Principal Vance
Lectured Monday
Under the auspices of the Men's
Club of Holy Trinity Church,
Principal Vance of the Anglican
Theological College, Vancouver,
gave a most interesting address
in the Anglican Church Hall on
Monday last. Principal Vance
lectured here a year ago when he
took for his subject "The Church
and Labor." He made such a
good impression on that occasion
that an invitation was extended
to him to visit Cumberland again,
hence his visit here last Monday.
He took for his text on this occasion "Education and Citizenship."
The speaker, who has a clear,
penetrating voice, treated his subject in an interesting fashion,
interspersed with many humorous
passages.
Education, he said did not mean
acquisition of knowledge. Some
had knowledge but were charges
on the community. Educational
training should be for social adjustment, not education for isolation, but for co-operation. The
speaker went into this in detail,
citing numerous instances to bear
him out in his argument.
On the call of Mr. Thos. Banks
a hearty vote of thanks was accorded the Principal for his very
interesting and educative address
B.C.ChampionsGo
Down To Defeat
TheBrakman-Ker Football Cup
game played at South Wellington
.on Sunday last between Cumberland United, and South Wellington
resulted in a win for the boys
from the south. Owing to the
fiasco the previous week at Nanaimo, when the Cumberland
players left the field as a protest
against the "king of referees,"
sending Kenny and Conti off the
ffeld, the champions had a weakened team. Hitchens was moved
from the outside right position to
right full-back. Mortimer was
placed at centre-half, Brewster
brought from the inside left to
left-half back position, Appleby
taking Brewster's position, whilst
"Toots" Plump went to outside
right. Jock Sutherland being indisposed. Pilling, after being an
absentee for several games was
tried at centre-forward. South
Wellington were at full strength
and fully determined to advance
into the second round of the cup.
Details of the game are lacking,
but what can be gathered from
the fans who journeyed to South
Wellington, the football displayed
by both teams was of a very poor
nature. The Cumberland forward
line was very weak and at no
stage of the game were they able
to get going. The half-back line
was also very weak anil Campbell
at left back was absolutely oil'
form. The only members of the
team to show any skill at all being
Archie Boyd in goal and Charlie
Hitchens at right back. The home
team played typical cup-tie football, playing the kick and rush
game, eventually running out
winners by the only goal scored.
On Saturday last word was received'in Cumberland that the No.
4 Mine Surface First Aid Team had been awarded the first prize in
th,e recent dominion wide First Aid competition. The team is composed of A. J. Taylor (Capt.), J. A. Quinn, H, Boffey, J. Lockhart
and Chas. Nash. The winning of the Coderre Cup, which is emblematic of the dominion championship in the mining division, is a
great honor to the team, also to the district, and goes to prove that
wonderful progress has been made by this team, which is not yet
two years old,
Last year, immediately after
the team was organized, Captain
Taylor entered for the championship competitions and came out of
the ordeal in second place, Capt.
Barton's team of Nanaimo being
first with only a small margin to
spare. This caused a spirit of
friendly rivalry between the two
teams, Capt. Taylor was determined to wir. this year if hard
work and constant study on the
actly reversed. Captain Barton
having to be content with second
place. To be first or second in
such a great competition is a great
honor as a very large number of
teams took part in the competition
and for Vancouver Island to be
first and second for the second
year in succession proves the in
terest that is being taken in first
aid work.

Confetti Carnival
Splendid Success
On Tuesday evening last, one
of the most delightful affairs of
the season was held in the Hollo
dance hall under the auspices of
the Maple Leaf Legion No. 53
Loyal Order of Moose in the
form of a Confetti Carnival at
which over three hundred persons were in attendance.
The hall was beautifully decorated for the occasion, there being long streamers of red, blue
and purple crepe paper rnnning
the entire length of the hall
while the pillars were covered
with pale blue matching the border, altogether giving the interior a very artistic effect.
The first part of the evening
which commenced at 9:30 was
followed by the serving of refreshments at 11:30 after which
the confetti carnival really had
begun and it was not many minutes before everyone was dancing
through (lurries of confetti and
streamers which was distributed
under the convenorship of Mr.
M. Brown.
When the home waltz was
played at 2;30 the Maple Leaf
Legion No. 53 had given their
first dance in the city of Cumberland and they may well be
proud of their efforts in making
this affair the success it was.
Mr. Brewer Talks
On Prospecting
Mr. W. M. Brewer, Resident
Engineer gave another of his very
interesting talks in the Lecture
Hall of the Athletic Club on Saturday last.
The lecturer pointed out to an
appreciative audience the relation
:of the different stratas forming
the earth's crust, more particularly the relation to the carboniferous and pre-cambrian ages wherein most of the coal that is found
lies, He also spoke on the methods used in co-relating the one
strata with the other and the difference between the formations
making use of the animal fossils
found in them.
Mr. Brewer will give his next
lecture here on April 18th when
he will, with the aid of a map, go
over the district that he considers
the best gremd for a prospector
to work over. This district lies
between Rock Creek and Atlin,
B.C. a distance of about nine
hundred miles by about one hundred miles wide.
These lectures are promoted by
the government and a cordial invitation is extended to all who
are interested.

numbers to take part.
Interesting Talk
By Mr. Mackenzie
Before a very representative
audience of teachers and parents
interested in educational matters,
Mr. Mackenziewhoisan Inspector
of Schools in New Zealand, but
who has exchanged places with
an Inspector of Schools for B.C.,
delivered a most interesting lecture on "Educational Systems in
New Zealand."
Mr. Mackenzies' visit was due
to the Teacher's Association, with
the co-operation of the Parent-
Teacher's Association who felt it
would be an enlightment to get a
glimpse into the educational systems of our friends across the
seas, and so be able to compare as
well as benefit by the interchange
of ideas.
Mr.Mackenzie held his audience
in rapt attention, and as the glowing account of his experience in
that land along with the high
plane on which education was
placed,.one could imagine that the
teachers were longing to get
to that place where even their
most sanguine hopes would be
more than realized.
Judging from the address given
the government of New Zealand
fully realize the part that education is doing in building up a
country with the highest type of
citizenship, and they evidently
spare no expense in achieving
their object.
Teaching he said in New Zealand was a profession, while in B.C.
it seemed to him was more of a
procession, which remark caused
quite a smile on many faces. The
government there did two things
which were essential, they paid
good salaries, and gave their
teachers security of position as
long as they did their part.
Rural districts, said the speaker
were especially looked after, in
fact most teachers had to go from
their study to a country district
first, this rule holding good with
very few exceptions, and so the
necessity of the country children
receiving the very best education
was constantly before the minds
of the government. Theaddress
wasan eye-opener to mostof those
present, one lady suggesting that
no doubt New Zealand was the
place where the pot of gold was
at the end of the rainbow. There
were several questions asked, the
lecturer answering in a very lucid
manner.
Mr. Mackenzie was given a
very hearty vole of thanks for his
most enjoyable address, am! if
some of our teachers are absent at
roll call some day, it might be best
to send acablegram to NewZeland
as they will no doubt be found in
the happy hunting ground for
teachers.
The friends of Mrs. S L. Rob
ertson will be sorry to hear that
she is ill and has been removed
to the hospitcl.
Mr. S. L. Hill, of Vancouver,
Deputy Supreme Secretary of the
Loyal Order of Moose paid a visit
to the local Moose Lodge during
the week. Mr. Hill was delighted
with the progress made by the
Cumberland Lodge.
Gymnasium classes are being
held on Mondays, Wednesdays
and Fridays at the hours of 11.00
a.m. to 12.00 a.m. and 7.00 p. m.
to 8.00 p.m. for boys, while the
men's classes will be held on
Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays from 7.00 p.m. to 9.00 p.m.
The men's class is growing to
such an extent that two periods
will have to be set aside to ac
commodate them. Among the
members of the men's class there
are some very promising gymnasts.
MRS. ASQUITH IN AMERICA
Mrs. Asquilh, wife of the Ex-Prime
Minister of Uritatn has been meeting
with a mixed reception on her Lecturing
tour in America.
At a largely attended meeting in the
Symphony Hall Boston, the "Boston Globe"
says, "Mrs. Asquith created a bit of a sensation when she appeared in a black gown
that clangclosely to her sparse form, and
accentuated the slenderness of her lerjs
clad in flesh-colored stockings, which
showed about half way to the knee as she
stood and somewhat more liberally when
she sat."

FORESTS AND FIRESIDES
There was, at one time, a widely distributed poster in
British Columbia, whicli stated iliut the Forest Dollar was
British Columbia's payroll.
It was noticed at the time, but times were prosperous,
and It ia doubtful if the real significance of the idea was
fully realized. Lot when the lumber trade Is slaek aud
mills and camps are siiut down, business depression becomes evident on ail Bides, and ail trades are forced to
snare in the consequent loss of business.
The grocery, hardware, wire rope and boiler machinery
houses are but a few of the business lines that are hit,
and this of course is rellected on the men employed, tor
whom there is no work and thus no pay cheque,
The logger walks disconsolately ami aimlessly around
the cities and towns ot which lie is mil a part, tiie screaming saws of tite mills nre silent, and empty railroad ears
itand idle In the terminals, and tug boats no longer wend
their way fussily through harbors congested with shipping,
and the many bottoms which usually carry the lumber of
British Columbia to the Seven Sets lie at anchor, tiiti only
movement being that occasioned hy the tides.
Imagine, so far as concerns the tremendous lumber industry, this condition made permanent. What is there to
take its place? There is no other natural resources in
this large province that could hope to compete with lumbar as a means of so widely distributing the payroll which
accompanies an active lumber industry, hut each anil
«very year sees tiie heedless destruction of millions of
feet ot green timber which should have provided a livelihood for the logger and mill hand, simply because of a
certain apathetic anil careless section of the public which
finds its way into the woods is careless with fire.
It nt such times as this the lesson is forced upon us as
to the results which follow in the wake ot a temporarily
depressed lumber market, imagine what would be the
result of a complete seceation, for a long period of years,
of the lumber industry.
Let this lesson sing in, and then realize that every forest
tire brings this province a step nearer to the stagnancy
io far as affects the marketing of British Columbia's most
mpoi-taut crop, that of her green forests.

Dunlop Double-Life, High-
Mileage Cord and Fabric Tires
Save You More Money
Than Ever
Compared to a few years ago tire users are getting easily double—and even
more than double— the mileage in the tires of to-day.
Ten,  twelve  and   fifteen  thousand  miles  are just  average mileages to-day.    And
the records on the rw.d show that Dunlop Cord Tires and Dunlop Fabric Tires are
even exceeding these mileages.
With Dunlop big mileage you have rock-bottom prices and paramount tire quality
—tire quality that is accepted as standard to-day, and which other makers are vainly
striving to duplicate.
When you can get a tire with precti^r back of it like DUNLOP, and with practically
an unlimited guarantee, why chance your iifo on a second-rate tire at any price?
In Dunlop Cord 1 ires you have "1 raction " and " Ribbed" to choose from.
In Dunlop Fabric Tires you have "Traction," "Ribbed," " Special,"" Clipper," "Plain."

MOST VALUABLE BEADS
Probably  the  choicest   and   most
valuable beads in the world are those
possessed by the natives of Borneo,
[, In many cases they are very old, and
have been kept tor centuries In one
family. Some are thought to be of
Venetian origin, while others resemble
a Roman variety. It Is difficult to Induce the natives to sell their beads,
which they guard as heirlooms. A rich
chief may possess old beads to the
value of many thousand dollars.
When children are small they are carried on the backs of their mothers in
a kind of cradle, which is often
elaborately adorned with beads. One
chief possessed a cradle valued at a
thousand dollars.
The best thing out Is being out of
debt.
NOT WHAT SHE MEANT
A certain young lady who takes a
great interest in various children's
societies got on to an Esquimau car,
aud, seeing a familiar looking gentleman, nodded and sot down beside him.
On closer inspection she discovered
that it was a case of mistaken identity, and at once apologized, saying:
"Oh, I beg your pardon, 1 thought
you were the father of one of my
children." "Like   I am!" remarked the man addressed, and he
promptly arose and fled.

Organization Of
Safety Work
In organizing safety work, cordial
co-operation unit enthusiasm are
essential. The tlelinito purpose of a
safety campaign is the immediate reduction ot easily-preventable accidents and a gradual reduction of all
accidents. The number of accidents
occurring annually is convincing
proof tbat tbe problem demands a
vigorous and continuous campaign
backed by adequate financial support,
and uuovo all by the active sympathy
and energy of all the ollicials of the
company. Experience has proved that
satisfactory conduct of a safety campaign requires organization for carrying out three branches of the work, as
follows:
(1) An organization that provides
an enthusiastic and hardworking
■>atety committee or department, an
adequate inspection system, and the
hearty co-operation of officials and
employees.
12) A system of education that will
assist all employees to follow more
carefully tbe sale and proper methods
ot work, aud will keep them constantly alert to tbe need of caution.
(Ii) A scheme of safety measures
designed to eliminate as far as possible dangerous conditions that have
caused accidents, or may cause them.
The approximate relative values of
these different factors has been
summed up by safety experts as follows: Organization, 45 per cent.;
education, U0 per cent; safety measures, 25 per cent.
In giving relative values to these
factors tbe majority of the leading advocates of safety iu the various industries place the greatest emphasis
on organization and education. The
lowest value is placed on safety
measures because of their inadequacy
in themselves, so far as preventing I
most accidents is concerned. The
ligures, although a mere approximation at best, form a practical basis for
safety work.

"SAFETY FIRST"
Preventable mine accidents are generally attributed to carelessness, Insufficient Inspection, inexperience, uu-
safe practices, lack of safeguards,
violation ot instructions, Indifference,
defective equipment, use of intoxicants, Insufficient lighting, poor judgment, and many other Indirect causes.
The "Safety First" movement alms
at minimizing such preventable accidents, and the complete co-operation
and active sympathy of officials and
employees is earnestly requested iu
this humane work.
n view of the wonderful attainments of tho safety movement In the
past few years, during which time the
hazard of coal-mining has been greatly
reduced, It is believed that ull risks
can bo greatly lessened, and the
management of the Canadian Collieries
are sparing no expense to further reduce the risks accompanying the
hazardous industry of coal mining.
It is not to be expected that coal
mining will ever ho entirely free from
accidents, but a very largo percentage
of the accidents are preventable, and
as previously stated, the object of tho
sat'etay movement is to reduce and
ultimately eliminate all preventable
accidents.
SAFETY PRECEPTS.
1. "Safety First." Put the dent In
accident.
2. Fifty per cent, of all accidents
in coal mines are caused by falls of
roof and coal.   Watch your roof.
3. Better be safe and sure than
crippled and poor.
•1. Compensation paid to a workman
who hns been injured ts at best only
poor reparation for time lost and pain
suffered.
5. Self-preservation is the lirst law
of nature.   Let us obey law No. 1.
6. Some one's carelessness is the
cause ot nearly every accident—don't
be the one.
7. lie careful all the time aud you

Powerful Story
Told In_"Kazan"
The attraction at the Ilo-llo Theatre
for Friday and Saturday will be "Kazan"
a photodrama described as "extraordin'
ary" from the pen of James Oliver Cur
wood, an author who won undying fame
for his "Back to God's Country,, and
"The River's End" and, "Nomads of
the North." This product'of the Curwood
knowledge of the Far North and of
natural history is being presented by
George H. Hamilton. The title used is
the same as that made famous by the
author in his remarkable tale of the
;;reat wolf-dog known as "Kazan the
Killer" and the story has to do with a
gripping tragedy and a love affair which
wander through many nooks and corners
of a Northern Wilderness little known
to man. The piece de resistance of this unusual photoplay is the
wonderful lesson.of faithfulness taught
by the dog "Kazan." His master foully
murdered, Kazan turns against all man
kind until he he feels the friendly touch
of the hand of beautiful Joan Radisson,
a lovely flower in an otherwise hostile
wilderness. Kazan never forgets the
murder of his master and he never forgets the act of this girl in setting him
free though he becomes a savage and
joins a wolf pack. Later when this pack
sets upon the girl and a man "mushing"
across the snows to reach her dying
father, Kazan fights off the wolves and
saves the couple, Once more he comes
to her rescue when a wolf in a human
form presses his unwelcome attentions
on her in a lonely cabin. And finally he
"gets" his prey, the man who killed his
master and who has come between this
girl and her lover. Triumph and happiness crown the protracted efforts of the
couple to combat many obstacles, for
Kazan shows them the way.
An excellent cast interprets the
various picturesque characters in this
photoplay. An extra attraction is a two-
reel comedy "Nonsense" and "Mutt and
Jeff.".
A special attraction for Monday and
Tuesday is the "Bonnie Brier Bush" a
British Paramount picture. All scenes
in this delightful Scottish picture was
made in Scotland by the Jesse L. Lasky
Co. It is a wonderful picture, do not
miss it. The usual comedy reels will be
screened also.
