On Sunday -they were shown
through the large Sullivan con-
centrator at Kimberley and on
Monday eveuing were the guests
of honor at a party a^t the home
of, Mr. and Mrs. Ward in Cranbrook, at which the boys had a
real jolly time. The return
.journey was made very pleasant
by.the courtesy of J. R. Armet-
���age, steward, and staff of the
dining car on the Cranbrook-
Kootenay Lauding train, On
arrival home the team was "met at.
the station by a number of fans
who had prepared refreshments.
Although the boys were beaten
ihey were not dismayed. Each
member of .the team played his
best. ��� They . were up;.against a
strong aggregation of players
which could be classed as seniors.
In the first encounter in Cranbrook rink the -Kimberley hockey
team defeated Greenwood by 10
to 2. in -a very fast and 'clean
game. Though from the score
apparently one-side the game was
filled with excitement from start
to finish, Kimberley 'evidently,
not going to take-any,chances~by
Jetting up for one moment, even
though to have done so would
have insured bigger gate receipts
for the second game.
The game-started with Greenwood the aggressors .and after 10
minutes, however,- the p'ace.-began-
to tell, and from that on Kimber-
ly seemed to take command of
things. The first period ended 3
to 0, Blumenauef scoring one and
Huffman two for Kimberley. A
few seconds after the start of the
second period Morrison notched
Greenwood's firsts goal, then for
18, minutes the game was scoreless, finally Huffman scored the
fourth and *LUly the fifth and
sixth for Kimberley.   The period
ended-6"��tol.'--The--.third-period
was a- flash from; the. start.
Huffman adding two ' more,
Rochon one and Blum'enaeurthe-
tenth and last goaljor the winners. - Greenwood took the last
count about 10' seconds before
time was up, Morrison scoring
.from Galipeau. J. p. Scott

judge of play.

Referring to the second game,
on  Monday   night,   the   Nelson
_Ne_ws_say_s
"The Greenwood Intermediate
team went down to defeat tonight
in the second game of'their series
with Kimberley, on Cranbrook
ice, by a score of 13 to 4, and
.while they lost the series by a'
total score 'of 23 to 6, they won
the admiration of all the lovers
of clean sport that filled the rink.
As in the first encounter, the
game was one-sided as far as the
scoring' went, but did not lack
interest, the wonderful work of
Peever, in goal, prevented it from
being'closer.
After seven minutes of fast
hockey on sticky ice, Blumeuaeur
scored on a nice, pass from Lilly,
from the face off Kimberley added
another in about, half a minute,
in a Huffman-Gill-Huffman combination. Galipeau, who was
playing a better game than in
the first encounter, got in some
nice work with the hard-working
Morrison. The first period end'
ing 3-0. /
- The second period opened with
Mills again opening the scoring,
Kimberley scored again seven
minutes later on a Mills-to Huff.
man-to,-Blumeuaeur combination.
Morrison - notched Greenwood's
first goal on-a neat shot. Lilly,
after an end--to-end rush,, scored
the sixth goal for Kimberley.
The third period,, which w'a's a
regular scoring bee,. was marked
by some good combination play
by both teams. Taylor of Greenwood was forced to retire with an
injured foot. Musser scored on a
lift ajid slow roller from .center-
ice. In the last 10 minutes the
goalkeepers had a merry time.
Lilly scored from a scrimmage
followed by Morrison for Green-
waod.in half a minute.
Gill scored number nine, and
two minutes after Rochon scored
the tenth. Morrison again scored
in half a minute, while in another
half Huffman tallied on a pass
from    Lilly.    -Hallett     scored'

has imported a real Nannie Goat,

Ifus to-provide milk for his lovely
twin boys. It would be juefc as
well for other residents to procure
a number of these animals and
then they would not have fco'resort
to tha tin cow. This is the second
goat to take up its quarters in
Rock Creek, bub the first was only'
a stuffed one. Ib will recall feo
mind about 13 years ago when
Archie Cameron (who originally)
owned F. Burdick's ranch) was
seriously intending going into
goat raising, but sad to relate he
never got aify further than his
stuffed billy goat, which Tom
Hanson procured for him at
Nelson, to head his herd of nannie
goats. He never forgave Tom for
playing that joke. Mr. Cameron J
left the country shortly afterwards
and entirely disappeared.'

Canada s ' "Inferiority Complex
iy, <lo-
other
A prominent Canadian, atldri._s_.ii_g a meeting In ICisw York recent
���plnred the "Jtiift.riorit.y complex" oi' tlio people <>[' the Dom in ion���in
words, ilie nalloria.l tendency to detract froni lho progress and achievements
.ul Canada, to belittle its growth, and (jiiestlon its posslliillties. Too many
people in Canada are found who constantly compare a given.set of conditions,
o.- services, in this, country wil.li the much more populous and wealthy United
Stales, or the older established'countries of Europe. 11 is no doubt well that
Canada should set a high standard of comparison for their country .-rather
than a low one, but it is hardly fair in place ih rontrasl v country of ten -million people with one of one liuiidri-d and Leu million people.
Canadians aie declared to be "slow but sure and reliable." Wu believe
that the people of thh. Dominion have justly established for themselves lhe
y-epuiaaon of reliability. We may"lack the dash, thc t-nthusias-ins, the boast-
ialni'ss of our neighbors to the south, and no doubt il would be to our advantage if some of their enthusiasm and energy -were injected into our national
make-up. Our bouihem neighbors would probably be better off with a little
Jess of .such nalional characleristics just us Canadians would bo better off
with a little more.
.The year of li)!2(i would appear to be an excellent one in -which to develop
move of Ihe spirit of national sell-confidence in Canada. Following the
���fplondid crop telunis of last Fall, the new year opened with expanding bust
'���ness in almost, every direction, and the making.of plans lor largo and inijiori-
ant advancements in practically every branch of industrial and commercial
-activity during lho year. _ The financial heakh of the Dominion is better than
at any period since before the war, -unemployment Is less, and an optimistic
tone prevails. This should be thc normal state of affairs in this counlry, and
if can be maintained if the people of Canada unitedly determine that it shall
be maintained.   . *
Canada's wheal, crop last year was the second largest in its history and
iooro than IfiO.OOO.UOO bushels greater than in 11)21; the oats crop was greatei
W more than 100.000,000 bushels: barley by 25,000,000 bushels. Tlio pons of
Montreal and Yancouver established new high records for tlie export of grain,
Euiter production in the three prairie provinces, which was below 0,000,000
���ju.i_.nd-:, tin ecu >cars ago, exceeded 50,000,000 pounds l.ast year, Foreign
trade is expanding rapidly, and the favorablc'b.ilance ol exports over imports
now reaches lo almost ��300,000,000.
In "lho .face ot such oflicial figures, why should any Canadian feel called
upon to apologi/.o for his country, or to doubt ils future? Thero has been
talk of hard times in Canada, and-unquestionably some recent 3 ears havo been
trying and dlfUcull, bul such conditions have existed in most countries. Not
long ago lhat student of world affairs. Sir Clilford SiLton, slated with absolute
'conviction that man lor man no counlry in the world was better oil' Ihan Canada, nnd in no counlry did there exist belter opportunities, lor ilie man or.
woman willing and eager to work.
The year is yet young^ but aheady in different set-lions of tlie country
contracts for more new building have been let than is usually/the case by
mid-summer, and announcement of new and large undertakings is now the
,! order of thc
-..���iiuiouncoil th
Columbia Douglas fir for railway ties, an order which exceeds in -quanliiy lho
whole of British Columbia's export to the United Kingdom iwo years ago
Admiralty has decided to use Douglas fir for" fhe docks and bulkheads of future
battleships, and the British Board of Trade will use tho samo material for iis
motor boals and lifeboats,    ln two years British Columbia's export of timber
, tins risen from 16,000,000 feet to (56,000,000 Jeet in 1!)2R;
These facts ore cited, not in a spirit of boastl'ulncss. but as concrete evidence, as .substantial reasons, why, Canadians should altogether abandon thai
' "inferiority complex" for whicli they are criticized and which does act to retard the development of the Dominion and to creale ;t lack of confidence, and
.a self-depredation, which is inimical lo the welfare of Canada. Let 3926
.see'this weakness in our nalional make-up buried foiever.

Explanations and  Comments
/The Clever Question ami Its Purpose, -verses 35-17.���Tho Pharisees
were now resolved to compass the
death of Jesus. They had no power
to order Him put lo death, and so they
discussed among themselves ihe method by which they .could accomplish
their object. They decided to mako
an attempt to ensnare Jllm'Jn His talk,
hoping He would say something whicli
they could icport'to Pilate as treason
and--- thus secure - i'rom the Roman
Governor His death sentence. And,
indeed, two'_, days later they falsely
said to Pilate,- "We found this man
perverting oui- nation, and forbidding
to. glvev.tribute..to Caesar,".Lk. 23.2.
Craftily "keeping themselves in tho
background, they sent their disciples
together villi the Ilerodians, to question Ilim. Tho Ilerodians were the
court party a small class who resented the Roman rule, but favored the
kingship of the' house of'Herod and'
meant to be on good terms with .the
government at any cost.    ""~ -    -
This alliance of Pharisees and
Ilerodians, wlio hated each other,
shows how supremely great was their
common hatred' of Jesus. Cherish
hatred -and It will In time absorb all
��� other feelings, and will expend itself,
not upon the object of your hatred,
bun in tho ruin of,your soul. '

Expedition Heard of Tribft Said to be
Almost Inhuman
��� An expedition from Denver, Colorado, which has just returned to Cape
Town from the littlo known interior
of the Kolahari Desert, brings vivid
accounts ol life among the peoples of
tlie most primitive races in the world
where there exist the largest herds of
big game ever seen.
Members of the expedition heard of
a lost, unknown tribe of bushmeu'who
had been isolated- hundreds of years.
Their counlry is absolutely impregnable from the west,-owing'to ilie
rocky coast of the' South. Atlantic,
while a desert 100 miles "wide bars tlie
eastern ap'proach.
The tribe never has been -seen by
white men and invariably flee at the
approach of other bushmeii.
��� They were discovered to be stunted, almost inhuman, devouring ants,
eggs, flying ants', mice, lizards, snakes
and scorpions.   -
The women usually dig tlie earth for
food, while the men follow lions and
try to steal their kill, or illch carrion
from tlie vultures.
All kinds of big game were discovered, proving the Kacko veldt evenj
richer thau East Africa.     One-hundred and fifty elephants were counted

Great Britain Is Good Friend
Has Shown   Particular Generosity
Settlement of Italian W^r'Debt  -
As _ a creditor, Britain.is far-more
generous    thau   the    United ^States.
Alter she had almost exhausted her
resources   in   financing her- own tremendous    war - expenditures and advancing lingo loans to her allies, Britain-was forced to borrow from  tlie
United-Slak-a, which liad beeu piling
up wealth for'nioro than two years by
selling war materials io the belligerents at exorbitant prices.     Britain did
not borrow-I'i-oiu the United Slates for
her own needs.    She borrowed in ortl-
er to lend to her European allies what
she borrowed.       Now she is called
upon to pay her American debt with
interest, and- she is doing II, although,
in doing it she ls really paying the
debts  of her  allies.     Naturally, she
has    hoped    to   get back Troiii them
at least a part of what Ihey owe her,
and    the   settlement whicli Winston
Churchill has jusl^mado with the Kalian Government shows that it Is only
,a part thai she will get.
The settlement which the U. S. Government recently made with-llaly for
the lepayinent of the debt directly
owed by that country was hailed as
a remarkable example of American
generbsify'to a debtor nation. But'the
.settlement which" Britain has ���'made
with Italy is lar moro genoious. Italy's
debt to the United States is less than"
three-fouiths ol her debt .to Britain.
The Italian Gov ernment, has undertaken to pay to the United State's, in
liquidation of the-ilebt, a sum equivalent to about ?25,000.000 a year lor G2
���years. If Britain had exacted-, trom
Italt* the, same terms that the Washington;. Government did,'Italy would
pay into the British treasury for (J_2
years about $3l,000,000-annuallj-.\'. ih-^
stead, she. will ,pay only  $20,000,000.'

against a background- of snow. Suddenly a shot uiigs out and the thin
black   line   breaks into a seiies of
energized units.-   It is the start of
Reyelstoke's latest innovation 111 the
.'long list of thrilling sport spectacles
��� which hundreds of visitors enjoyed recently   during   the   city's   twelfth
jannual carnival.   This latest winter

downward, downward towaid the
distant goal within the town. Dropping swiftly down the fhst^open expanse of snow the figures disappeared
into the wooded depths of the first
i.jvme only lo emeige seconds later
iu'ie and there, heltei-skelter, through
tlio trees and snow.
There vet s spills a-plenty as down
the mountain side plunged these
mad ski-shod figures, facing unpie-

���\vz*j. But shieis spill only to pick
themselves up again, taking no count
of bruises and" scratches' until the
wild race is over.
Gaining momentum in their downward course, the skiers veered^sharply
from trees and stumps, Reaping
through the v*yooded patches.'gliding
gracefully across the frozen benches
of the hills, ignoiing the kindly incline
of the mountain road which they
crossed and ic-croSsed in their direct
descent. Figine after figure used its
repeated levels as a take-off to carry
them forward and downward in their
mad rush,through the frosty air.

the city street, down through the

In exactly five minutes this'' intrepid world champion ski-jumper
had dropped more than 2,000 feet
