Port Alberni, April i_:--As
soon as the traffic warrants the
move the I. & N. Railway Company will increase its tri-weekly
passenger train service to a daily
service the same as last summer, j
and there is likely to be a change
iu the running time, which will
allow passengers to leave Port
Alberni at 7 o'clock in the morning and reach Victoria about 1
p. m,.
The announcement was made by
H. E.* Beasley, general super-
intendant of the Company- Mr.
Beasley said the company figured
on inaugurating a passenger service
on the East coast line from Courtenay on Julv 15. It was planned
to have the train leave Courtenay
every morning at 8 o'clock, and
arrangements were under consideration to provide for a connection
with the train from Port Alberni
at the Parksville .junction. This
t'rain would make faster time than
usual to Victoria by means of cutting out a number of stops along
the line from Nanaimo south.

of a community of nursing sisters,
whose object as announced in your
columns, appeared to be identical
with tlie requirements of the district,   It is therefore with no little
surprise that I have read the article
in your issue of the 9U1 instant
which would seem to indicate that
with the exception of the formation
of a committee of gentlemen for no
very specific purpose other than
that  of receiving  correspondence
aud promises of assistance, we arc
in much  the same positioi as we
were a twelve month since.
Now we are all very much aware
of   the   crying   need of   a   local
hospital, and your account of the
sufferings endured ou the road to
Cumberland  hospital by the poor
fellows injured at the camps, serves
the more to emphasize the  need;
however I am quite sure that neither
the casualties in the logging camps
and other works in  the  vicinity,
nor the health of the community iu
general, warrants the establishment
of two such insitutions, neither of
which under these circumstances
could expect to be self supporting. 1
Never-the-less unless the ^Sisters of
St. Joseph have renounced their'
declared intentions,  the article in
your issue of last Thursday indicates that such a condition of things
is really contemplated,
I have no wish to advance any
special pleading on behalf of either
proposition, but taking into consideration that the matter is urgent
I think that ihe cause may well be
more closely examined before we
have definitely committed ourselves
to a policy that savours of opposi
tiou, in a matter of vital need.
In the first place we have already
among us a community of nursing
ladies who have settled in the
neighbourhood with the announced
intention of erecting a hospital to
serve the district, and who as a preliminary have, as I am myself awart,
already opened their door* to quite
a number of patients. -
As to whether as a religious body
they are in a position to apply for
government aid, (which you inform us is ouly granted to an undenominational establishment) 'with
regard to any project they may have
in view, can be to us only a matter
of conjecture and is in my opinion
beside the mark.
I might mention however that
the oue or two institutions of the
kind conducted by religous societies
that 11'nve 1 .en in touch with, have
as far us the hospital work was
concerned, been as undenominational as the most exacting government could require,
If then it appears tome, we have
the fulfilment of our object already
in embryo, wherein lies the purpose
of our committee of local men?
Perhaps Mr. F. D. Cameron or
whoever may be charged with the
interpretation of the scheme will
kindly consent to be a little more
explicit and with your kind permission, (as the matter is of public
import) through the medium of
yonr columns.
I am yours truly
A Resident in the District.

this port for the States,   But a
number are shipped to places  in
Canada,  and, owing to the hard
shells nnd tough skins,  they are
eveii reaching places as far east as
Montreal without a single egg being
broken    Now is the time for the
Comox Valley poultry keepers to
organize   before  it   is   too   late.
Cowichan has done so to good advantage, and you can buy Cowjchan
eggs in Victoria to-day, knowing
that they are fresh, and not mixed
with the product of the nest that
is occasionally discovered carefully
hidden away.    The point to  be
emphasized is that Cowichan eggs
constitute aparticular brand, whereas Comox egg! nre not known as
such anywhere, not even in Comox
Valley   itself.     If,   in two years
time, the Chinese egg has driven
the Comox product out of the local
Comox market itself, the aggrieved
poultry men will blame, not themselves,  not   the climate,  not the
Comox hens, but the Government.
The astounding fact, going back
to the poultry question, is that so
few   people,   comparatively,  keep
hens.   As a result, a market is
created, not for the local product,
but for the cheaper and competing
product.    Vour   correspondent is
acquainted with a resident of  this
city, who has five pullets in a run
placed on a plot as big as a good
sized kitchen table.   Result,   lA

literature on poultry to satisfy the
severest craving for knowledge on
that interesting subject.
Easter passed all too quickly in
Victoria, but was enjoyed by large
numbers of people. The attendance
at the various places of worship
constituted   a record,  and taking
one insUnce alone, that of Christ
Church Cathedral, it is safe to say
that from 8 a. m. until t p, tn, the
building  was  crowded.     Sirvi e
followed service, and one congregation replaced another; an overflow service was held in an adjoining school-room as there were so
many people who could not gain
admittance to the 11 a. m. service.
This is as it should be and the
province could do with more of the
religious spirit, which is after all
an instinct as natural  as that of
sleep,  or eating or drinking,  in
that it satisfies a natural craving,

She Could Find Nothing to Cure Her

St. Walburg, Sunk.,���(Special).���I

W. A. Baldwin, a highly respected resident of this place. And Mrs. Bald-,

"I was nonrly helpless with rheumatism for two years," she states. "I
got medicine from tho doctor, and tried
several other remedies but nothing
helped me. Then one of my neighbors advised mo to try Dodd's Kidney
Pills. I bought four boxes, and they
helped almost from the first. I have
used nearly two dozen boxes and am
nearly cured."
That rheumatism is one of the results of diseased kidneys is again
shown in Mrs. Baldwin's case. She
had headaches, stiffness of tlie joints
and backaches, her sleep was broken
and tinrofroshing, and she was always
tired and nervous. Her limbs swelled and she was always thirsty. These
are all symptoms of diseased kidneys.
When sho cured her kidneys with

Cannot Be Cured By Liniments-Must be
Reached Through the Blood
Thousands of men and women suffer severely from rheumatism. Cruel,
crippling pains In the muscles and
joints make every movement a torture. Many people think rheumatism
is due to cold or wet weather and they
try to cure themselves by rubbing liniments on the painful parts. This is
a grcat mistake���the rheumatic poison Ib in the blood, and liniments and
rubbing cannot give moro than tho
most temporary relief. If you are a
victim ot rheumatism or lumbago you
can only rid yourself of it by making
your blood rich and pure, for only in
this way can tho poisons of rheumatism be driven from tho system. Dr.
Williams' Pink Pills have cured more
cases' of rheumatism than any other
disense except anaemia, just because

right to tho root and cause of rheumatism. You cannot bo well when

Flour trial is essential but-
it is not your work!
Flour varies from time to
time in baking quality. This
is because wheat continually
varies according to soil conditions, etc.
Therefore, if baking results are to be constantly high,
baking tests are essential.   It
Ml |D|Y%Jis unreasonable to expect you
wr IJI%I ***** to make these tests at your
_ expense.
I So from each shipment of
���       wheat delivered at our mills
I     we take a ten pound sample.
I    This   is  ground   into  flour.

During the French revolution among
those who believed In securing certain
reforms from the king was Kdinoud
de -oiivler, a younger son of Count
de Bourler. He was enthusiastic for
ihe etiui-o until It passed Into lha
bands of those who wero Infuriated,
Ilka wild animals, by the taste of
blood; Iben he wished to withdraw.
II* was thinking uf leaving .ranee
when he received the appointment of
Judge, before whom persons who were
to b�� got rid ot would lio brought for
Da Bouvler whs horrified, suspecting
that tho appointment had been given
blm with a view to sending bins to
the guillotine on a dim-go of sympathizing with thu royalists, lie would
receive from Ilobcsplerre, who was
then In control, n list of those who
were to be condemned, and when
they were brought before him It would
tie expected that be would do the bidding of bis superior. If be refused
he would be sent to execution himself.
Nor would bis refusal save those
Whom be wns expected to condomu.
Do Homier was young and wished
to live. Indeed, he hoped, If his life
was spared till this flame of vengeance had burned itself out, to be of
aervlce to his country. Summoning
bis resolution, ho went to tbo courtroom tbe morning after bis appointment and, by doing what another
would do it he did not, won the confidence ol' those tn power, while at

For a moment Do Bouvler meditated
whether to step down from his chulr
and surrender himself to be dealt with
as an enemy to the revolution. But nn
Idea struck him-not thnt there was
much expectation of carrying it out
without his own condemnation, ' ut
there was a faint hope. At any rate,
thero was hope for the child.
"How old are you, little girl?" he
asked, with a pity ln his voice ho
eonld not control.

In the morning, putting ��� r��_or 3
bis pocket, be sullied forth lu the direction of the courtroom, where he was
expected to send nunc i IcttlUI to their
long home. But turning Into a street
thut led to the Place de la Revolution
bo went toward the guillotine. A rmn-
brel passed hiui, loaded wilb persons
going to elocution, nnd among them
he saw the condemned child, she, too,
saw blm, smiled mid waved t_r hr.iul.
He hurried on. When he reached the
guillotine tho victims were being unloaded, stepping up to the executioner,
be took from his pocket the parchment
appointing him a judge uud showed It
to him.
"I condemned these prisoners yesterday," he said, "und I mado a mistake.
This child Is not to bo executed."
The executioner looked ut the paper
and said nothing. It was nono of his
business who wus to bo executed. De
Bouvler then spoko to tho officer in
charge of the troops surrounding the
guillotine, but did uot show tbo evidence of his authority, tor he was
known to tho officer.
"This child got on the list by mistake."
"Yes, M. le Juge."
"I am going to take ber away."
Tbe officer hesitated, then said that
be supposed tt would be nil right, only
be would expect the judge to take tho
responsibility ln the case.   This De
Bouvler then spoke to tbe officer In
child hy the hand, led her awuy.
Ue did not hurry till be entered
a narrow street lending from the
Champs Elysces, tben walked as rapidly es the child was able. Taking her
to the room he bad hired, he shared
off bis beard, tben put on tbe bilker's
costume, .tied tbo handkerchief about
his neck, dressed the little girl in
boy's clothes nnd cut off her long balr.
Then, putting the receptacle filled with
the bread on bis head and taking tho
child by the hand, be went downstairs
and out ou to the street.
Meanwhile, a new butch ef prisoners
wero brought to the courtroom to be
condemned by Judge tie Bouvler, Tbo
Judge did uot appear, but those in
charge of the prisoners, thinking (hat
he bad been belated, waited for him
When an hour had passed without his
coming, a messenger was sent to bis
lodging. He was not there. Au announcement of the fact that tbe judge
was not at court aud could not be
found wns made to Robespierre. At
once notiltcation was given to all In
sympathy with the revolutiou to look
out for the missing judge and arrest
him If found. An hour later word
reached Robosplcrro thut the missing
Judge had taken away Louise do Chap-
poral from tbe guillotine. The manager of tbe revolution was now certain
that Do Bouvler had disobeyed ids order ami had taken to flight But be
must pass tho city barricades, and orders were given to the gatekeepers to
look out fur a mnn and u little girl.
De Bouvlcr's object was to head Tor
the coast and escape to England.
When bo reached tho barricade, tho
soldier of tbe gate was about to pass
him when n man darted up on horse-
hack with Uobesplerre'B order. The
fugitive was refused a passuge till he
'���onId be investigated.
"Investigated!" cried De Bouvler. "1

Bouvler," replied the sentinel, "and a

Do Bouvler laughed. "Do I look like

Tho sentry called a sergeant, wbo
looked at tho two wayfarers uud con
suited the order, .or. a moment tbo
mnn and thu child wero between life
and death. Kate threw the die, and

"Go on," said the sergeant. "There's

Tbo barricade once passed, Do Bouvler found himself ou tbo road leading
toward Calais. But lio bad not gone
far before be took to tbe woods for tbo
day, and on reaching another road bo
changed bis direction, resolving to
head for tho Belgian frontier. He peddled bread along his route, and wbeu
bo bud sold ouo lot be bought another.
Couriers wcrq sent out notifying the
revolutionists on this route, tho one
usually taken by emigres, to stop any
young man with or without a Ilttlo
girl wbo answered tbe description of
ibo missing Judge. De Bouvlcr's two
precautions threw those who were
looking for blm off bis track. They
did not know he was disguised ns a
baker nor that tho child with him was
a girl. Besides, tho fugitives appeared I
to be commoners and nut aristocrats, ;

Pulling * Couple of Stripe Between the
Fingers Changes Them.
If you will i.ike two thin lengths of
celluloid, put ihem In contact and then
suddenly and rapidly pull them between your lingers you will observe
they both havo become electrified���not
only ou tlieir outside surfaces, where
tbe friction of your fingers caused a
negative electrification, but also on the
Inner surfaco of Iho celluloid.
Tbo strange part about this Is lhat
ono of the Inner surfaces of the piece
Is positively charged nnd the otber one
Is negatively charged. I f ono of them
Is slightly curved during the friction
the convex oue will be positively
charged and the concave sided one will
be negatively charged.
It seems, therefore, to depend upon
whether  the  surfaco  Is concave  or
'bother It is convex-depressed or ex-
inded-to produce negative or posi-
e electricity. Even tbe most minute,
-perceptible curvature is sufficient to
five tho expected result It ulso Is impossible to pull the strips nf celluloid
through the lingers without producing
itich strong electrification that one
piece will support the other.
Even the vapor pressure of liquids ls
stronger at tbo convex surface than at
tho concave, If electrons tiro considered as panicles of gns dissolved in
wilds���as tbey once were���ur us negative electricity, there will be a greater
tendency for the electrons to escape
from the convex side, which therefore
will bo left positively charged. This
also Is In perfect accord with tbo latest
researches ii|>on electrons.
Interesting experiments can be made
by following the above directions. Celluloid has peculiar properties for testa.

What an Invitation to His "Bier-abend"

Kniser Wllhelm occasionally gives a

M. Delanney'e Big Scheme For Improving tlie French Capital,
Since Huron Hiuissninnu remodeled
Paris in the days of Napoleon III. at
a cost of $t_O,0OO,O0O uo such stupendous alterations us M. Marcel Diilnu-
ney proposes have been considered for
tho French metropolis.
M. Delanney is prefect of the Seine.
His BCheme involves lhe widening of
many streets, the destruction ot unsightly shanties and the erection in
their places of model houses lo bu paid
tor ln part out of $-10,000,000 already
appropriated for this purpose by the
municipal council,,the limiting of tbe
height of buildings to lhe width of
the street on which tbey are situated
and the laying out nf forty-seven additional public gardens, making u total
of 128 of these institutions, or more
than London bus. ,
"Lo Grand Paris," as Dehinney calls
his proposal, also Involves lhc.de. clop-
ment of tho suburbs, where there will
bo a'sudden acquisition of space nfter
tbe fortilicntions have boon destroyed.
A large appropriation has already been
made to wipe out theso fortifications,
which now servo only to provide lairs
for tho riffraff of Paris, but the prefect
of tbe Selno wants a further $100,-
000,000 to construct parks and flower
beds where the old defenses now are.
He would convert tlie open spaces
about the city and the hills of the
Seine, Marnc and Olse rivers iuto huge
gardeni connected by a .promenade
about twenty-live miles in length.
At present there arc nearly 'JO. inhabitants to the aero in Purls, twice
as many as In Loudon. The construction of "Le Grand Paris" would give
the city nearly six times us much territory ns it has at present, reducing
this congestion and thereby lowering
'eats und the cost of living-Outlook.

"Not better than the best, but better than the rest"
Pacific Great Eastern Bill
In a speech made by the Premier,
in moving the second reading of the
Pacific Great Eastern Bill, regard- j
ing the additional guarantee to hei
provided for the first section of the j
road between North Vancouver and
Fort George.   He said: j
Had  I been  in a position  two
years ago to anticipate the increased
cost of construction as well as the j
money stringency,  I  might  have
been able to advise Parliament bet- j
ter with regard to the guarantee
first arranged.   Failing that, how- \
ever, nnd counting upon a contin-
uance of normal conditions, the bill
as enacted two years ago was the |
best under the circumstances the!
Provincial Government could sub-
There was no intention on the
part of the Province to injure any
legitimate investments made in rail-1
way construction in thiu portion of
the country, but there was always
tlie determination on the part of the
Government that from the moment
we might attack the enterprise we
should lose no time and spare no
effort in pressing on with it in a
businesslike way, so that within a
reasonable period of time we would
be able to go to the people of Ilritish
Columbia with some tangible
No time has been lost. The
various com plications have been
fairly dealt with, In respect to the
project of tlie HoweSound _. Pemberton Meadows Railway Syndicate
we were face to face with the strong
protest of these people against any
trespass on the part of the Pacific
Great Eastern corporation on the
territory which they regard as their
own. So that their investment
might be protected aud so that the
Pacific Great Eastern might be induced to make use of the trackage
already provided, the company, in
conference with all the interests involved, succeeded ir making
arraugements which entitled the
new company to take over the old
trackage and make it part aud
parcel of their system.
At the present time there are 4,
000 nem engaged in the work of
construction along this line, distributed for the most part between
Squamish and Clinton. Surveys
for the entire line to Fort George
have been completed and everything
is in readiness for the letting of
contracts between Clinton and Fort
The whole of this mileage is
accessible from tide water and it is
quite feasible to arrange for the
distribution of gangs of workmen
throughout its entire length, and
in doing so to practically guarantee
that by the end of the year, or at
all events early next spring, the
entire section will be completed and
we can count upon having a continuous grade from North Vancouver right through to the city of
Fort George.
I would direct the attention of
the House to the necessity for early
action in regard to the construction
of the bridge at the Second Narrows. The obligations of the
Pacific Great Eastern impose upon
the company a direct connection
with the city of Vancouver, and it
is generally admitted that the route
must cross Burrard Inlet at the
Second Narrows. I regret to have
to report that, while tlie Provincial
Government has provided a subvention of $400,000, and while the
Federal Government has made an
estimate of ��350,000, and while
large municipal subventions of the
city of Vancouver and neighbouring municipalities have also been
arranged, to date practically nothing beyond the drawing of the
plans and the calling for tenders
has been accomplished.
