Many At Rites For
Late John Bennie

To Former Prominent
Citizen
CUMBERLAND, BRITISH COLUMBIA FRIDAY,  APRIL 2,   1926.

John Bennle, whose death occurred
on Thursday last was laid to his reat
In the family plot at the Cumberland
Cemetery on Sunday before a largo
concourse of Borrowing friends and
relatives.
Tha funeral service was conducted
at the deceased's late residence by the
Rev. James Hood, the pall bearers, all
Intimate friends were Messrs. Joseph
and Jack Horbury, J. L. Brown, W.
Williams, W. Herd and R. Coe.
After the service at the house, the
local Masonic Lodge took charge of
the funeral, the deceased being a mem
ber of Cumberland Lodge No. 26.
The pall bearers from the Masonic
Order were Messrs. J. C. Brown, J.
Thomson, D. R. McDonald, W. Merrifield, C. J. Parnham and T. Wilson.
Arrived at the Cemetery the beautiful rites of the Masonic Order wero
conducted under the guidance of the
■Worshipful Maater of Cumberland
Lodge, John Walton.
.John Bennle waa well-and favorably
known, not only ln Cumerland and
district but throughout the Nanaimo
district
In looking back over the life of the
deceased, we can not help but wonder
why those forms tbat are presented
to us, and that with whom we mingle,
are taken from us, leaving the thousand streams of our affections to flow
back in Alpine torrents upon our
hearts. Yet we know there Is a realm
where the rainbow never fades; where
the stars will apread out before us
like Islands that slumber In the ocean
and where the good deeds and worthy
' acta that now pass before us like
shadows, will stay In our presence (or
ever. Words cannot expreas the esteem In which the deceased was held.
We always found him the same Jovial
(rlend, always ready and willing to
do his part.
To the sorrowing family, the many
friends and acquaintances of the late
John Bennle, extends heartfelt
sympathy.
THE SCARLET STREAK"
The vital plot progresses swiftly
and events take many queer turns
In the fifth chapter of "Tha Scarlet
Streak," to be shown at the Ilo-llo
Theatre next Wednesday and Thursday. Suspense hovered at fever pitch
at the end of the laat exciting chapter
when Jack Daugherty, as the star
reporter, aurprlsed the henchman ot
"the Monk" at their nefarious work
of stealing the aecret of the death
dealing machine. At grips with one
of the thugs, he rashly stepped Into
the path of the acarlefray, which Is
capable of wiping out armies. A
blinding flash and all la still.
The outcome ot this apparent
disaster Ib the opening feature of
the coming epiaode In wblch the
newspaper that assigned Bob Evans
to the big scoop actually gets hold
of tbe scarlet ray story, the publication of which will mean absolute
ruin and unthinkable peril to the
daughter of the Inventor.
Daugherty ls supported by Lola
Todd and an exceptionally brilliant
cast. Henry MacRae directed the
picture.

BUSY WEEK END
FOR CUMBERLAND
UNITED TEAM
The local soccer team ls going to
be busy this week-end. Good Friday
a Pacilic Coast League game is down
for decision In Vancouver when tho
blue and whites tackle the Saint
Andrews eleven. The game ls scheduled for 11 a.m., thus enabling the
team to get buck to the Island by the
afternoon bout to Nanaimo. Sunday,
the Victoria Veterans, after many
limes calling their visit off, have decided to come to Cumberland and
the kick-off for this game has been
sot for 4 o'clock In the afternoon.
Deluee and Foster will very likely
piny against St. Andrews, this being
their last game with Cumberland.
For the game on Sunday, young
Cumpbell, of Union Buy, will probably bo given a trial at center-forward with Sammy Gough taking
Foster'B place at the left back antl
Ferguson taking the center-half position. If the locals can manage to
bug four points out of these two
games their position In the league
will be  considerably Improved.
NANAIMO WON SECOND
GAME: HONORS EVEN
The re-played Brackman-Ker final
was won by the Nanaimo eleven on
Saturday afternoon last, Cumberland
being beaten by the odd goal In three,
after leading all the way, up.to seven
minutes from tho finish of play.
In the dying moments of a hard
game, Clarke, of Nanaimo, shot two
past the local goalie In great style.
They were magnificent shots, there
la no denying that, but a trifle Iuct*y.
It Is only once in a long, long while
tbat a ball will come so perfectly to
a forward ln an unchallenged position. Clarke took full advantage of
tbe opportunities and registered both
counters. Apart from scoring both
goals, he was not much of it success,
the real outstanding man of the
Nanaimo team being Neill McFarlane.
We have always admired Nelll's style
of play and on Saturday last he wns
unbeatable.
The Cumberland forwards for some
reason or other never really got going, consequently the brunt of the
work developed upon the defense.
The half backs were n tireless three
and played their usual consistent
game, although Gough was probably
not quite as good aB Monaghan and
Brake. Mortimer played a good hard
game, being well supported by Foster
and Orr.
Cumberland, as will bc remembered
won the first game by the odd goal.
but Nanaimo protested against Orr
and a replay was ordered. Thc protest was a trivial one, due to no fault
ot either the Cumberland or tho goalie concerned. However, the hub city
won the protest. Cumberland very
rightly dug up enough Information
against the Nanaimo men to register
a protest also and this protest wns
handed Into the referee at half time
on Saturday.
At the time ot going to press, the
p.otest has not been heard by thc
powers-that-be. Whilst wc ore not
In favor of protests over such trivial
things as a player's transfer not being order, still,  when you come to
think of it, and if you want to live
nt all, you have got to meet dirt with
dirt, meaning of course, that If the
.N'anaimo executive deem it fit and
! proper to dig in the dirt, then it it
right and proper for the Cumberland
executive to retaliate by also digging
In the dirt. It a replay Is ordered
it will be some game .and wc sincerely hope and trust that thc officials
will once and for all clear up any
misunderstanding existing regarding
the players.
Dave Kenny's suggestion that the
cup be cut In half, one portion going
to Nanaimo and the other to Cumberland, is a real good one. You can
have tho base, Dave, and we will
keep tho portion that holds something.
Veterans Elect
Officers At Well
Attended Meeting
A well attended meeting of the
Veterans was held In tho Memorial
Hall, Dunsmuir Avenue, on Tuesday
evening for the purpose of re-organizing and electing officers for the
next twelve months. It was very
gratifying to the promoters to see
such a large turnout of Veterans;
such a large number has not been in
attendance at a meeting for months
and months.
The chief business of the evening
was the election of olllcers, and the
following will guide the destinies of
the Cumberland local for at least
ono term:
President. George O'Brien; vice-
president, A. Mortimer; secretary, J.
Walton; treasurer, Joseph Derbyshire; executive committee, Fraser

secretary, John Walton.
II was also decided to hold a
smolter on a large scale in the very
near future, when an effort will be
made to get In touch with nil ex-
service men in the district. It Is the
Intention of the new organization ot
Veterans to affiliate with the Canadian Legion of the Empire Service
League.

abeyance and the delegation left with

Police Get Clue
Tho audience at the Ilo-llo Theatre
last Monday when Die opening chapter of the Pathe Polite serial "Into
the Net," featuring Edna Murphy and

that when a police chief turns author

adventure, mystery and romance.

be shown next Monday nt the Ilo.

With tho over-eagerness characteristic of the amateur detective, rushing headlong into danger and getting

As for Natalie Van Cleat, the role
portrayed by Edna .Murphy, it is feared by Clayton, who fell In love with

nappers, as she has been Invited to

TROUBLES
There are troubles that worry us day by day
There are troubles that worry our lives away;
$ut the troubles that worry us most of all
Are the troubles that never happen at all.
'vf**yjMit° undertake this job and give themselves!
gladly to it? Surely the cry for more pay and
| shorter working hours has not been heard by the
mother who rocks her child far into the night
and goes down into the Valley of Death to claim
it.
There is something beyond this money-mad
dollar-chasing era of ours; something deeper and
finer than the grab for gold; something nobler
and grander than the labor union  or the big
financial merger, and that something is the service the mother gives to humanity.     A million
dollar stock deal or a billion dollar merger is a J
piker's transaction compared with the bearing!
and rearing of a son who becomes a leader of j
men.     And the woman who puts that big enter- j
prise over doesn't worry about her pay or strike
for higher wages. j
Yes, even now, there is something in life of
more value than money.

A MOTHER'S PAY . Steadily the pay of experts and of specialists
keeps on going up. The bank president, the
corporation director, the surgeon with a specialty, the efficiency man who is paid to make other
people work harder, are always seeking and getting more money. It is believed that we pay
these experts for what they know. Do we?
They all make mistakes and the other fellow pays
for them. The bank president works two hours
a day and gets a hundred times as much as the
janitor who works ten hours a day keeping the
bank clean and warm. The corporation director attends one meeting a week, while tlie manager of the sales department cannot sleep at
night because of his job. The surgeon spends
twenty minutes opening and closing a human
body and it takes the patient six months to save
enought to pay the surgeon's bill. It is the age
of expert service, expert advice and expert pay
—or reward far beyond merit in many cases.
But the greatest job in the world is thc poorest paid in the matter of dollars and cents. The
job of motherhood, the hardest work, the keenest mental anguish, the greatest physical pain,
brings the smallest reward in wages. Any girl
can go out and earn a fair living during the four
years that every mother gives to every child with
out pay. Why is the greatest job in the world
the poorest paid?     Why are so many women

himself hoarse. Easton Evans, his
scout-master, right tackle on the 'Varsity team, was tearing up one of the
best forward passes that the Sheffield
team had been practicing in secret
for weeks. It was the big championship game between Rockledge and
Sheffield.
"It's Eaeton's last year at college.
I do hope they win the championship."
Ruth Adams, her blue eyes dancing,
dark hair waving ln the wind, leaned
forward eagerly waving the red and
blue for Rockledge.
The Rockledge football bowl was
crowded to overflowing ,a sea of wlld*-

and great game of the season. The
star player and right tackle of the
Rockledge line-up, the hero of the day

the scientific detective, uncle of Ken
and Ruth, was giving to a number oi
friends. Ken was Craig's favorite,
hod been named after him Craig Kennedy Adams, worshipped him, but it
was difficult.to say whether lie outranked Ruth, who was the linage of
Craig's sister, Coralie. Then, too,
Craig had arranged this tn n sense
as a tribute to Easton Evans, this
gathering  together of Rome friends.
The fact of the matter was that to
Craig this was more than a championship football game. None better tlnin
Craig knew the qualities and worth nf
Easton Evans. The friendship had
arisen through Craig's appreciation
of what Easton was doing for Ken in
the scouts. IT" had deepened when
Craig had discovered in Evans Inventive genius along the radio lines
that gave promise of another Marconi
or DeForest.
Many a night the two had sat together experimenting, trying out some
| of Boston's latest radio models, glorious nights they had seemed to Ken
and myself, for I was ae big a kid as
the boy over radio. Easton had built
for hmiself what he called his. Radio
Shack on the placid shore of Rockledge Inlet and there' It was that,
taking advantage of Craig's radio
knowledge as a real source of Inspiration, Easton had developed a
deep understanding and creative genius. Kennedy's keen, subtle mind,
his terse unfailing conclusions when
Easton's scientific doubts and hesitations needed encouragement, his uncanny logical inductions from a mere
speck of a scientific premise Iiad
frequently led Easton's alert brain, to
the correct solution of many complicated radio problems. Thus between the two had grown up a true
friendship and Craig had been In a
sense the elder brother of both the
older and younger boy.
It was therefore witli unalloyed
happiness that Craig and I saw the
enthusiasm that greeted Easton.   He

was oven genuinely regarded as a
sportsman by his opponents. Such
was my regard for him that I felt
It did them as much credit as 11 did
him. Also I noted the slight twinkle
in Craig's eyes as he caught tlie
eager flush on the cheek of his nelce,
Ruth. Deep in his heart Kennedy
had long sensed the growing attachment between Ruth and Easton and
had looked on it with more than a
secret favor.
With us, besides Ken and Ruth,
were Ken's scout chum, little Dick
Gerard, of the same age as Ken, and
Dick's sister, Vira Gerard, about lhe
age of Ruth. Next to Vera and as
deeply interested In her as Easton
was In Ruth, was young Glenn Buck-
ley, in the same class and the same
fraternity as Easton. The romance
ot Glenn and Vira had gone further.
They were engaged.
The game had- scarcely started
when our box party was joined by
two oilier invited guests, Professor
Ronald Vnrio of the Rockledge Radio
Station, and ills sister Rae. Tlie professor had lately come from Europe
to take charge of thc great broadcasting slation. one of lhe largest in
the country. He was a very fascinating man and his sister, Rue, was a
dark, vivacious beauty of Indeterminable ago, but with a ready smile and
flashing eyes dangerous to the hearts
of any young man of susceptible age
and temperament.
lt wus an interesting and striking
party and I could not help dividing
time between watching this exciting
game and my companions. Rao had
made much over both Ruth and Vira,
especially over Vira. But there was
something more that Interested me
than lhe sweetly gushing Rao. Did
I fancy that Vira and Glenn were
somewhat self-conscious In the presence of Professor Vario and his sister, yet careful of hiding any embar-
assment? Or was It mere Imagination? The professor looked suave,
yet once I caught a calculating glance
in his eyes us lie looked at Glenn
Buckley. Then there were times
when I fancied also I saw a fascination for the professor on the part
of Glenn.
The quick turns In this game gave
me no chance, however, to study the
members of Craig's party further or
to speculate es to why my friend, the
scientific detective, had brought them
together, if Indeed he had any other
reason than that which ho had given
in sending oul his invitations.
The game was on. The Sheffield
team was playing like a precise chronometer, smoothly, dependably. On
tlle other hand the Rockledge eleven
was playing a sporadic game. Every
man was at a high pitch, nervous,
keen. But now and then I detected
a tendency to take chances. The
team was like a • marvellous race
horse, full of temperament, high-
strung. They needed the cool nnd
firm hand of an exceedingly expert
jockey, to carry out that smile of the
race horse. In other words, was
Easton Evans going to exert that
steadying influence on that team so
that it would work like a machine
and pull victory In the end out of this
close contest?   I wondered.

At any rale Easton Evans, the star
and right tackle of the Rockledge
eleven, was now almost literally riding Ins team, now cajoling his teammates, slapping them on the buck us
they lined -up for the next pluy, the
next moment in a spurt of his own
brilliant playing carrying them along
like u typhoon. Once it seemed that
Easton, by a herculean effort, was
dragging along almost ull of both
teams hanging on him as he pushde
the runner with the hull over for a
lirst down.
Back and forth the hall see-sawed.
It was never in the possession of one
team very long. The teams were
evenly matched. It was a kicking
game in this half but it was not a
rugged gume. I saw that at the end
of the lirst quarter. And. there was
nothing to ehunge my opinion us tlic
lirst half ended, 0-0.
Between the halves there was much
excitement In the crowded bowl as
itockledgo on the east stand sung
unci cheered, then Sheffield on the
west hud its innings with lusty-lunged
acrobatic cheer-leaders. There wus
a tensity In the ulr thnt told me thai
some one before this duy was over

In the football annuls of this classic
contest as long to be remembered.
During this Intermission a boy of
fifteen or thereuhouts entered the box.
lie spoke for a moment to Professor
Vurlo. I knew him. This was Hunk
Hawkins, son of a bunker, whose
parents wcre neglecting him shamefully, the father submerged In business, the mother's time taken up by
her activities in "society." I knew
Hank as a member of the "Flying
Eagles" patrol of which Ken Adams
wus patrol leader. Ken had told me
he had recently hud to suspend Hank
from sundry patrol activities by way
of discipline. Hank wus about to
leave the box when Ken caught sight
of him and called him over. In somewhat of a hang-dog manner Hunk
answered the summons and awkwardly gave the scout salute to his patrol
leader, Ken.
"We're going to have a meeting to
morrow at the Eagles' Nest,' salil
Ken. "Scoutmuster Evans will give
us a talk on radio.   I expect you."
With uneasily shifting eyes, Hank
said he would attend the meeting
then, ns the second half was about
to start, he sidled his way out of the
box.
• The second half was pretty mtion
like the first. No one could, say, ii
he were Impuriiul. thnt he was nol
obtaining his moneys Worth in this
game. Both teanis were out for
blood. The score stood blank and
tied at the end of the third quarter
also. Every one was on his toes as
the teams changed ends of the Held
for the final period.
Then came a succession of breaks
in Ilio game tliat favored Sheffield,
lt began by their running back of a
punt as tlie lust quarter was drawing
to a close. Through a broken field.
Hart, of Sheffield wormed his wuv
until the ball stood on the forty-live
yard line.
Sheffield made its first down, jusl
when it counted. Thirty-live yards
to go-to victory. On the next try
Rockledge held for the first two
down:-:. Easton was working. He
was a tower of strength. It wns evident that if Sheffield wos to win they
must take a big chance.
Tho forward pass again! The ball
sailed over lhe heads of the team and
dropped Into thc arms of the Sheffield end on Rockledge's five yard
line. Evans dropped the player in
ills trucks.
They lined up again. Sheffield waa
wild. Rockledge was stunned. It
was now or never. Evans called his
team back in conference, the famous
"huddle" system.
Eleven grim, determined Rock-
ledgers lined up. There was at the
moment a signal from the side lines
—thirty seconds to piny!
Ken wns muttering lo give Eaet
Evans strength. A tie was tlie best
he could even pray for.
The bull was snapped tor the fatal
play—there was u general melee of
players In the close formation of the
moment. Suddenly Ken let out a
whoop.   His keen  eyes had  seen  It.
A loose hall back of tllc Sheffield
line!    Some one had fumbled!
Ken yelled like u demon, Easton
hud broken through, hud grubbed up
the pigskin. He did not hesitate; be
did not stop, lie was oil down the
field with It tucked close under his
arm. Tlie stands rose in pandemonium as twenty-one players started
ufter Him.
'Always on the job!" muttered
Craig. "That's football! That's life!
When tlie hall wus loose—East was
there!"
"Go it—East!*' yelled  Ken.
On he sped. Were they gaining on
him?   It was  gruelling.
Ninety 'yards for a touchdown, almost the length of the field, the
whole of tiie two tennis trailing him,
the cheering sections yelling their
heads uff. the Rockledge band beating its bass drum—safe—at last—
Easton Evans planted the hail squarely on It. smiling!
There was just lime to kick the
goal.   Seven to nothing.
The students were dancing up and
down, swarming on the field, doing
the famous snake dunce. Ken also
swarmed over ihe fence, tossed his
cap over the goul posts iu the delirium of victory as the loam carried
East Evans off the field on their
shoulders.
Almost speechless, between laughter aud tears, Ruth turned from Craig
to Professor Vnrio, then grasped Vira
hy both bunds as she almost kissed
her.
"Vira!    Tonight!    Our  new   superheterodyne!    A dinner nnd n dance!
For Easton!    Wasn't  It  GREAT?"

The words which you send over the long-distance
telephone wires are your ambassadors. Because you
cannot be at the other end of the line, they represent

Those are reasons why the long-distance telephone is

An Easter
Message
An Easter Message must strive for
three things: (1) To catch the eye of
the scoffer, (2) to rouse the indifferent, and (3) to encourage the believer.
These three types are common everywhere. To the scoffer Easter comcB
with Its message of "Awake thou that
steepest and arise from the dead, and
Christ shall give thee Light." The
scoffer is generally one who Is at
enmity with God. He interprets
everything in the material, and Is
totally blind to the spiritual.   There
Additional i.'izzles, as well as the
answers to the above, will appear in
this corner next week.

must be an awakening in his life, an
opening of his eyes to things other
than the material. To cling to the
material means that he will die, for
"to be carnally (I.e. materially) inind-
| ed Is death, but to be spiritually
1 minded Is life and peace." Let the
[ scoffer once grasp even a glimmer
of the truth of the Easter message
and there will at once take place a
resurrection in his mode of thought.
This was the experience of Paul who
became the greatest Apostle of the
Resurrection. Read Romans 8 and
I Corinthians 15.
To the indifferent the message of
Enstor appeals In another way. It
calls for action. It were better to be
a scoffer than indifferent. The Bcoff-
cr does sometimes think. The Indifferent Is generally too lazy to do ao.
Therein lies a weakness in the corporate life of the Church. It numbers so many Indifferent members In
Its ranks. They must be roused. The
gauntlet is thrown down at Eastertide and the challenge must be taken
up. Tho nicssuge Is not that Jesus
rose, hut that HE IS RISEN, an ever
present reality In our lives. The
whole world at this season is throbbing with new life; It Is a resurrection in itself. Easter challenges the
Indifferent to "cast away the works
of darkness, and to let their light ao
shine before men that men may see
their good works, and glorify, not
them, but their Father who Is in
Heaven."
There can be only one message to
the believer, v.-ho combining reason
with faith is able to withstand all
assaults. Tho Resurrection of the
Christ is his battle cry. In it he finds
the urge to carry on, knowing that
"they who wait upon the Lord ahall
renew their strength; they shall
mount up with wings as eagles; they
shall run und not be weary; they
shall walk and not faint." In the
believer is manifested the power of
thc Resurrection. He can do all
things through Christ who strengthens htm.
To the scoffer, the indifferent, and
the believer, to all alike the Risen
Christ proclaims—"Without me ye
can do nothing. Lo, I am with you
always even unto tho end."

ROD AND GUN IN CANADA
Of considerable interest in view of
the recent controversy in Ontario
over the usefulness or not of the
crow, is a series of articles en Jack
Miner's work that ls running in Rod
and Gun, the sporting magazine. The
April Issue contains an Interesting
article with reference to his advice
on the establishment of a' large bird
sanctuary.
The April Issue of Rod and Gun
also contains a very good offering of
reading matter of Interest to the
sportsman, the lover of wild life and
the outdoors and the casual general
reader. An account of a tenderfoot
bear hunt In the Wilds of British
Columbia makes very interesting
reading as do the current articles of
Raymond Thompson's series "In the
Big Woods of Canafla" and A. Bryan
Williams' "Breezes  from the West."
