IDOUGLAS FAIRBANKS
AT THE ORPHEUM
"Yiday and Saturday, Dec. 1 and   2
The  sunny disposition  of Douglas
Fairbanks has at last been adequately
tlramatized in a new Triangle Fine
\rts release called "The Habit of
lappiness." According to the plot,
which has been devised by Shannon
Fife, and elaborted by Director
Allan Dwan, Fairbanks has been giv-
sn a profession that approximates
that of the Brothers Cheeryble in
'Nicholas Nickleby."
His particular business is to make
down-hearted people laugh. The very
liovelty    of this    brings him    more
jdients than he can ever hope to cure.
\mong them is a crabbed old mil-
ionaire;  and Fairbanks takes pecu-
iar interest in his case because he
ms  a  beautiful  daughter.      In  the
•ourse   of  his   strenuous   efforts  to
elieve the old boy of the blues, Fair-
ianks unearths a plot which is afoot
n  Broad  Street,  (the  Curb  Market
or a change), to separate him from
pis wealth. Details of the conspiracy
Jiim   to   abduct  the   millionaire,   and
;eep him safely out of finance until
i certain  transaction    is  put    over.
Juite   by   chance    Fairbanks    finds
lfmself' involved in this plot, and de-
eats it in a highly ingenious as well
is athletic manner.
Director Dwan secured a splendid
east of well-known players to appear
Ijn support of Fairbanks. The roster
embraces the names of Dorothy West,
Macey Harlem, George Backus, Geo.
j Fawcett, Grace Rankin and William
Jefferson.
Orpheum  theatre  T riday and  Saturday.
The Castle Mountain Interment
Camp has moved into winter quarters
at Banff, Alberta. Only the night before they migrated the mercury flirted with the 37 below zero mark at
Mount Castle, and life in the pretty,
but pretty uncomfortable tent camp
became unbearable. Every teamster
available was on the job hauling the
stores and supplies from the old to
the new interment depot.
Capt. Burroughs and his staff will
occupy the cold storage plant — the
recreation building—again this winter. They will be able to "keep" well
there.
The camp this winter will not be
nearly as large as that of last year,
aliens not exceeding 250 and guards
about 120 men.
EUROPEAN EVENTS    THE THIRD WHIST DRIVE
Admiral Sir John Jellicoe is First
Sea Lord of the Admiralty from today. Sir David Beatty is in command
of the Grand Fleet in his place.
The London Board of Trade will
assume control of all coal mines in
South • Wales tomorrow.
Denmark, Sweden and Norway are
now issuing iron money in place of
copper coins, in two and five ore
pieces.
Holland is about to issue a loan of
125,000,000 guilders at 97, bearing interest at 4 per cent.
Sir George White, who died last
Thursday in London, established the
first air plane factory in England,
was the first to introduce electric
street .lUc'lion in London; and was
made a baronet in 1904. He was 62
years old.
Once more the question of adopting
the decimal system in Great Britain
has come up, this time in a resolution voted at a conference of the British Imperial Council of Commerce.
In the resolution the council was requested to approach the Imperial and
Dominion governments and in other
ways endeavor to bring about the
adoption throughout the Empire of a
uniform decimal system of weights,
measures and currency, in order that
trade relations with foreign countries
might be developed. The meeting at
which the resolution was adopted
wat attended by members of leading
chambers of commerce and boards of
trade all over the British Empire.
Similar action was taken "by the Association of Chambers of Commerce
of the United Kingdom some months
ago.
Spain has erected a new wireless
station at Cape Juby, on the Atlantic
coast of Africa. It is less than 100
miles from the big wireless station on
the Island of Teneriffe, Canary Islands. Cape Juby is a sandy and almost barren projection, a part of the
Western Saharas, which extends
along the western coast of Africa
and connects the Mogador district
with the Spanish possessions of Rio
de Oro. Regular steamship service
has been established between Cape
Juby and Teneriffe.

The third Whist Drive in aid of the
Canadian Red Cross, took place at
the barracks Recreation Room on
Thursday, Nov. 23. The appearance
of the room has been materially improved, still chairs are needed for the
ladies. Once again Mrs. Sergt. Carter
was the winner of the lady's prize,
with 35 points. Pte. Henthorn won the
gentleman's prize; and Sergt. F.
Wildman had the honor of winning
the booby prize. He had only six
points.
Sergt. Cecil Minton presented the
prizes to the winners of the previous
drive, Mrs. Carter, Corpl. G. Ross
and Miss James. As additional members of the Whist Drive committee
Lance Corpl. Sanders, Corpl. Oughton and Pte. Henthorn were appointed. It is not necessary for any onlookers to peek through the windows.
Come right inside. Everyone is welcome and every 10 cents collected
goes to the Canadian Red Cross.

AN EFFORT TO
HELP THE BOYS
BONNINGTON BUDGET
At the age of 40 a man is either a
confirmed bachelor or a pessimist.
No man or woman has ever been
educated to great usefulness outside
»f the school of adversity.
Congratulations to the new Quartermaster, Sergt. Jack Rigg, on his
appointment.
Sergt. Major H. A. Bryant wears
a No. 7 1-4 cap. The new cap is proud
of its wearer.
Sailor Jack is the liveliest dead
man you ever saw. He's as spry as
they make them, in spite of being
killed first by the Fernie Free Press,
and then by the Morrissey Mention.
(We are glad to hear Sailor Jack is
still hale and hearty and apoligize for
publishing his prematurely advertised demise.—Ed.)
The mail is not "delivered" at Bon-
nigton Falls, it is chucked out of the
train, and last week it did not land
further than the rails under the train
with the saddest of results. Regimental badges sent expressly to "H"
Co. were seen rolling down the river
bank. Some were flattened out; none
tried to climb the mountains, but all
were more or less damaged. Letters
were literally cut in two. Bills from
irate creditors alone were not mutilated. No one would have minded if the amounts were cut in two.
Registered mail for the O.C. spread
dollars over a mile of track. (Too
late, the train's already gone to Bonnington; besides they were all picked
up by the guards.) A cake being sent
by some sweet Nelson maidens to
their especial specials, was crushed
to smithereens and got badly mixed
with one package of kidney and another of fish, much to the delight of
the dogs of the neighborhood. Love
letters were strewn from Bonnington
to Robson, but all s well that ends
well, and no one was hurt.

can not all be attorney generals.

A matrimonial knot is sometimes a
serious tangle.
As a nation engaged in the tremen-
ous struggle for the principles of
liberty, freedom and justice, Canada
is realizing the new significance of
■work with boys, and some of her very
best Christian men are giving cheerfully of their time in connection with
this great opportunity for conserving
and developing boy life.
The Canadian Standard Efficiency
Tests Programme, through practical
demonstration in Funday schools and
Young Men's Christian Associations,
has made splendid progress, and is
not only raising the standard of boy
life and enlisting a high type of
leadership, but is gripping the interest of parents in a most remarkable
way.
Arrangements are being made to
hold a Conference for boys and men
in Nelson from Dec. 15 to 17. Experts representing the leading denominations and the Y.M.C.A., who
have been conducting a series of conferences from coast to coast, will stop
in Nelson, and it is hoped that arrangements can be made to have
them stop in Fernie also.
It is calculated that there are over
150 boys of 'teen' age in Fernie, and
it is felt that something should be
done for their welfare. It seems a
reproach to our city that there is no
Young Men's Christian Association in
the locality.
The following gentlemen met together in the Fernie Hotel on the
27th inst to discuss the matter outlined above: Rev. D. M. Perley in the
chair; E. G. Daniels, W. J. Stewart,
A. E. Marcer, Rev. Mr. Carr of the
Presbyterian church; G. C. Allen and
Rev. A.. B. Lane.
In bringing the meeting to a close
a vote of thanks was passed to Mr.
Wallace for kindly allowing the committee the use of a room.
BRIGADIER  McLEAN
There was a goodly attendance at
the Salvation Army Citadel in Fernie
last night to hear a most interesting
lecture by Brigadier McLean, officer
in charge of the S. A. work in B.C.,
Alaska and the Yukon. The Brigadier
has been an active member of the
S.A. for 30 years and has been a
worker in all parts of the Dominion.

TOOK 102 PRISONERS
No man ever does as much today      No man can expect to be happily
as he is going to do tomorrow. married unless he is a good listener.
Sergt. Tugg, of the R. A. M. C,
who witnessed Pte. Tom Jones of
Runcorn win his Victoria Cross, described the amazing way in which the
the Cheshire soldier took a hundred
German prisoners. The sergeant's
story is as follows:
"On Sept. 25 we took a village and
stalled to dig ourselves in. Soon bullets began to fly all around. Jones
turned to his officer and said, 'They
nearly got me, let's get at them or
there will be trouble.' The officer declined to sanction the charge. The
shower of bullets continued and the
man next to Jones was hit. Jones
then said to his officer, 'If I'm to be
killed, I'll be killed fighting not digging.' He grabbed his rifle and
walked over to the German trenches
alone.
"Everyone expected him to go down
instantly, and we learned later that
one bullet had gone through his helmet and three through his tunic. We
gave him up when he entered the
German trench, but eight minutes later two of his pals said, 'He's gone,
and we're going, too.' Others followed, and when they got across they
saw a sight they'll never forget.
There was Todger Jones standing by
a Hjpdred of the enemy in a big hollow, he was threatening them with
bombs, and they all had their hands
up. Jones told them to put on their
coats, and his pals helped to round
them up. They included an officer of
the German staff.
"From the prisoners we learned
that he had bombarded the door of
their dugout, killing the first three
who showed themselves. Then he
ordered them to come out one by one
with hands up, threatening instant
death for disobedience. One by one
they came out and lined up until 102
stood before the bomb thrower in the
attituude of surrender."
Sergt. Tugg adds that the men in
the trenches went almast wild with
delight when Jones returned with his
captives and eleven officers joined in
recommending him for the Victoria
Cross.
This glorious amplification of the
terse official statement created great
enthusiasm in Runcorn, and Jones' return on leave is eagerly awaited by
all. His parents have been overwhelmed with congratulations. TWO

FOR  BELGIAN  CHILDREN
the entire audience interested with a
"capital" recitation. She was very
"collected" in both capacities.
The first solo by Miss Hazel Mc-
Cool, recently a member of the Famous Bostonians, now singing at the
Grand theatre, Fernie, won a great
ovation for the singer, but Miss Hazel kept cool and sang an encore to
her wonderful Yodei song.
Once again the obliging orchestra
obliged. Was it an  obligato?
Master Isaac Tyson gave a thrilling and somewhat explosive recitation, "The Blooming Thing Exploded," and brought a most popular item
of the program to an untimely end.
Many sweet "Memories" were recalled by a duet by Mrs. Lambkin
and Miss Hazel McCool. It was sweet
and sweetly sung and heartily encored.
Only those who live on the North
American continent could really appreciate the stirring strains of "Men
of the North," as sung by the children. They are well trained and kept
strictly to the rails—in lines with no
open "spaces." We made a "note" of
that and also that there was a "minimum of shoe shuffling during this
performance. We "bar" shuffling; it
makes us "crochety."
Mrs. Lambkin obliged with "The
Shamrock, the Thistle and the Rose,"
a thoroughly British song, which she
was applauded to sing twice. Our
reporter is still looking for the Englishman who don't love the rose. Mrs.
Black has found the animal who
loves the thistle, and we know Mrs.
Abbott would rather have a Shamrock than the real thing.
The orchestra supplied another
selection which everyone enjoyed,
even the latest recruit, Miss Ruby
Stevens, was soothed into sweet
slumber. Sleep on, sweet maid.
Miss McCool and    Mrs.    Lambkin,
curiously  enough,  both  wide  awake,
were "Dreaming of My Irish Rose."
It was of course a mere coincidence
that  they  should  both  dream  of the
same thing or person  at the    same
time. Still we are glad that this was
the case as their redition was absolutely  charming  and     the    building
"bumped" with the clapping of many
hands and the  rounds of "encores."
We  consider  Miss  Irish  Rose    very
lucky to possess such dreamers, and
Miss McCool and Mrs. Lambkin very
lucky to possess such dreams.
The  orchestra  intervened.
Pte. Young said "Ta Ta to Maggie
Darlin'.   He   said   it   several     times.
Maggie didn't seem to mind how often  he said it. She was there every
time. We like Maggie. She is not any
cold,  cynical   creature   but  a  warm,
generous-like Scotch lassie, bless her
Pte. Young was cheered to the echo,
not by Maggie;  she's too bashful to
do  that  and  too   cimcumspect,    but
by everyone in the hall, so he told his
admirers of the "Hoose    Beyint the
Hill."      We could  not  see Maggie's
hoose but we know it was there because Pte. Young did not give us a
chance to forget it. It's some hoose,
too. Believe muh!, which is U.S. for
"ye ken."
Q. M. Sergt. Ed. Brown, school
trustee, thanked everyone who had
been 'instrumental in making the afternoon a success, and he omitted
none, which shows he is an orator, a
tactician, a scholar and a gentleman.
Mrs. A. J. Mott and Lt. Abbott
took care of the funds collected. A
trio, a treasure and a treasurer and
the treasure.
Lt.  W.  H.  Wallace    handed    two
oranges and two lemons to one of the
ladies.   Oranges   are  the  fruit   of  a

We always knew that Belgium was
a member of the Concert of    Allied
Nations  but we  did  not  know  they
could     conduct   such     a   harmonious
concerta as was evident last Friday
afternoon   in   the   Morrissey     Camp
school house, merely by evoking the
sincere   sympathy   of     every     camp
school   boy  and  girl  for  their    less
fortunate school fellows in far away
unhappy  and  diconsolate   little    Belgium. And almost everyone, off duty,
in  Camp was there.      Not a dull or
dreary moment from 2 o'clock to 6.
Sweet  songs, witty  recitations,  brilliant decorations, part of which were
obliterated,   and   in   turn   themselves
obliterated,  by  an   officer  who    was
rankly irate at there being no mistletoe in the festoons.      Flags of King
Albert's    country    mingled with Ensigns and Jacks of our own. Speeches
before, between and after; a galaxy
of beauty, youth and grace;    elegant
officers and bold guardsmen; a superabundance of cakes and cookies,    to
say nothing of unlimited bread    and
butter (which the children seemed to
like  best  of  all)   and  tea  in   lakes,
whose unrippled surface reflected only the happiness of faces. Some afternoon!   And   a  financiallly   successful
one,  and considering the size  of the
community a proof of its good quality.    To this must be added a greater part of the real cause of the   delightful  musical  feast,  three  charming  visitoresses    from    our    Fernie.
Without them it might have been    a
good show; with them it was a dandy.
But this is not a critique of the program. You will find that under "Con-
certisms." The above is merely mentioned to prepare you for what    our
own special reporter heard and saw,
also what he didn't hear or see. Morrissey children, thanks to their most
able instructress, Miss Ruth Cooper,
may congratulate themselves,   as we
do them, on the success of the concert in aid of Belgian children.

Major C. AE. Shaw presided.
The  program   was   long   but
long enough.
The   opening   item,  "Belgian
not
Na
tional Anthem," should be more fnnj-
who kindly accompanied everyone.
Regimental Q.M.S. Lambkin's orchestra, which supplied instrumental
melody many times is not heard
often enough.
Miss Cooper's opening remarks
need no further remark than that the
grown ups were made to wish they
too could go back to school with the
whackings  omitted.
The children's chorus, "Red, White
and Blue," was a credit to the school
and their teacher. It was an afternoon  of credits.
"Canadian Born," by the 3rd Reader, was a boost for Canada. The Dominion dominates and deserves to
dominate.
More instrumental music; also
more  clatter—more's the pity.
The "Dominion Hymn" by the pupils, said nothing of "Her." A him
without a her is something of an innovation.
Miss  Hilda Minton not only    kept
to many pears; we mean pairs, but
lemons to a lady too;well it's lucky
they were not the real thing.
Mrs. Lambkin's garden has suddenly bloomed with daffodils and roses.
She had to pay dearly for them, but
some little Belgian boy or girl will
have a meal or two on that, so it's all
right.
Miss Corsan, of Fernie, was a welcome helper and saw that no one
starved to death or suffocated foi
want of a "dish o' tay." It's great
how much one little lady can do at
an affair like that and makes a man
who can't pass a pie properly (we
mean pass it around not pass round

Lt. McLaine was feeling cold when
he arrived at the Belgian concert, so
he promptly clothed himself with a
few. flags, a map or two; also about
half the decorations. Who laughed?

ranked with the barracks and boycotted the places. Thanks, bow-wow!
There have been no casualties since
the cake contest and concert, but
pains were taken to prevent possibilities.
Just fancy! A room full of grownups, a loom full of children, both in
the same room full of good things to
eat and drink, and there were actually no less than three cakes left over,
which Lieut. McLaine, who acted as
auctioneer, knocked down (poor
cakes, a cowardly thing to do to a
mere cake) to Sergt. E. H. Lane, C.
A.S.C. orderly; Orderly Room Sergt.
H. Carter, and the fortunate scribe.
We say fortunate because it was the
best cake and cost less than the other
two.
Who took the cake? One married
man, two bachelors, and then they
say a bachelor is good for nothing.
God Save the King.

That Mrs. A. J. Mott spent the
week end in Fernie.
That Lt. A. Cooper has reported
for duty at Bonnington Falls.
That the Black circus has an addition to its menagerie—a donkey.
That the second class prisoners of
war are rehearsing Christmas carols.
That Pte. Jonesy states that a private in the Q. M. stores is growing
corns.
That Sergt. Robt. Crowe is as welcome in between pay days as on days
of pay.
That Morrissey feels itself honored by the visit of three staff officers
at once.
That planks are still on furlough,
Even the snow cannot cover up all
the holes.
That "There are braw laddies in
the 93rd"—no one gets a chance to
forget it.
That Saturday began life in the
dust but climbed hard and ended in
the snows.
That there is a Church of England
sale of work in Fernie on Saturday
afternoon.
That the Britannic is at the bottom
of the sea but Britannia still rules
the waves.
That the deer are not anxious to
come near the camp. It's just as well
for the deer.
That the new heater in the barracks is a real heater and makes even
the good tempered hot.
That Elko is a good place for rooms
but Roomatism is unknown. You'll
never Roo a visit to Elko.
That it was mean to eat all that
pumpkin pie and the Mentioner so
piously inclined, too, to pie.
That Saturday next is American
Thanksgiving and turkeys are being
dispatched for the occasion.
That the washroom badly needs
some nails. Towels will not stand
upright. They ought to be hung.
That the Canadian born quintette
at the Belgian concert were, are and
always will be charming reciters.
That the fat man has been suffering with a bad cold but is now better. He is wearing a swadlincote.
That the concert committee should
see that the seats are returned to the
barracks, if only a matter of form.
That the C.A.S.C. office is delighted to hear a rumor that forms ordered last May are on their way west.
That a private in the 107th went to
Fernie to have a tooth extracted but
his courage failed. Better luck next
time.
That Mrs. Meek's 25th birthday
party was one big delight. May she
live one hundred years more and then
some.
' That "Peg o' My Heart," who in
every day life is Miss Dorothy La
Verne, it at the Grand theatre Saturday night.
That a certain sergeant is leaving.
Everyone will be sorry, as he is liked
and  respected  by  the   men   of    the
107th E.K.R.
That Sergt. Wildman appears to
have no hands. His white mitts on a
snowy background are the cause and
yet he is handsome.
That the improvements to the new
residence of Lt. and Mrs. Abbott are
a paradox—by cutting two rooms in-
two the result is four.
That a sergeant and his wife took
turns keeping awake in preparation
for possible fire alarms. They did not
intend to be caught napping.
That subscribers whose Mentions
do not reach them should notify the
Mentioner at once and get a copy in
place of the lost "green 'un."
That the C.A.S.C. building witnessed a gathering of the Clans — this
week end, Lts. Wallace and McLaine
having moved into quarters there on
Sunday.
That sundry Sunday rumors of a
Saturday wedding caused many an
old bachelor to rue his own sorry indecision and to determine to make
amends.
That as an exhibition of acceleration the Sunday fire drill would be
hard to—accelerate. Most of the private fire in camp went out, in sheer
de-light.
That those who were not thankful
on Canadian Thanksgiving day can
make up for it on Saturday. It's a
poor human specimen that can't find
something to be thankful for.
Fire!-!!.Two lectures on Fire, so
everyone knows just what to do with
the end of the hose. Do it quickly!
Be smart! If a fire should start.
Everyone, everyone! assume a speed
pose."
That a nice daughter bespeaks a
nice mother, but it does not follow
that because mother's cooking is
superb, daughter can win a home for
her doughnuts. (Victoria papers will
please copy.)
That it is regrettable that Britain
does not own the Hawaiian Islands.
After hearing Miss Hazel McCool
sing, most of the 107th would like the
regiment to be transferred to the
land of sugar canes and the ukulele.
That the Misses Myra Carter, Susie Ross, Rita Black, Gladys Cheston,
assisted by Master Norman Cheston,
proved their elocutionary ability with
a fine rendering of "Canadian Born"
at the concert and were heartily applauded.
That the longest recruit, 6 ft. 6in.,
arrived in camp, but disappeared
after lunch before he was sworn in.
He evidently thought thre were no
unmentionables long enough. Had he
waited for an issue he would have received a pair and it would have been
long enough before he got another.
That while some of us are commencing to climb life's rough trail,
some are only over the first hill or
two and some have weathered the
worst of the way, the lesser majority
who have not yet joined the greater
majority can be assured that the rest
of the way is easier going. Let us
hope it be not "down grade" but only easier and brighter and end on a
brilliant summit.

It is Mentioned
That the mother of the little piggies has gone to a sty in the sky.
That there was a children's birthday party at Mis. Black's last week.
Everyone had a good time.
That Frenchy is cooking at the
officers' quarters. Hot cakes will now
be de rigeur.
That $32 was the net result of the
concert.
That the postoffice closes at 5 p.m.
That Sergt. Lane, N. Co., i.e., C.
A.S.C., has at last received a parcel
of stationery from Ottawa and the
staff are overjoyed.
That the staff officers made things
move. Even Lt. Wallace's new house
moved from its old site to its present position. It was a moving sight.
That, thank goodness, Lt. McLaine
did not bring his dog here. We have
a few.
That a post office is a post office
and not a mere convenience at intermittent, intervals for sorting and distributing mail. Post office hours are
regulated by Ottawa and the public
has a right to refuse to wait around
for many hours merely to register a
letter. They should register a kick.

Look pleasant, Christmas will soon
be here.
Four Horns, from Two Medicine
Creek, Roosville Valley, was in town
this week.
The Cow-Punchers on Tobacco
Plains held a big meeting this week
at the Quarter Circle Three Ranch,
and they propose holding a big roundup dance with all the trimmings in
the near future. There were representatives from the following ranches :
The Wild Goose, the U-Bar, Bar-
H-Bar, Lazy Hank, Diamond Six and
others. So
Git yo' little sage hens ready,
Trot 'em out upon the floor.
Line   up!   There,  you   cusses,   steady.
Lively,  now, one couple more;
Shorty,  shed  that old  sombrero;
Broncho, douse that cigarette;
Stop that singing, Cinnamon Tommy,
For the ladies now all set.
On with the dance, let joy be uncon-
fined.
Contractor W. Woods left for Spokane this week, after more men and
teams, and more timber.
The poet may sing, "0, for the
wings of a dove," but we'll take the
leg of a goose for ours.
Running Wolf, Flying Bird, Eagle
Feather, Chase in the Morning,, and
Creeping Bear came in from the
game preserves this week w:ith
goods.
Mrs. Hugh Watt, who left some
time ago for California, on receipt of
a telegram that her son, Ross Jennings was sick, returned this week.
Ross, who is well known in Fort
Steele and Cranbrook, is out of danger and gettingalong fine.
W. A. Wilmot, pre-emption inspector, was in Elko this week on business.
Venison with black currant jelly is
a regular dish in Elko these days and
the fish biting to beat old Isaac, and
the big red apples still a rolling.
Clothes, said a travelling tailor,
in Elko this week, should match the
hair. If that's a fact it. should be a
great help to a bald headed man.
Pat Murphy, Mike Maloney, and
Terrance O'Shane, three Swede prospectors, are registered at the Elk
Hotel from Spokane this week.
Mr. and Mrs. J. W. Kerr, with Mr.
and Mrs. J. Thomson, motored to
Wardner this week to visit the Duncans.
Last week there was a man in Manitoba fined five dollars for spanking
his mother-in-law. If that's all it costs
there is liable to be lots of fun in
Manitoba.
Society is quite lively now and will
no doubt contiue so until after the
Christmas holidays. What's the matter with the Cold Nosed Whist Club
these nights, and the young people
getting up a big pati'iotic dance.
Mr. and Mrs. C. A. Klingensmith
motored to Fernie last week end.
George Mclntyre, of Vancouver,
was in Elko this week, as full of
brotherly love as a camp meeting.
Fred Roo is just as busy as a one-
eyed boy at a three ring circus.

HARDY HUNTERS
Three stalwart citizens of Fern is
mushed their way to Morrissey Camp
through the new snow early Wednesday morning, leaving at 1 a.m and
arriving round about half past six,
with their pack horses. They were
Harry Elliot, Fred White and R.
Winstanley. After breakfast they
proceeded up the trail to the Meadows, where they will camp and follow the deer. Chief Brown and Geo.
Vines, of Fernie, came out on the
morning train and took the trail for
the same hunting ground. The party
will return next Wednesday and venison will be the order of the day.
