Fresh Fish  on  sale   every   Thursday.  R. J. EDMOND, Prop.  J  1 This week we have 11 letter from A.  T.' Horswill's brother, who is on active  service at'the front, and who writes in  a very happy vein, of conditions and  incidents along part of that' thin red  line against which is being hurled all  the, vindictiveness and the hate * which  generations of civilization have failed  to overcome in the heart ot the Teuton.'" '   "  We regret we have to continue the  letter next week, as our space this  week is somewhat limited for the matter already in sight.  Somewhere in France  July 20th, 1915  Dear Algernon and Pearl:  Some little time since I wrote you  and just now everything being propitious,,and responding to a generous  impulse, especially in consideration of  your last nice long letter, which I  think I have already answered, I will  again write a few lines.  The sun  is quite warm today and  shining full upon me as I sit upon the  "banquette*" of our   piece   of   trench,  where I am doing "sentry go" on the  day shift which covers about 18 hours  out of the 24, and is divided amongst  the eight of us in our squad. This sentry 'go  consists   chiefly   of watching  through the bottom reflector of a periscope the enemy's lines of trenches out  in front, to see that nothing untoward  is taking place.     The full day is made  up besides   the above,  of 2 hours of  "stand to" or   mOre  fully "stand" to  arms," and four hours of night shift.  "Stand to" comes at dusk and dawn,  these  just  now   being   between   the  hours of 0 and 10 p.m. and 2 and 3 a.m  when every man has to have all his  amunition,  rifle and skeleton equipment about his person, ready for any  attack or eventuality occuring.     Between the two "stand to" periods constituting the   balance  of   the   night,  every other man must do "sentry go"  and the balance just "stand by" their  equipment and arms, not being asleep,  which is allowed during the day in  quite sufficient quantity.  Of course this by no means constitutes all the routine of firing line life.  Every night there are listening posts,  reconnoitering patrols, wire and  sand  bag and other work parties sent out in  front, in the narrow strip of no man's  land between the opposing trenches,  and on these every man must take his  turn.   Then there are other fatigues,  sometimes only possible to be done at  night, such as bringing up water,  or  rations or ammunition or such like, or  carrying out wounded or burying parties.     These latter jobs, I'm glad to  say, come but seldom unless there has  been an.attack or bombardment, and  excepting, of course, the more or less  inconsequential   results   of the   inde-  fatiguable German sniper.     These latter,   however,   with their    telescopic  sights and good rifies are dead shots  if they can get a fairly decent sight of  you, even at several hundred yards.   I  was out on a working party some 12 or  13 days ago, engaged in digging a communication trench back from the firing  line   and   exposed   to    the    German  trenches 4 to 600 yards away and there  were 0 of our fellows sniped there during the day's work,  and  they really  never got wind of us there till late in  the morning.    One chap a yard or so  from me who was   particularly sore  over  the shots corning so close to our  ears,  and who had   repeatedly   been  told to keep his over tall length down,  Continued on Prtgo Four.  Hedley Will Hold  .  , Labor Day Sports  There was a splendid turnout ,to the  meeting Tuesday night, called for the  puijpose of arranging for the annual  Labor Day sports.        ' ���������  C. P. Diiltoh presided.? The committee, who-canvassed the town with,a  view to learning what, financial support would be forthcoming, made a  very satisfactory report,' in view of  which it was decided to organize a<  two-day celebration for Monday and  Tuesday, September 6th and 7th.  Sports were arranged for consisting  of horse races, baseball, .rock drilling,  field sports, aquatic sports. The Hedley Brass Baud will be in attendance.  There will be a grand Red Cross ball  on the evening of the first day, and  there will be a patriotic -band concert  on the afternoon of the first day.  Here ��������� is a brief line-up of the program :  FIBST  DAY  Forenoon���������Aquatic Sports ; Tug-of-  War, mine vs. town; Meld Sports;  Children's Races.  Afternoon ��������� Grand patriotic band  concert and oration ; Baseball; Field  Sports.  Evening���������Grand Red Cross Ball in  the opera house, the best yet.  '     SECOND DAY  Forenoon���������Rock Drilling; Baseball.  Afternoon���������Horse Races, and Field  Sports.  Efficient committees have been appointed to take charge of each of these  events, as follows:-.  Horse Races���������R. J. Edmond, E. D.  Boeing and W. A. McLean.  Baseball���������T. H. Rotherham and Roy  Corrigan.  Field Sports���������A. T. Horswill, G. Mc-  Eachern, H. G. Freeman, C. P. Dalton  and F. H. French.  Rock Drilling���������R. Hambly.W. Sampson, L. S. Morrison, M. J.

Stanley and  A. Winkler.  W. A. McLean was appointed tu act  as field marshal to have supervision  over each of the committees to see  that all events came off with the very  best results and on schedule time.  All the events with the exception of  the ball games and the aquatic sports  Bank Teller Jack  Going to the Front  ���������A. W. Jack was a visitor to Penticton Friday, going in the early hours  of the morning. To enquirers his answer as to his destination, was rather  vague, but it developed in the evening  when he returned, that he had gone to  consult the recruiting officer, had been  examined and passed, had signed on  and'as soon as his relieftarrives he will  be gone.  Mr. Jack positively refuses to wait  any longer, but is determined to answer the call of King and Country,  whether the bank consents or not.  This is the second effort he has made  to go to the front and was detained at  that time by the bank who refused to  release him. But the brand of patriotism possessing Mr. Jack, scorns banks  and jobs and social position and becomes a positive force with an actual  objective in view.  When a young man enlists under  these circumstances it means something to him, especially when he has a  good position in a good bank, a host  of friends and congenial companions,  a voice that opens all doors for him  and an eye that places him well to the  front rank among golf players who  traverse what is reputed to be one of  the finest natural links on the American continent. Others have gone  when assured that their loyalty to the  homeland would not mean the sacrifice  of their job, but Mr. Jack has voluntarily relinquished his job and pros  peo.ts to.go and iight for. the home of  his fathers, the empire that his parents  loved.  His example has been an incentive  to others and as a. result it is more  than likely that several will go from  Hedley to that great unknown "Somewhere in France."  The people of Hedley while regretting the departure of their popular  teller, will follow his future with interest and best wishes for his safe return.  B. C. Red Cross  Ambulance Fund  i     MINING NOTES     \  will be pulled off on the front street.         m ���������  Those who were fortunate enough  to be at the Similkameen Monday  evening enjoyed a musical treat the  memory of which will remain with  them for some time to come. Mr. R.  B. Berks, of Victoria, who represents  Turner, Beeton throughout the province, was at the hotel and on the solicitation of those present consented to  play for their benefit. For exquisite  technique, beautiful melody, rhythm,  and harmony one would have to travel  far to hear anything to equal the impromptu concert which this man in  the most natural, unaffected and  graceful manner rendered for the  benefit of those piesent, and it was  with erenuine regret that we heard  him as he stood and played the last  chords of the national air, God Save  !i The King.    aft ���������  Hedley with a population of less  than 500, has during the past two  weeks contributed .$3,000 to the machine gun fund, and given $700 for Red  Cross work. Who wouldn't be proud  to be a citizen of Hedley?���������Vernon  News.  At Grand Forks the Granby company has eight furnaces in blast.  About 250 men are employed there, also 600 at the mines at Phoenix. The  company has bonded the Gloucester  copper claims for about $100,000.  On September 10 the Standard Silver-lead company will distribute 2Jc.  per share, equal to $50,000, after a  year's lapse. The total to date is $1,  600,000. As regular shipments of lead  and zinc, ore are being made, monthly  payments will be kept up.  Supt. Charles F. Sberwin, of the  Bluebell, was in Kaslo the first of the  week and while here made the pleasing announcement that he expected to  be putting on a full force of men by  the latter part of this week.���������Kooten-  aian.  T. G. Derby, R. T. Leyde, H Megrew  and S. E. Hamilton were passengers on  last week's H. B. R. train from Herb  lake. Messrs. Hamilton and Megrew  are Hedley (B. C.) men, where Mr.  Hamilton has been employed in an  expert capacity at the famous Nickel-  plate mine., having obtained a three  months' leave of absence to do some  prospecting in the Herb lake district.  He is satisfied that a big producing  camp will eventually be established  there and, together with Mr. Megrew,  is returning on the next train with  more supplies.���������The Pas Herald.  In the big. centers already the re-,  turns from the campaign to raise $25,-  000 for ambulance supplies' for the  Fifth Army Medical Corps, are beginning to come in, and the committee in  charge are quite hopeful of, the result  of the campaign.  Tlie purpose of the fund is. to provide  motor ambulances, X-ray . machines  and special surgical equipment for the  Fifth Army Medical Corps which soon  will be going to the front.      1  The generosity of the Canadian people in giving for the comfort and safety of their men at the front has been  an example to the world, but here is  an object fully as commendable as any  that has gone before. We ask without  hesitation,' our men, the very best of  our men, to go to the front and fight  our battles for the honor of our Empire and the protection of our liberties,  and we supply them with comforts,  with tobacco, with machine guns, and  we feel we are not doing any more  than our duty and not half as much as '  we would like to do.  In making this appeal for money to  equip the medical corps with the very  best and most modern equipment for  the saving of life and limb, theie is  much more than mere sentiment advanced. It is one of the most practical  ways to show the Empire and the  world that Canadians are loyal, that  we could devise. But there is much  more in it than that. There is a prac-  -tical-idea that many a poor fel'.ow, battered and torn from his turn in the  trench, who is suffering untold agony,  can, with such equipment, be at once  taken to one of the base hospitals,  rushed there by motor ambulance and  at once put on the operating table and  where necessary subjected to examination by X-ray and the very best care  applied to his wounds at the time when  that care counts for the most.  Have you a father, a brother, a  friend aws.y there "Somewhere in  France," fighting for the country you  and he love? How much more satisfaction you would get out of your dollar if you knew it had been given for  the means that would ensure that  when he gets his wound, as any may  get, as many have had, that he would  be at once taken care of with the most  up-to-the-minute service of which modern medical science is capable? Would  not your dollar have a double or treble  value if you knew it had been used  for that purpose.  With such an equipment many a  limb will be saved, many a life prolonged, many a loved one restored, to  home and country.  The Patriotic Funds Committee will  be only too pleased to hear from you  with a donation, or you can put your  money into the Red Cross box at the  bank; in any case do not forget that  on Saturday, August 2Sth, a committee  of ladies will have tags for sale, the  proceeds of which will go towards the  fund. These tags will bo of a nature  of a souvenir, and it will be nice to  look back and remember that your  dollar, or your money, however much,  represented by that souvenir, went for  such a worthy cause.  The miners in the vicinity and the  citizens of Hedley have raised $3,000  for three machine guns and also $800  for the Red Cross fund. This is exceedingly creditable to Hedley. In  proportion to population, Hedley has  beaten Vancouver.���������Kelowna Record.  .-    .J--*i*.^i?gW!Slf'-*  I'"'1*-*'.iUT"-1 iC.-,^    .

To the everlasting  glory of the Russian soldier will  be retold tlie story of the retreat from Warsaw, one of the  greatest features of this war of  great movements.  What next? The murder-  lusting German will now have  to reconise that he has been  beaten by the foe he thought it  was easiest to crush. The one  he despised and hated. Without  doubt the next move will be a  thrust against the Western line  again, this time to do what he  failed to do the last time, Viz:  to drive home a surprise movement designed to push the  enemy back to the sea coast  and clear the way for the big-  guns to menace' England.  Unable to defeat the Allies at  the extreme north of   the western   line,   Germany   no   doubt  feels that the way to the  coast  lies through Holland.    If this is  her thought, one might as  well  bid adieu to the   neutrality   of  of the   little   kingdom.    What  did  Germany care for the neutrality of Belguini   when   that  illfated country   stood   in   the  path of her mad   rush   toward  Paris?   How much   does    Germany care for the scraps of paper binding her   to respect the  neutrality of the    Netherlands?  To meet   this   condition  will  require the most clever work on  the part of the allies.    They do  and must resx)ect the neutrality  of the Netherlands, at the same  time being prepared to   answer  her call for help when the cruel  hand   of   the   oppressor    lays  waste her lands.  While the Kaiser has at his  disposal a large army and abundance of animation it is futile to look for any of tho ' signs  pointing to the neiu- termination    of   th������-3    v/.'t:",    in.   'I''<->. ���������''��������� {���������   the  greatest struggle of, the whole  [war, the greatest demonstrat-  'ioii of war tlie world, has' ever  ' r     ' -*  seen, lies inunediately before  us. Its cruel, insistent, persistent demands are already upon  us. It cries for munitions, shells,  more shells, it calls for ambulances, ambulance corps and  Red Cross materials.. Above  all it calls for men, more men.  These men will come, they will  have,to come. If they donb the  cause of liberty, of world fraternity, of amity will be swallowed up and overridden by the  hordes of autocratic tyranny  and militarism. It means a  repetition of the dark ages, a  reversion of feudalism.  This cannot, must not be.  The Allies have agreed to fight  to the last man, to spend the  last dollar, to fire the last gun  injthe defense of what they  dee,m,to be the. principles of  truth and right.  Canadians are pledged to the  last man and the last dollar.  We have the dollars, and we  have the men. We give the  dollars but how* about the men?  Are there no. more men in Canada loyal to the Empire and  her love of right and justice?  Never more apt, the words:  "God give us men. a time like  this demands it".  At this time of   the   nation's  Stress, when all true   men   are  giving themselves or   the   best  that is in them for the   comom  good, when the most vital principles of civilization which have  stood the test of the   centuries,  are put to the tensest strain by  the aggression of the   unscrupulous   German,   and     all    the  world, practically, is crying out  against the imposition, can you  conceive of a man  so   base,   so  degraded as to   seek   to   make  capital   out   of   the   situation.  When his neighbors'   sons   are  going to fight for their country,  his country   too, what -do   you  think of a man who is so small,  so mean, so pretty, as to seek to  become rich out of the   distress  of his country, the dire needs of  his fellow  countrymen?   words  cannot depict our   aversion   to  such a   beast.    Language fails  to tell how   much   we   despise  him and the sordidness   of   his  soul, a soul too   shrunken   and  shriveled to be accessible to the  very smallest degree of common  decency.    When you   think of  such a monstrosity,   you   draw  your coat a little tighter  about  you as if the loathsome creature  might   contaminate   you   with  his very touch.  And yet we learn that Canada has some such creatures  within her borders.  whatever you accept and attempt to. do, wether it be .polish-,  ing a, counter or- managing, a.  business,,do it right���������that's the  way to succeed!    . ,  There are various kinds of  pleasure, but none exceeds that  which the normal man gets out  of doing his accepted work well.  .Approach your task with ,the  conviction that you can and  will master it.
