Cook  by Wire
Electricity provides the cleanest, the
most sanitary and the most hygenic
method of cooking
The Electric range closely parallels the wood or gas
range but _excells either in flexibility of operation
With the Electric Range you cook
under ideal conditions because
Each cooking unit can be switched to high, medium or simmering heat -and kept there as
long as needed
It is the acme of cleanliness
Practically no heat escapes into the room
The air is not vitiated
There is no contamination of food
You save food values through the retention of the
essential salts and meat juices, on a six pound
roast the saving is nearly a pound
All the latest standards of range construction are
used, including high oven, thermometer or
glass door, porcelain splashers
The fire risk is lessened because there are no open
We will gladly give you information on rates and

We Have Been Burned Ont and Need
the Money Badly
As a general rule subscribers
to the Review are prompt in
paying their subscriptions, but
there are quite a few who seem
to forget that it costs something
to print a paper, even a modest
effort like The Review. To the
latter we would make the request
that tbey liquidate their indebtedness as soon as they can find it
convenient to do co. If they
owe two or three years and feel
thev cannot afford to pay it all
at the present time, surely they
cau arrange to pay at least half
the amount, This notice is for
all who ate behind in the payment of their subscriptions.

How to Drink Milk
Sip milk -lowly. Take four minutes ai least lo finish a tumblerful,
and lake only a good Icaspoonful al
one sip. This is llie ideal way ill
which lo drink milk. When milk
finds ils way inlo tlie stomach, it is
instantly curdled, If you drink a
large quantity al one, il is curdled
into one big mass, only on the outside of wliicli llie juices of the stomach  can  work.
If you drink il iu little sips, each
sip is curdled up by itself, and llic
whole glassful finally finds itself in
a loose lump, made up of little* lumps,
upon which the stomach's juices may
act readily. Many people who like
milk, and know its value as a
strength-giver, think they cannot use
it because it gives them indigestion.
Mosl of them could use it freely if
they would drink it in the manner
In Tropica! Countries
Liver Chill Very Common
In    Northern   latitudes    also   the
liver is a very unruly organ and requires careful watching. The concentrated vegetable juices in Dr.
Hamilton's I'ills act directly upon
the liver and stimulate its action lo a
normal basis. The blood is purified,
the skin grows clear, headaches disappear and robust health is firmly
established. No medicine for the stomach, liver or kidneys can compare
with Dr. Hamilton's Pills, 25c box

Dynamiting Mosquitoes
Dynamiting stagnant water holes
is the new remedy discovered by citizens of West llaildoiificld, N.J., for
the wiping oul of mosquito-breeding
For years past a number of pools
lying between the railroad and llad-
don avenue have furnished a bountiful crop of llie big Jersey "skcclcrs."
These stagnant lagoons could nol he
drained into the city sewerage he-
cause they lay lower than lhe sewers,]
and even if drained, would till again i
with   lhe  first   rain. I
Someone suggested dynamiting the I
holes, aud au expert was sent for.1
He drill,-,1 holes twenty feet iu depth
iu ihe centre of each pool, then dropped a heavy charge of dynamite inlo

ihe destruction of veins of clay or
rock iu such a manner thai the sur-
facc water soon disappeared into llic

The Only Peace Possible
When   Germany Has   Sacrificed It's
Dream of Universal Domination
Today lhc only peace possible is
wiih a Germany having sacrificed its
dream of universal domination and
having declared willingness lo conform wilh llie. general conditions
whjch must govern ihc society of
nations, When ihc* German people,
cither with or without ils present
government, comes to ad,,pi ihis
view, ihen lhc possibility of coming
io au agreement    will    exist.      The
peace will impose ilself unhindered
by any criminal intent. It was the
kind of peace of which Yandcrvclilc
spoke recently in llic name of the
Belgian people. It is ihis kind of
peace wliicli the French Socialist
parly lias not erased lo outline, It
is Ihis kind of peace which France
and her allies intend to secure. ��� a

Preservation of Fence3
An experiment covering twenty
years to determine the value of post
treatment  was  recently  completed.
The posts were treated by lhc following methods:
1. By charring,
2. By filling rock around lhc post
when scl.
3. Putting on llic preservation
with a brush.
*1. By lhc open lank method of
treatment, which consisted iu keeping, the post and treating fluid heated up to the boiling point for two lo
three hours and then letting ihem
cool down in llic fluid.
The conclusions readied arc as follows:
1. That charring llie parts placed
under ground dues not add lo their
2. Thai filling iu around llic posl
wilh stone or brickbats docs nol increase ihc durability.
3. Thai creosote is a better preservative llian coal lar or petroleum.
4. That brush treatment is not
nearly as effective as open lank
5. Thai ilieaii woods like cotton-
wood, when trealed by the open tank
method, are cheaper and just as durable as  llic high-priced cedar posts,

"It's a Great Shame"
One of lhc la,lies of lhc Post Of-
hVc Department recently approached
the head of her branch and asked in
loncs of noticeable indignation, "Is
it true, Mr. Smith, that the Department publishes a book iii which all
our ages are si,own?" Repressing an
inclination lo reply that only one age
for eaVh person was shown, Mr.
Smith lold llic lady lhat llicrc was
such a book published, for official
purposes, bul lhat there was no occasion for distress as lhc book was confidential. "I don't care," she burst
oul, "it's very wrong, and I'm very
angry; it ought not to bc allowed;
it's a great shame," and so on. Eventually, however, she calmed down
and said, "Well, of course, I know
you can't help il, Mr. Smith," and
then, "Would you mind telling mc
how old Miss So-and-so is?"���St.

Children Often Seem to Pine Away
and Ordinary Medicine Does
Not Help Them
The hcallh of children between the
ages of twelve and eighteen years,
particularly in the case of girls, is a
source of    serious    worry  lo nearly
| every mother, The growth ^nd developnieni lakes so much of their
strength that in many cases they
actually seem lo be going iulo a decline.    Thc appelilc is tickle, brighl-
j ness gives way lo depression, llicrc
arc headaches, fits of dizziness, palpitation of the hearl at lhc least exertion, and sometimes fainting. The
blood has become thin and watery
and thc sufferer must have something
lhat will bring lhe blood back to its
normal condition. At this stage no
other medicine can equal Dr. Williams' Pink Pills. Their whole mission is to make new, rich bloqd which
reaches every part of the body,
bringing back health, strength and
energy. Miss Helena Taylor, West
Toronto, says: "Two years ago I
was so badly run down wilh anaemia
that sonic of my friends did not believe I would get better. I could not
go upstairs without stopping to rest,
suffered from headaches, loss of appelilc, and for two months of the
time was confined lo lhc house. 1
was under tbe care of a doctor, but
the medicine I took did not help mc
in the least. A friend advised my
mother to give mc Dr. William's'
Pink Pills, and although I did not expect they would help mc after the
doctor's medicine had ��� failed,_ I
thought they might bc worth trying.
After taking two boxes there was
such a marked change for lhc bcUcr
that people asked mc if I had changed doctors, and I readily told them
the medicine lhat was helping me.
I continued taking thc pills until I
had used eight boxes, when my
health was fully restored, and 1 have,
since enjoyed the best of hcallh. 1
hope my experience may be the
means of convincing some sickly person that Dr. Williams' Pink Pills can
restore  thein  lo health."

Relations between thc Government
of India and the Ameer of Afghanistan continue lo bc of the friendliest
character, and the latter is scrupulously inaiii',.ining au attitude of
neutrality which he promised at the
beginning of the war.
The northwest frontier, partly owing lo thc Ameer's friendly attitude,
partly to the punishment inflicted
'last year on recalcitrant sections, and
| partly to lhc exposure of German
attempts lo introduce the religious
|element into the war, is enjoying unprecedented peace. The Afridis, the
strongest and most important tribe,
have remained staunch throughout lo
their cngagcmculs, thereby setting
on example of loyalty to their neighbors. The only troublesome factors
arc the Mali Suds, a tribe of hereditary robbers and raiders. Otherwise the restless borderland is quieter than it lias been for many years.
Maddening Calendar
Turkish System of Keeping Account
of Time Leads to Many
'I'he Turks count Iheir day from
one sunset to the next sunset, dividing lhc twenty-four hours iulo twelve
as wc do. This is plain sailing, hut
unfortunately sunscl does nol fall at
the same hour day afler day,- and
llicrc ensue horrible complications to
lhc innocent European.
By way presumably of jest the
Turkish steamers follow Turkish
and llieir railways Prankish lime.
'Hie. rich have watches specially
constructed with two dials, one
showing each time,
Apparently some enterprising* Os-
manli thought that lhc Turkish calendar erred on the side of simplicity
and kindly invented a new complication. The Mohammedan year dates
from the flight of lhc prophet in the
seventeenth century. Each year the
first monili, Mahairan, comes eleven
days earlier, so the months do not
mark  the  seasons  like ours.
There is one more section for the
benefit of the Turkish peasant, who
in his rural retreats knows nothing
of months. For him thc year Is composed of two seasons���hidralis, beginning on May 6, and kassin, beginning Nov. 7���so to him April 20
is the one hundred and sixty-fourlll
day of kassin.
Health cannot bc looked for in the

For Asthma and Catarrh.���It is

directions will give immediate relief.
Many sufferers from these ailments
have found relief in the Oil and have

"Now, children," said the teacher,
"I have been talking about cultivating a kindly disposition, and I will
now tell you a little story. Henry
had a nice lillle dog, gentle as a

contrary, was always fighting other

The English arc a people of hypocrites, liars and ruffianly thieves. The
Russians are barbarians, whose sole
idea of warfare is lo commit the
most horrible atrocities. The Italians arc an absolutely putrid nation,
The French, whom their government
for the moment holds under ihc
knout, arc, according lo Voltaire,
half ligcr and half monkey. Dirty
and ignorant in time of peace, they
have distinguished themselves in the
course of this war by savagely maltreating German women and children and innumerable prisoners. ���

Process of Making Tapioca
The origin of tapioca which is becoming very expensive under the
war demands is probably lhc least
known of any article on the market,
ll is manufactured from tapioca flour
on tlie Islands of Singapore, Penailg
land Java. This flour is made from
the tapioca potato, tlie root of the
cassava or manioc plant. These potatoes often weigh ovcr twenty
pounds. They arc washed, skinned,
cut into small pieces and put into a
grater, where small circular saws reduce them to pulp. The fine, flour is
separated by a revolving drum, and
I after being washed six times is dried
[on heated trays. It is then made into
dough and pressed through sieves and

lias got the better of all the BoSclie

The people of British Columbia
have given a decision in favor of
two great reforms, namely, the enforcement of Prohibition, and the
extension of the franchise to wo-
men. Each measure has been carried after years of careful propaganda, and the object of each, as
stated, is to increase national efficiency . It is useless for anti-prohibitionists to claim that liquor will
be as easily obtainable as ever, for
only by illicit means will such a
state of affairs be possible. The law
will assuredly come down upon
those who infringe the act, and
with both feet, for tlie Prohibitionists will watch th. working of the
act, having won Its passage.    Also

Letter to the Editor
Editor Courtenay Review
Dear Sir; -
Kindly allow me a lillle   space   in
thc Review to thank   Mr     R,   U,
Hurford for his reply to my   question, re   money  donated   to   Red
Cross Societv by Oreatuery patrons
also to call attention to Ibis branch
of  Red   Cross   donations,    When
Mr I'cnn canvassed for this   fund
< just before he left for service overseas) bis idea was to try  and   persuade each patron of the Creamery
and each patron of thc Condensory
to contribute one dollar per month
for the duration of the war.
This idea if it could have been carried out on tiie.se lines would  have
brought in probably over one hundred dollars per mouth.   Judging
from what information  I   have  at
hand it has realized only   a   small
percentage of   that.    During   the
time the war has been   in progress
a very large amount of money hac
heen raised in this   vallev  by   the
different patriotic societies, but this
has nearly all  been   done   by   the
ladies, and Sir, I think   that  Mr
Feun felt that there was something
remaining for the men to do,   and
he realized the need of a   fund like
that which he tried   to   institute.
Some regular monthly contribution
Now, Sir, there is a much   greater
need for this   fund   today  than  a
year ago.    During that year quite
a large number of  men   have   left
tlie Valley for service Overseas, and
in that connection  it is necessary'
for those remaining at home to face
some unpleasant   truths,   namely,
how soon may some of those men
be returned.to us totally   disabled,
or how soon may some more of them
be called upon to make the supreme
sacrifice.    Some who may leave us
with a wife and family not too well
provided   for,   and   the   questiou
comes, 'What ure we   men doing
about It?"   Some of us have suc
ceeded in making ourselves believe
that wc are needed here and cannot
be spared for service overseas,
lint do o���y of us really believe
that we have given every dollar
that wc could spare for patriotic
ptirposes, or done all we possibly
could in other ways to help bring
this terrible war to a speedy finish
in our favor. With this idea in
view will .very man in this valley
give 50 cents each month (as a
starter at any rate) towards creating n fund I'or Patriotic Purposes,
part of this fund might be used for
any of the patriotic purposes urgently requiring money, but a good arcll.diocese ot
balance might be kept in tlie .bank ,il0CeHr. 0[ jassy
for the npeds nf H_��   rmHtm*A  ar.r. I
for the needs of the returned soldiers, or the wives and families and
any who may not be permitted to
retvirn. In this connection u.i
doubtedly our new government will
feel its responsibility in regard to
those returned soldiers able to fill
government positions and give them
the positions iu preference to any
of us stay at homes. But, there
may be some who the government
will not be able to help, and tor
such cases I think sir, we are ourselves responsible, A committee
might be selected as trustees of this
fund, also collectors appointed
Roumania and its Religion
Roiunania's entrance into the
war receives renewed attention to
that Country.
Military writers generally agree

throw 400,000 effectives into the
field, They estimate she has ammunition enough for not more than
four or five months, except for Jar-

inaile for bringing in large additional iiiuotints through Russia,
Roumania herself does not possess
large arsenals or industrial plants
.suited for the purpose.
Roumania is situated between the
Black Sea, the Danube, the Carpathian Mts, and the Purtb,

What Britain Has Done

In a recent article Sir Gilbert Parker tells, in thc following sentences,
of a few things that Great Britain
has done since August, 1914.

an army and navy personnel of nearly

The Hriiish farmers desire to help
these people to make a fresh start. A
general committee thoroughly representative of Hriiish agriculture has
been formed, and county agricultural
societies have, unanimously formed
committees to arrange for contributions. Last spring considerable quantities of seed grain, livestock and implements were furnished to farmers
in the regions of France from which
the enemy had been driven back al
the battle of thc Manic. Some of the
implements were of Canadian make
and have given much satisfaction. It
is intended to extend similar aid to
farmers in Belgium, Poland and Serbia when the time comes.
New Zealand ���_���_ Australia have

desired to have a Canadian committee formed under lhc patronage of
H.K.H. the Duke of Connaughl and

Canadian farmers and others will bc

Saw an "Omen'* of Victory
An officer with an eye (or the
mysterious nolcd two strange incidents in ihc "great push," says the
London Globe. Just before the offensive four dogs came out of the
German lines. The Germans whistled and shouted,, but the deserters
held steadily on. Our men hailed it
as an omen.
The other incident was still more
curious. In Ihis war scourged zone
Ihere is a road called . Crucifixion
avenue. When our men reached this
road they found every Irce destroyed
by the bombardment ��� lhc road had
been flanked hy trees on both sides.
But the large -crucifix still stood
(here, and when it was examined
closely it was impossible lo find a
single trace of shrapnel fire.
Now to a German people who
would drive lhc Hoheuzollcnis from
lhe throne, how warm would be the
handclasps of lhc democratic people
of thc world!
But if the German people keep
these homicidal maniacs on the
throne, and worship th.m as gods,
it will be necessary, of course, to
look to thc priming of our guns and
keep our powder dry.���Winnipeg

Retort of Man Who Has Never Read
of the War
A Plymouth Brother, who appeared at thc Essex appeal tribunal, made
the extraordinary statement that he
had not read anything about the war.
"Do you mean to say that your
country's affairs do not interest
you?" asked Mr. C, Hope, K.C.
"Not its warfare," was the reply.
"Do you know what is happening
to   Kngland?"    "Only   by  hearsay."
"Do you know England is in danger of invasion?"   "I have heard so."
"Do you believe il?" "I don't attach much importance to rumors."
���'What would bc England's position if everybody accepted your
view?"    "God  would protect."
He was ordered to do work of national importance.
Costiveness and its Cure. ��� When
the excretory organs refuse to perform their functions properly tlie intestines become clogged. This is
known as costiveness and if neglected gives rise to dangerous complications. Parmclec's Vegetable Pills
will effect a speedy cure. At the first
intimation of this ailment the sufferer should procure a packet of thc
pills and put himself under a course
of treatment. Thc good effects of the
pills will bc almost immediately evident. '
A Farmer's Party
A "Farmer Party" was recently
held in Chicago, the invitations reading: "Please conic like fanners and
wear farmer's clothes." Thc hostess,
who hadn't been near a farm for 20
years, thought that lhc gucsls would
ride to lhe party iu ox-carls and wear
overalls or other working clothes.
To her great surprise they came in
automobiles and wore regulation full-
dress clothes. All of which goes to
show that it is a great compliment
to bc called a farmer nowadays.

In An Enemy Trench
Twenty-five    Feet    Below    Ground
With the Germans
What life in an enemy trench is
like may be gleaned from thc per-j
sonul description of a Tommy's brief
taste of captivity in one: "There
were eight or nine other Englishmen,
all wounded, lying Ihen-; an' I was
ill fronl; righl in the mouth of the
dllg-OUt, where I could sec lhe
trench, where a lot o' Uoclics was
sitting, smoking cigarettes an' talking in their own lingo. Ily an' bye a
German officer comes along. I kncwl
lie was coming, by the way those
chaps all jumped an' dropped their,
siuokin' and talkin'. They came lo
attention pretty smart; I'll say that
for 'em, The officer spoke to the
sergeant and wc were all dragged oul
of llie dug-out and taken down thc
trench to another one; down two
passages and a lot of steps; must ha'
bin five an' twenty feet down, 1
would say. It seemed lhe officer was
put out at us bein' left where wc
could see anything. Well, there was
no fear of us sceiu' much where they
put us then.
That was in the afternoon, as it
might be this afternoon. . And all
that night, and all the next day, and
the day after that wc lay there; and
all that passed our lips was some
mighty dirty water in a jar lhat was
given us by a lull Bochc that was on
sentry iu the passage, the lirsl morning.
One feller said it was lhc Bodies
blowin' of us up. Hut I saw we'd
got no sentry, an' somehow 1 reckoned it must he our boys back again
in Contalmaison. I'd 've liin out of
il quick if it hadn't bin for my knees.
There was a young lance-corporal
nrsl me, wounded in the shoulder;
very sick an' queer he was. I asked
him lo gel along the passage a bit,
an' give a shoul to tell we was English there., lie gol out all right; a
plucky lad, because Iwo more bombs
burst after he started. An' nex' thing
wc knew Ihere was a young English
officer down among us, an' half a
dozen of our boys afler him. My
God, sir, wc was glad to sec his face!
I tried lo come to attention an' salute
him. Lord, I'd 've saluted his boo'.s
or his cap, if I'd seen 'em empty on
the ground! It makes you think
when you've seen Bochc officers,
Then when you sec one of ours you
know what an officer is, an' what a
gentleman is.
Denuding Britain of
Finest Forests
Re-Afforestation  Will Be Necessary
After the War
So much Britisii timber is being
used for the war, it is said by advocates of a Government scheme for
rc-afforestation that if the war lasts
another three years thc Britisii Isles
will be entirely denuded of timber.
One feature of the situation is
that some pre-war sources of supply
arc no longer available. Fifty-five
per cent, of timber imported in normal times came from Russia, Sweden
and Germany; four per ccnl. from
Norway and 41 per cent, from
France, Portugal and Spain. Since
the war this country has had to rely
partly on supplies from Norway and
Sweden and largely on French and
Portuguese supplies, and to make
good the deficit from woods and forests in the Britisii Isles.
To maintain lhe supply thc nation
is making huge inroads into its own
standing limber. It is impossible to
travel through parts of Scotland
without seeing the wholesale cutting
of trees. The axe is making a clean
sweep of Ihc whole woods.
There are only three million
acres of wooded land in thc United
Kingdom at tli; present lime,

More Women in German Universities
One of the results of the present
world war is thc astonishing increase
of woman students in all German universities. Even the University of
Muenstcr, which formerly did not encourage thc feminists, now has 271
women among its students. Some of
them arc widows of soldiers.
Before the war the women only iu
rare cases studied anything but medicine, languages, philosophy, literature and art, but now they are taking
up all kinds of scientific professions,
even engineering, architecture and
theology. The greatest attraction
for them is law, however. In a few
years Germany will have more women attorneys than any other country iu the world.
