New Air Weapon    Koar ofFrench Guns
Germans Are Perfecting a Mew Aerial
The aerial iropedo invented by a
Swedish officer nnd sold to Krupps
may hnve been ilie basis of Germany's
new air weapon, but certainly it is not
the finished article. The Swedish invention resembles a huso shell fitted
with a turbine engine driven by gas
pressure; the German nir torpedo is
more like an airship lilted with propellers driven liy electricity and con
trolled from a Zeppelin by wireless,
The German aerial torpedo can, theoretically, remain in tlie air for three
hours, and enn be conl rolled from
distance of two miles. Both weapons
are discharged from a tube like a marine torpedo, but in the case of the
German invention two propellers and
two lifting screws are automatically
started at tbe moment of discharge.
In shape, this torpedo of the air,
whicli is bout seven feet long, resembles the submarine \veup_n. It is
composed of two eases, the outer of
thin chrome nickel and the inner of
material similar to that used in Zeppelins- About one-sixth of file space
at the rear is occupied by an electric
accumulator at the bottom, and an
electric motor generator secured to
the top. The machinery is controlled
by Hertzian wines acting on the
Telefunken system of wireless, nnd it
is claimed thut up to n distance of
two miles Ibe air torpedo cun be
steered  nt  will.
Tlie nir torpedo is Inflated with
water gas and compressed gas, but
as it is liMvier than the air, two
lifting screws work under the body
to keep the torpedo in the air. while
tlie motive power is supplied by propellers. Hoth screws and propellers
nro connected with the same shaft,
which runs through the body of th*.
When tlie air torpedo, after (lying
through ibe ah-, hovers Immediately
over Iiie selected target il is made lo
assume a vertical position, tlie lifting
horizontal screws und propellers are
slopped, and the torpedo dives to the
ground, carrying a large quantity of
hie!, explosive charge at its nose. The
charge explodes on contact like an ordinary shell, iiini it is said Unit in two
torpedoes there is sufficient explosive
force to dectroj Hie Tower of London.
Originally, these air torpedoes were
destined to he carried exclusively by
Zeppelins, hut owing to certain Improvements It lias now been found
Ihey cun be manipulated trom warships. According to Information, Germany purposes to use torpedoes of
tho air against the British fleet, and
for Uiul purpose small, swift craft,
armed only witli nerial torpedoes, uro
building or  have  already  been built.

The  Cologne Gazette  publishes llie

i author, Dr. George Weaner, of tbe ter-

lt is Friday morning.    During   the

I ume uml duration exceeded anything
experienced since we have been here.

I was exceptionally lively. Then it died

Tbe thunder of distant guns can be
I better heard upon the hills than in tlio

ii can no longer be concealed that
Llie number of German submarines
destroyed since the debut of their operations is very considerable.
uue nf the principal results of
Great Britain's maritime action bus
been to render Ineffective the at-
tempted blockade which tho Germans,
in defiance of the laws of war. imagined ihey could accomplish by employing tho mosi formidable naval
weapon which science has placed in
their hands, All the precautions that
long experience of ths sea ami Its
battles could suggest have been taken.
Skill, boldness, courage and energy
have met all the needs or the ease. Assuredly the submarines of Admiral
Tlrpitz have not exhausted tbe list of
llieir exploits. They will continue to
show in attackng warships an audacity which tlieir enemies were the first
to recognize. But their Impotence
becomes manifest In crimes against
private individuals and the danger of
Iheir operations against themselves
bus lost much of ils Importance. Their
field of action is limited, iheir power
nf destruction meets barriers. The
losses to whicli they expose themselves, ami th';.' already swored,
cannot indefinitely be made good.
The spectacle of the land army
created by Lord Kjtcbener hnd roused
my admiration of tho resources ami
determination of the country which
has improvised it. The spectacle of
Its naval forces, organized and led
by sailors, who are heirs of lhe most
memorable traditions iu history, confirms my convictions Unit nothing will

Brutality of the Germans
fiusslan   Soldiers  I cund   With   Their

with which they sought to frighten

war, but which had diminished in recent months. Finding tlio towns nnd

bare of provisions unci the distances
between the towns becoming greater
the farther they penetrated into the
country, and Incessantly harassed by
lhe Russians troops, some, of the invaders are declared to display a ferocious and revengeful temper.
The atrocities laid at their door are
said by the Russian people to bo as
bad as those committed in Belgium
just, nfter the opening of the war. In
many places, for example, especially
in the three days' fight around tbo
fortress of Novo Georgiovsk, all the
Russian wounded left on the battlefields were killed, according to Russian reports.

The elahni'aletiess and permanency
of Iiie German i reaches indicated the

.in the security of their lines. Dugouts
I of thirty feci depth, were cemented
and contained electric lights and arm

When  the artillery  work   was  perfected      tlie   Ilritish   infantry   sprang

Instead of paying attention to the
letter directed to the council at the
meeting on Monday evening, the
aldermen should have ordered lt
into the wastepaper basket. By
paying at ttntion to it the council
has virtually acknowledged that
two of its most important committees, viz., the finance and the board
of works, were incompetent. They
should have examined the person-
ell of the signatories. One of them
is not a resident, number is not a
ratepayer, and tlie third had not the
courage to face the electors at the
last municipal elections. Do these
gentlemen represent the citizens of
Courtenay ? Without going into
the merits or demerits of the suggestions contained in lhe letter, we
think it will be quite time enough
at the beginning of the year, when
some comprehensive system of
street grading, ditching, etc,, is
adopted, to commence financing on
unpaid taxes. The taxes for this
year are not overdue until Dec 31,
and then will be plenty of time to
call Ihem arrears.
Xmas gift in many cases, which
gifts be it said nre turned out at a
large profit by the manufacturer,
and it will al.so return an annual
dividend. Most important of all
the war loan provides an opportti-
nity for thrift. Don't forget thej
thousands of dollars that were invested in city lots, and invested not
only cheerfully but eagerly. Is
our Empire, our Dominion, our liberty, and all that is sacred less to
us than a miserable lot a few miles
out of a city that suddenly ceased
to grow ?

Co-operation in Sheep Fanning
Gradually the value of co-operation is being appreciated by our
farmers. The latest proof of its effectiveness is the rapid growth of
sheep industry in Quebec during
the past two years, A year ago
last winter the first wool growers
and sheep breeders' association was
formed in routine Count}-, now
there are eight of these in sections
where there are district representatives. These are purely co-operative associations formed primarily
for the marketing of wool.
During the first season the Pontiac association sold over 12,000
pounds** f wool, which realized for
its members about f 720 more than
if it had been sold in lhe ordinary
way. The best proof of the success
and popularity of tbe association is
the fad lhat during the past season
43,000 lbs of wool were sold through
it.    This year 104,192 pounds were

I Every pound of this wool sold at
from five to ten cents above the
prevailing local prices, thereby netting the fanners an advance of from
twenty to thirty per cent. The
prices per fleece ranged from $1.13
to $2.50.
The associations have been ;o
successful in the selling of wool
that they are now taking up another branch of the work. This is
faciliating the exchange of pure
bred rams
The usefulness cf the association
is not going to stop bore, however,
In the near future they intend to
include the marketing of mutton as
well. Tliere is uo reason why this
should not prove as successful as
bas the marketing of wool.
There seems to be no limit to the
application of co-operative principles, and we venture to sny that in
the near future co-operation will be
tbe general rule rather than the ex-
ceptional case. It seems to be the
key which will solve n great many
ol the farmer's difficulties, partial-
lory ns regards the marketing of
his products,

The following letter was received
and laid on the table for discussion:
City Council,
Gentlemen:���At a recent nieetiiiK of
the City Council the Clerk presented a
financial statement showing, among
other things, an estimated surplus of
approximately $ ',900 alter allowing for
tlie estiuuteel necessary expenses for the
balance ol the year.     ���
One or two things appears self-evident. Either the tax rate is too high,
o.- tlie city should expend the surplus on
much needed public improvements,
While it is true that this $2,900 is not
"cash on hand," in fact there Is about
54,2DII unpaid taxes outstanding, it must
be remembered that this hi every case is
practically a lirst morlgage 011 Uu- property against which this money is outstanding, and Uiul at our present lax
rate of e 1 mills, or one per cent., every
dollar due the city is therefore secured
by a lirst mortgage of oue hundred dollars worth of real property, With "accounts receivable" ol S I.Jon secured by
a lirsl mortgage of $4,200 il should not
be difficult (or the city to realize in cash
on ibis asset,
This, therefore, appears to be an excellent opportunity (or the Finance
Conim ttce to rise above a clerclal level
of checking invoices and vouchers, and
to di mo iftrate to the public that they
have the financial capabilities which
their appointment to this important
committee would lead the ratepayers to
persunip, and actually finance the affairs
of -he city.
While it i.s true that the city might
have to pay a slightly higher rate of interest at present than during normal
times, it should be borne in mind, lirst--
that the outstanding taxes are bearing
interest at a sufficient rate of intrest to
pay (be merest on the loan, and that
the loan could be liquidated as rapidly
ns the taxes are paid into the city treasury Second���that ul the present time a
given sum of money will go further in
the lahiur market than during liul'innl
Take for instance lhe sum of $1,000.
I'.*, normal time- this could no doubt be
borrowed f"r from 5 to 6 per cent. Bay
3 per cent, This would net the city
$950. This used in the cinploymc
��� r iu ma1 ': nei at 5' pe
v. .1 ���.. irkh
Take   $ 1,000 at tin
say S per cent, inter
it of
presenl   time, at
,   would net 8920
which used in the employment of labour
at $2   would   give  460   workindg  dnys
equal   to a   net gain   of   45   per   cent.
Tliese facts should  be'able to   penetrate I
the brain of even an Alderman. i
While it should   be   hardly  necessary ]
io point out the benefits   accruing to the j
ratepayers from work  undertaken at the |
present time it might be as   well to enumerate   a few   of   the   advantages that
would follow.
First.    We would   have   better roads
and   streets,  making  traffic   safer  and
I pleasanter to the traveling public, in it-
1 self a great asset to the town.
I    Second.    By giving   employment dur-
1 ing the dullest months  of the year to a
I large number of our citizens,   rspecially
men   with Jamilies,   whieh in   some instances may save   the city the  necessity
1 of making relief   grants to   needy families during the winter months.
j    Third.    Tliere is   no doubt   that con-
' siderable of   this money  would   find its
way back   into tlle   city treasury  in the
shape of taxes   from the   ratepayers engaged on city work.
Fourth. The benefits accuring to
property owners through the enhancing
of values of property iu the vicinity of
improved streets.
This work would also be beneficial to
the merchants as it would cause considerable money to circulate in the town
which no doubt would be spent for provisions, clothing, etc., persuining of
course that the ratepayers employed on
city work and earning the citizens money
would hardly have the face to send this
money lo outside merchants, bearing in
mind that tne outside merchants are
paving nothing into the city treasury to
make thir work possible,
Of course the very idea that the local
mercb-iiits migbl indirectly benefit will
no doubt be viewed with position horror In some of llie Aldermen and will
no doubt be a strong argument against
the city undertaking any work at this
We would   urge,  therefore,   that this
I scheme be given   the serious  consider-
[ alum of llie council   and   citizens generally, tn a an  earnest effort   be made to
finance   work along   tliese lines   to the
extent of it lent iwo thousand  dollars,
ami as the committee under whose juris,
diction this   work   wou'd   probably fall
1 has apparently proven   themselves Bros-
, sly incompetent, that a capable   and ex-
1 porienced foreman  be put in  chirge of
she work, selected without regard to his
I political leanings or personal bias, anil
1 responsible to the council as a whole.
Jt might be au excellent thing to hold
I a meeting of the citizens and to allow
I full and free  discussion  on this  subject
as it seems to be one which has been
I sadly overlooked bv the council in the
1 past. I

In Courtenay
I met a maid upon the street,
A little maid ol seven,
So near an angel that her thoughts
.Must surely he of lieu ten.
"Now, where nway, my pretty maid,
With eyes so clear anil bright?"
She Winked at me, "I go to see
Our city fathers light!"
I met a little mnn who walked
With n most martial mein:
He'd grow n brave and valiant man���
"fwas clearly to he seen.
"You think," I said, "Of   father brave,
Whose gone to light the Ilun,
You'd like to imitate tli J men.
Who drill with sword and gull?"
"Oh, uo," he said, "For things like that
I do not care a rap,
I'm Ruing down into the town
To see the Council scrap!"
In ways most  devious, dark and
I met an Alderman;
"Why all this fuss, why rage and cuss??
Now lull uie, il you can."
He smiled on me a boastlul smile,
And said, "I will he frank,
The most important thing of all
Is 'bout a rotten plank."
I met a peaceful citizen,
(I did,  1 did, indeed!)
He seemed distressed, I dimly guessed
How argent was his need.
"1 go to fight the linn," he said,
" 'Tis all the peace I'll get,
The future's black!    When I get back
I'll Iind tli_ 111 fighting yet."
