Novelties Galore Anyox
Big Armistice
Dance
Death Claims 2 Anyox
Residents During
Week
The ex-service men of Anyox
promised the dancing public something new in the way of novelties at
the Armistice Dance. They certainly fulfilled their promise and the
surprises far exceeded the expectations of every one of the vast concourse who gathered at the
Gymnasium on Wednesday evening.
Right from the start, before the
dancers entered the hall, it was
apparent that everybody was out
for fun and frolic. Private G. Clark
was on guard between two rows of
sand bags, leading to the approach
to the dressing stations, which was
within the gas area.
The hall was crowded with dancers
and the floor was taxed to the limit.
In the centre of the floor was a
housing which, represented Moquet
Farm of 1916, of Somme fame. In
this structure, the Mine 'Melodians
were stationed who produced be-
• witching music, that made one
rearin' to.go all the time.
The hall was elaborately decorated
with flags and red, white and blue
streamers draped from ceiling. At
the ends of the hall were emblematic
shields upon which were the names
of the battles which the the Canadian
Expeditionary forces topic a prominent part, such as: Vimy Ridge,
Passchendale, Somme, Ypres, Hill
70, Givenchy, St. Miehel Salient,
and our neighbors across the border
were honored with Chateau Thiery.
One of the outstanding features
of the dance was the French Estam-
inet which was stationed on the
gallery, a la Cafeteria style, where
an abundance of good things was
provided. The gallery was beautifully decorated and provided with
individual chairs and tables. Those
captivating demoiselles who served
as waitresses, put things over in
.fine style.   Those who   waited on
I the guests were: Misses Winnie
/Bruce; Bernice Salter, Betty Sel-
wood, Sylvia Armstrong, Susie
^Hamilton, Dolly Wilson, Edith
[■Johnson and Nancy Fraser.
Pt. A. Sinclair was detailed off to
!fserve as Military Policeman, also
.as Director of Ceremonies. A
searchlight dance was put on at
|10.30 p.m. i
The Bluebird Cafe were caterers
(in providing the salads, and Baker
Robertson provided the cakes and
rolls.
The Dance' Committee wish to
(thank Mrs. W. F. Eve and- her
daughter Bubbles, for their kind
.assistance with the supper; also P.
Ryan for the help he gave, in
decorating the Hall.
The happy   event   came   to   a
I Close at 2.30 p.m. at which time
everybody was dead tired but happy.
The dance committee of the Any-
!ox Service Association, have been,
since the dance, the recipients of a
host of congratulations, which they
heartily deserve., They provided
something original, something attractive, Which had a snap to it. The
Anyox Service members as fighters
knd entertainers are unexcelled,
The hand of death reached out
and took two Anyox residents
during the week. Mr. Ed. Anderson of the Mine, one of the most
popular members of the community
passed away at the Anyox Hospital
on Tuesday. He leaves to mourn
his loss, a wife, two sons and a
daughter.
Deceased was 54 years of age,
and has been in the employ of the
Granby Co. at the mine since 1915.
Previous to coming to Anyox he was
employed at the Rocher De Boule
mine at Hazelton. He was also
engaged in the construction of the
Grand Trunk Pacific east of Prince
Rupert' • v
The news of his death comes as a
shock to his many friends and the
sympathy of the community is
extended to Mrs. Anderson and
Ifinjily in their sad bereavement.
| Jhe funeral of Mr. Anderson will
be held at the cemetery today.

ALICE ARM NOTES
Silver Rose Vein Gives
Good Values
The Silver Rose property situated
on the North-East Fork of the
Kitsault River, and which has been
developed recently by the owners
has the earmarks of being developed into a real good property.
It is owned by Messrs. Jack
Collins, Neil Forbes, Jimmy Flynn
and Fred Martinson, who this year
drove a number of open cuts across
a promising ore vein. ! A sample
taken from one of these cuts and
sent out for assaying has given
values of 14.4 per cent zinc, 6 per
cent copper, 1.8 ozs. silver and 20
cents in gold per ton. A total value
of $24.54 per ton.
The vein varies in width from 3)^
to 5)4 feet and has been traced on
the surface a distance of 400 feet.
It is the intention bf the owners to
drive a tunnel on the vein early next
summer. The ground at this point
is steep and a 'tunnel fifty feet in
length, will give a vertical depth on
the ore of one hundred feet.

Christmas is coming. Already
the stores are commencing somewhat timidly to display their
Christmas wares. The weeks will
soon roll by and old Santa Claus
will again be paying us a visit.
What delight this robust old gentleman with the red coat and white
flowing whiskers brings to the
excited children as he bursts into
room when the children's parties
are in progress. We wonder what
the old fellow has in store for our
juveniles this year. Will he be
bountiful or will he have to apologize
for a somewhat hurried visit. A
lot depends of course on the support he receives from the adults.
Already plans have been made for
the raising of funds for some of the
children's Christmas Trees in
Anyox, and Alice Arm will also
have a Christmas Tree ready for
Santa to hang his toys on. No one is
expected to give more than they
can easily afford. But if you are
approached for a donation remember that Christmas only comes once
a year, and in the general celebration we can not afford to forget the
children. Don't follow old
Scrooge's policy and be sorry when
it's almost too late.
Alberta Wheat Pouring Into
Prince Rupert
Up to last Thursday 925 cars of
wheat had arrived at the Priuce
Rupert elevator since .the grain
movement to this port started last
month. This amount to about
1,400,000 bushels which would
more than fill the elevator or, taking tlie 500.000 or so bushels that

Trail Smelter Increases Lead
and Zinc Output
The Consolidated Mining &
Smelting Co. of Canada has started
work on the construction of a new
80 ton per day unit to the zinc
department at the Trail smelter.
When completed this will bring the
rated capacity of the zinc department up t:i 280 tons of fine zinc
per day. It is expected that the
new 50-ton per disy addition to the
lead department, which wasstarted
early in the summer, will be put
into operation before the end of
October. Tlie company also is
doubling the capacity of its custom
concentrator at Trail. The milling
service, which was started more
than a year ago, has met with such
general approval from mine owners
in the Kootenays and beyond that
for some time past more ore has
been received than the mill was
able to handle. ,
Genial Milkman: "Looks like
rain, Mrs. Crabb,"
Lady of tlie house: "Yes, it
usually does, but it has a faint
flavor of milk."
"If you will produce the cider,
I will see it is placed on sale in the
government liquor stores or else
there will be a new liquor control
board," said Premier Oliver in an
address to the Peuticton Board of
Trade in which he advocated the
manufacture of cider from culled
apples grown in the Okanagan, for
which at present there was no
market.

Mining Copper in Butte at
Over 3000 Feet Depth
The Butte & Superior Mining
Co., Butte, Mont., has opened iu a
crosscut on the 3,400 level, the
deepest in the mine, a body of copper ore 17 feet. wide. This ore is
in the Rainbow lode and is the first
copper ore cut in Bntte & Superior
ground in the Rainbow lode proper
that has been of commercial promise. The find was not unexpected,
as the ore body was indicated by
developments on levels above, but
on the upper levels the ore carried
zinc instead of copper. The silver
remains unchanged. Its grade in
oopper is about the same as in the
copper ore at the west end of the
property, which oocurs in an
entirely different system of veins.
. A record for long distance com'
inuuication was set up by the
Prinoe Rupert wireless station a
few days, ago when the station
spoke to Apea, a British station in

BEERS, such as are made by the Amalgamated
Breweries of British Columbia and distributed to
the people by the bottle at the Government stores
and by the glass in Licensed Premises, contain only

It was a night of unbounded
merriment for the men of the allied
armies, and they all threw themselves wholeheartedly into the
evening's celebration. Old time
war songs and choruses, that were
sung on the tired marches and

fronts were thrown on the air in
gleeful abandon.
Among the choruses sang were:
"The Reason Why," "Alouette,"
"Long Long Trail," "Pack up
your Troubles," "Take me back to
dear old Blighty," "All the nice
girls love a sailor," "I want to be
in Blighty," "I want to go home,"
"Sing me to sleep," (trench version) "Keep your Head Down,"
and many others.

arrangements were:
