Third Teacher
For "High" ls
Still In Doubt
Will a third teacher be appointed
to the teaching staff ot the Cumberland High School, with the aim in
mind of adding a course ln Senior
Matric? The probability of such being the case was intimated ln a previous Issue of the Islander but after
a special meeting of the School Board,
held Wednesday evening for the express purpose of considering this
question, It Is doubtful what will happen.
The original Intention of the Board
had been this—If over fifty pupils
registered for High School this coming term then lt would be only just
to the pupils themselves, and to the
ratepayers, to add a third teacher to
the staff to look after the Increase,
and, with a third teacher, lt would
then be possible to add a course in
Senior Matric. But Secretary Mac-
klnnon pointed out that only forty-
three had registered, excluding six
for Senior Matric. Was the Board
then justified, he asked, In making
this proposed addition to the staff?
Trustee Brown said that six pupils
had registered for the purpose of
of taking this senior course, should
such be Instituted, and he thought
they should be encouraged. Their
ages averaged around 17 years, too
young, he Bald, for them to leave the
parental roof, which they would hav;
to do if unable to take their first year
of Unlverlsty here. Trustee Brown
expressed the opinion that the parents ot these six pupils would be only
too glad to donate a certain sum of
money each month to help pay the
salary of a third teacher. Mr. E. W.
Bickle and Rev. W. Leversedge, who
were present, also addressed the
Board on lines similar to those laid
down by Trustee Brown,
Trustee    Maxwell    was    decidedly
against the third teacher proposition,
and said so in as many "•">«;•...*J"
„..» uu. ....... i« aw irom nrtcen to
eighteen hundred dollars more shoved yearly on the ratepayers. They
had enough to bear already. Mr.
Bickle pointed out that puch would
not be the case. The parents of the
six pupils In question would each be
willing to donate $10.00 per month—
probably more—and this sum, together with the government grant,
would leave only a small amount for
the Board to make up In paying the
extra teacher's salary.
To bring the matter to a head,
Trustee Brown moved that a senior
matric course be instituted and that
a third teacher be appointed. Thero
waa no seconder. Maxwell then
moved that the whole question be left
over to the first of the year. No
seconder. Trustee Ledlngham then
made a motion to the effect a third
teacher be appointed, irrespective of
whether  or   not   senior   matric   be

when a spark from the kitchen chimney ignited the roof. A youngster,

INSANE CHINAMAN
GOES TO ESSONDALE
Several   unsuccessful   attempts   by
one ot Chinatown's aged residents to
committ suicide during the past week
have resulted ln his being taken to
i the  hospital   for  the  mentally  deli
| cient  at   Essondale,   B.C.      The  old
I Chinaman  was a familiar ligure on
I the streets of Cumberland where he
made lt an almost daily practice to
beg for anything that anyone would
give him, money preferred.     His tottering steps and shaking arms earned him the nickname of "Shakey."

sit ln the center of the track and refuse to move until someone would
bodily lift him away. Had the engineer on the train not been so careful at least one nf Shakey's attempted
suicides would have been a success.
taken. Still there was no seconder.
Trustee Maxwell then made another
motion—that this question, as well as
the manual training and domestic
science question be left over to a
plebiscite ln January. Secretary
MacKinnon seconded this but the mo-

cast her vote against it.

from the beginning.

Slapped." a famous clown. He falls
In love with Consuelo, beautiful young
daughter of the proverty-strlcken,
dissolute Count Mancinl, who is living on his daughter's earnings as a
bareback rider. HE. a clown with a
grotesque face, keeps his love for
Consuelo unspoken, for she Is In love

Cumberland's share of the liquor
profits for the six mouths ending
March 31st. 1925. was a pleasant surprise for the members of the city
council at their regular meeting Monday evening, the sum received being
$305.63 in excess ot that received last
year for a period of twelve months.
There were no deductions for enforcement of thc liuuor act un iu ike
case of several other cities throughout the Province. Last year's cheque
for twelve months, was $2,367.17. The
cheque received Monday evening was
only for six mouths and was for the
amount of $2,672.80.
The method by which the profits
are divided is explained fully In the
following letter which accompanied
the cheque. August 4   192"*.

A ratal accident occurred at Royston at midnight last Saturday when
a Chevrolet automobile, containing
two Swedish loggers from Camp No.
3 of the Comox Logging Company,
crashed into a telephone pole. Tho
car was travelling from Cumberland
but failed to negotiate the curve at a
point where the Cumberland-Royston
road joins the Island Highway.
One of tlie loggers, Chas. KHnoneu,
evidently struck the pole with his
head as the skull was badly fractured
and death was almost instantaneous,
Dr. T. A. Briggs, of Courtenay, was
summoned to the scene of the catastrophe but his help was unavailing.
Following the accident, the other occupant of the car, Alec. Lungmnn,
who appears to have been driving,
was arrested and lodged in the Provincial pail here.
In connection with the tragedy a
coroner's jury, empanelled on Monday to make an Inquiry, returned a
verdict of accidental death, intimating that Lungman was driving to
the common danger. The jury also
brought in a rider urging that the
part of the road where the accident
occurred be put in a safe condition
as soon as possible, Kfinonen wns
buried  Tuesday afternoon.
The following day Lungman was
given a preliminary hearing before
Magistrate T. H. Carey, of Cumberland; charged with manslaughter. His
case will come up at the Fall Assizes.
The evidence brought out on Wednesday tended to show that both accused
and the deceased were under the In-
fluenze of liquor, as the latter had
purchased two bottles of whiskey In
Courtenay, one of which was found iu
tlic car after the accident. Both also
bad taken eight or nine glasses of
beer iu a local beer parlor before pro-

FRIDAY,   AUGUST  21,   l'J2
Take a little stroll along any prominent city
thoroughfare about matinee time and gaze rudely
into the faces of the girls you meet. You will at
once be convinced that the girls of today have
taken seriously the old saw about
A REAL beauty being only skin deep. The
BEAUTY falsity of that delaration is making
millions for the manufactures of cosmetics and is enabling the beauty parlor proprietors to lay up money in thc bank. And the girls
themselves grow to look more like painted dolla
or madeup clowns eacli day.
But really beauty goes a lot farther than tha
skin. Good health gives rosy cheeks that beat
the dab of rouge a mile. Character gives a light
to the eyes that far exceeds the penciled eyebrows. For character shines out through the
face and a weak character will tell in spite of all
the facials the beauty specialists may put on and
rub off again.
The beauty that is only skin deep is seen behind the footlights and upon the screen. It is
good to look at for a while. But by and by it
gets as tiresome as the unwashed dial of the town
clock. Can you imagine that dimpled face of
the made-up doll, minus the rouged lips, the penciled eye lashes and the talcumed nose, next morning in a boudoir cap? That's what you've got to
wake up to if you marry a girl with beauty only
skin deep. That is the kind of beauty that fades
and is washed off in cold cream every night, and
if love is based on a fading thing, it too will sicken and die.
The girl that lasts, the girl that will make a
true wife and a real mother is the girl whoso
beauty shines out through her face and is not
laid on with a lip stick and a rouge puff. You
can live with and love that beauty forever and
the wise young fellow knows it.
but the children do not look upon them with the
same respect that we looked upon our grandmothers in the days gone by.
Grandma today wears her dresses short,
sometimes bobs her hair and never wears a cap.
She brings the youngsters pretty baubles when
she returns from a trip but she never thinks of
giving them a slice of self-raising bread with a
layer of butter spread with brown sugar. She
slips them a nickel for an ice cream cone but the
cone never tasted half so sweet as one of grandmother's cookies from the big stone jar in the
kitchen pantry.
So, out of the past, through the sampler and
the little old lamp, we sense that grandma of
other days, like the fragrant memory of the lilacs
that bloomed in her garden. If you have something that was left behind by one who loved you
when you were a child, hold fast to it and look
long upon it. They are the priceless treasures
in the homes that today are tilled mostly with
junk.
Hanging on the wall is a sampler made a
hundred years ago by a dead grandmother, when
she was a little girl seven years of age. Standing on the hall table is a little old marble-based
coal-oil lamp which the grandmother
THE OLD carried about the house when she
SAMPLER   was a young lady.     For years this
grandmother has slept in her narrow
bed beneath the sod, but we seldom go upstairs at
night without a thought of her. We never knew
this grandmother, who left the sampler and the
lamp behind when she went away, but she must
have been a wonderful woman.
How our lives, after all, are linked with those
who- have gone before and when we stand gazing
at the old sampler and the lamp we feel the gentle
presence in the home of the grandmother who
was good to others when she was a little girl.
Ah, those grandmothers of Canada's younger days! How their work-knotted hands told
the true story of their years of toil. How they
stinted and saved and reared their families. The
children of this generation, who still have an old-
fashioned grandmother are the children to be
envied, for grandmothers today are not often
found like the grandmothers of forty years ago.
They love their children's children, perhaps, just j
as fondly as the old-fashioned grandmother did,
A gray-haired old man once went to the home
j of his daughter and knocked at the kitchen door.
' when the door was opened, the daughter, who
had small patience with the feeble old man who
had cared for her when she was a
MOST OF US   child, bade him come in and stand
ARE HICKS   there "like an old fool."     In her
father's toil-worn hands she saw
a bottle.     Thinking he had been sent on an errand, she said sharply, "What do you want in the
bottle?"
Looking at her strangley from beneath his
shaggy eyebrows and shaking his head in a tired
way, he leaned forward and whispered, "I am
looking for the Holy Ghost." The woman threw
a shawl over her shoulders and hurried the old
man back home.
"My God," she cried, as she pushed open the
door, "Father's lost his mind. Don't ever let
him out of your sight again."
This is a true story, but the tired father anil
the impatient daughter both now sleep in a nearby cemetery. At that time there was a great
discussion in the church as to whether there were
three persons in the godhead. That matter has
never been definitely settled.
Later we knew a little Christian mother who
was greatly disturbed after listening to a sermon
on "Infant Damnation." Still babes that have
not been baptized die by thousands and anxious
mothers wonder if they are lost.
Long years ago Galileo was condemned and
forbidden to teach that the world moved around
the sun. The matter settled itself by the natural process of the growth of progress. But
great issues in the church are rarely decided by
court or controversy.
Recently the world has been much disturbed
by a trial in Tennesee which sought to stop the
teaching of evolution. Some minds, worn by
the weight of years, or never strong enough to
tmnK  ror   iliemselves, liovc  auKi/Uoa i>-«™ »i_
fected and horrid nightmares of jungles fear have
probably disturbed their serenity.
Thoughts rise unbidden in the human mind.
To attempt to control thoughts by law is foolish.
No power on earth can prevent men from having
different views on things both spiritual and physical. Real religion is truth and truth is never
opposed to religion. Bryan's simple faith is
more to be desired than Danow's dogged inquisi-
tiveness. Searching for light is all very well if
you have the mind to delve, but statistics during
the world war proved that the majority of grown
men had the minds of children. In trying te
solve the mysteries of infinity most of us an;
"hicks."

Such Is the unwritten code of today
in a world that mockingly professes
Christianity with Its lips while the
heart belles the hypocritical utterances with standards of conduct of an
entirely different nature.
In the Modernist's mud rush for

the shrug of contempt which they deserve.
And so goes on his merry way, ever

The Voyin*-*** Out Brings Novel Experiences to Itolh Turn and Tony
When I awakened late the morning
ot the first day out It was with a queer,
all gone feeling. Not seniickness.
Physically I was not at all Inconvenienced by the slight roll of the
ship, and I was completely refreshed
by a good sleep. Dut there la some
thing about being at sea—even though
^,^a,f.noi„7vXl^,,.l1.ro.i,,1;,eTrge"w"to
one.    There is a sense of loneliness.
From the porthole—really a window
—in the living room of my suite, 1
could sec the unending expanse of sea.
Through the porthole came thc awisli
swash of sun-sprinkled spray, as It
splashed against the side of the ship.
Actually I had much the same feeling
as when years ago, as a rider In New
Mexico, I got miles and miles away
from the rest of the outfit and stopped
to look about mo from the Isolated
height of a mountain side.
A rap on the door, accompanied by
the announcement th:*t Ihe steward
would serve breakfast III our rooms
when we desired, aroused me from my
reverie. Thomaslna, bright and happy, her color high from an early
promenade on deck with her nurse.
came tumbling into the living room,
and Mrs. Mix and Mrs. Forde appeared a *few moments later. I ordered
breakfast and we four sat down to our
first meal together at sea.
We made of that breakfast considerable of a ceremony. We four together were off for a new experience and
a new adventure and all uf us began
to draw mental pictures of what we
would encounter. Of course Mrs.
Mix had an advantage, tor she had
been across previously, and we counted her out. The rest of us formed
our own visions.
Thomaslna, not to be outdone hy
her elders, hud her own Ideas, which
she summed up in tho following: "We
go to Europe and then to Paris."
And so young! Already I saw tlie
beginning of a dressmaker's darling
In my offspring. Europe to her was
something apart from Paris. Rather, Paris was something apart from
the reBt of the world. That was
something to look into.
To define exactly what 1 thought I
might expect In Europe Ib beyond me.
I had always considered It more as a
geographical division than as a continent made up of living, striving peoples.
Except for the two or three wars I
had fought In and that last time when
our boys went across In millions to do
the work cut out for them, I had given
the Old World only occasional consideration. My own existence had
kept me too busy.
True, we derived each year many
thousands of potential citizens from
abroad—Including a few motion picture stars—but because my interest
had been In the main Impersonal, I
had formed only the most casual opinions of our civilization's birthplace.
and consequent lack of knowledge.
But I did not huve long to ponder the
matter. Breakfast was soon over
and It was time to go on deck. Will,
my family in tow, I walked up to A
dock and out on the promenade on thc
starboard side. A soft sweet wind
was blowing; a fragrant smell of sea
air sent a pleasant thrill down my
spine. It seemed almost like home
again to breath pure ozone after a
week of New York's murkier atmosphere.
Tlie deck was lined with people,
some sitting deep in their steamer
chairs with rugs piled snugly over
them, others leaning on the rail looking seaward, still others walking
swiftly back and forth on the smooth,
sand-scraped boards. All appeared
happy and satisfied, as if Anally they
had triumphed over their little devils
of worry—a triumph made possible, I
felt by the realization nothing short
of an act of God could, for live more
days at least, throw them again Into
the conflict of modern life. Here. 1
thought, would be my chance to be
alone enough to take stock of myself
—to brand and herd into their proper
corrals the many ideas wliieh life had
been piling up.
But not a chance! Defore I had
taken even one turn about Ihe deck 1
was recognized by a youngster, whose
eyes seemed to pop open as he pointed
at me and shouted: "Tom Mix!" And
then, as suddendcnly: "Say, Tom,
Where's your horse."
Believe me that made me act quickly. Here I had been at sea for a
night and morning, and I hadn't been
down to see how my Horse wns taking his voyage.
"He is here, sonny," I answered.
"Thanks for the reminder. I'm going to see him now."
"Hurrah!"   yelled   the   youngster.
"Tony's  ou   board!      Bring  liim  up
here, wlll you Tom?"
" 1 couldn't promise that, for no mnt-
ter how much I loved Tony and ho**.'
Tnuch consideration I felt he was entitled to receive, he was, after all, a
j horse and Ills place wasn't exactly on
j the promenade deck.
■     "I'll do my best," 1 told Ibe lad and
I then hurried off down to Tony's stall,
I located for'nrd on D deck.
I     If ever I've Heen a horse happy to
! see his muster It was Tony when I
j entered his stall and threw an arm
j around Ills neck.     And if Tony was
| happy, you can imagine how pleased 1
| was when  I   found   him   In   perfect
i health, enjoying, rather than suffer-
| ing from, the voyage.
ile nudged me hard with his head
j and his moiiib closed firmly about my
hand.     Thais Tony's way of greet-
I lug me.
I     "Well, boss," I could see him try-
; Ing tb say. "this ia a new one for us,
i eh?, but I like lt due.    Only for goodness' sake! don't run off and leave me
alone so long any more."
I     Pat Chrlsman came In then und to-
! gother we went carefully over Tony.
We couldn't find a mark or anything
j to indicate he was being affected by
' tlle trip.     His appetite was good an:!
! he pawed about as if lie wanted  to
. cut loose on a good run.
Later on that day 1 was talking
j with the captnln. He was curious
; about Tony's ability to stand up under
the ^exacting demands of an Atlantic
crossing, followed by a succession of
train trips and then another voyage
home. I assured him my horse could
do ahout anything and not suffer from
it.
"But look here. Tom." he snld. and
Ills eyes twinkled "suppose something
should happen to the ship ind we
had to take to the boats? What
would you do about Tony then?''
"Oh. he's a good swimmer." I answered. "Why on location—"
"That's all very well, but our present location Is a bit different from
nay he's ever been on. At our reckoning we are more than 500 miles
from shore."
"That's   a   good   distance,"   I   an.i-
"".rad.   "but.   if   you   arrange   for   n
movie camera to ne placed alongside.
"And do you know that if anything
should happen to the ship you would
have to swim to shore, which you
can't do." Again Tony nodded Ills
head.
"Are you sure you know what I'm
talking about?" I asked. His head
moved quickly up and down.
"Tony." I said calmly, "you're a
liar." His head drooped and he began to paw again restlessly. "Don't
tell me you're'not. This Is your first
time at sea ami you can't possibly
know what you're up against."
Tony's head coatinued to soy yes, j
bul I overlooked It this time and went j
on lo Inform him of tlie captain's or-!
ders.

"That's for you. boy. Understand?
[ asked. The boat continued to
awing nearer the dock and Tony became more excited.
"He must have a lifebelt, Tom," one
of Ilio sailors called. "No one go-**
Into a lifeboat without ono."
"Good," 1 answere-.l and took one
Which   another   sailor   handed   me.

I bet Tony can swim It."
The captain spoke with much gravity:
"This is no time for boasting, my
boy. For tbe sake of protection in
case of emergency there Is only one
thing to do: We must put Toiiv
through the lifeboat drill. 1 would
never forgive myself If something
should happen and we would all be
saved except Tony."
I saluted. "Right you are, sir. I
shall attend to the details at once."
And wth nn assumption of gravity
equal to the captain's, I turned on milled and made for Tony's stall.
Tony still was In a playful mood
and again began to nudge me forcibly
with his nose and to snap at my hand
with his teeth. But I put a quick
stop to that with a sharp command
Tony thought I was serious; 1,1s ears
cocked up, his head raised and he
came to attention.
"Tony," 1 began In a level, intense
voice which made his ears go up another motcli. "Tony, yon are 111 Imminent danger. The captain says
so.     What do you think of that?"
He thought lt pretty rough on blm
and showed It by pawing his front
feet and looking at mc out of the corner of his eye.
"This Is no joke," I continued, "and
I must have your complete attention.
Do you know that the closest shniv
Is 500 miles away?"
Tony nodded his head.

A Cowboy Abroad
(Continued From Page Three)
1 was puzzled. "He likes it. Tom."
the first sailor cried. "B'li'me I
think he'd like for the tub lo go down
so he could huve a thrill. Ye raised
him on thrills, eh Tom?"
That explanation was all right for
the sailor, but it wasn't true. 1 continued to scratch my head to figure it
out, when Tony himself suddenly offered the explanation by sidling up to
me. his legs biaced and his neck arched.
"By George!" I shouted. "Now I
know. He thinks it's u saddle and
he wants me to ride him."
That incident began a trip which I
have been told was entirely unique
In the history of equine travel. Tony
was accepted as a member of the
ship 8 company and became the plaything for the ship. Passengers began to crowd around his stall and
his exercise space, admiring him and
studying his fine points. And. rather than being made fretful by these
attentions, Tony thrived on them. He
likes llattery and is aware when
he ls the center of attraction, "The
cynosure of ull eyes, "I might well
Bay, now that I've acquired my European polish
After that first experience with the
lifeboat it was impossible to keep
Tony confined In his quarters. Many
others Joined with the lad who first
asked me to bring Tony to the promenade deck, and the captain agreed to
let us have the run of the ship.
And so. the second day out, Tony,
apparently quite conscious of his im-
portauce, accompanied me on a tour
of Inspection. We went every place
it was possible to go, the only thing
stopping us from visiting even the
bridge being the Impossibility of
Tony's descending the narrow stairway. 1 believe to tliis day he could
have gone up it.
We were followed everywhere by
all the kiddies on board and by man;.*
of the grown ups as well. Their
pleas were so urgent that I finally got
up on Tony's back and rode him
through some of the saloons, and thi:
passage ways down the decks. We
did not venture into Ihe library, parlor, smokitig room or dining saloon,
as I was fearful Tony's hoofs migii;
injure fine rugs and polished floors.
But our tour was complete enough
aud Tony was happy and proud when
he returned to his stall.
However, I was uot finished for tne
day. As the children still clamored
for more, I had one of my late pictures, "Dick Turpin," screened for
them in the dining saloon.
Tony had a good rest the remainder of the day, but on the next came
the high spot of the voyage. The
trip, I was told, had already come to
be regarded aB the most pleasant
crossing children had ever had. Everyone on board was talking about
"that wild cowboy and his horse." 1
determined to go a step further.
The afternoon of Friday, April 10,
all the children on board were Invited to a surprise party to be held In
the main dining saloon of the ship.
when they had gathered, a wave o."
excitement swept round the room.
Friends of mine who were In the saloon at the time told me each youui;-
ster vied with the other In guessing
the big secret. They could hardly
contain themselves.
Then, suddenly, while the children
were still engaged In their attempts
tended services in the drawing room,
then spent the remainder of the day
and evening loafing about the decks
and in the many beautiful saloons--
including the dining room, I might
well add. for believe me, salt air certainly gives one an appetite.
But not so Tony. In his newest and
finest rainment—a scarlet cloak and
head covering—he was taken on parade by Pat Chrisiuan. And yuo should
have seen him strut! He was as prouil
as a cowboy with a new and gay kerchief thrown about his neck on the
big day In town.
1 awaked the morning of the fifth
day out with the realization that another day would find us in Europe.
Thut peculiar feeling of bewilderment
again assailed me. What would 1
find? Then, too, I was not unaware
I was somewhat of a popular figure.
These people I was about to visit and
see for the first time, had seen me
often. That realization—It wasn'i
the first time I had had It—made me
pause. I was again reminded of
Irvin Cobb's allusion to the gold fish
existence, for that, after all, to a
great extent. Is the lot ot every film
actor.
Say what you will about publicity
being tlle life of our popularity, whicn
It Is, there are plenty of us love privacy. Perhaps It's because we can't
have it that we do like it. In a
sense, we are on view all the time.
And now. within another twenty four
hours. I would be on view to people
many of whom liked mc In pictures
and whose affections I wanted to win
In person. How would they accept
me?
Happily, my disposition does not
permit me to worry long over possibilities. I have always preferred to
wait until time to act, and then aci
quickly. So now I hurried about the
many little things I wanted to do.
Chiefly these little things had to di
witli loafing and laughing, but I did
take time that afternoon on the sun
deck to put on the boxing gloves with
the Instructor. Nelson Keys who scored a big hit iu the United States as it
referee in several important bout*.!.
officiated In this encounter.
My opponent's name was Barnes,
a man lighter aud smaller than 1, but
quick and skilled. It was only i
workout—at least lt began with that
intention—and weight did not matter.
But Barnes stung me with a stiff blow
that was not on the program, and before I knew it I let him have a right
hook that pretty near spilled him. Wu
might have gone on and had u real
battle of it. but we both regained our
wits. and. smiling through our brushes went on with our tap-tap workout.
It was my first fast exercise since
leaving home and I enjoyed lt thoroughly.
The morning of April 14, what wil'i
the packing of trunks and hags, the
preparation for landing Cherbourg
passengers at daylight, alld the thrilling experience of seeing land after
being six days away from it, found
us with mure then enough to do; and
111 the excitement I quite forgot to
bother further over the trip and new
experiences which lay before me.
I did remember, however, while In
our suite, to take a last thrust at
Mrs. Mix. In the midst of our packing I tok a bottle of olive oil, rolled
up my sleeve and began to apply the
stuff tu my wrist.     I did it for some
culture. They shoot it in through
the wrist, don't they?"
A quick dodge saved me from a
well-aimed sponge.
Dawn was turning into sparkling
daylight over the jade green water of
the Cherbourg harbor by the time the
Aquitiinia hud discharged Into a
brisk liule tender Its passengers for
France and turned ahout for the passage to Southampton. .Myriads of
sea gulls floated near the great liner
or swam in the miraculously beautiful and placid water. Within n few

PACK TRAIL BEING
CONSTRUCTED TO LOCAL
MINERAL CLAIMS
Mr. Jack Blalock, well known contractor, ol" this district, is busily engaged constructing a pack trail trom
the bead of Comox Lake tn tbe Brunswick group or mineral claims, in lbc
Beaufort hills, distant about twenty
five miles from Cumberland and located near the headwaters of tbe-Oy
sfer and Crulckahank rivers and
Ralph Crock . The discovery of mineral fn this section of thc district was
made about eight years ago by .Mr.
John Brown, who lias been a woodsman and prospector for a number oi
years. Samples of ore taken from an
extensive ledge have assayed so s:.l
isfactorlly that Brown has been successful in interesting local parties,
who have staked about ten claims
aud who have decided lo do enough
development work to determine the
exact value of the rock. Assnys already made show the rock to contain
good values in gidd and copper. Prom
the claims the distance to Buttle;
Lake is short. !n this same distri'-i
a couple of years ago an Eastern company did a great deal of prospecting
and development work on claims that
had been recorded. These claims are
said to be rich in copper but ibe trai- ■
sportation problem would be the
greatest Io overcome. However, th;-;
same problem has been solved in otliei
mining areas and If the properties
already recorded prove thai development will be profitable there Is little
doubt tliat a mining town of considerable proportions will be built up.
There are those who are skeptical,
who have their doubts as to the probable value of the recent discovery
bin they are reminded that the same
condition prevailed among many of
tbe residents of Cowlchan Valley
when tbo copper discoveries were first
made on .Mount Sicker, a few miles
from D'uncan, Two copper mines
were developed there—the Lenora and
tbe Tyee aud both produced a great
deal of wealth for the operators and
spread prosperity over a wide area.
True, Ihese two mines have long since
been dosed down but while they
worked they were good producers and
it may be that when the Bunswlck
group of mineral claims have been
thoroughly proved, there will be a
repetition here of the same industrial
activity that prevailed at Mount Sicker for a number of years and that
helped io such an extent towards the
development of the town of Duncan.

Did you ever stop to figure that when you send a
suit or dress to the cleaners, you pay for the cleaning,
not barely removing the spots or patches of dirt?
This practice might improve the appearance of
your suit, but does not get to thc real injurious particles of dirt and grease imbedded in the material.
In our method your clothes are washed in pure,
clear gas until every spot of grease and dirt is removed, then they are turned over to experienced hands,

THE CUMBERLAND ISLANDER
FRIDAY,  AUGUST 21.  1925.
A Cowboy Abroad
(Cuntluued From Page Three)
I was puzzled. "He likes it, Tom,"
the first sailor cried. "B'U'rae I
think he'd like for Ihe tub to go down
so he could have a thrill. Ye raised
him on thrills, eh Tom?"
That explanation was all right for
the sailor, but It wasn't true. I continued to scratch my head to figure it
out, when Tony himself suddenly offered the explanation by sidling up to
me. his legs braced and his neck arched.
"By George!" I shouted. "Now I
know. He thinks it's u saddle and
he wants me to ride him."
That Incident began a trip which 1
have heen told was entirely unique
in the history ot equine travel. Tony
was accepted as a member of the
ships company and became the plaything for the ship. Passengers began to crowd around his stall and
his exercise space, admiring him and
studying his fine points. And. rather than being made fretful by these
attentions. Tony thrived on them. He
likes flattery und is aware when
he is the center of attraction, "The
cynosure of all eyes, "I might well
ssy, now that I've acquired my European polish.
After that first experience with the
lifeboat It was impossible to keep
Tony confined In his quarters. Many
others joined with the lad who first
asked me to bring Tony to the promenade deck, and the captain agreed to
let us have the run of the ship.
And so, the second day out, Tony,
apparently quite conscious of his Im-
portance, accompanied me on a tour
of inspection. We went every place
it was possible to go, the only thing
stopping us from visiting even the
bridge being the Impossibility nf
Tony's descending the narrow stairway. I believe to this day he could
have gone up it.
We were followed everywhere by
all the kiddies ou board and by many
of the grown ups as well. Their
pleos were so urgent that I finally got
up on Tony's back and rode him
through some of the saloons, and the
passage ways down the decks. We
did not venture Into the library, parlor, smoking room or dining saloon,
as I was tearful Tony's hoofs inign*.
injure fine rugs and polished doors.
But our tour was complete enough
and Tony was happy and proud when
he returned to his stall.
However, 1 was not finished for tae
day. As the children still clamored
for more, I had one of my late pictures, "Dick Turpln," screened for
them in the dining saloon.
Tony had a good rest the remainder of the day, but on the next came
the high spot of the voyage. The
trip, I was told, hud already come to
be regarded as the most pleasant
crossing children had ever had. Everyone on board was talking about
"that wild cowboy and his horse.'* I
determined to go a step further.
The afternoon of Friday. April 10,
all the children on board wcre invited to a surprise party to be held in
the main dining saloon of the ship.
when they had gathered, a wave of*
excitement swept round the room.
Friends of mine who were in the saloon at the time told me each youngster vied with thc other in guessing
the big secret. They could hardly
contain themselves.
Then, suddenly, while the children
were still engaged in their attempts
to solve the secret of entirely mysterious   Invitations,  the  door   to  the
tended services in tho drawing room,
then spent the remainder of the day
and evening loafing about the decks
and in the many beautiful saloons--
Including the dining room, I might
well add. for believe me. suit air certainly gives one an appetite.
But not so Tony. In his newest and
finest rainment—a scarlet cloak and
heatl covering—he was taken on parade by Pat Chrlsman. And yuo should
have seen him strut! He was as prouil
as a cowboy with a new and gay kerchief thrown about his neck on the
big day ln town.
I awaked the morning of the fifth
day out with the realization that another day would find us in Europe.
Thut peculiar feeling of bewilderment
again assailed me. What would 1
lind? Then, too, 1 wus not unaware
I was somewhat of a popular figure.
These people I was ahout to visit and
see for the first time, had seen me
often. That realization—It wasn't
the first time I had had it—made me
pause. I was again reminded of
Irvin Cobb's allusion to the gold tisii
existence, for thut, after all, to a
great extent. Is the lot of every film
uctor.
Say what you will about publicity
being the life of our popularity, whlcn
It ls, there are plenty of us love privacy. Perhaps It's because we can't
have It tbat we do like It. In u
sense, we are on view ull the time.
And ttow. within another twenty four
hours, I would be on view to people
many of whom liked me in pictures
and whose affections I wanted to win
in person. How would they accept
me?
Happily, my disposition does not
permit me to worry long over possibilities. I have always preferred to
wait until time to act, and then act
quickly. So now 1 hurried about the
many little things I wanted to do.
Chiefly these little things had to di
witli loafing und laughing, but I did
tuke time that afternoon on the sun
tleck to put on the boxing gloves with
the instructor. Nelson Keys who scored u big hit in the United States as u
referee in several important bouts,
ofllciuted in this encounter.
My opponent's name was Barnes,
a man lighter and smaller than 1, but
quick and skilled. It wus only i
workout—at least It began with that
Intention—and weight did not matter.
But Barnes stung me with a stiff blow
that was not on the program, and before I knew it I let him have u right
hook thut pretty near spilled him. We
might have gone on and had u reul
battle of It. but we both regained our
wits. and. smiling through our brushes went on with our tap-tap workout.
It was my first fast exercise since
leaving home and I enjoyed it thoroughly.
The morning of April 14, what with
the packing of trunks and bugs, the
preparation for landing Cherbourg
passengers at daylight, and the thrilling experience of seeing land after
being six days away from it, found
us with more then enough to do; and
In the excitement 1 quite forgot to
bother further over the trip and new
experiences which lay before me.
1 did remember, however, while in
our suite, to take a last thrust at
Mrs. Mix. In the midst of our packing I tok a bottle of olive oil, rolled
up my sleeve and begun to apply the
stuff to my wrist. I did it for some
lime before Mrs. Mix inquired, half
Impatiently.
"For goodness' suke Tom, whut ure
Did   you   hurt
culture. Tbey shoot it in through
the wrist, don't they?"
A quick dodge saved me from a
well-aimed sponge.
Dawn was turning into sparkling
daylight over the jade green water of
the Cherbourg harbor by the time tlie
Aqultanla bud discharged into a
brisk little tender its passengers for
France and turned about for the passage to Southampton. Myriads of
sea gulls floated near the great Unci'

PACK TRAIL BEING
CONSTRUCTED TO LOCAL
MINERAL CLAIMS
.Mr. Jack Blalock, well known contractor, of this district, is busily e;i-
gaget! constructing a pack trail from
the head of Comox Lake to the Brunswick group of mineral claims, in lhe
Beaufort hills, distant about twenty
five miles from Cumberland and located near the headwaters of tlic -Oyster and ('ruickshank rivers and
Ralph Creek . Tlie discovery of mineral in this section of the district was
made about eight years ago by Mr.
John Brown, who has been a woodsman and prospector for a number oi
years. Samples of ore taken from an
extensive ledge have assayed so satisfactorily that Brown has been successful in interesting local parties,
who have slaked about ten claims
and who have decided to do enough
development work to determine the
exact value of lhe rock. Assays already made show Ihe rock to contain
good values in gold and copper. Prom
the claims the distance to Buttles
Lake is short. In this same district
a couple of years ago an Eastern company did a great deal of prospecting
and development work on chums that
had been recorded. These claims are
said to be rich in copper but ihe trail-1
spnrtation problem would be the I
greatest to overcome. However, this
same problem has been solved in other
mining areas and if the properties
already recorded prove that development will be profitable there is little
doubt that a mining town of considerable proportions will be built up.
There are those who are skeptical,
who have their doubts as to the probable value of the recent discovery
but they are reminded that the same
condition prevailed among many of
ihe residents of Cowichan Valley
when the copper discoveries were first
made on .Mount Sicker, a few miles
from D'uncan. Two copper mines
were developed there—the Lenora and
Lhe Tyee and both produced a great
deal of wealth for the operators and
spread prosperity over a wide area.
True, these two mines have long since
been closed down but while they
worked they were good producers and
it may be that when the Bunswink
group of mineral claims havo been
thoroughly proved, there will be tt
repetition here of the same industrial
activity that prevailed at .Mount Sicker for a number of years and that
helped to such an extent towards the
development of the town of Duncan.

Dry Cleaning
Did you ever stop to figure that when you send a
suit or dress to the cleaners, you pay for the cleaning,
not barely removing the spots or patches of dirt ?
This practice might improve the appearance of
your suit, but does not get to the real injurious particles of dirt and grease imbedded in the material.
In our method your clothes are washed in pure,
clear gas until every spot of grease and dirt is removed, then they are turned over to experienced hands,
shaped and pressed on one of the latest steam garment
pressers.

But the one Improvement necessary
to make Comox Lake a mecca for
tourists is the connection of the East

from Comox Lake through Comox

to be twenty-two miles. Alberni

illy, mainly ihroiigb activity ln ber

never see the Courtenay or Cumberland districts. Many motorists visit
our section and hardly know that Alherni exists. Give us a road from
Alberni to Comox Lake and Cumberland wlll aiso enjoy the stimulus tD
business that results from the presence of the tourist. All publlc service institutions, including Boards of
Trade, and municipal councils, In the
Comox Alberni District as well as in

endorsed the proposal for the construction of this road. It must come
eventually;  why not now?
