Doing Something for the
Kiddies at Anyox
Mine
At the beginning of the winter
season, the Mine Club executive
drew up a schedule for the use of
the Hall, other than when on the
nights the building is used for the
movies; and appearing on that
schedule were the words, ''Gymnasium—Tuesday and Thursday
evenings." Immediately from
those without the inner circle,
came the query: "What's this
gymnasium stunt, the Mine Club
is putting on?"
And from the disinterested
party came the non-enthusiastic
reply, "Oh, something for the
Kiddies."
And from that small beginning-
done so quietly, that but few
knew of the plans maturing—has
grown a Gymnasium that is providing indoor sport for all the kiddies that can muster together at
one time up on the hill.
Various classes have been organized under the direction jointly
of Billy Reynolds aud Dick Stubbs,
who are giving their time and
labor, not only voluntarily, but
with the keenest interest in the
welfare of their young and particularly promising pupils.
Training in almost every branch
of gymnastics takes place weekly,
the youngsters working like tro-
jans, in order to perfect themselves in the special sport feature
that appeals to their taste.
There are budding Vic Foleys
by tlie dozen, all in the pink of
condition; youthful wrestlers preparing to broadcast a challenge,
pyramid builders par excellence,
high jumpers and trapeze artists.
All these, and with an army of
"physical jerks" class added, are
often taking place in different parts
of the building in one evening,
much to the delight of a growing
number of spectators.
Thus "something for the kiddies"
has grown to be far more than
just that. As time goes the
Club will carry their plan further.
A punching bag and additional
Gymnasium equipment will be
purchased, and the youngsters
that give the best showing, .will
later be chosen to appear at a public performance.
All this is most excellent   work.
| Certain winter sports cannot be mi-
f joyed in Anyox.    Such pastimes
as hockey, skating, coasting, and
ithe like must be left to larger
centres. To the older boys basketball helps largely to fill the gap,
and suoh a gymnasium as the
Mine Club is now sponsoring, provides safe indoor sport, under the
splendid supervision, for the growing citizen. .
The attention of the parents has
(been focused ou these activities of
late, with muoh appreciation.
The   Melodians   are    receiving
I congratulations from their many
friends, at being engaged for the
Dhristmas dance at the Beaoh on
|Monday.

There were two games scheduled
for the Beach Gymnasium, Monday December 14, but only one
was played as the Shieks, being
unable to field a team, forfeited to

The High Sohool took an easy
game from the Smelter 43-15.
The Smelter however, did not have
Work on Climax Proves
Rich Ore Body of
Good Size
Seventy feet of tunnel work oil
the Climax property has just been
completed, which indicates that
the Climax possesses great possibilities. The tunnel was commenced
on a fine ore showing, and ore
ledge drifted on for a distance of
fifty feet, the foot wall being followed. A crosscut tunnel twenty feet in
length was then driven towards
the hanging wall, but this wall
was not reached, showing that the
ore ledge is wider than twenty
feet.
The ore is composed chiefly of
high grade galena, but argentite
and ruby silver i& also prominent,
and in addition to these silver
values, grey copper is also found.
Good ore was encountered all along
the footwall, but values increased
in the crosscut tunnel, aud improved as progress was made towards the hanging wall.
The ore ledge being developed
has been traced on the surface for
a distance of 400 feet, and open
cuts across the ledge show it to be
well over 25 feet wide.
The Climax is owned by Olier
Besner, of Prince Rupert, and lies
between the Silver Horde, Moose,
and the Last Chance. It is in the
||midst of the rich mineral bearing
region of the upper Kitsault country, and since the above mentioned
work was done, is a promising
property indeed.
Jens Larsen, who has a contract
for the work on the Climax, will
extend the crosscut tunnel early
next year. The work would have
been completed this year, but he
ran short of supplies, and the
heavy snow prohibited more being
packed to the property until next
spring.
W.J. Wells left on Thursday
for Anyox, and will spend the
next few months in the smelter
town.

"I'm going to have a fine time at
Christmas," said one young lady to
another. "Mr. Higgins is coining
to our party, and he is color-blind,
you know."
"Does his color-blindness add to
your enjoyment?" asked her friend.
"Rather," was the reply. "He
thinks all the holly berries are
mistletoe." ALICE   ARM   AND   ANYOX  HERALD,   Saturday,   December   19,   1925

Christmas feelings
The Christmas Festival is almost with us again and everyone
is now ready to celebrate as this
great Christmas Festival should be
celebrated. This season of goodwill, goodfellowship and peace has
lost none of its popularity, in its
passage through the ages, and the
people of Anyox and Alice Arm
are as enthusiastic as were our an-
' cestors of a thousand years ago,
before railways, telephones, radios
or automobiles were ever dereamt
of.
Christmas is humanity's great
new birth festival, typified in the
lovely picture of the blessed Bade
on the Virgin breast of glorified
womanhood.  "
It makes its appeal to that root
of beauty, and holiness which
dwells down within each one of
us.
It awakens dormant feelings and
aspirations which the clamor of
worldly life stifles and deadens.
It opens deep springs of brotherhood and love, from whence flow
desires to bless with gifts and good
wishes.
It leaves us sweetened and
heartened for another year's buff-
etting and anxieties, with hearts
touched and softened as by an infants first caress.
That in every sense of the word,
the Christmas of 1925 may bring
comfort and blessing to our readers, is our earnest hope, and we
wish you all
A MERRY CHRISTMAS
Doctor to little boy who has
eaten too much Christmas dinner,
"Are you in pain my lad?"
Greedy boy; "No, sir, the pain
is in me."

Origin of Yuletide
Customs
The use of holly and mistletoe
during Christmas decorations began in the long long ago. In
olden times holly was regarded as
a sacred plant. The red berries
were associated with drops of holy
blood, and the spines on, the leaves
with the thorns composing the
Crown of Thorns. The beasts of
the held would not touoh the tree,
but treated it with the greatest respect. Mistletoe dates back to the
time of the Druids, who used it at
their Yuletide feasts. Their name
for it was "All heal," and they laid
it on their altars after sacrificing a
white bull, The idea of bringing
branches of trees into houses for
the Yuletide celebration was that
the good spirits of the woods might
be appeased by being kept warm.
The Druids, did it when celebrating their pagan rites, and so did
the Romans, who used Laurel as
an emblem of peace, joy and victory. Yew has its place in our
Christmas decorations because it
was supposed to be a symbol of im
mortality, the life of a yew tree ex
tending to a thousand years or
more.
