Games were mere starting points for verbiage. Skill on ice was at nought. Tho filer affidavits was to reign supreme. The stereotype phrasing, "The peo- ple are growing hockey mad" -was true, but with a reverse English. They were getting mad, at the way the battles wero being waged on the desks-of the league officials, and tho flow of ink supplanting the flow of perspiration from the players.

For the first hour nothin happened to marr the pleasure of being crushed fruit. I felt very much like an evap- orated dried Peach; my ruffles were Ironed flat in the crush. They was holding a mock parliament on the ice. Tho debate must have been interest- ing because the players, officials and managers all seemed to he excited. The roomer was that Lethbridge had a star boarder, a certain Mr. Grant. Blairmore sed they was agin Ireland and that green sweater spoilt the I color scheme. Anyway it reminded i them of the uniform the Montreal Wanderers used to wear. They also claimed he dldn'b have to work for no I living, and his meals was likely pro- I vided free.

I guess that's what the confab was about; I don't noe for shure. While Mister Dixon was away the Blairmore judge of play did some trick skating; he's awful handy with skates; he noes where to wear them and everything. Mr. Kelly was the master's voice in the prayer meeting held beforo the real service began. He skated at a dizzy speed from one manager then to the other, and vicha water, or whatever you say when you mean back and .forth. His trick ca- pers on skees kept the crowd in con- vulsions for the first hour, and amus- ed the rest of the nite.

One paper states that the Attorney General discussed tho sub- ject with certain labor people who seemed favorable to the plan. But it does seem that s6me one should have seen what this would mean to the tories, and those places that specially need the inspection, are not getting it this year. The Factories Inspectors now enter these industrial establish- ments on complaint, and then for child labor, hours and wages ou com- plaint only. Without Inspection This arrangement leaves tte women employed in these places without the protection of surprise vlsita paid at unexpected times by the Factories and Inspector.

A card bearing theso and other pro- visions plainly printed is to be placed in a conspicuous place in every fac- tory. Men Have Their Xow from the provisions cited above, it is evident that the Factories Act was -passed largely for the pro- tection of women and girls. Men also work in factories, but they have their unions, and if anything very serious is the matter, the union will usually find the means of protecting the in- dividual. But the girls and the women who work Iu factories, shops, restaurants, laundries, etc., ara the unorganized unskilled workers. A large percentage of them were forced by dire necessity to become wage earners before they had acquired any good and sufficient means or earning a livel hood. They fear to join a union, for the know that their employer could easll recruit his ranks from the stream o girls whom our present economic sys tern is constantly forcing to be bread winners. In a large percentage of the situations which come under this Ac experience counts for little, so their place could be easily filled. In additlo Every Winter She Suffered KtmJ efMn.
