Smashing their way through the
opposing defense and scattering the
visitors in all directions in their
great offensive, the Greenwood
piickchasers defeatad Grand Forks
in one of those wildly exciting ice
contests^ which was replete with
lively interest, on Friday evening
lasfe. It was a whirlwind game
and one of the hardest fought
matches ever played on local ice, a
game in which heavy checking, was indulged in from start to
finish fand in which the players
mixed freely.

At the bonspiel of the Britisii
Columbia Curling Association
which was held in Nelson last
week, a "booby" prize was put
up. For each game lest ia the
preliminary rounds seven points
were allotted and for each game
lost in the" second round five
points, in the semi-finals three
points. The rink skipped by P.
George, formerly of Greenwood,
carried of the prize with a total
of 60 points.
Greenwood had the edge of the
play all/fche time. Grand ForkB
played afe the top of form, but
Greenwood gave tbem a stiff1 battle
all the way. their close checking
being particularly effective. That
the better team won must be admitted. Grand Folks attempts to
break through Greenwood's defense were without result and goalkeeper Taylor who has been playing a star game, all winter had a
comparatively easy time of it,
while the visitors goal was bombarded-time'after time. The locals
defence was impregnable, Murray
afe point played sure and steady
game, while Carlson at cover had
the fans on their toes with his spectacular end to end rushes. Stanaway was a thorn in the side of
the visitors. His work was exceptionally good and he invaded the
visitors territory on more than one
occasion to their discomfort. Alm-
strom'-at centre was -iri good form
and his shots worried his opponents. Clerf onx right wing did
splendid work and made some sensational body checking. Hallett
on left, a coming player, was a little )ight;for the heavy defence of
Grand Forks, but he nevertheless
caused them no end of worry, while
Art Murray who relieved proved to
be a/"stick handler of no mean
Friday night's game brought the
schedule feo a close with Greenwood and Grand Forks tied. Ib
was agreed to play home and home
games; the teamT getting~the~ mosf
goals to become the proud possessors of the Boundary Cup. The
first game of this series was played
on local ice before a large crowd of
enthusiastic spectators -and again
Grand Forks went down to defeat,
the score being 3 to 1. Again
Greenwood proved to be superior
players, but ife was only through
hard work and determination for
they had to fight their way to victory every moment of the game.
Tho game was clean and fast
throughout and the fans were kept
in a constant thrill of excitement.
Referee Morrison had his eagle
eye on puck and players' all the
time and his decisions were fair to
both sides.
The  first goal   was   scored for

e Misunderstands
however, aware of that fact. In thej
public mind of llic old world, President Wilson was credited with powers
he did not possess, and liis attitude
at Paris did nothing lo remove the
false impression.
Not only the Allies, but Germany,
too, vvas deceived, or al least misunderstood thc position. Germany relied implicitly on Wilson's famous
"fourteen points," believing lhat
should the very worst happen and
thcy ultimately suffered ignominious
defeat, as thcy did, thcy could fall
back on tlic Wilson program as the
basis of peace, and that the "fourteen
points" covered the maximum of the
demands that would*bc made and imposed by thc Allies.
The inevitable result is, of course,
lhat Europe and America still fail to
understand onc another. Thc outcome has. left a bad impression, and
the masses of the people who do not
understand the American constitution
fee! that the United Stales has broken faith with them; that they accepted the League of Nations proposed
by President Wilson when it is generally admitted a satisfactory and
workable peace treaty could have been
achieved in a relatively short timc
without thc inclusion of lhe League
covenant; and lhat now thc United
Statcs haggles over and will possibly
reject the policy for which President
Wilson was  thc sponsor.
If, instead of going to Kuropc himself, President Wilson had sent envoys to negotiate thc Peace Treaty,
Europe would have better understood
the situation, because President Wilson was only a negotiator himself and
possessed no greater power���although
wielding a greater influence.���than any
other United Stales delegate. His
vcry presence at thc Peace Conference, and, lo put it mildly, his failure lo enlighten Europe as to his actual powers and standing, is today the
cause of much misunderstanding and
sonic Bitterness which might, and
ought, to havc been avoided.

The following amusing episode was
related by Sir William Sutherland at
the dinner of the London Gaelic Society:
In Paris he met an Englishman who
had just come from Budapest, which
was then in the possession of Bela
Kun aud the Bolsheviki.
The Britisher was anxious to quit
Budapest, but was unable to obtain a
passport, so hc went to thc station,
sat in a train, and trusted to luck.
The Bolsheviki came along and questioned him, but lie made signs that
hc could not  understand.  Thereupon
origin of this unique almanack is very
simple.   Like a good many other pco- somc higher officials took up  the in-

Among the more astute and well
informed diplomatists, statesmen and
publicists of Great Britain and
Franco, and to an increasing extent
in ihc United Slates and certain European countries, the impression is
growing that thc glorious opportunity presented by the Peace Conference for the clearing up of international misunderstandings was noi taken full advantage of, and that to a
great extent that opportunity was
wasted, with the result that many old
misunderstandings remain and comparatively trifling difficulties arc still
exaggerated and rankle.
The underlaying cause of failure to
grasp the full opportunity presented
is set down to a .misunderstanding on
the part of European statesmen and
people of the constitutional powers of
the President of the United Stales,
and iir. Wilson is blameworthy in
that hc apparently madc littic or no
attempt to -acquaint his confreres in
the Peace Conference with thc limitations of his office. Acquainted as
European peoples arc with prevailing
systems of government in Great Britain, France, Italy, Belgium and other
countries where it is necessary that
thc Government of thc day command
thc support of a majority of the elected representatives of the people, they
arc. puzzled by the American system
where the Executive may continue lo
administer the affairs of government

Many Arc Operating Under the Com-

������'"' Concerns
Thai thc development of co-opeia-
livc activity among Saskatchewan
fanners should bc community breeding of faim animals, is the opinion of
W. Thomson, director of the co-operative organization branch of thc provincial department of agriculture.
"Co-operative breeding of farm
animals is a- very important dcvclop-
I menl iu the improvement of livestock
iu recent ycars. Invariably good results havc been obtained in the three
registered co-operative community
breeding associations iu the province.
Besides many are operating under thc
.Companies Act or as partnership concerns which have the same aim.
"Co-operation in livestock breeding
should bc of thc \ery greatest value!
to Saskatchewan at this stage, when
such a good beginning has been made
in establishing good herds of purebred slock. The spirit of co-operation is also greatly helped by a movement where thc prospeiity of one
breeder iu a locality assists in promoting the welfare of all his neighbor*."

Large Shipments of Cattle Made from
Southern Alberta.
During 130 working days from
August 1 lo December 31, 5,200 carloads containing 133,000 head of livestock wcrc moved by the Canadian
Pacific Railway in Southern Alberta,
Over 1,100 head per day were handled
or al the rate of forty cars, or onc
trainload a day. During much of the
timc, the movement was much
heavier, reaching an average of one
hundred cats daily for days at a
Of the 133,000 head moved, most of
which were cattle, it is estimated lhat
half went to Chicago. Probably
twenty-live per cent, went to llic Cal-
gaiy, Winnipeg or other \nuls. Thc
remaining twenty-five per cent, were
shipments from onc point to another
for feeding purposes. Approxiniafcly
100,000 head passed out of lhe hands
of Southern Alberta farmers altogether, finding their way to the block
iii thc majority of oases.

market during the fall accounts in a
measure for the prospctity which is

Government to Make a Survey of tho
Lethbridge Northern Project
Far greater sums than wcrc expected at first will bc involved in thc
irrigation schemes which the Alberta
legislature will be asked to approve
shortly. George Anderson, the California irrigation expert, who was
commissioned by thc provincial government to make a survey of thc
Lethbridge northern project, has completed his report, and it is in the
hands of the cabinet ministers.^
Thc report shows that while thc
Lethbridge northern scheme will
mean an expenditure of about $5,000,-
000, there is an available water supply
sufficient to involve ultimately an out-'
lay of $20,000,000 on irrigation in Southern Alberta. It is the conviction ol-
thc government that thc work will

earnestly, "these girls arc all right.

a good man whether he speaks of God
as 'Allah' or 'Buddha,' or any other
w.ord which means the same thing in
his language?"
"As I grow older," answered Mr.
Falconer, "the distinction - becomes
less and less. The Osmanli Turks arc
perhaps thc most religious people in
the world, for thc simple reason that
thcy respect the religion of-others. I
have visited Constantinople, and I
was profoundly impressed at-seeing,
how in thc mosque at Eyub Sultan the
mosaics depicting thc life of Christ
had been not only preserved but carefully protected. I can think of no
other creed which would havc been
so liberal to the pictorial commemoration of an alien faith. As for our
late cslemed,friend, Hamid Pasha, he
was simply a devout man unshackled
by the tenets of any orthodox religion. -H'm���h'm���so two of these
ladies  arc  Mohammedans  and     two

Ruggles cxpicsscd his appreciation
of this '.kindness in a'manner which'
bordered on the emotional.
Ruth and her aunt, Miss Downing,
arrived at Mr. Falconer's handsome
apartment in advance of Miss Challand and her niece. Ruth had no intention of missing the beginning of
the second act of the most interesting drama that had ever fallen Avithin
her youthful experience, and one in
whicli, it must bc admitted, her heart
shared equally with her head. Shc
wanted to see the meeting between
Ruggles and the girl who had treated
him so���-in Ruth's opinion��� snobbishly and ungratefully.

never for a moment fell any different
about you and your father and Dick.
If Dick had been here", I would have
gone to him and asked for a* square
deal. But I didn't want to bather
your father, and I certainly wasn't
going to cry-baby to you, especially
when you'd been so good to mc and
given nic'your picture."
"What's become of the picture?"
Ruth asked, looking at him through
narrowed lashes.
Ruggles smiled, "Did >you notice
just now when you opened thc door
how Mustapha looked away the second he saw your facc?" he asked.
"Yes.   Why did he do that?"
"Because he recognized you from

into 'Ruggles's facc���"I guess maybe
he's about right. He'd think it 'was
sort of sacrilegious to look at you.
I've felt that way. sometimes about
the picture. One night in the-emergency hospital, when I was saying
my prayers before I turned in, a Turkish orderly came to give me a message from Pembroke. -He didn't disturb mc, bccausc-lhe Turks hatfe got

Ruth laised her hand io her bosom.
Young as she was, a good many men
had tried to make love to her, but to
undergo an apotheosis was a distinctly new experience.
"Do you still- say your, prayers before going to bed?" shc aslccd.
-__i'Most always," Rugglcs answered.
"My mother and father were both
pretty religious, and thcy got mc into
the habit. That picture of yours has
heiped-mc < a lot,-Miss Downing,"
Rugglcs went on. "It's sort of given
mc something lo live up to and try
to be worthy of. When I was laid
up in Hamid Pasha's house I kept it
in the drawer of the table at the' head
of my bed, and when I was feeling
pretty bad I used to lake it out and
look al il, and it used to brace me up
and keep mc from losing my nerve
���especially after Pembroke had got
through dressing my ankle. I used
to think (hat I'd rather cU* and have
it over with than ha\c any more bone
gouged out���"
"Oh���don't!" cried Ruth, looking nt
liim with brimming eyes. She wondered if Ruggles had any realization
that he was telling her pf such a
love as no other man had ever f- nd
words to express to her.
"I beg your pardon," baid, Rugglcs.
"I didn't mean lo upset you���but I
just wanted you to know ^\hat you
and yuiir picture had done for inc.
I'll call up the'office now and tell
thcm tu send Mustapha."
In his cordial note of invitation lo
luncheon, Mr. Falconer had suggested
-lhat Rugglcs conic to his apartment
an hour early, in order that they
might havc an opportunity to talk
before thc arrival of the other guests.
Rugglcs was glad to comply with this
suggestion, and was warmly greeted
by thc kindly old gentleman.
"My dear young friend,'* said he,
-beaming at Ruggles over thc tops of
his shcll-rimmcd 3>incc-nez, "I'm delighted "to sec you. Pembroke gave
mc the most of your news, but I am
mosl anxious to hear the laic from
your own' lip?. Do sit down. You
arc still lame, I sec."
"Oh, I guess I'll limp for the rest

Pasha would havc placed no restrictions on lhcir religious freedom of
thought. But as you point out, lhcir
temporal ^development depends at this
moment 'principally upon the social
lines along which it may be directed."
. Ruggles wondered if there had ever
been so wise a man as Mr. Falconer,
and he blessed the fate which had
brought thcm together.
"That's the way it strikes mc," he
answered. "Just as Pembroke says,
they've got lo meet the right sort of
people. Why shouldn't they, ��� ' anyhow? They're Hamid Pasha's adopted daughters and hc was a man lhal
stood mighty high. We've "arranged
that they're going to take his full
name���Ben Aii Hamid."
.  "Quite so," said Mr. Falconer.
"Thc trouble is," said Rugglcs, "to
get them started right.".
"I do not think there should bc
much difficulty in lhat respect," Mr.
Falconer replied. "With such credentials as you have at your disposal,
it should bc an easy matter to see
the young ladies properly introduced.
Of course, my dear- fellow, you may
count entirely upon iny own poor efforts���" He raised liis hand. "Don't
thank mc. It is an insignificant service which I'ani only too happy to
render to *the niJniory of a friend
whom I greatly esteemed. What I
was about-to say is that our difficulties"���Ruggles noted the plural pos-
sesive and his heart went out to Mr.
Falconer ��� "are morc apt to lie in
limiting thc circle than in-enlarging
it. With such uncommon beauty as
you describe and a dot of a million
francs apiece, they are apt to be a
lure for all sorts of fortune hunters."
"I guess that Miss Elliot and I can
manage to head off that crowd," said i
Rugglcs cheerfully. "Besides, they've
got���to- gci-my consent-to-n��arfy~if
they want to gel their dots."
__Nfr. Falconer nodded, "Quite so,"
said he. "Now, in regard lo" this
question of a chaperon. Have you
had anybody iu mind?"
Ruggles flushed. "1 thought of Miss
Challand, sir," he answered, "if you
think she'd care to do it."
Mr. Falconer struck his hands together. "Thc very person!" said he.
"But, then, how about her niece?" And
he looked at Rugglcs so keenly that
the.boy flushed, for lie read the double question:
���'Oh, that needn't interfere,1' said
Ruggles, with a faint flush. "Miss
Wcstbrookc could live with us, too.
It would bc a good thing for tlie girls
lo have Mich a nice companion. You
sec, Miss Elliot is a lady and all that,
but, aftcr all, she's a paid governess."
"I'm afraid, though," said Mr. Falconer, "that Miss Wcstbrookc might
object to becoming your constant
guest���especially aftcr lhc rathet
shabby way iu which shc treated you.
Shc has since told mc that shc regretted her behavior in that respect."
Ruggles's face brightened. "I'm
mighty glad to hear lhat," said hc.
"After all, it was my own fault. I
ought to have -told Iicr just what my
job was. Believe nic, Mr. Falconer,"
���hc leaned forward and looked earnestly into the kindly, paternal face;���
"I've learned a lot about people and
things in the last twelve months.
When I was selling shocs for a living
I thought that I -was just as good as
anybody, but I've learned different
since. I know that I'm nowhere near
iti the same class with vou and Lord
Pembroke and Mhs Challand and
Darthca and���and the Dov.nings and
that my having a lot of money and a
palace and a Turkish dccoiatiou dmi't
make the least bit of difference. T'.lood
is blood, I guess, in people just as
much as in dogs and horses and cattle, or anything else."
"My dear young friend," said Mr.
Falconer, "wc are all equal in God's

miniature air'crafts arc having tryouts
all over England.
One of these midgets called;, thc
"Britisii crow," weighs 220 pounds
and flics with almost the speed of a
full-grown airplane. Another baby
called, "tlic pocket airplane," is so
small that a man 'can span ils wings.
It is 16 feet Jong, and thc inventor,
Austin Whippet, says it will achieve
a speed of 96 miles ah-hour. A feature of this baby is that it can be
folded for transport and carried inside a' trunk.
Thc French arc also dabbling in
Lilliputian aircraft. . Passepartout
claims to have built the smallest airplane in the world. It is guaranteed
to carry a single passenger anywhere
and bring him back. Still another infant monoplane is onc turned out by a
French firm at Garsay with a span
of a trifle more lhan thirlccn,rfcct,
thus being two feet smaller lhan thc
"British Crow.''
Fitted with a ten horse-power A.

a speed of sixty-two- miles an hour,

that thc lime was coming when brick

In order to grasp the significance of
this lesson, we should recall, the condition which prevailed in the church
as suggested in verse 31. Three characteristics are outstanding:
1. Freedom From Persecution.
.Saul,1 the ringleader of the persecuting forces, had just recently been
converted, thereby disorganizing their
forces, allowing the church to enjoy a
breathing spell. - This period of rest
did'not result in its growing lazy, indifferent, worldly, and forgetful ot
God, but in growth in grace and in
the .knowledge of the Lord Jesus.
2. Spiritual Growth and Development.
Thc real meaning of the word "edified" is "buildcd up." This docs not
mean merely that the members were
being instructed and comforted, but
that strenuous efforts on the part of
the individual members, as -well as
the body as a whole, wcrc being madc
for the advancement of the divine
life. The word, "edify" contains the
metaphor of somc grand building or
structure. As suggested by another,
this metaphor involves (1) a foundation. This is Jesus Christ���ho other
dare be laid (I. Cor. 3:12-16). (2) A
continuous progress. This means that
a Christian's activities are purposeful
and that thc work hc undertakes
moves forward with the proper progress. (3) Persistent effort. This
means that the present 'day's7:, work
begins the foundation upon which tomorrow's work must bc built. Thus
day by day his life is being raised
higher and higher, as each separate
round of material: is being laid by
strenuous efforts. (4) A completion.
Finally the -work is done, the building is', completed, the top, stone is
brought forth and placed.
3. Outward Growth.
Building up within the church
causes the whole work to be admired
and respected by those without, inducing them to conic and. identify
themselves with the cause. There can
be no forward movement without unless there bc a corresponding movement within.
Our lesson today is the record ot
two stupendous miracles. Thcy arc
the greatest signs wrought since the
day of Christ. Thc dreadful malady
of palsy is vanquished, and 'a corpse
is" re-chanle_d by the departed soul.

Irrigation Feasible
Over Large Area
California Expert Presents Favorable
Report to Alberta Legislature.
George G. Anderson, of Los Angeles, California, the irrigation expert
commissioned by the government of
the province of Alberta to investigate
the possibility of the large irrigation
scheme in Southern Alberta, known'
as the Lethbridge .''.Northern project,
is about to prepare an official report
of his investigations for submission to
the Alberta legislature.
Mr.-Anderson considers thc proposed irrigation scheme in the northern
Lethbridge district entirely feasible.
Mr. Anderson states that he is satisfied that adequate water . supply is
available. The survey work already
done,'by the Dominion .government
has been carried out with great carefulness- and accuracy, but the estimate
of-costs that had been currently accepted, largely ou local and unofficial
authority, he believes to bc considerably under the amount that would
actually be required.- A matter of
$4,000,000 is probably involved in the
scheme, according to the Hon. A. J.
McLean, minister of public works.
The irrigation work in the nprthern
Lethbridge district is thc first, of
several irrigation schemes on foot. It
is not lhc largest, however, and it is
expected that it will be followed by
the southern Lethbridge ' scheme,
which will involve a larger acreage
and a correspondingly larger outlay.

I. The Healing of Eneas (vv. 32-35).
This man's needy condition appealed to Peter, just as men today should
appeal to us in thcir semi-dead stale.
Like his Master, Fclcr could not refuse thc needed help. In this he did
not direct attention to himself, bul
confidently appealed to the power in
thc namc of Christ: "Jesus Christ

his bed for eight long ycars immediately arose and made his bed. When
thc Lord heals it is done instantly.
Peter wisely kepi this miracle from

To  bc  Tried for Fire Ranging  and
Commercial Transportation in
Major Arthur Lincoln, representative of thc Dominion Air Board, has
visited Saskatchewan and conferred
with various bodies respecting thc
I possibilities of lhc development of
j the usc of aircraft in this province for
commercial and departmental purposes. As a result of his visit, he is
recommending to the Dominion Air
Board thc establishment of air service stations in North Saskatchewan;
the establishment of an air service
training school in Regina; the establishment of air patrols io cover the
forest areas of_thc_norllieni_part_pf_
ihc province; thc encouraging of the
usc of aircraft for commercial purposes in bringing from the far north
small but valuable shipments of furs;
making airplanes available for police
services in the north countiy as well
as on lhc International Boundary line
between Saskatchewan and thc United States. He also recommends that
aircraft be used for photographing
the tmsurveyed areas of the" north
country to assist in locating land
suitable for ranching and mixed farming, and the usc of airplanes on certain mail routes in districts where thc
present service is poor owing to lack
of adequate railway facilities.
ifajor Lincoln discussed , the proposed air service with Inspector Tait,
of the provincial police, who arc considering thc usc of hydro-airplanes for
the far north patrols. The plane desired is one which will alight on water or snow aud which is capable of
flying in weather 40 below zero.

Man Power Was Greatly Depleted By
War "
Ilelsingfors, Finland, as a stranger
in Ihat.tovyn reports his impressions,
is a city of women doing the work
that used to bc done by men. Hc is
astonished by the number of women
in practically every kind of occupation. On the trains tlie porters in the
sleeping cars are women; in thc fields
and factories -women are busy* at
heavy manual labor; in thc banks
there are apparently about ten times
as many women employed as men,
and in one of lhe biggest financial institutions in the city positions of great
responsibility are held by women.
Compared with other countries, where
the spectacle of women in what formerly were exclusively 'masculine employments became common during
the war, Finland in general and Hcl-
singfors in particular, carry the proportion of -women much further, for
the man-power of Finland was so
greatly depleted lhat a large proportion of thc remaining male population
is now needed for militaiy service. In
the Finnish Foreign Office, for example, women wcrc holding positions
which, says thc correspondent, "would
be entirely beyond the aspirations ot
their sisters in thc Stale Department
at Washington or lhc Britisii "Foreign
Office." No other country, it seems
safe lo'saj-, shows so wide and general an adaptation of women to the
carrying on of every kind of work*
and "although "the"change is~ said td~
have come about rapidly, thc women
seem remarkably at ease in their new
lie.���But I asked yon, dcaicst, to

We don't seem to be able to control the price of sugar in America.
But out in Australia they do.
The price of sugar in Australia
has never altered throughout the
whole course of the war, and it 13
being f-old today at the same price
it was in July, 1914.
This is nofe due to any benevolence on the part of the sugar trust
in Australia, nor on the part of thp
retail merchants.
The federal government in Australia is controlled by the labor
party. So is the Queensland state
government. By an agreement between these two labor governments
the sugar supply was effectively
controlled, and the price fixed at
7 cents per pound, at which it has
remained during the whole course
of the war and up to date.

team took the offensive and started
a terrific bombardment on the visitors goal. Murra;; u a har raising rushed^ slapped the puck
through making the score Greenwood 3 Grand Forks 0. Tbe game
continued with unabated fury until half a minute before time the
visitors scored their only tally.
Space will not permit a detailed
account of the game bufe by actual
count Greenwood had eighteen
shots ou the visitors goal while
Grand Forks only had five opportunities of scoring.
Greenwood played like demonB,
while Grand Forks brought a carload of horseshoes with them to
put around their net guardiai;.
Chefcr-up! There is generally
something in the cellar.
Carlson certainly had a bag of
tricks with him. With his dashes
aud shot3 Carl found many admirers among the fair sex.
Taylor iu the net has aud eagle
eye. He plays cricket, tennis,
soccer and many other games with
the rubber disc, but he cannot be
bribed or bullied to let anything
slip by.
Grand Forks, although heavier,
could not rough house it for every-
time they did start ife, it was "look
out below."
Our centre Almstrom, has in his
possession one of the sharpest shots
around here.
While tho visitors went home
losers they took with them a few
souvenirs of oar fair city. Among
fehem is a general respect for
Greenwood's hockey players.
G. Clerf sure has some speed
when he gets going.
���Hallett stood the pacawell and at
times skated rings around the visitors.
The solo dashes of Carlson ancl
Murray were sensational.
'Greenwood showed that- fehey
can deliver , the goods. They
mushed up ai lot of visitors rushes
with timely poke checks.

Great praise is due to the ladies
who furnished hot coffee, and cake
