A pleasing feature being  the presentation of a Past Mist res**  Jewel to Sister M. Jones and also a  Past Master's Jewel to Bro. A.

Tomorrow, Friday Eveolno  "When Bandleader French gives the  signal on1* Friday evening, Hedley  Brass Band will begin to play for  what will be the greatest social event  nf the year in Hedley, the annual Un.-  pital Ball.  This year it is going to he a masquerade, and every dancer must. mask,  until 11 o'clock. Or stay oif the lloor.  At eleven all will unmask and the  young man who has tried all the even-  ing to guess just who of all the men y  dancers, happens to be the one of his  choice, bur who was kept out of tbe  secret when the fair lady arranged net-  costume, will have an opportunity* to  gaze once again on her own natural  face. Of course there will be surprises  why not J* And mistakes, Hi: will have  essayed more thin once to fathom the  mystery, to pierce the disguises and  addressed himself,- in endearing tprms,  perhnps, to hei-, 01 the lady bethought  to be her, and found out that the burning words were actually addressed to  the lady's cousin, or her aunt, or per  haps, his intended mothor in-law.  There will be fun. Lots of it. The  number and variety of the costumes,  the characters they represent, or mis-  repiesent, will assure variety and en-  let tainmenf. Everywhere will be color, animation, jollity, rhthym, movement, music.  It is more t ban likely a well powdered wig and sedate mien will serve to  disguise the smilesancl blushes of some  of Hedley's young and pretty girls,  while the -;de.;uiiic and . fascinating  young lady turns out to be a staid and  and respected dame        whose  heart is.���������idamont to all the blandish  ments and attractions of the most  versa) ile flatterer,  Here is Pri-eilla "tripping the light  fantastic toe" with Mephistopheles.

As to masks and make-ups, there is  no reason for anyone to be out of the  fun as 'our ���������enterprising' druggist has  on sale masks, masks and more, masks,  in big variety, besides wigs and cosmetics in abundance.  A word about the object of this hall.  It is to benefit the Iledley hospital, an  institution which is to the forefront  in the life of Hedley. In another  column will be found a little resume  of the history of the institution since  its organization in 1005, about eleven  vears ago.  eGord of Over il Decade  If you wish to oiiiain a good view of  the town of Iledley, showing its pretty little' homes nestling against the  side: of the mountain, you should lake  a walk up to the hospital and let the  iiim-m.' show yon the view from the up-  staiiB windows, i'nu will b" well repaid and agreeably surpri-ed.  Incidentally, look over the institution iir.ell' and if vou do not come  away fcelirigenthii'-iastic over Hedley's  hospital, you are a pessimist, light.  It. was the npiiiig of 1905 that the  fiisl effort was made lo pi-nrim- a  hospital for Hedley, hut the only  building   then    available was   a small  ��������� me aud .icconiodalion . was limited to  three heels.  In August 19(XS the Hedley General  Hospital Society, wu* organized-tinder  the; Benevolent Societies Act, with the  fli.-t board of directors as follows, G."  P. Jones, John McKinnoii, H. Tingley,  Angus Stewait, L. G. Marliaffie, K.  S. Collin and F. H. French.  ��������� In 190S tlie present building was begun. The amount of $15tM) was paid  by the govt-wiment and .$1132 was suli  scribed by the people of Hedley and  Niekel Plate, part of.it at a hall which  for attendance and financial results  has the recoid in ihi- hUtorv of the  valley. The amount was not suffiri  cut to complete! the building at that  time, but in 1910 the government sunt  along another $1000 and the Hedley  G >ld Mining Company SJoOO. which  with the addition of public r.ub-.crip-  tTo'if*. enaoieci trie work to "pioceed and  on February 2Sid, 1911) the first patientwas admitted.

It is proposed   to iristal a   new   power-  plant on   Carpenter Creek   at Sandon,:  and to   construct.an   aerial   tramway  between   the   mill   and   the   railway..  This will   make the  mine independent,  of theshortage   of power   experienced!  during the dry season; and will reduce  the cost of hauling ore to   the railway  and delivering supplies at the mine to  an appreciable extent.

During  this time the vegetable production lias also been increased  until the total tonnage exceeds  '100,000 tons, 90,000 of which  are pe)tatoes.  While     tho     production     of  apples is   rapidly   approaching  our own needs,   the   vegetable  production      greatly     exceeds  what we can consume, but  still  we find great   epiantities   from  foreign points on enir markets.  While it is   true   that   we  can  and must find outside   markets  in   tlie near   future,   it  should  not be neeessaiy to send   vegetables from this Province   until  the. home  market   is   supplied.  The  consumer  can do much to  assist    tlie    British     Columbia  grower by calling for   anel   demanding home-grown   produce  when buying  fruit   or   vegetables.

Clarke,  has been most active and a  summary of work done iluriug  the year is calculated te> stimulate greater activity ameuig the  members of the Institute. I.n  addition to the interesting  meetings that have been held  each month, several patriotic  teas have been given. The  flower show took place in September, anel the annual sale of  .work was held in Xoveunber.  The cooking demonstrations,  conducted by Miss Livingstone,  were one of thei most enjoyable  and instructive features of the  year's campaign: while lectures  on home nursing, as given by  Miss Steed, created the greatest  interest.  Patriotic contributions totalled $250, distributed as follows :  $100 Belgian relief; $25 Cliveden hospital; $15 Patriotic fund;  '$100 Prisoners of War fund.  In   addition   to   this   several  shipments   of    hospital   shirts,  socks,   wristlets,   anel    mittens  have been sent out, anel a large  box   of   jam   for the   soldiers.
