Finds Help in Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable
Cape Wolfe, Canada.���" Last March I
was a complete wreck. I had given up
all luipe of getting better or living any
length of time, as I was such a sufferer
from female troubles. But I took Lydia
E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound, and
today 1 am in good health and have a
pair of twin boys two months old and
growing finely. I surprised doctors and
neighbors for they all know what a
wreck 1 was.
"Now I am healthy, happy and hearty,
and owe it all to Lydia E, Pinkham'a
remedies'. You may publish this letter
if you like. I think if more women
used your remedies they would have
better health. "���Mrs. J. T. Cook, Lot
No. 7, Cape Wolfe, P.K.I., Canada.
Because your case is a difficult one, and
doctors having done you no good, do not
eontinue to sutler without giving Lydia
E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound a
trial. It surely has remedied many
eases of female ills, such as inflammation, ulceration, displacements, tumors,
irregularities, periodic pains, backache,
and it may be exactly what you need.
The Pinkham record is a proud and
peerless one. It is
a record of constant
victory over the ob-
stinatoillsof women
���ills that deal out
despair. It is an established fact that
Lydia E. Pinkham's
has restored health
to thousands of such suffering women,
Why don't you try it if you need such a
medicine ?
Not a Rair Restorer
One of ilie Atlantic City's life
guards was discussing his profession.
Funny things happen lo us guards
sometimes, said he. A society belle
from Spruce street went into the
waler wearing one of those fashionable transformations, or wigs. A big
wave went over her and when she
came up the transformation was floating out to sen. She turned and ran
lo Tim.
Oh, save my hair! she yelled. Save
my hair.
Pardon me, lady, snys Tim. I'm
a life saver, not a hair restorer.

is such sudden changes of weather lhat
start the pangs and tortures of rheumatism, lumbago and sciatica going.
But M must l"' borne in mind that although weather conditions start the
pains, the trouble is rooted in tho

Uie blood. All tho liniments and lotions in the world can'l cur ��� rheumatism, Rubbing may seem to ease the
pnln while you are rubbing, but there
its value ends. Only by treating the
disease through the blood can you cure
rheumatism. That is why Dr. Williams' Pink Pills have cured so many
thousands of cases of ibis trouble. The
new, r_h blood these pills actually
make drives out the poisonous acid
and rheumatism, lumbago and kindred
trouble-* are banished. Among the
many sufferers from rheumatism
cured by this method is Mr. ft. J. Sinclair, of Gosen, N.S., who says:
"About two years ago I was laid up
with rheumatism. Fo:' two months I
could not walk and had to stay in an
invalid's chair. My feet were badly
swollen and my anus seemed to be
paralyzed, i had been using doctor's
medicine for a long time hut it did
not seem to help me, and the doctor
finally told me that the only thing that
would cure me would be a change of
climate. At this lime I decided to
give Dr. Williams' l'ink Pills a trial
and goi a supply. After 1 had taken
them for a while I found they wero
helping me, and I got a further supply, and they completely cured me,
and I have not been sic'.; cue day
since. I strongly recommend Dr,
Williams' Pink Pills for this trouble."
If you suffer from rheumatism, or
any other disease of lh> blood or
nerves, begin io cure yourself today
with Dr, Williams' Pink Pills, which
under a fair trial will do for you

the Artist Squared Accounts.
In Mrs. Alec Twcedlc's "Thirteen
Years of a Busy Woman's Llfo" sho
tells this story of Whistler, which she
beard at first baud:
"Tho famous peacock room at
PriiK'c's Cn' i wns a wonderful scheme
of decoration, peacock's eyes ou a gold
ground being its principal motif. About
the year isstl the lite Mr. l.cyluiiil. a
wealthy shipowner nud patron ot the
arts. Imd taken thin grand new mansion nud asked Whistler to decorate
a room. Jimmy, p��� _r and out at elbows as usual. Jumped nt tho Idea,
but no terms wero fixed upon. Tho
work began. It was a prodigious undertaking, and tho extraordinary aud
erratic little man gave It his whole
"Ilelng nt I'rlnce's Gate all day and
-living tlio run of Lcyland's bonso,
Whistler hnd n hospitnble way of Inciting his f-'ends to eoiue and see the
room an. then bo would ask tbem to
tdop to luncheon. This sort of thing,
which began occasionally, ended In
being an almost daily o lurrence, nnd
Simmy used to bold a little levoo every
morning, when three, four or live people remained to lunchon. This became
too niu '��� for Mr. Loylnnd, and Ills plan
for putting an end to the campaign
vas a somewhat ingenious one.
"Jimmy or-> day entertained four
friends. The meal not being announced, he rang tbo bell fo. tho butler.
'When Is lunch i be asked.
" 'I have no orders for lunch,' replied
the mini, with a stately air.
" 'Oil, no, of course,' replied Jimmy,
not ln the least disconcerted. 'We'll
go along to such and such a hotel.
Stupid of mo to forget it'
"But it was enough, and, though ha
pretended uot to mind and with that
dellgh .ul Impudence for which ho waa
famous turned It off, ha uevcr forgave
the Incident and determined to pay
Leyland out. Krom that day be took
bis o _ji lunch in a little paper parcel
and sat nnd devoured It when so inclined. On the next occasion Leyland
came ln to admiro tho peacock decora;
tlons about tbo usual luncheon hour.
"'You will bave some lunch, won't
you!' Whistler said. Leyland looked
"Up Jumped Jimmy, fetched bis bag
end proceeded to untie his parcels, saying: 'It's all right, old cbap; bave no
anxiety. It ls my luncb, not yours,
and you aro heartily welcome to It'
"When tho work wns accomplished
whlcb had taken so long Leyland wished to pay tbe bill and asked the artist
what was bis figure. '1 have worked
a whole year and more,' Whistler said.
1 consider my services aro worth ��2,-
000 a year, therefor tho flguro is ��2.-
BOO, from which yon can deduct the
few hundreds you have given me on
"Leyland was horrified. 'Preposterous,' be said, 'perfectly prcposter usl'
"Jimmy looked at hlm<and drew him-
aelf op to bis full height, which was
not great '1 beg, Mr. Leyland. that
you will accept as a gift the entire
work of my llfo for the last year and a
quarter.   I can compromise uothlng.
"Once again Whistler scored and
I_yland paid. Whistler's thanks to his
patron afterward took tho form ot
painting a life size portrait of htm ns
a devil wltb horns and hoofs."
Sir B. J. Toyntcr, P. It. A., snys the
New York Sun, told lu au Interview
how when he wus studying in Paris
for threo or Ibur years there was one
Jlttle artistic group called "Trilby."
ile says:
"My companions were Whistle., Du
_ Hurler, Val Prlusep, Lain mt, Thomas aud Armstrong. Of course Du
Uaiirlcr altered tbo thing a good deal,
but his picture of studio llfo was ln
tbe main a truthful representation of
our life nt that time. Trilby herself. 1
believe, was a pure product of the author's brain.
"ln many ways the most remarkable
man among us was Wblstler. If he
had only had energy there is no know
Ing to what height he might have
soared, but he was incorrigibly lazy

to pretend, Just for fun, thnt his un

His  Grace  of   Argyll  Has llnd  Had
Luck With His Show.
Several months ago, the Duke of
Argyll, who Is a former Governor-
General ot Canada, completed Iho
libretto of a new opera founded on
the life of an ancient Celtic king of
Ireland, whose period was contemporary with tbe Carthage ot Queen Dido.
The music was to he composed hy

and the opera produced by Oscar

The duke long ago completed his
share In the opera, which (ells of an
event In the life of u Celtic monarch
and a Princess Omnia, who nourished
In Ireland about the time when the
Phoenicians traded to those shores.
Those early traders had discovered
the secret of glass manufacture, and
the crystal baubles which they carried
with them in large quantities for
trading purposes roused the cupidity
of the wild Irishmen of those days.
The bartering leads up to a dispute,
and eventually the monarch is carried off to Carthage, and this famous
city being the scene of the next act

The libretto was sent to Mr. Drysdale to compose the music, because
the duke was attracted by the reputation he had gained as a musician and
also because ho was a descendant of
the famous Sir Thomas Learmont, the
Border poet, and was steeped ln the
ancient lore ot those days on which,
the story of the opera was based.
The history of this opera itself,
however, ts a siibject^full enough of
tragedy to form the basis of a story
ln itself, for Mr. Drys.lale died on the
completion of the music, and, as ls
well known, Mr. Hammcrsteln's connection with opera iu London was
dramatically severed.
The Duke of Argyll seen nothing et
his opera since, a fact lhat he lakes
with complacence, as it is lu the safe
hands of Miss Drysdale in Edinburgh,
the siBter of the composer, who now
owns his effects, including the orera.
The duke would like to see the opera
produced, and it appeal's Mi3s Drysdale ls equally anxious and willing to
negotiate with anyone in a position
to produce tbe opera properly, and
has unbounded faith in the excellence
of her late brother's work.
It will be a pity If so much good
work should go for nothing, especially as there Is a constant cry of the
paucity of English opera and of the
want of national talent in this branch
of art. Those who have heard the
music are much Impressed by its
tunefulness as well as by its power
and passion, and it may be taken
that in this section of Britain's history the Duke of Argyll, known to all
true Gaels as the MacCailean Mhor,
is an authority who can be depended
on to create the correct historical
A Huge Punch-Bowl.
A correspondent of Country Life
sends some particulars about an extraordinary punch brew which took
place on Oct. 25, 1694.
Tho biggest brew on record was
made at the house of the lit. Hon.
Edward Itussell, commander-in-chief
of His Majesty's Forces in the Mediterranean. A garden fountain, placed whore four walks met, was used
as a bowl, and In It the following In-
gradients were poured: ���
Four hogsheads of brandy, 25,000
lemons, twenty gallons of lime-juice,
1,300 cwt. of while Lisbon sugar, r,
pounds of grated nutmegs, H00 toasted biscuits, and ono pipe ot dry
mountain Malaga. Here, indeed, was
a puneh-bowl worthy of tbe heroes of
tho seventeenth century. A boat was
specially built so that a hoy might
row about In It. and fill the cups of
the assembled guests, which, according to our authority, probably numbered moro than 6,000 men.
Dominion surveyors who have been
engaged during the past season making an investigation of the Upper Co
lumbla river to determine the feasibility of opening a shipping route to
tide water, are compiling their findings to make a report to the Government. Canada is interested in opening an economical all water rout�� at
an outlet to the great wheat crop, and
to open a market for tbe great coal
deposits and to compete for the oil
trade of tbe northwest when the Industry reaches a producing basis.
Ship Without Under Water Propellers

Some   Stories  of  Ireland's   Retiring
Lord Chief Justice.
So far from resenting the description of "Peter the Packer,'' bestowed
upon hlni by the Nationalists, on ac-
fount of the manner In which he resolutely set aside jurors notoriously in
Sympathy with defendants in cases
which came before him, when Mr.
Balfour was Irish Secretary and the
Coercion Act was in force, Lord
O'Brien, who lias Just tendered bis
resignation as Lord Chief Justice of
Ireland, bas, on more than one occasion, remarked that the title was
quite justified.
'I certainly eliminated from lhe i
jury-box," he has said, "thoso who
were prejudiced. I did BO Without
apology, and would do I again if in
lhe same position, 1 ought lo have
linen called 'Tlie Great l'npacUer'."
It has been truly said that Lord
O'Brien lias liad some bitter political
opponents, but not a single enemy.
lie Is a typical Irishman ��� genial,
kind-hearted and witty, with a brogue
of   exceptional   strength,   lie   was
_ueen Victoria's guest on several occasions during Her Majesty's last
vIbII to Ireland, and ho greatly amused tbe Queen on one occasion by describing bow, when traveling abroad
before his elevation, he inscribed
himself in the books of the Swiss hotels as Iter Britannic Majesty's First,
.erjoant-at-Law. Although tho title
was strictly correct, Is pompous nature threw lhe officials ot Switzerland into consternation, and tbey bad
much to do to decide whether diplomatic courtesies were not due to this
high imd mighty personage.
A'story which Lord O'Brien is rather fond of telling agaln_ himself relates to an occasion when he hired a
hackney-car ai Sligo for a drive after
a weary day in court. He, mounted
the car beside tbe driver, and the
"jarvey," believing lhe Attorney-1;cu-
cral, lis Lord O'Brien then was, to
be Inside the vehicle, remarked,
"That's a hard man Inside."
"Yes," said Lord O'Brien, "I believe he is a man with an Indifferent
At the end of the drive the Attorney-General banded the "jarvey" a
gold coin, and the surprised and delighted man, looking lirst at ihe coin
and then at the Attorney-General,
whom he then recognized, said:���
"Well, afthc.r all, the dlvil isn't as
black as he's painted."
Hidden Money.
Among the eccentricities of thfc
rlch, the passion tor always possessing enormous sums of ready cash Is
surely one of the most extraordinary.
A former Lord Dysart one day asked
a companion-nurse to go to town and
get a check cashed for him at the
Bank of England. When she was
ready to start the old peer sat down
and wrote out a check for $500,000,
and told her lo be sure and see that
she got one 'note for the whole
The check was duly presented, and
he bank, having satisfied themselves
ia to the nurse's authority for mak-
ng such.a request, suggested that a
���lerk should accompany her and hand
he $500,000 note, In person to his
ordohip. After having done so the
���lerk told tho peer tbat only three
Mich notes were in existence. "One,"
he said, "wc have at the bank, another I have just handed to your
'ordship, and the third, which some
'line ago disappeared from circulation, we have never been able to
iracc." "Perhaps 1 can help you,"
iald Lord Dysart, and going to a bureau he unlocked a drawer and took
mt the missing $500,000 note, which
had been lying there for years.

Trapping lhe Gossip.
Mrs. Paukhurst was complimented by a reporter one'day on the way
she subdues hecklers.
"We suffragists," raid Mrs. Pnnk-
liurst, good-humoredly, "have wide
experience with hecklers. At one
time they upset, me, but now 1
rather enjoy llieir foolish questions.

Mrs. Pankhurst, smiling, conlln-
���aed: "I can sympathize with the
minister who was greatly disturbed
by a certain set of women in his
congregation who persistently gossiped in a loud tone during service.
"One Sunday morning he executed
a plan which bo bad devised to stop
this annoyance. At, a i.lven signal
the choir stopped abruptly on a certain word in the middle of a hymn.
"Then one of the gossips, unable
to check herself, was heard all over
thn church to say:
" 'I always fry mine in lard.'
" 'As we now know,' announced
the minister, 'that sho always fries
hers ln lard, we will proceed with
the singing.' "
Fears British Decadence.
Sir James Crichtou-Browne, in
speaking recently at tho annual
meeting of the National League for
Physical Education and Improvement in London, urged lhe importance of grappling with "the greatest
catastrophe that could befall the
world���the decadence and deterioration of the British race."
He asserted that in the large public
schools of Britain to-day It would be
impossible to tin.', ten absolutely
sound children. From the reports ol
medical officers it seemed as it almost every child liad some flaw oi
blemish tbat interfere I wit' his education or must mar more or less his
prospect in life. '_'<;��� might look in

Green Sunsets In England.
Green sunsets seen by the Hug-
slan explorers in the newly discovered polar land have been matched
in England. Throughout November
and December of 1_8_ the intensity
and afterglows wero of wonderful
Intensity and varied colors. At
Chelsea especially tho sun went
down over the Thames and a blaze
of unearthly beauty ranging from
deepest red to green, as may be seen
in a series of water color sketches
made at tho time and now preserved
In the Chelsea free library. Sir Norman Lockyer and other astronomers
attributed these winter sunsets to
the volcanic dust projected by the
great eruption of Krakatoa, tn Java,
In the previous August.
James Ramsey MacDonald, Socialist M.P. in the British House of Com-
lions, has added a ge:n to the collection of mixed metaphors for which
lolltlcal orators are famous. Referring to the Syndicalists, Mr. MacDon-
ild said:
"No sooner do they get themselves
Into a hole than they put down a
���tring so that we may pull them out
_ it. The Delilah ot Syndicalism hat
indeavored to cut the locks of trade
unionism, so that it becomes a mere
piece ot putty ln the hands of thf
political authorities."
This ls declared to be the most
magnificent nixing of metaphors by
an English public man since John
Burns Inveighed against the London
County Council for "taking a white
elenhant under its wing."

Editor Review.
Dear Sir:���I am enclosing you
an editorial clippiug from the Loudon Globe, of the (ith inst., which
should be pleasant reading for the
advocates of Temperance Reform,
and if you will insert iu vour next
issue I shall be glad. It i.s only on
these Hups that a permanent improvement can be secured.
W. Idiens.
We rejoice that the Grey Trust, otherwise the   Peoples   Refreshment   House
Association,   Limited,  is able to show
better results than ever.   This admirable
scheme, which began   with  one  public
house in 1897,   now  covers   over  three
hundred, and its'assets after paying over
five per cent,   are  nearly  oiie  hundred
and twenty thousand  pounds.   But that
is a small matter beside the  good  it  is
doing.    With tea and coffee -decent tea
and coffee���supplied at the price uf  the
cheapest beer, and with  excellent   soup
at twopence a bowl,   the  working man
customer shows himself ready enough to
patronize  these  beverages  in  place of
alcoholic drinks.   There  is  no  sort of
compulsion.    He can have beerorspirits
if       he      wants      them,      but      the
manager    makes    no    profit   on    the
sale of these, whereas he gets a very tidy
little   commission   on  everything else.
That is a provision that works just as it
was expected to work,  and   there  is a
good deal more tea and soup  than  beer
or whisky sold in the Grey  tap  rooms.
Every house  has a well  furnished  tea
room and nearly every   one   has   a   tea
garden in  where  customers   can  enjoy
themselves rationally in the company of
their wives and children.   This is the
true line of temperance reform.    Offer a
man something better than the privilege
of getting fuddled, and nine times out ol
ten he will gladly take it.

Local Option in New Zealand
Editor Review.
Dear Sir.���For ui.itiv years there has
I been in New Zealand a strung temperance sentiment. Present indications are
that this dominion will soon have national prohibition. The present Local Option law requires a three-fifths vote in
order to carry.
In the town of Mastertou the bar-rooms
were closed in 1910. As to the results,
Mr. J. Bridges, in tlie New Zealand
"Vanguard," makes this statement:���-
,,Drunkenness has decreased so much
that we now rarely see a person under
the influence of liquor, while the sight
a lot of lounging spongers watching for
a stray chance to get a drink is quite
gone. Had language is now conspicuous
by its absence, while many other forms
of objectionable conduct which were so
offensive to most persons, have totally
In support of these assertions, I will
here quote our Magistrates' court returns.

Note. It was proved in court that 26
uf those arrested for drunkenness under
no-license were drunk on tlieir arrival
from adjoining electorates.
The alaive hardly bears out the assertion that Local Option is a "farce."
A strong proof of any measure is the
general satisfaction it gives the public.
A remarkable fact about Local Option m
Ontario is that when once adopted it is
hardly ever repealed. Of course the
ultimate goal is Provincial Prohibition.
Ontario is making good use of what she
has until she can get something better.
B. C. is the only province of Canada
which has no prohibitory laws of her
own. Of course the Scott Act applies
to some of our towns and counties, and.
if Courtenay were incorporated, we
might be allowed to vote on it. But I
fear the electoral district as a whole ts
hardly ready for it yet.
I shall be glad, when there is need ol
it, to write over my own name. Meantime it is recorded in the Review Ollice
as a guarantee of good faith; and if any
one disaproves of my statements lie is it
liberty to attack them.

ill of them to rid London of some
of its plague spots. Earl Grey
strove to prevent this, by urging
the council to retain a dozen or so
of the licenses, and tempted the
couucil by offering to place the
surplus profits at its disposal for
public purposes. The improvement committee recommended that
twelve be retained, but the couucil
resisted all inducements, and resolved to continue its policy of
abandoning nil those licenses iu a
district already overstocked with
them, aud but for the wise policy
of the council, Loudon would today
have had a dozen more public
houses, in a congested district.
1 presume the Noble Earl was
anxious to provide places of entertainment and pleasant evenings for
the people. He would have been
at perfect liberty to do so, and no
one would have complained. But
this, it appears, he wouldn't do
unless accompanied with the license
to sell stroug drink.
So what becomes of the honesty
of purpose in the so much talked
of scheme to elevate and enoble
the lives of the people.
There i.s danger wherever strong
drink is present, and it behooves
all right thinking persons to resist
it to the death.

Letter to the Editor
Editor Courtenay Review.
Dear Sir:���There is one principle
that all Total Abstinence Societies
adhere to, it is the prohibition of
the manufacture and sale of intoxicating liquors, as a beverage,
And that principle is taught in
adult and juvenile branches of the
various existing societies. The
aim with the juveniles, is to teach
them that the trade is fraught with
evil, and constitutes a great danger
to the morals and good conduct of
any community, and consequently
restraint must be applied to it, and
to oppose any application made for
licenses in districts hitherto free
from its influence.
Earl Grey has endeavored to
plant public houses in certain districts in England, where previously
none existed. If there is any good
in the scheme at all, it would seem
the proper sphere for him would
be, not the invasion of new districts

seven years, had bronchitis, and the

In lighting diseases of the throat and

A. C. Minty, of pernie, has been
appointed chief of provincial police
in the Hazelton district. At one
time Minty was a famous stage
driver on the Cariboo road. He
made the fastest trip ever made
over that road by stage, some years

round trip between Ashcroft and

On Tuesday morning Wm. A,
.Styles, a nephew of T. Smith, Lake
Trail road, was killed at No. 8
mine shaft. Deceased was a pumping engineer employed at night.
When his mate came to relieve him
he was not about, but that did not
cause him any anxiety. An hour
or two afterwards his dead body
was found ou top of the cage with
the head off. The remains were
taken to Cumberland and a coroner
was sent up from Nanaimo, and
an inquest was held that evening.
No medical examination of the
body was made, and practically no
evidence given. The jury rendered a verdict of "cause unknown."
When the undertakers were preparing the body for shipment, they
found that the right arm and side
of the face was badly scalded.
The coroner was notified, but he
did not think he had power to reopen the inquest. Mr. Smith has
notified the Attorney-general of
the facts and requested an new
inquest. He was apparently scalded, and in rushing for air got
struck   by the cage.   He was a
