Over-Sens  Club has been received from   the   Dominion t?f Canada  to itsappeal to provide   tobacco  and cigia-ettes   for   our  brave   men   at the   front*    A total of  ������(51,000 collected  from all parts of the  Empire   in twelve   months  is a result  which I think   we can all be proud of.  I was particularly interested to hear  that such a   large sum has come from  Canada.    I feel  sure,   that   it   was a  very wise, move on  your part, making  arrangements to      supply    Canadian  manufactured   tobacco for the   Canadian troops.  The fact that the Central organization of the Over-Seas Club has administered this large sum of money without deducting anything whatever for  expenses, from the generous subscriptions of residents overseas, is. Iain  sure, one of the contributory causes  to- the . great success of the Over-Seas  Club Tobacco Fund.  Yours sincerely,  .

The  speaker referred to the splendid   manner in which the Coirigan family   had  answered lhe call to arms, and wished  for them a safe, return when the fighting days we're over.'     All  joined  in a  hearty lendering  of "They are jolly  good     fellows"    and,    "Should    auld  acquaintance be forgot." '  In the name of the Soldiers Aid  So, iety, Mis. J. P.

The following from the Nicola News,  published at Mci-ritt, will certainly  bring a smile to our readers when they  see the joko :  "Nicola has sent to the front in  cash, tobacco, and hospital, supplies,  over $1000, which the residents claim  is a record for British Columbia. $17.45  has just been sent to.:'the' "Worid"  Christmas Pudding Fund;"   :,  We dislike very much to put: a  damper on the poor fellow who in the  pride of his editorial ability, boldly  laid hold of pen and dashed off. the  above.

The editor of  the News never heard  of Hedley Ladies Sewing Circle, so of  course   he is not to  blame.     But the  ladies of Hedley have sent to the fr'ont  more, far more than  Nicola's  proud  record  dares to  claim, and  the ladies  have never evenjthoiight of claiming a  record.    And as far as plum duff is  concerned,   they   sent   a   Christmas  hamper containing a plum   pudding  and  numerous other  things to  every  Hedley enlisted man whether in Canada or   across   the pbrid.     The   last  venture of the ladies netted over $150,  all of which went to get the hamp&rs  for the boys.   And then there is the  little matter of machine guns.

Editor  Announcement of  Pruning Schools  The eye of the Gorman  Empire is on Canada in case of  victory. To live under German  rule will be the fate of every  resident of this Dominion if the-  Allies are defeated, and that,  rule will be based on an inplac-  able hatred for England. In  recruiting Canada is not lighting England's battles only, she  is fighting for the salvation of  her own firesides���������Victorian.  THE DAY  The war situation in Europe  is favorable to the Allies everywhere except in Turkey and the  Balkans. There the Teutons  are prevailing both in Avar and  in diplomacy. Turkey and Bulgaria wore nominally neutral  when, the war bega:\ They are  both fighting on the side of  Germany. Greece arid Rum-  mania, were neutral, both inclined to the Allies, and both at  one time pledged to fight, on  their side. Now, the position of  both is dubious. A largo part  of Serbia has been swept by the  Teuton armies, which are still  advancing. The Allies have  fought with little success in the  Dardanelles, and are only beginning to light in the Balkans.  Yet Mr. Bonar Law says that  the situation pleases him better  than it has for some time   past.  The fact   is   that   the   great  Allied Powers now know pretty  -well the strength and   capacity  of the enemy.    They have stopped him in Flanders and France.  They have held him up in  Russia.    They are forcing him back  in the South.    They have   captured his colonies.    They   have  driven him from the sea.   They  have distroyed one-third of his  army, while their own  steadily  increases.    Therefore, they face  the hard and anxious  situation  in Southeastern   Europe   with  confidence in the ultimate result.  They know that   the   Germans  will sooner or later Have to dig  themselves in on   this   field   as  they have elsewhere.    The Central Powers and Bulgaria have  a mighty army in Southeastern  Europe.   But they must reckon  with powers which can and will  produce     larger    and     better  armies.    Reverses may happen  before the Allies can meet   the  Teutons on equal terms in   the  Balkans,   as   they   now   meet  them   in   France   and   Russia.  But the time will arrive.���������News  Advertiser.  In Ii)U, the first year Pruning  Schools were opened, 2"> were held, and  in ]J)15 the number increased to +7.  As those schools proved to be very  hcn.ilicial to th������) fruit-growers, lhe  Department has decided to oficr them  again. Some requests have already  been made, and as there will undoubtedly bo a big demand for them, it is  hoped that applications will be placed  as .soon as possible.  The Department of Agriculture will  provide a competent instiuetoi-, and  his expenses. The. local administration of the pruning schools will- be  placed in the hands "i" a responsible  local body,'such as'the Farmers' Institute, the Fruit Growers' .Association,  or the board of , Trade, who will be  i-e.spoiiaible for' the guarantee of a.  minimum of eight pupils, (but not  more than twelve), with the proper  qualifications/at a fee of one dollar  each, to take ten lessons of three hours  a lesson, the school extending fiver  five days. Where the number of  pupils in a district justifies, two pruning schools   may be  arranged   for, in  which the minimum guarantee will be  sixteen pupils, and not over twenty-  four. The local organization wilbalso  provide an orchard or orchards, where  tin* instructor may hold the pruning  clas.-es, and a hall or room iu which  the lectin es may be held.  Beside the actual practice in the  orchard, of which the course will consist chiefly, where tho pupils will  prune trees under- the supetvision of  tbe instructor, there will be lectures  on the theory of pruning, which will  include talks on pruning as related to  the formation of fruit buds, and to tbe  plant growth, also the subject of top-  grafting undesirable varieties will he  dealt with, along with many other-  points of interest.  The pupils will provide their, own  pruning tools, the necessary tools being a pair of pruning shears, a saw,  and a pocket whetstone. A pruning  pole'and a light, ladder may also be  necessary for large trees.  The Department expects that the  instructor will be met on his arrival  by some responsible person, who can  provide him with all the necessary  information, so as to get the school  under way.without loss of time.

His letter will be  found in   this paper   telling all  Hill Innis Writes  Interesting Letter  France, Oct. 31,1015  Dear Ones at Home:  ] will try and write a few lines tonight.  As this i.s Hallowe'en niglit some of  the boys are ci-lelirating it by having  a little dance, hut I did not go to it as  I had nothing hut my heavy hob-nail  shoes, I was busy having a little  game of cards.  We have been having a lot of rain  lately   so of course that means   mud.  I just had a letter from Jim tonight,  ho w.-is getting really to go to the  const for a, .vhort time. I am enclosing a piece of the inner tube of the  pair of wheels that are. on the German  aeroplane that I saw fall the other  day. It glides along for along way*  before it lights. The fellow tried to  make the German trenches but the infantry turned loose with their rifles.  The pilot was killed and his two assistants, weie made prisoners, but the  Germans evened up that night. They  always keep shooting and dropping  bombs around ' where the aeroplanes  fall. They expect a crowd will gather and there are always a few who will  venture.    The first   night there   were  two killed and a couple wounded.  They have taken it all apart and nre'  going to use some of the best parts.  There is very little difference between  these tires and auto tires, a little larger than the Ford,  I do not live in the trenches now,  but if there is a big attack on, [ will  have to go then, at leie-t, if they call  on me to go and act as stretcher  bearer.  You ought to'see a couple ofshell-  nuses T got. ��������� Another lad and I went  out one morning in a fog, as we could  go closer to Che 'German lines than we  could on a bright day. We each picked up a couple of bras.--, ones. We  would have got more but the fog  raised and'we had-to bent it.  The box of apples from the girls  (sisters in Winnipeg) arrived last  night and I ate two before I went to  bed, also got a letter from Ella written on Sept. 0th. so vou see our letters  i' *  generally turn up some time. I got  lhe first package a few days ago, came  through in first class shape.  , I wish someone would send' me a  copy of the "Gazette" with that letter  in, There has been .-evei-al write and  tell nre what a fine letter it was.  I saw Hairy Etches yesterday in  front of the diessing station so of  course I thought that he was wounded  I stopped to see him but he was only  thereto get his teeth fixed. There is  a dentist with each Field ambulance  as it saves sending the men down to  the Base.  I have only seen the O. M. R's one  Sunday when they came over first.  They are miles away from us now, hut  arc still fighting on the same front.  You asked me how I was a private  again when 1 left Shorncliffe the draft  that I came oyer with did not call for  a corporal, so I either had to stay  to stay where I was or come as a private, so sooner than stay there, any  longer, I gave up my stripes and came  over, and have not been sorry for  coming altho' I had a good positron  there, but I knew I never would be  contented until T came over and had a  little touch of the real thing, so I  guess T will have it before spring.  T have not heard from Bob for weeks,  so am beginning to think he is over  here some place. It takes longer to  locate anyone here, as he will be reinforcing some battalions and it is  hard to say which one.  Your loving son and brother-,  HILL  Pte. J. H.
