Everybody wricpiiiq,     .   M, L, MajAsrh.  The advisory board of the Victoria Agricultural Association,con-  sisting of forty members has been  elected. But among the list' we  fail to see a representative from  Comox District.  That an important district like  Comox should fail to be recognized by the Victoria association to  such an extent as not to have  a- representative on the  Yictoria board is in the opinion of  the Nkws a very serious mistake*  More especially that there are several districts on-the. Mainland and  many miles further away from  Victoria having representation.  Chilliwack has .five representatives  while Delta has none, neither has  Nanaimo���������the two latter on the  same footing as Comox, yet important districts.  It i������ not likely that there is any  one in this district looking for the  honor of being a member of the  board consequently none are disappointed But to receive the cooperation ot the people of this dis  ,trict_there_wonld-be-a-deeided���������ad--  vantage to the Yictoria association  in having a representative on the  board from Comox.  With a view of interesting Uo-  mdx farmers the association at New  Westminster havo two representatives. One of these gentlemen,  Mayor Willard, has also been elected a director (meeting with the  hearty support of intending exhibitors) for the ensiling year on  the Oomox Agricultural imd Ind  nut rial Ass.

Now the question which no  doubt the Coinox farmers will  wish-to have answered for them  is tlmt not being represented on  tho board it is ���������doubtful if tho Vb  toria association would care to  havo an exhibit from tho district.  Possibly it is an owsigt of those  at the an ii uu I liTi-uting.  'No doubt the is an advantage  in huldingiiiit some kind of induce  meut 10 thtt smaller associations to  liuvti thom nppoar at the two provincial I'lintix-H with an oxhibit���������  ropi'OHeiit.tiivo of the district from  which it ciiinos.

A resident of the valley called  at the office last Friday and in  conversation mentioned that the  C. P. R. surveyors were busily  engaged in the district, and had  reached the Burns' ranch. From  information received it appears  they are rechecking the land  grant survey taken over from the  E.* & N. and also taking the elevations, abviously with the vie\y  of locating the best route for the  raijway extension to Campbell  riyor. It appears they are following the stone ridge from Cum  berland to Courtenay and crossed  the river at the R<*e,s ranch, or to  give a more definite idea following in the tracks which the big  fire'made several years ago.  Last year the survey party under Mr. Brobeck surveyed from  No, 4 around the lake towards  Alberui, and the present survey  would appear to be a continuation towards Campbell river, This  may meau that the route of the  railway, when built will through  from Alberni iu preference to the  folhwing jiloug the east coast.  NEW   LOGGING RAILWAY.  Nanaimo, Nov, 28���������-There is un  usual activity in the direction of  of CoNox among companies owning timber limits there. The Chem  ain us Lumber Co. intend building  30 miles of railway to log their  extensive interests in that vicinity. The logs will be brought to  Comox Bay.  ' Mr. Bennett went > through tor-  day to look after a large boom of  logs that the firm is now bringing  down the Courtenay River,  from Englishman's river.  A Panther and two Deer.

H e was hunting across the Court  enay river from No. 7 mine when  coming to a swamp he noticed  two deer feeding 911 the short  grass and on closr inspection he  saw a large panther al'out thirty  yards fiom the deer creeping cun  niugly but wtth deadly swiftness  about the height of the grass and  with the prospect of a most excel  leut meal in sight. The two deer  unaware of the double danger a-  waitiug them kept quietly eating  Thomson was witnessing the  sight about forty yards away a-  fraid to move lest he should miss  some part of the grand manoeuvre of the forest scene, who n all  of a sudden that stealthy hunter  ceased moving forward and turning around his head looked straight at Thomson, as much as to  say, what! you alter them too.  Thmson saw it was up to do  something very quickly or his  sport wourd soon end with no  game and taking aim shot the  panther through the shoulder,  killing him immediately. With  two more shots the two deer were  his.  It is not recorded what he said  wheu he witnessed his handiwork. However he. decided to  take the panther home first. The  next dny he took the deer home.  Thomson so far "as we kuow is  now the king among hunters in  the district, Anyone with a bet  rer story and more game in the  same time please step forward.

Bruce Smith, inspector of prisons  and public charities, in his reports  just made. He says the sick poor  of Toronto should have better accommodation, than now being pro  vided. Regarding Western hospital Smith. says it is uot right  that in an institution having such  inadequate equipments that it  8hould.be drawing funds. Grace  hospital he says the situation * such  a noisy corner that any further expenditure upon it would be scarce  ly warrantable. Some old sectioim  at St. Michaels are not suitable for  the purposes used.  P, PHILLIPS HARBISON  Barrister and Solicitrr  and  Notary Public  Conveyancing  Cumberland    B.

���nanaing Down Advice.
Bat that was a long time ago, sweetheart, a long time ago, and it doesn't
Interest you much no doubt, because
your dear Utile head is so full of your
own happlnena that your daddy's bygones pass you by, like the summer
winds, unheard. Besides, tbnt wasn't
what I Intended to write to you about
when I sat down at this faraway desk.
There are a great many things I want
tb say to you. I've lenrned a heap, little girl, since I hud that tussle with
Johnson forty years ago. and maybe
eoine of the things I've learned may
help you to flud happiness when you
have crossed over the line that separates tho girl from the matron. May-
he It will and maybe it won't It ia
hard for youth to seo with the eyes of
age, ami all the wisdom of all the ages
\you't alter Uie fact that most of us
learn by hard exjicrlence tho lessons
others would have taught us. Nevertheless us old fellows will keep on
handing down advice to the eud of the
chapter, just hoping that perhaps a
little bf it will stick and do somo good.
Now, my dear, you aro going to get
married to  William  Jackson  Rollins
with nil the frills that I can afford to
throw around tlie ceremony.    That's
right.   That's what I like./ Then you
are going away on a bridal "tower,"
tis they used to say down where I was
raised, and afjer you've-ripped around
the country a few weeks and squandered more money than William eau make
again   ln   six
inonths you will
come back home
to   settle   down
and "live happy
-e-v-e-r���ra fte vA-*-
That I am pretty sure, ls as fnr |
'Into  the   futnrt*I
as   you've   got'
and I guess It's
far enough, but
I    wish    you'd
take a littlo time
from  laces  and
ruffles nnd such
entrancing    fixings and give a
. littlo   consideration,    you    and Drift down the -stream.
William together, to that business of
settling down.    Did you ever notice,,
whou I've taken you to seo a horse
rate, how much trouble and time aro!
taken to get the horses lined up for ni
right start? That's tho most Important |
part of the business, getting a right
start, and It's n gool denl moro important for young folks just starting;
In married llfo.
How to Be "Happy Ever After."
I want to seo you got a right stnrt,
littlo girl, ono thnt will Innd you and
Bill  flt  tho  pout ��aTo  w/i')-.\��r��.  am!
;<jua oetrer not have any misraiten
notions about that "happy ever after"
business. It's there, all right You
Just bet It is. I've had forty years
of It and I know I know; but it
floesn't come of itself, little glrl-doesn't
come just as a matter of course. Happiness ls a manufactured product and
every couple haw to make their own
stock. I want you to get that stuck
deep Into your little noggin the very
first thing. Happiness Isn't fouud; It's
made. Aud sometimes there's a whole
lot of toll and a whole lot of trouble
In tbe making, but as a rule the more
the toil and the more the trouble the
better and sweeter tbe product Hint's
another point that's worth remembering. You've got to get rid of a lot of
fool notions before you can get started
right It takes most people years to get
rid of them, but I'd like to have you go
Into this business with your eyes wide
open, with tbe full knowledge that you
are not going to drift down the stream
in an open boat with silken and perfumed sails and nothing to do but
watch the landscape. There's something to do, my dear, something for
you as well as for William. Married
life isn't a simple speed trial on a
straightaway course. It's a hurdle
race with handicaps, and you stand
a better chance in the running lf you
know what the weights are and something about the hurdles. So lf your
old daddy bothers you with Information about the track don't get out of
patience. He only wants to put you
'wise and save you as much of life's
worries and tears as possible. lie
can't tell you everything; he can't
know all that the future has In store'
for you, nor warn you against the
unknown, but what the years have
taught him ho wants to give to you.
and Just remember that he docs It not
because he Is just old and garrulous,
but because he loves you better than
anything else on earth except your
mother and wants above all things
to see you happy.
This Bridal Tour Business.
I don't take much stock in this bridal
tour business. I wouldn't advise you
to cut It oat It's the fashion, and
folks wIM Say mean things if you don't

don't overdo It; don't splurge too

trip. Don't try to -see how many different kinds of posters you can get ou

nice, quiet spot where you eau stay
