erected on the north end. Tne
work will be started at once.
A number of young ladies had
a delightful walk and pici ia along
the banks of the Ptintligc river on
Monday afternoon, While some of
them puddled barefooted in the
river an industrious photographer
made half a dozen snap shots, and
they were all made on one film.
Mr. Clements M. P., was at

Word was received here en Monday that Harry F. Urine the popular
agent of the Acadia Trust Co. here,
was badly hurt iu an automobile
accident in Vancouver on Saturday.
He is reported to have been thrown
about 40 feet, and to have sustained
a broken knee cap and other severe injuries.
The latest from the f 11 Country
ts a strike of farm laborers, and that
cabbages in Liverpool market are
selling at 200 per cent above normal.
Why don't the farmers and their
sons in tbe old country do more
manual labor themselves same as is
done by British Columbia farmers,
who on account of the high cost
cannot afford to employ hired labor?
Here is a typical case of an English
gentleman who came here three
years ago, who with lv's son 11
years of age rises every morning at
4.30 a.m. to attend to the chores,
the work which Teddy tlie 11 year
o'd son does before making for
school is:
Up at 4.30 a.m. and never has to
be called, lights the fire, lays the
breakfast table and makes the porridge practices the piano for half an
hour then helps his father to milk
the cows, lie milks three out of the
eight, afterwards assists with the
separating, breakfast at 7.30.
Isn't Teddy a good boy?
If any Lrmer in the Comox Va ley
can go one better than this tlie
editor of this paper will be glad to
be advised.

erected, which were loaded with
viands, cakes, pies, salads and otiier
foods tco numerous to mention.
After a hearty lunch, many went
to see the field sports, while some
took a stroll through the park.
After the sports were over many
went to the M. 1. A. Hall where
the light fantastic were indulged
in until the small h mis of the
morning. Not a little of the success
of the picnic is due lo the efforts ol
Mr. vVin. Baikie and Messrs, S, J.
Dumaresq, T. Chalmers and Jas,
Piercy. The first on the program
for sports are the boys races us

sports there was a spirited game of
base ball between Mr. Wm. Baikie's
team and Mr. S. J. Dumaresq's
team, the former won with a ��;core
of 4 to the latters 3. Of more interest and exciting than any of the
athletic sports was the tug of war
between a team of married men
and a team of single men, after a
long and strenuous pull it was pronounced a draw.

Unioa Street
Courtenay
Royston
On Sunday evening the 13th inst
about ti a.m. Mr. Moore, of Moore
&  Pettick,   and  party    travelling
from Cumberland in his motor cari
to his camp near Union Bay, came j
down to Royston across the  Can- i
adian    Colleries  Railway  crossing I
and with gas cut off took the steep
and dangerous corner leading down
to the Island Highway,  when his;
car skidded from near the  top of 1
the   Railway  bank down   to the1
bottom across the main road  and
into the ditch and stone wall fence j
on the sea side of the main road j
throwing out his child and one of
the men of his party, whose escspe I
practically unhurt, was wonderful
in the circumstances, i
The car had the two near side
wheels ripped off and considerable,
other ii jury done the machine.
This piece of road has nearly caused
several bad accidents and is in a disgracefully dangerous state in respect
of the bend rcund the track and
the short steep declivity that follows down the bank to the main
road as well as by the angle which
it takes to it.
It was pointed out to the Provincial Government by residents
some three months ago that this
crossing 011 the new electrc rr.ilway
belonging to the Canadian Co leries
from No. 8 Mine to Trent 1'ridge
was a death trap, resulting in a
promise from the Colleries Co, that
thev would make it O.K. We
recognize that the Colleries Co. is
woiklng at high pressure just now,
at the same time it is only right
that they should immediatley make
the road as safe as it was before
they made tlieir railway acoss it
By doing this they will relit ve the
anxiety of the users of this dangerous crossing.

Mr. McLachlan the Government
Engineer inspected the site of this
a fortnight ago, since which he has
had plans and specifications prepared, aud it is expected tl at tenders will be called for very shortly.

Feruie, B. C. July 14.���The
local press and Board of Trade have
opened a campaign against real
estate sharks peddling worthless
sub-division lots to credulous work-
ingmeu and women. As a result of
au indignation meeting, an information office has been established
and the gross misrepresentation of
real estate wild-catters will be
mercilessly aired and prosecutions
are expected in a few days.
The intelligence office has already
many pathetic  instances of   pcor'
people who havebeen denying them-!
selves the necessities of life in order
to meet payments on property that |
is not worth one twentieth the price
that is being paid for it.

were charged with vagrancy and
were sentenced to 20 days days in

$20 for shooting without a license.
He had a fresh deer skin, an eagle
and several birds in his possession,
besides three guns. The case of
Mrs. Lewis against W. G. McKean
was dismissed.
Owing to the down pour of rain
all day Saturday the Orange picnic
did not materalize. The lodge room
was* kept open all day and considerable business was done. The ladies
made merry in the Agricultural
hall across the way. About five
o'clock the rain slacked off enough
for the brethren to march up Union
street with banners flying and
drums beating. Afterwards they
had lunch in the hall and dispersed.
Everybody hopes for better weather
next year.
