her. She stood inr a second or twoj

for his taking a gloomy view of

The occasion served her. The deck

Fly Poison Perils
A  Kecent Bulletin Contains Warning
Against AU Composed of
In lhc war on (lies ihere is peril
in the use of arsenic poison. The
press repottS of poison cases are appalling, especially when one realizes
that ihey show only a fraction of the
actual number, Itul this fraction
amounted to Hid casts in the past
three years, a large percentage of
which were fatal, All because people use arsenic Ily paper ur the arsenic poison cans tu rid their homes
of Mies, putlhig this deadliest oi nil
poisons within children's roach.
Doctor Ernest A'. Swcci, passed
assistant surgeon ol lhc United
Slates Public Health Service has this
to say iii a public health report bul-
Iciin, cn titled "The Transmission ol
Disease by Flics," mention should be
made merely for lhc purpose of condemnation of ihose llv poisons com-
posed of arsenic. Fatal crises uf lhc
poisoning of children llirougli llie
use oi such compounds are far too
frequent, niul owing iu lhc resemblance ol arsenical poisoning lo stun
nn r diarrohca ami cholera infantum it
is believed thai the cases reported
on not, b) nnv means, comprise lhe
total, Arsenical fly destroying dc
vices must therefore bc rated as ex-
ticmcly dangerous nnd should never
bc used, even if other measures are
nui  at hand."
Willi lhis government warning,
mothers should find olhcr means lo
keep the home clear oi files. A cur
of arsenic Ily poison, ur a saucci
containing the arsenic paper, carelessly set nn ii window sill, is inviting disaster to the little ones.

Burn Wood On Railway
Coal is Considered Too Costly lo Use
as Fuel on Engines
Owing to the continued high price
'if coal, the Honduras National irtil-
cc-ad has abandoned this article as a
fuel and is using wood eul along lhe
line of lhc railroad.
The merits of coal and wood as
fuels have been worked out carefully
by this railroad, and when coal
(gain In comes stabilized at a price
sufficiently low ihe use. of the. same
in ill he resumed.
During the former periods of high
coal prices this railroad has resorted
to the use uf the "coroza" or "ca-
Jioun" mils as fuel, and while from
a standpoint of economy aud steam
produced they have proved satisfactory; the intense heat generated was
detrimental to the boilers.
Warts nre unsightly blemishes, and
corns arc painful growths. llnllo-

No Danger
A few days ago a well-dressed and
very charming young lady hailed a
four-wheeler, there being no laxi ill
tight. Just as she was gelling in she
noticed that the horse seemed in-
cined to be, frisky.
He was jumping about and switching his tail iu a way that alarmed
her.    Shir was a timid little thing.
So she addressed a few words to
the'ancient Jehu:
"I hope," she said, smiling bravely,
"that you will not run away with mc,"
The cabby sighed mournfully.
"No, iniiiii," he replied, "I have
t wifc. and seven kids at home already!"

Business Men  and Breadwinners the
Victims of Nervous Exhaustion
When worry is added lu overwork
men soon become the victims nf nervous exhaustion-���neurasthenia ��� the
doclor calls it. Some have no reserve
strength iu Iheir systems in bear lhc
strain; others overtax what strength
they have. If you lind that ynu are
nervous and nol sure of yourself, lhat
you sleep badly, and wake up tired I
and aching, your nerves are out of j
order. Other signs are inability to!
take proper interest in your work;
your appetile is fickle; your back feels |
weak, and you arc greatly depressed
in spirits, line or inure of these
signs mean that you should take
prompt steps to stop mischief by
nourishing tiie nerves with the food
they thrive o", namely lhe rich, red
blood made by Dr. Williams' Pink
I'ills. 'Ihese I'ills have cured thousands of cases of nervous disorders,
including nervous prostration, neuralgia, St. Vitus dance and partial paralysis. Here is an example. Mr. P. If.
Callan, a well known business man in
Coleman, P.E.I., says: "1 owe my
present health, i. not life itself, to Dr,
Williams' Pink Pills, I had always
been nr; .-.-live man, ami when I began in i'ii" down in hcallh paid little!
attention to it as I tboughl it only
temporary weakness. As time passed,!
however, 1 found myself growing
worse, and consulted a doctor, who
said that J was nut only badly run
down, bul thai my nervous system
was badly shattered. I lost flesh, my
appetite was poor, f slept badly and
notwithstanding lhe doctor's Ircat-
mc.nt grew SO weak that I had lo
leave my business antl was confined tu
the house. Time went on ami I was
steadily growing weaker, and my
friends were all greatly alarmed for
my condition. In this condition I
was strongly recommended lo try
Dr. Williams' Pink Pills, and as lhe
doctor's medicine was not helping me
1 decided to tlo so. By lhc lime. 1
bail used three boxes I could tell that
lhcy were helping mc. When 1 had
taken eight boxes of lhe. pills I fell
able lo attend lo my business again,
and people were surprised lo see me
out. I continued the use of the pills]
until 1 had taken twelve boxes, by
which time 1 was feeling as well as
ever I. did, and was being congratulated by all my friends on my full|
restoration lo health, f feel now that!
if I bad used Dr. Williams' l'ink Pills J
at the outset 1 would not only havc|
saved much money spent in doctor's
bills, but would have had renewed]
health sooner. I cannot speak too
highly of this medicine, and would
recommend it to every man who feels
weak, nervous or run down."
You ran get these pills through
any medicine dealer, or by mail at 50
cents a box, or six boxes for $-.50

The findings of the great Liberal

many prominent Liberals. They
declare the resolutions smack too
much of machine politics. Seven
hundred prominent Liberals have
already signed a pe.ition of piotest
against the action of the convention
and advise the western Liberals to
hold district conventions and se
cure authority delegates pledged
to a win the war 'convention und

on Satiutiay evening some insinuations were made which if true
should be investigated. If there is
no foundation iu fact then ample

Dear Sit, ��� I would like to say a
few words iu reply to Mr. Nicker-
son re tlle gasoline shortage. Mr.
Nickerson se-Miis to take it rather
t_ heart tha 1 said it was owing
to a shortage of gas drums and
slow transportation. Mr. Nickerson seems to lie pleased with himself and the Ii. ft N. R. record for
speed, iu fact be is proud of it.
Now il Mr. Nickerson would
dig a lillle further into those records lie would find that there was
only one train per week that hauls
gas in luss than car lots, leaving
Victoria on Saturdays only. The
freight shetls close on that day at
1 o'clock. If cur gas should miss
that tlain, it would be Thursday
p, 111. of the 2nd week following
that it would arrive in Courtenay.
just 14 da vs. If we did get it on
that train it would land in Courtenay the next Thuraday, a little
over 5 davs.
Now if Mr, Nickerson would
just stop to think, tlie slowest old
tramp steamer on the coast would
wander ils way from Vancouver to
Courtenay in from 10 to 16 hours,
and we could start a Chinaman
over tlie road with some gas iu a
wheelbarrow at the tame time as
the train and I would bet a dollar
to a doughnut that he would be in
Courtenay before the freight, and
he would not be pin.bed for breaking the speed lini't.
If Mr, Nickel'rsoll would just
switch his mighty pell from me 'o
the lv. & N, Ry nntl get us a two
or three train service per week we
would forgive llilll, and he would
be lining this tlistrict a service we
certainly would appreciate.
We are selling on average one
ton of gas per day at present, and
the sales are increasing right aiong
To ensure a supply we should have
on hand all the lime about 20 tons
of gas, this even if we could get
the-drums would be expensive owing to the enormous leakage and
high insurance, nnd we are allowed
a very small amount of gas by the .
underwriters., to sny nothing about
the amount of money we would
have tied up 111 dead utock, as we
have to pay spot cash for every
drop of gasoline we handle. If we
had two or three freight trains per
week we would not have to carry
more than half this amount and
would always be sure of a supply,
Thanking you in advance, for I
feel sure you can anil will bring
tllis to the attention of the E, &N.

Yours truly,

The old half-way house was
burned to the ground on Sunday
afternoon. Tllis old landmark was
built by E Picket, in 1901 just alter
tbe Boer war. nnd was a popular
hostelry and areati d water manufactory for many years, but lately
had fallen into decay, not having
been occupied for years until tllis
spring when sonic Orientals who
are cutting shingle bolts in the vicinity lived in some of the rooms.
The fire started 111 the roof, evidently from sparks or a defective
chimney. The fire jumped across
the road nud burned over about ten
acres on ihu hillside. While this
fire was going on some one evidently dropped .1 match or a cigar end
alongside the road near the Colliery Company's big swamp, a.s it
broke into flames all at once, and
threatened Cumberland for a time,
It is still burning i i the peat and
moss, nnd will likely do so until
