When is a Kitchen
Not a "Kitchen"?
With a Hughes Electric Range, it
is a parlor. Just as cool and clean
and airy.
The modern "kitchen" deserves a
better name. In truth, it is a cooking apartment���as bright and tidy
as any other room. For since the
perfection of electric cooking, all
the clumsy ugliness and every
trace of dirt and soot and gas
have gone.
The modern cook works with her
head and not her hands. She has
hours of time that were never
hers before. Simple figures show
that in a life time five solid years
of drudgery are saved by this
practical invention.
And that isn't all. Consider the sacrifice of
happiness, health and youthful charm. Old-
fashioned methods have truly exacted a heavy

Beauty fades fast over a hot, dirty coal stove. Gas positively poisons! In com*
bustion, gas takes up oxygen and gives out poisonous fumes. That is why plants
will not live where gas is burned. ���

that will astonish you.

"Very, well." Geolfre} said careless-
ly. tic was getting used tn Ihese
��t nt nge (liiick uppearances and these
equally strange requests, "ll shall lie
its you desire, uncle."
llalph nodded. Ho gave it swift turn
of his head us if looking for some ono
unconsciously, then lie crossed tho
room and stooped down beside tlie
brass-bound box, which was at the
bottom of a pile of packages. His long
Angers felt over the quaint brasses,
"A most reuiarakble looking pattern," said Geoffrey,
It ls not a pattern al aU," Halph
ri plied.
"The quaint filigree work is a language- tho written signs ol' old Tibet,
only you aro not supposed to know
that; indeed, I only round ii out myself a fow days ago. It had beon a
long search; but, as I can only soo
with my lingers, vou can understand
thai.    Hut this is pan of llie secret,"
Geoffrey was profoundly Interested.
"roll mo whal tho language says'.'"
ho asked.
".Not now���perhaps not at all. lt is
a ghastly and terrible thing, and even
your nerves aro not fireproof. There
is only one thing 1 havo to ask you
before I efface myself lor the present.
When yon lake up thai box to carry
It down stairs it. is to slip through
your liugers.    Vou are to drop it."
"I am to drop that box. Is there
anything else?"
"Not for tho present. Vou are
smiling; I fool that you aro smiling,
l'or Heaven's sake lake this seriously; take everything that 1 say seriously, boy. Oh, 1 know what is in your

What I require by a littlo judioious
burglary, Thai is whal your unsophisticated mind tolls you. l.uler you
will know better."
llalph turned cheerfully round and
loft tho room. Ilo paused in tiio doorway. "Don'l forgot." ho said, "that
iny visit here is a secret, lu fact,
everything is a secret until I give you
permission to mako il  public."
This time lio Ion. Geoffrey had
managed to drag ono or two of the
boxes away before .Marion appeared,
She reproached him gently Hint he
had not waited for her. There might
be spooks and bogies In thoso packages capable of harm,
"I daro. say there are," Geoffrey
laughed. "Hut you wore such a long
time, Every girl seems to imagine
that an hour is like a piece of elastic
���yon can stretch it, out as long as
you llko At any rate I have done no
harm. As far as I ran judge there's
only ono good thing hero."
"And what is that?" Marion asked.
Geoffrey pointed lo tho floor.
"That om." ho said. "Tho queer
brass-bound  box at lho bottom."
"It Might Be You"
Marion caught her breath quickly.
The marble pallor of hor face showed
up more strongly against, hor dark
hair. Geoffrey caught the look and
his oyi s grow sympathetic.
"What's the matter, little girl?" he
asked,    "it   Isn't   like you  to  faint."
"Neither um I going to faint, Gooff,
llul 1 ha(| forgotten all about Unit
box. 1 cannot go Into details, for
lliere are some things that we don't
talk about to anybody. Hut that box
Is connected with rather an unhappy
time in my youth."
"Hundreds of years ago," (leoffrey
said flippantly.
"(Hi. tun it is no laughing matter, I
assure yon. When my mother was a
child she was surrounded hy all the
craft and superstition of hor race and
religion. Thai was long before she
gol convened and married my father. I don'l know how il was managed,
hut my mother never quite broke with
her people, ami onee or twice, when
she went io stay iu Tibet, I aocom-

"My mother used lo gel restless at
times, and then nothing would do hut
a visil to Tibet, Ami yet, at other
times nobody could possibly havo told
her from a European with foreign
blood in In r veins, l'or mouths and
months she would he as English as
you and I. Then llie old lit would
come over her,
"There was nol a cleverer or more
brilliant woman in India than my
molhi r. When she died she gave me
these things, and I was not lo part,
with tbem. Ami. much as 1 should
like to disobey, 1 cannot break lhat
It seemed to Geoffrey that Marlon
Bpoke more regretfully than feelingly. Ile had never hoard ber say so
much regarding her mother before.
Affectionate and lender as .Marion
was. there was not tiie least Iraee of
thos.-! characteristics In hor tone
"Did vou really lovo your mother?
Geoffrey asked suddenly.
"I always obeyed ber,' Marion stammered. "Ami I'd'rather not discuss the
subject, Geoff Oil, till y we o bail people, my mother's ancestors. They
possessed o.-i.oll knowledge fjr beyond anything known or ut'eaml of
hy the wisest western savanls. 'liny
could  remove  people    mystorlously,
t.iey cOUltl Bttlke al a long distance,
ihey could wield unseen terrors, Sucli
ns Hie terrors that hang over Ravenspur, for Instance."
.Marion smiled sadly. I lor manner
i hanged suddenly iind she was lier old
self again.
"KnotiKh of horrors," she said. "1
eamo here lo help yon.   Conio along."
The boxes were carried below until
only tho brass-bound one remained.
Geoffrey stooped lo lift it. The wood
was light und thin, lhe brass-work
was the merest tracing.
A sudden guilty fooling ounie over
Geoffrey as ho raised it shoulder-high,
Ho felt half inclined to defy his uncle
Ralph and take tho consequences, It
seemed a mean advantage, u paltry
gratifying of what, after all, might bo
mere curiosity.
Hut Ihe vivid recollection of those
strained, sightless eyes rose before
Iiim, Ralph Ravel spur was not tlie
man io possess the petty vice of irrepressible curiosity. Had it not boon
u woman he had to deal with, nnd
.Marion at that, Geoffrey would not
havo hesitated for a moment. Down
below iu Ihe hall ho heard the hollow
rasp of Ralph's voice.
Geoffrey made up his mind grimly.
He seemed to stumble forward, and
the box fell front liis shoulder, crushing down ou lho stone lloor. The
force of tho shock simply shivered it
in pieces, a groat nest of grass and
feathers dropped out, and from the inside a largo musi; of strange objects
"l am very sorry," Geoffrey stammered after the box hail fallen.
"Never mind." she said, "accidents
will happen,"
Hut Geoffrey was rapt in tlie contemplation of whal he saw before
him���some score or more of Ivory
discs, each of which contained some
painting; many of them appeared to
be portraits.
Geoffrey picked up one of (hem and
examined it curiously. He was regarding un ivory circle with a dark
fuce of a beautiful fury.
"Why, tbis ls you," Geoffrey cried.
"If you could only give way to a
curious cruel passion, it is vou to lhe
"I had forgotten that," Marlon gasped. "Of course, it Is not me. See
how old and stained the Ivory is; hundreds of years old, it. must be- Don'l
ask any more questions, but go and
throw lhat thing In the sea. Never
speak of Ihe subject again.'
Geoffrey promised. Ile strode out
of the house and along tho terrace. As
he was descending the steps, a hand
touched his arm.    Ralph stood lliere.
"Give 11 me," he said, "at onee."
"Give you what, uncle?"
"That ivory thing you have in your
pocket. I felt certain it wus there.
Give It lo mo. Assume you have cust

"Hut I promised .Marion that���"
"Oh. 1 know. And if you know
everything, you would not hesitate for
u moment to comply with my request."
"t'nele, 1 cannot do this thing."
A hard expression came over
Ralph's face.
"Listen," he said in his rasping
voice. "Tlie lives nnd happiness of us
all are at stake. The very existence
of the woman you love is In your
"I have schemed for this," he said
"I expected it. Ami now jolt are going to baulk me. It. is not as If 1 did
r.ot know what you  possess."
"That is because you must have
overheard my conversation with .Marion."
"I admit it," Ralph suid coolly. "I
listened, of course. Hut you found it
and I hoard whal 1 expected. It is
for you to say whether tlle truth
conies out or nol."
"Tbo  truth,  the   truth,"    Geoffrey
cried passionately, "it must out."
i .
"Then give me thai miniature I'll
I ask you on m,\   knees if you like."
There was an imploring ring in tbe
'speaker's voice.   Geoffrey hesitated.
"If no harm is lo come n .Marion,"
. bo said.    "I  might  break  my  word."
Ralpli gripped him by the arm con-
| vulsivcly.
"1  swear  ii." he v. diapered,    ' On

"I   should   like  lo know     why     you

it was Geoffrey who nsked the
question. Ile and Halph Ravenspur I
were mining along the lanes thai led
up to tho cliffs They wore deep :
lanes, with overhanging hedges on
oil hor side lanes where it was not
easy for two conveyances to pass,

Geoffrey, you are fond of novel road

"An ancestress of hers, no doubt'.'
"Of course.    The  idea  of  il  being '

I tion."
"Thut you  may  dismiss at  ohce,"
Ralph said.    "Tho ago of the  medallion proves that and Marion is an au-
i gel."
"Sho. is. Uncle Ralph. lam fearfully
' puzzled. What ean Marion's queer |
ancestors und ull that, kind of thing
i liuvo to do with our family terror?"
Ralph declined to say, beyond tiie
I fact that there wus a connection. A
i horseman was coming pounding down
I the lune and he stepped aside instinc-
I lively.
".lessop,"- he murmured. "1 can lell
j by tbe trot of liis horse."
���lessop, one of the farmers on the'
estate, it was.   Geoffrey rogariled his
compalnon admiringly.   Ho seemed to
be able  lo dispense  with lyes alto-,
gether.    A long course of training in j
woodcraft   stood   him   in  good   stead
now.   The apple-cheeked farmer pulled up so as to pass lhe squire's at a
walking pace.
"Morning,   Jessop,"   Geoffrey   cried
cheerfully.    "Where    are  you  going

"Is it a fact?" be demunde.1. "Is it

u short poem known us the "Empire
Builders" was published in the Canadian Magazine, This beautiful poem
dealt with such aspects of Canadian
development    thai     it.  was widely re-
prinied. Amongst others the Literary
Higist. of New york, gave it instantaneous recognition.    Encouraged by
Ibis, young SI I gave himself to the
compilation of a volume of verse
v hich was published in book form in
l!��i8. under the title "Empire Builders." The yours of intimute experience with the prairies, ns expressed
iu those verses, made them profound
lu llieir appeal, made Ihem line and
true in llieir fooling and observation.
Thoy were "born, not made," and they
curry intense conviction wilb them.
The Montreal Standard was right
when il said; 'linos like Ihese will live
iind explain lo those who never saw
the country what life ,,n the prairie
really meant. Such is the power ol'
divine poetry.' This hook wus a considerable success; it passed through
four editions and wan favorably reviewed by over two hundred representative publications. Tlio principal
elements whicli have won distinction
for il arc, an oa style, a slroug pal
rlotlc appeal, a strong portrayal of
those subtle Influences lhal peculiarly
belong to pioneer prairie life. Tills
was followed hy "Praiiie Horn" in
1!H1, and ulso a collection of his
poems under the title "Sonus of the
Prairie." Those imd a large sale, uud
the hook was taken up by publishers
on both sides of lhe Atlantic. Mr.
Stead has done much in those prairie
poems lo build up the true spirit, of
the Canadian west. It is true there is
more in Canad. than muscle and
Rocky Mountains and no one has contributed more than Mr. Sload to the
true national spirit ot whicli the free,
open, und fruitful prairie is such u
convincing illustration.
Mr. Stead has recently entered the
field of novel writers wilb a tale of
Western Canada entitled "The Hail
.lumper," which was published in
Kngland in June nnd in Canada in Sop
tcmber. . . , The story Is well
worth reading; It. is healthy, sound
and inspiring; a strong story of
human everyday life in tlie west, presented iu u popular und attractive

many lessons of Importance from the
experience of her nearest neighbor,
the I'nited States. While tlie Canadian people are always disposed to act
with independence, they are not shortsighted enough lo reject what may lie
learned with profit from another country very similar iu nature to this one.
A few weeks ago, the Interstate
Commerce Commission of the United
States bunded out n decision grunting
to the railway companies in certain
sections the right to increase their

protest. Tlie recent decision was accepted, generally, iu such good part
us to suggest thut the public is being educated in economic truths.

Mr. Cahlll of Saskatoon, speaking to

that is a very common opinion among
those  farmers.    Mr. Cahlll   however,
does nol, like some of them, resent et-
forts on the pnrt of government to
spread   agricultural   knowledge..    On
tho contrary, ho says either tlie federal or the    provincial   government
should have a model farm every thirty miles, run by trained men from the
agricultural colleges,    lie lakes il for

A Good Medicine
For the Spring
Do Not Use Harsh Purgatives���A Tonic  is   All
You Need
Not exactly sick���but not feeling
quite well. Tbat is tlie way most people I'eel in tlie spring. Easily tired,
appetite liiokle, sometimes headaches,
ami a feeling ot depression. Pimples
or eruptions may appear on the skin,
or there may bo twinges of rheiinm
tism or neuralgia. Any of these indicate that the blood is out of order-
that the indoor life of winter has left
its mark upon you and may easily do
velop into more serious trouble.
Do not dose yourself witli purga
lives, as s.o many popple do, in the
hope that yon can put your blood
right. Purgatives gallop through the
system and weaken instead of giving
strength. Any doctor will tell you
tbis is true. What yon need In spring
is a tonic that will mako new blood
and build up the nerves. Dr. Williams'
Pink Pills is tho enly medicine that
can do Ibis speedily, safely and surely. Kve'ry dose of this medicine
makes new blood which clears the
skin, strengthens tlie appetite and
makes tired, depressed men, women
anu'childreti bright, active and strong.
Mrs. S. E, Stephens, Ponoka, Alta.,
says: "I suffered severely from headaches, and was badly run down in

far more, than merely accelerate the
previous movement, it has brought
within the comprehension of town
folks, to whom '.he hind question was |
interesting mainly as an occasion for
attacking dukes, the national importance of increasing our homegrown
supply of food. Th. impression would
be far greater if the circumstances
were hotter understood. The navy has
screened us so well from danger thai
we are only faintly aware of a pack
of wolves on the other side. But the
idea of the German submarine "blockade" has had some educational value.

Improved Seed
In Improved Demand
Reports received relative to th
demand for seed this season indicate
that the orders generally have been
for higher grades. All the seed
merchants, without exception
agree to this. Several consider that
this to a noticeable extent is a result of the recent patriotism and
production campaign. Enquiries
were made in many sections of the
country and the responses received
were all of the one tenor, that greater care had evidently been taken in
ihe selection of seed, and that, with
fair weather, there was every prospect of improved growth, and consequently of improved production.
Professor Zavitz, of Ontario Agricultural College was written to, but
he being m California, Assistant
Professor W. ]. Sqtiirrell replied,
showing that thfetfe had been a
iiiarkfed increase in the demand for
Spring Wheat, Sugar Beets for feed
purposes Barley, Field Peas, Spring
Rye, Buckwheat. Husking Coin,
Swedish Turnips, Carrots, Fodder
and Silage Corn, Sorghum. Alfalfa,
and Field Beans, Oats, Japanese
Beans, Millet and clover also show
improvements. One offthe leading
merchants in his testimony as to
the results attained says that he
has gone into the matter extensively and has found anjincrease in Red
Clover amounting to 300 per cent.
Both Timothy No. |i and No. 2
show a gain. Iu ^Alsike No. 1
there is a gain of 10 per cent, and
of No. 2 over No. 3of 40 percent.
He adds: "We hatfe noticed that
the demand for {the better grades
exists very generally through
Western Ontario and that the demand for the lower grades is more
in Eastern Ontario and Quebec."
Iu testifying to an increased demand
for garden aud field root seeds, the
the principal of another prominent
house sa>s, "There is no doubt
that the agitation and educational
work which has lieen done has had
a beneficial effect {by causing the
platter to give more thought to the
use of high grade stocks." A
third leading dealer writes: "We
are of the opinion that your advertising campaign has been very
beneficial. At least we have found
it so. Not ouly has the farming
b��sidess been greater, but the demand has been generally for the
finest selection of seedjstocks," A
firm with ramification all over the
English speaking world saps: "We
noticed a marked tendency for better seed in the requirements of our
farmer customers this year. Es
pecially when ordering timothy,

firms both east a west, testify that

The noxious weeds and thistles
are to be cut bv the owners of land
and those ou the streets will be cut
by the city.
Md. Leighton said he had instructed the Constable to cut thistles
and weeds but for some reason he
had quit.
Aid. Kirkwood said that he was
under the impression that the owners had to rat weeds, etc., in front
of their property.
The Constable, who was present,
said that so many had told him that
the owners were responsible for
cutting weeds on the streets that he
had quit after doing the main street.
It was then pointed out that he
was to take his orders from the
Chairman of the Board of Works

The Farmers and How/hey Can Help
the Red Cross Society
We publish,elsewln re in this issue
an appeal on behalf of the Ited Cross
Society, ny Dr. .lames \V. Robertson.
Dr. Robertson is still best known to
tiie farmers of Canada as Professor
Robertson. He began his official public service at the o ilario Agriculture
College nearly thirty years ago. Twenty-live years ago he went to Ottawa as
dairy commissioner for the Dominion,
The dairying service of the department of agriculture soon became
known and trusted throughout Canada. From Prince Kdward Island to
Alberta, farmers profited by the illustration dairy stations and the travelling Instructors. The output of cheese
and butter In Canada added to the
reputation of its rural workers.
Cither public services of continuing
and growing value were inaugurated,
while Professor Robertson was com-
niirsioner of agriculture. Among theni
were the live stock branch, the cold
storage service, the seed grain competitions, trial shipments of fruit to
tlio United Kingdom, and extensions
nf fnarkets.
Besiilfs tin re were the manual
training movement, lho school gardens, household science, and the consolidated rural schools.
In more recent, years, Dr, Robertson was chairman of the royal commission on industrial training and
technical education. Farmers in all
provinces are familiar with Hie survey
of farms by iho commission of conservation and the Illustration farms
of lis committee on lands, of which
iic Ib chairman.
In these and man other ways, Dr-
Robertson has given the farmers of
Canada the best tliat was in him. Ho
niys he is their debtor, for many opportunities, for much kindness and for
warm appreciations. But Ihey arc his

what 1 shall call "psychology of a war

The airman received orders lo go to

be obtained, "I saw," my informant
said, "a' heavy clone iu front of me,
hanging over the sea. It. was a grey
cloud or f should not have entered it;
black clouds are well known lo be exceedingly dangerous."
"1 was flying at a height of about
7,BOO feet when I entered the cloud.
Kor a few moments all went well and
the cover was very welcome. The
cloud was of the fleecy order and I
could see my coin,; ss and barometer
quile clearly. Afler a while, however,
the niist became thicker, and l felt
that 1 was losing my bearings. I was
flying quickly but 1 did nut know in
wiiat direction. My compass began
to swing round in tlie most erratic
I way and I saw Hie barometer begin io
These manifestations did nol. however, occasion  alarm,     Hut what  followed was unpleasant. Owing to llie

I had a very difficult task to manipulate
his  elevator  and   rudder.    The  wind
shrilled about him and the density of
the cloud  increased  from moment to
moment.    Nevertheless,    it was still
possible lo distinguish llie Indicators
and  thus  lo   form  some  idea  of  the
position    of    the machine in space.
Then  suddenly    everything    became
quite dark, so that  he could not    s

to think that to have been shot by the
enemy would have been the lesser of
the two evils- However, thinking was
difficult-. I required ull my wits for
the work In hand. 1 was completely
lost- I did not even know at what angle tlle machine was flying. Then tha
thought occurred to mc that I might
have a slip-side or lhat the machine
might turn over, and I made up my

that thero are a quarter of a million

eye, even If made in Germany, would
be an enduring possession like a gold

fore, a temporary stoppage of supplies
would not cause widespread Inconvenience, But this Is not the case. Tli

Saskatchewan Leads Provinces cf Dominion In Production of Wheat

| held in Canada on  February 8, 1915.
I Tlie table divides this i ilo two classes
11) the wheat stored in elevators and
In transit, and    (2)  the quantity of
wheat in hands of farmers themselves,
' It is estimated that on tlie date named
! there were 79,130,603 bushels held in
elevators, etc., fend 29,664,000 held by
' the farmers of the Dominion, ul the
latter amount it is interesting to note
that one-third is credited to Saskatchewan with 10,289,000 bushels, which
is thc best showing made by any of
tlie provinces. Alberta eonies second
with 7,216,000 bushels, and Manitoba
third witli a toial of 6,79.1,000 bushel*.

No. 2, issued by the Publications Branch
Department of Agriculture, Ottawa,
upon the Solaum tuberosum, will convince the same he or she that there is
much to learn, A reprint from the
Agricultural Gazette, official mouthpiece
of the Department, the pamphlet is a
collection ofjartieles of superlative worth.
Introduced by a brief historical statement
showing the place the potato occupies
in the world's |domestic economy, and
especially that of Canada, by which it
would appear that the crop is worth to
this country upwards of $41,500,000 a
year, we are presented with Ja [complete
exposition of the cultivation of the
tuber by Mr. W, T. Macoun, Dominion
Horticulturist, Mr, T. Gussow, Dominion Botanist, explains, first the diseases to which the potato is subject and
how they can be controlled, and next,
the results of inspection under the "Destructive Insect aud Pest Act." Essays

Letter to The Editor
Editor Courtenay Review
Sir,���Allow me space in your
, valuable paper to try allfj relieve
my feelings, and bring the white
employers of Courtenay to see the
uecesisty of employing the white
man aud not the Chink and Jap as
is being done at present. It did
not occur to me to .write to your
paper until Tuesday, the 13th inst.
when walking from my place on the
Dyke to do the first day's work I
had this month, my attention was
drawn to the large number of
Chinks and Japs working for the
different people along the road. A
little further along I met wagons
loaded with empty milk cans. Still
f-r.bcr tn I came to three laundries
(Chinks,) Numerous persons in
Courtenay employ yellow help in
their kitchens. Remember there
are white men almost starving in
your midst. If they cannot find
work now, whit must they do next
winter ? They must steal, and as
they cannot steal from those who
have nothing, it will be the employ*
ers of yellow labor who will suffer
when the white man it driven to do
it by desperation, and you cannot
blame the Jap or Chink, you un st
blame the white employer of yellow
Yours truly
