This Set consists of twenty volumes, and also contains an account
of the life of the Novelist. We
wish you every sucoess and all happiness in your new homein Allenby,
and feel sure that your influence
there will always be felt in the
Anyox Sport
News
The Miners were again triumphant against the Smelter on
Tuesday and now have a sufficient
lead to warrant them comfortable
riding for the remainder of the
Season. Tuesday's game was very
disappointing to the Smelter Rooters as they expeoted to again get
into the winning column. Fortin
their new pitcher works very nice
in the box and although hit freely
gives promise of doing wonders ere
the season ends. The game was
full of sensational fielding with
honors due J. Ferguson of the
Mine, who played Short Stop, four
times he knooked down sure hits
when the Smelter had men ok
bases, The Smelter made 11 hits
to the Mine's 10 but poor, base running op the part of the Gas-Eaters
robbed them of any possible chance
of victory. . Anderson, Fortin
Mealey, Cecil and Ferguson polled
out some nice hits.
, The Intermediate All-Stars are
leaving for Rupert on Sunday to
play, the Seniors of that city.
Althougbuthey. have not definitely-
decided on their line-up, you may
rest assured it will be the strongest
available. Frank Hueggle is man
ager and is putting lots of pep into
the bunch. Wednesday they
practiced with the. All-Stars Seniors and both teams had a good
work-out.
The1 All-Stars picked to play
Ketchikan had another work-out
Wednesday and are sure rounding
into shape. It's a very hard proposition to fill the in-field as every
pos'ition is keenly contested. The
outfield is a fight between Stuart,
Downs, Anderson, and Campbell,
four would be hard to beat, Green"
well and Cody are chosen as catchers and should give a good
account of themselves. This is the
best team Anyox has ever fielded
in the last five years, and ou Saturday June 30th. just watch the
boys go.
Chapman's Cricket Team seems
to have sunk into oblivion, but
another littje paragraph wouldn't
do us any harm. It seems that
several of his stars have joined the
local ball teams, amongst them Fred
Whittaker. Whittaker olaims that
cricket is too strenuous. Thursday
he Stubbed his'toe oh the new pitch
tearing the cocoanut matting, this
caused Captain Chapman to give
him his release, and eVer since Fred
has been knocking Ye Olde Game,
cause of education."
Mrs, Hoffman suitably replied
and the audience joiued'in singing
"For she's a jolly good fellow".
Refreshments under the supervision of Mrs. Mcknight,» ably
assisted by Mesdames Harripgton,
Cloke and Selfe, were dispensed
throughout the evening, which
was brought to a close with an
enjoyable dance.
Alice Arm Liquor Store
Opened Yesterday
The Alice Arm Liquor Store
opened for business yesterday
morning with Mr. C. Hutchison
the official dispenser of the bottled
happiness in. charge. A large stock
of goods arrived on Monday's boat,
and these adorned the shelves

one's to gaze upon. The store has
been excellently fixed up, there
being lots of rooni in the front
store, and also ample storage space
in the rear for unpacking etc, Living rooms have also been provided
upstaits for Mr. Hutchison. A
good steady business was done
throughout the tlay yesterday.

The.sudden death oocurrecl on
Wednesday evening, at Anyox, of
Mr. Robert Lindsay. Deceased
with a number of friends had walked to the New Dam, and on their

The Herald's
Second Birthday
The Herald this week commences the third year of its existence.
Two years ago after receiving all
kinds of advice for and against, we
decided that this district could
support a weekly newspaper, and
our predictions have been proven.
The last two years have been an
up-hill fight. Business has not improved as quickly as we anticipated,
but'we are still here, and the prospects for the future are gradually
growing brighter. We have endeavored to give our readers a
good, newsy, local paper, and in
this we think we have succeeded.
We wish to thank all our subscribers and advertisers for their
patronage in the past, and can
assure them that just as soon as
conditions Warrant, that the Herald
will be enlarged, and new features
added, and in the absence of unfair
competition we expect to continue
publishing as long as a mining
property is operating in the district. We wish to remind all
those who subscribed to the
Herald at its inception that subscriptions are again due.
at Stewart if it is not possible to
have it at Alice Arm. It is a fact
not generally known that engineers
working for the C. P. R. surveyed
a route at Alice Arm from tide
water to the interior a few years
ago, so it is possible that Alice Arm
may become the terminus if the
road is ever built. There will be
no need of a tunnel at the head of
the Kitsault River to cross the
divide into the interior, a low pass
being obtainable. The harbor is
one of the finest in the world, free
from wind, and capable of anchoring the entire British navy. Every
accessible harbor in the north will
probably be surveyed throughly
before a terminus is decided on,
and Alice Arm has a first-rate
chance of securing the prize,   >
The Copper
Market
Peace River
Railway Terminus
The Portland Canal News of
Stewart published a strong editorial showing the advantages to be
obtainable by the C. P. R. in
making Stewart the Pacific terminus of the Peace River Railway.
While no official word has been
given by the C. P. R. regarding
the building of a railway from the
Peace River country to the coast,
there is no doubt that such a road
will be built sometime in the future,
and, it is probable that the terminus
will be north of Prince Rupert.
Railway companies have a habit
of changing their terminus on the
coast, before definitely deciding,
and the rule may hold good with
the proposed Peace River railway.
We would like to see the terminus

Oopper Buying Good With Price
15 Cents.
Domestic demand and buying are
good, but large fabricators have not
come into the market in earnest as yet.
It is expected that within the next ten
days larger users will begin to cover
qn third quarter requirements as they
are not believed to be covered much
beyond the middle of July. /
Foreign demand is good and good
sales are being-made to France,, Germany and England. Continued rise
in price both of standard and electrolytic copper have encouraged domestic
producers greatly and it is probable
that price will be advanced abroad.
At present only about two agencies
are still willing to sell at 15 cents delivered. It is not improbable that
with European prices advancing and
buying orders coming in fair volume
domestic price will be advanced to 16
1-8 cents delivered, Wednesday.
Price of Electrolytic copper for domestic shipment is 15 cents a. pound
delivered to end of August with most
producers unwilling to sell at that
price. Price of Lake copper is 15 1-8
cen.ts. Price aside ship New York is
15.10 cents. Prices for European destination asked by American producers
vary between 15.30 and 15.35 cents c. i,

Alice Arm Notes
Continued from page 1.
Miss Verna Wilson leaves today
for Anyox, where she will spend a
week's holiday.
■Miss. Doris Griegg of Anyox
arrived on Tuesday to spend a few
days in town.
The tug boat McCulloch, of the
Big Bay Lumber Co. Georgetown
was in port on Wednesday, in order to tow the boom of logs of the
Alioe Arm Freighting Co. to
Georgetown. These logs were out
and boomed last winter, and there
is approximately 250,000 feet of
lumber in the boom.
The Power pf Suggestion
A new device for saving passenger
trouble has been adopted by the Din-
ing-Car Service of the Canadian
National Railways. Throughout the
coaches on all trains to which Dining
and Cafe Cars are attached, little dodgers are now distributed before each
meal, with several suggestions for
a suitable combination of dishes.
These dodgers are printed in both
English and French. • This gives the
patron ofthe Dining-Car a little time
to decide upon what he will order
later, and eliminates the tiresome
necessity of studying a large menu-
card. If the traveller is accustomed
to set a limit of price upon his meals,
there is no need whatever to exceed it.
The prices for a complete menu for
Breakfast, Dinner and Supper are
most moderate, ranging from 35 cents
to $1.25. Having made his choice
according to pocket-book and appetite,
upon entering the Dining-Car, the
traveller will find himself served as
quietly and satisfactorily as he would
be in any well-appointed home.

The secret of
good beer lies
in purity—
That's why Cascade Beer^has for 35 years
been British Columbia's favorite health
beverage. No expense has been spared to
ensure purity. It has cofct a million dollars to build a plant to accomplish this.
But after testing Cascade Beer, you agree
that it has been worth it.

Sanitary conditions and Safety
First methods are brought' to the
notice of Anyox families at all
times. We wonder if some people
realize what it means to let their
dogs wander around the Anyox
Store in the manner in which they
do. The staff of the, different departments are keen on keeping
their displays in a first'class condition.   Why not help tjiem out.?
The Aiiyox Community League

all they can to. make the Dominion

One day when a farmer and his men

asked the vagrant if he wanted a job.
The man of leisure replied: "Sure what

"Dig potatoes."
The tramp started to walk away,
and with a look of disgust replied,
"Let the man who planted them dig
thein.   He knows where he put them.
A rich man, lying on his death bed,
