How Concrete
Work Was Made
Easy For You
NTIL a few yean ago fanners considered concrete a rather
mysterious materia), that could be used successfully only by
experts. They knew that upon the quality of the cement
depended much of the success of concrete work. They had no
means of testing cement, such as big contractors employ, and so could
not be sure of its quality.
Yet the farmer needed concrete. i
I le was kept from using this best and most economical of materials by
1. Lack of knowledge of how lo mix and place concrete.
2. Lack of a brand of cement upon the quality of which he
could absolutely rely.

Willie, aged five, .va3 one day sent

This Label it ytur assurance *f
tatisfacttry concrete wart
has supplied both these requirements.
We employed men to make a thorough investigation of the farmer's
requirements; to find out where and how he could use concrete with
profit to himself; to discover all problems he might come across and to
solve them. This investigation was expensive. But when it was
completed we had the material for our campaign to show the farmer
how and where to use concrete.'and we printed a book, "What the
Farmer Can do With Concrete," for free distribution. That book
makes every farmer who reads it a concrete expert, as far as his needs
are concerned. He finds that there is nothing mysterious about concrete���that a few simple rules supply aH the knowledge required.
At the same time we met lhe farmers' second objection���inability to
test the quality of cement -by producing cement of a quality that
does not need to be tested.

"Close    your    eyes!"    commanded

lost bis self control as he realized this
"Hazen," he cried, "bring me safely
to earth again and I'll consent to yonr
marrying my daughter."
Jules turned a flushed face to bis
nnd made an untelllglblo reply. Still
they fell toward the earth, while tbe
engine gave out that irresponsible
staccato click. All at once Hazen
leaned back In bis seat, touched a
lever and fumbled wltb some handles,
and immediately the aeroplane stayed
Its dizzying fall, the engine swung into
rhythmic beat, and they hung in the
air for a moment while the aviator
took his bearings. Then tbey went
Inward, perhaps a couple ot hundred
foot above the earth, until the banker recognized the familiar layout of the
aviation field below.
Slowly, gracefully, like a weary bird,
tbo machine glided toward tho field
nnd at last rested sufely on It. Katb-
erino Tatem ran toward tbem with
fluttering handkerchief.
As I.ysander Tatem stepped to the
ground, stiff and sore and quite fugged
by the excitement of the flight, he
turned a pale and angry face toward
Jules Hazen.
"Of course I shall keep my word,
young man," he suld harshly. "But I
shall always have the greatest contempt for your methods!" and he
strode toward his daughter, who was
quick to observe (lie strained relations
between tbem.
The appearance of tbe Tatem motorcar at that Instant made the leave taking a rentier easily concluded, and soon
Kntherlne and ber father were ou tbe
way home.
"You haven't said anything about
tbo flight, father," said tbe girl after
awhile. "You were gone so long I was
afraid that something had happened."
I.ysandcr Tatem swallowed a lump

him and was silent.

unusually benevolent as be arose t<i

was grim and uncompromising.
"I've been expecting you, Ml*. Hazen," said the banker.
Jules lifted bis dark eyebrows. "I
was afraid yon were laboring under a
delusion, Mr. Tatem," be said gravely,
"and I called to set your mind at rest.

Use of Commercial Fertilizers Discussed Far and Against.
Mr. Fiillerton, who, with his wife, Is
the "bead und front" of tbo Long Island experiment farms, discourses as
follows on the use, or, rather, abuse, ot
commercial fertilizers. In answer to
tbe question, "Aren't you ever going to

"Bless your souls, yes. Didn't I use

"The craze for chemical fertilizer hns
gone too far. Thero are places where

fertilizing Is 'lazy man's way.' He

Fumigation a Good Way of Getting Rid
of Henhouse Pests.
Fumigation is a means of reaching
germs and Insect life iu the air of the
room and In tbo cracks and crannies
of the woodwork, says tbe American
Cultivator. Tbe house or room should
be tightly closed aud all fowls excluded during fumigation.
A simple method Is to burn the sulphur cnndlar, now sold at stores dealing in poultry' supplies. The fumes ot
brimstone may also be produced by
burning in n metallic basin (sucb ns
nu old iron kettle) a number of rags
previously soaked In melted sulphur.
Sulphur may be mixed with a little
alcohol or kerosene oil and burned, or
It may be sprinkled upon live coals
placed In a chafing dish. The house
or room should bo kept closed for several hours and then opened as thoroughly as possible to allow tbe wlud
to drive out any remaining truce of
poisonous gas.
Iu fumigating by burning substances

They Have Little Hair and Eat Butler

Tbo greatest peculiarity of the Turkoman breed of horses Is their htilr-

It   Is  by   Success  That  They   Attain
Prestige and Power.
As soon as u certain number of living
beings are gathered together, whether
they bo animals or men. they place
themselves Instinctively under the authority of n chief.
As enthusiasm becomes inflamed It
happens most often that the then load
er ts be who started as one of tbe led.
He has himself been hypnotized by
tho iden whose apostlo he has slnco
become. It has taken possession ot
him to such a degree tbut everything
utitslde It vanishes, and every contrary
opinion appears to blm an error or u
superstition, lu time by affirmation,
repetition and contagion great power
ls given to bis ideas, and be acquires
lhat mysterious force known as prestige. Every successful man, every
Idea that forces itself into recognition,
ceases ipso f��-'to to be called tu question.
The proof thnt success is one of Ibe
principal stooping stoues to prestige is
that the disappearance of one Is almost always followed by the disappearance of the other. The hero whom
the crowd acclaimed yesterday Is Insulted today should he be overtaken
by failure. The reaction indeed will

Verdi as a Politician.
The iiiiiuu of Verdi, we are told, was
n polltieul and patriotic symbol. He
belonged to the Italian Nationalist
party, and his name was scribbled on
the walls of Italian towns wblcb were
under Austrian rule. Tbis honor, bow-
ever, ns Is carefully explained, was not
paid to Verdi himself, as bis name happened by accident to be formed by the
initial letters of "Victor F.mmanuel
Uoi (V Italic" with whlcb inscription
Italian patriots often cover their walls.
Verdi was a politician. He was elected
deputy, and subsequently Emmanuel

that tbe maestro was In the bablt of

delicious that they ought to form a
part ot every sandwich repast. They
satisfy a natural craving for sweet?
and are more wholesome and more
easily made than cakes or candies.
Dates can be made Into many savory
pastes for sandwich filling. Make the
foundation by stoning the dates aul

A daring hold up ��� occured ou
Friday afternoon last when two
foreigners held up two young bank
clerks named Rowe and Buchanan,
while returning from Union Bay to.
Cumberland. They secured about
52600. Policemen have been on
the trail since but as yet bave failed
to capture them. They paid a
visit to one of the camps south of
Union B.iy aud forced the Chinese
cook to give then food, for wlich
they gave him a pde of small silver
which the police think is a part of
the stolen money.
Dr. MePhee, of Nanaimo met
with a somewhat serious accident
last Friday night when his automobile overturned wnen he struck
some fresh jravel while going'to
see a patient. He lit' on his face,
and plowed ilong lie ground for
several feet, with the result that he
was more or less cut and scratched,
tlie most serious being a gash above
his eye, which had to be stitched
together. He was taken to the
hospital, where he will be confined
for a few days yet. The auto
caught fire aud was totally destroyed. ISO

Board of Trade Meeting
On Thursday afternoon last h
well attended meeting of the
Board of Trade was held. A number of communications were read
from different boards of trade.
Most of whom did not see their
way clear to endorse this Board's
recommendation that Asiatics
should not hold land in this province. The Committees appointed
re-dredging the river and Indian
reserve  reported progress.
A letter from the post office inspector re daily mail service was
read, and the matter will be taken
up with other local associations.
Applications for membership
were   received   from six   citizens,
which will bring the total membership up to about 55
The Secretary will be empowered to charge a rental for use of the
Board rooms.
He was also instructed to secure
a lease for 1 year from Mr. Fechner.
It was also decided to favour the
formation of a Centrl Board. Composed of representatives of all tlie
Boards   of Trade on the Island.
A committee was appointed to
endeavour to have the road from
Little River as speedily as possible.
The Board also decided to issue
a description pamphlet shortlv.
A motion was carried that the
Board make application to the local
government for a reserve to be
placed on Brown's river for water
for the use of Courtenay.
Post Office for Courtenay
A meeting was called on Thursday evening to discuss buying a site
for the new post office building for
which Mr. Clements our member
has had placed in the estimates the
sum of $5000. On motion Dr.
Millard was appointed chairman
and F. D. Cameron secretary. After
the chairman had briefly explained
why the meeting was called. The
Secretary read the correspondance
that had been received from the
member in connection with the new
buildings here, aud which was then
laid on the table for discussion.
After considerable talk as to
where would be the best site for
the building, which the citizens are
expected to donate, R. McCush's
corner was proposed, but the price
$2200 seemed prohibiting.
Mr. Sutton suggested the corner
opposite the creamery. Mr. Shannon, the corner back of the Builders'
Supply Co. Dr. Millard's corner
was suggested, and the Doctor said
that if the government would put
a good building on the corner they
could have it at a very low figure.
The lot which Mr. Cudmore has
sold to the Japanese was suggested,
but as it is only 60 x to feet it was
thought to be too small.
As it seemed impossible to agree
upon a site, a committee, composed
of Messrs. Shannon, Cameron,
Collins, and the president, were
appointed to see what suitable lots
were available, and the price of
same, and to report at next meeting. In the meantime Mr. Johnston told the meeting not to worry,
as he had the post-office in his vest
The next day it developed that
the Postoffice Inspector had been in
town the day before, and that Mr.
Lewis had been seen, and that he
had offered a site free, and that the
deed was then on the way to the
At the meeting held on Saturday
night, after a lot of discussion, three
lots were offered free of charge for
the site. Mr. Lloyd Dunham offered a choice of two lots on the Lake
Trail Road. Mr. McPhee offered
all the laud required, between the
school house and the Cumberland
road, but he was strongly of the
opinion that a five thousand dollar
building would be much too smalt
a building for the requirements of
Courtenay, but would give the land
for whatever building was put up.
Mr. Parez offered as much land
as was required up to 120 feet
square at the corner just south of
Dr. Millard's residence, this was
the largest, most valuable and most
central site offered, and had it been
generally fknswd the day before
that Mr. Perez would give a site
then, it is quite likely his offer
would have received more consideration, but as Mr. Dunham offered
a lot as soon as it became generally
known that a site was required, his
west end friends thought his offer
should be supported, and they turned out in numbers to do so with the
result lhat the vote stood 25 for
Dunham's site; 11 for McPhee's;
and 10 for Parez', and the secretary
was iustructed to write the authorities accordingly, and when an
engineer comes he will make a selection.

It is not shade alone that makes
it cooler under a tree in summer.
The coolness of the tree itself is to be

asked, "what good in this world
will Hebrew do you?" The old

had taken him for a trifle over forty
but now, on closer scrutiny, afler the
fatigue of a well-fought game, he felt
that to ndd twenty years to the sum
might not be wide of the mark. The
hair, what there was of it, was of
the sandy hue which grows grey and
then white almost unpercelved, by
graduation rather than change, a development of degree.
There was a long pause while Iliey
smoked. Muller had leant back in his
arm-chair with his eyes closed, enjoying tbe fragrance of ihe weed which
he smoked in a deep-bowled, carefully
colored meerschaum pipe. Murgatroyd was wondering how lead up
lo the subject which was absorbing
his thoughts. It was Muller who
first broke the silence.
I have studied yon English the
world over���in Africa; in America; on
the continent of Europe; In your own
country. He spoke with slow emphasis.
I hope your verdict is not altogether unsatisfactory?
I like you���some of you���very well.

Murgatroyd shifted his legs. He
was getting angry; yet lie did not,
want to be angry. It is nearly always bad policy; It was more than
had policy; it was more than bad policy at the present lime.
I thought it was only the Frenchman���not you Germans���who was
ready to call perfide Albion at the
slightest provocation, and when it was
ciuile safe to do so.
I am not a German; I have forgotten my nationality. I am a cosmopolitan. Iu Berlin I am a Prussian. In
Vienna an Austrian, in Bttda-Pesth a
Magyar, in Paris a Parisian, in St.
Petersburg a Russian, In New York
an American.
And in London? Murgatroyd was
eyeing him, as a gladiator of old
would have watched a competitor in
the arena.
In London���wiih a little laugh, 1
read the Pioneer. It is a liberal education. The Pioneer amuses me.
They know so much at the Pioneer���
and so little.
Murgatroyd had begun to Question
how much his host knew of himself. It
seemed a curious coincidence, if nothing more, that Muller had brought
ihe Pioneer into the conversation.
Muller went on in the sort of half-
soliloquy he affected���
No, 1 am never an Englishman. London is big enough for all the races,
and iliey seethe and seethe in its
midst. One day they will tear Its
great heart out���but that will not be
yet. But if the German ever does
land���then look at home, lie will
find plenty of allies, and all of them
mind you, trained sodiers.
England will be ready when the
time comes���if it ever does.
li will.
Murgatroyd took no police of the Interruption .
We shall never seek war. It Is
agalUBt our interests as well as our
insliiicis. All we ask is fair play
and our Just rights. There is iliis
Transalplan Question for instance, and
Murgatroyd shot a glance al  Muller.
The latter was re-lighting his nicer-1
schaum, apparently only half attending.      When  the pipe question  was
satisfactorily adjusted, he  turned  to
lhe other���the International one.
Yes, there Is the Transalplan matter; I have heard of it.

Kidney Pills, and Found Health and
Vomer, Ont. (Special)���"I am very
content, Dodd's Kidney Pills have
made me well." Those are the words
of Madame Eugene Perreault, a highly-respected lady of this place, and
mother of a large family. For twenty years she was a sufferer. But let
ber tell her own story.
"I was always tired and nervous,"
she states. ' I felt heavy and sleepy
after meals. My limbs were heavy
and I had a dragging sensation across
my loins. My skin Itched and burned
at night. 1 had a bitter laste in my
mouth especially in the morning. In
twenty years 1 hardly knew what it
was to have a well moment. Then I
commenced to use Dodd's Kidney
Pills.     Six boxes cured me".
Madame Perreault's symptoms were
those of kidney disease. They are
the symptoms of nine out of ten of
the nervous, rundown, pain-racked women of Canada. Madame Perreault
found a speedy and complete cure In
Dodd's Kidney Pills. They simply

well groomed, while the supper

Come,   let us seek the  Hill-god's
O, my Love make no delay,
Come, with you onlo can be miue
All the gladness of this day.
Come,  let us   seek the Hill-god's
By the aisles ot pine-woods dim,
There   lingering list   the chant divine,
Of Nature's opening hymn.
Come, let  us seek  the   Hill-god'��
*Yond    the   utmost   wind-bent
And let his living light to shine
On the dark hills of our souls.
Come, let us seek   the   Hill-god's
On the wide free moors above,
There let us driuk  the Hill-god's
To the pledge Eternal Love.
