Committees are being appointed to
handle the arrangements.
This ball ls one ot the biggest social
events ot the season and there Ib no
doubt that the affair this year will
be even more successful than previous
ones.
The City Council held a special
meeting on Friday evening to consdier
the telegrams received In connection
with the recent disaster of No. 4 mine.
His Worship Mayor Parnham occupied
the chair and outlined the object ot
the special gathering, Btatlng that
several telegrams had been received
offering financial assistance. He stated several widows and orphans may
need some assistance, the local mines
not having been working very steady
during the past few months and no
doubt several families were in destitute circumstances, and pointed out
that the management of the Canadian
Collieries (Dunsmuir) Lmtlted, were
sending out two clergymen to ascertain and relieve the Immediate needs
of any that may be found in need of
assistance.
Often of Assistance
The Mayor said he greatly appreciated these prompt and kind offers ol
financial assistance. The City Clerk
then read the telegrams received,
by bis worship, which were as follows:
"Victoria, B. C, Feb. 9, 1923
"On behalf of the province permit
me to extend sincere sympathy to the
people of Cumberland. The Government of British Columbia Is prepared
to render all possible assistance towards alleviating the distress and suffering resulting form yesterday's disaster.
"J. D. MACLEAN,
"Acting Premier.'
"Victoria, Feb. 9, 1923.
"Deeply regret disaster which has
brought distress and suffering to
Cumberland. My sincere sympathy
goss out to bereaved families. Government ls prepared to extend ever)
possible assistance.
"WM. SLOAN,
"Minister of Mines.'''
"Horrified to hear ot terrible disaster In your district. Please advise
If any assistance needed. Convey out
deepest sympathy.
"DRENNAN,
"Provincial Sec.-Treas., G.W.V.A.'
"Nanaimo, Feb. 9, 1923
"The  citizens   of  Nanaimo  extend
their heartfelt sympathy to the citizens of Cumberland and vicinity in the
appalling loss sustained by your community ln the disaster of yesterday.
"F. A. BUSBY,
"Mayor."
"Vancouver, Feb. 9, 1923
"Vancouver ls appalled at the extent of the disaster that occurred in
one of your mines yesterday evening,
and we regret that pending receipt of
advice from you we can only extend
to the unfortunate families who have
Buffered so irreparable a loss our
heartfelt sympathy. If there is anything we can do ln the way of providing food or clothing for the bereaved or In the opening of a subscription in their behalf, kindly have
no hesitation in calling upon the citizens of this clyt who I am sure will
readily and cheerfully respond.
"CHAS. TISDALL,
"Mayor."
"Ladysmith, Feb. 9, 1923.
"Please convey to relatives and
friends of all deceased and injured the
deepest sympathy and regrets of the
citizens ot Ladysmith.
"W. W. WALKEM.
"Mayor."
Aid. Maxwell said he thought there
would be several needy cases; the
miners had only been working part
time for the last twelve months. He
did not know of any case that needed
immediate relief. Should the city decide to make an appeal for assistance
to outside centres lt should be done ln
a general way and establish a fund
that will take care of the widows and
orphans In the years that are to come.
Alderman Partridge agreed with the
sentiments expressed and thought it
advisable to accept the kind offers of
assistance and establish a fund and
appoint an executive to take care of
she money and its distribution.
Alderman Potter addressed the
Council along similar lines and moved
that the Council accept the various
kind offers ot assistance and send out
a general appeal.
The City Clerk was instructed to
accept financial assistance from the
Provincial Government.
It was suggested by members ot
the Council that the Mayor call a public meeting at a later date for the purpose of appointing a secretary-treasurer and a board of trustees to take
charge ot the relief fund.
Resolution of Condolence
It was decided to send a letter
of condolence to the relatives of the
deceased, which was adopted as follows:
"I am Instructed by the Mayor and
Aldermen to convey to you their heartfelt sympathy for your late bereavement. We realize that words are but
little consolation and that time alone
can dull the edge of your sorrow, a
sorrow which Is shared by all of your
fellow citizens. We beg you to
realize that this is not merely a formal
letter of condolence, but a real, though
slight expression of our feelings toward you ln this your great trouble.
"Yours sincerely,
"A. J. FOURACRE,
"City Clerk."
The City Clerk was instructed to
purchase a large wreath of flowers to
the value of $25 on behalf of the city
to the deceased as a whole and not individually.
City's Replies to Offers
The following replies to the telegrams were sent out by the City Clerk,
signed by Mayor Parnham:
Hon. Minister of Mines,
"Victoria, B. C.
"Please accept the grateful thanks
of the citizens of Cumberland for your
kind telegram of sympathy for the
bereaved families of the mine disaster.
Offer of Government assistance gratefully accepted. Am taking matter up
with City Council tonight end will advise later. Injured are progressing as
favorably as expected."
"Hon. J. D. Maclean,
"Acting Premier, Victoria.

appreciation of your kind telegram of

Boyd Oliver
Gives Address
at Courtenay
Co-operative Marketing Is Explained
In Common Sense Manner
to Big Audience.
COURTENAY.—Capt. G. Robert
Bates acted as chairman at a meeting
held In the Agricultural Hall Monday
night to listen to an address and advice given by Mr. Boyd Oliver, the
celebrated specialist on co-operatlou,
who came to British Columbia with
bis chief, Mr. Aaron Saplro, at the
solicitation of the Department of Agriculture.
The address delivered by Mr. Oliver
certainly was full of Inspiration, and
though he may have said some things
that some of the audience of one hundred thought they knew before, he
said tbem In such a convincing manner, and added so much more that
was relevant to the question that when
the hour for dispersing arrived, everyone left the building fully convinced
that the only method by which the
agricultural industry or any branch
of lt can be put on a satisfactory paying basis is by the Inauguration of a
thoroughly organized and systematically carried out plan of co-operative
marketing by the producers. In his
opening remarks Mr. Oliver said that
though he Is a Callfornlan and would
have occasion to refer to what has
been done In the southern state In the
way of co-operation and the success
that has been achieved thereby in the
Interests of the farmers, particularly
the fruit growers, he did not want the
meeting to think he was there for the
purpose of boasting, but for the sole

REV. WM. ELLIOTT
SENDS MESSAGE
The following letter was received by
Rev. Jos. Hood from Rev. Wm. Elliott.
now of Victoria, who was minister
of Grace Methodist Church here during the year 1915:
"After reading of the frightful disaster which has come to the Cumberland people, as reported in the Victoria Times yesterday and today, Mrs.
Elliott and I feel that we must express ourselves to them In some way.
and we, very naturally, remembered
the great rally ln your church when
we, In 1915, had our heaviest loss anil
sorrow, and tbe many tokens of real
kindness we then received. So wc
wish to tell those same people, as
nearly as you can, especially any nf
them wbo are direct sufferers, how
deeply our hearts beat in sympathy
with all those who are bereaved or
Injured. Tell the brave fellows who
took seemingly fatal risks to save
their brother miners how truly wc admire their splendid devotion to them
"Perhaps It would not be out of
place to ask you to refer to what we
have communicated to you In your
church, where you held that never-
to-be-forgotten service on our behalf.
I am sorry this letter will not reach
you In time to do that tomorrow, even
If you think well to accept our suggestion. But those bleeding hearts
will need soothing, even next Sunday,
and possibly these words may help a
little.

Men And Company
Fail To Reach
An Agreement
Two Meetings Held and Resolutions
Passed   Situation Is Very
('rare al Present
At thc public meeting held ln the
Union hall on Tuesday evening the
question of Orientals employed In thc
coal mines was discussed and several
resolutions were adopted.
John McAllister, occupied the chair
and Samuel Guthrie, Socialist member
for Newcastle, was among the speakers. As a result of the meeting ten
men, Messers. J. Robb, D. Perrettl, S.
Williams, F. Simlster, Henry Walker,
J. Hannah, J. Enrico, R. Coe Jr., Geo.
Brown and J. .McAllister were selected as a grievance committee to present the following resolution to the
management of the Canadian Collieries
(Dunsmuir) Limited.
The Resolutions
"Be it resolved that the white minors of Cumberland demand  the  expulsion of Orientals from tbe mines as
they are considered detrimental to life
and limb In the process of coal mining in this community.
"Be It resolved that the miners of
I Cumberland are agreed that longwali
j work in No. 4 mine is detrimental to
i life and limb and request that same
i be eliminated.
"Be it resolved that these resolutions be presented by a committee selected from the public meeting to the
! management   of   the   Canadian   Collieries  (Dunsmuir) Limited, for con-
i slderation, as early as possible."
i    The grievance committee presented
| the   resolution   to   Thomas   Graham,
i General Superintendent of the Canadian Collieries, on Thursday morning.
The Interview was vory pleasant, relations were of tbe best.    The committee was told, after giving the matter careful consideration, that all advance work In No. 4 mine would be
discontinued and tbat work would be
commenced on tbe pillars and a start
made to come back.
The discussion was of a very conciliatory nature, thc management
seemingly willing to meet tbe wishes
of their employees In every way possible. Orientals will not be employed
on any new work, and will be taken
out of the mines as Boon as possible.
The committee conveyed their report lo the meeting ot the employees
held In the Union hall on Thursday
evening, and after a session of three
hours rejected the company's proposal
by a vote of 73 to 52, which creates a
very grave and serious situation.
The very fact of discontinuing all
advance work In Nu. 4 mine eliminates all long wall work. The promise
that no Chinese will be employed ou
any new work and that they will be
taken out of the mines as early as possible should he satisfactory.
Thomas Graham, General Superintendent of the Canadian Collieries, has
given the miners of this district the
only concrete proposal for taking the
Oriental out of the mines. Representatives of labor for the past thirty
years have beon knocking at the doors
of Federal Provincial and Imperial
Governments without result and when
all others fall Mr. Graham promises
to take tho Orientals out, but they
cannot be removed lu a night.
Space will not permit us makliiK
any further statements on thc situation in this Issue.

"Howwonld you feel If you wakened
in the middle of the night with a
flashlight shining in your eyes and
tbe gruff voice of a man threatening
that, 'If you make the slightest noise,
I'll shoot?' That was my experience
the end of last March when my husband was away in the woods and I
wa* alone with my three children,
Bverytime I think of this experience
a shudder passes over nie and aa long
as I live I shall remember it. At the
time I really thought I would die.
It's a wonder my heart did not stop
beating I was so weak that even if
I had any desire to move, I could not.
I was bathed in a cold, clammy pers-
Siratlon Even to recall tlie shocking
etaili now makes me shudder. It
was a result of this shock that I
contracted a high fever and for hours
at a time I was delirious, I got so
bad that the doctor finally gave up
hope of my ever recovering, but by
careful nursing, I was finally pronounced out of danger The shock
bad left me ao weak, that, for no
reason whatever, I would suddenly
burst into tears All the life seemed
to hay* been taken ont of me.   I kept
getting weaker and weaker, to much
so that my husband and children
were constantly worrying about me.
Doctors prescribed for me and while
I willingly tried their medicines, only
very few of tbem did nie auy good,
but unfortunately the good was not
lasting. My family asked me if I
would try Carnol and I said, 'I was
willing to try anything,' but felt that
It would not do me any good. Four
bottles of Carnol taken regularly, ha*
completely restored my former health
and strength and, while I occasionally
recall my experience with the burglar
with feelingsof horror, X amotherwise
aa well and strong as I have ever
been, Carnol is the most wonderful I
preparation I have ever nsed for
building and restoring health and
Strength. It has done wonders for
several of my friends to whom I have
recommended it."   Mrs. McC. of....
Carnol ia sold by your druggist,

SOME ENQUIRIES
REGARDING THE FIRE
RELIEF COMMITTEE
The following open letter has been
received with a request for publication:
The Secretary,
.Mervllle Fire Relief Committee,
Courtenay, B. C.
Dear Sir,—Seeing that there Is such
an Immense dissatisfaction over the
distribution of the relief fund, will it
not be for the benefit of the whole district that a financial statement be published, and to also answer the following questions:
1. Is it true that the money was
given out according to the standing
the settler hnd with the L. S. B. or
S. S. I!., taking into consideration
whether the settler had any stock to
feed or debts to pay?
2. ls it true that allowances were
made out of tlie relief fund, to buy
feed for stock, In other words was
feed for stock put before food and
clothing for women and children?
3. Is it true that eleven cases of
new bedding, whicli was donated by
the merchants of Victoria and expressed to-Courtenay shortly after the
fire, mysteriously disappeared?
4. Is it true that a number who did
not suffer loss, received money or
requisitions for new clothing out of
the fund?
6. Is it true that a confinement
case In hospital was paid for out of
the relief fund, although tho fire was
nowhere near their home?
li. Is it true that Individual cases,
such as n buggy, were fully recompensed out of thc fund?
7. Is it true that new hardware was
issued and paid for out of the relief
fund, to certain ones who said their's
were smoked, although the fire was
not near their home?
Is it true that single men received
moro llian married men In proportion
to llieir losses?
I). Is it true that a member of the
relief committee Is anxious for an Investigation?
Id. Is it true that another member said that it would not do for a
financial statement to be published
yet; things will have to be quietened
down first, ns there will be such a
liull-a-ball-oo when it is published.
11. How was it that the secondhand
clothes collected by the Klwanis Club
of Vancouver directly after the fire
for immediate use, only arrived in
Mervllle on January 4, six months
after the fire, and the snme being shipped as blankets?
The only way to clear the atmosphere will be to publish a financial
statement showing:
The name of each Individual who
had a requisition giving date, amount,
and to whom paid.
Thc actual amount collected.
Tho actual amount which reached
the fire sufferers.
Those people who were not burned
out, but who were ordered out of the
fire area, are not fire sufferers.

THE SWEETEST MUSIC
A clerk In a nearby internal revenue
ollice remarked on the day that the
last Income tax returns were brought
in, that as a general thing, the shabbier clothes people woro, the bigger a
return they handed ln. Perhaps lie j
exaggerated. Yet men came in who
did not look as If they could sign a
check for three figures, but showed up
property worth hundreds of thousands. This converse relation of
chillies and property is noticed In all
stages of society. Savings banks officials, particularly those dealing with
recent immigrants, bear similar testimony. A Pole or Hungarian creeps
humbly into the bank, as if he doubted
his right to stand on its marble slabs
in the presence of free born and lordly
Canadians. An Inexperienced clerk
might feel like setting a dog on him
as a tramp. Lo, and behold, he pulls
out a greasy but protruding wallet,
and begins to count out the tens and
twenties, all soiled and redolent of long
repose in his perspiration-soaked pocket. When the "wad' is complete, it
is aeverai times as much aa the fashion-plate clerk behind the counter
could produce. In business life, good
clothes arc the badge of hope and ambition. A well-creased pair of trous-
erB gives a man a Bense of confidence
that religion can scarce bestow. Well-
fitting and cared-for clothes suggest
both past Buccess antl habits of attention to detail that cannot fail to Impress a stranger favorably. However,
once the big golden goal of wealth is
reached, the character often tends to
soften. A man rises later In the morning nnd abates his habits of Industry.
Also the minor amenities of life may
begin to look formidable. Brushing
oil dust, polishing boots and scrupulous cleanliness may seem an effort.
Man is at his best in many ways In
his dayB of Btrugglo aud toil and smart
A wealthy man residing in an exclusive apartment house recently
established the custom of bringing
groups of city poor children to his
place and turning them loose in his
lonely bachelor quarters to enjoy
themselves as only children can do.
A number o[ the nerve-racked fashr
lonable dwellers In the apartment
house soon joined in a petition to have
the nuisance stopped. When haled Into
court, the lover of children observed:
"There is no court in the land that
can check a child's laughter." The
judge believed and agreed with him,
but sustained the rights of the petitioners, and the children's parties lu
that particular location were forbidden.
We love the glorious music of the
great composers — it is something
caught from the source of Divinity;
but we, perhaps the most of us, better
love thc sweet and simple melodies
which, bubbling from the heart, Issue
from the lips of children to an accompaniment of echoing lnughter.
The singing of children, and their
happy laughter—what would this
world be without them? A hell so sad
that other tortures would serve as a
welcome relief to doomed bouIs!
The child-loving philosopher of the
city flat was right. Singing and
laughter give happiness not alone lo
the youth that sings and laughs, but to
all hearts that yearn for happiness,
surely to all aching, despairing hearts.
But such music is not appreciated by
the selfish residents of a fashionable
apartment house.
In the memory of every normal individual must live the songs and
laughter of innocent childhood, the
mother songs—Boft lullabies which
mingle with the flickering firelight of
winter eves, woo tired eyes to closo
until the sandman on his dream ship
comes to bear the sleeper away, away
through opalescent song-haunted Beas,
whero care never was, nor grief, nor
pain.
No, there is no court in the land can
HEN FRUIT
A rooster had been born and brought up entirely
within his own chicken yard. Surrounded with more
wives than the ex-Sultan of Turkey, he felt no inclination to explore the outside world until one day a dog
got into the chicken yard and chased him.
He dived into a clump of weeds and unexpectedly
hit a hole in the fence and was free in a groat open lot
that happned to be an ostrich farm.
Rooster-like, he strutted about the place until quite
by accident he discovered an ostrich egg.
To him it was a great revelation!
He rolled it back into his own yard and called his
harem about him.
"Girls," said he, "1 do not wish to be unkind. 1
do not wish to cast any aspersions on the wonderful
work you have done, but I would like to call your attention to what they are doing in other places."
Now we claim to make Al electrical installations.

OBSERVATIONS OF
A FEDERAL M. P.
Cold Weather In Ottawa—House Soon
Settled Down to Business—BUI
to Retruliite Immigration.
OTTAWA, Feb. 6.—Thirty-three below and a wind! Said to be the coldest snap ln Ottawa for fifty years.
All across Canada from Vancouver,
the weather was pleasant though cold,
but seldom below ten above. We suffered as usual from the "torrid
climate*' of the cars. Eternal fame
awaits the M. P. who enacts a bill
that will compel car porters to keep
the temperature of cars down to a
reasonable figure. Half the Western
visitors have had bad colds and several cases of pneumonia have developed, largely, no doubt, due to being
parboiled en route.
Ottawa as a city is noted for Its frequent street car service and for the
hldeouB noise mado by them. One of
the very few cities In Canada having
a five-cent fare nowadays.
Furnished apartments cost from $76
to $200 a month and often have to be
taken a month before the session
opens,
Tne House settled down to business
quicker than usual and the speeches
of the three leaders on the address
were soon over. All made fitting and
graceful references to the memories
of the four members who have died
since the House laBt sat.
The Progressives moved an amendment (practically a vote of want of
confidence In the Government), setting
forth their free trade doctrine and a
further amendment was moved by
Capt. Shaw of Calgary, calling for
rigid economy. In his speech he announced that he was elected as an independent and intended to remain so,
a statement that caused soma surprise
seeing that he had been prominent In
all Progressive caucases last year and
was nominated as a candidate for
leader at the meeting held last November when Mr. Forke was elected ln
place of Hon. Mr. Crerar.
A "bill to regulate Immigration,"
modelled on the New Zealand act,
which was found effective there to
prevent Oriental Immigration, was
read the flrst time. This is customary.
Its passage or defeat will take place
on the second reading.

INSPIRING ADDRESS
AT COURTENAY
(Continued From Page 1.)
purpose of trying to assist the agrl
cultural producers of British Columbia
ln finding a solution for the problems
they are up against.
Take California's Lead
There was no reason to believe that
what had been done in California
could not be done ln this province and
tbat was why the Department of Agriculture had asked lilra to come and
talk to tbem. The trouble with the
farmer is that he is an individual and
lt is sometimes hard to make hlm believe that working lu harmony with
others would be to his advantage. That
had been the situation in his country,
and several attempts had been made
to organize, but without a great deal
of success until about twenty-five
years ago, when tlie orange growers
decided that they had been the prey
of the commission men long enough,
The California Fruit Growers' Association now embraced ninety-eight
per cent, of the growers of the state.
It had taken them almost fifteen years
to reach that point, and lt must not
be expected, should organization take
place in this province along similar
lines, that perfection would be reached
In a year or two. They could, how
ever, make some short cuts, profiting
by the errors that had been made ln
California when the movement was
first started.
The Fresno Example
As conclusive proof that it pays to
co-operate in tbe marketing of a product, he Instanced what had been done
at Fresno with raisins. A few years
ago Fresno was the Joke town of the
south, stony broke and a by-word.
Some of the raisin producers got together and started a raisin growers'
association with the result that ln the
« flrst year of operation they marketed
six hundred million packages of "Sun-
mold" raisins, putting California's
joke town ln the front rank as one
of the richest ln the state. The same
story was related of the egg producers ot Petaluma where the largest egg
, producing plant ln the world ls situat
ed. Co-operation means standardization, proper grading and better markets tor all, as shown by results attained by these three branches of industry, fruit growing, raisin production and egg production.
The flrst problem of the co-operative
producer should be to control the
home market, and when that waB done
they should remember that though a
monopoly would be created, it behooves them to be fair to the purchasing public and not take the attitude that because of the situation they
should take all possible from users
of their product. Above all things
they must be fair, then nnd only then,
would the market be assured. He said
he bad been through the province,
and ln various places had asked for
apples—he liked a baked apple for
breakfast—but could get none. He did
have Sunkist oranges from California
offered him. Tbere was no reason why
an American should have to come over
here to be offered the produce of his
own state when fruit that was Just as
good could be provided by the home
orchardist. A campaign ot proper
marketing would soon rectify this condition.
The Oriental Question
After the address Mr. Oliver answered some questions, one of which
was in respect to the Oriental question. He said that the California association accepted the Japanese as
members and found that once in the
organization they were good co-operators. The chief difficulty had been to
get them all to join up. There were
whole communities of Japanese and
though they were being legislated
against in respect of the holding of
land, the court had held this to be
Illegal. The Japanese could not become naturalized but when the second
generation became of age they, being
born In the United States, were American citizens.
Mr. W. A. B. Paull, of Little River,
asked some question bearing on the
Comox Creamery and Mr. OHver'B answer was that a retail store should not
be carried on In connection with the
Creamery If the latter had to be responsible for the financing of It. One
branch should not have to carry another.    Mr. Hurford also replied.
Despite the bitter coldness of the
weather the attendance was all that
could be desired. Before the meeting
closed the chairman asked the audience to show their appreciation of Mr.
OHver'B coming by a clap of the hands.
This was done spontaneously and the
meeting broke up.

The Friend O' Man-The Dog
Compiled by a Well-Known Fancier From Observations
Of English Experts
Airedale nnd Welsh Terriers
Somewhat similar dogs these. Taffy
may be classed as tho Alrey one's
brother since he can only get about
twenty pounds to the other's thirty-
live or forty-live. Both have tan markings with nn almost complete covering of dark grizzle or black for preference. The characteristics of these
dogs are similar to those of many of
their brother terriers. A good dog
should possess a flat skull, with a
long straight muzzle, strong jaws,
small ears, chest deep but not wide,
and powerful quarters; his legs
should be plumb straight.
Thc Irish Terrier
He conies of a fighting breed, but j
is a very companionable sort. Self
red or wlicaten are his colors. Slightly
larger than thc Fox Terrier, he
reaches as much as twenty-four
pounds, but his chief points arc
somewhat similar to those of the Fox
Terrier except that his body Is much
more racy and expression has more
"devil" ubout it. He is a good dog
for town or country, but must have
plenty    ot*   exercise   to   satisfy    his
Hibernian spirit.
The SooHlsh Terrier
A stocklly built little fellow who ls,
In the language of the day, "a bit ot
a card." He Is a little inclined to
have Ills own way; all round Is a won-
defiilly affectionate and Interesting
pal. Weight should be about eighteen
pounds, not more; height ten to twelve
Inches. Ills range of colors are grey,
brinillc and black. Ills head should
be long, eyes small and dark, ears
sharp pointed. His coat Is harsh and
very dense; forelegs straight.

ROMANCE!
Dy It. St. Christie
This Is how It happened. They had
met at an A. D. C. Tea Shop where
thoy were both having lunch. She
had left her purse at thc office and he
came to the rescue. Of course, they
met again—tliey always do. On Sunday he took her up the river and
afterwards they hail sat down on thc
bank and talked—talked of themselves
and life.
They had tea at Richmond. And It
was there thnt he suddenly realized
how sweet she looked. How soft and
misty her hair wns and how bewitching her mouth looked when she said
"Oh!" with the soft light of tbe shaded
lamp upon her white throat and neck.
He noticed thnt she had a fascinating
little dimple.
doing home lie kissed her. Not once
but many times. Really she waB thc
most klssnlile girl he had ever met
before In his short life. He couldn't
go to sleep for a long time for thinking of her.
At the office next dny she seemed
happier, and her answer to herself
was "It's the Spring!"
Ho snw her many times after that.
Often lie would hnve queer feelings
inside. Sometimes he couldn't understand them, ns if he must laugh and
shout when he felt the wind blow, and
sometimes he felt ns If the world were
an empty disappointing mockery, or
It may have been Indigestion. He happened to be rather poor, you sec, that
Is In tlie wny riches arc counted In
this world. Anyway they became very
friendly and lie told her all his hopes
and ambitions and what he meant to
do and then of what "they" would do.
Sometimes he fancied she smiled. He
didn't like that and would say so
and then she would kiss hlm. Ile liked
that.
It was on Saturday evening they
wero having supper lu one of those
obscure restaurants that have those

discret little seats in them, where the
orchestra ls never boisterous and the
lights shaded. They did not need food,
but they did need each other's company; aud it was at the coffee stage
♦hen the waiter had discreetly withdrawn that he told her. She had
known all the time what he was going
to say and yet somehow lt surprised
her. He hadn't meant to tell her yet
—because he was only just starting
life and had yet to make his way. But
it was Springtime and the little puffs
of wind that were soft and kindly and
the freshness and the magnetism of It
all had entered Into his soul. He had
to tell her. She smiled. She looked
very fascinating when she smiled, displaying an even row of little white
teeth.
And then she pointed out that lt
wouldn't do. That If they did they
would probably havo to live in quite
a tiny house In perhaps a not very
desirable neighborhood, or even
rooms. Sho would have a new Spring
hat once in three years and he would
have to give up his favorite brand of
cigarette. They would have to decide !
whether they should have a little sup- J
per out or buy a new door mat for
the front door, and after a time it
would always be doormats, and be- j
sides, although she was really very
fond of him, she didn't really—well,
she didn't quite know. He was an
awful dear, but, well, Just but—Bhe
told him. And then he laughed and
she was glad because she thought he
would really have cared.
So after seeing her home they parted — for always — she Bmillng and

"Mikado," nnd he miserable, with thc
eyes that saw nothing.

FATAL ACCIDENT ON
L T. RAILROAD TRACK
Andrew  Ingram Dies as Result  of
Falling In Front of Speeder
at Sharp Curve.
Andrew Dean Ingram, a well known
logger in the Campbell River district,

not Bee the man until It was too late
to prevent the accident. Quickly stopping the speeder both men rusbed
back to where the unfortunate man
lay. Placing him on tbe speeder they
rushed him to the crossing where he
was rushed by car to the hospital. Dr.
Shaw was Immediately summoned and
everything possible was doue tor tbe
Injured man, but to no avail. He
passed away early Saturday morning.
The coroner's Jury brought in a
verdict of unavoidable accident wltb
no blame attached to anyone.
The late Mr. Ingram was ln the employ of the Seymour Logging Company
last year as boom man. He was highly
respected by all residents of Campbell River. His sudden death caused
great sorrow. He leaves to mourn his
loss his mother, now living ln Wisconsin, and two brothers, both of
Washington.
The remains were taken to Sutton's
Undertaking Parlors, Courtenay, pending word from his relatives.
