had been restless, escaped fronl the
house as often as he could, ami wandered,    lie had urowii very thin.
."1 had lo leave him so much
alone," she said, with tears In her
eyes and voice. "Louise would nut
have him there, bhe dislikes dogs,
She said she could nol trust him with
Susan. If she had only seen him
ami Susan together, Susan, little
darling, loves him. My poor Keeper, he belongs to my good days, Leo
asquiesced when Louise, would ii��k
have liim in the house. I don't understand nicii. Louise thought a
kennel with a run would In' very
J nice for him. Thai was why 1 lived
ir, ihe old Cottage, at least partly,
1 love it! It is my place of refuge."
She had never spoken lo liim so
freely before. Site had not lord many
opportunities, although hr had been
lmu-Jj at llie Egertons, and they had
lunched and dined aud tca'd with
him at Silverlhorne Manor. On those
occasions, Mrs. Egerton had claimed
his attention with a manner of indolent acceptance of its being her
rightful due, Hilary bad paired nff
with Dolly as long as he stayed; and
Lionel Egerton, with lillle Susan on
his shoulder or led by the hand, wandered in the gardens, or lay ou the.
grass, his bat pulled over his eyes,
while the child sal contentedly playing wilh the daisies.
Not  from  Dolly herself, but  from
her brother's frank speech had he poi
i at  the  heart  of  the  girl's    tragedy.
Her devotion had been given lo her
I brother iill the other woman    came
and pushed her out.    Something had
sharpened  the  Squire's  wits,  for he,
who was not quick aboul such ihings
Ihad become aware that Mrs. Egerton
I deliberately  excluded    her    sister-in-
! law,  kept  her  away  from both bus
band and child.   Dolly's extravagant
worship of the child had no counter
part in the mother's tolerance of "the
brat," as she called lhe charming lil
tic creature.      And  the child    loved
Dolly���would  always    run    to    he
when she escaped from her mother
Of late he had observed an awaken
ing of maternal emotions    in    Mrs
Egerton when it was a question   of
Dolly and Susan.
Only yesterday Egerton had re
marked unsuspectingly. "Why, Granny, what has come to you? You used
to be bored with the kid, and willing
lo lei anybody take her off your
hands. Why not let Dolly take her
fur a walk?"
"Because I prefer to take her myself," Mrs. Egerton had replied wilh
what her husband called her Monna
Lisa smile. "Perhaps I am beginning to take au interest in her after
all, although she is such a naughty
little thin;!."
"Poor Susan!'' said the lather,
looking down humorously at thc
fairy-faced child. "You speck! Imagine your being naughty!"
But Susan certainly was naughty,
for she cried steadily Iill she drove
her father from his work, while her
mother, slill wearing the Monna Lisa
smile, insisted lhat it was lime Susan
should learn to obey.
As they approached the New Cottage they saw in the distance thc figure of a man approaching them.
"Oh," said Dolly, "it is Mr. Cooper. They told me he was away last
nipdit when I called at the shop.
What shall I do?"
_ lhe Squire spoke as though life
and death, J"}0[^ dian tjjc d"u's depended on her acccptaiitc of "\-lrat Tie
"Don't ask llis advice. I am-quite
qualified to advise. If there is anything a vet. can do I will telegraph
to Tattlcsham."
"Very well," said the girl under Inr
breath. Did ber sigh mean relief? "1
need not tell him, tlnn I I am | .'.ul
I met you."
Cooper came along the road wilh
the swaggering gait which was characteristic of liiiu. As be came near
enough to be aware, of them, Iiis ex-
ptcssion changed, A curious darkness overspread his face, .deepening
the color almost to purple. His eyes,
with   the   yellow   whites     lo      Ihein,
scowled, The Squire thought ae
heard a Utile catch of the breath of
his companion. Was it possible she
was afraid of the fellow?
"Good morning!" he said, chilly
polite. Cooper made as though to
stop; .hen, siring that they were
going on, he passed them, lifting his
hat with a sullen response.
"We ought to have spoken to him,"
said Dully Egerton under her breath,
"He. hiked so angry. I never meant
lo have passed him by like that."
The Squire made a most unfogyis'n
"If it depended on me, you would
always pass him by," he said. "I
wish it depended on inc."
"But why?" asked lhc girl, lifting
lir wet eyes to him,
"I don't know. I detest the fcl-
1< w."
"Vou know what he did for mci'
"I know. I. wish someone else had
none it."
"He is very brave," said Dolly, and
a wave of color came over her face
"I know lie. is not exactly a gentleman; but I  can never forget the hor
riblc thing he saved me from. That
minute when I sat there, helpless,
seeing the head-lights of the train
sweep round the curve. It seemed
that nothing could have saved me.
Really and truly hc seemed like an
angel to me ..When I saw him. I try
to remember it now, when I am disposed to hate him. I suppose hc
cannot lulp his looks and his manners. You would try to forget all
that, would you not, if he had saved
your life?"
So she knew. The Squire felt an
immense sense of relief.
"I wish someone else had rendered
you that service," he said, "I wish
I had done il"���then he added, as
wilh an effort: "I concede that he. is
brave���and efficient, 1 Iran seen llis
efficiency in action."
They turned in at the white gale
of the New Cottage, crossed the
lawn, and went in at llie opening in
the privet-hedge.
Dolly unlocked the collage door
wilh a key taken from under a slonc.
She listened with a strained anxiety.

There was a sound���the thumping of
a dog's tail upon the floor.
Pushing open the door, she ran to
the dog, who lay iu a corner of lhe
room up against the wall. She knell
down by him. The tail still beat lhe
giound feebly; but the eyes had begun not to sec.
"Oh," she cried, with piteous entreaty, "what is the matter with him?
My darling old dog!    ls hc dying?"
A great sigh shook the dog. There
was a lil tie struggle, which she did
not scc because, the Squire had pui
an arm about her and hidden her
face, Keeper was dead. He had
just lived long enough lo recognize
Ills mistress on her return, It was
Ihe last sentient acl.
At first she was inconsolable. Sin;
was possessed by sonic painful remorse for fancied unkiiiduess lo an
old friend. There had been a day
when she had been angry with
Louise, and she had spoken harshly
to Keeper when he came, thrusting
his head into her hand. She had lell
him alone for hours in thc collage.
She had felt him a tie, a hindrance,
when she wauled lo go up lo London.
The Squire consoled her patiently
and tenderly.
"I wish you would go up lo London
now," he. said, "and have me to ileal
with this."
Hc sighed because Lionel Egerton
was away, though he would be back
iu a few hour's lime. Dolly sat and
wept heart-broken tears, while the
form of the dog settled into rigidity,
She wept for herself and the dog���
for her mother, who had loved him;
for the unkiiiduess that had been
shown to him; for her own neglect,
or fancied neglect, of'himj and for
minute acts of impatience which
Keeper would have been thc first to
excuse tlle mistress he adored. She
wept for lhe losl companionship, for

Ships Biggest British Need
Call for Speeding up Mercantile Shipbuilding Becomes More Insistent
London press and public men are
confident that lhc military situation
is well ill hand. The only element of
uncertainty is the subniaiinc warfare's effect on the food supply. The
call for speeding up the mercantile
shipbuilding is mosl insistent. It tak.rs
the place of lire demands earlier in
the war for men and munitions. The.
action of neutrals in holding ships in
port has been the subject qJ inquiries
and discussion in thc House of Commons, aud there may be further de-
vclopments in lhis direction, most im.
porlant to Canada, if the Danes and
Hollanders arc unable to ship Iheir
dairy products in Iheir own vessels
or are unwilling lo lake any risk at
Iu carrying on in London tire established business of provisioning
Britain, there is a disposition here to
turn more and more toward making
thc Empire self-contained iu the
matter of foodstuffs in peace or \var.
Canada profits at once by lhis, because she is the nearest of lhc overseas Dominions, and much less shipping is ncded to bring her products
lo Britain than in the case of the
outer Dominions;

Language and Alliances
A Tribute to the Binding Power of f
Mutual Tongue
No two nations streaking the same
language are fighting against each,
other in tins war. It is also true
that there can never bc a perfect alliance, between any two ��� nations
which do not speak the same luiiguc.
There can be strong economic and.
military alliances between countries,,
these alliances being arranged by the
respective governments, the benefits
fully appreciated by lhc peoples, and
a mutual understanding existing between these individuals who arc able
to communicate wiiii each olhcr. A,
perfect alliance between two nations,
if such a thing is possible, means that
lhe people of each nation arc able to
visualize the habit of thought of tho
other, this not applying to the few
that arc particularly well informed,
but to all farmers, workmen and business men, as well as scholars, diplomats or social cosmopolites. Between America ar.d England, tncrc-
fore, exists a bond like that between
no other two great countries in the
world, wilh the exception of Germany and Austria, ami the closeness
of the alliance between these two
countries is tribute lo the binding
power of a mutual tongue. This point
of sympathetic contact acts in every
vray to bring about a good under*

Care of Eggs for Hatching
Eggs for hatching purposes should
not bc held ovcr ten days. The freshet lhcy are when put iu the incubator, the better. They need to be
gathered often to prevent chilling ii:
the nests. A mixture of various sizes
and shapes is a sure guarantee oi indifferent results. Dirty eggs also aro
to be avoided, as the pores in lliej
shcll of such eggs are closed up, thus
preventing proper entrance of fresh
air or lhe escape of gases from lhe
eggs. Washing and drying with a
cloth destroys the cuticle of an egg,
and permits too rapid evaporation of
its moisture,
has sweetened half a century with the same crystal purity
that makes it the favorite to-day. Buy it in original packages
and be sure of the genuine.

The wheat crop of Western Canada, says the Winnipeg Telegram, has
proven to bc some thirty per cent,
larger than was originally esimated
by the crop experts. The crop was
placed at from 170,000,000 to 180,-

225,000,000 bushels. At $1.50 per

Owing to  Mr. Sam Cilhotin's
. efforts in securing a couple of gentlemen to look over the  coal proposition in the valley a  couple  of
, months ago, an exhaustive report
has been  made  and   negotiations
\ have been opened   with   a   strong
; financial company who ar; content-
\ plating sendiiig men to examine the
| coal lands on their  behalf  iu   the
near future.    I,et us hope that the
efforts of   Mr,   Calhoun   and  the
other  gentlemen   associated   with
i him will meet  wilh   success.    Co-
, mox is ideally situated   for   a coal
, industry and all that goes wilh it,
as well as iron   and   steel   works.
Comox harbor is deep   enough   to
float the largest battleship   at   low
tide, and large enough to  float the
shipping of the Pacific ocean.   The
harbor i' protected from sea svve.ls
by reason of it's being an   arm   of,
the Straits ami lhc   Pacific ocean, |
The harbor   is   further   protected
from any possible rough sens which
might occur on the straits by  Den
man Island, lying southeast cf th*
entrance to the   bay,   and   Goose
Spits a linger like ledge of protect
ion sandstone extending from Knob
Hill at the the south-east   entrance
of the hay, for the distance of .bout
a mile.   This splendid   harbor   is
practically undeveloped, there being
but a single clock constructed   iulo

mox on the    north   shore,   ami   a
.small wharf   nt   Royston   oil   lhe
The Comox Cogging and Kail-
way Co. also have their booming
ground on the south side, where
tlie logs from the Camps round
about Headquarters are hauled
down their railroad through Courtenay and formed into rafts or
booms and towed to their mills on
Vie Fraser River, where they are
converted into lumber and shipped
to tlie markets of the world. These
logging camps a*e the largest in
the world, and from 500,000 to 800-
ouo feet are hauled to the booming
grounds daily. Comox Bay and
the Courtenay River i.s an ideal lo-J
cation for the shipbuilding industry
with coal, coke, lumber and immense deposits of iron iu the mountains at our back door. The climate is mild, the mercury rarely
going below freezing in the winter
and as high as 85 in the summer.
There is iu thc near vicinity an unlimited supply of raw material from
which pulp for paper can be made,
aud ihere are vast undeveloped water power possibilities on the rivers
tributary to Comox.
The grade of coal underlying the
Comox valley is hitunious in
character, geneially free from impurities and is esteemed a high
grade coking and steam coal, and
there is about twenty feet of il, and
it has been estimated that there are
35,000 tons lo lhe acre, therefore
If theie are 15.000 acres available
coal lauds there should be approximately 500 0011,00) tons of coal underlying the district at a depth of
about 2100 feet,
Iron and Steel
The present development: of the
Pacific coast Slates and Alaska
would absorb nil lhe iron and steel
output of a steel plant of considerable proportions. Willi coke, iron
ore and limestone at near points,
Coniox Bay with its water transportation facilities, would be an
idea! point at which to establish an
iron and steel industry, There are
large deposits of iron ore in the
hills north-west of Courtenay and
iron ore and limestone on Texada
Island, only a few miles east of us.
Bulletin No. 1. II. C, Bureau of
Mines says; "As is well known;
there is on the coast in the aggregate, an adequate supply of iron ore
quite sufficiently free from intpur:.

This district is probably the only
one on Vancouver Island of which
the underlying coal is not a part of
1 he coal grants to the railroads.
The railway grants were designed
aud intended to absorb all of the
coal deposits on the Island, but this
section of the Island having been
taken by farmer settlers pnorito the
railroad grab, the title to the farmers carried the coal rights which
can now be secured independent of
the railroads, and this is the only
available tract of any magnitude on
the Island,
The possibilities of investment
iu this district present many alluring points. The rapid development
of the Pacific Coast region, Alaska
and the north-west, jn the event
of a coal mine, being opened up
there is enough coal to maintain an
output of 3000 tons per day for
hundreds of years, The real estate

Vitus Dance���Do Not
Neglect It
.Many a child has been called mvk
ward, has been punished., ill school
for not keeping slill or for dropping
ihings when tlie trouble was really St.
Vitus Dance. Tllis disease may appear at any age, but is most common
between the ages of six and fourteen
years. It is caused by thin blood
which fails lo carry suineient nourishment to lhe nerves, and the child becomes restless and twitching of the
muscles and jerking of the iimbs and
body follow. In severe eases the
child is unable lo 'hold any thing or
feed itself. St. Vitus Dance is cured
by building up the blood. The most
successful treatment is to remove the
child from all mental excitement,
slop school work and give Dr. Williams' l'ink Tills. These pills renew
the blood supply, strengthen the ner.
vcs,-and restore the child to perfect
health. Here is proof of their power
to cure. Mrs. S. Sharpc, Oakvillc,
Out., says:���"When my daughter was
nine years old she was attacked with]
St. Vitus Dance. She was scut to a;
sanatorium where she remained for
nine weeks wilhoui any benefit. Indeed when we brought her home she

"The Department of Agriculture,
In the winter and spring of 1915, carried out a wide campaign of '1'atri-

lhc sentiment aroused, and of the
fortunate climatic conditions, ue witnessed, happily, the greatest harvest
in lhe history of the western country

made in the vv-cter and spring of
1916. Unfortunately, lhe climatic
conditions of 1916 were thc reverse
of favorable. An excess of moisture
in-many parts of thc counlry, widespread outbreaks of rust, and other
difficulties, resulted in a wheat crop
In the three western provinces of approximately 199,900,000 bushels, and
a shortage of most crops throughout

the department should meet the new

000,000 bushels, could no longer look

rendered more difficult and more
costly by shortage of transportation

already printed, have in preparation
special pamphlets and circulars designed to bc of direct, practical use
to those who have hitherto paid little
attention to gardening or production
of any kind. The experimental farm

farms and stations, covering thc
counlry from coast to coast. Thc
work is naturally nearly all of an ex-j
perimental or investigational character, 'lhis year the officers in the respective districts have been instructed to direct their cfforls to tlie immediate problem of crop production,
and the help and influence of each
farm should stretch ovcr a large territory.
"A departmental committee has
been appointed to give special and

Discharge and PcnsionRuiea
New Provisions Made for Benefit of
Soldiers in Respect to Pensions
The following memorandum has
been issued by the Dominion Minister of Militia:
Important changes have just becn
promulgated in relation lo the discharge and pensioning nl Canadian
soldiers. Hereafter, no invalided
soldier will be discharged from the
Canadian Expeditionary force until a
medical board has certified that further treatment or hospital care will
not improve his condition, or that it
is advisable that he should pass under his own control.
When discharge lias been recommended ou account of physical unfitness, ii will pot be carried out
until a notification has been received
from the pension commissioners that
the amount of the pension has been
determined. "The notice, will make
clear on what day thc pension will
commence and uniil that time, pay
and allowance will be made to lhe
soldier or to those dependent on him.
The adoption of this system insures the disabled man receiving his
pension immediately on his discharge, up lo which time his pay
and allowance wiil be continued.
Pensions are always paid monthly
in advance.
It is difficult to   understand   the
German people. For two years they
have seen their armies held up and
unable to attain their objectives; they'
have experienced the growing pressure of the Allied blockade and suffered the increasing discomforts of
hunger unappcascd. But through it
all they have not lost faith in their
leaders or abandoned hopes of victory. Their credulity is unbounded,
Years of slate regulation have robbed them of initiative and independence of thought. 'Ihey still believe
that the llritish fh-cl was defeated in
the battle of Jutland, ami th.u German submarines arc causing famine
and starvation throughout the United Kingdom. They are prepared to

they consumed with hatred of Great

The credulity of the German people is one of lhe great obstacles to

Returned Soldiers to Get Priority In

An important order-in-council has

to bc a Britisii subject or a subject
of a country which is an ally of his

establishes lhe same to the satisfaction of the minister of the interior."
The order applied to "rights, powers or other benefits in conection with
