Tuesday am» wednkkday
"Cameron of the Iloyal Mounted" Is
tbe fastest moving and most engrossing story of the Canadian Northwest
tliat has been portrayed on the screen
in many years.
Tbe author Ralph Connor, is known
ull over the wyrhl for his stories,
Black Rock" "The Sky Pilot," "The
1'rospector" und "The Man from
Glongary." His books, are being enjoyed loday by hundreds of thousands
of readers.
The outstanding feature of "Cameron of the Royal Mounted" is its faithfulness of detail. In the filming of
the story only seven actors appeared,
the other characters were portrayed
by men. who bave lived their lives In
the shadows of those towering mountains which serve as a background for
the story- It is interesting lo note
that an entire squadron of Royal
Northwest Mounted Police, whose
service:; . were produced through Mr.
Connor's influence, actually take part
for the first time in the history of this
famous organization, In the making
of a motion picture production.
Of the beauties and wonders of the
Canadian Northwest as a background
for the story, little need be said. Nowhere else is there to bo found the
scenic glory of gorge and mountain
peak that exist in this part of the
world Scene for scene and action for
action, this production has no equal in
pictures of tbe Northwest that previously found their way to tlio screen.

NOTICE
EFFECT1VE IMMEDIATELY ALL WASTE OF WATER MUST STOP.
Uwing to the prolonged dry weather we find that it is necessary to restrict the use of
water, as if we allow the present enormous consumption to continue the town may, in the event
of no rainfall l'or the next two months, be faced  with a water famine.
In YOUR interests and for the protection of YOUR property in the event of a fire, we
find it necessary to bring into effect immediately ihe following regulations:—
(1). Water must no( be used for sprinkling or irrigating purposes except—FOR ONE
HOUR Or ,i - -from 7 a.m. to 8 a.m.
(2) The practice of using water for the purpose of watering sidewalks, streets, etc.,
must ceast. Persons using water for these purposes are liable to have their services disconnected until such time as we can install a meter on their supply.
(3). Leaking taps, toilets, pipes, fittings, etc., must immediately be brought into good
repair as any premises on which water is found wasting from these causes will be disconnected
without further notice.
There is absolutely no desire on the part of this Company to curtail the use of
water when same is used in a proper manner for domestic purposes, but in a large number of
case3 we find this privilege being abused and should the abuse continue we shall be forced to consider the installation of water meters, which would make the cost of water much heavier for the
same consumption,
We once more draw to your attention the fact that this is being done in YOUR
interests as every leaking tap or pipe or sprinkler used unnecessarily lowers the water pressure
and consumes water that may be needed in a few weeks more for household purposes or may be
needed TOD -Y to extinguish a fire on YOUR property.
Thanking you in anticipation of  your co-operation in this matter, we are,
Yours truly,
CUMBERLAND AND UNION WATERWORKS COMPANY LIMITED.

CODDLING THE COW
It happened In a small grocery
store, where they kept anything from
a two-foot rule to a pearl necklace.
Court plaster and sausages were also
sold, and, if necessary, you could get
n haircut or a horse shod In the backyard.
A farmer stopped there to get some
liniment to rub the rheumatism out
of a cow, and two or three days later
be returned with a grievance,
"Look 'ere," lie said, "I wisli ye
would be a little more careful how ye
throw   yourself   about   behind   that
counter. The other day ye gave me
some eau-de-Cologne Instead of liniment, and hang me If I didn't put It
on the cow afore I found out what It
was,"
"It hasn't hurt her, has It?" broke
ln the grocer.
"Can't say It has," answered the
farmer. "But ever since I put that
sweet-smelling stuff on 'er she hasn't
done a bloomln' thing but just look
at her reflection In the duckpond and
sigh."

Grace  llelliiidist Church
The Methodist Church commenced
work In 1888, the Rev. W. W. Baer
being the first stationed minister, and
having the following appointments:
Comox Bay, Zion School House, Union
Mines, Jack Hart's Point anil Denman
Island.
In November of the same year the
total membership was four. During
the following month there was a revival of religion on Denman, which
resulted In a large Increase lu tho
membership, ami Denman became tbe
headquarters of the work. The organization of a society, according to
Methodist Discipline, took place on
December 2Cth, 1888, and shortly afterwards a church wus built on the
Island.
Rev. Mr. Buer remained one year
and was followed by Rev. M. J. Stevens, who also remained one year.   ^
The next minister was Rev. It, J
Irwin. During his term there was a
considerable Increase in the membership at Union—making up a total in
the Mission, at the close of the Conference yearApril 30th, 1891, of 38.
Rev..Mr. Irwin remained one year
and was followed by the Rev. Jas.
Hicks. Sometime previous to' his
coming three of the stations had been
dropped, and services were continued
at Denman, Comox and Union. Rev.
Mr. Hicks also remained one year anil
selected tlle site on whicli the present church stands.
Rev. Jno. Robson, B.C., succeeded
Rev. Mr. Hicks and remained the full
three years. During the first and
second years of Mr. Robson's pastorate the island appointment was continued with as much regularity as
circumstances would permit; the
work at Union had so developed as to
require the constant attention of the
minister, and preaching at Denman
was discontinued, resulting In the loss
of almost the entire membership of
that appointment.
At a meeting of the Quarterly Official Board held February 22, 1893,!
steps were taken to build tlle present
church edlllce. The following con-!
stlluted the first board of trustees: |
John Denton, Joseph Llvesley, Philip
White, James V. Nichols, James Dar-I
llngton, and James Colter. On April
15, 1894, the new church was opened |
and named Grace Methodist Church.
The dedication services wore conducted morning aud evening by Rev. R. R.
Muillund, L.L.B., and in the afternoon
by Rev. James Higgins, Presbyterian.
At tiie close of Mr. Robsons term
the membership was 31, including
nine on Denmau Island.
Mr. Robson's successor was Rev.
C. II. M. Sutherland, who took charge
in June 1895, and remained one year.
During his term the Epworth League
was organized. Mr. Sutherland loft
a membership of 27, not including
Denman.
Rev. Wm. Hicks took churge iu June
1890.   He wns returned in '97, '98, '99.

PROVIDING   10,000
HOMES FOR MINERS
Now we know why they call telephone switchboards "exchanges." It's
because that Is the pluce. where they
take the right number nnd exchange
it for the wrong one.
LONDON—A scheme to provide ten
thousand homes for miners at the rate
of 2,000 houses a year is being put
into operation by the formation of a
company to which thirty large colliery companies will subscribe one
million pounds capital. No profits will
be sought but the scheme is expected
to pay its own way. Besides providing bouses tbe scheme includes provision for playing fields, institutes'
and other amenities. j
A beginning in this bousing scheme'
is just being made in South Yorkshire and Wales. J

DULL DAYS
The dull days of summer, the vacation period and the general slowing
down ln business Is at hand. Cum-
beilard, with all olher communities

to bo a widespread spirit of unresl

In (he clouds the sunshine of hottei
days 13 discerned by the optimist and
the follow with courage. The big coal
strike, the railroad strike, the coming
weeks of summer dullness, combine
to a slowing down that gives the pessimist an opportunity to chant his
mournful tune. Dut the fellow who
will reap the reward in ihe coming
autumn is the fellow who takes advantage of this present period to get
his machinery oiled and ready; his
shelves filled with merchandise and
plans made for the good times coming. It is. the chap who keeps hustling when others slacken in their
work that gets ahewl and achieves
tuccecs. Utile old Cumberland can
stand whatever may como in the next
t'-f) months much better than the
crowded cities can stand it, and we
who arc fortunate enough to dwell In
this wonderful community, will get
through this hot, dull summer a lot
easier than the thousands who must
tread the sun-baked streets of the
cities.
SHALL WE SMILE
A few days ago, one of our subscribers complained about a certain
Joke appearing in the paper that
week, written with the intent to bring
a smile, saying that he thought we
could improve the paper by printing
something worth while in its place.
Naturally, that made us uncomfortable—for the moment.
But before we took lhe full count,
we got to our feet,   as   it   were, and
■ asked our good friend if he didn't believe in smiling.
"Oh, yes,'.' he replied, "I like innocent fun, occasionally, but 1 believe
one could Improve one's time much
more by reading something substantial."
• "But, look at the dally papers," we
countered, "they devote entire pages
to comic cartoons and Jokes."
"And for that very reason, I never
buy a daily," he uppercuttcd.
At this moment, 'an advertiser called
us across the street to hand us his
"copy," and saved us from further
punl:hment.
But we do not admit that we aro
wrong— not yet.
We are going to slip a smile into
these columns every time the opportunity presents itself, knowing full

he'.p anybody gain the top round of
the ladder that, leads to fame In their
particular circle.
Wc are not operating under the old
Victorian cede of humorless prudery.
Although wo do not defend any
smutty stuff, we are not iu sympathy
with thoie sanctimonious ones who
seem to thiak 'hat if people laugh and
enjoy themselves. It is a sign of na
tlonal decadency.
So, fill together—let's smile.

You are wrong; someone does care.

How rich, and full, and wonderful
is the great big out-of-doors in the
good old summer time! 'Tis full of
swaying,, green and lovely trees that
shade long sweeping swards and
lawns. Flowers of every hue, from
the pale blooms In the shade, to the
gorgeous flaunters which bare their
beauties to the sun, grow in vast
llower beds. The great out-of-doors
has streamlets, tinkling, merry little
brooks that flow with rhythmic accents to the river's bed where greater
waters bear them to the sea. A mighty
wondrous world it is, old beyond the
limits of our dreams. A century
seems a vast expanse of time to us.
Tis longer than we live and yet
scientists now claim that life first
came upon this globe one hundred
million years ago, and through all
that mighty stretcli of time the out-
of-doors has been wearing all the
vastness of its beauty. The mountain
peaks yielded the sternness of their
outline to the gnawing tooth of time
and valleys lie where mountain peaks
•nice thrust their snow-crowned heads
above the level of the plain. Lakes
lie where deserts once have been, and
deserts- -lakes. When bathed in summer moonlight and the glow of twinkling stars, tlle mystery of the nges
causes the reverent soul to stand appalled. Then we forget and step aside

And prayed that He would intercede
And ask forgiveness over there—
Then you would care.

Batting And
Fielding Averages
Now tliat the intermediate league
Ms reached the half way murk, the
•illiciiil scorer of the Cumberland in
ermedlate baseball club   is pourin;
,,er his averages syd records of the
-.ill'eieut members of tbe club.    The
;coror has a 'complete record of every
move the members of the team havo
made iu the league giiines this season,
'lhe club us a team Is playing excellent baseball. In the baiting department the team is swotting .3SS.
^reddle McLean, who caught for one
of the Nanaimo intermediate clubs
last season, was given a Iryout in the
ield ami proved tbe best man in the
team with tho willow stick, clouting
he pitchers around for mi even .5(10.
Unfortunately for the team, McLean
played his last game at Powell River
and is now working lu Vancouver,
Dave Iticlutrds, the lighting skipper
of the team, now holds the batting
laurels swatting .'194. Bob. Bennie is
following up with an average of .888.
Hob lias picked up in bis batting more
than any other member of the team,
his average being but .250 after the
first two games. Mitchell follows iu
the list with an average of .333. Mick
settled down to business at the beginning of tiie league and is now gradually climbing the batting ladder, being
one of tlle poor hitters at the commencement of tlle league. Farmer
has dropped in ills hitting and is now
iu ilfth place, hitting .320, and is
closely followed by Miller, who is
averaging .318.
Dave iluuden has dropped somewhat and is now hitting .280. Robertson also took a flop from .325 at
the end of tlle Union Bay series to I1I3
present average of .277. Steve Little
is hitting much better than he has
been, lacing out two triples in the
last two games. Steve is hitting .263
Alex Somervillc is the poorest hitter
in the team compensating for an average of .250 by pulling down some
nifty files lu the field and doing Bomc
fair base stealing. Iu the lirst league
game, Matt Stewart swatted .333.
Excellent Fielding
ln the fielding department the
scorer has a brilliant record to pro-
sent, which is very commendable of
any amateur ball club. Tbe team Is
lidding .920, accepting 223 chances
with but 18 in inisplnys, which is
quite a record considering four of the
six league games were played on the
locul diamond. Much of tbe success
of the fielding department Is due to
each player having played In one
position since the commencement of
the seuson; this particularly applies
to the Infield. Steve Little has been
curried as utility inflelder and has
filled the bill on three occasions at
third base and short stop. Robertson
and Mick Mitchell are fielding in
great stylo. At short stop and on the
second base Robertson has but one
error In 18 chances and Mick has
accepted a total of 19 chances with
but one error.
In the outer garden, Alex Somervillc Is pulling down some pretty
catches aud covers more ground than
any other lleldor.
Other Dcpiirlinciils
In tbe pitching department lhe local
crew figure they have the best battery
in the league. In six games, Hunden
has struck out nn nvcrngo of 11 nicn
per game. The best strike out recoil
registered was at Union Buy, when
tbe locals won a light game, 2-1.
Hunden allowed but three safe hits
mid 15 of the Bay sluggers whiffed at
bis offerings. On another occasion lie
allowed only two safe binglcs. Hunden Is averaging seven safe hits per
game, 1 1-3 bases on balls, nnd blls
an average of two men per gnmo.
Dave Hunden works well with Richards, the pair nipping nine men out
of 18 attempts at stealing second
base. Richards has had but one
pussed bull In the league games.
Butting Averages
Tbe'tcnin has stolen 22 bases to
date, •Richards leading the list with
5. Somervillc, Farmer uud Miller
each have 2. The team litis secured
ti double plays In the league, an average of one per game.

We are in a position to handle job work in a satisfactory manner, and will appreciate any orders received. The Islander plant is well equipped in every way,
being the largest and most up-to-date of any found in a
town the size of Cumberland. We have added considerable equipment to the Islander Plant during the past
year or so in order to be in a position to successfully
handle anything that may be placed in our hands in
the commercial job printing line. The Islander has had
splendid support in this direction, and this fact is very
much appreciated. If at any time our customers are
not satisfied we hope they will tell us so, and we will endeavor to make it right. We go on the principle that
only the very best work is wanted by our many customers, and we endeavor to give them what they want.

give us a chance to do it. We feel sure that our prices

Cumberland City Band Unplaced
The Cumberland city band, under
Bandmaster Waddlngton left on Friday last to attend the second annual
band contest at Ladysmlth. The locnl
band has not been practising very
much of late, apart from the two
weeks previous to the contest, and It
Is small wonder Hint they were absolutely unplaced In all the pieces for
which they entered. The Nanaimo
Herald has the following to say of the
contest:
The second annual band contest,
Inaugurated by Ladysmith, was held
on the Agricultural Grounds at Ladysmlth. There was quite u number of
bands competing, and the adjudicator
was N. C. Ayling, late conductor ol
the lC6th Batt, C.E.I''. There was a
big crowd ln attendance and the competition was very keenly contested.
Last year the Sliver Cornet Hand of
Nanaimo carried everything before It,
and while It did not do ns well this
year, it has every reason to be satisfied,
The first contest wns a selection of
"Echoes from the Opera," conlined to
bands from the lilund, the prize for
which wns $50.00 and a cup donated
by the Western Fuel Corporation ot
Canada. Nanaimo took llrlst prize in
this contest.
The second contest was Hie overture, "The Bohemian Girl," whicli was
confined to colliery bands .on Vancouver Island, The prize was a challenge cup presented by the Canadian
Collieries (Dunsmuir) Ltd., to be competed for annually. In this contest
the Ladysmlth bund wns given the
■Irst prize and Nnnnimo second.
The next event was an open contest,
open to any band In British Columbia,
Ilrst prize {200.00. The Nanaimo band
played a selection of Verdi's works,
and was awarded the first prize
Ludyatnfth, playing "Gems of British
•loi'g," was given the second place.
There remained the march contest,
Irst prize for which was $10u.o0 and
lecond $50.00, In this contest I.ady-
iinitli was given the Ilrst prize and
Nanaimo second.
The adjudicator's  decision  will be
published later, bul  while it Is true
that Nanaimo did not do   as well as
! last year, Conductor Allan and all his
members have every reason    to    be
I satisfied with the results.
