Growing Children

Their health as men and women is largely

If your child is languid, bloodies, tired when rising, without ambition or rosy checks, Scott's Emulsion is a wonderful

there Is U  Staircase there except the I

1 went without enthusiasm. Margery's departure hnd been delayed for
a day only, and I hud counted on tl_
evening wllh her. Burton's idea was
to go over the ground at tho White
Cat again.
"I don't hang so much to ibis staircase idea," Burton said, " and I havo
a good reason for it. 1 think We will
llnd it Is the warehouse, yet."
"Vou can depend on it, Burton," I
. maintained, "that tlio staircase is the
place lo look. If you had seen War-
drop's face today and his agony of
mind when he knew lie hnd associated
'staircase' with 'shot

who knew Ihe ropes, could go Quietly

Schwartz would go In, walk around

"lie had a neck," I retorted. "I suppose ho might have turned bis bead
to look around."
We had been walking through lhe
rain. Tlie While Cat, as far off as tile
|_lcs socially, was only a half dozen
b.;rks actually from the beflt residence .portion of the city. We had
stopped near the arched gate where I
bad stood and waited for Hunter a
week before. Suddenly Burton darted
away from mo and 1 heard him splashing through a. puddle In the gloomy
"Come in!" he called softly. "The
water's line!"
The gate swung to behind me, and
i could not see six inches from my

It Might Have Happened Anyway
A certain minister wus greatly disturbed by n number of women in his
congregation who persistently gossiped ir. a loud tone during service. Ono
Sunday morning he executed . plan
which lie liad devised to stop this annoyance. Al a nlven signa Ihe choir
stopped ahruply on a certain word
iu Ilie middle of a hymn. Then one of
the gossips, unable to check herself,
was heard all over the church to say:
"I always fry mine In lard." "As wc
know," announced lhe minister, "Hint
she always fries lies In lard, we will
proceed with the singing."

Deafness Cannot Be Cured
In perfect, health, Willi regular and
betllthful action of tbe liver and
kidneys, you need not know there is
such a thing as digestion or indigestion. Unfortunately, however, modern life is artilicial, and not many
people avoid suffering more or less
from troubles of this nature.
Thn great cecret lies In keeping the
liver and kidneys In health and vigor,
for then tlu food is passed quickly
along tbe alimentary canal, the nutritive portions being assimllutcd in the
blood stream am the poisoned waste
materials are passed out of the body.
When the liver and kidneys get
wrong you will obtain relief most
promptly and effectively by using Dr.
Chase's Kidney-Liver Pills. If chronic
indigestion is to ho cured it must be
ly enlivening Ihe action of these iil-
tering and excretory organs. To persons who have tbcught only of the
stomach as being the offending organ

that, but an arm could be steadied ou

me with  a final instruction.
"Wait for fen minutes," he said. "It

clubhouse. Perhaps you'd better make
it, fifteen."
He went, away into tbe darkness,
and I sat down on an empty box by
the window and waited. Had any one
asked me at that minute how near
wo were to the solution of our double
mystery I would have said wo had
made no progress, save by eliminating Wardrop. Not for one instant did
I dream lhat I was within less than
half an hour of a revelation lhat

Steam For the Soil
For sonve time certain growers of
tomatoes, cucumbers, and similar vc
etables fur ihe London market bav2
been injecting sleam inlo ths soil witi
t view to destroying certain insects
and slugs. It Is repot tod tbat the
plan works very well for that purpose, hut the operalon has brought to
light an unexpected fact: namely, that
tho soil thus treated increased greatly
in fertility, so greatly, in fact, tbat
the ordinary amount-of uiauurc cannot be used afterward.
This effect has been explained as
being due to the sterilization produc
ed by the sleam, which kills tbo pbag
oeytes or protozoa which in ordinary
circumstances keep down tha nu���ber
of bacteria iu the soil whose operations are bcnelieient in turning or
ganic nitrogen into a form suitable f .
plant food.
The Orange
I    The orange was brought from Asia
lio Spain and Portugal in lhe sixteenth
| century.   It was taken to South Atner-
I lea , by tile early explorers and ran
l wild tn the forests of the Amazon. Originally a small, sour fruit, it has been
cultivated up to lis present sizo and
sweetness.    The orange  industry  began In the United -fates -bout 1875
and  ..bout  18S5  was  well  advanced.
Tho number of orange trees in this
country is now close to 10,0.0,000, of
which    California has about 60 per
cent, and  Florida "0, the remainder
being chiefly  in  Louisiana and  Arizona.

I tried several remedies without any

Cost of Colt Rearing
Observations made by the bureau of
statistics of the United States department of agriculture show the average
cost of raising a three-year-old colt to
be $10-1, or deducting the value of his
labor, during the period, a net cost of
J9S.50. This figure represents 71 P=r
cent, of the selling value.
The figures are the results of reports made by fen thousand correspondents���reports which showed the
cost to vary widely by states, that, in
the east being about twice ���_ much as
lhat iu the west.
Of the Ui-,1 cost, 51 per cent, is'
churged to feed, 18 per cent, to care j
and shelter, and llll per cent, to mis-,
cellaneotis items. Since more than;
all the cost of raising is chargeable
to feed, it may readily lie seen that
the prices of feedstuffs have an im-'
poitaut bearing upou the cost of nils-!

The Editor, Courtenay Review
Dear Sir:���I read with much interest, the letter signed "A Res
dent of the District," which
appeared in your valued p per a
few weeks ngo, aud as he requ ls
a further outline of our purpose
other than that already explained
in your columns, 1 have great
pleasure in giving him same.
The fact that Courtenay needs a
Public Hospital, hns been ah admitted fact for a number of years, an !
about n year ago u Public Meetiu ;
was called to go into the question,
a committee was formed, and ns far
as can 11_' ascertained thai was tl, ���
end of the mailer. The questlou
having been aglliu opened up upon
the occasion of the last visit i i
Courteuay of Mr, M, Manson, M,
p. P., ii was thought thai the best
means of avoiding a repetition of
our previous experience aud ex-
petite  mailers  would  be  for one
j person to devote his available time
to the project, and then when he
had the full data ready, to
call a Public Meeting to deal with
the same.
This, I am at present engaged
upon, a Suitable site has been
promised at a very reasonable
figure, and the  vendor, Mr.   Win.
' Duncan, has promised half of the
purchase price of $6oo as his contribution to the fund. Plans have
been prepared by a firm of Victoria
Architects and are now in the
hands of the Provincial Secretary
for appoval,

That there has already been a
Private Hospital opened at Comox
will not deter us irom goillg ahead
with our project, the need for a
Public Institution iu the District is
just as great, the Sisters are to be
commended upon their enterprise,
and I have no doubt that the same
will be conducted by tlu in in the ir
usual kind and able manner, but
still the fact thot their hospital is
denominational and therefore barred as such from receiving any
.support from the < lovernment pie-
vents them from taking in any
other than well paying patients as
it is an unfortunate but well known
fact that these Institutions are not
paying propositions.
Another point iu favour of the
establishment of a Public Hospital
at Courteuay is that in ease ol
serious acoident or illness ihe
patients should be placed ill the
hospital as quickly as possible, had
they to be moved to _omox that
would lie very little advantage over
a journey to Cumberland as is
necessary at present.
I wish to assure "A Resident"
we have uo wisli in any way lo
conllict willi the worthy Sisters of
Comox. Courteuay does now and
will always require a hospital of its
own, and we are going to full speed
abend with our selieiue and we hope
that shortly we sha[l be iu a position to call a public meeting, and
submit the work done to tlie residents of the District, for their
approval and further instructions.
Should there be any other point
Upon which "A Resident" or others
wish to be enlightened, 1 shall be
pleased to give them any further
information in my possession either
through these columns or iu person.
Thanking you for granting me
so much valuable space in your

I'hillp CuiT-ii, Who was drowned
April 27, 1.1.
A boy ol sweet und sonny nature,
Lived on the shores of Mud May.
With :i happy smile and cheerful deeds;
lie would brighten a cheery day.
Mischief danced in his dink brown eyes,
His pretty brown hair   had   a   slight
little curl,
A voice that was low and sweet,
Like thai of senile Southern girl,
He found his way i > every heart,
lie was a friend to every oue,
And they in return loved iiini well,
All who ever met him;   Yeaeveryone,
Only thirteen years had passed hiin  by;
Hut he was tall, yes, seven inches and'
live feet,
(Ih! to think of one sn young,
So sunn liis doom to meet,
A stroug swimmer was he,
To save his life, his brother tried,
But tlie night was dark   and   the   water
And  the current swift,  of the outrunning tide.
Oh! those cruel, cruel waters.
Always seeking human prey,
There, at its cold and muddy bottom,
Our laughing laddie lay.
He was sought, alas, too late
By grief-stricken, but loving hands,
All was clone to bring hint back,
But   he   had   crossed   the   border   to
anoth'et  land.
When he left his home that evening;
Little did   we  think;   that  be   would
Never return to it again,
That he had gone forever and forever,
While those lhat are  left to mom  his
Are bitterly, bitterly, weeping,
In that cold iind silent grave,
lie is peacefully sleeping.

Fatal Accident at No 8 Mine
A sad fatality occurred at No 8
Mine on last Thursday, the 28th
of April, when Wm. J. Styles met
with au accident, lesulting iu
instantaneous death.
Wm. J. Styles, who was employed as pumpman at No 8 Mine, was
due to come off shift on the
morning of the 28th of April at 7
a. 111. when in some manner he
was caught by ,the cage and received injuries to his head, causing
instantaneous death.
"Billy" as he was familiarly
known around No 8 Mine, was one
of the most popular men on the
job. and deservedly so. his cheerful smile and friendly manner,
making friends of all he came in
contact with,
He was connected with No 8
Mine, ever since its inception,
having started over two years ago,
when the rosd leading to the Mine
was being built.
The body was shipped last Friday, to his home in Nova Scotia.
His friends at No 8 Mine wish to
pay this tribute to his memory, to
express their sorrow at his death,
and their sympathy with his
relatives in their bereavement.

Farmers, resident Indians, prospectors and surveyors are allowed
under certain conditions to kill
game and deer for food.
Hunting at night, and over cleared or enclosed land is prohibited.

automatic shotguns of any description is prohibited.
Three deer of any one species, or
more than four in all, and two hundred and fifty ducks are two items
on the bag limit list.
Resident hunters are required to
take out licenses, good for one
year, as follows: Game birds and
deer, $2,50; big game, birds and
trapping, $10. For non-residents
the fees will be: Fishing, big game
and birds$50, or $5 per week; bear
hunting, $25; fishing $5.
Licenses are not transferable.
No license will be granted to any
boy under sixteen years of age, excepting at the written request of
parents or guardians, who must
undertake to see that such a license
is under constant supervision.
The dance on Saturday night
was the most successful since the
opening of Mr. Hart's dance hall.

What Incorporation Means and.
What It Does Not
The last week lias seen great activity i
among the opponents of Incorporation,
Tlio promoters of the  Water Company.'
the gentleman  who lias  four thousand
dollars to make It 11 the company goes
through, the slaoon keepers and  their
salelite . nnd ii   few  other disinterested'
parties, li. v  li en .cgurhlg���the.neig-liliour- j
li mil to get . igiiutu'res against Incorporation,    ileing in   a   desperate   state   of
panic, Iliey have not In sitated to use the
wildest and  most   insi  eo:e  arguments,
Tbey havemisrepresented the Ium claries
tlie reasons lor incorporation, and above
all, the future rale of taxation.
As there are many people who may
not have looked the fact squarely in the
face, and ns moreover we areall inclined
to believe any statement, however un-
, reasonable, if it is repeated often enough,
it may be as well to explain what incorporation means to us, and what it does
not mean.
The area to be included was settled by
the Board of Trade more than a year
ago, taking the C. P, l . depot as centre
au area of 1200 acres was taken ill. It i.s
a fatal error to take in too small an area.
It is easy to contract your boundaries
afterwards, but almost impossible to expand. On the N. K. side of the river
we ouly take in ab< u 25 acres of I. wis's,
including his townsite, and the river
frontage; as (ar as Crawford's barn. The
Dyke road is the boundary of this strip.
We do not take in more of the flats, because the land is too low lying and damp
to be suitable for residences, although it
is great farming land.
The Provincial Government will not
open side streets, nor will it deal with
surface drainage, sewerage or water
supply. They will not provide fire service, street lighting, or any of the things
we need. When population has so increased that these things become necessary, the Government says it is no job
for tiie province. It is our out look. If
we want these things we must do them
for ourelves aud by ourselves. We must
get incorporated.
Does any one deny that we have reached this stage? We certainly have, and
we shall I o a long way the ct'ier side of
It in a year or two. Of course, Mr. Kilpatrick, _r. Fechn'r and Dr. Millard
say that this is a bum little village anyway They cftmiot see that there is any-
future before Courtenay. They do not
(or don't want to) believe that the place
is going to grow. In other words they
are fine old crusted specimens of the
genu knocker. They are knocking
Courtenay in Cumberland. They were
knocking Courtenay at Victoria, even before the Executive Council.' Highly
patriotic citizens! The man who knocks
his own town because he is a born pessimist is bad enough, but the. man who
knocks his own town because he has
some personal end to gain, is wholly
We have been told 15y a high authority
that we are all real estate grafters,   that
we, who .ire trying to get the place incorporated, are only doing so because
wc see that tin re will be a better inarkel
and bigger prices lur our lots.
The suit e authority a fe . mouth;
busk, told us we should scare all Inner-
nw'.iy if we were inco porated, a: d wt
shouldn't si 11 auvlhing. Which way
will he have il? lie can't have it botii
ways. The plain (act is that as a muni
cipality, we shall have tlu- power to pass
u by-law, insisting ���that on all new subdivisions, all roads shall be graded be
fore the lots can be put on the market,
Will this encourage or discourage wild
c itting.
A large'employer of Oriental 'about
has been rushing around crying that his
taxes will be raised eight fold. Hut why
stop at eight? Why not say twenty oi
filly fold at ouce? It is just as easy to
say, and quite as likely. Tell truth, and
shame the devil.
At present we pay 6 1 - 2 mills ill all
unequal assessment of half a million
dol ars. Next vears levelling up \ i
bring it to $700,000. Ten mills on that
would give us JffOIIII revenue. The
Govt at present take $10110 in licenses
o.it of Courtenay. As an incorporated
city it shall get $250(1 from this source.
In Duncans, for instance, the banks pay
$30(1 a year, and the hotels $45(1.
The running expenses of the municipality including rent of hall, salaries,
school maintainence; and teachers'
salaries, and orniuary upkeep will amount
to $3000.    If we  allow  $3500  that  will
1 ave us, on _ ten mill levy, $6000 a
year to spend on road improvement aud
surface draining and other works.
The Government at present spend
under $2500 a year in the proposed municipal area. The Government will still
maintain the Island Highway and bridge
and perhaps the Cumberland Road.     ,
Does that look like reckless finance.
We can feel assured that under the
new Govt, regulation of municipal loans
we shall have uo difficulty in raising
money for waterworks. If we issue 30
year debenture, with a sinking  fuud  of
2 per cent, we shall be able to get par
value for 6 per c-nt, and probably 90 for
5 per cent. >Su,)p >se we want $45000 we
issue $50,000 at 5 1-2; Say we sell at 90
That gives us $45000. For the first year
or two we shall have to raise the interest
by levy. We should need $2750 interest
and $1000 sinking fund, making $3750 a
year in all. This is equal to a levy of
5 1-2 mills. In a few years this charge
on this rate would be wiped out by increasing profits. The sinking fund will
automatically pa_j- off the $50,000 issue
ut Uie end of 29 years.        -
Now mind you the water consumers
have got to pay the interest on the
capital anyway, whoever raises it. These
water Company promoters arn't in it for
their health. The difference is that
every year the city will be growing
richer and the relief of taxation greater
if the water and light are owned by ourselves,   whereas if a private company

This high taxation cry is just a bogey
to scare y _. with. Once these people
get their water company in, they will be
the first to call for incorporation. For
then they will be able to get the city to
buy them out at a comfortable 30 per
cent premium, as provided by the Water

The plain fact is that you are your own
ma-.ters in the rate of taxation under a
municipality. If you are content to go
on as you are now. just maintaining the
present roads, wanting no sidewalks, no
side streets, no improvements, you
could do it on a 6 1-2 mill municipal levy
and save money on it. If you want
these improvements, you have got to do
them youuselves and pay for them yourselves. They won't get done otherwise.
The government won't do them, nor
will the Water Works Company, for all
their philanthropy.

Half a ceiiltiry ago the celebrated
gambling house nl Monte Carlo did lint
exist. At Hull time Itaden linden was
the center ot attraction for 1 hose who
wished to "buck the llgol'." The building devoted to tlio purpose was not as
splendid us that now nl Mottle Carlo,
but il was a handsome one for (hose
One night a man of menu appeal'
Slice entered the spacious gambling
Iiuil tit linden Itaden, shambled up to
tlie table uud stood behind those In-
closing It looklug at tlio game. Ills
eyesight seemed to he sensitive, for lis
wore colore^ glasses. Ills clothing
was shabby, and his appearance was
by no means Improved by tils beard,
Which was long and scraggly.
After watching tho game for awhile
lie pushed his way to u sent beside the
table that had been left vacant by a
woman who hnd lost all her money
and bad nothing for u slake. On tbo
stranger's left was a Gorman baron,
who, looking aside nt his new neighbor
and uot relishing tbo proximity of siicb
a looking man, gathered up the coins
before him aud withdrew.
The seedy Individual drew from his
[locket a purse, from which bo took a
few gold pieces and distributed them
over the numbers ho wished to cover.
Tho wheel was spun, tho ball rattled
about iu tho inelosure, and the croupier aunouneed whnt had won nnd
what bad lost. The stranger was
abend on his bets. The next time he
lost, and next won and eontlni id tc
win and lose, his winnings usually
equaling his losses.
; At tbe table directly opposite the
newcomer sat a young man, whom a
number of the players recognized as a
member of the ducal court, lie was
known to bo talented aud a favoritt
wltb his sovereign. Much of his time
was spent at tbe gaming table, aud ro
port said that a splendid estate be pos
Hcssed was gradually being transferred to others through the roulette table. On this occasion he was playing
feverishly, risking large sums and ustt
ally losing.
, At last be bad nothing more to lost
ind sat with bis hat drawn down ovei
C _ _ -\��
Ills eyes, doubtless to conceal his emotion, looking fixedly ou the red where

At the moment n handsomely dressed
IWoman entered the he'i wilb a hasty
step and approached the tablo evidently looking for some one. Seeing tbe
nobleman, she went to blm, stood be-
bind blm and was about to lay a baud
on his shoulder when the seedy individual opposito pushed a handful ol
gold pieces iu front of bis vis-a-vis.
Whether the latter did not understand
tbat an offer of a loan bad been made
him or whether he declined to accept a
favor from-one of such disreputable
_pp.nr.ince uone could tell. Hut he
continued to gaze as before on tho red,
making no motion to use the proffered
coins. Tben the man wbo bad mnde
tbo offer partly rose, reached across
tbe tablo and placed the money be bad
Offered on a spot where If It w n It
(Would win 0 to 1.
��� Tbls Incident held the hand ot the
lady behind the nobleman, nnd Instead
���f letting It fall where sbe bad Intended sbe waited.   The wheel was
spun, tbe imii rattled, and. being at
last caught In one of (tie receptacle*
tlie croupier announced the result. A
dozen gold pieces that the seedy man
bad placed for his vis avis were covered by sixty pieces of the same denomination.
All eyes were fixed nn the winner to
see what he would do. Would lie accept his winnings? If so would ho
repay the lon:f. Would bo replace bin
new stake? Would ho leave the whole
��� mount where it was?
lie answered these (iiiesllons by doing nothing, lie mnde nn motion. Ills
bat concealed the upper part of till
face so that ne ��no could see what It
expressed. Since he did not withdraw liis winnings It wns assumed
Hint ho would leave them where they
were. If ho lost he would lose the
whole amount; If lie won he would
win live limes the sixly or ".00 gold
The direction "Make yntil' bets" was
given, nnd the wheel was twirled.
Hy Ihls (line those about Hie table
bud largely lost Interest in ihelr own
bets lu th�� more absorbing diversion
of watching this reckless plnyer, wbo
teemed resolved tu risk ull on ono turn
nf the wheel. The ball rattled louder
than ever in the surrounding silence.
The bush continued tilt tUOcroupier announced that the !i to 1 bet had won
again, then burst forth a din of e"���
clu illations.
The only Impassive person at tbo
table was the winner. Uo made no
sign of excitement, did not extend a
hand town id Hie gold Hint was poured
on to (he table for blm to lake up.
The seed, unin who was (be cause of
all this good fortune hnd ceased to
bet, being apparently Intent upon tbe
person he bad befriended. But Ids
features, too, were concealed, the principal one, his eyes, being covered by
the colored glasses.
The exclamations oC tho onlookers
wero succeeded hy another hush.
Could It bo possible that the wlnnci
would leave whnt now amouuted to
nearly $2,000 of our money where It
was, taking the chances again ot losing all or winning live times the

a soft voice coming from the womnn
standing behind the ob.lcct of all tbls
"Carl, hadn't yon better take up
aomo of your winnings?"
There was no rcply-nt least none

rattled again.
For Hie third time the live to ono
What was before mingled exclamations was now a hubbub. The heap
of coins would be too large for the
spot covered, and and 0 tl was laid
on the pile. The seedy man sat stolidly
looking at the mau for whom be hud
rendered possible these winnings, but
be mado i_f protest agalust tempting
fate further.
"Oh, Carl!" cried the woman behind
tho gambler. "Dou'tl Please don't
risk It all agnln."
But the appeal wns disregarded.
The spinner of the wheel waited a few
moments, but, receiving no sign that
the money on the live to one-spot
would be changed, twirled It, and
again Hie croupier announced that the
bank bad lost.
Something like $r_,000 had now accrued to tbo credit of Ibo winner. The
woman behind bim put ber arms nbout
his neck, wltb her face close to bis. It
was noticed tbat she shuddered. The
aeetly man opposite aroso with his
eyes glued to the couple before blm.
Then tho woman gave a shriek.
Some one pulled tho gambler'- bat
off. A burst of horror followed the uncovering of a face thut bore the pallor
of death, eyes that were Used in a va-.

of attendants, while the dead gambler
was carried out by another. Theso two
objects of Interest having been removed, flio crowd looked about for the
mau with the threadbare clothes who
bad furnished the original stake.- -
He had disappeared.
While the excitement, tho horror,
was at its height he was leaving the
gambling hull nnd, passing out of tho
gardens lu which the building stood,

Stopping before a door in the rear of
the building the "fare" turned him
over to a lackey for his pay and hurried upstairs. Entering one of the
apartments, he summoned attendants,
who divested him of bis clothes and
banded him others.
"Send for the Count de ���" he said.
Tbe Count de ��� was the prime
minister. In half an hour he appeared
at the palace and was ushered Into au

A Compromise
The vicar of Leeds, Eng.. Dr. Dick
ersteth, tells of a clergyman who rang
him up on the telephone to ask if
he would conser to his taking a marriage service in which the word
"obey" wis left out. He replied that
he waa not the bishop, but was tolerably certain that tlie bishop would
not allow him to omit the word.
"But who is the lady going to
marry?" he inquired.
The an- cr was, "She is going to
marry a doctor."
He then asked, "Would she mind
if you put in the word consult' Instead?"

Football Is an aui lenl pastime, *��ys
au exchange, The old Teutons _im
credited with founding the game by
playing with the bleached skulls of
their enemies. Preliminary practice
was lirst beard of in Chester, Lug-,
where the old English had sufflelei ily
brutallsed the game lo giic rise to
many adverse criticisms, fragments uf
which have survived to the present
day.      '
Legend lias it lhat in 962, during
the Danish Invasion of England, a
good man or Chester captured a Dane,
beheaded him and knocked his bend
out into Iho Street to furnish sport
for the "fellows.'' The game of kicking lhe head around the city streets
and even outside the walli Of ihe anient Roman-built city gn w in favor.
The exercise wus Indulged In whenever a Chester sport could annex a
Danish head. But eventually Ihe supply ut Danish heads gave out. But
the sport bad secured a stronghold on
(he exercise-loving Anglo-Saxons and
il "bullo of leather called u footballs" was substituted.
The game developed Into a rough-
and-tumble scrimmage, nnd the ball
itself would often He forgotten for
hours while the excited players chased one another through alleys uud
lanes and even iuto the houses oT the
more respectable citizens as results of
arguments over ihe rules, it seems
that even before William the Conqueror invaded England the interpretation of the football rules was a
much-mooted matter. Sconces were
crack'd, hones were broken und lives
were lost. Yet tho g: me spread in
favor, and, jumping over the intervening centuries, is still spreading.
The modern school of football critics, just at present a subdued mlu-
factlon expressed by ihe public, and
the press, is nol a whit more bitter
than rhillp Sttibbs. a literary Briton,
who way back in 1583 raked football
ot tbat day up and down, over and
across in the following fashion: ���
As concerning foolballe, I protest
unto vou it may rather be culled a
friendlie kind of a light than a play
or recreation, a bloody and murlher-
Ing practice than a l'elowy sport ur
pastice. l'or doth uot everyone lie in
wait for his adversary, seeking lo
overthrow him and plcke blm on tbe
nose, though It be on hard stones, or
ditch or dale, or valley or hill, so be
has him down, and he lhat can serve
the most of this fashion is counted
the only fellow, and who but he. Su
that hy this means their necks ure
broken, sometimes their backs, sometimes their arms, sometimes llieir
noses gush out. with blood, sometimes
their eyes start out; for they buve
the sleights to mix one between two,
to ilush him against the heart with
their elbows, to butt him under the
short ribs with their gripped lists, and
with their knees to catch him ou lhe
hip and plcke htm on his neck with
a hundred murtbering devices."
<_>oil Selling Label.
Much amusement was caused at
Master ton, New South Wales, at (he
way in which a Chinese named Ab
Kong overreached himself In his
greed. Ab Kong was watching the
removal from a lorry of a consignment of miscellaneous articles destined for au auction room, when, pointing to a wooden case which was being carried Inside, he Inquired, in un
excited loue, "How uiuchee?"
"I sell him to-morrow," replied the
"No time- to-uioller," answer Ah
Kong. "Me buy now," and he secured
the case for sixteen pounds.
In half au hour the Celestial returned. For a time he waa unable to
speak for agitation. Tbe outcome was
ludicrous. It appears that the case
bore an inscription in Chinese stating
that it. contained a false bottom concealing a hundred pounds' worth of
opium. When Ah Pong opened the
case he found another label at Ihe
bittom, which read: "Better luck
next time."

It is assumed that the bird built its

of these are capable of correction or
cure. Dr. Cantlle, the well-knowm
authority on child life, has promptly
'aken up the suggestion. He Inform*
the public that the direct cause of
very many of lhe Imperfections of
childhood and youth Is Improper
clothing. Babies are adequately protected in this respect, and as a result
"tbey are perfect reproductions la

' It ls when the little boy Is deprived of bis swaddling clothes and It
"breeched" that the deterioration begins, and this is all due to the fact
'hat the garments ln which he is by
custom and fashion habited do not
provide sufficient warmth and protection to that part of tho body which
most needs theso things. And of all
garments In which we array our

Death of Robert Graham
There passed away at St. Joseph
hospital, Como_, an old pioneer of
the Comox Valley in the person of
Mr. Robert Graham, who came to
the Comox District about 35 years

the Courteuay hotel, and in partnership with Mr. Jos. McPhee built
the Government road between Cumberland and Courtenay, afterwards
he had the contract for clearing
the townsite of Cumberland.
After the boom, business became
bad and he got into financial difficulties, and lost the hotel, afterwards going to Denman Island,
where he engaged in the logging
business. He had been ill for the
past two or three years, aud his
death was not unexpected. He

as it was told to him at the club in

His bathroom was instantaneously demolished, and before he could
scramble out of his tub he found
himself sailing over the city ou the

always a man of quick resources
aud ready expediency. That's why
no doubt, the cyclone picked him
out of the crowd. Anyhow, he
never ouce lost his presence of

appearance, but he seized i hold of
the "hot and cold" taps with both
hands and started steering his craft.
