Poultry Association to respectfully draw your readers' attention to the fact that the season for preserving eggs is now here.  The present low price of eggs offers  householders a splendid opportunity  to secure good reliable eggs for this  purpose. In packing che eggs the  housewife keeps down the expenses  and also aids in supporting the poultry industry at a time when conditions  are far from satisfactory. When buying the purchaser should insist on  getting fresh, infertile egg*. AV.iter-  glas". is the best medium for presetva-  tioii. "Wooden or earthenwate receptacles aie used to hold the eggs and  liquid, and care should be taken to  see that the former aie clean and free  from odoi s. Directions as to the use of  water-glass are given with the liquid.  Cracked or dirty eggs should not be  packed. When taken out of the preservative the eggs should be pricked  with a needle before being used.  In conclusion, permit me to mention that, owing to the high cost of  poultry feed stuffs, large numbers of  fowls are being killed in the province.  The number of chicks raised this year  will also he materially curtailed, Both  these facts point to the possibility of  ii more than usual scarcity of eggs  next winter, hence the advice to preserve, eggs now, when they are-at  their cheapest..

KITCHENER FALLS    -  INTO LINE FIRST  Earl Kitchener, at present the foremost figuie in'Great Britain, is the  first one to follow tlie example of King  George in banishing alcoholic liquors  from his household. He gave orders  on April 1st that no intoxicating drink  is to be used in his household for the  remainder of the war.  BEHOLD THE FISHERMAN!  He l'iseth up early in the morning and  disturbeth the whole household ;  Mighty are his preparations;  He goeth forth full of hope;  When the day is far spent he retuin-  eth, smelling of strong drink and  the truth is not in him.  Report of the President.  February 20th, 1915.  To the Stockholders of the  .Hedley Gold Mining Company:  During the past year everything in  general, at mine and mill, has gone  along very well.  The ore bodies now being opened in  lower levels continue to hold their  size and value. Everything seems to  indioite a long life for our mine.  Our Superintendent, Mr. Jones, and  his assistants are to be commended fordoing good work and economical work  on our new power plant which should  give us a surplus-, power to' develop  some portions of our property not now  being worked. .We hope that this new  and cheaper power will increase our  earnings enough to pay for the new  development work planned as above  mentioned.  For detailed information I submit  tlie reports of the Superintendent and  Treasurer.  Yours truly,  I. L. Merrill, President.

Gillespie, druggist.  Report of the General Superintendent.  Hedley, B.C., Feb. 13,1915.  To the President and Stockholders,  Hedley Gold Mining Company:'  Gentlemen :  For the year 1914 your mill has  treated 78,494 tons of ore of an average assay value of $I0.S0, and having  a total assay value of $847,349.39.  Extraction by concentration .?(!it,S5l.5S  Extraction by eyanidation  lo2,l8i).lS  Tolal $797,310,715  or w.eo#  All the ore treated in 1914 has been  mined from the Nickel Plate property.  Practically all the development work"  done has been in the nature of extensions of drifts, inclines, crosscuts or  stupes, all this work has been in ore,  waste having been encountered only  in passing through the Andesite sheets  which form the foot and hanging  walls of the ore. The boundaries of the  big stopes in the upper section have  been extended east and west beyond  the lines of payable ore bodies as pre-  viouslv estimated. The ore on the east  side is still of satisfactory grade and  strength, which indicates considerable  more ore in-that diiection. The ore. in  the old stopes is being left while the  lower levels are heipg pushed forward  into new country. The stopes in No. 5  Incline below No. 4 Tunnel level have  all pi oduced high grade ore, and drill  holes from the thiid level through the  foot wall indicate another section of  payable ore. Assays of the cores taken  from these holes average $20.00 per  ton. This ore will-be mined from the  second level of the Dickson'Incline.  The Dickson Incline itself has been  extended to 750 feet and stations cut  at the 100, 200 and 600 foot levels, the  whole Incline fitted with pockets add  all necessary equipment, so that it is  in first class shape for doing good  work. Stopes have been opened up on  Ihe first, second and sixth levels, all of  satisfactory grade; the stopes on the  sixth level, however, produce a rather  better grade than the others. A 160 ft.  raise running from the sixth level of  the Dickson Incline to the fourth level  of No. 5 Incline above has been holed  through and is provided with two sta  tions, from both of which good ore is  being mined as well as from the top of  the Raise and from the 600 level, making all told four separate, inclined beds  of ore which are being mined through  this Raise, into the pockets of the 600  level of the Dickson Incline. The sinking of the Dickson Incline has beer,  resinned and should intersect and open  up large bodies of payable ore below  already proved by diamond drill holes.  The indications from this section, as  well as from the ground northeast  from the Dickson Incline below No. 4  Tunnel, are very promising. From the  No. 5 Incline drifts have been run out  in this direction from each of the levels  and all have encountered payable ore  shoots. The total footage of new work  done during the year has not been  huge, due primarily to want of power.  Fortunately the mine has not suffered,  as tho ore sections are in first class  shape for mining and it is not difficult  to hold the present grade.  In the month of December, 1913, we  A   CORRECTION  In the last issue of the Gazette the  Golf Club announced that the monthly medal competitions would be played  on Saturday, Sunday and Mondavi  this should have read Thursday, Friday and Saturday. Subsequent coin-  petitions will be played on these days  in the second week.of each month,  commencing on Apiil Sth.  wcie  authorized   by  the  Direclois to  select a site on the Similkameen  river  and   submit   proposals   for a   hydroelectric  power  plant  which was done  and  the plans  accepted.   Work   was  commenced on the dam about January  1,1914,   and  the.  whole plant was finished and in operation January 2,1915.  The location of the dam is on the Situ-.  ilkame.en  river,: just below ilsconflu-  ence   with Twenty  Mile creek.     The  dam is of the stoplog type; from it the  water, is  conveyed into  a -flume, nine  by seven feet in inside dimensions, for  fifteen  thousand feet  to  the .forhay,  which supplies  the  turbines  through  an eight foot steel penstock.  The twin  turbines,  of  the  Francis  type,   were  built by S. Morgan Smith Co., of York,  Pennsylvania.,  and .have a capacity of  2100 horse power.   The K..V. A. alternating current generator and all the  electric machinery at the power house  were supplied by the Canadian West-  inghouse Co.   The governor was provided by the Lombard  Governor  Co.  There has also been installed, in an addition to the old power  house,   a  new  2,000   foot   compressor,   built-by   the  Canadian   IngersoII-Rand  Co., and direct-coupled   to   a   Canadian   General  Electric   synchronous    motor   of   410  horse power.   This unit, together with  the present compressor, which will also  be driven by fin electric motor, should  supply ample  compressed  air for the  mine and allow a surplus.   The new  plant started off without a hitch and  has been operating satisfactorily ever  since.  During the year all other departments have been brought to their  highest efficiency. Special mention  may be made of a new tube mill which  has been purchased and is now being  installed. We have also added to our  mill equipment a new 21 x 36 Traylor  Jaw Crusher. At the mine all the  buildings have been rearranged, so as  to have the men's sleeping quarters as  Concludod on Pago Four.

Hedley Branch, -       C. P. Daltoti^'Manager  THE LIQUOR QUESTION  IN GREAT BRITAIN  ,       c  There, is no reason to suppose, that  drink is causing any greater economic  loss in Great Britain than it did. in  time of peace. This is the time of urgency in the production of war equipment and military supplies, and every  retarding influence is emphasized. The  situation lias called attention to the  great loss of time by workingme n  Had it been merely a question of the  loss of earnings and savings by artisans  and their families, or of the damage  suffered by contractors, the Chancellor  of the Exchequer would not have intervened by raising the question of  drink. He might have considered it  important, but would not have been  impressed with the urgency of the  matter. But just now the War and  Admiralty offices are straining every  nerve to provide the material for this  great war. Unlike Germany Britain  did not lay up a heavy stock of such  equipment.- No government had  dreamed of a time when it would be  necessary to provide for an army of  three millions. But when every .workshop in the land engaged in producing  military stores, or capable of doing so,  was urged to work at full capacity it  was found that the full capacity could  not be reached or approached because  a large proportion of the employees  were unsteady. After much study  some of the minisl< > s and some high  officials reached the conclusion that  tho remedy could not he found by  mere local measures, or by forbidding  certain classes of artisans to drink.  Britain is seriously considering the  Russian example of ..total prohibition  iis   a   war   measure.    Many   protest  The British Columbia Liberals . al  their 'convention in Vancouver .���������have  announced the platform on which they  will ask the electorate, to vote "them to  the. treasury benches at the forth-  coining elections.  They promise investigations into  public iill'airs, abolition of patronage,  improved legislation on the recent  Workmen's'Compensation Act. Curtailment of Railway sssistnnee as new  land policy, etc. The policy looks  like an endeavor towards an improve  inent on recent legislation hut so far  is very indefinite .-is to what ���������impi-ove-  .inents'ihey would make. The present  government has been continually returned to power by-reason of their  Province-wide development' policies  such as better roads, more, railways,  assistance to fanners' union, .-ind the  general business like ' administration  of Provincial affairs. The near  future will be productive of much  oiatory from both parties and present  indications point to a very hotly contested campaign.-  -HOTEL SIMI LKAMEENi  HEDLEY, B. C.

Dear Sir:  As I have been asked numerous  questions at different times on trie  cultivation of flowers, if you will allow  me a small space of your valuable  ���������paper I will endeavor to give n few  pointers oii th-? cultivation of toipe.of  the more common and beautiful  flowers as I have found the most satisfactory way to cultivate.  Hedley being gifted with the most  perfect drainage, one can grow almost any flower that will grow north  of the 49th parallel, if they will'use  plenty of water in the proper way.  This is where I have found that a  great ninny mistakes fire made. No  person can do justice to a flower garden in Hedley by springkling the top  of the. ground with the hose once a  day. I find I get better results if I  give the ground a thorough soaking  iind then let it go for two oiA three  days, according to weather. Too  frequent watering causes shallow  rooting. Deep rooting is a very im:  portant matter in the production of a  perfect flower.  A few years ago I was told that  Roses would not grow in Hedley. It  is true that they will not grow here as  they do some places, but by getting  the right kind and applying a little  labor yon will be well paid for your  trouble. The hardy Hybrid Perpetual  ,'ire by far the best roses to grow here,  especially .for the beginner. As they  are  the   nearest to   the  briar, their  wood is the hardest and will withstand  winters  without, any   protection,   although it pays  to  give  them  a little  protection   of   straw   manure.    They  should not be protected lill the ground  has  been frozen  down  two  or  three  inches,   as  this   protection   is  not  to  keep them from freezing   but to  keep  the frost in the ground in case  a. thaw  comes as'that is when  the 'damage is  done.    Do not  be  afraid   to prune,  a  hardy Hybrid Perpetual.    Cut them  back at least two  thirds of the.  new  growth and make them  throw out as  much new wood as yon can as it is the  new  wood  that  bears   the blossoms.  Put about   three    inches  of   manure  around the bushes  as a  mulch and it  will answer for two  purposes, first as  a fertilizer and second as  it helps to  hold the moisture and  the bushes do  not lequireso much water and arc not  so apt, to mildew.    Mildew is one of  ti'.G most deadly diseases among roses,  but it can be held in check by dusting  the bushes with  flowers   of sulphur  which must be applied as soon  as  the  mildew is noticed.    Mildew is  recognized by small whitish grey spots appearing probably on just one leaf, but  it will spread over  the whole  bush in  48 hours.if weather conditions are in  its favor and it is   not checked.    To  apply the flowers of sulphur wet the  bush well with a fine spray from  the  hose, and  if you  have  not a proper  bellows to  blow it on  with use a salt  shaker.  There is a little reddish brown bug  with an armor plate on his back, and  a, bill as long as our local grocerytnan  sends in the first of the month. This  is the insect that is known as the rose  beetle. He is death on buds. He  makes his appearance about the middle of June just as the bushes are beginning to blossom, drills asmall hole  in the bud with this long bill of his  and kills the bud which withers, dries  up, and dries up.in a few days.  The only way to battle with this insect is to hand pick him. He does  his work in the hottest part of the  day, usually between 12 and 3 p.m.  The longest time I have noticed them  on my roses is a week or ten days,  when they disappear as suddenly as  they came. There is another.troublesome little pest that is known as the  rose maggot. This is noticed first by  the end of the new growth withering  and drooping as if from the hot sun,  but if you will pinch this withered end  off and examine it you will find'a tiny  little worm eating down in the tender  heart of the shoot. , Hand picking is  the only remedy I know of for these  two pests, which is not such a task as  one would think, us neither of them  stay for any length of time. Aphis  troubles a little, but one good spraying  with black leaf (extract of tobacco) is  all I h-ive.cver had to do to get rid of  them.  Climbers are more subject to mildew than bush roses. Among the  many kinds I have tried I have at  last found one that is perfectly hardy  nnd free from mildew and all insects. It is the American Pillar which  has beautiful bright green foliage.  The blossoms aie the same as the wild  rose but larger and grow in clusters of  10 to 00 in ii cluster. It blooms about  the middle of June and stays in bloom  lill the first of August. Climbers  should be pruned a little, after they  ars done blooming, for it is the year-  old shoots in the climber that blossoms  i.e. the growth that is made this year  will bloom next year.  In purchasing rose bushes do not  get over two.year old bushes for you  gain nothing. The roots are all cut  away, so it takes two years before the  bush is itself again. For my part I  prefer pot grown plants as you get all  the roots and the plants start to grow  at once.  In planting rose bushes do not use  manure around the roots as it causes  air cavities in the soil which dry the  roots out. Pack the soil siround the  roots well by tramping it with the  feet (the bigger the feet the better)  and put the manure, on top as before  stated. Follow these simple instructions, take an interest in the work and  you can have roses us well as anyone.  S. E. H.  is the great music festival  of the year.
