' Six teams competed, viz, two from
Osoyoos, one from Grand Porks, one
from Beaverdell and two from Greenwood. No. 1 competition was won by

the stancs. Many games were won by
a close score and in several instances
the victor was not declared until the
last stone was thrown. -

game and the good things to eat provided by the ladies were certainly appreciated by all the players. Mrs. Geo
Walters and Mrs. P. L.' Peterson were
always on hand and kept the table well
supplied.- They and their assistants
are. to be congratulated for the very
efficient way in which they catered to
the wants of the curlers.

Fatally injured when a tree he was
felling crashed upon him, on Friday
afternoon, John Anderson of Nelson
died the following morning at the
Westbridge Hotel at Westbridge.
Mr. Anderson and his brother William
were sawing a tree to manufacture it
into ties. The tree broke above the cut
when it came in contact with anothei
standing tree and fell on Mr. Anderson.
Before Mr. Anderson could be released
his brother had to cut the tree and lift
it clear of the injured man, who was
rushed to the hotel a few miles distant,
where he died 14 hours later.
The body was taken to Greenwood
and thence to Nelson on Monday where
interment took place.
Mr. Anderson is survived by his
mother, twin sister Mary, and brothers,
William and Thomas, in Nelson.

How can it?   Well, nobody knows
nowadays, but there is an old belief to
this effect, which is still held by some
country folk.   For Saturday is Candle
mas, and an old verse says:
"If candlemas day be fan* and bright,
Winter will have another flight;
If Candlemas day be'clouds and rain,
Winter is gone and will not come again."
So now you know not to wish for a
fine day on Saturday. You might have
to pay for it in storms later on!

The 'Greenwood Intermediates took
a one goal lead m the first of the
home-and-home games with Grand
Forks last Friday. It was a close
battle and one m which all biands of
hockey were displayed. The play
started out with Grand Forks pressing
but in the first few minutes Jesse
Puddy skated through to sink what
seemed to be a goal. However, it was
a rebound off the post. Play sea-sawed
with Greenwood skating better, but
Grand Porks working together better.
Jesse Puddy was fighting like a demon
but the forward line wasn't functioning. Often the defence was stalling
but when Leo Madden started down he
was the most dangerous man on the ice.
Three times he stick-handled through
and was unlucky to get only one goal,
the deciding one of the game. The
first came m the second period on a hot
one from the stick of Jesse Puddy, the
goalie caught it'on his stick, but could
not hold it. Jesse, the hardest-working
man on the ice was back-checking
every minute. The Grand Forks goal
came^on a pass from the right wing.
The centre who held his position well
during the game flipped it in with no
one to beat but the goalie. JRoyce
between the posts handled everything
that came his way. In the third period
Taylor came to life and showed some
real flashs of hockey. He skated
through more than once and his shots
were on the net, he was unfortunate
in not scoring on one occasion. On the
whole - Grand Porks puck-chasers
showed a better balanced team, but
lacked'the speed of the local_boys.- Dr.
Francis, of Hedley, handled the whistle.
The final game of the series will be
played in Grand Forks on Friday night.
After the game both teams were entertained at the home of: Mr. and Mrs.
Reid who very kindly offered their *ser-
vices for the occasion. Dainty re-
freshments*were served. Thanks is due
to Mrs. Royce .who donated two cakes
and doughnuts.

Jack Strathdee, the very able
winter sports director at the Chateau Frontenac, his friends Mill
be pleased to learn, is' losing
weight. Jack0 runs a summer
cSmp at French River in .the
lishing season- and he took his
present job,for the reason that
he wanted fo rest and draw a
salary at the same time. When
lie has time to reflect, and this
is bcldom, he longs for the casy
job of opeiating a camp and
"handling a crowd of . Indian
i guides. He finds no rest, for
di'i-ing every daylight hour theie
is something doing on the ski-
lull, on the rink, on the slide���
and a, hundred people to provide
-with sports equipment and direction. But he keeps fit ad
they all do. The air is bracing
and invigorating and there is
lot*-* of fun.
In the gioup above one sees
the director assisting Their Excellencies Lord and Lady Willingdon who have just come down
tho slide for the third time. The
other group perhaps explains
why lie finds so much pleasure
in his work and why he lias
taken up skiing -again. There
is also a picture of his rink which
shows how tlu slide in the background diops down steeply from
the citadel.
But take the other picture.
This will show you Jack Stnath-
dee's most recent discovery. Beyond the ��� dogs and the teirace
is a field of free ice. Beyond
that the Isle of Orleans is a
shadowy form. Now to the left
of the Island, just above ihe
lamp standaid, great slabs ahd
chunks of crystal and opaque ice

cast reefs of glistening -pinnacles
to the sky in one glorious chaos
and screechingly, groaningly settled down. Then the mayor
of St. Gregoire and_the mayor of
Ste-PetronLlle set .^out. each
aimed with a small spruce -cutting. They met somewhere in the
centre of the river, solemnly* shook
hands, and the ace bridge *was
declared open. It was after
that, that the sports director
drove over and discovered Ste-
Petronille "with its ski slopes and
toboggan and snowshoe prospects, and also the "Catalogne".

stone fire'place of catalogne about

One of the saddest deaths, in Greenwood, took place last Saturday, Jan-
nuary 26th, when George Bryan, Jr.,
son of Mr. George Bryan of this city,
passed away at his home. George had
been seriously ill for about three weeks
but the last week, although still very ill,
hopes had been given that he would
recover and so the community was
greatly shocked when news of his death
was heard.
George was born here seventeen years
and four months. ago and lived with
his parents for a number of years on
a ranch on the No. 7 road prior to his
mother's death about ten years ago,
when the children moved down to
Greenwood where they attended the
Public and High School. George was
a bright pupil, heading his class most
of the time and working here lately
just until he would be old enough to
continue his education at the coast.
He was a favourite with both old and
young and he took an active part in
-ill snorts, keening goal-for the Tigers
Hockey team just shortly before he was
*-nken so ill. He was also an ardent
fisherman and soent many a pleasant
<-***ening during the season on Boundary
He leaves to mourn his loss his father
and mother, one sister, Eileen of this
city and two brothers, Leslie and Teddy
of Fauquier. To them the sympathy
of the entire community is extended in
their very great loss.
A private funeral was held from the
residence on Monday afternoon, Rev.
Andrew Walker officiating. The casket
was covered with beautiful flowers. .The
pall bearers were: Andrew Anderson,
Leonard Lucente, Jesse Puddy, Fied
Bryan, Jas. Hallett and Eugene McGiUivray.
Interment took place in Greenwood

In the aggregate the amendments proposed to the Game Act by the Provincial Government should be received
witli favor. The administration of the i
Act will probably always remain subject
to criticism as there are so many viewpoints as to the best ways to conserve
game. In the amendments the chief
feature is that hereafter responsibility
for game law enforcement is to be
placed in the hands of a new organization which will be confined to that
duty alone. At present such enforcement is in the hands of the Provincial
Police, and no matter how active that
organization may be it cannot give undivided attention to seeing that the
game laws are observed.
The proposed new administration will
be welcomed by all sportsmen. It never
was expected that provincial policemen would make good game wardens.
Some members of the force, but by no
means all, may be acquainted thoroughly with the purposes for which game
laws are made, and while all of them
no doubt observe the letter of the law,
many of them can hardly be expected
to understand the spirit of its interpretation. It is no disparagement to
the Provincial Police force to say that
during recent years the conservation
of one of the country's great assets has
been neglected to a degree. The fault
of this lay in the Government. The
change to bo effected will be welcomed
by the Provincial Police.
The creation of various game dis-
-tricts, -with-thc-Game-Commissioner-
empowered to organize the province
under these subdivisions, appears as a
logical way of carrying out the new
scheme for conservation. In a province such as British Columbia open
seasons suitable for one district are frequently quite unsuitable for another.
The same applies to bag limits. On
the other hand the establishment of
private game farms, under licence, is a
provision of the new amendments
which is likely to meet with less unanimous approval from sportsmen. In
past years the greatest enemy of game
conservation was the market hunter,
and in the future very careful restrictions will have to be imposed to prevent
game "bootlegging." It is doubtful if
the establishment of game farms will increase the game possibilities of the province for any but the wealthier sportsmen with big private areas to stock
with pheasants. The breeding of blue
grouse and willow grouse has not been
carried on commercially hi a really
successful way, and it is doubtful if it
ever will be. Even the raising of pheasants calls for expert knowledge. In
some countries game farming is a
lucrative undertaking, but chiefly
where expense is not much of an object
to the game farms' customers.
When gun licences were first introduced by the McBride Government they
followed a strong recommendation
from sportsmen and were accompanied
by a promise that the revenue so obtained would be put back into game
conservation. A large amount has been
collected in the course of the years, but
it is not known how much has been
spent as promised. When the amendments to the Game Act are, considered
in the Legislature doubtless there will
be a full explanation of what is proposed and some promise made by the
Government that the body to handle
game conservation will be fully equipped in every way for the purpose.
That is one of the best guarantees
which the sportsmen of the province
can have that the changes in the Game
Act will inure to the benefit of a rich
provincial resource.���Victoria Colonist.

Ice-skating in the movie-dramas isn't
.    done on ice at all.  The Hollywood
climate is too balmy.  Chemists have

'the Science Service's .Daily News Bulletin (Washington).   It goes on to say:
"For example,- the motion-picture director is desirous of staging a supposed

Prof. Arthur R.jMaas, industrial chem-
. ist of the University of California, he

F,erns as they- come from the florist
prepared'for.indoor;culture should be
placed in a strong light, although not
directly in the rays of the sun. They
should be watered,sparingly but;kept
moist at all times. Imagine watering
especially keeping the plant soaked or
permitting to become dry,* is the foundation of most fern troubles.
���-It is especially difficult not to over-
water a fern when it is in a jardinniere
where there is no drainage. For that
"reason it is better to set the plant in a
clay pot' andVconceal the- pot' in a
jardinniere of such size as will accommodate it. ""In this way proper
drainage can be maintained and there
will be less likelihood of trouble from
excess watering.
Ferns flourish under .a treatment of
water- and soap. Put them in a, tub
and wash them occasionally with weak
soapsuds made from a good soap, immediately afterwards rinsing .them off
thoroughly with clear water. Great care,
must be-exercised in" the process of
; washing not to injure the fronds, especially the tips, as" they are very
tender. Once the _tip of a frond.is
the slender tapering end that Is so graceful becomes-blunt'and square and
the-charm is quite gone. "
Fernsk should be repotted every one
to three years.

streams, lakes, and rivers and showing
his skill in artistic decoration" on windows and shrubbery, one would think
that all Canada was asleep. However
this is not so, for now is the time for
recreation for thc young Canadians,
who have looked forward to the coming of winter.
The winter sports for the Canadian
people are many, and may be considered
to be the most popular of games to be
found throughout the whole year.
In the summer the principal sports are
base-ball, golf, tennis, rugby and football, but winter brings along sleighing,
ski-jumjing, tobogganing, dog team
racing,- skating, curling, snowshoeing
and hockey. The last mentioned is
termed as Canada's National Sport,
and in this sport is unsurpassed by any
other nation of the world.
As the winters go by Canada is coming into prominence and being recognized as a natural country for the
many sports which nature has endowed
her. Yearly, thc number of tourists
from the United Slates and even
European countries to Canada, are increasing. To accommodate these visitors our people are continually constructing places which may be called
winter resorts in winter, and summer
resorts-in summer. One of these resorts is to be found in the heart of lhe
Rockies at a place called Banff. Here
the snow remains for the greater part
of the year.' Thc C.P.R. has built a
large luxurious hotel for the visitors
and besides many small houses which
are rented out to the people. This
place in winter becomes the scene of an
"Ice Carnival" which is attended by
people who assemble from long distances. The long street is crowded
with people, differently dressed and
now the town presents a picturesque
scene and lias the significance of a
true "Fairy Land."
In Revelstoke a city in British
Columbia in thc month of February
annually,takes place "The Ski Festival,"
and competitors come from everywhere
to attend this thrilling sport. The
most noted jumpers of Sweden and
other European countries even come
here and many of the world's records
have been broken here.
In Eastern Canada such resorts are
to be found at Quebec and Montreal.
Here takes place the dog team racing
in which various nations ��� take part.
Sports are to be found for both young
and old. The older people' take pleasure in snowshoeing' up slopes. They
also go tobogganing while the younger
generation go sleigh-riding and skating
on open-air or indoor skating rinks.
These places where the sports are held
are beautifully decorated with colorful
electric lights and the people can skate
to the strain of a band.
From Pacific coast to the Atlantic, in
every town and county, hockey enthusiasts are to be found'as well as one
or more sports herein mentioned. This
may give you an idea of how the
Canadians spend their winters, and
why .they are held in such high esteem
in the minds of other nations, who
describe-us as-being--a_cheerful,_strong,
healthy nation, possessing a real true

Potato growers and'consumers alike
will be interested in the following article
on frozen potatoes which appeared-in
the Pacific Coast Packer:
"Last fall J. H..Spangler, then of
Duncan, Okla., wrote me that he had
found frozen potatoes good eating, if
put into the boiling - water while still
"I got a friend of mine, an ice cream
dealer, to freeze two Triumphs for me,
and then last evening when as hard as
glass balls, I dropped them into boiling
water and cooked them done. I ate
them and found them just as good as'
the same potatoes which had not���been
frozen.    -,
"Mr. Spangler evidently has pointed
the way to a little, salvage now and
then from frozen potatoes. Big users,
if able to hold them frozen, could boil
Mine were .not even sweet." .��� .
