Broomball Game
The broomball game at  the rink
on   Friday   night   drew   a larger j
crowd than the previous game and
excitement among   the spectators
ran high.   The Amazons had greatly strengthened their team and for
two periods the Benedicts were unable to score although in the third
period they   made   tl eir one  and
only tally and   shortly  afterwards
tbe Amazons evened the score and
thus it remained till the end of the
game.    Twas a gr6at   contest to
watch, the Benedicts  being superior in combination   play  and  the
Amazons   excelled   in    individual
rushes.    The Amazons looked real
cute -in  bloomers and while they
were out for revenge, they got it to
the extent  that they evened  the
score.    Three hearty   cheers  were
given by both teams for the splendid efforts put up by both  sides in
such a hard tuzzle.

The wearing of good clothes
puts- your occupation and" your

occupation in. your dress.

; The .joy of a large family is
sometimes "marred by the .difficulty in renting aliouse. Sturdy

character upon all large families.
The instinct of self-preservation
which is ia every man is not confined to his owe personal struggle ior existence and perhaps unconsciously makes him solicitous
for the life of his race, and most
men and women too will give
some preference to the man with

A Popular Prince
Duke of York Is Keen Sportsman nnd
Makes Many Friends
' Prince Albert, v. ho is the lallest of
(he Royal family was born at York
Cottage, Sandringiiam, on December
jl-1, .1S95, and has therefore just passed
j his 27lh birthday. lie was created a
I peer, with the titles Duke of York,
Earl of Inverness, and Baron Killafney
iu l!)2o. These peerages were held
by ihe King when Prince of "Wales,
and ihey merged in tho Crown when
His -Majesty succeeded to thc throne.
The titles represent the three kingdoms. With ihe Prince of Wales he
studied at Osborne and .Dartmouth,
and on his father's coronation on June
22, 1911, he was made a midshipman af Ihe age of 17. In 19.11 hc was
commissioned to IT.M.sl Cumberland,
and went on a cruise _�� the Atlantic.
A month after war was declared he
was gazetted to thc Colltngwood, and
while serving ou that ship had a sharp
attack of appendicitis, I'rom which he
made a good recovery after an operation, lie served in the Grand Fleet
at the Baitle of Jutland, was commended by Viscount Jellicoe, and was
promoted acting ''lieutenant. After
the war ihe Duke took up the practical
side of living, (Qualified :is a pilot, and
was gazetted a captain. He flew on
several occasions, but it did not suit
his delicate constitution, and further
living was vetoed. He i.s an adept
with the bat and the ball, and has
been'described as quite the best player of iiis generation in thc Royal family. In his younger days he used to
shine as a trick cyclist, performing before the limited group of the Royal cir.-
cle. In December hist the Duke drove
one of the London and Northwestern
Railway Company's newest and most
powerful engines from Camden Town
into Euston Station, and was presented with a driver's watch, bearing the
company's style and title. Thc role
of a second son is a difficult one, particularly when the elder brother is the
most popular man in the kingdom, but
the Duke of York has played it loyally
and well. Like his father and his
brother's, ho'is a-keen sportsman. He
has the same charming air of boyish
zest in lire as the Prince of Wales,
and makes friends wherever he goes.
During his brother's long tours of the
Empire many public eugagenients��fe!l
to his lot, and he discharged them
with marked success.     Only recently

due from various irrigation districts, there has been paid ioto the

government has loaned over 82,-

This item is cited as a debit on
the province, and while the province must repay the S2,000,000,
which it has borrowed for irrigation purposes, i t has an asset to
offset the liability much more
valuable than the amouut of the
liability. In fact, it is the life-
blood of the interior dry-belt,

Thames, near London, in June, 1668,
The "Eaglet" turned back from a
point near Hudson Strait, but thc
"Nonsuch" proceeded and on Sep-
tenvb'er 29th, 1668, anchored in the
South of James Bay. Tlien and there
a fort was built and named y Fort
Charles, and the river' flowing into
the Bay was named Rupert's River.
Owing to the carjgo of'furs brought
back by/the "Nonsuch" in'the summer of 1669, a charter for- trading
Tights was applied for and resulted in
the charter granted by King. Charles
the Second, on May 2nd, 1670, to
Prince Rupert and his associates
forming the "Governor and Company of Adventurers , of England
Trading into Hudson's Bay." And
thus bigin the great Company.
The exhibit includes a large number of important and exceedingly interesting documents and maps, as
well as a large collection of tools,
household utensils, and weapons of
by-gone days.
The later history of Western Canada is the history of the Canadian
Pacific Railway, thc building of
which resulted in the creation of a
nation west of the Great Lakes, and
these two great institutions are still
at work at their task of nation building, and preserving the history* of
Canada's past. The Canadian Pad-'
fie has also established an historic
museum at Lake Windermere, B.C.,
in memory of David Thompson, the
explprei_of_th_e_ Rockies.
