their 'interests. Tbe handling of a
large amount of powder was a great
i Isk and should be paid tor according
to thc risk taken.
Ceo. Matheson Sr., snd that thc

'■I love skating.—Don't you, John?"
"Yes, Anne, it.is very delightful, and
especially skating with such a good
fckater as you after being relieved, of
the burden of teaching others, who
weigh two hundred pounds, more or
less! But a part from that, we feel
like happy flying birds on our skates,
Hitting around above the green river,
c.rinking the clean fresh air; tilMug
our lungs till tbey seem ready to
burst; setting to work lazy muscles
which have hardly known work; but
once in a while taking a tumble over
a crack and giving yourself a crack
also'"—E.   Johnson.
One of the sports which I favor Us
lacrosse. Lacrosse the Canadian National game should be upheld because
it is a game which is healthful, clean
; nd easy to understand. Hundreds of
>ears ago the Indians of North America played the game of Lacrosse,
lt consisted, (not as the present day
Lacrosse doesj of a kind of cross
ttick with a hoop over the part which
crossed. They also used a ball as we
c'o. The present day Lacrosse is
slightly d'ifterent to that played by
tbe Indians. A stick with a slight
hoop at the end with gut or leather
web like strings in the centre is our
present day Lacrosse stick. Lacrosse
teaches us accuracy, speed and fairness,  if properly played.
Each of the provinces of the Dominion havc a Lacrosse league which
strives to capture tbc Minto Cup.
This cup is now held by New Westminster, B. C.
One of the most interesting Lacrosse matches 1 have ever seen was
j laved between Revelstoke and
Regina, The Regina players were on
their way at the time to New Westminster. They were challenged by Revelstoke and at once stopped off. Thc
match was held on tbe Y.M.C.A.
grounds. Tbe Revelstoke boys put
up a good game, Tlie combination
tnd attitude ot the hoys was fine.
When Regina left tbey bad won by
a sc ae a t,, 4 against Revelstoke.
Tbis reverse was Indeed not looked
tor at the bands ot the Revelstoke
l.oys. When the Regina players got
in New Westminster they were defeated by a score of something like 14
to 2.
Lacrosse when properly played is,
I think one of the most Interesting
nnd manly games In existence.—R.

Hut listen!  I do no1   want  my read
ers to follow my example and go out
sliding when their home work isn't
linished. It's a bad policy, for the
next night I had to do twice as much
home work on account of the many
punishment exercises I got; for in the
morning I was too sleepy to get up
to stud/.—Drina Fraser.
Basket ball is a sport which is very
strenuous and often serious but when
o>ne thinks of the sport he forgets
about thoughts of sprained wrists,
broken thumbs, etc. The people who
play forward bave quite a good time
thooting the ball to the defenders.
One day ut the Y.M.C.A. our teams
were about evenly balanced and,
more fun I do not think was possjble.
Just as soon as one of our side could
shoot a point and be watching for
the ball to come down out of the
wicket somebody would come along
and jump so high for it you would al- '
most wait for them to come down.
When we finally got the ball and I
was just so anxious to make that
one more point for our side, all too
late, I discovered I bad taken more
than two steps w'ith the ball in hand
and then the whistle was blown. Of
course I had to go and start over
again and I felt like taking the ball
right out of somebody's band but
what wus the use, perhaps our defender was a much better shot than
uny of our opponents. Ome person
out of our team fell on the hard
wood tloor and was quite badly hurt,
but before falling she had dealt us
the winning point and in spite of her
fall she got up and cheered. As I said
before we lose sight of wounds, etc.,
when we think of the sport. Now I
must conclude having told why "my
favorite sport" is 'basketball.—Alma
Two of the most interesting out-of-
door games are Baseball and Football
Football is a dry game from beginning to end. All they do is fall over
the ball, like a spectator once said,
aud when the people hollered "try,
try" they tried all the harder but
still tbey couldn't break thc ball.
Imagine yourself watching a Football
game and a Baseball game. In Football see what has already been described. In Baseball be sittiug in a
huge grandstand and the umpire runs
out and hollers, "Batteries tor today B game, Philadelphia, Wyckoil
and Lapp; Boston, James and Gow-
...." Then you know that tbe excitement is about to begin. There goes
Johnny Evera up to bat and with a
nice little Single that just misses
Barr] 'a glove reaches lirst. Listen to
the shouting! and you are even shout-
Ing yourself, vou a noted toott^nU fan

to me to be oue there watching the

the ducks' wings as they come In

and a splash as they throw their
tired bodies into the marsh. That

Kitchener eat in bis London den,
Silent and grim and grey,
Making his plans with an iron pen,
Just in  K'itchener's way,
And be saw where the    clouds     rose
dark and dun,
And all that it meant he knew;
"We shall   want every  man who   can
shoulder a gun
To carry  this thing right through!"
Bravo,    Kitchener!      Say   what   you
No one will say you nay;
And the world shall know, where our
bugles blow.
We've' a  Man at the head—today.

And French is     facing     the enemy's
Stubbornly  day  by  day,
Taking the odds and      bearing     the
Just in the Britisher's way,
And he hears the message that makes
him glad,
Ring through thc smoke and flame:
"Fight on, Tommy,    stick   to   .them
Jack's at the same old game."
Bravo, Tommy'      Stand     as you've
Anil whether you win or fall.
Show    them    to    fight    as  gentlemen
And die like gentlemen ull.
So Kitchener plans in  London Town,
French is standing at bay,
Jellicoe's ships ride up and down,
Holding the sens'  highway,
And you that louf where     the   skies

And play by n  petticoat bem,
These are the men     who are fighting

Bravo, then,  for the men who fight;

Flour varies from time to

is because wheat continually
varies according to soil conditions, etc.
Therefore, if baking results are to be constantly high,
baking tests are essential.   It

Revelsioke Mtimer
Dies at Enderby
•rue Enderby Press gives the follow-
■ing account of the death of A. Mc-
JOTiirter, a former resident of Revel-
Every Slocanite of tho early days
will remember Alec McWhirter, for
several years a resident of New
"Denver, and after of Cherry Creek, ic
the Similkameen. Alec was of that
true type of Scotchmen, whose whole
■body was no larger than his heart,
and whose sense of honor was not to
be measured by green backs and baw-
*bees. He was as true a type of the
■mining camp pioneer us one could tnd
anywhere, and to be respected was
but to be known.
After many years of hardship In
lone cabins in thc hills, where lor
weeks at a time in the winter season ne never would see a fellow man,
and bacon nnd bannocks were his
only food, Mr.!McWhirter, ave months
ago, concluded to make his home
close up to tried and true friends of
earlier days. He bought a small
piece of ground from Wm. Anderson,
on the river just    north ot Enderby,
and there the friends and neighbors
assisted in the erection of a comfortable cabin for the old gentleman,
close by, where Mr. and Mrs. Anderson could keep an eye upon him and
help him in his need. The cabin was
completed In time for Mm to be
made comfortable before the cold of
winter set in, and here he was as
snug as a bug in a rug.
And this is the irony of fate. On
Christmas day he was taken sick,
with one of those stomach troubles
he was subject to, and in a few days
they carried him out of his msy
cabin by the river to the graveyard
on the hill, and there hiB last resting
place Is marked by a mound of newly-turned earth.
Anthony McWhirter enlisted for thc
74th regiment of Lancaster volunteers
on the 13th September, 1867, at the
age of 18 years. He was born in the
parish of Dalrumple, in or near the
town of Girvan. He had no relatives
in this country.
He served two years at Gibralter,
when bc was injured and discharged.
He worked a number of years as
fame-keeper for the Earl of Selkirk,
and later for the big Allan Company
of brewers. He came to Southern
Manitoba in 1896 and two years later moved to New Denver, where he
moved  to Cherry  Creek,  coming    to
Enderby the past summer.
There was a number of his old
friends at the grave, where Rev. Mr.
Dow read the simple burial service.

Behind the Washington government's protest to Greut Britain over
interference with American cargoes
consigned to neutral countries in
Europe there lies a good deal of fact
that must be considered in forming
a fair judgment of the case. It is
..dmitted that American business interests involved in the export trade
to Europ.f Instigated the protest.
Who are they? The chief two arc thc
oil and copper interests, both of
which have had a large German business.
In 1913 the l'nited States production of copper amounted to 1,234,-
5S5.OD0 pounds. Of this exports accounted for 920,000,000 pounds of
which Germany took 3M7,WM),000
pounds, Austria.Hungary 34,000,000
pounds, the United Kingdom 133,000,-
000 pounds, Prance MO-,000,000 pounds
Russia S.OOH.OOO pounds and Belgium
1,000  pounds.    That is,  Germany
and Austria t  over a third ofthe
exports. Germans are heavily inter
sated In, If they do not actually con
roi, the greal i ipper concerns of the
l'nited States. The price of copper In
Germany    is     at     least 50 per cent.

New York Tribune: "For our own
point of view it connot be made too
clear that the whole theory of contraband is perfectly calculated to stir
up endless dispute. It has been the
subject of more international bickering than cam be measured. The moment we concede—as we must concede
I under the unquestioned rules of international law—the right of Great
Britain to halt our merchant ships
on the high seas, board them and
search them for contraband, we are
obviously providing material for
wrangling and injustice. Tbis right of
search is the price which international law makes neutral commerce pay
for its right to continue in the main
unhampered. When we ndd to this
inherently obnoxious right of search
the fact that definitions of contraband are hopelessly vague and the
whole doctrine in a state of flux, it
is plain that here lis no sure ground
on which to pick a hasty quarrel
with anyone. Rather is it a case for
full discussion, frank demands and
rational settlement through the compromises by which every disputed
situation at  law must be resolved."

A vcry sudden and sad death occurred in the St. Eugene hospital last
Friday morning at 8.30 when Miss
Jane Hamilton Kerr Johnson passed
away. Miss Johnson arrived at Moyie
on the Tuesday before Christmas to
lemain for the winter keeping house
lor her sister, Miss Florence Johnson
who is employed as a teacher in the
Moyie schools. She claimed to have
taken a slight cold on her arrival
and thought she would be better in a
few duys as soon as she had recovered from the tiring elfects of her trip
from Nanaimo. She commenced to
grow weaker from day to day and
she was finally brought to this city
where tho doctor discovered that she
was suffering Irom pneumonia and a
weak heart. She was accompanied by
Ler sisters, Miss Margaret Johnson
and Miss Florence Johnson, and
everything possible was done for her
but she succumbed on the following
Deceased wus the second daughter
of the late Rev. William Johnson of
Vernon, B.C., and was born at Hamilton, Ontario. After her mother's
death when the family were residents
of Grand Forks, B.C., she assumed
charge of the housekeeping and continued to make a home for her brother and sisters. Four years ago the
brother, J.K. Johnson, was married
and since that time she has resided
with him. The other members of tbe
family always visited Nanaimo for
their holidays and this is the first
time they have failed. Her death coming at this time is especially sad for
Her life was practically devoted to
her brother and sisters and while
deeply religious she only took
a slight interest in public worship,
but always conducted regular devotional services in the home. Her favorite quotation was, "In niy Father's house are many mansions. I go
to prepare a place for you und if 1
go und prepare a place for you, I
will come again and receive you unto
myself,that where I am there ye may
be also." A yeur ago 'in December
she came to Cranbrook to nurse her
youngest sister, Miss Florence Johu-
son, who was then ill at St, Eugene
hospital with iullamatory rheumatism
For three months she spent her days
In the hospital lookiiiL' after her sister until she was able to return
with her. She died in the room ud-
joining that occupied by her sister
during  her  illness.
Two brothers and three sisters are
left to mourn hei   loss.  They are Rev.

Belgian Consul Gives

The following letter has been received by Mrs. Robb'ins from the Belgian consul general at Ottawa.

$120.33 from the committee of the
Belgian relief of Revelstoke for the
Belgian relief work.
May I request you to kindly tender
to the members of your committee
the expression of my lively sense of

Yours very sincerely,

With a view to relieving any distress among poor ranchers and others living in the interior, the attorney-general, ub head of thc game
department has instructed Game Warden Wi'lliums to issue special permits
allowing deer to be killed out of season. Many of these permits have al-
leady been 'issued, and have proved a
great boon. The game wardens,, constables and government agents are
reporting on any cases where the issuance of a special permit is desirable and proper precautions are being
taken to prevent abuse.
An interesting case submitted to
the attorney-general comes from Fernie district, where a poor widow with
four children is in need of food supply. Game Warden Williams would
vcry readily issue a permit to her,
but it would prove of no avuil without a man to trail the deer und fire
tbe gun. The novel request is to be
made that one of the deputy gume
wardens may hunt on her beball
whenever a deer is required by the
libttc family.
The great value of thc game department in ridding the forests of
animals of prey, and of protecting
the deer is seen today when the deer,
which are abounding in plcntifulness
in the 'interior provide a valuable
meet supply  in time of need.

Carry Your Patriotism
Into Your Buying!
For ten years we have been talking practical
patriotism, urging Canadians to buy the Canadian-
made Gillette Safety Razor in preference to the
cheap German makeshifts.
The war has clinched our arguments.
So confident are we of the future of the only
safety razor made throughout, in Canada, that we
are bringing out withia ;. few weeks a New Model,
It's British to the hilt, and looks the part. The
price stands at $5.00—no increase over the
Standard Gillette Set. Watch for the Gillette
"Bulldog" ("what we have we'll hold") in the
shop windows—you'll like it.
The war has not checked Gillette progress. Cur
factory is running full time, with complete staff.
Thus we are doing our part toward maintaining
Canada's prosperity. Do yours by buying, in
preference, goods

greatly due to the exceedingly poor

G. O. Buchanan, lead bounty   commissioner,    was     in    Knslo recently.
Very little bounty was earned during
1914,   he stated.     The London metal
exchange was closed from July 31 to
Nov.  9, during which time thcre were
no quotations. However, a committee
of the exchange met at the   end     of
each  month and  gave 'its opinion   aB
to a 'air average settlement pries for
that particular month. In his opinion
this settlement price may be accepted  by the irovernment as a  basis   of
settlement under     the    Lend Bounty
Act.     During thnt   time    the lowest
tion       was     £17, 8s 9 64-100d,
