It ended by my consenting, of

I put out the light and sat down
near the window, with my cigar and
my thoughts. 1 had finished my second cigar. There was a sound ef fumbling at one of tlie shutters below.
With Miss uetitla'a story of the pearls
fresh in my mind 1 felt at once that
the thief, finding bis ten a prize, had
come buck for more.
I found on the mantel a heavy brass
candlestick, and with it in my hand I
stepped int.j the gloom of Uio hallway
and felt my wnj down the stairs. I
had kicked off my shoes, a fact I regretted later. I went into the library,
which was beneath my room, but the
sounds at the window had ceased. 1
thought I heard steps on the walk going toward Ihe front of the house. 1
wheeled quickly and started for the
door when something struck me a terrific blow on the nose. I reeled back
and sat town, dizzy and shocked. It
was only when no second blow followed the first that 1 realized what had

I got back into the dining room.
Some one was fumbling at the shutters there, and as I looked they swung
open. It was so dark outside with
Uio trees and the distance from the
street that only the creaking of the
shutters told it had opened. I stood
in the middle of the room, with one
hand firmly clutching my candlestick.
But the window refused to move.
The burglar seemed to have no proper
tools. He got something under the
sash, but it. snapped, aud through the
heavy plate glass I could hear him
swearing. Then be abruptly left the

uncertainly. 1 was in a peculiar position. Not even the most ..rdent admirers of antique brass candle stickE

to the porch floor. 1 am not a small

of that onslaught I was a child. It
was a porch chair, I think, that knocked me senseless. I know I folded up
like a jacknlfe, and that was all I

When I came to I was lying where

Quickly Cured by Nerviline
"J bave had a long experience in
treating horses, and I can safely say
that I know of no liniment for strains,
sprains, and swelling that Is so useful
around the stable as Nerviline." Thus
writes Mr. J. R. Murchlsnu, from his
home, Crofts Hill P.O. "I bad a fine
young mare that wrenched her right
foreleg, and from the shoulder down
she was stiff, sore, and swollen. I
applied Nerviline, and It worked llko a
charm; in fact, that mare was ln shape
to work a day after I used Nerviline.
"We have used Nerviline on our
farm for twenty-five years, and never
found it wanting. For man or beast
It ls a wonderful liniment."
Five thousand letters recommend
Nerviline as a general household liniment, as an all-round cure for aches
and pains.     Try it yourself.

The Reason
A well known Idiot named Jamie
Fraiter surprised people sometltnos by
his replies. The members of one parish had for soine time distressed tho
minister by their habit of sleeping ln
church. He had often endeavored to
impress them with a senso of the Impropriety of such conduct, and one
day when Jamie was sitting in the
front gallery wide awake when many
wero slumbering round him the clergyman endeavored to arouse the attention of his hearers by stating the
fact, saying: You see even Jamie Fra-
zer, the Idiot, dees not fall asleep, as
so many of you are doing. Jamie, not
liking perhaps to bo designated, coolly replied: And If I hadn't been an
Idiot I would havo been sleeping too.
Trial Is Inexpensive. To those who
suffer from dyspepsia, indigestion,
rheumatism or any ailment arising
from derangement of the digestive
system, a trial of Parmelee's Vegetable
Pills Is recommended, should tho sufferer be unacquainted with them. The
trial will be inexpensive and the result
will bo another customer for this excellent medicine. So effectlvo is
their action that many cures can certainly be traced to their use where

Carter, secretary of the Agricultural Society at the door; he congratulated me for winning the
Bronze Medal and on the wall in
the hall was posted thus "R. J.
Smith won 12 points, M. Ball won
8ppints," the twelve points winning the medal.
I must say I was surprised when
I read the report of the business
meeting of the ���Society in yonr
paper to see that Markham Ball
was awarded the Bronze medal for
taking the most prizes for garden
vegetables at the Exhibition, who
appeared to be also surprised and
elated and said "he appreciated the
medal more, not only for its value
but for what it represents. It had
taken him five years to get his
ground into shape to grow the
vegetables to win with," and well
he might be surprised to have a
medal awarded to him for winning
eight second prizes, whereas I won
four first prizes and four seconds
and one of my first prizes was a ten
dollar prize for the best display of
vegetables, which was counted two
points the same as a common first
prize at $2 which in reality is ten
points, or in other words Mr. Ball
should receive eight dollars in prize
money for his garden vegetables,
whereas'I was awarded twenty
dollars in the same class; I have
received eighteen, two dollars I
have not got yet, viz: the first prize
for Scotch Kale which they omitted
ot give me in the recount, they
made a mistake in this, as there
were only two exhibits of Scotch
Courtenay, B. C.
Kdle iu the hall, Mr. John Knight,
of Point Holmes, took second prize
and I took the first prize for Scotch
At the first meeting of the new
Board of Directors there was a committee appointed to look into this
affair but as yet 1 understand they
have received no light on the subject. Perhaps ex-Pres. Richard
Hurford can explain why they left
out one of my first prizes in the
In a letter I received from Secy.
Richard Carter a few days ago after
the prize was awarded in which he
stated the following:
Mr. R. J. Smith,
Sir: -At the Fair held on the
19th of Sept. it was posted you had
won the Bronze medal for garden
vegetables, but now find after a recount that Mr. Ball has scoreQ one
point more than you did, therefore
is entitled to the medal, which was
presented to him at the annual
meeting on the 4th inst.
I am sorry this mistake hes occurred and hope this explanation is
Yours truly,
R. Carter, Jr."
I would like Mr. Carter to prove
this statement by giving figures
from the Judges books.
Thanking you very much for the
space I have taken in your paper.
I am yours respectfully,

A tree that was said to be the
largest on Vancouver Island fell
down on Monday last, It was located near Westholme and for
several months has been regarded
as dangerous from the fact that it
was shaken from its foundation
and leaned iu the direction of the
E. & N. Railway track at an angle
of 45 degrees, The Government
road gang were instructed to remove
it and last Monday were just beginning to chop it down when it
took a lurch and fell to the ground.
The tree was 16 feet through although not very long ago its top
had broken off. On Monday afternoon and Tuesday a great number
visited the scene of tne dethroned
monarch of the forest and got several good snap shots.

Campbell River
On Friday Dec. 5th, the ladies of
Campbell River assembled at the
Willows Hotel for the purpose of
forming a club in the District.
It bas been considered advisible to
build a hospital at Campbell River
owing to the increased labour in
the lumber camps, snd it was with
this idea that the formation of the
club originated.
The club is to be known as "The
Campbell River Social Benefit
Club," and as will be concluded
from the proposed name, it is to be
a pleasureable combined with an industrial organization.
Officers were elected as follows;
Pres. Mrs Thuliu, Vice-Pres. Mrs.
Morrison, Secretary-treasurer Mrs.
McDonald, executive committee,
Mrs, Jamieson, Mrs. Hanson, Mrs.
Holm, Mrs. Bay, Mrs. Glenville,
Mrs. Crawford, Mrs. Deiner,
Misses. A. Thulin, E. Thnlin, E.
Barwise, M. McNeil, R. Morrison.
The first meeting of the Club
takes place on Monday Dec. 8th,
when the ladies are to be engaged
iu making costumes for the coming
masquerade which will be held at
the Willows hotel, Campbell River,
Dec. 29, the proceeds of which is
to be devoted to the hospital fund.
Mr. and Mrs. Thulin returned to
Campbell Riyer on Dec. 4th after
a few weeks trip to the city. The
sum which they raised towards the
new hospital, to be built at Campbell River, is praise in itself for the
energetic and sympathetic couple,
and the response of the people of
both Vancouver and Victoria denotes the interest they take in the
welfare of their province,
Mrs. Dr. T. H. Jamieson has
been spending a couple of days in
Vancouver from which she returned Dec. 5th.

Board of Trade
The regular monthly meeting of
the Board of Trade was held last
Thursday evening. In the absence
of the President and Vice President,
Dr. Millard was voted to the chair.
A letter from the Attorney General informed the Board that the
Department did not see its way to
appoint a stipeudary magistrate for
Courtenay at the present time, and
pointing out that Mr. Abrams of
Cumberland wis ai liberty to try
all cases arising here. This was
not satisfactory to the Board, and
now that the new lock up is finished it is thought that a resident
magistrate should be appointed.
This will be brought to the Attorney General's attention.
It was reported that the recent
floods had worn away a great portion of the bank opposite the mouth
of the Puntledge River, which, if
not attended to shortly will cause a
deviation of the river. A committee was appointed to look after
the details of calling the attention
of the proper parties to the circum-
6 a ices.
Mr. Clinton of Cumberland telephoned for permission to meet the
Board and the citizens of Courtenay
relative to his proposed waterworks for Courtenay. The matter
was left in the hauds of the Secretary to arrange date.
Two new members were added
to the roll.
Among the guests at the Rest-
more this week are the following:
Mr. McDonald, Cumberland; A. F.
Pickup, Victoria; F, Laco, J. Laine,
Vancouver; Y. Lalo; Mr. Seela;
Mr. Isbestor.

Explor��r Stefansson's Story of Awkward Mishap In the Arctic.
With a rifle snd a Sufficient supply
ni ammunition, said Mr. Villijiilmur
Stofansaon, the Canadian explorer,
lecturing before the Royal Geographical Society in London, it is possible
to go over the discovered lands of
the Arctic, ln the ooursa of an interesting lecture Mr. Stelansion told
a remarkablo story of a live years'
Bojourn in Arctic regions in searoh of
a race of Eskimos who had never before seen a white mnn. They left
New York in Apiil of 1908, and tho
small item that may upset, the best-
laid plans was illustrated by the fact
that they were relying upon a supply
of matches at llerschel't Island on tho
north Alaskan coast, nnd as these
wero not forthcoming Dr. Anderson
had to retrace bis steps a distance ol
1,900 miles to llarreiit. Point fur them.
"The whole expedition cost only $10,-
000," said Mr. Btefanason, and quite
half tli tit nun wns sp"nt in securing
matches. From Hersehell Island tho
party pushed steadily eastward and
reached Cape Party iii the winter, and
hero they found 11 whale, which eked
out their provisions fortuitously.
'"That whale," recalled the explorer
with a dry smile, "bad been dead four
years." Tlie Eskimos snid so. It had
frozen in the winter, and hnd I hawed
in the summer. It was after he had
teen two years in the Arctic that Ste-
iansson set out upon his specific quest
for the Eskimos who, to use his own
words, "had not been contaminated
toy missionaries or traders���(laughter)
--of course, I mean from the scientific
.point of view." After a long pursuit
Btofansson, standing on a nut, saw
the party be was searching for seal
hunting about seven miles uway, and
went after them. The Eskimos thought
they were spirits, and prepared to
defend themselves, but his (Stcfans-
ion's) Kskimos discovered that they
spoke a similar dialect, and peace was
scoured and introductions to all the
tribe���men, women and children���ensued. Intellectually these Eskimos
were on a level with the inhabitants
of Great Britain 10,000 years ago. It
was on Victoria Island that he came
across tbe blonde Eskimos, whom lie
preferred to call bronze or copper.
They eyes were blue, their eyebrows
and whiskers fair, nnd the formation
ol the bead nnd face akin lo Europeans. Sir John Franklin bad re-
curded tbat he saw one such Eskimo
in 1824 in the Coppermine district,
and StefaiiBson said he 1 ad come to
the conclusion that tbey were descendants oi an ancient race ot settlers
who, originating in Scandinavia, bad
traveled to Mackenzie by way of Iceland.

of North Toronto. Mr. Ritchie, moreover, as far as be is aware, enjoyed
the unique distinction of being the
youngest member of the volunteers
who took part in repelling the Fenian
Raid in 1866.
Mr. Ritchie was born at Kingston
in 1850. and at the age of 14 he joined
tbe volunteers. When thn Fenian
Raid took place in IS6G, Mr. Ritchie,
then only 16 years old, was sent with
bis regiment, to Cornwall, where it
was stationed till tbe trouble blew__
In 1870 the Louis Rial rebellion,
which led to the Red River expedition, broke out, and Private Ritchie
was one of the. members of the expedition. Mr. Ritchie recalls how one
day, at a wild spot away beyond Lake
Superior, he and some of his com-
panions-in-arros were picking raspberries when Col. Wolseley rude up on
horseback. Mr. Ritchie, who had his
linen bat cover full of the berries,
offered them to liis commander, and
the colonel helped himself.
Asked about Hie expedition, Mr.
Ritchie described how they went by

journey from there to Fort (larry.

The meeting called by tlie Board
of   Trade to   hear   Mr.   Clinton's
proposition for a \v; terworks system
for Courtenay was held   Last night
Mr McPhee, tin.'president occupied
tlie chair and introduced Mr Clinton
who briefly stated lhat   two  years
ago he had made overtures to   get
his company to come here but was
unsuccessful     He had obtained an
option to supply Mine 8   and   had I
plenty of water to   supply   Courtenay also.    It would cost from 35
to 40 thousand dollars to iustal the
system.    In the event of Courtenay
incorporating it would sell at value
fixed by   arbitration     The   stock
would be offered here for   30 days
and any not taken would   be   sold
elsewhere     It will be run absolutely h��nest,   no   promotion   shares.
We did not expect it would pay at
the start-    Cumberland waterworks
did not  pay  dividends   for   eight
years and Electric light did not pay
for five years,
The company would not be overcapitalized, and the territory served
would make it very valuable to
Courtenay in the event of her buying, If Courtenny comes into the
scheme water would be here by
June I, Said the local company
would not have head enough to
supply No, 8, and could not get
permission anyway. With all due
respect to the Review, the Cumberland people did not consider the C.
& U. W. Co. any octopus, thought
they could do Courteuay good if
given the chance,
Dr.  Millard said   his company
was not on the defensive, and he
had nothing to say at this stage.
Mr. Clinton said there was absolutely no animosity between the
two companies. By supplying
Mine 8 and Courtenav he was sure
it would pay dividends, There
was no inonex in supplpiug Cumberland alone,
Mr, Willard advised against incorporation,  f.nd thought the citizens  should  form   a  league,   and
make the best terms possible with
one of the companies, taxes would
j surely raise if we incorporate.
;    Mr. McPhee was a believer in cc-
j operation,    co-operative    societies
;seiied   to    flourish   here,     and
I thought the citizens should get together and build their own waterworks���they could  make just as
much money out of it as a company,
Mr, Blight wanted to know, why,
if there was nothing in supplying
water, the company were so anxious
to get in here.
Mr, Clinton said he was cot trying to slip anything over on courtenay.
Dr, Millard said it was up to
some of the public spirited men to
take hold of the matter, So far as
he or his company was concerned,
they could have tlieir charter and
franchise at cost, If there was water
here more substantial buildings
would be built, and the company
would not be opposd to incorpor
Dr, crompton said that courtenav
seemed to be in the position of a
beautiful maiden with two suitors,
Mr. Clintou said that he thought the
coal company was quite as much the
backbone of Courtenay as it was of Cumberland. He thought there was money
in water or he wouldn't be in it.
Mr, McPhee said the citizens of Cour-

|    Mr. Towler said the reasou Cnmber-
, land was mentioned was because she was
always beiug held .ip to us as a horrible
| example of incorporation. Disinterested
men of wide experience advised us to incorporate a ed to do it at once. The ap-
proxinctc cost o'. bringing water from
Brown's river was #33,501). The cost
of bringing it from Dr. Millard's springs
21,000, plus 4,000 for D. Kilpatrick's
rights, and if we buy from tlie company,
an additional 30 per cent.
After some more short passages the
meeting adjourned to consider the matter and report later.
A vote of rliauks was tendered the
