FRIDAY, MAY 81, 192H.
Large Crowds attend
Cumberland Empire
Day Celebration
Finest Parade Ever Seen in the City—Many Keen Contests in
Track Events Witnessed—Cricket Game
Called Oil.
Aa predicted in these columns during the past few weeks, the Empire
Day parade proved to be about the
best ever Heen in Cumberland. The
usual 24th of .May weather prevailed
and whilst the cricket and tennis
matches had to be called off on account of showers, parade iill(t sports
were held aud carried off in excellent
manner. The finance committee had
met with generous response during
their two weeks canvas of the townspeople and all who attended were
treated with the utmost hospitality.
The parade left the city hall about
9.30, the Courtenay Fire Department
being accored the honor of heading
the parade, followed by the Cumherland Fire Department. Many mor-;
cars and floats took part in the parade
this year than lias been the case for
many years and the amount of time
spent on decorating the various entries must have been tremendous. Tlie
May Queen's oat in white and lilac
looked very pretty with the Queen of
May and her retinue. Other floats ami
decorated ears included Boy Scouts.
Mumford's Grocery. City Meat Market,
2 floats, advertising Burns and Swifts
products. General Hospital new ambulance, Hariing & Ledingham advertising auto service, a float by Mumford
and Finch advertising Lake Cumher-
land, Girl Guides of Royston, repro-
eentlng Cumberland centre St. John's
Ambulance Association. Imperial Oil
Fraternal Order of Eagles, Private
decorated cars Included J, Richardson,
T. Bates' and Misses Sehl and Grieves
and a Whippet car display by Mr.
John H. Comeron, local dealer. Wel-
don Stacey and Denis Shields had a
beautiful display, having a model
house mounted In two bicycles. A
large contingent of school children
and others, made up a very good parade.. Very much In the limelight was
a group representing the popular movie series "Tho Collegians," mounted
iu a car of the Noah's Ark type. Several well known members of Cumberland Rod and Gun club were portrayed by a number of school boys,
their Impersonations being well and
truly represented.
On arival at the Recreation ground
the Judging for prizes fn tiie parade
was commenced, the various judges
having a difficult time. However, after
due consideration the following were
awarded prizes.
The prize for the Best Advertising
Float was won by Messrs. Finch and
Mumford whose entry, advertising
"Lake Cumberland" showed a great Ingenuity and represented a lot of hard
work. "Cumberland's Playground" was
the caption which headed the float,
which was built ln the form of a boat
while Inside, a group of characters
portrayed the activities of campers on
the lake.
The Best Decorated Automobile prize
was won by Miss Audrey Grieve of
Courtenay. The car was a profusion
of purple lilac and yellow broom and
was mounted by four beautifully modeled butterflies. Special mention must
be made of an entry by Miss Florence
Sehl, which was very popular with the
crowds. The car was a veritable basket of moss filled with lilacs which made
a very pleasing display.
Calford's "Collegians" won the prize
as the best comic group. Dressed in
their snappy college clothes the "gang"
were riding in a very dilapidated and
shaky car, on which were chalked various witty sayings which kept the
spectators highly amused.
The prize for the Best decorated Bicycle was won by Denis Shields and
Weldon Stacey and has already been
described. It was the only entry in
this group.

Highland Dancing
Big Feature of
Cumberland, May 27.—A feature of
the afternoon programme of the 24th
of May celebration in Cumberland was
the amateur dancing competition
which was watched by a large crowd.
There were mr.ny entries for these
events and some excellent dancing
was displayed. Miss Katherlne Moore
of Courtenny gave an exhibition of
the Sailor's Hornpipe and the Sean
Triubbhns. which was done with remarkable finesse.
The winners of the dancing events
were as follows:
Senior Highland Fling—1st, silver
medal, Sadie Trotter! second, bronze
medal, Margaret Brown.
Senior Sword Dance—1st, silver
medal, Mary Slewart; second, bronze
medal, Margaret Brown.
Junior Highland Fling—1st, silver
medal, Wilda Handlen; second, bronze
medal, Dorothy Brown.
Junior Sword Dance—1st, silver
medal, Doris Macdonald; second,
bronze medal, Wilda Handlen.
Sean Truibblins—1st, gold ring, Sadie
Trotter; second, gold ring, Margaret
The medals for the dancing were
donated by the St. Andrew's Society,
the Burns Club, Mrs. Moore and Messrs. Walter Brown, Percy Booth and
E. L. Macdonald. Piper Stewart supplied the music for the dancing.
All of the dancers were the pupils
of Miss Gwen Noel's dancing classes
and considering that practically all of
thc entrants had only taken lessons
in this art during the past year, It reflects great credit not only to the
teacher, but also to the pupils.
Monday, June the 3rd, being
the King's birthday and a gen-
ernl holiday throughout Canada, all stores fn Cumberland
will be closed for tbe day. Store.'
will be open until the usual hour
Saturday evening.

Beautiful Lake
To Be Known As j
Lake-Cumberland i
Local Board uf Trade Working
Hard to Have Name
That beautiiul sheet ot' water, whicti
has been known for many years as
Comox Lake, will, tl' Lhe Cumberland
Hoard ol Trade is successful in its
application to Iiie powers that be, be
henceforth known as Lake Cumberland. During tlie pasl tew years, and
the idea Is growing with every passing year, people resident in distant
parts of this province have been under the impression that Comox Lake
is situate at the village of Comox. As
a matter of fact It fs thirteen miles
from that, famous village. In the early
days it. was known as Puntledge Lake
but for some unaccountable reason
was called Comox Lake, and by continuous use of the name "Comox" it
has been un established name on all
government maps, The Idea of the
board o ftrade is to educate tbe people
Into calling it Lake Cumberland so
that in the years to come, even if the
Department do not see their way clear
to change the name, it will by usage
become known as Lake Cumberland,
The board of trade would like to hear
tell of all Cnmherlanders when speaking of the lake to call it Lake Cumberland . Talk it lo all your friends
write it In your letters back home and
ou every conceivable occasion call it
Lake Cumheiland.
The following letter from tlie local
board of trade Wfls addressed  tothe
chief geographer at Victoria:
Dear Sir:-
At a meeting of tbe Cumberland
Hoard of Trade, held ou Tuesday 14th
.May, 1029, I was instructed to write
you with reference to the Puntledge
Lake, or as is commonly known as
Comox Lake.
This lake Is situated about two
miles from the city of Cumberland.
The principal mine of the Canadian
Colliery Company Is on the shore of
the lake.and the Canadian Colliery
(D.) Ltd. Railway runs from the town
to the lake, also there Isa road from
the town to lhe lake at the end of
which quite :■ iiuru>'ci'~of"Vuni'.)(.rlaml
people keep boats.
Also there isa new road now under
construction from ihe town to a point
known as Jock's Point, further up th.?
Lake, where the city have been granted a number of acres for a psrk site.
Here a wharf and floal will he built,
so It Is easily seen that the people
of Cumberland nre very much interested In the development ofthe Lake
as an attraction for tourists, but with
the name Puntledge or Comox Lake
the location Is misleading, so it was
decided to endeavor to have the name
officially changed to "Lake Cumberland", and we are refjuesting yon,
Sir, to endeavour io have this done.
Thanking you in anticipation for
the favour.
Yous   very  truly,
Secretary Board of Trade.
A letter in reply lo the above was
received from Mr. Aitken the chief
geographer at Victoria, together with
u short history ot the district, taken
from Dr. Robert Brown's report.
From the report ii appears that In
18C4 the lake was named by Dr, Brown
Puntledge Lake, bin Ihat somewhere
between the years 1S72 and 1884 by
usage or for some oilier reason of
which there *« no record, the name of
the lake, became Comox, and so it
has appeared throughout the mapping
on record since that time. As mentioned at an executive meeting of the
local hoard of trail-' held this week,

Application Filed
For Power Rights in
Powell River Section
Headquarters of Mining and Power Circles Astounded by Application—Will Smelter Be Located on Mainland?
Victoria, B. ('., May :'0th—Consolidated Smelters filed application today for power rights in Lois River in the Powell River
secton lor smelter necessities. The application has caused a
sensation in the headquarters of mining and power circles. The
application of this strong company is generally interpreted as
meaning either that Consolidated has chosen a smelter location
on the mainland coast or that it seeks leverage with the Briish
Columbia Railway Company to secure better terms for smelter
power from Campbell River, the smelter being recognized as the
best industrial offering possibly associated with the British Columbia Electric Railway application for the Elk Kails rights, and
the government having announced irrelevantly that it would not
grant the Campbell River power to any corporation not guarantee-
nig industrial utilization on an extensive scale.

Joe Reese Inking a party up the lake
appeared on lhe scene and on being
informed of the close proximity cl fie

for his rifle. As he approached on
his return, the big cat evidently got
frightened at the noise of the speed
boat and attempted to climb the rock,
and bad almost reached the top when
Mr. Reese fired. The firsl shot landed
a few inches ahead of the cougar
which made him stop, the next shot
hit him hie th shoulder, dropping
him right into ibe water. At ihat he

Reese made doubly sure by planting
another shot in tho back or the cougar's head- On examination, ibe cat
proved lo he a real Iijk fellow, measuring six feet five from lip lo tin
Mr. Reese intends to keep tbe skin

needs or it could be used to operate a
smelter and copper refinery of substantial size, large enough to handle
Ihe copper output of leading coast
mines, experts here stated.
Premier Tolmie aud officials of the
mines department said they had re-
reived no Information from the Consolidated about its smelter plans, since
J. J. Warren, president of the company, announced some time ago that
it was prepared to go ahead with the
construction of a copper refining plant
If the leading copper producers would
agree to use It. It has heen under-
stoij thai the company was working
on its smelter project with Its usual
policy of silence, ami announcement
that it is ready now to secure necessary power, caused no surprise. The
fact that It is seeking this power on
the mainland, and not nn Vancouver
Island, from Campbell River, however,
was entirely unexpected.

THE reason why some towns grow is because
there are men of push and energy in them
who are not afraid to spend their time and
money to boom their town. They erect good
buildings and use every means in their power to
induce people to locate in their city. During the
past few weeks an old landmark on the main
street has been dismantled and in its place has
risen an up-to-date building, very much improving
the particular block. It has been the rendezvous
of many of our citizens during the long spring
evenings and many have been the comments on
its appearance. Now that the building is about
completed business will  lie carried on  with  a
greater zest than ever before. That the building
of this new block will induce others to improve
their buildings goes without saying. It is such
enterprse and everyone pulling together that
makes a progressive town—and don't let the fact
escape your memory.
To hear every person saying something about
its people and its interest is the surest, easiest
and quickest way to make a town attractive to a
stranger. Talk up your town if you would have
it do well. Talk up your town if you would have
others come to you. Talk up your town if you
would feel an interest in it, and have its people
feel an interest in you. There is no better way to
do it. When you come in contact with strangers
talk up the most potent agency ever set in motion
for helping your town.
To the enterprising firm making the alterations
on our main street, we wish for them increased
business and continued prosperity, and may it,
lead to others doing things along the same lines—
then watch Cumberland grow.

Danger Signals
We have, from time to time, drawn
the attention of our readers to danger
to offer, because early treatment will
mean, in most eases, cure, or at least
no further damage. M' one relies on
his own skill lo decide as to the need
for medical care, this may mean, iu
many   cases,   advanced   disease   with
et. beautifully decorated and laden
with gifts. Mrs. Melkle opened each
package an dthanke dull present.
Mrs, Johnston announced that a
well known Cumberland couple had
just returned from ihelr honeymoon
in Seattle and asked them to join the

Most of the diseases from which
mankind suiters are not of the sudden, acute type, tlie majority of them
are gradually developed over a considerable period of time. In most
cases, tlilcr presence is not suspected
until there is some symptom which
sends the sufferer to his doctor for
examination. That, symptom was a
danger signal which the patient recognized. There wero, however, hefore that, danger signals which the

An uneducated Scotsman made a
fortune, One day he and an acquaintance were talking, when the lat'er
said to old Duncan.
"You dont' know en ought to go indoors when it rains. Why, you can't
even spell 'bird.' "
"B-u-r-d," said Duncan.
"I tell you you don't know anything
Why, If you had to spell to make a
living you'd have been dead years
ago. I'll bet you a fiver you can't
spell 'bird', "
"I'll tak' ye." replied Duncan.
After the money was pirt down
Duncan said. "B-l-r-d."
"That'n not the way you spelled it
the llrst time."
"I wisna bettin' then."

In loving memory of our dear son,
Ronald Win. Derbyshire, who passed
away at Cumberland May 31st, 1922.
We think of you dear sonny,
With grief that is deep and true.
No one knows tlle silent heartache
That makes us long for you.
What would we give your hand tc
Your patient face to see;
To  hear  your  voice,  to  see  your
As in the days that used to he.
Always sadly missed by mother,
daddy nnd sister, Norma. •
