Alfalfa Good *"or Horses
Alfalfa is practically i.s good when
fed to horses as when fed to milch
cows or to growii'i; stock, but we
must be careful to "balance" tbe ration. Timothy hay is a good filler
and that is one of i.s treat values in
feeding horses: it affords bulk t.>
th" food, so when timothy is fed
along with oats we have a very nice
combination. The outs furnish the
'strength" nnd the timothy furnishes
the bulk. Alfalfa is a feed reaiiy
"stronger" than oats, and when we
use it in place of timothy we are just
doubling the strength of onr teed.
Tin feed is mude so "strong" that the-
animal Is unable to utilize it entirely

The Battered Trench
"f-tas a glorious morn in May,
Tlie dew still on the grass;
As we sat in a battered trench
Diseusstng lhe aspliyxeathig gas.
All the lines were perfectly quiet,"
You could not hear a sound;
As we sat in the battered trench
'Mid ruins 'ill araund.
But that canny morn passed slowly on
And broke was the quist spell,
When a hundred nuns bvrst forth
With a crash of a very Hell.
The men that held that battered trench,
Each bore his hopeless lot,
"fwas that of a terrible death,
A mass, a near hotel pot.
The shrapnel fell likl hailstones,
With a most terrific row;
Mangling thut battered trench
Wee the work of a Devil's plough.
Long, long shall I remember,
Perchance to my dying day;
The sifihtfl I saw ill that battered trench
On the 24tU of May.

retired for the night, when Miss

rebes. The fire burned furiously
for upward*: of two hours. The
building was one of the oldest iu

thirty, five years ago, and  was en-

Dr. McKay Jordan
created somewliat of a sensation in Nanaimo, Ladysmith and Duncan when he announced he had acquired a complete stock of ground and unground
lenses and grinding plant, and would as a matter of
introduction examine eyes and sell glasses at $3.50
which, in the ordinary way cost from $7.50 to $10,
with like reductions in special cases; the result being the doctor's offices were crowded all day long on
his visits during the past few months
Next week he will give  the residents of the northern  end of
the Island and Vancouver an opportunity of obtaining glasses
at the same prices as Nanaimo, Ladysmith and Duncan
When one considers the offer, made by such an   eminent Kye
Specialist, who has had  18 year's practice  in the province to
substantiate any statements made, it ia certainly a guarantee
of his reliability
This special offer on the doctor's part is simply to become
better acquainted throughout British Columbia, and at the
same time, during the present financial stringency, giving
those ir. need of glasses the benefit of the bargain he secured in
purchasing a large stock of lenses at less than 5c on the dollar

Letters to The Editor
Editor Review,
Dear Sir,���In the editorial column "f
last week's Review there is uu article
incorrectly criticizing certain ol the
Aldermen and accusing them ol ridiculous action in connection with tin.- i|itea-
tion of dealing with the bridge planks
taken by certain of our citizens for their
own private use with the permission ol
the Mayor and George Leighton, chairman of the Hoard of Works. This action was not right on the part of the
above mentioned officers because all the
members of the Board of Works, namely
G. Leighton, W, G. Robertson and J.
W. McKenzie had previously agreed
that the planks were to lie hauled to Isabel street until the council would decide
where to use them, Therefore it was au
undignified action ou the part of the
Mayor and George Leighton, chairman
of the board of works, to ignore W. t*..
Robertsod and J. W. McKenzie, who are
the other two members of the board of
After a full discussion   of the question
iu the council  n resolution   wns   moved
by   J, Johnston,   seconded   by   W.   G,
Robertson, that our city   constable serve
notice on the parties to return the plank
within 4S hours of notice   and threatening   legal proceedings,   but the   Mayor
, refused   to   allow   the resolution   to be
submitted to a vote of the council.  Next
morning .1 ol the Alderman, J Johnston,
Fred Kerton, W. t*.. Robertson, A.  McNeil ind J. W.   McKenzie, gave   notice
and called a special meeting to deal with
I the question and  passed the  resolution,
: the Mayor and George Leighton abseut-
! iug themselves.    At this special meeting
1 at   which the   resolution was   passed it
I was decided by said  resolution   that no-
'��� tice be served   on the  parties who  took
the  planks   to return   theni  within   24
hours after receiving notice,    Only  one
of the parties  have returued  the planks
they took away thus far.   Such defiant
��� disregard of the majority   of the council
\ and the resolution   passed  by them and
i the notices sen ed should not be allowed
[ to pass without  the public  knowing the
whole truth of the matterr
I     Now,   Mr.   Editor,   as the   article in
! your   last week's   paper makes   speaial
I mention of W, Hodgson in  terms which
' are very  misleading and  incorrect   for
the  public to   pass their   opinion upon,
the unvarnished truth is published herewith.
Mr. Hodgson stated to George Leighton, chariman of the works committee,
that he wanted to use the planks to lay
a sidewalk over a mudhole on the street
near his premises on the Lake Trail
road. George Leighton, chairman of
the works committee, hail no legal right
or authority to give Hogdson permission
without the works committee by majority obtaining the approval of the city
council first. Hogdson after keepiug
ths planks on his own premises for a
few days and in defiance of notice to
bring them back where he took them
from, commenced, with the assistance of
B. Kerton, to lay a sidewalk opposite
lot 3. block B. map 1457. Immediately
after commencing to lay the sidewalk
W. G. Robertson and J. W. McKenzie,
being two of the members of the works
committee, served a written notice on
these men asking them to cease any
further work until they got the approval
of the council first, but they kept on
working at the sidewalk, and to make
tlieir defiant offence greater tbey laid
the sidewalk in the wrong place opposite
lot 4. block B, where they did not follow the subdivision street line with sidewalk, but they only kept the proper line
of street in front of lot 4, block B, and
wnen they reached the corner of lot 4,
block B, they departed from the straight
line as shown on plan of street. Instead
of following the registered street line
they laid the sidewalk at an angle protruding out on the street far enough so
as to be outside of Hodgson's fence
which fence protrudes out into the plsn
of street ss shown on registered plan.
By laying this sidewalk in the wrong
place Hogdsoa   and  Kerton have   left a
V-shaped piece of   the
lying   between   tlie s
front line of lot 4, bio
so a perpetual   nuis.im
.in   injustice to   the n
registered  street
idew.ilk   ami   the
k It, and by d ling
e  is   created and
idtuts   mi lot 4,
block B.   opposite   whose   premise.-, the
nuisance exists.    All the above mentioned unlawful conduct  by   \V.   Hodgson
and Bj. Kerton,   and iu   defiance of the
city  council,   should   uot be   permitted
without a thorough   investigation in the
law courts,
Yours truly,
