BUILDING  BUSINESS
WITH LIGHT
Making  the   Most   of It
YOU, as an up-to-date "merchant, know
Hunt it pays to give a great deal of attention to your stole-its fittings and arrangement. Your store represents a
bit,* investment and only by keeping it thoroughly modern and not neglecting uny one
feature can you expect to make your investment profitable. The large merchants whose
stores attract hundreds and thousands of customers have built their success mainly JJIiy
tnkin ; advantage of everything which would
lend individually to their stores and bring
them to tile attention of the public,
Perhaps the most Important feature, and the
one which until recently  so many  merchants
neglected, is tlie lighting.   There is no reason
why the lighting  in your  store  should not be
considered strictly as an investment on which
a certain amount of business should be returned.    The way to make this investment  profitable   is simple when   you   stop   to   consider.
First, you must use the most   efficient lighting
unit available, and, second, your light must be
different and must make your store individual.
By carefully selecting  efficient   lighting  units
you minimize the cost, which is necessary from
an  investment standpoint.   Iiidividiializating
your light enables   you to obtain   the full advertising value of it  which is secured   only by
making it different,   The commonplace  never
attracts���in lighting or in anything else.

"Indeed! Am I to regard myself

The other bowed. The bolt had

to Bubnilt quietly. By this time
Tchigorsky's pruofs were in possession of the police. The prisoner Biuil-

rldor nnd gave tho message to a passing servant. After a lime a slow
step came Bhuffllng along up the
stairs, li was Ralph, who presenllj
nun" iuiu ibe room.
"You can leave us for a little Lime,"
he laid.
Symonds discreetly disappeared,
Shu passed Into tho corridor, The
woman in the bed opened her mouth to
ipenk, but stopped In astonishment.
Ralph's glasses were cone, and the
imootli unguents had disappeared
rom his luce. Those cruel criss-cross
lines siood oul with startling distinctiveness.
"YOU wanted to see my father"" he.
said. "My father declines to sec you
in an*, circumstances,   Perhaps l shall
(10   OS   Well."
"Vou are one c. the men l saw at
l.nssii." The words came from lhe
.vomau's lips v.illi a gasp. She hud
never been so astonished in nil her
life.
"Yes, l was the other one." Ralph
said coolly. "I had to disgulso myself when I found oul you were in
England. There is no longer uny need
for disguise. I hope you are delighted
to see nic, my dour slsler-ln-law."
"Oh, so vou know that also?"
"Vou may lake 11 for granted thai
I knew everything."
There was a lout;' pause before lhe
woman spoke again,
"I need lint nsk wiial opinion you
have formed of me?"
"You nre perhaps tho mosl depraved
wretch who ever drew the breath of
life." said Ralph, slowly und without
emotion. "To your ambition and what
you cull your religion you nre pre
pared to sacrifice everything. You
deliberately murdered ibe man who
loved vou.''
"Your brother .lustier.. I admit it.
Perhaps you will find it Impossible to
believe that I loved him. But 1 did
with my whole hear! and soul. 1
loved him and I killed him. Does it
not Bound strange? But this ls the
fact, I had to do It���for the sake of
my people and my religion I had to
do ii. When 1 recovered those papers
I slow him as he knew | would, lie
was the only thing ou earth that 1
hud to cure  for."
"Oh!    Had you not a daiigUter?"
The womun made a gesture of contempt.
"A poor creature," she said. "But I
brought her up in the strong faith I
follow, and so sho lias not been wilh-
oui her uses. .Not that she knows anything of the Holy Temple und ihe
ceremonial there.' I never told her
about the two men who escaped along
the Black Valley. If I had 1 should
have known yon lo bo n worthy antagonist Instead of a half wilted fool,
und then you would never have
brought me to this pass. Oh, ir 1 hud
only  told her thnl!"
There wus u passionate, ring in the
woman's voice.. It was the first time
during the interview that sbe had
displayed any humanity.
"You didn't and there is au end of
il." Ralph sniii.    "Go on."
"Is there any need lo go on? 1 havo
failed and there is an end of the mutter. Win n my husband died my feelings were turned to rage and hatred
of you all."
"Why should you all live and prosper while he wus dead'.'" said Mrs.
May. "With your money 1 could do
anything among my own people. 1
could found a dynasty. Did 1 not
posses., ibe occult knowledge of the
Bast with a thorough knowledge of
whal ymi are pleased to call Western
civilization? I could do il. A little
longer and your wealth would have
come lo my child; in other words, It
would have come to me. Do you understand what 1 mean?"
"Perfectly, l have understood for
some lime. Before I returned to England 1 had un idea of what was at the
bottom of the vendetta. But yon
would not have succeeded. Tclltgor-
Bky and myself made up our minds
iliut if we could nol bring the crimes
home in you we would shoot you."
Ralph spoke with a grim coldness
that was not without iis effect upon
the listener. Hard as she was, the
sentiment was after her own heart,
"Thni ivould have been murder,"
Bhe  Bald.
"Perhaps so. In the prosiac eyes of
tin  ' ��� ���,   ��� " might havo been regarded
as criminals of ihe type you mention;

would simply have disappeared! we
should have shot you and thrown your
body into ibe sea'. And I don't fancy
thai I lie deed would have weighed
very heavily on lhe conscience of either of us."
The womun smiled. Nothing seemed to dlsturh her. she wns full of
passionati fury against lhe decrees
of fate,  but siie did  nol  show  il.
"I suppose you planned everything
oni'.'" she asked.
"Everything; Tchlgorsky nnd my*
sell between us. It was Tchlgorsky
who rescui d my nephew after your
[amlllar in the blue dress nnd red
hat had cut. the mast uml seulls. We
guessed ibut the Bearch for Geoffrey
would empty the bouse, nnd lliul vou
would take advantage of the fact.
"Geoffrey and I watched you laying
those wires, l wanted to lay you by
ihc beds here while Tcbigorsky overhauled your possessions, Your mes-
Benger wus waylaid and robbed of
your hey. Also 1 opened Ihe letter
you    int.  by  my  niece,  so  that   your
confederates might be summoned to
your assistance,"
"Marlon bus come back again?"
"Within the lust hour, yes. You
will see her presently."
The woman smiled furiously.
"Not tonight," she said.    ".Not to
night.     I  am   lit Hill   fancy   I   shut1
sleep well.    I sbull be glad of a   lollg,
long rest,    shall l see your father?"
"A'o,"   Ralph   said    sternly.    "You
certainly shall nol."
"Then good-nighl,    Do not  bo surprised if I beul you yet."
To he Continued)
Moving to Town
The    Retired  Farmer is  Not Always
Contented In His New Surroundings
Every spring In almost  every section of the country there Is au exodus
of  middle  aged   uml  elderly   farmers
Ifrom ihe farm to the little towns   a
sort of counter movement to Ihe buck
to ihe land migration ol town folks,
we 'nine investigated many of Ihese
exchanges of the rami for lhe town,
and  we are convinced  that  in  most
cases lhe initiative has been taken by
[the wife,  the    husband    acquiescing
willingly or grudgingly as his lute-rest
in bis farm homo was slight or deep
rooted,
But why do farmers want to sell or
rent their farms, give up the habits of
a lifetime and .move Into u cramped
house in the town'.' Doubtless in n
majority of Instances the answer
would he that the difficulty of obtaining help indoors and out, and the coil-
sequent hard work entailed upon the
farm owner, make lhe change desirable or Imperative. Then there ure
jthe wife und daughters longing for a
Utile more liveliness and excitement;
'���. but at ihe bottom of it all Is that
j restlessness and all Impelling desire
for a change which attacks every man
when he has reached middle life. If
i one is able to withstand the disease
! for a few years, he is likely lo lind
his familiar environment take on new
! attractions. Just now in our neighborhood this insistent desire for a change
; has gripped a number of my neighbors so hard thut. ihey ure joining in
excursions to Florida, In the hope of
finding swamps, where, it is claimed,
summer Is perpetual, tho alligators
good company, the neighbors rich, refined and cultured, and where an assured and ample income is derived
from celery, asparagus, potatoes or
some oilier single crop to which the
land is alleged to be peculiarly well
adapted. Some of our neighbors who
have, returned are full of enthusiasm,
while others, and these are the, more
observing and successful at home, see
nothing particularly Inviting in lhe
Florida prospect.
What does n man who has lived and
worked on a farm for fifty years or
longer gain by moving to town and
engaging in the monotonous task of
klling lime? In the lirst place he
pains leisure, if that is desirable. He
has time to get into the front, line
whenever n lire occurs and the engines aro brought, into play; bul even
that novelty grows stale in tini". lie
has leisure lo visit the court room
antl witness the administration of justice, us it, Ib displayed in the trial of
.scores of trivial and petty enses; bul
be soon finds lliul, it adds little lo his
contentment or satisfaction of mind
and less to his income. And it Is ihe
; paucity of his income that, is a constant source of worry lo himself nnd
| his good wife. To get along on it ut
I all it is necessiiry to skimp and pure
'and lo sail close to the wind. What
! would happen if tlie crops should
prove had und ihe, tenant default in
the payment of his rent, they dure not
think; and so they linil eventually that
life in th" town is not all it was to
their imagination as tin y discussed
the prospect in lhe sitting room buck
home, and thai not even the privilege
of sitting on a store box in front of a
town dry goods store in Ibe bright
spring weniher, swapping farm experiences with other "retired'' and marooned farmers, provides lhe entire
satisfaction it was supposed io. 1 have
seen many of these abandoned farmers in the country town, and very few
of them wear a happy smile. The older men seem to me to have lost all interest in llie game of life, and to have
descended to the role of pott- gossip-
ors, while wniiing for the grim Reaper to gather ihem in, lo be laid away
llnally underneath ihe clods uml ihe
grass' they hud long ago hastened to
escape when they decided to leave the
farm. It items to me that no mailer
how it Is viewed, this abandoning the
I'arni for n home in town, fails to realize ibe Investment in happiness anil
contenl thai is promised al the outset.
Butter From Saskatchewan
Shipments of butter from Saskatchewan  io  points outside the province
lasl vear totalled *>- carloads, according' to u sluteinenl made by the dairy
commissioner at  the annual convention of iho Saskatchewan Dairymen's
association.    This  is  a  great change j
from receni conditions when Saskatchewan was an Importer of butter for
its own needs, hut th'' commissioner
savs lhe industry is just in its infancy
as there is nu unlimited export market,     ruder  Ihe  careful  government
supervision,  under    which  creamery
butler is produced   in the province,
Saskatchewan butter tins attained nu ;
excellent  quality    which    has    been,
shown  by lhe preference accorded  it j

Not Conquered*, But Overrun
Germany   Will   Not   Permanently   Acquire  Any  New Territory as a
Result of the War
The German Emperor will make
himself lhe laughing slock of lhe
world if he appoints his second son,
Prince Eltel Fredrlch, King of Serbia. Tlie Throne of Serbia is not yet
vacant, und lhe territory of Serbia
is still unconquered, iu Bpite of lhe
fact thut its capital has been transferred to a foreign country. The same
remark applies to Belgium, whose
capital was removed to France early
in the war, ns was also that of Montenegro a few days) ago. There is noi a
sane observer of current events outside of Germany who does not. believe
that each of these ihree kingdoms will
be freed from lhe Teutonic invaders
at or before lhe conclusion of the war,
nnd Hint each of Ihem will he territorially enlarged us the resull of the
whole International catacylsm.

und her crowned king was for several
years a fugitive among the mountains
of his own kingdom, bul ihal kingdom I
was during the Interval only in a slate i
of suspense. Napoleon Bonaparte in
1808 made his own brother, Joseph.
King' of Spain, but the captive Spanish monarch was restored after tlie
explosion of the French army in IMF. ,

himself took Vienna twice and Berlin once in the interval between 1805
and 18(!|t bul il did not occur lo anyone
Hint these kingdoms had thereby been
subjugated. To attempt lo Inflict a
Gorman king on either Serbia or Montenegro would at the present stage of
lhe war be regarded as presumptive
proof of tlie insanity of tlie German
monarch.
Whatever delusions Ihc Kaiser may
still cherish aboul healing the allies
into submission, there is not a commander in his array or navy, nol a
statesman in his chancellory, not a
dignitary among his ecclesiastics, not
u professor in iiis universities, not an
economist or a financier worthy

To heal sores, does not mean to
hoal over tho outer skin, only to
havo din sores break out again,
Ileal healing, means going to lho
root of the trouble und curing from
tho base upward. That is the way
Zam-Buk heals, and that Is why
Zam-Buk cures are Ins'iilg.
Zam-Buk, as soon as applied to
> sore, commences three processes.
It soothes the paiu by drawing out
tlm inuammation, Being a strong
germicide, ii thoroughly cleanses
the sore hy destroying Till germs;
-nd then by Ur marvellous healing
power. It promotes the growth of
new, healthy tissue. As the new
ti3suo gradually develops, it casts
off the old, until the diseased patch
Is replaced by new, healthy flesh.

healing, Zani-Biik euros are thorough and permanent. Send this

Working Young Horses
Great   Care   Must   be   Taken   Not  to
Overwork  the Crowing  Animal
.Some young horses of good size and
strength can safely be worked al two
years of age. if ihey ure worked moderately and bundled ivilli cure and
judgment.
The writer bus broken und worked
two young horses at two years of age,
and in both cases ihey turned oul to
be splendid mature aniinals. Both
grew nnd developed right along" till
they were live years of age, but they
mere handled with Utmost care add
fed liberally.
It is not reasonabl i lo expect a two-
year-old or a inr;'.'-: ear-old horse to
jo as much wor; as a mature animal.
Tho young horse must be given a
light load at first, und It must not be
pushed to its limit during the first
working period of its young life. It
:. best lo work the young horse with
a strong and reliable older one, giving the younger one advantage over
the old. A stay chain should be used
on the older ,iorse so that be can
start the loud und even pull it by
himself in hard places. The loud for
the team should never be excessively
heavy.
Another importan' point ;n working
'.he young horse is to never work iiuii
full (lays at first, and never crowd
aim to the pnhu of fatigue, especially
en warm days. Do nol iry to worn
the life und villi out of the young
iinimul at firs' simply because he lias
life and vim. Such is apl lo ruin his
spirit nnd result iu n slow or balky
animal. You wish to preserve his
vim and spirit lor later use.
And, by ul! means, feed ihe young
working animal liberally of it variety
io furnish energy for work and inat-
tii'iuls for the building of rich blood,
muscle, and boa -. Feed some outs,
corn, wheat bran, and alfalfa or clover hay, wiili a little oil meal, The
young animal musl be built up in body

The people nt' Vaurouver nnd
Vii'toi a have elected two Liberal
ineiiiliei's to the Legislature whose
actions will lie watched with interest by all the rest of the peu] le of
B, C. Whether they acquit themselves as statesmen or as plain
everyday j_wsmiths will largely de
termiue the fate of liiemselves and
their followers at the next general
election, There's au old saying
that if you tkrow mud enough some
of it is hound to stick. The Liberals by the help of all their prospective caudidalfjs, disgruntled Conservatives, and the reported use of
vast sums of money, made enough
of it stick to defeat two members
of the present administrators, within a week,
Notes By The Way
It pays to advertise if good value
for the money is given, tiie old
saving being:
The man who'd rise before lie dies
Must cither "bust" or advertise,
It is no use Hilly Brown advertising his apples if his mode of packing is to put the large ones on the
top layer of the box und the small
ones underneath, because Iiis brand
soon becomes known.
The dentist should advertise to
tell the people the absolute necessity of attending to their teeth, especially when we hear Irom a reliable source that strong Billingsgate
language was used by a Coster on
Un occasion of a supper at which
his Rood old friend the Baroness
Burdett Couts was present, when
some ice pudding got ill the hollow
of his tooth, forgetting the company he was iii, luil fortunately her
ladyship didn't heat it,
The stay nt home "Critic" referred to in our lasl issue tells the
Review that he stays at home to
"Review" tilings while his grandson 23 of age. who enlisted 10
montbsago, is doing his bit al the
front, which the fact of the Review
not closing down, when other
newspapers did, enables him to do,
take for instance the watered stock
company shark whom he said a
few weeks back should get a black
eye. The Hon. Sir Mr. White,
Federal Minister ol Finance, has
promised to do this by including in
Iiis budget a tax much higher man
the present act calls for on all
watered stock companies, lu all
probability our Federal ' ember
Clements urged this, being as much
anxious as "Critic" to do his level
best for the honest, iudiistiious
working man.

About one hundred soldiers headed bv two bands of the 10.ml Batt.
inarched up to the Church of St.

back to Comox again, There was
not room enough in the church for
the band, so tbev adjourned to the

inmates, and were served with refreshments by the Sisters. Such a
sight was never witnessed in Comox before.

MINSTREL SHOW
On Friday evening last one of the
largest audiences that ever gathered in Courtenay turned out to see
the Courtenay Minstrel Company
perform The club were g eatly
handicapped by the absence of several of their best performers, owing
to tlie storm of the night previous
and ravages of the grip, viz, Mrs.
Hutchinson. C. Seagreaves, O.
Gibson and T. Hudson, The club
was organized by Mrs. Kilpatrick
several weeks ago lo give a series
nf entertainments for the benefit of
the prisoners of war fund, and the
amount realized from the initial
entertainment was highly gratifying to all concerned.
The curtain rose on a row of
1 luck faced artistes sitting in a
circle round the stage with the in-
lerlocuctor, Bro, Johusing, on a
raised dias in the centre of the
crescent and nil singing a medley
of plantation songs.
The numbers were all well received, there being many fine voices
in Courtenay. Tlie singing ol Mrs.
Blair, Mrs'. Hicks Beach, Mrs.
Campbell, .Mrs. Cooke aud Mrs.
Mitchell was much appreciated by
tlie audience. F, Daly is host in
himself in the singing line, and W.
A. W. Hames song also received
marked attention. Sandy Blair's
songs need no uieuti&n, they are
always enterlainig and Sanely always has something new lo say and
sing. The Endmen's jokes were
tmelv and to the point, and some
of them made a decided hit with
the audience. If you don't believe
Arthur Shepherd is makes a good
Koon, ask Feck, both these artists
distinguished themselves   in   their
u-nial able manner.
The Cake Walk by Mrs. Cook
Miss Glazbrook, Mr. Hames and
Mr. 1'ei'liner was a n.veltv in
Courtenay aud took well.
The skirt dance by Mrs. Hieks-
Beaeh receive'.'! well-merited applause and had to be repeated.

to " buy in B.C." It seems only
fair Unit an appeal be made lo the

trouble if the bowels had been healthful and active'.
For this reason wc claim that the First and Most
Important Rule of Health is "Daily Movement of the
Bowels."
If the bowels can be kept in healthful action at all
limes there is little need for either doctor or medicines,
and about uine-teiiihs of the auuoying and dangerous ills

arouse the sluggish liver, and by so doing euro constipation.
The bile which is filtered from the blood by an active
liver is Nature's cathartic, so if you can keep the liver
right there will be no sluggishness in tlio action of tho
bowels. Keep the liver and kidneys healthy and active by
using Dr. Chase's Kidney-Liver Pills and you will prevent
and cure constipation, and thereby avoid a tnultitudo of ills.

Samples of oats received from Saskatchewan are somewhat better. Tlie
average preliminary count   is DO per
cent, ami the average final count is
ib! per csnt.   .Many samples show evidence ui   frost injury,    these always I
giving low percentages of vital seeds,,
boih    in  Hie  preliminary    and    linal
counts.   Alberta barley has. also given
low   germination   percentages.   The
average preliminary  (6-day) count is
52 per cent, and tha average linal (11-
day) count is TO per cent. These figures are  very low and indicate Hm
considerable   proportlt
oats    nnd   barley  and
oats are weak in vitality and  untie
sirable for seed purposes.
As 0110 cf Hie first essentials for
a good crop of any kind is good seed,
it is important that only good seed
witli strong germination energy and
a high percentage ot" genniuabic
seels should be used. Tho germination energy of a sample Is Indicated
by the percentage of seeds which
germinate during the first four or
live days of Hie tost. Tlie preliminary count, therefore, Is an index of
the germination energy. If. for example, the preliminary count on a
sample of oais is 26 per ecu!., the
germination energy of Hie sample is
very  low,     but    if    Hie   preliminary
'count, is 90 per cent, the germination energy is slroiig. Two samples
may vary as widely as this in the
preliminary count, but may contain
the same percentage of vital seeds
--in which enso tlie Una! counts
would be lhe same. If the final
counts only were considered
I these  samples   would   be Hu
ibe as good as    the oilier,    while in
1 reality ono    Is good seed    and    Hie
\ other  undesirable   for  uso  as   seed.
Tlie sample with a high preliminary
count    will    withstand    unfavorable
! weather   conditions   at   the lime of
! seeding very much bettor than
other.    I:     will  give  a  more    even
tand "a 'be field and a crop which
will    iu    all  probability ripen somewhat earlier.
I Farmers should satisfy themselves
before seeding time next .spring that
'their seed grain is of the last quality, This ean only be done by a

Aid. Hurford reported for the

one for sale at a lower price. The
committee were instructed to see
the latter safe before the final selection was made.
Aid. Hurfotd also said the Utilities Committee had interviewed the
Electric Light Co re agreement',
and said the company were willing
to make an agreement, but both
the city and compauy would have
to give ground 011 the last proposals. There was a lot of work to be

Many a goodnatured manager has
erected 2 or 3 miles   of line   to ac
red to prepare specified- comodate ten or a dozen customers
whose aggregate bills are hardly
sufficient to pay for the insulators.
Moreover, in nine cases out of ten
tlie installation has not even a
fighting chance of paying for itself
by the load obtained along the
way. Just what to do with the demand of this class of customers it
is not always easy to say. In
many cases a special rate is established reasonably high in appearance yet very seldom actually recouping the station for its pains.
No ordinary form of demand system can cope with the problem,
since it is not the demand which
is at issue, but the great distance
of the load, The best way out of
the difficulty in such cases is actually to chaige the construction to
the distant subscribers, perhaps letting the charge take the form of a
minimum monthly bill until the
account is squared. -���- Electtical
