Revelstoke's second annual winter
sports tournament is over, and it iy
r.'nly a proper meed ol pralBe io say
that from start to finish it was well
run and the competitions keenly aud
Bpiritedlj contested even to ihe baby
girls tnk.n- their first exhibition run.
The leading features of the tournament were, tirst, the whole hearted
sportsmanlike and generous BUpport
given the club hy the business men
arid citizens of Revelstoke as evidenc-
td by thi i.e ucrous contributions of
money and prizes, their closing of
business places and splendid attendance i, all s|iorts. It waa the wonder and n y ol visiting clubs, and
their unanimous opinion was "some
town."
Second, perl ai>s, should be placed
the wonderful asset the club has in
t.ts magnificent hill and the pains it
took to prepare it for competitors

too, the splendid string of vehicles,
all "-el filled, which this year took
the road. It is a matter ot some de-
nor in.; pride to the club that—
speaking oi the second day—so many
vehicles and pedestrians should have
cone safely and comfortably over the
mi.re i' ad without mishap or serious
im   :i ci     ind for this the   club

Every otlicial seemed
iei know M- duties and his work and
ents were made to meet all
Idi Qtingencie8. For instance
then was i a hand a special rig, in
charge i doctor and nurse, with a
red cross li.lg to tly to give it right
of way .o tho hospital in ense of any
accid nt. Fortunately it was not required, although the falls were frequent and severe owing to sticky
snow, no one was in the least hurt
and young Revelstoke is anxious to
go at it again at the first possible
opportunity.
Coming to tbe sports themselves.
The features standing out aro first,
without doubt, the spirit and excel-
lence displayed by the very large
number of hoys and girls Competing
in the junior events. It is a perfect
■ i ui,mr.• In .r.-elf to the citizens of
RevelBtoke Of Moth class and continuity of -jmrt- befitting the title oi
"Capital of Canada's Alps."
Tho nest feature, one, surely, of
the greatest satisfaction and interest
to Revolstoke is tho fact that in the
creat inn.ping contest, Nels Nelsen, of
Revelstoke, not only retains his title
.'f Champion .if British Columbia but
is nmv also champion of Canada as
well. His first counting jump in the
contest was 136 feet, or 10 feet bettor than Mi Olsen ol Montreal did
last year nf Ottawa before His Royal Highness. tho Coventor-! loneral
.Tt waf a magnificent jump, but nothing like what Nelsen can nnd will
do again, under proper conditions.
The public will be interested to know
that betore the longesi standing

"standing" one. \tt the other gnmn
COmpetiti Mr.  ffougeu of Edmon
ton and Tom Maley of Revelstoke ul-
so foil, the judges, rightly, called it
"no decision" and the handsome Bar-
ber cu|i for this event is still unclaimed. One of the judges was
willing to concede the cup to Nelsen,
ou the distance af 13ii feet, the longest "standing" distance made in the
tournament, but the club declined the
offer with thanks, believing that both
Nelsen, and Revelstoke which he represents, would be better pleased to
win if. on better terms and a longer
distance. It should be added in justice to all competitors, and it would
be hard to find a nicer s|drited lot of
sportsmen, that snow conditions es-
pecially above and to the take-off
were against longer juni|>s. It should
also be stated that visiting competiv
ors were very much handicapped by
jumping on such a truly big lull.
They did their best, however. as
good sportsmen should, and Revelstoke will be pleased next year to
see them come in time sufficient to
get the really necessary, confidence
and expertness required to go over
silcb an outline as thnt of Revelstoke's  big jump.
Perhaps it should be added iiere in
justice to Nelsen, who is more disappointed than the many friends he has
mad'', that a bigger distance was not
made; that he wore, that day, lor
the first time, n new jmir of skis,
and when going to the doctor next,
morning he was told, "you must not
111 111 p again for some tune or you
will not jump next year, or maybe
longer."
One more feature of the sports
should be noticed, it was the splendid victory of ole Eivendsen of Cam-
rose, in the championship of II. (M,
long distance race. A record of fifty-
eight minutes over such a gruelling
course, nis splendid stride, powerful,
graceful action, and full-winded, spirited finish was well worthy of the
hearty reception h? received on crossing tbe tape. Mr. Ki'erdsen's record
will take a lot of beating, and the
club and citizens, who recognised his
manly and sportsmanlike conduct
while here will be glad to see him,
with all the other very welcome
guests from the prairie, as competitors at Revelstoke's next tournament.
Tho Ski club and Citizens of Revelstoke greatly appreciate the action
of Ornnt Hall, vice president of the
■ 'anadiar. Pacific railway in arranging for F. T. Trautman, special press
representative, to be present at the
tournament. Through Mr. Trautrr.an
photographs and nn account of the
tournament will be published in the
leading papers as well a-' on Canadian
I'acitic railway pamphlets.

Quick Moves Made
S. W. Hillier who went to the
front as bandsman with Un) 2'Jth battalion has written Oapt. li. H. Sawyer the following interesting letter
Irom Belgium':
"Hello, Captain Dick. 1 received
your     letter some time ago. Needless
to say, I appreciated it. very much,

deprived us of the chance of trench
life nil seeing the war as an ordinary Infantryman dots. The only
tiench life I have had was the first

land was then in reserve about half
a mile behind the front line. We lived in dugouts big enough to accom

It was a novelty, a regular sort of a
cave dwellers existence. Our meager
duty of (carrying stud to the boys in
the trenches was usually thrust ujion
us at night. We were mighty green
then nnd the Hying bullets used to
scare the 'stuffing' out of us. I remember how we used to nearly break
our backs keeping down low in the
communication trenches. I have since
walked the same trenches in nroad

and scanning the surrounding count ry
with my eyes. In fact on one occasion in daylight 1 walked over a g ..id j
jiortion of the ground with a big log
on my back and could loor acn>s

did not do this to show my bravery;
far bo it from such, but the trenches
were down as a result of heavy rain
and wo could not use them. On this

ALL WATER AND LIGHT
ARREARS Mil
The regular meeting of the city
council was held in the council chamber last night. Many matters "err
discussed.
The following recommendation ol
ihe Flre, Lighl and Water committee
regarding overdue water and light accounts was passed and will bereaftei
iie strictly enforced: "All accounts of
fS.OO and under i Ulf I I i pa.el in lull
i j !•'. I" .... :■ i as well as i hi our
■ ent months bill. On all accounts os
er this amount I in p r cent, must I e
paid by tbe end oi the moril h as well
as tbe current months bill, lf paid
before the twent leth day ol eai ■
month the usual discount will be •
lowed on the current account. In both
eases If I he old ac omits are not reduced as above mentioned the wan-;
and light will be cul ofl at I be • n I
of the month.
Aid.  Bourne tb ugbt  thai   the     recommendation might   '. ■  m  g ' ird
on     those who owed the smallei
ounts as it  mighl   be harder feer them
to raise $5.00  at    mce than for     the
larger delinquents  to pay  10 percent.
Aid. Hobson did not think thai tb
recommendation  was severe enough.
Aid. Barber was willing to abide by
the decision of the committee.
Aid, Needham stated that when
the householders were allowed to lall
into arrears times were good and it
would not I e : lir now that things
were so quiet t.e be too severe. By
the plan recom ided the accounts
would all be paid by the end of 1916.

HERE'S REAL SILENCE
The Review complains of the tr.env
bers ..I the Bowser cabinet, but.
speaking oi silence, the silence ed Mr.
M. A- Macdonald, on subjects on
which be has been challenged to defend himself and his associates in the
leadership oi the Provincial Liberal
party is much more remarkable.
Mr. Macdonald is President ol the
Provincial Liberal party and the Liberal candidate in Vancouver ir, the
approaching by-election.
Mr. .lohn P. McConnell, iormerly
editol ol the Sun. now editor ol "J.
p.'s Weekly" has made Cbargi -
against Mr. Macdonald and Mis p ' I
tical associates whicb, il they are
nut true, are slander ol the most criminal   nature.
Mr.     McConnell says. "M.  A. Macdonald  is talking  a  good  ".'.'.    about

was  for the compromising  advantage
of his own law firm.
And in that reason is found the explanation of the lukewarm attitude
of many Liberals in Vancouver towards the candidature of M. A. Macdonald.
DEEDS, NOT WORDS
Hon. Thomas Taylor and members
of the Bowser cabinet are not sufficiently talkative to suit the Review.
■The ministers will no doubt deplore
the fact that they are unable in all
respects to meet the requirements of
the Review, but the fact that they
are giving satisfaction to the province at large may he some consolation. The people of British Columbia do not demand a specially loquacious 5abinet. It is deeds, not words
that count, and although the Bowser
government has been hut a few weeks
in otliee it has already sImwii that it
is fully awake to the requirements ol
the province, and that it will lose no
time in taking any action that may
ne required.
due of the tirst acts of Hon. .1. W,
Bowser op assun ing the premiership
was t.e ere ate special committees of
the cabinet charged with the investigation of all matters .if pressing importance and the result of these enquiries Is likely to be seen in legislation which will be laid before the
bouse at  its  meeting n'st  month.
To Mr. Taylor was entrusted the
chairmanship of the committee charged with the task of '.\ 'stigating the
requirements of the provincial university, of formulating a revisiou of the
governments' educational policy and
of effecting what retrenchments may
be possible, in view of the abnormal
conditions now existing. Even Mr.
["aylor's most bitter ji.litical opponents admit that, while in his charge,
the Department of Public Works was
conducted with efficiency and integrity, and hi-- selection for the important duty ut reorganizing the department of Education 'nas been
ly approved. As "Good Roads Taylor" he won well deserved laurels In

that
brilliant young member for Calgary,
it Is said that he is going to be minister of munitions. The porttolio bas
not been created yet, but friends say
that. Minister of Munitions or minister anything else, Mr. Bennett would
be a success.
Not many Canadians can say with
him that on both his father's and
mother's side he is of the ninth generation born on this continent. He
comes from U E. Loyalist stock. A
New Brunswick boy, he made a fortune in the west, and at the same
time found time to interest himself
in school board, municipal and provincial politics, becoming leader of
the Conservative opposition in Alberta.
That ho is one of the coming men
in Federal politics is taken for granted. He is an exceptionally able
speaker and he is Tearless. He has a
streak of independence, too, nnd cannot be induced to support what he
thinks Is wrong,
CROWNED WITH BUCOESS
The failure eif the appeal Ol tho
Heinze estate against the taxation of
Columbia and Western lands in an
important victory for the province of
British  Columbia.
The late F Augustus Heinze, relying chirily upon clauses in an agreement for the disposal of one-half of
the Columbia jt Western lard grant,
which he owned, to the Canadian Pacilic railway, contended that he was
not assessable for taxes upon the other half. To meet tho situation, Hon.
W. J. Bowser, as attorney-general,
introduced legislation covering the
matter. I'nler that legislation a provincial court of revision upheld Mr.
Bowser's contention that Heinze
must pay the taxes claimed. Heinze
appealed to thi appeal court of British Columbta, whicb also upheld the
argument of the province. Tho case
was Unallj c uTied by the Heinze estate to the highest court in the empire, the privy council. Tbat court's
judgment, which is final, is in favor
of the province and crowns with complete success the fight which Premier
Bowser directed in th; interests of
British Coli'.mM,.:.—Vancouver News

were too high. Perhaps they were.
But skinning a ir."iise or losing an
empire is hardly i understanding of
tho matter. Il s well to remember
that up to the time tbe Shell Committee was organised, no Canadian
manufacturer had ever made a shell
or any part of one. And when they
took an order, they took a chance.
When Canadian wheels began to turn
on shell orders, Canadian soldiers at
the front were being slaughtered for
the want of these same shells. Was it
better to proceed by the Pugsley method of skinning thc mouse, or produce the shells? A,nd come to think
of it, Ur. Pugsley has not always
been so particular as regards the ex-
penditure of public funds. It ill behooves the man who jobbed the country with a sawdust, wharf to cast re-
flectlona on the characters of leading
Canadian manufacturers. In his declining yeai the Hon. William is prov
lng more careful of the expenditure
' f British funds than he was of Canadian expenditurea ln former days.
Turned over a new leaf, as it were.
ll is well to keep In the buck of
one's mind, in discussing tho act oils
e.f tins now celebrated shell Committee, the fact that it sprang from a
mere nothing into a vast enterprise
almost in a night. It. was originally
;, loosely organised body which tin-
.hit.ink to take care of a small order fm shells from the British government. In niece of turning this order over to United States factories,
as was originally intended, the militia lepartment undertook to obtain
seeiae expert advice as to whether or
not the shells could be made in Canada. Manufacturers of steel and iron
and other products whicli go into the
si ell were consulted. They journeyed
down to Quebec on the invitation of
the militia department to see what a
Bhell looked like, aud what, the pro
cess of manufacture was. At first
these men were dubious dl results.
Finally they said they would make
an attempt, and they did, with the
result that the industry was under
way. This, in brief, is the story of
tl.e launching of the shell committee.
Pnder circumstancess less peculiar
and pressing, making those actually
engaged in shell manufacture members of tbe Shell Committee, would
have been the height of absurdity or
worse, ruder pressing conditions, it
was natural enough, though perhaps
unwise: for it was bound, sooner or
later, as bas been pointed out in
these columns on many occasions, to
discredit in public estimation theBe
very same men, and throw suspicion
• rn them,  lastly or unjustly.
And now the Hon. William Pugsley
has placed the fat so near tho lire, it
seems only just that, the entire series
of transactions, as thoy bave to do
with the Shell Committee, be fully
1 • !-' Hated.     It   will   clear  the  am.

NOTES ON COW TESTING
To assist dairy farmers who desire to test their herds for milk production the Dairy and Cold Storage
Commissiorer at Ottawa has issued
for public distribution a pamphlet entitled "Cow Testing Notes" and designated circular No. iti D. & S. series. The pamphlet shows the necessary equipment as spring scales, box
of sample bottles, dipper, etc, and
tells the cost of each and where the
outfit may be procured as well as
the purpose and method of use of
each.
The Department of Agriculture,
through the Dairy and Cold Storage
Branch helps farmers to test their
cows. In July 1915 the branch received records of 22,669 cows. Evi-
ces of the value of cow testing are
given:
"Cow testing not only produces
better cows, hut more interested nnd
better dairymen.
"With each cow's recrrd hefore him
the dairyman is able to feed more intelligently, "Meal in proportion to
milk," is a good motto.
"The fun res of a creamery =tatc-
ment nt Way's Mills, Que., show thnt
'from a herd of twelve cows in 1912,
the cash received by the owner wns
$297.8.ri.   In    1914,  from  twelve  cows,
j he    received    $804.48.   He  discovered
j the poor cows and got rid of them.
"At Mallorytown, Ont., a herd of
twelve cows has increased from 3726
pounds of milk per cow in 1909 to 7,-
, 388 pounds per cow in -1'814-, thiB is
an increase of 3,662 pounds of milk
per cow, or 98 per cent.
"In Hastings county, Ontario, a
farmer commenced cow testing in
1912 and found his herd of ten cows
averaged 5,780 pounds of milk and 187
pounds of fat. In 1914 his ten cows
averaged 7,486 pounds of milk and
254 pounds of fnt, an increase of
1,656 pounds of milk and 67 pounds
of fat in two years.
This pamphlet is available at the
Publications Branch of the Department of Agriculture at Ottawa.
THE  COST OF PRODUCING    MILK
The cost of producing milk obviously depends a great deal on the milking capacity ol the cows used.. Com-,
parison between eight of the best and .
eight of the poorer cows in an Ontar- J
io    dairy  record  centre shows     that,
there was a difference ln profit per
cow of $24,66, the eight high yielding
cows giving an average profit dl
$37.21 while the poorer cows returned a profit of $12.6f> per head. The
milk in each case waB valued at $1.15
per hundred pounds. Tbe difference
no doubt would have been very much
i educed had the feeding been the
same for all the animals. Those that
yielded the higher profit were much
better fed than the others. Tbe average cost of their feed for the milking period being $43.96 per head,
while the food received by the less
profitable animals was valued at
$3'2.33 per head. Calculating from the
standpoint of cost of the milk the
eight cows with the low yields made
only 32 cents profit on a hundred
pourlds of milk while the higher
yielding cows made 54 cents profit
Irom nn equal amount of milk.
This information and a great deal
more of equal value is contained in
the recently issued annual report of
the Dairy and Cold Storage Commissioner of the Department of Agriculture at Ottawa. This report, in addition to the Dairy and Cold Storage
Commissioner's general report, contains twelve appendixes which deal
with the work of the Assistant Dairy
Commissioner, the extension of markets, dairy aud cold storage divisions, etc. An appendix of unusual
interest gives statistics of the export and Import trade in dairy produce, which show that the exports of
butter increased from 1,951,585 lbs. in
1890 to 2,724,913 in 1915, while during
the same period the exports of cheese
increased from 94,264,187 lbs. to 137,
b01,66l lbs.

Department of Agriculture at Ottawa

Mike Walsh has returned to this section from near Creston, where he is
interested in a copper proposition
that he bas heen working on for a
number of years.
With silver around fifty-seven cents
nnd Montreal lead at nearly seven
dollars und fi'tty cents, local mining
men are commencing to get a little
impatient at the inactivity forced up-
on milling plants by the continued
cold weather. They feel that tbey
want to make hay while the sun is
shining.
The B. C. Copper Company is making arrangements for the construction of a concentrating mill at
Princeton to handle the ores ol the
Princess group. Thc company has
also completed the purchase 'from E.
Hodges of Vancouver, liquidator of
the South Yale Copper Company, of
the Sunset mineral claim for $45,000.
For the week ending January 27th,
the ore receipts at the Consolidated
M. & S. smelter at Trail from tbe
different mines of the Ainsworth and
Slocan divisions were:
Mine Tons
Standard,   Silverton    124
Hewitt,   Silverton   36
Galena Farm,  Silverton  91

The figures published in this   issue
show that 1915 was one of the   most
active    and productive years in     thc
history    of    the     industry in British
Columbia.   The tot;il estimated value
of the output was nearly $30,000,000.
An increase  of $3,3U,OiK) over 1914  is
shown.   The     silver production of 3,-
C70,(N)0 ounces is the  greatest in     18
yours;  zinc and copper output  estab- '
lish a high record, and lode gold production  hns been exceeded only twice j
The hirh price of lead to a consider- i
able extent  offsets the decrease in the1
production ol that  metal,  and  while j
coal     shows a reduction  in  tonnage,
the.    coke output is greater than     in
Mil I.

In fact only the largei lower muscles
are used, and these are the muscles
that are most In use all the time
during the day by the average man.
Proper exercise for the whole body
would call Into play all the muscles,
big and little, moving all the joints,
■and giving the lungs a complete
change of air in all their parts. Thi*
would keep the system from getting
•stale." Tf the muscles and
are not used often tbey lose a great
deal of their elasticity and life, and
I ecome Stiff, And if the lungs do not
frequently have a change of air in
tne jiarts that we do not use all the
time they get clogged up and not
ible to do good  work when  they are
ailed  upon.
The ideal way to exercise the whole
body would he to start out with a
in isk walk breaking into a run and
grading ofl Into a walk again just to
get the heart running smoothly and
Mist enough so that it will supply en-
Mgh blood to feed all the muscles
during the exercises about to be taken. All exercises should be started in
this way as this is important, else
the smaller muscles at the extremities will have to go without a good
blood supply. Cales>thenlc movements

small muscles in the fingers ard work

they are all working smoothly the

Take Three Games
On Tuesday night the Business Men
bowled ofl in a league game against
the Maples and won three straight
games.

! rifle shots I felt quite relieved.
We never went bic to live in the
trenches but for a >ug time we bad
to go up each night when the boys
were in and carry rations from where
! the transport left them, to the front
, lines. This was worse than ever for
we had about a five mile walk   each
■ way. On a good many occasions
while   thus     employed     the trenches
: could not be used, and we were compelled to make the whole trip above
ground, with the enemy only sixty
or seventy yards away in places. We
eventually got used to the song of
bulbts. But let me tell you it takes
a bit of getting used to, this plowing
along with a load on your back,   no
1 visible enemy in sight, just the soft
whizz of a close one straight from
the gun or the sharp whe-e-e-e of a
rocket, with no chance to come back
and no protection except the darkness
, and what the Lord sees fit to give.
We hnve sin-e got out of that work
altogether and do not go within danger of rifle fire T guess they could
'Iron     a     shell on us,  but they first
' have to find you to do that.
But such chances are onlv natural. |
Th»v ere tlie fortunes of war. If
there was no risk war would he easy.
So if our opponents see fit to give us
a free ride on one of their Jack John
°on's 1 Fiiess we will have to accent
it as part of the game. At that
th»re <c i-e-e(, satisfaction in knowing
that o"r ride would cost them some

John  Lane Says Canadian  Connoisseurs (Jo To Far Aboard.
Mr. John Lane, the eminent F.ng-
lish publisher and connoisseur, who
was in Toronto a few days ago, Bav
most of the private collections of jiii-
uiri's in Toronto and In Montn al, and
expressed the greatest admiration ol
the taste antl discernment of Canadian collectors. Hut there is. he Bays,
one iliing lacking in all of them—thc
work of Canadian artists. Mr. Lam
wonders thai these native artists, whe
rank, as a whole, with the modern
Dutch school, do not receive more re
cognition. Such arlists as Horatio
Walker. Homer Watson, Edmund
Morris, Gagnon, William Brymner,
and James Frazer, have no pe rs In
their own held.
Mr. Lane visited the galleries of
sir William Van Home, lady Drummond, iiiui .Mrs. Aliens, in Montreal,
and of Sir Edmund Walker, Sir IMI
niund Osier. Mrs. Timothy Eaton,
Mr. D. R. Wllkle and Mr'.
D. Massey, In Toronto.
"These connoisseurs have
presentatlve collections of the modern Dutch and French schools," Bald
Mr. Lane, "Then' is a Bprinkling ol
tbe work of British artists, such ae
llorni'l. McTaggart, Swan, Mt h llle,
and Lavery. I was somewhat disappointed in noi finding mon' of the
British school, antl so few picture?
of Canadian artists. One would like
lo see tho siinit' appreciation of
Canadian art as Canadians show to
their great humorist, Prof. Stephen
Leacock."
Speaking of Leacock, Mr. Lane
said that perhaps the professor's
early recognition in Canada might
be due to his endorsement by England and America!
Mr. Lane hns noticed a great Increase in Canada's demand for English books. Tlnre has been an awakening in this country's interest In
the life and letters of Englnnd and
Kurope, and noi only English firlion,
hut English biography nnd English
essays and political Writings are being called for in surjirising numbers.
Just at present, fewer serious
hooks aro being published owing to
the sudden demand for hooks relating to the war in all its phases.
Hooks Ihat. have long Iain dead,
hooks of obscure modern history
and diplomacy, of description of the
various countries Involved in war,
are being revived. One volume Ihat
was suppressed hy the Kaiser, and
which had a doubtful popularity ten
years ago — "Life In a Garrison
Town," by Lieut. Rilse — Is now- receiving world-wide Interest, as being
a trne picture of military and civilian
life ln Germany under the military
regime. Rooks like "The Iron Year"
and "When William Came," novels
that had Indifferent success heretofore, are now among the "best sellers." "It Is interesting to note."
said Mr. Lane, "that tho most notable
contribution to serious literature this
year Is the work of a Canadian, the
study of the .economic history of Russia by Prof. JameB Mavor, of the
University of Toronto.
■Compromise Report.
At one time a great many years
ago so much counterfeit money was
in circulation that business men
found It advantageous to use a counterfeit banknote detector.
A storekeeper in a Nova Scotian
village came into possession of a
banknote which he strongly suspeect-
ed to be counterfeit, so he sent lt to
a nearby city In charge of an old
stage driver for examination.
On two successive trips the old fellow forgot this particular errand. A
third time he was charged with It in
terms unmistakably strong. Again he
forgot. Fearing to confess his carelessness, he resolve* to brave it out
somehow.
"Well," said the storekeeper anxiously, "did thev say it was a bad
bill?"
"Why, no," responded the stage
driver deliberately,  "not exactly."
"Not exactly?" ejaculated the other. "What do you mean? Was lt
good?"
"No, not exactly that either," and
the old man bl iginened a little. "They
said they guessed it was 'bout mid-
dlin'."

Origin of Canada's Name.
There is a greal deal of dispute as
to how Canada came to get Its name,
but many are disposed to the belief
that Canada Ik a perverted Spanish
phrase. The Spaniards visited here
previous to the French and made
search for gold and silver, and, finding none, they oft. n said amongst
themselves, "Am nada," meaning,
"There Is nothing here."
The Indians, who watch-el . It..-, ly,
learned this senlenci and its meaning. Then came the French, and the
Indians, who did noi want them, supposing the)   Mad come on  lhe same
