Winter is not the time to travel. -Not only is the cold weather
uncomfortable, hut one is liable to catch cold, if nothing worse.
The long distance is just the thing at all times, and in winter especially. There is no need to travel wheu the party wanted can be
spoken to, just as ii the interview were face to face. An interview
by long-distance "telephone is always personal and eminently
satisfactory. -

.""'������ The Boundary League Hockey
Championship at the local rink on
Friday night was. the best- of the
season and the two teams battled
for one hour and nine minutes before the���winning counter came to
Grand Forks. The game was just
what the length of it shows���a terrific battle in which-the fourteen
men involved fought until exhaustion robbed them of their speed,
until they were all but ready to
drop. They back checked until
they were blue in the face, the defensive work in enemy territory
being little short of wonderful.
Grand Forks had a change in
their line-up, by playing Morrell,
recently from Seattle, and Sud
Smith an old Greenwood player
who certainly strengthens the weak
link in the Grand Forks team.
Battling for-S^minutes without
registering a score and playing
many varieties of hockey, the game
satisfied the fans that it was well
worth seeing. Grand Forks had
the best of the first period although
no goal could be scored. Taylor,
Wood and Blundell broke up
rushes galore and not a few times
did one of the trio halt the Grand
Forks sharpshooters. The forwards worked hard and accom-
plisSeda lot of good work and
their team play is much improved.
Grand Forks resorted^to long distance shooting which had our boys
non plussed for awhile. -The only
way to counteract these tactics is
to rush the puck and attack close
and hard. Keep right on and
dont back up. Each of the goal
keepers had his work cut oufe to
guard his charge. By actual count
24 shots were rained on Blundell
and 19 on Atwood. When ife is
considered thafe oufe ot 43 drives
straight at the nets only three '3
escaped the goalers, ife must have
beeu pretty nifty work on their
The second period was resumed
with a greater amount of zest on
the parfe of the local boys and fehey
certainly had the. besfe of fehis period
by long odds. Grand Forks' however scored and this put greater
vim intp_ the game. Greenwood
scored; a clean one which was
noticed by a score of spectators bat
went unhieded by the umpire and
was; not allowed. The period closed
with Greenwood bombarding the
Grand Forks, nets.. ���.':.'.-'���
. The third period found the fans
in a high; tension ami Greenwood
with one goal behind worked like
Trojans to even the score. -'The
rubber disefwas chased, backwards
arid forwards during .the .period
without any let up until one minute
before time wheti Clerf on ;a pass
from, Murray shofe.one passed , At-.
wood and.evened the score. : '"X-
.-��� Overtime hadrfeo.be played and
it was anybody's game",L For nine
gruelling-minutes no goal, was registered iind ife looked as though it
would be a battle of endurance
when Grand; Forks scored, a lucky
one. Ife. looked suspiriously like
&n offside but it was allowed.
NOTES.   . S
Friday night's fracas was crowded with thrills.
Not once during fehe entire 70
minutes did the teams relax in
their efforts to score.

Mining News
Last year's average selling price'
of copper, 17.45 cents a pound,
was the lowest for any year since
1915, when the, average selling
price was 17.27 cents, says the
Wall Street Journal,
In January 1920, popper sold up
around 19 cents a pound. Bnt
thereafter the trend was gradually
downward. In September it sold
under 16 cents, in November under
14 cents, and in December at the
lowest price since 1914 ���12.50
cents a pound.
'.The first half of 1920 was marked by large exports, but in July
they fell of materially. So did
domestic buying. ��� The rate of exchange remained so low thafe Euro- ���
pean buyers could nofe easily take
over, large quantities of copper
without an extension of credit.
Curtailed production and closing
down of mines undoubtedly has
put the industry in a healthier
condition thau it has occupied at
any time since the war. Copper
experts , agree that when present
stocks are obsorbed the industry
will be in good position and that
the demand for copper will soon be
greater than it has ever been before.
The Granby Consolidated Mining & Smelting company all but
entirely won its two appeals
against a decision of Justice Gregory who some months ago gave a
judgement in favor of the E. & N.
railway company, seriously affecting the rights of Granby and its
coal operations at Cassidy, on
Vancouver Island, says a Vancouver report. In two judgements
delivered Granby wins absolutely,
in what is known as the Dunlop
case and the propriety of tbe provincial legislation in this regard is
upheld. Justice E&erfes' dissented"
from the remainder of the court in
tbis judgement.
In the Ganner ease, title" feo- the
property i9 found feo be vested in
the Granby company, but there is
a finding that in case of assessment
of damages against Granby in respect to the coal rights these shall
be considered as feo the coal "in
nature." , The outside price .at
this rate is stated to be a matter of
$150 an acre so that in respect feo
the total oF 200 acres the outside'
amount of the claim thafe Granby,
may have to settlejs unoffically
estimated at $30,000. The original
charge against Granby, had the
case gone against the company,
.might fhave__run_from- a -faalf-a-
million to a million dollars. Justice McPhillips dissented in the
Ganner case.
Notice, was immediately given
by council for the E. & N. thafe
application would be made for an
appeal to the privy" council.

blolches, the'muddy complexion that
disfigures so many faces. To have
good health, a good complexion and a
cheerful manner, the blood must bc
kept rich, red and pure. This is easily
done through the usc of a blood enriching tonic like Dr. Williams' Pink
Pills. The whole mission of this
medicine is to help enrich thc blood
which reaches "every nerve and every
organ in thc body, bringing w:th it
health, strength and new activity.
That is why people who occasionally
use Dr. Williams' Pink Pills always
feel bright,  active and strong.
Mrs. E. E. Cook, Simcoc,- Out.,

blood is in an anaemic condition, she
says "I havc been a sufferer for some

thc system. 1 suffered from pains
in the back, twitching of the nerves
and muscles, my appetite was poor, I
had inditrstion and'would get drowsy

almost alwavs cold,/and though I was
constancy doctor'ng, the medicine I
took did not help mc; I had practically given up hope of good health,
until a friend from Hamilton came
to visit me, and urged mc to try Dr.
Williams' Pink Pills. It took some
persuasion, but. finally ..I consented to
try th'tn.. I have reason to be
grateful that I "did, for aftcr using
seven boxes I felt like a new person.

The Home Circle
This is becoming a wonderful world. Everything- is
done by steam pressure. When the great Atlantic cable
vvas being lovyered it was on all tongues as the greatest
project the world had ever known, and he who was the
possessor of au inch piece of the twisted wire was rich'in
relics. Now we have almost forgotten there is such a
thing. The air'ship and other great inventions "are now
in the limelight, but in a few years these, will move into
the shadow of some mightier scheme.
We note that the metropolitan papers, report that one
of the wealthy men so well managed his fortune of twenty
millions as to double it in three years. Suppose he has,
what theu? What has he made by thus increasing his
wealth, except increased worriment to keep the run of his
increased wealth. With his increased wealth In eats no
more quail and turkey than he did when worth ten millions.
He dresses no better and has a thousand times less fun,
We beat him on the sleep and have no law suits with
tenants aud trespassers. Robbers lay for him cvery time
he goes out of doors after dark. The man with sixty
millions of dollars has sixty millions of troubles. To keep
thc run of his rents, bonds and real estates keeps him at
hard work fourteen hours a day and yet he only gets three
square meals a day, which is just what we obtain without
auy millions, any tenants and only have to work eight
hours a day to credit up all who pay their subscription.

A despatch from Calgaiy states
that Peter Veregin, head of the
Doukhobors iu Canada, has a new
scheme of conserving the world's
meat supply. He hopes.J;hat the
eating of meat in the civilized
world will be entirely done away
with, and a diet of preserved
blood, drawn from live cattle, will
take its place. Mr. Veregin has
made repeated tests and is convinced that the form of sustenance
that he proposes will be . far more
beneficial .to the human race :than
meat can be, and, further, that its
world-wide, adoption -'will cause, the
world's supply" of cattle to be.replenished in a very short space of
time.  '.  -       -     -        '.       -X. -
