Comox Turkey Shoot
The annual Turkey Shoot was
held at Comox on Friday the 20th,
and was most successful in every
respect. The day was an ideal one
for shooting and about fifty of the
marksmen of the district thoroughly
enjoyed the sport. Mr. C. A.
Martin, of the Elk hotel, had
charge of the arrangements, which
were carried out in an excellent
manner. Over forty turkeys went
to those who were fortunate enough
to have a steady hand. The name
and cumber of turkeys won by
each individual is as follows: Jack

High Cost of Living
Sixty Years Ago
Those who grumble at the antics
of that jade, the high cost of living
have really nothing to complain of.
Sixty years ago in California the
price of food was enormous, according to a letter written at the
time by one Jarvis Cable. He
wrote from Hangtowu in Califor-
nior. The following is an extract
from his letter:
"Vegetables we have to do without most of the time on account of
the high prices. We have to-day
bought six pounds of potatoes for
50 cents a pound." The 50 cents
was the cheapest price that ! ad
ever been paid for potatoes in
The writer of the  letter  was  a
careful man,   apparently,   for  lie
goes on to say:    "I   buy   no such
thing any turther  than   what   we I
deem necessary to  keep  off the

He Knew Her.
A man down in North Carolina
lived with his wife seven years, and
during that time he came to have a I
very healthy regard for her physical
superiority. After meekly submitting to all the kickingand cuffing
that he could stand he left home and
look up his residence at the home of
a farmer about seven miles distance.
One day he was working in the
field, when his employer brought
him the message that some one
wanted to speak to him over the
telephone presumably his wife. He
didn't disobey the authority of the
woman, even at a distance, and he
hurried to answer the call.
He had had no experience with
the telephone, and it was with
wonder and hesitation that he picked up the receiver. About that
time lightning struck the line aud
the shock threw him to the floor.
Rising from the floor with a look
of amazement and a dubious look at
the instrument he said softly: "I'll
be dog-goned if it wasn't her."���

In April Miss Allien a I'lly looked at
the snowy bloom of her big cherry tree,
���nd sighed anxiously.
"It looks nn If there was going to lit
a sight of fruit ibis year If lite pesky
birds don't eat 'cm nil up." she suld to
herself. then iiloud she Maidenly
shrieked. "Here. ,\iui. boy, don'I you
dare touch tbem blossoms"
"I was only picking u few flowers,
ma'am." be apologized "I wanted
tbem fur my iiiuiiuiiii "
"Those are nol Dowers," returned
Miss Albertii severely, "Those would
tinve been cherries lu .Inly If you bud
left them alone. One. two. three-lira���
nine cherries you've picked off my tree,
young num."
The boy looked from her lined nml
careworn face to the fragrant snow of
blooms over his head. "There's plenty
more flowers, luu'iitn." he suld wistfully, eitending the crushed twigs he
beld. "hut I suppose you better take
these.   They're yours."
Miss Alberts snatched the blossoms
from his hand and tossed them toward
a little mound of wilted dandelion
roots she had been digging out of the
furf. "Hasn't your mother taught you
It's wicked to steal?" she demanded.
The boy winced, but lie squared his
���boulders and answered sturdily: "Of
course she's told me that, ma'am. It's
me���myself���that did It. She wouldn't
'prove of me doing It."
"Well, I should hope not," ejaculated
Alberta, with a fleeting glance toward,
the roof of tbe little blown house next
door.   "When did you move In. boy?"
"Yesterday," be answered, "aud ray
mamma's di'elfle tired today."
"What Is your name?"
"Duncan Pearly Bartlett. That's my
papa's name too."
April passed Into May ��� May Into
June���and then csine July, sultry and
hot. with the rich odor of overripe
fruits In Alberta's shrubby garden.
Taster than she could convert the berries Into caus of amber and ruby tinted preserves tbey ripened on tbe
bushes, nnd pirate robins swooped to
���natch titbits for the gaping mouths
tbat crowded tbe nests.
"Scat!" Albertii would cry, waving
her gingham apron at tbe feathered
"Oh. twee���wee���weeeeee!" Ihe robins
would answer saucily as they dashed
���way, only to return later and repeat
tbe foray.
"Drat "em!" anil Alberta would
wblsk Indoors to rescue the scorching
���agar from the fire.
"If the cherries bad only waited a
little longer!" she groaned one hot day
as she looked from the kitchen window Into the branches of (lie cherry
tree, where the rich red fruit hung
lu thick clusters. "If I can only get
this currant Jell off my 'tands"-
"Do yon want a boy to pick cherries?" asked Duncan Bartlett from the
doorway, where he stood hat In hand
"My mamma says 1 can pick on shares
If yon want me to and I'm careful not
to fall."
Alberta looked at htm suspiciously.
He was seven .veal's old and small for
his age. but he was stroug aud wiry
and hud au open, chubby countenance
tbat made him look still younger. Be
wore a clean suit of overalls, and bis
brown feet were bare.
"I don't like to have my fruit picked

and a long ladder and watched tbe

rounds until be disappeared among tbe
green branches.
Just before noon Duncan appeared at
the door staggering under a pall of
luselons cherries. Per��pir��tton stream-
ad down his sunburned nose and cherries stained bis lips.
"How many you got there-eight
quarts? Well, you get two quarts out

and dumped tbem In a - paper bag.

Livestock Means Success

raising is merely n side lino when It

the Kansas Parmer,    The tuurkcl  is i
right,  al   hoiiie  In   tihe  toed  lot   and

White;  Pine Culls  Now  in  Demand
a peculiar feature of our rent luin-
ber demand 'n thn old white pine sections of Hi" North is thf extraordinary requirement fur low grade stook.
It is so persistent and devouring that
it taken in mills no ranks thai no or
30 years nun they would have been
considered refuse, III only for the
roughest kind of patching up of sheds,
and when accumulation becami! too
burdensome they were thrown Into
rtie burner or used to build wharves
>r roadways, of for firewood, Grading
downward has come w I till the demand
for box material, until three-men
hoards, as they hnve been jocosely
called, are now graded as No. 5 or
anything below that. Tho civil for
low-grade stuff has become so gen
��ral and Insistent, that such stuff Is
more snlonblo than the medium and
better qualities. This feature Is true
not only of the lumber market of the
Northern States, but pertains also to
that of Canada, At Toronto the demand for the lower grades of plain
is especially active and large, so that
there Is a veritable shortage of mill
culls nnd what are culled dead pickings, in it, This condition with re-
spent to the lumber market of Ontario shows how closely the lumber trade
of that province Is connected with
that of this country, the same requirements for cull lumber���namely, for
nox manufacture���prevailing In Mint
province as in the northern part of
the United States. The wny In
which the cull lumber of the Northern States and Canada Is being used
up almost to the last carload has
more than ordinary significance. It
means that anything In the shape of
a tree or log Is being utilized In the
way of sawed product, nnd that limner that was once considered usable
only as firewood t�� now being converted Into lumber that actually sells
quicker than good stock.���American

When you begin to sniff sntl feel a
burning sensation in the nasal passages,
or when a tickling irritation in jour
throat starts you coughing, the first
important thing is to act at once. It's
the neglected cold that becomes troublesome and dangerous.
The second important thing to do is
to take Na-Dru-Co Syrup of Linseed,
Licorice and CVilorodyne, and keep it up
till the cold disappears entirely.
Na-Dru-Co Syrup of Linseed, Licorice
and Chlorodyne is absolutely free from
harmful drugs, and can safely be given
even to moderately young children.
It is pleasant tasting and quick acting,
promptly relieving the irritation of the
throat and nostrils, loosening the

checking the cold.

So steadily doo,s anaemia undermine
the health of young, growing girls and

are bloodless, more or less, and In
many easts neglect has allowed anaemia to develop Into hopeless decline.
There Is 11 security and new strength
for weak, tired girls and women In
Dr. Williams' Pink Pills for Pale

ilie continual backache* of anaemia.
They drive away hnidaolKM, the low
spirits, the palpitation of the over-
worked heart and tho tits nf nervous-
noss that mark the women whose

wasting frames. Dr. Williams' Pink
Pills have given health to unhappy
anaemlcs in cases too numerous to
record. Her,e Is one example, Miss
Hn.ttie B. White, Whitehall, Ont,,
says:���"Seine two years ago I became
very much run down. I consulted u
doctor who told me that It was 11 bad
case ot anaemia nnd nervousness. I
had most of tho symptoms that accompany this trouble, such as headaches,
a tired feelinK. poor appetite, and pallor. The doctor's medicine did not
seom to help me and then I began
changing front one medicine to another, but with no better results.
Finally at 'the suggestion of my mother I decided to try Dr. Williams' Pink
Pills. I got two boxes and by the
time T had taken them 1 began to feel
better. This cheered me very much,
and I continued using tlhe Pills until
I had taken nine or ten boxes, when
I was again enjoying the very best
of health, nind had gained In weight as
well. I have proved In my case that
Dr. Williams' Pink Pills are a cure
for anaemia, and can recommend
them to similar sufferers,"

What Is  Behind Courtenay ?
Third of a Series of Three Articles
on Courtenay.
By Colin Campbell
"Don't put your name down   and
your money tip and then let go.
Catch hold firmly   and   pull   with
the rest.
Get under and lift,don't be a leaner
Don't be a kicker or a knocker.
Don't be a drone or a figurehead.
Give your home stores a chance,
lie a real live, red hot enthusiast.
Help your own town first."
The above quotations about stun
up my two previous articles on this
important subject. To enlarge on
this subject would be to enter into
the superfluous. As I stand on
the "Sivvash hill" and look across
the flats toward Courtenay, or look
toward the "glazier" from Mundells
place, or view the level laud from
Ball residence toward the town, and
see the logging locomotive going
puffing through the tall timbers,
with the smoke of the milling camps
at comox lake aud Cumberland rising up at the foot hills like incense
to the god of wealth, when I see all
this and think ot the question
What is behind courtenay"? I
laugh when I see what is around.
I wonder why we are so blind to
what is ours? Do we want to sec?
Do some of us want to sleep longer
than old Rip Van Winkle? What
are we doing in preparation for the
new railway coming in? Will it
eonie here and go past without our
knowing it? Will it come and find
US with doused "glims" and the
gasoline lank empty, and the pressure gauge registering zero? Every
little jerk-water place, and np
"neck-of the-woods" in the whole
of Canada but lias a boost club.
Every place but courtenay (which
has more reason than anyplace) is
standing on tip-toe and hollering
it's head oil" forrecognizion. livery
town and hamlet is endeavouring to
I button bole the passer-by so that it
can add more to its number. All
1 that is wanted to start the fire-
! works in courtenay is to get a few
j of those individuals together who
j are uot dead to their own interests,
I or blind to the possibilities of enhancing their assetts, or to put it in
plain words, those individuals who
are after the ' 'stuff". Get them together and show them'how others
have made barrels of money out of
less capital by far than those we
have in courtenay, It was my intention to try again and celebrate
Rabby Burns' anniversary with a
banquet, since thinking it over I
believe that Rabby is a long time
dead aud while nothing would give
me more pleasure than to sing the
praises bf the bard of Bonny Scot-
laud. I would rather talk about
Courtenay, it too has been a long
time dead, but by these old eternal
stumps I'll do my darndest to bring
her to life. It has been said that it
is absolutely necessary to agree
with a Scotchman or else kill him.
This being so, the people of courtenay had better accept my views of
courtenay and the neighborhood
right from the start. It is my intention to secure the co-operation
of a few others to set ou foot the
first "Boost courtenay Banquet"
and'endevour to set the ball rolling.
I will endevour if possible to have
it a mixed (male and female) affair
audit' we cannot work up enthusiasm
without the aid of high balls and
fire water I will give courtenay up
as a dead one, and turn it over to
the undertaker at the river bank.
So look out for the "Boost courtenay Banquet". It will be within
reach of all property owners and
Belter a tramp in the woods than
one iu the kitchen.
If misery likes   company,   marriage is apt to make good after all.
