Somf G. ���:>(! ,o_ _t The Station
The streets through the Station Subdivision are very short! >��� to be ___
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 lot?,
50 x 120 feet can be had at the present time at��250 each. Corner cots
S3 x 125 for ��300, These prices will be raised shortly. Terms 1-4 cash
the balance in 6, 12 a:-d 18 mouths, 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 who want a good sized residential property close iu, '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
at any time in my office

The effects of low vitality On the
eyesight are little understood, or fewer people would rush to the optician
when trouble comes, instead of first
trying to get the nervous system into
good coniition.
When the nerves become exhausted,
about the first indication is weakness
of the optic nerve, and consequent eye
trouble and nervous headaches. The
strain on the optic nerve, in continually adjusting and focusing the lens
of the eye is enormous, and when the
nervous force in the body is diminished' the trouble is first felr in the
sight and by severe headaches.
By forming new, red corpuscles in
the blood, Dr. Chase's Nerve Food
revitallf.es the wasted nerve cells and
instils new vitality into the optic
nerve, as well a.; the other nerves of
tbe ">ody. Headache is not merely
relieved, but the cause is removed.
Sight Improves, and instead.of the
annoyance aud makeshift practice of
wearing glasses, tie- eyes a.e strengthened and the general health improved
in every way.

To Measure Coal in a Bin
A solid cubic foot of anthracite coal
veigus about 93 pounds. When
broken for use it weighs about 6i
pounds. Bltuml, 'its coal, when
broken up for use, weighs about 50
pounds. The consequent rule for the
approximate measurement of coal in
a bin or box is to multiply ihe length
in feet by the height iu feet and again
by the breadth in feet, and this result
by 54 for anthracite coal, or by 50 for
bituminous coal. The result will
equal the number of ton3 divided by

!    Hnd the cat been around Mr. Bowser
would have shed her blood In gleeful
1 ferocity, but as she wasn't, and as be
i was   determined   that   Mrs.   Bowser
shouldn't get tbo best ot him while life
' remained, be went his way without a
word.   It so happened that at the gate
i lio met the pnllcciiiau wbo had almost

Blew te Simple Life.
It was a bard blow to Mr. Bowser's
"simplicity." no fumed and raged for
Ibe next two blocks, nud something
happened that brought" about tho beginning of the end. The keeper of a
restaurant, who wa3 standing at b��
door, beckoned to him nnd said:
"Here, old man, if you'll clean oft (he
rest of this snow I'll glvo you a bite
of breakfast."
"You go to Jericho 1" was the prompt
and vigorous answer.
"What! What's that? Look a-hcre,
you'old Weary Willie, if you give me
any o'f your Up I'll stand you on your
head!   What do you think I am?"
"And who do you tbink I am?" hissed Mr. Bowser as he thrust his chin
forward and prepared for battle.
There would havo been a scrap but
for a small boy wbo hnppeued to be
passing and recognized Mr. Bowser.
"Say," he called to tho restaurateur,
"that feller ain't no tramp I   He don't
have to shovel snow to git a meall"
"Then who in blazes Is he?"
"He's old Bowser, wbo lives up on
First place.   He's wenrin' them duds
because he's got a new fud."
He Sends a Telegram.
Mr. Bowser left the house at 8;30. At
9:15 Mrs. Bowser received a telegram,
"Have  fried chicken,  corn  fritters
and sweet potatoes for dinner tonight!"
Half an hour later came another,
"Have oyster soup, nave boiled onions.   Have rice pudding."
Then Mr. Bowser rested for an boui
and sent tho following:
"Have dinner half an bpur ahead ot
(he usual time. Have two fried chickens. Have ice cream and raisins and
nuts for dessert Spare uo cxpeuss
Thero was one more telegram.    It

"I think it was, Bridget."

Reporting Speeches of the Empire's
To anyone who Btops to consider
for a moment It will be obvious that
tbe position of Parliamentary reporter la one of no small responsibility,
it Is upon him that we depend for ,
an accurate account of the speeches,,
weighty and otherwise, made in the
various Houses of Commons in the
Empire, and to him we are Indebted
for ihe general Parliamentary nows
which we are accustomed to find on
our breakfast 'able every morning.
"The Caller} man," aa be ls termed ;
In newspaper circles, Is tbe Parliamentary chronicler for the people, i
and from his seat above the Speaker's chair he dally watches the legislative drama and faithfully records
tho doings of our M.P.'s.
In Great Britain tbe Press Gallery
Is a highly organized machine.
Kach seat In the Press (lallery la
carefully allotted to the representa-
tlvca of the different newspapers.
"The central place Immediately above
the Speaker's Chair Is reserved for
,the representative of The Times' chief
of staff, who haB on bis left The
Times' reportor and bis right The
Dally Telegraph. Next to The Times'
reporter ls The Times' summary
writer, for the first newspaper In the
kingdom enjoys the privilege of three
representatives In tbe gallery. Many
of the papers, however, depend on the
press agencies for tbelr Parliamentary reports, and doTiot send representatives," says Mr. J. D. Symon, In
"The Press and Its Story." "The reporters are organized In gallery.corps
of from three to sixteen members
each, all expert stenographers."
The work ot each reporter in the
House is governed by certain Instructions relating to the space which can
be afforded In the paper which hs
represents to the speeches of tho various members. These Instructions run
something like this: "Asqulth, 1st
person, fully. Churchill, 1st person,
cut down. Bonar Law, fully. Cecil
3rd person, good summary. Kemain-
der of debate must be kept to lines."
On great historic occasions the
etaff of representatives is considerably augmented. For instance, on
the memorable April 8th, 188(i, when
Mr. Gladstone introduced his Home
Ilule Bill, nearly every paper had sent
out the Instruction, "Gladstone, 1st
person, verbatim." On some papers
! nearly twenty reporters were requlr-
] ed, working in relays of three, Ave,
j sr ten-mlnute "takes."
Much depends, of course, on what
i debate ls going on as to whether a
reporter has a busy time or not, and
If there is little o* importance happening he has a welcome period of
leisure whlcb he may spend in the
smoking-room,  tea-room, or dining-
room.  But if his notebook is full he
goes to'one ot the writing-mt rooms
provided for   gallerymen,  where   he
prepares his "copy" for the press.
!     Nor are his duties merely tbe task
of slavish reporting, for, us Mr. Symon points out, "a certain amount of
discretion   ls    exercised,    and   hon.
i members ow .  a  great deal  to  tho
j reporter, for ln  the  haste and ner-
| vousncs8 of public delivery not every
i period is rounded  lo a full  close.
\ Minor indiscretions   of   speech, too,
j are often kindly veiled and modified
I by the recording angel."
' Dungeons To Be Opened.
Visitors to tho Tower ot London
I after the New Year will have au opportunity of viewing the Tower dungeons beneath the White Tower and
the Bloody Tower, cells as deep as
tho moat Itself. Although it is nearly forty years ngo since the Tower
was thrown open, these dungeons
have never been available to visitors.
The Office of Works, however, somo
time ago decided to clear them out
and throw them open to the public.
Furthermore, a large part of the
Bloody Tower, hitherto used as quarters for Borne of the othclals, will be
opened, and the scene of the murder
of the little princes will be sure lo attract a large number of people. It
might be mentioned thut at present

where the bones were found in the

Model of Politeness.
Sir Ernest Shacklcton tolls' of an
amusing incident which occurred
during his famous expedition to the
Antarctic. The greatest politeness
was always exhibited by a certain
I professor, who was a member of the
1 expedition, even in the most trying
One night the professor called out
to a colleague: "Are you busy, Maw-
"I am," said Mawson.
I     "Very busy?" asked the professor.
I      "Yes, very busy."
"If you are uot too busy, Mawson,
i am down a crevasse."
The polite professor was discovered banging dowu a crevasse by his
four fingers, a dangerous position
which he could not have maintained
for any appreciable length of time.
Too Energetic.
Two salesmen st a Melbourne tat-
lor's shop were each fined 40 shillings
for pulling a youth who passed into
tho establishment and measuring him
against bis will for a suit of clothes.

Way to Foil the Efforts of Those Whe

j The concerted action of the bouse dee
tectives of all tho large hotels In Ame.
Ica bae carefully extracted the polnte
from two erstwhile excellent stories,
tho first, ascribed to Adele llitcM e��
who, wben asked once if sbo bad ever
been in Knnsas City, replied, "I cant
just remember, but I will look among
iny towels and sec," and the second
(ho moro pathetic narrative of the
young man who was obliged to break
vtf his engagement because as he lefi
tho dining room of a largo hotel wltfe
his fiancee a number ot forks and
spoons fell from the sleeves of lee
gown, for the house detectives hive
devised a "system" whereby tbe mu
nr woman wbo wants to take a souvenir from a big hotel finds her path be��
set wltb almost Insurmountable d_a_
en 1 ties.
Tbe matter ls carried on with the
greatest artfulness. There are ne
"hurt feelings," no bones broken, _t
arrests made.
Tho house detectives simply extract
the unrightfully attached articles aa
painlessly as they extract the polnte
from old stories, and In the great m��
Jorlty of cases the frustrated "borrow,
er" never knows at all what happened
to bim.
First the detective Is provided with
a completo list of everything which le
owned by the hotel���every particle ol i
linen, silver, sonp, etc. Then he del*
gates tho responsibility for tbe care of
them lo viftious bead waiters, waiters,
housekeepers nnd chambermaids.
| Then he gets a list each day of new
nrrhals and of those wbo having rea
niained a few days are preparing te
leave. From these lists of occupied
rooms the detective calculates the
areas where trouble might posslblj
brew nnd into these he goes with kie
subdivided lists und n checking up
Tho chambermaid Is required to give
nn '/tact nccounllnp of every piece ol
linen sho has suppl ed to the man ot
woman who Is aboul to leave. This Is
In turn taken to the limdvles, where ���
balance Is mnde of t use sheets, towels,
etc.. which have ' 'me out of each
room. If there Is a -rccise balance the
matter ends there, nt woe to the w_
man who believes * nt the towels she
pined carefully in her locked trunk
will not be "missed. "
\ Her trunks nnd l 'gs on their way
downstairs are slm ly carried to the
basement floor as if by chance, and
thero the house detective, with tbe aid
of a skeleton key, goes through them
in search of lost hotel linen.
It Is very gently removed and cheeked up on tbo Housemaid's list, and the
trunk Is carefully repacked and re-
locked. Nothing ls left to give wan.
Ing thnt the search has been made,
and nothing Is ever by nny remoteet
chance said to the departing guest.
Sbe is scut cheerily on her way re>
joic'ug and Is usually perplexed out ol
nil reason to account for . . fact that
the towels and pillow cases thnt the

Do you suppose for a moment that
this Is an extreme case nor even ���
rare one? It happens ou nn average
onee n day In every large hotel la

and Chicago.

In tin giv. 11 for my consid
ati m, '"'.mi 2:19, say!. ' Je ius said, de
troy tin i temple,   and  in  three  days   !
will raise il   up."   The  21st  versa  i t
��� ius, "But lie spaki ot the temple
ot his 1 ody." I cannot see this has reference ton change of the Sabbath. 1
never found a text in Scripture, where
Christ abrogated or repealed the law
"I God,
On ths contrary, Christ >aid I delight
to do thy will t> my God, thy law is
within my heart, and he has promisedto
ui e n new covenant witli his people by
writing his Urns in their hearts, so he will
write this identical law which was written in his heart, iu our hearts, if we
desire bim to do so. 1 know there will
be no change made by him, in writing;
that law in our hearts, for In said in 'ns
sermon on the mount in Matthew 5:17 J
(five seventeen to twenty.) "Think not
that I am come to dcstro\ the L_w etc,
hn verily I say unto yen, till Heaven
and l_r.li pass, one jot or one tittle
shall in no wise pass from the haw.
Whosoever therefore break one of the.
Commandments and shall teach men so,
he shall be called the least iu the King-!
clom of Heaven, but whosoever shall do
and teach them, shall be called great"
Now dear "Subscriber," i undi island
by this Sermon un the Mou'H, that
Christ referred to the Ten Commandments, the 1. w of Cod which were
written ou stone, with God's own finger.
Christ says as long as Heaven and l_rth
last, nut one jot or tittleshall pass irom
the-1.aw. Tims we see it was not with
Christ's consent orapproval, the Seventh
day Sabbath was changed to the iir-,t
or Sunflay.
Christ wns in the Pillar of Cloud by
day, and the 1'illar ot Fire by night,
leading the Israelites, seeKxodous 13:21,
Then read _xodous loth chapter, and
see how particular he was in teaching
them how to observe the Seventh day
Sabbath, For forty years he gave them
an object lesson in giving manna. These
lessons are for u&; we knuw Cod is unchangeable. Now let ns consider Acts
20:7-8, Before proceeding, 1 ask you,
(has a meeting of disciples, preaching
by Paul, and even if they partook of the
ilvord's Supper, constitute a sufficient
reason l'or human beings, to change the
strict commandment of t.od, who is the
Supreme Ruler of the Universe?
We read in the seventh verse "they
broke bread," also in the eleventh verse
"they broke bread again," I request you
to he candid, do you believe they partook of the t.ord's Supper twice in one
night. 1 believe they brake bread as we
do in paratking of our meals. 1 believe
St. t__e was the writer of Acts, and be
calls the first day a week day, he did
not say ou the new Sabbath; ouly on
the lirst day of the week, showing he did
not believe it was the Sabbath.
If you notice the Bible counts time
from sunset. So a day ends at sunset,
ami the next day commences. See the
lirst chapter of Genesis, God says the
evening and the morning i/ere the first
day. lie counts the dark and daylight
as one day. Jt was thus counted in
Paul's time. The Seventh Day Sabbath
closed at sunset, aud then the lirst day
of the week began. Now read the 7th
and 8th. While Paul remained preaching i the beginning of the lirst day of the
week, we would call it now, Saturday
evening, .till midnight, and there were
many lights there,
Wnile Paul remained, the Disciples including I.uke sailed around' the peninsula (which extends into the Agean Sea J
to Assoss, there intending to take in
Paul as be appointed: minding himself
to go afoot. Paul walked across the
peninsula S mday morning, a distance
of 18 miles, while the disciples sailed
around, which would be too far for a
Sabbath day's jouruey, which proves
they did not regard it as the Sabbath.
Now considering 1st Cor. 19:1 and 2,
This shows Paul advised them to look
over the transactions or book accounts of
the]) ist week and give as God hath
prospered them. This work would be
wrong to do on the Sabbath. The 7th
day is called lhe hord's Day. See J__
chiel 20:10,20. Isiah 58:13,14, The
man of sin thinks to change God's time,
and laws, see 2nd Thess. 2:,J>,4 and Dan
iel 7:25.    Please consider these texts.

"Tho Failure of Capitlaism"
Dear Editor:���When British
Columbia to-day is feeling the
effects of the coal strikers and other
countries are passing through a
period of industrial unrest, the
following passage by Colonel Henry
Pilkington ih the Louden Times
under the above heading, will be of
interest to your readers. He
It is pretty clear thnt the old
industrial system which its enemies
call "Capitalism," is going to be
broken down in many places, it
i.s undeniably open to objection
that��� to put it gently���it admits of
the exploitation of labour by capital, There are two complete
theories, and only two, for replacing it and organizing industry so
that labour may employ capital
instead of capital employing  labor.
They are the theories of .State
Socialism aud Co-Operation. Between them, I believe, lies the ouly
Botli systems combine the re-
sources of the community for
wealth production. But .State
Socialism would make the wealth
produce the property of the community, while Co-Operation allows
it to be owned by individuals. It
appears to me that those who are
opposed to Socialism should throw
themselves into the work of
the Co-Operative organization instead of making futile efforts to
bolster up a system which it is
certain modem democracy will not
much longer tolerate.
Yours faithfully

Editor Review.
Dear Sir:��� I believe commercial
travellers understand hotel conditions better than any class of people.
One of the best known travellers
in Western Ontario spoke uot very
lot g ag > as follows:���
"Every three weeks I cover fifty-
one town t in Western Ontario, and
cf these, thirty-eight are dry. In
each case, with perhaps oue or two
exceptions, the hottl accomodation
in these dry towns is better than
befcre the Local Option by-law
came into forcej In no plac: w'th-
out exception, are ccuditious wot se
"I would like .o take you to
Southampton so you could s.e
how pleased the boys are to get
into this town. The Comineic.al
Hotel provides particularly good
accomodation. Another case is
Creemore. Here in the Mansion
House, I believe we travellers find
thej best accomodation that can be
got iu any town of one thousand
anywhere iu Canada.
"Shelbume is another town
The Royal Hotel here for many
years gave fair accommodation, but
now since Local Option came into
force, it is a revelation to travelers
as to what accommodation can be
"At the Queens Hotel in Orange-
ville conditions are very much
better than they were before the
by-law came into force. At Flest
erton the Munshaw House ha
always giveu good accommodmtio
and still continues to do so, thong
the bur is cut off. In Durham|an
Bolton conditions have greatly itt
proved for the traveler's comfoi
since the towns become dry.
"Then again, I want to spea
particularly of Owen Sound and t
say a good word for the Seldo
House, This is one of the brigl
spots on the road for us. It is
delight to go there. I knew th
town well under the old licens
conditions, and it is certainly muc
improved since Local Optioo can
into force."
I have statements from tl
mayors of Southampton, Shelbun
Creemore and thev. all agree wil
this commercial traveler in sayit
that conditions are much improvi
under Local Option. The May
of Owen Sound says everything
good there, but does net know he
things might be if they had be
under license.
Some of us are hoping that B.
may lead the Dominion and tl
Courtenay may lead B. C. in t
crusade against drink. It wot
bring unspeakable gain to our to
iu many ways if Courtenay shoi
become known as the Prerc
Town of B. C.

One of our citizens here is elaborating a scheme for cutting
blocks of ice out of the glacier, and
delivering them to customers by
means of a wire cable. This is
not a hot air scheme, Mr. Editor,
and I think could be most successfully negotiated by means of a
flying machine. Ice cream would
then be within reach of everyone.
Storekeeper London, is most enthusiastic about the scheme-

Wben she had agreed 1 went to tlio

Burton attended to the matter thoroughly, Tho 1 o'olooli edition of an

vivid scarlet necoiinl of Miss .lane's

The sunlight caught the ring on her
engagement, tinner, and she flushed
suddenly as she saw me looking at it.
Wo sat there for a while saying nothing. Tlio long May afternoon was
coming to a close. Tho paths began
to llll with long lines of hurrying
home-scotters, (.hoi.- day in ofiice or
factory at an nnd.
Then impulsively she hel.1 out her

suppose, but just now nothing matters

She dropped her veil quickly, and
wo went back |0 the car. The prosaic
world wrapped us around again. Tlicre
was a heavy odor of restaurant coffee
in the air. I'eople bumped and jolted
j past us. To me they were only shadows. The real world wao a girl In
iblack and myself, and tlio girl wore
a betrotliel ring which was not mine.
Mrs. Untie came down to dinner
that nirlit.- She was moro cheerful
than I had yet seen iter, an'. alio had
changed he.r mourning garments to
something a trifle less depressing.
With her masses of hair dressed high
and her face slightly animated, 1 realized what, I liad not done before, that
she was the wreck of a very beautiful
She used a cane when she walked,
and after dinner in tlie library she was
content to sit impassive, detached,
propped with cushions, whil. Margery
read to the boys In their night nursery
and Edith embroidered.
Fred had been fussing over a play
for some time, and he had gone to
read it to somo manager or other.
Edith already was spe.iding the royalties.
We could go a little ways out of
town, siie was saying, and _a could
have an automobile. Margery says
theirs will bo sold, and certainly it
will be a bargain.
Near me Mrs. Butler ha.', languidly
taken up the paper. Suddenly she
dropped if, and wl en 1 stooped anJ
picked it up 1 noticed she wns trembling.
ls il Irue? she demanded. ls Robert Clarkson dead?
Yes, 1 assented. He has been dead
since Sunday morn'ng���a suicide.
I'm glad, glad, silo said. Then she
grew weak and semi-hysterical, laughing and crying in the sain.: breath.
When she had been hclpejl upstairs���
f t In her weakened state it had been
moro of a shock than wo realized ���
Margery came down, and we tried to
forget tho scene we had just gone
it wns strange lo contrast tho way
in which thu tw i women took their
similar bereavements. .Margery represented tho best type of normal
American womanhood, Ellen Butler
the neurasthenic, she demanded everything by her very helplessness and
timidity. Sho was a constant drain
on Edith's ready sympathy. That night
while I closed the house���Fred liad
not como In���I advised iter to let Mrs.
Butler go back to her sanatorium.
At 12.30 1 was still downstairs. Fred
was out, and I waited for him, being
curious to know the verdict on the
play. The bell rang a few minutes
before 1 and I went to the door. Somebody in the vestibule was tapping the
door iinpi.ttently with his foot. When
I opened the door I was surprised to
find that the lato \isltor was Wardrop, His eyes were sunk deep In his
head, his reddened lids ..nd twitching
mouth told of little sleep, of nerves
ready to snap.

Sin���As we read the lett .rs in

valuable, because each week it is
becoming more beneficial and interesting) Sir, it would be interesting to know how many have beeu
terrified in our district during 1913,
by that so called glorious beverage
that we so often thirst for. It
would be interesting also to know
how much money has been used
that should have been used for the
necessaries of life- that has beeu
spent for less than nothing. The
few half starved children and
broken hearted mothers and friends
in our midst, are only few, when
compared with the many in our
fair land, (that one has boasted of,)
Reader, did you ever stop to think
of what a great army that was

to the great battle of Spion Kop,
30,000 able bodied men, can you
conceive that great number in your
mind? Then how greatly appaling
should it be to us when we see
from 600,000 to 700,000 souls in
one country alone destroyed and
laid in their graves annually, without considering the evil transmitted
to the future generations. How
long, at this rate, will it be before
we, as a race will be extinct?
