Soccer Game
All roads led to the hockey,
grounds at Kettle Valley on
Monday afternoon to see the.
much talked of"- football game
between teams representing
Greenwood and Kettle Valley.
It is reported that what the game
may have lacked in science was
made up for in amusement.
Weather conditions were ideal
and some'200 spectators turned
out to see the game, mostly in
automobiles.
Greenwood did" most of the
attacking which is evidenced by
the fact that the Greenwood goalkeeper was not called upon to
stop any direct shots on goal,
whereas the Kettle Valley custodian thrilled the crowd with his
masterly display; disposing of
some well directed efforts. The
game ended without any score
being registered.
Greenwood were best served by
their full backs, Stilwell and
Randall, aud centre forward
Cavaye. Those who caught the
eye in the Kettle Valley team
in addition to their goalkeeper
were Gane and Jacques both playing in the half-back line.
The visiting team were highly
pleased with the refreshments, so
thoughtfully provided, and are
unanimous in their expression
that the Kettle Valley team and
their supportors are ideal  hosts.
The teams were: Greenwood-
Taylor, Stilwell, Randall, Wallace, Muir (Capt.),'Berg, Morrison, Andreas, ..Cavaye, Mowat
and Henderson; Kettle Valley���
Harpur, _Pausey, Rock, EJ.
Richter, Gane,! Jacques, Wheeler,

When the men were at work erecting the Bishop, each had a rope well
secured close at. haud to which he
could cling when a big ware was signalled by the lookout, but getting the
men off when the weather turned
rough was a most difficult and dangerous business. Often they had to be
hauled by rope.! through the seas,
sometimes being completely under
water for several .socemds.
Even worse were the hardships oi
the builders of Skerry vore. A
storm arose so quickly that the men
on the rocks could not be taken off,
and tliey were there lor four days
without, food or water. Several wore
nearly dead when, with infinite
trouble, they were at last, rescued.
A  Valuable  Possession
Custodians of Historical Tobacco  Box
Are Heavily Bonded
In Caxton Hall, Westminster, London, in a doubly-locked safe, in a
strong-room reposes what is claimed
to be the most, wonderful tobacco box
in the world.
JMoro than 200 years ago it. was
bought for S cents at the Horn Fair,
Charlton, by an overseer of i.he City
of Westminster, and was used when
he and his brother overseers met. on
festive occasions. It was then so
sniall that it held only 3 oz. of tobacco. Today It is over 1 ft. high and
more than a foot square and is insur-
-ed for ?35,00O.
The secret of its.value is that the
.original box is now* enclosed in six
others. .Each box is cased in silver,
and upon it is tin engraved pictorial or
written record of the most important,
happenings in the history of the last
two centuries. One.of the last engravings to be added is a representation of the burial of the Unknown
Warrior in Westminster Abbey.
The owners of the box are the Westminster Past 'Overseers' Society,
which was formed in .1713. Every
year tho society appoints two custodians of tho tobacco box.

Users of Strange Currency
Hundreds of Rnces Have  Never Seen
Real Money
Probably the -nost amazing coin in
the world is to be fo.uul on Uap Island, among the "Caroline group.
Here they use circles of limestone,
with a hole in the centre through
wliich a pole is passed to hold it. up.
These stones vary in size from 6 inches lo 12 feet. O.f course, a large
amount of energy has to ba expended
to produce ihes.e. in fuel, Ihey are cut
from a quarry on an island three htm
dred liiiles away, and transported by
canoe! It must also be good'-cpiality
stone.
This coin never changes hands. Tho
method used is ihis. A man buys
from a friend, who takes him round
anil shows iiini the family stones, the
friend chooses one,, and it is his, but
remains outside tho house of the original owner; everyone Knows his own
coin so they can be safely left about..
Then When the first, man buys anything back from the original man, the
stone returns to him. '
They are so saiisliod with this sort
of trade that one man who carefully
made a large Foi, as they are called,
was returning home when his boat upset under lhe weight.and dropped tho.
stone   lo   tho .bottom   of   the   ocean".
However, his men swore, to the. size,
texture" and ,worth..of- ihef'stq.ie' ,:ind-

THE    SOLDIER'S    OUTFIT���SHOES
But. when a shoe is worn out by
hard service, lhat. old boot, is quite an
honourable object.
The worn-out shoes of the dear
boys who fought over no man's hmd,
or marched through the enemy's barrage, or stood for us in the blood and
water stained trenches; are relics of
honour.
A Spanish lullaby sings aboul tlie
angels so busy Unit they wore oui
their shoes, but when the little tattered angels got lo the doorway of ln-av-
en they wore given new ones.
"Little shoes are sold at lhe do.orway
of heaven,
And   io  all  lhe   tattered  Hi He  angels
are given.
Slumber, my darling baby."
That is the strange lullaby sung by
some   Spanish   mothers   io   put   their
babies to sleep.
There was a man named Bunyan,
who once had a wonderful dream. It
was about a sinner who became a
Christian and ""who travelled from
earth lo heaven. He was shown
many" wonderful places and saw wonderful things, and aiul wonderful experiences.
Among ihe places he visited was
the House Beautiful, and in it he was
shown a great many things, aud among
iheui his guides showed him "all manner of furniture wliich lheir_.Lord had
provided tor pilgrims, as sword,
shield, helmet, breastplate! all-prayer,
and shoes that would not wear out."
Was that not a wonderful filing io
have? How pleased your dad would
be if he could buy you everlasting
shoes. Well, thero arc such, and i
will tell you what Ihey are.
(1) An old legend lolls of a ftiaiden
whose footsteps left ilowers blooming.
Wherever she went, things were a
little brighter because she wenf^there.
1 ltnew a liule girl wlio was called
Little Sunshine,.'oecause she wtVs like
a ray of light. She tripped around
like a dancing sunbeam.
To clothe one's feet in merry sunshine is to get a covering that, can't
fade. Tliere. is no wear fo sunshine.

Windsor, Ont.���Canada can, without
any danger, absorb between 300,000
and 500,000 newcomer's .. yearly, and
steps should be taken immediately by
the Dominion Government to secure
settlers of a desirable type, E. W.
lleatty, president of the Canadian
Pacific Railway, told the Hoard of
Trade here.    ,
Among other proposals 'made by Mr.
TJeatty was one that the Dominion
Govcrnnienl float a $.1.0,000,000 bond
issue to he used in assisting setllers
to go on iho land. lie strongly urged the government to co-operate wiih
provinciiil bodies and semi-public bodies toward filling up the vacant lands
in Canada. Thc. government,should
forthwith pne ori a"vigorous advertising campaign to_attraet. settlers and
capital io Canada, ho said.
The country is suffering from too
great railway mileage and . too great
overhead, '-Mr.- Beatty continued, -it
wds-thc same way with a number of
manufacturers.'.. There was a heartfelt demand for national economy, and
much might be expected from a policy
which would spread the . burden ,ol:
taxation over more shoulders. Tho
sooner the - unoccupied fsinri'r lands of
the west were populated the easier it
would be for the- taxpayers of Ontario cities.

RESENTS THE U.S.
EXCLUSION ACT
Tokio.���The Yorozu Choho representing Ihe jingos, declines editorially that, the acfion of the United Slates
Congress in pasriug tho exclusion
legislation amounts io a challenge to
Japan. II. says the nation must*prepare'for whatever may come, even
war.
The lCokumin demands the immediate resignation  of  the ministry.
Numerous public bodies, including
the Associated Chambers of Commerce in Japan, tho American-Japan
Society,' aud the Japan Economic
Society have called urgent meetings
to discuss the immigration sliuatlon.
Officials do not. deny the probabilities of unpleasant popular reactions,
and it is lully expected that the opposition will make all possible political capital from the government's im-
migration'defeat. The action of Congress comes as a blow in the heat ot
an election campaign throughout-Japan.
Inflammatory campaign " speeches,
public indignation meetings, resolutions and bitter editorials, are all ex.
pected'as au aftermath of Washington's" exclusion legislation.
The go-erument, however, is determined to lake a vigorous stand
against any policy of retaliation. It
asserts it will do its utmost to curb
popular indignation and maintain the
fullest possibly friendly relations with
the United Stale?:- - f

SOVIET TRADE
DELEGATES BRING
RED LITERATURE
���."" Ottawa, Ont.���The Soviet .trade de- -
legation'  whicli  tame  recently  io  Ottawa to secure.government recognition
in its mission for the development, of-"
trade  between  Canada    and    liussia
were back here on a somewhat different errand.      They, wore asked to do-
some explaining.
It, appears that customs authorities,
going  through cases    of    books    ail
dressed to the delegation and whieh .
supposedly "wero to bc   presented    to-
private libraries, have   discovered   a
very    large    proportion of JJolshevilc
propaganda literature.
Some of it. Is an attack upon Christ
and    the   Christian   religion.      Other-
parts of ihe literature are in derision,
of   the   monarohial, or even, republican, forms of government and of the ���
countries  whore such  exists, and  iit..
eulogy of communism.      Those who-
have seen ihe sample declared them
to be a .peculiarly lurid "Ited."
A part of the delegation was haled1:
before some -high authorities here and
asked to explain the   importation   ol
such quantifies of .questionable matter.      The  explanation, it  is. ���under- ���
stood, was that it-was for private lib- ���
rnries.-and, in fact, some of the works
were text- books on"Russian geology ���
and tiie like which might be accept- ���
able, for such a purpose.     The explanation does not'so satisfactorily cover -
the other literature    and    especially
Ilaniing-.posters in propagation of the
Bolshevism, and authorities are now_
engaged -in. conducting a  further investigation.    .   ���        "

been    in    touch    with a sympathetic
element in Winnipeg and oilier cities .
and generally  their activities- are be- -

Do you get the fullest use oot of your telephone? Of course, you use it
to cal! up a friend, or place au order with a tradesman, but do you always
t,j^gik ot it when you need to do something personally? How many times,
would the telephone' save you time? If a business man, liow much money
would the telephone save you? Many trips could be saved, if the telephone
were used instead. '

sonal touch wliich brings both parties to a conversation close together. That
is why it has become one of the greatest factors of business and social life.    -
