COURTENAY, June 23.—Tourists
and others arriving ln the centre ofj
town are now able to set their directions for Comox and Campbell River
from the sign post at the Intersection!
of the Island Highway and Union St. i
This ls a decided Improvement and

"cul-de-sac" In the "Orchard", groping about in an attempt to regain the
elusive highway.
Alderman J. J. Potter, who
met with a serious accident
whilst following his employment at No. 4 Mine, has decided to go Into business for himself. He has rented the old
Marshall Music Co. Store on
Dunsmuir Avenue and will open
tomorrow (Saturday) with a
full line of candles, tobacco, etc
and wlllalso serve light lunches, afternoon teas, ice cream
and all that goes with a high-

harsh ones.
In view  of the  wilful
that has taken place during the past
few weeks at   the   popular    sports
grounds,   It   was   necessary   for   the
football club to adopt sterner measures.     With that end In view, not- show their appreciation by patronlz
Ices  were  again  placed  at  all   en-i|ng  the  stand;   three  parta  of  the

via Parksville, there will never be the
direct intercourse which nature haa
intended. The Cumberland district
produces the fuel which the Albemis
require, while the fertile Alberni valley has agricultural produce for which
ah outlet is imperative.
The road at the northern end terminates at Comox Lake, while the southern end is built to Beaver Creek. It
is estimated that the construction of
the new road by way of the Ash
River valley would entail about 22
miles of new construction, on a river
grade, except where the divide between the rivers flowing west and
east rises lo an elevation of about
1,200 feet, or comparable with the
Malahat summit, which has been successfully negotiated. The only expensive construction appears to be
along the soutli shore of Comox Lake,
which would be heavy rock conduction.
j (ieneral Advantage
j Apart from the traffic and Industrial value of such a road would he
tlie opportunity for Arc protection,
which would be afforded by common
cation through a valuable stand of
timber, for work of the forest rangers. Public bodies, both in Alberni and Port Alberni. are united in
sponsoring this effort.
This would also enable the belt
route—a splendid scenic loop—to be
used by tourists who had traversed
lhe  Island Highway from  Parksvllle
TO OUR PATRONS
Many were the pedestrians that
wended their way to Mayor Parnham's
lawn on Wednesday afternoon, to partake of the delightful refreshments
being served by the Ladles' Aid and
to enjoy selections rendered by Cumberland's City Band. From reports,
the party was a financial success.

DOWN-BUT NOT OUT
There has been so much written (in
the Nanaimo papers), about the semifinal game In the Connaught Cup series, when Nanaimo beat the local
eleven by a score of three goals to
one, that It is almost useless to attempt to give a true report of the
game. N'anaimo was one lucky team
to he two goals up at half time.
Cumberland has easily as much of
the play as their opponents In the
first half, and had the chance, presented to "Toots" Plump In the early
stages of the game been taken advantage of. it would most assuredly have
been the local's game. The team
played three strenuous games In
eight days, the result ot which was
easily to be seen fn the physical condition of Blair, Mortimer and Mon-
oghan; neither ot these players
should have been playing, but It re-
downs greatly to their credits that
they- were willing to play, whilst suffering from damaged legs. Blair
was hy no means himself, and had he
only played half his usual game, the
home team would never have scored.
Mortimer and M inoghan, however.
forgot about their Injuries and put up
a marvelous exhibition.
So far as the umberlaiid team Is
concerned. II is down, but by no
means out. and when the new soccer season rolls round our opponents
to the south ot us will realize that
Cumberland Is back, stronger than
ever. We sincerely hope and trust
that Nanaimo City will bring honor
to tlle Island and land back with the
Connaught Cup. Personally, we
have our doubts whether they can
accomplish this or not after last Sun-
urday's game. They will have to
play a much better brand of football
to get over thc strong St. Andrews'
team. In an effort to give the Nanaimo boys a practice game and to
increase the funds of the club an exhibition game will be staged at the
hub city on Saturday when the Cumberland team will endeavor to give
McDougall, Stobbart and Co. what
they failed to give them last week—
a darn good beating.

early and are doubtless the forerunners of a large crop.
The excellent rains of tlle early
part of this month having supplied
the necessary moisture, the berries
are lilling out nicely. It will be a
week or so before raspberries are on
liie market in any quantity. Local
strawberries are plentiful, they are

FOUND   GUILTY
OF   ASSAULT
COURTENAY, June 19.—A dispute
between two orientals over a monetary debt had a sequel In the local
police court on Friday, when, before
Magistrate Hames, S. Kakinchi was
found guilty of assaulting another
Japanese named Ogl. and was lined
$10.00 and costs.
DRAINAGE SYSTEM
IS BEING IMPROVED
COURTENAY. June 23.—The drainage improvement decided upon by tne
city council some months ago, is no-.,-
being put into effect. Tlle depression
In the north west side of the town
known as "Hungry Hollow" Is now
served with a deeper outlet for the
water that accumulates in this section. The drain that carries the surplus water from the business section Is being lowered three feet to en.
able the water to be carried off tho
low ground at the rear of the Sun
Drug Co's premises on Union Street.
The digging of this ditch which
rrosses the street has necessitated
considerable work, as it was neces-
sery to excavate to a depth of twelve
feet on some, three feet lower than
the former drain. Messrs Wm. Far-
mlere has charge of the work.
STRAWBERRIES FOR
VERMILLION, ALBERTA
COURTENAY, June 22.—On Tuesday morning Mr. H. S. Baker, salesman for the Berry Growers, made a
small shipment of strawberries to

load of lumber, the horse driven by
Mr. Lockhurst of the Cumberland
Knatl stumbled, causing the fourteen
year old son of Mr. Lockhurst to fall

Mrs. Nesblt's hoarding house where
Dr. Tillman A. Uriggs attended him.

WATERFRONT PRESENTS
BUSY ASPECT NOW
COURTENAY. June 19.—The water
front has presented a busy aspect the
past week. The S.S. Coaster came in
with a large load of hay and feed;
the fodder being consigned to Messrs
Brackman & Ker, other local feed
merchants being the recipients of tlie
mill feeds.
The bi-weekly service of the Van

which was inaugurated last week ls
proving fairly successful. It was
thought that the merchants of the
district would take better advantage
of this Improved service. Mr. H. G.
Wallles of the Vancouver-Courtenay
Transportation Co., was ln town with
Mr. Charles Simms, the local agent,
on Saturday.
Capt. A. W. Lewis ot the Olallie"
says that In attempting to leave port
on Saturday morning he was unable
to negotiate the sand bar in the river

FILLING UP THE PAPER
Year after year the newspapers of this country go on donating columns of space to church
suppers, festivals, excursions, concerts and every
form of amusement which has for its ultimate
object the gathering in of the shekels, not for the
editor who booms the affair and gets the people
out, but for the people to whom the space has been
given.
True, the editor is supposed to be well paid
for the space he devotes to thc supper or festival,
by the two pink tickets sent to him by the committee (SOMETIMES), which entitle the editor
and his better half to pursue the gentle oyster
through the marsh of soup, or perchance to capture the seductive strawberry at the festival.
But pink tickets to suppers or festivals, how-
lever enjoyable or hilarious the occasion, do not
I supply a share of the fund for the inevitable night
! mare of the week, the payroll, nor help to pay for
i paper, and the thousand and one expenses that
are incident to the publishing of a newspaper.
j Whatever the paper has printed to advertise
lany affair of the kind has been a gift of time,
(space and influence, all of which costs the editor
| and publisher a certain amount of clean, cold
cash.
j While the people who are continually asking
I these favors of the editor realize the value of the
service to themselves, it never seems to enter
their heads that that which is given so freely has
a certain monetary value to the donor. Rather
do they regard the editor's space as a free field,
into which anyone may step at will, and gaze, as
do the cows upon the village meadows.
Really, some of these people imagine they are
doing the editor a favor by giving him leave to
print the matter they bring to him—helps him
fill up his paper, you know.
Better shut up and seem dull than loosen up
and be foolish.
The nice thing about being a nobody is that
when you make an ass of yourself nobody notices
it.

Big Story-
"West Of The Water Tower"
-Great Cast
Guy Plummer, son of Juction City's orthodox minister, is the hit of the program of the high school
graduation exercises. All the world is before him to conquer, not to speak of Beatrice Chew, the
beautiful girl in town. Guy invites Bee to attend a box social and she accepts. His father is waiting for him when he returns and upbraids him for associating with the daughter of an infidel. The
boy tells his father that he will not see her again. But the following Friday at a band concert in
the public square, he rides homes with Bee and her father. Mr. Chew leaves them alone and they
talk of love. Gug gathers Bee ln hie
arms and kisses her.
A week later ln the neighboring
country Cod Ougan, proprietor of
Junction City's pool hall, gets Squire
Peabody to perform a marriage cere
mony for Guy and Bee. The mar
rlage Isn't exactly regular and It U
to take a week or two to get the
papers.
As time passes and the papers are
not forthcoming, Bee suggests that
she might go to her aunt's In Kansas City for a while, but lt will tako
quite a lot of money and she does
not dare tell her father that he ls
soon to become a grandparent. Guy
tries to borrow (200 from Mr. Arn-
halt. a member of the delegation
which had come from Kansas City
to Invite Adrian Plumber to their
church, but falls, so the next night
he robs Ed. Hoecker's commission
house. Bee returns ln the Spring
with the baby. Guy confesses all to
his father and Adrian Plummer summons his parishioners, and tells them
he is to blame for his son's act, because he too. In bis youth, had committed the sin of the flesh.
The town turns against Guy. He
is forced to give up his position at
the drug store. Through circumstantial evidence, the robbery of
Hoecker's commission house is traced to Guy and he is sentenced to sixty
days in Jail. Guy goes to Bee's home
when he leaves Jail only to be told I Then a crisis is reached. A coast-
that the family has gone away and' to-coast highway Is to be built

is no work for a Jail bird. His fath-i must have it, anil now that Charles

to the extent of $2500.00. Now, as
newspaper salaries ran in those dayi*.
I that amount represented what mll-
, Uonaires were popularly reputed lo
: possess, but which to a newspaper
1 man was only a dream of rosy hue.
The "iiever-say-ille" spirit asserting
' itself, however. Powell set about
| scheming for ways and means to remove himself from' lhe red side of
the ledger and, being a newspaper
man, he linally decided lo defeat the
dread debt monster with his trusty
typewriter. If this were an Horatio
Alger tale il would have been an easy
matter for the director, fur he would
doubtless have written a Broadwuy
success or the lirst of the six best
sellers, hut. being a tale trom life,
it was not that simple.
The course that Powell followed
was not one that would be thought
of by many people, but it was most
certainly effective, both for Immediate results and for the increase of the
Powell store of knowledge. He went
out to a news stand and bought copies
of every trade journal obtainable
These he look home and perused
studiously uiuil he learned the style
nf matter each was using, and then
each evening, after his dally labors,
he sat down and wrote out local contributions Ihat he thought might be
accepted l.y lhe various editors. Until two in the morning he burned tho
midnight oil grinding out articles nn
every Imaginable topic. There were
articles ou the pottery industry, tin-
.vare, shoe polish, clothing and everything that the mind of man bad up to
.hat time conceived.
