The deputation has supplied each  postmaster- with a colored poster depicting "Tommy," kit-laden, with rifle  all ready, but he has stopped to light  his pipe and in true Cockney style he  says, "Arf a mo', Kaiser."  History repeats itself, as we recall  that on that other- great occasion when  England was threatened by invasion  by the mighty Dons and their tremendous "Armada," Sir Walter Raleigh  and the English nobles were engaged  in a game of bowling on the downs in  the south of England. Suddenly the  news was brought that the Armada  was in sight. Preparations had been  made to signal the news all over Eng  lanel, which was .done, bub on the  words of Sir Walter, "we have time to  finish our game and whip the Spaniards afterwards," the game was con  tinned and history tolls how great was  the defeat of the hopes of Spain and  her inquisition.  In the attitude of the British soldier  toelay, .who calmly 'says, "arf a'mo',  Kaiser," we see the" same indomitable  .opitit. which, ^conscious that it& cans-*-  is righteous, sees victory ahead even  though over terrible difficulties and  against great odds.  What terrible scenes must these men  witness in the interval between dawn  and dark, when nature mercifully veils  the horrors from their sight?  What nerve-racking hours must they  endure, sin rounded by shrieking death-  dealing shells, at all times conscious of  their mission and never knowing when  the call will come, for them' to advance  and take their* share of the terrible  work ?  What dreams of home and loved  ones will intrude upon the terrible  scenes of carnage and strife ? If there  is anything under Heaven that would  help to make these brave men, these  heroes, forget, let us give it to them.  If there is anything that will add one.  iota to their physical comfort, they  are entitled to it, then let us give it.  Away with the Puritanical, hypocritical bosh that would deny these heroes  their- smoke, or their game of cards, or  whatever other comforts they ask.  Are they not giving their lives for us?  Are they nob living nearer-than we to  tho command of the Great Peacemaker, who said "greater love hath no  man than this, that a man will lay  elown his life for his friends"?  In bhe posb oflico you can see bhe  poster, in the drug store you will find  the subscription list. For 25 cents the  Overseas Club is able to supply 50 cigarettes, 4 ounces of smoking mixture,  a box of matches anel a postcard. The  postcard "is a most pleasing feature,  bringing as it does, the sender into  personal touch with the receiver."  The man at the front whose heart, you  will have gladdened, will show his appreciation by returning the postcard  with his thanks. What finer souvenir  coulei you ask ?  These parcels of tobacco can only be  sent to the men at the front and not  to soldiers in Canada or England.  This need not interfere in the least  with any other- contributions you are  making   to   Red   Cross,   Patriotic or  The smoking conceit held Wednesday evening evening in the Opera  House was an unpreeedenteel success  it was more, iii fact the only -possible  criticism one could make would be the  continuity of it���������it isn't fair to say it  was long, there was nothing long  about it���������except some of the performers were pretty long.   ''  It was a smoker, red^ hot, sizzling,  scorching, a real salamander of a  smoker, such as one would expect from  Hedley, the machine gun town.  lb would be onb of the question to  reproduce the program in the limited  space of an orelinary weekly paper.  Some of it was pre-arranged, some of  it spontaneous and some on the spur  of the moment.  There were songs, speeches, recitations, boxing, sparring, wiestling, and  occasionally Chairman H. Jones would  announce a tune on the band.  The band was there too, with the  music���������a repertoire from the Marseillaise to the Maple Leaf for- Ever.  A rousing speech hy Mr. McLean, a  report from Messrs. Jones and Dalton,  with regard to the pirti iotic funds, a  speech by Mr. W. Young, Water Controller, of Victoria and others.  Mr. Foung spoke in complimentary  terms of his impressions of Hedley and  of the meeting, and in a few words encouraged those present to reneweel efforts in  what he designated  a noble  1  cause. His remarks were greeted with  hearty applause.  There were smokes a_iel ref i-eshments  and everyone enjoyed a real, informal,  good time, even' the doctor admitted  that ho wasn't downhearted yet, although we live in one of the healthiest  val'eys in the whole of B. C.  The affair- closed by the singing of  the national anthem.  HEDLEY SCHOOL  TO BE ENLARGED  Happy the community so blest with  children that it must have a- school.  But happier- still when conelitions demand an addition to the size of that  school.  Hedley^has always stood high in the  matter- of her- school and the training  thab her children have received,��������� bub  never higher than she does today.  Through the careful, hard work of the  trustees the school has been de'velopeel  to a degree of efficiency that at the recent examinations placed her in the  front rank among the three in all the  province who passed 100 per cent, of  their pupils.  ' Through the work of the trustees,  the Government has been induced to  build an addition to the present building and make some other- improvements, which, when completed will  give us one of the finest little school  buildings in the Province.  Secretary S, I_. Smith is in receipt of  lhe plans and specificatione for the  new room and improvements, and for  lhe convenience and benefit of all con  eerned has left the same in the stole  of the Heelley Trading Co., where they  may be seen by anyone interested  enough to go anel look them over, also  for the benefit of the contractor- who  may want to give an estimate on the*  work.  The improvements iricluele a school  raorn, cloak room, lavatories, a basement with a complete hot water heating plant and electric light throughout,, and .when-finished' Hedley may  well be proud of her school house.

PRINCETON  BEAT  HEDLEY, 8 TO 5  1915.  15,000 acres.  410    "  290  225  375  5S  Quite a crowd turned out Sunday  afternoon to witness the ball game,  but had a long wait before the boys  from the coal towrr arrived.  It seems they left Princeton about  12 o'clock, in two autos, and all went  well until they were about five miles  out of Heelley, when the axle broke on  one of the cars. This necessitated a  return to Princeton and it was well  after 5 when the team finally arrived  and the game began.  It seomeel to be an off day for the  heavy hitters of the local team and  most of the heavy hitting was elone  by the tail end of the line up with the  exception of L. Robertson, who scored  a run in the fifth. This inning seemed  to be elisastrous to both sides, 0 of the  thirteen tallies being made that inning.  Princeton played their regular- lineup and had the advantage of our boys  in that respect as Knowles and Prior  were absent. But in the battery line  the coal town men were clearly outclassed, Bill and Roy Corrigan retiring  9 men via the stike-ont route, as compared to one Hedley man who went  bhatroad.  Umpire Wagner showed a very  impartial spirit, his judgments meeting with popular favor.  Vegetable. 10U.  Potato 13,350 acres.  Onions      390     "  Tomatoes...     455     "  Cabbage ....     215     "  Beans      580     "  Celery        70     "  In general, the condition of all veg-  e tables i*-. reported better than ab this  time last year. The unirrigated uplands of the Interior, owing to the  heavy anel continued rainfall, will give  much larger yields than last year,  while, in a few cases, the lowlands  have been flooded causing partial loss  of the crop. No insect pests or diseases  of importance on the vegetables are  present yet. If favorable conelitions  continue, the total production of vegetables should exceed last year by  about 15 per cent.  R. M. WINSLOW,  Provincial Horticulturist.  Victoria, B. C.  Satin day afternoon about 3 o'clock  Hedley was visited by a storm which  in the very short duration of a few  minutes wrought havoc with the telephone wire-*, and blew down trees, etc.  It appeared at first as if we were  about to have a thunder and rain  'storm as we had several pi evious afternoons anel the storm seemed to be  coming from the direction of Twenty-  mile Creek, when suddenly the wind  came down, it blew the fire bell tower  out into the street and caught the  telephone wires and brought elown  several of the poles, cross-arms, wires,  guys and eveiything. Nearly the  whole system was affected, the only  wires left intact being the long elis-  tance to Princeton.  Several trees were blown down and  the buggy shed of the Palace livery  was totall demolished anel the buggies  blown down into the hole.  The Daly Reduction Co. shut down  the power- and at once set to work to  release the electric light wires so that-  no one would geb hurt by touching  wires that were crossed with the electric current wires.  Princeton was called up and in a  short time the line men were   on   the  job of clearing   away   the   debris  and  ���������c*  and getting read to reinstate the service.  It is expected that a few more days  will see the work completed and the  overhauling that the system will geb  as a consequence will put it in much  better^ sliape.. than ,befor*-. -, ti\e.^��������� hia_-������  storm.  HEDLEY MINER MAKES  ACCIDENTAL   STRIKE  In the Manufactures Building at the  Vancov-u' Exhibition will be a display  of "Made in B. C.

The Northern Constrution Company,  which constructed a mill on the Upper  Fraser River for the purpose of sawing  lumber for use on the . C. N. R. has  shipped 3, 600,000 feet of spruce lumber-  to Edmonton. The province realized  bhe sum of $5,500 in royalty and stum-  page from this shipment.  ���������. ������   Accoreling to circular- letters which  have been sent out by Liquidator Benson of the western dinners, he has  given an option on the two plants at  Kelowna and Penticton to the Kelow-  na syndicate which proposes to tun  them this year, and the syndicate will  have until March 1, 1910 to buy the  plants at the price of $40,000.���������Penticton Herald.  A new find was ac-cidentlv made on  the Campbell claim on   Puella Bay at  Herb lake by Mr. Bowerman, of Hedley, B.C., while passing over the claim.  The  discoven-y consists  of a three or  four vein containing  large  quantities  of arsenical iron and galena.    In  fact  the vein is reporteei to be almost pure  metal arid pans  coarse gold freely.    Tt  has  been  traced for a distance of 500  feet   and   looks   very   promising,   although no work has yet been done on  the property.   There are a laige number of claims in  this  locality situated  in  good formations,  on   which no attempt has been rnade to do any  woik.  A small amount of work done on these  claims woulel very likely uncover some  rich eleposits anel materially assist  the  development of  the  camp.���������The   Pas  Herald.   _  The August issue of Roel iJiin in  Canada published at Woodstock, Out.,  by W. J. Taylor Limited, and now on  the news stands, makes good reading  for the sportsman. Its stories of hunting and "been there" desciption of  various outings in Canadian woods  or on Canadian waters are in line with  the vacation season and the magazine  is one well worth while tucking into  the club or dunnage bag when setting  out on the annual summer vacation.  The cause for the widespread depression in the coal mining inelustry in this  province is largely attributed to the  importation of fuel oil, which according to official statistics increased  from seven million gallons in 1911 to  one hundred an ten million last year.  The equivalents of these quantities on  a tonnage basis from'a coal production  view point are that in 1911 the fuel oil  importation displaced 35,714tons, while  last year the tonnage dis placed a-  mounted to 814,185 tons. It is readily  realixed that this tremendous displacement last year has had a serious effect  on the production of coal.���������Princeton  Star.  -.-���������. ii~:  ?��������������� *fj^B  ������' r-*-*-t-" ���������  -'���������������#���������1  ��������� fy&M  -- rr*_i  ��������� '0'Hl  MM  - mm  * ���������*���������**������'_  ���������  prC****!  .'? *-"-*���������  -l-iv,*!  .: **_-*-  ***-.aJ?J.  <"'"*'Sl  ..r-41  ''������������<\  -if  *-.wV*-l  ..' ������X I  ���������> _*������������������>_  "-���������-.'  .'Ail  I*-1  m  it  *__  m THE HEDIEY GAZETTE, AUGUST  5,   1915-  and  Similkameen Advertiser.

STANLEY, Editor  THE WAR  ' for machine   guns,   ami. when  ithus   equipped,, the   -Britishe-i'  | has been mote than ;i, match for  tho phlegmatic Teuton.  Thus, tlie second year of the  war opens under circumstances  much more advantageous to the  Canadian  soldier   in   the  field  <      .1    i u..  t. .     aud as he is already well feaied  by the German, with the added  equipment he will be invincible.  In the meantime the Allies  are rapidly overcoming the  handicap of men and munitions  placed upon them by the far-  seeing German, and the end,  however distant, must be the  same, tlie ultimate and complete  triumph of the Allies.  Tho     magnificent      response  from almosl every city or town  of any consequence in  Canada,  to the cry for machine guns,  is  one or the mo_t sublime  movements in the history of this terrible war.    Towns whoso people  were and are suffering from the  business depression of the   past  two years, gave cheerfully  and  willingly, anxious  to   do   their  part toward.--, tho cause of liberty and truth.    This conies more  especially as a rebuff to the ambitious Kaiser, who ignorantly,  but no   doubt   fondly,   thought  that Britain's colonies would desert her  the moment   that he,  the Great  German  Kaiser,  der  clareel his intention   of forcing  Great Britain to ad on the  defensive.    To this arrogant, self-  11. i , * ... i  appointed dictator, the attitude  ������������������*-*      i       i '   * i Hi' i ���������  of the colonies must have been  a tremendous shock. No doubt  his elaborate system of espionage had suggested that the colonies would half-heartedly raise  a few companies of men, possibly recruited from the idlers  and. ne'er-do-wells. These, he  no doubt supposed, would not  be of much assistance to the  -'insignificant army"' of Britain  and would soon fall before his  veteran legions.  But alas for Teutonic hate  and .German intrigue, the colonies arose as a man and began  the preparation of the greatest  recruiting movements in their  histories, and the peace-pursu-  ing agriculturists and . laborers  became trained soldiers, and the  industrial centers are becoming  munition depots.  Canada's share in this has  been a large one, although de-  barred from giving the money  ���������wanted for the battleship^, on  account of, political disagr.ee-  merit, but when the need arose,  Canadians, regardless of party,  have come forward readily and  ���������-.'!��������� ���������.-���������-���������; II.      ii!."
