FILMS
ON THE TO
Mutual "Masterpieces" and Famous Player Productions to
Be Shown  at Ilo Uo.
Arrangements have now been
completed for the showing on
one nlghl ench week of one of
the famous Mutual Masterpieces,
a brand of lilm produced by the
Mutual Film Corporation, each
subject being Aimed at great expense ancl with the most careful
attention to detail, and this fact,
together with clever, high-priced
actors and enthralling stories has
brought the Masterpieces'to the
front rank in Moving Pictures,
The programs which will be
shown here are brand new films,
on iheir lirst round in this territory, ancl will come to Cumberland direct from the Orpheum
Theatre, Vancouver. The Orpheum Theatre shows these six
reel programs three nights each
week, and recently "The Girl
From His Town," shown there,
broke all records for the three
nights. The lirst Masterpiece
program will be shown here next
week, but, as the cost of these
programs, together with extra
express is considerably greater
than for ordinary films, it is necessary to raise the admission
price to 15c. Many small towns
obtain 25c. for these special
shows. ,
Another brand of first class
films which will be shown after
the following week arc the Famous Players, with such world
famed stars as Mary Pickford,
Marguerite Clark, and many others in the top notch of the profession. One program of these
willjje shown each week, also at
15c. admission and as the programs are all six reels they will
bo well worth the additional five
cents.
On oilier four nights in the
week the price will be as usual
and films including Broadway
I'eaturs and the best to be had of
General, Mutual or Universal
films v ill be shown.

HENRY WALLER, ONCE
MERCHANT HERE, DIES
Mr. Henry Waller, a resident
of Victoria since 1864, and one
of the most widely known old-
timers of the community, passed
away on Sunday night at the
advanced age of 80 years.
The late Mr. Waller was one
of-the pioneer business men of
Victoria, and had a wide circle
of acquaintances. His first business connection was with deal's
resturant, Government street and
later when this was destioyed
by fire he decided to open a confectionery business which he established in the premises now
occupied by Clay's. A't a later
date he established a clothing
business in the Odd Fellows'
block on Yates street, later occupied by Gowen's. This however
was in 1889, on his return from
the east, where he spent seven
or eight years, part of the time
with Messrs. Putney & Co., Montreal, He took up farming on the
Carey Road in 190(1, and the year
following went to Cumberland
and entered business with Mi\
Parti idge as a general merchant.
It was in 1903 that he finally
returned to the city, retiring in
1903 ancl going to live with his
son, E. F. Waller, of 1075-Clare
Avenue.

auspices of the Women's Patriotic Society of Cumberland will

AI a moment when the American congress is debating whether it shall authorize four ships
and thereby consent to remain
indefinitely as the- third sea pow-
er, or will authorize six and take

significant,
Once again, in a manner that
is peculiarly interesting, Great
Britain is demonstrating the fact
lhat war hath no terrors for a
nation which is strong enough to
protect itself on the waves.
Contrast its position with that
of Germany, battling almost on
its own borders, cut off from
communication with the outside
world, its colonies conquered and
its commerce destroyed. Although engaged in a war without precedent in history, England
is proceeding steadily with its
great plans for knitting 'its far-
flung empire together and is permitted to so proceed simply because it dominates the ocean.
One victory of the German fleet
over the British fleet not only
would decide this war, but would
also decide the fate of the British Empire!
Because it has recognized the
fact that a nation which controls
the seas ever is free and never
has permitted its naval strength
to decline, Britain stands today
as the most important factor in
the world's politics, and the master of the present Entente alliance. With its fleet, the Allies
are more than a match for the
Central Powers; without its fleet
they would have been crushed a
year ago.
Nor need we Americans go to
Europe for instruction. The history of our own Civil War should
be a sufficient proofed' the tremendous constricting power of a
dominating Heel. Our squadrons strangled the Confederacy
to death; Britain's squadrons,
if the war last long enough, will
Strangle Germany lo death.

THE CANADIAN RED CROSS
What They Are  Doing For Canadian Prisoners Of
War.
The misfortune of the prisoner
of war is both spiritual and material or physical. He suffers
some of the pernicious effects ot
a prison sentence, the mental
lassitude and depression of confinement and isolation from his
kith and kin. ln addition he is
often badly clothed, lodged antl
fed. He is forced to accept a
very low standard of living, and
is like a man plunged into hopeless and squalid poverty. From
certain points of view he is the
most tragic of all war's victims.
The Canadian Red Cross is doing a great deal to improve the
prisoner's lot. It enters into
conespondence with him. It
keeps him in touch with his home
and uses all it's diplomatic influence to secure him better treatment from his captors. It saves
him from mental and moral deterioration. It keeps him in physical health [by constant supplies
of nutritious food. Up to the
end of December over $21000 had
been spent by the Canadian Red
Cross in sending food parcels
from Switzerland. The public
interest in this work is so great
that further contributions of $12-
000 were received during January. All through Canada the various branches of the Red Cross
are each doing their bit for the
prisoner of war.
There are 1400 Canadian prisoners. To 401 of these the Red
Cross is sendingmoney on behali
of persons who have "adopted"
them. The "adopters" make
themselves responsible for the
maintainance of the prisoner they
adept, and provide money for
regular parcels. There are 1174
olln r prisoners who receive main
tens nee from persons who act <)••
their own initiative, but keep
the Red Cross informed of all
their consignments.
It musl nol be imagined that
the prisoner of war is penniless,
lie has arrears of pay from his
ow ii gov ernment and is entitled
to a regular allowance from tin
German governmenl and will
the approval of the Canadian
government our Red Cross has
sent a card to all Canadian prisoners asking flu in lo assign ten
shillings of their pay to the Canadian Red Cross to cover part of
the cost of food supplies forwarded hy tli- Society. Five-
sixths of replies so far have been
in the affirmative.
There is now no need for any
Canadian to go hungry. The Canadian Rid Cross has indeed
successfully solved a very difficult problem. It has secured for
our prisoners privileges which at
first sec med impossible to secure.
By keeping our prisoners in good
health ancl good spirits it is saving many valuable lives for further usefulness in Canada.

"The Way of the Red Cross,"
by E. C. Vivian and T. H, Williams, is made memorable by a
holograph preface written by
Queen Alexandra, and contains
very vivid and dramatic sketches
of Reel Cross work in all its
branches. It is a succession of
stories collected from wounded
soldiers in various hospitals.
"With tbe Royal Army Medical
Corps a! the Front," by l'l. C.
Vivian, (Published by lhe Daily
Telegraph at 25c.) rontains a
very illuminating account of the
history,   duties   and   services of
the medical  branch of military
service, w.itb which the Red Cross
collaborates.
These are only a few books
out of many dealing with the fascinating SUbjecl of Red Cross
work. A perusal id' such books

Teaching a Stubborn Pupil.
Denmark, while friendly to
the Allies because of its old-time
dispute with Germany over coveted territory, has not failed to
turn a thrifty penny liy selling
to its beleagured neighbor the
food supplies for which the latter
was prepared to pay advanced
prices.
In point of fact, certain elements in Denmark seem to feel
that the Entente nations should
relax the blockade in its special
case, in order that it might bring
in food to replace that which had
been shipped across the southern
horder.    Naturally, this plan did

A  Little  Bit  For the Wife
Two navvies working on a Job some
distance away from their homes had
been paid, and were sauntering down
the main street of the village where
they were lodging. Passing the post
office, one of them darted inside, and
came out with a postal order for sixpence.
"Hullo," the other said, "do ye go
go ln for competitions, Bill?"
"Competitions?" queried Bill. "What
do yer mean? Can't a fellow send
a bit of money home to his wife?"
Especially  Feet
He—Smith is a man .if great parts.
She—I should say so! I danced
with him one night and wasn't able
to walk  for a  week  after it
A   Previous   Engagement
The young couple had lieen watching Ih" yachl  race, when one of the
"starters" fouled a buoy
'Harry, dear," said the sweet young
thing, remembering liis tales of yachl
lag days, "have yuu ever been lowed
In?"
"Nn," answered her somewhat
absent-minded tinner* feelingly, "tint,
by Jove! it can't li" worse than lining  toed  OUt."
Easy
She—raps says "we ought not to
marry unless we have a good bank
account back of us.
He—Well, his wife will do, won't lt?
Uncle   Enh.   Rema-I"
when th' wlnimen used t' take their
hair down at, night. Nowadays Ihey
take It off. An' skirts used t' lie th'
shape of a full moon lusted of almost
ft total eclipse.
His Verdict
Old Grouser felt extremely ill, and
sent for the doctor, w-lio examined
him carefully, and looked rather gra.e.
"Oti, doctor," cried the old man,
"do you think  I'm  going to die?"
"My dear sir. of course not," an*
swered tbe medico, smiling. "I assure
you that's the vory last thing that is
llki ly to happen to you! "
He   Was   Pardoned
First    Passenger:    "I   rancy  y ur
ninth, r ovi r tin re has a lurch ol seasickness.    Perhaps you'd  belter look
after her."
Second Passenger: "The lady [g my
mother-in law."
'First Passengeg*: "A thousand pardons."
Cutting
"When l played Hamli' on one i c
cation," boasted the old actor, "it l" ik
Ho audience half an hour 'to li .1 ■ ■
tho theal.ro."
"Indei 'I"" asked the young one.
"What was llie matter with li'm! Was

Really   Mean
Jinks and Binks were discussing a

-wnnhin't she rather have a geld watch
-when she's nineteen." FOI !
