For  More Production
Never Greater
Canada needs another
ism and production''
along- similar lines to that which
contributed to Canada's magnifi-
cient agricultural production in
1915- The need of Canada and
the need of Great Britain for im-
mensl3y greater supplies of grain
will be infinitely greater next fall
than at any time since the war began.
All the "Patriotism and Productions' campaigning in the world
will not improve the weather conditions which are often responsible
fot small crops, but it can bring
about a greater output of agricultural products than would be available for entente and home demand
if no such organized effort to stimulate production were made.
The acreage planted with grain
and other essential foodstuffs in
Canada next spring should exceed
all records. It should be limited
only by the acreage of land available and the ability of the labor at
hand to seed and cultivate it.
It has been estimated that the
government at Ottawa has under
consideration a course of action
which will assist toward the attainment of the desired end. The 1914-
15 campaign was capably and effectively conducted and the same
men cau produce good results in
1916-17. If the government finds
it necessary to spond two or three
hundred thousand dollars in order
to give the necessary direct as well
as indirect stimulus to production,
it will be money well spent in the
interests of the Empire and the Dominion.    (Nelson Daily News J

He wauled, as he had said, to turn
over a new leal, and this he could
hardly do while so much plunder remained iu his hands.
In the meantime there was lhe fear

trouble liiiii. The Welshman was a
vindictive and mean lillle rascal at
the besl of times, and his leinpcr
would not be improved by the failure of his companion to obtain possession  of  the stones.
These considerations made Paul
moody, and some among lhc house
party were not long in discovering
lhat there was a conspicuous change
in him.
Also il was noticeable that Lady
Ursula's frank happiness was shadowed by some vague cloud.
Hugo noted these fads to Lndy
Emmeline, who had grown somc-
whal distant to her brother-in-law,
following the lead set by Lord Last-
Of course tllis attitude of her brother and sisler was observed by Lady
Ursula, and formed a new trial lor
her grnile patience.

visit of Brady Gane, and before Paul
had found a solution of hi- many
difficulties, thai Hugo, strolling out
iulo llie grounds, and coming, by accident of course, (ace lo face with
I.ady I'minclinc as she was feeding
lhc golden pheasants in thc aviary by
the rose garden, made S0II1C comment  upon  Paul's morosencss.
"Hc used to bc such n lively fellow," said Hugo. "Bul this marriage
of his seems to have spoill him altogether."
"Vou seem lo forget thai he's married my sisler, said Lady l-'.nimel-
ine  with  some  indignation.
"No, I don't. On the contrary, I
was going to say thai marriage has
spoilt her, too. Matrimony is responsible for having ruined two lives," he
added pensively.
"What nonsense!" cried lhc girl.
"If Paul Payne is spoilt it isn't by his
marriage. As to my sister���well, I'm
very sorry she fell in love with him."
"Indeed I don't srr why \ou
should say that," said Hugo, standing
up  for  the   friend   for  whose  intro
duction to lhe rail's family hr Lit
himself lo hr responsible "She appears lo hr very fond of Payne,"
"She's :i great deal loo loud of
him," said   I.ady  Emmeline sharply.
"Don'l you think lhal, if ur musl
have thi- absurd and ruinous institution railed marriage, it's belter i'or
lhc contracting parlies lo have some
attraction for each other?" demanded
Hugo judicially.
"I Mi,   I   suppose so."

dcii and suspicious demtirciicss.
He seemed ratlin- disconcerted,
"Don't 1? Now I really thought
I did. I'm always againsl it, vou
know, while you .-laud up for it."
"I used to, perhaps," broke in Lady
Emmeline, "Bul I've changed my

of its effects upon my sister's spirits,
I'm quite ready to agree wilh you

Hugo was scandalized,
"I never -aid that," objected Hugo,
"I lidn'l yon/   \V< II, ii docsn'l mal

"Whal letter arc you expecting?"
demanded Hugo wiih sudden anxiety.
Bill she  would nol  tell him.
"Oh, it's ii"i so very important,"
she said, growing demure again,
"Lin expecting a, letter, loo," cried
Hugo, in a vicious lour, "\ cry important, mine i*. Let's go and waylay him."
Bui the postman had no letters
for either oi them. There was ihe
usual batch for lhe head of lhe house,

Hugo was disgusted when she look
this excuse for going into lhe house;
she had got inlo a disagreeable habit
of cutting short the interviews with
him which he spent'most of his lime
in contriving, and Hugo was beginning to think lhal he disliked her.
But in lhis lie was wrong.
Lady Emmeline delivered ihe missive to Paul, who was w riling letters
in lhc study. Hc knew the handwriting, which was round, clear and good,
the modern free school baud, lie recognized it as lhal of Brady Gane,
and opened the Idler with apprehension, which proved lo be well founded.
Gane informed him lhal he and
Evans were being "shadowed," lhat
Kvans had turned "nasty," and thai
Paul had better "look out." Oil lhc
whole, the letter was not ill-natured,

impatience thai "Syd" had not yel

Fowls    Need    Plenty    of    Sunshine

It seems superfluous to say lhal
the poultry-house should face ihe
south so lhal as much sunshine as
possible may be admitted through illc 1
windows. The fowls need all lhc|
sunshine llicy can gel during the winter months. The windows should be

Where single windows are used, il is
a good plan lo have a blanket so arranged (hal it can he let down over

not too much glass in lhc fronl of
the house, unless the roosts arc partitioned off or otherwise protected.
An ordinary sized window such as is
used in dwelling-houses is plenty
large enough for a house ten by fifteen feet, and should bc placed
lengthwise with the floor.

Standard Type in Stables
Modern efficiency is rapidly evolving a standard type ol barn and stable. This barn is about thirty-six feet
wide, and as long as may be necessary to accommodate the number of
cattle kept on the farm. This provides for two rows of catlle and gives
the owner an opportunity lo regulate
the inside furnishings properly and to
instal feed and manure carriers, and
lo use milking machines. The manufacturers of the inside furnishings
for dairy stables have standardized
their stalls, stanchions and mangers
to conform lo these measurements,
In building a new barn or remodelling an old barn it is always better
to consult an expert and have definite
plans lo follow while the work is being done.���Successful Panning,

What Strict Accountability Means
President Wilson's strong pica lo

that he "has kept bis country oul of

kept most of Germany out of the war

kept lhc Germans oul of it. Nor has
ibe President of tho United Siaics
kept Americans oul of the war. Ovcr
a hundred of them were killed when
the Lusitania was torpedoed without
warning, many more were blown lo
pieces on their own soil, and so far

gi\ '.��� any go .'I reasons.
Al 1, And rt n's reason for not
giving n franchise wus that after a
franchise would be granted the
question of purchase would be
dropped and nothing would be done
'riicCoiiipa.iv','; repp, to this was
that that rested entirely with the
council whether they cared to exercise the privilege of lite purchase
Aid llm ford's reason for not
granting a franchise was that the
time was too short for the company
and council to come to an agreement on the terms of same before
tbe expiration of the present couu-j
cil's term of office, The company's
reply to Ihis was that they were
ready to take up the matter at once.
and that there was no doubt whatever but that it could be done before their term of office expired.
Aid. McKen/.ie's  reason  for not
granting a franchise was that if the
council granted u franchise to the
company that they then would have
a 1 the privileges contained therein
and that would settle the matter
The Company,s reply to this was
that immediately the city availed
themselves ol tbe purcbae clause
-nd purchased the plant the franchise would be automatically cancelled nnd be of no value,
Alderman Dunham's reason for
not grouting the franchise was that
he bad made up bis mind he would
not do so,
Aid. Brown's reason was tiie
���Ud, Astou's reason was that be
believed only in Municipal Owner,
ship nii'l he could see no reason for
grunting a franchise previous to the
purchase of the plant.
The Company's reason for wanting ihe franchise bsfoie thej made
public the prices they pay for power, is merely to protect themselves
iu case the bylaw to purchase the
plant is not approved by the ratepayers, and il is hard to see what
objection there could be made to
this if the City's intentions to buy
are good.
The Aldermen unanimously agreed that the electric light lias been
a benefit to the City and they did
not want to see it removed, nevertheless llicy Have served notice on
the Company to ren ove their equip i
ment within HJ days.
It was also slated by the Council
that the principal objection to the
proposed franchise submitted by
iii in to the Company was the first
clause which demanded the signatures of the Wellington Colliery
Com pail V and also the Canadian
Collieries (Duusmuir) Limited, lo

lo the signature of the Courtenay

The latter may be lorgiveu for

But will our producers take the obvious step indicated by this year's
high prices, which are much higher
than those of 1915, which in turn
were higher than  those  of 1914!
That is, to put under cultivation

Expansion of B.C. Telephone
This year the British Columbia Telephone Company has
spent a very large amount of money in making improvements
to its system in various parts of the province. This supplements work that was done last year, the policy of the company
being to keep its equipment up to date and to anticipate the
demands of the public in the matter of ssrvice. Never has
its system been in better shape.
Achievemente of the B, C Telephone Co. are an earnest
of future accomplishments, to provide a more comprehensive
as well as more perfect telephone service.

The Germans nre now deoortiug
-the Belgians and scattering th.ui
throughout the German empire
Just as of old tlle Jews were tin own
'broadcast iu the days of their captivity. The reasons for this inhumane action are not difficult to
explain, and may lie briefly summarized, first of all; Belgium resisted Germany in 1914. and by d<
laying the Hun* advance, enabled
ifche Allies better withstand the oncoming hordes; for this reason.
Belgium must drink to the dregs
of her cup of suffering. Secondly
���Belgium lias a line, free and national spirit that refuses to lie crushed,
a spirit thai the Germans never
did possess, and never will,
Thirdly. Germany needs labour
to release men for military ssrvice,
fourthly, Germany fears the success of tiie Allies in breaking
through theSoiuute defences, wliicli
would result in a falling back of
the German lines in Prance, Flanders and Belgium, and which would
encourage the Belgians to t\>e up
-ipainst their oppressors. Also, as
Belgian territory was regained and
Belgian men were freed, they would
flock to join their own army, for
these reasons, and possibly there
are others, Qerinmiy is uprooting
men, wotlleh, and children for the

recently a number of Victoria merchants found it advisable to visit

Very Little is known by the People of the Successes of the Allies
On the West Front, and if Real Facts were Revealed, they
Would Shake Foundations ol the Teutonic Empire
In "An American's Repori of Ten
Months iu Germany," D. T. C'urtin,
of Boston, Mass., writes as follows:
Early in "vugrusl last I was in Ber*
lin. The British-French offensive
which had begun on July 1, outwardly appeared to attract little notice in
Germany. Even in lhc highest military quarters il was considered Biit-
ain's linal bluff. The, great maps in
the shop windows of every street
allowed no change, and still show no
change worth noticing. "The maps

line hoi evening iu Berlin I mel a
young officer whom I had known ou
a previous visit. I noticed he was ill
ami out of soils, lie lold mc he had
been unexpectedly called to his regiment on the western front. "Uow is
lhat?" I said, He made thai curious
indescribable German gesture which
shows discontent and dissatisfaction,
"These English," he said, "are putting '-verv man they have gol inlo a
final ridiculous attempt lo make us
lislen lo peace lei in*;. M\ have war,
rut short this evening." W'r had a
glass ol beer. "You haw- been io
Kngland. haven'l vou?" he inquired.
I told him I had been there hist war.
"I'hey seem to have more soldiers
than we thought," he said. "Thev
seem lo be learning the business. Mv
battalion has suffered terribly."
The next day Ihere were oilier
rumors in Berlin, rumors unknown
to the masses. It was suggest ed to
mc by a friend that if I wanted lo
learn the truth 1 should go to Potsdam and scc the arrival of the wounded of the famous Prussian Guard,
who had had a terrible experience al
the hands of thc English in Contal-
tnaison on July 10. lie drew me
aside and told mc that the state of
things on the Sommc if known
throughout Germany would effectively destroy thc pretension of the annexationist party, who believed lhat
Germany had won the war and would
bold Belgium, ihc conquered portion
of France and Poland. He told me
to go out to Potsdam with caution
and warned tne that I would have the
utmost difficulty in getting anywhere
near the artillery signs at lite railway
1 asked another extremely well-informed friend if anything particular
was happening in the war, and told
bint 1 thought of going to Potsdam.
He said: "What for? There is nothing seen there���the same old drill
ing and drilling." Po well arc secrets
kept in Germany.
However, 1 wenl, and what I saw
in Potsdam would, if known lo the
German people, shake thc very foundation of thc empire. Thc hypnotic
effcel of the German newspapers is
not apprehended in Great Britain.
Those newspapers .arc all directed
from the foreign office, which can
manipulate the thoughts of these docile people and turn their attention to
a particular part of the war with the
same celerity as thc operator of a
searchlight can direct lhe beam to
any part of the sky. Kor the moment
the whole German nation looks at the
beam, nothing else.     When people in
England ask, "Arcn'l thev beginning

Substitute Tor Rubber
Australian   Chemist   Discovers   Compound to Replace Regular
A question asked in lhe legislative
assembly ol V'icloria aboul steps lo
prevent a certain valuable Australian
invention from falling inlo the hands
of the "lubber riiitf" have directed attention lo a very interesting discovery. Mr. John Flint, Kiishenller's
Bay, near Sydney, has, like others
all oyer the world, been experimenting for years with a view to discovering a substitute for rubber. lie
claims lo have solved lhe problem.
His compound, which has been patented wherever possible, is said to
have been partly the resull of an accident. He had been working for
years upon a  certain  formula.
In making up another formula he
made a mistake, and lhe result exceeded the expectations which lie
cherished all along. To pui his discovery to a severe lest, he made a
motorcar lyre, one-half ol which was
rubber and lhe other half of his composition. The lyre has been used
for four mouths, has travelled 1,500
miles and is slill'running.
Mr. Flint admits thai as regards
actual wear his compound shows
slightly more depreciation than the
rubber, but it is doubtful whether an
ordinary observer would notice it.
Since then, however, he has improved
his compound, and its possibilities as
a rival to rubber are plainly suggested by thc fact that it can be made al
a cost of 10 lo 12 cents a pound. Il
is claimed foi Ihe new material that
it will serve all the purposes for
which rubber is used; lhal it will not
ignite; and thai when healed it will
not melt,

P. L. ANDERTON, Agent, Courtenay
To the Ratepayers of the City  of  Courtenay.
Far be it from any intention on my
part to throw cold water, or cover with a
damp pall, any suggestion or scheme
which contains anything that might be
for the benefit of the Dominion at large
or this Virgin City in particular; but
when a sheet of misleading figures similar to that recently received by me
through the Agency of the Dominion
Hail Service, under cover of a letter,
signed by one who at one time was considered a fit person to hold Aldermanic
honors in our midst, conies into my hands
I can only come to on: or two conclusions. The first, that it is the perpetration of a brazen falsehood intended to
mislead me into supporting some unwise
scheme and thereby being a willing,
though foolish party, to the strangling of
this city with a nether stone about its
neck from which it could never escape,
such a piece of impertinent effrontery
being an insult to the intelligenge of
every man to whom it was addressed. 1
will do the writer of the letter wliicli ac
companied the figures in question more
honor than to suggest that he was guilty
of any such wilfully mischevious intent
hut in acquitting him of the intention of
any evil can only come to the second
of the two conclusions which forced them-
selves upon my mind, Out of kindness
of heart I therefore feel constrained to
liken him to a hair brained Rainbow
Chaser who sees far more in the shadow
than the substance.
In coming to this conclusion, fellow
ratepayers, do not be under any misapprehension that there is no harm in him
nor will there be if each and every one
keeps guard on against him and his
coterie. He is but the agent of others
whom I could not conscientiously acquit
of evil intent, but he is a willing tool
like the village idiot who sees no harm
iu bespattering windows with mud.
Drunkards are locked up: some lunatics
are put in the asylum, others who ought
to be roam at large.
What is all this about?
Well Gentlemen, have you read the
article under the diction of "The Proposed Courtenay Water Works System"
which is a misnomer in that it is not
only a misleading statement as to probable cost of installing a suitable and efficient water system in onr midst but
treats principally upon a scheme for
lighting the city also, the figures in relation to which are equally misleading.
But to quote from the statement itself
I will take first the item,
"Cost of water system complete as estimated by competent engineers
I wonder can Mr. defunct alderman
imagine that he cau really induce any
competent firm of engineers to enter into a contract under bond to complete the
work to the satisfaction of the City Council, to construct suitable water system
with dam at Brown's River, guaranteed
to last a given number of years, lay the
mains to the city, purchase rights of-way
through intervening properties, ley laterals, erect hydrants and leave everything in readiness at all points to connect with individual consumers for this
sum, I very much doubt if he can for
this, plus another {20,000.00,
Any incompetent engineer may undertake to construct it for a given sum on a
percentage basis but it will be up to the
city to find further funds to complete It
when the given sum is expended.
Contractors who undertake this kind
of work have, as a rule, spent many
years in learning their business, they are
shrewder than Mr, Alderman, notwithstanding that he acquired wealth more
easily than do they and before they
would do so much as contemplate the
proposition they would waut some surety
that money was forthcoming.
Cost of Electric Light, Heat and Power
System as estimated $10,000.00
While these figures might be suitable
to the purpose, were the writer of the
article setting a mathematical calculation
to a boy student in a junior grade, it
will be found entirety inadequate for the
purpose intended, Having some data at
my disposal I am justified in saying that
twice that sum would not allow any surplus in finishing a suitable system in
When I say suitable system, I do so
guardedly, as I am aware that for the
sum of $10,000,00 some kind of a system
whereby light could be sold to consumers might be established; but while some
people are content to live in a woodshed
others preler to live in a house, ao if we
are going to have our own system of
electric light let us have one we can depend upon at all times with a minimum
annual outlay for maintenance, not one
that will be a nuisance through cheapness.
My estimate for these two services,
aud I feel I am as qualified to give one
as a good many, is at least $70,000.00.
My esteemed and atheletic friend in his
desire to find the nugget tied to the end
of the rainbow has been prevailed upon
to lend his name to the suggestion of
$40,000.00, though he wisely makes
provision lor contingencies, amounting
to $5,000.00 more. Figuring conserve
tlvely tlie least we can handle these
propositions, with any hopetul certainty,
is $70,000.00.
The author of the diction under discussion says that because we are free8
from debt ns a city we are a first clas-,
security. The situation to my mind i0
comparable to that of the artisan wh
has hitherto been able to get to and from
his place of business by street car, which
not only being satisfactory wai within
his means, No doubt an automobile-
I would be a boon to him and enable him
| so lake lhe family out at times, but il
his wages are limited to street car ca-
paclty it would not only be unwise but
foolish u> buy an automobile on the hire

his lite but gniti g to find the monthly

Such floundering in artificial figures
makes me think there is nothing genuine
in Courtenay but the complexion of the
ladies. Even these our unchivalroua
bachelor friend would beguile, but let
him beware, for our women now have
the vote, and while I must plead guilt)
to not having aided them in getting it,
when I think of the eld women who always had it I rejoice to think it has been
extended to them.
