Wild Life Of Western Canada
NoL  (oust among  rhe attractions  that Western Canada lias   I'or many
people, whether permanent resident, tourist or sportsman, is the abundance:
and yariety of Us wild life,'and now that .the. hunting season is at haud
it; is opportune io'make-something more than a passing reference to. ihe
value of this'great asset to all of * bur Western Provinces.
Judged from any and all standpoints the wild duck and geese, prairie
chicken, partridge., and other game birds are of immense value to this
country. Thoy constitute n picturesque "feature of Iifo on the prairies and
aro a constant source of-delight to' the lover of nature. What gr.uater pleasure
can be had than to witness the flight of duck iu the early dawn or as the
sun sinks lo rest! A man must be of a very stolid nature indeed "wlio does
not get a thrill' as he watches thorn winging their way across the sky.
To' the hunter our same birds offer tho best, of 'opportunities for Uie
display ol> fhe keenest markmanship, coupled with the best sportsmanlike
qualities. And. finally, Ihey provide a welcome addition to our food supply ���
a delicacy appreciated by all. , '
Later in ihe season comes the opportunity for the big game humor to
match his craft ancl skill with the deer and moose. In a word.&lhe wild life
of the West is a drawing card Cor thousands of people. Withoul these g;uno
birds and animals the West would not be the West which attracts and holds.
But. human nature being what it is, it became necessary for Governments
by legal enactments to protect these friends of. man from man himself. As
a result, lhe open season for shooting has had to be curtailed, and the siae
o'f "bags" greatly restricted in order to save birds and animals I'rom
extermination. And il. is only through the strict observance of these laws,
and a rigid compliance with all regulations,- that a further curtailment ot
privileges now enjoyed can be avoided. Laws have been passed and rogun-
Udns are enforced by Governments, not for the purpose of depriving hunters
aud citizens generally of ihe privilege of shooting," but in their own interesls
that i(. may bc preserved ancl continued to them.
There are still some individuals in this world, who wrongly stylo themselves "sportsmen," who consider it sport and something to Le proud of and
boast about (o shoot, au inordinately large number of birds in a day or a
season. These individuals revel iu having their photographs taken, gun in
hand, and, wiih their "Uiil" displayed around them. The real sportsman, and
the. true cil.iy.en, looks upon all such exhibitions with* regret, ancl a loathing
contempt. 11 is one thing to shoot for food, or for an hour or two of tho real
thrill (hat comics lo the" true hunter, but quite another to engage in a worse
than useless orgy of wanton slaughter. The man wlio will kill and kill for
the mere joy of killing and, in order that he may boast of his "bag" is no
sportsman; on the contrary.* lie is the enemy o'f all sportsmen, ancl, in the
final, analysis, his own enemy. In the language of the old fable, he is d-osi roving the fcoosc Iliac lays the golden eggs. c
The vriier of this article has no desire to preach; hy is noi a killjoy.
But hcvwoiv'd, even on the sordid grounds of self-interest, not to mention
more .lofty motives, urge all the people of Western Canada lo constilulo

Cable Business   Not
-Affected By Wireless
* ':'    ��� "'���'   ���*������:".';*;W.   )" y
Prophecy That Its Days^Were* Numbered Proved Rash     ���
When, twenty-six years 'ago, Marconi first succeeded in sending wireless messages from Newfoundland to
England, ' many people .prophesied
that the days of the submarine cable
were numbered.
. The rashness of 'this prophecy Is
proved by tbe'fact that during the
flrsL four months of this year, the
valuo of tho submarine telegraph and
telephone cables sent out from the
United Kingdom amounted to ��315,-
753. Even this sum, thoughts, far
below the average, owing to the fact
that the trade has not yet recovered
from-the effects of the coal strike.    ,
Although the parly l cables were
slow, the invention of wireless telo-
grapliy and telephony spurred the
cable companies to fresh effort. The
result .was the discovery of a now
alloy nickel and. irb'n which;, treated
by a secret process, proved to have
a conductive power thirty times greater than that of the best soft iron.
The now metal, was named Permalloy, and it's efficiency'is'shown by the
fact that il. is possible Lo send mo'ro
ihan two thousand .letters a minute
through Lhe newest trans-Atlaniic
cable wound, with permalloy. This
compares with a speed of about throe
hundred letters a minute through
other cables.
New developments havo so greatly
cheapened cable' tolls that they can
compete successfully with wireless.

Torriential rains during the weekend made the Kettle river and its tributaries rise. ___ At Kettle Valley on
Monday noon the river was within six
inches of the spring high water mark.

Needless to Fill
Radiator to Top
Worrying over loss of water in the
radiator and cooling system has become part of the process of car ownership
for many motorists. Despite all efforts to keep the system filled and tight
a certain.amount of water is lost daily
regardless of the length of the run.
It should be good news to such motorists that, their trouble is merely the
result of being too eager to keep the
radiator full. Whenever a car owner
fills the radiator to the brim he is
wasting his time. He's overlooking the
overflow pipe into which the top layer
of water spills when the car is jounced
and the water is agitated. If a little
water starts to spill'out the overflow
quite a bit more will follow by reason
of the syphon created. It is not unusual for a quart of water to syphon
out this way.

(Ottawa  Journal),
Golf is a form of work made expensive enough for a rishman to enjoy it
It is physical and mental exertion made
attractive by the fact you have to dress
for it in a $200,000 clubhouse., :
Golf is what letter-carrying,* ditch-
diggin and carpet-beating would be if
those three tasks had to be performed
on the same hot afternoon in short
pants and colored socks by gouty look
ing gentlemen who require a different
implement for every mood.
Golf is the simplest looking game in
the world when you decide to take it
up, and the toughest looking after you
have been at it ten or twelve years.
It is probably the only known game
a man can play as long as a quarter
of a century and then discover that
it was too deep for him in' the first
The game is played on a carefully
selected grass with little white balls
and as many clubs as.the player can
afford. These balls costs from 75
cents to $2,50 and it is possible to supports family of ten people (all adults)
for'five months on the money represented by the balls lost by some golfers in a single afternoon.
A golf, course has 18 holes, 17. of
which are unnecessary and put in to
make the game harder. A"hole" is
a tin cup in the'centre of a "green".
A"green"is a small parcel of grass costing, about $1.98 a blade 'and usually
apple trees and a lot of "unfinished
excavation." \
;, The idea is to get the golf ball from
a given point into each of the 1.8 cups
in the fewest stokes and the greatest
number of words.
The ball must not be thrown, pushed
or carried. It must be propelled entirely by about $200 worth of curious
looking implements epecially designed
to provoke the owner. -,            XX,..
Each implement has a specific purpose and ultimately some golfers get to
know what that purpose is. They are
the exceptions.
After each hole has been completed
the golfer counts his strokes. Then he
subtracts 6 and and says,"Made that in
5. ��� That's one above par. Shall we
play for fifty cents on the next hole,
too, Ed.?"
After the final, or .eighteenth hole,
the golfer'adds up his" score and stops
when he has reached 78. He then has
a swim, a pint of gin, sings "Sweet
Adeline"with six or eight, other liars
and calls it the end of a perfect day.

Has Authority to Inflict
Corporal Punishment
The wisdom of the adage that "He
who 'spares the rod spoils the child,"
was endorsed by, the courts of Saskatchewan fot the first time in the history
of the Province on August'30th. . In a
judgment handed down by Judge
Ouseley in the Moose Jaw District
Court, it was held that a schoolmaster
has the right to inflict corporal punishment on a pupil. Legal authorities
dating back 200 years were the foundation for the judgment, for they held
that when a- parent sent his child to
school he gave the teacher the power
to punish the child if necessary.
Conviction of W. H. Metcalf, principal bf Prince Arthur * School, found
guilty in Police Court of assaulting
Mona Soady, 10-year-old pupil, was
quashed by Judge Ousely, who allowed
costs for the appelant, both in appeal
and. city Police Court trials. In quashing the conviction, Judge Ouseley
held that Mr. Metcalfe had. the authority'to inflict corporal punishment
and in; this particular instance the
punishment inflicted on Mona Soady
was not excessive:
