Anyox Parent-Teachers
Association Hold Their
Monthly Meeting
Address Given By Dr. H. A.
The regular meeting of the
Anyox P. T. A. was held in the
New School on Tuesday last, Mrs.
L. McAlister presiding.
Mr. Robertson reported that
arrangements had been made to
hold the School Concert on
December 17th, the charge of admission to be the same as in former
years, viz. Adults 50 cents.
Children free. .
It was decided to cooperate with
the Community League in the
matter of procuring Lecturers from
outside sources during the winter
months. It was also decided to
establish a Lantern Fund to enable
the teachers to procure the
necessary slides for use in the
Magic Lantern. The sum of $50
was set aside for this purpose.
The annual routine business being concluded, the President called
upon Dr. Simmons to address the
The Docter gave a most interesting talk on the subject of "Oral
Hygiene." He first dealt with the
importance of keeping the mouth,
Some parents were very particular
about, the cleanliness of the necks
and ears of their budding offsprings, but were inclined to be
careless regarding that of the
Food accumulates round the
teeth, and if allowed to remain,
putrities, becoming the source of
various bodily ills.
Mothers were responsible for
inculcating habits of cleanliness in
their offsprings and by precept and
example, they should seek to instil into the minds of their
children the importance of keeping their teeth clean until the
habit became fixed.
He impressed upon his^ hearers
how the diet of the mother during
the pre-natal period affected the
building up of the various parts
of the body of the child, how careful she should be in the selection of
the proper kind of food.
He also laid stress upon the diet
of .the growing child and the value
of the use of "hard" food, such as
crusts, etc., in the strengthening of
the teeth, but depreciated overindulgence of candy.
Dealing with the subject of 'Repairs" he pointed out how Nature
had made provisions for the repair
of all parts of the body except
teeth. These have to be repaired
with substances foreign to nature.
A recent examination showed
that 96 per cent, of the children of
the world suffered from diseased
teeth. These seriously affected
the mental development of the
child. The worse the teeth the
greater the mental deterioation.
Because of poor teeth the habit
of "bolting" food is formed.    This,

Party and Dance
Baseball  Medals  Presented
By Mr. J. B. Haffner
On Monday evening last, the
"Brother Bills" held a card party
and danoe for the Members and
their lody friends. Owing to the
weather conditions the attendance
was not as large as anticipated,
but those who braved the elements
were loud in their praise of a very
enjoyable evening, and it is to be
hoped that there will be many
more social evenings of this kind
during the winter.
Whist was played from 8 until
10 o'clock, and prizes were awarded to Miss Gladys Rashleigh and
Mr. Ed. Craggs for top score, with
Mrs. Wm. Robertson and Mr. M.
Gow walking off with the consolation prize.
When cards were finished all repaired to the dugout, where the
social committee served refreshments. After supper dancing was
indulged in until 12 o'clock, the
music being furnished by the Elks'
Orchestra and was up to the usual
high standard. The members of
the orchestra were: J. Austin,
piano; Stewart Steel, trombone;
RyS. Stivenard and A. McDougall,
cornets; S. Armstrong and G
Leslie, violins, and Ed. Waterman,
drums. A very pleasant event
took place during the evening
which refreshed memories of the
past summer when J. B. Haffner,
General Superintendent of the
Granby Co. presented the medals
to the Elks' team, which were donated by the company for the baseball supremacy of 1924. The
Members of the Social Committee,
who had charge of this enjoyable
affair, are: H. StClair, Vic Cruik-

House, on Monday afternoon, for
for the purpose of organizing
committees for the children's

High Grade Silver Ore
Messrs. Neil Forbes and Fred
Martinson arrived down from the
Lion property during the early
part of the week. They have been
developing the property and have
driven twenty feet of tunnel. The
tunnel, which is now 145 feet in
length, is following the hanging
wall of an ore ledge from 8 to 10
feet wide. This ledge is mineralized throughout, and contains some
veins of exceptionally high grade
silver ore.
Rough Trip Experienced
With Logs
Mr. J. Wheatley returned on
Monday from Georgetown. He
accompanied his boom of logs,
which was towed to the Big Bay
Lumber Co's sawmill. The boom
contained 421.000 feet. In speaking of the trip, Mr. Wheatley said
t was one of the roughest he had
yet experienced, but they eventually arrived with the boom intact.

Almost a carnival spirit dominated the atmosphere at the Mine
Hall last Thursday, so successful
was the second card party of the
season given by the Club. The
two games are now apparently
running a neck and neck race for
popularity. A dainty supper
followed the card game competition, and dancing rounded off an
entertainment enjoyed to the full

New Ore Strike Made
At Golkeish Mine
Reports from the Golkeish mine
state that a ledge of ore, six feet
wide has been broken into. The
ore which is being shipped to
Anyox smelter, give values of
$11.00 per ton.
The Golkeish mine is situated
four miles from Anyox. It is owned by a syndicate, and Mr. H. W.
Heidman is general manager. The
staff will be shortly increased,
when another shift will be worked
The Golkeish has been worked
intermittently for several years,
and some tine specimens of gold ore
have been taken from the mine.
The property is equipped jwith an
up-to-date power plant, and plans
have been made to work the mine
throughout the coming winter.
Death at Anyox
The death occurred at the Anyox
Hospital, on Saturday, November
15th, of Mr. Alex. Herritier.
Deceased was thirty-five years
of age. He was a native of Switzerland, and had resided in Anyox
for the past five or six years.
The funeral was held on Tuesday, at the cemetery, and was
under the auspices of the B. P. O.
Elks, of which' he was a member.

Mining will be carried on at the
Esperanza at a more lively pace
in the near future, if present plans
are carried out.
The owners have deoided to ship
all their secontl grade ore to Anyox
smelter during the coming winter.
The mine contains a big tonnage of
this ore, and until recent investigations were made it was thought
impossible to ship this ore with
.financial .success. The ore averages 37 ounces of silver per ton,
and $1.50 in gold, Mr. Falconer
has taken a contract to transport
the ore from the mine to wharf. •
An ore bin, capable of holding
fifty tons has been constructed at
the mine for handling the ore.
Work on a 3ft. vein of second
grade ore is being carried on. The
ore is located in the tunnel directly
above the Baldy tunnel. The
tunnel commenced some time ago
in the Baldy workings will be completed. The tunnel is expected to
encounter the high grade ore
found in the upper level. The
staff at at the mine will be increased about December 1st.
In addition to the second grade
ore in the mine, there are about
1700 tons in the dumps. This ore
will not be shipped, but will be
milled at some future date. It is
estimated that this ore contains
about $35,000 worth of silver.
In addition to the shipping of ore
from the Esperanza this winter, all
signs point to an opening up of the
big quartz deposits that exist on
the property. Mr. J. B. Haffner,
general superintendent for the
Granby Co. visited the property
two weeks ago. Last week-end,
Mr. Jim Ferguson, accompanied
by Mr. R. Armour, inspected these
quartz deposits, Mr. Ferguson
was well pleased with what he
saw, and expected that he would
shortly bo back with a crew of
men, and commence mining. If the
quartz is mined, a compressor plant
will be installed, and a crew of between twenty and thirty men will
be employed. The quartz contains
silica and will be used in Anyox
smelter for fluxing purposes.
The quartz ledge is seven feet
wide and can be traced on the surface through the "I'll Chance It,"
"Black Bear," " Lone Maid," and
into Ralph Ingraham's claims.
Mr. Norman Cowan, who arrived from Vancouver and Anyox
about ten days ago, left on Thursday for Vancouver. While here,
he staked two mineral claims in
the upper Kitsault country. Mr.
Cowan, who is associated with
mining men in the south, was surprised at the heavy mineralization
of the Kitsault valley, and predict;
ed a mining boom in jthe camp, at
an early date. ALICE   ABM  AND  ANYOX  HERALD,   Saturday,   November  22,   1924

Outlook for Copper
Nearly all those holding prominent positions in the copper world
have passed their opinions regarding the future price of copper.
Of late, however, there has been
a deadly silence. The prophets
refuse to prophesy any more, and
meanwhile, copper is still in the
doldrums. The acceptance of
the Dawes' plan by the big
European powers was expected to
make copper jump two or three
cents, but as far as the price of
copper is concerned, General
Dawes might never have been
born. From a general outlook,
the only thing that will stimulate
the price of copper is a curtailing
of production, but the question is,
who is going to curtail. If all the
big copper producers did cut
their production ten or twenty per
cent, and the price rose to 16 or
17 cents per pound, there is no
doubt new companies would open
up new fields, and the market
would be again flooded. At the
present time there is'nt a company
financially strong enough to control
the copper industry, and keep the
price a above starvation scale.

look over the stock of your local

When buying at home you have
the advantage of seeing what you

your goods to arrive. In buying
at home you are helping to keep
your town going during these trying times. Also, don't forget that
when buying from the city store,
you have to help pay for heavy

Prominent Mining Man
Says Cassiar Gold Strike
Looks Good
"The Gold Pan creek strike looks
good to me," said Jerry C. Calvin,
who reached Seattle recently en-
route to New York City, on a business trip. "It should be understood, however, that not a hole
has been bed rocked on the creek,"
said he to the Alaska Weekly,
"and until that is done—and it
won't be done until next spring
now—? the importance of the discovery must remain in doubt."
Mr. Calvin says that the gold
taken out by the discoverers,
Grady and Ford, come from rim
rock of tlie crock, and while this
looks very encouraging, nevertheless an experienced mining man
wants to soo the bedrock before he
will hazard a definite opinion
about the strike. Mr. Calvin says
that if Cold Pan proves a winner,
there will be line opportunities for
tbe prospectors, for the country in
which Gold Pan is located is a big-
one, with a mineralized area of
From fifty miles in width to a bun
dred miles in length, roughly
speaking. Tbe Dease Lake diggings, in the seventies, produced
five or six million'in gold. Calvin
figures that the gold-bearing belt
extends from Dease Lake eastward
to the Liard country, taking in

British Columbia's
Increase of Lead
and Zinc
British Columbia is rapidly assuming a dominant position in the
world's distributing centres as
producer of zinc and lead. Hon.
William Sloan, minister of mines,
told delegates to the annual meeting of the British Columbia Min
ing Association at Victoria recent
'ly. British Columbia's zinc out
put has jumped from 49,000,000
pounds in 1921 to 58,000,000
pounds in 1923, and the first' half
of this year witnessed tbe production of 29,500.000 pounds in this
province," said Mr. Sloan.
' We may expect an output this
year close to 00,000,000 pounds.
When we look at the lead production of British Columbia, our progress is even more remarkable,"
said»the minister. "The output of
the province has risen from 47,000,-
000 pounds in 1921 to '90,000.000
pounds this year. During the first
half of this year, Canada's production of lead was 79,000,000 pounds,
of which British Columbia produced 75,000,000 pounds. If tbe
same pace is maintained throughout tbe year, our production will
be 150,000,000 pounds this year."
Mr. Sloan stated that the province was competing favorable in
the world's markets so for as lead
and zinc were concerned. He
expected that copper production
would be about the same in British
Columbia as last year, or about
00,000,000 pounds, and ho believed
that this prod net would benefit from
the Stabilization of ' the nietal
markets as a result of .the Coolidge
victory in the'United States.
He noted with satisfaction a de
dins in fuel oil production through
out the world,   which  would  help
the coal mines.

THE   first   party   of   British I Canadian Na
youths   brought  to  Alberta

week. The boys are shown here on

Abraham Martin Honored
Monument to First Scottish Settler,
First  king's   Pilot On  the  St.
;     Lawrence, and First Former
On the Plains of Abraham Unveiled.
At Quebec recently the Hon.
Athanase David, Provincial Secretary
in the Quebec Cabinet, officiated at
the unveiling of a monument erected
by the Canadian Pacific Railway
Company In memory of Abraham
Martin, who was the first known
Canadian of Scottish descent and the
first King's pilot on the St. Lawrence
River. The Plains of Abraham received their name from him, he receiving a grant of the land from
Champlain in 1617. The unveiling
of the monument, a handsome granite shaft seven feet high surmounted
by a globe supported by thistles, was
an important event and was attended
by a large number of prominent citizens and political representatives.
The sturdy pioneer is further acclaimed by Andrew Patterson, who
gays ;—
Auid Scotland many a hero boasts
From John o' Groats to Wigtown's
Both Lowland   lads and Highland
That wear the tartan;
But now another seeks your toasts,
Old Abra'm Martin.
But what pretence has he to fame,
That we should celebrate his name,
And thus in stone and bronze proclaim
His style and story ?
A threefold plea can Martin claim
To all this glory.
The first of Scotia'B sons was he
To cross Atlantic's stormy sea-
True pioneers of liberty,
Giving their best
That this Dominion fair might be
Blessing and blest.
See In his wake the glorious band,
MacKenzies, Frasers, foremost stand
MacDonalds, too, in high command,
And James McGill,
Mountstephen and Strathcona grand-
'Twould pages fill.
The first was he to till this plain,
Now sacred to that fierce campaign
When heroes fell, but not in vain
In glorious strife.
0 Canada, thine was the gain,
Renewed thy life !
He was the first to mark the tides,
The rocks, the shoals St. Lawrence
The mariner In him confides
And bans his fears;
"The ship," he cries, "in safety ride,'
When Martin steers."
Though fate 'mong strangers cast hif
He ne'er forgot he was a Scot,
Thrifty and shrewd he was, I wot,
Canty and gaucy,
Proud of the nickname that he got,
"Abra'm l'Ecossais."
Let us whate'er our race or creed,
This ancient Scot's example need,
And give the best that's In our breed
That ours may be
A Canada In word and deed
HIgh-souled and free.
