Good Roads
All-Important     Factor     in     Enabling!
Farmers to  Reach Markets
The campaign for good roads being!
carried on throughout Canada is only
part of the general awakening of the j
people, to the causes which have led
to the enormous increase in the prices
of the necessaries of life.  Thut  the j
transportation  problem is all-important for the farmer-producer is without j
question.   That he may at all seasons j
reach his markets at a minimum of
titiii' and expense is a necessary factor in the making of reasonable prices!
for his products.   For the consumer,
good roads have an advantage in the
fact that by enabling the farmers to
roach the markets in greater numbers,'
the supplies of produce will ho larger, I
and competition will be keener. A further consequence of this larger attendance (vill be that more attention
will be paid to tlie condition of tiie
produce offered by those displaying it.

Skin Trouble '

Skin Dried and Cracked ar.d Hair Fell
Out���Cured by Dr. Chase's Ointment
Eczoma is annoying and distressing
at any time, but doubly so when it
gets into the eealp and causes the
hair ip fall out. Here is a grateful [
loiter from a lady who was cured by
using Ur. Chase's Ointment.
.Mrs.   Hector   Currie,   Tobermory,
Out., writes:  "1 wns cured pf a disagreeable  shin  disiasc  of  the   scalp!
by using Dr. Chase's Ointment. The
trouble started with itching and pain
lu Uio scalp, the skin would get dry j
and crack, and i' limes would bleed,
and lhe hair would fall out.   1 tried j
tlirefl doctors without benefit, and suffered for thn.   years. Reading In the'
almanac about Dr. Chase's ointment,!
I began    Its use, and am now com-!

A Period of Rest
Pointers   For   Dairymen   in   Keepin;
Record  of Average  Milk
Yield
In the fall of 1H14 many dairy cows
dried off somewhat earlier 'ban usual
on account of scarcity of feed. However long the period of rest may havo
been, six weeks i,r four months, cows
will soon he ready for business as
usual during 1015. Now lho point
arises, can the period of work be extended'.' That meai'o careful preparation in a variety uf ways,
One  item   may    well  lie  noted   by
the   dairyman   who   hns   not  yet  endeavored lo shorten that rest period.
It   dors   not follow Hint a cow riving
1,20O pounds of milk or so during her
llrst month will give as much during
the     whole' season us the cow that
gives only SOO pounds tlie llrst month.
The first one may he dry in a little j
over seven  months  and  then  settle i
down lo extended repose, while   the
second   cow will bo producing for ten ,
months, enabling her owner to take j
advantage of good prices in full   and I
winter,    Obviously, therefore, correct
judgment as to a cow's production Is J
to bo based on a knowledge of   the i
total weight for tho season, not for
the best, month or two only, for that
period of rest is a very variable factor. I
Keeping track cf the weight given
by each cow is simplified by using!
tlie forms supplied free by lhe gov-1
eminent Write to th Dairy Commissioner, Ottawa, for samples of the record forms of tbrfie days per mouth,
and those for dairy weights. II. will
be still better to take samples
as well so as lo [i am by iho tesl how
much fai each cow gjves.

VALUES OF FARM LANDS AND
LIVE STOCK THROUGHOUT CANADA
LIVE STOCK VALUES ARE BEING WELL MAINTAINED
Census and Statistics Uflice at Ottawa (fives some Detailed Infor
niation Regarding Agricultural Conditions,  Cleaned
from Correspondents all over the Dominion
A bulletin recently issued hy  the i
census and  stati_tlcs  office  siinitnar- j
izes the results of inquiries mado by
crop reporting oorrespondennta as to j
(1) the values of farm laud, t_l the
values of farm help, and Ci) the values
rt' farm livestock in 11)14.
The average value of farm land in
Canada held for agricultural i:urposes,
whether improved or nnlinproveil, antl
including the ' value of dwelling
farm hiiildings, is returned iis $38.41
per ncrc, which is '.iliniit equal to that
of the lust similar Inquiry in 1910,
when the value was given us $38.46
per acre ln 1911 I! 0 average was returned by the census as $30.41, but I
this value was based upon returns
from all occupiers, Including farms
only I'econtly settlbd, and therefore ot
less value By provinces the avorage
values of 1. 1 _ range from $21 per
acre iu Alberta to $150 per acre in
Itritisli Columbia, In this province,
however, Uie high value is duo to orcharding, ordinary agriculture b ling
Subsidiary to fruit culture.
In recent years the wages of farm
help have increased considerably, anil
Ihey reached their highest point during the bumper harvest of 1913. Rut
In 1!)14 the pendulum swayed haclt,
loss labor being rcquirod ou farms
owing to lighter crop:;. Since August
the war has had for one of its effects
an increase in the supply of farm
labor, and consequently .. full in the
wages. The demand for labor this
winter has also decreased 'leeauso of
the increased cost of board'. For the
Dominion the average wages per
month during the summer, including
hoard, were $35.55 for male and $18.81
for female help. For the year, including board, the average wages were
$323.30 for males and $180 35 for fe-
1010. Average wages per month in
loll were lowest in Prince Edward
Island, viz., $21.71 for mules and $14.48
for females. In the western provinces
they were: For males, $30.13 in Manitoba: $40.51 in Saskatchewan, and
$���10.28 in Alberta,   females  receiving
$22.35 ill Manitoba, $22.95 in Saskatchewan, and $28.63 111 Aiherta. The
highest wages were paid in British
Columbia, viz., $47.85 for males and
$31.18 for females, these averages be-
Ing substantially less than in 1010,
v/nen mules received $57.40 nnd females $38.
Vaiue.-i for livestock are well maintained, so fiir as comparison with Hie
throe years ended 1910 is concerned;

Dear Mr. Bdlti
Review
r.- A lew ol
the   citi
zens assembled by the P. (1, on Monday
morning to witness the hoisting of the
Union jnck for the lirst time outside tlie
building, It gave otic great pleasure to
do this, as I have always taken a greal
interest in Comox 1'. (I., uiul worked
heart uml soul for it iu its infancy. It
is now three years since II. Clements
M. P. was approached mi granting us a
1'. 0. here, anil for a time tilings looked
very uiicrtiiin. However, we eventually
gained our point. For those who nre
not thoroughly conservaut with the facts
I would like to say that at one time Comox hail a so-called P. (). iu a local
store. The building was ver) congested
evilly ventilated, und more than inconvenient both (or the customers inn! the
unfortunate P. M. I ofteu think it was
the sii^nt of the wretched place that decided Mr. Clements mi doing something
fur us. I talked tu Mr. Clements for
hours, some people lure sny days ami
weeks, I.vcutuuUv be decided thai if
wc could give n clear title Iii a suitable
building site mir chances would be good
tor a post office, V. R, Robb was approached, lie came to the front like a
mull, ami his price was such that the
citizens (poor as they were) found the
money nt once, and money was even refused us we bud all we wanted to make
the price for the lot. Mr, Manson M.
P, P., must not be omitted from the
lisi of workers on our behalf. His influence was .strongly exerted ou getting
us a P. o. here.
Wc have now n building that is 11
credit to Comox, anil the latest additions
viz, beautiful interior fixtures,  cement
sidewalks, anil last but not least, the
flag pole with the Union Jack proudly
flying aloft, give the: whole place a  city
appearance,   Comox has made a  g I
start, the place may be smalt lull I hope
lhat .Mr. Clements ami Mr, Manson
know und realize that we appreciate tlieir
elTorts in giving such an up-to-date
building to this place. May thev live
Ions uiul die happy ! ,
Thanking you Ior your valuable space.

Locusts in Eastern Canada
Fen* people who have not experienced a plague ct le.cttsts can
appreciate how terribly destructive
the pest can be. In Circular No.
5, of the Entomological Branch of
the Federal Department of Agriculture. Mr, Arthur Gibson, Chief
Assistant Entomologist, tells something about locusts or "grasshoppers" that everv tiller of the soil
should know. He states that for
the last three years the pest has
been extremely destructive in the
provinces of Ontario and Quebec.
In one distiict of Lanark County
alone, an estimated loss of $6,000
was caused, representing 75 per
cent of lhe crops. In a number of
instances fields of barley and oats
were cut green to save for feed,
while iu other cases in the province
of Quebec farms have been abandoned owing to the prevalence of
locusts. The insects are most impartial in their attention, attacking
all kinds of grain and vegetables,
After describing the different
species which are liable to infest
any part of Canada, Mr. Gibson
suggests as an efficacious poison, a
bran mash that has beeu well tried,
consisting of
Bran 20 pounds
Paris green of white arsuic... 1 pound
Molasses 2 quarts
Oranges anil lemons 3 fruits
Water 3 1-2 gallons
It is said that the oranges ami lemons
make the bait more attractive nnd hence
lend to the undoing of tlie locust. . gx-
periments mude witli this mixture, whicli
can be concocted at small cost, have
proved most successful, in one case no
fewer than from 900 to I, _00 dead locusts
lieing counted to the square yard. Besides illustrating Uie efficiency of the
poison this statement also proves the
alarming ami overwhelming nature of
the creatures, As every farmer should
lie prepared to protect liis crops against

Mr. J. Wihnsht rst, who has
been road superintendent here for
the past four years has been trans
ferred to llie mainland, with head
quarters at Powell River. Strath-
cona park hns also beeu added to
his district, lt must be highly
satisfactory to Mr. Wilmshurst lo
leave tin.' roads in mi good shape,
considering Unit when be came
here llieir were only two or three
cars in the district und it was an
almost impossible feat *to drive n
car to Catnpell River, now there is
Hot to be loiuul anywhere in the
province a better piece of road than
between Courtenay and Oyster
River. When he enr e here he
revolutionized the aysii r> in vogue,
and has standardized and widened
all the roads in the district. Mr.
Wilmshurst is recognized by the
Department to be oue of the best
road supervisors in the province,
aud this is evidenced by his being
appointed to look after Strathcona
Park. He was in charge of the
roads for many years at Greenwood
B. C, and was taken from there to
Victoria, where he acted as travelling inspector for a time before
coming to Comox. Dining his
residence here Mr. Wilmshurst
kept the business of making roads
out of pololics, which did not
ph'ase some extremists. Mr.
Wilmshurst s bluff, hearty ma'uier
has won him many friends in the
Valley, who* while regretting his
dearture wish both him and bis
family the best of luck in his new
Sphere of activities. Mr. Wilmshurst enters upon his new duties
this week. The family will not
move to Powell River until midsummer. Mr. J. McLeod, of Cumberland, his succcssrr here, com

The  Bugle Bast (o C.na_a
Readers of lhe newspapers and
followers of lhe war musi long ago
have lu come convinced that t he
situation grows in,no and more in-
lense nml critical day by day.
(ileal Biiliuin is fii-ed not alone bv
outside enemies, but by labor
troubles and by lack of those immense internal resources in tbe
matter of food production that Germany and Austria-Hungary possess. She cannot feed herself, aud
is compelled to rely largely on
oilier countries for a supply of the
necessaries of life. In such ei.se
the duty of her children Is distinctly plain. It is noteworthy of her
enemies that Ihey are not only
thoroughly united, but that they
nie enduring with what fortitude
they possess the rigid military enforcements that are placed upon
them for the conservation bnt': of
food and material. Every man,
woman, and child, from the Kaiser
down, have been put on rations.
The idea is three-fold, to guard
against auy possible emergencies,
to mislead the foe into over-confidence and by thoroughness to bring
such pressure to bear as will hasten
the final decision. Britiain is pursuing thc same course. She has
not yet found il necessary to place
her population individually on
short rations, but she has found
it desirable to take over nunitiou
factories in order to ensure supplies
that mean either life or death to
the nation. Meantime, Germany
by cowardly sub.uarlne assassination is endeavoring to starve her
people and cripple her resources.
With such a state of affairs existent it i.s hardly ncteasary to explain
to stay-at-home Canadians how
best they can fulfil their manifest
duty and s! ow the burden bearers
how completely they possess their
sympathy. But the bugle blast bas
its rallving nower in peace as in
war.    To all the  people,   and   to
urn
farmers, breeders uud settlers in
particu'ar, the Patriotism and Production movement that was in pro
gress is blowing ils bugle, or in
other Words, carrying its message
Its object is to arouse all and
sundry to the part thev are culled
on to play. That part 'Iocs nol of
necessity mean harder work or loci eased acreage; but it does imply
the exercise of every faculty Inattention and vigilance. It does imply iu ordtr to secure increased and
improved production, bv which
alcne cultivators of the soil enn
contribute toward-, ih ��� eiedit of
tbe country and empire, the greatest care in the selection of setd, in
the breeding of live stock and iu
economy of the land,

tlie great joy which news lor a victory

of Camilla there is a commercial aspect
to the thing which would be welcome to
the farmers of Canada, lt relates to the
hog and cuttle market. For some lime,
it is undoubtedly true, Hint lhe h'og
market lias not been in a very satisfactory condition, and the price of hogs bus
been quite low, considering tlie price ef
grain, hut now. idler mouths of low
prices, a change bus come and it is for
the better. Hogs ure going up iu price;
they ure already higher in tlie Pugei
Sound country than thay were a month
ago und in 60 to 90 days from now they
should be from n cent and a half to two
cents high r. Th. meat paekers ou this
side admit that it is only n question of n
short time until they will be compelled
in pay the ririce demanded by bog raisers, It is an absolute certainty they sny
that there is going to lie il great scarcity
of hogs. Grain has been so high thai
farmers rather than feed it to their hogs
have held on to il and got rid of their
stock. A shortage in hogs is the result.
There bus been a pretty general clean-up
of tlie surplus pork brought aboat by
the action of the farmers in selling tlieir
stock, nnd now the price of pork is getting buck to normal nud the market is
very much on the rise. The Canadian
fanner who keeps his stock nud increases
his hog supply is going to make a lot of
money this summer and next fall.

but it would come again.
Ravenspur made liglil of the matter. He spoke of the danger as something past. Yet it was impossible j
��� wholly to conceal the agitation that
lillcd him. Ile saw Marlon's pale,
sympathetic face; be .saw t'hi3 heavy
tetus in .era's eyes, and a dreadful
sense of liis absolute mil otsnee came
to bim.
"Let us forget it," he said almost
cheerfully. "Let. us think- no more of
the mailer. No doubt, science can explain this new mystery."
"Never," Ralph said in a thrilling
whisper. "Science is powerless here."
The speaker's sightless eyes were
turned upwards; he seemed to be
thinking aloud rather tbnn addressing
tbe company generally. Marion turned as If something had slung her.
"Uncle Ralph knows something that

"I know many things that are mercifully concealed from pure natures like

A strained silence followed. (Ine

Several    Canadian Sources of Potash

I may consider.    In order to place bis

\ No More Profitable Crop Than Alfalfa
is Opinion of This Farmer
The Northwestern State Bank of
Orange City, lu., believes in alfalfa��� ���
It is conducting an alfalfa growing
contest and offering JlfiO in prizes.
In its announcement, the bank snys;
"Sioux county is worth from two or
three times ns much today as il  was
i ten years ago, but wo are still raising
about the same number of bushels of
i corn, oals and  wheal  to   the    acre.
Every farmer will soon be asking him-
| self these questions:   How can 1 Increase the yield of the crops which I
'now raise'.'   And what new crop can
11 raise whicli will give nie larger re-
: turns I'rom my land?   The answer is
found  in  one Word���ALFALFA.'
"Heretofore our farmers have paid
very little attention to alfalfa and it is
practically a new crop here," writes
(lerritt J, Slob, casiiier. "Three of
our farmers who have put in alfalfa
have had remarkable success. Kudosed find statement :,igued by one of
our progressive young farmers, showing his experience with alfalfa. Your
July number was a good one to circulate among our farmers."
Here is the statement Mr. Slob enclosed:
Orange City, la., June 15, i914.
This is to certify that in the fall
of 1911, on my farm on 3 mile west of
Orange City, I seeded 4'^. acres to

Although there lias never been ;

SICK HEADACHES
PERMANENTLY CURED
Dr.   Williams'   Pink   Pills
Correct the  Cause  of
This Trouble
There arc few ailments that cause
more genuine misery in the lmiue than
attacks whicli are generally termed
sick headaches. Thc attacks arc often
periodical and when the mother of a
family is prostrated at intervals there
is not onlv her own suffering to consider, but the discomfort caused lhe
other members of the household. Sick
headaches arise from a variety of
causes, and most of tbem can be relieved or cured through the tonic
treatment wllh Dr, Williams' Pink
Pills. Mrs. Hugh Docherty, liocaville,
Sask., says: "I suffered for years with
what tlie doctors called nervous prostration ami sick headache. When
these spells.ame on I could not work
nor walk, and tbe pains in thc heart
were almost unbearable. At times the
pain in my head was so dreadful that
I feared it would drive ine mad. 1
tried four different doctors at limes,
and not only took bottles of medicine,
but quarts of it, but to no avail. Then
I quit taking medicine altogether and
tried dieting, hut it made no difference, I was still nil agonizing sufferer. Finally my husband" urged me to
trv Dr. Williams' Pink Pills and got
m'e a supply. Afler taking lhe Pills
for some weeks 1 felt a little better
and I gladly continued their use. My
nerves began to feel stronger, the terrible headr.ches came with less frequency, and after taking tbe Pills for
some 'months disappeared altogether.
Prom thai day tn ihls I have had no
return of the' trouble, and all who
knew of my illness regarded my cure
as marvellous. I cannot say too much
in praise of the Pills us they certainly saved me from a life of almost constant agony."
It is by building up and enriching
the blood and strengthening the
nerves that Dr. Williams' Pink Pills
work seemingly marvellous cures, und
what they have done for others they
will do for all ailing people if given a
fair trial. If you do not Iind these
Pills at yonr medicine dealers you cun
got them by mail nt 50 cents a box
or six boxes for $_.5ii from The Dr.

An   Efficacious   Remedy
A t'liry is lold by President l'niu-
care of as old pea.ant who was very
superstitious, A neighbor said to
him one day:
"That potalo you gave me to carry
in my pocket as a cure for rheumatism has bad a wonderful effect. I
haven't bad a twinge since you gavo
it to mc."
"There 1" exclaimed the peasant,
triumphantly, "1 told you a potato
carried in life pockets wns a cure
for rheumatism, and you wouldn't
believe me."
"Yes," the other admitted, "and
the really strange thing is that it
must have been exercising ils influence on me before you gave it mc,
for 1 never had a twinge before I began carrying it."

Bullets Meet in Rifle Barrel
A German soldier gives a remarkable account, of a peculiar shot:
"From one of the trenches," he
says. "I aimed at my adversary. At
a distance of about seventy yards
the outlines of a cap offered a remarkably good aim.
"I pointed   my   rifle,   anil was already sure    of    success.    I was .iust   THEN
pulling the trigger.    The.  aim    was
clear;  my bullet-could not fail.
"Suddenly I staggered back, and
when I recovered I found my rine
damaged at. the lock and tbe chamber,
I had a very ugly wound in the fore-
bead.
"I examined my rifle and found in
the bu. rel a. French and a German
bullet, both flattened. AVhat had happened was this: A French bullet bad

Relation to the  Farm and to
Labor Question
The development of a more intensive cultivation inusl curry with it a
much more careful consideration of
the labor problem. The difficulty of
gelling nnd keeping labor on the farm
is a commonplace' 1 think farmers
have not faced tl"' fact that this dift'l-
d.ue iu thc main tn their own

unless il. offers them continuous employment as part of a well ordered
business concern: ami this is not possible unless with a greatly Improved
husbandry.
Today agriculture has to compote
in the laber market against other, and
to many men more attractive, inilii ;-
trios, and a marked elevation iu the
whole standard of life In tlie rural
world is the best insurance of a belter supply of good farm labor. Only
an Intensive system of farming can
afford any large amount of permanent
employment, at decent wages to the
rural laborer, and only a good supply
of competent labor can render lnten-|
sivc fanning on any large scale profitable. Hut lhe intensive system of!
fanning not only gives regular em-1
ployinenl. and good wages: it also His

War Horses Turned Green
Effort to Change the Color of Whits
Horses Had Unexpected Result
lie was a sturdy littlo French gunner, and lev _d bis horses as an artilleryman should, hut ho was a little
disgusted when he saw the animal
turn green���"as creeii as au apple"���
as be said when ho told tho story.
White horses are not allowed at the
front, as they are too easily seen at
a distance, and Ihis is a war in which
invisibility is the great thing to
achieve. Several attempts have been
made since the beginning of hostilities to dye white horse* a serviceable
simile of brown, but so far with little success. Heavy rain lias generally
been the chief euen.y of such cxperi
ments.
Thc other day twenty-four horses
of one battery were dyed with a new
stain, and to lho delight, of officers
and men the rain seemed to have no
bad effect. But nuo night the horses
bad a specially hard bit cf work to
do. They sweated i nil lathered freely, and, to lhe horror of tne drivers,
they wero a bright green when the

matter left over till next year.
The Mayor said a scale was ,1
necessity and the city were bound
to have them, and ruled his motion
out nf order,
The Con. .able reported thai
tiler, were three tents on a .iiii
Street which were a nuisance.
Several piles of cans in
places sho.dil lie retltovei
several closets should be cleaned.
The const ible wus empowered lo

his notiee of motion, bul the Mayor
ruled it out of order.

an amendment to clauses 6,5 am
of the Health by-law, which he
had had his eminent K. C. friend
prepare, aud whicli gave a householder a chance to appeal from the
decision of the analyist if he jvas
not satisfied. This passed the
council ou motion.
He then brought in anothei
clause, no Ho, whicli provides lhat
no M. 11. O. who has an interest in
a company supplying water to a
city shall hold ofiice. This clause
caused quite a discussion, but was
fin illy carried. The mayor pointing out that Mr. Bodwell was not
running this council, and that he
would not sign the by-law.
Mr. Johnston said that Mr. Bod - i n,-uc"e 'posv
well was an  eminent  lawyer,   aud   Courtenav.

he or the mayor, and that he would
follow the mayor as far as he care 1
to go.
Thc constable reported that there
were a lot of pigs at the Co-Op
slaughter house, What was he to
do about it ?
Nothing iu the by-law covers
the case, and the by law is net passed yet.
The by-law amending the license
by-law received its third reading,
providing for a bottle license at
$125 for every six months

were being taught out of doors
much ns possible.
Aid, Kirkwood e cplained that
tlie teachers were not altogether iu
iattlt. The garden work was taken
up late, and all the lime possible
had been devoted to it. He had
taken the matter up with the teacher, and things would be right in
future,
Mr. W-. Hodgson than asked and
received permission to address the
council. He said that his children
had been neglected as well as the
others, and he had been compelled
to remove them. He had never
seen such idling, and made other
charges of a serious nature, which
will be investigated at once.
H D. Forde said he had no fault
to find.
Aid. Robertson said it was unfortunate hat the matter had not
been drawn to the trustees attention.
Mr.   > cPhec   said    "Make   the
charges in writing and they will be
attended to without delay."    This
J was too serious a matter  to   dally
wiih.
The council and members of the
Board of Trade were invited to attend the reception to Mr. Rushford
at Cumberland, on his return from
the Front, on Tuesday   afternoon.
