4 Scattered Hits
On Saturday last tho Courtenay
nine, league champions of the Island,
played the first of a series of games
In the Island playoff, at Victoria on
Saturday laat against the Victoria
Capitals. The game was a close one;
the final acore being 3-2 in favor of
the Capitals, who owe their victory
to the stellar pitching and batting
Forbes. Forbes struck out sixteen
men, allowed only four scattered hits

Courtenay fanned two and allowed
nine safeties. Courtenay had less errors than Victoria, having 3 to 4

Let's all attend the game on Sunday
and help Courtenay win the Island
The following is an account of the
game appearing in the Sunday Colonist:
Featured by the effective pitching
of Norm Forbes, their star twirler,
Victoria Capitals defeated Courtenay
3-2 in the first of the three-game playoff aeries for the Vancouver Island
Baseball League championship, played at the Royal Athletic Park yesterday. Seven hundred fans sat in on
one of the finest exhibitions seen on
the local hall lot for many a day.
Forbes- turned in one of the best
games of his cairoeer, holding the
visitors to four scattered hits and
sending Bixteen back to the dugout
via the strike-out route. The local
chucker waa particularly effective in
the pinches. In the third he breezed
Robinson with the cushions loaded,
and went one better in the sixth when
he struck out two with the bases full.
McKee, who shouldered the burden
on the mound for the visitors, was
nicked for nine safeties while he
breezed two.
Vlsltorti Score First
The visitors were the first to break
into the score column when they
shoved one over In the first of the
third on a three-bagger by McKee
and an error by Moore. Capitals
came right back and went one better
than their opponents. Webster singled and went to third on a two-bagger
by Cummins. Forbes, the next man
to face McKee, crashed out a double,
scoring Webster and Cummins.
Courtenay tied the score in the
fifth when John Cummins travelled
the distance. Cummins was given a
walk to first, stole second and came
home on a hot single by Dixon.
The winning run crossed the plate
in the last of the eighth. Webster
was issued a pass, went to second on
an error ;by the chucker, reached
third on a single by Norm Forbes and
walked over the plate with the much-
needed tally when one of McKees wide
hooks hit McKenzie. John Cummins
halted the rally of the Capitals when
he caught Watcher's Ely ball and
threw out Forbes, who was making
Forbes the Hero
Capitals owe the greater share of
the fruits of victory to Norm Forbes.
Forbes, In addition to heaving bang-
up ball, drove in two runs in the third
and came in effectively In the eighth
with a single. Out of three trips to
the plate the local hurler connected
for three safeties, including a two
bagger, to lead the hitting array.

Water Sports
Held in Heavy
Rain Storm
The Weather Man at His Worst
on Sunday Last. Sports Held
Under Great Difficulties.
From eleven o'clock in the morning
until late afternoon, the rain  beat a
steady tattoo ou the roofs of the cars
parked at the lake and on the boat
housese,   sheltering   many   who   had
come from distant points to take part
In and to view the aquatic sports. It
was a regular downpour and why the
committee did not call the spoils iff
is  hard to understand.    Nobody en-
j joyed the day and we are of the opin-
j ion that had the sports been held next
| Sunday, when the sailor's will be in
j the  harbor,  a   record   crowd   would
I have  been  on  hand.    Not  only that
but it could easily have been made so
' that special events were open to mem-
| beis of the navy, thus helping to en-
j tertain the boys whilst at the coast.
However, the sports  were held, but
several events had to be called off on
account   of  insufficient   entries.    In
some of the races keen competition
developed and  those  who did brave
the elements got quite a thrill. Especially so was this noticed in tlie greasy
pole event, young Coombs eventually
managed to get to the end o fthe pole
after several attempts.

W. Bums, C. Dando, Jr., It. Goodall,

Naugliiou's majority is 661.   This Includes   the   absentee   ballots   which
did  not materially affect thc resu't.
There were quite a number of spoiled

Game  of Cricket ■ Boosted  As
Result of Games
Dean Quainton's touring cricketers
after playing all the way up the Island from Victoria arrived in umber-
land ou Friday laat and played the
sumo day in Courtenay, registering
an easy win. Saturday afternoon the
Cumberland eleven engaged the tourists when a very pleasant game ended
in a win tor Dean Quainton's team by
twenty-nine runs. Cumberland won
the toss and tor some reason or other
put the visitors in to bat first Comley
and llulkett facing the bowling of
Vernon-Jones and Goodall. Runs cane
slowly, both howlers keeping a good
length. Comley waB eventually run
out after making three and the next
two wickets railing at seventeen. Eric Quainton came to bat and partnered with Halkett carried the score
to lirty-seven before being separated,
Quainton being caught by Burns. The
feature of the visitors batting was
the nice display put up by young
Halkett who came ln first' and carried his bat through to the last wicket, being unfortunate enough to play
on. Gough and Vaughan fielded well
for Cumberland, Cough's catch Jn
the slips dismissing Bourdlllon being
a dandy. Quainton and Halkett were
the only two of the visitors to reach
double figures and Quainton should
have been caught when only six runs.
The side was eventually dismissed
Tor seventy-four runs.
After tea, Cumberland went to bat,
Dando and Gough facing the bowling
ol llulkett. and Eric Quainton. Dando was unfortunate in being caught
after making three runs, Gough batted steadily tor a top score of thirteen
being run out. Burns was the only
other player to reach double figures
making a useful eleven. After Burns
went out the wickets fell fast, the local eleven being dismissed for a total
of rorty-flve  runs.
The visitors paid Quite a compliment to the Cumberland bowlers
saying It was without doubt the best
bowling encountered In the tour.

FRIDAY, AUGUST 17, 1928.
THIS WEEK END the naval boats H.M.S. Durban, H.M.S. Despatch and H.M.C.S. Vancouver will be in the harbor at Comox. Many
arrangements have been made by the residents
of Comox and Courtenay for the entertainment
of the personnel. The City Council of Courtenay
and the Board of Trade of Courtenay have also
made elaborate preparations for the visit of the
navy. Dances, concerts, dinner parties and various other sotial functions have been arranged
But what of Cumberland? So far as we know,
not a single thing has been done to bring any of
the "hoys" into Cumberland, except it be that the
local Cricket Club invited the Durban and Despatch to a game, which will be played on Saturday. The cricketers are not a wealthy outfit by
any means and can not be expected to entertain
thi' naval team in any lavish style. But surely
the citizens of Cumberland, led by the Board of
Trade or the City Council could and should do
something for the visitors. This city has always
hail the name of being first class entertainers
anil we should not on this occasion let it be said
that we were backward in entertaining the naval
boys on this, one of their visits to the district.
It would have been an easy matter to have arranged some sort of entertainment, and we venture the remark that it is not too late yet. The
boats will be here until the 22nd. Can we not get
get together and do something and not leave it to
a financially poor outfit like the Cricket Club to
entertain them.
IT IS A MISTAKE to look upon thougnts as being
something vague and indefinite. Thoughts are
things. They have wonderful power. They do
things in addition to being things. Thought
started the universe into being. Thought keeps
the universe in being. Think you, friends, could
this wonderful organism we term the world have
come into existence, have continued in being unless there had first been thought and thought
had continued? Somewhere behind all the mystery of life and creation there is a Mind, whose
power is in thought.
We are but part of. that Universal Mind. Our
thought, likewise, is: one of the most potent forces,
perhaps the most potent force in life. Take the
question of evil; was it not William Shakespeare
who said, "There is nothing evil but thinking
makes it so" ? We refer to it here only to illustrate of thought tint to dilate upon evil and its
character and power. If Shakespeare were right,
and evil only has existence because men and wo
men have imposed an evil character and condition
upon some thing by their thinking, then thought
must have tremendous power. After all, the Bard
of Avon must have been right because the very
admission of evil postulates the existence of a
power coequal with God, which is unthinkable.
We should guard ou rthinking and train our
thinking machine, the mind, to think high
thoughts, useful thoughts, helpful thoughts. If
we but had a right conception of our minds and
what they are; if we could only realize that the
individual mind is definitely part of the Universal
Mind, that it can be brought into harmony with
the Divine, and that its wonderful powers may be
devoted to cooperating with the creative processes of the All-Father, then would life have for us
all a different antl noble meaning. We should not
waste the powers of mind which are ours, but
would reconsecrate them to the service of the
world, the development of life, and the furtherance of humanity's highest ideals. Truly thoughts
are things, to be used wisely, constructively, ser-

Question concerning Health, addressed to the Canadian Medical
Association, 184 College Street,
Toronto, will be answered. Questions as to diagnosis and treatment will not be answered.
With the knowledge that we now
possess, the cure of cancer is only
possible when the disease is recog
nized early and proper treatment
started at once.
One of the reasons for advising thnt
every person should go to his family
physician once a year for a llenllii
Examination is to provide for tlie
discovery of disease in its early stages, and so permit of treatment at n
time tor the dstcovary of the best
chance of cure. Otherwise it is let,
to the untrained lay person to decide
for himself that be Is in need of medical care.
For the particular benefit of this
latter group, It is necessary to point
out the conditions which, if they occur, should be considered as danger
signals, and should turn these per-
, sons in the direction of their family
i physician without del,ay. Everyone
1 who develops one of the danger signals is not developing cancer, but it
\ requires medical skill to decide wheth-
| er or not the symptoms which are
I present mean cancer.
] in its early stages cancer Is a local
condition, and, If it ia completelly re-
■ m ivod, there will he no recurrence.
If ii is not removed, it spreads to
other p.irts of the body and may cause
ca icer In these other parts. This in
!h i simple explanation of the need for
early proper treatment
Any lump, particularly In the fe-1
m ilc breast, any abnormal discharge,
ai d sore that does not readily heal,'
at y   wart   or   mole   that   changes   In !
■ size  are  danger signals,
Vain may not occur in  the early I
I stngos,   The person who thinks that}
] the  condition  cannot be  serious  be- j
; cause there Is no pain  1b mistaken, i
! :r.\ i, as a result ho may allow the time
for cure to slip past.
|    Medical nnd surgical knowledge, experience and skill are at the service
of the public, but they must wait until the public decide to call upon them.

Much has been said recently about re-forestation
in B.C. The present forest is the result of natural
reforestation when the human hazard was not present
to defeat nature.
Natural re-stocking of cut over lands is now going
on, as may be seen almost everywhere, and nature will
again re-establish the forests if only fire is kept out,

"It only   Baruska  would  send  us
some milk," she said, as she moved
Arndt made a sound in his throat.
"She!    Never!    And not a sign of
the mortgage interest."
Mitzi sighed.   She said: —
"If she could send some food—fowl
for instance—a goose say."
Paul! came back again—she had
been mistaken—it waa a oat crying
in the street, or another baby. She
"A goose! With a great,
brown belly!"
"Do you remember that goose, too?"
Pauli remembered. The birthday
party—she put her hand to her dress
felt the crackle of the paper under
her lingers.    She said very  low:—
"Yes—tlie first Sunday"	
"Bread and gravy!" Mitzi cried.
"You   forgot  to  say,"  Arndt  told,
"white   bread!"
"And—Carl"—whispered   Pauli.
"1 had two helpings," .Mitzi informed them, "and as for Kurt, lie stuffed
himself so that his little eyes stuck
Pauli spoke clearly, deliberately,
her eyes on her father;—
"He wasn't the only one. Think of
Mr.  Behrend."
The professor's pale face flushed.
He turned his eyes away and spoke
"I wonder what he does how tor
his all important Karlowitzer!" He I
mimicked Behrend's heavy voice;—'
"Can one dress his wife in paper?
That's what comes of. writing!' Well
we're dressing in paper now—he was
a prophet and knew it not—but he
was wrong in his reasoning—it isn't
because of writing."
"Speaking of Mr. Behrend," began
Pauli obstinately.
"No. We won't speak of him—any
further.' '
"Oh, but father"	
Mitzi intervened hastily.
"If only we had that goose now—
what part would you take professor?"
"Ah, well!   I always liked the leg."
"Never   Mitzi  scorned   him.    "The
breaat!     That's   the   delicacy—rich,
moist, tender."
"Foolishness!" Amd contradicted,
indignantly. "Nothing can compare
to a fat leg with plenty of crisp brown
skin, a little flavored by strips of
bacon roasted with tlie bird. Pauli
always forgets there are only two
legs. She thinks a goose is quadrupled. ( Pauli, my child, please remember next time."
He broke off. He had remebmer-
ed.   He added.
"It   seems   incredible—only   three
yenrs ago!"
Mitzi nodded.
"Yes, Fritz, and we spoke of reducing armaments, and we were worried aboui Carl's play; but thnt came
right! Whnt a celebration" ' * "
dinner we talked about art
ed, and got quite heated."
Arndt smoothed his, chin the un-
cared for heard.   He nodded;—
"Art! Now we talk only of food!
What a commentary! A million
years of man, ami five thousand years
of civilization. Five thousand years
to a million is as three months to a
lifetime. How much would the events
of three months change our llve3?
And we talk of civilization. It's a
big word."
Pauli took ber courage in both
hands. She held her father's eyes
with that larkspur blue gaze of hers,
that honest direct, loving look. She
confessed to him shortly: —
"Father, I've written Mr. Behrend."
For an instant he started—angry
rebellious—as an old war horse wlU
at tbe sound of a bugle. Then, he
slumped back, all the desire for battle gone out of him.   He asked even-
got up and put her arms around him,
drew his head back against her breast
He was her child, too, ns Carl wns, as
the baby was.
Her eyes were wet. She went to
the desk and got his pipe, oame and
gave it to him.
"Nice'little father! Mete's your
He took the pipe cuddled tho bowl
hard in the palm of his hand. Hound
It was, smooth, grateful to tho touch,
But it was not warm.   He said: —
"Yes, but I have no tobacco"	
"You have!" Paul! cried out, producing three cigarette stubs, as a conjurer does. The doctor left those
Three. If you'd been home you might
have had a whole one. Whnt n pity
he knows I don't smoke!"
Arndt reached for tbe little rolls,
slit the papers of tobacco nnd shook
out every last least grain of tobacco
He tilled the pipe—well, not filled, but
there was a good deal left iu the cigarettes—almost enough. And then be
lighted It. A ceremony, that. The
llrst deep draw sent smoke above hi3
head. He smiled, his face softening.
"Ah,  that's  good," he said, simply.
Pauli took up ber dishes.
"I'll take these to the kitchen." she
Mltzi   rose.
1 must go now. The place isn't
cleaned up, it was so cold I couldn't
drive myself to the work. But I'm
warmed now. I'll get at it and have
it done before Kurt comes. Thank
you, Pauli, rap on my door it you
want me."
Paul! nodded. She looked happily
at Arndt sitting there savoring bis
pipe. She carried tbe dishes into the
kitchen, singing as she went, one of
the most charming of lullabies.
"Gute Nacht!" sang Pauli; ".Mien
Muden   sei's  gebracht"—
Mitzi's bitter face relaxed. She said
"What a darling she is—and brave!
U it hadn't been for Pauli, I—oh, i
Don't know what I would have done."
She patted Arndt's hand. "And if Mr.
Behrend comes, think of the baby—ro-'
She put on ber coat. Arndt puffed
contentedly with an abashed expression on his old face, which gave him
an odly boyish  look.
"Mitzi, come here!"
She returned to him. He beckoned
her to bend nearer.
"Listen!    I wrote to Behrend!"
"Yes.    Twice."
"And   he  didn't   answer?"
"That he did not. No more than
Baruska.   He's n great scoundrel, thai

Baruska was fatter than ever. Sleek
a well-fed look upon her. Mitzi b..
comparison, looked as If her breath
would, blow her small person away.
She gasped and said incredulously;—
"Merciful  heavens  .   .   .Baruska!"
The professor, who had been staring with his eyes, echoed the name
In a tone even more unbelieving. Mitzi  added:—
"And looking—so grand!"
Baruska advanced into tbe room.
She smoothed her expensive skirts
with a aft red hand.
"Well, we've got a piano!" she announced.
.Mitzi's face hardened. She answered choked,
"Really? How—nice! I've got—a
little boy nnd I must be going.'
She went out. The door shut—a
little noisily. The professor shook
his head, smiled. Mitzi hadn't lost all
her spirit. That was in a measure a
good  thing.
Baruska beamed toward her erstwhile master.
"Ain't you going to ask me to set

He aroused himself from some sudden, deep preoccupation,

unlocked a drawer and brought back

bung ou a watcht chain which no
longer fastened a watch. He unlocked
the box. Two papers were within it
—two—in the great  locked box.
"Where's Miss Pauli?"
"Out!" said Arndt shortly. Why

"Really?    Why?"
"You can't eat pictures," Arndt told
her, quite gently.
Baruska was silent. Then she
pointed to the Winged Victory with a
thick commanding finger.
"You didn't sell thnt, I see."
"No," answered Arndt looking up to
follow ber lifted hand with his tired
saddened eyes. "No. Baruska, Victory
is still ours."
"Hm!" She turned toward him abruptly,  "Want to?"
He faltered. He felt a little sick,
revolted.    He murmured dubiously: —
"How much?" asked tbe practical
"It was—very expensive." ho told
"Expensive? I'll give you—a hundred   thousand."

"Two." agreed the professor. "But

"Done!" said Baruska. "And I'll
give you good measure."
Arndt handed tbe woman the paper.
"Take her then from Ibe table, ami
here's your mortgage."
Baruska rose and with her ambling
clumsy gait nf a dancing bear moved
toward the Victory and picked it up,
putting the statue carefully Into her
basket. Sho stroked the marble body,
whose lines flowed one Into the other

"Come on, my lady. You belong to

At the door she turned.

the door behind him. He disposed of
his hat, stick and gloves and liuug his

his eyes away from the exposure of

him  indecent.

he pal it nway carefully in his pocket

might not be broken.
Behrend watched him. In his eyes,
on his face, there was a curious mixture of expressions. Superiority, contempt, pity and almost it. seemed an
unwilling admiration. Behrend had
always liked Arndt. He had been
proud of his friend's learning. Before the war he had dismissed Arndt'a
principles and ideals as tho mere va-
porlnga of a mind much wisdom had
made a little mad . But always in his
secret heart he had been proud and
envious. Behrend was essentially
