mong the passengers were Mrs. McMillan, Thus Piercy, Mr. Smith, D. Cowie,
J. B. McLean, Mr. Picket, M. Cowie, H.
Gordon and Miss Gordon.
Thc ss. Stella, capt. Manson, came
down from Read Island with the body of
James Burns, who was drowned while at
work on a boom of logs at Taylor's camp.
It is supposed that he was under the in-
flence of liquor. Burns was one of the
principal witnesses in the case in which
Kennedy is charged with the murder of
O'Conner. Burns will be burried in the
Catholic Cemetery.
Aug. 24,��� The excursion on the ss.
Joan to Seymour Narrows took place today. A number got on at Union wharf
and about 50 at this point. The Union
Mine String Band was in attendance
and furnished excellent music. The
young folks spent a considerable portion
of time ip dancing, thc weather being unfavorable, and the wind too strong to ren
der it agreeable to remain out. The
lunch and dinner aboard was, as usual
first class, The steamer called in at
Quatlnaska Cove, and at Grant's camp
and went up so as to give a fine view of
the Narrows.
Aug. 26.��� The Joan left for Nanaimo
at the usual hour with the following pas-
sengeis: Miss M. Cowie, D. Cowie, H.
Gordon, Miss Gordon, Mrs Butler, Mrs
Mcintosh, Mrs Boyd, Mrs McMillan, T.
H Piercy, Jack Howe, Geo. Howe. H.
Stewart, Smith & Hall, Mrs D. Beadncll
and daughtei, J. Hawkins and wife, Mrs
Graham and George Ford.
There was a pleasant evening spent
Tuesday at the residence of Mr. W. Robb
by his neighbors. What with good music, peaches and cream, the hours flew
quickly and were much enjoyed.
Geo! McDonald and R. Swan have returned fr**m their Gartley Creek trip.
They brought some fine specimens of gold
Later in the fall they will develope their
claims. Considering the mineral wealth
which abounds in this region it is more
than likely that we shall have some mil-
lionarics in our midst in the near future.
Another old land mark is going. The
old barn of Mr. Robb is being pulled
down. It is no longer needed ��15 Mr,
Robb has a little farther down the hill a
very large barn, of modern design, and
admirable arrangement.
Mr. Wm. Brown, who has held a very
responsible position in Mr. J. B. Holmes
store for a considerable time has severed
hi*- connection with that establishment,
and will leave for Baynes Sound where
he will enter the employ of Geo. Howe
Esq. We will miss him very much as he
was always to the front in social matters.
Out best wishes go with him. Mr. H J.
Rickard nf Vancouver has taken the position with Mr. Holmes vacated by Mr.
Brown. He comes well recommended.

A Lively Passage.
As everybody knows, M. R. Gilchrist
and M. McArdle are men of muscle, being leading lights in the Athletic Club.
Their muscles have been compared to
whipcords, and the electrical arrangements between the brain and the muscular system are so perfect that the latter
maybe said to operate with scientific
Well this is all preliminary.
In returning from their late voyage
they passed through Seymour Narrows.
The waters here are a natural gymnasium in themselves, and thev are always
in practice, When our athletes turned
into the passage between the small island in the channel ofthe Narrows and
Valdes Island the waters laughed at
them. The canoe was turned around
like a top, at first slowlv, and then with
increased velocity, until diizv, the boatmen lay down, and clung with desperation to the bottom; and then as if to vary
the sport, a strong current seized the
frail boat and shot it back clear out of
tlie passage and forced it around the
north end of the island into the main
Here they had a chance to breathe.
McArdle was the first to speak. "By
giminenti!" he exclaimed, "this is worse
than being knocked clear around the
ring, and then thrown over the ropes by
Its the first "turf of wai*" in which I've
been vanquished," rejoind Gilchrist.
Then they moved down the main chan
ncl. They went faster than they cared
about going, too. Finally the boat came
rushing near a huge boulder on the Vancouver Island side, when Gilchrist gave
one of those jumps which invariably take
first prize in the sporting field and landed on the rock. He had kept the rope
in his hand and McArdle was soon At
hi** side, and the canoe sucured.
McArdle was the first to speak again.
"I wouldn't try that another time." said
he," for thc best lot in Kaslo."

A ladies gold pin was lost last Friday
between thc lake and the main camp.

There is some sickness here though
the general health is good. Three
cases are reported at the hospital. James
Abrams is on the mend, and so is Billy
Davidson. The many friends of Mrs J.B.
McLean will regret to learn that she is
suffering from a serious illness.
The Union bakery is again in full blast
with C. A. Martin at the oven. This
means the best of bread, for what Martin
don't know about baking isn't worth
knowing. Mr. Wm. Viles, lhe proprietor will attend to the delivery. Mis cart
will be al Courtenay and Comox Tuesdays and Fridays.
The wire between here and Courtenay
has been cut twice lately, thc parlies carrying ofl" in each case a few yards.   It
should be known that interfering with
the line is a very serious offense punishable with imprisonment.
Grant & McGregor have cased in
their furniture saleroom and it now presents a very neat appearance. This enterprising firm will have a fine display at
the Exhibition nt Courtenay next month.
The new pharmacy ot Young & Scharschmidt is enclosed and under roof, und
will be ready for occupancy in about a
week. Dr. Scharschmidt, it is understood, will have his office here in the future.
The plana of the new hotel have been
enlarged, and the building will now be
58 by 48, two stories, with a roof thrown
up and lighted so as to form a handsome
cap, giving the building the height and
appearance of a three storey building.
The frame is up and partly enclosed. It
will have a gable front, the upper part
being ornamented with fancy designs,
with a base of ornamental shingles and
a balconv extending across the front, the
rffect being very pleasing. The first or
principle floor wilt contain a billiard
room, bar, parlor, dining room, kitchen,
card room, store mom, half and pantry.
The second storey besides hall will have
fifteen bedrooms. The proprietors are
Bruce & McDonald.
The Fields Aflame.
It has been quite dry of late, and the
numerous fires about have been a source
of no little anxiety. Monday, Mr. Mason
of Courtenay was kept fighting fire nearly alt day which encompassed his premises on the east, south and west.
Last Thursday the northwest part of
Courtenay townsite was in flames. The
fires approached dangerously near the
dwellings of Chas. Hooper and Mr. Lambert. If they had gone, McKelve\'s
the bakery, and probably the Riverside
would have been lapped up in the flames
But the fire would not have stopped
there, nor until a large portion ofthe village had been laid in a-mes. It was a
narrow escape. The wind blew furiously
and the crackling ofthe flames sounded
like"ahugh monster snapping his teeth.
The News building caught fire from
some flying sparks, which, however, was
soon extinguished.
The buildings of Mr. Salmond had a
narrow escape. Mr. Salmond had gone
over to a part of his ranch beyond sight
of his home, when two boys, just for the
sport, set fire in a slashing a little west of
the house. The wind drove the fire toward the buildings. Mrs. Salmond'saw
and realized the danger and bravely
fought the flames for three hours when
she had an opportunity to send word by
a boy to her husband. Had she become
frightened and left, the buildings would
have soon fallen a prey to the fiery demon. With a pail of water and dipper
she extinguished the fires as thev were
kindled where the sparks rained The
heap of straw and ''midden" near the
barn was on fire at one time, but was put
out by the bucket.
The flames as they spread roared with
sullen anger and leaped up into the tall
trees whose dry limbs swayed ttt the
breeze and snapped and creaked in fiendish glee.
It was a scene to impress fine. Here
were a few acres cleared, on which was .1
dwelling, barn etc. and all around, the
forest. The opening had been enlarged
by slashing the rim ofthe woodland to
the west ofthe clearing, and this slashed
space was a band of fire blown toward
the buildings. Standing in front of these
a woman with a buchet of water quenching the consuming sparks as they fell.
It is pleasant to know that heroism tli-
umplied ovei the elements.
Defence and Counterblast.
Mr. Editor:��� I was surprised at the
remarks made by your Comox correspondent with regard to work done by me
near McPhee & Moore's store. If hs
was a resident of the place at that lime
he would know that it was not contract
work, but under the immediate supervision of Mr. Bentley Gov. Agent; so
that whether the way the bent is placed
or thc reducing of the 14m stringers to
10 inch on the ends be approved or not,
I merely acted under instructions in thc
matter; even to the burying of old timber, so that the worms should not ha**e a
chance of attack upon thc srund timbers
in tlie new bridge. I will merely add
the "bridge" seems pretty solid yet after
some years of use, for the simple reason
it was solidly framed; and nn Dutchman
used to patch it! I have only had two
contracts yet in Comox, one, the bridge
over the Tsolum al Mr. Reese's, the other a bridge over Raymors Creek, both
of which I think would bear inspection.
Now Mr. Editor I think the reference
to me had better bem held back by your
Comox correspondent, as some' of the
work done on the lower prarie road calls
for a greater protest than was made. I
will merely add, I have no personal rea
sons for following anv ofthe parties concerned, nor had I any wish to have a
hand In thc contracts'; but when there
arc places in the road which aw simply
impassible in the wet season, and waler
standing from six inches to a foot on one
side, and rail fences to walk upon on the
olher side, it makes us alt wish heartily
for some means to get along without plod
ding through a foot of slime! Now the
g-avel was called to be six inches deep,
and 9 feet wide upon thi-,but upon measurement it iv-is found to be three and a
half to four inches deep and from seven
to seven and a half feet wide over the
worst part. Another portion farther west
which 1 am unformed calls for the best
gravel to be obtained within reach, was
nearly all covered with red loam, when
there was a fair quality of material within
200 yards ofthe work. The Gov. Agent
afterwards told me, he authorized the
contractors to take this loam. I certainly would like to know by what authorily,
he could change an agreement after it
hnd been tendered upon, when the material was within reach to fill the written
agreement. A party residing here and
a practical road maker, states lie is willing lo.shovel just as good material from
the side of the corduroy for thc sum of
$40 as was hauled from the nearest red
loam beds for $75; and to make the matter still worse, il was given out that all
contracts had to be done right this year
regardless of how the contractors might
fare, and also that all parties tendering
had to find gravel where they could, lhe
department not being responsible for
quality of gravel in vicinity of work to be
done, but thc road had to be covered
with what the specifications called for.

Road Contracts and Thistles.
Editor News: If the individual, termed lhc"Chronic Growler," only had a day
or two to spare to walk through the settlement and examine the various contracts that have been passed byour"com-
petent Road Boss," he would find cause
not only to find fault himself, but would
wonder that others knowing that vegetable matter was being placed on the
road for gravel did not complain too.
The "Chronic Growler" would be justified
in speaking out.
Cannot something be done to cut the
thistles growing on the roadside? They
area disgrace to the whole community)
Would it be asking too much for the
Government A(*cnt to give a man a day's
work to cut them down?
Money Wanted.
There are quite a number of those who
signed as members of the Comox Agricultural and Industrial Exhibition, lasl
spring who have not **et paid their membership fee. Will they not kindly do so
now, without wailing to be called nn?
Those residirg on Hornby Island can
hand the amount lo Mr. George Heath-
erbell, Director, and those living on Denman Island will please pay to Mr. Alex-
McMillan, Director. All others will
probably find it as convenient to hand
thc moncv direct')' to the Secretary. Our
friends will please not delay, as it is essential that the Directors should know
precisely how much they can depend upon.
The names of new members arc being
added to the roll daily by the Secretory.
It is trusted that this movement will He

our watchword be Union and Progress.
Noxious Weeds.
Elsewhere in this paper will be found
a notice from the Government Agent to
the owners of land to cut and destroy
the thistles growing upon their fields or
along thc roadside adjoining. This is
rather late.but better than never.For quite
a distance from the long bridge towards
Courtenay, thistles line the road on both
sides. They not only menace the fine
fields adjoining, but the seeds when they
become ripe will be blown for miles by
thc winds They should have been mow
ed down weeks ago. They are a great
jr-c*>t, easily exterminated, if properly at*
'ended, to, but if neglected they will over-
mn thc entire valley. So important is it
that they should be destroyed that thc
legislature has seen fit to enact a law re*
quiring their destruction, and imposing
heavy penalties for failure to destroy
them. Hut it seems passing strange
,lut farmers will be so disregards! of
their own interests, and of the rights of
others as to neglect this statutory duty.
We are pleased to see that some of them
have attended to this matter; but it is a
case in which every owner of land must
act, or what is done by some will he unavailing.
Enforce the law, Mr. Government
Agent, without fear or favor. Hut as the
sight of a thistle-lined road is calculated
lo injure us in the eyes of strangers, let
such places be first attended to.

R. Graham, Propr.
This town is located in the
midst ofthe largest agricultural
settlement on Vancouver Island. It is within six miles of
Union Mines affording the.farmers of the valley the very
best home market, and is situated on lhe only highway
leading from the settlement to
the mines. The lumber interests of this section are most ex
tensive, and are an important
factor in our progress.
The per cent of improvements of this town during the
present year is greater than
any other place rj;-* Coast
can boast or, ana the march of
improvement is still onward.
The prosperity of the town
has for its foundations, therefore large, mineral, agricultural,
and timber recources. It may
also be added that no section
furnishes a better field for the
sportsman. Fish and game
are always abundant and our
hotels of the best.
