Life Membership Diplomas
Presented to Local Doctors
St. John's Ambulance Association Held Very Successful
Whist Drive and Dance
There was a very large attendance
at the whist drive and dance held In
the Ilo-llo Hall on Thursday evening
under the auspices of the Cumberland
Local ot the St. John's Ambulance
Association. Between 300 and 400 attended, a most delightful time being
spent.
The first part ot the programme
consisted of a whist drive, a very
large number of players taking part.
The winners were Miss Gladys Dando,
first lady; Mrs. Jackson, consolation;
Mr. T. Rickson, first gentleman, and
Mr. John Lockner, consolation. The
awards were distributed by Mr. Thos.
Graham with a very humorous speech,
Lite Membership Diplomas Presented
to Doctors MacNaughton nnd Hicks.
The most Important event of the
evening was the presentation of Life
Membership diplomas in the St. John's
Ambulance Association to Dr. G. K.
MacNaughton and Dr. E. R. Hicks, in
appreciation ot their splendid services to First Aid work In Cumberland.
On behalf of the Cumberland Centre
of the Association, Mr. A. J. Taylor
called on Mr. Thomas Graham, General Superintendent of the Canadian
Collieries (Dunsmuir) Ltd. to make
the presentation.
Mr. Graham said First Aid work
wbb making good progress in the district, and this gave promise of being
a record year. A class for men with
some 20 members Is receiving instruction locally; a class for ladles with
30 members has been formed, and a
second Is now under course of formation. At Bevan on Sunday last a
class for ladles was formed, 20 ladles
taking part.
Continuing his remarks Mr. Graham
said:
"For some time past, right in our
midst, and almost unknown to most of
our residents, a few men have been
devotedly giving of their time and
their talent to the general welfare of
the community. That their efforts
have gone unnoted by so many is due
to the fact that the work is not spectacular, like our City Firemen, or like
our idols ot the athletic field; their
work is purely humanitarian; a desire and an effort to be. useful to their
fellow men. Their reward is that
they have through their knowledge of
First Aid been able to render some
service tending to ameliorate the
Buffering, possible contagion and danger of aggravation through transportation of an injured fellow workman
from the scene of his accident to his
home or to the hospital.
"That they have succeeded to a great
measure In this work and rendered
untold services to their fellow workmen, can be testified to by our physicians, Dr. MacNaughton and Dr.
Hicks.
"Not only have the members of the
St. John's Ambulance Association
worked hard to prepare themselves
for their work, but they have worked
successfully, and their success In open
competition with teams from other
districts proclaim them equal to the
best the country can produce,
"Last year the No. 4 Surface team
was second in the Coderre Cup competition, open to mining teams all over
Canada. In the Provincial meet held
here In September, they were first In
two of three competitions and second
in the third.
"ThlB Is quite an honor to the men,
who have devoted their efforts to this
work, and an honor that the community should appreciate.
"There is, however, another side to
the prominence the boys have attained. This knowledge in First Aid
work did not come to them as a mere
passing wind; they had to be taught,
and their teaching called for a great
deal of self-sacrifice in time and effort
on the part of some one.
"This community has been fortunate
in having in Doctors MacNaughton and
Hicks, medical men who realized the
benefits to be derived by the community from a well-trained corps of
men able to furnish First Aid In emergencies, and it Is to their eternal
credit that they have so unselfishly
devoted their time, knowledge and
effort to the Instruction of First Aid
in this district.
"The high place won by the St.
John's Ambulance Association of Cumberland in Provincial and Dominion
competitions, Is due entirely to the
efforts of Doctors MacNaughton and
Hicks. Year in and year out they have
freely given their best, and despite
the many professional calls on their
time, have always been found willing
to devote more and more of their time
to this humanitarian effort.
"Many will say it was their duty;
true, but it was always more than a
duty to these gentlemen; It waB a
pleasure to serve. Unheralded and
unsung, they have given their time
without hope of reward.
"Apart from those who have associated themselves with the St. John's
Ambulance Association, few in the
community realize the amount of time
our doctors have given to this work.
Occasionally the classes have remembered the doctors, and through small
tokens have shown appreciation of
their efforts.
"It affords me a great deal of
pleasure to be able to say here tonight, that the distinguished services
rendered by the doctors to this community, In particular, and humanity In
general, has been recognized for outside their home town. In recognition
of such services Grand Priory of the

long, which lie supports with his
arched body aud over which a loaded
automobile runs. He only weights 100

Splendid Success

Held in Cumberland—300
Guests Attended.
Tite annual ball of Cumberland
Masonic Lodge, No. 26, held In the
Ilo-llo Hall on Friday night last, Is
generally conceded to have been tho
best ball ever held in Cumberland.
Nearly 300 persons attended the ball,
nearly all remaining until the conclusion, about 3 a.m.; in fact, many were
reluctant to leave even then. \
The large hall had been transformed by a profuse use of Masonic
decorations on a blue background,
cleverly designed by Architect W. A.
Owen. All the pillars in the hall had
been decorated to resemble Corinthian
columns, connected by Masonica architecture, giving a very striking and
pleasing effect.
An artistic stand for the orchestra
had been erected in the centre of the
hall, the effect of which being to
greatly enhance the value of the music
for tiie benefit of the dancers.
The music supplied by the six-piece
orchestra, specially arranged by Mr.
Owen for the occasion, was a delight
indeed, ami was very largely responsible for the great success of the ball.
The players were Mrs. Ralph Frost,
piano; Mr. TV. A. Owen, violin; Mr.
Beaumont, of Nanaimo, 'cello; Mr.
Quinn, violin; Mr. Ingani. cornet, and
Mr. Flump, drum, etc.
A new feature in the distribution of
refreshments was introduced, meeting
with every satisfaction.
Much credit is due the ball committee for the happy results attained.

after the ball, and the owner can obtain it on applying to Gordon's Store.

MOTHERS WARN THEIR
DAUGHTERS AGAINST
SOWING THE WIND
One of the Sousnii's Best Pictures Is
Showing nl the Ilo-llo Theatre
Friday nnd Saturday.
"Sowing the Wind," which has Anita
Stewart as its charming star, comes
to the llo-Ilo Theatre on Friday and
Saturday. It can be classified as one
of the really good pictures of the current season, and it is of more than
tiie usual appeal since it contains all
the elements which go to make up a
modern picture of ceaseless action.
Miss Stewart, by a finished performance in her portrayal of the character
of a beautiful innocent girl whose
mother Is a "queen" of revellers in a
notorious gambling house, commands
hearty sympathy. She registers the
cliaugiiig emotions of a girl In such a
predicament with fine shading, and no
one can go away from Ihe theatre
without taking the feeling that it
makes no difference what obstacles an
evil fate may place in the way of a
human being, there can come happiness ultimately. The mo3t Interesting phase of the story hinges upon the
girl meeting the man of her heart and
her subsequent battles to have and to
hold him despite her totally unsatisfactory maternal antecedent. Another
interesting twist to the narratvc is
is her discovery of her own father,
who proves to be a very interesting
character, A splendid suspense Is
maintained until the very end of the
picture.
Strong Cast.
The cast supporting Miss Stewart
deserves special commendation. It is
far above the average. Ralph Lewis.
Myrtle Stcdmnti, James Morrison and
William V. Mong all handle Important
.■oles most acceptably. Mr. Lewis as
llrnlmzon, the father of tho unfortunate girl, gives an exceptionally fine
performance, while Miss Stedmnn as
'he wayward mother succeeds In doing her best work as an emotional
artist.
"Sowing the Wind" is a photoplay
which will thoroughly divert most
anyone. Il is even more than mere
entertainment, for It Is a veritable
tudy such as anyone enjoys digging
into witli a zeal.

A   special   Mack   Scnnett   comedy,
('Hilled "Call a Cop," will be screened

The second of the series of lectures
given under the auspices of the Cumberland Literary and Athletic Association by the University of British Columbia Extension Lectures, was delivered in the lecture hall on Saturday evening, when Professor Williams
gave a wonderful talk on the early
life on the earth, as existing In prehistoric times, millions ot years ago.
Mr. Thomas Graham Intorduced the
speaker to the meeting.
Dr. Williams illustrated his address
with numerous pictures of the fishes,
animals and birds of which he waB
speaking. Many remains of prehistoric animals had been discovered In
the Red Deer Valley, Alberta, said
the lecturer, whicli had been of great
value to science. Some of these fossil
value to science. A wonderful collection of these fossils is now mounted
at the Museum, Ottawa, as well as an
other collection In New York.
Incidentally, the speaker said that
while crossing the Gulf that afternoon, the passengers had a line view
of a school of whales, mammals which
are the descendants of animals which
had taken to the water in the long ago.
A picture of flying reptiles closely
resembled some of the dragons now
pictured by natives of the Orient.
Some of these flying reptiles had wings
twenty-five feet across.
Speaking of the ancient armed
dinosaurs, Professor Williams said the
growth of these protecting horns and
spikes was a sign of old age ot the
species, and he thought the antlers of
the deer was a suggestion of old age
of the species.
The lecture was listened to with
very keen interest and enjoyment by
the large and representative gathering, and at the conclusion a hearty
vote of thanks was accorded the
speaker for his interesting and very
learned address.
Mr. Thomas Graham, who was chairman, said he had enjoyed the lecture
very much—it was one of the best he
had listened to for many years. He
said It was remarkable the way the
scientists co-related the different
forms of life.
The citizens of Cumberland, said
Mr. Graham, were deeply indebted to
these splendid lecturers, and be hoped
for many more such addresses during
the years to come.
Mr. George O'Brien moved a hearty
vote of thanks to Professor Williams
tor his address, and to the club for
arranging the lecture.

Sutisijinir His Cuiiositr
A very inquisitive old gentleman
considerably annoyed a fellow traveler
In a railway carriage by the number
of impertinent questions he asked
concerning his business, the object of
his journey, and other matters, winding up by asking whether he had a
family. "Yes," was the reply, "I have
a wife and live children, but I have
never seen one of them."   .
For a space the old gentleman sat
back in his seat and was silent while
he tried to solve the puzzle. Presently
he turned towards the other man and
said. "Whatever do you mean? You
aay you have a wife and Ave children
and have never seen one of them.
Were you ever blind?"
"No," said the other irery calmly,
"It's like this. I've been away from
home for a week, and one of them
was born yesterday!"

As the motorist turned a corner in
"he quiet country road he saw a
brother of the wheel just ahead, evidently In trouble. Immediately he
dowed down.
"Want any help?" he asked jovially.
The other motorist looked gratefully
is him as he wiped the» perspiration
>fl his brow,
"I do," he whispered. "See that
lady in the car? She's my wife, and
\'<\ be much obliged if you'd answer
ier questions and keep her amused
ivhile 1 am seeing to this burst tire."
What Did He Mean!
Mrs. Jones bad grown a bit skeptical of Mr. Jones' affections for her.
So, one evening, she asked him:
"My dear, tell me, do you love me
for what I was or for what I am?"
"Dearest," replied her husband, "I
love you for what you will be."

Ther» Is no valid reason why thlt
organization should not expand and
grow and become the civic vanguard
or community leader. Being fully
aware that many socially-minded civic
and social workers constitute the organization, 1 venture to present & tew
suggestions, which I trust will be
taken In the spirit in which they are
given.
Since 1 came to Cumberland a dozen
years ago there has been no little Improvement made In the social lifo ol
.he community. Our streets, sidewalks, roads and street lighting have
All been extensively improved. The
■'ublic and High Schools and Bchool
Ihrary have" had additions and exten-
lions. The housing of the community
una been built up and the old part
greatly improved by the Canadian
Collieries and private individuals, as
veil as the civic authorities through
he Soldiers' Settlement plan. The
transportation and postal services have
neeu transformed, through adequate
enforcement of the sanitation laws the
lealth of the city has been mainlined, and through a wise adminla-
ralion policy our hospital Is well
equipped, managed and financed.
The development of the local industry has been fostered and developed
in a large scale. Public Interest has
ieen taken In the local fire protection,
vhich is now In better condition than
iver before. No little enthusiasm has
'jeen aroused in recreation and athletics, aud the publicity campaign ot
jur city has been engineered through
iur sporting fraternity. City beauti-
.icatlou has its nucleus In the boulevard.
These are some of the achievements
if the present Board of Trade In con-
.unction with various organizations,
.nd is sufficient to answer any critic-
,sm of the possibilities of constructive service. This record does not
warrant a secession of activity, but
-.hould act as a stimulation for further
jffort. The field has not been entirely
covered and there is still room for
expansion.
The first requisite Is the elimination
of sectional division and party spirit,
and the fusing ot the different elements into one solid body whose Interest Is the well-being of the community. This, as will be seen, will do
away with the thought-tight compartments of the merchants and public.
Confidence must be established. This
organization should not be a challenge to the public, but a guide. The
public should not look upon this body
as the arch-enemy but as their servant. I have studied this community
from all angles and I am firmly convinced that the Board ot Trade, together with public co-operation, could
make life more rational, profitable,
worthy and satisfactory to all concerned.
The many achievements In the various fields of labor above mentioned
could be pushed still further ahead.
A survey will show where Improvement could be made. New territory
could be opened up where the board's
energies could find an outlet To act
properly Is to think properly; to think
properly is the hardest task. The
universal end or purpose iu life, and
in nations, is to construct, to create,
or grow. The ways and means for
accomplishing that end are mutual
service, or co-operative action. What
is most needed is a larger experience,
more comprehensive vision and greater
tenacity of purpose. This latter quality seems conspicuous by its absence
in the group and the Individual ot this
community. x
To come back to the concrete, there
was an item In the published report
ot the last meeting of ttie Board of
Trade as to the difference In the
freight rates of Courtenay and Cumberland. Let me remind you that the
Board of Trade requested that a wharf
be built at Royston, and this request
was granted, many years ago to meet
this contingency. As far as the freight
hauling by the Canadian Collieries is
concerned, It is as insignificant as the
proverbial plate of beans. The cooperation of the Canadian Collieries In

community interest has ever been
conspicuously in evidence, and this
little matter will be no exception. As
regards those people who go to Courtenay to do their trading, do they belong to the penny-wise and pound-
foolish family? If • they computed
their time, the wear and tear and oil
and gasoline consume,, how much
have they gained—or lost?
How much cross-hauling is ther.
going on, and how many parallel
routes are there traversed by the different enterprises. The density of
population does not warrant It, the
'Xpense does not justify It and the
public treasury cannot-stand It.
The most vital point ot all is In the
ittltude the board will adopt in seek
Ing to bring about an increased regularity ot production in the local Industry. A united effort should be made
f.o secure the necessary stimulation,
it the Government Is not alive to the
iceds of protection agalast fuel oil,
t should be made to realize that tin
ither alternatives, bounties and subfiles, must be sought and granted.
To be dependent on another country
'or fuel to turn the wheels of industry
n Canada is to place our lite in their
lands. When that country Is a com-
letltor in the world's market there is
io Baying what the attitude of that
ountry will be when it comes to a
■rials. It is a foregone conclusion
hat the ethical questions will not dls-
urb their slumbers. The local nues-
ion ceaBes to be, and it at once
■ssumes national Importance.
It Is imperative that tho attention
if the government be drawn more
lo3ely to this question, and the Cum-
•erland Board of Trade is the load-
itone.

Referee Burnip Got Team's
Goat, Then They Quit
The Island League game between
Nanaimo City and Cumberland United,
at Nanaimo on Sunday last, came to
an abrupt ending when the Cumberland players left the field after playing only 27 minutes, as a protest
against the decisions of Referee Bur-
nip, who ordered Kenney, the centre
halt of the Cumberland team, to leave
the Held tor fouling Foster of Nanaimo.
Team Should Not Have Left Field.
The alleged offence was only an
ordinary occurrence even In professional games, and there waB no reason
whatever to justify Referee Burnip In
Bending Kenney to the side lines. During the progress of the game Kenney
played clean football throughout,
most of the charges for which he was
penalized being permissible, according to the rules. However, the Cumberland players should not have left
the Held, but should have played the
game out and then protested against
Referee Burnip, who undoubtedly
would have been disqualified for his
actions in Bending Kenney off the field
of play.
From a spectator's point of view,
they were the only ones who suffered,
having paid their money to see the
game.

ground was In splendid condition.
There were over 21100 spectators present when tiie teams faced each other.
Nanaimo won the toss and Cumberland had to face a strong sun. Right
from the kick-off Cumberland forced
the pace through Appleby, their centre, who seemed to be full ot dash.
Both Appleby and Harrison had tries
for goal but shot wide. After eight
minutes of play Harrison sent in a
well-timed cross; Dickinson, the Nanaimo back, faltered and Appleby
rushed in and scored a good goal far
Cumberland. Play was then very fast,
Kenney of Cumberland being very
prominent with liis splendid manner
iu tackling and his good judgment in
placing to his forwards. Hitchens being offside spoiled ■ Cumberland's
chances. The champions soon returned again, and Stewart gave away
a comer in trying to clear liis lines.
Harrison took the kick but sent tho
ball past. Nanaimo then had a turn,
and splendid football was displayed
by both teams, more especially by the
Nanaimo forwards and Cumberland
defence, Kenney and Irvine being
very prominent.
While being pressed, Mortimer
fouled Stobbart within the penally
area, and Stobbart scored with a hard
drive into the corner of the net. Thin
result seemed to make the game all
the faster, but Smith fouled Appleby
when this player was on one of his
dangerous rushes. Kenney took the
kick but kicked past. A minute Inter
Smith fouled Conti hut Campbell
kicked wide.
Magnificent Save Hit lloyil.
Two free kicks in succession were
given. Nanaimo against Kenney for
tackling Foster. This let Wylle away
on the right; after slipping Ihe ball
past Campbell, lie tried Hoyil with a
stinging drive, but tho'Cumberland
goalie cleared easily. A minute later
Stobbart sent In a good shot, when
Boyd saved the situation by bringing
off a magnificent save; he was showing great skill in goal. The game had
gone 25 minutes when Smith came in
contact with Campbell's foot, and he
had to be carried to the pavilion for
repairs.
Nanaimo still continued the pressure and Cumberland's defence was
working hard. Willie Kenney and
Foster were jumping to head the ball,
Kenney's hand went on Foster's
shoulder; llet'eree Burnip blew his
whistle and then ordered Kenney to
the touelilino. This, no doubt, was
the means of the game coming lo such
an abrupt ending, when Cumberland
left the field in protest.
The game only lasted 27 minutes,
and during that period was the llnesl
exhibition of football played on tho
Island for some time. Kenney was
very prominent and the spectators re-

Two Young Business Men of the City
Unve a Wonderful—and Weird—Exhibition of Boxing at the Monthly
ltii\lnir Carnival Last Saturday.
Damon and Pythias had nothing on
Air. Oavin and Mr. Dixon in the matter ot friendship. Mr. Cavln was quite
.vllllng to allow that Mr. Dixon was
the best tailor in town, and conversely
Mr. Dixon allowed that Mr. Cavln, as
i shoe salesman, was unexcelled. In
ill matters they were of one accord.
Mr. Cavln was quite willing to wear
clothes, manufactured by Mr. Dixon,
and the latter would even go to the
length of wearing shoes sold by the
onner. Such was their great friend-
ihlp.
One little cloud nlomi darkened the
horizon or this perfect understanding.
\s a champion of the fistic arena each
lirmly believed he conld put It all over
lis friend, Mr. Cavln casually stating
Unit what Dempsey did to Cartfentler
ivould iic merely an episode to what
he could do to Mr. Dixon. On the
other liniiil Mr. Dixon was willing to
tell the world that If the two should
ever don the mitts, the only possible
rosult would be that his very dear
friend, Mr. Cavln, would be put lo bed
witli a shovel by the genial Mr. Banks,
our efficient and energetic undertaker.
Tills little rift In the lute of perfect
friendship could only be settled In one
way. They agreed to meet in the ring,
three rounds to a llnlsh, at the next
monthly boxing carnival held at the
Miners' Hall. Accordingly on Saturday evening last, when the advertised
boxing features had come to a successful end, the audience had the additional treat of beholding these two
aspirants for fistic honors appear in
the ring.
Their very creditable performance
was much applauded. Indeed, some of
tiie fans present laughed so heartily
as to lie in need ot first aid to recover
their wind. The tight by rounds waB
as follows:
Tbe Fight By Rounds.
The opponents shook hands. Mr.
Cavln made a swipe at Mr. Dixon,
whicli would undoubtedly have landed
had Mr. Dixon not been engaged at
the moment in rearranging the bedroom slippers which he was wearing
as fighting shoes, and which he had
inadvertently put on the wrong feet.
After this they shook hands again?
Mr. Dixon led a wicked Jab for Mr.
Cavin's nose and nearly had him, missing him only by about three feet. Mr.
Cavin danced in and planted a terrific
right about a toot from Mr. Dixon's
jaw. This was followed by a clinch
which the referee tried In vain to
break, and which continued until the:
sound of the gong recalled the opponents to their corners to receive the
welcome administrations ot their
seconds.
Protests at Hough Treatment.
Round Two.—Mr. Cavin's glove
landed with a smack on Mr. Dixon's
stomach, who Immediately appealed to
the referee on a point of etiquette.
The referee allowed the blow and the
desperate fight continued. It was very
apparent that Mr. Cavln had got Mr.
Djxon's goat, for after some preliminary fox-trotting, Mr. Dixon aimed a
furious swing at Mr. Cavin, which
fortunately tor the latter landed fairly
on the referee's neck, much to his annoyance. Mr. Cavln smiled and walked
over to the ropes to shake hands with
a friend in the audience. Hostilities
were resumed. Mr. Cavln again struck
his friend, who protested energetically at such rough conduct. Mr.
Cavin apologized in a gentlemanly
manner, and promised that the mistake would not occur again.
Clinches Referee.
Round Three.—Mr. Dixon led off
with a right Bwing of such force as
to turn him around three times, only
.aving himself from a bad fall by
throwing his arms around the referee's
neck. The force of his own blow must
have in some manner dazed Mr. Dixon,
tor he clung to the referee, being evidently of the opinion that he was in a
clinch with his opponent, and It was
only after considerable half-choked
remonstrance on the part of the former that he realized his error. However, he had managed to get in a few
useful kicks on the referee's shins in
the meantime. Perhaps after all he
was not as dazed as he appeared.
In the Interval Mr. Cavln had started for his corner to take a long and
refreshing drink from his bucket and
to roll a cigarette. Returning to the
centre of the ring the contestants remembered that they hud ncglecled to
shake hands at the commencement of
the Hnnl round, apologized to each
other and remedied the omission.
Hy this time Mr. Dixon was thoroughly aroused, and friendship ceasing he made a vicious rush at Mr.
Cavln, striking like lightning with
either hand. The referee, not 'to be
caught twice, dived under the ropes to
safety.
Mr. Dixon gave a superb exhibition
of shadow boxing, desisting only
when, on opening his eyes he discovered that his opponent was sitting In
his corner and had removed his gloves,
under the mistaken impression that
ihe light was over.
Nut Aware Opponent Had Quit.
Upon the referee being coaxed back
to the ring he announced that the
bout was a draw, and trusted that he
would never again be called upon to
referee such a sanguinary battle.
Mr. Cavin and Mr. Dixon are still
friends—greater friends than ever.
There Is now no difference of opinion,
both hclng willing to allow that as a
"box-lighter" the other Is punk.

standard may be maintained, but that the standard may
continue to be as close to perfection as it Is humanly
possible to have it. Problems of speed, accuracy and

After a livley debate the bill war
passed.
At tonight's (Friday) meeting there
will be a formal debute on the subject, "Resolved that steam is mort
useful to man than electricity." Vis!
tors are welcome.
