Old fashioned stoves are
furnaces. And such kitchens are much like boiler-
rooms.
Always there is soot���and
smoke���and gas ���and
ashes. Always a fire to be
built, constantly watched
and stirred Always a litter of the old-stove utensils. And always a task
to be done.
Is your wife always to
spend those hours over a
hot, dirty fire? If you
could only know sometimes what she is thinking.
Do you know that thousands of women cook their
meals by the snap of a switch? Yes, in kitchens as
cool and clean and tidy as any parlor. For there is
no mme or dirt or reeking gas in electricity. And
the Hughes Range heats the food and not the kitchen.
Women are fast finding freedom from the tiresome
kitchen tasks. They deserve it. A few years from
now they'll show it in appearance and health.
Hughes Electric Ranges
You can give your wife this happiness. It means new health, new freedom
and an extra hour each day for rest and pleasure. You can save her all that
time and work and trouble for 3 cents a day!

back upon iter husband,

Marion smilingly declined. She
touched tbe back of Ravenspur's

"I am going to slay here just for a
few minutes and take care of grandfather," she said; "then I will go to

The young people went off together
and in the excitement of lhe game
olher llilngs were forgotten. Vera
played well and Geoffrey had all his
work cut oul lo beat Iter, Finally
Vera ran oul with a succession of brilliant. Ilnkes
"Well, of all the luck!" Geoffrey
cried. "Let's play another .name, but

The voice ceased. In lhai instant, j

Then the flgur, took something
trom Ills pocket, Hie air was tilled
with a pungent, sickly odor, and Geoffrey felt liis strength going from him.
He. was powerless to move a limb.
One of those greasy hands gripped his
throat,

knew that lhat overpowering blinding

He made one other futile struggle

caught the gleaming circle of a knife

frightened animal might do.
The grlii relaxed an dGeoffrey staggered lo the lloor.
"That was a narrow escape," a
bourse  voice  suid.
"I'ncie  Halph!" Geoffrey    panted,
How did you gol ben" And where

"I was close at band." Halph said
COOlly, "A iniiiulcs or two sooner

"I.cl us follow blm." (leoffrey cried
eagerly.    "He cliu'l be far awuy!"
Hut Ralph did nol mo,e. Ills face
was expressionless once more Ile
did not appear to in- iu the least Inter*
esied or excited.
"it is useless," he sah', lu his dull,
mechanical tones. "For In this mailer
you are ns blind as I am. There are
ibiiigs beyond your comprehension, 1
am going down to see whal Is happening below."
ile began lo teel bis way to the
staircase, Geoffrey  following.
"Are we never geing to do anything?" tbe younger man exclaimed
passioiiHicly.
"Ves, yes. Palletice, lad! Tbe
day of reckoning Is coming as sure as
1 Hlauil before you. But to follow

.Mrs. Gordon -sat In the dining ball,
pale, ashen, und trembling from head
to foot, it seeemd as if an ague bad
fallen upon her ��� Every now and then
a short hysterical laugh escaped her
lips, more horrible and more impressive than any outbreak or fear r
passion.
And yet there was nothing lo be
done, nothing to be said: tbey could
only look at her with moist, eyes and
a yearning sympathy that was beyond
all words.
"It will puss," Mrs. Gordon said
faintly. "We all buve our trials; and
mine are no worse than the rest. Gordon, lake ine to bed."
Sbe passed up the stairs leaning on
lhe arm of her husband. Time wus
when these tilings demanded vivid explanations. They were too significant
now. Ralpli. crept fumblingly over
the floor till he stood hy Marion's
side. 'He touched ber hand; he seemed to know where to llnd it. The band
was wet.   Halph touched her cheek.
"You ure crying," he said, gently
for him
"Vis," Marion admitted softly. "Oh,
If I could only do anything to help, if
you only Knew how my benrt goes
out lo these poor people!"
"And yet it mny be your turn next,
Marion. Hut I hope not���1 hope not,
We could not lose the only sunshine

Murion choked down a sob. When
she turned to Halph again be was far

feeling, feeling always for the clue
to the secret.

CHAPTER XII.
Geoffrey Is Put to the Test
The house was quiet at last. When
these mysterious things had first happened, fear and alarm had driven
.sleep from every eye, and many was

morn chased tlieir fears away.

Ravenspurs come to meet these horrors with grim tenacity. They were all

with n hope that they might meet
again on the morrow. Only Geoffrey
was up walling for his nncie llalph-
He came at length so noiselessly
that (leoffery was startled, and motioned lo blm tnat be should follow
bim without a word.
They crept like ghosts along the
corridor until Ihey reached a room
with double doors at the end of the
picture gallery. Generations ngo Ihls
room had been built for a Ravenspur
who had developed dangerous homicidal mania, und in this room he hud
lived virtually a prisoner for many
years,
After tbey bad closed the Iwo
doors, a heavy curtain was drawn
over the inner one. and Halph
fumbled bis way to the table uud
lighted a candle.
"Now we can talk." he said quietly,
"but not loud. Understand that the
matter Is to be u profound secret between us and that not a soul is to
know of it;  not even Vera"
"I have already given my promise,"
suid Geoffrey.
"I know. Still there is no ha'n In

"Vou arc n good lad. Turn tho
lamp down very low and then open
tho  window.    Have you  done  that."
"Ves, 1 can feel the cold all' on my
face." .
Ralph crossed to the window nnd,
putting out his hand, gave Ihe (|iiulnt
mournful call of the owl. There was
a minute's pause und then came the
answering signul. A minute or two
later und a man's head and shoulders were framed in ihe open window.
Geoffrev would have dashed forward,
but Ralph held blm back.
"Not so impatient," ho Bald. "This
is  n  friend."
Geoffrey nsked no questions,
though he was puzzled to know why
the visitor did not enter Ibe eastlo by
the usual way. Ai Ralph's request he
clospd the window and drew the
heavy curtains an.', lhe lamp was
turned up again-
"My nephew," said Ralpli. "A line
young fellow, and one lhat you and I
can trust. Geoffrey, this is my old
friend SerglUB Tehigorsky."
Geoffrey shook hands with Tehigorsky. To his Intense surprise he
saw lhai the face of the stranger wus
disllgured in the sume wny as that of
his uncle. Conscious tbat his gaze
was somewhat rude he looked down.
Tehigorsky smiled. Very litlle escaped him and to blm the young man's
mind  was us clear as a  brook.
"My appearance startles you," he
said. "Some day you will learn how
your uncle and myself came to be
both disfigured in this terrible way.
That secret will be disclosed wben
the horror that haunts Ihis bouse is
lifted."
"Will it ever be lifted, sir?" Geoffrey asked-
"We can do so at any time." Tehigorsky replied iu his deep voice. "Vou
may he surprised to hear that we
ean place our hands on the guilty
party at a moment's notice and bring
the offender to justice. Your eyes ask
me why we do not do so instantly. We
refrain' as the detectives refrain from
arresting one or two of a big gang of
swlnolers, preferring to spread their
nets till they have them all in their
meshes. There ure four people In

lot of them, or lliere will be no pence

New Floating Mine
It Has Many Advantages Over Those
In   Use   by   Other   Nations
Tbe British navy has developed a
new type of mine, which, according to
tiie Scotsman, marks a new era in this j
branch of warfare.    The German and
l-'rench otlallng   mines have not pre.-;
senterl such a very difficult problem
because  It  has  ! een    comparatively
easy to sweep theni up. owing to tlieir
suspension tackle.   The new British
mine bus no floats and uo tackle. It
can be ejected I'rom a torpedo tube or!
incontinently   thrown   overboard,   if'
desired, it ean be set to rest on the [
sea floor until the minute chosen by
those placing It, when it will    come ,
up,  not  to  tbe  surface,  but  to  the!
proper depth ut which to    meet the
rushing hows of a (hip.
As soon ns the mine, floating free,
reaches a certain depth Ihere Is set
up u series of movements which put
into operation a thy propeller, und
Ihls promptly kicks tlie mine up to
the proper level, nud then stops until agnln called upon, lt is not a
mine easily caught in sweeping operations, as il progresses under water
in a series of slow "leaps," which
never reveal it, as il cannot leap beyond its fixed limit of buoyancy.

Horses or Gasoline
Craze For Gasoline Engines Fast Dying Out in the West
Saskatchewan formers are apparently coming tn the conclusion that
gasoline tractive power Is less economical than that supplied by animals.
The lion. W. It. Motherwell recently
slated that the Saskatchewan Investment Co. nt Alerli'.go had discarded
the six large engines tltey had in
favor of oxen, 1G0 oxen being required
In do the old work. At the Horse
Breeders' convention held in Regina,
the secretary in his report claimed
that tho craze for gasoline engines
was fasl dying ont and that the use
of horses was being reverted to. The
result Is lhat mixed farming lu this
province lias received a considerable
Impetus,
The reporl   or the sheep Breeders'
association also held In Regltia showed (here were 126,000 sheep in Saskatchewan in l!UI. Ol' aboul one to
every Ilve persons. Tlie price realized
for wool In i'.'M was ITU cents as
compared witli 13 and n cents in
1913.
The outlook for Increase In sheep
production Is favorable, the only
I rouble being dugs. It. was decided to
take up with tlio provincial government to see If all dogs In rural districts with the exception of lliose kepi
on thc farm for utility purposes could
not be done away with. Over 1,000,000
hogs were produced 111 Saskatchewan
lu 1914, as compared with about BOO,-
000 in 1913.

body can be distinguished aud any
decided movement can be detected by
an expert rifleman at a distance of
300 feet. At 1,800 feet a man appears
as a spot on the landscape and cannot usually be seen if lie keeps still

The Way Out
Change of Food Brought Success and

An ambitious but. delicate girl, after
failing to go through school on account, of nervousness and hysteria,
found In Grape-Nuts the only thing
that seemed lo build up and furnish
her the peace of health.
"From Infancy," she. says, "I have
not been strong B.dng ambitious to
leant at any cost, I finally got to Ibe
High ScHool but soon had lo abandon
my studies on account, of nervous
prostration and hysteria.
".My food did not agree with me,
and I grew thia aud despondent. J
could not enjoy the simplest social affair for I suffered constantly from
nervousness in spito of ull sorts of
medicines.
"This wretched condition continued
until I became interested in tlie letters of those who had cases like
mine and who were being helped by
eating Grape-Nuts.
"I liad little faith, but. procured a
pkg., and after the first dish 1 experienced a peculiar satisfied feeling
that I had never gained from any ordinary food. I slept and rested better
that night aud in a few days began to
grow stronger.
"I had a new feeling of peace and
reStfulbess. In a few weeks, to my
great joy, the headaches and nervousness left me and life became bright
and hopeful. I resumed my studies
and later taught ten months with ease
���using Grape-Nuts every day. 1 am
now the mistress of a happy home
and the old weakness has never returned.

Aid, Kobeitson made one of the
moJt sensible remarks aiicnt the
post ofiice squabble, we have heard
for so i e time,��� "If Mr, Parez
would not agree to have tbe post
ollice built anv other place than on
Isaliel Street, let us agree to have
it built there, and have it built at
once." This eternal squabbling
will not get us arywhere. Kvery
person in town had a chance to
offer a tree site for the post office,
there were only three public ipirited
citizens who availed themselves of
the opportunity, Messrs. Lloyd
Dunham, Mr. McPhee, and Mr,
Parez, the latters' lot being accepted bv the Government. Because
he has been lucky enough to secure
the building of the post office in the
centre of his property, and also in
the centre of t' e city, is no reason
why we should try and have it
built elsewhere.
In another column appears a letter from Mr. W. A. W. Hames re
the cow nuisance. We have on a
number of occasions made remarks
on the nuisance. We have no objection to cows running at large
during daylieht, but at night they
and their bells are an insufferable
nuisance, and if it continues the
council will be compelled to pass a
bylaw prohibiting all animals from
running at large. A better way
would be for the Council to pass a
herd bylaw which would allow animals to graze at large during the
hours from 7 in the morning until
7 p. m., after which they must be
taken into paddocks or tied up. A
nominal fee of $1. per year should
be imposed. This scheme works
well in other places and should do
here.
financial statement will show that
most of the contributions have come
from those living outside the city.
This society differs from others in
that it is independent, its funds can
be used for any purpose of relief.
and is not merely confined to the
Immediate families of soldiers. The
committee recognize lhat all or
nearly all of the hardships we are
now undergoing are caused by the
war, and that all needy persons in
our district should be helped. It
is now up to those of us who can
to help tlie committee.
The annual report of the Patriotic service Committee appears in another column It vill be seen that
this society is doing much good in
a quiet unostentatious way which
is to be admired. The circumstances of every wife or family left by
men called to the front have been
investigated, and if help was necessary it was freely given, and the
recipients were grateful because it
was not charity. Work was provided for a number when there was
no possibility of them securing
employment through the regular
channels. The work of the committee is now greatly handicapped
through lack of funds and it would
be well for our citizens to contribute liberally to it.   A glance at the

Victotia, B. C���It has been said
that as a community, tbe settleis of
British Columbia co-operate in forest protection work to a greater
degree than in auy other part of
Canada or the States. In view of
this, the Minister of Lands has in-
instructed the district foresters to
distribute a circular letter embody,
ing the regulations concerning fire
permits, giving rules for guidance
when burning slash or brush in
land clearing operations, aud information as to what should be done
if fire does break out. The importance of care with fire is clearly
set out. together with an appeal for
the help of every citizen. The
letter gives facts snowing the necessity for adequate fire protection
to the timber industry whic'i in ordinary times contains half the capital, employs half the labor, aud
pays half the wages distributed in
British Columbia.
With the despatch of ten car
loads of potatoes Saturday from
British Columbia to Washington,
there was completed an export of
thirty-five carloads this week.
This represents about 15,000 sacks
of potatoes, and is noteworthy because it is the first time that shipments of potatoes have been made
from British Columbia to the South
Previos shipments had all been
made inwards. A similar quantity
of potatoes is expected to be exported this week.
The export is considered a
triumph for the fruit pest inspectors, who have been active in keeping out the Colorado beetle and potato blight from the province. Last
season the potato crop in different
parts of Washington and California
suffered considerably from the potato borer maggott, necessitating
the purchase of shipments from
British Columbia to supply local
needs.

REPORTS   OF COMMITTEES
Aid. Crompton, having received
a letter from the Hon. J. W. Bowser stating that any relief loans
made lo inumcrpalities would have
to be repaid bv September 1, and
were only made in case of absolute
necefsity. The letter will be acknowledged and filed.
Aid Roberts:)!! asked that filial
consideration of trades bylaw be
left ever till another session.
The electric light bylaw was
ready for its first and second readings. Aid. Johnston remarked
that the schedule of rates was not
ready and thought it unwise to go
on until it was completed. The
Mayor raid that as the council
were all agreed as to the terms of
the schedule the bylaw might be
introduced. Aid. Johnston said he
bad not agreed to the agreement
or to the schedule of prices. The
Mayor then instructed the Utilities
Committee to fix up the agreement
and shedule with the company, and
then bring it to the council for ratification.
Md. Crompton reported that he
had in'erviewed Mr. Parez, re the
Post Office site, and that he would
not consent, under any circumstances to give up any right he had to
have the post office built on Isabel
Street.
Mr Parez asked if the port office
was to be built for tbe accommodation of the public or for these'
who had real estate to sell. He
also said that if the post office was
built at all it would be built on
Isabel street, not on Union Street,
which was only a road leading to
the mines.
Aid. Robertson said the city were
taking the matter over, and he
wanted to start with a clean sheet.
He wanted to put Mr. Parez's lots
in competiton with other sites, but
Ml. Parez will not allow it to be
put up under any circumstances.
He thought Mr. Parez was not acting in the best interests of Court-
enay, but if the post office is going
to be built there let us all agree to
agree, and have it built at once.
The Clerk cubinitted the following report of the receipts and  dis-
bursments up to June 1,
Receipts
Taxes from Govt $11.52
Dog Taxes $61.00
Trades Licenses 595.oo
Government school grant $384,50
Bank of Commerce..        ..$500
DisdursmenTS
Office Expenses $166.07
.Salaries $160
Police $52
Office Furniture $85,75
Schools $764.78
leaving a balance on hand of
$yS 06. The amount out standing
exclusive of the note to Bank is
about $1300,
Aid. Johnston stated that he had
seen Mr, Brock, and he thought
they could let them have $2500
mire if necessary to tide the city
over until the taxes came in.
Aid. Johnston gave notice that
at the next meeting he would introduce a by-law to borrow money
from the bank.
Aid. Crompton introduced a dog
by-law which was given a first and
second reading. It provides for
the impounding and destruction of
homeless dogs, and that vicious
dogs must be chained up or muzzled,
I Aid. Robertson again brought up
! the post office matter, and quoted
I from a private letter from Mr
Clements, that it all depends on
1 Mr. Pare/, whether there is any
change iu the post office site.
I Mr. Clements is expected im town
shortly, and the whole thing will
be put up to him then, and settled
for all time.
Aid, Robertson brought up the
matter of fixing the bad holes in
front of the Presbyterian church,
and 011 the Cumberland road,
Aid. Leighton suggested that
the policeman and a wheel barrow
could fill the one in front of the
church in a few minutes, with
gravel from the pit opposite, This
evoked a long discussion, and finally it was decided to have the
Board of Works do the work at an
tesimated cost of $75, if the bank
reply is favorable,
Aid, Leighton said the bridge on
Isabel street would have to be
planked soon, and that the big
bridge was in bad shape, some of
the joists were rotten, and before
any extensile repairs were made an
examination should be made, and a
deputation wait on the Government
to see about having it replaced with
steel structure. In the meantime
the city will have the bridge tested
by a competent man.
Aid. McKenzie drew the attention of the Council to a number of
boxes etc. lying on the streets.
The Constable will see that they
are removed.
Aid. Cromptou wanted the council to take steps to have a harvest
excursion nm by the railroads from
here to the prairies this fall. There
are many idle men hereabouts who
should welcome the chance to help
take off the harvest.
Aid. Kirkwood said that as an
old prairie raucher he knew that
they depended upon the excursionists to assist with the harvest, and
owing to the fact that so manv men
had gone to the front it might be
difficult to secure harvest hands.
He thought it well to take the matter up with the Board of Trade.
The fire wardens have ordered a
number of fire buckets, and 3 35
foot ladders, and are on the lookout
for a fire engine and hose.
Aid. Kirkwood brought up the
matter of a phone for the constable's residence, and instanced a
small riot which occurred on Sunday morning, when the policeman
could uot   be   got.   The Utilities
committee was instructed to have
the phore put in, also to furnish a
cap, badge, and baton for the policeman
Court of Revision
On Monday, Mayor Kilpatrick,
Aids. Kirkwood, Leighton, Cromp
ton, aud Robertson sat as a Court
of Revision to hear complaints
against the assessment,
The first case called was that of
theC, P. Ry., Mr. Beasley contending that the railroad was exempt from taxation under an order-
in-coucil dated October 14. of last
year. Solicitor Dundas said that
there was nothing in the order to
show that the railway lauds iu the
city of Courteuay were exempt.
The matter was laid over for further
consideration.
The next wai an appeal from
Rev. Mr. Lavcock, which was not
entertained as 110 one appeared for
the appellant, Mr. Holmes went
the same way.
N. H, Boden was wrongly assessed for lot 1. This was changed.
The appeal against over assessment
011 lots 28, 30, 31, and piece of
acreage, also improvements on lot
31 was laid over for furt: er consideration.
The case 1 of the Presbyterian
Church, G. F. Russel, Margaret
Millard, Comox Creamery, Wm,
Duncan, Philip Campbell. W,
Hodgson, and M. Parez were also
laid over. In the afternoon Mr.
Holmes appeared and in a lengthy
argument suggested the industries
should not be overtaxed, and that
the cit) should not have been incorporated.
Mr. Campbell said his house had
only cost $500. and was assessed at
$800. A carpenter will look at it
and value it.
Mr, J. McPhee appealed against
his assessment. One lot assessed
at $1400, ou the river, he had offered for $900, but could not secure
a buyer, Other lots which he had
bought by public tender for less
than $300 each 3 years ago when
times were at the best were now assessed at $1400 to $2200 each.
The slaughter house pi��ee of acreage was assessed at $400 an acre.
This was low lying land tnd could
not be used for anything but industrial sites and farming land was
altogether too high. Another piece
1 3-4 acres at $3100 per acre,
'How does that strike you ? asked
Mr. McPhee 130 acres for which
he had foolishly paid $150 au acre,
the Government assessed at $13,000
5 acres of flats by the river couldn't
be used for anything but farm laud
was assessed at $400 an acre, should
b.- assessed at $50. On the whole
of this property the Government
assessment had been $64,000, now
it was $81,000, Tbis was also laid
over for future consideration by th*
Court.
The Cemox Logging & Railway
Co,, appealed against their assess
ment of 15,000, two years ago the
Government had assessed them at
$4,650, As they did uot carry passengers or freight, the Co. thought
this was excessive. Thev had
spent a lot of money in the district
and were entitled to some consideration.
A Urquhart was assessed for
more land than he had, and also
thought that $400 an acre was
pretty steep, especially as his land
on the other side of the road was
only assessed at 100 an acre. This
was also laid over for future consideration.

The school trustees proved themselves too sr>art for Messrs. Hodgson and Leighton ou Tuesday after-
l.oon. As soon as the in instigation
was over Mrs. McQuillan asked
their stenographer for her notes,
and kept them, absolutely refusing
to give them up even when demanded upon the advice of a lawyer.
This is apparently carrying things
ith a high haud.

so necessary l'or the empire. And
why: First and foremost, for patriotic
.reasons. The empire lias told us that
she needs all the food that we ean
produce. Home people question lhe
advisability or Ihe necessity of this
line of appeal. The man that ean
see no patriotism in production when
istenee is himseli most iu need
ol patriotic stimulation. What Canada
needs most ot all today is patriotic
enthusiasm. Tlie man who feels, when
be is holding lhe plow und sowing liis
seed and reaping his wheat, that he is
doing it not merely for himself but
also for his brother Canadian who is
risking life in the trenches or in the
bayonet charge will do it with lighter
heart God help Canada il' this year
all the grain is grown and all the
stock is produced ai.d fed merely for
personal tain or tlie dull force of
necessity. Are the farmers of different
blood from other people'.' Sentiment,
enthusiasm, loyalty, patriotism���do
these mean nothing to them? 1 am
prepared to bank the future of Canada on lhe true loyalty and patriotism ot the farmers: if they did not
have lt our future would not be worth
much. And lhat patriotism can be
stimulated.
Secondly, we base our appeal on
gratitude. When over seven million
people sacrifice their farms, tlieir factories and their people, for freedom,
for liberty, for humanity, for us, there
should he no hesitation In our res-
sponse, All history, sacred or profane,
shows no parallel. We are enjoying
comfort and safety because brave lit
tie Belgium stood up as a people to
withstand the oncoming rush ot Prussian militarism that aimed to ol'usil
Ihe liberty and safety of France and
the British empire. Consider what
might have happened if Belgium also
had eonsid.'n d as "a scrap of paper"
the treaty that Britain guaranteed
After relying on the strength of that
treaty and prospering because of it
for nearly eighty years, it is sudden-
Iv lorn to fragments. What does it
mean to us? A people as numerous
as Canadians will stand by It and sacrifice themselves for it. Have we no
gratitude that we are not reduced to
a German colony or forced to pay an
organizations realize that this is a
national question calling for hearty
co-operation we shall not meet fully
the empire's call.
Finally, there is the duty of the individual to himself. Increased production means more for everyone who
meets this call, more for himself and
his family. And this applies to the
city and town man���the man with the
backyard and the vacant lot. Cupro-
duclng land in town and city will this
year show a lack of patriotism. Any
town or city in Canada that this year
bus unproductive land with idle workers will be guilty of a national crime.
Three propositions have been put
up to tlie farmers of Canada in th'i
government campaign:
1. Grow staple "ops. such as can
be stored and transported. There will
be a special demand tor wheat, oats,
peas, beans and (lax
2. Increase production per acre
rather than increase acreage- Better
cultivation and tlie best seed will
double or treble the yield under favorable weather conditions.
3. Particular attention should be
given lo live stock. The war put up
the price of cereals more than the
price of meats���but there is coming
a world shortage of meats, lt was in
sight before the war. Out of the
great cattle countries in only one
have the cattle kept pace with tlie
people.
The meat consumption by Canadians is double that of the French and
fifty per cent, more than that of the
British. With high prices coming it
will be well for the people of tills
country to cut down somewhat their
meat allowance and to more fruit and
vegetables. It may be that this war
will result ln Canadians learning
how to grow vegetables and how- to
cook and eat them. The health of the
people will be thereby improved.
One of tlie noteworthy characteristics of this campaign of Patriotism and
Production is that, while the needs of
the empire are being served, the
health and wealth of our people will
also he conserved and Increased.���-

I Spend a Dollar a Month on Canadian!
Goods and  Help Pay Canada's       |
Debts
Wha, can be doub to improve Can-
| uihi's financial position and make the
balance of   trade mere favorable to
liter?
Canada Is a borrowing country. Her
Imports have exceeded hor exports by
a very huge amount l'or many years,
and this adverse irade balance Is an
accumulating debt which must sooner
o' later lie paid- The "Made iu Canada" movement has up to the present resulted in litlle but talk, because
none of us act In line with our
preaching. Instead ot it being anybody's business, it uughi to lie everybody's business, and what is everybody's business must he each body's
business or ll becomes nobody's business.
About Ilve million dollars of footwear, cloth, rubber and leather, Is Imported by Canada every year. There
is coinpetltlon'nmong Canadian manufacturers, which Insures fair treatment to the consumer, and there is no
reason why every man, woman and
child iu Canada should not bu able
to get. Canada-made shoes. This ls one
example of man;.
Canada last year Imported eleven
million dollars' worth of green vegetables and ���fruit��� much of (his quite
"imecessary -and it Is one of the
signs of tlie extravagance, selllsh indulgence and ostentatious display of
which tlie abnormal prosperity Cauada enjoyed for a period was tlie
cause.
We have a population of eight millions iu Canada. One dollar per
onlh per capita spent on Canadian
products that ia now spe it on goods
made abroad would mean an addition
of, roughly, one hundred . 'ilion dollars to Canadian trade, of -which
porbably twenty-five million dollars
would be speut in wages. Such an addition to tho wages now paid in Canada would mean something In the reduction of unemployment and in the
maintenance of a fair standard of pay
for tlie working classes. It is of far
'i.ore importance to Ihe wage-earners
Iheinselves than i. is to our manufacturers that the "Made lu Canada"
i movement should take practical and
permanent form.
War in Kurope may lead to Can-
| adinns learning more about their own
I country and ils holiday resorts. Not a
single dollar that can possibly be kept
in Canada should be allowed to escape, and the thought I would like to
impress is that it should be the business of each and every Canadian to
act in line*with the "Made in Canada"
movement and, ln so far as our Influence may extend, to see that, others
act in like manner.
It the leaders of Ihe trades and
labor unions would turn their atten
lion to (he ".Made in Canada" movement and encourage their members to
give it strong support, thj desire lo
purchase home-made goods would
take firmer hold of the people of the
country and hundreds of thousands
of dollars would be kept In Canada
and paid in wages to Canadian workmen which now go to help the mechanics and laborers of foreign countries-
Tlie worltlngmen of Canada owe it
to themselves to extend this movement by a campaign of education and
publicity that will make itself felt in
every home in the land.
The Canadian manufacturer, on his
part, should see that the goods he
turns out. are tlie hest he can possibly make. This is his patriotic-duty
as well as good business.���.1. W.

the  Neutrality  of the  Ruined
Before the Commencement
of the War, as Has Been Alleged by the Germans
The Belgian government has Issued
a protest against the German allegation that documents round in tlie
archives at Brussels showed that Belgium had forfeited her neutrality before lhe outbreak of the war. After recounting the conversations which
took between the British and Belgian
military officers lu 11)06 and Jul:!,
which, as previously stated by Sir Kdward Grey, the British fori i.-. minister, liad "reference only in the situa-
lion that would be created If Belgian
neutrality had already been violated,"
the  Belgian  protest says:
"The Belgian government declares
on ils honor that    not   only was no j
convention ever made,    ,,ut also that
neither of tbe two governments everl
made  any  advances or    propostlons
concerning the conclusion of any such
convention.    Moreover,    (lie minister

clear, provided that no part of theni
is either garbled or suppressed. In

and again our governmeni, faithfully
reflecting Belgian uprightness, considers that it is its duty to inflict
once more on tlie spoiler of Belgium
the brand of infamy, his only legiti

The German "Goose" Step
iairt To Be a Fine Exercis.-, and Will
Strengthen the Muscles of the
Legs
If there is one tiling In particular
that distinguishes the German army
from all others, i'. is llle goose step
--llie ceremonious "high kicking"
ftep so impressively employed by lhe
German regiments In marching past
king or kaiser or other potentate.
The goose step is accomplished by
keeping the knee stiff and by lifting
thc leg in a kind of kick as high as
possible. To see great lines of infantry employing the goose step, to see
them, with erect body and drawn-in
stomach and toe pointed outward at
Ihe same angle, lift each leg high and
stiff, (hen bring it thunderously down
upon the ground���well, that is a striking spectacle.
Tne goose-step, furthermore, is a
fine exercise. Military critics declare
that a half hour of it will strengthen
the muscles of leg and abdomen as
much as a full day's marching.
On this account, since the war's
outbreak has brought tiie goose step
into prominence, a great many gym-
maiiiums have inaugurated goose-step
olasscs under the supervision of ex-
officers of the army.
It is claimed that with ten or
twelve minutes of goose stepping a day
a fat. man or woman will reduce the

Young    French    Savant    Does Great
Service   While   Shells  Are
Bursting
What is described as .. "highly
scientific opuscule on the parasite Infusoria of cephalopoda" has been
written in llie trenches hy a young
savant named Colin and read at the
Academy of Sciences. Colin was investigating tills abstruse subject
when the war broke out Ile was in
the thick of battle near Notre Dame
de l.orette when, according to a letter he has written to a fellow-investigator, he had a feeling lhat he
probably would be killed. Colin therefore look advantage of a few hours'
respite when his company was relieved to complete tlie final chapter
and hand it to a comrade for transmission to tlie Academy of Science.
This unparalleled scientific achievement was accomplished while shells
were bursting amidst the second line
of trendies.
It must not be forgotten that submarines are vulnerable types of warship, extra hazardous to navigate,
easily sunk in collision, and by no
means attractive to the enlisted man,
who prefers a stauncher home afloat
and the fresh air of the blue tumbling
water to a cluttered up, contracted
deep sea machine shop packed 'with
explosives, that fills its lungs and
those of its crew by artificial meani.

Cheers Supplant Jeers
Suffragette Leader Gets Loud Praise
as a  Popular War Orator
'Patriotic fervor draws thunderous cheers in place of old-time jeers,"
is the way a London newspaper heads
an article on Mrs. I'ankhurst as a
popular war orator. The paper itself
is violently null-suffragette, but honors the war truce which tlie suffragettes announced at the beginning or
the war.
lt was only a year ago when .-.
."������peech by Mrs. Pankhurst was a signal for a riot, if allowed to proceed
at all. Now she is described by a reporter In these words: "A graceful,
dignified figure the suffrage leader
makes as sbe faces the audience,
Over a becoming black dress she
wears a black lace shawl: suspended
from a thin gold chain is a lorgnette
which she does not use. Tlie i'nion
Jack centred across a curtain of
green forms the stage background."
Her women followers still send up
floral offerings to the stage, says the
reporter. In speaking, .Mrs. Pank-
hurst carefully avoids passion and Invective, but. she presents her points
clearly and tellingly and witli conviction- At tlie finish of her speech,
;onng suffragettes sell postcard
souvenirs for a patriotic fund.
Where the Fit Survived
The i^iand. of Lewis, where practically Ihe entire male population has
volunieerei for active service, holds
a proud record for military prowess,
and furnishes the finest recruits for
the Highland regiments. A practice,
approved by Plato, formerly prevailed here of putting lo death by exposure all weakly or deformed children,
and lt is said hy the most credible
historians (hal this custom continued
until "modern times." As a result, the
inhabitants arc far superior In physique to other Highlanders, and con-i
sumption was quite unknown until j

The Parasite
For Empire Federation
Sir    George    Perlev   Says  Dominions
and Motherland Must Get Closer
Together
In a recent speech at the lloyal
Colonial Institute, London, Sir George
Perley said:
"Tlie empire is a live thing. We
feel it to be so more than the ordinary English citizen because we have
been talking of it for years."
Sir George defines his idea of Canada's relation to the empire in the
present crisis, pointing out thai the
Dominion joined the war as a firm believer in the democratic ystem which
is at stake. "But while Canada was
happy to act as it had done last
August no one would say that the
present relationship of the different
parts of the empire could possibly he
permanent. While believing Britain
would remain one of the greatest civilizing forces Hie weld had ever seen,
one axiom of nature was lhal nothing
stood still. We have come to a place
where it seems to nie we must get
closer together- Otherwise, according
to the laws of nature, we must look
forward to a time when we shall
gradually  drift  apart."      , ,
In the country whicn he represented It would be, impossible lo stand on
a platform and say thai Canada should
do always what she is doing now
without knowing and previously discussing the questions at issue; but he

I "a parasite and an economic wast:,'

goes to the saloon to get wine or beer
or whisky. The dealer makes a protlt
on the goods sold. But there is a
break in our business principles. The
buyer makes no gain. He parts with
his share of the barter, and gets nothing valuable in return. Ar every-
other counter tberj was gain on botn
sides; here the gain is on one aide
only. Tlie transaction limps; it is
false to business principles. It represents economic waste- I; must
cease.
"lt remains eternally true that
business to be legitimate must produce gain to both parties dealing.
"The economic waste becomes a
multiplied factor wheu the argument
is extended to liquor's effect ou the
purchaser who consumes it.
"The liquor traffic is a parasite.
Any business bloctl that it has is
sucked from tlie vigorous body of
healthful business. It contributes nothing, but draws heavily. If traffic
iu lumber, groceries, dry goods and
other legitimate business gave no
more value than liquor gives, and jet
received as these lines of business do.
and as liquor does, all business would
collapse. The quid pro quo would be
icktng. If a town or city prospers
where traffic in liquor is allowed, its
prosperity is less than it should be by
just so much as liquor takes. It give's
nothing, nnd what it takes Is so much
substracted from the general gain. It
is a parasite, a leach. Prosperity may
continue, but it carries a needless bur-
d--n. A ten-mule team may haul a
heavy load up a hill, even ihoug.i
there may be one span on die rear end
pulling back. Unhitch the pull-back
team and the load will mov forward
easily. Unhitch the liquor drag and
you accelerate the movement of legitimate business."  ���

RELIEF���There was very little
response in the shape of money
and there seemed to be a general
feelin"' against pressing too hard
the appeal for subscriptions,
having regard to the prevailing
stringent conditions. It was
therefore necessary to make the
money go as far as possible. It
was clearly impossible with the
amount of money at disposal to
make continuous allowances, either to dependants on those who
had gone to the front or to local
cases of destitution. The regular
support of the former had to be
left to the Canadian Patriotic
Fund ofj the later and to Government Relief. The relief
given has therefore been of three
kinds.
(c) Help to those dependent
on men servintr at the front, in
cases where from one cause or an
other the receipt of the separation allowance of the amount from
tlie Canadian Fund has beer, delayed. This has taken the form
of orders on the stores as well as
help in other directions.
(b) Relief to cases of local
distress pending their being able
to obtain government relief. This
also has been given in the form
of orders on stores.
(a) A payment of $199.25 for
work done at 25c per hour on
the Agricultural Hall. It is be-
believed that this gave considerable amount of relief (on a productive basis) at a time when it
was urgently needed. It was to
be hoped that the Canadian Patriotic Fund would have found
some direct support from the
neighbourhood. It is understood
however, that so far as the Victoria Branch is concerned, no
support has been given from
Courtenay.   The result   is that
result of  which seven  men and
five women obtained certificates,

ol Militia.    This was subsequently done
but owing to the shortage of   equipment
ami the general strain on the Militia department, the latter could take no  steps'
nor register any rifle associations.    This
necessarily brought matters to an end,

taken advantage of by many who otherwise get none, lind to be abandoned.

to make it go as (ar   as   possible.    Personal help has also been given by   those

The committee bad nothing to do with
recruiting for the district but hoped to
give some encouragement in this directors (amongst those who would not have
taken uny interest In it) by organizing
local training. Drills were started but
it was clear'y impossible to continue
theni through the winter, without an
adequate ball, whicli was not available,
lt occurred to the Secretary that if what
was done locally formed part of a larger
scheme in which the element of competition was introduced, there would be
much more chance of interest being sustained. A suggestion was therefore put
into shape, .inilcr which throughout Vancouver Islanl Rifle Associations should
be lornled with miniature ranges of
identical type equipped with the same
kind of rilles. aud that the associations
should be superintended by a strong
central council at Victoria, and that
competitions between various associations
should be held weekly and published ill
tlie press the same way as the results o(
baseball or any olher kind of sport. In
connection with this it was suggested
that the Militia department should assist
the institution of musketry instruction
on the various range which exists on
the Island, such as that on the Spit at
Comox, provide rifle instruction, and
that competlton on these ranges should
be held al certain intervals. Under tbe
Militia Act the members of their associations could have been available in times
o( emergency as part of tbe official forces of the country, and at all times the
spirit produced would have encouraged
recruiting. This suggestion was submitted to the premier of the Province, at
who's request a memorandum was prepared in order that he might take the
matter up with the  Dominion  Minister
