THE STATION SUBDIVISION, COURTENAY
Some Good Lots At The Station
The streets through the Station Subdivision are very shortly to be made
these will run from the Cumberland road close to the E, _ X. Station
down to the Union Bay road close to tlie mill pond. Good large lots.
50 x 120 feet can be had at the present time at $250 each, Corner tots
53 x 125 for 1300. These prices will be raised shortly. Terms 1-4 cash
the balance in 6, 12 a -d IS months, interest at 7 per cent. As the
Union Bay road is fast becoming a favorite residential section of
Courtenay, having a cheerful outlook and being the Island Highway,
the town is certain to build up rapidly In tbat direction; consequently
there will be a considerable amount of traffic in the streets up to tlie
station and freight shed from that part of tbe town. This is a good
opportunity for those who wish to start up in business later on, for
those who want a good sized residential property close in, There are
no other lots ln Courtenay the size of these that can be bought at anything like the above prices. The plan of the Subdivision can be seen
at any time in my office

brief remark that be would be up that

Rent 1 weni back to have u word with
him alone. lio was standing beside
the train trying to light a cigarette,
but his bands shook almost beyond
control, ami after tho fourth match he
gave It up. My minute for speech was
gone. As the train moved out 1 saw
him walking back ng the platform,
paying no attention to anything
around him, Also bad a Hooting
glimpse �� a i.um loafing on a baggage
truck, his hat over ids eyes.
I bad arranged over iho telephone
that Edith should moot the (rain and
It wns a relief to see tin., sho und
Margery took to each otic* at once.
We drove to the house immediately.
Do you know tbut you havo not
boon to the office for two days? said
Edith to Die. And do you know tbat
Hawes had hysterics in our front hall
last night? You had r, cuse hi court
yesterday, didn't you?
Nothing very much, 1 suld, looking
over her head. Anyhow, I'm tired. I
don't know wdien I'm going back. I
need a vacation.
The biggest case you ever had, .Tacit,
the biggest retainer you ever hud���
1'vo spent that, 1 protested feebly.
A. vacu���Hon, aud you   only   back
from Pln&hui'Bt!
Tbo girl wus in trouble���is in trouble, Edith, 1 burst out. Any one
would have dono the same thing.
Of course it's your own affuir, she
said, not looking at me, an. goodness
knows I'm disiiVorcsted about it. You
ruin the boys, both stomachs and dispositions, and I could uso your room
splendidly as a sewing room	
Edith! You abominable little liar!
She dabbed hor eyes furiously with
her handkerchief and walked with
great dignity to ill. door. Then she
came back and put her bund on my
arm.
Oh, Jack, 1" wo could only have
saved you this! sbe said, and n minute later, wh_i 1 did uot speak, Who
Is the man, dear?
A distunt relative, Harry Wardrop,
I replied, with what I think was very
nearly my natural tone. Don't, worry, Edith: Its all right, I've known
It right along.
l'ooh! Edith returned sagely. So
do I know I've got to di- und be burled somo day. It's being Inevitable
doesn't make it any more cheerful.
She went out, but sbo came hack in a
moment, and stuck her head through
the door.
That's   the only   Inevitable   thing

Outlcura Soap. Its absolute purity and refreshing frjigraneo alono aro enough to
recommend it above ordinary sklu soaps,
but thero aro added lo these qualities delicate,
jet effective emollient properties, derived
from Cuticura Olinmcnt, which render It
most valuable in overcoming a tendency to
distressing eruptions and promoting a normal condition of skin and hair health. A

there Is, sho said.
Tbat Saturday afternoon al 4 o'clock
tho body of Allan Fleming was brought
home, and placed in stale in the music
room of tbo house.
Miss Jauo had boon missing since
Thursday night. I called Hunter by
telephone, und ho had nothing to report.
1 bud a tearful mess.ric from Hawes
late that afternoon, and a little after
llvo I .vent to the * ffieo. 1 found him
offering late editions of the evening
paper to n couple of clients wbo were
edging towaru tbe door. His express-
Ion when ho b.aw mo wns pure relief,
tbe client's relief strongly mixed with
irritation.
I put tho lest face on tbe mutter
lhat I couh, saw my visitors nnd, left
alone, prepared to explain to Hawes
what 1 could hardly explain to myself.
I've been unavoidably detained,
Hawes, 1 said. Miss Jane Maitland
has disappeared from hor home.
So I understood you o'-er the telephone. He had brought my mail and
stood by Impassive.
Also her brother .h-law is dead.
The papers are full of it.
There was no one to do anything,
Hawes. 1 was obliged to stay, 1 apologized. I was ostentatiously examin
ing my letters, and Hawes said no
thing. I looked up at him sideways,
and he looked down at me. Not a
muscle of his face quivered save one
eye, which has a peculiar twitching of
tho lid when lie is excited. It gave
blm a sardonic appearance of winking.
Ho winked at mc then.
Don't wait, Hawce, I said guiltily,
and he took his hat and went out.
Every line of ! is back was accusation.
The sag of li!, shoulders told me 1
had let my biggest case go by default
that day; the forward tilt ot his head
lhat I was probably Insane; the very
grip with which he seized the door
knob, his 'Good night' from around the
door, that he knew there was a woman
at tli'. bottom of it all. As he closed
tho door behind him I put down my
letters am dropped my face in my
hands. Hawes was right.
1 had no. heard die door open.
I forgot to tell you that a gentleman was hert half a dozer, times to-
day to see you. He didn't give any
name.
From around the deor Hawes' nervous eye .vas winking wildly.
You're not sick,  Mr. Knox?
Never folt better.
I thought I heard���
I was singing, I lied, looking him
straight in the eye.
He hacked nervously to the door.
I 1 ave a 1! Ue sherry in my office,
Mr.  K_ox���-Wenty-six  years  In  the
wood.    It you ���
For God's sake, Hawes, there's nothing tho matter with me! I exclaim-
cd.'and he went out. But I heard him
stand a perceptible time outside the
door before he tiptoed away.
Almost Immediately after some one
entered the waiting room, and the next
moment I was facing a man I had
never seen hefore. Hs waj tall, with
thin, colorless beard trlmmi . to a Van
dyke point and pale eyes, blinking te-
liind glasses. He _v". a soft hat
crushed in his hand, and his whole
manner was one of subdued excitement.
Mr. Knox? be asked from tlie doorway.
Yes.   Como in.
1 have been here six times since
noon, he said, dropplnc rather .linn
sitting in a chair. My name is Light-
foot. I .in.���was���Mr. Fleming's cashier.
Yes,    .
I was terribly shocked at the news
of his (loath, be stumbled on, getting
no help from mo. 1 w_S In town, and
If 1 had known in time I could have
kept some of tlio details out of tho
papers. Poor Fleming���to think ho
would ond it that way.
End it?
Shoot himself,     lie    watched    me
closely.
Hut he didn't, I protested. It was
not suicide, Mr. Llgh foot. According
to the police it win murder.
His cold eyes narrowed like a cat's.
Murder Is an ugly word, Mr. Knox.
Dont le:. us be sensational. Mr.
Fleming liad threatens,!, to kill himself more than once���ask young Waid-
rop. He wai sick and despondent;
lie left his home without a word,
which points strongly to emotional insanity. He -OUld havo gone to any
one of half a dozen large clubs here or
at the capital. Instead, he goes to a
little third rate political club, where,
presumably, he does his own cooking
and hides in a dingy room. Is that
sane? Murder! It was suicide, and
that puppy Wurdrop knows It well
enough.
1 have seen die police, he went on.
They agree with me that it was sul-,
cide, and the ,party newspapers Willi
straighten it out tomorrow. The
Times-Post, which is Democratic, of
course, I cannot handle.
Suicide! I said finally. With no
weapon, no powder marks and with a
half finished letter ut his elbow.
Ho brushed my interruption nside.
Mr. Fleming had 1.cen���careless, he
said. I can tell you ln confidence
(hat some of the stale funds liad been
deposited ii. the Borough haul; of Manchester, and tlio Borough bank closed
Its doors at 10 o'cloik today.
1 arrived hero last night, and I
I searched tho city for Mr. Fleming.
Tills morning 1 heard Hie news. 1
have just coino frcm tho house; His
daughter l .erred mo lo you. After
all what 1 want Is u small mat tor.
Some papers���state documents nre
missing and no doubt aro among Mr.
Fleming's private effects. I would
like lo go through bis papers und to
leave tonight for the capital.
I havo hardly the authority, 1 replied doubtfully. Miss Fleming, 1
suppose, would havo no objection. His
private Beoretary, Wardrop, would be
tlio one to superintend such ti search,
Can you Hnd Wardrop���at once.
Something in his eagerness put mo
on my guard.
1 will make an attempt, I snld. Let
mo buve the name of your hotel, and
I will telephone you if it can be arranged for tonight.
Oddly enough, I could not locate
Wardrop. I got tho Maitland house
by telephone to learn that ho had loft
there nbout 3 o'clock and bad not come
back.
1 went lo tho Fleming house for dinner. Edith still was there, and wc
tried to cheer Margery, a sud little lig-
ure In hor black clothes. Afler the
meal 1 called Llghtfoot at bis hotel and
told him that I eonld not fin. Wardrop
and that there wero no papers at the
house and that the office safe would
have lo wait until Wardrop was found
lo open it. He was dls*' jointed nud
furious. From that minute in the
struggle that .vas coming, like Fred,
1 was aguinst the government.

The address of the nrco'do .f, was n
musterlv rilmmnrv of financial and
economic conditions h"-h at li .me and
abroad. Mr. Meredith reviewed the
history of the hank, touch1,! on 'he
trado nnd Industrial expnn.l-'1 of tho
Tlonilnlon, referred to the mone'rarv
situation abroad and throughout ,f ������"
maintained a note nf a .lir. a, vrmie
advocating a pnl'cv nf CMicrvatism
and caution, ho pvnressed tho otilnlnn
that the ennmiorolal cninh-'na of C ,u-
ada. wa.s fundamentally sound.
Tn his discussion of the ire .oral sir-
nation. Mr. Meredith doacrihed tho
year 1913 as a memorable one. 'Tn
flreat Britain the domnnds fnr tne .v
have been Unusually heavy with the
resn't. tbat the rates were hlo-her
than In other years, T-T" nnintnii not
thnt. thpre were mnnv factors of ...tine:
the monetary situation, the most notable he'ng the Balkan War the world

manv. Further. V.be deir.vi . for gold

aeuteiiess of the mon��tarv situation.
Cnunled with this was a considerable
decree of social unrest In (.ent Brit-
aln. Ano'her disturbing factor was
the Mexican situation. *
Tn his review of tho trade of Canada,
Mr. Meredith wns most optimistic,
pointing out that the c%nort trad" Is
now showing a marked advance while
tho imnorts are practically stationary,
Indicating thereby that Canada Is paying ber bills by the exportation of
produce.
The aggregate foreign trade of Panada" for the 7 months ondln<�� rvtnhor
was S636.000.C00 as against S. 80,000 ono
for tho oame period a vear nco, while
in the same period the excess op Imnorts over .xnnrts havo .eon cut dnwii
from S190.00O.OOO to 814n000.000 Mr.
Meredith eslima'ted the value of the
field crons this year, at. present prices,
at $500,000,000. He tben took up each
nrovtnce by Itself, showinc the conditions prevailing In each and summarizing the trade outlook, closimr witli the
followlne ontimistic summary.
"Business as a whole continues
good. Our vast resources have been
scarcely scratch ���. Immigration Is
larco, railway construction, active,
new territory and new sourcpn of
wealth are being steadily opened un
and the confidence of British nnd Foreign capitalists in our country Is unabated. A temporary halt can only

Mr. H. S- Clements, the member
for Comox Atlin litis introduced a
measure in the Federal House
which is not with��Ut interest
to local loggers and lumberman.
The bill is intended to further safe-
*.uaitl shipping in| coastal waters
by makiiiR provision for the salvage
of logs lost from broken booms.
As the law stands there is no obligation on the owners of booms, to
pick up the logs from a broken
boom, and derelict timbers constitute a menace to navigation. This
new bill is designed to remedy this
condition     of    things.
There is an Act before the House
which will require naturalized
British subjects, when applying to
have their names entered on the
Voters' Lists, to file, together with
their application, their Certificate
of Naturalization, or a certified
copy thereof. This Act will take
effect on the 6th of April.
If there are any naturalized
British subjects in this neighborhood who are entitled to have tlieir
names on the Voters' List, it would
be well for them to make application at once, and thus advoid the
trouble of obtaining a certified copy
of their naturalization certificate.

EARLY DAYS
in the Comox Valley
(hy an ohl-timer)
The first school in Comox District was built on the Mission llilllin
1871, It is still standing, and is
now tho residence of Thomas Kirbys
There was no jerry-work in its
construction, and will the best
Courtenay mansion be us weather
proof, without repairs, forty years
from now. The first regular teacher was Mr, S. V. Crawford, father
of tlie late A. II. Crawford, who
came up with his family from Call*
foi nia that Btune year. He bought
from Johu Wilson, the farm now
occupied by Mr R, Hurford, A
year or two later the Grieve aud
Piercy families came out from New
Brunswick, the.Gfieves buying out
j V.. Ci Musters, and ihe Picrcvs
i lhe balance of John Wilson's land.
I About 1879, Mr. Alex Urquhart,
' (wlio had been farm manager for
Wilson, and later owned what is
now the Cowie ranch below Union
Bay) bought iris present property
from a Mr. McFarlaue who had
acquired both it and ihu A. 11.
Crawford ranch alongside, irom
the original owners, and who was
said by his neighbour, Charles
Green, to have so much land that
all his time was spent in looking
at it. Mr. Urquhart had a poor
beginning there, losing nearly all
his milk cows by a collapse of an
old shed under snow, and having'
a newly erected hay bam destroyed
in a storm. lie, however, quickly
overcame these set-backs, and to
him belongs the credit of first
creating a demand for Comox
butter. About 188,5 the late A. B,
Crawford bought the rest of the
McFarlaue land, also Mr. Matthew-
son acquired his present big ranch,
which he had formerly been renting;. It may not be generally
known that Mr. Wm. Beech was
the original owner of the Halliday
farm, and sold it to a Welshman
named Jones, to raise money to go
to England in search of a wife.
Jones sold it to Mr. Halliday in
1882. Mr. W. R. Robb, of Comox,
and Mr. Beech are the only sur-
l viving pioneers of the District.
I Turning to Church affairs, in
11865, old Bishop Hills, with his
usual foresight, secured the Mission
! claim of 100 acres for $100 from
Ui discontented settler; and a small
I log church with so-called Mission
House attached, was erected near
the site of the present parsonage,
j There was no resident clergyman,
however, until the arrival of the
Rev. J. X. Willemar in 187f, but
his pastorate continued without a
break to the summer of 19 3- The
present church was built in 1877,
and the Bay church 15 years later,
,but Mr. Willemar kept patching
jaway at the old Mission-house till
1898- when the Parsonage caine
into existence-
The first Presbyterian Minister,
Rev. B K. McElmon, came in
1877, at which time the church
was built. Mr- McElmon ouly
stayed five years. While not conspicuous as a preacher, he was a
strong and uncompromising advocate of total abstinence, and he got
the cokl shoulder from many who
have since had good reason to regret their attitude He was followed by the Rev. James Christie. M.
A., a man of eminent abilites and
learing, but whose life had unfortunately become a sad vindication
of his predecessor's enmity to that
which, according to Shakespeare,
"enters a man's mouth to steal
away his brains." He did not stay
long, and after him came the Rev.
Alexander Fraser, an excellent
man, who had served as a City
Missionary in London. He superintended the building of the manse,
and as at this time the Cumberland
mines were opening, many a hard
day and rough night were spent by
Mr, Fraser among the cabins and
on the trails between thein and the
Valley. In 1893 he had to leave
for California on account of his
wife's health, and was succeeded
by the Rev Alexander Tait, a good
preacher, but somewhat too much
of a student and recluse.
Mr. Tait returned to Scotland in
1899, and in 1900 came the latest
of the line, the Rev. T. Menzies.

lio was sitting Willi bis back to (he
door and his head on tho tabic.
Was tho revolver in his hand?
Yes.
Vou aro sure? from Hunter. Isn't
it a fact Mr. Wardrop, that you look

It?
Wardrop's face twitched nervously.
Vou havo been misinformed, he replied, but. no ono was impressed by
his tone. It was wavering, uncertain.
From Hunter's face 1 judged it had
bopn a random shot and had landed
unexpectedly well
llow many people knew that Mr.
Fleming had been hiding ut the White
Cat? from the chief.
Very few���besides myself, only a
man who looks utter the clubhouse in
the mornings and Chirkson, tho cashier of the Borough bank, who met
bim there once by appointment.
The chief made no comment.
Now, Mr. ICnox, you heard no shot
while you were in the hall?
There was considerable uolso. I
heard two or three sharp reports like
tlio explosions of an automobile engine. *
Vou are right about tbe automobile,
Hunter said. The mayor sent, his oar
away as I left to follow Mr, Wardrop.
The'sounds you heard were not shots.
It is a strange thing, tlie chief reflected, that a revolver could be tired
iu the upper room of au ordinary
dwelling house, while that house was
tilled with people, and nobody hoar it.
Wero there any powder marks on the
body-
None, Hunter said.
The chief got up stiffly.
Thank you very much, gentlemen,
Hunter. 1 would like io seo you for a
few minutes.
I think Wardrop was dazed at finding himself free. As wo walked to
the corner for a car or cab, whichever materialized llrst, he looked
back.
1 thought so, he said bitterly. A
man wus loitering after us along the
street. Tho polico wero not asleep;
they had closed only one eye.
The last, train had gone. Wo look
a. night electric car to Wynton and
walked three miles to Bellwood. Neither of us was talkative, and 1 Imagine we wero both thinking' of Margery
and ihe news sho would have to hear.
It bail been raining, mid once Wardrop turned around to where wc could
hear _,he detective splashing along.
They camo up together presently, and
tho 'three of us trudged on, talking of
immaterial things.
At the door Wardrop turned to Uie
detective with a faint smile. it is
raining again, lio said. Vou'd better
come in. Vou needn't worry about,
me. I'm not going to run away, and
there's a couch ln the library.
The detective grinned, and in the
light from the hall I recognized Hie

Hut ho didn't lie down on tlio couch,
lie took a chair in Uio hall near the

The Bridal Veil
Tbo Initial veil is evidently of eastern origin, being a relic of Uio
bridal canopy held ver the heads of
tho bride and bridegroom. Among tho
Anglo-Saxons a similar custom existed, but if tho bride was a widow it
was dispensed witli. According to
Sarnm usage, a fine linen cloth was
laid upon the headt. of tho hrido and
bridegroom und was not removed until tho benediction had been said.
Tlie old British custom was to use nature's veil unadorned���that is. the
long hair of the bride, which was so
worn by all brides, royal, noble and
simple. Only then did every one behold the Tresses of maidenhood in
their entirety and for tlie last time, as
after marriage they were neatly dressed on the head. Among some the
tresses were cat and carcfi ly stowed
away on a woman becoming a wife.
It was customary in Russia for village
brides lo shear their lochs on returning from church.
Presumably the Anglo-French tunnel is to be a sort of .'hands under the
sea' affair.

Origin of the Dead Letter Office
What was the reason for our ofllco
getting its name of the dead letter office, as it Is often called? said an olll-
cial'ln the returned letter office. Well,
it was originally started in order to
return to the senders all letters, etc.,
addressed to people who turned out lo
bo dead. The need l'or such an arrangement, became evident from Iho
number of valuable inclosures contained in such missives, and that the old
tradition still lingers in tho department is evident from lhe fact that the
bags containing returned letters are
black in color.
Ves, there are people who Imagine
us to be mysteriously connected witli
death itself, und somo time back we
receive- a peculiar letter from one
of them. Within a week of having a
letter returned to her a certain person
living in the same "house had died, and
consequently the writer, evidently associating her friend's death directly
with us, begged us in future never to
send back letters again, bnl. to burn
ihem instead.

There is not only comfort in eating
food that nourishes brain and body

A Western school teacher tells an interesting experience.     She says:
"About two years age 1 was extremely'miserable from a nervousness that

It 'was that ho 'was found :)iie afternoon by a wandering maniac, who

Leap, Tom, leap,, lie cried, and at
the same time tried to throw him

physical strength enough to resist, but
he had tho wit to say.
Let us first throw this little dog
over.
The man immediately threw down
the dog.
Wetty sport, said tlio lord chancellor. Now, go down and bring him
up; then try again.      ^

There was considerable noise. 1
heard two or three sharp reports like
tho explosions of an automobile engine.

It had been raining, and once Wardrop turned around to where wo could

They came up together presently, and
the three of us trudged on, talking of
Immaterial things.
At the door Wardrop turned to the
detective with a faint smile. It is
raining again, ho said. You'd better
como in. You needn't worry about
me. I'm not going to run away, and
there's a couch In the library.

The Bridal Veil
The bridal veil is evidently of east
ern origin, being a relic of the
bridal canopy held vcr the heads of
the bride aiid bridegroom. Among tho
Anglo-Saxons a similar custom existed, but if the bride was a widow it.
was dispenseel with. According to
Saruni usage, n lino linen cloth was
laid upon the headi. of the brido and
bridegroom and was not removed until the benediction had been said.
The old British custom was to use nature's veil unadorned���that is, the
long hair of tho bride, which was so
worn by all brides, royal, noble and
simple. Only then did every one behold the Tresses of maidenhood in
their entirety and for the last time, as
after marriage they were neatly dressed on tbo head. Among some the
tresses were cut and carefi iy stowed
away on u woman becoming a Wife,
It was customary in Russia for village
brides to shear their locks on returning from church.

miserable by horrible nightmare.

took did nie no apparent good. Finally, a neighbor suggested that Grape-
Nuts might be good 'or mo to eat.
I had never heard of this food, hut
the name sounded good so 1 decided
to try it.
"I began to eat Grape-Nuts and
soon found my reserve energy growing

Origin of the dead Letter Office
Whal. was the reason for our office
getting its name ot the dead letter office, as it is often called? said an olll-
clal in the returned letter office. Well,
it was originally started in order to
return to '.he senders all letters, etc.,
addressed to people who turned out to
he dead. The need for such nn arrangement became evident from the
number of valuable luelosures contained in such missives, and that the old
tradition still lingers in the department is evident: from the fact that the
bags containing returned letters aro
black in color.
Yes, there are people who imagine
us to bo mysteriously connected with
deatli itself, and somo lime back we
received a peculiar letter from one
of them. Within a week ot having a
letter relumed to her a certain person
living in the same "house had died, and
consequently the writer, evidently associating her friend's death directly
with us, begged us in future never to
send back letters again, but, to burn
tbem instead.

Sir:- Being one who worships at
the shrine of Bachus I would welcome some information pertaining
to Local Option.  Your correspondent "Local Option" gives an a>
count of how the reopl? of Ontario
voted ou this question, but omits to
give reasons why tlie people of B.
C. should do likewise, am I to accept the opinion of people some two
thousand nii'es nw.ly without any
discussion as to why I should advocate aud vote for uo public selling
of booze, I would like to kn w if I
will get more booze, wore; booze or \
can I get booze at any price i. e.'
will the breweries and distilleries
still keep going?    "Local Opti' n"
writes  that J the    advantages   of
abolishing   tlie   liquor   traffic   by!
Local Option are so great etc, that.
seldom is a repeal called for, what
advantages has Local Option over|
any    other   method ?      Has   the
"traffic" beeu abolished in Ontario? |
What   was    the   consumption of
booze before and after Local Option
in Ontario ?

Dear Sir:���Seeing the comment
iu the Comox notes, of your ve^y
interesting publication of the 5II1
inst, relative to the gathering of a
number of young people, of the
masculine peruasion, who you so
aptly and elegantly term "young
bloods," awaiting the arrival of
the iteamer, I thought, you might
be able to give me some reason for
the sudden and total disappearance
of the ''young bloods" directly
after the boat arrived
My own theory (which I trust is
wrong,) is that the disnppoiu'ment
and shock received caused them to
lose their balance, fall off the wharf
and at the present "time are emulating J01 ah, with, I hope an eqwd
amount of success.
If such is the case, my prayers
tc the Powers that be, begging
that the fish or fishes, may be impressed with the necessity of
coughins up their cargo somewhere
around the Bay, for we enn't afford
to lose our "young bloods," whose
society is always appreciated by

THE    FORT   GARRY,   WINNIPEG,   MANITOBA
Winnipeg, Man. Dec. 10th��� This
Magnificent hotel was opened for the
reception of guests to-day.
Adjacent to the ruins of that historic monument 'Old Fort Gurry' memorable in Ilie early history of Canada's
now Western metropolis, has been
erected the Grand Trunk Pacific Hotel,
Tho Fort Garry, a magnificent edillce,
one of the world's finest hotels, embodying in its construction the most
advanced scientific and architectural
Ideals. Located In the \ err heart of
Canada's greatest of western cities,
to which all lines of traffic converge,
It is readily accessible to the railroads
and electric ear lire, and the leading theatres, the great stores and a
'stone's throw' fiom tlie new terminal
station of the Grand Trunk Pacific.
The Fort Garry is built of the finest
of Canadian granite and bluff limestone, in the style of the old French
chateau of Normandy and Touralne,
and rears Us stately heights to fourteen stories.
The keynote of The Fort Garry, as
judged from the design and interior arrangements, is to Ik 'homelike comfort.' From basement to roof every
detail ot construction and furnishing
has been worked out in perfect accord
wllh this one idea and would seem to
assure the largest rr ensure of personal
enjoyment and restfulncss to Its
guests���a place where comfort-loving
people might enjoy life to the utmost
and feel thoroughly at home.
The main entr; -ice of the hotel faces
on Winnipeg's most beautiful thoroughfare, 'Broadway.' and opens upon
��n imposing rotunda which suggests
ln its decoration and refinement the
cheer and comfort provided within Its
walls���and from which one may enter
the spacious dining and tea rooms, also the cats and bar.
The central feature of the main floor
Is the circular tea room of Impressive!
and beautiful Adam design, unbroken!
by columns', lofty In height, and finely
lighted by bro;id windows and circular!
domed celling, j
The Mezzanine gallery ls also a novel feature, and is obtained by the Introduction of a storey midway between
the ofiice floor and the parlors. It is;
reached by a broad marble staircase:
from tho main entrance lobby and ls,
finished and decorated ln white audi
delicate shades of cole . It overlooks j
the entrance lobly, dining room, cafe|
and tea room and will be used as gentlemen's writing room. It commands,
a splendid view of those portions of
the house where the most life cccurs,
and yet at the same time affords a
quiet sense of retirement. On this
floor is also located the ladles' parlor j
and drawing room and the executive
office.; of the management.
The hall room, banquet hall and foyer havo been located on the seventh
floor. These rooms are of the richest
of the public rooms, nnd have been so
arranged with separate kitchen service, reception and dressing rooms, bo
as to in no wa: interfere with the privileges of the guests of the hotel. The
banquet room with Its stage aud dancing floor, and on account ofvits location, will be particularly attractlvj for
concerts and meetings.
Immediately in front of the foyer of
the ball room and .anquet hall is a
beautiful loggia tormina a promenade
the entire width of the building and
commanding a view of Uio city of Winnipeg.
Tito building as a whole forms a
fine example of what modern science
can do In the elimination, of fire risk;
every girder, beam and rafter is of
non-expansive steel, every partition of
terra-cotta, every flooi of marble, tile
or cement, and the stairways of iron.
It Is absolutely fireproof, and while
every precaution has been taken to
insure absolute protection to life and
property, an equal measure of. attention has been devoted to its sanitation and the safeguardii_ of health.
Seventy per c. t, of the . -clrooms are
outside rooms, aU are lighted and ventilated with adequate window areas
and each room has Its own private
bath. No treatment ot the interior
which effects gariahness has been
used. The color toneB are in perfect
harmony and the furniture has been
made to order from special designs
such as one would ordinarily find In
private homes of refinement.
On *'..e first floor are the state
apartments, consisting of parlor, bedrooms; and dining room, beautifully decorated and furnished ln the Adam period. There are als i four private dining roouiB on the floor each one of
different size and character, and furnished to suit the needs of the most
fastidious. On each floor there are
parlor suites consisting of two or more
rooms.

light was one downstairs In tho rear.
Jack went buck whero ho saw the
light nnd looked In through u wludow.
The sight be snw excited an appetite
already keen. Ho was looking iuto a
kitchen, nud viands were cooking on a
stove. There was uo sound except the
sizzling of tbo cooking viands. Jack
put his bund to the snsh and found he
could easily raise It. He did so, and
tbe odor of the cooking, mingled with
the sound of tbe sizzling, wns delicious
to a hungry man. Together they took
away every vestage of conscience. H*
climbed into the window, determined
to partake of the refreshment before
blm.
Tho first thing be did wns to throw
open the oven door, and there was a
turkey just turning a delicious brown.
Jack had served a term in tho galley
aboard ship, and he instinctively basted
the sizzling bird. Then he uncovered
a dish on the rear of the stove and
from the delicious odor It emitted judged that It was a mlnco pie being warmed. Other dishes wero In process of
preparation, but Jack was bo entranced
with the turkey and the pie that be
took little notico of them.
It was hard for him to wait till tbe
turkey was thoroughly cooked, but be
held on to himself and waited. Finally he could refrain no longer, and,
"dishing up," he placed the various
viands on the table and sat down to
eat.
Jack remembered that his mother
used to ask a blessing before each
meal. He could not repeat a blessing
to save his life, but be was so thank'

do brothers or sisters; consequently be
tad no reason for going to whore his

eat a Thanksgiving dinner nfter ha got
there. He was somewhat discouraged
���t tbe information tbat fresh water
fish were not eatable, for bo could not
think of any way to support himself
on a Journey except by grub out of tbe
wnter. He hesitated whether to try it
���r go back on to the ship.
But there was one attraction thnt de-
elded him to go on. During ono year
that he had lived on land be bad played with n Ilttlo girl nnmed Margie.

Ing-lf. indeed, she did live���who connected bim with tbi past. He longed
to _oc her just on<-o to ask her If sho
remembered playing hide and seek in
the haycocks with him.
So he started out the morning of
.h.inksglvlug (lay to walk to tho vll-
Jiigt where he bad spent'this one year.
He 'lldn't remember much about the
route, bnt had been told that ho must
proceed lu northwesterly direction.
Bailer had 2C cents left, v.hlch he be-
���towed upon jjiclc. After a discussion
as to how tho money had best be

_ced a compass even more than food.
So tbey stepped Into a shop, bought a
compass, and after a farewell handshake Jack started on his Journey.

.���..historic Belles Prom Africa.
Central Africa was once the home
of ��� highly civilized people. The
latest proof of this comes from Leo
_ robonlus, a German explorer, who
collected and brought back to Berlin
recently many specimens of ancient
art.    Much of   this material ls not
; older than tho sixth century after
Christ, but the vurious objects were
i found In the ruins of places from 15
to 25 feet below the surface, and
these buildings had been built on
the ruins of still older and more pretentious structures. The latter wero
of solid,   well   built   masonry with
! court yards and gardens surmounted
i by roofs of tiles.
Some of the finest specimens of
statuary and bas reliefs in bronze,
terra cotta and carved quartz come
from these prehistoric ruins. They
rival ln perfection of workmanship
the best relics of ancient Egypt, thus
, proving that in very remote ages Cen-
! tral Africa must have been Inhabited
! by a highly civilized people, and supporting the theory that Africa was the
Beat of the first high civilization
which was transmitted across the
Mediterranean to Europe, while tho
peoples who had founded it sank
gradually Into a condition of Bavag-
ery, through what caun we can onlv

A remarkable dlffe-ence exists between the climates ot western and

districts are distinguished by the
two names Sanindo���shady side���

sea, enjoy dry and comparatively
mild weather. The two regions are
separa'ed by mountain rangeB, and
the factors determining their climate

travesties may have had some semblance of reality In the romanin: days
or Gretna Green, when runaway couples were united ln wedlock by the
village blacksmith, but In these days
a higher Btandard Is placed upon the
ceremony of marriage, both  by  the
civil law and the 1 ,w of tho church.
i    Only the other day an important
point arising out of evidence given by
la Scottish minister at a bigamy trial
In London was settled hy the Registrar-General for Scotland, who  haa
���laid it down that ''witnesses ar   es-
���sentlal" to tho due observance    f a
Scottish marriage. The essence of the
Scots' law is that marriage Is essentially a civil contract.    Thus, If twu
[parties ln tho presorce of witness-.
solemnly and deliberately say 10 eacla
other, "You are my wlfo," "You ar*
jmy husband," tbey are as indhsolu-
hly married a3 If the wholo ceremony
'of  banns,  clergyman,  ..nd  marrlagt
lilacs had lien gone  through.     Nol
Ineed,  therefore,  for  anxiety on  the
Imarriage day about mistakes in than
I formalities; tho want of any or ill ot,
them does not in the least Impair thai
validity of the marriage.   Or a?aln.
If a man and woman write, say. oa
the fly-leaf of a Bible the words, "I
jtako you. A, for my wife,"   M_ "I
take you, I>,  for my  husband."  re-
si- ctlvely, and add their signatures.
iboth intending to marry, they are as
firmly knit as If they had been wed-
|ded by the Archbishop ot Canterbury,
finch are tho unromautlc fa"*.s of a
Scottish marriage.
The   propriety   of   allowln?   marriages to be effected In this __nl �����
way without the safeguard of any religious ceremony has often been qusa-
tioned, but the fact remains that the
Legislature allows it and that "It la
suited," as one authority has said "tn
the Scottish national character and
circumstances.*'     It cannot be said,
iiowever, that such marriages are regarded wllh favor either by the law
or by public opinlou.
I    Another Interesting point cropped
j up the other day when a minister recused to   marry   any   couple whosa
Inames had been published on the registrar's board Instead of having been

thanks ln bl3 own peculiar wny. Then,
straightening up nnd opening his
"blinkers," he sat for a few moments
rigid. A young woman stood looking
nt him from tho other end of tho room.
On her face was nn expression of consternation ut seeing a man sitting at
her table about to eat her Thanksgiving dinner.
"Ship ahoy!" snld Jack by way of
speaking to this person, who bsd so
suddenly appeared on the scene.
"Well, I declare!" wns the reply.
"Would you mind tellin' me what
port you hull from?"
"Would you mind telling mc what
you menn by mnkiug yourself at home

"Is this your dinner?"
"My dinner! Goodness gracious,

doubtless the girl would luivo been
frightened out of her senses. As It
was, sho was simply astonished, Besides, Jack wns a good looking chap,
with nn honest eye In Ills head, and
wben, realizing the situation, n smile
broke out on his comely young face
the ownei of the dinner could not help

A Prophetic Dream.
One of the moBt inexplicable forms
of dream is the prophetic one, instances of which abiund. The 'ate
Lord Duffcrln when in Paris dreamed one night that he was in a hearse
en route for the cemetery. A day or
so later he was entering the lift at a
hotel when he recognized the attendant as the driver of the hearse '

lift ascended without him. As I. near-
ed the top something broke, and it
crashed to the bottom again, killing
every one In it.

kins, "li that worthless young wbip-

hasn't been here In six weeks."

Corea calls itself Tsiotsien; the natives of Slam wben speaking of their

Persian thinks he lives in Iran.
Sli.:.g''i of Eggshells.
Most people are aware of the
power of eggshells to resist external
pressure on Iho ends, but not many
would credit the results of tests recently made, which appear to bo
genuine. Eight ordinary hens' eggs
were submitted lo pressure applied
externally all over tbe surface of the
shell, and tho breaking pressures
varied between 100 and 675 pounds
per square Inch. With the stresses
applied Internally lo ��� twelve eggs
these gave way at pressures varying
between thirty-two and sixty-five
pounds per square inch. The pressure required to crush the eggs
varied between forty and seventy-
five pounds. Tho average thickness
of the shells was thlrteen-thous-
andths of an Inch.
A Lack of Foresight!

It was a prerogative of the minister
that he was not obliged .-> marry parlies unless after proclamation of
banns. In olden days '.he fees cbarg-
jed by church ofilclals or kirk session
for proclamations of banns were very
heavy. An ordinary ehp.rge was $5 ta
.7 50, but sometimes it rose ss high
ns }10. After the Marriage Notice
[Act of 1878 came into operation (for
'the express purpore of encouraging
regular marriages), the church had
to set its house In order, and In ISSi>
an act was passed by the General
'Assembly, in which it was decreed
that the fee for proclamation of banns
and certificates should in no case exceed 60 cents. When originally In-
istltuted, proclamation of banns was
made on three successive Sundays
preceding ihe marriage, but it ls now
sufficient, if proclamation ls made on
iono Sunday "for the first, "econd, and
'third times."
I Dissenters of Btrong opinions like
to show their Independence by patronizing the registrar rather than the
Clerk of the Kirk-Session, but the
women still have the preference to be
"cried ln the kirk." The marriage
"lines" are Issued by the session clerk
or the registrar, as the case may be,
aud the minister of any church can
carry through all the formalities of
the marriage at the bride's home or
in an hotel. A small party c." relatives, or a large assembly, Is gathered, according to the accommodation
of the hoi.se and the means at disposal. The more fashionable have
their weddings about noon or two:
o'clock. But a great number of marriages take place ln tbe evenings
about seven or eight o'clock. Among
the working classes Friday evening:

and the other great towns the last

Proportion of Deaths and
Disease Due to Alcohol
K'litor Review.
Dear Sir:���When one considers
the facts and statements continually
appearing in our n.wspapers aud
magazines, it seems hard to explain
the apathy and indifference people
show in regard to the liquor traffic.
However, there seems to be a
general movement of public opinion
both in Canada and the United
States antagonistic to the traffic
If I can read the signs aright, there
will be some very radical reforms
during the next five or six years.
It is to be hoped that British Columbia; yes. a:id (to coins a little
closer) that ou own Comox Valley
may not be found far behind in this
movement towards better conditions.
The following statements came to
my notice lately. They are by no
means new, but they will bear repeating. They were made by Dr.
T. D. Crothers, the well known
editor of the "International Journal
of Inebriety" and summarized
i from the latest scientific and medical investigations. Dr. Crothers
states that the figures and statements are minimum and can be
confirmed in every way.
(1) Alcohol is both a direct and
Indirect cause of from 10 to 20 per
cent, of all deaths,
(2) Of all forms of nervous diseases, including insanity, alcohol is
both an active aud a contributory
cause in from 10 to 40 per cent.
���(3) Of pauperism and idiocy,
fully 50 per cent, can be traced to
drink.
(4) It was estimated that of 149,
000 persons confired iu prisons for
crime in America in 1906, 50 per
cent were traceable to drink,
(5) During 1900 half a million
persons were arrested and brought
before the courts for drunkenness
and petty crimes caused by drink.
(6) Of accidents on railways.
Steamlxnts, trolley cars, automobiles and other means of conveyance, statistics show fully 50 per
cent due to confusion and stupidity
of persons under the influence of
drink.
It is not difficult to find proof of
many of these statements.
