New Trial For
Wang 0. Sang
The jury disagreed in the trial of
Wong 0. Sang, charged with the murder of Wing Chung at Cumberland in
November Inst. The trial lasted for
two days und after three hours' deliberation, the jury could not agree
Whether or not Wong O. Sang killed
Wing Chung In self-defence, It was
reported In ihe corridors at the courl
house, that ihe count stood ten to two
for acquittal. Wing Cluing was killed
by a bullet discharged from a revol
vcr whicli Wong O. Snug Is said to
have carried.
Two Chinamen quarrelled. Mr. Juu-
llco Muiphy pointed out In his charge
to tho Jury that it was common
ground Hint Wing Chung met his
death as tbe result of a bullet wound
Inflicted by Wong O. Sang's pistol,
while that pistol was in the bauds of
Die accused. He commented that the
evidence for Hie prosecution did not
reveal a motive, but that it was not
incumbent upon the Crown to go this
far to prove its case.
J. A. Itussel, counsel for the defense,
addressed the jury for an hour and
thirty minutes, dwelling on the fact
ihat witnesses for the prosecution were
all of one Tong, the Jung family, and
that the Jungs hud spent large sums of
money and employed two clevor law
yers to prosecute tho caso agaiust
Wong O. Sang. He dwelt upon the lm
probabilities of tiie Crown evidence
that Wong 0. Sang, a total stranger to
the deceased, had entered his shop al
high noon Willi a huge weapon, and
without any indication of a quarrel,
had drawn the pistol, and shot Wing
Chung.
A. B. MacDonald, Crown attorney,
made a similar criticism ot the story
told by Wong 0. Sang, who had claimed that there were three or four more
men iu Hie shop at the time of the
shooting, that the Crown witnesses
men Honed. He asked what had become of these men, and whether the
jury could believe that on old ond
trusted employee of tho O.P.R. would
deliberately commit robbery ln the
presence of witnesses as described by
the accused.
J. A. Russel, counsel for the defense,
in the course of his address to the
jury, pnld a great compliment to Provincial Constable Dunbar, saying he
was ono of the most efficient officers
In the Provincial Police B^orce.
Tho new trial lias been set for Wednesday, May 10th.

Gentlemen :-
1 beg to submit the-annual report of
the Cumberland General Hospital for
the year ending March 31st, 1922.
Work of The Hospital
During the year the following num
uer of patients were treated:
In the'Hospital, April 1st, 1921 ....     20
Admitted during the year  :....   390
Discharged during the year    360
Died during the year     Hi
III the Hospital, April 1st, 1922 .... 27
No. of Hospital days treatment 955 i
Average number patients per day     20
Major Operations       39
Minor Operations     101
Obstetrical Cases      aS
There has been a further Increase
in the work of the Hospital during the
past year, there being SS3 more days
treatment than during the previous
year. It is evident that the residents
of Cumberland are taking full advantage of the Hospital facilities.
Financial Condition
During the year, us It will be noted
from the financial statement, the receipts from all sources were $22,911.18,
and the total expenditures were $22,-
956.12, leaving a loss on the year's operations of $45.24. The Hospital had
a balance in the bank to Its credit at
the beginning of the fiscal year of
$1,953.22, and at the close of the year
$1,907.96.
The Hospital has been able to meet
all Its financial obligations when
due, without recourse to any overdraft at the bank.
Repairs To Buildings
Some very extensive repairs wero
carried out during the year. The entire building was repainted outside nnd
considerable calsomiuing was done on
tho Inside. The hot water beating
was extended to the Chinese ward. A
new cooking range had to be purchased as the old range was completely
worn out. The roof of the Chinese
ward was reshingled. The total
amount of money spent on repairs was
$2,097.90.
Additions To Equipment
A 16 Inch pressure sterilizer lias
been installed at a cost of nearly
$900.00. The addition of this machine
has brought our sterilizer equipment
up to dale. New furniture for various
rooms and wards to the value of $1,-
218.20 was purchased during the year.
Cost of Opcriiliuii
I am very pleased to be utile to report a very low cost of operutiou. The
cost per patient per day for tho year
just closed is $2.42 per day. This Is
a splendid showing, especially iu view
ot the very decided increase In the
number of patient days during Hie past
two years. 1 believe tills cost is about
Ihe lowest cost per patient per day of
any public hospital ln the province.
Medical Fund Agreement
The agreement entered into, with
the Medical fund for treatment ol
their members for $1,000.00 per mouth
has been very satisfactory and the
Hospital lias been able to render the
Medical Fund treatment at a very low
rate. The Hospital Board felt in view
of their financial condition that they
could afford to remit one month's subscription ($1,000.00) to the Medical
Fund.
The amount paid by the Medical Fund
under this agreement was therefore
$11,000.00.
During the year the number of patient days treatment under this agroo-
nieut were as follows:
Male    Female    Total
Sickness    2140       138S      3526
Accident    2283 2283
Total   5811
The cost per patient per day to the
Medical h'und was only $1.89, which
is 53 cents per patient per day less
than the average cost at the Hospital.
This is a very low cost for hospital
treatment.
The Hospital Board was also able lo
relieve the Medical Fund of the payment uf 50 per cent of the dressings
which would amount to approximately
$200.00. ln addition tbe members of
the fund benefitted by a reduction of
75 cents per day on Obstetrical Cases,
which amounted to nearly $700.00.
ln view of Hie above, It would appear-
that this agreement has been of considerable benefit to the members of
Hie Medical Fund, aud as the Hospital
is able to carry on under this agreement 1 would recommend that it bo
continued,
Collections from private patients
have been good. Unpaid accounts
niuoant to $972.50. Most of this
amount we consider collectible. This
is only 4 per cent of the total receipts.
The Ladies Auxiliary has done excellent work during the year In furnishing linen and other supplies, and 1
wish to express the appreciation of the
Board for their valuable asslstauce.
1 also wish to express my appreciation of the good work done by the
Matron and her staff during the year.
'L'he operating costs show that every
economy Is being exercised' by her
In the operation of the Hospital.
1 also wish lo express the thanks of
the Board to all those who made donations or assisted Hie Hospital in
any way.
Electing officers for the ensuing
year resulted as follows:
Charles Graham. President; It. H.
Robertson, Vice President; Thomas
Mordy, Secretary; C. J. Parnham.
Treasurer,
Directors: Thomas Bennett, Dr.
Geo. K. McNaiigliton, A. .1. Taylor, E,
D. Pickard and Edward Hughes.
City Team Win
By TheOdd Goal
The Cumberland Hulled ami Cumberland City met In the first game of n
four game series for the McLean Cup.
and championship of the Cumberland
district. The game was well contested throughout, some good combination being shown at times by tho forwards of the United team, but tlle
breaking up tactics of Hie City's defence spoiled tholr chances. The Cum
bcrlnnd United scored the Ilrst and
only goul of the gnmo through Appleby ufter 25 minutes of Hie second half
hnd been played. This game was
very Interesting from Hie side lines
and was oijiinl lo most other games
that have been played here this season. The Cumberland city Executive
intend to strengthen their forward
rank for Ihe next game in tills series
as they discovered Ihey were weak in
ibis part of the team; also it is understood that Kenny will he bark In the
Centre Half position of Hie Cumberland United, Owing to small margin
between these two tennis great interest Is being token In their next game
which will lie announced luter.

1NTERMEMATE BALL TOSSERS
TRIM FAST TRAVELLING JAPS
The local Intermediate Baseball Club
trimmed the Japanese team on Sunday last previous to the Cumberland
County game. The Intermediates dished up as snappy a brand of ball as
has been seen on the local grounds for
some time romping home with a 4 to 3
victory. John Blnny pitched a good
game for the Intermediates, having
good contral and scattering his hits
well.
The game elided with an exiting climax. The Japanese with a man on
third base and two down drove a ball
down the foul line Iu the direction of
third base, passing into the foul area
before reaching third base. Umpire
Horton declared It a foul ball but after consultation with spectators be
hind the home plate reverted his decision and called it a fair ball. This drove
in a tleltig run. However the Inter
mediate came back in the last half of
the Inning with the "never say die'
spirit and drove In the winning run.

"Reputation," the newest Universal
Jewel super-feature, starring PrlsclUa

on Friday and Saturday [s heralded a.i
a dramatic thunderbolt of tremendous
power, After her two recent successes, "The Virgin of Stamboul" and "Out-

would require a photoplay of extra-'

untie trinity, From all accounts, "Reputation" not only proven its right to

nost powerful drama projected on the

The most interesting feature of "ttc-
putatlon" is tiie fact thai it permits
Prtscilla Dean to piny a dual role—o
cnothef aud daughter—both possessing
.narked histrionic genius, but differing
til every other eharacterislic. The mo*
her is a woman who has violated so-
. iul code and sunk to moral depth:;
in inverse ratio to her ri.^e in fame nnd
popularity. The daughter, on the
other hand, raised in a county asylum,
blooms like a violet in a swamp, and
grows up to pure and charming young
womanhood. Tho mother has forgotten the daughter's existence, while the
child has never known her mother's

Final Won By

(Contributed)
Played at Ladysmith last Sunday resulting in a win for South Wellington
by 1 goal to nil over the Ladysmlth
2nd Division team. The weather was
ideal but a wind was blowing from
end to end and somewhat spoiled the
play at times, about 2500 spectators
lined the ropes, automobiles, etc.
bringing football enthusiasts from every direction leading to Ladysmith.
Mr. A. S. Jones of Cumberland had tlle
honor of refereeing this cup final with
J. Rogerj and J. Galloway of Ladysmlth as linesmen.
Prompt at 3 p.m. Referee Jones set
Ihe. tennis a-going, South Wellington
won the toss and decided to play with
Ihe wind ill their favor. After the
kick-oft Hie Ladysmith boys pressed
for the Ilrst lew minutes and the South
Wellington team then forced mailers
on their right wing, Smith sending 111
a nice shot which was cleared by
llotutie. Play was of a give and take
nature for sumo time, each goal being
visited iu turns with neither playing
classic football, At Ibis period Bed-
dingtnn received a cross from Smith
and sent In ii high shot ut the corner
of the goal, Seattle had his hands on
the hull but It rolled over his head
and dropped n loot over the goal line.
Referee Jones was right on the job
and gave u goal to South Wellington.
Half time was called with no further
scoring.
In the second half the Ladysmlth
took the game In hand and pressed
nearly the whole of the 45 minutes,
just on occasional intervals did the
South Wellington forwards get over
the half way line and for very short
periods at that. Twenty minutes from
time. Ladysmlth were granted a penalty kick for Green handling within
the penalty area, Polllck took the kick
shooting the ball right into MoPhlllps
hands which he cleared at the expense
of a comer but nothing resulted and a
poor game for a cup Html ended, South
Wellington 1 goal, Ladysmith 0.
South Wellington are now in possession of Hie Brackman-Ker Cup ami

team puts up a very poor display and
they have been very fortunate to bo
in the.position they are this year, although great credit is due the South

right with it,, and now they have accomplished their goal.

Ten Minutes' Interval
Tom Harcoui't was huddled in the
huge and shabby chair with whicli
be insisted upon desecrated Fenella's
black and orange drawing-room,
The chair was covered—in parts—
with shabby green leather. In other
parts, the stuffing protruded, and he
would neither allow it to ho re-upholstered—because, he said, upholsters
always monkeyed with the springs, and
us they were, they were just right—not
would ho left Fenella put un it the
black satin loose cover she had had
specially made—because he said, they
always crumpled or tore, or pulled out,
or something, when he'd got comfortable, So the chair, to an artistic eye
- like Fonella's— spoilt the room. So
did Tom, who refused lo dress for
dinner more thuu once a week, and
was therefore clad in his pet suit
of a shouting red-brown Harris tweed.
\ Fenella could see more than enough of
it round the corners of the Times ho
Vvns reading.
Sho was looking at him and few men
realize how ominous u danger-signal
is there when u silent wife drops her
knitting or lior book Into her lap, and
just sits looking nt him - taking stock.
At last she spoke, abruptly, and
with more than u hint al. desperation.
"Tom! 1 want to get into glad rags
ana go somewhere where wo can
dance."
"What?" The paper was lowered
just enough to show her his unsmiling
countenance, and his eyes that were
like grey agates.
She repeated her announofment,
though she knew he had heard perfectly. Ills trick of saying "What."' unnecessarily was one of Fenella's miner
crosses.
"No darned fear!" He put the
paper up again. I'm not going to
start changing at this hour, and anyhow, I'm too tired to dance."
"Bosh! said Fenella, rudely. Then
she got up.
"Look here, Tom, if I don't go out
and do something, I'll go mad. Plum-
crazy, d'you understand? I'm fed up.
I'm ill Willi boredom, it's donkey's
years since wc went anywhere."
"We dined Willi the lirntchclt's on
Monday," ho expostulated from behind the paper.
"Yes, and talked Lloyd George from
tho soup to the savory, with a mildewed old maid and an Anglo-Indian
relic of the past, and then sat in the
drawing-room, shivering and yawning till it was mercifully time to come
home,    Li'iTh!" ^
She seined the paper suddenly,
flung it down and stamped on It.
"\ mi'vo gut to do something! 1 want
to laugh, to ieei alive for ten minutes."
They wrangled lor half-an-liour, and
ut lust, grudgingly, lie consented io
ilng up for u couplu of stalls ill the
Victoria Palaco.
"It's nice and handy, und I can go us
I am," lie pointed out.
Fenella gave a delicate feminine Imitation of a suorl, atnl went to get her
flit- coat,
li was a good show. Fenella began
her laughing tunic In the lirst live
minutes. There was a hoy at the piano
who sang sentimental little songs with
a wicked "zip" at tho end, Interspersing them with a quick fussillade of
peppery stories.
Fenella, between her swirls of laughter Hint she tried, to suppress nnd
couldn't; glanced once or twice at Tom.
lie was laughing, too, but when he
caught her eye, ho tried to frown, because lie was of that order which prefers its women without humor.
After a try or two to share her enjoyment, Fenella gave it up, and devoted her attention entirely to the
stage.
II was some time before the boy who
sat next her dawned upon her cou-
sclousnoss.
ile wus more than an incarnate
laugh at first. Then, his laugh was so
whole-hearted and infectious, Fenella
'caught herselt stealing a glance at
him to seo if he were as nice as lie
sounded,
lie was.
A little older then his laugh, clean-
cut, well-tailored, alert and" alive, he
gave Fenella a most refreshing thrill
of pleasure. From then onwards, she
gave the stage no more than a divid-
ed attention, und, If one of the turns
bored her, she spent her menial leisure wondering what sort of a husband
ho'd make—If he'd slack about In
shabby tweeds and insist on spoiling
her drawing-room. And always, her
heart answered in the negative. One's
heart always does do these things, till
bitter experience forces it to confess
the truth.)
•Then the boy—who wasn't quite a
uoy—looked Fenella's way, and saw
her short little nose crinkle as she
laughed, aud caught the fugitive
gleam of light on the red-gold hair
that shone like a nimbus round the
edges of her small, dark fur cap. And
thereafter his attention also was divided, und Fenella had the-fuu of sharing her laughter after all.
Tom saw nothing of this by-play.
I'hough ho guffawed at Intervals, he
was faintly bored with tho show, and
conscious thut he would rather be at
linnie, In his shabby, comfortable
Chair, with his paper. Besides, the
woman behind him was kicking the
hack uf his seat, which irritated him.
"I'm going out for a breath of fresh
air," lie announced, abruptly, when
Hie lights flashed up for the Interval.
Ills coat brushed the programme oft
the top of Fenella's muff, as he went,
and the boy beside her retrieved It.
"Thank you," sold Fenella, smiling.
"Not't'ull," said he, hastily. "Er—
topping show, isn't It?"
"Awf'ly," she agreed, and he noticed
that she had one dimple, which Is
always more fascinating than two.
They didn't stop there, of course.
Wasn't the interval ten minutes long,
and Tom the kind of person who
never came back till the bell rang?
The boy was just going to ask Fenella's name, when the faint tinkle
brought Tom in. Fenella, perfectly
aware of tiie boy's thwarted Intention, cursed Hie bell, and settled down
lo watch the next turn.
Halfway through it, Inspiration
touched her. There was an opened
letter In her muff—from her dressmaker, enclosing a pattern or two.
She had taken it from the postman as
(hey came out. Gently, she worked It
to the edge of her muff. Between two
turns, the tiniest movement flicked
It to the floor. Tom, on her right, was
busy watching a pretty programme
girl and trying to catch her eye, but
Fenella saw the boy's foot slide over
the letter, and smiled.
He returned it next day, with a
I charming note, and Fenella, naturally,
wrote to thank blm.   She explained
how glad she was to have it, as she
was going to her dressmaker's tbat
very afternoon at three, and would
of course want the patterns.
Surprising, wasn't It, that they
should meet? They both said so. . . .
They also said that "it seemed like
Fate."
They are married now. These things
of course can be wangled, and Tom
made disappointingly little fuss. He
only wanted peace and quiet, and
somehow neither had come his way
while he'd been married lo Fenella.
Fenella's drawing-room Is now grey
and gold, and her husband's chair
combines comfort and elegance, as
the advertisements say.
She has lilm well-trained, He drcss-
;s for dinner with the utmost docility,
ind they dance Into tho wco ama'
hours two or three times a week.
But It Is noticeable that, when Fonella's new husband takes her to the
theatre, lie doesn't leave her In the
Interval, either for a breath of fresh
sir or anything else unless she has a
woman on Hie other side of her.
He knows a trick worth two of that.

Forest Fires
There are usually two periods ot lire-
hazards in the Canadian forests, In
early spring just alter tho snow disappears, and in late summer, when the
vegetation has begun to got dry. Exceptional seasons vary these period
but tho two classes o[ "spring fires-'
and "summer fires" remain. Man;
people understand way tho dry, ho;
period of late summer is likely to b
favorable to the starting ot fores:
tires but they think that, after th
heavy snowfall of winter, the wood
ought to be safe till early summer a'
least. A little reflection, however, will
show why the early spring period 1
particularly dangerous, lu early spring
there Is often a short period of hoi
bright days. The leaves have not yel
come out nnd the sun shines dowi
through the leafless branches directly
on the forest floor. The snow disap
pears as if hy magic und the dead
twigs and last year's leaves becomes
dry as timber. If a glowing mntch ot
cigarette stub Is dropped among thi,
material the forest lloor is ablaze over
a space of many yards in a moment.
A few days at this period are always
most critical. Alter the first spring
rain the ground vegetation becomes
green and damp, and the leaves conn
out and shade the forest floor. Thi
worst danger ts then over, until the
hot days of the late summer cause the
vegetation to dry out, when a danger
period ensues which lasts till tho first
autumn rains. The moral of it all i.
that Canadians ought always to be
careful with fire in the forest anil
doubly careful during these danger
periods.

All Canadians have heard ot the
medicine, cascara, but all do not know
that this is obtained from the bark of
the cascara tree which is found growing on the Pacific Coast of this continent. Owing to the heavy drain on tho
stands of this tree In tbe Pacific States,
Uiitish Columbia is now one of the
sources of supply, and carloads of the
bark are shipped out every season. In
order that all citizens of the province
who have to do with work in the
woods may recognize this tree and
knew how best to conserve It, an illustrated pamphlet, written hy Professor
John Davidson of the University oi
British Columbia, lias been issued by
the Forestry Branch of the Department of the Interior. It is known as
Circular No. II), The Cascara Tree in
: British Columbia. It has been widely
circulated in British Columbia, but any

New Silver Strike
At Keno Hill
Juvenile Crime
Of the Influence of pernicious literature in making criminals, .Mr. Davitt
says, in his "Leaves from a Prison
Diary": "Among young thieves are
often found youths who have had honest parents and a proper bringing up.
These are the victims of such works
as 'Blueshin, 'Three-linger Jack,' 'Jack
Sheppard,' 'Claude Duval,' 'Dick Tur-
pln,' and the various other pestiferous
criminel novelettes which bave obtained such an immense circulation
among boys of tho Industrial classes
of these countries during the past
twenty years. The writers ot these
thief making sheets represent theli
pickpocket, burglar, or highwayman
hero in picturesque colors, and bun
dreds of bright, Intelligent hoys have
been torn from the homes of respectable parents through the instrumentality ot this literature of rascaldom, and
have become cast, In most cases for
their wholo future, among the telon
ranks of habitual criminal life"
A Dawson City, Yukon, press de-
ipatch states that rich new silver
strikes have been made in Keno 111)1,
Recent arrivals from that district report that high grade veins have been
vpencd on Croesus, Crystal Gulch,
3ambler Gulch, Slate Creek and Stone
claims. The Slate Creek company is
'pening up a vein of five feet of steel
galena ore at a depth of 65 feet. The
I'ukon Gold company is shipping 3,000
.oils of ore from the Rico claim. At a
lepth of 300 feet the ore proves richer
ban ever. Another vein has been opened up a mile away on the same
lalm facing Faro Gulch. 11 has high
;rade ore at a depth of 70 feet. It i;
ixpected thnl the population of .Mayo
amp, whicli has already nearly halt
he population of the Yukon Territory,
.ill be more than doubled this suni-
ici'. The While Puss company Is

r at .Mayo to help handle ore and
iilier business for the camp, tho de-

One ball' of tho worry and confusion
i life arises from doing things at the
.rung lime, the mind being either
Ci.kein.il by borrowing today ihe tron
lie of tomorrow, or exhausted by hnv-
ng on hand not only today's work, but
hat which ought to have been done
.eslerday. God never wants us to do
nore in a day that we have time tor;
oul Ihe day will he found to have room
iiougli for Its own work, if it is not
incumbered with the work ot the day

Tho High School basketball quintette
capped the Intermediate Championship last Saturday evening when they
took the Owls Into camp la-7. Little
interest was displayed in the long delayed game, the gatekeeper drawing
the tremendous sum of 2« cents. The
game was anything but n sample of
ihe brand of basketball they usually
play as can be seen from the score. On
the evening's play the Owls should
have won but could not find a clothes
uaaket far less a basketball hoop. Now
the champions justly so would like the
