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, i including high oven, thermometer or
glass door, porcelain splashers
The fire risk is lessened because there are no open

The Christian Scientist, published at Boston, Mass , in a lengthy
article ou Vancouver Island, has
the following; 'A traveler recently
here predicted that the Island is
destined lo rank as one of the
world's great louring fields, This
is indicated partly because the peo- '
pie have taken pains to make the
wonders of llieir home accessible.
Realizing what an asset they possessed in llieir rugged scenery of
well nigh unlimited variety, they
set about putting up excellent hotels, and constructing a syslem of
splendid highways, so that those
who came might do Iheir sightseeing in comfort. One of the delightful trips on the island may be
taken by motor car from Victoria
north lo Alberni. The island highway runs ihree quarters of the distance; this road is bel eved to be
one of the finest automobile highways an tbe continent. Tin (iist
20 miles of the MalaHat Drive affords views that foi scenic beauty
and variety compari favorably with
those to be found aliywllele ill
America. Then the route leads
throuch fanning country, past
lakes aud hills, and finally takes
the traveller through a great forest, 1111 to the summit, from which
he may look down on thc harbor
of Alberni."

Letter to the Editor.
Editor Courtenay Review
Dear Sir���:As your remarks re
electric lighting issue are a little
misleading allow me to state the
views of the council a�� I interpret
ft is not a question of calling
oneanotheis bluff as you intimate,
but tiie Courtenay Electric Light
Co. are under tiie impression that
the city accepted the terms of Mr.
Peterson's contract in which all renewals of lamps were to be supplied
at expense of consumer. Vou state
that minute book clearly states the
situation; whereas nothing can be
found to show that this decision
was reached. The ex-aldermen
deny that the city accepted Mr.
Peterson's contract, furthermore
the Electric Light Company released Mr. Peterson of this contract.
Last year's council did not sign a
single bill for renewals of lamps,
and in conversation with four of
last year's aldermen, two believe
that city should pav I'or renewals
ami two declare that company
should keep lamps in working order
Yuu know ihe present council
trys to be fair. They have offered
to pay for lamp outside McPhee's
out of their own pockets, but   will
net spend the city's money unless
it is absolutely clear that the Company's claim is just.
I can emphatically state that no
contract to pav for renewals has
been signed by any councilman at
any time nor is there any motion
on minute book that city pay for
Yours very truly
R. U. Hurford.
[Aid. Hurford is quite right in
hi s contention that Ihe city has
never signed any agreement that
thev would pay for any renewals
of lamps, and we were of the impression that the Council only
agreed to pay for the "juice" used
in the four central lamps when they
were taken over by the city at tbe
request of Mr. Peterson and others
but the minutes referring to the
matter read: that the city assume
the responsibility for the four central lignts.���Now what is the responsibility.]

MODERN war is madt
���    well as by men and 1
by resources, by money, by foodstuffs, as
_ by men and by munitions. While war is our first business, it is the imperii ve duty of every man in Canfida to produce all
that he can, to work doubly hard while our soldiers are in the trenches,
in order that thc resources of thc country may not only he conserved, but
incrfeascd, for the great struggle that li .-s before uo. ' Work ar.d Scve'
is a good motto for War-time."���SIR THOMAS WHITE, Minister
nf Finance,
WHAT IS NEEDED? these in particular���
We must feed ourselves, feed our soldiers, and help feed the Allies.   The need is greater in
1916 than it was in 1915.    The difficulties are greater, the task is heavier, the
need is more urgent, the call to patriotism is louder���therefore be
thrifty and produce to the limit.
"THE   AGRICULTURAL   W/SR   BOOK   FOR   1916" is now in the press.   To be had from
The Publications Branch, Department of Agriculture, Ottawa.
