H was nol a discretionary matter
a question of plaintiff's rlghl,
[affirmed Chief Justice Macdonald. To
deprive the plaintiff of trial of his
cause nl lhe scene of tlle alleged
offence merely on the ground that he
was popular there, was to deprive
liim of a right.
Mr. Justice MePhlllips asked Mr.
Muc.Veil to consider a suppositional
case where such an Issue would go
before a jury composed of Progressives, partial lo the defendant and
his  political views.
With deference to the court, said
Mr. MocNell, (here was no merit In
Ihe supposition ns ihe 200 residents
of Nans lino who had shown Piogres-
slvo sympathies hud become "marked
men" and would be challenged on any
jury summoned, he said.
Mr. Justice Mi-Phillips expressed
himself as of the opinion tliat the
order for tlie change of venue had
heen made in absence of any evidence
wiirrant such a course.
i It would have lo he shown that
the plaintiff exercised and made Use
"of nn unfair influence In the constituency to make thai a valid ground
for a change of venue, said the Chief
Justice. Poularity alone was not
sufficient cause to deprive tlie plaintiff of his right to trial in .Nanaimo.

FRIDAY, JULY 2,  1926.
LEARN THESE This old path of life, which
FOUR WORDS we all must travel, is filled
with bumps and the older we
grow the more we stumble and fall Youth, too,
stubs its toe on these bumps and sometimes falls
into pitfalls that hold them fast all the rest of
their days. Life should be taken seriously, for
we all come to the time when we realize that
existence is not always circus day. It is well
to be an optimist but there are places in life's
journey when we all get up against it.
The heavy burden of responsibility caused
Abraham Lincoln to say to one of his intimate
advisors: "I wish you would give me a maxim
that would help in every emergency." Some
days later the friend returned and laid upon the
president's desk a slip of paper bearing these four
words: "This, too, will pass."
Can you think of anything more helpful in a
time of distress? "This, too, will pass." Don't
nurse your sorrows, your griefs, your misfortunes for they, too, will pass. Sunshine follows
the rain, then why be downcast upon a rainy day?
Bemoaning blighted hopes never got you anything. Cherishing the ashes of shattered
dreams will not help you on the way. When
you stumble and fall over the bumps in life's
pathway, get up and go on with renewed courage
and renewed hope.
No matter how big and how dark the cloud
may seem remember that "this, too, will pass."
think!
HERO WORSHIP No young lady ever lost her
hero because her hands happened to be a little calloused from weilding the
broom or stained from dipping them in dishwater.
No girl ever fell down a lot in the estimation of
her hero because she stayed at home all the afternoon and helped mother with the work, instead
of coming down town and putting on a parade.
No girl ever lost her hero because she made life
more pleasant for dad and smoothed the wrinkles
from his brow and caused him to look forward
to the evening at home with pleasure. Na girl
ever lost her hero because she wasn't an adept
at using all the latest and most popular slang of
the day. There is nothing in slang for a man
to admire, and much less a lady. If the young
lady wishes the company of a true gentleman
she will avoid current slang as she would poison.
No girl regrets losing a hero who in reality was
a common, cheap tin-horn sport, and she had
better be a kitchen queen for dad and mother all
her life than a broken-hearted drudge of a slave
for such a brainless brat a single day. Just because a girl arrives at gray hairs and faded
cheeks in single blessedness is no sign she didn't
have a chance. More likely it is because she
kept posted in market values and refused to sell
her heart and happiness for a mess of pottage.
Cumberland
A NEW DAY The folly of Father's Day was
clearly demonstrated by the flop
which marked the effort of the necktie manu-|
facturers to profit by another useless celebration. |
Father doesn't want any special day set aside for
him. Every day is father's day and he knows
it. He gets his, 365 days in the year and a red
necktie means nothing in his busy life. But if
these special days must be celebrated in the interest of trade, why not have a Radio Fan's Day
and a Permanent Wave Day. We would also
suggest an Old Maid's Day and Bachelor Uncle's
NOTHING LIKE Perhaps the most regrettable
IT USED TO BE feature of the present day
highly organized professional baseball leagues is
the passing of those roaring home-town ball
games of twenty years ago. Those were great
old days when men and boys played the game
for the fun they got out of it, or pride in the
village team. Once in a while we paid a player
for the time he lost at his regular job, but as for
salaries, there was nothing doing. Today, if you
want a pitcher to pitch a game of ball he must
be paid at least $25 for the job and all the rest
of the team must have at least day's wages for
helping to beat the nine from another town. Do
they play as loyally or as earnestly as they did in
the days of the sizzlin' hot old ball game? They
do not. But baseball, like everything else today, is commercialized. And it is not how much
fun we can get out of it, but how much money
can the players make.

CHAPTER  XIX
i
VAMPING
BRUISED and blackened by the
coul, Ken aud Huth called for J
help.   But  no  one  heard.
However, it was one o! their en-"
eiuies who saw. He had climbed a j
trestle to get a better view to locate j
the biding boy and girl. Ho waved
his arms to the other two thugs and i
soon all were swooping down.
Just as the three thugs scrambled i
over to capture Ken and Ruth the on- !
glneer and the workmen wi ked up
to what was going on uml or thoir
noses. They were rough and dirty
bul they were good honest fellows
with families at home. It wa.'i only
an instant when tbe workmen dropped their tasks and ran to tho help
of Ruth and Ken.
The tight as tbe workmen converged
was short and sharp, "Take that,
you hig bruiser!" One of ihe workmen hauled off with a sock on the
jaw to the thug nearest him and seni
him  sprawling.     Tbo  thugs  ran   for
their lives, failing Into ihe motorboat.
Ken and Ruth started away safely
iu  the  ear,  sadder  and   wiser.
There was something on Ken's
mind now and it was tbe first time
he had been alone with Ruth to ask
it.
"Ruth," he begau, "whrfl about
those racing debts that I heard from
Hank?     Are   you   gambling,   Ruth?'
"01    course    not,    Ken.     1    don't
He
must
believe    Ruth.     Yet    he
k 1 ■ 6 w
n    was
noi   the   whole   truth.
"But
Ruth.
tu  any  of  the  others?
"Ken."   sIk
returned   to   him,   "do
Villi
Ihink   it
is  fair  for  me  to tell
what
others
are  doing?"
"■A
ell, yes,
' agreed Ken reluctant-
ly.   '
But   il
all   seems   so   strange.
Someone loses a lot of money gambling. Then comes tbat robbery and
mother luses her emeralds and you
lose your pearls. There must be a
,■ mnectlon,    I   can't   ligure  il   out."
"I can't either, Ken. But you will
never get anywhere by asking me lo
tell on oilier people. Nobody loves
a squealer."
It was Ken's own philosophy, and
he had to admit it and stop. But
his mind was working on other ways
of getting the information. Ruth had
sworn that sbe had no gambling
debts and knew nothing of the robbery. That eliminated Ruth as a suspect. It'left it Up to Vira and Glenn
Buckley on one side aud Rae and
Jack Curtis on the other. Ken was
alone. We were on another mission.
.Might it not be a good plan, he reasoned, for him to take up this side of
the matter and run down whatever
there was to he learned?
Far to the east now on the Island
Craig, Easton and myself were very
busy endeavoring to locate the hangout of the gray racer. Every hour, a
quarter after the hour, messages were
being   broadcast   between   this   point
I we were seeking and tho Scooter
moving up the Sound. Ruth and Ken
were nearing the Club.
"Tell me, Ruth, are Vira and Glenn
and the rest over at the Binnacle?"
"Yes," she said, "But I am uot going lo take you there.    I'm disgusted.
■ I'm  through.
|-"Well,   that's  all   right.     You   can
'set me down here at the end of lhe
I Club."
Ken climbed out and Ruth drove
on to put up the car. But Ken was
not going to waste any time. He
looked about to see that he was not
being watched, then crossed over to
where he had a bicycle, got on It aud
rode off by footpaths where he would
not be observed and followed. The
Binnacle was his destination. He
could trust Laddie to guard the Radio
Shack.
At tbe Binnacle the rest of the
group of young folks had remained
after Ruth left. They had set her
action down to just acting queerly
and let it pass with that.
It was only the day before that at
the Blue Rooster Rae had shown a
decided interest in Glenn Buckley,
much to the embarassment of Glenn
Who was quite fully interested in Vira
and felt no thrill ln Rae's vamping.
At tbe same time there had been occasioned by it a coolness with Vira.
Upon such a mix-up as this it was
that Ken happened as he started to
carefully reconnoitre. He was quite
surprised at seeing Glenn with Rae
aud at the way they seemed to be
getting along. Looking about further
he discovered Vira in another part
of the place, alone for the moment.
Ken took advantage of the fact to

come out into the open.   His excuse
was that he was looking tor Ruth.
"Ruth went away this morning,"
replied Vira curtly.
"You know, Vira, there's something
that's been troubling me, and that Is
about things at the Blue Rooster yesterday. It was that question jou
asked Ruth: 'Did you get it, Ruth?
Will he give It to you?'"
Vira did not deign to say anything.
Ken kept on. "What was It, Vlrii?
Who was lt you meant?"
Vira turned petulantly. But that
did not put Ken off. He was only
emboldened to go further In his question.   "About the races?"
Vira looked up quickly. She knew
he knew—something, anyhow. Her
mind was working fast.
"Oh, Ken. Ruth didn't lose anything, lf that's what worrying you. I
borrowed a thousand dollars on some
of my jewels. But that wasn't sufficient. Then Ruth went to see Mr.
Chittenden, a friend of your father.
She got a loan of another thousand -
for us. There, now, I can't tell you
any more. Whose business Is it. anyway?"
Before he could say another word
Vira was half up the porch. Ken
would have followed her only he
heard footsteps In the corridor nnd
decided to watch from hiding. He
slipped back of a screen.
The quizzing by Ken had got on
Vira's nerves and she took It out on
Glenn Buckley, for, as luck would
have it, she caught a glimpse of Rae
and Glenn having a little jazz in the
deserted victrola room.
Vira waB angry. And here he was
with Rae. He could have Rae. It
did not take Vira long ln this frame
of mind to say as much and angrily
sweep out of the room.
From his vantage point behind the
screen  Ken  caught  sight  of Curtis.
Curtis gave a glance over at the
retreating Vira, on her way to her
car. Then he shot a quick glance at
Rae.   Buckley's back was to him.
Curtis deliberately winked several
times at Rae as he Indicated tlie
direction of Vira. Rae gave an almost imperceptible nod and Curtis
started after Vira.
"So,"   exclaimed   Ken   to   himself,
"that's the way the land lies!"

RASPBERRY AND CURRANT
CONSERVE
The berry season is now at its
height und the housewife who wishes
to have n good stock of preserves on
her pantry shelves for winter use,
will take advantage of any bargains
she can get when she finds her dealer overstocked.
Conserves are always a delicious
adjunct to hot roasts or cold cuts, and
raspberries aril currants are a splendid combination. A conserve made of
these berries together with other
fruits, provides u delightful pungent
flavor wliieh is sure to satisfy the
most fastidious palate. And, in addition, its lovely color helps to make
a well-nppolnted table look more attractive.
Place two quarts of currants in an
enameled ware saucepan together
with n qunrter of a cup of water.
Simmer until the currants nre soft
and Mien pres;' through an enameled
ware colander to remove the skins.
Then put the juice alld pulp into the
enameled ware saucepan again, add
three pounds of granulated sugar nnd
cook for about ten minutes. Tbe
surface ot enameled wnre is impervious to the action of fruit acids, so
there wlll be no danger of the fruit
affecting it or becoming affected by
It. Then add one medium sized pineapple cut Into cubes, one pint of
strawberry rhubarb cut Into small
pieces, and tlie pulp nnd juice of 4
oranges, with just a little of the outer
rind -about two tablespoons. Let
the mixture simmer until it is a thick
consistency. Pour Into jars and,
when cool, seal.

Xot since Confederation has a Canadian government been defeated in
the House. Tlie nearest parallel was
In the Pacific scandal of 1873. That,
too. was on tlie report of a committee
of inquiry aiid an amendment thereto containing censure of tho Macdonald government. A sub-amendment was moved, but a vote on It
was not taken. While the question
was still on the order paper, Parliament was prorogued. The Macdonald
government then went to the polls
and  was di feated.

the growers opening a wholesale and
retail store. Capt. G. R. Bates, secretary of tlie Provincial Potato Growers, emphasised the position of the
dealers as being strongly ln favor of
dealing through the Association rather than individual growers.
Mr. H. P. Allherry, president of the
Fruit and Vegetable Associations, did
not think the growers were ready to
engage In retail trade but thought
the time was ripe to start a wholesale business. Mr. N. A. Pritchard
was also of the same opinion. A general discussion followed and the
opinion of the meeting was that a
wholesale fruit, vegetable and potato
business would be a desirable asset
to the district. A committee, consisting of tho presidents, and one member of each association and the manager of the Creamery, was appointed
to take care of the various commodities and to secure suitable storage

COURTENAY MEN
IN COUGARS' HAUNTS
COURTENAY, June 30.—An unusual experience was enjoyed by two
of Courtenay's business men last
week-end when they got within a
short distance of a fine cougar ln his
natural environments. Mr. F. Field
and Mr. Theed Pearse, while spending last Sunday in the neighborhood
of Campbell River Falls, had sat
down on the bank opposite an island
in the middle of the river. After a
short while the animal was seen to
come out of the bush and carefully
enter the water. After getting Its
feet wet several times the cougar
breasted the stream and swam powerfully towards the bank from which
lt was unknowingly being watched.
Although the large cat was well within range, neither of the men were
armed.

The English football team now
touring Canada had one of the most
strenuous work-outs in the history
of any athletic body. Staying for a
week-end at the Chateau Lake Louise
they had a practise at an altitude
of a mile and a half above sea level,
where the thinness and dryness of
the air had a wonderful effect upon
them. Their captain thought it re-
markable that prize-fighters in training had not utilized the marvellous
properties of this training camp.

was standing on public crossing preparatory to taking passing track, an
automobile, occupied by four persons,
ran into the side of Ihe train, badly
damaging the auto. In another case,
a driver said he saw the train and
heard the whistle signals sounded,
but too late to avoid running into
the side of thc e ■inc. Yet again, a
touring car, travelling about 2**, miles
per hour, ran through the crossing
barr^rs at a public crossing in
Montreal but did not stop. No injuries were reported in all three incidents.

motor-cycles, consisting of 85 cases,
from Armory, Mass., recently arrived in Tokyo, Japan, having come

motor-cycles in Japan is a steadily
increasing one, being a cheap and
convenient method of locomotion and
well suited to the somewhat narrow
roads of that country.
