were perfectly satisfied, but subse*
fluently it wus deolded to brief n well-
known K.C, The K.C. waa engaged In u political campaign and be asked a fee which was thought to be absolutely prohibitive, but the Client
thought it advisable to secure his services, To the client's surprise, the
drat counsel engaged explained that
now lie wns by the etiquette of the
bar Junior, and was entitled to a fee
equal to two-lbirds of the fee wh'ch
Ihe K.C. who had been briefed tit the
big figure, was to receive. The original Junior also explained thnt he was
entitled to a fee equal to two-thirds
of the fee paid to the counsel who
was to have been his leader, but who
had become Junior as the result of the
introduction of the eminent K.C. Aa
counsel were satisfied in the first ln-
mnco with the fees they were to
have received, It was hardly necessary
to say how absurd a scandal auch a
rule wna.
So serious bud this question of big
fees become, that City people declined
to muke auch exorbitant payments to
Ihese fancy society counsel and were
inclined to go to arbitration upon
points which should be legitimately
fettled in the high courts.    .
The chairman, C, L. Samson, said
the society had already appointed a
committee to deal with the subject.
It was thought however, that the resolution would strengthen the committee's hand, and after discussion It was
carried.

more than 17,000 miles by Robert
Slack, u student of tlie International

look a Hying tuur of the country, with
the object of stirring up enthusiasm
tor aviation among other students.
A deputation from lhe schools waited on Colonel Seely al lhe war ollite
and asked him to accept the monoplane, offered In a spirit of loyally us
a gift. 10 the nation.
I have been puzzled, aald Colonel
Heely, In accepting the monoplane, lo
understand the connection' between
the International Correspondence
Schools and Ihe art of Hying; but one
tiling is clear, and that is that the students of the schools are exceptionally
alert, alive, far-seeing and patriotic.
1 have received many deputations in
tbls room, he added, but this one Is
exceptional, because, while other deputations asked for something this
one wants to give me something.
Later, speaking at a luncheon given
at the Westminster Palace Hotel to
celebrate the presentation, Colonel
Seely said: ���
After all, we want two things In lhe
science of aviation. We want not
only the machines; we want the men
with the nerve and the courage and
the skill and the judgment to fly them.
I can ussure you that we are not losing sight of the national importance of
the science of aviation.
1 am not going to nnticipato now
the statement I shall have to make to
parliament of what has been done, but
1 can say that a very remarkable advance has been made not only in the
war ollice. but outside in the science
of aviation.

OUR RIBS DISAPPEARING
Scientist Says Man of Future Will be
Inferior Product
Paris, Prance,���The man of the future, according to Ad. A. I*\ lo Double
professor of medicine at Tours, will
have u large head, fewer teeth and
shorter arms than the mnn of today,
and will compute with hlni unfavorably .11 stature.   *
Among the primitive races In Australia, tho professor slates, it is nut. uncommon to llnd natives with thirty-six
01' even more teeth, but the white man
of tomorrow will be lucky If In* has
twenty-eight. Then* Is a tendency
for the llrst, eleventh and twelfth ribs
to disappear, thus leaving nine instead
of twelve on either side of the body.
Legs and arms are destined to
shrink in length, but the hand, which
today shows an immense progress
compared with that of our remote ancestors, will continue to progress in
ihe direction of the Independence of
the fingers.      The Ilttlo toe will become smaller and smaller.
Advices from Vancouver state thnt
after being laid up since November,
during the winter schedule of the
Grand Trunk Pacific winter service,
the s��. Prince George is to be taken
over to Esquimau for her annual
overhauling and painting, after which
she will take the place of the Prince
Rupert on March 1st, while the latter
vessel is likewise hauled out at Esquimau to prepare for the semi weekly
service early next spring.
Captain McKenzie the new Commodore of the G.T.P. fleet who ls in
command of the Prince Rupert, will
command the Prince George, while
her sister ship Is being overhauled, but
just, previous to the commencement ot
the semi-weekly service it. is understood that there will be a general promotion of officers and it. is probable
that the chief officer of one of the two
.boats will receive the permanent, command of the Prince George.

Interlaken.���Measurements of >.he
glaciers of lhe llinter Rhine district
(Canton Grissons) show that they
have advanced during 1012. The advance of the Paradise glacier was
thirty-seven feel, of the Zapport glacier forty feet, and of the Tambo glacier thirty feet. It is known that Ihe
glaciers of the Alps have advanced
and lost in length in past centuries, .1
fact pointing to alterations of wet and

One refuses to be Tried by Magistrate
Because He is a Jew
Paris, France.���Exciting incidents
marked the trial of two Camelots du
Hoi, M. Charles Maurras, the well-
known writer and member of the staff
of the principal royalist paper, and
M. de Couplgny, They were accused
of assaulting several persons who refused to shorn 'Vive le Hot.' The incident took place at Versailles on December 1.
After a banquet  about 400  Royalists, or' Camelots du Roi, went lo the
courtyard of the palace and made a
demonstration In front of the statue!
of Louis XIV.        According'  to    the
prosecution, a railway employe, who j
with his wife and friend, was about to
Inspect the palace, was surrounded by ]
the demonstrators, and because he re- ]
fused to shout 'Vive le Roil' he was,
knocked down, and so badly hurt that
he could  not  work  for  a  fortnight. I
Two policemen who came to the res-
cue also received kicks and blows and |
five soldiers and a sergeant had to 1
fight with the lioters to prevent the 1
disturbance from spreading.
According to the evidence    of   1 he j
sergeant, who had several teeth broken,  one  of  the  prisoners  threatened
him with a revolver.
The court, was packed with Royalists, who frequently interrupted lhe
proceeding with shouts of 'Vive le
Hoi.' The presiding magistrate was
M. Worms, and when he put a question M, Maurras said: You are a Jew,
and I will not defend myself before u
Jewish judge. 1 refuse to answer
questions put by a judge who I.i not
.1' French nationality. .Maurras pi r
slsted In his refusal to answer questions.
Contradictory statements were
made by the witnesses, some abso lire-
ly identifying the prisoners, others
declaring that the accused did not
commit the assault. But Ihe accused were found guilty, de Couplgny being sent to prison for four months
and Maurras to eight months. They
were also ordered to pay $2,00 to the
railway employe as compensation.
The decision was received with uproar and cries of 'Vive le Roil' Down
with ihe Republic, were raised.
Circumstantial Evidence
A young wife was In tears a few
mornings ago, when her mother called. When asked what, was the mutter she replied that her husband was
out late the night before and had
been to a drinking party.
What makes you think he had been
to a drinking party'' asked the mother,
He came home, sobbed  the young
wife, wearing a phonograph bom for a

Strangled With Asthma Is the only
expression that seems to convey what
is endured from an attack of this
t-oithle. The relief from Dr. J. D.
Kellogg's Asthma Remedy Is beyond
measure. Where all was suffering
there come? comfort and rest. Breathing becomes normal and the bronchial
lubes completely cleared. This unequalled remedy Is worth many times
its price to all who use it.

Constipation
is an en-my within the camp. It will
undermine the strongest constitution
and ruin the most vigorous health.
It leads to indigestion, biliousness,
impure blood, bad complexion, sick
headaches, and is one of the most
frequent causes of appendicitis. To
neglect it is slow suicide. Dr. Morse's

Constipation. They are entirely

Paris, France.���A daring and care-
I fully planned robbery took place In
j Paris, when a messenger employed by
' the Credit Lyonnais was   robbed   of
$11,140.
The messenger was Instructed while
' on/hls rounds to call on a lady living
I In the Rue Dauphine. Her name was
j stated to have been offered as guar-
i antee by an Individual who said he
' desired to effect a loan from the hank.
I The messenger was informed by the
lady that  she  knew  nothing of the
person in question.
He was going downstairs, when two
men jumped out from a dark corner
I of the unl'ghted staircase and throw-
I ing a handful of pepper into his face
, temporarily blinded him.      They then
knocked him down and snatching his
I wallet, dashed downstairs and cs-
.caned.
GOOD  NATURED AGAIN
Good Humor Returns With Change to
Proper Food
"For many years I was a constant
sufferer from indigestion and nervousness, amounting almost to prostration," writes a Western man.
"My blood was impoverished, the
vision was blurred and weak, with
moving spots before my eyes. This
was a steady dally condition. 1
tirew ill-tempered, and eventually got
so nervous I could not keep my books
posted, nor handle accounts satisfactorily, 1 can't describe my sufferings,
"Nothing I ate agreed with me. till
one day I happened to notice Grape-
Nuts in a grocery store, and bought
a package out of curiosity to know
what It was. . ,
"I liked the food from the very first,
eating it with cream, and now I buy
il by the case and use it daily. \
soon found that Grape-Nuts food was
supplying brain and nerve force as no-
Ihing In the drug line ever had done
or could do.
"It wasn't long before I was restored to health, comfort and happiness.
"Through the use of Grape-Nuts food
my digestion has been restored, my
nerves are steady once more, my eyesight Is'good again, my mental faculties are clear and acute, and I have
become so good-natured that my
friends are truly astonished at. the
change. I feel younger and better
than I have for 20 years. . No amount
of money would induce me to surrender what. 1 have gained through the
u*e of Grape-Nuts food." Name

Caused by Lumbago, a Form of
Muscular Rheumatism.
Lumbago is sudden In Its attack?
and it; so intensely painful that the
sufferer is oflen unable to move, even
to turn In bed or rise from a chair.
The trouble chiefly occurs among
working men. among whom It numbers
thousands of victims. As the attacks
come on quite frequently and arc so
torturing, this disease means much
loss of time and money us well as the
endurance of much suffering. No
"Ictim needs to be told that, lini
ments, plasters and outward treatment
will not cure the disease. This kind
of treatment is merely a waste of tint.'
and money. The trouble is really a
-pedes of muscular rheumatism, and
's due to poor blood, and can only be
cured through the blood. It is for
���his reason that. Dr. Williams' Pink
Pills are so successful In curing this
���.rouble, and those who are afflicted
'ay it should lose no lime in giving
'he Pills a trial. If the treatment is
persisted in tlie disease will be driven from the system and the cure he
made permanent., In substantiation
Mrs. Alfred Derby, Bttyvllle, Ont.,
says: "A few years ago I was attacked by excruciating pains in the back
which the doctor called lumbago. I
was not able to do a bit of work
about the house, and suffered dreadfully every lime 1 moved about. I
took Ihe doctor's medicine all winter,
and used liniments, without getting
any relief. In a thoroughly dlscour-

DOKS the road you use pass over rickety,
dangerous wooden culverts, that arc constantly in need of repairs and often washed

CULVERTS OF CONCRETE
which  not   only cannot he  washed   away, hut
actually grow stronger with age and use.
Every fanner owes it to himself to insist that the
money he pays for road-tuxca bf spent to the best advantage. As a ratepayer, He is entitled to the best roads that
can be made with that monev. When culverts are washed
out, and the road rendered impassable, he not only suffers
inconvenience but may also be caused financial loss by
inability to j;et necessary supplies hi time for spring planting. And at best, with wooden culverts, part of the money
that should be used to make better roads must be spent
every year fur repairs.

Notes and Comments
The necessity of a hospital at
Courtenay was plainly demonstrated on Tuesday morning, when a
poor logger was left lying on the
roadside for over half an hour. To
be stared at by the passing throng.
To cheapen the cost of liring St.
Louis has parsed an ordinance to
sell eggs, vegetables and fruit by
the pound instead of measure. The
committee on equalization considered it unfair that an egg of a Shanghai should fetch no more than the
product of a bantam.
Winnipeg, April a i.���That Canada, and particularly Western
Canada, is getting a great number
of first-rate immigrants, and that
the prospects are that the year 1913
will surpass all previous records,
was the opinion expressed by Hon.
Dr, W. J. Roche, minister of the
interior, in an interview last night.
"Will Courtenay ever be an large
and iufluencial place as Cumberland?"���Cumberland News. Yes.
dear, Courtenay is already quite as
large as Cumberland ever will be,
and as for influence, well, note the
large number of bright iufluencial
Cumberlandites who are flocking
here to do business. Some influence!   Eh?
An Alberta farmer has carried
off the world's prize for the best
oats grown last summer. The interesting thing about it is the farmer was a few years ago, an English immigrant who knew nothing
whatever 'about farming. This is
the sort of immigrants Canada I
wants; the motherland cannot send '
us tbo many of these.��� Montreal

Curiositv as to the extent of the
Morgan estate is not likely to be
satisfied for some time. The expert valuator* of the Col. Astor
estate have just completed their
work, showing the total appraised
value to be, less deductions claimed
by executors and allowed by law,

The Los Angeles city council
were obessed with the id;a that the
publication of a municipal newspaper would prove not only a money
saver, but a source of civic revenue I
as well. After dropping $36,000)
on the venture in a little over six
months, they have retired from the
publishing business. Sir John
MacDonald'i advice to a gentleman
in the leather business, who applied
to him for a position, "let the shoemaker stick to his last," remains
an economic axiom.
Canada's rejection of reciprocity
simplified the work of the low tariff
party in the United States. Every
American movement towards low
tariff was met by the cry that a reduction in the United States tariff
was equivalent to the presentation
of a gold mine to Canada. When
the people of this country made it
quite clear that Canada did not
attach any high value to gold mines
in the American market the Americans were forever set free from the
haunting thought that they could
not reduce their own tariff without
making Canada rich for life. Canada's indifference to the American
market is the mother of the Wilson
tariff.���Toronto Telegram.
Apropos of our remarks last
week anent the extortionate freight
rates demanded by the boats plying
between here and Vancouver, we
might state that the Furniture &
Undertaking Co., had a hearse
shipped to them last week, weighing about 1200 pounds. The railway company charged them $95'for
hauling it from Ingersoll to Vancouver, a matter of eight cents per
pound. The Steamship Co., wanted
a further $60 to bring it on to
Comox wharf, a distance of approximately 100 miles,Jafter some beating
about the Union S. S. Co., finally
agreed to bring it to Comox wharf
for $30. Again we ask how much
longer arc the people of this valley
going to stand for such outrages?

Conservative Meeting
At Powell River
Held
Powell River, B. C, April 21.���
The Powell kiver Conservative
Association held a smoker here on
Saturday night at which a large
audience turned out, when Mr. L.
R. Maitland, of Vancouver, B. C.,
spoke on general Dominion aud
provincial political natters.
The meeting was presided over
by Mr. A. McKinney, who in opening, explained the splendid work
done by the club in reference to
the new voters' list, which is larger
than the one just cancelled.
Mr. Maitland first reviewed briefly the work of the McBride administration and went carefully into the
work accomplished by the various
ministers. He dwelt particularly
ou the effective work accomplished
by the Hon. Mr. Bowser, who, he
said, was at all times a fearless zpi
honest adminstrator. He also gave
considerable time to the lands department, showing that Hon. Mr.
Ross was making every effort to
assist the settler, and pointed out
the new legislation in reference to
pre-emptions.
After showing the many things
Mr. H. S. Clements had done for
Comox-Atlin, Mr. Maitland went
fully into the Naval Bill, explaining
Hon. Mr. Borden's policy and contrasting it with the efforts of the
Liberal party, whose policy he
claimed was at the present time
utterly impracticable.

but to hear what the citizens had to
say. They had the interest of the
Agriculturalists nt heart, and want-
ed i" Imd out the difficulties, and
endeavour to remedy any found.
He said thnt 14 to 16 million dollars
worth * f food products were imported into the province, which the
farmers here should produce. This
(lis riot was the best on the Island,
land advocated co-operation, as it
would do more good than anything
else. The creamery could easily
extend their business by going into I
the poultry rattening, fee I and egg
business, They could borrow 8a
per cent of their paid up capital
from the government. Also said
that the Cowichan Creamery had
gone Into tbe above sideline and
bad    ade very bandsoni; profits.
Mr.   Shannon,   greatly   appreciated the kindness of the people,
I paid   a  neat   compliment  to   Mr.
1 Duncan, and said he was much iin-
1 pressed  with  the vaslness of the
Comox  Valley, admired the mng
nlflcent wide slope fr���iii the mountain to the  sea, and s.iid   that the
testing of  herds,  and   constantly
improving thein would do much for
the welfare of the community,
Rev. Menzies told .risc::pc:ie:ice
in farming for the past two or three
I days, and gave a recitation on
"Canada" which was. well received.
"The Comox District" wns replied by Mr. Cimpbell and Mr.
Hurford.
Mr. Campbell said he was glad
to be here and to see this part of
the province. He had just seen
the "flying" machine hauling the
logs out of the bush, had .admired
'the prosperous looking ranches,
large herds and silos. He had
heard that a certain cow tested 15
per cent buttcrfat, somewhere on
the island, bin hadn't seen her yet.
He also predicted a bright future
for Courtenay.
1    Mr,   Hurford said that we   already had a number of good roads,
and that a return trip to   Vancouver aiid Victoria   would be   but a
short day's journey shortly. While
the farmers had no   $1000 per acre
1 land they   were for the most  part
prosperous.    He  also touched  on |
the creamery business,   nientioi.iug
that la t   year 113.032   pounds of
butter had been made, a very large
in:rea e from  the first year.   The
farmers   were* paying   more atten-
tiju to improving their herds. More
i cleared   land   was   needed.     The
high cost of labor was a detriment.
A   farmer who   cleared his  home
out of thy wcods was broker down
in health and strength by the time
it was done.
Mr. Fechner sang "Asleep on
the Deep" very acceptably.
The toast "Courtenay" was re
sponded to by Mr. Lucas and Mr
Colin Campbell,
Mr.   Lucas   was   pleased to
here; had noted  the tone   of optimism    which    characterized  the

Household Hints
Every kitchen should have strips
of carpet placed on the floor.
A very minute amount of kerosene oil 011 a cloth will clear
furniture,
After frying onions pour a little-
vinegar into the frying pan, let it
get hot, and it will remove all smell
from the pan,
If linoleums aud oilcloths are
rubbed after being washed with a
little linseed oil they will lie found
to wear longer aud have a polish
without being slippery.
To dampen a cheesecloth duster
with a little furniture polish is a
dusting wrinkle that few know. It
wipes up dust and does not pimply
move it on, as so many dusters do.
Women Should Not Smoke
It seems that at last a purely
physiological reason has been found
why women should not smoke,
apart from the general prejudice
which exists in this country.
"Smoking," says Dr. Hargrave,
a London physician ''doesnot have
the same effect on women that
it does on men. An imperious
uecejsity felt by most smokers to
satisfy their passion after eating is
physiologically explained by the
excitation of the salivary glands
whose secretions, so useful in dl
gestion, the smoke augments.
Moreover, it has been shown that
it sterilizes the saliva and that this
is really beneficial from the view
point of the possible infection from
the foods themselves.
"But with women it is a serious
conclusion reached from many experiments that few of them need tobacco. While the proportion of
women, on the other hand, was
very small. Even in women who
have been habitual smokers for
years the action of this weed was
found to be less marked, in fact, almost negligible."
So apparently Dr. Hargrave* is
of the opinion that women should
not smoke because they do not
need it.

New Firearms Regulations
The new regulations in regard to
the carrying of firearms are now in
force, making it compulsory ou all
persons, excepting Indians and
Canadian militiamen when on duty,
to obtain licenses before being allowed to carry firearms.
Under the new regulations farmers and prospectors must obtain licenses, but no charge will be made
for them if the farmer wishes to
shoot on his own lands and the
prospector wishes to shoot only
for food while out on actual pros>
pecting work and in the latter case
only hold good during the open
season. Boys under 16 years of
age will be prohibited from obtaining licenses, except by the request
of a parent or guardian, wl' o must
undertake that the boy will only
carry the firearms under his own
supervision or that of some responsible license holder. Residence in
the province for six months is necessary in order to obtain a license.
Au important innvoation in the
new regulations is the absoulte prohibition of automatic guns, or of
any pump or repeating guns with
a magazine capable ofjholding more
than oue cartridge.

of December 24, Bags nnd so on
not sent in advance were taken in
the boot, liimiliiir to every reader ol
Pickens.
The coachmon, i aards musician'*
and the Inn staff were in tin* costume
of 1818-30, and the dress ol this period
was worn by the ladies and gentlemen ot the party who did nut select a
<'hanu'ter from the novelist,

Christmas Eve and changing horses ut
"The Bull," Hartford, the Diekensiam
reached "Tbe Iiuil" at Rochester at
7.30 p.m., anil an hour later the festivities commenced with a costume dinner in the great hall. Tin* evening
terminated with Sir Roger de Cover-
ley, and at midnight a steaming bowi
of fragrant punch was emptied.
Next morning, significantly enough,
the party were liberally allowed two
hours to tackle the llrst meal of
Christmas Day. and then they attended service in the cathedral. Clirst-
mas dinner, eaten in costume,' observed all the old English customs, with
the ceremony ol the boar's head and
snap-dragon.
The poor children of Rochester were
afterwards entertained to n Christmas
tree, and the evening closed with old-
time gai -s and merriment. The
scene that night in the famous inn
was one thnt would delight the heart
of a Dickens and would need his pen
fitly to describe.
Again two hours for breakfast next
day, in preparation for what the pro-
pram calls "The fights of Rochester
and Dickens I.n.'.' "Fights" is probably the nearest approach the modern
compositor can malic to the word
"sights," spelt with the old-fashioned
"e." At night the party held i
Dickens' costume ball, and the stay in
the novelist's country closed next
morning with late breakfast.
By guaranteeing a minimum party
of 40 it was found possi'. le to issue,
tickets for the three days for five
guineas each, everything included, as
the program naively says, except
drinks.

CHANCE FORECASTS.
Writers of Old Wbo Dimly Pointed to
Modern   Invention*.
Chance phrases In the literary works
it other'days describe wllh uncanny
���xnotnesa Invention*, of far later times
l*'or Instance, we lind in the "I'roln-
sions" of Strada the ttoiaao, which
were published in the year 1017, what
might be held to embody a crude Ue
dcriptlon of wireless telegraphy.
Slrudii represents two friends as carrying ou a correspondence by means or
a "certain loadstone which has such
virtue In It that. If It touches two needles when one of the oeeilles begins to
move, the other, although at ever so
great a distance, moves at the sain*
time und lu the same manner."
In 1(174 Robert Booko pjbllshed a
work wherein he observed that as
glasses Improve the vlslou so ways
might be found to improve our other
senses, "It Is not Impossible." says he,
"to bear a whisper a distance ot a furlong, mid perhaps the nature of the
thing would not make It impossible although thnt furlong should be ten times
multiplied." Tbis seems to be a fair
forecast of the telephone.
In "(lulllver's Travels" Swift causes
his hero to relate in the voyage to Lo-
puta that the astronomer!) there "have
likewise discovered tbe two lesser stars
or satellites which revolve about Mars."
Tbls has been beld to constitute a satire on sham science. Nevertheless
Professor Asapb Hull a few years ago
discovered the two tiny satellites.
It was more than 1.701) years sgo
tbat. Lncian gave an acconot of the
manner wherein the Inhabitants of the
moon drank "air squeezed or compressed Into a goblet" so that It formed a
kind of dew. Tbls clearly suggests
liquid air.
Tbe same writer tn "Vera Hlstorla"
humorously and at some length describes an aerial ship tbe sails of which
were Inflated by a whirlwind, thus Impelling it througb apace to the moon.���

SYSTEMS IN  GAMBLING.
A Queer Society Craze.
Many London society women are
now cultivating odd eyes. Tlie ideal
is to have one eye presenting a dif-
ierent effect from the other. The latest artifice of cosmetics produces that
difference by solution and distillations.
One trick is to dye the odd eye so
that it shall match one's costume.
Drops of prepared matter are poured
into it so that it turns the requisite
color. Meanwhile the normal quality
of the other eye naturally becomes
morp noticeable and the whole expression is given an eccentricity that
baffles the first observation and so
excites a closer analysis Another
trick ot these cosmetics is to dilate
���the pupil of the odd eye or to impart
to it a superficial sparkle. Some w>-
men are even practicing the moderate
squint.
Oculists say that the new cra/.e lor
the odd eye is extremely bad for tho
sight. But it is the fashion und so
cannot be foregone lot mere hygienio
reasons.

To Establish National Workshop*.
A plan to establish ateliers or national workshops in London and sev-
eral provincial cil.es on the lines of
the licole des lieaux Arts in Paris is
jiow being carried out by n special
committee of the Society of Architects. Authority was given to the
schpme, together with a financial
glial an tee, at a council meeting of tli*
society recently, and the con.���ittee,
losing no time, are already considering the suitability ot various sites.
Under the Beaux Arts system which
will now be established in London
end the provinces, classes in design
of about 80 students each will be conducted by French masters holding
Paris diplomas. The first atelier will
be started probably in Solio during
the next few weeks, thus forming the
nucleus of a Latin Quarter in London.

SANDWICK
The neighbourhood of Saudwick
presents a bustling appearance novv-
a-days for the most part due to the
large number of new-comers. If
there were houses available at least
half-a-dozen could be let right
away, provided they were houses
and not shacks. May we be preserved from the "two-shacks-on-
one-lot" speculator, all the same.
The Corner Store has a special

It is high time that a league was
formed in the interests of those
who do not use automobiles, and
incidentally in tlie interests of some
of those who do. Narrow roads
and corners make no difference in
many cases to the person who has
dollars enough to make a first instalment ou an automobile. It has
been suggested that pressure be
brought to bear upon the Chief
Constable to have certain roads
closed to automobiles and also to
have an examination test in driving
before issuing a license. If motor-
drivers break the laws both of the
land and of common decency the
public will have to take the law into their own hands, after all the old
motto of Winchester School is true
"Manners maketh the man."
Accident at Mine 8
The first accident to occur at the
sinking of the shaft at Mine 8, oc-
cured   on  Saturday last.     Seven
men were working on a platform,
about   50 feet  from  the bottom
j when it gave way.   Two of them
! were   near  the  edge  and   saved
1 themselves, the others went to the
bottom.   Two were killed outright
and three   badly injured, one  of
whom has since died.   A coroners'
inqueat will be held.
It is noted that the Bible is now
