Last year about this time we offered to rent a Sew K Z Sewing
machine' motor to anyone for a
very small sum per day.
To every dollar paid in rent for
the motor we gave one chance'in a
drawing which was to be held as
soon ns we had received the price
of the motor iu rents. There are
still a few chances left, and we
would strongly advise anyone who
has any sewing to do to uive this
proposal a thought,
Thc motor does all the labor of
sewing, leaving nothiug for j ou to
do but guide the material, and does
all this at a cost of about half a
cent an hour for current,

this year have a crop of fifty million

Mum Uc Treated Through the
Blood and the Poisonous
Acid Driven Out
The twinges and lorlures of rheumatism arc not due to cold, damp
weather as so many people suppose.
Rheumatism comes from poisonous
acid in lhc blood. This is a medical
truth that every rheumatic sufferer
should realize. Their is only one way
to cure, rheumatism*���it must be treated through lhe blood. All the lina-
mcnls and rubbing and so-called clcc-
trical treatment in lhc world will not
cure rheumatism, and the sufferer
who iries Ihem is not only war.ling
money, but is allowing the trouble lo
become more firmly rooted ill the syslem and harder to cure when lhc proper remedy is tried. Dr. Williams

Should Success Crown the Efforts of the Allies in Iheir Operations,
Serbia, Italy, Rumania, and Russia will Acquire much
Valuable Territory from the Enemy
Should ihe armies of lhc Allies,
now operating between the Italian
Irridenta aud Galicia. and from Car*
palllia to Salonika, be successful in
their aims, 11)0,0110 square miles will
eventually be subtracted from Austria-Hungary, This territory, sustained before llic war a population of 17,-
000,000, or jusl one-third of the total
population of the Dual Monarchy.
The geographical divisions by which
these parcels of Austrian and Hungarian propcrlj arc known are as 'ol-
The Tyrol (the southern half), the
coastlands (wiih Trieste), Dnlmatia
(wilh Iiii* islands of lhe Adriatic, lull
diminished by a thin paring left for
Serbia), are lo go to Italy. This liiiu

mouth of ihe Xarcnla River, Bosnia,
I h rzegovina nnd a portion of Sla-
vonin will (.ill to Scibia; Transylvania, Bukov ilia and llu: Banal of I c-
mesvar will go in Rumania, and < lal
ici.i will become Russian,
Italy will lake some 1,1,001) sipnirr
miles, Inuing a population of aboul
.',000,001). ni ihis population less
iii nn 800,000 are Italian and the major fraction is S!a\, Serb in Dalmatia
and lhc islands, Slovene nboul
Rumania will receive 36,000 square
miles, having a population of *l,800,-
000. Of this population a little more
than half, 2.450,000, is Rumanian, I,-
000,0110 is Magyar, 700,000 German
and 50,000 Slav '-- Serb in lhc Banat,
Russian in Bukovina.
Russia will get Galicia entire, having an area ol jusl over 30,000 square
miles and a population ol slightly
more than 8,000,000. Practically all
of lhis population, save for the lews,
is Slav, and 5,000,000 is Polish, Some
of lhe fairest bits oi the Alps, some
of llle best known places of tourism,
will fall to Italy's share.
In addition, in taking Trieste and
lhc coasiland down to the end of the
Istrian peninsula, she will get the
great modern city of Trieste, onc of
the first commercial ports of the Mediterranean basin, and Tola, the chief
naval station of Austria, Along the
Dalmatian coast she will acquire
other splendid harbors and such famous cities as Zara, Spalatro, Scbeni-
iii. Possession of Dalmatia and of the
islands of the Adriatic will give her
command of the Adriatic and she will
abolish lhc rivalry of Austria, even
ii Finnic remains to Hungary and
Austria and Hungary continue united.
Proportionately, Serbia's gains will
bc greater. Bosnia, Dalmatia, that
falls to her share, the portion of Sla-
vonia, have an area of 21,000 square
miles, materially morc than thai of
Serbia before the first Balkan war.
Acquiring them, Serbia will at hist
gain her window on the sea, denied
her through Austrian interference after her Balkan victories.    But Serbia
lias other hopes. Montenegro, also a
Serb hind, will unquestionably be
joined to Scibia, together with lhe
northern tip of Albania, containing
Scutari. All told, Serbia hopes and
expects to gain 30,000 square miles,
25,000 coining from Austria, and save
for a few Albanians aboul Scutari the
people of these regions arc all Serb
by race.
Even greater are. Rumanian ambitions, Before she entered the second
Balkan war, Rumania was a nation of
7,000,000, and her area was nearly 50,-
000 square miles, about that of England or ni New Vork Stale. The Balkan wnr gave her ,1.000 square miles
and 300,110(1 people lakeu from Bid
garla, If she gets her prize in lln'
Austrian campaign she will get ovi r
36,000 square miles and become a
kingdom with an area equal lo thai
of llm mainland of Italy. Her total
population will bc close lo 12,000,000,
and more |I'.m lull of the new citizens will bc Rumanian by race.
lu Transylvania, too, she will acquire the coal mines necessary lo he"
industrial  expansion.       Shaped     now
like a crescent moon, Rumania1 will
then become a solid block, no longer
threatened wilh bisection by any attack coining from Austria.
The real prize v.ill naturally fall to
Russia. Galicia is onc of the richest
agricultural lands in all Europe ami
ils oil well:- are unsurpassed on lhc
Continent,    By bringing her frontiers
| to the Carpathians  Russia will abol-
j ish the open frontier that has so long
weakened her position on    lhc   wrsi
I and has proved so disastrous in ihe
campaigns of the present war. Lcm-
bcrg, the capital of Galicia, is a city
of nearly 250,000, the fourth in lhe
Austrian Empire and onc of the great
I railroad centres of Europe. Sonic portion of Galicia Russia intends to add
to  her Polish kingdom,  probably all
I west of the San.
In doing this, Russia will restore
5,000,0110 Poles lo their old association
with Warsaw, and if there bc an
autonomous Poland, under Russian
protection, it will contain    at    least
116,000,000   oi the. 20,000,000 Poles, the
i balance    remaining   in    the   eastern
I lands oi Prussia.
|    Such, briefly,   is   the   partition   of
: Austria-Hungary.
ln London, Koine, Petrograd, Paris,
onc may scc, it is said,    maps    on
'which the partition of Austria-Hungary is already recorded ns au accomplished facl. Many of these maps
extend lhe limits of thc dismemberment far beyond those described. But
'the irreducible minimum is the divi*
I sion outlined, a division which subtracts 15,000,000 Poles, Rumanians,
Italians, Serbs, Ruthciiians, Slovenes,
from the dominion of the Magyar and
lhc German-Austrian, and in doing
this takes less than 2,000,000 Magyars and Germans.

At the Close of lhc  War  Ihere Will Be No Longer Any Doubt
But that the Skilled Aviators Developed by tbe War will
Utilize Aeroplanes in More Peaceful Pursuits
No more, thrilling page in the romance of war has yet been written
than that which records tire mastery
of thc air by heavicr-lhan-air machines. The slory lold in The Globe by
Frederick Palmer smacks of tlie talcs
oi Jules Verne arid 11. G. Weils,
when as yel man was limited in his
means of locomotion to the surface
oi the earth and the surface of the
sea. Ten years ago aviation was in its
experimental slagc. 'lln* name bad
not yet found ils way into llm standard dictionaries and encyclopaedias.
Practical men shoo', their heads and
dismissed the idea oi aerial flight as
a passing rrazc lhal would run ils
course and die a natural death, lighl
years ago the improvements effected
enabled the aviator lo attain a speed
of thirty-nine miles an hour for a distance of ninety-five mile*, at a maximum altitude of 400 feet. Frederick
Palmer, in this third year of war, tells
of machines with a speed of 165 miles
an hour, flying at an altitude of 10,000
feci, and capable oi carrying heavy-
loads in addition lo thc pilot and observer. Steadily improving in speed,
endurance and climbing powers, lhe
war has brought the heavicr-lhan-air
machine to a point oi efficiency nol
dreamt of ten years ago, When peace
comes there is no longer any doubt
lhat aerial navigation will be a strong
competitor ou land and across narrow
seas and lakes for the traffic lhal i*
now satisfied to travel a! a maximum
speed of sixty miles au hour on laud
and aboul thirty mile- an hour i u
water. 'I'he spectacle m' an aviator,
who before the war was unversed in
aerial locomotion, lakmg aeroplanes
across from England to France for
delivery al thc front, and ghding
through thc air at lhc rate of 165
miles an hour, shows the tremendous
possibilities that arc opened up by the
developments in aviation.
,    The romance of aviation is bound
inii with two oilier romantic pages in
the history of locomotion. The invention of the pneumatic tire for bi-
; cycles  by  Dunlop,  and  thc  birth  of
;thc motor car, with its internal com-
buslion engine, paved the way for the
'coming of the aeroplane, For without lhc pneumatic lire the motor car
.would not have made such strides in
I popularity, and without the motor
gasoline engine the heavicr-lhan-air
machine    would have been stillborn.
. England was slow to enter thc field
of aviation until the motor had reached a stage that offered every prospect of success. With characteristic
energy Britain set about adapting and
(improving the ideas oi French and
American engineers and aeroplane
builders as soon as the machines had
passed thc experimental stage. This
war has given Britain the control oi
the air. a victory due to the splendid
qualities oi the British mechanic no
less than to thc dash and bravery ot

Throughout the big naval battle

II011. Sterol iry.
Deai sir, -Since lhe inception of the
Canadian Patriotic Fund we have received from Courtenav the .sum of $333,69*
nml advanced $4,023.30
Now, llie fundamental principle on.
which our work is conducted is iu effect
that each community throughout Canada shall raise what it can ami then draw
whai is required for proven needs in
connection wiili tlie care of soldier's!
wives and dependents In their community. Ymi will see however, lhat the
right to draw is contingent up in au effort oeiug made to carry the common
load No community thai shirks this
obligation can rightfully claim a share in
the common purse. It Is not the amounts subscribed, bul the spirit In which
the wuri. is supported that counts, Now
ivi feel i ml your community has nol ns
i rc di n thorough canvass nud has
nol placed the mailer belore yum
citizens ii! such ii way as to secure the
maximum ol support, We feel lhal you
mid do this il you nre lo cuutiliue lo
draw as heretofore. When 11 dlslrlcl
fails '" appreciate the Patriotic I'und,
lhe only conclusion we enn  arrive lil is"
ihai iin- people ui   iii il  district il 1
regard ihe fund ns necessary, lhal they
consider thnl lhe soldiers' wives living
in lhal community are sulTicieully provided Im hy separation allowance nml
assigned pay. II lhe scale of living in
your coiniminit) is so much lowei thiili
ihai i-l . ah. K' 111 llritish Columbia Ihnl
no suppliniciitnr' issistauee is required,
naturally iin' I'alriolic Fund would ex
il from lhe obligation
your lalllllies, 'I'he only wily
iblic si aliment in your coin-'
can give expression lo lhe belicl
��� fuml is needed i.. in having your
help by raising an adequate amount. The only conclusion in your case
Ihen. that we em arrive at is lhat lhc
amounts we are now paving throughout
your district are lou high, hence, hereafter, instead of paying .688 pei month
we shall set aside lor Courteuay *350,
Vonr coininillee will hnve to revise lhe
estimates ol the soldiers' wives so as lo
hring them down lo the level of living
which the people uf your district regard
to he adequate. We- admit that ihere
may be some strenuous objection 011 the
part of your soldiers' families hui th
will have lo hold your coiuillitt
your citizens responsible lor reductions
made. The only Interpretation we can
attach to your inactivity in raising money
must be that the people of your community do not think that the expenditure
of this money is necessary, Vou will
kindly therefore, rearrange your distribution so as to meet with the sum we
will hereafter appropriate for the more
necessitous cases, and reduce the general
scale until it is in accordance with local
public opinion,
Thanking you in anticipation, I remain, vours-trulv,
Sec. Provincial Branch
I We are at a loss to know by whose
orders Mr. Nation lint taken this act.on.
The soldiers who have gone from this
district are* lighting just as much for the
rest of Canada and the l'tupire as for
those of us who are left here, and perhaps nioreso. In this district every nuui
is bled while for patriotic purposes. In
other communities the citizens have
some ways ol making money, either by
war orders or work. Here we have
none, and have to pay, pay, nay for necessities. We have also reason to believe that tlie sum Ur Nation mentions
as coining from lhis district is not absolutely correct. A collection for the patriotic bind Is taken up every month by
the men working in the Comox logging
crimps, which averages about 50c per
mail, and there are upwards of 400 men
working. Kvery railway employee pays
something, and the farmers have for
months paid into the fund. Perhaps the
money has not gone direct to .Mr. Nation, but it hns been collected in this
community and forwarded somewhere,
Some of us have contributed to the fund
in various parts of Ontario. Of course
if tiie funds were getting low and the reduction was general we would have uo
kick coming, hut tbe soldiers' wives nf
tins district arc entitled to just as much
consideration from lhe Patriotic Fund
managers as those living anywhere eke
iu Canada.��� lid. |
Editor Review
Dear Sir, - I have ;.��� ������ received 1 cir-
eiiliu presumably Irom lix-Ald Johnston which sels out at some length the
desirability ol municipal ownership of
light and water. The circular is fairly
bristling with (acts nnd figures all con
tingeut upon one thin,' lin| ; . uiug, viz.
llu city having one hundred nml fifty
con sum ers, I will pass over the ci st ol
the system wilh just a word, il is loo
low by hall, practical builders say it cannot be done for any such amount as
11,lined, Again the cost of maintenance
is figured altogether too low. Now, sir,
I would like to ask when lire we to have
ISO consumers ? Courtenav has been
upwards of thirty years in the making
and all the company can find Is70. How-
long will it take to get 150 ? In the
meantime our taxes would amount to
aboul 50mills on thc dollar of real value
'i'hey are now 8 1-2 mills on an assessed
value of 100 per .cent, more than the
property is worth. I can see no advantage in having my taxes increased four
or five fold for the privilege of paying
the city J15 per annum (or electric light
that I can buy from the company for
���513.20.    How about it fellow ratepayers?
Thanking you, Mr. Editor, I nm
Yours truly.
Another Ratepayer
