Not Yet, But-
with the approach of winter and the long, dark evenings do
you not sometimes tliink how convenient it would be if you
couid light 'your house by simply toticning a button. Don't
you dread the daily drudge of cleaning aud filling ill smelling
coal oil lamps?
Wouldn't you like to be able to leave Jthe room without being
afraid that the youngsters would upset the lamp and set fire
to the house?
After visiting your progressive neighbors in their electrically
lighted homes do you   not envv them  wheu you return home
and have   to grope ��around in   the dark to find   a match to
light your lamps?
Did you never bark your shins on [a rocking chair wheu hunting for a match iu the middle of the night?
Don't you think it would be worth something to you to be rid
of all these inconveniences?
Ask your  neighbors  if they   would like to go back to ccal
oil lamps again?
It will pay you to come in and see us about our

The marriage of Elfrida Hart

on Tuesday, October 19th at St,
John's church, Courtenay, at 2 30
p.m. The bride's dress was of
white serge trimmed with old lace,
and with a beautiful veil and orange blossom. She was attended
by Miss Stella Sackville as brides-
1 laid who wore a dress of Saxe
blue satin cloth, and by Gwendoline Smith as flower girl. The
bridegroom had his brother, Mr.
Reginald Pidcock as best man. Mr.
E. Mitchell gave the bride away.
A guard_of honour of the Gordon

contingent, and was wounded in
action and invalided home. He
has now recovered and won a commission as 2nd Lieut, in the Second
Bucks Regiment,) The wedding
service was conducted by the vicar
and the organ was played by Mrs.
Laycock, who also sang a solo during the signing of the register. A
reception was held afterwards at

and many congratulations. They

Radium Cheaper

A special battalion ot pioneers is to

in the west, and thoy will go to the

This is a new military unit. Its duties will be engineering duties, such as

Germans Are Qualifying For the Position of the World's Outlaws
When the ambenllo histories of the
war como to be written, considerable
attention is likely to be paid lo the sinister manner in  which Germany ha.
plotted to inconvenience her enemies
|���among whom she evidently includes
I those neutrals who are supplying nuin-
tions lo the' active belligerents,
The recent Mexican raids across Hie
Texas border afford Still another proof
' of Ihis.   Two Americans were murdered and a third was spared merely be-
i cause the raiders thought he was a
German!    Tlie Incident    ls likely to
arouse a very ugly   temper   In the
States, where the dislike and distrust
I of tlie genuine Americans for the Qer-
lnan-Ameritans is already becoming a
j grave problem.
German Influences arc suspected in
n score of other quarters.   The Koma-
galii Mam. which broughl that historic
cargo of Hindoos to British Columbia
shortly before the  war, Is known io
have boon organized from Berlin. Similarly with the native riot in 'Singapore,
the strikes at American munition factories, tbo unrest In French .Morocco,
j the Senussi  rising In  Tripoli,    lt  is
i Hie same all ov   ��� the world,
j    Tliese treacherous machinations nre
going   lo recoil upon the beads of Ibe
nation that planned them, for there is
not the slightest doubt thai all the civilized governments    will   discourage
German Immigration nfter the recent
j exposures    of tne manner in whicli
j these people abuse the new citizenship
that is granted Ihem.   This nation of
sixly-live millions of people are dellb-
I erately   qualifying for the position of
I the world's outlaws. Every mail's band
j and tongue and pen will be against
' them, and they will find that the civilization which Ihey have llputed so In-
i solently  will  force them ' and  their

The  Gas  Caught  the  Germans
"There is a grim humor in a story
which comes from Petrograd," says a
i London, Eng., paper. "Three thousand
'Germans, preceded by the usual as-
! phyxiating cloud, and with the wind
I nicely behind them, advanced gaily to
! storm a fort at Ossovieos.
Then suddenly the wind changed;
! the gas rolled back upon the advancing
I host, and the filthy .cloud,    combined
with the enemy's guns, practically an-
I nibilaled tlie column, and of throe
I thousand left but three.   The wind can
be a dangerous ally."

Letter to The Editor
Editor Review,
Dear Sir, Will you allow ine space ill
tht.- newspaper to publish au article ileril-
ing with incorrect statements made by
Hugh Morrison last night at the meeting of tin-city council and which are
very misleading to the public. Mr.
Morrison told the city couucil lust nio,ht
that when he sold land to J. Johnston
and J. Halliday Hint ho did not sell the
road. This in not correct because r,
Morrison demanded ami received payment fur ono half of the land required
for the road. We had to accept these
terms or he would not sell the land.
The following description of boundaries
and measurements written in our agreement of purchase will prove what I say:
' 'Commencing at a post on tne most
westerly boundary of l,ot 1.7, Coinox
District, which post is eleven chains and
iiinetynine links from the northwest corner of said I.ot 121 thence at right angles
in an easterly direction u distance of
twenty chains, thence at right angles h
distance of live chains anil twelve links,
thence at right angles a distance of twenty chains aiul from thence fit right angles a distance ol live chillis ��nd twelve
links to the point of commencement and
containing ten acres more or less," less
one hull of tiie road allowance. Mr.
Drabble, the surveyor, reckoned that the
twelve links in breadth by twenty chains
in length would he approximately equal
to one half of the hind required lor llie
public road, which road runs crosswise a
distance of five chains and twelve links.
Tiie above mentioned facts can lie
proven bv the records in tlio Registry
Office, Victoria, B. C. J. Halliday and
myself purchased ten acres each, side by
side, witli descriptions and measurements alike, aril we paid Mr. Morrison
for  one   half   of   the  road allowance.

Therefore 1 think this statement of facts
| will prove to the public that Mr. Morrison did not tell the whole truth to the
city council when he stated Hint he did
not sell any of the land required for the
road allowance.
Yours truly,
Lake Trail
P.S. With further reference to the
road or street which is opposite the objectionable part of sidewalk in dispute,
which was apparently a cunningly planned scheme between D. Kilpatrick, the
Mayor ol our city and W. Hodgson who
does not like to have any of his land
taken for road opposite his premises in
like form as myself and all the owners
of other properties fronting on the street
were recpiired to do.
W. Hodgson  is  not  entitled  to payment for tlie strip of land  required for
tlie   street   opposite   his   premises  any
more than myself, N. concenia, h. Berk-
Icy and others in  that district  because
I we all had to submit  to  the  same con-
! ditions lor the street allowance opposite
1 our premises without  any  payment for
I.'.oicover, at the meeting of the city
couucil l.-mt night I). Kilpatrick the mayor of our C'ity made a shameless exhibition ofhisuntruthfulness and dishonesty
when a show ol hands was taken on the
question to decide whether the sidewalk
be moved back to the registered line.
The amendment got two votes and the
resolution got three votes, making one
of a majority, Neverth -less, the mayor
with shameless lilull called it a tie. The
aldermen present can verily this statement I make. Surely the aldermen of
our citv council and others of our citizens w'ill exercise their self-respect for
fair and honourable proceedure hi our
city council sufficiently to overthrow
such outrageous violation oi decency or
justice. Perhaps these unfavorable experiences will convince the electors of
the necessity of being moro careful in
theii selection ol an honourable mayor
to represent us on our city council and a
body of aldermen who will not tolerate
Muffin lieu ol proper procedure.
Yours : '
Hake Trail.

When the   plank  question came ' ^ted  at  Courtly "tit 201^7��'
up   again Aid.   Robertson   moved     October 1915,
that the citv   take up the   planks, ' _ 	
where they did not seem to be wanted, and place theni in some other
place in town where they were
van ted and would be appreciated,
in front of the English church,
This was seconded by Aid. McKenzie,
Aid. Kerton thought Aid, Johnston should be allowed to move the
planks back. Then the sidewalk
would be close to the fence, and
the squbble between Johnston and
Hodgson would be out of the council.
Aid Johnston said he had no
squabble with Mr Hodgson.
Hugh A orrison asked permission
to address the council. He said
the sidewalk and roadway was 48
feet out of its proper place. He
was was the original owner of the
land and should know.
Aid. Leighton then moved that
Mr. Johnston be given permission
to move the sidewalk and put in a
connection to the portion in front

motion received three votes each,
and the mayor declared them both
lost. The sidewalk will stay where
it is.
Aid. McKenzie wanted to know

Happiest Man is Honest
Wo have noticed the happlesl man
many a lime Ile works for his living
and he gets' a good one. One thing we
notice is ho is u man of line habits;
doesn't squander a cent on liquor, tobacco or betting. lie .saves his money
aud i.s getting ready to buy some prop-
erty. tip loves Ills home, plays with
the children, reads good books and
keeps company witli bis wife. He-
cause of Ills good habits he saves a
little whieh will givp him u chance to
make an investment,
And then lliere is another thing���-ho
is a reliable man. He does good work.
He will not. smooth over hud work.
Every dollar bo gels represents just
that much of honest labor. It is this,
largely, thai makes him prosperous
and happy. Water keeps Its own
level, ami so does conduct and character and prosperity, If a man Is mean
and low, so will lhe consequences be.
He cannot he one thing and his experience another, A low lived man may
grow rich und happy, but il will not be
for long. Anybody ean lell what's tli a
matter with a man if lie is witli him
a day. he will soon see il' the other
is a spleen, a stomach, an uplift or a
hope.   Ohio State Journal.

Follies Concert;
The "Follies" concert in the
Opera [louse on Friday evening
lust was a success in every particular, and was greeted by a large
audience, Some good entertain
ments have been given bv local
performers in the past, but it is
safe to say that ihis one has capped
tin: climax

The company were all in good
voice, and had been carefully dril
led by Mrs. Robertson, wlm was
the originator of the scheme to
carry on some kind of a musical
organization after the departure of
Dr Crompton when the Glee Club
broke up,
For beginners Miss Annie Carroll and Mrs Cooke did splendidly
and will li'ely be heard from again,
Miss Jean McKenzie's song was
atre.it to listen to mid her dance
was very pretty and all too short.
This was Mrs. Fairburn's first
appearance on a Courteuay stage,
and she made a hit with the audience in " Tipperary Mary."
Mrs. Mclntyre is always a favorite
with Courtenay audiences and ber
solo and duet with the other "Mac"
were much enjoyed.
The gentlemen we   have with us
always, and they are all good songsters and entertainers.
I    K, I/indon's   5:15 express was a
' clever exhibition and  received wel,
merited applause, while his  sketch
1 "Prof. Knobiickler"  in    which he
j was assisted by Mr. Shepherd,
j     Mr. Burnett gave  a good rendi-
: tion of 'California"
A. W, Shepherd, who "went as
far  as he liked"  and   "parted his
hair iu   the  middle" was a  whole
[ show in himself, and made himself
! particularly agreeable to the ladies.
i     Jock Thompson w.is particularly
j fascinating when "Courting Bonnie
Lizzie   Lindsay,"   and   his   song
j "When I Get Back  Again to Bonnie Scotland', was particulary well
rendered and enjoyed,
Mr  Mclntyre   appeared   in tiro
I duets and a so.o "Whoops Let's do
I it Again" and  as usual   whenever
j he appears gave a good account of
himself and his efforts were appreciated by the audience.
;     Some of the local  "hits" by We
and   Us   were  timely,   especially
j those referring to planks and lights
in the orchard.

The following interesting letter
i.s from extracts from a letter received bv Mr. Geo. H. Roe, formerly
of Union Bay, now serving with
the Gordon Highlanders, from his
son Desmond, who was well known
in this disHot, and who left with
the 48th Bat'aliou on Friday, Jun��
26, Col. Holmes in command, and
a:rived in due time at Shorncliffe,
his vessel being escorted the last
two days into Plymouth by a des
troyer. He says the weather has
been very bad, heavy rain falling
continually. Drill has been maintained 9 hours a day and leave of
absence hard to get. Tlicre were
a number from each company chosen to attend a school of musketry
at Lydd. lie was one, but was for
some time one of the battalion's
sharpshooters. Latterly he has
been attending classes under Major
Beale in map reading and drawing.
Apparently he has shown ability
in his work for in his last letter he
has been promoted from lance corporal to sergeant, The 48th is not
being sent lo front as a unit but is
being split up In drafts to reinforce
at the front, This he says is a keen
disappointment to them, but re- j
marks that it cannot be helped. Al- j
ready the first draft of the 48th,. 160 j
men, have been chosen and gone to
the front. He meet good old Jack
Milligan one day recently at the |
Strand, London, when he washsv-!
ing a ramble through that big city, I
He was well; also Dick Ray and
Leonard Picket; they are now at
the front in this 160 draft. He
says he would give a good many
dollars to have a bit of shooting
with the boys up north again, but
says his hunting trip at home i.s
not far off and he feels fit and fine
for it. He says there is lots of
game to lie had too and expects to
bag a good few of those- ugly, big
The friends of H. Dalnt Golden
will also be glad to know that he is
well. He belongs also to the 48th
Battalion. He used to be teller
