Nine games had to be played before the Boundary league championship could be decided. At the
begiuning-of the season a six game
schedule was drawn up and as the
teams were tied at the end, home
and home games were played which
also tesulted in a tie. All the
games played were keenly contested
each game appearing to be better
than the previous one, but the odo
played on local ice on Tuesday
night was without doubt the best,
cleanest and fastest of the season.
Greenwood won a decided victory
by a score of 3 to 1 and it is ad-.
mitted by all that Grand Forks
was outclassed.
A special train was secured to
bring 120 Grand ForkB supporters
and with large crowds from Midway, Eholt and other points the
rink was packed reminding one of
the old days.
Right from the start there was a
burst of speed. Both teams made
several rushes and the defense had
a busy time. Taylor in a spectacular solo rush passed the "whole
Grand Forks team and scored the
first goal"for Greenwood. Morrison
and McDonald made brilliant
rushes and made shot after shot.
Murray and Clerf were at there
best. In-the second period Murray
scored the second goal for Greenwood from an angle shot. Through
out this period there was" wild
Spes'iV.Greenwded- showing "better,
combination than their opponents.
The visitors worked hard and tried
to score but., found the grade a
steep one. Blundeirstopped,some
difficult shots and saved the situation many times,' though the visitors net was bombarded more fre-
quenfcly.'and Atwood ��� had to exert
himself to the limit
In the'ftnal period Iboth- teams
seemed to be hitting a faster pace,
excitement-'-" was intense and the
players took every,, opportunity to
try "and score. ' McDonald made a
wonderful individual rush' and
passed the disc to .Morrison who
scored the third .goal for Greenwood:" "A littlelater"Grahd"Forks
scoied their only tally, thus saving-
^whitewash. Th,e'battle,continued
to the last second witlfa"7vim an<3
4t times the stickhftridling approached the miraculous. Wood
was the star in this period though
every man worked at top notch and
all. deserved the praise accorded
them by the fans.        *
Great credit is due to Roy Mc-
Leod for the way he referreed the
game. Roy Btood for no rough
play and always controlled the situation with decisiveness', impartiality and promptness. J. Morrison as judge of play.-had an easy
time of it-aB the game " was clean
there being only two, penalties.
The fans were pleased with the
game and its result. Greenwood
retains th&McBrida and Boundary
cups.   Twas a famous victory. <
After several months shut down
the Providence mine has started
to_get things in shape to resume
operations immediately. 0The
compressor and motor has already
been moved from near the'Greenwood Phoenix Tunnel to the mine
and is now being put in place. As
soon as the cement foundation
has dried and settled work in the
mine will go on with a greater
force than has yet been employed.
Several men ate already at work
getting everything in spick and
span shape. Mr. Madden, of
Chicago, is expected in town this
week and the annual general
meeting held in Greenwood.
It is the intention of the company to go down to the GOO. and

Will Carry Messages Until Wireless
Is Installed.
In view of the fact that the installation of wireless apparatus will be 5m-
I possible in the north country this
year, the Imperial Oil Company .are
making arrangements to maintain a
line of communication between the
flying men and their bases by the service of pigeons such as were, used to
such great advantage in the war. It
is said that birds will be carried on
every plane during every trip north.
In the event of a plane having to
make a forced -landing from engine,
radiator, or other trouble, a pigeon
will be released carrying back a message for help to the base aeodromc.
Forced landings may occur at any
point along the line of route and in
locations that will be far removed
from the abode of settlers. Here the
pigeons will be of special' advantage j
for they can be immediately released'

Despoiling Forests
Great Medicinal Tree Disappearing
Rapidly From Pacific Coasy
A warning that foreign cutters are
despoiling the forests .of British Col-
umb.a by destroying, root and .branch,
all the native supplies of the cascara
sagrada bush, is being sounded by
botanists and timber cruisers, interested in preserving this valuable medicinal bark. The legislature's to be
asked at the coming session to -pass
legislation to preserve this and other
valuable barks and herbs from destruction. .      .
The cascara, referred'to in botanical works of ten years ago as the
"Pacific Coast's great gift to mankind," is said.now to be/so depleted
in Oregon and Washington as the re-'
[.suit of -feckless gathering that there
is no longei any to be found within
reach of transportation.' Prices have
risen from two cents to more than
ten cents a pound.

Alberta's Sand Deposits
Should Prove of Great ^Commercial
Value to Canada.
In outlining the possibilities of the
extensive deposits of bituminous sand
along the Athabasca River in Alberta,
S. C. Ellis, engineer -of the Federal
Department of Mines, said that under
reasonable market and transportation
conditions this sand should prove of
great commercial value to Canada. He
suggested .usir#g this material for-road
construction as it had already proved
valuable for this-work. " The transportation of this material .seeme'd to
"be . its only hindrance. ' If suitable
freight rates could be- obtained, -the
sand should be" of immense ..value.
Apart', from the experiments ' tKat
have taken place,.measurements of the
extent of the land show that'the deposits occur.at intervals, over.approximately. 200- mile's round about Mc-

Some of us think of fritters as
verging on the luxurious, but the fritter is one of the ways of serving leftovers that hotels���those.great-institutions who make a very particular
study-of economy���find very satisfactory. Of course, the fritter, even at
its-best, is not food for invalids or little children or folks with impaired
digestion, but a properly made, fritter
is a gastronomic delight.
In discussing fritters as an economical dish with 'a very frank little
western 'woman recently, she remarked': "But you need deep fat" and
a deep pan to-make 'em, and all that
costs money���how can you call that
She- was ���: right in that one needs
deep fat for.frying the fritters and a

the same fat.     This was not true in

With the pot half filled with fat,
you arc ready to heat the frying
medium . to the proper temperature
for fritters. A rough way of estimating whether or not the fat is of
the right temperature is to look closely at it" to ascertain if it is "Still." It
is no longer moving as it was at the
beginning of the heating.
When smoke -begins to come off,
you may know that your fat is burning. This impairs "the use of the fat
and consequently is not economical.
If the fat shows signs oi smoking,
remove it at once from the siovc until it has coofed' down.
And, during a frying, under uo circumstances leave fb?e hot fat on the
fire'while you kavc the room if only
for.a moment. It.is safer to remove

A girl that is uot neatly dressed is called a sloven, and
no one likes to look at her. Her face may be pretty, and
her eyes bright, but if there is a spot of dirt on her cheek,
and her fingers'ends are black with ink, and her shoes
are uot laced or buttoned up, and her apron is dirty, and
her collar not buttoned and her skirt is torn, she cannot
be liked. Learn to be neat and when you have learned it.
it will take care of itself.
Hints for Board of Trade
Following up our article of last
week we again publish a few more
suggestions for the Board of Trade.
This orgtuizatiou is uot a religious
body, but secular and deals with
civic problems from a basin ess
standpoint. As a straight business
proposition, right over the counter
���jaiid in cash register terms, the
Board of Trade should be interested
in law7 enforcement and the moral
and social conditions of the community. It is said that there is
more crime in Xew York than all
Greats Britain; there are more
deaths by violence in Chicago than
rebellion ridden Ireland. This ex-'
perience oi big U.S. cities will help
to convey to smaller cities the first
importance of right living condi-
tioEe. Here are some more tests
of a town:���
7. Accessibility���"Can    we   go
and come easily?    Does  the  town
have adequate railroad connections,
and trairi service?"
S. Business���"Can I make good
use of capital-in-your- town?, Are
there- good banking facilities? Up-
to-date' stores? - Favorable" labor
conditions?" A prosperous farming
territory?      . '     ' -'
'9. Employment���"Can  I  count
'.on .co-operation from organizations
��� making it their   business   to help
introduce and establish'��� hew  com-"
"mereial interests .and. to  welcome
new citizens?1'       -      '- '���'.   ;
:- -. 10. ���Progressiveness-���"Shall "I
find that I. am. iii a live- town hav-
."-ing-a progressive city government,
: active civic organizations," lire pro-
- tectioii and'a pull together-spirit in.
everything, a-town with'"a future?''
.. If you can have help enough to keep your household in
perfect running order without making a machine of yourself, do so by all means. White floors are lovely,
shining tinware is very fine, spotless windows and highly
polished silver are a delight; the mending basket, emptied
evetw week is much to be desired, but there are things of
more importance and if it all depends on one pair of hands,
one back, and one set of nerves, for Heaven's sake, for
your own sake, for your children's sake, don't.

Girls of a marriageable age do not like*to tell how old
they are, but yon can find out by following the .subjoined
instructions, the young lady doing the figuring: Tell her
to put down the number of the month in which she was
born then to multiply it by 2, then to add 5,, then to multiply it by SO, then to add her age, then to subtract 365,
then to add 115, then tell her to tell you the amount she
has left. The two figures to the right will tell you. her
age and the remainder the month of her birth. For example, if the amount is 822, she is. twenty-two years old
and was .born in the eight mouth (August).    Try it.
