A mule which has been running
at large all winter, evidently has
taken a notion to camp on the
Crawford ranch for lhe summer.
He has been turned out a number
of times but always breaks his way
in again.
The regular meeting of the
Women's Institute was held at
Sandwick, on Wednesday, the 14th
A large number of ladies were
present. A letter was read from
Lady Williams Taylor, President ol
Queen Mary's Needlework Guild,
Montreal, thanking the Comox Institute for the articles received.
It was decided to send ten dollars
to the "Relief work for the victims
of the war iu Belgium" at Montreal to buy condensed milk for the
Belgian children.
Mr. Peters the Government Engineer who was in Courtenay last'
week lias a brother at tli'? front as
captain of a Bengal Native Lance s
Regiment. The Captain in a letter
home states that during the battle
of Neuve Chapelle the British had
30,000 cavalry concealed in the
woods behind the British lines
waiting the word to attack the
Germans should the British break
through. Owing to unforseen circumstances and the demoralized
state of the infantry after the
battle and the time it took to reform them it was not considered
right to use the mounted troops.
Had things gone right for the
British during this fight we might
have seen the British tioops web on
the way to Berlin by now if tbey '
had once got the. Germans on the .
run.
Mr,"Peters, Engineer of the Dominion Public Works Department
was in Courtenay last week and did
some surveying aud iounding in
the river with a view to some further
work lieing done this summer, He
is making a report for Ottawa re
the bar which has to be taken out
and for the Channel to be dredged
from tbe Grain Growers wharf to
I the mouth of the river. He has
also recom lended that all snags be
taken out and retaining walls be
built at the gap and the slough at
Campbell's, for which he has taken
soundings, and a.so that the large
rocks be moved out of the river at
the old slaughter house. It is to be
hoped that the City Council and
the Board of Trade and the Conservative Association will all unite
and press the matter so that the
work will le commenced at once.

otitpr world was barred off, but ii was
futile, childish. In vain
Tho    young    people,    with    Mrs.
Charles, had risen from the tablo and I
hud gathered on the pllo ol alclna ami J
eiishlnns In one ot the Ingle uoolis,
Gordon  Ravenspur  was sipping his i
claret and holding a cigar with a hand
that trembled. i
Hardy man as lid was, Uie shadow I
lay upon htm also; Indeed, it lay upon Uiein aU. 11 the black death failed
lo strike, lhen madness would come
creeping in its track. I'ltus il was
that evening generally round tho family all together. There was something
soothing In the presence of numbers.
They were talking quietly, almost
in whispers. Occasionally a. laugh
would break from Vera, only to be
suppressed with a smile of apology.
Kavenspur looked fondly Into the blue
eyes of the dainty little beauty whom
they all loved so dearly.
I hope I didn't offend you, grand-
fa ilier," she suid.
In that big hall voices sounded
strained and loud.   Ravenspur smiled.
"Nothing you could do would offend me," he said, "It may lio possible
that a kindly Providence will permit
mo to hear the old roof ringing with
laughter again. It may ho, perhaps,
that that is reserved for strangers
when we are all gone."
"Only seven left," Gorden murmured.
"Bight, father," Vera suggested.
She looked up from the lounge on the
lloor with lho flicker of tho wood
Uro In her violet eyes. "Do you know
I had .1 strange dream last night, I
dreamt that, Uncle llalph camo home
ngaln. He had a, great black bundle
la his arms, and vhen tlie bundle
burst open It Idled the hall with a
gleaming light and In the centre of
that light was the clue to tlio mystery."
llavenspur'S face clouded. Nobody
but Vera would hive dared to allude
to his son Ralph in his presence,
For over Ralph Ravenspur hung the
shadow of disgrace���a disgrace he
hud tried to shift ol- to the shoulders
of Ids dead brother Charles, .Marion's
father. Of that darn business none
knew tbo truth but the head of the
family. For twenty years ho had
never mentioned liis erring son's
name.
"It Is to he hoped that Ralph is
dead," he said harshly.
A sombre light gleamed in liis
eyes. Vera glanced at bim half timidly. But she knew how deeply her
grandfather loved her, and this gave
her courage to proceed. "1 don'l like
to hear you talk like that," she said.
"It is no time to bo harsh or hard on
anybody. I dont know what ho did,
but I have always been sorry l'or
t'nele Ralph. And something tells
me he ts coming home again. Grandfather, you would not turn him
away?"
"If he were ill, ir he were dying, if
lie suffered from some grave physical
affliction, perhaps not.   Otherwise--"
Ravenspur ceased to talk. The
brooding look was still in his eyes;
his white head was bent low on bis
breast.
Marion's white lingers touched his
hand caressingly. Tlie deepest bond
of sympathy existed between these
two. And nt tbo smile in Marion's
eye Ruvcnspur's face cleared.
"You would do all that Is good and
kind," Marion said. "You cannot do-
I'oivo me; oh, I know you too well
for that. And if Uncle Ralph came
now!"
.Marion paused, and the whole
group looked one to the oilier with
startled eyes. With nerves Btrung
tightly like lliclrs, the slightest deviation from the established order of
things was followed by u feeling of
dread and alarm. And now, on the
heavy silence of the night, the great
boll gave clnnioroun and brazen
���  tongue.
Ravenspur started lo his feel.
".Strange that anyone should come
at this time . ' night," he said, "Xo,
Gordon, 1 will go. There can be no
danger, l'or tliis is tangible."
lie passed along tlio halls and
passages till lie came to the outer
uak.   He let down the portcullis.
"Come inlo tho lig)_," ho cried,
"and let me see who you arc."
A halting, shuffling step advanced,
and presently the gleam of tlie hall
lantern shone down upon the face of
a man whose features were strangley
seamed and scarred. It seemed as if
the whole of his visage had been
scored and carved In criss-cross lines
until not one inch of uncontamlnated
flesh remained.
Ills eyes were closed; he came forward with fumbling outstretched
hands as if searching for some familiar object. The features were expressionless, but this might have
been the result of those cruel scars.
But the whole aspect of the man
Bpoke of dogged, almost pathetic, determination.
"You look strange and yet familiar

I" nie," said Ravenspur. "Who are
you and whence do you come?"
"I know you," the si ranger replied
in a strangled whisper. "I could recognize your voice anywlure Yoll arc
my father."
"And you an Ralph, Ralph, com''
back again!"
There was horror, Indignation, surprise in the cry. The worus rang lord
and (dear, so loud and clear thai they
reached the dining ball and brought
(he rest of the party hurrying out into
the hall.
Vera cume forw;..d with swift,
clastic stride. Willi u glance of shuddering pity at "lhe scarred face she
laid a hand on Ruvenspur's arm,
"My dream." she whispered. "It
may be the hand of God. Oli, let him
stay!"
"There is no place, here for Ralph
Ravenspur," llie old man cried.
The outcast slill fumbled his way
forward. A sudden light of intelligence flasned over Gordon us ho looked curiously at his brother.
"I think, sir," he said, "Unit my
brother is suffering I'rom some great
affliction. Ralph, what is it? Why
do you feel for things in that, way?"
"1 must," the "wanderer replied. "1
know every inch of tlie castle. 1 could
Iind my way in the darkest night over
every nook and corner. Father, 1 have
como back to you. 1 was only to
eome back to you if 1 were in sore
need or if 1 were deeply afflicted.
Look at me! Does my face t_l you
nothing'.'"
"Your face is���is dreadful. And.
as for your eyes, 1 cannot see tbem."
"You cannot, see tbem," Ralpn said
in that dreadful, thrilling, strangled
whisper, "because 1 have no sight;
because I am blind."
Without a word Ravenspur caught
his unhappy son by the hand and led
hint to the dining room, the family
following in awed silence.
CHAPTER III.
The Cry in the Night
The close clutch of the silence lay
over the castlo like the restless horror that it wus. Tho caressing drowsiness of healthy slumber was never
for the hapless Ravenspurs now. They
clung round the ingle nook till llie
last moment; they parted with n
sigh and a shudder, knowing that lhe
morrow might find one facing missing, one voice silenced lor ever.
Marion clone wus really cheerful;
her smiling face, her gentle courage
were as the cool breath of the north
wind to the others. But for her, they
would have gone mad with tlie haunting horror long since.
Siie was one of the last to go. She
still sat pensive in tlie ingle, her
hands clasped behind her head, her
eyes gazing with fascinated astonishment at Ralph Ravenspur.
In some strange, half defined fashion it seemed to her that she had
seen a face scarred and barred like
lhat before. And in the same vague
way the face reminded her of her native India.
It was a strong face, despite the
blight that suffering hud laid upon
it. The lips were lirm and Straight,
tlie sightless eyes seemed to be seeking for something, hunting as a blind
wolf might have done. The long,
slim, damp lingers twitched convulsively, feeling upwards and around as
If iu search of something,
Marion shuddered as she Imagined
lliose hooks of steel pressed about
her throat, choking the life nut of
hor.
"Where are you going to sic p?"
Ravenspur   asked   abruptly.
'Ill my old room," Ralph replied.
"Nobody need trouble about me. T
can Iind my way about tlie castle as
well as if I had my eyes. After all I
have endured, a blanket on the floor
will he a couch of down."
"You tme not afraid of tlie family
terror?"
Ralph laughed, lie laughed hard
down in his throat, chuckling horribly.
"1 am afraid of nothing," he said;
"if you only know what I know you
would not wish to live. I tell yon
I would sit and see my right arm
burnt, off with slow tire if 1 count wipe
out the things I have seen in the last
five years! I heard of the family
fetish at Bombay, and that was why
1 came home. 1 prefer a slumbering
hell to a roaring one."
lie spoke as if half to himself. His
words were enigmas to the, Interested
listeners; yet, Wild as they seemed,
they were cool am', collected."
"Some day you shall tell us your
adventures," Ravenspur said not unkindly, "how you lost your sight, and
whence came those strange disfigurements."
"That you will never know," Ralph
replied. '"Ah, there are more things
in heaven and earth than are dreamt
of in our narrow and spacious philr
osophy. There are some things it is
impossible to speak if, and my trouble
ls one of them.   Only to one man
could 1 mention it, and whether "ho is
alive ur uead  I   do  nol   know."
.Marion rose. The strangely uttered words made her feel slightly hysterical. She belli over Ravojispur and
kissed him loiliu.'. Moved by a
strong impulse of pity, she wuuld
have done the same by her uncle
Ralph, but thai lie seemed to divine
lier presence and her Intention, The
long, slim hands went  up.
"Ynu musi mil kiss uie, my child,"
he said. "I alu nol lil In he louclied
by pure lips like youi .   Good-night."
Marion turned away, chilled and
disappointed,    she    wondered    why
Ralph spoke like llllll, why ho shuddered at her approach as il' she liad
beeu an unclean thing. Hut lu that
In,use of singular happenings, one
Btrango matter mure or lesi was nothing."
"The light of my eyes." Ravenspur
murmured, "After Vera, Ihe creature
I   lflve  besl  on  carta.     What  should
we do without her."'
"What, Indeed." Ralph said quietly, "I cannot see. bill I can feel what
she is lo all of yon Good-night, lather, ami I hunk you."
Kavenspur strode off wiih a nol unkindly nod. As a matter of [act, he
was more moved by llie return ol' the
wanderer and bis evident sufferings
and misforliiiics than he eared to confess, lie brooded over these strange
things till ut length in- lapsed Into
troubled and uneasy slumber.
The Intense gripping silence deepened. Ralph Ruvcnspur slill sat iu
(lie ingle wilb Ills fnce bent, upon Ihe
glowing logs as il' lie could see, and
as If he was seeking l'or some inspiration in llie sparkling crocus  Maine.
Then without making lite sligliiesl
noise, lie crept across tlie ball, feeling
liis way along with his linger lips lo
Uu1 lauding above,
Ile hail made no idle boast, lie
knew every Inch of the castle. Like
a cat he crept to liis own room, and
there, merely discarding his coal and
boots, he took a blanket I'rom the bed.
Into the corridor lie stepped and
lying down under Ihe hangings of
Cordova leather, wrapped himself up
cocoon I'asi.ion iu his blanket and
dropped inlo a sound sleep. The
mournful silence brooded, lhe rats
scratched behind the oaken panelled
walls.
Then out of the throat of tlie darkness came a stilled cry. lt was the
lighting rattle made by tlie strong
man suddenly deprived of the power
to breathe.
Again it. came, and this time more
loudly, with a ring of despair in it.
In the dead silence it seemed to fill
the whole house, but the walls were
thick, and beyond the corridor there
was no cognisance of anything being
in tlie least wrong.
But the man in tbe blanket against
tlio urras heard it and struggled to
his feet. A long period of vivid personal danger liad sharpened his
senses, ills knowledge of woodcraft
enabled him to locate the cry to a
yard.
".My father," he whispered; "I nm
only just iu time."
(To he Continued)
Prohibition In Iceland
Incidental to the project of personal reform through national prohibition It is to be noted that the parliament of Iceland has made n law
forbidding tlie sale ol' alcoholic liquors witl.in its 'jurisdiction. While
Iceland is u Danish colony and subject to the authority of King Christian, its parliament has control of
local aaffirs, and the experiment now
undertaken undoubtedly will be carried out without interference.
It has slgnflicauce more especially,
because of the recent autocratic edict
making "dry" tho great territory of
the empire of Russia. So far 'tills
latter seems to have proved successful. Iceland, with some 85,000 inhabitants, ought to be able to control the
matter as effectively as lias beep
done wiih the. millions of vodka drink-
rs in Russia.
It is not an affair of local option,
however, but of naticnal preference,
and in this respect it may be instructive in its operation- Boston Post.

Good Advice for the Country School
Prof. Chas. W. Eliot, Noted American Educationalist,
Believes that every Child should Learn the Elements
of Agriculture
I am glutl lo bear that The Bunker-
Farmer is to deal in its August issue
with common school education in this
country, especially in lho rural districts.
There is great need l'or a thorougl
reconstruction of tbo programs of thf
rural schools. The instruction wilier.
they now provide iu reading, writing
and arithmetic should not be diminished in amount, hut altered in nature. The greater part of the direct
instruction should relate to natural
history, agriculture and farm life;
and tlie books used for teaching
reading and spelling should be ou
these subjects, with additional primers on geography, American history,
and <-ivies. Tbe arithmetic should
be contined to the simplest examplcl
in addition, subtraction, multiplication
and division., decimals being mudf
familiar almost from the start; for
the well-taught child will learn about
tenths and hundredths as quickly a��
anout tens and hundreds. All the
child's reading, and all the teacher'1
oral instruction, should be illustrates
with concrete examples, and eveij
child should be trained to see, hear,
and touch accurately, and to remember what it thus learns by observation.
An important part of the school program should he devoted to llie traininr
of the senses, and to this kind of training of the memory. No matter what
system be employed in teaching reading, every child should learn tlio alphabet by heart; and whenever a change is made in the system of teaching the
children to write���such changes have been too frequent of late���the change
should apply only to beginners, and not to the children who have already
practiced long tlie rejected system. In the last two years of the rural
school's course, every child should loam the elements of agriculture una.
gardening, and should have a garden plot to cultivate. Prizes should ho offered for the best plots of vegetables, small fruits, and flowers. Every boy
should be 'given practice in the use of carpenter's tools; and every gliO
should lie taught lo sew, cook and can fruits and vegetables. Reading aloud
and singing thnuld be a substantial part of every rural school's program.
The practice in English composition should mainly .consist of writing descriptions of what the child itself sees, hears or touches.

Canada during tlie year amounted to
2,088 miles. On the basis that a railway line serves the territory for ten
miles on each side, this new mileage
has brought, railway service lo -11,760

To Assist Farmers of West
Banks Will Send Them Circulars on
tbe Moisture Problem
The chartered banks in tlie prairie
provinces have jointly decided to
send through tlie mails this spring
one hundred thousand circular letters
lo farmers, urging them to do the
necessary work to preserve the moisture in the soil. This is a step which
lias never before been taken in Ihe
history of banking in litis province.
Tlie message to fanners was prepared
by the department of agriculture of
Saskatchewan and it is intended as a
last word to grain growers before
they go on land in llie spring. Package's of these clroulaVs, with the best
advice of experts in grain growing,
will lie sent to hundreds of branch
banks and I'rom these branches copies
will be mailed to thousands of customers. Copies of the circulars will
also be posted in many public places
in the towns where the hanks have
these branches.
"There is no sentiment In this proposed action of the banks," sa'd a
leading banker. ".Many thousands of
grain growers in the prairie provinces
owe money to the banks and we are
naturally anxious that they should all
be In a position to pay this next fall.
The condition this spring will be veyr
much better than it was last spring
In the matter of moisture. If sufficient work is done by our grain growers to preserve lhe moisture that is
already in the ground, a failure of
the crop of 1915 from drought would
be impossible. We are therefore urging the farmer to prevent erapora
tlon and preserve moisture."

Use for Flax Straw
May Develop a Linen Industry ia
Western Canada
An outcome of the war in Belgium
may be the transferring of an important linen industry to Canada. The
nioveinenmt is being projected bj
Belgians with a view of relieving tlie
suffering among the unemployed    of
lhat country.
Western Canada offers special opportunities lo the llax industry, whicli
has been -brought to a slate ol' high
standard in Belgium, but owing to the
war is now at a standstill.'The milking of linen has bei 11 a large and Important industry in the little country
that has made so heroic _ showing in
tbe present, war. A large number of
women are or were employed in Ibe
manufacture of linen nnd they are
thrown out of work. In order to organize the industry In the we3t ot
Canada, efforts will lie made lo get ia
touch with the large Belgian manufacturers. Thousands of women are
thrown out of employment and these
could well emigrate to Wetsern Canada and there find the very work waiting for them to whicli they have been
used all their lives. It is expected
that should the movement from Belgium be affected in any large proportions, a large number of male experts
will also take advantage of the new
country.
Flax straw of an estimated value
running into millions of dollars is
burnt every year in Western Canada
for lack of facilities to utilize it.

sold as slaves, The letter snys, in
pari:
"There was a large canvas lying in
her bow, and when Ibis was raised we
found the front of tlio ship packed
witli slave women and littlo boys.
The poor women were scared nearly
to death. The .avers had lold them
we would out oft their heads If we
caught them, and threatened lo knife
tlieiu if thoy moved under the canvas.
"We had to lower a boat and lift
them into it, and then raise them In
the boat on board. So weak and
cramped were they that tbey could
hardly stand. Some men and boys |
taken off were in much better condition, although they had been chained
in the ship eight days. The last two
days they had been without food. The
sailors from our ship had . to pick
them up bodily and carry (hem below.
"When we landed, these poor people, after they had learned we were
tlieir .saviors, fell down at tlio feet of
the sailors and kissed their boots. Instead of going into slavery they will
be turned over to the convent and
educated and then scut back to their
native homes in Africa."

The Doctor's Wife
Agrees With  Him About Food
A trained nurse says: "In tbe practice of my profession I have found so
many poinis in favor of Grape-Nuts
Pood that 1 unhesitatingly recommend
it to ull liy .patients.
"It. is delicate and pleasing to the
palate (an essential in food l'or the
sick) and can be adapted to ill ages,
being softened Willi milk or cream
for babies or the aged when deficiency
of tooth renders mastication impossible. For fever patients or those on
liquid diet 1 find Grape-Nuts and albumen water very nourishing nud refreshing.
"This recipe is my own idea and is
made as follows: Soak a teaspoonful
of Grape-Nuts in a glass of water for
an hour, strain and serve with the
beaten white of an egg and a spoonful of fruit juice for flavoring. This affords a great deal of nourishment
that even the weakest stomach can
assimilate without any distress.
"My husband is a physician and he
uses Grape-Nuts himself and orders it
many times for his patients.
"Personally I regard a dish of
Grape-Nuts wita fresh or stewed fruit
as the ideal breakfast for anyone���
well or sick."
In stomach trouble, nervous prostration, etc., a 10 day trial of Grape-

Another Liberal candidatt, Mr.
G. G. McGreer, of Richmond,
makes the statement that the Government was responsible for the
Dominion Trust failure, and
Government should reimburse the
sufieres. If the Liberals should
happen to win the eleotion their reimbursing policy will cost the
country more money than the railway policy of the present Government about which the Liberals rave.

The city of Vancouver declared
Tuesday a public holiday iu order
that the citizens night witness the
parade of the Rotary Club and attend the opening of the ball game.
Fifty thousand boxes of apples
were Imported into British Columbia during the month of March
which should hav. been grown at

of the Fruit Department, says that
Grimes Golden is the best all round
apple to grow in B, G.
As Sanford Evans says, business
statmanship applied to practical
problems is what Canada is badly
in need of. Too much of our
ability and capital are now devoted
to the task of getting between producer and consumer and taking
toll. And the producers stand for
it, ��� Montreal Herald-Telegraph.
dent McPhee stated that this valley
was capable of producing far more
than it does, and would produce
more providing suitable markets
could be secured conveniently.
He believed that the country around
Prince Rupert would take all our
surplus if the boats plying there
could be induced to call at local
points for orr supplies.
Mr, W, H. Hay ward M. I.. A.,
was the speaker of the evening and
in a clear and convincing manner
told the audience that ihey would have
to ent out selfishness and co-operate with
each other if they were to  make  a   sr.c-
that ilvss'" r'l'siu_ and marketing  produce.
,,'..,! He said that only i 1-2 per  cent   ol the
I farm produce used in B. C, wot home
grown, We send upwards of 24 million
: dollars to other countries lor foodstuffs.
II halt of this was retained iu lhe province there would he a great difference,
farming conditions would have to
change from drudging to living, In
this province all the laud has to lie
either cleared or dyked, and liolli were
expensive. The Agricultural Credit Act
would enable farmers lo borrow money
on tlieir cleared land to clear more land
etc., and the loans would extend from 3
to 36 1-2 years. He appealed to the
farmers to do better farming and better
business, and instanced the case of Den
mark, which bad by co-operation in
Agriculture raised herself fiom a bankrupt slate in ISS3 to third richest per-
capila stale ill tbe world.

New Westminster Market
New Westminster, April 17.���
Unexpectedly tlie price of eggs
took a sudden jump yesterday al
the city market and the retail price
prevailed at _o cents a dozen, but
the wholesale price remained firm
at the old quotation of 30 cents a
dozen. At the retail figure there
was a large number disposed of.
The rise in price is due to the fact
that a lai ge number of people are
preserving eggs and the dealers are
putting them away in cold storage.
Potatoes offered all the way from
$13 to $16 a ton found few -bidders
and the supply far exceeded the demand. There was a total absence
of pork, and a very small amount
of yeal.
The Board of Trade's "Potlatch"

cation. Thousands of dollars are
spent by our Governments to teach
us how to care for and feed calves
and chickens, but did you ever
hear of one dollar being spent to
teach Canadian mothers how to
care for their babies either before
cr after birth ?
Thousands ot babies die every
year because their mothers do not
know how to care for their children. How many calves or chickens
die from the same reasons? Not
many. Why? Because we have
made a study of their requirements
and know ' ow they should be cared
for, and because our Greater has
given them the power to help themselves to a certain degree almost
from birth,
Babies not being able to help
themselves, there is all the more
reason why mothers should fit
themselves to help the babies,
What chance have babies to become
healthy Canadian citizens if
mothers do not know how to care
for them?
Our Govern ments spend thousands of dollars to deal witli hog
cholera, but where is there a dollar
spent to stamp out tuberculcsis in
babies ?
Even the doctors do uot seem to
study the baby; their time is taken
up doctoring adults that, had they
been given proper car; when babies, would have grown up healthy
and strong, and would not haye
needed a doctor so frequently,
i Babies are not born "strong'' or
���'weakly;" they are born just as
their mothers bruoght them into the
world, and even the weakest little
mortal can be made healthy and
strong if its mother will only use
common sense and good judgment
iu the care of her child.
Mothers should join in the movement for Better Canadian Babies
and learn from those who have
made a study of babies just what to
do aud what not to do to have
theni grow up healthy happy children.

Aii encouraging note is struck in
this issue of the Telephone Talk,
the magazine published by the B.
C. Telephone Company. It points
out that the net increases iu the
number of subscribers took place
in Match, as compared with February, as well as in several exchanges
of the company. A net gain is
also noted for the province as a
whole, This would indicate that
the province has rei-umed its forward march.
That steady expansion is expected i.s further shown by the announcement that the Telephone
Company has in hand estimates of
$32,796 in Vancouver; $1,790 in
North-Vancouver; $22,145 in Victoria, and $5,750 in Nanaimo. as
well as improvements in hand at

could be made, and also has been
doing work en many of its exchange buildings so that everything will be maintained at that

An item of interest to playgoeis
is the announcement that the "1915
Follies" have been looked to appear
at the Opera House on Thursday
next 29th inst. This talented company appeared nightly for seven
successive weeks at the Imperial
Theatre, Vancouver, and were then
booked for all vacant dates at the
Royal Victoria Theatre. They
have also appeared at Nanaimo
and Duncan, resufting in bookings
for return engagements, and substantiating their claim to be "a show
with a reputation." The show is
produced by Mr. B. C. Hilliam,
whose connection with Steinway
Hall. London, and the London
Provincial Ballad Co., places him
in the front rank of musicians and
composers. Included in the company are such well known artistes
as Miss _nueLochead, the soprano
of the Pacific Coast, Miss Millicent
Ward, late of the F. R Benson
Company, Miss Eleanor Harrison,
the combined Louie Freear, Connie
Kdiss of the West, Miss Gwendoline
Moore late of the Sanford Players,
Mr. Henry Anstie from the Criterion, London, and Mr, Victor Dyer
who was the comedian of the Norman V, Norman Players for come
years in England. It is safe to say
that uo company has received more
favorable press comments than have
the "1915 Follies" at the hands of
the Vancouver and Victoria papers.

How Daylight Varies
Morning Licjht is Found More Intense Than Afternoon
The variation of daylight in groon-
houses anil Kindred phenomena have
been Investigated in a. very thorough
manner hy leading scientists, The
measurements of light intensity were
made with a form of chemical photometer, and it was found that morning light was, on an average, 10
per cent, mure Intense, than afternoon light. Tills difference varies
with tlie season, in some months
reaching "0 per cent, llonce, other
things being equal, a crop will show
u greater development on an east
than a west exposure. The light-
transmitting properties of different
kinds of j.lass vary greatly. Thus
the loss of light from .lass as compared with outdoor light ranges all
the way from 13 to ;it> per cent, or
more. The practice of lapping the
panes causes au average Iobs of
light of about 11 per cent. The transmission of light naturally increases as
the angle of the roof more nearly coincides with a right angle to the sun's
rays. The reflection of light from
surfaces is another important factor.

One. of the most interesting deals

Permanently Cured Through
the Use of Dr. Williams'
Pink Pills
Neuralgia is not a disease���it Is
only a symptom, hut a most, painful
one. It is the . urest sign that your
blood is weak, watery and impure,
and lhat for this reason your nerves
are literally starving. Had blood is
tlie sole cause uf the piercing pains
of neuralgia���good rich blood is tlie
only cure, lu Ihis you have the reason why Dr. Williams' l'ink Pills cure
neuralgia. They arc the only medicine
that contain in tlie correct proportions the elements needed tc make
rich, red blood. This rich blood
reaches the root of the trouble,
soothes lhe jangled nerves, drives
away the nagging, stabbing pain and
braces up your health in other ways
as well. Here is proof���Mr. C. .1. Lee,
Vatcltell, Out., says; "For several
years I was troubled at intervals with
neuralgia in the head and chest. The
pain I suffered at limes was most intense. I was continually doctoring
for the trouble, but found nothing to
give ine permanent relief until I began the use of Dr. Williams' fink
l'ills. Thanks to this medicine my
blood has been restored to a healthy
condition and every symptom of the
trouble h'as disappeared. 1 can ths re-
fore, with confidence recommend Dr.

Money in Wheat
Farmers Pocket a Billion on Wheat,
Says This Expert
One billion dollars and more will
have been poured into the strong
boxes of farmers of the country whin
all the IUM wheal crop is sold. Thu
estimate wiys given by ii. w. Snow,
expert grain statistician of Bartlett &
j Krazier, to the Chicago Tribune. Tiie
enormous   sum   which  grain  raisers
\ are getting today for their wheat will
total nearly twice as much as the
1.(100,001.000 and more which they received for their besl wheat in 1913,
i aecordlng to Expert Snow's compilation.
'Pile price of wheat on Dec. 1 is F.I-
| ways taken as a general average of
��� wheat prie s for the year.   Seventy-
| nine cents was the price on Dec. 1,
1913,   Because of Ihe record breaking
1 advances of wheat prices since tha
outbreak of the war, and since Jan. 1,
1915, especially, the average for 1911,

by the Dee. 1, 11)11, price, whicli was

"Tlie  usual  rule,"  said  Mr.  Snow,
I "is that wheat does not oegiu to advance in price until the bulk of tho
crop has left the hands of lho farmer.
But in 1914 Hie direct op'posite was
. the case. Tiie great benefit of the
advance undoubtedly has gone to tho
men who actually produced tho
wheat, wliile tlie amount of toll taken
i by the middlemen is relatively much
i less than usual."
Self-Reliance
Man to be great must be self-re-
liaul. Though ! may not be so iu
all things he must he self reliant in
the one in which he would he great.
This self reliance is not the self-
sufficiency of conceit, lt is daring
to stand alone. Be an oak, not a
vine. Be ready to give support, but
do not crave It; do not be dependent
on it. To develop your true sen reliance, you must see from the very he-
ginning that life is a battle you must
light for yourself; you must be your
own soldier. You cannot buy a substitute, you cannot win a reprieve,
you can never be placed on the retired list.

lu the "English Review," Austin
Harrison, lhe editor, discusses al

only too fi'ei|iieuily manifestations of I admonition, "Potty ns such a detail

themselves like the "Huns" in I'hina, torpuri. of the military doctrine of
and to "giiln the reputation of -\tilln." , 'striking terror' whence it derives."
This brutality is the essential spirit Trivial and droll as these idlosyn-
of Gorman militarism, and through oracles may seem, they .in none the
ihl army has, Mr. Harrison Insists, less characteristic of tho German
pel moated Into all grades of German [ spirit of life, which "In the modern
civil life,
'I'm- Individual German ls v,ot cruel

ls rather a method, He would refuse
to attend a bullfight or cockfight, or
any spectacle of deliberate cruelty,
but he would think nothing of cutting
hi1 horse's hack Into bleeding weals
lt the animal jibbed or shied or throw
him. Mr. Harrison has heard Germans that complained bitterly of
pigeon shooting at Monte Car.o, emphatically justify the right of soldiers
to shoot at sight all suspected of
franctirage, and to destroy any village or town where civilian acts of
aggression had been established.
Prompted largely by the kaiser's per-
Eistent preaching, the Germans have
educated themselves to the army
standard of "ruthU-ss attainment of
the eml In object"���a principle that
finds expression throughout Germany
ln tho phrase "Sieh imponieren" to
assert, oneself regardless of the
means or cost. .
This attitude has a terminology of
Its own. To llx a man with the eyes
ls a recognized practice, and has been
the solo cause of many n fatal duel.
Another practice which hns come
down from the army to the workshop
is what drill sergeants term "rolling
the eyes." Absurd as it may appear
this rolling the eyes is," says Mr. Harrison," "a recognized German sign of
military garb bus led to a social system of formality, lickspittle, bul.ying',
and brutality, inconceivable to anyone that has not lived in Germany
and studied the system at work."
The cult of bruality has been
preached for fifteen years, not only in
the army and on political platforms,
but from university chairs, and, according to Mr. Harrison, produced
serious social disease in the nation.
Brutal outrages upon children have
become chronic in the lower classes,
and sex perversitief in the upper.
Strangely brutal crimes have become
so common as to "constitute unmistakable scientific ground for speaking
of the patheologlcaj state of Germany
ns the direct product of the imperial physical force doctrine." In
the German armies we are fighting a
doctrine of brutality, the national attitude. Though 1 llnd lt hard to
credit the reports of German soldiers
firing under cover of flags cf truce
and the Red Cross, I know that tlie
Germans will not r. .ly wage war
brutality but p'tlessly, as their emperor .has frequently behooved them
to. We at any rate, will keep the'
flag clean. Het us try and remember
that the Germans are .������ misguided

Should Encourage
the Cordage Industry
Claim is Advanced That More Protection  is  Necessary
At a lime when the ways and means
of   Internal   revenue   are   being  coll-J
sidered, attention i   directed to the
twine   and   cordage   Industry.   Those
now engaged In the Industry in Canada claim that It Buffers from class,
legislation, and  that  the  belter sup-]
port of a healthy home industry rather   than   i nco.iragiug     importations,
would result iu retaining tor circulation   iu   Canada,  a  large  amount  of i
money that is now lost lo the coun-
I ry.
Some seventy-live per cent, of the
twine  and cordage  requirements of
Canada are now on tho free list, and
considerably over half of the consumption is imported.   Twenty-live or
more     cordage  and   twine   factories j
haie operated in Canada during lhe'
pnsi twenty years,   und the number I
of failures would clearly Indicate that i
lhe   industry   has   been    beset  with
many difficulties,   lt Unstated that
nearly all of the  pliuils  which have
ceased to operate have gone out of
business since the free listing of most
of their products has come lulo effect. As many of the American cordage makeiB, with ti much wider market, have ceased operations, little
criticism of the failure of Canadian
factories to succeed can he made in
view of the greater difficulties with
whicli they havo had to contend.
The manufacture of binder twine iu
Canada has proven to be unusually
speculative and risky under existing
conditions, and It Is believed that
some readjustment of the tariff should
be made to encourage t lis industry.
Put on a paying basis, with n ever-
widening' market through the increase in agricultural and fishing
pursuits, an I dustry giving employment to a large number of people
would result, and large sums of
money would be kept for circulation
in Canada, that are now expended on
foreign . products and consequently
lost to Canada.

dominated by one power. The sixteenth was Spain's century, the
seventeenth Holland's. The eighteenth belonged to France, and the
nineteenth to England. Now It was
clear, as the nineteenth century drew
near its end that England alone could
not hope for another term of supremacy. But England had brought into
being an jmpire, world-wiae, immense
In population and in wealth, lt seemed that the sceptre���not of actual
rule, of course, not of physical or
material domination, but of i\lluence
by character���might pass from the
Mother to the children.
German;- alone disputed this order
of succession. Thut Ib why the world
is at war toiiay. But Germany cannot conquer tho British empire; she
Is breaking her nails against a rock.
Therefore to that empire will belong
tho Twentieth Century, and to Hussia
wheu she has awakened the Intelligence of her peasant millions and developed her resources, will surely belong the tweuty-llrst, Let us both
recognize this and live at peace.
Wo have in truth, moro in common with Russians than with any
other nation. Wo are, tor instance,
obstinate and Inconsistent; so are
they. If we '.aunt them with sticking
to their old caleacar, which is thirteen days behind everyone else's, they
can point in reply to our pig headed
and far more inconvenient retention
of peculiar measure of money and
weight and length, in plao of the
decimal system used ty everyone
else. When we complain that their
alphabet has thirty-six lstters in it
their retort is: "It enables ua to spell
bs we pronounce, whereas your spelling and pronunciation are not related
at all!" Englishmen who are rash
enough to pity Russians because they
"lack political freedom" are reminded that there Is no Mrs. Grundy ln
Russia to cheek personal freedom
With a far more galling bond,
denies that his country is behind the
other great powers both in the common level of intelligence and in mechanical conveniences. This has advantages, however. It is annoying
that _ etrograd should be so badly
paved, that laundries should make a
practice of keeping your "washing"
for three weeks instead of one, that
there should be no regularity in the
postal or in any other service, whether private or state. But these are
trifles ln the general scheme of
life. If against such drawbacks we
set the comforts of strong nerves,
few cities, no rush from tho land, no
a "struggle j industrial weakening of the greater
! part of the population, the balance
will scarcely go against these, wheth
er we consider general happiness only
or take into account the health of
generations to ccme.
They have their effect as well upon
the solidarity of national sentiment.
Every Russian wants to free Constantinople from the Tur!:. Some
want this because Russia needs an
outlet into the Mediterranean, and
can not any longer submit to the
Dardanelles being treated as private
property. Some see that the chief
development of Russia's natural
wealth must be in the south, and believe that destiny is forcing her
towards the Golden Horn. Most want
it hecause they '.n.ve been taught that
Chrits Is dishonored bv the worship
of Islam in the Cathedral of St. Sophia.
Well, what are wo going to do
about it? Keep up our old poliey of
suspicion? Attempt to deny Hussia
that for which si.J nrdently longs?
Bleat In the accents of Iho 'eighties
about the highroad o India? Or with
frank nnd friendly agreement tell our
ally. "Wo shall not stand in your
way?" If we do not thero is trouble
ahead for everybody. I should not be
doing my duty !.' I did not say that
Russians are watching very closely
for signs of Engalnd's temper i_4
this matter of Constantinople and the
Dardanelles.
Kaiser Talks About Culture
War Lord Says That No Matter How
He Feels He Never Loses His
Temper
Tlie Neueste Nachrichten has published an interview with Dr. Ludwig
Ganghofer, the German author, in
which is given a further account of
tlie writer's visit to Emperor William
at the imperial field headquarters, Dr.
Ganghofer says:
"I heard and saw an example of'the
emperor's quiet patience with slanderous statements which should be
instructive for us all. Remarks of
such a nature embitter him, but even
in his greatest excitement he never
Ipses the mastery of his tongue. 1
heard him say in such a case. "That
is strong, but it is silly also. It is
fortunate thut truth is always wiser
in the long run and that it has longer
legs.'
"Nevertheless there is a slight vibration in his majesty's voice when
the subject is our Germanic cousins
across tho channel.
"In a conversation with the representative of a neutral state the emperor once said: "You ure a sportsman. When in a horse race, the weaker animals gradually drop out and
only the two strongest are left, have
you ever seen the jockey of the horse
which threatens to fall behind strike
with his whip at that jockey of the
more ambitious and stronger animal?"
"The man questioner shook his
head. The emperor continued: 'Why
does England strike at us? Why does
she not rather strike at her own
weakening horse'.''
Yes, other words of the emperor
must be remembered.
"On one occasion lie made this re-
murk: 'Many people who judge us
Germans solely by outward polish
and term us barbarians, seem not to
know that there is a great difference
between civilization and "kultur."
England certainly is a highly civilized
nation. One notices that always in
the drawing room, but to have "kultur" means to possess deep conscience and high morals. My Germans
have conscience and morale.
"When they say hi other lands that
it was my intention to found a world
cipire. that is the funniest nonsense
ever said about me. Bub in the morale, industry and conscience of the
German people is to be found a conquering power that will open the
world for them.'"

Russia Buys Vessel
Takes Newfoundland Steamer to Do
Some Ice Breaking
The steel steamer Lintrose, built
for the Held Newfoundland Company
in 1913, has been purchased by the
Russian government for service as
an ice breaker in the White Sea. The
vessel will replace the Canadian government ice breaker Earl Grey, which
proved inadequate to cope with the
severe conditions, and Is now frozen
ln at Archangel. The Lintrose has
sailed for Philadelphia, where it is
understood she will take on supplies
and passengers before proceeding to
Europe.
The Lintrose has hec-n running between Port aux Basques, at the southwest extremity of Newfoundland, and
North Sydney, C.B., and has shown
herself sufficiently powerful to plow
through the ice of Cabot Strait and
mako nightly trips throughout the
winter months. The steamer registers
1,616 tons,  and  ls  255 feet long.

'these dangers would not exist if we

admits lhat 'the decisive change does

They antagonized continental powers
by the increase of the army, but it
was the naval movement which most
arrested the attention of the world
and created that spirit of hostility to
German ambition which has found
expression ln neutral countries. This
effect was produced less, perhaps, by
the building of ships than by propaganda which was encouraged by
Germany and Admiral Von Tirpitz.
Americans, for   ins'ance,   were   not

This transaction, which was unanimously agreed upon by the three ministers, will have the further effect it
lightening tlie burden of Russia's indebtedness and of contributing to a
better rate of exchange.

vcars that I have had the pleasure
of canvassing the north in the Conservative interests I want to say
that I have never seen the district
so unanimous in su] pert of the
party standard bearer as it is at
present. Tbis talk of defection is
all rot. There are about three men
who lead the .Stewart cohorts up
there uud everyone of these three is
supporting bim not on principle
but because they either can't get a
government position or have held
one and been dismissed for incompetency. Tbe elec'ors know tbem
too well to lake Ihcm seriously and
so far their defection has resulted
in added strength for .Mr, Manson
and the Conservative patty i.s well
tid of men of th.ir calibre." Dr.
Jamieson stated that from reports
that bad reached him from tbe
various locals there was absolutely
no material opposition to Mr Man-
son and he was convinced that the
majority for that gentleman given
in previous elections could not possibly fall down and Mr. Manson
would undoubtedly leal over all
opposition candidates. Ex-Aid,
Wood when interviewed said that
although he was comparita vel. a
stranger in the district he had nevertheless been in the political arena
for a long peroid, ill fact had been
one of the men who had first declared for party linos iu the province, und if his past experience
counted for anything be certainly
could see nothing else but a large
Manson majority iu the forth coming elect ion. He was quite surprised
at the immense natural resources of
the district and was more surprised
at the feeling amongst the men
with reference to Mr. Manson, On
every sid; you dull hear the
statement that as long a ''Old
Mike" would slay the loggers
would wene tooth and nail to put
him at the head of the poll. Mr.
Wood stated that iu all his experience he had never seen a member
who appeared to be so close to the
hearts of his constituents, aud the
statement of Mr. Stewart that he
had heard since arriving in town
saying that li_ would carry the
north, appeared to him a case of
pure bluff, The party after going

New
Coal Cutter
In No.
6 Mine
Something i.ew iu the form of
coal cutting machinery was introduced into No. 6 mine last Monday
This mine is being opened up on
the longwall system in order to
give this new coal cutter ideal conditions to work under, and the results so far have .iiore than justified the introduction of this machinery. The name of the machine is the Sullivan Bar Coal Cutter, using alternating current. It
travels along the face at the rate of
80 feet per hour; makes a mining
6 feet deep and 3 inches high, thus
producing a very small persentage
of slack, and allows the miners to
more efficiently remove the rock
bands. No powder is used to
shoot the coal down, with there-
suit that the coal falls away from
the roof in huge blocks, as high as
10 tons in weight. These machines will improve the quality of
the output, and are capable of producing 350 tons in 8 hours.
In the Matter of the " Municipal Act," and
