3760 pupils tried the exams compareil
with 3748 of last year, but this year

On Sunday last M. Graham and P.
McLoughlin met for the final for the
Stevens Shield, with the result that
Graham swept everything before him,
and won In straight Bets, tj-0, 6-0, 6-1.
Tliis i-- the third year in succession
that Graham hns won the shield and
he is without doubt the best player
in the district, having a slight edge
ovcr his brother Tom.
McLoughlin is no match for Graham
when tho latter is playing at top form
as uijown  by the result of Sunday's
match.   Oraham lias a large assort*
ment of strokes which permit him to '
return   balls   from   practically    any
angle,   the   "chop"  stroke   being   his
favorite,    Graham's chop just grazes
the net and when hitting the court has
practically no chance, thus making a
"lob"  return.    Very difficult as  McLoughlin  soon   became  aware of  on
Sunday.     But   in   spite   of  Graham's
excellent   form,    the    scores  of  the
match   are  very  misleading,   for   although he had a decided edge on the
play it was not as great as the score
i indicates.
i The tournament was played in a
very efficient manner, there being
only one default in the entire schedule. The next competition will be
that of the Butter's Cup, entries for
which were called some time ago, and
if a schedule Is not drawn up iu the ■
near future it will be too late, as the i
rainy season will soon be commencing, The Butler's Cup tournament is
open to all players in the district.

FRIDAY,   SEPTEMBER   10,   1927
NO man really understands tho value of a dol-1
lar until he has worked hard to obtain!
one.   We could point out scores of city i
boys who have become  miserable  spendthrifts
from the lack of just such knowledge.   Their I
lathers were more or less wealthy, but the sons!
were not put into the oilice or mill or shop, and;
made  fairly  to earn  their   money   by tiresome!
labor, either physical or mental; they bore no j
responsibility,  and  never   learned   how  money'
was fairly and honorably earned, and, of course,
never knew its   proper   use.    All young people
should be taught the full value of money—how to,
save and how lo spend it.   lf born to a heritage!
of wealth, they should be taught that its posses-'
sion brings greater responsibilities; and its pro-
per management, when they grow up, will bring
even a heavier tax on their mental and moral i
powers and [acuities than would the earning of
a livelihood.   They should be taught that work is!
honorable, and that idleness is a disgrace.
HIS books! They were home, family, friends,
food, light, life!    Even as a boy he had
worshipped the muse, and, like a true lover,
had endured the cold and famine and rags in her
adored service.
Crippled, and old, and weary he sat in the little
corner bookstore,  surrounded  by  castaways  in
print, torn, soiled and unregarded, reading, reading all the day and far into the night, forgetful
of the world, and by all men forgot.    Over his
head, packing the dusty shelves and crowding
each other close to the low, grimy ceiling were {
his  friends, the books.    Books   that   even  the
happy and the fortunate had declared to be the!
best friends of all-
Crouched over some treasure rescued from the
hands of ignominious fate, he scarcely moved
from dawn to dusk except to clear the mist from '
his great owl-like glasses, or when some hateful
buyer intruded upon him and threatened to carry
away one of his children. •
The day was dull and chilly. The feebly-fed
blaze in the rusty stove had died of inanition, but
curled up in a corner of the bench below the window the old man was oblivious of all. Deep in
oblivion, wandering in a mysterious land, led by
the spirit of the German metaphysician whose
words he followed half-consciously.
Suddenly, the warped outer door banged sharply, a rush of rain and frosty air penetrated the
inner room, and looking up the old man Stared
w rat h fully at the intruder, a ragged half-grown
boy, who threw down before him a slender book
in a faded cover. "Gimme ten cents for it, won't
vili?" he said, wheedingly. The old man took up
the meager volume with trembling hands that
could scarcely open to the yellowing title-page.
1'oems by tlelvitious Power.
Helvitius Power, the stilted name that he had
so proudly chosen. The name chosen with such
boyish pride that was to conceal and yet reveal
his identity to the great, busy whirly world, that
was to appear in august catalogues, perhaps
even to be whispered on the slopes of Parnassus!
The name that he had hoped and feared and
prayed for in the watches of long winter nights,
whose syllables lovingly repeated and warmed
him as with fire, and whose anticipated triumphs
had cheered him as with wine.
"Aint no good?" said the boy, who watched
him furtively and anxiously.
A mortal pang pierced the old man to the
heart. It was true, what this rough stripling
hinted. All that life and love had promised, all
the golden illusions and dreams of his non-returning youth, all his past, his present, his future
lay between the covers of that unregarded book.
He tossed it from him in bitter self-scorn. Then,
in a sudden revulsion of feeling, he snatched it
fiercely, pressing it to his heart, with one burning hand, while with the other he pressed his last
bit of silver into the boy's Angers and thrust him
into the street.
Chuckling, the boy tossed thc coin high into
the air, and caught it dexterously.
"What a bloomin' chump!" he said-

When the pulpits of this country all speak the

Assiniboine--the Greatest Achievement
of the Trail Riders
to It arc made more stringent. Vie
who would hunt must, ae in ull other
brunches of sport, learn "to play the
game." Hunting is u sport that
Bhould (-all out the hest that is in a
man. He must not only familiarize
himself with the ground which he
covers, but he must note the direction
of the wind as he stalks his prey. His
powers of observation are developed
:is he guides himself by the sun or
the stars or some outstanding landmark. He learns the value of patience as he wafts his opportunity over
long hours. He steels himself against
disappointment as his quarry, at the
critical moment of taking aim, disappears from view. He laughs at his
failures, and takes a legitimate pride
in his success. He notes the habits
of animals and birds, and is always
learning something which he did not
know before. The hunter is a student
of nature, and as such he creates
within himself the true sporting
spirit. The well wishes of all will
follow him as he goes out with his rifle ibis weapon, coupled with the hope
that no accidents will occur to mar the
pleasure which is his natural due.
Sport again in all its branches, has
a direct influence ou the developing
of what Is known as the "Community
Spirit." The man whose work takes
him undergiound for six days in the
week, naturally longs to make the
most of the open air and the fine
days as does any one who follows a
sedentary occupation, when he gels
the chance to do so. Any able bodied
girl or boy Is attracted to the sport.
II is their outlet for "letting off steam"
It is the counter attraction to getting
Into mischief, and it is the medium
by  which brawn and muscle are developed.    No nation or city can progress unless  it lakes  an  interest in
sport.    The Romans and the Ureei;.**.
of old developed it to a high degree,
and in these days we recognize it as
a means of promoting an international   spirit  and   of  drawing   countries
closer together,    ll is the same in a
city.    By  its  means  all  should   lie
drawn   in   contact   with   each   other.
Who does not l'cel a glow of pride lu
a   football   team   that   wins   ils   way
through   a   season   lo   championship
honors?   Who does not feel proud of
the school as its athletes return with
their   cups   and   their   medals   after
•(some   strenuous   tield   clay   in   competition  with other schools?    The interests of all arc mutual in  tliis ro-
j sped,    lt may or mny not be a true
I criticism that nil in Cumberland do
i not  take  thc  Interest   in   sport  that
tbey should do.   To some extent Mie
writer does not feel guillless in thh
respect, and to some exlent again lhe
majority of dimvh going people are
! not guiltless either.   This is no place
I in   which   to   argue   the   "pro"   and
"cons"   about     the    aquatic    sports
I which were held lasl Sunday at Pun-
[Hedge  Lake.    To  argue  heatedly  on
] the matter  would be to bring about
just   the  very  opposite  of  what  one
would desire, and that is the fostering
of the "Community Spirit," through
the medium of sport. But the writer
does not believe that the practice of
holding organized sports on a Sunday
will he a means of promoting that
"esprit de corps" which ia so essential to the welfare of a community,
neither does he believe that It is the
intention of those who love sport to
make tlie practice a permanent one.
It just so happened happened last Sun
day, and it Is well to leave It at thai..
But there is the urge to church people to take a greater interest in sport
than has been done hitherto, for ln so
doing ihey will not only show their
sympathy with those who love it ln
varied branches but they wlll also be
throwing in the weight of their in-
Nuance to make it a means ot still
furthering the Community Spirit
which means so much to the progress
of ihe cily. "Team play," In which
all try to work together, is a splendid tiling, aud with church going people and non church going people pulling together In the matter of sport,
there Is every reason to look forward
lo many bright and prosperous pages

KVIount Assiniboine, one of th,* most
magnificent peaks in all the
Canadian Rockies, has been definitely placed on the tourist map as a
•result of the recent annual oxpedl*
tion of the Trail Riders, who have
just completed their most ambitious
The Assiniboinc district is considered by the few that have visited
it, to surpass in beauty anything* in
the mountains. The mountain itself, which is frequently referred to
aa the "Mntterhorn of thc Canadian
Rockies" towers many thousand feet
above the surrounding alps and
little lakes which aro set like jewels
among the hill:!. It was discovered
less than two score years ago, but
has only been known heretofore to
tho more adventurous mountaineers.
This year's Trail Ride has proved
that Assiniboine and the wonderful
country surrounding it, is accessible
to almost anyone.
The Riders, who left Banff on
August fourth on the highest, longest and most interesting ride in the
history of their organization, broke
new trails into an almost unknown
country. Tho route they took has
been unuaed for more than twenty
[ years and li,'s over a pass '.i.OIXI feet
high which Iiad been crossed by very
few people ind no women. The first
camp wa* made on Brewster Creek
and the next day's ride was taken
over a pass 11,0111) feet in height on
a trail wliieh wan specially re-cut
this year for the annua] Trail Ride
by the Commissioner of Parks. On
their way to Assiniboine which was
reached on the evening of the second
day the Riders travelled well-above
the timber line.
At tho very foot ol Assiniboine's
mighty glacier on the shores of the
sapphire l.ako Magog, they made
their second c imp, where they wore
received by tlie Marquis D'Albizzi
who hus opened up a new Dude
Ranch at Assiniboine, and who catered for the Trail Riders during their
stay thero. Tlie stay lasted two
days, while the Riders explored the
.surrounding country; arti."ts hied
themselves to tlie heights with their
easels; the energetic essayed the
lower slopes of Mount Assiniboine;
while others contented themselves
with glimpses nf lake and glacier
from lower levels.
The return route lay through the
wild and weird monoliths of the
Valley of the Rocks, a barren deio-

late area in which the only sign o*.
life is the occasional shrill whistl*
of a startled marmot, and over another high pass up a tortuous 3.1I0D
foot ascent From this pass, the
trail ran through mountain uplands
covered with meadow grass and dotted with a profusion of Alpine flow,
ers. High Citadel ['ass is the name
of this plateau which lies high almva
many minor and is completely sur.
rounded by major peaks.
Thc climax of the trip was tho
Pow-Wow held at Sunshine Camp on
the last night of the Ride. The
Riders gathered around the camp
fire in Sun Dance Tepee which had
been decorated with fantastic Indian drnwings. Guide? in theii
woolly chaps and colored kerchiefs,
famous mountaineers, artists, writers, professional men and society
women from tliis continent and the
old country joined in singing Trail
Riders' songs.

Winnipeg. Sept. 14.—The "conflict"
between the imported Hungarian partridge antl the native Prairie Chicken
In    Saskatchewan    Is  being  closely
watched   by  provincial  government
authorities and there is much diversity of opinion as to whether the newcomer is likely to dispossess the native of its nesting places according to
a report from the Game Commissioner
of that province, received by E. G.
Poole, Fish and Game representative
of the Canadian National Railways at
Montreal. At the same time, it will
be of interest to sportsmen everywhere to learn tliat an open season
on these birds has been declared, corresponding with that for prairie chicken. This allows shooting during the
entire month of October, this ye.ir,
with a bag limit of 10 birds per day;
30 in a season.
The report states that there is undoubted evidence of continued Increase in tlle number of Hungarians
and also of their extended area nf
occupation. Public opinion regarding
thc desirability of the newcomers Is
still divided, Many people believe
they are guilty of repeated violence
