FORTIETH YEAR—No. 17
CUMBERLAND, BRITISH COLUMBIA, SATURDAY, APRIL 23, 1921.
SUBSCRIPTION PRICE: TWO DOLLARS PER ANNUM.
Brackman-Ker Cup Won
By Cumberland United
Provincial Champions Score Only Goal in Match Against Nanaimo
City Team, Thus Winning Brackman-Ker Cup and Qualifying
For McBride Shield Final, Which is to Be Played End of Next
Week in Vancouver — May Charter Special Steamer for
Excursion Trip for the Game.
Two hundred people journeyed to Nanaimo on the excursion
train Saturday last, and almost every motor car with a workable
engine and revolving wheels made the 75-mile road trip, loaded
with fans eager to see the match which was the cause of widespread interest, when Cumberland met the Nanaimo City team on
the latter's ground.
The rivalry for supremacy between the football teams of these
two towns has always been keen, and was none the less Saturday
last. As Cumberland scored the only goal in the game, they not
only won the Brackman-Ker Cup but also qualified for the final
game for the B. C. Championship, to be played in Vancouver on
Saturday, April. 80. In this latter event the Cumberland team
will be defendingtheir title, being holders of the McBride Shield
for the season 1919-20. Besides these two trophies the local
soccer team also holds the Upper Island League Cup for the present season, as well as the Vancouver Island Championship for last
year, and are also leaders in the present series.
The game played last Saturday was
somewhat sensational. Nanaimo had
the benefit of the home ground, bul
met defeat, although they were deter
mined to be the Upper Island representatives In the final of the McBride
Shield. However, Cumberland won
out In a hard tussle. Nanaimo had
the advantage of a strong wind In
their favor in the lirst halt of the
game, but the Cumberland defence
kept their goal Intact, and at no time
were the Nanaimo players, considered
dangerous. The shooting of the Nanaimo forwards was poor, owing to
the fact that the Cumberland defence
would not allow the Nanaimo players
to settle down, being continually on
the alert aud robbing their opponents
of any opportunity that was likely to
come their way.
Good Cop Tie Final.
It was a splendid cup tie final, both
teams battling desperately for the first
goal, which fell to Cumberland after
35 minutes of play in the first half.
A nice cross by Bannerman was taken
up by Home, who nicely tricked
Murray and scored a beautiful goal
from 12 yardB out, giving Hughes no
chance whatever, the ball landing ln
the corner of the net. Up to half-
time Nanaimo City played, all they
knew for the equalizer, but without
avail.
The second half was a game of the
give-and-take nature, the defence of
both teams playing a great game, and
continually breaking up the combination of the opposing forwards, preventing them from settling down to
a good steady game. The Cumberland
players seemed to be resting on their
oars with the one goal lead, being
satisfied to play a defensive game,
which Is good tactics in a cup tie
final. The game thus ended with the
same score as at half-time, Cumberland United 1 goal, Nanaimo City 0.
This game was probably minus good
combination work, but taking it all
through It was a hard-fought .game
for supremacy.
Nanaimo Players.
Hughes in goal for Nanaimo kept a
good goal, and could not be blamed
for the goal scored, as be had no
chance whatever to save it. Murray
and Bell played a very consistent
game. Sam Sullivan was the pick of
a good half-back line, with Dickinson
being the star of their forward rank.
Cumberland * Players.
Walker was safe in goal, and anything that came his way he disposed
of ln his usual style. At no time was
he in dltllcultles. Strang and Campbell were a Bound pair of backs, and
Roberts waB the star of a good halfback Unci in fact Roberts waB considered the best man of both teams,
he playing almost a perfect game,
Home waB the best of a good forward
rank, although Pilling on two occasions had hard luck In not scoring.
Line-Up of the Teams.
The following were the teams:
NANAIMO CITY—Goal, Hughes;
backs, Murray and Bell; half-backs,
Graham, McDougall and Sullivan;
forwards, O'Brien, Dickenson, Stobbart, Robertson and Husband.
CUMBERLAND UNITED — Goal,
Walker; backs, Strang and Campbell;
half-backs, Irvine, Roberts and Conti;
forwards, Bannerman, Milligan, Pilling, Hitchens and Home.
The referee was E. R. Locke of Victoria, and the linesmen A. Michie and
A. Morrison, Ladysmith, who all gave
entire satisfaction.
Tag Day To Be
Arranged For
Parent-Teacher Association Will
Endeavor to Have Children
Visit Canadian Fleet
The regular monthly meeting of the
Parent-Teachers Association was held
in the High School on Monday evening, when a goodly number turned
out, notwithstanding the other attractions in the city on that evening. The
President, Mr. John Sutherland, was
ln the chair.
The Grounds Committee had arranged for the discussion of the evening, and Mr, T. E. Bate made an extensive report on what he considered
would be beneficial for the children,
ln the shape of swings for the little
tots, horizontal bars and other sources
of amusement and exercise for the
children.
Rev. W. Leversedge came prepared
with data on what some of the larger
centres had achieved in the way of
supervised play for the children, and
he strongly appealed to the audience
for such supervision, not necessarily
adult supervision, but a scheme
whereby leadership and responsibility
would be carried on by the boys and
girls themselves, thus placing the responsibility for fair play and a code
of honor on themselves.
During Mr. Leversedge's remarks,
he Informed the members that the
chairman ot the committee had suggested that he introduce something
provocative of discussion. After his
address there was no doubt about the
result, for many of the members took
an active "part,
Tag Day to Be Arranged For.
Recognizing that nothing definite
could be achieved by meetings alone,
it was decided to request permission
from the Mayor to hold a tag day, so
that funds might be got for tbe necessary fixing up of the school grounds,
so as to get the best means of enjoyment and pleasure for the boys and
girls. Mrs. G. IC. MacNaughton was
appointed convenor of this commit-
,tee, with Rev. J. Hood, Mr. C. B.
Wood, Miss Watson, Miss C. DaKon
and Mrs. Emily, with power to add to
their number.
School Children May View War Ships.
Rev. Leversedge drew the attention
of the meeting to the fact tbat we have
the nucleus of our Canadian Navy at
Comox, and that it possible it would
be something to be remembered If
arrangements could be made to give
the children an opportunity of seeing
the vessels, and thus introducing our
coming citizens to our coming Canadian Navy.
After a lot of discussion It was de
elded to make arrangements for i
committee to enquire fully into the
matter and see If it could be made
possible for the boys and girls to have
this treat.
Want Fire Escape Extended. .
The matter of the Fire Escape on
the new building came up tor consid
eration, and it was carried that a letter be written to the School Trustees
suggesting that the matter be referred
to the government to have the steps
of the fire escape brought right down
to the ground, thus completing thc
Job satisfactorily and doing away with
the present element of danger.

Cumberland, B. C.
In China the business men conduct
their affairs without receipts or writ
ten contracts. To the surprise of one
English merchant there, a business
man called Li Fong asked him for a
receipt one day, the reason being "lie
lind become a Christian."
"But are we not brother Christians,"
-inId the merchant.
"O, yeb. But suppose me die. Me
go long Heaven. See Peter. He sav,
'You be blind Clistlan?' 'Vch. yen, me
good man, kind man, mc plenty kind
man.' 'Vou pay all your bills?' 'Yeh.'
Vou got leccipt?' Then me got to go
all lound hell to look for you and get
'ceeipl."
The Boss: "You young ladles nre
getting worse every day. .Miss PlayilG
is the only one among you who does
nol keep her eyes guecl to the clock."
The Stenog.: "She would, too, only
she's afraid of stopping it."
The Cumberland United Football
team, hy defeating Nanaimo City hist
Saturday and winning the Brackman-
Ker Cup, also have the honor of defending their present title as B. C.
Champions. They are also winners ol*
the Upper Island Championship. They
are scheduled to play the winners of
match between St. Andrew's of Vancouver and Victoria Mets; this latter
game takes place this Saturday and
the final on the Saturday following.
It is to be hoped the executive of
the local team will decide to select the
same team that won the Brackman-
Ker Cup; and assuming that they do
so, a little chat here with every Individual player or the team will not be
amiss at this stage of -the game.
Step tin* Other Guys Scoring, Bill!
With Bill Walker in goal, no doubt
we are well represented and defended.
Hill, just continue your usual skill
and Judgment und clear your lines in
your usual style—in fact, Bill, stop
the other guys from scoring, and tlie
midgets In tl.e (rout rank will do the
needful; thus we ure assured of success.   Atia boy, Bill!
Veteran ul' .liniij  a  Hind ('nine.
The right-back position is well lilleil
by Jimmy Strang, the old veteran of
many hard games. Now, Jimmy, give
us some of your old-time skill of tackling and kicking, aud use your old
head to advantage, aud no doubt you
will eliminate Walker's work from
that side of the Held.
Keep Cool, Jock.
The'left-back position is also well
filled by Captain Jock Campbell. Take
the tip, Jock, keep cool and collected
and give us some of your best displays. Don't lose your temper, as you
Know when a man is iu a temper be
loses his thinking power. A buck, ami
more particularly a captain of a team,
must use the greatest strategy to attain success for himself and his team.
Joy be wi' ye, Jock. Uood luck and
uriug back tlie shield.
Keep Elbows out of Kills!
Jock Irvine, Ihe right half-back
hardly needs any coaching, except to
Keep your elbows out ot their ribs,
Jock, it means a foul and a free kick,
und all free kicks are dangerous.
Keep I p tiie timid Work.
H. Roberts, centre-halt*.    Just give
us a display equal to last Saturday.
Of course, if you have any better, give
it to us, and we are bound to win.
Don't Handle Ball, Sacki.
Sacki Conti, left-half. Sacki, your
tackling is fairly good, but your placing to your forwards could be iui-
impioved on; steady up boy. And I
must remind you of a bud habit of
yours, namely, wilfully handling the
bull. If you can't get the ball otherwise, let it go—there is always a man
behind you (.the left-back). Wilfully
handling tlie ball Is always a trCB
kick for the opposing team, and ail
free kicks are dangerous. Wilfully
handling in the penalty urea means a
penalty kick, which no doubt handicaps yuur goalkeeper considerably
and your team iu general. In fact,
many a game has been lost hy a penalty kick. Therefore, Sacki, make
every effort to get out of that habit.
Uood luck to ye!
Take Uood Bearings.
Danny Bannerman, on tlie outside
right. Just give us tlie best that is in
you, und when crossing the ball just
take your bearings from that little
white spot ou Filling's top-piece, and
something is sure to be accomplished.
Don't forget, Danny.
See Partner Well Hutched.
Billie Milligan, the inside right.
Continue to give them your usual display, but take notice if your outside
partner is well matched. There is always a man in the centre you can pass
the ball to.
Tlle II ii inn ii  Ply.
The centre position is well tilled by
Alf. Pilling, the "human Ily." No
doubt you might feel strange yet in
your new team. Keep tliat head working on those crosses und success is
bound to come your way. Dig right
on, you heavyweight!
Alta Hoy, Dndn!
Charlie Hitchens, Inside lel't. Probably, Charlie, your play would lie more
effective if, when passing the ball to
your outside man, you would only put
ibe ball a little more ahead, as on

Honors of Team.
During the season 1M9-2U the Cumberland United Football team secured
high honors, being winners of the Upper Island League, Upper Island Championship, Island Championship, and
McBride Shield Championship, emblematic of the Championship of B. C.
So far this season they are winners
of the Upper Island League, Brackman-Ker Cup, emblematic of the Upper Island Championship, leaders in
Ihe All-Island League (likely winners)
and finalists for the McBride Shield.
Prcvlons Careers of Plnjers.
BILL WALKER (goalkeeper) is a
great defender between the slicks; ho
uses great judgment and clears his
lines in excellent style; he has played
football on the Island for the past 12
years, playing for Xaiiaimo United and
the past three years alternately for
Cumberland. He is a native son of
iiutd Scotland.
JIMMY STRANG, the right-back, is
a veteran of the grand old game; his
tackling and kicking Is good, and he
uses his head to advantage at all
times. Like Walker, all his football
experience lias been gained on tlie Island, at Ladysmith, Nanaimo United
and Cumberland. Also a son of Auld
Scotia.
JOCK CAMPBELL, the left-back and
captain of the team, although much
younger than his partner, tackles and
lilcks well, and playing together they
make a good pair and arc hard to
beat. Campbell played (or Vancouver
Rangers Inst season before coming to
Cumberland, lie also claims Scotland
as bis laud of birth.
JOCK IRVINE, the right half-back,
Is a consistent player, his tackling
ami placing being good nnd hard to
beat. His previous clubs were the
Vancouver Longshoremen and Celtics.
Another lad from the Land o' the
Heather.
HAROLD ROBERTS, centre-malf,
leaves nothing to he desired; his tackling and placing Ib good, and he ls an
adept at breaking up combination
play. His previous teams were: Bol-
lon Wanderers, England; Victoria
Comrades, Vancouver Longshoremen.
He comes from Lancashire.
SACKI CONTI, the left-half, ls only
a young player, and along with his
partner they make a nice trio. Sackl's
football experience has been gained in
Cumberland. He Is a native son of
the island.
DANNY BANNERMAN, the outside
light, Is very fast and hard to beat ln
■ ills position. His crosses are almost
perfect. Danny's football experience
has been gained ln Cumberland. He
Ib a native son of the Island.
BILLIE MILLIGAN, the Inside
right, is a very tricky player, and
makes a line partner to Bannerman.
He previously played with Winnipeg
and the overseas forces before throwing In his lot, with Cumberland. He
bulls from Scotland.
ALP. PILLING, the centre forward,
although a newcomer to the team, is
blending nicely with his club mates.
Though small for that position he is
considerable trouble to the defence at
all times; he excells in heading tlle
ball, and when he makes proper connections he is dangerous. A veteran
of the Great War, he played for the
1st Canadian Reserve Battalion, Sea-
ford, and with the 29th Battalion in
Prance; also played Tor the Victoria
.Marines and Nanaimo City before
signing on with the local club. He is
a trombone player of a high order.
ANDY HORNE, the outsldu loft,
leaves nothing to be desired; always
on the alert, very tricky, and good at
slipping his opponent. Like Banner-
man, his crossing is very good. He
played with the Vancouver Rangers
last season. Wee Andy also claims
the Land o' the Heather ns his birthplace.

ISLAND PULLET LAYS
300 EGGS FIRST YEAR
Flock of 200 White Wyandottes
Make Remarkable Average
of 196 Eggs in Year.
The province of British Columbia
nan amply demonstrated its adaptability tor poultry raising. In the egg-
laying tests carried on over Canada
last year British Columbia gave the
highest production. At the Agassiz
Farm, seventy miles east of Vancouver, 200-egg hens were quite common.
250 and 270 by no means rare, and at
the Vancouver Island Station, a
White Wyandotte flock of 200 pullets
gave an average of 195.97, of which
29 were about 175 eggs, and S2 above
200. The highest production was
reached by a pullet that laid 800 eggs
within the year.
At tlle Vancouver Island station no
bird Is considered worth keeping for
breeding that does not lay 200 eggs
tlle first year, alld no cockerel is retained unless his mother laid 2511 eggs
In her pullet year. This Improvement
has been brought about by the pedigree breeding carried on hy tlie Experimental Farms System, which in
recent years has been giving special
attention to the development of high
prdducing strains of fowls.
AGRICULTURAL INSTRUCTION IN THIS PROVINCE
ill
It is noteworthy that it was
citizen of British Columbia who was
responsible for the passing of the Dominion Agricultural Instruction Act
ln 1914, providing for the distribution
of ten million dollars between the
provinces ln ten years for the encouragement and advance of instruction in all lines of agriculture. British Columbia participates in this
grant to the extent of $69,199 annually.
A wide field is covered by funds
from the grant, all tending to greater
knowledge of agriculture and to improvement fii farm and home. In
1919-20, the last year for which a report is possible, $20,000 of tlle money
so derived was devoted to the advancement of agricultural instruction
ln public and high schools and for
the training of teachers, and $12,000
towards the investigation ami extension work of the University of British
Columbia. Ot the balance of $37,199,
dairying and cow testing was helped
to the extent of $8,000, bee-keeping to
the extent of $7,000, pathological and
entomological investigations by $4000,
and agricultural publications hy
$6,000. Contributions were also made
to the expense of dry farm demonstrations, seed work, silo demonstrations,
horticultural demonstrations and competitions, fruit packing and pruning
schools, poultry competitions and
boys' and girls' clubs and fairs.
s As ls to be expected In the fruit
garden of Canada, much attention is
given to horticultural work. This
class of work consists of personal
visits to fruit growers for the giving
of counsel, holding orchard demonstrations, lectures, assisting in judging at fairs, and directing experiments with spraying materials for
the control of injurious insects and
plant diseases.
In connection with the grant allotted to agricultural education, much
attention is given to school and home
gardening and nature study. In this
line of work valuable assistance Is
rendered by the district supervisors
ot agricultural instruction, who are
called upon to conduct a two-year
course of study iu agriculture for
high school students, as well as extension work and continuation classes
In agriculture during the winter
months for those who are no longer
attending scliool.

ORCHARD CULTIVATION
(Experimental Farms Nolo)
British Columbia Is a fruit-raisin,'-
country, yet last year foreign imports show that 4,138,704 pounds of
apples, valued at $186,656, were
brought to tho province. The pre-
vlous year tho total wns 1,006,400,
valued ut $45,366. Other tree fruits
brought Into the province lu 1030
weighed 3,144,903 pounds-being a decrease of a million pounds over 1919.
We Imported 6,307,982 pounds of
canned fruits In 1920, ns against
2,679,761 pounds in 1919 and 1.712,517
pounds in 1918.
II is a well known fact that growth
in tlie orchard tree is made during
the months of June and July, after
which the growth fills out and ripens.
It is also known that early cultivation
stimulates growth. The loosening up
of Ibe earth aids In the warming of
the soil and makes it possible for
soil organisms which liberate plant
food to become active earlier; and
will penetrate better and these or-
ganismsm wlll become active to a
greater depth than if cultivation is
not given.. Hence the importance of
early spring cultivation to furnish
suitable soil conditions for the tree
and the organisms upon which the
tree Is dependent for tbe liberation of
plant food.
Uncultivated areas may be made
suitable for the tree by supplying
nitrogen in an available form early
through the use of nitrate of soda
and by using a mulch to conserve
moisture, hut on the whole the prac-
lice most suitable for general orchard
areas is early cultivation followed by
frequent culllvalion at intervals of
a week or ten days to the middle of
June or July, after which orchard
cultivation should cease.
The first cultivation may be shallow
ploughing, four or live inches deep,
after which surface cultivation with
the disc and smoothing harrow to
maintain a surface mulch of fine
earth Is all that is required. Deep cultivation is not desirable, as the feeding roots naturally grow in the surface soil and deep cultivation may injure them. Shallow culllvalion prevents the formation of n surface
crust, thus checking excessive evaporation of moistaure and retaining it
for continuous growth of fruit, and
insuring a proper moisture supply for
the tree later iu the season. As soon
as the ground Is dry enough after
rain It ls wise to start the barrow.
producing thereby at dust mulch,
After the middle of June a cover
crop should be seeded to occupy the

British Columbira poultry set new
records in the Dominion egg-laying

Latter Became Child of Jungle,
Living Life of Animals—
Extraordinary Case.
An Indian romance is told by an
engineer who was in charge of road
building in the Caclier Hills, India.
One day lie asked a villager to do his
share of work, and the man told him
that lie was afraid to leave the vll
lage; his wife having died a short
time before his little wild son mlghl
run into the jungle and get lost. This
aroused curiosity, He paid the villager a visit and found a child of
about seven years of aye. with Innumerable white sears of tiny cuts aud
Berate lies all over his body. He
learned from the father that live years
before the villagers of Cacharl had
killed two leopard cubs, ami the
mother leopard iiad prowled about the
jungle bordering on the village, A
few days later the villager's wife left
her child on a ololli and reaped rice,
and the leupard took the child away.
Tlie villagers searched for it but
tailed lo lind it.
About three years later a sportsman killed a leopard, mentioning to
the villagers that the dead leopard
had two cubs. The villagers searched
the jungle aud found thc two cubs and
a wild human boy. Every one recognized in the-latter the villager's lost
child. It ran on all fours almost as
fast as a big man, dodged in and out
of bushes most cleverly, bit and
fought with every one who tried to
catch it, and tore to pieces ami ate
with extraordinary rapidity any village fowl which came its way.

ONTARIO  "BONE   DRY"
By a fairly substantial majority of popular sentiment the
people of Ontario have decided lo have nothing to do with
liquor. In future it will assume what is known as a "bone
dry" slate. In other words, neither the government noi
the corporate trailer may oiler liquor for public sale. Xoi
may the private individual import It for his own use. it is
absurd lu suggest that liquor will not he distributed b>
the bootlegger.
The result was not altogether unexpected. Ontario has

Prohibition Act. That alone has proved that a measure ol
this nature which does not command the respect and support of what must be more than a substantial majority is
difficult to enforce.
In the case of Ontario the minority is so great that Ihe
government must expect some of the people to resort to all
the arts and devices that are calculated to provide the
wherewithal to slake thirsts which demand a varied liquid
menu. Nevertheless the "dry" forces have won, and it

tlie necessity of the conservation of fuel oil for naval purposes, means an important increase in the use of coal as
fuel for steamships. It is, therefore, essential that ample
supplies of coal be maintained at the ports, and that these
ports be equipped with the most efficient nnd economical
means of receiving shipments of coal hy water from Vancouver Island or hy rail from mainland mines; and of
delivering the same into ship bunkers.
The Alberta coal operators have been active in pressing
or accommodation at Prince Rupert, which port they hope
to supply with the necessary bunker coal. Hon. J. L
Cote, Minister of Mines, and H. Stutchbury, Trade Commissioner, have been doing active work in this connection,
with the result that the management of the Canadian
National Railways lias promised to make tlie required
provision at that port.
Col. Kirkpatrlck, Chairman of the Vancouver Harbor
Commission, informs us that he and bis fellow commissioners are alive to the importance of proper provision
for handling bunker coal being made at Vancouver, and
they will represent to the Dominion Government the desir-
bility of providing necessary funds for it.—Mining and

BUNKER  COAL
In view of the growing importance of the ports of British Columbia, it is time that steps were taken to establish
up-to-date bunkering plants. Action in this direction has
probably been delayed by thc fact that so much shipping
uses fuel oil.   The difficulty of obtaining oil supplies, and
According to the Prince George Citizen, the feeling In
favor of the creation of a new Province in tlie northern
part of British Columbia has been overestimated, at least
30 far as shown In the vicinity of that city. At a recent
meeting called by the Board of Trade, which was well
attended, ull ihe speakers were agreed that their district
had never received justice al thc hands of the various gov
ernments of tiie Province, but only one speaker was pre
pared to come out in favor of secession. Tbe chairman of
■ lie meeting pointed out that the tendency of recent years
had been lo enlarge provinces rather than reduce their
size. Another speaker claimed that as the members of
the Legislature from the northern part of the Province
could now by their refusal to support Ihe Oliver government, bring about Its defeat, the citizens would now know
whom to blame if more consideration was not shown the
north. The fact Unit the P. G. E. is unfinished may have
done much to dampen the enthusiasm of those who realized
that secession would mean that the new province would
have to complete tlie railway itself.
The turn for the belter of the financial tide seems to be
in sight. Interest rates have dropped in Great Britain
and the United States. The Royal Securities Corporation,
In a recent circular, says: "It Is our opinion, and for
tunately one wliieh we believe Is shared by many others,
thai long before the close of this year, 1021, the commer
eial world, and particularly Canada, will have completed
a widespread re-establishment of profitable commercial
and industrial activity."

era on both sides seemed to be affected with the general excitement over
the issue. Cumberland defence were
the exception, Walker, Campbell and
Strang were giving nothing away, and
try as they would, Nanaimo's crack
front line could not get through.
Robertson, who was the best of the
quintette, met with an accident, falling heavily on his wrist and had to
retire for a few minutes. Three corners to Nanaimo were without result.
Cumberland's front rank woke up
and play was transferred to .Nanaimo's
end. Pilling getting possession was
\ forced to carry the hall over to tin*
right, getting in a cross; Murray and
Bell were caught napping and Home,
slipping through, had no difficulty in
scoring.
This reverse seemed to take some
of tbe pep out of Nanaimo and Cumberland had the best of the exchanges
until half-time was called.
On resuming, Nanaimo tried hard
to equalize and continued to have a
greater share of the play, hut could
not pierce the stonewall defence of
the champions,
Campbell and Strang were in great
form, their kicking and tackling being
everything that could be desired.
Roberts at centre-half was more than
a match for Stobbart, "Dickie" seldom being in the limelight. Home
was a source of worry to Nanaimo's
defence; his solo runs and crosses
were always dangerous, one of his
shots just being deflected by Murray.
Pilling also had hard lines; with the
hacks beat and the goalkeeper coming
to meet him, he lifted the hall over
the bar, just missing by inches. He
again had hard lines when he missed
a cross from Bannerman, making the
net himself but not getting enough of
the  ball.
With time drawing on, Nanaimo put
forth every ounce of energy in an
effort to draw level. Sullivan, who
was the pick of Nanaimo's hall's, tried
to get thorugh on his own, but was
forced to part with the ball before
reaching Walker, Campbell met with
an accident, being struck over the
heart with the ball. He was out for
ten minutes, but on recovering bis
play was not affected, lie still being a
tower of strength to his team. Time
was called without the score being
added to.
Referee Locke handled the game to
tbe satisfaction of all. The game on
tho whole was very clean, considering the honor at stake. Nanaimo did
the bulk of tbe pressing but Cumber-
laud had more scoring chances, Pilling being unlucky on two occasions
In the second portion of play.
For the winners Campbell was probably the most useful player on the
field. ' His display will lie hard to
equal. His partner, Strang, was also
at the top of his form. As a pair they
are without their equal in B. C.
Walker in goal was his usual self, always safe and reliable. His record
speaks for itself—twenty-live games
for Cumberland without a single defeat.
Thc half-hacks, Irvine, Roberts and
Conti, deserve a considerable share of
the victory; they ne.ver allowed the
coal city's star front line to settle
down. Home was the pick of the
front line. Andy had Graham's measure aud beat him time after time.
Pilling took some holding and with
a shade of luck would have scored.
Murray, Sullivan, Dickenson and
Robertson were the pick of the losers.
Nanaimo have the makings of a great
team. With one or two weak spots j
strengthened they will be hard to beat.

G.W.V.A. PROTESTS 111
AGAINST   "GRAB" ="
Cowichan Branch Would Turn
Members of the Legislature
Out for "Looting"
At a meeting of the Cowlchan G. W.
V. A. last week tho following resolution was passed unanimously by a
good attendance:
"Whereas tlie members of tbo legislature for the province have voted
themsleves a large increase in their
sessional indemnities, and huge increases have been made in tlie salaries of tbe Premier and Ills colleagues
in the cabinet, and
"Whereas, according to the statements made by the Premier the conn
try is In such a perilous slate tlnan
dally as to render It Impossible to
vote relief to municipalities, or to
properly aid lu tbe maintenance of
tbe schools aud hospitals, and
"Whereas tbe decrease In the cost
of living has been given hy I lie I'rem
ier as a reason for refusing the statuary increase to the civil servants tills
year, ami
"Whereas, for like reasons, the pay
of day laborers in the employ of tbe
government has been cut enormously,
and
"Whorens thousands of men nre out
of work, and they and their depend
ens nre in need of the common neces
sitios of life, and
"Whereas 'looting' In the army was
a serious crime, nnd Is even more reprehensible in tbe legislature,
"Be it resolved: that in tbe opinion
of this meeting of the Cowichan
Branch of the G. W. V. A., every member of the legislature (with tbe exception of tlie Opposition Leader, whose
stand on this question we heartily approve) should be returned to private
life for their unwarranted action, at
the first opportunity.
"Be it further resolved: tbat in the
opinion of this meeting these members should resign their seats and
test the public feeling ou this question. Tbat copies of this resolution
be forwarded to the Premier, the
Leader of the Opposition, and to the
member for this district; further,
that the members of Mr. Duncan's
advisory committee be invited to slate
whether tbe member for Cowichan
was acting upon their advice or upon
bis own initiative In voting for increased members' indemnities."
It was also resolved that tbe Mayor
of Duncan and the Reeve of North
Cowichan be requested to eo-operate
in calling a public meeting to protest
against and to consider what action
should be taken in regard to tbe
"salary grab" by the members of the
legislature.
Messrs. L. W. Huntington, A. Bischlager and A. Goddard were appointed
as a committee to deal with this matter, and to take such other action as
might be considered advisable.
A further resolution condemned the
"pliarasieal" action of the member
who, after signing a round robin and
voting for the increase, bad handed
over $400 to the hospitals, and stigmatising tbe action of any other member who should follow his example.
GROCERS WANT NET
WEIGHT OF ALL GOODS
STAMPED ON PACKAGES
VANCOUVER. — Provincial grocers
want the government to enact legislation compelling tho net weight of
all commodities sent into the province
to be stamped on them nt the plac
where the packages originate. Thi:
was contained, in a resolution adopted
at their convention last week. Copies
of it will be forwarded to govcrnnicnl
ollicials, and every effort made to
secure the necessary act of parliament.
A resolution wns unanimously
adopted endorsing the measure now
before the Federal House with reference to fraudulent advertising.
A discussion, in which all the delegates Joined, on tbe unfair nnd unethical methods adopted by some retailers, took considerable time. A
strong determination was expressed
to Impress upon the retailers the
necessity of acting in a straightforward way.
Kust Illlll West Cannot .Mix.
Mr. Paul Findlay, Held manager of
tbe California Fruit Growers' Association, addressed the members on the
situation in California with reference
to the Influx of Orientals.
"It Is not a matter of trade competition so much as it is a question of
tbe impossibility of tlie two races
mixing," he said. "The East ls thc
east, and the West is tlie west, and
though we have a high admiration for
tbe Orientals we realize tbat we cannot meet on common ground. Lot
them stay in their place and we in
ours."
A Lup Ahead of the Sheriff.
A    forceful    speaker,    the    many
points  made   by   Mr.   Findlay   wero
greatly appreciated by the audience.

Genuine Ford Parts Only
SERVICE
E or the Ford Company cannot be held responsible for the
performance of your Ford if you use parts not made by
the Company.
The Ford warranty automatically becomes void the moment you
use spurious parts on your car.
You cannot afford to incur this penalty. Nor do you want your
cur weakened by badly fitting parts made from poor material.
Spurious parts are manufactured with profit as the first consideration. Genuino Ford parts have the Ford reputation to
maintain.
It is to the interest of both the Company and ourselves that
your Ford shall give you continuous satisfaction. The interest of
those who make and sell spurious parts ends with the sale.
The only way to make sure of getting the genuine is to patronize
the dealer displaying the Ford Service sign. That sign shows that
tho dealer has bound himself by contract to sell genuine Ford parts
only. Wherever you go, look for this sign, your guarantee of
satisfaction.
As Ford dealers in this community, we render Ford service. We
sell genuine Ford parts at a standard price which is set by the
Ford Iiotor Company. Our charges, for repairs are also on the
"one-price" basis. You know the whole cost before we perform
the service.

RESIDENTS OF QUEEN
CHARLOTTE ISLANDS
ALARMED BY 'QUAKES
PRINCE . RUPERT.—Arrivals from
the Queen Charlotte Islands report a
series of earthquake shocks at Massett
last week. The occupants of the two-
storey hotel were awakened and
alarmed to Bee lamps swaying, while
Ibe building rocked. The first tremor
is said to have lasted one minute. A
second shock occurred at 11 o'clock
the same morning, a third at 7 In the
evening, each of these being very
brief. Another tremor was felt at 7
a.m. the following morning nnd a fifth
in tbe evening.
While no material damage was done,
I lie 'quakes were strong enough to
disturb mirrors and pictures on the
walls. The shocks followed a severe
storm.
SILVER STRIKE SAID
TO BE RICHEST EVER
DISCOVERED IN NORTH
DAWSON, Y.T.—Arrivals from Keno
Illl! In the Mayo district, confirm tho
report that a nine-foot silver vein has
been struck In the Rico claim thorn.
The strike was made in a tunnel
which pierces the side of a thousand-
foot bluff. Tbo ore continues to the
surface, 75 feet above the tunnel and
runs 75 feet below the tunnel in a
shaft. Tbe lay extends much further
down.
Two feet in the middle of the vein
Is solid high-grade galena assaying
over $200 to tbe ton, while on either
side are carbonates quite as rich. The
vein Is probably the richest ever
struck in either the Yukon or Alaska.
NICKEL  COINAGE

YOURTEETH
FIRST STAGES OF DECAY
OF THE TEETH
By Rea Proctor McGee,  M.D., D.D.S.
Editor of "Oral Hygiene."
If your knife and fork, spoon, plate,
cup and saucer were left from ono
meal to another without thorough
washing, you would change your
boarding-house.
But why he so particular about outside matters unless you thoroughly
cleanse your own mouth after each
meal?
When food is allowed to pack between and around the teetli caries, or
decay as it is commonly called, gets a
good start. The packed food decomposes and ferments; tliis makes tlie
bacteria happy, so thoy all move In.
As the bacteria get settled upon the
enameled surface of the teeth, they
cover themselves with a coating called
a gelatinous plaque. Under this protective covering the bacteria grow
unless they are removed by thorough
cleansing.
Decay   of   the   teetli,  caries,  is
disease just the same as tuberculosis
or   measles   is   a   disease.     In   this
disease thc hardest tissue iu the body
is attacked.
The bacteria of decay are really
tiny plants. They live and die as
other plants die; tbey decompose and
ferment, forming an acid. Tliis acid,
in Its fresh state, will dissolve the
enamel of the tooth a very little at
time at first, but thc further in tlie
bacteria they get the more rapidly
they work.
The enamel of the teeth is not sensitive. It is composed entirely of the
salts of lime, shaped into microscopic rods that aro bound together hy a
natural cement. The rods oil point
toward the centre, like the bricks in
an arch. Enamel is the armor plate
of a tooth; when the decay gets
through the armor it readies Ihe ends
of the tiny libres from the nerve thai
radiate through the body of the
tooth.
It is here that you get that first
sharp pain that tells there is trouble
ahead, trouble that-only one person
can stop. Don't delay. Your teetli
are too valuable.

CHAUTAUQUA STAR
APPEARING AT ILO-ILO
THEATRE NEXT WEEK
In addition to the pictures showing
nt the Ilo-llo Theatre on the flrst'four
nights ol next week, a special added
attraction will be Antonio Mlnervini,
the famous headliner of the Pantages
nnd Hippodrome Circuits.
Antonio Minervlnl was a member of
the Canadian Chautauqua, and is said
to be a pastmaster with his wonderful
instrument, on which he can play anything from ragtime to grand opera.
He served overseas and is a member
of the Vancouver branch of the G. W.
V. A. A striking feature of the performance is that he plays all his own

Awakened from a drunken stupor he
sees his cellmates and in variably
"cuts up some real didoes," to use
the words of the chief. A nicely
scrolled pledge hanging on the door
bears the unsteady signatures of several dozen "old-timers" who have
passed the night in the "terror cell"
and awakened there in the morning,
