P.J.Murphy and Cha3, Taylor of Vancouver who will op n a cabaret  in the
building on the wharf approach until
they build on Fifth street, arrived on
Thursday.
Last Tuesday night's concert under
the auspices of the women's auxilliary
of St. Mark's church, charmed an audience which expressed its approval
with applause vigorous enough to raze
a less sturdy building than the town I
hall. About a score came over from
Hyder for ihe event. It was the first i
affair of the kind staged here since the j
early days  of  the town.      Everything   Markg   Interest    of    Bush
connected witn the concert was so ably
conducted    and   the   vocal   and   other
talent so excellent, the  general  desire |
that it be repeated in  the near future
is expressed on every hand.

are quite able to take care of themselves, house or no ho lse.
A number of water records have
been made recently and, so far as investigation has gone, all are for legitimate purposes and not merely for
speculation. That is a good sign. Some
large corporations in B.C. have held
unused wa'er rights for years and kept
them away from concerns which might
put them to the use of mankind. It
no doubt would be enlightening to
have information regarding the potential water power held by the Granby
crowd.

Take time now
TO HAVE your teeth attended
to. Do not wait till aches
force you. If your teeth are in
bad condition it means your
health is being steadily undermined. Keep them attended to
properly and you will be saved
a lot of misery. Nowadays dental science has removed largely
the former fear of pain and the
oldtime fears are gone.
