But in view of the heavy outlay for  the new power plant and the increased  inventory of supplies from abroad,  (cyanide, etc.) provided to protect us  from interruption by the war, the  directors deem it wise to reduce tlie  total dividend for 1914 to 25 per cent.

The event has cast a glow of  waimth and pleasmu-over our whole  town, as is natural when two Hedley  people-show such mutual good judgement and such enthusiasm' for . the  place in which we all live.

The bride and groom entered the, room in which the ceremony  was held from a coiner diagonally opposite that in which they exchanged  vows; this corner-had been converted  into a beautiful little bower by the  artistic draping of the British flag,  under which they were married. The  bride was given away by Mr. Jones,  and was attended by Miss Avonia  Jones it's, bridesmaid. The best man  was Mr. Knowle's brother, Mr. Tom  Knowles. Only the immediate relatives of the bride and groom witnessed  the sei vice; but all of Hedley is united  in wishing them a married life full of  happiness and contentment.  The bride was charmingly dressed  in a gown of white duchess satin trimmed with an overdress of white net,  appliqued with seed pearls. She wore  a veil of tulle and a wreath of orange  blossoms. She carried an orange  blossom bouquet, and woie. a locket,  tlie gift of the groom. Miss Jones  wore a gown of pale grey crepe de  chene with a girdle of pink. She also  wore a locket, the gift of the gi 00111.  Mr. and Mrs. Knowles will live in  the Forbes' house to which they went  immediately after leaving Mr. Jones'  home where wedding supper was served after the ceremony. Many beautiful gifts were received by tho fortunate couple, evidences of the friendly  feelings and prosperous wishes of their  many friends.  Work on the new power plant had;  "progressed to that stage that everything was ready on Sunday evening  for the trying out of the plant. On  Monday the water was tinned into;  ���������the flume but on-account of'Siiow and  ice, that had collected in the Hume,  the water did not reach the works till  Tuesday. The new plant stood the  tiial test O. Ii. and in a couple of days  will be cat-tying its sliate of the work.  There is not a happier man in town  than manager Jones." Dining the  construction of the plant Mr. Jones  has been one of the busiest of men and  it was pai tly through his effotts that  the work has be carried out so successfully.  The estimated cost of the plant "Was  placed at $200,000, but the cost is only  a small item compared with what it  will save tlie company.  During  the winter all development  *  of their propel ties was shift down on  account of the shortage of power.  With the new plant development may  now be carried on the year round.  It will also enable the company to  shut off the auxiliary steam plant.  This was run about four months of  the year and was a big expense to the  company.  The new plant will develop about  1S00 l.i.p. or twice as much as the old  plant.  SHORT SESSION AT OTTAWA  'Proclamation Calls 'Members to Meet oil  'February-4th  OBITUARY  A feeling of dcp-iegret was felt in  "Hedley when it "became "knoiVn oh  Wednesday of last week that Mrs.  Gillespie had passed away after a  lingering illness of four,years..'

The official proclamation summoning  the niembeis to the capital on that  date appeared in theC-mada Gazette  on Saturday.last.*  The'impression is that the session  will'lie a comparatively short one, and  that it will be over by Easter, which  falls this year during the first week of  April.  Practically no legislation of a contentious nature will be introduced.  Tho business will be largely confined  to war measures, the voting of t'he  war appropriations and the supplies  necessary to carry on the business- of  the country. There will be a small  grist of private legislation, including  1 ail way bills.  The war measures will of in cessity  include legislation designed to produce revenue to meet; t least a portion of the war < xpendifeures. Time  undoubtedly will hi sum? tariff  'changes as "well as a bill pro\ iding for  some measure of direct taxation. Just  what form this bill will take is not  known, but it is piohahlo that it will  be in the nature of a stamp tax such  as has been imposed in the United  States.  ACTIVITY IN  P. C.

Acting r.n the suggestion from one  of the members of. the Saskatchewan  Grain Growers' Association, the central organization is making a unique  patriotic appeal to the farmers of the  province. The appeal is that each  grain grower will set apart one-acre,  of land to sow with wheat next spring  the proceeds from which will be given  to the patriotic fund. The central organization has adopted this plan, as it  appeals to them as a fair one, in  which all farmers, whether they had a  poor crop this., year or not, may take  part.  As the association has S50 locals, it  is anticipated that the acreage under  cultivation for patriotic purposes will  be i50,000 acres, and the crop at an  average of twelve bushels per acre, as,  this year, would mean 000,000 bushels  of grain, or almost an equal amount  of money. Truly a princely offering  from the fanners of Saskatchewan.  in the neighborhood of S'mitheis and  New Hazelton, gold and silver mines  are being developed. In connection  with the mine-near NewHazelton, an  aerial railway seven miles long, aud  attaining, an elevation of four;thousand feet, is being constructed to convey the ore from the workings to the  Grand Trunk Pacific rail for transportation to a smelter.  New mineral discoveries..are being-  reported almost every day now that  prospectors are able to get into the  country cheaply, owing to the facilities provided by the railway. Central  British Columbia has been hardly  touched yet by prospectors, and the  field there is one of the most attractive in Canada for their important  activities. It is anticipated that many  rich strikes will lie made during tl e  next few years.

It-   may   not  be just u-s  hrilliant a literary effort as you would  de.-ire,  but it  serves the puipose, and  does it to the best of its ability.    Anyone reading your local paper, in, say, a  distant public library, looks at the advertisements   to   get  an   idea of   the  businesses in existence and their style.  If your advertisement does not appear  you are not in existence to the outside-  world.     So, use the advertising pages  of your  local newspaper  for bona-fide  advertising, but don't sink to the level  of the Cheap John either by economizing on   the space   used or allowing unseasonable,  ads to   appear  week   aftei  week,   or  with   a   blare   and   flare  of  trumpets    heralding    something    cut  scandalously low that the public doubt  both  your sanity   and the quality of  your goods. ��������� B.

It has  been responsible, I believe, in some  degree for the hideous cruelties and  barbarities perpetrated in Belgium  and France by the soldiers of Germany, cruelties and barbarities which  have deprived her of the moral sup  port of the civilized world.  On the other hand, the withdrawal  of alcohol by Russia, by means of her  decree prohibiting the sale of vodka, a  fertile source of demoralization and  disease, will be found to have strengthened her arm and h-Iped her to those  victories she is achieving and to that  sustained resistance necessary to conduct this atrocious war to a triumphant finish in Berlin.  -' We have innumerable' substitutes  that possess some of alcohol's attractive  (nullities without  its  crawbacks.  mnx-tmh^ Satinrmn.

And, as a rule, it wasn't  the right person���������it was a servant, or a  child. The woman of the house was seldom  seen; the man of the house, never.  Nowj if the piano maker had placed an  ad. in the newspaper, it would have reached  thousands, where the canvassers could  reach only hundreds.  And even though only 10 per cent, of the  readers are actual piano buyers, this does  not mean that the advertising read by the  other 90 per cent, is wasted. Advertising  talks, not only to the prospective buyer,  but also to his wife, his grown-up sons and  daughters, his mother���������even his mother-  in-law. Their coaxing will help to convince  the head of the house���������and pretty soon  there'll be a piano in that home.  This and dozens of similar cases which  might be cited to show that "waste cir-  culation" is an empty bugaboo, and should  deter no one.  Take the motor truck. It can be sold  only to large firms Yet a motor truck  manufacturer is successfully Advertising  in daily papers. He realizes that he must  reach, not alone the managers of the concerns that require trucks, but also their  directors, their foremen, their head machinists, etc. It is found in actual practice  that this Advertising radiates in a thousand  directions, and again converges most astonishingly to influence the house that has  made up its mind that horse-trucking is  too costly and inefficient.  Advice regarding your advertising problems is available  through any recognized Canadian advertising agency, or the  Secretary of the Canadian Press Association, Room 503  Lumsden Bldg., Toronto. Enquiry involves no obligation  on your part���������so write if interested.  1  1  1919111^^ .THE HEDLEY-GAZETJUE_ DEC31. 1914  'THE FAMILY GROCERY-;  The Celebrated  English K Boot  For Sale Here  JAS.: STEWART & CO.  i  LADIES* COATS,  ^^t������������^^V������^^-i������S������J9a<9J������0<4������������l������i������i������0<na<a������������ial*i5e^it  m ... x  3  %  X  X  X  X  X  X  I SUITS and DR.ESSES  * To Measure  Samples  of goods,  and Fashion'  Plates of Ladies' Suits, Dresses,  and Winter Coats may be seen at  X  X  I  I HEDLEY SHOE STORE |  S -��������� x  g Agents for Rex Tailoring Co. ������  JC Suits Cleaned . and  Pressed at j������  Reasonable-Charges <������  m  ^aa^VAWAnA"A^^WA"AAAit������AAaA"a^^������a^  ������  ^<<iq<������^^iw^^>tiS3S^%s<������JK������������^u^viJsMH������<vt������<������u  I XMAS & NEW i  YEAR  CARDS  X  X  K  X  .X  *  X  2?

Judging fruin some of the remarks  made on the hockey game between  Merritt and Princeton by the Merritt  Herald, the people, of Merritt think  they have a hockey team.
