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

(Hid of our members serving with the
colors. These generally hnve won a
most gratifying name for the military
value of the Scouts' training, ns well
as individual honor for themselves
I including one V.C.i; bill it is only
natural that out of such a force we
should have to deplore the loss of a
very large number of promising young
comrades. They have, however, dono
well, Their sacrifice is not thrown
away, Their splendid example has
set a standard for others lo follow,
nnd is vitalizing a living memorial
to themselves iu the form of all efficient,  duty-bound,   young  citizenliood.
The actual losses among our Scoutmasters have been exceedingly heavy.
and il is Ibis that threatens the movement with a serious set-back after
the war. unless we take adequate
sleps  io  discount   it.
On the other hand, I feel lhal wonderful possibilities lie before us If we
only put ourselves iii position to deal
wilh them.
llm whal we shall need most will be
a supply of good officers directly
peine is proclaimed.
To this end we are already enlisting
the Interests of a number of sympathizers by making them honorary associates of tin movement, under the title
of "Old Scouts." in the hone thai they
may help ns to iill our gaps. We have
been fortunate enough to secure the
services of tsi gentlemen to ncl In
the place of commissioners absent on
service, and a goodly number of Scoutmasters  hnve  joined   us.
Hut the full supply of officers is a
matter of vital Importance to our ultimate expansion of success.

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.

I'ditor Review
Dear Sir: ��� We have heard srme
queer things since the question of
Prohibition came before the public,
hut one of the most amusing is the
warning of Mr. Idiens in The Review of May 18 that if thc fanners
and fruitgrowers of Hi iti-h Columbia vote for the new measure Ihey
will he cutting their own throats,
Whatever may happen to the rest
of the II. C. farmers I feel quite
sure that those of Comox district
wiil run no such risk. What
chance is there of this valley being
used for growing bailey, apples,
hops or grapes for fermentation?
Our farmers need all the feed they
can raise and more for their own
cattle. And who would wish to
see our creamery which, thanks to
its good manager, is one of the best
kept and cleanest in the province
exchanged for a brewery?
While British Columbia has to
import hams and bacon and car
loads of fruit from the United
States as well as butter from Eastern (Janada and New Zealand,
there is work enough ahead for the
farmers without trying to raise
brewery material. There may even
come a time when we will be able
to supply ourselves wilh beef and
mutton all the year round, a.s well
as apples from July to May, Grapes cannot be rai_ed here as a com
mercial propositi u We lack the
heat necessary to bring out the
proper flavor,
The   picture   the    ynme   writer
gave us in The Review a few weeks
ago of Courtenny having its park
where men and women could sit at
tables indulging in wine and be#r,
drinking while listening to music
resembled too much a German beer
garden. What sort of women live
in this valley does he think? I believe they are loo intelligent and
self respecting to appreciate such
vulgarity. 1 speak for the majority.
Every farmer who has his own
and his country's welfare at heart
will vote for Prohibition.

News was received on Tuesday
that our friends of the 102nd Batt,
C.E.F., who have been encamped
ou Goose Spit, Comox Bay, were
to leave the district on Friday,
June .nd aud proceed to Sydney
where they will join some of the
other battalions. They will carry
with them the good wishes of tlie
entire community, and thev will
leave behind them many friends
who remember with gratitude the
kind way in which soldiers of the
battalion came to the rescue during
the severe winter months, and saved buildings from collapsing under
the unusually heavy snowfall.
Amongst those who were resident
in the Comox Valley we might
mention Lietits. J. B. Bailey and

some of these will, from time to
time, send us approved articles for
publication in the columns of this
paper so that we may more readily
follow the movements and life of
the i02iid.
