Thursday Morning
Institution last Monday night One
of the most pleasant times ever spent
was hod by all and the ladles are to
be congratulated on the delicious refreshments that were served. People
from all over the district, especially
from Courtenay, Comox and Union
Bay were present and many pretty
< gowns were In evidence.
I The exact amount made by the
I ladles has not yet been given out but
| many think that two hundred dollars
i would be a conservative estimate.
Friday and Saturday are big days
for theatregoers, as the big English
production, "The Sporting Karl," wlll
be shown at the Ilo-llo Theatre.
"The Sporting Earl" ls one of the
most popular English pictures that
ever came over to Canada. It Is
somewhat on the style of the former
big American successos, "Mickey" and
"The Whip," having all the delightful
comedy ot the one and the hurricane
action of tbe other—thrills lights and
steeplechases.
Sir Horace Pllklngton, Baronet,
leaves an eccentric will, by virtue of
which one of his nephews Inherits bis
enUre fortune, and the other nephew
afterwards known as "The Sporting
Earl," is left the Baronet's racing
stable. "Ti;j Snorting Karl." without a rlngle ha'penny, to his name, is

wMeh Includes "Cheerio ' iff ti Mb'"
know nthroughout English sporting
circles as the fastest and gamest
horse that ever went over the Ascot
water jump. The picture is full ot
laughs, thrills,. fights, ateeplechaes;
a big Ore, and centrea around the
story of the Baronet's will, which is
nothing short of whizz-bang.
The cast includes Victor Herbert as
"The Sporting Earl," and Lillian Hall-
Davis as the girl In the case.
Together with this super-special
bill, will be shown Charles Jones la
"Not a Drum Was Heard."
C. G. I. T. GAVE MOTHER
AND DAUGHTER BANQUET
The Ladles' Auxiliary of the O.W.
V.A., gave an Easter treat for their
kiddies on Wednesday from 3 to 6 In
the Association Hall.     Tables  were
set for 64 children and were prettily
decorated  with  ferns  and  Miliums.
The happy crowd of youngsters were
waited on by the ladies and judging |
by their reluctance to leave the table I
there must have been more than plates
and cups and saucers on  It.     The
Auxiliary   takes   this   opportunity  of j
thanking nil those who so generously
donated to the treat thereby bringing i
joy and happiness to more than one
tiny  tot  whose  daddy  served  "over |
there." I
An additonal 10,000 ballots were issued during the week, mak-'
ing a total of 500,000 votes, whicli if sold, will make $5,000.00.

COURTENAY,—The home of Mr.

Ure last night Mr. Oluen's loss Ib
partly covered by Insurance.
COURTENAY, April 26.—Three
weeks ago Cecil (Cougar) Smith and
Ronald Stewart left Courtenay for
the Nlmpktsh Lake and river country. Mr. Smith la the well known big
game hunter, trapper aud guide wbo
has shown so many big game hunters
where and how to'meet Buccesi) in
B.C. Woods. Mr. Stewart is the Provincial game warden and lover of nature, known throughout the district
for his fearlessuess in enforcing the
provisions of the game act. They
were sent north by the Gome Board
to destroy panthers butwere unsuccessful. Not only this but misfortune attended them on their mission.
They lost a dog and another had n
log broken. A man by the name of
Gibbous had laid a line of traps to
ensnare a cougar. Smith and Stewart had been warned to this effect.
Every precaution was taken to keep
the dogs clear. A bear had been
killed up the valley a short distance
and in the night the dogs broke away
and went on a visit to the carcass.
One of the dogs waa caught and fell
over a log, strangled; the other suffered as noted above and was brought
home yeBterady.
As far aB destruction of cougar is
concerned the trip was unsuccessful,
but evidence waB gathered showing
that all the damage to the elk herds
in the district is not being done by
predatoy animate. The calves have
been destroyed by human beings. The
party came south to Campbell River
on the steamer Oardena and to Courtenay by motor cor.
COURTENAY,-On Thursday night,
while working with the acetylene
welding plant at Blunt and Ewart's
Garage, Mr. William Dingwall met
with a painful accident that might
mean the loss ot his eye. A gas explosion occurred, burning him severely about the face. He waa rushed to
the hospital In the new ambulance.

If you were paid for putting into words the perfect

Because that's what 1000 men told tn a really gone

Now wo ask von to judge how well wc vc put thoae
three requisites Into a shaving cream. At our expense.
We've put it up to millions oi men. And, having

There arc 5 distinct superiorities, shaving odt'im-
lagts, in Palmolive Shaving Cream. It cost us IS
months' work, 1.10 laboratory experiments, to perlcct
them.  Now judge our work.
You'll find cream multiplying itself 250 times In
luxurious lather.
You'll find that lather softens the most unruly beard
in one minute—without any irritating "rubbing in.
You'll find the lather remains rich and creamy for
10 minutes on your face, if necessary.
You'll find cutting easier, cleaner, because bubbles
of extra strength hold cucli hair erect. This is important Finally, you'll marvel at the cool, soothed after

GETTIN' MAD
David Harum, that keen, kindly,
generous neighbor and firm friend in
Edward Xoyes Westcott's famous
piece of fiction you will remember,
hud for a motto in a "hoss" trade:
•"DO unto the other fellow the way
In- d like to do unto you—an' do It
fust."
But one dny he mot his match. David bought u "hoss" of a stranger who
guaranteed lhe "boss to stand without
hltcliln'". The next day David Durum tried out his new horBe and thc
critter stopped ill the middle of the
road, and, as David said, "kind a'
humped UP a little, and stood like hed
took root." In other words ,tho
horse was balky. It would "stand
without liitchin'."
And here you get more of David's
philosophy: "There was times when
If he'd fall down dead. 1 wouldn't hev
ftggered on puttin' a band on my hat.
but it. odn't pay lo get mad with it
hoss—"
Positively! It never pays to get
mad with a boss or a flivver or with
a human being. Getting angry with
anyone or anything will never get
you out of a bad deal, but It will gel
you In where you cun not get out
without a cost that yon cannot afford
to pay.
Times have changed In this "gel-
ting mad" business as Ihey have
changed In mnny others. The old
type of red-faced, cursing neighbor
who raised Cain, got mad and blew
up at thc least provocation is rapidly
disappearing. Men are learning to
control their tempers as n matter of
economy. A mad fit produces high
blood pressure .upsets the digestive
system und really is as bad as a spell
of sickness. Folks with horse sense
are learning that it doesn't pay to get
mad any more than it pays to get
drunk.
From handling "hossos" to handling humans Is not n far cry. You
notice David Harum said, "it don't
never pay to get mad with a boss."
Ydu can get mad at a horse, but not
"with'' a boss, nnd then expect favorable results.
.Most of us get mad with others.
When two get mad at the same time
you know what happens.
It is a good thing when you feel
that you must get mad at somebody
lo go off by yourself. Insist on being alone when you feel the mad spell
coming on. It will save your reputation for being explosive and dangerous, for many of us are handicapped
by tempers.
A little temper is not a bad thing
in itself. There is such a thing as
righteous wrath. But when your temper and the other fellow's become
twins and go off together then there
is apt to be fireworks. You keep
cool while the other fellow gets hot
and you will come out ahead every
time.

Do you get the fullest use of your telephone? Of
course, you use it to call up a friend, or place an ordsv
with a tradesman, but do you always thinks of it wh>n
you need to do something personally? How many
times would the telephone save you time? If a business man, how much money would the telephone save
you? Many trips could be saved, if the telephone
were used instead.
The telephone gives direct and prompt communication with that personal touch which brings both
parties to a conversation close together. That ia why
it has become one of the greatest factors of business
und social life.

LAMPS
ELECTRO-AUTOMATES
•—(AUTOMATIC ELECTRIC LAMPS).
NO BATTERIES! • NO ACIDS!
JbOeUUWILL   LAST   A   LIFE-TIME «•>**•"*'
Practical, Durable, Alwaya Ready on Land, Under
Water, Any Climate, Anywhere
The Eleetro Automate Is an Electric Lamp made tn Prance without a battery or refills, and ot a new conception. It ls a perfect
machine; the result of years of lest ln the plants of the manufacturers lu Switzerland and France :: This marvellous little
pocket lamp, embodying simplicity, reliability and compactness,
weighs only 12 ounces.     It ls patented In all countries.
The dynamo, with permanent magnet, based on new methods.
gives dense magnetic fields of perfect concentration, which surrounds the Induction without loss of magnetic dispersion, and
permits the maximum exploitation of the energy.
Construction of these lamps Is very carefully carried out by
skilled Swiss clock end scientific Instrument makers :: Electro
Automate Lamps are tight and dust-proof. They can be used
in all climates, Including equatorial regions. They will everywhere render the utmost service, giving a clear white light, without fear of the bulb burning out or the generator booming
warm.
All Electro Automate Lamps are guaranteed for six months, conditionally that they are not tampered with. With reasonable
care they will last for years. Any part can be renewed at slight
cost.    Lamps are provided with a pocket for extra bulbs.
This lamp Is especially useful to travellers, tourists, marine and
mining engineers, automoblllsts, dairymen, in fact everybody.
They are indispensable on life-boats and rafts, where a light ls
needed tbat will not be extinguished by wind or wave :: Every
mine should be provided with one or more of these lamps at lis
portal or entrance, for the convenience ot the employee or official
whose work takes him iu and out of the mine at irregular Intervals. It ls the cheapest and best' light on the market fur this
purpose :: Marine engineers welcome Electro Automate ln their
engine room. It saves them from the annoyance and loss of
time occasioned by the unreliability of battery lamps when they
wish to locale trouble or find something in n hurry :: Pilots aro
favorable to these little lamps because they are always standing
by ready and able to do their part ln any and all kinds of
weather. They are hardy little fellows and will Btand any
amount of knocking about, even to the bulbs, which are superior
to any others on the market:: Mushers over the northern trulls
take those lamps In preference to others, because they give a
never ending light and add lees than a pound ot weight to their
outfits. The winds oan't blow them out and the Bnow or wet can
not short elrcuit them.
DIRECTIONS
The working of this self-generating lamp Is very simple. Pull tho
lever completely and sharply with the Angers and let go, allowing
it to open fully In order to take another full stroke. Strokes
should be even and sharp tor best results. This lamp is lhe
only one of Its weight that will give a perfect light. The bearings of this lamp should be oiled about once a month.

COME men arc stamp collectors, some play golt, yet others go off
** across the world in search of big game. Some hunt hidden treasures
whether of an archaealogical nature or the raw material as found in
the Canadian mine. To some men these things are merely hobbies, to
ethers       .   .   a living.
Some businesses and some occupations call for a breaking down of
the cast-iron partitions which we are apt to erect between what the
world is pleased to call "a living" ind a "hobby."
When we have worked for some time at earning a "living' we are
apt to be suddenly aware that something of strength, something of alertness, some 'virtue" has gone out of us. And in order to get back, we
set about recreating that lost strength. By nature man is not a "specialist." Yet we al) know, to our cost, thc tendency of modern business-life
is to make him so. The pressure of "business of which we boast, the
system, the competition, of which we think so highly, as to be always
in pursuit of it, is in reality a Juggernaut, a fierce feudal overlord of
the worst type, since we are in bondage to it without knowing it. We
aerially take our chains lovingly to our hearts
Sometimes the awakening conn.-s in the form of a rude shock. A
physician's dictum. But as often us not in quite another form. That
subtle and yet tangible shock received when some younger, fresher mind,
lome "mere chit of a fellow" beat? us at our own game. That is the
awakening that hurts Because w<- know that at the club, other men
are faying "Fell down on the Job." Whereas the truth is, "Stuck to his
Job. not wisely but too well," would he so much nearer the truth.
When civilliatlon first began its pressure When business first
began to be so intense we (elt we "could not leave it," the number of
"break-downs" waa terrific. But Just about that time we began to see
that to go down and out was not playing the game, but surrendering,
surrendering not altogether to pressure from without but to weakness
within—a failure to stand-up against "fearful odds"—unexpected lunges.
And io we began to cast sdoui for a means of strength—that iron-
strength of nerve—which would stund up squarely under ordinary fire
and rise like a well-trimmed ship to meet the waves of unexpected storms.
This thing has been thought out and acted upon as a positive condition of modern life and businest we may say within the past twenty
years, and more firmly yet within the last ten years.
Men now go away and leave their business at least once each year.
And the wiser take a vacation not only in summer but in winter as well.
The more intense the business, the header the fire, the greater need for
re-mforcing that strength which Is burned out. The greater need for
the gathering up of new Ideas.
So, when you tee a business-nnm, a banker or railroad president or
a company official, or any other desk-ribbon Jockey casting the fly on1
the French River, or exhibiting the skin of a Nipigon trout sketched
on a board, pleased as any school boy who has carried his bat out at,
cricket, or kicked a goal for the school team, you know him not so1
much for a great sport as for a gn„d business man. The very fact thatl
he belongs to those who get back to Nature wins your confidence You:
know him for a man who has the business situation of the day in hand.l
One who is abreast—ahead even- of that tide which surges in the affairs'
el men.    A live wire," competing youth, calls him.—Victoria Havv»»rd

used; of the costs of maintaining railroads to ship the coal, with their
necessary machine shops, car shops,
foundaries, rolling stock, wharves and
overhead charges.
Expensive Work
"Nothing is said of the cost of exploring the area with diamond drills,
of running tunnels and shafts through
barren ground, of driving slopes and
air passages, ot timbering and ventilation problems. But all these enter
Into the cost of mining coal.
"Then there Ib a high percentage nf
wastage ln washing operations," he
continued. "At Ladysmlth alone, in
1923, more than 40,000 tons were lost
In this operation, which cleans the
smaller coal, washing away the shale
and dirt. While this loss was not of
coal, lt was brought to the surface
and paid for as such."
Mr. Graham declared that mining
operations were conducted ns economically as possible In nil tho Vancouver
Island mines. Owing to the frequent
faults and geological formations tt
was often Impossible to mine by machinery. The Increased use of fuel oil
in Vancouver Industries had been a
great marketing loss to the mines of
| the Island.
No Coal Combine
At Cumberland the mines only averaged about three day's work each
week.     Other mines also were cither
working short time or were producing
less coal than formerly, employing
fewer men. Little If any development
work was being undertaken, he declared.
In concluding, Mr. Oraham declared
that there existed no coal combine to
keep up prices. Coal prices were high
in the East. In Nova Scotia, where
mining was tess expensive, he said,
coal was retailed for practically the
same price as ln Vancouver.
"The mine operators would be delighted if they were able to reduce the
cost of coal to you here, for it would
mean a greater use of coal, and consequently greater production, more employment for those already working,
and additonal employment for others."
he said.

Open Surgery
In King Block
Dr. R. P. Christie announces that he
lias moved bis Dental Surgery from
tho Wlllard Block to the King Block
where Dr. Arthur II. Wilkiuson will
be in charge. Improvements ure now
under way.
Dr. Wilkinson needs no introduction
'.o iho Cumberland public as he is
well known in sportiug and social
circles. He has recently completed
his dental course at Portland Dental
College where he graduated with honors.
The people of Cumberland will be
j able to obtain the very latest and Improved methods in dental science, es.
pecially ln the treatment of children's
teeth to which Dr. Wilkinson intends
to give his special attention. Dr.
Christie will devote his personal supervision to plate work, having had
years of experience tn this branch of
dental science.
One of the most Important branches in dentistry, If not the most Important, la the care of children's teeih
| for the future welfare of the child depends upon sound teeth, and the fu-
] ture health of a nation is dependent
: upon the health of the growing geu-
| eratlon.
{    A child with decayed baby    teeth
| which lead to abcesses, will not have
| sound permanent teeth and more than
likely they wlll come in crooked with
tho consequents of a deformed face,
[ tonsil and adenoid troubles, gettersl
| pour health and being mentally hackwork In their studies and other pursuits.
Regular visits to tbe dentist from
three years of age and on would prevent these misfortunes and a great
financial saving would be made, for
decay could be checked ln time by a
small tilling aud prophylactic wotk
which would cause absolutely no pain
to the child .
Dentistry has made great guides of
late years ln the science of artificial
teeth making, which is a fortunate
consolation for those people who have
lost their natural teeth through mis-
