With whkk ls coaielMated the Cumberland Hem.
FORTY-SECOND   YEAR.—No.   37.
CUMBERLAND, BRITISH COLUMBIA, SATURDAY,  SEPT.   15th,  1923
SUBSCRIPTION PRICE:  TWO DOLLARS PER ANNUM.
Comox Fall Fair, Courtenay, Sept. 19th
TO INAUGURATE FUND
FOR JAPANESE RELIEF
City Council Will Take Matter Up At Meeting Monday.—Splendid
Response By Local Japanese.
GENERAL McRAE
His worship Mayor Parnham has
received a communication from the
British Columbia Division of the
Canadian Red Cross Society to make
an appeal for the Japanese Relief
Fund.
We understand that the Japanese
of the Royston Saw Mill and Cumberland Road have already promised
One thousand dollars. In the number one and number five section rf
Cumberland, the Japanese subscrlp-
ed Ten Dollars a man, amounting :o
Eight Hundred Dollars, and making
a total of $1,800.00. This amount will
be added to the proposed list of the
employees of the Canadian Collieries
and City Council.
It Is suggested that the Employees
of the Comox Mines take up the
question of relief at their mass meeting on Sunday evening, and the City
Council wlll also take the matter up
on Monday evening and appoint
solicitors for the fund.
The letter received by His Worship
the Mayor Is as follows:
C. J. Parnham, Esq., Mayor,
City of Cumberland,- B .C.
Dear Sir:—
We are advised this morning by
our National Executive that the
Dominion Government has asked the
Canadian Red Cross Society to make
a nation wide appeal for the Japa.
nese Relief Fund.
Our National Executive has. ask'd
us to appeal Ilrst to organized Municipalities.
1, therefore, ask your co-operation
and aid in raising funds for relief.
While details are lacking, enough is
known to state that the cataclysm iu
Japan is without precedent, aud necessitates united action of national
Red Cross Societies In every country. This is the latent official Information this morning.
Funds should he sent to this Provincial Division for transmission to
National Headquarters at Toronto.
Administration of relief in Japan
will probably be best accomplished
by the Red Cross Society of Japan
in consultation with representatives
of Canadian Red Cross. The Japanese Red Cross Society Is highly organized, with over two million paid
• members and with a special division
for relief service cdmprislng 6,000
trained personnel with experience in
disaster relief.
For your information, I may say
we have sent our Provincial Director
of Nursing with a staff nurse to Yokohama by the "Empress of Russia,"
whicli left two days ago, and they
wlll be the first nurses to arrive from
this continent. We also sent a large
consignment of milk both canned
and dried.
It Is perhaps unnecessary to suggest methods of publicity to you. but
our Executive" suggests asking Ihe
co-operation of all newspapers, also
circular letters and posters In "Post
Offices, etc., etc. If you will wire U3
wo will be glad to forward a supply
of Posters.
We, of course, expect there will he
the closest co-operation between local Red Cross people, lhe Clergy
Boards of Trade, and any other organization within your community.
The value of your kind co-opera
Hon In making this most urgent appeal a success, will be considerably
enhanced by your Immediate organ
Izatlon of a local campaign.
Let us know, please, what we can
do to nssist and at the same time
tell us of your plans that we may re-
port to National Headquarters accordingly.. Yours very truly,
A. J. FORSYTH,
Hon.  Secretary-Treasurer.

VACATIONS
Yesterday we were talking to a
business man who had Just returned
from a vacation, spent at a popular
resort.
"My first vacation in six years,"
ho remarked, In the course ot the
conversation.
"1 should think you would have
needed it," we ejaculated.
"Oh, pshaw, I didn't need It," he
laughed, "only 1 wanted to see the
sights."
Now, we know this man. We know
the long, solid hours he puts in every day, often Including work on Sunday. And yet wee know he was right
when he said that, after six years of
continuous labor, he didn't need a
vacation—just took It because he
wanted  to see the bright  lights.
He's a man whose health ls as
sturdy today as it was ten years ago,
whose eye is as clear, whose hand is
as steady, whose brain is as active.
Ho's a man who has worked hard,
played hard and slept hard, and who
will die hard. He has drown a chalk
line around his habits, where in his
opinion, temperance ends, and he has
never passed the mark, not even to
be a "good fellow," with himself or
others. To speak in the vernacular,
he is "fit."
Nature never adjusted her machinery so poorly that work would kill
a man or even require him to take
a vacation. Only man gets to monkeying with the machinery and then
blames work for all the ills he's been
heir to, where, in reality, he never
left the parts the way be found them.
One night at a dance, one at the
theatre, one at the card party, one
at the concert, one at the lodge,
with a lunch "after the work," and
a vain endeavor to rest up on Sunday—no wonder a man needs a vacation. But don't talk like thnt to the
man, because he'll get sore at you.
He knows It's work, grinding work.
It's work that makes him get up at
7 o'clock the morning after a little
bridge party—not the party, with
its heavy cigars and late meal, that
makes him disinclined to go to work;
It's work that makes him irritable—
not that delightful dance that kept
him up until 2 o'clock the night be.
fore: it's work that overcrowds his
brain—not a desire to make up for
a few hours' sleep lost between 11
p.m. and 2 a.m .
A vacation should be as unnecessary to a scheme of healthful existence as a bottle of codllver oil or a
bunch of capsules—and it is. But
that doesn't mean that a vacation Is
a bad thing, to be packed away with
other black sheep. Work is conflin-
Ing.   It ties us down.   It is narrow
ing. A vacation ejves us a chance
to look about and to feed our brains
In "green fields nnd pastures new."
It gives a chance for one to see the
sights.
A vacation should he a luxury,
never a necessity; and when it is a
necessity you can look beyond the
item of work for something to charge
it to.
There are thousands of the hardest workers in the land today, who,
though they haven't taken a vacation
in years, could meet the average
man right now and put his shoulders to the mat in the first three minutes. And the secret of their power
is not a secret after all, but just a
truth. Temperance In all thinfjs
breeds health.

COMMUNICATION
The Editor,
Islander.
Dear Sir: —
Some few years ago it was drawn
to tiie attention of the City Council
that by creating a boulevard along
the centre of the street of the two
entrance blocks to the City, planting
It in grass, and installing fancy trees
procurable from Beacon Hill Park,
Victoria, that It would tend to take
away the general barrenness nnd desolate appearance which the town
of Cumberland presented to any
stranger entering the City.
A hall was erected for the Great
War Veterans, a concrete Memorial
Arch with a concrete and chain rail
was erected In front of the building.
Similarly, In order to get rid of the
desert-like appearance of the main
street from the City Hall to the
Company's, Office, considerable money was spent between the City of
Cumberland, private property owners
and the Company, to create a pleasing appearance to the street and
make it look ns though the people of
this town were as ambitious along
the linos of civic improvement as
any other city on the continent.
The improvement work In this latter case has been looked after, and
after considerable pains and trouble
to impress upon lhe youthful mind
tliat there was to be no violence or
wilful destruction allowed, the Improvements have stood up well. The
same thing applies to the Athletic
Club, both Inside and out. the result
being tliat everything looks as it was
ftgured to, nnd not shambles as it
would have been had no trouble been
taken to compel law and order.
The other end of town, after all
the money spent, is getting to such
a point oi' dilapidation that it only
requires a short while longer for the
Juvenile element, whose chief occupations seem to be effacement and
destruction   generally,   lo    complete

Why is it that one girl has .1 fresh
smooth complexion and another a :>kin
which is lifeless] dull and sallow? Is it
a gift of nature or some guarded beauty

It is a secret, but an open one in
which every woman may share. It
consists in knowledge of the care
which keeps the skin free from clogging, poisonous accumulations. In the
removal every day of all dirt, oil secretions, excess cold cream, powder and
rouge.
To do this, use mild soap, massage
it thoroughly into your skin and remove with many rinsings. The mildest
soap you can choose for this purpose
is Palmolive. It contains Palm and
Olive oils. These rare oils are the mildest cleansers nature' ever produced.
They are the oils used hy Cleopatra

If the Canadian nre-war exports
of flour are considered as 100, the
Dominion's average export total
between 1021 and 1923 can be considered as 207. Comparatively,
pre-war exports of the United
States being rated at 100, its present export is at the rate of 147.
This indicates that Canada has
more than doubled her export trade
in flour while the United States
has increased its trade by 47 per
cent. Before the war Canada exported 3,832,000 barrels, while at

Great improvements have been
made in the matter of caring for tubercular patients at Tranquille Sanatorium, according to the annual report of that institution, just released
by Hon, J. D. MacLean, provincial
secretary. Increased accommodation
has been provided and the sanatorium can now care for 243 patients.
The minister points out that there
has been a marked increase in the
number of advanced cases and a corresponding decrease in the number
of incipient cases. This is in opposition to the aims of the government,
lie states, and advises that an earlier
diagnosis of the disease be made, so
that tuberculosis may be checked In
the earlier stages. The sanatorium
is operating on a highly standardized
basis, entirely under the control of
the provincial government.   ,

Tho Liquor Control Board has
never made any attempt to "saturate"
British Columbia with liquor. On
the contrary, every effort has been
made to control the sale of whisky
and other drinks, state Attorney-
General Manson and commissioner.!
of tlle board. In twelve instances
the board has refused to open liquor
stores and wherever the voters show
|they are opposed to the opening of a
store their wishes are respected.
This statement was issued following
accusations tliat the government wns
doing its best to sell more and more
of the strong stuff.
"The board Is simply carrying out
the will of the electorate In making
liquor available." stated Hon. Mr.
.Manson.
Despite criticism directed against
the government for the completion of
j the paving of the Pacific Highway
when /hat project was undertaken,
the general public and prominent
businessmen from all over the province are now united that the undertaking was in the best Interests of
British Columbia and is bound tl
show a handsome prollt. Already
thousands of American motorists
have come into British Columbia over the new highway, leaving
hundreds of thousands of American
dollars on this side of the line. Automobile club officials predict that
the completion of the work will bhiug
huge tourist profits to even the remotest sections of the province,
.   ' . ■  .
No matter what the opinions of the
government and the people may be
on the general Oriental question, it
is concecded that the government has
but one thing to do at present In
dealing with the Japanese people.
That is to rush all possible relief to
the stricken nation. Feeling this to
he the wlnli of the electorate, the
government has announced that a
cargo of lumber, probably 5.000,000
feet, will be shipped as a gift as soon

this aid was tiie first to come from

"THE FLIRT STORY
OF REAL LIFE
Lure of Dainty Modern Girl Is

Like a moth irresistibly drawn to

drawn to Cora Madison; just a wee
side glance from those coy eyes and

couldn't blame Cora; it was as natural tor her to flirt as It was to eat,
but, like all her kind, there came a
time when she had to pay the penalty for her indiscretions.
Booth Tarkington's story, "The

read books in the country, and Its
entertainment value is greatly enhanced by Its presentation in screen
form . It was made into a magnificent film by the Universal Pictures
Corporation, and will be seen at the

There ure few persons who have
not had a heart-breaking experience
with a Dirt, because the species

Universal casting directors    spent
many weary weeks in conning lists
of players tn order that each char-,
acter might  be  fittingly    portrayed, j
The role of Cora Madison is portrayed
by  that popular  star,  Eileen   Percy, \
with Helen Jerome Eddy as the plain
er sister, who Is the direct antithesis
of    "the    flirt."     George      Nichols, j
whose excellent work in pictures has

Edward   Hearne,   Dorothea   Wolberi,

The production was directed by

Thomas Meighan's latest' Paramount'
picture,    "The    Ne'er-Do-Well,"     is I
shown at the  llo-Ilo Theatre    next
Monday  and    Tuesday,  the  number

the aeroplane views of the Panama
Canal featured in the picture gives
a view of both oceans.
During the filming ot exterior
scenes for Rex Beach's novel In Panama, Director Alfred E. Green sent
William Miller, cameraman, into the
air to get certain scenes 'of the locks
for use in the picture. While at a
high altitude, Mr. Miller was able to
get a shot which gave a glimpse of
both the Atlantic and Pacific.
ln making other air views for the
picture, seven DeHavlland planes
and two Martin bombers, all furnished by the U. S. Army iu tbe Canal
Zone and piloted by Army filers,
were used. The Army officers who
helped the Paramount company in
making these scenes for "The Ne'er-
Do-Well" were Major F. Walsh, Captain Smith, Captain Minter, Captain
R. Quinn, Lieut. Leland Miller, Lieut.
Moon, Lieut. Webster and Lieut.
Fred Clark. Alt of these officers are
stationed at France Fleld, Canal
Zone.
In "The Ne'er-Do-Well" Mr. Meighan is seen as the shiftless son of
a man of wealth who is disowned by
his father after a certain escape
In New York which results in the
young man being shanghaied on
board a steamship bound for Panama,
where he is left penniless and
thrown upon his own meagre resources. Here he meets Chlquita, a
beautiful Spanish girl, played by I.ila
■Lee, and their love romance is not
only prolific of highly dramatic developments, but ends in the regeneration of the young American ne'er-do-
well. The supporting company Ib
excellent.

Dunsmuir Avenue, Cumberland
The Oregon Trail—romance, colorful—the avenue of escape of the civil
Izatlon that pressed against the west,
em boundaries of the United States
In 1840—the most romantic trail that
pioneers of this country ever trod.
The alluring stories that history
tells of adventure, fighting and hardship in the exploration of the great
Northwest along the Oregon Trail
form the basis of the plot of "The
Oregon Trail," a Universal chapter
play.
"The Oregon Trail" comes to the
Ilo-llo theatre next Wednesday and
Thursday. Art Acord, hero of many
western pictures and such historical
scries as "Buffalo Bill" and "Winners
ot the West," is the star of this vivid
historical document. Louise Lorraine is opposite him In the leading
feminine role, while Duke Lee of
"Buffalo Bill" fame and Jim Corey
and Ruth Roycc hnve principal roles
In support.
Robert Dillon, serial scenario editor at Universal City, wrote the film
plot of "The Oregon Trail" from history's pages, while Edward Laem-
mle directed. In the same respective
capacities, they were behind "Buffalo Bill" and "Winners of the West."
There ls one spot In the United
States that looks more like the .early
Oregon Trail than any other, and at
the same time it is more , beautiful
perhaps, and a favorite resort of hardy tourists who visit the West nnd
who are willing to climb and endure
hardships to see sights. .
It is Big Bear Valley iu California,
a home of great majestic mountains.
"The Oregon Trail" was filmed there
while winter mantled the peaks iu
snow. Airplanes were the only conveyances which could reach the location without trouble.
CULLING THE FLOCK
(Experimental   Farm   Notes!
By the use of the trapnest the
flock may be accurately culled so
that only those birds which have
given a profitable production need bo
retained; but for the vast majority
of farmers and poultry keepers this
method is not practicable in that
trapnestlng takes more time than
they are able to devote to It. Therefore it becomes necessary for those
who do not use trapnests to use the
less certain, but still practicable, method of culling by visual evidence.
The heavy-laying hens will lie
sprightly and active, in appearance,
will have a clean-cut head, lean face
and prominent eyes, a large moist
vent and a full abdomen which will
be soft and pliable. After she has1
laid heavily for a time, If she Is of
the yellow-skinned variety, the color
will have faded from her vent, eye-
ring, beak and shanks, and her
plumage will hjok the worse for
wear, the feathers of the tail in all
probability being badly broken from
rubbing against the sides of the
nest box.
It is safe to cull all birds that
show heavy Internal deposits of fat.
Thts laBt condition Is evidenced by
a full bard abdomen. Besides theso
indications there are others—the opposite of what is expected in a good
layer—that, taken collectively, arc
fairly  sure.
A dry puckered vent, or a dry
shrivelled comb, indicate that thc
hen Is not laying at the time; rich
yellow legs and beak usually indicate either that the hen hns laid very
few eggs or that she has taken a sufficient long rest to allow the color
time to return; smooth lustrous
plumage Indicates that there has
probably been no great drain on the
system and unbroken plumage indicates that she has probably not spent
much time In the nest.
While it takes experience to cu'.l
accurately where close culling Is desired, the wise poultry keeper will not
hesitate to make a start, as the rank
wasters may be readily recognized
even by the inexperienced. W.th Increased experience close culling may
be practised.

"'Tie the heart's voice alone can

The invention of the telephone resulted, not from
an effort to find a means of communication, but from
the deep pity in the heart of the inventor for thoac
without the ability to hear the human voice.
The range of the unaided voice is only a few feet;
but the same voice speaking into the telephone may be
heard a mile or three thousand miles away. The inflections, the accents, the individuality are all transmitted faithfully.
The telephone stands ready day or night to transmit your voice to relative, friends, or anyone with
whom you have need or speech. The telephone is tho

cal.    Mr. Ik-Gill's reception to "The
Canadian" is as follows:
HAIL!   CANADIAN!
(By Rev. H, R. McGill, Chaplain Ram
loops   Assembly   No.   10.)
Believing in Canada with all my
heart, proud of her historic past and
of the lofty place she has won for
herself in the great Empire aud
among the nations by the quiet fortitude and unselflisli sacrifice of her
sons, conscious of her rapidly growing commercial and economic importance, appreciating the vast variety of her population—each unit if
properly encouraged and assimilated
capable ot making a distinct contribution to her national weal—with
the consequent necessity of assembling and fusing all these diverse elements Into one strong and cohesive
Canadian ideal, and realizing the
tremendous power of the press In
this uniting process ,1 welcome this
initial number of "The Canadian."
Its constituency, "The Native Sons
of Canada," has been long overdue
This organization Is not at variance
with the several national fraternities usembling regularly in our land,
rather it appreciates their necessity
ln keeping alive the loftiest and
purest ideals af each contributing
country; but It alms at becoming the
larger mould into which all these
splendid national contributions shall
be poured, and whence shall issue
that rugged amalgam necessary to
preserve the unity and integrity of
this vast commonwealth within the
Empire.
The problem facing Canada ln
these construction and reconstruction days, the realization of our pos-
s'hillttes as a Canadian people, ond
the growing need of the Motherland
for our active aid In directing aright
the new currents and world ideals
lays, upon us the necessity of achieving a strong and loyal Canadian consciousness enriched by every national
element. This, I take It, is thc immediate and pressing task of all true
lovers of our land and of the Empire;
and to this ideal the Native Sons of
Canada are called. To the furtherance of this end. by fully disseminating these lofty- and necesnry ideals.
"The Canadian" is devoted, and as it
makes its initial bow every true Canadian will wish it God-speed.
From that historic morning fifty-
seven years ago, when that grand
old man of Eastern Canada, Sir Leonard   Tllley,   standing  amidst   those
representatives assembled to draft
the constitution of the united provinces, laid the moral and religious
foundations of our national life with
his Biblical title for the new commonwealth, "The Dominion ot Canada," let us continue to move forward, Implanting in the hearts ot our
youth, irrespective of" national ancestry, a fervent love of thiB newest
land of promise, so that, no matter
where he may wander, the proudest
boast of every native son will be—
"That he was born in Canada,
Beneath the British Flag."

waiting for special material, etc.
We gladly invite Inspection b ythe highest Electrical
Authorities of any installation we have made since the Provincial Regulations were Inaugurated and our most convincing
argument as to why we should do your wiring is the fact that

perfect. Aud then we have the knowledge of Electricity acquired through many years ot experience an dthis should
surely count for something with you when you are selecting an
Electrical Contractor.
A man may know how to drive a nail precisely, but he ls
a dangerous man unless he knows the effect of the driving
upon the material Into which the nail enters aud so It Is In the
Electrical Contracting business, it is not only necessary to
understand the practical Installation of wires, switches, fittings, etc., but it is doubly necessary to be able to make the
calculations that will ensure maximum safety, economy of
operation, and the proper functioning of the Electrical Energy

A visit to Dove Creek would come
as a surprise to anyone who had not
been in that locality for a year or
two.
Tliis District, which Ib not nearly
so remote as is generally believed
being only 4 miles from Courtenay,
can now show many fine farms, well
equipped with good houses . and
barns,- whereas four years ago the
only sign of civilization was an occasional   logging  shack.
The settlers here, most of them
returned men, have worked wonders,
in many cases a clearing had to be
made In the bush for the erection of
a house and now almost every holding has several acres of cleared land.
It must be remembered that these
people went at the task of land clearing and home making with anything
but adequate equipment, and to see
what has been accomplished ln Dove
Creek is a tribute to the hardy pioneers spirit which prompted it.
The thing that Is most needed Is
a good road, the present one Is In a
deplorable condition. In winters it
is impassable to wheeled traffic, al
though a man on horseback might
negotiate it presuming that both he
and his animal were fair swimmers.
However, any locality which shows
such a progressive spirit as Dove
Creek, is bound in time to be served
with good roads, the Rural Mail Delivery and other conveniences which
the older settler district enjoy.

The semi-finals and finals iu the
Courtenay Tennis Club's tournament were played last Sunday on the
wooden courts, Puntledge, and pro- ]
duced some exceptionally keen and j
interesting sport. The hardest
struggle of the day was undoubted-
ly the game played by Corfield, cf
Courtenay and Martin ot Head-!
quarters. From start to finish the
contestants played for all that was in
them, both being on the court with
dogged determination to win. It was
anybody's game until the last drive;
gave the contest to Corfield, the
score being 11-9. The ladies' dou-
blea was also a very even contest,
winners not having much to spare
at the close of play. The mixed
doubles went into four sets the winners deserving their victory. The
full day's play resulted as  follows:
Ladles' Singles:

as good a game as they did a week
ago when they gave the local boys
a hiding. Their numerous errors
were responsible for the great number of runs chalked up against
them, their left fielder being particularly proficient in the art of letting
the sphere get away from him, and
he struck out the first three batters
who faced him. The Courtenay boys
hit the opposing pitcher rather freely and though he was yanked in the
fifth frame, the responsibility tor the
loss of the contests cannot be laid
at his door. The score was thirteen
to nil. Dad Dixon provided the comedy on the coaching line and came
pretty close to getting his majesty's Angora. About the fifth inning
Pat began to grin after having told
Dick to go to nearly every place he
could think of . There was a somewhat bigger audience than at tbe
last fracas but it is evident that the
bull season is about dead.

A RECORD CROP
Mr. Horace Smith, the well known
Black Creek farmer, was in Courtenay on Tuesday. He has wonderful
success with his hay crop this year.
He had an acre and a half planted
to timothy and his firBt crop produced Ave tons to the acre; his second crop cut two tons to the acre
and he says that his third crop is
now nearly one foot high and heavier than his second cutting. Mr. Smith
believes tbat this is the first time in
the history ot the valley that three
crops have been produced in one
season. He attributes his success to
the fact that as there has not been
any great rainfall this season his
ground has been able to absorb an
unusual amount of warmth. Whatever the reason for the big crop of
hay it speaks well for thc productivity of Mr. Smith's farm.
Mr.   T.   Heyland   has   returned   to
Courtenay from Powell River.
On Wednesday morning fire of n
mysterious origin, broke out on the
unoccupied premises of the Daniels
property on the Headquarters road.
The outbreak was first seen at six
o'clock In the morning and before it
could be quelled the flames had destroyed a woodshed on the property.
A number of neighboring residents
led by Messrs. George Hornby and
Fred Burns saved the house and
other outhouses.
Mr. Reginald Pldcock, of Quathias-
ki Cove, was in Courtenay on a business visit on Thursday.
Mr. D. R. Pottlnger ot Victoria,
was In Courtenay on Tuesday. He
was thirty-five years ago a clerk In
Mr. J. McPhoe's store. Dr. E. L. Pottlnger, of this city is a son.

hunters to remember that all moving objects In thc woods arc not

CORSETS--
Gossard
Type Corsetry
\HE whole idea of Gossard
Type Corsetry is to bring
you to graceful proportions, one curve growing out of
another with no part unduly
emphazised. When this is done
you will have an appearance of
slimness that the woman with
a four-inch smaller waist and
your own hip measurements
can never have. A faithful following of this simple rule will
alone take pounds and pounds
away from a woman's apparent
silhouette and years away from
her apparent age.
Gossards are moderately priced—some models
as low as $2.50. Whatever price you pay for
your Gossard It will Ut
you faultlessly, ' wlll
launder beautifully,
will outwear two or
even three ordinary
corsets and wlll give
you a comfort such as
you never knew before.
