��� Greenwood enthusiasts were treated
to two exciting games of Basketball on
IlPday evening, in the local hall, when
teams'came over "from Grand "Forks
and the played the locals. The first
encounter was. between the ladies
teams. In the first,. period Grand
Forks had the edge of the play and
scored 6 points, and in-the second
the locals played a much better game
with the result of no score. In the
third Grand Forks scored 3 points and
Greenwood 6. The final period ended'
.with the visitors the victors by a score
of 15 to 9. Messrs. Grisdale and Morrison refereed. . -
The ' Greenwood men's team won
their contest by a score of 20 to 15. It
was a very lively and interesting
match. The Forks team were greatly
weakened as they were only able to
play- three-of-their-regular-line=up- a?
the remainder got stalled by car
trouble in\the snow at Eholt and when
they reached town, in a sleigh, the
game was over. Gordon McMynn and
J. L. Bush, jr. refereed the game.
It is a great credit to the Forks
teams to make the trip under such
severe weather conditions.
A number of the players and fans had
to remain in town over night as the
battery in J. Grisdale's car became
frozen here.

Canada s .Next Objective
Tho Urlo ro this arUclo was tlio subject of "a constructive address by
Urig.-Goneral C. II. Mitchell; president of tho Toronlo Board of Trade, before
' tho second annual convention of tlio Canadian Chamber of .Commerce hold
recently al Vancouver. Some portion of that, address can, wo feel, be passed
on wllh advantage to the readers of this vapor. General Mitchell said, in part:
The Diamond Jubilee of Confederation sees Canada entering upon a
period of Its greatest expansion.. It sees Canada United in an effort to improve
its position as a nation within itsolf, and in an ainbtlon to make a placo lor
itself among tho nations of tho world. It already has au assured placo among
those nations forming the great British Empire. It has consolidated its
position alter the war by quiet, persevering effort; and has steadied down
to thc solid, things which can. build up a country. It is now ready for and is
indeed progressing toward the next objective.       .
Canada lias huge fertile agricultural regions. It has wealths of forest,
mineral and water power resources. r>Its geographical*and its topographical
features form an asset rather than a hindrance to its development. It has
busy ports on the two great oceans of thoWoiid, and it has a waterway to the
heart of tho country.   It occupies half of North America, is in the centre, of
the great British Empire.   It is midway between thc East and the-West and
i. .-*."������������
on tho way between Europe and Asia via America. It has great transcontinental railways and fleets'of inland shipping. Aiul along with this favorable
position and its unsurpassed natural material resources, it has human
resources of contented, industrious, law-abiding people of solid character and
high ideals. Our natural wealth lies in our potential assets and in The
development and use of these resources. We have made our way magnificently
lu the past, sixty years, but ours Is a country of the future, and we in Canada
arc tho trustees of these great assets for those who are to come after us.
With all these resources and at this particular time, what then is our
next objective? We are bound to progress along some road and in some
direction and'at some rate. The road must be toward increased prosperity,
and the .manner and tlio rate of travel are for us, ourselves, to determine. The
answer K-os somewhere among our natural resources. The objective for our
effort in Canada's next periocu of expansion lies on the high ground before Us,
which we must attack with a united front to secure initiative and gain
superiority in the markets of this coutiuent, of the Empire and of the world.
To develop theae resources, to supply tho needs of the different parts of
our own country, of the continent, and of the world, we must:��� -������ ^
J.-   Know what resourceS'We have in stock.
2. Ascertain what of our resouroes are the'best seller: (a)''to ourselves���
provincially: (b) to the Empire���the Mother. Country and overseas Dominions; (c) to'the other tuitions of the world.
o. Determine with wh2t resources we are first to enter into competition,
aiul with what next to follow.     ,, :��� *.
4. Luild up entirely new industries;""and. trade from those resources" iu
wliich we are.predominant or which are peculiar to Canada. v
��� 5.   Create a demand for our products: (a) provincially;  (b) nationally;
and (e) internationally
C>. Conduct extensive.publicity in all possible markets for those products
in uhich wo. can readily compete.
To further develop the assets of these great Canadian natural resources
is the first duty of every citizen of every community aud of every province.
The problems involved in such further development" are many and varied.
New problems arise and old ones recur in new forms.     Changed conditions
^bring different problems looked at from now angles.     .-yy.
General .Mitchell proceeded to enumerate some twenty* problems-awaiting
��� - . _  ��� o
se'entilic and economic solution, upon the commercial success of which, he
contended., will depend much of tho future and future 'value of our natural
resources..Included, in this list is improvement of-our wheat culture" to secure
earlier ripening varieties; effective measures'to prevent rust in wheal; cheap
and effective transportation, ol'.ourbasic products by water as well as by rail;
lk*} economic preparation of low grade fuels, such as lignite, for commercial
use; economic long distance electric power transmission; elimination of alkali
structures from attack; development of the pottery and ceramic industry from
our vast deposits of clay; the utilization of the waste straw of our agricultural areas for fuel or other purposes, o
These are some of the thiugs which we .must set ourselves to solve, as a
nation of energetic, alert peoplo. We must unite our Human Resources to
develop our Natural Kosources.. W
It is our national duty at this time to look forward Avith cheerfulness and
confidence and to attack these and. our other problems with all pur energy and
skill, with a, pride in Canada and the Empire, and with firm faith in its future.

The Value Of Dehorning
Horns Add To the Cost Of Production
and Discount the Selling Value
Experience has proved the great advantage; from every standpoint, of dehorning commercial cattle. Horns are
always a handicap to such cattle.
They add to thc cost of production and
discount the selling Value of the animals. Of course the ideal method to
follp'w~"is to prevent the growth of
horns- in the calf, When steers aro
purchased for feeding it is better-to
get ones already (Ichorued, otherwise
they shonid;: bo dehorned as soon as
possible. In a pamphlet* entitled "Dehorn Your Commercial Cattle," which
may be obtained from the Publications
Branch, Department of Agriculture,
Ottawa, the process' of dehorning is
fully; described. The operation, in the
cas'e of. grown cattle, i
extent, painful but its-'advantages are
go great that- it should not bo dispensed with. Where.the-cattle are fed
loose, feeding-them in mixed, lots of
horned and.hornless animals should
���always be avoided, otherwise they will
finish very unevenly. Tho hornless
cattlo, after painful experience, become timid and "refuse to come up fo
the feeding racks or mangers until the
bulk.of the feed is gone. Tiwy become
undernourished, .while the horned
ones, eating too much, develop digestive troubles. Besides this, live stock
shippers find that dehorned &tock arc
more, easily loaded on the cars, show
less, shrinkage aiid damage in tnuitsir,
and are more economical of space.
Cattle'..-salesmen*'���make'' quicker sales
are dehorned.
cording to iho police, visited tlie cathedrals of Khelms and Troyos and
| helped himself to what ho needed, in
; keeping up a thriving business.  Un-
��� loi'Liinately for him, the guardians of
! the cathedrals did not appreciate his
worlc  iu the  cause of esthetics and
v.anted their treasures back.      They
noticed  the  losses and  turned in  a
complaint to the authorities.
The police inaugurated a acarch,
during the course of which Ihey paid
calls to Pichon's shop, whero they
found a large quantity of genuine, but
stolen, art furniture, They did not
find him or his partner, however, nnd
are now eagerly hunting them.'   -
No estimate has beeu obtained of
the number of the stolen articles already sold; but, as it is the case with
most Paris dealers in antiques, .some
of the Daren's customers were Americans and possibly many of tho articles havo been unwittingly taken
aeioss thc Atlantic.
Motoring Through Snowdrifts
Press Out the Ciutch As You Strike
the Drift
From now until the end of winter,
snow.is likely to occur at any time���at
least, in most sections. A week-end
trip, begun iu warm weather, may ftn-
ic-1i in a drifting snowstorm.
Old drivers know how to handle a
drift that has formed in the roadway
and causes the wheels to spin around
and around. New motorists may have
had no chance to learn their_ lesson,
and aro thus likely to attempt to force
to a certain thoir way through the drift without
pressing out their clutch.
Thu clutch will soon burn out completely if this method is practiced.
The only way lo force your car
through the small ctan tali zing drift
(unless you \vi__h to get out and kick
ttho snow away) is to press out the
clutch as you stiike the drift. If you
do not *gct through, back-out in your
I jacks for ten yards or so, and again
charge the drift���pressing out your
clutch at the last moment. A few
charges of this kind will put you on
lho home side of the"average small
drift, with nothing to worry you except tho slight delay.
Western Bred Cattle Big Winners
Cattle Bred At Glencarnock Stock
Farms, Brandon, Capture Prizes
At Chicago lnternation.il
Canada, and western Canada in particular, has every reason to fell proud
of the excellent showing made at the
recent Chicago International Exposition. The numerous awards coming
to western Canada should draw the
attention of outsiders as well as our
own peoplo to the fact thal'our agricultural and livestock growers can
more than hold their own in competition with any part of the American
continent. In proof of the fact that
we are producing as good livestock in
western Canada as in any part of
America, may bo mentioned the honors carried off by the Glencarnock
Stock Farms of Brandon, Man. James
D. McGregor, the proprietor, who is a
breeder,Of Aberdeen Angus cattlo, has
made what is believed to be a record
for all times at the Chicago show. It
is very doubtful if at any previous International, animals bred by ono .individual, have carried oft,so many lion-
All tho classes of cattle were
strong and exceptionally well
represented this-, yfear. All the best
animals of Canada and the United
Stales were gathered there, and- an
animal had to be outstanding to receive recognition. Awards given to
Glencarnock bred cattle were as follows: Grand champion bull On Ilevolu-
tion, 7th;* grand champion female
Glencarnock Jessie, 9th; senior champion female, Glencarnock Black Lassie, Iirst prize; two year old heifer,
Etlella of Glencarnock, first prize;
junior yearling heifer by E ventilation,
out of Barbara of Glencarnock, second
prize; carcass steer, Briancllff Favorite, sired by Glencarnock Blackmr.ro,
fourth prize. Truly a remarkable record tor an individual breeder.

Canadian Specialist Located In Phi la-J Reason
delphia Is Recipient Of  Funds
To Carry On Work    ,
Dr. ElHce McDonald, a well-known
Canadian specialist in'mediciiie legated in Philadelphia,   has   accepted   a
grain of""?50,000 from tlie Duponts of
Wilmington' towards  tho prosecution
of cancer research.
Dr. McDonald, who was born at
Port Elllcc, Sask., is a graduate of
McGill University, * Montreal, and for
years has; been especially interested
in the study of ������chemistry.
He is said to havo discovered certain specific facts in regard to tho
scourge. These facts relate tb changes
in tho blood and in the cells of the
body. lie lias found that the blood* or
cancer patients is more alkaline and
contains loss lime than normal blood.
The most dangerous tumors contain
tho most potash.
Tins graduate school of medicino of
lie University of Pennsylvania is the
depository -of the fund, and the research will be conducted in tho hospitals and laboratories of that institution.
- At present the mnrtality from cancer -is steadily increasing. On this
continent one death in every seven
is traced to this disease. In tho United Slates and Canada 150,000 victims
of cancer die every year.
Mr. McDonald's family is well-
known, among his brothers . being

Disposal      Of     Queen     Alexandra's
Property    Is    Hard   Task
Recently there was a hurried and
important gathering of tho royal
family at Sandringham to discuss
Queen Alexandra's will and the disposition of her property.
Tliat there have been difueuLiles in
distriiiuling (he enormously valuable
collodion of gold and silver-treasures,
furniture, tapestries and objects of art
is well known. This has been talked
about in every club in the' \ve.".t end
for months.
��� One of the-reasons for tho delay in
the Prince of Wales going into residence at Marlborough House is tho
diiliculty over the disposal of the property. . " .,
King .Edward left Queen Alexandra'
all his personal properly at Buckingham Palace and tho use of all his possessions in tho way of furniture, pic-
lures, plate, etc., at Sandringham for
her life, these possessions to revert to
King George on her death.
When Queen Alexandra made Marl-'
borough House, her London homo she
liad tiansferred there all Xing Edward's personal possessions that were
at.Buckingham Palace. How valuable
these possessions are may be judged
from fhe fact lhat the silver ancl gold
treasure in the way of massive gold
cups, tea services, candlesticks, pilgrim bottles (silver and gold), some
three feet in height, shields, etc., that
King Edward left, were valued by
court gold and silversmiths at ��2,-
000,000 sterling.
_-All the treasure was placed in the
plate room at Marlborough Uousp. It
was apparently Queen Alexandra's intention to leave thc bulk of hor property to Prince Olaf, heir to-the crown
of Norway, and her favorite grandson.
But whatever - her intcntiou was,
what she apparently did was this:
From limo to timc she scribbled on

no amount of human endeavor could
modify it. The other aspect of growth
is the controllable factor, that can be

Mine Production Up But
Prices Below Last Year
Increased mineral production in
British Columbia in the year 1927���a
production exceeding any previous year
in the history of the province in point
of actual tonnage mined���is shown in
the summary of mining operations just
compiled by the provincial department
of mines and issued under authority oi
Hon. William Sloan, minister of mines
Due, however to lower metal prices
the gross value of the mineral production is estimated for the full year ai
approximately $62,142,340, as compared
with $67,188,842 in 1926, the previous
record year. This drop in gross value
is, therefore, not due to lessened production, but to the decline in prices*
experienced during the present year
Actual production in the aggregate has
increased, as is shown by the fact that
the 1927 estimated output, if valued at
1926 metal and mineral prices, would
bc worth about $70,000,000.
The summary, compiled by Mr. Johr
D. Galloway, provincial mineralogist,
estimates that the tonnage of metalliferous ores that will have been mined
and treated. during the present, year
will amount to about 5,000,000 tons as
compared with 4,775,073 tons in 1926
The effect of lowered metal prices will
be to somewhat decrease profits and
dividends, but the value of the industry _
to the province is in the distribution oi'
money in wages, supplies, transportation services, etc., and in this.there has
been' no diminution during 1927. By
treating larger tonnages, and thereby
lowering costs, some of; the mine managements have been; able, in part, tc
offset the decreasing of profits due to
lower metal prices, xy
The report shows the-healthy state
of the industry, in British Columbia ir.
recent years, examplified by the steady
increase in output of minerals, regardless of fluctuations in metal prices
or other untoward features. During
the' present year a few silver-leac
properties have curtailed or suspended
operations owing to low metal prices
but the lessened production from this
cause has been more than offset 'by
increases from others.
_^_ These ^gtnesJMhv Sloan joints out
show that quantity increases were
made in silver, lead, zinc and coal, and
decreases in gold and copper. Owing
���to lowered metal prices' a decreased
production value is recorded for silver
lead and zinc, notwithstanding increased quantity outputs of these
metals. The estimated coal production
shows an increase, of nearly 140,000
- tons, which is satisfactory considering
the extreme competition of American
fuel oil which this year has been selling at a louver price than.ever before
The increase in coal production is general in all the coal districts of the
Mr. Sloan" also" points out a slight
decrease is shown in the estimated
value of structural materials produced
but final revised figures may alter this
The increase in value of miscellaneous
minerals is accounted for by the output of some 35,000 tons of pyrite by
the Britannia Mining and Smelting
Company. -
An encouraging feature is pointed to
by the minister of mines in the.fact
that at the present time prices of the
metals have commenced to advance
slightly, and he believes that 1928 will
open with a promise of somewhat better average metal price than prevailed
during the last half of 1927. Meta!
production throughout the world has
been slightly curtailed during the closing months of 1927, with the result
that metal stocks are comparatively
low, and are prices are dependent on
supply and demand "any . lessening oi
production soon causes an advance in
prices.  ������   .'.''/.7"''':''"W"
Mr. Sloan points but that prospecting has not been: particularly active
during the-year, biit some discoveries
have been reported which, on opening'
up, may prove of value. Most of the
old-time type of prospectors have in
recent years been engaged in "prospecting" claims they have located
rather than in looking for new mineral
deposits,' and there is no great influx
of younger men into\ the ranks ol
prospectors,... The present active mining campaign by the larger mining
companies to acquire mineral properties and the rapid rate' at which many
claims long located and lying dormant1
are being taken up, should, soon cause
a revival in. prospecting. British Columbia, for some, years, has been well
supplied with promising, prospects, and
when . the stock becomes depleted
through the present..- demand of new
supply will undoubtedly be forthcoming.       : ._..
It is probably that owing to lowered
metal prices profits of the mining industry will be somewhat less for 1927
than in the previous year, 1926, which
constituted a record. Dividends, which
are the final indications of profits, are
expected to total between $8,000,000
and $9,000,000, as compared . with
$9,747,270 in 1926.
From a careful review of the salient
figures, the minister of mines believes,
it is evident that the mineral industry
of British Columbia is in a most satisfactory condition and that every indication points to a continuation of
Che present prosperity.
The report contains comprehensive
summaries by each of the six resident
mining engineers on the development
work done on their respective districts
during the year, and also a report of
activities in coal mining for the year
prepared by Mr. James Dickson, chief
mines inspector.

Coloured Snow Storms.
There are records of coloured snowstorms dating back as far as the sixth
century. According to Humbolt, a
great traveller, a shower* of red hail
once occurred in Palermo. In 1808,
red snow fell to a depth of over five
feet in Carniola, Germany. The storm
of coloured snow was followed by one
of- the regulation colour, and the effect
produced by the separate layers of
red and white, which were perfectly
distinct, was very peculiar. A portion
of the scarlet snow was melted in a
vessel and the water evaporated, when
a fine, rosecolourd. earthy sediment
was found at the bottom. In Tuscany,
on March, 14th 1813, there fell hail of
an oronge colour. Snow of a brick-
red hue fell in Italy in 1816, and in
the Tyrol in 1847.
, A London correspondent gives a
very simple explanation of the origin
of the game of Bridge and if he is right
he: disposes of all fantastic suggestions
in this regard. He- says that four
Englishmen located abroad formed a
"chummage," which involved meeting
most nights to play a few rubbers of
Whist. One of the -participants .fell
into bad health, and. one of the three
left, a doctor named Bridge, suggested
a variation of. the three-handed Whist,
which amounted to this,' that the dealer should have the option of playing
the hand in the suit he named���he
not knowing the cards his dummy held
until the elder hand had led. From
this, says the correspondent, the game
caught, on, and then followed other
ideas���the naming of the value of each
suit, etc. The name "Bridge" was
given to it in��horior of its inventor.
