The Grand Forks team came  over in a special C. P. R. train with  a host of their admirers and   friends.  The game was really excellent, the  ice was keen and the crowd in (rood  humor. Few penalties had to be imposed. E. G. Warren acted as  referee, most satisfactorily. The  play was swift for the entire game,  and the cheering loud and long.  J. McDonald played an extraordinary  game, in spite of having a lame foot,  and has three goals to his credit.  George Clerf, H. Cameron and J.  Bloomfield, each scored a goal, and  had it not been for the magnificent  defence of the Grand Forks goal  keeper each of the other members of  Greenwood Hockey team might have  had goals to their credit, too. Bloomfield never played better in his life  than on Monday last. The* game  was a good test of what our boys can  do. This victory, with the protested  game at Grand Forks, places Greenwood at the head of the Boundary  Hockey league..  PLAY UNDER PROTEST  Last Thursday evening a C. P. R.  special took a large number of Green-  woodites to Grand Forks, together  with the Greenwood Hockey team,  to- play the seventh game in the  Boundary Hockey league series.  The match was somewhat, delayed  owing to a protest being made by  Greenwood against a new member of  the Grand VorJcs team. The game  was played under protest, and as such  does not count in the series against  Greenwood.

HOCKEY  JUDGE TURNER  APPOINTED  OUR PAYROLL  INCREASING  Former United States Senator  George Turner, of Spokane, left on  Monday last for Washington for a  final conference with President Taft  and Attorney General Wickersham,  before sailing for The- Hague, to act  as chief counsel for the United States  in the arbitration of the long-standing  dispute with England as to the construction of the Newfoundland fisheries treaty of 1818. Turner was  placed in charge of the government's  case by ex-President Roosevelt nearly  18 months ago, and has given much  of his time to the matter since. His  researches in the files of the case  have caused him to overhaul legal  data and opinions compiled by such  statesmen as Daniel Webster, as the  dispute over the fisheries treaty has  continued with more or less vigor for  75 years. The case will be presented  to The Hague tribunal in May, and  England will be represented by some  of its foremost lawyers. Judge  Turner was a member of the commission that negotiated the treaty over  the Alaskan boundary.  LOCAL OPTION  The official count of the ballots  cast in the recent local option  plebiscite was completed February 4th before Deputy Provincial  Secretary A.

But the payroll is  slowly increasing.  We have now the Nc. 7 mine  in operation, the �� P. U., Bay,  Tip Top, Combination and Dynamo mines working, besides the  Greenwood-Phoenix tunnel and  the Argo tuuuel, all employing  men, and these smaller payrolls,  added to the larger amount distributed by the big copper company each month, are buildiug  up the business of the town. The  year 1910 promises to be a propitious year for Greenwood.  THE BALL  There was a large attendance  at the Fancv Dress Mask ball on  February 4, at Greenwood Auditorium.  The prizes for the most popular costumes went to Mr?, P.  Roosa. as an Egyptian ladv, and  Mr. W. C, H. Wilson as a French  marquis.  There     were    many    notable  dresses,   and   altogether  the evening was greatly enjoyed.    The  music  might  have  been   better,-  but the very tasteful  decorations:  and excellent supper made up for^  a lot.

FRIENDSHIPS  incies of fortune, the betterment  of conditions draw away from a  so small community, one bv one,  the old crowd, the familiar faces,  the Station becomes a very sad  place indeed to those who are left.  Life is not all beer and skittles  by any means, but the friendships  formed along the way, are the  greatest boon that comes to us  mere mortals. Each good bye  takes someone away whom it  took years to know and appreciate. We must make the best of  it and welcome the new arrivals,  make them at home, and sticking  to the old friends, wherever they  are,-add new friends to our list,  while we are not too old to form  new ties or too callous to care.  R I. P.  The members of the Central  Farmers' Institute, of Victoria,  have decided that the Crow is  more of a nuisance than a benefactor, and will ask the government to place a bounty of 5 cents  a head. That may help to deprive some of the pests of a livelihood and put some easy money  into the hands of small British  Columbians. Poor old Crow!  It's certainly hard lines to be only  worth 5 cents, a mere nickel, and  to be hounded by every small boy  who has visions ot a sack of  candy or peanuts in his little  brain. But you will become a  nuisance, so something had to be  done.          EDITORIAL COMMENT  We had to send Martha to the  Lions. But our minds are easy,  the Lyons will be good to Martha.  Tho   quays   of   some   mighty  port,    witnessing-   sad   farewells  fiich day. as thc leviathans of the  <l'"cp,   carrying   their   passenger  cargoes,   ply   from   port   to port,  are thc  saddest  places on earth.  But the small   C.   1>,   K. depot of  this little mining town, far from  the  giddy   whirl  of the  world's  commerce, is sad enough.    Since  the Station   was  built',  some ten  years ago, it has seen many come  and many   go.    The   new-comers  are the bright side, the good byes  to those who leave the  sad  side,  and of late  years   the  good byes  have been so   frequent.    It takes  years  to know each  other,  and  somehow the  old  friendships are  not easily  replaced.     Whatever  be   the   number   of   friends   we  have,   there   are    always   times  when thev are too  few; while of  enemies we all must  have some,  but one is too many.

A  friend of her parents seated Miss  Hope on his knee and began to tease  her, calling her "Dutchy." She  protested indignantly, saying: "I'm  not Dutch. I'm English-Scotch-  Irish-American." " Dear me, what  a mixture," teased her tormentor.  "How on earth did you get so mixed  up?" "I diefn't get mixed up," she  responded. " It was my ancestors."  ���Inland Observer.

The bride is the daughter of  Mr. and Mrs. Robert McCrea and is  a handsome, charming and accomplished young lady. Mr. Dickinson  is well known in this city, being a  general agent in the Kootenays of the  Giant Powder Co., a member of the  Rossland - club, and a holder of a  commission of Captain of the Corps  of Gujdes. He is a generous whole-  souled gentleman who enjoys the  friendship and esteem of a large number of the residents of rCootenay,  who will be pleased to learn that he  has become a benedict. Mr. and  Mrs. Dickinson have gone to Hawaii,  where they will pass two months of  their honeymoon amid the smiling  sunny skies and tropical verdure of  these "Beautiful Isles of the Sea."  Mr. Dickinson has been promoted to  a higher position with the company  for which he has for so many years  been the Kootenay representative,  and this forces him to take up his  residence in Vancouver. As soon,  therefore, as he and his bride return  from Hawaii, they will settle down in  a pleasant home in Vancouver.���  Rossland Miner.

Whoever  St. Valentine was, he is reputed  to have been a Roman Bishop  way back in 271, A. D., he left  us a charming legacy in his very  name and the old, old custom of  "choosing a valentine." Whether  you send a picture postcard,~an  old time valentine, or a box of  bon-bons, the idea is the same,  it's just another of the good old  excuses to show someone you like  that you do like.  Comet A, 1910, has a tail 50,000,-  000 miles long, is the decision and  description of astronomers and scientists on Mount Wilson, who declare  the tail of the comet peculiarly constituted and thirty degrees in length.  Thirty degrees is commonly interpreted at 50,000,000 miles in astronomy. The first photos of the comet  have been obtained and are largely  satisfactory. Fifty millions of miles  would reach from the evening star,  Venus, to the earth and two-thirds of  the way back at the present date.  Just now. Venus is little more than  30,000,000 miles away. When it  gets on the other swing of, its orbit it  will be 120,000,000 miles awav. The  vagrant of the skies has, as far as is  at present known from photographs  taken, three tails. Two of them  form the brilliant appendage of "teat  length and are long and slim. To  ordinary instruments and to the naked  eye these two tails look as one. The  scientific instrument shows another  tail three times as broad as the oilier  two combined and not more than two  degrees in length. It will remain in  the heavens for two weeks longer.

Piles are  caused by distension of the hemorihoid  veins, and the tissue becomes highly  inflamed, dry and sore. Zam-Buk cools  and soothes the inflamed tissue and  the healing essences in Zam-Buk penetrate the diseased parts, giving ease  quickly and eventually curing the  most obstinate case of piles,  Mr. George Harris, of Virden, Man,,  says: "I suffered acutely from piles,  but I am glad to say Zam-Buk gave  me ease and brought about ultimate  cure."  jlrs. S. Cooke, 468 Pacific Ave., Win  nipeg,  says:    "A  month   ago   I   was  cured by Zam-Buk of a  bad  attack of  bleeding   piles, to   which   I  had been  subject fora longtime."  Mr. Wir. .Ketity, of Upper Nine Mile  River, Hants Co., N, S., says: "1  suffered terribly from piles. The pain  from these was at times almost unbearable. I tried various ointments,  but everything failed to do me the  slightest good 1 was tired of trying  various remedies, when I heard of  Zam-Buk, but thought, as a last resource, I would give this balm a trial.  I procured a supply and commenced  with the treatment. Iu a very short  time Zam-Buk effected what all the  other ointments and medicines had  failed to do���a complete cure."  Whereever there is inflammation or  ulceration, there Zam-Buk should be  apuHed. It heals ulcers, abscesses, festering sores, cold cracks, scalp sores,  cuts, burns, scalds, bruises and all irritated, inflammed or diseased condi-  itions of the skin and subjacent tissue.
