It is becoming more and more
necessary that everyone practise
rigid economy during the period of
the war, in order to conserve the
resources of the Empire.
This econouy should be especially emphasized in the purchase of
Xmas gifts. Something useful
should in every case be substituted
fot something merely ornamental.
Can you think of anything more
useful than some Electncal appliance to lighten the labor of the
home, something the usefulness of
which becomes more apparent with
every day ot use
We would be very glad to quote
you exceptionally reasonable prices
on all Electrical Appliances, and
would strongly advise you not to
leave this till the last moment as
the supply of manufactured articles
is becoming very uncertain,

tiling's out of Iiis room, so that he
should ii"i risk another meeting with
the wifc who had renounced him, But
lie >���_' not ni ���nicer get on with his
packing, With a set, white face, ap-
preciaUng to Llic full the hitter truth
that lie was an exile for ever from
the society which had made him so
heartily welcome, and oi which lie
had proved himself so unworthy, he
lingered about the house, having for
excuse the fact that Mr. Jackson was
out, antl that lie could not well, without exciting unnecessary gossip, leave
without bidding his host good-bye,
Down in his heart, perhaps, there
lay hidden lhe hope that llis wife
might so far relent as lo send for
him to bid her good-bye. lie would
not ask for this favor; he would not
acknowledge lhat hc desired it, but
the chances arc thai the. wish was
there. But there came down to him
no message from I.ady Ursula. She
did not make her appearance at luncheon, and everybody knew that she
was ill and that she was keeping her
own room.
In the meantime, Paul was rather
hard put to ii for an excuse for his
own conduct in remaining downstairs
while his wifc was invalided. He
had already made il known that hc
was summoned to town, but as there
was no good train till three o'clock,
he could not avoid'meeting the house
party at luncheon.
Then he gave lhc best account he
could of his wife's indisposition.
"She had a fright, I think. A gipsy
or something. I found her lying on
the ground al the foot of the lull in
a dead faint, and luckily Eastling was
not far oil���and we got her up to thc
house together. She had belter be
quilii quiet for a few hours. Then,
] think, she'll be all right."
This was the best explanation he
could give, anil lo do him justice he
gave it SO badly, with so much hesitancy and obvious lack of case, that
his brother-in-law fell softened toll arils hint.
Caul could feel, even if he had
greatly sinned.
There, was indeed a general sense
of uneasiness abroad. Rumors had
bein dying about of some sort of a
quarrel between I.ady Ursula and her
husband, as was inevitable, since the
lady's maid had been in the room at
lhe. lime of her mistress's recovery.
Everybody tried very hard to talk
more than usual, and tiie. conversation was disconnected and difficult to
keep up.
When luncheon was ovcr, a message was brought to Lord Hastling
that I.ady Ursula wanted to speak lo
him, and he went upstairs. 1'aul, nervous as a schoolboy summoned to ihc
headmaster's room, hung about die
hall and staircase, hoping to be sent

Hugo, who was most anxious lo discuss I.ady Ursula's illness wilh her,
and kept as much oul of everybody's
way as she could.
I.ady Ursula's strongest feeling
was shame, shame which brought Ihc
red blond into her cheeks at the
tboughl that the man she loved, lhc
man she had chosen, was utterly unworthy.
She thought thai her love was
dead, killed by the horror of the
fraud practised upon her; but yet her
feelings was never more than this:
one of shame for him as well as lor
herself, of sorrow keen and poignant for a loved onc lost, for au illusion destroyed.
Since he could deceive her, tell lies
to her, make her a partner in lhe guilt
of keeping stolen gems, it followed
necessarily, to her innocent mind,
lhat his love, for her was a fraud, too.
If he had loved her he could nol have
treated her like Ihis, could not have
dragged her down to be a sharer in
thc  rewards of bis crime.
And lhe pearls! Oh, he stole ihose,
too, no doubt; stole them, and then
was forced by circumstances to give
them back.
What else had lie done while she
had becn his wife? What other thefts
had he committed, while swearing to
her that hc was leading a reformed
!    She dared not ask.
So for a long while she sat in acll-
; ing sorrow and shame, until a thought
slung her like a goad, and made her
: leap to her feet, and, ringing the bell,
! send a message lo her brother.
When he came he found her with
thc light of fever in her blue eyes,
making up a parcel with trembling
"There's something, Tom, wliicli I
want you to post at once, at once.
You must register it."
"What is it?" he asked, making a
very good guess.
She showed him that she was packing up thc unset jewels which Paul
had given her, mounted in necklace
and tiara and bracelets, as her wedding present.
"I am sending these to Scotland
Yard," she said, "as lost property."
Her brother was startled.
"But my dear Ursula, you can't
have them posted here. Thc first
thing that would happen would be
lhat you would find yourself confronted with a detective, and you
would have to account for having
them in your possession."
"1 don't care, I don't care!" said
she, wildly. "If I have lo account for
them, 1 shall simply say that lhcy
came into my possession without my
knowing where they came from, but
thai on hearing that they were stolen
1 sent ihem to the police."
"Hut mailers could not slop ihere,
you know. You don't want Paul arrested, do you?" '
'lhc parcel fell from birr hands, and
the gems rolled oul upon the little
writing tabic;.
"No, of course 1 don't want lhat,"
whispered she hoarsely.
"Well, then, keep your head. Lct
the matter rcsl a day oi' iwo, and
I'll  find  sonic, way out."
Hut this would not do. The fever
that burned in Iter eyes warned linn
that she must be humored. At last
he- agreed lo lei her make up thc parcel, directed it himself in a feigned
hand lo lhe t.osl Property Office,
Scotland Yard, ami ihen gol her to
enclose- ihc parcel in another wrapper, which he directed to a friend he
could  Irusl  iu  London.
-I'll wire to him lo expect lhe par-
col,'' said Lord hastling, "and 'ell
him tn drop il in the 1'oTt himself.
Wc can't ri*k having it registered,
but it is not likely to be lost. Al any
rale', il won't have, far to go, as he'll
probably post il somewhere near St.
James' Street, where he lives."
The parcel was made up, and Lord
Eastling, urged by his sisler, who
could nol rest until the jewels were
out of her possession, ran downstairs with il.
Al the foot of the staircase he met
Paul, anxious, pale, heavy-eyed.
"How is she?" asked he in a low
"No word  for  nn*,  1  suppose?"
I.ord Eastling shook his head, and
tried to pass. He was afraid of what
Paul would say if lie were lo learn
lhe errand cm which he was bent, and
his very anxiety made him furtive
and eager lo gel away.
"Where arc you going," asked
Paul, "wilh that clumsy parcel?"
Suddenly he. seized il and looked al
the direction,
lord Eastling, hoping thai hr
would not guess what it contained,
affected indifference.   Hm he under

The Farmer and His Will
Few farmer folks think it worth
while to make a will. That is where
lhcy make a mistake. Every farmer
should attend to Ibis very important
matter, anel do il while he is in possession of all his faculties. That
would save n great deal of trouble
and more than'a little money settling
up the estate. Lawyers find their
picking in cases where the farmer)
passes on without a will. And at the
tunc of doing this, the farmer ought
to bc at peace with himself, bis family and all the world. No will ever
should bc drawn hastily or in a passion; for then a prave injustice might
be done. Most important of all, the
farmer ought to take counsel with nis
wife before he makes any move of
this kind. That is no more than
right.���Farm Journal

carried on over the wire
The Telephone trouble man is always on the job,  night and
day, bad weather and Rood, and the telephone user always
has the means of instant communication right at hand

Dear Sir:
Replying to yours of November is.

was published in   the   '-.Courteuay

i might state, the. 'letter was discussed by the Canadian Patriotic
���Society of Courtenay and a committee appointed to look into conditions and ascertain just what wai
being raised in the district for patriotic purpores and if possible have
the contributi >us increased. The
finding of the coinuittt.ee is as follows:
We feel that you are not in po-
session of all facts in the case regarding the distriat in its relation
to the Patriotic Fund, because the
amount of money credited by you
to this district does not bv any
means constitute what has
given in the district.
The Canadian Western Lumber

% 100 per month which does not
pass through our hands but goes
through the Co's office at Fraser
Mills.    The Wireless operators  at
if it is thought desirable bv our
C.-inunttee. I reel that our committee will ir-elcorae you and assist
in calling a public meeting and
otherwise in an eudeavoc to awaken
patriotic support.

of Dr. Chase's Ointment cured me.
Thai is sixteen years ago, and I am

Lost Markets for Germany j

Essential wares formerly supplied

former markets pre-empted. Thus
laboratory procclain, which was formerly obtained from the Imperial
factory at Charlottenburg, is now-
being made by the Royal Doulton
works at Lambeth. Crucibles, evaporating dishes, filtering funnels, a
variety of special vessels used for
mineralogieal and assaying purposes,
and known only by thc names of llieir
German inventors, and other articles
of hard porcelain suited lo laboratory
work, have been . manufactured; and
according to reports from chemists
and analysis who have used ihem
they are equal, if not actually superior to thc ware produced by the Imperial factory at Charlottenburg.
They arc supplied at prices practically identical with Ihose of the Herman articles before thc war.

of the most generous ideas of lhc

the champions of right, has kept back

country? France has bled for noble
ideas, the wreath of glory already
glows on her brow, and this, when
peace comes, will gin: her fresh energy for work. If you want a world's
peace, if you want justice and freedom to triumph, pray for your country's victory, M. Brizmi; never try' to
persuade your fellow-countrymen
that peace can be obtained today.
That sort of peace would be humiliating and dishonorable. Not one
Frenchman can wish for such a peace

God Save The King
The Patriotic concert given in
the Agricultural Hall ou Thursday
evening, under the management of
Mrs. H, Scott Porteous, was a decided success. The seating capacity of the large hall was more than
filled, mauy were standing along
the sides and back. The stage was
prettily decorated with  evergreens
and artificial snow. The opening
event was a Winter Fairy scene in
which a number of littie girls and
two boys took part, with Miss Jean
McKerzie as .Fairy Queen. The
daintily clad little girls all did their
parts very nicely, aud reflected
great credit upon their instructress.
The concert part of the entertain
ment left nothing to be desired except a little more light. Mrs. Vigors played a bri lliant piano solo,
Effie Parkin and Edna Piercv sang
"I Don't Waut to Play in your
Yard" very takingly, aud received
a heartv encore. Mr. Hames was
in good voice aud rendered "In the
Days of Long Ago," in his usual
pleasing manner, Miss Jean Mc-
Kenzie's character song, "By Order of the King" brought forth a
round of applause. An old soldier
conldn't have put the puttees on
better. Miss Annie Carroll's song
"When Our Boys Reach Berlin"
got a well merited encore, for which
she sang "Good Luck to the Boys
of the Allies." Miss Mary Hodgson is just beginning to sing publicly. Sli�� has a rich sweet voice
of rare fulness, and will doubtless
be heard some of day. Her solo,
Goodbye My Bluebell" was followed by "Love's Old Sweet Song"
as au encore.
Miss Jean Beasley, aged io
years, the talented daughter of Mr,
and Mrs. C. E. Beasley. sang
"Goodbye Daddy" very sweetly.
The words and music were composed by herself a few weeks after her
father left for overseas service.
She was accompanied by her mother at the piano, and Mr, Hickman
on the violin. Little Kathleen
Beasley, in a Kate Greenway dress
gave a pretty little skirt dance
which greatly amused the audience
Both these numbers received encores.
Mr. J, Aston's sclo "Mary of
Argyle." was well rendered and as
au encore gave the "Soldier's Farewell." Mr. A . Burnett also received an ovation with "Don't You
Mrs. Rushford may well be proud
of her 'ittle family, they can furnish a good part of any program
and do it well. The two sisters
gave Scotch reels, hornpipes, etc.
while . the youngest laddie sang

Fall." and the other three the
chorus. Each uumber received a
J. Thompson was vinfortiinately
unable to be present, and Lieut,
