SCORES NEW
GREEK CABINET
London, Sept. 22.—The Times,
in an editorial urging sterner
methods by theEntente in Greece,
says the new Greek cabinet is a
collection of puppets and intriguers whose position would be
merely ludicrous were it not
fraught with embarrassment to
the Allies. They have heen called
to office for the sole object of
threatening the Entente. " We
must end this state of affairs
which daily becomes more dangerous to the interests of the
Entente."

EMPLOYMENT FOR
The City Council held their regular meeting in the Council Chambers on Monday evening. Present
His Worship Mayor Parnham,
Aid. Macdonald, Henderson,
Bate, Brown and Carey.
A communication was received
from the secretary of the Comox
Agricultural and Industrial Association, stating the b air would be
held at Courtenay on Sept. 21
and 22nd., with a full program of
sports on the 22nd., and asking
the Council to declare Friday,
the 22nd., a civic holiday. This
was received and filed and a half
day granted.
A copy of the resolution passed
by the City Council of Nanaimo
concerning Alien enemies was received and endorsed. Copy of
resolutions passed by the Mayor
and Council of Niagara Falls,
Canada, demanding equal pay
for officers and privates throughout Canada during the period of
the war. In presenting the resolution the Council of Niagara
Falls pointed out the fact that
the Canadian Army is a cosmopolitan one and has been recruited from every walk and avenue
of life and that in thousands of
instances the officers are the superiors of the privates only through the accident of war. In private life they are absolutely equal. This was received and endorsed.
The following accounts were
referred to the Finance committee for payment.
S. Davis, .75; Cumberland Hotel $2; Hugh Mitchell $26.25;
B. C. Telephone .45; Simon Leiser & Co., Ltd., $19.75; C. H.
Tarbell & Son, $2.80; Alex. McKinnon, Jll; The Islander S22.50

$11; total #39.75.
At the request of Aid. Henderson the following were appointed
trustees of the Returned Soldiers'
Employment Committee; George

Sprustan, Bevan, and Robert
Henderson, Cumberland.
The Council instructed the
Board of Wo-ks and the Fire
Wardens to inspect the Kilpat-
rick building on Dunsmuir Ave
nue, with full power to act.
The first of the semi-monthly
dances, for the season, was held
in llo Ilo Hall on Thursday evening and a thoroughly enjoyable
time was had by those attending,
About fifty couples were pms
ent, Courtenay, Union Bay and
Headquarters being well repre
sented, as well as Cumberland,
The music, which was supplied
by Miss Lowdon and Mr. Harold
Woods, apparently gave every
satisfaction as dances were re'
peatedly encored. The next dance
will be held on Tuesday, October
10th., and it is expected there
will again be a good attendance
from all points.
WOMEN'S PATRIOTIC
SOCIETY MEET
Monday night a feature film
which, from all accounts would
be hard to beat, will be shown at
the Ilo Ilo. It is a four-act fea
ture entitled "A Lonesome
Heart" and features Margarita
Fischer in what is probably one
of her best productions. It will
be shown on Monday only. On
Tuesday the regular episode of
Mary Page, and on Wednesday
another strong four-act drama,
"The Barnstormers."
The third annual meeting of
the Women's Patriotic Society
was held on Sept. 20th. There
was a general review of the work
done in the past. The total a-
mount collected from subscriptions, Tag Day, Red Cross Teas
etc., was $1400.10 in cash, besides
numbers of finished garments,
linen for the hospitals and supplies for the hospital of the 102nd.
Bott.
Letters of appreciation for the
work done were lead from the
Vancouver Branch. A letter was
read from theLieut-Gov., stating
that a Tag Day in behalf of the
British Red Cross Society would
be held on Oct. 19th., throughout
the Dominion and requested our
aid.
It was decided that the Tag
Day should be held on the October pay-day when members of
society will call at every house
for subscriptions and Red Cross
boxes will be at various points on
Dunsmuir Avenue.
It was decided that the Red
Cross Teas should be discontinued
for the present, but insead, people are invited to make a monthly
subscription to the Canadian Red
Cross Society.
Opportunity will be given for
promises to subscribe on the October pay-day and the money will
be called for each month until
further notice. Please note that
a meeting for further business
will be held on Monday next at
3.30 p.m. at the home of Mrs.
Hood.
GOVERNMENT LOAN
ALREADY FILLED UP
Ottawa, Sept. 20-The Finance
Department is refusing to give
out any figures as to the total
subscriptions to the war loan,
but the general impression in
the capital is that with Ihe fifty
million from the Canadian banks,
the loan is already oversubscribed. The Western applications
are now bulking heavily in the
mails, and, judging from the
numbers and amounts, the West
is exceedingly prosperous at the
present time. The Western subscriptions are understood to be
much heavier than a year ago.
The loan is open until Satur-
lay, and it will beat least another week before the final applications are in from British Columbia and Prince Edward Island.
It would not be surprising if the
total subscirptions ran to $270,-
000,000.
The small subscribers will be
given priority, and it is possible
that the banks will receive no
allotments from their fifty million dollar subscriptions.
The most gratifying feature of
the present loan is the large number of small subscribers. Canadian investors are evidently being educated up to the value of
Government bonds as an investment. The first loan was largely taken by the larger financial
corporations and rich investors.
They have again patriotically given a lead for the Dominion, but a
much larger percentage of the
present loan will be in amounts
of $10,000 and less.
Free Grain To Farmers
By instructions of the Hon.
Minister of Agriculture, a distribution of superior sorts of
grain and potatoes will be made
during the coming winter and
spring to Canadian farmers.
The samples for general distribution will consist of spring
wheat (about 5 lbs,), white oats
(about 4 lbs.), barley (about 5
lbs.),andfieldpeas (about51bs.).
These will be sent out from Ottawa. A distribution of potatoes
in samples of about 3 lbs, will be
carried on from several of the
experimental farms, the Central
Farm at Ottawa' supplying only
the provinces of Ontario and
Quebec. All samples will be
sent free by mail.
Only one sample of grain and
potatoes can be sent to e ich farm.
As the supply of seed is limited,
farmers are advised to apply
early. Requests received after
the end of December will prob
ably be too late.
Anyone desiring a sample
should write (post free) to the
Dominion Cerealist, Experimen
'.al Farm, Ottawa, for an appli
cation blank,
J. H. Presdale,
Director,  Dominion Experimental Farms.   '
Oukeof Devonshire Speaks
London. Sept. 21. - The Duke
of Devonshire, receiving yesterday as a compliment on his appointment to the Governor-Generalship of Canada the freedom
of the City of Eastbourne, said
that if certain individuals on the
continent of Europe hsd recognized the true relationship existing between all portions of the
British Empire this war would
never have taken place.
Germany, said His Grace, never
had made a bigger miscalculation
than in imagining that it only required a signal from herself for
the Dominions to rush into her
arms or set up independencies.
The Empire, he believed, is only
beginning to show the power of
which it is capable.

London, Sept. 22.-The latest
official communication from
Bucharest confirms the Entente
reports that the great battle in
Dobrudja has ended in the de
feat of the Central Powers after
six days' fighting. The battle
began last Friday and gradually
increased in scope and intensity
until Tuesday evening, with the
result that on Wednesday the
Germans, Bulgars and Turks,
crushed, were forced to withdraw, burning villages in their
line of retreat in an effort to retard their pursuers.
The same communication, referring to the Transylania theatre
announces that a Roumanian
force has entered Ot'derpei, bet

THE SECRET 01'VICTORY.
"England is the driving force
in this war," says a Hamburg
paper, and it adds: "Britain
will never yield until forced by
the iron of necessity." We do
not think this gives full credit to
the resolution and undaunted
courage of our Allies, but undoubtedly Germany has awakened to the fact that the nation,
whose fighting power on land
she affected to despise, is the
most terrible of all her enemies.
But thc awakening is not in Germany alone. Not even the British people themselves were conscious of their tremendous power. For years they had been enjoying the ease that comes from
peace and prosperity, and not a
few among us wondered just how
we would stand an extreme
strain. We were all, however,
sustained by a sub-consciousness
that somehow we would prove
ourselves equal to any task that
might devolve upon us. Neutral
nations especially have been
vastly impressed with what it
means when the British people
have been fully aroused, and we
find the New York Tribune saying:
"Sadly, grimly, the British are
going now about their work.
There is no hymn of hate in their
resources; they have no "Mar-
sellaise;" theirs will be a slow,
silent but relentless action. What
you have to see and feel is millions of men who are at last a-
wake to the fact that all that life
means to them, nationally, morally, spiritually, has been threatened. After the tradition of his
race and the fashion of his nation the Englishman, millions of
him, has now gone out to kill
and be killed until the work that
is lo be done is done. Once that
spirit was clear in England, then
those of us who believe that all
that America as well as all that
democracy held best in the world
was at stake in this war could afford to roll up the war maps and
put aside tlie battle reports. The
incidental changes would mean
nothing. "They come so slowly," the Frenchmen told you of
his allies six months ago, but in
saying this he added out of his
lace consciousness of half a thousand years of Anglo-French con-
flict. "bul when they do come
Ihey will never stop."
History is only repeating itself. Britain stands today as she
stood in the days of the Napoleonic wars, as the guardian of
human liberty and the rights of
the smaller nations, She exhibited then the same tenacity of
purpose as she is displaying now
and the wonderful military genius who sneered at the British
people as a "nation of shopkeepers" met the same fate as is in
store for the tyrant of Potsdam
who has referred to Kitchener's
army as "cold-blooded shop-keepers of the Thames."—Daily Colonist.

Two Irishmen died. Pat went
to heaven while Mike went to the

two spent in their respective a-

'phone and the following conversation took place:
Mike: "Hello! Pat, how are
you getting along up there and
what are you doing?"
Pat: "I'm shining stars. What
are you doing?"
Mike: I'm shoveling coal. How
many hours a day do you work?"
Pat: "I work ten hours a day.
How long do you work?"
Mike: "I only work eight hours
a day but I have lots of help.
A little boy had praved continually for several weeks for the
Lord to give him a little brother.
Finally he said, 'It's no use, the
Lord don't hear me." Within a

shown,not one little brother but
two. He said: "I'm awfully glad
that I quit praying when I did
'Cause if I hadn't there would
have been three of 'em."

PAID IM IN FULL
Savings of Manufacturer's Stenographer Saved Employer
From Ruin and Disgrace.
By GEORGE ELMER COBB.
After five years of hard work Wilfred Ashton walked down the Mens ol
the neat little factory he hr ' ■' ■tr
lnated, a ruined man.    Th a,
was bright and beautifie uke
new wine, all nature E ; port
ing ln the brilliant sin,! slut his
heart was like lead. Ihe plant was
ln the bands of a receiver, and bt
vas a bankrupt.
Wardells had done this—Wardells.
the upstarts, the business plratOB, The
elder of that firm had boon taken In
off the' street penniless by Ashton,
had' been given work, had learned the
secrets of the business, aud had gone
out to exploit them on his own account The rival house manufactured
a counting machine. Iu snme way
Wardell had secured tha sole right lo
manufacture a machine the sale nf
which was Ashton's chief source ol
revenue. Trade fell off. Wardells
spread and flourished like a green
banyou tree. Ashton & Co. went down
hill, fast.
And now—ruin! Reckoning up anxiously, Wilfred had found that the
plant and hia other resources would
pay off about seventy-five per cent, of
th* debts. This lt waa that crushed
hlm. Son of a business man of clean,
straight record, proud of his honorable business reputation, what had
teen swept away was as nothing to
him if he could but have paid one hundred cents on the dollar. He reached
the oftico of bis lawyer, dejected and
hopeless.
"We have an offer for the assets In
bulk," explained the attorney. "It will
square the secured Indebtedness entirely. It will also take care of all tbe
other liabilities, except about two
[thousand."
"If I could only reach that!" exclaimed Wilfred. "It Is those creditors, small, struggling firms, tbat need
their money. Is there no way I can
.reach this deficit?"
"A way has been opened," announced the lawyer, "a remarkable
one. There la the list ot tbe unsecured creditors," and he pushed over
"We Have an Offer for the Assets In
Bulk."
i n written page, "and here Is two thousand, handed to me by a brother at
torney, representing a mysterious ell-
lent who does not wish to be known."
"You amaze me," cried Wilfred, his
.face shining, bis eyes Ailing with
[grateful tears, "who could have done
[me this kind act?"
He thought of two brothers of his
Bead mother. Family differences had
lestranged them, but surely this
Igraclous help In tbe time of need had
Icome from them. Wilfred signed (ho
I. O. U. extended to him by the lawyer.
[His heart seemed singing within him.
"A mere matter of form," remarked
'the attorney—"the money will never
lie asked for."
"But It will be given," Insisted Wilfred. "Bless tho glvor! All tho obstacles before me are as trifles now-
one hundred cents on the dollar! My
name without the shadow of a stain,
and life all beforo me!"
He was treading air as he left the
lawyer's office. He would yet build
a grand edifice on Ihe ruins of the
old! He took from his pocket a card
Oiled with memoranda.
There was an office boy recently In
his employ to recommend, some trifling personal bills to adjust, and—
Miss Bonney.
His face brightened when he was
home again, with thoughts of the true,
loyal persons who had been not only
his employees, but his friends. Miss
honney! Ills heart gladdened aB hn
'ecalled the occasion, three years before, when he had given this poor,
friendless girl,, a position In his office.
Her gratitude, urging the most devoted service, had made hlm respect
and value her. She had been "his
right hand man." More than once,
gazing at her sweet quiet face, be
aad thought of a home with such n
precious being as Its mistress, hut
waited, waited, "until his ship had
come In for certain."
Four days previous, when It w-as
known that tlie business was on the
rocks, Amy Bonney had gone home,
111. Wilfred remembered now thnt
she had not sent for her salary. He
consulted his little store of money,
i   Wilfred found her ln a neat, modest
aattsUEQ.  bar ."oil   tnnlhsss'   Ita   lutlisut-
Keeper. She blushed and paled, and
looked wistful and then trembled, as
he banded ber ti. money. Her eyes
Slowed sympathetically with bis own
when he told of his unkuown benefactor.
"I shall not forget the most helpful
assistant I ever hafl, when I get on
my feet again," said Wilfred brightly.
"I am very sorry to see you out of
employment."
"Oh, I shall ston find a new position," declared Amy. "A relative left
us a small amount of money a short
while ago, and I could almost wait
till you need a stenographer again, Mr.
Ashton. whlcb I know will be soon.
It Is all you—you!" she cried, In a
burst of fervent emotion, "who gave
me work and encouragement when we
were down at the lowest ebb. I shall
never forget it."
"It seems tn me that I am receiving
nothing but blessings in my own darkest hour." replied Wilfred movingly
"There Is another thing." said Amy.
"Vou rememhpr Mr. .ludson. the old
Inventor who was hurt at your plant?
You pensioned hlm off, you know.
Kver since then he has heen trying
to Invent a new cniinting machine. I
—that is, I have encouraged him. He
was here yesterday, and he is sure,
oh, so very sure, that he Is near to
perfecting his Invention.
Two evenings later a messenger
brought Wilfred a note, asking him
to call at the home of Miss Bonney.
When he arrived be found old Abel
Judson tbere.
."I've made It!" cried tho inventor
enthusiastically. "The double ratchet
did it. Tlie dream of years! Aud all
for you, who were so kind to mo, and
this dear girl, who financed me! My
Invention Is perfected—a counting machine that will drive Wardells out of
the field."
It was true. One hour later, after
an Inspection of the Invention, Wilfred knew that Judson had at last won
fame and a fortune.
Only one thing would the Inventor
lagree to—that Wilfred was to become
his partner. In three months capital
{waa found, In six the old plant was
running again. At the end of the
year Wilfred and Amy were man and
wife.
| "I am making money so fast," be
(Bald to his happy helpmate one even-
jlng, "that I will be able to pay up
[the two thousand dollars so generously given me when I failed."
Amy reached within her pocket.
[she drew out a scrap of paper. In
[amazement Wilfred regarded the I.
JO. U.
"Don't you understand?" sho cried
[ln delight, and tore the document to
|Bcraps—"paid!"
"You—you furnished that money!"
[exclaimed the dumfounded Wilfred.
"Yes, my all for you, tho bravest,
truest friend I ever knew," replied
Amy raptly, "and now the dearest,
best husband in all the world!"

HIS BROTHER WAS AT HOME
Little    Virginia    Darkey    Explained
That His Relative Lived In
the County Jell.
A certain Virginia lawyer was ln
the habit of driving In from his country placo each morning to his office,
conveniently placed, after tho fashion
of the country, in tho court Iioubo
yard. Just back of the court house
stood tho county Jail, and tho barred
windows of the cells looked down
Upon the row of bitching posts used
by the members of the bar, tho judge,
the sheriff, the clerk, the mcmbcrB of
the grand jury, and other citizens ol
weight and standing. As our lawyer
drove up his eye lighted on the small
negro, known as llamfat. because of
his shining countenance. Instead of
hurrying up to take the horse as was
his custom, however, llamfat was engaged In conversation wlfh somebody
behind one of the barred windows.
"HI, there, you young rascal," called the lawyer, "como hero."
Hamfat came.
"Wbo was that you were tolltlng lo
In the jail?" camo tho question stern,
ly.
"Yas, suh, dat my brother, suh."
"What Ib your   brother   doing   In
Jail?"
"He live dar, sub.   Dat he homo."
Conveniently   Placed.
A considerable number of Americans and some Europeans connected
with the diplomatic servloe are aware
that there are strceln lu Washington
named for the letterB of the alphabet.
Peoplo who live In the eapltul frequently write I street, "Eyo street;"
T street. "Ten street," and 1' Btroet,
"Pea street;" but It was left for a
car conductor Imported from London
to ring nnother change on those
abused street names. A woman pm-
scnger—n stranger ln tho city—hn 1
asked this conductor lo put her off nt
Lutheran church—which happens to
be on L street.
-   "H'eye street," called the conductor
!on reaching I street.
"Kay," he shouted at tho next corner, and then, at the next;
"H'ell—all out for tho church."
So the Phonograph Happened.
I was singing to the mouthpiece of
a telephone, when the vibrations of
my voice caused a flno Bteel point to
[pierce one of my fingers held Just be-
hind It. That set me to thinking. If
'i could record the motions of the point
'and sent It over the same surface afterward I saw no reason why the thing
would pot talk. 1 determined (o make
a machine that would work accurately,
and gave my assistants the necessary
[Instructions, telling thom what I hnd
discovered. That's the whole story.
The phonograph Is the result of the
prlcklifg ot a finger.--Thomas A. EMI- KO

range but excels either in flexibility of operation. With
the Electric Range you cook under ideal conditions
beause
Each cooking unit can be switched tohifih,
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.
