Waters   of   Ireland's   Greatest   Lake
Stolen From Public by Lord
Deputy's Fraud
Dublin, Ireland.���It is a truism Unit
only tlie busiest men havi* any limo
to spare, and it Is proved again hy
the  publication  ot an  elaborate,  historical study by T. M. llealy, the famous Irish M.P., who is as entertaining and brilliant with iiis pen as he Is
In speech.
Mr, llealy was one of tlie counsel
tn the case concerning the fishing
rights In the witters of l.ough Nengli,
decided by the house of lords in favor
of Lord Donegall in 1011, and his book
"Stolen Waters," is a careful examination of tbe evidence on which thai
decision was based,
Tho story begins 800 years aRo,
when James I waa king, and Sir Arthur Cblches'er, aveslo "f Lor I Hone-
gall, wns lord deputy of Ireland, King
���lames persuaded the corporation of
London lo plant certain territories iu
Ulster. They spent some $800,000
and they were promised In return land
in   Derry  un d the fishing  of Lough
Foylo and the rl\ Hiinu. According lo Mr. llealy, the Londoners were
defrauded ot Ihelr rights In Ilie Hann,
which with Lough Neagh, fro which
the river issues, was appropriated by
Chichester by letters patent, sealed
bv the lord deputy In bis own fu\ or
without"the consent or knowledge of
the king.
Strafford, an honest man and always
jealous for the rights of the crown,
compelled Chichester's heir lo restore
the slolen waters (the phrase ls, of
course, Mr. Healy'S) bul after the Restoration tbey again reverted lo the
For generations, Mr, llealy tells us,
tho patent privileges were unasserted as far hb Lough Neagh was concerned. In 3878, Indeed, the house
of lords upheld the public, right to fish,
but this decision was reversed two
years ago.
The embargo on Lough Neagh deprives the public of the profit of their
greatest lake, In behoof of private Individuals. To toil one's daily bread
In a perilous and precarious calling Is
no enviable birthright. Since the
world was young Ihls craft has been
freely piled by the longshoremen of
Lough Neagh. The right to exercise
It. they defended at the Seats of the
Mighty, only to find that the law rejected their claim to earn a livelihood.
To be bereft of one's living and see
a scanty patrimony decreed to strangers is 111 to bear, but the blow 19
made harder when tbe pretext for con-1
flBcatioii Is alleged to be some mustyi
letter from Cromwell or a reckless
lairing of tbe worthless Stuarts.
Mr. Healy tells his story wiih enthusiasm and thoroughness. The pursuit, if not. exhaustive, baB not been
without, pains. A trail three centuries old ls hard to follow. He concludes with a characteristic comparison between the methods of the English in Ireland and of the Romans in
Under the Roman occupation of .Tti-
dea no injunction was issued to deprive Hebrews of their fisheries. Of
the custom of tlie lakes of Galilee and
C?nnesarcth there Is evidence to go
to a jury that, tbe local tribesmen
could betimes lei down their nets for
a draught. Nor is there mention of
letters patent by Pontius Pilate or
Herod to filch the river Jordan into
their own hands.
But surely the sea of Galilee and
tlie lake of Gennesaretb were one and
the same.

Facts Brought Out at  Grain  Investigation  at  Minneapolis  Show  That
Elevator Companies are Large Gainers Through Being Allowed to Mix
Wheat.���Scandals  Attached  to   Investigation���Sample     Market    and
Mixing go Hand in Hand.
In the i'eoent investigation by the
legislature of Minnesota into methods
of grain  selling and  handling  some
very  interesting  facts   wero  brought
'"he committee appointed by the state
senate had before it last Saturday the
heads of the department or grain inspection and took sworn testimony of
th: chief clerk of the chief inspector
of the state as well ?.s that of the
chief inspector. The close relation
that exist between the sample
market and the system of mixing by
elevator companies, which is permitted by the laws of Minnesota was emphasized.
Tables were rhowii giving the number of bushels of wheat >.: various
grades received at the Minneapolis
elevt ars and the number of bushels of
the same grade which ,vas shipped
out of the sr.me elevators. The tab-
leu showed tlie figures for t. two-year
period, beginning SeptemW' 1, 11)10,
and ending August 31, l'J12.
The fact that the Minneapolis elevators received 15,671,515 bushels of No.
1 Northern wheat during those two
years and shipped out in the same
period 10,978,777 and had on hand
114,353 bushels, making a total of 20,-
093,130 bushels, was brought out. As a
result of the privilege of mixing the
elevators had ualnetl 4,521,555 bushels
of No. 1 Northern wheat from the lower grades of wheat purchased from the
The table of figures relating to (he
receipt and shipment of the various
grades tell the whole story of tho results of the mixing privilege. The
Bame cordltion ls found when the
figures on No. 2 Northern are presented, even though the grain in this grade
is not so large. During tlie two year
period the Minneapolis elevators received 20,414,584 bushels m No. 2. On
August 31, 1912, they had shipped out
22,242,410 busheln and still had on
hand 51,648 bushels, making a total of
22,294,094 bushels, or a gain of 1,880,-
510 bushels.
When the tables on No. 3, No. 4,
"rejected" and "no grade" wheat were
explained it was easily shown wliore
the grain In No. 1 and No. 2 came
from. In thn last four Instances
there was a loss In Iho clovators.
Thero wero 9,777 031 bushel.-, of No.
3 received during tho two years. Tho
shipments amounted to 7,864,282 nnd
on August 31, 1912 (he clovators had
ou hand 140,624 bushels. The total
of No. 3 wheat, cither shipped or on
bund, was 7,804,858 bushels. There
was a loss In No. 3 grade of 1,972,'
175 bushels.
in No. 4 grade the elevators received 2,812,653 bushi:; and shipped
out 624,433 bushels. Tim loss In I It is
grade waa 2,188,220 bushels.
The "rejected" wheat tables showed the same condition, In this case
there were 1,175,513 bushels received
and 621,773 bushels shipped nut, making a loss ot 653,740 bushels.
Hut It wns In Iho "no grade" class
whore lhe largest loss appeared, Here
4,11115,505 bushels were received. At
tin* end of tho two year period 1,000,045
bushels had been shipped uud there
was tin limn! 2411,393 bushels, making a
tt'tal of alilppcd and on hand of 1,250,-
338 bushels and leaving 3,445,227 bushels entirely iiniice:iiii!k 1 for.
Cases uf Individually ownod elevators were also cited to tho senate committee. Ono of these had received
215,142 bushels of No. 4 wheat and at"
the end of tho two year period had not
shipped out one bushel of this grade
and did not have on * bushel on baud.
In other words, every bushel of thiB
grade, the grade for which tho farmer was paid, wiib mixed and came out
In tho No. 1 and No. 2 Northern
grades, the grade for which the elevator owner sold it.
Tlie elevator ) .en who bavo testified before the senate committee and
the house committee have argued that
the grain which they make by being
allowed to mix is largely offset In the
cost of the mixing process. This
fact is vigorously disputed by James
A. Manahan, counsel for the house
committee, recently elected congress-
inan-at-large for the state of Minnesota. Mr. Mauahan's contention is
that the farmer is the loser by many
millions every year under the present
"When the elevator companies buy
tho wheat they give the farmers the
prices prevailing that day for No. 2,
3 "rejected" or "no grado' said Mr.
Manahan at one of the sessions. "On
that same day, these sar.o elevator
companies sell a future on No. 1 and
2 for praotlcally that samo amount.
Their experience has taught them that
they can mix the lower grades so as
to iill tho future order with No. 1 and
2. On that very day they make a
profit ranging from the price they paid
for the lower grades and the price for
which they sell the future on No. 1
and No. 2. In my opinion this nets
them a profit amounting to hundreds
of thousands of dollars. True it.is
that there is some expense in the mixing process but even so I believe that
the elevator man Is making au enormous profit, a profit way out of pro
F. W. Eva, chief of the grain Inspection department, when asked regarding
the relation of the system of mixing
with the sample market, said: "A sample market would be of no value without the privilege of mixing. The two
go hand in hand. I believe that the
elevator men, having the privilege of
mixing, ca: pay a premium for the
upper level ot the grade."
In another statement made before
the committee Mr. Manahan said there
was no doubt that the elevator companies are getting much of the profit
that should be going to the farmer.

Chinese immigration to Canada
during the past fiscal year reached
a record total of 7745. Total revenue received from polltax was$3,349,
442, of which British Columbia
receives approximately $1,500,000.
Old timers will remember with
peculiar feelings the celebration of
the Queen's Birthday at Comox
Harbor iu May 1889. To Mr. Wm.
Greive we are indebted for tlie copy
of a poster announcing the event,
which reads as follows:
Queen's Birthday Celebration at
the .Sand Spit Comox, B. C. on
Friday May 24 1889. A grand base
ball match between tlie Comox aud
Union Mine Clubs. Foot racing,
boat racing, horse racing- canoe
races by Clootchmen, jumping and
oilier athletic sports. $10 for the
prettiest baby, aud $10 for the
handsomest young lady. A special
foot race for $100 a side between
Jack Bruce and an unknown Co-
moxian. Grand ball in tlie Knights
of Pythias hall iu the evening.
Committee: Messrs. J. Bruce, D.
Muscamp and M. E. Millett.
It is doubtful if the celebrations
we have to-day bring tlie enjoyment
those old time ones did,
One of the incidents Mr. Grieve
remembers is that Mr. Gardner and
aud his two sous made $225 that
day carrying passengers to and from
Roy's Beach, much to tlie chagrin
of Mr. J. B. Holmes whose row
boats tltey had hired for tlie occasion. The Union Mine had just
opened then and there was no road
to Cumberland, and tlie nearest
point to Comox was Roy's beach.
Mr. Grieve also remembers the
burning of tlie Steamer Grapler at
Cape Mudge in 1S83. Mr. Jos.
McPhee was also in the vicinity at
the time trading with the Indians,
and but for tlie blankets lie had
with him the survivors would have
fared very badly indeed. When
the boat became uumauagable the
Chinese crew seized all the life preservers. An Indian named Chicotus
whom mam- will remember, seized
a club and sailed into the Chinamen and took a large portion of
them away.

The president aud vice president
of the Comox Logging & Railway
Co., Messrs. A.I). McRae and J,
I>. MeCorinaek, respectively, were
at Headquarters on ilie iyth and
20th. They returned to Vancouver
by Wednesday mornings boat.
Mr. 11. Buyer has recently returned from Golden, where lie has
been in connection with installing
oil burners on the locomotives of
that place,
There was considerable excitement at
Headquarters ou the evening of the Jotli
Two of the most popular young, men of
that town, alter having decided not lo
attend the Courtenay dance, received a
trlephone call from a couple ol Cumberland's charming poung ladies ami live
minutes alterwarils they were seen running at lull speed to lhe nearest rum h-
ers to hire a rig.    The rancher, living iu
Ignorance ol their Inability as teamsters,
graciously acceded to then- request and
they shortly returned with his most up-
to-date buggy and a horse lhat wo..id
probably lip ihe scales at win pounds,
Alter spending au hour and a hall shaving and massaging their laves, and having dressed in their most becoming manner, tltey went iulo the .store and purchased a generous supply of dainty
sweets lor their lady friends. Jly this
time thev were, as tltey thought, ready
to prodeed on their way to Courtenay,
but after antyillg their steed, anil having
seated themselves eomfualably iu the
buggy, they found to their dismay that
the horse continued to follow straight up
along tbe railway track instead ot turning into the pubiij thoroughfare, as
though he was going by instinct for
want of a driver, when suddenly be
turnep to lhe right anil crossed the railway trae.-. The occupants of the carriage, fearing they were going to b - car-
lieu into tne tall timber, witu muring
eyes and prespiring foreheads, grabbed
hold of a line eaeii ami began lo pull
with all their might and main, living
unable to check the onrush of the ferocious beast ill this manner they both
seized the one line und brought the
animal to such a sharp angle that he lost
his footing and rolled over in the mud.
At this particular moment, to the dismay
of the numerous spectators, Roy was
seen to tuke a flying leup, over the buck
of the buggy, which would have put a
professional skee jumper to shame, alighting in a nearby puddle, ami Clarence,
likewise being unable to retain his s .-at
any longer, tumbled out over one ol tne
front wneels. One of the kind luartjd
speactators ran to the assistance of uiese
two would be drivers aud reharncssed
the noble steed while our two heors returned to the hotel und changed their
clothes. After spending anotner three
quarters of au hour on their toilet they
were seen to approach the unweiklly
steed with hesitating and trembling steps.
One of the bystanders being of a kind
disposition volunteered to lend his assistance and the two corageous youths, after
being reassured several times that there
was no further danger, for the second
time that evening eliuied into the rig.
After leading the horse out the road for
about a mile, until the boys regained
their nerve, he allowed them to venture
forth alone. Whether they reached
Courtenay iu time for the dance or not
the writer is not prepared to say but it is
presumed they did us they were heard to
remark before leavng Headquarters they
were going to reach Courtenay that night
if they hail to walk.
There is no doubt about these boys
being able to walk this distance if they
had to as the first one to be precipitateil
out of the rig had to walk from a point
between Courtenay and Cumberland to
Headquarters on the preceeding Sunday
evening having bee" joy riding in an

Cow Testing Association
The Provincial Department of
Agriculture, through the Livestock Branch, is offering to the
dairy farmers of British Columbia,
means whereby much needed information concerning the performance
aud profit of dairy cows will be
made available
The [plan followed, is to appoint
for a district, one experienced in
testing aud dairy-farm work, who
I will devote his entire time to the
business on hand. Equipped with
'a complete testing outfit, he will go
from farm to farm in the district,
and staying one night, will weigh,
sample and test the night and morning milkingsof all the cows. He
will also keep account of the feed
consumed by the cows, and valuing
both the butter-fat and the feed on
a basis set by the Directors of the
Association, will enter the figures
secured, in a book provided, which
is left with the farmer. No information whatever concerning results
obtained at any establishment must
be given by the tester to any person
except the owner ami the Secretary
of the Association.
To nny district securing for such
au Association a minimum of four!
hundred  cows, divided into about
2f>   herds,���which    represent    the,
working days of the month,���the]
Livestock Branch will I'm nidi the
necessary testing outfit, books, etc.,
aud a competent tester. It will
also guarantee this tester's salary,
aud undertake to pay the same,
settling matters quarterly with the
Secretary of the Association. The
members will contribute at the rate
of One dollar per cow per annum,
being billed therefor by the Secretary at the end of that quarter iu
which the cows came under the
The system can by no means be
termed new, as it has been followed
for years in Denmark, and more
recently iu Wisconsin and many
States of the Union, including tlie
neighbouring ones of Oregon and
Washington. Its chief advantage
lies in that complete yearly .statements of tbe feed and yield of animals arc obtained; authentic, because they have been secured by a
disinterested party, aud can therefore, be of service wheu the purchase or sale of dairy cows is contemplated.
To the dairy industry of the
Comox district, the institution of
such an Association should prove
of great value indeed. It is understood that several of the leading
dairymen are interesting themselves
in the project, and ��� purpose calling
a meeting for public discussion of
the matter before long.

Stolen From Public uy a... I
Deputy's Fraud
Dublin, Ireland���1! la a truism that
only the busiest men have nny time

the publication of an elaborate his*

Mr, llealy was one ol the counsel
In  the  ease  concerning  the  Ashing

decided by the lions' of lords lu favor
of Lord Donegal! In 1911, and his book
"stolen Waters," Is a careful examination Ot the evidence on which lhat
i.eclsion was based.
The story begins 300 years ago,
when .lames I was king, and Sir Arthur I'hlehes er, a' ( sti. ot Loi I Done-
gall, was lord deputy ot Ireland. King
James perBuaded the corporation of
London to plant certain territories in
Ulster. They spenl -some $800,000
and ibey war promised in return laud

the river issues, was appropriated by

For generations, Mr. llealy tells us,
Ihe patent privileges were unasserted ns far ns Lough Neagh was concerned. In 1878, Indeed, the house
of lords upheld the public right to lish,
but this deelslqn wns reversed two
years ago.
The embargo on Lough Neagh deprives the public of the profit of their

no enviable birthright. Since the

Mr. llealy tells his story with enthusiasm and thoroughness, The pursuit, If not exhaustive, hn; not he**n
without, pains. A trail three centuries old Is haj*d to follow. He eon-
eludes with a characteristic comparison between the methods of the English in Ireland aud of the Romans in

the custom of the lakes of Galilee and

Lower Blandford, N'ova Scotia.���"Thrr-o
years ago I became troubled with sore arms.
It came as a rash. My arms looked like

I could pot rest night or day. When I
scratched they became awfully sore. As
Ions as lhe wemlier was warm It didn't
bother mo so much, but in Winter il, waa
almost unbearable. My arms were .soro
from tbo wrist to Iho elbow.
*'I used sevcrul cures wbicli were recommended to mo but without any avail, I
saw how I could get a sample of Outlcura
8oap and Ointment which I did. I used
tbo samples and found an improvement.
Whenever 1 applied tho Cuticura Ointment
tho Itching and burning ceased. I got a
full-sized box of Cuticura Ointment aud a

It Just Escaped a Serious
tTftffft tTTI'TfTTTTTeTlfttT
Two of the boys from the Lone Bull
ranch were herding a bunch of cattlt
among the Bow hills, which were not
really hills at all, but bits of the prairie lifted Into little mounds of herbage.
Cnhricl and Tbcron Crane had not spoken for three weeks. Tbe reason for
their sudden change from warm friendliness to bitter enmity waa a mystery
to their comrades aud a milter for retreat for the entire otittit
Now they rode a few hundred yards
apart, silent, taciturn and moody. It
was not for them with hatred in their
hearts to rejoice in the sweetness of
the spring morning or to feel the pulse
of the now season beating strong with-'
to them.
A very little matter precipitated tht
smoldering passions that lay beneath
tho calm pxferlor of their sun browned
faces. Gabriel in passing his comrade,
who was smoking one of his everlasting cigarettes, felt the stinging bnrn ot
a flying ash against his cheek. Involuntarily his hand sought his hip pocket, but Crane bad already drawn and
was looking coolly at him from behind
his heavy weapon.
1 "W-e-1-1," drawled Crane after a little
startled pause, "did you reckon yon
could do for me this way?"
"You know better than that Too
needn't chuck your sparks in my face,"
retorted Gabriel furiously.
Crane smiled with t puzzled look behind his honest eyes. "What's eating
you, Gabe?" be demanded after * little
"What's eating yon, you mean. Ion

weeks. I heard all about what you

"Looking for trouble!" repeated
Crane incredulously. "Why, I been
trying to keep outer trouble with you.
I reckoned you'd lay for me some"���
"Lay for your' roared Gabriel. "I
ain't that kind. When I have a bone to
pick 1 ain't a-going around throwing
cigarette ashes in anybody's face. If
you got anything against me I'll meet
you down to Satan's gulch and we'll

There was a certain air of grim de- !

Tim Lewis to exchange nneasy glances
and later to meet at the gate of tbe
corral. Marry Barry was tbe Brat to
break tbe silence. '

marked with assumed lightness.
"So's Crane," said Tim significantly.
"What do you think they're going to

Tim Lewis shook bis head dubiously, i
"No telling."

drink except milk. They paid some
notice to tbe Widdcr Padrose."
Tim Lewis shook his head dubiously, j
"And tbey was always the best of

Imps a woman came between 'cm," he i
added hopefully as one who had dla- j
covered nn elusive clew.

men," chilled Tim.   "There Isn't any

we can to help keep 'cm from manufacturing sieves."

The dawn grew pale: and then Bushed with the coming of the sun. Tha
whole world was alight with the reddening glory, with the tonic sweetness
of the morning, but i��'ie two men riding forth to do vengeance each upon
the other saw nothing save tbe first
grim outline of tha tall cottonwoods
that mark tbe entrance to Satan's
gulch. Tbo trees grew larger and took
definite shape as tbey drew nearer.
The dull gray line which marked the
mouth of the gulch became an opening
which finally became large enough tor
them to ride through Into tbe ro:k inclosed desolate place,
i At tbe farther end there wns a level
stretch of sand. Here they could wreak
vengeance for their real or fancied
wrongs, and the sun wonld not be In
their eyes to dazzle their sight and
balk them of tbelr revenge.
Slowly they dismounted, making
much delay over tha careful stoking
of their horses at a respectful distance,
fussing orer tbe adjustment of saddles
and blankets and delaying In every
way the crucial moment At last when
there was no excuse for further delay,
Gabriel walked slowly to tbe farthest
point and leaned against a rock.
"I'm ready," he said carelessly.
"Same here," returned bis enemy
"There won't but one go back," said
Gabriel slowly. "I s'pose there might
be a message to send."
An uncomfortable pause followed. At
last Crane spoke. "I ain't beard whal
it waa you was sorj. about," he said
grimly. "I don't mind snooting a mnn
when I think be deserves It. But confound you, Gabe, t don't know what'i
the matter with you."
"You He!" returned uabrlel delibeo
"That's enough," "remarked Crsne.^
"Count ten."
He drew hla revolver and level i Ua
long bine barrel at bis erstwhile C  and.
Gabriel   did   likewise   i   1   ar wly

There was a blinding flash of powder,
wltb a simultaneous report from the
two weapons. When tbe smoke bad
cleared away the two revolvers were
lying on the sand and tbe antagonists
were each nursing a right arm.
Crane darted forward, snatched np
one of, the weapons with his ' ft hand
and held It close to Gabriel's uearl
"If yon don't tell me what's eating
you," be snarled angrily, "I'll blow
some daylight Into you."
The other glared back at him fiercely. "You mean to say you don't know
what's tbe matter?" he demanded.
"Why would I be asking you, then?"
Gabriel was silent for several seconds; tben he blurted out: "Ifs what
you told Mrs. Padrose. She told m��
what you said tbe night of the doings
to tbe minister's house."
"What did I say?" Crime's face was
"She said you told her I was married
and didn't ought to be paying attention
to respectable widows. That's wbat
she said you said. And it's a blanked
Ile, as you know I never was married
to nobody." Gabriel's hand clasped bis
wonnded arm.
"Of   course   yon   ain't   married,";
breathed Crane heavily aa be dropped
his left hand to his side.   "Hare I.
ever told yon a Ile, Gabe?"
"No," snapped Gabriel.
"Do you believe me wben I any that I
never told that to the Wldder Padrose?"
"Then what's your grouch about?"   I
Gabriel looked helplessly about him.
He saw the jagged rocks, tbe tufts ot
verdure thrusting forth from the cran. j
nles, beard the lilt of tbe bluebird -nd ,
saw the azure sky of tbe new t y.
His eyes dropped to Crane's face,    le j
and drawn with pain, and bis     vn
scowling  countenance   broke  into  a;
crumpled smile of anger and pity.        j
"Dash it all!   Did I wing you, yon
old cherub?   Here!" Tenderly he as- i
slsted Crane to a reclining position,
cut bis sleeve and bandaged the wound

his flask to Crane's compressed lips
and  watched wltb concern bis com- j
rale's efforts to swallow.   Forgetful ot

"What news?"
"The Baptist minister has married

Unstable   No   Longer   Right   Word
Characterize French Temper.
In uu interesting lecture delivered
before tlie Modern Language Association nt South Kensington recently,
Pmf. Caznmiun, ol the University ol
Paris, traced the history oi the change
which lias lately come over the temper
of the French people in su nianjt��di-
rections, politically and otherwise.
The political reputation of France,
he said, was not high in Europe, u
fact which was not to be wondered
at when ihe history of Europe during
the past century was considered, Thu
ordinary Englishman regarded the
word "instability" us the best sum-
ming up of the Frenchman's political
outlook, and us this opinion wus shared by u large number of his countrymen, it was beyond question that
there was something In it.
That political Instability was ascribed, said Proi. CazatnlaU, .to the
traditional character ol tbe French.
man. u man who is portrayed as impatient nnd volatile, eager fnr revolt,
u rebel to discipline, immersed in
abstract theories, contemptuous ol
precedent und custom, always tempted to introduce personalities in the
domain of public affairs, devoid of
perseverance and that laborious patience which was undoubtedly the
foundation of political capacity.
"1 admit," continued the professor,
"that there is a considerable amount
of truth in tbat picture, but Franco
forty years ugo passed through a great
trial, and the men of our generation
instinctively took from their earliest
years a serious view of life. That
experience tended to self-exuinination,
and it is noteworthy that both Kngland
and France have this in common,
thnt both countries, ancient hut not
decrepit, hnve passed through their
youth and are busy investigating their
position, while other countries are
still going through a period of self-
To some extent, lie went on, the
vogue that sport enjoyed nt present
in France, together with Ihe new spirit of adventure which was driving
Frenchmen to seek careers in the
colonies, notably in Morocco, all tended to teach them self-command and
concentration of effort. They were
trying to divide parlies more according to principles, and not personalities, and ministers were obtaining
longer leases of power.
Then again, the professor pointed
out, in France to-day there was among
other changes a much greater respect
for the law. That could be illustrated
in the appeals which were being made
to the good sense oi the crowd, tho
public gardens and open spaces being
placed "under public protection." Nothing, he said, in conclusion, could
show in a clearer light tli is new spirit
in France than the conduct of his
countrymen during the Agadir crisis.
Englishmen were good enough to compliment the French on their behavior
at that time, but the proof of the profound change in the national consciousness was that tlieir attitude,
which appeared splendid to others,
was to themselves quite natural.

A sense of the value of money comes

He was discussing a piece of work
that he had done and telling his mother how much he had been paid for
it. Now, the boy is not yet ten years

was small. To him it looked large,

It will readily be seen that a heavy

or wearing it, very short leaves the
hair at the mercy of atmospheric

hair cannot absorb this unusual
amount of fluid placed at its command the fluid thickens around the

The Scented Court.
"The scented court" was the name
by which the court of Louis XV. wi<
known throughout Europe on account
of the rage for perfume which then
prevailed in France. Tbe. expenditure
of Mme. de Pompadour for tbis one
branch of her toilet amounted to $100,-
(100 annually. It became the fashion
for the host or hostess of a great
entertainment to signalize to their
guests what particular perfume was
to be employed for scenting their
rooms on the night for which the invitations were issued, and they were
expected to use no other, so that the
delicate effect of a unity of odort
might be produced. At court a different perfume waa presented for each
day of the week.
The Fork.
It is about 1,900 years ago since the |
fork made its appearance in Europe.
In 99 A.D. a son of the doge Pielro
Orsolo had wedded in Venice the Briz-
zantine Princess Argils, who produced
at the wedding breakfast a silver fork
and gold spoon.- Then the high Venetian families followed suit, and these
martyrs to fashion pricked their lips
with the new instrument. The fork
prospered, however, and spread over
Italy. In 1579 it had traveled as far
as France, and in 1608 a traveler took
it direct to England.
Voting Terms.
"Ballot," as generally used, has
wandered far from its original meaning of "little ball." Even "blackballing" is no longer necessarily literal.
Language has several fossil relics ol
primitive methods of voting. Most
famous is "ostracism," which perpetuates the memory of tbe "ostrakon,"
the potsherd or shell upon which the
Athenian citizen voted for the banishment of a too prominent personage.
Another instance is "spondulicks,"
Ihe slang word for money. A "spon-
dulos," properly a vertebra of the
spinel came to mean any round thing
and iu particular the voting peddle
or its metal equivalent.

By a member of tlie Hoard of Trade
At the meeting the other night Dr.
Millard promised that the Waterworks
Company would sell their undertaking
to the city, when they wished to huy the
waterworks, at only 6 per cent, premium.
Now, if he were iu a position to n ake
the promise good this would be quite a
good proposition. Hut he will not be.
There are 3500 $10 shares: each share
has a vote in deciding the affairs of the
Company, I>r. Millard aud his friends
only propose to take 25 I of these. There
remain 3250 shares which will lie placed
elsewhere. It is idle to suppose that
many -will he sold locally. The bulk
will be sold outside, in Cumberland,
Victoria and Vancouver, and probably
the Pipe Company will have a large
holding.   Does anyone expect that these
outside shareholders, who have no interest at all in our city, will be content
with anything less than their fair pound
of flesh. The law allows them 30 per
cent, premium, and you may be quite
sure they will get it, every cent. Not
even if the majority of the shares were
held locally could the minority be compelled to sacrifice tlieir shares for 6 per
cent, when the Water Act gives them 30
per cent.
The Saloon Keepers
We have two quite good and respectful
members of the   class here.    They   are,
according to their lights, good   citizens.
But it is inevitable that their business of
selling alcohol brings   them into opposi-
I (ion with the better   feeling of  the com-
] lr.uuity.    The more   that their  business
flourishes  the worse for   the town.    Incorporation   to  them     means    higher
license,   more strict inspection of  their
business.    At   present, by a  weak point
in the law, they pay too low license fees.
The   amount  they pay is   calculated on
the number of people living within a
short radius from their hotel. Where as
we all know the bulk of their business
conies from the logging camps, some
distance away. In the matter of running their houses they can and do act
just as they please. There are days in
the month when the streets of Courtenay are not fit for a woman or child to
walk in, where every few yards there is
the disgusting spectacle of drunken men
trotting about the road, often using
filthy language. When we get our
municipality we will see that our wives
and children can walk our streets in
quiet and decency.
One of the most popular sentiments at
the large and representee meeting the
other night was that 'the drunks made
Courtenay' and that if it wasn't for the
two hotels there would be no Courtenay.
And 1'am afraid our two friends believe
it is true. Because they make more
money and make it more quickly than
any one else in town, they think they
have a right to run the whole show.
They tried to make a start at the meeting. I hope they were satisfied with
the result,
The Cumberland Bogey
It was amusing to see the Waterworks
Company trying to draw the Cumberland men into controversy with the
Courtenay people at the meeting. Cumberland was not to be drawn. They
weren't going to fool themselves just to
please that crowd.
Why is Cumberland so hard up.
There are several minor reasons. But
there is one great big reason which
stares you in the face and puts all the
others in the shade. And that is as you
know, the fact that the water and light
are in private hands, the citizens of
Cumberland are taxed twice over, but
the larger share of the taxes never goes
to the municipal coffers, If the citizens
of Cumberland owned their own water
and light they would not have to pay
one cent of direct taxation at all! The
whole expenses of the city, school and
tax could be met out of the profit of
these two companies!
When the Courtenay Waterworka
Company try to scare you with the Cumberland Bogey they must think you
The High Taxation Bogey
It is a common thing to hear the opponents of incorporation talk as though
an exhorbitant and crippling rate of taxation was an inevitable and fatal doom
that must needs fall on any city rash
enough lo incorporate. That the taxes
wtll jump sky high and that future settlers will avoid the place as if plague
stricken. This is just bunkum. The
rate of taxation and the amount you borrow is in your own hands. If you want
to blossom out into cement sidewalks and
wood paved stieets, parks and street cars
you must expect to pay for them, but if
you remain as you are, sensible and level
headed you can keep your .taxes at a low
rate, aud only cairy out improvements
which you feel you can afford.
In conclusion let me repeat that if it
had not been for the action of the waterworks company we should have been
content to wait another year before incorporating.   But at the same time there is

no doubt we can incorporate now and do
well ou it. If from want of confidence
in our future prosperity and lack of courage to tackle the task of adminstration,
we put off incorporating, we shall pav
for it dearly. For at the best we shall
have to pay 30 per cent more for our
