Celebrated Tlieir Silver
Wedding March 1st.
On March 1st, at their residence in Anyox, Mr. and Mrs.
William Findlay Barclay celebrated
the anniversary of their silver wedding, only the members of their own
family being present.
Mr. and Mrs Barclay were married at Thorniebank, near Glasgow,
Scotland, on March 1st., 1907.
There are six children: Ernest,
Jack, Stuart, May, Bessie, and
Lillian. Jack, who has been in
Toronto for almost three years, is
progressing well with his studies in
engineering and music.
Mr. and Mrs. Barclay moved to
Canada about two years after their
marriage, being in Toronto for ten
years, in Copper Cliff and Sudbury
for five years, and in Anyox since
that time.
They take a keen interest in
everything affecting the welfare
of the community, and are
greatly    respected   by   everyone.

a beautiful silver flower basket,
and their daughters with a silver
cake dish. Many friends have since

Day Dance, which promises to be
as big aud successful as ever. With
their usual thoroughness, the ladies
are leaving nothing undone to ensure an enjoyable evening for
An attractive feature will be a
display of dancing by some of the
pupils of Mrs. McRae. Miss
Agnes Kruzick will perform the
Irish Jig, and a spectacular dance
will be given by three girls. The
event will be held in the Elks' Hall.
Elks' Old Time Dance
Proves Tremendous
Can this be 1932? A casual
visitor to the Elks' Hall on Friday
the 4th., would have good reason to
think otherwise. He would have
seen a large crowd of people zealously following out the real old-
time dances. The graceful Valeta
Waltz, the dainty French Minuet,
the precise Military Two-step, the
hilarious Quadrilles were danced
with old-time keenness and grace.
Who could resist the Polka, the
Schottische, the Barn Dance?
The Petronella and the Lightsome Reel call for memory work as
well as skill, and these were put
through just as of old. A sprinkling of fox-trots and waltzes were
added for the sake of the modern
dancers present, Who thoroughly
enjoyed the colorful spectacle afforded by the dances of by-gone days.
The music was furnished by Sid.
Armstrong and his orchestra, Sid
being a past master on the old-time
tunes and tempos. Harry Hallcow
was the efficient maVter of ceremonies, and the dance committee provided a pie supper which was a
feature in itself. The Brother Bills
fully maintained their reputation of
never doing anything by halves,
and are considering the staging of
a similar event later on.
Tennis Club Will Hold Their
Annual Meeting
The Annual General Meeting of
the Anyox Tennis Club, will be

Overnight Bedroom Sleeping Cars Popular

train for Toronto," ia a common
call nowadays into the railway
offices by the travelling public.
The company reports a very
heavy demand of late for this
type of accommodation and this
has necessitated operation of
bedroom sleeping cars on the runs
between Montreal and Quebec,
Montreal and Toronto, Ottawa
and Toronto, Toronto and Detroit, and Montreal and Detroit.
Privacy, comfort and the last
word in convenience and luxury
are keynotes of this latest development in overnight travel by
Canadian Pacific as expressed in
these single and double bedroom
and compartment cars, which
represent the equivalent of the
finest of hotel accommodation.
They provide all the luxurious
appointments of individual private rooms with a real bed that
assures deep and refreshing sleep.
Each room has toilet, lavatory,
electric fan, overhead ventilator
with exhaust fan, reading lamp
and other conveniences, the
whole being decorated in restful
colors. In the double bedroom
cars an overhead bed may be
opened from the wall, if desired,
affording   additional   facilities.
Some further features of the
Bleeping cars may be enumerated,
which make the hours of sleep so
refreshingly delightful. Temperatures are controlled thermostatically throughout the
train; roller bearings assure
smoothness of motion; coil spring
mattresses invite restful slumber; heavily padded
carpeting harmonizes with interior arrangements,
creating a general soothing effect. Berths are wide
and long and unusually roomy. The service is
presented to travellers as a masterpiece of transportation luxury and comfort. It is the realization
of all those refinements of art and efficiency of
which travel equipment designers long nave
dreamed. From the inception of this new service it
has won increasing favor among travellers who
distinguish between good average service and perfection in travel. The word "moderne" has its fullest
and most inclusive expression in these cars.
In the women's dressing rooms attached to the
Bleeping cars there is real comfort and satisfaction.
The most fastidious woman will find facilities such
as she would expect to see in a first-class hotel.
Mirrored dressing table and other toilet accessories
provide maximum accommodation without overcrowding. Here are vanity chairs conveniently
placed, ample artificial and natural lights in softly
colored shades, spotlessly white lavatories with hot
and cold running water, specially dispensed soap
and a never-ending supply of clean linen. This
affords the requisite pendant to refreshing sleep—
perfect toilette.
The men are treated in like fashion. They too
have commodious dressing rooms where they can
foregather not only for the purpose of making their
toilets but also for an enjoyable smoke before
retiring or after they have slept. Their room is
perfectly lighted, well ventilated amply supplied
with lavatories of newest design and in decorations
harmonizes with the general finish and furnishing.

Present estimates indjcate that
British Columbia produced values
of approximately $148,000,000 in
its four primary industries in 1932.
These estimates show; Agriculture,
$51,000,000; forestry, $45,000,000;
mining, $37,000,000; fisheries, $15,-
000,000. These lowered values
compared with 1930 are due not so
much to decrease ill quantity production as to lower prices.
