All the Great Northern engineers  are now working above Hedley, Mr.  Bassett's gang having gone up the end  of last week.  Rev. C. 13. Docksteader, with Mrs.  Docksteader* and child left on Monday  morning's stage for their new field at  Nittinat on Vancouver Island. In  leaving. Hedley they bear with then)  the best wishes of our townspeople  whether connected with the Methodist church or not.  On Friday evening hist a reception  social was hold in the Methodist church  to afford an opportunity to become  acquainted with the new pastor, Mr.  Louis Thomas. A goodly number were  present who spent the evening in  social chat regaled with a dish of icecream which, was so acceptable orr so  warm an  evening,  The contractors are busily at work  between Oro arrd the Boundary line.  One tunnel of about 1200 feet will have  to be driven. If the V. V. & E. bill  were only passed the work would be  prosecuted vigorously on this side of  the line. Oroville is now experiencing  a good sized boom. It is said there  are no loss than eighteen saloons in  business there.  The modern type of submarine carries five torpedoes, .'which it can discharge one after the other by means  of compressed air. So perfect, is the  firing arrangement that hardly any  shock can be noticed either during or  after the discharge, and the equilibrium of the vessel is not upset in, the  least.  "When it is realized that each of  these torpedoes is -/quite capable of  making'it hole in a battleship as largo  as a,haystack, it will'.be seen that the  sinking of a battleship' that is not  armored below water is practically an  easy task for them.  A submarine vessel, however, runs a  considerable risk in' even attempting  to torpedo another ..Vessel. Before it  can fire a torpedo it must come to the  surface and show its periscope in order-  to aim the weapon correctly. If the  battleship once sees the periscope the  object,of the submarine is practically  thwaited, for" such a vessel can be  sunk by a, shell from a big gun when  only its periscope is visible, because of  the fact that the cushion of water-  above the vessel does not offer sufficient resistance to prevent the shell  sinking and holing it.  While running on the surface of the  sea gasolirre engines are used to drive  the submarines.     These  engines  also  generate    electricity,   in   addition   to  propelling the vessel, and this- is stored  up.    As  soon as the submarine dives  tlie  gasoline   engines   stop   and  it is  driven by*_an electric motor, which gets  its power* from the stored, up electricity.    The speed at which the  average  submarine can   travel  is  11 knots  on  the surface and five below water.  ' A submarine can go to the bottom of  the sea near shore and, if it is necessary, "sit" on the bottom for twenty-  four hours at a stretch without coming  up to the  surface  to   ''breathe."   The  ability to do this conies in very handy  when a storm is raging, for below the  surface   waves   are   not   experienced.  Some of the latest types of vessels can  run for 4,500 miles without taking iu a  fresh supply of stores or fuel.  In calm weather the submarine's  range of vision is somewhere about  eight miles. That is to say, an opposing warship can be seen when it is  eight miles away, and, as at that distance, the periscope would.be almost,  if not quite, invisible, the man-of-war  would be unaware of the submarine's  presence. Then, by means of the gyroscope compass, the submarine could  fully submerge itself and- without even  the periscope showing run to within  'striking distance of the vessel it has  designs   upon.  The mere fact that before it can  strike a submarine has to come to the  surface and show its periscope renders  it vulnerable, for* if the periscopes are  showing ii large vessel knows exactly  where the submarines are and can  both fire at them and also keep out  of the way of torpedoes from thorn.���������  Philadelphia Ledger-.  Noted   Newspaper Woman  and  Author  of "Kit's Column Passes Away  at Her Hamilton Home.  News has beerr received  Vancouver of the death of Mrs. Theo Coleman,  which occurred recently at her home  in Hamilton, Out. To thousands of  newspaper readers of Canada and in  many other parts of the world Mrs.  Coleman has been known for years as  "Kit" and was without doubt the best  known and one of the most popular  newspaper women in Canada. She  had a large number of personal friends  in Vancouver as well as a number of  newspaper friends which she had gained for herself during the time in which  she wrote a weekly column for "The  News-Advertiser."  Mrs.  Coleman   was  the  first  news-'  paper woman  in  Canada  to win distinction in that line of work and she.  had also the distinction   of  being  the  first woman war correspondent in the  world, when she went to Cuba in the  war of 1S9S.   As correspondent for the  "Mail and  Empire" she attended the  Diamond Jubilee in 1S97, the World's  Fair in Chicago irr   1S93  and  the midwinter fair in  San Francisco in 1S9-1.  From 1S90, when she first entered journalism, she joined the stall" of the Mail  and Empire and up until a few years  ago    she   conducted    the   "Woman's  Kingdom  on  that  paper.'  There are  few women in Canada who do not remember her bright and interesting articles.   Later she conducted u weekly  column known as "Kit's Column" for  a number of Canadian papers, including the "News-Advertiser.'*  Mrs. Coleman had been in poor health  for some  time,   but her  death   came  suddenly after only two clays' illness  from pneumonia.    She is survived by  her husband. Mr. Theo. Coleman,  her  son Mr. E. B. Coleman, and her daughter, Mrs. John Gartshore.    Mrs. Coleman was born at Castle Bhikely, West  of  Ireland,   in  1864, her maiden name  being  Kathleen Blake Watkins.    She  was  educated in  Dublin and later in  Belgium, coming to Canada in 1SS1.  UNION S.S.

Tramp, tramp, tramp,  The boys are marching;  Cheer up, comrades, bravely stand,  And beneath the Union Jack,  We will drive the Germans back,  And   we'll   fight   for   our    beloved  Motherland.  While the boys are at the front,  Bearing all the battle's brunt,  We, at home, are planning comforts,  while we pray;  Socks and mufflers, sleeping caps,  That's the work we all are at,  While the boys are beating Germans  in the fray.  (ClIORUS.)  While the hissing bullets fly  O'er the trenches where they lie,  In   the   midst   of   winter's   snow   or  biting sleet.  They will bless the women's thought,  That has much of comfort fraught,  As  they wear  the socks   we're  knitting, on their feet.  (Chorus.)  When the British lion's roar  Makes the Kaiser boast no more,  And our soldier boys come  marching  home again,  We at home, who sit and knit,  Will be mighty glad of it,  As we welcome back the boys across  the main.

Martin  Burrell. in the War Book.  -Siiipts this sacrifi,ee.-J.-iCanacla  is not. as a nation, ardently impulsive.    This ,very, Jt'act^ may  make her all   the' ju lore  n  consequential   factor   in    a   long-  fought  war.    One  evidence  of  this  is  the  deadly   seriousness  with which she is living down  tlie public scandal that attended the spending of her first war  appropriation    of     $50^000,000.  Neither    sellers,    middle,    nor  government could boast of entirely  cleanly  hands  in   those  transactions���������but what war, in  what coutry,   was  ever fought  without   'commercial:',   smirch?  Graft,  then,  is. not  the   issue,  only  the spirit in   which    the  would-be grafters -ire put clown.  In    Canada,    Premier    Borden  himself, on the hist day  of" the  late session pf Pariiament, rose  from his seat in  the   House  of  Commons and read  out of, his  party,    without'.!'sparing   their  names,   two     fellow-Conservatives.    Mr.   Borden's  action   is  typical of Canada's whole attitude toward this great war.   It  is  a safe  guess  that the commission .delegated    to    expend  the new appropriation of $100,-  000,000 will live up to Canada's  best ideals.   Today our neighbor  is not contributing mere rhetoric to  her mother country;   she  is giving her own   money   and  ; her own blood: she is doing her  duty, and duty and desire ;ire,  with Canada, one."  \ ?.,  Today the ladies of Hedley  who'are actively interested in  Bed: Cross work will 'void a  "Sock Reception" and Tea- in the  Union church. The proceeds  will be used to provide material  for making' bandages,��������� etc.. required iu the* held by the Red  Cross Society. All you need to  take with you is a pair of socks  (more if you like) and a dime  for the tea. We bespeak for tlie  ladies a good attendance to aid  a worthy cause.  A movement is on foot in  town to hold a big patriotic affair of some kind to assist financially the universal efforts to  ���������supply comforts to our fighting  ��������� boys at the front. A preliminary meeting of a few of the  interested ones will be held tonight, and the local Band will  offer their services free for a  concert or dance or both. The  offer is an exceptionally good  one and we trust that any who  possess histrionic or musical  talent will, not bo slow in following  this lead.  Collier's on Canada's Share  in the War.  Canada's part in the war elicits the following comment from  the well-known American weekly, Collier's:  "So Canada has more than  100,000 men' under arms.

That  bloody day on which 0,000 Canadians gave up their Jives, outnumbered hut standing off the  Germans at a. crucial point near  Ypres, brought 'aughter and  mother country closer together  for   all    time.    Perhaps    what  Aggressive Germany.  All  the   reports   indicate  the  arrival in Belgium of a German  army either-..freshly   mobilized  or else released from  the  eastern tlieatre of  operations.    Ave  may look for a new aggressive  in France  and   Flanders.   .Germany is lost when she assumes  the defensive.    Her whole campaign-was her only hope.  That  was the teaching of Bernhardi.  That was the reason the advance  though Belgium   was   declared  to    be    a    military     necessity.  Though the war lias been prolonged  far    beyond'   the    time  when Germany expected to end  it, she still finds it necessary to  force the fighting,    she does so  because from their inside position, with their better means of  transportation,     the    Teutonic  Allies can still meet the enemy  iu  equal or superior   numbers.  With   her 'immense .supply   of  ammunition and  her fine military    industrial     organization,  Germany is far -superior to her  enemies    in     equipment     and  munitions.    But in all these respects time is on the side of the  other Allies.    They are raising  men faster   than   the  Teutonic  enemy.     They   are   rapidly   increasing their supply ol: munitions by manufacture and   importations.   Every day that the  war is prolonged is to the disadvantage of Germany.    What  she is to do she must do now.���������  News-Advertiser.

"SpenJt For Yourself."  Lord Leicester of Holkham nearly a  hundred years ago was a widower and  Jn the latter part of his life nearly  blind. He enjoyed an intimate friendship with his neighbor, Lord Albemarle,  and had in his own mind selected  Lady Anne, one of Lord Albemarle's  daughters, as the future wife of his  nephew and the mistress.of Holkham.  One day Lady Anne came along to  join his morning ride, and Lord Leices-  ier seized the opportunity of asking  her:  "Anne, my dear, how should you like  to he mistress of Holkham ?"  "There is nothing I should like better," answered Lady Anne, drawing  herself up in her saddle.  "Then I shall send my nephew William to court you."  Lady Anne drew herself up still more  and, tightening her rein, replied calmly,  but very gravely:  "I shall not be mistress of Holkham  on those terms."  It was then the old gentleman's turn  to rein in his horse. He looked his companion hard in the face and asked her;  "Why, you don't mean to say you  "would marry me?"  "Yes, indeed I would. And there is  nothing I should wish more."  This was a wooing that was not  "long a-doing," and it led to a most  happy marriage.     .  We will deliver Ice  every Tuesday and  Friday Mornings.

The catalpa never shows the sear  and yellow leaf in autumn like the  sumac, hard maple, etc., for the reason  that its leaves are caught in a green,  tmripeiied state by the first severe  frosts. In one night their bright green  is turned to a dingy black. This sudden check gorges the cambium layer  and new wood of the stem with water.  An excess of water swells the protoplasm of the cells to such an extent as  to rupture the inelastic bark, and in  trees where the cell structure of the  wood is not ripe the crack will extend  into the wood often with a noise like  an explosion. This often occurs in the  fall when it is not cold enough to stop  plowing. Sometimes there is much  loss in nursery in this way with varieties not fully ripe when the first frosts  come. Sometimes, indeed, it injures  very hardy varieties. In such cases the  swelling of the protoplasm comes from  the water absorbed at the ground surface when combined wet and cold come  together in autumn. The cracking of  cherries and pears comes from the  same cause���������that is. by absorbing water  on wet days, causing an expansion of  the protoplasm. With trees the best  treatment is to cover the rupture with  moist clay and .then wrap to exclude  the air as much as possible.  Believing?,   He  Got   Ready  to  Dodge.  A Hudson river steamboat captain  extended the hospitalities of his snug  wheelhouse to a clergyman who could  not find a seat on the crowded upper  deck. The visitor was chatty, and  when he had plied the man at the  wheel with sundry questions concerning his spiritual welfare the skipper  risked the reverend gentleman:  "Do you believe in predestination?"  "Of course I do," was the emphatic  reply.  .  "Then you believe that whatever 1b  to be will be?"  "Certainly."  "Wch, I'm glad to hear it"  "Why?"  "Because I'm going to pass that boat  ahead in just fifteen minutes if there is  any virtue in hard coal and safety  valves. So don't bo alarmed. If the  boilers are not going to burst they  won't, that's all."  The divine arose, put on his hat and  was leaving the wheelhouse when the  captain observed:  "I thought you believed in predestination?"  "So I do, but, my good man. 1 prefer  being a little nearer the stern when it  takes place."���������New York Press.
