Many Grand Forks People
Watched in Vain for
Astral Visitor
Wednesday was a day of disappointments to a host of people in
this city. The scientists had announced that on that day the luminous heavenly body known as Halley's comet, which is supposed to
consist of a nucleus and an elongated
gaseous tail, would strike the earth
and create a few "glory holes" in the
mineral zone of the Boundary coun
try. But the savants were wrong.
They usually are when they predict
disaster. The incident, however,
lias given that portion of the people
who formulate their opinions on
historic events after the curtain has
been rung down on the drama an
opportunity to once more bring out
their pet phrase, "I told you so."
The astral wanderer did not put
in an appearance, and the elaborate
preparations which had been made
for, his reception here were finally
labeled "love's labor lost."
The city council had appointed
a reception committee, the members
being instructed to extend tbe freedom of the Gateway City to his celestial highness. The chairman of
thn water and light committee had
been delegated to make a thorough
inspection of the lighting system
in vogue on the comet, and if found
feasible and less expensive than the
city's present method, to endeavor
to induce the "head" to leave a few
miles of its tail here for that purpose. It was thought that the
promise of construction work on the
North Fork road this summer would
have been (sufficient to anchor it to
Observation mountain. The city
electrician had heen instructed to turn
out all thc street lights at night in
in order to give people an unobstructed view ofthe itinerant.
The board of trade hatl met and
appointed itself a committee to interview   the   comet   on    publicity
had gained the impression that the
visitor was to boa permanent fixture
in the city, and their eagerness to
welcome and patronize a home institution faintly illustrates but two
of their manifold virtues.
The license commissioners held a
brief session on the lilth, and adopted a resolution ordering the comet to
screen its "head" light between 10
p.m. and G a.m. The chief of police
was instructed to enforce the resolution. That ollicer was jubilant because the wanderer did not put in
an appearance. But there are many
people in the city today who firmly
believe that the action of the board
caused the comet to seek more congenial companions.
The Moral Reform league alvo
passed a resolution, protesting vigorously against the inordinate vanity
displayed by the comet in towing a
tail of limitless length in its wake.
This tail, the ine-iibers of the league
thought, could be curtailed a few
million miles, thus avoiding the
necessity of the "head" working
seven days per week in order to keep
it from under the feet of passing
planets.
There were many more disappointed parties, including delegations from the Socialists, who wanted
to ascertain the number of Socialist
votes cast on the comet at the last
interplanetary election, and from
the Conservative association, who
were in search of anew naval policy,
but a sufficient number of cases
have lieen cited to show the wide-
spaead interest taken in an event
that is properly advertised.

All the members were present at
council meeting Monday night.
Besides the usual routine business,
two or three important matters came
up for consider ation. A number of
unimportant communications were
either ordered filed or refeaed to
committees, and accounts amounting to {1,281.71 were ordered paid.
The reports from the chairmen of
committees were few and brief. Tbe
estimates from the various depart
ments were subuiited to the council,
and on motion they were referred to
the finance committee.
The mayor advocated the purchase by the city of the old Yale
hotel site and adjoining property for
park purposes. A committee composed of Aid. Manly, Rutherford
and Smith was appointed to investigate the matter.
On the recommendation of Aid.
Rutherford, the board of works was
instructed to advertise the city team
for sale, and to purchase another
one not quite so far advanced in
years.
Aid. Henniger complained of
dandelions and noxious weeds growing unmolested on the public streets,
and the clerk was instructed to put
a man to work to annihilate them.
Jeff Davis addressed the council
itl reference to Ihe warehouse in the
rear of his store ou Second street.
He understood that a bylaw was to
be introduced having for its object
the destruction of the structure. He
was willing at present to cover the
warehouse with iron, aud to tear
down the old building near it.
Eventually, or whenever other
business blocks were! erected that
might be affected by the warehouse,
lie would lie willing to put up brick
or cement walls. Just now he could
not see his way clear to incur this
expense.
Aid. Wolfram was granted leave
to introduce a bylaw to demolish the
Davis warehouse, and on motion it!
passed its lirst reading. A motion
that the rules be suspended and the .
bylaw read a second lime   was   lost.

A protest against the new hose

Leo Mailer, on behalf of the brigade,
addressed the council,   ami   pointed
out the   defects,  from a fireman's
viewpoint,    of   the   wagon.    In his

M. A. .lull, provincial poultry expert, lectured in the city hall on
Tuesday night, under the auspices
of the Grand Forks Farmers' institute. The speaker was introduced by Scott Galloway, president
of the institute.
The speaker took for his subject the
commercial side of poultry raising.
He predicted tbat within a fijW years
this industry would be second in
importance in the province;
pointed out that 82,250,000 worth
of eggs and poultry were annually
imported into British Columbia;
expressed the opinion that the
Boundary was well adapted lor
poultry raising, and the industry
should be developed more extensive*
ly. Fruit growing and poultry rais
ing went well together, as thc return from the latter branch were almost immediate. The poultrymen
of British Columbia had an advantage over any other part of Canada
or the United States, inasmuch as
they as tbey received double the
piiee fur their product. The industry was advancing rapidly, and in a
few years it would become one of
province's most valuable assets.
Tbe lecture was illustrated with
lantern slides. Starting with the
egg, Mr. J ull showed by pictures its
character at the various stages of its
development toward becoming a
chick, and the effect of incubation
upon it. Then he followed the chick
after hatching, tu maturity, and il
lustrated all the essential conditions
in its life. Pictures of incubators,
brooders, hen houses and yards
were shown, and their points of difference and advantage explained.
The care of fowls was treated at
length. The questions-of foods and
feeding fowls fur market were also
entered upon. The principles of
breeding and the various strains
were fully explained.
At the close of bis lecture Mr.
Jull was tendered a hearty vote of
thanks.
After the meeting a number of
poultrymen met and organized a
local poultry association. Tbe
membership Ice was placed at 81

RELIEVES STOMACH MISERY ALMOST
IMMEDIATELY
If the food you ate at your last
meal did notdigest, hut laid for a long
time like lead on your stomach, then
you have indigestion and quick action
should be taken.
Of course there are many other
symptomsof indigestion, such as belching up of sour food, heartburn, dizziness, shortness of breath and foul
breath, and if you have any of them,
your stomach is out of order and
ihould be corrected.
Mi-o-na tablets have cured thousands of cases of indigestion and stomach trouble. If you have any stomach distress, Mio-na will relieve instantly.
But Mi-o-na unlike most so-called
dyspepsia remedies, does more than relieve: it permanently cures dyspepsia
or any stomach trouble by putting energy and strength into the walls of
the stomach, where thc gastric jaiees
are produced.
A large box of Mi-o-na tablets costs
but 50 cents at Woodland ,fc Co.'s,
and are guaranteed to cure or money
back. When others fail, Mi-o-na cures.
It is a producer of flesh when the
body is thin; it cleanses the stomach

Would You Provide

Consumptives ?
THEN IEND YOUR CONTMBUTIONI TO TM
MUSKOKA FREE HOSPITAL
FOR CONSUMPTIVES
A national institution that accepts
patients from all parts of Canada.
Here is one of hundreds of letters
being received daily :—
John D. McNuughton, New Lis-
keard. Ont.: A young man not belonging here, and suffering from,
it Is Believed, consumption, is
being kept by one of the hotels
here. He has no means and has
been refused admission to our
hospital. The conditions where
he is offer him no chance. Could
he be admitte/1 to your Freo Hospital for Ciyisumptives? If not,
could you ir/forni me where he can
be sent, and what steps are necessary to secure prompt admittance?
NOT A SINCLI PATIENT HAS EVER BEEN
REFUSED AOMISSION TO THE MUSKOKA
FREE HOSPITAL BECAUSE OF HIS OR HER
INABILITY TO PAY.
Since the hospital was opened in
April, 1902, one thousand five
hundred and twenty-four patients
have heen treated in this one institution, representing people from
every province in the Dominion.
For the week ending November
20th, 1009, one hundred and twenty-
five patients were in residence.
Ninety-six of these are not paying t
ooppir for their maintenance- absolutely
fr«s. The other twenty-nine paid
from $2.00 to $4.90 a week. No
one pays more than $1.90.
Suitable cases are admitted
promptly on completion of application papers.
A GRATEFUL PATIENT
Norah P. Canham : Enclosed you
will find receipt for my ticket from
Gravenhurst, hoping that you will
be able to oblige me with the fare.
I was at vour Sanatorium ten
months, and I was sent away from
there as an apparent cure. I am
now working in the city, and I am
feeling fine. I was most thankful
for the care I got from the doctors
»nd staff, and I must say that I
..pent the time of my life while I
was there.
The Muskoka Free Hospital for
Consumptives is dependent on the
good-will and gills of the Canadian
public. Money i.s urgently needed
at the present time lo make it
possible to care for the large and
increasing number of patients that
are entering the institution.
Will you help ?
Where greater urgency ?
Truly, Canada's greatest charity.

Over Man
Wuman's most glorious endowment is the power
to awaken and hold the pure und honest love ol a
worthy man. When she loses it and still loves on,
no one in the wide world can know the heart agony
she endures. The woman who suffers from weakness and derangement of her special womanly organism soon loses the power to sway the heart ol
a mun. Her general health suffers and she loses
her good looks, her attractiveness, her amiahility
and her power and prestige as n woman. Dr. R. V. Pierce, of Buffalo, N.Y., with
the assistance of his staff of able physicians, has prescribed for and cured many
thousands of women. He has devised a successful remedy ior woman's ailments. It is known us Dr. Pierce's Favorite Prescription. It is a positive
specific for the weaknesses and disorders peculiar to women. It purifies, regulates, strengthens and henls. Medicine dealers sell it. No knnest dealer will
