The regular meeting of the Cumber-, delegates trom the Courtenay-Comox
land Board of Trade was held ln the Board of Trade arrived and we.e
Council Chambers on Tuesday last
when a large number of the business
men and other citizens interested In
this work were on hand. An invitation had also been extended to the
members ot the Courtenay-Comox
Board of Trade to attend and a goodly
number of the members arrived after
the routine business had been completed. Judging by the attendance at
Tuesday's meeting the reorganized
Board of Trade will be functioning as
never before in the present year, and,
working in conjunction with the Courtenay-Comox Board, some of the problems that have been confronting the
district for years, should be solved.
Convention at Qualicum
At 8 p.m. the meeting was called to
order with the president, R. C. Lang,
tn the chair. After the reading and
adopting of the minutes of the previous meeting a communication was
read by secretary, J. C. Brown, from
M. C. Ironside, secretary of the Associated Boards of Trade of Vancouver Island, inviting a delegation of the
Cumberland Board to attend the convention at Qualicum on July 17th and
18th. As accommodation for visiting
members would have to be arranged,
Mr. Ironside requested that they notify him of the number expected to attend and of any resolutions which the
local board intended to bring before
the convention, aa it was necessary
to have the latter thirty days before
the date set. A banquet will be held
on the evening of the 17th and commencing at 9 a.m. on the 18th, the
resolutions of the various boards will
be received and discussed. The secretary was instructed to write Mr.
Ironside stating that five members
iwould attend.
The secretary then read a copy of
the letter he had written to Rev. M.
Bruce, <preBdient of the Associated
Boards of Trade of Vancouver Island,
asking him to address a meeting of

visitors, was then asked to addres;
the meeting. Mr. Anderton said he

to make any speech. He than';-
ed the Cumberland Board for their invitation to the members of the Courtenay-Comox Board and assured tho
local members that anything he could
do to further the interests of the reorganized Cumberland Board of Trade
he was theirs to command. Mr. Anderton dwelt at some length on the advantages to be gained by concerted
and consistent action, and strongly
urged upon the local board to cater
more and more t0 the tourist traffic.
He said Cumberland was more fortunate than Courtenay in respect to the
close proximity of the mountain
ranges and the fact that Puntledga
Lake was practically at our door. He
Btressed the absolute necessity of judicious advertising In an effort lo

Rood to Jock's Point
The proposed road which Is to be
built from the top of the hill at Puntledge Lake, to Jock's Point (tbe first
point on the left side looking up the
Lake from the foot) and the camping
site on the point was then thrown open
for discussion. This road will border
the lake and terminate ln a camping
site at the point.
The proposed site Is a flat on the
top of the point, which rises some one
hundred feet from the level of the
lake. The view from this height and
surroundings ln general would be a
great tourist attraction. Mr. McNlv-
en reported that he had been out to
the lake at tbe week end and nothing
has been done as yet In constructing
the proposed road. Mr. McKinnon
said that he had been speaking with
Mr. Bevan, district road engineer,
lately, and the latter had told htm
that the money was now available and
that work would he commenced shortly. A roads committee was appointed
consisting ot Messrs. T. H. Mumford

Social Hygiene Organization
The National Committee of the Canadian Social Hygiene Council, of
which His Excellency Lord Wlllingdon is the patron, has decided upon
a Dominion-wide Campaign for the
organization of voluntary health societies throughout Canada. The chief
object of this work Is to help parents
ln the guidance and training of their
children, particularly in respect to
the deviopment of character and creation or higher ideals of citizenship,
in order that the social diseases
which are present to an alarming
extent throughout the country may
be got under control.
To carry on this work, Dr. Murray
G.Thomson, Western Organizer of the
National Body ,has come to British
Columbia and is at present working
on Vancouver Mand. He proposes
within the next few weeks to visit the
towns of Duncan, Ladysmlth, Nanaimo, Parksville. Alberni, Union Buy
Cumberland, Courtenay and Campbell
River, to discuss the question of organization of a council for Vancouver
Island. Announcement of the dates
and place of meetings at various
points will b" made at a later date.

Nanaimo Ball Tossers Easy
For Courtenay In Double Header
Courtenay Advances in Island Baseball League at the Expense
of Nanaimo Eagles' Nine
One of the biggest crowds seen at a
baseball game for some time ln the
history of Courtenay baseball, turned
out to witness the double-header between the Courtenay and Nanaimo
teams here on Sunday In a Vancouver
Island Baseball League fixture. Nanaimo has always supported a good ball
team and It was freely predicted that
the locals would have to play air-tight
ball to hold their own, but either the
Coal City team has taken a slump or
else the locals have succeeded ln getting together an aggregation that will
be pretty hard to beat in Island baseball, for they won both games, the first
7 runs to S, and the second 18 to 3.
The swat-fest resulted in keen competition amongst the locals for the
.cult of clothes put up by the Comox
'Tailor for the first home run, but no
person annexed the calico. The first
.game was a fairly good game of ball,
.but wu spoiled ln one or two frames

The next toast was proposed to
"Our Medical Examiners" by Mrs. H.
Parkinson and responded to by Dr.
G. K. MacNaughton. Both toast and
response were of an exceedingly humorous nature.
Other toasts and items were:
Toast to charter members, Mrs. Davis, response Mrs; Gillespie.

The chairman after the toast to
Mother, asked those present to stand

opened this morning to the hlare nf trumpets and the waving
of many flairs of the happy thronj; of School children assembled.
The weather man holding the rain off fairly well, to the time of
writing, for the occasion. The Courtenay assembly of the B.P.O.E.
Klks headed the procession with the Courtenay Boys' Band which
filed from the School grounds to the Agricultural grounds where
the sports are taking place. The Elks had acclaimed it their
kiddies' day and each child was given a flag and a bag of sweets.
At 12:30 the sporls commenced in real ernest, each school
putting forth its greatest effort to attain the coveted Upper Island
Championship. All the schools are well represented and from the
look of the contestants the interest and competition will be keen.
Nanaimo had the misfortune to loose some of their teams on the
way up on account of sickness, some of the children had to turn
back. Perhaps our rough roads on this end of the Island were too
much for tho Nanaimoites, anyway Nanaimo was handicapped in
the relay and some of the-other races. The standinf of the schools
at 2:15 were as follows:
High School standing—Courtenay, 13; Cumberland, 12; Nanaimo High School, 10.
Public School Standing—Brechin, 13;Courtenay, 12;Tsolum, 10;
Northdeld, 7; Quesnel, 6; Comox, 6; Minto, 5; Cumberland, 2;
Bevan, 0.   Nanaimo Public School standing has not been received. PAGE TWO

; not true in every case but in far too many.
Let all prisoners be treated with kindness, wisdom, and practical philanthropy, without in any
c way coddling them. Help them to go forth from
' ! jail determined to be better and do better, give
| them a helping hand after they leave prison, allow-
i ing no stigma of imprisonment to attach them,
I and most so-called criminals can be redeemed.
! General Hughes' proposal not only reflects credit
upon himself but will bring satisfaction and pleasure to all people who have "Kindness in another's
trouble; Courage in their own". Let the government act in this matter without delay.
7y ENEKAI. HUGHES, the warden of Kingston
II Penitentiary, has made a proposal that, if
^"* adopted, should lead to a great change in the
lot of prisoners in our jails and convict prisons,
as well as assuring help to the dependent families
of inmates of prisons, undergoing punishment.
This good and sensible proposal is that prisoners
should be paid for their work and the money so
earned should go to the support of prisoners'
families or to themselves to help them get started
upon their return to liberty.
There is much to be said for the suggested plan.
For one thing, it would serve to prevent men losing all their self respect, as so often happens to
the prison inmate. The very thought that a man's
wife and children are deprived of his support tends
to lessen the prisoner's respect for himseli and
causes him to lose heart and hope. For another
thing, a prisoner would find a greater joy in working for wages than when performing the almost
endless, and nearly always useless tasks given
him to do under present conditions. To know that
the work he does has some value placed upon it
instead of merely a time-killer given to keep him
occupied, must help a man to feel he is still something of a man.
The whole theory of punishment by imprisonment is due for re-examination. Punishment if
it be solely vindicative and punitive is useless for
the purpose for which designed. Unless punishment aims at reforming men, rebuilding character
and aiding men to desire to become good citizens
once more it serves no useful purpose. It is at
once un-Christian and uncivilized; barbaric beyond
measure. Offenders against the law who are paying the penalty for their disrespect ot law ami
order are often so treated in prison as to make
them embittered against society and determined
upon revenge. They become dehumanized ire-
quently and the treatment they receive at the
hands of society makes them its enemies.  This is
AN EMINENT scientist, Sir Arthur Keith, has
been startling the world with the assertion
that death is the end of everything for man-
knd, claiming that there is no evidence to support
the assumption that the spirit survives after the
brain has ceased to function. What this dogr.ia-
tician could hope to gain through shattering the
faith of people robbing them of their hope ot
immortality, and the comfort which the thought
of reunion with loved one brings to all of us, we
cannot imagi le. Even were it true, the part ot
love and pity would be to leave people their
But it is not true. Life lives on. One came that
we "might have life and have it more abundantly,'
as He said. Cod is one, and the only power there
is. To concede that death can conquer life is to
admit that there is a stronger power in the universe than tho Creator of Life, which is manifestly absurd. Death is the negation of life. Life is
the great affirmative.   Life persists.
To get a correct view of the matter one must go
back to the beginning of things "In the beginning
God". The greatest of all teachers, Jesus .declared that God is Spriit. Back of all substance is
Spirit. The world is spiritual creation; man a
spiritual being. There is no other explanation ot
the universe. If then God created a universe out
of nothingness, the ether—term it what you will
—that creation of substance from spirit postulates
Life. If God be the Creator of Life, then death is
Life's antithesis, its opposite, its negation and,
therefore, non-existent.
Jesus conquered what men call death; His
resurrection is the best authenticated fact in all
history. So He became the Way-shower and mankind finds in the Christ principle the Way, the
Truth, and the Life. Let Keith die and go to the
dogs if he chooses, but mankind has eternal life.
Nay, even a Keith cannot separate himself from

Blood  Pressure
Blood pressure is the force that the
heart exerts in order to pump the
blood through the circulatory sysmu.
The heart is a hollow muscular organ
which acts as a pump to keep the blood
in circulation. The blood leaves the
heart in two streams. One stream
carries the blood to the lungs where
it Is purified; tlie other stream goes
to all parts of the body, carrying fi>od
to the tissues.
The arteries are hollow tubes which
carry the blood. Normal arteries are
soft and elastic. The impulse of the
heart beat is carried along through
the arteries and can he felt at the
wrist, where it is called the pulse.
Half-Million Dollar Addition Allows for Greater Development in Tire Industry
Hamilton, May 30.—Another milestone in Canadian Industry was passed recently, when the half-million dollar, extension to the Firestone Tire
& Rubber Company of Canada, Ltd.,
Hamilton plant, was opened for operation. Since this progressive company
commenced operations in Canada six
years ago, they have been compelled
to keep their plant going on an average of IS to 24 hours a day. To meet
the ever increasing demand for this
popular tire, the plant extension has
become absolutely necessary, and gives
an increased floor space of nearly
151,000 square feet, allowing an increase in production of 40'/c or 5.000
tires a day.
With an Investment now of nearly
$0,1100.0(10 in Canada, the Firestone
Company show their faith in the future development of this country. Approximately too people are employed
with an annual payroll of $2,000,000.
The new addition era >les the company to use the latest in 'thods in tire
construction, making possible the best
tire at the least cost to consumer.
The improvements in Firestone t'res
are tlie result of tireless research
work by engineers, chemists and designers. New methods of const! uc-
tlon and development have enalled
Firestone to give the public a i ew
and better tire built for extra long
mileage, safety and comfort.
Tho increase In sales of this tire is
laagely due to the co-operation F.re-
stone give their dealers. Firest me
tires are sold only through reputr. Me
dealers who give the public a Matter
Tire Service. Specially designed repair equipment is supplied to F re-
stone dealers, and educational meetings held allow them to keep abrr ist
of the times in selling and servicing
Firestone tires.
Firestone's greatest achievement in
tire building is the Gum-Dipped p '0-
cess. By this extra process, ev -ry
fibre of every cord in the tire is insulated with rubber which prove its
the strands chafing against each ot er
and causing internal friction— he
greatest enemy o ftire life.
Gum-Dipping made il possible for
Firestone to produce tlie first balloon
tire that lias revolutionized the tire-
industry and allows tlie maximum le-
gree of safety and comfort from th ise

In the normal, healthy body, the
blood pressure is normal. Certain
abnormal conditions, particularly
those affecting the heart, arteries and
kndneys, cause an alteration in the
blood pressure and It becomes abnormal.
An abnormal blood pressure Is not
a disease hut it ts a symptom of some
abnormal condition. It is a warning
sign and the physician seeks for and
treates the cause.
Disregard of the needs of the body
for exercise, rest, proper food and
such things, throws a needless strain
upon the whole system, and one symptom of this is frequently an Increased
blood pressure.
The family phsyiclan should he consulted regularly for advice as to how

discovering abnormal conditions, but
also for receiving advice as to how
to keep normal.

There   are   certain
'.y which Steehead, Raibow and Cutthroat trout may be distinguished, according to a  report made on  island
trout by J. tt. Dymond recently.
Steelhead is a term applied to n
certain large trout when taken in salt
water, or when il first moves from salt
Into fresh water to spawn, or for any
other reason. In the sea. and for u
short time after It, it is bluish above
and shows comparatively few spots.
I.i fresh water it gradually changes;
from blue to olive green above. Mora
ind larger spots appear with a red-
dinh band along the side, more pro-
:ounced nnd of n deeper color under
certain conditions.
Aa in the case with -both Atlantic
•\vA Pacific salmon, tlie young Steel-
head remains in fresh water for some
time before migrating to the .sea. The
time spent in fresh water varies from
one to several years, and some are
believed never to enter salt water,
being permanent residents of fresh j
ItiiJnbow Trout
Rainbow is the term applied to
black-spotted trout showing a red orj$|
purplish band along the side, Hence j *3
an individual trout may he a Rainbow ■ t>jj
at one period of its life and a Steel-' t$
head at another. Not all Rainbows,' Jm
however, migrate to the sea. and be-' jp>
come Steelheads, for some remain fe)
permanently in fresh water either hy ep%
choice or because they are landlock- j ^sj
ed. Some of the forms which have rM
been isolated for long ages from their r)%
sea-going relatives have developed ~{&
characteristics by which they may be 01
distinguished from them. i jfe
All Rainbow trout are no doubt 5jg
able to live in salt water, and forms1 $5}
which attafn only a small size in their i |«
native lake or stream would probably,!®
grow to a much larger size in the sea. J "33
Young Steelheads, if confined In a i-fw
brook or lake, would never grow very
large. It is interesting to note that
brown trout taken from Dorsetshire,
England to New Zealand quickly acquired a migratory habit and became
large silvery fish .inhabiting the sea
for the most part and ascending tha
rivers to spawn.
luttlirout Variety
Cutthroat trout gets Its name from
a deep red coloration on the under
side of the lower jaw. It also has
teeth on the back of the tongue in addition to the teeth further forward on
tlie tongue, which all trout possess.
The red under tbe lower Jaw varies
to a small, pinkish spot, and In many
cases to the entire absence of any
trace of red. Similarly the teeth on
the back of the tongue vary from a
definite series of strong teeth to a
small patch of weak ones, or none at'-sta
all. r^«
Recognition of cutthroats lacking; ?v-,
teeth on the hack of the tongue and | $&
under the lower jaw is often difficult
nl such cases It is uecsesary to, ltave| V*
considerable number of specimens for. Wt
examination. There are a number of |«H
forms of Cutthroats on the Island.!**
some of them migrate to the sea where
they take on Steelhead coloration.

A resolution wns also moved from
the floor of the convention and endorsed unanimously, thanking Mr. P.
P. Harrison, M.L.A., for the good work
he had done for the constituency during the past four years while a mem- '
ber of the Legislature.
Association Re-Organized
The convention then decided to reorganize the Central Liberal Association and the following officers were
Honorary President, Rt. Hon. W. L.
McKenzle King.

of Courtenay.
Executive Committee: One member
to be appointed from each local association in the riding.
The main business of the day was
then proceeded with, that of naming
the candidate for election. Two names
only were put before the convention,
those of Mayor J. W. McKenzle, of
Courtenay, and Mayor Alex. Maxwell,
of Cumberland, the former being nominated by Messrs. A. Hogg and P.
Qagne, the latter by Messrs. L. Finch
and J. Cameron. The name of Mr. J.
Sutherland, of Cumberland, was also
proposed but Mr. Sutherland refused
to allow his name to go before the convention. Upon all delegates having
voted by ballot, it was found that Mr.
McKenzle was the choice, he having 30
votes to Mr. Maxwell's 21, upon which
Mr. Maxwell moved that the choice be
made unanimous, which was done enthusiastically.
The candidate thanked the convention for their having chosen him and
said he would start out on his campaign immediately and do his best to
win lt. Mr. Maxwell also said that he
would get right behind Mr. McKenzle
and give him his hearty support.
Mr. Harrison was then called to the
platform and complimented the convention on their choice and promised
Mr. McKenzle his whole-hearted support.
A sumptuous lunch was then served
in the hall by the proprietor, Mr. Walter Crawford, after which a general
discussion on organization matters was
freely Indulged In and the meeting
then adjourned.
i Comment was freely made on the
| harmony with which the business of
j the convention was carried out and the
spirit of optimism which prevailed.

THE backbone of the world is its farm population... %
the strength of a nation is judged not so much by
its natural resources as by its ability to produce FOOD
... mankind's great essential.
Canada has long been called "the Granary
of the World" ... but few people seriously
think of British Columbia as an agricultural
province. Actually, more than three million
acres are now under cultivation ... 19 million
acres are still available ... an area equal to
Wales, Denmark and Belgium combined!
Agriculture has made greater progress In
British Columbia during the last ten years than
any of our industries. The actual increase In
volume was 121% . .. from 32 million dollars to
71 million. Think of it! Twenty-three thousand
farmers on three million acres of land producing food stuffs valued at 71 million dollars ...
and our actual total agricultural wealth estimated at Mi millions!
British Columbia's average return per farm
during the last two years has been $3,087 per
annum ... an average of $23.67 per acre under
cultivation, as against $12.13 for all Canada.
A record!
The strongest argument for our highly
fertile soil and our productive climate is found
in the ten years' average yield based on Federal
Field Crop Reports. These reports prove that
our soil and climate yield more liberally than
any other province.

A most encouraging feature of British
Columbia's agricultural situation is the keen
interest our government has and is taking in
this vital question. A stabilized prosperity for
all can only be assured by enabling the farmer
to gain a fair profit. With all shoulders to the

the tangible progress that has been so outstanding over this ten years record will seem

door.    She said, laughing:—
"Do go to the door, stupids! It's
probably Mltzi and Fritiz."
Carl did not stir, but Bruce walked
across the room, and Hung the door
back. Laughter met him. a hubbub of
greetings and chaffing. Pauli following his progress, stooped a second by
"Is anything wrong You haven't
been quarreling, have you? she pleaded  anxiously.
Carl shook his head his eyes fixed
on her rather desperately. She grew
restive under his look. She said, with
an effort at lightness: —
"You looked so—solemn, you two —
not at all like yourselves, you know."
Mitzi Winckelman came into the
room. She alwuys entered a room
with a little impetuous rush. She was
In her middle twenties, but looked
rather younger, a very pretty little
person, dark, vivacious, with a way of
clothes that only simirt Viennese women have. Her six year-old Kurt
stalked along beside her, trying to suit
his short stride to his mother's longer
swifter advance.
"Here's the first of us,' 'announced
Mltzi. "Are we late? Hello. Carl-
many happy returns. Pauli. how
pretty you look!"
Mitzi hud a breathless little voice.
She had, ton. an Inexhaustible vitality
and brought with her, wherever she
went, an air of tbe most delicate and
charming  gayety..
"Where's Fritz?" Pauli asked h:r.
"He's coming. I've been all morning
getting him dressed. He can't find a
thing. What makes men so helpless?
It's Mitzi. where's my tie?' and Mitzi,
what have you done witli my socks?'
and Mltzi, did you deliberately bide my

can be:—
"I dressed mysef!" lie announced
wiht proper pride.
Paul knelt down beside him and ruffled his spotless Sunday slate with
n great hug.   Mitzi gayly said:- -
"So he did. bless him -buttons, laces
and all. But not his father! Nil
Fritz! I wns certain you'd see him
across the courtyard. Why will men
stand undressed before open windows?"
She looked from Bruce to Carl.
Bruce chuckled and removed his pipe
long  enough   to   reply   weightily: —
"It's n problem thai has puzzled
the ages"—but Mltzi interrupted him

"It's their natural generosity I
Carl and Pauli and Bruce responded
with a shout of laughter, Mitzi's Utile
face was supernaturally grave as she
looked Inquiringly from one to the
other and asked:—
"Well, what else? Fritz was out
until al lhours drinking beer with the
paper's critic and"	
She halted and flushed Instinctively
clapping a little hand over her mouth.
Her friends looked at her questioning-
ly. Oneiiever knew what Mitzi might
say next. She recovered and went on
easily, but her eyes danced as if she
had just successfully eluded a danger.
"Aud some others. A lot of foolish
men—who'd be better off at home
Carl, what's wrong you don't look
overwhelmingly happy."
Cnrl smile.d.   "I'm hungry!" he said.
Kurt who had been confiding stale
secrets to his adored Pauli In u shrill
stage whisper, looked up approvingly. ,. iU/
He could understand why Uncle Curl j person, i
didn't look happy. Kurt himsilf always was hungry, He was hungry
now, He said as much in a loud, determined voice.
"Have patience," counselled Paull as
the little company found chdrs. "The
goose had to go hack into the oven
for a bit."
Mitzi gave an exaggerated sigh. She
asked   Carl,  "Presents'.'''
"Lots.    A  wrist   watch  from   Pauli

"Kill the enemy!"
Carl started. His thoughts, never
far from his play, went buck to it
again as lie heard its title spoken in
tiie clear little voice. He heard Bruce's next question.
"The enemy? And who are they—
'-Everybody but us!" answered Kurt
u little astonished at this further display of adult Btupidity . . . and secretly wondering, not for tlie first time, if
grown  ups .were as  Idiotic as  they
often pretended to be . . , or as wise
as  they always said  they  were.    He
added: —
"Any way, we can lick everybody!"
The  eiders  laughed  again  at  such
bellgorence  in  so small a creature.
Bruce continued with his questional re.
"Who told you that?   Funny thing,
hut it's exactly what my teacher used
in tell mi
Kurt's face fell. He looked exceedingly puzzled, and the others wattdied
him grope for an honest explanation
to this staggerer. He couldn't doubt
Uncle Bruce, of course . . . Uncle
Bruce was—himself, and .could do no
wrong. But something was inconsistent somewhere,
His face cleared.   He had found the
answer.    He said happily:—
"Then your teacher was a liar!"    ,
"Kurt!'  gasped liis mother. "Where
onearth did you hear such things?"
Carl turned to Pauli.   He said whim
"Out  of  the  mouths  of—well,  so
they teach it in the schools still, do
they?   And 1 expect people to believ
my play!"
Paull .shook her head at him. She
lifted a finger and levelled it at little
"Bloodthirsty Infantl No sword fo,
you. You'd be attacking the cat first
thing we know!"
Kurt's ayes filled.   But he mantullj
hit   hack  a   wall   of   disappointment
All was not yet ilost.   He asked Im-
plornigly:  —
"Well, then, what about the drum?'
Tliis persistence broke up the meeting.    As   tlie  laughter  subsided   into
chuckles as Bruce promised, liis hand

"Well—we'll  see!"
From a window fn  the other room
opening on the court a sound  if inu

"There's that man again; he never

"We hear him too," .Mitzi said. Ho
plays very well. Do you know wiio
he is, Pauli?"
"No. I've never seen him. He
came about two months ago. I'd miss
him if he went now; he's like a lovely
disenabled   voice—except   when   he's
just dofng scales."
The  hell   rang.
"Fritz—at last," announced Mitzi
going to tlie door just as the profess-
iv and Mr. Behrend came in from the
itudy. Behrend was talking, us usual

"I don't agree with you at all!"
"Of course, you don't. Nobody doe.*.

and looked him gravely in the eyes.
He said portentously: —

Bruce rescued the chairs and took

company, cleared his throat, rubbed
liis hands and announced:
"And now I'm compelled to rush
off for a few minutes."
"Fritz, thai means hours for you!"
' Not at all I have lo go to the office.   I've forgotten carl's present."
Carl, who bad   followed   Bruce  Into

"Pauli sa.s that dinner 'H almost

In announcing the new season after

destroy bear at any time If they are
doing damage to crops.
After approving the big game seasons fixed before, the Game Board will
