New Matrimonial Problem
For Modern Young Lady
IN NEW LOCATION

Is it possible for a girl to marry | logical  situation  that  ls  both truly
one man and, after the marriage ceremony, awake to the realization that
she Ib the legally wedded wife of another?
In other words, Is It possible for
a girl ot today to be tricked Into
marrying the wrong man with her
eyes wide open?
Marriage experts, that ls, men who
are versed ln the laws governing matrimony, say that such a possibility exists, and their opinion, it true, will
have a revolutionary effect on the institution of marriage.
Such Is the problem faced ln "Head
Winds," the Universal-Jewel feature
co-starring House Peters and Patsy
Ruth Miller, and which will play tonight (Friday) and Saturday at the
Ilo-llo Theatre. This question Is
promised   to   vividly  Illustrate  in  a

are not sound; It does not even at
tempt to offer a new set ot laws governing matrimony. But, through a
clever manipulation of the matrimonial services, it illustrates in an impressive manner a fallacy by whlcn
it ls Indeed possible for one person
to be tricked into becoming the legal
mate of another.
AUTO CAMP VISITORS
COURTENAY, July 7.—The following autolsts have recently visited
Courtenay and have taken advantage
of the excellent accommodation provided at the Tourists auto park.

BUSH FIRE CAUSING
FEARS IN COURTENAY
COURTENAY, July 7.—The bush
Are between Courtenay and Cumberland, in the neighborhood of the
Gwllt Lumber Co-b operations, has
been causing a good deal of concern
during the last few days. On Monday and Tuesday all available men
were taken from Courtenay and vicinity to help check the conflagration
which was assuming alarming proportions. The Are made a suprls-
ingly quick start directly after the
heavy rain ot Tuesday of last week
and the dry weather since then has
not helped the situation. So long as
there ls an absence of wind it Is not
likely that the fire will spread with
any quick rapidity; but there ls, of
course, no knowing when the wind
wlll arise.
Hiss Miller I'tays Shrew
In "Head Winds," Patricia Van
Pelt, Miss Miller's role, Is a gifted shrew of the upper aristocrats of
the first order. Through willfulness
and stubbornness sbe has talked herself Into marrying "Into her class," a
typical social satellite. Through a
clever, though a simple and effective
ruse, her two brothers prevent this
rash act* of their sister's, and, as the
result of their ruse Patricia finds herself the legal mate of Peter Rosslyn.
played by House Peters.
But the trick marriage Is only one
of the features of the novel situation
of "Head Winds," adapted from the
widely-read Saturday Evening Post
story of the same name, by A. M. Sinclair Wilt. The rest of the story revolves around the taming of this selfsame shrew of the sea. For once having married her, even though it Is
aboard bis yacht, Peter Rosslyn "kidnaps" and carries her away to sea
aboard his palatial yacht, of which he
himself Is the captain, manned by a
crew of grim appearing Orientals.

LETTER IN FRENCH
STUMPS CITY COUNCIL
EXPENSIVE OUTING
FOR BLOEDEL LOGGER
COURTENAY, July 8.—It was an
expensive outing for Ole Beckman of
the Bloedel camp on Saturday last;
and during the week end he found
himself before the Courtenay Magistrate pleading guilty to a charge of
being under the Influence of liquor.
"Twenty-five dollars and costs,"
said Magistrate Hames — and Ole
'came through' with the money.
Only one communication was before
the council meeting on Monday even-
ing, and this was ot such a nature
that the clerk, the Mayor and the aldermen could make neither head or
tails of it. It was ln French. How
ever, the. city clerk and Alderman
Potter, with what little assistance the
Islander reporter could give, finally
managed to decipher enough of the
epistle to find what It was all about,
whereupon it was promptly ordered
filed* as It was from a flrm of badge
and emblem makers in Quebec. The
council was not interested ln such
things.
Future writers to the council, If
Ihey wish to receive Its consideration,

Alderman Potter also reported that
the Hospital and the ratepayers ou

seven barrels of road oil, and tbe
ratepayers on Maryport Avenue had
purchased six barrels which they
wished to have spread on their respective streets. He thought It only
fair that the city should stand thc
expense of spreading the oil and accordingly had detailed two men to da
the work, which Is now nearly completed.

The average criminal is a criminal because
he wants money and is too lazy to work. To
preach to him is the height of folly. His conscience is immune from attack. But to touch his
pocket is to get at his soul. Such a one is willing
to pay the prison price for one crime if he thinks
he can make big money by his next. But to show
him that seven years of crime netted only $100
nerves over trifles.

Vf/hat is it that goes over the
sea, under the sea and never
touches the sea?"
Apropos of what has gone before
and to complicate further tbe pu/.zte,
another question is suggested, "Is
it possible to furd the ocean in a
Ford?"
The correct answer to the second
query is: "Yes and no."
And now, "Let there be light!"
The thing that goes over the sea,
under the sea and never touches the
sea, is—nh, not an egg in a duck's
stomach, but, a Ford ear in the hold
of the S.S. "Mclita."
So that, in a way, it is possible to
ford the ocean in a Ford, and the
principals concerned in (lie performance of this unusual feat are the
family Fox, Mr. and Mrs. C. J. and
smali daughter. Miss Josephine, the
S.S. "Mclita" anil the Atlantic ocean.
The family are from Parkstone,
England; the S.S. "Melita" is a
Canadian Pacific liner plying between Antwerp, Southampton, Cherbourg and Montreal; and thc Atlantic is, of ('curse, where everyone
suspects it is.
It seems that thc Foxes, after
motoring all over the British Isles,
not once but several times, since
they covered 17,000 miles all told,
and we too are all told that Great
(I)  Ford ear reachlnr aklp an Oral let
".hoard    ahip.      (3)    Canadian    Pacific
Britain and Ireland couid be fitted
into a small corner of one of our
larger provinces, though we find it
somewhat difficult to relay that information to a Britisher. Anyway,
to get on with the story, this English family conceived the happy idea
of conquering other lands in their
veteran car, and keeping their
triumphs within the Empire, chose
the Dominion of Canada as an aid
to victory.
Half way across the broad Atlantic the news of thc impending landing was wirelessed to Canadian Pacific headquarters in Montreal. That
company immediately got in touch
with the Ford Motor Company, of
Canada, Limited, of Ford, Ontario,
and when the ship docked special
representatives of the car company
were on band to meet the invaders.
A small army of Ford mechanics
quickly assembled the car, the customs men were dealt wilh, a license
procured and the   3,000   mile   trek
f  trip     (5)   Tin eratad or belai _
l.incr   Melita which  carried  tht car.
across continent from Montreal te
Vancouver begun all in the same
morning. Their routing will be
north to Ottawa and on to Winnipeg via North Bay. From Winnipeg to the coast they do not anticipate any difficulties, as they are confident that their car will overcome
the best and the worst in the way
of mountain roads that the Rockies
can offer.
Their advance will be considerably
facilitated by favors from the car
company. Letters to Ford" dealer!
clear across the continent have been
given them. Repairs and incidental!
will be supplied gratuitously and detailed directions thrust on them. All
because they happei to be the first
party from across the water to bring
their own Ford to tour In. We wonder if we would have the same luck
if we landed in England with oul
Daimler or Sunbeam. We are not
certain for nothing is quite certais
of course, but we have a fair idea.

So that, in a way. it is possible to
ford the ocean in a Ford, and the
principals concerned in tlie performance of this unusual feat are the
family Fox, Mr. and Mrs. C. J. and
small daughter. Miss Josephine, the
S.S. "Melita" and the Atlantic ocean.
The family are from Parkstone,
England; the S.S. "Melita" is a
Canadian Pacific liner plying between Antwerp, Southampton, Cherbourg and Montreal; and thc Atlantic is, of course, where everyone
suspects it is.
It seems that thc Foxes, after
motoring all over the British Isles,
not once but several times, since
they covered IT.Oinj miles all told,
and we too are all told that Great

Britain and Ireland could be fitted
into a small corner of one of our
lnrger provinces, though we find it
somewhat difficult to relay that information to a Britisher. Anyway,
to get on with the story, this English family conceived the happy idea
of conquering other lands in their
veteran car, and keeping their
triumphs within the Empire, chose
thc Dominion of Canada as an aid
to victory.
Naif way across the broad Atlantic the news of thc impending landing was wirelessed to Canadian Pacific headquarters in Montreal. That
company immediately got in touch
with the Ford Motor Company, of
Canada, Limited, of Ford, Ontario,
and when the ship docked special
representatives of the car company
were on hand to meet the invaders.
A small army of Ford mechanics
quickly assembled the car, the customs men were dealt with, a license
procured and the   3,000   mile   trek

given them. Repairs and incidentals
will be supplied gratuitously and detailed directions thrust on them. All
because they happen to be the first
party from across the water to bring
their own Ford to tour In. We wonder if we would have the same luck
if we landed in England with oui
Daimler or Sunbeam. We are not
certain for nothing is quite certaii
of course, but we have a fair idea.

"CONTRABAND" A
NEWSPAPER TALE
A newspaper story with a real news
paper flavor is assured ln "Contraband," a Paramount picturization of
the novel by Clarence Budlngton Kel-
land produced by Alan Crosland with
Lois Wilson, Noah Beery, Raymond
Hatton and Raymond McKee featured
in the principal roles.
The story centres around a smalltown newspaper inherited by a young
college girl. A real newspaper office
was erected for scenes in the picture at Paramount's West Coast
studio with a press of 1500 copies an
hour capacity and a stock of type
sufficient for the needs of any rural
paper and with the aid of two journeymen printers an edition of thc
Glbeon Free Press was printed right
before the all-seeing eyes of thc
camera.
All the men connected with the
filming of "Contraband" have had
newspaper experience. Jack Cun
nlngham. who adapted the story to
the screen, Crosland, the director, and
others.
Lois Wilson is the girl editor in the
picture who combines sleuthing with
her newspaper work and stirs up no
end of excitement for herself. Beery
has a heavy role of a crooked deputy
sheriff. Hatton furnishes much of thc
comedy In the production and McKee
is cast as an absent-minded and self-
centered professor hired to dig up
stories and write editorials for the
Free Press.
"Contraband" will be shown next
Wednesday and Thursday at tiie Hollo Theatre, Cumberland.

Says Eleanor Boardman
AN HONENT JURYMAN
"Look here." said a young juryman
after the Jury had retired, "If I understand aright, the plaintiff doesn't
ask damages for blighted affections
or anything of that sort, but only
wants his presents back."
"That's so," agreed the foreman.
"Well, then, 1 vote we don't give
him a cent." said the young juryman
hastily. "If all the fun he had wlta
that girl didn't cover the amount the
presents coat him. It was his own
fault. Gentlemen, I courted that girl
t once myself."
If you believe that men's styles in
clothing are more comfortable and
healthful than feminine styles, you're
all wrong.
That is. according to Eleanor
Boardman, the heroine of the Motro-
Goldwyn-Mayer production, "The Way
of a Girl," coming to the Ilo-llo Theatre next Friday and Saturday.
For Eleanor says she knows what sin*
la saying and can prove It. for didn't
she wear masculine clothing for several weeks while impersonating a boy
In "The Silent Accuser." hor previous
picture, anil doesn't she know the
above theory li all wrong?
"Women are always being criticized
for their foolish styles," Miss Board-
man says.      "I found by comparison
that they are not only more comfort
able but much more healthy.'
"Women's dress," she says, wins
in the following points:
1.' Man's collar Is too tight, ami
he adds to Ihe discomfort of It by
clinching a necktie round his throat.
2. Male Coats are much tighter,
and vests are almost as bad as the
feminine corset, which now Is almost
entirely In the discard anyway.

The comedy sensation of the screen. Thomas Brandon wrote the play almost forty
years ago and it has been convulsing audiences the world over ever since. For three
years every comedy producer in the industry has been bidding for the screen rights to
this farce masterpiece. Then finally the Christies, the most capable of all comedy producers, were entrusted with the delicate undertaking.
The results are a revelation. Aided by a brilliant cast and a thoroughly capable director the producers are now ready to present to the world the finest, funniest comedy the
screen has ever known.

NO STAMPS NEEDED
ON SMALL CHECKS
Much of the annoyance that has
been caused tbe public by the affixing of stamps to small cheques will
soon bo eliminated. Under the regulations that have been enforced up
to this time a two-cent excise stamp
bad to be affixed on all cheques, postal orders, and other negotiable paper
when the amount was up to fifty dollars, wilh an additional two cents for
every fifty dollars over that amount.
Beginicg on July 1 there will be a
modification of the law. From that
date all cheques, money orders, travellers' cheques, postal notes and Hie
like will not require a two-cent stamp
to be affixed when the amount doei
no! exceed five dollars.
lt was on sucli small cheques and
orders that the public felt most keenly the annoyance of the Stamp Aci.
The great mass of people today use
cheques In place of cash, and It Is
recognized as a usual thing to pay
for small amounts of a dollar and
over through the bank. Consequently the levy under tho Special War
Revenue Act on individuals making
such petty payments was disproportionately high, and was the ground of
much complaint. A two^cent tax on
! every fifty dollars ot value ln a
j cheque was not considered so un-
j reasonable.
!    There are several    other    amend-
j meiits  to  the  Special  War  Revenue
I Act, but this is the one most general
interest.
All cheques over live dollars and
1 up to fifty dollars shall continue lo
: bear    a    two-cent    excise     stamp,
i Cheques over fifty dollars and up to
$2500 shall bear a two-cent stamp for
every fifty dollars In value or fraction    thereof.       Cheques    exceeding
$2500 shall bear excise stamps of '.ne
value of one dollar.
The definition of a "cheque" has

Young Jack was talking to the new

e..ed her critically for a few moments, then looked up and said:
"So you're my grandmother,, are
you?"
"Yes, dear. On your father's side,"
remarked the old lady smiling.
"Well, you're on lhe wrong side;

Electric power is merely a meant!
of converting mechanical power Into
a convenient medium for transportation; where, at the point of delivery.
It Is easily reconverted into the original mechanical power, with little
loss and maximum convenience. Electric power Is simply the answer to
an otherwise difficult transportation
problem.
All power must be controlled. Thu
wind, the water flow, when properly
controlled and regulated, become constructive forces; otherwise, they become destructive forces. And, so il
Is with electric power. Unlike any-
other form of power, it Is the most
simple to harness. Whether generating, transporting, or applying, a
means of control must be provided.
It Is in this sense tllat control bears
a broad and close relation to nil
electric service.
From lhe tiny acorn grows the towering oak. If we would know the
secret of the tremendous and rapid
growth of electric service, we need
not look for it in the gigantic tower-
of 220,000 volt transmission systems,
nor ln the building of the 50,000-ktto-
watt turbo generator sets, but rather
ln some small, trivial thing, such as
it push button or a snap switch, as
the seed of this growth.
This simplicity of control, combined
with the ease of transportation, ha:.
truly made electric power a universal
servant. It is easily delivered as o
commodity to our work shops, laboratories, highways, office buildings and
homes, where it is conveniently adapted to our work, and lightens our
burdens.
Control, therefore, holds a vital relation to the general application ol
electric power. Were this uot so.
then we would expect to find the application of motors for power drives
confined to large centralized units in
much the same manner that steam
engines were formerly applied. In
fact, this is exactly what happened in
the early days of the application of
electric motors.
Primarily because of the convenience and economics of delivering electric power, the steam .engine was
taken out and a motor put in its place
Very little attention was then placed
on the control of tbe motor, for most
anything would do, since the practice
of delegating the responsibility ot
starting and stopping the motor to
some one person was continued in tlie
same manner as it was customary to
have a stationary engineer In charge
of the steam drive. Accordingly, the
starting and stopplng'of these drives
was treated as something of an engineering feat. The control, therefore, was usually a hand-starter, designed to be operated by a resposible
person. Simplicity in operation was
nothing particularly in Its favor, since
each plant had a specially trained employee to operate It. To a certain
extent, It is quite possible that the
complexities and necessary precautions actually enhanced its value, for
this fitted in with the viewpoint that
the starting and stopping of the motor was an engineering performance.
The electric motor apparently inhor
lted these conditions, along with hundreds of feet of line shafting, whirling pulleys aud  gliding belts.      To
look down the aisle of an ordinary
machine shop was to gaze upon a
labyrinth of whirligigs. Tliis, with
the noise, dimness of light and sliift-
ing shadows, seems to have been i
far step from the present modern,
well-lighted, clear ceiling factory
building, and yet it was only yesterday.
The Individual motor drive has produced tliis rapid and marvelous
change. True, the motors have experienced a marked improvement iu
weight, materials, and efficiencies
ovef* the past two decades, but this
can be looked upon more as a resuli
than the cause of the Individual motor
drive. If we would know the cause.
we must go back again to the pusli
button idea, for it lias been tlie push
button starter that has taken tlie difficulty oin of motor control anil made
it so simple us to be well within thc
scope of the intelligence of all classes of labor. No longer is it necessary lo delegate this to a specially
trained employee. No longer Is it
necessary to have a centralized power
drive. If the manipulation of motors
Is as simple as liirnnlg a light on and
off, then, surely, they can be placed
anywhcie as ma.,- best effect economy
The change lo Individual drive was
not made all at once. The line shaftings were lirst divided Into smaller
groups and then sub-divided again
until ibis sub-dlvlslon, curried to tb"
Ultimate, finds an individual motor
drive to eacli unit machine. .Machines no longer must be installed In
well defined lines to follow a given
line shafting, but can now be situated
anywhere on a floor plan best suited
lo the fabrication progress of the ma-
erlal.
Like a pendulum gathering momentum, tlie individual motor drive has
added impetus to the use of electric
motors. Its swing has been fai
reaching, effecting all Industry, from
center to circumference, bringing advantages of untold value. All this
has been the result of control.
The balk of motors manufactured
today Is ten horsepower and under
showing bow universally adaptable
is tlie individual drive.
The machine tool builder today is
looking not only upon the motor as a
part of the machine, but also the control. The tendency Is to make the
machine a self-contained unit with
motor and control. The old way was
to mount tlie control on the wall or
building column; the new way is lo
mount it directly on tlie machine, la
this manner the machine Is delivered,
wired complete with motor, starter
and push buttons; it only being *ieees
sary to attach the power leads to the
machine to be ready for business.
We have now reviewed the relation
of control to the generation, transportation, and application of elcctr:
power. It ls to the latter that con
trol bears the closest relation, for ill
tracing the trend of power motors
we find it iusperably linked to Uie
controller, until today this union lias
become so firmly knitted as to be
considered as one.
Space does not permit the telling of
new fields of endeavor opened to motor application by the ingenuity of
control. All these things refute the
general**impression tliat control la a
necessary accessory io the motor.
Just the opposite is true, for Ihe controller Is the very heart of every motor application.

CANADA BUYING
LESS U.S. GOODS
PRINCE ACCEPTS
INVITE TO NIPIGON
Canadian purchases in the United
States again show a decline. In the
twelve months ending May, imports
from the United States were |51l,-
UOO.OOO a drop of $7,000,000 as against
the year ending .May, 1924, Exports
to the United States were $523,000,000
a decline of $5,000,000 from tlle year
previous. Canadian purchases In
the United Kingdom were $152,000,000
practically Hie same figures as for tbo
year before. Exports to tlle United
Kingdom were $391,000,000 an Increase of $9,000,000 over the previous
year.
That the Prince of Wales will again
be a visitor to Canada lu the fan, In
hinted In a communication from ono|
of his secretaries to Neil .McDougall.
of Nipigon, Ontario, sportsmen's representative w the Canadian" National
Railways. It appeal's tllat .Mr. .McDougall sent an Invitation to. His
Royal Highness to take part In n
moose hunt which takes place In th'.*
fall, and the reply states that the
Prince iff Wales wlll be delighted to
join tlie hunt and that he would cer-
lainly call at Nipigon on his next visit
to ills ranch, which lie hoped would
be "next autumn." The letter concluded with a jocular remark Ihat the
prince trusted Mr. .McDougall would
not endeavor to "marry bin) off." This
has some reference to an old joke existing between them. .Mr. McDougall
became acquainted with the Prince
of Wales about live years ago, when
the heir to the throne received his
first lessons In catching the speckled
trout In the Nipigon river.
