Greenwood Wins
Hockey Championship
By winning the game at Grand
Forks last night by a score of
4 to 3 after 20 minutes overtime
play Greenwood holds the Boundary Intermediate Championship
which entitles th^jn to play with
other leagues for the B. O. Championship. The game was undoubtedly the hardest fought this
season and when time was called
the score stood 3 to 3. Overtime
had to be played 5 minutes each
way, and after 20 minutes of the
fastest and hardest game ever
played in the Boundary, Crowley
got the goal that cinched the
championship for Greenwood.
Grand F��rks bad their - team
greatly strengthened by"the addition of Pennoyer and Galipeau.
They played nine men and
Greenwoods six, the visitors not
using their "spares. The Grand
Forks baud was out and the rink
was crowded most of the spectators
admitting that the best team won.
Greenwood Trims Grand Forks
Displaying a brand of hockey
which-has not been witnessed on
local ice for many, a year, the
Greenwood hockey team outskated,
outgeneralled, outgamed and out-
everything-elsed the Grand Forks
team afe the rink last Friday night
and when full time was called the
Greenwood boys had four goals to
their credit while the hapless
Grand Forks boys only had one
lone tally.
From the very start our boys
put in the necessary, zip into the
game and all worked 'to better advantage than at any time this
season. Grand Fsrks was held
safe at all times. The local defense was never called upon feo
exerfe itself, though Taylor at
point made many of his sensational
rushes*, while Clerf afe cover, who
played that position for the first
time, showed great head work and
intercepted many a pass. Francis
in goal kept his eagle eye on the
disc all" the- time*:ami "made"some
good stops but was nofe overworked.
Crowley was tho great surprise of
the evening. He netted three
goals. Crowley (scintillated from
start to finish,, bringing the faithful
to their feefc time after time with the
brilliance of his corkscrew rushes.
Another man on fehe home team feo
show fine, style was Morrison at
centre, f Morrison's work was most
effective, shooting on fehe opponents
goal time after time and especially
thrillingVwas his back cheeking.
Hallett who' played . for, the first
timethis season-'was in fine form
and-- never - showed . tof better advantage.- -Hekepfefhis posifeion-and
made.- many. a7seneafeional rush.
His shooting ;.was -" excellent and
only the marvelous 'luck of the
goal keeper- stopped him from having many goals.to. his credit. He

eight finiunfees of7 play. - Of the

for Greenwood; second period 4 feo

John R. Jackson
Dies in Merritt
In the sudden death of John R.
Jackson, who died at Merritt on
Tuesday night, Jan.�����0tb, the
Greenwood District mourns the
loss of one of its greatest and
most respected pioneers. He had
been at Merritt to attend the
funeral of his brother, Archie,
and went to bed at 9.15. Shortly
afterwards one of the household
went to his room to find out what
cime Mr. Jackson wanted to be
tailed in the morning, aud found
him dead. He had apparently
died of heart failure.
The deceased was born in Ireland 66 years ago and came to the
United States, with his parents, at
an early "age, later moving tb
Grey County, Ontario, and when
a young man he answered the
call of the West, coming to the
Nicola Valley. He lived there for
a number of years and was married to Miss Tannahill. In 1890
located in Midway where he purchased the Bill Jenkins ranch,
and which he has successfully
run ever since. Besides this
ranch he owns a strip of grazing
laud Yi mile wide extending from
Pasco's at Boundary Falls to the
Midway coal mine. He was the
largest stock man in the district
and it was due to his efforts that
cattle was shipped to the coast
from time to time. He took an
active part in farmers organizations as well as all public matters.
���For two terms he was a member
of the Provincial Legislature for
Greenwood riding during the
McBride regime.
Besides his widow and five
children, Barbara, Gladys, Nora,
Eric .and Robert, there are two
brothers and a sister, Frank W.
Jackson, of Kamloops, Samuel
Jackson and Miss M. Jackson, of
He was a man of excellent
habits, fine moral character,
sturdy constitution, and he continued to be active in his accustomed pursuits1 till long past the
age at which men ordinarily drop
out of the ranks of the workers.
He met most of the conditions
and situations of life with a joke.
Hewas a practical matter of fact
man, but had his own peculiar
way of extracting merriment from
life as it went- along.
When he' died, full of years,
ready to be gathered to his
fathers, the grief that was felt
over his long aud useful career
was widespread and sincere. His
best monument will be the good
report he has left behind him in
a district in which he has so
prominently lived for 35 years.
_ _To_t'he be_reayed wife and_fam-
ily the sympathy of the entire
community goes out to them.
The funeral will be held   in
Midway on Sunday, Jan. 25th  at.
12 o'clock, Service to be conducted
by Rev. W.'R. Walkinshaw.

Copper Mines In
The Far North
Marvelous Human Machine      !   End  of the  Dreadnought  Era
Rich   Deposits   Near   Coronation   Gulf
Compare With  Lake Superior
Copper Region
Tlio Natural Bosourccs Intelligence
Service of Uie Department of Uiu Inferior at Ottawa, says:
In the -world search for economic |
minerals the nortliern porl ion of Canada has not escaped attention. As
early as .1770, Samuul Hearno, ono of
tlio Hudson's Hay Company's servants,
then at Fori Prince of "Wales, received instructions from London to investigate rumored copper mines. After a numbur of attempts Hearno accepted tho "offer of an .Indian chief to
"guide the white man to the 'far-off
metal.'" The trip v.as successful,
ihe outcvoppir.gs of copper wore
found, and Hearne named the river on
whose banks the discovery war. made
tlie Coppermine. Tlie river is situated in the Mackenzie district of the
northwest territories and flows into
Coronation Gulf of tlio Arctic Ocean.
Tho copper deposits are ���niuatod at
what ls known a.s tlie Coppermine
Mountains, some sixty miles from the
mouth of the river. The Scientific
American in reviewing a number of reports on tin. area, compares it with lho
Lake Superior copper region. At Coronation Gulf the copper-bearing belt
is said to bo Hi miles wide and of unknown length, whilo at Bathurst Inlet,
au arm of Coronation Gulf, The area is
said to bo Go miles long with a lviaxl
inula width, of 25 miles. "Taken altogether," says tho Scientific American, "ihe indications are favorable for
fhe existence of high-grade mines as
well as larger low-grade deposits In
this region. "We have, therefore, it Is
probable, a region comparable, let us
say, to the Lake Superior copper region,'on the Arctic shores."
Speaking of the possibilities of mining enterprises in lho northern field,
llie late Dr. James Dougless, who
headed an expedition in 1911 to investigate the copper deposits, at. the
meeting of the Canadian Mining Institute in 1D1?,, said:
"One has to recollect'that "for many

The new ships will be entirely different from any others in the world,
the paper says.      They will be both
floating fortresses and airdromes, aud
will have a radius of action covering
thousands ��� of   miles.     Nine   sixteen-
inch guns will be-, mounted on each in ,
three turrets, all forward.     There will;
be no guns on thc after-part, which .
will constitute a flight deck, and Unships will, carry their own flying corps
and planes.
Another feature, the Express says,
is that there piobably will be no funnels, the waste of the furnaces being
discharged through pipes running
alongside ilie stern.
Tho distribution of the armor will
also bo revolutionary. Tlie magazines���like ihe guns���being all forward, and <is the usual armor bolt extending for three parts of ihe ship's
length wiil be. unnecessary, the weight
���save on the .'ides���can be added to
the deck protection against high-angle
fire ;tnd aerial bombs. There will
also be possibly- more than one armored dock, thus giving successive means j
of protection.

CanadVs Early Currency
Playing Cards Were Used As Cash In
1714      '   F
Playiiig cards were currency, in'Canada a little more than 200 years ago.
A jack of diamonds or si six of spades
with tho-'Vignaturc of tlio Governor of
New France on.the back or across the
face, (.together with the value of the
particular bit of pasteboard, would
procure the esesntiails of life or perhaps some of the luxuries the Crinada
of-1714 had to offer.
The playing card currency did not
last long, and. today "there are only
a few tattered fragments of it in
.existence," ;md these are thc properly
of the Government of France. Dr.
(!. A. Dought, Dominion archivist,
who has recently returned to Can-
ad;, with trunks full of treasures of
historical significance, has brought
back accurate copies of the playing
������ard money. While in Franco he
had an artist iaake^ reproductions of
lho fragments. The actual card
money was very common in Canada
in the early part of thc ISth century;
and in the nrchives there are many
pieces of the plain cards with the writing required to make, thorn negotiable
upon them, but tho playing cards were
less common. Dr. Doughty feels that
the copies'brought-back to Canada will
be most valuable as . records and of

Noted Waiter's Flight
From London to Paris
Why Plane Remains In Air Puzzle To
Yale Professor
William Lyon Phelps, of Vale University, writes as follows in Scrib-
ner's for January :._We flew from London to Paris. For the first time in
my life, I travelled in an airplane.
There is a daily service both ways,
and there aro passengers who take it
as a matter of course. In our. airbus, seme were reading newspapers,
and some were asleep. My own sensations were different from wha't I
had expected. .
xEvery one of us had "boon weighed,
and, assigned to a particular seat in
the airship, with the idea of. trimming
her properly. Pieces of cotton *were
doled out, and our ears plugged so
thattlie noise of the machinery became "a muffled and rather agreeable
I had supposed that we- should soar
into the air *nnd..skim along like a
���bird.;. But it seemed to mc that we
rose like a freight train, and plodded
through the air with an elephantine
motion. ' This was the only thing disconcerting; 1 wanted to be higher up
and fly faster.
' We had a rather violent hesid wind,
and as the sea was white, it was evidently rough; but, looking down from
fifteen hundred..feet, the waves were
flattened into wrinkles. The whole
journey was an experience I would
not have missed for anything, but. I
still cannot understand why that mass,
containing tons and tons of weight,
remained in the air. I am, however,
glad that it did.   ���

The weather in New Vork City is
now being predicted with .a-remarkable degree of'correctness from three

U.S. Brigadier - General Claims
Chlorine Gas Is Antidote
The value of chlorine gas as a curative for colds apparently is a subject
upon wliioh Brigadier-General Fries of
the army warfare service, and Major
Henry Jf Nichols of the army medical
corps, think 'differently.
Major Nichols, in a recent address

of improving
stocks of seed
Saskatoon.���"The .,;'progress ire
Jhave-made in the past in field husbandry is only a foundation on which
to build greater things for the future,"
declared Prof.. Manley ..Champlin, pro-
. lessor of-iWd-husbandry at the University of Saskatchewan in aitaddress
on "Looking forward in field husbandry" at the agricultural societies
convention. "At the university, wo
must continue to study the fundamental principles of crop rotation and soil
' productivity. We must continue to
test new varieties of field crops and
compareethem with the old ones to
prevent frauds being perpetrated and
to piovu the value of really superior
productions of the plant breeders art.
We must continue io produce elite
stocks of seed of the best varieties,
giving lliem every attention that unremitting toil and thought can give.
"We must keep on trying to develop,
through scientific plant breeding
methods, vaiieties that are better for
our conditions thau any wo now have.
The 'future of the field is unlimited.
We need a rust resistant wheat that
will also be resistant to blights of various kinds and that will possess a
sturdy si raw and good milling quality.
That is a large order, but with the
wonderful advance that has been made
in the science of plant breeding during recent years, it ought to be within
ihc range of possibility. -We now
have rust resistant varieties of wheat
but all of them possess somo serious
defect.- For example: Acme wheat
resists rust hut it is susceptible to
blight; Kola wheat resists rust but
lodges-, basily; Pentad wheat resists
rust -but is of poor market quality;
Kanred wheat is very early and dodges
rust but does not yield as well as tho
medium or late varieties.

For over twenty years the question
of Union between the Congregational,
Methodist and Presbyterian Churches
in Canada has been under careful and
prayerful consideration. The three
Churches have at length given their j
final deliverance and the Union will be
consummated on ihe 10th clay of June..
Throughout our Boundary country
i. e. from EJholt to Carmi, Christian
Valley and S. W. to Anarchist Mountain the Presbyterian Church has for
the past few years been carrj'ing on
Services for all other than Roman
Catholics and Anglicans. This arrangement will be continued, with this
difference, that from date of Consummation of Union i.e. 10th June next,
the Minister will be a Minister of The
United Church of Canada and members
in full Communion will automatically
become members of that Church.
It is possible that there are some
throughout this wide territory who do
not desire to enter the United Church.
If so, the Minister would be glad to
hear from them. For the present
however, auch members may rest
assured that continuing in fellowship
with the congregations going into the
United Church, in no way disqualifies
them for full membership in 'the Presbyterian Church of Canada, i.e. the
seceding bod}'. In the event of Church
members moving from this district, the
Minister will gladly furnish Letters of
Introduction or Disjunction Certificates, and such' transfer's-*will vbe
honored by all or any Protestant
Christian Congregations. *
No vote was taken in this district,
but on several occasions the Minister
made statements regarding the Union
question. No one expressed a desire
for a vote, therefore with the mother
congregations of .the Presbyterian
Churches in Canada we become part of
The United Church in Canada. ^
All congregational rights and
priviliges are retained as at present.
For the sake of Western Canada,
Union is necessary. Co-operation has
been tried for years, .but cannot be
counted as- successful.- Inter denominational : jealousies . proved .a great
