Despite* the; extremity of the  colel snap, quite a.mrge erowel assem-  hleel to enjoy this big social event.  There were qui tei a. few who wore  neither mask nor- costitine', there wore  some who masked birt wore no costume, hut the rcene was greatly enhanced hy the appearance- of those  whose loyalty to tire tr-nlitious of the  Hospital Ball, elecieled them to aelopt  both musk and costume in order to  make the affair tho success it eleserves  to lie.  Theses latter were not only the life  of.the hall in its .beginning hittstayeel  by it to the fini.-h ami wire hugely responsible foi- its I'omplete sucriiss.  II* a stranger had come m town ami  without warning been bronchi to the  Opera House at any time between S:15  mil lU:-li5p.ut. nn Friday the; sivnr  would have taken his hretaih away.  From one oriel of the big- hall lo the  other, was a mass of lite anel color,  while ihe greatest liiimor w������.- to be  derived from the variety of facial effects as produced   by the masks.  The good old Union Jack anil the  patriotic; colors found a prominent  place in the; cost'imes, and tiiecniin  tries of our Aides weie each representee!. As -b f urther. reminder that we  are at present engaged m .1 lernble  war-there"was a elancer pre-ini'in the  khaki irniform o. a stall'sargeant of  the O.ma, iian Contingent of the South  African war.  Imagine the task ofthe judge's to  select from the scores of elancer.-, this  medley of costume's, the evercnangiug  scene of gliding colors toe costumes  eleserving eif the highest commendation  Mrs. A. Olaee: and Messrs. VV. Lons  dale, VV. C. Lyall, and B. VV. Knowles  weitvthe judges and their selections  met with general approval.  The prizi s for best ladies costume  went to Mrs. Geo. French and Mis. G.  P. Jones whn representee! Ireland in a  costume, of while trimmed with green  milder and shamrocks. They Were  calleel "Irish Twins" ,and tin- scheme  was well carried out in evi-ty detail to  the confusion of the ltickle.-s one- who  thought he was capable of telling One  from the othei. Each of the twins  receiveel a ni< e hand mirror in which  .0 discover who was which.  The prize for the liest gentlernaii's  costume was a -mall alarm clock and  was captured liy John Hos-aek who in  a costume of gunny sacks lepresented  an Indian (Siwash) and carried the  putt oil so well that tho . local chief  who happened to Ire in .town, stalled  t ��������� give John the high sign. ,'Tis said  the latter had it all over the aborigine  when it came, to an exchaiure of dialects, however.  The prize for the best comic costume  an electric flash light, went to V. P.  Dalton, who as "Dutch Cleanser"  easily took the premier place. Until  Charley unmasked there were many  there who would have sworn that the  woman with the dirt chaser had come  down off the can of Dutch Cleanser  and was actually in . search of something to clean tip on.  In a gathering of the size of this hall  it would not be possible for the scribe"  to report every masker anel their costume Imt we have procured the following list and in   ns many cases   as poss  ible have   peison.illy   interviewed the  lention to overlook or slight yon hut  because you probably ilisrobed before  the Gazette representative hael an  opportunity to interview you."

There   is  no  public body which  gives mure liberally of its time   and its talents   for public and    patriotic   purpose's.    The  res-  ponse.is   always   hearty   and willing.

The relief came when for afew 1111111-  liei'S   tho     orchestra,      Mrs.   Sproule,  Messrs Hansen and Bertie Jones, took  up tne burden and supplied some very  excellent music.  As predicted by the Gazette, tire  supper feature at the Grand Union  Hotel was a big success. Two long  tables twice set groaned under the  weight of the good things provided  for the hungry dancers. The smallest feature was tho price and frequent  comment was heard on the excellent  repast, which in the opinion of many  had never been  excelled in Hedley.  After supper dancing was continued  and although some of the spectators  had retired there still was a gooel sized crowd and the best part of tho  evening's enjoyment began and continued until nearly sunrise.  strenuous year in the history of the  ho������uital. have had ti steer the. financial  ship.

MINING NOTES  It ceists the Granby Company So  cents a ton to mine its ore at Phoenix.  A good body of copper ore carrying  values as high as $480 per ton, has been  encountered.on the Celtic Chief, Summit camp, near Tulameen.  Copper is selling in New York for 21-  cents a pound and over, the highest'  point reacheel by the. metal in nearly  40 years. The consensus of opinion  aiBoujr leaeling eastern sidling agencies  i.- that the price will advance: umleri&I-  ;y in the next 30 days. The increased  demand from abroad foi-munition purposes, together with the fact that domestic consumers are competing now  with foreign bidders to replenish thoir  practically exhausted stocks, has  brought about a situation thut sir gues  well for a further rise.���������Star-.

Stevenson and  Campbell were in Cariboo in T^S-'OO.  Miss Porteous arrived Thursday for  ii visit with her brother Tom.  AV. J. Mannery of Similkameen  came in on Tuesday's train but could  not return until Wedrresday owing to  the "Flyer" being stuck in the snow  at Princeton.  The total dividcndseleclareel by British Columbia mines for 1915amount, to  $2,236,839 as against $1,700,304 for 1914  so that the past year shows an increase  of  dividend   distribution   of $536,535  over previous   year, an increased ratio  of over 30 per cent.    The dividends for  the new year should reach  about $3,-  000,000.    The  total   dividends paid by  the   mines   of the   province   to   date  amount to $25,833,403,  and the profits  applieelto development and equipment  amount to   a similar sum.   so that our  mines   have returned   about   ten   pee  cent of   their   production   in   profits,  thus  constituting the  most profitable  development   of natural  resources un.  deitaken in  thc   province4.���������Province.

Editor  Editorial Quotations  Last week the Merritt Herald  celebrated its twelfth'anniversary. The paper is old-enough  .to-.change its political bearings.  Speaking of the British failure to take Constantinople by  the'Gallipoli route; it is to be  remembered that some other  people have not yet, reached  Paris, Calais, or Riga, and they  started first.���������New York World.  After all they are pretty slow  in the Uniled States. A letter  mailed at Neogra, III., in 1860  reached its destination last  .month.. It was fifty-five years  on the -road, and must have  been in some post-office store  that did not advertise.���������Ledge.  February 2 is Chinese New  Years. The Chinks'New Year  commences any old time. It  changes with the sun, moon  and stars. On that day they  worship their god, which might  be a pig, a ham-sandwich, a bale  of hay, or even a copy of the  Princeton Star.  "Belgium has deserved well  of the world. She has placed  .us under an- obligation which,  as a nation, we shall not forget.  We assure her today in the  name of this United Kingdom  and of the whole Empire, that  she may count to the end on  our wholo hearted anel unfailing support."���������II. H. Asquith.  An editor in a sil vercamp sighs  thusly : Some philosoper remarked that it is just one darned  thing after another. It seems  to be true. Silver goes over  fifty-six cents an ounce and  nearly every mill in the country  had to close down because of  lack of water or cold weather.  If silver went to ninety cents an  ounce it is likely that some condition would arise that would  shut down every mine -and mill  in the district.  " Somebody has remarked  that this bill is likely to lead to  an industrial conscription of  wealth. I say if industrial conscription or conscription of  wealth is necessary to the winning ot: the war, why should we  shrink from it? This country  surely is willing to make any  sacrifice necessary tn bring the  struggle to a successful conclusion. What good is property to  me if I have to hang my head  in eternal shame because my  country has been beaten?"���������Sir  Edward Carson.  intenlion is to   sink   ibis   incline   to   a.  depth of siotJU   feet.     It   is  so  situated  tli.-it when sunk sut'ficienlly it   wi.l   be  uinlei all   the   known   ore   bodies   and  will   have  pay   ore   above   it   continuously   for   11(10   feet.    In    that    .samo  year's report was mentioned the recent  iicejuh'einciii  ny the  company  of   I hi-  adjoining   Windfall    group    of    five  claims.-  By the end of 1014-   the   Dickson incline bad been sunk   to  a  depth  oi 750 feel, with stations,   cut   sit   J 111),  200and 601J foot leveN, with ore pockets  and all necessary equipment   throughout.    Stupes   were   opened   on    three  levels in ore of good grillle, that on ihe  sixth level having been found of higher  grade, than   on   the   others.    In   1915  iniiiing was done only   in   th'-   Nickel  Plate   mitl'development   wa.*   in   the  lower levels.    Ore-produetiorr also w .b  altogethei from   thi.-   mine.    The   ue-  velopment woi k done had for its chief  object the opening of ������re  bodies,   tbe  ocC'irience   of   which   hail   previously  been indicated by diamond drilling, so  as to ascertain   what qii.-uil.it y  of ore  there is here in reset ve.    In   this  eon  neetion there   was   much   erosseulling  and drift ing iii ore, neside which more  diamond drilling was done.  The power plant, driven by water  fioni Twenty-Mile creek with auxiliary  steam when required, having tieen  tixcd to its limit to keep mine iind  mill going and production up to the  higher scale l hat had been reached in  1912, there having been iin increase  from-lO.S-ZS tons of ..re crushed in 1910  to 7U,455 tons in 1012, the directors of  the company gave instructions to proceed with the construction of a hydro-'  electric svstein, with plant to be placed  on Similkameen river two or three  miles below Iledley, so that the power  might be generated nt n lower cost  than miller existing conditions, anel  to an extent that would allow a sufficient margin for enlarged operations  at the mill in the future. The new  plant was designed to have a capacity  of JSUIJ horse power, nnd it was calculated that by its displacing the steam  auxiliary its cost would be s.-iveel irr  about four years.  OTHER PROPERTIES  The Kingston group of mineral  claims corrsists of the Warhorse,  Kingston, Metropolitan anel Kingston  fraction, all lying on the Twenty-mile  slope of the hill. The Wai horse ore-  body lies on a contact of massive blue  limestone with an nndesite sheet, and  riot fiir from the central core of nion-  znnite. The limestone dips 30 elegrees  to the west, anil contains irregular  masses of cherty rock. It is cut by  irregular elikes of imdestte, which alter  the limestone to an epidote: garrret-  calcite rock. This constitutes the  giingue of the ores, anel the ore: minerals are pyi-ihoiite, chaloopyiitc,  arsenopyi ite and galena. These are  scattered through the gangne in varying proportions, pyrrhotite forming  with chalcopyrite the largest percentage. The chief value is in copper, but  this is supplemented ''.V Mime gold anel  silver.  On the Kingston claim furtherel own  the hill the workings are in the sediments within a few feet of the edge of  the monzonite core. Injections from  the monzoiiite have penetrated tiie  bedding planes of the sediments, altering and mineralizing them iis in I license of the Nickel Plate mine. The  chief value is in gold, which is associated with arsenopyi ite.

On a piece nf ice 156 feet by 60 fret  the Keremeos Buy Scout hockey team  defeated the Hedley Boy Scut team  l>y a score of 7 to 4 in Keiemeos last  Saturday. A good number of rooters  turned out to witness the game.  The ice was in pretty'good condition,  although it had been thawing nil day.  The game consisted of two twenty  minute periods. The first was played  in darkness, and the second with a  lone light doing sentry duty in the  middle of the link. As our boys aire  rrot bats they were badly handicapped.  And'then .-ig.-iin, another crimp was  put iir tho Iledley team. Henry Jones  broke his skate and Had., lo be trans  i'erred to goal.  ��������� The first period, after good work on  both sides, ended in favor of Keren-  mens, 4-0. ���������'���������  After an inter val of ten minutes the  puck chasers .stalled oil' with the  Iledley spirit--vim, vigor and push���������  and like a rapid firing gun, Ti. .Tones,  centre, shot the puck three, times into  the net, and ii little later Elmer' Burr  scored another goal. This ended the  scoring for Hedley, while Keremeos  boys, to show they had no ill-feeling,  made another tluee goals.  The  game   was  clean,  no one being  put on the fence.    Although   at  Li s  wwil't, not as swift as the Similkameen  river dining high water.  Following is the line up:  Hedley���������II. Jones, goal; G. Jones,  point: W. Lynns, cover; B.

In certain quai i eis, -1 lie impression  prevails that tho commission for- relief  in Belgium had assumed ihe heavy  burden of feeding the Belgian population friiiii funds lollecled exclusively  in the United States and that, as a  consequence,.the ^eriei-uus cooperation  ofthe other cuinnies was not required. Such is unfortunately not I he  case, as shown liy the repeated appeals  of the commission, aiming other  friendly cuiiuii ies, especially to the  British empire.  You, who have lieen spared the  horrors of invasion, will yon once,  more, as you so genemusly did last  winter, give a compassionate thought  to the ii'iartyr-pe.'ple, to the nation  which-Deliberately sacrificed itself in  the defence of the .noble principles at  stake in the gigantic struggle in which  we are all involved?  It is bread that we are asking for  the Belgians, the luearl that must help  therrr to live.through the anxious expectation ,of diliveiance.  It is estimated that a. bag of flour  costing'only $2.30 would make enough  to feed two Belgians for- a month. Is  it asking too much that you forego a  luxury so that a life may be preserved?  Your cheques or money orders may  be addressed either to the provincial  or local committee of our work or directly t<> the central executive committee of the relief work for the victims  of the war in Belgium, which will duly  acknowledge receipt.

Some of our American contemporaries are throwing' a fit  over the chance of Spain and  Sweden entering the war on the  side of the Teutons. More unlikely things have come to pass,  but Ave see no reason to tremble  even then. Let them come, the  more the merrier, but tlie entente powers will meet -them  "with a ring of steel and machine  guns. The sooner we know the  measure of our enemy the  sooner we can match his size.  In the meantime Canada calls  to every available man. to train  and arm for the fight. The  empire's need is the call to arms.  The Aberileen mine on Ten Mile  ci-eek, Nicola valley, -shipped . three  cars of ore last week. Prom now on  three car.s a week will be shipped. B.  C.

The Camp  Bird in Colorado has been described as  exhausted for three years successively.

In view of the demand for zinc, the  ���������Slocan .Star Mines, limited, have decided on making extensive improvements to utilize to the bent advantage,  arid while the market is good, the extensive reserves of zinc ore in the  mine. It is proposed to install a new  power plant on Caipeuter creek, am!  to construct an aerial tramway "between tiie mill and the railway. This  will make the mine independent of tbe  shortage of power experienced dorimr  the dry season, and will reduce the  cost of hauling ore to the railway and  delivering supplies tit the mine to an  appreciable extent.  90 Chart Itoad, F.>lksiuin-,  -,.      ���������    .

I'ul Ohi'i-tinas parcel. 'Mow good aud  kind,of yon all; and I am sure I-'appreciate the honor- you have done ine  and will never for-get your great kindness.        ���������   ,  You see I am still in England. I  would have been in Prance months  ago had I .remained with, the Second  division, but 1 was transferred'-to ihe  Canadian training' division,- and as a  Coii.-eipience could not go to the fiont.  However, I am pleased to slate it ha.>  been possible for me to make .another  l r.-i'i.isfe'r, ho that ere very long I hope  to take my place with the rest of-the  boys on one of ihe -many fighting  fronts; which one I am not at liberty  to say.  Since my arrival in England my  duties'have taken me to many place.-,  and I have learned , many ways in  which- we ��������� cope with the'difficulties  which have arisen; through this fearful  and bloody war. 1 could quote you  many were I allowed to do so. Chief  amongst. tliiMii, how we deal with the  German .submarines. The ways are  uiany, and I am pleased to .-.tale thai  their losses in subs are not less than  seventy. I could quote you special  ioKianics which I know of, but wid  when I cori're back. We are sending  most of our. newly arrived ''troiips now,  to Brauishot, a camp about fifteen  mile's from Alder-shot. It will be a  very nice place in summer, but just  now it i-- ;i-camp of 'mud, owing to the  heavy rains. Ali our troopsiu'-e housed  in hills, except for those who are  billiled. Everyone seems to lie cheerful and are an confident of final victory  as ever we. were.  The Canadians, I am pleased to say,  are well liked here, especially since  thev have proved themselves such  ivoiideiful bi a ve lighters. I can assure you the Germans who oppose the  Canadian troops do not like it one bit.  "They ha ie,had some."  Our friend, C. Saunders, is at the  front and i* doing well. I am sorry lie  did not succeed in joining the Canadians here: h'owever, I am sure he will  join us all again when the war is over.  I am pleased to tell you that. I enjoyed Clnistmas at home, the first  time in fourteen years. So you can  guess there were glad hearts in our  home that. day.  I hope my letter finds you all in  Hedley and the Nickel Plate mine  quite well: and, although a little late,  I wish you all a happy and prosperous  New Year. Of course we would like  to be liack amongst you next New  Year's, but I have my doubts, although f look for the war to be over  some time next fall. You see it took  Great Britain a long time to wake up,  but now t hat she is thoroughly awake,  she will do things.  I will now draw to a close. With  kindest remembrances to you all. I  think iledley and the Nickel Plate an-  to he congratulated on the noble way  they lesponded to the empire's call for  men and money. Believe me, very  gratefully yours,  THOMAS CALVERT.

France, December'25, 191(1.  Dear-Ones at Home:. Chiistrnas is  over iind we nil pulled through it fino  .-iiid diindy. XV o had a rather quiet-  time on'mil- front, but a. lot of heavy  shelling on our right. Had a few  aeroplanes scouting niound yesterday,  but they were not allowed to stay on  ourside very long till they weieclriven  back.  "Wc heard tonight thatsome of our  buys went over and shook hands and  exchanged tobacco, Jieer and buttons  with the Germans. But now they are  up at the olh'ee today for doing so, as  it has been read out in orders several  times that we were not to do any trading with the enemy. It gives them an  idea who are in the ti Cliches and the  strength wc are,' and that anyone  caught doing so would be brought up  heiore the C. O.  You can thank all the Keremeos  people who kindly thought of us pool  fellows in France by sending such a  nice package. Who ever they turned  ,1 no money over to sure inaie good use  :of it. Did not get mine until last  night, just about the time you people  would lie having your dinner. Had  some of the cake and fi uifc tonight, so  will have the pudding later on. Have  not received your parcel as yet, or two  from Iledley���������one from the Lyalls and  one from the town people. Received  one from Mr. and Mrs. Rotherham a  few nights ago, and the packages we  get ai\������ sin ely all appreciated. They  are holding the mail in London, we  hear, as theyare rushing troopsacrn.-s.  Heard from Sue and Ella, also from  Bob. He is well and thinks the trench  life is O. K. He- is about ten miles  away from rue. Wish you would  thank BoIi McCurdy for the Christmas remembrance' he sent me, also the  drawings from Leonard and Frank,  which were very good.  We had church service this afternoon by an old Yukon minister. You  should have seen the dross of some of  the soldiers. Some with Jiig hip boots  and splashed with mud from head to  foot.  We got word that we would not re  ceive any parcels until after Christinas. Another lad and myself undertook to go to town to get some things,  but we could not get a bird of any  kind. So. decided to do the same as  some of the other lads: Eat a couple  of extra -dices of "bully beef" or "Chicago chicken, as we call it here. But  we fared better than that. One of the  fellows had pudding, so we brought  home .some nuts and fruit, and we had  a real good time after all.  Annie, I got you a small ring, supposed to be made, from German shell  noses; also one for each the other girls.  Will ring off, wishing you all a  Happy New Year. From your loving  son and brother.

'   The grants   under  the Agricultural  Instruction Act being  supplemental to those from provincial and other sources make  many     things     possible     that  otherwise would be  considered  impracticable by reason of  the  expense   involved.    In  particular are  they   valuable   in   the  prosecution of the higher  education   in  agriculture.    By  the  help of these  grants  not  only  are   agricultural   colleges   and  schools  made  more efficient in  equipment, but it  is made possible to  pay  men   of  first-class  information     and     experience  salaries becoming to their  station.    Further  graduates  who  have   passed  with   honors and  obtained  degrees in   our   own  colleges and universities are induced   to   stay   in    their    own  country    rather    than    to    go  abroad  in  search  of remuneration to which their ability entitles    them.      Indeed,   several  good men have already been repatriated   and    have   accepted  lucrative   engagements   in   the  land  of  their  birth.    How far  the funds have been used in this  direction is indicated by the following     appropriations    made  from their allotments for 1915-  1910 by the  different  provinces  immediately   for   schools    and  colleges, apart  from  extension  work, short courses, demonstrations, etc.:  Prince Edward Island.. .$10,050  Nova Scotia  27,500  New Brunswick   10,500  Quebec  00,000  Ontario 93,813  Saskatchewan 22,900  Alberta  .38,000  Manitoba and British Columbia apply portions of the  fund iu a similar way, but  through the public, normal and  high schools, and thus the  grants appear under another  heading than agricultural  schools and agricultural colleges:  SING LEE  Laundry,    Contracting    of   all  kinds,   Ditch   digging,  Wood,  Sawing, Clearing lanci, Cooking  and all   kinds of Chinese  Labor.  Kerisheos, B.C.  READ==  Then Think!  Now that you have commenced to read this article, just  keep right on to the end, and  then you will have absorbed  meat of the cocoanut.  What, has this town over done  for you,.; It has fed you, and  clothed you, and housed you,  and given you employment  arid kept the wolf from your  door for these many-years.  It has done more. It has furnished you recreation, and enjoyment, and has guided you  safely over many of the  stones that beset the pathway  of life.  It has praised your good  deeds and has thrown the  mantle of charity over your  questionable ones.  It has been, and is, YOUR  HOME. But what have YOU  done for the TOWN?  You are making you money  here but -where ti re you spend-  ing itr  Are your buying goods from  the local dealer, who pays  and otherwise contributes liberally to the upkeep of the.  community and your home,  or are you sending your mon- '  ey away to some catalogue  house that wouldn't lend you  a five cent piece" to save your  soul from purgatory? *;  And now you have reached  the point where we want you  to stop and think, and think  hard, and to a sane, sensible  and patriotic purpose.
