Essay On
Scotland
A correspondent sends us the
following skit on Scotland: -
Scotland is a bl'aw wee land in
r.orth of England. There is water nearly all around it, aud whiskj
over a large portion of it. There
is great mining wealth in the
country. Gold has been found
in certain localities as well as in
the pockets of the natives, hut in
both cases difficult to work. The
population is about half a million
including Andrew Carnegie. Its
chief exports is Harry Lander
and whisky, but enough of the
latter is kept to satisfy the home
consumption. Its chief import
of recent years has been Winston
Churchill. A part of the native
costume is called a kilt. It resembles a small petticoat -in pattern like a chess-board, but. in
cold weather considered a draught
board. It was invented because
the natives could not get trousers
big enough to get their feet
through, their national instrument is the bagpipes, which it is
said, on being blown produce a
tune. Scotch regiments have
been known to inarch to death to
the music of these pipes but their
willingness to face the former
was their desire to escape the
latter.
JUNIOR CLUB CONCERT
WAS GREAT bUCCESS
'ine concert given Thursday
night by tne Ansen Junior Musical Club in the Anglican church
hall was a pronounced success.
'the hall was filled to capacity
and those who took this opportunity of hearing the club in
their lirst concert were well repaid.
All the children, who had been
specially trained by Mrs. R. E.
Frost, were in excellent form,
and went through their various
songs and choruses in a most
captivating manner.
Mr. Colin Campbell assisted
in making the concert such a
success, manipulating his talking dolls like a true professional,
and great credit is due to Mrs.
Frost for the very able manner
in which the concert was conducted. A great deal of hard
and earnest training, covering a
great part of the winter, had
been put in by the children, and
their tutor, Mrs. Frost, is to be
congratulated on tho excellent
results.
LOCAL SOCCER TEAMS

last, the McLean Cup Association was formed for the purpose
of arranging a series of football

Successful Dance
The whist drive and dance
held by the members of the
G.W.V.A. on Friday last was a
great success, about Hi tables
being occupied for the whist
drive. Mrs. H. Parkinson was
the lucky winner of the ladies'
first prize, whilst the consolation ' went to Mrs. Cordon.
Amongst the gentlemen, Mr.
Donald Watson was successful
in obtaining the first prize and
Mr. Tom Rickson the consolation. After refreshments were

commissioner lor B.C., will ad-
dress lite meeting. Mr. Sutherland is visiting, and giving
addresses on this phase of boy's
work, in many of the towns on
die island. Mayor D. R. MacDonald has kindly consented to
act as chairman. A cordial invitation is extended to all interested in boy's work to attend
this meeting.
Business Changes Hands
Mr. Lui Erancescini has taken
uver the business carried on for
so many years by Mr. Paolo
Monte. The new owner is a
brother of the late Alderman
Louis Francescini, and has had
considerable experience as a
shoe maker and boot repairer.
Mr. Francescini has adopted for
his slogan, 'service and satisfaction,' and hopes by strict attention to business to merit a
share of the public patronage.
GETS ORDER FOR
ONE THOUSAND MEN
An order for 1000 men for
farm work in Saskatchewan was
received this morning by the
Employment Service of Canada.
About 800 men have already
been sent from Vancouver, Victoria and New Westminster for
this work and the additional
iUUO are required immediately.
Air. J. H. McVey, the superintendent of the B.C. offices, is
applying for an extension of the
period lor cheap rates for farm
laborers, which expires soon,
until the end of the month.
Men wishing to take advantage
of the cheap rates8 now existing
are advised to apply to the employment at once.
The wages average from $35
to $40 a month with board and
lodging and the opportunity of
making the regular harvesters'
wages when cutting starts.
Home Cooking
Stall Big Surprise
ihe bazaar hold under the
auspices ol the Ladies Auxiliary
oi Holy 'trinity church on Wednesday last was a pronounced
success. The ladies in charge of
ihe fancy stall reporting a brisk
demand lor their wares, as some
exceptionally good bargains
were on sale.
The ladies in charge of the
fruit salad and afternoon teas
were also kept very busy, every-
thing being sold right out. The
home-cooking stall, about which
so many of tho ladies had their
doubts, was an eye-opener.
Some ladies evidently thought
ihat because a man, who goes
fishing quite often, was not
capable of doing any baking or
cooking. Everyone was very
much surprised at the excellent
ihowing made in this stall, and
Ihe gentleman in charge was
soon sold out. As soon as he
counted the money out and had
turned it over to the ladies, he
made tracks for the river again,
—-and caught a beaut.
During the afternoon musical
selections were rendered b y
Mrs. R. Fyvie, Mrs. J. Pinfold
and Miss Cockrell, with Mrs. R.
E. Frost as accompanist.
We understand that a sum of
about $150 will be realized from
Ihe sale.
Dance in the Evening
The dance in the evening was
also-well attended the hall being
nicely filled. Dancing was kept
up until 12 to music supplied by
Messrs. Robertson, Owen and
Plump.
Comox District School
Fair, Wednesday, May 10
Final plans for the fair are now well under way. It will be held
in the new school on May 10th from 3 to 6 p.m. The children are
hard at work preparing exhibits, and we hope the affair will be
well patronized by parents and all others interested in the young
people of our city.
There will be no admittance charge, but to help defray expenses
a booth where home cooking, candy, ice cream and flowers will
be sold, is to be installed. The Parent-Teachers* Association are
kindly taking charge of this, and anyone wishing to make donations for the stall is asked to communicate with Mrs. G. K.
McNaughton, chairman of the committe.
Please remember, May 10th, 3 to 6 p.m. Comox District School
Fair.   Everybody welcome,
A beautiful framed picture
has been purchased as a prize
for the school obtaining the
highest percentage in the division of school work. A silver
medal is the award to the boy
or girl making the highest score
in all exhibits; these are the
highest  awards  the Teacher's
Association can give, and to be
the winner of one of them will
be a proud distinction. Banners
are also to be awarded to the
most proficient classes,
An elocution contest and exhibition of cooking will also be
held on Wednesday, May 10th.
CLUB NOTES
Mr. Wm. M. Brewer concluded
his series of "Talks to Prospectors" last Saturday evening to a
very appreciative audience.
His explanation of why so
many people loose in mining investments was very interesting,
showing that if people would
cater more to the prospector
direct than with the promoters
of "wild cat" promotions, mining in general would be far
ahead of where it is today.
The association has taken
over the responsibility of the
May Day sports to be held on
the recreation grounds.
An illustrated lecture on gen i
eral astronomy will be given in
the lecture hall of the club next
Saturday at 8 p.m. by Dr. Reynold K. Young, of the Dominion
Astrophysical Observatory at
Victoria.
This lecture should prove in-
eresting due to the fact that Dr.
Young is associated with the
vast research work that is being
carried out at the observatory.
The equipment at the Victoria
observatory is.one of the finest
in the world and some of the
clearest and best photographs
that have ever been taken have
been taken there. Some of
these photographsic plates will
be shown at the lecture.
A meeting of the public library board of the Cumberland
Public Library was held last
Monday evening and found that
all the books are being well used
by those who have taken out
membership cards.
To date there has 7,873 books
circulated from the library,
which shows that those who
have taken advantage of the,
library are making good use of
it.
The membership consists of
370 club members and 22 public
members.
Some time in the near future
a canvass will be made to try
and induce more of the public to
Enroll.
INTERMEDIATE BASEBALL
CLUB MEETS SUNDAY
A meeting of the Cumberland
intermediate baseball club will
be held in the Athletic Club on
Sunday evening at 7.30 p.m. for
the purpose of electing officers
and organizing for the year. A
cordial invitation is extended to
all interested in the intermediate club.
Mr. James F. Hough, who for
the past two years has been on
the staff of the Islander, severed
his connection last week-end.
Mr. Hough intends going to
Indianapolis to take up a course
in typography.
TWO BASEBALL GAMES
aiLiLici) nun aunyAl
a big baseball game Will be
neiu on tne recreation grounds,
Cumberland, on Sunday, commencing at 3 p.m., wnen tne
Cumberland senior baseballers
and Courtenay meet for the first
game of the season.
This game should be a battle
royal as great rivalry exists between the two teams. Shakespeare, a new pitcher, is expected to hold down the mound job
for the locals, whilst "Lefty"
Larson and some of his team
mates from Bellingham will be
seen in the colors of the Cour1»
nay team.
intermediate Team Will

On Sunday at the Recreation
Grounds the first intermediate
baseball game of the season will
be played, when the Jap team
locks homs with the Cumberland intermediates. The game
is due to start at 12.30 p.m. in
order to give the local senior ball
tossers a chance to mix matters
with the Courtenay contingent.
The local squad of intermed
iates is building a strong team
although the permanent team
has not been selected. On Sunday John Bennie will start in
the box for the locals and Dave
Richards will be trusted with
the receiving end. Bobby Rob'
ertson will be tried out in the
premier sack and Farmer on
second base.
Dave Hunden will hold down
the short-stop position and is
also reliable in the pitcher's box
should Bennie weaken. Micky
Mitchell will hold down the hot
corner—third base. The outer
garden will consist of Matt
Stewart at left field, "Tab" Win-
ningham centre field and Alex
Somerville will take care of the
flies in right field.

Observations Of A
Federal Member
April 19th. There being no
debates a few words re the
buildings may be in order.
On the site of the main building burned a few years ago has
been erected a large rectangular
block, almost entirely of stone.
All floors, stairways, etc. are of
stone. It is almost entirely devoted to caring for the meeting
of Parliament and Senate and
must be practically empty when
house is not sitting. Contains
chamber where the Commons
meet and where the accoustics
are so bad that members at
lower end of chamber do not
hear more than ten per cent of
what goes on; similar chamber
for Senate, large halls for meetings of railway, agriculture ana
other committees and caucus
rooms; fine restaurant on sixth
floor with a magnificent vlev
and with an enormous annua
deficit altho charging ample
rates. Library badly arranged
and managed, and ollice roomi;
for all members of Senate and
Commons. It is said there are
three miles of corridors, which
are wide enough for two flivver.;
to pass. Was to have cost between five and seven millions,
actually cost between twelve
and fifteen millions.
There are two blocks of Government offices not far off and
all the rest of the large staff.
some 7,000, are scattered all
over the town, mostly in rented
offices. It is the exception,
rather than the rule, that all the
officers of one department are
under the same roof. So great
is the confusion that the Government have opened a bureau
in the post office, you have to go
upstairs to get a money order.
The system invites waste an inefficiency.
Barthelmess
In Great Play
How love and adoration on
the part of a carefree mountain
youth for his big brother lifts
him from boyhood to manhood
in a single day and causes him
to scale insurmountable heights
in behalf of his brother is the
story which Richard Barthelmess portrays to the public in
"ToPable David," the star's first
picture for Associated First National Pictures, Inc., which is to
he shown at the Ilo-llo theatre
Friday and Saturday.
The play, replete with thrilling adventures staged in the
mountains of Virginia, is full
also of heart thrills wound
around simple family life. Mr.
Barthelmess, as David, reaches
the hearts of his audience thro'
his appeal for sympathy for the
ideals of the romantic country
boy, and he thrills them with
his revelation of indomitable
courage and tenacity of purpose
at the risk of his own life in defending these ideals.
A new-born babe who pulls at
the very heart strings with the
message his entrance into the
world carries, is among the
characters. David's dog, his
courageous father, tender mother, pitiful sister-in-law whose
life is blighted by the tragedy
which befalls his hero-brther,
all carry the same message.
The touching love theme
which runs through tne story,
being the basis for many a delightful romantic scene, not untouched by comedy at times,
furnishes a beautiful background.
Mr. Barthelmess, who lira I
appears before the public as a
star in this play gives a sympathetic and understanding portrayal of the youth "jjavid,'
which will bring an answering
heart throb from all wfto see
him.
A two-reel Christie comedy
will be screened with this feature.
On Monday and Tuesday,
Betty Compson will be seen in
a powerful seven-part feature,
"The Law and the Woman."

Success
There i.s a current belief ampug people who have an
acquaintance with Bucce3s thai men who succeed are
endowed with the Idea Cor the sake of their vanity; but
that theory ia bunk, saya ufl exchange, pure and bIiuqIq
—bunk conceived in ignorance and accepted an truth 1k-
cauee o[ nan's innate longing to worship a hero.
The three esi entials to success are common sense, Industry and the ability to save money-  and the greatest ol
these i.'. tiie ability to Bave money, tor money is the nieasur
o£ success.
Foolish people say tins is a vulgar commercial age, and
that people place too great a value upon money, This ago
u like every other that lias passed. Always people have
desired money  -fcr monoy, like knowledge, Is power.
You hear of people who live only Cor their an, an !
people who scorn filthy lucre, but this is bunk, also. Thore
are no such people.   Everybody desires money.
Does this man paint pictures only to give his soul expression? Lose him on a desert island where there an
none to brag on his skill aud none to pay handsome price
for bis wares, and he will not touch canvas in a year.
For there arc only two rewards for BUCceaB—handclap-
ping and the pleasant jingle of cuius. And if one has the
coins, one can get along nicely without the handclapping,
if you can't save, you're a goner, success isn't in you.
If you are a young artist, money will give yun training under great masters and then enable you to make money;
if you are a young business man, money will enlarge your
field and enable you to make more money, Cm money
makes the mare, go, now as always, ami you will never
get anywhere until you learn the knack of saving it.
Tbe export trade of the United States has fallen Crom
over $8,000,000,000 to over $4,000,000,000. Well, they certainly hogged il during the war, when the Allies were
forced to buy anything Ihey could get, and the Americans
had every opportunity to capture markets they were unable
to previously. They are now considering granting government subsidies to their merchant marine, to bolster up
tboi" dwindling trade.

Emotion Kills
'it Is emotion that kills, and not
hard work," said Dr. J. Strickland
Qoodall, the well known cardiologist
in a lecture at the Institute of Hy-
glene in London. A broken heart, he
said, wus a physiological possibility.
Ile had worked out the actual mechanism whereby the heart might he
broken. He had known an animal
break its heart from joy. In sedentary
workers who took little exercise the
j heart became soft ami flabby. It was
hearts of this type which had made
the fortunes of German spas. An experiment on a man running to catch
a train showed that, before starling,
his heart did 152 foot-pounds*of work
a minute. After flnlshlng his run ii
did 300   foot-pounds.   The   result   ol
I gelling |u/o a temper, taken from actual observation, showed an increase
I of tho heart's work of 72*foot-nounds,
In an experiment of riding a bicycle
up a hill al a gradient of 1 In 10, the
otal extra work iu a ride of three und
i quarter minutes' duration amount-
id to one and a half tons.

THE HAND OF HANDS
A darling little soft white hand.,
Rose-palmed and sweet to kiss;
No scultor ever carved from stone
A fairer hand than this.
Upon my eyelids it would rest,
Or o'er my forehead pass,
Softer than ever rose-leaves fall
Upon the waving grass.
No other hand unto my heart
Could greater solace bring,
Unless, mayhap, it chance to be
Four aces and a king.
A Sure Cure for Love
Prof. YV. li. Grange, author of "Primrose Love," said iu a lecture:
"Primitive may was very cynical
about love. Modern man, under his
Lkveneer(of civilization, is just as cynical about it.
"I once heard a bricklayer and a
mason discussing love.
" 'My Idea.' said the bricklayer, 'Is
thai it you're fool enough to fall In
love, the cure Is,to run away.'
"The mason gave a sneering laugh.
" 'Yes, thai a sure cure,' he said,
'provided you run away Willi Hie girl.'"
