Before a record crowd last Saturday
night the green and white rubber
runners won the first of the 2 game
series against the red and white representatives from the orchard city of
Grand Forks by a score of 2 to 0.    ���
It was more or less anybody's game
and many of the rail birds predicted a
no-score affair as neither side appeared
able to penetrate the stonewall defence
of the two custodians. Blundel) was
especially on his mettle and allowed
not one solitary counter to pass his
boundary line, while Manson did his
stuff in big league style and had it not
been for the snappy work of Morrison
and Puddy at the beginning of the
second period, when these two flashes
made one each in less time that it
takes to "tell the world" he would
also have emerged with a clean sheet.
First Period:
Owing to heavy ice it-was impossible
to keep the rubber flat and the boys
had great difficulty in passing resulting
in overskating. The pace was fast
despite this and the play from one end
to the other ending with no score. ���
Second Period:
Both teams started with a .' rush,
Morrison securing the faceoff which he
converted in 1 minute's play���immediately the second faceoff occurred
Puddy took a pass from Morrison and
converted in 30 seconds. The period
ended with both teams working hard
to score. :    ���
Third Period:
Determination on the faces of both
teams was noticeable and play was
fast and furious during the 20 minutes
but the same strong defence coupled
with inability to control the rubber
prevented any score the game ending
2 - 0 in favour of the local team..
Fred Bariee of Grand Forks . gave
general satisfaction as referee in the
absence of Dr. Francis who was unable
to officiate on account of a bad cold.

Canada To The Fore
Canada's amazing progress in thc last few years is challenging thc
-attention of tne world.   That progress is based not only on the great variety,
��� extent and richness of this country's natural resources, but is founded in the
renewed faith of Canadians in tlicir Dominion and in the confidence thoy
.have in themselves, a faith and confidence born largely of the really tre-
. mendous achievements of Canada during the years of the Great War. In tliat
titanic struggle the people of Canada showed wonderful energy, displayed
.���great initiative, unsurpassed organizing ability, and hitherto undreamed of
���powers and strength. Thrown to a large extent upon its own resources, finan-
��� cial and otherwise, the Dominion courageously faced all problems and did so
with marked success.
Few countries, if any, weathered the stormy days and difficult conditions
���of the after-tlie-war and reconstruction years as successfully as did this
Dominion. Canadian:-) became conscious for the first time of their national
��� strength; the people discovered their-national soul. Their former doubts and
timidities, their self-depreciation, and what has commonly been termed tlieir
inferiority complex, disappeared, and has been replaced by courage, confidence and superb faith.    .
in former years  it is true, Canadians had successfully grappled with
.large .and difficult domestic problems,'but, in these more recent years, the
Dominion has boldly taken its place in the world arena. Its position today in
in the Councils of the League of Nations is an outstanding one, its place
in the Commonwealth of British Nations is strong and assured. The score
���or more-nations constituting the Pah-American Union, including the United
��� States and the countries of Central and South America, are anxious that
the Dominion should -join them and give added strength and prestige to the
��� Union, while other nations are encouraging the establishment of direct diplomatic representation with this country.
But even yet it is doubtful if many Canadians fully realize the rapid
growth ancl steadily increasing power of their own country, because, as a
.rule, the average citizen pays little attention to so-called dry statistics in
which-the growth of a country is sec forth.   In a recent speech at Winnipeg,
.Mr, E. W. Beatty, president of the C.P.R.,'succinctly and impressively net
forth a few facts, whicli will bear repeating. He noted, for example, the
Every working doy last year Canadians took from tlieir forests, products valued at 51,500.0^0.'' ���
From mines they took SSSO.OOO daily.
Every working day they increased their capacity i'or manufacturing pulp
��� and paper by 1,000 tons. Canada now manufactures one-third of the world's
requirements of newsprint.
Every working day ihey added 700 horsepower in hydro-electric energy
'to the-power already installed,..and'.at the same time began work that will
��� add J.,000 h.p. every day in the first six months of 1928.
1   Canada's export tiade last year, with less than 10,000,000 people, was
��� equal to the export trade of the United States, when the latter country had a
population of 75,000,0(V.
Commenting on these and other statements in Mr. Beatty's striking sur-
���vey, a Winnipeg paper asks: Vis'it any wonder that in the past two years
the Canadian people have Won putting $200,000 into the savings banks every
���banking day, increasing deposits" in'other'financial iustiutions correspondingly, investing in life insurance.'.at the same relative rate, buying back
.-millions in securities formerly held in Great'Britain and Europe, providing
��� almost unlimited capital for sound industrial enterprises, and have acquired a
.spirit of solid confidence and .self-reliance?"
Nor is it surprising that more people are emigrating i'rom the British
: Isles to Canada than to any other country, many thousands more than to
Speaking at thc opening of the great 5,500,000 bushel terminal elevator
;just completed by the United Grain Growers at Port Arthur, President T. A.
���000,000' bushels of wheat annually, and is today the world's greatest wheat
��� exporting country, production would be further increased until this Dominion would bc producing one billion bushels of wheat annually.
And the thounght for Canadians'to keep ever in their minds, and to
���profit by, is~that Canada is- only just beginning to get into its stride.

53,000 New Colonists Added To Canada's Population In 1927
Through C.N.K.
Approximately 53,000 new colonists
were directly added to Canadian population in 1927 through tlie instrumentality of the Department of Colonization and Development, Canadian
Pacific Railway. Of these roughly 35,-
000 moved directly through channels
created by the Department into agricultural or domestic service, farm
training or farm ownership. Settlers

A Nova Scotia Lady Was In An
Anaemic Condition
Men and women who do not sleep
well and are not refreshed and
strengthened by a night's rest, are
generally suffering from thin, watery
blood. The nerves fail to get the
nourishment they demand and headaches and a worn-out feeling is the
result. Building up the blood is the
one sure step'to .-renewed-health and
strength, and for this -purpose nothing else can equal Dr. Williams' Pink
Pills. From first dose to last they
enrich and purify the blood,; and; in
this way promise better appetite, better rest at night, .-and-..-.renewed
strength. <.
Mrs. Mary E. Uhlman, Williamstown, N.S.', writes:��� -'.I have,received
so much benefit' from Dr. Williams'
Pink Pills, that I would feel myself
ungrateful if I did not let you know.
-1.was in a very poor state of health
and reached the stage where I had to
remain in bed. A doctor was called
in ancl he told me I had no organic
trouble, hut was simply run down
from overwork. I had been left with
a family to support, which'I did by
dressmaking. The doctor said my
blood had almost turned to, water,
and advised a rest cure. I did not
see how it was possible for me to take
a very long vest, so I decided to try
Dr. Williams' Pink Pills. Soon I found
my strength returning and' before
very long I was able to go about my
duties as usual again. This was a few
years ago, and' my health remained
good until about a year ago, when I
broke out with humor of the blood.
Again I consulted the doctor, who said
my blood had become so thin that it
had really poisoned itself. I told him
I had bought several boxes of Dr.
Williams' Pink Pills, and he told me to
go on taking them as he thought they
were just what I needed. I took eight
boxes and again was in good,health.
I can therefore recommend these pills
to all in a weak or run-down condition."

Was Great Shopkeeper
Large Business Built Up In England
By John Sainsbury
John James Sainsbury, founder of
Messrs J. Sainsbury, provision merchants, who has died at his homo- at
Highgate, N., London", Eng., at the age
of 83, is described as one of Britain's
greatest shopkeepers.
He started as a boy in an oil shop
in Drury Lane, and when he married
at the age of 24���59 years ago��� he
opened a cheesemonger's shop in the
same street. He lived to see this tiny
shop develop into a colossal business,
which owns more than 100 shops in
London alone, and many more in the
This business is estimated to be
worth. nearly ��1,500,000 ($7,500,000),
and it is still in"the Sainsbury family,
all the shares being held by Mr. John's
six sons and six grandsons.
From the time when Mr. Sainsbury
began to make his Drury Lane shop a
success he could never be tempted to
buy.'anything other than the best, and
this, combined with the facts that he
tried always to present hits goods in
the most attractive way ancl to have
them sold by the most attractive assistants, accounts for his success.

Sometimes viewing the progress of
our next-door neighbor, Canadians
have felt discouraged. The United
States was moving .ahead s'o-rapidly,

but wc have been building on a firm
foundation and we are now in a posi-
-tion-to-reap --the-benefits;���The- next-
ten or fifteen years should see a development that will bring joy to the

Total deportations by the Canadian
Government from this province llast
year wore 131 persons, a favorable figure in comparison to tho rest of Canada, the Dominion total being .1,556
poisons, accoiding to a report from
the department of immigration.
The chief causes for deportation
were criminality, disease, insanity,
physical and mental defection, public
charges and pei sons accompanying
others ordered deported.
Among those deported from Canada in the year were: 647 English
peocle; 177 Irish: 187 Scotch;, 29
Welsh; CS Chinese; seven Japanese,
394 continental Europeans, and 47
from other countries.
The causes are listed as follows:
Accompanying deported persons, 225;
avoiding port of entry, 55; violation
of Chinese Immigration Act, 13;
criminality, 240; diseased, 1S2; entry

The total immigration to Canada
for the year was 158,834, and the

Indan Wth Picturesque Cognomen Furnished Nucleus Of
Wainwright Herd
Left lo themselves, although they
hunted them far and wide across the
plains, the Indians would never have
exterminated the buffalo. When the
white mcii took a hand they went at it
enthusiastically, hammer and tongs,
so to speak. It is said that they even
shot thc poor animals from the .windows of railway trains. This may be
a tall story, for railways were not numerous in Western Canada in those
days, but, at any rate, fifty years ago,
the buffalo herds had dwindled so rapidly that it began to seem' as if good
citizens of the future would see their
native animal in no more heroic pose
than making his last stand among the
mothballs. But the day came when the
white men realized that it might be a
fine thing to have a few live bison on
Oddly enough, when the Dominion
Government came to gather up a
herd, it had to go to the United States
for it. Odder still, the animals, it
bought from a Montana rancher had
originally come from Canada and
were now only coming back homc.
And the oddest part of the whole
story was that the buffalo was saved
by an Indian who had no Idea that he
was to be the founder of the largest
herd in the world, that' which today
tramps the acres of Wainwright Park,
Canada's vast bison sanctuary on the
Canadian National Railway lines, east
of Edmonton.  -  ���
The Indian who saved the buffalo
for posterity was a chap named Walking Coyote, a Pend d'Oreille, who
came up to Canada on a hunting expedition in 1875 and lived with his
squaw among the Piegans. - When hc
went home in the spring he took with
him four buffalo calves. Ten years later, when his herd had increased to
thirteen and was eating him out or
house and home, h<; sought a buyer.
C. A. Allard, and his partner Michael
Pablo, a shrewd Mexican half-breed
who could neither read nor write but
who managed to amass fortune ot
$250,000 before he died, were in the
market for buffalo and it was they
who bought Walking Coyote's collection. They addedv it ,to a small herd
which had originally come from Manitoba, and ultimately sold the whole
lot���and its numerous offspring���lo
the Canadian Government.
Canada bought the buffalo in 1907.
Rounding lliem up was no easy task
for Pablo, as the animals had been
roaming wild for years, but, with the
aid of the most experienced cowboys
and the fastest horses in Montana, he
managed to get them together after
three seasons of extraordinarily difficult work. At the beginning, the Wainwright herd numbered approximately
700. In sixteen years it had increased
to" 12,000. In fact, so unwieldy did it
become that.the Dominion Govern-
ment found itjaecc35aryJ.o_transfer-

Appreciation of the
Ladies Hospital Auxiliary
The Directors of the Greenwood and
District Hospital tender their sincere
and hearty thanks to the Ladies
Hospital Auxiliary for their generous
support of the Hospital .in supplying
the varied assortment of renewals as
stated below.-
These good ladies have shown untiring energy throughout the year of 1927,
in organising dances, suppers, and entertainments, their economical management enabling them to accumulate
sufficient funds- to purchase these
necessities. The people of the District,
we are sure, will also appreciate their
efforts as without such valuable assistance it would be-difficult for the
Hospital to operate so successfully, and
render such valuable service to the
general public-
A balance sheet of the Ladies Hospital Auxiliary will be found in this issue
of The Ledge.
Following is' a list of the renewals
3 doz. wash cloths, 3 yds. oilcloth,
3 pudding dishes, 1 tea kettle, 1 fry
pan, 1 roasting pan, 2 baby shirts, 12
small towels, 4 flannel baby binders,

night shirts, 6 prs. bath towels, 1 doz.
serviettes, 3 prs. white wool blankets,
3 prs. grey wool blankets, 2 doz. pillow
slips, 4 prs. sheets, 1 doz. table coyers,
6 binders, 3 fomentation wringers, Ms
doz. dessert forks, .1 feeding cup, 3
creams and sugar sets, 2 doz. plates, 6
