These are lovely to watch but  none so nice as the rajn that falls on the gardens and orchards along the backroads of the  Sec he It Peninsula.  On the North Road and along the Reid  < Road of Gibsons, past the hidden peeping gardens of Sechelt and West Sechelt to the won-  rou i grandeur of the Pender Harbour, the rain  seems to add life and sparkle to an already  lovely series of scenes. .,  The strawberries now in .bloom and the.  cherries just passing the flower stage, all take  a new sheen of life and vigour from the falling  rains. ���  From where the logger has wrought his  havoc with "cat" and gin pole to the *place  where the new farmer# is hacking his home  from the brush, undergrowth once crumpled,  for all the world like forlorn, hopeless, onetime friends,, takes on a new lease when the  rains fall, helping to raise their battered heads  to life.

For  ure, her crew boarded and  captured the "San Nicolas"  of 80 guns and immediately  afterwards, the "San Josef''  of 112.

THE LITTLE ADMIRAL  (Continued from page 2)  by enemy shot The Hull was  so bad ly d amaged that it had,  for some time, been kept from  falling apart by frapping, or  .wrapping cables tightly around  it. In one period of two years,  les a very few -days, Nelson  had, not once, put foot outside his ojd '/Agamemnlon'"'.  She was not at either battle,  but, in naval history will always be associated with  Nelson, hence it is more than  in order that the waters of  Agamemnon Channel wash the  shores of Nelson  Island. .  On the southern shore of  Nelson island - two outstanding points - CAPE COCK���  BURN and CAPE FEARNEY.  The former suggests Captain  George Cbckburni, who commanded the '' Miners'' at  Cape St. Vincent and had, previously Served under Nelson'  in the Mediterranean, once  rendering particularly valuable  service while in command of  the "Meleager", at a time  when Nelson captured six  French vessels and forced the  French to raise the siege of  Mantua. ���  On xlardy Island's western  shore, two points ' are noticeable. ALEXANDER POINT  and BALL POINT.'" The  "Alexander" was a 7,4 gun'  ship of the line, serving at the  Battle of the Nile and was  under command of Captain  Ball. Hence, the ship and her  master are both commemorated.  . Working along" the north ���  shore of Nelson Island, the  largest bay is VANGUARD  ���BAY. A .word ,or two. about  the "Vanguard". .She .was a  74 giin ship and carried Rear-  Admiral Sir Horatio Nelson  himself at the -Battle of the  Nile;"Needless to say , ,she saw  hot; and heavy action and gave  a good account of herself.  Across Jervis Inlet - CUL-  tODEN POINT' and, directly  inland, ftes MOUNT THOU-  BRIDGE. The two go together,  for the ^Culloden" a 74, was  under ^command of Captain  Thomas Troubridge was present at both St. Vincent and the  Nile. She had the honor of  leading the attack at Cape St.,  Vineent,^-culjting- the, Spanish  line inZtwo and; throwing the  enemy fleet into confusion. At  the Nile ��he was most unfortunate, running aground at  the commencement of action  and not being refloated until  all was over. Even so, she did  warn following ships off the  shoal and Nelson, in des>-  patcheSj gave 'her credit for  doing her share.  On    the    same    shore,    ST.  VINCENT  BAY.   That  name  needs no  further  elaboration.
