A hotly contested football game was
played on the Recreation Grounds at
Cumberland on Sunday aftornoon, between Ladysmith Athletics and Cumberland United, In an Island League
fixture. Both teams were almost at
full strength, and as neither team had
met defeat In the League, a hard game
was expected. Thc following are the
names of the players representing
each team:
Cumberland:—Walker, goal; C. Wilkinson, right back; J. Williams, right
half-back; A. Wilkinson, left back;
Cairns, left half-back; Jackson, centre ; Bannerman, Corbett, Brown, Contt
and Hunden, forwards,
Ladysmith:—Shepherd, goal;Strang
and Wargo, backs; Wright, Strang and
Battle, half-backs; R. Battle, Heyland,
Rafter, Fairley and Hlrllnvaux, tor-
wards.
Referee, W. Burnlp, Nanaimo.
Ladysmith won the toss and decided
to play to the west goal. Cumberland
kicked off at 2.30 p.m. prompt, before
1500 spectators. Ladysmith pressed
the first minute of the game; Jackson
intercepted and let Cumberland forwards away. Shepherd saved a hard
shot from Corbett. Ladysmith returned the ball to the other end, but
did not seem dangerous, a shot resulting in a bye kick tor Cumberland. Cum
berland forwards worked the ball
nicely to Shepherd's end; Shepherd
saved a soft shot from Hunden. A free
kick for Cumberland outside the penalty area looked dangerous for Ladysmith. Corbett took the kick, passed
to Hunden, who just missed the goal
by inches. Ladysmith then got away
from the goal kick, and their forwards
showed some fine combination, only to
be broken up by Jackson and Williams.
Then it was Cumberland's turn at
Shepherd's end. A cross by Corbett
was taken up by Brown, but kicked
past the side. Numerous fouls oft
both sides seemed to spoil the play a
little at this stage. From a free kick
Ladysmith worked the ball to Walker's
end, which resulted In a goal kick.
Bannerman then got away on the
right wing, only to be stopped by
Wargo, who was showing great form.
Bannerman received a nasty kick at
this time, having to retire to the pavilion to get attended to. Ladysmith
passed again, but the ball was kicked
over Walker's goal At this stage the
game was very fast, the ball travelling
continually from one goal to another.
A free kick for Ladysmith resulted in
the ball being sent past the aide ot the
goal. It was then Cumberland's turn
to test Shepherd, a hard shot from
Brown forcclng Shepherd to give
away the firBt corner of tne game. The
kick was well taken by Hunden, Brown
headed the bal, but Strang cleared his
lines well, und let the forwards away.
Heyland was In great form und showed
some pretty work. Jackson stepped In
and again breaking up the combination of Ladysmith forwards. Jackson
was a tower of strength for Cumborland. Bannerman again appeared Ior
his aide after being oil" for fifteen minutes, and again tested Shepherd, but
Shepherd saved aud returned well to
let his side away. Heyland and then
Fairley tented Walker's ability us a
goalkeeper, but Walker was equal to
the occasion. Ladysmith was now
given a corner kick, but nothing resulted. The whistle then blew for
half time, thc rosult being no scoring.
The players retired to the pavilion
for the five minutes' Interval.
Ladysmith started the second half
with a rush but was checked by A. Wll
kinsou, which let Conti away, working
fine combination with Brown and Bannerman. Bannerman then had a try
at goal, but jimt went over the cross
bar. Ladysmith then carried tbe ball
to Walker's goal, but did not seem
dangerous. Wilkinson tackled and
kicking well, let Conti away again, but
Brown was pulled up for offside and
spoiled a good chance. Wilkinson
again returned nicely from a free
kick. Cumberland forwards seemed to
have settled down and were all over
Ladysmith defence, Shepherd being
tested a few times, and brought oil*
some of his old time saves, and in attempting to save a long shot from
Corbett, gave away a corner. Conti
missed an easy goal which seemed
certain, but kicked past tlie goal.
Again Brown got the ball from Jackson, j&s&ed it to Bannerman, and then
Bannerman crossed over to centre and
Brown got his foot on the ball and
scored the first goal of the game, giving Shepherd no chance whatever.
This seemed to put new life into the
game, and Ladysmith Vas determined
to show their skill, and their forwards
worked some nice combination nnd
seemed very fast. Wilkinson stepped
ln again and saved the situation. A
foul against Cumberland outside the
penalty area looked dangerous. Jackson Intercepted and cleared his lines
well. The game was now very fast,
each team trying to gain the advantage. Ladysmith got away on the
right, and Heyland beat thc Cumberland backs by nice work and scored
a fine goal, equalizing for his side.
The play after this was of a give
and take nature, Cumberland having
a few trys at Shepherd's goal, and a
well-contested game finished a one-
goal draw.

PAY! AND HELP THE BOYS
Tlie Cumberland United Football
Club are endeavoring to build up a
team second to none on the Pacific
Coast, und to travel from city to city,
and Lo visit the various places on the
coast they need money, and to be honest and pay their way they are' in the
inibii of taking up a collection on the
Recreation Grounds when games are
being played, to defray their expenses.
We ure requested to ask the young
men who attend the games to be liberal when dropping the coin Into the hat.
We are told that a number of young
men drop. In a live cent piece when
they can well afford to pay 50c, and
many palm the collector off by saying
they are "broke.'' It takes money to
run a football team around the country, so you are asked to pay.
A championship boxing contest wlll
be staged in the Ilo Ilo Theatre, Cumberland, on Saturday, October 11th,
when Jimmy Moore, of Nanaimo, will
box 15 rounds tor the championship
of British Columbia, at 135 pounds,
with ex-Scrg. Jimmy Clark, for three
years lightweight champion of the Can
adlaii and Australian Forces, 1917-18-
19. Tommy Moore was the lightweight
champion of the Canadian. Forces ln
England In 1915-16, and defended his
title In that time by meeting all comers until he was called to France, and
was there when Clark took the title
in 1917, and has not been defeated
since. Moore has been anxious to
meet Clark since that time, but this Is
the first chance he has had.
The Cumberlanl promoter knows
these boys and Is aware of what they
can do, and seized the opportunity of
matching them. The Cumberland
people have not had the chance to see
such a match staged here before, and
it looks as if the seating capacity of
the Theatre will be taxed to the limit.

itself upon his face, so, literally, does
his habitual conduct Impress itself
upon each organ and tissue of his
body. In order to keep perfect health,
then, it Is clear that we must begin
in the region of thc intellect.
To wish and to will are very different things. There are a thousand men
who wish where there is one man who
wills. Wishing is but a faint state of
desire; willing Is a state of the reason
and of the affections and of the will,
in activity, to secure what one desires.
A man may wish, and yet reject all
the steps nnd Instruments hy which
that wish can he carried into effect.
No man wills until he bus made up
his mind not only to have the end.
hut tn have all tho intermediate steps
and Instruments by which that end Is
to be secured.

To he sincerely true Is the beginning
of a great virtue.

A man without abilities rarely has
enemies; he may excite contempt, but
seldom rises Uo the dignity of being
an object of envy or hate.
So long as wc arc full of self, we
ure shocked at the faults of others.
Let us think often of our own short-
comlngs, and we shall he lenient towards those of others.
Dr. Oliver Wendell Holmes has said
u multitude of good things, but none
better than this: "Tlie human race
is divided into two classes—those who
go ahead and do something, and those
who sit still and inquire: 'Why wasn't
it done the other way?'"
OIK NEIGHBOR
Men see one phase of a person perhaps strongly exhibited, and straightway judges him hy that . They call
him selllsh or cruel, or passionate, or
revengeful, or unjust, or bigoted, as
he then appears, and suppose they
have defined his character, when they
have seen hut one phase of it. Perhaps, if they could wait and watch,
they would see him hating these very
faults in himself and weeping hitter
tears over them. Certainly, they would
see other and redeemable qualities.
Or they hear him uttering a strong
opinion upon some proposed measure,
some problem of the day, or some abstract idea, and at once classify him
according to their limited notions,
oiteu most unjustly. Another day he
might, with equal sincerity, show us
another phase of his mind which
would turn all preconceived notions
of him upside down. As we can never
fathom our neighbors, let us not try
to judge him on such* defective knowledge. Belter still, let us not judge
him at all. hut welcome from him tlie
sincere expression of whatever commands cur rospect or wins our sympathy, in the lull faith that everything true and good must at last come
into harmony.

Learn your business thoroughly;
keep at one thing; in nowise change;
always he ln haste, but never in a
hurry; observe system in all you do
and undertake. Whatever is worth
doing at all is worlh doing well. One
today is worth two tomorrows. Be
self-reliant; do not luke too much
advice, but rather depend on yourself.
Never fail to keep your appointments,
or to be punctual to the minute.
Never be idle, but keep your hands or
mind usefully employed, except when
sleeping.
Lawyers may quibble when upholding tho interests of another, may cm-
ploy the technicalities which arc the
weapons (It their profession to secure
thc verdict for which they labor; hut
gentlemen cannot quibble without detriment to their personal character.
Argument, when rightly and wisely
employed, is a qulckencr of the mental
faculties, and to be beaten ln an argument more generally proves the weakness of the side sought to he upheld
than of the advocate.
Happiness of whatever kind needs
utterance, prompt and joyful. Sadness
and gloom, pain and distress, may well
have the shield of silence to prevent
their diffusion; but everything that Is
bright, cheery and delightful should
he shared and Bpread as far as possible. Yet how frequently is this he-
versed, and the misfortunes of life
are disclosed in all their details while
its blessings are passively accepted
without remark! The shadows are
eagerly described, while of the sunlight nothing is said.

Electric Starting and Lighting
THE new Ford .Electrical System is as great an
achievement as the Ford Motor.
No better starting and lighting system is supplied
with any car—at any price.
See it for yourself. See it work. It is a complete
two-unit system, Starting Motor, Generator and
Battery—built into the Ford Motor—a product
of the Ford plant.
The Ford ter is also equipped with-the" Standard
Magneto to provide ignition independent of the
batteries.
The whole system is controlled from an instrument
board on the cowl.
It is now supplied as Standard Equipment on all
Ford Enclosed Models.
If yoU jtvill phone—or call—we will introduce you
to the Ford Sedan. You owe it to yourself to learn
why men who can afford big costly cars prefer the
Ford Sedan.

ONE OP THE GREATEST HELPS TO
GOOD TELEPHONE SERVICE
Telephoning ia regarded as so easy that many
people do not take the trouble to see that they telephone correctly. One should speak directly into the
instrument, with the lips but a short distance away.
When that is done, the voice does not need to be loud,
and, moreover, the person at the other end can hear
distinctly.
When children do so much telephoning, it would
be well to instruct them to telephone properly.
