Successful Season For
Basketball Appears
With the approach of the opening
night in the Gym. the basketball
teams are slowly working into shape
and to date it looks like a more
even league this winter than last.
In the Senior A league the Trojans will again take the floor with
the original lineup. The addition
of Alex. McDonald, who was forced
out of play through an injury last
year, should make a great improvement in the Trojans' guard line.
Alex plays a consistently good game
and should prove a steadying influence in this team of young veterans.
The Trojans came close to the
championship last year and will undoubtedly be in at the finish this
season. They will have strong
competition however, in the Concentrator squad. This team is
practically a new line up and anything can be expected from them.
With Stewart Steele, Johnny Gillies,
Ivor Davis and Clarence Dresser

guard line this, team should show
the fans some real ball. A few

With a strong Mine team to complete the league, basketball will
again provide enjoyment for many
during the winter months.
In the B league, the teams are
much the same as last year. The
Pirates however, have been broken
up and the league will consist of
four teams, Mine, Mechanics, Warriors and Rovers.
The Mechanics have benefited
considerably by the acquisition of
Tommy Scott. Tommy, who was
high scorer in the B league last

the Mechanics team. With a good

Search For Most Perfect
Canadian Maple Leaf
Canadians are maple leaf minded.
Magnificent autumn leaves, tinted
with all the flaming colors of early
fall are being received in ever increasing numbers, for judging in
the nation-wide competition being
conducted by the Canadian National and Canadian Pacific Railways.
This year's competition for the
most beautiful maple leaf, is going
to be exceptionally keen, according
to reports from the railway officials
in charge. Hundreds of beautiful
leaves have already been received
from appreciative nature lovers in
the provinces of Nova Scotia, New
Brunswick, Quebec and Ontario,
while leaves from the prairie provinces and British Columbia are beginning to put in an appearance.
More than 10,000 leaves were received in first competition held last
fall, and this year present indications lead those concerned to the
opinion that the total will be far
more than twice that number.
With the swooping ridges of
maple trees already showing splendid vistas of colour, and with an
ever increasing number of people
making it a point of enjoying fall
outings in the countryside, those
in charge are making preparations
for a deluge of specimens from now
on until the competition closes on
October 15th. when judges from
the Royal Canadian Academy will
commence their exacting task, The
first prize for the most beautiful
leaf in all Canada will be $50., the
second prize $20., and the third
prize $10. The first prize for the
largest leaf is $15, and the second
prize $5.

Wood For Heating Purposes
Still Popular In Canada
In spite of the preference for coal
and other fuels for heating purposes
a large amount of wood is still so
used in Canada. The quantity used
in normal years is estimated by the
Forest Service, Department of the
Interior, at 913 million cubic feet,
or 9,611,223 cords. Fuel wood
formed about thirty per cent of the
total amount of wood cut in the
Dominion for all purposes. During
the past two or three years there
has been a large increase in the
amount of wood used for fuel.
All good conversation, manners
and action come from a spontaneity
which forgets usages and makes

Production At Premier
Continues High
Figures released at Ottawa show
recovery at Premier Gold Mine,
Portland Canal, from 91,850 tons
milled in first half 1934, was 21,696
ozs. gold and 357,730 ozs. silver.
Estimated value of output was
$758,794, approximately $8.26 per
ton. Comparison with the results
for 1933 indicate that advance in
price of gold and silver have offset
further decline in output of these
metals per ton of ore treated. Indications ate that value of 1934
production from Premier mine will
approximate that of 1933. (For
comparative purposes in entire year
1933 company milled 182,421 tons,
producing 51,863 ozs. gold and 1,-
145,043 ozs. silver.)
These figures have reference only
to Premier Mine and do not include

taken the matter into consideration and a meeting of intermediate
players is scheduled for Tuesday
