Wood Tennis Court
Proposal Meets With Unanimous
Support—Committees Formed
To Carry On Initial Work
A small but businesslike meeting of
Cumberland tenuis enthusiasts took
place on Tuesday evening in the Anglican Church Hall, when the question
of providing u wood court wns thoroughly discussed und plans made to
secure a site and the necessary money
for tho erection of a court in the near
future.
It was pointed out that a wood court
was not in any sense an experiment,
such courts having proved practicable
at Vancouver, Victoria and other centres With such a court iu this city
the playing season would be practically doubled — with a fast game
assured.
It is tentatively proposed to form a
Tennis Court Company and issue
shares at a value of ten dollars each to
provide the initial cost, shareholders
to be entitled to all playing privileges.
The fee for non-shareholders is to be
settled later.
The unanimous opinion of the meeting was: That Cumberland needs such
a court; that tlie time for talk Is past;
that from now on the password in
tennis circles is "Buy a Share—and
Then Buy Another!"
Committees to look after the details
were appointed and the president of
the Tennis Club was asked to call a
meeting of members on Tuesday,
March 8th, at 8.45 p.m.

SUMMER SCHOOL
FOR TEACHERS
The University of British Columbia
is arranging for the holding of a Summer School for teachers for six weeks,
beginning July 4th.
In addition to lectures by tbe regular members of the staff, special
courses will be given by outside professors. Of particular interest in this
latter connection is a course of thirty
lectures by Dean M. E. Haggerty, of
the College of Education, University ol'
Minnesota, on Mental Measurements.
Dean Haggerty served during the recent war as one of a small board of
psychologist who, acting under tbe
American War Department, developed
n series of mental tests for use in the
United States Army. He is generally
recognized as a leading authority at
the present time upon the newer
methods of measuring the mental ability and attainments of school children.
This course is provided by the University at the special request of members
of last year's Summer School.
Other special courses in education
will be given by Dean Coleman of the
factulty of Arts and Sciences, aud by
a third professor, yet to be engaged.
In the academic subjects, in addition
to those provided In the summer of
1920, there will be coures in Advenced
Commercial work and ln English Literature for High School teachers.
There is every reason to believe that
this year"s Summer School will be
even larger than that of last year, and
thut, in point of numbers, it will go
beyond the enrollment of any other
silimar school in Canada.
Itemeniber the "Linen Shower" for
the Hospital on Wednesday next.
On Saturday last tlu- No. 1 Surface
First Aid team journeyed to Nanaimo
to take part in tlie ceremonies ol'
presentation nf the championship cup
ami medals to (he winning teams in
tlie Dominion competition held some
time ago, when Vancouver [Bland had
tlie unique distinction ol' winning both
lirst and second places in the Domtu-
ion-wide events.
■ Besides the team, Mr. Chas. Graham,
Dr. MacNaughton and Mr. Geo. O'Brlou
also went down to take pari in the
ceremonies.
The Oddfellows' Hall was taxed to
its utmost capacity, hundreds being
unable to gain admittance. Trior to
the presentation a splendid programme or songs and selections was
given.
Mr. C. Tyler, who was chairman,
said he was glad to see such a large
crowd in attendance. He told of the
purpose of the gathering, the presentation of cups and medals to the Barton team of the Canadian Western
Fuel Company, and also the presentation of medals to thc First Aid team of
the Canadian Collieries (Dunsmuir)
Ltd. of Cumberland. The Barton team
captured the championship of Canada
in open competition, while Cumber-
laud came second in the miners' competition. Mr. Tyler pointed out that
it meant hard and constant study for
many months before the competition
for the teams. Work such as this, lie
declared, brought out the highest
qualities of man.
Continuing, -he said that all were
proud of the team which bad put Na-
naimo-on the map and were showing
iu a small way their appreciation. No
little part of the success of tho team
was attributed to the local medical
men aud the officials of the Canadian
Western Fuel Company, who had assisted and given much valuable time
to carry the work along. The chairman then called the Barton team to
the front of tlie platform and called
upon Dr. Brydone-Jack of Vancouver,
Provincial President of the St. John's
Ambulance Association, to present the
.Montizambert Cup and medals, emblematic of the Canadian championship and the Coderro Cup, emblematic
of the mining championship, along
with the SI. John's Ambulance Association medals.
Trophies Are Presented.
Dr. Brydone-Jack declared it afforded him a great deal of pleasure to present the trophies to Mr. Barton's team.
He apologized for the absence of the
Lieutenant-Governor, who, owing to
pressure of business found himself unable to be present. He pointed out.
however, that the Lieut.-Governor
takes a great deal of interest in first
aid work and has always supported
the movement, and if tlie presentation
had been held a couple of weeks later
His Honor would have been able to
come to Nanaimo.
Continuing, tbe speaker declared it
had not only meant months of hard
work for the Barton team to carry off
the highest honors in Canada, but it
had taken years to attain ttiat knowledge, He declared the success of the
Barton team not only meant a great
deal to the individual members, but to
tlie citlzone of Nanaimo as a whole.
The trophies meant little compared
with the fad thai these men have devoted themselves to service for others,
lie was pleased to pay trhiulc lo these
men. Tbey have devoted hours of
their time to this work, and have attained perfection in first aid work. He
would like to see Ihe work carried on
throughout the Island, not only by tho
miners but by individuals. Dr. Dry-
donc-Jnck then presented the cups and
individual medals to tlie team, expressing his great pleasure In Ihe
duty, He hoped the cups would lie
kept on the Island lor years to come.
Presents Government Medals to Nanaimo and Cumberland Teams.
Hon. William Sloan, Minister of
Mines, was called upon lo present the
medals, donated by the Province of
British Columbia, to both the Cumberland and Nanaimo teams. He was
proud tbat the miners of Vancouver
Island hnd not only won in the open
competition but also in the miners'
class, two distinctions to be proud ot
Tbo niednls be was to present on he-
half of bis government were unique,
inasmuch as thc Coat-of-Arms of the
Province was engraved on them. lie
was glad to see such interest In first
aid work, which is so closely allied
with mine rescue work.
In speaking of mine rescue work, be
told his hearers that Canada and tbo
United States lu the near future will
discuss tho standardization of mine
rescue work. He hoped the teams
would go afield. He would like to see
them attend some big meets which are

He then presented both the Nanaimo
and Cumberland teams with the government medals.
Or. Carson Presented Watch Fobs to
Cumberland Men.
Dr. Carson, of Vancouver, who Is
associated with Dr. Brydone-Jack in
Ambulance Association work, presented the watch fobs to the Cumberland
team, second prize in the Codere Cup
competition. In congratulating both
teams he declared his regret at not being a citizen of the Island, saying that
the feats of both teams reflected great
credit on both teams.
The gifts of the employees of the
Canadian Western Fuel Company and
the business men of Nanaimo, in the
form of cheques for thc individual
members of the Barton team, were presented by Mayor Bushy,

Mr. Chas. Graham, General Superintendent of tho Canadian Collieries,
in a few complimentary remarks to the
winning teams, said:
"It gives me great pleasure to add
my few words of congratulation to Mr.
Barton and his team for the honor
they have brought not only to themselves hut also to the city of Nanaimo
and the mining industry of Vancouver
Island.
"We all feel proud of the honor
which Mr. Barton and his team have
won. They deserve tbo honor, for the
work which Mr. Barton has done dates
bad; many years and he has been one
of the main supporters of the movement on Vancouver island.
"I also wish lo congratulate our
young team from Cumberland, which
has certainly made a wonderful record
for a young team. Experience counts
iu all things so thut the performance
of this young team Is all the more remarkable. Organized less than a year
ago. (hey won the Coulson Cup at the
Vancouver Island Association meeting
last September, beating tlie present
Dominion championj at that meet.
They have run second to the .N'anaimo
team in the Dominion championship,
and I want to say (hat this team will
be heard from during the coming year.
"I can well remember the organization of these first aid classes iu Nanaimo in 1005, and while there was a
first aid organization here prior to
that   time,   still I  believe   that   year

TREMLETT APPOINTED
PHYSICAL INSTRUCTOR
ANI) CLUB SECRETARY
At a recent meeting of tho Hoard of
Management of the Cumberland Literary and Athletic Association, Mr. J. W.
Tremlett was appointed permanent
secretary, librarian and physical instructor of tho institution. Tliero wore
some thirty-five applications for tho
position. Mr. Tremlett has been acting-secretary since the opening of the

really saw the beginning of organized
first aid work on-Vancouver Island. U
has been carried on continuously ever
since, aud I sincerely hope that It will
continue to bo carried on at tbo same
high pitch of efficiency.
"Tbe highest type id' service that
any person can render is that given to
the relief of suffering humanity, and
no tribute too great nan be paid to
those unselfish men and women who
devote their lives to that great work.
Most praiseworthy, indeed, is the work
of those few men and women, and they
are too few, that we find in every community who realizing the suffering
caused by accidents, give their best
efforts to relieve the pain and suffering of their fellows until a doctor can
be procured to give them attention.
These men are not professional men.
They are ordinary citizens who feel
that it is part of the duly tbey owe
humanity to fit themselves to relieve
the suffering of any person who is unfortunate enough to meet with an accident. They spend their time and give
up many of the pleasures of life to fit
themselves to relieve suffering humanity, with no hope of fee. and their reward is that glorious feeling that they
have been able to al least i ti 6 th pain
of some fellow man in his hour of
need.
"I wish I could Impro i o i you all
the necessity of an Intimate knowledge
of lirst aid. Few of us pass through
life without having occasion to use it
or to regret our lack ot knowledge,
iiml lew of us who do nol al somo time
or another have occa -ion to call Me1
firs I aid man blesned, whether on our
own behalf or on behalf of some one
dear to us. Keep up the good work
and I hops thai Vancouver Island will

Tho Metropolis team of Victoria
visited Cumberland on Sunday laat and
engaged the locals in a Vancouver Island League fixture. The Victoria
team traveled up from the capital city
on Saturday, staying at Union Bay until Sunday morning.
The journey up was a most trying
ono, the roads being iu had shape, and
in addition one or two minor breakdowns tended to dampen the spirits of
ihe team. Sickness and accidents to
individuals during the week put the
management of tbe Mets in quite a
quandary, and it was with a very
weakened team that they took the field
.lames kicked off at 2.16, and it Wtt8
plain to he seen that Tucker meant
business, lie got bis right wing men
working in nice style, but the visiting
hacks were fairly safe, and punted
char. The next few minutes saw the
Cumberland men forcing the play on
the left, with llitehens and Harrison
combining ulcely; after the hall had
been banged around for a minute or
two, Tucker James beat tbo visiting
goalie with a low shot, giving him no
chance to save at all, the first goal
coming after seven minutes' play.
From tbe centre tbe locals again raided the visitors' goal, Milligan and Bowman doing everything but score. Considering that the visitors had a weakened team, and the heavy condition of
the field, tbe visitors put up a most
excellent exhibition of football, and
kept the Cumberland men busy. Mill!
gan again got going and caused the
Met j' defence lots of trouble, and from
one of bis perfect passes James scored
goal No. 2.
Cumberland now had the upper hand
and raided tbe Mets' goal at will,
Miligan and Hitcbens, on their respective wings, making all the play. After
a beautiful piece of work Milligan
scored Xo. 3.
The second half was much moTe
even, the Mets' forwards causing
Strang and Clark lots of worry, but
Strang was perfectly cool and played
bis usual sterling game. A combined
effort by the Mets' forward resulted in
a goal, a shot from the visiting centre
giving Clark no chance to save.
Harold Koberts, who had played a
masterly game at centre-half, met with
a slight accident, putting him off lm
usual pep. He tried the outside right
position for the rest of the game, but
he does not belong there. His position
is centre-half, his tackling and feeding
of bis forwards being perfect. In facl
it was said on Sunday that Roberts
was the best centre-half in the province. We are inclined to believe it.
Time was called with Cumberland
easy winners hy a score of 3 to 1.
For tbe visitors the centre-half and
the whole of the forwards played
brilliant football.
For tbe home team, Clarke in goal
was safe, until he got crippled in the
second half; whilst Strang and Gough
both played .good hall. Roberts and
Irvine were the pick of the half-hacks,
nnd Milligan and llitehens were the
best among tbe forwards, Milligan being the best man on the field. Ollie
Harrison was doing splendid work at
outride left, and we can see no reason
why be should be displaced. Tucker
James, whilst showing lots of dash aud
scoring a couple of goals, was inclined
to show a little too much individual
play.
Xanaimo's football team romped
through the defence of Yarrows team
at .Nanaimo Sunday to the tune of (J
goals to 1, registering the most onesided victory of the season as far as
the Island league is concerned. Although tlie visitors were handicapped
somewhat hy the loss of their inside
left, who was accidentally cut on the
bead early in the game and forced to
leave the field to receive surgfeal attention, the visitors were completely
outclassed iu every department, according to the Xaiiaimo Herald, their
forwards being unable to solve the defence put up hy Mines, Stobbart, Dickinson, Murray, Hell and Routledge,
while the local forward line played as
one uian O'Brien, McMillan, Calder.
Robertson and*Husband nil taking a
prominent part in the registering of
the six goals.
SOUTH WELLINGTON
LOST TO VICTORIA WESTS
The South Wellington team came
out on tbe short end of a four lo three
score with the Victoria Wests in their
Island League soccer match at the
Athletic Park, Victoria, on Saturday.
It must be admitted, says tho Colonist,
by .any impartial observer of the game
that the Wests had rather the better of
the tuck a sone of their goals was the
result of a penalty another was scored
after what certainly looked from those
parts of the ground from which it was
possible to see the play, like a case of
"hands." However, Referee Livingstone could not have seen it, and the
linesman was also out of the right
line of vision, and the goal was allowed.
At the close of tho game some of the
up-Islanders' supporters aired their
feelings by some remarks to the referee which were more forcible than
polite, but they were certainly uncalled for. Livingstone made a very
fair and painstaking referee, and, if
he could not see everything, it was nol
his fault. Taking the match as a
whole, there was little to choose between tlie two teams and a little bit
the better of the luck gave the Wests
the game.
DAVE GIU1IA3H RELEASED.
Dave Graham, who played in the
half-back division for tbe local team,
has been released to Xaiiaimo.

Greatest Swindle
The Last Century
Thousands Swindled in a Fake
Scheme to Extract Gold From
Water of the Ocean.
The romantic story of the extracting
of gold from sea water swindle ls told
in a London paper by Mr. John Laurence, the famous criminologist:
The Rev. Prescotf Jernegan was the
organizer of one of the cleverest get-
rich-qulck schemes that have ever
beeu Invented—one which deluded
even the hardest-headed of business
men.
It was in 1806 that Jernegan, who
was then a Baptist clergyman, suddenly announced that while on holiday in Florida he had bad a remarkable dream.
"I dreamt," he said, "that there Is a
large quantity of gold lu sea-water,
partly natural and partly dissolved
from the vast Btores of sunken treasure
which had been sunk in the sea for
countless generations."
But It has been known for many
years that there Is gold In sea-water,"
objected one of his friends. "Only It Is
so expensive to extract that it does not
pay to do it. If some man could Invent
an easy, cheap way of extracting it he
would make'a huge fortune."
"That I saw in my dream," the minister calmly announced. "I saw ttie
whole process, which is a very simple
one indeed, and If I am only given a
trial I am sure that we can become
rich beyond tbe dreams of avarice."
Por some time lie worked in secret
at his Invention for extracting gold
from sea-water. At last he announced
that it was ready to be tried, nnd he
invited a number of his friends to be
present at the demonstration. It Is
a significant fact, by the way, that the
men he invited had all saved money
and were capitalists in a small way.
His apparatus consisted of a special
box, which be called his "Electrolytic
marine salts box," by means of which
the gold in sea-water was to bo extracted by electricity. On a deserted
part of the coast this box was taken,
and in the presence of all those who
had been Invited, solemnly placed in
the sea at the end of a short wharf.
Platinum wires were laid leading from
tbe shore to the end of the wharf.
How the Gold "Accumulated."
A small hut had been constructed by
Jernegan at the end of the wharf so
that the band of capitalists could see
that the magic box was not raised, nor
the platinum wires tampered with. All
one bitter December night the party
kept guard while, according to thc
reverend gentleman, gold was steadily
forming in the little box below the
waves.
The gold was certainly accumulating fast enough but not exactly in the
way that the deluded band of capitalists thought!
While they sat In the little hut, getting what shelter tbey could from the
piercing winds, and keeping a close
eye on the unbroken surface of the Icy
waters, a man named Fisher was actually underneath those waters adding
tho necessary gold which was to delude thousands of people and bring a
huge fortune to the man in whose fertile brain tbe scheme originated.
Fisher was a diver, and he wore a
special diving suit, by which he was
supplied with the air he wanted to
breathe from a special compressed air
apparatus, which he carried strappeil
on the back of his diving suit, so that
he was not compelled to have the usual
air pi'i\s which might betray him to
those sitting above. Wires had been
fixed under the water in order to
guide him to the box.
While the party were sitting in tlie
hut Fisher waded out from the shore
and substituted gold for the mercury
the box contained.
The following morning, when the
box was examined and passed on to
experts, the latter's report showed gold
In paying quantities.
The greed of the little band of capitalists was excited. They saw visions
of untold wealth, of gold coining to
them in vast quantities, thanks to the
wonderful dream of the Hev. Prescott
Jernegan. Little did they know tliat
the only gold the latter was likely to
extract as a result of his dream would
be extracted from the pockets of his
dupes and not a speck from the Bca-
water.
All Tests Prove Satisfactory.
One or two of the hard-headed dupes
asked for further tests to be carried
out before they Invented their money,
and they were carried out just ai
easily as tlle first one. A large nuni
ber of trials with Jernegan's magic
gold extractor were made along varl
ous parts of the coast, and, thanks to
the way Fisher, the diver, carried oul
his work, gold was always found in
paying quantities!
Every test carried out more and
more convinced tlie most skeptical
business men that tbe Rev. Jernegan
had made a wonderful discovery and
money began to pour In from excited

Investors in order to exploit the invention and make fortunes for themselves. The final "proof" that the
whole affair was genuine was given by
a famous chemist, who was so completely deceived, after making, what he
considered the most careful investigations, that he put no less than $100,-
"00 Into the scheme to make hundreds
of. the magic gold extractors!
A company was formed, with Jernegan as one of tlie chief promoters, and
many eminent business men as backers. All the business men honestly believed that they were in a genuine concern, and when tlie swindle was exposed it was found that some of them
had lost fortunes.
The company, under the title of the
Electrolytic Marine Salts Company,
was capitalized at $10,000,000, and the
money was forthcoming in a ceaseless
stream. People went mad to invest in
the swindle, and many angry scenes
took place because subscribers could
not get as much of the stock as they
wanted!
Jernegan did not omit to get as
much money as he could from his own
relations and friends, even swindling
his sister out of $800 which she,had
laboriously saved.
Nemesis.
To give confidence to tlie investors,
huge buildings were erected and hundreds of machines were set working In
extract gold from sea-water. A small
army of laborers of all nationalities
were soon digging, building and surveying. Lagoons were created from
which the sea-wator passed through
sluices Into the "gold accumulators."
The shares nf tlie company, worth
on a face value $25. Jumped to $150,
and there were scenes of wild speculation to obtain shares even al that inflated value. Of ihe gold extracted
(from the Investors' pockets I Jernegan was to receive under agreement
forty-five per cent., nnd when the
bubble burst ami lie Med to Buropo, he
actually managed to get away with
$125,000 In cash.
The Ill-gotten gains were, however,
soon spent, ami Jernegan found himself compelled to make an effort to do
some honest work.
Now conies the amazing pari of ihe
story. After his successful defence in
Vienna against extradition lie traveled
about the continent having a good
time, and finally went lo England.
There, at that time, a swindling company had actually been formed to extract KOld from sea-water by an entirely new process. Jernegan was
naturally attracted, wondering where
the swindle was, and lie made the
closest possible Investigations. He
came to the conclusion that the new
gold-froni-sea-wnler company was
genuine and he invested every penny
ho had left in it! Needless to say, he
lost all Ills money by an exactly similar swindle to the one through which
he had made It!
He was never brought to justice, and
the latest reports of him stated that
he was teaching In the Philippines,
where he actually tried to start another gold-extracting company on
similar lines.
Fisher, who was undoubtedly one of
the ring-leaders, fled, and died two
years later.
Frightful Speed nf Fifteen Miles Per.
Apropos of the present-day speed in
traveling hy airplane, automobile and
motorcycle, subscriber writing to an
Ohio newspaper says that an old scrap-
book contains a clipping stating that
the Lancaster, Ohio, scliool hoard In
1S28 refused to permit the use of a
schoolhouse for a debate as to whether
or not "railroads are practical." Tho
board members arc said to have reported:
"You are welcome to use the school-
house to debate all proper questions
iu, hut such tilings as railroads and
telegraphs are impossible and rank
infidelity. There is nothing in the
Word of Cod about them. If God has
designed tiial Ills Intelligent creatures
should travel at thc frightful speed of
fifteen miles an hour ilo would have
forecast it."

ELECTRICITY IN COAL MINES
"Addressing the Electric Club at its weekly
luncheon Friday on the subject of 'Electricity
ln Mining,' Mr. K. A. Haggen declared that if
the Vancouver Island coal mines were equipped
with the proper electrical apparatus the prlco
of coal could be reduced by $3 per ton. Such
apparatus, lie said, would cost between two
and three million dollars."—Province.
Mr. Haggen, mentioned in the above clipping
from the Vancouver Daily Province, is editor of
tlie B. C. Mining and Engineering Record, and is
recognized as one of the leading mining authorities of the province. Can it be possible he is so
ignorant of conditions relating to coal mining on
Vancouver Island as to make the statements
credited to him?
For many years past all tho mines worked in
the Comox district havo been operated entirely by
electricity. The Canadian Collieries (Dunsmuir)
Limited built its own hydro-electric plant at Puntledge, a few miles from Cumberland, and power
generated by this plant runs all the mines in the
district, as well as supplying light and power for
public and private use to Cumberland, Courtenay,
Bevan and the surrounding country.
It is such ill-considered statements as 'that
credited to Mr. Haggen that is the cause of much
of the agitation on coal prices in Vancouver, and
serve no useful purpose.
Statements like these are based on imagination
and not on facts. Mr. Haggen or any other person
ought to become familiar with the facts before
making such wild assertions.
NO DISGRACE
The Hearst papers would make an issue of the fact that
tlie new Episcopal Bishop of New York was born in Eng
land. They might he able to jump on poor old Bill Shakespeare for the same reason. Lots of worse things can happen to a man than being born in England. We can't all lie
native sons of guns. The fact that a man wns born in the
old York Instead of the new doesn't necessarily disqualify
him from elucidating the Scriptures to the Gothamltes.
Being born in England is not considered disgraceful in any
place outside of Stuttgart. In fact, there arc a lot of folks
who are rather proud of It. And England has produced
some blooming good bishops, don't you know?—Los
Angeles Times.
CRIMINALITY OF CHILDREN
It Is very startling to learn that in 1917, 1918 and 1919
more than twenty per cent, of the indictible crimes committed in Canada were committed by children under sixteen years of age! The figures have been compiled by the
Dominion Bureau of Statistics, which adds that since 1910
the boy criminals in Canada have increased by nearly three
hundred per cent. The war may have been largely to
blame: it is customary to blame the war for everything.
At the same time tlie freedom from parental control and
tlie general atmosphere of force which the war engendered
would he sure to have its evil effects upon the juvenile
mind. Others will lind the cause in thc rise of the moving-
picture, with Its constant suggestion of tlie nobility of the
man who makes a living by fraud and violence. Whatever
the reason the fact remains and it is one wliieh should
engage the very earnest attention of all. Something must
certainly be done to put an end to such an intolerable
state of affairs.
NEW ZEALAND'S MANDATES
As our readers are aware, we have no great enthusiasm
for New Zealand having been given tlie mandate over
Samoa. Our experience with the Cook Islands suggests
that ihe Dominion lias not yet reached the stage at which
it can adequately control overseas possessions or depeiv
denotes, and does not offer much ground for belief or hope
that a larger measure of success will attend our handling
of tlie much more difficult problems presented by Samoa.

DOING NOTHING
In my opinion tlie want of occupation is no less the
plague of society than of solitude. Nothing Is so apt to
narrow the mind; nothing produces more trifling, silly
stories, mischief making lies, than being eternally shut up
iu a room witli one another, reduced :\% tho only alternative
to lie constantly I waddling. When everybody is occupied,
wc only speak when we have something to say; but when
we are doing nothing, we are compelled to be always talking; and of all tho torments thnt is tlie most annoying and
tiie most dangerous,   Rousseau.
According to newspaper dispatches the attitude of tlie
Boor landowners of Smith Africa played nn unexpected
part in tlie signal victory for Gonoral Smuts and British
connection, not thai thoy love the llritish more hut that
thoy highly value the absolute security of land tenure
under Britisli institutions. The Boer does not relish the
chance of being disturbed in the secure and peaceful pursuits of agriculture. General Hertzog is a revolutionary,
and revolutionary measures always aro dangerous. No one
yet has been capable of determining what the ultimate outcome of them may lie. The world has had many examples
of the truth of that statement. Hence the land-owning
Boers are satisfied with their present condition under British rule, and they are not going to run the risk of any rash
experiments. Such an attitude ought to dispose of tiie
secession issue, if not for all time, at least for as long a
period as it is necessary to contemplate.—Colonist.
The American law makers have not yet plumbed the
depths of absurdity into which they have thrown them
selves by voting for tlie prohibition of all traffic in alco
hoik: liquor. We recently noted a new proposal for legis
lation lo prohibit Uie sales of hops because they are used
in tlie manufacture of fermented liquors. They might just
as well interdict tlie sale of raisins, apples, peaches and the
majority of fruits, because it Is certainly exceedingly easy
to extract a very heady alcoholic drink from them. When
legislators start on lbc wrong tack they are soon brought
to a full stop by the exigencies of logic.—L'Evenement, Que.
One out of nine travelling salesmen in the United States
gets divorced, said Professor Hudolph IM. Binder, head of
Ihe department of sociology at New York University, in nn
interview recently reported, as against one out of 92
farmers. As to the geographic distribution of divorce, the
west leads all oilier sections in the number of divorces
while the north central, south Atlantic and north Atlantic
districts follow in the order mentioned. Japan grants a
greater number of divorces than any other nation in the
world. Childless couples are divorced more frequently than
those having children.

SCHEME TO TURN ROOTS
AND STUMPS INTO MONEY
Land clearing in British Columbia
will be changed from an expensive to
a profitable operation it expectations
of an enterprising citizen of the province is realized. He proposes to distribute small sawmills among settlers
with which to cut stumps and roots to
certain dimensions, tlie material to he
used iii tlie manufacture of certain
wooden wares Hint arc in constant de
mand. It is said tliat stumps and
roots of certain trees have a beautiful
grain and "take a magnificent polish.
A good-sized stump when sawn to
sizes required by tlie market will
realize big sums. Representatives of
tlie provincial government are conferring with the promoter of this method
of stimulating land settlement. In
Eastern Canada in recent years owners
of old apple orchards have found it
highly profitable to cut down their exhausted trees and sell tlie stumps .and
largest roots, for which there is an
active market. The apple tree wood is
used in the manufacture of certain
tools, such as hand-saw handles and
planes.
"Yes," said the eminent specialist to
Ihe poor mnn who had called upon him,
"I will examine you carefully for fivo
dollars."
"All right, doctor," said the man,
resignedly. "If you find It I'll give
you half."

Haunted Egyptian Necklace
Widespread Interest has been
aroused by the story of a mysterious
necklace In the hands of a Edinburgh
lady in the course of the spring and
summer of last year.
Various accounts of the necklace
and the extraordinary manifestations
which have been associated with it
have appeared, but there has been no
adequately full and consecutive account of what actually took place. The
writer, says J. W. H. ill an Edinburgh
paper, is In the position to give a
fairly full and complete accouut of the
necklace and the experiences associated with It.
It is a story of the most extraordinary character, and may well take a
prominent place lu the history of psychical research. The' manifestations
might also be regarded as incredible,
or due to some form of obsession, but
for thc fact that the investigators, who
are personally known to the writer,
are men and women of high standing
in the community, accustomed to scientific observation and ot Irreproachable
character and capacity.
The necklace Is of a common Egyptian type. Iu the view of expert Egyptologists, It is probably three thousand
years old. Thus, It belongs to the
Egyptian period following shortly after
the time of the Israelites' captivity. It
was found by an Edinburgh lady residing in Egypt, and belonging to a well
known family in an ancient tomb between Heliopolis and Cairo. She sent
It as a Christmas present iu 1913 to an
Edinburgh lady friend, who had been
visiting Egypt the previous year.
The Edinburgh lady placed the necklace, which was of the nature of a
curiosity rather than something of any
great intrinsic value, in the lowest tier
of her jewel case. There it remained
for some years, and she had forgotten
all about It. In the Interval the owner
had been serving in France, aud the
Jewel case was left at home in a safe
place. It was not until the 7th of
April, 1920, that the lower part of the
jewel case, containing some old-fashioned gold ornaments and the necklace was again opened. The owner
wanted the gold ornaments to give
away, and on removing these she
found the forgotten necklace.
Tlie Clutching Hand.
What followed upon this may be
gathered from a careful record made
at the time. The owner of the necklace, considering that it was of no
value, flung it Into a small waste-paper
basket in her room along with some
torn-up letters and forgot about It.
About 10.30 the same evening, on
going to bed, she stooped to pick up
her bedroom slippers, which were on
the lowest shelf of her boot stand,
close to her writing-table, beneath
which lay the waste-paper basket.
In stooping, she rested her hand on
the back of a chair. She was thereupon startled by the impression that a
hand had been laid on her. She instantly withdrew her hand. There
was nothing to account for the strange
Impression. Convincing herself that
she had been under the influence of
some hallucination, she went to her
dressing-table and sat down to read.
She had sat thus for some little time
when a noise in the waste-paper basket
attracted her attention. It was a
rustling noise such as might have been
made by a mouse. She listened intently and the noise continued.
Certain that there was a mouse at

the basket, she walked to the writing
table and lifted the basket, expecting
the mouse'to run away. Nothing, however, appeared. Returning to the
dressing table she resumed her reading. The rustling noise continued
louder than ever. In spite of ber failure to And any trace of it at her first
attempt, she was certain that a mouse
was inside the basket and was endeavoring to escape. She therefore
rose and lifting the basket carried it
to the lamp at the dressing table.
There she looked Inside; and seeing
no mouse began to pfttk out the pieces
of the torn-up letters.
Her eyes then fell mi the necklace,
and for the first time the idea crossed
her mind that this might be tlie cause
of the phenomena—the clutch of a
hand aud the noises. Tlie feeling came
as a sudden Intuition. Till that moment she had been quite oblivious of
the presence ot the beads.
Under the influence of this suggestion she began to feel a- little creepy
and at once carried the basket and
beads to an adjoining box room, where
she deposited them, locking the door.
She did not sleep well that night.
Next morning the lady, who is of a
practical turn of mind and not in any
way fanciful, felt diffident about mentioning such an unusual story. She
kept silent about It until luncheon,
when she briefly indicated what had
occurred to other members of the
family, who heartily laughed at her
narrative.
The Necklace Rescued.
A brother, however, felt sufficiently
Interested In the necklace and his sister's account of what had occurred to
formed that It had been thrown out.
Fortunately a servant who had beeu in
Egypt and had recognized the necklace as being Egyptian, had retrieved
It from the refuse heay and had It In
his pocket. He thereupon handed it
over.
Upon this, some remarkable occurrences took place, while the necklace
was In the custody of the lady's
brother. These are clearly set out in
a careful reeord made at the time of
the manifestations.
The first record of experience Is that
of 8th April, and is as follows:
Went to bed between 11 and 12
o'clock. Laid the necklace on the pillow, about a foot behind my head and
on my right side. Lay awake for some
time as usual, and just as I was going
to sleep heard and felt a thud on the
pillow just about where the necklace
lay. I was instantly on the qui vive,
but did not move.
Noted that thud was exactly as If
some one with a light hand had made
a vigorous grab at the beads. Nothing further for some time.
Then different taps on the walls at
different points, all near the celling as
far as I could judge; sometimes lso
lated taps, sometimes two or three In
succession. Never heard these noises
before. Heard noises made by pipoB
in bathroom next door, but these quite
different. >
Wardrobe gave a very loud crack,
which I had never heard it do before—
perhaps never noticed, but think otherwise. Knocks continued and kept me
from sleeping.
While laying awake heard necklace
rustling behind me. Sound not of
clinking glass but of a movement on
the pillow. Listened to this for some
time.
Lifted beads and replaced them. All
sounds continued.
Became tired of it and endeavored
to sleep but was unable to do so.
Clock struck two, and being anxious
to get some sleep got up and flung the
necklace over the staircase. Thereafter slept undisturbed.
The Bed Was Shaken.
The narrative of what took place
on the following night is as follows:
Went to bed after eleven. Beads as
before on the pillow. Was very sleepy
after long day and slept at once.
Woke at 2 a.m., bed shaking from
side to side. First Impression was
that someone was trying to rouse me,
just as It be had grasped side of bed
and was jerking It. Felt three distinct
shakes after being really awake: there
must have been several before. Made
sure I was not shaking myself.
Lay quite still, and then felt as If
someone were bending over me.
sensation something akin to that described as "pins and needles" down
right side of face, neck and shoulder
Nothing to be seen.
The necklace rustled as on previous
night. Turned to right side and took
tho necklace In right hand, so that
nothing could happen without my
knowing It, and tried to fall asleep.
While dozing, felt It movig in my
hand. Made sure that my hand was
not moving; then suspected warmth
affecting glass. Therefore laid It
again on pillow. Rustling resumed
also taps on walls. Became bored and
fell asleep.
A Sound of Sobbing.

the next night (Saturday).   The In-

and placed the necklace as before on
the pillow.
What happened ia thus described.
Fell asleep at once, hut was awakened at 4 a.m. with bed shaking as ou
Friday, but not so viol* i tly.
Taps on walls again. Heard sound
near; window as if someone were sobbing quietly and faintly. This lasted
about 30 to GO seconds, Afterwards
fell asleep.
On the following Sunday and Monday the investigations were continued,
but nothing happened. The investigator was awake frequently both
nights but heard no sounds of any
description. On the Monday nighi
the beads had been placed in a tin box
on the table, with tlie lid open. The
slightest movement would have been
audible but nothing wasjieard.
An interesting corroboration of the
mysterious sounds was furnished over
a month later. It (ben transpired that
a neighbor had been disturbed on the
night of April 8 by noises on the wall,
caused, she thought, by driving tacks
into the plaster. She had complained
at the time of what she considered
thoughtlessness on the part of the individual on the other side of the wall.
The fame of the necklace spread far
and wide and numerous requests
reached the owner for the loan of it.
Letters were also received from
Egypt, India and South Africa, while
much interest was aroused in London
by the continued manifestations. All
this occasioned so much trouble and
worry to the brother of the lady win

until last year.
The owner, towards the end of last
June, met in Edinburgh a lady whom
she used to be acquainted with some
years previously. Tbe latter bad been
reading about the necklace, and
stopped the owner to speak about it.
She informed her that the lady iu
Cairo who had sent the necklace
which is tho subject of this article, to
this country, bad also sent at the same
time a necklace apparently similar to
herself.
The'recipient of the other necklace
stated that since the day she received
it bnd luck seemed to have fallen persistently on her household: Ono thing
after another had occurred in sucli extraordinary sequence tliat those In the
household began somehow or other lo

PERFORMANCES OF PUREBRED DAIRY CATTLE
British   Columbia   Cows   Take
Dominion Honors in   Jersey
and Holstein Strains.
A Holstein cow recently eclipsed all
Canadian records for yield of milk and
percentage of butter-fat, according to
Report No. 12 issued by the Dominion
Department of Agriculture. This report gives the records of performance
of all pure bred dairy cattle from April
1, 191!), to March 31, 1920, Also the
standards of every breed, and a list
of hulls qualified for registration. The
names of the cows are given, and also
those of the sire and dam, the owner,
breeder, age at test, date of calving,
production required, total production,
percentage of fat, tlie number of days
milked, and, in the majority of cases,
the number of times milked per day.
The last mentioned matter having
lately been a subject of experiment at
tlie Ontario Agricultural College, and
Macdonald College, Quebec, it is interesting to note thnt many of tho
Ayrshires were milked three times a
day and some of the HolstefiiB four
times. Of the Ayrshires the greatest
yield for the year is credited to a
mature cow owned hy the Nova Scotia
Agricultural College, Truro, und tho
best percentage of butter-fat to a cow
owned In Prince Edward Island,
High Itccorris for 1). C. Cows,
Of the Holsteins the record yield for
the year is credited to a matron owned
by the Colony Farm, British Columbia,
and the best percentage of butter-fat
to another British Columbian. Of the
Jerseys, the first In point of yield is an
animal owned at Edgefield, Out., while
the best percentage of fat is attributed
to a three-year-old owned in British
Columbia.
It is possible that the same number
of players will be missing in this
week's line-up for the local team.

studio In New York from minute
photographs.
Several hundred "extras," two jazz

corps of waiters from a Broadway
"lobster palace" were engaged for the
occasion. Some of the most famous
actors, actresses and public personages of New York were present when

THE
EXCHANGE RATE
IV.--What Controls It?
IN No. II. of this series, we explained why
the foreign dollar is a commodity and not
money, and in No. III. the inconvenience of
settling international debts in gold, which
led to the system of Bills of Exchange
described below.
Sales of exported goods are usually settled for by the vendor drawing a draft on
the purchaser for the sum due, which draft
the vendor deposits in his bank.
His banker forwards the draft (in such
a transaction called a Bill of Exchange) to
the nearest money market, probably, in the
case of an American, to New York, Chicago
or San Francisco, and in the case of a
Canadian to Toronto or Montreal. To do
this it is not necessary for him to insure
letter or even to register it, for if the bill
were lost, he could get a duplicate.
For instance, if the vendor lives in the
United States, he will offer the Bill of Exchange for sale, say, in New York, as Canadian funds, because the draft is payable
in Canada.
There may be several persons in the market who want to buy Canadian money
to pay for goods bought from us. If there
are many such persons and only a few
drafts on Canada are being offered, the bidding is keen and the price obtainable for
draft goes up.
There may be several persons in the market who want to buy Canadian money to
pay for goods bought from us. If there are
many such persons and only a few drafts
are being offered, the bidding is keen and
the price obtainable for the draft goes up.
If, however, there are few bidders and
many drafts, the holders of the drafts may
be willing to lower the price they ask in
order to obtain their money at once.
This brings us to the influence of the
balance of trade on the rate of exchange.
We will deal with this aspect of the subject next week in No. V. of the series.

Dorothy Dalton Has the Leading
Role in Mlystery Photoplay
Showing on Monday.
The latest Dorothy Dalton picture,
"His Wife's Friend," wlll be the attraction at the Ilo-llo Theatre on Monday.
It was produced by Thomas H. Ince
from the popular novel "The White
Rook," and is a story in which mystery is said to be entertainingly
mingled with a love and adventure
theme. The plot centres around the
queer disappearance and death of Sir
Robert Grimwood, who Is married unhappily to a much younger woman
and spends most of his time sluing
alone and working out Intricate problems In his favorite game, chess. After
a game with a man whom he suspects
of being lu love with Lady Marion, the
youthful wife of Sir Robert ls found
drowned ln a lake on the neighboring
estate. The action thereafter leuds to
India during the uprising of the natives and back again to England,
where the mystery ot the nobelmau's
death Ib startllugly cleared up.
"SMILES"
Jane and Katherine Create All
Kinds of Fun in This Wm.
Fox Comedy.
Jane and Katherine Lee, those two
little William Fox funmakers, are
coming to the Ilo-llo Theatre ou Friday next In an uproarious comedy
called "Smiles."
The picture opens with a surprise,
and the odd situation Is followed Immediately by showing Jane and Katherine washing a dog In a bathroom.
Their father ls at the front and they
are being cared for by an housekeeper.
When the aunt sends for them the
housekeeper feels that a burden is
taken off her shoulders. But Instead
of sending them in the usual way she
economizes by putting parcel post
stamps on them and turning them over
to the postman. The housekeeper refuses to pay postage on the dog; but
the wise little animal hurries to the
station, where Jane secrets him In the
parcel bag In which she has been
placed.
The fun ls rapid from that point on.
The story has a touch of war in it, and
Jane and Katherine do their part in
helping to get spies and ln bringing
their aunt and her sweetheart together. It s a fine picture, full ot fun
and frolic.
Conger-eels grow to enormous size
in the pearl lagoons of the Pacific. The
divers must keep a close watch for
them. The eels lie in holes and
crevices of the coral and dart their
heads out to seize a passing fish, or
the wrist of a diver. When the conger's jaws close on wrist or ankle, the
diver needs a cool head; no amouut of
struggling will pull the eel from his
hole. The diver must wait quietly until the conger relaxes his jaws preparatory to taking a better grip. Then
a quick wrench and the man ls free.
Without any preliminaries, says the
"Photo-Era," the customer announced
that the camera waB "no good" and
she wanted her money back. The
clerk asked It she happened to have
some pictures with her that might
show the trouble. She produced twelve
prints that showed the large, distorted
face of a girl. The clerk examined
them and the camera, and was frankly
mystified. He finally asked her how
she held the camera when she made
the exposures. She demonstrated.
She had held the camera in her hands,
pointed upward, to take snap-shots of
her own face!
Heal Punishment.
"Perhaps the penalty for bootlegging
is not severe enough."
"It Isn't," replied Uncle Bill Dottlc-
top. "A bootlegger ought to be made
to dring his own llcker."
A man shouldn't be discouraged because he Is unable to convince his wife
that she Is wrong. With all his wisdom Solomon never did anything like
that.
Teacher (after lesson on snow): "As
we walk out on a cold winter day and
look around what* do we Bee on every
hand!"
Pupil: "Gloves."
Johnny Smith had got into his first
pair of long "pants," an exchange says,
and felt his new importance. He answered a ring at tne door. "Is Mr.
Smith in?" inquired the stranger. "1
am Mr. Smith," Johnny announced
without a smile.
