Adanacs Win Softball
Championship Of
Anyox
With the series tied up with
one win apiece, the Adanacs, holders of the Beach championship
crashed through to win the Softball
Championship of Anyox on Sunday
last.
130 Level, Mine Champions, put
up a real ball game, but a lead of
six runs, set by the Adanacs in the
first inning, was just too much for
the underground men.
Though the Mine boys got two
home runs off Ion, Dodsworth of
the champions did that to Windle
all by himself. The muckers and
miners slowly ate up the Adanacs
lead; but too slowly to win. The
game ended at a score of 7-10,
Joe Antrobus, shortstop for the
Mine, deserves gold medals for the
brand of ball he has played during
the whole series. Benny Windle
who probably can be expected to
excel in softball just as he does in
all other sports, nevertheless deserves great credit for his game.
Benny is, without a doubt, the most
versatile athelete in Anyox
The Adanacs who started in the
league with just a faint idea that
they might become a team to be
reckoned with, have shown what a
real team fighting spirit can do.

Railway Will   Employ
Sixty Men
Will Spend $30,000 This Fall
It is expected that sixty men will
be put to work this fall on the extension of the Canadian North -eastern railway at Stewart, which is
being undertaken by the Consolidated Mining and Smelting Co.
Sum of $30,000 will be spent on
the project this year. Part of the
work will be the construction toward the Naas Valley from the pre>
sent end of steel at Red Cliff about
14 miles from Stewart. All rock
work will be handled on a contract
basis.
By spending $30,000 this year
the Consolidated Co. retains its rail
way charter, under an agreement
with the Provincial Government.

Ducks and Geese Scarce At
Alice Arm
The open season for ducks and
geese commenced on Saturday, and
brjght and early local sportsmen of
both Alice Arm and Anyox were
at their favorite points to take advantage of the unsuspecting birds.
The bags around Alice Arm during Saturday were not heavy,
Barney Turbitt brought home two
geese and Wm. Cummings returned with four ducks. Heavier bags
were, however, reported around
Anyox.
During the week four more
geese were shot at Alice Arm, two
by Mrs. H. Nucioh, one by G. Anderson and another by B. Turbitt.
On the evening of Wednesday
August 29th. the Anyox Y. P. A.
held a small dance and party in the
vestry at Christ Church, in honor
of Miss Florence Dodsworth who
is teaching school at Alice Arm for
the ensuing term; Miss Flora and .
Miss Marion Cavers who are leaving
for school in the east, and Mr. John
Dodsworth who leaves this week
for Vancouver to attend the University. The evening, which was occupied mostly with dancing, was
one of those successful and entertaining gatherings for which the
A. Y. P. A. is becoming known.
With a brief farewell address
Rev. Abraham presented each of
the departing members with pins
emblematic of the A. Y. P. A. as
small souvenirs of many happy and
profitable evenings.
Miss Florence Dodsworth with a
few well chosen words, replied for
those who were being honoured.
The Syncopals, who donated their
services, added much to a very enjoyable evening. With Mr. H.
Lindgren as cornetist and Billy
Wilson hitting everything in sight
at the traps this orchestra continues to make real dance music.
Refreshments were served after
which the entire company gathered
around and sang "For They are
Jolly Good Fellows," and on this
happy note the party closed.
Commencing in early October the
A. Y. P. A. will again meet regularly and will welcome all old and
new members to the vestry of Christ
Church.
Loyal Order of Moose Dance
Was Very Enjoyable
A very enjoyable dance was held
in the gymnasium on Labor Day
by the Loyal Order of Moose. The
music rendered by the Revellers'
Orchestra was superb and the delicious plate supper served in the
spaoious dining room further added
to the success of the evening.
Quite a number of people attended
this, the first dance of the new
season.
First Cohoe Salmon Caught
At Alice Arm
The honor of catching the first
cohoe salmon of the season at Alice
Arm belongs to Wm. Cummings,
He caught a beauty at the Kitsault
River dam with a spoon bait.
Community League Will Hold
Another Fight Card
Tentative arrangements are being
made for another A. C. L. fight
card next month, as an opening
event in the Gym.
Fight cards in Anyox are popular
and Jim Donaldson claims that if
he can get the material he wants,
this will be the best yet.
The fight card will officially open
the Gym. for the winter season,
when basketball will again occupy
the hearts and minds of those inclined to sport.

Journey of Arctic Rein-
Deer Almost Over
After a trek of four years across
Alaska and the northern corner of
the Yukon, nearly 3,000 reindeer
were being purchased by the Canadian Government in 1929, are now
at the west side of the delta of the
Mackenzie River in the Northwest
Territories, and wait the coming of
winter when they will cross the
mouth of the Mackenzie on the ice.
Under the direction of experienced reindeer herders the herd began the arduous 1,000-mile journey
across the roof of the world from
Napaktoolek in Western Alaska to
the Mackenzie River delta in December 1929. Early in January,
1934, the herd started on the 70
mile dash across the mouth of the
Mackenzie from the west to the
east side, but once on the frozen
river, it was discovered that, owing
to the high winds and blizzards
which had prevailed during the winter, large stretches of the ice had
been blown clear of snow, and as
the deer cannot travel on glare ice
it was necessary to make frequent
and long detours from the route originally selected in order to get
footing for the animals. To still
furthur intensify the difficulties, after they had been out for more than
48 hours on the ice a heavy blizzard
arose and in the midst of this the
deer stampeded back along their
trail to the grazing area near Shingle Point where they had spent last
summer.
Another attempt to cross the
Mackenzie will be made in the autumn of this year when the delta
freezes over again.
Mine Softballers Qualify
To Meet Rupert
Defeated Beach Team 2-1
The third and deciding game for
the softball championship of Anyox
was played at the ball field on Wednesday August 29th.
From the viewpoiut of the fans,
' probably no more exciting and suspense-filled game has ever been
played in Anyox.
To call the game air-tight would
be an understatement. Both teams
functioned perhaps as nearly perfect
as any aggregation of humans could.
From start to finish the game was

Three Important Stewart
The past month has seen three
new and important developments
get under way in the Stewart district.
Consolidated Mining and Smelting Company's operations on Big
Missouri were increased to include
the driving of a 2500-foot tunnel
from the Day group over Missouri
Ridge, with the object of opening
at depth the orebodies disclosed by
the Province tunnel.
United Empire Mine crosscut into
its ore in the lower tunnel and
found a width of 15 feet of good
grade material there.
And now the Consolidated Mining
and Smelting Company has begun
its preparation for a start on the
Canadian Northeastern Railway.
game two runs to one, the Mine
can lay no claim to being the better
team. They simply got what is
commonly known as "the breaks."
No criticism could be found with
the Beach team and they can certainly lay claim to sympathy in
losing the best and hardest fought
ball game of the year.
Adanacs Defeat Ex-Rupert
Both the Adanacs and Ex-Rupert
won a game apiece in the Beach
championship series, the last game
was played-on Thursday August
30th. The game was disappointing
after the class of ball that was played the evening before between the
Mine and Beach.
There seems to be no excuse for
Ex-Rupert's loss unless one takes
into consideration the fact that several of their players have been playing strenuous ball of late and may
have been stale. At any rate the
Adanacs very deservedly won the
Beach title to the tune of 12-6.
City of Greenwood Presents
Land To Mining Co.
The City Council of Greenwood
has given Superior Gold Mines, Ltd.
clear title to seven and one-half
acres of land situated in the northeast corner of the city, as a location
for their 50-ton mill which they now
have under construction. The com
pany has also acquired 2.2 acres of
surface rights from other parties,
so they now own approximately ten
acres clear title for the mill site.
The City Council has also agreed
to a fixed taxation of $25.00 per
annum, during the time the company maintains the mill in operation, as an added inducement for
the company to locate within the
city limits. The erection of this
mill, with the probability that small
operators of the district can have
their ores treated locally, is very
important to the city, and lo the
development of the camp generally.
Mr. Harry Bamforth of Chrysan
themum Coon's fame, has hinted at
another show to be held in the near
future.
The Chrysanthemum Coons which
was presented last spring, was a
show in the real minstrel sense and
many have been the requests for
more entertainment of the same high
caliber.
Mr. Bamforth, manager of the
last show, has under pressure yielded, and the new show Will be presented some time this fall.
With Ed.   Blundell  and Johnny
couldn't be anything but good. If
the enthusiasm at the Mine counts
for anything the show will be even
better than last year.

BEATTY MEETS SCOUTS
Honesty, courage and modesty
are the cardinal virtues that
make tor success and they should
be the Ideal of every Canadian
tray, said E. W. Beatty, chairman
and president of the Canadian
Pacific Railway, ln addressing
the Montreal District Scout
Council at their headquarters ln
that city recently. Mr. Beatty was
speaking in his capacity as president of the Canadian General
Council of the Boy Scouts' Association and at a function at
which he  had   been presented
with a copy of the new Scout
song book, "Songs for Canadian
Boys." The appeal of this book
is to all classes of boys and
girls, to adults and to the English-speaking world generally.
Some of the finest poems in the
language are included, making
the book an anthology in Itself.
The songs include those common
to the Empire, songs of Canada, England, Scotland, Ireland,
Wales, the United States, French-
Canada, France, sea songs, sea
chanties, scouting and marching
songs, choruses and miscellane
ous songs. The French-Canadian
song group have scholarly English translations hy J. Murray
Gibbon. It is a book that would
adorn the shelves of any library.
Mr, Beatty made a complete

Flowers are among the assets of the Canadian Pacific
Hallway. It is the policy of the Company to
establish permanent flower gardens at every station
along the long line of track stretched across the continent
In the very early dars of the railroad the pioneers
were too busy attending to the task of opening up new
roads to give much attention to flowers, yet even back
ln the early days one of the C. P. R. employees (produced a few varieties of flower seeds dn his own plot
and distributed them amor&at his friends at some of
the stations with the object of starting flower gardens
along the line. This took place over 30 years ago,
and to-day the Company speni3 a considerable amount
producing and distributing seeds and shrubs of all
kinds to station agents along the lines. The Company
maintains a floral department with (headquarters al
(he Windsor Street Station in Montreal.
In carrying out this work a great number of trees,
seeds and perennial plants are used annually. Suitable trees such as ash, elm and maple, are supplied,
and shrubbery such as honey-suckle, lilac, barberra,
elder, spirea. welgelia and many other varieties together with a long list of ibed flowers. Vines are also
supplied to cover buildings and fences surrounding
stations. For this purpose Virginia creepers and
■apanese ivy are considered best
During the past thirty yoarg tho encouraging lnflu-
n it ini
ence of the C. P. R. gardens has materially assisted ln
the Inauguration of floral societies all over the country, many of the officials of the Company being members of these societies. It is pleasing to remember
that the work in connection vnith the gardens is credited directly to the agents and employees of the station, for it is carried out mostly in their own time,
through their enthusiasm in beautifying the stations
of which they are in charge. The C. P. R. recognizes
this effort and much Interest is aroused by the annual
competitions on both eastern and western lines of the
Company for the finest station gardens. Extensive
layouts do not enter into the contest but the gardens
that have shown the most improvement during the
year are the ones that carry off the honors. Representatives from the floral department tour the lines
each year, sizing up the gardens and deciding the
winner. Substantial money prizes are awarded eaoh
year.
The floral department of the Canadian Pacifio Is
constantly in touch with horticultural Institutions, Including agricultural colleges and societies, so that ao
stone is left unturned to keep up to the very latest
standard.

Takes Involuntary Plunge In
Granby Bay

evening tempted a party of local
folk to take a boat ride. Everyone
was in gay holiday attire and happy mood. A bulky package bespoke a supply of bodily refreshment. Down the long ladder to
the float went the party, and all
went well until Mr. A. H. Stewart

"trod on a stair that was'nt there"
and plumped into the slimy water,
it being low tide. Willing hands
fished him out, and Mr. Stewart
proceeded to his quarters to change
his despoiled garments.
