Sudden Death of
Mr. Hugh Heyes
Ended Life In Garage at Home
of Friend
Mr. Hugh Heyes, son of Mrs.
Marsden, who has been in indifferent health for considerable time,
died by hia own hi«nd on Thursday
morning at Camp 3 where he had
gone to visit a friend. An investigation into the circumstances surrounding the death of Mr, Heyes was
held, but the coroner Mr. John Conway decided that an inquest was not
necessary.
The late Mr. Heyes suffered jthe
loss of an eye some time ago and
only recently underwent an operation for an ear complaint. He had
left the hospital a short time ago
after being in that institution for
the past two months. It is presumed
that worry over his condition led tho
unfortunate to end it all. In addition to his sorrowing wife he leaves
n family of young children to mourn
*his loss.
The funeral will be held from the
T. E. Banks' Undertaking Parlors on
Sunday at 1 o'clock for interment
in the Cumberland Cemetery with
the Rev. E. 0. Robathan officiating.

streamers from the chandeliers overhead and a number of ladies from
senior Review No. 17 of the Women's

Local Travellers
Experience Storm
Travellers down the Island on
Christmas Eve had quite an experience when they ran into one of the
worst storms in the history of the
Island. The rain came down in torrents making every stream a veritable river which flooded over the
highway and some of the creeks were
so full that it was expected every
minute that bridges would be washed
away. Two Cumberlanders travelling down were about the last to get
through. As they approached on a
very dangerous section, Mr. Beaven,
the road engineer was noticed standing almost up to his knees in water
examining the road and bridge. Hc
warned the travellers to go very
slow urging them to use caution.
After some misgivings this danger
spot was passed only to run into another one a few yards further on
where one of Mr. Heaven's assistants told the travellers that that par

ticular spot was about the worst and
ly Vaughan, Miriam Turnbull, Ver-^if tlwt could be got over aI] wou]d
be well. Visions of Christmas Day
with their own folks urged the Cumberlanders to try it. After an anxious few minutes the worst was over
and our townsmen wended their way
quite happy. It was stated that this
was about the last car to be able to
get through as the late stage from
Nanaimo could not make it.    Work- j
Cumberland Couple
Quietly Wedded
A quiet wedding was solemnized at
the Cumberland Catholic church on
Sunday morning, December 15th, when
Miss Lena Bogo and Mr. Edward Boyd
exchanged vows. Rev. Father Beaton
officiating. The bride was prettily attired in a gown of orange georgette
with trimmings of velvet, the skirt
made with a flare. She wore a hat to
match. Miss Josie Perozzinl attended
the bride, wearing navy blue cape back
satin with hat to match. Mr. Wilfred
Colling was best man. The happy couple left later in the day for Vancouver
C. Buttress, of this city
The bride, who was given in mar-1
riage by her brother, Mr. William I
Moncrieff, looked very charming in
a gown of blue crepe back satin, the
bodice finished with a handsome
bertha collar of cream lace, the
pleated skirt being caught at the!
side with u lovely bow and brilliant
buckle. A hat of matching tones
with touches of gold wat-v worn.
Mrs. W. Moncrief ar matron of
honor wore a crepe-de-chene dres4,
the skirt showing the modern uneven hem line." With this she wore a
hat of the same tones.
Mr. Sydney Buttress, of Nanaimo
brother of the groom, acted as best
man.
The Church had been beautifully
decorated with seasonal flowers and
foliage and a large number of friends
of both the contracting parties were
present. Mrs. L. H. Finch at the
organ  rendered  appropriate  music.
Immediately following the ceremony, a reception was held at the
home of the bride's sister, Mrs. Kenmare, who was assisted in receiving
the guests by the groom's mother.
Mrs. Kenmare wore a dress of blue
crepe-de-chene with trimmings of
creme Ince and Mrs. Buttress a dross
of navy georgette over crepe-de-
chene, the bodice showing handsome
cut work.
The rooms at the residence of Mrs.
Kenmare were beautifully decorated,
the supper table being especially
lovely. A large three-tiered wedding cake occupied the centre of the
table and the main ilornl decorations
of the well appointed supper table
were chrysanthemums.
After a short honeymoon Mr. and
Mrs. Buttress will take up their residence on Dunsmuir avenue.
There were many speeches made
at the supper table, the Rev. E. O.
Robathan proposing the toast to the
bride and groom who made suitable
reply. Mr. Finch, of Cassidy, also
made a speech in a happy vein. Following supper a real jolly time wus
had, music and dancing being indulged in until an early hour Christmas morning. Instrumental selections hy Mrs. Finch, Mess™. Finch
and O. Dakers and Mings by Messrs.
Robathan, Thoburn, W. Moncrk'.r,

result of careful training.
of His Car
Seldom has it been our duty to
record so sudden a death. A dark
gloom spread over the whole community when it was whispered from
one to another that Joe Rees hud
died whilst driving his car.
Mr. Joe Rees, who was 37 years of
age was very well known and highly
respected and the sympathy of tho
whole community goes out to his
widow and young son and to his
father and mother.
In company with Mr. Robert
Struthers, Mr. Rees was driving towards Lake Cumberland early Christmas morning to visit at the home of
the former when he turned into the
side of the road, close to the Chinese
Laundry which was burnt to the
ground some months ago. Mr.
Struthers turned to his friend and
said, "You're in the wrong road,
Joe." Mr. Rees backed up a few
feet, then bent down, and turned off
the switch and slumped over the
wheel of the car. Mr. Struthers on
bending over to find out what was
wrong with his friend was horrific. I
to see Mr. Rees apparently dead.
Dr. MacNaughton was immediately
summoned, who pronounced life extinct, heart failure being the cause.
"Joe" Rees as he was known by
everyone was in the prime ol* life.
He was an ardent hunter nnd fisherman and had climbed the mauntaim
in the vicinity of the Lake Cumberland probably more than anyone
else. He had climbed the Glacier on
several occasions and had secured
numerous photographs of the views
to be obtained there and of which
he was very proud, never tiring of
showing them to anyone Interested.
For a number of years now Mr. Rees
has lived at Lake Cumberlam

OTTAWA AND UNEMPLOYMENT
TIIK HON. Peter Heenan refuses to entertain
the suggestion that a conference be called
on the unemployment question. The Minister of Labor says "that employment is at the
highest peak that it has reached at this time of
the year since statistics have been gathered. In
short, Mr. Heenan denies that there is a disease,
and, on that ground, refuses to consider taking
steps 1" look for a remedy.
.Mr. Heenan is at issue here with the Manitoba
Free Press which says that there is widespread
um mployment all over the prairies and accounts
I'm' il by the cessation of certain large railway
construction operations and the short harvest.
So impressed wilh the urgency of the situation
is ih'' Free Press that it discusses various method-, by which a solution can be found for an employment condition which, it declares, is more
serious than it has any right to be.
Tin Free Press takes the authorities to task for
failing I" tackle a problem "which makes its ap-
pearance in this country with the same disastrous
regularity as the seasons themselves." The Win-
nipeg paper continues:
"Autumn after autumn Canada (lies its unemployment danger signals. Winter after winter
passes wilh nothing but the overburdened charitable organizations trying to cope with their hun-
dreds of eases of distress an poverty which can
onlv result eventually in wrecking the morale of
tlie victims. Such forms of relief are the only
present instruments for dealing with the evil.
They are intlispensible under present circumstances. But it is obvious that they are makeshift
patching up a bad situation.   The necessity is to
strike as deeply as possible at the causes which
bring this distress into being."
The Free Press finds that seasonal unemploy-
' ment is the ma.jor factor, and it suggests that
certain kinds of construction work be carried on
in winter and not in summer.  To accomplish any-
! thing on the large scale required however, necessitates the co-operation of public bodies and the
managements of great public utility enterprises.
To bring this about a lead must be given and that
lead should come from Ottawa.
So long however as Mr. Heenan is convinced that,
as regards employment all is for the best in the
best of possible Canadas, no lead will be given and
each winter the problem will recur.
TEXTBOOKS IN SCHOOLS
I N A DISCUSSION regarding textbooks in use in the
public schools of this country at a conference of
educational authorities held in Toronto, Prenjier An
ITEMS OF INTEREST
Heavy Penalty on Irish Motoritt
Sentence of twelve months it
prisonment, with forfeiture of license and prohibition against ever
again driving a car in the Irish Free
State waa imposed at Dublin Circuit
Court recently, upon David Millar,
who was convicted of manslaughter
of a girl when the car he was driving with the girl as passenger,
crashed into an electric light standard. Millar was driving from a
dance in the small hours of a Sunday morning in August.
Priaon for Motor Driver
Sentence of six months imprisonment in the second division was imposed on David Henry Wrenall (41),
motor  driver,  at  Liverpool  Assizes
derson of Saskatchewan said: "The teachers are appall-) recently   for   the   manslaughter   of
ingly uniformed and misinformed about the country in | Harold Prescott (28), dairyman, of
Warrington Road, Rainhill. Prescott
which they live.' ' This is a very great indictment and
Premier Anderson should give detailed instances of what
he means. If he is correct, even in part, then the method of training teachers seems in need of revision.
What all the provinces are agreed upon is that a revision of textbooks is desirable. There is no such uniformity of opinion on the subject of having standard
textbooks for the whole of the Dominion, because the
belief exists that provincial authorities will not sur
render their jurisdiction over these. The fact that the
subject has arisen may act as a spur to our own educationists to produce such textbooks as will remove the
slur cast on our educational system, in that for some
purely routine subjects they go abroad to secure the
textbooks for us in the schools. Another aspect of the
discussion is the necessity for the educational author
ties in each province exercising better judgment in the
textbooks selected for the use of children in this country.
Reform in this particular is now taking place in British
Columbia. It should be persisted in until the matters
complained of so widely are fully amended.
was driving some cows from a field
into the road when a railway motor
lorry, driven by Wrenall at a fast
pace,   scattered   th*   cows   and  ran
over Prescott killing him instantly.
An unemployed man who knocked
a woman down while riding a borrowed motor-cycle was ordered to
pay £285 at London Sheriff's Court
last month.
At the Nottingham Assizes John
William Durham, a motor driver
and Herbert Frederick Williamson,
a dyer's laborer, charged with the
manslaughter of Kathleen Emily
Jones (16) were sentenced to four
months imprisonment. The girl was
returning from a party when she
was knocked down by a motor car,
driven by Williamson, an inexperienced driver. It was alleged that
the car drove away while the girl
lay dead, Durham having said to an
omnibus conductor: "We have only [
knocked her down. Don't say any-
thing about it." Graze marks on j
the car, it is stated, were found tn,
be painted over and sprinkled wilh
dust.

was the most pressing need along these
lines.
Following the various conferences it
was decided that some dredging could
be done at this time, and it will be proceeded with forthwith.

EXERCISE IN WINTER
During the winter months, there is,
in our country, more illness than there
is during the other seasons of the year.
There are several factors which contribute to this increase. One of the
chief of these, and one whose correction lies within the control of each individual, is the giving up of exercise
or play when the cold weather comes.
A certain amount of physical exercise is necessary to keep the body fit
whether it is taken in the form of
setting-up exercise or in play, or, again,
simply as part of the daily routine of
life, such as by walking to and from
work. Most people, during the warmer
months of the year, do secure a considerable amount of exercise, because
they take part in some form of outdoor life which necessitates the. use
of their big muscles. Unfortunately,
many people, once the cold weather
comes, lead an indoor life and seldom
bring the big muscles of their body
into play. In addition, they continue
to eat as much if not more than they
did when they were active; they also
starve themselves of fresh air, and live
and work, most of the time, in an overheated atmosphere which, in itself, is
debilitating.
The result of this abuse of the body
—for it may be fairly called abuse—is
that there is a loss of tone; a state of
comparative, unfitness develops, with
the result that there is more ill-health
and more actual disease than during
the months when the body is given
reasonable care. Cold weather itself
is not responsible for disease; in fact,
there is much to be said for the stimulating effect of cold fresh air. The illnesses that come with winter are the
penalty of our neglect of our own
bodies. Just as soon as we put into
practice what we know about exercise
and fresh air, and about living and
working in rooms that are not overheated, we shall be more healthy and
there will be less" sickness. It may be
impossible to continue the same exercise in winter as in summer, but there
are many ways In which th neecessary
amount of exercise can-be secured in
winter.
I to be followed by discomfort in the'
I part chilled by the draught, or a
cold in the head may follow. There
j is no question but that some are
! more sensitive to draughts than arc
| others.
Fear of draughts should not lead
to our living a life shut off from
fresh air. Living in over-heated
rooms, with the air absolutely still,
is to be avoided, for it has a definite
ill-effect on the body. It is quite!
practical to keep the air in a room
i in the gentle motion which comfort
; and good health demand, without
. draughts. The motion of air does
j not strike and chill one part of the
j body is essential of good air and
\ makes  a  most desirable atmosphere
■ in which to live and work.
! Draughts may be avoided by opening the window an inch instead of
a foot, or by using of window boards
j to  direct the incoming air upward
■ and so prevent a direct draught. In
j offices and  schools a good  practice
is to open the window wide at regu-
i lar intervals while everyone moves
about or takes some simple exercises,
i Those who are sensitive to
! draughts can frequently overcome
the condition by the use of cold
; baths or by douching the chest with
cold water. In this way they tone
up their bodies to adapt themselves
to changes in temperature. Clothing
according to the thermometer is also
necessary.

DRAUGHTS
A   bugbear  to   many   people  are
draughts.   A draught is a current of
air which, striking one part of the
body, cools or chills that part, while
the rest of the body remains warm.
We  can  stand  out  of  doors  in  a
good stiff breeze und feel stimulated
by the rush of air.    We can go in
= j bathing  and  have  the  whole  body
• j wet and yet experience nothing but
| j good out of the plunge.   If, however,
:   we have a perceptible breeze strike
; i only one part of the body, or if our
I | feet   become   chilled   after   having
I , been wet, such an experience is apt
