result that not a single moment was
wasted waiting for incoming batsmen.

or and Mr. M. B. Jackson. K.C., of Victoria, acting for the defense. Evidence
was taken for the prosecution, the de
fence reserving its evidence. At the
close of the hearing the magistrate adjourned the proceedings until Wednesday morning, so that bail might be arranged, and on Wednesday Stephens
was committed for trial at the assizes
on ball set at $10,000.00.
Dr. G. K. MacNaughton, of Cuuber-
land was the first witness called and
told of being aroused just before twelve
o'clock on the night of Sunday. July
14th. On going to the hospital he saw
the body of William Hutton ln a Ford
coupe. It was still warm, but life was
extinct. On the following day he made
a post mortem examination. He found
abrasion wounds on the back of both
legs just below the knee joints and
skin abrasions on back of botli hands.
left side of forehead, eye-lids, cheek
and bridge of nose. The middle third
of left upper arm was fractured and
left collar bone dislocated. On the
back of the head was a gaping transverse scalp wound three inches in
length and the whole back of the skull
was fractured. In his opinion death
must have been instantaneous and was
caused by the fracture of the skull and
jonsequent damage to the brain tissue.
Mr. Robert Strachan, mine surveyor,
submitted a plan oi the Cumoerland-
Courtenay road on which were indicated the cemeteries and the Small
road. The plan also indicated where
reddish stains were seen on the road, i
the location of the body of deceased |
and also where a cuff link belonging
to deceased was found. Mr. Strachan
said that the roadway was straight,
with a width of 22 feet and a tarred
surface of 17 feet. The gradient was
Z\{\% down. The reddish stains were
approximately 360 feet from where the
cuff link was found.
Photographs of both the highway
and the car were submitted by Nor-
bert Schwarze, photographer, of Courtenay.
Edward Handlen gave evidence as to
the condition of the car. He had test'
ed the brakes the morning after the
accident and found them in good order. The bumper on the right hand
side was bent four and one-half inches
aud the right hand head light bent
back. The radiator at the right top
corner was bent back seven inches
from the centre, the radiator was
twisted and the supporting rods bent,
The fan casting was broken, a small
dent in the cowl and the right hand
front fender bent slightly, The car,
he said, was capable of making sixty
miles an hour and the lighting system was equal to any other make of
car. Hc hnd driven the car back in
the night with only one head light and
could see 50 to 60 feet ahead.
William Martin Brown, hospital orderly, gave evidence as to the arrival
of the accused and Morgan at the hospital with the body of deceased.
Spencer Morgan said that about
10.30 on the night in question he was
walking on the road between Cumberland and Courtenay and when at the
bottom of the hill at the Japanese Cemetery was picked up by the accused.
On the main stretch, after passing the
Grant road, he saw a man walking on
the right hand side of the road in
thc direction of Courtenay. He was
walking on the edge of the tarvia
pavement and was within ten feet ol
thc car when he first saw him. He
called to Stephens to look out, but it
was too late; the car struck the man
on the right hand side of -.he car.
Stephens ran a few yards be:ore applying the brakes and when the car
stopped they both ran back but could
not find any trace of the man so he
asked Stephens to back up the car up.
As they were backing up he siw William Button's hat lying on the edge of
the tarvia.  They then went to the side
track off the tarvia.
John Thomson, of Courtenay, gave
evidence as to finding the cuff link
about 300 yards north of the Grant
road, which was corrobated by John
Helen Geddes Morrison identified
the cuff link as one she had given deceased on July 12th and which he had
put in his hip pocket. The last she
saw of deceased was at their home
about half past eleven on the Sunday
Further evidence was given by Constables N. O. De Witt and O. L. Hall
as to the condition of the road and
also by Corporal Mansell.
The Island Publicity Bureau has re-
l ceived news from Mr. S. J. Isaac, secretary of the Campbell River Tyco
Club, that a remarkable good run of
tyees has now begun. Asu rule, ihe
heavy run begins near the end of
August.and it is seldom that such big
fish are killed so early in the year,
the general run being between thirty
and flfly pounds iu weight.
Campbell Itiver is remarkable as
being one of the very few places on
Vancouver Island where these fish j 1 P-m- antl from 2-30 to 0.80 p.m
may be taken on a rod and light tackle. There is no need to use a heavy
weight and go down eight or nine
fathoms, as the sea is particularly
shallow at Hie mouth of the river, and
the fish keep near the surface. Thus
the big fellows can be felt at their
best, and their lighting qualities can
be appreciated.

afternoon, having regard to the fishing in the Comox district, are as foi- ,

ABOUT eight or nine years ago an effort was
made to organize a cricket club locally.
At tlu.' iiiiii.ii meeting held then three men'
turned up, one the sponsor and the other two in-
terestedin the grand old game. Incidentally the
same three are actively connected with the present club which was formed two years ago.
For the second year in succession a team ol*
Victoria cricket rs has toured the north end of
the Island, thi cond tour terminating last Monday, alter a mosl successful period. Cricket is
the national game oi England. It has been so for
more than a i n tiry and a half and the game refuses to how down to any other sport; it enters
into the fibre ofthe Hritish national character.
Specially noticeable is the fact that cricket has,'min
in its history, produced metaphors which have become the inspiring symbols of courage, adventure
fair play and the decrees of fortune in the great
game of life. This was observable during the
Greal War. An English officer wrote: "Whatever happens you will know I batted well." And
again with that frank spirit characteristic of men
willing to give the sportng chance, another officer reported that the "German bowling was accurate."
Wo can say with the Montreal Gazette, "Long
may the supple willow continue to thwack the
new red ball to the boundary."
It has been hard work, this fostering of tho
game of cricket  in Cumberland and it is to be
hoped that when another season rolls round more
of the young men of the town will bo seen taking
' an active part.
Only experience can teach thai these juvenile bopes and
aspirations are in tlie majority ol oases doomed to bitter
disappointment i" the realization of what the great out-
Bide world bolds in store. The majority of iliis juvenile

There arc certain diseases Which,
although tiicy are comparatively rare
; and are responsible for but few
' dcailis, attract attention becauso of
jtiie sufferings which they cause and
I our inability to cure them. For example, we think of rubies with horror, not because it is u common disease or because it causes many deaths
but for the reason that when it does
occur, we find ourselves helpless.
The reason why we refer to this
particular disease is not In order tn
cause a thrill of horror, hut to remind our readers that rabies can be
prevented. The time between the occurrence of tlie bite aud the develop-
men of symptoms, tlie Incubation
period—varies a good deal; the average in man is about forty days. If
the disease fs to be prevented, it Is
necessary that the treatment, which
by the new Semple method takes
fourteen days, be completed, and that
fifteen days ho allowed for the full
development of the protection Which

Nearly 8,000 freight and passenger cars are moved every day. 51 transfer
and yard engines are in service 24 hours of the day and frequently additional locomotives are required. Between 32UQ and ,'luOO men are
employed constantly.
There are two large passenger yards, Glen Yard at Westmount,
and Place Viger, of which the former is the larger and more important
since it takes care of all incoming and outgoing trains to and from the
Windsor street station. An average of 90 trains enter and leave the
Windsor station and an average of 40 Place Viger Station daily which
means that 65 outgoing trains at least, have to lie switched daily, their
card made ready, inspected, watered, iced and cleaned in preparation for
their journey.
Freight traffic is more difficult to handle than passenger. Of the
15 switching and deli . y yard-, Sort in, Outremont and Hochelaga are
the largest. Incoming trains are taken in tlie receiving yaru; outgoing
In the classification yard and cars held for orders or repairs in the hold
and repair yard.
An important feature of freight traffic is the prompt placing of all
loaded cars onto the various private sidings, public team tracks and
freight shed tracks throughout the city so that the various consignees
can take delivery of their shipments as noon as possible after arrival in
the receiving yards. Prompt placing of empty cars for loading is another
important feature, as Is also prompt movement of cars loaded in the city
for shipment elsewhere. During the navigation season an average of
400 cars loaded with pierage freight for export fs always1 ,vnHmg to be
unloaded. Further, during the grain movement b< asop Were is always
an average of 1,000 cars of grain on hand.
Heavy traffic means constant attention to i,..iiire maximum of
safety. The main !!no 'racks are laid with I no Id. rail and rock-ballasted.
Nearly 200,000 new ties and 2,800 gross tons of rails were laid in the
main line and yard tracks during 1927 without causing a minute's delay
to traffic. There aro four engine houses on the Terminals, each with
•tails for from 24 to lid engines and on the average 186 trains are dispatched every 24 hours for passenger and freight trains. There are on
the terminals 226 buildings, 125 bridges and culverts and many hundred**
of drains along the right-of-way.

Danced Bare-
Legged And Made
Old Men Nervous
Dorothy  Mackaill—A  Vignette
She was born in Hull, Yorkshire.
England, on a stormy March 4th. The
year? In Miss MackatU'B own language, "Why bring that up?"
She is thc daughter of Mr. and Mrs.
John Mackaill, her father being descended from a long line of Scotch-
Bnglish squires. He continues to
manage the Maypole Dairy Company
at Hull, a position he has held for
years. Her mother lives with her in
Hollywood. Her brother, is in Australia.
At the age ol six, DoroSthy Mackaill
decided to become ;in actress,   When
she reached ten her ambition  was to
he a bare-legged dancer in the front
row and make old men nervous.
When she was thirteen, she was
senjt to school in London, After nine
months at the Thorna Academ
Wlgmore Street, she ran away and
her first ambition was realized. She
joined tbe chorus at tlie London Hippodrome and was prominent in a
number called "The Chicken Walk."
She danced bare-legged in (the front
row and made old men nervous.
Between times she played In English pictures. She lias forgotten the
name and the company. At that time
she dlUnlt care for film acting.
The specially number. "The Chicken Walk," became so famous that the
girls who performed it. at the Hippodrome were taken to Paris. There
Miss Mackaill played in a French
film—and didn't like tbalt any hetter.
Then her second ambition was born
It was to go to America and dance
in the follies. She wanted to see tho
tall buildings sho had read ahoult—
and to work for Flo Ziegteld. So she
started for thc New York skyline at
the westward side of the Atlantic.
Alt a revival of "Floradora" In New
York she crashed the stage door about
exchanged persiflage with a man who
proved to be Lee Shubort. He gave
her a job in the show. When thc
show closed she went to see Mr. Ziegteld. Sho was determined to gdi in
the Follies .
In the producer's outer office she
proclaimed that she was "Dorothy
Mackaill of London to sec Mr. Zleg-
feld." The London part oE her announcement gott her an audienoe.
"He liked my voice and my legs
and put me ia the Midnight Frolic
in the roof," Dorothy reports.
Then he gave her a racy song to
slug becuuse it sounded funnier in
her English accent. She was wearing
the elolthes of Jacqueline Logan then
—Jaeky having just left tlie show.
Edwin Carewe, iho director, saw
Dorothy MacKaill iu the show and
offered her a role iu "Mighty Lak' a
Rose." She decided she liked American movies. Her lirst role got her
parity witli Richard Harihelmess in
"The Fighting Blade" and "Twenty-
Then she signed a contract to go to
Hollywood. But her next pictures
were terrible and with cusltomary Impulsiveness she tore up tlie contract,
muchto the relief o fthe producer who
had signed ber. She played in a
number of other Kastern picliure.'
with  indifferent  success.
Something had to be done, so she
bobbed her lung yellow hair for a
role in "Chlckle," her initial First
National picture. Then came a series of productions leading ilo "Subway Sadie", her lirst picture wilh
Jack Mulhall. Since then they have
been teamed iu many successful
screen offerings, She would rather
play with Jock than with Million Sills
but admits that "The Barker," and)
"His Captive Woman," made wilh j
Sills, were among her best.

The following instructions for nrtl
flcial respiration, which should Ije applied in cases of drowning, are taken
■ from the manual of First Aid Instruc-
tions for Miners, issued by the United
States Bureau of Mines. Clip the instructions and keep them in your camp
In using the Shaefer or prone method, place the person on his abdomen: remove from his mouth all foreign bodies, such as false teeth, tobacco and gum. The tongue usually
falls forward of its own weight, but see
that It Is forward. Turn his head to
one side and rest lt on his forearm,
so that the mouth and nose will not
jcome In contact with the ground and
I extend the arm forward.
If the person Is thin, prepare a pad
of folded clothing or blankets and
place It under thc lower part of the
chest. Do not wait to loosen the victim's clothing but begin artificial respiration at once. An assistant may remove all tight clothing from thc victim's neck, chest and waist. Blankets,
hot-water bottles, safety lamps or hot
bricks well wrapped in paper or cloth
should be placed about the person by
an assistant.
Kneel, straddling the person's thighs
and facing the head; the palms of
your hands are placed over the short
ribs with your thumbs parallel with
the spine about two inches apart and
your fingers spread out as much as
possible, the ends of the little fingers
reaching Just below the last rib. With
arms held straight, swing forward
slowly so that the weight of your body
is gradually brought to bear on the
person. This operation, which should
take about two seconds, must ont be
violent, lest the Internal organs be injured. Then remove the pressure, but
leave your hands in place, thus returning to the original position. After two
seconds swing forward again and repeat deliberately about fifteen times a
minute, the double movement of compressing and releasing, causing a complete respiration in about four seconds.
If a watch or clock is not available follow the natural rate of your own deep
breathing, swing forward with each
respiration and backward with each
Do not wait for the arrival of a put-
motor before beginning artificial respiration.   According to the Bureau of
Mines,  when  breathing  is  suspended
manual  methods  should   be  used   at
once, because there is a chance of reviving the patient if they arc used immediately, but "if owing to delay, the
cells of the brain have been derived of
their supply of oxygen for more than I
the critical period  (rarely more than!
ten minutes), it is utterly impossible!
for any later treatment to restore them
to their normal condition."
