Ancient   Egyptians   Were   Ahead
The announcement Is made by u

Incubators which he declaros were
used in ISfjpl ii\ i- thousand years

but It i�� laid bare at last. They bad
no oil Btoves or gas or electrto heated lucubatovs, imi they hod ovens
wiiiiii worked much better, even
timm.li they roqulred moro constant
tending. lOncU oven was calculated
to bold seven thousand eggs, and the
fuel by which It was heated consisted
of chopped Btraw and dung, but for-
tho :u. l ten days ot tbe hatching, Uio
energy was supplied altogether by
the   blckenB themselves,

j tho end ot tbo period, and now wo
may loam from tbe old Egyptians bow

do then). The uue ol' tho straw and
otber light fuel shows that tbe Egyptians were most careful to avoid too
Intenso beat at any time, We thought
that wo were tho lir. _ to use Incubators, but we are fitly centuries behind the times.

Judge a Man by His Farm
A farm is the landscape of the own
er's heart and the reflex of his mind
If a man can be judged by bis clothes,
he can more truly be read b; liis farm,
which is an extension of bis vestment.
Beauty and breed can never be appreciated as a part of environment until
they are inner realities. What a man
is,, inevitably reveals itself in bis
words and works. A farm adorned
with improvements, crops, animals and
trees, making a plcturo of pence and
plenty, represents the unfolding and
expression of it's owner Ideals. It Is
the wondrous canvas on which he
.leaves the subtle strokes ot genius or
mediocrity. It is to the interpreting
onlooker a kind of autobiography.
Wherefore a farm Is exceedingly Interesting as an Index of the character
<: its owner.

$30,000   Milk   Condensory
Ready to Start Operations
May the 1st
Another industry is about to
commence in Courtenay, which
will bo added to the "Mnde in Comox" list, viz. The Courtenay
Milk Condensory, which will open
its doors for business, nbout the 1st
of   Mny.    As   everybody    knows,
condensed or canned milk hns a
large demand in the new districts
and among the logging and construction camps.
20,000 lbs. Per Day Capacity
The plant being established here,
is fully as large as any on tlie Canadian coast, aud has a capacity of
20,000 pounds of milk per clay,
With the establishment of so
large a condensory in this district,
and the guarantee of the Company
to pay at least 4()c in summer and
45c per pound, butter fat, during
the winter, months, the Ranchers
of the Valley and adjoining Islands,
have a bright future, in that a
permanent market is assured for
as much milk as they can produce.
When properly prepared the milk
will keep from four to five years.
The idea of starting here originated with the Company last October, and after interviewing the
fanners of the Valley, found there
would be au ample supply, the
milk from nearly five hundred cows
being promised, if the company
built a suitable condensory.
They immediately got busy and
purchased an acre and a half of
ground from Jos, McPhee along
the river bank at the end of Mill
Street, where they have erected a
fine building, 40 by 180 feet, fully
equipped with the most modern
machinery for condensing -milk
made, including a 130 light dynamo.
The milk from 500 cows being
delivered daily at the factoty will
necessitate the employment of
about fifteen hands, all of them
"white,"and most of them local.
The engine room is a substantial
brick structure with cement floor,
of modern construction and design.
The boiler is 135 horse power, and
carries 135 lbs, of steam, and is
fully equipped with boiler feed
water heater, etc A 20 h. p.
engine drives the machinery and
dynamo, the pumps being driven
by steam. One pump throws 200
gallons of water per minute, the
other 15���- ga_oi.s per minute, the
large "moose" vaccum pump 1000
gallons per minute.
The milk when taken from the
wagons, is first run into the
weitrhing scales, then strained,
then pumped up stairs into two
large storage tanks of 3 tons capacity each, front there it is conveyed
to two large copper boiling kettles,
where it comes to a boil and from
there goes into a copper vaccum
pan at a temperature of 212F.,
when it is reduced to half the
quantity, the water passing
through the condensor and the
milk and solids staying in the pan.
The pan weighs three tons and is
of solid copper, the condensor
weighs three-fourths of a tc i nnd
is also of copper. After the \__er
is taken out of the milk it is then let
into another tank, from which it is
taken over copper coolers into another storage tank, until it is cooled
to about fifty degrees, when it goes
from there into a solid brass filler,
which fills twenty-four cans at one
opeia'.ion. After being filled Jthe
cans go into the crimping machine
which puts the covers on at the
rate of 48 per minute.
After the cans are capped they
are placed in a large iron retort
where it is again cooked for about
three quarters of an hour at a tem-
preature of 240 degrees F.
After being taken out of the
retort it. is then taken into the stock
room where it stands for three
weeks before being labeled, at the
end of that time each can is tested
separately and any defective cans
are thrown out, then it is labeled
by girls and put into cases ready for
'Hie factory was planned erected
aud superintendancy of Mr. D-
J. Bubar, the manager, aud cost in
the neighbourhood of $30,000,
It is thoroughly lighted and ventilated, modem, compact and perfectly sanitary. The arrangements
for handling the product are very
convenient and labour saving.
Tlie grounds are tastefully laid_out
with gravelled driveways and
lawns, in which 30 poplar trees
have been planted, a neat picket
fence along the front, while the
back is enclosed by   a  wire  fence.
While the price of milk may
fluctuate, the Company guarantees
to pay at least 40c during the
summer months, and 45c per lb.
butter fat during the winter months
They also furnish the cans free,
and take the milk from the gate,
and pay for the milk at the end of
each rhonth.
As soon as a can of milk is
dumped into the scales a sample of
it is taken and tested by the Bab-
cock method.
Any samples of milk brought to
the factory by the patrons will be
tested free of charge any time.
The company is composed of
such well known business men as
Robt. Kelly, R. W. Cromie, W. F.

From my childhood I wished to visit
Home. As boys study with u view to

business, I .studied with U view to visiting tho Etornnl City. 1 learned to
spent Italian and I.ntiu. I read tlio
books of Itomnn writers that bnvo
beon preserved to us for twenty centuries In tbo language In which tbey
�� ere written.
What gave direction to my desires
was reading of the busty burial of
i-orlis of art to hide tbem from tho
100.000 Fluxes."

pusses without some statue being dug
from beneath the surface ln or about
Home, 1 was myself seined with u de
eire to find some of the treasures thnt
ndorned ltome In the days of her gran,
dour My object In life mny not buve
been practical, but It Is not only practical objects that ure absorbing.
I was uot permitted to visit tbe land
of my dreams until I was twenty-seven
years old. Then 1 found myself ln pos
session of property which gave nie un
Income of a few thousand; n year.
Within a month nfter the receipt of
my patrimony I was lu ltome.
1 bad been more than a year In Rome
and had studied the references to a
number of villus thnt llnd been the residences of ancient Itomnus with a view
to selecting oue to search for Finally
I stumbled on a record of a very rich
man, Manilas (Julutus 1'iso, wbo had
mado his money as an auctioneer
Mention was made of n mania coining upon hiiaafter be acquired wealth
for collecting beautiful works of art.
The author I read stated thnt his villa
contained more valuable statues than
any other of his time. Among others
vas mentioned a statue of Diana that
hnd cost Its owner a fabulous sum
The locution of the villa was given us
among the hills lying to the south of
Hume across the Cainpagnil. A small
Btronm flowed past It; a high bill was
dirctly behind It. There were other
references to the contour of the surrounding country calculated to help
���no searching for the site These I
���tudlod and. not content with one reference, hunted till 1 found another description of the vllln ns It had been before its destruction during one of the
earlier Invasions of the (ioths.
When I bad got nil the information
possible on tbe subject I packed digging Implements In my trtink-l did
not dare to let It be known that I was
going to muke eicnvntlons-and went
by tho electric railway to _ rascatl.
Which I made my headquarters I set
out from there the next morning with
my Implements rolled In a steamer rug
bound by a shawl sirup.
I Bpent a week hunting for a location
that fitted tbe description I hnd gained
from tho books 1 had read Then 1
���pent another week doing some surface
excavating. I was digging, the third

to each hip. Hut before I could use
either of them I would be killed The
man covering ine was so respectable

that he was n bundlt. Hut Ile would

"I presume," bo said In excellent
Italian, "thai you are doing nrohaco

cnvatlona are in the hands of lhe government.';" _   )
"I nm," I replied, "but I am hoping
lo make a discovery that will surprlsu
tbe government ami thin gain Immunity from having broken Hie law."
"1 sympallilze with you. slgnor, but
ns n good clti/.en It Is my duty to Inform upon yon."
"What sum would Induce you to refrain?"
"Vou nre an American. I fancy, from
your looks, your dress and the accent
with which you speak Itallau, Americans arc all very rich."
"1 have but lO.OIK) francs a year."
���That Implies n capital of 200,000
francs. Surely yon eau divide with
one who bas been unfortunate."
"You mean. 1 suppose, (lint I am Iu
your power, and you demand a ransom
of lOO.OOO francs?"
"Vou bnvo stated the case correctly."
I stood thinking for a few minutes
what I could do. 1 bad no funds In
Italy. Tbo Interest on my money Invested In America was sent me quarterly. I bad spent nearly all of my
funds of the present quarter, nud It
would be two mouths before 1 received
another remittance. 1 explained this
to the bandit, but It did not appear to
make much Impression upon him.
"I have never seen an Italian bandit," I said, "but you don't fulfill my
Idea of ono. Vou look Mice a gentleman."
I thought I could see blm wince.
"You nre a gentleman," 1 continued.
"who has met with misfortune."
"You are right, slgnor."
"May 1 nsk the cause of your being
what you are?"
"Games of hazard. I was Intending
to follow n line something like that
you nre enguged In, but 1 not only lost
my patrimony; 1 lost money for others.
I became nn outcast."
There wns a tinge of sadness in his
tone as he spoko this which induced
mc to proceed:
"Flow would you like (o return for a
brief season (o your original or your
Intended occupation? 1 believe that I
am on the track of a burled villa that
formerly contained valuable works of
art I would be happy to havo you

digging In n depression nnd bad gone
down nbout four feet from the surface.
Fortunately the moon rose before tho
sun set, and, anxious to go ns far as
possible with our work before attracting attention, we began to throw op
dirt In earnest. It was soon evident
from the marble pavement we uncovered that we bad struck something fine
and had not gone far before we came
to what proved to be the Impluvluni

antique Itoman bouses. Hut at the
time we exhumed only a small portion

There Is nothing more to tell except

Walnuts as Food.
A London medical journal recently
published some Interesting facts concerning walnuts as food. According
to this authority, "thirty large walnut
kernels contain as much food value at
two and three-quarter pounds of lean
beef." With beef worth approximately _0 cents a pound, this means that
each walnut ls worth about _ cents as
. food product as compared with beef.
That these facts will greatly encourage tho production and consumption
of walnuts is hardly to bo expected.

tbe rich, tho general consumer can

A British Experiment
Yesterday we spoke t f the possibility of successfully combatting
the drink habit by the establishment of places where men can get
the comfort and pleasure afforded
by saloons without the evils tbat
accompany them in ihe latter. By
a somewhat interesting coincidence
tbe following cable wns received
yesterday from London:���
"The fact that tbe People's Refreshment Association, in the for-
tu. t'on of which Earl Grey took a
prominent part, now owus over
120 public houses and made a profit
of .5,000 last year, after paying
the full dividend of 5 per cent allowed by its articles of association,
is attracting attention. The object of the organization is the provision of public houses where other
than alcoholic refeshnients may be
obtained if required ������������-.ercomfortable circumstances.'

At ihe office l round tills note from
Miss Letltla:
Mr. John Knox:
Dear Sir���Kindly oblige me by coming
to seo me us soon as you yet this.
Some things have happened. Not that
1 llilnk they are worth a row n[ pins,
but Jlc.isibiih is an old fool, and sbo
says slm did not put the note In tlio
Utile bottle. Youi- very respectfully,
1 had an appointment with Burton

we could get him on some pretext to

two cases on tho trial list. 1 got
Humphreys across tbo hull lo take
tbem over, and evading Hawes1 resentful blink 1 went on my way to
Bellwood, It was nine days since
Aliss Jane bud disappeared. On my
way out in lhe train I jotted down tho
things that had happened In that time.
Allan Fleming bad died und been burled; the Borough bank bad failed;
some one had gol. into tho Fleming
bouse and gone through tbo papers
there; Clarkson liad killed himself;
we bad found that Wardrop had sold
tho pearls; tie leather bag bud been
returned; Fleming's second wife bad
appeared, and some one bad broken
inlo my own house and Intentionally
!>r not, hail almost.sent Margery Fleming over tho borderland.
It seemed to mo everything pointed
In one direction to a malignity against
Fleming that extended itself to lhe
daughter. 1 thought of what tbe woman who claimed to bo the dead man's
Becond wife bad said the day before,
If the staircase she bad spoken of
opened into lhe room where Fleming
was shot, and If Schwartz was In town
nt tho time, then, in view of her story
that lie had already tried once to kill
blm, the llklihood was that Schwartz
was at least implicated.
If Wardrop knew that why had lie
not. denounced him?
Granting that Schwartz had killed
Fleming���then who was the woman
wiih Wardrop the night be was robbed? Why did be tuke lhe pearls nnd
sell tbem'.' How did tbe number
eleven twenty-two come into Aunt
Jane's possession? llow did the
leather bag get to Boston? Who had
chloroformed Margery? Who had
been using tho Fleming hotiso while
It was closed? Most important, of all
now���where was Aunt Jane?

She put her hands ou (.lie arms of her
chair and, leaning forward, shot the
words at mo viciously.
I said 1 bad lost some of the pearls.
Well, 1  haven't.
She didn't expect me lo believe her
any moro than she believed it herself.
Very well, 1 said.   I am    glad    to
know it was a mistake.   Now, the next.
thing is to llnd Miss Jane.
We havo found her, she said tartly.
That's what I sent for you about.

subject to all classes of wood users,
the Forestry Branch of the Department of the Interior is about to undertake an exhaustive series of tests at
McGIll University. Beginning with
a few of the more important of the
commercial tpecies, every kind of
wood in tlie country will be tested for
its strength in various ways, and for
different conditions of growth and
moisture content. At present the only
information we have on tills subject
is based upon tests of wood grown
in the United States; many of which
were grown under entirely different

you are nervous and not sure of yourself, that you sleep badly, aud wake

work, your appetite is fickle, your

Pills. Theso Pills have cured thousands of cases of nervous disorders,
iiicludiug nervous prostration, neuralgia, St. Vitus danco and partial para-
lvsis. Here is an example. Mr.
jas. A. McDonald, Springhill, N.S.,
says: "In tho summer of 1912, as the
result, 1 think, of hard work, 1 was
completely, run down and found it necessary to quit work. 1 slept poorly,
and what sleep I did get did not seem
lo rest me, as I was constantly tired.
My appetite was poor and lickle, and
my nerves unstrung. I had treatment
from a dock: for some time, but it
did not seem to help me, and having
heard n great deal about Dr. Williams'
Pink Pills I decided to try them. In
the course of a few weeks after beginning the Pills I picked up wonderfully,'and was able to return to work
feeling like a new man. I have not
had a day's sickness since, and naturally nm now a firm believer in Dr.
Williams' Pink Plllii."
Dr. Williams' Pink Pills will work
the same beneficial results in any
other tired, worn-out worker if given
a fair trial. If you cannot obtain tlie

Apples a Luxury In the States

can read "three apples for a dime,"
and In many places the rosy fruit is
marked with a nickel apiece, says the
I'tica Globe. How changed this is
from those old days when one could
buy a peck of apples for 10 cents or
a barrel for $1.25. Not many years
ago an orange was worth four or live
apples, but now it is cheaper an:) it
is not worth one. There was onee a
time when an ordinary family w_lld
have several barrels of apples in the
cellar, or in a bin in tlio garret, for
winter use. But ttiose days are gone
and even a good apple pie lir.3 reached

Increasing competition in Victoria is
causing many oldtinie concerns to look
to themselves ami get out of the "boom-
time" rut. The latest form of threatened competition is a Co-Operation Association, designed to still further reduce
the cost of living, and at the same time
to encourage local sources of supply. It
is a sign of the times which every storekeeper in the city, as well as the middle
unin,.will do well to consider.

My dear D. & Ii. it is with much sorrow that I humble myself before
you, if I have caused you much pain I pray thee forgive life, it was my
narrow lnindedness that caused ine to misunderstand your great writing
when you wrote, Eord owners don.t you wisli many things, 1 understood you to mean the Eord was only half finished when it left the
factory, and was the only car that ever did need extras, when I saw the
above my temperature went up to boiling heat, but as the result of the
last few days cool weather I am down tn normal again.
But in your writings of April 9th you really did say some nasty things
you said that 1 was'ii measly rat catcher, now right here on my bended
knees I confess that 1 have caught a few beaver and a few marten, and
other wild beasts, and when a torn rat comes meandering around my
place I sure do get him, but if you will forgive it will uot occur again.
Now you called our Sammy a soil drill- bottler, if you had called him
a booze fighter he never would have got over it; we don't just catch who
you mean by paper hanger and shoe shine ex.ert, but if it is J. _., well
lie is fat and good natured and a first class electrician, and in the future
will have charge of the electric end of the l'ord garage, you say yonr
opinion is worth lots more than this combination, well 1 think it is good
.'ind if you will put it in a bottle with a little mustard and a pinch of salt,
cork it up tight, it will keep. You also say Eord Agents are not allowed
to sell Ford Extras, allow ine to explain my dear Gaston,
The Ford Motor Co., does not say what we shall or shall not buy or
from whom you shall buy, we can sell Eord extras as cheap as anybody,
we can make 30 to 300 per cent, on Eord extras, where we only make
about IS per cent, on Eord parts, but the Eord Motor Co., requests us
not to load up our customers with unnecessary expense, and we have to
notify any Eord .owner wh > has had electric lights attached to the Ford
magneto, or if shock absorbers have been put on his car, his guarantee
on these parts has been cancelled, The Eord car has 110 more need
for shock absorbers than a pig lias an eye glass, they ride easier without them. The new 1914 Eord is fitted witli the new Ford coils which
have tungsten points, and will not fuse and are set at the (act iry, need
no adjustment, and i> certainly a great improvement over platinum
points,    Nuff said, we call quits.
