CROW'S NEST PASS SHOWS SUBSTANTIAL FALLING OFF
VICTORIA, Augi 4.—Coal production In British Columbia for the alx
months ended June 30 showed a decline of 112,759 long tons, ae compared
with the total out put In the same
period In 1925, according to figures
made publlc here by Hon. William
Sloan, minister of mines.
The aggregate output by all collieries In the province was 1,062,343
long tons, as compared with 1,175,102
In 1925. The conditions which In the
early months of the year affected production, namely, competition of fuel
oil and quietness In demand, continue
to be the main factors for the falling
off In production.
On Vancouver Island a total of
576,003 tons were mined In the six
months period, compared with 657,287
tons in 1926, a falling off of 81,284
tons. It is to be noted tbat while
other producing concerns show de-
Colllerles (Dunsmuir) Limited exceeded the output in the' lirst six
cllnes In production, the Canadian
months of 1925 by 8091 tons. In fact,
of all the companies operating In
British Columbia, the Canadian Collieries is the only one to run ahead
of last year's output. The shutting
down of the Wakeslah Mine of the
Western Fuel Corporation Limited
has curtailed output by that company,
which Is 35,987 tons behind tbe 1925
figure.
For the six months period the Nicola-Princeton collieries show a slight
Increase over 1926, the figures being
79,676, sb against 77,210, but in the
Crow's Nest Pass district the aggregate out put of the Coal Creek, Michel
and Corbln collieries fell off 32,691
tons, this year's output being 405,914,
compared with 438,605 tons In tbe
Drat half of 1925.

VISITORS SWARM
OVER HJM.S. CURLEW
COURTENAY, Aug. 2—A large
number of townspeople took advantage of the glorious weather to motor
to Comox during the week end for
the purpose of going aboard the visiting cruiser, II.M.S. Curlew. On Sunday morning, a number of the men
from both the Curlew and tho Patrician paraded to the little church at
Comox, when many residents attended and the service was conducted by
the Rev. . W. Corker. During the
afternoon the Curlew fairly swarmed
with visitors, some of whom were
thoughtful enough to take bunches of
flowers and bundles of newspapers,
etc., tor the benefit of the sailors. On
Monday afternoon many car owners
of Courtenay placed themselves and
their cars at the disposal of the men
of the war ships under the auspices
of the Courtenay-Comox Board of
Trade. In this way a large number
of the sailors were taken tor a tour
of the beautiful Comox Valley, and
lt la safe to say that most ot the visitors are by this time confirmed boosters for Vancouver Island.
COURTENAY, Aug. 4.—A special
meeting of the Comox-Courtenay
Board of Trade was held lu the City
Hall on Tuesday night for the pur:
poae of discussing ways and means
of putting the Courtenay saw mill
Into operation. Before commencing
the usual routine business, president
Wm. Eadie. culled upon Mr. Theed
Pearse for a short history of tiie mill.
Mr. Pearse pointed out how the mill
had passed through various hands
until it had been purchased from Mr.
MacDonald, of New Westminster, by
Mr. C. D. Bridges, the present owner.
Before its last operating period It had
been equipped at over 1100,000 with
a capacity cut of 50,000 feet of lumber a day, which was sometimes
pushed to 60,000. That was the position some four years ago when operations ceased. The machinery had
been properly cared for. At the beginning of the present year a private
company was formed with a proposed
capital of 1100,000, and this has since
been converted Into a public company
and It was now the Intention to Interest sufficient local capital with a view
to starting an industry and a pay roll
ln the city. Mr. W. M. Oalbralth, of
Messrs Pemberton and Son, Victoria,
had recently inspected the property
and had reported the machinery io
be in good condition and the mill
buildings and equipment to be in u
good state of repair. The .operation
of this mill would, he thought, make
a pay roll of 1(5,000 per month, which
would be a benefit to all In Courtenay.
Mr. Eadle then called on Mr. Robt.
8. Mabee, manager of the bond department of Pemberton and Son, who
said that two or three leading citizens
of Courtenay had recently interviewed
Mr. Pemberton In Victoria with the
Idea of getting assistance in financing
this project. Mr. Mabee felt safe in
saying his department would help If
a reasonable proportion of thc capital
required was forthcoming from the
residents of Courtenay. Lumber mills
of Michigan and the Southern States
were dismantling aud coming further
west and north west, he said. There
was always a certain bit of gumble
in the milling business owing tn the
ups and dons of the lumber market.
Mr. O. W. Edwards ,a local lumber
operator, spoke of the advantages to
tbe trade and to the consumer, of a
lumber mill situated in Courtenay.
Mr. B. Hughes considered that such
a mill would have the very desirable
effect of stabilizing the price of local
logs and pointed out that when the.
loggers of the district are tied up, a
great number of local accounts are
tied up too. Other speakers on the
subject were Messrs. O. H. Kirk, F.
C. Brock and C. I). Bridges. Mr, Mlt-
bee said he had no doubt that if Hie
mill was properly financed und economically managed, It would be n success. After a good ileal of discussion
It was decided that a bond siiIohuiuii
from the Victoria firm should come
to Courtenay ufter it had beeu ascertained that a reasonable proportion
of the necessary capital is procurable
here. It Is proposed to mako tlie j
shares available to merchants and
others who may have most of their
capital tied up in their business.

harrassed anil debt-ridden city man who had a
sick wife and several unmanageable daughters—
we call them flappers today. Briefly, the plot of
the story was woven about the tired city man's
determination to give up the struggle in the big
town and move into the country. He did just
that. The wife got well, the girls acquired some
sense and the little   family   lived   happily   ever
after.
lf that story was true thirty years ago, it is
infinitely more true today. The advantages ol
city living are being brought more and more lo
the small towns each year, while the advantages
of country living never can be found in the big
city. Today the small towns have paved streets
and automobiles, with the advantage that you
can sometimes find a place to park in the small
town. The small town has good schools with
gymnasiums, shower baths and basketball teams.
ln the country towns you will find movie theatres,
electric lights, golf clubs, bridge clubs, telephones
good shops and friendly banks. It is a very
small town indeed that will not afford any woman, now, far more in comforts and conveniences
than Cleopatra had in her magnificent barge on
the Nile.
As for friends and neighbors, you will find
them a hundredfold more sincere and helpful in
the small town than they are in the city.    If you
doubt this, attend the noon luncheon of a Rotary
Club in the liig city, and the next day attend the
luncheon of a Rotary Club in a small town.   In
the city club the men stand around a hotel lobby
until the head waiter opens the dining room door
and they file in like mourners going to a funeral.
They eat in dignified silence or to the wild strains
of a jazz orchestra.   At the  conclusion  of  the
luncheon, Prof. MacDoodle,   from   Fiddledeedee,
talks on "The European War Debt," and then
they file out in silence.   Note the difference at
nified acquaintances, genuine friendship.   Which
is worth more in this brief span of life?

"The Radio Detective"
CHAPTER XXIV
**THK  WIRELESS BOMB**
As we stood, temporarily defeated
even in our success, Kennedy's mind
was now working rapidly on the next
problem of what it was that the desperadoes contemplated at five o'clock.
"I think I can get an inkling of it,"
remarked Kennedy. "I cant forget
the last part of that message from
our friend K903 in Deer Park—'Kennedy and Jameson away from Evans
hoathouse.'' He paused a moment.
"That's a reason for fearing for the
hoathouse."
Easton turned quickly, A blow at
the Radio Shack was a blow at his
heart.
"But. how would they know that we
were away," I asked. "No ono has
seen  us on this trip."
"Why, Hank and his radio." explained Easton.
"I'l guarantee it's something to do
with that Radio Shack~aml Ken. It's
neary four thirty now. We must get
there hy five!    Come on!
Eaaton was afraid. "And my radio-
pane is there loo!" he exclaimed.
"We'll take the shore road. We can
make it if we don't get pinched!"
Kennedy wasted no more time over
the wrecked gray racer. It was Dick
we must save, first, then catch the
perpetrators of the great   radio -rob
bery. He was driving the car to thc
limit.
While we were racing against time,
on board the Scooter the mysterious
individual in the main cabin turned
to the radio sending outfit and had
started to get in touch with someone
on the land.
Hank was at the very moment expecting a message. Over the air now
came his orders. "Tow that thing in
the old duck boat out of the shed and
leave it under the Evans Radio Shack
before five.    Be sure.    Before five.
Hank got it and replied with alacrity that he would dn it. Then he
started oul of the room on the run
to execute  his  orders.
It was not long before Hank was
unlocking the door on a shed huili
out over the water at the other end
of the harbor, In the shed, floating
was a little duck boat, covered over
except for the cockpit in which the
duck hunter sat. What was in the
boat Hank himself could not. have told
precisely, He had heen warned to
let it alone under pain of deatli.
Anchored out in the harbor from
the shed Hank had at a mooring, a
little one-lung, two-cycle engine in a
small motor boat. It was with this
little open motor boat that Hank had
been directed to tow the duck boat
to its destination.
Across   the   harbor   Hank   started
with his chug-chug. He was bound
to deliver that duck boat and its contents before five. Out across the center of the harbor he circled.
Now he was Hearing the Radio
Shack. Would someone interfere al
the last moment?   What if he should
j meet Ken and  some  other  members
bit
die's barks.   It was fierce and deep,
betokened  something  wrong.
Ken   paused   a   moment.    In   that
pause he more than fancied he heard
a deep vibration  below.   Was that a
one-cylinder    motor? - Down     under
the Radio Shack?    Ken climbed down
the sides to where the sounds evidently came  from.   Sure  enough.   There
was his friend Hank striving to shove
under the  radioplane hangar a covered duck boat.
"Hey!    Whal  are  you  doing?"
"None   of  your   business!"     Hank
was   nervous.   Ken    was   suspicious.
"Take that thing away,"
"Come on and try it yourself!"
Ken  leaped  aboard  the little boat
with  its  engine  running,  swung  the
rudder nn ho threw  in the propeller.
The boat moved off, pulling after It
the duck boat.
"I.i'ggn!"    Hank with a snarl made
a leap toward Ken.    Tlie boys strug-

of the troop?   Hank  wus just a
nervous and keyed up.
So far, so good.   He had come to
tlie landing doek aud shut down his
little motor, nosing his way in toward
! the piling.   No sign of activity ut the
Radio Shack.   This was well, was his
thought.
Hank  was  almost  within  sight ol*
I success when he heard a loud hark-
j ing upstairs.
I    "Confound il!    It's that collie, I.ail-
! die.**
I     l.iiddie continued bis harking, Laddie hail many kinds of harks.   There
was one for

thai Hank had excited*   Luilil
ed louder.
Hank hurried. Perhaps, If he was
able to untie,this duck boat and tie
' it up securely under the piling he
, might get away, then Laddie would
quiet down. And once the cause of
1 the excitement was removed he would
f never in time disclose what had hap-
1 pened to Inlcrfer with Hunk's evil
' plans.
Ken, however, was playing in the
i kind of luck that comes to a boy who
| is always on the job. How he wished
j be bad heen along on that radio truck
i ing expedition with his uncle! But
then he could not complain, Between
Kuth und Vira, Ken bud not found
existence exactly dull and uninteresting in out- absence. Well, there was
tlie Radio Shack anyway. It was safe.
Laddie had heen there.
What wus that? Ken paused, then
hastened his steps. Laddie was barking at something and Ken knew Lad-

Kenedy, Easton ami myself swung
In the cur up the cliff road. I dont
want any more road races like that,
ever. "What's that out there? Is
that Ken?"   Huston  pointed.
"It's not only Ken, but it's Hank,"
exclaimed Craig Craig us he pulled
up the car and we looked. "What's
it ail about—this fight?"
Far off up the Sound, wiih a glance
at his chronometer, the mysterious
individual in the cabin depressed a
key on the wireless detonator.
Echoing among the Rockledge hills
came the blowing of tlie five o'clock
whistle on the power house.
it we had been closer we might
huve seen a spark in the dark Interior of Hie duck boat as a fust was
lighted, burning rapidly.
Hank had had some idea what ft
was all about. The echo of the whistle
brought ft home to him suddenly. He
broke from Ken, ran to the bow, poised to jump.   Ken. after him.
Suddenly between tho boys on the
boat and ourselves on tbe shore, there
came a most gaudy explosion.—
wreckage, smoke, a column of water,
from that thing that the motorboat
had been towing.
We could not see the boys at all.
Had it got them? Was Ken blown to
bits like that wreckage that (lew iu

settled down on the harbor?

Dr. E. R. Hicks. These two medical
men have given very satisfactory
services as usual during the past
twelve months.
Alexandra Ward
In connection with this ward there
have been no complaints of any description and we did not And It necessary to make any repairs, although
the hospllal In general ls 111 a bud
state and needs a lot of work done on
It. I am Informed that the Hospital
Board have In view extensive alterations and additions to the hospital,
and Intend asking for some assistance
from your Board ill this connection.
Cemetery
During the past year we did not do
any work ln the cemetery although
at the close of the year we found the
cemetery grounds were badly in need
of a general overhauling. This has
been sanctioned by the Board.
Hospital
Our agreement with the Directors
of the Cumberland General Hospital
has worked out very satisfactorily
during the year and we have made
our payments promptly.
During the past twelve months we
have been working under a very
heavy handicap. Owing to our expenses exceeding our revenue It has
taken very careful handling of the
funds to keep our expenditures within
reasonable bounds, and 1 think that
your Board ia very fortunate in not
having a greater deficit than {826.56.
For the coining year I cannot see any
very great improvement In our revenue and no doubt our expenses will

LOGGING COMPANY
TO CO-OPERATE
WITH FAIR OFFICIALS
COURTENAY, Aug. 2.—Arrangements for the 192G Fall Fair to be
held on September 7th  and 8th are
well under way. It is understood
thnt the Agricultural Association will
again be joined by the Comox Logging
Co.'s annual picnic, making a big
day's events. The sports committee

das nre taking in hand the necessary
repairs and improvements to the Fail-
Grounds.
Last year, owing to other arrangements, the Ladles' Auxiliary of thc
Agricultural Association did not
provide the refreshments. Tbe lack
of their catering was felt, but the
ladles have consented to cater this
year to those desiring the excellent
refreshments they provide. Mesdames M. McPhee,- W. Brown and D.
Bell havo undertaken this work on
behalf of the auxiliary.
Two of the directors, Messrs. M. S.
Stephens and W. J. GUnn, are taking
iu hand the matter of providing more
adequate poultry accomodation.   At a
recent meeting of   the   Association's
directors  it  was pointed out by Jlr.

! than ever before.   A number of valu-
', able cups und special    prizes    have
I heen secured and are Included in this
I year's prize list.   The association  is
I also offering a number of silver troph-
| les for certain classes.
'    While the Agricultural Association

! ance of the property to the association.

POTATO FIELD DAY
WAS SUCCESSFUL ONE
COURTENAY, Aug. 2— The Potato
Field Day held In this district on!
Thursday, in spite of rain showers,
proved lo be a profitable occasion tor
the growers. A number of farms
were visited, tho weather Improving
as Ihe tour progressed. .Mr. J. W.
Easlham, plant pathologist from Vancouver, and Mr. W. Downes. Provincial Entomologist of Victoria, were the
visiting demonstrators and pointed
out the plants that were affected by
diseases or insects in the different
Holds Inspected. Some fifty Interested
farmers attended and took full advantage of the demonstrations aud
lectures delivered. Among the fields
vlslled during the afternoon were
those of Messrs R. Jl. Halliday, G. R.
Bates, H. P. Allherry, Fred Swan, R.
U. Hurford and D. Evans. The experimental plot of the district agriculturist (Jlr, E. R. Bewell) was also
inspected where a great deal of valuable information was secured. Mr.
Eastlinm drew attention to four different kinds of potato mosaic which
he termed "rugose, mottled, streak
and pebbled," aud Informed his hearers that there are eight different kinds
of this disease altogether. The pebbled variety was conspicuously in evi
dence in one of these groups where
some experiments were made with
j Green Mountain seed which was very
had last year, when about eighty per
cent of tbe crop was mosaic or blank.
This year there's about eighty per.
cent of the crop mosaic, which clearly demonstrated the necessity of discarding seed as soon as mosaic shows
up to any extent, lthlzoctonia was
found' doing its work here and there,
and several plants which have a similar appearance to rhizoctonia plants
wero fuund to be effected by wire
worms which do considerable damage. They are bard to control. Planting late crops appears to be the only
way to get ahead of them, it is said.
Black leg. another serious disease,
was found in one instance. It Is not
generally found here but it should be
eradicated where ever found, in fact,
all these diseases should lie known by
every grower and he should take the
steps necessary to control thein. The
use of good seed Is the first thing,
and good seed can only lie maintained
by selecting the healthiest hills and
trying to improve yearly. Some insect Injury waa also noticed caused
by the potato leaf hopper and potato
flea beetle. These Insects and green
aphis wliieh help spread tbe disease
mosaic and allied diseases, can be
controlled by spraying, whlchls a
good practice to follow. It Is hoped
tbat an Illustrated lecture may he
arranged for one evening Ibis autumn
as Mr. Eastman bas agreed lo return
to Courtenay fur tliat purpose later
lu the year. The potato Held day,
which was held under Ihe auspices of
the Comox Valley Potato Growers'
Association, was in every way a sue-

COURTENAY, Aug. 2.—On Friday
last al St. George's United Church,
Beatrice Laut-cna, eldest daughter of
Jlr. aud .Mrs. William Jlountfort
Dauncey. and Norman, eldest son of

The bride was attired ln a dress of

Annand attended the bride as bridesmaid, dressed in blue georgette with
hat to match. Jlr. Alvln Parkin
acted as best man.
The' ceremony was performed by
the Rev. Mr. Alexander, pastor of St.
George's United Church. During the
signing of the register the bride's
father sang "God Gave You to Me."
Following the ceremony a reception
was held in Booth's Hall, where the
numerous presents wcre displayed,
and where many friends of the couple
spent the night singing and dancing,
lefreshments being served and the
bridal cake cut. After the festivity

CONDENSED MILK
ABSOLUTELY PURE
The value of condensed milk as a
guardian of health was curiously
demonstrated by an Item In the London Daily Mail recently, one sentence
in the article reading:
"The complete replacement nt fresh"
milk by condensed milk has notably
reduced tuberculosis."
. The story had to dcui with the activities of the London Zoological
Society and was reporting on the
health of the animals. Many, animals,
especially those with cloven hooves,
were liable to epidemics of bovine
tuberculosis. Tbe antelopes seemed
to die of nothing else. Yet they
lived under very good conditions and
were given generous daily draughts
of fresh milk. Then the fresh milk
wns cut off and the tinned variety
substituted. A marked Improvement
followed and tubercle has been stumped out In the antelope paddocks. Tbe
Borden Company Limited, who put up
Eagle Brand Condensed Milk, have
long advocated It as an Infant food
on Ibe ground of Its being absolutely
pure as well as uniform. This Incident would seem to hear out the
statement Ihat, save for mother's
milk, there is no milk so safe for the
Infant as Eagle Brand.

City Council Notes
Little business was transacted at
Monday's regular meeting of the City
Council, when the full board, with the
exception of Alderman Mumford, was
in attendance. For the water committee, Aid. Symons reported the
shortage this year would probably not
reach the serious proportions of last,
as there was a fair supply on hand.
However, the resrtictlons imposed by
the Water Company were still in
effect and will continue so until all
danger of a shortage Is passed. The
boulevards were being watered each
evening and the burned look wns
gradually disappearing from them.
One Are call was reported during
the past week, the chemical truck
making a hurried trip to Union Bay
to attend a fire at the Chapman home.
Costs of this trip will be charged to
the property owner.
CONTRACTS LET
Two contracts were let, one for the
painting of the Inside and stairs of
the fire hail, and the other for renewing the foundation under the police
chief's residence. These were given
respectively to H. Parkinson and R.
Little.
FINANCES ARE (,'OOI>
The auditor's report for the six
months ending June 30th received
favorable comment. It showed a total expenditure of 16,546.48 against
receipts of $11,179.6!). Bills and
accounts for the two weeks ended

surfacing flic street from the old
