City. The letter says the cost of
maintenance has increased considerably, and while their accounts-are all
paid up to date they are facing the
winter with approximately a deficit
of $800 per month, and no funds in
sight. It went on to say that some
of the local Ladies' Societies had already rendered financial assistance,
but the above was intended as a direct appeal to the municipality. The
Mayor and aldermen thought It advisable to turn the letter over to the
Women's Benefit Assolcation or some
other Ladles' Organization, and Instructed the City Clerk to convey thc
Information, with the object of holding a tag day or some other means of
raising funds to enable the Aid Society to carry on their noble work of
taking care of the little children that
have been left homeless.
The Vancouver General Hospital informed the City Council that David
Lockhart waB a patient in that institution under the oare of Dr. Ainley.
The City ot Kamloops forwarded a
resolution for the consideration ot the
City Counoll with reference to the
maintenance 'and operation of an Isolation Hospital. They considered it
unfair that the fees for attendance
and medical treatment should be a
charge on the individual, and that the
Provincial Government be requested
to assume the whole cost of Isolation
Hospitals, including medical fees,
The matter was discussed by the al-
remen present and finally endorsed
the Kamloops resolution.
The Assistant District Engineer of
the Department of Public Works requested estimates of the proposed expenditure on primary and secondary
highways for the year 1924. He mentioned that he had already received
the amount expended for the year' ated,
1923. The City Clerk was Instructed
to supply Mr. O. W. Smith with thej
necessary Information.
The City ot Nanaimo wanted the
Council to adopt a resolution that the

If, however, no other form of heating can be adopted, we wlll be pleased
to bear a portion of the cost by furnishing the fire hall with 1000 K.W.
hours per month free. All current
used In excess ot this amount will be
charged for at the rate of 2 cents per
K.W. hour.
We shall give you credit for the unused portion in summer months.
We will be pleased to have your acceptance of this before connection is

Dear Sir:—
I am in receipt of your letter of
ihe 17th, Inst, offering to furnish the
City Fire Hall with electric power for
heating at the rate ot 1000 K.W. per
month tree, and all current used in
excess of that amount to be charged
fur at the rate ot 2 cents per K.W.
hour.
On behalf of the Fire Wardens of
the City, I beg to accept your generous offer, for which please accept our
thanks.
Your remarks as to the expensive
form of heating by electricity are "noted, and apprecitaed. Under the circumstances, however, under which
the additions to the Fire Hall had to
be made lt was found that any other
form of heating would be difficult to
arrange for and an electric heating
system appears to be the only really
suitable solution.
Again thanking you for your generous offer, which is greatly appreci-

Dr. Gordop served four years overseas, and was later connected with

some wonderful results along the line
of facial and palatal restitution were
accomplished for the returned soldier. He recently severed his connection with this famous Institution and
decided to locate on the British Columbia Coast.

and then thought they were not Interested and ordered the communication

Story ot Paramount   Picture   Holds
Attention to Finish
A melodramatic picture that holds
one's attention from start to finish is
William de Mine's Paramount production, "Grumpy" featuring Theodore
Roberts, May McAvoy aud Conrad Nagel, which will be on view at the Ilo-
llo Theatre Friday and Saturday
next.
This is said to be one of the most
suspenseful photoplays booked by
Manager Haworth this season.
Mr. de Mille has Injected a great
deal of mystery into "Grumpy." This
mystery Is wrapped around two tiny
flowers, both gardenias. The story-
is laid around a young mail, Conrad
Nagel has his role, with whom has
been trusted a diamond valued at
half a million dollars, A gentleman
crook (played by Casson Ferguson)
steals the diamond. But he so clever,
ly conceals his part In the robbery
that he ts not suspected.
Two flowers change places during
the robbery. One ot the flowers has
a strand of a woman's hair around teh
stem. The other has not. These two
tiny bits of evidence go back and forth
with dazzling speed. Just when you
think Roberts, or "Grumpy," will get
the flower with the strand of hair
and thus fasten the guilt of the robbery on Ferguson, something happens
to the evidence. Of course, everything
ends happily.

The following account ot last Sunday's football game at Northfleld ts
from Tuesday's Nanaimo Herald.
While Cumberland was admittedly
tbe best team at NorUifleld, still, the
score does not exactly represent the
play. Two of the visitors' goals were
soft ones, and should have been saved. However, on the other hand, Cumberland waa handicapped by playing
on a short field. With their fast tor-
ward line, a long field just suits them,
and the longer It is the better It su.ts
them. As Linn and Bell of the Nau-
almo City learned on their last visit
to Cumberland, it does not pay for
the backs to go out too far when playing against Cumberland, aa the farther out they go, the better chance the
Cumberland speedy forwards have to
beat them to a passed ball. This was
In evidence at the Northfleld game,
but not so much so as the run was
shorter. Bannerman scored the first
goal for Cumberland, heading the ball
Into the net from a corner kicked by
Deluce, the play taking place three
minutes after the whistle had started
them off. Russell for Northfleld,
sored next but he was too anxious, and in order to keep control,
handled the ball before kicking, the
goal not being allowed. James took
the second counter for Cumberland
shortly afterwards on an easy try.
Perry scored next, giving a nice shot
md beat Blair completely. Deluce,
with an extra burst of speed, even
.'or hi*, scored the third goal for Cumberland, the half ending three to one
In favor of the visitors. In the second half, James added one more tor
his team. During this period, also,
Russell nearly scored for Northfleld.
the ball striking the cross-bar, and rebounding. Again, Blair was forced
to come out to clear what looked like
a sure rush, with three Northfleld
| forwards behind it, but Just a shade
too late.

In question are giving the City Council no end of trouble. The Clerk read
a reply from the Superintendent of
Lands as follows:

Sir —
Re "Better Housing Act,"
I am In receipt of your letter of the
17th snlt., together with copy of tho
communication of your Solicitor to
the Mayor of ;,our City, In which he
recommended the issuance of new
agreements covering loans made under the provisions of this Act.
It would seem to me from the information contained lu this communication and also that of letter of September 25th last, addressed to me,
that the main difficulty that Is being
experienced is in securing payment
of the arrears of instalments of principal and Interest, as well as taxes,
Insurance, etc.; this being aggravated
as far as your city Is concerned, by
the fact that considerably more was
expended on tbe various houses erected than the sum of $1,000.00 specified in the agreements

parlshoners, who hold them both in
high esteem.

We Give the 'Best'
Electrical Installations
There Is no doubt about it. We are here to prove it.
On the 19th of May 1921 we received from the Provincial
Inspector of Electrical Energy a set ot Rules anil Regulations
governing the installation gt Electrical Wiring were immediately adopted and have been lived up to in every smallest detail.
We carry the largest and most, complete stouk of any
Company or firm of Its size in B. C. and so can take immediate
care of your job without subjecting you tn any annoying delay
waiting for special material, etc.
We gladly Invite inspection b ythe highest Electrical
Authorities of any installation we have made since the Provincial Regulations were Inaugurated and our most convincing
argument as to why 'we should do your wiring is the fact that
of the jobs we have had inspected ALL have been pronounced
perfect. And then we have the knowledge of Electricity acquired through many years of experience an dthis should
surely count for something with you when you are selecting an
Electrical Contractor.
A mnu may know how to drive a nail precisely, but he is
a dangerous man unless he knows thc effect of tho driving
upon the material into which the nail enters and so It is in.the
Electrical Contracting business, it is not only necessary to
understand the practical installation of wires, switches, fittings, etc., but it is doubly necessary to be able to make the
calculations that will ensure maximum safety, economy of
operation, and the proper functioning of the Electrical Energy
for which the wires, switches, etc., arc ineryly paths.

to note tliat the first steel link In the

mVI HUH SCHOOL
Victoria, Nov. 2,— There is an Interesting sidelight associated with the
formal opening of the new High
School al Mission which took place
last week. In his formal participation in the inaugural exercises Dr. J.
1). MacLean, Minister of Education.
Informed an interested and enthusiastic audience that he himself taught
school at Mission from 1806 to 1900.
He supplemented this bald statement
and n number Of anecdotal references
lo bis earlier career as an educationalist, by similarly informing ills audience that Mr. Oillies, Assistant Superintendent of Education, also taught
it .Mission, from 18SII to 1895. And it
is a singular coincidence that Mr.
John Oatlu'i'wood, lhe Member for the
district, was lhe first school teacher
at the same place,-—and that was forty years ago.
illustrative of the expansion of the
district, not only in a general sense
but from an educational point of view,
it is to be noted that therewere only
seven schools in the Mission locality
as compared witli forty-four at the
present time.

MUST WORK TOGETHER
No town can grow as it should un
less people work together In its upbuilding. The history of every city
that has had rapid and substantial
growth will sjiow that united and enthusiastic work of its people had the
greatest part in making it grow. Ill
towns where a few live men boost and
work the town's upbuilding and many
are indifferent and do nothing, the
work of city building is exceedingly
difficult and the results slow 111 coming. If all boost and help build up
the town It is un cusy mutter to moke
the town push forward.
THE FRIENDLY SMILE AND
CHEERFUL (UtEETlMji  WELL
WORTH CULTIVATION
In town boosting cheertulness and
cordiality have au important part. Too
often people permit business cares
and worries to cause them to forget
the stranger within the gates and the
friend who passes by. Many a man
has gained a reputation for grouchi-
ness who has not thought to be cordial. A smile carries one much farther than n frown. The visitor in a city
is favorably impressed if the people
he sees on the streets are cheerful and
smiling. He at once gains the impression that it must be a good town which
has a cheerful people.
The visitor naturally thinks that a
city which offers welcome In so conspicuous a way means   it.     If   the
people he meets smile and are cheerful he at once realizes that they are a
people worth while and the town one
worth   looking  over.      The    cordial
greeting with all accompanying smile
of welcome, helps more than anything
else to give people a good impression
of a place.    The smile attracts and
the frown repels.   Orouchlness gains

to a delegation of theatre owners and
managers who appeared before him
to suggest that the Amusement Tax
be reduced at least 50 per cent.
The people of the Province will understand that the Amusement Tax
represents 10 per cent, of the price of
admision to all entertainments other
than those of a charitable or patriotic
nature. The moving picture theatres
ln the cities have included the tax in
the admission price, but the theatres
are not absorbing the tax.

STANDARD OF B.C.
SCHOOL TEACHERS
ments, which called merely for junior
matriculation Certificates. Hereafter,
students who are preparing to enter
the teaching profession wlll be required to take up, ln addition to the
work prescribed for junior matriculation students in literature, composition, arithmetic, algebra, geometry,
one science aud one language, the
subjects of Canadian history and Canadian civics, British History and geography.
It is expected that this modification
ot the course will result in an improvement of the teaching service, Dr.
MacLean said. .Normal School graduates will, It is hoped, enter upon
their work with better prepartion than
they had under the old requirements.
University graduates were, in the
past, required to attend normal school
for one term only, Dr. MacLean explained. In future they must attend
for two terms ot fifteen weeks each.
During the first term, September to
December, they will receive training
at the normal and model schools.
During the second term, January to
May, the will attend the British Columbia University, and one or two of
the night schools in Vancouver will
be used aa model schools.
A tuition fee ot $40—$20 for each
term—is now being charged each normal school student.
The number of students in attendance at the normal schools in British
Columbia last year exceeded by 152
the number enrolled the previous
year, Dr. MacLean announced. In nil
687 students—155 men aud 534 woni-
were enrolled in the two normal
schools, 320 In Vancouver and 269 in
Victoria. Of the total number enrolled, 31 failed, 25 withdrew before the
end of the year, 72 were granted interim certificates and 563 were recommended for permanent certificates.
Last year was the first time In
which interim certificates were Isiised.
Previously permanent certificates
were granted to all students whose
work was not classed as poor by th
normal school teachers. Under the
new arrangement, students whose
work is wholly unsatisfactory are not
granted certificates of any class,
while students whose work Is not a.
bove "fair" are issued interim cerlifl
cates valid for two years. Before the
holders of Buch certificates are given
permanent standing they must show
by actual teaching during the time
their certificates are In force, that
they possess adaptability for classroom work, Dr. MacLean explained.

Vancouver,— There will be no increase In the total number of seats in
the British Columbia Legislature ami
Victoria will retain its four members,
according to Premier Oliver's redistribution plan which is now before
the Government caucus at Victoria,
preparatory to its Introduction In thc
Legislature, whicli will meet on Monday. The whole plan was given out
here to-day.
Four new constituencies are to lie
created, six of the old ones are being
combined Into three and one wll tlls-
appear altogether, according to this,
The one to disappear altogether is
Esquimau. The urban pari will ho
put in with the city of Victoria, while
the rural part will be attached lo
Cowichan.
Bosldcs the urban part of Esfltll-
malt, Victoria will take In Oak Bay,
which now belongs to Saanlch.
Premier Oliver's plan, which lie
himself evolved nfter a tremendous
! amount of detail work extending over
j the last year, was highly commended
j today. It was pointed out that the
' Premier has achieved a solution of
j the redistribution problem without
j increasing the cost to the country by
adding to the total number of memb-
! era 111 the House.
!    It was pointed out that under his
plan the' north has been accorded in-
I creased representation   as   promised.
' another  member  has  been  given   to
j Greater  Vancouver  for  the   Increase
j in population there, and adjustments
have been made In the Lower Interior
! in keeping with the changes in population.   Under, the plan scattered and
rural districts have been given great-
': er proportionate  representation   than
! the thickly settled urban centres.
Greater Victoria will lose one mem-
: her, but the city will still have four
representatives.   This is being effect-
] ed by tlle elimination of the Esq ti-
malt  seat altogether  and  extending
i the area of the tour Victoria seats to
take In the urban part of Esquimau

nearly 2,000 members.   Oak Bay Is at
present ln      Saanlch     constituency.
which will continue to take in the urban population in the Saanlch municipality  which  adjoins  Victoria  City.
With a voting strength of 18,000 in
Victoria proper, the new Victoria constituency will have a    lotal    voting
strength ot 22,500.
Cowichan seat on Vancouver Island
will be changed by absorbing the rur
al part of Esquimau not taken into of Peace, embracing the Peace River

"Wonderful Indeed is the power of the voice."—Cicero.
The power of the voice is the success of the telephone. It was in the endeavor to transmit sound that
the telephone was invented, and the great factor of its
development into an article of vefy common use is that
direct conversation may be carried on.
Because it enables one's personality to he sent is
the reason that the telephone promotes friendships
and intimacy, and brings about closer relations between those in business. The pleasure of hearing the
voice you know makes long distance the casual practice

Well sir, I was standing on the coiner by the G. W. V. A. building this
morning smoking my stogie and
thinking. Rrfbertson came by and
i during the course of his conversation
I remarked that the thing he hated
worst was to ask a favor of a bob-
haired girl. I personally offer a pink-
paper hair curler to the best guess as
to why he feels that way.
This low priced gasoline is hard im
automobile  tires.
"Would you mind seeing me aero.™
the street?'' aBked a Jumpy old gentleman, who came up about that time.
"Not at all, brother," I responded,
as 1 retained my point of contact wilh
a telephone pole. "With that there
gait o' yours, I fouldn't mind watching you walk a couple ot blocks."
A quitter does the world just about
as much good as the hole In a doughnut—probably less.
I meandered down Dunsmuir Ave.
and met Jenks, *"I don't doubt tho
saying about wild women any longer,"
Jack confesed. "One I know can
powder her nose, fix her hair and
drive her car at thirty five miles an
hour, all at the same time. But she
can't take me along again" he wailed.
Why does a man bring home Ills
sorrows, but celebrate his joys downtown?
"Many a man can remember,'' says
Cameron, "that instead of saying it
with flowers, he just tied the reigns
around the buggy whip and didn't even have the price ot gasoline to disturb him."
1 walked up lu front ot Campbell's
department store. Charlie McDonald
was washing the woman's neck.
While hundreds of pedestrians turned censorious eyes upon him, the
brute ot a man unhurriedly and with
remarkable thoroughness kept to his
task of removing all traces of dirt
from the beautiful and slender column of pink that rose above shapely
shoulders encased in a beautiful
gown. No signs of protest were forthcoming, and the man with deliberate
Intent again and again dipped a rag
in the pan of suds and continued liis
labors.
Finally satisfied with the results,
the man wrung out the rag, pushed
aside the pan of water and prepared
to drape the lovely shoulders of the
window model with a new and expensive wrap.

They called me Hazel when a child
I wonder why?
My father was a "Colonel," I can't
deny,
I always was afraid of squirrels,
Since childhood's early hour,
It anyone would crack a nut,
With tear I'd always cower,
That Is not my fault at all,
I trust that you can see,
The reason for this column, Folks,
Is just heredity.

WHO IS "THE WONDERFUL
HEROINE?" '
The amazing life story of "The
Wonderful Heroine" in the Family
Herald and Weekly Star of .Montreal,
is creating intense interest in every
part or Canada. "Tlle Wonderful
Heroine" is n young anil lovely woman of tragic, history whose picture in
colors is being given free to subscribers of the Family Herald nnd Weekly
Star. A subscription of two dollars
is little enough to pay for a whole
year's subscription to this greatest of
all [arm journals, and with a magnificent picture thrown in. the value is
superlative.
In the old days, when men chewed
tobacco, a girl didn't kiss a man un-.
less she really loved blm passionately.
