As a general rule subscribers
to the Review are prompt in
paying their subscriptions, but
there are quite a few who seem
to forget that it costs something
to print a paper, even a modest
effort like The Review, To the
latter we would make the request
that they liquidate their indebtedness as soon as they can find it
convenient to do co. If they
owe two or three years and feel
thev cannot afford to pay it all
at the present time, surely they
can arrange to pay at least half
the amount, This notice is for
all who are behind in the payment of their subscriptions.

The School and thc Farm
Benefits Derived From Teaching
Agriculture in the Schools
In times past llicrc has been far
too lillle connection between the
school and lhc farm. Willi the Introduction of agriculture into the school
syslem an opportunity is offered to
bring  llic  school  and   farm  together j
iu a nianner which will bc beneficial
lo both and peculiarly beneficial to
llic farm boy who is the medium for
such co-operaiioii. Ii is necessary lo
have real co-operation ou the part of
lhc parent if lhc school and lhc farm
arc io bc brought Into closer relationship to lhc advantage of all concerned. The parent musl furnish ihci
pupil with the laud, the animals or
iin- equipment for the carrying out
of  lhc  projects selected.      lie    musl
also grant the pupil lhc time needed
for llic work, and should verify and
vouch for llic lime record of the pit-
|nl. He should also, so far as may
be practical, give lhc pupil the benefit
of bis own experience iii the accomplishment of similar projects, ami to
give lhc work a maximum of educational value lie should allow lhc pupil the benefit derived from Ills own
labor and management, This, how*1
ever, may not bc always easy of nc-1
compllstunont where the pupil lakes
lip one of the phases of the regular
business of the farm as Ills task. ���

overtaxing of the blood that makes

Docs everybody understand about

Most persons do. But some don't
and should bc told that a soldier to
bc fit to use should bc an athlete in
the iop of training. He should not
only have learned drill, Ihc use of
'.'.capons, the care of himself in camp
and all that, but should have so hardened and developed his body by exercise that it can stand long and severe exertion without injury. In
training a hunter they begin by giving hint long walks. It lakes several
weeks to gel even an experienced
horse so he can go fasl antl far across
In training college boys for fool-
ball or row ing, the preliminary exercises lasl for week*. And for ini-
iraincd boys boat races and football
are dangerous.
So arc military exertions dangerous to untrained soldiers. Their bodies musl get used to a new diet;
iheir muscles to new exercises. Even
their minds have to bc adjusted. A

Tbe Pri-nt-h* Canadian problem is
becoming a real thorn in the side of
the Dominion, for that people are
not of Camilla although thev ate in
the Dominion, Their manners,
their characteristics, their way of
thinking, and their attitude upon
most things arc all tin-Canadian,
In spile of the exhortations of their
clergy, their politicians, although
not all of either class and those of
their race who are less igi.oranl
than the rest, the French-Canadians are duplorably behind in furnishing recruits for the rb.rle.ee
alike of Canada and France, This
cannot be allowed to go on, for
such an alien community is a menace to the Empire, and no asset.
it comes of treating the French-
Canadian population for years in
such a way thai they are now a
petted, pampered antl utterly spoil-1
ed people. How long is Canada
going to endure it?
_.._���. _���- ������
Advance, Canada!
Progress on the part of the Dominion us a whole is bound to be
reflected sootier or later in every
section of British North America,
In this connection, the Hade return

Canadian imports for the year
ending June, 1916 amounted to
$629,07.,663 as computed with
$558 315,9y2 for the twelve months
eliding June 1915 On the other
band, Canadian exports, exclusive
of coin and bullion, totalled $873,
413,452 for the year ending June
last, as against $4.17.238,151 for
the previous period. Such an expansion is without precedent, and
the signs point to still further
growth in this direction. It is an
encouragement to those who believe in Canada, and who prefer
Canadian manufactures lo any
other. It is by buying Canadian
manufactures that industries are
expanded to the point where it is
possible for them to bid for export
Iu August, 158.651,000 Canadian
shingles entered the United States
market, an increase of over seven
millions on the same month of 1915
Tbe total for the eighl months of
of 1916 is now 1,102,134,000, as
against 1,0X8.983,000 for the corresponding period of last year.
Tlie I". S, shingle mills aie naturally jealous of   Canadian   (m inly
B, CO competition, and maintain
the threat of securing tariff adjustments to keep the home markets
to themselves.
Notes By The Way
An eastern coneeiuporary   states
that 5o.i cars of lumber from B, C. I
are being shipped daily to the easi.
Tllis i*- 11 striking fact   and  should
do much to revive conditions in in-;
dustry generally in Ibis piuviuce.
The latest 11. C. pnper to suspend 1
publication is tlie li. C, .Western
Catholic. The reason isjascribed 11
the action of tlie Roman Catholic
Archbishop in Interdicting the paper for the editor's attitude of Prohibition, since the journal was the
Archbishop's official organ.
Prohibition and
Lumber Industry
The "Tiinberinan" of P.rtland,
in its issue of Sept, has the follow
ing editorial,
The business interests of the
United States have decreed that
alcohol reduces efficiency and increases tlie liability to accidents.
They are done witli it. European
countries, notably , Kussia has decreed for total prohibition. In the
West the sentiment for prohibiting
the sale of alcoholic stimulants has
been brought about with very little
public agitation. The whiskey
thinker was found to be winning in
stability of purpose slid was eliminated lirst by the great railroad
systems and 11ic-1 bv lesser co operations.
Tbe slates of Idaho Washington
ami Oregon are dry States, The
state of Idaho has probably the
mosl dinstic proliibitiot. law in the
United Stales Washington and
Oregon bate less stringent regulations but an- determined to strength
en their laws by amendment and
stand squarely with Idaho.
Ai the present time in Oregon
and Washington the brewers nre
active, Two bills have been initiated in Washington which would
lower the bars and permit hotels to
serve liquors and also permit the
breweries to operate, lu Oregon
tbe brewers' amendment is similar
to tint of Washington with the
added issue of total prohibition,
before the voters. Montana has
decided to fall in line in the dry
campaign. There is no maudlin
sentiment connected with the prohibition movement. It is simply a
cold blooded business proposition
The men who assume the hazards
of industry require a clear brain to
prevent accidents to themselves
and their associates. The lumber
industry ba.*, suffered heavily from
the toll whiskey imposes both in
lives and capital, and should stand
as a unit against any modification
of the present laws iu Washington
and Oregon, except to make them
more stringent. British Columbia
voted recently in favor of prohibition. In California the subject is
under discussion.

'-When I was up in the trenches
recently I saw numerous owls,
They used to flap about among the
trenches at night, quite regardless
of shells and snipers, getting a fine
harvest of rats and mice, with wliicli
the trenches literally swarm. They
were the big brown owls. Thev
always disappeared two hours before dawn. I never could make

There was a movement of surprise.
F.verybody craned forward lo watch
Paul, a.s lie raised bis voice and went
cu with increasing emphasis:
"1 believe Ibis so-called theft is
not a tli eft at all: I believe il is a
praclieai joke of a particularly weak
and silly kind, that bas been played
on Mrs. Finchden. Cf course, 1 may
bc wrong. But I've thought il all
ovcr, and I can't think of any oilier
way of .accounting for whal has happened. A thief wouldn't have taken
part of the pearls, would be? He
would have taken all. And no thief
goes about���at least 1 should find il j
hard lo believe thai be did���armed j
with rows and rows of mock pearls
to leave in the place of real ones."
There was already a movement of
relief among his listeners. Any way
mil of tbe horrible difficulty was lo
be welcomed, and Paul heard murmurs of approval and acquiescence on j
all sides.
lie  wenl   on:
"Well,  Ihen,  Mr.  Jackson,  whal   li
suggest   is  that   you   should   give  us j
al! onc week iu which lo find out who |
did this, who played this exceedingly
bad joke.   And depend upon it, if we
all play detective together, before the
week's oul we shrill have shamed the
idiot  who    did  ibis  into    confession

When he stopped there was an outburst. Everybody spoke at once,
everybody jumped al lhe plan. Whether Mr. Jackson thought it of value,
or not, be presently agreed lo Iry il;
he would take no steps until a week
had passed, leaving himself free lo
do what he pleased al lhc end of
thai lime, if Paul's plan proved unsuccessful.
The party dispersed in a slate of
high excitement, sonic slill smarting
under a sense of lhe insult put upon

the ladies inclined lo be hysterical,
and some of the men resolved to
leave the house lhal very day.
Calmer counsels, or curiosity, or
the wish to stay where they were
very comfortable, prevailed, however, and in lhe end everyone resolved lo see il oul.
I.ady Ursula was overjoyed at her
husband's action in the matter, and
when be followed ber upstairs, where
she had gone to put on her hat and
cloak for a walk to the nearest village, she threw her arms round bis
neck and kissed him joyfully.
"Oh, Paul," she whispered, "that
was a splendid thought of yours!
Splendid! ll just relieved the tension and made us all feel more al

a practical joke?"
"I'm sure I don't know. It flashed
into my mind that it might bc, with
so many idle young fellows banging
about all day, with nothing better lo
do than  amuse themselves.
"But il would bc such a shocking
breach  of hospitality!" objected  she.
"My dear, in bouses of this sort
that idea gets overlooked altogether.

his achievement, and it was with unusual alacrity that be agreed to accompany her on  her walk.
"It will be like old limes, before
ve were married, Paul," she said,
smiling; "when you used to carry my
lia-ket fur mc In my old people at
Downstairs ihere was manifest a
great inclination lo split up iulo
small groups of two and three to
discuss what had taken place at luncheon. Hugo found himself, as be
often did, in close proximity to Lady
Emmeline, who had not yd got ovcr
the shock of the scene. She was inclined lo bc tearful,.and she was very
cold lo Hugo, whom she looked upon, indeed, as in sonic way involved
in the affront put upon all the guests.
I'or Mr. Jackson was usually very
much under the influence of his son.
Perhaps Hugo fell this, for lie was
very bumble as be followed Lady
Emmeline into the winter garden anil
meekly asked her if she would have
a game of billiards.
"No, thank you," she said haughtily.
"Well, don't tread on me," objected Hugo, petulantly, "To ask a girl
to play billiards isn't a penal offence."
"No, it's we, your father's guests,

For a number of years, says The

a good deal of criticism on lhe part
of the fanners in thc West against
mortgage companies. Four-fifths of
the farms in the Prairie Provinces
are mortgaged, and il is therefore a
question of vital interest to the farming community. The prevailing average rate of interest in Manitoba on
farm mortgages is seven per cent.,
and in Saskatchewan and Alberta
eight -per cent., and there arc mortgages carrying nine per cent., with

Panama Canal, the Dominion Government has erected a large elevator
at Vancouver, B.C., tlirougli which it
is not idle to suppose a proportion of
the grain shipments destined for Europe will this year pass. This new
elevator has just been taken off lhc
contractors' hands by the Dominion
Grain Commission.
At thc end of April, 1915, the total
elevator capacity of Western Canada,
according to the joint tariff published    bv the  Canadian    railways,  was
148,435,000 bushels.      Willi  the additions made, lhat are referred to above!

Travellers coming from Russia, no

will take place immediately after lhc

world, new ideas, and new knowledge of civilized living. Russia, it is
said, fully expects a revolution after
thc war, but the hope and belief is
that it will bc purely political and unattended by bloodshed and destruction.

I wish to thank you for the prompt manner in which the London &
Lancashire Fire Insurance Company have settled my recent loss by fire.
The fire occured on October the 2nd, .and my receiving cheque inside of a
week is proof to me that it pays to insure in an old and established Fire

settlement, providing the assured has taken the trouble to see that the

Letter to the Editor
Editor Courtenay Review
Dear Sir;���In your paper of Sept.
_ist. you state (in speaking of the
Ladies department of the Comox
Fair) that a uuniber of old articles
were on hand and duly received
Mow, Mi. Editor, that statement
is not altogether correct, and I
think the Local paper should be
fair to the Judges and Directors
and not make reflections of this
kind; and in justice to those who
spend a great amount of time to
make the Exhibition a success the
least you can do is to apologize,
The fact of the exhibit in this
department being verv small this
year, coupled with the fact that
' very nearly one half the exhibit
was put there by two exhibitors,
(Exhibitors of old standing in the
district both well and honorably
known) makes your article appear
personal, and I wish to state that I
know for a positive fact that the
old articles which weie on show
but contrary to your statement did
not receive prizes) were exhibited
by few exhibitors who thought the
work only would be taken into con
sideration, and that the age of the
article would not disqualify it, _ A
great deal of malicious backbiting
gaes ou every year at the Exhibition and unless any person can prove
their statemen s it would be muc h
better for them to keep their mouth
closed, and although I do not wish
to dictate to you how. to run yonr
paper, I think you will 'agree with
me that you should be very careful
about printing any idle gossip you
may hear on the streets thereby
causing trouble and consequently
very materially hurting the Exhibition,
Yours truly
P, Leo. Anderton.
