The Love of a Dcg
A day or two passed, and tlie
Squire had not seen Mrs. Bartlett.
He had been engrossed by other matters. The neighborhood was agog
with a new sensation, One day, when
Sir Gilbert South had gone up to
London by an early morning train,
Lady South and Margaret had driven to lln- slation aboul an hour
later, and had also departed for London, taking with them a couple of
tt.mks.    They had not returned.
Mrs. Ellison, Mrs. Dc Montmorency, and their kind were in high excitement ovcr so choice a bit of scant

From Our Own Correspondent
'I'he phenomenal gains that the
Canadian Northern Railway reports
fur its year as a transcontinental line
makes thc statement one of the mosl
important that has ever been issued
by any railway in Canada, ll is even
doubtful whether the tremendous increases in business handled have evei
been duplicated by any system in the
world. There are many features lo
the report that make it of special import lo every Canadian, owing lo thc
I interest the country has in lhe building up of this Important transcontinental line and the attractive terri
lory lhal has becn developed through
the completion of lhc system. 'llie
feature of the report lhat is likely lo
In especially gratifying is that which
shows the prominent pari lhc Canadian Northern, with ils transcontinental system, has been able to play
in handling such a large proportion
of the grain requirements of the
i Mother Country.
Right along it has been the contention of Sir William Mackenzie
and bis associates that it was only
'a matter of a very short period before Canada and the Empire would
enjoy the benefits of the big syslem
that had been built tip across thc Dominion, and thc showing made iu lln.
report indicates lhat these hopes
have been realized much earlier than
It would have been thought possible
when the transcontinental system was
set in operation a little over a year
Important Gains of Year
A few of the outstanding features
of the report arc as follows: An increase in freight traffic during (he
year of $8,352,412, equivalent to as
much as 45.87 per ccnl.; increase in
pasesnger traffic, $717,.46, of a gain
of 13.25 per cent,; an increase in tolal
operating revenue of $9,564,168, or
.)<\91 per cent, ovcr the previous year.
That the. company's lines handled over 131,000.000 bushels of grain is
proof positive that the railway has
been located in the best grain growing areas of the West.
The exact grain traffic handled
amounted to 131,978,809 bushels as
compared with 58,573,520 bushels in
1915, or an increase of 73,403,289.
equivalent lo an increase of as much
as 125.31 per cent.
That the company has been able to
make such striking gains in the
amount of traffic handled ovcr its
lines will undoubtedly be itiore readily appreciated when it is remember.d
that it was only operated as a transcontinental syslem dining the last
seven of thc twelve months of thc fiscal year, and when it is recalled that

last winter the weather conditions In
the Western provinces, and mora
particularly in British Columbia,
were lhe mosl severe that h*t been
experienced in a great many years,
iu fact, in some instances, were the
mosl difficult that Canadian railway*
bad ever to niecl in lhat part of tha
country, It should also be pointed
oul that thc company had the disadvantage, owing lo the conditions arls-
I iug from the war, ef being without its
I own terminals in such important cento's as Vancouver in lhc West, aud
Montreal in lhe East.
Company's Earning Power
The developnieni that is sure to b*
most  favorably   received    by  everybody who is following the growth of
the larger    Canadian    railways    wilt
'come from the fact that thc Canadian
North an   Railway   has  come   withit
hailing distance of earning its    total
fi\ol    charges,    the    deficit   for tho
year being brought down to less than
a quarter of a million  dollars, a  redaction from the previous year of al*
| most $1,400,1100.
| Some of lhc interesting feature! of
I lhc Board of Directors' report as In-
j dicating the position of'the line and
I the progress it has made include ths
An agreement of great importance
in lhe development Of lhe system'*
freight and passenger traffic was
made with the Cttnard Steamship Co.
lln future the Cunard Line and tha
Canadian Northern Railway will be,
in fact, a single transportation unis
between Europe and Canada.
'lhe possession of such favorabl*
grades as those on the system's lines
lias given lhc Canadian Northern an
a.ready important advantage in the
economy of operation, particularly in
carrying thc two commodities offering iu largest volume, viz.; lumbe.
and grain.
The main line of the Canadian
Northern Railway from Quebec to
Vancouver is superior to any tins
crossing the continent of America in
points of grade and curvatures fay
oring traffic.
The lines of llio company's system
are now serving 75 per cent, of tha
aggregate population of the cities
and towns of all Canada, having
5,000 inhabitants and over.
The present siluation emphasize*
the fact that the Railway is r.ot aa
dependent upon grain crop move-
nunt as in the past, and in becoming
transcontinental has acquired a highly diversified traffic. The develop-
luents of tbe year confirm the Direo
tors in the belief lhat they strongly
lold, that the ultimate.prosperity of
the Canadian Northern Railway

Impure Blood Means a Breakdown
In Your Health
Impure blood is an invitation lo
flckncss. The blood is at work day
and night to maintain the hcallh, and
any lack of strength or purity in the
blood is a weakni SS in lhe defense
against disease. Anaemia is the doctor's name for lack of blood. There
may be an actual loss in lhc quantity
��f the blood, or one or more of ils
constituents may be lacking. Its sur
tst symptom is pallor. Anaemia is
particularly common in young girls.
It is not, however, confined .o thcni
alone, for it is this same lack of blooi'.
that prevents full recovery afler la
grippe, fevers, malaria and operations.
It is also prescu^ in old age and in
persons who have been under unusual
mental or physical strain. If you arc
differing from this trouble take Dr.
Williams' Pink Tills for Pale People.
They make pure new blood with
every dose and this new blood nvans
Jifalth and strength.' Thousands have
jroved the truth of ttiesn statements,
among them Mrs. John Hyatt, Metis-
fcow, Alta., who says:���"About a year
ago I was in a badly run down condition, my blood was watery, I was
very nervous, slept badly at night;
suffered from frequent headaches and
found my housework an almost intolerable burden, my appetite was poor,
and I did not seem to assimilate the
.food 1 took, altogether my condition
teemed serious. As there, was no
doctor in our neighborhood 1 decided
to give Dr. Williams' Pink Pills a
trial, and I havc much cause to be
thankful that I did so, as in .a few
���weeks 1 could feel a great change for
the better. 1 continued the use of the
pills for some time longer and found
a complete cure. 1 feci belter than
I have for years and can therefore
checi fully recommend Dr. Williams'
Pink Pills to all who arc weak and
run down."
You can get these pills from any
dealer in medicine or by mail at 50
cents a box or six boxes for $_._0

The plain matter of fact is lhat the

There is no real reason that we can

France, Germany, Norway, Sweden,
Denmark, and is receiving the support of the American Federation of
Labor in Ihis country. There can be
little doubt but that we waste much
sunlight. In the good old sunimci
time the country's workers would receive the maximum amount of sunshine they would have inorc"time for
recreation, less work in the heat of
the afternoon, under this plan. The
manufacturer would have less lighting bills, his workers would be healthier, more efficient, more industrious,
and give better service.���Buffalo

chief damage was in Manitoba and
Southern Saskatchewan.
Mr. Burrell has been giving special

How to loosen a tender corn
or callus so it lifts out
without pain
Let folks step on your feet hereafter; wear shoes a size smaller if
you like, for corns will never again
scud electric sparks of pain through
you, according to this Cincinnati authority,
Hc says that a few drops of a drug
called freezone, applied directly upon
a tender, aching corn, instantly relieves soreness, and soon the entire,
corn, root anel all, lifts right out.
This drug dries at once and simply
shrivels up the corn or callus without
even irritating the surrounding tissue.
A small bottle of freezone obtained
at any drug store will cost very little
but will positively remove every hard
or soft corn or callus from one's feet.'
If your druggist hasn't stocked Ill's
new drug yet,"lell him to get a small
bottle of freezone for you from his
wholesale drug house.

Will Starve Foe Till Harvest
German Vice-Chancellor Admits the
Prospects are Disconcerting
Dr. Karl Helfferich, thc German
Imperial Vicc-Chanccllor, speaking at
plenary council, is quoted by Renter's
Amsterdam correspondent as saj ing:
"Britain's war of starvation has
from the lirst brought clearly before
the eyes of the German people the
fact that Germany stands or falls
with its agriculture. Owing to the
activity of the submarines and the
failure of the harvests, Britain, too,
is thrown back upon her agriculture,
and while I believe the British fanner will do his utmost to meet the situation, I prophesy his failure."
Regarding the submarine campaign
lhc despatch adds, Dr. Helfferich declared:
"Wc considered the. matter carefully and havc dared. Wc arc certain of success, and will not allow-
that success lo bc wrested from us by
anything or anybody."
After appealing for fresh efforts
by lhc agriculturalists, he added:
"Until the next harvcsl comes there
is still a long and not an easy road
lo travel. liven the best economic
plan for the next year and the most
stubborn work and sacrifice on the
part of the farmer for the coining
harvest do not relieve us of the iron

Courtenav i.s gradually recovering
from the disastrous lire wliicli devastated the business suction last
July. Tlie noil li side of Union

were before the lite, Chas. Brown
built a new store for P, McBride,
tbe baker. Chas, Simnis lias purchased the 1 t upon which his
jewellery store was situated, aud
built a haudsotu. -tore thereon,
which he now occupies; Mr. Perez
built a new store  where Shepherd
& Hornby and Cooke & Matthew-
sou were located, and the whole of
it is now occupied by Shepherd &
Co., whose business has so increased that it requries two automobiles
to deliver their goods. Two new
store; are being erected on the site
of the Calhoun Block, one for
Harry I<oggie aud the other for W
G, Robertson. The site of the
McKean block has been purchased
by Mr. Urquhart, who also intends
building. The Royal Bank als.
rebuilt their building at tlie corner
of Isabel street, practically a fnc.
siinilie of their former structure.
On the south side of the street S,

as yet, und at lhat only a smaller

handsome block, which is occupied
by Sutliff's Gent's Furnishing store

Opera House on a new site on Isabel street, which will be second to

Editor Colli'tenay Review
Dear Sir;���Will you kindly allow me cpuce in your paper to
make nppnrenfly necessary expla
nations concerning the Red Cross
I here si ems to be some dissatis
faction because the Red Cross
Committee decided to buy tabs to
tab all sewing and knitting which
we do here, If the articles in
question leave here without tabs
they are attached before leaving
Victoria (which "eads ''Canadian
Red Cross Society, Victoria, 1".
(J.) We purchase these tabs at a
cost of $_.50 a thousand, or three
for one cent, and then we have
the satisfaction of knowing that
we are credited with the work,
wherever it may be sent. In the
latt shipment we sent thirty comfort bags which we tilled with the
required articles at a coBt of $2.50
each or $75 in all. 1 might say
that the (75 was taken from the
funde of the St. Valentine's whist
drive and dance. If we had not
rt inched tabs to these they would
be credited as coming from Victoria. The cost of these tabs is
very small, and as Courtenny raises all the money to purchase material, it seems ns if we are only
giving credit where credit is due
when wo attach the tabs which
read "Canadian Red Cross Society
Courteuay, B.C.''
I have had  several   complaints
from persons   having   to   supply
their own   buttons.    I   am   very

last summer reported twenty-two
cases of typhoid among lhc British

in former days with lhc same number

the throat and i|tiitc mother thing to
t'o it. In all countries where food and
olhcr supplies are cornered the men
who do the cornering arc big fellows,
and for sonic reason the big fellows
seem to have a marvelous pull vyith

proof that the British have at last

make war. The insignificant force
with wliicli Townsend was scut on his
falal expedition, with no way prepared of supporting him, was an evidence
that in 1915 lirilam was slill governed by the same belief that war is
easy that Colonel Churchill expressed

One of the Reasons Why Dodd's

Ellscott, Alia., (Special) ���The
growth of popularity of Dodd's Kidney I'ills in lhis section of thc Great
West has been phenomenal. They
cure kidney disease. That much has
been proved again and again. Clue
oi the latest proofs comes from M.C.
Lindos, well known and highly respected here.
"Thanking Dodd's Kidney Pills
seems a small way of expressing my
gratitude," M. C. Lindos stales. "1

and was unable lo find anything lhal
would do me any good. I tried several medicines that were advertised
to cure my trouble, but they did not.
"Dodd's Kidney Pills were recommended to mc* by a friend rind 1 sent
for a box and gave tlicin a trial. The
insult is lhat 1 am feeling fine now.
1 shall always keep a box of Dodd's

Dodd's Kidney Pills cured M, C.

from the kidneys. Lumbago, rheumatism, dropsy, heart disease, diabetes and Bright's Disease arc other

Vast Unoccupied Areas of Valuable Farming Land Will  Ue
Uiili/.cd in Connection with Imperial Scheme for Faying Off
The Empire's War Debt
'lln i|ticslion of land settlement in
Canada, in many respects, is thc
most vital issue that will confront
the government of this country at the
close of the war. The vaguely out-
lined suggestion that has come from
England of using sonic 200 million
acres of Canadian agricultural lands
for lhe purpose of paying off the Empire's war debt, serves only as a te-
minder to the people of Canada that
they must meet very soon the serious problem of colonizing and developing the vast unoccupied areas
of their Dominion. Middle Western
Canada probably offers, from a
purely physical viewpoint, r. field for
settlement having lines of less resistance than any other part of lhc
counlry. In the southern half of that
expansive rectangular area of prairie
reaching from the eastern limits of
Manitoba to the foo'thills of Alberta
there is little to obstruct the path of
the pioneer farmer. Free from forest or swamp, the land remains bul
to bc cultivated. The hinterland, or
Ihc northerly half of tlTc Middle West
with its network of lakes, rivers, for-
tsls, and mineral-bearing rock, varied
villi - great stretches of fertile land
and valley, presents a different picture. One part of Alberta's Peace
River Valley already has been opened and partly settled. Willi thai exception, agricultural development and
thc lines of railways with their cilies
and towns arc a part only of the prairie plains of the southern half of the
Middle Western Provinces. It is
within the bounds of this latter area
that Canada has spent much money
and pledged her crctlit in establishing
��.n extensive plant represented by
railway lines anel municipalities. That
equipment has never been operated
to full capacity. There is over one
mile of railway to every sixty-nine
producers in Western Canada today.
The West's greatest need, therefore,
Is people, anil people who will go on
the land and produce something
llirougli which the country as a whole
may be supported.
That means, then, the settlement
first of the southern or equipped half
of the Middle Weft. The scheme for
acquiring and developing 200 million
acres accordingly musl begin with a
consideration, of that section of the
country already prepared for settlement. First, it will bc found that
the old magnet of free homesteads
with lhc attached privilege of preemption has lost its drawing-power.
The difficulty of acquiring any kind
of desirable land will soon bc realized. In oilier words, the vast proportion of cultivable land In lhat part
df the West where selllemenl is most
needed and mosl likely lo occur has
been alienated from the Dominion.
Al the cud of lhe past year the area
granted in homesteads and pre-emptions by the Dominion government
amounted to 62,7757,510 acres.   Add
to that ligurr the amount of laud Inid
by the railways, Hudson's Hay Company, ninl that represented In school.1
land sales and special grants, and another forty-four million acres must he
excluded from tlje class of free lands.
.'.Ilogi'ther, there have been some lilt*
million acres of western lands taken
fioni the country, Of this area noM.
more than thirty-two million acre;,
has been farmed. The largest urea
actually brought under crop in the
three Prairie Provinces has not exceeded twenty million acres. 'Ibis
.imply means'thai before any plan of
settlement can be evolved for Western  Canada the. Federal    authorities
must first face private Of corporate
interests, which now hold in idleness
millions of acres of the best fanning
laud in the Dominion. Can some satisfactory co-operative plan be -shaped I
between thc owners of western farm
lands and the government, or shall
lhc Department of Interior consider
the question of expropriation? This
problem must be faced squarely; ant!
it would seem to bc one demanding
either co-operation or expropriation.

Cotton Shortage in Germany
Those 200   Pajamas    Wouid    Have
Been Very Useful
The fact that a member of the
German embassy slaff was carrying
home two hundred suits of pajamas
invites attention to a serious aspect
of the blockade from Germany's
viewpoint. Before the war Germany
was importing annually 21-2 million
bales of raw cotton from the Uniled
States. The imports continued for
a few months before England shut
them off. Since that time Germany
has had virtually no cotton.
How has she got on without It?
Substitutes for cotton used in explosives are reported lo have been
made. But what about clothing,
pajamas and other things? How can
a nation that uses underwear and
skirts and sliirts and handkerchiefs
and sheets and such bc comfortable
after being shut off for two years
fioni a fresh supply of cotlon?
Where will material for new uniforms for millions of soldiers come
The difficulty of supplying clothing
under such circumstances must be a
serious one.���Kansas City Times,
Studied Savagery
Barriers Set Up by Civilization Re
moved by Germany
Germany is removing one afler an
other of the barriers set up hy civilization for humanizing war, by her
treatment of our prisoners in Germany, by her treatment of the civilian populations of Belgium anel
France, and by the latest development���the attempt to sink harmless
merchantmen, with llieir sailors, plying a peaceful trade. What makes
it dangerous is that it is organized
savagery. It is a savagery which is
taught in their schools, inculcated by
their professors. It is studied savagery. It is the. most dangerous
form of barbarism' that we have ever
been up against. Education, thc instrument of civilization, has been
converted to the inculcation of savagery, and unless the Allies in this
war put an end to lhe possibility by
triumphing over this system il will
mean that we arc back in the barbarism of 20 centuries ago'.���By Lloyd
The Prince a Good Mechanic

The Prince of Wales, who was in

found the woman driver of tin ifficial

Thc Prince of Wales spent nearly
twenty minutes in energetic efforts

"Thanks, awfully," was llic reply.
"Home, please."
"Where's home?" she inquired,

It was only when he replied: Buckingham Palace," that she realized
that her principal mechanician had

Yqu Make What You Bank
The Net Profit of the Town Dweller
and the Fanner is Compared
One day in the summer of 1915,
when buying binder twine in an Iowa
hardware stoic, a farmer bewailed
the amount of twine his big crop
forced him to buy. Today a million
farmers are grumbling about the
high ccst of agricultural implements,
yet, measured in bushels of wheat or
corn, agricultural implements are
cheaper than ever before. When a
business or professional man says he
makes 1*2,000 he means lhat he earned that much and had lo spend most
of.it for living expenses for himself
and family. When a farmer adiuils
that' he made thc same amount or
any oilier amount last year he means
that he put that much money in the
brink afler paying living expenses,
buying an automobile, roofing the
Irani, and seeing lhe circus. Figures
don'l lie, but there is a lot of difference between the way farmers and
the rest of ns figure- earnings and

Germany's Real Purpose
What   a "Peace    Without    Victory"
Would Mean
"Hurl her as lillle as possible/'
say the friends of Germany in England, forgetting thai an inconclusive
peace means a Prussian triumph,
Search as wc may in German newspapers, books, public speeches,
pamphlets and sermons, we shall discern no indications of that change of
mind for which some at home are
wistfully looking. Germany has refused to state her peace terms, and
lhe frank response of the Allies to
President Wilson has called forth a
burst of fury from lhe Kaiser. Willi
Prussian militarism as represented
by the Hohenzollcrns there can bc
no truce unless right and freedom
are to perish. If the advocates of
any easy peace had their way, the
wild beast would be left with his
paw on the victim���panting a little
from the chase, but wilh fierce eyes
searching every thicket for further
spoils. "Peace without victory"
would inaugurate for the whole world
a time of feverish preparation for a
yet more terrible conflict, Germany
would regard such a peace as an interval between the first and second
Punic wars. Having wcakcriTd her
rivals on the continent, she would
strain every nerve I'or lhe destruction
of Britain, Behind the curtain of
peace she would amass lur submarines, airships., deadly weapons of all
kinds, and when llie. moment came
vould launch her forces without
warning against lhc "modern Carthage."
That able Danish writer, Professor
���Bang, of Copenhagen, in his newly-

"and if death should claim ine, my

"I'll be true to you," she sobbed.
"I'll never love anybody else as long
as I live."'
They parted. Six years later hc
returned. His sweetheart of former
years was married! They met at a

"Let me see," she mused, "was it
you or your brother who was my old
"Neither" he replied. "Probably
my father."
The only thing green about a grass
widow is thc fellow who hang;
around her.
C. W. Barron, in an article iu liie
Boston Post, says in part:
1 think J am now al liberty to tell
you something very few people in
the world would be able lo tell you.
In the latter part of last year there
was a very important conference of
German military leaders ou ihe-ir
western frontier. The general staff
had figured out that if the German
defences were removed from the line
of the Somme to the heights of the
Mcusc, 400,000 men could be transferred elsewhere.or held i'i reserve.
This conference was presided i ver by
the Emperor. Von Hindenburg was
brought up from lln: southeastern
front for his opinion, while another
great German general advocated the
I Ian of the general staff, Von Hindenburg said: "We do not now need
4(10,000 men iu thc southeast or elsewhere." The reply was, "Unless you
retire now, vou will ret be able' to
get thc 400,000 men when you do
r.ccd them. Why not shorten your
lines and thereby iner ase your reserves?" The Kaiser decided the
conference with the declaration:
"Four hundred thousand men arc of
less importance to ur, tl an ���!..- m '-..
tcnance of popular support which
would bc weakened by any dray in - in
of our lines." Thc Prussians I ave
clamored for thc last weapon of defence���ruthless submarine warfare to
strike terror to oltl England. The
Zeppelins failed. The : I nlis I ir-.-

'I'he attempt to weaken the union of
the Allies failed. Tiie Rumanian
wheat supplies were burni . 1 the
Rumanian oil wells were dynamited
ahead of the German invaders. The
proposals for a peace dictated by
Germany failed. And now tie German submarines are to attack the
world's commerce, not as an effective weapon of offence or d nee,
but to satisfy German senttmi t and

Argument Against Titles
The argument against titles in Canada is that this country is democratic in its ielenls and aims. This democracy is not served by setting up
a class of tilled persons who will expect to take precedence over their
fellow citizens.
Canada rewards those who serve
her with distinction by contrih .
to their successes, in whatever branch
of endeavor. Reward is earn ! by
the individual in the sense of duty*
performed and objective attained.
Democracy is interdependent and individual success is won by many coc-
tributory agencies.
Another fact that might as well b*
borne in mind is this: These tides are
distributed iu Canada among p-.:: i-
cal friends. This may not always be
lhe ease, but it is tli; rule. Naturally
the suspicion is aroused as a consequence that thc conferring of a
knighthood is n<-t wholly remote
from party service.���London Free
