The machinery  that arrived this week comprises a 50-  horsepower boiler; a hoist, a '4-drill  compressor and a battery of pumps.  ���������Merritt Herald,  The war is being brought home to  us these clays as never brfore. Although the greater- number of our recruits have escaped so far, Lhe decisive  actions in and around Verdun have  drawn some of them into the maelstrom, and we niust: expect to hear of  wounds and even deaths.  It was a decided shock, however, to  learn of the death-- of one of our Kere-  meos-Bedlvy boys, Blair- Mills, who  fell in the action at St. Eloi on March,  27th., one of the most bloody of the,  numerous engagements in connection,  with the Huns'fuliie efforts to lake  Verdun. ;-  His father-, Ezra Mills received word  on Thursday, the following ' wire,  '���������Deeply regret, to. inform you, 443812,  Lani-e Corporal Blair Wilfred Mill*,  killed in action March 27th.���������Adjutant  ���������General,"  Blair- Mills was well known in Hedley. having worked at the mine for  months before going to the front. He  was ti very bright ahd cheerful young  fellow, and a great 'favorite' with his  fellow-workers. When hisl fall we  had the smoker in .the Opera House  and some of the boys decided to enlist  Blair Mills was one who volunteered  but who would not go until he first  went to Keremeos lo consult his parents. Needless to say their consent  was readily obtained and ' although  there were those at the time who said  he. would not go through with it. he  did and it is significant that he should  be the very first to give irp his life in  actual warfare. However distasteful  it might have been to a young man of  his gentle,habits, he realized his duty  and gave his life for it. This is heroism.  Although he left here with the 54th.  Battalion he afterwards transferred to  the Engineers, hoping the sooner to  get into action. The result was that  he took part in one of the most important and as time will show, decisive  actions of the greatest war in the history of the world.  The actual details of how he met his  death have not come to hand, hut it is  knnvvn it was in the engagement ot  St. Eloi on the 27th of March. .-'. .  ^'&-t.ft*r.&&&e-.&'r^'-,G&-t:!f'f&-&:&tS-:&e  I        WAR   NOTES J  '���������^���������aaa a*-* a-ar-ss -m *������ ���������*3*9 334 /nsf������  Canadian troops now in Plande.ts  now   number 00,000   and in   England  -1-1,000.  i  From February 21st to Apiil 1st the  estimated losses of the Germans at  Verilun ;are in the neighborhood of  2I>0,000, the greatest losses of any  single engagement of the war.  What Lincoln said of peace ere it  came, must and an echo today in every  heart: "I hope it will come soon and  come to stay: and so come as to be  worth the keeping in all future time."  The French have ready fov use their  new 10 inch guns, which are able to  fire ti more devastating explosive shell  than the German 17-inch gun. Two  giant shells for this gun, exhibited in  Paris, stand five and one-half feet high  each and, weighs more than a ton.  Dr. Karl Liebknet-ht, the great German Socialist, repeatedly tried to discuss to discuss the motive for the resignation of Von Tit-pi tz. in the Reichstag, hut was called to order and finally ordered to desist.

The policy of France is to rise as few  men as possible to hold the points assailed and to keep her army fiesh and  ready for an offensive just as soon as  the enemy begins to show signs of exhaustion.  Brihtol has discovered that a soldier  who has been paying out the states  two-and ninepences to Derby recruits  is a millionaire. Pi-fvate Brian Cavan-  nagh, aged twenty-four, was a voluntary helper at Colston Hall for'three  days. He owns 250,000 acres in Australia, was wounded in Europe, _and  hss been in hospital tit Bristol.  The sister of a farmer in Lincolnshire found recently an article which  she thought was a radiator fan from a  motor car. She took it home and a  few days biter while turning the propeller round, her brother aged 28, was  blown to pieces by the detonator from  a Zeppelin bomb. The sister was injured in the leg, but a youth in the  room was uninjured.  French scientists are claiming that  the intensely powerful searchlight  now used on the German zeppelins is  the invention of a Frenchman, Monsieur Dussaud, who described the new-  lighting system to the Academy of  Science four years iigo, but it appears  not to have been put into use by the  French forces merely because of red  tape delay. The invention is called  "cold light", and it is said to realize  an effective illuminating power equal  to 90% of the initial energy, whereas  in ordinary lighting systems 80 to 90%  of the energy is absorbed in heat.  In a letter to his mother Bobby Robertson tells of the probability that the  men of the 54th Matt, may be sent to  Egypt. This is in line with the turner  which was current some time ago.

Von Tirpitz was said to have  been dismissed because the kaiser disagreed with his policy of  torpedoing "merchant ships  without warning.

Jack Way has received from his  brother three sets of pictures of the  great Mai-di Gras carnival at New Orleans.

The first series was twenty floats  representing Rex, the King of the Carnival, the next representing Robin  Hood and the third Glimpses of the  Modern World of Art. The work is  very good and gives some idea of the  immense scale on which this world renowned carnival is carried out. The  pictures are on display at the Great  Northern Hotel.

Where  women and children are housed  every human consideration  demands the utmost vigilance  on the part of those responsible  for their safety. When fires  occur at night the occupants are  frequently fortunate to escape  with6ut injury or loss of life.  It is easier to prevent fires in  dwelling than to extinguish  them; there is often no such an  emergency.  Perhaps you have helped to  extinguish a tire in a neighbor's  dwelling, possibly a fire which  endangered your own house,  and perhaps you have inquired  into the cause and discovered  that carefulness in some detail  of good housekeeping would  have prevented the fire. Hot  ashes may have been deposited  in a wooden box or against a  Avooden partition or outside  "where tlie wind blew them into  some dry rubbish, hot coals may  For the Grand Forks Company  Communicate with  Lieut E.

Have you not felt aggrieved at  your neighbor for permitting  conditions to exist which endangered your property? Was it a  warning to you, and haA'e you  cleaned up and kept your own  place free from accumulations  of fire-breeding material, and  seen to it that 3'our stoA'e, your  furnace, your chimney, your  fireplace, and your pipes could  not be the cause of a fire?  Of 701 fires reported to the  Department of Insurance by the  municipalities of this Province  during 1915, 430 (GO per cent.)  were in dwellings, and these  fires were, with exception of a  small percentage, due to negligence. These fires entailed a  total loss of $400,335.  The richest man in the world is Czar  Nicholas, whose wealth figures out to  $550,000 a day. AVith that of- his family all of whom are immensely rich,  the total comes to $35,000,1X10,000.  Hedley Methodist Church  FR ANK STANTON, B. A.
