In an exhibition game on Tuesday
night the fast stepping Michel Sextette
won* from the locals at the ice palace
before a record crowd of enthusiastic
fans who claimed the game was*'the
best seen here for many years and
many were the expressions of satisfaction at the skating and stickwork of
the "coke oven" boys. Our own boys
also excelled themselves in all departments of the game and had not
Blundell been badly hurt at the end of
the second period by a riflle-like shot
which paid no attentiqn to pads, the
match would in all probability have
been a draw and such a score would
have correctly indicated the play.
The local goalie deserves great credit
for his plucky behaviour and he turned
in a good game despite the injury.
1st Period:
The. teams took the ice at 8:25 and
with Eric Atwood of Grand Forks, as
referee started off at a fast pace^���Morrison scored the first counter for
Greenwood followed by one by Anderson and two by J. Littler for Michel.
Madden was sent in to relieve and
scored shortly after for Greenwood.
Michel put on all speed at this juncture and J. Littler scored one more
ending the period 4-2.
2nd Period:
Both teams again started off fast
and Anderson scored soon after the
faceoff for Michel, Taylor and Puddy
retaliated for Greenwood with one
each while 'shortly after No 4 scored
the 6th for the visitors and the period
ended 6-5.
3rd Period:
Owing to injury to Blundell the third
period was slightly delayed but commenced at the same fast pace which
had been maintained 'throughout J.
Littler scored for the' visitors and
Taylor did likewise for the home team
ending the game 7-6.
As a clean fast skating aggregation
of hockey players we can commend the
Michel team and hope that ere many
moons have waned that they will again
be seen in action at the local rink
where a welcome will always be on
hand.'
The local boys have one more game
to play at the Forks after which they
will put their blades in mothballs and
send their uniforms to the cleaners.
The teams:
, --Michel.���James .Jenkins,. Joe" Sadlish,
James ��� Littler," Thomas Littler,' Harry
Brown, Wilfrid Littler, John Gaskell,
Peter Gaskell, and James Anderson.
, Greenwood.���Ed. Blundell, R; C.
Taylor, Jas. Hallett,- N.- E. Morrison,
Jesse Puddy, O. A. Winter, Leo Madden,
Ed. Johnson, and Wm. Walmsley.
Refreshments were served the two
teams after the game and later a dance
was held in the Greenwood Theatre,
the Michel boys being the guests of
honor.  A very pleasant time was had.
On The Ice
CURLING
The semi-final game was played in
the Cantaloupe (knockout) competition
on Thursday last between Forshaw
and Gregory and was one of the keenest and closest of the season. The-score
was tied 6-6 on the 10th end and
Gregory made one on the 11th end to
win the game. The final game was
decided last 'night, Gregory winning
over Hoy. The Osoyoos curlers will
present cantaloupes to the winners
when the season comes around. The
rinks were: Gregory skip, Smith mate,
Powers second, Summersgill lead; Hoy
skip, Bryan mate, Morrison second,
Purkis lead.
The first game was played in the
Mates Competitition on Wednesday
evening with" Hamilton scoring over
Puddy. The mates change places with
the skips in" this competition.
Geo. S. Walters played his first game
of' curling this season on Tuesday
afternoon when he, met a rink skipped
by J. E. Hoy. After 10 very interesting
ends it resulted in a win for Walters'
side. A member of Mr Hoy's team was
D. D. Munro, City Trustee, who was
initiated into the game.
Four Michel boys, ��� Messrs. James
Anderson, James Littler, William Hall
and James Jenkins, and a curling rink
composed of Mrs G. S. Walters, Mrs.
F. A. Johnson, Mrs. F. L. Peterson and
Miss Lowe played a game on Wednesday afternoon, everyone winning and
received a prize.
Word was received from Grand Forks
today that the rink -composed of
Pincott skip, Willis mate, Muir second
and Vant lead, won "over the rink composed of Freeland skip, Clark mate,
Atwood second and Massie lead, by a
score of 11 to 9. This game was started
in the Greenwood Bonspiel and it was
agreed to finish it in Grand Forks as
there was not sufficient time to play
the 10 ends before train time.

Kettle Valley Golf
The Grand Opening (unofficial) for
the season of the above club took
place on Sunday, Feby 12th. Although
the attendance from Greenwood was
disappointing, the crowd from Rock
Creek did nqt materialize, the large
and enthusiastic contingent from Kettle Valley amply compensated for any
deficiencies in other respects.
The absence of the genial club
steward, who it was understood was
engaged in his other avojcation, was
much regretted.   .
The roads from Kettle Valley were
literally crowded with pedestrians and
cutters, one small cutter arriving at
the course with six zealous players and
with no need of sleigh bells.'
While there is yet some snow on the
course it is firm, and the balls behaved
normally, in fact numerous players
made better scores than in Summer.
In addition to the record made in playing so early in the season, another
unique record was scored i.e. out of
slightly .less than 40 balls in use, not
one was-lost, although all the caddies
were busy coasting.
After a glorious afternoon spent on
the course, the happy players dispersed
for their homes.
- Later. The unfortunate cook's who
had tq. satisfy the appetites of these
players, threaten to go on strike, if
any more Winter golf is indulged in,
as the amount of comestibles consumed
stagger the., imagination.

Eiglit Years Of World Service
With thc conclusion of the Great War and'the assembling of the Peace
Conference, a new chapter was written in the history of this old world when
the League of Nations was formed and the Covenant of the League written.
By that act a new conception, a new ideal of international relationships and
obligations came into being,
On January Sth last, the League of Nations observed its eighth anniversary, and although eight years is but as a fleeting second in the life of the
world, there is interest and value in glancing back over tliat brief period and'
seeking to measure the usefulness of the League and in endeavoring to find
un answer to the question whether it is worth while, and whether there is to
be found in its brief history the seeds of permanence.'���"���
The general opinion of the press of the world is that, while the League
has not accomplished all that-was hoped for it, nor realized the extravagant
hopes of its most enthusiastic supporters, neither have the doleful prophecies of Uie skeptics of 1920 been fulfilled. .
The League has not yet succeeded in making the world safe from the
menacing shadow of future wars, although it has been instrumental In
mediating at least six disputes, any one of which might have developed into
world war. On the other hand,-it has confounded all the dire prophecies
that it would quickly collapse in a welter of quarrels and recriminations. Instead, it "stands stronger today than at any previous period in its short
.history.
From it's inception, the programme of the League has had two main
���objects,���two great principles which, from the first, it has sought to establish,���the extension of international law, and the settlement of international
.-disputes by arbitration. It has done much to secure acceptance by all nations
of these principles. But that is not the sum total of its accomplishments. To
quote Lord Cecil:
"It has improved international intercourse, it has struck some effective
.blows at grave social evils, it has rescued some hundreds of thousands of
men, women and children from captivity or starvation, it has done something to restore the economic situation in Europe, it has succoured states
= .floundering in a financial morass."
The League has yet to achieve its highest "purpose, its greatest task, the
attainment of a position which ought to destroy war. If it has, as yet, failed
"in that, if disarmament is still a dream and war still a dreadful possibility,
. the reason is not far to seek!   The Loiidon Daily Herald, Labor, states thc
position when it says: ��� -
"The character of any association is derived from and determined by
the character of its members. A thousand*Quakers will not make an effective infantry battalion, nor a: thousand   bookmakers   an   effective ' antt-
.. gambling 'society. Tho impossibility of gathering grapes from thistles is not
altered even by dubbing a thistle field a vineyard. And since the League is
a collection of governments, its'character and its work depend inevitably
upon thc nature of those governments/ Its collective will is formed by their
.individual wills. It must in practice be an intsrument of their policies."
, Or, to quote Lord Cecil again:
"The task of the League is to destroy war���a task of enormous difli-
" eulty. It cerl airily cannot be accomplished at a single stroke or in a few
.years. It will need all our energies, all our courage, and all our faith.     The
first step is to get rid of the notion that it is lawful for one nation lo make
���war on another at its own will and "pleasure. That step has been taken so 'ar
'-' -as all members of the League'of Nations are concerned.   It is implied in the
���Covenant,, and has been definitely expressed more than once in resolutions of
the Assembly to the effect that'aggressive' war is an international crime'"
The League" of Nations' membership of forty, or fifty nations includes ait
the great nations of the world with the exception of Russia and the United
States. For eight years the leading statesmen of these nations have been
" assembling around the conference table and exchanging views with thc utmost frankness.      They are learning each.others' viewpoint.   They   nave
���striven-to-find-common-ground^of-agreemeut^and^to^develop^formulas-ac^
ceptable to ail and upon which common action: may be taken. In this man-
' ner many old prejudices and suspicions have been wiped-away,-and a spirit
-of goodwill and a readiness to co-operate engendered.
'    'The League of Nations'is, above all,; a powerful educational influence
leading tho peoples of all races,, colors and creeds to think along lines of
peace rather than of war.     And that, after all, is the main essential,���the
���development of a peace consciousness, a real.desire for peace on the part of
the masses of the people, everywhere.   Only so will war be utterly destroyed.
Empire Marketing Board
Campaign In Old Country- To Create
Demand For Empire Products
Tho Empire Marketing Board is
carrying on a most useful work in
endeavoring to educate the purchasing public of the Old.Land in products of the Empire. One of the striking methods used is a series of illustrated advertisements depibting typical scenes in connection with marketing and transportation of various
products from distant parts of the
Empire.'
' Two striking advertisements recently issued deal with apples from
Canada, and arc calculated to bring
very forcefully to one's attention tlie
excellent qualities of this imported
Canadian fruit. No better method
could be desired for creating a demand for this product of Canadian
orchards, and should materially, assist in stimulating trade within the
Empire.

ARE YOU RUN DOWN?
All That Is Needed Is'a Tonic
To Build Up the Blood ,
There- are many people who have
been semi-invalids so long that they
accept their condition as a life burden. They have endured nervousness,
broken sleep and a generally rundown feeling so long that tliey have
given up hope of again enjoying good
health. In "most of these cases a well
chosen diet, fresh air and a tonic to
build up the blood would do wonders.
And as a blood-building tonic no
other medicine can compare with Dr.
Williams' Pink Pill3. There is scarcely a spot in Canada where you will
not find some formerly ailing person
who has found new health through
the use "of this medicine. The experience of Mrs. Thomas Ahearn, - St.
Malo, Que., bears out - these statements. She says:���"I have''the greatest reason to be thankful for what
���Dr. Williams' Pink Pills have done
for me. I wa3 in a very weak and
run-down condition. . Frequently I
would faint and my legs would swell
badly. . It was almost impossible to
do any housework. It seemed as if
my blood had turned to water. In
this weak ancl despondent condition
I began taking Dr.-Williams* Pink
Pills. A few boxes proved that thcy
were helping me, but I --continued
taking the pills until I had used a
dozen boxes, by which time I found
myself a completely restored woman,
able to do my work without fatigue,
a better appetite and a sense of
cheerfulness, where before I had
becn despondent. For all this, thanks
to the health-giving qualities of Dr.
Williams'. Pink Pills."   - -

Support Canadian Literature
Canadian     Books,     By    > Canadian
Authors, Printed Tn Canada
The Carillon Book Club, of Canada,
have inaugurated a plan to furnish
the reading public of Canada with
books by Canadian authors, printed
by Canadian workmen on paper
made in Canada.. They have received
an option on the output of a Canadian
publishing house, ancl as soon as each
book comes, from the press .they will
be sent postpaid to members of the
book club. The annual subscription
rate is $10 per year, ancl this pays
for six new books, which will be sent
to members as soon as printed and
at intervals of two months. This is
not a money making proposition, the
main object being to provide the people of Canada with good, wholesome-
books by well-known Canadian writers. Mr. ��� C. C. Knight, Exchange
Building, Ottawa, is the president of
the club, and by writing to him, full
particulars of the plan will be''gladly
furnished.
Explanation Of Myopia
Prevalent   Because   Man   Has. Still
Characteristics Of Fish
Some justification for -calling a
nearsighted motorist a ."poor fish,"
was advanced recently at the convention of-the American Academy 'of
Optometry. It was said that nearsightedness, or myopia, is prevalent
because man has not yet completely
lost somc of the characteristics of a
fish. His eyes naturally diverge to tlie
right and left instead of looking
straight-ahead. The inner muscles ot
the eye, in trying* to" correct this and
retain tlie parallelism _of the vision,
subject tlie eye to a strain which produces myopia. ���
Builds Greatest War 'Plane
French  , Machine   Can   Carry   Two
Tons'Of Bombs "SOO-Miles'-
France is developing ..and is now
testing the greatest aerial warship
ever built, armed with eight machine
guns and capable of carrying two
tons of bombs in. a radius of 500
miles, rising with that weight to a
height of 1S.00O feet, out-of range ot
all land- guns. ���
The ship is a mystery plane, built
in absolute secrecy, and it was not
until the tests were started that
French engineers' told of its remarkable strength. ��
Despite its size,'it has a fine-profile which makes it less of a target
in the sky. A double set of wheels
permits landing in fields in which ordinary planes could not land. The
propellers need not be swung by
hand, but start like- an automobile
motor,with"simple foot pressure.
There are many novel features,
such as a balcony for the crew, sending and -receiving wireless, a - map
room and 'a special cabin for tlie'
bomber with controls permitting, him
to drop a single bomb or ari' entire'
load at once. It can be transformed
into a seaplane within an hour.
Drives Out Many Burglars
Dog   In   Geneva, ~ Switzerland,' Ha9
Made Thieving Unprofitable
Much of the credit'for the fact that
no case of burglary or theft was
brought before him in 1927, has been
publicly ascribed by. Judge Marc
Collio,- Geneva, Switzerland, to the sagacity of a wolfhound named Wigger,
owned bya gendarme named earlier.
The dog made thieving so unprofitable that the number-of malefactors
speedily diminished. He traced and
caused the arrest of more than twen:
ty burglars and thieves in the Canton
of Vaud, and also found many missing
persons. After smelling of the bed of
a hian who had been missing for three
days,- Wigger traced his footsteps to
the edge ''of a lake, 'beneath whose
waters the body was discovered.

Prospectors   Recently    Raced    With
Huskies To Stake Claim
Aeroplanes, _ tractors and horse
teams to"a large extent have replaced
the picturesque "husky" for carrying
supplies into Northern Manitoba's
mineral fields, but they have not yet
killed tlio romance in mining.
Recently a scene was enacted on
Gem Lake, 50 miles north of Great
Falls, said to rival the stories ot
Klondyke in-its palmiest days. It was
a race to stake a silver, claim at the
east end of tlie lake; Several prospectors with teams of huskies competed:- For miles the dogs raced with
only a few yards separating the leaders and the last team.
The two winners, Roy Charles jand
his partner, W. Bisonetle, Winnipeg,
believe they captured a prize well
worth their efforts. They staked two
claims. The losers also staked, claims
in the vicinity.
The race was the result of a strike
near Man River, reported to have been
going to Chicago,��� and is quite as

Tioco Of Tissue From Heart of a
Chick Kept Alive By Scrum
Sixteen years ago".Dr. Alexis Carrel
took a sliver of tissue from tho
heart of an embryo chick-and mounted it on a slide in the laboratory of
the Rockefeller Institute, New York,
and it is still alive. Theoretically, it
will live for ever.        " \
Every, day for sixteen years the
tissue has received a trim and a salt
water bath. The trim is important,
because the tissue is growing all the
timc and doubles in size every forty-
eight Jio'urs. Statisticians figured that
if it'.had been allowed to grow unchecked for sixteen years, doubling itself something, like 70,000 times, it
would now be eight timc.-j as big as
all outdoors.
Only the possibility of microbian
infection seems to stand between the
bit of tissue and eternity, ancl even
if it became infected the diseased portion probably could be cut away without destroying the life of the'tissue.
Dr. Carrel's object-in preserving the
tissue, which is kept alive by a diet
of serum.-is to .demonstrate the feasibility of-storing skin, blood vessels,
bone, cartilage and other constituents
of the body against the time when a
surgeon may need them.

��� Library Work Years Ago
Salaries Were Very Low and Holidays
Almost Unknown
Five cents a year, was the fee for

York Library, a little less than 100
-years ago', Miss Staton, head of-tlie
reference department of the Church
Street Library, told the Toronto Tub-
lie Library Association.
Salaries were not excessive in those
days. New employees worked gratis
for a time, and were taken on probation.-Later they were pul on as temporary help at ��1.00 a day, and finally
\���taken-on-thc-permanentrstaft'"at~?25"
��� a month.
Holidays were few and far between.
Miss Staton believed her first holiday
was June 11, 1S92, when thc library
was closed out of respect to Sir John
A. Macdonald. The nexL was Queen
- Victoria's Jubilee in 3897. Miss Staton
, has been in charge of -the reference

��� PLANNING TRIP TO VENUS
Long Journey -From   Earth   Is
Objective Of Miami" '   "
Scientist
Jules Verne, wherever he may bc
af present writing, is invited to sit
up and take notice^of Professor Robert Condit, of. Miami, scientist and
chemist, who has conceived a scheme
so fantastic that the leagues under
the sea business becomes commonplace.
Prof." Condit,  too,- is choosing the
other extreme for his adventure and
instead of exploring the -floor of'the
sea he is going up. Just how far and
high remains to be seen, but he has
set a lofty goal���the planet Venus.
-   Since nobody has   ever   succeeded
in getting himself completely divorced from the earth, Professor' Condit
is anxious,to be the first to do so. He
has devised a 'machine which resembles in some respects a rocket ana
on its completion the professor will
set out for"Venus, which he expects
to make in approximately one jump.
One unit, of the machine,  known
.as the central explosive chamber, a
complex and forbidding looking piece
of apparatus, is finished. - -   -
t Hundreds  daily 'are  travelling to
the" Condit laboratory to see it. The
public is given to understand that the
chamber is  tlie main spring of the
machine and its   explosive   qualities
.will.,servo to raise thc professor off
the earth perhaps permanently. The
question arises- on how will tlie professor return if he succeeds An conquering the millions of miles, which
separate Vends and the-earth.    This
obviously is worrying everybody - but
the professor.
'"Why 'cross   bridges,",   asked   the
"He that is slow to anger is better

If, then, you wish not to be of an

throw nothing on it which .will Increase it; at first keep quiet, and
count the days on which you havc not

"I have not been vexed today, nor the
day before, nor yet on any succeeding
day during two or three months, but
I took care when some exciting things
happened," be assured that-you are

Police Commissioners Meet
Trail Defeats Greenwood
The Grand Forks correspondent of
the Nelson News says:
"Trail's Intermediate hockey team
had the fight.of its life at Grand
Forks Saturday evening, when it ran
up against the fast traveling team
from Greenwood in the Intermediate
playoffs for the provincial championship. It was only after the most
,strenuous session of hockey that the
team from the smelter metropolis
emerged victorious by a score of 6 to 4,
which went into 10 minutes overtime
before the issue.was decided.
The Grand Porks rink was packed to
the doors, the Greenwood team bringing down some 100 supporters. As far
as the run of play went Greenwood
surprised even their most ardent supporters and came pretty near taking
the spoils in the last period when they
simply outskated and outgeneraled the
Trail team. ';
TRAIL AGGRESSIVE
The Trail team started off in great
shape and their team work had the
Greenwood boys guessing, and for a
while they monopolized the play. De-
Pasquale then took a single handed
dash, outwitting ���-> the opposition and
finished by tallying the opening point
for Trail. The visitors had a decided
edge in this period, but good defensive tactics saved the Boundary again
on several occasions. . Before period
ended A. Demidoff again scored for
Trail.
GREENWOOD EVENS
In the second period Greenwood
played inspired hockey and swept
the fast-traveling Trail representatives
off their feet. Adapting themselves
to the visitors' style of play, the
Greenwood team were continually on
the aggressive and kept hovering
around the Trail goal, but, "Tuffy"
Garland seemed unbeatable. However,
Taylor essayed a* lone dash down the
right wing and shooting from the blue
line registered number one for Green-
wqod. Keeping up their aggressive
tactics the Boundary team brought the
score even through Orville Winters,
who, skating in fast, slapped in a rebound. ."-������-���
With the score even the third stanza
was about the most hectic battle of
hockey seen in Grand Forks for several
years. Both teams played for all that
was in them, end to end'rushes featuring with both goaltenders making
superhuman efforts to keep the puck
out, Blundell especially showing- up
well in this period and some of his
saves, bordered on the sensational
Trail was the first to break the tie
scoring through Matovich after a
clever individual effort. This reverse
did. nqt dishearten the Boundaryites
who swarmed to the attack and keeping up the pressure Winter again
evened the score with a bullet shot
from the wing. The bell ringing found
the Greenwood boys desperately trying
to put over the wipning counter.
ROSS GETS ONE
The overtime period saw Trail taking
the aggressive and before long: Ross
put them in the lead, although the
goal was very, questionable However,
they made no mistake shortly after
when McDonald registered another. In
the last five minutes Greenwood displayed wonderful staying powers and
kept up a continual offensive with the
result that Winter again pierced the
Trail net. Trail then played safety
first and were content to keep their
goal intact with the result that the
game showed up considerably. Just
before time they put the issue beyond
doubt when they scored again through
Demidoff, who shot into the net from
a scrimmage in front of the goal.
Greenwood surely surprised the Trail
team and it--was only after a real battle that they were able to. skate off
with the sweets of victory. It *,was
unquestionably the greatest hockey
battle .that Grand Forks had seen for
a considerable time and hadjthejfans
yelling frbnTthelif6p_df"tlTe"Harto_the
last sound of the gong.
The game was exceptionally clean
and was capably handled by Captain
Atwood." -'���
The teams were:
Trail.���R. Garland, goal; W. De-
Pasqua'le and S. Ross, defence; S.
Matovich, A. Demidoff, P. R. McDonald,
A. Demidoff and Dovey, forwards.

Michel Wins at Grand Forks
The Michel hockey team East Kootenay Intermediate champions, played
an exhibition game with a combined
team of Greenwood and Grand Porks
players in Grand Forks on Monday
evening, the former winning by a score
6 to 3. It was a much faster encounter
than the Trail-Greenwood game on
Saturday and the fans could not under-
standstand why this team did not beat
Trail.
The game was interesting from the
face-off, W. Littler getting the 1st for
the Michel boys. Orville Winters
shortly afterwards 'evened the score.
W. Littler again put his team in
the lead followed by a counter by
Anderson for Michel. Morrison then
got in some fast work and counted for
the home boys second score. The
period ended with Michel leading by a
score of 3 to 2.
J. Littler added two more for Michel
in the second period, while Jesse Puddy
made a nifty shot and tallied making
the score at the end of the second
stanza 5 to 3 for Michel.
Both teams kept up the strenuous
pace in the final period and only one
goal- was scored Brown getting one for
Michel and the game ended with
Michel the victors by 6 to 3.
The teams were composed of the
following players:
Michel.���James Jenkins, Joe Sadlish,
James Littler, Thomas Littler, Harry
Brqwn, Wilfrid Littler, John Gaskell,
Peter Gaskell, James Anderson; Wm.
Hall, manager.
Greenwood - Grand Forks.���Edward
Blundell, R C. Taylor, Eric Atwood, N.
E. Morrison, Jesse Puddy, Orville A.
Winters, James Hallett and R. Brown.
After the game the two teams were
treated to a sumptuous repast by the
Grand Forks hockey club in the Cooper
Tea Room. An impromptu dance was
held afterwards in the Community
Hall.   .-"
Here a Grand Forks version of the
game:
In one of the peppiest of hockey
matches seen in Grand Forks in years,
Michel, East Kootenay Intermediate
hockey champs, beat Grand Porks' best
here tonight by a score of 6-3.
It was a speedy game from the
drop of the puck, and for stick-
handling ��� and real hockey play the
contest surpassed the Greenwood-Trail
game of Saturday night.
Michel, took the lead in the first
period; by collecting three goals to
Grand Forks' two. Michel added two
to the local team's one in the second,
and the final ended 6-3 for the East
Kootenians, The hockey rink was
crowded to the doors and an excellent
sheet of ice made play fast. It was an
exhibition game.
