Sweeping across Canada on a wave of widespread
popularity which has tarried it to the top rank
among pastimes enjoyed l>y Canadians, the game of
badminton has, during the last few years, experienced a measure of growth amazing to say the least.
Cloar across the Dominion from Halifax to Victoria
new clubs are being organized each season and the
fine clubhouses which are heing erected are evidences of the immense popularity which the game
has attained.—Jack Purcell, Canadiiln Singles
This district along with others in British Columbia has been very favorable to Badminton
since it was organized it few years ago. There
are more clubs and more players than ever, enjoying the game this season, but for some reason
or other there loes not appear to be the great
enthusiasm as displayed two years ago, and it is
very evidi ut something is required to give it the
necessary "pep." Tiie writer suggested two years
ago that a badminton league be formed in this
district,, but received very little encouragement.
The idea of a badminton league, run along somewhat similar lines to a football league, would, wc
honestly believe, be the very means of creating
and maintaining interest in the game that has
taken hold of the public far greater than golf did.
It is not too late in the season yet to get such ai
league started. We still have four months left "U™B "'e *'""
for play and a league could be got working inside 'iay,ha5,™™ m
two weeks. We pass thc suggestion along to ex.jLantern Talks to
ecutives of badminton clubs in the district and
sincerely hope we will be like the big centres--
have our badminton league with weekly games.

Questions concerning Health, addresser! to the Canadian Medical
Association, 184, College St., Toronto, will be answered personally

The word "immunity" has enme into
common use ,and it is desirable that
its meaning should be clearly understood. When a person suffers from a
communicable disease, his tndy de-
; velops certain substances which are
! called antibodies, and these are the
fighting forces of the body against that
| particular disease. The disease germs
■ and the poisons which they produce
,are the destroying forces; tlie antibodies are the defending agents.
After recovery from most of the communicable diseases, the individual continues to have present in his body these
defending agents. It is for this reason
that second attacks of such diseases
are not common. As long as defensive
forces, strong enough to prevent the
germs of a disease from gaining a foothold, are present, we say that the individual is immune to that particular
disease.    Immunity,  therefore,  means
protection. When a person is immunized against a disease, he is given immunity through some of tlie known
Immunity varies in different races,
The colored race seems to be naturally
i more or less immune to certain com-
< municable diseases as compared with
■ tho white race. Immunity, as we see
j it, among our own people, is usually
! acquired through an attack of the dis-
| ease. If it were not that these at-
; tacks of disease kill large numbers and
damage many who recover from the
attack, there would not be anything
about which to worry. Tlie deaths and
the damage, however, constitute a menace which is indeed serious.
The ideal would be to have everyone
become immune without Incurring the
dangers of the actual disease. This Is
really the hope of Preventive Medicine
as regards the communicable diseases,
which, because they are spread Irom
j individual to individual, cannot be sat-
I isfactorily controlled in any other way.
] We can secure immunity against smallpox through vaccination and immunity
against diphtheria through immunization. Therein lies the practical way to
control these two diseases.
Prospectors Venture Into Unexplored
Fastnesses Of The Interior
Of Vancouver Island
(Victoria Colonist)
An interesting account of tie won-
: ders of the unexplored part: of the
big interior of Vancouver Iiland is
! told upon the arrival back in civiliza-
j tion of two prospectors, Me: srs. Joe
(Obingr, of Big Bend, California, and
' Jack Brendel, of Alberni, who have
Just undertaken an extensive prospect
covering the entire summer ;.nd fall,
'of the area situated between tlie head-
I waters of Bear River, Bedwell Sound
and the Moyeha River, Herbert Arm,
this area lying both in and out of the
southern boundary of Strathcona Park,
where it crosses over the centre of the
Island to the West Coast.
1 Mr. Obingr, who is completing an
eighteen months' prospect on (he West
Coast of the Island, is returning to his
home in California this week and Mr.
Brendel to Alberni, and their interesting description of the trip just com-
I pleted was graphically described to
1 Major George Nicholson, proprietor of
{the Clayoquot Hotel, while waiting for
the Princess Norah to bring them south,
While the greater part of their time
was taken.up in prospecting the Bear
River Valley and doing development
work on several rich claims they own
in that area, an expedition wa;; undertaken to the more Inaccessible teritory
at the higher levels, and it was there
I the interesting discoveries were made.
[Both these prospectors have been exploring these rivers for twenty years
or more, but this is their first trip to
'the higher levels and it is believed
I locally that this is the flrst time this
particular section has ever been visited by any man, white or Indian. Certainly there is not to be found any
sign of man, po camp sites, survey
marks, blazes or other trace of man
having gone before,
J At High Altitude
j   The main part of  the exploration
was conducted at an altitude of C.000
feet, barometer reading, where, when
this height was reached nfter almost
precipitous climbing, the land generally maintained this more or less even
altitude with the exception of the many
high mountain peaks continuing up
another two or three thousand feet and
which were mostly covered with snow
all summer.
A series of benches exists in mosl
places, some several hundred feet above
the other, and several of these benches
In some cases several miles in extent,
were found to be of hard granite fo;|
mation, granite of a high grade and
bare, making a most imposing sight
when glistening in the sunlight, and.
with tlie sun at a certain angle, being
almost blinding to the eyes.
The only mineral observed in this
I area was iron; thero being large areas
of almost pure iron, covering in some
instances hundreds of feet across. It
is not thought that there are many
other minerals in this High area, and
in any case they would be too inaccessible to work. Tiie principle mountain peaks in this area are Mount Septimus, the big interior mountain, and
Mount Granite, all situated within
Strathcona Park.
View Huge Glacier
In the valley between the high peaks
at the headwaters of the Bear River,
within the southwestern boundaries of
Strathcona Park, was observed the
magnificent Taylor Glacier, and though
it was during the hottest period of thc
summer when the party camped alongside it, little did it appear to be affected in any way by the rays of sun
at that altitude. This glacier appears
to be about five miles long and varies
in width from Ave hundred to a thousand feet. By the depth of the valley
through which it traverses it must be |
I several hundred feet thick, with a
sheer thickness of two hundred feet
where it breaks off in chunks and Irregular formations at the brink of a
steep rocky ledge.
Wilh its deep crevasses and irregular serrations, and its green color, it
, presents a wierd and fascinating spec»
\ tacle. On account of tlie broken nat-
I ure of Its surface and its deep fissures
| it is not possible to walk across the
glacier, except possibly at certain parts
aud then at considerable risk.
[ A few miles across this great watershed tlie headwaters of the Moyeha
River were reached, comprising a series
of half a dozen picturesque lakes, all
at an altitude of about five thousand
feet. These lakes average in length
from half a mile to a mile, and unlike I
tlie usual type of lake on the Island,
surorunded by high and heavily wooded hills, these lakes are open and sur-1
rounded by bare rock and granite for- \
matton, the water being pure and crys- {
tiil-like. There is no vegetable or an- j
imal growth in the water at this altitude.

The barren rock formation around
these beautiful lakes is only broken
here and there by clumps of white and
blue heather, which grows in abundance over these wide open spaces
and. with the dwarf huckleberry, is
practically the only vegetation to be
found. Small patches of mountain
hemlock and yellow cedar are to be
found here and there in the more sheltered bottoms,
The lowest of the three lakes emptying into the Moyeha, still at an elevation of four thousand feet, has at
its outlet the beautiful Lower Moyeha
waterfall, claimed by the half-dozen
white men who have seen it to be by
far tlie mo.se picturesque waterfall in
British Columbia. With a body of
water of a million or so gallons per
second, the falls have a sheer drop of
four hundred feet, the sheet of water
being about twenty feet wide at the
spillway. A mile or so further up the
same river is another waterfall known
as the Upper Moyeha Falls. This is
from tlie outlet of one of the upper of
tiie series of small lakes and while almost as picturesque is only a little
smaller than its lower sister.
The Moyeha River ilows into the
head of Herbert Arm at the point
where Strathcona Park touches salt
water on the West Coast. The falls
are situated about twelve miles or so
inland. A similar series of small lakes
exists at the headwaters of most of the
different rivers forming from this
watershed, and it is pointed out that
^ood waterpower could be provided
from them for the development of any
claims in the area.
Of the more important streams
3harlng this extensive watershed are
ihe Bedwell, Bear and Moyeha Rivers,
flowing to the West Coast, and the
streams flowing into the upper end ol
Buttle Lake, on the east.
During the few warm summer
months the meadows there abound in
game, for there is an abundance of
mountain berries.
Situated in the lower levels of the
Bear River district are Ptarmigan,
Seattle Mine and numerous other rich
claims, principally gold, silver and copper . These are all easily accessible to
tidewater on Clayoquot Sound. Quite
.i number of mining engineers and
prospectors were checking up on these
various properties during the past
summer months.

Building   Activity   At   Popular
Summer Resort Continues
During the past two years Qualicum
Beach has witnessed a decided building boom and judging from present indications there is no reason why
building activities at the popular seaside resort should be any less during
the next year. Word has just been received that a fine summer home overlooking the Qualicum golf course and
commanding a fine view of the gulf, of
log construction win immediately be
built for a prominent Vancouver business man. Plans for the building were
prepared by Wm. Frederick Gardiner,
of Vancouver, and the contract for its
erection has been placed with S. N.
Fraser of Qualicum. ft will be located
on a site of three and a half acres and
will cost $20,000.00.
Plans show a building witli log walls
and thirty-four inch shake shingle roof.
It   wiil  measure 06  x  54  feet  on  Hit
ground.   Thc spacious living-room will
measure 40 x 22 feet, interior treatment being of logs, with exposed roof
and log beams and rafters.   A special
feature of the living-room will be the
large   natural   stone   fireplace,   above
which will be located a balcony running
across the end of the room and reached by a stairway interestingly carried
on the breast of thc fireplace.   A large
dining-room, kitchen, maids' quarters
and  four bedrooms  with baths com-
Iplete the interior arrangement of the
