Money Wanted.
There are quite a number of those who
signed as members of the Como:- Agricultural and Industrial Exhibition, last
spring who have not yet paid their membership fee. Will they not kindly do. so
now, without waiting to be called on?
Those residing on Hornby Island can
hand the amount to Mr. George Heath-
erbell- Director, and those living on Denman Island will please pay lo Mr. Alex.
McMillan, Director. All others will
probably (ind it as convenient to hand
the monev directly to the Secretary, Our
friends will please not delay, as it is essential that thc Directors should know
precisely how much they can depend upon.
The iiauii--* of new members are being
added to the roll daily by thc Secretary,
It is trusted that this movement will be
continued until ihcre is not a farmer or
business man in Ihe district whose name
is not on lhe membership roll. Wc need
the money and we need the help of all,
and wc want a membership so large (ensuring a pronounced success) lhat we
shall be glad to exhibit it as 0 Roll uf

Bring in the Books.
Many people throughout the district
have onc or more volumes of the old
public library. Thc Courtenay Athletic
Club as the successor of the defunct association to which these belonged is gath
ering them in that they may be catalogued
and loaned out to the public again under
proper system and regulation. In this
way ibe-original intention will be carried
out and the public receive the benefit.
Members of thh Club are also requested
to make returns of any bonks in their
possession belonging to the Club.
Something Long Wanted.
It is with pleasure that THE WEEKLY
News announces that Courtenay and
Union will both soon lie branches of a
now building and loan society, which is
now organized to do business exclusively
on Vancouver Island. The head office
will be in Nanaimo, but its operations
will extend as far north as Comox District.
Thc objects of the society are twofold,
first to loan monev, repayable in small
monthly installments: and secondly, as a
���savings bank, to provide an absolutely
safe.and at ihc same time highly profitable investment f��r inqmbly savings. It
is different in many w,i-s from other so-
Cteties, and claim**- to have adopted the
best rules known. To begin with, il is
foundedon true building soeitity principles
that is co-operation. Us directors com*
prise some of thc best known nnd most
1nffuenc1.il business men of Nanaimo, .ill
of whom give their services without remuneration; indeed ihe only official under salary is the secretary. It is therefore a money making arrangement for
the shareholders only. Each share participates equally in all the   pro Is   made.
There nre no preferred shareholders to
take part of the prnlils, and there arc no
salaried managers, traveling Inspectors,
etc, to pay. Thc capital of the society
is $5,000,000, divided into shares of $100
each. Thc shares are payable 60 els each
per month, nnd the profits made are divided eery six months, maturing the
shares in about seven years. Every
month a meeting is held which every
shareholder can attend, and all the money
the society has on hand is loaned out at
that meeting in sums lo suit, from $too
upwards to the highest bidder. A mortgage is executed to the association to secure thc money loaned, which is repaid
in sums of $1.50 per inon-h for each $too
borrowed. This includes principal and
interest. When the shares mature, say
in seven years,*the loan is all repaid, and
the mortgage is cancelled. This method
of loaning and repaying is the best system in use. By it every shareholder is
entitled to borrow $ico for every share
he holds, and he can get it just when he
wants it. ft can be repaid at anytime if
desired, or by larger payments if thc
member prefers to pay it olT quicker. A
member not residing in Nanaimo, is at
no disadvantage. He can get the loan
any month, by writing any ofthe directors, the secretary, or a friend, to attend
the meeting for him. This is also the
cheapest way to borrow money, as well
as the most convenient in lhe plan ot
monthly repayments of principal and interest.
The savings bank feature is admirable,
Thc security absolute. Thc society never keeps money ou hand, it is loaned out
monthly, and draws interest the first
month; and then compound interest every
month afterwards, because ihc amounts
repaid are retained at once.
A member can always withdraw, and
in doing so-/c-ls not only all the money
he has jjaid in for monthly dues, but the
profits besides, and these profits arc very
large. In most olher socieiies, a member
cannot withdraw without losing 10 pet
cent or thereabouts of ihe cash he has
actually paid in, no matter if he has been
a member for years. Supposing the
shares to mature 111 7 years, a member
holding 10 shares, would have paid in $6
per mouth for 84 months, or .1504 and
his fee of 75 cents per share, making a
total paid in of $511,50. For this he will
get $1,000���a profit of $488.50,
No person need have any doubts as to
the absolute security of his money. The
directors are ail too well known to allow
of any question on lhat point. The officers who handle the money" are under
Thc society is worthy of thc support
of every citizen ofthe district, whether as
a borrower, or simply ns an investor The
pamphlets fully explaining the workings
of it, are now in the printer's hands and
will be ready vry **ooh for distribution.
Without a doubt it is thc best society of
the kind any onc could join. It is a
home institution and as such deserves
the patronage of lhe citizens m preference
to any outside companies. A few copies
ofthe prospectus can be had at the office
of The Weekly News,

Bird Fancier.
Mr Robert Graham, lhe popular pro-
prietor of the Couricrtay Mouse is developing quite a taste for fowls. He has
bome fine young brown leghorn hens lhat
are beauties, and which have a natural
felft for producing eggs.
In looking about I noticed some Asiatics with lofty figures and well rounded
bodies, and a crop nf feathers reaching to
the feet. They are known as Wyandottes
- -good layers and splendid table fowls.
But (his is not all,
Do you see that fowl with feathers black
as the stiirles-i night, a comb red as a
tongue ol flame, long shapely legs, on
which is mounted a lithe, graceful body,
with a long arching neck and a white
muffler of feathers around its throat and
covering its checks?
It is a black Spanish cock.
You can tell that it is ofa noble strain.
Every step denotes quality, and like a vet
eran that he is, he shows ihe scars of
many a hard fought battle. His comb
has been cut by the Damascus tempered
teeth ofa powerful enemy and the sharp
claw ofa hero worty of his skill has torn
one of his eyes from its socket. In spite of
all this he is a noble looking bird and
would attract attention anywhere, much
more where his record is known.
He has won first prizes.

Thore wero several on board who knew,

Lambert, a barrister of tho Middle Temple
and thu other was Mrs. Townluy, a widow,

family, who, on a pleasant: journey in Scotland, hud met, conquered, and married u
wealthy young American, and had been left
uhiue in thu world, hy uo means portionless,
eighteon months before. Lambert know
Richard Armour well, aud wheu, (run
Francis Armour's solicitor, whom he knew,
he heard, just before they Started, who the
Indian girl was, he was greatly allocked and
sorry. He guessed at once tho motive, tho
mildness of this mnrriage. Hut he kept his
information uud bin opinions mostly to himself, except in no far us it scorned only due
to- friendship to contradict ihe numhcrloss
idle stories going about, After tho first
day at hcu ho cume to know Mrs. Townley,
and when he discovered that they had many
mutual friends and that she knew the
Armours, ho spoke a littio more freely to
her regarding the Indian wife and told her
what lio believed wan the caune ot the
Mra. Townley wns a woman���a girl���nf
uncommon gentleness of disposition, and,in
spite of her trnuhlt-H, inclined to view life
with a sunny eye    Sho had known of
Frank Armour's engagement with Miss
���InliaSherwond, but she had never heard
tho sequel. I this wan tho sei-uol ��� well,
it had to Im faced, Ititt sho was nl
muat tremulous wiih sympathy when she
remembered Mrs. Armour- and   Frank's
gay, fashionable sinter, Marion, and uuii-
teinplntiid tho arrival of thia Indian girl
at I ireyhope. Bho had always liked Frank
Armour, hut ibis made her angry with him:
for, nn second thoughts. Bho was nut mure
sorry for him and lor bis people ihan for
Lib, the wife. She had the true instinct
of womanhood, and hIio supposed that U
heathen like this could have toolings to he
hurt aud a life to ho wou.ided ns herself ur
aiinLlicr. At least she snw whnt was
possible in Ihe future when this Indian girl
oame tn understand her position,���only In
be accomplished by contact with the now
life, no different from her post, Hoth she
ami Lambert decided that nhe was very line-
look ing, not wi thnt and im: her cnatume. She
was slfin and well built, with modest bust
and shapely feet und ankles, Hor eyes were
large, meditative nud Intelligent, her feu*
turiM distinguished. Sho waB a goodly product of her race, boing descended from a lino
of chiefs ami chieftaincsses���broken only in
the oase of her grandfather, as we have said,
Hur hands (the two kindly Inquisitors de
cided) were almost her liest point. They
were perfectly mado, slim yet plump, tiu
lingers tapering, tho wrist supple. Mrs,
Townley then nnd there decided that the
girl had possihilitiea. But here alio wns, nn
Indian, with few signs of civilization or
that breeding which aeema to whito people
the only breeding fit for earth or heaven.
Mrs. Townley did not need Lambert's
suggestion that she diould try and approach
the girl, make friends with her, and prepare
her iu some slight degree for the strange
career l)cforo her.
Mrs. Townly hud an infinite amount of
tact. She know it wan best to approach
the attendant drat. Thin she did, nud, to
the surprise of other lady-passengom,
received nn rebuff. Her advance wan nut,
however-rapid, Mackenzie had had her
instructions. When she found that Mm.
Townley knew Francis Armour and hia
people, ahe thawed a little more and then
very hesitatingly, she introduced her to the
more than onco^ and wasanxiousconcerning
the reception of tho heathen wifo by her
white relatives.
Had he been present at a certain scene
at Greyhopn a day or two beforo, ho would
havo heon still more anxious. It wns the
custom, at breakfast, for Mrs. Annum- to
open her husband's letters and road them
while ho wan engaged with Ids newspaper,
ami hini I to him afterwards those that were
important. This morning Marion noticed a
letter from Frank among tho pile, and,
without a Wprd, pounced upon it. She was
curious���ns any woman would be���to aee
how he took Miss Sherwood's notion, Her
father wns deep iu hi-* paper ut tho time.
Hor mother wns rending other letters,
Marlon l-end the tirst few lines with n feeling of almost painful wonder, tho words
wero bo curious, cynical, and cold.
Richard sat opposite her. He also was
engaged with his paper, but chancing to
glance Up, he saw that she was becoming
vory pale, an I that the letter trembled in
her fingers, lteing a little short-sighted
ho was not near enough to soo the handwriting. He did not speak yet. Ho watched, Presently, seeing her grow more excited, he touched hor foot under thu table.
Sho looked up, and caught his eye, She
gasped slightly. Sho gave him a warning
look nnd turned nwny from hor mother.
Then she wun ton reading tothe bitter end.
Presently n little cry escaped hur ngttiust
her will. At thnt her mother lookod up,
hut she only saw her daughter's back as she
rose hurriedly from the tabic, saying that
she would ret urn in n moment. Mrs. Arm*
our, however, hud l>ecn stnitled. She know
that Marion had been reading a letter, nnd,
with n mother's instinct, her thoughts were
instantly on Frank. Shn spoke ipiickly,
almost sharply : " Marion, uuinu hore."
Kichard had risen. Hoenmernuudthotablo
and, as the girl obeyed her mother, took the
bitter from lier lingers and hastily ((lancnil
over L. Mra, Armour came forward and
took her daughter's arm, "Marion," she
said, "there is sumelhing wrong���with
Prank.   Whnt is it';"
General Armour wan now looking up nt
them all, curiously, queslioningly, through
his glasses, Ida paper laid down, his hands
resting on the table.
Marion could not answer. She was sick
with regret, vexation, and shame : nt tho
lirst Hush death-���for Frank���hud been preferable to this. She had a considerable
store of vanity; sho was not very philosophical, lli-sules, she was not married ; nnd
what Captain Vidall, her devoted admirer
ami possible husband, would think of
this heathenish alliance was not n cheerful
thought to her. She choked down a sob,
and waved her hand towards Kichard to
answer for her. He was pale too, hut cool.
He underitood the ense instantly ; ho mado
up Ina mind instantly also na to what ought
to he���must he���done.
" Well, mother," ho said, "it ia about
Frank, Hut ho is all right; that is, ho is

" Married ! Married 1" said his father.
"Well, what about it? ch T what ubout

Kichard, miacrabte as he was, remained

about her being horrible ; Frank Is silent
nn that point; but she is wild onnugh,���n
wild Indian, in fact!"

starting to his feet.

" Oh, how could he 1 how could hei"
said his mother : " we meant everything

" It is always dangerous business meddling with lovers' affairs," rejoined Richard, "Lovers take themselves vory seriously indeed, and���woll, hern the thing is 1
Now, who will go and fetch her from Liverpool T-���I should Buy that both my father
mil mother ought toga" Thus Kichard
tnnk it for granted that they would receive
Frank's Indian wife into their home, He
intended that, sn fur as he wus concerned
thure should be no doubt upon tho question
from tho beginning.
"Nover 1 she shall never come hero !"said
Marion, with flashing eyes ; "a common
squaw, with greasy hair, und liluukets, and
big mouth, and black teeth, who eati with
her lingo* s and grunts I If sho does, if the

my face in tho world again. Frank im-tiried
the animal: why does he ship her home to
us? Why didn't ho come with her 1 Why
docs,he not take her to a homo of his own,
und not send her here to turn nur house into
a menagerie ?"
Marion drew her skirt back, as if tho
common squaw, with hor hla-ikets and
greaso, was at thnt moment nenr.
" Well, you seo," continued Richard,
* that is just it. As I said, Frank nrrangod
thin little complication with a trilling
amount of malice. No doubt he didn't
come with her, bccaime he wished to test
the family loyalty and hospitality ; hut a
posteript to this letter suys that his solicitor has instructions to meet his wife at
Liverpool and bring her on here in case we
fad to show her proper courtesy."
General Armour here spoke. " Ho has
carried the war of retaliation very far indeed, but non do mad things when their
blood is up, as I nave seen often. That
doesn't alter our clenr duty in the mat ter.
If the woman wero had, or ahamoful, it
would bo a different thing ; if-���"
Marlon interrupted: "Sho hns ridden
bareback across the continent liko a jockey,
-���and sho wears a blanket, and alio doosu't
know a word of English, and nho will sit on
the floor I"
*' Well," said her father, " all these
things are not sins, and she must he taught
" Joseph, how can you t" said Mrs. Armour, indignantly. "She cannot, she
shall nut como here. Think of Marion t
think of our position 1" She hid her troubled tear-stained face behind her handkerchief. At the same time she grasped hor
husband's hand. She knew that he was
right. She honored lnm in her heart for
the position he had taken, but she could
not resist the natural impulse of a woman,
where her taste und convention wore shocked.
The old man was very pale, but there
wns no mistaking his determination.
He hnd been moro indignant than any of
them at first, but he had an unusual sense
of justice when he got face to face with it,
as Richard had here helped him to do,
"Wo do not know that tho woman hns done
any wrong," he said. "Ab for our namo
and position, they, think God 1 are where
a mad marriage cannot unseat them. We
have hnd much prosperity in thc world,
my wife; wo havo had neither death nor
dishonor; ws "
" If this isn't dishonor, father, what is ?"
Marion flashed out.
He answered calmly, "My daugtter.it
is a great misfortune, it will probably he a
life-long trial, but it is not necessarily dishonor."
" Vou never can mako a scandal less hy
trying to hide it," said Richard, backing up
his father. " It is all protty awkward, hut
I dure any wo shall get some amusement nut
of it iu ihe end,"
" Kichard,'' said his mother through her
tears, "you are flippant and unkind 1"
" Indeed, mother," was his reply, " 1
never was more serious in my life. When I
spoko of nmusoment, I meant comedy merely, noi fun,���the thing that looks like tragedy and has a happy ending. That is what
I mean, mother, nothing more."
" Vou ure always so very deep, Richard,"
remarked Marion, ironically, "nnd care so
very little how the rest of us feol about
things. You havo no family pride. If you
had married a squaw, we shouldn't have
heen surprised. You could huve camped in
the grounds with your wild woman, ami
never have lieen missod���by the world," sho
hastened to add, for she saw a sudden pain
in his face,
He turned from thom all a little wearily,
and limped ovor to the window. He stood
looking out into tho limes where ho and
Frank had played when hoys. He put liis
fingor up, his unhandsome finger, and caught
away some moisture from his eyos. He did
not dare to let thorn sen his face, nor yet to
speak, Marion had out deeper than she
knew, and ho would ourry tho wound for
many a day bofore it healed.
Hut his ajator felt instantly how cruel she
had been, us sho saw him limp awuy, nud
caught sight of the bowed shoulder-iand the
premnturoly gray hair. Her heart smote

my trouble was caused by inflammation of
tho spinal cord, nnd that I would likely
have another stroke of paralysis. 1 consulted Dr. I. W. Gross and Dr. Paucnost,
of Jefferson College. Philadelphia, with the
samo result, I called in Dr. Moorehouuo, of
Philadelphia, who Said thut no amount of
mediumo would ovor prove of lho slightest
benefit tn mo.
"Ono day last September I decided to
try Dr. Williams' Pink Pills for Pale People.
I sent for nne box. I had always been
troubled with a sort of vertigo after my first
stroke of paralysis to such an extent thnt
when I got out of my bed my head would
swim, and I had dilliculty in saving myself
from fulling. My appetite was had, digestive organs ruined, and no assimilation of
fond. In addition to my many other ailments, rheumatism held u prominent place.
Hy lho time I had finished the first box of
"'ink Pills I was comparatively freo from
Iiobq minor ills. My appetilo returned,
the digestive organs got down to their daily
grind and tho rheumatism disappeared. 1
wai much encouraged and immediately son1,
for half u dozen boxes of tho Pink Pills.
Relief followed upon relief with astonishing
rapidity. First, one ailment would disappear, then iinolhur, until the pills got to
work upon the foundation stones of my
trouble���paralysis. I felt u sense of exhilaration and lhe general eflect was beneficial,
becoming more so each day. Noting this
fuel, I increased  lhe dose from one to two
fills after ench meal for a fow days. Beforo
had taken the six boxes of Pills, I wns sitting in my chair one afternoon, when I felt
n curious sensntion in my left foot. Upon investigation, 1 found it had flexed, or, in
other words, become movable, and I could
move it. From that time on my improvement was steady and it was not long before
I was walking around on ernlclus with
little or no discomfort. It was three years
before taking the Pink Pills that I had been
able to use the crutches at any time. My
health is daily Improving and I feel euro
thai Piuk Pills hnvo dono me moro goo]
thnn all tho doctors und all the medicine in
the country and as they aro not costly I can
candy afford the treatment*.
Dr. Blundin tells of another remarkable
cure effected by the uso of Pink Pills. Ono
of his comrades in the army was Lewis J,
Allan, of 1 Sal tie Creek, Michigan, who hns
been a sufferer from rheumatism nil his life,
Mr. Allan is a grandson of I'.ihan Allan of
revolutionary fame, "I know," said Dr,
Blundin, "that Mr. Allan could not lift his
arms to his head, or even his hands to his
mouth,because of chronic rheumatism." He
rend in u Detroit paper of n wonderful cure
made by Pink Pills and bought some. His
ouro was sudden and complete. Knowing
thnt I was a sufferer trom rheumatism,along

Wednesday, Sept. 13,1893
In looking over our books we find that
many of our subscribers are in arrears,
sonic of them fnr many months. Newspapers can not be run on credit, and we
must urge all who know themselves to
be indebted to us to tit once forward thc
Editorial Notes.
Our member, Mr. Joseph Hunter, we
arc glad to know, is taking a deep interest in our Agricultural Exhibition. As
will be seen elsewhere in these columns,
be offers a prize of a silver cup of tbe value of $50 for the best animal exhibit in
Division A, and a prize of the value of
$10 for the best dairy exhibit in Division
Mr. Hunter has also secured for the
Exhibition a grant of $200 from the Government. This with tbe membership
fees, entry fees, and gate n-jpney, will it is
believed, enable the association to meet
its obligations.
The grant of $1,000, secured for the
long bridge through the efforts of our
member, Mr. Hunter, will be immediately applied to repairing that structure. It
came none to soon, as the bridge has
lately shown unmistakable signs of debility. A collapse was possible, nay probable at any time. With the funds now in
hand, however, it may be made secure
until another season when it is hoped
and expected that an embankment of a
permanent character will take the place
ofthe bridge. For such embankment, it
- > said, it will be necessary to have two
. rows of piles, planked on the inside and
filled in with earth, with a short bridge
and flood gate. If that be so, the new as
as well as some cf the old material ofthe
long bridge can be utilized, so that what
is expended now will not be thrown away
We have spoken plainly about the
bridge, from time to time, because we
believed that the public were endangered
in traveling over it, but now that such
danger is to be removed, we are content
tn wait until another year.
We are on the western coast of the
Province and within the wet belt; hence
we have an over abundance of moisture.
The long rainy springs and early wet falls
give a short season for the growth of
crops, and the farmer is often unable to
gather his harvest until it is ruined.
There is one sure, safe, and practicable
remedy for this, and that consists, in the
thorough drainage of the land. Hy this
means the season may be made a month
earlier; or in other words, the farmer, on
well drained land, may put in his crop a
month earlier, and when the seed is in it
will germinate and grow.
The farmer should adopt a system for
���he drainage of his lands, and then commence with a part of it, adding to the a-
rea of his drained land each year until
all that portion devoted to fruit, vegetables and grain is covered by the system.
He will then l)c enabled to hai vest his
crops, and to raise vastly more than lie
Otherwise would. The soil will loose its
acidity, nnd the atmosphere will penetrate
through the well drained earth leaving its
enriching properties.
The Exhibition ofthe Comox Agricultural Association to be held here on the
���28th inst., will probably bring together
the largest crowd that has ever been
seen in this district. It will also largely
advertise this section and bring to the
attention of strangers our magnificent
valley and immense agricultural recources
Let everyone, therefore, assist to swell
the exhibits with the best he may have,
so that they shall worthilv represent thc
district. As this is an industrial exhibition as well as agricultural, our me. chants
and business men should make a suitable
exhibit of their wares. Local works of
art, tbe fair handiwork of our women,
mineral, marine, insect and like collections, curios and Indian emblems, all
should be brought that the exhibition
may be of a character to interest all.
Let the public schools vie with each other in sending beautiful specimens of penmanship. Already the lists of articles in.
tended for entry are coming in. As
the time approaches the interest increases. The enthusiasm appears to be con-
tageous. Let no one seek the unenviable
distinction of being the last to furnish the
encouragement of his name and member-
s.1 p fee.

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 the 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 the Coast
can boast of, and 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.
