away if they once caught a sight of
the dog. In the meantime Mr. Chip-
ley circled around the animals to obtain a better shot. Reaching a clump
of bushes he took careful aim at a
large buck and fired. The deer
dropped, but at almost the same instant he was attracted by a cry of
pain from his friend. Not waiting to
see if the buck was killed he ran
across and found Mr. Campbell with
a gaping wound in his arm, all the
arteries being severed and tho bone
broken, while the dog lay dead at his
feet, its head being almost completely severed from the body.
Just how it happened is hard to
explain, but Mr. Campbell believes
that the bullet struck the deer on
the antlers and glancing off diagonally, pierced the dog's throat with
fatal results and horribly mangling
his arm.
The flow of blood was staunched as
much as possible with handkerchiefs
and bandages made by tearing into
strips the shirts that they wore. It
was nearly a mile walk to the boat,
and by the time they reached there
Mr. Campbell was almost completely
exhausted. The two-mile boat trip
to Mr Campbell's shack was made in
record time. Mr. Chipley went from
there on horseback to the nearest
doctor and it was 11 o'clock, eight
hours after the accident, when the
loctor arrived and found the wounded man very weak from the loss of
blood. The following day Mr. Campbell was brought to South Fort
George where he was placed under
the care of Dr. Lazier It was
first thought it would be necessary
to amputate tbe arm, but such will
not have to be done, though it will be
four or five months before he can use
the injured limb. Mr. Campbell
is an old-timer in this district and is
beng cared for at the Northern
hotel in Soutii Fort George. His little pile of savings have been exhausted through this unfortunate accident, nnd his friends are taking up
a subscription for h.m. Any contributions will be gratefully received by
the manager of the Northern hotel.

SCHOOL CHILDREN GAVE
{    FINE ENTERTAINMENT
Packed   House   Applaud   Efforts   of
"Tho Kiddles."
The Fort George theatre was taxed
to its utmost capacity to accommodate the large crowd that gathered
to enjoy the children's concert given
last night. Over one hundred and
seventy dollars was realized, which
sum will be devoted to purchasing
a school library.
Only remarks of the highest appreciation of the able manner ln
which the program was rendered was
heard, and only the fact that lt was
specially requested that there be no
encores given prevented the audience from iusistlng on the repeating
of certain numbers. For over an
hour after the musical program was
concluded Santa Claus was kept busy
handing out presents to the hundred
or more children who were present.
Mr. Ogston, just before the singing of God Save the King thanked
all those who had In any way contributed to the making of the evening's entertainment. The tableau
drill proved to be the most popular
feature of the evening and an encore
was insisted on. The School Chorus,
in which about fifty children took
part, was also very popular and the
songs well rendered. The Chatter
Song, by Mrs. McElroy and Mr.
Dunn, proved very catchy, and insistent appealB for an encore were
responded to. The Baby Doll drill,
in which nine little girls in Red Riding Hood costumes with dolls similarly dressed, was a feature of the
evening's entertainment. The Military Drill, by the school bojn under
the command of Harper Borland and
Lieutenant T. Johnson, show that
we have coming Soldiers of the King
in-our midst. Although not on the
program, Dan McGregor sang exceedingly well Silver Threads Among
tbe Gold, accompanied on the harp
by Professor Senior A humorous
reading by George MayBon, entitled
"The 11:69 Express," created considerable merriment.
Mrs. D. A. Foster proved an excellent accompanist, and her solo,
"Lullaby," was heartily applauded.

Pays First Visit to Fort George in Space of 55 Years
Reminiscent of the early history
of the Fort Georgo district is the
visit here this week of Mrs. William
Bouchie of Alexandria and Quesnel.
Although Mrs. Bouchie is a native
of Fort George, having been born
here sixty years ago, she left the district at the age of five, and this is the
first time she has seen her old home
since then.
Mrs. Bouchie ts a member of- the
famous Bouchie family which has
played a great part in the early development of thiB country. Her Iiub-
band, William Bouchie of Quesnel,
was at one time coachman for Qov-
canoeman for Simon Fraser on his
trip down the river which bears his
name at the time the Hudson's Bay
post of Fort Georgo was established.
Mrs Bouchie did not recognize
the Fort George of her birth in the
bustling and thriving town now existing here. Her childhood memories are of an isolated fort and Indian
village in the midst of a virgin forest, a place rendered accessible only
by the swift-flowing waters of the
Fraser. When it was explained to
her that the present development
was merely a mild preparation for
the city that would spring up after
ernor Douglar. the    Hudson's    Bayithe advent of the railroad, she  w__
governor of British Columbia. Later
Mr. Bouchie ran a canoo ferry across
the Fraser at Quosnel.
Mr.  llouchie's father    was    head
convinced but evidently regretful.
"The railroad changes everything," she said. "The old days
will never come back." WI

°! Railway Commissioners, and Willi Kilby, bead of the depatn.ent
,,. itablished by the Canadian
Sern Railway company for the
Lntlon ol   tires  along   its  right-
(,vay said that the primary pur-
'* o'l his western trip is to meet
dtb officials of tho Canadian Pa-
ciflc the Grand Trunk Pacific and
tie Canadian Northern Railway companies m deviBB and discuss working
plans for the coming year.
Speaking of the work accomplished la 1913, Mr 1'O.avltt said it was
,11 that will he desired.    Much prog-
ress l,a!. i n made since the Board
of Railway t'oiumissioners has taken
over tins work and placed back of
the forest rangers un extent of authority which had previously    been
lacking.
The railroads assisted materially,
1„,added The Canadian Northern
Railway company was the first to es-
ttblisb a department solely for this
work, ami had done good service by
means of it. Great credit is also due
to tbe Grand Trunk Pacific Railway
company for the efficient work done
on IU right-of-way in the matter of
clear.r.g away brush nnd burning the
timber necessarily felled during
construct!, ti.
As a direct result of theBO precautions, Mr. Leavttt has learned from
P.C. Barnard-Hervey, chief superintendent of Dominion parks, the
amount of damage occasioned by fire
along tbis road's line has been reduced to practically nothing, there
bavii.p been but one bad fire during
the year, that at Gelkie, in Jasper
Park, la which a quantity of young
growth timber had been destroyed.

Alberl Heydmanti toft Saturday
for Nechaco (better known at the
present time as Milne's Landing) to
complete arrangements for puttlug
the town of Nechaco on the market
at the beginning of 1914. Arrangements are lifting made to have the
principal streets cleared at once and
to permit intending builders to start
any time. He will return early in
January and begin the sale of Kerb; CO lots here.
What is claimed as a record-
breaking trip was made by George
Edgecombe. Leaving here on the
Hith Inst, and spending one day In
Vancouver and another In Ashcroft,
he was back again in town just one
week from the day ne left hero, The
return journey from Ashcoft was
made in twenty-six hours, notwithstanding four blowouts and three !
punctures, lie was accompanied by I
his wife, Bud Symington and \V.
liurnB.
Considerablo excitement was caus-
ed  in  the vicinity of Robarts hotel
about 3:30 yesterday morning when:
Captain  Cochrane  in  bare  feet and |
scantily    clad    proceeded to demon- |
strato to some of the boys that he j
could estaolish a new world's record
for one hundred yards.    A  glimpse
of the fleeting figure of the captain
as he dashed with lightning speed up
Third street   would  have convinced
any one that  this "Rabbit,    of    the
North" was a speed marvel. The official    timekeeper   states   tbat   the
captain covered the distance in 5 1-R
•econds,    And the captain    i3   now
willing io wager any one that he can
do it barefooted Iii 4 seconds flat.   Is
there any takers?    If so,.post your
forfeits at the Robarts hotel.
On Sunday last the South Fort
George junior hockey toaur met and
defeated tho boys of Fort Georgo to
the tune of 8-0. The game was fast
and exciting throughout. Notwithstanding a distinct advantage which
tho boys of Fort George possessed In
numbers, they having seven men to
their opponents' five, the weight,
superior stick handling and dazzling
speed of the localB more than made
up, as the score indicates.
It was just 2:30    when    Referee
Wilfred Flynn called the boys to the
rent re of the ice and they faced off.
Terry Johnson secured tho puck and
| for the first five minutes a continual
bombardment of the goal of the Cen-
■ tral boys took place, but their goal
tender was distinctly on the job till
a rebound from his stick was met by
Frank West, who converted it into a
goal,
|    For a tew minutes after this the
| play was confined to the centre    of
Ithe Ice,   Frank Wess was given two
minutes for interference and short-
I
Hy after Bud Gross was penalized two
1 minutes for tho same offence, and
'though their opponents made a des-
j perate attempt they were, unable to
pierce the local boys weakened defence. With three minutes to play,
Bud Gross, who had returned, by a
brilliant piece of combination work
found the goal and the half ended
2-0 in favor of the South Fort Goorge
boys.
Guy Lawrence replaced Otto Kling
for the second half, but the Fort
George team found the pace too hot
and were simply skated off their
feet. No less than six goals were
scored against them during this
period, Terry Johnson getting three,
Frank West two and Bud Gross one,
making the final score 8-0. The line
up was as follows:
South Central
Johnson  ....   Centre      Brown
