A. J. Taylor Again
Heads Literary
And Athletic Assn.
Very businesslike was this year's
annual meeting of the Cumberland
Literary and Athletic Association,
held In the Lecture Hall at 8:30 p.m.
Sunday last. The gathering was a
very representative one, all the retiring officers and board of management being ln attendance as well as
a majority of the club members.
Although the hall does not normally
hold a large crowd, It was packed
so that even standing room was at a
premium Sunday evening.
The minutes of the previous general meeting and also of a special
general meeting were read by the
secretary and adopted with but a
alight alteration. The retiring president, Mr. A. J, Taylor, then submitted his report as follows: J
To the Officers and Members of the
Cumberland Literary and Athletic
Association, I beg to submit herewith my report for the year ending
December 31st, 1925.
"The past year has been fairly
successful under tlie circumstances
that bave prevailed. The source of
Income having been cut In half this
year, and therefore lt has been Impossible for your Board to do as
much as they have In the past; at all
times a careful and close study of
tbe expendttuers has been made,
bearing In mind the welfare and Interest of the Membership.
I wish personally to thank each
Member of the Board and the various
Committees for their hearty co-operation and support and their help to
me during my term of office.
Attached   hereto   you   will   find   a
llnancial  report of the  transactions
carried  out   by  the   Board  at  their
meetings during the year.

Expenditure for year

A. J. Taylor, President.
This report was accepted with satisfaction by the meeting as was the
llnancial report submitted by the
secretary, Mr. Robert Strachan. and
which will be found following this
article.
The president then declared vacant
all offices and asked Mr. Oeorge 0'
Brlen to take the chair in order to
proceed with the election of officers
for Uie year 1926. This Item on the
agenda sheet, contrary to the practice set at other general meetings,
was disposed of with very little
difficulty. The complete board follows: President, Mr. A. J. Taylor;

Board of Health,
Cumberlad, B. C.
Dear Sirs:—
The following is the health report
tor tbe second half of the year 1925.
During the extreme dry spell, and
water shortage that the people of
Cumberland experienced during tbe
months of October and November
the health of the residents was not
as good as usual. It was noticed that
there was a larger number of case of
Dysentry than usual. These cases
all cleared up as soon os the citizens
started boiling the drinking water.
There were no fatal cases.
One case of Scarlet Fever developed in the City during the month of
October. This case was quarantined
and treated at home, and made a good
recovery.
During the month of December a
case of Scarlet Fever developed In
Camp. This case was transferred to
the City Isolation Hospital, and Ib at
present  undergoing treatment there.
At present a mild epidemic of
Whooping Cough is passing over the
City and surrounding country. So
far 5 cases have been reported ln the
City. All cases are being isolated
and the homes are being placarded
as soon as the cases are reported.
So far one death has occurred, this
being due to Pneumonia which developed as a complication of the
Whooping Cough.
Sincerely yours,
E. R. Hicks, M.H.O.
(It should be explained thai In the
Medical Health Officer's report given
above the death noted was a Japanese
baby from Union Bay).

Contentment
Let us learn to be contented with what we have, let
us get rid of prejudices and false estimates, set up
the higher ideals—a quiet home; vines of our own
planting; a few books full of the inspiration of genius;
a few friends worthy of being loved and able to love
us in turn; a hundred innocent pleasures that bring
no pain or sorrow; devotion to the right that will
never swerve; a simple religion empty of all bigotry,
full of trust and hope and love—and to such a philosophy this world will give up all the empty joy it has.
With the compliments of the Publisher and staff of
THE CUMBERLAND ISLANDER
who wish you oiie and all

GEORGE GRAHAM SIGNS
TO PLAY PROFESSIONAL
FOOTBALL IN BOSTON
Soccer fans of British Columbia,
and particularly those of Cumberland,
will learn with regret that player
George Graham has left the ranks of
the Cumberland club and will travel
to Boston, having signed a form to
play professional football ln that
city. Dave Turner, of St. Andrews
of Vancouver, has signed a similar
form and both players are already
en route to the American city where
Tom Blair is at present making a
name for himself in the professional
game.
Turner and Graham, well known
to all soccer followers as being two
of the cleverest forwards ln thc game
In the Dominion, were both at one
time members of the Cumberland
team but lately Dave had cast his
lot with the Vancouver Saints while
George preferred to play for his first
love. There is no doubt at all that
the Cumberland and St. Andrews
teams, as well as soccer In general,
will he the poorer for Hie loss of
these two fine players.

Mayor Parnham
Reviews Work
Of Past Year
It was with a sense of having completed n year of work well-done that
the 1925 council of the city of Cumberland held Its last regular meeting
of the term on Monday evening. In
fact, as Alderman Maxwell said, no
former council has worked so harmon
lously together as the present one
and the city has probably never before completed a better year from a
financial standpoint. It should indeed
be gratifying to the citizens ot Cumberland to know that the council has
some two thousand dolars on hand
and the board of scliool trustees an
amount of somewhat more than six
thousand dollars—these without the
addition of the cheques for the liquor
and pail-mutual profits that are yet
to come. Taxation has been reduced
and Ihe affairs of the city in general
are in a very healthy condition. This
alone, an infrequent condition amongst Canadian municipalities, is
ample proof of the ability and Integrity of the men under whose management the city of Cumberland has
been for the year 1925.
Deserving compliments were given
and received by the various members
of the council. Mayor Parnham especially was showered with congratulations by the aldermen and In expressing his thanks His Worship said
thc year which Is about to pass aWay
had been thc most pleasant of all the
years he had spent In connection with
civic affairs. The city's sound financial condition he attributed to the
Finance Committee and he also congratulated the remaining committees
concluding his talk by wishing all a
right merry Christmas and a bright
and prosperous New Year. The city
clerk. W. H. Cope, was given praise
as well for the active interest he has
taken In affairs pertaining to the
city's welfare.
Hearty thanks were voted to the
Canadian Collieries (Dunsmuir). Ltd.
for thc many courtesies and assistance rendered thc council at frequent
times throughout the year.

IT MAKES ALL While it seems impossible to
THINGS NEW say anything new on the subject of Christmas celebration,
the miracle of the season is that the custom of
nearly 2,000 years makes practically all things
new. The aged become young again through
their rejoicing in the delights of the grand-children with the things that once made their own
eyes open wide in wonder—memories of their
own childhood also come back to them.
It is not simply a jest that papa also likes to
play—even though he may say it is just to test
them—with the toys he buys for the youngsters.
Thus, while the holiday is particularly a festival
for the children, emphasizing the story of the
Babe in the Manger, it also has for the elders
its pleasures and the wider significance of that
world-inspiring event in Bethlehem.
THE OLD-TIME Old-timers caught in the hol-
CHRISTMAS iday rush and gazing at the
wonderfully alluring panorama of the shop windows often fall into a reminiscent mood and re-live the Christmasses of
the long ago. Who does not fondly recall the
magic of Christmas in his childhood?
Most of the presents were home-made. Perhaps grandma furnished mittens, knitted by oil
lamp after you had been tucked in bed—thick,
warm mittens with a long cord that extended up
through coat sleeves and around the neck to prevent loss. Aunt Saphronia gave you a basket
of Christmas cookies, shaped like animals and
stars and covered with delicious colored sugar.
Uncle Tom gave you a watch, and his generosity appalled you even if it was the old turnip
that he had discarded. You can imagine the
reaction you would get if you tried giving a 1925
boy a second-hand timepiece.
Most of the presents were useful, in the old
days, including a reefer overcoat and a new pair
of shoes. As for the "boughten" presents, they
were limited to "The Erie Train Boy," by Alger,
Henty's "With Clive in India," a New Testament,
a sled, a pair of skates and that most wonderful
of all old-time toys, a tin monkey that climbed
a string.
At that, Christmas of long ago represented
proportionately as big an outlay as now, comparing earnings in the two periods.
But the gift itself was secondary to the spirit
of the giver. Somehow every grown-up can't
help believing the Christmas dinners of those
days were superior. The Christmas eve entertainment at the church was as enjoyable as the
modern movie. And the ride in a cutter over
the deep snow beat the auto-trip of 1925.
Christmas is always changing and, to adults,
never for the better.
THE FIRST   A Christmas  celebration  in  Old
CAROL England would not be complete
without the singing of Christmas
carols. For hundreds of years these have been
sung in church and hall and manor house. Today, throughout the Christian world, the good
old custom is growing in popular favor. The
first of all the carols known to have been written
in England, "Lordings listen to our Lay," was
discovered on the blank leaf of one of the manuscripts of the British Museum, written in the
Anglo-Norman language, and believed to date
back to the thirteenth century.

DECEMBER
Oh! holly branch and mistletoe,
And Christmas chimes where're we go,
And stockings pinned up in a row!
These are thy gifts, December!
And if the year has made thee old,
And silvered all thy locks of gold,
Thy heart has never been a-cold
Or known a fading ember.
The whole world is a Christmas tree,
And stars its many candles be.
Oh! sing a carol joyfully
The year's great fast in keeping!
For once, on a December night
An angel held a candle bright,
And led three wise men by its light,
To where a child was sleeping.

MY "LIZZIE"
My "Lizzie" 'tis of thee, short road
to poverty, of thee I chant; I blew
a pile of dough on you some time ago,
now you refuse to go or won't or
can't. Through town and countryside, you were my joy and pride, a
happy day. I loved thy gaudy hue,
the nice white tirea so new, but you're
down and out for true, in every way.
To thee, old rattle box, of many
bumps and knocks, for thee I grieve;
badly thy top is torn; frayed are the
seats aud worn, the whooping cough
effects thy horn, I do believe. Thy
perfume swells the breeze, while good
folks choke and sneeze, as we pass
by. I paid for thee a price, 'twould
buy a mansion twice; now everybody's yelling "lee"—I   wonder  why.
Thy motor has the grippe, the
spark plug has the pip, and woe
Is thine. I, too, have suffered chills.
fatigue and kindred Ills, endeavoring
to pay my bills, since thou were
mine. Gone Is my bank roll now;
no more 'twould choke a cow, as
once before. Yet if I lind the mon.
so help me John—amen—I'd buy a
car again, and spend some more.

AN OLD LEGEND OF
SAINT CHRISTOPHER
Offero. as the saint was known ln
his youth, was a very strong, tall,
and brave young man, whose chief
ambition was to serve the greatest
king on earth. Leaving home, he
travelled far until he came to the
palace ot a king who was said to be
the greatest and bravest that lived.
Offero then enlisted and served In the
king's army. One day he learned
that the great king feared one greater than himself. So Offero left him
saying, "I may not serve thee longer.
I have promised .to serve only the
greatest, and one who feared nothing.
Since thou fearest an Evil One, I
must seek and serve him."
Offero eventually found the Prince
of Evil, and served him.   One day,
as they were passing a wooden cross
set   by  the   wayside,  the  Prince  of
Evil  trembled.   Again the youth set
out to And the king whose cross had
caused    even    Satan,    the    terrible
Prince of Evil, to fear and tremble.
He  was  directed  to a  holy  hermit,
who told him the story of the cross
and Instructed him in the service of
the   Lord   Christ.     Offero   stationed,
himself at the edge of a dangerous
stream where many travellers had to
cross.   On account of his great sice
and strength, he rendered great assis
tance  and   saved  many   lives.     One
very dark and stormy night' when the
river  was   in   flood  and  exceedingly
d.trgercus, a small child eiftne to the
river bank,  and asked  to  be  taken
across.   Offero placed the child upon
his broad shoulders, and waded out
Into the tumbling water.   As he went
the child seemed to   grow    heavier
with every step,    and    his    mighty
strength was taxed to Its utmost. He
safely reached Ihe far shore and set
his burden down.   Then, aa he looked, a strange light enfolded the child,
and  before  him    stood    the    Christ
whom he had so long been tryjng to
find.   A  clear  sweet voice  came to
him  saying.  "Inasmuch  as  ye have
done It unto one nf the least of these,
my  children,  ye  have  done   It   unto
me.    It seemed  Indeed a heavy burden, for I bear on my shoulders the
sins nnd sorrows of the whole world.
[Thou are well lit to be my servant,
| and henceforth thou shalt be known
; as Chrlsfs-OfTero  (Christopher), and
| as a sign that I am thy King, take
thy staff and strike It Into the earth."
| As the voice ccaBed, the light faded.
I and the child was gone: but Offero
struck   IiIb   staff   Into  the   earth,   lt
took root and budded out Into leaves
of tender green.

FORTUNE TELLER'S
PROPHECIES THAT ARE
SURE TO COME TRUE
Are fortune-tellers really as harmful as the law (judged by a recent
prosecution) seems to think? sayB a
writer In The Mirror.
I cannot believe It. I cannot see
why people shouldn't Indulge in this
mild form of amusement, if they want
to. As a matter of fact, they do—for
example, at Wembley, for a fee down.
Why  not in  private—also for a fee?
1 gather that there are a good many
people engaged in the industry, and
it is a mystery to me why there are
not many thousands more.
Ot all the "cushy" (If I may use a
bil ot war-time talk without looking
loo hopelessly old-fashioned) occupations In this world. I should think
thut of a diviner of tbe future ls the
ushiest. They simply cannot lose;
their prophesies are hound to come
true.
Let us examine for a moment thc
sort of prophecy that the average seer
hands you.
"You will go to n large building."
sin* says mysteriously. "I cannot see
exactly what, but you will talk to a
lot of people."
Theory of Chances
Al lirst hearing how thrlllsome!
Uni cold analysis tells us that in ordinary life wc cannot avoid going Into
large buildings and pretty frequently,
too! Think of Ihe many large buildings which enter our dally life at
some time or other—bnnks, stores,
schools, for instance. Our existence
is simply beset by large buildings.
"You will talk to a lot of people."
Naturally!
Short of barricading oneself in the
buck attic, and having one's food
pushed under the door, one cannot
avoid miking to a lot of people.
Another favorite phrase is "Hasty
news."
Well, while we have wireless, telephones, telegrams, and a postal delivery every hour, any news we get Is
more or less bound to be hasty. This
perfectly meaningless catch-phrase Is
of course, a survival from the middle
ages, nnd is simply pointless In tbe
twentieth century. Still, the fortunetellers keep on using it. and unthinking folk keep on being thrilled by it.
With a "Itnrk Man"
Another obvious piece of eye-wash
is the familiar. "You will have business lalk with n dark man."
In spite of our boasts about our
Nordic ancestry, many of us are dnrk,
as the most cursory observation will
show. To meet a really fair man is
the exception': . So far out* 'fortuneteller is on velvet; and a "business
talk" might mean anything, if I ask
n dark-haired tobacconist to sell me
a packet of cigarettes and a box of
matelies. 1 am fulfilling tlie prophecy
to the letter.
"Something is coming to you from
icross the sea."
1 should say so!
Whal with Argentine beef, Australian mutton. Danish baeon.Gcrman
toys. Sweedish matches, American
cigarettes ami many other articles of
ordinary use. we meet things from
across the sea at every turn. So there
Is nothing In that to get excited about
1 should imagine thut the sporting
tipsters     must     bitterly     envy   the
fortune-tellers.   Their prophecies are
absolutely   unbeatable,   fear-nothing
naps.

ALDERMAN COOKE
HANDS IN RESIGNATION
(Continued  from  Page One)
porting for the electric light committee was very anxious to make It
plain that tlie light interruption on
Saturday night last was caused by
the blowing out of a fuse on tbe line
of tlie Canadian Collieries in course
of transmission to the city. According
to aid. McDonald, the city authorities
Iiad been much criticised for the Interruption but tho fact was that the
city authorities had nothing to do
with the cause. They had. however.
It seems, been instrumental in recti-1
fjing the trouble. City Clerk Wood j
thought the merchants would be well
advised to keep a lamp or two on
hand in ease of emergency. The
reason so many did not take any
precaution he thought was because
interruptions were so rare. Mayor
Duncan said there was no doubt that
the light had been very satisfactory
—perhaps more than in larger cities.
Alderman Field reported on the
result of the local Armenian Fund.
Only about $140 had been received,
and this, for the most part, had been
donated by children. He also brought
up the matter of the Boys' Band The
council had previously led Mr. Bramley to believe that the city would
assist In this matter. It now appeared doubtful If the city bad power
to  make   a   grant   for   this   purpose.
The city clerk reported/ that city
solicitor J. M. .Mitchell-had ruled that
the city had no such power He
thought, however, tbat some of the
instruments might be purchased and
loaned to the band, but to remain
the city's property. Aid. McKenzie
remembered tliat the city and the
public hud provided musical Instruments for the 102nd. Battalion with
the understanding that they were to
be returned. The band, however,
went over-seas and none of the instruments had since been seen. Aid.
Macdonald, who suggested that $100
might be spent for instruments, said
that the night school In this connection had started off with fifty to sixty
pupils. The mutter was left over to
Iho next council meeting.
A great many other items occupied
the nltentloii of the meeilng to nearly midnight.

"BAGDAD" DECLARED
BEST PICTURE EVER
Douglas Fairbanks will be seen In
the marvelous Arabian Nights talc,
"The Thief of Bagdad," at thc Gaiety
Theatre on Wednesday, Dec. 30th,
New Year's Day and Saturday, Jan.
2nd. us well as at the matinees on
Friday and Saturday at 2:30.
It was, according to all accounts,
the great good fortune of the screen
that Douglas Fairbanks came upon
this amazingly romantic love story
anil that he undertook to make It Into
a photoplay. .Moving picture critics
Is such cities as "The Thief of Bagdad" has been shown, have been unan
Imous iu asserting that It is tho
greatest (lim ever made. When it is
considered tliat this story departs
from the affairs of every-day life and
soars off* Into dreamland; that there
bus been visualized and made real
the snaring away of Ihe Magic Carpet over the house-tops and Into the
sky; the Winged Horse, with the
Thief galloping off to and through the
clouds; the Magic Rope which the
Thief throws into the air and climbs
up into lhe sky. up Into all sorts of
places—It will be seen that "The
Thief of Bagdad" Is no mere spectacle
no mere bringing together of crowds
to appal the multitude.
