Coal Burner Te*t

E. AND N. RAILWAY TO OPERATE EXPERIMENTAL
ENGINE
The first coal burning locomotive
to run over lines of the Esquimalt
and Nanaimo Railway for several j
years is expected to be operated to-:
day. when an engine experimentally
equipped with the newly devised
Brown-Cyclone spark extinguisher |
will be given tests. The trials are
being made under the auspices of the
coal commission created recently by
tlie Provincial Government, and will
take place chiefly on portions of the
line where heavy grades exist.
J. M. Cameron, manager of the
Esquimalt and Nanaimo Railway,
Wednesday morning stated that tests
had been planned earlier, but adjustments to the special apparatus, to
adequately control the highly incandescent cinders created from high-
grade Island coal, had taken longer
than expected by the experts in j
charge of the installation of the ape- j
cial equipment on the engine. [
"On the Northern Pacific Railway, I
Cyclone spark arresters apparently j
have been very satisfactory, but
those engines burn lignite coal. The
Island coal has fifty per cent greater
heating value. Sparks emitted by
engines have a vastly longer life nnd
much greater heat intensity," Mr.
Cameron said, in explanation of the
necesstiy of redesigning the appnrat-

To Use Island Coal
Victoria, Sept. 17.—The new gasoline tax of from 2c to 2He on distilled and refined fuels announced by
Premier Bennett yesterday, was being examined in relation to its effect on soft coal consumption. Im- j
port.'ition of refined gasoline was one
of the items complained of by B.C, I

Dairymen were frank in stating
that the eggs and butter sections of
the tariff would be of considerable
assistance to the home producer, btit

President E. W. Beatty, of thc
Canadian Pacific Railway, who with
a distinguished party is on u tour
of the West and left Victorin on
Thursday night for a .sail round Vancouver Island.
The president wus non-committal
as lu whether the trip round tho Is
land had any significance.
"Our trip around Vancouver Island is with a view to seeing portions
of the country which we have not
hitherto visited. If, as a result of
this trip, improvements in the service
or additional efforts to increase tourist business to that district seem desirable, the requisite, steps. .will be
taken," he said.
A distinguished group of Canadians are travelling with the Canadian Pacific president. It includes
Sir Aurthur Currie, president of McGill University; Sir Herbert Holt,
president Royal Bunk of Cunndn;
Sir Charles Gordon, president Bank
of Montreal; Beaudry Leman, president Banque Canadienne Rationale;
R. S. McLaughlin, president Genera'
Motors of Canada; W. A. Black, pre
sident Ogilvie Flour Mills; Senator
Smeaton White, of Montreal, and
Dr. C C. Chipman, of McGill University.
The jury impanelled to Inquire into the death of James Dick who was
fatally injured on Saturday last
whilst out deer hunting, brought in
a verdict that in their opinion death
was caused by a gun shot wound at
the hands of Daniel Dowling and that
from the evidence submitted the act
was purely accidental.
The jury was composed of John
Sutherland, foreman, \V. Merrifield.
T. R. S. Grnhnm, W. McLellan, Jr.,
Wilbur Hudson and Dave Lockhart.
Coroner John Conway hud charge
of the proceedings and Sergt. Man-
sell, chief of thc Courtenay division
of the Provincial police conducted
the ease for the crown. Theed Pearse
of Courtenay was present in the interests of Daniel Dowling.
The first witness called was Dr, K.
R. Hicks, who stated that the was
called to the Cumberland Hospital
aboul 1 p.m. on Saturday, September 13th to see James Dick, who had
just been brought in. He found him
suffering from a gun shot wound,
with a small hole on the left side and
a slightly larger hole in the buck. He
treated the injured man but he gradually grew worse and at (JiHO the
game day he pussed away. At a post
mortem which Dr. Hicks conducted
on September 15th he found that de-
ceosetl had been shot between the
ninth and tenth rib and the left kidney shot. In his opinion death was
due to shot from gun, and internal
h 'in ino rage.
James Michael Williamson, who
was hunting with Dick was the next
witness. He stated that in company
with James Dick he went, early on
Saturday -morning, to Bloedel's slashings, back of Union Buy. They stayed ou Wftrroad until nearly daylight
then followed aiong Bloedel's track
for approximately half a mile, then
along a skid road into the slashings.
About 0.80 they met two men, Daniel
Dowling being one of them. After
two or three minutes conversation
they parted, Dick and Williamson
going north, whilst Dowling went
about due west, his partner being
slightly ahead of him. After travelling about 100 yards, stuted Williamson, we heard a shot and stopped to
look and see where the shot came
from. Directly afterwards a second
shot landed in front of them. In
answer to a juryman, Williamson
snid he jumped off the log he was
standing on and got behind two
stumps. "You did that for protection?" queried the juryman. "Ves,"
replied Williamson. In answer to
another question he stated that Dick
remarked the shots were coming
pretty close. Shortly after the second shot a third was fired which
struck Dick. He, Williamson, immediately shouted to stop firing as a
mun had been hit and he also fired
seven or eight shots. Howling cume
over said the witness and immediately culled to his partner to came as
a man had been shot. Jim Robertson who was hunting in the vicinity
also came over. Oowling and his
partner went for help and a doctor.
With the help of Robertson, he took
Dick's shiit off and also their own,
wrapping them around the Injured
man. Another hunter appeared on
thc scene who helped them to pack
the wounded man out, They met the
doctor who examined Dick and proceeded to the track where a speeder was waiting, having been procured by Dowling's partner. He accompanied the injured man on the
.speeder to the roadway where the
ambulance from Cumberland conveyed Ihem to the Hospital at Cumberland. Sergt. Mansell asked the witness to describe the clothing worn by
Dick which was produced. The Sergt.
asked Williamson if he saw a deer,
"Not until after the third shot was
fired", he replied. "How far would
the deer ho from you then?" asked
the Sergt. "About thirty yards," he
answered. In answer to a question
by juryman Merrifield, the witness
said the angle of the second shot was
slightly different from the angle ot
thc first one.
Harold Almquist, who was hunting
with Dowling was the next witness
and corroborated the evidence as
given by Williamson. Constable Donahue, of the Provincial police, who
went to the scene of the shooting
with Dowling and a man named Robertson, the latter a friend of Dick's,
said he found a Winchester 80-30
carbine lying on the ground, which
hnd been used by Dowling. It had
one live cartridge in the barrel and
other  cartridges   in   the   magnzine.

on Sunday
Sixteen members of the Cumberland Lawn bowling club journeyed
to Nanaimo on Sunday morning last
to meet a like number of the members of the Nanaimo club in a series
nf games. Four rinks were played,
euch of the home rinks winning handily. The result was not at all surprising, considering the fastness of
the Nanaimo green, in camparison
with the slow running Cumberland
green. It took the visitors quite a
long time to get accustomed to thu
different condition. The games, however, were very much enjoyed and
whilst the Cumberlanders were belt-
en, Ihe home players on numerous
occasions were only able to get u
shot in at a time. Very rarely was
it a case of "chalking" up four or
more at a time.
Prior to the gume starting, the
home club entertained the visitors
to refreshments and ulso called a halt
half way through the gumes for the
same purpose. During the afternoon
Con. Reifel, a prominent member of
the Nanaimo club presented a cheque
for $10 to the secretary of the Cumberland club to be used in any form
wha'.soever amongst the members,
either as a means of purchasing a
singles' trophy or a doubles. Mr.
Reifel also said he would donate a
cup for competition amongst the
Cuni'icrland players at the start of
the next season, the time of the present season being so close to a finish he thought next season would be
an opportune time to play for the
Reifel  eup.
Ikl'ore leaving for Cumberland,
ibe president of the Nanaimo club
in a few brief remarks said he had
enjoyed the visit of the Cumberland
Uan: very much. He sincerely
hoped and he waa expressing the
opinion of the Nanaimo members,
.bat the Cumberland players had en-
joyed the trip down and the games
•m the local green. He did not for
me moment think that the visitor*
would beat Nanaimo, just yet, it was

WITH a regularity which one would suppose would
penetrate. British businessmen tour this country
and go back home to warn British exporters that
tbey must change their methods if they hope to increase
their sales In Canada. The latest to talk plainly to his
follow manufacturers is Mr. Percy Linden, thc head of
an old-established London iirm. who gives n few practical hints after n personal study of Canadian conditions
—and a successful trip.
l-'ir.-t of all, Mr. Linden says the British exporter must
learn to talk the language of the Canadian businessman,
and stop quoting In t* s. d. when his prospect is thinking
in terms of dollars and cents. He then mentions th"
common mistakes of British salesmen in Canada quoting their goods f.o.b. London, "crating, carriage and
duly extra," expecting tin buyer to work out these costs
himself. "The Canadian refuses point blank to do so,"
says Mr, Linden, 'a'nd frankly, I don't blame him." It'**
port of our job as salesmen to do this for him, and to
tell him what our goods will cost laid down in the Canadian city concerned.'"    Further observations follow:
"It should be our policy to send to Canada only our
responsible officials, the heads of firms, If possible. The
Canadian business man likes to feel he is talking to n
principle, one who does nol hnve to "go for the book",
.md who can toll him immediately whether or not alterations 'n his goods to meet Canadian requirements impossible, and at what price, lie resents his time being
wasted by representatives who have lo refer nil knotty
problems to headquarters.
"It Is much easier to reach the 'key" man in Canada
than is the case in this country. You are not forced tn
run the gauntlet of clerks and office boys which is such
.ii irritating feature of commercial life here. If you
want to see the President, you will see thc President, or
his responsible' deputy, without any fuss or bother, und
he will tell you at once whether or not your goods suit
him, and if not why not."
Mr. Linden concludes by saying lie landed in Montreal
"without knowing 0 soul." He wus taken .in band by
inudstrialists and given as many introductions as he
could possibly use in the tmie at his disposal. He was
"treated like a brother; that's the way lhey have in

A GOOD START
Thirty-two teeth muke the biting
reasons for giving them attention,
and grinding machine which sets the
food we take into our mouth on its
way to digestion. A good start is not
everything* but a good start is desirable and helpful.
Thirty-two teeth ure at least (14
because lack of attention leads to
poor teeth, which in turn means that
the first step in digestion is interfered with and the food does not get off
to a good start.
The crown of the tooth is composed of enamel, the hardest substance
in the hody. Teeth do not wear out
from use. Chewing keeps the gums
and teeth healthy. Food that is well
chewed is thus properly prepared for
digestion. The thorough chewing of
food is food for digestion and good
for the teeth.
If the teeth become decayed, pain
results, and chewing is avoided, sn
food is not prepared properly for di
gestion. Cavities should be promptly
lilted as early tilling saves the teeth.
We should not wait until the teeth
become painful or until we can sec
or feel a cavity, because this means
a considerable amount of damage
has already been done. Regular visits to the dentist will mean the discovery of the beginning of cavities.
That is the time to treat them so as
to prevent uny extereme decay.
To huve healthy teeth, attention
must be given to the diet. Milk and
green vegetables, because of their
mineral content) are valuable in providing for the building of good teeth
Chew your food thoroughly and so
exercise the jaws and stimulate the
gums ,the health of which is part
and parcel of the health of the
mouth.
Brush the teeth regularly, upon
rking, after each meal and, most important of all, the last thing at night
It is better to brush the teeth after
breakfast than before if you nre only
going to do it once. Never neglect
the cleaning before going to bed.
Brush so that the bristles are
pulted between the teeth away from
the gums, After brushing rinse the
mouth thoroughly. If dental floss is
used great care must be taken not

to cut the gums or harni rather than

Teeth have much to do with general health. The collection of pus in
the roots may be a centre for poisoning the whole body. Visit the
dentist regularly to prevent decay
and also to keep the gums and teeth
healthy so that the body will not be
harmed.
A clean mouth is good health insurance.
WORLD WIDE FIRM
CHANGES NAME
Announcement has just been made
of a change of name by the Nestle's
Food Company of Canada Limited.
This world famous eompuny will he
known in future as Nestle's Milk
Products (Canada) IJmited.
The wide interests of thin company
and the varied nature of their pro-
duets have been taken into consideration in this ehnnge of name. It was
felt by those in authority thut the
new name of Nestle's Milk Products
(Canada) Limited conveyed more to
the general public than the old,
Whon its various products such as
Nestle's Condensed Milk, Evaporated Milk. Cheese, Baby Pood, Chocolate and Lactogen are considered, the
advisability of this change of name
is apparent.
Despite depression affecting many
lines of business und industry, the
Nestle's Company are enjoying sound
progress. With their products selling in every country on earth and
with their reputation for quality
firmly established everywhere, this
Canadian company have consolidated
and progressed until their 1930
showing is comparable in volume to
other record years.
The company is careful to state
that the change is one of name only
and that policy, direction and production methods will remain ns formerly.

PRACTICAL NCRSING
Case*   of  All   Kindt
Phone  92L Comoi
The vivid struggles—or rather, the
struggles with a big salmon so vividly described on this page recentlj
by Gwen Cash—move me, not to
emulation, near reminiscence. Mrs.
Cash's initiation, near Brentwood, on
Vancouver Island, to the mysteries,
of Salmon-fishing with the rod will,
it is true, make my own recent experiences at Campbell River seem
trifling. At the same time fellow-
feeling compels me to reVord my own
impressions.
Admittedly, there is no more famous Tyee (or big) salmon-fishing
ground in the world than in the sea
at the mouth of Campbell River,
Vancouver Island, about 100 miles
from Vancouver. There the Tyee Is
at his biggest and best. You ean not
doubt this us you sit in the comfortable rotunda of the Willows Hotel
there and regard innumerable framed photographs of these monster;;
(accompanied by their proud visitors
who hail from all parts of the world
and sometimes bear famous names)
and note their great weights. The
week before we arrived there, Dr.
Weyhurn of California had van
quished a US-pounder and thus, for
the second time, established a record
for the Campbell River Tyee Club.
Everything, therefore, promised
well for the success of my friend and
myself. Nevertheless we decided to
take one or two preliminary canters
fishing for trout above Forbes Land
ing and the glorious Lower Campbell
Lake, and there one afternoon we
accounted for 24 cut-throat and rainbow trout and, next day, another
seventeen, a success which transported me in memory to even bigger
and more sporting fish which I had
captured muny years before in Buttles Lake, twenty miles further in
land.
It was necessary, we discovered,
if we would catch the wily Tyee at
his most unguarded moment that we
rise at the ridiculously early hour of
3..'10 a.m. and take the water—or
the boat—at 4 a.m. A series of sharp
taps upon a dozen bedroom doors
a hurried dressing and cup of coffee
a two-mile motor run to the spit,
where electric lights dispelled some
of the darkness and where the beach
and its environment was.tull of shadowy moving forms, to the accompaniment of sharp culls and tht
sound of oars being adjusted to rowlocks. A few minutes later, em.li
boat rowed by a sturdy guide (fish-
el man I, and twenty or thirty craft,
each containing two anglers, were
patrolling the waters this side of
Seymour Narrows, As! the dawn
broke in cold, grey light at first—
and it developed slowly and magnificently back of the mainland mountain:;—these boats and anglers too!-:
form, nnd for three or four hours
the trolling continued. Now and
again anglers would exchange laconic comments with each other over
the dividing waters. Sometimes these
comments would be humorous, but
in the main, this was a serious business, for who knew but that he might
hook "the record' 'any moment.
Some of the more particular angler-
sat swathed  In   rugs,  and  some  of
them were women. Occasionally une
would see a rod bent almost double
and then—far away in the rear of
that particular boat—a silvery shape
would spring from the waters and
fall back with a splash, pleasing indication of a prospective capture.
Once—no, twice—during mornings and evenings that followed my
companion hooked a fine spring.
These fish are nearly always great
fighters and I was convinced—a>
was our "guide"—that he bad hooked
"sou;, thing big." Hut. after a gallant struggle, the salmon, when gaf
fed, proved to be only 10 or 12
pounds (with the natural pride of a
tyro my friend photographed them
both when ashore).
Let me see—we fished four mornings und one evening and my friend
was responsible for these twain and
I got one "strike." 1 make this brief
and bold statement because it is—i'i
all probability—the lirst truthful
fisherman's story which has appeared
in print this summer.
However ,iu fairness to this niecea
of the Tyee, it should he stated that,
by Common consent, the present season has been singularly poor in the
harvest of this big tish near Campbell
River. Last season, 1 was told, It
wis no uncommon sight to see eight
or ten "big 'tins" lying upon the
beach on the spit after the morning's fishing. Even as it was we
saw a 40-pounder, a 38-pounder and
a 89%-pounder taken one evening.
And. after nil, even a 10 or 12-poun-l
spring, like ours, is not to be sneezed
at.
And, anyway, the experience of
fishing for Tyee at Campbell River
is one not to be easily forgotten.
What, between the keen appetite you
have generated and the stimulating
sight of the colossal stuffed Tyee in
the glass case which greets you on
your return as you enter the breakfast room at the willows, you feel,
catch or no catch, that you are the
real thing—an angler. Noel Robinson in Ihe Vancouver Daily Province.
