Local Hunter Had Seven Shots
at Standing Deer—Missed
Every   Time
Victor Marlnelli, one of the district's keenest sportsmen went-a-hun-
<lng at tlie week-end for deer. Taking
along his fovorlte rifle, he fully expected to land a hig line buck. After
being In the bush a very short time
he was indeed fortunate enough
to spot one. Taking very careful aim,
hc pulled—bang went the old trusty.
Victor made sure he had got his game,
but on taking a good look, saw Mr.
Deer calmly walking off. Bang again;
this time it wns a sure hit, but to the
surprise of the hunter, the three-
pronged one was hiking for all he was
worth. All together. It is reported,
that Mr. Marlnelli had seven shots at
standing deer—and missed seven
times. Victor returned to town with
his tale of woe, but our cub reporetr, \
who scented a story, got busy. He j
made the Btartllng discovery that
someone had taken the lead from the
ends of the shells nnd had Inserted
wooden plugs, and colored them to;
look like the real thing.
Better try your pen-knife on your
sheila next time Victor.

Canadian Club Make
Presentation to Schools
Nine   District   Schools   to   be
Honored
The Comox District Canadian Club
Is making presentations to the schools
lu the Comox District of framed pictures of "The Fathers of Confederation." It Is planned that on the average there will bc two or three pictures for each school ln the district.
This is a very commendable movement on the part of the Canadian
Club as lt has been found that some
of the smaller schools have been entirely overlooked as regards any collection  of historical  pictures.
Tbe schools of Minto and Fanny-
Bay have already received their allotment of Jubilee commemorations,
and it Is planned to complete the presentations In the very near future.
The procuring and donating of these
very line photographic pictures Is in
line with what has been done by the
Canadian Club of Vancouver and of
Victoria.
The following are the schools to be
honored as a result of this worthy
undertaking on the part of the Canadian Club: Cumberland, Courtenay,
Consolidated School of Grantham,
Minto, lloyston, Fanny Bay, Union
Bay, Ilovan. and Comox. Mr. Theed
I'earse, president of the Club, is In
charge of the presentations for the
Courtenay district, while Messrs. MacNaughton, Sutherland, Carey and
Stacey are attending to the Cumberland and surrounding districts.

Immediately notified of the theft.
In the meantime, Mr. Owen was
obliged to return to Cumberland by
other means of transportation, ani
great excitement ensued. All day yesterday thc Nanaimo police searched
for any possible clue.
However, th emystery was completely solved this morning when It

On .Monday evening last, Mrs, Dickson, of   Victoria,    President   of thc
, Columbia Diocesan Board of the Anglican   Women's   Auxiliary,   gave   a
, most Interesting address to the Cum-
I berland W. A. on the work that was
;. curried on at the Triennial Meeting
| j of the  Dominion   Board  of the  Women's Auxiliaries  to  the  Missionary
Society ot the Canadian Church, held
at Toronto last October.
ln commencing, Mrs. Dickson
stated tbat a W. A. was, in the flrst
place to enlarge the Idea of missionary work, and stood for wider
vision. Each member must work to
do service, but must remember that
the outstanding side of the Auxiliary
was the spiritual aspect. Cumberland W. A. sbe said, had done a great
deal for its own parish, besides for
the outside.
The Triennial Meeting was the last
of its kind for In future meetings are
to be held annually, each dlqcese
sending four representatives, including the president. The executive of
the Dominion Board Is composed of
the presidents antl vice-presidents
irom each diocese.
A thank offering of $16,700 was given by tlie W. A.'8 from all over the
Dominion, $650 being the contribution
of Columbia Diocese. Two-thirds of
tbls is devoted to the training of missionaries, tlie rest to build up a pension fund for them.   A fund for help-

PASSING THE BUCK
THE greatest game of all today is putting the
blame on the other fellow—in other words,
"passing the buck," ii is difficult to placi
the responsibility for any error on the responsible
shoulders. This is remarkably true of labor.
Something goes wrong n a job and you try to
find out just who is in blame. Each individual
who had any part in tlie work will wiggle oat ot
his own responsibility and seek to lay the mistake
on some one else.
We know a man of this type who is a past
master in passil g lhe buck. lie is always right,
someone else is always wrong, lie invariably
shirks responsibility and then blames lhe one
to whom lie delegates the task ii' anything goes
wrong. But if hi., substitute comes through and
makes a success of the job that has been given
him, then the buck-passer claims all the credit.
This type of man is not so uncommon a- you
he is right out in front and claims most of the
credit for the happy conclusion.
1 f you have to fix a tire on a lonely road on a
lark night, the buck-passer will be found holding
.he flashlight. If you go out to lunch with him
he is always looking out of the window when the
raiter brings thc check.
What a relief it is to find a real upstanding
'ellow who will admit an error when he makes
me, who will say, "That was my fault, I am to
dame." Mow you admire the chap who carries
.lis full share of life's load, who is not always
licking out the easiest job and who is a willing
worker at all times. If you find yourself getting
nio this habit of "passing the buck," cut it out
at once. If you slice your drive, don't blame it on
your club. If you bid four spades and get set
don't quarrel with dummy because he did not lay
down three honors.
We all know people among our acquaintances
who are chronic buck-passers. They may be
■mart in getting out of hard work and putting the
blame on others but they have few, if any, real
worth-while friends.
LUCK
E heard a fellow speaking of a friend who
had achieved a considerable degree of success, "He's a lucky guy," was the comment.
A man buys a tract of land without thought
if wealth beneath. A geologist finds oil or valuable minerals in its subsoil; outside enterprise de-
velops them and the man, without contribution
of thought sr toil, becomes rich. That is luck.
Another -man thinks of a new idea, toils upon

I One of the worst habits of many
; car owners is forgetfulnesa of the
radiator cover or shutter until the
fumes of evaporating alcohol Indl-
ethat the engine is running ev-
cessively hot. Probably this one
thing Is responsible for more antifreeze losses than any other. It does
not take long for the protective fluid
to disappear if this happens several
times and the wise course is to have
to make certain that tbe freezing
solution tested with a hydromotor
night will not leave the engine Ice-

its ravages have proceeded in the
human body for some time It is hard
j to cure at all. It wlll come as a surprise to most people to know that
nearly 70 per cent of all tuberculous
patients admitted to sanatoria for
treatment are found to be in the advanced and incurable stage of the
disease upon admission. The great
need, therefore, In fighting tuberculosis effectively Is to find the patient
when lie is in the curable stage and
bring liim under treatment at once.
In other words, we must go out and
hunt for tuberculosis and this is the
work wliieh the bulk of the proceeds
derived from the sale of Christmas
Seals will finance.
The only active agency engaged in
tuberculosis work In British Columbia
outside of Vancouver Is the Tranqullle
Tuberculosis Society and it is that
organisation which Is selling tuberculosis Christmas Heals at the present
lime. The public Is being given an
opportunity to make a voluntary contribution to the anti-tuberculosis campaign of which It should take the fullest ndvantage. Every cent of the
proceeds, with the exception of 10
per cent which goes to the Canadian
Tuberculosis Association to cover tho
cost of tho seals and stationery, will
be spent In lighting tuberculosis in
this province.

A branch line of the Southern Pacific Railroad near I<os Angeles was
temporarily taken over by the F.B.O.

Robbery,"  the motion  picture  which
jhaB  already  become  famous   for  Its
' thrilling action, and which comes to
jthe Ilo llo Theatre this week-end.
/    Several locomotives wcre engaged,'
'aa well as complete train*, and thc
I action Involved not only the dynamlt-
| Ing of the tracks, but the destruction
I of  mall   cars   and  automobiles.    In
fact, after the making of the scenes
was   completed,    railroad    wrecking
crews worked for almost a week In
again putting the roadbed ln a passable condition.
A squadron of aeroplanes also lakes
a prominent part in the picture, and
theatre-goers are treated to a demonstration of flying that has probably
never been equalled In the history of
film production. The scene Is In
mountainous country, and several
automobile loads of train robbers are
seen fleeing along a road at the bottom of a canyon. A pursuing Government plane skims along a dozen
feet from the ground and when directly ovcr the automobiles sprays the
occupants with bullets from a machine gun operated from the cock-pit.
So close was the aviator to the ground
that he found it necessary to "zoom"
upwoard as be caught up with 'he.
automobiles to avoid striking them

set. For the girl, curling tongs, boudoir lamp; and for
the mother, a percolator, toaster, iron, egg beater, or
one of the larger electrical labor savers. Dad'll like
a heater, or a desk lamp.

It frequently happens that the
laughs an audience gets out of a
motion picture represent months of
effort on the part of a vaBt movie
organization and the guffaws aro
worth thousands of dollars each to
the producers.
When you sec "Fast and Furious,"
the Universal-Jewel production which
ls the feature attraction at the Gaiety
Theatre on Friday and Saturday, Dec. j
23 and 24, with Reginald Denny Is
the starring role, you will see a concrete example of the "Spare no ex-
| pense" type of motion picture,
j As an outstanding feature ot "Fast
land Furious," Director Mel Brown
; filmed some of the most startling auto
racing sequences ever seen In any
picture. Some of the best known race
drivers appear In these scones, together with their cars, many of which
have broken world's recordB on thc
country's  best  tracks.
In order to lllm these shots to the
best advantage a steel bridge was
thrown across the speedway at a
height Just sufficient to allow the
roaring mounts of the racers to pass
underneath. From this vantage
I point the cameraman ground away
las car after car hurtled by ln a
cloud of dust and the acrid odor ot
castor oil and burning rubber.
I Denny himself takes part ln these j
speod annihiliitiiii: scones. Playing
opposite the star is beautiful Barbara
Worth as the girl In the case. Claude
Gllllngwater. Armand Kaliz, Lee
Moran, Chas. K. French, Wilson
Benge. and others are In the cast
The bi-weekly whist drive was held

TREE SALE RECORDS
Christmas tree exports from Vancouver Island tliis year will exceed
all previous annual shipments, lt is
announced by the Canadian Forestry
association, B. C. Branch. Homes
throughout the Pacific coast region
of the United States and Canada will
be cheered at Yuletide by the 10-year
old douglas firs.
The Vancouver Island Christmas
tree industry is confined to thinning
out of privately owned lands, and provides a winter payroll for many farmers. .Many agricultural lands, which
were logged some years ago, are now
well stocked with young Douglas firs
throughout the Coast region, and the
annual cut of Christmas trees does
not constitute a waste or devastate
the forests in any way, if they are
taken from the young stands, which
require annual thinning out. according to officials of the B. C. branch.
Certain practices were denounced
by the association. To cut the top
off a perfectly sound tree and leave
the trunk to rot ln the forest ls criminal waste, the association holds. It
urges the people of British Columbia
to excercise the necessary care In the
selecting and cutting of Christmas
trees and to avoid damaging of private forest properties in providing
the central figure of Christmas celebration.
