"The 'liian who 'gdes 'th^re* tb' golf must forget all abbiit the gamfe lie plays when tie is honie', and make UP hi? mind that he, Ix^s ..sbmejliing; entirely;'new'^ and iiovei' before.jhim.. If 6e tackles the Assoiiaa'cOucse in"! this spirit; and gets used to if;,''all will be well; I Through tbe green jthere is, of coursej very IJftle; run on-the ball, and the putting greeiia are made of rolled Nile mud, which-makes that departmpnt of the game much wha.t It is on frozen greens. It Is considered rather gobd than otherwise,to get down In three putts,' but the approaching is the most difficult- part -of'the round.' The .only way-to. get the ball on to the green so that it 'will star there is to* ;j)ltch almost exactly a yard short of' the green � so that It will just trickle on ifjom there. It takes "a iine player and one,up to a^l the tricks and'dodges, to get on, to it, and goround the'nine-hole course, in 45. A golfer would not go to Assouan to .get into.fbrm for a season's competitive golf in' Ws 'own country, but when lie "gobs there for other purposes and must bave some exercise-well, he can golf, such as It Is. , ''^�'��\ � Hazai-ds of the ordinary sort are not requireij, as it Is felt that there Is quite enough to do In the' way pt approaching without .them.

"When the thaw supervenes suddenly on 'a. frosty night there is scarcely any remedy in th'e-armory, of a goliter that can be adopted to mitigate his misfortune. It Js largely a question of circumstance" rather than modification of style to suit an abnormal condition ot the weather, and wlv.m the foothold Is Insecure no artful expedient In the way of adaptability can ever help the struggling player battling with misfortune to play.anything but an exceedingly ordinary and com-inonplace game. Indeed,.of all the conditions of weather that constitute the serious tri-al of the golfer no condition is so disturbing, so hopeless, so Waffling to find a remedy ifor as a frosted course rap- that of-customs duties and inland revenue duties; Hk>wever,' no hew" arrangement had been suggested by the Dominion gov-bniinent to the province and. ho hai'd-ly thouijht 'the Doiiilnipn govornmen.t Avould go 'tb the expense ot duplicating tlie^ police force in the four western provinces � and 'undertaking;' to maintain' law 'and order' which under the constitution, the provinces were responsible for.

The Mounted police in the province's of Alberta, and Saskatchewan, ' 'after; the proviilces v/evn fonn-ed, were paid partly 'by the provinces and partly ;by the Dpmihlon; but were under the direction ahd^ received their instructions iflfcra the dbjpartments of; the attorney geiieral in'TJOth'provinces. "When the R.N.'W.M.P. were, withdrawn, it had become necesary for the provincial governmepts ty' organize a new police force, and this had been done'. �� ,' , . '. So far as Mr. Boyle was aware, there had been no suggestlou from the Dominion goyemment as to returning to the old status and he believed therefore if. the press report was correct, that' the 'Dominion police and the R.N.'W.M.P. were to be amalz-gamated and it would be the intention, he thought to .use the force for the same �purposes'-that the Dominion [Police were', used prior to the war', namely, the preventing of Infractions of the Dominion revenue laws, chiefly In Ten-Pin Encounter--^arbns Wheat Barons ^will'lje'Here ...^ .

"Organized labor" in Canada is big enough to do this In its own Interest, and,owing to the many highly-colored reports being sent' broadcast over the whole world, it,is Imposs^le to form any, correct opinion ot what :i3 really going on in that country.
