After a long lime, Mr. Sunningley
rose, sighed deeply, and weni Into the

"Don't ynu, darling'.' What a dear

"Barbara, 1 want lo know one. thing.
I have had an interview- wltb Mrs,

"Ob!" said Barbara. "Mrs. Cray
doesn't like me."
"She does and she doesn't, Barbara.
It would be exceedingly difficult for

to like you, my little girl, But, as a

"That's a gmiil idea." said Suillllllgley. "Bui ihe faci is, Barbara, I

"I am afraid I must, my child, lor

The woman who had followed Barbara, liad dono so at first unintentionally. Then she observed something
in tlie girl's face and small dainty
figure which caused lier heart to beat
The woman knew at the moment
when Mrs. Gray turned and spoke to
ber that she was looking at her own
child. The child sbe bad lost seventeen years ago. As she tottered down
the street after Mrs. Gray's reproof,
she clenched her bands���her brow
darkened-she was making up lier
mind. This woman had apartments in
Cliesney Street���sbe also had other
rooms in another part of town.
She was known in the place where
she lived as Mrs. Florence Dunbar.
Wherever she lived she ruled���she
was much feared by those neighbors
who were as bad as herself- -she lived
on the fear she inspired, and in consequence could do pretty much what
she liked. But, on the olher hand,
there were some people she dreaded���
Henry Ferris lirst and foremost; and
now the two lawyers, .Messrs. Parkes
and Sunningley. She had seen mention of her husband's death in the
newspapers- for she was a well-read
and well educated woman���and nothing would induce her not to keep herself up lo the news of lhe day. On
reading of the death of lhe Rev.
Humphrey chance she fully expected
that her allowance would cease-���but
no, it was still sent regularly to the
General Post Office.
The woman was neither good nor
happy; she had lived a liad life, and
brought misery on others���she struggled over and over to retrain from
crime���-but all in vain. Crime pursued her���she could nol get awn;- from
it. or its dire consequences.
On the present occasion, as she
walked down tlie sloppy, dirty streets,
her heart was full of lier child���the
little dear one she had brought into
the. world���the best, part of her was
shaken to its depths. Sin repelled her
���for the time she wished to be good.
"I'll see her again���I'll see her
again," she murmured. "Yes, if I die
for it, I'll gel lier; is she not mine?
Darling that she. is, that disagreeable
woman shall not keep her���she knows
nothing of my past life, she shall
never know. I'll he good for her sweet
sake.    .My littlo one, iny little one."

turned down Chesney Street just as
Kate Jessop was coming home. Kate
had a half day off; this usually happened on Wednesdays, when most of
tho shops in the neighborhood were
shut. Kate had been very angry indeed with Barbara for giving up all
acquaintance with her. Bul she was
nn match wiih Mrs. Russell and, as
she had been forbidden Ibe house, and
did not dare to show her face where
Mrs. Russell told her not to come, sho
thought less of Barbara as time wore
on. It so happened, however, on this
special evening; after having liad a
right good time with her favorite
young man���she had gone witli him a
long way on the outside of a 'litis in
the direction of Kew- she had come
back hungry, and somehow' her
thoughts reverted io little Barbara
"It wor lively in tlie country," she
said to herself, .lust then Mrs. Dunbar passed lier. Mrs. Dunbar walked
slowly, letting lier purple silk dress
trail on the muddy street. Her toque
had become slightly crooked. This
was after she had imbibed, a large
glass of whisky at a public-house near.
She tottered slightly. Kate Jessop
knew ber well���she was an habitue of
Chesney Street, and the best girls
there avoided lier. Kate was one of
those who did not eare to speak to
Mrs. Dunbar; she knew nothing of
her history, but every one said tbat
the woman was up to no good, ln
fact, it was whispered among tlie boys
and girls of Cliesney Street that sbe
had often seen the inside of a prison,
This Kate was quite sure of. She
hurried now, in order to get into lie.
own house; but Mrs. Dunbar called
after her���
"I want to speak to you, Miss Jessop."
"Indeed," said Kate, "and what may
you be wanting with me?"
Low as tlie miserable woman had
fallen, she had not lost the voice of a
lady, her accent, compared to Kate's
was extremely refined. Kate stopped
and looked at her.

Stirring Speech Delivered by Mr.
Lloyd George in Queen's Hall
"There is no man in this room who
has always regarded the prospects ef
engaging in a great war with greater
reluctance, with greater repugnance,
than 1 have done throughout the
whol: of my political life. There is no
man either inside or outside of this
room more convinced that we could
r.ot. have avoided it without national
dishonor, I am fully alive to the fact
that whenever a nation was engaged
in any war she has always invbked the
sacred name of honor. Many a crime
has been committed in its name; there
are some crimes lieing committed
now.   (Hear, bear).
"But all the same, national honor is
a reality, and uny nation that disregards it is doomed. Why is our honor
as a country involved in tills war?
Because In the llrst place we are
liou'nd  in nn  honorable obligation  '.o
defend the Independence, tho liberty,,
the integrity of a small neighbor, that i
has lived peaceably, but she could not j
have compelled us, because she was j
weak.    The man  who decline.. In dis-

'iiiered Into ibis treaty, a soil
etnii treaty, a lull llealy, to dole-id
Belgium und her Integrity. Our sign i i
lures are alLuliod lo tile document.
Our signatures do nol sland alone:
there. This was nol the only count .H
to defend the inlegrily of Belgium!
Russia, France, Austria ami Prussia [
are all there, Why did Ihey nol perform Hie obligation?   u is suggested
that when you quote Ibis treaty, it is
purely an excuse on onr pari. It is
onr low craft and cunning, just to
cloak our jealousy of a superior civilization we nre attempting io destroy.
"Our answer is tbe action we look
in 1870, Whal was thai'. .Mr. Glad-
stone was then  prime minister. Lord
Granville, i think, wus then foreign
secretary. I have never heard il alleged to their charge lhat the. were
ever Jingo. What did Ihey do in 1S70?
We called upou Ihe belligerent powers
lo respect thai treaty, We called up-1
ou [Trance, wc called upon Germany.
At lhai Hiiie, iiear iu mind, ihe greatest danger In Belgium came I'rom
France and not from Germany, We intervened to protecl Belgium against
France exactly as we are doing now lo

We invited both lhe belligerent powers lo state lhai tbey had no lllton-
Hon of violating Belgian territory.
What waa (he answer given by Bismarck? lie aid it was superfluous
In ask Prussia such a question 111 view
of the treaties in force, France gave I
a similar answer.
"We  received   the  thanks    al   lhat. j
lime of lhe Belgian people lor our Intervention 111 a very remarkable docu-|
ment.    This is a document addressed
hy   Ihe   municipality   of   Brussels     lo
Queen Victoria alter that Intervention,
" 'The great and noble people over
whose destinies you preside have just
given a further proof of its benevolent
sentiments towards this country. Tho
voice of the English nation has been
heard above tlie din of arms. It has assorted the principles of justice and
right. Next to the unalterable attachment ol' the Belgian people lo their independence the strongest sentiment
which tills their hearts is thai of an
imserlshable gratitude to tlie people
of Croat Britain.'
"That was in ISTO. Mark whal follows. Three or four days al'tor '.hat
document of thanks tlie French army
was wedged up against the Belgian
frontier. Every means of escape shut
up bv a ring of flame from Prussian
cannon. There was one way of escape. What was lhat? By violating
the neutrality of Belgium. What did
tbey do? The French ,on lhat occasion preferred ruin, humiliation to the
breaking of tlieir bond.
"The French Emperor, French marshals, 100,1100 gallant Frenchmen in
arms preferred to he carried captive
to tlie strange land of their enemy
rather than dishonor the name of tlieir
country. It Was the last French army
defeat. Had they violated Belgian
neutrality tlie whole history of that
war would have been changed. And
yet it was the interest of France to
break the treaty.   She did not do it.
"it is the interest of Prussia to
break the treaty, and she has done it.
(Shame!) Well, why? She avowed it
with cynical contempt, for every principle of justice. She says treaties only
bind vou when it is lo your interest
lo ke'ep them. 'What is a treaty?'
says the German chancellor; 'a scrap
"Have you any live-pound notes
about, you? 1 am not calling for
them. Have you any of those neat
little Treasury _l notes? If you
have, burn them; they are only 'scraps
of paper.' What are they made of?
Rags. What are they worth? The
whole credit of the British empire.
'Scraps of paper!'
"I have been dealing with scraps of
paper within the last month. We suddenly found the commerce of the
world coming to a standstill. The machine liad stopped. Why? I will tell
you. AVe discovered, many of us for
tlie first time���I don't pretend to say
that I do not know much more about
the machinery of commerce today
than I did six weeks ago, and there
arc a good many men like me���we
discovered the machiaefy of commerce was moved liy bills of exchange. I have seen some of them
wretched, crinkled, scrawled over,
blotched, frowsy, and yet the_e
wretched litlle scraps of paper moved
great ships, laden wilb thousands of
tons of precious cargo, from one end
of tho world to the oilier. What was
the motive power behind them? The
honor of commercial men. Treaties
are the currency of International
"Let us be fair. German merchants,
German traders had tlie reputation of
lieing as upright and straightforward
as any traders in the world. But if Uie
currency of German commerce is to
lie debased to tho level or that of
lier statesmanship, no trader, from
Shanghai to Valparaiso, will ev( r look
at a German signature again. This
doctrine of the scrap of paper, this
doctrine which Is superscribed by
Bernhardi as treaties which serve only
as long ns it is to its interest goes
to Hie root of public law.
"it- is tlio straight road to barbarism. Just as if you remove the magnetic pole whenever it was in the
way of a German cruiser lhe whole
navigation of the seas would become
dangerous, difficult, Impossible, and
the Whole machinery ot civilization
will break down if this doctrine wins
in this war.
"Wc are lighting against barbarism.
But there is only one way of putting
it right: if there are nations that say
tbey will only respect treaties when
ii is to their Interest to do so, we
must make ti to tlieir interest  to dc
so for (lie future.
"What is their defence? Just look
al lhe Interview which took place between ihe British ambassador and
great German officials, When tlieir at-
tenlion was called lo this treaty o
Which Ihey were partners, they suld:
'We cannot help that.' Rapidity ol
action was ihe great German asset.
There is a greater asset for a nation
than rapidity of action, and Hint l��

Disappear When the Blood
is Made Rich, Red
and Pure
Che mistaken idea that faxatives
or drastic purgatives provide a short
cut to tho cure of indigestion is
largely responsible for the prevalence
of dyspepsia and other stomach disorders. Indigestion calls for more
than a makeshift. Your stomach needs
tone; it cannot absorb nourishment
from tlio food you eat. To give new
strength to your stomach so that it
may perforin tho work of digestion
without pain or distress, you must enrich the blood. This is tlie tonic method for strengthening weak stomachs.
In cases of this kind Dr. Williams'
Pink Pills for Pale People are the |
best medicine known. Every dose j
makes new, rich blood, which not only!
Strengthens the stomach but builds up
every pari of tho body as well. Hero
is aa illustration of what this medi-
cine can do: Mrs. I. N, Drown, Uow- \
vtlle, N,B��� says: "For three years I
was a sufferer from chronic indigestion. I wns hungry all the time, yet
could take very little food, and what
I did take was followed by great distress and nausea. My sleep at night
\yas broken, and I often had proftiae
night sweats. The suffocating feeling
which often followed eating would
cause my heart to palpitate violently.
At times my hands and face would become the color of clay and I would
lie completely prostrated. 1 was
under the care of a good doctor who
finally told me the trouble was incurable and that the most I could
hope  for was  temporary    relief.    I

"Tommies" in German Hands
How the British prisoners are employing their time in Germany during
captivity is told by a reputable German newspaper, which gives details of
the camp at Doeberitz, near Berlin,
where three thousand Britishers are
interned. The men are engaged in
building wooden huts against the cold
weather, in improving roads, and in
weeding and digging. "Regiments" are
kept together. Non-coinmlsioned officers do not work. The only British
officers at Doeberitz are two doctors.
The same newspaper admits that the
familiarity of "The Times" with the
movements of the Kaiser and German
army corps has greatly impressed Ilie
German press, which is completely in
tlie dark as to these mallei's.

Editor Review
Dear Sir:���lu connection with a
voter's qunli icnti its at the approaching first Municipal Election,
there appears to be some uncertainty as to whal constitutes 'ownership,' On this point the ruliug of
the Attorney-General's Office is tin
A person who has not fully paid
lor a lot cannot lie deemed the
owner, although he may have an
interest in it. IU- has nierelv

he becomes the owner, lhe title

'own' property; that is, have the
title in is own name, and if what
he owns is worth $100, he has a
vote; if nol, lie has no vote.

Letter to the Editor
ttdltor Review,
Dear Sii: 1 have been much Interested
in tlto letters which have appeared in
your paper this winter advocating the
buying ��>i goods outsllle ol the district
nu tin- pleii Hmi pm's nn- niuch lower
Unin ni li    It is true that figures n\,
pear generally a litlle lo.vci lu the cata
login.- of the la'rge depnrtuiem stores
which enn-t-i ih through ihe ill .lla,
therefore in my are carried aw.iy wfth
the idea thai dealers could sell us cheaply here il they would only he satisfied
with reasonable Instead i��( exorhltanl
profits. II those who hnve that idea and
li.iv outside would stop mid think, they
w-mld see that ihey themselves ure the
cause ul highei' prices at home and uot
the deolers.
If every one bought at homo and (nr
cash il would enable the dealer l�� buy
for cash also and in much larger quantities at lower prices.
The_. Baton Co,, which, lam ashamed
to suy, enjoys such a large patronage in
tlie Comox valley, owes its success to
large buying und selling for cash only.
All through Canada, from lhe Atlantic
to the Pacific, 1 am safe in saying there
is not a town or villrge but has Its Baton
customers. I have been told that even
missionaries in China send to them (or
their dry goods. It follows that their
sales are enormous.
A 1 icul dealer lays ill a supply of dry
goods, say ouce or twice a year, and at
the end of the season has to be pleased
if a few of the lines are completely sold
out, while this lirm replenishes its stock
perpetually. The man who lends his
, money at 111 percent, per month interest
is naturally richer at the end of the year
than be who lends tttlO per cent- per
The principal is the same, and it is no
wonder if the owners of those large
establishments travel in private railway-
cars or die millionaires.
We read the other week of the death
of Sears, of Sears, Rochrick & Co.,
Chicago, leaving a fortune of 17 million
dollars, and I shouldn't be surprised if
some of the farmers ill this remote valley
had contributed something toward those
Those large firms have buvers in
Britain, France and Germany and when
they approach the factory owners, rattling tlie cash, (figuratively speaking)
and demand rock-bottom prices, they get
it. Having bought chealpy, the duly on

Instead of running down  the dealers

what interest they owe.
Still others who bring their produce,
eggs for Instance, expecting the highest
market prices, imd taking In trade perhaps a lump glass, bottle of ink or
loh.ieeo (things hul would cost them
high if Bent for) und asking cash for the
remainder lhat they may send to Vancouver or elsewher - for their groceries.
Sounds funny doesn't il? Why do they
not ship their eggs etc,, to where the;,
get llieir goods? Because in the transaction the price of the produce would go
down and that of the groceries go up.
"Comox" has a grievance against the
dealers hecause they are sometimes slow
in Imying the farmers produce, but perhaps the dealers are not so innch to
blame even there.
We use apples ill onr household all the
time anil as we don't raise any we have-
to buy. This Autumn we have bought
them from three different growers ill
this valley and can truthfully say that
notone box was of first class quality, but
were of all sizes-put in anyhow. A box
filled in that manner settles, so that
when the lid is lifted it is little more
than three-quarters full, besides the fruit
being more or less bruised. This month
we boughtut tbe store after making sure
tbey were imported, and what a difference ! The apples carefully wrapped
in papers, are of uniform size, beautiful
iu color and excellent in quality, and in
price the same as the home grown fruit.
If the home growers would put up their
fruit like that the dealers would be able
to satisfy their customers without buying
out of the district.
���As for potatoes I don't believe many
of theni are brought in except a few
from California in the early summer.
Comox potatoes are often shipped out
but have not so far won a name for themselves on the city markets. When roiid
work is to be had in the fall we farmers
have a habit of neglecting our root crop.-;
and taking onr teams 1111 the road, bater
when the November storms are upon us
and our potatoes are still undug,
blame the weather. We all know what
like potatoes are, taken out of the ground

at the Front
The Nullah troops nre al length :.i
the front, nnd are now fighting side
hy aide with the British and French in
Franco. In all there are 70,000 of
Ihem, consisting of two infantry dlvl
Slons and four cavalry brigades, with
suppers and transport corps.' with
them come eleven Indian Princes,
chosen out of seven hundred who immediately (tame forward to offer their
lives, armies, nnd treasures to their
emperor. This Is the first time that
the native troops have fought against
uropeans, hut. it is by no means the
first time thai they hnve battled side
by side with the English Tommy At-
ins, They have fought battles of
unparalleled fury, nud undergone untold hardships in many campaigns,
inarching and fighting and camping
with our own troops, to whom they
are no strangers. In the Indian Mutiny, In tho two Afghan wars, in Bur-
mah, in Egypt, in the Chitral, and j
dozens of frontier campaigns, from 1
one sldo of India to the other, they!
have shown themselves capable of i
marvellous endurance antl tremendous
energy, Hecause il is hot in India it is
an entire delusion lo suppose that ourl
Indian armies are mere fine-weather|
lighters. The rigors of a European
winter are nothing to what these,
troops have experienced in times past,
fighting on the northern frontiers of
the Indian empire, on lho roof of the
world. Passing from the heat of the
plains they have climbed up into the
mountains. They know what rain is,
such tis is never seen In Europe. They
have fought and stormed fortresses at
11,000 feet above sea-level, nnd camped with the thermometer at an degrees
below freezing point, the rivers frozen, and snow covering tho ground.
Among the most famous native regi
ments are the Gurkhas, short, slight,
wiry men of tremendous strength, capable of amazing endurance. The Bengal l.ancers are other famous lighters,
men of splendid physique, und mag-
nlficenl horsemen, highly disciplined,
and knowing no fear. It is of these
men that Lord Curzon hns said that
he hopes to see theni marching
through ihe streets of Berlin.
War and  the   Eugenlst
The economist, the political idealist, the moral enthusiast   leaders in
nil branches of thought, will regard
the present war with doubt and misgiving, llul. none will deplore It so
deeply as Ilie eugeni .t. The iiuiu with
visions of race Improvement, tlie be-
lievor In 1110 hereditary transmission
of physical characteristics, must behold ihe destruction of the strong uud
hardy, the preservation of lho weali
and infirm. Ile is convinced that Ihe
physical Improvement of the peoples
of Europe will, us a result of lhe con
Hid, receive 11 century'!; setback, Mis
fours are well grounded; his faith
has the justification of history, Napoleon's fatal genius clouded nil Europe wllh the gloom of wnr. wreclced
commerce and industry, crushed political freedom. Hut worst of ull, nnd
most lasting, wns the blow to ihe
manhood of France, That wns ropnr.
aide only through the course ol centuries.
The devastation of humanity is still
tho most terrible exaction of warfare.
Progress in civilization, in political,
economic and personal freedom is
dearly bought, if it be attained ouly ut
lhe price of physical deterioration. --

Enlarge the Wheat Output
Under normal conditions Canada
has about 1 .0000,000 acres under
wheat cultivation. The Dominion department ot agriculture is urging
Canadian tanners to increase very
largely their wheal acreage this fall
and next spring, for even if the war
is over by the lime the next crop is
harvested, the stoppage of production
in Europe caused through the war,
will make wheal, high priced next
year. Russia alone produces about
900,000,000 bushels of wheat, and if
eight or ten million men nre put into
the field against Germany over winter
there is likely lo be a shortage in the
Russian production alone of as much
as Canada produces altogether.���

Shot as a Spy, But Honored in Death
lt must not be forgotten that there
is a place in honorable  warfare for
the spy.
In Westminster Abbey there is it
might reasonably he recalled a monument erected to the memory of a
Britisher shot as a spy. This is ihe
famous Major Andre, who was shot
as a spy by George Washington for
being within the American lines in
disguise. The fact is, he had been
sent by hia general. Sir Henry Clinton, to confer at West Point on the
Hudson, with that arch-traitor, General Arnold.
He obeyed orders and went, taking
every precaution of secrecy and -lie-
guise to escape the notice of the enemy, ln fact, he was within sight
of the English lines on his return
when lie wa9 taken, and after a long
court-martial he was condemned and
I shot. But the traitor Arnold, by
i Andre's self-sacriftce, escaped the
punishment he had so richly deserved.
The body of the gallant and talented young 'soldier was taken to Kngland, interred in the Abbey, and over
his grave the British governmitt
erected a moniment. THE COURTENAY REVIEW
