dry goods, ladies' wear, men's furnishings, boots and shoes, crockery and hardware, house furnishing, groceries and tobaccos.

Miss Brooke, of the grocery staff, resigned her position with the Company and was married on January 1st, 1921. She was presented with a travelling bag by the staff. We wish her all kinds of joy and happiness in her new venture. She was a real "good fellow" and will be greatly missed by us.

Miss Muir has accepted the position made vacant by Miss Brooke of the Grocery Department. We wish Miss Muir every success.

Miss Cozens says she was never "locked out" in her life, but she experienced the feeling of being "locked in." She says "never again."

The Staff presented Mr. A.E. Dodman, our store manager, and Mrs. Dodman with a Christmas gift of a very handsome tea set with best wishes.

A rumour is heard to the effect that Mr. McDonald, the accountant, has become an expert dancer, and has accepted an invitation

to teach three ladies the fine points in dancing. Nice for Mac, but kind of tough on the ladies.

After a very busy and most successful Christmas trade the staff have settled down for the most successful January sale we have ever had.


_Entire Staff a Santa Claus to Mr. Pout, Xmas_

On Christmas Eve, at the close of the biggest day in the history of the Vernon Store, the staff gathered for a few minutes to extend good wishes and exchange tokens of friendship. At the conclusion, Mr. Pout was captured when trying to tip-toe off, set securely within the smiling circle, and compelled to listen to the following effusion which Tom Bone, the store poet, says he did not compose. It is now being blamed on Jack Ricketts, and so far Jack hasn't denied it.

_Our dear respected Mister Pout We guess you guess what we're about; If not, you won't be long in doubt, But get the sense, So we shall quickly put to rout Your dread suspense._

_It's Christmas time, as you well know, And we have gathered here to show That years may come and years may go, With rush and zest, But our good feelings far outgrow This timely test?_

_It gives us joy to give to you This coffee service, bright and new, And wish that all things good and true That hope conjures, May travel all the next year through With you and yours._

Mr. Pout was too full for words (_honi soit qui mal y pense_), but he managed to express his hearty thanks for the splendid support and co-operation he had received from the entire staff during the Christmas rush, also for the kind thought which prompted the giving of such a beautiful gift.
