'a-  if  Bar Stocked with Best Brands  \X of Liquor and Cigars  K  x  I A.   WINKLER,  Proprietor,  A Western Universities Battalion is  now being organized for overseas service. .British Colombia will furnish  one company. The headquarters of  the British Colombia Company is at  the University of ��������������������������� British Columbia,  cor. 10th Avenue anil Lanral Street,  Vancouver. A military camp is being  erected ��������� on the grounds to furnish  sleeping and messing quarters. Offices,  lecture room, reading room and other  facilities will be provided in the. University Buildings. An excellent  parade ground lies just across the  street,--the King Edward High School  grounds,���������which have been courteously placed at the disposal of the Company for drill f purposes. Suitable  ground for field operations lies within  a few minutes march of the i.-.-inip.  Recruiting for the British Columbia  Company has only just commenced,  but the organization and preliminary  twining of the companies in the  Prairie provinces are well advanced.  The training .of (he battalion will  probably be giveii at Camp Hughes,  Sewell, Manitoba, the finest military  (���������ampin Canada, when- the companies  will lie assembled as sunn as it is opened  this spring.  Judging by lhe experience of Alberta  and by the interest already shown in  British Columbia, the British Coliim  bin Company will be filled as soon as  the organization of the. unit becomes  kiiovvii tiiioufjli {.he -province.  On active   service- men are   thrown  into such close contact  with   one   another, and have so much time to while  away in the trenches,   n'n guard duty,  etc.,'that it counts  .tremendously   towards their pleasure and   happiness to  be -with associates of similar education,  tastes and intciests.    In  England battalions of   students .and    prufessinir.il  men were filled up   at once.    For men  of this type the special-battalion solved  the problem of voluntary   enlistment.  The suggestion   of the . Universities  of Manitoba,   Saskatchewan,   Alberta  and British   Columbia,   to   furnish   a  Universities Battalion,  was   therefore  warmly welcomed   by   the   Canadian  military authorities, and   acted   upon  at   once.    General   Sir   Sam    Hughes  ordered a special uniform   for this distinctive unit, the   first purely   university battalion to be   raised in  Canada.  For the higher commands officers with  overseas training   have been   selected.  The command of the   Battalion will  be entrusted to Major   D.   S. Mackay,  of  Manitoba   University,   at   present  second in command of the 27th Battalion C.   F.   A.   now   in   France.    Dr.  Mackay was a major in the 79th Cameron Highlanders before the   war, and  wtis giveii second in   command of   the  27th Battalion   upon its   organization  from among college graduates,   undergraduates, advanced   High School and  'Normal   School pupils,   law  students,  and men of this type.  The following resolutions have been  adopted by the University of British  Columbia with regard to students enlisting for Overseas service:  . (a) Students who, leave in their  fourth year will be given their degree  at the end of the session.  (b) Those who have attended . for  the major part of the year will be given their standing for year without examination.  (c) Students who. maintain their  standing in the matriculation year of  High School work in British Columbia  up to the time of enlistment for overseas service will be admitted to the  University without further examination on presentation of th.eir High  School credentials in detail.  Friends and relatives will be kept together as far as possible for sleeping,  messing, and training.  The B. C. Company will provide signallers for the B.ittal'-in.  Enlistment may lit made in person  at the Orderly Room, Geology Building, U. B. C, coiner of Laurel and  Tenth Avenue, or hi writing to the  Officer Commanding', B. 0. Company,  lOfifch. O. S.

Lance Corporal Blair Mills  Wrote to Hedley Friends  Pressing Need For  i     MINING NOTES     i  TlieSulIivii.il mine, East Kootenay,  is sending heavy zinc shipments to  Trail, now that tlii'y."U-elrolj*tic zinc  plant is absorbing more and more of  that class of ore.  W. N. Burke, associated with E. S.  Campbell in the ownership of the Gol-  ilen Rod, came up from Spokane'Saturday, with three miners and is personally in charge of the work at the  mine.  Last week the British government  bought 20(1,000,01)11 .pounds of copper/  the record metal sale recorded in history. And this week New York market repot ts the largest domestic sale  ever recorded. This is the day for the  copper property to come out of it.  Our recent ��������� announcement of the  death of Lance Corporal Blair Mills,  while' bearing arms in the service" of  his country, came as a shock lo our  readers with whom the young man  was very popular, especially in Hedley  where he worked for months before,  going away to the ft out.  Among his Hedley friends are Mr.  Mrs. Jaclc Naif to each of whom he  wrote a letter which bears the stamp  of the Field Post Office on March 23rd.  just a few days before his death. In  the letter'he mentions the fact that he  has been in the trenches and come out  alright, but expects to go back'the  next day.  The letter following is to Mr, Naif  and the other one to Mrs. Naff, in all  probability, the hist he wrote:  France, March 19, 1910  Dear Friend Jack.  I received your letter-and was glad  to hear from you. 1 gue.-s you think J  have forgotten you but I have been  moving so much that I have had no  chance to write lo you. I received  your letter and thought 1 would answer it light away as 1 don't know  when I can get a chance to write  again.  There isn't much to write about as  we are not allowed to write any of i.lu  news that is going on here so you will  have to excuse a short, letter and look  for a long one later on as I. can't think  ofnitich to say. '*'-'���������  Well I had <i good trip and a good  time when I was in England.  I have been to toe trenches ami  have come out safely and I guess I  will go back tomorrow.  ��������� Did   you   Hear about Vance?    He is  dead.  I guess I will close for this time.  Write soon.  Yours Truly,  L.O., Blair W. Mills  It must be plain to the most obtuse  and unreasoning mind that twenty-  f.iuior twenty-five million of men cannot be withdrawn even' from the  swarming population of'Europe without effecting a huge reduction in the  produce of-.l'abor and of the soil. Women may'in a nieasui e supply the phi- '  ces of men, but it must be remembered that women have also their sphere  in the economics of life. Tt.ei efore in  tnking them to the land they are lining 'taken, in the main, from other  employment. Consequently, if for  every man who goes to light there was  a women to take his place in agriculture or other industry there would,  still be a deficiency not only in labor  but in production. At the present  time -100,000 women are being called  for to take the place of 2511,000 British  soldiers recruited from farm work.  . Hence it is clear that no matter  what steps may be taken, either-during the war or al'ti r tin; war, there  must be an enormous shortage of the  requirements across lhe Atlantic for  many ycais to come. And that shortage for a period subsi qttciit to the declaration of peace will lie felt as keenly  as at any time during the gigantic  struggle.  wg  HEDLEY MEAT  MARKET  fl   B  All kinds of fresh and  cured meats always on  hand.

He will leave the trenches in time to  take over the Universities Battalion  when it assembles in the training  camp.  The second in command will be Major R. W. Brock, of the 72nd Overseas  Battalion Sea forth Highlanders of  Canada. In civil life Major Brock is  Dean of the College of Applied Science,  University of British Columbia. Before the organization of the University  he was Director of the Geological Survey of Canada, and Deputy Minister of  the Department of Mines. Major  Brock has personal charge of the organization of the British Columbia  Company.  The   battalion   is    being   recruited  Signs accumulate that, some day in  the not too distant future, silver will  be remonetised. When that time  comes it will be another good thing  for B. C. mines. We can remember  when silver sold for over a dollar an  ounce���������in the earliest and palmiest  d.-ivs of the Slocan. Let us hope it will  come again.���������Trail News.  The incorporation of the Hudson  Bay Zinc company, with a nominal  capital of $."),(XK),000 in 1,000,000 shares  of per value of $5 each, has been gazetted at Victoria, B. C. The chief  object of the company is to acquire  from Messrs. Maurice W. Bacon and  W. E. Cullin, Jr. of Spokane, options  to purchase' 14 mineral claims near  Salmo, B. C, including the H. B.,  Leadville, Zincton and other mining  properties.  Prof. Odium in the course of an address to the Vancouver Chamber of  Mines recently, stated that from 1891  British Columbia had contributed no  less than SI per cent of the total mineral production of the Dominion of  Canada. He estimated that over 12,  01)0 men were employed in mining and  allied industries in the province, and  drew attention to the exporation from  British Columbia of large quanities of  gold by Chinese, who worked abarul-t  oned placer claims. |  France, March 20, 1916  Dear Friend;  I received your letter and am going  to write you a few lines just to say I  am still alive and feeling fine hope you  .are the same.  How is Oley and the baby. I guess  John puts most of his time in playing  with it.  Well you asked tne how I like old  England. It is some place, I would  not give two feet of old England or  Canada for the whole of France, as I  don't like it.  I have been in the trenches and it  isn't so bad, a fellow has to keep his  head down.  How is old Bob and Mrs. Simons  getting along. Well I don't think this  war will last more than this year at  the most. I can't write a very long  letter for there isn't any news to write  for we are not allowed to write anything we see or hear. We have to be  very careful what we say here.  Well I guess I will say good-bye fortius time and try and write more next  time.  Yours Truly,  L. C, Blair W. Mills, No. 443SI2  Thursday last Mrs. J. H. Innis, of  Keremeos, returned home, after having a pleasant visit with Dr. and Mrs.  McEwen.  Joe Armstrong was a yisitor to Hedley Saturday. He is talking copper  pretty strong and will likely put in  sometime on his Aspen Grove property this summer.  With the mutual sctamble  for existence resumed there will be  less immediate government control���������  in other woids there will be less systematic regulation of supplies. To  '-(Meet-Lhe huge denwinds that"must succeed extra consumption, tremendously-  less production and immensely greater  wastage, there will be abundant use,  not for one year's bountiful crops, but  for similar blessings during a score of  successive years. Where and how can  this assured demand be uieL? There is  but one answer to flv dual question���������  by I he tiiii.leva-l a led ��������������������������� .in: ; i s .1 mi by  redoubled eiToi-ts at production in  those countries.  That Canada is not the only country  that has not had its   resources in large  part exhausted  or destroyed,   is true;  but there is plenty of reason to believe  that the nations  of Europe not engaged in the war-,   have been drawn upon  to the   utmost   by those  so   engaged;  hence   when the   time conies   till eyes  will be . turned   from east   to west for  succor.    Canada, being   the nearest to  the great  center   of  demand,   will, of  necessity, apart from sentimental reasons, be   the first   looked to   and  will  have   the greatest,   opportunity.    The  bogey   of  released   Russian   harvests  has been on parade since the war commenced,   but Russia,   with twelve   or  fifteen   million   men   called to   arms,  largely of the peasant class, has suffered ,-ind is suffering, like the rest.    She,  too, will need reorganizing, rejuvenating and  regenerating.    Hence,   while  for a few  months after   the outbreak  of   hostilities,   there may  have   been  something to be expected from the release of  stores   of wheat  and   other  grain   from  Odessa   and other  Black  Sea ports,   there  is nothing   available  now   and there   may be   little in   the  next decade.    Hence,  Canada's role is  plain���������to   go on producing,   to go   on  garnering and storing, if necessary, in  the sure and certain   hope of ultimate  profit   and   prosperity.   There   never  was a time, and probably never will be  another time, when we were more urgently called   upon to   produce, in increased quantities, not alone all articles of food,   but every   article that enters into the   industrial life of peoples.  A. Robertson,   of Keremeos,  was in  town Saturday.  BBS  rnttie THE HEDLEY GAZETTE, APRIL 20,   191B  Cbe Ibed^y Gazette  and  Similkameen Advertiser.

This regiment is "now in France having moved across at the latter end of  February, and is engaged in construction work. Before leaving England  . the regiment received a great supply  of tools and equipment for railway  and other work, and though fully  trained and equipped ar- an Infantry  Battalion it will be employed except  on emergency-, solely as a battalion of  workmen. All descriptions of-trades  and occupations are represented in this  Pioneer .13 ittalion but those 'mostly in  request are carpenters, linesmen, railway construction men, miners, loggers  and the like. The general bandy man  is also a very useful member of the  corps.  Towards the end of January recruit;  ing for a reinforcing draft of three  officers and one hundred men was  started, the recruits however were not  assembled until the middle of Febru-  ' ary and on the 5th. March they left  Victoria, en route for England where  by this time they should have arrived,  that is, the draft is in England within  ' two months bfstai-iing recruiting, "  A second draft of similar strength  wtis authorized and recruiting for this  has been so satisfactory that the draft  is now up to strength aud will be  ready to embark within a couple of  weeks.  A third draft is now starting and if  recruits for this offer as readily as fertile first two drafts it is expected that  this third reinforcement will be ready  to leave for England by the middle of  May.  Men who wish to get away with the  least possible delay and see a little of  France before the summer is well  through cannot do better than join the  reinforcing draft now being assembled  at the Old Drill Hall, Menzies St., Victoria, where recruits can apply in person. Those not in Victoria can apply  by letter and recruits passed medically fit and approved will have their  transportation sent them to enable  them to join without expense.  Lieut. McMurray will be in Hedley  shortly. Men wishing to join this  corps of Pioneers should apply to him  at this Office.

From  this viewpoint it is our true policy to augment our financial strength by multiplying our  productive exertions and by exercising rigid economy, which reduces to the minimum  all expenditures upon luxuries and non-essentials. Only in this way shall we be able  to make good the loss caused by the withdrawal of so many of our workersfrom industrial activities, repair the wastage of the war, and find the funds for its continuance. It  cannot be too frequently or too earnestly impressed upon our people that the heaviest  burdens of the conflict still lie before us, and that industry and thrift are, for those  who remain at home, supreme patriotic duties upon whose faithful fulfilment  our success, and consequently our national safety, may ultimately depend."���������  SIR THOMAS WHITE, Minister of Finance.

L.  drew quite a crowd, and all seemed to  enter with all cheir zest into   the   enjoyment   of the   occasion.    It   sure is  hard times   in   Hedley   if one were to  judge by the   appearance  of the   dancers.    While no   one r.-onld he   said to  be actually in a needy condition as regards apparel a   few collars   and   ties  and some dress shirts   would   not   he  amiss.    Jim Cody and Joe White among the men, had the courage of their  convictions and appeared "as"''seedy as  two fine looking and   prosperous   citizens could appear, while   Miss Bowerman and Mrs. F.   French   managed to  draw the   sympathy of the dancers in  their     needy    condition.    The   Beau  Brummel of the orchestra H. E. Hanson appealed in neglie-ee and   sweater-  arid the leader, Mr. Rainbow appeared  in a patched-up and   faded outfit that  Paderewski would most certainly   repudiate.    The music   was fine despite  the frayed out appearance of the players and each number met with numor-  ous recalls.    Altogether the affair was  a huge success and goes   into   history  as another of the lodge's affairs which  met with the unequivocal approval of  the public.  Mrs. John Hossack and Katy Humbly took in the dance at Hedley Tuesday evening.  School teacher Scutt attended the  dance at Hedley Tuesday' and reports  a very good time.  Mr. and Mrs. T.

The  call to all is to produce more and more. It may be  necessary to work harder. The place of those who  enlist must be taken by those at home, men and  women, old and young. The more wc produce the  more wc can save. Produce more on the farms and  in the gardens.    Save more and help to win the war.  LET US NOT WASTE OUR LABOUR���������  In this war-time all labour should be directly productive or should be assisting in production. Make it  as efficient as possible. If your labour is on something  that can be postponed, put it* off till after the war and  make your labour tell now. Making war is t he _ first  business of all Canadians. Efficiency in labour is as  important as efficiency in lighting.  LET   US   NOT  WASTE  MATERIALS���������  Begin at home. The larger portion of salaries  and wages is spent on the home���������food, fuel, light,  clothing. Arc any of these things being wasted ?  S20.00 a year saved from waste in every home in  Canada will more than pay the interest on a war debt  of So00,000,000.  LET   US  SPEND  OUR   MONEY   WISELY���������  Arc you spending your money to the best advantage ? What do you think of extravagance in war  time ? Tens of thousands of Canadians arc daily  risking their lives for us at home. Is it not our duty  to be careful and economical ? Canadian dollars are  an important part of the war equipment. Make them  tell. Have a War Savings Account. Buy a War  Bond.  V   Nickel Plate Nuggets   I  Lots of snow this week.  L. Gezon was a visitor to town  Thursday.

Intelligent Selection  Not only interest but real  value attaches to the question  ������f carefully noting the individual performance of each cow in  tho herd. It is only after keeping a complete record that one  finds such a strange contrast as  this: of two five year old cows  in one herd, both fresh the same  day, both dried off the same  week, one gave 5,-15-1 pounds of  milk and 213 pounds of fat, the  other gave only 3,570 pounds of  milk and 153 pounds of fat.  Most probably the owner would  not have taken a bet at tlie beginning of the season that the  one cow could bring in over  twenty-two dollars more than  the other, but she did.  In another ��������� section, of two  cows the same age. one gave  8,430 pounds of milk and 302  pounds of fat, but the other  gave only 1,090 pounds of milk  and 07 pounds of fat. Is there  a difference of eighty-eight  dollars in the earning power of  any two cows in your herd?  Building up a profitable dairy  herd includes the selection of  good individual cows. The rational method is to weigh the  milk aud test samples regularly  for fat. Write to the Dairy  Division, Ottawa, for information on cow testing, so that  your selection may be intelligent, so that your profits may  be larger.  and much more durable than 13,-irtern  larch, the .sterling qualities of this  species- ;ire described in the bulletin  for the information of lumber.dealers  and wood-users.
