W Idle they ale, Mrs. I*arllett, who
hud pushed up her veil Far enough to
amble hrr i,, cal withoul revealing
lier features, watched Dolly keenly
from behind thc veil. The brighTness
of her eyes was visibl : through the
meshes of Ihr- veil, Holly was very
pale, very apathetic. There was a
<lr.ll look about her, as though she
were drugged. She ate in silence,
apparently unknowing what she -.it*-,
and except fur an occasional inquiry
from llie man as lo what they would
cat or drink, the meal passed in silence, There was so much chatter at
the other tables in the sallc a manger
tlirit llieir silence might well pass un-
obsch ed.

and ilu- damp wind nipped.

Cooper slopped.
"Get whatever clothes you require

tin poundViolc io Mrs. Bartlctt. "I
will smoke in j cigar while you are

For a Democratic Germany
Mr.  Scheidemann  Learns  Something
at Stockholm
The advantages of foreign travel
for Germans arc exemplified in the
ease, of Philip Scheidcinahtl, the Socialist   leader.   He   returns   from   the
Stockholm conference convinced thai
about lhe only way to deliver Germany from the horrors of a fourth
winicr of war is ihc democratization
of ihc empire,
"it  was iii  Stockholm," he .says in
a two-column article in    Vorwaerts,
that  I  finally accepted as   my    unshakable conviction that   of  'which
1 had before   been   conscious���the
thing cannot ho achieved withoul   llle
sweeping democratization of Germany," The ihing to be achieved is
lhc finding of j way out of -this
endless murdering of nations,"
More Germans ought to go abroad,
a great many more, lhat is the only
way they can learn the truth, Within the empire ihey are taught to believe that Germany is fighting for Its
life againsl a combination of powerful and desperately wicked nations
seeking to destroy il. ll has been
drilled Into their minds thai Germany's enemies will not desist until
lhcy have accomplished their purpose���Germany's only hope is
through victory. Air. Scheidemann
saw a new light in Stockholm, he ii
spreading it in Berlin, It is the duty
ul Germans, he says, "to seek the
way lhat will lead us out of this endless murdering of nations," and the
only way i.s to make thc empire democratic. 'The rest of Ihe world
knew long ago that that was the
way. lhat peace would come if the
German people were made free. The
nations havc united nol to destroy
Germany, but to destroy the German

Our Name
When the new confederation was
formed the question was, by what
style should it be known" At ii - si
it was "United Provinces," and so
remained in the first six drafts of the
bill. Then a new title was substituted, "Kingdom of Canada." But Lord
Derby, premier at the time, looking
lo the great and growing republic
across the Canadian frontier, said:
"Why needlessly wound American
sensitiveness;" And so, Dominion it
became, 'e.ntl remains, none the less
majestic a heritage for not chrdl- 'g-
ing the armour propre of the men
now lighting by our side.���-ondoit

Valuable Practical Experience
There is nothing like praetieal experience to open eyes. Some city
vacant-lot gardeners who paid from
$4 to $5 for a bag of potatoes to
plant a small lot, the cultivation of
which for planting cost $.1 or $4, aud
who have hoed and hoed and now
lir.d Paris green is (iO cents per
pound, are beginning to figure that
llieir work lias been patriotic, foi
irom their $7 lo $10 outlay, lo say
nothing of interest or rent of lot anil
labor. Ihey are likely lo gel from seven to ten bags (,f potatoes and maybe
potatoes will nol bc more than /.'
cents to $1 per bag nexl winter. It
is a great experience, Growing slnll

\dvocate,
This new drug is an ether compound discovered by a Cincinnati
chemist. It is called frcc-
, zone, and can now be obtained in liny bottles as
here shown at very little
cost from any drug
store. Just ask for free-
zone. Apply a drop or
two directly upon a tender corn or callus and instantly the soreness disappears. Shortly you will
find the corn or callus so
loose that you can lift it
oil, root and all, with the
lingers.
Not a' twinge of pain,
soreness or irritation; not
even the slightest smarting, either when-applying
freezone or afterwards.
This  drug   doesn't    "at
up the corn or callus, but
shrivels    them    so     llicy
loosen    and    come,    right
out.  It i.s no humbug!  It
works like a charm.   I'or
______      a few  cents  you can  get
fid of every hard corn, soft corn or
corn between the Iocs, as "well gs
painful calluses on bottom of yoiir
feet. It never disappoints ami never
burns, bites or inflames. If your
druggist hasn't any freezone yet,
tell him to get a little bottle for you
from his wholesale house.

Aerial Patrol for Sheep Ranch
Flying shepherds may add a picturesque touch lo life on western
sheep ranches if ihe plans of a
wealthy Montana herdsman prove to
be as practicable as they arc origi
nal. Last season 2,600 of Die rancher's sheep wandered into the bills
and perished. Therefore he has purchased a biplane and has becn receiving Instruction at Los Angeles in
its operation, Hc expects to patrol
the ranch with the air craft nnd locate missing flocks, J'y dropping
smoke bombs their positions will be
marked. The machine is to be equipped with radio apparatus so as to bc
in communication wilh the pack
train, if the scheme works out successfully, the raiicher contemplates
maintaining a flotilla of five or six
machines, and it is possible that others in thc vicinity will do likewise.

How Prohibition
Affects Russia
Results so Satisfactory That There
Is Small Chance of Return to Old Order
Recently the Russian ministry of
finance published a volume in which
it discussed the effect of the prohibition of vodka upon thc Russian
people. The review covers the period from July, 1914, to April, 1915:
but while it covers less than a year
it is well worth noting ils conclusions, it declares that while drunkenness has decreased, church-going
has increased; and' while vodka shops
have disappeared, their place has
been taken by tea-houses and eating-
houses. Village life has been changed for the better, and prosperity i.s
much iu cvidtnice. ll is asserted that
suicides have decreased considerably
while thieving, murder, streei fights
and such like have decreased in some
Idealities on the average about 46.4
per cent. Thc health of the people
has improved, and beggars have almost disappeared. On account of
tlie village bouses being built of wood
and straw, tire has been a terrible
scourge; but prohibition has lessened
the. tire rale from _0 to 40 per cent,
'lhc deposits iu governmental savings banks have increased in an ex
traordinary degree, and iu the pro
vince of Perm alone the population
has added about $8(000,000 to its;
wealth in tllis way. The abolition of
vodka bas greatly "increased the efficiency of labor in sonic eases, iu tin
Moscow- industrial district the ill
crease being as high as _5 per cent
The people generally seem glad that
the curse has been banished, and
there seems small probability thai
the republic will return to the evil
which lhc empire put under the ban.

Will Try To Excite Pity
Look Out  for    This    Big    German
x Trick
"We learn from a sourci that is
generally trustworthy that tlie Germans on their part contemplate the
possibility of having recourse to the
stratagem of a pseudo-revolution. It
has, wc are informed, been decided
in high quarters to excite the pity
of the Allies, anil in induce them to
conclude an illusiv. peace by stimulating an intention lo introduce a regime of democratic liberalism in
Germany, The supreme head of the
state has been induced to promise
temporary reforms of so radical a nature that the Allies could not help
being impressed by  them.
"This metamorphosis of Germany
would, of course, last only until ri
favorable peace had been concluded
As the memory of the war faded.
Prussia would gradually revert to the
old slate of affairs, but the aim
would have been achieved and Germany would have been saved bv
ephemeral concessions, We are u

When you get into a frame of

your nervous system is becoming exhausted, and you arc on the way to
a general breakdown in hcallh. in
this condition your health and happiness is worth fighting for and good,

needs. It is a hopeless task to try
to restore your health while your

British Pride and Patience
Although Prisoners   of   War,   They
Preserved Their Good Humor
Rene Aroos, in a letter to a Chicago newspaper, describes the. experiences of Hriiish and French prisoners who have recently been transferred from Germany to Switzerland,
The writer defines the prisoner's life
as composed of good and bad days.
"Sometimes wc French enjoyed ourselves and 'fit other times we lived
through somber hours. Our grcates
pain was oi a moral nature. The separation from those we loved; the
duration of our captivity, llic absence
of reliable news and the'state of uncertainty nud insecurity in which we
lived exercised a fatal influence ovcr
lhc great number of us. Natures
grew bitter and violent, disputes
v.-crc frequent between our comrades
in misfortune. The. sight of these
quarrels caused us undcfinable sorrow from wdiich it look long to recover,
"It seemed to me that, of all the
prisoners, the English got ou the
best together, Their solidarity wns
admirable. .Though treated more severely than we were, tlicy preserved
their steady good humor, and their
pride was comforting to scc."

"The primary duty of a food con

recent interview, "is t'o see that the
men al the front do not sulTc from
waul of food, and lhal our Mother

should not suffer from want of food."
"Have you power lo cheek prices.'"
Hon. W. J, Hanna wns nsked.
"Certainly,"
"Are you going' to exercise il?"
"In   lhc   crises   win re   wc   have,   lhe

Sir William Hearst, premier of

"Wc musl look calmly and fearlessly at ihe pn-sent situation, Unless then- is greater thrift, ceonomy
and conservation of food, there will
be a shortage of supplies to Great

Britain in twelve months will hnve
to import five months' supplies, according to the statement by Kennedy
Jones, director general of food economy, iii-eat Britain, llis calculation
included the. cereals at present on

the new tonnage to be available and
the result of the campaign to eliminate food waste. Canada nnd thc
United States are. looked to for the

"It is in the homes of the province
of Ontario that the great battles wi

nnd won," declares. Sir William
Hearst, premier of Ontario), referring to liie food controller's food
conservation campaign. Premier
Hearst's words apply to all Canada.
"At first the call was for men, munitions, and money," says food controller Hanna. ".Now the cry is for
men, munitions and food."
"Food controllers in the Slates
and Canada were appointed in order
that the men at the front niighl bc
fed," says Hon. W. J. Hanna, Canadian food controller. "In order that
those behind at home should not go
hungry; in order that Great Britain
niul lier Allies should not have to
retreat from the enemy for want of

The remarkably rapid evolution 0!
hcavier-than-air Hying machines, during lhc three years ol the war, naturally suggests the question of applying the war potentiality of this
modern invention to some practical
use iu the. next interval of peace,
This attractive subject of conjecture
is the theme of an inti resting article
by two British writers in the July
niiuiber of The Contemporary Re
view. In their opinion il will he
feasible lo build, immediately aflci
lhe wnr, passenger aircraft, each of
which will carry twenty-five or fifty
people at an average speed of nearly
a hundred miles an hour; these to hc
followed later by larger craft, filled
with motors developing thousands of
horse-power, which should nttahi a
j speed of from two hundred to three
' hundred miles. The potentiality ot
the airplane is unquestionable; its
evolution for peace purposes and
service is a matter of co-operation
among inventors, organizers, and capitalists.
Sonic of lhe possibilities of
achievement in traveling arc more
than interesting. Instead of a business man consuming seven hours ir.
travelling by sen and rail between
London and Paris, he will be able

The question of comparative risk.
as among modes oi travelling by
land, sea, and air, respectively, is
dealt with, and so is the need ot _
common speech, like Esperanto, as a
means of cosmopolitan communication. The danger from accidents,
such as collisions or explosions, is
even now hardly greater in the air
ihnn il is on the sea or land, and in
the long run it may be very much
less. As in the case of an ocean
liner, which is driven by many engines and boilers, some of which
may be out of use wilhout any worse
effect than lessening the speed of
the vessel, so the airplane of the
future will be filled with multi-engines driving a number of independent propellers.���Toronto Globe.

Valuable   and
Weapon
The overwhelming position in tire
war picture occupied by the big guns
lhe machine guns nnd Lewis guns,
the importance of trench mortars.
I hand grenades, bombs, rifle grenades
and other accessories of trench war-
warfare, mnke some men think that
the day of thc lille. as an important
adjunct lo success in battle is wcll-
uight past.
Such is not the case. Those of us
who can 'remember the brave advances of the Prussian Guard al
Ypres, when they mar,bed in battalion formation right up the Merlin
road, straight nt our trenches���on
, one occasion, if not more, marching
1 lo almost sure death at the goose
step���know- the value of accurate,
inpid rifle lire. , So do these Prussian guardsmen, if any of them are
still alve. Not many of them were
left when thc broken waves of gray
were swept back, like leaves by an
-autumn wind.
i'he rifles did most of it. Machine
guns we hnd, to bc sure, but woefully few of them. Those that we had
were overworked to n point that
made us wonder, net when they jammed, but when they worked long
without jamming, The rifle in 'ho
hands of a man who can shoot
straight and shoot with great rapidity, is a wicked weapon still; and*
thc vaule of cold steel, though it is
not a subject on which men who
have seen it used love to dwell, hai
not, so far ns I can see, changed
greatly, if at all, in the three year��
of grim v. ar in Europe.
Take Nothing for Granted
We are at war with the most merciless and inhuman nation in the
world. Hundreds of thousands of its
people in this country want to see
America humiliated and beaten to
her knees, and they are. doing, and
will do, everything in their power to
bring this about. Take, nothing for
granted. Energy and alertness in
this direction may save the lif�� of
your son, your husband or your
brother.���Providence Journal. THE COURTENAY REVIEW
The Cleanest Range
The Kootenay has a nickeled steel,
rust-proof oven that is as easy to wash
and keep clean as any cooking utensil.
The ash-chute directs all the ashes
into the pan, which is roomy and large
enough to hold a two days' accumulation.   "Write i'or booklet,
