TEACHERS' INSTITUTE
COURTENAY, Nov. 15.—The third
annual convention oi the North Vancouver Island Teachers' Institute was
held on Thursday and Friday of this
week when sonic fifty teachers from
all parts of the north end of Vancouver Island were present. The
convention opened with musical selections hy the Cumberland school
bund under the conductorship of Mr.
Murray, after which Mr. Murray and
the band were very warmly congratulated hy members of the Department
of Education ou tbe splendid showing.
Mr. John Kyle, A.K.C.A., Supervisor
of Technical Education told those
present that " a band or orchestra
were formed It could be run as a night
school when the department would
pay four-fifths of the salary of the
Instructor. This remark aroused
sufficient Interest In Courtenay thot
tbe School Board met Mr. Kvle and
Captain Lloyd with a view to forming
a band in connection with the Navy
League. There is • now every possibility that Courtenay will have a band
of its own in the future and the
"bandsmen" wlll have a smart naval
uniform. The Instruments may be
the property of the city under the
care of the instructor who would receive a salary and would be responsible for the musical Instruments.
One of the most interesting parts
of the convention was a display of
world famous pictures in tbe form of
lantern slides by Mr. Kyle, who pointed out the tendency of artists throughout different periods to reproduce nature or to improve on nature. These
artists Included Constable Turner,
Corot, Ganlsboro and others, and a
number of painters of the present day.
Councillor Theed Pearse, in the absence of the Mayor ond as president
of the Board of Trade, welcomed the
visiting teachers to Courtenay in a
well worded and concise address. Mr.
G. W. Stubbs, president of the Institute and Prlncipiil of tbe Courtenay
Public School ln his address, dwelt
on the Importance of the present educational year in British Columbia,
because of the extensive educational
survey which is being made by the department. He suggested that the local teachers should meet often and
tbat they should secure speakers
from the outside in order tliat the
teachers might he kept ln touch with
modern progress.
The election of officers for the year
resulted as follows: Hon. President,
S. J. Willis, Supt. of Education; President, Mr. F. R. Shenstone, Cumberland; Vice President, Mr. J. W. Young
Courtenay; Secretary-Treasurer, Mr.
Geo. E. Apps, Cumberland.
Miss Itlddell conveyed to the teachers in a splendid manner some of her
own enthusiasm for music. Besides
giving practical suggestions in ear
test, modulated drill and tone production, she demonstrated with her audience the teaching of two charming
children's songs. So impressed were
the listeners that Miss Riddell waB obliged to give a repetition ot this during the luncheon hour. An Interesting discussion followed In which principal Webb of Nanaimo urged all
teachers to attempt singing, pointing
out that the percentage of people who
were tone deaf and therefore unable
to teach singing was In the same relation to the percentage of those who
were color blind. Plenty of people
who imagined that they had no idea
of music are entirely mistaken and
can very soon learn t0 sins-
Mr. John Kyle In a conversational
and very Interesting manner dwelt
with the subject of drawing. He
stressed the importance of teaching
design drawing and the ability to
make a working drawing of a simple
mechanical contrivance, because he
felt tbat this was actual preparation
for life work. "If education does not
fit us to make a good living it is not
worth having," the speaker said. The
effect of the minimum wage act in
Vancouver, as far as the millinery
trade was concerned has been the
cause of hats being imported from the
United States and from the east, as
the milliners refused to pay the minimum wage of seven dollars a week
claiming that apprentices are not
worth that amount. If the minimum
wage law is allowed to stand we shall
have to educate our students until
they are worth at least seven dollars
a week said the speaker. An obvious impossibility In some cases.
After this address luncheon was served by the Ladles Aid of St. George's
Presbyterian Church and was very
much enjoyed. During the Interval
Miss Riddell led in community singing.

For Life In Local Hospital
Mr. William Gordon, at one time a
prominent Cumberland merchant, but
more recently a resident at Gartley's
Beach, had a miraculous escape from
instant death on Saturday afternoon
last when the Ford Sedan he was
driving failed to cross the railroad
tracks at Royston ahead of the oncoming north bound train of the E.
and  N.  Railway.
The engine struck the Ford fairly
amldship and carried lt along for a
distance of fifty-one yards before a
stop could be made. The car was
smashed to atoms, wreckage being
strewn along the truck for a considerable distance. Mr. Gordon wub picked up from between the rails In a
terribly battered condition and carried to tho waiting room at Royston
station. Dr. Urlggs, of Courtenay,
answered a hurried phone cull nnd tlio
ambulance from Cumberland was
rushed down. -After Ilrst aid had
been rendered hy Dr. Briggs, the unfortunate victim was brought to tho
Cumberland General Hospital, Miss
Brown, mutron of the hospital who
happened to be a passenger on the
train came up in the ambulance with
Mr.  Gordon.
Enquiries at the hospital ellcted the
information that the unfortunate victim Is getting along as well as can bo
expected. How Mr. Gordon failed
to notice the on-coming train ls a
complete mystery as a clear view for
a considerable distance can be had of
the track.
This terrible accident of Saturday
last should be a warning to a lot of

Cumberland United wlll be at home

In charge and the local lineup wlll be,

Graham, Fowler and Hitchens, with
MacDonald aa spare man.
Nanaimo visited Ladysmlth Sunday
last but were unable to get more
than a one-goal draw. Of the game
the Nanaimo Herald says:
There was no score in the first half,
and both teams started out in great
shape in the second period. It began
to look, however, as though there
would be no score, when Campbell
who, with Anderson, had played u
great game at back for Ladysmlth,
kindly donated a goal to the visitors.
It Is probably the first bloomer of
the kind that Jock ever pulled off
but it counted a goal for the visitors.
From the kick off Ladysmlth almost
got through, and It should be stated
here that Routledge must be credited wih two great clearances. Keeping up the pressure Davis eventually
secured in front of goal and lodged
the ball ln the net for the home side's
counter. Both teams now dug in to
get the leading goal but the defence
waa too good on both sides. Once
Watson struck the cross bar with a
great shot but the ball rebounded
Into play and was cleared. On the
whole a draw represented the play of
the match.
Roy Clift'e, Courtenay's promising
light heavyweight won from E. Saylcs
by a knockout In the first round in
Seattle on Tuesday last. Sayles is
a husky sailor of 1.5 pounds, but Roy
made short work of him, and if ho
keeps going at bis present pace, lt
wlll be difficult to prophesy where be

Negotiations are under way to
match Roy with Heine Zimmerman, a
well known Vancouver heayweight
who has u long record ln the ring,
having fought Reddlck, the present
holder of the Canadian light heavyweight title, twice, and has also a long
string of victories to his credit, both
ln Australia and the United States.
There is a possibility that the contest
may take place in Cumberland, and
if so, there should be a record attendance.

DEPARTING FOOTBALLER
HONORED AT A SOCIAL
EVENING FRIDAY LAST
Fred Deluce, who left Cumberland
on Sunday morning last for Vancouver, en route for New Zealand,
was tho guest of honor at a smoker
and get-to-gethcr ot the Cumberland
United Football team and executive
committee.' Mr. R. Strachan was
chairman and toastmaster for the
evening, filling the position in a very
capable manner.
After the toast to the King Mr.
Thomas was called on for a piano
solo and the various vocal, musical
selections rendered throughout the
evening were Interspersed with toasts
Those contributing to the Musical
program included Messrs H. Thomas,
R. Goodall, R. Yates, W. and H. Jackson, H. Dockerty, J. Smith, J. T.
Brown, C. Hitchens and "Toots"
Plump. The program rendered was
an exceptionally long one and with
several toasts ln between. One o'clock
in the morning rolled round all too
soon.
The toast to the "Cumherland United
Football Team" was responded to by
the manager, Mr. W. Walker in a very
able manner. Mr. R. Brown responded to the toast of tho "Cumberland Rangers," and ln the course of
his remarks said the idea of the
Rangers coming into being was as a
nursery ground for the senior team.
"Our Local PresB" was responded to
by Mr. J. Vernon-Jones, who at tho
the conclusion of his remarks paid a
glorious tribute to the departing
guest and advanced the hope that he-
fore next football season rolled round,
"Freddy" would return to Cumberland. The toast "Our Supporters"
wns responded to by Mr. Chus. Graham, who gave a brief outline of the
rapid strides footbull hud mude In
B. C. during thc past 15 years or so.
He said he waa sorry to see Deluce
leuve Cumberland, bul wished all success and happiness In his new home
across the seas and If at any time be
had any Inclination of returning to
Cumberland, a warm welcome awaited
him. Toastmaster Strachan called
on the president of the club and after
a toast to the departing guest, Mr. J.
L. Brown the popular president of the
Cumberland United Club, said they
had come to the most important part
of their program and the real reason
for their presence there that evening.
He referred to the departure of Fred
Deluce saying how sorry he was per-
sonnlly to see hlm go. Ile had enjoyed his play on thc football field and
hnd been happy In his company off
the field. In the words of the old
sage he might say "There goes a man"
However, he said Mr. Deluce had decided to try pastures new, and they
could not let him go away without

M. B. Tribe, Treasurer.
Mr. Tribe also reported for the finance committee in connection with
tlle arranging of the payment ot the
1924 Fair prizes. He explained that
the bank had reasonably requested
tbat a loan should be backed by some
responsible persons such as the directors of tbe association. Mr. Edwards thought that the bunk was only
taking a common sense business view
point In asking this. Mr. Crockett
thought that borrowing from the bank
wub not very satisfactory and not the
thing for an old established society
such as the Comox Association. If
the bank wants the security of every
farmer in the valley for the small
amount required we had better do
without it, he said. It was then explained that with the amount of two
hundred dollars which wus being
turned over to the parent ussociatton
by the auxiliary, it would only take
about three huuderd dollars to discharge the whole of 1924 prize list
liability, the full amount of which
was over seven hundred dollai.. The
association then resolved to empower
sary loan. This means thut the lust
sary loan. This means that tse lajt
Fair's prizes will be paid forthwith.

From a business point of view, and

High School on Monday lust was one
of the most successful yet held by
that body, whether it was the Introduction of the social side of the refreshments, or whether it was tho
work of the executive, or both together, they deserve credit for the success
of tbe meeting.
Mrs. McNaughton the president, wus
in the chair, und aftor the reading of
the minutes by the Secretary Miss
Mordy, a full discussion of various
mutters was brought before the meeting, first Rev. LeverBedge put forward some suggestions relative to the

Mr, Murray entered into the sports
aspect of school life und gave a resume of work performed In other centres where thut phase of school Iho

the library, nnd showed how so many
of the boys nnd girls were unacquainted with the most ordinary books
that one would expect them to ull

] Stevenson's works which he mentioned. He also deplored the fact how
hard It was to get boys and girls to
cultivate the art of reading when in
so many homes the list of books were
so smull and no encouragement wus
given for rending nnd getting knowledge In thut way. He also endorsed
the suggestion thnt a Pr'ze be given
for thc best essny on some book, but
he ulso stressed the fnct that it would
be much better to have say twenty

Ratepayers Should Guarantee
Bonds Says Acting-Mayor Simms
COURTENAY, Nov. 18.—When acting Mayor Simms brought up the matter of river transportation at Monday night's council meeting everyone
present was on the qui vive and followed the speaker with great interest. Mr. Simms had just returned
from an interview with Mr. A. Mc-
GIUIs the managing director of the
Courtenay-Vancouvcr Transportation
Company In Vancouver in connection
with the sudden stoppage of tho
Courtenay river service. Mr. Simms
asked the council to reconsider the
matter.      He said:
"We have all heard the Baying, thut
'The end justifies Ihe means,' and my
goal is to muke Courtenay a city
where living ca„ he cheapened, und
the farming community wlll be able
to get their produce to the market nt
reasonable rates.
"Courtenay can only be 'a bettor
than the avernge town' by using our
river. The only possible way to get
the river opened up for traffic will be
for the ratepayers to guarantee bonds
for the flrst real freight boat that
mokes   the  attempt   of   a   hi-weekly
service from Vancouver.
"No private company can, unassisted, hope to stand the squeezing of
competition that will surely come
wiien the river is made possible for
bouts.
"This company has proved thc
possibility of a regular weekly service in ull weather, but Is it reasonable, or fair, to expect us to do tho
pioneer work, unasBlsted, and then
he cast on one side, when the river
Is deepened and made safe for any
freight boats?
"The city will not be asked for one
dollar In money—simply asked to
guarantee the bonds—and even supposing that this company fails (which
is a very remote possibility) then the
citizens will be assured that the river
will he dredged and the services continued in some way for the period o(
the bond Issue. This is what 1 mean
by saying that the end will justify the
means.
"So far exception has been taken to
the guaranteeing of bonds on tho
ground that it's a poor business proposition.      I would point out that ro

far no details, or safeguards, have
been thoroughly gone into and considered, either hy the committee or
the council.
"Now, as the Mayor of this City who
was chiefly responsible for the
Brown's River Water Contract, the
opening of city lanes, und the re-organizing of the City Municipal staff
and buildings, I wish to say that iii
none of these undertakings, (all ol
which were severely criticized at the
time) had 1 as much confidence as I
now have in the ultimate good and
immense benefit to Courtenay thut
this project will be.
"Having studied this question from
every angle, I am convinced that the
ratepayers would hnve no chance ol'
losing, but as a shareholder in the
company I can see that the new boat
built -by the bond issue, will reduce
our prospects of dividends—I place
the city first and am willing to risk
my present holdings to gain the desired end.

shareholders together and report to

ENJOYABLE TIME
AT COMOX DANCE
COUKTENAY, Nov. 18.—A very
good time was spent Monday night at
the Comox Community Hall when a
good number of the residents of Comox and the surrounding district gathered to pass a few hours ln recreation which took the form of a whist
drive followed by a most enjoyable
dance. The successful card players were: Ladies' lirst Mrs. H. D.
Ford, second Mrs. Ueld Good, with
Mrs. Joe Gordon capturing the booby
prize. Mr. J. Kingston and Mr. Harry Gurney tied for gentlemen's first
place and on cutting for the prize,
Mr. Kingston was the winner. Mr.
Dave Steel came in first for the gentlemen's booby. Eleven tables were
occupied. The .music for the dance
was supplied by the local orchestra
consisting of Miss McLennan and
Mr. H. IT. Ford and was very much appreciated by the dancers. During
the evening enjoyable refreshments
were served and the dancers did not
leave until one-thiry Tuesday morning.
HUNTERS BAG
FOUR PANTHERS
IN ONE TRIP
COURTENAY,—When MrB. Cowie
of the Condensery Road saw a large
Cougar at the back door at dusk on
Monday night she sure let out a yell.
But there was no need of alarm, because It was only Bob who had crawled Inside the skin of one of the
largest panthers killed in the district recently. When Bob Cowie and
Tom McQuillan started out for a hunt
on Monday they little expected to
hump into four cougars. They did
though, and what is more they killed
the quartette and u very profitable
day's work was the result. They
were hunting between Brown's River
and Dove Creek and were a good long
way from home, and no doubt had a
lot of hard work packing out their
kill. The four animals consisted of
a large female and three kittens about
six months old. The forty dollar
bounty on each carcass was collected,
ond a hundred and sixty dollars for
one day's work is pretty good. But
they sold the skin of the old animal
for ten dollars and the small carcasses for three dollars each. This
makes a total of $179.00 so far, and
they still have the carcass of the old
panther which they left ln the woods
and the hides of the three kittens.

CAR THIEF WAS

COURTENAY,—Late on Saturday
night or early Sunday morning an

Riverside Hotel. The car was being
used by Dr. McKenzie who is taking
the place of Dr. Butters during the
latter's absence. It is understood
that the police are making an Investigation, but so far the car has not been
recovered. The taking of private
cars is a very serious offence and

belonging to men who are serving

COUNCIL TRANSACTS
MUCH BUSINESS AT
MONDAY'S SESSION
-T-.	
COURTENAY, Nov. 18.—The regular meeting of the city council held
in the City Hall on Monday proved
very interesting. Acting Mayor Slmms
was in the chair and the councillors
present were, Messrs Cooke, Embleton, Fielder, Hagarty and Pearse. A
considerable amount of business was
transacted during thc session which
lasted until well past eleven o'clock.
An application from Mr. Thos.
Gwllt for the blowing of certain
stumps on Alice Street where Mr.
Kwllt intends to erect 'w0 dwelling
houses, brought forth some very decided opinions of the counctlmen. Aldermen Hagarty and Embleton
thought It would be good business
from the city's point of view to have
the work done as the city would receive revenue from the houses to be
built. Alderman Fielder said "We
all know the stumps should be blown,
but the council had to find the money"
He thought that if the requests ot anyone who makes application were going to be granted, attention should be
paid to requests of the past which
have been overlooked. Alderman
Pearse thought that a stump on Warren Avenue should be removed, and
finally made a motion to htat effect
which was supported by Alderman
Embleton. After a good deal of discussion It was decided that both the
requests of Mr. Gwllt and Alderman
Pearse be granted.
An application for electric light
service trom Mr. G. B. Capes on the
Cumberland road was referred to
committee.
A letter from Assistant Engineer
Philips requesting the council to pass
a by-law regulating traffic on streets
of the city, to conform to regulations
applicable to other roads, which
would limit a vehicle and Its load to
four short tons, and would remain ln
force until next April, was read and
discussed. The outcome of this was
that Alderman Pearse gave notice
that he would bring in a by-law covering  this  regulation.
Numerous accounts were referred
to Ihe Finance Committee to be paid
If found correct. Work on Brown's
river is to be proceeded with. The
supply of light and water for the proposed new laundry on Union Bay road
was discussed. The City Clerk reported that the Little River electric
light extension was nearly complete.
The work would have been finished
but tor work connecting up new
houses in the city which had to be
done by the city staff.
The first and second reading of tha
by-law prohibiting the discharging
ot fire arms within the city caused a
good deal of discussion. The mayor
thought the city was now large
enough to have such a regulation. Alderman Pearse said that the new bylaw would Inflict no hardships. It
was only ten minutes walk to the city
limits from any point where unlimited

While pruning In November is not
recommended as the most economical
or best time it can be done then without any serious harm if one is not
able to do it ln the early spring.
The removal of all broken or dead
limbs or any rubbish from the orchard before winter is desirable.
The vegetable garden should be
cleared of all old tops or unused vegetables which might carry over insects or disease, and, if it is most
convenient to apply a heavy coat of
rotted manure now, it should be done
with the object of digging or ploughing It under as soon as the ground
is lit to work in the spring.
In the flower garden, roses will, In
most places, need some protection.
Covering the plants with earth just
before winter sets ln ls one of the
most satisfactory practices giving a
broad base to the mound of soil, so
that the roots will have some additional protection. A few evergreen
boughs thrown over the mound of soil
will help" hold the snow and give
further protection. Climbing roses
are best protected by covering with
a box, which Is filled with dry leaves

YEAR'S WOOL CLIP
VALUABLE ONE
The wool clip of Canada this year
wlll total 13,000,000 pounds, with a
value to sheepmen of $4,000,000, according to a bulletin issued by the
Dominion department of agriculture.
Tho quality of the product is sold to
be the highest in recent years. Approximately half the wool clip, the
bulletin estimates, will remain in
Canada for manufacture. Last year
the Dominion exported 6,009,079
pounds, of which the United States
purchased 5,261,189 pounds and Great
Britain 706,028 pounds. Government
wool grading and systematic marketing by the Co-operative Wool Growers, which handles 90 per cent, of the
clip, have raised the quality of Canadian wool and Increased the demand
and with the increased demand the
sheep raising industry has been
given a great stimulous.

have they meant greater returns from
the market standpoint but they have
been the means of advertising each

In Manitoba there are fifteen clubs
on the Canadian National Railways,
with a total membership of approximately 400. While the organization
and supervision work has been carried on co-operatively by the provincial and dominion Departments of Agriculture, the member of these clubs
have taken part in the Canadian National Hallways Bacon Hog competition, and collectively have raised over
1,001) hogs. The boys and girls have
marked co-oprcatively eight carloads.
In most cases the hogs raised by the
boys and girls were of superior type

from each district as a whole. Tho
young farmers and farmerettes are
demonstrating what can be done when

RACING WITH DEATH
Two Years
Of Agony
Weak stomach made life a burden
for Victoria lady but Dreco is rapidly
helping to restore her to health.
Hardly a day passes but some place
on this continent there occurs a fatality as the result ot an automobile
trying  (o beat  a   train  over a  level
crossing.      Periodically  Ibis  part  of
tbe  country   is   horrified   hy  one   ot
these accidents snuffing out the lives
of one, two or more occupants of an |
automobile, or resulting in serious in- j
jury  as   was   thc   case   on   Saturday!
afternoon lasl.
One would think that Ihe publicity j
given to this form of accident would
deter the drivers of automobiles from
taking such chances. The fact that
they continue, and even increase, indicates the opposite.
This kind of dare-deviltry is beyond the sphere of law. While it
brings its reward at times to the driver, it imposses a like penalty upon
his innocent passengers.
What Is lacking, however, is strong
public abhorrence such as attaches to
murder and other crimes. More
often blame for level-crossing accidents attaches to the motorman or the
engineer of the train, the public ignoring the fact that it is much easier
to stop a light automobile than a
heavy train of either passenger or
freight cars.
A step towards fixing responsibility
for death at level crossings has been
taken by several states on the other
side of the line. In North Carolina.
West Virginia and Kentucky automobile drivers are required by law to
come to a full stop at crossings. When
street cars and steam trains cross on
a level, one or other must make a
positive stop. The same rule should
apply to automobiles.
For every passenger killed, the
railroads now carry 13 million safely.
For every passenger Injured, they
carry 010,000 without injury. It was
a different story before thc safely
first campaigns. Accidents get the
attention. Safety is so common it's
ignored. With our speed and congestion, the marvel is not that we
have so many accidents but that we
don't have more. However, that's no
reason for cutting down our present
degree of vigilance.
THEY HATE TO THINK
If you want to find out what hard
and disagreeable work It is for most
people to do any thinking just discuss something that would require
them to think, or hand them a serious book to read on some subject
that would require thinking to understand It. You will find that a lot
of people shy ot the least idea of
using their heads, and prefer lo take-
their Ideas ready-made from some one
else.
"For over two years I had suffered
terribly from stomach trouble and
constipation," says Mrs. A. F. McLellan, of Point Ellis, Victoria, B.C. "Gas
formed on my stomach after eating
and it would bloat me up in an awful
way. I would get severe spells of
heartburn and my liver wus sluggish
too, so that 1 had frequent dizzy spells
and spots floated before my eyes. My
appetite was very poor and 1 had
to constantly take strong laxatives. 1
tried many medicines, but hept get-
ling worse aud worse and when I first
read about Dreco I had very little
faith In it. thinking It would he like
all the rest.
"Anyway, I decided to give it a trial
and you would hardly believe it, but
two bottles of Ihls wonderful medicine have done marvels for mc. I
cannot remember when I felt so good
as I do now. 1 haven't been bothered with gas since the first bottle
and can eat and enjoy most anything
now. My liver is active and so are
my bowels and 1 no longer have dizzy
spells or spots before my eyes."
Master your digestive system before it masters you. Take Dreco and
let its pure, natural herbal juices tone
and regulate the vital digestive organs and induce their healthy activity. Dreco contains no mercury,
potash or habit forming drugs.
Dreco is belli); specially introduced
in Cumberland by Lung's Drug1 Store,
and is sold by n good druggist everywhere. 17.
GOOD COUNTRY TO COME TO
K. V. Hansen, a Norwegian journalist, who has just completed an extensive tour of Western Canada, made
the following statement to a press
reporter on his return to Winnipeg:
"I have been most favorably impress-
wilh Western Canada, and shall undoubtedly do what I can through
newspaper articles to let the young
men of Scandinavian countries realize that this is a promising country
to which to come if they have a little
capital, a little aptitude for farm
work, and what is even better, a real
desire to dig in and make the best of
lhe circumstances in which they may
be placed."

A little Cumberland girl had been
taken lo tbe Wembley Exhibition by
her mother. While tbey were walking through tbe grounds tbe child
observed a negro.
"Oh, look, mummy," she whispered
in great excitement, "that man's got
a black face."
"Of course, dear," replied the mother, "he's a narive, and he's black all
over."
"Black all over," repealed the child
incredulously; "how do you know?"

TEACHERS' INSTITUTE
(Continued From  Page One)
spoke of the development of the will
lt was his contention that schools to-
diiy did not develop initiative. The
children had too much done for them
and were looked upon ns vessels to
ho lllled. Schools dwelt on Information not the development of the will.
Knowledge alone does not. teach tha
difference btwecn right and wrong. It
was knowledge and nothing else.
Building of character was barely
touched upon. He quoted the report of Ihe Protestant clergy of the
United States and the report of the
School oCmmlsslon of New York as
saying that the weakness of the wlll
and morality of the public schools
waB so great ns lo ho disastrous to
the children and a menace to the
State. He strongly favored the Introduction of morul and religious
training In the schools, saying Ihat
the difficulties In the way were no
greater than were difficulties ln the
way of responsible government In
Canada In the year 1830 when men
were lighting for something better 111
the way of government. Mr. Kyle
In the discussion that followed stated
that If the religious denominations
would formulate a scheme for the Instruction of a program of moral and
religious Instruction, he felt sure it
would have ihe favorable ear of the
department.
Miss E. R. Fisher of the model
scbool in Vancouver explained several projects for preliminary grades
and showed a number of completed
specimens which were of great interest to tlle assembled teachers. Mr.
Webb, principal of the Nanaimo Public Scbool spoke of "bulsness efficiency in schools," which showed his listeners beyond a shadow of a doubt
that he had explored with untiring
zeal every possible path in the vast
ramifications of an endless subject.
The members of the Courtenay
School Board and others were guests
of the Institute at a banquet served
In the basement of St. George's Presbyterian Church on Friday evening
when the spenkers were Messrs G. W.
Stubbs, G. E. Apps, Murray and John
Kyle. Inspector PaltorBon gave a
talk on thc Intelligence and Accomplishment tests which are being car
ried out as part of the educational
survey. In the evening the Courtenny school demonstrated geographical projects us un entertainment feature when thc guests were conducted
through India, Holland, Egypt, Japan,
London, Hudon Bay, and Eskimo
Land, as arranged by the pupils of
the various divisions. A special feature being the display of thc largest
map In the world of India.
The entertainment and the convention was brought to a close with a
dance held In the assembly hall of
the school on Friday night.
CHANGED SOCCER RULE
BRINGS NEW METHOD
INTO CORNER KICKING
LONDON, Nov. 20.—That some new
legislation is needed with regard to
the recent ruling regarding the scoring of a goal directly from a comer
kick was manifest in the Everton-
Arsenal match on Saturday last. This
last amendment to the rules was authorized this season, and provides thai
a player taking a corner kick may
score a goal without the ball touching another player.     Chcdzoy, of Ev-
erton, suw a loophole In this rule, and
on Saturday he took advantage of It,
Taking a corner kick, Inslead of kicking the ball to the goal mouth, ns Is
usually done, he took the hall along
close to tho line, got Into centre from
close range and shot. Tbe referee
did not Interfere with the pluy, consequently Rutherford, of Arsenal,
oopted the tactics and dribbled the
hall in from the corner Hag almost lo
the goal mouth. Neither attempt
was successful. The development ot
these now plays will bo watched closely, since neither Chedzoy nor Rutherford Infringed any rule In making
them. Nothing now prevents tho
backs from waiting on top of the
corner kicker and Impending the
kick.

On behalf of the Honorary Vice-President of the Club ho had much plea

thanked them all for their presence
there tliat evening; he thanked them
for tlielr kind remarks and the Honorary President l°r bis magnificent

"Five"  and "Nine"  Are
Confused In Telephoning
When there is a "five" or a "nine" in the number you give on the telephone,
be sure that the operator hears correctly, for these two numerals are often confused.
On the telephone there is also a similarity between "0" and "one," and "four and "0".
A telephone number should be given distinctly, the lips of the subscriber being close

"Well," replied Mrs. Farrell,
though fully, "a misaliance. I believe,
is when two people marry and one is
of Bucb a different or inferior station
that unhapplness results."
"Hy gorrtel That's th' very word 1

Uance, is ut? Ha, ha! I'm thlnkin' I

Morrison, pompously, leaning back
and Axing Pat with his keen eyes,

on th' C.N.R. an' goes back t' th'
States. I'm t' follow as soon as he's
slttled. Th' happy day comes at last
an' wld all me things packed, I
boards th 'train fer me husband's
home wid me heart fiutterln' in me
breast lolke a canary bird. Whin I
gits  t'   th'   border,   the   Immigration
0 licer puts his fut down. He won't
let me go another stip. I'm an alien,
he sez—born in Oirland—an' I mustn't join me husband because th' full
quota of British-born immigrants has
already gone over. Aven me tears
—an' I shed lots of 'em—failed t' move
hlm; an' I was turned back. Some
wan directed me t' th' British Counsel, but ss I'm an American citizen,
bavin' married an American, he bad
no jurisdiction. Belli' short of money,
1 goes home t' me father, an' he
storms lolke a cyclone. Had he not
opposed me marriage? he said. Was
I not a wilful fool who would listen
t' no reason when he wanted me t'
marry Jimmy White—who waB too
good fer 111' loikes of me? Belli' so
hard-headed, iiiaybo I cull aim mo
own llvln', he Insinuates| an' I goes
out of th' house all broken up, fer I
could see no way t' turn.'
"'Fwhy didn't ye go t' th' praste?'
sez I.
"'1 did.' sez she; 'but he had no
sympathy fer me. Hadn't I gone out
of th' Church fer a husband? I had.
An' he would do nothln'!'
" 'But surely, Maggie, ye had lots
of frinds in yer town—none more,'
sez I.
'"I thought I had,' sez she; 'but
I applied t' wan or thim fer wurrek.
Wid her nose In th' air, she turned
me down flat. She wanted nothln' t'
do wid o married woman who' had
left her mall an' was trapsein' about
th' country; she was no unkoiud that
mc heart was near bruk; I was almost givin' up iu dlspalr, whin along
comes a flapper an' gives me th' Ilrst
encouragement I'd had.
'" Cut out th' weeps!' sez she "Tis
a big world an' yer young; I'll git ye
n job'—an' she did. I've bin here
Iver since savin' me money t' go t'
America whin me turn comes.'
'"Tliat will be fonie, Maggie!' sez
I; 'an* 1 hope yer troubles are done.
'Tis many a laugh ye and yer husband will have over yer mix-up whin
ye git home.'
" 'Nothln' doing'!' sez Maggie, be-
giiiiiln' C weep harder than Iver. 'I
can niver go hime!'
" 'Fer hivin's sake! Fwhy not?" sez
I, at me wit's ind.
"'Because—Oh, Pat!' sez she. 'Ie
jist got word this mornin'! Whin I
was turned back at th' loine, I lost
track of me husband. 1 didn't know
where he was; an' he didn't know
where I was. An' now he's got a divorce from me on th' grounds of
desertion an' crualty. He claimed I
bruk his heart by absentln' meself
from his bed an' board an' niver
wunce writln' t' hlm. He'd ought t'
known all th' tolme 1 was cryln'
me eyes out trying t' foind him an'
couldn't. Oh, I'll niver be happy
agin!' sez Maggie.
"'Well, well! Poor gal!' sez I, 'Ut
looks lolke tough luck; but, at that,
there's no tellln', I've seen some
purty sick kittens come out jist foine.
Listen Maggie!' sez 1—an' fer th' nixt
half-hour I gives her a piece of mo
moind on common slnse that was rale
philosophy. Let me se? That was
over three months ago "
" 'What did the poor girl do?" asked Mrs. Farrell, greatly Interested.
"Do?" said Pat, winking one eye,
"Well, bein' judged an American citizen, an' accordin' t' th' laws of th'
country, a free woman, Maggie takes
me advice an' marries Jimmy, her
childhood swnleheart—outside of th'
Church as before—an' they're happy
ns n frog In n lady's muff."
"Pretty fust work, Patrick!" said
Mr. Morrison. "Are you sure you
didn't help speed It along?'
"I urn." snld Put. "All I did was
t' bet Jimmy u new hat ho could do
ut If he hud th' sund t' try—an' there
hangs th' hot! Ut pays somotoliuoB t'

shooting was obtainable. There were
too many houses now within the city
limits and shooting was dangerous.
Those areas of bush would make good
preserves for game birds. The Government had already instituted game
reserves. It is being realized more
and more that the game of any district is a very great asset. Alderman Embleton said he thought the
new restriction would prevent him
shooting at crows, blue jays and
hawks. It was thought, however that
some reservation could be made for
farmers within the city. The bylaw duly passed Its first and second
reading with provisions for amendments at its final reading.

JOLLY HOSTS
COURTENAY, Nov. 20.—The whlst
drive nnd dance put on by the Knights
of Pythias in Booth's Hall Wednesday
night was a really enjoyable event.
Everyone present seemed to have
conic for the purpose of getting the
most enjoyment out of the evening.
Twelve card tables were occupied
and the winning ladles were Mrs. Len
Roberts, first; Mrs. E. Kerton, second,
Mrs. Thos. Rickson consolation. The
flrst prize for gentlemen went to Mr.
Harry Bramley who tied with Mr.
Jim Hornby for flrBt place but on cutting the cards Mr. Hornby was placed
second. Mr. Leo Anderton secured
the booby prize. An abundance of
delicious refreshments were tastefully
Berved and the floor was cleared for
dancing. The best of dance music
was supplied by Mr. Cawdell who kept
the dancers tripping the light fantastic until away after midnight.
ANNUAL MEETING OF
AGRICULTURAL ASSN.
—OFFICERS ELECTED
(Continued From Page One)
small cash balance was received and
a hearty vote of thanks was tendered
Mr. H. S. Baker and those who helped
so generously on this committee. Au
account of thirty dollars due Mr. R.
U. Hurford was ordered to be paid to
htm. The chairman then announced
that election of officers for the ensuing year was next in order. Someone at the back of the hall moved that

the entire board of officers and directors be re-elected. This suggestion met with prompt opposition from
all quarters. After a good deal of
discussion and the excuses of various
nominees, Mr. A. R. England was
unanimously elected president for
the year 1924-25. On taking the
chair, Mr. England expressed his appreciation in a few well chosen words
snying that he had not Intended to
take any office when he came to the
meeting. Mr. W. J. Gunn was eleci-
tlrst vice president and Mr. W. A.
Paul second vice president Mr. E.
Felix Thomas was again elected secretary and Mr. M. B. Tribe, treasurer.
The election of twelve directors, to
include at least two ladies, resulted
as follows: Mrs. Walter Brown, Mrs.
David Bell, and Messrs R. U. Hurford,
J. W. Fllnton, John Crockett, Ben
Hughes, Wm. Duncan, W. S. Hunter,
Wm. J. Hannah, D. M. Isenor, J. W.
Stalker and H. S. Baker.
At this stage of the proceedings
the ladiles served refreshments which
were much enjoyed by ail. Mr. Duncan, In moving a hearty vote of thanks
to the Indies tor their kindness said
If the rest of the people In tho Coniox
Valley had known what was in store
for them they would not have beeu
absent. Ex-president John Crockett
was then voted a life member of the
association. In putting the motion
Mr. Duncan said that Mr. Crockett
had done much for the association, li
was partly through his efforts that
the grounds had become the property
of the society. He had made a trip
to Victoria at his own expense In the
Interest of certain agriculturalists of
the district and had spent much of
his time promoting the welfare of
the association. Mr. Hurford supported the motion with some appropriate remarks. In replying, Mr.
Crockett was very pleased to hear
such good things said about himself.
Most people didn't get such a good
send off until they were put under the
sod he said amidst laughter.
Some discussion followed concerning the raising of funds during the
coming months. It was thought that
If Mr. Baker Is given the whole hearted support of his fellow directors and
if everyone put their Bhou1 ler to the
wheel a great deal could e accomplished. It was suggest that the
government would help In ie matter
of building the much needc live stock
accommodation now that l e society
owned Its own ground. M . Hurford
pointed out that they wen in much
better state than they were two years
ago. It was agreed that the hall
was too small for the exhibition now,
but the association was in a much better position than ever before. Mr.
Paul said he remembered Mr. Edwards tackling Mr. P. P. Harrison
for a grant for the Agricultural Association at a recent public meeting
and he thought that if a committee
were appointed to draw up Borne definite statement of requirements some
thing could then be accomplished. The
president then appointed a committee
consisting of Messrs Paul, Hurford
and Duncan for the purpose of making out the statement of requirements
to place before the government.     A
"Ways and Means" committee was
also appointed. This consisted ot
Messrs Edwards, Tribe and the Secretary, who will interview Mr. Baker
with a view to arranging some kind
of entertainments during the coming
months.
