Tt is becoming more and more
nc.essary that everyone practise
rigid economy during -the period of
the war, iu order to conserve the
resources of the Empire.
This ecouo ny should be especially emphasized in the purchase of

useful than some Electrical appliance to lighten the labor of the

Britain's New Dreadnoughts
Marvellous Products of Naval Work-

The Providence Journal, in a dis-
ptitcli fruin London, saysi
"llritish admiralty officials tire delighted with the marvellous work that1
lias been done in Hriiish dockyards in

Wonderful results, which have not up ,

ever  been  placed  on   lhe  water,  are
850  feet  lone;,  with  a  speed of over
thirty    knots,    and arc armed    with
twelve lS-inch guns.    No such armament   as   this   has   ever  before  been |

An acre in London is the dearest

over ground in lhc heart of lhc city
has set n figure of $16,250,000 pel

there are only three acres in lhal

There arc places on Qu.Ccn Victoria, Upper Thames, St. 'Mary-at_

World's Largest Flag
At the rc-tmion of thc Grand Army-
held in Washington in 1915, whal is
believed to be the largest Hag in the
world was carried in the parade by
the delegation from Canton, Ohio,
says a writer in St. Nicholas. It
measured 133 feet in length by 80 feet
in width. The stripes wcrc ovcr six-
feet wide, while the stars in the union
measured five feet across from point
to point. The weight of the flag was
over half a ton, while 117 men wcrc
required to carry il along lhc line of
inarch. Morc than 20,000 hands set
the necessary stitches, while sewed
inlo the stars arc lhe names of over

It Can Only Be Cured By Thoroughly Enriching thc Blood Supply
Not so long ago rheumatism was
looked upon as a paiu iu lhe muscles j
or joints brought on by exposure to I
dampness or had weather. Now doc-'
tors know that it is rooted ill the
blood, and while exposure may slarl
the pain, nothing but lhe removal of
lhc poisonous acid from lhc blood
will cure the trouble, It is a wasle
of both time and money to Iry to
cure rheumatism with liniments,
poultices or anything that only goes
skin deep. Rubbing lotions into the
skill may give temporary relief, but it
actually helps to circulate thc poisonous acid more freely and thus in
the end increases lhc trouble, and
perhaps leaves the sufferer permanently crippled. The one cure, the
only cure, for rheumatism is to drive
the acid which causes thc trouble out
nl the blood. To do this no other
remedy can equal Dr. Williams Pink
Pills, which actually make new blood,
sweeps out the poisonous acid, loosens the stiffened, aching joints, and
bring good health and comfort. Here
is the proof. Mr. Joseph Crottse, of
Nincvah, "*.'. S., says: "For several
years 1 was severely afflicted with
rheumatism. The trouble seemed to
locate in all the joints in my body,
and niy suffering at times was most
intense, and the disease greatly interfered with my activity. 1 doctored
steadily for a long time, but the trou-j
blc was obstinate and did not yield!
in the least to the doctors' treatment. |
One day a friend 'told mc of some
cures of rheumatism by the use of Dr.
Williams Pink Pills and strongly advised mc to try them. I did so, and
to my great surprise eight boxes:
completely cured me of thc trouble,!
and I was as supple, active and free,
from pain as ever 1 had been in my I
life. Better still, I have never felt a
symptom of the trouble since."
Vou can get these pills from any
medicine dealer or by mail at 50 cents
a box or six boxes for $2.50 from thc
Dr. Williams Medicine Co., Brock-

In an eastern city a pastor of a
colored Baptist church consulted a
plumber and stcamfittcr about the
cost of pulling in a baptistry. The
estimate was soon furnished and the
figure was regarded as satisfactory.
"But," said the plumber, "this covers only the tank and the water supply. Of course, you will want some
sort of arrangement to heat the water." But thc colored pastor had a
truly economic mind, and his own
ideas of religion also, for he-promptly dissented. "You see," said hc to
thc plumber, "I don't 'low to baptize nobody in that there baptistry

Does Advertising Pay ?

that prove that 84 per cent, of the
failures are among the non-advertisers. The merchant who docs not
believe in the use of printers' ink has
never advertised right. The failure to
produce results is not chargeable
against advertising, but against the
manner in which it is done. Advertising is the modern creative force,

produced two blades of grass where

"Canadian war films," the Montreal
Gazelle's correspondent in London
says, "promise to enrich war funds

battle of the Somme pictures cleared
only $1011,0(10, it is understood, but it
is confidently predicted more will be
realized from the Canadian pictures,
which will be exhibticd soon on both
sides of thc Atlantic. Application
has also been received from Australia
and South Africa for the views, which
have some special features.
"Sir Max Aitken has been given!

will remain the property of thc government.
"Col. Maurice Alexander (Montreal), of the Canadian slalT in ling-

These are golden words which
those who arc responsible for our

how Canada deals with the problem.
We may learn much from the admirable system which has been established by the Dominion Government,
it lias been able to hold ils own ag

ope.    The German  generals and  thc
newspapers through  which  ihe Wil-
hclmstrassc vents ils spile and hat-
red against  England did not fail to
make mockery of "Kitchener's army"
and to treat it, if not as a negligible
quantity (no, they did not go quite]
that  far),  at  least  as an  adversary
that  wotlJrUSc  much   easier  to  deal
with than 'he others.   They pretended to bc verv little concerned about
Read today the communiques in
which the kaiser's general headquarters is forced to admit the English

like that of Merr von Bcthmann-Hotl-
��cg; it has become many slops
lower. Not merely is the Hriiish
army no longer negligible, or pretty
nearly negligible; it has become an
object of fear; not merely has its
improvised character not rendered it
incapable of measuring itself against
the best instructed and best-commanded troops iu the world; it is inflicting   reverses   upon   them   which

defy the arsenals and factories of
I Germany. As for our armies, they
are worthy of onc another. They arc
equal in courage, determination and
heroism, No non-success can depress their spirit; their will to win
is unshakable. Enthusiasm is theirs;
they hurl themselves eagerly upon
the enemy, who can neither hold
ground nor compute the number of
their dead and the prisoners left in
our hands! Surely, it all speaks for
itself; yet it is but the' commencement.
Such is Great Britain's share in thc
great war. If you in London gladly

France and the new glory she has
won, no less do wc in Paris hail the
example of thc allied and friendly nation, which, by a phenomenon unique
in the world's history, has succeeded
in raising herself in a few short
months to a height of organization,

People   of   Germany   Do
Thinking for Themselves
Let no one be deceived. Tht
cialist political parly of Germany, thc
four millions of the Social Democracy
and their leaders, count for absolutely nothing in the conflicl now raging.
The kaiser, the general sinf-, and lhc
leaders of the Junker party in the
Bundcsrat arc more interested in
what some unknown senator or representative says aboul Germany in
the congress of the I'nited Stales
than in what the Socialists say In thc
Reichstag, There has becn much
nonsi use printed about this matter in
Lct me repeat���knowing the German Socialist movement perhaps as
well as anybody in America���let the
working people and their leadership
in the Allied countries bc warned
against fraud. Militarism, war and
schrcckliehkeit might have been and
were expected of the kaiser and lhc
Linkers. Schcidcmaiin, Sudckum,
David, and their 4,000,000 of mentally
delinquent followers held out olhcr
hopes. These Socialist leaders of
Germany have been most contemptible traitors to their following, lo
lhe past of Iheir party, and to every
decent principle of human civilization.
It cannot be repeated too many
limes���the people of Germany do ik>
political thinking. They are possessed
of absolutely no individual conscience in public matters of any sort.
And as regards every aspect of foreign relations the German Socialist
party is exactly the same as the
olhcr parties of Germany, except
lhal ils leaders are more dishonest
and disloyal to principle. It is, of
course, with profound regret that,
both of my parents having been Germans, 1 have been brought to 'hese
conclusions by thc facts. ��� Frank

lines. At first, the general idea was
that convalescent homes, where dis-
I charged soldiers would spend a short
! lime for vest and refreshment, would
be the chief requirement, and scores
of houses and hundreds of workers
wcrc placed at the, disposal of the
Commission. But this idea was soon
dispelled when it was found that thc
treatment of the disabled soldiers was
a more serious and lengthy business.
Months or even weeks spent in the
atmosphere of such a home would
tend to injure rather than strengthen
the physical and moral fibre. Lct us
hear what Mr. J. S. McLennan, a
member of the Commission, has to
say on this subject in his introduction to the Commission's special bulletin:���
The supply of comforts which in
many cases were luxurious, the relaxation of discipline, the treating
of men as onc treats a civilian patient in the interval between illness
and the resuming of ordinary occupation, which might do no harm if
the experience was lo be counted
in days, are most    seriously dctri-
The whole system, which I have
sketched in thc barest outline, is
quite admirable, and fully realizes the
object of the Military Hospitals Commission-which Mr. McLennan derjnes
iu these words:
Thc aim of thc Commission is to
do its best for the physical and
economic well-being ot the man,

his country a service not h.ss important than those of the tiring line,
namely that, instead of being an
idle ward of the State, he becomes
a shining example to the yountr, of
self-dependence, of courage, and
perseverance in overcoming disabilities.
It would be an excellent thing if
-ye had a system similar to this, and
based upon the same sound principles,
established in these islands.

my eyes do not water any more. At night

that thousands who wear glasses can now discard them in a reasonable lime and multitudes

Judging from the unprecedented
heavy deliveries of poultry on the
central eastern markets so early iu
the season, it would appear that
farmers and producers generally
are not only depleting their Hocks
unwarrantably but also rushing
them to the market in ati-uiifuiishcd
condition . As a result, tiie current
price of chickens is much below
normal value at the present time,
iu comparison with the prices of
other meats, This is directly due
to the overloading of the   market,
With the brisk enquiry for Canadian poultry from Great Britain,
it is expected by exporters that the
demand tor well finished, good
quality stock will be very keen,
din i.ik the coming winter, Besides'8**"*'
there will be a food demand for
home consumption. The price for
Well-finished birds continues firm,

In the discussion; the crops that
will be dealt with will include corn
Cereals. Root, Vegetable and Flower seeds, and Seed Potatoes.
If possible, arrangements will be
made for the Minister of Agriculture, Hon, John O iver. or for the
Deputy Minister Mr W. E. Scott,
to preside at this meeting. Failing
this, the Department will be represented by Mr. W. T, McDonald,
Live Stock Commissioner,
A large number of cash prizes
will be given although the fair is
not being held with the sole object
in view of encouraging, by offering
prize money, those who are growing
the best seed, but rather with a
view to advertising the fact that
British Columbia can and does
grow seed equal, and in many cas.
es superior to that which can be
bought outside the province.
The prizes are offered as an inducement to growers to prepare exhibits for the fair with special care.

who prepares anything for exhibition has a better knowledge of that
particular rthing than lie could
otherwise obtain No farmer having seed for sale cau do better thriti

In the November numb.r of the
Agricultural Journal, issued hy tbe
Department of Ayricu.ture, Victoria
Mr, H. G. English Chief Soil and
Crop Instructor, pointed out that
in Britisii Celumbia the farmers
import thousands of dollars worth
of seed every year,
"Farmers do not seem to realize
as yet" writes Mr. English, "that
they are losing money each year
they plant imported seed in preference to home grown acclimatized
seed, Consequently, the demand
for home grown seed is small and
seed merchants do not trouble to
stock It'
Another reason for the lack of
demand for home grown seed is
that few farmers know just who
the seed growers are in the province.
It seems that those who have been
growing seect in the past have been
doing so on a siua.l scale, only such
as would not warrant extensive advertising. Thus, while some farmers might have ��� wished to secure
this acclimatized seed, they did not
know which way to turn to secure
The third and probably the most
important reason why so much
seed is imported annually is that

Presently the lady's maid cried out:
"Look!    She's coining to."

comments and ejaculations of the

��� As (or Lord Eastling, he was so
certain that something of deep nio-
.menthad occurred, thai his attention
was centred, not on his sister, bul on
his brother-in-law.
Al last I.ady Ursula spoke.
Very faintly she uttered the words:
"What time is il?"
There was a little laughter, and
she got two or three answers at once.
I hen, suddenly, she sal up. Pnul
heard thc movement without looking
Then there was silence. There
must hr, lie knew, something ill her
expression which imposed silence on
ihose around her. The moments
seemed to drag heavily, as ii Ihey
were hours.
Then a sobbing ery, not loud, bul
piteous and hcart-picrcing, reached
his cars. He looked round and saw
that she was on her feet, erect, wilil-
cyed, terrible.
She had forgotten that they were
not alone. She had forgotten everything else in the returning horror of
that moment, when the terrible hew
knowledge she had obtained about
ber husband rushed hack into her
lie made a movement as if to advance towards her, trying lo smilc��
to congratulate. But her look checked
him, and he stopped.
For an instant she remained with
her eyes fixed upon him, and his own
could not meet them. He looked
down, waiting for her sentence,
It came in two whispered words,
which seemed to strike him like
tongues of flame���
"Syd Toinkinson!"
There was another silence.
Then he raised his head and tried
to speak���
"May I have a few moments? May
I give an explanation?" he mumbled,
speaking in the tones of one who is
wholly humiliated and abject.
But for answer she suddenly turned to her brother, and instinctively
stretched out her arms.
Lord Eastling, who was indeed
close at hand, stepped up to her and
I put his supporting arm round her.
She looked up into his face, tried lo
i smile, and whispered "Thank you,"
land never turned her head away from
his face.
Paul understood that he. was dis-
> missed, sentenced, and with his head
bent, without uttering a word, he
went quietly out of the room. Half
an hour later Lord Eastling went in
search of his brother-in-law, and
found him pacing quickly up and
down the long library, smoking furiously. Hc turned with alacrity as the
young man came in, and greeted him
in quite a buoyant tone.
"Hal" he cried, "I thought 1 should
scc something of you presently, Eastling.   Come in, and sit down."
Lord Eastling looked like the guilty man, and Paul Payne was assuming all the airs of easy confidence
which sat so well upon him, so that
nobody would have guessed, on seeing them together, the real position
in which they stood to each other.
"Now, I'm quite aware lhat you are
justified if you don't choose to answer mc, but slill I have a right to
lask: 'How is���my wife?'"
Lord Eastling frowned and answer-
led stiffly���
! "She is as well as you can expect a
lady of her character, temperament
I ami breeding to bc, when she has just
i had to learn that she is lied for life

i     Taul shrugged his shoulders.
"Well," he said, "you arc justified,
I suppose, in anything of that sort
that you may care to say. And I cer-
i tainly shan't deny your right to speak
as harshly as you please. After all,
hard words break no bones, and
there's nothing else in mc left to
break, is there?"
Lord Eastling moved uneasily. He
haled to have thc appearance of kicking a man who was down, but at the
same time he was uaturally overflowing with indignation at the effects of
the shock upon his sister.
There was a pause, and then Paul
"What has she said to you?"
"She told mc a man came in ovcr
the park wall, accused you of keeping
hack properly wliicli was his, and
'gave her a paper to read which opened her eyes to your real position."
I "Yes. This," said Paul, briefly, as
lhc took out of his pocket the fatal
agreement, which he handed to Lord
: Eastling,
The young man read it in disgust.
I "And my sister had to read this?
I No wonder she couldn't stand it,"

pals    of mine, 1 have    been feeling
what I  believe    good people rail remorse, as I own 1 never fell it before."
"Remorse! Yet you stole Mrs.
Finclidcn's pearls!"
"What could 1 do; These two men,
Cane and Evans, wanted their share
of the Vienna jewels, and 1 couldn't
give that up without exciting comment among your people. So I bought
some niork pearls in town ��� very
good ones, by thc way���anil 1 substituted them for three rows of Mrs.
Finclidcn's necklace. 1 got helped by
a little person who was wholly unaware of what 1 wanted, by lhe way."
"The maid?"
"Yes. She's a fool, not a lliicf. She
knew nothing, but thought I was attracted hy her pretty eyes. That's
how 1 got hold o( the necklace."
"You could carry on thc same dishonest   tricks,   even   when   you  were
under a friend's roof, and in the same
[house wilh your wife, my sister!"
I    "1 had no choice.    I wauled to get
free.    Can't you understand how one
step in such a shady career as mine
has been leads inevitably, hopelessly,
to another?    Say what you like about
mc, you can't be too harsh.    Indeed,
I have no reason to complain of your

I    "That's the most Infamous part of

Paul's frier was convulsed. H<

the emotion on the face ol the other

l "Y'ou see, it's so much lhc more
I hard upon her that she liked you."
I    Paul nodded.
"1 know. And I liked her. 'Pon
my soul, I never thought I should
care for any woman as I've cared for
her. She's made me feci everything
differently.   I married her as a good
'spec,' I confess it. But I swear to
you, Eastling, if this discovery is a
blow to her, it's nothing to the blow
this exposure has brought on mc."
Lord Eastling moved about the
room uneasily.
"What's to bc done?" said he. "She
won't even see you."
Paul looked up quickly.
"All right," said he, drawing himself up. "Perhaps that's just as well.
I'm sorry she can't get free; but,
with a woman like her, I don't think
it mailers so much in one way. She
would never have married again.
She's not lhat sort of woman."
Thr ryes of the two men met in
frank recognition of a truth wliicli
both acknowledged and admired,
"No," said Eastling. "That's true.
Now, what is troubling ine is Ihr

Paul shrugged his shoulders,

Minard's   Liniment Cures   Garget in
Hunting Trip on a Wet Day Brings
Painful Results
Once upon a lime Charles Mullen,
of Philadelphia, went gunning. It
was a dismal rainy day, and long exposure lo cold and wet brought on a
severe attack of rheumatism. He was
confined to his home.
A friend recommended Sloan's Liniment, citing his own case as evidence
of its effectiveness. Mullen bought a
bottle and applied it to his aching
limbs. Soon improvement was noticed and he was able to return to business.
Mr. Mullen writes: "Since that experience 1 have never been without
Sloan's Liniment in the medicine
chest." You will find it soothes
bruises, sprains, toothache and relieves lame back, neuralgia, in fact
all external pains. At all druggists,

Good-Bye, Old Backache
Nerviiine Will Fix You!
Stiffness Is Rubbed Right Out; Kvcry
Sign of Pain Disappears
(Ice whiz���think of ii!
No more stomach dosing necessary
to cure your lame back.
Every trace of lameness, every bit
of stillness, every sign of weakness in
the back's muscles can he rubbed
away for all time to come, by good
old "Nerviiine."
No oilier liniment can do the work-
so quickly, can penetrate, so deeply,
can bring case and comfort to thc
back-weary sufferer as Nerviiine in-
variahly does.
Backache isn't the only malady
Nerviiine Is quick to cure. For lumbago or sciatica you would go far to
lind relief so speedy as Nerviiine
gives. For chronic rheumatism there
are pain-dcslroyitig properties in Nerviiine lhat give it first rank. The way
it limbers up a slilT joint and takes
soreness out of strained or rheumatic
muscles is simply a wonder.
If you have an ache or a pain anywhere, if ymi have a sore back, a still
neck, a still joint, a strained muscle���
if you havc lumbago, congested chest
or sore throat, just Iry Nerviiine.
Hub it on plentifully���it won't blister, il can't do anything hut cure you
quickly. The large SOc family size
bottle, is the most economical, of
course, but you can, from any dealer,
also get the. 25c small size of Nerviiine, the king of all pain-relieving remedies.
"Well Hit"
A capital yarn is going the rounds
about the Duke of Connaiighl, which
is too good as a piece of fiction to
pass over.
When opening a new rifle range in
Manitoba, His Royal Highness was
invited to fire thc first shot. Something distracted him as he fired, and
it was plain to everyone present, including the Duke himself, that it was
a bad miss. When the target was
brought along for inspection it was
found, however, that the bullet hole
was right in the centre of thc "hull."
The Duke was much amused, but hc
found out afterwards that the range
officer had prepared it the night before!
A Contra-t
The British and German Method of
Treating Prisoners of War
Zeppelin raiders who have fallen to
their death in England or have surrendered as prisoners are being treated with a humanity, even a chivalry,
which is in thc highest degree creditable to the English people, in view of
thc provocation to make them thc
subject of reprisals. Captain Fryatt,
���who did only his duty in defending
Iiis ship from a submarine attack, and
whose status was clearly lhat of a
prisoner of war, was shot by the Germans, though his resistance to capture had not cost a single German
life. The Zeppelin raiders, on the
oilier hand, wcrc slayers of non-combatants against all the rules of warfare. Yet no personal vengeance has
been taken upon the living, and thc
dead have been buried with the rites
of the church and with English military men in attendance. If the Germans could stop haling England long
enough, they might fee! a little sense
of shame at the contrast.���Philadelphia Public Ledger.

how exceedingly well the battalion
has done, aud hotr valuable the
men recruited in your district have
During the period of organizing
and training I was often very great-
fnl to the people of Courtenav and
Comox for many kindnesses extended to lhe soldiers since leaving
Canada, and after having seen the
boys on their mettle iu three separate engagements I am constantly
feeling grateful for the type of men
furnished me, They have turned
out magnificieut soldiers, ready,
willing, and hard as nails. And
this brings we to another point

exceedingly fortunate we were to
have hail our training camp iu such

battalions were training in cities

kind of open air life on the Spit, and

we had to contend made the finest

Well. Mr, Mayor, I have not the
time to write you in detail about
the work your boys have done, but
I trust that the.time wiil come when
I shall be able to run up to Courtenay aud renew many pleasant acquaintances, and then I shall be
glad to tell you more. In the

Farmers Unite
A meeting which will have far
reaching effects if its promotive expectations are realized, was held ill
the Agricultural Hall on Friday
evening last, when the fanners of
the district met and decided to fall
in line and join with other farmers
of the Cowichan district in forming
a farmers union. Capt. Vigors occupied the chair, and Messrs H.
O, Hegelson, of Metclicsin, and W
Patterson gave short addresses setting forth the advantages to be derived from forming such "an association. There are many things
cropping up now which demand
remedial legislation. A.s an instance, a few years ago milk was
hauled from Cobble hill to Victoria
for ioc a can. empties returned
free. Now it is 25c , and ioc for
bringing back the empties. IYand
taxation has trebled within tlie past
few years, and now when the war
is over and more meney has to be
raised the farmer may expect to
have his taxes again raised in some
manner, and it is now dp to them
to see that they do not bear more
than their just portion of the
common burden. The middleman s o came in for some attention. After a little discussion it
was decided to form a branch of the
Union here and about 35 persons
joined. A committee was appointed to canvass the various districts
in the community aud wheu through
probably 150 or 200 members will
have been secured. Mr. Geo Hardy was appointed secretary-treas.
pro tern. A meeting is being held
at Little River this evening to discuss the matter with the farmers
A most distressing shooting accident occurred on Sunday afternoon
when King Reise shot and instantly killed Wallace McBride. They
were accompanied by Reg- Car-
withen, and W, Ftirnell, of the E.
& N. Ry, and were hunting in the
