Two Good Hockey Games
The biggest crowd  that   has
been at the-local rink since prewar days witnessed the first game
on Saturday night in the playoffs for the Coy  cup emblematic
of the B. C. amateur intermediate
hockey championship when Trail
and Greenwood clashed sticks in
a whirlwind game.    The   score
of six to nil  in favor of Trail is
no   indication   of-., the   play   as
Greenwood had every bit as much
of the game" as did the visitors.
Their goal-keeper is ��� a wonder
and   also   the   fact   that   Trail
played   three   extra   substitutes
while   Greenwood   played   none
had a great deal to do with the
score.    Trail's Mystery Man* did
effective work as did Patton, Ross
and Denidoff on the forward line
while the   defense   worked well
The second game on Monday
night was a'different story and
the Trail team had all they could
do to keep down the lead.    For a
long time it looked as though the
local boys were going to turn the
scales, but again  the marvellous
g^al-keeping   of    Marshall   and
the changing of players did the
trick   for  Trail. / In   the   first
period Trail got one goal after
8 minutes of whirlwind hockey
and in tbe second Greenwood got ^
a goal in five minutes scored by
Morrison on a beautiful pass from
Crowley.    Trail  was unable   to
score in this period.    In the third
period    Greenwood    received   a
tremendous    ovation    from   the   ,
enthusiastic spectators   and   our
boys   stepped on the ice determined to run up a score.   Royce
in goal  proved  himself  a   goal
keeper of no mean repute, while
Taylor and Clerf on defense were
playing the game of their lives.
The wonderful staying powers, of
Hallett,  Morrison   and  Crowley
on the forward line brought forth
admiration  of  even   the   Trail
players.    Their meteoric rushes,
and brimmed to the overflow with
a    determination,     they    raced
'through'  the'' Trail" team"" with
dazzling    speed.   '   For- thrills,
speed,  combination and exciting V
moments it was the choice game
of any ever seen here.   Green- .'.;
wood made a wonderful offensive
drive, but.couldn't score.   Twelve ..
shots were lashed against Trail's 7
goal. keeper  and   for   fully ten V
minutes at a stretch the locals
hemmed   the   visitors -in.     Our
boys   had   ''got on"- to Trail's ,
style of playing.    Suddenly TrailV
put on two substitutes and the
change of players  disorganized -
the locals for a  time and Trail
scored the only goal made in.this;
period.. -Not downhearted Green-

Thus in spite of all the immigration
from foreign countries during thc past
forty years the percentage of British
stock remains dominant. Tho percentage of French stock has slightly
declined, while the people of foreign

Big Game Hunter Going Into Wilds of
In quest of rare species of wild oxen-,
believed to be historic ancestors of
the docile cow of today, Harold A.
White, big game hunter of New York,
has sailed for ihe wilds of French
"Wild oxen roamed Europe and
Asia tons of thousands of years ago,
before the dawn of civilization,"
said White. "The herds gradually
-disappeared, until tho original stocks
are now hidden in the thickets of
Indo-China. There are two species
���ihore, ihe ���sohtding' and the 'banting,'
both bovini.-s, but with different, horn
"Wiih native helpers I will attempt
to capture pairs of male and female
and calves of each species for tho oasl-
vrn zoos, for at present none of these
animals are in captivity. The wild
oxen, according to the best information I can obtain, are now found in
the State of l.oas, as yet little explored and a paradise for other big game.
The land is inhabited by a half-savage
people known as Mois, from whom
historians think arose the Moros of
tho .Philippine. Islands.
"A white tiggr, leopards, rhinos and
other large animals also roam the jungles of Indo-China."

Wonderful Coronation Rug
Represents Portraits, of 160 of Persia's
Great Kings
A truly unique piece of Oriental
work is Persia's wonderful "Coronation" Rug. It embraces a pictorial
record of Persia's rulers from times
antedating the Christian Era t.o the
time of tho World War. During the
last year it reposed iu a storeroom in.
New York. Work upon the rug was
started iu .1906 and went on until it
was completed. With remarkable
-fidelity to features and absolute verity
to costume of the time of each individual depicted, this rug represents the*
portrait of 'lGO of Persia's great kings,
or shahs, and is otherwise highl'y
decorated. There are 1,000 knots to
each square inch, op about 25,800,000
knots tied to the linen warp threads
to produce the wool nap that forms
the velvety body and creates the por-
trail and decorative features.
May Again Use Windpower
Making Bid For Former Prestige
Through German  Invention
Wind power has always been rather
effective in both national and international politics, bul Industrially it
suffered a decline with the advent of
���! steam. Now, with fuel and labor
costs at high levels, it is making a
surprising bid for its old prestage.
'J'he experience of Dr. Flettner with
the combination of wind and auxiliary
engine power have been apparently so
successful ihat the only serious defect
suggested by the critics of the ship
which he built in Germany is that the
huge masts may prove far from seaworthy.
Now comes another German inventor���a retired major, who has been a
student of aerodynamics for more than
twenty'years���with a fourteen horsepower aero-dynamo, which, mounted
on a thirty-foot concrete mast, , can
.supply enough electricity to meet the
needs of a good-sized farm. The de-
viceNitself is described .as a hood-like
structure from which protrude four
wings mounted on ball-bearings. Ingenious wind brakes have been devised which -check-the. speed in a high
wind; .        :
The "aero-dynamo" has already
shown sufficient merit-to win for it a
series of exhaustive tests by the British ministry of agriculture, whicli are
now in progress. , It would be strange,
Indeed, if, after more than 100 years,
the wind,' which furnished most of the
mechanical motive power prior to the
nineteenth century, should gain a new
effectiveness in the twentieth.

Dr. Williams'
Pink Pills
They Give New Vitality and more.
Some diseases give immunity from another attack,
but. rheumalism and lumbago (which is really muscular
rheumatism) work- just the other way. . Every attack
invites another.
There is scarcely any disease which physicians find
more difficult to treat successfully than rheumatism. Long
study, however, has shown that the seat of the disease is
in tlie blood. By maintaining tho quality of the blood, you
are doing Ihe best- possible thing to prevent and comba!
That is why Dr. Williams' Pink Pills has proved-.successful in thousands of cases of rheumatism and lumbago.
-These pills enrich the blood and enable it to throw off the
poisons of the disease. And so long as the blood is kept
pure and rich, there need bo no fear of a return of the
tioublo."-   ' *
Mrs. Annie-Wright, Woolchester, vMta., says:���"I was
a sufferer from rheumatism for six years and most of that

but never got more than temporary relief. The trouble
seemed to affect my whole system.' Finally I was advised
lo try Dr. Williams' Pink Pills and through these I found
complete relief. 1 can strongly recomriiend Dr. Williams'
Pink Pills to anyone suffering from this trouble,"

Ottawa.���In the debate on the.address in reply to the speech from the

the delay to senate reform.7 He ad-
witted; that the (>very nature of the
constitution prevented the House of

Even In the Houso of Commons it
might be diflicult to get unanimous
action because "so many look upon
the senate.as a haven of refuge from
the uncertainties of party public life."
Perhaps the inter-provincial conference was lho Dest way of dealing with
the matter, even if it implied another

was the-only .fair method; A total

for all Canadians to face and help
