Hunter and Scharschmidt Address
the People.
Memo, nf proceedings. Public meeting
cnlled by Mr. Hunter and held in Old
School hnuse, Union, June 29th. About
100 present. Mr. Abrams, channan; A.
Liiuisav, Sec'y; Mr, Scharschmidt invited to a sent on the platform.
Mr. Hunter, first speaker, nave snme
reminiscences uf his tirst visit to Union,
before there was any camp here, expressed gratification lhat from so small a beginning such a prosperous enmp is thc
result, touched on social and other questions, nnn- agitating nearly every country
in the world, arguing from these lhat
great changes were about to take ii'ace,
and saying that British Columbia should
therefore be prepared. Events had vindicated tae course ofthe Davie government generally, but more particularly
its financial and railway policy. He
explained the latter as fully as time wculd
allow; had been in favor of a railroad
and would support any scheme if on a
proper, safe and honorable bask
He 10,idled on the land policy nf the
Government which its opponents claim
ed were in the interest of monopolies and
capitalists, showed that the laws were
liberal in every respect, aud stated that
the land laws of the E. N. K. K. were
identical with those of the Dominion.
He spoke on the revenue and expenditure in Comox District, said he would en
dcavor to do his best for the District ifjclcc
ted and asked for support of electorate, if
s -tisfied he was the best man for them.
Mr. Scharschmidt was called, asked if
any one else wished to speak as he
would prefer to follow them. No one
wishing to speak, Mr. Scharschmidt addressed the meeting. He stated that he
was a supporter ofthe Hon. Theo. Davie
but was nnt a supporter of thc government in all its policy.
. He read his platform which he stated
was partly adopted from that ef the Nanaimo Reform Club, and which, if elected he would endeavor tn have carried
nut. He criticised Mr. Hunter votes in
ihc House, endeavoring tn show thereby
lhat Mr. Hunter was a blind servant of
the Dunsmuirs. Then he explained his
temperance platfonn(sic) and the course
he Would lake in regard to the ignorant
workers ia mines, touched nn local matters; would demand appointment of Coroner aud Stipendiary Magistrate, too
mails a week, extension of main trunk
raid up from French Creek; the making
of good road to Hoy's ranch for the pleasure of Union residents, etc.
Mr. Hunter replied defending his votes
in the Mouse; scored Scharschmidt unmercifully fur his assurance in saying his
voles were influenced by the Dunsmuirs,
while Mr. Sclmr.-chmidt was nothing but
the tool of Kitlict and Irving, now in the
eld as candidates for Victoria City and
Cassiar District and who were behind
the Canada Western or British Pacific
Scheme, and asked if that be the case,
lhe electors of Comox could expect an independent candidate in Mr. Scharschmidt. The meeting closed wilh a vote
of thanks to thc chairman.

it saw Col. Crockett didn't wait to be

I had made any such demand of Mr.
Bruin, without spc iking through a rifle,
he would have put his fore claw to

Last Saturday night some person or
persons, not having the (Mt of the law
before their eyes broke into Mr. Lciser's
meat shop,and carried off what little loose
chanje there was in the till. It was not
much, as of course not much is ever left
over night. They tried the window on
the west side, cutting through the netting, but the window obstinately refused
to rise. Then they came around to the
front door, cut the wire gauze and sue
ceeded in gelling in through the aperture
They evidently were excited by some
noise for they seized a hammer which
was conveniently near, with a blow broke
the lock and a portion nf the knob and
departed through the back dtior.lt may nnt

First Political Meeting.
Scharsraldt No Longer   Poiea  as
Natural Bol*.
An   Object   of   Sympathy.   But
Appears in  HU  Natural
What Occured.
The meeting called by Mr. Scharch-
midt laat Thursday evening ��� at the
school house in Courtenay, and to which
Mr. Hunter was invited was thc tirst in
the political campaign here, and was well
attended. Mr. McPhee was voted to thc
chair, and Mr. Scharschmidt announced
as the first speaker. That gentleman
came forward with a lot of statutes, sessional acts Ste. which he laid conspicuously upon the table, pulled out a lung
manuscript from an inside pocket, coughed, wiped his his forehead and exclaimed
���The Weekly News. Everybody gave
an anticipatory laugh. There was to ue
some spite and ihey settled themselves
back in their seats and awaited the fun.
Tbe speaker was in dead earnest and ev*
idently thought the Ni;ws could be demolished by the jawbone of , and
proceeded aaord-ngly to pour forth his
wrath. He really made no attempt to defend himself or to prove that the position
this paper had taken was wrong, with the
single exception thut he claimed he borrowed the money to cover his deposit
as a candidate and gave security for it.
We give him the benefit of his statement
and people will believe him or not ns
they choose. It is not a matter of much
consequence. Abuse of the News and
its editor, he appeared to think, would
make up fur his own dclinquences. A-
mong oiher things he declared ihc paper
had either been bought or ���. Here follow a low word which gentlemen do not
make use of. He then charged that the
editor had been guiliy of the enormous
crime of conducting a journal for the pur
pose of booming a town on the Fraser,
and then had come here! Next he ascended to a lofty moral altitude in which
he looked strangely outof place���andshak-
ing a recent copy of the News before
the audience, declared there was a passage in it unfit to be read in any family.
He referred to the statement that the
Canada Western was paved with more
lies than hell itself. This had been said
with reference lo the falsehoods whioh
had been circulated about it in this community for political and speculative purposes. Hut it was thc world ^hcll" he nb
jectcd to. He seemed to have a holy
borrow of it. If he had ever atteneded
church he would have discovered that
ministers of thc Gospel did not hesitate
to use the word before the audiences
gathered to hear them. But Mr. Scharschmidt when it comes to religion or temperance is to say the least an extraordinary person. He will permit us, however, wc, trust, to call his attention to
what an English theologian��� Geo, Herbert-says in his "Jacula Prudentum,"
page II, edition of i6fo; and also to thc
following passage which may be found in
a Book which but few people object to
having in their homes: "The way of sinners is made plain with stones, but at the
end thereof is the pit of hell." Eccle-aas-
ticus, XXI, 10.
At last he got through with the picturesque and personal part and proceeded
with his speech closely following his paper. He was in favor of the Canada
Western, and Mr. Hunter, he assured
his hearers was not He produced a letter from Mr. Kithet directed 10 "Dear
Casey" which contained a little hearsay
which had come to Kithet's ears, but was
wholly unimportant, and this was all his
The long bridge should be done by
days work, he argued. The liquor law
should be more ndigty enforced. He
said some fun had been made about his
taking this position on the liquor question. He admitted he drank whisky, and
intimated he could carry off a good deal,
but he never allowed it to get the best nf
him(?) He touched on the revenue of
the district, which he claims was larger
than the appropriations fur roads and
bridges and so he went on through the
programme which he hns printed, and
other matters until he came to the end of
his roll.
Thc next speaker was Mr. J. 11. Holmes. He was over excited and ought to
bave been at home, rather than at a political meeting. He spoke rapidly and at
the top of his voice, lie wanted the road
frum Nanaimo continued, which the
journal has always advocated, also a yov-
cinmcni wharf at Baync Sound, and better mail accommodations. What ihe
Provincial legislature had to do with this
mail he didn't explain. Next he pitched
into thc Nkws and extolled Mi. Schar-
schmidt���as the peer ofany man in the
district. Mr. Holmes is in thc habit of
running up little flags of distress but wc
never lutlce them and only refer lo them
now to say lhat we sympathise with him
in his affliction, and (rust he may have a
speedy recovery.
Mr. Hunter replied. He had his liltle
joke on the paper ami denied any respun
sibiliiy for its utterances.
Then lie took up ihc Canada Western
and refuted thc stories which had been
circulated about his position saying he
had never voted against a railway charter; that he should not oppose an extension pf time to the Canada Western ami
whenever it got itself in shape so as to
present to the government such a scheme
as Mr. Kithet hoped, as explained in his
speech, it would receive his support.
'I his statement took the wind pretty com
plctely outof the sails of* Mr. Scharschmidt. And when he enquired, why they
didn't propose to start right here in Co
mux instead of at Duluth there was much
merriment. He referred to the Sidney
road which had been advetted to. and
said it was only proposed SO connect the
mainland with steamers -.0 as to bring in
from the Lower Fraser valley products,
and ridiculed tlie idea that they could
be biting hi across the Gulf, transported
to E. & N, station ind brought up here
into this farming settlement of Comox.
He touched on thr question of appropriations for ibis district and showed that
the proceeds dcriyed from the land sales
were not made the basis, but rather lhe
revenue derived from taxes, by which appropriations foi roads ami bridges were
made. Up gave the figures and said he
thought the district had been pretty well
done by. He showed that three of the
planks nf Mr. Scharsshmidt were taken
bodily from the Kefnrm Club's platform at
Nanaimo, which is hostile to the Government, while Mr. Scharschmidt was stand
ing professedly as a Government supporter; while another plank had been the
rule for 16 years. With reference to the
Government paying the salaries of teachers, he thought the cities should as now
pay a part, especially as the poll tax revenue was turned over to ihem, and 'Mid
that country municipalities did not pay
ihe teachers as Mr. scharschmidt appeared tn think.
He touched on Scharschmidt's claim
that the district should be given more
voice in thc matter of roads, and the selection of .1 government agcnl, and saiit
he supposed there would be no obje< t-
1011 to trying it, yet he thought in as
targe a district as this that the present
plan was as good as any. as it prevented
wrangling from conflicting interest whti h
might otherwise arise. He also touched
on lhe Long Bridge. He said there wan
no danger of its being let to outsiders as
tenders would only be called for here,
and that he would see if he had any
voire in it, that no outsiders get it. lie
did not however appear to f.ivor dayn
work tor such a job. He touched on var
ions other matters, but our space does
not enable us to give a more extcndc-l*
Thc meeting was most orderly with
the exception of a few iplerruptiors.

Milk ?
Scientific men generally, men who have
studied carefully the feeding of -mule and
wh�� have accurately analysed the producti
aro ��f lho opinion that, feed haa very little
-to do with the quality of milk though the
quantity given may vary oonsldorably.
Thii statement we believe to he correct
but we believe that it ought to be explain-
ed, and It appears to us that an excellent
explanation ean be found by using the hone
an au illustration.
A farmer finding himself In the possession
of k speedy eolt feeds the colt to the bee**
of hia ability, trshlS It carefully ami breed*
ing from it seeurei another fast colt which
in turn Is well foil and carefully trained.
This boing oontlnued through a number of
generations we finally have reconi breakers
which I ring the figures down to 3, In, then
to 2.09, to 3.08 and so on.
What hai* produced this hii*b speod t
Tlie answer in nelf eviileut.    It waa Midi-
lug ami breeding.   Oati have played an Important part in the production of this ip I.
Cut thll iruth most  not  he run  iuto  the
ground. Became one horse after eating six
quarts of oata can show a 2.08 gait, It tinea
nut follow that if the home   had been fed
eight quarts of oats it wonld nhow a 2,07
gait. Neither does it follow that because a
high broil horse oan shown 2.08 gait after
eating six (parts of oats iliat. tho same
an. milt fed to a Inu'k burse would produce
the same speed.
Now applying this to cows. A cow producing very rich milk is capable of that
production because she is the result of many
generations of careful feeding and breeding.
Whan we look at lhe care cf cattle through
aeveral generations, feed unquestionably
has a great deal to do with the quality of
I-ni .n tho i|iiest inn in usually asked anil
discussed at farmers' meetings the idea of
immedlttle returns in prominent, uml thia ia
the condition of thinga regarding which Llie
scientific men take their positive statements,
It ihc cow fed 10 quarts of grain tod-ay ia
producing four percent, milk, ahe will not
produce four anil a half per cent, milk tomorrow by adding two quarts of i*rnin to
her ration. Quality of milk is almost entirely a matter of the Individuality and
breeding of the oow and haa very little to
do with tbe feed that is given her from day
to day provided she baa enough, A person
owning a poor cow would not lie able m the
course of an ordinary lifetime to .succeed
in making her give rich milk by changing
hor feed In amount or quality, It would
be Impossible to feed a Holstein to us to
produce Jersey milk. Hence when narrow
spaces of time are considered it is true that
lead haa vory ilttlo to do with the quality
of the product.

A bra-ad.
The exports from Canada to the West
Indies amounted to $3,145,708 last year.
This has been, since 1873, the steadiest
branch of our foreign trade, having averaged
about $3,000,000 per year during that per*
ind. The islands are easily reached, and
rank third in our list of customers abroad,
yet nn one eon read tbe report of the Department of Trade and Commerce, just
issued, without seeing that there ia room
for considerable expansion of business in
that direction. The difficulty seems to be
that shippers persistently disregard the
local prejudicea againat certain forms ot
packages. For example, all the commercial
agents report a steady demand for butter,
yet shippers %end firkins of from 40 to (H)
pounds in weight, inatead of tins running
from 5 to 10 pounds. At. least $1,000,000
worth of butter might he sent annually to
the Weat Indies if this special demand nf
ihe trade were recognized. The same is
true of cheeso and lluiir. With respect to
tbe latter article, il -teems that tho ordinary
barrels are not amiable, anil, while Canadian brands are handicapped in the competition with American shipments in many
of the islands, the demand in Domerara
has gono steadily upward since a change
was made in the form of package. Canada
aeums pre-eminently adapted tor the exportation of Hour, fine dairy products, a-d
bacon and hams. The reports of the commercial agents clearly ahow that the West
Indies ean take very largely of tliese ur-
i idea if a strict regard is had lor the mere
form of marketing. It is ou such such
points that the report ot the Department
of Trade ami Commerce throws light, and
pet*f:irma a useful and much needed aervi-.-e
to Canadian exporters. At the aame time
it presents a great mass of other information respecting the markets of the world,
which ahould be acceptable at a time when
commercial Hues are being extended in
every direction that promises a fair return.
The Strike Justified.
There aeema to lie a condition of decided
injustice at thc bottom of the great atrike
of bituminous coal miners which haa spread
through nearly all of the coal mining
Statea, Prof. K. W. Remia, who haa made
a thorough investigation of the subject,
aaya that if any strike was ever justified,
thia one is. According to estimates whioh
he has made, based on the cenaus of 1SSI0,
wagea in moat Statea averaged about $2 a
day when the miners had work ; but this
was usually for not more than 200 days in
a year. High charges in company stores
often further diminished these meager
wages. Since these figures were made, aaya
Prof. Remis, wagea have been reduced one*
third at least on each ton of coal in Ohio
and weatern Pennsylvania, and the number
of days of work per week haa been reduced
one-half. The trouble began with the
shutting down of iron works near Pittsburg owing to the financial depression,
when many of the Pennaylvania operators
deliberately broke their contract with
the miners' union, and made a deep
cut in wages in hope of securing a monopoly of the coal market. Mr, John Mi-Bride,
President ofthe Miners' Union, then voluntarily released from their contact those
who were standing by the agreement,
aaying that it waa unjust that they ahould
suffer on account of the action of the more
uncrupulous companies, Those who firat
reduced wagea then made a deeper cut, aud
so it has gone on until tbe price paid per
ton has gone down from 70 to fit) and even
l;l cents. This reduction in wages does not
aeem to have beem demanded by the condition of induatry, as the coat of fuel makea
only aamall percentage of the cost of manufactured articles. It was done, as it appears, to gain an unjust advantage over
competing companies, at the expense of the
miners. Kvery effort ahould of course have
lieen made for arbitration before a strike waa
ordered, but it should be remembered that
this trouble haa boen caused by the viola
tion by the operators of an agreement reaohed in a previous arbitration.

From tbo Newcastle, N*. B. I'n.nn Advocate
Quite recently there came to the knowledge of the proprietor ot the Union Advocate, two cases of residents of Newcastle
having been greatly benofited hy the use
nf Dr. Williams' Pink Pills, and ihese were
thought in be of Buft'icient interest to warrant their being published in the Interests
of humanity, if the parlieo interested had
no objection to the facts beiug published.
Consequently a reporter ot this paper
called upou the parties anil obtained from
them cheerfully all tho particulars, Mr.
and Mrs, Hammill removed from Fort Full-
field, Maine, to Newcastle, N. B., about
fourteen months ago. For two years previous Mrs. Hammill had In en in avery
pour Btate of health and was steadily growing weaker and running down until she
waa unable to do thu necessary work
about the house, ami the liltlo she did
used her up completely. Pains iu the
back and limbs, weakness, di/zincus and
other disagreeable aymptoms troubled her.
For some timo she was under treatment nf
several doctors at Fort Fairtiehl, and alsu
sinco she moved here. Itut they effected
no improvement to her run down system
slid she was gradually growing worxe ami
had given up all hopo of regaining her
health. Having read accounts of lhe curea
effected hy the uae of Dr. Williams'I'ink
I'ills she divided last duly to iry lheir an-.l
see if Bhe oould he benefited thereby. She
purchased some from Mr. II. II. .lohnatnne,
druggist, and commenced to lake thom nnd
has since continued to take them with, to
her, wonderful results. She had taken but
a few botes when a gradual improvement
aeemed to be taking place. The pains in
her back and limbs lett her aa did the other
unpleasant symptoms, and at the present
time she is as well aa ever she waa ami with
out feeling the tiredness and exhaustion of
her former atate.
At ber recommendation ber husband also
began the uao of Pink I'ills. About a year
before coming to Newcastle he had suffered
from an attack of typhoid fever, from the
cde-its of which he did not recover hi-i
former health, Hia blood seemed to be thin
and watery, and he was weak and easily
worn out. Through all this he kept steadily
at work, although he says that wheu night
came he waa thoroughly wearied mid de*
(ireased, not knowing how to obtain relief.
Vhon his wife began to feel the lH-netici.il
effects of Pink Pills she urged him to try
them and he did so. After taking three
boxes he began to fcol a wonderful change.
The tired feeling left him and ho had a
better appetite and enjoyed hia food with a
relish he had not had before, He continued
taking tho Pills for some time and ia today fully restored to hia old-time health
and strength. Mr, Hammill was very willing to tolled the benefits both he and his
Wife had derived from the uso of Dr. Williama' Pink I'ills, with the hope tint their
experience might lead others to tost the
benefits to be derived from this wonderful

Alone at Brighton. Nevertheless, I found
the place insulferably dull. 1 believe its
only merit to bo easy access from London.
An immense am- nnt of nonsense i.i talked
about the air ; but I have never been able
to see that the air oi Brighton is in any way
better than any otliur, or that the Brighton
downs are a bit better than any other
Amer ii'huh, in momenta nf ill-ad vised
confidence, will tell you that Saratoga
itsell is an over-estimated place, and that,
if you aro rash enough to try it, ynu will
Und it very tiresome and stupid, ami,to use
their own expression, wiiIt no mere pointH
about it t.iau any othor place.
Brighton, so far as I have troubled iny"
self to cii(|tiire into its history, owes its
success to the people who have visited it.
The Thrales, if I remember rightly,
actually pi-rsuadsd l)r. Johnson to
go down tl cro ; and Ur, John-
son's t-pinion of Brighton was by no means
a pleasant or a Haltering one. Then the
I'rince Reguul went there and built himself
the Pavilion -, and alter this we Hnd Brighton gradually becoming more and more a
London suburb. Dr. Blinker has his select
academy there for young gentlemen. Big
holds grew up ; and, dually, the Brighton
of to-day is no moro the pleasant little
watering.plaoe it once was, than is West
Kensington, with it immense avenues of
atuyo palucca, the dear old Kensington
which Thackeray bo loved.
For my own part I found Brighton and
everything belonging to it, ao intolerable
that, one evening, in a fit of worse than
usual despair, I wrote to Mrs. Fortesoue
and suggested that a change of air might
possibly do her good.
She had been most careful not to loose
sight of me since we parted at Cowes -and
had, in faot, about twice a weak reminded
me of her existence, and of her extreme
and, indued, almost sisterly abaction fnr
Consequently I happened to know that
she was at thia moment quartered on some
friends in the neighborhood of Sandringham.
She bud sent mo mon! glowing accounts of
Sandringham itaelf, and of the exalted personages there, and of the great fun sho was
So I wrote, pleasantly I hope, but not at
all enthusiastically, suggesting thai, a few
weeks at Brighton might recruit her, and
spout quietly with myself, prove a pleasant
contrast to tiie vortex of gaiety iu which
sho bad lately been plunged.
1 received my answer with a promptitude
as appalling an that with whioh our tradesmen down at Ojsulston used to respond to
my father's airy suggestion that they should
tend in thejr accounts.
Mrs. t-ortescue waa absolutely weariett
of Norfolk. She had never been more bored in her life. It had heen well enough
for tho first few days ; but she had a ion
found out that the men talked about nothing except the crops ami the partridges ;
and the women about nothing whatever
except the toilette. Their ideas on thin
subject, sin- mlded, were as primitive as
their clothes which latter must unquestionably have aomo out of the Ark.

wearing the mitre. 1 am getting tired of

that there was a g-ey hair hero aud there
amongst it, Uf course, I bave bail rather
more than my fair share of trouble. But
even so, dear, one does not like to get old
bofore one's time,"
A postscript added that she would not J
of course bring her maid, as doubtless my
treasure, Jackson, wculil bo able to attend
to her few simple wants.
The widow was as good as her word, and
made her appearance with military promptitude. One Ily conveyed hersolf, ami
another her trunks, eaoh as long as cutties
and twice as roomy. And she was more
than over radiant with delight aud enthusiasm.
The sea made her feel at least ten years
younger. So, at any rate, she declared.
She w.is astonished to Hnd Brighton so
littio altered. Did Mutton's still exist?
Did we sti 1 go for morning rides on the
downs T And was that charming physician
still practising in Royalty Square . Antl
so she rattled on, with a string of disconnected quest ions, never once waiting for un
1 judged it upon the whole to be the
safest policy, so far as iny own nerves
were concerned, to let her run herself down. Ultimately, whon she hail
asked all her questions, and told mu
all her nows, ami suggested that after
a long journey a cup uf lei with cognac in
it bad boon pnulivoly ordered her by Sir
Humphrey ���lorkins, she retired to dress for
dinner, leaving me to rotluct ou what 1 had
let myself in for.
1 began almost to ropaut of my un filial
conduct towards the Dean, and to wish that
1 had him down with me, and unuld so
play of)' my Iwo visitors one againat the
At dinner I need hardly say Mrs. Forteseue, knowing or guessing that there was
champagne in the house, declared that she
positively required a glass tn steady her
nerves aflcr the terrible vibration nf the
express - so a bottle was produced ami two
glaises were ill led. She finished the remainder herself, and I can honestly declare
that it innde her more loquacious, communicative, and critical than over.
She put me up to a wrinkle, ns she termed it, which was nothing more than the
fact that brandy antl water is really necessary to "settle' champagne. "Rise, dear
Miriam," she added, "tlio champagne, pleasant and exhilarating as it is, will most
infallibly settle you, aud leave you with a
terrihle headache the next morning."
So she had her brandy and water. The
Dean, to do him justice, used lo call things
that he liked to eat and drink by their proper names. 1 a l-i oat began* to wonder,
whathet^ahe would not tell mo that her
medical mau had recommended her a cigar.
She stopped ahorti however, at this particular trial of my pationco, and contented ;
herself with two or three diminutive Egypt-'
tan cigarettes i and after several -ti.tempis
to keep lioraoif awake; declared that the
journey and tho ohaiigo of air had thoroughly exhausted her, mil that sho should not
be herself again until she had had a thorough
night's rest.
It was a somewhat dreary outlook with
the certain prospect of a fortnight at loast.
So I resigned myself to the Inevitable, and,
as I lilcw out my cmidle, could not help
wishing [ were the man on the Kddystf-ue
Lighthouse, or St. Simeon on his column,
or even Teufeladrockh in his garret, Any
of these places wculil have, at all events,
the one advantage of affording a sanctuary
from Mrs. Forteseue.
A day or two after my guest's arrival, we
were walking, or, rather, sauntering in the
morning along the King's Road crowded as
usual with its indescribable mixture of
Brighton residents and Brighton visitors,
Hys, Bath chairs, goat chaises, boarding
schools in double file, dews as obtrusive as
their own no cs, and here and there an
Indian Ayah with her baby, when it pleased
Mrs. Forteseue to become suddenly, unaccountably, and violently agitated,
"My dear," she exclaimed, "there ho ia I
I declare, there ho is ! What on earth are
we to tlo?''
"There is who?" I asked some what snap.
Look, he
hy, Mr. Sabine, my love,
bas aeen us, and is coming up."
Mr, Sabine it proved to be, looking completely himself. Ho had lieen knocking
about, he explained apologetically, us if he
bad no business to be in Brighton at ull,
He had been to all kinds ot places, to Dean-
villo, to Hamburg, to Baden, and Carlsbad,,
and they had nil alike tired him out. They
were dull and tedium. He had now eome
to Brighton to get out of the way, and (���
sea wliat entire rest ami the air of the
Sussex coast would do for him.
Hu bud brought nobody with him, and
had not expected to meet anybody, least ot
all myself, whom he had supposed to he anywhere rather than in this terrible London-
sur-Mer, where the Londoners lind succeeded in spoiling everything except the glorious
Channel breezes.
Hitherto, his forecast had proved correct,
lie had found himself cu entirely aloue as if
he were at Margate, or Blackpool, or Weston-super-Mare He was stopping at the
*���* Old Ship/' where there was not a person
whom he knew, and be was dividing his
time pretty impartially between tho tenuis
court, tho Parade, and the downs. It was
quite a relief to meet a faeo ho knew. Where
were we stopping ? Might he vary the
monotony of his own existence by looking
in to afternoon tea!
So he went nn until he bad] fairly launched Mrs. Forteseue ou the full Hood of her
small talk. When ahe showed signs of stopping, be caught the ball, and threw It back
to her. Ana thus, beforo I could tell bow
it hid all happened or came about, we
found ourselves back again In front of my
house in Montpelier Road.
I was about to say that I was obliged to
ask him in. This, however, would not he
strictly the truth, for I was if anything,
glad of the chance.
He was, anyhow, a relief to Mrs. Fortes*
cue's persistent babble, which waa becoming as wearisome as that of Tennyson's brook. Ho needed no pressing
'.ut came in at once, and stepped quite
naturally into the part of a tame cat
tlo showed us bow to make tea In tho
Russian fashion, and to drink it with little
slices of lemon instead of cream and sugar.
He rallied Mrs. Forteseue on her weakness
for an occasional cigarette. Ho told ua
how Russia is the only country in the
world whero you got champagne; because
it forestalls for years in advance the entire
yield of (bo champagne district; the only
country in the world where fresh caviare
is to be procured, and the ouly country
where you get enuilie tea, because Russian
teu is brought overland by caravan, ami
so does nut lose its arotua lu the courao of
���A sea voyage.
Thn more ho talked, the more it became
impossible to avoid contrasting what hu
had to tell us with the terrible platitude
of Sir Henry, Anil I began at last- indo-
entty tn wonder whether ho might tint be
possessed nf some aecret mission frum St.
Petersburg, and so probably knew far
more about my husband and his foibles
than he might choose to reveal.
The idea was amusing, if a little farfetched, and 1 could almost fancy I heard
Sir Henry himself pon der ju sly declaring,
as if it wero anew discovery thing himself iiiiinit.! credit, that Mr. Sabine was
evidently a must highly-educated young
man, with oroeptional abilities and powers
of observation, who must have spent many
years of his life in travel, and have mixed
in the most exclusive circles.
Wheu Mr. Sabine at lust took hia departure, Mrs. Fortesqtie was comparatively
youthful with radiance,
" Did I not always tell you so, my dear
Miriam? Is ho not marvellous? I believe
Iheieis nowhere he has not been, nothing
he has not done, antl nothing that he cannot tell you all about. I sometimes wonder whether he is not the Wandering Jew
himself, of whom they toll you at Venice,
v hore he last condescended to bIiow himself that he was the moat accomplished aud
fascinating person in tho wnrld. You have
never read tho ' Wandering Jew,' I suppose, I know that Mr. Sabine always
bring., him to my mind. Ouly thoy say the
Wandering Jew it indiscreet at times, and
apt to let nut who ho is aud where bo
has been. Catch Mr. Sabine letting out
anything about himself, Why, he does
net even keep a servant for fear tbe
fellow ahould chatter about where he has
been and what he has dono. 1 am sure
that there cannot be auy other reason,
for he haa plenty of money. At Vienna ho
ran horses iu his own name, ami had over
aome of the beat English jockeys; and
at Pari*] laat year, towards the very end of
the season, when we were all grumbling
about the heat and vistiing'oiirselvcs at the
North Pole, It turned out that he had actually gone right np to Spitsbergen and the
Kara Sea in a yacht of his own, and had
shot white bears, antl had speared walrus
and driven a sledge of Ksquimaux dogs,
aud aeon the sun in the aky for weeks at a
"He seems a very wonderful man," I
"Noxt time be comes, mention Patagonia.
I am sure yon will lind he haa boen there,
like dear Lady Florence Dixie, and seen tho
cannibals, and ill all probability, if he were
to own to it, shot a number of them, which
would be quite justifiable seeing lhat iney
aro terrible creatures who have no religion,
and do not cook their food, and murder you,
if they get tho chance, by strangling you
with a pi*ce of ropo and a big alt uu at
eaoh end uf it. I declare, my doar, that,
fascinating as ho Is, he sometimes makes mo,
in s,)ite of myself, feel quite uneasy and almost creepy."
Of coiuc I could only reply, that for my
own part 1 saw nothing so very terrible
ubout Mr. Sabine, and did uot consider that
Mrs. Forteseue need be under any immediate apprehension.
"It'a not myself, iny dear," arid Mra,
Forteseue, nodding her head moat sagely
and emphatically. " It would bo vanity
on my part to protend as much. But you
should be very careful with him, Miriam.
1 am quite sure that he is a very dangerous
man; not at all the man," she added, "fora
Devonshire vlllape, or even a Cathedral
town, and I doubt whether there is much
that he could learn even in Vienna itsolf.
Perhaps Sir Henry may be able to give
him a wrinkle or two tm his return from
that shockingly wicked city. Constantinople, whijIi they nay combines all the
vices of lho old world and tho new, wiMioul
a single redeoming virtue from either. If
anybody could be a match for him, it would
most certainly be Sir Henry."
And with this parting stab in thu back
both for Sir Henry and for myself, my
good friend retired to divest herself id her
war paint, and see what a night's sleep
could tlo towards temporarily repairing th
inexorable ravagoi of time.

oi the Minister of Finance," and waits but
upon the fulfilment, by the Standanl Company of one condition. One great foreign
refinery, that nf Mauheim, refuses to join
the trust, and one or two American associations, chiefly tho Independent Producers
Oil Company havo not yet surrrmdered to
the St a idard combination. Until either
the Manhein*. refuses to huy crude oil of
tho Producers Company, or the Producers
Company refuses to sell to Manheim
refineries, tlie monopoly will htill lack
liltle of being absolute, and the Bus-
in men will refuse to approve tho
treaty. This treaty was the result of a
meeting of Russian refiners held in St.
Petersburg at the request of the Russian
MiniHtii'of Finance some time previous ti
October, IS9.1. The purpose of this meeting wuh primarily to bring about an agreement iu the nature of a trust and under
lhe direction of the Government between
the producers and retuiers of petroleum in
the district ot Baku, Russia, practically
the only petroleum district in tho world
outside of the United States, under the
late of October, lSU't, the basis of such an
agreement was finally reached and put in :
writing. Thc representative of l\2 per
cent, of tbe Russian output, uml the
representatives of the Standard Oil Trust
participated in thu conference. Another
mooting was held iu St Petersburg on February I, when the details were perfected
and signatures attached to the memoranda
of agreement. Since that date nearly all
the Russian refiners had added their signatures to those of tho men who participated
lirectly iu the cniiferunce.

creamery butter, for the second half of ench
year from IH8H to ISO J, inclusive The
price of fall wheat fell from$1.05 to 70 7-10
cents, of spring wheat from $1, ��7 to 07 4-"i
cents, of barley from nl to 41 1-3 cents, of
oats from .'IS to 30 -\'t cents. The price of
factory cheese declined from lu.l.'i centg
per pouud to O.iVi cents, and of creamery
buttor from 21,83 to 20;59 cents. So that
lhe decline in dairy prices In ten years was
culy 0 por cent. ; in grain prices over .'III
per cent. Grain, especially wheat, became
still cheaper iu ISU.'t, so thai hail that year
been taken the comparison would have been
atill more favorable lo tho dairy.
Next, the raising of dairy products is fur
less exhaust ing to the soil. A table is given
showing thoamountof nitrogen, phosphoric
acid and potash removed from the earth by
the production of 91,000 worth, respectively, of timothy hay, wheat, barley, turnips,
fat cattle, whole milk, cheese and butler.
The showing is remarkable. If we take
the figure 1 as representing tho value of the
fertilizing elements exhausted by the production of $1,000 worth of butter, wo find
that cheese would be represented iu the
same process of exhaustion by the figure SS,
whole milk by 120, fat cattle hy 103, turnips by 275, barley by 410, wheat by 410,
hay by 550. So that $1,000 worth of hay
takes from tho aoil twice as much as tho
same value of turnips, and o"*Q times as
much as tho same value of butter.
From this it will be concluded that the
removal of hay from the farm is one of the
moat exhausting practices, and the exportation of hay in any large quantity from
Ontarioshould not be desired or encouraged.
The sale of live stook instead of grain re
tains a large portion of the soil const itu
ents of the crop upon the farm. In the
matter of dairy products there is a groat
difference ; thus whole milk sold off tho
farm removeB a great deal of soil constituents ; cheese removes loss, providing the
whey is returned to the farm ; butter removes practically nothing, providing the
skim milk and buttermilk are consumed
upon the farm. Dairy farming preserves
tho fertility of the farm, and iu many sasea
increases it, since aome extra food is frequently brought in for feodmg. The reason why butter removes so little from .the
soil is that it consists oi material which
the plant takes up from the air and not
from the soil.
From ISS:t to 1SII2 the number of cheese
factories io Ontario increased from It'l.'i tt
S.'ifi, the quantity nf cheese made from .r>3,
513,032 to 03,848,048 pounds ; its value
fiom $5,580,339 to 88,959, fh'K). Oo tha
175,000 farms of the Province thero are
800,000 milch cows, \\ au average of
4,000 pounds per cow, these produce 3,200,-
000,009 pounds nt milk, worth $:12,1100,(100
at 1 cent per pound. The number of cows
is susceptible of inurensc, since there are
fewer than five cows to the average 13(1-
acre farm.
Three-fourths or tho cheese made in Ontario is produced in Leeds, Granville, Oxford, Dundaa, Hastings, Lounox ami Ad-
diugton, Froiiteuae, M iditleicx, Pel th,
Lanark, Storumnt, Northumberland, Pros-
cott, Peterborough, Nlgin and Bruce, The

Leeds, with $807,3(10, and Hastings, with
$708,037. Leeds has tho greatest product
per head of tho population, 37 pounds, and
thc greatest number of factories, 70.
In 1872 the export of Canadian cheese
was 111,421,02') pounds; in 1832 it was "*'),���
807,010 pounds! in 1802, 118,270,052
pounds; in 1803, 133,94(1,305 pounds. Tho
value of the export increased iu twenty-one
years from $1,8-10,281 to $13,400,407. Tho
history of the butter export is less satisfactory. In 1872 wo exported 10,008,448
pounds, valued at $3,012,079. Iu 1880 wo
exported 1,780,70.' pounds, valued nt $331,-

The bulletin shows us who are our chief
rivals in the British market. Of2'i0,07'>,
501 pounds of choose which entered thai
market in 1892, 110,323,088 pounds came
from Canada, 01,004,490 from tho United
States, and 30,007,95*2 from Holland. Denmark, which sends uu insignificant quantity
ot oheese, easily leads iu butter, sending
90,715,584 pounds. Other countries follow
in this order :���France, 00,7811,044 pounds;
Sweden, 26,035,120 pounds ; Holland, 15,
885,850 pounds ; Germany, 13,014,090
pounds; Australasia, 0,802,240 pounds;
Canada, 0,071,952 pounds; United Status,
5,428,752 pounds.
The Danish butter also commands the
highest price: 24.4 cents in 1892, compared
with 18,7 centa lor Canadian buttor. Denmark has a population ubout equal to that
of Ontario, and a farm area about one-half
of lhat of Ontario, In 1805 it exported
only 10,837,000 pounds of inferior butter;
In 1801 over 100,000,000 pounds of the
highest quality. It is su valuable that
heap butler is imparled for liinne uso in
order that the best may be sold abroad.
The improvement is due tu ptuctical instruction in butter-making, to better feeding ami care uf stock, to the uso of tho
latest and bust machinery, and to the universal adoption ot the system of co-operative dairies. There are now nearly 1,500

Fish, ss everyone knows, have their organs adapted for swimming, so that they
exhibit arrangements very unfavorable for
any other kind of locomotion. However, a
few most interesting exceptions are observed. Certain types find themselves forced
either by surrounding circumstances or for
seeking food to leave the water for a certain
length of time. Among these is a Brazilian
fish called the maltha. It cannot swim,
but ia forced by its very organisation lo
walk or, perhaps, to hop after the manner
of toads, of which it has vaguely the exter

The locomotive organs exhibit truly inter
e-ititig arrangements. The anterior (the
pectoral fins), which are quite small, and
are situated under thc bolly, bave truly
the form of small, thin paws, terminating
ina widened fleshy portion, not at all palmate. Here we have already well -modi tied
fins ; they are no longer capable of acting
on the water, and must perform nothing
but backward and forward motions. But
the posterior organs (the ventral fins) are
still further transformed. They stand out
laterally, and first turn downward and then
bend forward and outward, forming a true
articulation. They terminate iu a wide
and fleshy paddle.
These are very different from the same
fins in other fishes, We have here the
formation of a true limb, that naturally
cannot serve for swimming, but only for
walking, after the manner of toads, which
move scarcely anything but the foot and
leg, the thigh remaining closely applied to
the body and nearly motionless.
Finally, one peculiarity which well shows
that tho animal ia destined for crawling Is
the form of the anal Hu, which, instead of
being protuberant antl flattened laterally,
is here adherent to the tail and llattened
vertically, so as to resemble a small, elongated and concave blade. This is one of

Another method has been introduced iu
some of lhe Knglish loxtiie mills for seeming uniform moisture of the utinoBphere,
The apparatus consists of a number nf wator
vessels fed by pipes from oiateriia or other
sources, and furnished with perforated
saucer-shaped covers, rims or flanges ; air
pipes, supplied witli nir under pressure, and
terminating in nozzles of contracted orifices
are fitted ahoye Ihese vessels, and one or
more spray of wator pipes, having similar
nozzles to the air pipes, meeting them at
tho angle required for spray producing;
between the spray pipes aud the vessels are
pulverizing disks aJjustablc to the former.
Now, the air���fresh, and heated or cooled
to thu desired temperature���rushes from
tho air pipes, draws the water from the
cistern through tho spray pipes, and dia-
perscs it iu the firm of spray which impinging against thu pulverising disk, is thrown
oil therefrom iu a very finely divided state,
aud carried away hy the air without condensing.
The principle and consequent, working of
this arrangement arc therefore obvious,
namely, that by inclosing the spray-pulverising apparatus, u considerable auxiliary
current of air is induced therein, which
mingles with tho ciiircnt produced by the
spraying apparatus, currying forward u
turgor und more widely distributed amount
of water, and, by reducing tbo size of the

The proposed Anglo-Canadian* Australian

Pacific cable is obviously deairablo,
says the London Globe, An alternative route to tho east, passing entirely
through British territory, would complete
an at present, imperfect circle, and would
render us considerably more independent of
all the incalculable chances i* nd conditions of

to the more direct connection of the several
portions of the empire, Hands upon merits
which call for insistanco. There is always
tho question of cost, and tho further question
us to whether the cost would bo commensurate with the advantages ; there is the
feasibility of the project, and lho nature of
the control of the system jf comploted. All
those important matters, and the swarm of

represent the proper charge for increasing

British Volunteer Officers.
AleQtUrQ was dotlVOro*] recently at the
Bovul United Service Institution  by Col.
T, S. Cave, which bas a certain interest
for Canadians m view of recent criticisms
on our volunteer force,    The subject was
the training of volunteer ollieers. -'id. Cave
said that tllO (rue basis of cfli-icncy in ,,
volunteer, as in every other military force,
was the capacity of its ollieers to lead und
commund. it might, he said, be considered
a paradox in say thut the officers were iln-
weak part of (he British volltntoor force,
antl at the same time to insist that the
force should be otlicered by volunteers. Kx-
perleuco,however,had ehnwn this to be true.
Only volunteers should command volunteers.
The only solution of tho difficulty,therefore,
was todevlseond carry outa better system of
Instruction for thoso who held commissions
in the force. How could the necessary improvement be eRooted ! His reply was that
it could be brought about by means of the
promotion examinations. To this end a
modification iu the present regulations was
urgently needed. The utmost that he would
add to the compulsory examination wmibl
he to rentier iho passing iu drill before a
board us thorough a lost, as it was now to
pass at. school, and to require, a oaptain to
pass in tactics before promotion   to field
rank. What Wuh uuccuHsary for these
reforms was a Bohool of instruction, organized ou the same lines as the school for

An Ideal Wife*
The ideal wile is certain to prove herself
God's best gift to man. She must lie uot
only a helper, but a suitable companion in
whose society the husband finds a foretaste
of the delii/hta of heaven. She will be a
woman in the truest aenae��� not'a dressmaker's figure for lhe display of due raiment. A woman endowed with the spirit
of nobility, nmt moved by love to reverence
all thingsgoodand true. Deep in sympathy
with all that ia noble; equally intense in
hatred against all that is base. A generous,
piire-souicd, tender-hearted woman. Poor
men have become giants in goodness und
virtue through the love und euro of such
The ideal wife need not be rub. She
should bo thrifty, however, uud have
learned how lo wisely spend tho money
committed to her charge, To do this she
should bu able tooook and sew, and systematically direct the affairs of a household.
It is a misfortune wheu women, otherwise
helpful as wives, fail entirely In this particular.
Our wjfo need not belieauiiful lu appearance. It is noteworthy that the most of
the best woman iu history have been plain*
looking. We do nut object to u lovely
woman shining at tho bead of our table-
lips like cherries ripe, uud fresh cheeks
like tho June rosea; wo do not object, yea,
would prefer thi.--, but beauty js uoneceasily
for an ideal wife. She musl not be ugly.
No noble woman is ugly.    Sho cannot be.
Nor need tho ideal wife be intellectually
clever. What is of more importance thau
cleverness or perfect education is���the de.
sire to know more. Here many wives fail.
They havo gone the usual coui'Bo of study,
and are satisfied. This is a mistake. Let
the wife constantly desire to know more,
and then she will bo a fellow-student with
the husband. What interests him will
interest her. Besides, if in the course of
events, " wife" ia written *' mother,"
alio will thou have a modern stock of
knowledge at the service of her children.
Nothing so undermines parental authority
as the fact that theehildreuuieso advanced
as to he able to correct tho grammar and
history of thoir purenta. The moment the
children feel they know* better than llieir
parents certain of tbe elements of education,
ull authority is at an end, An ideal wife,
should, therefore, ever be desirous of adding
to her stock of knowledge.
She must, of course, love her husband
with all the earnestiics-j of love. We
assume bo is worthy of such devot ion. 11 is
welfare and eond name arc previous In her
eyes. What adds to hia comfort and manliness she will try to give us fur as lies iu
her power. Men are looking unxioualy for
women who approach within ineasureable
distance of thia "ideal"��� women whom they
can love nnd cherish and work for, and
from whom they will get a heart's devotiou
in return.

Salted Almonds.

After tho nuts are shelled pour boiling water over them and let them hi and two or
tliroo minutes, when they blanch very easily ; thon place them on flat tins or dishes

The News is greatly complimented by
Ilic tirade of abuse which Mr. Scll-ir.
schmidt has showered upon it at thc van
,..us public meetings which he has ad- I
dressed. Hut he should remember that j
,-.-are not on trial but he is. And he
should make use of his opportunities to
disprove any allegation which lhe NEWS
has made against him which is not strictly correct. Throwing epithets al us
gathered from the slums is not a defence
of himself. Hut he is at liberty to pursue
his own course. A newspaper, flourishes by advertising, and il does nut make
much diffence what is said.if it is only
talked about. We arc glad thai Mr.
Scharschmidt has had ample time 10 vin
dicate himself; whether he litis done so
i. fir those to judge who havctleard him
I ioubtlcss he feels greatly relieved ancl
we trust thc public no longer consider .
him an object of sympathy. ,

Tu the proprietor of the Weekly Newi.
Pear nir, 1 live in Comox, and my name ii Truthful John;
I like to notice everything of import going on.
With the lid ��'��� simple languege I'll endeavor to narrate
The pol tioa of H���nt- r, and of Sch���m���dt up to date.
Well! first there was a meeting in a drug store ilose at hand,
Where Seh���m���ilt, Cr���ch and C���a���y met their valiant little band.
To promulgate a little scheme which since transpired to be
To oust our present representative J. H--nt���r, M, P. P.
* The meeting was convened, and, in dark-lantern sort of way,
Kanh member of the valiant band invited, hurt hie say.
It seemed to he the feeling, there, that Mr. J. McP���ee
Would be the proper candidate to run aa M. P. P.
Hut H���nt���r's late opponent was unwilling, now to stand;
They, therefore, had to choose one from material at hand.
The modest P���y Seh-*in--dt rose and aaid he'd like to be
The party's choice aa candidate to run aa M. P. P.
Tis true I always, have opposed the government in power,
But find they gain suppnrtt-rs every day and every hour.
Like Joseph I will change my cunt; to me it seems tobe
The only chance of getting in as Comox M. P. P,
1 hate the name of H���nt���r, boys, and alt the Dunsmuir crew.
Hue. what their horrid railway scheme has done for m�� and you;
There's nothing more atrocious than monopolists to mo;
So now you have a chance, my boys, by making me M. P.
I'll do my beat to bluff them and put ev'ry effort forth
To run the Canada Western and to boom the land up north;
There'*- little chance of getting it, but then, there's land, you see,
To be converted for your good, and mine--if I'm M. P.
Now, nothing must transpire outside of what we're saying here;
Or hopes oi netting dollars, boys, will quickly disappear.
1 have tbe money at my baok, as you'll both hear and see
To try and boom thia little scheme, by making me M. P,
Hear! hear! they cried, that valiant band, when Shorty said bis say,
It's time we had you in the tit-Id and ready for the fray;
Wh)! you're the very man we want, and meetings tht re shall be;
And we will try our level best to make you our M. P.
Another intcting, soon, was held, when Shorty met his band,
With comrades Or���oh and C���s��� y there to try (I understand)
To formulate a programme which in ev'ry way ahould be
Kuticing to th' electors in tbe choice of M. P. P.
The programme wu distributed with prudence, (so I And)
To those .who bad been canvassed first to test their state of mind;
Now, nothing oould be liner, or more beautiful to see,
Than many of the pledges of our "wonld be" M. P. P.
When nomination day approa> h'd with might and main they tried
To leaten sums deficiency on I'��� r���y Sch���m --dt'a side
of eight and twenty dollars for deposit due; else he
Would loose his chance of staouing for a Comox M. P. P.
Tbe difficulty over, air, the first name to appear
Wu J���ph H- ut���r, M  P. P. and civil engineer
Theu P-r���y F -wl -n Soh���-m-.-dt who (though medical student, he)
Would aooru M. l>. il he oould see hia way to be M. P*
The canvassers were anon at work, aud, like that ilk of old,
With pure unblushing confidence to many voters told
I We will not call them lies, dear sir, hutj strong hyperbole,
Enough to shuck the morals of an honest M. P. P.
With subterfuges of this sort with which they were delighted,
A Shnrty meeting soon wu called and H*-nt���r was invited
The Court'nay school room wu engaged and many went to see
And hear the speeches of the two for ohoioe of M. F, P.
Tbe meeting, I am glad to aay, wu orderly and quiet;
Though rumour had Iwen current, air, that there would be a riot,
The chair wu taken for the night by Mr. J* McP���ee,
With Soh   m-dt ready for tbe fight with H���nt��� r, M. P. P.
Now! first nf all I must remark it's not a decent plan
For any worthy citizen to slang his fellow man,
Civility is each man's right, no matter if he lie
The owner of the Weekly News or, "would be" M. P. P.
The programme wu expounded in a fluent sort of way
By Shorty; but t wu soon exposed when 11���nt- r had his say
The meeting wu instructive for each one oould plainly see
The arguments of Shorty floor'dby H ���nt���r M. P. P.
Proceedings wire enlivened and the people laughed and uid
That Mr. J. B. H���lm��� s wu on bis feet and off his head,
Or, on his head and off his feet (which ever way it may he)
1 tu evident he figured then u little Jumping J. B.
To criticise the candidateH your favor I wonld wk,
Four years good work has ll���nt���-r done and well fulfilled his task,
Whilo Hch���m���dt, on the other hand, (a good sort though he be)
Is not as sound in politics u H*-nt��� r M. P. P.
ThiB short advice to voters, sir, (if you will pardon me)
Return the best man when you oan, he'll prove tha best M. P.
And when the campaign's over, and the battle loat aud won;
Shake handa and be good friends, my boys,   .
Yoars truly,

After the late disasterous tire in Nanaimo the Insurance Companies cancelled a large number of policies in some blocks.   We
have just $10,000.00 to place just at present in any other Company.
Now we cannot afford to carry over large stock without sufficient insurance Consequently we are compelled to unload. To do
this quickly we have put the (rices lower on everything in our immense stock���than Dry Goods have ever bten bought befoie���less
than cost in nearly every in tance. See price lists which we have
