were none the less nappy for that,

Vera produced a liny packet from

In his band, dissolved to nothingness, f
Ills face was very pale.
"Darling, Ibis Is a dreadful thing,"
he murmured, "I fancy-���"
tie paused, fearful of alarming
Vera. He saw Ihe hand of fate In
this; he saw Ibe sword thai was hanging over that beloved young life.
A passion of anger and despair lined him, but for Vera's sake he cheeked the feeling. And ii seemed to him
as it he bad passed in a minute down
a decade of vcars; as if in that brief
he had left Uii
id become a man.
"This must he looked im

"Has been taken," Vera said quietly. "We have a protector among us,
dearest. One who is worth all the
precautions put together. Do nol fear
for mo and do not ask me any questions, because I musi not answer
them,   llul i am safe."
Geoffrey nodded. The cloud slowly
lifted from his forehead- Vera was
.speaking of her uncle Ralph and there
wan no reason to ask any questions.
Was It possible. Geoffrey wondered,
that Ralph Ravens] nr had gone to the
heart ot the mystery, thai il was wrap
pod up in liis life, and
eome home to solve it?
But of this he said nothing, lie resolved io lender every assistance,
This vile thing was the work of earthly hands, and earthly Ingenuity could
solve it. Never was ihere cipher invented that was incapable of solution.
Geoffrey drew Vera to bis side and
kissed her passionately. For a little
time she lay in his arms in absolute
content, lier smiling eyes were clear,
but features placid. In any case she
feared no unseen danger. There must
be some greal sheltering power lie-
bind her, or she bad never looked
so sweet and  placid as that.
"1 could not do without yon, darling." Geoffrey said.
"And you are not goin.; to do Without, me," Vera smiled. "There is much

Short Versus Tall Man

and weight as a qualification for national service liad had its little day. j
It. was weight of brain and proportions j
of trunk thai counted. The short or |
average man had more endurance,
more pugnacity, more responsive power than the average tall man. Quickness of response came from lhe shorter length of nerve: there was .inure

general    came    lo demand    explanations.

the view that the war would cement I

well known by physicians to be caused
by caffeine. This la the drug found
by chemists in  tea  i nil  coffee.
A woman suffered a long time with

doctor told her she must give up coffee, as that was the principal cause of
the trouble.    She writes:
"My heart was so weak it could not
do ils work properly. .My husband
would sometimes have to curiy me
from the tablo, and it would sceni that
1  would never breathe again.

nor those spells with weak heart. We
know it is Postum that helped me.

Experiments in Horticulture
Director J. II. Grisdale, of the
Dominion Experimental Farms, expresses the hope in a letter to the
Minister of Agriculture, that Bulletin No. 82, of the Division of
Horticulture, just issued, will be of
material aid to the Canadian farmer.
The contents certainly warreut expectation of fulfilment ot the hope.
The Bulletin is one of 88 pages and
has teen prepared by Mr W. T.
Macoun, Dominion Horticulturist
aud the Superintendents of the
Branch Experimental Farms and
Stations. It tells the story of results
experimentally achieved in all parts
of the country, and under varying
conditions, in the cultivation of
every species of vegetable, every
variety of fruit and of many descriptions of trees, plants and
flowers. At this juncture it is interesting to look back at conditions
in the corresponding period of last
year. While unfavourable for early
crops, 1914, we are told, was on
the whole favourable. Apiil, May
and June were dry aud the conditions, consequently, were not good.
Indeed some vegetables had to be
resown. Potatoes ultimately yielded a good crop. Apples also recovered and did well. Strawberries
would have been almost a total
failure but for artificially applied
Remits of hot-house as well as
o��t-door experiments are detailed
Pomology is made a prominent
feature, the chapter on the new
varieties of apples that have been
tested at the Central Experimental
Farm being one that is worthy
special attention. As a matter- of
fact the Bulletin covers so wide a
Flies! How They Breed
Some one has calculated that if
six batches of egg-;, of one hundred
and fifty each, all hatch out, and
supposing all to live and find filth
to breed in, the number would be
Can you grasp Ute numbers?
Think of it! This enormous nu n-
ber is gravely staled to lie enough
to bury the entire earth 47 feet
Take another calculation from
a different source:
"A pair of flies start house-keeping now. (April) barring accidents
have 126,000,000 descendants by
Yet another reliably proved instances of the rate of production:
From one fly 120 at a time will develop into full fledged flies in ten
to twelve days, Inside another
fifteen days, thc flias from the first
batch of eggs will produce about
7,000 more, and inside thirty days
the numbers will be about 500,000
What is the moral ?
Swat the first and early flies
Swatting is good, but it is too
big a job if tna early ones escape,
Cleanliness, the abolition of filth
manure piles and moist accumulation near dwellings are much more
efficient methods of preventing the
propagation of the pest than any
amount of swatting after production.
Flies are filthy insects, which
both breed ard feed in filth. They
have no right in oue homes, where
they come in search of high living
It requires the power of a miscro-
scope to get a real picture of the
flv in all his ugliness, but the
photographic lens has given a good
idea of how well adapted he is for
carrying filth germs,

"No, Sir, "
"Doing this for a moving picture concern ?''

Neglect of Over Cut Areas
The neglect of cut-over timber areas is
deplored by Mr. Clydel.eavitt, Chief Inspector of the Board Jof Railway Commissioners. He states that forest growth
has been utterly destroyed by repeated
lires on thousands of square miles of
such non-agricultural lands in Eastern
Canada. Lumbermen show a tendency
to abandon tliese limits since there is no
young growth to promise future profits.
The revenues of the several provinces
will therefore suffer, not only from loss
of stumpage. dues, but from the cessation
of ground rental. The virgin forests
are disappearing fast enough to demand
more attention being paid to the limits
previously cut over. Not only is the
young growth destroyed so but also are
the seed trees which are needed to reproduce the more valuable species. Soil
fertility suffers from loss of humus and
erosion goes on until bare rock is exposed. Mr. Leavitt concludes tbat these
wastes might be made permanent sources
ol raw material for industry.

courtenav condensed Milk co,
For which the concert and dance was given at Courtenay
last Friday evening
The concert and dance given in
the Opera house last Friday evening
by the members of the Campbell
River Social Club in aid of the
hospital at that place, was a very
entertaining affair. The yotir.g
people cf Camplxll River have
plenty of talent and it is to be regretted that  a larger number did
not avail themselves of a rich treat
and also to assist a worthy caufe.
A full report of the concert given
at Campcall River and appeared ln
these columns a fortnight ago, and
the programme was the same, with
the addition that the performets
probably did their parts a little
better. The dance after the con-
' cert was a very enjoyable one.
Letters to The Editor
To the Patrons of the Courtenay Condensory:���I am writing this letter to the
patrons of the Condensory who do not
know the wrong they are doing the
district by selling their milk to the condensory at 35 cents \ er pound butterfat.
By selling milk at the above price you
are making the condensory people the
handsome present of over $1000 a month
as the Condensory is taking in abott 8
tons a day, which, il reckoned up at the
low rate of 4.2 per cent butterfat, would
mean that the patrons are gi\ ing $1008
a mouth away. In the circular letter sent
to the patrons, they speak as il they are
overstocked with condensed milk. Why-
are they so anxious to get more partons?
They have even taken on patrons lately'
who send as low ������ s from 2 to .5 pounds
per day of milk, in an 8 gal. can If
they are overstocked why is it that the
wholesale dealers in Victoria cannot get
Buttercup Brand milk?
Some of the dealers here in the district
could not get Buttercup Brand Condensed
Milk for the simple reason that they did
not deal witli the Kelly Douglas Co.        |
In tlieir letter t'tey do not say that
they are going to lower the price of their
condensed milk, Then why should they
lower the price on.our milk? ,
Mr. Patron it is time now that you
were showing your loyalty to your dis-1
tricl by kicking before the Condensory
people get the habit of lowering the
price ot milk .So per pound butterfat

To the Editor of the Courtenay  Review
Sir,���Will you pleas; publish copy of
the letter sent to tbe Patrons of the
Corutenay condensed Milk co., which
explains why they are offering to buy
milk at the price stated.
Since tlie war broke out, we have been
doing our level best to keep to our
voluntary undertaking to pay our
patrons the price of 35 cents in winter
and 40 cents in summer for tlieir milk,
notwithstanding that every mercantile,
financial, and other house in the country
has had to reduce its price in some way
or other to meet the new order of things.
You have been getting the maximum
price during this time.
The sale of condensed Milk in B. C.
has dropped down to one-tenth of what
it was when we opened our factory, and
we understand that other condensed
milk factories have had their plants
closed down since last fall, but on account of our firm being in sjch close
touch with the trade, we have been able
to dispose of most of our manufacture,
though at the present time we are carrying in stock ten thousand leases, There
is very little railway construction going
on, the same with the lumbering and
mining industries, and these were the
big consumers of condensed milk.
Rather than close our factory until
Condi ions improve, and there Is a market for milk, which would work a hardship on our patrons, we hnve decided to
offer, commencing June 1st, a price of
35 cents per poundf butterftt, and if this
price meets with the approval of our
patrons, we will continue manufacturing
milk as long as we can mrke financial
arrangements to carry the surplus of
manufactured product,

Banker and Farmer
A Strong Plea Made For a Better Understanding
Why is  there not a  belter  understanding between agriculture ami nuance, between farmer and bunker?   It
is commonly known that a very smii
percentage  of the  credit  secured  uy
Hie farmers is obtained from the local
bunk.   The   tanner secures his credit
from the local merchant, implement
agent or lumberman, these retail men
In  turn  get  their  credit    from   the
wholesaler   and   manufact rer,     and
they  from   me    banker,     for    real
money the  farmer goes to lhe  loan
company.    This is ail common know-1
ledge.    Why  ihould it be thus? With |
tliMbanks represented in every small |
town through the country, it would be I
supposed that a large    part of their!
business would be to handle farmers'j
accounts, and  tbey do handle  some,
nut  on   ihe   whole,  ine   farmer    and'
banker are entirely out of sympatny j
with one miolhe.'.
The high  rate o.' interest charged,!
und tho extreme cautloi   with which i
credit  has  been  given  has  been  lhe j
cause of the farm 's' unfriendly attitude.    This  attitude  lias   been   warranted, undoubtedly,  In  some cases,
but not always, The fanners as wali

a neat percentage of had accounts, In

Had  lhe  fanner  i.nil  banker  known

banks     and   hunkers  must    shoulder
much  of tlie  blame.    Too often the'
local managers do not know agricul-1

district   aiid   know    their    financial

Future of India
May Have a Fuller Participation in

What will be thc status of India
In the British empire after the war.
Kven in Hie press of instant needs,
that question must cross the minda
of thoughtful Britisli statesmen, but
it is doubtful/If the most farse'ing
among ihem can give it anything like
a full or certain answer. Only one
things is sure: India wi I claim and
receive a larger measure of self-government and fuller participation in
Imperial affairs than she has bad before.
The loyalty Of India has been one of
the greal surprise of lhe war. Instead of bursting into a flame of revolution lhe moment Britain was involved in Kurope, India ha: coma
forward with voluntary offerings of
money and troops, suspended all ,ig.-
intloii for political changes until after the war, turned a deaf ear to th��
persuasions Of Kaiser and Sultan.
Sil lis nml Gurkhas are on the tiring
line In France; native princes have
offered  their personal services In tne
Provinces and principalities which
I roved their value In this fashion in
time of war cannot be relegated to
the stains of lesser breeds without
tiie law in time of peace. But what
ether status can they assume? Can
India be trusted witli self-government like that which prevails in Canada and Australia? ran Europeans
and Asiatics henceforth work side by
side, instead of tandem, as hitherto?
Will ihe islanders wbo developed

for centuries Iind that, after all, they
have a common ideal in the empire?

about twenty parcels of land, and
the first twenty men in the line recorded tliese lots. At Alberni
where 247 lots on Malcolm Island
and 39 lots on Nootka Island were
offered, but six of tlie 286 lots were
recorded, though Malcolm Island
was considered as offering better
agricultural possibilities than the
logged off areas opened on the
Lower Mainland Coast. At Cranbrook 21 of the 97 parcels offered
to pre-emptors were recorded; and
at Fernie the 6 lots opened were
taken up. The demand fer waterfront lots on the coast, especially
the tract near Schelet, and many
of these who gathered at Vancouver, turned away without considering the other lots wh.-n tl e^e were
reco ded by the first 20 men in the

office of the Government agent at
Vancouver six weel s prior to fie
opening date, and received tickets
iu order of their arrival. Of the

waterfront. There were 5 > lots in

taken up, and of the 33 lots on Re-

29 were taken up. Eighty pre-

Americans, 2 Swedes, s Finns, and
