Apps was requested to report the matter to the School Board.
Mrs. M. B. Partridge, on behalf of
the Visiting Committee, said she had
visited most of the rooms, that harmony prevailed between teacher and
pupil, with good results. She stated
that some of the rooms were without
electric light which during the present
dark days made It difficult to get on
with the work of the school and suggested that the Trustees be requested
to look into the matter.
The President suggested that tbe
Executive Committee interview the
School Board on the question of light

as a Visiting Committee to the Public

T'-e Editor, Cumberland Islander,
Jear Sir;—
For three years the Cumberland
Public Library Association hare endeavored to meet the demands for a
wholesome and varied collection *.*f
books, and through our association
with the Cumberland Literary and
Athletic Club we have been able to
offer a range of reading matter rarely equalled in a city of this size.
1 am sure that our efforts have been
appreciated. The circulation llsut
bear adequate testimony to that fact.
But I am compelled to beg for a
greater interest in the administration
of this public convenience. Our annual meeting surely merits a greater
attendnnce of the subscribers and I
would ask you lo draw special attention to the notice appearing in this
week's issue of The Islander,
Yours sincerely

KEEP IT TO YOURSELF
Learn to laugh. A good laugh is
better than medicine. Learn how-
to tell a story. A well-told Btory Is
as welcome as a sunbeam in a sick
room. Learn to keep your own
troubles to yourself. The world Is
too busy to care for your Ills and sorrows. Learn to stop croaking. If
you cannot see any good In the world
keep tho bad to yourself. Learn to
hide your pains and aches under a
pleasant smile. No one cares to hear
whether you have the earache, headache, or rheumatism. Don't cry.
Tears do well enough ln novels, but
they are out ot place in real life.
Learn to meet your friends with a
smile. The good humored man or
woman Is always welcome, but the
dyspeptic or hypnchandrlac is nut
wanted anywhere, and Is a nuisance
as well.
BEWARE OF THREE WOMEN
Beware of three women—the one
who does not love children, the one
who does not love (lowers, and she
who openly declares she does not like
other women. There Is something
wpnted In such, and In all probability
Its' place ls supplied by some unlovely
trait. Men may smile and jest a little
o\^'r the tenderness lavished on n
baby, but, after all, the prattle every
womanly woman involuntarily breaks
Into at tho sight of the tiny beingB is
very sweet to masculine enrs. it was
the first language they ever knew,
and, in spite of the Jest or the smile,
the sweetest on wife's or sweetheart's
lips. Men may laugh, too, at the
little garden tools, which seem like
playthings to their strength, but in
their-hearts they associate, and rightly, refinement of character and life
with the pursuit of gardening. And
as for the woman who does not care
for her own sex, and boldly avows It.
she creates only on unfavorable im
presslon against her own self for a
sweeping condemnation of a sea
which embraces innumerable ex
nmples of all that is beautiful and
worthy In human character. Wc
heard a woman say the other evening: "Children nre such little beasts
and there Is no peace In the home
until they are put to bed. Raising
flowers Is such a waste of time. I
would rather be with men and talk
with men any time than to listen to
the silly prnttle of ulot of women."
This freak now knows what we think
of her.
OUT OF THE NIGHT
Out of the roar of automobiles rushing by with the cutout wide open, out
of the whine of the jazzing saxa-
phone, out of the whir of the world's
machinery speeded up to highest gear,
out of the static that tills the cool
night air, we heard a voice raised In
prayer. And this ls what we heard:
We remember gratefully the da.s
of old. We thank Thee for those
silences and whiteness, well nigh
eternal and infinite, iu which God
wrought iu natural manners here ere.
ating a measureless opportunity and
advantage in soil and sky, river aud
rock, foreBt and climate—a challenge
for the hands and hearts which should
meet and master the nascent energies
and build commonwealth In these new
realms for the glory of God and the
good of man.
"So we thank Thee for our fathers
and mothers .who, by Thy good spirit,
wrought righteousness, while they
stopped the mouths of wild beasts,
quenched the violence of the prairie
tire, rocked their children to sleep
with the wolf's howl shivering the
quiet night, overcome the savage and
the pestilence, conquered poverty,
turned wilderness into gardens, aud
transformed hot deserts Into fields
where bloom the rose and cornflower
and where ripen apples of gold In pictures of silver."
Then the roar, and the whine, and
tbe whir, and the static drowned out
the voice and the mad world rushed on
in its dance of pleasure.

Of course no one enjoys having to use a neighbor's
telephone. Yet the phone haa become such a necessity that, if one hasn't a phone, it can't be helped now
and then.
Good neighbors don't say anything but it must
annoy them. Naturally your neighbor says she

ELECTRO-AUTOMATES
••■■(AUTOMATIC ELECTRIC LAMPS)"
NO BATTERIES! - NO ACIDS!
tbO.UUWILL LAST A L1FE.f|MEtpO«"u
Practical, Durable, Always Ready on Land, Under
Water, Any Climate, Anywhere
The Electro Automate Is an Electric Lamp made In France wllh-
oul a battery or refills, and of a new conception. It is a perfect
machine; ilic tesult of .\enrs of test ln the plants of the manu-
facturera iu Switzerland und France ::Thfa marvellous little
pocket lamp, embodying simplicity, reliability and compactness,
weighs onlj 12 ounces,     It Is patented In all countries.
The dynamo, witli permanent magnet, based on new methods,
gives dense magnetic llelds of perfect concentration, which surrounds Ihe induction without loss ot magnetic dispersion, and
permits the maximum exploitation of the energy.-
Construction of these lamps Is very carefully carried out by
skilled Swiss clock and scientific Instrument makers :: Electro
Automate Lamps are light and dust-proof. They can be used
In all climates, Including equatorial regions. They will everywhere render lhe utmost service, giving a clear white light, without fear of the bulb burning out or the generator bcomlng
warm.
All Electro Automate Lamps are guaranteed for six months, conditionally that they are not tampered with. With reasonable
care they wlll last for years. Any part can be renewed at slight
cost.    Lamps are provided with a pocket for extra bulbB.
This lamp is especially useful to travellers, tourists, marine and
mining engineers, automobilists, dairymen, in fact everybody.
They ure Indispensable on life-boats and rafts, where a light Is
needed that will not be extinguished by wind or wave :: Every
mine should be provided with one or more of these lamps at Its
portal or entrance, for the convenience of the employee or official
whose work takes him In und out ot the mine at Irregular intervals. It Is the cheapest and best light on the market for this
purpose :: Marine engineers welcome Electro Automate ln their
engine room. It saves them from the aunoyance and loss of
time occasioned by the unreliability of battery lamps when they
wish to locale trouble or find something in a hurry :: Pilots are
favorable to these little lamps because they are always standing
by ready and able to do their part In any and all kinds of
weulher. They are hardy little fellowB and will stand any
amount of knocking about, even to the bulbs, which are superior
to any others on the market :: Mushers over the northern trails
lake these lamps In preference to others, because they give a
never ending light and add less than a pound of weight to their
outfits, The winds can't blow them out nnd tho snow or wet can
not short circuit them.
DIRECTIONS
The working of this self-generating lamp is very simple. Pull the
lever completely und sharply with the fingers and let go, allowing
ll to open fully In order lo take another full stroke. Strokes
should be even und sharp for best results. This lamp ls the
only one of its weight (lint will give a perfect light. The bearings of this lump should be oiled about once a month.

THE INDUSTRIAL
OUTLOOK IN 1921
Forecasts of conditions in Canada
during 11)24 contributed by several
hundred manufacturers to the Annual
Review Number of Industrial Canada
are ln the main optimistic. Some tin
per cent, of the reports received express the opinion tliat business in
11)24 will be better than It was in
1923. The remaining 40 per cent,
are less hopeful, ranging from those
who expect business to be about the
same as it was last year to those wbo
are frankly pessimistic regarding the
outlook.
Reviewing conditions during 1923,
lt ls found that in a good many lines
business was spotty, some months
showing favorable returns and others
falling back in a discouraging way.
Disturbed world conditions continued
to exert an unfavorable influence and
many of tbe manufacturers reporting
contend that, until these conditions
right themselves, there cannot be a
genuine revival in business in Canada. Low prices of agricultural pro.
ducts, due to tiie stulu of International markets, nre preventing lhe tanner from again becoming a strong factor lu the market for manufactured
goods, uud this condition is affecting
particularly the manufacturers of
agricultural Implements.
Un tbe other hand there have been
lu Canada certain developments which
have tendered to ollset these unfavorable conditions. Activity in the
automobile industry wilh its various
ramillcations .continued expansion In
the pulp und paper industry, further
developments ln mining, the extenson
on large scale of hydro-electric works,
the construction of canals and docks,
the building of considerable new railway equipment, the good roads program, and thc fulrly active year In
general construction have all contributed to keep the wheels of Industry
going In Canada.
Conditions have therefore varied
largely with the typo of Industry.
Thus, while the agricultural Implement manufacturer has been experiencing dull times, the manufacturer
of automobiles has had a busy . ear.
All thoso industries which are dependent upon the automobile Industry
biivo shared In Its activity.     Again,
industries like the woolen textile In-
dutry and the boot and shoe industry
have been finding that the low tari:f
on British goods has permitted large
quantities of these goods to enter
Canada, and this has so cut Into their
business that operations have bad to
be curtailed. Against this condition
may be placed the activity in the pulp
and paper industry, where newsprint
mills In particular have been breaking records in production and export.

News Of British Columbia
Tremedous strides are being made
In the lumbering and allied Industries
in British Columbia. Hon. J. D. Mac-
Lean .acting minister of lands, announces tbat the total timber scale
for the year 1923 was 2,542,280,000
board feet, an Increase of nearly 31
per cent .over 1922, when thc scale
amounted to 1.809,158,000 board feet.
Vancouver district scale was l,90i!,-
103.360 ft., or more than the amount
for the whole province in 1922. An
increase of 60 per cent, was made In
the Prince Rupert district for the
year.
Lumbering is by far the most important Industry in the province, and |
through the following of some con-
servatlon methods and fire protection,
as adopted by the department of lands,
under Hon. T. D. Pattullo .the timber j
resources of   British   Columbia    ure
nearly luexhaustable. This province
Is estimated to have 400 billion feet
of standing timber, with an annual
Increase through growth alone of S
billion feet. The capacity of the'
saw-mills is about three billion feet,
while a certain amount of timber ir.
destroyed each year through fire. But
the timber cut and burned does not
represent more than half the natural
increase.
In an endeavor to safeguard both
motorists and pedestrians, Attorney-
General Manson announces a new
regulation affect ing Ihe use of spot-

Recognizing the value of the British
Empire Exhibition as an advertising
medium for British Columbia In gen.
oral, and lis possibilities in particular, the provincial Department of Agriculture lias collected together for
display at Wembley Park the met
comprehensive collection of representative British Columbia products
ibnl lias ever been assembled. The
exhibit in question will embrace every
angle of lhe fruit growing Industry J
and It wlll also include an unparal
leled collection of grains, grasses,
roots, seeds and so on. It is worthy
of note that one of the special collected features of this splendid collection will specimens of tobacco,
sweet potatoes and various kinds of
nuts from the interior of the Province.
How extensive the exhibit wUl be is
illustrated by the fact that the fruit
section alone will comprise 800 boxes
of all varieties.
It will have been observed that
Permler Oliver has continued his
campaign for the equalisation of
freight rates among the United Farmers of Alberta. His address to this
distinguished gathering the other day,
while more or less a reiteration of the
forcelblc arguments which he has been
advancing in many parts of the country during the Inst year, must have
convinced the people of the neighboring province to the enst that Mr. Oliver
Intends to leave no stone unturned lu
his efforts to have adjusted a condition of affairs which has worked very
considerable hardship In respect of
British Columbia's general development.
Premier Oliver is strenuously op.
posing tbe application of the express
companies for higher rates, stating
that It Is Inconceivable that the present western express rates should be
Increased. On the contrary ,he asserts that the nollwoy Board should
inder a reduction In thc present rates
as they affect British Columbia,

VICTORIA—A political battle, the
like of which seldom has been seen in
this Province, is now on. It is not
a private fight, but promises to be a
free-for-all with broadsides, raking
shots, boarding parties and hand-to-
hand encounters, with no quarter
given or asked.
For some time past, A. D. McRae
and his political associates have been
levelling charges of wrong-doing an.I
mismanagement against the Government and the Leader of the Opposition, culminating in definite charges
Ihat Hon. W. Sloan and Mr. W. J.
Bowser had each received $50,000 from
the Pacific Eastern Railway Company
in 1916.
Hon. W. Sloan made a demand on
Premier Oliver that a Royal Commission he appointed and the request has
been fully met by Mr. Oliver.
So fully has it been met that the Attorney-General lias amended the Public Enquiries Act to allow thc commission   to  explore  the  records   and
motive of the    parties    making    tho
charges, including the origin of Pro-
j vincial   Party  funds,  nearly    all    or
whicli have been put up by McRae.
I    The      Premier,      Attorney-Genera!
| Manson and Hon. W. Sloan, in speak-
j Ing in  the  Legislature  recently outlined some of the high lights of the
career  of  the   "unscarred    veteran."
General  A. D.  McRae, in  connection
with such exploits as Port Mann town-
site; thc Saskatchewan Valley Colonization Company; the Pacific Whaling
Company and other stock promotions.
Referring to the charge that he hnd
a working agreement  with  Mr. Bowse1', Premier Oliver said:
"That statement has absolute!!/
no foundation in fact, and yet this
man is appealing to the electors of this
country with a publication the first
words of which are 'Let there bo
Light'. I echo that —'Let there be
Light', Let ii shine upon myself and
upon Mr. Bowser, and I propose that
it shall shine with equal brilliance
upon the men who are impugning my
motives and my conduct today."
