MakesB Grant to Dependants
A grant of $4,000 to Lady McBride,
widow of the late Sir Richard McBride, Is provied for in a bill
brought down in the Legislature by
Premier Oliver. A like amount to
Hie children of tli<- late Premier
Brewster, lo he paid to the executors
of lhe estale, is also .provided for.
These sums will be paid out of the
Consolidated Revenue Fund of the
City Council
The City Council held a special ses.
sion on Tuesday evening to listen to
propositions for the Installation of a
water system for Courtenay. In a
letter Mr. John Thompson outlined a
system of a large well near the mill
dam, and the erection of a 12,000-gal-
Ion tank. This will give about a 12-
pound pressure in the Orchard. In
case of fire the water would be pumped directly into the main, and 150
pounds pressure secured. Another
scheme was to pipe water from
Urquhart's springs near the Half-way
House. Dan Kilpatrick offered to put
in a satisfactory syslem and bring the
water from his flume at Kirkwords
farm, or from the springs on the Collieries' properly adjoining his ranch.
The latter seemed to find the most
favor, as all are agreed that Ihe
Brown's River syslem will prove too
costly. H. Idiens favored a scheme
whereby a well could be dug alongside the river on the flats hack of his
place, a lank built on the top of the
hill and the water pumped up Into it.
This would supply practically the
wuole city with good water.
The Mayor said the time had come
when we must have water. If another fire occurred Courtenay might
not be built up again. The insurance
rates were high, and may be cancelled. He Invited the citizens present
lo make suppgestions.
Mr. Sinims -yas In favor of bringing In water by gravitation, and
thought Ihe springs from Urquhart's
would prove ample for many years.
Mr. Indlens snid if a permanent
supply could be got for $15,000 there
was no use of thinking about a temporary one.
Mr. Hoilgram was opposed to anything that would put the city into any
more debt.
Iu the event of any company undertaking to supply water a franchise
would havc to be granted by the city,
and the source of supply, etc., approved by the Government at
Mr. Iudiens said that the City of
Hirniln*riiam, where he was born,
piped their water for a distance of
100 miles���but they had good water.
City Clerk Haines stated that there
could he no objection to granting a
franchise to any company who would
Instal a system, providing the city
was properly protected.
Mr. Alex. Urquhart said tjiat it
seemed a pily we could not get water
without going so far for it. Courtenay
River water was of the best, and he
was quite in favor of Aid. Idien8'
Mrs. Campbell and Mrs. Piercy, who
were also in the audience, said they
both had to .carry water, and would
lie glad of any system that would be
of benefit.

French Strong for Boycott
Germany Cannot Live Without Permission of the Allies
French opinion ir- more and morc
inclined to emphasise the enormous
value to llic allies ot the economic
weapon against Germany. Nearly
every day llicrc is a call here for il
plain statement from the allies as to
tho manner in which the economic
boycott will bc used if Germany persists in prolonging the war.
Kdinnud Lttskitie, a well known
writer on economic-, remarks in
Liberie that the allies hold trump
cards of which no Ludctidorll or
Trotszlcy enn deprive  tin m.
"These," lie says, "arc the mastery
of ihc most important world markets and a monopoly of lho most
important raw materials. When the
German chancellor poses in the
Reichstag as lhe supreme dictator
of war and peace, the allies can reply llirougli the roicc of llieir authorities that although Germany
may bc master of Kcval and Riga,
the allies are the masters of lhe
"The Germans can pillage and
massacre withoul our permission,
but without that permission lltcj
cannot live. Germany must be given
to understand that a resumption of
normal economic relations depends
not only on her accepting tlie allies'
peace terms, but Oil the date when
she accepts  theni.
"So far as German exports arc
concerned, the allies ought lo prepare a boycotting system erf conditional duration. The Germans ought
to be told that if they agree to peace
within six mouths llieir products will
be excluded from the allies' markets
for live years only; if the war lasts
another year our boycott should continue ten years after the signature of
peace, and so forth. 11 would tints
be left to Germany herself lo decide
how long llic boycott on her trade
would last."

Now Raised to Veal Age
Livestock Branch States Policy on
Slaughtering of Young
The livestock branch of lhc department of agriculture has expressed the opinion lhat "nny action taken arbitrarily to prohibit the slaughter of calves or females or to limit
I lie market for Canadian cattle
through restrictions upon exports or
otherwise would be absolutely unwise." Under present conditions'the
farmer reaps a profit from the feeding of calves to veal age, while previous to lhe war such calves were
killed as sonn as born. Such prohibition as that proposed would,
therefore, cause a return of the prewar practice, resulting in a very considerable waste of food.

Nothing Like It
For Bronchitis
And Weak Throat
Cures    Without    Usui;;    Dings
Doctors now advocate an entirely
new method for treating broncnitis
and irritable throat, Stomach dosing
is no longer necessary.
The mosl approved treatment consists ol a heating vapor resembling
the pure air of the Adirondack^
This soothing vapor is full of
gcrin-dcstroying substances, and at
thc same lime is a powerful hcallnt"
agent. Ii is sent to the bronchial
uilies and lung? tlirougli a skillfully
devised inhaler thai can bc carried in
the vest pocket. Simplicity is thc
keynote of this splendid treatment.
CATARRHOZONE is the name
of this wonderful invention lhal is
daily curing chronic cases of weak
throat, bronchitis and catarrh. Every breath through thc inhaler is laden wilh soothing, healing .substances
that destroy all diseased conditions
in the breathing organs. It can't fail
to cure because il goes where llic
trouble really exist-, and doesn't attempt to cure an illness in the head
or throat by means of medicine taken into the stomach, Catarrhozone
is a direct, breathable, scientific cure.
Tliere is no sulTcrer from a grip-
py cold or any winter ill, that won't
find a cure in Catarrhozone, which
is employed by physicians, ministers,
lawyers and public men tlH*pughottt
many foreign lands. Large size lasts
two months and costs $1.00 and is
guaranteed; small size 50c, sample
size 25c, all storekeepers and druggists, or lhe Catarrhozone Co,

Steel Helmets
Number of Deaths Due to Wounds
in the Head Has Decreased
Thc plain steel liclinel worn by all
our Tommies is becoming quite familiar even to people in England. It
will surprise most people who have
seen these helmets to know that
there arc no fewer than sixty-four
distinct operations necessary in
turning out one of tlicni.
The first step is stamping out discs
from large sheets of sleel. A special
machine is used for this purpose, exerting a pressure of 150 tons, and
capable of culling oul 5,000 steel
discs a day.
Each disc is placed under a shaping machine, which presses the disc
inlo the form of a helmet with a
broad rim, Polishing and cutting machines remove all irregularities in
lhe helmet, after which it lias holes
punched in the crown, some for
ventilation purposes, others for fastening on the regimental crest. Each
helmet is cleaned and dipped in a
special mixture, which makes it a
dull, inconspicuous bluish-grey, A
lining and leather chin-straps are
then fastened on, and lhc helmet is
Since lire French army lias been
protected with the helmets the number of deaths due to wounds in the
head has decreased to a remarkable
The Art of Forgetting
Blot Out as Far as Possible All the
Disagreeables of Life
If you would increase your happiness and prolong your life, forget
your neighbor's faults. Forget the
slander you have heard. Forget the
temptations. Forget thc faultfindings, and give a little thought to the
cause which provoked it. Forget
the peculiarities of your friends, and
remember only the good point;
which made you fond of theni. For
get all personal quarrels or histories
you may have heard by accident,
and which, if repealed, would seem
a thousand times worse than they
are. Blot out as far as possible all
the disagreeables of life; tlicy will
come, but they will grow when you
remember theni, and the constant
thought of the acts of meanness, or,
worse still, malice, will only tend to
make you morc familiar with theni.
Obliterate everything disagreeable
from yesterday; start out witli a
clean sheet For today, and write, up
on it, for sweet memory's sake, only
those tilings which are lovely and
lovable.���Southern  Churchman,

The Sun Life of Canada's published statement of 1917 results, wliicli
appears in this issue, is in every
sense a satisfactory document. It
hows assurances issued and paid for
in cash during 1017 for a total of
over $47,800,000, the largest amount
of new business ever issued and paid
for by any Canadian life company in
any year. Assurances in force now
total net $.11,800,(100. Assets increased by over $7,000,000 to over
$90,000,000, tho largest assets ever attained by a Canadian company. Cash
income totalled over $19,288,000. Payments to policyholders exceeded $8,-
800,000, bringing lotal payments to
policyholders since organization lo
over $69,000,000.

To    Cure   Common   Ailments   the
Blood Must be Made Rich
and Red
Nearly all lhe common diseases
that afflict mankind arc caused by
bad l.lood-wcak, watery blood poisoned by impurities. Bad blood is the
cause of headaches and backaches,
lumbago and rheumatism, debility
and indigestion, neural-, ia, sciatica
and other nerve troubles. Tl is bad
blood that causes disfiguring skin
diseases like eczema, and salt rheum,
pimples and eruptions. The severity
of thc trouble indicates how impure
the blood is, and it goes always front
bad to worse unless steps arc
promptly taken to enrich and purify
the blood. There is no use. trying a
different medicine for each disease,
for tlicy all come through the one
trouble���bad blood. To cure any of
these troubles you must get right
down to lhc root of the trouble ill
the blood. That is just what Dr.
Williams' l'ink fills do. 'i'hey make
new, rich red blood. They simply
purify and enrich the blood, and the
disease disappears. That is why Dr.
Williams' Pink Pills have cured
thousands of cases after oilier medicines had failed. Here is proof of
the power of Dr. Williams' l'ink
Pills to cure. Mrs. M. Stills, who
resides near tlie town of Napance,
says: I cannot praise Dr. Williams'
Fink I'ills too highly. 1 was very
much run down iu health, suffered
from frequent spells of indigestion,
biliousness, and siek headache. 1
had an alniosl constant pain in unbend and my housework was a
.source of dread. In fact I felt so
miserable that life held but little enjoyment. I. was advised to try Dr.
Williams' Pink Pills, which 1 did,
and the result was simply marvellous, arttl can best be summed up by
saying that tlicy made inc feel like
,-. new woman, and fully restored my
health. I would advise every woman and girl who has poor blood, ot
is run down in health to give these
wonderful pills a trial. I am never
without then,  in  the house.
At the first sign lhat the blood is
out of order take 1 Ir, Williams' Pink
Pills, aud note the speedy improvement they make in the appetite,
hcallh and spirits. Ymi can get
these pills llirougli any medicine.

The Trouble is Not That the British Sailor is Alarmed, but Tha1

like tiie lost Atlantis il another war,
I wagetl more scientifically ami   inert
! diabolically ihan this on.-, i-r ever
allowed to occur, saitl John Masefield
in a.i address at Aeolian Hall. His
subject was "Thr War antl the Future." He lold of war incidents
"which havc cumc under my eyes or
have happened to friend:] of mine,"
and he touched oh the end of all
wars, which he earnestly believes
must result from this onc.
"If two great nations yours and
mine���would agree to end war, it
would bc done," he said.
His stories niaclc the war seem
near ami real, peopled h\ human beings. Incredibly neal was the self-
betrayal of one spy al Gallipoli, who
was unversed in the intricacies ol
English idiom, "ll was the day afler ihe landing, April 26," he said,
"and an Australian captain was up
thc hill at An/at-. And an Australian major came to Iiini and said,
'Don't let your men fire to their
front for tho next hali hour, because .
an Indian working party lias jusl
gone up antl might be hit.' And the
raptain thought lhis odd, as he had j
.reen no Indian w'orkiiig party. The
major had the number 2-1 on his I
shoulder strap, and thc captain |
thought this odd, as only eighteen
battalions, from 1 to 18, had landed,
And he said to the major, '1 say, are
you fair ilinkiim?' (which means, Hr.
Masefield translated, straight goods,
on the level). Antl the major snid,
'Yes, I'm Major Fairdinkum.' So
they shot him for a spy, and it seems
he had lakeu the number 13 from a
dead man and twisted il around,
which was unwise of him."
And Mr, Masefield told little incidents of everyday life and of the
nerve and verve and general gaycty
of the  men who light  the war.
"General Birdwood had charge of
the Australians," he said, "and the
men called him Hirtlie and worshipped him. He was a bright little man
and greatly loved. He was given to
talking to every one, and every man
on the peninsula believed that Birdie
knew liim hy name. One day he was
walking along the trenches and looking into the dugouts and chaffing
the men. It was very hot and there
was scarcely any water. And hc saw
a soldier washing in a cup as big as
a finger-bowl. And he said, 'Hullo,
having a good washtip? And the
man answered, 'Yes, general, ami 1

Hotly Protested by Socialists
The Berlin Socialist newspaper,
Vorwacrts reports a debate Jn the

had no intention of releasing the
older military classes. Hc criticised
the fact that in the landstrum men

that they be taken out of thc firing
In consequence of the arbitrary
procedure of officers regarding furloughs, added Herr Stiieeklcn, increasing numbers of soldiers had
taken their own furloughs and were
now undergoing imprisonment for
Herr Mueller-Meiningcn, the radical leader, said that 10,000 of the
older men were still in the firing
line. The pretext that there were no
reserves to replaee such men were
scouted by Herr Ryssel, a Socialist.
"It would only bc necessary," he.
remarked, "to request all the pan -
German braggarts, who thank God
thc war is not yet ended, to volunteer. The feeling at the front is not
enthusiastic, and this is not surprising in view of the treatment the
soldiers are getting."
Criticising the food of the soldiers,
Herr Ryssel declared there were
units in the army called "hunger
companies," and he remarked that a
furlough could be bought by subscribing to the war loan. Ho ended
by demanding the appointment of a
commission of inquiry io examine

Interest in the War by People of Germany is Maintained by
Occasional Spectacular Achievements in the Field, and
Crushing Defeat is the Only Way to Bring Peace
The greater the German success
on thc battlefield, said Arthur Henderson in a recent speech, thc more
remote was worltl peace. He accepts the view that tliere. can be no
peace iintij-pGcrinniiy abandons her
policy of conquest and military domination; successes, hy encouraging
the German people to believe in military piracy as a profitable business
undertaking, tend to postpone the.
time when this will be the view ��� of
the German people.
Mr. Hcii-lersoii, whose position Is
becoming more assured as the leader of allied Labor and Socialist forces in Great Britain, has clear ideas
of what is necessary to safe-guard
the world against a renewal o( a
World-wide war. He wants a league
of nations, thc complete democratization of the machinery of'government
in all counlries, limitation of ���armaments, antl the abandonment of all
plans of economic boysotting.
These are highly desirable ends;
and Mr. Henderson has a clear idea
how they can bc obtained. Thc democratic peoples of the worltl, he says,
can only sheathe the sword when
the German people are able to induce
"a change of mentality" in their
leaders. He assumes, no doubt correctly, that only from thc German
people can conic the impulses which
will break the power of the war
lords and fit Germany to belong to
the proposed league of nations; but
how arc the German people to bc
brought to this frame of mind? The
��� peace offensives carried on by Mr.
Wilson, Mr. Henderson and others
may help; but nothing but the act-
. uai demonstration by results lhat
war is a huge and criminal blunder
will complete their enlightenment.
There have been periods in this
war when the German people appeared to be on the eve of disillusionment; bill in each case they
were enabled to recover their faith
in the cflfcacy of the "German
sword" by some spectacular achievement in the field. The crushing of
Serbia in the fall of 1915; the overrunning of the larger part of Rou-
iiiania in 1910; and the Italian successes* in October, 1917, were all
carefully staged for the encouragement of civilian faitlr in the army;
and now there- comes this unresisted
advance into tlie heart of Russia
which has, for the moment at any
rate, renewed tht? original lust of
the German people for the. conquest
of the worltl by the sword.
Until they learn the truth of M-.
Henderson's statement that such military successes as arc within llieir
power, merely prolong the war and
postpone Indefinitely the peace which
they undoubtedly desire,    they    will
consent to the Prussian program of
rapine and piracy, They can only be
taught hy experience, which is a
slow prpecss. Tlicy will have lo be
convinced by the progress of events
that the high hopes based upon their
victories over the disorganized mobs
of Russia were illusory.
This implies the continued vigorous, unrelenting conduct of the war
���and this is the program favored
by Mr. Henderson, who speaks for
Dritisli Labor. Mr. Henderson's position is sounder than that of the
Martinis of Lansdowne, who is obviously prepared to yield something
to save the social order which means
so much to him and his class. The
one sure chance still, left for lhc
right ending of tliis war is in tlie
rallying of all the forces of Labor
throughout the allied world to the
cause with a determination to see it
through, It is becoming increasingly
certain that this support will bc
forthcoming in ample volume,���Manitoba Free Press.

shall be forthwith enrolled ln the

are warlike enough io engage In rioting, may well utilize their warlike
proclivities upon the enemies of the
Allies. It was also an excellent idea
to make the new enactment apply to
all persons of military age (20 to 25)
Instead of to the limited classes that
have ben called so far. The Prime
Minister's coup seems lo have proven even mot-e effective than the display of military force in restoring order. The bravos who engaged In rioting have no objection to killing and.

"We Cannot Achieve Victory Without Food."

"Ottawa  , x
" In these stern days it is inspiring to learn that Canada is tackling the
food problem with redoubled energy. The terrific pressure oh our
military front makes it all the more imperative that those behind the
line should strain every nerve to defeat the enemy's avowed object of
destroying the British Empire.
"Germany hoped first to starve the Old Country by the submarine
campaign and then to smash her land forces. She has failed to starve
us and she will fail to smash us but we "-cannot achieve victory without
food. There never was a time when it was more needed.
"The Canadian farmer and the Canadian farmhand now have the
opportunity to make an effective reply to the enemy's present
onslaughts by bending their undivided energies to the increased

have been formulated which, on the

Labor, will provide help needed for
City and town people who cannot
go on the farms are helping to feed
themselves by growing their own vegetables, so that the farmers may grow

"Whose opinion wns il that you
should supply the exact material yotl
had promised?" Featherstone usked.
"Well," snitl Foster, "Lawrence
said so first, but 1 think we both
meant to let them have thc best."  _
b'eatlierstonc's glance at his wife
indicated relief, but something In
Alice's face showed thai she had
known whal Foster's reply would be,
She had listened with keen inlerest,
and lie stopped, half amused and
half embarrassed. Perhaps he had
talketl too much, and while he meant
to do Lawrence justice, hc did not
want to play the part of the indomitable pioneer for the girl's benefit.
Moreover, he knew >he would detect
and despise him for any attempt to
do so, and as hc valued her gootl
opinion, it was not modesty alone
that letl him to make Lawrence the
hero of the piece.
"So you stuck to your bargain!"
Featherstone remarked. "Tell us
how yon carried it out."
Foster forgot himself and the others as he continued, for he had a
vivid memory of the struggle. He
took charge of the work in the
woods, while Lawrence tactfully
pressed for payment of outstanding
accounts, put off creditors; and somehow provided money (or wages. As
extra gangs had to he hired. Foster
owned that he did not know how the
thing was done. Hc cut a grade for
the skidway up the hill, slashing
tangled bush and blasting rocks,
worked in the snow by moonlight
long after his men stopped, and afterwards learned that Lawrence often
went without a meal when pay day
got near. But they hauled out the
logs and the lumber was delivered.
When he stopped, Featherstone
looked Up with some color in his
face.   .
"Thank you," he said. "It is a

you was well spent. I could have
expected nothing better of mv son.

Alice smiled. "Vou couldn't leave

"I honestly don't think I exaggerated."
"No," she agreed, "it sounded real,

The Dignity of Farming
Will Be Looked Up to as   One  of
the Princes of the Land
This war lias done one thing; it
has made farming one. of the most
dignified callings a man can engage
in. There was a time when many
looked on thc cultivator of the soil
as "a mere hayseed," not worthy of
being considered seriously in the
economics of the nation, but that
day has passed. Today everybody is
appealing lo the farmer to come to
the rescue of the nation by helping
to produce something to cat so that
we can win the war. The day is
not far distant when the "man who
makes two blades of grass grow
where only onc grew before" will bf
looked up to as one of the princes
of the land. ��� Montgomery, Ala

Destruction of Subs.
Parts of   Submarines    Included   in
Catch of Dutch Fishermen
Not only fish, but parts of German
submarines destroyed now frequently constitute the catch of Dutch fishermen when they haul up their nets
off the Dutch coast, according to H.
Venstra, a dairy expert from Holland.
"Floating parts of submarines are
raising havoc with the nets of our
fishermen," Mr. Venstra said. "In
many cases floatsam and jctsan*
have been submitted to coast guardsmen and officers of the Dutch navy
and were identified as belonging to
submarines that probably had been
destroyed by depth charges."
A Pill for Brain Workers.���The
man who works with his brains is
more liable to derangement of the

A Stupendous Decision
Women Can Become the Dominant
Political Power of the Future
Commenting on the granting of
the franchise to 6,000,t"l0h women in
the British Isles, the Edinburgh
Scotsman says: "It is a stupendous
decision, It assuredly would not
have been taken but for the demonstration of women's capabilities
which the war has brought. No one
four years ago foresaw how powerfully the fabric of our national lite
could be buttressed by women's
work. That clement is everywhere
today; it has disclosed reserves ot
national strength that imply permanent developments; its relation to
organized labor in its old form, i.s
one of thc problems of the reconstruction period." Woman, if she
asserts herself, can become the dominant political power of lhc future.

A Ford Car Takes the Place of
All These Things
WHEN you own a Ford you can do away with many
articles that are a source of continuous expense to
the man who still drives a horse. For instance, not
only your driving-horse and buggy, but the single harness,
blankets, whips, currycombs, brushes, horse-shoes,, pitch--
forks, feed-bins, etc.
In their place you have a speedy, dependable, dignified,
roomy Ford Car���complete in itself. It is vastly superior to
the narrow, cramped buggy that travels so slowly. And
when a Ford is standing idle it does not eat three meals a
day, and It requires no "looking after."
A Ford will save you time, trouble, and money. It la the
Utility car for the busy farmer and his family.
