C. E. S. Gow is visiting his
brother, Station Agent Gow, and
is recuperating after an accident
for which he was in hospital in
Vancouver eight months.
There is a dearth of fresh eggs
in Hazelton, consequent upon the
inability of the ranchers in the
Kispiox Valley to cross the river

less days soon are possible.
Howard Guest arrived in Hazelton this week after several
months' absence on the coast.
While at Victoria he underwent
a successful operation at the
hands of the late Dr. C. M. Jones
at the Royal Jubilee Hospital.
In the current issue of the
British Columbia Gazette appears
the notice of the incorporation of
the South Bulkley Farmers' In-
stitute.covering the South Bulk-
ley district, with headquarters at
Forestdale.
A canvass was made this week
by the Hazelton Fire Association
for subscriptions to the funds of
the fire brigade. A good sum

maintenance of our fire-fighting
apparatus in its present excellent
condition.
Mr. and Mrs. E. Wrinch and
son and Mr. and Mrs. Turrel.who
have been the guests of Dr. and
Mrs. Wrinch at the Hospital, left

of years in Ontario.
R. G. Moseley was in receipt
this week of telegrams from Mrs.
Moseley, who left here several
months ago, to attend the sickbed of her mother, telling him of
the death of both her mother and
sister at Ely, Nevada, within a
few days of each other.
During the week copies of the
new food regulations were distributed to the restaurants and
eating houses in town by the
police, and were made applicable
immediately. A fine of not less
than $100 and not more than $1000
or three months imprisonment or
both is the penalty for infractions
of the new regulations.

Such generous response to the
appeal for funds which has been
made by his friends, shows how
Jim May's memory is held by
those who knew him, for we
have received donations from
many outside points, as a tribute
to the man who devoted his life
to the exploration of the wildest
portions of this province, undergoing hardships, suffering privations, but blazing the trail of
civilization and receiving recompense from Mother Earth, who
gave him of her precious yellow
metal.
Jim May's grave in Hazelton
cemetery is unmarked, a fact
that does not seem fair to his
memory. Jim May was a square
dealer; let us give him a square
deal. Send your dollar bill to The
Miner, which is trustee for the
fund. All subscriptions will be;
acknowledged week by week in I
these columns.

SAVING DAYLIGHT.
Under the new daylight saving
act we are already beginning to
observe some of the advantages
foretold in its passage. Really,
it is quite nice to get up in the
crisp morning hours to go to
work as the sun gets up and to
cease our labors when Old Sol is
still comparatively high in the
heavens. It will be a distinct
novelty in a couple of months to
go to bed when our watches mark
the hour of 10:30 p.m. and it is
broad daylight in this northern
latitude, and we shall be true
creatures of the sun, anyway for
a few weeks, seeing hardly any
of the dark period of the twenty-
four hours at all.
 o	
GARDENING.
Now is the time when the
people of this community should
get out their trusty spades and
rakes in preparation for the
planting season, which will be in
full swing in a very  short time.
Production is the crying need
of the hour, and we can do "our
bit" Ly growing our own vegetables, losing no time to prepare
ground for the reception of the
seed. Nearly everybody in this
town has a plot of ground,or can
obtain one, for cultivation, and
it behooves every one of us to do
his utmost in producing to the
limit of his capacitv There is
nothing to lose and much to gain
by the cultivation of a small plot
of land. Make yourself veget-
ably independent, if we may coin
the phiase, and,besides affording
you the pleasure of raising your
own garden truck, your pocket
wilralso benefit by your industry.
. u ���
THEY DON'T LIKE IT.
The people of Karlsruhe have
appealed to the German Imperial
government to make an arrangement to cease all air raids on
towns outside the military area.
This is the typical German as we
have found him in this war. He
will introduce some new form of
frightfulness, but when retaliatory measures in kind are used
against him, he immediately
makes a cry to high heaven for
its abolishment. Fritz did not
like it when the Allies used gas
against him after he had employed it against our own troops, and
now the retaliatory air raids do
not suit his fancy. A taste of
his own barbarism will do him
good and the bigger the dose the
sooner will  he realize that two
ed commander-in-chief of all the
Allied forces on the west front.
The wisdom of this move is apparent, but the action of appointing Foch, whom Joffre called the
ablest strategist in Europe, is
as wise a move again. He will
have under him troops of many
nationalities, French, Belgian,
British, American, Portuguese,
Indian, Colonial and others, and
with these moving under his one
direction, the best of strategy
can be carried out with the least
liklihood of blunder.
Premier Borden has requested
the Imperial government not to
confer any more hereditary titles
on Canadians. Now we get less
knight and more day.
Some Germans are trying to
have air raids stopped. Thiir
own medicine doesn't agree with
them.

Canada's Fuel
Canada burns 30,000.000 tons of
coal every year, of which GO per
cent comes from the United States.
The consumption may be accounted for approximately as follows:
Manufacture of coke, 2,000,000
tons; rail way locomotives!), 000,000
tons; collieries, 1,000,000 tons;
bunkering ships, 1,000,000 tons;
domestic heating, 5,000,000 tons;
industrial heating, 6,000,000 tons:
industrial  power, G,000,000 tons.
Now Mr. Canadian Consumer,
which shall it be, Pennsylvania
or Telkwa coal ?
The British man-power bill has
passed all stages and the royal
assent has been given to the
measure.
Fires Come High
The fire season of 1917 was an
unusually severe one in Briiish
Columbia. Reports made to the
provincial forest branch show
that.exclusiveof the railway belt,
a total of 9S6 fires occurred. In
lighting these fires the forest
branch expended $88,246. The
total area burned over was 236,186
acres, of which only 2.825 acres
was merchantable timber land;
16,226 acres contained valuable
reproduction, and 159,386 acres
were classified as cut-over, old
burn not restocking, or unmerchantable mature timber. The
total damage done is estimated at
$291,726. The staff of the forest
branch has suffered severely
through enlistment for overseas
service.
The following telegram has
been received from the Canada
Food Board by W. E. Scott, deputy minister of agriculture at
Victoria:
"Ottawa, Ont, April 9, 1918.
"Had another interview with
Allied buyers about dehydrated
vegetables, and after repeated
cables to England, they state |
there are no present requirements
and they cannot forecast future
needs. We greatly regret our
efforts have been unavailing, but
we cannot overcome existing conditions. Please give this information wide publicity among
growers.
"Henry B. Thomson,
"Chairman, Canada
Food Board."

20 to 25 miles to a gallon of
gasoline is a frequent occurrence with the Ford car. One
man (name on request) reports
an average of 33 miles per gallon for 20,000 miles. Surely
this is a record that few, if
any other makes of cars, ever
equalled.
��� It demonstrates the economy
of owning and driving a Ford.
You can  average 1000 miles
more travel on Ford-size tires.
The saving on oil and repairs is proportionately large.   The
name  "Ford" stands for lowest cost and greatest service.

to beat the Kaiser.     Dig your

seeds, tend your  plants  with  a

peace.    Privates "spud", onion,
parsnip, carrot, leek,turnip,bean,
cabbage, marrow, are wanted for
armies billions strong to take the
great offensive in the food fight.

Bulkley valley will thi, year
step into first rank in the adaptation of modern methods to the
science of agriculture. This season will be the first to witness
the operation of a tractor in the
district.
While in town on Thursday, J.
C. K. Sealy, of the Sealy ranch,
made application for one of the
Ford tractors which the dominion
government is supplying to the
western farmers, and it is fully
expected the machine will arrive
in time for early spring work on
the ranch.
Some time ago the dominion
government, through the department of agricultuie, made an arrangement with the Ford Motor
Co. for 1000 of these tt actors and
W. E. Scott, deputy minister of
agriculture, is now in Victoria to
receive applications from British
Columbia farmers. The price of
the .i.achine is $795, under the
[ government plan.
Mr. Sealy is to be congratulated
! for his enterprise in this matter,
| and the degree of his success will
be the  measure of its general
adoption   on  Valley /arms.���Interior News.
