FORTY-SECOND YEAR—NO. 13.
CUMBERLAND, BRITISH COLUM BIA, SATURDAY, MARCH, 31st 1923
SUBSCRIPTION PRICE:  TWO DOLLARS PER ANNUM.
PREMIER OLIVER GOES
ON A SPEAKING TOUR
Premier Oliver has commenced his
peaceful invasion of the prairie province ln connection with his fight for
equal freight rates for British Columbia. So far Alberta and Saskatchewan have stood solidly behind this
province in petitioning Ottawa for
fairer treatment in this regard: Recently the Calgary Board of Trade decided not to support British Columbia
any longer, but this action was
promptly repudiated by the Alberta
Government, and Premier Oliver has
received the assurance that the neighboring provinces are ln the fight to
the end. The government leader here
la known as a lighter who never gives
up, and he has declared that there can
be no truce. British Columbia must
have the Bame freight rates as the
eastern provinces and only in this way
can the West agree with the East on
matters pertaining to the general
development of the Dominion.
Premier Oliver ls conducting a
speaking tour in British Columbia
nnd will visit as many points as possible. In a few weeks he will address
audiences ln Alberta and probably
Saskatchewan. Prominent Conservatives, as well as Liberals, are behind
tiie Premier In this matter. Even W.
J. Bowser, opposition leader, pledges
his support.
* *     *
Figures were quoted recently by
Hon. J. D. MacLean, provincial secretary, showing that British Columbia Is
the healthiest province in the Dominion. The larger centres have remarkably low death rates and the smaller
towns have set up an enviable record.
The deatliB from accidents have been
tew as compared with other provinces,
but the loss annually through fires Is
loo large a one to be proud of.
Prior to leaving for Ottawa, Hon. T.
1). Pattullo, minister of lands, Issued
instructions for the distribution of
literature regarding fire prevention
sind readers who have not received
this may secure It direct from the
forest branch. Last summer witnessed very heavy Are lasses end this
year the laws bave been made much
stricter. British Columbia has an asset In her timber which can be
conserved indefinitely, but every
citizen must assist ln fighting fires
if the heavy losses are not to be paid
each year.
This province has 400,000,000,000
board feet of standing timber, with an
annual Increase through growth alone
of 8,000,000.000, and while the total
rapacity ot provincial saw-mills is
only 2,500,000.000 feet ot lumber annually, still, fire destroys as much timber as Is cut. It la a simple matter to
put out a camp fire, but It requires
from 50 to 100 years to reproduce a
forest giant
• *     *
The regarding of her autonomy by
South Vancouver reduces the government's obligations by upwards of
(1,000,000. Since the appointment of
a commissioner to govern the municipality much progress has been made
and under careful government supervision the people of South Vancouver
have landed upon their feet again.
• •     *
Regulations have been passed by the
department of public works, limiting
Ihe weight of trucks and their loads
on provincial roads to four tons. This
applies every place but between Vancouver and New Westminster, where
the main highway has been built In a
manner to permit of elght.ton loads
* *     •
The stricter enforcement of the
Government Liquor Act since Hon. A.
M. Manson assumed the attorney
generalship, hns rosulted In cutting
Infringements of the lew down to the
lowest point reached since British Co
Inmbla espoused moderation. While
bootlegging still continues, and will,
the official reports show a much cleaner record.

Easter Spirit Is A
Predominant One
Nineteen Hundred and Twenty Three years ago that
great sacrifice was made which set up in the world's history
the most wonderful example of self elimination in the consideration of the relief and salvation of others.
It is well that the commemoration of such events
should be celebrated in fitting manner. In Churches and
in homes the Easter Spirit predominates. The lesson taught
on Calvary's Hill was that after suffering comes rejoicing
and the darkest hour is that before dawn.
Courage and determination of purpose are two of the
great factors necessary in following the Christ's example.
It is often difficult for mere mortals to exercise these qualities under stress of sorrow and disappointment but rest to
the weary and peace to the soul comes from even a small
recognition of the sacrifice that was made and the purpose
for which it was made.
On this Easter occasion the Islander extends greetings
to all its readers.

What ls known locally as Grant's
Mine, Is just entering upon a productive basis. The mine is located alongside of the Jingle Pot mine, which was
closed down some years , ago. Mr.
Grant bought ln all the plant of the
Jingle Pot, the necessary land for the
pit-head and yardage, the bunkers, and
wharf on the bay, and opened out an
old slope. Owing to the slackness In
the coal trade he stopped development
work in 1920, but resumed operations
a few months ago. He has now carried the hoisting slope down to the
coal, and this week struck a fine vein
of the finest coal five feet In thickness.
Coal ls now being hoisted every shift
and as soon as places can be opened
out the mine will be producing on a
considerable scale.
Mr. Grant Is more than pleased with
present indcations, and he has a big
Held to exploit. He has completed all
his surface equipment, and Is all ready
to cope with a capacity output. The
coal will be loaded Into cars at the
mine and then transported over the
railway of the Ladysmith Lumber
Company to the bunkers and wharf
situated on the channel between Na
nalmo harbor and Departure Bay. The
surface equipment has all been laid
out for economy and convenience, and
will be fully adequate to meet all the
requirements of the mine as it Is developed. Should the seam prove at all
uniform, and there Is no reason to
think that It will not, Grant's Mine
should, in a very few months, prove
one ot the most profitable mines on
the Island,

WELL RECEIVED
At the conclusion of the usual service at the Presbyterian Church on Sunday last,—a combined chorus of tbe
Anglican, Presbyterian and Methodist
Church choirs ot Cumberland, under
the conductorshlp of Mr. C. W. Sll-
lence of Royston, gave an excellent
rendering of "The Crucifixion" (Staln-
er). The Church being filled to capacity.
A brief reference to the solemnity of
the subject by the Rev. W. Leversedge,
attuned the audience to a receptive
and appreciative mood, and rapt attention was given to the Incidents of
the Redeemers Cross and Passion as
portrayed In Stalners wonderful work.
Mr. Owen presided at the organ.
The Ilass recitatives and solos wore
undertaken by Mr. W. Carr who sang
with much expression. The Tenor
solos and recitatives were sung by
Mr. J. Walton who was ln good voice
and showed evidence of careful study
The chorus was particularly good In
the Processional "Fling wldo the
Bates" and In "The appeal of the Crucified" the graduations from fortissimo to pianissimo being particularly
well marked.
With the possible exception ot the
contralto voices, which at times appeared to be rather weak,—the general ensemble was good. The rendition throughout was of a thoroughly
artistic nature and showed evidence
of careful training. .Mr. Slllence Is to
be congratulated upon placing before
the public a splendid Interpretation
of one of Stalners best known works.
We hope to hear this excellent combination again In the near future, and
Mr. Slllence can be assured he will
always find nn appreciative audience
to welcome him nt Cumberland.

COURTENAY PLANS
REGATTA IN JUNE
OBSERVATION OF A
FEDERAL MEMBER
March 1st.—In answer to a quesUon
ln the House It the Govt. Intended to
Introduce Old Age Pensions this year,
ln view of the resolution passed last
year endorsing It, the Minister of Finance, who waB leading the Govt at
the moment, somewhat curtly replied
that "No decision favourable to the
movement has been reached." But
what about last year's resolution ? and
what about the Liberal platform which
contained this plank?
Steps are being taken to bring pressure to bear on the Govt, in favor of
this much needed measure.
March 2nd.—Minister of Immigration Introduced Act respecting Chinese
Immigration. With some required
amendments It will form a very satisfactory measure ot exclusion, only
those admitted being the Diplomatic
Corps, Chinese children born In Canada, merchants and students. If the
definition of "merchant" Is sufficiently strict, It will practically prohibit
the Immigration of more Chinese Into
Canada, a good and long desired
measure If only the word "Asiatic"
had been used instead of "Chinese."
However It Is a long step In the right
direction I
Mafch 13th.—Long debate started on
estimates of Minister of Immigration
proposing to vote more money to
bring ln Immigrants and part of It as
a subsidy to a Colanizatlon Company.
Many divergent views expressed but
soon two distinct lines of thought
shown. One part of the Members, Irrespective entirely ot their party alliance, aro out solidly for letting all
bars down and having a flood of Immigration to provide cheap labor for
factories and all employees ot labor.
They do not say so openly but that Is
exactly their ambition. The other
Members assert that ln view of the
large unemployment doles and tbe unfavourable conditions of farming on
the prairies (In Manitoba, the most
prosperous of the three Provinces,
there are fourteen million dollars ot
back taxes uncollected and further
West rural schools are being closed,
not for want ot pupils but for want ot
money to pay tbe teachers)—that it
is unwise to largely Increase our outlay for immigration and that the money had better be spent In endeavouring to help the farming Industry to
be at least self supporting, when Immigration will be attracted and come
In of its own accord. Debate still
continuing.
Organization Is Formed to Carry Ont
Bis; Scheme.
Courtenay plans to hold s regatta
some time next June, which, It the
plans now under way materialize, will
be one of Uie biggest attractions ever
staged In waters north of Puget
Sound.
On Wednesday evening of this week
a meeting was held In the Canadian
Bank of Commerce Chambers when
about thirty enthusiastic citizens of
Courtenay and district decided that
the ovent should be hold ln Comox Bay,
one of the finest stretches of water
on the Pacific Coast.
It will be the endeavor of the committee which was appointed to further
plans for the regatta, to secure entries from all portions of the Coast
and aa W, N. Kenndy, a Champion
oarsman, was responsible for calling
the meeting, and Is taking a very active part In promoting the scheme,
there Is no question whatever as to
the success of the affair.
A committee composed of the follow
Ing was appointed to draw up a ten
tutlve programme and arrange for fur
ther meetings: Messrs Ross, Osier.
Heggle, Brock, Eadle and E. Lloyd.
SIGNS OF SPRING
With the coming of the Spring time,
the voice of the Sanitary Inspector Is
heard In the laud. Already the results
of his visits to various back yards are
apparent as the teamsters are seen
busily engaged In removing ashes,
etc, which bave accumulated during
the period while snow covered the
ground. It Is a promising sign when
citizens work together for the cleaning up and beautifying of the City,
and gratlfqlng when such cleaning up
is done without the necessity of legal
process to enforce It.

Quebec, March.—During 1922, the
Department of Lands and Forests utilized 332 assistant fire rangers to improve the protective system ln settlers'
districts. These assistant Ure rangers
are selected In each range, among the
most progressive settlers. They have
the authority to issue permits to burn
clearances and also to enforce the law,
which requires each settler to watch
the progress of his fires. They can
also summon help and direct the fight
against fires which may escape the
settler or occur ln the vicinity of
their beat. This system of assistant
fire ranges has become very popular,
because It enables the settler to obtain a permit at any Ume, provided
he has complied with the obligations
of the permit, that is, if he has piled
the debris of his clearing Into heaps
or rows and if he has cleared a strip
or rows and If he has cleared a strip
of at least 50 feet between such heaps
or rows and the adjoining forest Ot
course the weather conditions must be
favourable and there must not be any
drought. The settler appreciates very
much the fact that he is no longer obliged to make ten to fifteen miles to
tbe ranger's home, with the chances
of finding him away. The moral effect Is also great, as the assistant forest ranger residing among the settlers
causes them to be more careful; they
discuss between themselves the danger
arising from the Imprudence ot careless people and we find that, in many
sections, the settlers are co-operating
together to the extent that they will
all burn ut the same time bo all the
available men are ln readiness; therefore, the old "Bee" system Is coming
back; this means that, with the hearty co-operation of all the Interested,
clearances are being burned and very
little damage, caused. In fact, In the
Abltlbl region, and the Lake St. John
district where the assistant-fire rangers were employed, 90% af the clearances have been burned laBt year and
only a few acres of green forest were
scorched. This shows that the settler
can burn bis clearance provided we appeal to him In tho right manner.
GAS ON STOMACH
WON'T LET YOU SLEEP
Gas often presses on heart and other
organs, causing a restless, nervous
feeling which prevents sleep. Simple
buckthorn bark, glycerine, etc., as
mixed tn Adlerlka, expels gas and relieves pressure almost INSTANTLY,
inducing restful sleep. Adlerlka often
removes surprising old matter from
BOTH upper and lower bowel which
poisoned stomach and caused gas. EXCELLENT to guard against appendicitis.—R. C. LANG, Druggist.
Montreal.—A museum of French art
has been opened ln the Municipal Library.
The daylight saving proposal Is agitating the minds of certain people ln
Courtenay and those who will not allow themselves to be kidded Into the
idea that it they shove the ticker ahead
sixty minutes that instrument automatically presents them with an extra
hour every day, are going to put up
a vigorous protest against the adoption ot a scheme that is not universal
throughout the country. It Is a certainty that the Farming community
does not want the innovation; ln fact
they do not need It for It Is hard
enough for a real live farmer to save
anything under present conditions and
It Is a certainty that he will not be
bluffed into believing that If he gets
up an hour earlier every day he ls
ahead of the game. How can a man
who goes to bed and meets himself
getting up do any better than that?
When this riddle can be answered
perhaps the farmers and those who
love the long stretch on an ostermoor
In the early morning will accept the
proposal.

discussed. One of these was the idea
of District exhibits at the fall fair and
a comprehensive report waB submitted
by the chairman ot the committee in •
charge of this new department. Great j
interest was evinced in the report andj
It is a certainty that this new depart- ■
ure for the fall fair will be a big sue-,
cess.
Another proposal was received from
representatives of a club in Courtenay
for the construction of a large platform In the Agricultural Grounds lo
be used for playing tennis and other
purposes. The matter was received
favorably and left ln the hands of a
committee of three with power to act
Since the meeting on Tuesday night it
has been stated that an effort will be
made to have the platform ready for
use at the May Day celebration of tbe
school children. A report was received concerning collections of money
for tbe purchase of the Agricultural
Orounds by the Association. Over six
hundred dollars has been received nnd
It is necessary to have further four
hundred to allow the purchase to be
made In compliance with terms arranged with the owner. It Is therefore requested that those In sympathy
with this object who have not given
anything and who wish to do so, pay
their bit Into tbe Royal Bank of Canada or to the Cumberland Islander or
Comox Argus office before the 20th
day of April, when a complete list of
donors will be published ln the press of
the District. Another subject taken
up was the entrance and exist to the
hall. An attempt will be made to have
these enlarged, thus adding to the
comfort of visitors to the fall fair.
The funeral of the late Mrs. Thomas
Turnbull was held on Friday afternoon last from the family home to the
Sandwlck Presbyterian cemetery, the
service at the house and graveside being conducted by the Rev. W. T. Beat-
tie. Many beautiful floral tokens
were ln evidence, having been sent by
a large number ot old time friends of
the family. The pallbearers were
Messrs. D. R. Macdonald, C. 3. Moore,
Wm. Grieve, Berkeley Grieve, J. N.
McLeod and Hugh Clark.
EXTENSIVE
ALTERATIONS AT
RIVERSIDE HOTEL
HON. E. D. BARROW
WAS VISITOR HERE
The Hon. E. D. Barrow, Minister ot
Agriculture in the Provincial cabinet
was a visitor in Courtenay on Friday
last, having come up to the Valley
Hub to discuss with the gentlemen
who are working on the reassessment
of the Merville area what is being
done by them. Tbe Minister made the
visit on the solicitation of the members of the Assessment Board, composed of Messrs, Wm. Duncan, Wm.
Wain and R. U. Hurford. The Assessment Board bad a week's work to
place before the Minister and he declared himself as entirely satisfied
with the way the members of the
Board are carrying out their onerous
duties. This work is being undertaken as the result of representations
made to the Provincial Government
by the Courtenay-Comox Board of
Trade after consultation with representatives of the Merville Soldier
Settlement. One member of the Board
was nominated by the Board of Trade,
one by the Merville people and the
third by the other two.
Courtenay, March 27.—ln preparation for the summer tourist trade
some ot the local business bouses are
making improvements to their premises. The most notable perhaps Is the
Riverside Hotel, where the large dining room upstairs has been closed and
which will be rebuilt into seven new
rooms for the accommodation of
guests. Mr. Dixon has disposed of
the dining room privileges to Mr. N.
II. Bravender, who haB had the vacant
room on the ground floor of the ho,
tel throughly remodelled, making It
one of the most comfortable short order restaurants on the Island. It Ib
divided Into two compartments, In one
of which several tables have been Installed. The other side of the dining
room is a lunch counter separated
from the tableB by an exquisitely panelled partition. The whole room has
a neat appearance and the service is
certainly excellent. Mr. Bravender
showing conclusively that the years
he has spent as a restauranteur bave
not been lost. He was ln business In
Edmonton, Alberta previous to coming
to ourtenay.
GOLF COURSE TO BE
READY MAY 24TH
Mr. A. M. D. Falrbalrn, ot Victoria,
is busily engaged laying out the course
ot the Comox Golf Club at the Bay.
He has about flt'ten men employed and
states that the course will be ready
for play on the 24th of May. The site
ot this course certainly ls a beautiful
one, overlooking as It does one ot the
prettiest bays on the Pacific Coast,
with a magnificent view ot the Coast
range of mountains.
The board tennis court at the Elk
Hotel, Comox haB been ln general use
during the fine weather of the past
few days and the management ot the
hotel have announced that their first
open air dance of the season will be
held at the Bay on the night of Victoria Day, May 24th.

COLLIERY TO USE
NEW MACHINERY
Company Hopes to Find Employment
for an Additional 2000.
London, March 29.—At the Clipstone
colliery of the new Sherwood coal
field It Is intended to use o.-al-cutttng
machinery on a scale that has not
been attempted anywhere else in this
country. It is possible that as an experiment an attempt will be mnda
when the mine Is ready for production on a big scale to hew the whole
of the coal by machines.
The experienment will be watched
with keen interest in mining circles,
because there are wide differences of
opinion about the use of cutting machines in fairly thick seam;. In the
thin seams of the older pits the use nf
cutters lias undoubtedly proved econo-
mlni'ul, and, although the task of
tending the machines Is not without
trials, it does relieve the collier from
work which Is exceptionally exhausting. The comparative merits of the
hewer's work and the machine In good
thick seams, cannot be stated with
such confidence, however.
At Clipstone the stage of full production is being rapidly approached.
The coal was reached in December,
but the company, acting on the best
mining principles, has decided to drive
the westward main road until the
boundary of its Mansfield colliery has
been reached before turning coal in
any quantity.
This Involves a delay in the return
on capital, but the loss will he more
than repaid by the Increased efficiency with which the mine can be developed afterwards. The coal is the well-
known Barnsley or top-hard seam. It
is six feet thick, but only four and a
half feet can be worked, and this will
yield both steam and bright house
coal.
Two thousand five hundred men will
be employed within the next two
years, and a minimum output of 3,000
tons n day is expected. The two
shafts are 650 yards deep.

The New Party
Interest In the forthcoming musical
festival to be held in the latter part of
May is evidenced by the number of
choirs already practicing for the
event, and the number of enquiries
which are reaching the festival office
daily from all parts of the province.
The music teachers of the city arc well
on with their preparatory work of
training their pupils in the compositions set by the syllabus committee—
nnd In this connection attention is
drawn to the fact that the competitions are not taken up in the order of
entrance but arc balloted for at the
date of adjudication.
Considering that this is British Columbia's first competition festival, the
trophies and other prizes are exceptionally fine. Among these may be
mentioned shields donated by the
Men's Musical Club, David Spencer Limited, O. 11. Allan Limited; cups donated by Mt. Pleasant Lodge and Royal City Lodge; shield donated by the
Women's Musical Club of Vancouver,
also one from His Honor the Lieutenant-Governor, and one from Terminal
City Lodge No. 54.
There are gold and sliver medals
for the vlcal classes, and for junior
vocalists a full business course at the
Pitman College, valued at $160, la a
prize that is given, E. Lupton is presenting a gold-mounted baton to the
conductor of the winning choir In
class 1.
Aside trom these honors, however,
students and musicians will do well
to take advantage of the unique op
portunity to secure the criticism and
analysis of such authorities as Granville Bantock and H. Plunkett Greene
Their marks will indicate the strength
and weaknesses of the individual com
petitors, and they will give such ser
vice and asistance as their limited
time will permit. Such assistance
will be appreciated, and should be tak
en advantage of to the fullest possible
extent.
In Victoria the Vancouver entrants
are going to find worthy competitors,
as the interest displayed ln the capital city Indicates a number of entries
in practically all the classes. The
smaller towns, moreover, are going to
spring some surprises, as it is a well-
known fact that particularly In choral
work the smaller communities, by reason of more diligent practice, almost
Invariably take the high honors.

A little boy went down to the cricket
ground and demanded free entrance
because he wanted to speak to his
father, who was umpire, very particularly. He went out on the field and
said: "Mother Bays she wants that
parcel of sandwiches back." "She can't
have them—I ate them an hour ago,"
said the umpire. "Then she'll have to
clean your Sunday boots with salmon
and shrimp paste," said the boy. "Mother put the brown boot polish In the
sandwiches."
Biased reports of political conditions'
In this or any other province lead no-
where, nor do they hoodwink the pub- j
lie. The Conservative party held the
reins of power for many years. During the past seven years the Liberals
have been ln office. There has been
no serious attempt to form a third party, although the farmer movement
created a Btir for a while. Now, the
new "provincial party" is on the map,
temporarily or permanently, as time
will tell, but to the unprejudiced observer It appears that there Is comparatively little Interest being taken
In the third parly movement. The ■
"provincials" got away to a flying
start In Vancouver, largely through
publicity, curiosity of the public and,
careful organization. Since that timet
the movement has undoubtedly lust,
momentum, until now the third party's days appear numbered.
So once more, as has been the case
In innumerable Instances In political,
history, the voter must choose between
one of two parties. Either the Oliver j
government must have more time to!
continue their work—which appears
to have restored the credit of the prov-
Inoe despite hard times—of Mr. Bow-j
ser must be given another chance. The!
political wiseacre maintains that the j
dissatisfaction with Mr. Bowser's!
leadership has caused a split in the
Conservative party which has resulted
in the formation of a third party.
Certain It Is, the lender of the opposition Is working Industriously to
"kill" tho McRay party, perhaps for
good reasons. Meanwhile, British Columbia Is well on the way to industrial and commercial prominence and
"changing horses in mid-stream" has
never proven a profitable venture.
GAINED 65 POUNDS!
"Five yeara ego when I waa first
married. 1 had wonderful energy.
I could be on the go all day one;
without feeling the least bit fatigued. I had a great appetite and
rould eat anything. 1 weighed
147 pounds. I used to be busy
evei-y minute of the day and, when
the day was over, I could go to
bed and never waken once during
the night. Thirteen months ago
my first baby was born. After
tliat my energy seemed to leave
me, I waa tired all the time. I
had to force myself to do my
household duties. Instead of being
a pleasure as formerly, these
duties became a real task. 1 lost
all deaire for food and nothing
would tempt me. I had to make
mysoif eat. I would go to bed at
night and toss from side to side
for hours at a time. After a
while I would doze ofT only to
find that I had been sleeping for
ten or fifteen minutes. Naturally
when morning came, not having
slept, I started the day completely
tired out. I was shaky and nervous. Tiie least noise would
startle mc ond make my heart race
along. I could see that my husband was worried. I was losing
weight every week nnd had ol-
ready lost 54 pounds. I tried nil
kinds of tonics, but they didn't
help me. One night, a night I
shall never forget because it
started me on the wuy to health
and happiness again, my husband
brought in a bottle of Carnol. A,
friend told him that Carnol had
saved his wife's life, so he Insisted upon my trying it Six weeks
after I began taking Carnol, my
weight increased from 93 pounds
to 158, an increase of 65 pounds.
And, am I well these days ?
Every morning I fairly jump out
of bed ready to tackle anything
end every minute of the day is a
joy to me now."
Carnol is sold by your druggist,
and if you can conscientiously say,
after you have tried it, that it
hasn't done you any good, return
the empty bottle to him and he
win refund your money.      8-622

NO WONDER WE'RE SICK
Man drinks strong, black coffee, and
that clogs the valves; he drinks moonshine liquor and that strips the gears;
he gulps down lemonade, ginger ale,
pop. Iced tea and what not and then
wonders why the boilers do not generate heat. If you should take a donkey and put him through a like performance he would be dead In a
month. The simplest and plainest laws
of health are outraged every day by
the average man.
Did Adam smoke? Did Eve wear a
corset? Did Solomon chew tobacco?
Did Ruth chew gum? Did the children
of Israel make for a cafeteria and a
mess of French pastry after crossing
the Red Sea? Did Rebecca eat chocolate bonbons and ice cream and call
for soda water?
Adams was the first man and was
made perfect from head to heel. How
long would he have remained so after eating a mince pie before going to
bed? Suppose he had slept In a bedroom five by seven with the windows
closed down and a steam radiator sizzling. Suppose Eve had been laced up
ln a modern corset worn tight shoes
with high heels, a hobble tig leaf skirt
and sat up all hours of the night, eating chicken salad and Welsh rarebits
nnd trying to keep on four pounds of
dead people's hair.
PRINTING THE TRUTH
It Is not pleasant and profitable always to tell the truth In the columns
of a newspaper. Men who have tried
this heretofore have always come to
grief. Only a few days ago the editor
of a paper In Indiana grew tired of
being called a liar and announced that
he would tell the truth In future; and
tho next Issue of the paper contained
the following items:
"John Bonln, the laziest merchant
ln town made a trip to Belleville, yesterday."
"John Coyle. our groceryman, is
doing a poor business. 111b store ls
dirty and dusty. Why should he do
much?"
"Rev. Stryx preached last Sunday
night on 'Charity.' The sermon was
punk."
"Dave Sonkey died at his home In
this place. The doctors gave It out
as heart failure.   Whisky killed him."
"Married—Miss Sylvan Rhodes and
James Conlin, last Saturday, at the
parsonage. The bride ls a very ordinary town girl who doesn't know any
more about cooking than a Jack rabbit, and nvvcr helped her mother tree
days ln her life. She ls not a beauty
by any means, und has a gait like a
duck. The groom Is an up-to-date
loafer. He has been living off of the
old folks all his life, and Is not worth
shucks.   It will be a hard life."
"Our congressman, a very ordinary
man, and who was elected by accident
was here yesterday. He has very few
friends here now. He promised some
of the voters In this township a piece
of pie in the event of his election, but
had forgotten all about It when the
time came to hand over the little offices."
thought that was an outrage, but said
nothing about lighting elsewhere
which had caused the death of many
noncombatants.
The living need all our care and
worry. One single child fighting disease and hunger Is more important
than all the graves and dead bodies in
the world. You can help a sick child.
You can't hurt or help a dead body. It
the corpses of St. Paul's were good
human beings when alive, no subway,
will bother them. And If they were
bad, no subway can make thinks worse
for them.
Every foot of the earth'B surface Is
a burying ground. Human beings, red,
white, black or yellow, have lived and
died here for a quarter of a million
years at least. Thousands upon thous
ands of millions ot them have come
and gone, more than one for every
square foot of the earth's surface.
Wherever you walk, you walk on a
grave. Wherever you dig, you dig into a grave. All trees and flowers
grow from graves. The earth Is one
great grave, If you want to think of it
as such. It is also one beautiful gar
den, with n few plague spots to be
wiped out, a race to be Improved, and
a real paradise Is its future. Let us
think about the living, flowers, trees
and men; and let the dead live in their
good deeds, rather than in reserved
plots, stone mausoleums, or dismal,
fenced-in burying grounds. The world
would be better If every graveyard
were made into a park and a playground.

Every man should have a graveyard
of his own. In it lie should bury all
of his mean thoughts, his hatreds, liis
animosities and evil aspirations; and
bury them deep so tliat there can lie
no resurrection. If you hear a bit of
malicious gossip, bury it deep. If
you have been nursing a feeling of
hatred toward somebody for years—
then bury It. And when you have finally filled your graveyard with the
worst that was in you—you will find
the world and all that goes to make it
a much better place than ever before.
THE HEART OF A MOTHER
There isn't a real mother in the
world, be she queen or peasant, be
her home a palace or a shack, but who
possesses the mother heart.
It is related of England's queen
that she wept bitterly when the moment came for separation from her
eldest sou, the Prince of Wales, as he
was about to start on a long Journey
to the English possessions.
Thero ls a spark in motherhood that
goes to the very heart of things,
Fathers, however much they feel affection, rarely exhibit this characteristic, But the fact that the mother of
the Prince of Wales is tlle Queen of
England hasn't lessened her love for
her boy. .No mother in any British
possession could have felt that love
more for a lad leaving home than did
the English queen.
Once a year the United States celebrates what ls known as "Mother's
Day," when white carnations are worn
for the mothers who have gone beyond, or red carnations for the living.
It is an attractive custom and probably
will survive. But how much greater
would that love of mother be If every
mother's son remembered three hundred and sixty-five days of the year the
parent who sacrificed so much, endured so much and was willing to give
even her life if it had been needed.
There's more of affection in women
than ln men. Daughters seldom give
mothers much concern. It la the boy
who causes the worry. Maybe that's
why the love of a mother goes out in
such volume to the boy. He needs It
most.

The Cost of the Lowest Bid
The electric equipment of a home to-day, no matter how simple that home may be, is a scientific problem and warrants a few minutes attention and study.
Electricity is constantly making life easier, more
convenient and more comfortable for everybody and,
as the world is grasping the place of electricity in the
home, soon it will be the exception for a house not to
be thoroughly equipped for every phase of electrical
Considering the importance of the electrical equipment of the home, nothing should be left to chance.
The wiring should beright, illumination properly provided for, electrical outlets conveaiently placed and
the materials and appliances should be what experts
have decided is necessary for a safe, dependable and
permanent job. In other words, your equipment ought
to be standard.
Your electrical installation requires a specialized
knowledge just the same as your heating or plumbing
installation. The heating engineer or the sanitary engineer knows better than you do what your house requires. In these cases, if you are wise, you select a
man whom you know to be qualified in every respect
to give you a satisfactory installation at a fair price.
There has to be a man who knows, and the community has to have some means to find him. The man
who knows electricity, so far aB it applied to the modern household, is the qualified electrical contractor,
who is in close touch with the latest practise in electrical wiring.

THE PREMIER LOAF
OF
COMOX DISTRICT
Loudon, England, Is shortly to have
rubber roads. Although this will be
a distinct departure ln road engineering, experiments have been conducted
for many years with a view to discovering an entirely new type of surface which will be equally suitable
for horse and for motor traffic. It the
rubber road justifies all .the claims
made for It, It will not only solve the
noise problem, which has been baffling experts for years, but will reduce
the wear and tear of all forms of road
transport vehicles to a minimum. It
ls also anticipated that the rubbebr
block will give about 15 years' wear,
which Is about double that of wood
paving.
In their endeavor to find an ideal
road surface, engineers have experimented with some novel materials I
which Include such widely different;
substances as Iron, glass, and cork.
Castiron used ln conjunction with concrete, forming what may be described
as an armored road, has been tried
for some time past ln France. A road
of this type has been laid at Lyons
and has proved quite satisfactory,
having carried exceptionally heavy
traffic with a minimum amount of
wear, writes an engineer in the London Dally Mail.
French road-makers have also produced a glass road surface, which has
been found to possess distinct advantages and hard wearing qualities.
The bricks are composed of a material
consisting of waste glass, such as old
broken bottles. This material Is de-
vitrlfled and subjected to a heavy pressure in moulds. The bricks are thus
rendered very tough and extremely
durable, and owing to their gritty
nature are not liable to become slippery through wear or ln wet weather.
They ore, moreover, capable of resisting a crushing strain of four tons to
the square Inch. The cost at the time
the Ilrst glass road was laid was
stated to be 10s. per square yard.
Continental engineers have also obtained good results with cork paving
blocks. They have been found to possess the advantage of being non-absorbent, noiseless, durable, not liable
to expand and contract when laid, sanitary, and non-slippery when worn.
Registration
Of Poultry
"I consider the registration of poultry the greatest development that has
taken place ln connection with the
poultry industry for generations."
This was the remark of Dr. J. H. Grls-
dale, Deputy Minister of Agriculture
for the Dominion ln an address delivered to the Ottawa Poultry Association. He added "It is adding to the
existing standard qualifications the
qualification of production."
Registration is distinct from any
other policy that has to do with high
producing hens. Only those birds laying 200 eggs and over, averaging 24
ounces to the dozen, in fifty-two consecutive weeks In the Canadian Egg
Laying Contests are eligible for registration. Futher It Is necessary that
these birds be typical of their breed
and free from standard disqualifications.
A few birds have already been registered, and those fulfilling the qualifications In the laying contests conducted by the Experimental Farms
during 1921—22, number 398. By
breeds these are made up as follows:
Barred Plymouth  Rocks

The marvels of the interior of the
earth have always been a provoking
mystery to the human race that lived
upon its surface. Some have thought
that It must be a blazing inferno; for
otherwise how can be explained the
hot flaming gases and molten lava of
the volcano; or the steaming waters
of the spouting geysers.
Only a few years ago our most advanced scientists believed the Interior
of the earth to be "an ocean of molten
rock".
A pioneer of the upper Columbia
River Valley was firmly of the opinion that the centre o fthe earth was
hollow, and was covered with forests
and lakes and streams, Just as tho
outer surface Is. In proof of his argument he stated that down In Australia a friend of his found a river flowing "upside down;" for In digging a
well the bottom suddenly fell out, and
he found himself on a river ln a new
world, and If he had not dived quickly,
he would never have got back Into
his well again.
That sounds a bit like sheer Imagination, though it may be as near facts
as they are, as many other theories
ot the condition of the centre of the
Earth.
To-day the scientists say that the
Earth Is "actually solid all the way
through" according to an article ir a
popular Science Magazine.
Dr. William Hobbs, Professor of
Geology of the University of Mich!
sail, guessses that the earth has a
center made up mostly of BOlld iron.
Dr. Henry S. Washington, of the Carnegie Institution of Washington D. C.
claims that the earth has a heart of
"solid bold."
"This Is no fantastic speculation, but
a sober deduction from the moBt critical Investigation ever made ln the
chemistry of the earth's crust. Dr.
Washington, studying over 6000 trustworthy chemical analyses of the crust
of the earth, found that the elements
common in the crust are exclusively
those of lighter weight."
From these deductions It Is easy to
conclude that at tho very center of
the earth we would expect to find the
very heaviest of the elements,—Buch
as platinum, gold, antimony, and osmium, the latter being the heaviest
known substance. If there be a zone
of Iron, It likely comes next, while the
very lightest elements form a layer ot
slag at the surface of the earth.
The veins of gold, and leads of cop
per, etc. are explained by science as
having been "brought upward of scep-
uge of hos mineralized water from the
depths ofthocarth."
One way In which scientists reason
that the substances at the center of
the earth are very much heavier than
those at the surface, ls that the center
portion welgs more than it should.
If It were of the samo composition as
that of the outside. This is found out
by means of delicate scientific Instruments.
If the earth was but a molten mass
having but a thin crust on the outside, it would answer to tho "tidal
pull" as do the waters of the sea, Instead of this, however, the earth responds as if it were a solid ball. More
than fifty years ago Lord Kelvin,
pointed out that the earth was a solid.
"Professor Hobbs explains the origin of such a rigid earth among the
blazing gaseous stars of space, by tbe
new theory called Plan tesmal Hypothesis."
According to this theory, some star,
approaching too near the sun, attract-
ted or pulled out a lot of matter of the
sun. These enormous bunches of
matter gradually collected together by
gravitation, till they became our
earth and planets. Thus the world was
really built of meteors, and that the
heaviest ones formed the mucleus.
Volcanoes are purely local eruptions, caused by n sudden melting of
rock comparatively near the surface
of the earth. This ls due to the puckering up of the surface as the earth
gradually cools and shrinks. The Interior, though not in a molten state,
Is Intensely hot, so that If It were not
for the tremendous pressure of the
outer mass, tho super-heated substance would nt once melt, or turn to
vapor, just as water at the top of a
boiler flies Into steam when pressure
ls released.
Such tremendous advance are be
Ing made In scientific researches these
days, it Is now no longer doubted,
but that those wonderful reservoirs of
heat and treasure lying beneath our
feet will be tapped and drawn upon
Already the heat of volcanoes and geysers is being utilized by ingenious
man, and plans are already being laid
to tap the core of the earth for Its
minerals.

No end of advice is given away free-1
ly to people who have a new baby.
They are told how to wash It, feed It,!
fatten it, make it thin, and how to dls- j
pose of the body afterwards. But;
there is still room for a few hints to
them on how to behave when they
introduce their bundle of squeal and
pins to a bachelor.
The bachelor Is warned by these'
good people not to make faces at thoj
baby, not to kiss it. not to bring its
face too close to his own unless he .
puts a mask on first,   and   not   to
squeeze it in case   and so on. But
this Is really the sort of thing that is
wanted, for the benefit of the parents,
not the bachelor.
Don't ask the young man to ltlss tho
baby--unless you've got a bottle of
Scotch or something like that in the
house to take away the taste afterwards.
Don't ask him which of you the baby is like. He's bound to make one—
or perhaps both of you—an enemy for
life, whatever he says. Besides, all
babies look alike, and they usually
possess the colour and consistency of
a raw pork sausage.
Don't ask him to let the baby look
at his watch. It may be In somebody
else's keeping, and the pawnticket
won't have any wheels in it which go
round and amuse the baby.
Don't tell him that it's Just got a
tooth. Host bachelors are under the
impression that babies are born with
teeth, and besides, all babies get them
sooner or later. If the baby didn't
get any teeth, then you'd have something to shout about.
Don't behave as though yours was
the first baby that was ever born.
You didn't invent babies, even if
yours is the whole wide world. Most
men, excepting the baby's father, prefer pups, rabbits, or racehorses to
babies.
Don't forget that tlio best view the
young man can get of the baby is
when it Is In Its cot, that is, providing
he stays down In the passage while
he looks at it.
Don't, supposing the baby should
yell as soon as it catches sight of him.
immediately jump to tho conclusion
that he is a potential murderer, bigamist, and general dirty dog. Most babies yell all the time, it may not bo intuition.   It may be a pin.
Don't worry if he calls the baby "it."
Perhaps he did'nt know he was a girl,
Don't, in conclusion, show him the
baby at all. He won't appreciate tt.
Show him nurse instead. He 11 be more
at home with her.

CANADA'S COMMERCIAL
FOREST TREES
The demand for something in compact form giving information about
Canada's commercial trees has led the
Dominion Forestry Branch to issue
Circular No. 11, "Commercial Forest
Trees of Canada." It gives a description of the principal species and their
uses and also a list of the accepted
common names along with the botanical names, so that each tree may
be clearly identified in any part of
Canada in spite of the many different
local names in use. Copies of Circular No. 14 will be sent free upon application to the Director of Forestry.

COMOX FALL FAIR
SEPTEMBER 18—19
BARTHELMESS SCORES
NEW SCREEN TRIUMPH IN "SONNY"
llo-Ilo Theatre, Friday and Saturday,
Taking the theme of mother love
from the other side of its unequal perspective one understands the tremendous drawing power of "Sonny," the
new First National attraction starring
ltlchard Barthelmess, that comes to
the Ilo-llo Theatre, Frl. and Sat. It's
a wonder no motion picture producer
has ever thought of It before—this
theme of matured manhood hungering
for the mother love It has never
known.
Sonny Crosby went west In the service. Before he died he made hie buddy, Joe Peters, his double in appearance and speech, promise to take Sonny's place In life so that Sonny's blind
mother would never know of her boy's
death.
Joe bad been a product ot the gutters, a poolroom proprietor In Hobo-
ken before they began singing "Over
There." Sonny came from one of the
most aristocratic families tn Westchester. Back in America Joe was
ready to go back to his old haunts,
but the Image nf that dying boy held
him fast to his oath.
At the Crosby home he brought happiness once more to the blind old lady
and fooled everyone except the family collie. These animals are dog-gone
wiser than some human beings. Then
the vamp came along with a frame up,
the old badger game, against the boy
she believed was Sonny and began to
suspect something was wrong. To
make matters worse Joe had to fall
In love with Florence who, to all outward appearances was his sister.
At the critical stage when It seems
he will be freed of his obligations, Joe
suddenly comes to realize what a home
aud mother love all mean to him.
That's as far as the synopsis can go
without spoiling the story except to
say that the ending Is splendid aud one
that presents as fine a touch of human
understanding as the screen has portrayed.
It would be impossible to improve
upon the realistic,delineation of the
two leading roles of Sonny and Joe
, that Dick Barthelmess gives. This
young star has come to the fore so
fast recently by his intensely sincere
acting that he can be reckoned upon
as among the screen's leading performers.
"Sonny" was adapted from George
Hobart's play and directed by Henry
King, who also directed "Tol'ablo David" and "The Seventh Day."

CONSTANCE TALMADGE
IN "EAST IS WEST"
CHARMS AND THRILLS
AS MING TOY
HLBERT  10**9  LIMITED
Never has Constance Talmadge
been seen to such advantage as in
"East Is West." the First National attraction which Is coming to the Ilo-llo
Theatre, Monday and Tuesday.
This may seem a broad statement
but it Is more than justified by Miss
Talmadge's Interpretation of the role
of Ming Toy. Due credit must go to
Joseph M. Schenck, who plunged on
this production to the extent of buying
one ot the biggest stage successes of
recent years at an enormous cost for
the one star best suited to portray the
leading role.
Miss Talmadge Is utterly delightful
as Ming Toy, the quaint and adorable.
She lends a charm all her own to the
many scenes of delicious comedy.
To see Constance Talmadge as Ming
Toy defending herself, literally tooth
and nail, from the unwelcome advances of the rich Chinese merchant
who would buy her trom the "love
boat" is to be reminded of the "mountain girl" In "Intolerance" In which
Misa Talmadge first distinguished herself conspicuously.
To see Constance Talmadge as
Ming Toy getting acquainted with
American customs, watching the jaz-
zers In Kelly's dance hall, learning
how to chew gum, practising the ancient and honorable art of winking at
a man meaningly yet Innocently or
reading "Three Weeks" when supposedly worshipping before the shrine
of Joss lu to shake with laughter at
her Inimitable perfection as a comedienne.
To see Constance Talmadge fighting
for the man she loves ls to be thrilled
at her success In the struggle.
Most conspicuous in her support is
Warner Oland, famous villain of the
screen, as Charley Young, the Amerl-
nizcd Chinaman who covets Ming Toy,
whose love ls given to Billy Benson,
played by Edward Burns. Others In
the cast are Nigel Barrle, Winter Hall,
E. A,. Warren, Frank Lannlng, Nick
De Ruiz. Lillian Lawrence and Jim
Wang. Sfdriey Franklin dirccted«thc
production.
"East Is West" Is one of the very
notable stage successes of the last'ten
years. With Constance Talmadge as
Its central figure it seems bound to
duplicate this popularity on the
screen.
The date of the Comox Valley fall
fair for the year 1923 has been set for
the days suggested by the Comox Agricultural aud Industrial Association,
these being Tuesday and Wednesday,
September 18th and 19th. This is two
weeks later than the date on which
the fair was held last year and should
be an Ideal time. Interest Is beginning to grow in tiie fair and the year
1923 should see one ot the finest exhibitions ever put on in the valley.
Keen interest Is being displayed In
the added attraction of District exhibits. At a meeting of the United Farm
ers held at Little River on Monday
night the opinion was expressed that
the I.azo section should enter an exhibit exclusively of nny assistance from
the Comox-Nob Hill people. The spirit that has prompted the people of
Lazo lo attempt such a display ls certainly commendable and there Is no
doubt tlmt a splendid display of agricultural produce can be made from
that portion of Comox, but there is
also some doubt as to whether the
handful of farmers In the Lazo District can make a display that will
compare with the larger districts, such
as Sandwlck, Denman Island audi
others. That is one reason why the
committee suggested that Comox, Nob
Hill and Lazo combine their labors in
the District exhibit class. It must also be borne in mind that supplying
produce for exhibition with a district
exhibit should not deter exhibitors
from sending In individual entries.
The management of the fall fair wants
as many Individual exhibits as possible—more than have ever been sent
to any fair. There is another point
tbat must not be overlooked and it ls
this: The Victoria fair is scheduled to
be held during the first week in September, therefore precluding the possibility ot a district exhibit being sent
from Comox to the Capital City, unless someone outside the Agricultural
Association wishes to undertake the
task. The exhibit that went to Victoria last year was good enought to win
a place and an award of $150 but that
Is not good enough, because the total
expenditure on the display was In the
nelghborhool of three hundred dollars. This is one of the reasons why
there Is still some debt against the
Agricultural Association and the secretary has Bald that as far as he ls
concerned there Bhall be no sanction
of a district exhibit for any other fair
until the Society ls free of debt, which
condition is in sight. The Comox Agricultural Society should have a good
year, and if the assistance that was
given last year when it was thought
that there was to be no fair, is forthcoming tliis year from now until fair
time, there can be no doubt as to the
financial standing of the Association In
the very near future. The directors
feel sure with the active co-operation
of the general public the fair In 1923
can be made an outstanding feature of
industrial Comox.
The Dominion Government dredge is
at work In the Courtenay river, removing snags, boulders and deepening the channel for the asler navigation of freight boats that use this wa
tercourse iu their service to the Valley. Last session a sum of five thous
and dollars was voted at Ottawa for
the purpose of clearing the river and
that is the reason that the dredge Is
here now.
NEW OFFSIDE RULE IN
SOCCER IS ACCEPTED BY
ASSOCIATION COUNCIL

yards from the ball.
The proposed change will require
the sanction of the association at Its

of the International board.

The Arist. Fire Marshall is ordering
a general clean-up of all back yards
and lanes whre ashes and rubbish
has been allowed to accumulate during the winter months. The dangerous habit ot depositing ashes and rubbish ln contact with fauces or buildings Is to be stopped. Many fires have
originated from hot ashes dumped
near buildings, and a heap of rubbish
dried by the wind ls always a possible
source of danger from fire.
Roof Fires.
The Increasing number of roof fires
shows the need of clean and well-kept
roofs. Moss should be cleaned off and
roofs repaired where necessary.
Generally.
All waste and inflammable materials arc a hazard In dry and windy
weather. In future the Sanitary Committee have directed that Inflammable
materials and rubbish must be dumped on Tuesdays and Fridays of each
week and burnt under the supervision
of the Sanitary Inspector at the City
Dump.
It ls hoped all concerned will do
their best to keep the City clean and
free from lire hazards and thus maintain the enviable reputation tho City
holds ln the opinion of the Fire Insurance underwriters.
