Ou Sunday evening Rev. T.
Menzies spoke on the history of
Egypt and the part she has played
in the past, and prophesied that
she will doubtless be a province of
Great Britain after the war is over.
He also reviewed the life of the
late Earl Roberts, who was born in
India, and for many years saw
service in the Indian army, and
said that perhaps his greatest feat
was the march into Afghanistan,
where with 10,000 troops he subdued 30,000 Afghans in three
hours after a forced mareh of 27
days, during which time neither
he nor his men had practically any
sleep and was never out of the
saddle until all his men had conic
into camp. He was a fearless soldier and never asked his men to go
where he himself was afraid to
lead. It was a fitting end that his
death came when on a visit to the
Indian troops on service iu France.

Because your case is a difficult one, and

cases of female ill?, such as inflammation, ulceration, displacements, tumors,

A Canadian engineer who had ear
trouble for years finally became so
deaf be could not bear the sound of
a steam engine, boils or voices. After
vainly seeking relief ho was compelled
to give up his position. His case scorned hopeless. His deafness was aggravated by head disturbances, dry
catarrh, nervousness and despondency.
To tlie surprise of all, ho begun to
hear and continued Improving until he
could listen to conversations, could
hear a train at a distance und oven
the singing of the birds in tho trees.
His bead and nerves became tranquil,
He got bis position back again.
This was no miracle; no surgery, no
artificial hearing devices, no electric
apparatus, no loss of time.

Stevenson's  Grave   Again   in   Empirej
To many  the  greatest  interest in
the capture of Samoa is the fact that
it  brings  the  grave  of  H.1..S.  into
the  British empire again. It is curious  to  recall  that  when    lie    first
touched the island during the South'
_ea  cruise   in   18S1.',   Stevenson    was
by  no  means   favorably  Impressed
with place or people, and intended to
stay there only a couple of weeks to
collect  material  for the  chapt.r on
Ramon in his book on the South Seas. |
The fascination of the    island grew,
however, as the days  went by, and,
abandoning the   project   of a winter
homo in Madeira in favor of S"moa_
he bought land three miles from .Apia,
nud,  except  for    occasional trips to
Sydney, never left lhe island again.

into the possession or ihe American
Numismatic Society. The piece ii

1060 and bud an Intl'lUBlo value of

Tills coin was struck at Avc-ta,
Sweden. .When fresh from the mint
it fell overboard in the harbor ot
Itiga, Russia, from which a dredge
brought it up ton years ago. Coins
of the kind wore called "plate money."
Sweden turned them out almost continuously for 110 years.
Once JIG bronze cannon were melted dowu und turned into S6,7C0 coins,
but the main purpose in minting the
pieces was to find an outlet for Hie
Swedish copper mines . without depreciating the value of the metal.

Tlie suburbs of Louvain suffered the
same fate. We can affirm that the
houses in all the districts between
Louvain and Malines, and most, of the
suburbs of Louvain itself, have practically been destroyed.
On Wednesday morning, August '.'G,
tho Germans brought to the station
squares of Louvain a group of more
than seventy-five persons, including
several promii. nt citizens of the
town, among whom were Father C'olo-
boet and another Spanish priest, and
also an American priest. The men
were brutally separated f��m their
wives and children, and after having
been subjected to the most abominable treatment by the Germans, who
several times threatened to shoct
them, they were forced to march to
tlie village of Camperhont In front of
the German troops. They ivere shut
up in '.ho village church, where they
passed the night.
About four o'clock tbe next morning a German officer told them they
had better go to confession as they
would be shot half an hour later.
Shor.ly afterwards they were again
arrested by a German brigade, which
forced them to march before them In
the direction of Malines. Iu reply to a

Wife Was Killed Before Hia Eyes
Amid the multitude of people pouring into the northern and eastern stations of Paris was ft highly intelligent
Belgian, Mr. Brugmann, of Estinnes,
who has been in the heart of the
fighting zone on the frontier. His
little child was with him.
"German horsemen," he said, "walked into my house without knocking,
and one of'them, an officer, demanded
food. My wife began to cook some
food for them. While it was cooking,
our little child, who is only seven
months old, started crying. My wife
then commenced feeding Uie child
from the breast.
"This seems to aggravate the officer, for he got up from his chair in
a temper, and knocked both my wife
and lhe child to the floor, and went to
see about the cooking of the meat
"I was mad with fury, and started
to get at him, when the other men
stopped me, and, after knocking me
senseless, threw me into the garden,
where I lay. I could not tell you how
long I had been lying there, but when
I came to my senses, I heard
sound of horsemen approaching. To
my delight 1 saw they were French.
"The Germans, on seeing them, galloped off, not, however, without losing
one of their number, who'was killed.

If Elliot's horse, now stranded

authority from the Minister of

deepseated sympathy for them in

altogether too many men, in Canada who know more about the way
the war should be conducted than
Kitchener, and it is about time
someone should be taught a lesson.
Major-General Hughes is undoubtedly acting under the instructions
of the War Office, and so far he
appears to have lived strictly up
to his orders from headquarters.
We all admire the patriotic spirit

About 9 o'clock on Monday
morning Mr. Albert Joyce's house
on the Campbell River Road caught
fire and was burned to the ground
with all the contents, including the
family's clothing, and a quantity
of money, and three canaries.
There was no fire in either stove at
the time, and the supposition is
the fire caught in the partitions
from a spark or defective chimney
There was no insurance on either
the house or contents. The house
was on Mr. Salmond's farm and j
was too close to the bush to be
taken by the insurance companies
as a risk. Mrs Joyce and her son
were in Courtenay with the cream,
and Mr. Joyce was at the barn
working, when ths fire broke out.
In endeavouring to save the woodshed, Mr. Joyce had his arm badly
burned. The family were taken
into the homes of neighbours and
will be cared for until a new house
can be built.
Messrs. Ball and Swan stated a
subscription list, and by Wednesday evening about $150 in cash had
beeu collected, and $300 worth of
goods, including lumber and supplies promised, The young men
of the neighborhood also agreeing
to rebuild the house, which will be

Nine cases have been put down
for hearing by the Board of Rail
way Commissioners at   a   meeting
to be held ut Vancouver on   Monday, November 30.
Those affecting this district are:
Application of the town of Courtenay for an order directing the
Ksquitnnull & Nanaimo Railway
Company to premit the Provincial
Government to make a road from
the Company's freight shed in a
north-westerly direction to the Lake
Trail, a distance approximitely of
900 feet, so as to obviate the haul
now necessary from the Lake Trail
road to the freight shed of approximately 5,700 feet.
Application of the Board of
Trade, Cumberland for an order
directing that an interchange track
be provided between the lines of
Canadian Collieries Limited, and
the Esquimault & Nanaimo Railway Company at or near the crossing of line of the E. & N. Railway Company and the Canadian
Collieries Limited.
The largest boat that ever came
up the Courtenay River arrived on
Saturday, Nov, 21, when the S. S.
Celtic, belonging to the Coast
Steamship Company, came up laden
with hay and feed for the Grain
Growers Association, and discharged her cargo at the Association's
wharf. She ts a vessel of 300 tons
burthen, and draws 12 feet. She
used t,he new cut recently made by
the Government dredger, and the
fact that a boat of this size was
able to do so in safety speaks well
for the action taken by the Government in dredging the channel. It
has created such a favourable impression locally that it is to be
hoped that the Government will
continue further operations, and
we believe that they will be carried
Mr. F. D. Cameron, who was
the late Government Inspector of
the work, piloted the Celtic through
the new channel to the wharf, and
took her out the following day.
With the death of one of the
first volunteers for the front from
the Comox Valley, even though he
died before he actually joined the
fighting line at the front, it is time
to consider what steps shall be
taken to remember for all time the
services of those who fell for King
and Empire in this memorable war.
The valley will rise to the occasion,
there is  no fear, but   it is  well to
hear the subject in mind
The foregoing calls to mind the
Important question of what mny be
termed the historical side of the
eventa of today and yesterday. Go
to the European countries, England
and the rest, and there is found
scarcely a foot of ground that does
not bear some reminder of tlie great
past; English churches contain the
tombs of Crusaders, anp the memorials of statesmen, soldiers and
others of note, who have gone before. Their friends raised these
monuments and treasured their
memories. Hete in the west no
attempt is being made to hand on
the past; in a short time the totem
of Comox wiil be a memory, instead
of a monument, and in the same
way, the share of Comox in the
great war of 1914 will be forgotten
unless an attempt is made to perpetuate the memory of those who
fell and died.

A Farmer'* Opinion
on Buying at Home
The following statement from a
farmer,   printed   iu  an   American
farm journal, is appropriate at the |
present time whan a   campaign endeavouring to educate the Canadian
people to buy Canadian goods is in j
progress.    If the people in Canada'
will ask for Canadian goods it will
be a great help to Canadian  ind us-
tiies, and   in the   building   up   of
them, the country  will be benefitted, and  the welfare of the people
en' a need.    The same is true local-
|v, as the farmer writing the letter
learned by practical experience ;
Wc tanners need awakening to the
diet that we bave unmistakably reached
the period where we must think nnd
plan. I nm one of the slow dinners
that hnd to be shown, nnd I nm giving
my cxperionce Unit others mny profit,
lor knowledge at the school of expedience is more expensive than ten years
Twenty-nine years ngo I began my
far.11 career. I had -an old team nnd
fifty dollars.    Our furniture was  mostly
home-made���chairs,    cupboards    and
lounge made from dry K<>o<ls boxes,
neatly covered with ten-cent creotonne
by my girl wife. We rented eighty
acres. Being a boy of good habits, I got
all needed machinery and groceries from
our home merchants on credit, until fall
crops were sold. Tlie first year was a
wet season, and I didn't make enough
to pay creditors. I went to each on dnte
of promise and explained conditions,
paying to each as much as possible, and
they all carried the balance over another
vear. They continued to accommodate
ine until I was able to buy a forty-nci e
place of my own.
As soon as I owned these few acres
the mail-order houses began sending 11 e
catalogues, and gradually I began sending my loose change to them, letting my
accounts stand in my home town, where
I had gotten my accommodation when I
needed it, 	
We then had on: of the thriftiest little
villages in the State-good line of business in all branches; merchants who
were willing to help an honest fellow
over a bad year, and a town full of people
who came twice a week to trade and
visit. Our county town supported a
library, high school, band, ball team, and
had celebrations every year, A farm
near a live town soon doubles in value.
1 sold my 40 acres at a big advance, and
bought an 80, gradually adding to it until I had 200 acres of the best land. I
then felt no need of asking favors, and
found it easy to patronize mail order
agents that capie almost weekly to our
door.' I regret to say that I was the
first in the country to make up a neighborhood bill and send it to a mail-order
house. Though we got bit every once
in a while, we got into the habit of
sending away for stuff. -
Gradually our merchants lessened their
stock of goods���for lack of patronage.
Finally we began to realize that we needed a bolt quickly for machinery, or clothing for sickness, or death; we had to
send and wait for it, which wasn t pleasant One by one our merchants moved
to 'places where they were appreciated,
and men of less energy moved in.
Gradually our town has gone down; our
business houses are "tacky" in appearance; a number are empty; our schools,
our churches, and walks are going down;
we have no band, no library nor ball
team There is no business done in the
town', and therefore no taxes to keep
things up. The hotel is closed for lack
of travel. Go down to the depot when
the freight pulls in and you see the
sequel in mail-order packages.
Nine years ago ago my farm was worth
one hundred and ninety-five dollars an
acre; today I'd have a hard matter ti sell
it at one hundred and sixty-five dollars
an acre It is ' 'too far from a live town
so every farmer has said that wants to
buy He buys a place near schools and
churches where his children can advantages I have awakened to the fact that
in helping to pull the town down, it has
cost me $5,600 in nine years, .ike the
majority of farmers, I didn't fignre far
enough ahead. ,
This sort of business means the doing
away with country towns. What will it
mean to farmers to have only a few large
cities at a distance of five hundred to a
thousand miles?
What are we to do with our children,
who are demanding even better advantages than we had ?
Those cities we help to build return
no favors; they take our mouey, but offer no credit in time of need. If we
want high schools, we must raise the
money and build near our farm homes,
send our boya and girls to the cities
���,. great expense, amidst temptations of
which the farm has no equal.
Neither am I the only awakening far
_ er. These mail-order agents that
come to our houses every week are becoming a nuisance and making it unsafe
' leave women and children alone on
iue farm. With farm cordiality we take
these strangers into our homes, often as
one of the family, and we sometimes
paid in having them entice our girls to
'.he city.
These are some facts that need consideration, and I have decided that the
safest proposition all around is for the
country people to look after their own
interests, and build up their own
country towns that bring value to their
farms.   Let those who want to patron-
��� the city mail-order houses go there

to live, getting their living where they
give their patronage.
The remainder of my life will be given
to building up the home town that I
helped to pull down. Brother farmers,

"That will he much nicer!" said
Mrs. Gray had put ou her rustling

and dropped a curtesy. She was about
to say something stiff, but proper, to
the new inmate of the house; but Barbara ran to her, put her arms round
her neck, and kissed her.
"And have you taken care of Uncle
Horace, all these year;..1" she said.
"Oh! how good of you! And now, are

"Why, of course, 1 am," said the

the Tsar, "lo assure you once more
Hint. 1 have done all iii my power to
avert war." T.iis assurance is borne
out by the diplomatic correspondence.
It shows, as the Russian foreign minister said,  that "uo suggestion held j amhass
themselves  to neutrality    on    such
t0l terms.   What he asks us is, in effect,
l���,|.!to stand by while French Colonies are
| taken  and   France  Is  beaten  so  long
, as Germany does not lako French ter-
! ritory  as distinct  I'rom  the Colonies.
j From the material point of view such
| a   proposal     is     unacceptable;     for
France,  without further ��territory in
i Kuropo  being taken  from  her,  could
. lie so crushed as to lose her position
as a great, power and become subord-
j inate   to  German  policy.    Altogether
apart from that, It would be a dls-
I grace  for  us  to make  this  bargain
I with  Germany  at  the    expense    of
France,  a disgrace  from  which  tin
good   name   of  this   country  would
never recover.   Tlie chancellor also ,n
effect asks ns to bargain away whatever obligation or interest we have
as regards the neutrality of Belgium.
We could not entertain that bargain
either." Sir Kdward Grey went on, as
already stated, to suggest other terms
on which good relations between ICng-
land and Germany might be secured.

German   chancellor  and   the   British

was caused by tlie action of German;
towards Belgium.
Belgium was constituted "nu Ind*
pendent and perfectly neutral state"
by treaties ot lij.ll _ und :t_9. To
those treaties Germany us well in
Great Itrlluln was u party. At tho outbreak of the Franco-Prussian war n
1870, the government of Mr. Gladstone proposed a treaty to Prusslt
and to France, providing that if ths
armies of either violated the neutrality of Belgium, Great Britain woulft
co-operate with uie other for lte defence. Both countries assented. T��
this action "Mr, Gladstone then an.
always attached high importance."
"We do not think i. would be right,'
lie said, "even if it were safe, to announce that we Would in any cas#
stand by with folded arms, aud se*
actions done which would amount to i
total extinction of public right i_
Europe." "I do not think we could
look oi: while the sacrifice of freedom,
and Independence was ln course ol

further consideration, tho force o!
which we must all feel most deeply,
and that is tho common interesti

governed by a desire for peace. At
an early stage in the negotiations
the British government was urged
both by France and by Russia to make
an immediate declaration of complete
solidarity with them (July 2-1). The
president of the French Republic repeated the request very strongly on
July .lO. Sir Kdward Grey thought
that he was more likely to be' useful
as peace-maker if this country maintained as long as possible an nttitud i
of detachment. Moreover, the government had no desire lo intervene
unless the honor and interests of the
country made it unavoidable. At the
same time intimations were given
lhat it should not he assumed that
under all conceivable circumstances
Kngland  would stand aside.
The official documents thus show
how unremitting were tin efforts
made by sir Edward Grey to maintain
the peaop of Europe and by whom
those efforts were frustrated.
They show also how slow the British government was to commit Britain   to  any share  in   the war.    Thai

men, and Hie dectblve defeat of an at?
laoklng column of infantry. .Major
Jeanne tells the following story of
Corporal Lupin's heroism:
"We were on the right bank o" tlie
Meus.i at Bollaire, in close touch with
the German battery. The musketry on
both sides was terrible. All at once
the Germans adopted new tactics, they
seemed to withdraw from tlieir position, and we could distinctly notice
llieir ranks splitting as if in great
confusion. It was only to bring up
more artillery, which bad been rushing from behind. The move was
smartly executed, the ranks closed
again, aud for a time tbey seemed as
if they were going to have the advantage over us. But now, again, young
Lupin had seen his chance looming,
and what he did altogether changed
the face of things. Like a Hash of
lightning tho boy dashed off under
cover of a ditch to the left of the
German battery. At 300 metres distance he found shelter behind a wall,
lie took aim at the battery in enfilade,
and his Mauser brought down in quick
succession the chief officer, the under
officers and tbe artillerymen', This
time real confusion took place at the
German battery, which was nearly
silenced. The Germans thinking that
a whole platoon was now attacking
them, directed tlieir last piece of artillery on the wall, and with a terrific
crash the wall came down, burying tbe
brave Corporal Lupin. Tlio hoy's
bravery liad weakened the German
position, and It did uot take us long
to scatter them and put another victory on our list."

The Strassburg Prophecy
Tho Prophecy of Strassburg is well
known both in Germany and Prance,
The victories of .1870 which it foretold, mado it popular across the Itliiue,
but it is equally dread since it asserts that "the German empire will
como to an end tinder its third kaiser,
after a generation and a half from
its foundation."
Now a generation and a half is forty-live years, we are therefore within
a few months of the fatal date, Win.
Moreover, tbe prophecy clearly declares that tbo last battle und complete collapse of the empire of llo-
benzollern will take place In Westphalia between  llanim  and   Cnnu.
When the Liver
Gets Torpid
There is Nothing Like Dr. Chase's
Kidney-Liver Pills to Set it Right
Mrs. C. L. Cook, 2-18 Tenth street,
Brandon, Man., writes: "I have used
Dr. Chase's Kidney-Liver Pills l'or Hie
last four years for liver trouble, and
can say that I have had great satisfaction and help from them. I find
that I do not need any doctor if I use
them wheu the liver gets torpid, and
believe that tbey are exactly suited
for my case. My husband lias used
them for kidney trouble witli good
results, and my daughter in Winnipeg
has been helped a great deal hy the
use of theso pills. Wc say we can't
keep house without them, and have
cheated the doctors here out of a
good many visits. I think Dr. Chase's
medicines'are just the thing, and have
recommended them to many people
who have used them with good results."
