members of the Cumberland team
were also present. Nanaimo won the
toss "and decided to bat first sending

bowling of Burns aud Goodall. A
fairly good first wicket stand wns
made, 47 runs being added before
Mowbray was bowled by Goodall after making 21 runs. Ills partner.

the Nanaimo team to reach double
figures making 38 before being taken
by Stewart off Goodnll's bowling. At

a ray of hope to the homesters rattling up 17 runs before being clean
bowled by Eccles. Tlie bowling of
the Vancouver man. Eccles was deadly. He took n wickets for 20 runs
and maintained a good pace and
length throughout. The home team
was most unfortunate, losing Burns
l.b.w. nnd Boothman and Goodall run
out. The latter was run out before
receiving a ball. The only batsman
on the hometeam to make anythlns
like a stand was Sam Boothman. Ha

end came when Vernon-Jones was
bowled by Eccles, the home team's
score being 07. being defeated on tlie
first Innings by 111 runs only.

Considerable alarm was felt in town
on Monday when dense clouds of smoke

filled most minds. But all feelings of
uneasiness were alleviated when it was

The question of increasing playing

keeper it was decided to raise the fees!
for men $2.00 per year, making the!
fees for shareholders $17.00 and fort
non-shareholders $22.00. With reference to the lady players it was pointed
out that they were getting very cheap

CRICKET IN ClDIBEItLA.ND
THE CUMBERLAND cricketers finished their
season on Sunday last with a very fine game
against Nanaimo. The season has been a
memorable one for the locals. Organized one
year a(.ro by a few enthusiasts to pass a little
time away during the long summer evenings,
resulted in a few more .joining the club and games
with away teams arranged. All games played
have been of a most sporty and interesting nature and it is safe to say that the men comprising
tlie Cumberland team have derived a great deal
of enjoyment from them. Perhaps more real
enjoyment was derived from the game against
Nanaimo on Sunday than any other game this
summer. What made that game so enjoyable,
you ask. The very fact that a business man
from Vancouver, Victor Eccles, would pay his
own expenses to come over to the Island and play
for Nanaimo against the locals, is proof that the
game of cricket is with Mr. Eccles a vital thing.
He is heart and soul in the game and the Cum-
berlanders are loud in their praises of Victor,
the fast bowler. On a wicket that suits him he
is a hard man to play as several of the players
last Sunday can testify. Mr. Eccles, we watched
your play with keen delight. We sincerely hope
that we may have the privilege of seeing you in
action next season. The game of cricket has come
to Cumberland to stay. It matters not if a single
game is not won—the game's the thing.
neighbors; so womanlike, she turned backward for a
parting squint—and in punishment wns metamorphosed
Into a lump of .sodium chloride.
Looking backward in business is just as dangerous. A
great many people go through life with ihe self-same old
Ideas they hod in the beginning of their career. They
have never progressed. The habit of thinking in the past
shuts out new opportunities and new advantages. To
progress we must keep our eyes turned forward. Success
I'omes from keeping up lo date; to being alive to modern
Innovations, to lining alerl to progressive ideas, "Dry
rot" is a term often used when describing the closing up
of some old established business. It is just another name
for "looking baekwarl." Refusal to keep up to date or
lo progress with the times; unwillingness to scrap ino-
chinery that h-js had Its day; fear to lake a chance on
some new innovation, or to venture iulo it new Held, had
been responsible for many failures. There is no such
tiling as .standing still today in business—we either progress or fail behind -and out. Petrification of mind

AUSTRALIA'S  MIGRATION   POLICY
HERtt In Australia we have noi anything like the number of people for Hie amount of work that is
awaiting to he done. The unemployment is not due
in migration, hut to artificial conditions that are operating. Even the industrial need, however. Is secondary
to the hroad national need. Australia needs more people
tiotii for its defense and development If wc had three
times our present population there would he greater
safety, greater development, and greater prosperity, *and
as a nation wc would lie richer and happier. Yet we have
spectacle of the federal politicians saying Ihat they are
not responsible for the tiny trickle of migration, and the
state politicians emphasizing that they are not responsible
With both, votes seem to he of more immediate concern
than national safety. — Brisbane Courier
LOOKRfG  BACKWARD
THOSE who are acquainted with the Biblical Mory of
Sodom and Gomorrah will recall that wheen Lot's
wife looked back she was promptly transformed
into a piece of rock salt. Lot didn't look hack when he
■was told not to. Not on a bet; he just went ahead and
looked for another wife. The lady-in-question could not
keep her thoughts off the old place, the old life, the old
MOTORS AND NATIONAL PARKS
THE CANADIANS have "heat us to it."' They have decided to keep automobiles out of Glacier National Park
so that the region may not lie defiled hy dust, noise and
gasoline fumes. Even hot-dog stands have been banned.
The park is to be a sanctuary for mortals seeking peace
and quiet. Had such a plan been projected by our own
park service it would have been condemned as undemocratic and  un-American.    But  the idea is sound	
Experience in the Yost-mile Bark has shown that where a
small region, like the floor of the valley, is almost urbanized. The Canadian experiment deserves the serious
consideration of Americans. -The Now  York Times.

Questions concerning health, addressed to the Canadian .Medical
Association, 1S4 College Street,

BE  FAIR!
If you have disease germs in your
system, keep them to yourself. You
do not get rid of them by passing a
few on to someone else. If you have
ii cold, keep it to yourself. Be fair;
protect others from disease in the
same way that you expect them to
protect you. It Is not easy, living as
most of us do, to keep out of reach
of tiie other person's germs. It i<
only fair that we should all do our
best  to  limit   their  spread.
To begin with, there are certain
simple habits of what we might call
ordinary decency that everyone can
practice, and which would do much
to prevent the spread of disea^
germs. The first is to use ihe hand-
kerchiel to sneeze or cough into. If
the sneeze or cough catches one un-

Increase for Ministers
WINNIPEG—The question of recruits for the ministry will be thc subject of careful study by a committee
vlth a view to reporting to the 103O
meeting, it was decided at Friday's
session of the United Church of Canada general council. Dr. James En-
dicott. last year's moderator, made a
plea for bettering the economic condition of the ministers, Years ago
ministers' salaries were $200 or $300 a
year, but at that time the people of
the country were, on the average, on
a lower economic level than the ministers.

awares, the head can be lowered ami
the sneeze or cough directed at the
ground, rather than into the faces nf
those  around.
The next step is never to use a common drlnklng-cup, common towel or
common wash-cloth. The reason is
that such articles become soiled with
body secretions, nnd It is in these
secretions that the disease germs
leave the body and may be transferred  to another person.
Ii should not be necessary to warn
against such obvious dangers as using
the saliva to moisten the handkerchief to clean the baby's face, or to
give the baby something of the fork
or spoon that has been in someone's
mouth.
There is one important practice I
for everyone, and that is the washing {
of hands before eating. Our hands
become soiled . We should train our I
selves io keep them away from our
faces. We should never touch food
wlthoui having thoroughly washed I
the hands, in tiiis practice lies much
of our means of protecting ourselves'
from   communlcnble  diseases.

"And the homeless people in tho
ruined villages!" Fritz continued,
choking.
"Come, niy dear," she urged hiiu
gently.
"People who don't know yet what it
wan all about!" he went on, over her
reiterated pleading, of "Come! Come!"
"it 1 could tell Uie dead!" he shouted, his voice peaking to a mad climax.
He  shrieked   with   laughter.
Bruce approached Mitzi and offered
"I'll go  with  you.''
She snook her head!—
lis  all   right.    Come,  Fritz.    He's
been like this before," she explained,
iow.    "It'll   wear  oil'  outdoors."
The shocking sound of laughter
lessened.
Arndt moved forward. He had been
a tense and absolutely silent spectator of the scene. Now he said to
.Mitzi:  -
"Let me.    1'IJ go"	
"It's all right." she repeated at the
door.
.Inst keep an eye on Kurt, Come,
Fritz" Her voice broke with tender-
iiess, wilh ihe passionate love she
felt I'm- this shuttered man, a love
deeper, more stable, wider and more
amazingly single hearted than that
which aho had known for the well,
sane man she bad married. "We've
got each other," she reminded him.
forgetting the presence of the others
".Nothing   else   mailers"
"Come, my dear one." said Mltzi so
poignantly thai Arndt drew his hand
across bis old eyes and Hruce turned
away to hide an overwhelming enio-
lion.
CHAPTER   XXI
Paull,   ivel   eyed,   closed   the  door
after flic husband and wife.   She said,
shaken:-
"Ah.  poor Fritz!"
.Behrend   alone   withstood   lhe   tide.
Genuinely   outraged,   still   tremulous
from what he had believed his danger,
he began stormlly:
"Well-   really!"
"Poor Mitzi." said I'auli,
Behrend touched his decoration caressingly:—
"My decoration. It cost mo some-
thing, l can tell you."
"ll cost him something!" Bruce reminded him sombrely.
Behrend seemed to notice, the Kng-
lishmn ; '.'or the first lime, personally
lie remarked loftily yet not unfriendly:
"Ah. Cordon." and continued with
liis grievance. "But to blame me!
However, of course, lie's not responsible.' he admitted, feeling belter now
thai ihe intruder had gone and the
air was cleared of peril and misery
and madness. I 1 give him money
promised  Behrend heavily.
Pauli looked her grn tit tide. Anything for Fritz! She said, "That's
kind   of   yon"
Arndt found a plate in the dining
room and returned In pile the cakes
upon it. I'auli beckoned Jan. and
Arndl said, with as cheerful an air as
lie could muster:
"Anil   now - every   one,   coffee."
Behrend   sat   down,   exclaiming.   "I
couldn't eai a mouthful!'1
Paull held ihe plate to !iim. "They're
very  nice," she tempted.
'"Well, just one. then, Behrend said
taking three. "1 am entireljy unnerved. Open ihe wine" As Bruce
picked Up tbe bottle and gave it to
.'an. Behrend continued solemnly: —
"What do you think they ask for a
dozen Karlowftzer? Two million
crowns! Two million! And our taxes
-outrageojis! Life grows very hard.
1   hlflme  the   Kaiser!"
"Who is quite comfortable in Holland" observed  the  p'-ofessor.
"Oermnny is our natural enemy!"
lectured Behrend. "Aud France, with
lie,- ambition to rule tho world! Our
natural allies are England and America—unless England fights America!"

Interrupted. Fritz had come quietly
to tiie dining room doorway. He
laughed now—a neighing, inhuman
sound,  sustained  and  maniacal,
Behrend whirled about, startled.
"Who's  that?"
Mltzi came to Fritz, stood close to
him, her hand on his arm, sneaking
tils name softly, steadyingly. Bruce
detaching himself from the back
ground, moved closer, spoke in the
doctor's soothing tone, "See here, old
man"—--
"I see!" answered Fritz grimly. He
broke away from their detaining
hands and advanced close to Behrend
staring fixedly al the decoration,
"What's wrong?" asked Behrend un-
ea.sily.
"Nothing wrong." Fritz assured

Coming to the Ilo-Ilo Theatre
So real is Charles Hay's characterization of the "dumbbell" pfizeflghter
in "The Count of Ton" which comes
to the Ilo-Ilo this Monday ami Tuesday that you have to ask your neighbor his name again to see if tills is
the same man that played in the "Tho
Fire nrignde." The pari is decidedly
different from anything he had done
before and can easily be called his
best. He is a professional boxer in
evtfry scene, whether boxing nr making love.
The picture is an * excellent production that will thrill every lover of
fighting and romance. It is among
the best pictures that have shown
here Ihls season and can almost be
gaunranteed to make you stand up
and holler "soek 'em" when the lighting scene comes along.
The screen story was adapted from
one of the sport stories hy (lerald
| Beaumont thnt ran in Red Book Magazine and is th ebest picture of tho
"roped   arena"   seen   to   date.
.lames Glefison. formerly Qf ttie
stage, gives another excellent portrayal in the role of Jimmie. the
lighter's hard-lmiled manager. Jo-
byiii, Ralston, who is remembered
for her four years as leading lady
with Harold Lloyd, is .seen in one
(if her must attractive roles.
