"MONEY TO  LOAN  One of the best   recommendations  that a'community  can   have in those  *  *  stringent financial  times is to have a  concern or company that is not effected by the war and one that is keeping  up it dividends the same as in times of  peace and plenty.  This is exactly what Hedley can  point to: and on Wednesday we re  ceived the official notice from the head  office of the Hedley Gold Mining Co.  in New York .announcing that they  had declared the regular quarterly  dividend of three per cent with an additional dividend of two per cent making 5 per cent for tlie quarter.  Now this is not the only good ground  around the camp and if any other  company that are looking for good  property would look over the ground  around this burg they ought to be  able to find as good a dividend payer  as the Nickel Plate.  The  official notice  reads as follows:  HEDLEYGOLDMTNINGOOMPANV  -12 Broadway  New York, Maich 10, 1915.  A quarterly dividend of three per  cent. (3%) and an additional dividend  of two per cent. (2%) has this day  been declared on the outstanding capital stock of this Company payahle  on Wednesday, March 31st, 1915 to  -stockholders of record at 3.00 o'clock  p. in., Monday, March 22nd, 1015.

Le   Chatelier,  who has made a communication to tfie  Academie des Sciences, stating hi' lias  succeeded in nickel-plating aluminum,  which   has not  been  accomplished by  the ordinary methods.     This has prevented  the. extensive, employment of  the '-.metal on   account  of its dull appearance.     This   difficulty   has   been  surmounted by.a preliminary scouring  of.the  aluminum'in a bath  of hyclro-  chlprie acid  eontainfng a certain proportion of iron.    The iron precipitated  on the surface of the  aluninum forms  a kind of network, and when the metal' is  parsed  into  a  nickel   bath  the  nickel gels entangled in this network  and adheres strongly to the aluminum  This  process,   which   is   based   on   a  physical  action,   appears to  solve the  problem which has hitherto  been con  sidered insoluble.  A .single sugar pine tree which, was  cut in trespass in the Stanislaus national forest. California, yielded more  than enough actual lumber to build a  good sized suburban house, and in  settlement tlie governini-nt-h-.is received #09.40. The tree scalled 1S,!������3  board feet and was valued at $5.2.5 per  1000 ft. Not many trees contain  enough lumber to build a two foot  board walk nearly two niileslong, and  this is believed to be tlu* first case on  record in which a single tree felled in  a national forest was valued at almost  $100 on the stump, although national  forest timber is frequently sold at  considerably higher rates.

" Vv ��������� '���������  zette published monthly by the Dominion Department of labor. The  February'Gazette contains the following on Mining:  Coal mining conditions at -Sydney  were slightly unproved, owing, to the  blinking of coal at the collieries which  began in-Decernbei and which will be  continued during the winter months.  Themild weather, while effecting the  consumption of coal*, improved shipments from Sydney,'' this port being  still open at the end of the month.  The blowing in tlie blast furnaces at  Sydney. Mines and: the. resumption of  work in the steel plant there also help-  ep the coal trade. The Broughton  mine was closed down,' over 200 men  being thrown out of employment.  Most of the working men are professional miners and will try to secure  woik at other collieries of thu province. Inverness had a fair month. At  Wcstville about 55,000 tons of coal  weie raised during January.  At Lelhbridge, con I mining was  slack for the time of year, owing to  less traffic on the railways and inactivity in factories. Winter conditions  caused some local demand. At Na-  naimn also the mines .were working  on slack time. The Western Fuel  Company worked twenty days during  Januaiy. The Nanairao Vancouver  Company worked full time bub ������*-itira  very small force of men. At Cumberland the men were working very little  and all but absolutely necessary outside workers were- laid oil". At Extension, tlie mines were working about  two thirds time, and the same was the  case with the Pacific Coast Coal Company at South Wellington.  In metal mining some improvement  was  shown.     The asbestos   mine   in  Quebec    were   more  busily   engaged.  The   Johnson   mine  at Thetl'ord  was  re-openad   aft'-r   being   closed   down  since December 2-lth.    The Bell Ashes  Ios  Company  at the same  place  reopened   their   mill   which   had   been  closed for  about  four  months.     The  mill will lie run day arid night,   which  will give woik to 300employees. Other  mines in'the district wereall working.  At Black Lake also the mines were in  operation.  \i\ the Cobalt region, owing to low  water in the Montreal and Matabit-  cliouan rivers cutting down the power  supply, some of the* mills were forced  to closedown for 25 pur cent of the  time. It was expected that each week  until spring, when the water rises in  the rivers, upwards of 75 to 100 men  would be idle. Commencing with the  first week in January .shipments from  Cobalt del-lined. At Porcupine, conditions weie normal, the mines continuing steady production. Underground  work on the Touyh-Oakes mines at  Kirkland lake, was resumed giving  employment to a number of men.  In British Columbia, there was also  some improvement. The. Granby Company at Phoenix made an advance in  wages of five per cent on January 1st  owing to the improved price of copper.  At the Volcano mines, ten miles from  Grand Forks, machinery has been  placed on the ground and will be. installed in the spring. To treat the ere  it was repotted that a 1,000 ton smelter would be erected. The smelter at  Trail was running during the month  at full time. The mines at Rossland  also were busy.

Liberal members expect that there will  be and the ministers are saying nothing.  "Both sides seem satisfied/ The  Conservatives are declaring that the  want of confidence motion by the Liberal leader yesterday morning justifies an appeal to the people. They  claim that the truce has been foi mal-  ly and officially broken.  "The Liberals say that if the government thought it could win it would  have the election anyway, even if  no amentment bad been offered to  the budget. They say that while the  weru keeping the political truce.the  government had been working upon  a political ambush.

Okanagan this year than for  many years past���������since the wheat-  growing days of long ago. Under  these conditions it is most unfortunate  that the Enderby flouring mill is tied  up in such a way as not to be in a  position to grind this product.  When   the  Enderby   Flouring Mills  were  in   operation,   aud   turning   out  one  of  the   finest   grades   of   flour���������  Moffet's  Best���������some of our dealers in  flour shipped   in from   the Northwest  miils flower  to supply lhe local trade.  Today all the  flour that is sold in Enderby and    the   Valley,  comes   from  Northwest and Manitoba,  and at- Vernon,    Armstrong   and   Enderby,   are  flouring  mills   which  have  been   put  out of business'by the lack of loyalty  on the part of the people to local institutions.      It  requires .something   like  this to bring us to our senses.   Instead  of having  a payroll   in each, of  these  towns by the operation  of those flouring mills*, and at the samp time, a home  market for our wheat, we have neither  payroll,  running Homing mills,   nor a  home market for tin-'wheat.    We will  be   sending*  wheat out of  the Valley  and   bring   Hour  into  it,   with   three  (louring    nulls   in    our   midst,   killed  through   the  lack   of  loyalty   of   our  people.    And still we hear the Government damned for  not doing mure for  agriculture.   _ MX*   QUICKEST REMEDY EVER  SOLD IN HEDLEY  Wo have never sold anything here  in Hedley with the INSTANT action  of the simple mixture of buckthorn  bark, glycerine, etc., known as Adler-  i ka.

Gillespie,  druggist,  lhe annual meeting of the Hedley  Golf Club was held in the Similkameen  Hotel on Tuesday evening last, and  proved to one of the best meetings  yet held by that club. The officers  for the ensuing year were appointed  and other business discussed. The  treasurer's report for the year 191-4  showed tlie finances of the club to be  in a healthy condition. After the  callling of the meeting to order by the  President, Mr. G. P. Jones, the minutes of the previous annual meeting  wen- lead and adopted.

The next business of the meeting  was to di-icuss tlie ! ������.-.<������������������ 1 way of having  tho names of the winners of the Mortal Cup placed thereon and after some  disscussion it was decided that the  placing of a shield with the winners  name thereon should be fastened to  the cup. Mr. Claike was given instructions to order such shield pioper-  ly engraved. Thu subject of giving a  runner up prize also came in foi much  discussion and it was decided that a  small gold medal would be given and  Mr. Claike was also given instructions  to order one for last year which would  be piusenled to Miss Jac-Ksnn.  It was also'decided to socmen modal  whicb would be played formontblv by  the club. The games to be played  as a handicap stroke competition, and  are to be played before -a;- certain  monthly date which will lie. fixed by  the committee.. This was one of the  best moves o the evening as it would  create a much more interest in the  games and would also help veryinat-  ierally in getting of score cards for -  for the handicapping for the Merrill .  Cup. It was left to- the handicap  commit Lee to -arrange the, regulations  for these matches.  It, was also decided to start a junior  membership club and this to im-ludi-  all boy? up lo ' eighteen years of  age who wished to* piny on the link.-.  The fee was fixed at .S2.*IH a year.  This would allow them the use of Unlinks only and would not admit fbeni  to participate in of the senior ntaLches.  The matter of holding the annual  golf dance was gone into but as the  new hall is not yet completed, no ,  definite date was set. A committee  was appointed to take the .matter in  hand and as soon as the new hall is  ready the date will be announced.  Many other questions came up for  disc ussion, but as these under the  rulings of the various committees  they were left for them to look  after.

Theieisa higher motive, than that of  the pocket merely, and it'should be a  stronger one.  At the same time  th.-   business as  poet must be recognized.    .With a food  bbort.-ige staring  it  in   the  face,   the  world is ready toabsoib at good pi ice.-*  all we can produce.  The main object of the campaign is  to make clear the situation.  Tbc-ie is no more reasonable body to  deal with than the farmers. Lay the  facts before them clearly and fully  and they may be relied on to reach a  correct decision.  THE NEED OF  GREATER PRODUCTION  Great Britain has invested more  money in this country than in any  other country in the world outside of  the United Slates. The sum totalis  no less than ������2,800,000,000.. being equal  to $100 for every man. "women and  child.  This money has gone largely to provide railway and other facilities for  carrying on our business. It is loaned  money, and hears (���������>-.-��������� hunched and  twenty millions of dollars interest annually. That interest must be met.  It can be met only by exporting surplus products. There is a ready market for all the farm products we can  produce over and above our own requirements. A twenty per cent increase in farm production will cover  our interest piiynients and maintain  the country's credit.  This is one. answer to the question,  why is it necessary that Canada at  this particular time should increase  the output of the farm ?  It is neither asked nor expected that  the farmer should bear the whole burden. The railways and other organizations engaged in the transportation  of products must bear their share,  The financial institutions of the country must be asked to assist in financ-.  ing the farmer's business as well as  the manufacturer's. The farmers of  almost every country in Europe enjoy  the advantages of rural credits. Si  milar facilities are urgently needed  here.  The need of supplying the farmer  with information that will enable him  to distribute and market his products  to the best advantage, is becoming  more and more urgent. The Canadian Minister of Agriculture recently  put the matter in this form:  "It is not, therefore, only greater  production, but better production and  cheaper production, more accurate  knowledge of markets and better facilities for reaching them. All these  things are tied up together, and it is  to these things that not only farmers  but governments, bankers and transportation men have to address themselves."  A clearer understanding of some of  the handicaps retarding production  will be one of the good results that  must grow out of the present campaign.  But let not the farmer stay his hand  because these and other defects in the  economic system have not yeb been  remedied, Your country needs you,  and needs you now.  There is- no necessity i'or calling  upon the fanner to woik harder or for  longer hours. Neither is it advisable  to dictate to him as to what he should  produce nor bow be should produce it.  The individual farmer must decide for  himself how best to meet Liie demand.  We sec', the question -asked, and  asked too by agricultural journals,  how can the farmer increase the output without putting more acres under  cultivation and employ more laboi ?  That production may to some extent lie increase in labor is clearly indicated. The best strains of seed will  give larger yields than inferior kinds.  A strain suited to the soil and climate  and sown at the right time will give  bettor returns than seed that is not.  Pure seed,- plump seed, seed of stiong  vitality, will increase the yield. These,  and other important principles are not  in widely applied as they might be.  There is an appalling and almost  universal waste in the handling of  liquid and solid manure in this country. Rectify this'and restore to the  soil the elements of fertility now lost  through lack of care, and production  may be increased without any appreciable increase in labor.  If the facts of the case indicate it,  as we believe they do, then the farmer  is warranted in employing more labor,  provided suitable labor can be secured;  be is wairanted in preparing his land  better, sowing his.seed better, and in  this manner doing what he can to  meet the . Empire's, needs. The man  who fails in his duty iii the country's  crisis, will regret it all his days.  Good'Mornlng:!  ''ft    ���������''."

Of course, Austria could make Italy  a pi esent of the Trentino quite comfortably. Because if Germany and  Austria should be licked, Austria  needn't care; and if they win. Austria  could take the Trentino back together  with any Italian or other pickings she  fancied.  The loyalty and patriotism of the  farmer has never been called into  question. He has the opportunity before him to give expression to his  patriotism  by helping  to keep up the  "While Europe is at war; and while  Canada is proving her loyalty both by  protestations and by the despatch of  volunteers,  the people of -the Dominion are not altogether forgetting that  peace is  the important phase of life,"  says the Cleveland Plaindealer. ���������'Peace  will  come,  some  time,  and  will last  longer than war has lasted.     Some of  the European  nations will be crushed  beyond hope of speedy lecovery, and  must labor patiently through  two or  more generations to re-establish themselves on a peace basis.    Bub Canada  will suffer no such  carnality.     She is  now   in  the midst   of war,   pushing  straight ahead with the greater work  of peace.     New   regions  in  the  far  northwest are even now being opened  to settlement.     The men  who are going into these new regions to establish  homes have little thought for Europe's  war.     In the remoteness  of Northern  Alberta  they can not be affected  by  the altering victories and defeats in  Flanders and Poland.    To them the  building  of a comfortable home   for  their children, and the solid establishment of a fresh new agricultural community are matters of far morn importance.    They are looking towards  the future, and decline to be confused  by the noise and clamor of today."

Tlie county is a territorial division  THE  END  OF THE  WORLD.  A'Theory That ,It Will  Come by   Fire  Caused by Friction.  As to the length of time the earth Is  likely to last, the calculations are that  it will, not cease to be active for a good  many millions of years, such activity  not, however,"' necessarily supposing  that life as we know it now will always be possible, the eventuality of a  universal ice age being always a contingency that may occur again, in the  history of the globe.  \Itis interesting to note that in this  connection a Swedish mystic called  Stromberg has declared that tho world  would never know another ice age, but  that.it was now running out its course  to tho end. Its existence, he declared,  would endure as long as fire burned in  the earth's bowels���������that is, until the  whole mass shall have -become solidified. The internal fires, he said, provided the link which maintained the  earth iu the sun's sphere of attraction.  When this attraction shall fail, the  earth, according to the Swede, will  cease"to revolve and will fall away,  only to disappear by fire caused-; by  friction,' ���������thus verifying the .Biblical  prophecy. As, however, tho process of  cooling down entirely will take some  billions of years, the nervous person  will note that there is really no imme  diate   cause   for   alarm.  Pepsin, Saliva and Gastric Juice.  Pepsin, the principal agent in the digestion of food, is a powerful solvent  stored up in the walls of the stomach  and only poured forth when its assistance is needed. When pure, this fluid  is perfectly ucutral, neither acid nor  alkaliue, and appears to be unable to  exert any action without the presence  of an acid. Such acid is supplied iu  the gastric juice, secreted by the gastric follicles covering the coating of  the stomach. The saliva is merely for  the purpose of moistening the food,  thus preparing it for the action of the  pepsiu and gastric fluids.  that the United States derived from  Great Britain, where the counties  correspond to ������. the provinces or di  partments of other- European countries' and in a limited sense to the  -sCate's of'the American Union.- ���������'���������An  Englishman addresses a . letter , to  "Parkinton, Hants," as we addr-c  a, letter to "Columbus, 0.," or "JEi-  mira, N.Y."   -���������' *   "   -  One. state," which derives its usages  from'French���������'and not from English  originals, has no counties at all. ' In  Louisiana these . subdivisions of tho  state are still called parishes,* both-  officially "and in - ordinary,',speech,  though - they are ' now divided into  many real parishes' of the church.  There -are about ��������� 3,000 counties in  the Union, with an average s'ize' of  about 1,000 square miles, but this  average is enormously exceeded in  many instances and is also frequently fallen below. Leaving out certain  great unsettled counties in the west,  the average county would be about  500 square miles in extent.  -In much of the western part of the  country the size of tb/3 county _ is  regulated mathematically. It consists  of sixteen townships, each composed  of thirty-six square miles, making  576 square miles in all. In other  words, each township is six miles  square and each county twenty-four  miles square.  In Iowa there are thirty-nine counties ' that were" formed in this way,  each one of which has exactly 576  square miles. . Such divisions were  possible in the newer west, where  these minor political divisions were  made in advance of settlement.- In  the older'parts of the country the territorial arrangements were largely  accidental.  The largest county in -the United  States is Yavapai county, Ariz., which  has an area of almost 30,000 _ square  miles. Nine states of tho .Union are  each smaller than this county. It  is larger than the whole of West  Virginia and almost as large as South  Carolina.  The sixteen counties of Montana  average a greater size than the state  of  Massachusetts.  Among the other great counties of  the Union are San Bernardino and  San Diego, in California, .which are  not only vast- regions, but contain a  great productive territory; Humboldt  and Lincoln counties, in Nevada,  which are only sparsely populated,  and Lincoln county, N. M"., which  bids .fair in time to have a large  population..  Although the New England states  are small, the average size of the  counties is greater than in most of  the middle, western and southern  states. Worcester county, in-"Massachusetts, is an example of an eastern county that is at the same time  large in area and very populous. It  is larger than the adjoining state of  Rhode Island.  The smallest state in the Union  has the smallest county as well,  Bristol county, E. I., has only twenty-five square miles. At one place  it is not more than two miles in  breadth.
