Following the playing of several
da»ice numbers the members of the

Their clever execution of an intricate dance, "Here Comes the Sun"

Broadway, Piccadilly and the
Champs des Elysees, won them
further applause and an encore.

A cornet solo was given by Mr.
E. Ross Oatman and this talented
musician drew well merited applause for the faultless rendition of
this soul-stirring solo.
And  then   came the parade of
mannequins   attired   in   the latest
feminine   creations    of    tailoring,

E. MOSS, Editor and Publisher.
During the past ten years the
Herald has given a large amount
of free publicity to every deserving
organization of the district, especially when they hold a social
affair in order to raise money, such
as dances, concerts, card parties,
etc. We are always glad to be
able to play our part in extending
a helping hand to all organizations,
and we hope that we shall be able
to continue to do so in the future.
It should be borne in mind, however, that free publicity does not
increase the revenue of the newspaper. It does not help to pay
for paper and ink, light and fuel,
wages and taxes, neither does it
enable the proprietor to pay his
bills for the necessities of life.
Advertising is the life blood of a
newspaper. Withold it and you
are assisting in the strangulation of
your local newspaper. Any public
affair for which an admission fee is
being charged, should be worth
advertising in the local newspaper.
One or two extra tickets sold pays
for a newspaper advertisement and
for this modest outlay you have an
opportunity of appealing to almost
the entire population of Anyox and
Alice Arm and numerous outside
points. We would appreciate it,
if, when you are holding a public
social affair you would get in touch
with us. We will gladly give you
advertising rates.

The petty thieves of Alice Arm
are the worst vermin left in the
camp. Taking the people as a
whole no frontier camp ever had a
more generous lot, and I am proud
to be one of the lot. There is,
however, someone in hiding who
should and would not be tolerated
if he or they were once exposed.
Their shadow leaves an impression.

When this creamery was operated

Mr. Valentine was employed as the

them he started in business for
himself at Prince Rupert. The
patrons of the Vanderhoof Creamery are pleased to see him return,
as he has the confidence of the

Premier Co.  Interested   In
Eastern Mine
Toronto—Premier Gold Mining
Company has taken a substantial
interest in Toburn Gold Mines
Ltd., a new company formed to
take over an option on the Tough
Oakes-Bumside Mines at Kirkland
Lake from the Bunker Hill Exten
sion Mines. The latter company
acquired an option on the property
from English bondholders of
Tougli-OakesBtirnside. The property was operated from 1912
until 19^8 and from 1922 until
1928 when it was closed down.
Total gold recoveries amounted to
nearly |3,000,000. Bondholders
took over the property in 1929 in
default of interest payments. Last
year the Bunker Hill Extension
Mines secured an option and did
considerable exploration work.

Canadians Are Returning
Ottawa, February 14: Special to
the Herald). During the first ten
months of last year there was an
exodus of Canadians from the
United States—men and women
returning home to their own land.
The figures show that during the
period Canada received 2,897 more
persons from the United States
I than had entered, from Canada.
A few of these were United States
emigrants but mainly the figures
comprised those returning to their
former homes.

Canadian . grain trade with the
Orient from B. C. Ports showed a

India Still Flooding   Silver
With silver down to 26^ cents,
it must be admitted that the disabilities of the Far East in foreign
trade have.increased. India is still
throwing silver on the groaning
world market. If that source of
selling could be plugged the price
of silver would have some chance
of recovery, but the selling is
merciless in its persistency.—Financial News.
The characteristic sound of
Chicago, as recorded by an instrument placed at a great height above
the street levet, is described as
resembling the hum of a motor
running without engine knocks.
But surely there is occasionally a
suggestion of backfiring?—Punch.
. The present surplus of commodities is a favorite topic of discus
sion, but it is not the first ever
known. Let us glance at some
easily available records. In 1918
Australia had sufficient old wheat
on hand, over 200 million bushels,
to provide without further planting
for her own requirement for the
next five years In May, 1921, the
stocks of refined copper in North
and South America were about
four times larger than the average
holdings, and slightly in excess of
those reported on December 1st, j
1930. The present supply of re
fined zinc in the United States
exceeds the peak in the preceding
business depression, that held in
August. 1921, amounting to 92,000
short tons, but there were then in
addition large government supplies of metals, as well as many
other commodities purchased as
war materials which acted at that
time as a heavy drag on nearly all
markets. All these surpluses disappeared in time.
