Monday evening, under the

The hall was comfortably filled and
the programme was of a i high
order.
The ohildrens' dances, arranged
by Mrs. F. M. Kelley were extremely pretty, aud met with a
hearty reoeption. They reflect
great oredit on tue children as well
their instructor.

Yard, was a masterpiece, and
makes Mr. Yard a dramatist of the
front rank. He was ably assisted
by Mi*. Geo. Warwick, as "Death,"
and the Misses Florence Kelly,
May Barclay, Doris Greig. and'
Frances Kelley, as the Fairies.
The Sketch, "With the Wits,"
specially written for the occasion
by Mr. F. M.' Kelley, was a new
departure on the stage at Anyox,

Menzies, and Miss Rowena Champion, who added another'laurel to
their crown, as exponents of the
dramatic art, before the local
footlights. •
The Reading, "Gunga Din," by
Mr. George Warwick, was well
received, as was also the one by
Miss Helen Cook, entitled,
"Caleb's" Courtship." ^
The violin solo, by Mr. George
Liddel, was up to his usual high
standard, and oalled for a well
merited encore. Master Arthur
Teabo also rendered a violin solo
very acceptably, whioh called for
an encore, *>' .
It is always a pleasure to listen
to Dr. Harper at the piano, and the
two items given by him were thoroughly enjoyed by everyone, and
brought forth thunderous applause
from the audience. j

Dunwell Mine Showing
Up Good Ore
Portland Canal News
There is something new every
day on the Dunwell. Just before
last week's paper came out, samples
containing free gold were brought
down, and this week some of the
finest specimens that a person
would want to look at, containing
free gold, native silver and argen-
tite, have come down every day.
Specimens, of course don't make
a mine, but the fact that free gold
and native silver are prominent at
a depth of .500 feet on the dip of
the vein, is at least significant.
Outside papers\received yesterday
•eveal the fine work of the chippy
reporter, such as the Vancouver
daily papers employ. They have
the gold in great nuggets, and
silver in slabs that must be peeled
off the rook. That, of course, is
all T.ommyrot.
The high-grade ore shoot is ten
feet wide in the north orosscut in
the No. 3. tunnel and five feet wide
in the south crosscut. The ore is
rich enough, and speculation is now
rife as to what No. 4 tunnel will
show up, since No. 3. is so much
better than No. 2, which established
the status of the Dunwell as a real

Big Salmon Pack Last Year
Victoria.—The salmon pack of
this province, according to figures,
issued by the board of trade, was
1,341,681 oases in 1923, or about
50,000 cases in pxcess of that of
1922. Unusually heavy runs in
the northern streams account for
the larger pack, canneries in the
north having been taxed to their
capacity to take care of the tish.
The total pack,will give the packers more than $10,000,000, if all the

Big Gold Production of
Northern Ontario
Hon. Charles, MoCrea, minister
of mines for the province of Ontario
declared iu a recent public address
at Windsor, that Northern Ontario
was the ''world's greatest treasure
box."   He estimated that the production pf precious metals in Northern   Ontario this year    would
total $25,000,000 iu value.    Referring to the niokle industry   Mr.
MoCrea said that 85 per oent. of
the nickle supply was being taken
out in   the  vioinity  of  Sudbury.
There was an inexaustible supply
of this mineral.    In 1911, when
mining at first began in Northern
Ontario, $48,000 worth of gold was
taken out.   Last year more than
$22,000,000 in gold was produced in
the district.

A NEW FISH YARN
Charged with keeping liquor for
sale Ed. Hall was reoently brought
before the magistrate at Hazelton.
Evidence brought out by the police was to the effect that Hall had
been receiving large consignments
of liquor every few days. Hall
swore that none of the stuff had
been offered for sale, but that he
had been a jolly host for two big
parties, one a salmon party and the
other a herring party, which naturally made the guests thirsty. This
the prosecution claimed, was drag-
ing a herring across the trail with
a vengeance, but in the evidence
submitted as to actual sale the
magistrate gave the defendant the
benefit of the doubt and dismissed
the case.
Gold Property at Terrace
To Be Developed
For the development of the
Portland group of claims on the
west side of Kalum lake, about
twenty miles from Terrace, thp
Kalum Lake Mines Limited has
been organized at Terrace. The
company comprises a number of the
business men of Terrace who know
the property, whi.ph.i8 described.as
one of the most promising prospects in all that district. ." The
Portland group was staked by C.
A. Smith two years ago and In the
development a three-foot ledge was
opened up which has given up very
high values in free milling gold. It
is the intention of the company to
undertake an extensive development programme immediately.
Russia Has Immense Iron
.Ore Deposits
The great mates of iron revealed
in Russia by its effect on the compass has been estimated by M. Saz-
areff, in a note to the Paris Academy of Science, to contain sixteen
times the quantity of this metal
existing in all other known deposits.
It occurs in two bauds, 125 miles
apart. Exploration has shown
ore at a depth of 500 feet, containing 40 per cent of iron, and at
greater depths the ore removed has
proven to have an increasing percentage of metal.
We can't all be millionaires,
Piling up dollars;
Can't all fill learned chairs;
Can't all be scholars.
No lamps o' magic now
Grant all our wishes;
Some have to push the plough,
Some do the dishes,
Can't all be beauties tall,
Rich, complimented;
Let's be what's best of all—
• Lets bo contented.
