Marion moved towards the dour.
The imploring look had gone from her

hopeless. And yet in the face of her
confession, in face of the knowledge
of her crimes, not one of them had the

ibody spoke and no voice was raised

The cloud lay heavy upon Ihem all:
It would be n long while before il
passed away. Ravenspur rose at
length, his face white and worn.
"We can .do no good here," he said.
"Perhaps sieep will bring us merciful
( relief."
II was al ihis moment lhat Symonds
looked in with her Information, li
j was no shock, because all were past
being shocked. Vera cried on Geoffrey's shoulder.
"I am glad of It," she whispered:
"it's an awful tiling to say, but 1 am
glad, li saves Marlon. We shall
never see her again; but I am glad she
is saved."
A young couple were looking down
on the Mediterranean from the terrace
of an old garden lilled with the choic-
j est flowers. The man looked bronzed
' and well, the girl radiantly happy. For

of youth.

Suggests Winnipeg as Capital
The Calgary News-Telegram, in un
editorial, urges the moving of the Dominion capital from Ottawa lo some
more westerly point. Winnipeg is

Live-stock in Demand
Farmers    and     Ranchers   of   Alberta
Benefiting  From  Competitive
Following is part nf a report made
by a livestock commission linn ut'Cal-
gary, which tells its own story:
"The best Indication of the growing
I strength in the market is the broad
I outlet for generous receipts, which in
j lhe ease ol hogs, the eastern packers
are apparently unable lo buy sufl'ic-
i lent hogs in the east to Iill the de-
! mand, and nre therefore compelled
' to pay high prices here to compete
| with local packers. In regard to the
i cattle market we opened a new outlet
j by shipping lo Seattle, wliicli has had
a stimulating affect on the market
| here. We .have had shipped, siuee the
middle of November, over 3,000 head
j 01' beef cattle. We might also add that
I Ihese cattle brought the top price on
! the open market. The highest price
I paid on ihc Seattle market was for an
I Alberta steer, which' we shipped Deli-ember 20, 1915, weighing 1,700 lbs,,
| which brought lhe fancy price of 10c
I per  lb.
j "Since the opening of the Alberto
stockyards the livestock business in
Alberta lias grown, and markets bav��
i been opened, which have given th���
farmers a; competitive market foi
Iheir livestock.
"The hog Industry lias multiplied
j many limes in the last three years.
| There are many signs pointing to ar.
increase in the number of sheep and
cattle. The sheep business is being
developed rapidly, and the demand fot
breeding ewes lias tenl prices up both
east and west. Breeders of pure-bred
sheep have sold all they can spare.
Derlng the past two or three years
fanners and ranchers have been increasing their herds; cows and heiH.
ers have been held, while hundred*
wliicli have come to market hav��
been shipped back to the country foi

Sciatica Vanishes Instantly

Xo ordinary liniment will even relievo Sciatica, Nothing but the most

All this time the same old "Nerviiine"

hope is there for the future? The answer lo this lies in Hie meaning attached to the word "Germany." The
Germany that nobody can trust is the

own interests, the Germany that tears
up treaties, murders non-combatants,
and neutrals wholesale, plots arson
and outrages and crimes of violence
in neutral (thai is friendly) countries,
that maltreats prisoners of war, and
violates even the few strict rules of
warfare unconditionally laid down in
its own cynical wnrbook, which allows
almost everything by way of exception under (he piea of necessity. So
long as that, Germany remains on that

Md. Hurford takes exception to
our remarks last week nnd says
that the intention of the committee
was lo find out what nre the city's
rights in the matter from lawyers
and engineers before seeking to
. make au agreement with the Goin-
pflliy, and thinks this is a very wise
and businesslike way of doing the
work \VV must confess that it is
quite the correct way. But wc
gathered from the report of the
Utilities Committee, and the action
of the council, that they were to be
empowered to frame up the agreement to suit themselves, the lawyers and engineers, and then present it to the Company for their
signature, willy nilly, which would
be most unbusinesslike. We hold
nn liiief for the Company but like
ail the rest ot tlie citizens think
that the light is a good thing for
Courtenay, and would not like to
see the Company badgered until in
disgust they cut the light off from
us aud waited until the town grew
large enough to create a paving demand for light, which at the prsent
time it does rot, before turning it
on again or seeking a franchise.
For a live town, with prospects,
enjoying a fair share of the good
and bad alike, Courtenay seldom
gets mention from the leading
newspapers of the province, the
reason being that no one troubles
to send news items concerning the
municipality and district to the
pi ess. The camp of the 102nd
Batt., at Comox, has advertised the
district more than any event in
past years, and should be followed
up by regular contributions to the
outside newspapers in order to
bring the district constantly before
tb ��� notice of the general public.
We appeal to our readers to lift up
their imaginations somewhat, and
to cease to think of Courtenay as a
place "which was, and now is not."
We   need   settlers, we   need fresh
tion; progre��sis life, and stagnation
is death. But how can settlers,
capital, new blood and all the
other desireable features be attracted unless something is done to let
folks know that Courtenay und the
Comox Vallev nre not merely clearings in the bush. The west is supposed to be typical of " hustle."
Well, if the presenl stale of affairs

The proposal bus more than once
been advanced that British Golum-1
bia should have n force similar to
lhe North West Mounted Police,
one of the finest bodies of men in
the world and able to go anyweere
and to do anything. When the
war is ended, there will be a splendid supply of first class officers and
recruits, and such a force would be
in every way valuable. The uniform alone would be a moral force
and the military system under
which the R N.W.P. is governed
would be the best for a province,
which like the prairie provinces,
contains a very mixed population.
The opponents of Prohibition would
then have no fears about loopholes,
blind pigs, etc., for such and the
R.N.W.P. do not go together, In
saying this, we do not attack the
present system of policing rural
districts; we merely seek to supersede it with a better one, and one

The greatest authority I know as to whether liquor is

who 25 years ago I used frequently to see drive up to the
private entrance of that great house. He celebrated his 84th
birthday the middle of last month, and says life is still sweet

his time, but cheerfulness had conquered them all. He said

there's nowhere for the poor man or

wonder that drunkenness is proportionately greater in the rural cities than ti is
