SMITH, Auotioneer staff, explaining his absonco, "iia is a regular dare-devil, who isn't happy if he Isn't in the thick ot it." tJpntrlbutory to this success was the excellent work of our artillery and in particular a :tbe city today im lii.-. wny to the I-'ow Island gas field lo tesi, out the | gas there with a view to learning the ' possibility of oxtractinK gasoline or other highly volatile oil.-; ilierefrom. Mr. Bowling is groatl.^- interested in this work, and has alrpady covered the province from the Peace River country south this lav. At the Dingman and otlier wells in Okotoks field tests were made with the gas showing that a ffilrly high percentage ot gasoline can be extracted but the exact results ot the test are' j not yet known. This Gas Too Dry In the Bow Island field, however, it is not expected that gasoline -will be available from the gas wliifh Ik much more dry. However, .Mr. Dowling rather expects- to be nlilc lo secure a methane product whicli will probably increase the strengtli of kerosene so that it will bo equal to a distillate.-ranging in value fes a power fuel somewhere between gasoline and kerosenc. Soc Artesian Wells While in Bow I.sland .Air. Dowling will investigate the artesian wells which have iieen drilled .^outli of Grassy Lake' this ^;iimmcr'. He is greatly interested in the success of the artesian well ba'siu in tlio country and declaro.-i tliat tho discovery means ?15 per ncrc on the value of the land within tlie basin. Oil in Peace Speaking ot the Peace River field ho states tliat there is crude oil there, and that wells may lit' put down which will -i�ump about barrels a day of crude oil. The wells are slightly un-! der 1000 feet in dcjith. Going be.vond j that mark releases salt water which i rises and tlow.s ovpr the top of the pipe. While in the south .Mr. Dowling will' also Investigate the now well the Natural Gas Co. is putting down at Burn-well in the hope of striking an auxiliary gas flow._ .

BEING OONE fOR WOUiED SOLOiERS The work that Canada has-dono and is doing for her wounded soldiers in the way of hospital treatment and re-education is fully set forth in "Canada's Work for Wounded Soldiers," a fiva-reei serial produced by the Department of - Soldiers' Civil Re-es-tablibhment, and shortly to be exhibited in theatres throughout Canada. It is little realized by tho Canadian public that Canada leads the World in this work, her system having been copied by Australia, and, more receat-ly by the United States. The film shows every phase of the work, from the deck of a hospital ship in a Canadian port to the shop, office, or farm where the returned soldier'is working, after having been educated at government ex])ouse. Any man whose war wounds prevent him from resuming his pre-war occupation is entitled to such education, and is trained in a suitable tradc or profession. Some ~ of tho most interesting �sciences in the film are those illustrating occupational therapy-where men are encouraged to use injured muscles or mombers by being given some simple and useful work such as carpentry and woodcarvhig, which arc found to be particularly beneficial. Of special interest, not only to the general public, but to medical men are the scones showing tho use of the apparatus at Hart House, Toronto, and other places, for rostpring flexibility and po' iUiSj'VHTJS-Al.' r AW 1^ Ford and Service ' Of the Ford Car, itself, surely little need be said. Everyone knows its supreme value. Its reputation as a most-car-for-the-money automobile has penetrated to farthest regions and to all points of the compass. This reputation has been,, in no sense, a "lucky" happening. Excellent in design and long in value-to-the-dollar, as the Ford Car undebatnbly is. it could never have won its reputation had not the Company back of it recognized how essential Real Service to the buyers and owners ot Ford Cars was liound (o be. The juan paying -over his good money for a. motor car wants a car, not for part of the time, not for most of the time, but for all of the time. And the Ford-owhor can count on that! No matter where he may go. what'difficultios he may encounter, he 'Will find Ford Service almost at his instant call-at any rate, so near and so ready that the response for help will surprise and gratify him. Realize ihis-in every city and in every town of any size in Canada is located a Ford Dealer. It is the Ford Company's boast, as it has been their ambition, that, no matter where a motorist may tour, ho can find a Ford Dealer with a fully equipped Service Station ready to give him. the assi.'itance or advice bo wants. Ford Service Is a Service that is not a mere slogan, not a well-sounding phrase, but , A Very Real Thing We have on hand a COMPLETE STOCK OF REPAIRS AND ACCESSORIES of Ford Cars and Trucks and can fill any orders on short notice. FORD GARAGE C. C. McCREERY, Manager H. E.MEIBACH, Proprietor U take Ih4 unctrtmnty out ef tirt-bvying. IN previous talks -we have shown you that the durability of a tire depends on the quantity and quality of the materials used; and -we have already ahowo. you h.ow to detemiine the quuitity. But you cannot gauge th�s quality of rubber and fabric in a tire simply, by looking at it. You must be guided by the experience and reputation of the tire maker. The world's first pneumatic automobile tire and tube were made by Michelin back in 1895. Since'that time the House of Michelin (founded 1832) has concentrated on the production of pneumatic tires only, and today has factories in the United States, France, England and Italy, with selling branches in every comer of the world. Thus the. scientific brains of the entire' globe have been and are at Michelin's disposal. More and Better Materials is the Michelin watchword. Yet Michelin Tires are not high priced.
