vexed question o_ "serfdom'' In German Fust Africa bus been drawn up
by the governor of the protectorate in
reply to a Relchstag resolution on desiring  the  abolition  of  serfdom   by
January 1, 11)20.   It has been the subject of much criticism in the budget
committee from Socialist and Centre
party deputies,   it says that it would
be a highly dangerous experiment to
abolish the serfdom by a fixed date.
The colonial secretary, Dr. Solf, fully
agreed with this view, and was supported by the National Liberals. Tbe
resolution   Is   extremely   unlikely   to
tuke effect.
According to tbe German law,
every native born after December,
1905, is free. The mild "serfdom"
now existing in East Africa is a survival of tribal warfare and of the
Arab conquests. In lho days ot the
prosperous slave trade centred in
Zanzibar tlie prisoners of war were
iold to dealers and carried out. of tlie

But despite the tact that .be average,
is possessed of an education that!
might be called fairly good, a very
great proportion cannot speak English; and it was to help thesa persons, male and female, that these
classes   were -Instituted  three  years
I    believe I am correct In st.-.tlng
that   such classes, although now becoming common, were never taken lip
as a civic duty instead of a phllun-
throplc.al task until Calgary   entered
tbe field.    At some    point     English
classes for foreigners hail been started as part of religious schemes, but
. never apparently hy any city itself.
The classes (.which are held at night
and  are intended    for    adults,    not
children)  nre conducted by the city
of Calgary as a branch of its very
liberal policy of technical education,
and for administrative purposes conio
under the direction of the  superintendent ot technical  education,  Mr.
T. B. Kldner. At the beginning of the
first season, two classes were held;
now there  are eleven classes, with
nine instructors, the    attendance at
which during the season just closed
was ho less than 407.
The classes are in five groups���
firstly, for beginners, consisting of
those who have been in tbe co-.inlry
under six months; secondly, for intermediate students, who have been in
the country less than one year; third
and fourth, advanced students; and
lastly, a mixed class of students at
various stages. The system used In
Imparting instruction is tlie "Berltlz,"
���which, besides being very suitable for
any person of even meagre education,
Is almost indispensable (lacking the
use of Esperanto or some such universal medium of converse)  in corn-
idly dwindling and in fifteen years
time "serfdom" will, it Ib estimated,
be extinct.

munlcatlng with students of so many \
nationalities  as  this���Scandinavians,'
Slavs, Teutons, Latins, and so forth.
ln the Berltlz system," no other language is used hut that which Is being
taught, and no translation is undertaken by the instructor. The speaking of English is thn first effort  and
then  successively  reading and  writing.   In the intermediate group, Inter- j
estlng  debates  have  been  held  and
tho keenest-interest has been manifested In the discussion of such topics as prohibition, women's  suffrage
aud the advantage or disadvantages
of oily life as compared with country
life.    That  French,  Dutch,  German,
banish,  Swedish  and Austrians  can
be brought to such pert'ec.ion    that
they can argue on controversial matters in a language'wnich until a few
mouths before had been unknown to
all of them Is, incidentally, a great
achievement, ln the advanced groups
of tlie classes, a book on civics has
been stunted, and the students have
acquired au introduction to a knowledge of the government of the' city,
the province of Alberta, the Dominion
of Canada, and the British  empire;
until,    as   one student volunteered,

Resultc at Experimental Farms
For twenty-six yearn tbe Dominion
Experimental farms have been experimenting with grain crops at the various farms and stations distributed
over Canada, trying to learn which
varieties give best results in ibo different provinces. Not only have the
best known sorts produced at other
places been grown side by side, but
at the Central farm at Otlawa new
varieties have been bred, and when
found desirable, perpetuate-i am. distributed to growers.
For the information of the Canadian farmer the more important io-
suits of the season of 1913 at the different farms have been put together
in summarized form and issued in
Bulletin No. 4. There are included in
this some recommendations as to varieties to grow, and method of production to follow that should prove of
great, service lo growers in all parts
of Canada.
Referring to "Marquis" wheat
which was bred at Ottawa, the bulletin says, "Marquis produces very
large crops, has usually good straw,
and is moro resistant to rust than
most of the common varieti_S." A
large edition of this bulletin has been
printed so that all who desire copies
may secure them by applying to the
Publications branch, Department of
Agriculture at Ottawa.

Aviators   Dream   of   Making   Trip   inj
Luxurious Aerial Pullman i
The' expressed opinion ot Mr.:
Claude Grahame White that iu twenty year:, it will be possible to cross
the Atlantic in fifteen hours, travelling in a luxurious aerial Pullman
wiih dining and sleeping facilities,
has been endorsed by several well-
known aviators.
Mr. C. 15. Hucks, tbo llrst Englishman to loop tbe loop, fcowsver,
goes so far as lo prophesy that this
milestone of progress in aeronautics
would be passed within two years
from now. lie pointed out, in an Interview, that a speed of 140 miles an
hour h. d already been attained and
recently u German airman, succeeded
in remaining in the air for over sixteen hours, and thnt u_ flight when
sixteen persons were tiiken up was
recently reported from St. Petersburg.
"Crossing ihe Atlantic," sa'ul Mr.
Hucks, "will he exactly like looping
the loo.i. First one man will do it,
then perhaps some months will
elapse before an attempt is made by
a second man, and when the second
man has been successful others will
see lhat the feat, is not. the accomplishment of just ono man, and a
whole processlou will follow."

Incorporation Commission
The enquiry into the merits of
incorporation of Courtenay was
opened,in the Board of Trade
rooms on Tuesday morning by
Commissioner Robertson.
The incorporationists were represented by Mr. McLean, of Victoria, while Mr. Heitternran appeared for the Waterworks Co,
The Commissioner decided to hear
the Incorporationists side of the
case first, and Mr. McPhee was the
first witness, who said that 1 e was
the registered owner of $64,000
worth of property in Courtenay,
and was not afraid of the high tax
bogey; had practically laid out the
townsite, and always intended that
the public utilities should belojg to
the people whenever they were
needed, Dr. Crompton said that
nearly all the opposition came from
t.ie Waterwo.ks Company. He

Mr. P, ��. Anderton came to
Courtenay 3 years ago, no town
then. The station is practically
the centre of the townsite. No one
has any idea of the good the dredging of the river will do.
Mr, Peterson also gave facts and
figures why Courtenay should be
incorporated. Messrs. Kerton and
Johnston, of the Lake Trail, alio
spoke  in  favor of incorporation.
Mr. J, B, Holmes had signed

himself, as he was a speculator and

Mr. Hill, of the Canada Pipe Co. said
his company were out for profits. They
would take stock for deferred payments.
Thought a private company could build
quicker and cheaper than a city,
Mr. J. R. Johnston was opposed to Incorporation because it would raise the
license and taxes on his hotel. He had
no use for the water company's water, had
plenty of his own. He had bought the
land along the river on spec, and thought
he had the best wharf site in town, even
if he did pay M000 an acre for it.
D, Kilpatrick was opposed to incorporation and was not particular
whether the Water Company took
his water record or. not, it was
worth the $4000 to him. Area too
large, should have taken in more
land on other side of the river.
Mrs. Lewis said she was opposed
to Incorporation, she owned 3
houses ; the taxes were $3; thought
they would be raised. Mr, Lewis
owned the hotel and townsite and
did not want to sell lots.
Alex Urquhart was also against
Incorporation, his land was being
used for growing potatoes, and was
assessed at 5500 per acre.
M. Perez and J. B. Holmes also
spoke against Incorporation.
Wild Swans Nesting
On The
Two wild swans have been frequenting the Flats for the last six
weeks and have been seen by quite
a rumber of people. They are
quite tame and eau be approached
within 30 yards. It is to be hoped
that these birds will not be disturbed, next month is their breeding month and should they raise
any youag it ls the intention of
Game Warden Dawley to apply to
the Chief Game Warden to have
some of the young swans placed in
some suitable water near the town.
This has beeu done in several places
before and the young birds became
quite tame in a very short time.
Warden Dawley would also remind
gunmen there is a very heavy
penalty for shooting swans during
the close season.

During the preceding week track !
gangs had been gelling tbe lines in

to come. Earlier in the year tlie
whole of the equipment bad been
overhauled in the .shops of the
company and so efficiently had
everything been arranged that notwithstanding a lay off of six and a
half months and in many instances
with strangers in the crews, the
first days performance was equal to
the demand made upon it.
Rome 70 cars were loaded and
the first trainload of the year despatched to the booming grounds.
To the uninitiated this may not
mean umc.i but to install machines

with such response, shows efficiency
in its organization, aud willingness
on the part of the workers. Within

Accidents to Mine Workers
In round figures there are some
seven hundred and thirty thousand
underground mine workers in the
United States, and during 1913
twelve were killed every working
day in the year, The fatalities are
increasing very rapidly, and in 1913
amounted to 425 more than in 1912'
The greater proportion of both
fatalities and minor accidents, it is
claimed, could have been avoided
by the installation of safety devices
and more efficient inspection.
To catch burglars an Englishman
has patented a mechanism to drop
a person who steps in front of a
safe at certain hours iuto a pit,
doors closing over him.
The Result of
Woman's Suffrage
A municipal election has been
held in the State of Illinois for the
second time this spring. In the
first one, with the help of the votes
of the women who had just been
enfranchised, one thousand saloons
were voted out of distance. At
the second one, seventy-eight more
license signs are ready to be used
as tombstones for defunct businesses. The contest was held in forty
municipalities; twenty-one went
"dry" and nineteen "wet." Now
the liquor interests in Illinois are
going to protest the results of both
elections on the ground that the bill
giving the women the right to participate in them was unconstitutional. There is little chance for the
success of such a contention, but,
should it win in the courts, there
is no doubt that the legislature of
Illinois, which gave a good majority
for women's suffrage, would soon
correct the error, Probably the
real purpose of the liquor interests
in raising the question is to secure
a short extension of the life of the
licenses that it is proposed to cancel
while the case is being tried.
United States Is

the United States is not only reducing its exports but is increasing

Food articles showing largest increases in importations were beef,

of Ihe deepest significance had been
possible by its use. But the door was
locked, and she had no key.

went in at the gale and felt her way,

When Doctors Failed"
Mrs. Edwin Martin, Ayer's Cliff, Que., writes:���
"Before I began taking Nerve Food I was in a terrible
condition, dizzy spells came over me, and I would
fall to the floor, and I could not as much as sweep the floor without fainting unless they
took me out in the air. Now I can wash and work a lot, and your Medicine helped me
when the Doctors failed.    I felt as though it was a God-send to me.
1 hope you will use my name wherever you like so that if there are any others
suffering as I have done, they may be benefited by using your Medicine for it will do all
it claims to do. I think it is the best of Medicines. Dr. Chase's Ointment is the best
that can be had for Piles."
Restores Wasted Nerves
Few people realize what an important part the nerves play in the condition of the
health, and many doctors feel helpless when the nerves go wrong because they do not
understand diseases of the nerves or their treatment.
If you read the letters which appear in this paper almost daily from people who
have been rescued from discouraging and distressing nervous diseases by use ot Dr.
Chase's Nerve Food, you will soon believe in the efficiency of this treatment.
When headaches, sleeplessness, irritability and nervousness make your life miserable, be warned of the approach of nervous prostration, paralysis and locomotor ataxia,
and restore the feeble, starved nerves by using Dr. Chase's Nerve Food. No treatment
is so certain to benefit you. 50 cents a box, 6 for $2.50. All dealers or Edmanson,
