Comox Village Now
Has Running Water
First Timein History
COURTENAY.—For   the   first   time!
in its history, Comox now has a sup-
ply  of  running  water.    The  4-inch
extension   main   from   Courtenay   is
now laid right through Comox as far
as the wharf where a standplpe will
be  Installed   to  accommodate   boats
calling at the port.   The much needed ;
supply was formally turned on at St.
Joseph's  Hospital  on  Wednesday  by
Mr. R. Filberg on behalf of the com- \
pany which undertook the financing
and construction of the pipe line.     I
A little over four miles of 4-inch I
wood stave pipe has been laid In order
to make possible the extension of the
supply   of   crystal-clear   water   from
Goose Lake thousands of feet up In
the mountains, from its former ter- j
minus in the city of Courtenay.   In I
spite of the fact that the new pipe :
line was financed and constructed by
a syndicate of the people of Comox.
lt is nevertheless part of the city of
Courtenay's   water   system,   and   as j
such will be administered by the city, j
Besides supplying a long felt want at,
Comox  where  water has  been  at a j
premium in the dry seasons, particu-'j
larly at the. hospital where the lack
of It has always been a serious mat-
ter,  the extension  now affords ade- j
quate fire protection as the pressure j
le said to be good.   Connections for j
private consumers is now being made :
and most of these will he completed
within the next few days.
"THE C. H. S. CHRONICLER"
At the request of several scholars of
the Cumberland High Scliool this
space has been set aside' for the purpose of chronicling school events, and
will lie written and edited each week
by the scholars themselves.
Last Friday the first Inter-class
debate was held between matric and
second year. The subject: "resolved
that ambition does more harm than
good to man" was enthusiastically
debated. The affirmative was represented by Leland Harrison and Helen
Parnham, the negative by Alastalr McKinnon and Jessie Grant. We are
loath to admit that matric was defeated by 18 points to 14. The affirmative argued that in deciding as to

Parting Residents
Are Honored
Mr. and Mrs. J. Walton were the
guests of honor at a surprise party
at the residence of Mrs. Richardson,
Maryport Avenue, on Wednesday
evening last. On behalf of those ln
attendance the Rev. E. O. Robathan
presented to Mr. Walton a handsome
leather travelling bag. and to Mrs.
Walton a beautiful silk scarf. In a
few words he expressed regret at
their Impending departure from Cumberland and the Parish In which they
had been resident for so many years,
and assured them of the good wishes
which would follow them to their
new home In Victoria. Mr. Walton.
ln responding, said how much he
appreciated these gifts to his wife
and himself and how sorry he was
In many ways to bc leaving the city.
After refreshments were served all
joined In an Impromptu concert which
ended with the singing of "Auld Lang
Syne" and "For they are jolly good
fellows."
Mrs. Walton and her daughter will
be leaving for Victoria on Saturday
and will be followed by Mr. Walton
early next week.

Club Progressing
The Men's Club, which has recently
been organized and which meets every
Tuesday evening In the Parish Hall,
continues to grow In numbers. It Is
rumored thnt the Crlbbage fans of the
Club are out to meet all comers and
beat them as well. There Is no doubt
thnt there wlll be keen competition
between the local clubs in this game.
The old game of checkers Is also
coming Into Its own, and Messrs. Geo.
Richardson and F. Partridge wlll well
be able to look after the prestige of
the Club In this respect. Mr. Morris
at the piano is gradually arousing the
talent of dormant "Carusos" who
gather round and sing old time melodies and songs. Perhaps Cumberland
will have Its Glee Singers In the near
future, and afford entertainment at
present sadly lacking In thc city. The
executive ls planning an active and
varied programme for the winter, and
as the Club Is open to all men In the
district there will be a chance given
them to enjoy many a happy evening
together this winter In the spirit of
true comradeship. The Club meets

Preliminary Work
For 1927 Fall Fair
Starts Immediately
COURTENAY, Oct. 27.-A meeting
of the Comox Agricultural Association directors, held on Tuesday night,
showed a determination to carry on
with energy. The new board of
directors have decided to prepare the
1027 prize lists at once with the object of having them printed and in
circulation months earlier than at any
former period, For the purpose of
making any revision that may be
necessary in" the lists, special one-man
committees were appointed. These
wero: Cattle division, Mr. J. Pritchard; Horses, Mr. J. Crockett; Sheep
and Hogs, Mr. Alan Pattlnson; Poultry, Mr. W, J. Gunn. Mr. H. Smith
and Mrs. W. Brown will look after
respectively Horticulture and Domestic Science.
A special entertainment committee
was appointed with a view to putting
on three events—one in November,
one In January and one In February.
The committee ls Mr. Pattlnson, Mr.
li. M. Isenor** Mrs. Brown, and the
secretary, B. Felix Thomas.
Mi*. J. II. Mclntyre was appointed
treasurer to Oil the vacancy caused
by the retirement of Mr. M. B. Tribe,
whose resignation was duly accepted
and coupled with a hearty vote of
I hanks for past services. Mr. Morrison brought up the mutter of renewing the boys and girls' stock clubs,
and the secretary was commissioned
to interview Mr, E. W. Bewell, the
district Agriculturist, and ascertain
full particulars In this connection.
It was decided to have the grounds
plowed and disced this Fall, this work
probably to be done on contract with
Mr. It. It. McQuillan.
A special committee composed of
Messrs. Duncan, Urquhart and Hurford was appointed to endeavor to
arrange a plowing match for this
autumn If it is nol loo late to do so.
Now that the treasurer has been
appointed, the prize cheques are to be
signed and issued to the various winners.

There are five little words, I'd like you to know.

UNFRIENDLY NATURE Why worry because
you have made a bad
investment and lost a sum of money? Why fret
about increasing taxes and the high cost of living? Victor Hugo said: "We are all condemned
prisoners." That is, are all under sentences of
death and just waiting around until our time
comes. In the end death in some form or other
eventually gets us all and death is the great catastrophe we all fear.
Recently nature seemed to have been actuated
by malicious whimsicality. Not so long ago in
Tokio, a nre burned 10,000 people in their homes.
A Peruvian town was submerged by floods. Caving earth in a mine trapped thirty-four miners.
A hurricane sweeps oyer a prosperous section,
killing many and wrecking an enormous amount
of property. Earthquakes, fires, tornadoes, pestilence and floods are always bringing death and
destruction.
What of it?
We are living upon a ball that is whirling
around and hurtling through space at a tremendous rate.   It is likely to smash into a comet any
Death lurks in every breeze. It stands behind every corner. A healthy person hides in his
mouth enough microbes to kill any invalid.
Still, in spite of all these lugubrious facts,
laughter goes on. Mothers hold babies in their
arms, the bridegroom rejoices over his bride, little
children play and old people are content. It
would seem that any other creature except man
would be cast down, but there is a spirit in man,
a spirit of hope and courage that triumphs over
all catastrophe. No combination of lethal events
or disasters can dampen this spirit of the human
race.
It is this that gives man dominion over every
other living thing.

six daughters, it has been merely a means of
lifting the farm mortgage.
Six years ago the Mays bought a 200-acre
farm and they will have it paid for in another
year. The girls do the washing, the cooking,
milk twenty cows and have a flock of more than
1000 chickens. The cream checks keep the farm
going and the chickens pay a profit. The boys do
most of the farm work and maintain a large
truck garden. The May family has found the
only way to pay off a mortgage—work and save
and each member do his bit.

THE SCOUT MOVEMENT
AND IIELI'.ION
There is still a great deal of misunderstanding about the aims and
objects of the Hoy Scout movement,
and there are many who.think I lint
the teaching of religion linds no
place in its curriculum. It is interesting to read what the Chief Scout
and founder of the movement has to
say about this, ln one of his books
there occurs the following passage:
"To the man who reads 'Scouting tor
Boys' superficially there is a disappointing lack of religion in the book.
But to him who tries it in practice
the basic religion underlying it soon
becomes apparent. This is not that
of any particular church or sect, but
lt catches on to the boy without him
knowing it, and gives him a Christianity for everyday practice, and not
merely for Sunday wear." "Religion" is a word which in tllc minds of
many people has become inextricably
tangled up with Sunday schools and
sermons, but it is not so with lhe
Scout movement. It takes the word
and uses it in such a practical and
appealing way that the boy comes lo
make religion a part of his everyday
life. The scout's religion is summed
up ln his promise which hvi makes nt
his Investiture, and that is "to do his
best, to do his duty to Ood and the
King, to help other people at all limes
and to obey the Scout law." The
Scout law is nothing more or less
than the Ten Commandments put in I
positive form. To tell a boy "not to [
do a thing" is equivalent to encour-1
aging him to do it on the sly, especially when as is so often the case,
the negative command is unaccompanied hy any explanation, in the
Scout movement the emphasis is on
the DO rather than the HUNT, of
which the Ideal of encouraging u boy
TO DO A OOOD TURN TO SOMEBODY every day is an example,
One of the marvels of tllc success of
the movement is that it embraces
boys ot every country, every denomination and every creed, and welds
them all into one Oreat Brotherhood
living up to one common Ideal, A
movement which can do this can
surely not be accused of not leaching
religion to its members, for Brotherhood Is one of the basic principles
upon which the Kingdom or Ood is
being built up.
THE SCOUT
•♦LEAGUE OF NATIONS"
In reference to the foregoing paragraph there has come in view of the
Telescope the following extract from
"The Scout Leader" for October:
"Another convincing picture of the
world dimensions of Scouting, and its
possibilities for International understanding was presented by tho International   Scout  Conference   held   at
Kanderstag, Switzerland, in August.
The gathering Included delegntes
from thirty-two nations, and the jolly
friendliness and enthusiastic spirit
was lop-hole from start to finish.
Many Interesting questions were discussed and some delicate ones too—
delicate from the Continental political point of view. But they were
readily solved, thanks to the prevailing spiril of brotherhood and scoutlike give and take. I do not think
that such results would have been
possible in any other than thc Scout
atmosphere."
When one reads this another wrong
impression about the movement will
be cleared away, and that ls, that by
joining the Scouts a boy is being
trained fo. war. The Scout movement is the greatest force for international peace that has yet been
organized.

as Thursday was with its bright sunshine and blue skies we at once
respond to the spirit of Nature. As
a rule when Nature weeps, the world
weeps with it, and when Nature
smiles, so does tho world smile too.
That ls why most of us do not like
dull, foggy, wet weather. It depresses us If we get too much of it, and
depression, like measles, can be very
easily caught and passed on from one
person to another. We are lucky
however, in our climate on Vancouver Island where we are able to enjoy each season at its best, whether
it be in Spring when Nature stirs herself from the Winter's sleep, or In the
Autumn when her colors nre so wonderful and restful to thc eye after
the heat of summer. Fancy living in
California with sunshine all the year
round! We would all be longing for
a drop of rain to soften our dried up
spirits. Sunshine, like the rain, can
become depressing If one gets too
much of 11. Here we enjoy an even
balance all the year round. That Ib
why the people on Vancouver Island
arc, as a whole, so happy and con
tented.

ASSASINATION OF TRIO
Three men were killed ln Hollywood the other night! But no one
worried about it.
It was simply one of the big scenes
in "The Amateur Gentleman," the
Inspiration picture which stars Richard Barthelmess and which will be
presented to local audiences at the
Ilo-llo Theatre Friday and Saturday,
November 6th and 6th.
The gentlemen who were cinematl-

Grlmwood, Dick himself escaping
with a slight wound, thanks to the
scenarist.
"NEW BROOMS"FATHER
AND SON "LOVE STORY"
There are loves between men and
women; there Is the love between a
mother and her daughter, there Is
the love of the mother for her son;
but some way when father has a deep
sensitive love for 'his boy,' a different
element has come Into life.
It is a love one cannot know very
well because men hide this feeling.
They become shy, and because of this
shyness Is apt to put a barrier between them and the ones they love
the most.
" 'New Brooms,' my new picture,"
says William de Mille, "Is the story
of such a love, of that of a father for
his boy. I was very interested in
making this Into a motion picture. It
has that element which Barrie calls
'That damned charm.'"
Bessie Lore, Nell Hamilton and
Phyllis Haver are the featured players in the picture due next Monday
at the Gaiety Theatre and Tuesday at
the Ilo-llo Theatre.

PICTORIAL VERSION
OF HALE STORY IS
POWERFUL DRAMA
ROD LA ROCQUE A
BUM IN "RED DICE"
Hollywood, where it is said even
the wildest of dreams come true,
recently produced a tramp who rides
ln a Rolls Royce!
A bum, who, contrary to all sacred
traditions of the hobo fraternity, has
"high-hatted" the brake beams in favor ot a fancy motor car. The mysterious tramp, lt turns out, ls none
other thnn the immaculately groomed
Rod La Rocque of "The Ten Com-', fl_ance*
mandments."   In "Red Dice,
Lieutenant Philip Nolan was a
young man, fired with the impulsive
enthusiasm of youth when he pronounced the fatal words, "I wish I
might never see or hear of the United
States again." Fifty-six years later
he was old and softened by suffering,
but he was still an exile from his
native land as a result of that one
rash wish.
It is upon the story of Lieutenant
Nolan that "As No Man Has Loved"
is based. It was written, originally
by Edward Everett Hale, and was
cal'el "The Man Without a Country."
The screen version, a William Fox
production, comes to the Gaiety next
Wednesday and Thursday, November
3 and 4, to to the Ilo-llo Theatre on
Friday and Saturday, November 6 and
Edward Hearn plays the title role
and Pauline Starke Is cast in. the
feminine lead, portraying Anne Bis-
sell, the girl who remained true
through all the long exile and sought,
through the administration of fourteen presidents to obtain the pardon
of the man she loved.

Laughter, not slaughter, is the ruling theme of "Behind the Front,"

"Behind the Front" is a comedy of

of a couple of dumb doughboys, played by that Inimitable character team,
Wallace Beery and Raymond Hatton.
Their roles are taken from life, for
every battalion had two such characters, who served to furnish laughs
for their buddies and plenty of mix-
ups and trouble for their superiors.

Brewing is an
important
industry in
British Columbia
I"M_W citizens give thought to what the Brewing
1  Industry means to liritish Columbia) as an
Industry, yet il is an important factor in the
industrial life of this province.
It is not necessary

is that the
to emphasize Uie millions of
tin* brewing industry in this
that must not be lost sight of
Ireds of men employed through
out the year in the making, storing and transporting
of the products of the breweries of British Columbia.
Breweries are constantly improving and keeping
modern their plants. The Amalgamated Breweries*
of British Columbia have spent over $300,000 in the
last few months for improvements and equipment.
Breweries are an important customer of the farmers
of British Columbia, their purchases of grain and
hops running into huge figures each year. There
is no Britisli Columbia industry that spends more
of its total income right in this province thun the
brewing industry.
The brewing industry brings large sums of money
into the province. British Columbia beer is attracting
attention abroad for its purity and high quality.
Export markets in Australasia, China and India,
arc constantly growing.
British Columbia beers nre winning their way in
these countries in direct competition with beers from
Great Britain, Germany and Czecko-Slovakia. They
are winning their way on quality und they ure
powerful advertisements for this province.
Facts like these are not romantic, but they nre
Important   and    should   be   considered    by   every
citizen. They an* not commonly mentioned by
those whose business it is lo attempt to destroy
the brewing industry in their determination thut
the people of British Columbia ahull be prevented
from enjoying n pure and healthful beverage iu
uu open und above board manner.
Proof of the high quality of the beer manufactured by thc Amalgamated Breweries is
the   remark    on    recent   analysis    made    by
McDonald and McDonald, analytical chemists
of Vancouver, stating!
"By the analysis, samples prove to be excellent
beer. They ore high iu extract, nitrogenous
mutter, phosphoric acid and ash, while the
acidity is low and the volatile acidity practically
nil, which is proof Hint the beer is a wholesome
nutritious beverage."

SPIRIT OF SUCCESS
IS PREVALENT AMONG
POWELL RIVER PEOPLE
POWELL RIVER.—The outstanding event of the month ill Powell
River was the banquet arranged by
the Company alld held on the sixth
instant in Central Hall to mark lhe
beginning ot a new epoch in the
history ot the town and the successful Installation and operation of two
new units of what is now without
question tlle greatest paper Kinking
plant in the Province, It is noteworthy that His Honor Lieutenant-
Governor Randolph Bruce and a representative of the Provlncall Government iu the person of the Minister of
Lands, the Hon. T. I). Pattullo. were
present and took leading roles in the
ceremonies, that acclaimed to the
world the exalted position tliat the
Powell River Company has aclicived
in the manufacturing industries ot
Western Canada.
In his short address at thc banquet
table, one of the principal stockholders of the company said that thc
Provincial Government is their best
partner, meaning doubtlessly, thnt all
assistance requisite to the successful
development of the plant had been
given by the representatives of tlie
people. Co-operation of those in a
position  to  apply  the  principle  has
been largely responsible for the suc-
jcess achieved at Powell River.
! A statement from Hon. Mr. Pattullo
' to the effect that It matters not where
capital comes from for the development of the natural resources of this
Province, it will be welcome and
given a fair chance, was well received.
In the strict sense of the word the
banquet was not a celebration, hut
the spirit of success was in the air
and the townsfolk realized that lt was
the pleasant associations existing be-
! tween the company and the people
that was also being honored. There
is now no doubt as to the position of
Powell Itlver In the paper making
world. Two new machines—the very
latest devised by science—have made
possible the doubling of the oulpul
of newsprint and have been the
means of bringing to the town for
cargo many ships that could not he
accommodated heretofore.

AT   THE   CITY    HALL
That the iliuinehii condition of the
Olty of Cumberland Is on a Bound
tooling was apparonl al Monday'B
council meeting when the chairman
of the finance committee reported the
general account balance al $8176.64,
Willi $266.62 In lhe savings account.
The School Board Is also "well fixed"
for the time being, showing n bank
balance of $8460.68.
Aid. John Potter, In submitting Ins
fortnightly report, mentioned the fact
that a huge cedar tree at Uie refuse
dump was being gradually burned
through at the base, becoming a menace to life and property nf those having occasion to pass nearby. He had
given orders to the works department
to fell lhls tree as soon as the traffic
manager of the Canadian Collieries
gives his assurance that no trains will
he using tlle part of the railroad In
question. This step Is being taken.
Aid. Potter explained, because the tree
is so burned that it will practically be
an Impossibility to prevent it falling
over the tracks.
No reports were forthcoming from
any other committees, which is taken
to mean that Ihese civic departments
are working smoothly.
Aid. Chas. Parnham, who represented Cumberland at the recent Fire
Chiefs' convention at Fresno, Calif.,
asked leave to submit his report at
tlle next meeting as ho had not yet
had time to prepare It. From the
Alderman's conversation before tbe
meeting the convention must have
been well worth attending, and he
spoke In glowing terms of the hospitality accorded the visiting Canadian chiefs.
City clerk Cope drew to the attention of the meeting Ihe fact that certain fraternal and other organizations
were in I lie habit of borrowing the
city liall chairs for whist drives, and
In quite a few Instances these had
been returned with broken spars and
legs and otherwise ' maimed." If this
keeps up, the clork said, the city will
soon have no chairs at all. To prevent
this becoming uu actuality the meeting unanimously voted ihat hereafter
organizations or individuals borrowing the chairs will flrst hove to make
a deposil of $3.iin as a guarantee that
all will he returned and In good condition.
