Our total- cash expenditures for th������  year 1914 amounted to $3141.83 while  our total earnings including receipts  of every kind were $2810.80; leaving a  deficiency of earnings against expenses  of $325.00 Of this $2810.80 earnings, I  must point out that $228.50 consists  of unpaid accounts for- the year. The  greater part of which will probably  be collected* However as far as they  effect the finar.ces for the year 1914  they will bring .the deficiency up to  $553.53. ���������  Regarding the expenditures of 3141.-  83. I may say that $425 of this  amount was expended for the purchase of an Xray machine and about  $60 was spent for equipment of a permanent nature which will not; by any  means be. an annual expense.  If we deduct these items amounting to  $185 from the total expenditure the  dilference $2658.83 will give uas a fair-  average of our yearly expenditure  provided that the work can be handled  without increasing the permanent  staff.  It will, thus be seen that if we can  collect our outstanding accounts forthe year, or even a fair percentage of  ���������thcni, our earnings will have about  balanced' our current.7expenditu"ri-s-  without making any special appeal to  public charity. The "result of the past  year's operations may therefore be regarded as very satisf actor y.  Respectfull submitted  .R. S. Collin,  ��������� Treasurer.  We begin the present year with a  cash balance of $565.73 in the Bunk  ofJ3, N. A. :.:.'- ���������    .  Apperrded is the balance sheet for  1914.     ���������  AND SIMILKAME^^^ftVBRTISER.

On presenting  the check to the bank on Saturday  morning Andy was informed that  the check was no good as Stepson had  no funds there. Constable Sproule  was notified and started out to round  up his man but found on inquiry that  he left early that morning for- Keremeos. The constable of that town  was immediately notified to be on the  lookout for him and to arrest him as  soon as he arrived. On Monday con  stable Sproule, A. W. Jack, teller of  the bank, and "A.'Winkler journeyed  to' Keremeos to be witnesses on the  case which came up before magistrate  Coleman. Stepson pleaded guilty and  was sent up for trial wliicli is to be  held in Princeton. In the meantime  he is the guest of constable Sproule sit  the lock-up here.

It appears that the sum  of $214  was  entrusted  to Mr. Brown  for- conveyance to the Department of  Lands at  Victoria in   payment of fees  in connection   with the ��������� purchase,   registration,  advertising,  etc.,  of   land  situated  in the Nicola district, at the  junction   of the Surmiilow and Skagit  rivers.     A receipt for tho monies not  I being forthcoming from  Mr, Brown,  the Liind Office at Victoria  was com-  municated  with,  resulting  in  the in-  forn-ition-that no monies had been received from   the party in   question for  the purpose designated.     In response  to  a   telegram  received   Wednesday  evening,   Mr.   Crey returned  to Vancouver to appear at the court hearing,  which  wiis to take place on Thursday  of this week.���������West Yale Review.  Mr. A. W. McCullock. who. for  month's has been in charge of the  steam "plant at the Coalniont Collieries, has returned for a short visit to  his liome here. Mr. McCulloch is en- ���������  thusiastic about the coal producing  possibilities- of that particular section  of the Similkameen. He says that the  Coalniont properties are located about  ten miles from Princeton and include  fields of great promise.  Three quarters of a million dollars  has already been invested by the Coalniont Coal and Coke Co. in the development of its mines .-it that point.  For some time past 25 tons of first  class coiil has been the output per- day  and this comparatively small amount;  has found a ready sale in neighboring  construction camps, as well as in  Princeton, where it is benefitted by  comparison with other "fuel mined in  the district. At present the coal mined at Coalmont is transported by  aerial tramway to the siding- wheie  the cars tire placed for loading.  Mr. A. N. Cantril, manager of the  company, hopes shortly to increase  the output to 1,000 tons daily. With  the railway transportation that will  be provided by the K. V.R., Penticton  residents may look for a welcome reduction in the price of good coal, and  it is quile possible that eventually  they may obtain such coal next winter tit $6 or $7 per ton. It is said that  the Coalniont Colliery coal compares  favorably with the semi hard varieties  from Alberta.���������Penticton Herald.    ,  ACTIVITIES AT GRANITE CREEK  DEATH   OF   HELMER SWANSON  The  membership of. the Scandinavian Aid and Fellowship Society sustained a  loss this  week by  the death  in   Spokane on Tuesday,  of Helmer  Swansori, for  twelve -years a  highly  respected resident 6f7 this city.    The  tidings of his passing away were quite  unexpected,  as his friends were anti-  cipiiting.his return this week from the  Suites,   where-he had gone for special  treatment for tin internal disorder.   In  addition ' to . his   affiliation   with   the  above society he was a member of the  Phoenix   Aerie,   No,   15S, ' Fraternal  Order of Eagles, and it is the intention  of  both  lodges to attend  the funeral  service in St. John's Church tomorrow  Sunday.    The deceased leaves two sisters to mourn   his loss,  Miss A.

WHEN   WIIITINO ADVERTISERS "PLEASE  MENTION Till"' GAZETTE  -   "Granite oreek,.Sir, from all indications will  witness a very busy season  this coming summer" said Mr. Frank  Mansfield  to a Herald man   in answer  to ii question as  to  "what's doing at  Granite Creek."     Mr.  Mansfield who  owns ii very large number of horses is  wintering  them  here    in   the  Nicola  Valley, the cost being so much cheaper here  than in  the Tulameen.     Continuing Mr. Mansfield explained to us  that    he   owned   considerable   placer  mining property on Granite Creek upon which he and his partner will soon  start operations aoout May 1st.     Last  fall, stiid Frank, we did a large amount  of work in  preparing for the;coming  spring.    We. put in  200 feet of flume-  ing and about 100 feet of sluice ditching, besides the  preparatory  work of  getting everything in ship-shape order  Yes, we   haye received very encouraging returns from the thorough prospecting we have given the ground one  nuggett we got from panning "cultus'  ground went $24.   ��������� c i  Mr, Mansfield said there were, many  on the creek who Were milking goad  and among-whom he mentioned were  Hugh Holmes and Jiis Smart, who  havo beenwoiking steady all winter  getting everything in shape for a big  spnng clean-up as soon as the frost  goes   out of the ground.  Chas. Lambert, of Vancouver, has  spent so fiir as I can jutlge, said Mr.  Mansfield, about $30,000 on his property iind-the coming season should'  give him laige returns. A. Seattle  company have acquired a large area  of ground on the creek and I understand it is their intention to spend a  large amount in development the coming season.  There are others who 1 cannot '"ill  to-mind just at present making the  same .preparations as the above companies all along the creek, so you can  readily see that Granite Creek will  witness a busy season.  Mr. Mansfield also is a large holder  of copper-properly in the Aspen Grove  country.���������Mc:.Titt Herald.

What such a contract would  mean not only to the lumber industry  but all allied trades in (his province  can hardly be conccivi !���������. Every tug  boat would be busy, every machine  shop would find new activity, every  supply house and distributing  agency' would find increased orders,  iind labor would benefit most of all  for- the next nine mouths ot the year-.  Some of the old time prosperity  would then come hack to Canada's  Pacific province.  It is encoiuaging to learn that  there is a movement under way to  so organize the lumber manufacturing interests of the province that  this large order can be concentrated  for. It will mean meeting the coin-  petition of tho more highly organized industry in Oregon and Washington.  But   with   co-operation   all   round  there should  be no  reason   why  British  Columbia mills  should not secure  this order.     Canada is with the allies,  and undoubtedly it would be along the  line of sentiment for France to help a  British ally.    The opportunity is here  for'-'general  patriotic:  effort   to   meet  the   competive  conditions.     Are  the  lumber men  enterprising enough to  organize?     Are the  working men so  fully seized with the facts of the situation as to be prepared to co-operate in  tke rate of wages?   Is the government  ready to  reduce the 'royalties?   Are  all interests prepared to work together  for the  common good,  although  the  profits to cither capital or the returns  to labor will not be huge ?     These are  questions  which are  to be  settled  if  the lumbermen are  to assume the responsibilities   for   carrying   out   this  large order.    It lias been well said that  British Columbia mills should not have  lost the recent large European tie order, if there had  been a readiness   for  all  interests involved in  lumber  production to  meet the situation and cooperate its the lumber interests to the  south have done.  wealth of any" class of individuals irr a  community dvpends in the long run  upon the prosperity of the whole country, is ii very unsafe adviser. Here we  have a bald proposition to the fanners  to bring about a shortage in tiro production of Wealth so that the value of  what they produce, expressed in terms  of money, may be enhanced. The proposal is that they shall check the production of actual wealth in Older- that  a larger share of the money in the possession of the whole community may  In.- diverted into the pockets of some  of its members.

RE  KEREMEOS, the Centre of Lower Similkameen���������- Famed for Fruit Growing-  WAR PREDICTED  IN ALL DETAILS  Crossing of Rivers on   Bodies of Slain Is  Described, With the Final Battle  in  a  publication-culled   "Omens of  the Great'war," the following remarkable-  allegory,    written    by   Brother  Johannes,   three hundred  years ago,  appears.    In deciphering tlie ullei/ory,  it tnust be remembered th it:  France is represented by a Cock.  England by a Leopard.  Russia by a White Eagle.  Genminy by a Black Eagle.  Austria by the "other Eagle."  The Lamb stands for-justice, mercy  and truth.  '���������Towards the year 'Z'J'M the Antichrist will manifest himself. His army  will surpass in numbers all that can  be imagined.  '���������There will be Christians among the  legions, and there will be Mahometans  and savage soldiers among the defenders of the Lamb.  "For the. first time the Lamb will be  all red. There will not be a single  spot in the Christian world that will  not be red, and red-will be the Heavens, the Earth, the.Waters, and even  the Air, for blood will flow' in the .domains of the four elements sit once.  "The Black Eagle ..will throw himself on the Cock, who will lose many  feathers, but will strike back heroically with his spurs. He soon would be  crushed were it not for the help of the  Leopard and his claws.      "���������"     ~*  ���������'The Black Eagle will come from  the'country of Luther, will surprise  the Cock from another sideband will  invade the country of the Cock up to  the middle of it.  "The White Eagle, coming from the  North,   will surprise  the Black  Eagle  and the   'other eagle,'and will invade  the country of the-Antichristfroin one  . end to another.  "The  Black Eagle  will see himself  forced to liberate the Cock in order to  fight  the White Eagle,  and the Cock  "will: pursue the Black Eagle into the  country of the Antichrist'7' to help the  "White Eagle.  "The battles fought up to then will  be as' nothing compared to those  which will'take -place in'the country  of Luther, for the seven; Angles ;wi}l  together pour in th.? fire- of their censers on the  impious Earth," which sig-  (This may have reference to Essen,  where the Krupp works are, and many  authorities believe that the decisive  battle may take place in Westphalia).  "The three Animals defending'the  Lamb will extei miiiate the last army  of the Antichrist, hut they will be  forced to erect on the battlefield a  pyre as large as a. city, for the bodies  of the dead will change the aspect of  the countryside, as there will be  mounds of the slain.  "The Antichrist will lose his crown  and will die in solitude and madness.  His empire will be divided into twenty-  two states, but none of them will any  longer- possess fortresses, armies or  vessels.  (Curiously enough, lln* number coincides with the number of German  states.)  "The White Eagle, by the. order of  St. Michael, will drive the Crescent  from Euiopeancl will install himself  iit Constantinople. 'Then will begin  an era of peace and prosperity, for the  earth, and there will be no more wars,  each nation being governed according  to the rules of justice.  "There will no longer be Lutherans  or Lchismatirs. The Lamb will reign,  and the supreme happiness of humanity: will begin.-" Happy will be those  who, escaping the perils of that period, will be able to enjoy- the fruit of  the reign of ten Spirit and of the purging of Humanity, which can only come  after the defeat of the Antichrist."-Ex  KEREMEOS-PENT1CT0N  ROYALMAIL STAGE  Auto Leaves  on  arrival of 9.30 *  and 4 o'clock trains.

"The Antichrist will ask irln'ny times  for peace, but the seven Angles who  walk in front of the three Animals defending the Lamb havo declared that  victory will only be granted on the  condition that the Antichrist be crushed like straw on the barn door.  "The executors olr the justice of the  Lamb cannot stop fighting as long as  the Antichrist possesses soldiers to  fighb-against them.  That which makes the decrees of the  Lamb so implicable is that the Antichrist has pretended to be a follower  of Christ iind to act in His Name and  if he does not perish the fruit of the  Redeemer would be lost, and the doors  of Hades would prevail against tin-  "The fight which will take place  where the Antichrist forges his armies  will not be in any way a human right.

It is 'cultivated in Peru  and Bolivia. ,...���������"���������"���������:  At the time the crop is gathered the  seeds are sown in* beds, when they  germinate and grow, 'and in. two  mouths tho growing plants reach a  height of about a-, foot. The leaves,  grown in the proper sunlight and  shade, are yellowish, small and thick.  This is the kind of leaf that is preferred for chewing by persons using  the leaf as" a stimulant, fortifier and  preventive of sleep and fatigue in the  performance of . arduous work, inasmuch as they prevent rheumatism,  from which miners suffer when working in mines that contain much water.  Indians who masticate the leaves of  this plant can work twenty-four hours  .without eating or sleeping. ���������  Coca leaves are used by the natives  when engaged in long and fatiguing  .journeys and by soldiers when subject  to hardships and privations. They may  be used with all kinds of food and.are  said to cure dyspepsia, either taken as  ad-infusion in the shape of tea or by  masticating the leaves. The life of the  plant when perfect is eighty years.  ."***���������*'.'

Lighting the Nest.  There dwells in upper Hurmn n bird  with the high sounding name of Now-  couris baza, but which is reaiiy a sort  of blackbird. It is conspicuously clever, at least in ono curious particular,  for it actually lights up its nest artificially. To do this it works up a lot of  clay into balls and sticks these balls all  over with living fireflies in such a way  that, although the fireflies are held captive, they shine all the same. The New-  conris baza then decorates its ��������� nest  with half a dozen or so of these balls  by hanging them round. The balls  last for only a few days and are then  replaced by others, and so on all  through the nesting season.
