For Baking Success
-This Oven Test
Success on somo baking days
can be ox peeled no matter
what flour you use. But constant success is rarer. It can
be assured in only one way.
The miller must select his
wheat by oven test.
So from each shipment of
wheat we take ten pounds as
a sample. We grind this into
flour. Bread is baked from
the flour. __���_���_���_���__ *mi _
If this bread i.s high in quality, PJjRl l_y
large in quantity, we use the /
shipment from which it came.       /
Otherwise we sell it. /
Constant baking success comes /
as a matter of course from/

time is at hand when we should set
ourselves lo the accomplishment or
oven a greater era of development
than baa gOlK by In the last 25 years.
Heretofore, we have been laying the
foundation, constructing railways,
building harbors, and bringing Into
the country merely an advance guard
of colonization. The day ot the
pioneer is past, nud the pioneer has
done ids work well. We have now entered upon ten years of nation building.
Method of Scheme
For tlie building of this empire���
tho creation of a population of 10,-
(lUO.OOO In Western Cauada in ten
years���it is suggested that there be
formed the Western Canada Colonization , and Development League,
whose purpose shall b> the keeping
before the public of the world the
many advantages, resources nnd possibilities of Western Canada as a
whole. Up to the present, Western
Canada has been advertised largely
by tho railways, each of which gave
prominence to tbo development of
tho area with success ot their lines
or proposed lines. Every city has
been advertising its own attractions.
The governments of the various provinces have been advertising their
own province, and thousands of individuals have been advertising their
individual attractions, It is now suggested that iho advertising of West
crn Canada be centred In one organization
It is recognized that many of the
sources of advertising and develop
incut referred to would desire lo continue lo a certain extent, their own
advertising, for the direct benefit of
tlio specific areas whin'- Ihey controlled, or were interested in, but It
Is believed thnt one uud all of these
organisations mid Individuals will
readily recognize advantages which
will accrue through their devoting a
portion of their present advertising
appropriations lo the achievement, of
thiB' greal. end. There would nlso be
advantages in impressing upon tho
peoples of tbo world "Western Canada." Let them onee become attracted to the west, then -let thorn take
their choice ns to where they settle.
As a mailer of fact, With 10,000,000
people In the country, It will make
very little difference where they locate.

All the lady patients are reported
as good, self-respecting, respectable
women, although they smoke and
they all sincerely desire to get rid of
tlie habit. They are of good position
and character and some aro well
known In society. In only a very
small degreo aro the patients girls,
most of the number being wives and
mothers. Originally there were merely one or two, but recommendations

a daily Increase.

'Winnipeg had only  1,100 people, and |
iho district between tbat post and|
Victoria, was known on the map as

Urban deovlopmont, however, had
been   far   In  tidvanen  of  agricultural

Ihey wero merely selleri of land. Now
they were colonizers, In that no land
was sold without an obligation that

The speaker urged the necessity on

Flour Export to Germany
Canada's exports of flour to Germany have more than doubled during
the past six years. For the year ended March 81, 1913, tlio export
amounted to $4,47 .043 barrels, with
a value of nearly $20,000,000. In 1908
tho amount w��i 1,96.3.0 barrels,
valued at $S,4���4,954.
That Was the Lethbridge Record for
1913, According to Correct
In the year 1913, the province ot
Alberta produced 4,306.340 tons ot
coal. Lethbridge, including the district within one huni'red miles of this
city, produced 3,300,000 tons, or 66
per cent, ot the total output of lhe

The traffic to be handled is enormous, and navigation is stopped by
ice for or about four months each yea:
(ordinarily from Dec. 15 to April 16).
Consequently, il Is of the utmost'importance to hiiuillc the vessels
promptly and enable Ihem to make as
many trips as possible during the
navigation  season.
In 1905, congress authorized the
widening of Hie canal, while In 190/
an appropriation was made for the
construction of a third lock with an
llndopendei't canal, 'lhe canal widening was completed in 1911, and the
new lock and canal are expected to
bo In operation at tlm beginning ol
navigation in 1915, or possible earlier.
It was subsequently conslered desirable to duplicate tlie traffic capac-
as to provide against Interruption
traffic in the event of any accident at tlio third lock. This duplication Is a feature of the locks on the
Panama canal, where the traffic will
bo much less in volume than at "the
Soo." The additional lock was authorized by congress in 1912, ami work
is now In progress on the excavation.

Empire Day in
Courtenay and District
Empire Day was celebrated on j
Monday ill Courtenay and District J
in a fitting manner. The day wan
variable but fortunately the rain
kept away. In Courtenay flags
were flying from all the principal
Government buildings etc, whilst
the shipping at the wharves displayed bunting' of all colors, (Oh,
wake up Ed. this is not. 1924.)
Excuse me.
Empire Day Ims been conceded
to Cumberland in the district, aud
right well did she do herself. Over
30 events were on the sports pro-
giam for the day, and these
furnished great interest for the
large numbers of spectators who
thronged the grounds.
The baseball games were a surprise, the Japanese team winning
from Cumberland, Union Bay and
Bevan, Courtenay won the 5 a
side football match.
What was the matter with our
Courtenay boys, they were not
represented in the other events, it
is tune we had an Athletic Club to
make our men come out. Joe
Davis of Comox won the old man's
race and also came second in the
open quarter, going some for a
man 69 years of age.
A large crowd availed themselves of the kindness of the
Colliery Company, and left by the
special train from the Riverside
platform in the morning aud returned in good spirits abmt 10 p.
tn. after spending au enjoyable dav.
The West Cumberland Conservative Band rendered some fine
jtrsic during ti:   day, and  looked
very well in tlieir new uniforms.
_ e Cumberland Gleemen gave au
open air concert and after that the
Symphony Orchestra supplied the
music for the enjoyable dance which
took place after.
Taken altogether the Cumberland
committee ar-. to be congratulated
ou the splendid program they put.
on and the admirable way all
arrangements were carried out,
Opening Shoot of
the Gun
The opening shoot of the newly
formed Courtenay Gun Club took
place on Thursday afternoon, a
good number of members and spectators being present. The trap
took a few hours lo fix, the professional and amateur mechanics
having some little difficulty iu getting the correct adjustment which
is rather intricate. At 5 p. m. the
signal was given to let her go and
the shooting commenced, Some
fair shooting took place and there
is no doubt that with the material
in hand the Club* will be able to
render a good account of themselves.
The trap ouce going worked well.
On Thursday afternoon at the
Police Court House C. E. London
of Comox, was taken before Wesley Willard, J. P. and charged
with carrying a gun without a
license. Information was laid by
Game Warden Dawley that accused
was shooting pigeons to which
charge London pleaded guilty. - He
was fined $5 ar.d costs. %

1 had the pleasure the other day
while in Gomox, of attending a
meeting of the Salt Barrel Club, in
their room on Main Street, It was
a special lessiou ol the club, two
able speakers biing present to ad-
dreys the audience. The chair,
I which consisted of a dices ��� box,
was ably filled by Cyril Piercy, who
after making a few remarks as t<>
the nature of the meeting, hoped
ihe audience would keep good order
nnd give both speakers a fair hearing as they were bnth goin^ to talk
uu the general topics of the day.
The first speaker was a resident of
Happy Valley, but formerly of that
ti^ht little island called Hengland,
mi the other side of the herring
pond, lie spoke with an English
jnccent, and was togged out with,
the regulation suit, consisting of a
Tom und Jerry coal, and buckskin
breeches, aud when he mounted
the platform he resembled a pugilist
who had run out of a job, but he
had bis subject well iu hand, a_d
handled it to his own satisfaction.
He sailed into the Borden Govern-'
inent, denouncing it as the rotten-
est government Canada was cursed
with. Then lie sailed into the
Hick McBride Government���that
il is run by a gang of grafters aud
crooks aud blacklegs aud egg-
suckers, and Dick McBride is robbing the poor man, and making the
rich man richer. He said this
country is getting filled with English dukes and lords, and soon the
poor man will be taxed lo help to
keep them. He thinks they should
have a parliament at Dublin. He
thinks by what little he has heard
aLottt Ireland that the natives are
a smart people aud quite capable
to govern themselves. He said he
was not qttiie sure where Ireland
is located, but as far as he can find
out, it is in the south of France.
Mr. LaForest was the next speaker
and was in fine form. He is an
able platform speaker, and as he is
a fine robust looking man, aud
being very neatly attired, he got a
great reception, and after taking a
tresh chew of Black Watch he got
down to business. He sailed into
the first speaker aud knocked every
plank out of his platform. He
said it was all rot about the Borden
Government. He said it was the
best government Cauada ever had,
atrd any galoot who is uot satisfLd
with it should get out. He said he
eau lick any mau who throws dirt
at such a government, and that the
people have prospered under it,
He knew some of the natives in
Comox who used to subsist on
mush and milk for breakfast; milk
aird mush for dinner; and both for
srrpper, but since the present government have been in power, they
have buckwheat pancakes three
times every day, except Sunday.
Then he made a few remarks about
the McBride Government. What
the other speaker said was just li' e
what he would expect from a man
who had no more brains than a
toad has feathers. He said there
is a great chance at Nob Hill for
all English lords and dukes who
want to locate there; that they can
find work with the farmers, and
will uot be a burden on the ratepayers. Then 'he proceeded to
refute charges of the other speaker,
that Ireland is not treated right,
aud went on to explain that Ireland
has more freedom than any other
place, except Comox, aud he thinks
the speaker from Happy Valley
should go home and put his head
to soak and not come to Comox
and make a public exhibition of
his ignorance. He then concluded
his address, amid grea. applause.

Dear Sir: - As there is a lot uf
Hospital talk just now, the present
seems an opportune time to direct
attention, to some of the advantage8
the Sister's Hospital at Comox lias
in its location over the proposed
one at Courtenay,
Those who visited there last
Thursday could not but be impressed with lhe superior advantages
of the place as a hospital site.
In the llrst place, it is high aud
dry, commanding a view of the
Hay, Islands and Gulf, and is Open
to the bracing and stimulating sea
breezes, one of natures great
It is away from the foul odor of
decaying salmon which pervades

year. Il will also be away from
the bustle, noise aud dust which
will attend the advent of the trail:
service to Cotiitenay, und still be
within easy reach of Courtenay,
Cumberland and the camps.
All thoughtful and unbiased persons will agree that il would be
better to have one thoroughly
equipped and efficent Hospital than
two partly so, there is not sullicent
population to support two, and the
natural consequences would be two
half supported and half efficent
In the matter of Government assistance it vrould be quite simple
for the Government to pay so much
per patient treated there, as they
do in other places.
This course would be much less
expensive for the Government than
attempting to build, equip and
maintain one themselves.
However, if there must be one
at Courtenay, why not in the interests of suffering humanity, try
to get these ladies to close their
place here aud locate in Courtenay,
that our efforts and support may
be concentrated iu one institution,
so that those who may have to be
treated there, possiblv members of
our own families, may have the
very best that experience ' and
money can provide.

Editor Courtenay Review
Dear Sir:���I was pleased to find
on o. ening this weeks issue of the
Review, that Mr. Anderton had
been before me in taking exception
to Mr. Cameron's remarks, aueut
the class of patients received by the
hospitals of this Province under the
management of denominational
societies. There is accordingly,
nothing more to be said on this
point, but I hope I may trespass on
your space in order to corroborate
another point that Mr. Anderton
has touched upon, by means of
a few facts of which Mr. Cameron
seems entirely unaware.
If that gentleman will turn up
the B. C. Public Accounts for the
year ending March 31. 19I3, (a
free Government pttblicatio 1) he
will fiud on page C79, a list of
the hospitals of the Province in
receipt of the "per capita" grant,
A large proportion of these hospitals, though by no means denominational as such, are nevertheless under the direct manageament
of denominational societies. Some
of them obiviously so by reason of
their titles, such as the Sacred
Heart a'. Greenwood, aud the St.
Eugene at Craubrook, and are iu
all probability Roman Gathclics.
St. Bartholomew's at Lytton, is I
believe Anglican and under the
directku of Archdeacon Pugh. well
known to many residents of our
Nearer home the Columbia Coast
Mission carries on a useful work
at Vananda, Rock Bay and Alert
Bay, and is I fancy a Nonconformist undertaking
Oue couuot be surprised in view
of these facts that the Sisters at
Comox, as Mr, Anderton announces
no doubt with all authority, should
take advantage of the grants provided under the Hospital Acts.
It is clear therefore, that the
Provincial Government is equable
enough to grant equal rights to its
citizens, without regard to denomination, and it is not too much to
expect the like from a fair minded
locality. j
With regard to the site for a I
hospital destined to provide not!
only for  the needs of Courteuay
It Makes Owners Feel Like They
Are Part Of A Big Family
"While in London, Ontario, recently," said G. M. McGregor,
general manager of the Ford Motor
Company of Canada Limited' "i
met personally a number of Ford
owners, as i.s mv custom when on
business trips, and was delighted
to tin ' that our efforts to give good
service through our branches and
dealers, were highly commended,
One owner, in expressing his
satisfaction, emphasized the very
feature thai we have been endeavoring to make the cardinal principal
of our service, the idea that each
owner is 1 unit of the whole.
He expressed himsels something
after this fashion:
" 'I ant impressed with l'ord
service, because afler experiencing
it for four years, 1 feel as though I
were a part���a real part���of the
Ford family. It it not as though I
were dealing with an individual
dealer, more or les_ a stranger to
nie and to his own factory. The
attention the branch here gives to
my needs, as well as that received
from outside when touring, has
always been executed with such a
willing spirit that I feel as if we
were all brothers in one bigfanrilv.
There is a spirit of camaraderie
that i' extremely gratifying To
be a Ford owner is like being in a
fraternity, or some excluive society
and without this family feeling I
know your service could not be as;
efficient. It certainly is pleasing
to know that any time you wish
yott can roll up to your dealer and
be received as cordially as though
you were a new prospect, no matter
what your wants may be.' "
"T_at is the style of service we
are aiming to give all along the
line, and we are doing our utmost
to see that our intentions are being
carried out. Promises and intentions are one thing, however: fulfillment quite another. The owner
is tne only oue in a positiorr to pass
judgment accurately, and his
opinion is worth considerably more
than all the service talk a factory
executive or a dealer can hand out.
He is the fellow who can tell you
how quickly his repair part was
filled and whether or not the man
who overhauled his car did a good
And that is the reason why I
considered the remarks of my friend
in London so gratifying and so
important. He is in a position to
know, aud he proves that sometimes service ideals are actually
itself, but for a wide district by no
means sparsely settled, of which
Comox aud Little River cannot be
considered negligible factors, I
should not 1 are to lightly venture
an opinion.
Other considerations apart, the
natural advantage of the situation
the Sisters have chosen must come
very near the ideal, and while it is
not altogether surprising that the
townspeople should desire to have
the institution in their midst, they
may well console themselves with the
immeasurably superior advantage
the district now enjoys over what
has hitherto existed.
In conclusion, I have no doubt
that Mr. Cameron as I myself, as
well as the whole committee of
local men, should any of us have
the misfortune to fall a victim to
one of "the thousand natural
shocks" will gladly take advantage
of the kindness and ability (to use
Mr. Cameron's own expression)
of the worthy Sisters of Comox.
With all apoiogies, dear Mr.
Editor for this serious claim on
yaur indulgence.
I am yours truly

Letter to the Editor
Courtenay Review
Dear Sir:���One hears nowadays
so much of the Incorporation of
Courtenay, emanating mostly from,
shall I say, with your permission
Mr. Editor, a number of those
who have their axes to grind, On
the other hand I lure is quite a
bunch of sharp headed business men
who do not favor Incorporation,
men who have spent their all in
building up Courlenay Hamlet lo
what she is today, men who have
large interests in the welfare . f
this place, conditions of living and
lighting their own places; others
who have lived the greatest part of
their lives in the District, improving
their farms and getting same to as
near a state of perfection as is possible; men wiio have the knowledge
that this Hamlet requites most of
all, water. The latter have spent
time and money for the last 12
months to secure for the town
water, to be bucked time after time
ful Agricultural Valley (considered
to be the first on tiie Island) are so
dependent upon outside help. On
sees it on all sides, if ihey keep
tlieir eyes open, how we largel;
d.'pend upon Ilie outside world for
most things that sustain life. Om
sees onions and butter from New
Zealand and Australia, radishes,
lettuce and cabbage from California.
hnv and oals nnd general feed are
bsing shipped almost every two o'
three mouths into this splendid
agricultural district Canned goods
salmon, beef, jam, vegetables, etc,
all come to us from an outside
soucre. Money to buy and s<dl and
gamble in Real Estate is kindly
sought and secured on the strength
of the great value of the land (from
a productive point) in this splendid
agricultural valley, from English
and other suckers.
Mow, Mr. Editor, if' this so
called and much boosted agricultural valley, endowed with the best of
climates, and finest of soils to produce all these articles enumerated
above,    hns to depeud  upon the
by the above   named.   Now,  Mr, I outside world for its main supplies
Editor, it strikes me very forcibly,
that to incorporate a small hamlet
such as Courteuay is today would
be the height ol madness, insomuch
and as far as I am able to understand it is necessary for an incorporated city to be self supporting.
It is not my intention to enter
largely upon the pros and cons of
Incorporation, but I should
certainly like to draw a comparison
not between Courtenay Hamlet
aud Incorporated Cumberland, or
Incorporated Alberni, but between
Incorporated Courtenay and those
who are interested in Agriculture
and the District as producers.
I'erhaps it has never come to
your notice, how we in this beauti-
of food for horse and man, it is not
self supporting.
How can 6. 7, or 8, hundred
people on the suggested Incorporation area, expect to support this
Hamlet of Courtenay as an Incorporated city? No, Mr, Editor, it
won't work. It is like Monkey
Braird Soap, won't wash clothes.
Let those interested in Agriculture introduce modern methods,
improve their farms and produce-
not buy in. Let those who are
interested in Real Estate instead of
waiting for suckers from England,
turn their thoughts and energies to
securing money for this Hamlet for
the production of something from

Wolverine Swims the Straits
Some Comox Indians whilst proceeding from Cape Mudge to
Campbell River last week, sighted
an aunitnal swimming in the water.
They rowed over aud despatched
it with their oars and pulled it into
the boat. On their arrival at
Comox they threw it out on the
beach, and allowed it to ;tiy for
several days, where it speedily decomposed. Their chagrin at find -
ng from Came Warden Dawley
that the annimal was a wolverine
and very scarce and valuable, can
be imagined. Constable Haunay
captured the brush.
Cattle Maiming at Courtenay
A cattle maiming outrage took
nlace at Robt. England's, Lake
Trail road, early on Friday morning. Constable Hannay was called
to the scene and found a valuable
cow with all four legs cut above
the hocks. No trace of the author
of this can be fouud as the ground
was very 'hard at the time, but the
police are working on the case aud
it is hoped the perpertrators will
be brought to justice.

Margery waa very pale, but'quiet.
She sat with lier lingers locked in

"II wns a bad business," Wardrop
went on wearily. "Fleming moved
inlo lluller's place as treasurer and

there was an unexpected' call for
