No Bible Reading
In Public Schools
Resolution Overwhelmingly Defeated. Mrs. Banks Represents Cumberland at Annual
Convention-*
The perennial question of bible
reading in the public schools again
cropped up at the annual convention
of the school trustees, held at Pentic
ton ,and no doubt, Mrs. T. E. Banks,
the Cumberland delegate will have
something of Interest to convey to
Cumberlanders on her return. Tha
resolution of bible reading fn the
schools  was  defeated.
A. G. Perry saw no reason why pupils should be denied the reading of
portions of "the greatest book In the
world."
He reiterated his statement of last
year that the reading of properly
selected passages would be an incentive to boys and girls to study the
bible further, and he was seconded by
Mrs. Jessie Grant, North Vancouver.
Immediately the argument began
delegates, standing two and three at a
time, started to express their views.
If the living conditions of the children
were taken care of the spiritual welfare would follow, it waa contended
and with so many interpretations of
the scriptures in a cosmopolitan population, explanation must he made
and this would lead to a family row.
Following defeat of an amendment to
excuse conscientious objectors among
school teachers from reading selected
passages from the bible in school, the
motion itself was overwhelmingly
turned down at the afternoon session.
Best Report Presented
The annual report showed thai
there were now 109 members in the
association, an increase during the
year of seventeen. Finances are in a
healthy condition, it was shown. H.
Manning, president, remarked that it
was the best executive report ever
presented to the association, and
nothing sounded quite as good as the
evidence that they were looking after
the pioneer settlers in outlying districts.
' A resolution submitted by Courtenay for the amendment of Section
133 B, making ft possible for a teacher to appeal the unanimous decision of a board of school trustees
regarding dismissal was lost on thc
ground that it was not British justice-.

Institutions in the interior, although
some of these institution-! are only a
few miles from coal mines. This has
been done in tlie past because these
heating plants were built only to use
Coast  coal.
Cheaper Than Oil
Experiments carried on by Mi'.
Leek, Mr. McKenzie learned, have
proved definitely that powdered coal
is cheaper than oil and equally efficient.
"But," Mr. Leek explained, "coal is
not usually used scientifically and,
under such circumstances, of course,
It does not compare with oil. If coal
were used scientifically, with proper
equipment, it would soon he holding
Its own with oil. The apparatus i^
available now, and at prices which
people do not hesitate to pay for oil-
burning equipment. Owners of large
buildings aud householders will find
that with the automatic stoking and
burning equipment now available
coal is more satisfactory, a cheaper
and a safer fuel than oil.
"When the gasoline internal conv
bustion engine was invented, it was
thought it would do away with
steam." Mr. Leek said. "The contrary
was the case. The makers of steam
engines found themselves faced with
competition which forced them to
produce  more  efficient  and  cheaper

BIBLE READING IN THE SCHOOLS
THIS old controversy again cropped up at the
annual convention of school trustees held
at Penticton during the past week. It is not
our province to discuss this matter to any great
extent, as almost every time the matter is spoken
of, unchristian feelings are stirred up. The news
from Penticton is that the convention voted down
the proposal to have bible reading in the public
schools, and whilst to a certain extend regretting
it, we think they have taken the wise course.
Bible reading should be started in the home, and
if the old custom of family prayers and a passage
from the bible read in the home were revived, the
perennial question of bible reading in the schools
would  not  bother our  school  trustees  at  their

HEALTH SERVICE
of the
Canadian Medical Association
Questions concerning health, addressed to the Canudian Medical
Association, 1S4 College Street,
Toronto, will be answered by letter. Questions as to diagnosis
and treatment will not be answered.
Suspecting Tuberculosis
,
Perhaps, to most persons,
picion of tuberculosis means cough,
sputum, raising of blood, and pain
in the chest. These are indeed signs
of tuberculosis. Blood spitting should
always be conslderel as due to tuberculosis until il is proved otherwise.
We may say that the person who
raises some blood early in the disease is fortunate, because this frightens him and sends him to a physician
However, the signs mentioned above
are what occur when the dlease is
well established and what we should
know are lhe signs and symptoms
that occur earlier than this.
It is not our intention to attempt
to describe all the earliest signs which
would make one suspicious of tuberculosis, but rather to point out one or
two of the commonest, which should
i which should send them to their phys-
J lcian for examination, to find out
I whether or not there is any actual
I disease.
;     The most important of these earlv
i suspicious signs is the most difficult
to define.    Il  is chronic  fatigue, un-
j due fatigue, causing the individual to
I tire easily.   The person who finds that
a   sus-1 jje js regularly tired from work which
usually does not fatigue him, that he
Is tired every afternoon, ihat everything is an effort, should have a medical  examination.
Any cough lasting over six weeks
should suggest medical examination,
If these two signs were considered
by all as danger signals which would
turn them towards their doctor's office, there would he fewer cases of
(tuberculosis that are far advanced
when the physician llrst sees them.
Not everyone of these symptoms
has tuberculosis, but some have, and
the only way in which one can protect
himself is by having a thorough medical examination to ascertain the
cause in any particular ese. and, If it
is tuberculosis, to secure early treai-
ment which offers the best chance for
he known to alt. and the presence of [ cure.

Of   Fellowship   Between
Churches Shown
The spirit of fellowship that exists
between the churches in Courtenay
was beautifully demonstrated on Monday night when St, George's United
Church was filled almost to capacity
by an audience of all denominations
to hear an interesting address by the
Very Rev., the Dean of Columbia,
Dean Quainton, who took as his subject, "'111111101' and Pathos in a Parson's Life." The lecture was under
the auspices of the Parish Hall Com
mittee of the Anglican Church who
are endeavoring to raise sufficient
money with which to erect a parish
hall in Courtenay, and not having a
suitable place at present to hold such
a gathering, enlisted the co-operation
of the board of management of the
United Church with the result that
they were permitted the use of St.
George's at a nominal rental to cover
cost of light and heat.
For nearly two hours the Dean kept
his audience entertained with anecdotes and incidents illustrating humorous situations arising in the life of
a parson, many of which were personal incidents of his own pastorate.
There was never a day, he said, but
something of interest came up and
had he kept a book of these things he
would have had a "book of gold."
At the close of his address a vote of
thanks was moved by Mr. B. Hughes,
seconded by Mr. R. U. Hurford, and
in replying to same Dean Quainton
lauded the eilorts of the committee in
their endeavor to acquire a parish hall
and promised if at any future time he
could assist them in a similar manner
he would be pleased to do so.

CHANEY'S NEWEST
CONTAINS THRILLS
"London   After   .UldnlKlit"   a   Weird
and Creepy Selective
Story
Uncanny, creepy, weirdly mysterious, "London After Midnight," one ol
the greatest mystery dramas Lon
Chaney has ever appeared in, will be
shown at the Ilo-Ilo Theatre Friday
and Saturday. October 5th and 6th.
It's a Metro-Ooldwyn-Mayer picture
written and directed by Tod Browning responsible for those other Chaney successes. "The Unholy Three,"
"The Road to Mandalay" and "The
Unknown."
Fascinating with its theme of hypnotism, its delving into the supernatural and the spirit world, this film
employs enough mystery to chill the
blood of the spectator and yet rivet
the eye and attention In a breathless
interest. The story is one of a baffling murder which draws the attention of Scotland Yard. Chaney takes
the part of a master detective. In
solving the mystery he discovers that
the murderer Is guilty of a former
crime, a five-year-old death that had
been pronounced a suicide. How he
makes the criminal confess and how
he discovers that both murders were
love crimes, committed because of the
passion of an old man for a young and
beautiful girl, supply enough thrills
for several rattling good dramas.
Chaney fs supported by Marceline
Day. Conrad Nagel. Henry B. Walthall
Polly Moran and Claude King.
