District Hog Breeders Hear Interesting
Talk By The Dominion Swine Grader
COURTENAY, Doc. 1.—Hog breeders of the District had a most interesting day on Tuesday, when the Agricultural hall was the scene of a very
representative gathering. The morif-
ing session was well attended, and by
the afternoon the lecture ball wus
filled to capacity. The chief speaker
of the day was Mr. G, W. Foster,
Dominion Swine Grader, of Kitchener,
Ontario. Thc speaker was introduced
by Captain G. R. Bates in a few lu-ief
remarks.
Mr. Foster was accompanied by Dr.
Knight, Live stock Commissioner of
the Province, and by Mr. Arthur Morton, Provincial Sheep and Swine
Promoter, both of whom spoke briefly
during the day.
John Hull Is Best Customer
In his morning address Mr. Foster
dealt with a review of the hog miir-
kts in relation tn British Columbia.
78 pounds of -pork are consumed annually by each person In the Dominion, Canada producing from one to
one and a halt millions of bogs more
than she usob. lt was very clearly
brought out thut the export price Is
the price that controls the domestic
market. John Bull, It lias been noted,
was by far Ihe best cash customer.
and he buys strictly on a quality
basis, and it would be well for hog
men to get tiiat fact thoroughly ingrained into their minds. The long
hog produces the Wiltshire side,
known to the graders as the select
hog, and this Is Ihe animal that pays
best, as it is the anlinnl that Is wanted
by the packers, and by the British
market.
During the war. t'niiiidu exported
as many as three million hogs in tlie
year, this being the peak of the Canadian hog export trade. Since then,
Denmark, who was unable owing to
submarine warfare to export largely
to England at that period, has very
gradually regained the llritish market owing to lhe (|Uullty of her product.
It was clearly shown how Eastern
prices regulate prices further West,
both Calgary and Vancouver being
Influenced. The demands nf the packers had gone u long way to set a
standard for quality, which has benefited both the farmer and the packer.
and although the consumer pays more
for the pork, he receives a corresponding Increase 111 value.
Long Type Hog More I'rnliliilile
It had been proved that the most
economical hog to raise wns the
thrifty hog, anil the speaker could
assure Ills audience Ihat the long type
of animal wus the one that could be
finished morn profitably. There must
be something light In the system of
grading when one sees the vnst Improvements which huve been noticeable ln the shipments arriving nt the
packing plants. A premium wns now
paid for select hogs. The fat bacon
hog was not wanted.
The problems of successful wising
. and marketing of hogs seemed to be
equally divided between the farmer,
the packer and Iho Government. Tlie
Comox District was perhaps a littlo
too far away  from  the market, and

Saxophone Solos

Passes Away After
Protracted Illness
COURTENAY, Nov. 30— After a
protracted illness Kathleen, second
daughter of Mrs. G. G. McLennan, of
Courtenay, passed away on Sunday
evening. The Immediate members of
the family with whom the deepest
sympathy is felt, are the mother, two
sisters, the Misses Marguerite and
Jessie McLennan, and a young brother, Glen. The deceased has many
other relatives in tiie district, as she
was a grand-daughter of Mr. and Mrs.
Alex. Urquhart, who are old timers
here.
The funeral took place on Wednesday afternoon, the service being conducted at St. George's United Church
by the Rev. Mr. Alexander, the text
and theme of whose address would
doubtless prove of much comfort to
the bereaved. The funeral was attended by a large number of relatives
and friends from all over the district
and from outside points.
The deceased, whose passing was
most peaceful, was borne by some of
her former companions ln the persons of Messrs. Walter and Percy
Cliffe, Jack McPhee, Chas. Akcuheud,
Val. Dalby and B. Longland. Among
the other relatives attending were
Mrs. Walter McPhee, of Courtenay,
Mr. and Mrs. Alex Urquhart, also of
Courtenay, Mr. and Mrs. Akenhead of

pieces were both numerous and very
beautiful,

Sporting News
The Courtenay High School hoop
teams visited Cumberland on Friday
Inst and although they won ono gunie
they lost fwo. Tho flrst game started
at 7:30 p.m. between the 1st division
girls of each High School, and the
Courtonay girls canio out on the long
end of a 7 to 3 score.
Although it wns a fast and furious
game, it did nol give ns many thrills
as the 2nd division game between the
two schools. Thc team representing
Cumberland made a belter showing
this time, beating their opponents to
the tunc of 8 counters to 5.
Next   came   the   final   between   the
c. H. s. boys nnd the courtenay H. s.
boys. This gnme was full of thrills
nnd hair-raisers from start lo finish
Neither tenni shot very well, but wc
guess Maine Fortune favored un. ns
we came out on top of a 10-12 score.
On Ilio whole, thc games mny be compared to the Curate's eggs -they were
good In parts
Wo wish to thank thc Men's Bnil-
nilnton Club, who play in thc Band
Hull, for giving up tlielr night in

Thanks arc also extended to Mr. Mat
Stewart for rcfcreolng the games

When (he Pacific Coast Second
Division league opened locally on the
17th of October, Cumberland and
Courtenay clashed In a 1-1 draw. Last
Sunday saw the same two teanis in
action here, the game this time being
the opener of the second half of the
schedule, and it was a coincidence
that the score was again 1-1. In the
long Interval between Oct. 17th anil
Nov. 28th, the teams have met only
once, this time the result being 4-0
for Cumberland.
The match on the Recreation field
here Sunday was played In n downpour of rain thut made good football
imposiblc. and in 'addition the field
wns In that muddy state which almost
always causes the players to lose
their footing at every step and turn,
so that al the end of the mutch the
two goalkeepers were the only ones
who didn't resemble pillars of mud
Still, a fair sized and lively crowd
turned out to witness the game.
Courtenny scored lirst. Nakamura
getting in n lucky one early In the
first half, ll was a nice shot, but
I lucky for the reason that 11 should
never hnve got by Mnrshall. the left
full-back. However, the lead was
short -lived, for a few minutes Inter
Gibson evened the count by slipping
a hot ono past the Courtenay gonlie.
No further scoring ensued, the game
being very even until tlie end.
Both tennis wcre thrown out of
their usual stride by the condition oi
the field, the Cumberland defense and
attack hnving never played a poorer
game. Thc visitors' front line also

Snine can't think enough to work
up even a second-hand headache.
H la a line thing to approach the
game of life in thc right spirit. Which
means, of course, that we must look
matters square In tho face. We must
admit our errors, our sins, our ignorances, our mental Inertness, our
stupidity,
Once we are mentally willing io
admit such things, we are on the
mails that load to growth. We would
never grow unless we recognized our
weakness. Wo must search diligently
for a personal improvement. All the
grent inventions have been attained
by utilizing one improvement after
another,
The world has never yet been injured by thought process.
It is lack of thinking which has
multiplied tho evils nnd misfortunes
of the world. Humanity can never
lie hurt by men sotting their minds to
the task of thinking.
LOST HIS TITLE
One  often  sees splendid  buildings | LOCAL CHAMPION
being torn down.   Seems like a shame
to raze them.   But greater buildings
are to take their places. It Is part of t The At,,,etic club crlbbage team
the game of progress. The town will jour„eyed t0 Bevan on Wednesday
be better for It after the new ones | evening and engaged the Bevnn crib
nre up.    It is more economical In the  team In a series of games in the local
long run to tear down when a betterment is on the plans.
Scores of buildings have to come
down. But in their place will spring
beauty and greater efficiency.
Dare to tear down.
Over and over the inventor tears
down, only to rebuild along newer
lines from Ideas furnished by his
former experiences.
As we look over these characters
of ours, we are Impressed with the
need that is there for greater Improvements. We must tear down to
make way for better traits and truer
principles of conduct.
Never feel satisfied. Tbat means
stagnation.
Let ideas guide you. But keep
them fresh and new. Don't be afraid
to drop worn-out Ideas.
The real builder at heart has no
feelings when it comes to tearing
down old structures. He sees only
something bettor, something more
durable nnd useful.
But when you tear down, always
be sure Ihat you havo something bettor to put in the place of that which
you demolish. .
crlbbage league. Bevan held a slight
advantage right up until the last
game. Excitement ran high. It was
necessary for thc Athletic Club to win
this last game to tie the series. Mr.
Robt. Yates, who had for his partner
Mr. Wm. Henderson, rose nobly to
the occasion, winning the last game
by superb play—thus tlelng the series
with 6 games played, each side scoring 18 points. Bobby Brown was the
jinx of the Athletic Club team, failing
to win a single game. Refreshments
were served by tho Bevan executive,
and an eating contest staged, wherein
the champion of the district lost his
title, being beaten by a crumb. A
five-a-slde football game was also
played right In the hall, the result
being a draw, 3 goals each.
The other league game, played between Union Bay and the local Men's
Club at Union Bay, resulted in a win
for Cumborland by a score of 78 to 50
points. "D. II." raised caln because
"F. J. D." swiped his skunk, but on
closer examination it was found that
this sweet-smelling animal had been
swiped back again by "J. F." and still
remains In Union Uay.

PROMINENT NAMES IN
BREACH OF PROMISE
CASE AT COURTENAY
*,.**.
' COURTENAY.—The Trial by Jury,
staged .by the Comox Agricultural and
Industrial Association on 'Wednesday
night, was played to a full house. The
flrst case on the docket, as announced
by the clerk of the court (Mr. F. Tull.)
was a breach of promise notion, Miss
Putuelia Pompom (Miss J. .Moncrleff),
versus Mr. Clarence 'Cleinchowder
(Mr. It. Sutherland), As soon as Mr.
Justice Beenspllier U. Stalker) had
taken his seat. Die pmseeuting counsel, Mr. K. C, Twister, K. C. IMr. A.
pattlnson), called the flrst witness,
whicli was .(he plaintiff. The evidence
showed that a ..proposal marriage had
been assumed when the defendant had
given Miss Pattella Pomponi'lhe contents.of a Christinas cracker, which
were a' ring nn a verse which icnd: .
"You are sublime, Will you be mine?
Accept this ring as 1 am thine."
The counsel for tho defense, Mr.
Mabe Sharper, K. v., was played by
Mr. O. W. Stubbs and so exciting was
the examination and cross examination, and so delicate were the questions us to the trousseau! that the unfortunate witness broke down under
the strain, when her mother (Miss E.
Rossiter) came to tho rescue, threatening both lawyers. Other witnesses
to take the stand were Miss Cynthia
Silvercru'st, tlie defendant's fiancee,
(.Miss M. Sutherland), the defendant,
(Mr. II. Sutherland), Jllss Phoebe
Fountain, n innid, (Miss E; Clark),
ami Mr. Joshua Jenkins (Mr. Sydney
Williams), who it was found was absolutely Incapable of articulating but
spent some minutes in a terrible fit
of 'stuttering, touring which the judge
weut to sleep and the jury and counsel engaged In a game of cards. This
might have gone oh indefinitely, If
the clerk of the court, who was by
tliis time enjoying a funny paper, had
not laughed uproariously) waking the
judge who called for tlie next witness.
, The jury was composed of the directors of the Association.     All    parts
j were admirably performed, and it
Was obvious by the amount of laugh-
I tor that the audience spent a very
enjoyable evening. A useful amount
was added to the funds of the Association as ii result of this entertainment.

DIX CLAIMS "LET'S GET
MARRIED" A LUCKY FILM
"Let's Oet Married," coming to the
llo-Ilo Theatre Friday and Saturday
ot this week, Ib Richard Dlx's good
luck picture. At least that ls the
opinion of Dix since his erstwhile
sparring partner, "Gunboat" Smith ls
tn the cist.
"'Gunboat' Smith always brings me
luck," Dix explained. "Besides, I like
him tremendously. He's a great guy.
I fought three rounds with him ln
'Manhattan'; and ln 'The Lucky Devil'
he gave me the swellest licking you
ever saw. But outside of pictures,
I've boxed with him hundreds ot
times. 'Gunboat's' given me the hardest slugging* I've ever had aiid made
me like them. If I might say, modestly however, I've placed a few swats
on his noble chin that he probably
remembers,"
"Let's Get Married" ls one feature
of a double programme at the Ilo-llo
tonight, the other being "The Fighting
Heart," with George O'Brien.
IS BEWILDERED BY
WAYS OF BIG CITY
JACK HERRICK IS
REAL BEAU SRUMMEL
Jack Herrlck, who appeared aa the
Bristol Bully with Tom Mix In "Dick
Turpln" and whose facial pattern-
aided and abetted by one Jack Dempsey—has placed blm In competition
with Bull Montana as the world's
least handsome man, bas bloomed
forth as the re-incarnatlon of Beau
Brummel.
Herrlck plays tn the John Ford picture, "The Fighting Heart," with
George O'Brien, which opens at the
ilo-llo Friday and Saturday of this
week as one feature of a double programme. One scene ls laid In a
Broadway cafe with expensively
gowned women, and men ln evening
dress. Herrlck, who plays a prize
lighter, made his entrance, spic and
span ln a new tuxedo. He pirouetted to give the boys a .good look. He
had conceived the Idea of a pinch-
backed tuxedo. "Trump that one it
you can," challenged Jack. But'there
were no more trumps left.
FAMOUS Aftf ISTS IN
"PARK At MIDNIGHT'
Several screen artists 61 exception,
til ability' and popularity appear In
the' principal roles of Frances Marlon's new Metropolitan picture production, "Paris at Midnight," which
4111 be on view at the Ilo-llo Monday,
Dec, 6th, and al the Gaiety Theatre
the following eVenlng.
Jetta GoUdal, who triumphed In
"The Road to Yesterday" and "Three
Faces East," was borrowed from DeMille tb portray the leading feminine
role. Lionel Barrymore has one ot
the most Interesting roles ln the; production, that of a French criminal
who proves himself a good samarltan.
Mary Brian, Who served In "Peter
Pan." was secured from the Famous
Players-Lasky and appears opposite
Edmund Burn's,' who recently appeared In "The Million Dollar Handicap."
ANITA STEWART IS .
PRETTY TEACHER IN
"RUSTLING FOR CUPID"
Anita Stewart takes the big leap into Fox Films, when she appears at
the Gaiety Theatre next Wednesday
and Thursday, December 8 and 9, In
"Rustling tor Cupid." tt is a lump
from a south sea Isle to a little New
Mexico village.
"Never the Twain Shall Meet" was
Miss Stewart's last picture, showing
her as a child of the tropics, the center of a little world apart trom civilisation, while "Rustling for Cupid"
pictures her as Sybil Hamilton, a very
beautiful school teacher, among a lot
of cattle barons, cowboys and herds
of steers.
George O'Brien has the masculine
lead and Is cast as Brad Blatchtord,
son of the Swastika ranch's owner.
The play Is a wonderful balance between drama and comedy woven together with fine character drawing
and closely connected situations. It
Is from the pen ot Peter B. Kyne.
"The Wilderness Woman," the new
Robert Kane production for First
National, coming to the Ilo-llo theatre
Wednesday and Thursday, Dec. 8 and
9, tells the story of an Alaskan miner
and his daughter who, having suddenly struck It tremendously rich in
the far north, set out for New York.
The adventures that befell them In
contact with the conventions and restrictions of modern civilization, are
productive of the comedy.
Arthur Stringer wrote the story for
the Saturday Evening Post, where it
appeared as a serial.
In the roles of thc rich miner and
his daughter Chester Conklln and
Alleen Pringle appear to attractive
advantage. This ls Miss Pringle's flrst
comedy part and she is a ilifferent
actress from what she has been in
the Elinor Glyn and vampire roles
that have been hers heretofore. Mr.
Lowell Sherman, usually the villain,
appears this time as hero. Others in
the cast are Henry Vibart and Robert
Cain and a cute and amusing bear
cub.
"THE LIVE WIRE"
IS EPIC OF CIRCUS
Remember your "kid days" when
the circus was such a big event in
your life that you would even make
the sacrifice ot washing your face for
the privilege of seeing the big show?
The circus possses an irrestlble
fascination to everyone, and wc are
Inclined to doubt whether the kids
enjoy It any more than the grownups. The circus wields a lure that
does not wane with the passing of the
years.
Which explains, in a measure, the
great success achieved by "The Live
Wire," a Klrst National picture starring Johnny Hlnes, at the Gaiety next
Monday, Dec. 6th, and at tbe Ilo-llo
the following night. The star is ln
himself sufficient to fill any theatre.
for his poularlty as a comedian is
world-wide, but so many of the scenes
are laid in a' circus tent that there is
added pleasure In seeing this whirlwind comedy.
In addition to the fun, there are
spectacular thrills which make the
spectator gasp, including one In which
Hines slides down a sixty-five foot
tight wire to the plaudits of the big
crowd.
When the movie Industry was a
mere Infant, and Norma Talmadge
and Constance were school girls imitating the flrBt picture players, Florence Turner was the one Norma chose
most often to Imitate. Miss Turner
was the first star of the motion pictures, and J. Stuart Blackton her
director In Vitagraph pictures.
Now, after many years of popularity, and a temporary retirement from
tbe acting end of pictures, Miss Turner returns to the screen ln "The
Glided Highway," the J. Stuart Black-
ton production for Warner Bros., at
the Ilo-llo Theatre next Friday and
Saturday, December 10 aud 11, being
one of a double programme, thc other
feature being "Rustling for Cupid."
SCREEN STAR IS BUILDER
Famous screen stars have hobbles
as widely varied as night and day,
but Corlnne Griffith, who will delight
film lovers at the Gaiety next Friday
and Saturday, Dec. 10-11, with her
splendid picturization of "Into Her
Kingdom," has just Indulged in a new
one—a constructive hobby. And, as
she told an enquiring reporter recently, she ls "more proud of the structure that bears the name "Griffith
Building" than anything outside my
home." Miss Griffith's structure ia a
three-storey ofllce building located In
Beverly Hills, California. Her tenants came to her. No solicitation was
necessary, and the doctors and lawyers and florists who occupy Ihe various offices and stores admit that their
"landlady la extremely charming."
Miss Griffith is now building several
bungalows in Hollywood and Beverly
Hills.

Breeders, from p. 1
shipments in carload lots was there-
tore strongly advocated. To facilitate
this, he advised having the sows farrow at about the same time.
The Importance of grading hogs
was compared with the British Columbia apples, which the speaker had
seen ln Hamilton outselling and out-
looking the Ontario apples. It was
clearly shown that light and heavy
hogs were not economical.
An outstanding feature of thc address was that 120.000 hogs are Imported Into British Columbia annually, valued at $400,000, showing clearly
that there is a large domestic market
available for quality hogs awaiting
the B. C. grower, before lie need turn
his attention to exporting.
The speaker's remarks on conditions
of hog-ralsing In Denmark were most
Interesting.     In   that   country   co
operation is down to a fine art—It Ib
a case of Denmark first and not the
farmer, Denmark shipments. being 76
per cent selects against Canada's 22
per cent.
The speaker, who is grading some
2000 hogs a week, told how the work
of grading ln the Dominion has improved the quality of the hogs marketed. Three shipping stations, Breslau, Gait and Branchton, have, in 3
years, increased their output of the
select type from 5 to over 40 per cent.
The conditions here were the same as.
in the East when grading was commenced, and so long as the long,
rangy type of hog was raised the
farmer would be feeding the most
profitable animal.
Breeding and feeding were shown
to be very closely related, and the
responsibility of breeders of purebred stock was strongly emphasized.
A sharp distinction was pointed out
between the growing and the finishing
stage. Alfalfa and cheap by-products
with a minimum of meal ration, with
a view to cheapening the cost of pork
production was discussed, and the
Importance of avoiding over-heating
foods, such as too much corn or barley, during the growing period was
pointed out.
The selection of foundation stock
was considered In detail. The speaker encouraged questions at any point
of his address, and many good ones
were asked, to all of which Interesting replies were given.
__ Afternoon Session
In the afternoon the care of brood
sows and litters was discussed. There
were two distinct types of hog, the
bacon type and lard type. The bacon
type was the profitable animal, as It
is the hog that is required by the
packers and consumers. As far as
breeds were concerned, it was clearly
shown that the Yorkshire produces
the largest number of select hogs.
The growers, however, were recommended to select which they preferred In this respect, as by so doing
they would be more likely to succeed.
They were advised to study market
requirements, remembering that we
export one and one-quarter million
hogs yearly. It had been proved tbat
the raising of live stock has bad to
conform to the requirements of the
market. Whatever breed was selected, the farmers were strongly recommended to secure the bacon type of
that breed.
Following Mr. Foster's address, he
gave a practical demonstration ln the
stock pens of the Ideal bacon type of
both sow and boar. Tbe pure-bred
animals were kindly loaned by Mr.
H. O. Cobn, of Merville, and Mr. Arthur Smith, of Courtenay.
The attendance throughout the day
was very good, and a meeting was
held at the home of Mr. J. C. Pringle,
at Sandwick, in the evening.
Boys and Girls Pig Clubs Explained
Mr. Arthur Morton explained the
BoyB and Girls Pig Clubs, with the
object-of raising a good type of bacon
hog. There Is little doubt that clubs
will be organized in this 'district for
entries at the next Fall Fair, as very
good prizes are available for these
classes.
The speakers were accorded a very
hearty vote of thanks before the close
of the meeting.

Quebec—The Canadian Pacific
Railway has decided to add three
hundred rooms to its famous hostelry, the Chateau Frontennc, and
to meet the requirements has taken
options on a number of properties
near the present buildings. Through
the constriV.ion of the proposed new
wing the Chateau Frontenac will
probably become the largest hotel
in the British Empire, having some
1,200 rooms.
Christmas travel from Canada to
the Old Country is expected to be
exceedingly heavy this year ovcr
the C.P.R. lines and by the Canadian Pacific liners. High wheat
prices and good crops are given as
the causes for this exodus. The
rush will be inaugurated virtually
by the sailing of the C.P.R. liner
Montroyal on December 7, for which
a special train will be run to ship
aide at Saint John.
Recognized throughout the West
as two of the outstanding authorities on mountain transportation,
James and William A, Brewster,
president and general manager respectively of the Brewster Transportation Company, visited Canadian Pacific headquarters in Montreal and in an interview for the
press predicted great popularity for
Banff, Lake Louise and other points
in the Rockies. Americans, they
stated, were regarding these centres as some of the outstanding holiday resorts in existence.
