their fences and other very conspicuous places. If they won't allow
citizens of Courtenay to hunt wild

of damaging cr.ps is past, how can
thev consistently ask us to let their
cattle pasture free on our streets
and lands when our crops are growing in our gardens? Consistency,

John Bright, an eminent British statesman, who was
an advocate for Temperance Reform said that, while he believed in reform, he did not believe in any radical and harsh
measures, " Business,'' said he, "established by law should
be defended and protected by law." John Bright, who was a
Quaker, asserted the principle of compensation.
There are less prisoners, paupers, insanity, and more
children burn in the wet than in thc dry states, The figures

Number children to 100 fanialies

The children born in the wet states, accordidg to learned scientists, arc slightly greater in weight and in general
health better than those of teetotal parents. Just note the
difference between Liebig's Cocoa Beef Tonic bought at the

The regular May meeting of the
City Council was held on Monday
evening; Aid. Carroll being the
only absentee.
Aid. Hurford reported that he
had prepared a draft electric light
agreement which was rather Ieng

special meeting. After considerable discussion it was decided to
hold a special meeting later.
The question of a Roll of Honor
again came up and Aid Hurford,
Rev. Laycock and Rev, Menzies

The account re the horse case on
motion of Aid. McKenzie was left
over for further consideration. He
also objected to a charge of $2 for
repairing the electric light wires,
claiming that the company should
keep their lines in repair.

the street lights was out and that
he had spoken to the manager
about it, and he found that a broken wire was the cause of the light
failing to shine.    If the council ie*

Hardening of the Arteries
An Interesting Explanation of How This Dreaded
Condition is Brought About.
You ta.ke out the garden lioao in the spt'inj.', turn on the waler, nnd il llio rubber litis
got bard and brittle the tubing bursts aud water spurts oul in till directions.
The arteries nf tho human body may be likened lo small rubber pipes, which i^o
everywhere tht'Ongh the body mid carry blood to tho bauds mid I'oet, as well ns lo tha
nerves, muscles and vital organs.   They carry nil the blood in the human system, and
it' this blood is burdened with the poisons left over when
thc liv 'i' ami kidneys are not properly performing their
filtering work, these poisons C��rni a deposit on the inside
walls of the arteries,
Thc deposil  thus formed gradually thickens und
bar lens the walls of the arteries.   The liny blood'vessols
of the liver are affected, and thei  comes that fatal
disease -cirrhosis of the liver. The cells nf the kidneys
become starved for want of blood, and
Bright's disease gets its start,
In health the arteries have the elasticity
of rubber, and expand, contract or elongate, ns rerjnirerl by the demands of the
blood pressure. ITardeiiod, thc arleries
nve like so niiieli brittle rubber tubing.
The Wood pressure comes on, the tubing
bursts, nnd the resulting blood dol on tho
brain causes apoplexy,
It will lie plainly seen that tho
cause of trouble is in thc inefflcient
condition of the liver nml Iddno" s,
When tli  littering organs urn
kept healthy uml active, and thc
bowels regular in the removal of
waste matter, (here is i banco
for siieli ill', adfitl conditions us
hardening of thc arteries bring
As in nil forms of serious ilis-
eiisi', prevention is Ihc nnly wise course lo follow. Vnii can positively depend on Dr. Chase's
Kidney-Liver I'ills to awaken llic nclioti of liver
and kidneys, and also ensure thc regularity of
movement of the bowels, ll is only by the activity of these organs tbnt thc blond enn he kept
pure tiinl free from uric acid nnd oilier sub-
stauces which form deposits in the arteries and
ut other points in the human system, causing
pain, suffering und serious disease.
When you think of lit" scores of common
ill*, such ns colds, indigestion, biliousness, head-
itches, baeknebos, etc., which arise from n torpid
condition of these organs, you will better under
stand tlm reason why Dr, Chase's Kidney-Liver
I'ills are the favorite family medicine in many
thousands of homes. By keeping the liver, kidneys and bowels unlive they cure the common
ills of life, nnd prevent serious disease. Op" pill

GAIN or no gain the cause before the farmers of Canada is as clear as it was last
year-���they must produce abundantly in order to meet the demands that may
be made, and I believe this to be especially true in regard to live stock, the world's
supply of which must be particularly affected in this vast struggle."���HON.
MARTIN BURRELL, Minister of Agriculture.
LIVE STOCK���The herds and flocks of Kurope
have been greatly reduced. When thc war is over
there will be a great demand for breeding stock.
Canadian farmers should keep this in mind.
MEATS���In 1915 Great Britain Imported 004,508
tons of beef, mutton and lamb, of which 364,245
tons came from without the Empire. Out of
430,420 ions of beef only 104,907 tons came from
within thc Empire.
The demands of the Allies for frozen beef,
canned beef, bacon and hams will increase rather
than diminish. Orders arc coming to Canada.
Thc decreasing tonnage space available will give
Canada an advantage if we have the supplies.
DAIRYING���Home consumption of milk, butter
and cheese has increased of late years. The war
demands for cheese have been unlimited. The
Canadian cheese exports from Montreal in 1916
were nearly $0,500,000 over 1914. Prices at
Montreal-Cheese : January 1915, \&% to 17
cents; January 1916, 18}-{ to 18). cents.
Butter: January 1915, 24 to 28Ji cents;
January 1910, 32 to 33 cents.
EGGS���Canada produced $30,000,000 worth of
eggs in 1915 and helped out Great Britain in the
shortage. Shippers as well as producers have a
duty and an opportunity in holding a place in
that market.
Tens of thousands of Canada's food producers have enlisted and gone to the front. It is only fair to them
that their home work shall be kept up as far as possible. The Empire needs all the food that we can produce
in 1916.
