Brilliant and at times sensational
hockey was dished up to the local
fanB 'last Friday nighfe when the
first game in the Boundary league
was played and Grand Forks went
down to defeat by aecoreof 3 to 1.
For an opening game ifc was hard
fought and well played, although
some of the. players showed lack of
training, The game was nip and
tuck from the start to the final.
Only for aboufe 5 minutes in fche
second period did the game seem to
lag. The first period ended wifeh
Greenwood one goal to their credit,
Geo. Clerf the right wing star
scored after pretfey pieces of work.
In fche second period both teams
seemed to show signs of fatigue and
long, distance shooting was indulged
in and Taylor who played a fine
defence all the way through scored
from a long distance shot. Shortly
after Grand Forks scored their one
and only tally in some pretty team
play. Right here we must give
the visiting team credit for playing
good and clean,|they played hard all
fche way and deserved their well
earned goal. If this brand of hockey is kept up during the Beason
we shall have no fault to find. During this period Hallett met with a
slight accident and E. Morrison
relieved. This young player promises to be one of ".Greenwood's
best in a very short time. End of
second period Greenwood 2; Grand
Forks 1.
The third period was the besfc of
all and there were visions of overtime in ther minds'of many of the
fans for the visitors were trying
hard to even^the score. A terrific
pace was kept up by both teams
nntil a few minutes to the end
when Wood Becured the rubber and
went through the whole bunch and
scored the third goal for the_hame
team. Greenwood had the edge of
play in the first and third periods.
It is hard to say who played the
best game for Greenwood. All
played hard. Murray on left wing
is a wonder, his shots are true and
wicked. He was ^opposed to the
visitors swiftest man but Bob was
there all the time. Greenwood's
wings cannofc be improved. Hallett
at centre and McDonald rover,
were good and their back checking
saved many a situation, but their
passing was poor. With a little
more team work and feeding the
wings their playing will be unexcelled. Only praise can be given
Taylor and Wood as backs. They
are a veritable stonewall-and Johny
on the spot all the time, while
Blundell in goal is a marvel. He
is a goal keeper cf great renown
and stopped many a wicked one.
Al. Morrison referreed the game
and his work met witlffche'approv-
al of fans and players alike. Judging from the enthusiasm shown by
the supporters Boundary hockey
is in for a bumper season.
The officials were: Timekeepers,
G: McMynn, J. D. Morrison; Umpires, G. Boug, and E. McMynn.

Prices For Clover Seed
Great Reduction ns Compared With
Last Year's Price.
Farmers generally will be glad to
! learn that there is a great reduction
in thc price of clover seeds this year
as compared with last year's prices.
There should be a 50 per cent, decrease and perhaps more. This will
mean much for thc country as clovers
have not been used so freely since the
prices shot up so high. With substantial reductions in prices clovers
will be more generally used which
means building up our 6oiis.      Many

Regimental Flags returned to
France by Germany, and represented
to be the colors captured inJ870, have
been found not to be the flags'of any
French Regiment. This misrepresentation was not discovered until quite
recently when a member of the
French Government noticed that the
surrendered standards did not have
the eagles which were on the flags in
1870. A messager was accordingly
despatched to Germany to demand
possession of the required flags. The
governments of.Berlin and Munich,
however, profess ignorance of their
whereabouts, and decline to part with
any of the present colors.

Experiments Being Made to Evolve
An Altogether Different Style of

Elaborate experiments' arc going
on in England to find a type of foot
gear for horses which, if successful,
will make the horseshoe as it has been
known for 1,400 years as cxtincf as
the dodo. The present hard, flat
pavements, designed principally to
sustain motor traffic, present a surface
on which ordinary horseshoes either
slip or cause objectionable indentations, and so the authorities are joining th.e humane societies in trying to
devise a new form. None of those
so. far tried out bears the slightest resemblance to the old symbol of good
luck.
New Companies in Manitoba.
Figures just issued show that new

1920. The total capitalization, of

estimate shows that buildings valued
at $11,000,000, or $2,000,000 more lhan
in 1920, will be constructed in, thc city
of Winnipeg this ycar.

Pool Question
Praise For Canadians

Divergent Views Are Held On Milch
Vexed Subject".
With suggestions from all sides, the
question of a farmers' wheat pool at
the moment holds the centre of the!
stage  in   Saskatchewan.      And : with j
new proposals:breaking    into    print.i
every ��� few  days  the agrarian are iri j
a dilemna.      The first plim  broached was the tentative plan of the Canadian   Council   of   Agriculture.    Next
th& Saskatchewan    Government   announced the appointment   of   James
Stewart,    former    chairman    of ' the
Canada Wheat Board, and F. W. Rid-
deil, of the Saskatchewan Co-operative Elevator Company, as a commission to study the question of wheat
marketing and report to the government.
...   In making thc appointment thc government announced that it "did not
necessarily   mean   opposition   to   the
"scheme    produced    by the Canadian
Council of Agriculture."
Following this, Ottawa despatches
bring lo the west rumors that thc
Dominion Government is considering
the situation ,-"secking, if possible,' to
spear the various farmers' co-operative enterprises in the west and dividing the' farmers' vote."
As far as the plan of the Council
of Agriculture is concerned, officials
of thc Saskatchewan Grain Growers
are opposed. J. B. Musselmari, managing director of the S.G.G., and also
a member of thc Canadian Council of
Agriculture, declares that the council's tentative contract which has been
published with the sanction of the
council never came before, the council
..- as a whole, and the council as a body
still knows nothing about it.
"I don't think any honest man could
ask a farmeri.id sign such a contract,"
says Mr. Mussehnan. In sounding a
note of warning he says the farmers
in contracting to deliver all their
wheat for five years to one' conccrp,
as planned in this scheme, would be
to bind the farmers hand* and foot.
The formation of such a. pool, he
states,, would prc-supposc thc use of
the marketing facilities of thc two big
farmers' companies, and these, he
points out,, do not reach more than
forty per cent, of the grain marketing
..   centres in the west.
A successful pool of the sort advocated by the Council of Agriculture
would mean, 6ays Mr. Mussclman, thc
elimination of.every elevator company
in -Western Canada, and would bring
about the most herculean   fight   over
���-"��� grain    marketing   ever   seen.     This
statement  is   interesting  in  view of
the fact that the Provincial. Government, since 1911, when thc Saskatchewan Co-opcralive Elevator Company
was formed,  has  with  25,000  share-
.   holders, invested over   $5,O0Q,000   in
grain marketing facilities.
.   On the proposal of the formation of
a voluntary pool, Hon. George'Lang-
_ley,, provincial minister of municipal,
-affairs,    member, of    the'   Canadian
Council of Agriculture, and vice-president, of the. Saskatchewan Cp-opcra-
- - tivc Elevator Company,' is   cautious.
.He.   enunciates    three factors which
largely.ensured the. success   .of   the
wheat board; and.'which would bc absent in a-voluntary pool.
. ..They  are":" (1)   The- Wheat  Board
had  complete  control  of  the whole
crop of thc Dominion'; (2) they had
control of all the local and'terminal
storage facilities;  (3).they were rc-
:,   -licved-of-ail-financial anxiety.	
.   .    The. action of thc Manitoba 'farmers at their annual.convention in en-
."   dorsing-'the scheme of the Canadian
Council ;6f Agriculture,   in   view   of
.the apparent, divergent view, in Sas-.
katchewan, . indicates'  that the solu-
��� tioh of the problem is still-far off.
Duke   of   Devonshire   Was   Struck
With Spirit of Canada During the
Dark Days of 1918.
The. Quebec Women's Canadian
Club was addressed recently by His'
Excellency the Duke of Devonshire,
who-spoke of thc accomplishments of
the League of Nations. Referring
incidentally to his tenure of office in
Canada, he said he was proud to have
been associated with the Canadians
during the great war. If there was
one thing that struck hini more particularly iu this connection than any.
other, lie said, it was the spirit manifested by the Canadians in _the dark
days of 1918 when 'the Germans
broke through the Allied lines in
France. ��� ,
A vote of thanks was moved in
French to His Excellency by Ma lame
Jules Tcssicr, who giffirmed that the
French-Canadians were loyal adherents to thc Crown and ended by saying that its special representative in
Canada, one of the old aristocracy of
England which had never neglected
its national duties, had himself lived
up to the motto of "noblesse oblige."

Faint and Dizzy Spells,
Weakness and
Shortness of Breath.
You .can generally tell when, the
heart is affected by the faint and dizzy
spells, the shortness of breath, palpitation/throbbing, irregular beating,
smothering sensations', weak, sinking,
all-gone feeling, choking sensations,
etc.
Many men and women become, rundown and worn out when otherwise
-they could be strong'and healthy if
they would only pay some attention
to the first sign of heart weakness.
No remedy will do so much to makc
the heart regain strength and vigor,
regulate its beat and restore It to_ a
healthy and normal condition as Milburn's Heart and Nerve Pills.

I could hardly sleep without sitting

they have helped me wonderfully as
I have improved very much."

Do Not Like Blue
French Scientist Says Flies Hate This
Color,
According- to a French scientist;
flics havc intense hatred for thc color
blue. Rooms decorated in blue will
help to keep out flies. A.room
sweetly perfumed and decorated with
Llue as the prevailing motif, is sure
to drive flies away. Flies do not like;
oil pf lavender, so.that if equal quantities of the oil and water'arc put in a
common glass atomiser..and sprayed
around rooms, where flies . are, .they
will disappear. * Geranium, heliotrope,

offensive to flics,, and thcy especially

Great Oil Fields
Present Scarcity of Oil Not Going to
Continue Beyond Four
Years.
Miss Agnes C. Laut, in the Financial  Post,  declares  lhat  the present
scarcity of fuel oil for ships is not go-
*ing to continue beyond four years.
Miss Laut bases this calculation on
thc discovery of "three great new oil
fields in 1920." These three areas
are in Columbia, Wyoming and
Northern Canada.
, Miss Laut's prominence as an investigator of economic conditions, her
vast knowledge of the north country,
her acquaintance with the men who
are opening thc northern oil territory, lend additional weight to- hcr
declaration that the country beyond
Edmonton "will be pouring out its
liquid fuel supplies of oil within four
years"���just as soon as pipe lines and
refineries can be built to handle the
output.
Professor. Allan, of the University
of Alberta, warns against undue optimism . regarding the Mackenzie
River oil field on the score that, however much oil may be there, and he
is very sanguine about quality, it can
have no economic value until it can
be brought to market. True enough.
But when has great natural wealth, bc
it gold or diamonds,.silver or oii, lain
unused for any length of time for
want of transportation facilities?
These can be supplied and .will be
supplied in the norlh country.
Oil is at present being transported
hundreds of miles by pipe line from
points of production to refineries. The
situation in the north presents no
difficulties that have not been overcome elsewhere.
The oil being there in quantity, thc
world demand will bring it to market,

ing out of one corner of the mouth
or by twisting the face in a displeasing manner?     This facc distortion is
not  necessarily  confined  to  singers;,
we all do it to   some   extent.     Thc j
reason, is nearly always to be found j
in the mouth.     Yesterday I broke a
tooth and  ever since I  havc drawn
niy lip down to try to hide the spot.
Our natural inclination is to try  lo
hide any infirmity, particularly when
it is new.     If the-cause of this effort
is not removed, the cover-up act will
become a habit that will remain long
aftcr the original reason, for its usc
will have been forgotten.
If a tooth becomes tender or the
surrounding gum becomes inflamed,
the bolus of food that is to be chewed
will unconsciously bc shifted to a
spot that is more nearly normal. This
results in the rapid progress of tartar
formation upon thc teeth in thc whole
unused area. Soft foods and mucus
will join the tartar so that presently
a vile tasting and smelling mess,
seething with bacteria is permanently
located in the waiting room of thc
main station of the route between
your dinner table and your stomach.
In addition to being contaminated
when this condition is present, thc
food is only partly chewed. When
a habit in chewing is formed that is
not normal, the contour of the face
is always altered and the facial expression is changed. This is because
some of Uie muscles of the face, which
are also muscles of rnastication,/are
not doing their proper share of thc
work, as thcy atrophy, which means,
grow smaller. Some of the face muscles have more than their"- usual
amount of work to do, so they grow
larger. With one side of your face
growing smaller and onc side growing larger it doesn't take much of an
"���architect to figure out the fact that
yOu will have a crooked face if 3rou
don't chew right. You cannot chew
right unless your mouth is healthy.

Germany's Tricks
Inter-Allied   Commission   Will   See
That Terms of Agreement Are
X' Carried Out.:y��., '
The persistent attempts, of the Berlin Government to evade its responsibilities under; the disarmament
clauses of the. Treaty of Versailles
and thc Spa protocol are causing annoyance in official circles here, even
where there might otherwise be a
tendency to make allowances for Germany in other domains. Thus, Berlin- now argues that she needs only
"dismantle and not destroy her condemned fortresses; she bases her objections on the grounds of cost and
harmlessness. But dismantled fortifications are far from useless, as thc
.rapid., conversion during the war of
government works deemed obsolete,
;and consequently emptied of their
field artillery, into first-class supports
or "pivots of the general entrenched
front demonstrated again and again.
That is why General Nollet and the
Inter-Allied Commission and, if
necessary, the Ambassadors' Council
,are expected to answer this ncw German appeal, so. obviously inspired by
General von Sccckt, with a preremp-
tory negative. They arc also going

Synopsis of
Act Amsndmenfs
Never suspect a friend of doing you wrong until the
proof of it is as plain and as clear as the sun at noon on a
cloudless clay, and then, yes even then do not accuse or
censure until you have heard from his own lips his version
of the supposed wrong, If you were ever a friend to him
he is certainly entitled to that much forbearance and consideration. If this rule was practised, many a misunderstanding would be averted, and many a heartache spared.

Teach children to be polite. Teach them there is nothing
but goodness of heart of so much durability as a   pleasing
deportment.    They will lose the idea after a while that it
is smart to be pert and boisterous, and take pride in being
little ladies and gentlemen,    Teach them to say   "How do
you do?" or "Good morning" to   everybody  with  whom
you are acquainted; never to  contradict,   whisper,   hum,
beat a tattoo  with the . fingers on   the furniture or  loll
around in lounging attitudes in company; to  say   "if you
please" and "excuse me, "if it is necessary to pass before
any one, or to leave the table before the rest, and never to
do any of the things for which it is necessary to ask to be
excused unless it  is absolutely  unavoidable; not  to  toss
things instead of handing them; not to listen to anything
not intended for their ears; not to refuse to give the whole
to s visitor when half will not do.    A polite  child  is  the
