The Japnnese question, so fnr as
this valley is concerned, could be
easily settled if everyoue was of
the same mind and had the courage of his convictions that one of
the settlement fanneis has, who
absolutely refused to work for or

If they would stop the men

fashionable nowadays for confer-

Wc have been given to understand that the veterinary inspectors sent out by the government
have found ten cows badly infected
witli tuberculosis in one of the
Japanese dairies close to Courtenay.
If this is the case' the dairy should
be closed at once. We have heard
frequent complaints that these
dairies were very unsanitary, but
if it is proven that tuberculosis
exists in them they should be closed, as they are uot only a menauce
to the people who consume the
products, but to neighboring cattle
as well.
Alcohol may lie a good creature
of God, but its use as a medicine
or for beverage purposes is becoming every year more restricted, on
the authority, too, of the truest
science of our time. At the recent
International Congress of Physiotherapy, in Berlin, Germany,
Professor Ewald, of Berlin University, one of the mest eminent
clinical teachers in the world, made
this statement, "I have reached the
conclusion that in no infectious disease has the value of alcohol been
proved. Ou the other hand, it
diminishes the natural resistance
to the inroads of disease." The
use of alcohol in medicine is decreasing very much everywhere,
with every evidence that it will
practically pass out altogether in
the process of time. We are told
that in several well-known London
hospitals the expenditure on alcohol has decreased more   than one-
half during the past twenty-five
years, though the business of all of
them had very largely increased.
In these days, when tlie liquor advertiser is telling us that beer is a
food and better than beefsteak, it
is well to remember that science is
saying with more emphasis every
day that alcohol in any form is a
dangerous poison to the human
system,
The Comox Pair opens today.
The exhibits are being placed in
the hall and sheds, nnd are being
judged. To morrow is the big day
however, when all the live stock
will be on tlie grounds, and the
sporting events will take place. A
large list of events has been prepared, for which excellent prizes are
being offered. There are three
purses of 580 each (to he divided)

Letter to the Editor
Aviation
Editor Reviiw,
Dear Sir, ���Re paragraph on Avi
atiou.Sept.il. I um sorry to see
this, especially as you used the
stock phrase that has kept England
in tlie background in aviatiou matters, viz., Man's place is not iu the
air, if it was he would have been
provided with wings,
Ten years ago in England any
would-be-aviator was met with this
grandmotherly phrase from some
chuckling genius. On tlie same
principle I should like to ask why
some of tlie Courtenay boys were
not provided witli (ins if meant to
switn, and why wus not man born
with a railway engine in his pocket
if meant to travel by train.
Do you not believe thnt things
nre evolving and that this evolution
is part "of the supreme plan. The
beauty of life is its diversity and
the beauty of the brain power is
its originality, About ���'little if
any sympathy can be offered,"
well, you do not know the men or
you would moderate this,
Vours truly,
W. 0. Robertson, m.p.s.
Past President Areo Club.
[We were not aware we had used
a stock phrase, We certainly
thought it was original, which goes
to prove that great minds think
alike. From our observation of
some of the Courtenay boys they
would need a whole outfit of fins,
gils and scales if they were to make
a success of swimming, Tlie railway proposition is too weighty a
oue to answer off-hand. From our
observation of aviators we have al
ways judged them as reckless daredevils seeking notoriety. Ed.]

The Wonder of It
We wandered on the seashore,
We wondered at the sky;
I told her how I loved her,
Said, "She wondered why?"
I wondered if she'd have me,
She gently answered "Yes",
And then we wandered, wondering
In speechless happiness.!
And now since we are wedded,
We wonder as of yore.
We wondered as we wandered
Along the ocean shore,
With just the bis of difference
That our wonder we condense
IntoSwondering how we happened
To have so little sense.

Exchange of Products
Victoria is getting  oranges and
lemons from Australia   and British
Columbia is sending them onions,
to be followed by apples very shortly.    Several  large  shipments of
tomatoes and onions were sent out
by the steamer "Marama" to Fiji.
This should by encouraging news
for the Comox Valley ranchers, the
various sawmills around here might
also give a thought to the question
of box and barrel making to carry
these  products.    The  Courtenay
Board of Trade by increased membership should also be in a position
financially to advertise in the Australia  and   Fiji  newspapers  that
Comox   Valley  can   produce  the
foods they need of Al  quality, delivered to steamers direct without
transhipment.   Thereby   effecting
a  con.��iderable  saving   in freight
charges and rough handling.

CHAPTER X
Waiting
The last, day of suspense had come.
Sir Richard Hanley had kept up a
show of cheerfulness before his
friends, political and social, during
the past fortnight. Only Maud, his
butler, nnd his valet���both old servants, who had been with the statesman many years���knew the contrary,
lu his brain was the iteration of a
perpetual question, which met him nt
his meals, which sat behind him as
ne rode through the Park, and over
'.he frosty roads leading In and out
ol London, north and south���above all
which lay by Ills side at night, and
i-roke to him amid that mysterious
j silence which conies upon a great city
about two o'clock in the morning���
the most impressive silence in the
whole world to the wakeful watcher.
Quite as much as Murgatroyd, Hanley had leathed a marked and con-
splvuous nilestone in his life. Some
thing was wiitten on It. What that
writing was as yet seemed as uncertain and elusive ns the obiter dicta of
a Delphic oiacle. It might be as the
Handwriting on the Wall in ancient
iiabylon; and as the days drew on
without news, Hanley grew to be certain that :o It was to be. During the
wakeful nights his whole past had
risen before him. It was a consecutive panorama of conspicuous and
untitling success. Born to a good
position, and the inheritor of a name

Shattered Nerves
Good blood- rich, red blood -makes
all Hie difference between health and
sickness. If the blood Is thin and
watery, the health of the whole body
suffers. The sufferer becomes nervous and Irritable; the stomach falls
lu strength and the appetite becomes
poor, Food does not give the necessary nourishment, and the llrst feeling of weakness pauses, as time goes
on. Into a general breakdown iu lhe
health.       The  case  of  Mrs.   Angell-
quo Qagnon, or st. Jerome, Que.,
Illustrates the truth or these-statements. -Mrs. Gagnon says: "1 am
fifty years of nge and tin to a few
months ago always enjoyed ihe best
ot health. Then I began to feel rundown and weak, without patience or
ambition. My appetite grew poor,
and my nerves seemed to be on edge,
and the least noise or worry would
make m < trr'tr.ble and nervous. Life
became nn t ctaal burden and I could
no longer look after my household
diUIo-r,. My doctor prescribed nnd ordered a change, saying that I was a
nervous wreck. I tried to become
Interested in other things but failed,
and my condition was really deplorable. I continued in this condition
for several months, gradually going
down, and as my doctor was not helping rue 1 was easily persuaded by a
friend to try Dr. Williams' Pink Pills.
After taking the pills for a few weeks
I could see an improvement, and 1
gladly continued using tbem for a
couple of months, when I found my
health fully restored. I am more
than thankful for what Dr. Williams'
Pink Pills have done for me, and I
gladly recommend them to all who
are weak, nervous and run down."

method, the bides are put In Bpecla!

and this will tan the hides in much,
less time than usual, for instance,
six weeks as compared to several

Various electrical devices in the shnpe

Nol ihe least of the extraordinary
teats of Hi., rodotiblabld bridge-build-
sr, Sir William Arrol, v.as tho faol
thai al one time he carried on two
such gigantic contracts as the Tay
���ind Perth Bridges. II was a striking
tribute io his greui powers of organ I
tall Oil anil lo his genius for engineer-
Ing on a mammoth scale. The construction of tho Tay Bridge was only
halt-finished when lie made a starl
with the gigantic undertaking which
low spans the firth of Forth, from
Hie designs of Sir John fowler and
Sir Benjamin Baker, Over a year
was spent in the preliminary preparations alone���-Uie designing and making of special plant, lhe erection - f
workshops on shore and the thousands
and one tilings essential lo tbo success
nf such a large scheme. The cost of
temporary plant ran to hair-a-niillion
sterling, aud Included thirty slenin
11 id other barges, tugs, launches anl
boats, sixty steam cranes and winches,
fifty hydraulic cranes, forty-eight
steam engines an 1 hydraulic jacks,
hftnd-cranes and drlllii..; machines almost Innumerable; not to
mention one million cubic feet of timber and sixty miles of wire. The
enormous nature of this engineering
wonder of the world may he gathered
from Hie following figures: The total
lengih is over a mile and a half, and
consists of two spans, each nearly a
third ot a mile long; two spans of six
hundred and seventy-five feet each. In
ihe piers there are about one hundred
and twe.ily thousand cubic yards of
masonry, and iu the super-structure
over forty thousand tons of steel aud
some fifteen thousand Ions of iron.
The building of tbo Tay Bridge was
an opportunity for a display of his
engineering genius which the ambitious bridgeuu.ker eagerly welcomed.
A" rigorous examination revealed the
old foundations to be insecure, and it
was decided to build an entirely new
bridge a short distance farther up the
river. Within five years from its
commencement���1882 to 1887���a remarkable erection, over two miles in
length, and constructed at a cost of
seven hundred and fifty thousand
pounds, spanned Ihe estuary, a structure strong enough Io defy the fiercest
gale that ever blew. it was the
greatest engineering triumph of the
age. until it was eclipsed by a greater���lhe Forth Bridge.

Saskatchewan  Lady Adds  Her Testimony  to  What   Has  Already  Been
Said of the Great Work Dodd's Kidney Pills are Doing.
Caesarvllle,  Sask.     (Special! ��� The
scarcity of female help in a new country subjects the women of the prairies to unusual strain, and careful observation has established Ihe fact that
this  stiain llrst mak  .  itself felt In
the kidneys.    For this rcascn Dodd's
Kidney Pills ..re making an enviable
reputation from the Great Lakes to
the foothills of the Rockies.
Everywhere you will llnd women
singing tho praises of the great Canadian kidney remedy that lias banished their paln3 and weariness, and
brought them back to health. Among
the many is Mrs. Edgar Cowen, an
estimable lady ot this place.
"1 have found Dodd's Kidney Pills
very beneficial," Mrs. Cowen states.
"It anything I can say will help any
sufferer I am glad to add my testimonial to what has already been said."
The kidneys strain all the refuse
material out of the blood. If they
are out of order tills refuse remains in
the blood, and becomes poison. That's
why sound kidneys mean pure blood
and good health. Dodd's Kidney
Pills make Bound kidneys.
Quotations That are Wrong
Some of the most frequently used
quotations are not quotations at all,
but in "many cases convey the opposite meaning of the original wording.
Fenimorc Cooper, for instance,
thought he waB quoting from the Bible when he spoke of au Inscription
being so devised that he who runs
may read, signifying that it was easier to run than read.
It Cooper had looked In his Bible
be would have found in the book of
Habakuk that the passage he tried
to quote was: Write the vision and
make It plain that he may run that
readeth it. The vision was a warning : nd the reader was to flee from
danger, but tho Cooper version has
survived the original aud practically
put It out of use.
A popular chronic misquotation is
that of the passage In Hudlbras,
which says: lie that compiles against
his will is of the same opinion still.
Authors and public speakers without
number have twisted that, into: A man
convinced against hiB will is ot the
same opinion still, forgetting that a
man who was convinced could not
possibly remain ot the same opinion
lor if he was of the time opinion he
would not be convinced.
Theodore Hoosevelt publicly declared that Washington in his farewell ad-
dresB snld: To be prepared for war
is the most effective means to promote
peace. But the first President said
nothing of the sort lu his farewell
address. In his first message to Congress he said: To be prepared for war
is one of the most effective means of
preserving peace, and he spoke of oth-
(r means as well.
Novelists do not seem to be very
strong In their knowledge of the
Scriptures somehow, and Sir Walter
Scott, In 'The Heart of Midlothian,'
attempts to point a moral with the
words: Our simple and unpretending
heroine had the merit of those peacemakers to whom it is promised as a
benediction that they shall Inherit the
earth. The fact ls that the peacemakers did not receive any such promise, but it Is said that the meek
shall Inherit the earth.

red gum requires an expert to distinguish II from the costly Ciraassiau
walnut. The now expensive white
pine is bekig replaced, where durability la not a requisite, by the cheaper |
spruce, basswood and elm. Poplar
and balsam fir are two of the most
common trees in Ontario and that
they have wider uses is evident from
the fact that poplar Is highly valued
for h .rdwood flooring in Manitoba
while balsam fir is perhaps the most
widely used native species in the
Maritime provinces.
The bulletin also Indicates the existence of a market in Ontario for
sumac, apple and cherry logs. The
lumber cut from them being worth
$30, $46.50, d.id $44.50 per thousand
feet board measure respectively. The
Forestry Branch has already been instrumental in securing sales ot the
wood of worn out apple orchards and
is desirous of further serving the public along these lines. The bulletin
on The Wood-using Industries of Ontario can be had gratis from the Forestry Branch, Department of the Interior, Ottawa. A similar report
dealing with the Maritime Provinces
will appear shortly.

Novel Musketry Practice
A report comes from Vienna ot the
utilisation of the cinematograph for
instruction in musketry. The firing
squad is posted in front of a cinematograph screen, and a moving colored
picture of the battlefield ls thrown on
it from behind them. Each man has
to pick up hiB target, take aim and
Are. When a shot Is fired the film
stops for a second, and the hole made
by the bullet In the screen Is Illuminated by a flashlight behind It, which
shows the position of the hit with
reference to the target.
Correcting the Answer
At a horse-stealing trial out west a
Jury was gathered and shut up in a
room after a brief trial, and when an
hour had gone by a mob burst in and
unceremoniously demanded what tho
verdict wns.
Not guilty, said the foreman.
That won't do, said the leader of
the mob fiercely. You will have to
do better than that. And ho shut
the jury up again.
In half an hour the door was opened once more. .
Well, gents, jour verdict, said the
leader.
Guilty, the foreman replied.
There were hurrah from the crowd
and the leader said:
Correct. You can go now. We
strung him up au hour ago.
Potatoes and Power
One forseeB the triumph of the potato, unforseen by William Cobbett,
not so much as a food, but as a means
of m/tlon. Coal Ib giving out; petrol is going up in price and down In
production. Tho supply ot both is
limited am', must come to an end, but
there com.>s the cheer that alcohol
will be the motive force of the future.
Petrol and coi.l may give out, but the
earth will always grow potatoes. Potatoes can produce alcohol and alcohol can drive engines. In the potato we seem to have discovered the
secret ot perpetual motion.
Real Gratitude
Pessimists declare that the days ot
gay romance aro dead���that there Is
no spirit of chivalry left in the
braasrs of '.be men of modern times.
Thev are all wron^. Here we have
the story In the daily papers that a
man In Ohio left all his money to the
girl who refused to marry him years
ago.     That's gratitude for you!
Another One on Twain
Mark Twain at a dinner at Th����
Author's Club, said: Speaking ot
fresh eggs, 1 am reminded ot th->
town of Squash. In my early Lxnur-
ing days I went to Squash to Wtura
In Temperance Hall, arriving lu tin
afternoon. The town seemed poorly
b.lled. I thought I'd find out If thu
people knew anything at all aboii:
what was in store for them. So t
turned In at the general store. Good
afternoon, friend, I said to the general
storekeeper. Any entertainment
here tonight to help a stranger whila
away the evening? The general
storekeeper, who was sorting mackerel, straightened up. wiped his briny
hands on his apron and said: I expect there's going to be a lecture, ',
been selling eggs all day.
Comfort for the Dyspeptic.���The-ra

by years of effective use. There are
pills that are widely advertised as

Tired and Weak
Nerves Exhausted
The feelings of fatigut- and languor
which overcome so many people at
this season of the year tell of the exhausted condition of the nerves.
It Is. impossible to keep up tbe action of the heart and the vitality of
the nerves when tlie blood ls thin
and watery, and this is why nearly
everybody needs tonic treatment In
the spring.
Some of the s.wnptoms are restless-
toss,  purposeless  activity,  insomnia,
absent-mindedness, tired gait, lack of
ambition  and  enthusiasm,  head-ache j gredlents
and  neuralgic   pains,  dyspepsia  and  health
ness or social world.
More and more men and women
are obliged to se -k the assistance of
such concentrated foods as Dr.
Chase's Nerve Food to restore vitality
to the tired and worn-out nerves.
Such, treatment is necess.ry, because diseases of the nerves do not
right themselves. As nerve force
runs low the digestive system fails to
extract the necessary nutrition from
the food. Dr. Chase's Nerve Food
supplies In condensed form the In-
required,    and    restores
feelings of languor and depression
Monotony of work and mental overstrain or worry sap the nervous system, as does also the strenuousnesa
A little patience is neeessar - In
treating diseases of the nerves and
rest helps to restore strength. You

of modern life, whether In the bust-! suits when you use

usually goes from here.

Grant's Joke at Vicksburg
Fifty years ago. when tlranl was he-
selglng Vicksburg, tho Confederate
newspaper of that city, which in tlio
desperate conditions waa printed on
lhe reverse side of wall paper, editorially referred to a rumor that Grant
hud claimed lhai he would be lu possession ot the city on the Fourth of
duly.
The editor gayly reminded the Union,
commander of lhe old recipe for cooking rabbits, begl.inlng: First, catch
your rabbit.
Vicksburg was surrendered to Crant
on tho Fourth of July, and one of the
llrst ncls of the grim conqueror wus
to Print u second edition of lhe Con
federate newspaper, with tills note
added to the bantering editorial.
P.S.��� July 4. Tho rabbit has been
caught.

Path of the Sun
The sun's Path Is called the ecliptic.
It is a great circle of tbe celestial
sphere, cutting the celestial equator
at two points 180 degrees apart and
making with it. an angle <.�� 23',��� degrees known as the obliquity of tlie
ecliptic. The crossing points are
called the equinoxes, because the days
and nights are then equal, and the
points midway between the equinoxes
ure the solstices, because the sun then
seems to stai 1 still for a few days.
The ecliptic is so called because
eclipses occur only when the moon is
crossing it or is near it, for the
moon's ii'bit cuts the ecliptic In two
poiuts, called nodes or knots, and at
other times is above or below it. If
tha moon when In either node, is In
line with the sun and tho earth we
have nn eclipse, either total or annular. If sl.e I near her node we have
a partial eclipse,
The moon's nodes are not stationary, but move backward on the moon's
orbit, completing a revolution In
about nineteen years, when the eclipses of the period recur in the same
order nnd al nbout the same Intervals
as before. This period of eighteen
years and eleven days is culled the
saros. it was known to the Chaldeans and the Creeks nnd gave them
llieir data for computing eclipses.
Any intelligent person can trace the
sun's path In the heavens. If the
sun rises exactly In the east and sets
In the west It is the time of the equinoxes. If the sunrise and sunset
points are faithest south and the sun
Is very low In the ' avens at noonday
It is the time of the winter t".slice.

I would rather you were a comet,

His heart beat tumultuously.

Oh, she said, with a brooding earnestness that fell freezing upon his

MIsb Marguerite Ashton, u young lady
��f Chicago! was left alone in the world
st nineteen by tlie dontb ol father and
mother wiih a fortune of two millions,
Miss Albion's brother bud died several
years before tlio others; consequently
sit her father's property descended to
her. Iiii had loft tlie management of

At lhe time of Mr. Allltoll'S dentil
Wnrllelil was In his prlino, bolug thirty-
live years old,
The Ashtnus were of (he newly rich,
Mr. Asiiiini baring made Iho built of
Ills fortune In n largo real estate speculation shortly before bin deotb. His
daughter had no Unowlodgo of thu
World or of society, There was no near
relative with whom she could make
ber home, nml she did uot relish living
nlono. It was natural, therefore, Unit
she should wish to soo something of
the world, and, being Invited lo Join a
parly going abroad, she decided to avail
hei'sclf of the opportunity,
Afler visiting the principal cities of
western Europe Miss Asliton found
herself In Home at tho most expensive
hotel there. She was still the unsophisticated Chicago girl, but ber surroundings bad changed. This difference for
her did not consist in lhe vast Hold
of antiquity about her, for, although
fairly educated, a girl of twenty ls not
likely to be versed In the literature
that has been banded down to us from
ancient Homo. What was new to Miss
Ashton was tbo collection of persons
from all parts of the world sho found
In the Eternal City. Though sbe obtained no entree into Roman society,

sbe was thrown in with tourists of
every variety.
Home, too, has Its share of adventurers, Wherever Is the American with
Ills fnrfamed dollars to spend there
Is tho adventurer, and no class Is so
susceptible of affording plunder for
dissolute foreigners ns American heiresses.
Miss Asliton could not long remain
In oue place without attracting the attention of these cormorants. Sho was
simplicity Itself. When visiting the
golden house of Nero���and the guide
showed her a ruined apartment as the
emperor's smoking room���she did not
stop to consider that some fifteen centuries had elapsed lifter Nero's time
before tobacco was Introduced Into
Europe. When Inspecting tableware
exhumed from Pompeii and the guide
showed her certain dishes from which
lie told her tlie I'oinpeliuis drank tbelr
coffee it did not occur to her that a
similar period had elapsed before Europe hnd begun to enjoy that beverage. It Is not strange Hint a girl so
easily deceived In these matters should
put faith in any man who claimed tbat
bo loved her.
Miss Asliton spent a winter In Koine,
snd when spring came she had received a number of propositions of mar-
::agc. There are many princes In Italy,
for every one descended from an ancient ruler of one of ihe formerly Independent principalities of what Is
now United Italy bears tbe title of
prince or princess. Among Miss Ash-
ton's train of suitors wero a prince, an
English earl, a German baron and a
French mnrqma.
it was fortunate for Miss Ashton
that thorn were so man., of those suitors that ihoy balanced ono another,
llnd there been but one It is qnlto
probable thai bj persistence he might
havo won (tic prize. The prince poured
Into Iwr enr tales of bis benutlful home
In Sicily, where they could dream tlie
happy hours awny. The earl pictured
Ids estates In Hereford, Kngland (loaded with mortgages)! tho baron his
sellings in Westphalia, Germany. The
marquis spoko eloquently of llll chateau on the hanks of the T.olro that hnd
been the home of kings and had do-
���cended to blm through thirteen generations.
To tbls nobleman the young lady said
that she could uot think of marrying

that wus nn unlucky number.

Though sho did not know II, Mnr-
guorlle Albion hnd boon uu object of
Interest to Warfleld from tho time sho
was live years old and used to climb
ou bis hip lo listen to stories lie
would tell her. Shu was to him tho
daughter of iho man who had given
him his opportunity for bis life's work.
Uo was busy nt Iho lime bo received
the cablegram, and it was difficult for
blm lo leave Chicago. Nevertheless ho
sailed at ouco for Naples nnd lu a few
hours after bis arrival In Italy wus In
Itomo.
"Well, Margie, what Is It?" he asked
ns soon as tho two had settled down
to business,
"I'll tell you. I can't Imagine bow
It happened that so many men should
havo fallen In love wltb me ut once.
I suppose It's the Italian nlr or souiw
thlng, but it's so. And the worst of
It Is that none ot them will be refused. There's Prince lioluzzi. I've
told blm again nnd again that I can't

Westphalia as his wife ills life will

dleton pleaded his enuse so pathetically tbat 1 couldn't help sayiug 'Yes.*
l'vo half promised the marquis, and. Indeed, there Isn't one of theiu I'm uots
partly committed to."
"I see no way out of It for you,"
said Warfleld, "but to go Into a betrothal bankruptcy. However, I'll
make Inquiries about these gentlemen
aud report to you If any ol (hem bears
a good reputation. If so and you wish
to marry him I'll help you out with
the others���which as your guardian I
have a right to do-ond you can be
wedded to the man of your choice
whenever you llko."
"There isn't any of Ihcm the man of
my choice."
"Well, then, we'll havo to get rid of
the lot."
"How can tbat be done without the
prince jumping iuto the Tiber and tbe
marquis"���
"We'll bave tbctu locked up till they
get over It."
"Ob, my goodness gracious! I could
never look them iu tbe face again."
"It would bo just ns well that you
shouldn't. However, my dear Margie,
having brought me over here to get
you out of your difficulty, perbnpsi
you'd better leave tho matter to me."
"That's just what I'd like-that is, If
you don't mind such an awful job."
"It won't be so hard for me as It
would for you. Don't see nny of tbem
till tomorrow afternoon. Then I'll Us
It all up so that you won't have any,
more trouble. Write each of them a
note asking him to call here tomorrow
at 3 p. m. to receive your dual answer."
"All nt once? Great heavens, I
couldn't do that! Tbey would kill ono
another."
Warfleld persisted nud went nway,
with a note for vach of tho suitors,
which bo posted ut once.
The next nfternooti Warfleld called
before the others. He exacted a promise from Marguerite that she would
bear him out in any statement he
might make, though ho was obliged to
assure her that nothing harsh should
be said to nny of tbem. .
The prince arrived nt ten minutes before the appointed hour nnd was required to wait below. Tho marquis
came next and lhe baron next. All
were In the hotel at 3. nnd n few minutes later all received a summons to
Miss Asliton's private parlor. Scarcely
bad one entered before there was a rap
at tbe door nnd another stood nt tbo
opening. There wns no time for conversation since tbey came so near together. Some of tbem recognized others ns rivals, and they glared mutually.
Wben they had all been admitted War-
field, who was formally Introduced to
them, said:
"Gentlemen, Miss Ashton has desired mo to nnnounco to you that, having
been honored by a proposition of marriage from each and all of you, sho
bas considered your propositions and
come to a conclusion,"
Tbe speaker unused aud cleared bll

Miss Ashton looked from tier ndvn-

"I bad gone lain the mayor's office

Johnson, who had a tremendous reputation as iiii executive. Even his worst

there Is to executive ability.'
"I looked nt him iu amazement. He
bad grown quite serious.
"'There's another thing.' he added.
'Don't spend too much time in your

went on reflectively, 'you can get clerks
who can sign your name better than

The Lost Watch.
A detective tells this story about a
"confidence man," who gave tho police
a lot of trouble.
One day the detective was lu an auction room, where "fake" jewelry was
being sold. A lot ot watches were offered���cheap, worthless affairs, but got
up to look llko solid gold. They wero
knocked down for $2.15 apiece, and
the detective noted thnt they were
bought by this confidence man. Two
months later tlio detective met bim
and asked him what he bad done with
Ihe watches. The scoundrel explained
Ids scheme, Ho had hired a room, put
In a desk and a few chairs and made
himself up to look like nn old mnn.
Then he advertised something like
this: "Found-A solid gold watch.
T.oser can have It by paying costs.
Apply," etc. Nearly every smart thief
In town answered tbo ui crtisement,
claimed the watch nnd paid $10 for
"costs." Iu two days he disposed of
Ills entire stock In this way, and about
100 smart thieves were fuming over

A NOVEL BATTLEFIELD SCENE
A  Novel  Charge.
For tlie first time in Canada, it is
said, a charge was laid the other day
in Toronto which is not without considerable interest. It is termed "Conspiring to compensate."
In January last Louis Sicgel was
arrested for stealing a large quantity
of furs, and Abraham Panscr went
bail for him.
It is now alleged that Panser was
compensated tor so doing, to the extent of $25, and Nathan Shapiro,
along with Louis Panser, are said to
have negotiated  the  amount.
Shapiro got a loan of a diamond
pin, pawned it and then got some
more money from Louis Panser, with
tbe ticket a9 security.
All three are now charged with the
conspiracy.
There have been convictions in the
old country on a similar count and
it is on the English law that the presi
ent charge is now made.

Is an extremely  Interesting story.    It
appears that while al Itlcbmoud, Just
nl'tcr the surrender, she was summoned lo Ihe door by a sharp rap. She
gives a charming account of what followed:
With my baby on my arm 1 answered the knock, opened tlie door nml
looked up at il lull, gaunt, sad faced
mini lu III tilling clothes, wbo, with
the accent of the north, asked:
"Is Ibis George Pickett's place';"
"Yes, sir," 1 answered, "but he Is
not here."
"1 know Unit, ma'am," be replied,
"but I Just wanted to sco the place.
I am Abraham Lincoln."
"Tho president I"    I gasped,
Tlio stranger shook his head and
said: "No, ma'am; no, ma'am. Just
Abraham Lincoln: George's old friend."
"I am George Pickett's wife, and this
Is his baby," was all I could say.
My baby pushed away from mo and
reached bin bands lo Mr. Lincoln, who
look blm In bis arms. As he did so
an expression of rapt, almost dlvlue
tenderness and lovo lighted up the sad
face. It was a look that 1 have never
seen on any oilier face. My baby
opened bis mouth wide and Insisted
upon giving his father's friend a dewy,
Infnnlilo kiss. As Mr, Lincoln gave

"Tell your father, tbo rascal, tbat I
forgive blm for the snko of that kiss
and those bright eyes."
Mrs. Pickett explains the Interest
Lincoln showed In her husband by
stating thnt It was through Mr. Lincoln's Influence that her husband received his appointment to West Point
One Impression the book conveys is
that of the kindly nnd generous feeling
that existed between Confederates
nnd Unionists graduated from West
Point wbo had been friends before tha
���war. An exhibition of tills feeling was
mnde nt tho llnio of the birth ot General Pickett's first baby. Mrs. Pickett,
telling the story, says:
On tbo occasion of my son's birth
bonfires were lighted In celebration all
along Pickett's line. Grant saw them
nnd sent scouts to learn the cause.
When they reported be said to General
Iugnlls: "Haven't we some kindling
on this sldo of tbo line? Why don't
we strike a light for the young Pickett?"
In a little while bonfires were flaming from tho Ferernl line. A few days
later there was taken through tbe lines
n baby's silver service engraved, "To
(.eorge ID. rickett, Jr., from his
father's friends, U. S. Grant, Itufus In-
galls, George Suckloy,"
General Tickett, in n letter from
Washington, relates another incident in
which this same kindly feeling was
manifested:
After breakfast wo wont, ns arranged, to see Grant. I can't Just tell
you, my darling, about tbat visit.
You'll have to wait till I see you to tell
you 1 w the warm hearted, modest old
���warrior and loyal friend met me; bow
be took in bis the hand of your heart-
sore soldier���poor, broken, defeated,
profession gone���and, looking at bim
for a moment without speaking, snld
slowly, "Pickett, If thero is anything
on the top of God's green earth I can
do for you, say so."   ���   ���   ���
When I started to go Grant pulled
down a checkbook and said. "Pickett,
it seems funny, doesn't It, that 1 should
bave any money to offer, but bow
much do you need''"
"Not any, old fellow; not a cent,
thank you," I said.  "I have plenty."
"But Itufus tells me that you havo
begun to build n bouse to take the
place of lhe one old Rtulcr burned, and
how can you build It without money?
You do need some."
"I have sold somo timber to pay for
It," I told him, nnd to show iny appreciation and gratitttde, unobserved, l
affectionately squeezed bis log, when
ho called out: "Rutiis, It's the same
old Geoige Pickett. Instead of nulling
mv leg, he's squeezing it"

Mditor The Review,
I regret having contributed as I did
some twenty-eight dollars since there
was a missing link, 110 band being present. I have in mind a small village of
about 100 people in the old country who
had tlieir own brass band which cheered
and put life into the place. This was
started by a Dane who followed the occupation of truck gardening for a living
and In liis spare time taught tlie young
men of the village how to play. Tlie
instruments were purchased on deferred
payments guaranteed by a few of the
principal residents. Eighteen months
afterwards the receipts from band attendances liquidated all debts. Cannot
this be achieved by Courtenay? Echo
answers "YES."
If there is any man around Courtenay
who is capable of acting as bandmaster
will he kindly communicate with Harry
Idiens, Courtenay.
