Hon. R. W. Bruhn At
Courtenay On Road Work
Menzies Bay Road to-Be Completed This Year and Work
to Commence at Once
The Hon. R. W. Bruhn, minister of
public works, addressed the people of
Courtenay on Wednesday night and
leave some very (food news to the
people of this district. The minister
said he had been over the Menzies
Bay road and fully realized its importance, with the result that he had
issued instructions for the road to be
completed this year and for the work
to start immediately. This newB was
received by cheers from the audience.
The extension of the Dove Creek
road toward the Forbidden Plateau
will also be completed.
In speaking of the road work in the
Province, Mr. Bruhn said the present
government had built 1100 miles of
new road and reconstructed 1300
miles of highway. There were many
links yet to be made before the full
value could be got out of the highways. The government had been accused of extravagance by the opposition but not one milo hnd been constructed that had not been asked for
by some responsible body.
Some people had gained the impression that Vancouver Island had
been neglected. On Vancouver Island 26 miles of mainroad had been
constructed, 63 miles reconstructed
and 477 miles maintained. Settlers
roads of 62 miles had been constructed, 78 reconstructed and 1600 miles
maintained. $413,000 had been expended on bituminous surfacing and
altogether, $2,600,000 had been expended on public works on Vancouver
Island since the conservative government and municipalities had spent
$518,000. He praised the work of
the officials of the board of works
and throught the public had received
full value for their money.
The meeting was held under thc
auspices of the Courtenay-Comox
Board of Trade and was addressed by
Dr. G. K. MacNaughton, Mr. T. Graham, who again emphasized the need
for assistance for the coal mining industry, which had decreased 40 per
cent In 20 years and was still decreasing at the rate of 10 per cent per
annum. Mr. Graham thanked the
board of trade for their support of
the resolution sent to the government
on the fuel oil problem and sincerely
hoped all would continue to support
Dr. MacNaughton congratulated
the board of trade on Uie part it had
taken in getting what now promised
them the completion of the Menzies
Bay road. He assured the minister of
public works that the Courtenay-Comox board of trade'always gave careful consideration before they mnde
requests on the government.
Other speakers included Messrs. P.
L. Anderton, W.-R. Mitchell, Arthur
Leighton, T. H. Mumford, R. J. Filberg and J. H. Macintyre.
Injun Joe!
If ever there was a deep-dyed vil-
lian to chill the marrows of boy readers of classic Action, Injun Joe Is
that villian.
In Mark Twain's immortal masterpiece of boyhood adventures, "Tom
Sawyer", Injun Joe is the half-breed
whom Tom and Huck Finn see in the
act of killing Dr. Robinson and later
in the treachery of blaming the crime
on Muff Porter. It is Injun Joe who
subsequently pursues Tom in the cave
because of the hoy's revelation of his
Paramount hns produced "Tom
Sawyer" faithfully as to action and
most of thu dialogue, and the Ilo-Ilo
Theatre presents this all-talking classic for three days commencing , May
the 25th. Jackie Coogan plays Tom,
Mitzi Green is Bdcky Thatcher, Junior Durkln is Huck, Clara Blandick is
Aunt Polly—and Chnrlcs Stevens, a
veteran In "menace" parts In thc sil-
ents and talkies, is "Injun Joe."
A special matinee will he run on
Monday, May 25th at 1:45 p.m.
A wire was received this morning
from Mr. A. W. Neill, M.P., for Co-
mox-Alherni stating that "Hon. Mr.
Duranteau, minister of marine, in debate this afternoon, assured me hc
had changed specifications of new
hydrographic survey boat to burn
conl instead of oil 'and expected to
let contract in a few days, and if so
would insert item in supplementary
estimates. See Hansard this date."
The wire is dated Ottawa, May the
Our readers wil lremcmber that on
April 24th, one month ago, we published the following with reference
to the same boat:
C. H. Dickie, M.P., writes that he
has been successful in having the
plans for the new hydrographic
steamer changed so that she will burn
coal instead of fuel oil, as had been
planned. Mr. Dickie also has hopes of
having something substantial done
for the conl industry, and is working
hard for a duty on fuel oil.
Twilight Baseball
League Opened
Cumberland, May 18.—Comox District League baseball series was officially opened on Sunday when the local
Eagles were at home on the Recreation
Grounds to the Royston Lumber Company's team. Mr. P. Murray, popular
president, acted as pitcher while Ray
Dawson, of Courtenay, was batter for
the opening ceremony.
A very large crowd turned out for
the game and Judging by the enthusiasm displayed, baseball seems destined
for a successful season. The Lumber
Company players proved too much for
the local nine, winning by a score of
10 to 0.
The Athletics and Happy Valley
met in a league encounter on the
Recreation Ground, Cumberland,
when nfter a ragged game, the former ran out easy winners by a score
of 16 runs to 6. Many errors were
in evidence, the game losing interest
for the fans through slack fielding.
More so was this the case with thc
Hnppy Valley boys who could do nothing right. Oh, well, it happens that
way sometimes, but the Valley boys
say that is nothing to worry about.
The next game will tell a different
story. ,

Quite a number of Interested spectators turned out at the Lewis Park
to see the games played at Courtenay,
both of which were on at the same
time on different parts of the field.
The Hotshots proved a stronger team
than the Langs and won easily with a
score of 10 to 2. In the girls' game,
P.E.P.'s vs. Langs, the play was more
even, ln fact, the Langs took the lead

Empire Day
All   in   Readiness   for   Parade   ind
Sports on Monday
Arrangements have now been completed for Cumberland's big celebration on Monday, with the parade
starting from the City Hall at 9 a.m.,
followed by the crowning of the
Queen of May on arrival at the Recreation Ground. After the crowning
ceremony, maypole dancing by Cumberland school children will be undertaken which will be followed by
exhibition of physical drills by Wr.
Jackson's pupils.
These are all preliminaries to the
big programme of sports, the first
event starting at 10:00 a.m. and continuing to 12 o'clock when a halt will
he called for one hour for lunch. Immediately after lunch, exhibition
dances by Miss Kay Moore's pupils
will be staged, following which competitions in dancing will be held including Highland fling, Irish jig.
Sword dance, Seann trews, Silver
and bronze medals will be given for
these dances, Lieut.-Col. C. W. Villiers very kindly donating ten medals
..for the contest. As the dancing will
take upwards of one hour, the management of the Ilo-Ilo will throw the
theatre open at 1:45 for a special
matinee at the usual prices. Many
wil Itake advantage of this as it will
be. a good place to rest after a strenuous morning. At 2 o'clock, the sports
will start again and continue until
4 o'clock when the final for the baseball competition will be held .This
baseball contest will close the activities for the day.
Football Game Sunday
As part of the Empire Day celebration a football game will be held
Sunday afternoon between Cumberlnnd Eagles and Powell River St. Andrews, commencing at 1:30 p.m. The
Powell River boys are said to be a
really fine aggregation and as Cumberland Eagles are the Provincial
junior champions a good game should
result. We are led to believe that the
St. Andrews' team will be accompanied by the Powell River pipe band,
which in itself wil lattract a large
number. The game will be of the reg-
ulntion 45 minutes each way and will
be a fast one from the first toot of
the whistle. Cumberland will be represented- by the fololwing: Walker;
Brown, Bickle; Tobacco, Conrod and
Weir; Howay, Gibson, Campbell, McFarlane and Bartholdi.
Cricket on Monday
The Cumberland cricketers will
stage their usual Empire Day game,
starting at 2 o'clock on the "Y"
grounds. The team has not yet been
chosen but will be picked from thc

J. Dando, Vaughan, Gough, Vernon-
Jones, Carney, Taylor, Boothman,

Steps To Be Taken
To Raise Money For
Light Co. Purchase
Special   Meeting  to  Be  Held   in   the
; Near Future
The regular monthly meeting of
the city council was "held in the council chambers on Monday night with
His Worship Mayor Maxwell presiding and Aldermen Ledingham, Williams, Henderson, Bannerman and
Symons present.
A communication from Mr. H. McDiarmid re appeal to Ottawa wns ordered laid on the table to come up
later for discussion.
A communication from the B.C.
Electric, water department re hydrant rents wns ordered received and
filed. The company was of the opinion that, compared with other places,
the rent charged fnr hydrants was
very low.
A request from Mrs. A. B. Clinton
was also received, asking for the alteration and repair of the roadway
into the back of her premises. The
request was referred to the chairman of the Board of Works.
Bills and accounts to an amount of
$554.73 were referred to the finance
committee for payment.
Reports of Committees
Alderman Henderson for the board
of works reported general cleaning
up around the city, collection of ashes
and refuse and the burning of the
city dump. Light, water and health
committees all reported satisfactory
progress. For the fire wardens, Alderman Ledingham reported a bush fire
of some proportions between No. 5
mine and the Bevan road, seriously
threatening, for a time, No. 5 Japanese Town. The fire department
laid one line of hose which was not
required and had men standing by.
A request from the fire department
for 200 feet of 2 % -inch hose was
acceded to.
Unemployed Relief Fund
Information was asked of the city
clerk as to whether any further advice had been received from the government with reference to the unemployed relief act. The clerk informed
the council that some time ago the
city had been advised that all monies
had been allocated but the request of
the City of Cumberland would be laid
before a special committee for consideration. Since then no word has
been received. It was suggested that
City Clerk Cope write and endeavor
to get some information.
City Versus Cumberland Electric
Thc city of Cumberland's appeal to
the Supreme Court of Canada in the
Cumberland Electric Lighting Co.
purchase case, has bcen dismissed according to word received from Mr.
H. McDiarmid, of Vancouver, the
city's legal adviser, the communication being read at the start of the
council meeting. Mayor Maxwell expressed thc opinion that as thc city
was pledged to the purchase of thc
Electric Light Co. assets, preliminary
steps should be taken to draw up a
money bylnw to raise the1 necessary
money. He tils osuggested that a special meeting of thc ratepayers be
held shortly ,to discuss the .situation
thoroughly. There was very little discussion in thc matter by tho Aldermen and it is quite possible that negotiations will be rushed through ns
quickly as arrangements can be
The appeal came before the Supreme Court nf Canada, at Ottawa, at
thc end of April and is the third that
the city has made from the ruling of
the arbitrators awarding $38,000,-
000 loss of profits to the company for
the unexpired portion of their franchise.

H. M. S. Dragon will visit Comox
Harbor from July 3 to July 18. One
other bqat from the same station will,
also visit the harbor but the name of
such boat could not be ascertained at
the time. Now that the date has been
officially announced arrangements
enn be made to entertain the boys in
blue as in former years. It is almost
certain that tho Cumberland cricketers will arrange one or two gnmes
while the boats nre here. Some arrangement will also be made for a
soccer game with the Cumberland
Eagles acting us hosts.
Cricketers Lose
Their First Game
Strong  Nanaimo  Eleven Opens  Season at "Y" Ground
The local cricketers lost their first
game of season on the "Y" ground
on Sunday last when the strong Nanaimo eleven were the visitors. The
breaks favored Nanaimo, who, winning the toss decided to bat first. The
wicket was dry at the start of the
game as Burns and Emslie faced the
bowling of Vernon-Jones and McLaughlin. Runs came slowly, the
bowlers both keeping a good length.
Emslie was soon dismissed when
Sharp and Burns came together and
a stand looked possible. Vernon-
Jones bowled Burns and Sharp was
caught out by C. Dando. Unsworth
and Paul, two strong batters made a
stand before unsworth fell to one of
Vernon-Jones' perfect length balls.
McLaughlin bowled Paul, after he
had scored 17, top scorer for his side.
As Cumberland went to bat, the
rain, which had been threatening,
commenced to fall, making the matting all wrinkled and the ball almost
unplayable. The whole side was dismissed for 24 runs and as it was cold
and damp a second turn at the wicket was foregone. Nanaimo have promised to give the local team two more
games this season so the locals will
have a chance to turn the tables.

Leader Of Opposition
Addresses Meeting Here
Defends Actions of the Former
Liberal Government in
Two-hour Speech
There was a very good attendance
at thc meeting.in thc Cumberland
Hall on Thursday night when the
Hon. T. D. Pattullo, leader of the opposition in the Provincial parliament
delivered an address of two hours'
Mayor Maxwell acted as chairman
and in a few brief words welcomed
to Cumberland, Mr. Pattullo. The
Mayor said he would not waste time
in making any speech but would call
on Mr. Pattullo to address them.
The leader of the opposition was
in fine form and with characteristic
vigor defended the former liberal administration nnd criticized the present conservative government, repeating assertions he had voiced at
the last session of thc legislature. Mr.
Pattullo said "during my twelve
years as minister of lands, as everyone knows, I travelled round this
province was a view of obtaining as
much knowledge as possible and finding out the requirements of the people. I felt 1 was responsible at thut
time and I did all I possibly could to
get as close to the people as possible.
Now, as leader of the opposition, the
people of this province having seen
fit to replace the liberal administration a decision which I can find no
fault, a similar responsibility rests
upon me,* and I am getting around
the Province as much as possible and
meeting as many of the people as I
can." Referring again to the last
election, when the liberals were defeated, Mr. Pattullo said, "personally
I was glad as I am hnving a lot more
fun out of it. Our conservative
friends at that time said a lot about
unemployment and if the people of
this Province wanted more prosperous times they had better put out the
nefarious liberal government. No
longer would there be unemployment
declared Dr. Tolmie and the then
Conservative leader, who is now the
Premier, read a telegram from a J.
J. Sparrow, of California, declaring
that if the Conservatives were returned to power in British Columbia,
American capital would flock to B.C.
Do you see any capital coming to B.C.
from that quarter, queried Mr. Pattullo, The Conservatives are leading
the people of British Columbia to believe that they are doing great things
for the Province. All they have done
is to participate in partizanship and
the imposition of the one per cent
Reforestation Plan
Mr. Pattullo derided the present
provincial efforts at reforestation on
the ground that such efforts would be
negligible In effect, nnd that the time
had not yet come when artificial replacement of the timber was required. Natural regeneration was much
better than artificial replacement he
averred. True, in some instances artificial replacement was needed but on
the lavish scale in winch thc present
administration was conducting the
scheme .with conditions as they are,
was not good business.
In referring to the P.G.E., Mr. Pattullo said the report of the discovery
of oil in that region was very misleading. If discoveries of value had
been made in the Pacific Great Eastern subsidy lands as a result of the
journey of the joint survey of the
Province and the two continental
railways, the public should lie informed and should have access to the reports, he stated. The survey had cost
"close to $500,000" he added, und
there was little reason for secrecy,
save, perhaps, in relation to any negotiations' looking to a sale of the
government-owned road. One of my
main objections to the present administration is their refusal to give information said Mr. Pattullo, who also
recited ibe case of the(correspondence which tbe Premier claimed bad
been sent to Mr. Thomas a member
of the British Parliament with reference to certain negotiations. And bus
anything come of those negotiation*
asked the leader of the opposition—
not a thing and I do not believe anything ever will. Why Mr. Thomas on
being questioned in the Imperial
parliament about the correspondence
said hc had never received it und
that was one month after the Premier
of this province had said he had sent
it. Personally I do not believe that the
special document was ever sent. We
should now be in a position to Judge
the character of the government we
hnve at Victoria. It is really u burlesque the way this government is
carrying on. It is not a government
it is a rabble. There is a lot of talk
nbout the Premier resigning or being
diseplaced. Did you ever see or hear
of any memher of the government
being mentioned as his successor'.'
No, you did not, nor have I. There U
not a leader amongst them. I will venture the remark that out o fthe eleven men we have in the house I can
pick out from those men, enough to
run the business of this country far
better than Is being done at present.
I have been charged with having ulterior motives, said Mr. Pattullo.
Well, if wanting to put this government out of business is an ulterior
motive, I am guilty, us I am out to
oust that government.
Turning to finances, Mr. Pattullo,
repeated that when the liberals were
in power, industry had thrived. Taxation had bee nreduced $-1,000,000 in
a period of three to four years, and
in other years, where taxation had
been increased, it bud heen borne by
those who could afford to pay, he
"Hon. J. W. Jones said we had deficits in British Columbia for the last
twenty years. He is a new financial
Moses, leading his flock out of the
wilderness; believe me he is leading
them further into the wilderness. We
only had a deficit on current account
in one year, und then it was only,
$20,000", thc speaker continued.
"Nominal deficits in other years
had been more than outbalanced by
large expenditures-made by the former government from revenue on capital account. The former government
had been criticized for showing $21,-
000,000 of annual expenditures and
spending $25,000,000, on Mr. Jones*
He would say of the present government that this had been increased
to $31,000,000 in 1980 and $28,000,-
000 in 1981, If $.11,000,000 was necessary last year, how could the
Province give increased services this
year for $8,000,000 less, Mr. Pattullo
asked. In addition to the current budget of $28,000,000, there would be
a deficit of $5,000,000 he predicted,
reiterating his charge thut the 1931
budget hud under-estimated expenditures and overestimated revenues.
The special revenue tax had become necessary, he charged, because
of the expenditures undertaken by
the present government, and not on
account of the burden of social legislation inherited from the ministry
of which he had been a member. The
Minister of Finance was losing his
perspective, Mr, Pattullo said.
(iovernment economists were all
wrong in their prediction as to the reaction from tbe special revenue tax,
continued Mr. Pattullo. Instead of
asking for less in realization of its
responsibilities, the public wns preparing to ask for more from the government, because it now contributed
more to the treasury, he believed.
Mr. Pattullo rehearsed the retirement of Mr. F. A. Pauline, former
agent general at London, England.
He did not approve of the withdrawal of Mr. Pauline, a man who wns in
excellent health. He hud been six
years on the job nnd was quite capable of many years of service. He
was withdrawn und placed on a pension of $350 per month for the rest
of his life. I would like to get a job
for six years then be placed on a
pension of that much per month,
wouldn't you, asked Mr. Pattullo.
Who did they send to London in Mr.
Pauline's place, why Mr. Burden, the
former minister, who was removed
for incompetency. His salary was increased and the way to get a job under the present government was to
be incompetent and the more incompetent the bigger the job and the
greater the salary.
He criticized tbe liquor board and
snid 32 more employees were on the
roll than under the previous administration—and they are doing less business. Instead of ono commissioner at
$12,000 they now have three at $10,-
000 each and paid the late commissioner $26,000 to release his contract.
Partisanship   bud   been   rampant
during the Conservative regime and
st illations had liccn created. I believe
in helping those who help us nnd
when the time comes will see that it
is done but will not go out of my way
to create situations.
Mr, 1'attullo defended the irrigation scheme of the former liberal ail-
ministration in the Interior of the
Province, especially the dam which
had been erected and was known as
the Pattullo dam. His conservative
friends hnd twisted the words around
and it wus now Dam Pattullo. If the
dam wns n failure he would take the
responsibility, but if it was a success
he did not want the present government to take the credit for it.
Whnt constructive measures hnve
this government undertaken? asked
Mr. Pattullo. None whatever. Mr.
Pearson, the member for Nanaimo
repeatedly draw to the attention of
the government the necessity for
dealing with unemployment, especially in the coal mining community
which be represented, The Minister
of Mines who was appointed to look
after the unemployed situation has
not heen aide to cope with it and the
Premier should have known what the
conditions were all over the country.
He has made enough trips back East
to have become conversant with the
conditions all over the country. He is

Come on folks, let's make it a festal day.
EMPIRE DAY will be celebrated in Cumberland
this year as usual. The celebration will start
with a parade, followed in turn by the beautiful and simple ceremony of crowning the Queen
of the May. when the specially trained school
children will trip the light fantastic round the
maypole, reminding one of the old, old English
custom, which usually took place round the village green. Here it will be held on a dusty field,
but that will not take away the enthusiasm of the
younger element. And whilst we think of it, would
it not be'a good plan for all concerns, using the
Recreation Ground to get together and see if the
field could nol be grassed by this time next year.
Not only would it be a welcome change for the
kiddies for their 24th of May celebration, but
every sporting organization in town could use the
ground with more pleasure than is being done at
the present time, lt has been talked of, but nothing
has been done. Here's hoping that by next year
we will have a field worthy of the city of Cumberland.
The races on Monday will lie keenly contested,
ending with a baseball game in the evening.
One thing one is sorry to see is the withdrawing of the Hags for the kiddies for the parade. It
lends a little color to what in former years has
been at the best a drab affair, The merchants and
PROSPERITY is up for election, running to
overthrow depression.
It's for the people to decide which will be
chosen. Everyman and every woman is privileged
to ballot—every day.
Government can't make prosperity—alone.
Hankers and other business leaders can't make
prosperity—alone. It's the people, united in opinion and purpose and courage, who determine prosperity. They can elect it—none other.
Ballots that will be validly counted for prosperity are of many kinds. Some one of them every
man and woman can cast. For example:
Help a deserving man or woman to get a little
paying work—or, better, a regular job.
Spend wisely and not too timidly, and anticipate
scheduled expenditures so far as practicable.
Turn the deaf ear to false, mischievous rumors;
and don't repeat them, if you do hear them.
Be willing to pay a fair price. Don't take advantage of the other man's necessity. Recognize that
he has as good claim to a fair profit as you,
Discourage calamity howlers.
Keep business moving evenly.
Pay your bills promptly as possible.
Savo, but save wisely, not in fright. Invest for
the profit that sound enterprise pays and for thc
added profit that will come after the hysteria of
pessimism has passed.

Leader Of
To the Holders of
A Statement by the Minister of Finance
IN THE dark days of the War, Canadians loaned to the
Government of the Dominion many hundred millions of
dollars to enable the operations of the Allies to be carried
to a successful conclusion.
When Canadians loaned their money to the Government, they
received bonds which were promises to repay them the sum
loaned with interest at the rate of 5% or 5' ir'a per annum, On
the lst of October next, $53,000,000 of these bonds become
due; on the lst of November, 1932, the maturity will be
$73,000,000; on the lst of November, 1933, $446,000,000;
and, in 1934, $511,000,000 must be provided for.
It would not be prudent, either in the interest of the security
holders or the country itself, to wait until these loans become
due before providing for their payment or conversion. Action
must be taken well in advance of the due dates to protect the
credit ofthe country. The Government believes this an opportune time to afford Canadians the opportunity to exchange the
bonds, which they own maturing in the next few years, for new
bonds of the Dominion of Canada carrying interest at the rate
of 4H% per annum, which is a very attractive return. Prior to
the maturity date of the present bonds, those who accept this
offer will, of course, continue to be paid interest at the rate as
provided by the bonds they exchange.
Canadians who have always shown confidence in their country
are earnestly invited to exchange the bonds they now own
for bonds of the new issue. By so doing, they will render
less difficult the task of providing for the future finances of the
country, will enhance its credit and will greatly assist the
Government in thc present period of worldwide readjustments.
No money will be asked for and no new bonds will be sold at
this time. It is proposed to limit the present conversioa to
$2 50,000,000, but the Government has the right at its discretion to increase the amount if Canadians indicate a general desire
to continue their investments in the securities of their Dominion.
The subscription books wiH  close on the  23rd of May.
I earnestly seek the active support of my fellow Canadians in
making this conversion, which is one of the largest financial
operations our country has undertaken in recent years, creditable alike to Canada and its citizens.
Minister of Finstict.

a success. In my short trip from Alberni today I can see where thousands
and thousands of dollars can be spent
on roadways. Are you willing to be
taxed for a roadway into Alaska for
the benefit of a few tourists? I would
rather see millions of dollars spent on
roadways for the people who are already here.
In speaking of exclusive franchises
on the roadways of Vancouver Island, Mr. Pattullo said he thought an
exclusive franchise should not have
been granted to the Vancouver Island
Coach Lines, controlled by the C.P.R.
The G.T.P. and C.N.R. were forced
on the people of Canada and he was
of the opinion that an equal chance
with the C.P.R. should have been
granted the national owned railway
to operate a bus line, if they so desired. It is not fair, said Mr. Pattullo.
If the C.N.R. wanted to run a bus
line on Vancouver Island they could
not do it.
Before concluding Mr. ..Pattullo
dealt briefly with public utilities,
water rights and radio-telephone service; social legislation, etc., stating
that he did not think his government
went too far in this respect. He made
a plea for the people of this province
to support the university—give your
boys and girls all the education you
I am not going to talk any more,
Mr. Chairman, he said, but I would
remind you that an appeal will be

fit when the time comes to make a
change, give us your support. Choose
some good outstanding man to represent you. I have iwery respect for Dr.
MacNaughton, he is a very estimable
gentleman, but he is responsible,
along with the other members of the
present government for the present
state of affairs.
I thank you for listening so attentively to me and hope I have not
wearied you.

Questions concerning health, addressed to the Canadian Medical -Association, 184 College St.,
Toronto, will be answered per-
There is, beyond question, one
food which is best for the baby, and
that is the natural food—breast milk.
It would appear that this fact is not
generally known is we are to judge
by the number of babies who, upon
the slightest excuse, or for no excuse
at all, are placed on artificial feeding
of one kind or another,
The natural food is best. It is suitable for the baby because it is made
for him. It is clean because there Is
no chance for it 'to become contaminated by handling. It is fresh and it
is also sterile, that is, there are no
germs, and consequently, no disease
germs in it. For all these reasons, it
is superior to artificial feeding.
The breast-fed baby i.s more likely
to avoid disease, to have strong bones
and teeth, to have firmer muscles,
The breast-fed baby is, in general, a
healthier and more sturdy baby than
is the baby who is artificially-fed.
Many infants have been brought
up successfully on artificial feedings,
but this does not alter the fact that,
comparing the artificially-fed baby
with the naturally-fed, those who
have been deprived of their natural
food do not thrive as well.
Another advantage of natural
feeding is that it makes for the development of the baby's jaws through
the act of nursing.
Natural feeding is much more simple and takes far less time than bottle feeding. The proper preparation
of artificial feedings requires considerable attention and takes time.
No mother should ever deprive her
child of his natural food just because
she thinks she cannot nurse the baby,
or because some one has told her
how well babies do on some artificial
The decision to wean the baby is a
very serious one to make, and it
should not be made except for some
good and sufficient reason. The
mother should talk the matter over
with her doctor and leave the decision to him, because it is, after all, a
medical problem. It is not right to
wenn the baby and then ask the doctor to prescribe artificial feedings.
The doctor should be consulted before weaning, not after.
The quality and  quantity of the
breast-milk can be improved by attention to health. Regular feedings
by the clock are desirable for both
the mother and the child.
Every child should be breast-fed,
and no mother should give up breastfeeding unless she is instructed to do
so by her doctor.

FOR  THE   BEST   IN  DRY     •
Discomfort in any part of the abdomen is apt to be blamed on the
stomach. Those who frequently suffer from such discomfort usually say
they have "stomach trouble."
When the stomach goes on the
rampage, most persons place the
blame on the last thing which they
have eaten, and make up their minds
that this or that food does not agree
with them.
Whether or not we enjoy health
does depend, to a considerable extent, upon the food we eat. We know
that in order to have health, we
should use a balanced diet, which includes milk and milk products, fresh
green vegetables and fruits,
We know also that wo should not
eat to excess? It is not to be expected
that the stomach can be abused by
the excessive or indiscriminate use
of foods or beverages without causing trouble. The abuse of any organ
of the body leads to the breaking-
down of that organ sooner or later.
The whole body suffers as the result
of such carelessness as trouble in one
part affects the whole.
However, pain and discomfort in
the abdomen nre not, by any means,
always traceable to the stomach or
to the food taken.
The upset stomach may be due to
worry, nervous strain or anxiety. The
business man who rushes through his
lunch, his mind occupied with office
worries, and who does not take time
to relax, will almost surely have his
stomach "go back on him".
Loss of appetite, nausea and vomiting are the symptoms which usher
in thc onset of the acute diseases. In
such cases, the stomach is affected
by diseases which are attacking the
body and the stomach as one part of
' e wholu body deflects these conditions. This is particularly noticeable
when it is some other abdominal organ, such as the nppendix or the gallbladder, which is involved.
The stomach may be upset as the
result of heart disease. In order to
do its work properly, the stomach requires an adequate supply of blood,
If this supply fails because of heart
disease, digestion is interfered with
but the cause, in such cases, is to be
found in thc heart, not in the stomach.
These conditions aro mentioned
because they indicate that while we
know that pain or discomfort in thc
abdomen means that there is something wrong somewhere, even if
there is nausea or vomiting it does
not necessarily imply that it is the
stomach which is primarily at fault.
It does mean that the real cnuse must
be found and treated if the condition
is to be corrected.

here by car from Kansas City, U.S.A.,
some 2500 miles, on their first visit to
British Columbia and Canada. It Is the
first meeting of the brothers for nearly
ten years. During their stay they have
travelled around, taking in the beautiful scenery in the vicinity of Cameron
Lake and Horne Lake. They have also
been out on the gulf fishing bluebacks,
■ which delighted them Immensely; in
this adventure they were quite for-

flock to this wonderful island, with its
enormous attractions and we are sure
