Cook  by  Wire
Electricity provides the cleanest, the
most sanitary and the most hygenic
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
glass door, porcelain splashers
The fire risk is lessened because there are no open
We will gladly give you information on rates and
electric ranges

The Cumberland Islander reports Mr. J. Burtt
Morgan, of Victoria, manager of the Vancouver Island Branch of the Great West Life Assn, spending a week in the city in the interests of the Co.
It should also have reported that Mr. J. Burtt
Morgan as President of the Vancouver Island Peoples Prohibition Movement was at the same time
doing his best to get the people to vote for the first
time���according to The Week for 27th--in tne history of British Columbia, on a measure framed
entirely by thePeoples Prohibition Movement representatives. One clause permits the manufacture
of liquor in the Province without let or hinderance
subject only to the procuring of a Dominion license
which liquor may be exported and re-imported
without any restrictions as to quantity, but it must
be consumed in our homes. The freight charges
will bar out light beer, so that it is obvious this one
clause alone will encourage " hard " drink against
light drink. Dosen't this clearly show what a lot of
ignoramus fools the Peoples Prohibition Association is run by? But what is most surprising is that
the Hon. Bowser should submit such bosh to the
people to vote upon.

During the pasl few weeks there
have been certain rumors that the
navy, owing io wain of foresight in

of admiralty, was nol In co positive
a position of superiority as had
been supposed. Some naval "experts," who may, we think, be ae

seem to have been infected by the
disease of "cold feet." Thus because
who were never before Inclined to

wonder whether all was going well,
Something more than vague misgivings has been disseminated nol

therefore lime thai the bogies were
knocked over lhe head, and this extremely useful and salutary act was
performed by Mr. Balfour In his
admirable speeches iu the house of
commons. He did not boast; he did
nol pretend thai surprises are Impossible; but be tiitl offer an account
of his stewardship, which ought to
convince and reassure every man
who can keep his mind free from
jianic. We have, read a great many
speeches on the navy. We. have
never read speeches which seemed
to us to be in a rigllter spirit than
those of Mr. Balfour. They contained an explicit guarantee that everything Is being done which an intelligent wideawake, and energetic
board ought to do. More than that
we cannot ask.
It is very easy for a newspaper to
Invent Its own particular bogy, or,
lei us say. to believe in a particular
bogy on the strength of some slender but attractive evidence, and then
to say: "Here is this appalling
danger. We are only performing a
public duty in demanding to know
what steps, if any. the admiralty ar,
taking to meet this particular challenge. -Mr. Balfour very rightly did
not attempt to deal with the x bogy,
the y bogy, and the z bogy In detatil,
In bis review of the situation he
simply assured us. in effect, that
the navy was being made as strong
��is possible, and as well prepared as
naval ingenuity can devise, lo meet
all conceivable risks, lie must have
convinced all those who needed to
be convinced and were open to conviction, that If tho navy cannot be

there never was a time when il more
thoroughly deserved success. I.et us
ciuote Mr. Balfour's words as to the
condition of the fleets:    .
Tltey tire much stronger than th y

stronger    than     they     were   twelve'
months ago,    and  their excess over i

every    kind    of    ship  available    In

largely increased,    since the war began.    Well, then, let us dismiss vain ;
and empty  fears.    As  I  asid  yesterday,  war  is  necessarily and  always j

you produce the more you can save.   Producing and saving are war-service.
Make Your Labour Efficient
In war-time do not waste time and energy on unimportant and unprofitable work. Economize labour.
Put off unproductive work till after the war, and, if
possible, help in producing something needed now. Let us not waste labour. Canada
needs it all. If possible help to feed the Allies. Make your backyard a productive garden.
Cultivate it with a will.    Make your labour count for as much as possible.

There should be no waste in war-time. Canada could
pay the annual interest on her war expenditure out
of what we waste on our farms, in our factories, in
Oil'.' homes. Every pound of food saved from waste is as good as a pound of increased
production. The way for a nation to save is for every individual to save. France is strong
to-day because of thrift in time of peace. The men and women of Great Britain are not
only "doing " but are learning to " do without."
