DAIRY RECORDS ARE

COURTENAY, Jan. 6.—Thirteen
dair..- animals In the Comox Valley

thc production of fifty pounds or
more of butter fat during the month
of December. Most of the cows averaged well ovcr the required amount
of butter fat. in fnct, the list ls
headed with an animal who produced
71.1 pounds. II Is possible that the
mild, almost Spring-like weather has
helped to keep up the high production, but be Ihat as II may. the climate
of Vancouver Island is evidently ideal

I am asking you to kindly give me
space in your paper to bring before
your reading public and tbe people
resident on this East Coast a matter
which is not only of vital interest
to them, but which the writer feels
wlll, if taken up with enthusiasm,
eventually lead to ti greater development of this part of Vancouver Island. It may be stated at the outset
thnt this letter is not wilt ton with
the desire to serve any particular
political interest, but rather to serve
lhe community at large,
Owing to its geographical situation
Cumberland is, at present, cut off
from the main highway, and thus
gels passed over by the countless*
numbers of tourists who year by year,
seek solace, rest and contentment
amongst the charms qf Vancouver
Island. Tho sign "Cumberland-C'omox

An Old Relic
COMING
A genuine old relic ofthe' sailing
days of 1827 Is used as a chart in
the sequences of the picturization
'of Rafael Sabatlnl's famous novel,
"Captain Blood," which will be shown
at the Ilo-llo Theatre this evening
(Friday) and Saturday evening. Jan.
8 and 9. It Is a globe which J. Warren Kerrigan as Captain Blood uses
to chart the courses of his pirate
ship. "Arabella."
Aside from being authentic as the
Instrument used by the ancient navigators lt holds Interest ln that the
last corrections as to explorations
were made in the year 1827. Alaska
appears under the name of Russian
America, Hawaiian Islands are called
by their original name, the Sandwich
Group. Western United States as
far north as the present Oregon line
and east to the Jlisslppi River Is
given as the property of Mexico.
Only a few of the great cities of the
world today nre given on the globe,
while many of our chief centers of
today are not shown.
"Captain Blood" is a spectacular
production of the days of 1685, with
scenes In England and along the
coast of the British West Indies.
There are scenes of revolt, attack on
Bridgetown, a sea encounter between
the French fleet and Captain Blood's
boat, Arabella, with an explosion nnd
the sinking of the Arabella. Into
lhls atmosphere Is woven the greatest
love slory ever told.

poultrymen on Vancouver Island and
elsewhere.
.Mr. Elford's report, 111 part, Is as
follows:— "Some years ago the
question came up In the Prairie
Provinces and It was felt that tbe
watery condition of eggs was due to
running birds on alkaloid soil. We
endeavored to find out if there was
anything to this by confining birds to
alkaloid soil at Lacombo Station, but
were unable to produce the condition
complained of. Later tho question
came up in Prince Edward Island and
lt was suggested there tllat the cause
was the result of feeding fish offal.

hopes from some that the tide will turn, always
for the better; that cherished desires not realized
last year will be realized this year; it marks the
turning over of a new leaf; the making of new
resolutions (though not always adhered to); and
countless other things.
But yet the question persisted in bringing
itself uppermost in our mind, kept there no doubt
by the unusual quiet pervading the city. In
former years we have seen the New Year ushered
into Cumberland with all the unearthly shrieks
and noises that the genius of mankind can manufacture—expressions of joy at the arrival of the
stranger youth. But all this was mysteriously
missing this New Year's Eve and therein lies
the reason why the question "Is 1926 a welcome
guest in Cumberland?" came to our mind.
There is only one answer to the question—an
obvious one. Cumberland does welcome 1926.
Why, then, was the welcome not given in the
usual manner? Are the citizens losing their
love for such celebrations? No! We think
not. The spirit of fun is still there but the
means for expressing it were lacking. The
spirit was stilled. The lire bell and church bells
and engine whistles were not made available as
in former years, and to add the last straw the
Chief of Police issued a warning that the use of
fireworks larger than crackers was frowned upon
by the authorities and violators would be punished. This, though issued by the Police with
good intentions, namely to prevent fire, was
hardly necessary as for years and years both
fireworks and guns have been used in Cumberland
at the New Year with never a fire and never a
serious accident. They have always been used
with a maximum amount of care. Surely then,
the people ought to be given the right to express
their spirit in any way they think fit at least
one night out of the 365 in the year. We offer
thanks that the good old custom of "first footing"
has not yet been prohibited.
Yes, 1920 is a welcome guest in Cumberland
but his welcome was certainly not a very vociferous one.
sumption that the inference is true. But it is
not true. Men dp go to church in great numbers, and when they don't go, it is not because
the preaching is poor or that it is upon subjects
that have no right in the pulpit. This accusation is unjust. The most interesting, instructive, uplifting discourses given today are heard
from the pulpit.
There are, probably, more women than men
going to church. This is easily explainable.
It is in the nature of things that it should be so.
Women have a more religious nature than men,
and this very fact gives their prominence at
church worship a rich and wholesome meaning.
And then, if there are fewer men than women,
and the difference is not so great as one learns
from outsiders, we should remember that this is
a materialistic age, and it is subjecting many
higher things to the ambitions of the moment.
In this way, home, children, culture, literature,
philosophy, religion, all go.
And so, on a Sunday, men go to their offices
to write letters, talk over business with their
partners, meet some important customer, or
finish something that was left undone on Saturday, and leave it to their wives to attend to the
religious side of life. It is not because they
have become involved with material purposes
and have not yet caught up with the achievements of inventive genius, which are merely the
working out of the beautiful laws that the Almighty has put in the nature of things. Some
day they will and thus reach the happier and the
truer end of life. |
But outside of all creeds and opinions and
faults and criticisms and sermons, if a man goes
to church and becomes one of an audience of
happy and hopeful people—and there is no fairer
expression of civilization anywhere—and enjoys
for an hour the pure atmosphere of better purposes and higher resolves, he is better off for the
experience, even if he hasn't heard a word or
touched a friendly hand. These brooding moments of a man's life are often the heights of it.
MEN AND The question, why don't men
THE CHURCH    go to church? seems to be a
favorite topic for some people much there is to be done and what joy there is
to descant upon, and Lt is treated upon the as- in the doing.
GET INTO In the New Year 1926 more than
THE GAME ever before you will have to take
an interest in your town and your
country. The position which you occupy in
society and in your community, whether it be
successful or unsuccessful, is going to depend a
good deal on your attitude toward the public welfare. You must take an interest in your fellow
man. The selfish, egotistical chap who lives
for himself alone is going to be left to himself
more and more and no man ever made a very
big success without the help and encouragement
of others. So when you start out in this New
Year of 1926 make up your mind that you are
going to get into the game. Do your bit toward making Cumberland more bright and more
cheery. Stamp out that carelessness of mentality which does not give a rap and that selfishness which keeps you shut away from those who
are seeking to do things for others Get into
the game and you will be surprised to find how

they live, and giving them some outlet otherwise than by sea. As a
result of their efforts a roadway has
almost been completed, linking up
Toiino and Ucluelet, some 24 miles
to the soutli. Part of (his road lies
along a wonderful beach 14 miles in
extent and facing tlie open Pacific.
But even when this road is completed
access to this pleasure ground will
be denied except to those who can
afford to ship (hemsclves and their
cars via the Alberni Canal to Ucluelet. The only way. and the natural
one. Is for a road to be constructed
linking up Cumberland with Alberni,
nml thence to (he West Coast giving
an alternate route either by canal or
by road.
During the last summer the Victoria Chamber of Commerce made a
trip up the West Coast, the result of
which decided (hem to advocate tbe
building of a roadway to Bumlield.
It wns suggestctl that ferries could
then ply between that point and
Ucluelet with Ihelr load of tourists
and cars. But those who know Bur-
clay Sound realize thot such a suggestion is not practical, for the trip
would not only be very unpleasant
at times, but expensive as well.
But Victoria has an eye to her own
gain, and she would be the one to
benefit were tho Idea carried out.
Easl would remain East nnd West
West, and never twain would meet,
but Victoria would reap the benefit
by (his lack of union between coast
and coast. Cumberland and Its
neigh hot-hood would all have to
journey by the capital city were It
desirous to make (he trip, and the
economic advantages which should
rightly come this way with the tour-
ists  would go elsewhere.   The Cum-

enough to .see that tentative provls-
I Ion Is at any rate made to allow for

Makes Grain History
::^:^S:;:;.::S:S|:v-
I n handling the Canadian banner grain harvest of
1(125. the Canadian Pacific Railway has established record after record in the marketing and loading of grain so that the figures for the current year
constitute -i record not only for Canada but for the
world
A ll-.t.on. genera! superintendent of transportation of :!i y-*.em. has issued a report covering the
movement of grain on Canad an Pacific western lines
from August 1 up to midnight Friday. December 18.
It is shown that on one day. Friday, November 20.
8,55!'-.(UC bushels of grain were marketed and on
Friday Noven-ber 13, 1,894 cars containing approx-
Imate'j 2 021.000 bushels uf grain were loaded. In
the twenty-four hours of thai day this represents 8*1
cars load d every hour or a little more than one and
one-th rd .-.irs pel  minute.
Usually marketings and loadings take a sudden
drop w Ih the approach of the close of navigation but
th'* yet:i there was little diminution as the report
thi    ■ leadings un December 8 at 1,425 cars.
1--. . -■. uuverse weather condition! in tht month
of October which retarded threshing, marketings up
to December 18 on Canadian Pacific western lines
totalled 160,519,000 bushels of wheat and 36,345.59!)
bushels of coarse grains During the <ame period
118,160 cars carrying approximately 173,104,001)
bushels were loaded. Of this loading, ii.w 0 cars went
to Vancouver, and a considerable amount was absorbed by interior flour mills, but the great bulk went
to the head of the lakes, Fort William and Port
Arthur, passing through the Winnipeg yards, including North Transcona, the largest individual yards in
the world having a capacity of 10,000 cars.
From there the movement was over a 420 mile
stretch of double track line to the lake front and on
thia run some records were also made, the highest
number of loads moved eastward in any one day
being 1,640. The daily average waa in number! of
four figures.
The arrangement! made by tht Canadian Pacific
Railway for the conveyance of tht crop worked
smoothly and there was not a single cue of car shortage justifying the provision! made In tht way of

No. 21—Tom's height was six feet
and his cane 36'A inches long, and
John's height was 6 feet 11 1-145 ins.
and the length of Mb cane 36% ins.
No. 22—It would be a tie if it were
a straight-away race, but in running
to the stake and back (75 yards)
each half of the race would be 112%
teet, and the dog would be compelled
to make 23 leaps to the stake, and
the same number ln returning, which
would be 46 leaps of 5 feet each, so
the dog goes 230 teet ln all, a waste
of 5 feet. The cat would go over and
back in 76 leaps, which would call
for 228 foet, so tabby wins the race
by two feet.
No. 23—The Giants were the victors, because If they, first at bat, had
the 2 score, thc Dwarfs, according to
usage, would not have continued
after scoring 3 points.

Wishing farewell and hon voyage
to the celebrated writer of the
Scarlet Pimpernel, a bouquet of
tcarlet pimpernels was presented to

Motor tourists from the United
States brought J150.000.000 in revenue to Canada in 1925, according
to estimates of government officials. This sum is equal to a
quarter of the value of the
Dominion's wheat crop and approximates the value of the annual
mining output of Ontario, Quebec
and British Columbia combined.
More than 2,000,000 American
automobiles, it ia estimated, have

A recent epidemic of motor accidents, five of which occurred in ont
night, though luckily none of them
proved to be fatal, elicited the following editorial comment from the
Montreal Sur. "That five drivers
of automobiles should drive their
cart into moving trains within a
period of twenty-four hours in
Canada would seem to indicate that
carelessness is the main cause of
accidents. The location of level
crossings is either well-known or
clearly indicated at a distance that
gives even a fast driver ample time
to stop. At many such crossings
bells automatically ring as trains
art approaching. At others, bar
gates are 1st down. Some are open
—these almost entirely in the country districts. But despite all
safeguards, warnings, signals, and
precautions, accidents continue to
happen at level crossings with an
alarming consistency. In seme incidents, indeed, it almost looks at
though the drivers were determined]
to defy all attempts to ensurt]
caution." The paper calls for can-j

night classes of the public school for
the past month or two. The spokesmen Inst night on behalf of n grunt
for the baud dwere Messrs. J. X.
McLeod, V. L, Andertoon, II. Bramley and G. W. Stubbs. It was Indicated that the council was ready to
appoint a committee to go Into the
matter with the promoters of the
band. After some discussion Aid.
Cooke, McKenzie and Mayor Duncan
were appointed in this connection
and il was also decided that a gran!
of $*ii>n be made provided n like amount he raised from other sources.
This sum will go towards the pur-
chnse of musical Instruments which
would remain the property of the city.
City Clerk C. S. Wood submitted an
Interesting    summary    of  the  city's
llnancial standing as at the end  of
the year just passed.   This statement
showed the liquid state of the city's
linances to be In a very much better,
condition than It has ever been since
its    Incorporation.     Whereas    there
was at the beginning of the year an
amount  outstanding of $11.800. there
was now only $.*i000 nfter paying nil
current   expenses   of  the   year.   The
receipts   showed   that   nearly   $3,0001
over the amquht of the tax levy bail
actually  been   received.   This   happy
condition lias been brought about by J
the receipt of ovcr $4.0110 of arrears !
in   taxes.   The  1925  laxes   had  been
actually collected within ten per cent ,
of the total hy the end of the year, j
the actual  amount    collected    being
$14,138 and the amount levied $11,316.
The receipts frmo the Water Dept.
had also exceeded the amount estimated, the figures being $8,200 and
$8.Ii3l. Courtenay's share of the 1925
liquor profits under the new system
wore very considerably Increased, being $2,439 as against $1,100 a year
ago. Altogether the substantial sum
of $3,700 Iiad been received In excess
of lhe amount estlmafed.
On the expenditue side of the summary It was noticed that all depart1
menls had kept within lhe various
estimates; although il might appear
that the Board of Works hnd exceeded its estimate owing to the inclusion
of some of the new undertakings.
The Dank loan amounted to less than
half that of last year und no loan
had been carried since July. Of the
city utilities the Electric Light and
Power system is an outstanding feature und the revenue from this source
Is going a long way towards carrying
the cost of all public work within the
municipality. By-laws to authorize
j the purchase of tho public auto park
at a cost of $1,100 and the purchase
of public weigh scales at a cost of
$1,50(1 passed thlcr first and second
readings at this meeting and will be
put before the rate payers ln the form
of a plebiscite at the coming municipal elections on the 14th of this
month.
Before adjournment, the resignations of Aldermen Fielder and Cooke
were considered and duly accepted:
and nominations to fill the vacancies
thus    caused   will  be  called   for  on
Monday next which will lie nomination  day.

According to G. F. Tomsott, superintendent of the Saskatchewan
Branch of the Employment Service
of Canada, about 43,000 harvest
hands were brought into Saskatchewan and distributed ovcr the province to harvest and thresh thu 1925
crop.
J. Stapleton, of Regina, ordered
two springer spaniel puppies from a
dog agent in Liverpool on October
Oth. Thirty days later they were
delivered to him after a voyage and
journey totalling 4,500 miles, the
shipment going at the rate of 150
miles a day. This constitutes a record for speed.
Constituting a record for Canada
and probably for the world, 3,447,-
624 bushels of all grains were marketed on the lines of the Canadian
Pacific Railway in Western Canada
on November 19. The nearest approach to this figure was the 3,400,-
000 bushels marketed on October 18,
1915, in the year of one of the greatest crops the Dominion has ever
harvested.
Reports received at Canadian Pacific Railway headquarters tliis week
Bhow that four more accidents occurred In cases where motorists drove
their cars into trains already in the
process of crossing levels. This
brings the total of accidents of this
kind up to thirty for the year. In
all four cases the automobiles were
damaged while the motorists escaped
with minor injuries.
Eighty-seven black foxes, vnlued
»t about $100,000, shipped in 44
Vates, arrived at Montreal last week
Ji-om Buffalo. Twenty-five of the
animals were prize-winners at the
Black Fox Exhibition which con-
,   eluded last week, and were on con-
Fsignment to the Borestone Mountain
Fox Ranch at Onawa, Maine.
The Far East has heard about
Canadian apples. Thc Canadian
Pacific liner Empress of Asia carried 8,000 boxes of apples when
clearing out of Vancouver last week.
General trade conditions between
Canada and the Far East are quite
healthy as there was also on board
the vessel 800 tons of Canadian flour,
100 automobiles and 100 tons of Alberta beef.
