Fresh Fish on  sale   every   Thursday.  R. J. EDMOND, Prop.  The following letter was received'  this week by Mrs. W. McLean from  Bert Schubert, son of J. Schubert of  Tulanreen City:  No. 443,850, 54th Battalion, C. E. F.,  Machine Gun Section, Bramshoj*t  Camp, Hants, England.  My Dear Mrs. McLean: A great  many times I have thought of writing  to you, and on one occasion started,  but always something seemed to turn  up to upset my plans. Just a year ago  since Horner and I used to have great  times together, anel as it seems all  good times are over for the present I  often think e^f those we used to  have.  Things aro always very much the  same around here just now, but I  have hael a great many experiences  since I last saw you.  The machine gun section, which I  am now in is very interesting, and as  I always took a great interest in the  mechanism of guns anr getting along  very well so far and will probably atay  in that section, although they are always switching us around.  A week ago Sunday, Tom Ledue, a  cousin of mine from Armstrong, now  with the second C. M. R. iu France,  paid me a visit and I obtained a pass  for twenty-four hours, and we went  to London, anel I enjoyed it very  much.  Tom is captain now, and the English  officers looked rather hard at us traveling   together,   as   it is against the  rules in their- army for- an officer to go  around with a private, hut he said  he would rather be wjth methan  most English officers he had-ever'met.'  He has some great stories to tell of the  light and he has seen quite a-good deal  of it too. .  I have heard of quite a number of  boys that I used to know who are in  France now, and quite a few that I  used to go to schoeil with have lost  their lives.-there. ������������������.- -'���������.-.;.-*���������.;   ;���������-���������-���������   .  I do not kno,w just when we are  going over,' but we are all anxious to  get there now. There is no doubt lots  of time because-it isn't going to end in  a hurry: My opinion is- based' on the  verdict of hundreds of wounded hoys  in one of the biggest hospitals in  England.; I was. in there for seven  weeks, and every day I used to go down  into the wards where Jhey were and  talk to them, especially the Canadian  boys, and not one of them had the  idea that the war- would end in any  early period.  We have not heaid from Frank  Dollamore. since he went over there  some time ago, but I suppose the  Hedley people have heard of them.  Blair Mills and Yorkie were with them.  The Hedley boys have had rather  hard luck since coming over here, so  far us sickness was concerned; but we  are all on the board again and at present all right. The lust I saw of Vans  he showed me a very bad hand and  shortly afterwards was sent to the  hospital. The doctors did not seem to  know what was the. mutter. I think  it was a form of tubercular trouble.  It would surprise you what a number of the boys have contracted since  coming to the wet climate.  The air raids are the principle form  of excitement in Englstid just now.  It is pretty in London to see the big  search lights searching for Germans  in the clouds.   When I was at Alder-  shot they came pretty close one night  arid dropped several bombs a short  distance from the camp, but did not  manage to get there, as it is protected  pretty well. It is one of the "largest  camps in England find a regular barracks in times, of peace. The, nurses  were sure very nice to me at that hospital. I was the only Canadian in the  ward that I was in.  When you write to Myrtle I wish to  be remem tiered to her. And I would  like if you ever-write to me ,you will-  give me Homer's address. Will write  to Mr. McLean some day when I have  something interesting to tell him.  Very''often I think Of the good times  I irsed to have in your house and 1  hope some time I will come in again  anel maybe have a game of ruin.  Kindest regards to .yourself and Mr.  McLean.    Always your friend,  Bert Schubert.  Provincial Forestry  Advices to the minister of lands from  the southern interior of the province  niiu'fc the beginning of the fire season,  small fires being reported from the  Cranbrook, Nelson and Vernon forest  districts. In the first named distr-iot  the late spring is retarding the growth  of vegetation so essential as a check  upon fires running along the ground  and burning the car-pet of pine needles,  twigs, dry leaves, etc. A hot and dry  wind from the south is drying up the  vegetation in the Okanagan arrd Similkameen districts, while hot weather-  prevails throughout the Vernon district generally. Farmers and settlers  are reminded that permits are required  for all fires set from the beginning of  May, for which application should be  made to the local fire wardens.  Campers, sportsmen and travelers are  urged Lo exercise every care in extin-  ation of all'sections of the community  is desired, in order that damage to  property mav he avoided. It is worthy  erf mention that in 1915, 305 fires out  of a total of 1031 outbreaks,'were  traced to campers and travelers, while  267 were caused hy land clearing operations. Damage by fires .-to the timber in 1915 amounted to $109,000, and  other- property, viz., logging equipment, farm Iioum-s and buildings, etc.,  $5S,000. Thi!'ma?ority eif all fires in  1915 were, as usual, elm- to human .  agency, and were, therefore, preventable. Particularly this season, when  the empire is engaged in a vast and  wealth destroying war on a scale  hitherto unthoi'ight of; it is the duty of  every citizen to assist in preserving  our resources from avoidable destruction.  Auto Accident.  Sunday afternoon, about four miles  from Prince tern, an arrto accident occurred which fortunateld did not result in serious injury to any of the  occupants of the car'. The party comprised Max and Mrs. Wilson, Mrs.  Houston, Miss Blake and P. Y. Smith,  with the latter at the wheel. On the  hill '.they met Homer Wells with a  party coming towards Heelley. In  passing Smith's car got too near the  edge of the embankment and went  over several times, landing right side  up in the Similkameen river with the  driver aitting on the back of the seat.  The pother occupants of the car were  bruised and badly shaken up. The  Wells car went into the bank on the  upper side. One of the occupants was  slightly injured.  It is about tinie the baseball boys  were rounding up the nine for the  season.    L.  Oty,   the   new G. N.

The undersigned is pleased'to  announce to '.subscribers, of Tlie  -Hedley Gazette that with this  issue the paper passes into the  -.hands ..of Mr. James W.Crier,  Aviid is now sole proprietor and  ���������will manage and edit it, Mr.  Grier scarcely needs any introduction to the subscribers of  any ''paper' in the interior of  British Columbia, and, particularly, those where mining is in  progress, for he has been iden-  -.tifted.' with mining in the interior of the province for the  past twenty-five years.  His connection with The Gazette, coming as it does when  there is every evidence of a revival in mining, is propitious.  He has always stood for what  is legitimate and proper in the  conduct of publicity connected  with the mining industry, and  the promoter of fake schemes  had little to hope from him and  much to fear. It is therefore  ���������with special pleasure that we  introduce him as the new proprietor and publisher of The  Hedley Gazette, and as a citizen  he will bear his share.  To make a town or a mining  camp prosperous it is necessary  that every one should do his or  her part. The prosperity of a  community is dependent upon  the efforts of all, and the local  publisher requires the'cooperation of citizens and particularly those in business. In those  days when the mail order houses  are cutting in upon the business  of the local dealers it is all the  more necessary that the people  of every community stand together and endeavor to do their  part.  From a news item which apr  peared in last issue it might be  inferred that the undersigned is  still connected with the ownership of The Hedley Gazette, but  such is not the case and a wrong  impression, w*as given of an unimportant circumstance connected with the transfer from  , the late publisher to the present  owner. The writer bespeaks  for Mr. Grier the hearty cooperation and support of the  people of Hedley and district,  knowing as he does that it will  be fully deserved.  A. Megraw.  In politics, the paper will be  independent. We are not under any obligations to the politicians, "neither are the politicians under any obligations to  us. If em aspirant for political  honors wishes to advertise his  wares he can purchase space in  the .columns of The Hedley Gazette at the regular advertising  rate oi: 10 cents per line, if he  writes the dope.

Specialize on particular lines,  display and advertise them. It  will pay. Any one can sell people  what they know they want, but  the live advertiser sells people  goods they didn't know they  wanted. Particularize in advertising; generalities are convenient modes of expression for  gossips and politicians.  **������  Judging from the annual report of the Hedley Gold Mining  company, published last issue,  this should be a' good camp in  which to develop a newspaper  claim.  It is said that there was  "plugging" at the by-elections  in Vancouver and Victoria.

Hedley Branch  Capitai and Surplus $7,884,000,  C. P. DALTON, Manage  This publisher of  the Gazette  does not believe that he can live  up to  the  many virtues which  Major    Megraw   attributes   to  him, so it would be advisable to  Avait and judge for  yourselves.  A newspaper is the same as any  other     cold-blooded     business  proposition in  which success is  the  natural   result   of   a  man  being just to himself.  We have  no    illusions    about    "uplifts,"  "purity in politics," etc.  We are  not here to give anything away,  but to sell our wares at a profit  and.   buy   your  wares,   paying  one hundred cents on the dollar,  and   the    one    hundred   cents  promptly  paid is   the   driving  force behind all business energy.  It appears to be generally accepted    that    a     publisher   to  make both ends meet must become  a   pest   by  continuously  soliciting job  printing,  advertising and  subscriptions.    You  don't   expect   your   hardware;  dry goods, or. grocery merchant  to camp on your trail, nor is the  publisher going to do  so.    The  Gazette has an up-to-the-minute  job printing, plant, has advertising   space   for   sale,   and is  anxious to add to the names on  the subscription list, but we do  not propose  to  call every day  and  tell you  how to run your  business.   If you  favor us with  your patronage we will do our  utmost  to give  you  value for  the money invested.  We would  be pleased to  have news items  until we become accustomed to  the scenery and those  decorating  it.    It is  the  intention to  move the plant this  week into  the Lyons block, when  a telephone  will  be  hitched  on and  grievances can be fired in without the trouble and inconvenience of a personal mix-up.   Until  the  paper is settled in new  quarters don't expect too much  then there will  be less danger  of disappointment. Don't shoot,  the performer is doing his best.  A feature of the war- that is disquieting to many people in Camilla, and the  operation of which can lie perceived in  Hope as well as elsewhere, is that as  young and middle aged Canadians,  both from the .Mother Country and  native born, join the colors, their positions in commerce and industry are  taken by aliens, often by the subjects  of enemy powers.'  It might have been well if, at the  beginning of tint war, the Dominion  government hael tiiken stock of the  whole manhood of the country, decided  how many were needed to continue  the commercial anil industrial life of  the country and sent, by ballot or  either-wise, all the rest to go to the  front or into training. But that would  have involved a degree of paternalism  of which British-people have always  been most impatient. They are quicker  than any others to volunteer but more  stubborn also in resisting compulsion.  Great preparation .are being made  in every province for., finding employment for the soldiers when they return. These must include the discharge eif aliens, especially enemy  aliens, from employment to nrake  room for our own. This also will involve paternalism in the form eif inter-,  ference with the freedom of employees.  But during and after the war we must  learn to accept restrictions of individual freedom when resulting benefit  to all is clearly established. Autocratically; geiverned noun tries have a great  advantage-overeieniocracies in war be-  ca use they can order the. whole life.of-  the peeiple to .conform to;a system-  adopted for war. The free peoples  must offset that advantage by conferring more authority, on our rulers,-  remembering that they do not claim'  authority from the Almighty but are  our rulers and'repr'esentatives by our  own choice.���������West Yale Review.

The appeal from the trenches is in-  sistant: "Smokes! Smokes! Send us  Smokes !" is the;the cry that is always  to be heard in every letter that reaches  the Overseas Club from the front, Tobacco is one of the few things that  gives men happiness during the weary  days, weeks and months of waiting.  It is a source of real companionship.  By sending tobacco to the troops  through Canada's Tobacco Fund, instead of in your -own way,-you derive  remarkable advantages. For every  quarter you subscribe a lad at the  front will receive 50 good Canadian  Cigarettes, one fifth of a pound of Can  manufactured Tobacco, a packet of  matches and a postcard on which he  may thank the- donor. This parcel, if  brought in a shop and posted in the  ordinary way would cost nearly a denial-. So you obtain four times the  value of your quarter by sending it to  Canada's Tobacco Fund.

A street foreman on the coast,Jwhen  asked by a young man for a raise,  told him'he didn't deserve a raise because he had ne>t done any work at all  during the year. He proved his assertion like this: Ea.ch year has305 days.  You sleep eight hours each day, which  equals 122 days. This leaves 243 days.  You rest eight hours each day, which  equals 122 days. Tqis leaves 121 days.  There are 52 Sundays that you do not  work, or 52 days. This leaves you 69  days. You have one half day off each  Saturday, or 20 days. This leaves 43  days.
