opponents. The score in games was
105 for Cumberland and 95 for Alberni.
The fact that the locals won by 5 j I
matches and only 10 games best illustrates the closeness of the play. In
one particular case Alberni lost the
match but had one more game than
their opponents.
Tea was served on the courts in the
afternoon by the lady members of the
local club, while iced drinks were always avollable for the players who
thoroughly enjoyed them owing to the
heat of the courts. The sun beat down
upon the unprotected courts and made
them unbearably hot for the players
who were already quite warm enough
from their exertions.
After the conclusion of the scheduled matches the party retired to the
Union Hotel where a very appetizing
dinner had been prepared. During the
course of the evening several speeches
were made in which all expressed their
pleasure at this revival of friendly
inter-club games between the two
clubs. Arrangements were made for n

Why Diptheria Should Be
Year after year, diptheria takes a
toll of human Uvea. In Canada, during the year 1927, 1,010 Uvea were lost
on account of this disease. In addition, the toll entails pain and expense,
as well as more or less damage to
those who suffer and recover.
There is no disease about which we
know more than we do about diptheria. The germ which causes 11 is
known. Tlie manner of spread of the
disease is understood. It is one of
the few diseases for which a specific
cure is available, providing the remedy is used very early in the disease.
In addition to all this, we know bow
the disease may be prevented.
This means that we know that all
cases of diptheria which now occur
can be prevented.    We can say tint'
the thousand  lives  lost  In   1927  because of this disease would have been
saved  if  our  knowledge  concerning
diptheria had  been  used.    The  pre
vention of diptheria Is based upon the
plan of making each individual resistant to the disease, This means
that he is rendered immune—that
his body is given the forces with
which to overcome diptheria germs
nnd the poisons which these germs
give off when they hive gained a
foot-hold in the human body.
It is not only .possible, inn it Is
practical to secure tliis power to resist, called Immunity, through the
process of diptheria Immunization.
When diptheria toxoid Is Injected Into ilie body to produce its lighting
forces against diptheria. These fighting forces are then ready to be called upon in case the diptheria enemy
appears. Diptheria immunization is
preparedness agnlnsl the disease.
Because diptheria takes such a
large toll amongst young children,
Immunization should noi be postponed after bhe firsl  birthday.    A  wide
experience enables us to say Ihat in
children under six years of age, the
injections ilo mu cause any upset,
and most satisfactory results are obtained.
Now is the time to have your young
children Immunized in order to protect them against tliis disease. Do it

In the more southerly part of the
Province. Mr. P, ll, Freeland, Resident Mining Engineer, wtlb bead-
quarters al Drank Forks, has recommended that a tractor trail be constructed following a line as near as
possible ou the surveyed trans-provincial road, between the end of the
road now in use out of Princeton tn

In discussing the oilier activities of
the Department of Mines, Mr. McKenzle was asked for details regarding his proposals in connection with
the appointment of Mr. C. \v. Moore,
as assistant Resident Mining Engineer No. - Mineral Survey District.
He said that Mr. Moore already had
taken up bin duties, that his headquarters would be at Prince George,
hut that In the meantime, as much of
his work would in the Cariboo District, ho would be working oul of the
town Of Quesnel. Mr. Moore had been
instructed to make a thorough survey,

the   province.     He   also   would   relieve
Mr. Douglas Lay of some of his responsibilities relative to applications
for trial construction to placer properties under the "Mines Development
Act." It was Mr, McKenzle's hope
that Mr. Moore would be able to make
suggestions a n d recommendations
which would be nf material use to
those interested in the stimulations
of placer mining.
