A magnificent silver dish, twenty
inches ln diameter, presented by
ICing Emmanuel -of Portugal to the
famoua explorer Vasca da Gama in
I-199 in recognition of the lattcr'B
iii3covery of the sea route to India,
wai recently on exhibition in the
viiidowa of tho downtown offices of
the Canadian Pacific Railway on St.
James street. The dish is now owned
by Rene Dupuis, graduate of the
University ot Nancy, Franco, a
resident of Montreal.
The dish is circular with a wide
border and i • a beautiful specimen of
the most exquisite repousse work of
the celebrated European oilversmithn.
In the centre is admirably depicted in
practically every detail the quaint old
ship, the San Gabriel, which was
Da Gama's flagship on his famous
voyage to India.
Around the figure of the ship are
striking impressions of wild beasts
and flowers. On a raised border of
silver around the vessel are two
inscriptions, barely visible to the
eye. The first reads "Emmanuel le
Grand to Vasco de Gama, 1499". The
second inscription is: "Marquis Niza-
da da Gama to M. Anne Duportal,
Commandant du Cygne, 1846." The
second inscription was placed there
when the relic was given to Commandant Duportal for saving the life
of the Marquis, a descendant of da

The San Gabriel rounded the Capo
of Good Hope after da Gama had
quelled a munity of his rebellious

Malabar, the south-west corner of
India in May 1498. On September 1,
1499 the vessel sailed proudly into
Lisbon to the accompaniment of loud
shouts from the huge crowd assembled to greet her and the heroic commander. It was in that year that da

dish by a grateful monarch as an expression of esteem and regard from
an admiring court and a thankful
Da Gama made another voyage to
India in 1602, planting Portuguese
colonies at Mozambique and other
places, and returned in 1503 with a
rich cargo. For this work he was
awarded a title and appointed admiral of the Portuguese navy. Some
twenty-one years later he made his
last voyage to India. He fell ill on the
way, dletfin Cochin, Indo-China, and
was buried on the Malabar coast
where he had cowed into submission a
sullen crew of mutineers twenty-six
years before. But the gallant admiral's friends would not let his body
remain in foreign soil. So it was
brought back to Portugal and buried
in 1638 with all the honor and homage
due a national hero.

The very first thing to pop into a person's
head when he pays his first visit to Tacna is
that it should have been christened, instead,
Toytown or Dollhouse City. Not thai it is so
small in area, but its whole general type of
architectnre is so delightfully diminutive as to
make the people upon its streets and in its
doorways seem almost out of proportion. The
color combinations are many and weird.though
the colors themselves rather unostentatiously
incline toward the pastel shades in lieu of the
blatant deeper^toues that distinguish the Ari-
can house fronts. Pinks and yellows aud light
oranges and blues and pea-greens and lavenders unite to make a rainbow out of every
street. A pea-green house may have a blue
door, pink iron bars at its window, while its
neighbor's cottage may be yellow with lavender bars and an orange door. One may well
believe, however, that the tout ensemble is too
fascinating to be the least bit offensive to even
the most artistic eye.

Poems From Other Lands
To Youth
Yes, youth, thou'rt fled, and I am left,
Like yonder desolated bower,
By winter's ruthless hand bereft
Of every leaf and every flower.
With heaving heart and streaming eyes
I woo'd thee to prolong thy stay,
Bnt vain were all my tears and sighs,
Thou only Hed'st more fast away.
Yet tho' thou Hed'st away so fast
I can recall thee if I will;
For I can talk of what is past,
And 1 while I talk, enjoy thee still.

Westerners Show Mettle in East
For the first time in years a western rugby team has
given a worthy display against an eastern team. The
western senior champions have been completely routed
year after year, but on Saturday, December 12, the
western juniors provided a real challenge to the supremacy of the east.
Flaying against the Montreal Amateur Athletic
Association rubgy squad for the Dominion Junior Rugby
Championship, the Patricia Junior Rugby Team of
Regina, Saskatchewan, was defeated by a narrow margin
of 6, to 4 after holding the lead of 4 to 1 for the first
three quarters. In the final quarter the Montreal team
sent Ayer into the field as a Kicker and he managed to
hold his own against husky Erskine, of the Patricias,
who was the star player.
The M.A.A.A. managed to crash through the opposing line for a try. The game at the M.A.A.A. grounds
8roved a fine exhibition of Rubgy despite the snow on
ie ground. The Regina Leader donated a cup to the
winners. This is to be known in the future as the Regina
Leader Trophy and iB to be played for annually for the
junior championship of Canada.   Dick Gibson, of the
Leader, who accompanied the team, presented the cup
to the M.A.A.A. squad at an informal meeting Saturday
The Regina Patricias travelled to Montreal on the
Canadian Pacific flyer the "Imperial" in charge of H.
Wright, C.P.R. representative, and expressed their
gratification at the fine accommodation afforded them
so that they were able to take the field in fine condition.
They returned to the west also on the "Imperial".
Here are the Pats, western junior rugby champions:

On the road to Nelson, whether
one enters from the east or
west, new beauties charm the eye
at every step. Murmuring pines
and flr tree cast their shadows
along sunny roads, while wayside
f.owers gladden the eye.
Even to winter, it ls equally picturesque, when snow crystals adorn
-.ho trees and shrubs, with flowery
jewels, their shadows casting strange
pictures across the soft snow cov-
ering the sleeping earth. For winter ln the mountains of British Col
umbia is a season of joyous sport
and out of door lite !
Along the way, as the Kootenay
makes its downward dash to the
Columbia, appear falls and rapids.
Two of these are utilized for electric
power, by the West Kootenay Power
and Light Company, which distributes power for three hundred miles,
and the City of Nelson power company, which provides its citizens
with heat and light and power from
this source. Beyond another of
these rapids is the famous fishing

fishermen ■ from all over the woi |
have tried their luck through da. I
and sunny days.
