When is a Kitchen
Not a "Kitchen"?
With a Hughes Electric Range, it
is a parlor. Just as cool and clean
and airy.
The modern "kitchen" deserves a
better name. In truth, it is a cooking apartment���as bright and tidy
as any other room. For since the
perfection of electric cooking, all
the clumsy ugliness and every
trace of dirt and soot and gas
have gone.
The modern cook works with her
head and not her hands. She has
hours of time that were never
hers before. Simple figures show
that in a life time five solid years
of drudgery are saved by this
practical invention.
And that isn't all. Consider the sacrifice of
happiness, health and youthful charm. Old-
fashioned methods have truly exacted a heavy

Beauty fades fast over a hot, dirty coal stove. Gas positively poisons! In combustion, gas takes up oxygen and gives out poisonous fumes. That is why plants
will not live where gas is burned. ���
* Mr. Master-of-the-House, this is not a luxury but a choice���not a choice but a necessity! Think it over. Then come in and see this Range. You will hear some facts
that will astonish yoa

Until a few years ago the Woermann Line was a private enterprise

Mr. Idiens Is again up in arms
at the editor of The Review. Mr.
Idiens Isold eroiigh, and surely
has written letters enough to tbe
press to know that the editor is not
responsible for opinions expressed
by correspondents. At nny rate
he wrote under that heading in last
week's Herald. With the first
two paragraphs of Mt- idienslettei
we have no particular fault to find.
We did (.probably foolishly,) publish ti letter without first reading it
carefully, from a correspondent
whose previous letters have generally been instructive and entertaining. We fail to see why the Board
of Trade should be dragged into
the matter at all They were not
even mentioned. In fact uo one
was singled out for special mention, With the last paragraph;
"The Board of Trade must say
definitely at tlieir monthly meeting next Thursday, what action,
if any, they will take," we heartily agree, and trust that they and
the Herald's correspondent will
dig into their jeans and nettle accounts with The Review. We
would draw Mr. Idiens' attention
to a paragraph in The Herald, ju t
above his letter; "Take the real
estate agent business. It ran the
country like the gold rush in the
Kloudykc .... It became a men-
ance to the country. The very
name of real estate agent became
odious." How does that strike

Is is a fact that our country
towns are not what they ought to
be; a large proportion of the business that should lu* theirs as a
matter of course is snatched fro 'i
their hands by the mail order
houses; that in their rush for civic
expansion, etc; they have in recent years neglected their best

Since the outbreak of the European war no one month has beeu
so filled with tragic surprises and
humiliating disappointments as has
the one now ending. It sees dissembling abandoned and the British
public is faced with startling sud-
diness by some very unpleasant
truths. It has been hinted at before
but is now frankly confessed that
the GerlUan invasion would have
long ago been turned to a route of
the Teuton had the Britisli army
only been furnished with ammunition sufficient to the need of the
hour, It is now also clear that the
many 'brilliant bayonet charges"
by the British and Canadian troops,
of whicli so much has been made in
the official dispatches, were necessary only because of lnck of atti'
munition for the supporting artillery. For lack of Jibwder and shot

The agent general goes on to
say that he has been requested to
convey the thanks of the Railway
Beard in London to the Govern'
ment of Britisli Columbia for un
dertaking the inspection and despatch of the ties.
It Will be remembered that this
order was secured for the province
as a result of strenuous efforts on
the part of the Minister of Lands,
and the Agent General in co-operation with the Canadian Trade
Commissioner in London, the Railway Company stipulating that the
B. G. Government undertake the
inspection of the ties before shipment.
Further orders for the Indian
railways were in prospect but the
lack of tonnage has caused them to
be held ill abeyance; there is every
hope however that when the shipping offers, those orders will be
placed, the success of the trial order leading   naturally   to   further

A prominent bank official of
Western Canada, who is taking a
keen interest in the   utilization   of
vacant lots fnr the growing of garden crops, says: ''It seems to me
that the 'daylight saving scheme'
would be one of the greatest factors
in helping ou the kitchen garden
movement. Il wou'd giveeveryoue
from Halifax to Vancouver an
hour's more time to work in (lav-
light than ihey would otherwise
have and it would be a great thing
for the health of the nation to have
an extra hour for outdoor recreation
and last, but by no means least
there would be a wonderful saving
of light, electricity, gas and oil.
The one hour extra daylight would
mean that liy the time darkness
came it would be pretty nearly
bed time, going by ordinaly rules.'
The report printed iu this issue
of the success of the first shipment
of British Columbia Douglas Kir
ties to India will cause universal
satisfaction. The lumber industry
supports a large proportion of the
population of 13. C.. directly or indirectly, and the opening up a
market in India for lumber will
mean much to the Province. When
it is remembered that the Government have undertaken an active
campaign for the extension of mar
kets for B, C, lumber iu Europe,
Australia, South Africa, aud the
Orient, the results of which are already coming in, a ten million feet
order only the other day for the
Admiralty, we are sure that this
praiseworthy venture will be approved by everybody having the
interests of the country at heart.

arm.v, which has by no means said its
lust word yet, and which will soon be
at least doubled. It is destined to
take great part in the decisive buttle
which is impending, and the certain
success of which is foreshadowed by
tiie recent actions at Perthes an 1
Neuve  f'hapelle.

it will be."
Turned the Trick
Knights   in   Shining   Armour   Against

"When it comes to real dare-devil
bravery, our friend.; tlie French are

"From whnt 1 understood, Ihese

a clever trick.
"One night they brought out the
two soils uf armour and placed them
about TS yards from their trench.
They rigged up the figures in a w y

these were two German officers giving orders to their men. When the

Germany's Object Was to Destroy the
Free Empire of England
Germany boasts that it  is her appointed  mission  to conquer a great
world-empire through which she may
impose her ideals upon mankind. Our
empire and  our ideals are tlie chief
obstacles in lier 'path.   This consideration  is the key lo all h>r world-policy.   That is why she has grasped at
the   trident.    That  Is   why   she  has
been intriguing for years in Egypt, in
India,  and  in  South  Africa.  That  is
why  she  has watched  our domestic
controversies and the supposed symptoms of onr decadence with malignanl
vigilance. That is why she bus "ought,
again and again, to sow mistrust between us aud our partners, and why i
at the last she tried to bribe us into I
treachery.   Her object in this war is
not only to shatter the triple entente,
hut  to shelter tlie entente in order lo
destroy the free empire of England,
nnd lo rear upon Us ruins a German |
world-empire of militarism ami bureaucracy, She hales us, she proclaims,
with  a   hatred  more  vindictive than
she bears the Belgians or Hie French.
Kile  hales us because sh? envies us,

A number of ancient Sumerlan tablets recording the deeds of the Babylonians thousand; of years ngo, have
just  been  deciphered   by  George   A.
Barton at the  University ot Pennsylvania Museum.    One of these tablets, which tells how a farmer rid his

The Dominion has yet to take lhe
war more seticusly, there is only
loo much roeni for a decline in liquor consumption, there is far too
much attention paid to party politics at a time when partisanship is
held by honourable men and patriotic politicians to be suspended,
there is even every reason to deplore the interchange of cheap wit
and bald sarcasm between rival
newspapers throughout B. C. and
Canada, and it seems incredible
that with the greatest war in the
world's history being waged, there
is time to wrangle over the position
of a post office. Caiianian boys are
being crucified, Belgian women and
girls, like   their   sisters of   Poland
,'orks anywhere,

h'ditor Coiirtc-inn  Review
Dear Sir,���As a resident and
business man of Courtenay I deeply regret your ill-advised action in
publishing the anonymous and
scurrilous article appearing in last
weeks' issue of your paper under
the heading of ''First Impressions
in Courtenay," The w.itir of
same whoever the gentleman may
be, deserves a dose of tar and
leathers from the citizens of this
town as payment for his mental labor in concocting an article so misleading and detrimental to the interests of lhe City of Courtenay.
Yours truly
IT. D. Forde.
