Electricity provides the cleanest, the
most sanitary and the most hygen'ic
method of cooking
The Electric range closely parallels the wood or gas
range but ^excells  either in flexibility of operation
With the Electric Range you cook
under ideal conditions because
Each cooking unit can be switched to high, medium or simmering heat and kept there as
long as needed
It is the acme of cleanliness
Practically no heat escapes into the room
The air is not vitiated
There is no contamination of food
You save food values through the retention of the
essential salts and meat juices, on a six pound
roast the saving is nearly a pound
All the latest standards of range construction are
used, including high oven, thermometer or

The fire risk is lessened because there are no open

when Courteuay started   to grow, \

he built the   store   now   used   bv i
Kirkwood & Sutton,   Undertakers.'
The Courtenay business   was  sue- j
cessful from the start, and  he soon
moved his family  here,   and   con-1
ducted branch stores at Cumberland 1
and Comox.    About   seyen   yearsI
ago Mr. McPhee retired   and   dis-1
posed of his Cuinber.aud store, and
the Comox and Courtenay business
was taken over by   W, S. McPhee
and Hugh Morrisoti,    In 1912 Mr.
McPhee  built   the   present   large
store, and  an   enormous business
was done during the boom.    Three
years ago, after the death   of   Mr.
Walter McPhee, thi Conn x branch
was sold to Mr. A.   B.   Ball,   and
Mr, Mcl'hee was appointed   manager of the Courtenay   store.    Mr.
McPhee was a shrewd aud   careful
trader and had the confidence   and
respect of the community; and has
amassed a fortune, and now retires
from an active business life.    Mr,
Cross is a thorough dry goods man,
having been raised and received his
training at St. John's   Nlld.    He
came to the Pacific coast   in   1912
and has successfully   conducted   a
general store in the Fraser Valley.
We trust he will have as long, and
honorable, and succtgrJul a   career

Protecting Birds
International   Agreement  That

Uncle -Sam linn jusl signed a new
treaty with Great Britain, a treaty
which i- ol especial interest to ihis
li is 11 brand new treaty, novel,
and iitiii|iie, inasmuch as il is free
from political chicanery or diplomatic  manocuvcring,
Ii is n treaty between llie United
States and Ureal Britain for the
protection and conservation of migratory birds,
Such an agreement will be welcomed  by  bird  lovers  everywhere.
The idea i*. said lo have originated with John M. Wallace, stale
game and li.-li commissioner ol" Alabama, who for years has urged upon llic powers at Washington ihe
need for such a treaty.

In llieir annual migration thousands of birds and waterfowl havc

"Dope" Habit
Increases in Canada
Society  Will Be Benefited By Anything That Can Be Done to
Remove thc Evil
An alarming increase in lhc "dope"
habii in Canada is indicated irom ihe
annual     report on Canadian    prison
management just issued.
"1 hiring    the    past    fifteen  years,"
says  lhc  repori,    "llierc  has  been  a
rapidly increasing ralio of criminals
who assert that lhe crimes were committed    under   the   influence of ihc
drug habit.      At onc of our instilii-
li"iis, a very large proportion of Ihosc
admitted arc confessedly    'dope victims.'    A dangerous characteristic of
the habit is that lhc man appears lo

Are sert his   absolute   ignorance   of the

;. . iscnls great difficulties."
M '. 'h I "Attention is called lo this cause of
' ' 'crime," concludes the report, "because
it is only within recent years lhat jt
has assumed serious proportions in
our prisons and among the classes of
community from where prisons
arc filled. Society will be greatly
benefited by anything that can be
dime lo remove llie evil before it

The Franchise for Women
War   Is Sweeping   Away an   Anti-
Suffrage Argument
The foremost, though by no means
lhc strongest, argument against
woman suffrage has always been the
suppositious connection between ballots and bullets. Since women could
not bear arms it was argued that
they ought not to vote. The fact
that all voters do not light and that
fighling men have rarely been voters
seemed to have no effect upon the
minds of those who raised the objection. It is heard even in America,
where almost lhc only class of men
excluded from lhc polls is the regular army,
But the new mode of warfare has
swept away whatever appearance of
validity there was in this old anti
argument. Lloyd George in his
speeches has always insistcdj,liat the
men making munitions were just as
I truly fighting the Germans as the
men in the trenches. But "the men
I making munitions" now are largely
| women. There are over 600,000
women engaged in (he Britisii muni-

Fears for Safety of Russian Explorers
The Russian consul at Montreal has
communicated to the department of
naval service the news that two
Russian explorers, who set out at the
head of two separate Arctic expeditions toward lhe Behring Slraits in
1912 are missing. The men are V. A.
Iloiisanoflr, a geologist, who sailed.in
the motor vessel Hercules for a scientific study of the polar seas, and
Lieut. G. L. Brousiloff, I.R.M., who
sailed on the auxiliary schooner Anna
to investigate conditions of navigation from the Sea of Kars to the
Behring Straits. Fears are entertained in the absence of news that both
have perished. Word was received in
August, 1914, that the Anna had been
abandoned on Franz Josef Land.

Onc of the towns which is suffering most from ihis new form of German atrocity is Lille ��� sometimes

The Bishop of Lille has addressed
an eloquent protest in the name of religion to thc German general in command of lhc town, but protests of any
kind are a waste of words when addressed to the German military authorities.
Their apparent motive for the present proceedings is a desire to compel thc French civilian population to

that in order to offset the higher I
prices of those commodities which
we cannot produce, we must grqwl
more of those which we can pro- j
duce. In so doing we shall ren j
der a sen ice to the Empire, 'to
Canada, and to ourselves, to say
nothing of the poorer brethren. It
little becomes a man to grumble at
the high cost of flour when his
yard remains uncultivated, or at
the dearness of meat and eggs when
everybody can raise poultry and

The war continues to afford  intense interest.    In   Frauce, llritish
and French troops are steadily driving an ever broadening wedge  into
the German defences, and   holding
the ground won, creating a problem
that the Huns can only   solve   by
radical   measures.    The    "tanks"
apparently   must   bc   credited   for
much of  the   recent   progress,   or
rather, lor the comparatively   light
losses in making important advances     Tlie Russians on  their   front
are steadily driving onwards, slowly, bv-t  irresistablv,    The   Italians
also, keeping   up   the   drive,   are
drawing nearer and nearer to Trieste
inflicting heavy losses and keeping
large numbers of the enemy engaged.    The Roumanians, havin.  apparently  advanced   into   Transvl-
vaiiia too precipitately, have had to
retreat, fighting, back to their otv.i
fionlier.    Superior artillery possessed bv the Austro Germans on this
front is said to be tiie reasonfor the
retirement, but  at   any   rate,   the
Roumanian raid has kept the enemy
busy, and exacted much  loss.    In

forces ar�� resisting what is  part of
the German plan to envelope   Roumania, bring her thus to her knees.
and then rush back the   troops   to
other fronts.    Possibly, the   Allies
will prevent this by   increased   attacks elsewhere.    Summed up, the
position appears   to   be   that   the
Germans are taking heavy  punishment, which will increase   day   by-
day, but that they are "still   strong
enough to utilize their resources to

The City Council seem to realize
that the prevention of fire is better
than putting out a big blaze in a
theatrical manner, hence they have
purchased the chemical engine
which Mr. McPhee had on his
hands, and have ordered a number
of Pyrcnc extinguishers, which up-
pon demonstration have proved
verv efficient in putting out small
fires, with a minimum of fluid.
The Eire Wardens have started a
fire brigade, and have appointed
Jock Thompson chief. Mr. Cucksey and Clinton Wood have offered
thc use of their motorcycles in
carrying thc Pyrene extinguishers
whenever a fire occurs, It is hoped that an efficient brigade will be
formed and financed by the city.

Letter, from the Front
We have had several letters from
boys at the trout recently, One of
them says that if'..the ladies who
are knitting sox for them would
spend the money for tobacco and
send that, it would be more appreciated, as Capstan costs 56c per
tin over there, and the so'dier gets
4 pair of sox at a lime from the
(.nny supplies.
Another from Alfred Jones in
Flanders, says; "I would esteem
it a great favor if you would thank
the people for ine. who were good
eu.ugh to send socks to the Courtenay boys.
We have just been relieved from
the trenches, and are at a rest camp
for a few days, nud then we go
back to the trenches again.

The other day, writes a correspondent in Paris, as 1 was coming out of
the Metro, I found a small boy playing at sentry at the gates, He had
a stick for a gun, and was amusing
himself challenging thc passengers
lo show their papers.
When my turn came, I gave as a
password "England."
The urchin brought his "gun" to
the salute and replied with the utmost gravity: "I'ass, England, friend
of i-'iancc."
Demolished His Idols
Though not very strict Hindus, the
Gurkhas are very superstitious. It is
on record that ihe beautiful wifc of
a certain rajah of Nepaul contracted
smallpox, The rajah vowed tons of j
milk and butter sweetmeats lo lhe i
gods if they would cure her. She recovered, but when she saw her dis-
figurement she killed herself. The
rajah fell into a passion, and had all
Ills gods Vet up in a row outside his
walls. Opposilc them hc ranged his
artillery. Having abused the gods j
and reminded them of all thc milk
and sweets he had given them, he
ordered the guns lo open lire. Sonic
of thc senior officers, horrified at the
fiicrilcge, rushed shrieking away, but
after a few gunners had been cut
down the guns opened fire and the
gods were blown to bits. ��� London
