The Cumberland Cricket Club old
time dance held In the Anglican Hall
on Friday evening last, whilst being
a very Jolly affair was not as well attended as expected, owing to many
counter attractions in the district;
The Cricket Ohib have been very unfortunate in choosing suitable dates
for their dances and whist drives. The
last one held had been advertised at
least three weeks bfore the day on
which it was to he held, and it is to
be regretted that some of the other
attractions could not have been arranged to suit. However, the boys are
still smiling and intend to carry on.
Another social will be held In the near
future when ample time will be allowed to advertise the aframr and also
Allow other clubs to arrange their
dates satisfactorily.
The drawing for the box of candy
took place at the dance, Tom Carney
being the successful winner. Friends
of the drub bad been very generous In
donating the candy. It was decided
to make up a second prize, this being
won by Miss Pearl Hunden. Dancing
continued after the drawing until
midnight, the Byng Boys' Orchestra
supplying first class music.
Mrs.. T. H. Mumford, Mrs. E. R.
Hicks, Mrs. G. K. McNaughton, Mrs.
J. Shortt, Mrs. W. H. Cops, Mrs. ,1.
H. Cameron, Mrs. A. Nunns, Mrs. Ea.l-
Ie, Mrs. G. W. Clinton, Mrs. E. Pickard, Mrs. T. Graham, Mrs. J. Diclt,
Mrs. J. Conway, Mrs. L. Stevens, Miss
Sehl and Miss Burrows, all members
of the Ladles' Bridge Club, met at the
home of Miss Molly Tarbell on Friday
afternoon last, when four tables were
In play, Mrs. E .Pickard being the winner of the afternoon's play.
A. W. Neill's
Local Member Active in Interests of District
H. E. Murray Has
Narrow Escape
Chandler Jitney Strikes Coupe
Driven by Murray
H. E. Murray of the teaching staff
of the Cumberland Public School had
a very narrow escape from serious injury on Saturday afternoon last at the
junction of the Cumberland road and
Island' Highway. Mr. Murray was on
•his way to the Badminton Courts at
the Imperial PtarlHon and on approaching the crossing and almost opposite Roy's residence put his car into
second gear, keeping a sharp look-out
for traffic from either Union Bay or
Courtenay. Not being able to see anyone he proceeded to cross the highway with the intention of going
straight on towards the wharf. When
about the centre of the raaidway he
was horrified to see a large touring
car, said to be travelling at a high
rate of speed, practically on top of
him. Realizing 'that a collision wa.-
alraost inevitable, Mr. Murray swerved the wheels of his car over to travel
in the same direction as the other car,
towards Courtenay. The latter struck
the Chevrolet Coupe almost In the
centre , forcing it over the roadway
and through the fence, causing considerable damage.
The Chandler car was driven by
Rowley Nunns, of Campbell River,
who is a jitney driver in the employ
of Ritchie, of the same place, received
no damage. Nunns also got out of the
mix-up with out Injury.
The only Injury sustained by Mr.
Murray was a small scratch on the
left hand.
Mr. A. W. Neill, member for Com-
ox-Alberni, can always be depended
upon to look after the Interests ot
Cumberland and the district In general, whilst at Ottawa. Owing to the
great publicity given to the use of
pulverized coal on an Atlantic steamer, residents of coal-mining centres
have been greatly Interested. Mr. A.
W. Nelll, with a view to the welfare of
Cumberland and district, Introduced
the 'following resolution on Wednesday of this iweek:
"Whereas the market for the output
of British Columbia coal mines Is seriously reduced by the competition of
fuel oil, imported at an enormous
i And whereas scientific research In
j Britain and elsewhere has dernon-
I strated that coal, when used In a hlgh-
: ly pulverized form, can successfully
! compete in price and results, with
fuel oil;
! And whereas it is very desirable
; that the output of our mines should
! be increased and more labour em-
| ployed;
Therefore be it resolved: That In
I the opinion of this House, In order to
i test and demonstrate the possibilities
j of pulverized coal, the Government
! should adapt one of their steamers on
j the Pacific Coast, and the furnace of
one of the Government public buttd-
Ingslngs In British Columbia, to the
use of pulverized coal from Vancouver Island mines,"
This resolution, if carried into effect
would follow closely on the decision
of Jhe Provincial Government to test
pulverized coal in a government building In Victoria and one In the interior
of .he Province,
Mr. Nelll states that friends have
told him that tests made In. England
have shown pulverized coal to be thlr- -
ty per cent, cheaper than fuel oil.
League Maintains
|  Big Interest
Checker Tournament Also Very

Give B.C. Coal
A Chance To
Come Back
Veteran   Mining   Man   Wants
Province to Encourage
Prospectors .
VICTORIA, Feb. 7.—The day when
British Columbia, will manufacture all
Its oil and gasoline trom its vast coal
resources, was envisaged in the Legislature yesterday by N. A. Wallinger,
Conservative of Cranbrook, and a
veteran mining engineer. In a quiet,
constructive speech containing much
more worthwhile matter than the addresses of members iwho take up more
time in the House than he, Mr. Wallinger urged the Government to keep
abreast of the new movement to bring
back coal as the great fuel of the
world. To this end he advocated the
establishment of a research department which would seek methods of
using coal as well as other minerals.
"We should follow up the use of
pulverize!1 coal as a fuel tin this province, and the use of coal also for the
production of oil and gasoline," he
said. "All the oil and gasoline use!
In British Columbia should come from
our own coal. This Is bound to come
In time, as the present experiments
are perfected for commercial use."
Aftr many years in the hills as u
prospector and mining engineer himself, Mr. Wallinger uttered an Impressive plea for the men who aire finding
the mineral treasure troves of the
province. He deplored the fact that
he knew no prospector under 60 years
of age. Apparently young men. were
not becoming prospectors and he urged the government to remedy this
condition by assisting mineral hunters
Mr. W. P. Symonds, of the City Meat
Market, Dunsmuir Ave., Cumberland,
desires to thank his numerous friends
for their valued patronage during his
absence and for the good-will and
courtesy shown to Mr. Manderville
and staff who had charge- of the store
during the past few months.
Mr. Symonds has now returned to
Cumberland and taken charge of the
business once again, where he will be
pleased to meet all his old friends and
patrons, and takes this opportunity of
"onveylng to one and all that service
and quality will be the motto of the
City Meat Market, as in the past, and
respectfully asks the continuance of
the patronage of the people ot Cumberland.

Doctors Callous
Unsympathetic And
Hard Says Member
Burnaby's Labor Member Assails Medical Board Working
Under Compensation Act.
Victoria, Feb. 7.—Dismissal of the
present medical board under the
Workmen's Compensation Act and the
appointment of a board of doctors better qualified for their iwork was urged
in the Leglslaure Monday by F. A.
Browne, Lobor Member for Burnaby.
While asseiing that the Workmen's
Compensation Board itself Is administering the law as well as It could be
administered, being what it is, the
Labor member declared that the medical board which examined Injured
workmen was "callous unsympathetic
and hard." It should be replaced, he
said, by more competent professional
men who would start their work with
a fresh viewpoint and not hardened
by routine. He quoted Dr. R. E. Mc-
Kenchte leading Vancouver Medical j
man, as declaring that members ol
the board were not the ablest men ob-
tainable as their salaries were not
sufficient to attract the best men.
Mr.   Browne asked  the  House   to
increase compensation to the full ex
tent of the injured man's wages.   He
quoted several concrete cases, which
he named, where he believed grave In-,
justice had been done to workers In j
the fixing of compensation.
Delegates Show
Great Interest In
New Cathedral
Holy Trinity  W.A.  Hold Well
Attended Meeting
Some twenty members of Holy Trinity W.A. met at the home of Mrs.
Treen on Monday evening last when
very Interstdng reports were received
from the delegates to the recent au-
nual meeting of the Diocesan Board of
the W.A., held at Victoria. Delegates
trom this end of the Island took a
prominent part In the proceedings of
the annual meeting, Mrs. Pack, of
Royston, replying to the address of
welcome to the delegates In a very
able manner, whilst the Rev. E. O.
Robathan preached a sermon on the
three attributes of W.A. work, "faith"
humility, love," at the opening service In Christ Church Cathedral.
One Interesting point in the report
of the Diocesan officers was the treasurer's figures on W.A. work. All
obligations had been met and a good
deal of work accomplished through
contributions from various branches.
The local delegates were also very
much Interested in the new Cathedral
the architect taking the visitors round
he building and explaining the points
of interest.
Unanimous approval was given to
the suggestion of the Bishop during

PROBABLY the strongest reason why all the
World loves Lindbergh is that he hasn't got
a swelled head. It may not be as important
but it is just as delightful as his flight to Paris.
Many of our college youths, who are havng a hard
time to pass their exams and high hat their old
friends when they get back to the old home town I
would do well to emulate this ability of Lindbergh
who has been acclaimed by royalty, to avoid a
swelled head.
The man who attaches sufficient importance to i
the acquisition of money or fame or position, to
permit it to change his attitude toward his pals
atid acquaintances or his estimate of himself, is'
a fool. The swelled head is invariably a symptom
of inferiority. The world always knows when a
man, who has risen to a higher level in any field
of endeavor, developes the swelled head. It is a
sort or instinct of the mass.
Anyhow, what reason has any human being to
get stuck on himself and snub the other lads who
splashed with him in the old swimmin' hole? The
richest man on earth today will never have the
power on thi searth that Croesus had. And who
knows where Croesus is buried? Who is hero
today to compare in might with Alexander or
Napoleon? Yet those three gentlemen are very
small potatoes today. What writers compare with

THAT great American national bird, the hen,
which has labored so hard through tho centuries to make this country a success, is now

Under the direction of scientists, French hen

wine contains valuable vitamins which increase

If the American hen has to depend on what can

This is the first swUch locomotive built in Western
Canada. From tender to pilot It is a product of the
motive power shops of the Canadian National Railways at Transcona. With its tender, the locomotive
weighs 356,000 pounds, and it was turned over to W.
A. Kingsland, general manager of the western region,
by A. H. Eager, general superintendent of motive
power, who has charge of its construction. Three
others of the same class are now being built at Transcona and will follow It into service early this year.
Mr. Kingsland ia standing nearest to the leader on
the pilot of the locomotive and behind him is Mr.
Eager. *
Her honor was dearer to her
than life. Yet she was called
upon to give it up to save her
people. A gigantic epic of the
horrors of Russian Imperialism. War running rampant
over an innocent race. Thousands in the cast. Thrilling
and powerful to the last degree. The play that is the
sensation of all Europe,
brought at last to the screen!

Story Of Local
Mines Appeared In
Onward Magazine
Miss Harris Fraser Impressed
by Visit to Cumberland
On Vancouver Island the twitter o;
a dimlnuative sparrow from green
trees or 'hedges is not an unusual
occurrence. But It was a surprise
when having been driven through the
dust-speckled streets of Cumberland
to the coal mines, iwe were introduced
to a small bird called Dick, who occupies a cage In one of the store
bouses belonging to the company,
when he Is off shift.
Blithe, yellow, and anxious to please
it Is Dick's business to protect his
miner friends. They carry him with
them through the cave In the mountainside into the damp cellar of tho
earth, and If 'there is poisonous ga:.
present he Is the first to discover it.
Should Dick's wings droop ever so
slightly his companions know tha
they must leave the place at once, so
much more so Is ia bird affected by
gases than a man.
But Dick Is not the only interesting
character at the mines. By no means!
We are told that Zane Grey the novelist, had recently spent some time in
Cumberland   gathering  material   for
ills next book. Perhaps, he too, was
introduced to the ancient Chinese gentleman, who for twenty years, haj
picked out slate from the lumps of
coal that pass him in carloads. No
one at the mines can outdo him in
We stopped a moment to take a
s snap of some of the miners and discovered that, while their occupation
may seem a trifle dismal, there is no
element of darkness or gloom about
their smiles. One particularly pleasant fellow was just preparing to go
down the tunnel when one of our party asked:
'But the danger? Isn't this where
those terrible explosions happened?"
"I guess there is a risk, all right,"
replied the miner, as he adjusted his
peaked cap with his tiny electric lamp
to his head.
"There was a pretty had one here
not long ago, and several of my
friends were in it. It was an awful
shock to Cumberland. I wasn't down
at the time, but my pal was. I watched the women and kids waiting at the
train for the men to return. One of
the saddest things that happened was
when a chap in the search party stumbled over the unconscious body of
his brother.
"Two Italian fellows who lived near
us were knocked down by the force
of tlie air at the time of the explosion,
but they were brought out ot the tunnel safe and sound. Next morning
there wias a big auction sale of their
goods and furniture, and they left
for the States.
"It made us all think, I can tell you,
but you know there Is a risk to everything. The Doc. said that night to us,
'I'll never kick about my coal bill
again, not after seeing all this. Flesh
and blood is often the price we 'have
to puy for coal."
And with a wave of his hand, the
miner jumped on board the cars and
disappeared from our sight, for with
him courage is a work-a-day affair.

1 That will be the record of Lieut.-Colonel the Right
Honorable L. C. M. S. Amery, M.P., Secretary of
State for the Dominions, when he returns to England
after his Dominions-wide tour on February 11. During this period Colonel Amery has visited South
Africa, Australia, New Zealand and Canada, and has
delivered upwards of 3S0 speeches all told.
His speeches have covered a wide range and have
been enthusiastically received by monster audiences
throughout. He has been particularly happy in his
references to the romance of the British Empire and,
In his remarks concerning the economic position of
the component parts of the British Empire, while in
speeches touching on the Empire Marketing Board
he has broken new ground with most satisfactory
In every speech delivered by Colonel Amery in
Canada he stressed the findings of the Imperial Conference in 1926, which made known explicitly to the
world, he stated, that every one of the Dominions was
an equal Imperial partner in the British Empire.
Colonel Amery landed In Canada from the S.S.
"Aorangi" at Victoria on January 6, and will sail
from Saint John, N.B., on February 3, on the Canadian Pacific liner, the "Montclare," for Liverpool.
For the journey across Canada, where stops were
made at 18 important centres, the Canadian Pacific
Railway Company placed a special train at the disposal of the distinguished* visitor and staff. On
arrival at Banff, Alberta, the capital city of the
Canadian Pacific Rocklw, Colonel Amery threw all
cares of state aside nnd spent nil the day of January
12 enjoying winter sports. The Colonel is an expert
ski-ier and took great pleasure in overcoming the
difficulties of Tunnel Mountain. Throughout ,he
tour Mrs. Amery, herself a Canadian girl, accompanied her gifted husband. Others to make the trip
were Capt. W. Brass, M.P. for the Clitheroe Division
of Lancashire and Parliamentary Under-Secretary
for Health; G. G. Whiskard, Assistant Secretary at
the Dominions office, and G. Huxley, of tha Empire

, No Child Need Die of Diptheria
i In Canada, during the year 1926,
! there occurred 922 deaths from Dip-
I theria. This represents a trmendous
' amount of suffering, both bodily and
' mental, the loss of precious lives, and
', the physical damage to so many that
recovered; In addition, the resultant
expense might be mentioned.
many cases and deaths continue to
occurr?   The answer to this question
is that whilst we have a cure and a
preventive,  they are not- being used
by everyone, and until they are, cases
and deaths  will continue to occurr.
Diptheria antitoxin Is a specific cure
if given, in sufficient amount, on the
first   day   of   the   disease.     Deaths
occurr when this is not done.   Cure
depends upon securing prompt treatment.   The usual reason for delay Is
that parents wait until tomorrow to
see if the child is better before calling a docor.

Mary Philbin stair of "Surrender!"
the Universal Jewell which will play
at the Ilo-Ilo Theatre, Febbruary 10
and 11, receives an exceptionally
heavy fan mall. I
"I always get fan 'mail," she said,
"but I have noticed, that when one|
ot my pictures has just been released,
the mail Increases tremendously, even
doubled until that picture has run its
course, By that time, usually a new
picture is out and that keeps the fan
mail arriving." ,
Pan mall is a large personal expense to a star.   Each picture must
be paid for and autographed. Then it
must be mailed In a heavy envelope
Most stars employ special secretaries
to care for their fan mall.   Miss Phll-
bln's mail consists of from 1,000 to
3,000 letters a week, coming from every country In the world.   Miss Philbin couldn't resist starting a postage
stamp collection and she has one of
the largest collections in Holywood.
Ivan Mojuklne, who plays opposite
Miss Philbin, Is believed to have received the largest amount ot fan mall
of all European stars before he came
to America.   Now his mall is rapidly
Increasing due to the release of Michael  Strogoff"  a European  film  and
"Surrender!" Ms first American production.
In  the   supporting  cast of  "Surrender!" are Otto Matiesen, Nigel de

The opening year was tlhus the gayest of the gay.' Our growing National
importance reveals itself in our strut.
Two years ago Governments were
shaky and the tones were grey. Last
year, color burst forth—this year it
was a riot. Pageantry never loses its
appeal to a Democracy. All such
grand occasions must e military.
"When the war drums throb no longer and the battle flags are fulled,"
Parliament will stay closed! How
could they ever be opened without the
clink of arms, the flash of sabie, the
rattle of spurs, battles, magnificently
stern array?
From the House ot Commons they
march to the Senate Chamber to hear
the King's speech. This gives the cue
to the season's task, but the King's
speech sayeth little. The scene entrances. There Is Mr. King in re-1
splendent uniform looking like a million dollars. Mr. Bennett In sombre
black, who really owns several millions, looks just about $500.00 less—
lmaculate thaugh he is, one can figure
that his tout ensemble Is not wortn
so much. And don't forget Mr. Guthrie. His Is a statuesque figure. Politics, like the stock exchange, Is hard
on hirsute adornment and Messrs.
King and Bennett are spare in the
thatch, hut Guthrie, though thinning
as he climbs the ladder ot advancing
years still occupies a strong place as
one ot the best looking gentlemen in
the House of Commons.
That's all. The social scenes of
the Opening are a' thing ot the past
for another year. It was five-thirty
by the olock in the big tower of the
Parliament Buildings on the morning
after. The cold bit close. The stillness of death hung over the oity. A
scrub women wended her way to work
for the House must be kept spotlesj
and clean. What did she think of It
all? Before the City awoke to another
day, she had finished her task and
turned homeward again—"Home
Sweet Home."

Many of you will have heard of Dean Bennett, of Cheater
Cathedral; he is perhaps the greatest living exponent of
how to work out In a practical way the results of modern
pystvatoglcal knowledge a.id educational experience. He
originated "Children's Comers" in Churches, by his work
In Chester Cathedral, and his Idea is now found carried
out In all parts of the world. He has written a little book
called "Mary Jane and Harry John" or "Home of the
Premier School" which is lull of good sense and just what
some of us need. For Instance he tells us "Few things are
difficult when you know how to do ithem, and to bring up
children religiously is not difficult when you know how.
This book tells you how. Certain things you do need to
know—that's the science of It; and some things you need
to do—that's the art of it."
Under "Suggeslon" he tells us that a suggestion makes
and longer abiding Impression than does information. "So
fathers and1 mothers who never take their children with
them to Church do inflict on them irreparable religious
loss. Nothing in after life can ever make up for this critical act of neglect. It Is no use trying to blink this ele-'
mentary fact. Quite young children are not bored by
grown-up services, even if they last for more tiban an hour
and include a sermon. They have endless resources for
occupying themselves. What bores children is the obviously bored grown-ups. To sum all this up in a sentence; If you want to start your own little people on the
way that leads to religion, you mist do some religious looking things yourself and let .the children "see" first, "ask"
second, and "hear" third. There Is nothing difficult about

To Think?
That when you spend money  BUYING
merchandise from out of town merchants
you are helping to cripple the prosperity
of Cumberland.    A town's Prosperity is
only as great as the amount of money in
circulation. When you send your money •
to mail order houses, that money is
lost forever as far as Cumberland
is concerned
MANY there are who make of a legitimate and well-established business nothing but a convenience—a place from which to get odds
and ends when there is no time to go farther afield. They do not
hesitate to send their good money away for things they need, and which
could just as satisfactorily and much more promptly be supplied by their
home merchants and dealers.
Your argument is that you save. Maybe you do save 5 or 10 cents here
and there. But the reason is simple. The mail order house has a stupendous turn-over and it is all for cash.

During the winter sports' season

from there. It is a tiny village

winter sports and festivities. Quebec with its old world atmosphere,
its buildings of antiquity and its
leisurely ways will lure on«, after _
