At  the time of the assault  thc kitchen door was shut and     the  door    leading to the store from the  bakehouse was partly open.' The,door  between   the kitchen    and the bakehouse was half open.   The side door  -    was not open.

He was  very- mad, and wanted  to see Smith  himself at once.   Smith did not'come  hack again after the assault. Neither  he nor his assistant returned  lo f.n-  ish  tlie painting job that afternoon.

She said, "Mr.  Docile told me to tell you that hc  would give you $100 for Uie balance  of your property and' finish the  houses.'' I said, "Mrs. Docile, you  can tell Charlie when he comes in  that he will have to come up $350  more before he gets it."

The  proposal to deposit; the money from  the customs collections in an American/ bank until a definite arrangement is completed is not satisfactory to the Belgian bondholders,  who demand the payment of $27,010  a month to them in accordance with  their contract with the Santo^Domin  [gian government.

While  The  Ledger will be published the same as it  now is at Ladysmith, it will contain  the same amount of live local news  of Duncans sind Cowichan district as  though     published  there.    Later  on,  some other arrangements are  in contemplation.       Meantime   the  Ledger,  which  already has  a fair circulation  throughout   Cowichan,   svill   endeavor  by its close attention to the news of  all points along the line, to make itself equally as  welcome in  Duncans  a.s it is in Ladysmith, and by having  additional assistance, as we have arranged for on our news staff, to make  The  Daily  Ledger a favorite  among  thc reading public along the line.   It  will ,be readily understood  that the  more  local  news The  Ledger has   of  A committee of the-Gun Club   intend arranging an. entertainment for  the purpose of purchasing a Leggette  trap,     says    the  Cumberland  News.  This will be worthy of the public patronage a? the club is capable of encouraging  and  doing  useiul work  in  our midst.   The majority of the ofiL-  'ceils .and members of the club are in  lavqr of the $2.00 a year gun.license  Everybody wno carries a gun can afford it, and all who enjoy the sport  protected   by  ihe  government  should  be willing to pay something towards  the  cost  of  protection.   In addition  to    the numerous   benefits  accruing  from this license, the small boy, also  will     be     protected. In   >   many,  the man **who cannot shoot straight  cases  experienced  hunters   have   been  the victims. of reckless shooters who  shoot    at every moving object they  see in the woods.

The officers of the club receive no other reward than the     ap-  proving  consciousness  of  laboring  in  a worthy  cause.     Therefore  we  submit the  Gun   Club  deserves acknowledgement  for   the good   it has  done  n the past and encouragement in its  efforts for the   future.

After a dark and rainy winter such  as   is      always   found  on the  Pacific  coast,  it seems like an awakening of  nature to have, the, skies cleared,  ti'.e  roads  and   walks dried off  shining 'and   the glad  by  the feathered tribe that spring is  , here.  From Laidysmilh to Sliawnigan  lake many good looking ranches are  now under cultivation and more acreage each, year being cleared up  soil is, perhaps as good as any  found anywhere in the world for most,  crops grown in a temperate zone. A  farm along the E. ���������& N. Railway represents a safe investment, it will  never he without a good value. The  spring time brings with it renewed  interest in a: farming community, especially is this the case- where /high  grade stock is being introduced arid  new farms are in process of clearing  up. The -price of farm lands along  the E. & N. already shows that such  larnis ' arc in demand. As 'time goes  on the excellent climate and pleasant  , surroundings'-will  continuously   add  to  the value of farm lands,  especially  is this the case with small  holdings near fishing resorts,  and along  the shores of  the numerous  lakes  ot  this part of Vancouver Island, where  Miose  who  possess  same  means   ni:i\  own country homes and small farms.  The spring  of 1905  is little different from other springs so far as the'  business outlook is concerned. Generally   speaking,   the  country   is   prosperous.   . Ladysmith   at   the   present  time is not in quite its usual ihoalthy  condition, but everybody is living  in  hopes of     seeing-times advance aiid  1he season of 1905-a prosperous  one-  along the Island Railway.     .,  present frame " of mind the simple  words illustrate most faithfully the  feeling of the local sports.  ���������'.'.,-, ���������   r���������O���������  "���������TENNIS.; ;��������� - ��������� '.  ..The newly organized tennis club,  in connection with-the Church of England, held a meeting last, evening at  the Rectory, when officers were elected.
