Columbia elimination series of tbe

tho winners of the Wnllace's-Lady-
smith game In the final of the elimination series, und if they win, Cumberland will be eligible to compete in the
final stages of the Connaught Cup
proper.
Nanaimo won the toss of the coin
and decided to defend the west goal,
with the advantage of the wind and
sun in their favor.
Notes nf the t.'ame.
James kicked off for Cumberland,
passing to Hitchens, and made for the
Nanaimo goal, only to be returned by
Dickinson. Robertson and O'Brien
got away on the right and tried
Walker with a high shot In the first
few minutes of the game. It was then
Cumberland's turn and Routledge was
called upon to clear his line on two
occasions by Pilling and Home. For
the next ten minutes Nanaimo pressed
but Walker, Strang and Campbell
were safe, especially Walker, who was
called upon to deal with two difficult
shots from Robertson nnd McGregor.
Tbe Cumberland boys got the ball out
of danger and then took the game in
hand and forced tbe Nanaimo backs
to give away several corners In succession. Although all tho kicks were
well taken by Bannerman and Home
the Cumberland forwards could not
connect, although Roberts made great
efforts with his head each time, only

FIRST AID SMOKER
The local branch of tbe St. John's
First Aid and Mine Rescue Association gave a smoker in the G.W.V.A.
hall last Saturday evening, which was
a very enjoyablo affair. Previous to
to the smoker commencing, the City
Band gave a few selections outside
the hall and later played several selections Inside.
Mr. Geo. O'Brien acted as chairman
In his usual able and genial manner.
Vocalists Included Messrs. Jack Williams, H. L. Bates, F. Bauer, R. Reid,
and a cornet solo by Mr.'Ed. Manning.
There was an abundance of eats,
drinks and smokes.
STRAWBERRY TEA
A very enjoyable strawberry tea
was hold by the Women's Auxiliary of
Holy Trinity Church on Wednesday
afternoon. Owing to the Inclemency
of the weather thc purty was held ln
the church hall. Rain poured down
In torrents In the earlier portion of
the day, which somewhat Interfered
with tho attendance.
WHIST  DRIVE AND
DANCE IN G.W.V.A. HALL
A whist drive and dance will be
held by the members of the G. W. V. A.

Cumberland Bars
Are Closed Tight
Only Thing Obtainable in Liquor
Line With a Real Kick is
The $5.00 Permit.
Legally. Old Man Prohibition passed
in his cheeks at midnight Tuesday,
when all the bars, closed their doors
and the reign of tlie Moderation Act
began. We say legally, because as a
matter of faot this district at present
Is what the most ardent of Prohibitionists would call splendidly "bone
dry!" The only thing that can be obtained with a kick In It is a $5 permit!
A permit to buy but no place to bu>
at. And no less than three of these
permits have already been sold nt the
Court House!
For the city that gave the largest
percentage vote' against Prohibition
tills is some record.
No one in this district seems to have
any authority to supply those desiring
liquor. Mr. Menzies informed us yesterday that it is the intention of the
Liquor Control Board to open n store
at Courtenay In the near future, but
at present no store has been located.
Beer may be sold from the local brewery when the ollicials get around to
tlie requirements of this district.
The store at Courtenay will be found
totally inadequate to meet the needs
of the large number of residents in
this widely-scattered district, and undoubtedly more stores will have to be
opened up. Mr. Menzies advocated
stores in seven locations in the Comox
electoral district, one at Cumberland,
at Union Bay, Courtenay, Campbell
River, and at points further north.
The probable facts of the case arc
that tho Liquor Hoard has not completed its preparations for supplying
liquor, except in the larger cities, and
It may bo some time before liquor will
be available here, unless tho Board
installs some temporary arrangement
iu the meantime.
Open-Air Concert

Commencing at Eight
The Cumberland City Band will give

JUVENILE SURPRISE PARTY

honor at a surprise party Thursday

young friends paid a surprise visit to
her home. A jolly time wus spent in
games by the young folk; refreshments were afterwards partaken of.

Lillian McLennan were In charge of

FISHERMAN DIVED
INTO RIVER WHEN BIG
BEAR APPEARED
On Friday evening Mr. Alex. Baird
("Harry Lauder") and .Mr. Wm.
Douglas were enjoying a quiet fishing
outing on the bunks of the Tsoluiu
River, a couple of miles above Sandwick.
Tho peaceful stlllnes of the evening
was broken by n sound lu the shrubs
at their rear, and ou looking to see
the cause the anglers were surprised
to see a big black bear looking at
them—In fact, so surprised wus tlie
former gentleman that ho Immediately
jumped head first Into the river and
made haste for tho other side.
Feeling somewhat safer on the
other side, and bis excitement no
doubt considerably abated by his dip
in the cold water, Mr. Baird offered lo
make a bargain with ills partner. He
said If Mr. Douglas would kill tho
unlmal he would share It 50-50 wilh
him. However, this generous offer
could not be taken advantage of as
the bear, probably as surprised as tlie
fishermen, beat a hasty retreat.

Monday that Joseph Short, who appeared before Magistrate Baird last
week on two charges of housebreaking and was committed for trial on
both charges, lind been tried in N'anaimo and let off with the comparatively
light sentence of two mouths. •
The decision came as a complete
surprise to those familiar with the
case and the career of (he man during
the past few months. It is difficult to
understand on wlftit grounds the judge
look such a leuienl view of the crimes.

a strong and well-balanced organisation, und they are expected to give tho
Scots the hardest game of their tour.
The game is scheduled to commence
;it Nanaimo at li o'clock in the evening.
Five of the Cumberland United are

nalallation of a splendid lighting
lyslom in Iheir parlors. Tliis includes
two of ilie very latesl and uio.it scientific llghi fixtures invented, known as
tin: "Iwmlioe Ace" lights. These fixtures ure of solid glass aud the light
from them is splendidly diffused all
over the room, with a total absence of
glare.
The lights were supplied by the
Cumberland Electric Lighl Co. and
install.*! by Mr. J. Shortt. the electrician.
Another improvement worthy of

No Excursion To
Nanaimo Monday
E. & N. Railway Co. Will Not
Hun Return Train Unless
Guaranteed $250.
The E. ti N. Railway Co. nave disappointed football officials and the
Bporting publlc generally in tliuir refusal to run an excursion to Nanaimo
aud return ou Monday next, on the
occasion of the football game between
tin- Scottish team and thc Upper Island All-Slur team.
In their reply to the Upper Island
Football Association -concerning an
excursion train—which would only
mean the running of a return train at
night—the 15. k N. Ry. Co. say they
can only do.so in consideration of a
guarantee of $261.21), which would call
for a minimum ot* aboul I'M return
tlckols at RS5, from Courtenay to
Nanaimo!
Even if thoy had the guarantee tlie
company would not give any reduced
rale, as is usual on occasions of this
kind, and which action would have
been quickly taken by a more progressive company..
Tlie action of the company in this
regard is worthy of the strongest condemnation, it shows the lack of busl-
nes uhallty and willingness to serve
the public whom It has been chartered
to cater to.
The result will be that many people
who have been looking forward with
keen anticipation to seeing this game
will he unable to do so, as It will now
take two day's to make Ihe trip hy
train. Mad the company taken the
matter in their handy and ran an excursion lo suit the public (hey would
have been well repaid. As It Is tbey
have made more enemies.
Tho Football Association does not
feel disposed to take on the guarantee,
particularly as tbe company also requires a similar guaranlc to run a
train south to Duncan.

Plttl'ES OF MEAT
Dear Sir-
In connection with the list of meat
prices published ln your last Issue,
tho question of different grades ot
meat appears to bo overlooked. I wish
to state that If I could dispose of the

Idast 15 cents lower than the prices
puDiti)hed. But any experience has ■
neen that such meat would not sell,
as tho majority of people hero want
good meal. Wholesale prices aro

Sale of Lands Would Bring ii
$2,500,000—Would Sell Bonds
For Million in Vancouver
VICTORIA—While no ilelinite olli
cial announcement is available of tlu
government's proposed plans witli re
gard to the early construction of tin
University of Britisli Columbia a
Point Grey, it is learned from reliabl
sources close to the government tha
the matter ls receiving considerabli
attention. There lias been no differ
ence of opinion between the adminis
tration and those urging early eon
structlon upon the-question of university needs, and Ihe only harrier ha:
been Ihe matter of nuance.
It is expected thai the people ol
Vancouver will lie asked to care foi
Ibe flotation of a bond issue of a million or a million and a quarter dollars
which amount would carry oul (In
initial work as advocated by (he
Kiwanis Club and thoso associated
with them in (lie "University Drive."
Tlie government would then guarantee the bonds ami relive thom with
tlie proceeds from Ibe sale of its property at Point, Grey, wliieh should
have a high value In the real eslat<
market and which will probably be
plotted by an expert in the near future.
Property Worth $15,000,000.
It would not he tho intention to dispose of the entire 3000 acres at present, nor perhaps for several years, bul
a minimum value of $6000 per acre ia
placed upon this property, which
means a total valuation of $15,000,000.
It is figured tbat halt this amount
would be required to lay out the property, instal a waterworks system,
electric light, sewers and construe!
roads and sidewalks, together with
die provision of transportation facilities.
One-sixth of Ihe property would
be disposed of first, or $2,600,000 worth
of plots. Half of the amount realized
being expended for Improvements,
there would bo $1,260,000 left for the
university, which amount would care
for the lirst units of construction, as
planned by tlie Kiwanis Club. These
plans are said to lind favor wilh the
minister of education, Hon. J. 1). Mac-
Loan.
ANOTHER AIRPLANE
FOR ISLAND SERVICE
Residents of (his district may soon
see an airplane Hying above thom, as
was the case last summer. Norman
A. Goddard and associates aro now
applying for incorporation under tho
name of tho Vancouver Island Aeriai
Transportation Company, and expect
to get their first machine into operation following inspection by (ho government aeronautical authorities,
which is expected to take place end oi
this week.
The machine lias boon in course of
construction for some months now
and will ho finished completely within
tho present week. It is a Curtiss
J N 4 type of aircraft, fitted, however
with pontoons instead of the ordinary
wheeled undercarriage, thus making
It a seaplane, for operation to anil
from water. It is equipped with an
8(1 horse powered Curtiss engine and
capable of making GO to 05 miles an
hour, with a cruising radius of nearly
three hours, or something loss than
200 miles. Extra (auks may bo installed, giving it a greater radius of
continuous flight than this ligure.
Itcudj to Start Next Week.
If tlie government inspection and
registration are effected this week Ilio
new machine will commence active
flying next week.
It will ply from Victoria and along
tlie west and oast coasls of the island
as far north as Comox, anil will lind
Its main work In tbo carrying of pas-
sengors and limited frloght to inland
waters of the Island   can *y plants
prospectlon trips and all classes ol
work where remoteness and difficulty
nf access make thc aircraft desirable
for rapid and convenient tran uportn-
(ion. Seattle and Vancouver have had
commercial aircraft transportation on
a limited fooling for some mouths now
but the establishment of the now
Aerial Transport Company will Tie (in
lirst to be operated on Ibis Island since
last Kali.

WHAT A CENT WILL
DO ELECTRICALLY
An electrical export, figuring the
cost of electricity at 10 cents per killo-
wait hour, says that one cent's worth
will:
Operate a 6-pound ilat iron for 15
minutes.
Drive   an   electric  vacuum   cleaner
long enough to clean 450 square feet
of carpet.
1  Lift mo gallons of water 100 feet,
Hun a 12-inch fan for two hours.
Keep a heating pad hot for two
hours.
Do a machine full of washing.
. Shell S bushels of corn.
Thresh one bushel of barley.
Separate GO gallons of milk.
(burn ',V., pounds of butter.
Groom two horses.
Stuff 200 pounds of sausage.
There are very few places where n
cent will do as much work as it will
in the field of electrical service, and
it might be mentioned that, altough
the cost of electricity for lighting purposes is 11 cents in Cumberland, the
cost of electricity under the "power"
rate is only five cents an hour, as
against ten cents ns quoted in the
table.
I1IG HERRING CATCHES
DUMPED INTO SEA
ON THE WEST COAST
The prolific natre of the herring run
on tbe west coast of Vancouver Island
was interesting matter of testimony
in the Admiralty Court in Victoria on
Saturday, when the action for wages
and damages of the master and crew
of tho purse seiner lianificld against
die Bamfleld Fisheries Company came
up for trial before Mr. Justice Martin,
ludge la Admiralty.
Ira C. Epperson, master of tbe boat,
testified tbat as much as 150 tons of
herring had been taken in one haul
a' (lie seine aboard (ho craft. Part of
lie case ot the plaintiffs was that, ow
Ing to (lie failure of tlie defendant
company to supply scows to receive
tho herring, the fishing crew Iiad been
ibliged to lot go one end of the net,
on several occasions, and dump half
lie catch inlo tho sea.
The judge gave Judgment for the
plaintiffs in tho sum of $4,005, of
which $1890 was for damages on account of the loss of 1130 tons of lish
which it was held the plaintiffs could
have caught and delivered if they had
iiad the opportunity. Tho court or-
lered tliat tho Bamfleld should be sold
by the sheriff to satisfy the judgment.

Second Annual Picnic

Visiting Brethren and Sister Rebekahs will meet at the
Fratenity Hall at 9 a.m.
The sea is responsible for many
mysteries, but no mystery ot the «ea
ever caused ao much wonder, discussion and argument as the case of the
Marie Celeste, which has defied solution for nearly fifty years.
The Marie Celeste was found in the
Atlantic In 1S72, with scarcely a rope,
spar or sail out of place, with no boat
missing) and yet abandoned by the
captain, his crew of ten, and his wife
md child, of none of whom any trace
could be found.
Today we are no nearer the solution
of the mystery, unless we accept an
extraordinary story told by one Abel
Fosdyk, who left a diary in wliieh he
stated that lie was the sole survivor.
A small brig of 500 tons, the Marie
Celeste left New York lu (he autumn
of 1872, bound for Genoa. Then came
this terse message from the United
States Consul at Gibraltar-oil January
2, 1873:
"Tlie American brig .Marie Celeste,
of New York, was brought into tliis
port by the British barque Hei Gratia.
"Marie Celecte picked up on high seas
on December 5, abandoned. Brig in
perfect condition, but was taken possession of by Admiralty Court as a
derelict.   Fate of crew unknown."
Captain Boyce of the Del Gratia hail
an amazing story to tell. At noon on
December 5 he came in sight ofc.tlie
Marie Celeste. To his amazement, as
tbey approached, they could not see a
soul on board. A boat was lowered
and the captain and mate boarded the
brig.
Not a sound greeted them. The uncanny silence was awesome. The
brig seemed a floating graveyard, a
ghost ship, the kind of phantom craft
they had read about Not a human
being, dead or alive, could they find.
Nothing was wanting that would be
needed by such a vessel, except the
captain and the crew. There had obviously been no mutiny, for there were
no signs of a struggle; nor was it
piracy, as tbe money-box had not been
disturbed and tho valuable cargo was
untouched
Startling Disclosures.
-A thorough search revealed some
startling disclosures. In the cabin a
sewing-machine -was found with a
thimble lying on its side on a comer
of the machine, which prorcd that
there could have been no recent storm.
The article tlie woman had been sewing appeared to be a child's pinafore.
The woman had stopped sewing in thc
middle of a sleeve.
The appearance of the table showed
that four persons Iiad risen from a
half-eaten meal to leave the cabin for
ever. The child had almost finished
her porridge. In the mate's cabin
wore found two watches on the table.
In tiie forecastle, too, pans on the
stove contained vi breakfast ready
cooked, showing that the sailors had
been about to gather for thc morning
meal when they had gone over the
side instead.
Representatives of the United Stales
In all parts of the world were Instructed to watcli for the missing
crew, but not a single vessel reported
having picked up tho Mario Celeste's
Ill-fated thirteen. What had happened
to them? Many theories wore advanced, but it was not until 11113 thai
a clue to the mystery was discovered.
Having read tho story of the niys-
stery In The Strand Magazine, Mr. A.
Howard Llnl'ord. headmaster of Peterborough Lodge, Hampslead'S/ largest
preparatory scliool—recalled the fact
that an old servant, Abel Fosdyk. had.
on his deathbed, committeed to his
charge a quantity of papers, amongst
which he had said would be found the
story of the Marie Celeste.
An investigation of Fosdyk's
papers and diary showed that Ihe facts
he gave coincided with the ollicial
ones, some of wblch had not up to
then not been made public.
Fosdyk related how he hail shipped
on liUnrd the Marie Celeste, Intending
that it should be his last voyage, For
a few days everything went well, Then
terrible storms were encountered. Tbo
captain did not spare himself, and
seemed to be constantly on deck. Ills
wife and the mtae implored liim to
take more rest, but he would nol
listen to them.
Is This the Solution!
The strain began to affect his
nerves, and to add to bis troubles his
wife fell ill and became a shadow of
ber former self. The climax was
reached when the little girl, who was
about seven years of age, walked along
the bowsplt one day without holding
on to anything, and was ln peril of
falling into the sea.
Luckily. Fosdyk was able to grasp
her In the nick of time. The incident
led to a barricade and small platform
being erected, on which It would be
quite safe for the little one to sit in
fine weather.
Constant worry seemed to affect the
captain's mind. To make matters
worse he sought a quarrel with the
mate, accusing him of cowardice for
not saving a comrade who had fallen
into the sea.
The mate explained that he was
unable to swim in his clothes, whereupon the captain, in a fit of temper,
insisted on swimming round the ship
fully clothed. His wife tried to dissuade him, but he was obstinate, and
two of tiie crew offered to swim round
with him. The three dropped into the
water and rounded the stern, the remainder of tlie crew, inclding the captain's wife and daughter, crowding to
the child's quarter-deck in the bows.
The platform tipped up, tore away
from its fastenings and precipitated
them all into tlie water. When Fosdyk came to the surface, he managed
lo struggle on to Ihe broken platform.
He could see no signs of the others.
They had beeu drowned or devoured
by the sharks. To Ills honor lie
found il impossible to get on board Ibe
brig again, for no rope or chain hung
down.   Ultlmatoly be was rescued.
Abel l'*osilyk's amazing story seems
In provide Uie most probable solution
of the mystery.
MACKEREL ALWAYS
SWIM LEFT TO RKiHT
BRIGHTON-, Bug.- Tho question
why Uie mackerel in the aquarium
always swim from IcU to right and
never vary the direction of their endless journey has puzzled many, and
even when Un* question was recently
asked at a meeting of tbe Sussex Sea
Fisheries committee, ,uo one was able
lo supply tbe information. At a later
meeting of the committee tlie clerk
offered a solution of the question.
He said he had received a letter
from Mrs. Gilbert, of Greencnslle, Pa„
who said she had read an article in
an American paper about this mystery. She was of the opinion that the
reason for the one-way swimming of
the mackerel was that tbey swam in
harmony with nature, in other words
with the motion of the earth.

VACATION AND MOTHER
Juno—montli ot brides and old swimming holes and
vacations. Not one of us is there who is not dreaming ot
trout streams or sea sands or mountain hikes in the freedom of God's great nerve-restoring out-of-doors.
But our dreams are selfish—most of them, anyway. They
are of the individual pleasure we shall gain in our brief
week or two of freedom.
This is just u reminder to hundreds of boys and girls
—boys and girls still, though they be 40—that there is an
old mother somewhere back East or out yonder In tin
country, who you ought to consider before you make Una
nlans for your vacation, remarks the Kitsilano Times.
Maybe you haven't seen mother for years. Possibly you
haven't written her for weeks. And if you should surprise
her this year hy spending a week at home, you would can*)
joy to an earth-born angel who hasn't much longer hen
aud loves you best of everything in the world.
Your little old hod in your little old room is waiting foi
you if you go home this year. There will be wheat cakes
and sausage—your favorite dish—for breakfast every
morning, and shortcake for dinner, and hot biscuits at
night that only one person in the world can make.
Best of all, there will be mother with the light of heaven
in her eyes—a light that glows only when you are there.
Think ot mother when you plan that vacation!
The unemployment committee, composed of*, members of
the G.W.V.A. Executive and the Employers' Association in
Vancouver, is urging tlie public to purchase Made-in-B.C
goods to relieve distress among the unemployed. The com-
mittee has had several meetings, and each time It has been,
emphasized that if the public will buy home grown and
home-made articles the situation will readily Improve
Surely citizens do not want much enlightening to see the
wisdom of such a policy.
A Toronto professor says he has a fluid that will make
a man tell all his secrets. So had we—a couple of years
ago.
A jeweler in Grand Forks, B.C., advertises: "Mall your
watch for repairs and I will mail it back." That ought to
keep it going for a while.
If the people of this province were to give as much
preference to the buying of, say, Washington coal as many
ot the people of Cumberland do to the purchasing of
imported goods, mostly from the States, there would
be much unemployment and distress in our midst. Just
think a little and you will purchase B. C. goods In preference to imported stuff, thus keeping the money circulating
in our own towns and province.
An American professor states that he has conclusive
proof that the Garden of Eden was situated In Ohio. The
next thing we will hear from that Country is that Great
Britain was discovered by a native of the United States,
says the Paris Mating
In Europe there is a demand for the substitution of
metal money for much of the paper that is in circulation,
one argument being that besides having a commodity value
such money is more sanitary than bank-notes. Three
notes recently examined in a scientific laboratory carried
respectively 230,900,000, G9,4S0,000, and 90,8S0,000 germs
of tuberculosis and other diseases.
Regulations making it compulsory to grade and pack
pickled fish, use prescribed containers, etc., have just been
Issued by the Department of Marine and Fisheries, Ottawa.
Now the police want to know if the department means just
fish, or poor fish.
Now comes the time of the year when the careless fisher-
man or camper can do damage that cannot be undone In
a century. It takes so little to start fires, and once started
they must burn themselves out. A carelessly smothered
camp fire, a match thrown away still alight, even the contents of a smouldering pipe, a cigar or cigarette stub dropping in a handful of dead leaves or dry moss and a whole
forest may go up in flames. It is an easy matter to be
careful. Anything but care where great natural wealth
and human lives are at stake is inexcusable.
SUGGESTED COMMEMORATION OF MAGNA
CHARTA DAY, JUNE 15
In an endeavor to stimulate interest throughout thu
English-speaking world in the commemoration ot Magna
Charta Day, June 15. Mr. J. Vi. Hamilton, ot 147 Kent St.
St. Paul, Minn., U.S.A., has been sending out booklets and
circulars to the Seven Nations, embracing the United
States, Great Britain and Ireland, Newfoundland, Canada.
South Africa. Australia and New Zealand. Part of the
splendid appeal made by this gentleman for the commemoration of Magna Charta Day, which he refers to a-.
"the great foundation ot our liberties," is as follows:
It is hoped that the press will refer to what the day
stands for and the benefits wliieh an annual commemoration will bring into the lives of tlie people in tho Seven
Nations; in this way supporting the simple services which
will be held on the third Sunday in June by the churches
and Sunday Schools in the Seven Nations.
Anglo-American unity is tlie greatest single peace facto:*
In the world today. Besides it all oilier issues pale. Without it humanity is lost.
The finest service the people of the two nations can
render the world at large at this hour, is to make themselves better understood by each other.
Those who help forward this movement, year after year,
wlll have the satisfaction of knowing that they are soldiers
111 tho great army which seeks to bring about peace and
International good-will upon earth, and much hangs on
the loyal co-operation of thc English-speaking nations.
The object of this commemoration is to perpetuate annually the Centenary Celebrations of tlie Signing of tbo Treaty
of Ghent, interrupted by the World War, and as a Memorial
to the fundamental unity of purpose of this widespread
race, whose responsibilities for tlie future of tlie world of
democracy are now greater than ever before.
The centenary was the occasion of such significance
that at that time 1 suggested that an annual commemoration be instituted as a memorial of the hundred years of
peace we had enjoyed.
The Boston Transcript in its editorial of April 23, 1917,
says: "Now the thrill of a great and common cause is felt
between Britain and America! a common hope, a common
lluty, as well as common memories and a common tongue,
suggest a day of celebration which applies to both peoples."
The question is. of course, what day in the year is most
suitable. Magna Charta Day, June 15, has been adopted
because on that day was laid tlie great'foundation-stone of
our joint liberties.
Not only should tlie day bo especially sacred to our race,
but the best thought in all those other nations, which have
been blessed by the larger liberty which has come to them
through that great freedom-forward step, will sympathize
with our celebration on "Magna Charta Day.
The idea of the seven English-speaking nations,—the
United States, Great Britain and Ireland. Canada, Newfoundland, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa—as well
as their dependencies, having one day annually in common,
is compelling enough to justify tlie fullest support of all.
The united influence of these nations is so vast that
such a day would unquestionably have a powerful influence on the world. I felt that with every observance of
such a day, a future world war would bo rendered jusi
that much more difficult.
This day is not for the greater glory of the parent stocks
of the English-speaking peoples, but Is for the general
benefit of all the Inhabitants of those two mighty groups
which, under the providence of God, are giving civil and
religious liberty to one-third of the world's area and
population.
Those citizens of the Dominions and the United States
who are of different stocks should feel that the closer
union of the widely scattered English peoples, the greater
is their influence on world peace, thus benefitting the countries of their forefathers.
In advocating Magna Charta Day, June 15, I do not urge
another public holiday. My thought Is that the press of
the Seven Nations would give the day and all that it stands
for, wide publicity.
And, further, that the churches everywhere would devote
a portion of one service on the third Sunday in June to a
simple programme, to make references, more or less extended, to what the race has done for religious and civil
liberty, and to its great opportunities, and to tis greater
opportunities for the future.
This movement has been very widely and heartily
endorsed by leading men of the Seven Nations, aud the
movement is spreading rapidly.
Emlle Delict, the French astronomer, suggests that, if
one were able to straddle a light ray (which travels 186,-
000 miles a second) and thus voyage through space, observations along the route would be exceedingly interesting.
It would take only a little more than a second to reach
the moon, and in four minutes and 20 seconds ono would
arrive at the planet Mars. One would get as far as Jupiter
ln 35 minutes, to Saturn in 70 minutes, to Uranus In 2V4
hours and to Neptune iu 1 hours. On the way one would
come across a great many comets without tails—nebulous
bodies of spherical shape wliieh are rarely seen from tho
earth. It would take two years to get outside the sphere
of the sun's attraction, anil by that time our orb of day
would look nothing moro Important than a big star. The
star nearest to us. Alpha Centaurl, would meanwhile be
looming up, and the wayfarer through space might expect
to arrive there in n little more than four years. By this
time ho would have journeyed 24,000,000,000 miles.
You will find honesty among thieves, truth among foolR,
but you will find few sparks of manhood, womanhood or
principle in a knocker. A thief might have a kind heart;
a fool might be a faithful friend; but a man who knocks
his home town isn't worth the hole in a doughnut iu any
sort of human relationship.—Penticton Herald.
Let us never forget that God made homo among thc first
things that He created. Before commerce and trade, laws
and statutes, thrones and altars, there were men and
women, fathers and mothers, brothers anil sisters, lovers
and friends, hearthstones and homes.
For the cure of our present ills, we need a new spirit.
The disease that afflicts us is a spiritual disease, and the
only cure that will really avail is a spiritual euro. Men's
hearts have got to be changed before we shall so" either
a changed England or a changed world. Tho best thing
that could happen just now would be a revival of religion.
A revived sense of spiritual things would soon sel thing:;
rigb for tho world. By all means let us help forward every
political scheme that has for its end the betterment of
human conditions, but let us remember that the ultimate
solution lies with Him who can change the human heart

Wallace's (Vancouver) and Ladysmith teams met Saturday afternoon
at Ladysmith in the Connaught Cup
elimination series, and at the end of
regular game had two goals each.
Forty minutes' overtime was played,
but neither side managed to gain an
advantage.
The visitors won the toss anil elected to kick with the sun, and after fifteen minutes' play secured the first
goal from a penalty kick. Fast playing then ensued for ten minutes", when
they secured a second goal from a
corner kick.
In the second half Ladysmith started off with a burst of speed and twenty
minutes later a shot by Davis found
the net, giving tlie goal keeper no
chance to save. Continuing lo press,
Ladysmith equalized tho Bcore by a
second goal eight minutes from tinio.
The score, stood ut two goals each at
end of the game.
It was decided to play forty min-
"utes' overtime, and although both
teams worked hard for a winning goal
no further scoring was made.
The game will probably be finally
decided at Vancouver tills  Saturday.
Referee Locke of Victoria proved
satisfactory in his decisions.

cross, and I Ionic should have scored
easily but there was not strength
enough to his shot and Routledge

ihe ball and beat Routledge with a
good shot. This was greeted with
great applause by tho Cumberland
supporters.

The second half started oil' at a

defence kept their goal Intact. Cumberland hoys pressed for a considerable time but nothing resulted. Lack
of combination of (bo forwards of

neither team being able-to settle down
to right combination. The play Ibis

The linesmen were Jas. L. Brown

PREMIER NEARLY LOST
$500 SENT WITH SUIT
VICTORIA.—Premier Oliver had a
narrow escape of a .151)1) "wash-out"
since Ills return home last week. It
appears that on his travels the premier
usually carries round ln an inside
pocket a roll of bills as protection
against contingencies. On his last
trip he had a $600 roll cached away in
an inside pocket.
The other day, when he came to
look for thc money, alas, it was not.
He could not find the suit. After a
vain search enquiries were made and
It was discovered that the premier's
youngest daughter, witli a proper
housewifely instinct, had sent the suit
to the cleaners. With an absence of a
true housewifely instinct she bad
omitted to go through all the pockets.
A search at thc cleaners revealed
the suit on a rack awaiting the washing machine, but with tbo $*)0U still

WORST EFFECTS OF
FAMINE ARE OVER
China Has Had a Good Wheat
Crop, Says Visitor From
vThe Stricken Area.
VANCOUVER,—"Some of you complain about hard times hero, but compared with where I have been, Van
.couver seems to be experiencing tin
height of prosperity.*' This is one oi
the Interesting statements made b>
Rev. A. W. Lochead, who bas just re
turned to Vancouver for a prolonged
holiday after seventeen years of almost continuous evahgeliastic an.
educational work with the Cauadiai
Presbyterian -Mission at Honan, China
Tlie wheat crop Is excellent then
this year, he said, and the worst effects of the great famine are over, but
for a while conditions in China wow
appalling and had it nol been for tin
relief funds, literally millions would
have, starved to death. As il wa?
many thousands perished nnd r.
wretched condition of poverty attH
exists.
Dealing with the recent uprlulngf
at Wu Chang. Mr. Lochead said it was
only to be expected. Ever since the
downfall of the Manchu dynasty there
had ceased to bo any civil government,
the power being in the bands of three
military governors. There were 2,000,-
000 soldiers under arms in China, he
said, and it was not surprising that
they mutinied, as thoy had not boon
paid for over a year. Sun Vat Sen, the
nominal president, he described as.a
mountebank who bad no real power
at all.
"China seems to ho entirely incapable of any political co-ordination,"
leelared Mr. Lochead, "and it is bard
to fore tet 1 what will happen to that
unfortunate country. It is in the interests of foreign countries to help
China get on her feet again, as she
owes millions of dollars on loans, and
unless some sort of stable government is established, it will lie almosl

DON'T HOG THE ROAD
British Columbia's roads nre too
narrow for reckless driving. Yel
there are some who speed by approaching motorists as if there wore
100 feet of space between them.
Result—the innocent, careful driver
must swerve into the mud of ditch if
he values his life and car.
The new touring season will sec
moro automobiles on tlie highways
than ever. More care will have to be
taken to avoid accidents.
Loss bogging—moro regard for tl
other fellow—will save many a li:
and make the season more pleasu

Spotlights CailSO Accidents
Spotlights and glaring lu-a'dlighi*-
liave caused thousands of automobile
acldents. Failure to use the dimmer
when approaching another car on tbe
road at night blinds the oncoming
driver and he risks either scraping

Wo don't really mean dead nerves
vhen we say it—what we do mean is
i Utile soft connective tissue with
>lood vessels and nerve fibres that is
ound inside tlie tooth and is neces-
ary to the life of the tooth.
The pulps are very sensitive and
lelicate. If they are exposed they
lie. Those that die without actual
ixposuro have been irritated by tooth
lecay or improper use or injury, so
hat tho pulp swells inside its bony
■ase aud chokes itself.
The tooth pulp could stand much
nore Irritation if it had room to
well, but iu Its little canal Inside the
tooth there is no room. As soon as
thc pulp is irritated enough to swell
ever so little, the pressure stops the
incoming of the arterial blood ami
the escape of tho venous blood and
then the circulation stops and decomposition begins,
it is very unfortunate to have the
pulp in a tooth die.
II is true that many times the dead
pulp is successfully removed and the
caiuil artificially filled so tbat the
tooth remains useful for a long period, but many pulpless teeth abscess.
The cleansing and filling ot a tooth
canal is a very difficult and skillful
operation. Whj not take such good
care of the teeth aud mouth that you
will not take chances on having in
fectiou from abscessed teeth?
By keeping the tooth clean and hav
ing small cavities tilled at once the
long, tedious and sometimes painful
operation can be avoided. Sound teeth
in good position and with live healthy
nerves do not give trouble; they do
their work willingly.

TO  THE  DENTIST
By WALT MASON.
To the dentist 1 am wending at the
early hour of day, when tbe rising
sun is lending glory to tbo stacks of
hay; for a session elevating all arrangements have been made, and the
painless dentist's waiting with his
crowbar and his spade. Oh my ringbones long have smarted, and my
spavins hurt my calves; for such
things in days departed, I used liniments and salves; but my teeth are at
the bottom of such miseries as these,
and the same old teeth, dod trot 'em,
make existence seem a cheese. Once
I had a temper cheerful, and my home
was full of peace, and you heard no
wailing tearful from my wife or aunt
or niece; but for months I've been as
nasty as a bear with festered dome,
and I said things blauky-blasty when
I had to write a pome. Oh. a shadow
o'er me hovered, and it changed my
.vine to gall, and the doctor has discovered that my teeth produced it all.
Of all uticas the pontist is the one
iliat spoils our glee, so I'm going to
ihe dentist and the dentist waits for
me. In his apron new and stainless
be is waiting at his door, be is standing tall and painless, and his smile is
live hy four; he is singing like a linnet, waiting there to cut his ice, and
he'll charge a hone a minute, but the
goods are worth the price.
UED LIGHT TO SIGNIFY
LADY IS DISENGAGED
Dancing hall promoters in London
are about to introduce the latest innovation which bas been made into Paris
dancing halls. This is a small red
.■lectric lamp to signal that a lady is
■iisengaged and desires to dance. The
lamp is attached to one of the tables,
and the lonely one merely has to press
a button, when her loneliness is illu-
nQlnatod—and probably terminated.
In Paris the method has proved a
great success. The number of "wall
dowers" in the establishments where
the lamps have been introduced has
been greatly reduced. But the quos-
ion that agitates the minds of dance
;n'omotefs is will Englishwomen ever
ivercome their national shyness suttl*
iently to take advantage of tbe little
red light?
FAMILY OF ELEVEN WENT
INSANE OVER SEANCES
Spiritualistic mania caused eleven
members of a family in the village of
lprechteninoten, South Bavaria, he-
■oming insane. For some time a
builder named Break, with his wife
and five grown-up sons and daughters,
hud been accustomed to hold a sort
of seance, at which four younger
children were also present. Apparently under the belief that they had
received from spirits instructions to
destroy all material substances in the
Imuse, they commenced burning the
furniture, including the beds. Then
they smashed all the crockery. Neighbors found them preparing to kill the
three months' old infant of one of
ihe daughters, tbe father stating that
ho was going to offer it as a burnt
sacrifice to the "spirit of pure light."
A doctor having declared the family
suliering from religious mania, all
eleven members were taken under
police escort to a sanitarium,

"BREWSTER'S MILLIONS"
"Fatty" Arbuckle Shows How to
Spend a Million in a Year in
This Hilarious Comedy
Could you spend a million dollars ill
one year, and conic out at the end of
that time flat broke, witli no assets.
and no wlte to help you spend it?
This is no easy task, as "Fatty" Arbuckle, noted comedian, proves in his
Paramount picture, "Brewster's Millions," which wlll be shown at tlie
Ilo-llo on Saturday night.
The story is one of pure comedy romance. It lias been embellished highly in tbe screen version by tlie inclusion ot a number of incidents that appear in neither the novel or the play,
with the result that the production
has a far greater comedy value than
either of its forerunners. These additions are of such a character that
only one living comedian can put
across—"Fatty" Arbuckle.
It Is the story of Monte Brewster
who is left fatherless at the tender
age of two years. "Fatty" permits no
substitute to do the hard work in his
plays, and this is no exception. He
appears in person as the infant.
His two grandfathers quarrel as to
bow the boy, a promising and lusty
youngster, should be brought up, so
that, when he is five years of age, his
mother's patience is exhausted, and
sbe tells the grandfathers that she
wlll bring up her child In ber own
way, Just as she pleases, without interference from either of them. Monte
himself, too young to realize the import of his mother's decision, plays
artlessly with the usual toys of the
ordinary five-year-old child, and little reckons what the future has iu
store for him. Tile grandfathers give
it up as a bad job and wasli their bands
of responsibility for his up-bringing—
all of wliclli is a good thing tor the
youngster.
When he is twenty-five Monte (still
"Fatty" himself) who is now an
orphan, struggles along on a slim
salary as a clerk in a steamship
office.
After a series of incidents in which
his poverty is accentuated, and his efforts to make both ends meet take on
an extremely humorous aspect to tbe
audience, it comes about that Grandfather Brewster offers to make a gentleman of his grandson, and presents
him with a million dollars.
The other grandfather makes a
counter proposition to Monte, to take
him into his business as an active
partner, and give him live million
dollars, if at tbe end of the year he is
absolutely broke. How he carries out
this compact, spends tlie million and
experiences the strangest tricks of
Fate, rounds out the story in an hour
and a half of riotous laughter.
woman. She explains that her sister,
an actress, has married Charles Porter and thut sho had uot told ber bus-
baud, fearing he might object to an
actress in the family. It was Porter
who had wired Mrs. Ellis to come to
Now York.
Bob, turning to Edna, asks what
she is doing there witli Patrick, Patrick again steps iu with the statement
tbat he and Edna are married. Congratulations are passed and then lie
convinces Edna that the Bafest tiling
to do under tlie circumstances is to
get married. Edna Is the "beautiful
unknown" witli whom Patrick had
fallen in love iu the lirst place.
"DICE OF DESTINY"
"SOONER OR LATER"
Woman Hater Thought He Had
Kidnapped Another Man's
Wife, and Gets His.
When a man tries to affect a reconciliation between his pal and his- pal's
wife, he usually lands in hot water,
even though tbe scheme was proposed
by his pal.
This is what happened to Patrick
Murphy (Owen Moore) in "Sooner or
Later," which shows at the Ilo-llo on
Tuesday next.
Patrick Murphy, a young attorney,
rated a "good catch," who had persistently avoided women, sees an unknown girl with whom he falls desperately in love. His friend, Bob
Ellis, enlists his aid to save the honoh
of the Ellis family. Mrs. Ellis has
left her home in Fairhaven, Conn., to
meet a Mr. Porter in New York, and
her husband thinks sbe is engaged in
a clandestine affair. Ellis commissions Patrick to And his wife and in
describing her, Ellis convinces Patrick she is tlie beautiful girl with
whom he (Patrick) has fallen in love.
Patrick goes to the Hotel Plaza at
lunch time and finds tbe girl. Her
name happens to be Edna Ellis, of
Fairhaven, New Jersey, and she agrees
to accompany him when he tells her
that her presence at Fairhaven is re
quired immediately. This wrong Ellis
girl soon discovers that Patrick is not
taking her home, but Is unable to leave
the automobile. She concludes Patrick is demented and decides to humor
him.
Arrived at Bob Ellis' home in Fairhaven, Conn., Patrick and Edna are
visited by Mrs. Hollander and her
daughter, who have met Bob Ellis in
New York. The Hollanders know that
Patrick's companion is a friend of the
Eliises and are surprised to find her
there alone with Patrick. To explain
the embarrassing situation Patrick
tells the Hollanders that he and Edna
are married.
Bob arrives home and has scarcely
had time to discover the case of mistaken identity when in walks Mrs.
Ellis, accompanied  by  a  man  aud
Starring H. B. Warner, The Best
Dressed Man in Films—The
Romance of a Clever Crook
On this old world of ours wo are
but dice shaken by the band of Destiny. Destiny's throw predetermines
our lives. It may cast us either in
the role of peasant or king, beggar or
millionaire, minister or thief.
The dice of Destiny shook Jimmy
Doyle into the underworld. His profession, at which bis Augers wore so
skillful, was tbat of a jewel thief.
Fate played queer tricks with the fortunes and misfortunes of Jimmy Doyle
and Nancy Preston, tbe girl left iu his
charge by her father, whose dying
wish was that sbe should never be
allowed to get in the clutches of tbe
law by playing tbe crook game.
From the experience born of a life
of crime, Bill Preston spoke to bis
daughter on his death-bed. "There's
only one way to beat this crooked
game, Naucy.  Keep out of it!"
Old Bill had kept ber out of the
game so far, but when he was gone,
would Dave aud Joe protect her? He
distrusted Dave because he had seen
iu his eyes a flame of passion. Joe
was greedy and treacherous. He would
betray a pal.
Jimmy Doyle was the only one to be
trusted—Jimmy was clean and played
the crook game "straight." He had
been like a brother to Nancy, and to
liim Bill entrusted his most cherished
possession.
As an ex-couvict, Jimmy was a
target for the venom of the police and
detectives; as a crook who dropped
his old associates and led a straight
life, he won the enmity of his pals,
who double-crossed him.
A red-blooded, brave-hearted story
of adventure and romance is "Dice of
Destiny," which presents H. B. Warner, the Jesse D. Hampton-Pathe star,
at the Ilo-llo Theatre on Thursday of
next week.
THE WORLD AND HIS WIFE
Dash and Color of Spain Reproduced in This Photoplay—
A Dramatic Story.
The color and passion of modern
Spain is reflected in "The World and
His Wife," which will be the feature
at the Ilo-llo Theatre on Saturday of
next week, Juno 25. The story, which
was adapted from a famous Spanish
play, tells of Don Julian and his beautiful girl-bride, Feodora. After their
marriage, Ernesto, a young writer,
comes to live with them, and the
world, with Don Alvarez as its spokesman, starts spreading evil stories
about Feodora and Ernesto. The result is a duel and a series of dramatic
events that result in the death of Don
Julian and the final happiness of the
young folks.
True-to-life "atmosphere" in motion pictures is of prime importance.
It adds considerably to tbe enjoyment
of tlie picture. That was why so many
men from the southern part of Europe
had a hand In the filming of "The
World and His Wife."
The scene of this picture is northern
Spain. Now, northern Spain resembles in many parthlsucira
bles in many particulars southern
France and Northwestern Italy. So
Robert G. Vignola, who is a northern
Italian, was chosen to direct tlle picture and Al Liquori, a follow countryman, photographed it. No wonder they
were able to reproduce so accurately
tbe dash and color of the Latin countries.
Gaston Glass, who plays the youthful hero, is a native of southern France
and a godson of Sarah Bernhardt. And
Pedro de Cordoba, excellent ill a semi-
heavy role, is from sunny Spain itself. To be sure, Alma Rubens, the
heroine and featured player, is a San
Franciscan, but she is of a warm,
dusky type and in mantilla looks the
ideal Spanish maiden. "The World
and His Wife" is a Paramount Artcraft picture.
It's an appealing story of modern
Spain, full of color and passion.
Helen Keller, the blind girl, was
appearing at a New York theatre
when thc picture "Tlie Kid" was run
after one of tiie regular performances.
Her mother and her tutor sat on each
side of hot* and by tappings of their
lingers on her wrists kept her informed of tlie action and tlie sub-titles
as tbey appeared on tlie screen. So
skillful have they become lu tills
method of communication that they
were able to keep Miss Keller abreast
of tlie action of tiie picture, and her
laughs were spontaneous with those
of the others in tlie small audience.
Realism in his pictures, regardless
of cost, is demanded by Cecil B. de
Mille, director of special feature productions for Paramount. One scene
in "The Affairs of Anntol." the last
picture he has completed, was do-
signed by Paul tribe, the French artist, and into It went $30,OUO worth of
furnishings, among them the reproduction of a rare set of Louis XVI.
chairs. Yet, at tbe end of the scene,
Wallace Reid, tbe leading man, was
required to smash everything in the
place. Not a stick of furniture remained in Its original shape when the
filming of tbe scene was complete.
Justine Johnstone announces that
she will become a picture producer as
well as a player for no less a, purpose
than "to defend her sex against the
false impressions wliieh are being
aroused by present-day motion pictures." Her first production will be
called "Fifth Avenue," and will set
forth "the development of women in
social and civic life during the last
quarter of a century, with the growth
of New York's famous street as a
symbol."
D. W. Griffith's "Way Down East"
has celebrated its 500th showing in a
New York theatre. Only Mr. Griffith's
"The Birth of a Nation," which ran
through 000 showings, and bis "Hearts
of the World," wliieh continued ou
Broadway for 506 exhibitions, have
had longer runs.
Nice is promising to develop into
the Los Angeles of Europe, wilh its
picturesque scenes, Its palatial residences and its sunlight, that tbe natives are willing to match against any
sample from California. Three or
tour Italian and French companies
have started operating there.
Tbe story of tbe famous Hope diamond and tlie events wblch have
murked tlie history of this jewel for
the last 1,600 years is to be shown
on the screen. The Ploueer Film Corporation announces the near completion of a fifteen-episode serial, which
will bo known as "Tlie Hope Diamond
Mystery."
Making legitimate stage plays for
moving pictures is * tbe latest. Lau-
rette Taylor's new vehicle is to be
"Humoresque." As a film directed by
Frank Borzage this story created an
unusual sensation and placed at least
two persons, Vera Gordon and Mr.
Borzage, in the international limelight.
In William S. Hart's forthcoming
picture, "The Three Wood Brand,"
the Western star plays a triple role,
a father and bis twin sons, one of
whom becomes the Governor of Utali
Territory.
Sixty thousand persons are now
gaining their livelihood from motion
pictures in California.

Tlir MEANEST MAN

his church. The pastor was taking a
special collection. Eighteen dollars
in small change had been received
but $2 more was needed. After repeated pleadings by the minister
stranger arose and said: "If you will

The offer was accepted and the stran

BOTTLE PLENTY OF
FRUIT THIS SEASON
One Pound of Sugar  Sufficient
for Canning Six Quarts of
Fruit With This Recipe
Strawberries and other fruit are going to be plentiful and cheap tliis season, and housewives are well advised
to put up all the fruit they can. This
week sugar lias dropped • another 50
cents, which is another inducement
A very economical recipe for putting
up fruit has been supplied by tbe Gordon Head Fruit Growers' Association
and it only <;alls for one pound of
sugar to six quarts of fruit. At this
rate the present cost of sugar only
works out at about two cents a quart
jar.   The recipe is as follows:
Fill 6 quart jars with fresh fruit
carefully but firmly packed in layers.
Prepare a syrup by adding 1 lb. of
sugar to 12 cups of water, or a ratio
of 1 of sugar to 6 of water.
Boil the syrup for 15 minutes and
allow it to cool; pour it over the fruit
to within one-half inch of top of jar.
Secure the cover in the usual way.
Place the jars In a boiler In which
a board should be placed to prevent
jars coming In too close touch with
the stove". Fill the boiler with cold
water up to neck of jars and allow to
come to tlie boiling point. Berries
may be removed then but will not hurt
lo remain 10 minutes. Stone and other
iruits should be boiled 20 minutes be
iore removing.
Seal jars as soon as removed, and
■ifter cooling store in a cool palce.
Fruit put up ill tills way requires no
further application of sugar when
serving and the fruit retains its nat-
iral flavor.
