HUNTERS HAD VERY
ENJOYABLE TRIP
Gordon Cavin and "Jerry" Antapas,
who were out hunting for a couple of
weeks in the Campbell River district,
returned home last week-end, after a
very pleasant and successful outing,
hunting and Ashing being their main
object. They secured good bags of
deer and blue grouse.
During their peregrinations they
came across a lake in which the fish
were Jumping "to beat four of a kind."
Seeing an old boat on the shore they
decided to borrow it without asking
permission, no one being in the vicinity, anyhow. Just os they were making a get-away, however, using a stick
to propel it, being minus of oars, a
genteman, evidently tresh from the
Old Country, appeared on the scene
and questioned their right to use the
craft, of which he claimed the sole
right to use the "bally boat, dontcher-
know!" And off he trecks to produce
the lady who owned the boat to prove
his contention. In the meantime tbe
llshermen managed to land a few
beauties.
By way of diversion, "Jerry" managed to lose tbe trail one night while
hunting and perforce had to remain
in the forest all night, ln a heavy
rain, with his raincoat for a covering.

Service on E. & N. Line.
After several months' vacation the
Cumberland Board of Trade Is showing welcome symptoms of a return to
activity. A meeting has been called
for Tuesday night next at 8 o'clock
in tbe Council Chambers.
The most important matter to be
dealt with at this meeting is the proposal of the E. & N. Railway Co. to
run a tri-weekly train service during
the winter months. It is hoped every

attend tills meeting.

General Superintendent of the E. &
N. Railway at Victoria, in reference-
to the reduced service, tbe following

"A. MacKinnon,
"President Board of Trade,
"Cumberland, B. C.
"Your wire 2Sth. No definite date
fixed for reduction ln daily train service. Question of continuance will depend upon amount of travel. Last
year with daily service we handled
iess passengers than year before with
(ri-weekly service, and am Borry to
say that prospects unfortunately do
not look anything like as favorable as
last winter. , This matter will have
our best consideration, but every prospect service will have to be reduced
later in season, unless travel Improves.
"H. E. BEASLEY."
Another telegram received by Mr.
Walton from the secretary of the Victoria Board of Trade said it was not

Both teams have been down to hard
(raining the last ten days and all

strenuous game as this is likely to be.
Keen rivalry exists between the two
teams already and quite an exciting
game Is anticipated.
Bill Walker declares there is no
one amongst the champions'of B. C.
who can put the ball past him tor a
legitimate goal. Jock Clark, the captain of the champions, is like Tom
Brown's parrot, "thinks a lot and says
uowt." One thing he did say when
spoken to about Big Bill's ability to
stop tlie champions, was "Wait and
See!"
The teams will line up as follows:
BILL WALKER'S TEAM—Goal, W.
Walker; backs, Stewart and Gough;
half-backs, McWhirter, Carle and
Hunden; forwards, Bannerman, Kerr,
James, Sutherland and Harrison.

Irvine, Conti and O'Donnell; forwards, Milligan, Brewster, Pilling.
Hitchens, Plump. Reserves, Scott and
McWhirter.
Impression* of the Big Game en San-
day Afternoon.
BILL WALKER: "If I could pick
four teams to win on the Winning
Post Coupon last week, I can pick one
team to win this weok-end—and that's
not the B. C. champions!"
GEORDIE CARLE: "We'll make the
champions step ail the way, aud given
an even break, I look for a draw at
SAMMY GOUGH: "Why, sure we
can beat the champions; they are not
the only people who cau play football!"
JOCK CAMPBELL: "Just wait and
see, mon."
MILLIGAN: "I haven't shot a goal
for a few months now—but I am going to have a good try on Sunday."
CHARLIE HITCHENS: "The easiest team we ever tackled."
MANAGER    BOB    BROWN:    "Bill
Walker is a good footballer all right,

the list, may vote by declaring on
election day they are entitled to vote
and at the same time have a voter,
resident in the same poll, whose name
is on the list, swear or declare to the
qualifications of the applicant.
"Once the writs are issued, lists will'
be revised in every polling division In
Canada," Mr. Smith says, "and the
basis of these lists will be the provincial lists, as used in provincial elections any time within the past two
years, except in such provinces where
since the provincial elections, new
lists have been prepared by sheritt's
or municipal or other ollicials for, or
as a basis of, provincial lists. To any
such provincial lists will be added the
names of persons now qualified and
the names of non-qualilied persons
may be struck off. In provinces where
there are no provincial lists, as pointed out, then the lists are to be wholly
prepared for the present elections.
Notices wlll be posted In al] the polling divisions, rural and urban, setting
forth the days given to the revision of
the lists."
The rural registrar wlll furnish a
typewritten or handwritten copy of
his or her preliminary list fifteen days
before polling to each candidate, and
a copy of the additions not later than
6 o'clock on the morning of the polling. The rural lists will not be
printed as they are really open until
the polls close on election day. In
cities, towns and villages of more than
2500 population the revising officer,
who is the county or district judge,
shall provide for the printing ot the
lists and deliver copies to the candidates at least four days before polling.
In this regard Mr. Smith says it is
well to remember that in urban municipalities names are added only by application In person, while in rural divisions the registrar add of Ills
or her own accord, and also wlll add
unifies submitted to him if he or she
is satisfied they are entitled to be
added. Provision also is made for a
duly qualified person to get his or
her name on before the deputy returning officer on election day and to vote.
There Is no such provision in cities,
towns and villages of more than 2500
population. In these, If a person's
name Is not on tho list before election day, he or she cannot vote.

FINGER TIPS
A French doctor with plenty of time
on his hands has been specializing in
linger nails. He says you can determine the general condition of your
health by the appearance of your
nails.
If there are white markings on them
you liver Is out of working order, and
if they are of a bluish tinge, your circulation ls below par.
Having proved that the nails are
connected with health, why not go a
step farther and prove that they are
connected with character?
Heading nails might be made as
popular as reading palms. It would
be a delightful parlor diversion, und
quite as legitimate as palmistry as an
excuse for handholding!
Here are some pointers from a linger tipster:
If the nails are square, you arc of a
determined disposition witli n tendency to stubbornness. ,
It the nails are a complete oval,
you are of a wide-open disposition,
and generous to a fault. You will
make many friends, nnd If your collar
ls as wide-open ns your disposition,
you will lie able to keep them.
If your nails are rough!, your future
will he filled with hard work—and
the chances are that your past has
been also. But you will triumph in
the end, just as all rough-workers do.
If your nails are slightly pointed,
you are fastidious and averse to doing
housework and bricklaying.
If the nails are extremely pointed,
It looks very much as If your past has
a Chinese Influence.
If there is a half-moon at tlie base
of the nail, you are of a romantic disposition and enjoy sitting in the park
in the evening.
If the nail is highly polished you
have just paid fifty cents for a manicure!
WHEN TIIE PAPER IIOESNT COME
My father says the paper he reads
ain't put up right;
Ho finds a lot of faults, he does, per-
usin' it all night.
He says there ain't a single thing in
it worth while to read,
And it doesn't print the kind of stuff
the people need.
I"e tosses it aside and says it's strictly
on the bum—
But you ought to hear him holler when
the paper doesn't come.
He reads attout the weddin's and he
snorts like all get out,
He reads the social doln's with a most
derisive shout;
He says that they make papers for the
womenfolk alone.
He'll read about the parties, and he'll
fume, and fret and groan;
He says of information it doesn't have
a crumb—
But you ought to hear him holler when
the paper doesn't come.
He's always first to grab it and he
reads tt plumb clean through,
He doesn't miss an Item or a want ad.
—that ls true. ,
lie says "They don't know what we
want—the dum newspaper guys,
I'm goln' to take a day sometime an'
go an' put 'em wise;
■Sometimes  It seems as though they
must be deaf and blind and dumb,"
Hut you ought to hear him holler when
the paper doesn't come.

A Red Cross Appeal for Peace
This Appeal is Sent Throughout the World by the Joint Commission of the International Committee of the Red Cross and
League of Red Cross Societies at Geneva, in an Endeavor to
Arouse Sentiment for Universal Peace and Concord.
The following communication from Geneva is sent to all nations
of the world by the Joint Commission of the International Red
Cross at Geneva, following out instructions of the Red Cross Conference which met in April of this year. It is an earnest appeal
to all peoples of every clime to combat the spirit of war which
dominates the world and promote_peace.

To get the beat out of education and
health, you should begin with your
grandmother and grandfather. It ls
always a little difficult to go back and
change tbe habits of the old folks, but I
you might start with your own grandchildren's grandparents: tbat ls one
set of ancestors you can control. Why
not begin right now?
Heredity ls an Important factor in
Ilio development of tho body—every
purl of tho body.
The tendency is for a perfectly
healthy organism to reproduce a perfectly healthy organism. If you start
out right, you have a good chance to
travel along without much of a struggle for health. If your race has
allowed itself to go to pieces, you will
reap the punishment.
It is your duty so to care for yourself that your children and grandchildren will not have constitutional
weaknesses that will nialre them susceptible to every infection that comes
along.
If you allow your teeth to decay
and allow the pulps to become exposed
and die. you will start a line of systematic infection that is liable to un-.
deriniue* your health—not only your
health but the health of those who
should look back to you with pride as
the one who transmitted rugged health
and keen mind.      .
Do you wish your descendants to
apologize for you as the weak link ln
their chain of ancestry? If you do
not take care of every element of your
health that Is just what they will
have to do.
Your mouth and your teeth are very
Important elements In your health.
Many of the factors of health are
beyond your control, but tho mouth ls
so open to Inspection and so responsive to treatment und care that at
least 90 per cent, of mouth diseases
are somebody's fault.
Think of the future and take care
of yourself.

lie found It filled a long-felt need,
lis excellence surprised him,
and of principles above the level of
human passions, the helping hand of
the Red Cross waB stretched for to all
victims throughout the ordeal of the
Great War.
Today, tiie Red Cross owes It to Itself and to all Its many workers to
proclaim us an ideal and a practical
intention, a struggle against the horrors of war, an attempt by world-wide
help and unselfishness definitely to
abolish war.
The mere continuation of Red Cross
activity in time of peace wlll no longer
suffice. It Is the wish of the Red Cross
to work lu the interest of peace.
Therefore, the Red Cross calls upon
all whole-hearted citizens, Irrespective
of nationality, religious belief, profession, or social rank, to join as far as
lies in their power ln a systematic
campaign against that spirit of war
which Is a constant menace to tbe
world's peace.
During live years, millions of men
were killed or mutilated. Today,
thousands of ex-soldiers or prisoners
at last set tree bear indelible marks ot
bodily and mental suffering. All of
them believed tbe generations to come
would reap the fruits of the great ordeal iu a new international life, which
would be more brotherly, franker and
more full.
Sinister Influences tor War.
Instead, discord and uncertainty,
distrust and greed, hatred and the
threat of fresh quarrels are reappearing throughout the world. The
spirit of war, unconquered, reigns
supreme. Its sinister influence ls
evudent. It inspires lines of policy
and press campaigns, which lead public opinion astray aud embitters the
economic competition among nations.
During the terrible years of the recent war, superhuman efforts were
required of the different nationsr In
order to insplrt such sacrifices, a
supreme reward was promised—
namely, the annihilation of this same
spirit of war, which is a peril as old
as the world and a constant menace
to mankind.
Thus generations yet unborn would
have been delivered from the scourge
at the price of the sufferings which
the war entailed. This hoile sustained
nations and armies.
Have they hoped in vain?
I    Have millions ot human lives and
the wealth of nations been sacrificed
in vain?
Faced with these questions, the Red
Cross recognized a duty.
At the suggestion of Senator Ciraolo,
chairman of the Italian Red Cross, the
tenth International Red Cross Conference, which met at Geneva on April
1, 1921, voted the following resolution:
"The International Committee
of the Red Cross and' the League
of Red Cross Societies shall address an appeal to all nations, exhorting them to combat the spirit
of war, which dominates the
world."
These two organizations therefore
call ou nations and individuals to
light with all means ln their power
this maleficent spirit. May statesmen, writers, school and university,
capital and labor memember that it is
their duty, in the interest of mankind,
to help peace to conquer the earth.
Above all, children should be brought
up in this fundamental belief.
It Is essential that the human mind
should once more be open to the
broad lines of an internationalism,
which, while allowing the citizen to
love his town and the patriot bis
country, teaches all men to respect
the existence and the rights of their
.'ellows, by bringing into the daily
life the Individual light of a justice,
which Is to be In all the world for all
ihe time.
The Power of Invldlual Conviction.
This true internationalism cannot
'•e attained without the active and lu
timate co-operation of governments,
parliaments, voluntary organizations,
the press, the clergy, aud above all,
national Red Cross Societies. To the
union of these forces must be added a
supreme factor: the power of Indl
vidua! conviction. Every man, as far
as lies in his power, must contribute
to make peace permanent In the world.
The Individual must no longer see
the world in the light of bis own selfishness, anger, tear and human passion, hut In a spirit of concord and
mutual aid.
Thus only can a better future be
prepared.
Faithful to the Ideal which Inspired
its founders, and wliieh it has ever
served, the Red Cross hereby declares
before the whole world, that Its work
does not end with war. The Red
Cross appeals to the heart of all mankind, that each individual may find in
himself the needful strength and
determination to make and keep universal peace.
For the Joint Council—
GUSTAVE ADOR,
President of the International
Committee of the Red Cross.

OUR NEW JAPANESE ELECTORS
Many citizens will receive with alarm the news that
provision lias been made by the Dominion Government to
enable the Japanese veterans In this province to vote in
the forthcoming general election. It Is another evidence
of the inability of Ottawa to understand British Columbian
opinion on the growing menace of Oriental penetration;
It Is an indictment against our B. C. representatives in the
last Parliament that tbey fulled to advise the government
of the state of Pacific Coast opinion on that matter.
It Is all the greater affront to British Columbia, because
the whole matter has been felt out in tlie Provincial
Legislature two years ago. On that occasion the entire
Conservative Opposition, aided by members on thc Government side of the House and by Veterans' Associations
on the outside, raised so great a storm of protest that the
Japanese themselves requested permission to withdraw
their request for the franchise.
Tributes have been paid in sincere terms to tlie gallantry
and devotion of the Japanese soldiers who served in the
British Columbia battalions. Twenty-live per cent, of their
number paid tlie supreme sacrifice; scarcely a survivor
returned unscathed. The memorial In Stanley Park to the
fallen Japanese soldiers marks a real sympathy and admiration which British Columbians feel.
But the efforts of the Canadian Japanese Association to
exploit the war sacrifices of their enlisted brothers by
making it part of their published demand for the political
franchise does not meet With a welcome response. The
enlistment of the Japanese from British Columbia to serve
overseas does not alter tlie fact that as a race they are not
permitted to divest themselves ot their prior allegiance
tn Japan, and are not, therefore, capable of becoming true
citizens of Canada in the fullest sense.
The series of investigations Into the Oriental situation,
written by Mr. J. S. Cowper, which have been a recent
feature of The World's news columns, has shown from the
Civil Code of Japan and from the statements of Japanese
authorities, the inability of tlie Canadian Japanese, or even
of their Canadian-born children, to divest themselves of
their Japanese fealty. With tlie rapidly multiplying numbers of the Japanese hi this province—one birth in every
thirteen this year is that of a Japanese—the dangers of
their admission to the franchise are plainly apparent.
Two years ago the inclusion of tlie Japanese veterans as
Speaking of those anti-cigarette laws in force in Utah,
Kansas and maybe other states, one need not go out of
this state, says a Washington publication, to realize the
futility of such laws—their absolute harmfulness in breeding a contempt for law that Is unwholesome.
Twenty or twenty-live years ago the state of Washington
hod an anti-cigarette law. It meant such and such a line
for any tobacconist to sell cigarettes to anyone. The law
was enforced for possibly half an hour. Then as each
dealer found the other fellow was selling cigarettes he
restored his own stock.
The cigarettes were kept under the front counter. All
you had to do was to go into a cigar store and rap once
on the counter and the intelligent dealer would put out the
cigarettes. It was done openly, tlie law fell Into disrepute,
no one thought of enforcing it and soon It was repealed.
This country Is not ready for anti-tobacco laws; there Is
no excuse for them; they cannot be enforced and the only
reason for them is that a lot of thc paid reformers, having
accomplished prohibition legislation—not prohibition-
would rather stay on the payroll with some other reform
than go to work.
OPPORTUNITIES FOR YOUNG PEOPLE
Strength of wlll Is what the young men and young
women of Canada need. Ours is the greatest country on
earth. It offers the greatest inducements. It Is just on
the eve of an age of growth, like which the world has
never known. Rapid as was the progress ot the United
States, the progress of Canada will be swifter.
Do our young men and young women appreciate the
opportunities that are theirs? Do they grasp the situa
tlon? Are they preparing themselves to take up the
responsibilities that this remarkable age thrusts upon
them—responsibilities tliat demand strength of Character,
of Will, of Thought, of Concentration. As they strong
enough?   Are they brave enough?—Okanagan Commoner.
Exchangelets
Women's rights have not been established llrmly. A San
Francisco woman lias been arrested for smoking a cigar
on the street.
The survival of thc fittest certainly applies to those who
refrain from tlie use ot bootleg liquor.

Meeting Provincial Needs
The great Increase ln the number of telephone stations In tills
province means that tlie telephone subscriber ls able to reach
many more people by wire, and consequently his service Is of
greater value. During the past year or two, expansion has been
marked in all parts of Vancouver Island and the Lower Mainland, but adequate facilities have been installed, both In regard
to outside plant and Inside equipment, to meet tlie needs of the
various communities. The object of the company Is to give a
telephone service second to none. Tlie B. C. Telephone Company, being a British Columbia concern all through, has a real
interest In provincial progress, and every effort Is made not only
to meet the needs of development but to anticipate them.

CUMBERLAND JUNIORS
WON INTERESTING GAME
Scored Three Goals Against the
High School Team's Two on
Saturday Afternoon.
Cumberland   Juniors   won   the first
game from the High School boys in
the Cumberland Junior League for the
Canadian Collieries' cup by 3 goals to
on Saturday last.
The game was played on the Recreation Grounds before a fairly large
crowd aud splendid football weather.
Both teams played a fast and exciting game, of great Interest to the onlookers. The following was the lineup of tlie two teams:
CUMBERLAND JUNIORS — BOffy,
H. Strachan, Walker, Lockhart, Mit-
hell, Farmer. E. Stevenson, Robertson, Bond, Stewart, Freloni (capt.).
HIGH SCHOOL JUNIORS—Four-
acre, H. Stewart, Reid, Ramsell, Wllcock, W. Jones, Watson, Hood.
Referee, Jas. L. Brown of Bevan.
Linesmen, Pat. O'Donnell and Jock
Irvine.
The High School won the toss and
the Cumberland boys had to face a
strong sun ln the first halt. Bond set
the ball a-rolllng right on the advertised time, 4.15 p.m. Ramsell intercepted and banged the ball to the
other goal, but Boffy had no difficulty
in clearing. The play started off at a
very fast clip, the ball travelling from
end to end, and both goalkeepers were
called on to handle some hard shots
in the first few minutes of the game.
The High School boys were first to
score. Hood, the outside left, received a pass from Watson and he
beat Lockhart and Strachan, and then
Boffy, with a fine shot, the latter having no chance whatever to save.
The game was very exciting at this
stage, the Cumberland Jun(ors setting
the pace. Several times their forwards missed golden opportunities to
score, being too anxious In front of
goal. However, after half an hour's
play; Robertson, when about 15 yards
out, kicked the ball over the heads of
the High School boys' backs and goalkeeper, scoring the equalizer. Both
teams tried hard to Increase their
score, the High School forwards playing better combination than their opponents, and results came their way.
All of the High School forwards had
a try at goal, but could not get the
bail into the net. Most of the Cumberland defence were lined up In front
of the goal. Jones had a try, but
Walker stopped the ball with his
hands, and Referee Brown awarded a
penalty kick. Ramsell took the kick
and scored a good goal, making them
two goals to one when halt time was
called.
Second Period Started witb s Bang.
The second halt started just as
lively as the first. Some of the displays by the boys kept the spectators
amused at times, but on the whole the
play was good and the spectators
keenly interested. Supporters of
both sides were expressing words of
encouragement to their favorites.
Ten minutes of the second half had
gone when Mitchell received a pass
from Stevenson, and scored Cumberland Juniors' second goal, again tle-
Ing the score. The High School boys
tried hard to get on the lead again,
but Boffy, Strachan and Walker were
now playing a good defence game and
would not let them get through. Freloni got away on the left for Cumberland and sent In a lovely cross,
which was takon up by bond, and he
beat Fouracre, which made the leading goal for the Juniors. Both teams
pressed in turn for the remaining
part of tbe game, but without further
results, the Cumberland Juniors winning a well contested game by the
score of three goals to two.

BEVAN JUNIORS WON
VICTORY OVER BAYS
Thrilling Game at Union Bay
On Sunday Last—Visitors
Scored Three to Nil.
The Union Bay Juniors had the fast
Bevan contingent as their opponents
last Sunday in a Cumberland and District Junior League game, and were
defeated by the visitors in a fast game
by three goals to nil.
The weather was line and a fairly
'urge crowd witnessed the game, many
going down from Cumberland, which
shows the Interest now taken in
iunlor football In this district.
Keenan, tlie Inside left of the Bevan
contingent, scored two goals for his
team in the first half, and the visitors
cored another In the second, winning
!aslly.
The Bevan forwards played well together, their combination work was a
pleasure to witness. The half-backs
-lUo were sound, Weir being the pick;
the backs were safe, likewise Walker
in goal; he brought off two magnificent saves, which were greatly applauded.
The Union Bay forwards did not
**ork so well together; Campbell was
the pick and gave Walker a few diffl-
sult shots to deal with. The half-
jacks were not so effective as on pre-
'ious occasions. Auchlnvole played a
great game at back, and time and again
laved his side from a greater defeat.
Brown ln goal played a great game,
lesplte the fact that he let three goals
through.
The Union Bay team was consider-
ibly weakened by the absence of one
of the Auchlnvole boys, who suffered
i dislocation of his shoulder recently.
Mr. Reid of Union Bay refereed the
game.
JUNIOR FOOTBALL
JOTTINGS
Boffy, the Cumberland Junior's goalkeeper, brought off some good saves
last Saturday.
Hood, of the High School team,
played a good game at outside left, In
view of the fact that he never played
In this position before.
Lockhart and Farmer are Inclined
to rove too much and crowd in on
their centre half on various occasions.
Mitchell exhibited some erratic and
wild kickiug last Saturday, which is
unusual for him.  Steady up, Micky.
Weir, the Bevan Juniors' centre-half
and captain of the team, played a very
effective game against the clam boys
last Saturday.
The Union Bay boys played a good
game and were unfortunate to be
three goals down when the whistle
blew for time.
J. Stevenson, the High School back,
was rather fluky and niiskicked many
times.
The High School forwards combine
well together and In a few weeks will
take Borne beating.
Freloni, the clever outside left of
the Cumberland Juniors, tricked his
opponents on several occasions, but
he is very light and requires a little
more speed and a little more vim behind his shots and crosses.
Bond has Improved the forward rank
of the Juniors with his bustling tac
tics.
Auchlnvole, the right-back of the
Union Bay Juniors, was a tower of
strength to his team against the Bevan
boys.

THE HORRORS OF WAH
Two soldiers went into a restaurant
on the eastern front, and said to the
waiter:
"We wnnt Turkey with Greece."
The waiter replied: "Sorry, we can't
Servla."
"Well then, get the Bosphorus."
The boss came in and heard the order and then said:  "I don't want to
Russia, but you can't Rumania."
They were not a Paraguay Tommies,
as they went away Hungary, saying
they never sausage a place, and wishing they were at Frankfort or Bologna
where they could Havre decent meal.
But they longed most to get back to
"Old Brighty" to Sandwich, as they
were bred and mustered there.
HOT SURPRISING.
"Mother, I just saw a big Hon down
tlie street," announced little .Marjie,
calmly.
"Now, Marjie, you know that Is not
i," exclaimed her mother. "I want
you to go into the next room and tell
God what an awful story you told."
Marjie did as she was told and in a
few moments came back smiling.
"I told Him, mother, and He said:
Now Ihat is perfectly all right, little
girl. I've often been fooled by that
yellow dog myself.'"
He was a wise man who said Ihat
he didn't have time to worry. In the
daytime lie was too busy, and at night
he was too sleepy.
SOME U. S. PROHIBITION
DRINKS HAVE REAL KICK
"Smoke" Is the new drink from the
Orient that has made its appearance
In New York In powder form and of
a black substance; It ls poured Into
a milk bottle or other receptacle containing water. It fizzes and smokes
and the water turns greenish black,
somewhat tarnished. The experts
then swallow it In one gulp.
A freight handler pointed out a
friend who was ln the middle of the
street wrestling with himself. "He
just took a belch o' smoke," explained
the husky to a spectator.
As they watched the friend regained
his feet and dashed toward the building on the other side of the avenue.
He didn't stay when he reached the
brick wall. His strides continued up
the side ot It. Seven of them—and
then he fell back flat on the sidewalk.
Then he kicked two kicks with both
feet at once and suddenly was again
upright and running ln a sort of
shimmy gait toward the northern
horizon.
Another drink now popular with
men along, the docks, it ls reported,
is a gin made of potatoes and spiced
with black raw pepper. The pepper,
mariners say, ls not the ordinary
variety known in this country, but has
a flavor somewhat akin to molten lead.
Unless this gin is drunk fast, the
drinkers explain, about three fingers
ln the quickest gulp, it will set fire to
the epiglottis. It ranks second in
sensations to that derived in biting
a dynamite cap, they say.

On Savu, largest island of the group,
is a volcano which begau an eruption

Volcanoes are responsible for the

shores of Savu. Liquid lava cooled

jillows beat upon these caves, forcing

.lew Zealanders Took First German
Territory In Great War.
Jet black rocks marks a part of the
1'utuila coast, and the white foam ot
ihe breakers against these affords another striking natural spectacle.
The lirst enemy territory to be occupied by the British iu the World War
ivas Samoa. Upon arrival of the New
Zealand forces the Germans announced
.hut they would neither surrender uor

Pacific" had been invaded.
The people of the island add to Its

Polynesians of splendid physique and
character unspoiled by alien stock, or
.lie beachcombers, those living story
looks of the South Seas.
Islanders Bulk at Prohibition.
New Zealand's rigid enforcement of
prohibition is cited as one reason for
he agitation of European settlers for
dritlsh rule. The United States was
x party, with Great Britain and Ger
aiany, to the treaty of 1889, which
iiade the islands dry.
But neither treaty nor the 18th
amendment apply technically to the
3amoan national drink, kava, which
.s nonalcoholic, but intoxicating. Its
-'fleets are discernible, however, only
irom the waist down. He who im-
jibes too freely may lose the use of
ais legs but retain his wits. Wherefore Bailors mixed the kava with gin
iO insure a 100 per cent "jag."
Curious, too, is the method of compounding this beverage. The roots of
i sort of pepper plant are chewed by
/oung girls and deposited in bowls,
vhere the male youths may pour in
.vater to the proper dilution. The
Met kava chewer in a native village
s a sort of permanent queen of love
ind beauty.
The liquor leaves an enamel deposit
.n the bowls which is susceptible of
Ugh polbth. The natives believe a
ilmilar encrustation occurs In the
n the stomachs of consumers.
Ileaut)  Aids of Sunioun Belles.
Dainty Miss Canada daubs her nose
vith a powder puff when she goes
,'orth to conquer; the Samoan belle
ills or greases hor head and body from
he waist up when she appears in
■veiling dreBS. A closes likeness
irises, however, when the latter
ileachcs her hair with lime, or stains
it with red clay.
Not only are Samoans physically
ittrlctlve; they are mentally alert,
tractable, and bear no grudges, though
easily swayed by emotions. One phase
if Ihelr social organization, a sort of
'Oinmuuism which calls for the sliar-
ng of any property with him who asks
or it, is accounted a handicap in et-
orts to better their conditions. But
t has been said facetiously tliat their
lolllicnl campaign methods might be
worthy of emulation. For when a
'.eoder of a movement desires to gain
mpport he goes to the abode of the
lead man of the opposing faction,
irostrates himself and goes through
•lany postures of humiliation, until
isscnt is forthcoming. However, dedal of tlie petitioner is considered an
nsult and may lead to lighting.
Of the 14 Samoan islands, only four
re important. Of these four, Savu,
he largest, and Upolu, the most valuable commercially, now are under New
'.calami mandate. Tutuila and Manna
>re possessions of the United States.
I'utuila is reckoned the most beautiful
if the group, but its significance, es-
leclally In view of present day politi-
•al Interest in the Pacific, lies in its
lossession of one of the best and safest harbors in all the South Seas.

What is a
Recommendation Worth?
That depends very much upon who gives
it. For instance, we recommend Ames
Holden "Auto-Shoes" as the cheapest
mileage you can buy.
And we know a lot about tires. Wc have
to in our business.
Hence our recommendation should carry
some weight, apart from the fact that
.. we are benefiting to some extent by your
custom.
We know that if you buy once, you will
buy again—because you will find that
our recommendation saves you money
on mileage.
We will give you a guarantee with Ames Holden
"Auto-Shoes" too—a guarantee that protectsyou
against any defect in material or workmanship
which may arise at any time in thc life of the
tire. And we will get you an adjustment on that
basis should necessity arise, without quibble or
red-tape. Drop in nnd let us show you Ames

If what the Ku Klux Klan says be
true, that the press publicity which
is attacking the Klan's methods is
bringing in 5000 members a day, then
the editor might well pause before
adding his protest against this lawlessness.
Headed by the New York World,
twenty newspapers began a simultaneous publication of a series of sensational exposures. These dallies
were Joined by half a dozen weeklies,
which came forward with articles
headed "A Nightgown Tyranny," "Imperial Lawlessness," "Applied Violence," and—Ironical touch—"The Ku
Klux Klan. the Soul of Chivalry."
This laBt Is from the pen of Albert
De Silver In the Nation. "A child conceived in tbe tradition of n lawless
past and brought forth In the extravagant obscruruntism of present day
prejudice," says De Silver's attack.
The New York World and Its associated newspapers present specific
point as follows:
'It has grown from a nucleus of 34
charter members to a membership of
more than 500,000 within five years.
'Its domains and realms and klans
have been extended until they embrace
every state in the union but Montana,
Utah and New Hampshire. It practices censorship of private conduct behind tbe midnight anonimity of mask
and robe, and with the weapons of
tar and feathers.
"Its members are not initiated but
naturalized by a ceremony which Includes an approximation of the Christian ceremony of baptism.
'When it was organized it was
directed against the negro, but now
the negro has become a side issue. Today it is primarily anti-Jew, anti-
Catholic, anti-alien, and it Is spreading more than twice as fast through
the northwest as It is growing ln the
south."
The Houston Chronicle takes the
same stand of talking sense to the
Klan as follows:
"Boys, you'd better disband. You'd
better take your sheets, your banners,
your masks, your regalia, and make
one big bonfire. Without pausing to
argue over objects you have In mind,
it is sufficient to say that your methods
are hopelessly wrong. Every tradition
of social progress Is against them.
They ure opposed to every principle
on which this government is founded.
They are out of keeping with civilized
life."
ILO-ILO THEATRE
A HINT FROM PARIS
Paris milliners have pretty nearly
exhausted tbe animal kingdom—Including mere man—In their search
for novelties in style.
Now as a last reBort, they have descended upon the owl. The last word
in Paris creations is tbe owl toque,
which is worn jauntily, with perhaps
a hoot on tlie side.
Doubtless the new hat will be seen
quite a good deal on the owl cars and
at the owl resorts, of which the city
has quite a few.
The reason the milliners have hit
upon the owl but is because the owl
Is hard to get. That's what makes it
all the rage. The more difficult it is
to get a thing, the more desirable it
becomes.
It's tlie same way In this country
with booze, perhaps you noticed.
As a result of the vogue, the market
price of owls has jumped from $2 for
a live one to $200 for a dead one.
Which would seem to prove that an
owl, like some people, becomes more
valuable in this world by passing on
to the next.
i
ODDS AND ENDS
The following are extracts from the
notebooks of the great Russian writer
Anton Tchekov;
People are bachelors or old maids
because they arouse no Interest, not
even a physical one.
The difference between man and
woman: a woman, as she grows.old,
gives herself more and more to female
affairs; a man, as he grows old, withdraws himself more and more from
female affairs.
The more refined tho more unhappy.
Love, friendship, respect do not
unite people as much as common
hatred for something.
Death Is terrible, but still more terrible ls the feeling that you might
live for ever, and never die.
Everything which the old cannot
enjoy Is forbidden, or is considered
wrong.
A doctor is called ln, but a nurse ls
sent for.
At Wenatchee, Wash., Frank Schnell,
orchardlst, has solved the codling moth
problem. He festoons his trees with
hard cider made from last year's
wormy apples. The moths swarm the
:ans and drink themselves to death.
In the middle ages the diamond was
known as Pietra Delia Reconcilizlaone
—Italian for "Peacemaker between
man and wife." It still plays the part.
Resembles Friend Wife.—Dr. Ber-
toui has discovered In Paraguay a
plant now under special study at Kew
Gardens, the leaves of which are 200
times sweeter than sugar.
New Love.—American tourists for
whom the ancient Hudson's Bay Co.
bastion has ln past times been Nanaimo's pre-eminent attraction, now turn
their backs on this relic, while crowding one another to snap thc provincial
vendor's depot.

G. W. V. A. SMOKER
WELL ATTENDED
Captain  Carmichael   Addressed
Comrades at Length on the
.   Amalgamation Question.
The "smoker" held under the auspices of the O. W. V. A. on Saturday
last was well attended, many comrades coming from Courtenay ami
Comox districts. A good musical programme was proviScd, in addition to
smokes, liquid and other refreshments.
Amalgamation Chief Topic.
The chief subject of discussion was
the one of amalgamation, which is
causing much Interest in tlie organizations of ex-service men.
Capt. Carmichael. vice-president ol
the provincial command of the O. W.
V. A., addressed tlie meeting at considerable length, devoting much
time to the legality of selling beer
In soldiers' clubs aud about a quartei
of an hour to the amalgamation of all
ex-service organizations in Canada,
the subject which will occupy the time
of the Dominion convention at Port
Arthur. Captain Carmichael snid he
was lu favor of amalgamation but the
tenor of his remarks led to the belief
that he was ready to accord the suggestion but faint praise. He said the
O. Vi. V. A. was a national organization with millions of dollars' worth
of property, while all other ox-service
ganizntions were limited In their
scope, lie had an open mind on the
subject but could not see what other
organizations had done or why the
O. W. V. A. should make any sacrifices to bring out amalgamation.
Affiliation, lie thought, might be more
desirable, but what he particularly
favored wns the absorption of all other
ex-service organizations by the G. W.
V. A. •—
Capt. G. R. Bates, president of thc
Courtenay branch, said lie entirely disagreed with Capt. Carmichael ln his
remarks. He and the Courtenay
branch were out for amalgamation,
even at the cost of sinking the identity of the G. W. V. A. Politicians had
made altogether too free a use of the
G. W. V. A. on both sides and ex-
service men would never get anywhere until they could speak with one
voice ill such matters.
Mr. C. J. Bunbury criticised Mr.
Carmichael's remarks ln the same
vein. The Cumberland branch has
passed a resolution that they are content to let the matter rest with the
provincial command, while thc Courtenay branch is out for amalgamation
along business lines even if the G. W.
V. A. has to sacriflce Its Identity ln so
doing.

WHEN THE SERMON IS TOO LONG
Ray Hagen, inventor of the saying

sermons. Hs is going to try it next
Sunday if he goes to church, We will
admit that it is bad enough to annoy
the divine by looking at your watch'
at frequent periods when the sermon
ls overlong, but Ray has gone this one
better. He has perfeted the deadly
Insult of holding the watch to his ear
to make sure that It is still going!
