Cumberland Cops
The Colonist Cup
A short'meeting of the City Council
It must have been a source of great
gratification, to the teaching staff of
tbe Cumberland Public aud High
Schools on Friday last on the occasion of the annual school sports held
at Courtenay, to see such a large and
enthusiastic turnout. Four years ago
the school sports had its birth, the
ilocal teachers, led hy .Mr. II. B. Murray being responsible for the inauguration of tiie annual meets. Tlie local
teaching staff have been well supported in their efforts by tlie great cooperation of tlie principal, Mr, Apps,
who entered into the project with a
will and has become one of the leading lights in the Upper Island School
On account of the sports being held
at Courtenay this year, tlie brunt of
work fell in the Courtenay teachers
and it is a tribute to the thoroughness
of their efforts that the events went
off as smoothly as they did, considering the large number of competitors.
In the High School sections only
Cumberland and Courtenay were entered and all through the .day the
competition between the two schools
was most keen, with Courtenay having a slight lead until the final half
hour or so when tihe Cumberland boys
piled up enough points to give them
the victory, tlie scores being Cumberland 57 points, Courtenay 55 points
Cumberland High School thus captured the coveted Colonist Cup, making
it two out of four attempts that they
have hud this distinction.
In the Public School section, Courtenay had a good lead, with 56 points,
Brechin being second with 45, Cumberland third with 41, Nanaimo, 40
points, having to he content with
fourth place. Other schools in order
of merit were: Comox Sir, Tsolum, 3G,
Minto, 23, Harewood 19, Bevan 16,
Union Bay 6 and Royston 4.
/The weather was not what one
might call ideal for a track meet but
fortunately tlie rain held off all day,
the events being run off according to
schedule. Perhaps the two features
of the day were provided by tlie Cumberland boys when the High School
relay team won handily And 'by the
seventeen-year old Cumberland Japanese scholar, N, Iluyashi .when he
cleared 20 feet 8 Indies in the run-
tag broad jump thus, creating a record for this district. Cllffe Laver, of

Word was received just prior to
going to press that a gang of fifteen
men had commenced work slashing
and getting ready for the road which
is to be built as far as Jock's Point
and which it is felt will ultimately
be a portion of the road linking Port
Alberni and Cumberland. Mr. R. A,
England Is the foreman of the gang
working under the direction of the
district road engineer, Mr, W. P. Bevan. A great deal of pressure has been
brought to hear on the authorities
showing the necessity of such a road,
the newly organized Cumberland
Board of Trade being one of the main
factors in getting the work started.
This road to Jock's point will be of
great benefit, not only to residents of
the district but to visitors from outside points as an Al camping site is
reputed to be in the vicinity of the

The financial result of tlie dance
given by tlie teachers and pupils of
the Cumberland Schools last Friday
evening in the Ilo-Ilo Hall was very
satisfactory. Approximately one hundred dollars were cleared to swell the
fund for the building of a cement
tennis court for the schools. The
Maple Leaf Orchestra donated the
music for the dance, and the teachers
and pupils feel exceptionally grateful
to the orchestra for aiding them 'n
such a way.
The Hall was prettily decorated
with fir boughs and paper flowers.
The dance also served another purpose, Mint of celebrating the winning
of the Colonist Cup by the Cumberland
High School. Immediately before refreshments the "High" boys shouldered their principal, Mr. Shenstone, who
carried the cup into the middle of th
floor. Mr, Shenstone congratulate!
all those who took part in the sports
and called the attention of those present to a great athlete, Nobuo Hayashi,
who played the major part in winning
the cup. Hayashi was chaired across
the floor to the cheers of the assembled company. Archie Dick then called for three cheers for the teachers
Miss Partridge and Mr. Shenstone who
had given them valuable assistance
Following this all competitors drank
from the cup, which was later passed
round the hall for each person to sup
from. '

The school reports for the month of
May were rend. It was mentioned that
the school choir sang at the musical
festival and owing to the splendid
help of their in&tructors were only
four points behind the choir which
took premier honors. The schools
also did very well at the Upper Island
School Sports. The teachers nnd pupils of both schools are at present
raising funds for the building of a cement tennis court, a dance In aid of
this being given last Friday. There
is now a little over jSOQ/JO In hand
and the teachers consulted the Board
ns to the advisability of having tlie cement court built in the near future,
the balance of the cost to be paid in
the fall. A committee of Mr. Henderson, Mr. McLellnn and Mr. .McKinnon
was formed to look Into the matter.

reason for the gathering that evening

thanking them warmly for the kind
way they had received him said he
was very pleased to see such on enthusiastic hunch of fellows and after
going over the ground of Cumberland's breaking away from the Boards
of Trade of the Island said that on
this "the third time of asking" they
would be more successful, In fact he
safd he knew they would and if he,
personally could be of any assistance
he would lie only too pleased to lend
that assistance, He briefly outlined
the work undertaken by bis own board
of trade al Saanich and passed on to
the members of the local board a few
pointers, but one thing he said ho
must impress upon them all. If tho
work of the Board of Trade was to
prosper aud that was "to keep religion and politics out of all their
deliberations." He congratulated
them on the reorganization of tho
Cumberland Hoard of Trade and said
be would be most happy to welcome
them at the convention of the Island
Boards at Qualicum Beach next
Mr. Sladen, of the Saaniob Board
of Trade briefly addressed the gathering. He stressed the point, however,
and believed it, nfmsolf, sincerely, that
no man should listen to all this talk
about conservation of natural resources. Wealthy countries like England
und tlie United States had developed
their natural resources to the limit
whilst the poor countries like Mexico
bad allowed their resources to remain
undeveloped. He was not an advocate
of taking everything out entirely; put

The Cumberland Islander
CUMBERLAND High School athletes scored a
notable victory at the Upper Island School
sports held at Courtenay on Friday last when
they succeeded in gaining possession ot the coveted Colonist cup, given by the Victoria Dailj
Colonist to the High School gaining the mo: I
points in the annual competition. We congratulate the local High School on their remarkable
performance of Friday, more remarkable pe -
haps on account of the injury sustained by Georg
Brown a few days before the sports whilst training, necessitating the bringing into the relaj
team a substitute at the last minute. Noboa
Hayashi was approached and consented to enter
in place of Brown and in spite of hick of training
nobly assisted the locals in winning the Coli nil
While we congratulate the representatives ol
the High School on their fine showing, we also
extend to the Public School athletes, best wishes.
The Public School contestants eventually become
the High School athletes, so. the younger members should receive all the encouragement and
assistance citizens can give them. The Public
School athletes from Cumberland did not make
as good a showing as expected. Frankly speaking
we were surprised that they made as good a
showing as they did Budding athletes can not
hope to win races by training a few days or a
couple of weeks before any event takes place. If
is the continually plodding along in face of all
hardships that brings out the best in one, anil our
advice to the young athletes is to keep their
training up now that they have started. Because
the school sports are a thing of the past—for
twelve months anyway, is no reason why training should stop.
These Upper Island sports have assumed considerable importance and are viewed annually
by an increasingly large number of adults.
The suggestion has been put forward and we
honestly believe it to be a good one, that the
sports be held at some place which would be most
suitable to the majority. Qualicum Beach has
been one place suggested and as it is almost midway between the northern portions and the southern portions of school inspectorate no. 3. no opposition to the sports being held annually at
Qualicum is anticipated.

SAVE THE FORESTS is one of the planks in

Association. This policy is also embodied in
the member's pledge in each of the local associa.
The sportsmen of Alberta consider that the
care and protection of Canada's present forests
and reforestation are essential to the maintenance and to the augmentation of this great natural resource.
They stress the fact that the destruction of
national wealth, when not ace mpanied by intelligent reforesting measures. They also stress
other facts, namely, that the robbing of the eastern slope of the Rocky Mountains of its tree life
will bring disaster to the farmers of the prairies,

The general policy of the Trustees ha
been to grant assistance to ex-servlc
men and their dependents for relic
of distress when caused by illnes:
emergency or death. No grants l.-iv
been made for a straight unempioy
meut relief .although in a large num
ber of cases unemployment has bee
a partial excuse at least why applies
tions for assistance have been madt
For example, a man who is out c
employment may have illness In hi

luad been steadily employed he wouli
not have needed this assistance.
In cases of death assistance lia
boen given In a number of cases Ii
the payment of funeral expenses, whei
an ex-service man himself dies in destitute circumstances the funeral ex
penses are paid from the Last Poas
Fund, but in the case of dependents,
assistance, when needed is given
from the Canteen Fund. It Is generally known, of course, that If a
man's death is due to war service his
burial expenses are paid by the Department of S.C.R..
Under the category of emergency
cases assistance has been granted in
several instances to men who had the
misfortune of having their homes
burned or their furniture destroyed.

lt is made from carefully selected
raw milk which is obtained under
ideait sanitary conditions and surroundings, from healthy cows thai
are kept In perfect health by frequent veterinary inspections. The
milk is condensed tn modern factories wliero cleanliness is supreme, lt
is imperative that all utensils, bottle-,
nipples, etc., be sterilized in boiling
witier before using, when preparing
baby's food. .Make up feeding dilutions fresh at each feeding, mixing
only such quantity at a time as intended for immediate use. hi measuring Bagle Brand use a clean, dry
spoon and do not dip spoon into can,
but pour from can to spoon, allowing the milk on the spoon to -level
itself. In artificial feeding no set
rule can be given for all infants. Bach
infant's desires must bo carefully
studied. The Borden Company, Montreal, issues a carefully prepared
feeding chart, sent free on request,
which may be used as a guide, but,
of course, one should have tlie advice
of the doctor in attendance on feeding and all other matters affecting
tiie child's welfare.
Question concerning Health, addressed to the Canadian Medical
Association, 184 College Street,
Toronto, will be answered, Questions as to diagnosis and treatment will not lie answered.
Typhoid Fever
Typhoid Fever is usually caused by
using contaminated water or milk.
The most effective and practical way
to prevent Typhoid Fever is. therefore
to safeguard water and milk supplies.
To do this is, without question, the
responsibility of every municipal government To do ttiis is also tlie common-sense procedure of the families
who have their own water and milk
If ibis care is taken, there is little,
danger of contracting typhoid fever
us long ins no other water and milk
is used. During the summer .many
go out into tbe country on short and
long trips. Ii is at such times that'
wnter and milk, whioh are not safeguarded as to their safety, are frequently used.
Amongst those recovering from typhoid fever are some cases who continue to pass out the genus of the
disease. Such persons are Icnown as
"disease carriers."   As to whether or
| not these carriers are dangerous de-
I pends largely on their occupation.
■ Carriers should not be employed in
; the preparation, serving or handling
of food.
It was demonstrated beyond question during tho Great War, amongst
Canadian soldiers and those of other
countries, that tlie use of typhoid vaccine gives practically a sure protection against this disease.
Because of these factB we advlss inoculation against typhoid fever for
anyone who ia at all likely to use
water and milk from sources be does
not know, and who is not prepared to
boll, or otherwise make safe, the water and milk before using.

Matheson, Primate of All Canada, the
Westminster Glee Singers will give a
recital here on Tuesday, June 12th, in
the Imperial Pavilion, Royston, under
the auspices of the Elks.
This body of singers enjoys a unique
reputation. It is composed of men and
boys selected specially from the greatest of English cathedral choirs, and
constitutes a complete choir with a repertoire of one hundred and fifty
pieces, both sacred and secular.
Some of the finest voices from Westminster Abbey, St. George's, Windsor,
Christchurch Cathedral, and Old St.
Paul's, are included In the organization
which wns established by Edward
Branscombe, formerly and for ton years
solo tenor at Westminster Abbey, for a
tour of the British Empire.
Recently the Westminster Glee Singers completed two years' travel in Aus
they are going to Australia again, this
time via Canada, in response to an insistent public demand. During their
tour they gave 625 performances.
The soloists Include such noted singers as Edward Branscombe himself,
Donald Reid, solo alto of St. Paul's
Cathedral, in addition to a marvellous
body of boys' voices, composed of choristers representing the finest type of
English Cathedral singing.
The programmes are made up of all
, ._.,.« .... , sorts of secular music that singing can
Archbishop j illustrate, and will include madrigals,
New Motor
glees, part-songs, solos with vocal ac- I
companiments, numbers for boys'
voices only, and male quartettes.
The work ol the choir has been
marked for its perfection of balance of
tonal values, the beauty of expression,
splendor of sonority, and absolute coordination and precision, particularly
In the unaccompanied features.
Whether in the boys' singing, or in
tne men's work, or in the combined
performance of the whole choir, those
who know something of the beauties
of English Cathedral song will renew
old and precious memories when they
hear this body of singers.

Periodical    Brake    Inspection    Made
In order that automobile accidents
may be cut to a minimum the Provincial Police Department are now enforcing new regulations that affect every driver of a motor vehicle. Included
In the new regulations is the clause
that brakes of all motor vehicles must
be Inspected at least once every six
months, and that a certificate giving
proof of this Inspection and signed by
an owner or manager of a motor repair shop or garage be available to
police officials at all times.
No brakes shall be deemed to be adequate within the meaning of the clause
unless they ate so constructed and adjusted as to be capable of stopping the
motor vehicle when operated on a dry,
hard, level highway, free from loose
materials, within the following distances in respect of the following speeds
of the motor vehicle, namely: In the
case of a motor vehicle exceeding 6,000
pounds gross weight, within fifty feet
from a speed of twenty miles per hour
upon simultaneous application of both
foot and hand brakes, within seventy-
five feet from a speed of twenty miles

unless there is carried thereon and
made available for inspection upon request by any officer or constable of the
! Provincial Police Force or the police
, force of any municipality, a certificate
1 signed by the owner or manager of
i some motor vehicle repair shop or garage in tlie Province stating the date
within the period of six months last
preceding on which the brakes of the
motor vehicle were inspected and tested by him and certifying that they
were found to comply in all respects
with the requirements of this clause.
Driving   Signals
The view of the department is that
driving signals should be given as a
matter of habit. If the habit is acquired then tho signal will not be o-
mitted on some occasion when its
omission may mean an accident. The
records of the department show that
many accidents would be avoided if
the proper signals were given. This is
particularly true in the case of intersection traffic. Police authorities from
now on will insist upon the strictest
observance of the regulation.
The definition of a "head-light" has
beeh changed to include "cowl or parking lights." There has been a good
deal of carelessness on the part of
drivers in the matter of lights. Some
are inclined to dress their cars up with
all manner of lights until they look
very much like Christmas trees. Others,
with absolute disregard of their fellow-
drivers and contrary to law. travel
along the highways with light'; aglare.
Others again have lights of unequal
candle-power, contrary to the regulations, and not a few travel with but a
single headlight.
Raucous and harsh horns will hereafter be prohibited. This will include
exhaust .compression or spark plug
whistles, and motorists are prohibited
from giving unnecessarily or unreasonable loud or harsh warnings,
"When a motor vehicle is so constructed or loaded as to prevent the driver
from obtaining a view of the highway
to the rear by looking backward from
the driver's position, the motor vehicle
must be equipped with a mirror so located as to reflect to the driver a view
of the highway for a distance of at
least 200 feet to the rear of the motor
Loaded Vehicles
Motor vehicles upon which are carried any lumber or tiling which projects more than four feet from the
rear of the motor vehicle or trailer,
must have attached and displayed at
all times at the rear end of the projecting load a red flag not less and
twelve Inches square, and during the
period from one half hour after sunset to one half hour before sunrise
there shall be attached and displayed
at the rear end of tlie projecting load
a red light
The department feels that some of
the motor driving public have not
given that consideration which ought
to be given to the pedestrian and to
their fellow-motorists. They not only
endanger their own lives but those of
their fellow citizens . Many accidents
undoubtedly could be avoided if a little
more care were exercised by motor
drivers. Regulations are necessary, but
no matter what the regulations and
how diligent the police, unless there is
co-operation on the part of the driving
public, accidents will happen. The
police authorities invite co-operation
of the automobile drivers. They particularly invite sane and reasonable
drivers to report cases of reckless driving. The private citizen will but be
doing a real public service if he reports
the reckless driver, and thereby probably prevents what if unchecked, will
lead to accident.
But Owner Returns After Many Years
and Captures  Interloper
Saywardy June 2.—Mr. John Cleary,
a one-time resident of Sayward, returned, a short time ago and decided
to again take up farming in the Upper
Valley. Mr. Cleary was a pioneer of
the district and left during the war to
join the 102nd Bn. then getting under
way at Comox. He saw much service
in France and since his return lias been
making his headquarters on the Fraser
River, and more recently at Rock Bay.
where he has been employed by the
Hastings Mill Co.
All these years John has kept his old
homestead, and when he learnt through
the columns of the Courtenay newspapers that his section of tlie district
was to be opened up by a new road, he
was not long in making up his mind to
return and start fanning operations
The house and out-buildings were
just as he had left them, but almost
buried In forest growth of various
kinds. In looking around, he found
that in a very substantially-built shed,
some quite large animal had been
making its home there for a long time,
and concluded it must be headquarters
for a cougar family.
After setting a trap and waiting a
day or so he was rewarded by catching one of the largest male cougars
ever seen in these parts.

■l*'     A HERO FOR
Mrs. Randall Is at Esquimau enjoying a two weeks' holiday with her sister,
Mrs. Mearns.
Suyumi Uchida, a Minto schoolboy,
met with a painful accident last Thursday. Practice for the 1st June sports
had set the scholars on the running and
jumping rampage and the little fellow
jumped and missed, falling on the concrete step and developed concussion of
the brain. He was taken to the Cumberland hospital and recovered so he
was able to be removed home on Sunday.
Mrs. Gunn and her daughter, Mrs.
Wllloughby, left the Valley on Monday
morning on the E. & N. for Victoria.
Mrs. Gunn goes to Resthaven Sanitarium to convalesce for a few weeks
after her illness, and Mrs. Wllloughby
goes back to her home in Calgary.
Mrs, Frank Williamson and little
girl from Vancouver are at Crowton
with Mr. and Mrs. R. Williamson for
a short holiday.
Mr. William Gray, one of our Native
Sons, enters the matrimonial state on
Saturday, June 9th, when in the English church, he conducts Miss Catherine Richardson to the altar. To honor
the bride, friends in the Valley held a
shower on Wednesday evening at the
home of Mr. and Mrs. Davis, when
many useful gifts were handed over as
tokens of good wishes to the youthful
We are rather proud about Minto
School winning the "Alan Neill Cup"
at the sports last Friday. Annie Hut-
ton, Edith Morgan, James Monks, and
Horace Calnan did the needful to bring
home the bacon.
Mr. and Mrs. E. Popham leave the
Valley on Saturday, starting their long
train ride to Montreal, where they get
the boat sailing on the 15th Inst, for
Miss Joy Piercy, from Renton, Wash,
is spending her two weeks' holiday at
the homo of her parents, Mr. and Mrs.
M. Piercy.
Mrs. Fred McKenzie and son left
Cadaman on Saturday last for Minto
to be present at the wedding of her
brother. "Bill."
Mrs. Baker from Pemberton Meadows, a sister-in-law of Mrs. E. Popham,
came to the Valley last Monday to
make a valedictory visit to her triends
before they leave for England. Mr. and
Mrs. Popham are living with Mr. and
Mrs. Matthew Smith in the meantime,
and by a strange coincidence, Mrs.
Baker came from the same district in
faraway Shetland Islands, ns Mr.
Smith. Needless to say, old memories
were revived.

Mitzi was deliclously afraid because

Mltzi turned her eyes a little dim,
from Ihe look she saw on Carl's face,
on Paull's—and, yes—by all that wus

"Open it. I—T can't! Why did I

that .   .   .?"
Bruce opened tlie envelope . . . and
drew out the folded manuscript of
the play .... thick, closely written
.... Carl groaned . . .
'Idiot! Fritz and his practical jokes.'
A paper fell to the floor. Pauli followed it with her Intent eyes. She
said, pointing:—
"Isn't  that"	
"A letter!" Bruce shouted and stooped to recover it. Holding it, he looked
Inqurlingly at Carl.
"Read  it!" Carl  ordered,
"It begins with the usual felicitations," Bruce told him, "and goes on:
—'I have given 'The Enemy' a careful reading. It is a fine play, and K
you will consent to change the ending
I will be proud to produce it. r return
the manuscript to you and will be glad
if you will make an appointment with
me at my office so that we may talk
over the necessary changes. With
congratulations, my dear sir, believe
mo, your admiring and obedient servant"
Bruce broke off. He extended tlie
letter towards Carl.
"I have changed it!" Carl shouted
"Already—oh, it can't possibly be true.
Read lt again. No, give it to me. I'll
read it for myself."
He snatched at the letter. Held it j
close to his eyes—read—line fo<- line---1
threw it down on the desk and turned j
to the girl.
"Paull!" he said.
The tears brimmed over and ran
down her Cheeks. She said, with
shaken  lips:—
"Carl,  dear"—
They looked at one another, They
had forgotten Bruce. Bruce turned
from them and went slowly into the
dining room, He thought -thai settles
it— it's all over. He said to himself,
with a certain savagery: -Well, you're
glad, aren't you? Glad they're getting
what they want? Glad it's come right
for them? His heart answered, Yes,
but what are you going lo do now?
They don't even need you any more!
Suddenly lie was sic': for Bngln-n-d- -

one was wounded; one weni there itnd
salved tlie hurls with Bhe old familial
things of one's birthright!
Behrend Bald:—"Do hurry! what
on earth Is keeping all of you?"
Bruce looked back at Carl an! Paull.
They were standing as lie bad lei't
them there—like statues -needing, he
thought, with an unusual flight of
fancy for him, the right word, the
magic gesture to melt them into each
other's arms, passionate flesh and
blood. He. answered Behrend over the
ache in his throat:-
"There's a letter to be answered at
once." He started to pull the dining
room doors to, and Behrend said, quer-
"What nro you doing that for? Can
nothing wait until after diner?''
Bruce made a gesture, an npoloeget-
ic gesture, in the direction of Paull,
and Carl. He took his place at the
table. Tbe professor and Mitzi looked at him, one gently, the other keenly. Both knew, both knew of his
hurt. Mltzi knew more, but, having
had her say, was determined not lo
"let it go further." The professor said
"We'll not wait longer and  bowed
his head to pronounce  the  blessing.

Paull ran toward him. She pulled

to Carl. They went, linked into tlle

which he had not personally engineered.

tiulet, grave, preoccupied with foreboding.
"My play's accepted," Carl said, "and

"My dear boy!" Arndt was on his

"Not on tbe piny. Lot thai wait. On
Pauli.    She'll marry me, If" —
Behrend said, over the turmoil, anil
plaintively, "But one doesn't approach
marriage like this!"
Dr. Arndt had un arm around bis

Mltzi came up then, fought tier way
through, kissed Pauli soundly; She
said something that sounded like. "Be

her: keep lier safe. Boy, ir you aren't

As a sequel to the accident nt the
foot of the Sandhill at Deep Bay recently. In which two youths lost their
lives, Charles Winfield and Cecil J.
Winfleld appeared in the Provincial
Police Court during the week. The |
former was charged with selling beer
in the Bowser Beer Parlor to minors,
to which he pleaded guilty, but made
the statement that there was nothing
about the appearance of the young men
to indicate they were minors and the
question of their being otherwise never
occurred to him, A witness, who was
in the premises at the time, gave similar evidence. The accused was fined
$300.00 and costs.
Cecil J. Winfleld, the proprietor of
the premises, was charged with selling
beer contrary to the regulations, this
charge arising from the evidence given
at the inquest to the effect that a
dozen bottles of beer had been purchased and taken from tho premises.
Although disclaiming all knowledge of
the transaction, he pleaded guilty and
was fined $50.00 and costs,
