In., this  opening  game the visitors  was trimmed by a score of   11 to 3.  Clean playing and fairly good   team  work   oh   bolh    sides   marked the  game throughout.    But the   Nelson  boys did not exhibit either the   vim,  speed or skill of the home team.     It  can   be  said   in favor of the Nelson  septet   that   they   have had scarcely  any practice so far this season,   and  in this respect Phoenix had a  slight  advantage.        The  rink   was- well  crowded with   rooters,   who.   while  enthusiastic for the success of their  home   team,   were  lenient in   their  criticisms ot the rather  weak  playing of the visitors.  The first goal was scored by  . O'Connell for Phoenix within- two  minutes after the puck was tossed  on the ice. Then within 8 minutes  another red light shined on the  Phoenix score board, this goal being  made by Davidson. During the  game the other goals by Phoenix  were; Benson, 4; Sayers, 3;-Mcintosh, 2.

The  beautiful Christmas tree was a center of attraction throughout the  evening, and the distributing of the  numerous gifts with which its  boughs were laden brought the proceedings to a close.  The annual Christmas tree, concert and dance was given in the  Scandinavian hall Thursday night  under the auspices of the Scandinavian Aid and Fellowship society.  A farce comedy, entitled "Andy's  Troubles," was presented in which  the following' took part: A. O.  Johnson, Alg-ot Larson-, Mary Olson  and Louis Carlson.

Mining:  The Hartney mine in the Slocan  is to begin shipments this month.  A man well versed in mining conditions says that Ainsworth is the  best camp in the country and will  have more men working in the  mines next year than this year.  The Western Branch of the Canadian Mining Institute met at Sandon  a few days since, when an interesting program was presented. One  of the addresses given at the meeting  was on the metallurgy of zinc by G.  C. McKenzie, of the Mines Branch,  Canadian Department of Mines.  About one hundred men are employed at the Sullivan Group of mines  in East Kootenay. Much development work is being done, and  production of lead ore is being  steadily maintained, the output in  1913, to the end of November, being  approximately 32,000 tons. The  lead ore is sorted out and shipped to  Trail, while the zinc-lead ore is  stored to await the provision of  suitable facilities for seperation of  the ore metals.  Duke Harris, general manager of  the Harris Mines Ltd., was in Haz-  elton on Tuesday last securing  supplies. He reported to the Herald  that he has more confidence in the  success of the property than ever  before. He has been doing a little  work on the No. 1 vein again and  it is so promising that he believes  the No. 1 will turn out to be the  biggest ore producer on their property. They recently sunk a few  feet one hundred feet to the north of  the   shaft   and   out   of four feet of  depth -oak twenty-two sacks   of the  highest grade ores they have yet recovered.    They have a five-foot vein  with ^eighteen inches of solid   clean  ore.    j't looks so good that he proposes starting at  the  hundred   foot  level  in the shaft and drift north to  get under this shoot.    The  drift   is  already run thirty feet, leaving only  seventy feet to go.    He is confident  of getting a big shoot,   which   will  only   bear   out   his  contention that  the No. 1 vein is the biggest on the  property.   For several days the boys  have been raw-hiding ore  down   to  the foot of the hill  ready   for    shipment and when   Duke   returned   to  the   mine on Wednesday he took up  another   horse   to  put  on that job.  The first carload of ore will be ready  to ship as soon as there is sleighing  enough to permit of  transportation.  But before the ore is  t^one work will  be   resumed on the No.   1 vein.      It  is predicted that the smelter returns  on the first carload of ore   that   will  be   shippedj^from  the Harris mines  this   winter   will be a big suprise to  everyone.���Omenica Herald.  Gold-bearing ore of a mill grade  in a body 6 ft. wide has been struck  in the Yankee Girl mine of the Hob-  son Silver-Lead Mining Co., near  Ymir, B. C. The new shoot is  expected to add importantly to the  volume of ore developed on this and  the upper horizon. Shipments, interrupted by the poor condition of  the roads, will be resumed this week  snow having fallen to a depth that  will make sleighing good. Several  carloads of ore is ready f^r movement.  9  The Place to Get  Distinctive Clothes  Clothes that set you apart,  that, by their very excellence and style, mark you as "Somebody."

Things To Forget  Beds for Giants  The barking of a dog gave the  alarm that saved a Syracuse sausage factory   from   destruction    re-;  cently.   +L   The commissioners who have  charge of the institution for chronic  inebriates in New Jersey are known  a>> the "Jag Board."  A German blacksmith has been  "given the leading bass role in a  grand opera. He ought to be particularly effective in the anvil  chorus.���Vancouver Province.  Beds for giants have been ordered  by L. M. Davenport for^he $2,000,-  000  hotel   being  built  in Spokane  under his name.     In recognition of  the   fact- that many   individuals  of  unusual lineal dimension often, contract colds by sleeping- in beds   that  are a  foot  or  more short, the new  hotel will have five rooms  equipped  with beds seven feet long,   and with  mattresses   and "covers   of    equal  length.     "I don't propose   to   have  any   men over six feet in height get  cross with   me because'the beds are  too short," Mr. Davenport  explained. , '    \   /  If you. would increase your happiness and prolong your life,* forget  your neighbor's faults. Forget the  slander you have heard. Forget  the fault-finding, and give a tittle  thought to the cause which pro voiced  it. Forget the peculiarities of your  friends and only remember the good  points which make you fond of them.  Forget all personal quarrels tof  histories you may have heard by  accident and which, if repeated,  would seem a thousand times worse  than they are.     Blot   out   as   far as  I possible all the disagreeables of life;  they will come, but they will grow  larger when you remember them.  The constant thought of the acts of  meaness, or worse still malice, will  only tend to make you more familiar  with them. Obliterate everything  disagreeable from yesterday, start  out with a clean sheet for to-day  and write upon it, for sweet memory's sake,'only the things which are  lovely and lovable.  A Gentleman  A gentleman is the man who dissolves company with the snob who  relates at the club his latest conquest  of a woman. ���  A gentleman is one not having  loud clothes and loud talk as part of  his equipment.  A gentleman is one who does not  forget that the washerwoman in the  crowded street car belongs to his  mother's sex.  A gentleman is the man "higher  up" who is big enough to grasp the  hand of the man "lower down."  A gentldman is one who believes  you innocent until you are proven  guilty.

Only  five years ago tbe   company   had   a  bank overdraft of  a   million   and   a  half dollars.     A big portion of  this  indebtedness has   been   wiped   out,  and   this   year   the   profits of- the  company   were close   to   a   million  dolllars. and more than   three times  that "of  1912.

Men And Cigars  "Certainly, I will make a few  remarks," said the cigar salesman  who because of his garb, had been  mistaken for a man of the cloth.  Ascending the platform, he said:  "Men are like cigars. Often you  can not tell by the wrapper what the  filler is. Sometimes a good old  stogie is more popular than an important celebrity. Some men are  all   right   in   the  showcase  but are  great disappointments when you get  home. No matter how fine a man  is, eventually he meet his match.  A twofer often puts on as many aiis  as a fifty-center. Some men never  get to the fronts at all except during  campaigns. Some are very fancy  outside and are selected for present.  OLhers have a rough exterior, but  spread cheer and comfort about  them because of what is inside.  But all men, as all cigars, good or  bad, two-fers, stogies, rich or poor,  come to ashes at last."  CHRISTMAS NOVELTIES FOR CHILDREN  Innumerable Toys, Gun's, Dolls.

Probate of the will of the late  John Breckenridge, who died in  Calgary last May, has been granted.

Death Valley, California, has lost  none of its terrors since 1849, when  many gold hunters perished in their  attempt to reach,the bonanza field in  California.

W.  Brock, director of the geological  survey, has had to make in connection with an alleged assurance from  him that the danger which formerly  existed had disappeared.  The town is Frank, Alberta, and  the overhanging mountain is Turtle  mountain. Jt is somewhat shaky  at its foundation, and Prof. Brock  some time reported that if coal mining operations are carried on at its  base, as certain capitalists wish to  do, they would probably cause a fall  of the mountain and the wiping out  of the whole town under its huge  mass as a result."  This stand Prof.  Brock has maintained and still maintains. 'Recently,  however, in some manner it became  circulated   that  he-^Tiad advised the  Alberta ��� government' there "was no 1  further  danger!; [ ' . This, if it  were \  folio\ved by a resumption  of mining  operations, might, by a conceivable  happening;   of   events,,, -have  made  Prof. Brock's statement responsible  for   terrible   results,   so   that , the  matter being brought to  his   attention, he'has promptly   contradicted  it.

Ont. ccncniAeontifurc  The champion bull-fighter of  Mexico is in Toronto, and is trying  to arrange a bull-fight in that city.  It seems that he is meeting with  difficulty in securing a suitable place  in which to hold it. The Arena is  being seeded down with artificial  ice for hockey matches, while the  Armory has all its dates taken with  regimental drills and indoor baseball.  It is highly probable that our  Mexican visitor will fail to find a  suitable place, for his bull-fight.  Everywhere he will encounter persons who, while they will have,to  discourage him, will decline to join  his enterprise. His game is not our  game. Owing to the present high  price of beef, and to other considerations, we do not believe that this  kind of performance would appeal  to the citizens of Toronto, or be permitted by their beef-eating police.

Lane has had issued a very  neat and attractive programme and  score card for the season's hockey  games in the Boundary and West  Kootenay. It is in the form of an  eight page booklet and contains the  standing of the leagues, and the lineup  of the different teams playing in the  districts covered. These score cards  will prove a great convenience to the  hundreds of the lovers of the game.  They are being sold at the nominal  price of 10 cents each*  Frank "Patrick'TakesTStand  That the Patricks* are�� living up to  their peace agreement with the  National' Hockey association in a  more generous manner than was  anticipated that they would, is shown  by a telegraph message received by  President Emmett Quion of the N.  H. A. of Montreal, and signed by  Frank Patrick. According to the  agreement reached*early~in the fall,  the Pacific Coast, League had a  claim on all new players west of  Port Arthur, whila those between  Montreal and Port Arthur are the  property of.the N. H. A.'clubs. The  message intimates that the Coast  League will'waive claim on alfnew  players west of Port Arthur, for this  season with the exception of George  Rochon and Bernie^Morris. These  two players[haVe been suspended by  the-westerners.  Morris is sought [by the Quebec  club but as he lives in Moose Jaw,  according'to-the agreement, he is the  property of the Coast. The Patricks  had to gjve'up their^claim on a Renfrew player and it is likely that Quebec will have to do the same regarding^ Morris. Morris and Rochon  were both ordered to report at the  coast and have failed to do\o.  The message stronglyVecommends  the adoption of the new offside  rule  tried'out by the Coast League in the  last   two   matches    played.      The  spectators and  critics   in   the   west  are of the unanimous opinion that it  makes the game faster and although  there is no offside in the centre portion of the  ice  there   has   been   np  tendency on the part of the  players  to loaf.     With such a recommendation as this,' the new rule is likely to  be adopted in the National  Association this winter.''     The following is  a copy.of the  message  which  has  been sent out to the clubs:  Emmett Quinn, Montreal:  Kindly  notify  all   N.  H. A. club  owners   that  Coast League  waiver  claim on all new players in our terri  tory for this  season with the exception of George Rochon   and   Bernie  Morris, whom we have  suspended.  We strongly recommend your league  to try out the new offside rule.   The  unanimous   opinion   of spectators,  critics arid players here is favorable.  (Signed)    ;������;..  Frank A. Patrick.  The above-mentioned Bernie Morris  is well-known throughout" the  Boundary and Kootenay country,  having been a shining star on  Phoenix last year's line-up.  Will Be Famous Race  -JAS.
