both old and prospective members,
After the singing of "0 Canada."
reports of officers were given and
business matters discussed. Mr.
Southam, convenor of programme
committee, presented an attractive
plan for the year's work, having
made arrangements whereby various prominent men of Anyox,
Prince Rupert and outsid| points
will address the Association. Among
those mentioned were: Bishop Du
Vemet and principal Brady of
Prinoe Rupert, Mr. Charlesworth
of Victoria and Dr. Harper, Mr.
Hafner and Mr. Eve of Anyox; of
whom the last mentioned expect to
arrange for a radio night when the
members will have the privilege of
hearing something worth while
from afar.
Mr. Robertson, who has carefully
studied the merits of various models

machines of inestimable value in
their work aud Anyox through the
efforts of her school board and P.

Miss Tassie, who. spares neither
time nor strength where the children of Anyox are concerned briefly
addressed the gathering on matters
relating to the health of the pupils'.
Mr. Manzer, Principal of thejhigh
school, read an interesting and
helpful paper on what the sohool

originally delivered by Miss Ander.
son of south Vancouver at a Parent
Teaoher Federation meeting. ' It
revealed a keenly sympathetic
understanding of ohildren on their
needs.. Parents were counselled to
keep their little one's, boys and
girls, longer, by a return to simplicity of life. It is not fitting to
let a child experience so much of
the world that We oan no longer
• think of him, at the age of twenty-
one, as on the threshold of a treasure-house of new and wondrous
things. The overwhelming importance of the Physical was stressed;
Children require REST. In fact a
"get to bed early campaign" would
not be without point. Attention
should be paid, too, to manners; old
fashioned courtesy is desirable, and
children at home should be taught
to respect the right things.
Several parents endorsed the
ideas expeessed. Mr. McAllister,
in lighter vein, was glad to find
that the teaoher asked for co-operation and sympathy merely, and
did not expeot friend parent at
home to teaob all' lessons to be
recited next day to a pedagogue
leading a life of glorious idleness.

Homestake Tunnel Cuts
Through Twenty-Three
Feet of Ore
Work at the Homestake Mine is
proceeding Satisfactorily, both
underground and outside. The
camp buildings, are now completed.
The buildings were, constructed
by contract by J. Fiva, and comprise bunk-house, dining room and
kitchen, blacksmith shop and a
building for the compressor plant.
The buildings are constructed of
logs and will provide good winter
quarters for the men,
The mine is looking good under
development work. The No. 1
tunnel has been driven a distance
of 190 feet aud has cut through an
ore ledge 23 feet wide. The whole
23 feet is good looking ore, but the
precise value oan not be determined
until samples have been assayed.
The samples have already been sent
out for assaying. The depth ofthe
tunnel where ore was encountered
is 160 feet from the surface. Work
on the No. 3 tunnel, has commenced, and will strike the ore at a
much greater depth than was the
case of the No. 1. Work on this
tunnel is being done by contract by
J. Fiva and the brothers Johnson.
The Alioe Arm Freighting Co-
have, twenty tons of supplies at.
Trout Creek including the compressor plant. This will go forward
to "the. mine as soon as the
trail is put into shape for the hauling of go-devils. The compressor
will be installed directly on arrival
and this will greatly expediate
dovelopment work at the mine.

Arm Wing Dam
Work of extending the wing dam
above the town is well under way.
Eleven men are employed under
the supervision of Mr. J. Wells and
the work will take about two
months to complete. The present
dam will not be raised, but work
will be concentrated on extending
the present structure so as to afford
protection for the pier of the bridge
on the west bank of the Kitsault
This work will also stop the river
from cutting through the unprotected space now existing between the
present dam and the main stream
of the Kitsault river, a protection
that was greatly needed.
Up to the time of going to press
no word has been received as to
when the construction of the bridge
will be commenced, but it is probable that work will be started as
soon as the dam is completed and
perhaps before.
Big Boom of Logs Ready
For Shipment
A big boom of logs comprising
26 sections is now ready at F.
Miller's logging oamp, for shipment
to the Big Bay Lumber Co. at
Georgetown and a tug boat is
["expected at any time to tow out
the boom.
Logging operations at the camp
are still proceeding and work on
making another boom will be
undertaken as soon as' the present
one leaves.
Sixteen men are now working at
the camp.- The high lead system
of hauling the logs from the woods
is being used, and equipment consists of one yarder and one loading engine. Work of falling timber is also being carried on across
the bay opposite the oamp, this
work being done by contract.

Northern Polytechnic
ltis indeed, disappointing, that
the classes of the Northern Polytechnic Institute, scheduled to
commence in Alice Arm, on
October 8th. has, so far, failed to
start. Failure of procuring suitable
instructors and failure of the public
to make an effort to support the
classes, are the chief causes why
the classes have not commenced.
It is possible, however, that some
classes may yet be arranged, but
valuable time is being lost, and. it
is possible, that should the scheme
prove to be a fizzle this year, that
the management will in future, not
bother to go to the trouble of
trying to organize classes in Alice
Arm, and the people of the
larger centres will be in a position
to improve their education, an
advantage that the dwellers of the
small town will not possess,
Alice Arm
Social League
Now that the Alice Arm Social
League has been formed, it is for
everyone to help along the good
work, and this can be done in
various ways, namely, by taking an
active part in the different entertainments; by giving ypur time
willipgly when necessity arises for
a few minutes work, and by being
a booster at all times. If we don't
want classes for. our education,
then let us spend some of our
evenings in healthy recreation.
The officers of the League will do
their best to provide entertainment,
and with the support of the people
of the town, failure is impossible.
Operation of the
Dolly Varden
The reported option on the
Dolly Varden, by New York capitalists published by us last week,
was gratifying news. It shows
that the•> operation of the Dolly
Varden is a live issue, and sooner
or later, the'property will be put
into commission. It also shows
that the owners do not intend to
let the plant go to ruin, and so lose
one of their most valuable assi
The plant as it stands today is in
fairly good shape, and whoever
operates the mine will not bi
required to spend large sums of
money on transportation, power
and buildings. Those who know
the, Dolly Varden and Wolf and
the properties adjacent, are not
worrying over the chances of their
ever being developed, The truth
is, that there is too much ore in
sight in the upper Kitsault country
for it to lie idle indefinitely.
Almost every mining camp starts
with a hetic boom. Then comes
the reaction, with a period of
idleness. After that comes the
re-birth, and a start is again made,
in which the operators profit by
the mistakes of their predecessors.
Owners of prospects "come back
to earth", in regard to price, and
are ready tn talk business, and if
the camp is a good one, the
foundation of a permanent industry is laid, and those who stayed
with the camp through thick and
thin are the one's who win.
School Text Books To Be
An announcement made by Hon.
J. D. McLean, provincial secretary, is
to the effect that following the conference of Deputy ministers of Education
of. the four western provinces, the
curricula of the public schools will be
revized. Other important changes
calculated to improve thepublicschools
system, including longer training periods for teachers, also are expected to
result from the conference.
The text books of geography, gram-
mer, arithmetic, and spelling will be
revised and it is expected that each
province may manufacture its own
text-books.     ) \
Taken all in all the revisions in the
schools system are the result of artong
period of investigation and a material
improvement in general educational
methods is anticipated.

You can rave, you Isaac Waltons, of the glories of the stream,
Of the sunshine of existence you afford me not a gleam;
The romance'of the brooklet I can never seem to get,
To me it's merely water wh,ioh is develish cold and wet,
If the poetry of motion lies in casting out a line,
I'll have prosaic movement in the portion that is mine, ,
For when gently on the water I essay the fly to oast, -
It lodges in my panties and remains there hard and fast;        :
And when from hide and clothing I at last have cut it fi*ee* .-'
And (last again,1 it always snags a rock or bush or tree.
You embryo Kit Oarsonsi with, your trophies of the 'chase,
Ienvy not your prowess* and 1 covet not your place,      . ..'.--, ,-,„    ,
This plunging into snowdrifts, and hiking up a hill,
Is not an occupation that affords me any thrill;
I'm tired of shooting shotguns with a sixteen ton recoil,
And applying to my bruises Doc Whelan's limuhent and oil,      ,
I'd rather let the mallard duck remain at large and free,    .  -
Than have a cockeyed shot gun make a total wreck of mi.     ,;
I'd rather let the grizzly bear forever snort and sniff,
Than break my neck through falling down; some coast range mountain cliff.
Stand up, you gas boat tourists, and wave your arms aiid shout, ,
And tell about the rapture of a life of camping out.
My memory renvinds hie of the sleepless nights I've spent,
Congealing in the rain-drops trickling through a leaky tent.
No longing tor the great outdoors with great insistent tugs,
Instead I see mosquitoes and a million other bugs.   '" I *
I see dirt and leaves and gravel in the'greasy frying pahs,
And mixed up in the grub box is pickles, hams and jams, ,
Tlie camp-fire which contributes so much burning, blistering heat,
With its smoke which chokes and strangles when you attempt to eat.
You take the open spaces, and give me a house instead,
You sleep ot boughs and boulders, but give me a standard bed.
Go plunge into the mountain stream, and give your skin a thrill,
But foi* me turn on the faucets in the bathtub, if you will.
Go eat your beans and bacon in tho rain and snow and muqk,
If I can reach a table I will feel that I'm in luck.'
You are welcome to the victuals that are interspersed with ants,
With wifey's kitchen products I will gladly (fake a chance.
You hunters and you anglers, here's to you as you may roam,
The more I see of camp-life the more I think of home. • •'

from abandonment of passive resistance as well as to see what is to be
the French attitude. Continuance of
the high rate of recent foreign buying
can not be expected and a temporary

In fact foreign demand has been so
strong for wire bars during the last
two months that it is necessary to
wait to'fill orders upon 136-pound
wire bars, which' are the standard
weights of wire bars for foreign shipment. This is the first time that this
has occurred in ten years, and indicates
that with stocks bf refined exhausted,

domestic shipments has practically
swamped the refineries so that with
