A»W«WSAA:
A large number of friends and
relatives from here motored to
Lytton on Saturday night to say
good-bye to the boys from Lillooet and vicinity who left with
the 102nd Battalion, Northern
British Columbia (Warden's Warriors), on their long journey to
England. The train, which consisted of thirty cars, was in two
sections and passed through Lytton between seven and eight
o'clock Sunday morning, stopping
just long enough for the friends
of the soldier-boys to wish them
God-speed and a safe return. All
the boys looked well and were
eager to get to the firing line.
The Battalion got a big send-
off at Vancouver, hundreds of
men, women and children being
at the depot, and there was no
mistaking the heartiness of the
cheers which sped the troop
trains away.
The men were mobilized at
Comox Spit and were nearly all
personally selected by Lieut.-Col.
Warden. As a result of this
policy, the battalion will take a
lot of beating in the matter of
physique.
The battalion crossed from
Comox on the Princess Charlotte
and a general holiday waa observed at Comox, Union Bay,
Courtenay, Cumberland and
Campbell River in order that the
residents might give the men a
sendoff.
On the wharf at Vancouver
great interest centred around the
battalion's mascot, a bear, which
will be placed in the Zoo in London during the battalion's service
at the front.
There was an incident which
had its pathetic side. While the
men were assembling on the dock
one of the privates, in full marching order, was quietly married to
his fiancee in the customs office.
While on a pleasure jaunt on
Tuesday evening the Prospector
man paid a visit to the Dr. 0. M.
Jones ranch on the west side of
the Fraser, about six miles from
Lillooet, and was agreeably surprised at what he saw there.
This farm consists of about 1200
acres, 300 of which can be cultivated, the balance being pasture
land. There is a magnificent
barn, capable of housing 30 head
of horses, and being fitted up
with box stalls and every require:
ment necessary for the comfort
of the animals. Seventy-five tons
of hay was stored in the loft of
this barn at one time. Another building deserving of mention is the cow stable, with room
for SO head of stock. At present
the stock, which is all of the
highest grade, consists of 95 head
of cattle and 25 horses, besides a
number of hogs and a quantity of
poultry.
An addition is being made to
the house occupied by Mr. Munro,
the very capable manager, and
his estimable wife, and a first-
class building to be used as a
dairy is also in course of construction. Dr. Jones is preparing to build a residence on the
form, which he will use as a
summer home, and the lumber is
already on the ground for this
purpose. This structure will be
35x53 feet, with 10-ft. verandas,
and will probably be the best
building of its kind in this district. Mr. Clark, an expert carpenter, from London, Ont, 'has
charge of the work.
CANADIAN PATRIOTIC FUND
The following is a further list
of monthly subscribers to the
above Fund:
Chief Charlie Lusk. 50c.; A. C.
Phair, $5; M. Taylor, 11; Donald
A. Manson, $1; A. Martley, 50c.;
Chas. Keary, 50c; H. Reed, $3.
Subscribers are again urged to
have their monthly donations in
the hands of the treasurer at the
earliest possible moment after
the close of the month, as this
money is needed immediately by
the Provincial Branch, Victoria.

MEMORIAL
Kitchener is dead ! O, K. of K !
Weeps o'er no nobler head the salt sea
spray.
When thy great Spirit quit its splendid
clay,
A friend to England's friends did'st pass
away.
Though Britain's eyes be blurred  with
tears,
The heart of Britain bravely bears.
Good soldier and good statesman foully
slain,
Yet still thy puissant sword and pen
remain.
And still triumphant over foe and grave,
Thy soaring Soul shall sit in great conclave.
The gulfs and chasms thou has spanned
With noble mind and mighty hand,
The great offensive thou hast planned
Shall culminate on German land,
And victory light the grandeur gloom
That stills the tumult on thy tomb.

WINTER STORAGE.
The food question has become an all-important one
and how to get the largest
yield from the soil for labour
and expenditure, and also
how to care for that yield
till the last ounce is consumed, are questions now of the
very deepest concern. The
governments of our country,
Provincial and Dominion,
have rendered great service
by their appeals for increased
production of foodstuffs,
which have been responded
to in a splendid spirit of
patriotism. Valuable information in regard to the
best methods of cultivation
accompanied those appeals
and this information t will
"bear fruit" long after the
necessity for the appeal has
passed away. There is no
question of doubt but the aggregate of foodstuffs resulting from the cultivation even
of 66-foot lots last year must
have been enormous. The
prospect for the present year
is unhappily not so encouraging, as public attention is
diverted by other questions
of a provincial character.
But while the governments
have done well so far, they
should go a little further to
round off the good work.
There is no denying the fact
that even among intelligent
farmers very much foodstuff
goes to waste every year
through a lack of expert
knowledge of the proper
methods of winter storage.
Now that meat is becoming
so dear and the health-giving
properties of vegetables becoming better known, the
tendency to use more of these
and less of that is becoming
more general. But some of
the most perishable disappear just when they are most
relished. Even the cabbage
head, which a few years ago
was looked upon only as a
despised adjunct of fat pork
to be used by those of the
most robust constitution, is
today recognized as one of
the best foods in some forms
of indigestion. Butjustnow
it is seldom seen on the
market. There must surely
be some inexpensive way of
storing vegetables, and that
way should be known to all
concerned.
As different substances require different temperatures,
so that what would suit one
might not suit another, the
task of planning some cheap
method that would meet all
the requirements of the
farmer should be undertaken
by the government. The necessity for an expert's brain
here may be seen from the
following four examples:
Butter (long storage) requires
If you want to have some
one working  for you, put
some money in the bank.
w
Thrift is not cheese-paring,
but an intelligent use of food
and other resources, the
habit of sacrificing personal
interests to the nation's.
vv
If lies were fertilizers, there
would be enough spread over
British Columbia the next
three months to make this
province blossom like a rose.
w
In this province we need
more justice and fewer laws.
Too many third rate lawyers
wobbling and squabbling in
the  political   foggy  sea.—
Ledge.
w
"Were half the power that
fills the world with terror,
Were half the wealth bestowed on camps and courts,
Given to redeem the human
mind from error,
There were no need of arsenals or forts."
Produce more and consume
or destroy less is a simple,
effective and unassailable
formula, but economies that
cause unemployment without
the certainty of resultant
greater production should be
avoided as worse than useless.
w
On every hand one sees
evidence of waste throughout the country as well as in
the cities. The farm home,
the country hotel, the school
child, the youth and maiden,
all show the same disposition
to regard food, clothing,
furniture and books with
carelessness and prodigality,
w
The tremendous losses that
have been suffered by agriculture in Europe since Aug.,
1914, baffle imagination. In
France alone, in the part invaded by Germany, it is estimated that 610,000 horses,
1,500,000 head of cattle,
1,600,000 sheep, 700,000 pigs
and 3000,000 fowls have been
destroyed. In Belgium the
damages to agriculture
amount to over $280,000,000,
including about $130,000,000
for cattle and other domestic
animals slaughtered.

TO THOSE THEY LEFT BEHIND.
(A Poem for the Patriotic Fund.)
Your wives flit round about your homes,
And give you of their care;
Some of the boys who went left wives
As kind and just as fair;
Tour wives have all the joys they need,
Their dresses warm and neat—
How could you see a soldier's wife
111 clad upon the street!
You have your little children safe,
You watch their happy play,
They laugh and romp about your krccs
Till you are glad as they;
Some boys who went have children too,
Who oft their days beguiled;
God loves the children; He'll love thoso
Who help a soldier's child:
You still possess a mother
To give her love to you;
The boys who went have mothers
Who dearly love them too;
Then for the fond ftld mothers
Who watch, and fret and pray , 2    '..
Arise above all selfishness
And give your mite to-day. .-,
You have your father living,
But age has round him clung,
Yet he proclaims how he would fight
If he were strong and young; j   ';~
The soldier boys left fathers
As noble and as true;
Qive, give for those old jgrey haired men
Who gave their sons for you.
And there are others dear to you
Whom you are joyed to tend,
Old folks to whom you long have been
A comforter and friend;
The boys who went left these ones too
Appealing to your store;
You will not miss all that is asked,
So give a little more.
Thus -giving and thus helping
You will be aiding on
The struggle that will have no end
Till victory has shone; '?.-
Each bill you give is as a shell
Shot at the Kaiser's heart;
Shoot, shoot, and shoot until that hell
Is shot and rent apart.
Oh! drop those dollar bombs until
Our fiendish German foes
Are beaten back to the abyss
Prom which at first they rose;
Give, give your brave assistance
Until the earth is free—
Upon the struggle rests the fate
Of you as well as me.
—M. A. HARGADON.

PROVINCIAL AND GENERAL NEWS
John Calder, of the Bonaparte,
is making some surveys for the
Dominion government in the
neighborhood of Criss Creek.
An Indian named Charles Spac-
hen died at the Merritt hospital
recently, aged 68 years.
A great deal of prospecting
and developing is being done on

WAR NEWS
No Excuse to be Without Reliable Up-to-Date News
From Battle Front.
We have pleasure in announcing an
arrangement completed with that great
family paper The Family Herald and
Weekly Star of Montreal by which we
can offer The Prospector and The Family Herald and Weekly Star for the balance of 1916 or until Jan. 1st, 1917, for
the small sum of $1.00.
The Family Herald and Weekly Star
is noted for its reliable war news summaries each week and is replete with
most interesting stories from the bat-
tlefront. The Family Herald and
Weekly Star is a family paper all Canada is proud of, and when combined
with The Prospector, our readers are
supplied with all the local news and
news of the world. In addition to the
news the reader receives in The Family
Herald each week a magazine section
equivalent to several of the best monthly magazines printed. The agricultural
section is another feature of that great
weekly which is keenly appreciated and
is alone worth many times the subscription price. We now offer the two
papers for only $1.00 until 1st of January, 1917. Present readers of The
Prospector may have The Family
Herald and Weekly Star for the balance
of 1916 for only Forty cents.
