Has the ;Big -Krive  ''-"Begun* fo Materialize I  Indications for the past few days  seem' to point to the possibility that  the long'contemplated big* movement  on the part of the Allies, lias actually  begun; although^perhaps. in a preliminary stage. ~ ..       ���������    v -,'  ���������The visit of.. Lord. Kitchener . to  Prance is in itself significant, the gr.eat  chief-rrevei"-moves- precipitately; ,$>ut  never wastes time in the accomplishing of an object, and he is now WQrk;-  ing in the sphere'best adapted tol-.his  ability. As a result it is more than  likely that the supplies, and the transports necessary for the big move -.are  now actually under process of convoy  destined for the spot agreed upon, by  Lord Kitchener and General Joffre.  No doubt everything now awaitsthe  propitious moment, the moment which  shall practically decide the fate of the  Hohenzollerns, to say nothing of the  Hapsburgs.  With Switzerland reaffirming her  neutrality, Italy doing titanic service  on the frontier, the last of the doubtful  Balkans, practically assured to the  support of the Allies, the Dardanelles  slowly, but surely opening to the Allied fleets, the Russians holding Austria in the south-west, while leading  Germany away from her base in the  north-west and inflicting a stinging  defeat on the German fleet the only  time the latter dared to show its nose  out of port, with the neutrality of  Denmark violated and Holland quietly  preparing" for the inevitable," a success^  fnl movement on the western front  would haye a mighty- effect on the  duration of the war.  Of one thing we are sure, we are  now approaching the crisis and if, with  the months of preparation, the Allies  are not now able to drive home a decisive defeat of the Teutons, the war  will develope into a struggle whose  final will come only with the exhaustion of the combatants, and their  resources.  The following from a leading Western Canada daily sums up the situation  in very convincing terms, as follows:  "The dispatches say the opinion,is  pretty general iu London and Paris  that a great advance by the Allies in  the West is about to begin. It is even  assorted that the activity of the French  north of Airas is a part of the beginning. Yesterday morning we had a  dispatch from London saying the opinion was held there that a vigorous offensive would be undertaken at once.  For several days the British force in  Flanders has been inactive. The visit  of Lord Kitchener to the front is significant. He can hardly have gone as  a, mere sightseer, and his presence was  not needed as an encouragement to  our troops. It is very possible that his  object was to have a conference on the  ground with General Joffre and the  various chiefs of command, and it is  worthy of note that activity north of  Arras began immediately after his return to England.  "It would be presumptuous for any  person with the limited information  available here to attempt to forecast  the line of the advance of the Allies,  when it is undertaken; but a few  things may be mentioned. Broadly  speaking there are four points along (  the Western line where operations  concentrate. One is in Belgium and  northwestern France, or from the sea  to La Bassee, where the principal part  of the British force appears to be concentrated.    Advances by   our  forces  Hedley -Again.!

In addition, two others have been examined  and when they arrange' about their  affairs will also go. ���������  It began with A. W. Jack, whose  picture appears on this page.   He de-  cided that the call of duty was strong-,  er than the call:of a job, or friends or  social position; or anything,  and he  forthwith resigned liU position in the  bank. Joe Rotherham had been thinking along the same lines,   then  Jack  Howe,  who lacks some fingers on the  ,.i'igh(^..Jb.ancL^.*iTiclr,r'f'--r.������; that,   reason,  thought he could not pass the medical  test,  also decided  to give up his business.   Frank Dollernore was  already  arranging for the  transfer of the  licence of the Hotel   Similkameen   to  Mr. Bryant so that he could get away,  and J. Frame decided he too would  harken to the call of duty.  That made  five, when Yorkey (M. J. Meher) heard  of  it he decided to make the  sixth.  Saturday night there were six and the  townspeople began to think of giving  them  a  farewell   of  some   kind.    A  smoker was arranged for Monday evening, in which there would  be  wrestling and  boxing,  songs and  refreshments.  But the ladies wanted to make  some presentation  to the men and it  was decided to invite them to come in  for a short time,   during  which  the  part of the. program which appealed  more particularly  to  the mere  man,  would be omitted.  G. P. Jones was appointed chairman  and asked the recruits to take seats on  the platform. Then the program began and everything went along very  enthusiastically for a while. But when  W. A. McLean was called on for a  speech things began to happen. In a  clear, concise, plain-spoken manner he  began to tell of the occasion and the  men who were going and what they  were giving up, the war and why it  was so necessary to fight, and what  we were lighting for. Then he told  theni that if there was another man  who wanted to join the bunch he  would arrange to take him over to  Penticton in the car, so it would not  cost him a cent.  At the close of his speech the .band  played "The Maple Leaf For Ever."  This was too much for Bert Schubert  and he went up on the platform and  in a few words stated his position. He  had tried to get into an aviation squad,  but would have to have training in an  aviation school and that would cost  him several hundred dollars, which he  could not afford, so he was willing to  waive that idea and go with the others.  He  was promptly given a seat on the  platform. Evidently his attitude was  shared by some of the boys because  they too began to come, one or two at  a time until ten more decided after  Schubert,.making a total of seventeen.  In the meantime the ladies had come  in and had made a presentation to  each of the original six, but they said  they would have the same kind of  things for each .man who wished to  enlist. The program was continued  and ihe ladies joined in dancing between the numbers, giving the men  permission til'carry out "their original  smoker piogiam. 'There were .songs  and speeches, bouts and refreshments,  and at about 1:81) the program wiih  brought to a cln.se and those who wished to do so stayed to dance.  . It was. one of the biggest affairs  Hedley has ever seen, and will be remembered for years to come.  - There was nothing in the. whole  course of the evening to'mar what was  a very pleasant, enthusiastic and patriotic occasion.  During the course of the evening it  was agreed that if any man wanted to  go, those whom he was1 leaving behind  would be taken care of to the extent  of the salary which he was bringing  in, and arrangements are being made  for a committee to organize a fund for  that purpose.  Four auto owners volunteered 'to  take the men over to Penticton free of  cost, and arrangements were made for  a nip to begin at 1 p. m. Tuesday.  At the appointed time people began  to gather at the bank corner. The  school children were allowed an intermission that they might be present.  The stei_un -whistle at the mill'gave its  shrill wainiiig and the fire bell was  rung... Auto horns sounded and the  band assembled. Tommy Rotherham  was on hand and tookt-ome pictures of  the recruits and the scene. Banners  had been provided for each of the cars  reading '���������Recruits from Hedley, the  machine gun town," and shortly before  2 o'clock the procession moved away  amid a succession of cheering.

(Continued from last week.) -  ,  I had to call a halt in this to go and  cook supper which was   really   dinner  and supper combined.    We have been  been getting very liberal rations   this  last day or so, but..you can bet none of  it is wasted and   we   are   continually  buying French bread) butter and canned stuff, although our field allowance  of a franc, 20e. a day does not allow'of  very much fn this line,    especially*   as  everything is   pretty   dear,  even   for'  France, up here close to the firing line.  Well, we had for dinner two nice rashers of lean loin bacon, left from breakfast, quite a lot of   ratlier   good   fried  beefsteak, some boiled   new   potatoes  with butter,  pepper   and   salt,  bread  and jam and to finish olf with, besides,  of   course tea with canned   milk   and  sugar, a large tin of pineapple which I  had bought and packed   up   here   and  some good cake to go   with   it   which  another fellow had received in1 a   parcel.    Some meal, eh?   But we   are   in  luxury just at present but next  week  may tell an entirely different   tale   as  we have   found   on   other   occasions.  Wood and water are   fairly   plentiful  here and we can cook,   but  so 111 times  we are days without a fire   and   nothing hot and other times have practically no bread and   nothing   but   biscuit  and dried beef or army ration   of   tinned meat, poor dope. ,  Since   supper   time   I     received    a  bundle of papers from mother   including Caigary'Herald)'  Canadian' Cour--%  iers and   Daily   News.    We   were   all  busy reading them until   it  got   dark  and now I am in my dugout   with   a  good screem over the door   way     and  writing   by   candle   light.    While     I  write there seems to be a big artillery  battle goine* on over   to   our   left   towards   those    slaughtering    grounds  Ypres and Hill CO or Neuve   Chapelle.  Everything keeps very  quiet   on   our  direct front but just a couple  of   hundred yards on our left a young    battle  breaks out every little while and  rapid fire  interspersed with the breaking  of trench mortars goes on, sometimes  all night long.   The Germans are just  now throwing over some shrapnel  Loo  which is rather disconcerting.    I  sure  do  hope,, our Hun   friends will   soon  make their last desperate' effort     and  have is over with.  The nervous firing of our friends  on the left seems to have died  down just now, and our sentries  will feel more comfortable as there  will not be so many bullets zinging and  viciously cracking about their heads.  My turn for sentry go comes at 1 a. m.  so I am going Lo snooze pretty soon if  I am permitted.  I had my first experience of listening post last time we were in the Lren  ches. Usally it is safe enough job, but  at this particular place, which has not  changed for months, it seems the Germans had our going out place spotted  and just at the. moment we were going out they peppered us pretty hot.  I was hugging the earth pretty close  and fortunately had a hole in which to  get down in. One nice little pellet  just skimmed over my back and tore  into the ground about a yard behind  me if it had not been for my little hole  it would have got me alright. I was  pretty sore at the Germans after that.  Fortunatel}* we grenadiers really do  not have to do this listening stunt and  are supposed to keep together in one  part ot the trench.

Jones,  , and the first line of the chorus  contained the above words.  Hedley people have heard it  before and have applauded the  fair singer, but never has applause seemed more hearty or  more genuine than it was last  Monday evening, when, as Mr.  McLean put it, the world's greatest principles were being tried  in the crucible. For how many  of the men at that meeting was  that very trial under process.  We are glad to note that out of  that trial has come some of the  finest metal that this terrible  ���������war has recruited.  "Keep the  home fires burning."   It is a challenge to  the  people of Canada and Hedley.  When those men are  away at  the front, in the trenches, fighting for those   at home,  hourly  giving up their lives  for  those  they love,  the  one thing  they  think about is   those  at home.  How are they faring?   Are they  suffering    because   the  son  or  brother or father has gone, cutting off the means of support ?  Then there is the lonliness,  the  heart-yearning   just   to   know  how they are getting along,  at  home.    Privation  is forgotten,  danger is as nothing, hate, even,  the child of war, is secondary to  the great longing to know how  those at home are getting along.  "Keep the  home  fires burning, by writing,  often,  sending  the home news to the boys away  there "Somewhere in France.''  Let them know not only of father and   mother,  and  brother  and sister, but tell them also of  the chum, of the companion,  of  the ball team, of the town news  and make it as cheerful as possible.  "Keep the home fires burning," by seeing   that  the  loved  l ones of the boy at the front, are  i ' ���������       ' .' '-'.,' -'-���������    ..  ! not Jeft'too-mucUrto themselves  !

Tlie greatest force in democratic  America today is the neighborly spirit, the spirit which shares  one's troubles and bears another's burdens.  "Keep the home fires burning," by seeing that the dependants of those at the front are  financially looked after. The  government can only pay a limited amount to these dependents  but the community can, and we  in Hedley will see that no one  who volunteers to answer the  call of King and Country, will  need to worry about those whom  he is leaving behind.  "Keep the home fires' burning." The greatest, fire that  burns in any home is Love. It  is tlie fire of love that is sending that boy away. He goes to  fight for the home, which would  not be home without love. Perhaps he is fighting for the home  in which he was born, perhaps  for the home he is going to  make, some day.- with the  woman of his choice. In either  case it is to him the most real,  the most sacred place in the  world and that is why he is  willing to go and fight for it,  the place wrhere mother reigns,  queen of his life.  Never in the history of the  world, has the home and all its  sacred associations, been in such  jeopardy. Should tlie .barbarian  Teuton conquer, love and truth  and virtue, the pillars of our  home life, as well as of our  national existence, would soon  go down under the heel of militarism and German hate.  Mother, should Germany conquer, the future of your son and  your grandson would be too terrible to contemplate.     You can  show your love to him best by  showing him  that you believe  in his mission,  that you  stand  shoulder to shoulder with him  in the fight,   that   his fight is  your fight and that the mother's  tears are swallowed up  in  the  mother s pride.    He will be  so  much stronger when he knows  this, that instead of the burden  of regret he will have the benefit of your courage added to his  own and he will return, the conqueror.     Would you have your  boy grow  up  with  a coward's  heart?      When   he   faces   life,  would you hamper him with a  craven's soul?  A business career, the industries, the professions or even the  ministry are not more noble  than the call to arms, when that  call is to the defense of goodness, truth and virtue.

Another ifl  Arras.  would  probably be intended'to force  the Germans out of Douai and compel  their retirement   in  the direction  of  Lille.    If these movements were sue-  eessful the retirement of the enemy  from  Soissons and Rbeims would he  inevitable.   The next is in  the region  of the Meuse, and success here would  force the retirement of the German  army  that has been  endeavoring to  break the French line in the Aigonhe  and capture Verdun.   The dispatches  spoke of Lord Kitchener paying special  attention   to   the   campaign   in    the  Meuse.   No very great amount of sue  cess here woiild be necessary to force  the enemy iuto Luxemburg.    There  remains  the fourth  tield,  which may  be  described generally as the Vosges  Alsace region.    An advance  here,  if  successful, would drive the enemy out  of Lorraine and compel his retirement  across  the Rhine.    Nothing would so  fire  the French imagination as this.  It is not impossible that the advances  may be attempted simultaneously at  these four points, the principal efforts  being made in the first and last named  areas, the attacks in the other places  being   made   chiefly   to   prevent   the  enemy from sending reinforcements to  the wings.  "The Austro-German forces claim to  be continuing their advance in Russia,  but Petrograd reports successes at  some points and denies the importance  of the enemy's achievements. The  great distance which the invading  army now is from the German and  Austrian frontiers, and the fact that  they dare not weaken their lines in  order to strengthen themselves elsewhere combine to form a situation  which is very far from having reached  a decisive stage. It is an open question  if the Teutonic armies have not lost  more heavily in their advance than the  Russians have in their retirement.'*   -������_������   T'  '"AtLittife; Saving lis a Handy Thing"  jN|5������ a man jti^J'ost^^eha^i^e to^become independent by not taving the. rea^y'money  to  take advantage; o'f a really big opportunity.; ���������  "Fortune knocks once at every man's door."

He is a creature  who stole Jack Howe's cuff links during the smoker Monday evening.  Jack kindly let the fellows use his bedroom for a dressing room and when  and when called away left his, cuff  links, a fare well, gift from his friend,  on the table. When he returned they  were gone. If they are sent to the  Gazette office this week no questions  will be asked. After that time the  constable will he called into the matter.

This latter department is li^ld  in the room back of .the 'church. ��������� -It  ;is a strange coincidence that just ten  years ago when the.Hedley school was  first organized, ���������' it assembled- in the. it-  tle room back of the church; that room  has since been made part of the church  and the present room added. With  an- efficient staff, such as we have at  the present time the trustees are looking for Hedley to appear again in the  honor roll at the end vof the present  year.  TEN  YEARS AGO  (From the Hedley Gazette of Aug.  24th', 1905.)  Mr. and Mis. Unsoeld, who have  been visiting Mr. and Mrs. Wright,  have left for their home in California.  G. P. .Tones leaves this morning for  "Victoria, where he will interview the  authorities in the matter of the proposed new road up to the mine.  Mr. and Mrs. Edward Baragwanath  and family left Monday for England.  Ed. will join his brothers in the nar*y  and Mrs. Baragwanath will visit  relatives. " ~  ?it wiyl  SS_4;#  Dr. Thompson, the dentist who has  been in Hedley for the last week, felt  the cull of duty and has gone to Vernon, where he will serve on the Government's corps of dentists. Many  Hedley people will miss the genial  doctor.  Mrs. J. W. Wirth and Lena, accompanied by Misses Ruth Bowerman and  Mattie Stott, came in from the Hope  country on Friday's train. Mr. Wirth  and George came on horseback in the  evening.  J. Simpson, Provincial Constable, of  Greenwood, was in town yesterday arranging for the transfer of the licence  of the Hotel Similkameen so that  Frank Dollernore can leave to join the  men training at Vernon.  Mr. J. D. Campbell, of Grand Forks,  has been in town for the past week  holidaying. Mr. Campbell thinks very  highly of our links and bathing pool,  and takes back to Grand Forks the  recollection of the big smoker and  rally which has made a record for  Hedley. We trust he will look us up  again next year when we will perhaps  ��������� have some other surprise in store  for him.  The Hedley  Union   Sunday  School  .^will meet next Sunday morning at 10:-  /;"30 a. m. for the purpose of  organizing  for the ensuing year.   There are sever-  W. J. Forbes went over to Green  Mountain on Saturday, going by way  of Apex Camp.  W. T.

Chief Engineer Kennedy's trip west  was cut short at Princeton by a telegram which he received calling him  hack to Ottawa where he must appear  before the Railway Commisson on the  29th. Mr. Hogeland went on over the  new route to Hope, but Mr. Shields  accompanied Mr. Kennedy back.  J. F. Royer and wife drove in on  Tuesday. Mr. Royer has fully decided  on running his stage through Fairview  which will be a very great convenience.  There should be a mail as well, especially since Fairview has been made a  land office.  Mr. W. A. McLean was awarded the  contract for putting in the irrigation  works for the Southern Okanagan  Land Co, This is a very extensive  contract which will keep him busy for  the balance of the year or more. His  experience in this sort of work enabled  him to figure closely on the cost of  work, and the Southern Okanagan  Land Co. are a business institution and  appreciate close figures provided they  go with good work.  Jas. Hislop, P. L. S., received notice  last week to report at Winnipeg for  construction work on the Grand Trunk  Pacific and on Thursday morning took  the flyer to go out by way of Midway,  where he had to turn over his field  notes to the Chief Engineer of the  Great Northern for whom he had been  doing work down in the Similkameen.  Mr. Hir.lop's departure from Hedley  at the present time is to be regretted,  for he was a good citizen, but railroad  engineering has always been his strong  point and hence his impatience to go  back to it.  Editor Gazette, ,'t  ���������Sir:   In last week's  issue of youtf  paper appears  an   unreasonable,   un-*  'truthful' statement by.the Re'v.R. G.i  Stewart; -denouncing   Christian   Science.     He says:   "Christian Science,  that tells-us that God is.orily^a principle and that there is no such' thing in  the world as sin, is 'mental 'assassination,'.a system of absolute immorality.  What would you say if every iriini_ter  in the land were teaching- that lying,  .cheating, swearing, drunkenness,-robbery and murder were not crimes, that  there'was no sin in any of these things?  ,It is a huge imposter." >"','-   ' -  ' Christian .Science teaches - that God  is Principle, Life Truth, Love, and employs these synonyms, which is quite  different to limiting the Infinite to 'a  principle.' If Christian Science taught  there is no sin what would be the rea-  son for its effective crusade against sin  and sickness ?   This statement of the  reverend gentleman is an evident absurdity.' Where, in the text book of  Christian Science, can be found one  word to justify the' statement   that  robbery, murder, etc., are not crimes?  Sin, crime, is decidedly real to all who  are guilty; it is solid conviction.   As  to Christian Science being a hugs imposter,' that statement is belied by the  fact that it has stood the test of Mine,  also wicked, malicious criticism, and is  spread  to all quarters of the" earth.  Many   thousands   have   been    healed  through the spiritual understanding of  the scriptures   which  state   that  'ye  shall know  the  truth and the  truth  shall  make you free,'  from   sin  and  disease.   Will the reverend gentleman  answer briefly and categorically, without equivocation  or evasion,  the following questions:  1. Did you ever read carefully  through the text book of Christian  Science ?  2. Why do orthodox ministers omit  the healing part of Jesus' command :  Go ye into all the world, preach the  gospel, heal the sick, etc.?  3. Jesus said : ' The works that I do  shall ye do also,' meaning all believers  in all ages and at all times. Why are  you not doing the works ?  J. M. WRIGHT.  WITH the present increased' cost of living it is''  really a-seirious question.

George Chew, a mining man from  Spokane, interested in the Silver  Hoard mine at Ainsworth,-was in Ros  sland recently watching the results  from a car of ore from the Hoard  which was sent to the Le Roi mill for  testing.

Mrs. Kerr, Mrs. Markel and  Mr. Arthur Mattice returned  from Vancouver Wednesday afternoon. Mr. Mattice visited at  Victoria also.  Those who went camping and  fishing at Ashnola last Friday  -were Mr. and Mrs. Bowen, Misses Vader, Brown and Bromley,  and Messrs. Smith, Petrie and  Oag.

Mrs. Carle and Mrs. Keeler  arrived home Monday after a  week's stay at Vancouver. While  there, they visited Victoria and  New Westminster. At the latter place they called on Mrs.  Ferris, a former Keremeos resident.  Many of the Scouts have  learned to swim during the  summer. During the last two  -weeks they have been giving  considerable attention to life-  saving. Next year we confidently expect them to capture several "Rescuer" badges.  Seventeen of the Hedley boys  passed through Keremeos on  Tuesday, going to Penticton for  examination, which, if they  ���������ptxsa, will enable them to enlist,  which all seemed desirous to do.  Canada has given many of her  best men and boys to help in  this awful struggle, but when  necessity arises she will give  yet more.  Those who have had the well-  being of the town at heart have  been looking forward to the day  when we should have a two-  roomed school. This became an  accomplished fact when school  opened   on   Monday   morning.  Both the principal, Mr. Prescott,  and the assistant teacher, "Miss  Ramsay, come to us with high-1  est commendation.

But when the boys stood  out on the main street, in front of the  recruiting station and gave them an  open-air concert and W. A. McLean  delivered an address, their enthusiasm  knew no bounds. The crowd which  assembled quite filled the street and  stopped all traffic. The spirit of the  men was splendid and there was no  thought or inclination for drink.  They went down and had a good swirii  and enjoyed themeselves till bed time  came and those, who were coming back  came, arriving in the early hours of  the morning.
