FIRST WAN H J.
Cumberland, B. C, is basking
in reflected glory, Nursing Sister
Mary Browne, to whom has just
been awarded the first Military
Medal ever given to a woman,
having for several years prior
to the war been mat'-on at the
hospital there.
The information came in a dispatch from London, England,
last evening, which stated that
the London Gazette had just announced the award of military
medals to five women nurses for
biavery and devotion to duty
during enemy airraids on casualty stations and hrspitals. The
following is a brief account of
the incident:
"Nursing Sister Mary Browne
and Mary Lutwick were with the
matron and another sister when
the former was severely injured
and the latter killed. Nursing
Sister Browne attended them,
and Nursing Sister Lutwick
crossed the open bomb-swept
ground and brought help. Both
subsequently returned to the
clearing station and worked many
hours in greatest danger,"
This is just the kind of coolness which her friends would
have expected in Nursing Sister
Browne, who during her connection with Cumberland Hospital
proved herself a wonderfully capable and efficient matron, absolutely absorbed in her work and
endowed with considerable executive ability.
A graduate of Freemantle Hospital, Australia, she came to Vancouver Island in 1908, being appointed to the Nursing staff at
Cumberland Hospital at that time
and the following year being
made matron. This office she
held until the early summer of
1915, when she volunteered with
No. 5 Base Hospital, which we.it
from Victoria overseas under
Lieut.-Col. Hart. While this unit
was awaiting instructions to proceed to Salonica she worked for
a time in the Duchess of Con-
naught's Hospital, pioceeding
thence to Cairo and finally joining No. 5 General Hospital at
the Greek port. At one time in
the following year her health
broke down and she was invalided to Malta, but before No. 5
Hospital left Salonica for England she returned to the unit for
a time, being one of the last of
the original body of nurses when
the hospital was finally sent home.
When her Cumberland friends
last heard from her she was
stationed at Liverpool with the
hospital, but since that time she
must have been sent across to
France, judging by yesterday's
dispatch. One of her most intimate friends is Mrs. W. J.
Fraser, who is station mistress
on the E. & N. at Union Bay,
Vancouver Island. Dr. MacNaughton, who still lives at
Cumberland, was the doctor in
charge of the hospital there when
Nursing Sister Browne was matron, and occasionally he received
news of her movements.
Although primarily devoted to
her profession, Nursing Sister
Browne favored tennis as a recreation, and such tinie as she
spared from her duties at the
hospital she spent chiefly on the
tennis court, Her skill in the
game was by no means small,
and she actually won the Cumberland championship and silver
cup one season.
Nursing Sister Lutwick, the
second Canadian among the five
nursing sisters who was awarded
the Military Cross, is attached to
the Queen Alexandria Nursing
Service. Her next-of-kin is given as C. E. Lutwick, Dartmouth,
Nova Scotia.—From the Colonist
of Wednesday, June 5th.

Good days and bad days exist
only in your own head. The weather ha3 nothing to do with it.
Each day is what you make it
for yourself. Bad weather is only an unfortunate opinion.
It's what you think and feel
about it that makes each day
what it is. You, within yourself, can make each day, every
day, a good day. Put down in
the notebook of your soul the
poet Runeberg's thought, "Each
day is a life."
When you get up in the morning throw back your shoulders,
take a deep breath. Meet the
new day like a man. Say to yourself,
"Another day—another like!"
For all we know, it may be the
only day we'll ever have. Let's
make it the best day we can.
Let's get all the happiness we
can today. Now is the only time
you can control. Yesterday is a
record. Tomorrow is a secret.
Ti.day, is yours, is mine.—WM.
JOHNSTON.
There never did, and there
never will, exist anything permanently noble and excellent in

denial.
THE MOTHER IN SONG
AND STORY.
"MOTHER" has been the subject of endui ing song, immortal
painting, and sempiternal story.
Composers have been inspired
by the pathcs of her function;
artists have selected her as the
symbol of beauty; writers have
extolled the self-abnegation of
her love.
The fame of the Gracchi rests
not alone upon the reforms which
they attempted in rabble-ruled
Rome two thousand years ago,
but history has perpetuated theit
memory because their mother,
Cornelia, beholding the rich jewels of a Roman lady, had called
her sons, Tiberius and Cuius, and,
placing her arms about them,
said' "These are my jewels."
In "Rizpah," Tennyson glor-
lies the patient mother-love that
follows her erring boy even to
the gibbet with extenuation for
his crime. Dazed by grief ovet
the injustice done him, anc
crazed by shame at sight of his
body dangling in full view ol
the passing ships, she had gunt
on dark, stormy nights to "gather the bones of her baby togeth
er and lay liim in holy ground.
Gipsy Smith, the evangelist,
who excels in emotional exhortation, illustrated tho effect which
maternal influence wields ovet
universal sentiment, At the agi
of live the young marauder was
making his escape over plnugheo
■ ibbing an orchard,
tie was captured by the grutl
owner, who demanded an explanation. Knowing the futility
of argument, the culprit sought
mercy by the oft-tiied and always successful plan. Lifting
his appealing glance to the hard
countenance above him, he said,
in a wee, timorous voice, "I
havn'tany mother." The hand
of the farmer relaxed its grasp;
and tightly clasping an apple in
each hand, the tiny miscreant departed.

CANADA faces the gravest crisis in her history. Four years of war have taken from
the Dominion a heavy toll in talent and labor, yet despite the shortage of man
power, our Allies still depend on Canada to maintain her own fighting forces at full
strength and to increase her exports of food and war materials, so vital to them, and to
the successful prosecution of the war.
Every ounce by which Canada can increase her food production and every ounce Canada
can save in her food consumption is needed for export to the Allies.
Should the war continue for another year, food cards and a rationing system may have to
be instituted.   It is the duty of Canada to be prepared for whatever situation circumstances
may force upon her.
It is quite probable that before the war is won our Government may have to place
restrictions upon the occupations in which men and women may engage. In such an
event the Government wishes to be in a position to render all possible assistance in
keeping our population usefully and profitably employed.
Registration Day, Junr 22nd
These condition* point to the necessity^ Canada
knowing the exa<5t capabilities of her men and
women at home.
AH persons residing in Canada, male or female,
British or alien of 16 years and over, will be required
to register on June 22nd and truthfully answer the
questions set forth upon the registration card.
It is not the Government's intention to conscript
labour in any form, but to assist in directing it wisely,
to that every available unit of human energy may be
utilized to the best advantage.
The information procured through registration will
be used—as an aid to the Military Authorities in pro*
curing the men necessary to maintain "Canada's
First Line of Defence"—to mobilize all units of avail*
able labor in the Dominion and direct them from less
essential to more essentia) occupations—lo establish
and intelligently administer a system of food rationing
should that become necessary.

The   SERVICE   of   the
TELEPHONE
Dependability is the result of equipment, service
and organization. These three essentials make the
telephone what it is. In few lines does development
and improvement take place moi e constantly than in the
telephone business, and every improvement tends toward a better utility for the use of the public.
Service depends on organization and both in the
measure that the needs of the community are recognized.
The British Columbia Telephone Company being owned
and managed by Britsh Columbians, close touch is always had with all parts of the territory. The aim is to
have the telephone as serviceable as possible, to always
meet what demand may be made upon it.

THE ISLANDER. CUMBERLAND, 8.C.
OF DISALLOWANCE
Ottawa, June 4,—The Dominion Government has disallowed
the act passed by the British Columbia Legislature in 1917 amending the Vancouver IslancpSett
lers Rights Act, 1904. The principal ground of disallowance is
that this legislation interfered
with Dominion policy and affected the title to certain lands on
Vancouver Island conferred by
the Province on the Dominion,
as v ell as the title granted by
the Dominion to the Esquimalt
and Nanaimo Railway Company.
Purthi r, it is claimed, the legislation so affected the present
holders in regard to what had
been conferred on them by the
Dominion that, for the protection of the Dominion interests involved, it was deemed necessary
to exercise the power of disallowance.
Railway belt lands on Vancouver Island and the mineral rights
, to such lands are in question in
the disallowed legislation. The
disallowed act of 1917 amended
the 1904 statute in such a manner
as to. extend the delay within
which application could be made
by persons who had been in occupation if the railway belt lands
prior to 1883 for crown grants to
which the 1904 act declared them
to be entitled to. The effect of
the 1917 statute, it is s.tated here,
was to open the door to all persons who had been in occupation
before 18S3 and had not made
application under the statute of
1904 to come in and claim certain lands which were vested in
the Esquimalt and Nanaimo
Railway Co. under a grant from
the Dominion to which they had
been transferred by the Province
for the purpose of granting them
as part consideration for the
construction of the Esquimalt
and Nanaimo Railway.
Squatters' rights to the coal
and other minerals underneath
the lands aie likewise involved
in the legislation.

BOYS'   SUIT
SPECIALISTS
We ask you to put our claim to the test, as we feel sure we can
fit most ef the boys in town with a suit they will justly be proud in.
Coppley Noyes & Randall, of Hamilton, one of the best Houses in
Canada for "Good Goods" has just delivered our second shipment of
the swellest range of " Boys' Nifty Suits " it has ever been our
pleasure to open, hence our confidence in our claim.
This shipment contains about one thousand dollars' worth of
Boys' Special Suits, and every suit has an individuality all to itself
for the "little man" who will wear it, and which will make him like
his Dad.
For Big Boys we have a choice of suits that will leave nothing
to be desired; the cloths are excellent, the style up the minute, and
you will find the price moderate compared with the quality. The
Home of Boys' Clothes! Yes, that is what we are after, and which
we intend to be known in the future, and, if the goods mean anything, we are there already.
We invite every boy in town to come in and see our " New
Line and get acquainted, as he is sure to come in the end—if he
wants smart up-to-date Clothes.
SPECIAL   LINES
Ladies' House Dresses
We have a smart showing of New Lines in House Dresses. We
think it is the best assortment we have been able to get for some
time and would ask your inspection.
White Shoes
We have a full line of White Shoes for' ladies, girls, boys and
children, and have had constantly to reorder some sizes. When
in need of shoes for summer, we ask your inspection of THE
KAUFMAN BRAND, which we consider one of the best on the
market today. ^Should we be out of your size, we can get in four
days.
>
Trunks and Suitcases
Our stock of these is very complete, with such an assortment
that you will have no difficulty in making a good choice.

a new " Hobart" electric Coffee Grinder, the best made, and can

difference in flavor between fresh ground coffee and coffee that has
probably been ground from one to six months before. Prices are
