Dr. Green Cup Series Closes
Monday Evening With
Interesting Game
On Monday evening of this week
the fiiinl game for the Dr. Green cup
was played, before a ta\t crowd, nt
tho Arena rink, between the Blue-
hints and the ('anticks. The two
teams huve been striving for supremacy all during (he hockey season and
ns was expected, this Inst game wus
a very strenuous one. The Blue-
bti'da hnd won ull garnets ho fur and
were out to hold their place The j
Canucks were equally determined to i
lake the last game of the series.
The play started fast and furious
and it was not long before it was seen
that the hitherto victorious Bluebirds
were going to have no easy time in
securing a victory. During the first
period, the Canucks secured their
first gonl, Miss B. Woodman being
the lucky goal getter. During the
second period the play was very even
and resulted in no score. In the
third period, Miss Burton secured the
puck at the Bluebird end and after
skating almost the full length of the
rink .shot from the side and netted
the tying tally. This necessitated the
playing of overtime during the first
five minutes of which Miss Godderis,
after a nice combination play with
Miss Burton, secured the winning
shot with a nicely raised puck. The
second period was scoreless, the
Canucks winning the match by 2 to 1
and the series of games of 6 to 1.
As might be expected, due to the
strenuousnesB of the game there were
two of the players given timeoff, In
the first period, Miss Greaves and fn
the second final period Miss I. Sly,
were given a chance for a rest. Mr,
Ashton Powers made an efficient referee.
The players were: Bluebirds—The
Misses M. McDonald, I. Sly, Olive
Hyde, Margaret Godderis, Marjorie
Burton, Louise Robertson, Mrs,
Ryckman, and Lillian Jackson, spare.
Canucks—Misses Francis Drummond,
Myrtle McCnslin, Miss Wright, Delia
Greaves, Bessie Woodman, Annie
Moir and Miss Patterson,
The Dr. Green cup is a particularly handsome one and has been in

during the past few days.
The workers wno had in charge
the arangements for the boys' work
conference which took place in the
city last week-end, desire to extend
to nil those who assisted them in carrying out the arrangements for the
various meetings, including especial
Iy the Futher-and-Son bunquet, their
sincere appreciation of them and cooperation which they were given from
so many sources. This help so freely given, und the interest shown, it
is felt wus responsible for u good deu)
of the success uttending the big gathering on Friday.
io nonor new    circle to present    part in big event
The second Fnlher-und-Son banquet to be held in this city, which
look place on Friday evening Insl, nl
the K.P. Hall, was an undoubted success. No otie could I'i'il to bo impressed with tho night Of Ihe hull
pocked with men accompanied by
their una, or some boys they were
fathering for the occasion, and nil
taking an unmistakable Interest in
the proceedings. The gathering would
seem to give the lie to a disquieting
feeling some have given expression to from time to time, that parents in general—including tho fathers—were too much absorbed in
muttrcrs considered to he ol* more moment, to concern themselves to such
nn extent with tho welfare of the
next generation.
There must hnve been between
four hundred and fifty and five hundred lads and dads in attendance at)
told, nnd the gathering was characterized by Mr. Taylor Statten, of Toronto, whose presence in the city was
really the inspiration for tho unique
affair, us the largest of its kind he
had attended anywhere in the province outside of the coast points.
That at least means something to
Cranbrook. It was the opening number In the week-end program of meetings and conferences, at which it was
planned to take up seriously the idea
of establishing boys' work on a bigger basis in this city, particularly
along the lines of the Trail Rangers
and Tuxis Square work, which give
expression to the comprehensive program as drawn up under the scheme
known as the Canadian Standard of
Efficiency Training for boys.
Ladies Give Valued Assistance
In the capable hands of a committee of ladies from the churches
was placed the task of providing a
banquet for the big crowd on Friday
evening, Mrs. W. B. McForlane act
ing ns the head of the committee, and
having the assistance and co-operation of many willing helpers. How
well they carried out their essential
part of the proceedings was clearly
attested to by the zest with which
the sumptuous repast was attacked
when the "fall to" signal was given,
anil there were numerous appreciative remarks made both on the satisfying nature of the repast, and the
willing service the ladies pave with
it, which found more concrete expression later in the evening.
Before the banquet started, nnd
immediately after it, there was an
informal singsong engaged in, with
J. M. Clark as song master, at. which
nome dnd-nnd-lnd Bongs, adapted to
well known tunes, were given with
good spirit. There were also two
other musical numbers given during
the evening, a violin and piano duet
by Garnet and Edward Pntnioiv,
which was very well received, so that
the young  performers  were  recalled
for an encore.    An appropriate solo
was also given by Mr. Harry Collier.
Kev.   M.   S.   Blackburn    acted    as
chairman for the big gathering, and
it was remarked that a wide portion
Of the Bast Kootenay district waa
represented in the crowd, boys and
grown-ups being present from most
of the points all the way between
Fernie in the one direction, and Creston the other way. Many of the
boys who came from a distance wore
staying over for the night, and for
as    many    as    possible    homes    were
found for them to slay in, io that
their visit in the city might he made
as pleasant as possible.
Boyi' Parliament Report
The first speakers of the evening
were Murray Garden ami Byrop
llnynes, two Tuxis boys from this
city Who were iu attendance at the
Boys' Parliament held last December
at Victoria. Speaking entirely without notes, and in a very convincing
manner, Murray Garden explained
the nature of this unique gathering,
und how it was constituted. Its business, he explained, was to consider
the program of the work for the coming year, and the methods by which
the funds for it could be raised; it
wns shown thnt there wns no childishness in the method of deliberating
the questions at stake, but thnt the

Sunday evening the last of a series
of meetings in connection with the
conference which took place in Cranbrook over the week-end took place
In the United Church, when Mr. Cox,
of Salmon Arm, spoke to a congregation which crowded the hall. He
was listened to with apparently keen
Interest, and undoubtedly his message will be long remembered and
will redound to the well-being of the
citizens of "Cranbrook, both young
and old. The speaker expressed his
appreciation of the manner in which
the citizens had backed up their efforts in the work, and felt that
through the meetings the whole boyhood of Cranbrook would receive
some inspiration to go out and live
strong and well-balanced lives.
The program which they were trying to put into effect was so constructed that the boy who came into
contact with it would become constrained to lead a better life; their
main object being to get boys in
touch with the life of Jesus,
Their program was one In which
the boy could find himself. This
program hud been endorsed by the
churches, since the boys in becoming
disciples of Jesus, became members
of the church. Filled with the right
spirit, in their school work, on the
field of sport, and in the home, they
would exhibit their right leadership,
The text, as it were, or motto of
the boys, he said, was "Jesus increased in wisdom and stature and ir
favor with tlod npd man," and in s
most interesting manner, he went on
to show the importance of each of
the four branches of development
signified by this text. The manner
in which the speaker connected the
life of testis ns n boy with that of
the boy of today, was indeed interesting and in a very natural way.
The speaker concluded with a strong
appeal for the support of the program through which they hoped to
bring nhout a greater desire for the
better things in the men of to-morrow.
At the conclusion of the address,
th* pastor, Rev. B. C. Freeman, who,
using his own words, is somewhat reticent about expressing publicly his
opinion of speakers, said he felt forced to thank the speaker for the message that he hud brought, particularly pleasing to him was the background of the christian life, against
which his scheme was developed.

The regular meeting of the city
council wns held in the council chamber on Thursday evening last, when
the following were present: His Worship Mayor Roberts in the chair, Aldermen MucPherson, Fink, Flowers,
Hicks and Jackson.
Mr. G. J. Spreull, who hnd been
given permission on behalf of the
Library to address of the meeting,
dealt at some length with the work
of the Library Board since its inception, submitting figures to show that
the revenue to December 1st wn* just
sufficient to cover the overhead and
other expenses. Mr. Spreull thanked the council for the assistance given
the Library Board last year and asked
that consideration be given to the
matter of a grant to assist in taking
care of the overhead during the year
1920. He suggested an amount of
$300.00 to he paid in monthly installments.
Several communications were rc-
eived us follows;

Weekly Gyro Meeting
Winnipeg, Feb. 15.—Arrangements
for the movement of several thousand delegates from western Canada
to the Eucharisttc Congress at Chicago June 20 to 24 have now been
completed by the railroads. Chicago
is preparing for one million visitors
during the Congress and the role
which the railways will have to play
in the transportation of the greater
part of this huge gathering presents
problems which are occupying the
full time of a lommittee of the keenest traffic experts on the continent.
The Cnnadian delegation will be a
very large one, according to reservations already made and will be
| thoroughly representative of the
I whole of the dominion. In addition
j to special services from the prairie
I provinces and British Columbia, vari-
! ous organizations have contracted for
' special trains from the Maritimes,
, Quebec and Ontario. These are
merely first reservations and do not
take into consideration the hundreds
I that will travel to Chicago by the
I regular trains. Already plans are
{being formulated to assemble large
numbers of cars to take care of this
record-breaking passenger traffic
and trackage space is being set aside
at Montreal, Toronto and Winnipeg
and elsewhere.
'At Chicago, where the most severe
traffic problems will arise, the Cona-

Trade was held on Wed
ing ut the Y.M.C.A., the businesi
eedings taking place after the din
ner. About thirty were present when
the meal wns partaken of, and the
catering of Alex Hurry, of the
White Lunch, was fully up to his
usual high standard, which is saying
u good deal. Included among thus
present were Messrs. Jacobson and
Robertson, of Lumberton
About 7,30 the business part of
the program wus launched, with W.
H. Wilson, the president, as ebuir-
man, and C. J. Lewis recording the
proceedings ns secretary. The minutes of the last annual meeting and
of the last executive session were
read and approved; the latter containing some references to business
which waB to be touched on during
the evening.
All Round Progress Repsrted
The report of W. IL Wilson, the
president, covering last year's work,
and he outlook for the coming year,
was then presented, und is given in
full in another column. It bespoke n
snne optimism in considering the welfare of the district, and emphasized
the fact that the promise of the Kast
Kootenay district cannot be denied.
In moving the adoption of the president's report, J. P. Fink voiced appreciation of the excellent and untiring work which Mr. Wilson has undertaken for the hoard of trade,
which was carried with applause.
The reports of the various committees being proceeded with, W. S
Santo was called upon to report for
the mining committee. While modestly depreciating the idea that he
had done very much in this behalf,
he stated his willingness at all times
to do what he could for the advance
ment of mining in the district. He
felt that the district generally does
not realize the promise there is in

On n recent trip on his engine
Frank Russell,* well known C.P.R.
engineer, encountered another rock
slide almost at the spot, near Jerome,
where last November an engine
freight train was precipitated Into
the lake, causing the death of Robert Eley, C.P.R. fireman. The rock
which Mr, Russell's engine struck was
■stimated to have weighed upwards
of 40 or 50 tons, but fortunately
lid not land squarely on the track.
It remained on the side of the track,
but projected far enough so that
side of the engine struck the
rock, causing some damage to the
ngine and stripping oft' some of the
side gear, The engine was running
very slowly at the time or the results
might have been far more serious.
There is now some talk of undertaking to move this entire bluff from
overhanging angle and pitching
it into the lake, und if this were
done, rail way men would no doubt
feel that one of their worst menaces,
about this time of the year, had been
removed. It is recalled that many
years ago, A. E. Watts, who formerly
resided at Wattsburg, now known as
Lumberton, and was then connected
with the newspaper business in Cranbrook, called attention frequently to
tht* danger which this piece of track
presented, and urged continually
that steps be taken to safeguard the
railway at this point.

meetings of the boys' conference

took place in the Presbyterian
Church, and in the opinion of many
present was the most helpful of the
Besides Mr. Statten, Mr. Cox, of
Salmon Arm, opened the meeting
with a few remarks, in which he
stated thnt in this, the final meeting
of the campaign, it was their desire
to endeavor to project the minds of
the boys along the path of their
lives. He felt that Mr. Statten would
o focus things that they would get
i fresh realization of Him who said
I am the way, the truth and the light.
That he was successful in doing so
was the opinion of many and this wus
given expression to in a motion which
was moved by Messrs. F. Constantino and J. M. Clark at the conclusion
of his remarks.
The speaker, through his interesting discourse, showed the importance
of making the proper choice of the
ways in which we may direct our
lives, referring often to the word
picture which is here given:
"To every man there openeth a
way and ways and A Way.
The high soul climbs the high
way and the low soul gropes
the low,
And in between on the misty
flats the rest drift to and fro.
To every man there openeth a
high way ond o low,
And every man decideth the way
his soul shall go."

Cranbrook, B.C.,
February 16th, 1926.
The Cranbrook Herald,
Dear  Sirs:
In order tn clear up an apparent
misunderstanding in connection with
the estimutcd expenditure of the
School Board for fuel, as published
in your issue of Feb. llth, will you
be good enough to give space to the
following explanation:
The estimated expenditure for
fuel anticipated to be required for
the year 1926 is exactly the same as
that estimated for the year 1925,
namely $3,350.00.
The actual cost of feul consumed
during the year 1924 was $3358.63,
and a similar amount was provided
for In the 1925 estimates, The actual consumption during the year
1925 wus only $2713.39, due to a
large extent to the extremely mild
winter. It not being anticipated,
however, that we are likely to have
a similar winter in 1926, provsion
bus been made in the Expenditures
for n similar amount to that used in
previous years, namely $3,350.00.
The amount of $635.00 mentioned
in your issue of Feb. llth is the excess arrived at by comparing tlu anticipated fuel runiuntpiioa foe lftlft
Following is the report of W. IL
Wilson, president of the Cranbrook
Board of Trade for last year, nnd
re-elected for the coming year, as
given Ht the annual meeting on Wednesday evening:
In presenting the Annual Report
of the Cranbrook Board of Trade for
the year 1986, I am glad to say that
I do so with even more confidence
and optimism for the future than I
hud a year ago.
Conditions iu Canada at the beginning of another year are much
more cheerful than they were a year
ago. und the outlook for ihe restoration of world-wide trade to normalcy
is certainly brighter, and we have
much more reason to feel optimistic
than at any time since the Great
The economic waste of the war nnd
the wild orgy of extravagance that
followed the armistice must all be
atoned for before the ship of commerce regains an even keel, and it
takes a long time for a country to
recover, that suffered so deeply und
gave so unstintedly aa Canada.
The most cheerful sign of returning prosperity is the outcome of the
Locarno Conference, nnd if its promises of reconciliation among the nations of Europe are fulfilled, there
certain to be a pronounced stimulation of International trade, and industry will once more get into its
tride. The pressing necessity of
restricting, as far as may be legitimately possible, all national expenditures is generally recognized, but
unless it is followed by appropriate
action which results in reduction in
taxes, we cannot regard it other than
an ineffective gesture.
If our expenditure? should be so
controlled lhat within a reasonable
time Canadian taxes should not exceed those imposed in the United
States it would prove an important
stimulus to industry, and also an effective aid to immigration and colonization, the need for which is apparent. In urging that this measure
of prudence and economy should be
exercised, we do not do so with any
feeling that lack of confidence in the
country itself is warranted. In fact,
I think we should be more convinced
than ever that the country, actually
and potentially, possesses such wealth
and opportunity, that Its future cannot be denied, and we should discourage, most strongly, expressions
of opinion based upon local conditions and individual business, which
are perverted into pessimism, as to
the country's future, when no real
foundation to such a sentiment exists. Canada has unlimited resources
and wealth, and East Kuotenay is
specially favored in thi; regard.
Our board, thanks to the secretary
and the different committees, has
been very active during the past year,
and has assisted materially jn agriculture, lumbering and mining, the
three principal industries of the district; improvement of motor roads,
parking accommodations for tourists,
and in many ways baa contributed
to the prosperity of the city and district.
We have raised for all purposes
the splendid sum of $1800, thanks to
the generosity of the citizens of
Cranbrook and surrounding district.
We assisted the city council to the
extent of $500 toward improvements
in tourist park; erected a show case,
for district mineral display on north
side of Pout Office, at a cost of $300;
entertained the Associated Boards of
Trade, and now have under consideration, with the assistance of the
C.P.R., an addition to the Y.M.C.A.
of a gym and swimming pool; extra
accommodation and additional help

Dumper crops ami good prices have given western
■-' farmers an opportunity to visit scenes of boyhood
days. Britishers who took up farm lands in the Canadian West are taking advantage of the good season
to sail back home for n view of familiar but long
hidden sights and faces. Every east-going train carries scores of happy men and women bound for the
Old Country.
Here and there among the surging passengers getting ready to change from train to boat are the eager,
expectant faces of easily recognizable Londoners,
They are going back after years of toil and hardship
finally rewarded with substantial success. Every one
of these men carry a picture of London in their
hearts. Every minute seems a day on the long journey
across the Atlantic But soon they will see once more
the gay night life on the Strand, mingle with the
crowds, rub elbow3 with their countrymen, join first
night audiences at theatres, tour tho city in clanking
tuxis, appease the gnawing soul-hunger with one more
walk around Piccadilly and a stroll through Leicester
Christmas and New Year in London! What
visions these exile*! soi)3 of England had conjured
up In the long, lean years before they wrested from
the soil their means of return. And now, to be there
again. Of course, it is only for a while. But they
are able to return to their respective places in the
scheme of affairs in their adopted country and work
witli increased enthusiasm to make their lands yield
the maximum. They are better citizens for they will
endeavour to make this Canada ihe staunchest and
most prosperous link in the British Empire,
Every prosperous former who returns to Great
Britain is the best advertisement that the Dominion
of Canada could possibly have. Every one of these Is
a booster, proving conclusively that men with tha
determination to work can and do win out in this
country. Every westerner is directly or indirectly, a
disciple of the creed that "Happiness Must Ba
Earned." i
Travellers who intended to reach the Old Country
for Christmas came on the Imperial special from tha
West in time tu board the Canadian Pacific liner*
"Metagama" and "Melita" at Saint John, N.B. Aboui
two hundred and fifty passengers crossed In time
to get the S.S, "Melita" on December 10, while three
hundred and fifty Canadians arrived in Saint John
for the S.S. "Metagama," sailing on December \\,
In these groups were passengers intended for various parts of tbe British Isles, one distinctive family
group being Mrs. George Patterson, of Vancouver,
with her four smiling Canadian-born children. Snap*
pod aboard the first Canadian Pacific holiday special
.ts the train passed through Winnipeg, Mrs. Patterson
>aid she was paying a visit to her native heath in
Scotland at Road Meeting, Carluke, Lanarkshire, for
the first time since she came to Canada, twelve years
The youngest member of the party, a little girl
in a checked gown, wanted to know what it was all
about. She confided in mother afterwards that she
liked photographers only they seemed to be altogether^
too "bossy." This indicates a fine career as a moving
picture star.
A magnificent silver dish, twenty
Inches in diameter, presented by
King Emmanuel of Portugal to the
famous explorer Vasca da Gama in
1499 in recognition of the lutter's
discovery of the sea route to India,
was recently on exhibition in the
■ windowu of the downtown offices of
the Canadian Pacific Hallway on St.
James street. ri'he di.*his now owned
hy ilenti Dupuis, graduate of the
University of Nancy, France, a
resident of Montreal,
The dish \o circular with a wide
border and h a beautiful specimen of
the most exquisite repousse work of
the celebrated European ..ilv^rsmiths.
In the centre >s admirably depicted In
practically every detail the quaint old
chip, the San Gabriel, which was
Da Gama'a flagship on his famous
voyage to India.
Around the figure of the ship are
striking impressions of wild beasts
and flowers. On a raised border of
silver around the vessel are two
inscriptions, barely visible to the
eye. The first, reads "Emmanuel le
Grand to Vasco de Gama, 14,99". The
second Inscription is; "Marquis Nizu-
da da Gama to M. Anne Duportul,
Commandant du Cygiie, 1340." Th:*
second inscription was placed there
when tha relic waa given to Commandant Duportal for saving the life
of the Marquis, u descendant of da
Vasca da Gama was called to the
Portuguese court and given an expedition to discover a sea passage to
the Indies. He was given the following Instructions by his king, "Go
south (uj far as there id water. A.:d
ivhen you have reached the edge of
the world, turn towards India which
we know i xlsta because we have made
land journeys there." On Ju!v 8,
1497  u  hefmeted,  powerful  figure
stood on hoard a vessel waving adieu
to Lisbon. Determination was depicted in tho powerful jaws. An iron
will wad evident in the steel-grey
eyas, Every motion, every movement
this mighty man made told of his high
resolve to do ws he had been commissioned by his king.
The Sun Gabriel rounded the Cape
of Good Hope after da Gama had
quailed a munlty of his rebellious
sailors, and reached the coast of
Malabar, the south-west corner of
India in May 14S8. On September 1,
1499 the vessel sailed proudly into
Lisbon to the accompaniment of loud
shouts from the huge crowd assembled to greet her and the heroic commander. It was in that year that da
Gama was awarded the historic silver
dish by a grateful monarch as an expression of esteem and regard from
an admiring court and a thunkful
Da Gama made another voyage \o,
India in 1602, planting Portuguese,
colonies at Mozambique and wther
places, and returned in loOH with a.
rich cargo. For this work he waa.
awarded a title and appointed admiral of the Portuguese navy. Some,
twenty-cue years later he made his,
last voyage to India. He fell ill on th*
way, died in Cochin, Indo-China, audi
wad buried on the Malabar coast
where he had cowed into submission a.

(Author of "Ferguson on cAuction 'Bridge'
One of the most difficult points of
auction bridge, as well as one of the
most interesting, is the proper bidding
of a two-suited hand; tnat is, a hand
that contains two suits of at least five
cards each, It istlicslroncest hand that
can bo held if played at the best suit of
the combined hands. Such a hand is
considered, on the average, one trick
better than the usual suit bid, and at
least t wo t ricks lietter than a no-trump
bi<l. This fact shows the importance of
the proper bidding of luch hands, in ur-
rief to arrive at the best bid of the com- \
billed hands. As de.ilcr, or befove partner h.is bid. if your hand is a. two
suiter," try for the oppuitunity to bid
both suits, provided, of course, they
.-re sufficiently strong to wSrrant an
original or forced bid. Asa general rule,
bid the higher Vi Iu '. ~\ lint, provided
it com. ins Bufiti I nt strength to warrant the bid. It ont, L1.. ii'.; lower valued
suit, and show the lumber valued euit
. i .11 -ul ur sul i>equ..r r tuund. In the
same way, always prefer, if possible,
the major suit to the minor.
The following hands illustrate the
principles just duKU*st.(J i.ad if you cm
figiue out the proper t.jd in each instance, you are doing wry we!!. In each
case, there is no score. If you. as dealer.
huld the following hands, what would
you bid? Compare youi analysis with

played the n<;e of spades which Z
trumped. How should he plan the play
of the hand? 7. should play the uvvce cf
hearts and when A pl.ijs the ten, Z
should stop to consider. There are now
only two hearts unaccounted for, the
king and the jack. If A has both, he is
bound to nuke a trick, no matter what
Z plays. If he has the. king and B the
jack, Z will lose a trick by playing the
ace. If A has the jack and B the kintt,
Z will win n trick by playing the ace.
In other words; the play of the ace of
hearts from Y's hnnd at trick three is
an absolute guess. Personally the writer
would play the ace although the play
of the queen would not be criticized.
From the hands given, the play of the
ace of hearts at trick three gives YZ
five odd. The rest of the play is easy
but should be worked out tor practice.

and pUn the play bo that he can win
the balance of the tricks against lb'
best- defense?
•J Answer to Problem No. II
The bidding nndB'sdouble practically
locate the remaining spades in li s hand
and Z should plan t lie play accordingly.
For that reason he should trump Y's
trick with a low spado In his own band.
lie should then lead a spade, winning
the trick in \ '■ h.uid with the aueen.
lie should then lead the king of nearts
and again trump in his own hand. He
should then lead another spade and
vin the t lick with thence in Y's hand.
I,c should then lead a dlarnohd from
Y's hand and trump in bis own hand.
Me has now led '.tumps twice and
trumped three times so that he has
left the king and ten of spades. He
should now lead three rounds of clubs,
winning the third round In Y's hand.
For the last two tricks, therefore, he
has the king ten of spades as a tenare
over B'S jack and live. It U a fine example of the so-cui'ed "grand coup,"
the trumping oi \ partner's winning
trick to shorten o« • trump holding, In

Sam Thompson suffered a slight
accident in the sawmill on Wednes- j
day afternoon. Sam was riding car- I
ringe when one of the saws broke,
and the flat side of one of the peices
struck him in the chest, inflicting a
large cut and bruising him badly over
the heart, next dropping and cutting
him again on the ankle, and knocking him unconscious. After a few
days rest Sam recovered nicely and
commenced work again on Monday
morning. Sam was decidedly lucky
in his accident for had the edge struck
him instead of the flat side, at the
speed the piece travelled he would
undoubtedly have been cut in two.

A bit: dance was held at the Mill
Hull, Yahk, on Saturday nijrht, in aid
of the Crippled Children of B. C.

filled, it being estimated that over a
hundred people were present. Nearly half this number was composed of
KinglMte and Kastport resident*,
who, fortunately for Yahk, can always be relied upon to patronize
nearly anything that is nut on here.
The music was supplied by the Creston Orchestra, consisting of three
musicians, one playing the piano, one
the violin, and one the drum and
cymbals combined. The dance was
a good success and enjoyed by all
present, the sum of thirty-seven dollars odd being realized for the above

this orchestra play at Yahk. Great
credit is due the residents of Kings-

mining here. Conditions had changed in other local industries, such as
lumbering, which probably meant
that mining was going to come more
to the fore. As for bock as 1896 he
had visited the Sullivan Mine, and
though it has since become one of
tho greatest in the world, it waa ot
tho time, in the opinion of those competent to judge, just us doubtful a
proposition ns any prospective mine
in the district ot the present time.
He personally was very optimistic as
to the future of mining, and said he
hod been successful to some extent in
his own ventures. If there was a
reasonable faith shown in the district,
there was no reason why mining
should not come into its own.
After referring briefly to the erection of the sample case of mineral
specimens which had been put up
on Baker Street, Mr. Santo made i
suggestion that u chest or case be pre
pared in which a smaller collection
of samples could bo collected, which
could be taken for exhibition to the
in the shape of a folder. Mr. Fink
estimated that eight thousand cars
hnd passed through tho city, carrying not less than thirty thousand
people, which indicated the growth
of the tourist business, ond the wear
and tear there was on the highways,
In considering this aspect of things,
Mr. Fink said he though that people
did not have enough confidence in
the district. So far as scenic attractions went, he was of the opinion that what was to be had in this
district was not at all inferior to
that  of  the   Banff  district.
Commenting on this report, the
president said that it wns owing
largely to the fact that there had
been u good response to the appeal
for subscriptions, that there hnd been
money on hand to carry on the undertakings of the board.
In accepting this report, hearty
thanks were tendered to the com
mittee   for  their  work.
For the entertainment committee
there was nothing to report beyond
that tendered the delegates at the
associated boards of trade conven
tion  here  last year.
Need for Road Improvement
For the roads and camp ground
committee, C. J. Little drew attention to the fact that the Cranbrook
district is the third largest revenue
producing district in the province,
and it was felt that not enough consideration was being given to the
maintenance of the muin roads in
this sccton. For this reason they
had been trying to get improvements effected, particularly between
Yahk nnd Moyie and on to Kngsgate.
The committee now had the promise
official duties.
Urge Support of Community Projects
T. R. Flett, as a member of the executive of the Agricultural Association, asked for the support of the
members of the board of trade individually for the fall fair. With the
support of the service clubs and the
people generally there could be no
question as to the 9uccess of the fair.
J. P. Fink stated it was the intention of the Rod ond Gun Club to extend their sphere of influence
throughout the district, nnd to this
end h wus planned to hold a meeting
in Kimberley on Friday of next week,
when it would be decided whether
Kimberley would launch a separate
club of their own, or lend u more decided support to the Cranbrook Rod
and Gun Club. He urged that a good
delegation go up from this city to
attend that meeting, as un evidenco
of u willingness to co-operntc.
G. J. Spreull also mentioned that
the Library Association hod u can-
vuss of the city in course of preparation, the object being to get a larger
membership and get more books on
the shelves of the library. He gave
some figures showing to what extent
the library is ut present being made
use of, und asked for the assistance
of all in making the effort us productive of results as possible. The time
was coming when Cranbrook would
have to have a good public library
as a city undertaking und supported
with u mill rute, but thut time was not
yet, he agreed.
This was all the business taken up
before the meeting adjourned.

oxpectcd that the work on the new
thought, equipped with drawers,
handles and wheels, and weighing
about 260 pounds, could be built for
about ?:I0 or $36, and if the board
thought fit to undertake this, he
would see to the gathering of the
In some discussion which took place
prior lo the adoption of this report,
it was brought out that Mr. N. A.
Wallinger had attended the mining
convention at Nelson last year as a
delegate from the local board, and
the district had been represented at
tho Spokane convention by A. G.
Langlcy, the district mining engineer.
Later in tho evenng the proposal advanced by Mr. Santo was referred to
the incoming executive.
Finances are Healthy
The annual financial .report was
read by M. A. Beale, the chairman
of that committee, and is given in
full   elsewhere    in    this    issue.    It
showed that a larger  amount had
been subscribed locally for the work
of the board, $1800 being raised by
subscriptions, with  a total revenue
from   all   sources   of   $2047.91.    A
bigger balance in hand was also being
carried forward to the coming year.
T. R. Flett, while stating that from
a committee point of view there was
little to report on, gave an interesting
talk on the agricultural conditions of
the dstrict, and gave it as his opinion
that there was a good  future for
forming in the district, if the right
type of people were encouraged to
settle here, and the trend of effort
was made towards dairying and hog
raising,  instead  of  grain growing.
He instanced several   developments
which were taking place which would
tend to encourage agricultural development along these lines, and told
of one instance where a rancher at
Edgewood had been making $1000
per year for supplies to the camps
during the time of construction of
the Bonff-Windermero road, and had
expected after that to do juBt as well,
Publicity Being Well Looked Ater
The report of J. P. Fink for the
publicity committee, was an  interesting one, showing how the major activity of the board had been carried
on.   He said that they had spent
something  like  $5000   in   the   past
In general district publicity, and it
was felt now that more effort should
be put into advertising the  Cranbrook district   in   particular.    During the past year they had received
a large quantity of literature from
the government and the C.P.R., including   300   copies   of   a   booklet,
"The Heart  of the  Selkirks," 600
copies   of   the   "Banff-Windermere
Road," 600 copies of "The Call of
the Untrodden Ways,"  1200 copies
of "Banff and District," as well as
2000    road    map.<    from    Calgary,
which had been placed at the dis
penal  of the  board  at about cost
price.   Two large signs relating lo
the tourist camp had been prepared,
and would this year be placed about
five miles east and west of the city,
and the arrow signs had also been
placed in the city directing tourists
to  the camp grounds.    Two thousand cars had   made   use   of   tha
camp grounds last year, giving a
revenue of about $1000.
Mr. Fink had on display a large
map of the red and blue trails passing through the district, which had
been in course of preparation for
some time. It measures about eight
feet by twelve, and will have on it
tho principal points of interest from
a scenic standpoint, each one illUB
trated wth photographs. These
views will include Smith Lake,
Moyie Lake, Premier Lake, Wasa
Lako, Klmborloy, Wild Horse Creek,
ate., and when completed the picture will be placed in the cookhouse
at the camp grounds, where it is
likely to arouse a good deal of interest Later it may be produced

some nasty bumps which temporarily stopped the game. Both bobbed
up serenely, however, und continued
the play. Mr. Ashton Powers, who
refcreed the game, performed his
duties   impartially.
Following the game the Cranbrook
girls entertained the visitors at the
Victoria to a chicken supper. Here
the game was replayed, drum sticks
and wish bones replacing the hockey
cudgels, and all felt in such a happy
mood that the blue was wiped out,
passing in ull directions being freely
indulged in, the Crunbrook girls en-
deuvoring, if they could not beat
them on the ice, to at least get even
on the hospitality score.
The teams were as follows:

road to Kimberley would be com
menccd this year, though just what
route it would follow was not known
This latter road, he felt, would be
of considerable benefit to Cranbrook,
Proposals were also being made for
treatment of the main roods entering the city, including a scheme for
planting trees alongside. The interests of the tourists were being look-
id after here, and it was also important to see that the roads were
also kept in us good shape as possible.
Election of Officers
When the business of the election
of officers was approached, there was
a little tangle threatened over a proposal to increase the executive from
eight to ten. Ths was finally voted
down after a good deal of discussion.
The following are the officers of the
board for the coming year:
President   W. H. Wilson
Vice-President   W. R. Grubbe
Executive Council—G. J. Spreull,
T. R. Flett, J. P. Fink, M. A. Beale,
J. F. Scott, W. S. Santo, C. J. Little,
A. Graham.
Auditors—T. M. Boberts and E.
Mr. Wilson wns at first reluctant
to allow his name to go up for election again as president, but there
were insistent demands that he reconsider this decision, and he finally
consented to stand agan.
Special Committees
Reporting for a special committee,
regarding the proposal now under
consideration, for an extension to the
Y.M.C.A. plant to house an up-to-date
gymnasium and swimming pool, J,
P. Fink said that orginal estimates
having proved too high, plans were
now being drawn up which could be
placed before the company for further consideration. The city council
had agreed to advance the cost of
these plans, and in about ten days it
was thought that there might be some
estimates arrived at Chat would put
the proposal in tangible form. The
request of the committee for an extension of time on this account was
therefore granted.
Speaking In this connection the
Mayor said that he thought, seeing
it would probably be too late to get
anything done this year, it ought to
be possible to make some arrangements at small cost whereby the use
of the swimming pool in the old
gymnasium could be had at small
Mr. Spreull said a committee
was working on a plan to facilitate
the quicker clearance of tourist cars
through the customs and immigration
offices at Kingsgate, but he had not
been acting on the committee long
enough to be able to render a definite
report of progress. A further extension of time was therefore granted the committee. Incidentally it
was stated that six thousand cars hnd
passed through Kingsgate last season.
To Hald Banquet and Recaption
A matter of considerable importance was introduced by Mr. Speull,
when he suggested that in view of
the honor which had been done to the
district by the naming of Mr. R. R.
Bruce as the new lleutenant-govfern-
or of B.C., the board of trade might
well extend to him some mark of
recognition, which might take the
form of a banquet and reception. He
had learned that the people of lnvermere and district were willing to fall
In with whatever plans the Cranbrook
board might make along these lines.
A resolution was passed instructing
the board to take steps to prepare for
Win 3-2 in Fast Game at
Arena Rink on Wednesday Evening
Before a large number of hockey
enthusiasts the All-Star ladles' hockey team of Fernie met a picked team
from the Crunbrook Ludies' hockey
clubs at the Arena Rink on Wednes
day night. The game was a return
one, the first being played in Fernie
recently nnd won by the Conl city
sextette by 2 goals to nothing. The
Fernie team was just home from their
trip to Banff where they met the best
teams In the west.
From start to finish of the game
there wus not a dull moment, the
ladies, a sseeins their custom, attending to their knitting all the time.
The first period started nwuy in a
business-like manner with Fernie
pressing hard, it being soon evident
to the Cranbrook crowd thut the visitors were stck handlers of the first
order. Play swayed from end to end
for o time, when Miss Dal Schagel,
the star defence player of the Fernie
team came down the ice and while
Miss Drummond relieved, the puck
rebounded from Miss Syle's stick The
first period thus ended with the
score 1 to 0 in favor of Fernie, Soon
after the stort of the second period
Miss Greaves secured the puck on a
check near centre ice and stack
handling her way up the ice scored
Cranbrook's first goal, the puck
glancing in from a defence player's
stick, its slow roll seeming to fool
the crack Fernie goal keeper. With
the score a tie, play became faster.
The Fernie aggregation made a determined effort to. again secure the
lead with the result that after many
repented rushes by them which were
voliently foiled by the Slye-Ryde de-
fence, Mrs. Steeves got one past Miss
Drummond. After five minutes
more piny Miss Greaves again scored
putting Fernie to the good when the
period ended.
Fernie Hald Their Lead
In the third period alone the fans
got their money's worth ns It was
brimful of excitement, Fernie making
determined onslaught on Cranbrook's goal. For a short period they
succeeded in drawing out the Cranbrook defence and passing them
with their combination play, Miss
Drummond was called upon to make
saves from all angles from the fast
Fernie shooters, within three minutes
staving off five shots that were dead
on. Miss Slye soon got on to the
Fernie game and gritting her teeth
put in some real Stanley cup defence
work. Time and again she would
stop fast Fernie forwards, securing
the puck and feeding the forwards
with short dashes up the ice. She
was veil supported by Miss Ryde.
With about three minutes to go
Miss Godderis aecurcd the puck
from Miss Burton about centre ice
und after a short dash, made u
beautiful shot which bulged the nets
for a clean gonl, forming a fitting
climnx for the brillant gome which
she hud put up all through the
match. The official final score was
three to two. A disputed goal by
Fernie wns disallowed as it wns put
in after the bell had rung for a face
Teams Show Up Well
With regard to the other Cran
brook players not mentioned above
all are deserving of much credit for
the gomes they put up. Miss Woodman and Miss Moir of the Canucks

here with her son, Mrs. Riley left for
her home at Queens Bay on Saturday. While in our midst, Mrs. Riley
made hosts of friends.
A skating party in touch with St.
Valentines Day was featured at the
home of Mr. and Mrs. Roy Burch,
complimenting our young folk, on
Saturday evening, the 13th. Skating
was in order during the early hours
of the evening, followed by a generous treat to coffee nnd doughnuts at
the home of Miss Pearson. Again,
after gathering at the home of Mr.
and Mrs. Burch, dancing, singing and
various games were enjoyed. Jim
Russell rendered several good songs.
Misses A. Desaulniers and Sadie
Whitehead were the pianists of the
evening, with Bunny in good time
with his drums. After cutting hearts
for partners, every guest was seated
to a most enticing spread by the glow
of lighted candles.

parliament wns finally fixed on by
a method of pooling the travelling
expenses, which allowed those from
a distance from the coast to attend
at a very treasonable figure. The
boys were given a very enjoyable
time while at the provincial capital,
nnd everyone heaving the report Riven of the proceedings both inside the
"house" and outside of it, could not
be otherwise Hum Impressed with a
sense of its usefulness In encouraging
a particularly useful type of citizenship,
What The Parliament Did
Uyron Haynes dealt more particularly with tho nature oE the measures
considered by tho boys' parliament,
and its progress from day to day.
Among the measures passed was one
suggesting the formation of a body
to act in the nature of a senate in
relation to the parliament, and outlining the duties expected of such a
body. Another called for the
institution of a "Mother-and-Son"
week, in conjunction with Mothers'
Day, which is now widely observed.
The organization and work of the
boys' parliament was defined by the
| wording of another measure, and a
survey of conditions as to boys' work,
{and the possibilities of instituting
the Tuxis work in places where it
was not yet established, formed the
basis of other resolutions introduced.
District camps were advocated also,
possibly lending later to dominion
conferences, but this latter cannot
lie brought about this year, it has
' been learned. One resolution which
did  not   pass  was  read  by  Byron
Haynes. It set forth that Sunday
jports which did not actually conflict with Sunday services might be
consdered by the boys as not interfering with the Tuxis ideals of
Sunday observance. The "buy a
bond" campaign for the financial advancement of both the girl's and boys'
work was also explained more fully.
Part of these funds would go towards
Jthe provision of a travelling secretary,
and part this year towards tbe expenses of sending a B.C. representative to
the international gathering spoken
of previously. How Tuxis work was
growing was clearly shown in figures
given, showing that there are now
212 groups at work in the province,
with a membership of 2787 boys und
representing 12!) churches, a big increase from the previous year. Both
boys were given very hearty applause ut the conclusion of their ad
dresses, and subsequent speakers
made reference to the splendidly
comprehensive    reports   which    the
buys had  been  able to give.
Important   Details   of   Life
Mr. G. •!. Spreull was the first of
I the grown up speakers and after some
humorous references in his opening
remarks and congratulations to tbe
boys who had just spoken, he passed
on some earnest advice, more especially to the grown-ups, in regard to
[the importance of some details of
daily business life, which are apt to
be overlooked. He referred particularly to tbe habit so easily formed of
attaching Insufficient importance to
the keeping of appointments. This
failing  he   characterized   as   nothing
| less  than   theft—theft  of  someone's
itime, often quite valuable. When
men arc appointed to serve on committees or similar duties in the com
munity, Mr. spreull considered that[change of viewpoints could not but
they h
than il
Id put forth nothing less j be of immense value iu unifying the
besl efforts in thai behalf., aims and ideals of boys' lives all over
ther course, he stated, would the world. Had such been possible
years ago it was quite likely that the
idea of domination which had been
instilled into the minds of the youth
of Germany would not have taken
such a firm hold, so that the clash of
arms ten years ago might have been
avoided. Mr, Cox also explained fur-
ther the nature of the boys' bond
campaign now being carried on, by
accomplishing. Mr. Cox is a} wHich means money for carrying on
the Tuxis programs is raised. He
outlined the methods whereby the
boys at bis home town of Salmon Arm
hud far out reached their objective.
He told of evidences that Tuxis work
is proving worth while, the starting
of the work iu some small towns hav-
g  proved   the   means  of  creating
lead the boys  t
"It did not matter much, because dad
did it".
Give   Boy.   R\pM   Ideali
Mr. Cox of Salmon Ann was the
next sp aker, and after congratulating the boys who had poken, he emphasized the importance of the boys'
parliament, showing the good work
il w
boys' leader of much experience.
He stated he considered Mh- coming world boy.-' conference to 1"' held
at HeltngforSj Finland, would be an
international gathering of great importance. It would bring out the different   ideas   of   boys   in   relation   to
their problems mot with under dlf-

A  Boys'  Work  Specialist
Mr, Taylor Statten,
principal speaker of
proved himself thoroug
discussing boys' work i
ly discernible that hi
touched upon all phaj
character, and thai he
matter from a psycolo
which a greater Impri
to be made. Me opei

of tbe boy
■ ■!■ with the
cal angle, by
Biorj is likely
■ 1 his address
which have
under the di-
aders. to de
termine the factors which present the
greatest appeal in camp life to boys.
He instanced the camp singing, and
told how negro folk son::- bad been
by far tbe most popular and most in
favor with the boys when they were
n camp.    He succeeded, much to the
enjoyment   of  the  boys,   in  getting
the dads present to lay aside some of
their customary dignity long enough
to enter heartily into a few of the
songs  which be gave,  the  most of
them accompanied by appropriate, if
nonsensical,  actions.    Mr.   Sutton's
method of developing the boys' character may be outlined briefly as following four main channels—positive
suggestion,   faith,   co-operation   and
ppreciation. These suggested a new
method of boy training which promised different results than had hitherto
been achieved.    Mr. Statten analyzed the relationship of   the   normal
family, showing bow children In their
young days are more dependent upon
their   mother.    But   later   years,  he
showed,  brought  change-,    and   the
boy's father becomes tbe paramount
consideration   in   his   life.    In   their
early  teens, some  boys   showed this
development so strongly that it appeared to take the form of an intense
Jesire to avoid all feminine company,
which Mr. Statten humorously pointed out, they usually got over. He illustrated his points by numerous anecdotes and experiences from bis own
work and his pointed illustrations of
tbe truth.- be sought to convey were
such as could not fail to deepen the
conviction his hearers formed, that
Mr. Statten was no mere dabbler in
the boys' work but was       : Mined to
getting to the heart  of thing?.    He
characterized tbe new way of bringing up boys as the "Jesus way" translated   into   modern   conditions,   this
opening up the way for fourfold development, just as It had bien recorded of their Pattern, that He had gone
on " growing in wisdom and stature,
and Increasing in favor with God and
man.   "He emphasized the necessity
for maintaining the "gang" instinct
which all boys have, and for carrying
on   the   development   of   character
along these lines,    it waa the Tuxis
ideal to preserve the boys in their
gangs and to see that these gangs
have their activities properly directed, so that the baser aims which so
often    make    themselves    apparent
would be crowded out by something
more   worth   while.       Mr.   Statten
gave many Instances of what he called  one-sided  development  which  he
had met with in  the course of his
experience   in his   big  annual   cajnp
which   he   conducted  near  Toronto,
and he showed how sometimes the
policy of repressing a boy's natural
instinct for companionship, that is,
keeping them largely to themselves,
often  brings  results  which  are far
from desirable-. Mr. Station's address,
which  occupied  the   biggest  part of
an  hour was  extremely  interesting,
and those who heard it, felt they saw
new light on what is, after all, one
of the big problems of these times.
Appreciation  for Mr.  Statten's   address was shown very unmistakably
at its close.
Cheer* For Tbe Ladies
The ladies came in for some complimentary remark-; on tha manner
in which they had provided the banquet and responding to the cheers
which were given, Mrs. VY. B. Mc-
Farlane said it had been a pleasure
for the ladies to undertake the work
and they felt that much benefit was
going to accrue from Mr. .St at ten's
Further meetings were held in connection with the consideration of the
Tuxis program on Saturday morning
in the Baptist Church, and Saturday
afternoon in the United Church.    A
very  frank discussion took place as
to   the   possibility   of   extending  the
Tuxis work here, but it was found
that with the boy scouts well established  in the Anglican, United and
Presbyterian churches it   would   be
difficult   to  successfully   form   any
further groups.    At present the Baptist Church conducts both Trail Rangers and Tuxis Square groups in con-
neciton   with   their   Sunday   School
while   at   the   Presbyterian   Church
there is a group of Trail Bangers.

you—You cannot help but know,
even from the short time thut you
have lived in Crater City, that I'm
person there under a cloud of .secrecy and mystery—"
Caroline had all the woman i
love's lack of jeulous curiosity; whic!
sprang from the keenly negative,
matter-of-fact philosophy as old as
the sex that it would be better for
her peace of mind if she learned no
thing more about him than she already knew; then, what she did not
know would not worry her. She
leaned close to him, smiling, and
patted u warning finger on his lips.
There now, there is no mystery
to me except the miraculous mystery
of our youth and love. For the
rest, I'm not interested in any of
Crater City's pet mysteries. But
it's a wonder most of the cats there
aren't dead, if curiosity is as deadly
the tabbies as tradition would
have  us believe!"
This generonity of spirit instead
of having the intended effect of reas-
uring him, only served to make him
unhappy and miserable, stubbornly
determined to go through with hi:
revelations. This was in his period
of transition frpm hia elevated mood
back to his oppressed level of th"
sleepless night, and if he had been
able to have his way a middle ground
might have been attained by their
newly confessed love,
But Caroline, thinking that she
was acting for the best in saving
Bob whatever pains or heart-throbs
might be involved in the explanation
he wanted to make, refused steadfastly to hear it. Before the matter
could be urgued tP a conclusion,
udden and startling Interruption
came in the form of an ear-splitting
automobile siren on the road that
ran on the other side of the grove,
about a hundred yards from the
thickly-shrubbed cliff edge where
Caroline and Bob were seated.
Because this was an unfrequented
road at best, traversed only occasionally by mountaineers' flivvers,
ond because tbe noise was so obviously different from the usual automobile horn and so plainly an alarm
signal of some sort, it brought the
lovers to their feet.
Caroline, in terror, shrank into
the arms of Bob, who said excitedly:
"That's the police patrol from
town or I miss my guess! You
know, they're transferring prisoners
at the rate of a single carload a day
from the old state jail to the new
penitentiary up the line. There's
been a prison coach attached to the
westbound Limited each night for
several nights past. One was laid up
in the yards this morning. I wonder—"
They exchanged significant looks,
while the siren continued to draw
closer and despoil the quiet mountain glen with its raucous warning.
Caroline clung even closer to Bob,
on unaware claim for a mate's pro-
tecton; and Bob, thrilling to the
warm contact of her young body,
which quivered against him as a
captive bird might in a man's clenched fist, felt a vast possessiveness—
felt that he could successfully fight
off a whole carload of escaped desperadoes, if necessary, to save her.
He shot an arm around her shoulder and stood alertly with his other
fist doubled and ready when there
came a crashng In the bushes nearby,
and loud voices. Three uniformed
policemen, with sowed off shotguns,
brokje through and confronted them
"Seen anyone—a man in convict
"No!" said Bob calmly.      "Why,
what's the matter?"
"Matter enough if you stumbled
into him!" said one cop in tones that
denoted  respect for the  reputation
of his quarry.   "The most dangerous
und vicious criminal who's ever been
in the State bullpen escaped from the
transfer car.    We've traced him to
this  vicinity.     I'd   advise   you,  my
friend, first of all to clear out of
this  neighborhood, und secondly  to
hold your peace if you should bump
into him.    He's bud medicine at any
time—but by now he's hungry, desperate—and a damn sight more dangerous than a dozen cat amounts!"
The police officers scoured on.
Caroline,  upsot and  with   nerves
overwrought    from    the    incessant
shrieking of the siren,  insisted on
starting down from the hill nt once
the picnic mood was gone from her
for the time being.       Boh, though
assuring her that it was silly to be
alarmed, humored her.
They hod gone but a short distance down the shrub-massed cliff
path, though the siren and the shouting of the skirmishing policemen were
already fainter as they searched out
a new section on the wooded summit
above, when like a weird and menacing jack-in-thje-box a striped and
shackled figure uprose from a bush
and stood leering In their path.
"Bob Wilson, take me oath if It
ain't—an' quite respectable looking!"
Bob could not refrain a horrified
recoil from the shock of recognition.
"Spike I"
"Ain't you clever to guess it!"
Caroline, meanwhile, a sliflcd
screum dissolving in her throat as
she heard the familiarity and equality in the greeting of this vicious
looking criminal for Bob—her Bob
—felt a sick bewilderment and disgust; it must be true, then, that there
was something sordid and bad in
Bob's past when its associations had
been so base and unlovely.
Bob, looking at her in that tense,
soul-stripping moment, read the con-
crete suspicions and distrust dawning
in her eyes, and felt a rush of stub-
bornness at the injustice of Fate that
was robbing him of the carefully
hoarded strength of his exile. First
Jane—now Spike. Spike, who had
read—thut poster 1 .j
Bob stared at Spike again, dully
curious. i
"I want yuh to help me, see!"
growled Spike. "Hide me till thuh
lousey bulls git OUten here—" The |
sounds of the pursuing party seemed
to be growing nearer again, This
fact, coupled with Bob's hesitation,
inflamed Spike, who shook his steel
clow threntetily under Bob's white
"Hide me, Wilson—or I'll tell de
lady friend about dat poster—"
Further hesitation on Bob's part;
then, wetting his lips, he said evenly:
"Tell and be damned to you!"
The beast in Spike raged ut this
defiance, He leaped close to Caroline before Bob, taken off his guard,
could interfere—tore her dress from
her shoulders with his human hand
and set the rapier point of his steel
hand against her white breast,
"Promise you'll help me, or I'll
rip her open!" he yelled red-eyed,
at Bob.
Caroline was frozon with terror
In her tracks—mouth open and eyes
storting as she looked at and shrank
from the prick of the deadly claw.
Bob, paralyzed, looked on in terror
not less than her own.
But his return to full possession
of his faculties, under the lash of
tragic necessity, was lightning fast.
He leaped forward and struck out
simultaneously. His left fist reached
its mark on Spike's jaw at almost
the precise instant that his right
hand, with athletic continuity of motion, pushed Caroline backwards out
of harmful contact with the falling
desperado's spike.
Spike was not knocked out. He
hud barely touched the ground br-
fore with u tigerish squirm he flung
his muscular leg around in such a
way that it snipped Bob's legs from
under him, crumpling him to the
ground beside Spike, who came to
instant grips with him.
Bob knew Spike's method of old.
He remembered the horror that be
had been filled with upon the occasion of* his first meeting with
Spike, when he had reflected upon
the possibilities of that steel claw as
a weapon. Now, therefore, he instinctively grabbed for the spike.
And not a moment too soon, for it
came within a hair of slithering his
The fight became a thrashing melee, Spike fought with the insane
courage and cruelty of a maddened
dog; Bob remained chiefly on the
defensive, guarding his eyes, his
throat, his heart from frantic jnb-
bings of the steel hand. Now and
again, Bob was able to get in a telling smash against Spike's face. But
Spike met Bob on terms of equal
strength, and had the advantages of
his frightful claw and of experience
in the dirtier points of rough ond
tumble fighting, gained in many a
low barroom and rough tracksldc
Bob soon realized that he was face
to face with a fight for his life.
Caroline, with a suddenly discovered
courage standing her in good stead
as she witnessed the fight of her
man for his very life, moved back
and forth with the thrashing bodies
as they rolled and tumbled around,
gouging up the rocky turf.
At every chance she seized Spike,
disregarding the bock lashes of his
flailing steel hand, and tried to pull
him away from Bob—giving Bob
every aid and advantage possible to
enable him to get in a vital blow.
She was so engaged when several
members of the police posse rushed
Into the scene and made short work
<'f jerking Spike to his feet, handcuffing him, and punching him into
subjection under the threat of their
murderously shortened shotguns,
Bob got to his feet unsteadily.
"You win, bo—but it's my turn
next time!" snarled Spike over his
shoulder. "Hell, you're wanted by
the police yourself—"

The mean invested assets of the

0,41 per cent—a remarkable showing
iu view of the downward tendencies

factors in producing this gratifying
cifisult was an increase in the dividends paid by some corporations in
which the company has substantial

The wise selection of investments,
which hns marked the policy of the
company is also shown in the remarkable increase in the market value of
its securities, For many years the
Sun Life has specialized in long term

stocks of outstanding corporations in
both Canada and the United States.
It is now reaping the reward of that

Among the many excellent speeches made in the house bhls last week
we are glad to read that of Mr. "Bil-
lly" Esllng, the member for the neighboring constituency of West Kooteri-
Whilo generally following somewhat orthodox lines he struck one or
two new notes, which for some reason or other, have not been much
stressed in the debate, and altogether
he created what is described as a
favorable impression in the House.
He pictured the somewhat peculiar
position of the Premier, McKenzie
King, urging electors to support a
Farmer-Labor - Progressive-Independent candidate in October, while in
February the same premier wns out
fighting   a   Progressive-Independent

Mr. Ksling reminded us all—I fear
we had all forgotten the point—of
that necessary and most vital piece
of legislation which was frequently
advocated from Liberal platforms
during the October campaign, namely
the reform of the senate. And now
that we are reminded of it, it was
one of much required legislation advanced in McKenzie King's four
point platform. We don't remember reading of it in the speech from
the throne last month either.
• » * *
What about that conference of the
provincial premiers which we were
told last October was going to be convened for the purpose of senate reform. Mr. Ksling in his speech suggests that probably this convention
will be deferred until such times as
there are more Liberal premiers than
at present. We fellows wonder how
long we will have to wait for Senate reform under these conditions.
! We have a suspicion that the que
tion has been deferred until such
times as the possibility of there be
ing no such thing us a safe seat is
proven. A seat in the senate would
be the next best thing tu a scat in
the House for a man with lots of gall.

Deadlock seems to be the situation
in the House today. The discision
to adjourn has been made, but the
government has no means of carrying
out that decision. True, it has the
much abhored implement of closure,
which at a pinch could be used with
effect, but have they the courage to
apply it. The old time Montrose
I must have had a situation such as
this in his mind when he said:
"He cither fears his  fate   too
Or his deserts are small,
Who fears to put it to the touch
To gain or lose it all."
