FORTY-FIRST YEAR— NO. 25
CUMBERLAND, BRITISH COLUMBIA, SATURDAY, JUNE 24, 1922
SUBSCRIPTION PRICE:   TWO DOLLARS PER ANNUM.
Doings Of The
Board Of Trade
The Cumberland Board of Trade
held their regular monthly session
iu the council chambers on Tuesdav
evening, when members present were:
.Messrs MacDonald, MacKinnon, Gordon, Lymn, H. C. MncKlnuon, Kent,
Scott, Cooke, Graham, Harrison, Clin
ton, Davis, Stevens, Campbell and
Secretary Walton, with President
Sutherland In tho chair. After the
reading of the minutes, whicli wero
adopted as rend, the secretary read
tho following communication from
the British Columbia Telephone Telephone Company.
.   "Victoria, B.C.
May Uth, 1922.
'J. Walton, Esq.,
Secretary, Board of Trade,
Cumberland, B.C.
"Dear Sir—I beg to acknowledge
receipt of your letter of May 8th, regarding telephone service at Royston
"As you are probably aware, we
used to have a telephone exchange
at Union Bay and which we were
compelled to abandon and close up
a few years ago. After that a toll
station was Installed at Fraser and
Home's aud the Canadian Collieries'
which for a time answered the purpose Then a few others wanted service which could not be given on long
distance lines. We then made a canvas of the situation and it was decided to try and afford a larger service by connecting up with an existing exchange. We were able to do
this from Courtenay, the central office
to which the Union Bay people desired to be connected with. Having
brought Union Bay into the Courtenay exchange area naturally Includes
those at Royston being able to get
Courtenay exchange service. All
these subscribers pay tariff monthly
ratos for local service and when they
talk to Cumberland they pay the
Courtenay rate to Cumberland. In
the same way the Cumberland subscribers can now get Union Bay subscribers tor the Cumberland to Courtenay rate. There is no way possible
lo ufford free service befween two
exchange areas.
Yours truly,
F. C. PATERSON,
District Commercial Supt
Considerable discussion ensued and
the members were of the opinion that
Royston and Union Bay would rather
be connected with Cumberland In preference to Courtenay. It was finally
decided to canvas Union Bay subscribers to enable the B.C. Telephone
Company to establish a profitable exchange at Union Bay. The next communication was from Alan W. Neill,
M.P., as follows:
"Ottawa, June 5th, 1922.
"J. Walton, Esq.,
Secretary, Board ot Trade,
t       Cumberland, B.C.
"Dear Sir—1 am ln receipt of your
wire. I had already urged these
views upon the Minister of Justice,
pulnting out what I, saw would be tho
upshot, Ihat we would get the name
of having a second County Court
Judge, and Victoria would get the
whole use of him, and that I could
sec that that was what this loaning
business would end ln.
"1 saw Sir Lonior Gouln again yesterday, and he ensured ine that in
view of my objections, such arrangements would not be made. At the
Bame time ho Is of the opinion that
we do not greatly need a second
County Court Judge, and that the
present judge should come more frequently lo your town. Anyhow, if
Mr, Mackintosh iu appointed to Victoria, It will be as a Victoria County
Judge.
"The remedy Is to get tlle provincial government to cut the county of
Nanaimo into two counties.
Yours  faithfully,
ALAN W. NEILL.
After, the reading of the above several members addressed the chair ou
a resident county court judge and to
reside within the confines of the
county ,for which he 'was appointed.
P. P. Harrison, local barrister, gave
an address in detail, citing several
cases under the landlord and tenant
act, absconding debtors and giving
reasons why a comity court Judge
should reside within limits of the
Comox electoral district. It was said
that overtures should he made to tho
provincial government to divide the
county of Nanaimo Into counties, one
half to be known as the county of
Cumberland. The local board of trade
went on record with request that
the Intention of the act with reference to the residence of a county
court judge bo carried Into effect and
that the matter be dealt with at the

Notes
mm,
WEEK OF JUNE «
OANAM
• ataaaaaa*.
G.W.V.A. members and other returned men will have noticed in the
press that the chairman of the recent
parliamentary committee requested
ihe pension hoard to definitely state
their altitude toward pre-enllstment
of disability cases.
Tho contention ot our Dominion
command is, that the act, as It now
stands, presumes that a man reaching
Franco should be regarded as fit tor
ilio purposes of pension and that sec
Hon eleven of the pension'act la not
retroactive or governing clause three
of section  twenty-five  which  reads:
"No deductions shall be made trom
the pension of any member of the
force who has served ln the theatre
ot actual war on account of any disability or disabling condition, which
existed ln him previous to the time
at which he became a member of the
forces. Provided that no pension
shall be paid tor a disability or dis
ibling condition, which at such time
was wilfully concealed, was obvious
or was not of a nature to cause rejection from service."
As must be obvious to all who have
the welfare of ex-service men at
heart, any change of the Interpretation now will result ln wholesale
cancellation of pensions.
The dispute Is not ln regard to
rates, but an apparent attempt to
affect economy by the subterfuge outlined.
It Is Interesting and encouraging to
note that our Dominion president and
secretary, following disclosures surrounding the Parliamentary Inquiry,
openly charges the pension board
with contemptible and cold-blooded
conspiracy to deprive tncaplcated ex-
service men of the rights previously
granted  by  parliament
It seems that there has been deliberate concealment and secret regulations governing the pensions and
insurance, in direct vtotatlon ot the
intention of parliament and also an
attempt to disguise the facts before
presenting to the parliamentary committee.
We believe that our Dominion officers are able to prove all their
charges right up to the hilt.
The continual defiance ot the board
has prevented the Introduction of
satisfactory amendments and with
the committee hearing of the evidence
now closed, the fight Is being brought
to the floor ot the House.
This is going to be a real fight for
ex-service men and their dependents;
this issue is vital to all pensioners.
We need the sympathetic co-operation of all overseas men and friends
if we are to bring these efforts to a
successful conclusion.
The question of unemployment,
which is seriously affecting so many
of our comrades, is calling for special
efforts on the part of all service organizations to get some definite policy
irom the government.
(With this end in view the mayors
oi all the principal cities in the Dominion are asked to co-operate with
us, placing the responsibility on the
shoulders of the federal authorities,
vhere It undoubtedly belongs,
The weekly meeting will be held
as usual on Tuesday, June 27.
Will all members of the G.W.V.A.
and Ladles' Auxiliary who Intend to
Join the outing to Kye Bay, Sunday
next, June 25, kindly give their
names In to the secretary not later

conveyance to the picnic.

to be at the G.W.V.A. hall not later

which we live; and our regret at your
departure.

shoulder to shoulder, with the members of the staff, when perhaps your
Interests would have been better
served by not making common cause
with them, but by your loyalty you
have earned their esteem and gratitude.
"The efficiency and tact, which you
displayed in organizing the school
work, have commanded our respect
and admiration, while the originality
and practicability ot your ideas, both

Parent Teachers Association, have|
made you an enviable member ofj
these societies, and a distinct asset
to the community.

that we are losing a friend and a
champion as well as a principal.

Double Feature
Bill at Ilo-llo
A splendid double feature program
Is being Bhown at the ilo-llo theatre
on Friday and Saturday, two feature",
the 'serial and a comedy comprising
the attraction.
"Dues she dance, does she twist,
does she do those little things you
can't resist? I'll say she does!" You
would think that old popular air was
inspired by tho heroine of "The Dan
gerous Little Demon," the Universal
Special Attraction at the Ilo-llo on
Friday and Saturday. For the "demon" Is a most fascinating creature as
portrayed by the star, Mario Provost,
and the way she does things, causes
panic in the hearts of all masculine
bystanders. Dancing divinely aud
somewhat shockingly, she causes
even the most blase of her suitors to
feel a thrill. In fact, he gets such a
kick out of It, he calls her down!

PENNED BY "LIFER"
When Louis Victor Eytlnge, scion
of a good family, walked Into the
Arizona state penitentiary to begin
serving a life sentence, he could
hardly walk. Ho had a deep, wracking cough, emaciated frame aud all
tbe other symptoms of tuberculosis
ln its final stages.
"Not over a month," said the prison
physician. "He may not last that
long."
But he has lived; he has served
fourteen years of tbat life sentence,
breaking the monotony of a bleak
life by studying and writing. His first
real literary achievement to be put
into picture form is to be shown on
the screen of the Ilo-llo theatre
Friday and -Saturday as a Universal

Cumberland A Quarter
Of A Century Ago
(Extract from Cumberland News
May 24, 1899.)
It is not generally known outside
the place Itself where Cumberland
and Union are, or what they are. Before 1894 the only name applied to
the mining town of the Union Colliorv
what is only a prospect requires
much capital. The small company ot
the Union band made known to the
late Hon. Robert Dunsmuir their undeveloped discovery, and proceeded
to negotiate a sale to him of their
property.    But It was only in 1883
Co., was Union. In 1894 the U. C. Co.' that that gentleman In company with
laid out a townslte adjacent to the other financiers purchased the pros
"Camp," and called   it Cumberland., Pect.   Then the Union Colliery Corn-
In 1897 Cumberland became incorporated as a city. The City of Cumberland and the contiguous town of
Union have a population of 3,000.
Their location is Inland ln the valley
of the Beauford Mountains four miles
from Comox Bay, and eleven miles
from Bayne Sound, There are In the
two places, Presbyterian, Methodist,
Catholic, and Chuch of England
Churches. The hotels, of which there
are five, are large and commodious.
In the two twin cities, as they may
be termed are the Masonic, Odd Fellows, Knights of Pythias, Independent
Order of Foresters, L.O.L., W.O.W.,
and Druids. The American Consul
Agent is Mr. Geo. Wilt Clinton, who
Is also the popular paymaster of the
Union Colliery Company.
The history of Union may be said
to date from 1869. In that period the
government of the day, to Induce
prospecting for minerals and to de
velop the resources ot Vancouver Is
land, gave to any   individual   who

A. Fletcher, of Vancouver, representing the Geo. A. Fletcher Music Co. of
Victoria and Vancouver, were visitors

dred acres of coal land. The geological formation near Comox showed
well defined coal measures. Eleven
persons with packs on their backs
started out In 1869 to search tor coal
In the vicinity of what Is now called
Cumberland and more often Union
These persons styled themselves the
Union Company. After much, hard
ship and prospecting the small com
pany of practical miners discovered
what they considered merely a good
prospect. It became necessary to
work this prospect and among other
things done for that purpose the
Union company constructed what Is
now known as the Roy Road leading
trom Cumberland to Port Augusta or
Comox Bay,
The development of a coal mine or
pany ot British Columbia, Limited
was incorporated and immediately
proceeded under the superintendence
of Mr. Frank Little to list the value
of the coal deposit, No. 1 and No.
tunnel slopes wero driven aud the
Douglas seam of coal was discovered.
Since then No. 3 slope was opened.
Nos. 1, 2 and 3 slopes have been
worked out. The mines working today are No. 4, the lake slope, and No.
0 shaft. No. 4 is one of the largost
coal mines on tho Pacific coast. It
has been In operation for eight years
and- no doubt remains that It will
continue In operation for 20 years
hence.
Cumberland is the market town of
extensive and fertile Coniox district,
one of the most beautiful and richost
farming valleys In the whole province.
For grandeur of scenery, It Is doubtful If Comox Valley is rivalled by any
part of British Columbia. Forest
lakes, and streams abound In game
and fish ot all kinds, and this Is a
Observations Of A
Federal Member
June 5th. Mr. Crerar moved an
amendment to lhe Conservative
amendment to the budget, to the ef
foot that tiie budget was not tree
trade enough.
June Uth. The speaker decided
that this amendment was out of or
der. Appeal taken to House and was
lost by majority of 1.7. Neill missed
Ihe vote, being down town hunting
up a department.
Continuous debate ou budget. Fin
unce minster unrounccd some
changes. Increased duty on cigarettes reduced 50 per cent, on expensive motor cars reduced, on hank
cheques stamp taken off the larger
amounts. Duty on German goods Increased. New tax of two cents pill
ou all receipts above $10.00, vote
laken at one a.m. Conservative
amendment defeated by large majority. Main budget motion curried by
majority of 18, seven Progressives
from Ontario, two Progressives from
B.C., and the Independent voted with
the Government.
Result of vote pleased every member. Government pleased because of
a fair majority. Conservatives and
Progressives' tickled because -they
were more scared of a Government
defeat than the Government were,
because a Government defeat would
have meant a general election and
the loss of a good many seats belong
Ing to both Conservatives and Progressives. * Cheap politics to yell and
voto against the Government and
pray that some one else would prevent your vote from defeating the
Government.

SATURDAY. JUNE 24, 1922
The Left Eye-Tooth
" Confound the old blighter! Whai
on earth am I to do?" ileggie Par-
glter read for the second time the
letter which was causing him considerable annoyance. It ran thus:
New Rand Club,
Johannesburg, S.A
June 1st
"My Dear Boy,
I am contemplating a trip to England, but can only remain there a
week, as I must spend the hulk of my
three months In Europe with' my
brother ln Edinburgh. Mureover, 1
Ette London cordially. In fact, I
should probably cut out London altogether were It not that I have set my
heart on seeing you and your wife
It la over ten years since 1 last saw
Malsle, and 1 expect she has grown
Into a fine young woman. Give her
my best love. I will wind up now,
as I want this to catch the mall.
Hoping to And you both very fit,
"Yours affectionately,
"Horace Parglter."
"P.S.—Perhaps 1 shall find a Parglter Junior. You are such a very
poor correspondent that 1 don't seem
to know anything at all about you
and your menage.—H. P."
"Precisely," murmured Reggie, as
he read the postscript again. "And
that's Just how 1 want you to remain,
you Billy old Idiot."
Parglter was In a very decided kind
of hole. He had considerable expectations trom the rich Uncle Horace, who
like meet uncles of fiction was a very
obstinate and pig-headed person.
Years ago, the old gentleman had declared that Reggie must marry Malsle
Harding, the daughter of one of his
oldest friends. The chief objection to
the marriage lay In the fact that Reggie cordially disliked Malsle and the
feeling was reciprocated. However,
on a certain occasion when he was
touching his relative for a pretty big
at lunt, he was foolish enough to In-
lorm the old gentleman that he had
been duly married to the young
woman. Moreover, he went to the
length of enclosing   some   fictitious
redding-cake. By next mail, there
irrlved the cheque and a*handsome
'I'acelet for the bride. Reggie had
'0 difficulty in disposing of the brace-
el in tad, it did him quite a lot of
:nod with a young person whom he
as in the habit of taking out to dln-
ler when funds permitted.
Hut what was to be done? He would
io bound to Invito hie uncle to the
lat, and how was he to account for
he non-existence of a wife? If he
invented a story to the effect that she
had passed away, the old boy would
nslst on sending absurdly pathetic
letters of condolence to her relatives.
If he said that she was in the country,
l.'iuie II. would at once want to take
the first train to the place where the
girl was supposed to have gone.
Utterly disgusted, and realising
that If the fraud were discovered, his
expectations would very promptly be
converted Into dust-and-ashes, the
young man went down to his club to
jcek the counsel ot the sagacious Vln-
nlcomhe. Vlnnlcombe was one of
those men who make a precarious
living hy helping acquaintances out
of difficulties and ending their counsel with a question as to whether they
tiappen to have a liver on them.
He found Vlnnlcombe In his usual
place by the smoke-room grate. He
plunged Into the bother without any
kind of prelude. When he had finished
the oracle asked for a cigarette,
lighted It and then smiled.
"Tt's a bit of a poser," he said. "But
I think I can see a way out."
" Good man!"
"You must have an understudy.
Yon must get hold of a girl, who, for
u consideration, will bo willing to
pose as your wife when the old boy
turns up. Yes, I know what you'rs
going to say. That It sounds like an
old-fashioned French farce. What if
It does? The scheme Is qulto workable, aud you won't have to submit it
to the Censor."
The face of Parglter brightened Immediately.
"By jove!   It's a notion," he mur-

mured. "But how on earth am I going
to And a girl who resembles the one
I'm supposed to be married to?"
'I'll tell you. Go to Bedford Street
and see Be vis, the theatrical agent
Johnnie. He gets swarms of girls at
his offices every day looktng for work.
it's ten years, you tell me, since your
ancle saw this Malsle. Girls change a
bit in ten years, you know. Providing you can hit upon a young woman
who bears anything like a resemblance ln face and figure, the thing
ought to be easy. Of course, you would
have to coach her ln the part, but It
you Impress upon her to keep her
pretty little mouth shut and say as
little as possible, the thing ought to
pan out quite decently."
Parglter pondered the extraordinary proposal for three minutes, Then
he sprang up joyously.
"Splendid!" he exclaimed. "Thanks
awfully, old chap."
"Not a bit!" replied Vlnnlcombe,
modestly. "Er—-you haven't a fiver
on you, which you could spare till
Saturday, 1 suppose?"
The fiver was quickly produced and
handed over, though Parglter knew
quite well that the "Saturday" of Vlnnlcombe corresponded to the Greek
Kalends.
Ten minutes later, the young man
was climbing the three flights ot
stairs that led to the theatrical agency. Agents ot this kind always live
rather high up. Sometimes, they endeavor to restore the balance of
things by being particularly "low-
down"  themselves.
He found the outer room packed
with weird-looking men wearing highly colored clothes and aggressive
spats. The girls were all more or
iess attractive. Several ot them
smiled on him as he entered, believing perhaps that he was a potential
amployer.
Vlnnlcombe sent in his card, pencilling the words, "Want to engage a
lady for a special purpose." A moment later, he was in the agent's private office.
Mr. Bevls, a very business-like gen-
rleman, did not seem at all surprised
,jy the request. He merely asked If
his client could supply him with a
photograph.
"Otherwise, I'm afraid It won't be
easy to fit you," he said.
"I'll post you one this afternoon,"
replied Parglter promptly. "But the
question is, do you think there would
be any difficulty about getting a girl
to play the part?"
"That's their business," replied Mr.
Bcvis promptly. "In this profession,
you can get anything you want from
a performing flea to a temporary
wife."
He laughed gaily, anticipating much
profit from hia client. Nor was he
disappointed, for when he named cer
tain rather exorbitant terms, Pargiter
closed with the bargain on the spot.
The portrait was duly posted. Two
mornings later, he received a note
asking him to call at 2.30 that day.
Peeling unusually excited, Pargiter
drove to the olBce. When he was
ushered into Bevls's room, he could
not repress a cry of amazement. For
the girl who was seated ln the little
room, chatting with the agent, was so
like Maisle that for one moment he
almost believed that the long arm of
coincidence had caused Malsle to go
on the stage, and thus find her way
to tills spot.
"Let me Introduce you to Miss
Pansy Blake," said Bevls with a grin
"This is Mr. Pargiter, my dear! I've
told the young lady what Is wanted,
sir, and she will be quite willing to
do the needful,"
The girl giggled.
"Do you think I shall look the
part?" she Inquired. The Instant she
spoke, Parglter was delighted to perceive that allowing for a difference in
modulation, her voice was not ot all
unlike the voice ot the genuine Malale.
This was a veritable piece of luck,
though he reflected that, after all,
people with similar faces frequently
possessed similar vocal organs.
"I think you'll be absolutely perfect," he Bald, as he held out his hand
and felt her cool, slim fingers close
within his palm. "And It will be quite
eaay for you. My uncle la e
going and Inclined to take everything
for granted. Moreover, you won't
have to sustain the part for long. He
will dine with us once or twice, but
not more, for he Is only staying In
London for a week. He then goes to
Scotland, and after that returns to
Africa."
"I sec," replied the young woman
brightly. "Of course, you'll behave
like a gentleman, won't you? But I
tan seo that."
"I'll Guarantee him," observed Mr.
Bevls, with a solemn wink. "And now,
perhaps, we'd better arrange about
terms."

Four weeks later Reginald Parglter

to be at the flat for the purposes of
an Informal "rehearsal" when the
note arrived.
"I'd better Invite him for tomorrow
night and get it over," said Reggie,
as lie showed her the note. They were
sitting side by side on a particularly
comfortable sofa.
"Yes, dear, I think so." She sighed.
"Fancy me calling you dear. But
there's nothing like getting used to
a part before one opens in it."
"That's what I think," replied Reggie. He then bestowed upon her an
embrace which may or may not have
been part of the rehearsal. A moment
later he was at the 'phone and was
ringing up the hotel.
After the usual Interval, he heard
Uncle Horace's voice at the end of
lhe wire.
"That you, uncle? Thanks awfully
for the note. Yes. Delighted to sed
you any time! Come round tomorrow

will? That's good! Had a nice trip?

Malsle? Oh, In the pink. But you'll
see her for yourself. All right, then.
Tomorrow night!    Good-bye!"
"I'm glad you said 'in the pink,'"
cooed Maisle, as he banged down the
receiver and returned to the sofa.
"Because, I'd thought of wearing my
pink Bilk dinner frock for your
uncle's visit, but couldn't make up my
mind!   Now you've decided for me."
"Pink's my unlucky color," he said.
"Well, I shall be wearing It—not
you, so don't worry!" She laughed
dellclously.
"Better have Just one more rehearsal," he said, as his arm suddenly
found its way round her yielding
waist. "And whether pink is going
to be unlucky or not, I expect you'll
look divine ln It. But so you would

nothing!" Really, he was growing
quite fond of her.

The Vicar walked ln and exclaimed:
"John, you should not whistle in

whistle a hymn tune," said the Vicar.
"Very well, sir," replied John, and
commenced whistling 'The Old Hundredth,' very slowly, his brush keeping time. The Vicar hastily went up

Cumberland '-', Union liny 1
The local hoys visited the Bay
Sunday morning last and came home
with another victory after winning
tho tightest hall game yet played in
the league. This Is the locals' fifth
consecutive victory, three of which
have been league games. Sunday's
game was a pretty pitchers' duel between    Hunden   and    Daugerlleld—a
light which lias been anticipated for
some time. Hunden appeared to have
the better of the argument, funning
14 men against Dangorflcld's 9. Hun-
den. allowed hut three safe hits and
Dangerfield live. Good support was
accorded both pitchers, each team
bungling two chances. On the whole
the teams put up an excellent exhibition of baseball and deserve good
support from the local fans.
Cumberland secured both runs by
good base running. In the Ilrst Inning, with two men out, Dave Richards
singled, stole second, then third and
was driven home by Farmer's two-
bagger, the only extra base hit of
lhe gome. They secured the other
tally In lhe fifth stanza. One man
was out when McLean singled and
duplicated Richards' feat by stealing
both second and third base, and came
home on a wild pitch, Incidentally,
It. IJeunle also reached the third sack
in much the same manner, drawing a
base on balls and stealing second und
starting for home on Robertson's
slow grounder to the second baseman

and was caught out at the plate.
The clam-diggers scored their lone
run In the sixth inning by giving two
bases on balls. Percy Renwlck's
hard smash down the third base line
to Cotton Miller scored Geary. Cotton did well to stop Renwlck's drive
with a man on second and third base,
which would have meant two certain
runs. Things looked bright tor the
Bay again ln the last Inning with
Johnson on third base and only one
man out, but Hunden fanned the next
and assisted in putting the last man
out on an easy scratch hit. Renwick
tried to steal home ln the fourth
Inning which also added to the thrills
of the game.

CONNAUGHT CUP GAMES
Nanaimo defeated South Wellington
on Saturday last by the score ot 4-0,
and qualified to enter the final round
In the provincial elimination series of
the Connaught Cup competition. The
game was played at South Wellington
in ideal weather and before a very
large attendance of spectators.
South Wellington kicked off and for
a time looked like they would give
their opponents a hard fight, But
Nanaimo got going and gave the homo
defence a busy time. Although Nanaimo had the best of the play their
forwards were unable to score and
half-time found the score sheet blank.
On the resumption of play Nanaimo
at once made tracks (or South Wei
lington's goal and within a few
minutes Fowler opened the scoring.
The same player added number two
soon after.
South Wellington tried hard to
overcome this reverse, but It was of
no avull. The third goal was scored
hy a South Wellington defender
through some misunderstanding.
Nanaimo kept up tho pressure aud
near the close of play Fowler scored
a fourth goal.
At Athletic Park. Vancouver,
Saturday last, the Ladysmith team
were knocked out of the Connaughl
Cup series by losing to tho I. L. A.
team of that city by the score of two
goals to one. The winners meet
Nanaimo In the final to decide who
will travel Bast in quest of the Dominion  honors.
The Longshoremen scared both
their goals soon sfter the start of
play, Orelg and Lang registering.
Ladysmlth attacked strongly several
times during the first period,' hut the
all-stars held them off until the
whistle went.
In the second half the iHlond team
made many fine attempts to score
and after fifteen minutes play Battle
scored their only goal, giving the
Vancouver goalie no chance with a
hard shot. Ladysmlth tried hard to
equalize, but the game ended with
the score 2-1 In favor of I. L. A.

THE CAMP SIDEWALK
A few years ago when Robert
Grant was our provincial representative he secured an appropriation for
the building of a four-foot plank sidewalk from the western limits of the
City of Cumberland and ou through
West Cumberland, which was verj
much appreciated by the residents )l
that vicinity.
During the past week we have
heard several complaints as to the
coalition of the sidewalk In question.
in leveral places two or three planks
•ra broken and torn out ln othei
places, planks are loose and without
any nails.
In fact, the sidewalk lo in a very
dangerous condition and in need oi
repair. A lady resident of that vicinity, a few days ago had the misfortune to sprain her ankle when walking over this dangerous sidewalk and
has been confined to her bed ever
since.
The district road suporintendenl
Would confer a favor upon the resi-
dtnts by Inspecting the sidewalk from
Cumberland to the lower end ol' what
li commonly known as Camp.
A MOTHER'S GRIEF
Because her only son died, a widowed mother gave herself up to a
itlflsh grief, became a recluse and
. after several years was found dead
ln her self-assigned prison one
beautiful June morning. In the base
ment of her once spacious and beautiful borne, this woman died 'mid the
squalor of seven years of excessive
Indulgence ln grief, during which
time lhe refused to see friends,
neighbors or relatives. She had Inflicted upon her , self the bodily discomfort of dirt, and lhe torture of
starvation by the slow process of Ju.it
enough bread and milk to keep her
poor, shriveled aould In her frail
body. Insane, you say? At the end,
yes; but at the beginning, just a victim of her selfish Indulgence ot griel.
Her miserable end revealed her pitiable lack of faith. Deaf to the weary
world'! cry for help, blind to the
needs of her neighbors, indifferent to
and the anguish of other people's
hurts, this woman nursed a selfish
grief—while all about her was the
means to help—help materially, generously, with money. If not by personal aid—for this woman was wealthy.
The doora wero broken down and
the authorities took charge. She wa.-
burled, unwept, unhonored and unsung. The distant relatives divided
her property and the old world moved
on. This pitiful tale is true because
the broken-hearted mother, left alone
through the death of her idolized
son, did not know that the only cure
for grief Is action, that grief Is the
agony of the instant, and thon should
come the chastening influence of fortitude, finding solace ln forgetting
self ln service to others less fortunate or more heavily burdened.
The poor mother's excessive griel
created a speoles of Idleness. An Idle
life Is a useless life and a useless life
Is a wasted life —a crime against Uod
and man.
WHAT'S THE HURRY?
Did you ever sit In the window ol
the top story of a big city hotel and
look down at your fellow mortals
drilling like ants In the street below'
Fascinating to watch the hurrying
throng on the crowded city street
lBn't It? See them as they are swepi
along—calloused hands und corn-sore
feet, there goes grandeur with IU
wise grimace and there goes poverty
with Its fawning face. Rushing
gushing, speeding, spending, payiiu
and playing. Over there on one corner Is a little band of people that nre
actually praying.
Watch the stream of humanity at
it ebbs and flows In the street below
That bobbing sea of hats resembles
a mob mad with the desire to got
somewhere. They are sacrificing
health for the satisfaction of soim
unquenchable desire. Others are forfeiting friends for money. Sonic an
.heating, others beating, and tin
morning paper will tell you of Bomi
man that was murdered for money.
And as you sit there, perched lilgl
on tbe hotel window sill and watch
tbe mad scramble  below, tho scene
inspires another picture that fits
everyone on the street—fits you and
tits me—hits you and hits me.
Some day they will take you away,
forever, Some day they will cart
your ocold clay to a quiet nook, some
'uuely spot where arches green form
x silken roof; and there, under the
.veiling stars that shine, mourned by
the voice of a lonely pine, you'll rest.
And the thought that comes to you
is this: do you want more wealth, or
is health the most important thing?
Ask the millionaire who has Just
heard the doctor declare that he is
raftering from an incurable disease,
lie will tell you quickly to take all
Ills money and give him back his
health. He will offer to change
placeB with the man who sweeps the
treets.
Did you ever stop to think that
Saint Peter will not cash certified
check!. Do you realize that the tin
cod of money Is no kin to the great
Qod of Mercy? Do you realize that
;jrave worms are no respectors of the
rich?
Then, what's your hurry.

STRIKE AT IT ANYHOW
A fellow got us going the other
night when he asked us point blank
"What is your purpose in life?" Say,
hoy, did you ever turn out the light
after you had gone to bed, and lie
there in the dark In an honest effort
to answer that question? Try II.
There must be something you are
trying to do, but do you think of this
something often enough? No man can
get anywhere without a fixed purpose.
No man can have dependable energy
and achieve success until he has the
power of purpose. We all have this
Uod-given power of purpose, but do
we think of It often enough? The
haphazard human seldom thinks ot
It. He is on his way. He drifts in a
happy-go-lucky way direction. He Is
In line with progress, hut takes a leap
in the dark. He Is a random shot and
a blind speculation. He is simply
ihat and nothing more.
Life today offers unlimited opportunities for some special effort—un
measured possibilities for tho man or
woman of purpose. Frequently think
ing of n definite purpose gives you n
jew interest In life—a new impulse,
i new intent, Thinking of what you
ivant to do adds to your power to do
t. Unless you have a prearranged
plan, you are quite sure lo make a
fizzle. Many a good hitter Is called
nit on strikes while wailing for a
i>ase tin bulls.
This Is our little address to the
loy's and girls who arc graduating all
ivcr the country at this time. Some
folks win on n fluke, but the great
najority do not. Have a definite
purpose In life anil think about It
Iften. When It looks like a fair ball,
dtini at II. Hotter strike nut trying
to hit something than to stand like a
itg stilt waiting for a base on balls.

The New "Laconia"
A sister ship to the "Seythia" and
the "Samaria," the new "Laconia,"
now on her way to New York, is the
third of tho Cunard Line's one-tunneled wonder ships to enter the North
Atlantic service.
A radio received at the olllce of the
Cunard Line says that tho ship Is
proceeding slowly no as to get her
new machinery Into perfect order,
hut that otherwise she Is fully up to
expectations.
The "Laconia" Is typical of the
great new licet of big one- tunneled
Cunarders and at the same time ol
the latest developments of marine
engineering. She represents what Is
practically a new type of liner—a
ship that Is at once luxurious and
highly elllclent, and the outward sign
of this Is the one big raking funnel.
Rouble-Reduction    Gearing
Much hns been written lately about
this latest type of propelling machinery und of lhe great economy of the
Installations compared with pre-war
ships. This economy, and Its effect
on the general arrangement of the
vessel, Is more remnrkahlc than Is,
perhaps, generally supposed. With
high speed turbines, driving the propellers through double - reduction
gearing, which is tlio latest typo of
machinery, one horse power can be
obtained from about ten pounds of
superheated steam, whereas, with the
old type of reciprocating engines, it
takes about fifteen pounds of saturated steam to give one horse-power.
From those Ilgures It la evident that,
for a given power, less steam will be
required using the former type of
engines than with the latter. That
means a smaller number of boilers,
and consequently the number of tunnels can also bo reduced. The dimensions of the  "Laconia"  follow:
Length over all, 023 feet 9 Inches.
Length between perpendiculars, 000
feet.
Breadth moulded, 73 feet 0 Inches.
Depth moulded to shelter deck, 45
feet.
Gross tonnage, 20,000.
Sea speed, It) .knots.
Accommodation for nearly 2,000
passengers, made up of 1130 llrst-class,
340 secoml-ch.ss nnd 1,504 third-
class.
Passenger   Accommodation
The public rooms include:
First class—Dining room, lounge,
smoking room, drawing and writing
room, garden lounge.
Second class—Dining room, drawing room, smoking room, verandah
cafe.
Third class—Dining rooms, general
room, smoking room.
The extensive passenger accommodation of the "Laconia" extends over
seven decks. The Interior of tho "Laconia" Is that of a new Cunard lloal-
ing hotel, ond her exterior that ot a
staunch and steady ocean liner—a
worthy successor to a long line of
vesRels whose names have been
world-famous.
Knglnes und Auxiliaries
Bach of her two sets of turbines
consists of one high pressure and one
Intermediate pressure turbine driving In tandem, one pinion and one
low pressure turblno driving the
other pinion of Ihe first reduction
gearing and thence through the second reduction gearing to the main
shuft. Compound astern turbines are
Incorporated In the exhaust casings
of the Intermediate and low pressure
ahead turbines. The high pressure
turbines nre supplied with superheated steam and Hie low pressure
turbine exhausts to Ihe main condensers, which are suspended directly
below the turbines and are designed
for a high vacuum. Tbe turbine must,
of course, revolve at a comparatively
high speed In order to operate most
economically, while the rate of revolution of the propeller should be considerably less. This result Is achieved
by the double-reduction  gearing.
The turbines develop 13,500 s.h.p.,
the two shafts driving the ship at 10
knots.
Remarkable Gyroscopic Compasses
A wireless equipment of great power is installed. Gyroscopic compasses
are provided for navigating the ship
as well as patent standard compasses.
The Gyro Is a remarkable invention.
While the master compass is lixed on
one of tho decks below, there nre
three separate controlled compasses
on the bridge. Its great advantage
Is that, unlike other compasses. It Is
Independent of magnetic North and
requires no adjustment.

ODDS AND ENDS
Modern science has succeeded in
stamping out more than one fell dis
esse. Typhus has practically disappeared ln Western Europe; smallpox
haB become very rare; typhoid is be
coming rarer; and death from consumption are far fewer than they used
to be. On the other hand, cancer and
pneumonia are killing more victims
than ever.
Raspberries
At this season of the year con
tlnuous cultivation of the raspberry
plantation should be practised, at
least, up until the time the ripe fruit
Is hanging on the canes.
During this season of the year some
attention will need to be paid to Insect control. Occasionally the raspberry sawfly will cause considerable
damage to the foliage and when
noticed can be controlled by the use
of arsenical sprays, such as arsenate
of lead or arsenate of lime, used at
the rate of two pounds of the powdered form to forty gallons of water,
and sprayed on the bushes. A couple
of thorough sprayings will generally
suffice to control this pest
Every year there are numerous requests from growers, asking why the
tips of their young canes are wilting.
Upon close examination It will be
seen that the cane has been girdled
at the point where It bos commenced
to wilt This is the work of the raspberry cane borer and when this wilting is first noticeable is the time to
Institute control. Cut well below the
wilted portion and destroy the cut
portion. If these are not removed the
young larvae, hatching from the eggs
laid ln tbe girdle, will work down
the cane and practically destroy it,
As soon as the fruiting season is
over remove the old canes by cutting
them off close to the ground, and destroy them. This gives the new
canes a better chance and assists in
insect and pest control.
According to Dr. David Forsyth, a
marriage Is almost certain to be a
failure unless at least one of the parties possesses parental fixation. "Parental fixation" is the love which a
person sometimes retains through life
for his parents. As our capacity for
love is always the same, a man who
Is head over heels in love with one
woman cannot ' care anything for
another woman. He can he half ln
love with two women and a sixth ln
love with six women, but he can be
wholly in love with one only."
It is reference to "marvels In miniature," the Morning Post draws attention to the extraordinary achieve
ments, some twenty years ago ot a
Black Country pattern maker. Among
the feats achieved by him were the
making of a wheelbarrow, a hand
cart, and a coal cart, all perfectly
formed and all capable of passing
down the stem of an ordinary clay
pipe.
The telephone at your elbow seems so simple
an instrument, it does its work so quietly and
quickly, that it is difficult to realize the vast
and complex equipment, the delicate and manifold adjustments, the ceaseless human care in
the central office.
It is the skill behind the scenes, together with scientific
development and construction, efficient maintenance and
operation, which make it possible for you to rely upon the
telephone day and night. \

Strawberries
With the strawberry season fall
upon him it is a good time now for
the grower to note the adaptation of
the variety or varieties he is growing
to his conditions. Due consideration
must be given to (1) yield, (2) siie
of fruit, (3) shipping ability, (4)
quality and (5) any special feature.
To select a variety solely on the
merits of its yielding ability is poor
practise. It must be a good shipper,
palatable, of good site and It it can,
In addition, be recommended to the
consumer as an exceptionally good
canning berry, so much the better.
The consumption of strawberries
can be largely increased it growers
will carefully select their varieties
and give to the consuming public that
which they require. The grower
catering to a local market could overlook shipping ability somewhat and
stress quality or size, or preferably
both. For instance, Senator Dunlap
is one of our best quality berries, but
not a very good shipper for distant
markets, whereas Glen Mary Is a
better shipper, but perhaps not quite
so high In quality, although good
enough ln that respect. Portia, a new
introduction of the Horticultural
Division, Experimental Farm, has the
serious fault of being Imperfect In
sex, but Is an excellent shipper, high
ln quality and the best of canners,
an excellent example of a berry suitable for the grower who can cater to
a discriminating market, where the
consumers appreciate a berry combining table and canning qualities.
Not only do varieties differ in these
respects, but also in their adaptability
to colls and localities. On heavy land
in a comparatively moist, cool climate
the Senator Dunlap will do much
better than on light soils in a hot and
dry locality. In the latter case Parson iinauty or Pocomoke give bettor
results, so that the successful grower
must ever be on tbe lookout for newer sorts, which might possibly lit In
to his market requirements or his
soli requirements Just a little better
than the kinds he is growing.
Junior Baseball
In Courtenay
Junior baseball ln this district was
given an auspicious start for the
present season last Sunday morning,
when the Courtenay Juniors Invaded
Union Bay and returned with the
.scalps of the youngsters of the Bay
team. The score ot four to one tells
the story of the game and will give
supporters of the diamond pastime
an idea of what they may expect ot
i thoroughly local senior team a
jouple of years hence. The game was
.iard fought throughout as the summary will show, the runs scored by
he visitors coming one at a time and
all being earned. For Courtenay the
oattery work of Johnny Lowden,
pitching, and Frank Stephens, catching, was all that could be desired,
while tbe batting of Hlcklngbottom
classes him as a Junior Babe Ruth.
Other features of the game from a
local standpoint was the fielding of
Beard, who made a beautiful catch
In right Held, and J. Potter and Davis.
The other members of the team
played - bang-up baseball and came
through with only three errors while
the home team registered seven mistakes.
Naturally Manager Haggarty is
pleased at the result of the first game
in which his colts took part and he
promises a string of victories for the
season. Evening games will probably
be arranged with other district
juniors and it Is safe to say that they
will attract a good following of
seniors interested In the present welfare of the juniors, and the keeping
Intact of i team of efficient homebrew for the senior line-up. The
Courtenay Junior team was made up
of the following players: J. Lowden,
p; F. Stephens, c; L. Winters, lb;
W. Hlcklngbottom, 2b; J. Piercy, 3b;
Q. Lelghton, ss; C. Beard.r.f; J. Potter, cf; W. Davis, If.
Courtenay—Errors 3; base bits 8;
struck out by Lowden 9.
Union Bay—Errors 7; base bits 6;
struck out 6.
Time of game, one hour and thirty-
live minutes.

Q.—Is there any service open to the
ordinary citizen by which he can pro
mote forest conservation?
A.—By all the means the foremost
service that the ordinary citizen can
do for the forests of Canada Is to prevent forest fires. As compared with
our annual forest Are damage any
conceivable governmental effort at
restoration by tree planting appears
trivial. For example, one forest fire
this year started by a cigarette carelessly thrown away destroyed 25
million feet of pine in one district.
We are destroying our forests at least
tour times as fast as Nature at best
can restore them, and If we Include
forest fire damage we are probably
killing off our forests each year ten
or fifteen times faster than the natural regrowth. As a matter ot saving
our industries and retaining our
forest inheritance, the business of
forest Are prevention outranks every
other public concern,
Q.—How do the forest resources of
Canada compare with those ot other
parts of the British Empire?
A.—Canada Is the only part of the
British Empire containing a really
large stock of coniferous timber.
This classification refers to such
woods as pine, spruce, fir, hemlock
etc, of the cone-besrlng trees,—Australia, New Zealand and South Africa
are wood importing countries. The
British Isles themselves contain a
smaller proportion of timber growing
lend than any other part of Europe
except Portugal. The pine, spruce
and fir forests of this Dominion,
therefore, represent the only reliable
source of commercial timber within
the Empire.

Standing, sitting and walking correctly
are the first essentials to good health
and that elusive charm we call style
A LL women wish to be well; but all women
t\ do not appreciate the vital importance
JL JLof correct corsetry as an essential to
good health. The well-known medical
authority, Alice S. Cutler, M.D., warns us:
"As a physician who knows that if it were
not for ill-fitting and the wrong kind of
corset! we would have very few female in
valids, I am naturally determined to do
everything in my power to educate women
in the proper fitting of corsets. Most
learned physicians' now recognize the modern
corset as a hygienically healthful garment
and one that is often the best means of providing corrective support for many bodily
ailments."

The Original-Unequalled Front Lacing Corsets
have attained their unquestioned superiority
by assisting nature to perfect expression.
Every Gossard is hygienically correct. Properly fitted to the figure for which it was
designed it will give scientific support to
abdominal and back muscles, with no chance
of undue pressure at the waistline; the organs
of nutrition will be free from pressure; the
erect posture which is induced will encourage
deep breathing and the diaphragmatic mus
cles become strong with use. A woman so
corseted will have the undeniable beauty of
health and that grace of body, standing,
sitting, or walking, which is best expressed
in the one word, style.
We unreservedly recommend Gossard Corsets
as the complete expression of modern corsetry.
Our highly specialized corset service is maintained with a full appreciation of the exacting
needs of the modern, active woman.
