Interesting Lectures By
Doctors Learoyd and
The April meeting of the Anyox
P. T. A. was tlie occasion of addresses by Dr. Learoyd and Dr.
Macdonald on topics related to
their professional praotice. Dr.
Learoyd dealt in a general way
with the glands of internal secretion. With particular emphasis
on goitre in its various manifestations he pointed out the danger of
the injudicious use of potassium
iodide in certain typesof hyperthyroidism. He mentioned that the
local water was deficient in magnesium and calcium salts and that,
accordingly, care must be exercised
in the choice of foods which will
supply this deficiency. He recommended liver as an article of diet
for those whose blood stream requires strengthening.
Dr. Macdonald demonstrated
graphically the order of the appearance of the teeth in the temporary
and permanent dentition. He
glanced at certain precautionary
measures which prevent distortion
of the permanent teeth. Chief
among these is a well-balanced diet-
Dealing with the teeth singly, he
explained the variation in the
sensitiveness of different persons'
teeth as being due to the fact that
the nerves are not restricted to the
central portion of the tooth, but
rather infiltrate the osseous fabric
just beneath the enamel.
Mr. F. Dresser obliged with two
piano selections which were the
subject of complimentary allusion
in the vote of thanks which upon
motion of Mr. Warwick and Rev.
J. S. Brayfield was accorded to
those who had taken part in the

Anyox Tennis Club Elect
Officers For Coming
The Annual Meeting of the
Anyox Tenuis olub was held- in
Recreation Hall on Monday April
16th. with a good attendance of
devotees of the game. Election of
offioers of the club was facilitated
because of the unanimity with
which nominations were accepted.
As in the past General Manager
Charles Bocking was accorded the
Honorary Presidency. A new
office was created, that of Honorary Vice-President, in which Mr.
W. R. Lindsay was installed. The
President for this year will be Mr.
R. 0. Cutler; Vioe-President, Mr.
George Lee; Secretary, Mr. V. S.
McRae. For the election of an
Executive Committee ballots were
necessary, the choice resulting iu
Mrs. Fricker and Mrs. Roy with
Messrs. Cavers aud G. H. Stewart.
The President of the Community
League, Mr. 0. G. Macintyre addressed the meeting saying that, as
the League had put the courts into
good playing condition, a fee of
$2.50 should meet the club's needs.
He added that it was imperative
that only members of the A. C. L.
should be accepted as members of
the tennis club. President Cutler
intimated to the members that all
complaints and suggestions must
be made in writing to the Executive. No doubt some of the members will ask for a further heightening of the wire on the sides.

Ample Funds Available
For Development
Of Saddle
At a meeting of the board of directors on April 2, a futher $10,000
working capital was arranged for>
thus increasing to $40,000 the amount available for this season's de
velopment at the company's two
properties—the Silver Crest group
just north of the Big Missouri and
the Saddle group on Hastings Arm,
near Anyox.
B. C. Equipment Co. report good
progress being made in fabrication
of material for tramway at Saddle
property, whioh they expect to
ship by steamer to Anyox about
May 1, thence to the mine by scow,
therefore aotual construction should
be under way early in May.
Silver Crest directors also hope
to have development operations
under way at the company's Salmon River property within thirty
days, the improved transportation
facilities afforded by the new road
to Big Missouri making it possible
to start work earlier in the sea«on
than heretofore.

Excellent Concert Given
On Sunday By Anyox
The Anyox Concert Orchestra,
under the leadership of Stuart Steele
gave a very successful concert in
the Recreation Hall on Sunday
evening last, which was full of
merit and appeal.
In the general musical excellence
the best individual effort was the
conducting of Stuart Steele.

him with the most massive of numbers there was a good variety and
appeal to the programme. Under
his leadership the different sections
of the orchestra played in unison.
Assisting in the programme in
solos, were Sidney Armstrong,
playing "Cavaliar Rusticana," in a
fluent violin solo; Austin Lindgren
and Stuart Steele in a trombone
duet, playing "I'll wear a white
rose for you;" Stephen Jones, saxophone solo, "That old Irish mother of mine;" Jack Barclay, clarinet
with S. Steele, trombone rendered
a duet in fine form.
The assisting pianist for the
evening was John Gillies, the
youngest member of the orchestra.
The orchestral selections, were:
March, "Robin Hood;" Overture,
"Gems of Ireland;" Duet, Lindgren and Steele, Fox Trot,
"Chinese     Patrol;" Overture,
•'Crown of Gold, March, "Abide
with Me;" Duet, J. Barclay and

Canada's forests are going fast.
Yet how many people in this
country betray any concern? As
long as Canadians pay no attention
to forest facts, the mischief will go
on. Sixty percent, of Canada's
original forest wealth has been destroyed by fire! Thirteen per cent
has been cut by axe and saw!
Twenty-seven per cent, is left as
the capital to supply an increasing
and insatiable demand for lumber
and paper and other products!
Twenty-seven per cent! In a
few generations we have reduced
our capital to 27 per cent, of the
original. And what have we to
show for it? We have some
cleared agricultural land which
once was forest, but this in the
case of the best farming regions at
least, was chiefly hardwood forest.
Our cut-over coniferous area is
largely rough, sandy; rocky land of
little use except where minerals
may have been deposited. Canadians should think over these things
during ''Canadian Forest Week"
which is next week, which is an
effort to have them do so. It
means much to the future of this
country. Unless the remainder of
our forest capital can be protected
and wisely used, in twenty-five
years at the present rate of destruction by fire and axe, we shall have
used up all our available timber.
Forestry experts claim that if fire
can be kept out, Canada's forest
growth each year will provide all
the timber and pulp wood required.
The chief problem, however, is
not how to fight fire, but how to
prevent it. Every man, woman
and child who goes into the woods
should know the danger and feel
the responsibility. Hon. Charles
Stewart, Minister of the Interior,
is doing a national work in organizing the fight against forest fires.
The people of Canada can do indefinitely more, however, by
exercising care to prevent them.
As between the bee and the
ant, both touted as examples of
industry, a lot of men prefer to
pattern their lives after the latter,
which works for itself instead of
laying up treasures for others.

Practical Experience for
Mining Students
Dean Patty ofthe Alaska School
of Mines feels that too many grad
nates from mining schools lack the
confidence to go into a mine; set
up a machine; drill and blast a
round; and put in a set of timbers.
To meet this failing the Alaska
School of Mines requires that its
sophomore students take a two-
oredit laboratory course in practical mining. This class devotes
six hours each week during the
semester to this work. Last semester a group of six students drove
156 ft. of tunnel at a cost of $596.47,
or $3.83 per foot. The students
rotated as machine men, compressor
man, and shift boss. Detailed cost
accounts were kept, and these
records will be used in a later
course in mine cost keeping.
Repairs Commenced On
Railway at Stewart
Portland Canal News
The first contract for the rehabilitation of the Portland Canal Short-
line was let this week. This was
for the reconstruction of the trestle
bridge over Bear river just north of
Stewart. The pile driver and equipment are already being moved to
the site, and men are working in
the woods taking out piling. As
soon as the snow has sufficiently
gone crews will be put to work
clearing the second growth willows
etc off the grade. It is also the intention of the company to erect a
sawmill at Bitter creek for the purpose of cutting ties and bridge timbers with which to renew the existing line.

Structural Materials and Miscellaneous Minerals, $50,175,407, making its mineral production to the end
of 1926, show an
Aggregate Value of $988,108,470
;      The substantial progress of the Mining industry of this Province is strikingly exhibited in the following
figures, which show the value of production for successive five-year periods:   For all years to 1895, inclus-
,507,968; for five years-
1916-1920, $189,922,725;

Lode mining has only been in progress for about 25 years, and only about one-half of the Province has
been even prospected; 200,000 square miles of unexplored mineral bearing land are open for prospecting.
The Mining Laws of this Province are more liberal and the fees lower than those of any other Province
in the Dominion, or any Colony in the British Empire.
Mineral locations are granted to discoverers for nominal fees.
Absolute Titles are obtained by developing such properties, security of which is guaranteed  by
Crown Grants.
Practically all British Columbia Mineral Properties upon which development work has been done
are described in some one of the Annual Reports of the Minister of Mines. Those considering
mining investments should refer to such reports. They are available without charge on application
to the Department of Mines, Victoria, B. C. Reports covering each of the six mineral Survey
Districts are published separately, and are available on application. Reports of the Geologioal
Survey of Canada, Winch Building, Vancouver, are recommended as valuable sources of information.

Cornwall Has Enviable
Reputation As Mining
In Cornwall, within an area of
about 1,600 square miles, roughly
5JKlO lode mines have been worked
iijFthe last two centuries, and as
many again might be worked iu
th-* future.
Almost every known mineral,
metallic or non-metallic, has been
found in Cornwall, including the
rarest. Fewer than a dozen substances, however, have as yet been
exploited, tin and copper predominating. From time immemorial
up lo about half a century ago, alluvial tin deposits were worked on
a large scale; and during the middle
period of the two centuries of lode
mining. Cornwall, for more than
50 years, was the world's largtst
copper producer. Alluvial tin and
copper ores have been exhausted,
but lode tin, in all likelihood, never
will be; tin persists to a great depth
and there are so many "occurrences
of it, both iu number and type.
Apart from deep mines many tin-
bearing lodes are already known,
but still largely virgin, which at a
lower figure than today,s price for
the metal would prove profitable.
Because of past difficulties of tenure
and recurring periodsof low prices,
these properties have been barely
".scratched"; they have been merely
proved to contain high tin ore over
good widths and at shallow depths
No  Obstacles   Should   Be
Placed Against Britishers
"We should go to the limit to
make it clear we want all the Britishers that we can settle to come to
this country," W. J. Black, director
of colonization of the Canadian
National Railways informed the
agricultural committee of the
House recently.
Dr. Black declared that since the
public of Great Britain appeared
of the opinion that Canada was
not anxious to encourage British
to come to this country, an effort
should be made to convince them
to the contrary. He made recommendations concerning medical and
civil inspections, the movement of
juveniles and single men with a
view to encouragement of British
