SUBSCRIPTION PRICE: TWO DOLLARS PER ANNUM.
Exciting Thrills
In New Picture
Anita Stewart in her latest
Associated First National Pictures release, "Playthings of
Destiny," which will be shown
at the Ilo-llo Theatre on Friday
and Saturday, is a story of Julie
Laneau, who was unwittingly led
into marrying a man she did not
love when she was really the
wife of the man she did love, is
exercising an appeal that but few
films shown here during the paft
few months have had.
Miss Stewart does some of the
best work of her career in depicting the emotions of a woman who
has no choice but to believe that
the man she loves with all her
soul has tricked her into marriage
when he has a legal wife still living. Her flight from his cabin
through a raging-blizzard, her
losing fight against the elements
and then her rescue, provide a
series of tense incidents which
hold the large audience tense in
their seats.
One such spectacle is enough
to put the production in the
list of exceptionally-staged productions, but later a tornado
is shown at the height of its de-
structiveness in Jamaiac. Persons
and objects are whirled about on
the screen in the grip of the
colossal wind. The clearing
away of misunderstandings between Julie and her real husband
and lover comes while the tornado is raging, at the moment when
both believe they are facing
death.
Lloyd (Ham) Hamilton will be
seen in a two reel comedy along
with "Playthings of Destiny."
A matinee will be held Saturday at 2:30 p. m. On Monday
and Tuesday Constance Binney
is presented in "The Case'of
Becky," and on Wednesday and
Thursday, Tom Mix will be seen
in "The Big Town Roundup."
CHILDREN'S BANQUET
The Ladies Auxiliary are giving
a banquet to the children of all
ex-service men, also to the children of members of the Ladies'
Auxiliary on Easter Monday,
April 17th, from 2:30 to5. In the
evening a social will be held for
ex-service men, wives, sweethearts, friends, from 9 to 12.
Friends of the organization who
would like to donate fruit, cakes,
etc. for the children's treat are
asked to leave them at the hall
between 12 and 1, April 17th,
Mr, Chas. Reynolds and Mr. J.
Kennedy left Vancouver for the

Easter Cantata
Special Meeting Of Cumberland
Board Of Trade Well Attended
There was a large and representative gathering at a special meet-
ingof the Cumberland Board of Trade held in the Council Chambers
on Tuesday evening last, with Mr. J. Sutherland as chairman. A
great deal of correspondence was read including one from the Vancouver Chamber of Commerce re B.C. Invitation Week and that coal
was omitted from the industrial list of the Vancouver Publicity
Bureau, also the various replies concerning the importation of Japanese coal already published.
Mr. Thomas Graham, the representative of the Cumberland Board
to the convention of the Associated Boards of Trade gave a very
interesting and detailed report of the business transacted by that
body, giving facts and figures concerning the resolution on an additional import duty on Fuel Oil, which was adopted as introduced
Mr. Graham spoke very highly
BASKETBALL
An invitation has been extended
to local basketers to send a representative to the provincial
organization meeting in Vancouver on April 22nd, 1922. Mr.
Stanley V. Smith, secretary of the
Vancouverand District Basketball
League, which is fostering the
movement to organize the governing body, has sent this invitation
to theeditor of this paper asking
that it be turned over to the
proper authorities.
The time is certainly ripe for
the organization of a British Columbia Basketball Assn. and it is
to be hoped that every district
and city in the province will be
represented at the organization
meeting. The Vancouver officials
are asking basketball leaders in
all districts to communicate with
Mr. Smith at once, and even if
they are not able to send representatives, at least to write and
say that they are in line with the
action.
The basketball game has been
booming in British Columbia this
winter as never before, and if
any reasonable means of awarding provincial championships is to
be arrived at there must be an
organization in charge.

CARD OF THANKS
Cariboo Gold Rush
Grace Methodist Church
Hct. G. B. Kinney.
Junior Congregation at 11 a. m.
Special United Service at 7 p. m.
Until the spring really opens
and the ground is thawed out we
would warn would-be miners
against taking the Caribou gold
talk as really gospel. Almost
every creek in the Upper Country
is more or less gold bearing and
a couple of decent sized nuggets
have started a big gold rush before now. Some of us have not
forgotten the "Steamboat Mountain" episode, and last spring
there was a great deal of golden
talk as to China Bai and other
placer prospects on the Fraser
River. We hope that gold in paying quantities will be fo»nd in
the Cariboo—anyway prospectors
will be well-advised to pack into
the Cariboo tools and food enough
to maintain them until such time
as they havelocatedand registered
a claim. Another important item
for the seeker of gold-take some
gold with you, about $250, it will
help to pay for transportation
and other incidental expenses.
Recently, hot water was served
free at a Scotch picnic in a town
not a thousand miles from Cumberland; and yet some people say
the Scotch never give anything
away.
March, 29th. A Resolution to
cut out of the Elections Act the
section which, last election, dis<
enfranchised thousands of women
because they were wives of natur-
alis'dmen, as was not formerly
required. The member for Comox-
Alberni drew attention to the
sections which allowed Asiatics
to vote last election. Hoped many
other sections would be elimim-
ated when this one was. Resolution passed.
March 30th. Dr. J. H. King,
Minister of Public Works and
Cabinet representative for B. C.
took his seat. Long debate on
merits of strike of coal miners in
Nova Scotia. Lot of talk about
"Reds." Member for Comox-
Alberni pointed out that what
produced "Reds" was a rankling
sense of injustice produced by
many of our industrial and
social conditions and if the government would do away with
those unjust conditions, the so-
called "Redness" would die a natural death. Again asked for
withdrawal of N. W. M. Police
from B. C. saying he had nothing against them, fine body of
men, only they were not needed.
March 31st. Time mostly spent
badgering the Minister of Labor
who was trying to get his estimates passed. A good deal of
political enmity in it although
the Minister was very tactful.
Mr. Neill urged the curtailment
of the numerous and useless gov
ernment returns. The Minister
promised to give it attention
April 3rd.  Routine work.
Cumberland United advanced
another step in the league table
on Sunday last when they defeated Victoria Mets by a score of
two goals to one. The visitors
came up with a much weakened
team, whilst Cumberland were
short of Kenny, who is still under the Doctor's care. The game
started at 3 o'clock and was over
at 4, only 30 minutes being played each way. It is hardly fair
to spectators who pay their fifty
cents to see a football game,
which should go the full 45 minutes each way, to have it cut
down to 30 minutes. The game
should have been started at 2
o'clock thus allowing full time
each way, to be played. But, ye
gods, one hour of the class of
football served up last Sunday
was enough for any fan. There
was no more pep in the game
than there would be to a young
schoolboy's game.
The Cumberland team are capable of playing a much better
game. It might have been that
they were not extended as they
were the week previous. Harrison scored the first goal for Cumberland, the visitors equalising
from a penalty shortly after.
Appleby put Cumberland in the
lead, scoring with a fast shot.
No further scoring took place,
Cumberland winning a poor game
by the odd goal.
To all friends whose sympathy and
services were so kindly tendered in our
time of bereavement, we desire to extend
our sincere thanks.
DUNCAN BENNIE AND FAMILY
JOHN BENNIE AND FAMILY
Mr.A.W.Ncill, M.P. for Comox-
Alberni, made a curious break in
the Commons in connection with
the debate on the Elections Act.
He stated that the G.W.V.A. were
mainly responsible for the denial
of the franchise to Asiatics. Mr.
Neill is wrong. The "others" he
mentioned comprised every sane
and thinking man in the Province
of British Columbia. One day,
perhaps, some of the B.C. born
Asiatics may be given the vote,
but the time is [not yet. There
are too many larrakin Chinese
boys in this Province.
The little girl, who hasher eye
on one of the staff of this office
has so staitled the minister with
her up- to-date dress that he exclaimed, "Oh, fashion what shins
are permitted in thy name."
AUSTIN ORCHESTRA DANCE
The Austin Dance Orchestra
gave another of their popular
dances in the Ho Ho hall on Monday evening last, Arecordcrowd
was present to greet this aggregation of professional musicians
all of whom are members of the
Vancouver local of the Musicians
Union. Dancing was kept up
until 2 a, m. a most enjoyable
time being spent by all present.
Announcement was made that a
return visit will be made early in

Ansen Club Concert
A concert will be given Thursday, April 27th in the Anglican
Church Hall, by the Ansen Junior
Musical Club. These young
people have been meeting once a
week during the winter months to
spend an hour singing, and now
h»ve quite a repertoire of song".
Mrs. Frost deserves a great deal
of credit for the trouble she has
taken to help the children as it is
only owing to her generosity and
good nature that they have had
the advantage of these musical
evenings. A cordial invitation if
extended to allwhoare interested
to attend. A silver collection will
betaken to defray the expenses ol
the hall rent, also for song books
for a number of children who
cannot afford them. The interesting program for this concert
will be announced next week.
Local Church
Making Progress
A recent visitor to Cumberland,
. C, writes that he was much
gratified and surprised at the
marked progress evident in the
Methodist Church since a former
visit, a few months ago.
The Juvenile Service which
Rev. Geo. R. Kinney, F. R. G. S.
conducts every Sunday morning,
is meeting with good response
from the cl ildren and young
people. The whole service is for
them, and the children participate
freely in many ways; even the
morning choir is a juvenile choir,
and thesingingis bright and good;
The evening service lakes more
of the usual form, and on the
Sunday of the visit was well
attended, and helped greatly by a
choir of nearly forty people. Mr.
Charles O'Brien is the capable
leader and Mr. C. Edwards the
organist. A movement is on foot
led by Mr. E. W. Bickle, to install at no very distant date, a
pipe organ, which, if successful,
as it no doubt will be, will prove
an event ofgreat interest to the
city.
The pastor and his wife are
both keenly interested in young
people, with whom Ihey are deservedly   popular.    There   is   a
Boys'  Club  and a   Girls'  Club,
which between them have no less
than twelve enthusiastic basketball teams.    The .Sunday School
has done  line  work  under the
guidance of Mr. A. .J. Fouracre.
A novel method of stimulating
interest has been  originated by
Rev. G. Kinney.   "Credit cards"
have been printed and any boy or
girl may obtain one.    For each
attendance at church,  or club,
and for certain other things,  a
"credit" is punched on the card.'
When so many credits have been
obtained the possessor of tiie card
is entitled to a prize, and so on.
The scheme is proving a One aid
to the objects in view.
At Grantham, a rural appointment of the Cumberland circuit
(twelve miles distant) the congregation is growing and the
work steadily advancing in organization. It is understood a church
will be built at this point, for
which a site has already been
secured. - WeeUrn Melhoditt Recorder,
— The Saturday Review June.
Mrs. Hicks is so painfully neat that slit
makes life miserable for her family. Oni
of her rules is that all members of the
household must remove their boots before
entering the house.
'Bill," she remonstrated one day witli
fher husband.   "I found a grease spot on
one of the dining-room chairs and I think
it came off tho^e trousers you wear in
the shop."
A brief silence ensued, then a volcantt
eruption. "Well, Mirandy. for the lasi
fifteen years I have taken off my boots
every time I came into this house, but I'll
be hanged if I'll go farther"

L'lrrsif the Temperance
niove.;i"ti' In relation to total
Abstinence lumthe useof intox-
icaiing liquors on Ihe part of the
individual, are based chiefly upon
two grounds or considerations,
The first is, that a man is much
better without them, physically
and morally, as far as he himself
is concerned. Of this we have an
abundant and absolutely overwhelming supply of scientific
and professional testimony of
eminent pathologists, who have
given special attention to the action of alcohol upon both mind
and body. They all testify with
a most convincing and remarkable unanimity, and such action
is only evil, and that continually;
and this finding of scientific men
of the highest reputation is amply
borne out and confirmed by the
innumerable testimonies of those
who have put the principles to
the test of a personal and practical application.
There are thousands who are
ready to endorse with their own
experience, the testimony borne
to the virtues of total abstinence
from intoxicating drinks given
by Thomas Guthrie, when he
said; "I have tried both ways;
I speak from experience: I am
in good spirits because 1 take no
spirits; I am hale because I use no
ale; I take no antidote in the form
of drugs because I take no poison
in the form of drinks. Thus,
though in thr first instance I
sought only the public good, I
have found my own also since I
became a total abstainer. I have
these four reasons for cotinuing
to be one, (1) my health is
stronger; (2) my head is clearer;
(3) my heart is lighter; (4) my
purse is heavier."
Another ground upon which
the temperance movement in re
lation to individual abstinence
I from intoxicating liquor is based,
I is that not only is a man much
', better without their use as a bev-
i erage himself, but that it is the
only way in which his hands can
be free from the rescue and reformation of others who have been
| ensnared and enslaved by intem-
| perance.
An ancient story, entitled,
"How to Move the World" tells
of a young mechanic of humble
rank, who was deeply impressed
with the teachings of a philospher
who came to Athens one day,
and saw that they were just the
doctrines needed to revolutionize
and reform society; but he did
nothing but bewail the obscurity
of his position and the littleness
of his influence, saying, "Oh that
1 were rich or famous, I would
move tho world soon."
One day the sage heard him
complain with himself and said
"Young man the word is writ
for all, let him that would move
the world move just himself.
Thou askest a place to stand on
hereafter and move the world.
Take it where thou standest, and
begin now; reform thy little self,
and thou hast begun to move the
world." There is a pertinent little
moral in the old story, as applicable to the point in question.
He who would assist in bringing
to an end the widespread intent
perance over which he professes
to mourn, must beoin at home,
by the renumeraticn of that
which is the acknowledged cause
of the evil. So long as he sanctions, by the influence of his personal example, the social drinking
habits which lie at the root of
evils and mischiefs over which
he mourns, he can no more be
successful in bringingtotheshore
of sobriety and safety those who
have been caught by the destructive flood of intemperance, and
are slowly sinking beneath it,
than he could rescue a man who
is literally and actually drowning
with his hands tied fast behind
him. And how much personal
influence and power for is lost
to many people/both in the church
and out of it, by thus simply
hand-cuffing themelves, by so-
called moderation in the use of
alcoholic liquors, it would be impossible to estimate, but it must
be as great as it is lamentable.
"Me too, Mother!
"I want a slice of Bread and
butter."
This little boy knows what is
good.
He knows what satisfies the
hungry feeling that real, live
boys and girls have all the time.
A loaf that is flour and compressed yeast and milk and shortening is bound to measure up
its a real satisfying food.

Hints For The
Busy Housewife
This delicious pudding is made
without milk. Take the juice of
stewed prunes, dilute with water
and make a cornstarch pudding.
Into this stir the prunes and small
chunks of orange, It can be
served with powdered sugarmere-
ly, but of course is all the better
served with cream.
Does everyone realize what a
delicious pudding sauce can be
made of sour cream, whipped,
sweetened and flavored with vanilla? It is much sweeter than the
whipped sweet cream.
A teaspoonful of sugar in the
stove blacking will add to the
lustre of the stove.
A lump of camphor placed in
the china closet will prevent any
silver, which may be in it from
tarnishing.
You will not be bothered by anything taking the seeds before they
sprout if you will soak your seeds
overnight in water to which has
been added a generous supply of
ground cayenne pepper.

LARGEST BELL WAS JiKVKK KUJiG
Tlle largest bell in (lie world, the
"Tsnr-Kolokol," has never been rung.
It cracked in the casting, and now
stands on a pedestal In the Kremlin at
Moscow, a place ever famous for Its
bells, and Its weight Is 11)8 tons. This
place still has tho largest bell In use,
however, one weighing 128 tons; also
two others, 80 and 57 tons respectively.
British bells are small compared with
those giants, but It will be news to
many people to find that our biggest
bell Is not "Big Ben," which weighs
13% tons, there being one In St. Paul's
that is 1714 tons.. "Great Peter," ln
York Minster, boasts a meagre 10%
tons. Peals of "swung" bells are
never more than 12 in number, and the
number of changes capable of being
rung are according to the number of
the peal. On three bells, six changes
can be rung; on six hells, 720, while
on a full peal nf 12, as at St. Paul's,
479,901,600 changes can he rung.
"Chiming" hells—-those that are struck
Instead of swinging—are termed carillon peals, and may number 40 or
more to a set, mechanical means he-

Running through the telephone cord are a number of delicate flexible wires. "Kinks" are
formed when this cord is allowed to become
twisted, and some of these wires may be bent or
broken,
This means a "noisy" telephone line. You cannot hear or be
heard as well. In fact, a twisted cord may cause a complete
interuption of your service. Keeping the telephone cord
straight will give you greater satisfaction in the use of your
telephone.
