wandered into town. Thu women
barred their doors und windows. The
men armed themselves to the teeth
with knives, picks, guns and revolvers and hiud away like groused lightning to whero tho hungry donizeu of
the forost was holding camp. ' Each
knight wus more eager than the othor

At last tho beast of prey wus seeu
from a distance, showing Its fangs
und lushing Us tall with fury. Presto,
a mighty change took place. This
fourloss bund intent only on tho un.-
nial's destruction, when they suw it
becume as meek as lambs.' Tho proverbial dog With his tail between his
logs was not iu it; feur prevailed ;
they caved in, turned, and fled.
All flod but ono man—Jim Frew by
namo—tho hero of many un onooun-
ter in the forest with all kinds of
gamo. He knew what was at stake.
With gun iu hand he strode rapidly
and boldly forward until within easy
range of tho panther, then, with
cool head, steady hand and eye that
never failed to take true sight, ho
uitnod the deadly weapon at tho ravenous boast, pulled thu trigger aud
the' panther rolled oyer ilo.ul, thus
uddlng another hide to his vast and
varied collection.
It might be as well to add that
there is money In panther killing,
and that Jim's shot was n well paid
ono, reaping us he did $L5.00 us
bounty from tho Government for its
extinction and still left thc proud
ownor of tho skin us a reference

Two good uuiitiul stories are going
tho lucul rounds this week thut are
worth repeating,
Almost everyotfie in town knows
Mr. San Gillies and his fuiihful
black dog that shadows his toot
stei s. Mr. Gillies also has a cat
liccently the cat had kittens which
Mr. Gillies petted several-times
the presence of hls dog who showed
some displeasure, ominating from
Jealousy. The other day, when he
thought he wus unobserved, and during the absence ,01' the mother cat,
the dog stole around und carried oil
the kittens one by.one to a hole he
had dug in the ground. Having placed all the kittens therein, he scraped the dirt over them completely covering them up. And who will say
that a dog has no reasoning
The other story is that of a local lady who hatched an egg. Be-
contly a well-bred hen wns boing
brought Oiver on. the bout. Oh the
trip over, being an industrious hen,
she laid un egg. As the steumer
was not [intd for the freightage on
an egg the same wns appropriated
by one of the men on the boat— it
was not the Juan— and given to his
wile. - Boing from a prizo fowl, the
wife determined to havo it hatched.
Her hens were all through setting,
liut the resourceful woman managed
tu hutch the egg. She slipped it
every night under a hen with tho
little chicks, and getting up lirst
thing in the morning, tuok tho egg
and placed it inside the bosom of
her dress. When not carrying lt
there, or leaving it undor a hon, It
was placed in a warm place by the
stove. Ono day at dinner, a wee
cheeping wus heard, and on investigation, It was found thut the chicken hod ieen hatched in the lady's
shirt waist while at tho table. Tho
chick, which Is now grown Into a
fine springer, is a healthy looking
specimen and is now une of the most
promising looking of tho many fine
fowls in Mrs. yard.

H. li. lteusly and Mr. Uuiuliridge,

Unless They Get 88.00

The regatta on the First of July,
in all probability wlll.be without
what hus always been considered it*
une Inevitable feature. The Indiana

iniioe r. i ei. Uight dollars a paddle was given them ia Nanaimo on,
ihe 25th uf May, and naturai'y they,
nbject to racing hi ro lur live dollar*
n paddle. Now, ut 88 n paddle
for the first bunt ihis race alone
would iigure out at SU4 and this
sum, it will be generally agreed, ls
considerably more than th* fsatur*
is worth. At any rate the commit-
lee have decided that they cannot
give more than live dollars a pad-
dlo for lirst, nnd if the Indians hold
out there will be no canoe races.
Meantime the committee are looking afler other attrnctiuns. They
have get tho Y.M.C.A. Swimming
Club, and are endeavoring to get
some four-onred crews. Thero is
nothing prettier to watch than a
"four", unless it be an eight, and if
only three or four crews can be secured the absence uf the canoe race*
will never be felt.
In additiun extra swimming race*
are being arranged, and a relay contest, uO yards, three men, wiU be
made a strong feature. The regatta, it should be understuod, will be
strictly amateur, but nothing hand-
sutuer in the way of prizes have been
ollerod on the Island. It is up to
the home boyB to get Into training

There has been considerable comment in the local press on the land
clearing operations which ore either
now being carried uut, or which are
projected, by the Canadian Pacific
itailivay Company. The Vancouver
World had information that one
thousand acres of land were to be
cleared around Qualicum, from which
it was led to dilute un the policy of
the railway company and the future
of the Island. There Is, it uftpears,
. something in the Qualicum story.
A- small tract of land is to bo cleared up there, and if the experiment is
successful, larger sections will be
immediately prepared for cultivation.
The some thing can be said of the
operations now being carried out on
the outskirts of the city. Before
oven theso flrst one hundred und seventy acres ure cleared a start will
havo boen made upon'another and
a larger tract up the hill, Just back
ot the city. Should these areas be
bought up at all readily, atter once
they hav* been prepared for the cultivator, then, indeed, the colonization of the islund by the small farmer may be said to bo in sight. It
will very largely depend upon the
terms of sale. As everybody hereabout knows, the soil, taking It
right through, Is unoxcelled in the
provinco, If in tho Dominion, and the
climate Is everything thnt people of
English blood can dosire. If, there
fore, the terms nro reasonable there
ls every reason to believe that the
experiments will be nn assured success, nnd the colonization of the Island as a conso piont development ol
the near future logically follows.
This Is the view taken by some of,
our larger contemporaries, and It
is even declared to bo the settled and
deliberate policy of tho railway company. Whether thut he so or not,
a fanciful or foolishly optimistic position to tako, Of course the realization of the scheme will take time,
but the great point Is thnt a start
has beon mado. How for It will go
only the future can toll, but at
least the chnnces nro good for the
eoheme being carried through to
complete fruition.
Locally, we have mason to congra.
tuhtte ourselves on our good future.

OTTAWA, June 8.-*Lost week the
House discussed the cold storage op-
oration of Sir Fred. Borden, and his
son-in-law, L. S, Macoun. This week
tho Public Accounts Committee looked Into the mutter of $74,8(12 puid
to this same son-in-law by Sir Fled-
erick Borden's department in nine
months for supplies to Ao ITmiuion

copper, bought at $880 por ton
The contract was given after offers
had been nskod from only three concerns. Two of these, Mr. Macoun,
and Mr.,0oglin,, tendered ,■ at ithe
samo prico, and a New York firm
put in a lower offor. Tho Now York
man required payment on dolivery cf
the goods, and the department rejected his offer, on tho ground, that
payment could not bo made until after the metal hnd been received and
tested. Of the two equal tonders,
Mr. Macoun's oas accepted. Thon a
queer thing happened. 'Against., the
protest of the arsenal superintendent
Mr. Macoun was paid practically tho
■hole price of his goods, not 'only
beforo testing, but bofore thoy wero
received. On ono order of $38,00(1,
a chequo fur $33,000 was issuod beforo the copper had beon dellvored at
Quebec. Mr. Jarvls, Secretary ofthe
Department, was shown the papers,
which proved that the contract -aid
not authorize this advance payment
which was evidently Contrary to tho
terms- imposed upon the lowest ton-
hirer. In unother case Mr. Macoun
got a contract, apparently without,
'ouipetition, for goods not made ln
Canada. Tills wus a $6,000 contract given for appliances sold by a
Rhode Island concern. IMr. Macoun

Witness know of cases of advances
being -made before the delivery ot
goods, but this occurred very seldom and only under special circumstances. He never heard of any official in the department relieving

Commander Spain gave an explanation of an alleged overcharge of between $800 or $900, alleged by Auditor General Fraser yesterday. During 1904-05 he had been continuously-away Irom Ottawa. When he
had returned he had lost his notes
and could not definitely make up

could, and attach affidavits stating
that the book was lost. This he
had done and the auditor's dopartmont had returned it on account ol

No Honing—
No Grinding
You know from daily experience, at home or in thc barber
shop, that the question is—
•i.Why doesn't-n razor hold
its edge uniformly from heel
to head without honing and
grinding?" Whether it is a
safety, with tho certain tax of
new blades, or the ordinary
open-bludcd razor does not
alter the question. You want
the comfort and satisfaction of
a clean, smooth shcive every
morning with thc confident
knowledge that your razor
will be ready for instant use
the next time needed. ',
The Carbo Magnetic rfl'oris
tho only razor uneondlllonm
ally guaranteed to do this.
Thirty years of study on the
razor situation has perfected
a new socrct process of
positively merges every particle of carbon (the life of steel)
Into the metal—giving a diamond-like hardness uniformly/
throughout the blade—something absolutely impossible

that tho diaphonu signal contracts

seemed a matter of grave importance. During the pust three or four
yoars, 8180,000 profits had gono
into tho pockets of the Canadian
Fog Signal Co. Tho manufacturer
might churge fifty per cent, us a reasonable profit, but allowing $400 us
cost of the apparatus, and S1Q0 for
royalties, tho cost would bo' 8500,
and the Government had paid 81,-
'the transactions between the Government and the Company showed
that whero 825,000 should have been
paid for signals, it had actually paid
Possibly tlio Government hnd been
working under a misconception as to
tho cost, but in any event un unusual profit had bcon made in the
transaction, and if moro than a reasonable charge, tho Government, undor tho patent law, had itself thc
right to manufacture.
