EDMOND, Prop.  's Most Efficient  Response to War Gal!  A reader down the valley sends us  this week an article taken from the  Chicago Tribune, a leading American  daily.  The frank  nnd   impartial   spirit   in  which this artieleris   written will commend it to our   readers,   citing,   us it  does, actual facts   and   circumstances  from our own national life.   ���������  The article follows:  Immediately   to   the   north 'of   the  United States lies   a   great   dominion  more   closely   resembling   the United  States in resources, in   men and women,.in laws and traditions,   than i.s the  ease with any two great   neighbors in  other parts of  the   world.   The problems of tiie  United  States become the  pioblems of   Canada,   or   with the sequence occasionally reversed tire problems   of Canada become the problems  of the United States.  England was plunged into war overnight, and with her went the empire.  The empire's fight became the light of  Canada and Australia and New Zealand. There was no talk of delay.  The call to arms came from the Canadian government, through the vigorous voice of Sir Sam Hughes, and the  answer to that call was and is as inspiring a spectacle of superb patriotism as the world has- ever seen.  JUST  IlJEGUN TO FIGHT.  Like tlic mother country, Canada  has just begun to fight. From a population one-twelfth the size Of our,  Canada,enlisted, equipped, and trained  33,000 officers and men in six weeks  and shipped them overseas, followed  by 20,000 more, this total representing  the Canadian forces in France and  Flanders today.  That was .'followed by a bout 00,000  men now fully 'trained and in England  ready to be sent iiccross the channel.  That, was followed by 130,000 men now  near the end of their training period  iu Canada. Here are nearly 250,000  men already under- arms.  And now Canada is raising her force  to a total of 500.000 men. Everything  seen in a ' tour., of eastern Canada  makes the observer certain that the  half million will be raised, and that  more, if needed, will follow.  HIO INCREASE IN DEBT.  At the outbreak "1 the war Canada's  net debt was $332,000,000. At the end of  1915 it; was $515.144,0151. Omitting  expenditures influence-! by the war,  the direct cn.-t of the confict wa.s $14ii,-  000,000���������and that this is on a steadily  increasing ratio is shown by the direct  war expenditures of recent months.  The total for the first seven months of  the current fiscal year, beginning  April 1, 1015, was $u'3,000,000,. an average of $9,OUO,00U. November's war-  cost was $13,000,0110 and December's  $19,200,000.  A half million men pledged and a  nonthly cost of $19,000,000 already!  They are figures Lo discourage the  oidinary country one-Twelfth the  size of ours. Hub Canada is as far  from discouragement as any one could  be.  WII-I. ������������������'lUHTTO  I.A.ST MAN  "The last man, the last gun, the last  dollar for the empire," one hears on  every side from men witli enormous  "ncomes who have enlisted as piivates,  from women who have smilingly and  proudly sent their husbands and brothers and sons to tiie front.  The slightly infirm swear to the recruiting officer that they are in perfect  health and able to flirlit; striplings cry  with rage whin the recruiting officer  tells   them he   doesen't   believe   thev  have yet reached tin- minimum age  limit. There ate no pacifists seen in  Canada.  This army of men has been taken  from a comparatively small country.  This Hood of money has gone from an  industrial' 'infant, and more is going.  And here is the amazing situation���������  Canada is not only holding her own,  she is not only advancing credit to the  mother country, but she is witnessing  a prosperity, temporary at least,  which in many ways is more astonishing than that of the United States.  HAS I5IG TRADE IIAf.ANCE  Taking a twelve months period ended with October, the figures for the  last three months being unvailable,  Canada in 1913 .imported goods worth  $074,313,000; In 1915 she imported  goods worth $121,077,000. In other-  words, she spent. $253,000,000 less in  foreign markets. On the other side of  the ledger,'she exported in 1913 $405.-  000,000. Last year she exported $509,-  000,000.  Her profits from foreign sales in  creased by over $100,000,000. From a  debtor nation to the extent of $209.-  000,000 a year she is transformed to a  creditor nation Lo the extent of $88,-  000,000. Her trade balance is bettered  by $357,000,000 in two years.  Canada formerly had to borrow  heavily. England ottered aid early  in the war1. Securities were later sold  in New York. Against the advice of  many, Sir Thomas White decided to  float a $50,000,000 war loan in Canada,  and Canada's subscriptions, almost  over night, were more than double  that amount, so that the loan was increased and $100;q6o,000 sold,_ancl eye-r  then people were disappointed.  "WHEAT AC'tlEAGE GROWS IN 1914  In 1914 Canada raised 101,000,000  bushels of wheal. The government  told the farmers more muse be raised  in 1915, first because the empire would  need it, and only secondly'because the  farmers would profit. Canada sowed  more'.-acres than ever before. By  phenomenal weather conditions Canada raised mm eT per acre than she  ever did before. And prices were high.  The result has been astounding wealth  of prime basic value.  The   crop   reached the total of 376,r  000,000 bushels, far more, than double  the   1914   crop   and   more th.in 50 pet-  cent   better   than   the   best   crop   in  Canada's previous history. L  .   The   British   War. Office   gave    instructions   to  Sir Sam  Hughes,  Canada's ininisterof militia, to obtain 100-  000 empty   shells.    Every one  said he  would   have to   buy   them   from    the  United   States, as  Canada's  steel was  .of the   wrong variety.    Sir   Sam   had  one of the   mills make a   simple shell,  and it was adjudged Lhe peer of Ktig-  land's shells.    Then he had other mills  experiment at completing the shells.  Canada is now turning out from her  own factories���������the factories which  "could not make good shells"���������1,200,-  000 a month, and orders for 22,000.000  are placed.  METALS INDUSTRIES   SHOW GAIN  Her steel mills are developed as never before, and 100,000 men, mainly  skilled artisans, have sprung into industrial existence. She needed copper  industties, and copper band factories  to make the bands about the shells  sprang info existence. She is making  blister copper now, which may be lire  prelude to a big copper refining business.  Canada needed zinc which always  had been handled poorly and consequently was a distinct loss in ores.  Now it is a distinct asset, because it  can be separated at a profit. Canada's  antimony ore was never thought conr-  Continued on Patco Four.  Leap Year Ball Brings  Out Record Attendance  The Gazette's predictions in a recent  number, with regard to the success of  the Leap Year dance, were all more  than vindicated in the record attendance, splendid swing and general success of the whole affair.  Bertie Jones and George Bcale had  gone to the woods and brought in a  supply of evergreens and the young  ladies had used these to decorate the  hall with the result which called forth  expressions of surprise and wonder  from all lips.   ���������  On entering the hall and putting up  the price, the "mere man" was handed  a leap year favor, a. heart pierced by  Cupid's dart (a tooth-pick) this heart  was attached by a piece of baby ribbon to a clothes peg of the spring  variety, which the hapless swain was  supposed to attach to his coat pocket  or lapel. Invariably she of the  gentler sex had to do the attaching as  Mr. Man would be too nervous to successfully perform the operation.  Arrived in   the  dressing  loom and  having deposited hat nndovercoat the  adventurous M. M.   (Mere   Man)  willi  proud mien and throhbing heart sallies  forth to  meet his  fate.    But Fate  is  kind anil he at once is   accosted   hy  a  very young and  charming  lady  who  asks him if he would like to   be   introduced   to   a   lady.    "Yes,"   no sooner  said than done, and   he   finds  himself  bowing  and giving  his  right aim  a  jSiipporc for-tlie/parl-tier. "Tiie."dance is  on and in the midst of scores of other  couples he and his fair lady are lost to  view and thought.    The system with  which every newcomer  was  made  to  feel at home and to enjoy himself, put  absolutely to shame the  conventional  indifference with which one meets the  other   when   the   Lords   of   Creation  have the manipulation   of  the  atfairs  ' of a dance.  The members of the dance committee weie distinguishable from the  other ladies present by the presence  on their right arm of a little heart-  shaped badge affixed with pretty red  ribbon.  There was no confusion. The ladies  did the asking, the announcing, the  introducing as well as attending to  the comforts of their guests until  after the supper and its succeeding  waltz, when the gentlemen assumed  the responsibility and relieved the  now very happy committee.  Everywhere were pierced hearts and  music, the music of smiling faces, of  merry laughter, of rhythmic movement. The dreamy waltz, the swinging two-step, the quick schottische,  the Spanish waltz and the stately  quadrille in quick variety, rounded  out an evening of unparalleled success  and splendid enjoyment.  The orchestra excelled   themselves,  not only in variety,   but  irr   time  and  tone, lending to each  separate dance  its own peculiar mystic touch.    There  is   no   queetron   the   members    have  played themselves into   the  hearts of  Hedley   dancers.    Mrs.    Sproule   and  Miss Doris   Lyall relieved  the  strain  and they were assisted by some of the  gentlemen with the aid of the pianola.  It  was  aftsr three  in the morning  when at last Miss Lyall was requested  to play the lovers'favorite, the "Home  Sweet   Home"   waltz   and   the dance  was over.  But what of the pierced hearts?  The little chubby fellow was there in  many air ardent glance aud fervent  pressure of the hand. It was his  night.      Why    grudge     the  Eiojitcen Planes  Crossing Gem Lines  Mr. and Mrs. Kobei-t (.'lure have received a brief but newsy letter from  Hill Innis, which they kindly loaned  us and which reads as follows:  France, January 23, 1910.  Mit. and Mrs. R. C'lakk  Hedl.-y. H. C.  Dear "Friend: Received your ever  welcome letter- some time ago; so will  try and scratch off a few lines tonight.  Was around to see A. Freeman. He  got my address from that famous  letter.' So he wrote to me and gave  me his address. He left England  shortly after I did, but neither could  get the whereabouts of the other, until he saw my address in the paper.  I stayed and had after-noon tea with  him.    Arthur poured the tea.   ,  We had a great time talking over  old Limes and what we thought about  the mud in France, not forgetting to  say a few words about Fritz's.  Charlie Christinia was over to see  me the other night. He was looking  for Billy Liddicotte, who one time  last summer was attached to the engineers that I am with, but it was before I came over from England.  One thing Arthur' and I regretted  was the good time we were both missing at the rink this winter. But if  we ever get back we will pay up for  lost time.  Say, don't let all the girls get married before we get back. Try and sa've  one for me. ' -   ' ���������--.-- ���������-....  Things have been rather quiet on  our front, except for the artillery, aud  they do a lot of shooting.  On bright days we >ee lots' of aeroplanes.

The little quips were everybody's as the smiles belonged to all.  W'hen Tom Smart found a heart with  the letter "L" on it he quickly guessed  "L for Lizzie." But Lizzie says "the  man who finds her heart will have to  be smarter than Smart." .  The thanks of the committee are  extended to the orchestra. Mrs.  Sproule and Miss Lyall. Mr. Cormack  for clerical assistance, the ladies of  Hedley for refreshments, the people of  the mine for attending. Bertie Jones  and George Benle for decorations, and  George Riddle for the use of his magnificent voice in announcing,  The committee regrets that on account of sickness Mrs. Forbes, one of  the patronesses, whose sympathy has  been in the movenicni ft0111 the beginning, was not able to be present  except for a very few minutes.  The Belgian .Relief Fund is richer to  the amount of nearly $20 as the proceeds of this.dance.  Father John, the. new priest for thip  parish,   arrived  .Saturday   for an inspection of this section of his territory.  "He   visited   the  mine and the Indian  Mission   and   declares    himself    well  pleased   with   the   appearand! of  the  district.    His headquarters will  be at  Penticton, where he will hold services  three Sundays during the month. The  territory is large and it is going to  be  quite,  a   job   to   cover  iL as he would  like to do.    He left Tuesday for Pen-  pretty   ticton by way of Princeton.  rian  Mitt THE flEI'LKY ('ALETTE. MARCH 2.
