possible by the present survey every
co-operation might be expected from
the Federal body in any efforts to
rehabilitate the sole coul industry of
the province.
Party Includes tbe World's Leading
Six of the leading adminton players in England are touring Canada
for a month, commencing November 16th at Quebec, under auspices
of the Canadian Badminton Association.
Final details of the extreme western tour are not complete but at
present, the schedule calls for the
appearance of the stars in Vancouver on Wednesday and Thursday,
November 26th and 27th and in Victoria on Friday, November 28th.
They will have a day or two extra at
the coast which will in, all probability be spent in sight-seeing.
The team is due back in Edmonton
on Decemer 1, and after exhibition
games they will proceed straight to
Toronto, arriving on December 5.
. The personnel of the English team
is: Sir George A .Thomas, Bart., captain; D. C. M. Hume, all-England
singles champion for five successive
years, and without question the outstanding exponent of the game in
the world; H. S. Uber, all-England
mixed doubles champion (with his
wife); R. M, White, a young player
of great promise, and R. F. C. Nichols, the youngest player on the team
and considered to have a fine future.
Grant left Victoria for their home in
Nnnaimo, following their wedding in
Victoria in 1880,
Mr. Grant was born in Rctou, Nova Scotia, in 1854, and came in 1875
to British Columbia where he was
engaged in survey work for the Canadian Pacific Railway in the Rockies.
For some years he worked under the
late Robert Dunsmuir, near Nanaimo
and tells of his early logging experiences up the Island, when men and
oxen did the work which is now done
hy machinery.
Old Days, Good Days
I've seen good days nnd bad days",
snid Mr. Grant in recalling his experiences, "but the old days were
surely good ones. We had plenty of
everything up the Island a little
rough in spots, maybe, but everyone
was happy and contented. There
were very good stores in Nanaimo
and we all worked hard. Unemployment was unknown."
In 1898 he and a party of eight
men from Cumherland set out to try
their luck with those who rushed to
the Klondike. Of the party two still
lived in Victoria—Mr. Kenneth
Sharp and Mr, Harry McGregor
"There were hardships," lie continued, "but we were lucky; we all got
along well and were all woodsmen
who knew a thing or two of the
wilds. It took us 52 days to traverse
52 miles along the trail, and we carried eight tons of supplies for our
party. We were known as the
Grant party. I was making $20 a
day at one time up there, working in
a sawmill and experienced men were
hard to find. But by the time you
paid $5 for a meal of moose meat,
some yeast bread and a cup of black
coffee without even milk or sugar,
the wages didn't go so far. Eggs
were $18 a dozen and butter a dollar
a pound,"
Mrs. Grant was formerly Miss Mc-
Cutcheon, a native of New Brunswick, and was one of the first white
women on Denman Island. There
were fifteen children in the Grant
family, nine of whom are living to-
day. The sons are Charles Grunt of
Cumberlnnd, Dr. James Grant, Robert Albert Lawrence and Stanley;
and the daughters, Lily, Mrs. William
Hooper (Vancouver), Edna, Mrs. C.
Sears (Sidney), Jessie and Mrs. Wm.
Gropp. There are fourteen grandchildren and one great grand-daughter.
Move  to  Victoria
After living 21 years in Cumberland Mr. and Mrs. Grant und then-
family moved to Victoria, where Mr.
Grant was associated with Mr. Sam
Shore as proprietor of the old Grotto
saloon. Municipal and provincial affairs were among Mr. Grant's interests, and he was for two years alderman in Cumberland, mayor in 1902
and member for Comox in McBride
Government from 1903 to 1909. He
is a Shriiier, and a member of the
Oddfellows, Knights of Pythias and
the Orange Lodge.
At Saturday's reception there was
a family reunion and reception for
old friends of the bride und groom of
fifty years ago.
Many life-long friends and associates of pioneer days attended the reception, numerous flowers and gifts
supplement ing the congratulations
and good wishes were received by the
venerable couple from far and wide;
During thc evening Dr. James F.
Grant, son of Mr, and Mrs. Grant,
expressed the happiness of their
parents' golden wedding, and voiced
the hope that similar happy gathering would mark their diamond wedding celebration. Little Jerry Grant
a grandson then presented Mr. Grant
with a purse of gold, and little Joan
MacDonald, a great-granddaughter,
presented a similar gift to Mrs. Grant

on behalf of himself and his wife.

Opening Speaker at
Loggers' Congress
The lecture of Dean Brock which
is illuustrated with slides and
charts was very interesting, describing the present waterway, the traffic-
on it ,the proposed scheme, the cost
the relations between Canada and
the United States, the relations of
the Maritimes and Western Canada
to the project.
The traffic on the Great Lakes to
which the St. Lawrence was the natural outlet to the sea, said Dean
Brock, was tremendous. The ton-
mice passing through them was
greater than the combined tonnage
passing through the Manchester Ship
Canal from Liverpool, the Panama
Canal, the Suez Canal and the Fort
of London. It had heen said that
Ocean going ships would not use the
Waterway if it was completed. If
the large vessels used the Suez, the
Manchester Ship Canal and the Panama, why would they not use the St.
Lawrence-Great Lakes Waterway
asked the speaker. In speaking of
the agreement between Canada and
the United States, Dean Brock pointed out that the United States would
build the canal along the International line and Canada in Canadian
territory. Canadian rights would be
protected. The widening of the St.
Lawrence In one portion to 4,000
feet with a depth of ;I0 feet and developing power to the extent of four
million horse power wus one of the
greatest engineering feats of the
world and had been worked out by a

ONE ot THE I'.EST evidences ol ;i rising, up-
to-iluU' town is a well-kept park. Even if, of
necessity, it must be small it serves its purpose by showing strangers thai the citizens of the
town take pride in its appearance, Vet this park
must be well-kept else it is worse than none at
all. Authorities can see that it does not become
the loafing place for all the "gentlemen of leisure" in the village. Every town which has a
small park recognizes a good thing when they see
it and every town which does not possess a park
has still a good ihinj; coming, Cumberland's city
park is a disgrace to the city, as a park and we
doubt very much if it could ever be turned into
a park tha! would be of benefit to the city.
A few weeks ago a prominent business man.
but who is uot a resident of Cumberland, offered
to donate the sum of $20(1 towards the turfing of
the Recreation Ground here. The board of management of tin' Athletic Club appointed a committee to go further into tbe matter and to report
back to thi' board at a later dale, t'p to the
present time we have heard nothing further
about the scheme. It appears to us a real good
move, this turfing of the Recreation ground . Let
the city park remain as il is and bend our efforts
to improving the Recreatiton Ground. If this
area were turfed, all games could be played there.
The field is large enough to accommodate the
baseballers and cricketers in summer and in
winter the ground could lie used by the footballers. If the various sporting organizations in town
would co-operate wilh the Athletic Club in this
matter, one of the very best Recreation Grounds
in the Province would be Ihe result.

Questions concerning Health, addressed to the Canadian Medical
Association, 184, College St., Toronto, will be answered personally
by correspondence.
Osteomyelitis i.s an acute infection
in a bone. It is a disease which develops quickly and which is severe,
and each year, it takes a toll of lives,
chiefly  among  children.
Loss of life, or extensive injury results in these eases, because treatment is not secured without delay
for it is the delay of a day or indeed
of a few hours, in such acute coridi-
j tions as this, which leads to sorloufl
! or fatal results.
Failure to secure early treatment
is due, in most cases, to the ignor-
ance of parents or others responsible
for the care of children regarding
what happens when there is an acute
bone infection.
When a child complains of pains
in the legs or arms what usually
happens is that the parents decide
thnt the child has "growing pains"
or rheumatism. There is no such
condition us "growing pains"; children do not have pains just because
they are growing.
There is only one safe way to dent
with  pains  in  the  extremities,  and
, that is to have the child examined it) I
I order to find out definitely what Is I HEREBY GIVE NOTICE that, on Monday, the 3rd day of November, 1930, at the hour of

perhaps the worst thing they can do
is to pet the intestinal tract in motion when it should be at rest, with
a dose of castor oil.
When a child has a pain in the
stomach, a doctor is called. When
a child has a pain in his extremities
a doctor should be called just as
promptly. The condition may be
quite as serious and require treatment quite as urgently.
There is generally a history of injury which may be only slight This
injury apparently lowers the resistance of the area infeeted.and if there
are perms present in the body, they
grasp their opportunity. The germs
reach the area of lowered resistance
and there they multiply rapidly,
causing, first of all, inflammation and
the subsequent formation of pus and
the destruction of tissue. If not
properly and promptly treated, the
patient will be overwhelmed with the
poison produced.
The germs reach the area in the
blood stream. They may come from
such a point as an infected blister
on the heel, a boil, a throat infection
or, in fact, any point where they
have been lodged in the body.
The pain starts suddenly in most
eases, and is usually severe; the most
common location is near a joint of
one of the lung ones.    The spot is
tender and there is fever.   It is now
that the case should be treated. Late:
we find redness, swelling and all the
j usual signs and symptoms of inflam-
■ matlon   resulting  from  the  activity
, if living germs.
J The dangers of osteomeylitis will
[ Se overcome when parents are on the
', watch for it and when they realize
j the urgent need for considering pains
i in the extremities as conditions which
i demand attention.

pages, close-packed with concise data
regarding the geography, has just
been issued by Hon. F. P. Burden,
Minister of Lands. This publication
will prove of inestimable value us a
reference bonk. It was compiled by
the Chief Gogerapher, Major G. G.
Aitken and his staff, and in addition
to a preface giving historical, Topographical and other information—
areas of islands, lakes, drainage basins, cities, municipalities, villages,
listst of main rivers and tributaries,
data regarding parks, historis sites,
ets.—the volume contains approximately 2.1,0110 place names of geographic features. The location is
adequately- shown by district and latitude and' longitude.
The data from which this volume
has been carefully compiled is based
upon the most authoritative sources
available.    In the place names there
is the perpetuation of the memory
of thc original inhabitants—-the In-
; dians.    Tbe  intrepid  explorers  and
j fur-traders  have given   place-names
! signs to their endeavors.    Of later
I times  there are the  names  of  tlie
j patient   and  steadfast   pioneers   attached  to  geographical  features  of
I the districts with which they are associated.    In more recent times outstanding work and local citizenship
I have contributed to the naming of
i the  rivers,   mountains,  creeks,   seas
