Some Good .ots At The Station
The streets through the Station Subdivision are very shortly to be made
these will run from the Cumberland road close to the E, & N. Station
down to the Union Bay road close to the mill pond. Good large lots,
50 x 120 feet can be had at the present time at $250 each, Comer tots
53 x 125 for $300. These prices will be raised shortly. Terms 1-4 cash
the balance in 6, 12 a:id 18 months, interest at 7 per cent, As the
Union Bay road is fast becoming a favorite residential section of
Courtenay. having a cheerful outlook and being the Island Highway,
the town is certain to .build up rapidly in that direction, consequently
there will be a considerable amount of traffic in the streets up to the
station and freight shed from that part of the town, This is a good
opportunity for those who wish to start up in business later on, for
those v_to want a good sized residential property close in, There are
no other lots in Courtenay the size of these that can be bought at anything like the above prices. The plan of the Subdivision can be seen

A Carelessly Treated Cold
is the source of most sickness because drugged
pills, synips and alcoholic mixtures are   '
uncertain and unsafe.
Scott's Emulsion has been relied upon by
physicians for forty years as the safe and sensible
remedy to suppress the cold and build up the
enfeebled forces to avert throat and lung troubles.
Don't tolerate alcoholic substitutes, but insist
on the Genuine Soott'a Emulsion.  One bottle usually

Fred closed the house with his usual
tare.   Then ho went up to bed.
.My bedrooin was over the library,
and Mrs. Uutlcr and Margery Fleming had connecting rooms across the
hall. Fred and Edith slept in the
nursery wing so they would be near
the children. In Uio square upper
hail there wns a big reading table, a
lamp nnd sonic comfortable chairs.
I was awakened by tho pungent
aorid smell of smoke. My clgaretts
hnd dropped from my hand still lighted and as is the way with cigarettes,
determined to burn to the end. In so
doing It had fired my bed, the. rug under tlio bod and pretty nearly tire man
OU the bed. It took somo sham work
to get it all out without rousing the
house. Then I stood amid the wreckage and looked ruefully _ at Edith's
pretty room.
Threo pitchers of water on the bed
had mado it an impossible couch. I
put on a dressing gown and with a
blanket over my arm, I went out to
hunt some sort of place to sleep. I
decided on the davenport In the hall
Just, outside, oiiS as quietly as I could

hand on my face. I started, I think,
mid the hand wns jerked away. 1 am
tot sure; I wns still drowsy. The ball
was dark nnd quiet. When I found
no one I concluded It hnd been only a
vivid dream. Then I noticed a heavy.,
sweetish odor lu tho air. The smell
was almost nauseating. For some
reason or other���association of certain
Dilors wllh certain events���I found myself recalling the time I liad a wisdom tooth taken out and that when
I came around I wns being sat on by
Iho dentist and his assistant, nnd the
hitter bad a black eye. Then suddenly I knew. The sieklky odor was chloroform !
I had the light on in a moment and
was rapping at Margery's door. It
was locked, end I got no answer. A
palo light. sh<-io over the transom,
but everything wns ominously quiet
beyond the door. I went to Mrs. Butler's door next. It was unlocked and

I did not like to force Margery's
confidence, but I believed that the outrage was directly for the purpose of
searching her room, perhaps for papers that hnd been her father's. Mrs.
Butler came around enough by morning to tell a semiconncctod story, in
which sho claimed that two men had
come in from a verandah roof and
tried to chloroform her.
Tho inability of Margery Fleming to
toll who had chloroformed her, and
Mrs. Butler's white face and brooding
eyes made a very respectable mystery
out of tho affair. Only Fred, Edith
and I came down to breakfast that

fell to his lot to marry his .'ootman to
his cook. The footman would persist
throughout the servl _ in putting his

with custom. The reverend gentleman remonstrated In nn undertone:

Hospital For Courtenay
The important matter of a public
hospital for Courtenay and the District is
to be again put into action, and it is to
be hoped that this time it will be brought
to a successful termination, and that we
shall have the pleasure of seeing a hospital erected herein the near future,
A committee of local men waited upon
Mr. Manson, M. P. 1'., upon the occasion
of his last visit to Courtenay, and discussed the question witli him, lie kindly
gave all the iuforuiation required, together with the "Modus operandi," to lie
employed to secure this much needed
building for Courtenay and District.
Tlie residents of this District are all
well aware of the ever pressing and increasing need for a hospital here, not
only for themselves, but the Loggers
and others working in tlie vicinity whose
hazardous occupation renders them exposed to the danger of serious accidents,
many men have been seriously hurt and
have suffered untold agonies, others have
died whilst being transferred from Courtenay to Cumberland Hospital, in spite of
the attention which had beeu rendered
them as soon as medical aid could be
secured. At a critical time after a serious accident, the differeuce between
having Immediate attention in a hospital
and jolting inevitable from a rapid
journey of 6 miles may have meant on
several occasions the difference between
the saving ol a man's life and his death.
What the Government require before
they will tal_ any definite action with
the building of a Public Hospital, is that
a suitable site be secured ami deeded to
them free of all charge, the plans and
estimates should be prepared anil submitted to them for approval, then comes
the question of financing. A hospital
at courtenay with accommodation for
about 30 patients, with men and womens
wards, private wards, and the usi a!
accommodation for the staff etc., would
cost about |10,000. Of this the Government will give 30 per cent, and in some
cases more, and the balance will haqe to
be raised by private subscription.
The Government will also grant a per
diem allowance for each patient in tlie
institution, and it is also tlieir ustom to
make special grants from time to time,
as the need arises.
The institution will have to be undenominational to obtain any grant from
the Government and for that reason it is
to be hoped that all will contribute.
Mr. _, D. Comeroil has been requested
to open up the corn sponilence and subscription list, and also to collect any data
that may be required. No money will
1 e collected, but it is necessary that the
money required should be promised before any definite action will be taken by
the Government, When everything has
been prepared, a public meeting will lie
called, and the full details of the work
done will laid before the meeting for
Our local Praterual Orders with their
Ladies' Auxlliries will be approached,
anil with their co-operation and that of
the business men anil residents of the
town and district the required amount
should be raised.    I'rovi iona' _ 1 ini are

Letter to the Editor
Editor Courtenay Review,
Dear Sir:���In the issue of March
26, Mr. Idiens tells us thnt Public
Houses, under the manageament of
the Public Trust Company Ltd.
has proved to lie a great success in
England, I think there arc quite
a number of persons who will not
agree with the statement. If it is
the object of Earl Grey & Co. to
discountenance the use of alcoholic
liquors, then why provide them?
It seems so strange and contradictory to have an attraction in the
form of Intoxicating liquors, and at
the some time and place, to provide
a counter attraction. It is evident
they recognize the elements of
danger in its use as a beverage, but
it would seem the big profits
prompts the sale.
It was .reported some years ago,
that lhe "Anchor" drink shop, at
Scaynes Hill, Sussex, Eugland,
was tnkea over by a clergyman, and
spoken of as a model public house,
to be managed for sobriety ami
public piofft. The clergyman pressed a total abstainer to manage it
as a duty to God and his fellow-
creatures, lie wrote Mr, Joseph
Matins, of Good Templar fame, for
advice; but contrary to advice le-
ceived, took over the manageament,
In about a year the clergyman
turned him oul as a drunkard,
Another total abstainer was appointed as malinger, he also became
a drunkard, The clergyman confessed to begging the manager of
the reformed public house to reform
himself, but in vain. This manager committed suicide.
The clergyman narrated this
story at the inquest.
Tired of trying to reform the
business, he handed the house over
to tlie brewery company.
It is possible to acquire the taste
for strong drink, under very pleasant surroundings, but the results
are often disastrous. Sobriety is
better than drunkenness, and total
abstinence is the only safe path.
I fail to  see  that  tlie  traffic  is
necessary for health or pleasure;
aud as to trade and buisuess,  I   regard it as its greatest enemy,
I am Youi s truly
An Englishman.

Local Option in New Zealand
���jjditor Review
Dear Sir:���Prohibition of the Liquo
Traffic _illbrliig'iucalc liable gain. This
belief is rapidly gaining ground in New
Zealand, and is expressing itself in Local
If a majority vote could secure national prohibition. New Zealand would have
had it at the last election; but the three
liltlis vote required there prevented this.
lu my next letter I hope to submit
statements as to tlie results of local option
in some New Zealand towns.
I must refer here, briefly, to Karl
Grey's "Public House Trust Co.,"
mentioned in Mr. Mien's last letter. 1
think a more appropriate name fo: it
would be "Karl Crey's.Disguised llooz-
ing Sy .tem."
You may dress Up the devil in the
guise of a refined and polished gentleman, and introduce him Into Society;
but lie is still the devil, and wherever lie
is, the works of the devil will be done.
So, likewise, no matter how refined aud
cultured the surroundings, if "booze"
be there, the results of ''boozing" will
However, let me say that Karl Grey's
Public House Trust Co., has been strongly condemned by British Tenipe, mice
Societies, and by many prominent people
in Great Brinain; e. g., Sir Wilfred Law-
son, (President ol the United Kingdom
Temperance Alliance,) Rev. Geo. Gladstone, (Pres. Scottish Temperance League, ) Lady Henry Sunerset, (Pres. of
the National Women's Temperance
Association,) etc. I will, if necessary,
quote statements by some of these in a
luture letter.
The only cure for a cancer, is to cut it
out; the only cure for the drink Cancer ���
the Liquor Traffic���which is corrupting
and destroying the youth and manhood
ol our country, is to cut it out by means
of prohibition.
This is the belief of the Car.a Han Parliament, Listen, "Resolved, that the
right and most effectual remedy for the
suppression of the evils of intemperance
is to be found in the entachthent and
enforcement of a law, prohibiting the
manufacture, importation, and sale of
intoxicating liquors for beverage purposes. And this House is prepared, so
soon as public sentiment will sustain
stringent measures to promote such legislation, so far as Is within the competency
of the Parlimaetit of Canada."
This was passed iu 1SS4, by the House
of Commons at Ottawa, by a vote of 122
to 40. A similar one was passed by both
Houses in 1874, by large majorities.
Until we can obtain provincial or
national prohibition', the next best thing
is Local Option.

woman to know that people are talking about her, and all the tlmo she Is

Don't you think he did?

Yes, ho can.     She Bhlvored,
Fleming hmi been shot. Schwartz
bad been in tbe city about the Hor-

you don't know about your White

of the upstairs rooms and shuts off

Henry Butler was found dead at tbe
foot of that staircase.
He shot himself, didn't bo?
The police said so, she replied, with
her grim smile. Thero is such a thing
as murdering a man by driving him to
She wrote an address on a card and

Just a minute, I said ns sho was

Mr. Fleming speak of the Misses Maitland?    ���
They were bis first wife's sisters.
No, he never talked of them, but 1
believe just before he left Plattsburg
he tried to borrow some money from
Aud fnlled.
The oldest ono telegraphed tho refusal, collect, she said, smiling faintly-
Thero is something else, I said. Did
you ever hoar of the number eleven
No���or���wby, yes���she said. It.
is the number of my house.
It seemed rather ridiculous when
she had gone, and I sat down to
think it over. It was anti-climax to
say the least. If the mysterious
number meant only the address of
this very ordinary woman, then���it
was probable her story of Schwartz
was truo enough. But I could not
reconcile myself to it, nor could I imagine Schwartz, with his great bulk
skulking around, pinning scraps of
paper to pillows.
That night, at the most peaceful
spot I bad ever known���Fred's home
���occurred another inexplicable affair,
one that left us all with racked
nerves and listening, fearful ears.
Tbat was to be Margery's last evening at Fred's. Edith had kept her
as long as she could, but the girl felt
that her place was with Miss Letitia.
Edith was desolaie.
Margery and I were alone.
1'erhans I was morbid about the
ring. It seemed to me she lifted her
hand and looked at it.
Harry Wardrop was here last night.
I said, poking down the log with my
Yos. I suppose I was wrong, but
I did not Bay you wero hero.
She looked at me closely out of the
most beautiful eyes I ever saw.
I am not afraid to see him, she said
proudly, and he ought not to be afraid
to see me.
In justice to him. I said, and because I want to flgbt fair I tell you
tonight that I don't believe he knows
anything about your father's death
and that I believed be was robbed that
night at Bellwood.
What about tbo pearls ho sold at
Plattsburg? she asked suddenly.
I tbink when the proper time comes
ho will tell about that, too, Margery.
I did not notice my use of her name

Fred and I sat In the library for
awhile after the rest had gone, and I
told him a little of what I had learned that afternoon.

Concrete Tanks and Troughs
Never Rot or Leak
TPHE most practical tanks, whether for water ot
sewage, are built of concrete. They never nut,
rot, dry out or leak.   They never need new hoops
or paint. They last a lifetime and leldom require repairing)
which makei them the cheapest tanks that can be built.
Clean, Sanitary Watering Troughs
are just as necessary as tlie animals that drink from theiB. Ths
farmer's best interests are being- served when Iiii Hock is insured a plentiful mpply of clear, clean water from a trough
that is permanent and sanitary.
"What the Farmer can do with Concrete" is the name of
a handsome free book that tells ali about coacrete tanks,
watering troughs and other uses of concrete that will tare
every farmer many dollars.   Write for it to-day,

Lazo Political Association
At a meeting ol tlie I.azo Politiacl
Association on April 4th., Mr. A. II.
Westrup being in tlie chair, Mr. Man-
sen addressed the residents of I.azo.
Mr. Manson expressed his pleasure,
that a political association had been
formed to work fo; the good of the district, and to provide a meeting place
where political questions would he discussed. He assured the meeting that lie
appreciated the chance to get ill touch
with the residents of tills part of Comox
district, regardless nf their political
opinions, because lie was bound to con-
s'der the rights of Liberal as well as
Conservative, since he represented tlie
whole district in the Provincial House,
an 1 not only tlie Conservative part of it.
Mr, Manson descrided at some length,
the work that had been done in tlie
House, the Acts that have been passed
by his Government, and explianed their
policy, and their intentions with regard
to tlie questions of most interest to tlie
Province. He then discussed with tlie
meeting the special requirements of I<azo
District, and the objects of the Association which had been formed.    He be
lieved that the interests of good government, nil should.combino to work for the
general good, and lie expressed his
willingness to work with tlie Lazo Political Association along those lines,
It became apparent that Mr. Manson
is not the man to make extravagant
promises and then disappear until the
agitation is oier. He does not say
Yes, Yes, Yes.���and then make excuses
from a distance afterwards. When a
thing is impossible, either hecause of the
present state of tlie finances or for anv
other reason, he is man enough to stand
up aud say so. Thus tlie people may
console themselves to the thought that
when Mr. Manson does promise something, there is reasonable assurance that
it will be done.
The meetihg, at which more than thirty-
were pesent, adjourned with a vote of
thanks to Mr, Manson for tlie address
to which they liad listened. Mr. A. F.
B, Church entertained Mr. Manson and
his party with, some light refresh rent
when the meeting was over.
The Lazo Political Associalion was

Ford owners; We are after your cash
We are not members of the "greatest organization in- the world," nor
are we connected witli any other trustor combine; but in return for cash
we, as qualified automobile engineers, offer you a day and night service
and an absolute guarantee with everything we sell, because we know
it's good. Commonseiise tells us that an engineer's opinion on an
engineering problem is of more value than tlie opinion of a "wallpaper
hanger," "rat-catcher," "shoe-shine expert" or "soft-drink bottler.".
Beware of the man who mingles sentiment witli business and who,
under tlie guise of "sworn friendship" would have you believe-thnt lie
will be pleased to undetrake your repairs "for tlie sake of auld laug syne.''
We have, endeavoured to trace tlie genealogical descent oi "of the man
who attempted to graft the 'innards' of a pug dog on to a pelican" and
find that his uncle was the "mutt" who, "in t'le expectation of pleasant
results'' fed his h irse on harness, buggy tops, horseshoes and "such dope.''
It is not our policy to foist useless dope on our customers but accessories which we have proved to be of practical value, and it is with the
utmost confidence that we recommend and guarantee  the efficiency of
our "Ford" Specialties
We all know the reason why Ford Agenss do not sell Master Vibrators,
Shock Absorbers, Etc. They are bound by contract to sell Ford spare
parts, and, if all Ford Owners liad Master Vibrators and Shock Absorbers fitted to then- cars, there would not be any spring repairs and coil
adjusting jobs to while away the spare time

DON'T you know you belong to the greatest organization in the
world, every Ford Dealer is your sworn friend no matter how-
old your Ford may be. If you travel to a slr.inge land the only card
of membership you need is your Ford, hunt up the Ford Dealer, there
you are entitled to courtesy and just treatment. If you should be held
up report it to tlie nearest Ford Branch, tlie dealer would be held to
account for such infringement of his contract, for which lie has put up
a cash deposit for such
If you have not got tlie Ford Book of Parts and Price List get one from
your nearest dealer
Beware of the Repair Man who advertises Ford Extras, lie is after your
cash,   and   nine   out  of   ten   of   them   cannot  adjust   a  Ford   Coil
let  alone any other coil
There was once a profoundly learned professor, who spent nine years
grafting tlie internal organs of a pug. dog onto a pelican. He is a
brother of the man who feeds the Model' T Ford with Cut-outs,
Excelarators, Storage Batteries, Self-starters, Master Vibrators and such
dope and expects pleasant results
The   Bas c Principle of the Ford is simplicity, and as a result the Ford
Motor Company lias made and sold nearly half a million Model T Fords
and naif the cars on tlie road today are Fords
