CUMBERLAND SCHOLARS
TO TRY TENNIS  AND
GRASS HOCKEY GAMES
Mrs. T. Banks, Mr. J. C. Brown and
Mr. A. McKinnon, the three trustees
who rarely miss a meeting, were the
only members of the board present at
Tuesday's monthly meeting of Cumberland School Trustees. When the
chairman called for order It looked
as though the proceedings were going
to be over In record short time as
there was very little business on hand
but Principal Apps, who arrived a
few minutes late, saved the situation
by presenting his report for the month
of November as well as a number of
recommendations and proposals from
the teaching staff.
Before discussing this report,
Secretary McKinnon read a communication from the local P.T. Association
thanking the Board for its generous
(200.00 donation towards the school
library. Bills and accounts to the
amount of $264.78 were presented to
the finance committee and all were
passed with the exception of one to
the amount of (100.00 from Mr. W.
A. Owen, architect. This account was
rather an old one but was perfectly
In order. Trustee McKinnon fully explaining it. It vim, he said, an account for services rendered In 1920
when It was decided to add another
store..* to the new school and for
which Mr. Owen had drawn up the
necessary plans. The trustees, however, felt Justified in wlth-holdlng pay
ment of this account until a meeting
of all Board members could bc held.
Mrs. Banks tendered her report of
the recent Trustees Convention held
In Victoria but this was not read as
those present had already heard it at
a former P. T. meeting. Trustee 1.
C. Brown, however, commented on
th excellence of the report "In fact"
he said, "It Is more than a report,
It Is an address."
The November school report next
came under consideration and was
ordered received and fyled. But attached thereto were several statements from the staff and these kept
the trustees busy until nearly nine
o'clock.
Out of the (200.00 library grant,
the report stated, (150.00 worth of
books had already been purchased
on approval from the publishers,
RUBsel Lang, Toronto. These had
been received nt the school but the
library committee had seen fit to retain only a number to the value of
(130.00 and was preparing to return
the others. (60.00 of the grant will
be used to select books for the high
school and the remaining amount
wlll go toward purchasing books for
the general use of all pupils. The
shipment, Mr. Apps' report went on,
Included some of the best books obtainable for a school library.
The senior girls and teachers requested permission to use the school
SPECIAL MEETING
OF BASKETBALLERS
SUNDAY EVENING
An Important meeting of all connected with the Cumberland Basketball Association Is called for eight
o'clock Sunday evening In the Lecture Hall of the Cumberland Literary
and Athletic Association. Everyone
is requested to attend as weighty
matters concerning the league are tn
be discussed.
17 More Shopping
Days to Christmas
some afternoon in the future for the
purpose of holding a tea with the
object of raising enough money to
equip a grass hockey team. This
permission was given.
The next item in the report was
a proposal that if the Board would
purchase thc necessary ashes and
furnish the labor for conditioning the
tennis courts the teachers would
supply the necessary nets and wire
netting, although these latter would
not be needed until the Spring. Now
however, was an opportune moment
to put on the ashes. The trustees
fell heartily in accord with this proposal and gave Mr. McLellan permission to use a sum of not more
than (100.00 tor this purpose. Mr.
McLellan thought this amount sufficient to secure enough ashes for
three courts as well as for paying
the necessary labor. Tenders for
hauling fifty yards of ashes will be
received by the secretary not later
than  Monday, December 7th.
The report concluded with the
statement that there would be no
school concert this Christmas although one may be held later on In
the new year.
Before adjournment it waB decided to procure a car of coal for
the school furnaces.
AUNT SUSAN DUE TO
ARRIVE HERE IN
ELEVEN MORE DAYS
Only eleven more days ere Aunt
Susan makes her official visit to our
city. Her portrayal of what a good
Aunt ought to be and what her
neices and nephews think she ought
to be will be a revelation to the good
folk of our city who are anxious to
enter the portals of Society.
Even in families the contrast is
very conspicuous at times, and especially Is this so In the case af the
two neices of Aunt Susan; the mild
tempered manners of Mary Alice are
worth.* of Imitation while the Aery
disposition of Rebekah Jane ls so
true to the character of the actor that
it will be enough to see this modern
Priscilla to make you desire not to
be like her.
Wee Sammy Smith has got on bis
first pair of long pants tor the occasion of the visit of Aunt Susan and he
seems so tickled with himself tbat
he infects everybody with his happiness; It sure will" do you food to
meet him on the 16th of December.
Mrs. Highborn Is truly typical of the
class she so nobly represents and her
Ideal Ib markedly depicted in her expression which conveys all that her
station In He means to her.
The two leading characters on the
occasion of Aunt Susan's visit are
her nephew and his wife, and we feel
that the time ls so near for depleting
the many phases of their careers,
that we will leave the final touches
to next Friday's Islander where you
will be told just what you desire to
give you a complete insight to the
great treat ln store or you on the
night of December 16th.
You really can't afford to miss
ibis scene, with all the characters,
as it Is a long time since you have
had an opportunity of doing what
Robert Burns suggested we should
do, "to see ourselves as others see
us." It would frae many a blunder
tree us and foolish notion, so be there
on the 16th to meet Aunt Susan.

apparently not over four years old in long pants
just like their fathers used to wear and we see
large fat men of fifty being young again in knickers. But one is not surprised to see anything
these days. We saw a lady fishing recently.
She wore blue overalls and suspenders. We
could forgive the overalls but not the suspenders.
We think she should have taken a sporting
chance and left off the suspenders.
FRIDAY,   DECEMBER   4th,   1925
GIVE THE HOME Communities    grow
MERCHANT A CHANCE in proportion to the
support they receive
from the people who make up the community.
Cumberland has no chance to improve in quality
and size by the inhabitants investing their money or buying the necessities of life in other localities. People who cling to the misguided
policy of "doing better" away from home often
lose dollars in trying to save pennies.
The home merchant is honest and offers you
honest values. He can't afford to be otherwise,
though he might be inclined to. He depends
for his living from the community which he serves and he muat give the community what it
wants at a fair price.
When you are tempted to trade outside and
buy something "just as good" at lower prices
you should think twice before acting. The merchant himself may have been cheated and he is
generally willing to take the loss rather than
have a dissatisfied customer. But the out of
town merchant is not personally interested in
you. His only hope is to sell you once and he
does not have to take the precautions to preserve
your good will.
More than owing it to your community to
trade at home, thus keeping your money in circulation at home you should give the home merchant the first opportunity to serve you, from a
sound economic viewpoint.
STYLES According to the latest ap-
HAVE CHANGED   proved   styles,   little  boys
wear long pants and  big
boys wear short pants.     We note youngsters
AS GRAINS The death of an individual, how-
OF SAND ever prominent, matters very little except to a few immediate relatives and friends. The few who suffer loss
are as nothing to the millions who, not knowing
the deceased, feel no poignant grief at his departure. If everything else that has been written is false, this at least is true and true nuiver-
sally. No matter who dies, "the silent brood of
care plod on."
Viewed from inside our own hearts, some of
us feel puffed up with importance; viewed from
without we are only units in a vast crowd, each
unit living its life and then perishing, unmourned
and uncared for by most of the units around.
The only thing of interest to the survivors is the
record of things done.
The trees we plant live after us and shelter
generations that follow; the crops we grow feed
other mouths than ours; our deeds, good or bad.
do live on; the good is not "interred with our
bones." Things done and not merely dreamed
about are the things that make us have interest
in our fellow creatures. And these works must
be done without expectation of full recognition.
An offering of precious service to the world is
and must be largely impersonal, for though our
deeds may be widespread, our own individuality
is known to but few. The great achievements
of history live long after the man or women who
accomplished those things has passed on. We
know the great leaders as names only, impersonal
they will always remain, because we never saw
them.

PREMIER OLIVER
VICTORIA, Dec. 3.—The absentee
vote In British Columbia came only
nfter very careful consideration by
the whole Legislature, claims Premier Oliver, and it will be retained,
(lespite attempts to have It abolished.
Opposition members are Inclined to
agree with the Government leader
that thc present Elections Act is
ahout as fool-proof as can be. However, minor amendments, which will
further strengthen the statute, will
he  passed  this  session.
GENEROUS POLICY OF
IMMIGRATION NEEDED
FOR CANADA AND B.C.
VICTORIA, Dec. 3.—A broad generous policy of Immigration Is needed
for Canada and British Columbia,
declares Hon. T. D. Pattullo, minister
of lands. Participating in the annual
budget debate, the minister claimed
that the Provincial Government was
doing evrylhlng posslhle to encourage
land settlement and he predicted that
the expenditures made on reclamation
projects would return handsome
profits.
OLIVER GOVERNMENT IS
SOUND AS EVER WITH NO
PARTICULAR DANGER IN
SIGHT OF ADMINISTRATION
VICTORIA, Dec. 3.—The annual
crop of predictions that the Oliver
Government was through have proven false, as usual. The House has
now been In session live weeks and
there ls no issue looming that promises any particular danger to the administration. Hon. J. I). McLean,
minister of finance, Is credited with
having presented the most promising
budget in years. Material tax reductions have been provided for and
it will not be necessary for the government to borrow much money in
order to carry on during 1926.
The mineral output of Dritlsh Columbia this year will reach a total
value of ?60,000,000, approximately
one-fourth more than last year, according to an estimate prepared by
tlle provincial mineralogist. The
value of the mineral production last
year was $48,704,604, while for thc
first eight months of this year it has
totalled $41,000,000. Gold production
shows a large increase and a greater
output in coal and zinc is noted, while
smelter activity is evidenced by a
big increase ln the output ot coke.

PRESENT LEGISLATION
HAS CONSIDERATION OF
ENTIRE ELECTED BODY
I    VICTORIA,   Dec.   3.— Every   time
the Legislature meets there is a com-
| plaint from opposition members nnd
. a  certain  section  of the  press  that
the business of tlle House Is* held up
i because the government has not prepared its new legislation.   The truth
Is that It Is   impossible   under   the
] present      system      of      government
through    elected    representatives  to
I have all legislation prepared in  ad-
; vance.  The views of private members
j from all parts of tbe country must be
: secured first and that appears to require   on   the   average   about   four

States than the home production? It
Is an American writer that puts the
question. He seeks to imply that it
is not as might be supposed nn account of transportation expenses
but because oi its greater uniformity
and soundness. To Canadians this
is pleasant news and a sure eneouage
ment to maintain quality, especially
sustained quality. The writer of thc
article wns in a Pullman dining car
when be propounded the quest Ion and
the reply of the waller was that many
travellers prefer Canadian cheese
even at slightly higher price "not
because il Is always belter but because it usually Is." This seems to
imply tliut it is more dependable. It
is a fair instance of what ensues from
; persistent effort to produce something better than tlle other fellow and
; to meet tlie demand, not only of the
I general market, but also of the consumer . the satisfaction of the latter
I being after all   the  real  key to the
| situation.

Following Is an excerpt from the
"Montreal Star" of November 11th,
1925:
On board the liners in port there
was nn eerie note. The chutes conveying grain into the holds, the
winches hauling cargo Inboard were
silenced. Men made their way aft
and, on the poop deck, waited for the
arrival of the officers and the commencement of the special service
which marks Armistice Day.
On the Cunard liner Auranla the
whole ship's company assembled on
the after deck and when Capt. R. V.
Peel and his officers arrived they
came  smartly  to  attention.
The ship's bell sounded six bells
(eleven o'clock) and the flag on the
stern was lowered to half mast.
Everyone, bareheaded, stood for two
minutes while all around boat and
barge whistles sounded their raucous
cry. To many who had lost relatives
during the war the whistles sounded
Irreverent, but when they finished the
ship's company joined In singing
"Nearer my God to Thee."
The solitary violin of the ship's orchestra sent its sweet notes echoing
Into the air as it led the singing
through the five verses, to the accompaniment of the viola and the piano.
The "Last Post" sounded, the flag
was raised to full mast and the company Joined in singing the National
Anthem before they dismissed to assemble together inter in informal receptions nnd discuss Armistice Day
In 1918 In other climes.
Some had been in the Dardanelles,
some in France, others In Egypt, another group In tiie North Sea, but today they were on the same boat paying respects quietly to the glorious
dead, "whose name llveth for evermore."
In Courtenay on a recent rainy day
the chief of police stopped a sweet
young thing for driving without her
license plates. Her excuse waa that
she didn't want to get them dirty.
Here's  Mary Jane-—but not alive,
She made her Ford do forty-five.

fall in love with their chauffeurs? And young millionaires

back-stage theatrical episodes,
and rapid-fire complications.
From the play by David Groy and
