COURTENAY,— A remarkable
potato, grown by Mr. W. J. Andrews, a well-known farmer of
Sandwick, Ih on view in a window here. The tuber is of the
Sir Walter Raleigh variety and
weighs four pounds and 5 ounces.
Less than two dozen such potatoes would therefore exceed an
hundredweight: and it would require only 475 of them to exceed
a ton  12.000 lbs.).
Lleutenant-Govenor Nichol, Premier Oliver and Hon. J. D. McLean.
Minister of Finance, responded to'
the toast of "Our Guests" proposed \ WHARF AT UNION
by C. P. Browning, who on Friday
last presided at the Union Club din-
ner of the Mining Association uf U.C.
and the Mining Association of the j
Interior. Mr. Drowning Is general
manager of the Britannia Mining and
Smelting Company and president nf
the Mining Association.
Lt. Col. C. W. Villiers, general man-
ager of the Canadian Collieries, pro-
posed  the  "Mining  Industry,"  which |
was replied to by Hon. W. H. Suther-
land    and    R.    H.    Pooley.    M.P.P. j
Senator F. R. Green proposed "Mln- j
Ing Associations" and \V. R. Wilson, j
president   of  the  Crow's Nest  Pass
Coal  Company  responded.
The members of the Associations
asked the Government on Friday
for a change ln the system of mining
taxation. They proposed that the
Quebec and Ontario system of taxation be adopted here, which would
make the mining tax three per cent.
without depletion allowanoe. The
present B.C. tax ls ten per cent, on
operating income with depletion allowance.
It was explained to the Cabinet by
the operators that because of physical conditions British Columbia mines
are under a disadvantage compared
to Eastern properties and that capital
should not be discouraged coming Into
this Province by heavier taxation.

Major Hilton in a neat little speech,

evening, confetti was largely thrown

GOOD The most valuable factor in any busi-
WILL ness, whether it be a shoe shining
parlor or a gigantic corporation, is
that invisible asset termed "good will." The
Supreme Court of the United States recently de-
lined "good will" as "that which causes a well-
treated customer to return to the place where
he was well treated." Simple little definition
for so great a factor in success, isn't it? It
would be worth while for every business and professional man to learn that definition by heart,
and say it over every morning as he opens thc
day's work.
What a tender plant this good will is and yet
what a crop of fruit it brings forth. Just how
much we all owe to the good will which hovers
over our establishments it is difficult to estimate.
And how easily good will may be hurt or destroyed. A man may plan to treat his customer
well, he may lay in a large stock of attractive
goods, he may advertise extensively to bring the
customer into his place of business, and a surly
or incompetent clerk may ruin all his efforts by
the careless manner in which he treats the customer. We all know stores we never visit because we were mistreated or neglected by a churlish clerk. The inattention of sales-people, the
error of a book-keeper, the lack of courtesy upon
the part of a collector is a constant blight to the
tree of good will which the proprietor of a business is doing so much to cultivate.
Guard well the good will in your business.
Its growth means success, its blight means failure. No one of us is big enough or is smart
enough to play every instrument in the band.
Every worth-while thing that has come to you
has come on the stream of good will of the other
fellow. No man ever acquired much by main
strength or single-handed combat; it has come
because the other fellow was willing to let somebody else have it, glad to see him get it and
eager to help him to get it. Everyone of us
plays some part in building up or tearing down
the good will of the enterprise with which we are
identified. The boy who sweeps out the store
has an important place to fill, for a littered store
does not attract buyers. The little fellow with
the broom is helping the high-salaried executive
who fixes the advertising apropriation by building
up the concern's good will'. No man can run all
the departments by himself. The one man band
attracts small attention as a curiosity, but he can
never compete with a symphony orchestra as a
maker of sweet music and perfect harmony.
We are nearing the season of "Peace on earth,
good will toward men." We are all going into
the whirlpool of busy days, long hours, strained
purses and tired brains. Let us hold fast to
this bit of mistletoe called "good will."
Give your good will to the boss, that he may
pass it on to his customers and thus be able to
return some of it to you on Christmas Eve. Try
to create good will for the house for which you
work and you will be amazed how the business
will grow and reward you in return.

INCREASE IN INSANE
IS CAUSING CONCERN
The great increase in the number
of Insane in tlie mental hn.ipitnls of
the Province is causing much concern in official circles. Almost every
year additions to the hospitals have
to be provided for by tlle Legislature,
and the annual cost of caring for
the insane hns risen to approzlmately
$750.11110. Thc Provincial Secretary
will shortly propose that a special
committee be appointed to consider
tbe whole subject. It is stated that
in a single year as many inmates are
admitted to these hospitals as were
In them twenty years ago. that 66
per cent of the inmates are not Canadian born and that 90 per cent of
them are not natives of this Province.

POULTRY BUSINESS
IS PRECARIOUS
COURTENAY, Nov. 12—Nearly sixty
persons filled the lecture hall of the
Comox Agricultural Association on
Friday night last to hear the lecture
on "Poultry Husbandry," delivered by
Professor E. A. Lloyd, of the faculty
of the Agricultural College of the
University of British Columbia.
The lecture, which was the first of
a proposed series to be held during
the Winter months, was convened by
the Educational Committee of the
Comox Agricultural Society, whose
members are: Messrs. H. P. Allberry,
representing the poultrymen; R. V.
Hurford, representing the dairymen;
W. R. Perry, representing the potato
growers; R. M. Halliday, the farmers
and 1). Pattinson, the fruit growers.
For over two hours, Professor Lloyd
held the intense interest of all those
present, and. during his discourse,
covered a very large range of subjects
connected with the husbandry of
poultry. From time to time members
of his audience would ask questions
of much interest, which were answered by the "speaker for the benefit
of all present. Among the s"Blient
feattr.es of his address he stressed the
danger of going Into the poultry
breeding business. There are already

The shortage of eggs, with resulting
high prices, did not tend to result in
a profitable business; prices of eggs
on the Vancouver market were too
high for a healthy condition of the
market, and the public often had to
go without them. The lecture wns
interspersed with a number of warnings anil much good advice. After
explaining the difficulties of combining the breeding of poultry with that
of egg production, he said without any
hesitation that, "if you do not sense
success in the breeding of birds, cut
it out; you will make more money
out of egg production alone, and will
be much more contented into the bargain."
The   poultrymen   had several  important   matters   to   decide,   among
which  were, first, to what the Individual furnt and the amount of avail- i
able capital was best adapted; second
tho kind of poultry farming then to
lie undertaken.   If for egg  produc-l
tion, the foundation ot stock was all-
Important.     The   breeding   business
was the most dangerous, as the production of breeding-stock entailed one j
of  the  most  fundamental   things   ih,

cent of the British Columbia poultry-
men are doing exceptionally well at j
their   chosen   business   and   making
something much better than a living.

One of the best liked members of one
of the New York clubs is an old professor of Greek at one of the local universities. He has read every thing that
has been published'on the game but
lias never been able to become a good
auction player. Every once in a while
he has a bad night and when he does
his partners try to grin and bear it. The
following hand is an illustration of the
professor's game:
Hearts—7,5
Clubs —9,6, 2
Diamonds — Q, 10, 2

: dummy i
:A B:
t professor i
Hearta — K, 4
Clubs —A, Q
Diamonds — A, 8, 5, 4, 3
Spades —A, K, J, 10
The professor's contract was five spades
and A led the ace of hearts and then a
low heart which the professor won with
thc king, He then tookout the trumps
and led a small club from dummy and
finessed with his queen. The king wa?
in A's hand so that the professor failed
to make his contract as he subsequently lost thc king of diamonds which was
also in A's hand. After the hand was
over, the professor said to his partner,
"Well, partner, if the king of clubs had
been on the right side, I would have
made my bid." His partner, a very
goud player, replied: "You could have
gone game without taking the finesse.
After you Ind taken out the opponents'
trumps, you .should have led a low diamond toward the queen in dummy. A
had the king no that you! diamonds
were set up and on the last two in your
hand, you could have discarded two
losing clubs in dummy." This criticism
was correct and the professor apologized
for taking a finesse when it wasn't
necessary. Study this h.ind rarefully
and 6ce that you don't make the same
error. Count your losing tricks aud
don't finesse if you don't have to do so.
About an hour later the professor
bid one no-trump, all passed and A
opened the three of clubs. The professor's hand and the dummy's are as
follows:
Hearts — Q, 10,9
Clubs —9, 4, 2
Diamonds —C.), 10, 4, 2
Spades—10, 6, 5
: dummy  :
:A n :
: professor :
Hearts —J, 8, 7,2
Clubs — A, Q, 7
Diamonds — A, K, 3
Spades —A, Q,4
The professor should have sized uf.
the hand as follows: "A can only have
four clubs for he his ted the three and
the deuce is in dummy. Therefore, AB
should only nuke two club tricks and
two heart tricks. If the diamonds are
evenly divided, I can go game without
finessing the queen of spades If they
don't break, then I will have to finesse
th-p queen of spades." Unfortunately, he
failed to figure Out the hand as outlined,
and as soon as he got rltunxoy in the
lend, led the spade, fine-End thi queen
and A won the trick with th* kinj of
spades. It was now injposaib!* for the
professor to go game aft be had to lose
two club tricks, two heart tricks and
one spade trick. To play tht hand correctly he should have set up his hearta
and then have played for the drop id
diamonds, They were rvrnfy divided
so that iu this way hcixuiki Wre marie

looks as if anybody can teach Cireek
but auction seems to require a bead."

We were playing chess. He came
to the table rather shyly and was
introduced as an astronomer. The
game ended, and with urgings and
questions, he Anally told for an hour
ot things too profound for more than
gaping acceptance.
After an Interval, 1 took these few
notes In shorthand and will write
them here for you, for you In turn
to be amazed again at the vnstness
of the universe, at the absurdity of
human quarrels.
He said the earth is 8,000 miles
In diameter. It travels around the
aun at a speed of more than a thousand mllea a minute. In a year, earth
travels 680,000,000 miles in its com-

THE MAGIC CARPET
Once upon a time in the mystic
land of Persia, there was found
among the treasurers ot a king, a
wonderful carpet. One had only to
sit on It, wish to be somewhere, and
away the carpet would fly till the
wlshed-for place was reached. For
hundreds of yenrs it carried kings
and princes upon the most amazing
adventures. No one knows what finally became of It, but lt may be that
its last threads went into the makeup of thc first Youth's Companion.
For. like tho magic carpet, the Companion for 11)20 carries you to the
land ot your heart's desire—up Into
the Maine woods with the lumbermen;
out on tlie western plains where the
warlike Navaho Indians live; far up
into the gold regions of Alaska; aiid
away on the Southern Seas In search
of treasures and lost islands. All

EGG GRADING RULES
RIGIDLY ENFORCED
COURTENAY, Nov. 10.—During the
meeting of the poultrymen held under
the auspices of the Comox Agricultural and Industrial Association here
last Thursday night, when the hall
was filled to capacity, two important
resolutions were recorded. On tlle
motion of Mr. J. W. Stalker, seconded
by Mr. M. S. Stephens, it was resolved that the grading of eggs was In I
the best Interests of the poultrymen
and the consumers, and that there-
, fore the Dominion Government's egg
grading regulations should be rigidly
. enforced. A copy of the resolution
Is to be sent to the Department of
Agriculture at Ottawa, and also to
every member of the Dominion Gov-
ernmen from British Columbia, lt
was also resolved on motion of Mr.
R. U. Hurford. supported by Mr. Vul
Taylor, that on account of the lack
of information regarding the reason
Courtenay. which was the
place for him to be. while Duncan
could easily be served direct from
Victoria. Messrs. Duncan and Paul
were appointed a committee to submit
a resolution to Mr. P. P. Harrison,
M.L.A. through his local committee.
Representative potato growers of tiie
district in the persons of Messrs. R.
H. Clark, H. P. Allberr..*. G. R. Bates
and W. J. C. Hannah were In attendance in connection with the forthcoming Potato Fair at New Westminster.
Mr. Bates proposed tllat the Board
of Trade co-operate with the potato
growers in staging a district potato
display at the Fair, which would
doubtless be attended by a large
number of people. Tills, he thought,
would be the kind of advertising the
district needed. The Comox Valley
contained the finest potato land in B.
C. Mr. Allberry outlined the kind of
j exhibit that It was proposed to send
I and thought more Interest should be
j taken in the matter.   There would be
that the Board of Trade would welcome farmers as members of the
Board, "We must co-operate with each
other" he said "we cannot work by
ourselves." Messrs. Geo. W. Edwards
and E. Felix Thomas were appointed
a commltete of two to prepare the
necessary properties for staging the
exhibit. Mr. W. A. B. Paul introduced
a resolution regarding the duty of
eggs coming Into this country from
the United States which carried unanimously, and a copy of which is to
be sent to the Federal member, Mr.
A. W. Neill at Ottawa. He pointed
out that the district was very well
suited to poultry farming which is a
growing industry here although as
yet only ln Its Infancy. It was going
to grow enormously and should be
encouraged so that lt can take the
place of the logging Industry which
ls gradually getting farther and farther away.
