When King Albert of Belgium, as
prince Allien, put aside bis title and
became a newspaper correspondent,
he travelled a good deal, visiting
France, Austria, Britain, Scandinavia
and the American continent, including Canada.
In this wny the democratic prince
wus able to study the commercial advantages of other countries, as well
as broadening his views and educating liis mind. In order thai he should

llons King Albeit, grew a beard, wore
glasses, und trimmed his hair in a

whom be was u familiar ligure passed
him without recognition in the vnr-
ious (owns he visited.
The royal reporter seriously worked ul. the profession be adopted. In
the United States lie was employed by
a Minneapolis newspaper at a salary
of $15 a week. The king's employers
wero quite unaware uf liis Identity,
and when lie returned witli poor
"copy" he was as badly hauled over
the coals as were his less aristocratic
colleagues.    A       story  is  told  by his
conferee ot the way be endeavored to
obtain copy.
Whilst ou a Brooklyn newspaper
Albert wanted entry into a house
where a murder imd taken place. He
was slopped by a policeman, who demanded his curd. Tim blue-blooded
reporter did not happen tn have one,
so the   representative   of   tlie   law
j roughly ordered him oft.
1     A  rival  reporter    who  noticed  Uie

policeman'   "Air. Prince   should have

In his reporting days King Albert
volunteered to write on any subject

round athlete he was especially qualified as au authority on outdoor

Twelve hundred and fifty rounds per

reduced already to picking up the tired

Trench lighting   is particularly well

The school trustees would tlo
well to try and engage competent
teachers for the next year, who will
make Courtenay their home, and
stay for a number of years. We
pay large enough salaries to employ
married teachers of the first class.
This is a beautiful country iu whicli
to live, The surroundings are congenial and the people are thrifty
and friendly. Schools always work
at a disadvantage because of constant change of teachers, aud there
is great loss of progress by the
scholars. No one knows what progress, if any, has been made at the
School during the past year. No
final promotion examinations were
held by the teachers, mid the reports of the entrance examinations
will not be ready until Thursday
Among those brave lads who
have fallen or who are fighting with
the Allies at the Front, are the

Hobbs, A. Evans, Angus, Jack,

chants of Victoria were among the
first to claim this privilege and to
plead for the preference over mail
order houses, However, on Dominion Dav, the Victoria Retail
Merchants Association organized
an excursion whicli look 700 people
out of town for the day, The destination might have been Nanaimo,
Vancouver, or the delightful Gulf
Islands cruise uud the money thus
circulated would have been retained
in tiie province. The Retailers'
Association thought differently, and
hied across to Seattle instead, where
probably at least fifteen hundred
dollars were left behind fur the
benefit of Uncle Sam, to the exclusion of the province, and especially of Vancouver Island from
which tlie retailers draw so much
of tlieir trade, directly or indirectly.
It is to be hoped that the communities affected will take note.
In tlle above connection, it is related that General George Washington during a critical period for
thc American forces during t'ne war
of Independence, had to exhort his
supporters "to hang together" if
tbey wanted victory. When a nial-

that policy, the leader rep'ied, 'l*'or

Medicinal Plants
To describe, or even to give oi the
five hundred varieties of jdnnts that
come under the head ol medicinal, as
given in a more lIi.im ordinary Interesting Bulletin by Assistant Doinion botanist, 1. Adams, M. A., would lake up
an exceptional amount ot space. Mr,
Adams entitles his publication, "Medicinal I'la.its anil their Cultivation
in Canada " It is Bulletin No 23,
Second .Scries, of the Experimental
Farms, am! cuu be had free by addressing the Publications Branch,
Department of Agriculture, Ottawa.
Dr. Grisdale, of the Dominion Experimental Farm*, makes a correct
estimate when lie says "Such information as is contained in this
publication should be of value to
many of our farmers." Dominion
Botanist Gussow explains that the
bulletin owes its preparation to the
numerous enquiries received from
time in time relating lo the cultivation nt plants possessed of certain
medicinal or health^restoritig properties. Mr. Ailams, who v;ns
formerly lecturer on Botany and
Vegetable Materia Medien nl Dublin, Ireland, suggests that no fnnn-
c! runs any risk by devoting a
small pint of about an acre to drug
culture us an experiment for a few
years. I'm. for anybody to go
headlotlg into the business as a
speculation would be unwise.
After dealing with soil, climate;
cultivation, collection, drying, imports and exports, and explaining
the terms used, Mr. Adams gives
prominence, with faithful illustrations iu outline, to the medical
plants 111 demand. These briefly
American White Hellebore or
Indian Poke, flowers May and June
poisonous, occurs in wet swamps
and wet woods from New Brunswick to British Columbia; price 8
to 10 cents per pound.
Hop, flowers July and August,
ripe, September and October, occurs
in thickets and on riycr banks
from Nova Scotia to Manitoba,
cultivated in Ontario and British
Columbia; 25 to 55 cents per pound.
Golden Seal, flowers in April,
ripe in July or August, native of
woods in Ontario, must be cultivated; 55.45 lo 55.75 per pound,
While Mustard, flowers all summer, occurs in fields and waste
places; S cents a pound.
Black Mustard, occurs in field
and waste places; to cents per pctind
Senca Snakeroot or Mountain
Flax, flowers iu May or June,
grows in rocky roods from New
Brunswick to Alberta; 50 to $[.15
per pound.
Sacred Bark or Barberry, occurs
in moist situations iu the mountains
of Britis'.i Columbia; 8 to 10 cents
per pound.
American Ginseng, collected in
September, occurs in woods in
Quebec and Ontario, 5 cents per
Carawav, flowers from May to
July, occurs on waste ground In
Kastern Canada; 6 to 9 cents per
Peppermint, flowers July to September, occurs in wet ground from
Nova Scotia to Ontario, 9 to 16
cents per pound.
Spearmint, grows in wet grounds
from Nova Scotia to Ontario; q to
16 cents per pound,
Mr, Adams, in addition to giving
description and exact illustrations,
in every case quotes the market
price. Following' the plants in
leading demand, lie conies to those
used in moderate or small quantities
such as Irish Moss, Ergot, Male
Fern, White Pine, Hemlock, Balsam Fir, Juniper, and so on,
These occupy 24 pages, two to five
to a puue, and then we have foreign
medicinal plants which might grow |
in Canada. A list of 54 publications and a comprehensive index '
add to the instriictivniess and

Advices reaching the Minister of Lands
concerning the lire situation throughout
the Province arc for tbe present satisfactory, although llie Immediate pros-
i ect, unless rain falls, are rather ominous in certain sections.
During the early part of last week
ruin fell ill tlie Hazelton, Nelson, Cranbrook, Vernon and Kamloops districts
as well as in tbe eastern sections of tlie
Pott George Division, followed however
by clear, warm weather, with resulting
increase in the fire hazard. In tbe Tele
Jaune District, conditions are reported
as being reasonably safe, in view ol tbe
hot,dry, windy weather,
The prevailing heat accompanied by a
clear atnios] bere and wind, Willi resultant drying out of vegetation lias been
responsible for severrl fires in tlie Coast
Districts, outbreaks being reported at
North Vancouver, I.augley, Delta, Half
Moon Hay. Cbeakir:;us, Texada Island
Toba Inlet, Thurlow Island, Green Point
Rapids and Pougbboro Inlet, the area
burnrtl over being approximately 1,000
acres, principally slashings, and tbe
damage to merchantable timber fortunately small.
Four fires, 'ill under con'.i >!, have occurred ill tlie Island District, two of
which were at Parksville and a third at
The policy ol burning over slash areas
which lias been pursued with much success this year, largely under the direction
ot at the suggestion of the Hon. W, R.
Ross' department, lias undoubtedly led
to fewer fires than would bave been tbe
case otherwise, and the large amount of
laud cleared by settlers under permit!
lias also materially diinished the fire
danger. I

Every precaution needs to lie exercised

Anaesthetics for Horses
On the battlefield in Kurope.
horses are treated with just the same
care and skill as is shown to the
soldiers, and are given chloroform
and other anaesthetics before beiug
operated upon by skilled officers. To
every division and cavalry brigade
is attached a mobile veterinary section, each consisting of one officer and
twenty-two trained men of the A.V.C.
The mobile section i.s divided into
Iwo sub-sections, one employed in collecting sick and wounded horses from
the firing lina and other places, while
the other brunch conveys the patients
to the nearest gallhead. Thence they
are scut, by train to-tlie nearest base
veterinary hospital, where tbey are
treated according to tiie nature of
their wounds or sickness.
Eaeli hospital has accommodation
for some thousand or more cases,
and is equipped wihf every requisite
fur medical and surgical use. When
sufficiently .recovered tlie horses are
drafted to tlie convalescent farm,
where the cure is completed.
