CUMBERLAND WON
EXHIBITION GAME. 1-0
Cumberland United hit their winning streak again on Saturday last
when Naniiimo City fell easy victims
to a weakened local eleven by a score
of 1-0. The game, which was an exhibition one, waB staged before about
1200 spectators and demonstrated
quite clearly that both tbe Cumber-
laud and Nnnainin clubs huve some
very promising juniors, who can be
rolled upon to take their places and
make a good showing In senior company. Particular stress might be
laid on the work of the two junior
goal keepers, Walker for Cumberland
and Tait tor Nanaimo. both of these
youngsters gave a most promising
display. Tait wns beaten on two occasions, and whilst Walker had not
so much to do as Tait, his clearances
were neater.
The first half of the game produced
some nice football, Clancy and McDonald, of Cumberland, being much
In evidence. At half time, the score
stood even 0-0. The second half was
all Cumberland's. Fowler scored
from a beautiful cross by Bannerman.
Olanc..' repeated shortly after, but
Itel'erre Burnip suddenly decided he
was offside. Towards the close of
the game, Bannerman, who win making rings around Edmunds, forced
the sturdy back to handle the ball,
about 2 yards Inside the penalty areu.
Thc whistle promptly blew, the play-
era commenced to line up tor a penalty kick, but again Burnip was at
fault. He placed the ball right in
the penalty line, awarding a free kick
only. Time was called a few1 minutes after this Incident, with Cumberland pressing strongly.
Aquatic Sports To Be Held At
Royston Beach, Wednesday
Something new in thc way of sports I
for this olty will be attempted at Roy- ■
ston  Wharf  on   Wednesday  evening
next at six o'clock, when Mr. A. Mort- J
Imcr. of the Cumberland United Foot- j
ball team and Mr. J. Cameron of the '
Cumberland  Motor Works will stage j
an Aquatic Sports meet for the young i
people  of Cumberland.      Several  of;
the  local  merchants  have  been  approached by these two gentlemen and
ln every case have promised to assist by donating prizes, so that for
each event a valuable prize wlll be |
presented to the winner. i
The list nf events will be SO yards i
swim for both ladles and gentlemen;
100 yards yards swim for ladles and I
gentlemen; fancy diving, ladles and!
gentlemen; high diving; under water
swim and best exhibition of floating, j
All of these events will be held from
the Wharf at Royston, and It ls Intended to keep cars off the wharf so
that the large number of spectators,
who wlll undoubtedly be present,
may view the different races without fear of being knocked oft the
wharf by some "speed artist" There
will also be a special novice race for
boys and girls. For the safety of the
youngsters, this event will be staged
from the beach.
Messrs Mortimer and Cameron are
to be congratulated on the stand they
have taken in endeavoring to foster
something that has never been attempted before In Cumberland. Thoy
have given cheerfully of their time
and it Is to be hoped that enough of
our residents will be on hand on Wednesday next to give these two gentlemen a little help and try to put this
thing over big.
CLIFFE GETS DECISION
OVER PETER JACKSON
A fitting termination to the excellent sports put on hy the Courtenay
Assembly Nn. 3 Native Sons of Canada, on Dominion Day, was the big
boxing program. The main event of
the program was tlle tilt between Roy
Cliffe, llghl-beuvy weight champion
of British Columbia and Young Peter
Jackson, colored fighter of Tacoma,
who has the reputation of never having been  knocked out.     There was
COURTENAY COUNCIL
VOICES CRITICISM AT GOV.
LACK  OF  ACTION
COURTENAY, June 30.—There was
little business of importance to be
dealt with at last night's council
meeting. Mayor Duncan occupied
the chair and only three other aldermen were present. These were Aldermen Heber Cooke, J. W. McKenlze
and Theed Pearse.
Considerable criticism was voiced
owing to the lack of action on the pari
of the Provlnclal Government with
regard to Its share of the proposed
hard surfacing of certain streets wilh
in the city. The city clerk Is to endeavor to arrange a meeting with P.
P. Harrison, M.L.A., for this week,
when all the members of the council
wlll probably be present.
The tourist auto park, which at pres
ent is looking at its very best and
which has this year been much Improved, came In for some attention.
It was decided that a charge of 50c
per car per night be made to those
using the park. A number ot auto-
ists have been camping In these
grounds during tho past two weeks,
and for the most part have expressed
admiration tor the accommodation
provided and for the natural beauty
of the place.
A by-law known as the "Simm's St.
appropriation by-law. which will glvo
authority for the opening of the lane
which runs parallel with Union St.,
received its final rending. Some
building will have to be moved In tho
carrying out of Ibis work. At 10.20
p.m. after one of the shortest meetings for many weeks, the council adjourned.
close to one thousand spectators present when the preliminaries started
about 8:30.
The first preliminary between S.
Hams forged ahead and got decision,
fighting at 116 lbs., was a most even
affair until the third round when Williams forged ahead, gaing the decision
R. Henderson, 112 lbs. and L. Woodley
116 lbs. fought a "hum-dlnger" 4-
round bout. Both boys showed class
and the referee's decision of-a draw
was a very popular verdict. Adam
Monks and Young Roberts, of Nanaimo, fought two fast and furious
rounds, the referee stopping the bout
at the end of the second to save Roberts any further punishment. L.
Paulett, of Nanaimo and Paul Courtenay, also of Nanaimo tangled In the
next preliminary. Courtenay was
easily outclassed and at the end of the
second tound his seconds threw the
towell In the ring.
The semi-final between Duke Potter
of Seattle and E. Woodley of Victoria,
fighting at 165 lbs., waB, while it lasted, a regular swat feast. Woodley
by his aggressiveness piled up a substantial lead In the first and second
rounds. It was a different story In
the third. Just aa everyone expected
Woodley to finish his man, a short
hard right jab to the point of Wood-
ley's chin spelt finis to Mr. Woodley
tor the evening. Referee Tommy
Moore counted the dreaded 10 seconds
but Woodley was not having some, he
refused to rise and was assisted to hla
corner by his opponent.
The main event was the next on tho
program and excitment ran high.
Cliffe, as was only natural, ruled the
favorite, being In his own home town.
Mr. Walters, of Nanaimo, acted as
Referee for the main event with
Messrs Ramsay and Blunt judges. The
light which was an eight round 3-
mlnute affair went the limit, with
Roy Cliffe, gaining the decision.
Frankly, we must admit, a draw
! would have been nearer the mark,
however, the decision was a poular
one, judging by the prolonged cheering, which followed the referee's decision, after comparing the notes of
the two judges. We gave Cliffe the

Mr. Bonavla points out that the Increasing importance of ail phases of
women's work has heen a feature of
the fall fairs tor the last six years.
Sections In the prize lists devoted io
domestic science, sewing etc, were
formerly quite Inconspicuous, whereas now such sections form an Important part In every exhibition and rural
fair, and account for a substantial
portion of the prize money paid nut.
The records of the Department show.
with respect to Judges, thut the de
mand for lady judges has been on a
steadily Increasing scale, as will b>
shown from the following: Judges

score-cards, already referred to, have
been In existence for a number of
years, having been originally drawn
up by the Advisory Board of Women's
Institutes in consultation with the
Household Science Branch af Cornell
University. These score-cards have
stood the test ot time and ure the
standards used by the judges at our
fall fair.

VICTORIA.-Oliver G. Clark, an as
sistant forest ranger, met his death
on June 25th In the course of his
duty. A fire had broken out tho
day before near u logging camp and
after strenuous exertions had been
confined within narrow limits when
the wind chnnged suddenly and car
ried the flames down towards a small
settlement. Clark was ordered to
organize the women nnd children and
send them down to the forestry boat
anchored near by. There was
time to spare as the fire swept down
on the hamlet ns the people were got
out. Clnrk went back to search the
bouses in case any children might
have been left behind in the rush
without mentioning that he was doing
so and the forestry boat pulled out ot
range before he was missed. As soon
as possible his companions went back
ln a small boat and found the body
near the landing. Clark was a ve'
eran of the war and was looked upon
as a very efficient official.

Interviewed by a staff represetative
of The Times, H. Wesley Roberts, tho
visiting examiner In music, sent by
the Associated Board of the Royal
Academy and Royal College of Music,
London, had many nice things to say
of the extreme kindness ot the people
he has met "Out West," and of the
beauties of the Capital City and
Vancouver Island generally. He is
much impressed at the prevailing
music standards and the many visible signs ot a healthy and sound
musical development.
"The Western enthusiasm is splen
did," he says, "aud 1 find the stand-
ard attained by the candidates at the
local examinations favorably comparable with the standards of other similarly situated centres.."
"And no doubt a great deal of this
owes Its existence to the annual visitations of an Examining Board such
as I have the honor to represent."
This was especially emphasized by
Mr. Roberts.
"The stlmulous thus provided must
Inevitably raise the general musical
standard,   and   the   cause   of   music
must  increasingly  be  served.     This
Is the experience gathered by all examiners of the Board without exception.  "We  seek,"  he  continued,  "to
I make the examinations of real music-
! al value and to set a sound foundation tn order that musical edifice may

j    Mr. Roberts was particularly keen
i on the  Importance of music In the
\ home life of the people, and emphat-
| (rally laid down the precept that thc
| foundation ot a nation's musical life
was the music In the home.

KEEP CIRCULATING
We are hearing a good deal these days from
prosperity boosters about our chances of gathering the "nimble dollar." How about the "Nimble
saleman?" Salesmen, like coins, accomplish
most by keeping in constant circulation. A nickel
is worth more to the business world than a dollar
if it changes hands twenty-one times or more, to
the dollar's once.     Keep circulating.
GET THE GUNS
People are becoming interested in the growth
of crime. President Coolidge in his Memorial
Day address laid great stress upon law enforcement. Justice Taft recently said: "The means
for coping with crime and criminals are neither
adequate nor effective."
It seems to us that a long step in the right
direction would be to get the guns. In France
the possession of a pistol by a robber is a capital
crime. In England, no one carries a gun, not
even an office. But here, entirely too many
crooks tote shooting irons.
In a number of communities the hardware
j dealers have voluntarily ceased handling revolv-
i ers. lt would be a good thing if it were impossi-
! ble to buy a pistol anywhere. Why not try getting the guns to stop the increase in murders and
I holdups.
GRATIFYING PROGRESS
SHOWN IN BRANCHES
OF FARMING INDUSTRY
CAST YOUR BREAD UPON THE WATERS
Sometimes we hear complaint against the
frequent demands for subscriptions to various
drives for welfare activities. But, after all, the
money the average man gives to such causes is a
mere pittance compared to the amount he spends
on his own selfish pleasures.
In every town there are movements which
call for the expenditure of money. Some of
these are of a distinctly public character, and are
paid through taxation. Others are of a semi-
public character, and for them the funds must be
raised by voluntary contributions. These must
come from thi; men who are doing the business
of the town and who have money. There is no
other way. The man who has the money is the
man who must pay the bills, il* they are paid.
Most enterprises of a public nature which haye
for their object the bettering of conditions, business and otherwise, in a town, will, directly or
indirectly, return more than the money expended to those who pay it.
LIGHTNING BUG STOCKINGS
Attention, men! The female of the species,
not content with the havoc she has already
wrought, is now planning to keep the men awake
at night and drive 'em wild.
The German dye makers, aided and abetted
by the sirens and flappers of all nations, are enlisted in this diabolical drive. Lightning-bug
stocking are about to cause riots along Berlin's
fashionable thoroughfares and spread over the
face of the earth.
Tired of silk in the ordinary colors, the Berlin girls have fallen for the latest invention of the
dye experts, stockings treated with phosphorus,
which glow in the dark.
They're so practical, their wearers say. No
one wearing these luminous oddities ever falls
down stairs in the dark, for they're much better
than a pocket flashlight. Some say they wear
them to save the electric light bill.
In the daytime the "lightning bugs" look just
like any other stockings.
But at night, oh, boy! they blossom forth—
embroidered in various phosphorescent shades of
violet and green, and sparkle like gems.
We thought the limit had been reached with
short skirts, rolled stockings and sleeveless gowns
but now she comes along with a stunt that will
make men stoop shouldered.
It is all right to take things as they come,
but it is just as well to be sure that they belong
to you.
A BOUNDLESS INFLUENCE
So great is the influence of a sweet-minded
woman on those around her that it is almost
boundless. It is to her that friends come in seasons of sorrow and sickness, for health and comfort. One soothing touch of her kindly hands
works wonders in the feverish child; a few word.",
let fall from her lips in the ear of a sorrow-stricken sister will do much to raise the load of grief
that is bowing its victim down to the ground in
anguish. The husband comes home worn out
with the pressure of business, and feeling irritable with the world in general, but when he enters the cozy sitting room, and sees the blaze of
the fire, and meets his wife's smiling face he succumbs in a moment to the soothing influences,
which act as a Balm of Gilead to his wounded
spirits that are wearied with the stern realities
of life. The rough school boy flies into a rage
from the taunts of his companions, to And solace
in his mother's smile. The little one, full of
grief with her large trouble, finds a haven of rest
on her mother's breast; and one might go on with
instance after instance of the influence that a
sweet-minded woman has in the social circle with
which she is connected. Beauty is an insignificant power when compared with hers.
There seems to be two big problems before
the people today—where to park and where to
jump.
The fellow in the old days who died with his
boots on was a bad man but today he is nothing
but a pedestrian.
According to statistics, short skirts have
caused a decrease in the number of accidents.
Statisticians did not state, however, how mar.y
trees and telephone posts have been damaged by
careless walking of men.
"Now children," said the teacher, "write
down all you have learned about King Alfred, but
don't say anything about the burning of the cakes
I want to find out what else you know." Half an
hour later a scholar handed in his effort: "King
Alfred visited a lady at a cottage, but the less said
about it the better."
Last fall one of our residents found it necessary to make a business trip to the South during
the hottest months. As it was quite cool here
when he left, it did not occur to him that the underwear he was accustomed to wearing might be
uncomfortable in a warmer climate. A few days
later his wife received the following telegram:

VICTORIA.--Gratifying progress is
shown in several branches ol tho
(arming lndmtry by the complete statistics for 1924 just issued from th')
ofllce of Hon. E. D. Barrow, Minister
ot Agriculture. This is in despite
of the adverse conditions which existed during the growing and harvest months.
The total value of the farm production for the twelve months
unmounted to $00,629,224. which la
close on one million dollars in excess of the 1923 figures. At the
same time there was a substantial
decrease in the imports of farm products, this amounting to 14 per cent.
Exports from the province show a
slight Increase.
Chief increases tn production are
in poultry, meets and honey. Daily
production was the largest on record. The area sown to grain was
somewhat smaller than ln 1923, but
the production showed an increase
in quantity and value. Livestock of
all kinds showed gains.

C\ ne day In early summer, a party of guides were
*"^ cumpir.g near Emerald Lake in the Canadian
Pacific Rockies.   Now it happened that the campers
had with them a very young and very unwise dog,
who rashly got frisky with a Lady Black Bear and
chased her up one of thc hig jack-pines standing on
the border of the lovely lake. The only thing that
saved the young canine was the fact that the lady
was a Black Bear, not a Grizzly. But when the bear
stayed on her lofty perch, thc campers discovered that
she had left behind her a young family, cuddly little
things not much larger than puppies and just ns playful. Two of them they took along, leaving one for
the unnatural mother. .
One was a light-brown fluffy thing, so her new
friends christened her Biondie, the other being of the
dark brown variety, naturally was called Brunette.
They were about two months old when Mary Graham
Bonner met them and, so charmed was she with the
two baby cubs, that she tells the story in St. Nicholas'
Magazine. Vlf you went away and came back in a
week, you'd hardly know them, they grow so fast!

There never were brighter little bears, no, nor smarter
ones. They will keep you entertained always!" And
it was all pretty true. But winter was coming and
as they had been brought up by humans, the guides
feared that their native instinct would not assert itself and decided to build a winter bed for them. But
even though they had spent the summer with humans,
they were going to sleep through the winter in their
own lares and penates—the guides' den was not dark
enough. So the stupid humans learned that all the
shades should be pulled down in the little house and
nil the curtains drawn, and in crawled the two little
henrs, and when only a day or two later, when one
of thc guides went to look, they still had their little
green-brown eyes partly open but were too sleepy to
even be interested in their favorite meal of cakes and
syrup. And soon they were off to the Land of Nod
to dream sweet dreams until snows grew soft and they
could venture out if the sun wcre bright enough to
cast their shadow. And when that time finally came,
the first words they heard were the old familiar ones:
"How they have grown?"
A TERRIBLE INJUSTICE
An old colored mammy, whose husband had just successfully sued for
divorce, came slowly down the court
house steps talking to herself:

extinguish the flames. Other help

One lesson which "For Sale," tho

whiskey will not mix. Those who are
wont to look at the wine while It Is

In conjunction with the Native Sons
of Canada Dominion Day sports last
Wednesday the Courtenay and Cumberland teams locked horns in one
of the most listless ball games this
season. Neither team was up to full
strength. This fact coupled with the
idea he had to win bis own game
helped Smiling Lefty Barkhouse to
achieve the unknown feat of fanning
twenty men and yet losing the game
That game youngster was thc uncrowned hero ot the day and he
scribbled his name in the local hall
of baseball fame when he established
this record.
It was probably one of Lefty's most
brilliant games and of the few chances accepted by his team-mates an
even half dozen were bungled. Our
Dave Hunden hurled for the locals
and nicked 12 batters and on two occasions whiffed the big stickers with
men on second and third. Bill Boyd
provided a thrill (?) at third. Bill
redeemed himself with a home run
however. Jim McKay made the
catch of the game in left field when
he robbed Dixon of a hit. He nearly
made the most sensational catch in
years on a long drive from Lefty
Barkhouse but  was inches short.
