Logging Camp, was laid to tils rent
on Sunday afternoon In the Roman

the great popularity of the deceased,
the Church was crowded to capacity
by friends from far and near to pay
their last respects. Arthur Boyd waB
a fine upstanding man being over six
feet tall and exceptionally well set up,
a man a person would take a second
look.at, and being of a very quiet and
unassuming nature, generous to a
degree. He has left us the remembrance of a true gentleman, a genial
nature, a lovable disposition, a good
friend and a kindly heart. To his
Immediate relatives and we, who have
yet to make the final lap in life's
journey, Is found consolation In the
thought that—-
Glimmering   through   the   shades   of
doubt and gloom,
The promised dawn
Casts shafts of beavenly leaven
When those, who now parted, shall
again draw near
On resurrection morn.
The Rev. Father Beaton conducted
the brief service at the graveside, deceased being borne to his last rest
by the following friends; Messrs. M.
Davison, N. Helm, J. Ducca. B.
Churchhlll, George Raga and B. Bono.

THE HARVESTERS
IT IS a good iliing that a sufficiency of labor for
the coming harvest is assured by the sending
of ten thousand of Britain's unemployed to
Canada to help out. We in Canada should feel
both grateful and proud at the knowledge of so
bountiful a harvest. Truly Providence is good
to this Canada of ours and we go marching steadily forward to our peaceful place in the sun, the
envy of so many nations, maybe, but the enemy
of none. How could we be an enemy of the nations wu are helping to feed?   This by the way.
While all of us will rejoice that there will lie
no shortage of labor for the gathering in of the
harvest, there is another cause for rejoicing and
that is the fact that the British and Canadian
governments, and our railways, appear to have
undertaken to see that the harvesters, when their
harvesting jobs are finished, shall not be thrown
on the industrial scrap heap to augment Canada's
unemployed army. The scandal of a few years
ago, when many of the men from the old country
were left here strained high and dry, has not
been forgotten, nor will be soon. It gave Canada
a black eye overseas and was poor emigration
propaganda.
There is much to be said for the idea expressed
in London that, as far as possible, miners should
be sent out here on this harvesting job. They
should make good harvesters, being strong, hardworking and eager for a new chance. When the
harvest is garnered in these men could easily
be absorbed in our mining industry. We are not
all desirous of seeing them enter into competition
with the coal miners of Canada. Where they
would fit in best would probably be in the new-
mining camps, where men are digging for, gold,
copper, silver, lead and other metals, an industry
which had made such tremendous strides in the
past few years.
But whatever the promised harvesters turn
mendous natural resources, and to help this country realize its high destiny as one of the most
prosperous countries of the world and the Empire
where not only are all men equal and free, but
happy, prosperous and successful. Welcome to
the harvesters!
THE KELLOGG TREATY
A GREAT THING is happening in the world
but for some peculiar reason not much attention is being paid to it. The nations of
the world, due to the wise and statesmanlike action of Secretary Kellogg, are getting together
to outlaw war. This is a stupendous fact, one of
the greatest facts of all history . Never before
in the history of the human race, so far as humans of today are aware, have the different countries of the earth come so near to the establishment of universal peace. For centuries we have
been either making war upon one another, preparing for war with each other, or else recovering from war amongst ourselves.   What idiocy!
Now, at last the viewpoint is changing. Men
and women—perhaps it should be put women and
men for women saw the truth first—are realizing
the futility of war. War settles nothing; solves
no problems, ends no disputes, eases no burdens
but imposes them instead, never conquers anybody, for the spirit of man is unconquerable, and
in a word is an utter waste of men, wealth, time,
energy and all that goes into the making of war.
War is always destructive; never constructive.
At the end of any war the parties to it have to get
together around a table and discuss the matters
in dispute. The right policy is to sit around a
table first and fight afterwards; better still, to
not fight at all.
Not everybody, probably will see this happy
outcome of the efforts of the United States to
bring about outlawing of war. The professional
soldiers will still want to see standing armies
maintained. The makers of munitions, the builders of ships of war, and all the greedy horde of
army of contractors who profiteer in the blood
of men will still preach about the glory of war.
the heroism of our soldiers (which nobody will
dispute) and the necessity of war as a reconse-
cration of the nation to higher things. We have
heard it all before and humanity is not to be so
easily Tooled today as it has been. The price we
pay for making our international bankers our
munition makers, and our profiteering contractors
rich beyond the dreams of avarice, is too high
Every Canadian will rejoice in the knowledge

will decide to stay in Canada, this great land of comprising this commonwealth of nations which
adventure of promise, of opportunity.   There is is the British Empire have signfied ther willing-
room here for many millions. There should be no
restriction placed upon any who want to come
here and find work to do. The parrot cry of
certain sections of our people that the newcomers
will enter into competition with labor already
here is so much balderdash. Every man who
comes will create wealth. He will not only be a
wage-earner but a wage-spender. His family will
soon follow him. All of us who are here already
will benefit by his coming. The Prince of Wales
on his last visit to Canada spoke of this Dominion as "this greatest unchartered reef of wealth
which is Canada". Men are needed, badly needed,
to chart the reef of wealth, to exploit our tre-
ness to enter into holy compact of no more war.
That is a glorious sight to give the world. This
great assemblage of free nations, the most free
dom-loving of all the nations of the earth, na
tions which have proved their prowess on many a
battlefield, speak as one and say, "Yes, we are
for world peace". Truly is the British Empire
a league of nations that gives lead to all the nations of the earth. We who belong to it may
feel proud that when one nation, wnich is an
offshoot of the Empire, proposes the outlawry of
war all the nations which are blood kin to her
grasp her hand in ready willingness to stand for
the peace of the world.

The happiest man in the Comox Valley on Saturday evening was Mr. Johnnie Stevenson,
of the Courtenay Golf Club, and
the cause of his elation was the
fact that to him goes the credit
of being the first player to make
a hole in one on the Sandwick
course, which feat he performed
at the mashie hole, the 8th, on
Saturday. Of course, a hole in
one is more or less a lucky shot,
particularly when made by an
indifferent golfer, which is often
the case, but Johnnie is one of
the most consistent players in
the Courtenay Club, and is fully
entitled to all the glory attached to such a play; all the more
so inasmuch as he is also one
of the pioneers of the club. The
event was properly celebrated in
the accustomed way. at the Club
House at the week-end.

Office of the Medical Health Officer
Cumberland,  B.C.
July 31st, 1928.
: Notice to the Public of Cumberland,
In a circular letter sent to tho
Health Officers of the Province Nine
cases of Infantile Paralysis were reported in the Province, one In Vancouver, three in Fernie, and five In
Nanaimo, with one death. Sence the
letter was received more cases were
reported from Nanaimo.
In view of the fact that a large
number of families have recently arrived here from Nanaimo, and that
many persons have been visiting Nanaimo, it has been thought wise to publish a few of the facts relating to tht
, seriousness of this disease, and the
' ways It may be spread.
Definition. An acute infectious disease accompanied in many, perhaps in
most cases by Paralysis. The Paral-
ysis Is Incidental and when it occurs,
is a weakening or a total loss of power
In certain muscles with no gross disturbance of sensation.
"The Name Infantile Paralysis" is
no longer applicable. The incidence
of this disease and the increased mortality in adolescents nnd adults must
be realised.
Methods of transmission of tlie (lis-
ease. The work of Dr. Wickham io
the Swedish epidemic of 1905 Is'Important ln this connection. "Owing to
the geographical nature of Sweden,
with Its small villages with a few lines
ot Communication, he was able to
demonstrate that the disease only
travelled along lines of human communication, that it would not cross
a ravine 100 yards wide; he showed
that whenever infection spread to a
fresh village someone from the Infected area had visited the village and
that this person was not ill, neither
did he later develop the disease, he'
was a carrier".
Definition of a Carrier. A Carrier
Is a person adult or child who harbours the Virus in his nasal, buccal,
or pharangeal muccous membrane,
and can transmitt it to others, without himself showing the signs or
symptoms of the disease at the time
or at a later date (healthy carrier) or
one who has had the disease, has ai>-
parently made a complete recovery,
but still harbours the virus (chronic
carrier) "Dr. Pexner of the Rockefeller : Institute, New York, has demonstrated the presence of the virus
in the mouth of a healthy person
whose child was ill with the disease".
Let me quote one Instance of how
a carrier has spread the disease. This
was reported by Dr. Collier. "One
day a farmer from a country village
sold a horse to another farmer who
lived 20 miles away, and as part of
the contract had to deliver the horse
at the farm of the purchaser. He
started from home leaving his child
ill with Infantile Paralysis. He took
the midday meal with the purchaser,
and aat between two of the children
at the table. Within 48 hours both
of the children were ill with Infantile
Paralysis and a few days later their
mother and another child were stricken by one short visit of a "Carrier"
with no possible source of infection
from elsewhere. Probably, too, this
father had infected his own child, for
adults are often Carriers".
Personal Precautions to Be Adopted.
1. "As It has been shown experiment
ally that the virus Is present in
the nasal muccous membrane, an
antiseptic solution should he applied by means of a spray, to the
throats and nasal passages, not
only of the patients, but of all
persons brought In direct contact
with them. A 1 per cent, solution
of peroxide of hydrogen, or permanganate of potash — 1:5000.
These an also be used as throat
wash and gargle.
2. "All discharges of the patient as
well as articles which may he soiled by such discharges, should be
immediately  disinfected.
3. "The sick should be isolated from
the healthy, and If appropriate
Isolation and nursing cannot he
obtained at home, the patient
should be treated In an Isolation
hospital. The sick-room and Us
contents should be disinfected at
the end of the Illness.
4. "Those  closely   attending  on   the
sick should avoid any contact with
others, especially with children,
which might lead to infection in
the ways previously mentioned.
5. "Contacts should be excluded from
school for a period of three weeks.
While It is difficult at present to
know how long the infection ot
Infantile Paralysis persists, isolation of the patient for six weeks
Is a desirable measure.
6. "In view of the danger ot infection
from abortive cases and carriers
anyone suffering from indefinite
feverish attacks should remain
away from work or school and
consult a doctor at once.
7. "In view of the fact that healthy
adults can convey the disease to
children and adults there is more
hope of limiting the spread of the
disease If the contacts are known
and Isolation  of the contacts 1b
Instituted  promptly.
Bear ln mind tbe New York Epidemic
of 1018-5000 dead and 13.000 jwra-
lyied In greater or less degree In
three months,
The   responsibility-   of   disregarding
these regulations Is a very great one.
It Is no leas than the possible death or
permanent crippling of a young child,

31-81 Medical Health Officer.

THE THISTLE SPEAKS
Dear Sid.—Allow me, as president
of the local branch of St. Andrew's
Society ,to protest against the growing tendency to use such terms as
Ex-Premier of England."
Were Mr. Ramsay MacDonald other
han the man he Is he might prefer
o be invited to English Columbia as
he Ex-Premier of Scotland but not,
et us hope, being yet over Anglifled,
le is still a Scottish gentleman and
vould favor the title, "Premier of
3reat Britain, etc."
As compared with Scotland geographically, England occupies the better
position. Numerically and financial'
Iy (If you include her Jews) England
is superior, but then that superiority
existed and was acknowledged at the
time of Union when she agreed to be
governed united with Scotland and
named Great Britain for all purposes
rf national government under a United kingship.
The people of England have a weak-
less for the term English gentlemtn;
let us hope they will continue to claim
•hat distinction and be entitled to it,
ememberlng at the same time that
io gentleman backs out of a bargain
lonontbly made, signed and sealed.
If the local branch of the Canadian
Olub be fortunate enough to have Mr.
MacDonald as a guest, I feel sure they
will honor him not as a Scot, who was
.First Minister in England, not as a
Scotsman, who occupied the highest
position in Scotland, not as one who
had captained one vessel, but as commander of the fleet.
Yours faithfully.

of the
Canadian Medical Association
Nelson's Unlucky Love Adventure.
Question concerning Health, addressed to the Canadian Medical
Association. 184 College Street,
Toronto, will he answered. Questions as to diagnosis and treatment will not be answered.
Adenoids
During the summer months the
symptoms caused by adenoids are not
as noticeable as in winter. The. are
referred to now because this is an
opportune time for having them attended to.
Adenoids are tumor-like growths
that develop in the passage betweeu
the nose and throat. Very young
children may have adenoids. The
majority of cases occur in children
from eighteen months to six years of
| age.
The presence of adenoids usually
causes what is apparently a chronic
j cold In the head, with a great deal of
j discharge from the nose. These symn-
i toms, with snuffles, occur during the
' 'winter season. Cough is frequently
associated with the condition.
i    If the growths are large, the child
will be a mouth-breather—breathing |
through the mouth day and night, be-
cause   the   natural    breathing-space;
through the  nose  is  blocked.    This;
gives rise to snoring.
In advanced cases, the child has a ;
characteristic appearance of the face.
The open mouth gives a stupid ex-
presslon, the nostrils are small aud ,
pinched, the upper lip is thickened.
Tin1 voice may have a nasal twang.
The heuring may be impaired. Bed-
wetting may be part of the symptoms. '
Complete removal Is the only treat-
ment for adenoids of any severity.
Parents who have been advised by
their physician to have an adenoid
condition corrected In their child J
should do so. Parents of children
whu show evidence of adenoids, as |
described, should have the children I
examined to find out the condition, j
The treatment of such a condition Is I
advised because ft interferes with the i
normal development of the child, j
lowers his level of physical fitness ■
and, if severe, results in a permanent
deformity of the mouth and face
YJ^riting in the London "Evening
News," Max Pemberton, well-
known English writer, says:—
"I read in an American journal
a discussion as to which is the
most beautiful city in the world;
and I am not surprised that a
writer names Quebec, and
names it with emphasis.
We cannot wonder at the
literary enthusiasm Quebec
has provoked.
"The majestic appearance
ef Cape Diamond," says one
writer . . . the fortifications
the cupolas, and minaret a,
like those of an Eastern city,
blazing and sparkling in the
sun, the noble basin like a
sheet of purest silver, in
which might ride with safety
the navies of the world, the
graceful meanderings of the
River St. Lawrence, the fertile valley dotted with picturesque habitant houses, the
distant falls of Montmorency
. . . thc grim purple mountains, the barriers to the
North, form a picture which it
le no exaggeration to say is
unsurpassed in any part of
the world."
It is easy to applaud such
chauvinism when one has
foot in Quebec and been received
with that courtly hospitality for
which its people are famous.
Naturally, romance is never far
away from Buch a picture. There?
Is a story told of the Lord Nelson
and of one Miles Prentice, who
served under Wolfe and subse-
taently served beer.   This fellow
opened an inn to which the soldiers
and sailors resorted . . . and among
them in the year 1782 came the
Captain Nelson, then commanding
H.M.S.  Albemarle, of 26 guns.
"Miles Prentice," says a writer*
"had a niece, Miss Simpson,
daughter of Sandy Simpson, whose
charms so captivated the embryo
Admiral that when his vessel had
sailed from port he clandestinely
returned for the purpose of wedding 'the maid of the inn,' which
purpose was defeated by Mr. Alexander Davidson, then a Quebec
merchant, who, with the assistance
of his boat's crew, forcibly carried
the amorous captain on board hie
vessel,"
This   seems   somewhat   drastic
treatment, hardly likely to be popular in our time, when captains
ashore to marry maids are usually
welcome and other paople hasten
to buy confetti.   But Quebec
ever was and ever will be a
city   of   tbe   strictest   proprieties.
I would add that my first
visit to this incomparable
height was made during the
first considerable snowfall of
thc year. I believe some
five feet of snow were down
in relatively a few hours, and
anything more bewitching
than the whitened domes and
pinnacles and the fairy-like
scenes beyond the wells it If
difficult to imagine.
But Quebec is the home of
superb spectacles, and in tht
Chateau Frontenac possesses
one of the most dominating
hotels in the world. Here
is a great hostelry like to
no other one can name—
majestic in the fashion of a
mediaeval fortress, yet u
up-to-date as any hotel in
America and more comfortable than most. From its terrace a
glorious panorama of river and villages and blue hills beyond is unfolded . . . and it is no surprise to
hear that many thousands of Americans seek this palatial height
every year and suceumb to Ha
enchantment.

the young couple with a tray and tray-
ful of table silver to carry back to
California the good wishes of their
friends. Fred, Jr., suitably replied
and Mrs. Horwood, Jr., whom everyone falls in love with, voiced her
grateful thanks for the beautiful gifts.

part in by Mrs. S. Shaw, Mrs. H.

CHAPTBD XIV !
There was a chill in the room, no
fire could dispell it- The brave, hewn
branches ot the tall trees remembered Bummer and burned in red ami gold
end green. The stove glowed. But
the room wns cold with the loss ot
hope.
Something was dead In each of us,
nnd what was dead was Hope"—
The Hue went through Pauli's mind.
She shook herself, mentally, physically,    She reminded Mltzi:—
"Al least you saw liim when tbe
regiment came through."
"Yes, I saw him. 1 was so—ob,
i'auli It was more than happy that I
didn't see him. You can't understand
what I mean, You'll learn, 1 suppose.
1 mean I touched htm, I knew he was
there, but my eyes saw tho old Fritz,
After he had gone I saw him again—
what he had really looked like—not
Fritz at all, not Fritz."
"Carl hasn't been home since he
kissed me over there by the window.
He's never seen his baby, hut now"—
Pauli pulled at the folded piece of
paper on top of tlie letter packet. She
slipped it from under thc string that
held the letters together and smoothed
It out. The first words.—I—love—
you—
She smiled happily, gallantly. She
tucked the piece of common paper
with ihe three celestial words in common Ink upon it, in the little pocket of
her dross, over her heart. Mitzi watched her. And asked desperately: —
"Where's ihe sewing? Give me some
Pauli gave her a dross, needle and
coarse thread from tho basket.
"What luck," Paid Pauli, "for us—
that you save Kurt's clothes."
Mitzi   was   quite   still.    When   she
spoke again her voice was quite pitiful.    She explained  simply: —
"I hoped I might need them again."
There   was   a   sound   In   the   hall.
Pauli's pale face (lushed.    Tier heart
beat sickeningly.   Carl, she said quickly, trying to hide her exultance, her
hope.
"Is that the baby?"
She got to her feet, listened at the
baby's  door.    He  was   sleeping,   she
knew;   she was  listening  for Carl.
The step passed upward. Paull
turned away. Her heart sank again,
paunded, was normal.   She said;—
Dr. Mueller told uie that most women nowadays, cut up their sheets
for the new babies."
She came back to the fire and picked up some sewing.   Mitzi asked:—
"Was ho asleep?"
"Yes.   He sleeps a great deal, day
times, to make up for the bad nights.
T suppose.   When ever a band passes
he wakes up and cries."
.Mitzi nodded.
"I  suppose so.    Maybe ho understands."
Paull laughed a little.
"We thing he's a born critic.   You
OUghtto see him wilh books or papers
Ho takes hold of all he can find—there
aren't many now—and  tears them—
quite happily.    If that isn't criticism
what is it?"
Mitzi smiled.
"Kurt, was like that too." she said
"He always profererd books to toys
when he was little."
Pauli turned a hem.   Her roughened fingers kept catching in the thread.
'The baby will be all right I'm sure,'
Bhe said, "as soon—as we get some
milk"—
"How about Baruska?" Mltzi inquired; "she's on thc farm, Isn't she,
or did she leave?"
"I don't know. We've written and
written but mails are uncertain and
we can't afford journeys, of course."
Mltzi started to speak; hesitated
dropped her sewing, picked it up
again finally said, with a sort of
forced courage:—
"Don't think me meddling, but I'd
Write Mr. Behrend. After all, the baby's bis grandson."
Paull Hushed again.   She answered
Slowly, making a funny little gesture,
half defiant apology, half resignation.
"I have written."
"And had no answer? What, a brute
he is. But now that Cnrl is coming
surely he'll let you hoar from him
his own son- coming home after nil
this time?"
Paull smiled across at her. She said
"I'll tell you a secret. Don't tell
father, for mercy's sake! I took advantage of Carl's arrival and wrote.
and this morning—well, I did get an
answer."
"Forgiving?"
"Everything. I was a little astonished, although I had hoped. But father insulted him, really—well, almost
beyond forgiveness. He had that carload of rice hidden. Mr. Behrend, I
mean. And he came for advice and
father said, "I'm busy.   Please go,"
"I know," said Mitzi. "Was that
really  all?"
"No. You remember when it was?
Just before tho baby was born? Well,
Mr. Behrend turned at the door and
said, 'Let me know about Pauli I'll
come as soon as 1 hear the news of
her and the baby. You can reach me,
night or day.'"
"And then?"
"And then father said. "Come back
when you've sold your rice for what it
cost, not a heller more; come back
then and not until then, you murder!"
Again that sound in the hall. Oh,
those little trivial sounds and tbe
listening heart. Paull rose again and
went to the door. Mltzi watched her.
The dear pitiful pretense. Mltzi knew
or once had known, the waiting for
the dear beloved familiar step. Now
Mitzi listened too for the heavy tramp
of an impressive elderly postman.
She spoke hastily.
"It was dreadful. I suppose. But
somehow nothing seems so bad these
days. I mean things like that, personal animosities. quarrelB, and even
if he was terribly angry he's the baby's grandfather."
I'auli came back. The sound in the
hal1 had ceased.
"I know, but you know them both,
Mr. Behrend and father. Especially
father. He—well, he has his pride
left to him. That's about all. He'd
rather die than write or apologize.
Writing would amount to that I suppose. His pride and his principles,
these remain to him. Anyway, Mr.
Behrend's coming and I've got to tell
father—don't envy me!"
Mitzi laughed, a rusty sound, as If
laughter were strange to her. an alien
thing,   unused,   half  forgotten.    She
asked: —
"Where is the professor now?"
"In tho queue waiting to huy food
sine edaylight."
"Food   that reminds me.   I'd better
go "
"No stay for dinner. I had it ready
quite a while ago, before the doctor
came, hut I'm keeping it warm till fa
ther comes. I never know how long
he'll be .when he goes out like this."
"Well, are you sure you can spare
I'd love tn stay. Kurt's still at school,
"Carl's not due till supper. I asked
father to have something special for
Carl. He promised. I know he'll
bring it, if he can.   Guess!" !
"I can't."
Mitzi     looked    very    simply    and
stnrkly hungry.   She ordered directly
and petulantly, as a child,
"Don't tease; tell me!"
"Sausage!"
"Not rcaly?"
Pauli rose and began to clear the
table.
"Only enough for Carl, of course.
Father's selling the best picture, Judas. He took it down yesterday. We'd
rather counted on Judas, but ft Isn't
every day that one's husband"	
She stopped suddenly, she couldn't
hear Mitzi's eyes. The physical hunger
was gone from them now, but they
were  starved, starved.    Paull  asked
hurriedly: —
"What time Is It?"
Mltzi dropped the tell-tale eyes to
the cheap little watch on her wrist.
"Twenty past one."
Time goes so slowly!"  Pauli complained,  taking the  picture  of Carl
and   the   paper  flower  to  the  desk.
"There, by his typewriter.   Car] loves
bright colors—like a child—he is a
baby really, In so many ways.   Father
wanted  to  sell  the tpyewrlter but  I
wouldn't—H was like asking me to sell
something alive—-and I was right, for
it pays its board now, addressing envelopes—"
She picked up a stack of envelopes
nnd held them out.
"See? I rather like doing H— I'm
learning to do them so accurately and
rapidly—only one's hands do get cold
and numb. Mitzi—I'm goin to wear

him.    He said:—
"The English are starving us"—
Mitzi read further:—
"Merchant ships sunk without warning!"
Pauli shuddered. She commented,
Bincerely shocked, and wondering a

"This bread is dreadful!" she complained. "It gets worse every day,
What do they put into it?"
"Sawdust," suggested Mltzi.
The professor smiled.
"Every thing but flour—depend on

"You don't mean it. How terrible!"
"Why?" asked her father, bis voice
sombre.
She turned toward him in astonishment.
thing—I know it—at the door—I "
Mitzi rose. Pauli flew to the door.
Her hand shook so that she could
hardly turn the knob. She said plead-
iuglv, as if asking for help, "Mitzi?"
She opened the door. The professor
stood there, wiping his wet boots on
the mat. He was very cold, his thin
worn overcoat soaked, lit. one ungloved hand he carried a string bag,
with small parcels In the bottom of
It—a meagre looking affair.
"Father, oh, hurry and come in by
the stove.   Have you got the sausage?"
"And  a  newspaper?"  Mitzi called,
eagerly.
The professor came iu.   Paull ran
her hands down his arms and sides.
"Oh, my dear, you're wet through!'
She took the hag and put it down.
Dr. Arndt smiled at her,
"No, only my coat.    Don't worry.
It's not a real rain.   Just one of those
miserable mists, a drizzle. Carl?"
"Not yet."
"Of course not.   It's far too early—
and the baby.    Did  Mueller come?"
"Yes, tho baby's doing beau.ifully.
If only we had some eggs and milk
we needn't worry a bit."
"If only—repeated Arndt.
"Did you say you bad a paper?"
"Here, In my pocket."
He fumbled  in  the pocket of the
coat he had taken off.
"There's not much In It. Too much,
rather. The usual casualty list is
longer than usual.   More victories."
Mitzi took the paper and relapsed
into her chair. Arndt sat down, and,
stooping, began to unlace his wet
hoots. Pauli set the table scantily— I
three plates—on the bare boards. I
You'll see!" she comforted. "It
can't go on like this; it will soon be
over."
Mitzi looked up from the black lists
her eyes devoured, dreading to find
that for which she sought. She said,
dimly:—
"Never over for me until I hear"
"Don't worry the old man bade her.
"Fri^z Is probably quite happy somewhere in a hospital. You can't rely on
the lists. And I'm not sure about the
victories!"
"Did you get the sausage?" asked
Pauli again, starting to untie the bag.
Arndt shook his head.
Her face  clouded;   she  caused,  a
loaf or bread  In  her  ham's;—
"Oh, I see. Well, it can't be helped,
however; we needn't have a fire in
tlie kitchen then."
"That bread you're holding carelessly." said her father with a certain
mordiant humor. " is more than worth
its wefght—in worthless money. It
cost seven thousand crowns. They
kept changing the prices. Every time
I counted my money again, every few
yards. It was worth a little less."
In silence Pauli brought him his
slippers from their place by the stove.
The professor went on:—
"Whenever they chalked up a new
figure people dropped out of the line.
It was pretty bad to watch. Mostly
women crying. Some men fought to
get nearer and were beaten by the
soldiers; there were times when it
almost came to a riot. Not the first
time. The windows in some of the
shops were smashed yesterday; a man
was killed. I—I fail to understand
how money can be worth nothing."
Paull Ifted a dish from the stove.
She said, low: —
"Dear, don't mind so much."
"The man next to me,' continued
Arndt, unheeding, "said that it was
people who were selling short who
caused the drop in values. Selling
crowns they didnt have—billions—so
that the value goes down and they
huy cheaper when the time comes to
deliver. I don't believe that. I can't
I don't believe that in all the world
there's a man low enough to make his
profit on the hunger of his countrymen!"
Paul! set the dish down.   With quite
nn air she announced: —
"Dinner!"
The professor drew a chair up to
the table and peered into the dish.
"Parsnips!"
"And herring!" added Pauli with
something of triumph.
Mitzi  tured a page of her paper.
She read aloud:—
"Another   British   Defeat"—
Paull's  eyes  grew  wide,  lost.    She
said:—
"I  wonder—if Bruce"—
Her father's glance was riveted on
and" one could get rolls.   Not now, I
imagine."
"We should make our own bread,"
said Mitzi.

gripped  the  edge  of  the  table.    His
voice rose, shrilly, out of all control;-
"Why? Is It more terrible to drown
women and children than to starve
them . Why? Anybody who is desperate enough will do anything. We're
all barbarians."
He raised his shaking clenched fists
in the air, a look of madness on his
old, flue face, his haggard 'ace. He
cried out hoarsely;—
"God   d "
He stopped. His curse, his curse
upon the enemy, Ihe British, was broken off as If It were a brittle thing. He
called like a child, shuddering with
terror In tbe dark: —
"Pauli!    Pauli!"
Her arms were around htm. Mitzi's
eyes were full of difficult tears. Arndt
turned to his daughter and put his
head, bent and humble, against her
breast as If he were the child and she
the parent.
"Don't let me hate, Pauli. Don't let
me become—a barbarian—don't"—
She stroked the thinning white hair
tn silence. Her lips moved then to
murmur endearment, comprehension,
comfort. Gently she forced him Into
a chair. He sat down weakly, his
knees giving. Mitzi, tlie back of her
dashed acros slier eyes, drew up her
chair at Pauli's silent signal. There
was a pause. Then the professor with
a quiet face bowed his head over the
table and the pitiful food. His voice
was very hushed, but it had strengtn
again, sanity and patience, even belief,
he prayed:—
"For what we are about to receive
may the Lord make us truly thankful."
CHAPTER XV
Arndt lifted his head and served j
Mitzi from the one common dish In i
the middle of the table. They all ate
for a time in silence. Pauli cut the j
bread.    She asked hopefully:—
"What happened to Judas?"
Arndt answered his mouth ironically twisted, "He went to a German"—
Pauli trying to smile, inquired. "I
see—for thirty pieces of silver?"
Her father shook his head. He replied gravely: —
"No one cares for beautiful things
any more. All that is over . All the
dreaming and the loveliness that colored  life—the poetry and  the joy"— j
Mttzi broke In hotly, "Anyway." she i
began, stopped and ended scornfully,
"The  Germans"—
Pauli looked at her in amazement.
"They are our friends." she reminded the other woman gently.
"No; they got us into this. Is that
friendship ?"
Pauli lifted her eyebrows and glanced at her father. She knew that he
remembered, as she did. Mitzi's warm
championship and enthusiasm at the
beginning of the war. She hoped he
would say nothing. He was silent,
however. What was the use? People's
viewpoints altered with the waxing
and waning of their larders. Any
philosophers would know thnt. Pauli
exclaimed  impatiently, as the bread
"But how? That takeB fuel, and
besides we are only allowed halt a
pound of flour a week."
"1 know. But one of the papers had
a recipe for making bread without
flour"	
The father and daughter flashed into
Interest. Odd how these trivialities
Impressed them. They were actually
eager to hear Mitzi's recipe. Paull
asked:—
"Really?  Tell us how!"
Little Mltzi looked as mysterious
as wise as the Delphic oracle might
1 ave appeared to avid seekers after
knowledge,   She answered:—
"Well, you take horse chestnuts"—
Arndt  nodded.
"It sounds palatable," he commented gravely; "1 doubt if it would give
people skin diseases as the other stuff
does."
Paull looked up from her plate.
"It shouldn't stick to the knife,"
she added, "and that would be a great
1 oon. I don't know why little things
Ike that are so Irritating."
"I saved the paper," Mltzi told them;
"I'll cut the recipe out and lend it to
you,  Pauli."
Paull was listening again. Surely
this time It was the baby—crying just
a very little. She went toward the
bedroom.

Reforestation
Much has been said recently about re-forestation
in B.C. The present forest is the result of natural
reforestation when the human hazard was not present
to defeat nature.
Natural re-stocking of cut over lands is now going
on, as may be seen almost everywhere, and nature will
again re-establish the forests if only Are is kept out.

Courtenay Boy
Hit By Car
What might have been a very serious accident occurred on Union street
on Saturday afternoon, when "Billy,"
the little son of Mr. and Mrs. B. W.
Tomllnson, of the Dyke Sawmill,
darted out onto the street between
parked cars and was knocked down
by a car driven by Mr. J. L. Dawley,
of the Courtenay Hotel. It was at
first feared that the little fellow had
sustained a fractured skull, but this
was found to be slight after he had
been examined at St. Joseph's Hospital. Apart from being somewhat
bruised, the child did not suffer any
serious Injury. No blame whatever
was attached to the driver of the car.
Death Came
Very Suddenly
Parksville, Aug. 8.—Mrs. Badger, for
some months a resident of this district, died very suddenly on the afternoon of Monday, Aug. 6th. Although
suffering from ill health for a long
time, Mrs. Badger was at the church
service on Sunday evening as usual,
so her death was quite a shock to the
comunity.
Epitaph
Here lies  a young salesman named
Phipps,
Who married on one of hlB trips,  .
A widow named Block,
Then died of the shock,
When he found there were six little
chips.

WHERE THE BEST PICTURES PLAY
The Seeoen ia Jtevic
w
I have seen "The Legion of
the Condemned," alone in tho
projection room, with no accompaniment saving the whirring of the machine, it held me
enthralled, enraptured. Every
heart string was tense—all
nerves taught. Viewer ctf a
thousand dims, it was with difficulty that I refrained from
leaping to cheer all the genius
responsible for the creation of
this masterpiece. God, what a
picture!
It is the living story of young
men who live suddenly, swiftly,
violently, and seek to die in the
same manner flying high above
the mud-mucked fields of Prance
To them the war Is an adventure, and death the most fascinating thing in life.
Prom its ingenious first flaaii
es to its final whirlwind climax.
the picture is superb in every
department. In story value it
is vivid with the combined
strength of an 0. Henry, a De
Maupassant, a Stephenson. In
cast it is a colorful melange of
superb characterizations. Two
new, startling stars scintillate
In the cinema heavens—Gary
Cooper, Fay Wray. In direction
It attains the topmost peaks of
artistry. In pictorial composition and photographic beauty it
is breath-taking.
I would bet my future hopes
that upon its first night—yea,
and every night thereafter—
there will be prolonged bursts
of that spontaneous applause
which emanates from a thrill-
bound audience as it senses the
glories of accomplishment.
It Is bigger than "Wings" -
Bigger than the biggest—better
than the best. A mighty triumph for Paramount.
I congratulate the world. It
has a treat ln store for it whan
"The Legion of the Condemned"
reaches the screen.
(Reprinted from the New York
Morning Telegraph, motion picture section, Herbert Cruik-
shank, editor.)
"The Legion ot the Condemned" has reached the screen and
will be shown at the Ilo-Ilo
Theatre. Friday and Saturday,
August 17th and 18th.
