Boundary Association
The West-Kootenay and Boundary hockey clubs met at Grand
Forks last week to discuss several
matters    of   importance.     Those
present were:   Dr.  Vigneux, Nelson; S. G. Blaylock ami G. Cruick-
shank, Trail; G.  A.  Lafferty and
W. H. Atkinson,  Eossland; E. A.
Black and James Walsh, Phoenix;
W. G. Pond,  Greenwood; E. Cur-
ran and T. A. Love, Grand Forks.
Dr.  Vigneux presided and said
that while the   organization   had*
been got under way last winter at
Nelson no actual business had been
transacted.    It was decided that
the organization be known as the
Boundary-West Kootenay Hockey
association, instead of league, with
which the Bounday and Kootenay
leagues are affiliated.   The election
of officers resulted as follows: Honorary president   Sir Eichard Mc-
Bride;   president,    Dr.    Vigneux;
vice-president,    F.   S.   Norcross;
secretary-treasurer, E. A. Black.
The rules of the Pacific Hockey
association were then gone over
carefully and after modifying to
suit local conditions were adopted
as the rules for the Boundary-
West Kootenay Hockey association.
Among the more important rules
are that players may be substituted
at any time during the first two
periods. It also provides for tho
numbering of players and keeping a record of penalties, scoring
and assists.
The rules will be issued shortly
in convenient' book form for the
use of the clubs and members.
At Grand Forks last week the
delegates of the three teams met in
the Eussell house and drafted a
new schedule for the games in the

High were greatly plagued thereby.  And in the course of time it   came   to   pass  that others  snuffed it, and they were  taken  suddenly with  fits,  and  they did sneeze with great and mighty sneezes,   insomuch  that their eyes filled with tears, and they did look exceeding silly.    And yet others cunningly wrought   the leaves  thereof into rolls,- and did 'set fire to the end thereof, and  did look very grave and calf like, sucking it, and the smoke  of their torment ascended up forever and .ever.  And the cultivation thereof became a great and mighty  business in the earth, and the merchantmen waxed rich by  the commerce thereof, And it came to pass that the saints  of the Most High defiled themselves. And even the poor,  vyho could not buy shoes, nor bread, nor books for their  little ones, spent their money for it,, and the Lord was  greatly-displeased therewith and said, "Wherefore this  waste; and why do these little ones lack bread and shoes  and books? Turn your attention to change this wicked  evil-which has grown up in your.midst in a gospel land.  Turn now your fields into corn and wheat, and defile not  yourselves any more, and God will bless you and cause the  smile of his countenance to shine on you." But with one  accord they all exclaimed, "We cannot cease from chewing  and snuffing and puffing. We are slaves to the evil plague."

The Golden Gate Mining Co.  has up to dato spent something  like sixteen thousand on this property. ���������Merritt Herald.  Spooning Gold  The Granby Consolidated still  continues its policy of expansion  which has been so marked during  tbe past two years, and the latest  acquisition is the Snowshoe. mine  at Phoenix. The Granby has been  carrying on extensive development  work at tbe Snowshoe,. and it ls  now understood that it has exercised its option paying $20,000 for  tho property.  The   Snowshoe    was   operated  originally by an English syndicate,  but was later more extensively operated under lease by the Consolidated Mining & Smelting company  of Trail, who ceased their   operations about a year ago." The property adjoins the Gold Drop outlet  of tbe  Granby mines at Phoenix  and the Granby has- been recently  exploring the Snowshoe by tunnel  and otherwise and is said.. to have  about half a million tons' of ore in  sight with prospects  for much ad  ditional tonnage.    The pre will all  be shipped to the company's smel  ter at Grand Forks..  Another property which the  Granby acquired is the-,$lidas mine  at Valdez, Alaska, the cost of  which, including necessa^ equipment, will be 825,000.' The Midas  ore, thus far shown up, averages  from 5 per cent to 6 per cent cop'  per with ������2 a ton in gold and sil  ver. Development to date has disclosed about 82,000,000 in values,  but the extent of the ore deposits  has by no means been ascertained.  The ores from the Midas, sulphide in character, will be utilized  as a much needed flux in the opera  tions of the Hidden Creek smelter  to which shipments will commence  about the middle of 1914.  Just south of the Canadian border in the State of Washington,  Granby has had several properties  under option for the past few  months. One of these is the Lame  Foot group, upon which fair results have been had. Another  property which bids far to duplicate the Granby itself.  The mine management at Hidden Creek has advised the Eastern  officials that the construction and  development programme has been  fully lived up to, whioh indicates  that the new smelter will blow in  early in January.  There is a gold excitement  around Chesaw these days, a few  miles west of Greenwood. Tbe  editor [of the Chesaw News is a  great authority upon eggs, and  may eventually become an expert  upon mining matters. The News  says:  ���������'Those  who have heard of the  "high grader" in far off Alaska,  New Mexico and the Tonopah gold  fields of Nevada but have never  seen   one of these   characters at  work should stroll  down to   the  Eagle claim which lies just north  of the Reco.   There,  not 50 feet  from the Eeco workings,  L.   B.  Pierce    is    conducting   a, "high  grade"    campaign   single handed  and   successfully,    which   savors  highly of the real thing.   He has  stripped a short stretch of ground  and with a small hand pick, a soup  spoon and a svhisp broom is working in a narrow seam but three  inches wide most of tho way, and  sometimes wide enough to permit  him scooping the muck out with  his hands.    The pay stuff is sifted  through a sieve, the coarse matter  sacked for the smelter,  while the  fine dirt is taken down  to Meyers  Creek a few hundred feet distant  and there dumped   into a sluice  box and the water does the rest  while Pearce goes back to his dig-  gin's on the ground which but recently  served   as a bleacher for  Chesaw baseball rooters.    Pearce  is making  big money  every day.  He is not digging any deeper than  his   soup spoon and whisp broom  will take effect, and not yet; has he  done any shooting to get down any  depth  where the best of it is embedded.    It is an encouraging fact  that in the Reco workings along  the Eagle the deeper the digging the  richer the output.    In the tunnel,  which  picked  up one ledge at a  depth of about 40 feet the best of  the gold is right in the bottom of  the tunnel.    What lies still deeper  down will be revealed when the  work shifts around to the exploratory stage.

Ranch beef, killed yesterday,  With an outputin October of  3,581 tons, the Queen Victoria  mine of the British Columbia Copper Company at Beasley beat all  records for the year, and . brought  the total shipments from that  property for the ten months to  22,807 tons.  The output is approximately  17,000 tons higher than the shipments of any other mine in the  Nelson district for the period. The  ore is being shipped to the company's smelter at Greenwood.  Forestry Facts  There are more than one hundred tree species found in Canada,  of which only thirty are conifers.  Yet these latter .constitute Canada's chief timber wealth. Of  these coniferous 'trees, or "evergreens," spruce easily takes first  place, constituting over one* third  of the lumber and three-quarters  of the pulpwood cut in Canada in  1912. Four of the five species of.  spruce are of commercial importance, and at least two of these  five are found in every province of  the Dominion.  This summer an expert soil  analyst was engaged by the Forestry Branch of the Dominion  Government to substantiate the  finding of the forest surveyors in  cases where there was any doubt  as to the non-agricultural character  of forest areas to bo reserved.  A novel use has been found for  the waste liquor from sulphite pulp  mills, as a binder for cinders and  similar materials used in the construction of tennis courts.  That sawdust and other mill  waste can be profitably manufactured into briquettes for fuel is  evident from the fact that a large  lumber company in British Columbia ia erecting a 850,000 plant,  which will have a daily output of  about thirty tons of such briquettes,  F@r Y������ur Wife, Mother, Sister or Dayifater  Hand Embroidered Armenian Linen Handkerchiefs  NICE FOR MAILING..
