arduous clasees of work a woman attempts. It

The little Electric Motor can be instantly attached
to any kind of sewing machine, old or new, no tools
or screws required.   The cost of operating motor
is less than one cent per hour

I louse of Commons,
i Utawa, Jan. ,\\, 1916
Win. Idiens, Esq.
Dear Idiens:��� Yours of 22nd
inst., received with "The Review"
newspaper clipping expressing your
views on watered stock companies.
I heartily agree with the sentiments
expressed and I have long fought
against and objected to companies
US they were allowed lo organize,
especially in British Columbia, with
the vast amounts of watered sleek,
thereby robbing the small individual subscriber. Personally I would
not invest a dollar in any company
with any watered stock whatever,
and if this were carried out it
would be an incentive and a pro
tection to the working man and
otherwise for the I idlest protection
for his money invested, and a boon
to the province generally. With
the vast amount of taw material.

No matter how vou talk to him
against lhe intemperate use of cither
he continues taking them till he

experience lias convinced him that
intemperance brings more pain than

left to experience and education-
People cannot be made good by

Man is neither pood or bad but

The Prohibitionists say 75 per

shows an utter lack of knowledge

bear of a drunken footpad or highwayman.    Then again,   why   is it

it is because there is more beer

News-Advertiser a short time ago,
where a minister was speaking in

expressed his sorrow at seeing so
much mote drunkenness since prohibition cattle in force.
This reminds me of the ancient
Hebrew legend which tells us that
nil sin nnd death and nil sorrow
was brought aboul by f?ve eating
of the prohibitive tree- It appears
thai as soon as they were told that
they could not eat of a certain tree
that fruit became Iheir only desire.
This characteristic seems prevalent
in human nature today. By experience il. would seem that any
attempt lo prohibit tile use or the
sight of anything only stimulates
the desire to get it

Church  Club     '
On Friday evening last the
Church Club had a very successful
patriotic evening. Mr. Win. Duncan read a very informing magazine article on "The Outcome of
the War " The chief feature of
the programme, however, was _
carefully prepared paper on Lord
Kitchener by Mr. Burnett The
sixty-six years of his career were
reviewed and when it came to the
point that he is still a bachelor the
knitters present were anxious to
know the si/.e of his boots.
I.ord Kitchener was born in Ire-
laud yet is no Irishman. He entered Woolwich Royal Military
Academy at eighteen. At twenty
he was aiding the French against
the Germans in the Franco-Prussian war. He received his commission and did survey work in
Cypress and Palestine.
At thirty-three he was attached
as Captain to the British Army in
Egypt. Me was one cf the staff of
the expeditionary force that ascended the Nile in the fruitless attempt
to save General Gordon. He was
promoted to Colonel and then to
Sirdar of Egypt. Three years later he begun his advance into the
Soudan which ended so splendidly
in his great victory at Oindiirmau,
September J, 1898, He received
the thanks of parliament, a  gift of.
30,000 and was cicati(1 Baron   Kit
cbeuer of Khartum.
When the Boer   war was  in pro
gress it was   only alter   I.ord Rob
erts and   Kitchener were   sent out
that   order   was   brought out   of
chaos.    Only when every Boer had
either surrendered or left the conn-.
try  did Kitchener   give   up.    i'or,
this he received the thanks  of par- j
liaiuent   and  a grant   of   51,000'
Taking no rest, we next   hear of
Kitchener's   appointment   to  the1
position of  Commai der-in-chlef of
the British  forces in   India.    This
post he held for seven   years,    He
left India in 1900 aud was promoted to the rank   of Field   Marshall
He   was   offered   the   position  of
Commander-in-Chief    and     High
Commissioner of  the   Mediterran
jean.    This he refused   and made a,
tour of inspection   of the   forces of j
the Empire,
His next appointment   was British    Agent of    Egypt and    beheld!
that position when llic present war:
1 broke out and he was made Secretary of War, His record in eighteen months has qeeti unparalleled,
lie hasiaisid and equipped an
armv of 3,000.000 men. It took
tin- Germans forty years. Lord
Rosebuiy has well said, "He is our
greatest military asset." It is the
Iuniversal judgement of all British
people, whatever happens, Kitchener must not resign.
It is  confidently   expected   that
whether sooner  or later   when tlie
present   convulsion   has   subsided,
the greatest    honours   tvill   go   to
I Lord Kitchener of Khartum,

The Time To Act |
The old saying has it ' thai there
is 110 time like the present," That
this applies with telling force to the
selection ol good dairy vows, will
be admitted by every thoughtful I
dairyman. Selection may be made
on the evidence of certain well
known external indications of g8o*d
milking qualities with special attention paid to the udder, loin, s' in,
barrel, etc
But no matter how skilled the I
expert judge of dial y 'quality' in
a cow may be, lie is not infallible '
as to the amount of hard cash that
any one cow in the herd will earn
in a year. He may be, the ordinary
dairy farmer, too may be considerably mistaken in his judgment.
One system will give him accurate
results, that of selection of dairy
records. It is easy lo weigh the
sample, it is easy to add up a few
fi'juics for each cow, it is easy to
compare such totals, and it is eminently satisfactory to know for certain which cows best to keep and
breed from.
Now is the the time lo act, prepare
to keep records all season; write the
dairy division, Ottawa. I'or free
milk record forms, either 3 tit l'es
per month, or daily. You wi"
never regret it.
