Article on Toric Printed
By New York Mining
Journal
A well written article relative to
development work at the Toric
Mine appears iu the issue of the
New York Engineering and Mining Journal-Press of April 18'tll.
It is profusely illustrated, and
gives excellent views of the camp,
portal of the tunnel, gasoline
speeder on railway track, and the
compressor plant.
Following are extracts from the
article:
"A vein of gold-silver ore 65 feet
long, containing |- oz. of gold and
12 oz. silver per ton, is- being developed by the Consolidated Home-
stake Mining and Development Co.
at the Toric mine, in British Columbia, according to A. C. H. Gerhardi, who has just sailed from
New York to London. Mr. Gerhardi, who is managing director
of the company, makes his headquarters in British Columbia, but
is now going to London for the
purpose of financing the construction of a mill. He estimates the
reasonably assured ore reserve
to be not less than 256,000 tons
containing f 12 per ton in gold and
silver.
Flotation tests made in Seattle
have demonstrated the fact that
the ore cannot be tfreated effectively by flotation, because most of the
silver occurs in metallic form, and
the heavy flakes are not readily
floated. However, it is possible,
according to Mr. Gerhardi, to recover at least 90 per cent, of the
precious metal content by straight
amalgamation, aud his plan is to
erect a plant of this character
with 50 tons daily oapacity during
the coming summer."
New Ore Discovery
Made on Homeguard
Property Has Wonderful
Possibilities
An entirely new ore discovery
was recently made on the Home-
guard property, by Win. McFarlane, who brought samples of the
ore to town. The vein width of
the ore is about live feet, and it is
located only about 300 feet from
the Kitsault River. Samples of
the ore brought down are similar
to float found previously on the
property aiid which gave assay returns of $18.00 gold per ton. The
samples have been sent out for assaying for zinc, gold and silver.
Wm. McFarlane has taken in
supplies, and is driving a tunnel on
the ore vein, which is already in
eight feet.
The Homeguard is one of the
properties of the Alice Arm district
from which big things are expected.    Previous development   work
has proved  up a big tonnage of
copper ore, chiefly in the form of
gigantic boulders.   Ore was  dis-
! covered in place last fall, and this
I new strike of ore in place is con-
gsidered of considerable importance.
Alice Arm Government
Work Well Under Way
The new wing dam which is being built on the east bank of the
Kitsault to protect the pier of the
big bridge is almost completed,
states J, Wells, who has charge ol
government public work in the
district.
The new dam is 160 feet in
eugth and 10 feet wide. Three
Kindred feet of rock were required to fill the cribbing, and ten men
ire employed. Owing to the absence of any rock on the east bank,
it was necessary to transport rock
from the opposite side.
Four new bridges are under
construction on the Shore road
across the flats. The old Illiance
Biver trail bridge is being replaced
and the new bridge is nearing com
pletion. Five men are being em
ployed on this work.
The work of repairing the Shore
road is also nearing completion.
The road is being repaired from
the Government wharf to the logging camp of Eric Carlson, and
when finished will be in excellent
shape for vehicular traffic. Seven
men are now engaged on this
work.
-A crew of throe men are engaged in clearing and repairing the
trail to the Esperanza mine, and
some parts are being widened. The Public Works Department had twenty-five men on the
payroll during the week.
Although the appropriations
necessary for the repairing of the
Dolly Varden railway and extension of the Shore road to connect with the Illiance trail have
not yet arrived, it is expected that
it will not be much longer delayed.
In addition to the above work, repair work will be undertaken in
the upper Kitsault country and
the Illiance river trail. A bridge
across the Kitsault near the Home-
stake, and a trail to the Climax
property is also on this year's programme.

Vaccination
Against Smallpox
A Few Reasons Why It Is
Necessary
By Dr. D. R. Learoyd
At this time when smallpox is
epidemic in Vanoouver, and when
cases are also reported farther up
the coast, the necessity for vaccination in An>'ox and the district becomes apparent, for it is not unlikely that a case of smallpox may)
at any time, walk off the boat and
be discovered in our midst.
Quite apart from the fact that
epidemic smallpox paralyses trade
and industry, and is extremely
costly to any town or city or
minicipaiity (it costs more than
$150.00 to care for every case of
smallpox!) Physicians and health
officers everywhere, realize that
the disease is not becoming lighter
in form, but on the contrary, that
severe epidemics are, every year or
so, in unvaccinated areas, taking
their toll of lives.
Statistics are usually dull to
read, but a few illuminating records
of epidemics no later than the year
1924 reveal the following facts: In
our own country, in: Windsor, Ontario, there was an outbreak of
malignant smallpox between De
cember 12, 1923 and March 17
1924, and there resulted 67 cases
with 22 deaths i.e. a fatality rate of
33 %!! In Detroit, Michigan, in
1924, in the period from March 16
to June 1, there were 795 cases with
105 deaths, and another period of
this epidemic from April 13 to
August 31, 1924 resulted in 784
cases with 139 deaths!! Of these
deaths 12.3 resulted from the
terrible haemorrhagic or so-called
"black" smallpox. Illinois, Minnesota and other states also suffered
in 1923-24.
We are therefore forced to the
conclusion that the disease is not
becoming less virulent or less common, and it behooves us to take
what precaution we may to not
only stamp it out when it appears,
but to anticipate it. Children unfortunately, are the greatest sufferers, as a rule from smallpox, and
we owe it to them, to assist the
health authorities in controlling
the disease.
Figures and facts are at hand to
show the efficacy of vaccination
Let it suffice to say that the introduction under the skin (smallpox
is essentially a skin malady) of a
minute quantity of serum or
vaccine (which is prepared under
the most aseptic precautions from
a carefully-fed, disease free calf,)
will effectually prevent smallpox
from occuring in the vaccinated
individual.
If that individual has a successful "take," he will, in approximately a week s time, develop a raised

Mooseheart Legion Hold
Sale of Work
The women of the Mooseheart
Legion held a sale of Home Cooking and Fancy Work, last Monday
afternoon. The affair was very
successful in every way, due to the
combined efforts of all members.
The ladies iu charge of the stalls
were: Dry Goods and Fancy Work,
Mrs. Russell, Mrs. Persin and Mrs.
Wilson. Home Cooking: Mrs.
Peterson and Mrs. MacMillan.
Flower stall: Mrs. Cameron and
Mrs. B'oxley. Candy stall: Mrs.
Varnes.
Mrs. W. Dodd, Mrs. L. Dodd,
and Mrs. F. Cross served tea. A
very nice centre piece which was
donated by Mrs. J. Zitko was raffled, and won by Mr. W. R. Mur-
dock.
Alice Arm Logging
Mr. J. O. Trethewey, will log
about 2,000.000 feet timber on Lots
60 and 62 during the coming summer. Lot 62 is situated at Roundy
Creek, and it is possible that
stands of government timber will
be secured in this locality by Mr.
Trethewey in addition to the
timber on Lot 62. This would
bring the total up to around 4,000,
000 feet to be logged.
Mr. Trethewey states that a
market can be found for No. 1 and
2 spruce, but not for hemlock.
The timber, however, must be logged this year, as the sap part of
the log is deteriating, and the
sawmills are commencing to cut
down their scale on the sap.
Eric Carlson will shortly be iu
a position to commence logging.
Three million feet b.m. -has already
been towed south, No. 1 and 2
spruce going to Prince Rupert and
the balance to Ocaan Falls. He
has seven million feet still in the
booms. Mr. J. Taylor, arrived
last week from Ocean Falls to
■supervise the sorting of the logs,
uid has let a contract for this
A'ork to Joe Keith and Jean
Limuix. Mr. Taylor expects to
be here about six weeks.
Anyox Elks Hold Their
Third Annual At
Home
Last Wednesday evening was
the occasion of the Elks fifth anniversary and third Annual At
Home. A very pleasant evening
was spent at cards and dancing.
Cards were started at 8.15, only
whist being played, and continued
until 10 o'clock. Mrs. Chas. Gray
won the first Ladies' prize, and
Mr. Greig Thompson won the
first gents. Miss Annie Scott won
the Ladie's consolation and Mr.
James Ritchie, gents.
After cards, refreshments were
served in the Dugout, during
which a very pleasing musical programme was supplied. Brother
Bud Sheen rendered a very pleasing vocal solo, accompanied hy
Mrs. H. B. Chapma.li on the piano.
The second number also made a
big hit and was rendered by
Brother Buntain on the steel
guitar. Brother Mitohell finished
the programme with a vocal solo,
which proved quite as popular as
the preceding numbers.
When refreshments were over,
dancing was indulged in to music
rendered by the Elks' orchestra.
Messrs. Austin, piano; Waterman,
drums, and Armstrong, violin, supplied snappy musio for the occasion.
The guests of the Brother Bills
unanimously feel that a very
pleasant social evening was enjoyed by all present. The committee
in charge of the evening's programme were: Brothers Parmiter,
Robertson, Gibb, Hutchison and
Nickerson.

Post Office System Has
Huge Turnover
At tlit close of our last fiscal
year there were in operation
throughout Canada 12,370 Post
offices. ' During these twelve
months 205 new offices were
established, and 213 were closed,
due to the extention of rural mail
delivery routes, so that there was
a net increase of 82 offices.
The extention of the rural mail
delivery system was considerably
curtailed,, due to the necessity for
strict economy. However, at the
close of the year 210,392 boxes
were being served.
The gross revenue of the Post
Office Department for the year
was $35,051,907, of which $30,
618,795 were received from the
sale of postage stamps, post cards,
etc. . From newspaper publishers,
who paid in cash the postage on
their newspapers, were received
$1,352,800.
The Modern  Village
Blacksmith
Under an ad for gasoline
The village smithy stands;
He's agent for the Jinx machine
And several other brands;
He hasn't shod a horse for years,
For fear he'd soil his hands.
He wears a gold watch on his wrist,
A pearl pin in his tie;
His links are made of amethyst,
The finest he could buy.
There's not a thing the smithy wears
That doesn't please the eye.
Week in, week out, from morn till
night,
He sees the autos come,
With brakes that are   not   working
right
And axles on the bum,
With gas, repairs and grease and oil,
He makes a tidy sum.
He has a staff of skillful men
That number twenty-four,
Who toil from 6 a.m. until ten
And sometimes even more.
The smithy never does a stroke-
He thinks that work's a bore.
The   children   coming   home,   from
school
Look in at the open door,
And laugh to see some city fool set up
an awful roar
When called to pay some whopping
bill
The smithy has soaked him for.
He goes on Sunday to the kirk,
His mind quite clear from cares,
Because his men are hard at work
With punctures and repairs.
And if the weather's fine and warm
The smithy says grateful prayers.
Oiling— refilling— repairing,
Onward through life he goes,
And never once dispairing
So long as his income grows.
Each night the thought of someone
done
Augments his sweet repose.

The people of Alice Arm are
apparently not yet alive to the advantage gained by publicity. The
B. C. Chamber of Mines cannot
obtain ore samples for display, nor
can they obtain any information
regarding development in the camp,
There is an old adge, which says,
"Opportunity knocks but once."
If we do not take advantage of
the present Dominion wide boom
in mining we deserve to be exiled
in a backwater, while others are
marching to progress and prosperity-  '
Advertisements may not be
read, as the non-advertisers say,
but every time we make a mistake
in an advertisement, the ink doesn't get dry on the paper before we
hear about it. Yes, the advertisements are read. You read them
and the other fellow reads them
too.
Following are extracts from
Walker's weekly copper letter appearing in the Boston Commercial
dated March 7:
"Granby Consolidated is planning to start operatioits at the
Allenby mine and mill within a
lew months. Allenby is a porphyry deposit with ore averaging
about 1.8% copper. This property
shows 6,000,000 tons of developed
ore, besides which there are 2,000,
000 tons of probable ore according
to conservative estimate. The
property is equipped with a concentrator having capacity of 2,000
tons of ore daily, thus giving
Allenby a yearly production of
about 20,000,000 pounds of copper.
Resources of Allenby have hardly
been scatched as yet, there having
been withdrawn for experimental
treatment only a few thousand
tons of ore. In reality it is stated
there are good possibilities that the
Allenby property contains ore tonnage far greater in extent than the
figures given above."

Vaccination
Against Smallpox
A Few Reasons Why
Necessary
It Is

Continued from Page 1
papule on "the skin. This papule
is usually surrounded by a red
area of one inch to one and a half
inches in diameter, and it eventually becomes a small pustule, not
as uncomfortable as a boil of the
same size. There may be with
the above, slight soreness in the
arm and slight headache. No
fatalities occur from vaccination as
can be realized when one learns
that since 1917 the medical officers
of the U. S. Navy have vaccinated about J of a million persons
without a death; and those of the
U. S. Army have in that same
period vaccinated b\ million persons with only one death, and this
man died of pneumonia, an intercurrent disease.
It would appear that much of
the objection to vaccination on the
part of a few people arises from
the mistaken idea they have, of
the vaccine used, its method of
preparation, and possibly more
than all, from the practice employed years ago, from arm
to arm, when undoubtedly,
blood diseases were communicated. Carelessness in the care of
the arm after vaccination, also resulted often in serious infections, but
these are things of the past, and
vaccination has become a safe,
sane and logical method of dealing
with the menace of smallpox.
Your physicians believe absolutely in the efficacy of vaccination.
They employ it in their own
families,- and they look to the parents and teachers to assist them in
the work of protecting the children, as well as all adults who
have not recently been vaccinated.
A word about the care of the
arm. The day of large, unsightly
scars is gone, but a reasonable care
of the vaccination wound is necessary. Avoid tight coverings,
shields, or other dressing, because
they kind to macerate the tissues
during the "'take." Proceed with
the daily bathing and washing,
but try to avoid breaking the
crust over the wound. If the
vesicle pustule or crust breaks aud
the wound becomes open, daily
moist dressings of some antiseptic
may be necessary, but no such
dressing should be left on more
than 24 hours, and no such dressing need be applied if Nature's
natural protection is intact. If
you are not near a doctor moist
boracic compresses are the best to
use.
In conclusion it may be said that
a child should be vaccinated by the
time it has reached the age of (J
months, and the operation should
be repeated at about 6 years of
age and whenever an epidemic of
smallpox is present. Little has
been mentioned in this article
about the success of vaccination
against the plague of smallpox, but
vaccination would not be compulsory as it is in many countries,
in many states of the United
States, and in many provinces of
Canada, were it not a sure and
safe protection. It is one of the
most useful discoveries that medical research snd medical science
have produced.
