At the instance of the chairman, several citizens- briefly expressed' their views to  the. effect that it was no question 'of  generosity, but .our simple duty-.to  take the matter up at once and contribute liberally to .this fund. -  - In his initial address and in reply to  questions of those present, Mr. Brown  e'xpl'ained that the. hioney of the fund  were^to.be devoted exclusively -to-the  TTR? j?

Mr. Brown further pointed out the  necessity of a general organization for  the whole of Canada, owing to the  ability of some communities (such as  our own) to collect more than they  j locally need. .Funds locally, raised  ~may^6e^-rrnTHnrte^"to:������he*TIonornfy'  Treasurer-at Ottawa or placed to the  credit of the Canadian Patriotic Fund  at the local bank. When the total  amount'required for the relief of the  families of any given district has been  carefully worked out, the Honorary  Treasuier will then remit to the local  treasurer the amount required.

The meeting was made up of 19 men  and 13 women all of whom were desirous of doing everything possible to  help in the. work. It was decided  to hold a concert on Thursday, the 1st  October to be followed with a dance  and refreshments. A collection will  be taken, at the. door; the minimum  ambuntto be 50 cents, with no limit on  the other end. Subscription lists will  also be started, so that all who cannot  attend the concert will be able to subscribe in this' way.; The funds thus  raised will be put into the general  fund of the province.

To the ordinal y layman a statement  of the military-' units deployed in any  locality conveys pnljr:>the haziest conception of the numbers of troops en^  gaged. The numerical btrength of  the various units in^most of the Continental armies-is as follows:  A regiment at full.fighting strength  numbers about 3,300 ,rnen, under the  -command -"of <V-co&"nel.~ Three ���������^\tch>"^*^0f^1*ion*Norr1^  regimants .formta- brigade   approximately 10,000 strong, commanded by  a major-general.':TwoT brigades constitute a division -of   20,000 men,  in  charge 'of a lieutenant-general.   Two  divisions make up an army corps numbering 40,000  men,  commanded by a  general.and  three such   corps, fully  equipped, form an>���������ihdependent army  which includes artillery;.cavalry, com-J  missary engineers and .medical field"  force, 'aggregating 120,000 men. i  While there are*some minor variations between the units in the armies  of the allies, the above 'figures aie approximately correct-and form a fair  oasis for' estimatrng'the numbers of  troops from the,number pf units.        *  , On Monday evening, last, Fraternity Hall was the scene of a most interesting event in the annals of Hedley  Oiange Lodge, ��������� when-1 local chapter  of the Ladies' Orange Benevolent  Association was organised in connection with the L. O. L. at this place,  under the direction of the Most Worshipful Grand Mis'tress Tulk of Vancouver. The event was a session of  mingled business and pleasure, the  early part of the programme being in  the nature of an informal concert  after which light refreshments were  served, to be followed in turn by the  real business of the evening���������the organization of the ladies' lodge.  The meeting'was called to order by  chairman Hv F. Jones at 7.30 o'clock  and the programme openeel by a song  from Mr. J. Howe. W. Lonsdale contributed a couple of instrumental selections. Mrs. W. F. Forbes followed  with a pleading recitation; and a trio  consisting of Messrs. G. Kriowles, T.  Knowles and J. Howe, rendered the  British marching song "It's" a Long  Way to Tipp'erary" amid prolonged  applause. Short speeches were given  by the' chairman; Most Worshipful  Bust Grand Master, J. J. Tulk; Bro.  S. Knowles and others, prior to the  adelress of the evening by the Most  Worshipful Mistress who "dealt exhaustively with the purposes, scope,  and history of Orangi.sm and the relation of the Ladies' Benevolent As-  sociation thereto. When the prospective" initiatates had received ad-  oidequate rnstructiein, the mere men  were ejected and the mysteries began.  Following is the official designation  of the lodge and a list of the officers  electeel:  Hedley Ladies Orange   Benevolent  Sir   Edward  Grey  Publishes    Explicit  Denial of Charge That Alliss  Use Dum-Dum Bullets  Sir Edward Grey has caused the  following categorical denial of the  German charge that the British and  French troops have been using dum- '  dum''bullets to be published in Holland, ������������������  "His Majesty's Government declares  publicity and officially that the statement made by  the   Gentian general  staff to the effect that durn-dum bullets were found orr English and French  prisoneis  of war  is entirely  untrue.

'  Introducing his   bill,   the   Premier *  strongly repudiated the assertion that \  the Government had violated any of ,  its assurances not to proceed with cbn-  tioversial legislation.  ,   To have  postponed  passage of any1  of the bills until after the termination *  of the war, he baid, would have had a  deplorabl? effect on  the Irish race all j  over the world and on Irish recruiting.  The Premier promised that before the  Honie Rule bill  came  into operation   ���������  the Govsrnment would introduce an  entirely new amending bill.

THE PRAYER OF A  RIGHTEOUS MAN  ���������      There  is ;\ somewhat   ludicrous as-  ... ��������� pect to -.President   Wilson's act-ion in  setting aside a clay of public prayer for  the cessation  of  the struggle in Eur-  ;   ope. The war iseithergood otitis evil;  .   the Creator is  addressed as all-po\ver-  -   t'ul, all-seeing,  all-benevolent and all-  wise.    If the  war is, in some, inscrut-  ;   able manner, working for .the good .of  .   the race, then consider the presumption  ���������   of any manor  body of   men  praying  i'or its  termination.    If the war is an*  evil; then surely the fact  is known in  Heaven without promptings from the  .   Earth.    A Providence,  all-seeing and  :   all-wise,   needs  no   suggestions from  .   below to (l.isttinguish between good anel  evil.    A Providence, nil-powerful, can  abolish the evil and sustain the.good.  .   A   Providence,    aU-bonevelcuit,   will  do  this without   instructions   and  a  Providence, not benevolent, will baldly listen to a prattled prayer.  Prayer   that    craves    a,   particular  ���������;   benefit���������anything less tlmu all good���������  .   is   vain   and   unworthy.    Prayer    to  effect a private end is mean add mecli-:  ���������cunt.    Emerson -compares it to   theft.  A man who is in harmony  with. God  will not beg.

Home truths,  vigorously told,  never hurt any one and wejare always  pleased to  receive critisisrus, wise  or  otherwise.    The .evident  sincerity of  our subcriber's remarks  makes   them  worthy   of.  publication.    While   not  wishing to enter any controversy,   we  desire to observe  in  self justification  that we regard tbe Duke of Connaught  a high  minded gentleman   whose  intrinsic, qualities eif statesmanship are  such as not to require  half a yard of  extrinsic decorations for the purpose  of. commanding .respect.     We    have  been  accused of .many things at  one  .time or another  but  never  before  of  anything  savoring of   disrespect   to  British institutions.    We are familiar  with  the orders    and decorations in  question; and,   as  they  were mostly  unearned, we  are at a loss  to  understand just how  they add dignity  to  the  holder.    Finally   we  fail   to see  anything immoral in  the belief   that  om parliamentary edicts can command  respect on their merits without carrying so  much   excess baggage   in   the  form of quaint mouthings  from   the  middle ages.  A PIANO manufacturer, recently made a house-  *^ to-hoiise canvass. He's one of those men with  an absurd fear of the "waste-circulation"-bugaboo  ������������������cannot get away from the haunting thought that '.  only 10 out of every 100 readers of a newspaper  'may be possible buyers of his goods.  So he refused to advertise, and went a-canvassing  ���������inviting people  to come  to  his piarib  recitajs. <  Then he wondered why they didn't come: ... ,y������^  This is why:  He wasn't reaching lh������ people.  His canvassers rang every door-bell in  . town.   They talked to some one in every  house.  But one in every household isn't enough  ���������particularly if it doesn't happen to be  the right person. And, as a rule, it wasn't  the right person���������it was a servant, or a  child. The woman, of the house was seldom  seen; the man of the house, never.  'i: . Now, if the piano maker had placed an  -��������� acL in the newspaper, it would have reached  ^thousands,   where  the  canvassers   could  reach only hundreds.  '. And even though only 10 per cent, of the  readers are; actual piano buyers, this does  . not mean that the advertising read by the  other 90 per cent.,is .wasted. Advertising  talks, not only to the prospective buyer,  . but also to his wife, his grown-up sons and-  daughters, his mother���������even his mother-  in-law.  Their coaxing will help to convince  the head of the house���������and pretty soon  there'll be a piano in that home.  This and dozens of similar cases which  might be cited to show "that "waste circulation" is an empty bugaboo, and should  deter no one.  Take the motor truck. It can be sold  only to large firms Yet a motor truck  manufacturer is successfully Advertising  in daily papers. He realizes that he must  reach, not alone the managers of the concerns that require trucks, but also, their  directors, their foremen, their head machinists, etc. It is found in actual practice  that this Advertising radiates in a.thousand  directions, and again converges most astonishingly to influence the house that has  made up its mind that horse-trucking is  too costly and inefficient.  *>;!

The Novelty  Cowboy: race was won  by* Raincock  with Richter second.'   irf this race the  boys had to put their chiips -ririel spur.-s  on'lrghta cigar,  and then turn three  stales while going round the show  building. When the'northern part  of B. C. had to meet the southern, in  the potato race, it was seen that the  Similkameen valley* had to stand forthe whole of tlie south'. " Nevertheless  the boys from the shiiny valley pulled  off anotner victory."!- This;[was a'vety  exciting radel' There -was 'a. pile'of  potatoes put at ench end of Jthe^ii-t-nn  with five-cowboy's "on each* side' *wit;h  pointed sticks to enable them to spear  the spuds. The ieleii then was to see  who could get-the potatoes into their  respective barrels. At the same  time each side ' endeavoring by  interference to stop the othe*r from  accomplishing the* purpose. The Siinilkaineen won easily the Northerners only managing to "pocket" one  poor lone spud, while our hoys were  getting away with the bunch. Maur  ice Daly who got the name of the  "liaby cowboy" was up and around  everywhere, holding the wild horses  anel being of general assistance to all  the contestants. When he was on  the job he ceiuld easily be picked out,  when he wasn't it took two special  cowboys to finel him. He had the  time of his life! Mrs. Hans Richter  who entered for the ladies' roughrid-  ing took special prizes. Altogether  the cowboys from the Similkameen  covered themselves with glory. The  roughriding contest was won by D. L.  White of Chilcotin. This carried the  Championship belt of B. C. White  certainly deserved the honors for after  he had won the championship he rode  the worst horse that conld he found  with his stirrups tieel behind the  saddle. George Webb of Cariboo won  the championship of B. C. for bare  back horsemanship.  AUTO STAGE SERVICE  Tweddle's cars are  comfort- \  able.
