The  long drouth had interfered somewhat  with the development of vegetable?, dmd  the plebiscite and lack of sports prevent*  ed many from visiting. Nevertheless, in  many ways the show was a success.  The farmers and 'heir ��������� familes were  generally present from Comox Bay to  Black Creek, and Cumberland and  Union contributed quite a number of  visitors, but not nearly, so many as o������������  j A1'  1 v' ft  tomary.  .   In the yard there Snere horses, shetp  (some very good ones), swine, chickeof,  ���������'   * '1  ducks, geese, turkeys, and a fair lot,of  cattle, perhaps the best' seen here since  . j- - *   . /  first exhibition.  Once   inside  the [ exhibition building  there was much to attract "attention.  1 < ���������      , y - >  The di jplay of butter was the largest  and finest ever exhibited here, and that  is saying a good deal. Thc exhibit amply maintained the reputation of Comox  District as one of the very be*t dairy ace*  tions of the province and if there had'  been nothing else would have compease-  ted for the trouble of a,visit.  A cheese mariufactured.by Mr. A. Ur>  quhart was much and favorably commented on. It was a No; 1, and il is to be  hoped he may go into the business of  cheesemaking on an extensive scale.  1   The vegetables left' nothing to be de-''  1       "    " 1 *        ������ V     b>  sired in that  line, except quantity; still  there was sufficient for a good show.  One long table was  filled with fruit,  large, shapely, and of. fine. texture���������ap-  ������������������' /v ���������  pies, pears,, plums, etc      -,.:���������   . -   _  Bottled fruit and jams were' not extensive, but the exhibit was good... The disr  play of bottled fruit by M rs. Duncan  ******* was es  pecially worthy of mention.  Plants and flowers were, as usual,  attractive, and the large box of roses  exhibited by Mrs. Little were admired  not only for their beauty but more especially for their fragrance, which wf������  noticeable for quite a distance.  The splendid exhibit of bread, cakes,  tarts, etc., artistically arranged was tbe  subject of much praise and well deserved  it. . H. C. Lucas exhibitor.  Of ladies' work there was much quite-  creditable. Among , the useful was a  specimen of darning by Mrs. ��������� Berkeley,  It would hive been a feather tn the cap  of some single lady had she"* carried off*  prize for this kind of work.  Mrs. Ostrander, milliner of Cumberland, exhibited two pieces of embroidery  ���������not in competition���������which were greatly admired for skill in execution. The  designs were wrought out so as to be  quite effective.  And the fine arts! The specimens  exhibited were honored with; considerable attention, and richly merited  A fruit piece by Miss Sarah Lewis,  consisting of oranges, "lemons, arranged  on a 1 able with glass of lemonade standing near, and a second piece representing a work table. These were true to  nature, showing Miss Lewis possesses  not only much natural artistic ability but  has also been admirably trained. It is  needle-s-to say she took first prizes���������for  drawing and also for painting.  Mr.-Gardiner, first mate on the Cjrty of  Nanaimo, received first prize for a pastel  nnd was honored with second prize for  drawing. The drawing might be called  "A view of the beach near Beacon Hill n  Those who have been there would  instantly recognize that most pleasant  spot. His. second piece-Tpastel���������might  be denominated, "A view taken at Sunset."   Mr.   Gardiner  appears   to   be   a  natural born artist, as be has never been  under an instructor.

It is singular how he hears it with  such a racket going on around., A stream  that presently empties into the Susquehanna is near by. He leaves Avis for one  minute, and with great bounds and acute  pain reaches the edge of the water. What  to 'carry it in is the next "question, but  necessity is always the mother of invention;- -He wears a traveling cap, and it  has remained "on his head through all  this commotion. ^Snatching it off he fills  it with water from the stream, then  turns,and hobbles back to where ne left  Avis, suppressing his groans, for his  twisted limb "pains frightfully.'

Filled with new  fears, heturns^this way and that.'Others  lie upon the ground, groaning with pain,  biit who could' have taken Avis.

He is still raging around,   almost   out  of   his   mind,   with   pain    and   mental  agony, when a .hand   clutches   his arm.

It is Larry.  A rexnarkrthle aiirni the"  usuallv  5*  nattv  wlnh stronger conflicting emotions than  on the present occasion. Tempted to bid  her remain, he is also aware 'that his  future fortune depends upon her reaching  New York by noon on November fourth.  They have done well thus far, but all  will bo lost unless thisimattpr *, is attended to. So he groans and hides his face,  'and when he looks again Avis has'gone,  only Larry remaining at his side. Larry,  who endures* the pain of his broken arm  with the grim heroism of a martyr.  Meanwhile, since it is Avis who carries  the precious packet,it is eminently proper  that wo follow her in thc brave endeavor  she makes to mold circumstances.  The conductor leads her to where the  engine awaits them. Jn the gray "dawn  the scone is most distressing, of the  wreck presents nn aspect of ruin, though  in reality it is the freight that makes  most of the debris, thc cars of the lightning express being simply 'derailed,  blocking all tracks. ,   ;  No one has boon killed, as far as  known, but many arc injured. It ,is  strange that an engine is clear of the  wreck, but so it happens This 4s the locomotive about to be sent to,.Harrisburg  for assistance, running about on the time  of' the express.. ' ;  The conductor speaks a few 'Sentences  to those ou board tho huge engine,-and  tlie hearty,.ypice of the driver is heiird.  "Mako way here, boys, for Doctor  Jack's wife. It isn't a pleasant ride for ;\  lady,'but'since she must reach Harrisburg, we'll take, hor there."  Thus the works of Jack' Evans bear  ���������fruit."- He is known to this engineer by  reputation. .. What lie has clone .abroad'to  win his' wife has not been hidden under  a bushel.       . '.-   , -.',���������. -a    ''���������'������������������'  Avis is helped aboard, and given a seat  beside.the fireman, who has  one arm   in  a rude sling, as though he received������some  damage in the wreck.  They are off!  The great iron-engine rushes down the  track like'a monster of life. To Avis it is  a. new and decidedly novel sensation.  Under other circumstances she might experience something of alarm, but now as  they'seem to "fairly leap forward through  space, the only feeling she has is one of  exultation at the thought of annihilating  distance. Every mile which they, leave  behind brings her so much closer to New  York. --��������������������������������������������� ;���������  -She sits there, holding on firmly, for  the engine jumps, and rocks until.; it  seems to be almost on the point of turning over. That wild ride Avis Evans will  never forget so long as she lives  ner   neart up.-.. were the dangers of  her  ���������venturesome journey twice as numerous,  yet- wouldishe proceed. .< ;   . -���������    .  1   As tho morning draws, on  .apace, ,and  darkness disappears she can see" the wide  Susquehanna on hftr   left.    *,The   air ns  frosty,and yet in the engine cjjb, with the  windows' closed, it is very comfortable.  t "Avis'looks'around. Up to^thisttime.she  has   been , wholly   engrossed % with ( her  thought's,'while'her   gaze has������������������ been-* fas;"  teneel outside.   _,.,','     - .-        ** ,       ��������������� ' t  !    She discovers that she is not   the   only  passenger who   goes   to* Harrisburg ,by  special engine.   , Several men are aboard,  and* her eyes fall upon* one''after   another  iwith a'somewhat uneasy feeling. *      ���������  ���������' .The firs,t face,she sees is the red One of  ^Lord Rackettr who bows and   smiles, yet  .does not'come to speak to her.  |, Beside him is Colonel Garcia, the agent  of   the   syndicate, 'against'whbm "Doctor  Jack, has pitted himself.  Two others aro  .present, and   Avis conceives a   suspicion  'that, judging from their black looks and  'general,-appearance, they,.-, are ,,Chilians.  JThis sdrprises her, because Jack has  felt  j confident'that' all'their enemies,-save the"  " Briton and the South American ^colonel,  had been left far behind in the mad iace  /against time.       - .       1>fL  ��������� The more she watches' these men th'e  stronger becomes her belief that there  lhas been some-miscalculation made. She  sees Garcia, look at her closely, and  speak to one of these fnen who, in turn,  probably communicates the intelligence  to'his companion.      ,..,,< ^  . . Doctor .Tack;s .wife . is quick to recognize'tho gravityJof the situation.' She  carries on her person documents that -,it  would be worth a million dollars' to' the  syndicate these men represent, could they  1 secure them. That'is what Colonel Garcia, the unscrupulous Chilian, has - come  thousands of nifles to accomplish���������rthat  is why he is hero.;>  Four men against one frail woman. It  looks as though the packet might be in  greater danger now than ever before.  Doctor Jack's wife carries on her per  son. however, an antidote for this evil.  Sho is armed, and her husband has  taught her how-to use a revolver in an  emergency. Witli one hand she holds to  the rail. The other is lost amid the folds  of her" dress. *  Thus they plunge on toward Harrisburg. Every mile left behind lessens the  dahger she feels hovering over 'her. It  seems to_ nerve the men who plot against  her to desperation.  Their 'progress is such that in less than  an hour they will cross the long bridge  spanning the Susquehanna, and enter  the capisal. Whatever is to be done must  be accomplishec.' speedily.  Avis knows a crisis is near. She sees  one of the Chilians move up until he is  just behind the engineer. Tho second fellow is talking with the" fireman. Lord  Rackett holds back as though he would  have nothing to do with the matter, having washed his hands of it at the time of  the wreck. Hence,it devolves upon Garcia  to take the leading part.   '  The warning whistle sounds Yery often  as they sweep down the grade like a  whirlwind. Men rush to the doors of  cottages, nestled under -the hill sides, to  gaze in wonder at the remarkably swift  passage,of the .wild-cat engine. They do,  not understand what . it means, for, of  course' no news- of the wreck has as yet  been-sent along the line.  When the Chilian colonel 'L crosses to  where Avis sits,, she knows the time has  come- He will demand the packet, and  threaten, violence in case it is refused. As  he has apparently the power at hand to  carry out his words, it looks at though  triumph might at.last come to his * banner. . -  He counts without taking one tiling,  in to'reckoning)/and this the fact that tlie  woman he. intends to rgb is Doctor Jack's  wife. Long association with that daring  mail has given Avis some of his spirit.  Now Garcia is in front of her Upon  his face, can be seen a mocking smile,  and back of this the strong passions he  strives to control.  "Senora, you sec that fortune has  placed you in my hands. I control this  engine. You carry something I have  come from "Valparaiso to secure. I must  possess it. Avoid trouble, then, and hand  it over to me. I will give you my word  to leave you at oboe."

ELK HUNT���������TRIP NORTH.  Commander Calthorpe of H. M. S.  Imperieuse has just returned from a  pleasant hunting trip up north. They  took the torpedo boat as far as Campbell  river and near Willow Point, seeing one  of their party on shore, tried to gain his  attention by a series of whistles, and ran  as near to the beach ns possible. This  maneuver, of course, made every one on  shore imagine that the torpedo boat was  on a sand bank and calling out for assistance; but as a rule Her Majesty's  officers can navigate with ease and security.  Away shot the swift boat towards  Campbell river ! They landed there and  proceeded as far as Mr. Nunn's house���������  where they arrived just in the nich of  time; for a fire was burning in the woods,  and running over the dry grass dose to  the house and a pile of -hingles, which  would have  burned  like  tinder had the  1 1 -  fire reached them. The commander and  bis party set to with a will, but unfortunately having no buckets, only small tin  cans,.they had hard -vork to keep the  flames back. Indian "Captain John"  corning along with buckets helped considerably ..to lighten their labor. They  left all safe, but having been delayed so  long they thought it would save time and  labor to'take Captain "John" and his canoe up the liver.  On arriving two days after at the old  camping ground, where last spring they  had seen quite a herd of elk, there was  not the faintest sign oTrrr&������ft-rfi--iile neighborhood; all had vanished. So after a  day's reconnoitering they journeyed on  about another twenty-five miles, and five  days'from'starting, came qui'e unexpect-  ������        ,      ������������������ ���������  edly on the track of a fine bull elk.   All  were on the qui vive at once, and eagerly and silently fallowed it up, when,  crash ! some great body rushed through  the bushes, and then all was quiet. In  ten minutes from first seeing the track, a  bullet from the Commander's rifle struck  the elk in the back, and down he fell, his  splendid head laid low, amongst* the  moss and bracken. He seemed to have  been alone in his glory; for there were no  signs in the neighborhood of the rest of  the herd.  Then the work of skinning and packing to the camo began, and lastly the  long tramp back through the woods and  the paddling on a rough hewn raft over  the lakes; but at last chey reached Campbell river in safety.  The lovely "weather made the tour  more enjoyable than usual and the splendid head and. horns of the "lordly elk"  will be to the Commander a pleasing and  lasting memento of a fortnight spent in  the forest of British Columbia.    *    '  ���������    ,  SUNDAY SERVICES  TRINITY CHURCH.���������Services in  the evening.

Toronto; Sept. 30.���������The Mail and Empire says, at the close of a short editorial on  the subject, that the interesting feature of  the returns is.the attitude of the Province  ������>f Quebec. On the whole it seems p< obable  that over the whole country there will be a  small prohibition majority. A good many  people have imagined this would cau^e enactment of the law. This is a mistake.  A majority of a million would euact nothing. The plebiscite was really an order  upon the prohibitionists to show up or shut  up, and we think the government will quiet  them to a ''shut up."  SHOOTING PROHIBITED.  Whereas Sunday seems to be tlie day set  apart by certain parties for -in-oting and  respassiug; therefore we, the undersigned,  residents of Comox, hereby give notice that  all shooting on our- property on the Sabbath  day is strictly prohibited.
