The   Grand   Forks   hockey   team  came up Monday night   and   played  Phoenix a fust exhibition {fame, ending in a,victory for Phoenix of   6  to  2.  On account of Grand   Forks   not  having- any ice and   their  team   not  being able to   hold   practices,   they  did not wish  to play a league game  at this time, and their   wishes   were  acceded to by the Phoenix club.  A special    train    was    run    from  Grand Forks and   upwards   of  270  people came up on  it.     The.se   with  the local fans and the visirors   from  Greenwood, made a crowd  of over  .   800 people in- the   rink tto   see   the  game.    The ga'me was - full  of���ex-���  %   citement, but it-could not be described as .a rough   one,   although   the  players checked hard and made free  use of the timber.

Nelson and .Greenwood  were the other teams defeated,   and  at Nelson on New Year's night   the  locals met with their only defeat.

ThevBusted Man  Don't Watch the Clock  According to eastern papers Vancouver  is  still   "dead  broke"  and  thousands  of helpless   people   are  wandering  our streets seeking  relief,   says - the   Province.      To   this  town of misery and  despair   comes  Paderewski,  the great Polish   pianist.    The seats had to be   paid  for.  It was not   a  charity  performance,  and Paderewiski is both   a   personality and_a  luxury.   'The_ Orpheum  was packed  with   Vancouver's  citizens from   floor , to   ceiling.

Sir Thomas Lipton offers the   fol-  owing good advice to young men:  "The young fellow who wants to  get along in the world   and  is  particular about his   hours  of labor is  on   the   wrong   track.    Employers  don't like the  man   who ' is  always  watching the clock���who is  always  looking for 5 or 6,. so   that  he  can  get away.    Rich or poor he  stands  little show   to succeed.    It's  wonderful���the confidence it inspires   to  an employer when he   realizes  that  his employe is pulling at   the  same  end of the rope that he is pulling at  in the way of making  a  success   of  the business." ->'     .       '  The man who never has the price  finds life a dismal fraud;  the  world  presents a face of ice  that  simply  can't be thawed.    When to the eating  house  he   pokes   to   break his  daily   fast,   the   waiter's   wait   on  t'other folks, and leave him  till   the  last.    When   he goes   to  the grocer's lair, or to   the  butcher's  den,  the clerks  wake  up and see who's  there, then go  to sleep  again.    Of  course    it's* wrongs we   shouldn't  judge  a man  by what he owns; we  shouldn't sneeringly say,   "Fudge!  He  has no  stack of bones!"    The  man   whose" pockets   are   a  blank  should get the cordial hand as  well  as one who to the bank  takes  coin  to beat the band. -J But the facts are  facts���though the're not  nice���and  all the sunny smiles are for the man  who has the price, the coin iu forty  styles.    You may be long on   sterling  woith,   but  if you're short  on  kale, you'll find it lonesome^ here on  earth,   and   protests   won't   avail.  Your observation should  suffice   to  leach you this is true;   then  always  strive to have the  price,   and   folks  will play with you.���Walt Mason.

Care of the Teeth  There is no process of the toilet  so important as that of brushing  the teeth, says Lillian Russell. Children shoujd be taught to brush  their teeth from the age when they  are able to handle a tooth brush,  and, they should be taught the correct method of brushing, which is  up and down���not from one side of  the mouth to the other. An annual  trip to the dentist should be made,  and a good plan to observe is to  set aside one day in the year for  this purpose.' Then any defects  can be remedied in their first stages.  Remember the keynore of facial  beauty is in the > blessing of solid,  white, beautiful teeth  When tartar forms-on the teeth  it is best to go to a dentist and  have it removed. One should have  the teeth thoroughly cleaned, and  examined about twice a/year so as  to have them looked after and keept  in perfect condition.  ��'(��X  Old Time Printers  In. the   last   issue  of the  Typographical Journal mention   is   made  of a number of the old time printers  ,who toured   tne   west  some  years  ago when jobs   were   plentiful   and  "panhandling" was  good.

Barney   Cosgrove,   who   has   held  the    skating championship    of  the  Boundary for the   past   two  years,  was defeated last  Friday   night  by  H.   Hartley.     The long  talked   of  race was pulled off just  before   the  Intermediate game   between   Phoenix   and   Greenwood    was   called.  There was quite a large  crowd  of  spectators   and   there   were  many  outbursts   of   enthusiasm    as    the  race, progressed.    Both men   were  in the pink   of condition.     Hartley,  according  to  the  agreement,   was  given half a lap the start.    For the  first 'few  rounds  both  contestants  showed considerable  speed.     Hartley   gained   on  Cosgrove  and  followed him closely for a time,   then  about the 18th lap he dashed ahead.  Two years ago the same two pulled  off a race, at which  time  Cosgrove  won.
