Should Keep Their Blood Supply
Rich,  Red and Pure.
On every hand you see women and
growing gins in the deadly clutches
of anaemia. Slowly, but surely a
pallor as o( death settles on their
cheeks; their eyes grow dull; their
appetite fickle; their steps languid.
Dally they are being robbed of all
vitality and brightness, The trouble
If neglected, becomes more acute until the signs of early consumption become apparent. What women and
young girls in this condition need Is
new, rich, red blood, and there is no
other medicine can do the work of
Dr. Williams' Pink Pills, in making
this new. good blood. Those Pills
make girls and women well, and bring
hack the charm and brightness of perfect, regular health. Here is a bit of
proof. M'ss Lillle O'Carroll, Norwood, Ont., says:���"About two years
ago my health began to fail. 1 was
weak, run down and had no ambition
for anything I had frequent headaches, would be completely tired out
after the least exertion, and bad little
or no appetite. A doctor who was
giving me medicine finally told me he
feared 1 was going into consumption,
which, of course made me very much
down-hearted. As the medicine I
was taking was not doing me any-
good I decided to try Dr. Williams'
Pink Pills, and I shall ever feci grateful that I did so. My story may be
summed up In the words "nine boxes
of the Pills fully restored my health,
-perhaps saved my life, and 1 am
now as strong and healthy as any

double reason why this was extremely
dltllcult. Miss Storms was or pretend,

make one supreme effort to unite them

Woman, notwithstanding her bitterness when prejudiced, may be more
easily handled In a matrimonial mutter titan man. She naturally seeks her

the antagonistic interests in the property of another person. Then I went

might be more desirable wltb a husband than nothing a year without one.
"Not In my case." was her quick reply. "1 am satlslitd that 1 couldn't
be tied up with any man for a month
without haling him."
Tills was pot encouraging, but I pur.
���tied the argument, wlrlie she. though
���he naitl -othing, sniffed the air like
a war horse hearing the boom of distant cannon. When I came to a pause
���lie asked the name of the man I proposed she should wed. I told her, and
her Ire burst forth

Having accomplished lu n measure)
what 1 liiid set out. to do, I fell very
much like backing nut and telling
both the parties that after all such a
union as Ilie lady proposed would be
of no grettt advantage to their Interests and would only chain together
two persons who would consider their
bonds a burden. Hilt, with ii distaste
for marriage on the part of both, what
difference could such a wedlock make
since neither wished to marry any one
at all? They would lie married under
the law. which would mean nothing
except In their property affairs, On
the whole, t decided to let the matter
go ou ain! take the consequences,
whatever they might be.
Tlie marriage ceremony occurred at
12 o'clock noon. I reu"ht'd the house

There were no congratulations, the

A Lost Play.
Weedon. Grossmith, the Lngli-h
comedian, used to tell a good story
ab">ut a play by Robert Ganthony,
which that gentleman asked him to
read. Mr. Grossmith took the comedy, hut lost it on his way home.
"Nigh; after night," he says. "I would
meet Ganthony, and he would a.^k me
how 1 lilted his play. It was awful.
The per-niration used to come out on
my forehead as I'd say sometimes, '1
haven't had time to look at it yet,' or.
again, "Tlie first act was good, but I
can't slop to explain, etc.. must catch
a train.' That play was the bane of
my existence and haunted even my
dreams." Some months passed, ami
Ganthony, a merry wa'g, still pursued
him without mercy. At last it occurred to Mr. Grossmith that lie might

The British Columbia Gazette
contains the following notice :
"The Canadian Northern Pacific
Railway Company, having submitted, in accordance with the provisions contained iu sub-sections 1 and
2, Section 16. Chapter 194, British
Columbia Railway Act (R.S.B.C,
1911), a plan showing proposed location of a line of railway from
Mile 210, Quinsan River, to Muck-
alet Arm, NootkaSound, Mile 270;
also branches from Mile 215.5 to
Duncan Bay, Mile 221, and from
Mile 215.5 to Duncan Bay, Mile
221, and from Mile 238.5 to Buttle's
Lake, Mile 244; Comox, Say ward
and Nootka districts, and this plan
so submitted, having been approved
by me, I <lo hereby in pursuance of
the provisions of subsection 5, Section 16, Chapter 194, B.C. Railway
Act (R.S.B.C, 1911), issue to the
Canadian Northern Pacific Railway
Company the certificate of approval
of the plan above mentioned."
The above is as Creek to the uninitiated, but it apparently means
that the long looked-for railway
line will be built into the Comox
valley ill   the  near  future,   which
will bring gladness to the hearts of
real estate dealers and old-timers
who have held down homesteads
for twenty-five years or more Waiting for the railway to come.
A new movement of considerable
significance from the union standpoint has been started ill the Anglican church in Canada. Thirty
prominent members of the communion have attached their signatures to "an appeal for Christ an
unity" and have sent it to every
Anglican clergyman in Canada
with tlie request that if he favors
the proposals set forth he attach
his signature and return the document to .Rev. A. P. Shaftford, of
Montreal. The "appeal" proposes
that ministers of other churches
be admitted, under certain restrictions, to Anglican pulpits, and
that members of other communions be allowed to commune in
Anglican churches. The object of
the appeal is to find out what body
of opinion there is in the Anglican
church in favor of the proposed
changes, aud the intention is to
consolidate this feeling ill fovor of
closer union with other churches
ill some definite action. There
seems to be no good reason why
the Anglican church should not
fraternize to a much greater extent than it has hitherto done with
the other,churches, and it is cer-:
tain that most of the other church-1
es are prepared lo welcome such a
movement wehenever it may come.
There has been a feeling in the!
Anglican church that tlie very con- j
stitution of that church forbade the
full fraternal recognition of other
churches, but there seems to be no I
adequate foundation for such belief, and it is unquestionable that
there is a growing impatience in 1
the Anglican church at the policy <
of ecclesiastical isolation which has '
so far prevailed.
Most people manage to get stuck
on themselves without the aid of,
any adhesive.

The bill which was discussed ill
the Mouse of Lords some four years
ago, providing for a weekly day of
rest, has, we understand, been redrafted, and is shortly to be introduced into Parliament with very
strong and influential backing- The
measure proceeds <>n the principle
that Sunday employment is unlawful, ami then goes on to provide for
such work of necessity or mercy as
may be called for. It has been
drafted with great care, and is said
to meet with the approval of many
hundreds of organizations, representing both work people aud their
employers. A multitude of labor
organizations and associations are
prepared to assist the Imperial Sunday Alliance in carrying tbe meas-
| tire through. The work people the
I world over are finding out that the
friends of the Sabbath are their
friends, and that when once a secularizing of the day is allowed, it
is no longer their day for rest from
toil, If wedo not keep a weekly
day for worship and conserve it as
a clay apart in some higher sense,
we will not long keep it as a day of
rest ill the sense that the man who
toils needs it aud must have it.

Father's had a busy day,
Hustled to the store at ten;
Listened to sour stories gay
Told by other busy men.
Had lo rattle for the smokes
With some members of the bunch';
Spent an hour relating jokes
And then hustled out to lunch.
Hustled back at half-past two
Twice as busy a before;
Then he had a lot to do,
Telephoning for the score.
Placed a bet or two, of course,
Signed a voucher for his pay;
Came home blowing like a horse,
Father's had a busy day.

Advantages and Saving by Using
The Loading Platform
In .hi: writing we desire to put before n.ir Western Farmers the
snvlnc and advantage of loading grain diree'. on cars. Shipping grain
through an elevator, it matters no'whether a Government elevator or
one r'ln by an elevator company or Individ ml ownpr, does not add
the le-i;.. fraction of a cent to the value of he grain, nor does it give
the fanner any belter chance of marketing It to advantage than when
bade.; direct on ears. But loading direct .n cars cuts out In the first
place tbe.elevator charge, which is usually l^c. per bushel, 'say
$17.50 on a thousand bushel car. Tbe eldvator dockage Is also
saved- this may he wotth more nr less, depending partly on how dirty
ihe grain is, but mostly on the farmer's ah'iity in holding his own
with 'l.e elevator man taking it In. On the average the dockage
may be considered worth 3c per bushel to the farmer, or say $.10 per
ear of i.Ohil bushels. When grain is load 3d direct Into car over the
Loading Platform, the farmer knewi, for sii'-e tbat It Is his very own
grain that will be graded by the inspector, and that he will without
diiiht receive tlie full nnd e-.'act outturn of his car nt whichever ter-
minal elevator It is unloaded; for all ernin 's unl.oad.etl from the cars
under government srtperintendanco nnd welched by properly qualified
government welghmen under the rules an 1 rupervlsion of the Dominion Government Board of Grain Oommlsslorf-rs.   '
Of "ourse, it makes no difference in our loading of the farmers'
grain whether it lias been shipped through an elevator or over the
Loading Platform, hut It can easilv be seen from what we have statrd
nhove where the farmer's ndyantagt lies, when it saves him around
S'.n or more on everv car he shins,
We continue to net as the farmers' aeon' In looking after and ills-
iirsiti" of parlot shipments of wheet, oats, barley nnd flax strictly on
n commission of 1 cent per bushel. We are not connected with,
nor Interested In any elevator companies ir elevator!?, either local or
terminal neither arp we track buyers. In fact we never buy farmers' grain on our own account, but onlv to hl.ndlo and dispose of the
