GREGORY  CIVIL KXGIXEKK and HRITISH  COLUAII3IA LAXD SURVEYOR  Star Building Princeton  A number of Great Northern officials among whom were the president ancl vice-president paid Vancouver a visit last, -week and handed  out information about as liberally and  as. definitely as railway officials ever  do. Regarding the status of matters  so far as immediate, coast connection  is concererid they give the thing-one  grand boost backwards about three  months for it was about three months  ago that we were assured that all had"  been definitely agreed on between the  Great Northern and Kettle Valley for  completion to tire coast and each,company knew what portions it had to  build and had a clear field to go on  and build it. Dates were even set  for calling for tenders for building the  most important parts.  ���������Either these reports of three months  ago were worthless or we are having  a repetition of the tactics practised  with the Cement Company when the  railway agreed to do certain things  and came back later with quite a  different song. At all events here is  what the Vancouver Province has to  say of the recent visit to that city:  Mr. L. C, Gilman, assistant to the  president, who'- met the head executive official here yesterday morning,  vvas asked by the Province representative when he thought tenders would  be called for the construction of the  section of the Kettle Valley line  through the Hope Mountains which  vvas to be used jointly by the V. V.  & E. (Great Northern) and the Kettle  Valley Railway.  He stated that he had had a number  of conferences recently with Mr. Warren, president of the Kettle Valley  line, and that the arrangements for  the section of the road had all been  settled except for the adjustment of  a few details which would most probably be decided in the course of the  next few days. He expressed the  hope that everything-would be in readiness within a week for proceeding  with the plans for the Hope Mountain  joint section, and calling for tenders  for the work.  Accompanying Mr. Gray on his trip  of inspection were Mr. R. Budd, Chief  engineer; Mr. Alexander Stewart, assistant chief engineer; Mr. M. J. Cos-  tello assistant general traffic manager, and Mr. "W. D. Scott, general  superintendent; Mr. A. H. McNeill,  K.C.. the local legal adviser for the  G. N. R.; Mr. T. G. Hastie, resident  engineer, and Mr.-K. J. Burns, assistant. general freight agent, met the  president on his arrival on the boat  fom Seattle yesterday morning and  accompanied him on his trip.  A VERY SAD CASE  Four-Year-Old  Child of Ronald Hewatt  Is Burned to Death at Fairview  THE GEOLOGICAL CONGRESS  Delegates from Foreign Slates Already  Arriving���������Twenty-five Countries  Officially  Represented  VISIT OF WATER  ���������  COMMISSIONERS  A heart rending fatality occuried at  Fairvview  on Friday- last- when Cecil  Hewatt,  scarcely  four  years  old. received  injuries  from which  he died a  few  hours  later.     Like   ninny other  children of his ago the little lad had a  strange   fondness   for   matches,   ancl  managing lo get hold of some, he went  outside   to  where   there  was a barrel  lying on its side and  partly filled with  hay which   vvas used as  a. dog kennel.-  The little fellow  crawled into the barrel;  without  realizing the  awful consequences of wh.-it he was doing, he lit  a match  which set  fire to   the hay at  the mouth of the barrel, and thus prevented himself from getting out.    The  mishap vvas soon noticed by one of the  other children   who at once  ran to his  mother who came  and seeing the desperate condition of her child took hold  of the  barrel and  emptied  it out  on  the ground, to set the little fellow free.  She caught him up and rolling him in  sonic cloths ran with him to the water.  Medical  aid   was  sought   but the boy  died about three hours later.  The keenest sympathy is felt for the  bereaved parents who are almost paralyzed with grief at the sudden and  terrible nature  of their  bereavement.

Carle and Billy Daly on board from  Keremeos and they made .straight for  Dr. McEwen's and taking the doctor*  on board proceeded to the; hospital.  Allison and   Daly had been prospecting up  the Ashnola and  about ten  o'clock  Monday morning Allison vvas  on a rock slide and fired  off his revolver, a .45 Colts,  as a signal which had  been agreed between   them.    He was  putting; the gun   back-'in   the holster  vvlien  he slid down and  trying to recover himself the gun instead of going  into the holster, fell arid struck a rock  which  made it go oft' and as a result  the bullet struck him   below the ankle  and turning off, penetrated the foot.  ��������� They   rode   clown   to   the   railway  which they reached in   time to get the  afternoon train to Keremeos where an  auto vvas secured   to bring the patient  up  to Hedley.    Dr. McEwen  dressed  ���������the   wound   ancl  does  not anticipate  any permanent injury to the foot.  The twelfth International Geological Congress, which is to be held in  Canada this year, gives promise of  being a marked success. The governments of twenty-five different countries have signified their intention of  sending.official delegates and various  scientific institutions in thirty-eight  countries will' be represented. The  membership already is seven hundred  and thirty, consisting of leaidng geolo-;  gists and mining engineers of ��������� the  whole civilized world.  The session of the Congress, will  be held in Toronto on August 7 to 14,  inclusive, during which papers of  great general geological interest will'  be read and discussed. The most attractive feature, however, is the opportunity that will be afforded to visit  the leading mining districts'and points  of greatest geological interest in the  country. To this end a great number-  of excursions have been arranged for,  and a series of guide books have been  prepared by the Geological Survey.  This set of guide books covers practically all through railway lines and  steamboat routes from Sydney in Cape  Breton to Dawson in Yukon. These  consist in all of 1,600 pages, contain  well arranged notes, are of convenient  size,- are accompanied by geological  coloured maps and sections and make  a notable contribution to the literature  treating of the geology of the country.  Those guides are for sale by the Congress.  In the itinerary for the excursions  which was prepared some time ago  Hedley Camp will receive a visit from  one of the excursion parties numbering, from 15 to 20 geologists on August  22 and while their stay will be short  effort is being made to^ show them the  leading features of interest in the  Camp. ! -  ���������Water Eranch  of Department of Lands  Looking Into Conflicting Claims  in River at Hedley  CANADA WINS AGAIN/  For the Fourth Time a Canadian Member  of the' Bisley Team Carries Off the  Coveted King's Prize  H.

There are still some old shareholders  in Rossland who will be glad to know  that there is a little more; to come to  them in the way of dividends from  the old York Loan Co. It'is possible  that the losers in that concern will receive a third and last dividend before  the end of the present yerr. Shareholders have already received two  payments of 25 cents on the dollar-  each, and a lawyer in touch with the  situation states that the third  payment should be about five or; six  cents, making a total of about 55 cents  on the dollar. ���������Rossland Miner.

Lieiit.-Governor on behalf of the  Crown and by Premier McBride on  behalf of.the government of British  Columbia.  On Sunday she steamed over to  Vancouver where she was again welcomed on behalf of the city.

Bisley, July.27.���������Private W. Hawkins of the 48th Highlanders,-Tin-oh to;  won the King's prize of 1913 yesterday  with a grand aggregate of 'A'AO out of a  possible 355, thus repeating the  triumph of Private Clifford of Toronto, who carried off the King's prize  for the Canadians in 1911. The finish  of the last range of the filial stage was  very exciting, being a.keen contest  between Sergt. Fenby, Fifth Royal  Warwick, who finished second with  329 and the winner. Fenby finished  his shooting some minutes before  Hawkins with an aggregate of 329.  Hawking made a magpie on his 14th  shot and required a bull on his final  shot to win, which . he obtained amid  the deafening cheers of the Canadian  team. Sergt. Omintmciseii, who had  been making the pace throughout the  match, finished fourth with 324, making a miss half-way through the last  range and following this with a string  of iniiers.  On Friday last Messrs. Wm. Young,  Comptroller of Water Rights, Vic-  tori.-i, and J.C. Dufresne, of the Water  Branch of the Department of Lands,  paid ;i visit to Hedley to look into the  merits of the dispute at present existing.between the Hedley Gold Mining  Company and T. 1). Piekard in reference to apportionment of water in the  Similkameen river to satisfy the applications of each to a water record  for [lower.  As our readers are aware the application of Mr. Piekard vva.s the first-  one fyled and vvas first- made when he  held a bond on-the Apex group, and  vvas .Lheiet'ore interested in the question of power because of his bond and  of some cither interests which beheld  in the camp. 'After' compliance with  the preliminaries of the Water Act a  record was granted by the Water-  Branch to Mr. Piekard for the amount  of water for which he made-application. The Hedley Gold Mining. Company later applied for a record of  sufTicienl water lo develop the amount  of power they required, and as their  record conflicted with the former one  granted, there arose a question for, adjudication at the hands of the Water  Branch.  Plans had to be''fyled and' application made for approval of them. This  wtis done by Mr. Piekard and as the  Act gives opportunity for conflicting  interests to fyle objections to the approval of plans, the- Hedley Gold Mining Company availed themselves of  the privilege offyling an objection,  and it vvas to look into the matter of  grounds for the" objection which the  commissioners came at this time to do.  They spent a couple -of 'days on the  river and made their investigations  alone and from what we can gather  from remarks which they let- drop  while here, they did not anticipate  any'lengthy tie-up and thought the  whole matter would be settled inside  of thirty days to enable work to proceed with installation of power plant.  It is reported that they were of the  impression that there was water*.'  enough in the river for both if the  plans- were" made with the object of  developing.and hot obstructing.  The date set for consideration of the  matter would appear to be August 20,  from notice given elsewhere in this  issue.  HOW, HOT WAS IT  MINING. NOTES  the  the  has  Work will be resumed on  Oregon about the beginning of  month. A lot of development  been done in the past few weeks tind  the property is said to be looking  very well.  Jimmy Riordan of Olalla was in  town on' Sunday. He came up to  meet some parties who were expected in to look over the Billy Goat  and adjoining claims. The Billy  Goat has the. ear-marks of a good  property which should take the eye  of mining investors.  The British Columbia Copper Co.  are making arrangements "'to develop  motive power on Whipsaw Creek.  They first staked water for power and  a few days ago they made another  application for- permission to store  150.000,000 gallons of water. The  point where the dam is to be placed is  in the basin bounded by the loop  made by the trans-provincial auto  road a few yards below where the  creek is crossed by the high bridge.  Good progress is being made in  driving down the Dickson incline in  the Nickel Plate mine, and incidentally it may be interestinc- to know  that the pay values from it are always  strongly in evidence. The Nickel  Plate mine has always been noted, as  "the mine without dumps," and but  for the amount of dead work which  vvas unavoidable when No. 4 tunnel  was being driven, scarcely any waste  dump would be in evidence on the  property, and the Dickson incline is  apparently going to enable it to  maintain that reputation.  During any exceptional spell of heat  or .'cold  the general  tendency is to regard it "the worst ever".     Last week  we had  it pretty hot .for Hedley, and  although   it did  not'manage  to climb  into   the  three 'figures on any day, it  managed . to establish a record for the  week   that  happens to  exceed that of  any week since meteorological  observations  first   began   to   be   taken   in  Hedley eight years ago.    A lot of nonsense   wtis   talked  about   former   hot  spells of other years when  it was said  to have held at 110 for several days at  a stretch.     The stretch, however, vvas  .-ill   in the  imagination   of  those   who  said so.    As a matter of face there has  been   no day  in the eight years when  it  reached   101  and   only   three  clays  when it reached 100 in the shade. They  were July 21st, 1907 and June 24th anil  25th. 1912.    For the week ending July  20th, 1913 there vvas  an average maximum   temperature  of 94.14 and if we  were to shift it forward one clay so as  to take in Saturday the 19lh ancl leave  out Saturday 20th, on   which   clay  it  only   went as  high  as   S7, we  would  have an average for the week of 95.71.  The .mean  temperature "for the week  ending  July  20th   was 70.S5which is  also  a record.     The nearest to it vvas  70.7S in   the week ending August- 3rd.  1907.    There vvas one respect in which  that week in 1907 exceeded last week's  heat and that was in the hotter nights,  for in that week the average minimum  for the week was 59.85 while last week  the average  minimum was onlv 59.57..

From it inany interesting  le.-soiis are to lie drawn, and if one  were to indulge the 'inclination for  'discarsiveness upon these features,  columns'"Hid pages of interesting matter might be written which would  Ira.verse the fields of modern business  economics and high finance, and also  shed some interesting .sidelights on  history.  One section of the epitome has to do  with matters of re-organization and  allotment of shares, and one can hardly imagine the "gentlemen adventurers trading into Hudson's Bay" as their  original charter from the. merry monarch vvas inade to read, delving into  the most anathematised modern practice- of melon cutting. And yet that  is the very thing that, their present  day successors have now been engaged  in as shown by the hew issue Of 200,  0(H) five pet- centcuniulative preference  shares of ������5 each which were offered  at par to the holders of then existing  Ordinary shares.  Frequent experiments ; have shown  that one single test of a cow's milk  is not reliable as an indication of what  percentage of fat her milk normally  contains. A great many well known  causes affect the test, also some causes that are unknown at present even  by the closest students. This "variation in the test" is one of the puzzles  of the cow's'individuality,,-and because  of these puzzling variations it is advisable to take composite samples at  intervals so as to ascertain the average test.  Some recent painstaking investigations at one of the dairy research  stations in' England with seven cows  for two days even covering such details as a separate test of eleven, successive pints, three times a day, from  the four quarters of the udder, show  that while the average test <with the  cows giving thirty pounds of milk  per day was 3.6 per cent, the variation was all the way from only six  tenths of one per cent up to nine and  a half per cent of fat.  This is clear proof of how misleading one single test may be. If the  real earning capacity of each individual cow is to be computed, it must  be on the basis of her annual production of milk and fat less the cost of  feed; regular weighing and testing  give that knowledge which every factory patron should have of each cow  he keeps.

RATES MODERATE  The post of poet laureate-, for Great  Britain has been filled by the appointment of Dr. Robert Bridges. It is ah  appointment with which neither the  Sovereign nor' Parliament have any  say, and lies at the sweet .will of the  Premier. In giving the honor to the  one to whom he has, Premier* Asquith  has shown to the whole British nation  and to the English speaking people  the world over-, how little he cares for  them or their opinions when his own  whims or spleen ihas to be humored;  and it is very doubtful indeed whether  a single incumbent of'the office since  old Ben J orison was first installed in  the reign of James I, was as little  known as Dr. Robert Bridges. Outside of England the man is practically  unknown ancl unheard of by at least  ninety or ninety-five per cent of the  British nation, and in England itself  he is said to be known only to a very  small circle of literary people. So far  as fame und fitness goes the laureate  of the British people is Rudyard Kipling. Him they know aiid him they  honor and he has been their laureate  in fact since Tennyson died, ho matter  who held the appointment or drew the  insignificant salary attached. He had  qualified for it before Tennyson died,  by writing "The Song of the English."  That poem which he himself called his  "song of. broken interludes,  A song of little cunning from a singer  nothing worth."  and which is the opening  piece  in his  volume "The Seven Seas," was written  by him away  back  in  1S88 and  won  his  right   lo   the   laureateship.     Its  great worth and the genius it displayed   was  recognized  by Tennyson  who wrote the author of it '.his warm  congratulations    on    its   appearance.  There    is   therefore   good   reason   to  claim   that Kipling is  the laureate of  the British  people,  when  one of  the  greatest who ever held the office recognized his great genius. In that  estimate of Kipling's work Tennyson  again showed his own greatness in  seeing things as the people see them.  After all what matter is it who Premier Asquith may appoint? If Watson had not quarrelled with Mr.  Asquith's daughter and started in to  blackguard her in verse, he might  possibly have been the one instead of  Dr. Bridges; and if Kipling had not  written his disapproval of some of Mr.  Asquith's legislation, it is doubtful  whether- Mr. Asquith would'have been   SUBSCRIBE FOR THE   GAZETTE  The movement at present obt.-i.iiiihg  of "'modernizing the sales shops" as  characterized by these old fashioned  aristocratic financiers whom writers  of fiction haJve so often told us were  in the habit of holding in destestation  everything pertaining to trade, is also  most interesting. Arrd for- those who  hold the antiquated hotroh that an old  established house has no need to acl-  vertise,the policy of the Hudson's Bay  Co. who are to-day among the best  a'dvertisers, is or should be, illuminating. The advertising beliefs of the  company today are scientific arid hot  a mere passing whim on the part of  those in charge. The appropriation  for advertising is on a definite basis  and that basis is a liberal percentage  of the sales made. There is ho 'older  commercial concern than the Hudson's  Bay Co. but they found out from experience that they must keep abreast  of the times the same as all the others,  and to do so, must advertise liberally  and "modernize their sales shops."  "OUR MUTUAL  FRIEND"  When   this  expression   is  used   some  Canadians  instantly think of Charles  Dickens' much-loved masterpiece.  Others associate  the words  with The  Mutual  Life. Assurance  Company  of  Canada, and with reason, for  It is  the  only  Mutual Life Insurance Company  incorporated in tbe  Dominion.  It solicits only Canadian business.*  It invests only in Canadian Securities, and  Tt has paid to Canadian families,*  often in times of direst need $12,800-  000 since its 'foundation in 1870.  For- these and other reasons Canadians  refer to  THE MUTUAL LIFE ASSURANCE. 60., 01 CANADA  as Our Mutual Friend  *   The colony  of Newfoundland  is in  cluded.  W. J. TWISS  Manager for- B.C.  A.

Mrs. Ncill of Princeton c.-inic down  last week to spend ;i few clays with  Mrs Boweririiin.  Mr. and Mrs. E. H. Williams entertained a number 'of their friends on  Tuesday eveirig.    '  Carl Hair-sine, traveller for the.  Western Canada Flour Mills company  was in town last week.  M.C.Hill, principal of Hedley School,  went to Nelson last Week where he  will spend a month of his holidays.  W. A. McLean, Airs. AIcLean, and  Homer were down in their Case car  on Sunday returning the same evening.  . A. Creelman and W. C.

Game warden Schissler- was in town  tnis week disposing of gun licences to  those requiring them and all who are  going to do any hunting will require  them. '  .  Constable*   Pr-itchard   Of   Princeton  was   in   town   last    Friday.     He    is  directed by Chief Con-stable   Simpson  to   have   an , eye   on    Hedley    until  ' another- man may lie. sent.  Jim AIcNulty returned the end of  the week from Independence Mount-  airr where he was helping Tom Roderick to do development work on  some claims which they hold jointly.  A .meeting was held on Alonday  evening to' arrange for Labor- Day  sports "and part of the programme  was decided on. Another meeting is  to be, held on Saturday evening to  complete. '  Les. Robertson came down from the  mine this week with an injured eye.  Something struck him while he was  working and lie 'does not know  whether there is a piece of steel in  ' the eye,or,hot.  J. A. ��������� Schubert of Tulameen was  ^i visitor in Hedley on Wedensday.  He had been down the valley and  called on his way back to see the  Hedley Trading Company's stores in  which he is interested.  W. K. Pollock arrives here to-day  from Saskatoon to relieve in the Bank  of B.'N. A. during the.absence of Air.  Dalton. He will act as teller and Mr.  McKenzie will step up as acting  manager until Mr. Daltori's return.  F. M. Gillespie went to Princeton on  Saturday where he was met by Homer  McLean;/in the auto arid -went out to  the i-qacl;'camp, returning to Hedley  on Monday. He spent Sunday with  Mrs. Gillespie at the camp while the  rest went to Hedley.  The hot weather last week effected  the attendance at the moving picture  performances on Friday and-Saturday  last, and Air*. Fraser announced that  tto further" entertainments would   be  given  for  a  few   Weeks    until    the  worst of the hot weather   was   over.  Of the seven  who wrote on the entrance at Hedley cirriy two failed;  The  successful ones vt*er-e Margaret Clarke  and two Harrison children' frorri Kere-  '���������eos and Wilson Powell   and   Louise  Price from Coalmont.   There has been  I no report as yet of the results of the  j High School exams at which a nurn-  [���������ber.-of Hedley. pupils wrote at; Sum-  [merlahtl.  A couple of electric light poles that  Evidently Suffeied from heat prostration went down in the hot spell last  weejk ancl there were no electric lights  in town.for one night. There rs something either* in the soil or the climate  of the Simiikarneeri Which is decidedly  hard orr poles, and the process of pre-  Jserving wood by creosotirig would  appear to be advisable.  H. E. Ridley, representing the Ford  I motor car, was in town this week in  the interests of his concern. The Ford  is manufactuaed in Walkervillo, Ont.,  where they claim to make the bust  whiskey, and Mr.Rrdley is quite confident that the Ford stands to other  cars even better in comparison than  (Hiram Walker's best is to all other-  kinds of booze.  Miss Alarguerite Beam is proving  herself a very efficient auto driver- and  handles the Company's new Cadillac  1 car with the skill of a professional  I chauffeur". Her knowledge of driving  ! is not confined to a mere manipulation  of levers and brakes but embraces a-  solid grounding on the mechanism of  the car- and the technique of driving.  At her home in Denver she had extensive experience in the handling of  their own Abbott Car which closely  resembles the Cadillac in construction,  and if anything went wrong with the  engine it would not be at all unlikely  to see her don a machinist's smock and  gloves and put it to rights, if there  were no men folks handy by who were  competent to undertake it.  District road supervisor H. A,  Turner made a trip up the valley the  beginning of the week and vvas, in  town on Monday. He was accompanied by A. S. Hatfield of Kaleden  who took a run over to see the valley  and call on T. C. Brooke who belonged  to the same, column in South Africa,  although one was with the Canadian  contingent and the other with the  Shropshires.  C. P. Dalton, manager of the Bank of  B. N. A., leaves to-day for Vancouver  to spend his'holidays and, not incid-  ently but principally, to take part in a  very important function which happens to be no less than his own marriage. On his return at the end of  the holiday and honeymoon combined  he will- be accompanied by Mrs. Dalton and will take up house-keeping in  the residence of F. AI. Gillespie at the  corner of White St. and Daly avenue.  In mentioning last week that Chief  Charlie Allison had , been brought up  to the hospital, the Gazette was going  by a programme which had been laid  out but had been-changed, Dr. White  ciime'over from Penticton in consultation with Dr. AIcEweri and owing to  the intense heat prevailing at the  time it, was thought inadvisable to  move him, especially in veiw of the  fact that a case of blood poisoning  which was in the hospital at the time  increased the-risk still more. He is  making fair progess at his home down  at Sixteen Mile Greek.  An important brochure on road engineering has been issued by All-. E.P.  Girdwood, engineer for the Public  Works Department. It is issued from  the Vernon News office; is neatly illustrated ancl deals with the question of  mattress protection of banks of rivers  and.shows how public highways that  are liable to be assailed by high water-  and currents' may be effectively and at  moderate cost, protected from injury.  Much of this work is done to best advantage in the winter- season %vhen  other work is scarce and sleighing  renders transportation of the broken  rock easier.  Cliff-dwellers is 'a term that only  inadequately describes the drillers in  the new camp Clifton. Sea-gulls, cormorants and other* water fowl build  their nests on rocky ledges,. but the  tents in the new camp are about as  airily perched orr the rock faces of  the canyon as the average nest of  gull or eagle. Irr sortie places an improvised balustrade is neccessary to  keep those who are in the habit  of rolling over in their sleep fr-om  rolling out of the tent over the face  of the cliff, ahd periodical lectures  on the danger of somnambulism are  deemed advisable in the interests of,  the insurance companies to prevent  some from realizing too early orr their-  policies.  A     United     States     Immigration  officeer was in Hedley about a fortnight ago looking up the record, antecedents und citizenship of Alate Irwin,  formerly known in Hedley. as a harber  who conducteda shop in Hedley for a  while.    In.hist-, week's Oroville Gjfnzette  we notice where the authorities had  made a descent on his premises,  prepared to deal with him and his wife  on rather serious charges, but he had  crossed the line to Osoyoos.    Here is  si pointer for- the Canadian  Immigration officers to get busy.   A man who  rs running away from justice from another   country   is   not   a   desirable  citizen  for   Canada.     If   he   was   a  Canadian, as the immigration people  on  the Other side   seemed   to   think,  then Canada has a right to put   up  with him and should deal with him as  with all her other unruly citizens; but  if he is not,  there is no reason why  Oroville should be able to chase him  away from there to  cause  trouble  on  this side of the line.  Those who cannot swim should be  very careful in their choice of a swimming hole in which to learn. At the  old swimming hole in the Similkameen river a little above the mouth of  Twenty-mile there were some narrow  escapes from drowning last week.  There is a back eddy at the place  which has resulted in making a nice  sandy beach that is tempting, but the  same force which deposited the sand  on the beach has dug the river bottom  into deep pits and deposited deep layer's of loose sand on the brink of these  pits, and in this loose sand no secure  foothold can be had. In wading out,  one step is enough to take the unwary  bather from waist deep to a depth far-  Over his head, and onCe in, there is no  chance for him except swimming for  it, for even if he should be near enough  the edge of the deep pit to touch bot-  torii the loose sand on the edge gives  way and Will participate him back into the hole. Even swimmers who are  at all subject to cramp are running  risks in it, and it would be well for  those who go swimming there to take  a good stout rope and fasten to some  tree or stake on the shore with the  other end buoyed out in the stream  beyorid these dangerous places.  ���������^A^^^^m^^^^^  YOU REQUIRE  A NEW SUIT  Buy the House of Hobberlin Brand  and   Get the   Best on the Market  We have just taken into stock a large shipment of  their up-to-date, tailor-made clothing  Men's Stylish Suits  to sell from $20.00 to $25.00  We will be pleased to show them to you  Successors to  (J.

There is just as good work being done in country  offices as in the cities, and often as poor Avork in the cities  as in the Avorst country shops  In Prices the country office can do just as Avell for  you and you save the express. The city printer may get  his stock a trifle cheaper by saA-ing the local freight, but  his rent and other overhead expenses are higher, and in  the end he is obliged to charge as much or more than the  country printer will .charge for the same class of Avork.  THE   fOLEJ   GAZETTE  is prepared to  do any kind of Avork that may come along.
