:HeaIthy Mothers and Children Make Happy Homes

In life. It is the fruition of her dearest

In many homes once childless there are

Lydia E.Pinkham'sVegetable Compound
���This is evidenced by the following letters
which are genuine and truthful:

for the benefit I received by taking your
��famous medicine,

Vegetable Compound. Before my
j baby was born I was
so ill I could not

any distance. 1 had
to lie down nearly
all the time. After
I took your medicine
I felt like a new woman. I could work
from morning till night and wbb happy
and well. I certainly think it relieves
pain at childbirth and recommend it to
evcrywomanwhoispregnant. You may
use this testimonial if you like. It may
help some other woman. "-Mrs. Frank
.Corbm, 132 Adelaide St, London, Ont.
Brooklyn, N.Y.-"I was ailing all tha
time and did not know what the matter
was. I wanted a baby but my health
would not permit it I was nervous, my
aide ached and I wbb all run down. I

Compound was good and took the medicine. I have now a beautiful baby and
your Compound has helped me in every

Not to be Caught
A distant relative had taken up his
quarters with a newly-married couple
who had received him with every
mark or consideration. But when,
after a week's stay in their house ihe
guest began to make himself more
and more at home the couple delib'r-
ated on the best, means of getting rid
of the hanger-on and Intruder without offend!ni; blm.
I tell you what, said Ihe husband,
to-morrow at dinner I will grumble
about the soup, saying It is over-salted; you will then flare up, and when
the dispute Is at Its height we will appeal to the decision of our relative.
IT he takes yonr part I will turn him
out of doors, nnd if he sides with me
you will do the same.
The plan was acted upon, and in
the midst of the quarrel the husband
and wife called upon their guest to
declare which of them was iu the
right.     But the latter coolly replied:
You see, my dears, during tin*

I Recently a Chicago woman who
spoke out of her own experience,
said she never, wants to hear anything more pertaining to a fast and
gay life. With true pathos she
said: "After all there is very little
of the gay about it." In this remark she undoubtedly told the truth
and expressed the sentiment of
others who have traversed the. same
path but not everyone is so honest
about it as she has been. Wheu
men and wonen live in defiance of
what experience and conscience
prove to be right they are bound
ultimately to pay the penalty, well
ordered institutions, like that of
the family, cannot be ignored or
encroached upon without loss and
disappointment, and all gayety enjoyed at the expense of good morals
must end iu dissatisfaction.
A Learned Euorpeau   scientist
says that man has made no appre
ciable advance in   the last 7,000
years, a'statement that goes to show
that learing and wisdom do not always go together, and that learing
may be one-sided.   No one can read
the history of the human race without reaching the conclusion that
not alone in arts and science, but
also in social, political, and moral
conditions man has steadily advanced.   The advance may have been
disappointingly slow at times, still
there has been advance.   Confining
one's observation to one thing���
that of war���it must strike every
observer that while war, to use the
expression of a famous general, is
"Hell," yet in recent years war is
conducted with far greater humanity   than   once   prevailed.     The
wounded receive b.tter attention,
indiscriminate slaughter is no longer indulged in, prisoners are treated
humanely the honor of the captive
women is respected and, which is
no less striking, wars are shorter
in duration.
We would like to hear from our

How much longer are the people
of Comox district going to put up
with the excuse for boat service
that the present steamers give us?
No matter where freight is shipped
from, it is held up at Vancouver,

understrapper to   the effect   that
your goods are there and will be
held until you send so much money
to release them.   And in addition
to exceedingly high railway charges
have to pay wharfage and an additional charge for the boat service.

The Late A. B. Crawford
The funeral of  the lats   A.   B.
Crawford took place from the family residence,   Riverside Farm,  on
Friday, April 4th, and was largely
attended by the residents   of  the
valley.    The services at the house
and church were conducted by Rev.
Thos. Menzies.   The ForeJters and
Orangemen, of which orders he was
a member, performed the last rites
at the grave of their departed brother,   The pallbearers were J. McPhee, J  B. Holmes, T. Beckensall
J. Grieves, J. Wilmshurst  and W.
Willard, all old friends of deceased.
Mr. Crawford was the son of the
late Samuel Crawford, who in 1870
settled on the homestead in the Comox valley, and died just 3 years
less 4 days before his son.   He first
saw the light of day in New Brunswick on May 3, 1854.   He came to
this country with his parents when
about 16 years of age via the Panama isthmus,  and with little help
cleared the whole of the farm of
240 acres upon which they settled.
Mr. Crawford was twice married
In November 1879 he married Miss
Lucinda Little.     They had nine
children, three of whom are dead :
Albert Byron died at  age of  28,
Susan Daisy aged 9,   and  Huellen
in infancy.   The six  living are :
Elizabeth  Blanche Andrews, with
three children 2 daughters and one
son,   living  at   Hoquiam, Wash.;
Annie Dora Qartwright, Vancouver
one child ; Dr. John Wesley Crawford of Ottawa, Ethel Marian McKay of Seattle, one child,  Lillie
Bertha Linn of California,  Alice
Maud Kanffer of Seattle.
In 1900 he married Miss Bertha
Giva Carto, daughter of the Jate
Samuel   Carto of   Comox,   three
children were born of this union,
Samuel Henry Crawford, Andrew
Byron Crawford,   Annie IBertha
Crawford,  all living at home.   He
also leaves one sister, Sarah  Mc-
Farland, who   lives at Sandwick.
About three   years ago he built a
warehouse  on  the   banks  of the
Courtenay, and embarked   in the
feed business  iu   addition  to  his
I farming operations," and which has
(developed into large   proportions.

them. At the time of his death he
had about 35 excellent animals of
various ages.
Just a few weeks ago he went to
Vancouver and purchased a fine
little steamer, for hauling freight
from the Comox wharf, which was
the apple of his eye, and with
which he intended having much
pleasure this summer.
Mr. Crawford was a Conservative in politics, and in former
years took a verv active interest in
political affairs, being one of the
oldest members of the association
in the valley.

Facts Concerning Rural Mail
It might interest our readers to
know that, the Post Office Department has recently extended the
convenience of the Rural Mail Delivery by which the patrons ou the
various routes may purchase Postage Stamps, Postal Notes, and
Money Orders from the Rural Mail
Couriers who are supplied with the
necessary forms for taking applications of money orders and purchase
of postal notes from the distributing
office on their respective routes.
It will not be necessary for the
courier to make a personal visit to
the patrons as these forms may be
left in the Rural Mail Box and the
matter will be carefully attended to
by. the courier.
As regards money orders and
postal notes the Department ��� has
provided forms of application for
same iu bundles of ten, and a
bundle is placed in their box io that
the patron may fill it out and thus
simplify the courier's work who
will then, only have to sign the
receipt for money received by him,
and on reachiug the distributing
office will purchase the money order
and place it in the patron's box on
the next trip or if preferred by the
patron there will be no objection to
give the courier the open letter in
which the money order or postal
note may be placed and forward
same to the addressee at once.
The   patrons may also register
There are none who are familiar
with the far west, here, but admires iu some way or another the
oldtimer. It is hard for us newcomers to realize what they were
up against in the old day's. Tlie
Pioneers, men and women alike,
were made of though fibre. We
tan only picture them in imagination lauding here, in what was at
that lime to all appearances a neck
in the woods, away olf behii d
God's back. Wc see this man.
with axe, saw and powder, striving to clear a few feet to erect a
covering from the elements. We
see this small space of ground
he has cleared being plowed by the
nose of a broad saw, before the introduction of the steel nosed del ver.
We see the woman doing her washing iu a coal oil tin, and hanging
her wash on a line spread between
two stumps, while the children
played tag round the charred logs.
The years rolled by and the hair
grew thin on the man's head and
whitened and lengthened in his
beard, the woman's eyes sank deep
in her head and furrows came in
the once smooth forehead, the
arms once plump and round grew
thin, and the children grew up and
supported themselves in various*
places. One by one they fall beneath the hand of death, and are
buried far away from the land of
their birth, beneath the whispering
fir and murmuring cedar. The silence of eternity steals over them
as lime goes on. They reach one
by one the noiseless land, there to
remain undisturbed by giant powder, the crash of tailing timber, the
rattle of milk pails, the hums of
creani separators and the lowing of
the cattle. The day of rest, for
which they yearned, has thrown
its mantle over them and tucked
them in snug and tight. Should
these be beyond a promised land I
trust that the Great Owner thereof
will give them a title without reservations to a large, cleared, aud
well stocked homestead, close to
Himself, This is the heart telt
wish of one who has learned to
love the Old-timer,

I had a friend,

My friend since then.
Another friend,
He borrowed five,
I doubt if he
Is still alive.
For one more friend
I signed a note;
He disappeared���

I'm now convinced
That, in the end,
A feller is

Wilson Reads From Psalms
When Woodrow Wilson took the
oath of office he opened the Bible
at random and his lips brushed the
following verses of the 119th Psalm:
"And take not the word of truth
utterly out of my mouth, for I
hoped in thy judgments. So shall
I keep thy law continually forever
and ever. And I Y.'ill walk at liberty, for I seek thy precepts. I
will speak of thy testimonials also
before kings and I will not be
ashamed. And I will delight myself in thy commandments, which I
love. My hands also will I lift up
unto thy commandments, which I
love, and I will meditate in thy
mately prescribed was plenty of
pure food, sunlight, fresh air and
sleeping outdoors all of the time,
All Needed Vacation
Said Jones to the deacon: "I see
you are going to give your minister
a three months vacation."
'We are," said the deacon to
"Isn't that a long time?''
"Maybee. But we need a re��t,
just as much as the preacher does."
Discovered Rare Disease
During the eighteenth century
Dr. Percival Pott of London, who
was one of the best known physicians in that period, discovered the
disease of the spine which he called
"vertebral caries," or decay of the
backbone.     The   treatment ulti-
"Swat The Fly"
It has now been discovered that
"Swat the fly" was a rather lacking expression and it is to be supplanted by "Starve the fly," which
is more to the purpose and, if followed up, will result in a more
general extinction. It is just
about time now to begin this process. It can be done by cleanliness, by screening, by sanitation,
by persistent work. It is .a. matter
of the greatest importance, for it
affects the lives aud health of
thousands of human beings.

The team consists of eight,
Four of them are able brutes
And the rest of them are skates
Johnston slings the rigging,
And Peter barks the logs,

And Jabez drives the dogs.
Now Victor he's a bucker,

Some places he needs plenty skids
Some places very few,
To prevent the miring of the team

With a crooked saw he works

"Why don't you learn to play euchre, '

"Why, 1 know how to play," replied
Jli'K. Bowser
'Tbat Is. yon think you do."
"But I'm sure I do. I believe I'm ���
pretty fair player."
"Humph! Suppose you get tbe curds
Out." I
������All right."
There had been several games of
���ucbre played In the Bowser family,
��� nd In each and every instance there
bud been a row, caused by Mr. Bow-1
ier's queer understanding of the rules !
ot the game. Ou the last occasion Mrs.
Howser had said that she would never
play cards with him again, and therefore he wns considerably surprised at
ber present willingness. She got out
the table nud curds, and as Mr. Bowser
looked more closely at ber be didn't
feel easy In his mind.
According to Hoyle.
"In this game going to be according
to Hoyle?" he asked as the cards were
"lust as you say," she replied.
"Well, we'll .nuke it Floyle. nnd nel-1
ther of ns will do nny kicking.  In the
bent of good nature I warn you that 1
���hall win at least live games out of six.
JThd are too sensible to get mad over It '
iAs I'm the better player, we'll start off j
by giving you the lirst deal."
"Thank yon. but we nre to go by I
Boyle." she laughed.  "We will cut for
tlie deal."
"I see. Don't want any favors, eh?
Well, the deal Is yours. Perhaps you'll
get one trick of the first game. It's
jronr lead."
"Aa I deal, lfs your lend."
"80. Mrs. Bowser, you've begun al-
ready." he exclaimed as he beld his
cards suspended. "It's a mighty queer
thing tbat we can't bave a game of
cards withont your getting mad over
"Stop right Jhere!" said Mrs. Bowser
���>' Hhe laid down her curds. "It Is your
Br��t lead, according to Uoyle or anybody else. If yon don't know that, then
you don't know now to play!"
"I don't eh? Well, let It go. I'll
five you nil the advantage. Clubs are
trumps, and you play to that ace of
"I take It with a trump."
"You do?  You bave a diamond and
must follow suit   Don't attempt any I
trickery here, Mrs. Bowser!"
"I bave no suit. Play to that trump." j
"Are   you    leading   trumps?"    he,

"To you. sir."
"And I'm your husband?"
"Yes, sir. Don't shout your lungs

Capt. Tom To the Rescue.
AlexaHer Morrison, tlie sturdy yeoman member of Parliament from
Maedonald, the victor in Uie most
spectacular bye-election in years, has
been the subject ��l much han.ishakins
on tlie part of the Conservative members, and of polite attention by the
Liberal cohorts since his arrival at
the capital. Mr. Morrison held what,
was really an impromptu reception iu
Room 16, niter the opening ceremonies
and tlie burden oi the remarks of
each member was "Well ynu must
have liiul a lively light." Tlie con-
blunt iteration ol a truism apparently
palled on the modest farmer troin
the wheat plains of Macduuald until
anally big L'apt. Tom Wallace of

plume of herou's feathers set with silver spangles.
lie also put on a short cassock of
grny velvet garnished with "little

of silver, ali open between the plates."
Then be "rubbed his face with Greek
wine till he brought a little color Into

upon It a moment and then ejaculated
to the clerk: "Give him $10.    If he Is
as poor as his picture he must be on

Since last going to press, sickness
has laid its paralyzing hand on one
of our number, The victim this
time, of "outrageous fortune" is
the popular flunkey al the Mill
Camp. On Thursday lhe flunkey
Without a inie in the world, was
standing at the sink bathing dishes,
or pearl-diving, as it is more commonly known in culinarv cali-
graphy, when somehow he slipped
on a hit uf pate-de-foie gras, and
lie fell, severly jarring the metatarsal bones of the left foot. Although
suffering the most exquisite torture,
as those who have ever been so unfortunate as to jar their metatarsals
may well know, the brave lad
with indomitable heroism, stuck to
his task; and it was not until the
cook assisted by three loggers was
able to drag him from the kitchen,
that he would consent to lie down.
Two doctors and a bartender were
summoned, and nothing was neglected which science could accomplish to relive the poor fellow from
his awful sufferings.
Towards evening the crisis came,
and the two consulting physicians
and the learned dispeller of blues,
afler remaining in close conclave all
afternoon, issued a bulletin to the
effect that another twenty four
hours would bring the patient's release from the "vale of tears." Iu
fact the more pessimistic of the two
disiples of Qjsculapius, with an eye
to the main chance, had already
opened negotiations with the patient
for the use of his corpse.
Towards morning, however, the
flunky, contrary to the expectations
of the medicos, took a decided turn
for the better.
This improvement was strikingly
apparent even to the lay observer
from the fact that the patient was
getting confused as to which foot
was hurt, there being no abrasion
of the cuticule, or other epidermous
symptoms of an abnormal character.
On Friday noon, the three specialists pronounced the case cured, and
adjourned to the Riverside Hotel
to recuperate after their exhausting
but victorious twenty four hours
struggle with the dread spectre who
rides the ta hite horse.
The friends of the patient, who is
now happily recovered, are congratulating themselves upon being
providentially spared the harrowing
stenos of the proverbical Atheist's
