When is a Kitchen
Not a "Kitchen"?
With a Hughes Electric Range, it
is a parlor. Just as cool and clean
and airy.
The modern "kitchen" deserves a
better name. In truth, it is a cooking apartment���as bright and tidy
as any other room. For since the
perfection of electric cooking, all
the clumsy ugliness and every
trace of dirt and soot and gas
have gone.
The modem cook works with her
head and not her hands. She has
hours of time that were never
hers before. Simple figures show
that in a life time five solid years
of drudgery are saved by this
practical invention.
And that isn't all. Consider the sacrifice of
happiness, health and youthful charm. Old-
fashioned methods have truly exacted a heavy

Beauty fades fast over a hot, dirty coal stove. Gas positively poisons! In combustion, gas takes up oxygen and gives out poisonous fumes. That is why plants
will not live where gas is burned. *
' Mr. Master-of-the-House, this is not a luxury but a choice���not a choice but a necessity! Think it over. Then come in and see this Range. You will hear some facts
that will astonish you.

New Law Gives Self-Government to

A new law gives local municipal

promised emancipation.
The language question is settled ou
commonsense lines. Correspondence
with stale departments, as also with
public bodies, for private persons outside Poland, must be iu tlie common
language of the stale, namely Russian. Replies to letters addressed to
Polish municipal departments in Russia must, be in Russian.
Municipal placards and similar notification must be in both languages in
parallel. Debate ln either language
may be at the speaker's discretion,
but tbe president is obliged to explain the substance of a speech if any
member presenl announces his inability io follow it. Minutes of meetings
aiul oilier official proceedings must
be. recorded in both languages, lt is

A new publication, bearing tlie I ilie

To have frienels��� lie one.
Here is a good story of Lord
Kitchener after lie' had inspected
.some defence works on tlle east
coast of England, The War Minister motored from point to point,
walked over the ground, but never
sniil u word nil ilu- afternoon until
he was about to leave for London.
Then he opeutfd liis grim mouth
and said, "Those' tutu Ins of yours
couldn't keep out the Salvation
Army." This, ol course, might be
construed as a compliment to the
agressiveness of ihe S. A., or otherwise, just as you please.
God will not look over you for
medals, degrees or diplomas, but
for scars.
Having in mind our national
love for decorum we are in fit
humor to deal with an issue affecting our own relation toward our
immediate neighbor and, to that
end, to figuratively swallow our-
self. In protesting last week
against the ''mail order mania"
which sorely affects our communal
life, liberty and pursuit of happiness, we nude occasion to cite an
instance: the sending off to the
United States for bells. A half-
baked writer in the 'Krald takes a
fling at the Review ami the people
connected with it. There was
nothing misleading in the item referred to. We did not single out
any particular church bell, and the
'Erald writer must remember that
there are other churches besides St.
John's, which have purchased bells
lately nnd did not buy Canadian
bells either, nor from local dealers.
Only a fanatic could see anything
in onr item to call for the remarks
in the second paragraph anent patriotism. No charge of cowardice
was mnde or even hinted at, Can-
adaius and The Keview in particular
nre just as loyal to the Umpire as
Englishmen, Scotchmen, or Irish
men, we clo not parade our loyalty,
neither do we give alms or make
our prayers before men,

point out that the suggestion tiKielb In
the council last week to the elli-ct that
tlie existing bridge he l'eplaced by a
steel stnicliire Is also at fault. With
sawmills In the district, none of which
nl the present time are overburdened
Willi orders, it is surely more patriotic to
utilize local resources and get the bridge
replaced by a wooden structure as before
At the present time   strong   efforts    are
lieing made to extend the uses of wood,
and it would be n bad example were
were Courtenay, which largely depends
upou the lumber industry, to give the
cold shoulder to local industries. It Is
surely better to build two bridges of
wood rather than import a steel structure
from tlle east, or al the best ftom Vancouver, the bulk of the cost of whicli
would he spent outside the district ill
labour and material. The lumber industry has every reason to complain of
the lack of patriotism in II. C., as a result ol which eastern ami American substitutes for wood are imported into the
province, much of the current depression
being due to this.

Entrance Examinations
Editor Ccurtenay Review
Dear Sir,���The following facts
may explain to parents why their
children al these examinations get
low credit marks in subjects in
which their teacher reported them
to be excellent. Take the last
year's papers for example. In
'Spelling" the pupil who spelled
every word correctly might only
get 70 out of 100 marks. Why?
On account of marks for errors in
punctuation, etc.
Again  thc pupils were asked   to
draw three maps o*i the "History"
papers.    In    "Geography"    they
were asked to draw only  one map.
In "Literature" they were asked to1
give in their own words the thought |
contained in each of five  pieces  of
poetry.    Again   "Grammar"   and
"Composition"   are   combined   in
one paper.    A pupil who is excellent in only one of  these  subjects
must thus get   low marks   in   the
Again this question in "Drawing" was not only a test in Arithmetic but an impossibility. "Construct a scale 8 inches long to
measure feet and inches when one
and one fourth inches represent a
foot. Had the scale been 7 inches
it might have been done.
Thc Minister of Education was
asked by a member ot the Legislature if marks for errors in Composition were still deducted from
the pupil's spelling paper. He
side stepped the answer diplomatically. Please help to get fair plav
for th: pupils at these examinations.

A Billion Wheat Deficit
Demand For Breadstuffs Will Soon be
There is at the present time about
iwo billion bushels of wheat, tbo production of tiie countries at war, tied
up. This is about one-half the world's
total production of wheat, which is
four billion bushels. Ono writer argues that granting Unit the warring
nations produce a one-halt crop in the
coming year, a deficit or one billion
bushels will still be shown. Tho three
countries upon which the filling of
this deficit of one billion bushels will
rest are Ihe United States, Canada
and Argentina. The combined output
of these countries is only 1,249,000;
their exportable surplus would, of
course, be much less, so it can easily
be seen thai the question is uot one
to be easily solved and it behooves all
the above countries to increase tlieir
respective productions as much as
Ihey possibly can, for wben the war
is over and trade begins to re-establish itself and the nations undergo
a process of rehabilitation, the demand for all breadstuffs will be enor

Statistics recently made public show
that the departures for the six mouths

buve totalled 18,546 more than the j

non-emigrant aliens. The heaviest I
emigration shown is among aliens
from Italy. Of these. T5,62ll more departed than were admitted during the

to the Italian reservists being called

due to ihe vigilance of the British

Victoria, June 4,���An interesting
departure has been made under the
direction of the Aon- \V. R. Ross
to make our people realize the great
importance of the lumber industry
and the necessity of protecting the
forest resources of British Columbia from damage by fire.
Moving' pictures have nowadays
an educational power or.ly second
to that of the press itself. Hence
last year a number of the motion
pictures of the province were supplied with a set of slides to be used
in tlie intervals between the ordinary films, the pictures bearing the
following legends, each supported
liy a typical forest scene: "One
moment please! While waiting-,
resolve to be careful with fire in
the woods."
"Only six trees (shewn in picture) that their manufacture into
lumber employed 100 men for one
day,    I'ut your fires oul "
"$400,000 reward is what the
lumber industry of the Pacific North
West pays tlu community DAILY
for labor, supplies, etc. Vou share
it. Be careful with fire in the
woods. Tlie road to prosperity lies
through the forests; don't burn
tbem up "
The slides were sent out under
instructions from "the Minister of
Lands with a letter explaining the
ueed for the cooperation of the
theatre proprietors in order to reach
, a large body of the public inaccessible by any other means. The result was entirely satisfactory, both
theatres and patrons expressing
their appreciation.
This year the idea was extended,
every motion-picture theatre in
British Columbia receiving a set,
the subjects being more direct in
tlieir appeals, as is shown by the
(1.) Wage earners and merchants! The lumber industry already employe over half the wage
earners in British Columbia, and
distributes over 20 million dollars
annually for labor and supplies.
