Courtenay Farmer
Is Remanded
Till Monday
Refused to Give Cesnus Replies
E. R. Tarling, of Courtenay, was
brought before Magistrate Conway
on Monday, charged with refusing to
give information to a census commissioner. The Courtenay Free Press in
Tuesday's issue said "questioned by
the bench for reasons for his refusal
to supply returns, Tarling said that
Premier Bennett had promised the
returned men the job as census enumerators. Old soldiers, he charged
had not got these positions, and his
action was a protest against the action of the authorities in hiring men
other than veterans.' '
This was an error, as on the case
being called, and at the request of
the accused, it was adjourned. Monday of next week has been set for the
hearing. The exact charge reads-:
"without lawful excuse did refuse to
answer questions requisite for obtaining information in connection with
the taking of the Seventh Census of

A soccer game has been arranged
between the Cumberland Eagles and
the team from H.M.S. Dragon which
is at present stationed at Comox Harbor. Thenavy boys will be met at Royston wharf at 5.30 Saturday afternoon and transported to Cumberland.
It would be a good idea if citizens
of Cumberland, who have cars would
take a run down to Royston and bring
up as many of the boys as possible.
The Eagles will transport about fifteen or twenty of the boys but there
is a possibility that a good many more
of the navy boys would come if transportation could be found for them.
It would be a friendly gesture on the
part of our citizens as we here in
Cumberland do very little in the way
of entertaining our naval visitors.
Every other city in the Province
where the boats call, entertainment
is found for the personnel as far as
possible. Help the Eagles out on Saturday, folks, offer to transport some
of the boys from Royston. The game
starts at 6 o'clock in the evening and
a good crowd, should be on hand to
give the teams a little encouragement. The visitors have a snappy
team and can be relied upon to give
the British Columbia junior champions a good game. There will be a
collection—so bring your quarters.
Moscow, July 8.—The Government
moved today to put into effect new
industrial policy enunciated by Joseph Stalin by calling for immediate
improvement in the coal industry.
This phase of industrialization has
fallen considerably short of the five-
year plan and has contributed difficulties to transportation as other
lines are depending on coal for fuel.
Appeal calls attention to the lagging production in the Don Basin of
South Russia, the nation's chief
source of coal.

A. W. Neill Does
Not Like Lotteries
Says He Never Wins Anything and
That Might Be His Reason For
Disliking Them
The latest copy of Hansard received
at this office contains a speech by
Mr. Neill during the discussion on the
Soldiers' Aid Society Bill. Mr. Neill
does not like sweepstakes and says so.
In view of the fact that half of thc
Canadian people appear to want the
sweepstakes, this form of gambling
will prosper in spite of Mr. Neill,
whose speech in part follows:
"I have no particular objection to
lotteries or raffles, except that I
never win anything at them—possibly
that is the source of my objection—
but I rather disagree with the honorable member for Lisgar when he says
he thinks he speaks the mU and will
of the people. I believe at tne present
moment it would be popular to pass
an act legitimatizing lotteries; that is
the mind of the people of Canada at
the present day. There are various
reasons; they have burned their
ringers in the stock market, land
booms and oil booms, and now, with
the proverbial propensity of people
to gamble, they are proposing to
gamble in this way. A number of winning tickets have been taken recently
in Canada in some of the big world
sweepstakes, and that has turned thc
public mind in that direction. That
does not necessarily mean that because this is popular for the moment
we should do what in our judgment
is not in the best interest of the country. That is the way I look at the
matter. I do not believe it would be
to the ultimate benefit of the people
of Canada."
The arrangements for the Canadian Collieries (Dunsmuir), Limited
employees' annual picnic which will
be held at Union Bay on Saturday.
July 18th are, according to word
handed out, well advanced. The usual
seats, shade trees, swings and parking places for cars will be in evidence, also children's refreshment
stand and other offices. Tea will be
provided for those needing it, but
sugar will have to be provided by
those needing same.
The running tracks and jumping
places are being put into first-class
shape and what will, undoubtedly be
a big feature of the,jijicnic *rjll be
the" revival of the tug-of-war competition. Given fine weather the picnic
will be one of the best held during
the last few years and it is freely
predicted that it will approach the
picnics held on the old Aelds at Royston some years ago.
Another feature of the picnic this
year will be the grand drawing which
will take place immediately after the
final for the tug-of-war. Many valuable prizes have been donated by
Merchants of Cumberland and Courtenay and by wholesale houses of
Victoria and Vancouver. The Cumberland city band, under band master
W. Jackson will be in attendance and
will render many popular selections
during the day.

who honored him M his last journey,

"He played the Came, and played It
well", declared Rev. M. Lees, in a sympathetic sermon on the lawn of the
Stephens residence. Mr. Lees paid tribute to the sterling qualities of the dead
boy, and hoped that the standard of

his example.

Joe Gordon Wins
The Grand Cup
At Trap Shoot
Cracks   Twenty-Three  Birds  Out   of
Twenty-Five at Local Traps
There was some good shooting at
the traps of the Cumberland Rod and
Gun club on the Courtenay Road on
Sunday last on the occasion of the
shoot for the Grand cup which was
won by Joe Gordon, cracking twenty-
three birds out of twenty-five. There
was a good gallery of spectators present who watched the proceedings
with a great deal of interest. The
nearest competitor to Joe Gordon
was J. Franeioli with twenty-one
birds. Other scores were: Wm. McLellan and R. Bennie, 20; L. Frelone, IB; J, Cameron, 16; C. Dalton
and J. Bono, 14; R. Frelone, 13.
The next shoot will be held on
July the 19th when Mr. Davie, of Alberni, will be a visitor with an under
and over single trigger German gun.
The cost of this gun delivered is said
to be 2450.00. Mr. Davie breaks
birds on an average of 96 </<.
Last year many notables from the
Movie world tried Vancouver Island
as a holiday resort and found it very
favorable. The prediction was made
at that time in these columns that
more of the Movie people would come
to the northern portion of the Island
as its possibilities became better
known. During the past week ,Mack
Sennctt and party tried their luck
at the Campbell River fishing grounds
and had wonderful luck. As the season advances we shall have more of
these noted Hollywood people visiting us—attracted here by the great
reports taken back last year by Mr.
and Mrs. Richard Barthelmess and
Mr. and Mrs. Clive Brooks, who spent
the summer at Comox.

B.C. Board
Favors Health
But Members Wish to Devise System
Before Recommending It
Victoria, July 9.—That the report
of the State Health Insurance Commission was completed during the last
session of the legislature and not presented is the assertion of Mrs. P. K.
Winch, daughter of the late C. H.
Gibbsons, secretary of the commission, in a letter to Victoria newspapers. Mrs. Winch, who acted as her
late father's secretary, insists that
the statement of Hon. C. F. Davie,
that the report is not yet completed
is incorrect.
Mr. Davie declared today, however
that the report as drafted by Mr. Gibbons, just before his death was not
in any sense a final document.
"It had not been considered by thc
commission and not submitted to it",
Mr. Davie said. "Naturally we could
not bring in a report which we had
no.t considered finally, and as there
was insufficient time to do so before
the end of the session, we decided to
wait until later."
Mr. Davie said he was still working
on the Anal draft of the report, based
on Mr. Gibbons' documents and would
submit it to the commission for its
consideration some time in the fall.
The commission, he stated, would
have to decide whether it would submit the report to the legislature at
its next session or not.
It was learned that the commission
is unanimously in favor of a system
of health insurance, but before reporting this opinion it wants to be
able to advise the government and the
legislature precisely how such a system can be inaugurated and financed.
These are the points which are under
consideration now.
The Kindergarten school conducted
by Miss A. Watson in the Anglican
Parish hall held closing exercises at
which many parents of the pupils
were present and other visitors.
The children received their reports,
merit cards and gold stars. Katherine
Wood received a prize and merit card
for reading, Willis Symons a merit
card for arithmetic. Katherine also
received a gold star for perfect attendance and Eric DeWitt for regular attendance. Games and refreshments were enjoyed by the'children.
In the afternoon the school at the
Oriental Mission, Chinatown, of which
Miss Watson is also teacher, held
their breaking-up party. Games and
distribution of merit cards and work,
were followed by tea, provided by the
mothers of the children. Miss Watson was assisted by her sister, Miss
Noel Watson and Willis Symons.
Boy Suffers
Fractured Leg
Suspended  From  Wharf  at   Rojriton
A rather painful and unusual accident happened to David Cook, 11
year old son of Mr. and Mrs. A. Cook
of Royston, on Monday afternoon.
Along with some other boys, young
David was playing on the Royston
mill wharf when he tripped and fell
over, but in falina his foot got caught
remaining fixed, his leg being broken midway between the ankle and
knee. Help was quickly forthcoming
and the young boy soon released from
his position. First aid was administered and he was at once rushed to St.
Joseph's hospital, Comox, where he
is progressing very well.
Alberni, July 8.—Constable Monks,
game warden for thc district, succeeded in shooting a targe cougar
yesterday morning. The animal had

Twilight   League   Fixture   Attracted
Large Number
There was a large crowd of fans
present at the Recreation ground
Thursday night on the occasion of
the meeting of the Happy Valley nine
and the Royston Lumber Co. team.
A real snappy game resulted and before commencing the game it was decided to play seven innings. All
through it was a bang up affair and
Tucker James was responsible for
tieing the scores in the seventh innings, necessitating further piay. The
game went to nine innings when T.
Doi scored the winning run for the
Lumber Co. team who won smartly
by four runs to three. It was about
the best ball game of the season and
kept the fans on edge all the way.

As usual, the residents of the Comox Valley have been giving the
boys from the navy a great time during their stay in Comox Harbor.
Dancing and card parties, cricket,
rugby and soccer games have been
arranged. Already the sailors have
established themselves as first class
sports and have trimmed both Courtenay and Cumberland cricketers. Tonight at Courtenay a rugby game will
be staged at which Lieut.-Commander Kershaw will act as referee. Kershaw is the famous international
scrum half and has represented his
country on numerous occasions.
Dinners and dances also have been
held. A welcome dance was held at
the Community hall, Comox on Saturday last and Mr. d'Esterre and Mr.
and Mrs. Osier, of the Elk Hotel entertained at a dinner and dance for
Capt. Spooner and the officers of
H.M.S. Dragon. During the week
trips have been made to Camp 3 of
the Comox Logging and Railroad Co.
where dinner was served in real loggers' fashion and operations witnessed in the Oyster River section.
A dance will be held this week end
at Royston in honor of the visit of
the navy boys.

The Cumberland Islander
l/\\ /HAT. after all, is a sportsman? As I understand
* VV the bleed, he is one who has not merely braced
his muscle and developed his endurance by the
exercise of'some great sport, but has in the pursuit of
that exercise learned how to control his anger, to be considerate of his fellow men ,to take no mean advantage,
to resent as a dishonor the very suspicion of trickery, to
bear aloft a cheerful countenance under disappointment
and never to own himself defeated until the breath is out
of his body." —George Borrow.
THE CUMBERLAND Rod and Gun club, perhaps the greatest sporting organization in the
whole of the northern portion of the Island,
numbering amongst its members, some of the best
sportsmen to be found in any clime intends holding a big basket picnic and fishing competition on
Sunday next to Boston Bay, Lake Cumberland, for
members, their wives and families. The local Rod
and Gun club have, on many occasions, co-operated
with the provincial game wardens in helping to
conserve the "woods, waters and wild life". Lake
Cumberland has been restocked two or three times
now, at certain times of the year, "Our Lake is
indeed an angler's paradise. The contest on Sunday
will draw many of the members who will vie with
one another in endeavoring to bring home the
biggest catch of the season. So you who are members of the Rod and Gun club, get out on Sunday,
and in the words of Izaak Walton—
"Praise God, be quiet and goe a-fyshynge"
THERE IS one feature of the business situation which
is very fundamental, namely, the attitude of the average man toward life, says Roger Babson in "Editor
and Publisher." Hundreds of reasons are given as the
eause of business depressions and hundreds of solutions
are given for bringing about recovery. Thirty years' experience in the study of business conditions leads me to
believe that there is only one fundamental cause and only
one fundamental method of recovery. This is basically
When people live normally and lead useful lives, business conditions are normal and there are no booms or
depressions. When, however, people begin to forget their
responsibilities and look primarily to profits, irrespective
of the services rendered or the commodities given in exchange, the situation gets top-heavy. Finally, a smash
follows. Conditions then decline to a basis which merely
provides for the necessities of life.
Gradually people "repent", realizing that progress cannot continue on the former short-sighted and unchristian
policy. With this change of heart, manufacturers, merchants and wage workers determine to give the public as
much as possible, in materials and labor, rather than as
little as possible. This new attitude is the beginning of a
period of business improvement. When too many people
think only of themselves and profits, irrespective of their
fellow men and the service rendered, it is always possible
to foresee a business collapse. When, however, fifty-one
per cent of the people see the error of such a selfish program and begin again to think of the other fellow, then
business begins to improve.
Although I take no stock in the theory of a psychological basis for changes in business conditions, I do most
heartily believe that there is religious basis for such
change, I believe that if newspaper editors would emphasize this thought during the next twelve months it would
do more good than anything else to hasten the business
recovery. —The Review.

Bystem in connection with the new tunnel is of particular interest, for tt not only handles
trains through the tunnel and on to the mainline, but covers tramline and railway crossings which are made on the way to the tunnel mouth at the land end. A signal cabin on
the main line, at the outskirts of the city, houses the control system. Thc operator faces
a board, shown in the top picture, which consists of a number of electric levers for
opening and closing switches and also has 20 rotary buttons, for operating the lights of
a like number of signals at various points on the trackage covered. By the same board,
the operator is able to locate his train or trains at any moment, lt will be noted that the
control board is practically a map of the tunnel tracks, the numbers on it corresponding
to those on the signal posts. The line running down the board is the tunnel and the
lines across the top of it represent the tracks of the mainline. The signals to engineers
from the posts are made by means of red, yellow and green lights, indicating "stop",

General Paralym of I mane. Formerly  Incurable, Now Yielding
to Results of Modern
Adults 50c.
About five per cent of patients in
mental hospitals are afflicted with
general paralysis of the insane. This
disease, due to syphilis, until comparatively recently was considered
Some years ago a Viennese doctor
noticed that patients of this type often recovered from their mental disorder after having had some physical
illness, such as typhoid or pneumonia, which had caused high body temperatures over a considerable period
of time. He got the idea that it might
thus be possible to use one disease to
fight another, and malaria was eventually found to be best suited for this
purpose, since it is easily terminated
and rarely fatal. Patients inoculated
with malaria germs were found, in a
large number of cases, to be greatly
benefited,and some were so improved
that they were able to return to their
former occupations. The discoverer
was awarded the Nobel Prize in medicine.
Since then, in mental hospitals all
over the world, the malaria treatment for general paralysis of the insane has been adopted with varying,
but on the whole gratifying success.
To subject a person already sick to
another serious disease Is naturally a
very drastic form of treatment, but
preferable to death. The many men
and women who have been brought
back from the verge of the grave are
sufficient justification.
At the eighty-seventh annual meeting of the American Psychiatric Association, held recently In Toronto,
a paper waB read by a New York medical man giving the results of a large
number of caBes treated from four to
seven years previously. The average
life of persons afflicted with general
paralysis of the insane, If untreated,
is eighteen months, but the average
life for the group under consideration has already been extended to
over six years. It Is found that women respond more readily to the
treatment than men; about thirty
per cent of women recover, us against
eighteen per cent for men. These are
the figures for apparent recoveries,
but in addition a larger number are
in a greater or less degree improved,
Since the discovery of the malaria
treatment, experiments have been
made with short-wave radio. The passages of radio waves through the
body has an effect on body-temperature similar to that of malaria, without being so hard on the system. It is
yet too soon to make predictions, but
there is reason to hope that before
long general paralysis of the insane,
happily not ever very common, will
take its place as a conquered disease.
The amazing book sensation of fiction's great
author has become even more entertaining as a
talking picture. Here is the drama of love in the
great modern West. Seductive unscrupulous, a
married siren trits to cast a spell over a young
artist only to find herself hopelessly outrivalled
by a wholasome young beauty. She plots the
girl's undoing, and the struggle between good and
 I evil, love and bate begins.    Its dramatic power
will sweep you to new heights of emotion.

Questions concerning health, addressed to the Canadian Medical Association, 184 College St.,
Toronto, will be answered per-
the secretions from a cose. Uncooked
vegetables may also be cotnaminat-
ed, and unless they are washed most
thoroughly, they spread tho disease.
The common house-fly has been
called the typhoid fly. It spreads typhoid fever because of its fllthy habits. Feeding on filth, it becomes
smeared with secretions which may
contain the germ of typhoid fever.
Flying from place to place, it deposits
some of this germ-laden filth where-
ever it settles, which is, in many instances, on food which is later eaten.
For these reasons, it is a matter
worthy of attention to make sure that
on short or long trips out of tl.e city,
enquiries should be made as to the
purity of the water and rnil'i which
are to be used, the cleanliness of uncooked vegetables, and the nosmee of
flies from the kitchen ami dinV.fr-
By the use of typhoid vaccine as
wus clearly shown during the Great
War, it is possible to secure protection against typhoid fever. The person who travels from placcto place
and who is almost forced to use water

himself against this disease by securing the protection given by innoc-
Typhoid fever is a long drown oul
illness. It is a disease which has many
complications. It may be fatal, and,
in any case, it is serious and may
damage the body to a considerable
extent. Because of its duration, it is
an expensive disease to treat, and it
is responsible for lost time ond wages.
There is one thing to do about typhoid fever and that is to avoid it.

One of the most encouraging
achievements in the field of public
health is the elimination of typhoid
fever in those places where the means
of prevention have been applied.
Typhoid fever was formerly responsible for much sickness and many
deaths. Hospital wards were filled
with cases of the disease, and severe
epidemics occurred from time to time.
All this has been changed, and in
those places where a properly organised health department watches over
the water, milk and food supplies, a
case of typhoid lever is of comparatively rare occurrence.
Because it is easier to control thc
water and milk supplies of a city than
it is those of the country, cities with
an efficient health department arc
more free from typhodi fever than
are the rural areas.
The cases which do occurr in the
cities are, in many instances contracted outside of the ci-.y. Conditions which prevail during the holiday season are responsible for much
of this typhoid. People are apt to'for
get that when they leave the city,
they leave behind them its safe water
and milk supplies.
We stress the water and milk supplies because typhoid fever is most
commonly spread by water and milk
which have been contaminated with

High selling costs hurt
both buyer and seller.
Wholesalers can cut selling
costs to everyone's advantage through use of the
long-distance  telephone.
A salesman calls the retailer at a given time and
the retailer places his order.
By this method all the latest
offers and price changes are
available and can be taken
advantage  of  quickly.
The long-distance telephone gives the desired personal contact and saves the
time of the merchants called up by the salesmen. Ask
the firms you deal with
about long-distance telephone service.

To the editor, Cumberland Islander
Mr. Bobbie Brown, Mr. Spencer, Mr.
T. Armstrong and Mr. G. Richardson:—I met Mr. Spencer and Mr.
Bobbie Brown at our first of July
celebration in Port Alberni. Ganms
came in for quite a lot of discussion,
and after Bobbie Brown won the fat
man's race, the discussion turned on
Athletes, past and present. The sum
of the discussion being that we decided to have an old times baseball game
at Port Alberni and also to invite
Bobbie's famous football team for the
same day, so the above named gentlemen can take this letter both as a
challenge and an invitation.
Rules to govern the baseball: That
all players be married men bona fide
residents of Cumberland and district,
excepting Courtenay (this will give
"Pa" Dixon a chance to challenge the
winners); bring your own umpire,
Port Alberni to supply base umpires;
we agree to play a return game cf
baseball and football at Cumberland.
Each team pay its own expenses.
In conclusion I would say we have
a good football team here now and
will give your juniors a good tussle.
A great many of us have visions of
seeing the old hands at play. With
vivid memories of "Coal OU" Stant,
Bannerman, Tucker James, Seymour
Abrams and a whole lot of the old
boys doing their stuff. Come on Cum
berland we are ready,
Yours In sport,
On behalf of the Old Timers.
