5-1 ions, as compared with I,-

months of 1024. In that
of 1025 the company's mines
produced l,,0 00,010 tons, as com*
pared with 1,054.253 tons in the
samo period of 1924. Thp remainder of the tonnage came from Independent shippers.
"In 1025 production of metals will

111,420 tons; zinc, 88,050 tons; copper, 050 Ions; gold, 21,862 ounces;
silver,  4,307,455  ounces.
"The comparative 1024 production was; Lead, 80,700 tons; zinc,
27,44:1 tons; copper, 601 tons; gold,
26,076 ounces; silver 4,074,044
"In 1025 lead concentrates carrying 6001 tons of recoverable lead
were exported. In 1024 zinc con-
centrales carrying 0061 tons of recoverable zinc were exported. In
1024 zinc concentrates carrying 18,-
060 tons of recoverable zinc were
exported. The lead refinery and
zinc reduction works have now sufficient capacity to treat all available
lead and zinc concentrates.
"Developments in the mines are
encouraging, except at Roslnnd. The
plants have been well maintained
ami are in a state of high efficiency.
"There have been suggestions that
the directors should make more fre-
quent statements of earnings than
once a year. Monthly earnings vary
so much, however, that if so given
more, rather than less, uncertainty
and speculation might follow.
"Since the inception of the company the practice has been to have
the annual report show very fully
the whole position of the company
with tiie two-fold object of enabling
the shareholders to review the past
year's operations, and to forecast
(subject to uncontrollable developments) .the current year's probabilities. A departure from this policy
might produce results not entirely in
the interests of shareholders. The
board proposes discussing this with
the shareholders at the annual meeting."

parliament opened on December 80th,
with Hon. J. D. Maclean, minister of
education, acting as lieutenant-governor. Dr. Mael.ean read the
"speech from the throne." which Indicated ihut a huge number of important measures would be brought
forward, in tho presence of a large

The following in regard to the B.C.
Solarium, for crippled children, in
which the Women's Institute has interested itself, is taken from the
Victoria Daily Times, and will be
read with interest:
"Those who read the newspapers
will understand by this time what
a solarium is and the purpose it
serves. There is now to be an opportunity for the people of this Province to furnish $50,000 for an institution of this kind. Mill Bay is
the site selected for it and competent
authority declares that spot to be
the most favored in all Canada. That
is to say, conditions there, sunlight,
air, and bathing facilities—the three
prime factors In heliotherapy treatment—will lend themselves admirably to successful operations.
"This project is an innovation in
Canada, Switzerland led the way under Rollier. Britain followed under
Gauvain. The Women's Institute of
British Columbia are responsible for
launching the solarium for thir Dominion. The members of those
bodies urge the people of the Province to give freely and help the little
cripples on the road to health. Nat-
rual elements are to be harnessed in
their behalf. Surely thii
manltorlan work that will appeal to
everybody. Ten cents per capita
of our population would raise the

Burial Under Masonic Auspices; Last Rites Attended

The funeral of the late Fred A.

no,,n   last,   and   it    was   fitting   that
there should he represent itlon from
many different points in ihe district,
and many organizations as well as

Further particulars of the recent
fire at Radium Hot Springs, Sinclair
Canyon, show that the origin of the
fire is slilt unknown. The occupants
barely escaped with their lives The
fire started at about 1 1.30 p.m.. ami
the first Intimation was when a lady
awakened, bearing what she took lo
lie groans from one of the rooms on
the lower floor. On opening her
room door she was confronted by a
loud of smoke and immediately ar-
used those in the building.
The hotel had just been completed,
though in use fur more than two
years, and was owned and operated
by John s. Blakley. Ai ihe time of
the fire there was some eight persons
i ihe building besides two children
f the proprietor.
In addition to the hotel, which was
frame structure, a store adjoining
owned by Mr. Blakley was burnt, together with entire contents. Tin1
loss Is estimated at about (15,000,
which is partly covered by insurance.
It is expected that Mr. Blakley
will rebuild, as his hotel was very
popular with the motoring public.
On Tuesday evening next, when
the Odd Fellows and Rebekahs of this
city are journeying to Kimberley to
take part in a joint installation ceremony, a special train will convey
the party from this city to their
destination. It will leave Cranbrook

Kimberley to return at about 1.30.
In connection with this special train
it is expected that the entire train
crew will be made up of Odd Fellows.
Tickets for the trip will be available | quietly
a day or two before, nnd it is expected that there will be a big turnout of members for the excursion.
At the public installation of officers of the four lodges, which will be
the first official undertnk:ng of Sullivan Lodge in their new hall, Odd
Fellows and their wives, and Rebekahs and their husbands have been
invited. A suciul time will follow
the lodge work of the evening, and
expected this will be followed

are anticipating a very peasant time,
and it is hoped that this event will

between the lodges of the two towns
than has existed in the post.

presumably most people will interpret into a general sense of satisfaction with the conduct of the present
incumbents in the various rfhVes.
There is a possibility at the present
time that Mayor Roberts may go
back into office by acclamation,
which would he the first time such
ut has occurred for many
years. The name of A. J. Balment
ontlnues to be mentioned in this
regard, but up to this time he hat
made no announcement of his intentions, though no doubt he would
itrong a candidate as it would
be possible to bring out against
Mayor Roberts. There is a feeling
that if Mr. Balment has decided not
to run for the mayoralty he should ,
at least allow his name to go up for
f the vacancies un the city \
council, where he was :i member for
many years before becoming
mayor up to a year ago.
Alderman Flowers, who ha
ready served seven terms on the city I dition
council, is going to allow his name !
to go up again, but the other two
Idermen are retiring on account of
being out of town so much, these
being Aldermen Genest and Dunlop.
Mr. Balment's name has also been
mentioned in connection with the
vacancy on tiie police commission,
but it is not known yet what he will !
do in this regard. .Mr. A. .Shank-
land, the commissioner v. hose term
is expiring, states that he will again

the same two, who have both been
persuaded t<> run again, but
neither are particularly anxious to
assume the hoard duties again,
though it is considered both have
served the interests of the ratepay-
qulte well. Whether there will
be any further nominations remains
to be seen on  Monday.
One step for which the city council and the school board deserve
some commendation is seen in this
issue, when an attempt has been
made to place in a concise form
some statement of their finances he-
fore the ratepayers. The mayor has
also made a thorough explanation of
the by-laws which are to be voted on
Thursday next, along with the polling for candidates, and those should
be read with interest by every ratepayer who will have to cunt a
vote on Thursday.

New Year's Day the Cranbrook
annual dog derby took place, when
many spectators witnessed the contest for canine speed supremacy on
Baler Street. These races which
have been sponsored for 'he last two
year by his Worship Mayor Roberts,
assisted by other public spirited citizens, proved very interesting. The
race on New Year's Day. possibly for
lack of practice in running on the
part of the dogs, was not as .•successful as the one held last year, the
dogs being more inclined to "rough
it up" than tn be fir>' for
the line.    It is to be hoped thai the
will endeavor to so train iheir  and  Mis.  II,
dogs that they will attend more to
the principal business of the day and
have the fighting for other occa-
slons. The race wus run in three
heats,  the   first  being won   bv Jack

There are possibly few, if any,

These have Mime conception of the
suffering which the people of that
country have had to boar. Those,
however, who hud the privilege Sunday, either at the Baptist or Anglican

manner which will doubtless be

Mr. Fred Small, then in better health,
than he had known for many years,

work. Both speakers came possessed of the fullest authority to represent people than whom there are
surely no uthers who have any greater claim to our interest and support,
passing, as they are at this time,
through their darkest  hour.
While both speakers followed I
along about the same lines the report given here is that of Mr Par-1
ounagian in the United Church on
Sunday evening.
Iii his address here the speaker,]
after interesting preliminary remarks dealing with his name and his
cuming ti» America as well 8J paying
tribute to what the English speaking
people hud done for hil runntry,
launched Into his subject, giving the
early   history   of   that   mountainous
 intry   of   western   Axia,   which,
though not now nationally existing,
is of groat historical interest, it being
the sent of one of the oldest civilized peoplos of the world.
They received Christianity an early
iiH the 2nd century, being the first
to accept that faith, and their unflagging devotion to it has been the
cause of all their persecution. They
hnve never ceased to fight in defence
of the faith, the history of Armenia
being but the history of loyalty to
Jesus Christ and of martrydom in
consequence thereof. Its geographical location has caused it to be the
desired tool of other nations and had
she wished to renounce her faith in
Christ and accepted Mahommedan-
ism she could have had anything she
wished. He spoke of the feeling of
the Mahommedans to the christians
and said that while today there might
be a desire to gild it over and to
accentuate some of its supposed
virtues the heart of Mahommedanism
was still the same. They butchered
the Christians; before that they butchered the Greeks. In 1774-78 the
Balkans butchered the Macedonians.
The (list article of Treaty of Berlin was, to the speaker, but a club
to obtain a railway and oil concessions from the Turks. The birthright
of the Armenians had really been
sold for a mess of potage. He showed how politics had played to the disadvantage of Armenia, and how
through it all, Armenia, though being the recipient of many tempting
offers, had not wavered. While not
wishing to detract from the glory
coming to Belgium for its part in
the great war, he could not help but
advance the claim of Armenians for
the important part they had played
mandate of Armenia, which she re
fused, and which Canada accepted
the speaker said that Canada's action made him proud, but he depreciated the fact that Canada was not
permitted to take up the mandate.
To-day the Armenians were without
Out of the four millions 'hey had lost
one and a half million, to say nothing
of the great  property loss.
With regard to the offer made to
the I'nited States to take over the
a country, scattered all over Europe.
Great Britain's attempts tn force
the Dardenel.es was a mistake. He
could not understand why Great
Britain made such a blunder. With
much feeling he asked what would
have been the result had Armenia
for a few months renounced Christianity during the war? Instead, they
lost one and a half million people
of the church, the same religion, with the same scripture as we—
all butchered. The spirit of loyally
dominated all. Young girls even at
the sentence of burning n* the
stake would not renounce the faith.
We think in ntnazement of the cruelty of Nero in the first century, but
are more or less callous to the very
same thing being enacted in the
twentieth. He referred to a letter
which he had just got from his
mother-iinjlaw in Constantinople,
telling of the death of his sister for
refusing to give up. Armenia had
sacrificed for others. The 57 out
of the 100,000 Armenians from Verdun hnd been promised freedom for
Armenia, and what had she got?
Many times have politics operated
against the interests of Armenia.
When Great Britain was to be given
Silesia to protect Armenia, France
disagreed, for which she got railway
and oil concessions. * The United
States had sold amunilinn to the
French after the Armistice si that
she could work against British diplomacy in Asia Minor. Turkey gain-
ed control at Lausanne. With regard
to the war he claimed that General
Ludenorf in his book states that in
his opinion Armenia had shortened
He poignantly asked his hearers
the war by three years.
what that might possibly have meant
to them in dear ones saved The
speaker referred to the work that
they were doing for the bettsrment
of the Armenian boys and girls and
what a small amount of money given
to the cause in the bringing up of
one of these boys meant. $5.00 a
month, or $(10 per year, was sufficient
to take care of one boy.

The weekly meeting of the Lumberton Club was held last Thursday

The trick bidder seems to be flourish'
iii« latch-, for a number of hands have
been submitted a-examples of the value
of truk bids. '1 lieec may be all right for
tdc gambling t\;>r of players but the
writer prefers the Bound, conventional
bids, bids that really inform. There is
no system of bidding that ran hold Its
own with a system that gives exact information at ail times, information that
realty informs. The bidding, if conventional, should "mirror" one's hand tn
one's partner, h should give Information that will enable partner to act intelligently In his subsequent bidding.
The goal of all bidding «*t auction is to
arrive at the best bid of the coi mined
hands, that is the best bid of twenty-
six cards, not of thirteen. A player who
uses trick bids may confuse his opponents occasionally but in the long
i un, be loses mote by loss of faith of his
partner in the soundness of his bids,
than he can possibly gain by his trick
bidding, A partnership to be successful,
either in business or auction, must be
founded on mutual trust and i onfidence.
For that reason,, be reliable at all times.
Let your bids mean what \uu say.
"Every advertised feature a sacred
pledge," is not only a good motto for
business men but also fi >r auct Ion players. Learn the conventional bids and
stick to them. Be reliable, lirbt, last and
all the time.
In the following hand, the tricky
bidder won out but his gain on that
hand has mure than been offset by loss
of confidence of his partner, There's

regarding the doings of the session

other influences than the strength of
its own party. The independents
and Labor men stayed by the government pretty well, except on one
notable occasion, in the vote as to
the Pacific Great Eastern relief bill,
in which some of the other parties
voted with the Conservatives, including Mr. Woodward, one of the Liberal members for Vancouver City.

This week has seen many officials
kept busy with the issuance of licenses of various descriptions. At the government building there has been the
issue of the li)2(i motor licenses to
attend to, and the few motorists
whose cars are still on the streets
with 11125 licenses will be well ad
vised to take chances no longer.
There are some slight changes being
made this year in the registration of
the cars and the issue of drivers' licenses that the government has con-
sidered necessary. Since the weight
of the cars has a considerable bearing on the cost of the license, it is
probable that the two big passenger
busses on the Kimberley road, operated by Brown's Stage Line, pay the
biggest individual fees, their licenses
for the two cars running well over
three figures. In the liquor store
it has also been a busy time issuing
permits for the year, while varl-
Last week the temperature nt Calgary was 16 below zero. Cranbrook
was still enjoying mild weather at
the time, with the thermometer
scarcely showing below the freezing
ark. Not in many years has there
been such a mild winter known here
the present one, though its one
drawback so far has been the lack of
adequate snow, which besides hindering operations in the lumber camps,
would also mean that the ground
would lack adequate moisture for
next ytar's crops. But there is plenty of time for this condition to be
remedied, and the snow fall this
week is an indication that there may
be lots more to come.
Municipal Elections
In complinnce with the request of a large number
of Electors I am placing myself before you for re-election
as Mayor of the Cily for the ensuing year.
Should you honor me with a renewal of the confidence you placed in me twleve months ago, it will be my
endeavor to continue that policy which animated last
year's administration — a policy which permits economy
to work hand in hand with efficiency, the success of which
was due chiefly to the loyal support I received from every
member of the Council.

progress that' had been made by even
the smallest boys in their physical
drill, which has been carried on under physical instructor Lee. In addition to these exercises tho boys
played an exhibition game of indoor
buseball. The elder members of the
association, and there was no age
limit set for the players, had a session of basket ball under th? respective leaderships of Mr. Chester and
Mr. Reg. Bavni. This ended in a tie,
ten goals being scored. The members of the Boy Scout company present were under command of Scout

"Km-, Miss—Miss Dale, please
don't be angry," he begged miner-
ably. She hesitated, resting the rim
of her tray on a far corner of the
table, and looked at him steadily.
"My rudeness came from—my surprise at seeing anyone so nice as
you in this place, after all these
"You are not a native, then?" she
asked in a forgiving, tentatively interested way, after a brief scrutiny.
Bob shook his head negatively
and started to put sugar cubes in his
coffee. He felt on terms of good
fellowship with the whole wide
world, the June scents of which
wafted through the open windows a
lulling message of awakened, sun-
nourished things. The distilling
forces of an artful nature were at
work with rolled-up sleeves on the
second growth enthusiasms in Bob's
"I hope that after you've seen
more of me here you won't mind if
I ask you—if 1 want you to—if I
ask you to be friends," he ventured,
continuing to put sugar cubes into
his coffee.
"Is that a ttireat or a promise?"
she laughed, genuinely amused by
his cautious approach.
lob laughed, too. They had a
second laugh then, together. Miss
Trisk, who had not missed a trick,
did not laugh; nor did Bramley. The
one looked jealous; the other, resigned. Their opportunity for hilarity came within a minute, though,
when a wild-eyed call boy dashed into the room, came to a disgusted and
panting stop when he spotted Bob
and the waitress, who were lost to
all superficial influences, then advanced towanl them and spoke sarcastically.
"Wilson, I've seaiched all over
for you. Morran's going to send
your train out with a sub if you ain't
there in half a shake. He's down
in the yard chewin' an oil can now,
and six-inch sparks is comin' outen
his eyes. 1 wouldn't want to be in
your shoes.    Sign here, please!"
Hob gasped in panic as he saw the
time. Twenty minutes to eight!
Ten minutes past the scheduled start
of his run. He signed the call book,
Jumped up, smiled at Caroline and
hurried away. The memory of the
look of concern on her face—as
though she were fearful that, somehow, it was all her fault and that he
would get into trouble on account of
her—stopped him at the door. He
went back, shook hands with her,
then departed—all in a laughing, excited, happy rush that even the expectation of being struck by Bolts'
....bul lightning could not despoil.
'' I Luckily, his day's job was on a local
freight, and while a delay was serious
enough ii was not vital or unforgivable.
In the whirlwind of his departing
wake Caroline Dale stood looking
with a guilty yet happy smile at the
table ho had vacated and the breakfast he had left untouched but for
the single bite of waffles that had
been, well—the cause of it all! A
soggy, dank pyramid of sugar, the
entire contents of the sugar crock
which Hub had absent-mindedly
transferred piece by piece into his
coffee cup, was a sweet monument
to the gay havoc she had wrought
upon his mental processes.
"llee, kid, you're a fast worker!",
complimented Miss Trisk, back-
haudedly a tittle later. "You're the
first one who ever vamped Boh Wilson into looking as though he knew
that such things as girls existed in
this here mortal plane."
"Vamped him, why what do you
mean?" said Caroline, aggrieved.
"That's your line, huh—sweet
baby innocence—budding daughter
asking mama 'how do vats get kittens' stuff. And yet, I've known
others to pull that pose on him and
never get past his jumper buckles."
Caroline swam deftly aside from
the current of Miss TriskV superannuated sex lore. "Is that his name
—Bob Wilson?"
"Righto, rutey—but the rpst of
the family statistics! I can't give
you," «he volunteered cattily. "He's
been the Elinor Glyn mystery of this
burg so long we ain't hoping no more
to solve it,"
Now   Caroline   was   young,   re-
town and its sweaty, swearing   ci

about Bob constituted n bi

rather rough. She could feel a racing of hot blood to her cheeks; for
the rest, however, she was able to
meet Miss Trisk's narrowed eyes on
a cool level.
Then I think he deserves all the
credit in the world for staying and
living down his past!" she maintained  bravely.
Admiration for the girl's steadfastness in her interest softened
Miss Trisk's mood; admiration, and
a keen sense of the communal debt
to Bob Wilson.
"He saved the Limited Mail one
night, and after that it wasn't no
trick for him to get a job around
here, for he stood aces high with the
trainmen, and the homefollta too, because, believe me, thero'd have been

Gee, they'd have given him the keys
to the city," she finished with an
attempt ut humor to cover a panicky
realization that it was her own emotions that were In full cry now,
"only it wasn't locked, and there
ain't no key for it anyhow."
Caroline felt unaccountably proud
of this man she had met but once,
and then in a business way. Meanwhile, Miss TriskV mood had undergone a complete change. Perhaps it was the fragrant outdoor
breeze that had touched her thin
cheeks, too; but to her it carried, instead of pubescent impulses, only reminiscent echoes coming hollow!;.

The Liberal party will face parliament without
its leader, without a majority and without a program.
The government simply awaits the decision of the Progressives to decide whether it can carry on or must
band over the retns to Mr. Meighen. On October 29th
the elector* kindly relieved the Liberal party of its
leader and a number of Its weakest ministers. With a
few possible exceptions the Progressive members have
no confidence in Mr. Mackenzie King. Very few western Liberals, If they at all represent the western spirit,
have confidence in the leadership of the premier. The
defeat of the Liberal party was due in a greater measure
to the wavering vacillating and wobbling course pursued
by the premier than to any other single factor. Under
such leadership there Is little hope for genuine
Liberalism,—Grain  Growers'  Guide.
A former Canadian premier was right
observed that there is nothing quite so uncertain as a
horse race and a general election, and In no constituency
in Canada was the truth of the oldtime saying more
strikingly demonstrated than in West Kootenay wheiv
the Farmer Labor candidate went to the polls with a
majority of 800 gained in 1921, and the prospect of
getting the support of almoBt 1200 Liberal votes cast in
the same election, and at the close of the polls found
himself defeated by a plurality of 900.
Of the winner it can be said that he likes parliamentary life and has the time at his disposal to keep
himself well informed as to his constituents' and the
country's needs, and his natural ability and previous parliamentary experience certainly justifies the belief that
he will keep West Kootenay on the map both in and out
tif parliament as occasion demands.—Creston Review.
We'd like to know why the Canadian post office
department cannot decide upon a color for a stamp of a
certain denomination and stick to it. Changing colors
every little while is most confusing. We have green and
yellow 1-cent stamps; green 2-cent stamps; brown or
maroon .{-cent stamps and 7-cent stamps; blue and ma-
toon 5-cent and 8-cent stamps and blue 10-cent stamps.
It must make our postmasters and their assistants dizzy
in the head trying to keep track of the frequent changes
and their stamp accounts correct.—Kelowna Courier.

Miss McDonald had but one shot to

Funeral of Late F. A. Small
Saturday Afternoon Last
(Continued from Page One)
fulness becomes a virtue, Ihe power
of which cannot be estimated. One
could not converse with Fred Small
and be a pessimist. Cheerfulness radiated from him—the sensible, natural kind, that is a part of the disposition, and which makes itself felt in
quite a tangible' way.
Perhaps this was the reason the
children liked him. They played in
his yard and talked to him with no
sense of fear, and be seemed glad to
have them round. That he took
pleasure in the company of friends
many can testify to, from enjoyment
hail in social gatherings at bis home.
In his work he was coi.scientious,
taking seriously the many widely
varied duties which his office entailed upon him. He shirked nothing,
appeared to do everything thai had
to be done with thoroughness, and
from his unbounded faith in the district, anil its possibilities, which came
from the added knowledge he gained
of its resources, sprang an optimism
which gave rise to a belief which he
had that this district hail still ahead
of it a great future.
Perhaps it is natural that he made
many friends nnd few enemies.
Genuine men usually do. Talking
with Mr. Fred Small, one knew there
was nothing concealed, and no cross
purposes. Frankness was in his
words and in his manner, making
sincerity one of the outstanding features of his character, along with his
cheerful manner.
After many years, when the going
had been anything but smooth for
him; when in a degree it seemed that
some things of a material nature to
which all normnlly ambitious men
may properly aspire, were about
to come his way—he is cut ofT, removed from the sphere of things
mundane to that of things terrestial.
Why it should be so, many of his
friends might well ask, and while the
answer is beyond anyone, wrapped
up in the Infinite wisdom of Providence, there is at least the sense left
lhat to huve known him lias been a
privilege, and a life that leaves such
memories behind it has not of a
surety been lived in vain.
Friends who were looking for the
time when they could see him ut the
hospital, to congratulate him on
recovery, had instead to silently pay
their homage as he lay silently in
death, that common visitant alike of
the homes of the high and lowly, the
rich and the poor.

Ever since- that lime, some years ago now, when the land if he has brought friond wit'
West was discovered hy the Kast as the most likely '•*" v,B|t tlinmrh many a man 1;:'
place to amass a fortune In the briefest possible time,
and the simple words, "Go West, young man!" were
the best advice a parent could give a son; well, ever
since that time, the young man who heeded tho advice
has been couilng back Kast ut least once a year, and
thut once is generally Christmas.
Perhaps the young man has amassed no great fortune; perhaps tie luus; and perhaps again he lias fared
rather ill; but in any event he usually find:; that as
Christmas draws near, recollections ar his ahlldhood,
hds Christmas Blocking, the tree at home, the plum-
pudding or the turkey and cranberries, constitute too
powerful a memory to negate. And because these
renolteeiions are so potent, transportation companies
operate special services to handle what they call the
Christmas tiafric.
This year the crop has been extremely good; money
will be more free in the West than tor (some time past.
The season's work is done and the Westerner will have
lota or time on his hands. If he has lew financial worries he may spend quite some time in the Kast; there
lis much to attract hitn. There is the social life in the
big hotels, where all Is luxurious comfort; winter sports
mich as hockey, skiing, skating, sleigh riding and tobogganing to indulge la. or to watch, if he so prefers, the
round of the theatres to make, where lie will hear the, ..... „,,
tunes that will lie popular for the year, or see the plays be effectl.

However, from every angle, Die Beacon in tin East
is rich ami pleasant. That side of tho continent \a a
magnet for holiday Keekers and it Is at that particular
time that the ancient provinces reclaim their son:-*, if
only for the briefest of visits. This year ft will bava
visitors galore.
Tho Canadian Pacific Railway announce that many
Inquiries and requests for reservations have already
been made at their agencies throughout woatern Canada. This would Indicate the likelihood of a huge
volume of traffic moving In an easterly direction this
December. A portion of it will no doubt move straight
through to the British Isles and the continent, as many
settlers are originally from those places. The Canadian Pacific will run special trains from all western
centres, connecting directly with their Atlantic liners,
sailing from the- winter port of Saint John. N.B., to all
the larger ports in northern Europe,
But Ihe great porlinn of the traffic will be pointed
for Eastern Canada and the company will faeilltaie its
movement by offering special train Bcrvfces and special
tourist cars lhat will obviate the necessity of change at
any point along the route, and further than this, special excursion rates will he given. These conditions
will prevail from December 6th lo January 6th, and will

morning last for the new term. Many
children who were absent last term
through the sickness epidemic have
now resumed their studios.
The vaudeville troupe known as
"The Empire Entertainers," arrived
in Wyclilfe on Saturday's afternoon
train from Kimberley to give a performance in the Amusement Club,
but owing to the lateness of the advertising, there were not enough people turned out to make it worth while
to put on the show, which was unfortunate, as we have so few of these
opportunities, The artistes consisted of .Air. and Mrs. Robert MacGill,
Miss Jean MacGill, Mr. and Mrs. Earl
May, Mr. and Mrs. C. E. Smith and
Wm. Cooke.
A bunch of the hoys went by car
tn Kimberley last Monday night, th.
occasion being to give Mr. and Mrs.
Everett Staples a good old fashioned
charivari. The wishes from all Wycliffe go out to them in their new
sphere of life.
Tho local sawdust league opened
Ihe hockey season on Monday night
with a game between the Bearcats
and Radlolaa, the Bearcats winning
after a good clean game hy three
goals to two. South and Dillen showed good form for the Bearcats, and
Bourgeois and Do Foe for the Ra-
diolas. Referee Piper officiated in
his usual able manner, and there
were no arguments. The winners
play the Sheiks Tuesday, when a
good game is expected.
Trainmen's  Ball  Big   Success

favored with two selections on
the violin which were in themselves
worth going a long way to hear.
That Cranbrook is possessed of an
artist like Mr. Padberg U something
of which she might well he prom
and Mr. Robinson's sympathetic a
companimont was also appreciated in
those  numbers.
The choice of chairman for the
afternoon was Indeed a happy one,
for it would hardly be possible to
find one other with a keener interest in music or with a greater appreciation of it than Mr. Alan Graham. While on many occasions

The twentieth annual ball given by
the B. of R.T. on Now Year's Eve,
went over big, as it always does, being probably tho largest attended
dance of the year. People were present from every point in Ihe Kooten-
ays, and the crowd was such that if
Sunday afternoon the Star Theatre
was practically filled to capacity
with the number of citizens who were
present and enjoyed a function possibly new to Cranbrook,-- a "Twilight Recttnl," This wns given by
Messrs Theodore Padberg and Bruce
Robinson and their pupils in violin
and pianoforte and wns, as was the
concensus of opinion, a musica' treat.
While it is generally the case that
on occasions of this kind when youg-jdl
or pupils are performing they do hut
not show up to their host advantage,
this time there need be no nppolo-
gies, as each performer's number
wns thoroughly appreciated.
The program was opened by the
violin chorus which, considering it
was an especially impromptu organization, rendered two selections in
a manner which spoke volumes for
the performers and especially their
leader and instructor, Mr. Padberg.
The pleasure given by this number
and more particularly the closing
number, which was also given ry the
violin chorus, should be the means
of rousing a greater interest in the
study of the violin and the development of the string orchestra. It is
but a short time ago that liberal
support was begrudged by no one
and in the opinion of ninny it would
be distinctly to the city's advantage
that it should be renewed, now that
we have teachers in the city capable
of successfully performing the required duties.

Empire Entertainers, comprising Miss
Marie Dahl, solo saxophonist, Earl
May, comedian; Miss Ruth Mnlho,
comedian; Hob MacGill, Scotch comedian; Miss Mary Sutherland, pianist, and ('has. Ed. Smith, vaudeville,
Owing to short notice of the entertainment, the crowd was not as large
as usual, although a goodly number
turned out from Wardner, Hull River
and Jaffray. The show people put
their numbers over in good fashion
and fully came up to their advertisers . t» iii n...-(.™i««j I nients of plenty of mirth, melody and

showing promise of a fine hockey
team for the winter if someone experienced in the game can be coaxed
to take charge and get down to business. That shouldn't be a hard job

jazz numbers in a snappy manner.
Altogether it was considered one of
the best shows over put on in Wardner, and was deserving of a much
better crowd.

The Cranbrook Herald
A pretty Christmas wedding was
solemnized in the rectory of St.
Mary's Church, Cranbrook, on Saturday, December 20th, when Miss
Lauretta LeClerc, daughter of Mr.
and Mrs. Frank LeClerc of this city,
and Mr. Everett Staples of Kimberley,
were joined in matrimony by Rev.
Father Murphy. The function was
strictly private, immediate relatives
and Friends oF the contracting parties
only being present at the ceremony.
Tho bride was attended hy Miss
Muriel Reade, Mr. Eneas Hogarth
supporting the groom. Immediately
aFter the signing of the register, the
bridal party repaired to the home of
the bride where a sumptuous wedding supper was laid and at which
20 guests sat down to he splendidly
entertained hy Mr. and Mrs. LeClerc.
It is extremely gratifying to record
the fact that Mrs. Staples, as a
native daughter who had lived all
her lire in the Cranbrook district,
was the recipient of many valuable
and useful giFts from a large circle
oF lifelong friends. The young
couple will reside at Kimberley,
where Mr. Staples is employed.
annex first win
of hockey season
New Year's afternoon the first
hockey game of the season was played, when the Kimberley Juniors played the Cranbrook Juniors at the
Kimberley rink. For tho First game
it was a Fairly good exhibition of
hockey, although neither team showed the form that characterized their
playing last year, this doubtless entirely due to lack of practice, or no
J practice at all. The attendance was
not large, possibly owing to the fact
that the game had not been sufficiently advertized in advance. As far as
the score goes, the game was a walkaway for the home team, they having no difficulty at any time, not allowing the visitors to score. This
was largely due to the good work
of Handlcy in goal, who seemed to
begin where he left olf last year, as
far as condition was concerned.
The final score was (1-0 For the home
almost all through.
Peevor made an efficient referee.
\V. II. Wilson, of Cranbrook, acted
as timekeeper, and Mr. Fred Willis
as goal judge.
