RETURNED MISSIONARY FROM HONAN ADDRESSES AUDIENCE
GOVERNMENT AGENT
MAKING GOOD PROGRESS
AFTER CRITICAL ILLNESS
Miss McLennan Sheds New
Light On Missionary
Work There
Those who were fortunate in being present at the United Church on
Sunday evening last listened to an
address which judging from the many
favorable comments heard with regard to it waa one the like of which
Cranbrook* has not previously enjoy-
■<!. The speaker, Miss E. McLennan,
of Glengarry, Ontario, held the attention of her hearers for a long time
as she gave as it were the "Warrant"
for missionary work in general, the
nature of the special mission in which
she was engaged, and certain aspects of the political and other situations which had their influences and
bearing on mission work in China.
By reference to the scripture lesson the speaker showed that the success of any movement could only be
assured by keeping the objective in
mind and through unflinching devotion to its cause. Jesus had sacrificed home to come to earth, here to
suffer and die for the benefit of mankind. Paul, his first disciple, considered that it would be agony for
him not to preach the gospel of
Christ, and thus, ever since, the
spreading of the gospel has gone on.
Honan, that part of Central China
in which she labored, was described
as a fertile land, rich in mines and
forests and considered the garden of
the Lord. She stated how, with
the construction of the great wall,
China had like others tried to hold
herself aloof. This, she said, China
could not do, any more than other
more modern nations could. Only
within the past 100 years has China
assumed outside relations. The 17th
and 18th centuries saw the expansion
of individual companies to the point
where they sought to establish trade
relations with China. China did not
want them, the war of '85 being a
war to compel China to open her
doors. She told how that the opium
was introduced into China and the
compulsion that there was before
China admitted it. In 1902 an agreement was made whereby the output
should decrease 10 per cent each
year. This went on till 1917, when
the last thirty million was burnt,
this being her willing burnt offering,
as it were. The lecturer told of the
attempt of the dowager to get rid
of the foreigners, and how that even
thc threat of being put to death could
not scare the native Christians. Many
were put to death. For this China
hnd to pay $765,000,000 in GO years.
China wns beaten again. With this,
however, there came an awakening
to the fact that China, though consisting of one quarter of the population of the world and rich in resources, whs always beaten. Students
stnrted to attend British and other
universities, and a true analysis of
the affairs of China was made.
lt was seen that she was limited
by statute to a five per cent tariff,
while the other nations were placing
heavy walls against her. Also that
the Christian nations were sending
their manufacturers into China and
exploiting them in every possible
way, reaping enormous profits. She
showed how such action militated
against thc interests of the Christianizing of thc foreigner. With telling
ffect she said that "there would be
no millenium until wc Christian nations do our duty by thc non-Christian people of the world." She
thought that thc time had come for
a serious reflection on the attitude
toward! missionary work. In her
mind thc church was failing in its
mission in this regard, and was but
playing with the situation. She felt
thnt at the present time there was a
crisis on with respect to the Oriental
situation. The danger of Japan and
China getting together was imminent, with respect to which she said
"God help the white race if the Chinese and Japanese combine." In
conclusion she appealed for a mora
active interest in the matter of missions and not to be selfish in re*
gard to them. $1000 spent on ourselves who were supposed to be
christianized and only $10 on the
foreigners was not to her the right
proportion.
Friends have been much relieved
to hear during the past week of the
greatly improved condition of Mr.
Fred Small, Government Agent, who
was taken sertousjy ill on Tuesday
of last week. His condition for the
first two or three days was serious
enough to give rise to the most disquieting fears, and for a day or two
would have surprised no one to have
heard the worst news. But fortunately, medical skill and assiduous
nursing care, plied constantly, won
out, and it is now considered thut
Mr. Small is well on the way to recovery, though it will be many weeks
before he regains anything like his
normal health.
On Tuesday evening of last week,
after paying a visit to Kimberley
during the day, Mr. Small was taken
with internal hemorrhages, for which
a cause could at that time only be
surmised. He weakened rapidly under the continuous loss of blood, and
for a time it seemed as if the hemorrhages could not be stopped. On
Thursday afternoon he was removed
to the hospital, and on Friday afternoon his condition had become so
weakened that an operation was performed for a blood transfusion, Mrs.
E. H. Small, his sistei-in-law, assisting in the operation. Mr. Small's
condition has since improved, and
there have been no signs of the recurrence of the outbreak for some
days past, and with the gradual return of his strength, it is hoped that
the patient will have made sufficiently good progress toward recovery to
allow of his return to his home in
the next few days.

SNOOKER TOURNAMENT
CONCLUDED AT
TATER'S POOL ROOM
On Tuesday evening last the
Snooker tournament which has been
in progress for the past two weeks
at Mr. George Tater's Pool Hall on
Baker Street was concluded and the
prizes which the popular manager
of this hall had put up were awarded.
The tournament proved to be most
interesting and afforded the participants some good sport. As a result
of this successful competition, we
understand that another tournament
is shortly to be announced when the
prizes will be even more attractive
than was the case in the last instance. The awards were as follows:
1st—Guy Billings, Moyie, prize
valued at $10.00.
2nd— G. Russel, City, prize valued at $7.50 .
3rd—R. Wilton, City, prize valued
at $5.00.
4th—Sam Ratcliffe, prize valued
at $3.00.
5th—Mike Kelly, prize valued at
$2.50.
There were twenty-two entries in
the contest.
The special prize valued at $2.50
for the most games played was won
by Mike Kelly.
Remanded or Week
The charge of being an interdicted person found in possession of intoxicants preferred by the City Police against Hary Grant, was remanded for one week at the Police
court Thursday last. The charge involves a number of technicalities
which the court is considering.
Vi.it. On Way West
Tuesday of this week Mr. Vincent
Fink had the pleasure of a visit from
an old university class mate, Mr.
Douglas L. Ross, of Toronto, who
stopped over on his way to Vancouver from the East. Mr. Ross is a
graduate of Osgood Hall and a mom
ber of the same fraternity as Vincent
Fink. He is the son of thc well
known Toronto Lawyer of that name.
Word reached the city on Friday
last of a devastating fire which
visited Elko early tbat dny when
extensive damage was done. Both
the Elk and the Columbia Hotels
were among tbe buildings destroyed
along with a number of other plnces
including the store of R. Hirtz, the
store of Mr. Millet, and the drug
store of Ray Hirtz. Most of the contents of these buildings, including
stock and furnishings, wus also lost.
The cause of the fire has not yet
been ascertained, but it is likely that
the damage will exceed $75,000.
There being few Vacilities at Elko
for fighting lnrgc conflagrations,
little could bc done ut this time to
extinguish thc flames, the only possible course being to prevent their
spreading as much as possible. Jas,
Martin, of Martin Bros, was at
Elko on Friday, hi? firm being interested in the insurance.
The fire started in the rear of
the Elk Hotel about 3.30 a.m., possibly originating around a stove
there. It spread rapidly, and with
only a very limited water supply
available, little could bc done to save
the adjoining buildings, though wet
blankets were used in an endeavor
to check the spread of the fire.
Whether the places destroyed are
likely to be rebuilt is problematical,
nnd it cun he understood that the
fire is a big blow to the historic little
town. It is recalled by some that
the matter of an adequate water supply for the town has been much
under discussion, especially at election times, there being difficulties in
bringing the pipe across the Elk
River. Dr. King is stated to have
assured Elko people on more than
one occasion that this would be satisfactorily arranged, and now the need
for it hns been made so apparent,
possibly something may be done,
even though it would be too late to
have served in a big crisis.
Only a portion of thc loss is covered by insurance, Martin Bros.
having some insurance on the Hirtz
stores and stocks.
This was the second disastrous fire
to visit the district within the space
of twenty-four hours, the big fire at
Bull River occuring thc previous
morning.
4UMAMMMMMAMMAMW
By-Law No. 263, known as the "Sidewalks Construction By-Law," which
permits of the expenditure of the
sum of $8000 on the repair and
replacement of sidewalks, was also
given Its first two readings.
A further meeting of the city coun-
Law," specifying where the sum of I cil was decided on for Tuesday even-
$22,000 Is to be spent on re-'ing, tho 15th, to further consider the
surfacing and repairing of roads, was outstanding business now up for con-
also advanced to ita second reading, sideration.
Fast Freight Service
The CP.R. is giving some fast
freight service just now, even if it
is just before Christmas, when there
might be some delays expected on
account of holiday business. A big
shipment of envelopes for The
Herald, which was to have left
Toronto last month, did not leave
the warehouse in Toronto till December 6th. There was an urgent
need for some of these goods, and
the company officials at this end
were asked to trace the shipment and
hurry it along if possible. Such a
request proved unnecessary, however,
since before there was time to take
steps in this direction, the shipment
came to hand and was delivered at
the office on the 10th, or only
eleven days after leaving Toronto.
Criticism is often made of the C.P.
R, In different directions, but this is
only one instance of how they are
delivering service to the public.
WEDDING
THOMPSON - BARDGETT
A wedding of considerable local
interest took plnce quietly at Christ
Church, on Wednesday evening,
when Miss Rachel Mny Bardgett, second daughter of Mr. and Mrs, W.
B. Bardgett, became thc bride of Mr.
William Thompson, of this city. The
ceremony was performed at 6.15
by Rev. F. V. Harrison, and only a
few of the more intimate friends of
thc bridal couple were present at
thc church.
The bride was given in marriage
by her brother, Mr. Jnck Bardgett,
and her sister, Miss Grace Bardgett,
was the bridesmaid. Mr, Bert.
Hughes supported the groom ns best
man.
After tho ceremony tho company
repaired to the home of the bride's
parents, where a wedding supper
was served, and a social evening with
music accompanied the congratulations which were extended to the
newly married couple,
Both the bride and groom ore
well known in thc city, Miss Bardgett having resided in the city for
WELL KNOWN SPEAKER AND MUSICIAN
AT KNOX CHURCH
Notwithstanding the many demands of the Christmas season, the
week of interdenominational services
Knox Church are being well attended. Rev. F. A. Robinson,
Ph.D., of Toronto, is mnking his
twentieth tour of the western provinces in the interests of Biblical
Education and Evangelism nnd hns
spoken in churches of every denomination. Miss C. B. Grunert, the talented musician, who has become
known from coast to coast, renders
the well-known hymns with a brilliancy and enthusiasm tbat greatly assists in the service of song.
On Sunday night the church wns
well filled and a stirring message was
given on the words, "The People are
yet Too Many." Striking illustrations were given showing that the
old story of Gideon's victory with
three hundred picked men against a
great host of Midinnites was frequently duplicated in modern times.
One man with God has again and
ngain put the thousands to flight, he
d. Mr. Robinson spoke as au example of Anthony Comstock, one of
the world's best men and most valiant fighters, although for a long time
only n third porter, became tho champion of oppressed and slave-made
hildren in New York. He had lived
with them and seen their sorrows and
struggles. Efforts were made to repeal thc Acts for the Protection of
Children which Mr. Comstock hod
been instrumental in getting passed.
A petition twenty-one hundred feet
long and containing 70,000 names
was presented to Congress and great
legal lights poured out their eloquence demanding in thc name of
these 76,000 signatories that the
Acts be repealed. Then the "third
porter" was allowed to speak, and
when his compassionate heart had
uttered itself in defence of the suffering childhood, the pronouncement
was made "the Act stands." One man
valiant for righteousness had 'put
76,000 to flight.
Ench day at 3.30 a meeting for
conference ond prayer is being held,
and in addition to the nightly meeting at 8.00 o'clock workers gather
for prayer at 7,30. Revs. W. T. Tapscott, B. C. Freeman and M. S. Blackburn have taken part in the services
and the Salvation Army officers are
also co-operating. Tonight Thursday, Dr. Henry Van Dyke"'s great
story, "The Other Wise Man," is to
be pictorially illustrated. The use
of the stereoptican adds greatly to
the interest of the meetings, Dr. Robinson's view being exceedingly beautiful. The closing meeting will be
held on Friday night.
A special meeting of the board of
school trustees was held on Monday
evening to consider again some op-
plications for the new appointment
being made to the high school staff.
The choice was narrowed down to
two, both ladies, and enquiries were
to be made regarding them as first
and second choice for the "position.
Later in the week word was received
in regard to the first of the applicants, which seemed to throw the
choice on to the other applicant, and
some further enquiries now being
made regarding this applicant nre expected to result in an appointment
very shortly.
The matter of the high school students holding a dance on the evening
of Friday, the 18th, wns also before
the board, and permission was granted to the students to hold such a
function in the high school auditorium, provided it was confined to pupils of the school. It has been learned - by members of the board that
there is some possibility of the students putting on a dance elsewhere
thut evening, and in this case, the
board made it clear that they could
accept no responsibility for the conduct of such an affair, and they further feel thnt it should be looked
after by parents of the pupils.

rallied strongly during the following
day, however, and his many friends
were glad to learn that he is again

People who believe in omens and

the matter of the two big fires which
occurred in the East Kootenay district last week, almost exactly
twenty-four hours apart. Again in
thc city this week there were alarms
almost at the same hour on Monday
and Tuesday evenings. On Monday
evening the fire department was
called to the home of Frank Fowler,
French Avenue, where a chimney
fire needed some attention, but was
soon subdued, while again shortly

The above is the list of
which E. T. Cooper, of the 1.
farm company, and himself a fox
breeder, brings back from Vancouver, where ten local foxos were
shown at the first winter livestock
show held there, and which took place
last week. There wore over three
hundred entries in the tox section,
breeders from all over the country
sending in exhibits.
This was the first venture at which
local stock wns shown alongside other
animals raised by specialists, and
considering thc conditions, the result
is considered gratifying, and shows
thnt the local company and Mr. Cooper have in their foundation stock animals which stand up to the best in
the country. Tbe exhibit from this
city, some of which were the property of the fox farm company and
some Mr. Cooper's own animal-, were
placed on show practically just as
ihey came from the crates in which
they travelled, and they were put up I
against animals which had been raised for exhibition purposes, and which
were continually being preened and
made to look their best.
Mr. Cooper considers the most interesting class, and that to which the
most lnvor may he said to attach itself, was the pale silver male pup, aii
open class in which there were thirty
exhibits, and in which a local
animal was awarded fourth place.
Through the medium of the
show a great many interesting
comparisons have been made possible
as to the worth of the local stock,
and how it compares with that raised in other parts of the country,
although sending the exhibit to the
show cost upward of §300, it is considered money well spent.
The judges in the fox classes were
the chief Dominion fox inspector,
who acted as chief judge, assisted by
two well known breeders of Prince
Edward Island.
Mr. Cooper returned from tho
show on Tuesday evening   of   this
eek.
The Cranbrook Assembly of tho
Canadian Daughters League have all
plans laid for a big affair on the llth

1 will be the orders for the evening.
We are given to understand that n
jolly good time is assured. All native sons and daughters and friends
are asked to keep the date in mind.
Full of thoroughly seasonable main colors, the Christmas number of

the War Cry, the Salvation Army
organ in the west, has been given a
thorough circulation all through the

typifying all the provinces of the
dominion, each being shown with a
view that is appropriate to an out-
the War Cry is naturally never lost
standing industry. The message of
sight of, even in a special number,
and the Christmas stories ore all of
special interest. The officers find
there is a good demand for the magazine wherever they go.

Jltiportant fact
abOUt /CHEVROIFT/
THIS one-piece windshield is the
same construction as found on
the much more expensive Fisher
Body closed cars. It permits full,
unobstructed vision and, when raised,
perfect ventilation.
When partially raised it functions as
a cowl ventilator the full width of
the cowl. The windshield is raised
and lowered bv a few turns of a
Ternstedt regulator.
All closed models are equipped with
automatic windshield wiper. A textile leather-covered steel sun visor
and cowl lamps are also standard
equipment.

SYNOPSIS I
Jim Fowler, mail clerk, has induced
Bob Wilson to abandon his life as n
tramp, seek a railroad job and settle
with him in Crater City. Bob
had prevented the wrecking of the
Limited Mail on which Jim was clerk
and then befriended him when Fowler wos grief-stricken and desperate
over the death of his wife in giving
birth to a son. The two huve set
out for the railroad yards, where
Fowler is going to introduce Wilson
to the yardmaster.
CHAPTER IV—Continued
Jim was one of the few real estate
iconoclasts who had adventured into the high outskirts of the town.
But the Widow O'Leary, whose pioneering blood had been thoroughly drained by a steerage passage to
America forty years before, when
was—well, when she was forty
years younger—hnd a large house
near the center of town, where it
crowded like a brood hen over the
flock of bungalows on either side.
Business considerations, too, had a
hand in Mrs. O'Leory's location,
for she "took boarders," in addition
to occasional unpaid activities as a
nurse and regular well-paid drudgery in a backyard elbow-power
laundry.
She was zealously engaged in the
latter branch of her manifold enterprises when Bob and Jim stopped
by to inquire after thc baby, to
whom Mrs. O'Leary accorded the
distraction and care of star boarder
in her menage. !
Mrs. O'Leary stepped aside from
her tub and revealed with a hush
warning a plump infant where it
was sleeping in a small, padded
wash basket under the spacious tent
of her skirts. Jim was duly impressed with the obvious serenity of
his son and heir; Bob, similarly, with
his namesake,
Mrs. O'Leary's tongue pumped
industriously in time with her arms
as they resumed the soapy massaging of some engineer's balbriggans.
Upon learning that Bob had decided
to get work and remain with Jim,
she scolded.
"Now, you boys can't be living
up there alone. It's too big for you,
and too far for me to be trottin'
back and forth in the care of it.
Besides,"—gently, to Jim, " 'tis better for you not to live in rooms and
with things that always remind
you—"
She pointed over a bepicketed succession of small backyards.
"Do you mind that brown bungalow down the block. I have it
for rent, and its just small enough
for the two of you and near enough
for me to keep house for you without abusing me rheumatism. It
will be almost as good as having
the little one home with you."
Jim and Bob agreed helplessly in
the face of the Widow's kindly but
positive management of their affairs,
then betook themselves once more
toward the Yards. To spare both
Bob and himself Main Street's gauntlet of stares Jim lead a diverted
way down a side street and across
wooded fields toward the flank of
the bustling Yard.
Proceeding quietly in one of the
mutually preoccupied moods that
often fell upon them, they were
startled suddenly when a fat, panting, excited figure lurched out of
some shrubbery and confronted them,
"Potts!' exclaimed Bob, genuinely pleased. Then, quickly, "Why
what's the matter—you look
though someone had asked you to
work."
"Matter enough, my dear erstwhile companion," moaned the Professor. "The Yard dicks are in
search of me. I am unjustly accused of the theft of some brass journals. Spike stole them, but he cunningly managed to implicate me—
me, Potts, an innocent ond harmless
man, sir, above reproach in matters
of personal integrity where thc
property and rights of others arc
concerned, as you know, my dear
boyt What am I to do? If they
apprehend me I shall be convicted
without a chance. See—he slipped
these into my pocket. I was about
to throw them away when I saw
you. Won't your kind looking
young friend here return them for
me and fix the blame where it belongs?"
Bob took thc journals. "I can
vouch for this mnn, Jim, if you'll
help me explain to the railroad detectives."
Jim readily agreed, whereupon
Potts overwhelmed him with oratorical and flowery expressions of
gratitude.
"What did you do with the money
you got for saving the Limited?"
Bob broke in humorously.
Potts, hangdoggishly alert in the
manner of his nomadic kind, was
ready to scuttle off at the first alarm
during hia lachrymose explanation:
"Spike insisted upon a division,
so I had to allot him half of tho
tendencies to resist the importuning
of a friend—especially when that
friend is equipped with a steel claw!"
Potts caressed the seat'of his pants
in woeful reminiscence. "Then, sir,
he borrowed my half!"
Bob nnd Jim choked from a mixture of uncontrollnble mirth at the
comic opera complexion of tragic
futility on Potts' face and of angry
contempt for the tactics of the sinister bully, Spike. So vehement
were the promises of the young men
to avenge him that peace of mind
descended upon Polls like a gentle
rain. Bathed in benign contentment he waddled off, jauntily unafraid, flourishing a fatly coy hand,
"Goodbye, my dear boys, and
God bless you—Pottsey will not for
get you. And soy, you'll find Spike
hiding in the third ear of that string
of cattle empties on Uie southermost
siding."
Potts broke into a carefree whistling of "Daisy Bell" as he marched
toward the lonesome open spaces.
Not many minutes Inter, Bob and
Jim picked their way across the coal
dusty yards and shimmering rails
which, in the raw shower of sunlight, seemed to undulate like silver
snakes,    and    located    Morrnn    by
riment—sucked in the corncra of his
mouth. Him—a detective! Presently regaining control of himself, albeit there was a curious timbry nervousness in his voice, he answered,
No, thanks! I want to fire—and
then to drive."
Although Jim kept silent his pleasure in Bob's decision was reflected
in his face. Morran, too, looked
pleased. "You're turnin' down something easy for something hard and
dirty," he warned. "Have you had
any drivin' experience?"
"Can drive a flivver!" Bob boasted innocently.
"Hell," exploded Bolts, "I don't
mean a lousey gas buggy—I mean a
real, steam engine! A good old
poundin', sweatin', lurchin', cool-
swillin' Mallet or Baldwin or Cook
or American!"
"No!" stammered Bob in a drowned voice.
"What's your education been, son
—nnd by that I menu pistons, not
poetry—mechanics, not music? Can
you tell thc business end of a Stil-
son?"
Bob thought remotely of his B.S.
from Princeton; his M.E, from Carnegie Tech.; his post-graduate work
at Massachusetts, during which he *
had invented a new type cylinder
head vacuum with which these very J
same Mallet thoroughbreds that Mor-
ran's men fussed over and groomed
like racetrack pets were equipped.
But circumspection's white lies ruled
Bob's tongue.
'Three years high school, worked
in a machine shop, fired in the boiler-
room of a city utility company back
east, and took lessons in 'Railroad
Shop Practise' and 'How to Be an
Engineer' from the Inter-ocean Correspondence Schools of Scramble-
ton," he bragged vaingloriously.
Bolts was dumbly aghast in the
face of such erudition.
"Report for work seven o'clock
Monday morning," he condescended,
"and I'll shove a callous-stick into
your fists, son. And now, so long—
there goes a guy what's developed
the hotbox habit an' I got a few remarks to make to him!" Eyes flaming, he bolted after a passenger yardman.

which being in that they keep the

very numerous in the vicinity of tho
fairways and greens, and on Lac
Beauvert, close to one of the new
greens, beaver have built a house,
which adds to the attractiveness of
one of the natural hazards of the
course.

hearing before coming within sight
of him. He was paying his disrespects to an erring wiper upon the
subject of empty oilcans nnd emptier heads in tones that outdid the
sun in lifting the atmospheric temperature. Morrnn wns small, warped like a pickle barrel spigot; a redheaded, throbbing, .half-century old
but undiminished fireball, dynamic
as increment left on earth by a
flash of lightning might be, which
may or may not hnve been the
thought that inspired the Division's
nickname for him—"Bolts."
Sparks seemed to flash steadily
across the bridge of "Bolts'" nose
from one of his eyes to the other
when Jim, after introducing Bob,
turned in thc stolen journals and
divulged the facts of Spike's whereabouts. Over the yard telephone
Morran summoned detectives from
the headquarters offices, arranging
an immediate rendezvous at the
scene of Spike's hiding place.
Spike surrendered with waspish
bad grace to overwhelming numbers
when he wns surprised and routed
out. His malevolent eyes glowered
upon Bob a promise of unforgotten
and now augmented hatred.
"Guess I had de right hunch on
you, 'bo—I knew yer fer a dick all
de time," he inferred erroneously in
his animosity. His purry, catlike
docility threw his captors off their
guard, so that be was able to sidle
close to Bob without hindrance.
Swift nnd vicious in hia treachery,
he jabbed his spike strnight at the
jugular area of Bob's throat.
Thc attack came too suddenly
and too unexpectedly for any of
the onlookers to interfere. Bob's
own wariness was nil that saved him;
he caught the terrible arm when its
razorlike tip was so close that it
pricked a drop of blood from his
throat. An instant later Spike went
flat nnd cold from a smnshing right
fist which Bolts Morran had unleashed almost simultaneously with Spike's
murderous thrust. Handcuffs were
clamped on Spike while he was still
unconscious, and the detectives bore
him nwny to temporary confinement
in the headquarters building until he
could be turned over to the local authorities.
About $7,500 in gold was produced, according to W. A. Johnston of
the Geological Survey of Canada,
from placers on Goldpan creek, Cassiar, British Columbia, during the
summer of 1026. It was on Gold-
pan creek that the find was made in
the autumn of 1924 that led to the
rush into that district in the spring
of 1925. This creek is a tributary
of Little Eagle river, and lies eleven
miles in a direct line due east of the
head of Dease Lake.
All the mining was done by hand
as in the seventies when the Cassiar
district was the scene of considerable
activity. Nearly all the gold was
obtained on the lower part of the
creek from the Discovery claim, one
thousand feet long, and from claims
No. 1 above and No. 2 below each
two hundred and fifty feet long.
The creek was mined out for a length
of five hundred and sixty-five feet,
the ground averaging three to five
feet in depth. Some gold was found
in the upper parts of the creek,
which is near four miles long, and on
its tributaries, but apparently not
in sufficient quantities to pay for
working by hand methods.
Considerable prospecting was done
in other parts of the region and extended as far north as Frances lake,
east to Muddy river and in the west
on the first north fork of Clearwater
river. One party of prospectors
used a hydroplane for moving from
one part of the region to another, as
well as for flying in and out of the
country. Late in the autumn, a discovery of placer gold on low benches
in the canyon of the first north forg
of Clearwater river, about twenty-
five miles above the mouth of the
Clearwater, was reported, and
number of prospectors went into the
area. No information is available as
to thc importance to be attached to
the new discovery.
Machinery including a drag-line
scraper outfit, over thirty tons of
hydraulic pipe, and a Keystone drill
for mining and prospecting on Dease,
Thibert and Me Dame creeks,
which most of the mining was done
in the early days, were taken into the
district last summer, so that although
thc Cassiar placer field is an old one,
and has produced very little gold in
recent year, the past summer has
witnessed a marked revival of interest in the possibilities of the region.
Park Animals Improving Jasper

|One of the most attractive in the
Dominion, according to a report from
"Narrow shave," laughed Bob,
brushing thc blood drop from his
Adam's npple.
"You're a cool customer," sputtered Bolts. Jim hnd told him, during thoir short walk from the roundhouse before meeting the detectives, ^Stanley Thompson, the architect in
that Bob sought work; so, inspired I charge of the new course, and the
by Spike's mistake in thc connection thrifty Scottish plan of turning sheep
of Bob with the arrest, Bolts now J on to golf courses in order to savte

World'i Record Lath Cut
On Friday, November 20th, the
Manley Chew Sawmill, Midland, Ont,
turned out a world's record cut of
132,900 four foot Norway Pine
Laths, in 10 hours. This record cut
was made on the P. Payette Co.'s
new patented ball bearing, 16 gauge,
thin saw lath machine., manufactured in Penetang, Ont
The new Payette invention takes
out just half the kerf ot the ordinary
Lath Saw, and increases the quantity
of Laths from 20% to 25% from
the same amount of material.
With the decrease in standing
timber and with no hope of it getting
any better, any machinne that will
increase our lath cut by taking out
just half the sawdust, is something
that should interest any live and up-
to-date sawmill man. *•

QUEBEC LUMBERMAN
FEELING B.C. COMPETITION, OFFICIAL SAYS
During an address at thc Rotary
Club luncheon at Quebec last week
Gustave Pichc, chief of the forestry
branch of the department of'lands
and forests, declared that their province was becoming the dumping
ground from the Pacific Coast, due
to tho low transportation via the
Panama Canal, and he thought Quebec should do something to protect
its lumbermen, who had played such
an important part in the development of Eastern Canada.
The greatest drawback to the lumber trade of the eastern provinces
was undoubtedly this competition
from the Pacific Coast, and during
this year more than 2,000,000 feet of
such lumber passed through thc Panama Canal on its way to the Atlantic
seaboard, Mr. Piche said.
"We owe the lumberman something," he said, "and the least we
could do is to give the preference
to lumber coming from trees grown
in Eastern Canada, even if ther is
a slight difference in price, at it is
well to remember that such lumber
is better suited to our climatic conditions than that grown in aother
climate."
Victoria.—It has been decided that
motor traffic on the new Fraser canyon road shall pay tolls, probably (5,
but residents on the road will bc
exempt In view of the cost of the
road it is thought only right that the
people who will use it should make
some contribution towards its maintenance, especially as it will be chiefly a tourist highway. The cost of the
road so far has been $893,1C7, and
the work is ninety per cent completed.

PROVINCIAL POLICE
MEMBERS MAY BE MADE
SUBJECT TO FINES
A bill to amend the Police Act,
giving the Superintendent of Provincial Police power to discipline members of the force by fine as well as
by suspension hus been passed
through ull stages except third reading by the legislature at Victoria.
Attorney General A. M. Munson
explained that it was desirable to be
able to discipline officers without the
publicity attendant upon suspensions,
and explained "that a right of uppeul
to himself existed. R. H. Pooley and
H. DeBpard Twigg suggested that
few officers would cure to appeal
over the heads of their superiors, but
Mr. ManBon stated that, as the sup-
reintendent was required to report
directly to him the detail of ull disciplinary steps, the Mnister would review these incidents without the necessity of a formal appeal, anyway.

SOUND"
Victrola
New in principle
New in design
New in construction
New in musical results
One hearing of the new Orthophonic Victrola will change
your whole conception of music in the home, in spite of all that the
world has had to offer up to this time.
Hearing is necessary because description is inadequate.
When you hear it we suggest that you note particularly how the bass
"stands out" and gives a naturalness and fulness to the reproduction.
That is the quality which is almost entirely absent from all other
forms of reproduced music; and so it affords the most specific and
the most obvious evidence of the great improvement which has been
effected.
The principles which produced this fundamental development affect the whole range of performance. Note, for instance, the
clarity and definition of each "voice" whether instrumental or vocal.
These qualities appear as they have never appeared before; and
throughout the whole performance there is a roundness and a resonance wholly new.
The Orthophonic Victrola increases the range of musical vibrations audible in reproduced music, and gives to each its proportional value. To do this requires a large opening for outlet and
a scientifically designed amplifying system which is now employed
for the first time in the history of the art.

made the announcement in a carefully prepared and very effective
way, notifying each agent by wire
and giving their advertising instructions in a very definitely worded
manner that will give uniformity to
the announcement all over the country. The advertisement is found on
another page in this issue.
Thc price reduction, tho extent of
which will not be learned till the first
week in January, is made effective
from Tuesday last, and refund is to
be made on all pales made since that
time to the extent of the price reduction, when the amount is made
known.    There is no doubt but that
this step will result in a very considerable impetus being given to
Dodge sales throughout the country
for next season's delivery.

CHRISTMAS SHOPPING
PERHAPS more people are doing their Christinas
shopping early than are generally supposed.
People shop differently in these days than in the
past. Merchants have made it a pleasure for people
to do shopping.
One need only watch the people that linger
in front of the display windows every pleasant evening to know that the first steps to the Christmas
shopping are being taken.
Added to this window display for the accommodation of shoppers are the many helpful suggestions made through the advertising columns of the
newspapers.
Every modem and up-to-date store is an invitation to shop early. One only need look into a
window in a casual way to sec a standing invitation
to shop there now. And the attractive bargains
enumerated in large display advertisements are helping to make decisions.
Christmas shopping is more of a pleasure and
less of a task these latter days because merchants
have made shopping easier and have provided means
whereby people might investigate and deliberate for
several weeks in advance of Christinas. And this
is another advantage

Hardly was this scandal exposed
when a new one cropped up when
Jack Shannon, a leading worker for
the Liberal party in the Grand Forks
by-election, told how four cabinet
ministers interfered in the issuance
of beer licenses in Vancouver by
promising that he should have a license as a return for his services in
the by-election. He failed to get
his license because W. T. McArthur,
a big figure in the Vancouver Liberal
organization, notified the government that he was in charge of deciding who should have licenses in Vancouver.

There is on the order paper a
resolution in the name of C. P. Davis
demanding a committee investigation
of the government's relations with
the breweries, the reasons for the
remarkable increase in the price paid
by thc government for beer just on
the eve of the last election, and the
refusal to entertain a lower price
offered by the Nanaimo brewery.
Six weeks of the session have gone
by and the government has yet to
bring down its P.G.E. legislation, its
municipal amendments, its taxation
act amendments, and the legislation
arising from the deliberation of the
committees on mining, agriculture
and forestry. Opposition members
are determined to consider these proposals fully whether or not the house
idjourns by Christmas, a consummation which the government is striving
vigorously to bring about.

"THE ANCIENT HIGHWAY" IS PRETTY STORY
OF LOVE & ADVENTURE
After adventure all over the world,
Clifton Brant returns to his native
town along the St. Lawrence River
to beat up Ivan Hurd, a millionaire
paper manufacturer who ruined
Cliff's father and caused his death.
The fight has been witnessed by a
beautiful girl, Antoinette St. Ives.
She telephones him that Hurd is on
his way with the police to have him
arrested. Cliff takes to " the ancient
highway," which leads through romantic rural districts with magnificent scenery. Later he meets Antoinette and falls in love with her.
Brant tells Antoinette of his love,
and his ardor frightens her and she
repulses him, though she is really in
love with him.
Cliff learns that Hurd has been
making unwelcome love to the girl
Antoinette derives her income from
the Laurentian Paper Company, a
competitor of Hurd's, and the latter
has been trying by every fair and
foul means to run the Laurentian
Company to the wall to get Antoinette for himself. Brant resolves to
frustrate him and goes into the Lumber Company, getting a job with the
Laurentian outfit
Matters reach their climax in the
spring drive of logs. If the Laurentian people can get their logs to the
St. Lawrence, they are saved.
Though all hands work hard to free
a jam, it seems impossible, until
Brant determines to dynamite it at a
crucial point. He has fired the
charge, with the help of Bolden, his
assistant, when he sees that Bolden
has slipped and is caught in the logs
near the dynamite. Cliff rushes
back and rescues Bolden just as the
dynamite explodes. Antoinette runs
out over the logs to him. She takes
him into her arms and to her house.
There, while he is barely conscious,
she pours out her love for him and
has a priest marry them.

KIMBERLEY BARRISTER
CALLED TO CALGARY
BY DEATH OF SISTER
The following, taken from the Calvary Herald of last Thursday, refers
to the death of Miss Lilly, of that
eity, a sister of Mr. Arthur Lilly, of
KImherley. Mr. Lilly left Kimberley for Calgary hurriedly last week
on receipt ot the news of his sister's
death.
News ef the sadden death, on
Wednesday morning, of Miss Edythe
Lilly, daughter of A. E. Lilly, Esq.,
came as a great shock to her wide
circle of friends here, and the sheerest sympathy Is being extended
to her family In their bereavement,
Miss Lilly was one of the most popular members of Calgary's social
circles, and the deep regret which
is felt at her loss is a tribute to the
many kindly qualities which made
her such a valued friend.
In spite of the fact that she had
been something of an invalid all her
life, Miss Lilly was one of the most
active workers of the Girl's Hospital
Aid, of which she was president for
more than five years, and her ready
sympathy and untiring efforts on be

Imposter Up At Fernie
(Fernie Free Press)
Albert Bradshaw, a young Englishman of many aliases, was arrested
in Cranbrook on a warrant issued in
Fernie, last Friday afternoon, just
as he emerged from the registrar's
offlce, where he had secured a license to marry a Crnnbrook girl,
whom he hoaxed into believing he
was a millionaire and hired her as his
private secretary," a position he had
given her to understand would pay
her $350 per month. This will likely be the last of his impostures, how
ever, as he made the mistake of leaving a board bill unpaid when he decided to leave Fernie. While here,
Bradshaw went under the alias of E.
Sheely and posed aB a moving picture
scenario writer and very wealthy.
He also showed two bank pnss books
showing deposits of $8000 in each.
These, however, Chief Anderson soon
discovered hnd been made out by
Bradshaw. He was remanded for

ARTICLE No. 11
We cannot all hold good cards but we
all can hold our tempers. Miiny a game
and rubber is lost by bad temper, an inexcusable fault from every angle. The
writer sawthis well exemplified tlie other
night. Two fairly good players had cut
together for several rubbers and were
not only holding bad cards but nlso getting bad "breaks." After several such
hands, one of the players loot his temper completely and began to blame his
partner for their bad luck. This naturally didn't help so they went from bail to
worse. Finally, after one band in which
a very bad and unexpected "break" of
cards caused a big loss, the hot tempered player said: "Well, partner, I
have lost all confidence in yotl." The
very next hand, the partner nude an
informatory double but the hot tempered one refused to bid, saying: "I
know very well what you want me to
do but I'll be hanged if I follow your
ignorant orders." As a result of this
childish loss of temper their opponents
went fame and rubber. Don't allow
yourself to lose your temper at the card
tabic There's no better way lo lose not
only your money but also your friends.
Several of the hands that caused this
strong dilTerence of opinion, were rather
interesting and instructive.

There are no trumps and Z is in the
lead. How can YZ so play the hand
that they will win five of the eight tricks
against any defense? The solution of
this problem has already been given but
a possible defense by B waa suggested
for analysis. At trick one, Z should play
the king of clubs and Y should play the
seven. / should then follow with the
seven of spades. A should win this trick
with the king. It was suggested that A
should now play the king of hearts and
followjwith the nine. If Z plays the six
of hearts on A's king, and wins the
second round of heart* with the ten.
YZ can only win four tricks for Z wdl
have to lead diamonds to B's hand.
When A leads the king of hearts, Z
should play the ten of hearts and win
the second round of hearts with the
3ueen. He should then play the king of
iamonds and lead a low heart. A must
win this trick with the jack of hearts.
No matter what he now leads, Y must
make his queen of clubs and queen of
ipsdea This variation is very instructive and should bs carefully noted. Play
It out and notice tha proper play by A
andZ.

Mrs. J. E. Scanland and Mrs. John
Lawson were joint hostesses on Friday evening,  at the  home of Mrs.
Lawson,  at  a miscellaneous shower
given in honor of Miss V. Corbett,
of the school staff, who will be married    shortly    in    Victoria.    About
thirty friends of the bride elect were
present,   and   by   a  series   of   well
planned events Miss Corbett walked
in on the party, to the strains of the
wedding  march  as  played  by  Mrs.
Vic  Lundbum,  and  was  completely
surprised.    The    hostesses    of    thc
evening soon had the guests embarked upon a novel memory contest, the
prize for which was awarded to Mrs.
G. W. Donahoe.   The party then adjourned to the dining room, and the
real  surprise  of  the  evening  came
when a gaily decorated basket, laden
with the numerous gifts, was borne
in and placed before Miss Corbett.
After a jolly hour or so of unwrapping and  examination,   lunch   was
served, the tables were prettily decorated with flowers and grape vines.
During the supper the usual "toast!)
to  the  bride" were  called for and
puny. and varied indeed were the
responses.    The guests then returned
to the parlor and each called upon
for a stunt.    The hit of the evening
was made by Mrs. Jack Trainor, with
her little recitation,  against which
no one dared compete.   Guests invited included Mesdames J. \%* Scan

A selection was heard on the radio
the other evening entitled "Cicero."
The only Cicero of whom we have
heard is the son of Mutt in the cartoons.
Fred Jones received a badly smashed finger last week, on Wednesday
morning -. when employed driving a
team in the lumber yard. It is
thought he caught his finger in tho

member has now taken a turn for
the better.
Two of the government drivers
of Fernie motored to Wardner on
