Rumour of Important Change
in Canadian Collieries Limited
Special Dispatch to The Islander.
London, Dec. 5.—The Times says a scheme of reorganization of the Canadian Collieries (Dunsmuir)
Limited has been drawn up and that the whole property
has Virtually handed over to the bondholders. A meeting for the purpose of sanctioning the deal will be held
on January 19. The Times adds: "To what extent the
company will be able to pay interest on its debentures
will depend upon its ability to sell the coal it can produce. The company has plenty of coal, but the difficulty is to sell it in sufficiently large quantities. Trade
on the Pacific will no doubt spread."
Special Dispatch to The Islander.
Victoria, Dec. 6.—The Victoria office of the Canadian Collieries has no statement to make on the London
Times article owing to the absence of General Manager
Savage. It was known in Victoria, however, that some
changes were contemplated.
Paris, Dec. 5.—Field Marshal Sir Henry Wilson, chief of the
British $mperial staff, is here in response to an urgent summons
to consult Marshal Foch. The belief is growing that coercion is
the only argument likely to make an impression upon the Germans
and induce them to sign the protocol of the peace treaty which will
carry the pact irito effect.
It is said that this conclusion was reached at a secret session
of the supreme council yesterday at which Marshal Foch was
present. That ample means exist to carry out any ultimatum, the
commander demonstrated at the meeting, it is understood, as he
undertook to put into execution the plan drafted last June, the
threat of which brought the German envoys scurrying to Versailles.

Believes  It Will Eventually
Be Adopted.
In an Interview recently given at
Vancouver, Gen. Sir Arthur Currle
gave It as his opinion that compulsory
training would eventually be adopted
in Canada, possibly similar to that in
vogue ln Australia. During the interview he said:
"Although the time is not at hand
for the adoption of any scheme of
compulsory training, it is bound to
come later," he said. "It is the only
fair and democratic way in which any
extensive miiftla scheme can properly
be carried out." He observed that at
the present time, the people of Can- j
ada would not be ready to accept such
a plan, and intimated that the creation
of a universal  service  league
ment concerning the reorganization of
tlie militia beyond repeating that
everything would be done to perpetuate tlie overseas units and at tiie same
time look after the interests of the old
militia regiments. He intimated that
the 72nd Battalion would come under
Its own militia unit; the 7th Battalion
and 29th Battalion and the Oth D.C.O.
R. would be united, while the 16th
Battalion, It was suggested, might replace the Bath and 88th Regiments
in Victoria. Similarly the 47th, 54th
and 102nd Battalions would in all likelihood amalgamate with the various
militia regiments throughout the province.

game laws of the province will lend

London, Dec. 5.—Georges Carpentier, the French champipon,
is also champion of England. He> won that title last night when
he knocked out Joe Beckett in the first seventy-two seconds of the
first round of what was scheduled as a twenty-round bout for the
championship of Europe.
According to the official timekeeper seventy-two seconds were
all that were necessary to decide whether Carpentier or Beckett
[should meet Jack Dempsey, the American heavyweight, for the
championship of the world next June.
From the moment the referee called time, Carpentier had the
battle entirely in his own hands. Beckett never had a. chance of
hitting the agile Frenchman, who landed his bluws with enormous
strength whenever he felt inclined.
Amid absolute silence most of the spectators could hear the
terrible crack of the swing that put Beckett to sleep.
There was a roar of cheering as Carpentier assisted Beckett
to his corner, where the Englishman opened his astonished eyes
and saw his opponent being carried on the shoulders of enthusiasts
around the ring and smiling happily.
The contestants presented a notable difference in appearance
when they stripped and were introduced. Beckett was swarthy
and muscular while Carpentier was white-skinned with a slight
figure. Carpentier looked about Trim as though accustomed to his
surroundings, while Beckett seemed somewhat nervous.
The speed jfith which the contest was decided is proving one
of the marvels of ring history. It had been freely conceded that
the bout would not go the full distance, and the majority of sporting opinion was in favor of Beckett finally winning. There were
some who figured that the Frenchman had a good chance, but no
one ever anticipated that he would prove himself the better man
in so short a time.
After he had thoroughly recovered from the effects of the
blow which put him out of the running for the world's championship, Beckett expressed his surprise that Carpentier should put
him out so speedily, but admitted that the better man had won.
By winning this battle, Carpentier now has a clear road to
the match with Jack Dempsey for the championship of the world,
which is scheduled to take place next June. In view of the speedy
manner in which he disposed of Beckett, English followers of the
ring are picking Carpentier to defeat the American.

Music and Photoplays
Where many piano teachers fail
with pupils whose interest is tepid or
, whom circumstances have made combative, is in not playing sufficiently
for such pupils. A girl who had made
almost no progress was brought to the
studio of a prominent teacher for him
to see how tar she was deficient in
musical capacity. Enquiry elicited the
fact that nhe hud been under the one
teacher for two years and had never
heard the teacher play. What could
lessons moau In thc way of music to
such a eblld? She had only a small
capacity, but loved music for its own
sake. When, therefore, It was shown
to her that the simple waltzes, gavottes, minuets and marches with
which she struggled could be made
beautiful music just as the more
elaborate pieces she heard on the concert platform, she began to make progress, much to the delight of herself
anil her friends.

In the beginning of all things, so 'tis
said, tlie lirst woman led the first man
Into sin anil caused htm to yield to
temptation. But In the ages that have
elapsed since that time, there
have been countless eases where woman has been responsible for the upbuilding of man's character and moral
courage. This latter theme Is embodied
in "The Home Town Olrl," a new
paramount picture, starring Vivian
Martin, which will be presented at
the llo-Ilo Theatre next Monday. John
Stanley, a young clerk, who, Inspired
by love of a beautiful girl, has gono
to New York and obtained a good position, loses $300 In a poker game, which
sum he had collected for his employer.
Afraid to face his employer, John
writes him a note telling him his
pocket hud been picked and that he
won't come back until he has paid back
the three hundred. He then disappears.
Nell Fanshawe, played by Vivian
Martin, Is the girl. When she hears of
tbe boy's disappearance, she begins a
search, never tiring or stopping until
she finally flndB him. Although several
incidents happen which might have
shaken her faith In and loyalty to
John,  she  still  believes   In  him  and
when she finds him, persuades him
to go back to his employer and confess everything, after which he Is reemployed.

We recommend music as an investment of high order. It pays good
dividends. Very often our mind needs
rest when our body does not, and
music might be advanced as the best

of the Investment, and we trust goes
to show that what music can give,
money cannot buy.

■ team that played against Cumberland at South Wellington, and Cumberland will play the same team, on Nanaimo
grounds or any other neutral grounds, for medals of the value of
$25 each per man, the game haviing nothing to do with the championship."
This is the way Mr. A. H. Rowan, manager of the Cuumber-
land football team, answers the statements made in Nanaimo and
South Wellington with reference to the dispute over the playing
off of the tie between the leading teams in the Up-Island League.
It is now up to South Wellington to take up the challenge or refrain
from further claims that they are able to defeat the Cumberland
team.   Mr. Rowan's statement follows:
Under the heading "South Wellington-Cumberland Football
Dispute" the Nanaimo Herald of November 30 tries to explain that
there is some question in regard to Cumberland's right to hold the
championship of the Upper Island League. I would like to point
out to the editor of the Herald that although he pleads not guilty,
on the technical points involved, that the management of the Cumberland football team and their patrons are fully conversant with
those points.
After the game in which Cumberland tied the league at Ladysmith on November 22, a meeting of the league was called on the
field, there being present: President Orington, two delegates from
Nanaimo, four from Ladysmith, Mr. Jack McGregor, manager of
the South Wellington team, and another delegate, and two from
Cumberland. At that meeting Mr. McGregor agreed to play Cumberland the following Sunday on the Ladysmith grounds, the only
objection he raised being that he would rather see the game played
in Nanaimo.
Cumberland was anxious to have the game the following Sunday as the roads were in such bad shape, and if it were put off for
two or three weeks Cumberland team might not be able to travel
to Nanaimo to play. Cumberland made their appearance the following Sunday at Ladysmith, but in the meantime an Upper
Island League meeting had been called for the Saturday night.
Delegates from all the teams were present, and although Mr. Mc-
Grgor had changed his whole viewpoint in regard to playing the
following day, the league ordered the game played. South Wellington did not appear and Cumberland claimed the points after living
up to the rules and regulations by scoring a goal with the regularly
appointed officers of the game present. Ladysmith Athletics were
good enough sports to play the Cumberland boys a game, which
ended in a draw,
Cumberland was to get half of the gate receipts if South
Wellington played. Interest was running high; a record crowd
was expected and would certainly have appeared if South Wellington had lived up to their agreement and played the game when
ordered by the league. The Cumberland team lost money on the
trip, but they did not lose any of their prestige as good sports. The
pluck that the South Wellington team is supposed to possess must
have oozed away in the month's rest they had after Cumberland
beat them on their own ground. Being crippled after a month's
rest is no excuse, and Cumberland would have fielded a team of
boys rather than give the championship away.
Now as far as discussion is concerned, Cumberland has nothing to discuss. They are champions of the league and have not lost
a game this season. They will not play any more for a championship they have won.
But this they will do. They will play South Wellington football team, the same team that played against Cumberland at South
Wellington, and Cumberland will play the same team, on Nanaimo
grounds or any other neutral ground, for medals of the value of
$25 each per man, the game having nothing to do with the league.
This statement is made with the full consent of the management,
and if South Wellington want to regain their prestige as being full
of pluck and as good sports, now is their chance.
Hoping they accept this challenge, I remain, theirs in sport,
There were several surprises in British football games last Saturday.
Burnley, after having suffered a severe
drubbing at tlie hands of Bradford the
week previous, showed a complete
reversal of form and won a brilliant
victory, the win putting them In first
West Bromlch also sprung a surprise by defeating Sheffield Wednesday and taking second place In the

In the second division, Tottenham
Hotspur still maintains a comfortable

Benifit Smoker a Huge Success
THOSE who were responsible for the arrangements at the benefit
smoker at the Union Hall last Saturday night are to be congratulated upon the splendid success which attended their efforts. From
the commencement to the Mulsh the audience was supplied with a
goodly quantity of entertainment, both in the form of musical and
athletic numbers and well as refreshments. This was the first attempt of the kind for some time, and the success which attended the
inaugural smoker of the season speaks well for those which are announced to follow. Those gentlemen who took part In the programme
are also to be complimented upon their generosity ln rpelylng to
the repeated encores, and many who had never been heralded as entertainers proved their right to appear on a stage. As was to be expected the athletic events were the drawing cards and the several contestants received generous applause. Special mention should be made
to Messrs. Sine Swanson and Johnny Roberts, both ot whom assisted
materially ln providing the entertainment. Aa a result the beneficiary
received 7208, and his friends are delighted to know that they were
able to lend hi msuch aid. Those who were responsible for the entertainment were Messrs. Davis, Swanson and Horbury, and they wish
to especially thank Mr. Marshall, manager of the Oeorge A. Fletcher
Music Company, for his kindness in loaning the piano for the concert,
-Mr. O'Brien acted as chairman In a most acceptable manner, and
was happy in his Introduction of the following Items on the programme: Song, Mr, Sam Jones; song, Mr. W. Williams; song, Mr. It.

In the athletic events lots of old
faces were seen, and several new ones.

a wrestling newcomer, Benny Reese,
Sammy Walker and Alex. Rowan.
The first wrestling bout between
Bundwlth and Swanson was a good
one and although the newcomer had
lots of go he was outweighed several
pounds, and the old master got him.
Jackie Roberts put on two bouts,
que with Sammy Jones' boy, a lad of
about 14 years who has all the earmarks of a good boxer and with good
handling ls sure to be a good one.
Sine then tried out as a boxer. The old
warhorse was not satisfied with one
little wrestling bout, so he stood up
and let Roberts pop him for three or
four rounds. The crowd liked It.
Sammy Walker and Benny Reese
mixed another three rounds. Neither
of the men did much harm to the
other. Reese has a whole lot more than
he showed on Saturday night, and
Walker was a little on the fancy side
to make a good mixer.
George Ross was one of us and
refereed the bouts. George's hand
would not permit him to box, but he
enjoyed himself Immensely.

is plenty of talent in Cumberland, if
there was a suitable place and the

THE much talked-of boxing contest between George Ross and
Johnny Roberts is billed for December 20 at the llo-Ilo Theatre
in this city. Both men were in town this week and Ross
injured thumb is improving nicely; he looks in good shape and
reefreed some of the bouts at the benefit smoker last Saturday
night. Roberts, the soldier at present carving a farm and home
for himself out of the wilderness, looks as brown and fit as can be.
He boxed two exhibitions at the smoker on Saturday night with
Young Jones, who looks like a comer, and with Sine Swanson. Sine
still carries a nice lamp, so Jackie must have been popping him all
right. An endeavor will be made to match Tom Leigh of Nanaimo
and Pitcher Boyd for a preliminary. Boyd showed at the smoker
that he has the stuff. If the promoters land this go, tlie public is
assured of a grand night's entertainment. Joe Farrell, a speedy
120-pounder from Vancouver, is anxious to get a go with some of
the local boys. Ross says he can go some. Messrs. Brown and
Davis will try and accommodate him. Seats will be on sale early
next week.

"The quality of mercy is not strained;

 e course of justice none of us
I:aula j« salvation: we do pray for mercy;
Ana that same prayer doth teach us all to render
'i he deeds of mercy "
These words were put into the mouth of Portia
by Shakespeare many years ago, and though they
have become familiar the world over they still
retain the same force and potency as when
uttered. Familiarity and (he flight of time have
..o doubt had their influence upon the human
to the extent that its members do not regard this wonderful passage in its proper light
nor pay heed as they were wont to the admonitions of the fair advocate; yet the arguments
then advanced for the showing of mercy are today just as sound and forceful.
We have been taught anl it has become the
universal belief that man in his dealings with
man has, in these modern times, developed to a
greater extent than ever the saving grace of
charity and benevolence. Perhaps, in some respects, this is true, but in reality we believe the
very reverse is the case. To the world at large
the word "charity" does not bear its true meaning. It is the common belief that the giving of
i ion y or the bestowing of worldly goods upon
those who are in need is complying with the
precept of charity. True, giving fulfills the
divine command in a measure, but riot in its entirety, nor even in its greater proportion. True
charity goes far beyond the mere bestowing of
worldly goods. Its true mission is to lend a helping hand to the downcast; its bounty is sympathy
and brotherly love—"an ever present help in time
of trouble."
Charity also has another meaning, a much
deeper meaning than that commonly accorded
' means rnorcy in the truest sense of the
word, riad Shylock heeded the admonitions of
Portia he would have been acclaimed as a model
for thode who wished to practise charity instead
of having his character held up before the
world as an example of cruelty and selfishness,
He was wiling to forego the discharge of the
debt if he could but wreak his vengeance and
hatred upon his competitor .vhom he regarded
as his enemy, and in this respect he has many
followers today. They clamour loudly for justice,
yet throughout their dealings with their fellow
men they and mercy are strangers. Within the
pai^t five years there have been developed more
Shylocks ti.an the world had ever known from
the dawn of creation until the commencement
of the Great War, and a;> each day passes they
become more arrogant and grasping.
But the Shylocks are not confined to the
money-grabbers, nor are they the most despicable and persistent followers of the mythital
J*„'W. There is another and a much more pernicious brand—the man who persecutes his fellow
man who happens to be within his power. For
th*J former class there may be some excise, be-
cause his reward is personal gain, but for the
latter there is none, vindictiveness and hatred
being his sole impelling force. The former may
some day repent of his ways and make reparation for his wrong-doing, but the latter, no matter how great his repentence, can never make
amends for his misdeeds. His victims have suffered, and though he may turn the universe upside down hu can never obliterate the effects of
his cruelty or efface the opprobrium which
through his persecutions has been heaped upon
Ins hapless victim.
Now that we are approaching the season in
which we celebrate the coming to this earth of
the Great Dispenser of Charity and thc Advocate
of Mercy, is it not well that that we should stop
and consider as to what extent we are transgressing the precepts which He laid down for our
guidance? Might it not be well to ask ourselves
the question: Are we forgiving our trespassers
as we hope to have our trespasses forgiven ?
If the answer is in the negative, is it then not
time that we were turning about and following
the Golden Rule?
The blessings of mercy fall upon the giver as
well as the one who receives.
Why advise men to let their light shine and
then when they follow that advice not only punish but persecute them?
Thc suggestion made by Gen. Turner at Vancouver last week that the Canadian national flag
should be a Union Jack with a maple leaf is a
good one and well worthy of serious consideration. While Canada is a nation in itself and
should have some distinguishing mark on its
flag, it is also a member of the British Empire.
As such it is necessary that the Union Jack
should occupy the most prominent place on the
national emblem and that the distinctive Canadian mark should be secondary only to it.
According to the ropport to hand of Gen. Turner's remarks wc are not sure as to the shape
which he would have the national flag take. If
he meant that a maple leaf should be stuck in
the centre of the Union Jack we would not be
inclined to favor the idea; we believe the universally honored and respected emblem of the British Empire should not in any way be defaced.
If, however, thc gallant soldier had in mand a
flag somewhat similar to that now in use with
the Union Jack in the corner and a mapple leaf
in the field, then we believe the suggestion will
meet with almost universal approval.
At the present time the shild or coat of arms
on the field of the Canadian flag is, at the very
best, rather ambiguous. There are no doubt
iome, but not very many, Canadians who can tell
the real meaning of the shield. One sees a conglomeration of trees, fish, maple leaves, buffalo,
boats, sheaves of wheat, setting suns and various other animate and inanimate objects which
to the average person conveys very little meaning. To every Canadian, however, the maple leaf
means everything. It was the distinctive mark
by which the Canadian soldiers were known in
the Great War, and because of this the maple
leaf is known and respected throughout the civilized world. And among all the nations which
look part in the great struggle there are none
which hold the Canadian emblem in greater re-
pect than do those of the enemy against whom
ihe Canadians fought.
There may appear in some quarters objections to the displacing of the present shield by
the maple leaf, because some of the provinces
may not wish to see their particular emblem
dropped, but we do not believe this objection
would be at all general or even very considerable.
It is quite true that the maple leaf appears very
prominently upon one of the provincial shields,
and some may feel that tho suggested change
would be favoring that province too much. It
must not, however, be forgotten that the maple
leaf has come to be the emblem for the whole of
Canada, and the prairie provinces where the
maple tree does not exist look upon it with as
much veneration as do the people of Ontario,
where it flourishes in its natural state. Likewise
residents of the other provinces lay full claim to
it, so that there should be no real difficulty in the
way of having it placed on the field of the revised
Canadian flag.
There is certain to be some diversity of opinion
as to wat color should be selected for the field.
There are many who favor blue while an equal
if not greater number express a preference for
red. This, however, would be only a minor detail. The main thing is to get a flag whose design
will represent Canada as a whole and which can
oe understood at a glance.
No doubt there will be many who will wonder
why it is that The Islander is issuing invitations
for an entertainment to the children of this city,
and wc may be pardoned for explaining. The entertainment is given with the sole object of af-
'ording the children an opportunity of becoming
letter acquainted with the country and the
teople who suffered so severely and who did so
nuch for the cause of humanity in the Great
War. France was hard pressed to a much
greater degree than were any of the other great
Allies, and it was owing to the staunch manner
n which they withstood the onslaughts of their
greatest enemy that we are today enjoying a
comparatively peaceful respite. In years to come,
when the present rising generation has grown
to manhood and womanhood they may not be
afforded the opportunity of becoming intimately
acquainted with the wonderful work performed
by the brave women of France while the manhood of the nation was fighting in the trenches.
It has been universally conceded that it was
because of the work done by the French women
that France was enabled to remain in the
struggle, and the pictures exhibited next Thursday will show this as has been shown in no other
For a similar reason, and also with the idea of
raising funds for a deserving institution, probably the General Hospital, at a later date the entertainment will be repeated for the benefit of
adults. On this latter- Occasion a sum willbe
charged for admission, the gross proceeds going
to this worthy object. At their entertainment
the children will be the guests of The Islander.

The Islander wishes to take this opportunity of issuing an invitation to all the children of Cumberland and immediate district,
and more espepcially those who attend the Cumberland schools, to
be its guests at the llo-Ilo Theatre next Thursday afternoon, December 11, at 4 o'clock.
The pictures to be shown were made specially for exhibition
in Canada by the French Government and were presented to the
editor of The Islander while in Paris two years ago, who will inter
sperse the exhibition with brief talks and descriptions of the
various scenes.
It is the wish of The Islander that every child be given the
opportunity of enjoying the entertainment, and parents and guardians are requested to make it convenient for the children to attend.
As the theatre will not accommodate more than the number
of children in town, no adults will be admitted except those who
will assist in looking after the little ones during the performance.
Later on it is hopped that the entertainment will be repeated for
the benefit of adults, when some public institution, probably the
General Hospital, will reap the benefit.
Through the courtesy and kindness of Principal Richards and
his staff of teachers at the school, The Islander has been furnished
with a complete roll of the pupils in attendance at that institution,
which oppears below, and each child is asked to accept this as a
personal invitation to be present. The teaching staff of the schools
is also invited as well as all members of the School Board.
Any child whose name may not appear in the following list is
also invited to attend. It is the wish of The Islander that not one
child in town will be absent. Following is the complete roll of the
public schools:

Tlie river or dreams runs darkly down
Into the heart oi* a desolate land,
Willi ruined temples halt-buried in sand.
And riven hills, whose black brows frown
Over tlie shuddering, lonely wave.
The air grows tlliu with dust of the grave;
No sign of life on the dreary strand;
No ray of light on tlie mountain's crest;
And a weary wind that cannot rest
Conies down the valley creeping,
Lamenting, wailing, weeping -
I strive to cry out. Iml ray fluttering breath
Is choked with the clinging fog of death,
While the river of dreams runs down.
Tlie river of dreams ruuns trembling down,
Out of the valley of nameless fear,
Into a.country calm and clear,
Wilh it mystical name of high renown—
A name that I know, but may not tell—
And there the friends that I love so well,
Old companions forever dear,
Come beckoning down the river shore,
And hall my boat with tlie voice of yore.
Fair unci sweet are the places
Where see their unchanged faecal
And 1 feel in my heart with a secret thrill,
That the loved and lout are living still,
While the river of dreams runs down.
The river of dreams runs dimly down
By a secret way that no man knows;
Hut the soul lives on while the river flows
Through the gardens bright and forest brown;
And 1 often think that our whole life seems
To be more than half made up of dreams;
The changing sights and Ihe passing shows,
■-The morning hopoj a ul tho midnight fear:1,
Are left behiind with the vanished years;
Onward, with ceaseless motion,
The life stream flows to tho ocean,
While we follow tbe tide, awake or asleep,
Till we see the dawn on Love's great deep,
And the shadows melt, and the soul Is free—
The river river oi dreams has reached the sea.

THERE appears to have been a
universal Idea for many years that
the leaders In millinery and dressmaking fashions were located on the Rue
de la Paix in Paris, and that other
designers did not classify even as second-raters. This erroneous conception was completely exploded last
week at Union Bay at an evening given
at the home of Mr. and Mrs. Herbert
Glover in honor of Mr. aud Mrs.
George Booth, who are shortly leaving for Victoria to take up their residence, much lo the regret of the community in which they have many

One of Ihe Items on the programme
for Ihe evening's entertainment was a
hat-trimming contest ill which the
men alone were competitors, and It Is
freoly concede;! that MM. Worth and
Pi liquet were entirely eclipsed as designers of "fetching" styles in millln-
ei y. Each gentleman had lo make his
own selection of shape and trimming
and do tho arranging himself, the
trimming being attached by the use of
pins. In order to qualify as a prize
winner the successful competitor mUBt
build a hat that was "becoming" to
ills lady partner.
Many and vailed were the designs
produced and some of them were most
weird. After a spirited contest, three
separate lady judges awarded the prize
to Mr. Thomas Hudson of Union Bay,
his partner, Mrs. Booth, had never
worn a more becoming hat, Mrs.
Booth also received a prize as the recipient of the hat.
After his wonderful display of skill
In constructing feminine headgear, It
ls hinted that Mr. Hudson is seriously
considering retiring from tho autoimv
bile business and entering Into that of
women's haberdashery. At the conclusion of tlie hat-trimming contest

Members of Cumberland Branch Decide Time Has Arrived When
They Should Take Action—Will Nominate and Support Mr.
J. Brown for Seat at the City Council and Also Support the
Present Mayor—Women's Auxiliary Also in Line.
Veterans of the Great War Throughout Canada have decided that the
lime hns arrived when they should depart from their former policy of refrain
ing Irom taking part in politics and that they will enter the arena to prosecute tlie light for their rights as they sec them. There is universal dlssetls
faction iu tho ranks of the veterans witli the treatment accorded them by
various governments, Dominion and provincial, and from now on they Intend
doing their utmoi t to elect members of their own organizations to the different
public bodlea, believing these are the only ones they can trust to look after
their interests.
Definite action along lliis line was taken at the regular meeting of thc
Cumberland branch of the Great War Veterans' Association on Tuesday eve
ning lasi, when it was decided tliat they would nominate and support one of
their number, Mr. J. Brown, for a seat on the City Council at the coming civic
election, it was also decided that no better man could be found for the position of mayor than tlie present incumbent, and His Worship Mayor D. R.
McDonald will receive their hearty support. Support will also be given to
certain other candidates when it Is definitely known who are running for
olllce. The Women's Auxiliary of the G.W.V.A. have also decided to throw
in their lot with the men and will accord their support to thc same candidates.
Tins action on the part of the veterans Is not taken because of dlssatis-
faelon with any particular member ol tlie present council, but for the reason
that tho veterans have discovered that In order to protect their Interests at
all limes it is necessary to have men on the job when matters of Importance
come up. They have discovered that politicians frequently forget their
promises or to live up lo them in the manner that was expected of them, and
they are no longer inclined to rely upon such promises. They have also
learned to appprociate tlie old adage: "When you want a thing done, do It
yourself, and never depend on othert;," aud for the future they intend to
lollow this course.
It Is expected that the veterans will announce their full slate In a week or
two and from that time on they will prosecute an energetic campaign for the
purpose of having elected men of their choice.

i'The intimate article of dress
known as the corset which
the majority cf women wear
but know very little about"
IN this pertinent way the
well-known medical authority, Alice S. Cutler,
M. D., describes the most important garment in the wardrobe of women.
"Buy your corset carefully,"
warns Dr. Cutler. "No one
wants to be ill, and when
women realize that the constant wearing of an ill-fitting
corset helps to keep our hospitals open they will insist on
being properly fitted to corsets
instead of buying them hit or
We unreservedly recommend
Gossard Corsets, the original
front-lacing corsets, as the
complete expression of modern
corsetry. Every Gossard Corset is hygienically correct. If
properly fitted to the figure
for which it was designed, and
carefully adjusted each time it
is worn, it will mould that

figure to the ideal proportions
of its type. It will give a
priceless all-day comfort. It
will safeguard the wearer
against those bodily ailments
'that are often the result of
improper corsetry. It will
render a wearing service that''
alone is worth the price paid
for tlie garment.
If possible, the new Spring and
Sti miner Gossards are superior
to those of the past season,
which were general!)' acknowledged to be without equal in
meeting the needs of active
womanhood from the standpoint of comfort, hygiene,
wear and figure improvement.
Our highly specialized fitted
service reflects our sincere appreciation of the important
relation a correctly fitted corset bears to your health, and
to that perfect figure poise
that gives the elusive charm
of style.
