$2 PER YEAR
Lost in Mountains Five Days
0. South, a lad of eighteen
years, employed by Mr. Robert
Ruddock, on the Lytton-Lillooet
road, went out with a party of
boys last Sunday to hunt deer.
The lad got greatly excited on
seeing a big buck. He fired
one shot, ancl missed, but followed on the deer's track and
eventually killed him. Unfortunately, he got separated from his
companions, and being "green"
to the mountains, he was seon
lost, but eventually turned up in
the neighborhood of Little Hat
Creek, a distance of nearly sixty
miles from his starting point
Knowing absolutely nothing of
the country he endeavoured to
get information from an individ-
uai he met as to his whereabouts,
This individual refused to give
him any information unless he
paid the sum of $3.00. As the
lad had no money, and was footsore and weary from his long
"hike" in addition to being hungry, he was obliged to sell his
brand new rifle in order to satisfy the avarice of this inhuman
beast. The lad eventually reached Ashcroft on Thursday night,
and reported his safe return to
his friends by phone, they having been-'out searching for him
everyday since.—Journal.
New Pamphlet
We would like nothing better
than for this inhuman beast to
make a trip to Lillooet, and for
Mr. South to be here to identify
him.
General   News   oi;  Lillooet
District
Under the direction of the
Hon the Minister of Lands, an
attractive pamphlet entitled
"British Columbia Timber" has
been prepared for distribution
among the buyers in overseas
markets. It is intended to draw
the attention of importers overseas to the forest products of the
province, and especially to the
facilities for exporting British
Columbia lumber. Consisting of
nearly forty pages, and containing nearly thirty illustrations,
the pamphlet treats of the principal exportable woods, their
qualities and uses, together with
information concerning their
strength values, and suitability
for various uses.
The Road to Cariboo
BY  A.   MARTLEY
Land-clearing by settlers in the
Tete Jaune Cache district has
been extensively undertaken this
year, and good crops are reported
generally, especially in view of
the fact that many areas are virgin ground, and have been broken up for the first time this
year.
Now is the time to get. that
debating club formed for the
winter evenings.
Whenever you see a shadow,
it means there is a light close
by.

town during the past week.
Discontent of the salmon regulations is quite prominent.these
days,
Mr. Slocombe, teller of the local branch of the Bank of B.N.

cou\er.
Mr. T. P. Reed, who has been
spending the summer months in
the Chilcoten country, returned

are good is that section.
The Secretary of thQ Lillooet
War Fund has received a receipt
from Vancouver, for the sum of
$207.00, the amount recently sent
to No. 5 General Hospital C.E.F.
fund.
" What is the difference, "
a_ked the teacher, "between caution and cowardice?" Johnny,
who observed things carefully
for so youthful a person, answered: "Caution is when you're
afraid, and cowardice is when
the other fellow's afraid.
The sum of $1000.00 has been
forwarded to the Minister of
Militia for the purchase of the
Machine Gun. The Acting Minister of Militia in answer states
that he will arrange for the purchase a»d forwarding of the gun
to one of the battalions in service

tions for the C.E.F. No. 5 hos-
have reached the sum of $24,275.

are yet some good size places to
hear from which will in all probability bring the amount up to
$27,000.00.
Campers snd others are apt to
be careless regarding the wearing
of damp or wet clothing. This
practice is conductive to rheumatism and other ils. Care should
be taken to have clothing and
beds thoroughly dry and well
aired.
Lillooet the walled city and garden
of wonder
Thirty leagues from the ocean roar,
Where the comber from the far East
flings his thunder
By the bays on the Western shore,
Resumes her rightful role of the gate
to Cariboo,
Userped for fifty years
By another town, that knew
No respect of its gompers.
You can reach ti,e princely portal by
the I'.G. Eastern rail,
And take tlie King's highway to
Cariboo,
You can wander day by day along
the big white trail
And camp by night beneath the
tent of blue.
You will find a fine large country and
some fine large hearted folk,
Striving to do the best that in them
lies,
You may find a friendly smile or
hear a hearty joke,
Or get a kindly glance, from starry
eyes.
You'll see some lovely valleys, and
woods, and   lakes, and streams,
And over all you'll hear the call
Of a summer-land of dreamt.
Oh where on earth will you behold,
A lovelier, or more entrancing sight,
Than tke lake, and valley, of La
Hache, unfold,
In a moonlit August night?
Ancl you'll see great fields of grain
ashine
To the red horizon bars,
Aud lofty line of black-plumed pine
In a blaze of northern stars.
You will hear the hoot of the horned owl
And the were-wolf's foster child,
The grey coyote eerie howl
A pean to the wild.
; And the weird cry of the loon by night
I    And the honk of the geese at dawn,.
And the winnow of the wild duck flight
By upland lake, and lawn.
There are ranches in the gloaming
And homsteads in the haze,
Where the silky cows come homing
And the bells ring on the braes.
For the cheery word and pleasant smile
Thank God -as well you may -
They lighten the heart, and shorten
the mile,
When you roam on the big highway.
Provincial Fires
Advices reaching the Minister
of Lands concerning the fire situation prevailing in the various
forest districts of the province
show a great improvement in the
roast districts as a result of the
recent r^ins, although there is
yet some prospect of a recurrence
of fires owing to the drying out
of vegetation, that is, unless kept
in check by occasional showers.
Conditions continue to be safe in
the Hazelton district, while all
fires are out in the Tete Jaune
division. A serious fire broke
out at Pemberton Portage on
August 29, the fire front being-
two and a half miles wide, and
threatening timber limits. The
lattst report is to the effect that
heavy rain the same night and
following day has enabled this
outbreak to be got under control.
The situation in the Thompson
valley is serious, high winds
speeding the Blue river fire towards the timber line, an area of
nearly one thousand acres being
affected. In the Vernon district,
rains have improved the situation, but dry vegetation in the
open timber still constitutes a
hazard. Small fires are reported
in the Nelson and Cran brook districts, but occasional showers and
cool nights are doing much' to
keep the outbreaks in check.
The weather conditions thru-
out the province are gradually
becoming more favorable with
respect to forest fires, a lew barometer indicating showery and
unsettled weather.

Australian Cadets
To Play Here Saturday Sept. 18
"The Empire is our Country
and Australia is our Home."
This is one of the expressions
which has been used at public
gatherings by the leader ot* the
Australian "Cadet Students",
who will arrive in Lillooet Friday
evening (tonight) and stage their
remarkable Musical Comedy,
"Called to the Front," on Saturday evening. The young visitors
number thirty-five and were organized last year to make a tour
of the English-speaking world,
with the idea of promoting closer
relationship between the different dominions. Just on the eve
of their departure War was declared and all their plans regarding sailing dates were thrown into confusion. It was decided to
suspend the time of departure
until conditions became more set-
tied and a period of five months
delay was decided on and the
tourists left Austrrlia in February. In the meantime, however,
new conditions brought about by
the war, chiefly the necessity for
volunteers, reduced the group
from forty-five to thirty-five.
For a time it was thought that
the whole undertaking would be
best abandoned, but enquiry
showed that the^e was a big field
for Imperial service in the United
States. As twenty-five of the
young travellers had as part of
their preparation for the tour
been trained to give public lectures, it was seen that their ability in this direction could be turned to good account,
The party arrived in San Francisco in March and after taking a
prominent part in the Exposition
festivities, undertook a tour of 70
American, towB? and cities, al-
wa\s making their official entry
with colours flying and the band
playing inspiring martial airs.
The first halt after civic greetings and formal receptions was
usually at the leading High
Schooi, where permission had
obtained by tha advance manager, Mr. Shacklock, for the boys
to give short talks on the British
Empire and Australia. In order
te observe the order for neutrality, widely expressed by American people, the young lecturers
talked only on history, resources
and industries of their country,
avoiding any reference to the
war. The most fruitful of these
meeting was the fifteen or thirty
minutes set apart for the listen
ing students to ask questions.
Without exception, there was always one student, at least, who
would ask "what part is Australia playing in the war?" or an
equivalent query.
This  would give the Imperial
visitors foil license to cover the
whole war situation from the Allies standpoint,  beginning with
opening of hostilities, the entry
of the Empire inta the conflict
and the spontaneous response to
the "Call of Duty" from Australia,   Canada and New Zealand;
j thus were all the  niceties   de-
! manded by a strict observance of
| neutrality as the Americans desired it,   diplomatically covered
while the cause of the Allies was
being effectively presented in a
clinching and convincing manner.
The young speakers entered into their work with a zest and
ferver borne of an ever-present
pride in their country, and the
part she is playing in the great
struggle for human liberty.
One of the Cadets remarked to
a Vancouver citizen:- "You remember the story of the little
Du«h boy who saved part of his
country from being flooded out
by discovering just a little hole
in the wall of one »f the dykes
and holding his hand there until
GILLETTS
CLEANS-DISINFECTS
help arrived. If he hadn't have
done that the hole would have
grown bigger and bigger antil
the wall was washed away and
the land was under flood." We
felt something like that little boy,
bnt he had a torrent of water to
hold back, while we had to deal
with a flood of German lies.
Prior to leaving Melbourne, the
Federal Capitol, the young travellers were given an official send-
off from the Australian Commonwealth Government.
