CUMBORLAND, BRITI8H COLUMBIA    FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 18, 1925

Cliffe Broke Right Hand
In Bout With Reddick
LOCAL MAN MAY
RECEIVE NOMINATION?
One feature of the Cllffe-Reddlck
fight In Vancouver last Friday night,
wblch the Vancouver papers failed to
make mention of, waa the fact that
Cliffe broke his right hand ln the
third round. How he ever carried on
with this handicap and came back so
strongly In the eighth, ninth, and
tenth rounds districts tans, who saw
th* fight, are at a loss to know.
Roy lost the chance of a lifetime in
the first round when he could have
sent Reddick to slumber-land with
very little difficulty, had he followed
up his advantage. Again ln the second, and in the ninth and tenth the
fight was all Cliffe's but the knockout
punch failed to materialize. The champion took the third, got an even break
ln the fourth and seventh, and took
the fifth and sixth by a wide margin.
As the Vancouver Sun says: "Give
Cliffe one year more In the ring and
he will make a sucker of Reddick. He
has a good left that he doesn't us-i
often enough, but he can fight and he
can take It.'
It ls being freely said, both here and
In Courtenay, thnt Cliffe was overtrained. His manager, Lonnie Austin, ls pushing him forward too fast
with nothing In view but money making. Cliffe has proved that he bas
championship ability but if Austin
doesn't change his tactics the Courtenay boy wlll never be anything better than a third-rater.
Fight by Rounds
Round one—They sparred. Reddick started throwing his left and
Cliffe seemed over-cautious. Cliffe
shot two hard rights In quick succession and Reddick backed away.    Red
dick landed a stiff left and missed a
right uppercut started from the floor.
Cliffe dazed the champion with another high-shot right.    Cliffe's round.
Round two—Cliffe rushed with a
barrage of rights and lefts to the
champion's jaw and body. Reddick
backed away, staggered on his feet
and fell Into a clinch. They fought
at a furious pace and again Cliffe's
snaky right connected hard to Red
dick's jaw.     Cliffe.
Round three—Reddick rushed viciously at thc bell and sank both hands
Into Cliffe's midriff. Cliffe covered up.
He looked worried. Reddick smashed Cliffe on Ihe mouth with a stabbing
left and the blood squirted from a
badly-cut Up. Another left to the
mouth slowed the challenger appreciably. Reddick backed away with
his opponent plainly In distress. Red-
dick's round.
Round four—Cliffe shot his right as
they met in the centre. The blow
landed high and opened a cut over
Roddick's left eye, which bled copiously. Again Reddick smashed his
left to that sore mouth and Cliffe drop
ped his head to clinch. Reddick shot
a right uppercut and missed. He
tried the same blow again and was
wide. The champion had regained
his confidence and was leading at the
hell.     Reddick.
Round five—Reddick sank his right
to the body.' Cliffe's left caught Reddick flush on the nose. The champion staggered back and again Cliffe
drove his left to the same tender spot.
Reddick flashed In to miss witb three
uppercuts In a row. He landed a
vicious right to Cliffe's damaged* eye
and Cliffe backed away as the bloo:l
spurted from It in a stream. Reddick landed hard to the jaw with his
right, his best punch of the night, and
Cliffe was groggy. Reddick moved
in poised to strike and they circled
the ring three times with no blows
landed. Reddick sank his right to
the kidneys and followed with a vlc-

various political parties.     Today the

If that be the case It ls the second

! Cumberland  has  thus  been honored
for it is well known that another of
ber prominent   citizens   could   have
been    the    Conservative    candidate.
Cumber!: nd Is therefore given credit
for possessing men of parliamentary
mental calibre.
The Independent convention will be
held at Cumberland on Wednesday,

Mr. Nell will meet with any opposition
at this meeting. and bis nomination
will be just a ratification of what his
chief supporters haVe done to date.
Both of the candidates In the running
are residents of the constituency and
have been for many years, which is as
it should be, for a member who resides without the confidence of the
constituency he represents cannot
hope to give the same service as one

INSPECTOR SEALS
CITY'S LARGE SCALES
The city's huge scales, situated immediately outside the city hall, will
not be used again this year. When
the Inspector of weights and measures paid his regular visit last week
he found them to be out approximately sixty pounds In two thousand
and accordingly sealed them up for
the balance of the year. The joke
lies ln the-fact thai the Council was
soaked $4.00 for the inspection and
now can't use the scales. If the
give sixty pounds short weight In
every ton the city ought to And a
ready sale for them In one of the
larger cities of the province. Somo

FOWLER'S GOAL
GAVE CUMRERLAND
DESERVING VICTORY
Fowler's splendid goal about three
minutes from time was enough to
give Cumberland a well-deserved 4-3
victory over the Veterans In the opening game in Victoria ot the newly-
formed Pacific Coast Football League
at the Royal Athletic Park last Saturday afternoon.
Cumberland had a big advantage
over the Victoria eleven In combination play, and this feature was noticeable all through the game. The forwards worked well together, and lt
was only through the fine work of
the Vets' back division that they failed to score more often. The Veterans, however, have a good team, and
with plenty of practice they should
be able to give any of the teams In the
league a good battle. The shooting
of both teams was very poor.
The Veterans were considerably
weakened through the absence of
Harry Copas, who failed to turn out,
and Chris Owens, who is on the sick
list. If these men had been on the
team the score might have been different.
At thc end of the first half the score
stood tied, 2 goals each, MacDonald
and Plump scoring for Cumberland
and Cameron and Phillips doing the
trick for the Vets. It was also In
this period that Cameron and Conti
accidentally collided, both being laid
out for a few minutes. As a result
Sacki ls today carrying a nasty gasli
over his right eye.
The second half was much slower
than the first but it was ln this period
that, the best football was shown
Young Walker, Cumberland's goalie,
made a most spectacular save of one
of Coulter's ground shots, being
knocked out In the attempt. Contl
put the visitors in the lead when he
drove MacDonald's center Into the
goal. The Vets got the equalizer from
a penalty when Marshall handled the
ball, hut with only three minutes to

Back Division
The selection committee of tbe Cum
berland Football Club has made an
Important change in the defense division of the team for tomorrow's
game at Nanaimo with the Veterans.
Marshall, the youthful full-back who
was relegated from junior ranks last
season, has been dropped from the
line-up for this match at least, aud
his place will be taken by Sacki Contl,
captain of the team. Ferguson,
formerly one of the reserves, will fill
Conti's old position at centre-half.
Whether the change is for the better
will not be known until after the
game.
The Nanaimo Veterans is not a
team to be trifled with and the committee was well aware of the fact In
making the change but on paper the
team looks good to local fans. Here
it Is: Walker; Mortimer and Conti;
Monaghan, Ferguson and Brake; Ban
nerman, Plump, Fowler, MacDonald
and Hitchens.
The game is scheduled to start at
4:00 p.m. on the Central Sports
Ground with Mat Outness in charge.
It will be Cumberland's third start In
the Pacific Coast League.

FORMER GOVERNMENT
AGENT AT ANYOX IS
TRANSFERRED HERE
Mr. John Conway, Government
agent at Anyox for the past Ave years,
arrived with his family in Cumberland last Monday afternoon to take up
the position of Government agent left
vacant by the death some time ago of
Mr. John Baird.
The new agent has been In the
Government service for the past
twenty years. A pioneer of Stewart,
he hns held positions at Prince Rupert, Port Simpson and Stewart, going back to the northern mining centre for a second time. Mr. Conway's
territory at Anyox Included the Stewart and Alice mining camps, and he
speaks highly of the development of
the Toric and other groups ot the latter camp. He expects substantial
developments at Anyox under thc
new general manager of the Granby
Consolidated Mining and Smelting
Company, which it Is presumed will
have a reflex action of the activities
of thc company's colliery at Cassidy.
on Ibis Island.

Whyte and Campbell performed
well on the back division for the

the shining lights for Cumberland.

Favored In Cumberland
Graham Wins
Semi-Final
Probably the best match ever played
on local tennis courts was last evening when M. Graham defeated his
brother Tom in the semi-Anal round
of the flub championship in men's
singles. Mort won in straight sets.
11-9, 7-5, but it was a terriAc struggle—the score indicates tbat. The
brothers were on the top of their form
but Tom was lacking when it came to
pulling himself through the pinches
and bad to admit defeat.
The remaining match between M.
Oraham and H. Stewart, the finalist
In the lower bracket, will be played
off probably over the week-end. If
the former wins he will take permanent possession of the cup. having won

MAYOR PARNHAM
MAY BE DELEGATE
TO CONVENTION
Included In the communications
read at the special council meeting
last evening was one from the City of
Seattle asking that a delegate be sent
from here to the 32nd Annual Convention of Pacilic Coast Fire Chiefs
which will be held in the Washington city from September 21st to 24th.
In connection with- the convention
there will be an exhibit of the latest
appartus In Are fighting as well ns
actual tests in which the appartus will
be used. Sight seeing tours will be
also a part of the entertainment being arranged for the benefit of thc
visitors.
The Council was of the opinion that
a delegate should be sent and therefore requested Mayor Parnham, who
Is also Cumberland's Fire Chief, to
make the trip If he cared to do so.
Regularity of meeting nights and
punctuality of the attending mayor
and aldermen have been commending
features of Cumberland's 1925 city
Council, at least they were until last
Monday evening, when only two aldermen made their appearance at the
City Hall. As a quorum must consist of four members there was naturally no meeting. The clerk of the
Municipality, .W. H. Cope, intimated
that a special meeting would be called
before the end of the week. The two
attending aldermen were T. H. Mumford and A. E. Jeffrey.
of the municipal committee of the provincial legislature.
Both sides of the question wero
fully discussed by the aldermen and
after lengthy deliberation It was decided to Inform the Inspector that the
present plan was more feasible for a
city the size of Cumberland. They
thought thc principle of city managership a very desirable one, but one that
would only work well in very large
cities.

A. Maxwell took the chair at the special council meeting held last evening.
Present were also Aldermen T. H.
Mumford, A. E. Jeffrey, P. Mullen, and
the city clerk.
The city manager plan came before
the meeting by way of a circular letter from Mr. Robert Baird, Inspector
of municipalities, who referred to tbe
fact that city officials were in a position to perform more economically
and efficiently many duties which
rightly belonged at present to members ot the council. They were, In
fact, carrying out these duties in
many instances. The question to be
decided was this: should the Cumberland council go on record as being ln
favor of provision being made in the
Municipal Act for the adoption by mu-
niclpalltles of the principle of cltyj
managership? The opinion of the!
council was requested for the benefit I

lose his home by Are. After rising
and lighting the kitchen Are, his usual procedure, before bringing the
cows In from the pasture, he was
very much alarmed on his return with
the animals to see his house a mass

the fact that she actually had to rush
through the Are in her night attire
with their little boy. Happily however, no one was hurt although the

CUMBERLAND, B.C,
EDWARD W. BICKLE
FRIDAY. SEPTEMBER 18, 1925
tfHE Would that we might have a law
SCANDAL against gossiping as we have against
MONGER stealing. As Shakespeare says
"He who steals my purse steals
trash; but he who robs me of my good name robs
me of that which enriches him not, but makes me
poor indeed." False witness destroys the whole
man, body, soul, and spirit. This spirit of gossip is the peculiar temptation and sin of otherwise respectable people. It is rampant among
the clientele of the average church. So much so,
that side of the royal men, who are outside the
church and whom the church needs so sorely, are
deterred from throwing their lot with the church
because of the conviction, based upon the residuum of fact, that church people are given to unfriendly criticism of their neighbors.
We must recognize our responsibility in this
connection. Our big sins may often be small
sins in the estimation of God, and our small sins
may be considered by Him big sins. Lust and
insobriety, condemned by us with Pharisaical vehemence, received the Master's mercy. They
are sins of the flesh. But gossip, slander, the
destruction of the reputation of other people, are
cold-blooded and cruel sins. They are spirited
sins and are unexcused by passion or overwhelming desire.
May God seal our lips in the church, in society, and elsewhere, that we may never say anything about anybody unless we can say something
kind; that we may never wound the sensitive
spirit, nor offend the tender heart.
It is an unfortunate fact that Cumberland
possesses its full quota of those threatening* menaces of modern civilization—the scandal monger
and gossiper. They spend their time spreading,
not the gospel of "good will toward men," but in
bearing false witness against their neighbors, uttering wherever they find a listening ear, some
evil gossip concerning another. We do not feel
we are unfair when we say that Cumberland and
the community will be better off when these peo
ple pass to their future punishment. If one cannot say something decent about a neighbor, it is
better to remain with sealed lips.. Nothing is
gained by promiscuous discussion of the alleged
faults of another and too often is the accuser
more guilty than the one accused.
THE    There is no item ever published in any
NEW    newspaper that brings such swellings ol
BABY   pride as the few lines, "Born to Mr. and
Mrs. Blank, a son.     Mother and baby
doing well."
Today, the Cumberland Islander will find its
way into some home where a young mother's eyes
are suffused with tears that issue from the depths
of a divine gladness, and where a father tiptoes
to a cradleside half choked with pride and joy.
Of all the events which the newspapers will
chronicle today, nothing' will compare in interest
to those fond parents with the brief birth notice
of their first-born.
The little pilgrim who has landed on this
shore and shoal of time, after his voyage from
the dim unknown, may have brought with him
some message for which humanity has been waiting 50,000 years. All the philosophers, scientists, teachers and statesmen came in the same
quiet way.
It will be a good thing for the young father,
when he creeps upstairs to take a last look before starting to his work, when he turns down
the soft coverlid and feels a strange lump in his
throat, to pause a moment and take account of
himself. Perhaps he has been a little wild and
reckless. It won't do now. There are little
feet hidden away in those warm blankets that in
a very few years will begin to toddle in his Daddy's footsteps. It behooves the young father to
walk in the straight and narrow path henceforth.
The mother may be too weak as yet to give
much thought to the matter, but before many
days she will realize that the little daughter that
cuddles to her bosom will soon be learning the
first lessons of life from observation of that mother. A new duty, a new vigilance now faces tho
mother and she must be careful in her daily life,
for little eyes see all she does and little ears hear
all she says.
So in your pride and your joy, oh, father and
mother, awake to the responsibilities that are
yours, and remember upon you, and you alone,
devolves that faithful fulfillment of the divine injunction, "Train up a child in the way he should
go; and when he is old, he will not depart from
it."

INSTALMENT 1
The blast of a bugle announced the l dwarfs with grouches don't make a
mad dash of the charioteers around
the arena which would bring the main
show under the big top to a close.
"Heyah, Heyah!" cried the barker,
who was endeavoring to attract the
attention of those early leavers wishing to avoid the Anal Jam. "Heyah!
Right this way. Look! Look!
Queer people trom queer lands, gathered from the four corners of the
earth to startle and amaze you. Heyah! Look, look! Furnlo, the human volcano. He eats Are and drinks
burning oil!"
On he went, extolling his attraction
and proclaiming the prowess ot those
mysterious individuals gathered within, accentuating his selling talk by
pounding a bamboo stick upon the
huge canvass banners stretching
across the front. On the inside the
objects of his lecture made ready to
thrill the "Natives." It was a hot
day. Beada of perspiration stood out
ou Tweedledee's frowning forehead
and, although he rubbed them away
repeatedly, they would form again
with military monotony and charge
down into his eyes. Near him sat
Madame Fatlma, slumped over in her
chair—a mountain of purple, painful
flesh, fanning away the legion of summer Ales and casting vindictive glances trom his small pig-like eyes at the
Human Skeleton on her right—a West
Indian, who basked In the Aerce heut
like some bronze snake in the tropical sunshine, repaying her attention
with a triumphant but sickly smile.
On Tweedledee's face, Arst was mirrored the smile of the West Indian
as he noted thc discomfort of the fat
woman, but as his glance followed
hers and beenme Axed on Ihe lizardlike Agure of the Human Skeleton
basking on his platform— when he per
reived the full animal pleasure depicted In every loose-lying Joint of
that bony frame the light of anger
in Mndame Fntlma's eyes was as nothing to the red-hot torrent of fury that
poured out of his. Jumping nut nf
his toy chair and stretching himself
to his full stature of two feet three
Inches, he shook his tiny Ast at the
Human Skeleton and cursed him
heartily in a voice like a snwak. At
this the West Indian's thln-llpped
smile broadened, and shivering affectedly he wrapped himself up to the
chin ln a heavy black robe which lay
beside blm. The dwarf's anger waxed into a consuming Aame; his little
round shoe-button eyes Aaabed and
his soft chubby face writhed Into a
terrible mask. It was as though the
expression of a baby had been suddenly transformed Into the expression
of a murderer. But his voice was
pitifully weak nnd ineffective.
"I wish you wcre dead, you human
clothes hanger!" he squeaked, shaking his Ast at the skeleton. "I wish
you were dead and thnt I had done
It."
A grinning attendant approached
Tweedledee's platform. "Cut It out,
Teddy." he said. "This ain't no way
to behave! The people will be corn-
In' In  here from the big show and
big hit
"I'd kill him!" muttered Tweedlo-
dee with Ills eyes still Axed on the
West Indian.     "I'd kill him."
"If you was big enough, sure. But
you ain't." And so saying, he lifted
the infuriated dwarf, placed him, none
too gently, In his toy chair and went
off to Join a companion at the entrance of the tent.
"Tweedy's got 'em again," he explained.
"It's lucky Hercules aint that way!''
said his friend. "We'd have some
lively times around here lt he was.
But I wouldn't be handlln' Tweedy
rough when the big one's around,
Bill. They're pretty thick .them two.
The big one thinks a lot of Tweedy."
"Who, old Hercules? Why, he
wouldn't hurt a Ay. God! Bul It's
hot. Look at Lady Fatlma. A piece
of butter now."
Martial music wafted in through
the door. A half-witted negro, "The
Wild Man from Borneo," part of the
front ballyhoo. Jabbered and danced.
But far wilder than he, far blacker
than he, were the thoughts that
danced and Jabbered on the fantastic
Aoor of Tweedledee's brain.
He sat in his toy chair, his chin
resting on one hand—a ridiculous
caricature of Rodin's "Thinker"-
staring at the ground with black, unseeing eyes, while before his mental
vision Aoated scenes of violence-
scenes of daring—scenes where he
was ever the central figure: a new
transformed self—this gigantic, tow-
ering self—would live on a pedestal
of fear. Men would fear blm; and
he would read this fear In their eyes.
He would frown, and they would
tremble; he would stretch out hl.i
blind, nnd they would Aco. Death
would he written on his forehead;
strength would pulse In his muscles;
nnd Cunning would creep with padded fool through his brnln. So it
would be. If he were that other self
of his dreams.
All that he asked—all that he had
ever asked was to be taken seriously: and yet no one had granted
him this simple wish. Most had
laughed, some had pitied, but none
had understood—none had looked upon bim aB a human being like themselves. And as he had grown older,
the inner workings of this doll had
changed; strange transformations
had taken place; the springs of good
had corroded with rust; and soon the
green mould of evil covered everything.
At Arst his heroics had been of :i
childlike character. He wished to
be considered good, noble, brave, lie
ached to become a hero. He acquired a stately carriage, only to ace
the people before hla platform convulsed with merriment. He soon
learned thnt this was an Impossible
role to play. Whatever he did was
humorous. When he gave to poverty, proverty laughed In his fac».
All professions, except that of clown,
were closed to him.
And so the   materialistic   children
had closed their eyes to the inner
workings of their doll, but the Inner
workings had changed so much—so
very much. Every one who has the
ability to love greatly also has the
ability to bate greatly. Every one
who has the ability for great goodness, also has the ability for great
evil. A murderer Is often a perverted hero. Tweedlee, perceiving that
his heroism was ridiculed by his
audience, turned to the other side of
his nature. He must be considered
seriously at any cost.
And this other self had answered
him—this other evil self had spoken
ln a new, strange tongue—this other
evil, self which had been sleeping,
was now awake. Very gradually it
had been growing In him for months;
very gradually it had been gaining
the ascendency In his mind, till now
It sat, enthroned, in the crimson robes
of sin—a monarch who called to life
the evil spirits of his soul.
Tweedledee, like nil great egoists,
must play a leading part on the stage
of life; and if thc audience were not
pleased with him in the role of hero,
If they laughed and hooted him oh* the
boards, there was another part to
play, as important, as serious, us awj-
Inspiring. If his pcrsonlAcatlon of
good had failed, his personification nf
evil should not fail. If. his audience
could not thrill to his heroism, It
should tremble at his villainy. That
cculd hold the centre of lhe stage,
thut too could clothe his naked ego.
The body of Tweedledee lind been
formed by nature for n small part
in the world's theatre, but the soul
of Tweedledee had been formed on a
larger scale. In It burned an Insatiable Are—a Aro that shone through
his beady cyeB ns he sat staring nt
the Aoor—a lire that would one day
Hash out into the world. Before It
nothing could stand. It would burn
and destroy. Strong men would
tremble before II. Thut day was
coming fast. Already he could hear
Its footsteps In thc distance. It
would touch him on the shoulder; II
would look Into his eyes, nnd then—
then .... Through the open door a
river of hlnrlng music poured In like
cataract. The halfwitted negro
seemed carried away In It, and whirled about on bis platform like a chip
torrent, Occasionally there
came n sudden lull In lhe music, followed immediately by a sound ns
though a thousand whips were snapping al once. Tlie big show wns
drawing to a close.
Tweedledee could see ihe whole
scene as (hough It were being enacted before ills eyes- lhe people
leaning forward excitedly; thc volley of deafening applause; the vol-
ands nf eager eyes fixed on thc dash-
ting chariots, on lhe stalwart drivers
berlbbnned nnd bedecked in the pomp,
of Rome, on the foam-flecked horses.
I: was a soul-lnsplrlng sight; nnd for
tho moment these charioteers were
heroes—heroes to the children, to the
mothers, to thc fathers, lo the yokels
of the town—heroes snatched from
another world.
Soon the throng would he Jostling
and shoving out Into the Mldwav.
They would come lo see him- laugh
at him—mock him. Tbey would And
humor In his weakness—hie small
body nnd squeaky voice.
"If I only had n commanding hodv
and a commanding voice" lie thought,
"if I only hnd a commanding body
and a commanding voice, wbv I would

Instant n much fell on his arm.
Tweedledee started and a strange
look came into his eyes—lhe look

catches at a straw. Two men stood
before blm—his two friends in the
world—the only two  who took hlin

Colorado's tourist harvest In 1924
amounted to about $49,000,000. The
secretary of the Colorado Springs
Chamber of Commerce says; "Our
out-of-state visitors spent nearly eight
times as much In Colorado In 1924 as
it cost to run the state and its institutions and seven times as much as
its gold output. Is it any wonder
that Colorado Is building automobile
roads on a huge scale and doing a lot

An old farmer attended the big picnic nt Courtenay and stayed over to

Somebody asked him why.

A colored preacher had Just concluded a sermon on "Salvation am
tree" and announced that a collection
would be taken up for the benefit of
the parson antl his family. A member In the audience objected to the
paradoxical nature of the proceedings
and received this bit of negro logic In
response:
"S'pose yo' was thirsty an' come to
a river. Yo' could kneel right down
an' drink your HU, couldn't yo'? An'
it wouldn't cost yo' nothln'. Dat
water would be free. But, s'posln'
yo' wns to hah dat water piped to yo'
house, yo'd hove lo pay, wouldn't yo'?
Waal brudder. so It Is wld salvation.
De salvation am free, but It's de liabln'
it piped to yo' dat yo' got to pay to'."

FINE PRODUCTION
OF "THE MOLLUSC"
GANGES,
| evening, September 12, Miss Tommy
Clancy and her company, for the first
place on their Vancouver Island and
Okanagan tour, visited the Mahonn
Hall, Ganges, with that clever little
three-act comedy of Hubert Henry
Davies "The Mollusc."
The play was proceeded by two
dances rendered by Madame Valda,
the first item cn-i the program
Schubert's "Ballet ot Rosamunde,"
Madame Valda delighted all by her
charm and grace, but it was ln her
second dance, taken from the Egyptian ballet, that her great powers and
technique showed her the perfect ex
ponent of her art.

Friendliness
One of the qualities which add greatly to life is
that of friendliness, and there is no more friendly
medium of communication than the human voice.
That is one reason why the long-distance telephone is
appropriate for business and social purposes.
which waa the well-known song from
the "Maid of the Mountains,' "A
Bachelor Qay."
In "The Mollusc," the amusing play
which followed, the title role was
taken by Miss Tommy Clancy, who
splendidly sustained the character of
the selfish, useless wife, Mrs. Baxter,
who depended for everything on her
husband, and other members of her
household, did nothing for herself,
and was only brought to her senses
when as a last resource to rouse her
from her lethargy, the seeds of
jealousy were Inslduously sewn. Miss
Clancy gave an excellent reading ot
this trying part and. won the unanl-.
mous praise and admiration of an
enthusiastic audience which she held
from start to finish of the play.
She was supported by a cast of
three. Iu the character of Mile. Robert, Madame Valda scored a success,
giving an attractive Impersonation
of the French governess. Mr. Wilfred
Hill as "Tom Kemp," made a jovial
and rollicking brother to lhe Mollus-
can, Mrs. Baxter, and was a good foil
to the sedate lover and henpecked
husband, Mr. George Durham.
The solos between the acts and accompaniments were most efficiently
played by Mrs. Palmer.
"The Mollusc" ls coming to the Gaiety Theatre, Courtenay, for one night
only, Thursday, September 24th.
CLIFFE BROKE HIS
RIGHT HAND IN
REDDICK FIGHT
(Continued From Page One)
lous right to the head. Reddick's
round.
Round six—Reddick landed the
right uppercut hard as they met and
Cliffe fell Into a clinch, bleading profusely from the mouth. He was very
tired. Reddick chased him around
the ring, hut did not follow up. Cliffe
missed with a left and Reddick swung
viciously to body and face trying foi
a knockout. Reddick tried to box
with the weakening youngster and
roughed It In the clinches. He was
much stronger und should have* put
Cliffe away In this round.     Reddidit:,
Round seven—Cliffe kept backing
away and Reddick would not lead.
They sparred. Reddick stepped In
and shot his uppercut. It was badly
directed and missed Cliffe by half a
block. He tried again and again
missed. It was the slow round of the
light, not one clean punch being landed by either.     Even round.
Round eight—Reddick was wild
with his right again and Cliffe landed three times without return with a
right. Reddick closed Cliffe's right
eye and a lump shot over the eyebroir
as big as a robin's egg. Reddick
seemed  slow and  Cliffe  inclined  to
stay the route.     Reddick a shade.
Round nine—Cliffe came out dancing and swung a hard right that sent
Reddick back on his heels. Reddick
missed two rights and Cliffe landed
hard twice to the jaw. The champion was groggy and the crowd wild.
Cliffe struck again and again and
Reddick fell Into a clinch. He roughed Cliffe In a neutral corner and the
crowd booed at a fancied low blow
by the champion. The blow actually
wasn't foul and carried no steam.
Reddlcks' face was a mass of blood
and he was distressed at the bell.
Cliffe's round.
Round ten—They sparred. Cliffe
was high wilh two light rights to the
jaw and Reddick swung hard to the
body. They clinched. As they broke
Cliffe slabhed three times with a light
left and Reddick missed twice. They
were clinched at the bell. Cliffe u

Iy touched the dwarf's ear, "how's
everything with you, Tweedledee?"
And "Echo" said nothing, standing
there with his large, luminous eyes
lixed on the ground; but his thin lips
trembled slightly, and the little wooden demon sitting on his rlioulder—
the little wooden demon, with legs
like a goat and the head of an old
man—spoke. '
"It's hot here," the voice squeaked.
"The fat woman is too fat; the skeleton Is too thin. Let us go out into
the world together, Master."
"And you, Hercules?" cried the
dwarf, looking up at that great face
hanging over him like a moon, at
those dull, sleepy eyes like pools of
muddy water, at that huge gaping
mouth filled with yellow tusks. "And
you, Hercules? Shall we be moving?
"It is hot," muttered the giant, rubbing a hand like a leg of mutton
across his wet forehead. "Also the
Hies bite me." he continued with a
ponderous, thoughtful shake of his
bead. "And yet I sleep so much.
Where else could I sleep so much aa
here?"
"In the graveyard," piped Ihe little demon on "Echo's shoulder.
"But." continued Hercules slowly
and laboriously, "the people come to
see me lift heavy weights, and bend
horseshoes In my hands. If they
came here some day and found me
gone, they'd be disappointed, they'd—"
"The people!" cried Tweedledee In,
a voice like a rusty hinge. "Tho
people come to laugh at you. You're
a machine to them. Tbey put their
money in the slot, and watch it work. |
You're not a man; your'e a machine
•a plodding machine."
"I don't know, Tweedledee," said
the giant. "You may be right—you
mostly are. But I heard a woman say
once—I heard this, mind you. with
ray own ears,—she said to her littlo
boy: 'Don't drink or smoke, and you'll
grow up as big as him some day.' It
pleased me, that did. It made me
feel as though I was an example of
what a man should be."
"An example of what a beast should
be!" broke in the dwarf. "A brokeu
spirited elephant—that's what you
are! You stand there, day after
day. In the sun with the people buzzing about you like files; you stand
there quite content If they throw peanuts at you now and then. But
'Echo' and I aro of other clay. We
are going out into the world as to a
dance. We will take Adventure by
the hand, and She will lead us. We
will fly along like the wind; and, looking back, we will see that, which we
have passed over, has changed somewhat. We are ready for the road, eh,
my 'Echo'?"

Dry   Cleaning 1j||   The Man They Could Not Hang
Did you ever stop to figure that when you send a
suit or dress to the cleaners, you pay for the cleaning,
not barely removing the spots or patches of dirt?
This practice might improve the appearance of
your suit, but does not get to the real injurious particles of dirt and grease imbedded in the material.
In our method your clothes are washed in pure,
clear gas until every spot of grease and dirt is removed, then they are turned over to experienced hands,
shaped and pressed on one of the latest steam garment
pressers.

The Importance
of Good
Appearance
Clothes never pass unobserved—consciously or
unconsciously people judge you by them.
It's mighty important—this matter of your personal appearance—and it's always a matter of satisfaction to know that your clothes are distinctive—that
they are made of good materials, in the correct style
and well made—and after all they're the cheapest
clothes in the end—they wear longer.
*
We'd like to show you all of the newest styles and
fabrics for this season—come in and see them—you're
more than welcome.

REDDICK POSITIVE
HE HAD KNOCKED
CLIFFE FOR A ROW
Hypercritical fans who figured ther.j
wasn't much to the Reddlck-CHffe
light last week, should have drifted
into the respective dressing rooms of
the big fellows afterward.
Reddick was in a decidedly foggy
state. Young Hector McDonald led
tlie groggy champion to his room and
ihe big fellow was leaning heafily.
"Who won?" he asked through
broken lips that were puflilng out like
voung balloons. "Did I knock him
out?"
"lt was a draw." replied McDonald,
steering Reddick through the doorway
with difficulty.
The champion slumped heavily into
a chair.
"Are you sure?" he muttered. "Don't
fool me; I knocked him out. didn't 1?"
McDonald again assured him It was
a draw.
Reddick still so foggy he knew
little of what transpired, couldn't get
off the subject.
"What was the decision?" he questioned.
"Two culled it a draw;  the other
saw Cliffe.*' he was told.
*   *   *
The champion waB plainly disappointed. Someone came In to remove
his bloody gloves and started out with
them.
•Hey," growled Reddick, "don't take
those away. They're gonna stay with
mc to remind me ot the hardest fight
of niv life. Gawd, how that boy can
hit!"
Still somewhat goofy on his pins.
Reddick staggered to the shower
Nearbv was another hazy ligure.
"Who's that?" Reddick asked.
"It's Cliffe," he was told.
Reddick walked over.
"Shake." he said, extending his
right hand. "You're a helluva lighter. I'll say."
Cliffe stuck out his left hand.
"Can't use the right; think I spoiled
it on your nose nnd jaw."
They shook.—Vancouver Sun.
