Felixes played a steady game aa.

The nexl game nnd the main eve.it
was lhe play-oft game In the intermediate "A* class between Ladyamfih
Rose Buds and Cumberland Ex-High,
the former winning 25-18, The game
waa faHt and the score close for the
.entire forty minutes and at no stage
.could either learn afford to relax. Bx-
Hlgh were llrst to score, and Ladysmith counted right after on a free
throw, jumping Into the lead on a
field basket a few minutes later which
they maintained for the rest of the
game. The play was exceptional!.,
iost and the combination a treat to
watch; Ladysmlth using the low onc-
.bounce pass while Cumberland used
a short shoulder-high puss. At times
tbe Ladysmlth guards would dribble
the full length of the floor before passing or shooting and tbe hall would
■come back again at the .same rapid
pace as one of tho local forwards
gained posessiou. One of tho outstanding features of the game was the
splendid guarding by .McKarland aud
McFarlane for the Kx-lllgh, who were
always a source of worry to the opposing TorwanlH. Tha writer considered It a bad move when G. Brown
took the place of McFarland ln tbe
last five or six minutes of tho game
as It was Impossible Tor Brown to get
the run of play hefore the dual whistle
and gave Ladysmlth the close-in shots
which they had been working for all
evening, resulting ln the scoring of
(our baskets.
Taking the game as a whole, Ladysmlth fully deserved the win as they
were more finished players but if thu
Ex-High play together again next)
year ft will take a better team than
Ladysmlth Hose Buds to stop them.
Mr. Kelly, the official referee, attracted nearly as much attention as
the teams by his splendid refereotng
and capacity of not overlooking any
fouls. The cleaness of the game was
prlnclpaly due to .Mr. Kelly.
The players for Kx-lllgh were H.
Watson and J. Hill forwards, M. Con-

After the games refreshments wero
served to the players which wore

WHETHER or not the medical profession of
Canada are capable of bringing to the people
of Canada a high standard of medical practice is something which is of vital interest to
every Canadian. To most of us, there comes a
time when our lives or those of our loved ones are
literally placed in the hands of one member of
the medical profession. Day by day, we are dependent upon the profession for protection from
Our Canadian universities provide for the education of those entering into the profession, and it
can be saiil with confidence that no country possesses better medical schools than does Canada.
Medical education is not completed with the
obtaining of a degree and a license to practise.
The physician must remain a student for his

an article with its writer, because of the feeling that even a few minutes' conversation would
make the whole matter more clear.
In order to further the desirable end of keeping
the practising profession abreast of the times,
and in order to aid the individual members of the
profession in their effort to do this, the Canadian
Medical Association has carried on post-graduate
educational work. The merit of their plan is that
instead of attempting to bring the busy practitioner into a large centre for this post graduate
work, it is taken to him by the Association.
This is done by sending out, all over the country
wherever a small or a large group of medical men
may come together, several speakers who generally travel as a team and who have been selected
by the local group as thu ones whom they desire
to hear, and with whom they wish to discuss some
phase of medicine.
This work has grown because the profession
have found it lo be most helpful. Every province
is covered and, last year, a total of 802 addresses
were given by 829 speakers, the attendance of
physicians at the-.ie meetings having been 25,428.
It is evident that this service is in demand. II
is evident that it is reaching the profession and
securing results. As stated, this is of public and
personal interest because whatever assists in

promoting a greater knowledge of preventive mc

methods of diagnosis and treatment with which Sun Life Assurance Company. During the past
the physician should be familiar. ' ' -
To a considerable extent, this

need is met
through the medical journals. There are no secrets in the medical profession; when any discovery is made, or a piece of work brought to a
successful issue, it is reported in the journals,
and so, new information is made available to the
whole profession.
There is, as everyone appreciates, a limit to the
value of the printed article.    Mostly  everyone
three years, this great Canadian institution has
set aside $00,000 for this purpose. We cannot
imagine a more effective means of bringing about
results which will abound to the benefit of Canadians than this service, which is contributing so
definitely towards securing modern medical care
for the population. In this, the Sun Life Assurance Company may have reason to feel that they
are doing something worthy of their own greatness.

la a country as young as Canada
the development of great estates must
necessarily he slow and perhaps not
alwa.a successful; but there Is one
Bplendid home in Victoria that has
called forth admiration from visitors
from all over the world. Id the March
Issue of Canadian Domes and Gardens
N. de Bertrand Lugrln writes the story
of Hattey Park, tbe finest private estate in Western Canada, and certainly one of tbe few notable properties
la the Dominion.
"Hatley Park was founded by late
Hon. James Dunsmuir.at one time
Lieutenant-Governor of British Columbia, and also for several years
Premier of the Province . James
Dunsmuir was the son of Robert Dunsmuir, who came out to Canada lu
1850, In the service of the Hudson's
Bay Company, to prospect for coal on
Vancouver Island. It was Robert
Dunsmuir who discovered the first
coal  seams  at Nanaimo   where  tho
mines are now among the richest in
the world. James Dunsmuir Inherited
bis father's great wealth, and under
his capable management lt was very
A'iBelj handled. He was one of the
most distinguished and progressive
citizens of the province and remained
closely identified with its development.
At various times be built several attractive homes for his family, but Hat-
ley Park was the final goal.
''Although one of the really beautiful homes of Canada and one that
sponsors brilliant entertaining, to
many who have known it since its
beginning, it has rather a Bad association. It was conceived as the future home of the youngest son, 'Jimmy,' as he waa known to his friends;
'Boy', as he -was lovingly called by the
family. The large house was built,
tho grounds laid out, the handsome
stables erected with the idea that some
day 'Jimmy' would luherit the place.
But fate decreed otherwise. He went
away from Victoria to serve in the
war, aud lost his life tn the sinking
of the Lusltanla."

What to Do in an Emergency
The person who deals best with an
emergency is the one who has. thought
out previously what to do, and who,
when the emergency occurs, keeps
calm, goes ahead and does tilings according to the plan.
When there Is sudden illness, or
when an accident occurs, souivonc
must take charge. Unless there Is
some person present who is more
capuble than yourself, this falls upon
First of all, tiend one person to call
a physician. Do not delay In doing
this because the life of tbe individual
who Is HI or Injured may depend upon
prompt treatment by a physician. No
matter how well trained you are to
handlo emergencies, it Is advisable to
plaae responsibility upon a physician,
who is tbe one recognized to deal with
sickness and accidents.
There is no doubt but that many
lives are saved each year by trained
emergency workers. Thanks to the
services they give aud tbe examplo
they set, many different situations are
met. It is the untrained person who,
In his desire to do something, does
harm.    The  traliisd   workofr   knows
.his own limitations aud docs not do
harm because lie knows what NOT to
do as well as what to do.
In these emergency cases, if you
are not assisting, Uo not, form one of
Uie curious crowd who bo often hinder those who are helping. If you are
assisting, the following suggestions
may be helpful.
Iu general. It is well to loosen any
tight  cloihing  the  patient  may  have
on.   Do not he in a hurry to move the |
patient;   an.,   movement   may   cause j
damage to an Injured part.   Keep the j
patient lying down, with the head low.'
If a part Is Injured and clothing must
be removed, cut off tho clothing lu
preference to moving the Injured par'..
After an injury, there la usuully a con-1
ditlnn of what is called shock.   Shock
should be treated by keeping the pa- j
tlent   warm.    Blankets  or  overcoats;
are  placed  under, over and  around
the  patient.    If possible,  hot  wator
bottles  should  be  placed  under  tho
arm-pits and around the body, euro
helng taken uot to burn the patient..
If the patient Is conscious, give him
a hot drink.
