AST   A   LIFE-TIME
Practical, Durable, Always Ready on Land, Under
Water, Any Climate, Anywhere
The Electro Automate Is un Electric Lump mude in France without u battery or relllls, and of n new conception. 11 is u perfect
machine! the result of years of test 111 the plains of the manufacturers In Switzerland and France :: This marvellous little
pocket lamp, embodying simplicity, reliability and compBCinss,
weighs only 12 ounces. It Is pauiileil in ull countries.
The dynamo, with permanent mugi'Ot, based on new nielhod.'.
gives dense magnetic tields of nerfeu! concentration, which surrounds lhe Induction without loss of lUOS.ietlc dispersion, uud
permits the maximum exploitation ol the energy.
Construction of these lumps i- very carefully carried out by
skilled Swiss clock and scientific instrument makers :: Electro
Automate Lamps are tight and dust-proof. They can lie used
In all climates, Including equatorial regions. They will everywhere render the utmost service, giving a clear white light, without fear of the bulb burning out or the generator booming
warm.
All Electro Automate Lamps are guaranteed fur six months, conditionally that they are not tampered with. With reasonable
care they will last for yeors. Any part can be renewed at slight
cost. Lamps are provided with a pocket for extra bulbs.
This lamp Is especially useful to travellers, tourists, marine and
mining engineers, automobillsts, dairymen, In fact everybody.
They are indispensable on life-boats and rufis. where a light is
needed that wlll not be extinguished by wind or wave ;; Ever.-
mine should be provided with one or more of these lamps, at its
portal or entrance, for the convenience of tile employee or official
whose work takes him In nnd out of lhe mine at irregular Intervals. It ls the cheapest and best light on the market for this
purpose :; Marine engineers welcome Electro Automate lu their
engine room, lt saves them from the annoyance and loss of
time occasioned by the unreliability ot battery lamps when they
wish to locate double or llnil something In a hurry ;; Pilots are
favorable to these little lamps because Ihey are always standing
by rend, and able to do their part In any and all kinds of
weather. They are hardy little fellows and will stand any
amount of knocking about, even lo the bulbs, which are superior
to any others on the market :; Mushers over the northern trails
lake these lamps In preference to others, because Ihey give a
never ending light and add less than a pound ot weight to their
outllts. The winds can't blow them out and the snow or wet can
not short circuit them.
DIRECTIONS
The working ot Ihls self-generating lamp Is very simple. Pull tho
lever completely and sharply wilh the fingers and lei go, allowing
It In open fully in order to take another full stroke. Strokes
should be even and sharp for best results. This lamp Is the
only one of Its weight thai wlll give a perfect light. The bearings nf this lump Bhould be oiled nbout mice a month.

P VERY <m» whs has occasion to
*-* travel and every one who thinks
at all—which is, we submit, another
way of saying every one In this
broad Dominion of ours—has marvelled, at one time or another, over
the exactitude with which the vast
number of trains on our Canadlin
lines are handled safely and punctually. Express, local, special, freight,
construction and other trains i>re
forever plying to and fro along these
lines, leaving the same stations and
utilising the same switches within
a few minutes of one another, y«t
delays and accidents ars extremely
rare. This officiency, which ts
primarily dependent on exact punctuality, cannot be achieved unless
all clocks and watches used by thus*
responsible for handling trains agree
and ara ill strictly on time.
How is this accuracy maintained?
Obviously, there must be an elaborate organization to deal with it, tor
a railroad company cannot afford
to take chances in such an all-important matter. The Canadian Pacific Railway, for instanet, recognizes this and na> perfccied
an extensive department employing
scores of men who devote all their
energies lo checking and adjusting
the Company's official clocks and
watches Some details of its work
are interesting
The official title ot this aggrega
tion of experts Is the Time Service,
Vision, Color Sense and Hearing Department. In this department there
is a Chief Inspector for Eastern
lines and one for Western lines,
Mwk with a isparata office,   From
these offices the work of setting,
regulating and repairing all clock"
and watches is directed and controlled
For setting the Company clocks,
the department employs a method
which is illustrative of the wonderful possibilities of modern science.
In certain stations, round-houses
and yard offices there are clocks
known as comparison clocks, so culled becausi- they have been officially
designated as clocks at which conductors, engineers and others may
safely set their watches. In the head
telegraph office of the Canadian Pacific, in Montreal, there is an electrical master clock, connected with
a similar clock kept in the observatory of McGii! University, Montreal. The latter clock's accuracy is
maintained by astronomical calculation and It, in turn, controls the
master clock In the Canadian Pacific head telegraph office From
this office, lines radiate to every
Canadian Pacific telegraph station
in the Dominion.
At a certain hour daily, the Mc-
Gill master clock indicates the correct time by beats on a telegraph
instrument maintained specially for
the purpose in the head telegraph
office. The signals commence strict.
Iv on the stroke of 11.64 a.m. From
that instant to ten seconds short of
11.65, one beat is sounded upon
every second. A pause of ten seconds follows until, on the stroke of
11.65, two beats are sounded. This
performance is once repeated, ending
on the stroke of 11.56 To the Chief
Operator is delegated the great responsibility of transmitting these
signals to the hundreds of telegraph
operators at tin- comparison stations
throughout the system. It is his
duty to sit at a key connected with
the instruments of all these operators and repeat the signals as they
are received.
Ia   th*   meantime,   ths   operators
Operator Receiving
VAfn Comparison C/oe/f
have been standing by, awnltlng the
signal. Every telegraph instrument on the immense transcontinental Canadian Pacific system, as
the time draws near, is absolutely
silent. At this dramatic moment,
the Chief Operator literally liulds
the system in the hollow nf Viis
hand Thc beats begin. The operators at the l'i^ arison stations
watch their cloe.^ as the signals
flash, westward to Vancouver and
eastward to Halifax They note the
number of seconds error, slow or
fast (if any), registered by the
clock, thc signals cease and normal
work is resumed.
If the clock is more than ten seconds out, the operator at each station adjusts it to correct time. If
it is less than ten seconds out, he
announces the fact by placing beside the clock a card which indicates
the amount of error. To prove tu
officials that he is not neglecting
the job, he must then make an entry
of the rating of the clock on a special card, which covers a period of
one month. At the end of the
month, the card which also contains
notes as to when the clock has been
wound, set or regulated, ii sent in]
to the Time Service office concern-'
ed, thus enabling tho Chief Inspector
to maintain a close check upon all
clocks.
Should a clock need adjustment
by experts, it is at once replnced by
a new clock from headquarters.
Station clocks, other than comparison clocks, upon which the public depend for catching trains, are
similarly checked, as are also the
clocks in offices which despatch tele-
frams and orders requiring timing,
n the larger offices, such as the
company's headquarters at Windsor
St. Station, Montreal, the clocks arc-
electrically set and wound by one
master clock.
Watches carried Oy employee*
sponsible for the punctuality and
safety of trains are also checked
regularly and. In addition, ar*
periodically cleaned Strict regulations govern who shnll carry watches
and also the makes and grades permitted—no less than 12 makes and
75 grades are approved Forty-six
watch inspectors, to whom approxi-
j mutely 7,000 men report with their
watches at fortnightly Intervals,
are employed by the Company on its
Mnstern lines alone, all responsible
I 'o the Chief Inspector, who keeps
;i complete record of each watch.
All of which leads one to wish
ihat one's lady friends would appreciate the Importance ot punctuality
to thc same extent and wer* als*
compelled to report regulurly to th*
railway watch inspectors, even
though their failure to arrive at th*

I. WHO OWNS CANADA'S FORESTS!
The forests of Canada are owned by
the people to the extent of eighty-lira
per cent. It Is true that the timber
cutting rights on a portion of the
forests are leased to companies, thereby providing 126,000 men with steady
and well-paid jobs, but the ownership remains In the name of thc Can-
u'liiiu people. This Is lu happy con.
trust to conditions in the United
stales where three-fourths of the for-
•st urea  Is privately    owned.       The
people of Canada not only gain about
twelve million dollars a year for their
public treasuries from taxes on tho
j culling rights but what Is even more
Importnnl Ihey have ample power to
ensure Hint timber crops shall be
made the Inheritance Of future generations; in other words the Canadian
people by retaining the title to tho
greater pnrt of forest area bave assumed a solemn responsibility for
passing on the "capital stock" of
lhe Forest Estate to our great grandchildren In unimpaired condition.
Now wc come to a little understood
(act. The lorests are being deteriorated not by use but by abuse. In tho
last hundred years, 600,000 square
tulles have been burned by public
recklessness as compared to 100,000
square miles cleared by the axe. Of
Inst years' forest fires numbering 6,000
about 6,400 were started by careless
people. Not the axe hut the unextinguished camp lire, the match and
cigarette, are deviating the forests
and robbing the next generation of
Imdly-neeiled timber. Forest conservation starts with those who uso
the forest for work or play. Thero
wlll be no such thing as forest protection until the Canadian citizen regards the hurtling ot a forest as Infinitely more disgraceful than setting
iflre- to his town hall. THE CUMBERLAND ISLANDER

THE FUNNY SHEET
A five-year-old girl was sitting on
her Daddy's lap the other evening look
ing at the "funny paper,'" A lady dropped into the home uud expressed Indignant amazement tlmt the father
should permit his little daughter to
be amused by the comic sheet.
The lady's protest was the purest
bunk. She is the type that would
reprint Emerson's essays on the
front page of a newspaper if she was
an editor. She could never be convinced that the public would not read
Emerson's essays, and If they did
read them would not understand them
Wc grant that the popular comic
pictures in the newspapers are very
foolish, often quite silly. Hut they
are popular nevertheless, and most
uf them ore based on truth. Of course
every Maggie does not hammer her
Jlggs with a rolling pin, but thorc
are time when she would like to.
Every Jiggs does nol lounge around
the house ln a red undershirt and his
stocking feet ,but every Jiggs would
like to. And Cup. Stubbs is so true
to life that every grown man can
smile at his difficulties. Andy and
Mill and .Mr. and Mrs. are so real that
we turn to them Instinctively for a
smile of understanding.
Comic pictures aro a source of
amusement, not of education. To
see these caricatures of truth does no
barm. The Institution of the home

pretty well maintained by the perog-
atlve of the wealthy, tho idle rich and
the highbrows to drag lt into the gutter of the divorce court or the limelight of public scandal.
Let Mln upbraid Andy with her
jealousy of Babe. The humor may
not appeal to the highbrows, but the
home Is not being undermined .

ing by their commissions: "Take thou
authority to preach the word of Ood."
And everywherev this is being done
come reports of increased church attendance,
"Like a mighty army
Moves lhe Church of God."
Against what? Against those things
tliat are condemned as evil by the
church's Bible, not against mere errors of taste, trivialities of the idle
hour, petty diversions of a passing
style or temporary fashion.
j One might far belter imagine a na-
| lion's navy mobilized against a style

greatest spiritual body on earth

I girl with bobbed hair or a pugilist
! with a bloody nose.

came to the minister. The old gospel
still has a wonderful appeal.

Those magic boots of old—the seven-league boots
—were the work of an imaginative mind. Who could
ever expect to walk seven leagues in a single step ?
The story of the seven-league boots was written in the days long before the present time with
its great possibilities. These days there is no need
for such wonderful steppers, There is the telephone.
It is no effort now to talk a hundred times seven leagues. The world is virtually at one's door. This age
of wonderment is bused, too, on imagination, but it is
imagination plus practical experiment and great development.

AMPUTATIONS' ASSOC.
OF THE GREAT WAR
Toronto. April 26, 1924.
Editor, The I»lauder,
Cumberland, B.C.
Dear Sir;—
We are approaching you In an endeavor to obtain your support and the
support of your valuable publication
In our campaign to make the bonus
on the pensions permanent.
By the "Pension Act,, of 1919, a
disabled case was granted a pension
permanently of $600.00 per year, with
lesser amounts for those who are proportionately disabled, that is, a 00
per cent disability would get 60 per
cent of that amount, aud War Widows
were granted n permanent pension of
$400.00 per year. This was found
to he Insufficient and bonuses were
added to the pensions Increasing thc
amount In 1920 to $900.00 per annum
for total disability cases, uud $720.00
per annum for the war widows.   This
bonus was extended from year to
year aud is due to lapse ou September
1st, 1924, unless Uie Government
takes action during the preseut ses.
slou of the House ol Commons.
We are an organization of men aud
one woman, who have given a limb or
limbs, or complete eyesight, for service lo Canada during the Great War,
and as we are the only Dominion Organization of permanently war disabled men, we regard ourselves us
the Trustees of the Rights of tlio
430000 war persioners aud the 19000
war widows, all of whom will be affected should the bonus ou lhe pension lapse next September. Further
I might say that the pay und allowances of all ex-service patients in hospitals would also be affected, because
their pay and allowances are based
on the amount paid to the total disability pensioners.
Therefore, wc wish lo emphasise
the fact that we arc asking this, not
only In tho name of Necessity as Wai

Amputations,  but  also  on   behalf  of
all wor pensioners, and the war widows, and unless the Government takes
action, the total disability pension will
j be reduced by $300.00, and the pen-
| slous of the war widows by $240.00
i per annum.
What wc are asking will not cost
J lhe country one dollar more and we
j feel that the time has come when tho
I Government of Canada should enunciate a permanent policy of pensioning,
I such ns has Great Britain, Australia
i and New Zealand.     There are some
13.S000  amputation   cases  ln  Canada,
; of whom 112 receive a total disability
i pension, and the rest pensions rang-
l ing from total disability to 40 per cent
■ which latter Is the pension paid for tho
! amputation of a foot.
,     We   have   conducted   a   campaign
j among  the organizations throughout,
the country, and have  received  the
I active support of a number of .Municipalities, such  organizations  as  thc
j Klwanls,  Kotarlan,  Lions' and  Gyro
| Clubs, the Trades and Labor Council,
the Boards of Trade, and what Is very
potent,  the   Women's   Organizations,
such as the Daughters of the Empire,
the   Women's  Catholic   League,  and
certain  bodies of the Local Council
of Women.     We have been promised
the active support of about fifty Members of Parllam >u , and a number of
the Senate, and thc sympathetic consideration of th?  Cabinet  itseU,  Indeed, we have the assurance of the
Hon.  Dr.  H.  S.  Beland, minister ot
the D.S.C.R., that he will do his best
to see to it that the bonus on lhe pension Is made permanent.     But he Is
only one. and Parliament is supreme,
hut we feel that If Parliament realizes
that public opinion  Is    strongly    In
favor of our request, that they wlll
lose no time in giving effect to tho
necessary legislation.
Therefore, Sir, we appeal to you to
support us In what has been considered by all whom we have approached
to be a very reasonable and possible
request, and If we may suggest It,
would you give effect to your support
tn tin editorial or an article In your
paper, on or Immediately after May
first next, In order that the Dominion
Government of our Association, which
is being held ln Ottawa on May 6th,
7th and 8th next, may be the crest
of the wave of lhe support which
public opinion will accord us when we
meet the Government of Canada in an
effort to press for a final settlement
of the pension question, so that $9000
per annum wlll be (lie basic minimum
rate for total disability cases, and
$720 per annum be the basic minimum rate for war widows.
Thanking you for anything you can
do for us In this regard, I beg to remain.
Yours faithfully,
A. SUTCLIFFE,

SPECIAL COURSES FOR I
CANADIAN NATIONAL
RAILWAY MESSENGERS
Company Announces Plans for Training Boys to Hold Higher
Positions
Announcement that all messenger
boys of the largo city offices of the
Canadian National Telegraphs would
be given special courses to equip them
lo qualify for higher positions with
thc company has been made by Mr.
Charles E. Davies. acting general
manage;' of the Canadian National
Telegraphs. The announcement was
made to the messenger boys themselves at a special banquet given to
them by the telegraph company and
was received with great enthusiasm.
A unique feature ot the affairs was
that the news was given by a former
nessenger boy. Mr. Davis commenced
his telegraph career some 28 years
ago delivering tlelegrams and during thc Intervening years he has risen
from the lowest rung of tine ladder to
the top. In making the announcement, Mr. Davies stressed the tact
that the Canadian National Telegraphs
was desirous ot putting into effect the
promotion system and that wherever
possible all promotions would be made
within Uie staff.
NeiW Nistem
Under thc new system of Instruction
to prepare messenger boy for promo-
i lion a system of schooling will be Introduced so that the boys will be given
a thorough courae ot instruction iu
the phase of work they desire to take
up. Apart from this, recreation rooms
will be provided them and physical
exercises and athletics will be encouraged. Plans for the introduction
of this new system are now underway and the schools of Instruction
will be put Into effect, as soon as
possible.
At the banquet .which was attended
by about 100 boys and presided over
personally by Mr. Davies, he called
attention to the fact that the messengers present represented the largest
telegraph system in the Dominion and
that It would be judged by the way in
which they behaved themselves. The
affair was the first of Its kind but
others wlll follow aa a part of tbe
Canadian National Telegraphs' policy
to take a personal interest In the welfare of the boys and to encourage
them to prepare themselves to assume higher positions In the company.

Rapid progress Is being made on

Contracting Company for the erection
of six semi-permanent buildings, while
the new science and library buildings
are being rushed to completion. This
year the governmeut will sell the first
unit of residential property, some 100
acres, and II is generally expected that
the revenue from the sale of Point
Grey lands, which total 3.000 acres,
will take care of the entire cost of the
new Institution, without any addition
al burden being placed upon the taxpayers.
HEALTHY GROWTH OF
CANADIAN INDUSTRY
production of ihe plant of the Ford
.Motor Co., has been shipped to British
Overseas Dominions when coupled
with figures concerning shipments of
cars throughout the Dominion of Canada, this makes a truly remarkable
showing.
There were produced 9149 cars and
trucks In tho month of March 1921.
and for the Ilrst three-month period
just ended, a total of 24,049 cars of
all models. This compared with a
similar period in 1923 shows an increase ol 16 per cent in the total business done to date this year. Another
interesting feature is the tremendous
growth ln tho closed car business.
This branch of the Ford Company's
activity approximating B0 per cent of
its Canadian sales.
In addition to the huge plant at
Ford, and the three assembly plants
located at .Montreal. Toronto and
Winnipeg, there has recently been
opened au assembly branch at Port
Elizabeth, South Africa, where about
300 oars per month will be turned out.

CAMPBELL RIVER.—Au old timer
of Campbell River passed away on
Monday night at the Vancouver General Hospital ln the person of ohif
Hoist. While having had but indifferent health for the past year he had
only been in hospital for a few days
prior tu his death, and the last word
Campbell River frieuds had as to his
condition Indicated Improvement, so
that the news of his passing came
more or less an a shock.
Olaf Hoist was held lu high esteem
by a large circle of friends In Campbell Itiver and district. He was ot
Scandinavian origin and one of that
splendid type of manhood that has
helped to a very large extent in the
building up and progress of British
Columbia. It can safely be asserted
that no better, keener or more sprots-
manllke hunter and fisherman ever
lived. His interest In the game-life
of this country never waned. He was
for some few years game warden in
this district and carried out his duties
us such In a most couclentious manner.
He was a man's man all the time
yet of a kindly and sympathetic nature
and his never falling courtesy and
consideration for others endenred him
to a host of friends who mourn his
passing.
I    He was sixty-nine years of age, nnd
i a member of Hiram Lodge A.F.&A.M.,
I Courtenay.     Thc funeral, lt is under
stood, will take place in Vancouver.
