The nulla themselves wero brittle, and dry,

llngera were eii__lvoly palnfut causing
el_l>|p_ night- I was treated for about
threo months and the nails grew twain but
away from the flesh of the fingers and then
fell off again.
"Having heard a great deal ot Cuticura
Soap and Ointment I sent for a sample of
both ln the hope of their healing my lingers
which were very painful. At night after
washing my hands well wltb the Cuticura
Soap I rubbed the Cuticura Ointment alt
around the linger ends and wore gloves to
proven^ the Ointment from being rubbed off,
thon again in Iho morning washed my hand?
with the Cuticura Soap. Tho Cuticura
Soap and Ointment had a cooling effect and
after using them for a short while I was surprised to feel fingers much less soro and
beginning to assume a more healthy appearance; the fungus which had grown under tlio
old nails disappeared and then new strong
nails formed. This troublo had lasted about
eighteen months before using Cuticura Soap
and Ointment yet after using same for three
months my finger nails bad grown strong
and complslnt had entirely gone." (Signed)

1 did not like to force Margery's
confidence, but I believed that the outrage was directly for the purpose of
starching ber room, perhaps for papers' that had been her father's. .Mrs.
Butler came around enough by morning to tell a semlconnected story, in
which sho claimed that two men liad
como in from a verandah roof and
tri'-d to chloroform ber.
The inability of Margery Fleming to
tell who had chloroformed her, and
Mrs. lhitler's white face and brooding
eyes made a very respectable mystery
out. of the affair. Only Fred, Kdlth

A reverend canon of tho Angellcan

fell to his lot to marry his ;'ootman to
his cook. Tbo footman would persist
throughout the servi. .0 in putting bis
linger to his forehead every time his
master addressed him, in accordance
with custom. Tbe reverend gentleman remonstrated ln an undertone:
Don't touch your forehead, John, but
say the words after me. Then aloud:
Wilt thou (alio this woman to bo thy
wedded wife? etc.
John, bearing in mind Uie canon's
hint, replied: After you, sir! nud the

place this industry on a profit producing basis without Increasing the cost
to the consumer, and In fact, if the
scheme works well, a reduction may
be expected, it is proposed to have
nine branches of this association; the

dreadfully expensive to yott.

companies have informed us that this is
tlie last straw and they will absolutely
refuse all freight for this place until
river is cleared of sunken menaces. In
a very short time this district will be up
against a shortage of feed anil other

operations and increasing tlie cost on all

ton. This looks to us like a case of
absolute neglect on the part of the
Government as the amount that has been

At Salmon  River
Messrs. Sackville brothers, Graham and Ahlin have just returned
from a trip to the Salmon Rivei-
District where they have been looking over the laud thrown open for
pre-emption by the Provincial
Government. About 50 blocks of
40 acres were available, they looked carefully over the country but
came to the conclusion that outside
of a few blocks the others were not
worth the trouble of pre-empting.
They were in the queue at the
Land Registry office at Vancouver

The reception given in the honor
of Mother Irene (the Mother

hospital was a great tuccess.
There was a large number of people
there, Tea was provided by the
ladies of the Altar Society, and
music and singing made things
lively,    Fveryone had a good time.
Numbers of people are complaining about losing their cats,
some supposed to have been shot,
and some done to death by cruel
boys, with stones. We are informed that it i.s a serious thing to
kill domestic animals aud that the

J. P , with stealing tools, the
property of Geo. ��>oan. Evidence
was given by Timekeeper Jenkins.

of loaning tools to Jackson. Constable Hannav also gave evidence
to show he had visited Mr. Ley-
bum's ranch at Comox, and there
found the tools alledged to have
been stolen. Neither Cliffe nor

A shocking shooting affair took
place on the Main Island Highway,
tit about 9.10 last Thursday morning, close to Oyster River, when
Robert Suttie shot and killed Ric-
hard Hargreaves, road boss on the
Government Road.
Suttie and Hargreaves had words
early in the morning and Suttie
was overheard to say "I will get
you and you will be road boss no
longer after to-day." Hargreaves
took his men out about 7 a. in. aud
was heard to say jokingly "Suttie
has gone for a gnu to shoot me."
He evidently did uot take Suttie
seriously und little knew the deadly purpose iu his mind, Suttie
then walked to Oyster River Hotel
and got a rifle which Ue had left
there, he walked back towards
Oyster River bridge, meeting Hargreaves on the road he opcued fire
on him but missed, Hargreaves ran
down the road, and W. Storie, who
was working on the road aud heard
the shot was an eye witness of the
finish of the tragedy. Suttie covered
Storie and told him to keep out,
aud then raised the gun and shot
at Hargreaves who was uot more
than 60 feet distant Hargreaves
fell immediately aud Storie rau to
letch the gaug. Dr. Jamieson of
Campbell River was summoned and
pronounced life extinct, deceased
had lived about 3 minutes after
being shot.

With reference to his Wingham
visit the "Advance" of that place,
publishes the following.
This week Wiiigliain was honored with a visit by her first school
master, in the person of Mr. John
Mundeil of British Columbia. Mr.
Mundeil is on his way back to
British Columbia from a visit at
liis birth place in Dumfriesshire,
Scotland, and is spending a short
time with his relatives in Turn-
berry, Culross, and Teeswater. In
I1861 Mr, Muudell came from his
home east of Toronto lo the Queens
Hush in Turnberry, and was engaged as school teacher iu school
section number ten, Turnberrv,
which Is better known as Holmes'
.school house, Wingham was then
known as the town plot and had no
schoolliouse, but the children went
to Holme's school .louse where
Mr. Mundeil was teaching. After
there were a sufficient number of
children in the Town Plot, a school
house was erected, and Mr. Mundeil was invited to be the first
school master.   This was in  1863.
He taught two years in the  Town
Plot and then went  to  Teeswater,
where he taught one year.    Mr.
Mundeil then attended the Normal
school at Toronto where he obtained a life certificate for Ontario,
and while there attended a Commercial   College,  after which  he
entered University to study for the
Ministry,  but through overstudy
and close  confinement  his  health
gave out, and he  was  advised by
his   physician   to    seek    another
climate.    He   decided   to   go   to
British Columbia.    In those days
there   were   uo    transcontinental
railways and he had to go to  New
York,   then   by   steamer to   the
Isthmus of Panama and enroute,
visited the West Indies,  Mexico'
etc.   He crossed   the Isthmus of
Panama and then taking a steamer,
visited California on the way, and
eventually   landed   in  Vancouver
Island, where he has resided over
forty years.    He arrived in British
Columbia in 187', being the year
in which that Province entered the
Confederation, and after teaching
17 years,  bought a farm of f75
acres, later selling 160 of timbered
land, and  retaining 15 acres for
intensive   farming,   engaging   in
poultry, fruit,  etc.    Mr.  Mundeil
is very enthusiastic as to the future
of British Columbia, believing that
her natural icsources are a wonderful asset.    While 78 years of age,
lie is hale and hearty and will return to his home in the spring.   In
the  meantime he is making his
home with Miss  Margaret Rome,
his niece of Teeswater.    He is an
extensive traveller, having crossed
tlie Atlantic seven times.   His old
students in Wingham will no doubt
be pleased to learn of his success
in   that   new   land.   While    in
Wingham Mr-  Mundeil was the
guest of Mr. R. A.  Graham,  who
was teaching in Wroxeter at the
time he was teaching in Wingham-

Sir;���I read with interest yonr
re narks recently anent the
Oriental question, and considered
them timely. With your permission, I should like to say a few
words ou the question.
The history of the Chinaman in
this country has been one of unspeakable fiendish crimes, which
for the most part pass seemingly
unheeded, aud has, so far at least,
failed to stir our people to a true
realization of the dreaded ' 'ye_.o v
peril" which is, or should be a
matter for serious consideration,
The "Chink" by nature is a
moral degenerate of the lowest
type, utterly devoid of principle,
lackintr in everything pertaining
to a civilized life, but endowed with
the repulsive instincts of the lower
animals; aside from these he may
be alright--in China,
The Government wisely offer a I
reward or bounty on wolves because '
of their destructivenes to animal

Courtenay Review
Dear Sir:���lu reply to Mr.
Cameron's statement in your paper
that the Sisters Hospital at Comox
being denominational could not
obtain a Government grant, I wish
to say that Mr. Cameron is very
much mistaken; as the Comox
Hospital is undenominational, and
is, and was, at the time he wrote
the letter, receiving the Government grant. As Mr. Manson states
it would be impossible for the
Sisters to receive the Goevrnment
grant if they ran a denominational
hospital, but they never had any
such intention, as all their hospital
(aud thev have a large number in
Ontario) are absolutely undenominational; as for his statement, that
thev do not take any but well
paying patients, I think Mr.
Cameron will find if he enquires
into the' matter, that no patients,
however poor they may be, are
ever turned away from a Hospital
owned by the Sisters of St. Joseph.

Lisping In Golden Numbers.
There bare been so many big cases
fn the British law courts during the
past tew months that speculation has
been rife as to the Incomes made by
fashionable K.C.'s. It ls not unusual
for a prominent lawyer to pocket
$100,000 a year, and yet the majority of them are quite willing to make
financial sacrifices In eflper ta. attain
Cabinet rank.
Nowadays Mr. F. B. Smith appears
te be engaged for every big case, and
oft-tines he keeps several cases going
on tbe same day. His Income must
be of handsome proportions, and yet
be Is certain to take Cabinet office
wben tbe Tories return to power,
though his income will only be something like a fourth ot what it is now.
It is questionable, however, with all

Just as be returned from the Boei

The crowned l.fiids of Britain, foi

that agriculture is the basi* uf * country 's prosperity,
For several yours past many of the
big prizes at the Smitbfleld Show,
London, have hern awarded to the
fanner sovereign, whoso exhibits aro
always a feature of Ibe show.

George HI, was an exhibitor at the
great show, but failed to secure a

York was successful. Queen Victoria
won many trophies, being awarded

In (he show In INhft. 1889, 1890,
1895, and 1899, and ll may ho Incidentally mentioned, thai by her command no exhibit that has not been

been exhibited by ihe sovereign, since
the year 1890. /
King Edward won tlo championship nf iho cattle section In 1874, and
lhe Cup for Iho besl pen of sheep In
1885; whilo our present King won
ihe championship for pigs in 1895,
and Iho Prlncn Consort a gold modal

Nor has the Sniillifiold Club lacked
royal support from other points of

herdsman when he replied with ob
vlous pride, "Nearly thirty years.'
But in those thirty years he haii
never seen Windsor so unrivalled.
Someone propounded tho theory
that the soil of Windsor, which useil
lo produce the best English oal
trees, must have similar properties in
stock production. Out of twelve en

might state tho breed lo be so-called,

only been accomplished nine time
in twenty years. Old city men who
bave lunched regularly at the same

three guesses each day. Tbe cheese
Is brought ln on a fcot-hlgh revolving pedestal, and placed In front ot
the chairman. Each guest ls supplied with a slip of paper on which
to record his guesses, and whenever
any one succeeds the proprietor asks
all the guests to drink the health of
the winner ln champagne. The custom is believed to be nearly two
hundred years old, and before the
luncheon, for which sixty-five places
are set at three tables, the chairman
invariably says grace.
