Oddfellows  The second match between the  Knights of Pythias and Oddfellow  hockey teams took place on Friday  of last week. The attendance was  not nearly as large as at the former  match; but the small number of  spectators had little effect on the  opposing sides, who both appeared  anxious to carry off the laurels.  The match for the Phoenix cup  (shaving) between the tyros of the  above lodges was also pulled off  the same night and was a good;  substitute for a circus, the stick and  puck being substituted for the football and broom as was the case on  former occasions. The latter contest proved an easy win for trie  Knights, who piled  up  the colossal  score of 99 to 3 in their favor.  Dave  qualified  success  W. F. of M. Concert.  It was a thoroughly sympathetic  and    public-spirited   audience   that  crowded the opera house on Thursday of last week on  the occasion of  the  concert commemorative of the  13th anniversary of the   founding of  the  local   branch  of the  Western  Federation of Miners.    The  array  of local   talent  which   contributed  their services was one of the agreeable   surprises   of   the   gathering.  That a mining camp should be  able  to produce so  spendid an aggregation of vocaland instrumental talent  seems very little  removed from the  remarkable, and this with so appreciative   an   audience   combined   in  making the  affair what its promoters intended   it   should be, an  un-  The  efforts   of  Oxley gave great satifaction to all  concerned and his action in sending,  Chas.

The following is a summary of  the match for the nineteen hundred  and-freeze-to-death Cold Cup: THe  puck started at 8.30 p.m. and soon  found its way to the Oddboys end;  shot after shot being fired at the  net, but the posts proved too narrow for the puck to pass in. For  a time the Oddfellows* section was  the scene of activity, but a fine  breakaway brought the puck to the  Pythian end of the ice, but without  results. Both sides began to warm  up and a scrimmage in front of the  Oddfellow net enabled Perkins to  place the first goal for the Knights.

Miss Lilian Russell's  violin number " Traumeri," was  listened to with rapt attention, that  lady's efforts necessitating an encore which would brook no denial;  Mrs. Hawthorn's song "Answer"  was another item that demanded a  recall. A cornet solo, the " American Cadet.Polka," by John Findlay,  succeeded in bringing down the  house, but: all efforts to draw him  for an encore proved unavailing.

BOX 1 26  SELLING AGENT FOR THIS DISTRICT  Prisoner Escapes  Alexander, the man who has  given the British Columbia police so  much trouble in securing possession  of his person, is again at large. His  trial began at Greenwood on Tuesday, before Judge Brown, and was  nearly completed when the court  adjourned until the next day. He  was escorted to the cells tor the  night, the officers retiring for supper; the prisoner, however, decided  not to await the arrival of his  Lenten fare, for on the return of the  officers his place was found to be  vacant, the prisoner having left  for regions   unknown.  He was charged with the robbery  of $700 from Gorman West, at  VVestbridge, rind was arrested soon  after at Oroville, by Win. Dock-  steader, formerly of Phoenix. He  resisted extradition and while the  necessary papers were being awaited  from Washington, the Canadian  police, fearing the jail at Oroville  would not hold him, applied for his  removal to Spokane. This was acceded to, and to avoid a fifty mile  drive across countryentirely through  U.S. territory, the officers fearing  to trust their prisoner on Canadian  soil, which was the most convenient  route, he was locked and sealed with  his escort in the express car of the  passenger train, the seal being  broken when the train entered the  United States again.  lbs.,   has   been  Ashcroft  for   the  Mining company. It will be conveyed to the mines on wagons and  installed at once for use this season.  Reports continue to reach Victoria from the Okanagan indicative  of substantial worth in the new  placer ground recently discovered at  Whiteman's creek. In a letter recently received by a member of the  provincial service at Victoria it is  stated that some of the lucky ones  have been securing as much as  $1.50 to the pan.  Work at the Blue Bird in the  south belt continues to make gratifying progress, says the Rossland  Miner, and a contract has been let  for sinking the 5ft. by Sl't. shaft 200  feet. This will give a total depth  of 316 feet as it is already 116 feet  deep. While work was in progress  in the tunnel, which is at 94'����� feet,  two feet of solid ore were encountered, and while this has not been  assayed, it is of a quality quite in  keeping with the excellent ore already shipped to the smelter, and  from which such valuable returns  have been received.  Pythian Sisters' Anniversary  The dance,   on Monday last, with  which the Pythian Sisters  of Mountain   Temple    celebrated    the third  birthday   of the   institution of their  lodge   was   another   of those   successes   which appear   to  follow  all  their   efforts   at   entertaining   and  which   have   placed   that   excellent  organization in the front rank of the  city's   social   life.     The   fine lodge-  room   of the   Pythians   in which the  affair   was    held    was   comfortably  arranged,    a   large   number of the  members   and   their  friends   being;  present.      Dancing   commenced   at  nine   o'clock,  with   F. Werner,   the  popular   teacher   of   music   at   the  piano,   a little  later in   the evening  he   was    joined   by   Chas.   M'Kay,  whose   violin    accompaniment   was  much appreciated by  the company.'  At midnight the  sisters provided an  excellent   lunch and   soon   after the  strains of the orchestra brought the  company   again   to   their .feet,   the  merry   two step   and   gliding waltz  continuing uutil   the small hours of  Tuesday morning.  behalf of the union and referred to  the occasion that had brought them  together.

A destructive fire occurred at the  linima mine, Oro Denoro, Wednesday, which will have the unfortunate  effect of closing down that property  for some considerable time. The  fire was discovered about two o'clock  and despite every effort of the men,  the compressor building and contents were totally destroyed. There  were about 16 men employed and  the property has shipped about 4,465  tons of ore since January first. The  origin of the lire is unknown.

Speaking briefly before the members of the Victoria Overseas Club,  last week, Ernest Miller M.P.P. for  Grand Forks, said that having read  the Kingdom papers by J. S. Ewart.  K.C., he nevertheless .could not believe them, and: hoped that Canadians would always feeL proud of  Great Britain, the motherland that  had given Canada protection. He  devoutly hoped that the day would  never come , when Canada would  say "we are a nation in ourselves."  fHe referred to the. past assistance  given the motherland by Canadians,  men of British Columbia and men  of Victoria, as examples of Canadians upholding the nation and dying in-doing so. It would be impossible, said Mr. Miller, to believe  in the writings in the Kingdom  papers  and   remain   patriotic   and  Mr. Businessman Are You Very Much Alive ?

THE R.DDL.E OF CANCER.  ������^���^���   ���  New ^Theories About the Disease and  the Search For a Cure.  More, has been learned ubout cancer,  during (he lust ten years than during  the previous ten centuries, which is  only another wayof saying during the  entire history of medicine'. It'tius bran  negiitive. It is -true, bill the work of  elimination has now heeu completed.  We are ut last ou the right truck.  One lifter another of rlie old theories  of its origin bus been eliminated, u  has been suggested that it Is caused  by eating fish or flesh or tomatoes or .  cheese, or what nut. But facts do not  support any of -these theories. -It was  once supposed to lie a white man's disease and not to be found among the  uncivilized. That Is now known not  to be the case. It Is found among all  races, to u,less degree among the uncivilized, but nevertheless among tlietn.  All vertebrates are subject to it it l.i  not now thought to be hereditary, congenital, or ordinarily communicable.  What. then, is If/ By careful study  of Infected mice and rats the theory  has been evolved that cancer is due to  independent cellular activity. Cancel  Is not something tlint comes Into the  body from the outside. It is something which grows up from the Inside  It is as though certain cells of tin.  body grew up and went wrong, in  though certain soldiers In die iirnij  turned trnitors and fought their owl  brothers. Why this is so we do uol  yet know.  There  has  been  found  In some mil  mills a natural Immunity from cancer  nnd  that Immunity can  be nrtihViullj  induced.    Tills Immunity  Is either uc  tive   or   passive.     The   Crocfcen   film;  bus found It possible to Immunize mil  mills   by   injections   of   killed   cancel  cells prepared In such a manner.as tr.  leave   Intact    tlie   active   substances  Moreover, cases of spontaneous, recovery of, human  patients are known  tc.  exist.  ..Why did. they recover?:.   They  can  only  be accounted   for if such  h  thing as  Immunity  does   really  exlnt  The problem Is to find  out  what  thi'.<  Immunity   is  and   how   to  produce  It  Its existence Is certain.    Dr.  Elirlich  for  instance, ^has   done   mui-h   In   rh*  study   of  artificially   produced  'immunity   from   cancer   In   small   animals  fie has found that if mice are inorn  luted with an inactive strain of caiicc  they throw ft off. and  later if an at-  tive   cancer  strain   is   Inoculated   tbe\  have acquired immunity from ft.

At the untimely age of fourteen he was fitted  for college In mathematics, philosophy,  ancient and modern languages and tlie  sciences, and In less than three years  after entering he completed the regular four years' course und received the  degree of bachelor of arts at the ripe  age of seventeen.  Thus this brainy youth proceeded up  the hill of learning until, when lie was  twenty-one years old. he was truly on  appalling example.,'. He was as fatnll-  lur with the lute Aristotle.

But Norbert. again equal  to the emergency, procured an appropriate costume, converted his lecture  into burlesque, and with his spindle  shanked neck, overhanging brows and  a squeaky chuckle he was a veritable  scream as a silly boy monologist He  Is now diligently practicing a song and  dance, and as soon us be fully masters  a funny fall of his own invention and  a new and exceedingly humorous way  of spitting, which be has already  thought out. he expects to climb into  polite vaudeville on 'the big circuits,  where be can doubtless soon dictate  his own price.

The red  men  often spoke of this bridge to the curly  settlers of that part of Utah, but irttlf  credence    was    ever   given    to    Ibelr  stories.     About   ten   or   twelve   years  ago  It   was  lirst  discovered   by  some  mining  prospectors.     It   Is located   In  tbe beurt of a very rugged region thai  is difficult of-access.    Of late "years il  has   been   visited   by   a  'great   many  tourists and sightseers.    Very recently  some  travelers   visited   this   freak   of  old Mother Karth In automobiles, and  one   venturesome   motorist   drove   bis  car across  the bridge,  passing safely  over  the yawning chasm.    Tlie stone  of which tbe span Is composed is dark  brown sandstone, uf uu .unusually, hard  quality, und the '.thickness of the span  Is   twenty   feet   or   more.     Engineers  who have made a careful examination  of this  bridge  pronounce:it  perfectly  safe and secure und  fully cnpublo of  supporting  au  Immense  weight    The  span   is  free  from   flaws  or  seams.���  Wide World Magazine.
