City Council Had Busy
Session Tuesday Last
Resurrection
Well Received
The Sunday School choir of the
Grace Methodist Church gave a
very creditable rendering of the
cantata "The Resurrection" on
Easter Monday evening.- The
church was almost filled to capacity. Great credit is due to each
of the scholars for the manner in
which they delivered their parts.
Special mention should be made
of the young ladies who took the
parts of Naomi, Tirzah, Abigail
and Achsach, also of .little David.
This little lad's work was most
excellently executed. The large
platform was tastefully arranged
and was equipped with special
lighting system. Mr. Hughes
had this part of the work under
his supervision, and to him is due
great credit, for his work most
assuredly went a very long way
in making the cantata the most
successful one ever held on Vancouver Island.
Previous to the cantata a short
micellaneous program was given.
The rendering of the Holy City
was especially well received. The
song was rendered by Mrs. E.
McAdam in a very pleasing manner, while the scenes mentioned
in the song were represented by
twelve young ladies dressed in
white. The young ladies were
prepared in this work by Mrs.
Burns who is so well known that
to remark upon her efficiency
would be superfluous.
While the tableaux were taking place Mr. C. Edwards, who
was the accompanist forthe evening, played very impressive selections on the organ.
Comox District School Fair
The date for the opening of the
Comox School Fair has been set
for Wednesday. May 10th. Mr.
John Kyle, head of the Technical
Education Department of the
province of B.C. will be present
to judge the art exhibits.
Baseball
All Baseball playersanticipating
playing with the Cumberland
seniors are requested to turn out
for practice on Monday, Wednesday and Friday of next week at
6 p.m. It is expected that the
Comox District League will be
started early in May which makes
it necessary for all players to get
into condition for the opening
games. The local Japanese are
reported to be fielding a strong
team this year and intend entering the Comox District League.
With a view to testing the ability
of the different players a game
has been arranged for Sunday,
commencing at 3 p.m. on !thc
Recreation Grounds between the
Cumberland Seniors and Cumber-
and Japanese.
Grim Battle In
Latest Picture
One of the most thrilling fights
that has been staged for a motion
picture in a long time occurred in
Paramount studio for scenes in
"Her Husband's Trademark" in
which Gloria Swanson stars for
Paramout at the Ilo Ilo on Friday
and Saturday.
The scene was in the interior
of a Mexican hacienda and the
place being raided by Mexican
bandits was defended by Richard
| Wayne who plays the leading
male role, while Miss Swanson
looked on in terror. The fight
occurred partially on the stairway
and Wayne tore away the balus'
trade newell post and beat off the
rifles of the attackers. Sam
Wood, in directing, worked the
scene up to a climatic pitch, until
in the realism of the moment it
almost partook of actuality and
before they were through, the
bandits and Wayne were almost
fighting in reality. Miss Swan-
son's screams weren't altogether
feigned—it was a very exciting
moment, to say the least.
Extra attractions including a
SnubPollard comedy andSnooky's
'Blue Monday" also Mutt and
Jeff. On Monday and Tuesday
Thomas Meighan is presented in,
"A Prince There Was." This is
Meighan's very newest picture
and is one of the best he ever
appeared in. A Fox Sunshine
comedy will be screened with this
feature. On Wednesday and
Thursday Mary Miles Minter will
be seen in ' 'Moonlight and Honey
suckle." This is an exceptionally
fine feature.
The City Council held their regular session in the Council Chambers on Tuesday evening last with
his worship Mayor MacDonald in
the chair, with aldermen Thomson
Beveridge, Bannerman, Maxwell
and Pickard present.
The account for prisoner's keep
was laid over, A delegation was
present from the Cumberland Lit
erary and Athletic Association
consisting of William Walker, E.
D. Pickard, T. W. Scott, Daniel
Stewart and Robert Walker. The
latter addressed the council stat-
the club wereanxious to take over
the 24th of May sports, providing
they could obtain the Council's
consent. In reply the Mayor
said that the calling of a public
meeting had been delayed on account of the sickness of himself
and the city clerk.
The aldermen speaking to the
request were favorably impressed
and suggested that the city assist
the club in making the 24th of i
May sports a success. Itwasfinal-
ly decided to hand over the 24th
of May sports to the Cumberland
Literary and Athletic Association.
Considerable discussion took
place with reference to the dividing of revenue tax and receipts
from the Liquor Control Board.
The council decided to lay tho
matter over until next meeting.
The city clerk read the financial
statement of receipts during the
lirst three months and the balance
on hand. ■
The boulevard on Dunsmuir
Avenue from 'Art] to 4th streets
was the cause of a very unpleasant discussion, taking up the time
of the council for the remainder
of the evening, and resulted in
work on this section of the boulevard being discontinued until the
next meeting of the city council.
Daily Train Service

Information has been received
to say that the daily train service

1'he Ansen Junior Musical Club
Concert in the Anglican Church
Hall, Thursday, April 27th.
Mr. Geo. Cavin arrived Wednesday on a visit to his son.
On March 25th, we published
the press dispatch in connection
with A. W. Neill's address in
reply to the Governor General's
speech, which gave the platform
as announced butomitted to mention the most important part of
his speech in connection with an
additional import duty on fuel oil.
Mi. Neill's address in the
House of Commons on Thursday,
and Friday March 16th and 17th
in part was as follows:
There are on Vancouver Island
some five thousand men engaged
in the coal mining industry, and
with their dependents we must
multiply this number by at least
five to ascertain the total number dependent on this industry.
Two of the mines are in the district represented by the hon.
member for Nanaimo (Mr. Dickie) and he.will no doubt deal with
those. The mines in which I am
interested are situated in Cumberland, where there are 3,000
to 4,000. All last w inter and most
of the summer they were working only three days a week, and
with the reduced pay now given
to coal miners, and in view of
the high cost of living, these men
need not worry about the price
of gilt-edged securities- for the
investment of any surplus funds.
Their situation indeed closely approximates want. If there if any
extra call upon their purse for
sickness or anything of that kind
it means that they must go into
debt. It is important to know why
they were only working three
days a week. The reason is very
obvious and cannot be denied; it
is because of the competition from
fuel oil. That oil is imported almost entirely from the United
States.
Some people think that fuel
oil and crude oil are synonymous
terms, but they are not. Crude
oil is the natural product as it
comes out of the well; fuel oil is
the crude oil after certain valuable elements, such as gasoline,

Fire Bell Needs Repairing
TheCurfewwill not ring tonight
or any other night, unless some
very necessary repairs are made
to the bell.
The Chief of Police, somewhat
unreasonably, objects to having
pieces of tho mechanism falling
on his head.
Anglican Church
Bazaar Wednesday
The Bazaar to be held on Wed-
nesday,April 26th in the Anglican

a success, judging by the amount
of useful and fancy articles which
the Ladies' Auxiliary of Holy
Trinity Church have obtained.
There will also be a home-cooking
stall, operated by two well-known
membersof the men's club. Some
of the ladies of Cumberland will
have to make a special visit to
this stall, and sec just what man
can do—when be tries. Useful
and fancy articles will also be for
sale and afternoon tea will bo
served from "3 to 6.
All friends who have promised
needlework, etc., are asked to
leave them at the Hall on Monday
afternoon, April 24th.

SATURDAY, APRIL 22nd, 1922
Dear Old Dad
Now that he has paid his income
tax once more and kept the coal
bin filled throughout another winter, let us say a few words for
dear old Dad. Of course Mother
always will come first in the home
but anybody that Mother loves is
entitled to some consideration and
Mother's sweetheart is dear old
Dad. For many years he has
home the burden of providing for
the home. He may be old or he
may be of middle age but he is
dear old Dad, just the same. His
pipe may leave an odor in the
sitting room and his cigar ashes
may litter the rugs and furniture,
but he is unfaltering in his efforts
for the family. It is dear old dad
who furnishes you with a good
name. He also furnishes sister
with good counsel, and gives brother good advice. When we are
short of money we tell our troub<
les to dear old Dad ana it is this
good old chum who share our sorrows and "shells ont." Mother
is the very centre of the home, of
course, and dear old dad agrees
to that statement. How thoughtless and how often thankless we
are with reference to Father
how often we forget that dear old
dad is something more than a bill-
paying machine. We only know
that we like to have him around,
but none of us can guess how
much he means to us, until some
day—some day. And then it is
the life insurance he so thought
fully provided that keeps the
children in school and Mother
from mopping up somebody's
office.
When a seventh son la horn in the
Argentine, the President ot the Republic becomes his godfather.
Keep Them Buried
No amount of money, no amount
of worry over the mistakes of the
past will help the future.
No regrets over yesterday will
profit to-day.
Wandering in the weed-grown
cemetery of the past, reading the
epitaphs of lights that failed, gets
a fellow in a state of mind where
he is liable to see the bleaching
skeletons of old blunders pointing
their bony lingers at him.
Digging up the past brings some
pretty rotten things to view.
Stay away from the tomb of regret.. Always avoid the morgue
of miserable thoughts. Don't
wear the winding sheet of "it
might have been."
Use your own blunders to jolt
you into better things and then
forget them.
Out of broken ranks of failures
you can, if you will, gather up
enough good scrap to build a new
foundation.
The most useless thing in life is
to worry about tho things that
cannot be mended.
Smile,
Smile!
Man that is born of woman is of
few days and manygrowls. When
the 'spring comes, gentle Annie,
and the rain waters the earth he
complaineth because of the mud
and a few weeks later his soul is
grieved because of the exceeding
muchness of the dust. When a
good honest effort is made to
beautify the surroundings for him
by building boulevards, he cries
aloud in his anger. In the winter
he crieth it is too cold. When the
sun shineth brightly it hurteth
his eyes; when it hideth behind a
cloud it giveth him the blues.
A new boulevard giveth him no
joy and he moaneth, 0 give us
back the road. Yes, verily there
is nothing which satisfieth him,
He cometh into this world crying
and he leaveth it grumbling. And
this, too, is vanity.
"Me too, Mother!
"I want a slice of Bread and
butter."
This little boy knows what is
good.
He knows what satisfies the
hungry feeling that real, live
boys and girls have all the time.
A loaf that is flour and compressed yeast and milk and shortening is bound to measure up
as a real satisfying food.
Bread is your Best Food—Eat
more of it.

The  Emancipation
Of Gladys
By Ivor Lord.
Gladys crouched down in bed, alone, in
the inky darkness, her heart throbbing
with fear. First she pulled the clothes up
over her head, then with a feeling that
she was beinj? stifled, and that she must
listen, she cautiously moved them down.
Yes! She must listen for the sound
which she knew would come presently
which she so dreaded.
All was silent now, with the horrible
intense silence of night, when one trembles
"Mth horror at the thought of a footstep,
a hated presence that will arrive soon and
cannot be evaded.
Fnrnithts she hid Iain thus, and listen-
ed praying, hoping' hat lie might not come.
T' - h would enter 'he room, and she
Would endnr" his hateful presence in ter
riiied, stony silence; feeling, after he had
at last Rone, spent utterly with all the
wild emotions that had unnerved her dur-
Ing ilx. time he stayed.
2-t now Her endurance had come to an
end.   She could bear it no longer. There
was only one way in which to free herself
of him for ever—murder!
To-night she was going to murder him!
In cold blood she was prepared to take
his life.
She had laid her plans carefully. Never
for one moment, must he suspect the trap
into which he would step so gaily and
unsuspiciously. All was prepared, ready
against his arrival.
Her heart quailed at the thought, and
she almost hoped he would not come tonight. And yet-to be rid of him for ever!
The unutterable relief!
"It is cowardly for me to be so frighten-
ed,"she told herself. "Why don't I switch
on the light when I hear him, and defy him!
It was her seventeenth birthday to-day,
and she had put her hair up for the first
time, and had a birthday cake with seventeen candles, and a party; and it seemed
dreadful to think that the happy day was
to end thus, in coldblooded murder.
She wondered how old he was.and if he
had a wife and family who would miss him.
At this thought she almost decided to
spare his life. She half sat up in bed
when a slight sound arrested her and she
wriggled down again, in a panic.
Hark! He was coming! He was here!
She heard his soft, steathly movement in
the darkness, and she trembled until the
bed shook.
Should she let him die? Or should she
call out and warn him away? Would
he	
Ah!  A  sharp report!—then silence!
Too late to warn him now!
For a moment she lay quite still; then,
with shaking fingers, she pressed the
electric button and flooded the room with
light.
Cautiously she crept to the foot of the
bed and peered over.
Yes! There he lay, the tyrant who had
filled so many of her nights with fear and
torment, on the hearthrug, QUITE DEAD!
Gladys sighed with relief as she gazed
at his stiffening body, and knew she was
rid of him for ever.
"These 'break back' mousetraps are
much better than the old-fashioned ones,"
she reflected happily, thinking what a
horribly long tail he had.
Hints For The
Busy Housewife
To pour liquid into a small
mouthed bottle moisten a wooden
toothpick and lay it across the top,
holding it there with the forefinger. As you pour, the liquid will
run along the bit ofwood into
the bottle. Fountain pens may
be filled in the same way.
To remove oil from a carpet, put
some Hour on thecarpetand brush
it off very carefully into a dustpan. Keep on supplying flour
until all the grease has been absorbed.
An easy way to drive out flies
is to put twenty drops of oil of
lavender in a saucer and dilute it
slightly with hot water. The
sweet heavy odor is not agreeable
to the flies and your house will
soon be rid of them.
A Harry Lauder story: The
Great Comedian came out at the
stage door one night and found a
small boy peering about in the
semi-darkness, and weeping bitterly. Enquiry discovered the
cause of his sorrow was that he'd
lost the sixpence he had been
carrying to pay for his miserable
bed.
"Never-r-rmind, ma weecallant,
said the Great Comedian, "dinna
greet sae sair, here's- feeling in
his waistcoat pocket—here's a
match tae help ye find it."

Furs And The
Care Due Them
iiiiiiiiiii
Furs are now so costly that they should
receive as great care as jewels, yet strange
to say, one constantly sees women fling
muffs and neckpieces around as carelessly
as though they had no regard for them
whatever. This is not only reckless extravagance but is very bad taste, for it is
invaribly people of refinement, who have
always been accustomed to good things,
that know how to use them.
If, when furs are removed, they are
•;iven a good shaking, folded and carefully
placed in a box on the closet shelf, they
will keep in good condition and their usefulness prolonged. A fur coat should
have a muslin slip cover to go over it.
The almost universal custom of sending
furs to cold storage has many advantages
besides that of protecting them from the
ravages of moths. They can thus be insured against lire or theft more effectually
than when remaining at home. In the
fall they return to us free from dust and
dirt, glossy and fresh looking. And, best
of all, by sending them away, they are a
load off our minds for a good six months.
But as the weather grows warmer, and
especially in our over-heated houses, a
fur coat that is not in pretty frequent use
is in danger from moths. Unlike other
garments, it cannot be brushed vigorously at intervals, and it is usually too heavy
to be well shaken.
One woman solved the problem by going all over hers with a vacuum cleaner,
which not only did away with the menace
of moths but also removed every particle
of dust and made the coat look like new
It is almost unbelievable how the dust i'
our filthy streets stick into furs, and as
they are undoubtedly germ carriers this
would seem to be a good sanitary measure.
It is said that furriers use the vacuum
cleaner on the garments before placing
them in cold storage, therefore careful
use of it at home would not be likely to
injure the short haired furs.
For long haired furs a steel comb is
preferable to a brush. It is wonderful
how a good combing freshens up fox or
skunk, restoring the silky lustre natural
to it.
If it is not desired to send small furs to
storage it is well to remember that if
they are dyed they should never be allowed to come in direct contact with strong
preparatious like moth balls or tar paper,
as it seems to draw the color from them.
They should first be given a good sunning
and airing, then well shaken and combed
examining thoroughly for moth eggs.
A stout pasteboard box should be
secured in which to pack them, and this
may be lined with newspapers. Many
people dislike the smell of camphor, which
seems to cling indefinitely, and when this
is the case red pepper will do just as well.
Sprinkle it liberally in the box and over
the furs, and if they are free of moth eggs
when you put them away you need have
no further fear for their safety. v

Federal Member Speaks on
Fuel Oil
Continued from page 1
benzine and distillate, have been
extracted. There are some fuel
oil made at loco refinery, but it is
a comparatively small amount
and is readily absorbed in the
neighborhood. The great bulk of
commercial fuel oil used in British Columbia is directly imported
as such from the States, and if
a sufficient duty were imposed to
make it more costly to use that oil
it would give a tremendous stimulus to the coal mines of British
Columbia and Vancouver Island
generally. We asK that a duty of
two cents a gallon be imposed on
fuel oil. It is not a very heavy
duty, surely, and would be amply
sufficient to meet the situation
It would mean six day's work a
week to these thousands of coal
miners, it would mean prosperity
for those depending on the mines
and for the industries associated
with them, and it would constit
ute a great measure of relief from
the unemployment under which
the province of British Columbia
is now suffering.
Mr. Carrol: Is this fuel oi
used in British Columbia for domestic or for manufacturing purposes?
Mr. Neill: It is used, as far
as I know, almost entirely for
heating apartment hpuses and
running locomotives. A great deal
is also consumed, I regret to say,
on our steamboats. Very little of
this oil is used for domestic purposes. The imposition of this
duty would not [hurt any other
industry, and it would not raise
the price of gasoline or distillate,
the volume of fuel oil manufactured in British Columbia being
comparitively trivial,
