PRESENTATION
The Boy's Scouts Association,
the " Boy Scouts " and many
friends of Corporal J. C. Brown
met in the basement of the Pres-
, byterian Church on Friday 19th
to do honor to Scoutmaster Brown
who was the guest of the evening.
Mr. W. Willard, president of
the Boy's Scouts Association presided and after receiving Scoutmaster Brown while all the Scouts
stood at the salute, he made some
very fitting remarks of the good
work done by Mr. Brown while
among us. On the platform were
the chaplains of the Boy Scouts,
the Rev. Bischlager, Hood, and
Wilson, Corporal Rushford, "the
guest" Corporal J. C. Brown,
while beside him sat his brother,
Gunner Matthew Brown and their
uncle, Mr. Coates;
Songs were rendered by Mr.
T. Banks, Mr. A. J. Taylor and
Mr. E. T. Searle.
On behalf of the Boy Scouts
Association Mr. Willard presented Corp. Brown, theirscoutmaster
with the Thanks Badge in solid
gold as a token of the work done
by him while organizing and
building up the movement.
Mr. Taylor, acting Scoutmaster
was next called and he 'presented Corporal J. C. Brown with a
wrist watch and also, expressed
the deep obligation the Boy Scout
movement had to Mr. Brown
who had obeyed the call of his
King and Country. Mayor Parnham on behalf of the Presbyter-
,, ian Church presented Corp. J.
C. Brown with a beautiful leather case containing a set of brushes, comb, tooth brush, and other
useful articles. Mayor Parnham
assured Corporal Brown of the
high esteem he was held in by
the people of the church and on
making the presentation assured
Mr. Brown that this was only a
slight appreciation for the many
services rendered.
After each presentation Mr.
Brown made a suitable reply but
so unexpected was the threefold
.presentation that after Mayor
Parnham had made the third it
was very evident to the audience
that Corporal Brown was deeply
touched and as expressed by himself his feelings were more felt
than he was able to give words
to. After the presentations the
Rev. Hood,  Wilson, and Bisch-

lager gave very appropriate addresses. Corporal Rushford, a
veteran we are all proud of, who
has done his bit made some
touching reference to the work
done and the work in front of
Scoutmaster Brown.
The stern reality of the work
in the trenches was poinded
out as well as the strength of: he
enemey and for the necessity
for us to put up our best, before
Prussian militarism will be crushed. Speci 1 reference was made
to Mrs. Brown, the mother of
Scoutmaster Brown who had
given so many sons to her King
and Country.
A very   enjoyable   social was
afterwards held at which the Boy
Scouts   did   the "honors"   andi
waited on the ladies and gentle-j
men.   The singing of God Save
the 'Kring brought a most enjoy-*
able occasion to a close.
"Satan of the Sands," is the
title of the second episode of the

being even better than Lucille

Francis Ford have spared no effort to make it the success it has
proven to be.
AWARDED $200 DAMAGES
Vancouver, B.C., Nov. 26.—A
verdict unanimously in favor of
the plaintiff and fixing the damages st $200 was returned after
a little over an hour's deliberation by the jury in the libel suit
brought by Mr. Alexander Lucas
M.P.P., against the Ministerial
Union of the Lower Mainland and
Moses B. Cotsworth, formerly
chairman of the provincial grading commission. The suit arose
out of the attack made upon Mr.
Lucas in the pamphlet known as
"The Crisis .in B.C.," in connection with the position he held at
one time as provincial travelling
assessor. No damages were
asked by the plaintiff, Mr. E. P.
Davis, K.C, who acted for Mr.
Lucas, having stated in his address to the jury'at the opening of
the trial, that all his client desired
was to relieve the stigma from
his name which had been placed
upon it by the publication of the
libel. That the jury, however,
could bring in a verdict awarding
the plaintiff damages, if they
see fit, was pointed out by Mr.
Justice Morrison duringhis charge
to the jury at the conclusion of
the evidence yesterday.

G. N.R. INAUGURATED.
Vancouver, B.C.—Wednesday,
was a red letter day in the histoi y
of the development of Vancouver by reason of the arrival and
departure of the first trains on
the Canadian Northern Railway,
which inaugurated the tri-weekly
schedule between this city and
Quebec. At Quebec connection
is made with the Intercolonial
Railway. What this third line
will mean to the development of
Vancouver is indicated, by the
fact that already much freight
and express matter have been
consigned to points along the line
within the Province.
The first train arrived from the
East Wednesday evening at 7:30
| o'clock in charge of Conductor
|C. D. Berry. There were five
| cars on the train, drawn by Cana-
I dian Northern engine No. 1119,
with engineer G. J. Myles at the
throttle. A baggage and express
car was loaded full, and the t' ain
brought about sixty passengers
to the city. In the sleeping car
were twenty-seven people, most
of whom came through fiom
Winnipeg. Besides the baggage
car and sleeper there were three
other cars first class day coach,
second class coach and parlor
observation car.

A Recipe for Never Annoying
our Friends.
This was made by one who had
suffered much, for many years,
from numberless little worries,
occasioned by a relative, whose
affection no doubt was sincere
and devoted, but also too ardent
and wanting in discretion. There
must be moderation in all things,
«ven in the love we manifest, the
care we take to shield them from
trouble. This recipe consists of
but four simple rules, very clear
and very precise: behold them.
1. Always leave my friend
something more to desire of me.
If he asks me to go and see him
three times, I go but twice. He
will look forward to my going a
third time, and when I go, receive
me the more cordially. It is so
sweet to feel we are needed, and
so hard to be thought importunate.
2. Be useful to my friend, as
far as he permits, and no further.
An over-anxious affection becomes tiresome, and a multiplicity
of beautiful sentimtnts makes
them almost insupportable.
Devotion to a friend does not
consist in doing everything for
him, but simply that which is
agreeable, and of service to him.
and let it only be revealed to him
by accident, We all love freedom,
and cling tenaciously to our little
fancies; we do not like others to
arrange what we have purposely
left in disorder; we even resent
their over-anxiety and care for us.
3. Be much occupied with my
own affairs, and little, very little,
with those of my friend.     This
infallibly  leads  to   a   favorable
result. To begin with. In occupying myself with my own affairs,!
I shall the more speedily accom-i
■plish   them,   while  my friend is'
doing the same.    If  he appeals

to me for help, I will go through
fire and water to serve him; but
if not, then I will do both myself
and him the greater sevice by
abstaining. If, however, I can
serve him without his knowledge
of it, and I can see his need, then
I must be always ready to do it.
4. Leave my friend always at
liberty to think and act for himself in matters of little importance. Why compel him to think
and act with me? Am I the type
of all that is beautiful and right?
Is it not absurd to think that because another acts and thinks
differently to myself, he must
needs be wrong? No doubt I may
not always say,"You are right,"
but I can at any rate let him think
it. Try this recipe of mine, and
I can answer for it your friendship will be lasting.
A Fortune in Itself
Civility is a fortune in itself,
for a courteous man often succeeds
in life, and that even when persons of ability fail. The history
of our own country is full of examples of success obtained by
civility. The experience of every
man furnishes, if we but recall
the past, frequent instances
where conciliatory manners have
made the fortunes of physicians,
merchants, and, indeed, individuals of all pursuits. In being introduced to a stranger, his affability or the reverse creates in-
staneously a prepossession in his
favour, or wakens unconsciously
a prejudice against him.
To men, civility is, in fact,
what a pleasing appearance is to
a woman; it is a general passport
to favour—a letter of recommen
dation written in a language that
every person undestands. The
best of men have often injured
themselves, by irritability, and
consequent rudeness; whereas
men of inferior abilities have
frequently succeeded by their
agreeable and pleasing manners.
Of two men, equal in all other
respects, the courteous one has
twice the advantages, and by far
the better chance of making his
way in life.
It is sublime to feel and say of
another: "I need never meet, nor
speak, nor write to him; we need
not reinforce ourselves, nor send
tokens of remembrance; I rely on
him as on myself; if he did thus
or thus, I know it was right."
When men are pure, laws are
useless. When men are corrupt,
laws are broken. THE ISLANDER, CUMBERLAND, B.C.

The Adventures of Johnny Mouse
MISS EDITH CAVELL
It is not simply the character
of an individual which stands
out so luridly in this dreadful
episode. The report of the American Secretary of Legation leaves
no doubt that General Von Hissing's staff were of precisely the
same timber as himself. The
execution of Miss Cavell mirrors
the spirit of the whole of German
administration in Belgium, snd
not in Belgium alone, in its
callousness and its brutality. The
brutality is not spontaneous, e-
motional, explosive. It is cool,
calculated and systematic, These
things are done partly because
they expresp one side of the German temperament, and partly
because they are profitable. Sympathy, the finer courtesy, the
nobler tolerance lie outside the
German scheme of government.
They are evidences of weakness,
and what Germany must stand
for, before all else, is might.
There is no need to ask the neutral r.ationsto look upon this episode and be horrified. They will
pass their judgment. But what
one would like to see is that the
Germans themselves should study
it. They often ask why it is that,
despite their undeniable virtues
and talents, they are so little
loved in the world. Let them examine the story of the death of
Miss Cavell if they would have a
key to a not very obscure mystery.
If they do not find it therein,
then their soul is indeed lost.
For a people can be saved neither
by its own guns nor by the guns
of its enemies, but only by searching out and discovering the diseases of its own spirit. A hundred
years of progress and expansion
and fourteen months of victorious
war have led up to what (all technicalities aside) is an atrocity perpetrated by a Government without excuse, even the coward's
excuse of fear. Are there any in
Germany who ask whither they
are being led?
PASSED EXAMINATIONS
During the last few months
lectures on the St. John's Ambulance Course have been delivered by Dr. Geo. K. MacNaughton,
which were well attended by the
young ladies of the city.
At the examination held recently by Dr. Hicks, nine young ladies
presented themselves to take the
test and the following were
successful:—
A. Reese, 91.5, N.Stewart, 91,
M. Evans, 85.5, B. Stewart, 68.5
S. Walker, £8.5, M. Walker, 55
L. Carey, 53. E. Rod well, 51.
BOY SCOUTS ASSOCIATION
The Boy Scouts Association
have appointed Messers Coates
and Sutherland to endeavour to
secure members for the Boy
Scouts Association. Membership
fees are one dollar per year and
the Association will greatly appreciate the gentlemen willing
to help out in this good work by
sending their subscription to
either of the above named. So
far this is the only means
the Association has availed itself
of for funds and they feel this
appeal will not be in vain.
At a recruiting meeting in Toronto Major - General Sir Sam
Hughes announced that he purposed to take an active part at
the front, and that when the big
drive for German territory started
he intended so far as his present
plans went, to lead the Canadian
forces on their march ♦p Berlin,
which would start sooner than
was at present dreamed of. He
added that although the call for
256,000 men was only a week old
Canada was now well on toward
the 200,000 mark.

Now as Ever Age Limits Cannot Deter—Wellington and  Gordon  Began
Young—Thrilling Records
Youth is always at the front, writes
Tighe Hopkins, in the "Daily Chronicle," London. "And what should you
like the Queen to do for you?" the
PrincesK asked the bugler boy; sitting
by his bed in Netley Hospital. "I
should like Her Majesty to send me
back to the front, miss," said the boy.
This was Bugler Dunn, of the 1st
Royal Dublin Fusiliers, aged 14. How
many drummers and buglers have won
the Victoria Cross for Valor, 1 cannot
say; but the number is a fair one.
The youngest of this shining band waa
Drummer Magner, of the 33rd Foot
in Abyssinia. At the summit of a
rocky path a great wall was reared,
eight feet high. "Set me a-top of 'er,"
said Drummer Magner, and a giant
set 'im a-top of 'er, and one by one
the boy hauled up the regiment. They
do not all, of course, get the Victoria
Cross. Tommy Keep, ten year' old
at Alma, remembered when tea time
came, and set out through shot and
shell to make tea for the wounded.
Queen Victoria sent for him to her
palace so fine, and kissed him.
Thrive on Fighting
You cannot keep the boys out of it.
They smell the battle afar off, tell unbelievable crackers to the sergeant
about their age and well does the sergeant know it. These things, and all
the feats of blossoming youth in the
firing line, fling a kind of fragrance
over war. In the attack on Delhi
Bugler Sutton, King's Royal Rifles,
seeing an enemy bugler about to
sound his instrument, nipp d from the
ranks and smote him dead befora he
could give a note. The nigh, before
the final assault on Delhi it was necessary to know whether our guns had
knocked the walls enough. Sutton
slipped out in the dark by his lone,
and brought back the needed word.
At 15 he was a V.C. Is it forgotten
that Wellington himself was an ensign
before his 18th year? In the Crimea
two youngsters enjoyet'. themselves
hugely in the trenches before the Russian fortress, of whom we afterwards
heard a good deal. One was Gordon
and the other Wolseley.
"Bad" Boys Rank High
The head master, Dr. Lionel Ford,
of Harrow, says that of the 2,313 living Harrovians of enlistment age,
2,000 are serving; a percentage of 90
or more. No fewer than 19,648 boys
who have received their training in reformatory and industrial schools have
served during the present war. Thrse
have won tlie Victoria Cross; twenty
five have been awarded the Distinguished Conduct Medal; twenty hava
been mentioned in despatches and
three have been decorated by th')
French Government. From this war
the industrial school and the'reforma-
j tory should rank with the public
schools of England. Their golden
deeds are coming home to us. "One
of our sireld.er-btnrers, a lad of IS,
was working like a nigger while bleeding from half a dozen wounds." What
hearth raised the drummer boy who,
taking a stroll, impudent like, fell
prisoner of war; and, a drum being
fetched for him, was asked to give a
taste of his quality? Rattled off a
march or so. "And now," said the
German major, in good English, "beat
a Retreat." "A w'at, yer 'Ighness?"
"A RetreU." "Lawd love yer Majesty— w'at's thet?"
But do not let us brag as if ours
were the sole boys in the war.    The
French boy is in it, too; and history
has plenty to say about his valor from
days  very  much  more  ancient  than
Napoleon's.    The war was still very
young when a French Boy Scout was
j shot for refusing to show the way to
I the  Germans.    Another  French   Boy

FOR PATRIOTIC FUND
Winnipeg, Man., Nov. 24.—The
Union of Manitoba Municipalities
represented by more than 200
reeves and councillors, in annual
convention at Stonewall today
resolved to petition' the Manitoba
Government to levy a tax of one
mill for five years on all assessable property in the Province for
the Manitoba Patriotic Fund in
aid of soldiers' dependents.
Nearly 50 per cent urged that
the tax be two mills, to cover all
patriotic demands. The one mill
rate will provide by tax $600,000
a year, and if the demand on the
Patriotic Fund continues to increase as last year, another $400,-
000 will be raised by voluntary
subscriptions.

the eye. The eye is missing, bu* the
Croix de Guerre hangs above his bed
in hospital—at least it did until lie
got well, and had the cross pinned on
his breast before some hundreds of
other Boy Scouts, who will soon be
delinquents in the same line of bus
ness.
Yes, the boya art. only too finely and
terribly all there! The recruiting sergeant knows it. These many months
he has been winking the other eye,
and he will have to keep on doing
so; for the boy will go to battle in
the teeth of all the fibs he can invent
about his age. It is he who fires the
lines. Our infinite blessings on the
Boy!
