Storm of Protest from This District Follows Finding of j
Game Board
The game conservation board of
British Columbia at their session re- j
cently put a ban ou willow grouse all |
over the province to protect Ithia !
game bird from etxermiuation. The j
Cumberland Hod and Gun Club met
last week and discussed the situation
with the result that a letter has been
sent to the board protesting against
the closure being applied to willow
grouse in this district. We have been
told by old time hunters that the willow grouse are more plentiful in this
district than they have been [or a
number of years, and they are at a
loss to understand why the closure
has been applied to the Comox district. Whether the action of the local
gun club will have any effct remains
to be seen, but is certain thnt all
hunters, whether members of the club
or not, will watch the result with a
great deal of interest. The following
1b the season as fixed hy the hoard
and released for publication this week;
Victoria, July 30.—Open Seasons
for game birds all over British Columbia this year were announced at
the Parliament Buildings today. Thc
biggest change from the regulations ol
last year is the complete closing ol
willow grouse to shooting all over
the province in order to protect this
fine game bird from entire extinction.
The game conesrvatlon board is planning to keep this prohibition on willow grouse shooting for a period of
several years in an effort to restore
the species. It may be necessary also
to close blue grouse entirely to shinning next year, officials of the board
stated, and It Is hoped sportsmen will
agree In urging this step. Blue grouse
are In better condition than willow*
but have been much depleted of late
Por the game purposes the province
Is divided again this year into two
districts, the western district including all territory west of the summit of

Hundreds of people wended their

Collieries (Dunsmuir), Limited. The
weather was all that could be de-

The Cumberland School Trustees
met at their regular monthly meeting
on Thursday evening of this week,
all the members being present.
A letter asking the Bourd If they
wished to purchase a local map of
the Comox District for the school wus
read but this matter was left over
until the next meeting when the principal, Mr. Apps will be present. The
secretary also read a letter from Miss
McLeiutaghen, director of home economics, telling the board that a Miss
Daphne Cannon had accepted the position of home economics instructor on
the stafT of the Cumberland Schools.
Miss Beatrice Bickle's resignation
was presented to the hoard and accepted. Communications from Principal Apps and Mr. Murray were received, both of which dealt primarily
with the examination results of the
school. Mr. Murray in his letter
mentioned the failure ot Harry West-
field, showing how except for sickness Harry would have been recommended, and how before taking the
examinations he had. the misfortune
to injure himself most painfully. Mr.
Murray felt that the case was worthy
of being presented to i.:,e Department
of Education and suggested that the
board- request the re-reading of his
papers after making due explanations,
In this matter the board felt entirely
in sympathy with Mr. Murray's views
and it was decided that he put the
case before  the  Department.
The Medical Inspector's report was
received and all bills and accounts
inferred to,the finance committee
to be paid if correct.
Vacancies Filled
There were two vacancies ou the
teaching staff and applications for
these positions had been called for.

first place the arrangements mnde to
cater to' the vast assembly appeared
to be perfect—until a member of tho
refreshment committee thought lt u
good plan to call upon u few of his
friends to come to the side for quick
service. The result was that others
tried the same dodge from the opposite side which resulted hi what
the committe was trying hard to avoid
—a rush. The rush continued until
there was a regular jam in the centre
and it took all the efforts of the hard
worked committee to get things back
to normal. Another observation of
the scribe resulted iu finding out that
some people got more than their fair
share of refreshments, whilst others
went short. It was estimated that
'line person alone obtained in the]
neighborhood of eleven dollars worth
of refreshments. This was in direct
opposition to what the committee Intended. There was ample refreshments for all who attended as a perusal of the amount of goodies ordered
will convince the most skeptical. 150
cases of soft drinks, fifteen boxes of
all day suckers, 125 gallons of ice
cream, 1500 bags of peanuts and 2,000
oranges. In addition the committee
provided free tea for all who required
It and there is not a single person
visiting the grounds on Saturday but
what will say that the amount of eats
ordered was ample for the crowd attending. There Is only one conclusion to be drawn from this "hogging'
of the supplies on the picnic day, and
that is that the "hogger" pays a dollar
towards the picnic and intends to take
out of It ten or eleven dollars, or as
much as he or she can possibly get
their hands on. Tlie picnic Idea is a
mighty fine thing und it Is to he regretted that It has cpme to such a pass
that some patrons of the picnic go
down for the express purpose of getting all they can out of It. One committeeman was heard to remark that
If such conditions continue it would
be better to cut out the picnic all
Apart from the little incidents mentioned the affair wus a big success
and a most excellent sports program
entered into which produced some
keen competition.
During the day the Cumberland City-
Band played a number of selections
which were thoroughly enjoyed by
the large crowd In atteudunce.

ate man who was looking in the opposite direction. He sustained terrible
injuries and death was instantaneous,

have an infinitely better time, and stand in much
greater likelihood of making fortunes if they
would get out into such a man's game as mining
What health would be theirs, rugged and buoyant ; what opportunities, what success! The field
is undercrowded; the demand for workers insistent, the rewards rich. Oh, to be young again,
with a whole dominion to prospect and nothng to
lose but routine, an uncertain future, and a badly-
paid present!
FEW CANADIANS have any real conception
of the foremost position that Canada is taking today in the ranks of mineral producing
countries. Almost every precious and base metal is
found within her borders. Gold, silver, copper,
nickel, lead, tin are all indigenous to our country.
Otehr deposits such as asbestos are found in the
earth of Canada; nearly all the world's supply
of asbestos being produced in this Dominion,
Truly, from a mineral point of view, Canada occupies a foremost place.
These deposits of rich metals are not confined
to any one province either. While Ontario has
been a leader amongst mineral producers other
provinces are rapidly catching up with her. If
Ontario has her Porcupine, Kirkland Lake, Cobalt
and Sudbury. Quebec has her Rouyn, Malartic,
Chibougamau, and her famous Aban area. Nova
Scotia in addition to vast iron deposits, is now
known to have extensive gold areas and may possibly have some of the richest earth in the Dominion.
In the West, while British Columbia has long
been producing richly of various metals, Manitoba
has pushed herself into a leading position, her
Flin Flon and Sheritt-Gordon mines being outstanding amongst mines in Canada. While other
provinces may not yet have given so good a mineral account of themselves as those already mentioned here, there is no telling what riches they
may yet reveal. The great pre-Cambrian area
which covers Canada like a shield hides behind it
wealth untold, making this our country potentially the richest country in mineral wealth the world
The call rings out loud and clear to the Canadian people to "go out and possess the land".
The hidden riches of Canada are awaiting exploration and development. It is not enough for a comparatively few people to buy stock in mining companies. That is ii good thing to do; good for tho
mining industry and good for the investors if they
exercise care and discrimination in avoiding "wild
cats". But more than investing money is required. Money, while necessary, is not the most
important thing.
What Canada needs today for the development to be the only thing of all God's creation destroy-
of its mineral ndustry s more the consecration; ed. The idea is untenable. And even if it were
of its young manhood than anything else. The not so and death meant complete obliteration, fear

up rows of figures, or doing work of other kinds i in Him.   What is there to fear when God is near?
HAT A PART fear plays in our lives. Yet
what a useless part. If we look at life
aright, there is nothing to fear, except fear.
Fear makes cowards of us all. We fear what
people may think or say of us and, as a result
we live lives that don't ring true. We are false
to ourselves because we imagine that others,
looking at us, may misjudge us. So fear comes.
What does it really matter what people say or
think of us? What matters is that we are all right
with ourselves. We cannot possibly be right with
ourselves without being right with our neighbors
and with God. Why fear others' opinion if we
are right, and know we are right?
We fear poverty until we bring poverty upon
ourselves. Poverty or prosperity is a matter
of consciousness more than anything else. If we
have a poverty consciousness, we shall see poverty
everywhere, set limitations upon ourselves, hinder
prosperity coming to us and, so, bring about the
very thing, poverty, we fear. The same with
disease. We create disease by being afraid of it
it. Epidemics are started by unintentional propaganda more than anything else. We read of so
many cases of grippe and if, perchance we sneeze
somebody tells we have the malady and we begin
to feel sick. Let a dozen people meet a man some
morning and tell him he looks sick: He will go
home and take to his bed sick in his mind because some people told him he looked sick. It has
happened so many a time. He feared the sickness
and he got it.
Old Job hit it off well when he said, "The thing
that I fear has come upon me". It came upon him
because he feared it. If he had not feared it then
it would have avoided him. Things that are bad
for us don't come upon us unless we invite them
by our fear to come. Why fear anything? Suppose it is death we fear. Death should have no
terrors for us. It only means a passing on to a
new experience. There is no waste in Nature,
science tells us. Nothing is destroyed. Think
you that Man, of whom the Psalmist says. "Thou
has made him a little lower than the angels" is

In B.C. The present forest is the result of natural
reforestation when the human hazard was not present

Natural re-stocking of cut over lands is now going

.Notice to the Public of Cumberland.
In a circular letter sent to tho
Health Officers of the Province Nine
cases of Infantile Paralysis were reported in the Province, one in Vancouver, three in Fernie, and rive in
N'anaimo. with one death. Sence the
letter was received more cases were
reported   from  .N'anaimo.
In view of the fact that a large
number of families have recently arrived here from Nanaimo, and that
many persons have been visiting Nanaimo. It lias been thought wise to publish a few of the facts relating to the
seriousness of this disease, and the
ways it may be spread.
Helliiltiirii* An acute infectious disease accompanied in many, perhaps in
most cases by Paralysis. The Paralysis is incidental and when it occurs.
Is a weakening or a total loss of power
In certain muscles with no gross dla-
turbance of sensation.
"The Name Infantile Paralysis" 13
no longer applicable. Tlie incidence
of this disease and the increased mortality ln adolescents and adults must
be  realized.
Method* of transmission of tho disease. The work of Or. Wlckham In
the Swedish epidemic of 1005 is Important tn this connection. "Owing to
the geographical nature of Sweden,
with its small villages with a few lines
of Communication, he was able to
demonstrate that the disease only
travelled along lines of human communication, that It would not cross
a ravine 100 yards wide; he showed
that whenever Infection spread to a
fresh village someone from the Infected area hud visited the village ami
thnt this person was not 111. neither
did lie later develop the disease, he
was a carrier".
Delhi It Ion of u furrier. A Carrier
Is a person adult or child who harbours the Virus In his nasal, buccal,
or pharyngeal muccous membrane,
and can transmttt it to others, without himself showing the signs or
symptoms of tlie disease at the time
or at,a later date (healthy carrier) or
one who has had the disease, has apparently made a complete recovery,
but still harbours (lie virus (chronic
carrier) "Ilr. Fexner of the Rockefeller Institute. New York, has demonstrated the presence of the virus
in the mouth of a healthy person
whose child was 111 with the disease".
Let me quote one instance of how
a carrier has spread the disease. This
was reported by Dr. Collier. "One
day a farmer from a country village
soid a horse to another farmer who
lived 20 miles away, and as part of
the contract had to deliver tlie horse
at the farm of the purchaser. He
started from home leaving his child
111 with Infantile Paralysis. He took
the midday meal with the purchaser,
and sat between two of the children
at the table. Within 48 hours both
of the children were ill with Infantile
Paralysis and a few days later their
mother and another child were stricken by one short visit of a "Carrier"
with no possible source of infection
from elsewhere. Probably, too, this
father had infected his own child, for
adults are often Carriers".
Personal Precautions to He Adopted*
1. "As it has been shown experiment
ally that the virus Is present in
the nasal muccous membrane, an
antiseptic solution should be applied by mentis of a spray, to the
throats and nasal passages, not
only of the patfents, but of all
persons brought in direct contact
with them. A 1 per cent, solution
of peroxide of hydrogen, or permanganate or potash — 1:5000.
These an also he used as throat
wash and gargle.
2. "All discharges of the patient an
well as articles which may be soiled by such discharges, should be
immediately  disinfected.
3. "The sick should he isolated from

The idea for "Thanks for tho

Laura La Plante at her prettiest

isolation and nursing cannot be
obtained at home, the patient
should lie treated in an isolation
hospital. The sick-room and Its
contents should be disinfected at
the end of thc Illness.
4. "Those   closely  attending  on   the
sick should avoid any contact with
others, especially with children,
which might lead to Infection in
the ways previously mentioned.
5. "Contacts should be excluded from
school for a period of three weeks.
While it Is difficult at present to
know how long the infection of
Infantile Paralysis persists, Isolation of the patient for six weeks
is a desirable measure.
6. "In view of the danger of Infection
from abortive cases and carriers
anyone suffering from Indefinite
feverish attacks should remain
away from work or school and
consult a doctor at once.
7. "In view of the fact that healthy
adults can convey the disease to

Alberni-Cumberland Road
For several years Upper Island
authorities and boards of trade have
urged upon the government the desirability of a start being made with
the Unking-up of the road from Cumberland to Comox Lake with the road
running northerly from Alberni to
Beaver Creek. The objective is to
secure a circular route for -traffic, as
well as to open up a fine stand of
timber fn the river valleys north of
the Alberni Canal. Nature designed
this route of natural water grade connection, by the valley of the Ash
River and when the Canadian Northern Railway surveys were carried out,
it was the accepted route by which
Ihe Barkley sound line was to reach
the East Coast through the Beaufort
In 1922 and 1923, there was much
talk of urging this road extension on
'.he government, but a decision was
eventually reached to await the improvement of the trunk highway up
Mie East Coast to Campbell River before pressing a new road programme
upon the public exchequer. The
island Highway 1b now in a far different condition, and the Associated
Boards of Trade of Vancouver Island,
vhose conference began Tuesday at
Qualicum Beach, was asked to renew
Itfl expressed opinion on the subject
as a matter of urgency to the Northern communities.
In view of the fact that the government has Initiated a heavy road
programme out of contributions of
the motoring public, there Is a Htrong
case made out for action as the route
would be one of the cheapest to construct on the Island, it would relieve
ihe heavy tratTc from Parksville to
Courtenay on tho Island Highway,
and afford access to a valuable forest
products Industry. Arguments are
confined to the utility of tho road,
but from the point of view of tourist
traffic Its value elnstfmable as, Trom
the streams which flow Into Comox
Lake, access could be readily obtained
to the Southern part of Strachcona
