At Soccer
Enjoyable Friendly Game Wit-,
nessed by Large Crowd       i
There wns a real good turn-out nl I
the soccer game held on the Recreation Ground, Sunday, when a strung
Powell   River  team  visited   Cumberland.    It is a good many years since
the old Recrealion Ground saw such
a   crowd   as   gathered   together   on
Sunday last to witness a soccer gnme.
It shows Interest  in  the round ball!
game Is not entirely dead iu this dis-1
trict and whilst the brand of hall put '
up  did   not  equal   the   hall   of  other j
days,  nevertheless  it   was  very  en- '•
joyable.    Powell  River had  a slighl
edge anil came out winners by three
goals to one.    The ground  was no:
iu the best of condition as play was
started, many small stones bothering
the players quite a lot.    Both teams
soon adapted themselves to the conditions, however, with tbe result that
the bull travelled from entllo end very
A. S. Jones of Union Bay refereed
and got the game started about two
o'clock, halfan hour late. Cumberland immediately pressed, nnd Sandy
Strang, tli'e Westminster Royal player, who was assisting Cumberland,
coming within an ace of scoring on
several occasions, The half was
fought oul at a good pace, with the
Cumberlauders showing real good
form. The Powell River defence,
however, prevailed and was able to
withstand all onslaughts of the local
forwards. Powell River forward*
tested Watson on two or three occasions, the home custodian proving to
be quite able to handle nil shots directed at him. The persistency oi*
the visitors was refardcd close to
half time when Watson was well beaten. The half ended with the paper-
makers one goal up.
The second half was nearly all
Powell River, tbe locals showing i
great lack of training, with the re- ,
ault that play was mostly confined
to the Cumherland half. During the
second period Jock Campbell scored
for Cumberland and the visitors netted two more, giving them a victory
by three goals to one. The game was
thoroughly enjoyed by the large
crowd present and as stated shows
that soccer is still popular In the district.
The refereelng of A. S. Jones gave
great satisfaction and the following
did duty for Cumberland: Goal, H.
Watson; barks, McFarlane and J. j
Brown; halt-backs. E. Clark, G. Mc- j
Lellanand Amos Farmer; forwards,1
McFarland, 11. Gibson. Sandy Strang,
Jock Campbell and W. Abrams.
Strang, the Westminster Royal play- I
er who 18 working In tbe district at;
present, was a tower of strength to j
the local team and was most unfor- j
tunate In not bagging one or two
goals In the opening half.

Badminton To
Start At End Of
The various 'badminton clubs In
tbe district will be making a start for
the season ac the end of the present
month with probably oneor two new
rlubs coming into existence. At
Campbell River we are told a club
will be formed at a meeting to be
held within the next few days. There
are a number of really good players
up at the River and with the Community Hall having accommodation
for two full size courts a fairly representative club can be formed.
The Whippets, a Cumberland club
also Intend to start as early as possible and there are very many rumours going around that the hall will
lie Increased to take care of three
courts. At the present time the
Whippets boast two courts but bo
many applications have been received for membership tn the club that
it is quite possible that the Band
Hall will be enlarged.
Of course the main place for Badminton for the district will be at the
Imperial Pavilion at Royston, the
home of the Big Imperial badminton
club. In former years this club has
always started early In October but
up to the present time no word has
been sent round Just when play will
A new club might also be formed at
Courtenay, using the Native Sons'
Hall asa meeting place. There Is not
tbe slightest doubt that the popular
indoor game will have a wonderful
season In ibis district.
At the fall fair at Courtenay on
Monday, a pony ridden by a Japanese
boy got out of control and ran into
a crowd of children knocking down
two or three youngsters. Another
Japanese hoy named Taknsasbl had
his collar bone broken. The Injured

NOW that school has started in earnest again
for the fall term and most pupils have been
advanced into a higher class parents and pupils will be a little worried over the outcome and
wondering if a success can be made of the new
term. In many of our schools nowadays there
is too much cramming. Minds crammed with
matter and noi having the remotest idea as to
its value or usi. Page after page is gone over
and learned "by heart". Books gone through ami
laitl aside. Scholars tired and worn out and yet
how little do they know. The most simple, practical things of life they cannot solve; are mere
blanks ami total failures. Minds stuffed and
crammedand yet cannot apply it to anything.
More teaching—causing to know—is what is
wanted, ant! less cramming, and there will be less
worry, less fatigue, less friction and more light
hearts, brilliant minds and successes in life.
BECAUSE the Ily is small and does not roar like
a lion or devour its prey at a mouthful, mankind pays little attention to it. Hut the Ily
is as deadly a foe to civilization asany of the
pests of more fearsome aspect, which man makes
it his business to exterminate. The fly's attack
is insidious ami therefore the more to be guarded
against, lie buzzes into the house, and these
chilly evenings will find him trying his best to get
into a warm kitchen, drops his deadly germs
where they will fertilize and buzzes out again the
following day iu the heat of the sun, to pick up
a fresh cargo.   Swat him, he is your enemy.
IT IS Interesting to note that tbe llrst message of congratulation received by the Bremen came frotn thu
' officers of ttie Mauretanla. In fact, there litis been a
line spirit of good sportsmanship exhibited by both Germans and Hritish in this Intest ocean rivalry. For instance
when tbe Bremen needed tc go into drydoch for a genera]
cleaning up before tier entrance Into transatlantic service
the only (lock in Germans largo enough was occupied bv

wereat I Iverpool nnd Southampton. According to tho
account thai appeared in The New Vork Journal of Com-

been kept seerei. Tli,, German owners, however, otiose
