LADYSMITH SHIPPING
The Ladysmith Chronicle oi
Tuesday says4: "An evidence o
the increasing demand lor Exien
sior coal was manifested this
morning in the presence of a
large number of boats in the harbor for the local product. This
demand applies to all the mines
on Vancouver Island."
The Extension mines of the
Canadian Collieries (Dunsmuir),
Ltd. produce the famous Wtlling-
ton coal, second only to the Comox
coal of Cumberland. The ships
may come this way later on when
the Dominion Government gives
the coal industry the protection
it requires in the shape of an import duty of two cfcnia per gallon on fuel oil. At present the
local mines, capable of producing 4000 tons of coal per day,
are lying idle or working from 7
to 10 days per month. But never
theless it if-good news to know
that the shipping at Ladysmith
is on the increase.
CANNOT FORCE BRITISH NOW
London, Sept. 15.—Speaking in
a crowded house Premier Asquith
announced in the British Parliament today that the cost of the
war to Britain had risen to $21,-
000,000 a day, and moved a new
vote of credit of $1,250,000,000.
Had a pin dropped in the historic House when the Prime Minister made his announcement it
could have been plainly heard.
I'he vast assemblage sat absolutely silent, and only when he had
finished his brief business-like
address was there a sound. Then
a flutter of cheers and hand-clapping came from both the ministerial and the opposition benches,
while in the packed galleries
women leaned forward and waved
their handkerchiefs wildly. Significant admission was made by
the Premier that conscription may
be near. He did not refer to it
directly, but he did declare that
for the past three weeks recruiting had fallen off greatly. The
dec'aration was believed to indicate that compulsory service was
x possibility in the near future.
Discussing the situation in the
various theatres of the War, Mr.
AsoHrh asserted that the position
of the British troops had been
. reiiKihened, and that all chance
chat they could be forced by the
Germans was believed to be past.
He asserted that heavy reinforce
ments had been landed at the
Dardanelles, where the greatest
efforts were being made to force
•be straits and cut a way to Constantinople. The Prime Minister
announced that nearly 3,000,000
men had enlisted since the beginning of the war. This means that
if all these are equipped there are
now not less than 4,000,000 Britons under arms.

Faith and Hope.
"Be thou the rainbow to the stormsof life,
The evening beam that smiles the clouds
away,
And tints to-rhorrow with prophetic ray."
—-Byron.
Hope is to mankind in general
what the North Star is to the
tempest-tossed manner—by Hope
we steer our course through life,
and, although we may be destined never to attain all that we
desire, still Hope lights and cheers
us on our way,
Hope is, perhaps, the first of
feelings that distinguish man
from the meaner animals; it is
the evidence of the existence
of something loftier^ than mere
instinct: it is, as it were, the eye
of the mind looking forward into
futurity. Without hope our exis-
ence —constituted as we are-
would be an insufferaable bondage. It is that terrible mental
disease—the loss of hope -to
which we must attribute those
cases of self-destruction which
have to be but too frequently recorded—that horror <jf the down-
^soul which perceives no bright
beams in the future. The healthy
mind is ever looking forward to
some great task to be achieved,
and some bright reward to be
bravely won. The present may
have its pleasures, as it always
has its pains; but those pleasures
are but transitory, and would
speedily be overborne by accompanying troubles were the
swimmer in the great sea of life
not buoyed'up by the hope of
reaching those lights upon the
shore. To look forward is a law
of our nature; it is the secret of
all our successes. To it we owe
all the triumphs of science, all
the beauties of art, all the blessings by which we are surrounded.
There are cheap corsets, but when the most graceful
and comfortable corsets cost but little more than the
cheap ones, why wear any but the best ?
Comfort and an air of refinement become
second nature to wearers of

ff
If men do not look forward with
the eye of hope, where would be
their incentive to struggle onward in the journey that leads
from birth to death? For what
purpose would men with pen,
and pencil, and chisel- -each man
after his bent—create th ngs of
beauty which are joys for ever,
if there were not something to
look forward to as.the reward of
genius, and talent and industry?
Had it not been for this looking
forward, we might, possibly,
have been little better than the
wild Indian who roams the prairie
—seeking satisfaction for today,
nor caring'for, nor thinking of
to-morrow. Were it not for this
beautiful ambition of the mind,
should we ever have beheld the
wondrous galleries of art that
grace the palaces of earth,  or
those stately structures—the palaces themselves; or the civilized
cities in which they are set—cities
that sit as so many coronals upon
the brows of nations? Were it
not for this looking forward,
| science today would still have
I been buried in darkness, and we
I should never have beheld those
magnificent monuments we now
see thick around us of the mighty
victories won by mind over matter. Tne elements would have
remained free and unfettered—
the tyrant and master of man,
instead of being, as they are today, his slave and servant.
All these things, and thousands
of things as great, have we done
by looking forward with the eye
of hope; and incalculable conquests are yet before us, only to
be  sought  out  with the same
bright light. To this feeling
nations owe their greatness, and.
men their exaltation and their
happiness, Nelson said, when
going into action, "Now for a
peerage or Westminster Abbey!"
Greatness in this life is immortality after. A sister feeling sits
in the bosoms of all men -it may
take firmer hold of some than of
others—urging them onward and
upward in the fight for fame.
And as we look forward to
success in this life, so with sir-
cere faith we should look forward
to happiness in the next. Looking
forward in .hope, therefore, is
beyond all question an article of
our heavenly, as well as of our
earthly, faith.

THE TELEPHONE
SUPERSEDES
THE  REVOLVER
There is no necessity for firearms in the house, if you have a telephone.
If you are alarmed at night, reach for your extension telephone and send out
your appeal for help. Noiselessly, quickly the message is speeded forth. No
need to turn on a light and search for your loaded revolver, with the probable danger of shooting a member of your family. Besides, loaded weapons
are dangerous where there are children.
The telephone is quicker, surer, safer.
When you telephone, you know in a moment that your appeal has been
heard; you are assured that help is being sent.
All the Company's telephones are available for service day and night.
To know that the means of instant communication is available at any time
assures security and gives an absolute sense of relief.

TO DEFEAT MILITARISM
No modern nation is wholly
possessed by militarism; no modern nation is wholly free from
it. If only all the civilized men
were on one side and all the barbarians on the other in life's
long campaign, tow easy1 it
would be to comprehend each
several battle. But they never
are. All the Puritans were not
saints; all the cavaliers were not
sinners. But the victory of the
Puritans gave England liberty.
The issue was confused then;
the issue is confused now. It Is
always confused to the combatants engaged in it, and generally
to the onlookers. But when the
soil now watered by blood is
bringing forth harvests, and
birds are singing where now cannons are thundering, and church
bells are calling to worship where
now trumpets are calling to deadly battle, the world will see that
the issue now being fought out
on the plains of Belgium and
France in the west, and in Galicia, Poland, and Prussia in the
east, was the issue between civilization and barbarism, between
power sought to obtain authority
and power used to render service.
The Allies are fighting the
battles of Germany for her. In
1848 pacific Germany rose in
revolt against the militarism of
Prussia and was defeated. The
militarism which then dominated
Germany is to-day attempting
to dominate Europe, The free
peoples of Europe have risen in
revolt against this attempt. They
will -not be defeated. And when
the war is over no people will
have mora reason to be grateful
for Germany's defeat than the
people of peaceful, industrial
Germany.
THE FOOL AND OUR FOREST
Goodbye to the fool with the em-
ty gun;
Forgotten his bid for fame.
Though he kills his friend, it only
counts one,
And that, nowadays, is tame.
The fool who playfully rrcks the
boat
Is on the front page no more.
He may rank high with the fools
afloat,
But his glory is gore ashore.
There's the fool with women, the
fool with wine,
And  the fool who games with"'
strangers,
And the joy-ride fool (he does
well in his line
By   combining   these   ancient
dangers.)
But they're all still down in the
primer class.
Mere novices taking a flver,
Compared with the prize-taking
criminal ass,
The fool in the woods with fire.
A few hearts break for the deeds
they've, done
In their pitiful amateur way,
But fire slays dozens where they
slay one,
And scourges a state in a day.
For  the  ruined home and the
smokeless stack
And the worker unemployed,
Know   a  hundred .years    shall
never bring back
The things his .match destroyed.
E. T. Allen.
AN ATTRACTIVE PAMPHLET
Under the direction of the
Hon. the Minister of Lands, at
Victoria, an attractive phamphler.
entitled "British Columbia Timber" has been prepared for distribution among the buyers in
overseas markets. It is intended
to draw the attention of importers
overseas to the forest products
of the province, and especially to
the facilities for exporting British Columbia lumber. Consisting
of nearly forty pages, and containing nearly thirty illustrations, the pamphlet treats of the
principal exportable woods, their
qualities and uses, together with
information    concerning    their
strength values, and suitability
ror various uses.

Aphorisms
who thinks
suspects he
There is no greater fool than he
himself wise; no wiser than he who
is a fool.
The great weakness of most people lies in the
fact that their neighbors know them better than
they know themselves.
People who are always taking care of their
health are like misers, who are hoarding a treasure which they have never spirit enough to enjoy.
He who freely praii.es what he means to purchase, and he who ennumerates the faults of what
he means to sell, may set up a partnership with
honesty.
The whole art of conversation is not only to
say the right thing in the right place, but, far
more difficult still, to leave unsaid the wrong
thing at the temDting moment.
Do not talk about yourself or your family to the
exclusion of other topics. What if you are clever,
and a little more so than other people; it may not
be that other folks will think so, whatever they
ought to do.
Let us with caution indulge the supposition
that mortality can be maintained without religion.
Reason and experience both forbid us to expect
that national mortality can prevail in exclusion
of religious principle.
Discontent is like ink poured into water, which
fills the whole fountain full of blackness. It casts
a cloud over the mind, and renders it more occupied about the evil which disquiets it than about
the means of removing it.
The weak sinews become strong by their conflict with difficulties. Hope is born in the long
night of watching and tears. Faith visits us in
defeat and disoppointment, amid the consciousness of earthly fraility and the crumbling tombstones of mortality.
In reverence is the chief joy and power of life;
reverence for what is pure and bright in your
own youth; for what is true and tried in the age
of others; for all that is gracious among the living,
great among the dead, ?nd marvellous in the
the powers that cannot die.
Biographies of great, but especially of good
men, are most instructive and useful as helps,
guides, and incentives to others. Some of the
best are always equivalent to gospels—teaching
high living, high thinking, and energetic action
for their own and the world's good.
A man is not a man from his face and body,
but from the good of his love and the truth of
his wisdom; and because a man is a man by
virtue of these principles, every man is also his
own truth and his own good, or his cwn love and
his own wisdom; and without these he is not a man.
