Mrs. Russell walked down the

Buoyancy of Fresh and Salt Water
A Chinese lad dropped his ball in a
narrow hole and uould not get it out.
So ho poured water in the hole, thinking that he would float, the ball to the
surface. As the ball was slightly hea.
ier than Water, it remained on the bottom. Then lie thought of mixing salt,
with the water, as he knew that salt
water would float denser objects than
fresh. This he did and was rewarded
with the float! ig ball.
This particular fact.is demonstrated
at the mouths of rivers. Objects rolling along.tlio botf.'im of a fresh river
too heavy to come to the top, will rise
when they are carried out to sea. Tho
general rule also applies to floating
bodies. For' instance, a ship with a
cargo on the sea will sink sometimes a
foot on entering a fresh waler port.
On the oilier hand, if she leaves a
fresh water port, with her cargo she
will rise whr.i entering the ocean. So
a ship may he loaded apparently too
much at a wharf and still be all right.
on the waves.
In building a dam the fact of salt
water's being heavier than fresh must
be taken into consideration, and the
for j dam for the same head must be a good
deal stronger; this, too, without taking
into considi ration the beating of
waves, etc.���St. Louis Republic.

Return of Youth With Proper Food
Many persons who eat plenty never
seem to be properly nourished.
That's because the food Is not digested and absorbed. Much that is eaten is never taken up by tne system
as real food, and so the tissues elm-

what should be the bloom of life,

The Salt Sea Legend
There is a legend In the "Norse
' scalds which explains why the sea is
salt. The "bountiful Fordi, whose
mythical reig.i was a golden age indeed, possesse.l a juern, or hand null,
which ground out gold and peace, but
which would grind out stores of anything desired by lis owner. Two giant
maidens, ruled over by Frodl, were
the griudera. In an evil day a^ sea
rover came upon the scene, slew Fordi
and carried tho quern off and the
two giant maidens who worked It.
When the sea, rover's vessel was
right out at sea he ordered the maidens to grind salt. At midnight they
asked it they had not ground enough.
The sea rover, angry al being awakened from his sleep, commanded them
to grind until morning. Now-, the
giant maidens naturally enough worked very quickly so as they went on
grinding the load of salt, grew so
heavy that it sank the ship, and now
the sea will continue suit forever.

Cure Of
Nervous Prostration
Four Doctors Had Failed���Hope Given Up
Mrs. E. T. Ford, 55 McGee Street, Toronto, Ont., states:���"Some time ago
I Was ill from nervous prostration and for many weeks was in a very serious
condition. 1 was treated by four different doctors without receiving any benefit
from their treatment. I had quite given up hope when one day my husband
saw Dr. Chase's advertisement, and it seemed so to suit my case that I bought
a box of Nerve Food. I improved so rapidly that I continued using the Nerve
Food, and I am thankful to say, it worked a complete cure. Since that time,
we have never been without it in the house, and I gladly recommend it to all
my neighbors."
Her Pastor's Endorsement
Rev. G. M. Holmes, Pastor of Eastern Ave. Baptist Church, Toronto, writes:���
" I have known Mrs. Ford as a member of my church for over two years, and
know that any statement she would make would be correct."
System Run Down���Awfully Nervous
Mrs. John Walfield, La Have Islands, Lunenburg Co., N.S., writes:���"Two years ago my system
became greatly run down, and I was awfully nervous. It was very difficult for me to do my housework, and I felt very miserable, 1 doctored but did
not receive any benefit until I began the use of
Dr. Chase's Nerve Food. This medicine proved
of wonderful benefit to me, building up the system
and restoring health and strength. I always feel
now that if I do get run down I can depend on Dr.
Chase's Nerve Food to make me strong and well.
"My husband was troubled with dizziness and
nervous headache, and was cured by the Nerve
Food.   He would not be without it in the home."

The motto of the International
Irrigation Congress, which meets
in Western Canada this year,
"Save the Forests, Store the
Floods" is readily appreciated in
British Columbia.
In the Valleys of the Kootenay
River, Okanagan Lake, Thompson
aud Fraser Rivers there are about
too.ooo acres of land which are
greatly improved iu productive ca-,
pacity by irrigation. The streams!
from which .\at:r must be secured,
without exception head in timbered
The timber in the headwaters of
these streams is not at present valuable for agricultural purposes.
Its value to the public, however,
is shown by its Influence on stream
A stream to be valuable for irrigation must supply water regularly
during the dry summer season.
Watersheds barren of forests act
like roofs. They pour the waters
from spring rains and melting snow
down over their bare rock slopes
in torrents in the early season when
water i.s not needed for irrigation,
When midsummer comes and water
is needed for man aud fruit crops,
those streams are dry, Forested
watersheds, on the other hand, do
not give up their waters so prodigally. The timber protects the
snow and holds its melting later in
the summer. The waters from rain
and melting snow are caught by
tne vegetation beneath the trees,
soak into the spongy soil covering
of moss, mulch and decayed vegetation are led by myriad little
channels into the open soil, aud
seep gradually down, appearing be-
ow iu springs which feed the
streams suminerlong.
Certain forests iu the Province,
particularly in the mountains
around Okanagan Lake, are given
special care in lire protection because of the immense value of the
water   yielded   by   their

Letter to The Editor
Dear Sir:���Natural conditions
have this summer beeu more favourable to forest fires in Older British
Columbia, the district south of the
Railway belt, than in any other
previous summer in ten years.
There has been eight weeks of
drought, during which hot days,
hot nights and high winds have
dried timber and vegetation, fanned
sparks and carried flames beyond
control in an instant.
The great danger has fortunately
been apparent to everyone. Land
clearing operations,, campers, construction works, railroads, have
been kept under careful watch by
private citizens, timber owners and
forest guards. During June more
fires were extinguished by forest
officers in dangerous districts tl.iau
had occurred all last summer. In
July as the conditions grew worse
the patrol staff was increased, Towards the end of July, as the whole
country became extremely inflam-
able awaiting only a spark, special
warning was sent forest officers to
see that all fires we<- immediately
extinguished and dangerous operations suspended.
The precautions taken were well
justified,    Many fires escaped control aud were only, by the wholesale employment of men, by loggers
railroad companies aud the  Forest
Branch, kept from doiug serious I
damage.    Fires have gained a fly-!
ing start   on   the   slash resulting
front the past few years logging i
For two weeks over 3000 men, and I
on three cccasions,  special   trains
have   been   employed     restricting
Sres.to   logged   over   areas,    The
efforts have   been   successful   except in two instances'.   The  worst
fire loss has beeu at Bull River'
where two fires started  from  logging camps swept simultaneously
through  slash,    surrounded    500
fire fighters with great loss of timber and  it is feared  loss of  life.
Another fire starting from railroad
construction    destroyed    valuable |
timber in the Similkatneen Valley.
Many fires iu slashings are still unextinguished.   A   continuance of
dry weather will result in  further
loss of timber in spite of the efforts
of the Forest Branch,
The prevention of forest fires is
for endorsement
The above resolution was unanimously passed at the meeting of the
North Cowichan Council. The
resolution was tbe outcome of the
discussion on what flag should be
bought for the municipality. Tt
was arranged to buy a Union Jack.

The Salt Sua Legend
There is a legend In the Noise
scalds which explains why the sea is
salt The "bountiful Fordi.' whoso
mythical reig.i was a golden age indeed, possessed a Jtieni, or hand m.n,
which ground out gold and peace, but
which would grind .out stoves of anything desired bv its owner. Two giant
maidens, ruled over by Frodi, were
the grinder.-,. In an evil day a sea
rover came upon the scene, slew Fordi
and carried the quern off and the
two giant maidens who worked it.
When the sen rover's vessel was
right out at sea be ordered the maidens lo grind salt. At midnight they
asked if they ha.l not ground enough.
The sea rover, angry at being awakened from his sleep, commanded tbem
to grind until morning. Now, the
giant maidens naturally enough worked very quickly so as they went on
grinding the load of salt grew so
heavy that, it sank the ship, and now
the sea will continue salt forever.

Cure Of
Nervous Prostration
Four Doctors Had Failed���Hope Given Up
Mrs. E, T. Ford, 55 McGee Street, Toronto, Ont., states: -"Some, time ago
I was ill from nervous prostration and for many weeks was in a very serious
condition. I was treated by four different doctors without receiving any benefit
from their treatment. I had quite given up hope when one day my husband
saw Dr. Chase's advertisement, and ;t seemed so to suit my case that I bought
a box of Nerve Food. I improved so rapidly that I continued using the Nerve
Food, and I am thankful to say, it worked a complete cure. Since that time,
we have never been without it in the house, and I gladly recommend it to all
my neighbors."
Her Pastor's Endorsement
Rev. G. M. Holmes, Pastor of Eastern Ave. Baptist Church, Toronto, writes:���
"I have known Mrs. Ford as a member of my church for over two years, and
know that any statement she would make would be correct."
System Run Down���Awfully Nervous
Mrs. John Walfield, La Have Islands, Lunenburg Co., N.S., writes:���"Two years ago my system
became greatly run down, and I was awfully nervous. It was very difficult for me to do my housework, and I felt very miserable, I doctored but did
not receive any benefit until I began the use of
Dr. Chase's Nerve Food. This medicine proved
of wonderful benefit to me, building up the system
and restoring health and strength. 1 always feel
now that if I do get run down I can depend on Dr.
Chase's Nerve Food to make me strong and well.
"My husband was troubled with dizziness and
nervous headache, and was cured by the Nerve
Food.   He would not be without it in the home."

Letters to The Editor
The Editor, Courtenay Review,
Dear Sir,���As an okj resident of 1
Courtenay I really cannot understand why there should be a
moment's hesitation as to tlie'best
site for the post office, and the excuse given by Mr. Clements that it
i.s absolutely necessaryjfor it to be
built on Isabel Street because tenders have been invited is most
absurd, and one which any six
business men would say could not
be sustained. j
Although .Mr, Clements, last j
February, six months after Mr. I
Henderson chose a site objected to |
by some eitizeu-j -pretended to give .
them a chance to change it. I do
not think, in view of what he stated at the meeting on the 3rd ill- i
stant, that he could have been sin-.
I am amazed at this, when at
least eighty per cent, of the people
want it built on the main street.
Yours truly, !
Au Old Resident
Courteuay, Aug. 12, 1914.
-Editor Review
Dear Sir:���In a recent issue t' e
Review gave the standing of the
pupils from Courtenay who had
passed their examinations,! but you
made no mention of the particularly fine record made by one of them.
You stated that Master John Duncan of Sandwick had passed fifth
in his class at King Edward High
School. This gives uo idea of his
record. I beg to call your attention
to the fact that he passed first in a
class of thirty-six. But in addition
to this, there were 290 pupils ir
his year ill the King Edward High
School, and he passed fifth 111 this
list of two hundred and ninety
A record like this deserves
special notice, It is a credit to
the people of Comox Valley that
they can send out pupils able to
take a standing like this, It is a
credit to the Courtenay school.
But so far as I know all, or most
of the pupils sent out from thi
Courtenay School during the past
few years have _nade a good record
This goes to show that pupils in
the country schools, if they  work
faithfully, can do as well or  better
than the pupils in city schools.
Yours Truly

from a balcony immediately above,
when the guests joined in 'singing
with a spirit seldom, seen  on  this
part of the Island.   The band then
played ''Rule Brittania,'' when the
crowds standing in their places at
the table joined in the singing, the
sound floating over Discovery passage in the stillness of the night
and making   the   tall   timbers  of

Effort Being Made to Attract a Greater Number of Desirable Settlers to
Western Canada, Where Opportunities For New Comer Are ol the
With the iiiinoiiuei'iiicnt recently ot
the scheme io form the Western t'an-
lda Colonisation   and   Development
League, whose object was renewed activities for agricultural Immigration
especially, reports have been received
at ilu' provisional headquarters of ibis
organisation hi North Battleford, thai
agitations are being started by a number of individuals, apparently representatives of newspapers In the old
country  and Ihe  United  Stales,  wilb
tbe idea ot forming local colonisation
schemes, which so fur appear to be
tfrgely attempts ou the part of private individuals or newspapers lo secure  an   appropriation  of  money   lor
advertising purposes, it was with the
Intent of obviating the BQUatlderlllg
uf money ou individual lines that gave
rise ..i lhe Idea of forming one concrete organization, to carry ou a campaign lor Western Canada as a whole.
It wus alsc realized that. Western Canada had a much greater attraction lo
the public of Great Britain and ihe
United Slates than any one locality;
this conception was backed up almost.
unanimously bv boards of trade snd
eit> councils from the Pacific coast to
the Ureal Lakes,
Wben one considers the fact that for
the government year of 1018 eastern
Canada received 207,000 Immigrants,
whereas Western Canada received
1115,1)01), it is evident that more aggressive methods must be adopled and
a greater amount of money spent, and
spent, judicially, to increase the Influx of Immigration and develop Ihe
resource.! of Western Camilla. Last
j ear the east was the destination of by
far the greatest percentage of Canada's immigration and this is accounted for by Ontario's Increased activity, they having established headquarters iu England, with a capable
and aggressive organization, specifically charged with lhe duties of expediting emigration and development.
It does not seem that lhe various
provinces of Western t'anadr. have
been keeping pace with the activities
of Ontario and, in fact; in some quarters It would appear lhat not only Is
attempt being made to secure settlement but rat It or that immigration is
being deprecated���for what good reason it Ib hard to fathom, li is understood that the province of Saskatchewan encourages Ju the old country
merely farm laborers and domestic
servants to come out: and it is reported that, personally, the representative
ot Sasaklchewan���filled With the possibilities of Western Canada, actually
encouraged other emigration, for
which ho was severely reprimanded.
To the average business man, who
believes that the developemnt of Western Canada as a whole Is of greater
importance than the temporary success of any one political party, the
report tbat there are policies ill existence antagonistic, to increased immigration is of very serious import.
Such policies should be thoroughly investigated by the farm land brokers,
as well ac by the holders of large
areas ot agricultural lands, which fere
held for sa'e and on which taxes are
at the present time being paid to the
various municipalities. It is ridiculous for a municipality to enforce taxation on vf.cant lands when especially
the government of the province and,
In some er.ses. tho people, are not only
not adopting any strenuous methods
to increase the developmnt of the
land and bring In a good class of agricultural settlers, but, as it Is reported, In some eases are actually blocking
the way.
It was staled recently by the repie-
sentative of large English interests
that there were thousands of thoroughly qualified farmers' sons In the
old country with ��100 to .CI'.OO a
piece, who, if Western Canada's advantages were properly placed before
them, would readily grasp the opportunity of becoming valuable settlers
for Western Canada, ll was slated that
these peo.de are not being reached
through present loims ot advertising
in Great Britain and, judging by the
Immigration returns, the statement
would appear lo have good grounds.
It should 1 e recognized also that Australia and olher colonics of Uie British Empire are active In co-operatlns
with the old country In securing settlers and It is ev n Intimated that today Grcat. Brltali- is more friendly to
her lmigration going to Australia, New
Zealand ;.i.d South Africa than to
Canada. Every one believes '.hat there
ls no line, country in the world than
Western Canada and olher parts of ilie
world must r.ot be allowed to beat
Western Canada ln lhe race for supremacy.

Qualities of  Radium  Not  Understood
Nothing in modern times has led to
such quackery us the word "radium."
It Is therefore very interesting to
learn that the British Science guild
has taken the matter up and has investigated the way that the word,
and the element lhat the word denotes,
has been exploited on a confiding public. Radium is a metal ot which a
minute specimen has been prepared
and this faint, silvery film is In the
possession of Mine Curie, in Purls. It
is sealed up In the little quartz crucible ln which it was first produced,
The so-called radium of which we hear
so much is one of the sails of radium, either the chloride or the bromide, gcenrally the latter and somehow
or olher it bas been taken by the popular mind as a great healer.
The man in the si reel stems to
think that it is some kind of a costly
drug that has been invented l.y doctors. It is ccstly, no doubt, but it is
not a drug. If It had not been for a
curious accident the word 'radium"
would probably have been quite unknown excepting I. sell ntists. it would
certainly have been no more famous
than cerium, ot thorium or iinarium.
The accident was an odd cr.e Professor Cnrrle cama across from Paris
lo show lha Londoners at the Royal
Institution the remarkable new stilt
that his wife had gol trine lhe risldues
of uranium mines. He curried it In
his waistcoat pocket and got his aide
badly burned. Just about that time it
was becoming recognized that the X-
rays could hurt the skins of people
who were exposed to their Influence;
but it was also njticed that in certain
cases X-rays were of definite value,
especially In the keeping down of the
pain of cancer Some cases o" cancer
got batter and X-rays were heralded
as the "cure."
The production of X-rays, oi rather,
the method of producing them, was at
that time very uncertain. It is not
much better now. Just a few methods for measuring the energy g'.Vori off
from a Crookes1 t be have bem tried,
but they arc very feeb'e and very inaccurate. A. Cr ;okes tube varies from
moment to moment, and no one excepting an expei" operator can lell
what lhe X-rays i'. give-, off aro likely
to do, either in binning a hand or giving an impression on a photographic
The connection between X-utys and
radium will be seen when it is explained that one of the first discoveries mado by Mine. Curie was tbat
even her crudd material was radiant,
Amongst other Strang: properties it
had the power of giving three different
kinds cf rays, which she named by tha
first three lottirs of the Greek alphabet. The till. st.-. of rays were identical with the X-rays that have been
found so ungovernable in all hospitals. They are given off with prefect
reguarlty and without any of the sudden changes that are fount! In :.
Crookes' lube. So H was natural that
"radium" should be used wherever _���
rays had shown decern results, tut
bad failed oecav.si ot tlieir uncertainty.
That was the beginning of the use
of radium In tlr: surgery. II was a
substitute for X-rays. .Naturally
more has been discovered about l>
since then, aud equally naturally, the
word "radium" has been exploited in
all ways.
Radium Is of enormous value when
properly used; but, radium quackery
seems likely now to be one of the
great modern cures. The medical committee of the British Science guild
wants to kill the quackery.

The Outlook
The outlook for good times in
Courtenay for the coining winter is
not very promising. Last week
the Logging Camps started to close
down, and by the 15th of the
month every man in the Company's
employ is expected to be off the
pay roll. The Company is evidently preparing for a long shut-down,
as they are taking all machinery
down, and storing it at Headquarters.
Mrne 8, which was closed a
couple of weeks ago is likely to remain closed for some considerable
time- The report that it was to be
re-opened last week having no
foundation whatever. The other
mines at Cumberland, which have
been running on short shifts for
months past, are busy, owing to a
few large orders for coal being

Imaginary troubles cause more
worry than real ones.
Women are always ready to kiss
and make up���but they usually
make up before they kiss.
Many a man's success is due to
the fact that he got busy and answered a few of his own prayers,
A young man may have to fight
for the first kiss and thereafter
wear a catchers mask for self-protection.
The first train over the east coast
extension of the Exquimalt & Nanaimo railway left the Victoria
depot at 9 o'clock last Thursday
morning, and consisted of baggage
and express cars and four coaches.
The locomotive was in charge of
Engineer M. Fagan, and the ttain
of Conductor W. F. Fletcher, At
Russell the yard lccotnotive was
changed for a gaily decorated
engine to carry th. first passengers
nort'tward. The inauguration of
the service took place without any
formal ceremony, however, that
function being timed to come later,
when the international situation is
easier, In the unavoidable absence
of General Superintendent Beasley,
Superintendent Goodfellow accompanied the train.
The train took about seven hours
to make the journey, leaving Parksville junction at 14.28, the time
