The Victorious Captain
The captain was an eccentric, of the
first water, and numbered anions his
peculiarities the fact that he never
gave the desired answer to a direct
question. An amusing instance of
this evasli'o habit is related.
One morning four of his friends who
were aware of this trait ln his character observed the captain going to
market, and after some bantering entered into a bet as to the practicability of learning from him the price he
paid for his purchase. They accordingly settled the preliminaries, and,
stationing themselves at different
points along the street which he had
to pass ou liis way home, awaited his
Very soon the bluff old salt made
his appearance with several pigeons
dangling from his hand.
As he approached, the first questioner accosted him with; Good morning,
captain! What did you givs for your
Money! responded the captain,
Lluntly as he continued his journey.
The second gentleman a little farther
on addressed him. How go pigeon.,
tills morning, captain? he asked.
They den't go at all���I carry 'em!
was the unsatisfactory reply.
Shortly after that the captain met
the third questioner, who having asked the time of day, casually inquired:
How much are pigeons a dozen, captain?
I don't know. I only bought a
half-a-dozen, said the old gentleman,
still plodding on his way.
Finally, tho fourth and last of the
conspirators attacked the weary old
mariner by observing in the blandest tones: A fine lot ot pigeons you
have there, captain. What did you
get them fer?
To eat! was the emphatic rejoinder.
The captain's eccentricity was
henceforth left unchallenged.
Useful In Camp.���Explorers, surveyors, prospectors and hunters will find
Dr. Thomas' Eolectrlc Oil very useful
in camp. When the feet and iegs are
wet and cold it ls well to rub them
freely with the Oil and tho result will
be the prevention of pains in the muscles, and sl.ould a cut, or contusion, or
sprain bo sustained, nothing could be
better as a dressing or lotion.
He Needed It
A young dandy entered an optician's
shop recently and asked to be shown
some eyeglasses. He was given a
pair to try on, but finding them unsuitable, remarked:
What will you do sinco these don't
suit me?
Well, I'll give you a stronger pair.
Well���er���er���if they don't suit either?
Then I'll give you a stronger pair
And if Iliey fall, said the dandy,

No Flies on Dostor
Boston, it Is claimed, lias been
freed from the fly nuisance by the
simple plan of requiring the removal
of manure from stables eve: day and
the covering closely of all garbage
cans. The scheme of destroying
the fly's breeding-places Is surely better and more effective than swatting
the fly after he has become large
enough to require twattlng.

Marvelous Escapes

t isltiug a poulterer, when a fire broke
out and cut off all retreat.
How did you escape'.' asked the second expert.
Oh, I simply plucked a goose and so
got 'down.'
Well, said number two, whose professional pride was hurt, I was once
lu a similar position. Tlie escapes;
were loo short, uud hundreds of people watched from the street, expect l.g
every moment that the flames would

Professor Swoetier, nnturallil for a

He was awkward on his legs. He

On a certain day It came lo tlie ears
of Professor Swoclzor Hint a portion of

found on a farm In Connecticut. He
arrived ou the spot next duy and verified Hid llnd. Ou un occasion thousands of years before nn old bull whnlo

sister lived  with  Iter, nud the farm
word was doue by a hired man with
the good old fashioned name of Hiram
Stebbins.    Hiram wns thirty-five and
drank nothing stronger than elder, but
he thought deeply.   One of them wns
that If he married the widow be would

As soon as the professor bad inspected the bone and become enthusiastic
he was a changed man. lie became a
fluent talker. He became fatherly toward tlio widow. He called ber "my
child" and often took ber hand and

He wus mad wben one of tbe cows

Ihe professor took a ramble In senrcb

tbo kitchen and began:
"Wldder Webb, bow does It feel to
bare a baboon holding your hand?"
"Hiram, what do you meant" was
"I mean Hint 1 bave seen you and
that Utile runt of a man squeezing
hands a dozen times, and neither ot
jou seems to care who stands by. Fell
In love mighty quick, didn't you?"
"Look bere, Mr. Stebbins, yon tare

know who the professor Is. He's a
great num. Uo has taught tne more
about whales In lhe Inst three days
than I know In all my life before. He
nlso knows nil nbout birds and bugs
and bees. It's twice as Interesting to

"Hns a feller got to squeeze your

asked lllrain.
"He hasn't quoezed It. That's simply Ills wary. He ls n fatherly mnn.
When he gets to talking he don't know
whether ho bas got hold of my band

"Well, the cacbelot feeds upon (Isliea

probably thought he fed upon turnips.
The whale ls gregnrtous. Five hundred or more have been seen In a sin-
|le herd.   Terrible conflicts often tnke
place among the whales, and It Is not
unusual to find the lower Jaws deformed. Tbe left eye Is suld to be smaller
than the light, and tbe whale cannot

"All from tbo profersorl" sneered
Hlrain ns be bowed nud walked out to
fiisO'ii the hencoop for the night.
When the professor wasn't assisting
bis mnn to dig for bones he was hunting bugs nnd bees and butterflies.   Tn
bis great  Joy  be discovered  a  seven
spot bumblebee.   As all of ns know, a
bumblebee Is of dark color with yellow spots on his back.   There are often from Ilve to six spots and only
rarely a seven spotter.   This bee, along
with a dozen others, wns placed lu ���
pasteboard  box, nnd  when Iho house
was reached the boi was deposited on
a  window sill of tbe veranda.    The
professor had told tho widow ull about
whales,    As soon as he bad a little
spare time he meant to tell ber all
shout bumblebees. Two days had gone
by when the moment came.   The bona
digging labors of the day were met
and supper disposed of when the professor and the widow tool: chairs on
the veranda.   He hud found the shell
of a small turtle In the gravel that day.
and be set out to llrst explain aboul

bis boots and cbewlng the rag in Hid
kitchen and could hear every  word,
Ho also knew all about thnt box ol
bumblebees on tbe Window sill.
According to Professor Swcetzer, tifn
ties had hearts and lungs, hopes nml
aspirations.   He would even go so fa)
as to say that turtles loved and wen
loved lu return.  They did not sing llkt
a bird nor bellow like a frog, but the]
were supposed to have muslcul ears foi

while tbe backs of tbe sitters were to

The dozen bumbles bad been hopplnj

Annual Meeting
The annual meeting of the Courtenay Fair board was held in the
Agricultural Hall on Tuesday evening. There was a large representation of farmers present besides a
goodly number of Courtenay citizens. The reports of the secretary
and treasurer showed the society
to be in good financial shape. The
delegates to New Westminster were
of the opinion that it would be
advisable not to exhibit at that
place in future, owing to the small-
ness of the exhibit possible to procure, and which is practually
obscured by the,large exhibits of
the districts adjacent to that place.

At Valce: Island
A meeting nf the Couser-
aiivo Association of Valdez
Island, was held at Ilariot Bay on
Saturday evening, October 25th, for
the purpose of reorganization,
The meeting was well attended,
anil showed conclusively thai the
Conservative Party in that district
were unanimous aud hail one object
in view, namely, the advancement
of Conservative principles in Comox
The me -ting was called to order
bv Mr. H. A. Hull the former
President, who deliveied a speech
that was nothing if not optimistic
concerning the future of the Party.
The elf ction of officers was as
follows: Houorarv Pres. Hon, II.
S. Clements, M. P.; Honorary Vice
Pres. Hon. M. Mason, M. L. A.;
''res. Sevtnottr Bagot, J. P.; Vice
Pres. R, 1. Walker; See. Treas. A.
Resolutions nere passed dealing
with organization matters, and the
Secretary was Instructed to forward
the sime to the Ii. C. Conservative
Association. On the motion of Mr.
R. C. Berteaux, Conservative Organizer for the district, Mr. Clements and Mr. Manson were accorded a vote of thanks tor the able and
efficient mauuer in which they have
looked after the intrests of their
Constituents. Mr, John B. Williamson Of the B. C. Canservative
Association was also apprised of the
fact that his efforts on behalf of the
district were appreciated to a large
extent and the above mentioned
gentlemen were assured of the continued support and influence of the
Conservatives of Valdez Island.
Delegates were elected to represent
the Association at the Conservative
Convention to be held at Shoal Bay
on Nov. 15th.
The meeting clo��ed with the singing of the National Anthem and
three cheers for Mr. R, Bordeu and
Sir Richard McBride.
A very enjoyable time was spent
by the assembled members when
Mr. Cameron of the Hariot Bay
Hotel invited them to the* upper hall
where a d'aiice was ih progress and
and it is safe to say that if the male
residents do not do tlieir duty as
Conservatives the ladies will use
every means in their power to make
the Island a Conservative fortress.
Having taken over the business lately

Incorporation  and   Petitions
By a Member of tlie Guard of Trade
Our old friend the Waterworks
Company is trying to enliven a
dull season by circulating a petition
against incorporation. Why at
tiiis time, doubtless they know
best. What good it is going to do
them or anyone else, no doubt they
know also. To the ordinary mind
it appears to be just heating the
nir. There is some sense in a
petition praying leave to incorporate. It is a legal entity, a regular
form by which t e government is
approached. As everyone knows
it c.ily has result if signed by names
representing more than 50 per cent.
of the ass2.ssd value of tlie property
included in tile proposed ��� area.
Anyone who does not sign by
reason of opposition, neutrality or
absence counts as against the
petition for the assessed value of
his property. A petition against
incorporation has no sense or value.
It is uot recognized by the government or any other body. It carries
no weight with anyone. The only
possible advantage they may suck
out of it is that they may entrap by
their misrepresentations some peo7
pie into signing their names no v
who may repent their haste when
the question is really brought before
the p?ople. Our advice to tho��e
about to sign is Don't! and to
those opposed to incorporation,
Don't cry out until you are hurt.
We understand there is a lot of
bad blood over the proposed Electric
Light Company. The waterworks
company quite thought they had
the monoply of exploiting lhe
public utilities of Courtenay. And

Practical   Education
Said a professional man the othor
day.      Why  do  nol   our  city  schools
teach the pupils how to write au ordinary business letter? Why do they
not give them an education thai will
be sufficiently practical iiuii they c. u
be relied upon to copy n document
wiih ai leasl a redlmentary Idea of
what It Is about? IKi went on lo
oil how he IiiiiI to have his lypisl mako
several copies of a dooiitueent  before
she could gel a correct one because
she Insisted In willing words that
sounded llko those In Hie original, bul
had no sense al all in the connection
In which she used them, lie says
that thorn is much ground for many
such complaints.
Our personal experience does l.ot
enable us to express any opinion on
this point, but a similar complaint lias
frequently been mado to us. We
hardly know wdiat remedy to suggest
but it is certainly beyond all questions
that a pupil who has graduated from
the high School ought tj know bow
to write a letter, and know that precedent and president are different
words. In view of the complaints referred to, wo suggest to the school
authorities that the matter may be
worth a little inquiry, and that if a
real evil exists, moans should be taken to remedy it.
It Is much more Important that a
clerk i.i an olile: or a counting room
should be able to write a business
letter or add up a column .of figures
correctly than to be able tc tell how
often Henry VIII. was married or how
far it. is to the moon. It is much
more important to be able to copy a
document with some intelligent comprehension of what the language
moans than to be able to analyze a
sentence according to the latest tom-
foal notions aa to the construction of
sentences. We had occasion to look
over a modern grammar tbe other day
and undertake to say tha. Shakespeare, Milton, Addison or Macaulay
could not have scored 3 out of a possible 100 if they were set to answer an
examination paper on it. Possibly a
little more of pract.eal instruction in
English and a little loss theory might
nol be amiss.
A young housewife was showing a
new and inexperienced servant about
the house, explaining th? various duties that would be hers. In an upper
hall they came suddenly to the head
of tlie back stairs, and the lady said:
Nancy, you will go down this way,
always! and with that the mistress
slipped and tumbled, going all the way
down with many lurches and bumps.
Tlie new maid was aghast,
Lor, missus, I'm afraid I won't suit
you at all. That way of goln' downstairs is a bit too dangerous for me.

.So much milk is sen up to London
a. ' the price is so high tIiiit poor people in country n strlcts have simply
io gn without It, was   lhe   startling
j Btatement made by Ladv .Meyer at lhe
' conference of the National Food Reform Associatloi  ihe oilier day.
lb.I It is .an so Burprlslr after all
when we remember whal o mighty
volume of milk the people of the metropolis consume every year about
112,000,000 gallons for which they pay
annually about live million pounds,
There is no city of magnitude in tbo
world that can compete against London wilb  its milk supply.
Aboul fifly years ago the milk lhat
was consumed In London mostly came
from dlstrl is within the metropolitan
area.      But   foot  anil   inoulli   disease
broke out among Iho cows, and II was

milk famine,   it was at ibis time thai

���thought of gelling milk    from    the
I healthy cows in Wills and  Hauls
London's greatest supply of milk
cornea from Wilis, bin largo ipiaiili-
tlos come also from Derbyshire, Staffordshire, Berkshire, Buckinghamshire, Hampshire and Surrey. Milk
lias come lo London oven from Wales,
Ireland and Penzance, and 111 a few
Instances from Scotland. The following figures represent approximately
the number of churns which are
brought by different railways lo London every year (oacli churn contains
about 14 gallons of milk I: Ureal
Western Hallway. 1.200,000 churns;
Great Northern Hallway, 400,000
churns; Midland Hallway, 341,000
churns; London and Brighton Railway
255,000 churns.
All these railways took lo the enterprise from the beginning and what
then proved an Ill-paying item Is now
one of Ihe most flourishing, and keen
competition exists In counties which
are traversed by more than one railway company. Special trains led to
the building of special milk vans and
the movement towards sanitary insulation led to Improvements which
were not dreamt of at an earlier day.
Every line has its refrigerating vans
with special accessories for excluding
dust and all kinds of germs. The latest pattern of milk van belongs to the
London and Southwestern Railway.
They are fitted like modern Pullmans,
with Westinghouse and vacuum brakes
and'oil gas lamps, and the inner ventilation is evet better than that of the
best passenger coach.
The farmer, or his assistant, rises
early ln the morning, not solely out of
consideration for the crowing of the
cock or rising sun; it. is the exigency
of railway traffic which sets the alarm.
The patient klne await in the sheds
the milkmaid, or mai., or boy, or automatic milking machine.
Patent strainers   and   coolers   prepare the  milk  for transport.      The
cooler has taken the place of an old
practice" of    surreptitiously    dusting
boraeic acid into the churns.
In the Biimrr.ei, for an imperial gallon, the farmer receives 7d. and 8d.,
and in winter 9d. and 10d.. delivered
at the London terminus, and the transportation costs him one penny per

An Obliging Horse
! A doctor and a Clergyman were exorcising ihelr horses one morning In a
Country lane, when an argument arose
between them as to which of the animals possessed the sweeter disposition,
I'll wager that If their respective
tempera could be tried, said the doctor,
mine would be far away ihe bolter.
That's all nonsense, retorted tbe
clergyman. M> marc has Ilie best
temper of any hors i In the neighborhood.
Well, here's a stiff hedge, lei us
try their leaping capabilities, suggested ibe doctor.
Right you are, agreed bis friend.
The doctor's hunter quietly refused
the Jump, although put al it again
and again. The clergyman's little
mare also refused, but at. the same
time threw hack ber ears and exhibited considerable Ill-temper. When
repeatedly urged lo jump sbe finally
accomplished a cleve: buck-jumping
feat, which threw ber master straight
over lhe hedge. Strange lo relate,
the reverend gentleman was quite unhurt, and scrambling to bis feet commenced to scrape the mud from his
broadcloth, whilst the doctor laughingly remarked:
Perhaps you nre convinced now that
my animal has a belter disposition
than yours.
Not at all! replied the clergyman.
My mare is such an unselfish little
brute that although unable to take
the fence herself, she bad no desire to
keep me from going over. In fact,
she facilitated lhe mode of my transit
whilst your horse displayed a dog-in-
the-manger temperament, by not going
himself and not allowing you to go
Playing the Game
A pompous director of a large railway company once landed at a small
station and requested the porter to
carry his bag. Tbe statlonmaster was
quick to notice the importance of the
arrival, aud as the porter passed him
struggling with the heavy Gladstone,
managed to whisper: Be careful, Bill!
That's Lord Blank, one 01! the directors.
The porter's chance of a tip vanished with this information, but subsequently upon relinquishing the bag, Le
was astonished to find himself the recipient of a Bhilllng.
Momentarily surprised, he stared at
the coin in his palm, and the director
thinking his behaviour savored of dissatisfaction, remarked: Under the
company's regulations you are not sup.
posed to accept gratuities.
Yes, sir ��� no, sir. stammered the
porter, and then, recovering \.'z self-
control and closing liis left eyelid, he
said: But on.; employe never splits on
No Air for Hin
The bartender grasped the man next
the stove by the shoulder aud shook
him until he was awake,
Here, Zept, be told him, ; ou'd better
go out and got some fresh air, .It'll
do you good.
Zept merely printed ilrnnkonly and
huddled back in liis chair. The bartender tried i. again, with like result.
You won't get out, won't you? he
roared angrily. Seizing the unfortunate Zeph by the collar and the seat of
the trousers, he escorted him forcibly
to the alley. Get out there In the air
and brace up! was the parting advice.
You kin put me out .'. ye like, but���
Zeph straightened up with drunken

The train wns undoubtedly a record-

The passenger who had bee. fidgeting

last and sirolled along the corridor to
Iho front of Ihe aln, where he eame
upon the guard playing marbles with
ilie engine-driver.
Hallow, there! he called. 1 suppose
you don't mind a bil of good advice
if It's given In a  friendly  spirit?
The conductor pocketed two marbles
and said he r" ln'1.
Then why. said the pule passenger,

off Iho  front, and  put   on  the  back.
Tlie conductor slared hard and bus-

Oil the Future Fuel of Navies
There can bo no doi : that the naval future lies With oil aa agalnsl coal.
A given tonnage of oil as against an
equal tonnage of coal will enable tlio
same ship to steam much faster, lo get
up speed quicker and lo travel 4) per
cent, farther; moreover, Hie supply
can lie replenished in a small fraction
of the time, and on lhe high sea lu
nearly any weather Instead of In port.
When you add that per knot steamed lhe cost is about the came, and
lhat the world's visible supply seems
us Infinite for any near future as the
coal supply, the case seen s conclusive. The objection that, coal is a
home product while oil is imported,
is of no relevance from a naval or
strategical point of view, because if
we were prevented from importing oil
we could not Import any ^tlipr necessity of national existence.
Tills and other objections will no
doubt continue to le urged, since the
withdrawal of the British navy's consumption, followed as it mast be by
that of foreign navies, will t. a serious tiling for the steam-coal producers in our midst. Theirs are .powerful interests, but not interests in
whose favor the admiralty could properly forego tlie highest naval efficiency.���London Chronicle.

something for. me to eat.
"He said It was a food called Grape-
Nuts and even r.s its golden color
might suggest it was woith Its weight
in gold. I was sick and tired, trying
one thing after another to no avail,
but consented to try this new food.
"Well! It surpassfO. my doctor's
fondest anticipation and every day
since then I have blessed the good doctor and the inventor of Grape-Nuts.

in a month's time my for.ner Bpclls of

and this condition has continued."

. Many a child has been called awkward, has been punished In school for
not keeping still- or for dropping
tilings, when the child Is not leally at
fault, as the trouble is rer.llj St. Vitus
dance In Its earlier stages. So common is this : ervous disease in childhood thai, in some schools one-fifth
of all the pui.ilB nave been found suffering from it In one form or another.
Before lhe presence of the disease is
betrryed there is usually a disturbance of the general health. The child
shows lUtlessnesa and inattention.
Then It becomes restless, and twitching of the muscles and jerking of the
limbs and body follow. A remedy that
cures Si. Vitus dance aud cures it so
thoroughly that no trace of the disease remains is Ur. Williams' Pink
Pills. ��� hlch make the new blood necessary to feed the starving nerves and
gives them the nourishment they demand.
Mrs. Hiram Barnhart, Scotia Junction, Ont,, says: "About two years ago
my oldest daughter, Isabel, then ten
years of age, was stricken with St.
Vitus dance. She could not keep still
for halt a minute, no matter how
���hard she Wed. Har limbs would
jerk and twitch and every little thing
would start ter crying. I gave her
several bottler, of medicine said to be
good for the nerves, but. instead of
helping her she was steadily growing worse. Her voice would change
so that we could hardly understand
her, and her face became twitched until she did r.ot look like the same
child. I had use! Dr. Williams' Pink
Pills myself when run down, and finally decided to give her these. When
she had taken two boxes I could notice an Imp-ovement, and by the time
she had used Ave boxes she was fully
cured. However, I was determined
to make the cuie permanent if possible, and I gave her two boxes, more,
and I can Iruth.ully say that she has
never had a symptom of the trouble
since, and Is now as bright and active
au any child of her age. 1 heartily
recommend Dr. Williams' Pink Pills
to all mothers as the result of what
they have done for my child and myself."

The Best Treatment
for ItchingScalps, Dandruff and Falling Hair
To allay Itching and irritation or the scalp,
prevent dry, thin end failing hair, remove
crusts, scales and dandruff, and promote ths
growth and beauty of the hair, the following
special treatment is most effective, agreeable
and economical. On retiring, comb the hair
out straight all around, then begin at the side
and make a parting, gently rubbing Cuticura
ointment into the parting with a bit of soft
flannel held over the end of the finger. Anoint
additional partings about half an inch apart
until the whole scalp has been treated, the purpose being to get the Cuticura ointment on ths
scalp skin rather than on the hair. Tha
next morning, shampoo with Cuticura soap
and hot water. Shampoos alono may ba
used as often as agreeable, but once or
twleo a month ij generally sufficient for
this special treatment for women's hair. CutU
rura Soap and Ointment are sold throughout
the world. A liberal sample of each, with
32-pago booklet on the care and treatment
of the skin and scalp, sent post-free. Addroaf
