EDMOND, Prop.  j>  In the Lillooet country within the  hist couple ,of weeks has been located  a gold quartz prospect from which the  highe.-t of five samples taken from the  ledge has assayed at over $1S0 a ton.  The find was made by W. Guttridge  and another prospector. Mr. Gultridge  is an old timei in the province, having  .B.'icJ".?-'.? TrVU.I i'-Vr *)('���������% Tfiidson Bay Co.  on the Peace and Mackenzie rivers in  1S93. Since that time he has ruined in  Alaska, and was in the Kootunays in  the early times. Last summer he was  prospecting in'theTeslin Lake country  in Southern Alaska. It is decl.-u-ad"  the ledge was previously discovered  and partly" worked by a party of  Americans who, however, disappeared  in the vortex of the Civil War to  which they returned. A Hudson Bay  trader shared this knowledge with  them of the. location, and recently  Guttridge and the other prospector received the benefit of it. It is describ  ed as 11 contact vein four feet wide, of  tnlcon schist and quartisite, with a 35  degree dip, striking northeast and well  in on the mountain summit.���������Pioneer.  Hedley Scouts Have  New- Scoutmaster  An important strike was made in  the 900-foot level of the Payne mine  near Sandon, B. C, according to a report received yesterday from A. McQueen of Kaslo, assessor of the district. News of the discovery came  from the foreman of the mine by telephone to W. E. Zwicky, general manager of the Payne company, at Kaslo.  The report states that the exposure  was made in a 25-foot drift from the  crosscut tunnel, where two feeb of  high-grade lead-silver-zinc were opened. It is said the formation is similar  to that in the old upper workings of  the mine,which produced more than  ������1,000,000   net a number of years ago.  The Payne mine is a pioneer property of the Sandon region, and several months irgo the company completed  a long lower crosscut tunnel, from  which 1111 upraise has been run to connect with the old workings. The-management plans to crosscut to tho ore  body every 120 feet in the upraise, and  the strike on the 900-foot level is the  first result of this plau of development.���������Miner.

Jledley Scout--, have been active during the past two weeks and have succeeded . in rc-organizing under the  -most propil ious/circuruitances*'.  Scoutmaster Stanton met with them  lust week and ".hey appointed a com  mittee of husim-ss men, consisting of  Messrs. G. P. Jones, Dr. M. D. McEwen  II. .Tones, P. ^>. Gillespie and A. B.  Stanley. A coi,filiation followed and  the name of 'lr. Thomas Porteous  was mentionecl-J'or Scoiitmnstci :  When seen Mr. Porteous consented  to act and was "present at the meeting  Tuesdav evening. Twelve Scouts  were present,"1 ���������including four Tender-  feet. These latle.r.have given evidence  of being able, to pass their examination  at I lie next meeting and all will then  be on the levelbf Scouts.  At the incHi'-'jng Tuesday Mr. Porte"  ous took oyer;,the command of the  hoys and put them through some preliminary drill.'.which will be of great  benefit to the boys in their 'future  work. The ruiw Scoutmaster has the  respect and will soon have the confidence-of each'- of the boys and weex  pect great thi'hgs from the boys as the  week's roll on.- With a Scout'master  of the splendid calibre of Mr. Porteous,  with the. use of the Opera House, for  drilling and athletic work, with tin-  support of the people of Hedley,. we  look for the Boy Scouts of Hedley to  become a power for the good of every  boy in the district,   who really wishes  tl.7V  c!hi*-l"*^si,'  Following are the officers and mem  hers of the local association:  Hon.

Sees Chance For  B. C. Trappers  In a recent article, A. B. Shubert,  Inc., Chiciigoj the largost house in the  world, dealing in raw furs-, states that  the reasons underlying the present  great demand for furs is the enormous  increased purchasing power of the  American people. Furs are more fashionable than ever, he says, and the  demand of the dress and garment makers far exceeds the anticipated demands of the cutlers of fur trimmers,  whose orders are not for yards, as formerly, but. for miles, of all grades of  every species of furs. The extraordinary demand for the manufactured  o-oods 'created a big demand for raw  furs, and stocks in the hands of the  raw fur dealers are practically closed  out. This condition of affairs will unquestionably create a big demand for  the November and December fresh-  caught goods, and no doubt make  trapping in British Columbia a very  profitable occupation.���������Pioneer,  Coll' Club, Merrill  Cup Competition  Just before the first snow arrived a  very successful Golf Season was closed  with the. final match I'm-the Merrill  Cup Competition. Mr,' P. Murray ear  rying off the honors:  To,,.lhose who have followed tne  game closely during the competition  lhe result, was in doubt to the last.  Being'a handicap competition it was  indeep giatifying to. note that a  scratch man won in the final honor  .after a close and hard light. Mr. P.  Murray won the. final match from Mr.  H. D. Barnes, 2 up and 1 to play.  The match was interesting from  the start. The first round' gave Mr.  Barnes 1 hole to the good. In the  second round Barnes won the first  hole, tied the next three holes. The  game now stood Barnes 2 up with 5 t<>  play. This, was enough for Murray  and with ���������������omo brilliant play he captured the next four holes in exactly 17  strokes.    .  Mr. Barnes being the runner-up in  the competition cariies nil the Club  Runner-up Medal for 1015.  The following look part, in the corii-  p-tition:-TI. D. Barnes; C. P. Dalton;  'W.J. On mack; G.

Killing of Miss Edith Cavell  She'd     harbored   British,     Belgians,  French;  She'll even helped them to escape.  Her murderers said.  To join their colors, man their trench,  Strike Germans dead.  For this   great, trait'rous wrong they  tried her.  She only helped, take note, her side  In its sore strait.  She was a nurse,   ah, woe betide  her!  She'd earned their hate.  And so   they sentenced her   to death,  "Because she'd helped," they said, "in  war."  She was no spy.  She'd    loved     her   own   with   every  breath;  Now she must die!  They killed her in a garden, boys.  A kindly, gentle woman, boys,  She was alone!  Her life soon ended, all her joys  Like wild birds flown.  They bound a scarf about her eyes:  Her gentle, kindly, patient eyes:  Seven were there  To do that maid to shameful death.  To kill, to scare!  She came from an adjoining place.  By vilest German murderers led.  Ah, she was pale!  Yeb   brave her heart   and   sweet   her  fiice;  Bul.flcsh did fail  Her limbs gave way,  she, fainting fell  Before   those    damned     and    savage  brutes,  Their leader, then, a fiend of Hell.  Killed with his gunl  Are murderers, now, to rule this earth?  To kill our mothers, sisters, wives.  Destroy our race?  Of manhood mongst us is there dearth?  A sorry case!  For every drop  in that girl's veins,  Up, Men 1 and kill! kill!.kill 1  That German horde,  Till Right and   Justico hold the reins;  Help us O Lord !��������� Frank Hotjohtok.  Bob McCurdy Recalls  Greatest Battle of War  The crowd which turned out Saturday evening to the smoker iu the  Opera House while.'not as large as it  should have been, was still a- very  satisfactory turn-out and the program  wa.i ihoioughly enjoyed by everyone'  p resell I, *  Needless- to say the biggest and at  the same time, the most intere.-ting  item on the program vvas the address  by Boli McCurdy. This young man,  iv-pi'iidiiig to the. applause. '-which  greeted his name, vvln-n called . upon, ���������  liegaii ut the. beginning and told the  story of his experience as a soldier of  lhe Empire, right from' the lime he  lei 1 England until he returned home"  anil V\ en mentioned   his   recption   at  Kereuieos and Hedlev.'  - ���������  I-  The story itself is very interesting,  nut when 1 ceiled as only a participant  and eye-witness can recall each varying plia.-c, each new expel lenc'e, lhe  la It- gathers inieresl as it proceeds and  at the climax one is spell-bound, inier-  e.-ted, one sees the trench-scarred  liatlle ground, one hears the shriek of .  ..hells, all feel a two-fold pily, first for  the boy who went- away and lost an  eye, and second i'or the boy, the same  ooy, who would go back' if he could to  stand once again with his hero chums  of lhe gi-rtat charge, lo share their perils aud with them to give��������� the other  eye, or if need be, his life, in defense  of lhe Empire which he loves and  which if the _ greatest Empire in the  world-because it can boast of he'ro-  patriiits, men who are maile "ol the*  stuff lhat BobMcCuidy is made of,  men who .are eager to volunteer for  sei vice, men who feel il a disgrace to  be unable to fight the battles of the  flag they call their own.  No dispatches ever described the  taking of the trenches as Bob can tell  it. No writer could convey the sights  and scenes as he can. Each time he  tells it he lives again the days, the  hours and the minutes of his brief experiences in the service of his country.  Had he not been hit, had he remained  and come through all the war, he  would have been an officer vviihout  a shadow of doubt. But as it is his  lol is harder far than those his brave  companions who today are bearing the  fatigue and suffering the wound.-, of  this tenible war. because he cannot  go back to share il with them, and to  know and feel his value to the. Empire.  Prolonged applause followed his address and the rest of the program,'excellent though it was, was of secondary consideration to the feelings  aroused by the plain utterances of this  hero-patriot.  S. E. Hamilton in a humorous sketch  with well   waxed  moustache   showed  the Kaiser   vainly   trying to get   into  telephonic   communication   with   his    ���������  ally at Vienna.  Jim Murdock, Joe Brown, Tommy  Willey and others rounded out a substantial program and.with the able  assistance of the: band made the event  one of the most successful of the  scries.  Bob Lockhart and Billy Simonds  who left the other day for a short  hunting trip were lucky enough to  each get a big buck. They returned  to town yesterday and each finds he  has a large circle of intimate friends,  Of course these two were exceptionally large specimens of tho deer family  and maybe could be induced to feed  the multitude.

".-.-'���������  A glance   at the   list of   contents of  the November issue of Rod and Gun in  Canada   magazine indicates   that this  number is of   general   interest to   the  outdoor lover and  sportsman, while a.  reading   of  the number  justifies   the  first   impression.    "Big Alex and the  Portage of   Death"   is a Hudson   Bay  story hy   R. J. Fraser of   pathetic  interest, concerning a.veritable "portage  of death" which was  negotiated by an  unfortunate  band of Indians, the victims of  a   factor's    cruelty.    "Martin  and the Mortgage" is another of H. C.  Haddon's   stories and has   to do with  the capture of a den of black fox puppies.    "How   Saunders     caught    the  Game Hog" is a story of deer hunting  by camera   vs* deer hunting   by   gun,  written and illustrated by F. V. Williams.

Tomorrow 1 am going to lake  the thiid di'gree in the "suicide club",  with a ten days course in the bomb  throwers. Everyone in the regiment  must take a course in theni now so  apparently it has come my turn. Since  coming back we have had it very calm  in the fighting line. Nothing like the  last days-you and I had and the trenches have, been much better than l.hey  vvei e theie. The boys- tell me thai  with the exception of a few days  rijdil after that they have, had it easy  in the lighting line but lots of work  parties aL times.  1 had a line from Willie MeEvvan  lust night reminding me of .the anniversary of our Hope mountain crip  and saying you' were visiting him.  Hedley seems to be doing her pari  nobly in men, guns aud money and  apparently Keiemeos is still contributing. Was biiLh glad and sorry to  hear that Sam had joined up.

Sometimes I rather wish-he-would'try  it just to break the monotony.  I saw Jack Craig at Shornclift'e before I left. He. looked pretty tough,  got-it a deal harder than he thought I  guess. Havvkes was there also and  expected to be coming out again soon.  Davey Jones and Bristo aud the old  hunch are much the same. Rankin  had the misfortune the other day or  night rather in opening a can of hully  beef, to let his knife, slip and it caught  him in the eye. He was sent to the  hospital but I have not heard whether  it was serious or not. Old ''Rusty"  Bob Hogg is .sure looking his best  never saw hiin look better and the  way he. can pound the big drum isn't  slow. Etches had an attack of La  Grippe but seems to ho pretty well all  right again.  Old Jack O'Neil is looking pretty  tough with bad feet and boils on his  neck. He has grown old but they  have got him a good job now, looking  after the oflicers horses, so it is hot so  had for him. He is still able to peddle  the hot.air and has it all planned how  he will spend the time after the war.  Yon will have the pleasure of keeping  him six months at least.

REMEMBER!  The news came to Australia, of battles nobly won,  And on the Shores of Islam, iminoi tal deeds were done;  Australia has made history, of which we speak with pride,  And the Southern Cross is waving now  where our soldiers brave have died.  Tho' many a chair is vacant, and many a heart is sad,  And many a lassie's mourning her bormie soldier lad;  We know they did their duty, the call was not in vain  That came from the dear old Motherland across the ocean main.  The first step on fame's ladder, was gained by our lads in blue,  When the Sydney laid the Emdun low and saved the transports too.  The Lion Cubs have shown their breed on a sorely stricken field,  For never will our Starry Flag to the. Turkish Crosent yield.  And when the strife is over and our boys come home again,  There's a spot inour hearts for the absent ones, that we always will maintain.  We can't forget the orphans, and the widowed mothers left.  And those that sent their only sons���������how sadly they're bereft.  It is this country's duty, and we should see it is made plain,  To guard from want our Soldier Boys who were strikeu and nob slain.  We know how well they did their share, and made Australia's fame;  The wolf of want they should never see, if our people play the game.  We must all do our best for our gallant lads, the rich and poor alike,  And when the iron's red, dear friends, that is the time to strike.  So hand your contributions in, be it penny or a pound,  There is a time to do your best, THAT time has now come round.  ���������HARRY HOWE, Brunswick ~^:^ w-xr-r-r?  THE HEDLEY GAZETTE, NOV. 11.

These men have not given up their daily work to go  to a far distant college and study for three or. four years the  scientific side of mining. They could not possibly afford to  do so, for the}r were in ' many cases, men of thirty or forty  yes, even fifty years of age, with family ties, they-had wives  and children to support, how then, did they get their scientific training? You may perhaps think that these men had an  uncommon ability for drawing knowledge from their practical exj^erience, but if you will reflect a few minutes on the  calculations that a man ' must be able to make to pass even  the lower Government examinations, you will readily admit  that a lifetime of practical experience, without instruction of.  some kind along the lines of mathematics and mechanics,  would not take you very far up the ladder of which lhe different Government examinations arc the rungs.  The way these men qualified for better positions  was by studying the science of mining in spare time, an hour  or two each night, and they have made good, why should  you not do the same? Why not let the International Correspondence Schools help you to shorter hours, lighter work  and more pay ?  Perhaps you think that you have not enough education to begin the study of Mining engineering, this is not the  case, the courses of study taught by the Scran ton Schools aro  so arranged that you can commence with addition, subtraction, multiplication and division should that be necessary,  and go along gradually into mensuration, which teaches you  to calculate the areas of piston heads, cross sectiQns of pipes,  etc., which you must know in calculating horsepower, the  amount of water, air or sludge that a pump of a given size  will deliver under certain conditions, and so on from subject  to subject till you graduate ���������    ���������  Methods of working mines under different conditions  mine gases, geology, assaying, mine and mineral land surveying, 'prospecting, and all other matters allied to the Mining  Engineering profession are fully covered in the most logical  order, each subject is a step from the one before to the one  ahead, and each prepares the   student well for the next step  coming.  4>a  Get "More Money" for your "Lyres:  MOSKRAT, FOXES.
