FORTY-FIFTH YEAH—No.  8.
CUMBERLAND, BRITISH COLUMBIA      FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 19, 1926.
SUBSCRIPTION PRICE: TWO DOLLARS PER ANNUM
$1,000 FOR ROAD WORK
ON DUNSMUIR AVENUE
CITY COUNCIL DECIDES
When Alderman J. Ledlngham, at
Monday's regular meeting ot the City
Council, broached the subject of 1926
estimates for road work the council
evidently decided that there is -no
time like the present and therefore
Immediately settled down to give the
question a thorough airing. No little
discussion was Indulged In by the
whole Board but it finally arrived at
the conclusion that (1,000 would take
care ot Dunsmuir Avenue and $400
would put Fourth Street in first class
shape. It Is expected that the work
on Fourth Street will commence just
aB soon as the district engineer sanctions the proposal. Both thoroughfares are secondary highways and in
consequence the government will contribute forty per cent of the amounts
noted above.
Lighting Sates
Mr. R. J. Selfe made application
for the position of auditor for the
city and schools for the year 1926.
He received the appointment. The
only other communication was from
tbe president of the Electric Lighting Co., and speaks for itself. It
read as follows:
"Gentlemen:—Aldermen Potter and
Parnham called on the President of
the Cumberland Electric Lighting Co.
on Saturday, Feb. 13th, stating they
were a committee appointed by the
Council to request a reduction iu
lighting rates charged for current
supplied to patrons of the Company.
"Owing to Monday being the annual
meeting of the Water and Light Companies, it will be Impossible to give
your board a reply before the end
of the week.
"Special Directors' meeting of the
Cumberland Electric -Lighting Co.,
Ltd., wlll be called this week and a
reply sent your board."
Yours truly,'
Oeo. W. Clinton, etc.
The Council filed the above letter
with the hopes that the reply to be
received this week would announce
a reduction ln the rates.
Bills and accounts to the amount
ot $254.43 were ordered paid, while
the following bank balances were reported: general account $4060.60;
school account $8318.43; savings account $33.81. Aid. Potter'reported a
certain amount ot road work done
on Third and Fourth Streets as well
as several natch basins cleaned out.
The full Board was ln attendance
with the exception of Aid. Mumford.
However, owing to the serious Illness
of his daughter, Mayor Maxwell did
not feel equal to sitting out the whole
meeting, and therefore stayed but a
few minutes. On his departure Aid.
C. J. Parnham took the chair.
CHINESE NEW YEAR
CELEBRATED IN THE
QUAINT OLD CUSTOM
Last week-end the Chinese New
Year was ushered Into Cumberland's
Chinatown with all the Insane noises
and quaint old customs that John
Chinaman delights in on this occasion. The merry-making commenced
Friday afternoon and continued until
Sunday, nearly every resident of the
over-crowded collection of houses and
shacks that form Cumberland's China
town, taking part ln the festivities,
the exceptions being a few "moderns"
who are breaking away from this
old custom. Numberless fire crackers and the larger "bombs" kept up
a fitful popping until well Into the
early hours of both Saturday and
Sunday mornings.
The Chinese are very liberal at
this time of the year, there being
scarcely a laundryman of this nationality (and there are many here) who
did not present each of his customers
with various piesents—a cigar or two
for the man of the house, fire crackers for the children, and a liberal
portion of Chinese nuts for all.
BADMINTON GAMES
BETWEEN PARKSVILLE
AND ROYSTON ARE OFF
Owing to the Parksvllle Badminton
Club being engaged ln a tournament
at Errington, the series of friendly
games arranged with the Royaton
club for this week end have been cancelled.
District Tournament to Start Som
It is expected that a start will be
made with the open tournament for
the Comox district during the coming
week. It ls within the bounds of possibility that the tournament next year
will be thrown open to the whole ot
tbe Island. There Ib, however, a
standing rule that all semi-finals and
finals be played in tbe Comox district,
in fact, we see no reason why all the
games, from the first round could not
be played in the district, as we have
ln the Royston Imperial Pavilion,
the finest Badminton Hall in the province of British Columbia, containing
three full size doubles courts and one
full size singles court,
TENNIS HOUNDS ARE
BEGINNING TO AROUSE
FROM HIBERNATION
As the coming of spring and line
weather arouses the bear from bis
long winter sleep, so the beautiful,
almost summer-like days of the past
few weeks have aroused the local
tennis "hounds" from their enforced
hibernation and sent them scurrying
after racquets and balls ln an endeavor to get in as many games as
possible while the  weather holds.
Both here and in Courtenay, last
Saturday saw the enthusiasts lobbing
and volleying, cutting and chopping
on the respective courts and some
very fine games were reported, in
■plte ot the fact that the balls used
were a year old and somewhat "dead."
The 1926 balls are not in stock In
tbe local stores yet but will be very
soon, It Is stated,
Cumberland players Intend to make
an early start this year, hoping to
bring home all the district championships as well as "cleaning up" on a
few Clubs not ln the District.

WELSH GLEE CLUB OF
NANAIMO IS COMING
HERE MARCH FIRST
The Welsh Glee Club, of Nanaimo,
will be heard in Cumberland on the
occasion of the celebration of St
David's day, March 1st, by the local
Welsh Society. The celebration will
be held in the Ilo-llo ball room and
will take the form of a supper, concert and dance. At the dance a number of old time dances will be In
dulged in Tickets for the above celebration are selling rapidly and admission wlll be by ticket only, so if
you have not already got one better
hurry.
A deep gloom was cast over the
whole city last Tuesday when It became generally known that Miss Jessie Maxwell had passed away ln the
early hours of the morning In the
Cumberland General Hospital. Death
came mercifully between the boura
of one and two o'clock, culminating
a struggle between life and death
that had been going on ever since.
the young girl was operated on Sunday morning for appendicitis. The
appendix was removed quite successfully but complications which had set
In made the case hopeless from the
start, Even so, the four doctors of
the Comox District waged an almost
superhuman though vain battle to
keep the spark ot lite burning.
Miss Maxwell, seventeen years and
seven months of age, was the second
daughter ot Mayor and Mrs. Alexander Maxwell to whom goes out
the sympathy of every resident In
Cumberland. Born ln this city, she
had resided here until the past few
months wblch were spent in Courtenay. Consequently her quiet but
appealing personality made friends
for her on every side, especially
amongst the girls and boys of her
own age. Their grief at her passing
could not be any greater had she
been their own sister. Besides her
parents, the deceased girl leaves a
brother and three sisters to mourn
her toss.
Particulars of the funeral, which
was field yesterday afternoon, will
be found elsewhere In this Issue.

that 90 per cent have infected mouths
and that 80 per cent have pyorrhea.
Wonderful cures and great strides
towards recovery have been made by
these patients under dental treatment.

Chaney Tells How He Keeps
Make-Up
Keeping It Fresh Under Hot
Sun Is Bis Problem
How does Lon Chaney preserve his
Intricate make-up, which plays such
an Important part In his screen characterizations?
Known as the greatest make-up
artist of the screen, Chaney often
takes several hours to complete his
facial characterizations. Should this
make-up become marred during the
day, lt would be necessary to take off
the entire thing and spend several
more hours replacing tt with a similar one.
In ordinary scenes there ls little
danger of his make-up becoming ruin
ed but the problem of keeping It fresh
under the rays of the warm California Bun was a very serious one until
years of experiments resulted in a
solution of the difficulty.
When there Is any danger of the
heat causing his grease paint to run
Chaney now applies small packs ot
some mysterious substance to his face
If the grease has become soft, lt Immediately hardens again. This process Is repeated between scenes,
thus permitting the actor to wear thc
same make-up throughout the entire
day.
Experimented Years
Chaney, who Is now co-starred with
Norma Shearer In "The Tower of
Lies," a Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer production directed by Victor Seastrom
and shown at the Ilo-llo Theatre, tonight, Friday and tomorrow. Saturday .February 19th and 20th has repeatedly refused to let others sharo
hla  secret.
'It took many years of experimenting to solve this very difficult problem." says Chaney, "and because It Is
not patentable It will have to remain
a mystery as' long as I am on the
screen. Many other character actors
have tried to find a solution to the
problem of keeping his make-up fresh
under all conditions but others have
not been able to find anything that
would solve this question.
COURTENAY, Feb.  17—The body I

SATURDAY DANCES
PROVING POPULAR
—NEW ORCHESTRA
To a greater extent that) ever before, the dances held every Saturday
night in the Ilo-llo Dance- Hall are
proving their popularity and ability
to draw the crowds. The hall, as
everyone knows, has the best floor
in the district, and the new orchestra
now playing at these weekly dances
has raised the standard of music to
a level beyond comparison. Five
first class musicians make up this
orchestra and the music played is j
the very latest procurable. In spite
of a big counter attraction last week
the Ilo-llo Hall was comfortably j
filled with dancers and all expressed
their appreciation of the musicians
in no small wny.
The dance commences at 9:30 each

husband was believed to be clinging.
Falling to do so, she ran the distance
to Mr. Davis's house with nothing on
her feet, where she arlved III an exhausted condition. With the words
"Charlie's drowned" she collapsedd
and did not recover consciousness for
a considerable time. Fortunately
she was In the kind and capable care
of Mrs. Davis, who did everything pos
sible for the distressed woman. A
verdict of accidental death by drowning was returned and the jury composed of Messrs. J. H. Blalock foreman), Edward Lee. Andrew Robinson
Cecil Burns, Wm. Rockwell and Len.
Roberts, were of the opinion that a
row boat should be kept at such a
place, as lt appeared that a life could
have been saved If such a boat had
been available on this occasion. In
her evidence before thc coroner, Mrs.
Aubry said thnt she heard her husband's call for help, and running to
the waters edge could not sec her
husband as there was a log between
him and the shore. Taking off some
of her clothes, she commenced to go
into the water, but he had told her not
to do so but to go for help, whereupon she ran to Mr. Kdraund Davis's
place, a distance of two miles. Mr.
Davis mounted a horse and at once
left for the boom but nothing could
be seen of the loger hy the time tlle
horseman arrived. It was thought
that the deceased must have become
cramped, particularly as It is said he
had been wounded in both legs and
arms during his war service with the
102nd battalion. The remains were
Identified by Mr. Clifford Wilcox, by
means of a finger ring.

Hospital Urgently Needs Water;
Present Supply Inadequate
And Undependable
.. COURTENAY, Feb. 16—At the city
hall on Monday night when the preliminary council business had been
transacted the usual routine was set
aside for tlie purpose of hearing a
deputation from the St. Joseph's Hospital board of management. The
deputation consisted of Mr. Jas. Carthew, the hospital board's president
and one who has taken an active interest In the Institution for many
years and Mr. R, Filberg who also has
the welfare of St. Joseph's at heart.
They requested that the council con
aider the extension of the city water
system to St. Joseph's hospital at
Comox and io tlie town of Comox too.
Mr. Carthew explained the benefit of
the nursing institution to the citizens
of Courtenay anil the obligations they
wcre under to the hospital. Legislation which had recently been passed made tho city liable for every
patient admitted to the hospital from
within the (Ily limits to an amount of
seventy cents per day said the speaker. If this had been In force last
year it would have cost the city some
$7.10 which would represent the 1044
hospital days effecting the city he
said. Mr. Kilhcrg said the hospital
urgently needed the city water us the
present water supply was neither adequate nor dependable. The proposition he had to make was that the
hospital would Install and equip a
pipe line and leave It In first class con
dltlon, from the city limits to Comox.
Tho cost would probably be $6,000.
The pipe line to be paid for by the ser
vice of the water; but tbe hospital
authorities would be willing to finance the construction of the pipe
and would arrange a mortgage to do
so, If necessary. He thought a four
inch pipe, giving seventy-five to one
hundred gallons per minute would
supply tho needs of Comox for some
yenrs to come. He suggested that if
the water was taken to the dock and
tho hotel there would be ahout fifty
subscribers In Comox that should pay
offthe cost of installation in six or
seven years.   A wooden  pipe should

BUYING ON THE
INSTALLMENT PLAN
The other day we listened to a man who
was letting out an awful howl about the "vicious installment plan"
that has been sweeping the country. He predicted dire results for the future and prophesied
failure and disaster for the concerns that were
putting out goods on the deferred payment basis.
To hear this man talk you would think there
might be something of a menace in that present
popular way of doing business. But sober
thought, and faith in humanity may change one's
point of view.
There have not been lacking warnings from
many sources against the possible over-extension
- of credit by the installment plan.
There is estimated to be outstanding some
four billion dollars worth of part payment contracts for new houses, automobiles, musical instruments and other desirable possessions.
Investigation shows, however, that the plan
has resulted in higher standards of living for
the public and an increase in industrial production. Default of payments has so far been
negligible.
There is, of course, always danger of too
generous use of these credit facilities, but prosperity can be continued in this country only by
high wages and wide diffusion of buying ability,
which in turn keep production and employment
at the maximum.
The growth of the installment plan of paying
for things has, therefore, served both industry
and consumer, but the individual must not let
it run away with his prudence. A good rule
is to buy only that which you know you will be
able to pay.
the man of large affairs, was often pictured with
a big black cigar and we got to thinking that to
succeed you had to be puffling a cigar. Then
during the war everybody got to smoking cigarettes. Old gray-haired men that had always
looked upon cigarettes as kid stuff; began to puff
on the little cylinders, often held in long holders.
Those war days were cigarette days because
everybody was nervous and fidgety arid felt they
didn't have tithe for a cigar or a pipe. Then the
old-fashioned pipe smoking Wsis an object of
curiosity.
But the tide has turned and the old pipe has
come back into its own; The late President
Harding smoked a pipe in his study and on the
deck of the Mayflower, a habit formed no doubt
in the days when he was a country printer, for
printers always have and always Will smoke
pipes. Then came Premier Stanley Baldwin, inducted into office some years ago to succeed Mr.
Ramsay MacDonald, and with him came a great
glow of warmth for the long-neglected pipe
smokers. His first published picture showed;
him with a briar pipe, one doubtless of ancient
vintage, clenched between his teeth. ' And then
came Helen Mariar Dawes with a trick pipe that
could be smoked upside-down and thousands of
pictures of the Vice President were published
and the trick pipe was never missing. Pipe
smokers the world over began to perk up again
and Dawes you may remember, got a surprisingly large vote.
Well, there is something mighty comforting
about the old pipe in front of the blaring fire.
When the toil of day is ended and you've finished
the evening meal, a pipe of good tobacco is a
thing that's hard to beat. And as we said in
the beginning, the chap who smokes a pipe is
generally a whole-souled fellow.

WOMEN OF FORTY In Our reading the other
day we came across the
line: "She became that superfluous woman of
forty who never really amounts to anything."
What a scorching line that is! "The superfluous woman of forty."
Thank God there are not many of the species
in the small towns. Here the woman of forty
is generally a busy, happy mother and housewife. But in the cities these "superfluous women of forty" are found in droves. They crowd
the theatres at matinees, they put in four afternoons a week at iheir bridge clubs. They shop,
they gossip, they drink tea and they ride in automobile with wooly dogs.
"The superfluous woman of forty." God help
her, she's worse than a tramp.

SUN LIFE'S GREAT RECORD
New records have been made so
consistently of late years by the Sun
Lite Assurance Company of Canada,
tbat fresh ones almost cease to ore-
ate surprise. But the flfty-Ofth statement, submitted at the annual meeting of the shareholders on tho 9th
initant, is especially noteworthv because it shows that new levels o-**
business have been reached which
are epochal In their nature. Never
before has-a Canadian company attained thc billion dollar mark of
assurances in force. The only ocas-
ion when it bas been approached was
last year when tho success of the
Sun Life Company Itself forecast It?
possibility.
The report, now released, Indicates
that the year's business -has considerably exceeded that amount. The
actual business reported b..- President
T. B. Macaulay is $1,021,007,101—8
truly colossal amount. The Increase
over la-it year's high figures is almost
$150,000,000. Nearly 60,000 new policies were paid for, and after deducting amounts re-assured the amount
of new policies paid for was $193,
477,067. The new business for the
year was In excess of the total
amount carried by the Company
thirteen years ago.
For fifty years the Company has
actually doubled Its business ovcry
five years. This thrifty practice was
no mean achievement when the totals
ran into very much smaller figures
Thnt the doubling process has heen
continued qulnqucnnlnlly when totals
have climbed to such large amounts
Indicates the vigour and enterprise
with which the business of the Company Is being carried on.
The Increase In net Income over
last year was nearly $7,000,000, thc
total being $69,147,413.
Payments to policyholders and bene
notaries In respect of death claims,
matured endowments, profits, etc..
amount to $35,441,582. There ha*
been paid out under this head since
the Company was organized $219,239
710.
There has been corresponding
growth In assets, the increase for
tbe year being $28,925,738, bringing
the total value of Company assets to
$303,056,146.
In a recent speech at the B-ibsor.
business conference, A. Vere Shaw.
Investment counsel, of New York,
spoke of the Sun Life as being probably the best Investor among life
assurance companies on the American
continent. That estimate seems to
be justified by the excellent returns
shown In the report from the Sun
Life Company's Investment Department. At a time when Interest rates
show a tendency to decline, the Company has heen able not merely tn
continue but to Increase Its record
In this connection. The rate earner!
during the year on the mean invested
assets waa 6.41 per cent. A net profit
of $2,215,772 was realized on sales
of municipal debentures and other
securities wisely bought, and sold
when they had advanced to high
premiums.
The profits earned by the Companv
during the year, based on the increase
In the valuation of Its securities as
made by the government authorities
has been $21,666,284. From this
amount lt has been thought advisable
to deduct $3,000,000.
Increased profits to policyholders
are announced for the sixth consecutive time.
Profits have been paid or allotted
during the year to policyholders of
$7,662,784. After deducting this sum,
adding $2,500,000 to Contingency
Account, writing $750,000 off the book
value of Head Ofllce, branch buildings, and real estate, setting aside
$350,000 to further strengthen the
special reserve to provide for possible
greater longevity among annuitants,
and deducting accretions to Shareholders' Account, the Company has
been able to add $6,532,642 to undivided profits. This brings the total
surplus over all liabilities, Contln
gency accounts, and Capital up to
$28,640,000.
. It Is significant that on the day
that the Sun Life Company formally
opened Its fine completed head ofllce
building, President Macaulay announced that provision mut at once be
made for further enlargement. Already eleven hundred people are employed at the Head Ofllce. The International character of the Institution
which Is already operating In forty-
four countries and states, is further
emphasized In expansions now taking place ln a number of the larger
cities and principal states of the
American Union.
In Its strength, the scope of Its
activities, the rapidity ot Its growth,
and its vigour and prosperity, the
Sun Life Assurance Company now
ranks among the first financial Institutions of Canada.

""The Winter Garden of Canada should be the de-
* scriptive title of Victoria, B.C. Why seek southern climes when such attractions lit so close at hand 1
Clear skies, bracing sea air, green lawns and
■print blossoms, may all be found there, in mid January. Leaving the prairie grain fields, where next
spring's wheat nestles warm beneath a thick blanket
of snow, crossing the mountains whose passes are
topped by snow buried peaks, here spring In all its
wealth of verdure greets the traveller. There is a
charm about Victoria harbour, not shared by many.
For where landing places generally are unsightly, and
a distance from the beauties of the city, the docks of
Victoria are a part of its attractions. Very fine Is
the approach. The short way to the stately old
Empress hotel Is like the carriage drive to an English
castle. On the right are the green lawns fronting
Parliament buildings, perhaps the finest In Canada.
The rose garden that breaks the even green sward, is
•ved now giving a good account of itself, for numerous rosebuds reveal a pale beauty as if not quite sure
whither to burst at once into blossom.
A glimpse of many Victoria gardens at this sea-

son, reveals mora daring flowers. The yellow jasmins
is covered with bloom, violas stand out boldly In sunny
nooks, hyacinths and daffodils are heavy with buds,
.vhile nasturtium seeds have dared to germinate and
put out leaves as if in challenge to the Frost King.
A now and fascinating feature of the capital city
is th* Crystal gardens. Situated just beyond tha
Empress hotel, they leav* nothing to be desired in
the way of winter attractions. The glass roof covers
a swimming pool one hundred and fifty feet in length
with a graduated depth from three to ten feet. Tht
pool fills and drains constantly, sea water being
pumped in and kept at an agreeable temperature.
From the pool, rise tiers of seats on either tide; and
at the ends, on the main floor, are fine dance halls.
Along the aides, tea tables with wicker chairs placed
at tempting angles, afford agreeable resting places.
Here and there huge ferns and palms lend a tropical
air, while smaller plants border the walls. Climbing
vines grow in great profusion about the steel pillars
supporting tht roof. Developing rapidly In the warm
moist air, they run toward the glass roof and trail
their foliage over tht wattr. Tht wistaria essays tht
climb, but the prolific coba vine flourishes and trails
its trumpet like flowers from sbove vying in greenness with the waters of the pool. Canaries In gilded
cages voice tht comfort of the retreat. An occasional
Oriental umbrella adds still mort to tht summer-like
appearance of ths place-
In tht evening, witb lights and crowds and music,
with perhaps a water fete being staged lit tht pool,
no matter what blizzard sweeps tht plaint, hart summer reigns tupremtl

A bad nils-kick by Mortimer, Cumberland Unltcd's rghl full back, spell
disaster for the local team In the
first half of their game played Inst
Sunday against the fast-stepping

advantage of the big fellow's mls-
toke,  giving Orr no chance  lo  save
after Cumberland had practically
penned the Ladysmith eleven In their
own half. This happened twenty-
eight minutes from the start of the
game. The blue and whites made a
determined effort to equalize, but to
no avail, hull lime arriving with Hie
l.ailysinilh team leading by the lone
lully.
A  few  minutes  after tho start of*

pass from the wing nnd scored number two for his loam. Cumberland
then re-arraiigecl their team, changing Kitchens from outside left to Inside, bringing Fowler over from the
extreme right In center, and playing
Deluee on the wing vacated by Fowler. This made a great difference
and twenty minutes later Deluee
scored. The goal added pep to the
Cumberland play, but they could not
score. Several limes they were within nn nee of doing so, hut no breaks
came their way. and the game ended
Wth them one goal down.

been appointed assistant to the
steamship passenger traffic manager of the Canadian Pacific Steamships, according to recent advices at
the head offices of the company.
Canada's agricultural growth during the past quarter of a century is
■well illustrated by figures compiled by the Dominion Government,
which show that during the past
year field crops had an estimated
value of $946,166,000, as compared
with 1196,673,000 in 1900.
Production en Nova Scotia farms
In 1926 amounted to approximately
$40,420,000, as compared with $36,'
486,000 in the previous year. Items
making up this total were: Dairy,
♦10,200,000; livestock, $2,200,000;
field crops, $18,700,000; poultry product!, $1I£SM,000; fruits and vegetables, $8,000,000.
A railway car, originally built as
an observation car for the Canadian
Pacific Railway, was used as a
"chapelle ardente" and funeral coach
to transport the remains of the late
Queen Mother of Italy. This car
was used in hospital service during
the war and was sold, with others,
to the Italian State Railways after
the armistice.
Strange scenes are laid in the
Canadian west on account of hoarfrost and snow. The trees and
shrubs are covered with snow forming strange white animals in the
Kicking Horse Pus region. A number of photographs were taken recently in this neighborhood showing
grotesque and terrifying figures in
the form of prehistoric animals.
Her Excellency, Lady Byng, wife
of the Governor-General of Canada,

vivid description of the scenic beauties of the Canadian Pacific Rockies.
She advised Canadians to see
Canada first and get to know this
country and something of the lives
ef the people who live In its various
■arts.
Owing to the cheap hydro-electric
power available, the American Cellulose and Chemical Company is to
