For a number of years past thousands of' dollars have; been sent;.out  annually for hams and bacon and other  pork products, including lard.  With the, introduction of the pig in  many of the orchards this heavy drain  on the community's exchequer depreciated, but it is yet a large iteni of  import. That it will soon cease entirely and that we may soon be.exporting,  now seems probable. For the last two  or three years, Mr. H. C. Mellor has  been giving a good deal of attention to  the production of pork, and .has lately  begun' curing . and smoking on his  premises, and already Mr. Mellor has  been receiving a number of compliments jon the excellent quality of his  smoked meats.-���������Penticton Herald.  ������t>    SPAIN REMAINS NEUTRAL  Madrid, May 30, via Paris���������The government yesterday officially declared  the neutrality of Spain in the.war between Austria-Hungary and Italy.  Just beca'ribe a man does not bother  to contradict you does not prove that  he believes all you say.  ing pre-erriptors from  a long vigil at  the doors of the various government  offices,  tickets  were issued  to  applicants guaranteeing their priority.  At Vancouver, although 242 tickets  i' l ���������  were issued, but 80 of the 102 parcels  offered were taken up, the demand be-  ing chiefly for some close-in water-  ���������front'lots in .-i.tract'noar Sechelt, about  26 miles from Vancouver.   There were  >.-     i    .    i '   .,  .  twenty par-eels in this  tract,  and  the  first twenty men in the line recorded  these lots.    At Alberni, where 247 lots  on   Malcolm   Island   and   39 lots   on  Nootka Island were offered,  but six of  the total 286 lots were recorded, though  Malcolm Island was considered as offering better agricultural possibilities  than the logged-off areas opened on  the Lower Mainland Coast.    At Or-an-  brook 21 of the 97 parcels offered to  preemptors   were "recorded:, 'and   at  Fernie the 6 lots opened were taken up.  The demand was for waterfront lots  on the Coast, especially the tract near  Sechelt, and many of those who gathered at Vancouver, turned away without considering  the other lots when  these were recorded by the first twenty  men in the line.   These men assembled  at the-office of the Government Agent  at Vancouver, six weeks  prior to the  opening date, and received in order of  their arrival.    Of the 102 lots  offered  the 80 taken' iip included all of those  situated   on   the   waterfront.     There  were 58 lots in New Westminster district, near Sechelt, on the Malaspina  peninsula, near Lund, and on Homf ray  channel, and 46 were taken up.  Of the  11 lots on Cortez Island 5 were taken  up, and of the 33 lots on Redonda and  Thurlow Islands and at Jackson Bay,  Sunderland Channel, 29 were taken up.  Eighty pre-emptors who filed on the  lower Coast lands included 51 from the  United Kingdom, 20 Canadians, 2 Americans, 2 Swedes, 2 Fins, a. Dane, a  Russian and a Hollander.: ���������' ���������  It was anticipated, especially in view  of the "back to the land" movement,  that there would have been a great  demand for lots on Malcolm.Island,  Of 247 lots offered there and the 30  on Nootka Island, advices from Alberni show that but six were taken at i  both places. The demand is seemingly  confined to the water-front lots close  to the cities.  Malcolm Island, a timbered, low, undulating plateau divided from Vancouver Island by Brcughton Strait, was  reserved in 1901 as a Finnish colony.  The colony continued for some years,  operating and carrying on business as  a community basis. Circumstances  finally caused the abandonment of the  community system, and the greater-  number of the original settlers took up  land individually, others locating on  Vancouver* Island and places in the  vicinity. There are now living on the.  island about 250 people, chiefly members of the original Finnish colony.  The main settlement is at Sointula,  Win. Y. Williams and J. Rogers, of  the Granby, are in town.  Mr. J. F. Rover accompanied the  fiyer on its trip in on Monday night.  A load of steel rails for mine tracking went through yesterday by Innis's  tea ins-to Voigt's camp.  George B. Winkler, who has opened  an office in Princeton for his firm of  Winkler & Mohr, real estate, was in  town last week.  J. D. Brass has made a wonderful  improvement in the appearance of  Mrs. G. B. Lyon's store by putting in  a new and modern front.  Work commenced on Friday morning on Finluy Fraser's new business  block and hall on the southeast corner  of Scott avenue and White street.  Bailey four- feet high is growing at  L. A. Clark's on Green Mountain. A  fine bunch nicely headed but was sent  in for the Gazette's inspection a few  days ago. Green Mountain evidently  deserves its name.  As we go to press a fatal accident  has occurred on the electric tramway  by which Fred Brunskill lost his life.  He was riding on the ore train and.in  attempting to walk towards the motor-  fell between the cars and was killed  instantly.  Mr. J. J. Irwin of Vancouver arrived  in town on Tuesday night to take a  position in the Bank of B. N. A. Mr.  Winter, who has been acting-manager  since the opening of the bank in Hedley, will be leaving in a few days. Mr.  MacHaffie will remain in Hedley and  will be in charge.  While Mr. Spier, of the Eastern  Townships bank, was in Hedley last  week he sold to W. A. McLean the  house and lot where Mr. McLean is  now living on the corner of Scott Ave.  and White Street. The property formerly belonged to Mr. Munson and  the consideration is said to have been  about $1200.00.  Mr. L. W. Shatford, M. P. P.,  came  in on Friday night last and spent  this  week in Hedley,   He has had a busy  time of it at Penticton in  connection  with  the   Southern  Okanagan   Land  Company's business  and is  needing a  rest.  It is  quite   probable   that Mr.  Shatford will build in Hedley this summer and that that portion of his riding  will have more of his time than it has  had during the past year and a half.  His stores at Fairview and Hedley have  received very little of his attention for  the last two years, his time being taken up with his legislative duties and  the weighty undertaking of handling  the Ellis estate which he and his brother so successfully accomplished.  56,000 CANADIANS  OVERSEAS  Total Will Reach 70,000 by July 1st.  Recruiting Proceeds Steadily���������  Keep. Ranks Filled.  Ottawa, May 31.���������Up to the present  time nearly 56,000 officers and ;men-  have been despatched overseas by the  Canadian government. It is anticipated by July 1 the number will reach  approximately 70,000. More than 500  nurses have also gone forward. The  recruiting, enlistment and organization of additional forces is steadily  proceeding arid is the more necessar-y  by reason of the heavy casualties  which have been suffered by the Canadians during the past five weeks in the  fighting near Langemirrck and, its  vicinity. The gallantry, resourceful-'  ness and tenacity of the Canadian  troops during thehe battles have never  never been surpassed.  PROVINCIAL AND GENERAL  The Harvard Varsity eight, should  it defeat Yale in the annual race at  New London next month, will be sent  to Seattle and San 'Francisco to meet  the winner of the Poughkeepsie regatta and western eights.  ������          The Canadian exhibit at San Francisco has so impiesijctl the people of  California that a movement is on foot  to prepare a similar display of the  products and resources of that state to  he shown wherever there is an exhibition of any magnitude.  The 'Dominion Government has arranged to appoint a commission to investigate the iron ore -resources of  Canada and the best means of their  development, as well as the establishment of iron and- steel works to handle  the manufacturing end of the. business  in the Dominion.  Up to May 11 the British lost 201  trading ships of all sorts and conditions by the war. There are Over 8,000  British merchantmen travelling - the  ocean steadily. That is 2i per cent, in  numbers, but in tonnage the loss is  considerably less, as the number includes many trawlers and very small  ships.  Three hundred shacks along the  waterfront of Seattle, some containing  families, others single inhabitants, and  together giving shelter to a popula-  that would, if assembled, make a large  community, are about to be destroyed  by the board of health, which says the  houses are breeding place's for fiies,  rats and other vermin.  where there are two excellent schools;  one having an average attendance of  forty-seven pupils, government wharf,  post office and co-operative store.  During the past summer about 10,000  acres was subdivided and is now being  opened to settlers. The lots on Nootka  Island, where there has been much  settlement during the past few years,  are subdivisions of former timber li-  cenbes.  The 98 lots opened to pre-emption in  Cranbrook district are subdivisions of  former timber limits near Cronbrook,  Kitnberley, Fort Steele, Mayook, Col-  valli, Wardner, Ryan and Tochty.  Only 21 of these lots, little over a fifth  of the total, were taken up. The district is well supplied with transportation facilities, railroads and highways,  and many of the blocks adjoin railroads and roads.  Ten submarines which the Fore  River Shipbuilding Corporation is constructing at Qirincy,'Mass., for.the  British Government will be launched  early next month, within five months  of the time their keels were laid. The  trial trips will follow soon after. The  boats could be. ready for commission  by July 1, although they are not to be  delivered until after the war.  The New York World reports that  73 of 100 leading editorials about the  Lusitania that it received on a single  day last week spoke of the crime with  horror and detestation. Only two took  a German view and only two were  neutral. Fifteen counselled patience  and seven discussed military or other-  points of view. As these papere rep-  resen ted all classes and sections, the  I*classification, is sufficiently suggestive  of American feeling and judgment.  Canadian soldiers in France who  want to spend the intermissions between battles in playing baseball, will  be supplied by American leaders of the  game with the paraphernalia which  they cannot obtain abroad. The soldiers complained to their friends anil  relatives in Canada that baseballs, bats  and gloves were scarce in France, and  official attention was called, with the  result that President Johnson of the  American League and others were appealed to, President Johnson has  promised to contribute several boxes  of new baseballs. ���������m.i  .

The German reply to the American note gains nothing but  time. It does interest tlie United States whether tlie Lusi-  tania carried munitions of: war.  ��������� All merchant ships from tlie  United    States    to    belligerent  ' ports    contain    such     consignments.    United   States  citizens  . have a right to send  them, and  ��������� the fact that ,������������������ the*- do so does  not- give Germany authority to  kill civilians and neutrals on  board the ship. All this will  doubtless be set forth by the  President and Mr. Bryan in their  reply. Both Mr. Woodrow Wilson and his Secretary of. State  are line academic controversialists. They can easily be drawn  into long and ingenious correspondence    with   Berlin.     But  . they" will expect 'the German  submarines to wait until the  dialetics have been concluded  and this may prove to be the  breaking point. The luxurious  recreation of writing despatches  to form a Purple Book cannot  go on while Germany slaugh  ters United States citizens.  Aliens in Canada.  The letter of Mr. Stephen  Wyatt appeals to the common  sence of justice. We have in  Canada many thousands of settlers born in Germany or Aus-  train dominions but never willing subjects of these countries.  Mr. Wyatt mentions the Danes  of Schleswig-Holstein, and the  French of Alsace-Lorraine, who  are technically Germans; also  Poles, Bohemians, Serbs and  Italians who were subjects of  Austria by conquest or annexation. He might have added Armenians, Greeks and Slavs who  were born subjects of Turkey.  These "enemies of our enemies"  should not be treated as hostile  people. Canadian authorities  are not making much mistake  when they intern Teutonic subjects of Germany who are still  aliens, especially if they have  been long enough in this country to be naturalized. Exception  may be made in the case of settlers on the land, in rural districts, when they declare their  loyalty to Brit.:in and are  known by their neighbors to  be inoffensive and no longer  interested in Germany. Teutonic Austrians may be classed as  Germans,though as a. body they  are less dangerous on account  of the difference in  their traiu-  The Kaiser has received the  following reply from the American Ambassador in London as  to the treatment afforded German submarine prisoners in  England:  "Officers   and   men   at Chatham in good health, and   sup-  .-plied with money."

SEE THAT IT IS-  The forces of Austria and Germany are not taking Przemysl  easily or quickly, and it is now  doubtful that they will take the  beleaguered city at all. If it is  done at all it must happen  within a few days, for Russian  reinforcements are arriving fast  and in great numbers. Many  times in the last ten months the  Teutonic Allies have made successful thrusts into territory  previously occupied by the Russians, but always they have  found after a few weeks that  they had the work to do over  again. Russia takes a great  deal of beating.  The fifty-seventh only true  account of the origin of the  name Uncle Sam, as applied to  the United States, has been published.

BUSH FIRES CHECKED  From.advices received from the Hon.  W. R. Ross reporting on fire conditions, it wound appear tha train has  been general throughout the province  during the past week, checking and  extinguishing fires, and stimulating  vegetation, which acts as a barrier  against forest fires. The Hazel ton,  Lillonet and Fort George districts le-  port the fires in those areas as being  under control, thirteen outbreaks in  the first named division having been  fought by the G.T.P. It is noteworthy  that slash burning in the Cranbrook-  district continues, the logging operators being alive to the necessity of reducing one of the main fire hazards.  For the time being the fire situation  is pronounced safe, so far as green  timber is concerned. Fires may continue to break out on cut over lands  or on old burns, but the extremely  dangerous conditions which existed a  week ago have passed away.

How Cliurlen (jio<lfr^jr.J.eIaii������l Brougrlit  the Cynic to ill.s SniKt-H,  Charles Godfrey I.elanil suid that on  his first meeting with Carlylc the wise  man showed himself in a somewhat  cynical frame of mind, from which he  was aroused only by n bit of wholesome opposition.  "And what kind of an American may  you he���������German or Trish or what?"  Carlyle asked.  "Since it interests you, Mr. Carlyle,"  replied Lcliuul, "to know the origin of  my family I may say that I am descended from Henry Lelnnd, a noted  Puritan, who went to America in 1G36."  "I doubt whether any of your family  have since been equal to your old Puritan great-grandfather," growled Carlyle, and this, combined with some  Blurring remarks which he had previously thrown out in regard to America and her history, roused Iceland's  spirit.  "Mr. Carlyle," he said deliberately, "I  think that my brother, Henry Leland,  who got the wound from which he  died standing by my side in the war of  the rebellion, was worth ten of my  old Puritan ancestors. At least he  died in a ten times better cause. And  allow mo to say. Mr. Carlyle, that I  think in all matters of historical criticism you are principally influenced by  the merely melodramatic and theatrical." r'  Carlyle looked utterly amazed and  startled, though not at all angry.  "Whot's thot ye say'.'*' he cried in  broad Scotch.  Mr. Leland repeated the remark. A  grim smile as of admiration came over  the stern old face. It was with a deeply  reflective and not displeased air that  he replied, still in Scotch.  "Na, na, I'm nae thot," he said. And  he dropped into a milder strain and  made the interview an occasion to be  treasured long in memory.  >.'.fl"������fi':-".  AN   ELECTION TRICK.  One  Siimple of the Dodges to "Which  Tliey Ilexort In  England.  Canon J. George Tetley tells the following story of the late Justice Den-  man, who in 1S63 rair for election at  Tiverton, in England. lie was advertised to address the electors on a certain morning. In order to fulfill his  engagement it was necessary for him  to leave by the.9:15 express. He had  taken the precaution of ordering a cab  overnight and was quietly eating an  early breakfast when attention .was  . called to two or three men who seemed  to be hanging about in the neighborhood of his house. He thought little,  however, of the matter, but presently  sent his servant to put his luggage on  the cab, which was due to arrive. The  cab approached, the door, but before  the portmanteau could be located one  of the mysterious strangers jumped in  and was driven rapidly away.  And when this happened a second  time it became evident that something  Very definite was intended. So Mr.  Denman consulted his watch, and, directing his luggage to be sent after  him, he buttoned his coat and, calling  to his aid all his old Cambridge training, took a bee line for the station. He  met not one empty cab till too near the  terminus to be of any service to him.  He dashed through the "booking office" on to the platform, seized the handle of a carriage door as the train was  actually starting and flung himself into  a compartment.  On arriving at Tiverton he found his  committee in a state of extreme anxiety which gave place to astonishment  and relief on his appearance, for the  walls of the town were covered with  placards warning the Liberal electors  that their candidate would not keep  his engagement to address them.  Virtue* of the Swiss.  I did not meet a tramp, encounter a  beggar or a person the least intoxicated during my stay in Switzerland. Of  bow few countries in Europe or America can this be truthfully said. There  may be a small percentage of drunkenness, but if it exists it is kept out of  Bight. A thriftier, cleaner, more wholesome body of people, who carefully observe sanitary laws In their homes, 1  have never met in my various travels.  They are as tidy and neat as the housewives of Holland or the Pennsylvania  Quakers. No wonder Switzerland is a  prosperous country. It owes much of i  its good fortune to the practical intelligence of its law abiding citizens.���������  London Caterer.  Hnnd Onts.  Dealer���������Here is a cigar that is all  right for the money.

CASH  JHVIDENDS  ON  GOODS  YOU BUY  By HOLLAND.  SOUNDS good, doesn't it*?.  And the best of it is it is  rrue. These cash dividends  are paid on every dollar you  spend, provided you spend  wisely and buy goods that  the maker believes in so  strongly that he advertises  them.  Advertised goods are not  always the cheapest so far as  the amount asked for them  is concerned. But they are  INVARIABLY THE BEST.  And this makes them cheapest when all things are considered.  When you buy for the same  - money a better article than  you have been buying you get  a cash dividend on your purchase. When you pay less for  an article of the same quality  you get a cash dividend.
