Beer by the glass in Cumberland
became an actuality again last Friday when the Cumberland, Waverley
and Union Hotels, operated by Win.
Merrifield. F. Dallos and Robt Yates,
respectively, tncked up their licenses
and opened wide their doors in order
that thirsty souls might wet their
whistles. The parlors where tlle
amber colored liquid is dispensed
have all been dolled up and look
more like a quick lunch room than
resorts of the old days of the bar
room. There are no bars—just clean
tables at which one can sit and en-
Joy his hops.
There ls another difference between
the present system and the old bat*
room. Today instead of n bouncer
as some plnces used to have, in the
neatness of the places a conxer lingers, making the service unique in the
annals of tlle liquor trade of British

Conti, will clash with Esquimau In
Nanaimo on Saturday afternoon In thc
semi-final for the championship of the
province, the winner to meet St. Andrew's In the dual game which is to
be played In Vancouver on April 18.
The management of Ihe local team
Is confident of a win against Esquimau, but nevertheless is fielding Its
strongest team, the same one which
annexed the Davenport Shield and
the Brackman-Ker Cup, coming
through the latter competition without a goal being scored against it.
Blair still has his lucky horse shoe,
so a win is Inevitable.
COURTENAY—On Monday afternoon there was a preliminary meeting at the office of the Comox Creamery Association of those interested in

J. W. Flinton, Theed Pearse, R. U.

School Gardens
And Property
Being Despoiled
In the past the "Islander" has published numerous complaints concerning the wanton destruction of puhlic
property in and ahout (he city, and
thinking that such warnings would

nothing more was done in this connection. But no, such is noj the
case, for on Tuesday we were n-j-
tonished to hear that the work of
those men, who have heen trying to
beautify the puhlic school ground, i-

the ground as a shorter route to got

pathway has been built, primarily fori
the use of the pupils hut also for the
Use of these trespassers, hut they re-1
fuse to use it, simply because hy cut-

doing this they also consider it necessary to grasp each plant as if to

assistance such smull plants can he

comprehend.
Such conduct is inexcusable. Even
the smallest tot at school has enough
pride in the playground to keep otf

grown-up should he the same, tlu
more so since they are paying out, in
taxes, part of their hard-earned

FIRE PREVENTION ESSAY    »••• boggs TO LECTURE
BY CLAUDIA HARRISON
KEEP THIS DATE OPEN
A whist drive and dance, under the
auspices of the Fraternal Order of
Eagles, will he held i;, the llo-Ilo
Hall on Monday May 11, Mother':- Day
You are asked to keep tliis date open.
and further announcements will he
made later.
Charged with nssault and causing
grievous bodily harm to his wife,
Ernest Kerton was, on Tuesday
brought before magistrate Hames. The
accused was taken into custody on
Monday night at eleven o'clock. Kerton was remanded for further hearing
on Thursday evening.
In our issue of March 27 announcement was made thu( Miss Claudia H.
Harrison had won first prize for tho
whole of Vancouver Island, exclusive
of Greater Victoria, in the public
school div. of the lire prevention essay
contest conducted by the British Columbia Pond of the Ancient and Honorable Order of the Blue Goose. Miss
Harrison is a pupil of Vice-Principal
H. E. Murray In the Cumberland Public School and her essay, for which a
medal is to be presented, is published
below.
"Fire is a good servant but a harsh
master." True indeed ls this quotation for, when handled properly and
with care fire Is a valuable servant.
It cooks our food, boils water, affords warmth, smelts ore in the process of producing metals and Is a
means of giving motion to engines of
all kinds besides thousands of other
uses beneficial to mankind.
Nearly every day we read In glaring headlines of great uncon8troliable
tires destroying factories, homes, forests, entire cities and other places
of value, leaving many people utterly
destitute.
Canada loses forty eight million dol
mrs every year through fires. Tho
deatli toll has been estimated to he a
life each day. All this Is due to the
negligence of those who handle it,
thus allowing the servant to become
the master.
Many hundred years ago man acquired the art of creating fire hy the
friction of two very dry sticks and
later by the striking of flint or like
materials. This process was very
slow and required continuous effort toi
produce a single spark, which, when
finally kindled, required unfailing and
dlligenl fanning to make a fire.
During the past hundred years man
bas progressed to such an extent that
a very simple means of starting a fire
iias been invented which however has
become a menace when in the hands
of   careless   people.       This   Is   the:
iful and valuable forests in the world.
Great sawmills have heen built in various parts of Canada for the production of lumber which is one of the Dominion's leading Industries. It is so
abundant that much of it is exported
to numerous countries besides providing us with homes, furniture, fuel,
bridges, railway ties, factories, aud
many other uses equally as beneficial
Although this is so, Canada has
more forest fires and other fires destructive of valuable property than
comparatively any country in the
world.
It Is generally thought that most
forest fires are due to the negligence
of people who are careless in disposing of half-used matches, cigar and
cigarette butts. When walking iu
the woods, perhaps admiring the natural home of the birds and beasts, a
cigarette may he lighted aud the
match carelessly tossed aside without
seeing that It is extinguished. Even
though there be but the minute n
spark from the match discarded, a
current of air may fan It Into a crack,
ling fire, sweeping all before it. It
takes hundreds of years to grow a
forest but only a few hours to destroy one by lire, its greatest enemy.
Campers also have a great deal to do
with the destiny of a forest. Careful
campers never light their fires near
tall, dry grass, fallen logs or punk.
They choose an open space, free from
dry pine needles, wood, and build
their lire between two houlders, if
possible to get 1'pon leaving camp
they see that every spark is thoroughly extinguished.
A forest lire not only destroys the
possibilities of lumber trade but also
agriculture. Where a severe flro
has burnt the ground, alt the humus
or decayed vegetable matter is also
burnt, and where this is so, few
things will grow.
People are often very careless in
and about their homes. They leave
matches upon the tops of stoves and
other   places   equally   as   dangerous.
The next lecture under the extension course of the University of Brit-
I ish Columbia will he held in the Lecture Hall of the Athletic Association
on Saturday evening at 8:00 o'clock,
i when Dr. T. H. Boggs, Ph.D., will talk
' on the subject, "Periods of Business
Depression; Can they be avoided?"
1 The lecture Is open to the public,
' no admission being charged, and it is
hoped that a large number will take

Having viewed the year's biggest

adventure on land, local photoplay
lovers are curiously awaiting the Ini
tial showing of what ls regarded as
the greatest sea drama ever filmed.

"The Sea Hawk," for live years
one of the best sellers on the popular
fiction shelf, and dealing with the
colorful adventures of English knights
and sweethearts and Barbary corsairs,
has required a gigantic background
for its many vivid scenes.
Four gigantic sea going vessels ot
the Sixteenth Century, exact in every
detail and manned by over a thousand sailors, corsairs, galley slaves and
officers, participate in much of the
action, several naval battles, during
which ships ram into each other head
on, then lash themselves together,
while their crews engage in hand to
hand combat, are said to be but a few
of the unique and highly exciting
scenes of the production.

Having to do with the life of Sir
Oliver Tresslllan as a Spanish prisoner at the oars of the galleon, his escape aud final elevation to the command of a Moorish gallease and all oi
the basha's corsairs, "The Sea Hawk"
reveals many bits of historical facts
never visualized before, and there is
said to he many thrills and heart
throbs in tlie episodes depicting the
struggles of the late English knight
to convince his sweetheart of his Innocence of the murder of her brother.
and to regain his lost standing among
his countrymen, and in the favor of
Asad, ruler of Algiers.
The seas scenes are said to be the
most unique and the biggest in physical action, although tbey do not over
shadow the gorgeousness of the early
English scenes and the quaint oriental beauty of the Algerian sequences. More than $85,000 in costumes were designed and executed for
the members of "The Sea Hawk" cast
that the details of early fashion might
not be neglected.
Milton Sills heads the exceptional
cast in Mr. Lloyd's big spectacle,
playing the dual character of Sir
Oliver Tresslllan and Sakr-el-Bahr.
Enid  Bennett has  been    given    the
principal feminine role, with Lloyd
' Hughes, Marc MacDermott, Wallace
Beery, Frank Currier, Wallace MacDonald, Hector V. Samo, Fred de
Sllva, ' Kathleen Key, Mme. Medea
Radzlna, Christine Montt, Lionel Bel-
more, Robert Bolder and others of
note lending support.
Among the many beautiful scenic
shots the picture is said to contain
are some of the most successful night
: scenes ever filmed—in particular a
j battle between an English frigate
, manned by 400 men and a Moorish
' gallease rowed by 21)0 slaves and de-
• fended by twenty-live brass cannons
.and a hundred spearmen and bowmen.

OTTAWA,—An export taxation on
Canadian lumber was advocated in
the House of Commons recently by T.
W. Dickie, Conservative, Nanaimo.
To conserve Canadian timber and
prevent wholesale exportation, Mr.
Dickie thought that a tax of $5.00 a
thousand feet board measurement
might be placed on all hard woods
and on numbers 1 and 2 grades of
spruce, pine and similar woods.
On inferior logs he recommended
a tux of $2.00 a thousand. On pulp
wood he recommended a tax of $2.5u
a cord for the cut on settler's lands
and of $5.00 a cord on all other pulp
■ wood.
Effective in two years
This tax, he thought, should become effective on January 31, 1927.
This would give the present users of
Canada's lumber time to readjust
their business and establish mills in
Canada, If they wished.
In the interim, he would like '•>

Once more Richard Barthelmess
proves that one does not have to stick
to handsome matinee Idol parts to be
a success in the movies.
He  proved  It as  the  plain  backwoods boy hero of "Tol'able David,"
as he also did with his portrayal ot
the Chink ln "Broken Blossoms."
j    He proved It as the rugged sailor
lad of "Fury."     He proves It again
and more emphatically than ever be-
| fore  In    "The   Enchanted  Cottage,"
i First  National  picture showing this
• Friday and  Saturday  at  the  Ilo-llo
Theatre.
This time he proves it aa a returned English soldier, a victim of
, the world war.
j    The story Is simple   and    strong.
[ Hating himself because of hla worn
', body, Oliver Bashford  (Barthelmess)
breaks his engagement with hie boy-
' hood sweetheart, quits his family and
; goes Into seclusion in a lonely cottage In the woods.     There he meete
Laura, lonely little governess and aa
j ugly as himself.      Learning that his
■ sister Intends to live with  him  "to
| cheer him up." he endeavors to avoid
her by marrying Laura.     Oliver and
Laura  at  first   hate  themselves   for
i what they have done. But soon thereafter they begin to Bee with the eyes
Of love. To each other they become the
most beautiful of all living creatures.
Tbey  are  re-created   by  love  which
gives them a beauty that none others
can see.
Only a very fine artist could give
such a splendid characterization as
BartlielmesH, and no better selection
for the role of Laura could have been
made than that of lovely May McAvoy, who, like Barthelmess, sacrifices her own good looks, except In
a charming dream sequence of the
picture to the makeup of an ugly
duckling.
"The Enchanted Cottage," adapted
from Sir Arthur Wing Plnero's play,
was directed by John S. Robertson,
and supporting the star, besides his
talc Hed leading lady, are such artists
as Marlon Coakley, Florence Short,
Holmes B, Herbert. Ethel Wright, Ida
Waterman and Alfred Hickman.
The English settings designed by
Livingston Piatt, are in themselves a
fine achievement. Taken as a whole
"The Enchanted Cottage" Is an unforgettable piece of screen entertainment.

THE CREATIVE POWER OF THOUGHT
As you think, you travel; and as you love, you attract. You are today where your
thoughts have brought you; you will be tomorrow where your thoughts take
you. You cannot escape the result of your thoughts, but can endure and learn, can accept and be glad. You will realize the vision (not the idle wish) of your heart, be it
base or beautiful, or a mixture of both, for you will always gravitate towards that which
you secretly, must love. Into your hands will be placed the exact results of your
thoughts; you will receive that which you earn; no more, no less. Whatever your present environment may be, you will fall, remain, or rise with your thoughts, your vision,
your ideal.    You will become as small as your dominant aspiration.

THE HIGH TIDE OF EASTER
Shadow and sunlight, ebb and flood, mourning and rejoicing are not more opposite than the
subdued and sorrow mood befitting Lent, and the
triumphant gladness of Easter. As Good Friday
in the solemn passing, recalls to us the day when
the darkness of the cross made the sun ashamed
to shine, so Easter Sunday, with a supreme radiance, indicates the hour that is the coronation of
humanity. Jew and Roman combined in the
crucifixion of Him who came to save but they
could have had no power against Him had he not
willingly offered himself to atone for the sins of
the world. "I am the Good Shepherd," He said.
"I lay down My life for the sheep. I have power
to lay it down and I have power to take it again."
No mere man could have made that assertion.
Well might the sun in darkness hide
And shut His glories in,
When God, the mighty maker, died
For man, the creature's sin.
Christ died and we must die. There is an
hour in the unseen future known to God, but unknown to us, when our friends and kindred will
say of us, one by one, "He is gone." "She is not
here." But Christ arose again from the dead,
and so shall we. We shall live again. Not in
this poor world of change and loss, but in a far
more beautiful one, into which death cannot
enter.
Because Chirst lives, we shall live. This is
the joy of Easter, and this is why when Lent is
over and winter is past and spring has returned
Christian life reaches its highest water mark on
the shores of time in an exultant alleluia that reverberates around the globe.
THE GLORIOUS DAY
Over the whole world on Sunday will ring the
anthems of ressurrection. Beginning in the far
Orient it runs, with the dawn to the limits of the
Occident, is sounded from every church bell up
to heaven like a paean of hope and promise. The
winter is past, and Nature has set man again the
lesson, which since time began she has spread out
before him in the earth, that book which may be
read by the unlearned savage as well as civilized
man. There is no death, there is no effort that
sinks into the dim void and becomes naught, there
is no cessation of soul influence. The summer
comes and its glory passes, the harvest time of
our lives wanes, the fields are brown and barren,
and looking over them sadly we grieve that all of
our hopes were not broughtrto fruition.
Yet we have lived and loved, and that is within itself a boon. From the graves where were
laid our crucified joy. our blameless offerings to
untoward destiny, our loved and noble ideal*),
shall arise a glorified spirit to guide others down
the rough way to the place where the "great
light" shines. No path of sorrow in the vale of
life is virgin to the naked feet of our shrinking
souls. Wherever the water is deepset and the
shadows fall darkest, there trod the martyrs of
the ages and though they found the sepulcher at
the end of the journey, being dead, they yet live
and speak with undying utterance.
Chirst is risen from the dead! Long ages
passed when it seemed to the waiting nations thac
He was yet in the tomb, and in the sleep of death
had forgotten the world. Toil, strifes and anguish were the portion of His people, for the poor
are His. Wickedness wore the robe and crown
and filled the earth with sighing. Even then
there were brave hearts that looked up through
the clouds and listened for the anthem of the
resurrection. It was heard at last, and liberty of
thought, faith and conscience were proclaimed.
The cerements of terror arc cast off and lie in the
open sepulcher, and with them arc the broken
shackles and rendered fetters.
EASTER PLANT LEGENDS
The Christian legends connected with plants
generally explain their behavior during Passion
week. The aspen still shivers with remorse because when Christ passed, it had boldly faced the
heavens instead of bowing its head in company
with the other trees. The Saviour cast one look
on it and the memory of that sorrowful glance is
handed down even to this generation.
The willow was used for the scourges, and
ever since it has drooped, it is not to be touched
as firewood. However, it affords a safe refuge
in a storm, for not even lightning will deign to
strike it. A fungas that grows on the elder and
is now known as Jew's ears, was orignally called
Judas' ears. The wood sorrel was standing at
the foot of the cross and received some drops of
the precious blood. These she still carries. The
Italians have the same legend and call this little
blossom "alleluia," as if the very flowers rejoicu
in the great gift of the world. The scarlet anemone, too, is said to bear the stains of Christ's
blood.
THE EASTER EGG
From all traditions, the egg has been associated with Easter from the beginning of its celebration. It is supposed to typify the revival of
life out of death, or, in other words, the resurrection. Another beautiful suggestion of this idea
is developed in the butterfly, and it would seem
that nothing could be more appropriate for an
Easter decoration than these lovely winged creatures whose mission in life, like that of a rare and
gifted soul of which it was anciently regarded as
the emblem, seems only to diffuse joy and radiance and beauty wherever they go. Formerly
the eggs were blessed by the priests and distributed among the parishioners, the gilded ones being reserved for royal personages. Sometimes
they were painted and intended as gifts to sweethearts for which often the most celebrated artists
did not disdain to contribute their art.
EASTER MILLINERY
Easter approaches and aside from its character as a religious festival, it is significant in
the feminine mind of spring millinery. Miss
Vanity finds Easter much to her liking, for, while
the church goers are thinking of the religious import she is regaling herself in her new dress and
bonnet. The great gown of radiance and splendor is hooked up the back. Miss Vanity takes a
deep breath and pulls hard. The atrocious deed
of squeezing a natural 28 waist into an unnatural
18 inch gown is accomplished. The collar is
choking. What matter? The hat that looks
like a bee hive, with great ceremony is securely
anchored to a Psyche knot that is transferable.
Miss Vanity is in full uniform. After drawing
on her gloves she sails forth to church, the happiest woman in all Christendom, feeling so swollen with bonnet glory that she walked boldly to
the very front pew where all might see the splendor of her top piece and she stood up first of all
and sat down last and walked the longer way
home, and then sat in state on the front porch.
Does she hear the church service? Not a word.
She is wondering if the back hooks are showing
and if the 18-inch waist will produce immediate
death or slow destruction. But she is beautiful,
therefore she is happy. Whether or not she is
comfortable is a different and less pleasant matter
Certainly the new Easter is a strong contrast
to the old. We know that things do move, so let
them go!
There are many superstitions connected with
'Sunday which are almost as imperative as laws.
| One of these is the necessity of having something
| new to wear on this day in order to insure happiness for the coming year. Hence the Easter
bonnet.

You Can Be Beautiful!
Here Is a picture that proves It. It is the simple
tale ot a young girl and a man whom beatuy
had passed by.
The world thought them homely; they thought
so themselves. Then through the magic power
of love they were made beautiful. They radiated beauty.
And the best part is, it's true. Scientists will
tell you. Psychologists will tell you. Beau'.y
comes from the soul. It shines through the
eyes; it illuminates the face.
It is the fire and glow of life and love that mak'.
beauty.
A picture of rare beauty and artistry, a picture

THE TIDES
The first warm days are sure to seo
some of you at the beach. You will
stop your play to watch the tide as
it ebbs or flows. Why does the water
sometimes come close to the bank, at
others stop some distance from the
shore? It is an old question and the
answer ls not easy to understand. We
have taken an answer from an article
found some time ago in a copy of My
Magazine, which some of our older
readers may like to think about.
Ever., one knows that the tides are
rhythmic—that is to say, they occur,
about equal Intervals, like the (Tripping of water from a leaking tap ln
contrast to the running murmur of
the brook. The tides are rhythmic
in their ebb and flow, and also In
the regular recurrence of the very
high and low tides.
The moon pulls the near side of
the earth more strongly than It pulls
the centre, and the waters more
strongly than the solid earth, so that
the sea on the side nearest the moon
ls heaped up and we have high tide.
But 'he moon pulls the far side of
the earth less strongly than it pulls
the centre, and the water less strongly than the land (as the waters are
still farther away), bo there must
come about a bulging of the sea on the
side farthest from the moon, and we
have another high tide. At two opposite sides of the earth there must
be high tides at the same time, and at
opposite places—half-way between
the places where there Is high tide-
there will low tides.
As the earth revolves on its axis
every meridian comes opposite the
moon ln turn, and, as one revolution
takes twenty-four hours, there are usually two high tides and two low
tides in that period, one when the
place ls nearest the moon and one
when It Is farthest away. The angle
at which the moon lies in relation to
the earth has also an effect upon the
tides, and we must go a step farther,
tor the sun also exerts a pull on the

earth, and It is when sun, moon and
earth are all in a straight "ne> fl0
that the pull of the sun and moon
comes together, with the earth at its
nearest, that we get the highest tides.
What ls then produced ls a great
tidal wave, sweeping round the earth
at a speed unimaglned by any of the
world's Inventors, the astonishing
speed of 500 to 600—or even 660—
miles an hour. The velocity ls reduced as the' tide comes near land,
and the wave breaks up, being Influenced by islands and peninsulas,
straits and channels.
The tide comes in sometimes gently
sometimes violently, according to the
state of the weather and tbe configuration of the coast, but however It
comes it must come wilh a thud on
.he shore, which is felt by all shore
animals. There is also great can.,-
ing power In the currents that come
with the tide, bearing along in their
grip not oul. sand and line gravel, iiut
shingle and stones. As we all know,
this impact of the sea upon the land
cuts into the coast and wears down
the rocks, and whatis worn off in one
region Is deposited elsewhere. At
one place the land loses! at another
place lt gains.
HINTS FOR SPRING'S
AMATEUR DECORATOR
If the weather is damp or frosty, a
room that is to be redecorated should
have a Are lighted in it the day before
painting is commenced. While tin
paint Is drying a very small Are
should be kept going. Keep the windows open at the same time.
Old paint and damp woodwork absorb moisture, and all outside work,
therefore, must be dried before the
new paint is applied, otherwise it
will blister and peel later on in the
year.
See that a room Is free of dust and
dirt before painting, and have a rubber and a bottle of turps handy to
wipe off at once any brushmarks that
are unwanted or any paint spilled or
splashed.
Paint collects in corners in ugly
little blobs, so every few minutes pass
tbe brush over the corners to gather
up any surplus.
Do not charge the brush too fully.
Dip only three-parts of the bristles
into the paint, and do not recharge
till all has been used.
Three parts putty to one part white
lead should be used for stopping
holes, always tinted with a little of
the paint which is to be used later.
It should be pressed home with a
painter's knife and then levelled on*.
It should dry very hard.
Turn your window boxes or plants
once a week so that they do not always grow In one direction, towards
the sunlight. A lop-sided plant Is
not pretty.
Put proper-sized pieces of oil-cloth
In the bottom of kitchen and bathroom waste baskets. Nothing can
sift or soak through, and when soiled
they can be easily wiped off.

Those who are careful use safety
matches and see that all chimneys are
cleaned at least twice a year, that
the space between stove and floor is
covered with some heat resisting material. These people also see that
[nflamable materials are kept at a
reasonable distance from stoves or
luruaces. Stove pipe holes are covered with heavy tin, furnace and
electric light wires are properly covered and the latter are kept well dust-
ad if near stove pipes. Under parts
of the house are enclosed so that the
■vliid cannot blow paper and like materials near the basement, stove or
furnace. Careful people never think
of putting paint, gas, oil cau or oily
*.Yar*'.e. such as rags saturated with oil.
In any place wltere there Is a likelihood of spontaneous combustion, caus
ing any damage.     All rubbish that Is
inflamahle is put in some receptacle
where there is no danger of its being
Ignited, until it Is disposed of. AH
receptacles for disposing of ashes or
like material are made of heavy metal
or some material equally substantial
non-lnflabablc. Candles or lamps are
rarely used where electric current is
available and then with the greatest
of care. Gas and coal oil are never
kept In the house and, under no circumstances whatever, ever used for
starting a fire, because of the Hltell"-1
hood of causing an explosion. '
Canada has the greatest future of
any country In the world because of
its natural resources particularly
t!ml*er and it is absolutely essential
that her great timber limits should
be adequately protected from thc
danger of fire.

Recently certain great leaders in

impetus to the discussion by adding
the weight of their distinction to advancing their interpretations of thc

This Is no doubt the reason why Mr.
Fox has made his picture version ot
thc subject at this time. It Is evident

With petite Shirley Mason in n role
more suited to her chic personality
than In which she has appeared recently, "The French Lady,'' coming tu
to tlie Ilo-llo Theatre next Monday
and Tuesday. The picture, a William
Fox production, is an adaptation oi
William J. Hurlburt's well known
stage play, "The Strange Woman,"
which made a lasting impression on
Broadway.
"That French Lady," ls the story oi
a Parisian writer, Inez De Plerrefond
who, through a luckless marriage i.s
won over to the much discussed theory of free love. She writes a book
on the subject, declaring that the wed
ding ceremony ls a bond of slavery for
women. Its bold declarations make
even Paris gasp.
It  Is  then  that  Inez  meets  John
Hemingway,     a     young     American
student, and his friend Charlie Abbey.
Inez and Hemingway fall In love and
it is not until John asks the girl lo
marry him and return to America thai
he learns of her views on marriage.
Being  a  perfectly  conventional   person,  Hemingway  is stunned.      With
the forceful assistance of Abbey, however, his love proves stronger than his
scruples and he brings Inez home to
his   mother  In  Delhi.   Iowa.      It   Is
then  that the action  of the  picture
takes the form of a whirlwind.      \
[social revolution and counter revolu-
I tion on the part of Inez puts the town
ln a state of chaos and, when things
look their blackest, out of the darkness  appears  thc  gentle,  charitable
mother  of  John   Hemingway.      Her
willingness to let J°nn and Inez live
their lives as they see fit, conventions
and  ail  else to  the contrary,  opens
Inez's eyes to tlie nobleness of unselfish sacrifice. If this sweet woman

little animal which in the emblem of
Canada.
The selection by the Mutual Life of
Canada of the Denver as their emblem
Is particularly litting. It is the recognition by a great Canadian Company, whose policy Is construction and
conservation, uf a wonderful Canadian
animal whose constructive Industry
is probably the greatest single force
that nature lias provided for conservation.
In terms of work, the theoretical
unit is the horse-power. This consists of the power exerted in raising
83,000 lbs one foot in one minute or
3,300 His. 10 feet fn one minute.
The total horse-power affected there
fore by the collective efforts of In-
numberuble of these little animals
down through the centuries in the felling of timber, transporting of material
and the construction of dams is tncal-
cuable and cau be classed only as
one of the great natural forces.
Since action and reaction are equal
the titanic labors of the beaver have
had far reaching effects. What could
have been the purpose and what Is
the effect of all this labor? Dealing
with the effect first we find that his
is the only resistance offered to the
destructive combination of temperature, water nnd gravity that would
carry off all silt and sediment to the
sea and make of everything water
courses, gravel beds aud treeless
wastes, barren of vegetation.
Against these conditional and where
ever running water is found, the
beaver builds bis dams with fine consideration making them wide enough,
to he used as roads aud these dams
soon form lakes that trap the slit and
later become swamps aud marshes
and still later the most beautiful meadows. This work he continues on
each stream up to its source unless
interrupted by man who short-slght-
edly values the beaver for his pelt
rather than his usefulness as a coneer
vaUon engineer. With good luck,
however, this wonderful builder continues his work up stream until he
succeeds in forming those series of
meadows ami plateaus, so common to
nearly all countries, rich in alluvial
soil and self-contained in respect to
the conservation of moisture. This
makes possible tlie growth and development of great limber und agricultural wealth. So much for the effect
which is clearly show,*, fn the Canadian heritage in tlie physical shaping
of which the beaver has been such 4
tremendous factor. The purpoBfl,
however, is not K" Clear, unless in addition to his other virtues our beavor
friend is equipped with almost human
intelligence anil possesses a shrewd
Idea of the Principle of Insurance and
visualising the future, took out and
matured with uni reusing labor the
great National  Endowment of farm
and  forest  land which  the people of
Canada are enjoying today,

success.

It. Goodall; Consolation, Mrs. Saunders; 1st Gentleman, Mrs. McMillan
(playing a gentlemen's hand); Consolation, J. C. Coats. Following the
serving of excellent refreshments,
the crowd of now nearly two hundred
made merry ln the dance hall upstairs until 12 o'clock, to the best of
music supplied by Messrs Stewatt
Jackson, Newman. Robertson anJ
Goodall.
The expenses In connection with the
affairs were practically nil, as nearly
everything was given 'fee of charge,
and on checking up the net receipts

of $200.00. A large part of this sum
was received from the raffle ot a
beautiful cushion, made and donated
