I tried to forget tho poarls mid to

I smoked und considered lur some
time over thi;. An especially malignant foe inifiht rob or'even murder,
but it was almost ludicrous to think
of his carrying away by force MIsh
June's ninety pounds of austere llesh.
The solution, had It. not lieM for the
blood stiilns, might bave been u
peaceful one, leaving out Iho pearls,
altogether, but later developments
allowed Hint Iho peuns refused to bo
omitted. To my mind, however, at
that lime, the Issue seemed a double
one. 1 believed that some one, perhaps Harry Wardrop, had stolon the
pearls, llld.3 them in iho secret
closet, and disposed of them later.   I

Then l clung to tho   theory   thai
Miss Mnitl.iud had In en abducted, and
was being hi-iii tor ransom. Hut���and
1 sun . here���the abductor who would
meal an (iiii woman ond take her out
Into the May night without any covering���not even shoes���clad only in
her night clothes, would run an almost
certain risk of losing his prize by
pneumonia. For a second search had
shown nut nn article of weaving _i>-
panl missing from tho house.
JUSt before dinner I made a second
round of ilie house.    About a hundred
yards beyond tho hedge I found
circular trucks, bl'OOd and dcop where
iiii automobile had backed and turned.
The lane vim separated by high uedg-
ob of osngo orange from the proper-
lies "ti either side, and each house In
that neighborhood had .. drive of Its
own, which entered from 'I1" mall!
street, circled Die house and went out
as ll en me.
There wus no reason, or, so far as
I could see, no legitimate reason why
ii car should hnve slopped there, yet
II stepped and for some time. Docper
tracks In ihe sand Ol the side of ths
lane Showed lhat.
1 fell Unit I had made some progress. I had found whore tho pearls
had been hidden after I lio theft, nnd
this put Bolla out of tho question.
And 1 had found���or thought I had ���
the way in whirl. Miss .lane had been
taken away from Bellwood.
I enine hack oast tho long rear
Winn of the house Which contained, 1
presumed, the kitchen and the other
mysterious regions which only women
and architects comprohond. A loug
porch ran the length of tho wing, and
iib I passed 1 heard my name called.
In hero In the old laundry, Margery's voice repeated and I retraced
my i tops and went, up on tho porch.
At the very end of the wing, dismantled, piled nt the sides with firewood
and broken furniture, was an old laundry. Its tubs were rusty, Us walls
mildewed and streaked, an: It exhaled tho the musty odor of empty houses.
On Ihe floor in tho middle of tho room
undeniably dirty and disheveled, sat
Margery Fleming.
1 thought you were never coming
sho said petulantly. I have been here
alone for an hour.
I'm sure 1 never guoBsed it, 1 apologized. I should have boon only too
glad to como nnd sit with you.
Kho was fumbling with her hair,
which hung loosely knotted, over ono
small ear.
I hate to look ridiculous, she said
uhurply, und I detest being laughed
at. 1 have cried nnu 1 haven't nny

Now, she said when she had jabbed
the last hairpin Into place and tucked
i..y handkerchief into her belt, if you
have been sufficiently amused perhaps you will help me out o. here.
Sho brushed nslde her gown, nnd I
saw what had occurred. !-:ho was
sitting half over a trap door in the
floor, which had closed oa her skirts
and held her fast.
I was sure Robert had not, looked
carefully In the old wine cellar, she,
said, and then I remombenv' thiB trap
door opened Into it. It was the only
plaeo wo hadn't explored thoroughly,
I put a ladder down and looked

But Margery scouted the suggestion
with the proper scorn and demanded n
pair of scissors. She cut herself loose
with vicious snips, while I paraphrased the old nursery rhlme: She cut her
petticoats oil around about. Then Bhe
gathered np her outraged garments
and fled precipitately.
She was unusually dignified at dinner. Neither ot ns eared to eat, and

Agonizing Pain Prevented by Keeping
Nerviline Handy on tbe Shelf
Deadly cramps���tho symptoms are
uoi lo bo mistaken. Suddenly and
without warning (he patient, experiences such agony In the stomach as
to contort the cottntennnco and cause
blm lo cry aloud for help.
Then it is that the wonderful power ol' Nerviline can make Itself felt-
it  cures bo quickly.
"Last summer I was striken with a
frightful attack of cramps. I feared
tho pain in my stomach would kill
"My eyes bulged out and tho veins
in my forehead -stood out like whipcords.
"My cries attracted a neighbor, who
come to my assistance, and in a moment or two banded mo half u tea-
spoonful of Nerviline In somo sweetened water.
"it seemed as If an angel had charmed away the pain. In ten seconds I
was well. Norvlllne has a wonderful
name in this locality, and is considered best for cramps, diarrhoea, flatulence, stomach and bowel disorders. 1
urge all my friends to use Nerviline.

A certain cniincn. landscape artist
sold a picture to n wealthy woman of
Boston. The woman soon became tired of tho picture, because, ns she declared, it, lacked animation. So she
sent for another artist and asked him
to paint a man or a woman on the
road that ran through the middle of
the picture.
The artist did so, and when he met
the man who had painted tlie original
work he told him what ho had dene.
I had lhe temerity to alter a landscape
of yours the other day, he said. It
was' the one you sold to Mrs. W. Sbe

an old man walking down tho road.

road in that picture.
Why, yes there is- said the other.

It is a common thing In this country to seo whole families growing up
with nervoUB systems weakened by

That Is because many parents do

in tea.)

Without good red blood a man has a weak heart and poor nerve*. Thinness, of
the blood, or anaemia, is common in young folks as well as old. Especially it It
the case with those who work In illy ventilated factories-or thos* who are shut
up Indoors In winter time with a coal stove burning up the oxygen or emitting
carbonic i oxide) gas. This blood, or blood which lacks the red blood corpuscles,
in anaemic people may have been caused by lack of good fresh air breathed into
lungs, or by poor digestion or dyspepsia- Sometimes people suffer Intense
pain over the heart which Is not heart disease st all, but caused by indigestion,
whatever the cause, there's just one remedy that you can turn to - knowing
th-t it hat given satisfaction for over 40 years.

A Fallacy to Think That the Millers
Will Compete and Pay Premiums
llcgltia.��� From a recent report aner.r I
I the regulations to be made in ibo cs-j
taidlsliiiient of sample markets at Wit-
jnlpog and Fort William, an Interview]
iwas sought yesterday with C, A. Dm
I ning, general manager of tho Saskat
chewan   Co-operatlvo   Hlovator  coin-
pany.    Mr. Dunntug was asked
J    I understand Unit regulations pulling
in force sample markets at Winnipeg
I ami Fori  William uro to   be    Issiull
I shortly by the grain commission, audi
that the sample markets will he estah i
.llshed Borne time at iho beginning ,>f|
ill niher.     Is that correct? i
,\ir. Dunning���1 understand thai this
lis correct,   That II  Is lhe Intention
I of tlio Dominion grain commission to
put such regulations Into effect In De-'
comber. t
Will iho establishment of such sam-i
pie markets bo of benefit to the producer under Iho present conditions?
NO, 1 do nol believe ll will, foi' lhe
reason that r. sample market means
tlio mixing of grade in terminal elevators, in fact, there would bo no object In buying grain on a sample mar-1
hot except wllh the object of mixing
grades to the minimum.
Would not our Canadian millers
compote on the sample market for a
certain type of grain'.'
Practically nil of the great milling
industries of the country have their
own line of collecting elevators and
have it splendid opportunity at the present time to gather whatever type of
grain they w..nt without bidding on
a sample market.
Is it not a fact that a largo number
of farmers believe that a sample
market would mean higher prices to
tho producer?
There is a belie! to that effect based
on tho assumption that the European
importer at tho present, time is getting something for which he docs not
pay in the surplus value of grades.
Sample market advocates argue that
European importers pay for the minimum of tho grade, and frequently receive tho average, and occasionally
the maximum of the grade, and the
Idea of sample market advocates is
that by mixing all grades to the mint-
mum that this advantage and surplus
value can be turned into the pockets
of the mixer d the western farmers.
In this connection 1 believe that the
llrst man to get his fingers on surplus
profit, If any exists, would be tho mixer, and the farmei depends for his
share of it if it exists upi i competition between mixers on tho Bample
Do vou really believe that the European 'importer is getting something
that he does not pay for under the
present system?
No, emphatically uo.
But some carjoes are naturally
minimum, average and maximum ot
the grade, aK they not?
But the keenness of competition on
every European ma.-ket for any possible surplus of value in a grade ensures every ounce of value being paid
for The fact th ' while Canadian
wheat is tendeiable ou the Liverpool
option it is seldom actually tendered
for the reason tint a premium can be
obtained for it on the floor of the exchange, which makes it too valuable
to tender on the option, is proof that
surplus values are being paiu for now.
I am i'umly convinced that any mixing
and jonsefluent degrading of that val-
uo of Canadian certificates on the
world's markets will have a depressing effect oa the price paid to the producer. There will undoubtedly be
premiums offered, and paid, if the
sample market is established but the
chief point for the producer to remember Is that the price cf the grade
upon which the premium is based will
be depreciated in order to allow of
premiums being paid.

her small daughter with the arithmetic lesson for the next day, and after
struggling through the problems secured what appeared to be satisfactory results. Next day when tho little

asked with some curiosity:
Were your problems all correct,
No, mamma, fiioy wore every one
wrong, replied the child.
All wrong? repeated the amazed
mother.     Oh, I'm l. sorry.
Well, mamma, said the little one,

A childrens Sunday .School party-
will be held at the Agricultural
hall this Thursday evening.
The Courtenay Literary and Debating Society met on Monday
evening when each of the
present members spoke on his
favourite hero, Mrs. Pankhurst
and colleagues, Capt Scott, General Gordon, Abraham Lincoln,
Whittier, and many others provided interesting subjects. Tbe
next meeting will be ladies' night
and the discussion will be, Resolved
"That the Expenditure on Foreign
Missions has been justified by results." Two good leaders are
chosen for this debate. A social
will be part of the program. The
ladies will bring cake. A very
entertaining evening is expected.
The annual meeting of the Courtenay Conservative Association will
take place in the Opera House tonight (Thursday.) A report of the
business transacted during the year
will be read. The election of
officers for the comiiiR year will be
the principal business of the meeting. All the officers of the Association retire, but are eligable for reelection. We think the Conservatives cannot do better than return
all the old officers and executive,
they have worked hard for the good
of the town and district during the
last session at both loss of time
and money to themselves, but they
don't mind so long as their efforts
are appreciated. All men who are

Knights of Pythias
Tsolum Lodge No 52, Local
Lodge of K lights of Pythias, held
their first meeting of the new vear
on Thursday evening last. Considerable buisness of importance
was transacted; the reports of the
trustees being most gratifying,
pointing towards the unqualified
success of the institution, of one of
the foremost fraternal societies on
the North American Continent, in
the Comox District. One of the
more important events of the meeting was the installation of the officers
for the ensuing   term   as   follows:

Dear Sir:���If there is any doubt
in the minds of Courtenay people
about Municipal ownership, let
them take Nelson, B. C, with a
population in 1911 of 5,636, as an
example. This city owns its own
Waterworks system, a 11,000 h. p.
hydro electric plant, the gas plant
and last week agreed to purchase
the Street Railway system the vote
being 404 for and 84 against; it is
the only city in B. C. owing its
own gas plant, and will be the first
and only one owning its street car
Courtenay in a very short time
will have as large a population as
Nelson and it is not a moment too
soon to get right down to business,
Let us hope that in this rew year
a more business like attitude and
spirit will prevail with the small
minority of the Courtenay people
who want to run things to suit
themselves; if they have done this
in the past they will not be allowed
to do so in the future.

" The Race Track Committee will
hold a masquerade ball about the
middle of February. All home
made costumes. Liberal prizes will

Mr. James Knight, who is lying
ill at the Riverside is slowly improving, and will be taken to his
home at Campbell River
as soon as possible. Mrs.}

was taken ill.
M. Manson, M.P.P., was in town
for a few hours last Thursday, going from here to Cumberland. He
was on the way to Victoria, where
the house meets to-day, and was
looking up his constituenis to tee
what was needed.
On Friday evening of next week
the race track committee will hold
another of their popular dances In
the Agricultural ball. The floor,
which has not been in good condition for some time, is being scraped
this week, and will be in the best
possible shape. Good music will
also be a feature.
The heavy rains of the past few
days have put the roads in a very
bad condition. Heavy autos goine
at high speed are largely responsible
for this. The water gathers in
little pools, and forms mud, then
along comes a car and splashes the
whole lot out, with the result that
in a very short time a deep hole is
formed. A suggestion has been
made that autos be barred from using country roads during the winter season. This the farmers think
would help some, and the matter
was brought to Mr. Manson's attention while here, with the request that he bring the matter up
in the housr.

The British connection wllh the Hom-

of the laRl century, but British auth-
o ily was not d.finitely established,
and In isf>4 Richard Burton's expedition was attacked at Berbera. In
1874 Ibe ambition of Ismail l'asba,
Kbadlve of Kgypt, led him to occupy
itr��c posts of Tajura, Ilerbera and Kiil-
har���ai well as Harra* In tho hinterland. Ton years later, In consequence

With various Somali tribes, and the

known as tbe Mad Mullah, iirsl came

At first the Mullah's Influence was

of supernatural powers, he gathered
around him a strong following. In
the next few years Britain suffered
several disastrous reverses and during
th- tlrst months of 1910 the advanced
posts wero withdrawn and the .rlt-

of course, be healthy aud of exemplary character.

Dear Sir:���For   the   benefit of
those who were not present at a recent   meeting   of   the   Creamery
Association, the announcement in
your last issue of the forthcoming
meeting on Tuesday 2��nd of   the
Cow Testing Association needs some
j explanation.   At the me-.ting the I
. advisability of forming a cow test-
:ing association in this district was!
unanimously agreeil upon, and   it]
; was dtcided to invite  Mr.   Rive, j
,the Government Dairy Instructor,
to come up and explain  to us iu I
what way and upon what conditions
the  Government are prepared to
help us. !
Mr. Rive is coming to talk to us
on the subject on Tuesday, Jan. 22, j
' and it is to be hoped that all who |
are interested in  intelligent  dairy |
farming will make a special effort
to be present. .
The formation of a Cow Testing
Association iu this district is of the
utmost importance. Mr. Rive will
no doubt explain how important it
is, but without wishing to forestall
what he will tell us I would like
briefly to explain what a Cow
Testing Association is, because I
have found there is an idea that it
has something to do with Tuberculosis testing It has nothing to
do with Tuberculosis.
A Cow Testing Association employs a competant man to visit the
herds of its various members at
stated intervals for the purpose of
testing samples of milk from each
individual in the herd. He not
only tests the milk for per centage
of butterfat, but also weighs ..the
feed given, and is thereby able to
compute accurately the profit or
loss that any individual cow in a
herd is making.
The advantage of substituting
definite knowledge for uncertain
guess-work should be obivious to
all buisnesslike farmers, and more
particularly to those who contemplate sending their milk to the
new condensery.
I believe there is no such matter
of vital importance both to the
individual dairvman and to the
dairy community, as periodical
testing of cows.   Believe me
Yours truly

Vain wishes through my bosom
whiz, and scratch my soul like
teasels; and when I have the rhcu-
matiz, I wish I had the measles.
My heart is never satisfied, aud in
it there are thronging vain hopes
for things which are denied���a
wild, insistant longing. The doctor says I have the gout, prescribing rest and quiet; he's thrown all
fancy victuals out, and I've a hermit's diet; and as I chew the bean
and pea, or take my dish of sago,
I sigh; "How happv I'might be, if
I could have lumbago!" The blessings which I now enjoy I do not
prize or treasure, but find in all a
base alloy, and envy him his
pleasure who has the shingles or
the mumps, the grip or influenzv;
and so I nurse my doleful dumps
until I'm in a frenzy. It is an evil
thing, my friends, to be so constituted, that every blessing which
descends, finds one but poorly
suited. Unfortunate that man of
woe whom nothing ever pleases,
who envies people, as they go, their
several diseases. Lets be content
with what we have, be gay as any
colt is, and on our bunions spread
the salve, and on our boils the
