hy great distress aud often nausea, i
tried many so-called euros, bul did not
get more than temporary relief, aud
naturally 1 was going down both in
health nnd strength, and was greatly
discouraged. While in this despondent condition 1 was advised lo try
Dr. Williams' Pink Pills. 1 doubted
that they would euro me after so
many other medicines bad failed, but
as I wanted health and the Pills were
highly recommended 1 decided to try
them. I am thankful now that I did
so, for after'taklng Dr. Williams Pink
Pills for Ave or six weeks every vestige 0f the trouble had lefi me. aud I
was again blessed with the best of
health. From my own experience I
believe there is no case of indigestion
Dr. Williams' Pink Pills will not cure,
If given a fair trial."

bund, now settled unwillingly in the

"She's milking sure lhat (here'sa nice

By this time David Murstou was not
the only passenger interested iu tbe domestic drama, livery mini mid woman
in the ear hnd laid aside paper or bonk,
roused to attention by ihe piercing
tones and dominating hearing of the
woman. The shrill speech might bave
been forgiven on the plea that tbe bus-
band was evidently very deaf, 'lhe
manner was less forgivable. Newly ac
quired riches were stamped all over
tbe tightly laced, middle aged figure.
Tbe eharucterless face, due to much
electric mtissugiug. spoke of hours
Bpent.with beauty experts Her frock,
wrap and hat shrieked "Purls!"
Evidently the couple were going
back to New York ufler u brief stay
at their lodge in the Catskills. for the
limited hud stopped at the small town
close to fashionable mountain fastnesses on special orders.
"Yon don't think anything will bap-

"It's a vestlbuled train!" shrieked
bis wife. "1 told her to stay until all
three of the dogs bail been properly

came���   Oh. there she is!"
There was much craning of necks as
the third  member of ibis interesting
party  came through the narrow pas- ;
tsagewny   around  the  drawing   room.
Her  advent   promised   further  enter- |
tainment to travel  bored  passengers.
Only one of the latter did not crane j
his neck.   He simply snt staring at the
girl,   his  hands  gripped  hard on  the
arms of the chair.
She  wns a  slender,  refined looking
girl,  dressed in  black  from  her dull
cnlfskln ties to her stiffly tailored trav- j
cling hat.    At her throat and  wristi |
were  line  linen  bands.    Marstou  recalled wltti a shudder, that a maid who .
had opened Ihe door for him at a fash j
ionnble  Denver home had  worn just
Mich a black frock with white bands.
The girl carried n bundle of eunes,
umbrellas nnd golf sticks. As she i
tilted tbem 111 the corner beside the |
elderly mnn she said something to him j
which he seemed to hear, though she
did not follow his wife's example and |
raise ber voice.   He settled back with |
��� contented air.
"There's your chair. Emily," said the
woman,  waving her hand across the
aisle.   The girl turned, stepped across
the aisle,   looked ut   Mnrstuu,  caught '
her breath sharply and sank Into her |
chair, which she wheeled so that her i
back was turned squarely upon hlni,
By  this  lime  David  had  recovered j
thought and speech.    He  rose, dellb-
erately walked in front of the girl uud
extended his haud.

Notes and Comrnc: j
It is reported that a Jap boa! was
fishing in tltc Comox liarl or l.isi
week. When the gamewardeu and
inspector arrived on' the scene, however, they had decamped, it will
not lie well for these gentry if they
are caught,
It does not appear to be generally
known that it is unlawful to take
'trout under eight inches long from
any stream iu British Columbia. A
couple of Japs were fined on Monday for breaking this regulation.
This should be sufficient warning
to all anglers. The game fish must
be preserved.

to  suggest  that  the  centenary of I
peace is a golden opportunity for I
the United States, Britain ami Ger- j

The authorities of Cumberland
should investigate the sources of
their milk and butter supply. We
are creditably Informed that some
of it goes from this district from
some of the most disreputable an 1
dirty dairies that can well be imagined. In fact the creamery here
will not accept cream from them.
What is not good enough for the
people of this district should uot be
good enough for Cumberlands citizens. Just so long as Cumberland
will accept product from these
places, we can do nothing to clean
them up here.

Votes Againsl Incorporation
' On Tuesday evening, May i,Uh,
a large number of the residents of
i this district gathered in the Opera
I House to hear the question of in-
1 corporation; discn-sed. When the
hall became comfortably filled, Dr.
j Millard moved and Mr. Urqulurt
seconded that Kx-Mayor MacLeod
of Cumberland, who was present,
Ilie chairman, and Mr. Ross was
afterwards appointed secretary.
The chairman said  there were a
. great many things to be considered.
He then called upon Mr. McPb$*$,
j who explained that the 11o!\y*,| of
Trade, at its last meeting; h^ad decided to call a public uuvtHitj to
have the question f\| to the advis-
I ability of i��><;0V(V>r;iUon  discussed,
I There. WW uvor 100 residing in the
area proposed to be incorporated,
j aud il was necessary to secure the
j approval of tilt: Owners of Jo pel'
cent of the taxable property before
. incorporation could be secured.
Mr. Morrison asked the chairman
I to call upon some of the Cumberland  gentlemen who were present
to tell us how incorporation went
in Cumberland
Mr. White said he did not come
down to speak, came to listen.
Mr. Peacey said ' e was not
familiar with Cumberland politics,
but thought that incorporation was
practically a failure.
Mr. Tarhell said the gentlemen
present took a very poor wwn as
an example to quote from when
they chose Cumberland for various
r.-asoi s
Mr. F. Cameron said he was
opposed to incorporation, was uot
a knocker, but that while it might
be a good thing for real estate, the
best men rarely got into municipal
politics, aud he was much surprised
at the attitude of some of the
Dr. Crompton said he was in
favor of incorporation, and for
various reasons. It was imperative
that we have water and light soon,
and it was most important that
these utilities bs kept in the public's
hands and that if we started incor-
porat'ton now, the government
would probably not allow the waterworks Co., to secure control of the
water and light. If the city owned
these utilites it would make for
low taxation. At the present rate
of assessment there would be plenty
of money to grade streets, lay sidewalks etc., without ihcreasing the
taxation in any particular.
Mr. Morrison wanted to know
how much land was going to be
taken in. Mr. McPhee said about
1000 acres.
Mr. Cameron wanted to know
why the committee were not here
to explain the .boundaries. Mr.
Anderton said that Mr. Cameron
was on the committee, and if he
had attended the meetings he would
know all about it.
Mr. Camtrou then moved, and
H. Morrison seconded, "that this
gathering of citizens is not in favor
of incorporation at the present
In speaking to the motion, Mr.
Calhoun said he had not given the
question any consideration but was
open to conviction.
Mr. Johnston said the property
owners on the east side of the river
were opposed to incorporation.
Ha ry King sti 1 if there were no.
drunks there would be no need of
Dr. Millard said that as far as
Courtenay was concerned in the
light question, we were at the
mercy of the power company.
Courtenay needed water, and if any
other body of men would take up
the question and re embures them,
the present cempany would gladlv
let them go ahead. It was water
they wanted���not incorporation.
Constable Haunay said that he
had been here eight months and
had had uo complaints about bad
language on the street, and only
one case of fighting. If he arrested
every one who was under the influence of liquor he would have to
lock up some of our prominent
Dr. Millard said that probably
there was more drinking than was
desirable but at'any rate there was
not more than in many other new
districts, and did not think incorporation would help any,
Mr. McPhee said he had not been
in a hurry to incorporate, but that
it was now necessary in order to
secure the water and light service
for the  community,    Cumberland
1 had become poor in building schools
and sewers, while  the  water and j
light companies had    become rich]
at the expense of the citizens.   The j
reason they were now in a hurry to
incorporate,   was  that    the water ( Phone
company was in a hurry, aud if the J
company got control there  would

would never gc't, a chance.

the cases of her daughter and grand
daughter, and for this reason her letter is particularly interesting to parents.
Mrs. J. A. Gallop, 1"5 Victoria
street. St. John, N.B.. whose husband
is a carpenter, states :���"VVe have
used Dr. Chase's Nerve Food in our
family for nervousness, headaches,
dizziness and nervous dyspepsia, and
hate found them satisfactory In every
particular. My daughter Bessie was
going to school, and became quite run
down in health. By the time she had
used three boxes of this remedy her
nerves were steady, her general
health was excellent and she was entirely free from headaches and dizzy
spells. We ere more than pleased
with the results of this treatment.
"More recently we used the Nerve
Food fnr my granddaughter, who was
out of school for nearly a year from
nervous trouble, and noticed Improvement In her condition at once."

William Julian Gets
Term of Five Years
Mr, Wm. Duncan is back for a
few days before resuming his post
on the Agricultural Commission,
Mr. Michael Manson, M.'L. A.,
spent a few hours in Sandwick last
Friday evening.
Mr. Iv G. Everett was thrown
from his bicycle on Monday morning, sustaining a broken arm as
well as a broken collarbone.
The Rev. Thos. Meuzies left on
Tuesday night for the General As>
sembly at Toronto, and hopes to
return early in July.
May 24, Empire day, being, a
public holiday, the Saudwick post-
office will be closed all day as well
as the Corner store. There is no
inward mail between Friday morning aud Monday morning.
William Julian pleaded ���guilty-
last Wednesday afternoon at Nanaimo Assizes to a charge of breaking and entering Fraser & Bishop's
store at Union Bay on the night of
March 9, nnd was sentenced to five
years in the penitentiary.
At the trial of Wagner, who
was found guilty of the murder of
Constable Westaway, Julian gave
evidence against Wagner and in
consideration of this fact the court
dealt   leniently with  Julian,   who
put up a strong plea for clemency,
claiming to have been the unwilling companion of Wagner in the
attempt to rob the store, which resulted in Wagner killing Westaway
Julian running away at the first
sign of danger.

on the ground that the vessel, wtiicb!

Herr Ledebottr, the socialist, opposed the proposal, declaring that ihe
naval estimates took Into consideration only warships and not pleasure
yachts for lhe kaiser. If the kaiser
as coramander-ln-chlef requires an official vessel, said Herr Ledebour, every battleship has special suites of
roonis for that purpose. If the kaiser wants a private ship let him pay for
it himself.

further, declaring that the kaiser was
utterly unfit to command any naval
maneuver, never having passed any
examination or teet. Me was nierelj

Admiral von Tirpitz, the naval minister, protested warmly against the
