Courtenay on Friday afternoon presented a very gala appearance, and
ivau decorated ln grand style for tlie
reception of H.R.H. the Prince of
Wales. There were thousands of
people and hundreds of motor cars In
evidence long before the Royal party
arrived.
Two arches were erected on the
main street, one for Courtenay and
the other for Cumberland, through
which the Royal party motored on the
way to the Agricultural Grounds. All
the shops on each side of the street
were gaily decorated with flags and
bunting, Courtenay Bridge being covered with evergreens.
His Royal Highness the Prince ot
Wales arrived In his special car at
Courtenay at 4 p.m., and was met at
the station by Mayor Duncan and aldermen of the City of Courtenay and
Mayor MacDonald and aldermen of the
City of Cumberland. Mayor Duncan
presented the Prince with the freedom
of lite city of Courtenay, and an
address of welcome.
The Prince then proceeded ln a
special car, In which were Mayor
Duncan and Mayor MacDonald, down
to the Agricultural Grounds, where
the massed children of the various
schools of the district, numbering over
one thousand, waited to sing and welcome the Prince.
On the way the Prince's car was
stopped ln order to allow him to view
a train load ot logs belonging to tbe
Comox Logging & Railway Co., which
passed in front of the Royal party.
Again on the Courtenay Bridge the
car was stopped and the Prince got
out to view some ot the big salmon
iu the Courtenay River.
Arriving at the Grounds where the
returned soldiers tn the district were
drawn up two deep, he inspected them,
shaking hands with every ono of them,
aud speaking to a number. He then
wished to see the representatives of
the Daughters of thc Empire, and was
Introduced to them by Mayor Duncan.
The Prince was accompanied by Sir
Lionel Halsey and several other gentle
men. Ho thon ascended the grand
stand, which was draped with the
Royal colors, and Mayor Duncan read
the address of welcome. The Prlnoo
replied lu a very celar and cultured
voice, thanking the citizens of Courtenay for their very kind welcome, and
regretting that his stay was so short.
He also requested that the school child
ren be granted a holiday on Monday,
ln honor of his visit.
Each child was presented with a
medal In commenoratlon of thc visit
of the Prince to this district.
The Cumberland City Band played
the National Anthem when everyone
stood to attention.
The school children, led by Mr.
Chris Edwards, sang "O, Canada," and
"God Bless the Prince of Wales."
The Royal party then proceeded to
Merville, calling at St. Joseph's Hospital, Comox, where the Prlnco visited
some returned soldiers In that Institution. At Merville the Prince opened
the new school house, and was most
Interested ln the work of the returned
soldiers in clearing the land.
The General Manager's Peerless car
of the Canadian Collieries (Dunsmuir)
Ltd., came up from Victoria on Thursday, P. Falllck, chauffeur, and proceeded to Courtenay on Friday afternoon and was placed at the disposal
of His Royal Highness the Prince of
Wallcs during his tour of the Comox
District.
Transportation arrangements wore
especially made by tbe Canadian Collieries (Dunsmuir), Ltd., to have the
school children of the various districts
including Bevan, Union Bay, Royston
and other places tn Courtenay, to give
His Royal Highness a royal welcome.
The children who had been under thc
direction of Mr. Edwards, of Cumberland, for tho past week, sang very
nicely.
Although thousands thronged the
roads and hundreds of autos were lu
evidence one of the most pleasant
features of the Royal visit was the
luck of accidents that so often marks
the assembling of a huge crowd. This
was no doubt due to tho splendid management of the police department.

COURTENAY NEWS
In the Courtenay police court tlie
proprietors of the Beaver lun were
charged with having in their posBOB-
sion beer exceeding 2.50 percent proof
spirit. Mi*. P. P. Harrison, counsel for
the defence, raised Ihe point that tlie
prosecution having failed to prove the
signature and ollicial character ol tho
person who made and signed tlie certificate of analysis, there was therefore no proper, evidence before the
court proving that the beer contained
an Illegal amount of alcohol, counsel
urging that the certificate In question
would have to be proved, aa the Act
did not provide expressly that proof
ot signature, etc., should be dispensed
with. The defence claimed that they
bad bought the beer In good faith
In the open market and therefore
assumed that tlie same was made in
accordance witli the law, and Hint they
had no practical means of testing the
same, or of otherwise finding out
wbether or no Hie contents contained
an execs of alcohol. Magistral"

hu>n the United States Fedoration Ber-
', •.■■ ■- Board's review of I 'iPinesri con-
diJions in August. Not only are some
foodstuffs doeiining in cost to the uon-
auraer, but the price of wearing apparel, such as textiles and shoes, has
rIso bei ti affected, the re* lew Bays,
Buslnoas continues :il an "extremely
lilgli level," and confidence of a smis-
Cactory solution of the wage and price
probloniH waa reported from all soc-
UptiH ol tin- country,
"During AugUBt, factorB which had
nol hitherto arrested much attention
oxerciBod greal Influence on the business situation," the board's statement
said. "Reference is made, of course,
to tlie problem nr commodity prices,
hi particular those going to umke up
tiie cost of living, and to the conse-
iiueut condition of labor unrest,.
Whereas previously emphaBis had
been placed upon the great activity
displayed by business, tho problem of
price readjustment and the difficulties
connected with it now bull, largest.
Discussion in connection with this readjustment is particularly centred upon tiie problem of the relation of
wages and prices.
"A movement toward lower prices
appears to bo in process in certain directions, prices of certain foodstuffs
are declining und a feeling of conservatism is noticeable in certain linos,
such as tlie textile and shoe industries,
iu wit it-li price advances had previously been most marked, 'resales' ut
same concession in price lieiiiK reported.
"Reports from the Federal Reserve
agents generally indicate a feeling of
confidence that a satisfactory solution
or the price and wage problems will
be reached. The actual volume of
business transacted continues at an
extremely high level for the present
season of the year, uuhough transportation difficulties and shortage of
labor have been hampering factors lu
certain lines. The agricultural outlook on tbe whole is distinctly less
favorable than a mouth ago. although
tbe large acreage sown in certain
cases will compensate for decreased
yield per acre. Cotton in particular
is in poor condition.
"Reflecting the feeling of uncertainty which prevails, the volume of
speculation lias abated, and declines
iu the price of securities have occurred. The general business situation,
however,  is at  bottom  strong.
Discussing labor conditions, tbe
board recorded that reports from the
majority of districts designate tbe situation as "unsettled."
In certain districts a decreasing efficiency or labor is remarked, which
is ascribed to relaxation from wartime pressure for maximum production. At the same time additional
demands made by the workers have
! ■■ iu granted, in largo part due to the

from the buffet as seemed to her valuable —her ideas and mine on that
point do not jibe—into tho waste-
paper baskets to be hidden underground. . . While 1 stood watching
her there was a tremendous explosion, and I rushed into the garden.
Thupicket, his gun on his shoulder,
was at the gate,
"What was that?" I called to htm.
"Bridge," he replied. "The English
divisions are destroying the bridges
on the Marne as they cross. That
means that another division is over."
1 asked him* which bridge it was
but of course he did not know. While
I was standing there, trying to locate
it by tho smoke, an English officer,
who looked of middle age, tall, clean-
cut, rode down the road ou u chesnut
horse, as slight, as clean-CUt, and well-
groomed as himself. He rose in his
stirrups to look off at the plain before
ho saw me. Then he looked at mo,
then up at the flags flying over the
gate—saw the Stars and Stripes-
smiled,  and  dismounted.
"American, l see," he said.
I told him I was.
"Live there?" said he,
1 told htm that 1 did.
lie looked me over a moment before
he said, "Please invite me into your
garden and show mo that view."
i was delighted, I opened the gate,
and he strolled In and sauntered with
a long slow stride—a long-legged
stride—out on to the lawn and right
down to the hedge and looked off.
"Beautiful," ho said, as ho took out
his lield-glass, und turned up the map-
case, which hung at his side. "What
town is that?" he asked, pointing to
the  foreground,
I told him it was Mareuill-on-the
Marne.
"How far off is it?" ho questioned.
1 told him it was about two miles,
and Meau was about the same distance beyond it.
"What (own is that?" he asked,
pointing up the bill.
I explained that the town on the
horizon was Penchard—not really a
town, only a village; and lower
down, between Penchard and Mesuv,
wore Neufmortier and Chauconfn.

THE new Ford .Electrical System is as great an
achievement as the Ford Motor.
No better starting and lighting system is supplied
with any car—at any price.
See it for yourself. See it work. It is a complete

Battery—built into the Ford Motor—a product
of the Ford plant.
The Ford car is also equipped with the Standard
Magneto to provide ignition independent of the
batteries.
The whole system is controlled from an instrument
board en the cowl.
It is now sapplied as Standard Equipment on all
Ford Enclosed Models.

ONE OF THE GREATEST HELPS TO
GOOD TELEPHONE SERVICE
Telephoning is regarded as so easy that many
people do not take the trouble to see that they telephone correctly, One should speak directly into the
instrument, with the lips but a short distance away.
When that is done, the voice does not need to be loud,
and, moreover, the person at the other end can hear
distinctly.
When children- do so much telephoning, it would
be well to instruct them to telephone properly.

SURELY it is every woman's right
to have a range like the Kootenay!
—a range that she can depend on—a
"O range that is a real joy to work with
a range easy to keep clean—a range that
"keeps the oven hot" with a small fire.
The cooking-top is burnished brighter than steel; it
never needs blacklead. The oven wall of nickeled steel
is easily cleaned. The duplex grates clean down the fire
With a single swing of the lever.      Sea this famous range.

Standing, sitting and walking correctly
are the first essentials to good health
and that elusive charm we call style
LL women wish to be well; but all women
do not appreciate the vital importance
of correct corsetry as an essential to
good health. The well-known medical
authority, Alice S. Cutler, M.D., warns us:
"As a physician who knows that if it were
not for ill-fitting and the wrong kind of
corsets we would have very few female in
valids, I am naturally determined to do
everything in my power to educate women
in the proper fitting of corsets. Most
learned physicians now recognize the modern
corset as a hygienically healthful garment
and one that is often the best means of providing corrective support for many bodily
ailments."

have attained their unquestioned superiority
by assisting nature to perfect expression.
Every Gossard is hygienically correct. Properly fitted to the figure for which it was
designed it will give scientific support to
abdominal and back muscles, with no chance
of undue pressure at the waistline; the organs
of nutrition will be free from pressure; the
erect posture which is induced will encourage
deep breathing and thc diaphragmatic mus
cles become strong with use. A woman so
corseted will have the undeniable beauty of
health and that grace of body, standing,
sitting, or walking, which is best expressed
in the one word, style.
We unreservedly recommend Gossard Corsets ■
as the complete expression of modern corsetry.
Our highly specialized corset service is maintained with a full appreciation of the exacting
needs of the modern, active woman.
