similar sum, made large Ruins In deposits unci in ourrent loans, opened a

that tlie Hank made current loans of

ii big demand In the country for banking accommodation and that the Bank-
of Montreal is doing its full share In
catering to the business needs of the
communities where Its branches are
The year was the llrst under the general management of Mr. H. V. Meredith and the fact that the profits for
the year were some $242,000 greater
than those of the previous year, must
be regarded as not only satisfactory
to the shareholders, but as complimentary to the foresight and business
sagacity of the General Mnnager. It
is doubtful If the Bank of Montreal
was ever In ns good condition to take
care of the growing needs of the Dominion than It Is al tlie present time.
Its Increase In paid up capital and rest,
accounts, its gain in deposits, total assets and other mutters, makes It peculiarly fitted to take u leading place
In the financial and industrial expansion of the country.

Great  Stormi of  Modern Times
The recent devastation caused by a
hurricane to the Island of Jamaica lias
powerfully affected the popular imagination. Fortunately for us, these
oatastrophles are rare. When they
do occur It Is commonly observed that
they are confined to certain areas, and
that, therefore special peoples ure
more singularly attacked. The Blip-
erstlttous sen in this phenomenon of
nature nothing other than special
judgments of tlie Almighty, while the
practical-minded see only the occurrence of lixed laws.
While this ij in mind, therefore, it.
may be Interesting to recall to mind
other notable storms cf a disastrous
nature. Few middle-aged p< ople can
forget Ihe terrible night In 18711 when
the Tay Bridge, a lingo structure of
steel wickerwork near the estuary of
tlie Tay at Dundee. Scotland, was
swept by a tremendous gale, blowing
at the rate of 150 miles an hour, and
precipitated In the water. Tills, in
itself would have been a dreadful blow
to what, was then in Hie light of engineering science, considered to be
an Imperishable monument to the genius of man. lint dreadful to relate, a
train journeying from Edinburgh tol
Aberdeen, wns ploughing its way
through the storm In the very middle
of the structure and along with six I
hundred yards out of the two miles of I
sieel framework was burled Into tho
Tay. No one lived to record the'
dread experience.
An older generation will doubtless,
remember the terrible series of hurricanes of 1868, which swept over Centra! Europe, devastating everything op-1
posed lo It and leaving wreck nnd
ruin behind. Peculiarly enough It did;
not proceed far west. Obeying the
dictates of some as yet. inscrutable
law. il spent Its force somewhere in!
mid Atlantic, nnd America nnd Can-1
adn were saved the force nf its gus's.
Old country people resident In Canada will remember the hurricane tbat
swept over Kngland on Ihe 14th October, 1881, when houses were thrown
down and unroofed, large trees torn
up by Ihe roots like plavthings, telegraph  wires and  poles blown  down,
and   in   addition   to  a   great   loss  of
life, about 150 British wrecks of shipping.      In  the samp year, and  peculiarly enough in the same monih, followed what is commonly regarded asj
the great, hurricane of history, In Hiii-|
fong, in China, a  typhoon  broke out, j
raged for days and carried off to their j
doom tlie alarming total   of   300.000,
Doubt was at first east on this total, j
but a subsequent census revealed its
accuracy.    Then   two   years   later   a
tornado In the Southern States carried !
off 600 people, followed In 1885 by a j
cyclone on the Orissa coast, Bengal,
India, in which 5.000 people perished,
A storm, which was attended with
a tidal wave nearly blotted out Wellington, New Zealand, in 1888, and to'
come nearer home, Ontario and Que-
bee were the scenes of storms of wind
accompanied by thunder, in the same
year, which cost* tbree provinces $2,-
000,000. Oil" could rn on mnltlplv-
Ing Instances innumerable but the re-
cent event In Jamaoln promnts one to
recall the cyclone there In lnni), when
the British government granted a j
large sum to rcbabltate and restore
the condition of the planters.

Mr. M. Brennan, an ex-sergeant uf
���he 2nd Cheshire Regiment, now a
resident of Winnipeg, Man-., says:
"While serving with mv regiment in
India, on a hill station, I contracted a
severe cold which brought on acute
neuralgia, at times lasting for three
weekx. I was constantly suffering
almost every month In the year for
over seven years, the pain being some-
times so severe that I wished I was
dead. On my return to England I
seemed to get no better, though I
spent large sums of money for medical advice and medicine. Then I
came to Canada, and about a year ago
saw the advertisement of Drr. Williams' Pink Pills in a Winnipeg paper. Although I had begun to think
my complaint was incurable I told my
wife that I intended giving the Pills
a fair trial. I was suffering from
terrible pains when I began taking
the Pills, but before the second box
was finished tlie pain began to disappear, and under a further use of the
Pills it disappeared entirely, and I
have not had a twinge o" It during
the past year. Only those who have
been afflicted with the terrible pains
of neuralgia can tell what a blessing
Dr. Williams' Pink Pills have been to
me. and you may be sure I shall constantly recommend them to other sufferers."
These Pills are sold by a'l medicine
dealers or by mail at 50 cents a box

What Is The Result?
The spout becomes filled and there Is a genera'

to rake off a little fortune and he succeeds He
simply takes all the profit that under normal conditions, the farmer would have got In the growing

The only feasible solution of the question Is In
organizing the farmers that they may be able to
put the cost of production on the article he produces. Every other producer Is able to do it

This is the latest and most powerful rifle of the so-called automatic
type. It has more power than the
.30 Army rifle. This power, combined with its unequalled rapidity
of fire, makes it exceptionally effective for hunting big-game. It Is
simple in construction and operation and all its metal parts are
made of Nickel Steel. The name
"Winchester "on it guarantees it

incapable of sane judgement on any
matter even renio.ely connected
with politics. His fixed idea has
been brooded over by an ill-balanced
mind so loug, that it is probably
imbedded in some physiological
alterations in Ihe brain structure,
which greatly diminishes his responsibility, if it does not   entirely
remove it."    And all this   because,     ����"������� v�� *J����-��4' jiuuoc

or window easing which is plumb,
The window, oi course, must face
more or less southwards. Then,
on a sunny day, get the standard
time iu some way and find from a
good almanac what allowance to
make for local noon. At exact
local noon mark a line on the window sill where the shadow of the
cadng edge falls.
If this lie done properly you will
have a permanent meridian and
plumb line for daily reference.
This will always be reliable, provided the window remains plumb,
aud the house does not shift its
position bv reason of sinking, blasting, wind etc. All you then require is is a reliable almanac to
give the allowance for each day.
One can by this means easily keep
his watch within one or two minutes of standard time.
On my own window I have a
very fine wire with a plumb bob attached. The bob is protected by a
box iu which it swings free. The
wire throws a shadow along the
meridian at noon. The meridian is
marked by fine dots on the top of
the box. Both the wire and the
dots are so fine that one needs a
magnifying glass to watch them.
I claim that it is possible in this
way to get withiu fifteen seconds of
standard time.

Courtenay City Council
The regular meeting of the council took place in the town hall last
evening, with the Reeve, Mr.
Joseph McPhee in the chair. All
the Alderman were present. The
minutes of last meeting were read
and adopted. The Chairman of the
Finance Committee reported the
successful sale of the debentures of
the Corporation of the Municipality of Courtenay, in London. The
fifty-thousand dollars beii g taken
by one firm at 77. The sum, now
being at the disposal of the city, it
was moved by Alderman Farseeing
that the work of the Lighting and
Water Committees be taken up immediately, also the laying of cement sidewalks on Union street,
from the bridge to the Cumberland
road be turned over to the lowest
tenderer, and work commenced
right away; carried. The question
of putting a.e lamps on the bridge,
across the Courtenay River then
came up. It was moved by Mr.
��� Morelight, seconded by Push, that
the city clerk call for tenders for 2
lamps tor the bridge, and some ten
I or twelve more for Union street;
carried. The Chairman of the
Board of Works reported that the
work of installing the sewer system
in the hands of the Vancouver firm
was progressing rapidly, and
would be finished in a few days.
The city clerk read a communication from one of the wealthy farmers, offering the city a 40 acre field
! for exhibition and   recreation pur-
F| poses.   As this was the second of-
fer of this kind it was turned   over
II to the Park Commissioners to de-
, cide which was the most desireable.
' A communiction was then read
1 from the Department, at Victoria,
1 offering the city a grant of twenty-
thousand dollars towards the new
, hospital.   As this was five-thous-
land below what was expected,   it
was decided to have a red tag day
I to raise the other fifeen hundred to
clear off the remaining debt on the
hospital. There being no other
business the Council then adjourned. /
Standard Time
Editor Courtenay Review,
Sir,���I have been carrying on a
series of experiments at Courtenav
during ihe last two years in order
to find some way of getting and
keeping standard time. Perhaps a
brief article on the subject may interest some of your readers.
Before the telephone was introduced people here had to take the
time from steamer whistles or from
the purser or captain. Some people
people still go by the whistles of
logging camps or sawmills or set
their watches by sotnejvisitors from
town. While some of these may
be reliable, yet some do not always
agree with each other. However
one can, as a rule, get fairly accurate time from the telephone or
telegraph offices, but not always to
a minute.
However much other sources
may vary, there is one upon which
we can always depend, I mean
the sun's shadow at exact local
noon. This always falls on the
meridian. After one has found
local noon in this way it is easy to
calcuate from it the standard noon
by adding twenty minutes. Courtenay noon is twenty minutes later
than standard noon, (no reflections
on Courtenay.)
The only difficulties in the way
of getting the time by this means
are first, to mark your meridian
line accurately; and second, to arrange a needle, or a cord or straight
edge in such a way that it shall be
absolutely plumb and shall cast a
shadow on the meridian at exact
local noon.
The easiest plan I know of for
finding local noon is to use the
[ shadow cast by the edge of a door

What Is Behind Courtenay?

P.O. Box 100 Phone 10
Editor Courtenay Review
Courtenay, B. C.
Dear Sir:
I read with pleasure Mr
Campbell's articles on   the
subject in   your   newspaper
weeks ago.    While  Mr.  Campbell
handles the subject   in a pleasing
manner upon a literary viewpoint,
yet, it seems to me that more might
be said from the practical side, and,
if you have space in your valuable
paper, allow me to  trespass   on a
small portion of that space.   What
is  realy behind   Courtenay.     Il
, seems to me that  perhaps, among
other things, there  are  two  very
important  factors behind Courtenay.   The first I may   mention  is
the undeveloped natural wealth underlying the valley.   This, so far,
has proved a hard   proposition  to
handle by the people of the valley,
and, undoubtedly will continue to
be so for some time   to   co 'ie,  so
that,   in    the   developetnent   of
Courtenay, in the near   future,   at
any rate, we must not  expect too
much   from   the  minerals.     The
other factor that is behind Courtenay, is the agricultural lands of the
district, and this seems a question
with which we can cope, and through it, we can, to a   great   extent
make   or   unmake   the  future of
Courtenay much more permanently
and much more substantially   than
the advent of a railway.   Just to
the extent that the farmers of   Co-
,mox District prosper.    Just to the
j extent that the earning capacity of
those farmers increase to the  same
measure will their opportunity   for
spending be, and to  that  extent
and no further will   Courtenay  be
anything (permanently   at   least.)
Some years ago a valley lady and I
were discussing farming.  She said,
citing from   her  own   experience,
"The greatest   trouble   with   our
farming is, our income is not large
enough.''   That remark seems  to
hit most  of   us   pretty  hard.   I
would like then to start   a  discussion through your   paper on "The
Best Methods to Improve Our In

years this improvement has to some
extent taken place.    Let   us  look
then for the reasons, aud try, from
past experience, to push   our conquests to greater victories.  I think
the most important of these is the
improved   methods   of   marketing
our produce.    Take   for   instance
our cream, instead of fifty to seventy farmers turning that cream into
a variety of grades of butter,   different in   color,   flavor,   etc.,   at
home  and   then   competing   with
each other .in selling it in a limited
market for cash,   or   overstocking
the general stores with it,   in   exchange for goods.    The cream of
these fifty  to seventy   farmers  is
taken to the creamery, where tt   is
manufactured into No. i grade   ot
creamery butter, and then properly
put on to a good market for   cash,
the farmers getting   their cheques
regularly.    This. I   think,   means
more to the valley than any  other
In our meat, fruit, vegetables
and pouliry we have made a beginning on the same co-operative
lines, which need pushing further,
particularly to determine the quantity of these comodities available
for the market, and their actual
market value, locally and elsewhere. A fact that we farmers
have some difficulty in determining. I believe, Sir, that the time
has come (owing to the large demand .locallf' and tfie mucn  larger
demand in   our cities)   when 'we
farmers could improve   our farms,
field by field, and  our incomes at
the same time, by going extensive-  '
ly into the raising potatoes and other vegetables, but, unless the growing of these is done systatnatically,
unless the marketing of the same is
clone- on a truly co-operative principle, so that it would insure to the
consumer a good  uniform article,
transfered from the grower to the
consumer at the   smallest   possible
cost, and arranging so   that   every
bag of potatoes etc., could be easily
traced to the producer, unless these
particular are conscientiously attended to I am  afraid   it  would
spell failure.   I   believe,   Sir,   we
nted just  a  little   more  of  that
spirit among us of trying to make
two blades of grass   grow  where
only one grew before (i.e.; it would
need to be clover these  days,   instead of grass) and   after  growing
it by systimatic proceedings  turning it into some comodity that is in
demand, this comodity to   be  put
onto the market so as to insure the
least possible loss to  the producer.
or consumer.
Hoping, Sir, that these few lines
may be the means of starting a dis�� i
cussion among my brother farmers
with good results in furtherance of *
co-operation. i
Yours sincerely,
Sandwick ] 11

Mr. and Mrs. l.ni'iiis cliffe were
favoured, on Friday, January 17,
with a call from a surprise party,
hailing from comox. Some thirty
people assembled and were received with homely hospitality. Music
and dancing provided one of the
chief I'eantlires and the morning
was well advanced before host and
hostess allowed the guests to depart.
In addition to the surprise party
at Mrs. Bridges, on Monday January 1.1, another large party assembled at Mr. and Mrs. Lucius
Cliffe's and had a fine time. These
young people certainly make the
most of the festive season.
Any parishioners who would
care to join in the presentation to
Mr. ,'illemar, in addition to those
already recorded, can do so aud
their offering will be thankfully
receieved and acknowledged if sent
to Mrs. Bridges, or to the churchwardens. The wide extent of the
d trict caused many to be overlooked in the personal canvass
hence this explanation.
In addition to the presentation
made to the Rev. J. X. willemar,
recorded iu these columns last
week, a work g "bee" is contemplated to help clear th site of Mr.
willemar's new house, and to haul
gravel for the building. Labor has
been given already, but much
more can be utilized.

"I.t's nil jin -mil tinvM some lea

led the Willing buck to the lee crenin

where her homo was The I lulled land
Sloped away ou nil  Sides and formed
sumo pastures ami admirable vegetable
gardens nnd afforded  excellent drain- I
u^e for the house and gulden un tbeI
I.ettlce  had a  garden  of roses and
old fashioned HowerH and a scattering
of tall, gracefully drooping elms about
tier while house, and she lived there
contentedly alone with her neither, a
gentle Invalid. These four afternoons
at the county fulr bad been Ihe llrst
trout I.ettlce hnd enjoyed for several
years, and now sbe would not have
been able to take advantage of the
merrymaking If an mint from another
village bad tint volunteered to take ber
place at the bedside.
Now. walking slowly up the hill toward liitf home. I.ettlce determined that
she would not witness another flight
of tbe balloon.
If others did not recognize In the Intrepid Professor; Aerolo their one time
acquaintance Owen Baldwin. I.ettlce
Hallett's loving eyes did not deceive her.
Tbe next day I.ettlce did not go to
the fair. Mrs. Adams, her aunt, decided to return home, and when sbe
went away she kissed I.ettlce very I
tenderly. "I hope you'll he happy, my
dear," she said; "you've been a good
Lettlce smlled-she seldom laughed���
"I am happy, Aunt Becky," she said
"I should hnve said 1 hope you will ;
be happier!" and  with the lust word
Aunt Becky drove away,
"I.ettlce." said her mother that afternoon, "when the balloon ascension occurs will you go Inlo the garden and
watch It so as lo describe it to me
when you come lu?"
"Yes, mother," suld I.ettlce obediently.
At 4 o'clock she went Into the rose
garden, where one could look away
over to the high hill from which tlie
balloon ascensions were made, Her
heart was beating rapidly, and a pretty
pink color flickered In her cheeks.. To
I.ettlce Hallctt It was not I'rofcssor
Aerolo who was making the daring
ascent, but It wns her first and ouly
lover, Owen Baldwin.
All at once the dark shape shot upward and. Influenced by a strong northwest wind, came straight toward I.ettlce Hallett's garden. Away up In tho
air was the tiny speck of humanity
which would trust itself once more to
the hazardous parachute.
A little to the west of Hallett's hill
the  man cut the  rope  and  dropped.
1 Then a nine parachute came sailing
gently down, growing larger and larger
j snd coming straight down Into Lettice'��
rose garden.
j Lettlce. saw the brilliantly clad figure
of Professor Aerolo gently alight In
ber rose garden und stand in that very
path where her father bad surprised
their first and last kiss.
Lettlce leaned agaiust a tree and
stared at him, colorless aud trembling.
! He looked dowu at her from Owen
Baldwin's true blue eyes and took off
the gray wig.
I.ettlce looked at the .ear blue eyes
and tbe sunny hair, now more deeply
tinted than bet- tender memory had recalled, aud tears tilled her own soft
brown eyes, aad she bid them in ber
little hands.
i Owen Baldwin drew the hands away
���nd looked In Lattice's face. "Yon
bave not forgotten," he said simply.
"Neither have I, Lettlce. 1 have wanted to come before, hut I pictured yon
as happily married long ago, nnd I
did not dare Investigate. I am such a
!    "You  a  coward?"   repeated   Lettlce
incredulously, her cheek  against one
of his scarlet clad sleeves.
"Ob, you mean this business?   That
! needs an explanation, Lettlce.   I went
j away   with  tbe  circus  as  a   hostler.
I Nothing very romantic about that, eb?
[ Then I fell In with a balloonist���Pro-
i fessor Aerolo he called himself���and ho
taugbt me the business. I had nerve
and a cool head, and I did very well,
but It did uot appeal to me as a life
profession, for I was determined to
make all of you Wbeatlanc people
proud of me. Lettlce, no one may ho
proud of me, but tbey have no need to
��� bo ashamed. Yon bave heard of 0.
William Baldwin, the landscape gardener? That's I, Lettlce."
"Yon?" gasped Lettlce In wonder.
"Yes. A few weeks ago 1 came upon
my old friend. Professor Aerolo. Ill

attack ot rheumatism and could not

"I did. Owen."
"And I bn|ied yon���cared. Lettlce"
"I did���1 do, Owen," Confessed I.ettlce In lively.
"Yesterday, while yon were away, I

I told her all uhoiit It nnd asked If sho

"Or for me either." whispered Lettlce    "Let us go lu and fell mother."

entering a certain harbor, tbe Herman
emperor on one occasion tried to assert
bis authority aud rang the bell for
"Full speed ahead." To his great surprise, the pilot, an old Norwegian
named Nurdliuus, wbo knew the dangerous character of the channel, placed himself in thu way and, leaning
over the wheel, called down the tube
to the engine room, "Half speed ahead
���never mind tbe bell!"
"What! You dure to countermand
my orders?" cried ihe Impetuous monarch, again ringing the bell.
"Disregard tbe bell," calmly repeated Nordhuns through the tube.
for a moment tbe kaiser glared at
tbe intrepid pilot, and then, drawing
himself up to bis full height, said majestically, "Go below, sir, and report
yourself under arrest"
"Leave the bridge!" thundered the
Norwegian grimly, as be grasped the
wheel more llrudy. "This ship is lu

Oily Petrele.
Various sea birds, especially the petrels, contain a large amount of oil In
their tissues, and for this reason are
greatly valued by the Inhabitants of
the Scottish coasts, who obtain from
them "oil for their lamps, down for
their beds, a delicacy for their table, a
balm for their wounds and a medicine
for tbelr distemper." On tbe Island of
St. Klldn as many as 20,000 birds are
killed In the one week of the year
when this killing Is legal. So rich In
oil are some of these birds tbat their
bodies can he used as lamps If wicks

Mark Twain Provad Thnt Hi. Old Tims

"Oh, nothing much���a so called funny book. One of these days I'll write
a funnier bouk than tbat myself."
Browuell laughed.
"No, you won't Sam." be said. "You
are too luzy ever to write a book."
A good many years later, when the
name Mark Twain bad begun to stand
for American humor, the owner of It
gave his "Sandwich lslauds" lecture
In Keokuk. Speaking of the unreliability of the Islanders, he said:
"The king Is, I believe, the grentest

The Climax to Paliaay's Sixteen Years
of Misery.
The maker of porcelain and pottery
has decidedly the most exciting and
romantic trade tn the world.
Tbe great factories of Sevres and
Dresden were founded by Bernard Pal-
Issy. Tbls man invented white enamel,
but It took him sixteen years to make
the Invention���sixteen years of hunger, misery nnd persecution, which culminated In the episode, used In II. A.
Jones' play of "Tbe Middleman,"
wherein Pnllssy maintained his furnace
fire hy burning all the furniture In his
house and Anally opened the furnace
door to Und within the glnze which be
hnd sought throughout the best years
of his life.
Bottgber Invented hard porcelain.
He was an alchemist, and one day.
chancing to discover that his powdered
wig wns unusually heavy, he Inquired
the cause and found that the weight
was due to the kaolin with which the
wig was powdered. This kaolin was
tbe substance for lack of which Bott-
gber's Investigations had for years
When Elers opened a porcelain factory at Burslem, England, be employed
the most stupid and Illiterate workmen, so that his secret processes might
hot become known. But Samuel Ast-
bury resolved to learn the Elers method, and. affecting Ignorance and stupidity, he got a place In the factory,
mastered all of Elers' secrets and eventually opened a plant of his own,
wherein he duplicated In every detail
tbe work of Elers.
Terms of Venery.
There are terms of venery which a
good sportsman will still observe In
his speech. Thus be finds a "pnek" or
a "covey" of grouse and likewise a
"covey" uf partridges, but a "uld" of
pheasants, a "bevy" of qunll. a "wisp"
or a "walk" of snipe and a "fall" of
wuudcock. Having found them, ho
"springs" the grouse and tbe phess-
ants, hut "flushes" the woodcock, suipe
and partridges. Further, be will tell
you that grouse are "challenged" and
pheasants "cbuckered," that partridges
"Jug," quails "pipe," woodcocks aro
"fallers" and snipe are "at walk." So
tbe blsbop was strictly correct wbo
spoke of "some who Jug themsoJvea
like partridges Into email coveys."���

For Tras Wounds.
In California tbe following mixture
was used on trees three years ago and
Is still In good condition: One part of
crude petroleum to three parts of rosin:
warm In separate dishes, mix and apply warm to cuts made by pruning or
by cultivutor Injury. While this mixture Is uot better than grafting wax, It
Is much cheaper aud la worthy of trial.
High Priced Copy.
During tbe siege of Kiiuberley the
editor of the only dally paper there
was often bard put to find enough
news. One day in a clnbroom be found
Cecil Rhodes reading a fairly new paper from Cape Town. He borrowed It
and rushM to his own office, where it
soon reappeared as a special edition,
selling like hot cakes. That same evening be met Rhodes, wbo Inquired,
"Wbere'B ray Cape Town paper?" "Oh.
1 cut It up for tbe printers," was the
reply. "Please don't do that again."
said Rhodes mildly. "That paper came
through by native runners and cost
me $1,000."

the execution of putting Captain
Cutter aboard the bt.rge James j
Dunsmuir as she lay at her anchorage, the weather being bad and a
big sea running; and Adolph only |
being master of a skiff; suddenly
she shipped a big sea, engulfing
both occupants with water. In the
meantime Captain Cutter began to
get seasick, much to the horror of
poor Adolphus, who was not feeling
well himself from the results of the
previous night's rye. Still he hung
on aud labored hard to make a
landing but his efforts were in vain.
Adolph bracing himself gamely
shouts to the Captain "you have no
edication. You make me sick."
By this time they were in itniuent
danger and Capt. Jones, S.S. Clay-

they were in, made haste to the
