City Council
Reject Offers
For Property
Tenders Far Too Low Declare
City Fathers—Vancouver Engineer Appointed as Arbitrator for City on Electric Light
Question.
Declaring that the offers received
for tho property advertised tn the
Cumberland Islander last week were
fnr too low, the city fathers unnnl-
moualy rejected the offers made. Tin
properly In question consisted of twe
houses built under the "Helta
Housing Scheme" andthe one Iatel>
occupied by Mr. Whycherly received
a hid from Mr. C. Spooner for the
sum of $500, whilst the other house
nt present occupied by Mr. J. II. Rob
ertson, and a smaller house than tin
Whycherley one, received a tender ot
$575 from Mr. L. IJ. Geidt. Wlthoul
further comment as to whnt action
Is contemplated in tho future, thr
tenders  wore Inid to one side.
A communication was received from
Mr, McDerrutd, the solicitor acting
for the city in the Klectric Light
question stating that after consultation with Mr. Mulrhead and after due
consideration, recommended Mr. A.
D. Creagh, an engineer of great ability, ns tlio city representative on the
arbitration board. In the event of
Mr. Creagh accepting the appointment, tho city clerk was Instructed to
no.ii'y the Cumberland Electric Lighting Company of the appointment.
A little discussion followed tho
reading of a communication from the
Fraternal Order of Eagles .asking
the boulevard In front of the Eagles
Hall be removed. In his comnmniri
tion. Mr. Tappin, secretary of tbe
Eagles, poinled out that when an
entertainment was in progress at the
Memorial Hall, traffic in front of the
Eagles' Hall became congested. The
council could not see their way clear
to remove tlie boulevard nnd suggested thai parking of cars on Fourth
Street, past the Islander office would
be permitted and the city clerk instructed to so notify the secretary ol
the Eagles.
Reports of tho various committees
submitted were satisfactory, but In
the case of the health committee, Alderman Williams reported three new
cases of chicken pox since last meeting.
Under the heading of new business.
Alderman Mumford started thnt he
hail bcen approached by Mr. It. Filberg with reference to the stand of
timber on the lnnd donated by the
Comox Logging Company to the City
for park purposes. Mr. Filberg stated
that this stand of timber was well
protected from the weather and might
reasonably be expected to stand for
all time and it would be a decided
asset to the city park to keep tills
timber intaet.and that fn the event of j
It being logged off would spoil the
beauty of the park. Mr. Filberg suggested that the council take up the
matter with the local member in an
effort to get the government to compensate the Comox Logging Company
for leaving tho timber standing, either
by a money grant or an equivalent
stand of timber elsewhere.
Thc Mayor was of the opinion tha;
the Hoard of Trade and the general
public be approached and their help
obtained in an endeavor to have the
timber lefl  standing.
Alderman Mumford asked permission to introduce a Parks Bylaw al
Uie next regular meeting of the council.
Bills nnd accounts to the amount
of 099.55 were referred to the finance
committee nnd tf found correct ordered to be pnld.
In addition to the Mayor. Aldermen I'a riiham. Mumford, Henderson,

Dr. Blatz said his topic for thai
evening. "The Mental Hygiene of
Success" was an ambitious one. There
are three factors to success, ho said,
•'Intelligence." "Maturity." and "Persistence." It was not his intention,
ho said to be a reformer and he rather startled a number of bis audience
when he made the statement that
"Intelligence had very little to do with j
.success." The records of the mosl !
successful people show very little ol !
the accepted ideal of Intelligence. My
work said the doctor does not lie
with the adult. One can do very little for thorn, but all my interest lies
with thc child.
Everyone Is born with a certain
intellectual capacity and no method
ot shown can Improve or increase j
that capacity. Environment, physical
conditions, tonsilities, syphilis, and
other diseases may influence the direction of Ihat capacity but no known
force can make It less or more.

Intelligence, maturity of thought, ot
physical endowment has very little
to do with success. If it had there
would never have been a Nopoleeon
or a Darwin.
Children are taught to read a hook,
word for word and many adults take
a book and they don't think they
have read it unless they go through

"When we hear the name of 'Forbidden Plateaeu' we think of Indian
legends and no doubt the name was
given to this wonderland by reason
that it was impossible in the early
days to induce Indians from the Comox district to accompany partios
into the interior of the Island. They
could watch their enemies from the
north approaching from the sea, but
were powerless, when Attacked at

In honor of her approaching marriage

Dr. IJlatz described very minutely
the intelligence test brought to America In 1014 by Dr. Terman of Stanford University which was evolved by
Drs. Chas. Ulnel and Simon of France
and stated that by it3 use it was now
possible to gauge the intelligence of
children at a very early age. Problems of adoption can be solved by
these tests said the speaker and cited
cases that had come under his own
observation In Toronto, where a child
was to be put out for adoption, taken
from one of tho clinics or orphans'
home. If the child put under the
test did not measure up to standard,
ho or she was not allowed to be
adopted. Several very amusing case-*
also came to their knowledge during
these tests. On one occasion a rather
silly sentence wns given to a boy,
something like this, "lhe police found
the body of the girl cut up into eighteen pieces nml decided it was a ens?
of suicide." The boy replied, "the
police would." Needless to say said
lho doctor, the boy passed.
Declaring be had no uso for the
present, standardized rules of living

rules only tend to stifle Imagination

THE ROAD TO SUCCESS
Success! It's found in thu soul of you,
And not in the realm of luck!
The world will furnish lho work to do,
But you must provide the pluck.
You can do whatever you think you can,
It's all in the way you view it.
It's all in the start you make, young man;
Vou must feel that you're going to do it.

j western   states   of   America.    On *   of
; its great advantages Is, It Is so easily
! accessible.
!    "One word as to tho men who found
| this  wonderful   plateau.    Firs-,  outstanding  must   be   Clinton   S,   Wood,
; secretary    of   the    Courtcnay-Comov
j hoard of trade, whose one hobby, outside of his  duties  as  city  clerk  o;
j Courlenay, Is the development of th1..-
j wonderland.   He, with three companions,  arrived   on   the   plateau   while
we were there and  it   was easy to
see his enthusiasm for its  development.   He, It was. who. with on: oi
two companions, hiked into this area,
and found this wonderland, and who
blazed the trail so that a pack trail
became poss'ble tin's year.
"Gentlemen, I have no hesitation
In recommending for your consideration, In your next year's vocation
programme, a trip to the Porbitlijen
Plateau."
A. W. Neill, M.P,, who was present,
was not optimistic about prospects
of either the government or the Canadian Pacific Railway Company taking much stock in the park proposition. He had taken the question up
with both and had met with no en
couragement. The CP.R.. he snid.
had enough mountain resorts for Its
use, but he saw a possibility of thu
railway company becoming Interested
in an ocean beach resort, and stressed the value of keeping Long Beach
to the front as British Columbia' i
greatest attraction  in this line.
In   speaking  of  his own  school   at
Toronto, Dr. Blntz said he had  1400
liildren   attending   there   from   two
ears of age up to live years of age
ind he assured his audience that he
'ound the work very pleasant  Inde h
md   could   tell   them   amusing   tale
tfter tale of ilie Inctdenfl thai  arise
n the sudy of the chhlld and Its be
lavior.    if we want our children tn

: k    river,    was   because   they   b id    not    had    a.!

ring  It-  their life, to taste success and  fail

e southwest   standardized education, a standardlz i
We ed mode of life, a standardized pay 1
b'   tor   and a  standardized  ideal  of success
Adresslng   the  "teachertj,   he   said,
you who are teachers and endeavor
to  follow  the  ideals  of education   1
'*'  have  outlined  you   will   endure  di-t-l
' comforts   and   disappointments.     You j
•- j will be up against your inspector and J
may lose your Job, but there must be ,
pioneers in every field.   Canada s ed-,
uc.itionnl system will compare favor- J
ibly   with   any   in the   world,   bul   if
will  be a  much  better  world   when
education is made something thai thc
child wants.
Concluding he snid he would tell
hem a little story, the only story he
had told them that night with a moral.
U a small one-room school, one of
he boys was a regular tough, he
knew hc was tough and he was the
"jane of the teacher's life. One day
the' inspector was expected. The
'ougli hoy on this particular day decided himself thai he would tr.. and
be a better boy, probnbly thinking
that he had not been quite fair to his
teacher. As is usual, the had boy*
and girls were lM" "L t*10 back of
the class and the good ones at the
front. The Inspector arriving and
having heen a teacher himself, went
at once to the back line. Pointing
to the tough boy he said, "now my
boy, what does nine and five make?"
All the class expected the boy to give
the wrong answer, he had never yel
given a correct answer to any of
teacher's questions. Looking straight
at the Inspector he said, "fourteen", j
"Good", safd tho inspector. The tough |
boy was taken by surprise, "flood," J
he said, "hell, it's perfect."
Mr. Oeorge E. Apps, principal of
the Cumberland Public School, in n
very able manner proposed a vote
of thanks to the speaker of the eve-
nlng nnd thanked the executive of:
■he Club for their kindness In inviting the teachers to be present
