The interest in Swine Raising stimlat-  ed, no doubt by   the   high   values   of  pork products, made such  a   demand  for information on this   subject   that  the first edition printed last year   was.  quickly      exhausted.   This      edition  brings up to date Statistics   with   respect to pedigree registration   and   the  trade in hog  products.   It  is  shown  that the total  exports   for   the  fiscal  year end March 31 st, 1915,   amounted  to 166,048,519 lb. as   against   27,561,140  lb. the previous   year.   This    bulletin  covers the Avhole field of swine raising j  giving the  results   of   official   experiments as avcII as the pratices of succes-  f ul farmer swine raisers.    An interesting section   describes   the   system   to  feeding hogs in Denmark where combinations of food are prepared according to their food units   in   Avhich   one  pound of grain,-avheat,    barley,   peas,  corn,   etc.-constittites   one   food   unit  which is equal to S lb. mangels,   4   lb.  boiled potatoes, a lb, alfalfa, 6 lb. skim  milk or 12 lb. whey.    It is shown  that  that the diet is   varied   in   a,  definite  way for pigs of.different ages.  In a letter Lo Mrs.' Rotherham, H. C.  N. Etches, a former Kereiaeos boy.  with numerous, friend* all over the  valley, tells of tlie; pleasure derived  from receiving a -'letter and parcel  from home.  "We at home can form no idea'of the  life of these brave fellows who are  giving up everything for the Empire,  for the home, for King and comiLry.  Sometimes they try Lo tell us a little  something just by'.Avay of letting us  know something about their.mode of  living and their impressions, Out the  hand of the censor blots it out, so we  have to read betAveen the lines and  form utir own conclusions.  There is one thing'the censor cannot  hide and that is the fact that the fighting spirit of the boys is just as great  as it ever was, and Avith such an asset  what has Britain, -France, Italy or  Russia to fear from the Kaiser and his  hordes? Britons fight and die like the  -free men they have ever been, but tlie  Germans, poor mis-guided, tyranny-  ridden patriots, fight because they  must, because the years have brought  to them no other guerdon than the  mailed fist of a tyrannous emperor.

Its  history dates from the 10th century,  through the first castle was erected  there as early as the 9th century, and  Cassimir the Just is supposed to have  fortified it in the 11th century. It is  situated on the left bank of the Vistula, 387 miles by rail east of Berlin, and  695 miles sotluvest of St. Petersburg  (Petrograd.) With its 800,000 population, its beautilul river, its ample accommodations and its commerce, its  university and scientific societies, its  palaces and numerous important places  of amusment, Warsaw is one of the  most pleasant as Avell as one of the  most animated cities in Eastern Europe. Also from a military point of  view it has great importance, being  the chief stronghold for the defence of.  Poland. Connected as it is by six  trunk lines with Vienna, Kiev and  Southwestern Russia, Moscow, Petrograd, Danzig and Berlin, it is a commercial city surpassed by few in Eastern Europe.���������Ex.  The'anniversary .of the declaration  of Avar bj'Great Britain was observed  in the"/churches by special ' sermons  bearing on the great topic.  Rev: G! D. Griffiths drew a parallel  between the city of Jerusalem 1 ejecting Jesus Christ, the King of Pi-ace,  and the. German Empire rejecting the  great opportunity for peace and bring-  ingstrife into tlie world.  Jerusalem did not know '"the things  pertaining to lier peace"; and when  Jesus beheld the city he wept over il.  .It weisgrief to Him when Jerusalem  rejected peace: what must it mean to  lliui to see nation after nation, practically the whole Avorld engaged in this  Leirible Avar.  "View this present war from any  standpoint'avo like one, thing Ave are  certain of, over it all the eyes uf Jesus  are weeping tears of shame and sorrow. Shame because this is possible  1900 years in which men and nations  have, been nurtured in the fruits of  His-- Passion, and sorrow because  amongst His children whom he loves,  bodies are shattered with bullets and  hearts are torn with grief. We are  convinced that the cause of this Avar  is to be found in the policy of the  German government and I propose to  submit a short sketch of recent German history.  "The German Empire is a union of a  nlimber of small states,' the head of  which is Prussia. ' Previous to ISIS  these states were separate.  "Prussia has always been a state  ruled by force. Under; Frederick the  Great, Prussia became like an immense  arsenal, Avith a very highly trained  official army and an organization of  resources in the country which practically always kept it in a state of preparedness for Avar. As the French  minister, Mirabeau, said,'War is Prussia's national industry.'  "During  the first half of the 19th  century it Avas proposed to form a union   of the German states and in 1847  a confederate form of government Avas  drawn up, each of the 36 states to retain local self government Avith a federal  government superior to all.    It  provided tor the first time freedom of  speech, freedom of public meeting, of  press, and security from  arrest except  under legal warrant;  all of this \Aras  rejected by the princes of the empire.  Twelve years later  there  was  union  only in a different way.   Bismark, the  chief minister of Prussia, secured union   by. the only way Prussia worked,  force of arms.    He forced the  various  states  in  on  his  own terms and to a  form of government the very opposite  to  the  constitution of 1847.    Popular  government Avas to be unknown, and  poAver Avas vested in hereditary rulers  and not in parliament representing the  will of the people. The chief executive  authority  AATas a secret council corn-  posed of  nominated  ministers  of the  princes and the king, and these ministers  AA'ere responsible not  to   parliament but to the head of Prussia���������the  Kaiser.  "Bismark stood for ascendency of  Prussia by force of arms. He first  used it to gather in separate states.  Then he aimed at forcing Prussia to  take ascendency over Europe, and so  he crushed and aimed at permanently  crippling his neighbor France in 1870.  "Bismark, hoAvover, in later years  became an advocate of peace rather  than Avar. But his policy Avas essentially a dangerous one. He centralised  poAver in the  hands of the  Emperor,  made  Germany  one  of the  foremost  powers  in  Europe.    That  is   what he  had  aimed at.     On   the  accession   of  William   II,   Bismark   was disc-aided!  William II would have no other.strong  will at his side.    He Avould  rule alone,  and taking the power and   the  means  that Bismark  had built up he showed  his policy to go far beyond that of his  late  Oliance'loi,   and-aimed at the as---  cendenc-y of Prussia in world politics,  "Now William does   to   united   Germany what Fredeiirk the Great did to  Pi us-sia.    lie  makes  of his einpii e-an  immense arsenal, for he   know.-   nfl-no,  might  other  than  that of strength of  arms.    The peace strength of bis. army  is inci eased from time to time. Schools  are built and well provided for by the  government,   but every school had to  teach a syllabus provided by   the  government.    It was an   education   fitted  to produce a soldier.    Self sacrifice ,to ,  duty for  the  Fatherland, personified  by   the   Kniser,   and a   belief in  great  destiny of the German people, were its  first  lessons.    The commercial genius  of  the  people was utilised to build up  great commerce,   which  provided  the  government Avith  ample   money, and  hy  its  era of  prosperity won over to,  the government side the radical party  in the country.    Public opinion   was  fashioned   by   air   official press.     No  school   teacher,   college   professor  or  public  official  of any kind could hold  his  post. for. Jong did h*������ ������4..-:n*i? timo_  criticise the Imperial policy.    Colonisation was discouraged in order to keep  the men at  home.    Political  philosophers arose  preaching a new doctrine  of  war as a  "thing   inevitable'*���������the  glory of a strong  nation, etc.   Then  came the building of a fleet, aiming,at  supremacy on sea as the army assured  on the land.    Now  the  Kaiser was in  the  position  of a bully at school Avho  got what he liked from the other boys  by threatening to sttike- them.    This  was what is  called  the "mailed fist"  diplomacy.    It  was first used in the  Morocco crisis in 1005,  Avhen Germany  forced France on threat of instant war  to back down and discharge her minister, M. Delcassi.   Again in 1909 there  was a dispute betAveen Austria and the  Slavs, including Servia. Germany supported Austria and Russia intervened  to protect Servia.    The  dispute drugged on for some months and itwas  proposed to hold' a European  conference, Avhen Germany suddenly sent an  ultimatum to Russia to stop supporting Servia or she wo.uli at once declare  war.    Russia, disorganised by the Japanese Avar, had to get out and let them  have all their OAvn way.    She did  the  same thing in 1911 in the Aegean crisis  to France, but then England declared  her intention of supporting.France.   A  military conference was called at Potsdam which decided that Germany Avas  not yet prepared  to face England as  well and a friendly reply was sent  to  England.    She had to back down that  time, but Avhat happened in 1912?   A  new   army   law   added  to  the  peace  strength of the army; a new navy laAV  added three battleships and 15,150 yoe-  men, and provided that 4-5 of the fleet,  should be kept in commission ready to  strike at a moment's notice.  "In 1913 neAV and this time truly  terrific additions were made to the  army, raising the peace strength to  S70,000, and at the same time a special  levy on property was announced of  $250,000,000 to be all paid in by July 1,  1914, to be spent on fortifications,  equipment and other preparations for  Continued on Page Two  -m  W>MS-  .1 THE HEDIEY GAZETTE.

To listen at this time to peace  proposals from Germany or her  allies, would betray a weakness  the consequences of which  would be most disastrous to the  Allies and the principles which  they have engaged to defend.  "How long Avill the Avar last?"  Till Germany is conquered, if  it takes years, that is the sent-  ment of the powers.  The Kaiser shows poor sense  in approaching Russia, looking  to peace proposals, at a time  when the armies of Czar, supposed to have been caught within the .jaws of the German vise,  were fighting such a glorious  action as the retreat from Warsaw.

"If Jesus Avept for lost ideals of the  Jews, surely he must weep for those  of Germany. Previous to 1S48 they  were a people loved throughout Europe and renowned for their music, art  and simple piety. Today it is a nation  that breathes slaughter and hatred���������a  menace to the peace and security of  the world, a nation led away by a. false  ideal; and Avhen. we pray for victory  on the arms of our allies we pray not  for the destruction of the German people but for the desruction of militarism  and the Prussian spirit that had Avan-  tonly led them to this catastrophe.  "Oh pray for the peace of Jerusalem;  they shall prosper that love thee!"  That certain air   of   business  with which  Great Britain  and  the allies entered into the great  European war a year ago,   still  seems to   control   their   movements.    Recent   reports    from  the capitals of the great powers  engaged, are to the effect   that  the Avar will continue until Germany has been   crushed.    This  is   exactly     what    the    Allies  agreed to at the beginning  and  there has been no   thought   of  retrenchment as far as any   of  them has been  concerned.    According to Sir Edward   Carson  the   word   "peace"'   "does    not  enter into our vocabulary at the  present' time.    It   is   banished  from our conversation as something immoral   and   impossible  under existing   circumstances."  After all this is the only logical  attitude in view   of   what   has  transpired during the past year.  Germany's open   and    flagrant  violation of all understood,   ac-  cepted and recognized usages of  war, her adoption   of  methods  so  absolutely   opposed   to  the  tenets   of   civilization,    brutal  In his address on "The End of the  "World" on Sunday evening. Rev. R.G.  SteAVart established eleven principles  on the omens of the consummation of  the  Gentile, era:  1. The gospel preached to all nations  as a Avitness.  2. Great tribulation.  3. Spiritualism, Socialism, Christian  Science.  4. Armageddon.  5. Distress of nations.  6. Timothy's catalogue of 18 sins,  2nd Tim. 3, l-o.  7. Personal coming.  8. An erroneous;Plymouth Brethren  view,  9. DoAvnfall of Turkey.  10. Thief in the night.  11. Tribes of the earth shall mourn.  Regarding the 3rd principle, he said  Spiritualism calls irs to the secret place,  and against this Christ says, "If they  shall say he is in the secret chambers,  believe it not.  Socialism, which is the last defiance  of God as expressing the latest effort  of the natural man to go out like Cain  from the presence of God arrd build a  city, a society and a civilization, in defiance of Divine order, Divine laAv, Divine revelation and Divine warning, is  a witness that the Avorld, like a ship  now on the breakers, requires only one  more Avave to dash it to pieces, it is  the sign that the Avorld needs the hand  and touch of its true and coming king.  It is a warning that the coming of the  Lord draAveth nigh.  Christian Science, that tells us that  God is only a principle, and that there  is no such thing as sin in the world, is  "mental assassination," a system of  absolute immorality. What would you  say, if eA'ery minister in the land were  teaching that lying, cheating, swearing, drunkenness, robbery and murder  were not crimes, that there Avas no sin  in any of these things? It is a huge  importer.  Plis closing peroration was, live as if  Christ had died yesterday, were risen  today, and is coming tomorrow.

A Avaterspout east of Oroville was  responsible for three hours delay to  the Flyer on one of its trips last Aveek.  Mr. Crawford, auditor for the Daly  Reduction Co., who has completed his  labors in Hedley for the season, left  for New York on Monday  morning.  A couple of men are at Avork on  Scott Avenue clearing off the rocks  and levelling up, and on the portion  already done a Avonderful transformation has been effected.  Work is progreesing rapidly on the  building in course of eretion. Fraser's  hall is coming on in good shape and M.  Shatford's residence is assuming good  proportions.  Campbell & Shier moved into their  new building last Aveek. Delay in getting lumber prevented them getting  the front in, and they have had the  pleasure during the hot spell of "sort  of camping out, as it Avere."  J. N*.

The Ncav Zealand House opened this  week for despatch of business. The  speech from the throne Avas short and  the speaker just said: "what'll ye hev."  Good progress is being miide in rebuilding Frasers block. The loss in  material was not nearly as great as  appeared at first. Extra" precautions  are being made to have it particularly  strong, and it is now almost as far on ���������  as when the-accident took place.  A diamond drill has been installed  at the Nickel Plate. Page Bayle who  has done a great deal of exploratory  Avork Avith the diamond drill in the  Boundt-y has a contract for 2,000 feet  of drilling on the Nickel Plate or other  properties of the Yale Mining Company and last week the drill was set in  place.  The Hedley Lumber Company have  started in earest on their season's cut.  The drive is safely boomed on the river  a chort distance above the mill. The  logs will be kept watered until sawn  and thus the cost of extra handling in  draAving out and decking will be saved,  and the quanity of the lumber improved thereby.

Their study presents some interesting conditions :  Queen Mary of Great Britain was  taught from her early childhood by  her mother, the Duchess of Teck, that  she was a descendant of King David  to whom God made the promise that  his throne should be established forever. In connection Avith this it will  be interesting to read the following as  taken from The Covenant People.  It is remarkable to notice how many  of those who are connected with those  countries which are carrying on this  European Avar, or are liable to be  drawn into it, can lay claim to the  same Davidic Descent, which Queen  Victoria could.  ��������� In the printed Descents, the line of  consanguinity is traced down from  David, King of Israel, to Tephi daughter of Zedehiah, who married Heremon  King of Ulster, to Fergus McErch, first  King of Argylshire, to Kenneth first  of Scotland,   through  James VI.   of  Auto Leaves  on  arrival  of 9.30   J  and 4 o clock trains.
