|S. Bevis Escapes
Serious Injury
Car Goes Over Embankment—
After Killing Dog
Stanley Bevls, while driving along
Comox Road, near the Nanaimo
. Foundry on Sunday, had a narrow
escape from serious Injury. A dog
ran in front of lib car just as he had
turned down off Front street,, and Mr.
Bevls swerved to the side, but not
before he had struck and killed the
dog. Some children were playing on
the .pathway, and to avoid these, the
driver was compelled to run over the
embankment, where the oar fell some
ten feet, and was badly wrecked.
Fortunately, Mr, Bevls and his companion escaped uninjured.
A resident ot Cumberland received
a letter on Monday evening of tills
week, January 23rd, posted In Victoria ait 1 p.m. on Wednesday, January
11th. Twelve days to come from Victoria to Cumberland is a little bit
thick. As the letter only bears two
date marks on It, the Victoria one
and the Cumberland one of January
23rd, It Is rather puzzling to know just
where the delay occurred. As the
communication was of an Inmportant
nature, the party Involved Is going
round town with' a lovely grouch on
■and has put It up to the Victoria
party to look Into the matter.

The Burns' Banquet held In the
War Veterans' Hall last Wednesday
was very well attended, about ninety
or one hunderd people sitting down
to a most delicious repast. The room
was prettily decorated with gold and
blue streamers, while a picture of the
beloved poet was hung at the head of
the liable, draped with the Canadian
and British flags.
After the chairman Mr. J. L. Brown
had asked the blessing, the haggis
ceremony was performed, the dish
being carried in by Miss Verna Murray in Scottish, teostume, following
Piper Stewart of Courtenay.
A lengthy and enjoyable programme
had been arranged to follow the "dinner, the first item being a toast to the
King, proposed by 'the chairman. Interspersed with the toasts were musical selections, much appreciated by
the gathering. The first of these was
a vlollni solo "They're Far Far Awa,'"
by Mr. James Walker.
The toast to the Immortal Memory
of Burns was proposed by Mr. R.
"I feel greatly honored this evening
in being chosen to propose this toast
to the Immortal Memory of Scotland's
greatest hard, and I am afraid that I
cannot do justice to such a subject.
Yet, however, a worshipper we may
be at the shrine ot Burns, each can
impart a little Individuality to the subject. There arc many gatherings,
such as this all over the world today,
each being a bright ray radiating from
one centre, or common point, and it
these rays be traced to their source
it Is found that they emanate from
Scotland's greatest poet, Burns.
However, the world may treat us we
can always look to Barns for new
thoughts and courage. His thoughts
are alive today. What Is Che secret ot
his works? This is found in the poem
"To me ye spark of natures fire,
That's all the leavening I require"
Sometimes during his career this
spark was fanned to a white heat, and
some of his best poems were written
at these times. Nothing was too small
or insignificant for his notice. Burns
communed directly with nature and
such Is shown In his works. Even
In this world of science and machinery we can yet get In touch with nature through Burns' works. His
poems portray the better side ot life
the thoughts being recorded In a simple home. Even though his lot was
stormy he could find sympathy for
the lower animals.
His greatest picture, Is perhaps given to us in the poem "A Cotter's Saturday Night." This will ever remain
with us, demonstrating as It does the
beautiful atmosphere of home life,
that which In a great many homes of
today is now lost. Today our actions
are all governed by different controlling bodies. Such was not the case at
Cotter's Saturday Night. Lessons
were taught by example, and by this
means individuality was developed.
Such scenes as those portrayed by
Burns will make any true Scotchman
love his country.
The Scots, are a proud race and
the world has come to recognize this
when we have come to truly understand Burns, we get this pride. If his
teachings were taught today, most
of the world's text books could be cast
Burns believed In Universal Brotherhood. That was his Ideal. Since
then this has become an established
tact progress has been made and nations'are combining to work for the
uplift of mankind.
That famous poem on "Tamoshan-
ter," gives us an Idea of Burns' natural humor and It also teaches a lesson. Everthlng becomes real to us
when we read this work.
Much criticism has been given that
Burns attacked the religious bodies
of his time. This Is entirely wrong.
The poet was bred in a religious atmosphere and has never said a word
against religion—to the reverse. He
exposed hypocrisy and deceit to such
an extent that many religious bodies
at that time purged their ceremonies.
Burns loved his country second to
none. He wrote the national anthem.
He sang ot her beauties, weaving sentiment around her, forming a strong
link between all Scots, and the Motherland.
There are some who speak against
Bums others Introduce him with an
apologetic air. We can afford to be
amused at this. The poet commands
respect both as a poet and as a man.
. We can thank Heaven for the great
gift of Burns and be proud that we
are made of the same clay as he."
; Song, "Star of Robbie Burns," Mrs.
R. Walker.
Song, "Cottage Where Burns Was
Born," Mr. R. Goodall.
The second toast was proposed by
Mr. J. Sutherland to "Bonnie Jean."
"We have already listened to a resume of the qualities ot Burns and
now 1 am to speak about his beloved
wife, Bonnie Jean. Jean Armour was
born In Mauchllne, her father being
a stone-mason. Jean was wood by
Burns, but her father prohibited the
marriage. Shortly alter this Burns
,was passing through Mauchllne and
attended there a village dance. In the
middle of this dance his dog came to
him, and Bums laughingly made the
remark that he wished some girl
would love him as well as his dog did.
A few days later Jean was bleaching
clothes on the village green when
Burns' dog ran over the clothes. She
Immediately spoke to Burns about it,
•In none too gentle a manner, also re
minding Burns of the remark made
at the dance. Ever afterwards Jean
was the lass for Burns.
When the poet proposed he was far
from being well off but later wheat he
went to Edingburgh, he met with the
best in the land. Thore his genius
was recognized and honored, and
when he returned to the village he
was in the possession of five hundred
All .through Bums' life Jean proved to be a true Scottish wife. She
lived for many years after his death
making his memory a credH. to Scotland.
The memory of Jean will live as
long as songs are sung.
I have no hesitation in saying that
it Burns had married any other lass,
I doubt If he would have won Scottish
hearts as he has done.
Jean was not honored for her work.
Day by day she went on doing the
work of the home in silence. Tonight
she Is given credit.
Let us go to Dunfries and kneel to
the monument of Burns, and also the
home where Jean spent her life. Let
us drink to the Immortal Memory of
Bonnie Jean.
Duet, "Mary," Mrs. C. Spooner and
Mr. R. Goodall.
Song, "Bonnie Lass of Ballochmlle,"
Mrs. G. Johnston.
Mr. T. Graham then proposed a
toast to "The Motherland."
"It Is a great pleasure to me to be
at this gathering, and to join my
countrymen, in their appreciation of
Scotland the land of our birth, has
given to the world many famous men:
men of science, history , literature,
art and commerce. Scotland is famous for Its struggle for liberty and
freedom. Scotchmen have died on
every field where there is a fight for
right. Remember the old heroes of
Scotland, Wallace, Bruce and Douglas, and also those of today, such as
Sir Collin Campbell. Men of Scotch
origin have planted the flag of the
British Empire around the globe.
Of all the poets, Burins name ranks
the first.
The Scotch were always wanderers
in every land and clime. The sons
of Scotland have done much in the
pioneering of Canada. Over 100 years
ago MacKenzie explored the great
north and Simon Fraser sailed down
the now named Fraser River.
The resources of this great country
of Canada are open for advance.
Scotchmen have been In the foreground wherever progress has already
been made and have been privllaged
to become citizens of Canada. Everywhere the sons of Scotland must know
of the work of their countrymen. As
long as the Motherland sends her sons
to Canada, Canada's strength will be

Hamilton, Ontario,
January 23, 1928.
To the Editor of
The Cumberland Islander:-
I am glad the Department of the Interior is realizing the terribly rapid
depletion of our raw forest products,
and is becoming alarmed about future
supply for her own Industries. I trust
this alarm will bring definite restraining action on the general export of
our raw natural resources at the approaching Session of Parliament.
The export of 1,500,000 cords of raw
pulp wood during the last year
brought us $15,000,00, which probably
went to apply on our National Debt
reduction of 66,000,000 In 9 months,
or $82,000,000 for the year.
Now if the same pulp wood had
been manufactured into finished paper
products In Canada, It would have
brought $90,000,000 at least, and for
higher grades of finished products it
would have brought towards $150,000-
000, which source alone would have
more than provided the $82,000,000
reduction of our National Debt this
year, as well as distributing an additional $100,000,000, largely In wages
in Canada.
Our foreat products last year amounted to $475,000,000, of which we
exported $283,000,000, which, If all
were manufactured here, would have
sufficient additional money to pay off
our National Debt In a few years.
I note the Alogma Steel Co. proposes to again use Canadian' iron ore
which used to be so popular in Canada, but in recent years Canada has
not used a ton of Canadian ore, except any small quantity that Bresco
might have used, running in a semi-
Idle way. Why the disuse of Canadian
ore of which we have more and better
quality than any other country In the
world? Do freight rates have any
bearing or effect on this?
Why haul United States ore 200
miles at 50c a ton and charge Alberta coal $11.00 a ton for a 2,500 mile
haul which should be 50 per cent less
per net ton.
Why should Canada buy such large
quantities of raw materials and finished products from the U. S. when
we have a super abundance ot both
at home?
If the $7,000,00 worth of raw
bestos we shipped to the U. S last year
had been manufactured into finished
products in Canada before being shipped, we would have received $77,000,-
000 for It, the difference would have
been spent in Canada, largely in
wages, etc., and its extra money product alone would have paid off that
$66,000,000 of our National Debt.
If our raw materials shipped to the
United States last year had been manufactured in Canada, it would have
necessitated an additional $1,000,000
being expended in wages, etc., here,
and necessitated our having an additional million population. |
If our nickel mattee, copper and|
other mtnnerals had been converted
into finished products in Canada last
year, it would have brought us many
millions of dollars, a larger per cent
of which would have been spent In
wages here.
Why not double our population
quickly in this way, rather than continue to pursue our usual immigration
policy, with small results.
In fact, if our raw materials which
are now exported were manufactured
in Canada for the next ten years it
would easily pay off our National
Debt and double our population.
I hope the Government will forecast
their intention of doing something
along this line In the speech from the
throne, a few days hence, but If they
don't then 1 hope the opposition will
propose an amendment embodying
these principles so they will be discussed, and that most members will

One of the most beautiful and Impressive homes in Southern California provides the baegground for mosi
of the exterior scenes in "Cheating
Cheaters," the Universal - Jewell
which will be the feature at th Ilo-
Ilo Theatre this week end and at the
Gaiety the following week end.
The story is set in New York's underworld and the fashionable suburbs
of the great metropolis of the east.
The home used was that of W, R
Jewett. noted automobile manufacturer, who owns one of the wonder
spots in Pasadena. The beautiful
mansioon wish its colorful and picturesque surroundings is quite typical
of that section of the state. The home
was rented for the filming of this picture, the money received being donated to charity organizations hy the
"Cheating Cheaters has besides its
gorgeous settings, a capable all-star
cast; including Betty Compson, playing the feminine role, Kenneth Harlan
taking the male lead, Sylvia Ashton,
Maude TurnerGordon, E. J. Ratcllffe,
Erwln Connelly. Eddie Grlbbon, Lu-
clen  Llttlefleld and Cesare Gravlna.

"Down the Stretch," King Bagot's
Universal Jewell production showing
at the Ilo-Ilo this Monday, Jan. 30 and
at the Gaiety Tuesday, Jan. 31, depicts life behind the scenes at one of
America's largest race tracks and is
one of the most entertaining pictures
of the year.
"Down the Stretch" is a story of a
Jockey, excellently portrayed by Robert Agnew, who In the face of almost
Impossible odds, wins the hand of the
girl he loves, Marian Nixon, and extricates himself from a maze of befuddled circumstances. There are no
melodranatlc situations, no mortage
to be paid off, but the entire picture
is chuck full of real human Interest
and heart throbs.
King Bagot has gone to great
length to get realism in this picture
Instead of the usual studio horse race,
'.he entire cast went on location at the
Belmont race track and some of the
fastest horses In the country were
borrowed from their owners and
trainers for tne shots. Lady In Black
'.he mare ridden by Agnew, is one of
he best two-year olds in the country.
Ini addition to Agnew and the char-
nlng Miss Nixon, the oast embraces
t number of featured players, includ-
'ng Ward Crane, Otis Harlan, Virginia True Boardman and Ena Gregory.
Hollywood Is coming to know beau-
Iful Sharon Lynn as one of the most
iromlslng of leading women now enraged in making moving pictures.
Despite her wide reputation Miss Lynn
is a comparatively newcomer to the
screen. She has not played In any
large number of films, but her work
has been so outstanding in every single attempt, that she is much in demand for featured roles.
One of her first parts after being
signed by F.B.O. was the feminine
lead in "Aflame In the Sky." Taking
Into consideration the fact that MIsb
Lynn stepped right out of musical
comedy Into pictures without a break
having been discovered while in the
chorus of "Sunny." popular musical
show, her work in the picture was remarkable. Later followed a success
in "Clancy's Kosher Wedding," and
finally came her big role in "The Cow-
ard,"opposite Warner Baxter.
Direotors are unanimous In claim-!
ing Miss Lynn to be one of the most1
thoroughly capable young women In
moving piotures today.    Her  future

Cumberland H. S. Chronicler
Education in the Schools
We have in the past written considerably about the value of a high
school education in general and Its
value to tlle local students In particular. We propose to take up this
question again.
We believe the coarse of study is
totally  unsuited to the needs of the
students    attending   the    local   higli
school,   To illustrate our contention
the curriculum is as follows; Algebra
Geometry. Arithmetic. Latin, French.
History. Chemisiry. English Compos
ition,   Literature and   Physics.    This
is admirably suited to those who in
tend to take up a profession in which
a    thorough    knowledge    ot    higher
mathematics   Is   a   necessity.     Some
may desire a classic education—they
will find Latin aind French suited to
their needs.   We are sure that In all
the years the present curriculm has
has bee.i  in force, scarcely a dozen
students have found it suitable or In
any way beneficial to the pursuance
of a career.    To the majority of the
pupils it has been a waste of time and
money.   We are aware that the course
of study is based on the one In force
at the U.B.C.   Consequently unless s
pupil  is going to attend U.B.C, his
meagre knowledge gained is useless
to the  pursuance of any particular
career.    He  will go Into  the  world
with a  nodding acquaintance of Al-
bebra, Latin and French.    The only
subjects which will be of use to him
and of vital importance are; History.
Higher  Arithmetic,  Composition  and
Literature.    It is generally conceded
that in order to succeed in this commercial   world   of   keen   competition,
one must specialize in his chosen profession.   In view ot this fact the subjects enumerated above are of the utmost Importance in whatever field of
endeavor   the  student  chooses.    One
frequently sees advertisements pointing  out  the   great  necessity   of  the
ability to speak correot English and
how to say exactly what one means in
clear concise language.   The importance of this Is not exaggerated, especially in the business world, no matter
what your profession may lie.   A busi
ness man of today is judged not only
by his business integrity, but also on
his ability to say clearly what he
wishes to say. This may sound absurd and simple, but try It—It's easier
said than done. The best means to
accomplish this is in high school
througli a greater and more Intensive
study of English. This Is not so much
the duty of the teacher, but of the Ed-
eational Board to specify that it
should be done, as was mentioned In
the school paper before. We used to
hold debates every week end but unfortunately this has been discontinued
The reason was printed several Issues
ago. This need not prevent the pupils
from holding debates every Friday

supervision of some Interested citizen.

The toasit to "Our Adopted Country,"
was propesd by Mayor Alex Maxwell,
"Very few realize how great a country Canada Is and how vast are her
resources.    These are In reality the
greatest in the world.   Canada Is larger than the U.S.A., and also larger
j than the whole of Europe.   There Is
l not one province but can  boast of
some individuality.    The wheat pro-
i duoing countries of the world are at
I tile present time   falling   behind In
I production and are beginning to look
to Canada.    If the settlers continue
ito come from Britain, Canada can be
kept a white country.   That Is what
is needed to promote prosperity.   After the toast was drunk, the company
joined in singing "O Canada."
i    Song, "Afton Water," Mrs. C. Spoon
The toast "To the Lassies," 'was
most ably proposed by Dr. G. K. Mac-
naughton,  causing much merriment.
"This toast deserves an honorable
place at any banquet, for from the
ladles' Burns received Inspirations
for many of his poems.
Perhaps the first toast was drunk
by Adam and Eve although we cannot
quite say In what beverage. After
Adam had secured a supply of mountain dew and filled two receptacles
he probably asked Eve If she would
not care to drink, to which Eve replied, "I do not care A-dam If I do."
Darwin has set forth his theories
on the decent of man but no one has
yet had the nerve to write a book on
th decent of woman. However, every
married man knows that execept on
payday very few women have de-cent
This dew Is not related to the
Scotch mist.
As no one has decided to write on
the decent of woman, we must 'turn
to the scriptures. After the Lord had
created all else he made man to live
in the garden. However, he became
lonesome and grew paler and thinner
each day. Pink pills for pale people,
and a few bottles of Lydia Plnkham's
Vegetable Compound were tried without success, so as it was a case of
kill or cure the Lord pescribed woman, a wife.
As this is leap year It would be well
for some of the bachelors to try this
medicine, but It must not be shaken,
and only onet spoon is allowed before
The first patient of all time was Adam, in the Garden hospital. The original par value of women was, to
speak In stock market terms, one bone
but this stock has Increased many
times since then.
Now, as Eve was created there was
the question of dress, she might have
used a rose petal, a gossamere butterfly wing, or a hat trimmed with
humming birds also sllkwork stockings. However, she chose a useful
evryday dress, the tig leaf
Man scientists say, has three kinds
ot ribs, true false and floating. Woman must have been made from the
After a time, there was big row In
the family and Eve started to raise
Cain. One afternoon she had been at
afternoon tea and, as old woman, stayed longer than she should have done,
not being able to And the can-opener
when she returned , she fed Adam on
green apples. From then she was
the tall of man.
The virtues and graces of Scotch
lassies, have been well told by Burns.
Women are great forces for good
and evil. In every tragedy and comedy, a women takes the leading part.
The Scotch are tamed for their
strength ot character and are In the
vanguard ot all human progress.
Burns desired beauty of character
as well as figure. Now I ask you all
to rise with me and drink to the lassies.
The toast was responded to by Mrs.

J. H. Cameron. She thanked Dr MacNaughton and reminded him that If
woman was made trom a rib man was
dust under the lassies feet. Also If
women's dress Is today scanty and
more like that of Eve, the men have
not yet had the courage to resort to
the costume of Adam.. However, although he has said much about us, we
all know he is very fond of the lassies and In regard to the men may 1

'If the delegates of the Clarendon

than £1,000 a year, or $5,000, for his
plans and his services as editor-in-

thirty-six years and you will find the

Ford Is Not In
Any Price War
New York, Jam 21—Asked at the
Ford Industrial Exposition regarding
the much talked of automobile prices,
Mr. Ford stated: "I know nothing of
what other manufacturers are doing.
We are making our car as cheaply as
we can possibly make It and there the
price stands. We have done everything we can in production to give
the best that can be given for the least
The Ford plants have now reached
a production of 1,000 cars per day,
which is the key of the situation to
heavy mass production and It Is expected that It ■will be stepped up beyond this number by leaps and bounds
Orders on file throughout the United States and Canada run into hundreds of thousands, while but very
few people have had the thrill of riding In the new car.
As 1928 becomes older the effect of
the Ford Company again entering the
industrial Held will be felt to a most
advantageous degree. Many persons
have wondered why Mr. Ford has
been able to turn out a car costing
between 100 and 200 dollars less than
any other manufacturer today represents a complete industrial chain in
which every link is strong.
The cycle ot Ford manufacture begins in the Iron and coal mines, follows Ford owned transportation
routes and completes the conversion
and fabrication of the materials. Only
completed Ford products are placed
in the hands of the customer. This
control of the raw materials by one
organization without any thought as
to Or responsibility of profit as it
passes from' stage to stage enables
the Ford Motor Company to turn out
a car ot quality equal to that ot a
thousand dollars higher In price 'with
but one profit and that on the final
The Inclusion In the new car of
many features heretofore only found
as standard equipment on the very
finest of motor cars or in exceptional
cases as extra equipment at an additional price on some cans has been
one of the marvelous surprises and
wonders of the new car. The use of
Houdallle hydraulic shock absorbers
as standard equipment is an excellent
sample of Inbuilt quality. The use
of roller bearings throughout, even
to replacing bushings on the spindles
and the design of the rear axle, which
Is of the floating type and should live
out the life of the car, are a few of
the features built Into this 1928 Ford
ot 1930 standards. A multiple disc
clutch and Lincoln transmission allow an ease ot driving to the owner
only found in expensive cars. The
motor, silent, smooth, develops forty
horsepower and enables the driver
to enjoy the same pleasure In speed
pickup and hill-cllmblng ability as by
the most expensive cars on the road
today. The road ability and comfort
of this new car can only be appreciated by an actual demonstration of this
new car's abilities. The beauty of design In the bodies and the quality of
the finish has the appeal to ownership.
