Comox Defeated
In Opening Game
;    Of New League
.'-': COMOX, Feb.. :1—Showing a complete reversal ot form, Cumberland's
'male entry In the now "3 C's" basketball league—Cumberland, Comox and
-Courtenay—demonstrated the fine
points of the game to the Comox Ave
'In tho Community hall ,Comox last
■Saturday night. Tho opening score
came one minute after the game had
..started, when Stewart, for Cumberland tossed in n beauty from under
thc basket.   From that time on thc
• visitors  wore  never bended,  running
. out after the full forty minutes with
-.a, score nf 38 to their opponents' 18.
/The Cumberland men were somewhat handicapped In starting by the
low celling nnd the narrowness of the
hall, but soon found their bearings
nnd showed tlie Comox men just how
i basketball   should   be   played.     The
i "perfect understanding of the visitors
Jiinde a great Impression on the large
number  of  spectators.   For  Comox,
, Butler and Dowriey played brilliantly
although outclascd, and for Cumberland it would be difficult to single out
'any one player as being better than
.- tbe others, although Stewart scored
over   half   the   bnskets.     These two
; -teams have met twice before and
Comox emerged winner In both games
(exhibition).
: Earlier in the evening the Yellowjackets Ladies team of Cumberland
was defeated fry the Comox girls, the
score being 6-5. Once again the low
celling proved a handicap to the visit-
' prs. otherwise tlie Bcore might have
been  totally  different.  •
An exhibition of how basketball
should  not   be  played  was given by
; two intermediate men's teams-Comox
versus Courtenay. Everything was
allowed including biting and scratching; Courtenay  won,  by  what  score
■ no one knew or enred.   This was only
' a minor detail anyway.
"Heck" Stewart, of Cumberland,
handled the whistle very satisfactorily, favoring neither side, both In the
men's senior and ladies' senior games
No referee was necessary in the intermediate game. No one would have
heeded him  anyway.

One i-iiniinuiiieation only was rond,
this being a short note from the
Board of School Trustees, enclosing
their I92i; estimates, amounting in all
to $84,680,00. The council gave those
its very careful consideration but
could find not ono Instance whore
the amount estimated was too largo
or too small for the various purposes
to which the money will bo put.
Accordingly tho estimates were accepted as presented by the Scliool
Board, (These estimates were published in full in last week's Islander),
Reports of committees occupied but
a few minutes. For the Board of
Works, Aid, Jeffrey Informed the
meeting thai repairing carried out

the decision of the council but this
was laid on the table until the forthcoming meeting. There being nothing

EDWARD W. BICKLE
FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 5, 1926.
THE ROAD TO SUCCESS
The easy roads are crowded,
And the level roads are jammed;
The pleasant little rivers
With the drifting folks are crammed.
But off yonder where it's rocky,
Where you get a better view,
You will find the ranks are thinning
And the travellers are few.
Where the going is smooth and pleasant,
You will always find the throng;
For the many, more's the pity,
Seem to like to drift along.
But the steps that call for courage,
And the task that is hard to do,
In the end results in glory
For the never-wavering few.
NEWSPAPERS ARE
BETTER NOW
A discussion is now going
in certain parts of the
country as to what a
newspaper should or should not print. The
discussion will not prove anything because the
character of a newspaper is largely determined
by the character of those who conduct it and the
standard varies as widely as that of the men in
charge.
The average newspaper is better than it used
to be. There is no doubt of that in the minds
of intelligent men who know what it once was.
It is more accurate in the publication of news,
and takes more and greater pains to give every
side a hearing. It is this increased solicitude
and vigilance which leads to increased complaint
of intrusion. Reporters, owing to this anxiety
of the newspapers to print no story without giving everybody concerned a chance to be interviewed, often become obnoxious to people who
have nothing to say.     Since being interviewed
no longer carries with it the distinction it once
did, there are many who, deigning to escape an
interview which would result in embarassing
questions, resent the intrusions of reporters and
then cry out about the inaccuracies of a sensational press.
It is all very perplexing. Men who have been
in the work for a long time are not wholly able
to understand the lines of present evolution in
newspaper making. It is only those who have
never touched the work at all who have a complete and masterly grasp of the entire subject.
AH that the veteran journalist is sure of is
that the average in journalism is higher than
it was a quarter of a century ago. There is
less of epithet, always a sign of weakness, and
less of crudeness in preparation of material and
presentation of facts. None but sober men can
keep the hot pace which the journalism of this
day sets, and unless sobriety can be more inaccurate than inebriety, then everybody must admit
that the opportunities for raising the average of
newspaper work are excellent.
BEAUTIES
OF WINTER
The beauty of summer is so apparent that all must see at least
some portion of it. But to recognize beauty in a winter landscape is largely
a matter of training. The radiant days in our
northern winters where earth and air seem to
fairly scintillate glory, force themselves upon
us. We must study to see beauty in the "gray
days." It is there. Find it in the harmony
of color in the barks of those trees by the wayside ; in the green-white of the pine outside your
window; in the red streak of sunset in the western gray; in the hush that unfolds the late afternoon.
Children's eyes may be trained to see these
and many other beauties of ordinary winter days.
A teacher must at first call attention to these
hidden sign of Nature's holiness. The time will
come when she will find her pupils seeing for
themselves. Then Ave minutes a day spent in
hearing what they have observed, may impress
upon their minds this habit of observation to find
concealed beauties. It is worth impressing.
Perhaps some of our children will carry this out
into their moral lives; there it will be the habit
of "looking on the bright side of things." The
world needs optimists. Therefore, let us not
count any effort in vain that results in hopeful,
sunny characters.

effected as formerly ascertained. The
mayor considered lt an important
matter that should be considered
further. By-laws then occupied the
attention of tbe council tor a consider
able time. Tbe 1926 Municipal Revenue By-law us submitted by aid.
Pearse was gone Into. This measure
provided for all trade and business
licenses and may be said to be a complete revision of former bylaws regarding tax revenues. The measure
passed its third and final reading on
motion of Aid. Macdonald. Other
by-laws to pass their final readings at
this meeting were those providing
for the purchase of public weigh scale
and their installation and for the purchase of a public park; and for the
issuing ot debentures up to $1100 tor
this purpose. These two measures
were submitted to the rate payers at
the recent municipal elections ln tbe
form of plebiscites when both received the necessary support. A letter
from Mr. John Sutton, secretary (or
the Police commissioners, recommend
ed the paying of $90 per month to tbe
night police man. On motion of aid.
Douglas the recommendation was bus
tallied. Dr. Butters was re-appointed
City Health Offlcer tor the year. Aid.
| Lloyd brought up the matter of the
government wharf which the alder-
j men agreed needed renovating. It
': was decided, however that the matter
should be brought Up at tho next
meeting of the Courteuay-Comox
Board of Trade.
I At a late hour aid. McDonald reported for tbe recent delegation to
Victoria regarding hard surfacing tbe
i Island highway through the city of
{Courtenay. His report showed tbat
the delegation hud met with a certain
, amount of success; and the council
! Is hopeful that aome progress may be
made this year.

POPULAR RECIPES
Casserole of Lamb With  Vegetables
Oven dishes are becoming more
popular because the appearance of
the food is more appetizing than that
prepared on top of tlie stove. And
experienced housewives who are using
self-basting enameled ware roasters,
realize that tills utensil Is best adapted to meat dishes where basting
plays such an important part in the
flavor and browning of the roast. And
after the meal ls cooked, enameled
ware is most easily cleaned, no matter bow thick the gravy.
A wholesome baked dinner consisting of meat and vegetables can be
prepared in self-basting enameled
ware roaster, wliieh saves considerable time. All the real work Is In
the preparation—the cooking only requires an oven of the proper temperature and   timing.
Wipe two pounds of lamb shoulder
or neck chops with a damp cloth,
trim, sprinkle with salt, pepper and
flour and brown quickly in a hot,
greased frying pan. Place in a self-
hasting roaster and add two cupfuls
of diced carrots and a dozen small
white onions. Add two cupfuls of
water to the fat in the frying pan;
let boll up once and then pour over
thc meat, adding more water If It
Is necessary, Just to cover the chops.
Cover tbe roaster and bake In a
moderate oven for one hour. Then
add one teaspoonful of salt, six small
potatoes cut in halves, and two cupfuls of canned peas. Cover closely
again and continue baking one hour
longer. Thicken the gravy slightly
before  serving.

Onward rushed the howling thousands, infuriated to such a
pitch in their chase after the Phantom that they were unmindful of the two lovers in their.path. A few steps and
they would be trampled to death. Would they stop or swerve
from their vengeful course? This dramatic scene is but one

An advocate of our decimal system of currency refers to the well-
understood feature, that the removal
of decimal points, reducing-all to
cents does not change the value of
any expressed amount of money. For
example, $90.60. Removing the decimal points we have 9060 cents, the
same value in money. In gterllng
pounds, shillings, pence and farthings
there ls only one amount of money
which admits of removal at the divid
ing point, reducing the figures to
farthings, without disturbing the expressed value, and it is quite a puzzle to discover tt.
Ca nyou find a certain sum In
English money which will represent
an equivalent value In farthings
when the dividing points are removed?

among the addresses was tbat of Mr.
Carrick, president of the Burns'
Fellowship in Vancoucer. In his reply to the toast to "The immortal
memory," proposed by Mr. William
i Duncan, he described Burns as the
! bard of the common people, who
! without any blue blood In his veins,
'sang his "way into the hearts of his
: countrymen, and as a great democrat
who beautified Scotland more by tbe
sentiment of his written word than
had any generals by military conquests.
Mr.  Carrick,  in  a  masterful  discourse,   defended   the   great   poet's
alleged attitudes towards women, and

towards the cburcb. No one had done
more for the church of Scotland since
John Knox, the speaker declared
He did not suppose Burns was any
saint, but a sinner ln common with
all mankind. He also very clearly
showed Burns' attitude toward cant
and hypocritical religionists of bis
day, witb apt quotations, as well as
to his appreciation for the genuine
ecclesiastics ot his time.
"A Daniel had come among us,"
the speaker said when he referred
to a series of seven articles contributed by Sir James Crichton Brown to
the Glasgow Dally Herald, which in
the pure light of science proved conclusively that to do the work accomplished by Burns made it absolutely
Impossible for him to have been the
debuuchee some of the earlier biographers would have us believe.
These earlier accounts were in fact
solecisms and should never have been
written. A thousand years from now
his real attitude towards the feminine
would be better appreciated but we
could never repay tbe gift that we
owed him. Mr. Carrick's address
lasted an hour, at the finish of which
he left the poet hero upon an exalted
pedestal. Later in the evening Mr.
Carrick entertained the large gathering in a lighter vein, when he showed
a marked diversified ability.

COURTENAY, Jan. 29— Once again
the basement of St. George's United
Church was filled to capacity on
Thursday night for the purpose of
celebrating what Mr. Walter Brown,
president of the local St. Andrews
Society, who was chairman for the
evening, announced as the one hundred and sixtieth anniversary of the
birthday of the famous Scottish poet,
Bobble Burns. Much credit was due
the Ladies Aid for the splendid repast
provided and well served. There
were upwards of one hundred and
seventy guests to cater for, which
must have entailed considerable work.
The proceedings opened to the
skirl ot the pipes in the hands of
piper W. W. Stewart. Following thc
Kilmarnock grace, the excellent repast, which consisted of roast turkey
(bubbly jock), cranberry sauce, and
boiled ham and vegetables, the Haggis
was solemnly paraded around the
supper hall, borne by Master Inglis,
Margaret Brown and Wallle Thompson and proceeded by the pipes. The
procession eventually came to a halt
in front of the Toastmaster, where
the address to the Haggis was rendered by the Bard, Mr. John Inglis.
The Haggis having been duly punctured during this ceremony, was then
passed round to the guests. Coffee,
tea and sweets followed and a capital
musical programme ensued which included piano and violin selections
by Miss Mcintosh and Mr. R. Duncan,
part songs by the Courtenay Octette,
(Messrs. J. Aston, V. Bayly, W. A. W.
Hames, B. Harvey, J. M. Mitchell, J.
Macintyre and Herbert Smith, accompanied by Mr. C. W. Slllenee at
the piano. Master J. Inglis then recited. A trio consisting of the Misses
J. McPherson, M. Sutherland, and E.
Rossiter rendered "Annie Laurie."
Other vocalists were Mrs. T. PretBel,
Mr. John Stalker, and Mr. J. P. Mabin
of Vancouver. The star turn of the
evening was however, an original
recitation by Mr. John Inglis, concerning a lard pail, which kept the
audience amused throughout its many
verses.
Mr. Carrick, president of the Burns'
Fellowship in Vancouver, also contributed much towards the evening's
enjoyment.
The Toast List
The King was proposed by Mr.
Walter Brown, Neighbor Societies by
Mr. J. Rodger, who said that the date
was also the anniversary of Mr. Alec
Urquhart's birthday, who was eighty-
one yearS of age. He was delighted
to see Mr. Urquhart present and, on
behalf of the St. Andrews Society,
wished bim many happy returns of
tlie day. .Mr. Strachan replied ln a
very able manner, and Mr. John
Sutherland, of Cumberland, also replied with a neat and flattering
speech. The Immortal Memory, the
toast of the evening, was proposed
by .Mr. Wm. Duncan and responded
to by Mr. Carrick as mentioned ln
another column. To Mr. Frank McPherson was assigned the toast to {
"Canada." The night was not the
occasion on which to glorify Canada,
he said, but Scotland and all things
Scotch. He noticed, however, that
Canada was a country that many
Scotsmen preferred. The toast to
the Ladies was ably proposed In a
very humorous speech by Mr. J. W.
Voting and was replied to by Mrs.
Sutherland who ably substituted for
Miss B. Duncan. A Very enjoyable
evening came to a close with the
singing of "Auld Lang Syne."
Stevens. Mr. J, McCord captured the
booby prize. After refreshments had
been served the tables were cleared
and an enjoyable dance tomusic supplied by Messrs. J. Carwithen, Fred
Wood and Stanley Venables was kept
going until 2 a.m.
It brings added glory to the world's
screen   "The Phantom of the Opera."

January 12th, 1926,
To the Board of School Trustees,
Cumberland, B. C.
Dear Sirs and Mesdames :--
I have audited the books and accounts of the Board for the
year ending December 31, 1925 and the attached statement is,
in my opinion, drawn up so as to show a true and correct account
of the operations of the Board for that period.
The balance on deposit in the Royal Bank of Canada on the
close of business December 31, 1925 was $7,311.86 but outstanding cheques amounting to $495.98 will reduce this to $6,815.88.
Of this amount $6,794.53 is Public School funds and the balance,
$21.35, belongs to the Night School Account.
All accounts for the year have, as far as I know, been settled
by the Treasurer.
The increase in the item of Accounts Receivable, (City of
Cumberland), is for arrears of School Taxes for 1925 not yet
paid over.
Yours truly,
R. J. SELFE, Auditor.
