Three Greenwood hockey teams
went to Phoenix on Tuesday evening. They were the Ladies, Intermediates and Juniors. This
was tha first appearance of the
Ladies tbis season and after three
periods of very exciting playing
neither team being able  to score.
The Intermediate game was featured with fast, clean and sensational playing. There was no scoring until the last period when both
teams notched 1 goal, making it
necessary to play extra, and in the
10 minntes overtime, Phoenix put
in the winning goal. This was
the first game in the cop series and
with both teams so evenly matched
a lively race is looked for. The
Greenwood Juniors won out by ft
score of 3-2.

John Kyle, of Victoria, B. C,
Director of Technical Education
for B. C, was a Greenwood caller
on Thursday and Friday last.
His visit was for the purpose of
looking into the request for a
night school at the Mother Lode
and to see if it were not possible
to have manual training in
Greenwood. Public School with
one instructor for Greenwood,
Phoenix and Grand Forks On
Friday morning he spoke to the
children of Principal Masterton's
room on "The U��e of Type
Models" in Object Drawing.
While seated at the Plaza the
other day, I overheard a young
and religious soldier telling a
preacher from Texas, that he believed, that not one in ten of the
men in Camp Kearney"were Christians. By that he probably meant
that most of them would rather
play poker or baseball; smoke
"Coffin Nails;" drink contraband
boozerine; or flirt with pretty
senoritas than attend Bible class,
long prayer meetings, or listen to
si ell-proof sermons upon hell, love,
peace, goodwill, etc.
I do not agree with the young
soldier, for I believe when the acid
test of war is applied that, 99 per
cent, of the fine yonng men at
Camp Kearney will prove to be
real Christians in heart and deeds;
ever ready, as Liberty's common
soldiers to die, or puffer in defence
of flag, home and principle.,. Ever
ready to sacrifice themselves, in
order that future generations may
live in peace and harmony, unbound by the chains that are
welded by sordid autocratic military rulers.
In the present rude and unpleasant conditions that are prevailing in France, many of the
most reckless and apparently non-
religions soldiers were, when it
came to a showdown, real Christlike in their deeds; even if they
did not sit in front pews when far
away from the blood-red battle
line. Some of the wildest and
bravest men in America, (look at
the Princess Pats) rushed to
France with the Canadian army,
and they were a snprise and
wonder to the solemn British chaplains. With no fear of death they
seemed to glory in giving up their
lives for the cause of justice and
freedom. Always making light of
their own woes and wounds, they
were ever ready to sacrifice all, in
order to help a stricken comrade,
thus displaying jn deeds the highest and noblest qualities of a virile
manhood. Afe the front many
soldiers pray, as well as fight. A
British Tommie was asked by a
chaplain if be said his prayers.
"Yes Sir, I pray like hell every
night," replied the Tommie, in a
sincere and respectful tone of voice.
Situated as it is, beneath the
sunny skies, and in the glorious
climate of California, Kearney is
the most favored training camp in
all the world, and the soldiers have
little to pray for, nnl ess it might
be for a little more time in San
Diego, and the privilege of rough-
locking the clock, jnst before
"Taps" puts a dark hush in the
tents, or reveille chases the echoes
over the mesa. No doubt, our
dear boys will grow more serious,
when they cross the bloe, see the
crimson stains made by the red
hand of Mars, and are waiting
with fixed bayonets to go into
action. Those are the moments
that torture the soul, and nearly
all who think, breathe a silent
pTayer to the /Unseen Power that
rules the universe, but does not
stop cruel wars, nor keep a
mother's heart from bleeding when
the cable flashes that a loved one
has gone under, while going,
'Over The Top."

| Sheep in Strong Demand
i Great Interest Being Taken in Sheep
Raising in Saskatchewan
Judging by the correspondence re-'
e.eived by the live slock branch of
the Saskatchewan department of agriculture, a great development is due
to take place iu thc sheep industry
of this province. Inquiries from intending purchasers arc being received daily, and the demand is not confined to any particular section, as
farmers from all over the province,
attracted doubtless by high prices
of both wool and mutton, are anxious to engage in so profitable a
branch of their industry. Two thousand bead purchased under the live
stock purchase and sales net of this
province have been placed this fall,
and orders for many more arc already on hand and increasing rapidly. With a view to keeping iu the
province as many sheep as possible,
a circular letter is being sent to all
sheep owners, asking them to advise
jth<: department of any sheep they
may have for side. It is hoped by
this means lo satisfy at least part of
the demand this fall. The apparently
general desire to go iu for sheep
raising is viewed wilh much satisfaction.

was completely lost on the cabman,
who answered: "You speak truth.
What i.s the use of liberty if wc cannot do what we like?" Was the cabman tiie exception to the rule? Judging by the numerous motor cars and
cabs to bc seen in Petrograd in a

lie was  decidedly the rule.

Strange Recovery of Jewels
Who   Opened   the   Lusitania's   Safe
Is a Mystery
When the Lusilania was torpedoed
by a German submarine off the
coast of Ireland, with the loss of
1,100 lives, she carried with her,
among other rich freight, a consignment of diamonds in transit from
New York to London upon which
the Union Insurance Company of
Bangor, Mc, carried a risk of $13,-
The company promptly paid the
claim, and entered thc $13,000 in its
loss account. But, it now appears,
long after thc great disaster, the insurance company received a London
draft for the full amount of its risk,
with the information that the diamonds had been recovered, says The
Louisville l'ost.
Au Irish fisherman, upon hauling
his trawls, found that hc bad booked
the most valuable fish in his career���

enough thc address of a firm of London jewelers, and which upon examination was found lo contain diamonds���the. gems upon    which    the
Bullet Before Report
Experiments   Prove   Sound   Travels
More Slowly Than Bullet
In the firing- line it has often been
noticed that bullets travelling at
high speed produce two sounds. A
man fired at from about 400 yards
hears first a vicious crash. That is
the bullet passing-. A little later
the report of the rifle comes along.
The speed of sound has, in fact,'
been beaten by thc speed of rifle bullets.
Modern military rifle bullets, when
fired, travel at from 2,000 to 3,000
feet in one second. Sound can only
travel along at 1,100 feet per second.
So it happens that when a man who
has been fired at hears the report of
a rifle, he knows he is safe���at least,
from that particular shot.
It is, naturally, at long ranpes that
the two distinct sounds arc most noticeable. At a range of 1,000 yards
a bullets arrives at least .a second,
and sometimes more, in advance of
thc report. The sound of the flying
bullet is caused by a vacuum at its
Horse Meat as Human Food
Appears to Be Gaining in Popularity
in the United States
Eight million people in the United
States, says a -writer in The Breeders' Gazette, were born in countries
where horses, mules, asses, donkeys
or burros arc slaughtered for human
consumption. Light million more
people live in the United States who
speak the tongue of the nationality
from which they sprang, with quite
as much fluency as they speak English. At least four million Americans
could be found who have no foolish
prejudices as to what they eat. The
icadi o.f one American association of
lorsemen states that there arc 4,000-
Bangor  Insurance  company,    among
others, carried risks.    The  fisherman j 000  horses    in  the    countrv    which
got his due amount of salvage,    and j might as well be    eaten.      Dressing
the diamond merchants were glad to
return the insurance money.
Thc puzzle is: Having presumably
been locked up in thc purser's safe,
how did the diamond packet gel
loose so that it came up on the fisherman's trawl?���From the New Loudon Day.

Horse meat has already been used
for food in part of the United States,
Portland, Ore., appears to have been
the first American city in which
horse meat was generally aud successfully sold. Sales beg-an late in
1917, and were placed under proper
city supervision by a health ordinance. Dr. George Parrish of ".the
Portland health department report >
that up to October 20, 175 horses had
been slaughtered and sold for meat.
Cincinnati is the first city in the
middle west to provide for sale of
horse meat, During the summer of
1917 Dr. John A. Murphy, then a
mest inspector in the service of thc
United States government, while stationed on packing house inspection
in that city, determined to give the
sale of horse meat a trial. Two
horses were slaughtered at thc start,
and the retail shop opened Saturday
morning, Sept. 29. Thc crowds,
largely made up of curiosity-seekers,
nearly blocked two sqaures,_ but all
thc meat was sold before night, and
the shop had to shut down temporarily for supplies.   More horses were

Shoot thc Way You Shout'
A Good Motto to Be Learned During These War Times
Theodore Roosevelt, has long been
known    as    an.   apt    phraseritaker���
"speak softly, but carry a big stick,"
"malefactors  of great  wealth,"  "rav. e
suicide," and many others  come    to
mind as his contribution to the vernacular strength of what    we    may
perhaps be   permitted   to    call   thc
American  language,      At    a    recent
meeting in New York hc coined another  epigrammatic  sentence   which
should be added to the list.   A great
audience gathered in Madison Square
Garden   at   a public   meeting    under
the auspices of the mayor's  committee on national defence.    Tlie crowd
shouted its approval of the  patriotic
speeches   to   which  it  listened.   The
speech of a captain in the Australian
army who has been wounded twenty
times: in the  war  wais received with
especial    enthusiasm.       When    Mr.
Roosevelt's turn came.lie referred to
this  Australian soldier's    speech    as
the best address of the evening, and
said   to   the  audience  that   they   did
well  to applaud  hini, but  added:   "I
shout." The. country, must realize j
this more fully than perhaps it does
if the United States and its allies are
lo bc victorious in the war. "Shoot
the way you shout" is a good motto
for these war times.���The  Outlook.

_C. Verc Brown, speaking in Winnipeg, said that about 40 per cent, of
farmers in Manitoba, Alberta and
Saskatchewan were in a position to
deal on a cash basis, but did not do
so because they had formed thc
credit habit and because the average
merchant did not require thcni, or
make it worth their while, to pay
cash. Out of 890 merchants in rural
centres where thc Bank of Commerce has branches. 703 allow no
cash discount, Air. Brown declared.
The refusal of rural merchants to
give discounts for cash was one of
the main reasons for the success of
thc mail order house, the speaker asserted. The banks were now attempting to give better service to the
agricultural population, and greater
co-operation was required.

American     and     English      Peoples
Fought for and Won Their
The British empire is in reality a
British commonwealth. It is not
held together by thc means the world
has been accustomed to associate
with empire. That word can no longer properly be applied to_ it unless
divested of the meaning given to it
by Napoleon and thc Hohenzollerns.
It is not a military empire conquered
and held together by force of arms.
It is a commonwealth of free peoples, self-governing democracies,
bound together for the maintenance
of freedom in the world. Such a
commonwealth is the natural ally of
American democracy. Both havc the
same ideals, the same traditions. The
American colonists were not thc first
British subjects to conquer British
kingship. They only did to George
III. what Englishmen at home had
done to the Stuarts. Both thc American and English peoples fought for
aud won their democracy and are
now and always must be allies in the
fight for its preservation and extension.���Kansas City Star.
Cleaning: Grain for Seed
A Few Useful Hints on the Use of
the Fanning Mill
Tn using- a fanning mill one must
be governed by the conditions of the
grain lie is cleaning. As the different grainshavc different weights per
bushel it is necessary not only to
use different sized screens, but also
to regulate the wind, shake and
speed of the mill to suit thc different weights and sizes of grain to be
cleaned. The fanning mill will only
separate grains or seeds of different
sizes or ���weights. The wind is one
of the most important factors.
The first thing to do is to examine the grain thoroughly, see what
other grains, weed seeds, etc., there
arc in it, and make up one's mind
as to the best way to clean them
In cleaning oats for seed regulate
the machine according to directions
on thc mill. The first operation consists of blowing out all thc chaff.
Most of the very small seeds will go
! through thc screen under thc hopper,
but a certain amount will go through
the screen in the lower shoe. To
make a perfect job and to get all the
larger weed seeds, such as vetches,
cockle, wild buckwheat, or even
wheat and barley that are not the
same size and weight as oats, the
grain must bc put through once or
twice  more,
The second cleaning requires quite
a different operation. Thc riddles arc
to be arranged as for cleaning wheat,
and anything of the size aud length
of wheat should go through the riddles, and the large, long, heavy oats
should go over the back of thc machine. Care must be taken to sec
that thc proper slant is on the riddles so as to carry the oats over, and
all the other grain, etc., down under
the mill. In regulating the wind and
shake, use very little wind, as you
do not want to blow any of the light
seeds or small wheat or barley over
with the oats; and havc very little
shake, so that the oats will not bc
stood on end and go through, but
slide over thc back of the machine.
In cleaning wheat for seed, after
thc chaff and small seeds are all removed take out one or two of the
wheat riddles, aud open all the wind
doors wide. Good, plump wheat,
weighing 60 pounds per bushel and
over, will take more wind than the
average fanning mill can supply. Thc
good, heavy grain cannot be blown
over, but all thc lighter grains, also
oats and barley, ought to find their
way over thc back of thc machine.
Care must be taken to use conductors to carry the grain near enough
to the back of thc machine to give
the wind a chance. When there is
still some small grain or seeds left,
it may be sometimes necessary to
run the grain through twice. Should
white caps in wdieat (wheat bulls) be
found troublesome to remove, select
one of the long screens belonging to
thc lower shoe���just large enough to
let thc wheat through���place the
screen directly under the hopper,
and this will extend far enough back
to carry thc white caps out over the
machine. This long screen will also
be found most useful when cleaning
oats, whenever there are. thistle tops
or joints of oat straw amongst thc
Man}' experiments have proven
that careful fanning pays -'- many
Limes over for the trouble in cleaning thc seed grain. You have pure,
clean seed, free from weed seeds,
and the longer and plumper seed
produces heavier crops.���John Fix-

Amazing- Transport Figures
Men     and    Material     Transported

tons of explosives and supplies 25,-

13,000,000 men who had crossed and.
recrossed the seas only 3.500 had
been lost, 2,700 through enemy action
and the remainder through the peril
of the seas.
All this was apart from 130,000,000
tons of food and other material
transported  in British ships.
Our expeditionary force numbered
at the beginning of the war 160,000
men. Our expeditionary forces today
number over 3,000,000,

Lloyd George, "gathered the spears

Southern Alberta   Fanners   Increasing Their Herds
Southern Alberta farmers are sparing no efforts to increase the size
and otherwise improve their herds,
and arc buying cattle as fast as they
can get them. Recently 30 head of
Shorthorn heifers from Ontario were
sold at Lethbridge at an average
price of more than $300 a head, thc
highest price realized being $600. A
number of bulls were sold at the
same sale, realizing an average price
of more than $400, with $575 the top
price. .Fanners in this part of the
country have been earning large
profits, and are investing their money in such a manner as will ensure
a continuance of their profitable operation* in years to come.
Trench Musings
The   Commonplace   Things   of  Life
Appear as Luxuries to the Man
at the Front
We arc back in the trenches. It
was a little strange at first, but we
soon srot readjusted. It makes a big
difference whether one is in the front
line or in the second or third. And
although one lies behind broad wire
entanglements, one has to keep_ a
steady watch. For there are openings
in these entanglements, through
which we pass to make_ an attack.
In the other lines it is safer���and
also pleasanter. We crowd together
usually in threes or fours. In the
hiding places there is the loudest
talking, of course. The debate usually runs on thc question as to how-
lit will be after the war. How strange
it seems to one sitting here, to imagine peace, and to think of sleeping
on a bed night after night, on a real
bed, in a room all to one's self! And
of breaking fast with a newspaper
by your side! Or of a walk in the
Bois de Boulogne! And of hearing
nicely dressed boys and girls sing
and play in the streets! And of being able to wash as often as you
like, and to feel the freshness o��
clean linen on your body!
Of course there are other wishes
and luxuries.
In the end every one is lost in his
dreams. And then the thought come3
sometimes: formerly, when wc had
the enjoyment of all these things, it
seemed quite common, they made no
one particularly happy. How long
will it take after we get them back
before we shall take them again as a
matter of course? There is so little
in life that has real enduring value.
One looks for it here; another there;
no one finds it. Who knows whether
there are not some among us who,
after many years, will think back to
this time with a sense of regret and
desire, who will feel that this was
their most beautiful year, a timo

habit to a certain extent.
Many of the conditions under
which we live are artificial. We
eat too much, take too little natural exercise, and have too much
worry and anxiety. The digestive system does not get a cha_nce.
The liver is usually first to get
out of kilter, then the bowels become constipated, and the whole
process of digestion is disorganized. Instead of being properly
digested, the food ferments and
causes sour stomach, belching of
wind, pressure of gas about the
heart, suffocating feelings and
fainting spells.
Headaches, pains in the limbs
and back, tired, depressed feelings, irritability and discouragement are other symptoms.

A Letter From France
The following letter was received by
Mrs. Harris, of Anaconda, from France ot
date of Dec. 3rd, 1917:
Iliad the great pleasure of receiving
the parcel you Ladies of the Greenwood
Red Cross so kindly sent me, and I wish
to express iny deepest appreciation df the
same. I/would like to.thank you all individually bnt my time and circumstances
. not being very favorable, I hope you will
do so for me. On. the little card you enclosed you say you wish me all I wish
myself. Well I can assure you from the
bottom of my heart there is no place I'd
sooner be than in Greenwood. I spent
many happy days and left maiiy old
friends there, and I hope, some day to
have the pleasure of seeing yoii all again.
I enlisted with the 172nd Battalion and
came over to England a. year ago last
October, came over to France in Dec,
and got wounded on March jist, got
. back to.England on a hospital ship. on
April 16th (my birthday by the -way) so
there you have a brief history of my life
for the last fifteen months. I guess it is
unnecessary for me to lell you that life
but here isn't all pleasure by a long shot
but at the same time it isn't all tragedy.
The cloiids of France even have a silver
lining, so.iretinies, and just at present we
are having a good enough time.
I wish I could-write you an interesting
letter giving you some of my experiences
but as you know the censor woiit allow
much news to pass. I don't think there
are jpany out here who haven't had some
thrilling moments. The time I got
wounded a high-explos;ive shell burst
among five of us all in a space of about
ten feet,., killed three and wounded lis
two I came just about as close to being
put out of business again a few days
after I got back this trip, but this time it
was in an aerial raid. They say that a
miss is as good as a mile, bnt a miss by a
few yards of a couple of aerial bombs is
a whole lot harder on the : nerves. than a
miss by a mile believe me.
I guess this is about all I can tell you
at present I hope this will find you and
all my Greenwood friends in: the best
of health and prosperity. ... V:;,v X.}.

Why The Telephone Is Instantaneous
Sound travels at the rate of 1,070 feet per second; the
voice when telephoning travels at the rate of rs.ooo miles per
second. Think of it! The reason sound travels faster by telephone is because it is accelerated by electricity, not very much,
but enough for the purpose.
So you can see the telephone is the quickest���the surest to
send, the quickest to reach the ear you seek, and the easiest to
bring the answer back.   From anywhere, too.

"Over The Top"
Nature has made British Columbia rich and
beautiful* The waters that run through and
surround it, are teeming with edible fish, include
ing clams. Its lofty sky^scraping mountains are
filled with almost every known mineral, while
the yellow power of earth'gold, it hides amid the
sands of many a creek, Its fertile valleys and
hillsides contain millions of acres that are doing
nothing to go "OVER THE TOP/' for lack of
cultivation* Its forests of gigantic trees are the
envy of the world. The scenery is grandly
magnificient, while the climate contains the ozone
that puts pep into the human frame, filling it with
life, health and energy.
With all these advantages this Province
should have millions of happy people within its
confines, and^et it has a scant 400,000, Then
sings the little bird in the tree, "What's The
Matter With B, G"
Nothing, except that it is like many a
business man. It does not advertise, or does
not know how. Turn on the bright light of
effective and suggestive advertising, until all
the world thinks and talks about this glorious
B. C, the brightest gem in the cluster of
Canada's provincial diamonds. Get a move
on, go over the top, waving your flag and
blowing your cornet in front of the milliens
that have not yet been "swiped" by the red
hand of Mars.
In the meantime do not fall to boost your
own business by dropping a soul-touching,
money getting ad into Greenwood's Leading
Excitement. Come across with enthusiasm
and plenty of printer's ink, and the public
will shell you with dollars, until you grow
tired picking them up. If you are wise, you
will always advertise, in
and get your job printing at^the same office.
