FORTY-FOURTH YEAR—No. 30.
CUMBERLAND, BRITISH COLUMBIA        FRIDAY,   JULY   24,   1926.
SUBSCRIPTION PRICE: TWO DOLLARS PBR ANNUM
C.P.C. LEAGUE
AVERAGES
FOR SEASON
Compiled By Alex. S. Denholme
Official Scorer
When Deacon, of the Powell River
team raced back and grabbed Dave
Richard's drive when the papermak-
era were here on July 12, he not only
aavcd the game us it occurred in the
ninth inning with Dave Hunden on
second base but he also cinched the
Individual league batting honors for
himself. But two meagre points
separate them and It Is worthy ol
note that both fattened their averages
in the last two league games when
hits were few and far between. Tucker James, of the home club, is tho
leading lnflelder by virtue of having
accepted twenty-three chances without error. Johnny Cummins, of
Courtenay, is undoubtedly the niftiest
base runner as he still heads the
league with four pilfered sacks despite
the fact the Powell River and Cumberland players have participated In
more games.
In the team averages Cumberland
la the leading club. An average of
two errors In a half dozen games Is
excellent fielding for a ball team ln
thla neck of the woods. The 2-0 victory
of Powell River over Courtenay at
the paper city on May 24th ls not Included In the records. Neither are
the averages of players who participated In less than three games.
The complete table of averages will
be found on page 5 ot this paper.
APPOINTED PRINCIPAL
OF MINTO SCHOOL
Miss Margaret MacNaughton has
received the appointment as principal
of the Minto Public School. Miss
MacNaughton, who is the daughter of
Mr. and Mrs. R. MacNaughton of
Minto, is very well known in this
city, having received her High School
education here. Her teaching eertilieate was obtained at the Provincial
Normal School, Victoria.
With TheCityFathers
Bills and accounts contracted by
the City.Council during the past two
weeks amounted to approximately
three times what they were the proceeding two weeks, tiie Increase being largely due to an amount of
143.25 paid the Cumberland and Union
Water Works for water and hydrant
rents.
Following are Items that comprised
the total amount of $271.61; Cumberland and Union Waterworks, 143.211:
J. Bartoldi, 1 day's work at $430; W..
Hudson, 2V6 days' work $10.76; D.

Cooper. Hi day's work $6.45; A. MacKinnon, sanitary buckets, $10.80;
Cumberland Electric Light Company,
$27.56.
WARNING
Several Orchards in town have been raided during the
past week by some party or parties unknown. Evidently taking advantage of the absence of the owners
at the beach, two orchards were entered on Thursday
evening. The matter, we understand has been placed
in the hands of the police, and, in future, anyone
caught will be severely dealt with.

6 Months Of Year!
The medical health officer's report
for the first six months of the year
1925 waa submitted to the city council at their regular meeting on Mon-
da.. evening.    It read as follows:
Board of Health.
Cumberland, B.C.,

Thc following ls lbc health report
for the first six months of the year
1925.
Two cases of erysipelas developed

The council ordered the report received and field.
Local Board
May Control
Amateurs
All interested In amateur athletic sports are urged to attend a
meeting to be held In the Athletic Club this Saturday evening
at 7:30 o'clock sharp. Consider-,
tition will be given the proposal
to form a local hoard of the B.C.
Branch of the Amateur Athletic
Union of Canada.
A Cumberland resident, prominent
In sports, is In receipt of a letter from
J. P. Watson, President of the B.C.
Branch of the A.A. U. of C. asking for
advice regarding the formation of a
Local Board of the Amateur Athletic
Union of Canada In the central part
of Vancouver Island. Hence the
reason for the above meeting.
Mr. Watson Is of the opinion that
such an organization would be of
i considerable benefit and help to local
I clubs ln the promotion and regulation
I of their different athletic activities
I He says: "You would have the in-
I tluence of a Dominion-wide orgnniza-
I tlon supporting you and this connec-
I tlon would no doubt be the Incentive
| to aim for Provincial and perhaps National championships. We already
have had registration of athletes In
Imaebnll. basketball, swimming, boxing, cycling, etc.. from Duncan, Lady-!
smith. Nanaimo, Courtenay, Cumber- j
land and Alberni, and I believe this
could be the foundation of an organization embracing all or most of these
places.
"I am contemplating a trip up the
Island as far as Nanaimo within the
next week or so, and, If lt ia the opinion that a Board could and should
be formed. I will arrange to be there
to assist."
The formation of such a Board Is
an excellent Idea and all local sporting organizations should lend their
support at the meeting.
ROOF FIRE CAUSES
SOME EXCITEMENT
The lunch hour yesterday was not
the pleasure It usually Is for the members of the local volunteer lire brigade, for half of them were still silting at Ihe table when they were unceremoniously called away by the Insistent pealing of the fire bell.     A
small roof fire at Ihe horn eof Mr. uml
I Mrs.  James  Potter. Allan  Ave.,  was
the cause of all the excitement.     Il
j was  quickly extinguished    by    Hilly
i Woods  who first noticed  the flames
| front thc cub of No. 20.      Both fire
I trucks turned oul hut Ihelr assistance
wns not needed.
Results of the June High School Entrance examinations were announced
last evening and It Is pleasing to the
teaching staff of the local school, and
the trustees as well, to And that only
three failed out of a class of twenty-
eight. Twelve of these were recommended by their teachers and the remaining thirteen, excluding the three!
failures, passed with very good marks.
Norma Parnham heads the list with j
a total of 355 marks out of a possible J
600.
The trustees this morning were
more than pleased with the pass list
and were loud ln their praise of the
work done by Principal Apps, Miss T.
A. Gallivan and Harold E. Murray,
the teachers.

MATRICULATION RESULTS
FOR   CUMBERLAND   HIGH
Her Excellency, Lady Byng. received upwards of two hundred returned
veterans nnd their famlles on Thursday afternoon last in tlie spacious
grounds of Beaufort House, the residence of Lieut.-Col. C. Villiers. On
the main drive, under the shade of two
beautiful maples, Her Excellency
awaited the veterans and their families with Miss Satulforii. Col. Chaplin, Captain Chaplin. A.D.C., and Lieut
Col. Villiers In attendance. Mr. J.
Walton and Mr. Fraser Watson of the
local Branch of the Great War Veterans were also in attendance and Introduced the visitors as they arrived.
Her Ecellency shook hands with all
ihe visitors, enquired Into the state of
their health, the nuture of their occupation and by her charming manners
and ready wit, endeared herself in the
hearts of her guests.
Mighty and Impressive appeared the
Beaufort range of mountains (rom the!
lawn  where tea  was    served,    their:
glacier-scored and snow-capped peak**!
obscured In fleecy clouds.     Member's
of the Ladies' Auxiliary of the Great,
War Veterans assisted at  the tables, I
whilst Mr. Thomas Graham and  Mi'.'
W.  A.  Owen   busied   themselves   III
serving Ices to the large number of
guests, many of   whom   came   from.
other portions of the Comox Valley.
The Cumberland City Hand, under Mr.
W.   Jackson,  rendered   several   well-
knowu   selections   during   the   afternoon,      Messrs  George  ond  Charles
O'Brien attended to the wants of the
veterans in the way of cigars, cigarettes, etc.
This morning, just before Her Excellency. Lady Byng left for the Capital City, tlie Ladles' Auxiliary and the
local members of the Great War Veterans presented a beautiful bouquet of
flowers to the distinguished visitor.
The subject of repairing Dunsmuir
Avenue was again it sore spot with
lhe city council at their regular meeting Monday evening. Alderman. Potter, chairman of the Board of Works,
was emphatic In his statement that to
let the avenue go longer without any
work being done on It would cost
more In the long run than if the neces
sary repairs were made at the present moment. The city had, he said,
27 barrels of tarvia on hand and the
present hot weather was causing them
to leak so that If the tarvia were not
used very soon there would be none
lo use at all. Such being the case
the council decided that the work be
done without delay, commencing at
First Street and continuing down the
avenue until nil the tarvlu Is ued.
Reports of Committees
Under this heading the chairman of
tlie Hoard of Works reported that his
jtaff had been busy cutting weeds and
thistles throughout thc city and had
completed the work of spreading road
oil on Maryport and Windermere
Avenues. There had not been quite
enough oil. he said, to make a satisfactory job on the first mentioned
street.
Alderman Jeffrey drew the attention
of the meeting to lack of facilities for
spraying water on the boulevard at
the lower and of Dunsmuir Avenue,
and as n result the grass and trees
ther<> were beginnlg to show the effects. Mayor Parnham suggested
that an attachment for the Are hydrant he secured and this will probably be done.
For the lire wardens Alderman Led-
Ingham reported the drowning of one
of the lire department's most prominent members -Harry u, Conrod—and
made a motion that a letter of con-
ilolenee be sent the widow. The city
clerk was Instructed to nttend to this
matter.
Samuel Cameron, of Bevan, and D.
Hurling, of Cumberland, had letters
liefoi-e the council. Both gentlemen
wanted to secure soldiers' houses but
until one of these Is vacant nothing
ct... be done lu the matter.

That Glorious Naval Epic Produced by the British Navy
I COURTENAY, July 21.—At the City
, Hall on Monday night all the city
I fathers were in their seats with the
i exception of Alderman H. Cooke, who
I ls holiday-making at the Campbell
Lakes. A communication from the
I Provincial Government pointing out
[ thut no parking of cars Is allowed on
1 any travelled portion of the Island
] Highway within the city was discus-
< setl. It wus explained that the rule
Is applicable to the whole ot the Island Highway except certain portions
of it within thc cities of Victoria and
| Nanaimo.
There were two persons to wait up-
oii thc council with requests. Mr.
Edward W. Bickle. In the interests of
the Gaiety Theatre, made application
for a side-walk to be constructed
along the east side of Isabel Street,
which would give access to the theatre. Mr. Bickle offered to hear a
considerable portion of the expense.
The public works committee has the
mutter in hand nnd It is probable that
this much needed improvement will
soon be made. Mr. Bickle also made
application for a three-phase motor
lor Installation In the Gaiety Theatre,
which matter was referred to the Elec
trie Light committee. Mr. Joseph
McPhee was the other petitioner. He
complained that the government had
done nothing further to fill up the
depression opposite the building
which is at present used as a Post
Office. Alderman MacDonald le tn

That the City of Courtenay's tax

COURTENY, July 21.—City Clerk
Wood, who Is again In harness after
spending a vacation In the Beaufort
Mountains at the back of Comox Lake
with Mrs. Wood and the family, reports a very enjoyable trip. He Is
Impressed with the beauty of the
places he has visited, particularly
Elsie Lake. Mr. Wood says that the
grade over thc old Alberni trail is
quite moderate. There Is an enormous amount of the finest standing
timber awaiting lumbering operations.
It is very obvious that a road through
this part of the Island would be of
very groat benefit to the whole district nnd would make a beautiful
scenic drive for the attraction of
tourists until such time us the standing timber was cut.

"In the poor man's garden grow,
Far more than herbs and flowers,
Kind thoughts, contentment, peace of mind.
And joy for weary hours."
IT'S A One reason advanced for the in-
GOOD JOB, creasing number of divorces and
AFTER ALL the growing disasters to the ships
on the sea of matrimony is thai
women are coming more and more to rebel against
the drudgery of the kitchen sink. Our girls can
go into offices, stores and factories and earn more
than we pay our cooks and washer-women, hence
the question of help in the home is becoming
more difficult to solve.
Yet, after all, there is much satisfaction in a
luscious cherry pie or a well-browned roast put
on the table by the wife who has prepared the
food herself. She may burn her hands or spot
her clean kitchen apron, but if the man is the
right kind of a man he will praise her effort, and
if she is the right kind of a girl she will find her
reward in her husband's praise.
The wise mother teaches her girls to cook,
to buy for the house, and to run it smoothly and
economically, not so much for a career in life as
a protection. They may not have to do these
things but they should know when they are vwell
done.
This is the day of quick shifts; riches come
over night! and so the girl who starts her domestic life with no maid at all or a mild apology
for one in the shape of a little inexperienced girl,
may end with a housekeeper, a French chef and a
retinue of other servants. Then is the time for
her mother's teachings to show their valuo.
For, after all, there is "no place like home,"
and being queen in your own kitchen and mother
to your own babes, beats all the careers ever mapped out.
EFFICIENCY
LANDS ARE SUCCESS
think she is wise to get her skirts above the filth | CARIBOO GRAZING
and germs of the streets and she has a right to
give her limbs free play in walking. But sometimes we wonder if the girls of today are not
making themselves too cheap.
The other evening we chatted with a girl of
seventeen and this is what she said.
"Have you ever been in love, my dear?" we
asked this girl.
"Oh, a dozen times," she said.
"And are you going to marry ?" we wanted to
know.
"Really," she replied, "I haven't thought
much of that. Somebody will come along who
looks good, dances well, kisses like a sheik, and
hugs like a bear. If he's got enough money, I
suppose I'll marry him."
Cheap heart! Cheap love! Cheap ideals!
And yet she's a very nice sort of gin, but she's
just got the modern idea and the loveliness is
leaving her face and her body and her soul. Jazz
music, cheek dancing, promiscuous kissing, perchance a cigarette and p 'tting parties in a parked
automobile are cheapenii g our girls and the famous artist is right—mo-!crn love is making American women less beautiful.
VICTORIA,—The Minister of Lands,
Hon. T. D. Pattullo, has recently
taken a trip through the Cariboo and
Lillooet cattle-raising districts, and
on his return stated that the stockmen of the Interior are practically
unanimous in pronouncing the government's range policy a wise one.
Some complaints of administration
are being looked Into by him sinoo
his return, but these are thought lo
be largely duo to misunderstandings,
it has already been demonstrated,
the minister said, that grazing in
these districts can be made n commercial success, aud that there are
several other districts to which tlie
same applies. There Is no reason
wh.. hundreds of thousands of cattle
could not lie grimed lu the districts
visited by the Minister and the members of the Legislature who nccom-
panieil liim. the development of which
industry would bencllt the Province

several thousands at large. These

After all there is little real efficiency in this old world of ours
today.    In spite of all the efficiency experts that
were born during the World War, in spite of the
fact that a big automobile factory turns out a|be „„,, test vear li950 were Bhot A
machine a minute, there is little genuine efficiency | dinicuitv found in dealing with them
This is true because our efficiency today is all | la that tllere are ,.,ume,.0„b brnntol
stressed toward making money, while genuine horscs running loose with them and
efficiency should mean competency. If you wilH0, course ,llese cannot be destI.oml
look up the words you will see that there is a
marked difference between being efficient and being competent. The plasterer today is efficient
in seeing how much wages he can get for eight
hours spreading of mud, not how well he can
spread that mud. And the same thing is true of
all trades in a marked degree. We endeavor to
increase the output through speed and call it
efficiency, when really quality should be the end
sought by labor. As a result of this speeding up
to make money in the name of efficiency we are
headed toward over-production of inferior quality in many lines and that means an eventual
breakdown of the entire system. Perhaps this
efficiency bug is also responsible for our rapid
mode of living. We were goaded by the efficiency
experts during the war until we all got to running around in circles. The drives for war funds
were made under the demand that we give until
it hurts. Speed limits were raised for automobiles on the highway. The jazz orchestra speeded up their saxaphones until the graceful dance-
became a mad hop. Distances wcre annihilated
by airplane travel. We got to going so fast under the stinging whip of efficiency that we are still
getting out goods under pressure. Now we realize it would have been better if we had been
more competent and less efficient. Business
would have been better today if we hadn't been in
such a mad rush to speed up production and many
dead men, now sleeping in boxes under the ground
would have still been enjoying the sunshine if
they hadn't worn themselves out trying to be so
efficient.

With appropriate pomp and ceremony the Hon. W. 0. Nichol,
Lieut.-Governor of British Columbia,
and D. C. Coleman, Vice-President
of the Canadian Pacific Railway,
opened Crystal Gardens, Victoria—
the largest and finest salt water
swimming pool and amusement centre in Canada—recently.
The building takes the form of a
winter garden, sunlit by day and
glittering by night with an atmosphere heavy with the scent of flow-
pri and throbbing with music from
* string orchestra. Built on a two-
acre property, facing, the fragrant
gardens of the Empress Hotel, Crystal Gardens is of generous proportions, with lower portions in brick
and concrete, and superstructure of
steel «nd specially designed glass.
The interior is a huge conservatory
with vines and palms and plants
growing in abundance, nnd in the
centre the largest salt, water swimming pool on the continent.
To give a Roman Bnth effect, from
the peacock alley promenades and
dancing floors ubove, there nre concrete steps down to the landing of
the pool, which is llil) feet long, 40
feet wide and 9 feet deep at its
deepest point. Salt water is pumped

What was undoubtedly one of the |
moat closely contested baseball leagues ever conducted in the district!

won the C.P.C. League but the right.
to hold for one year the beautiful Uo-j

Thia magnificent cup was presented
to our league for annual competition
through the courtesy of the management of the Ilo-llo Theatre, Cumberland, and through the medium of
your valued columns we wish to express our sincere appreciation of their |
generous action. i
The senior clubs in the district have
striven to give the tans the beat]
brand of ball possible. It is encouraging to note, na in the case of
the donation of this trophy, these efforts have not gone by unnoticed.
In  repeating our  thanks  we  have
only further to add we hope It  will
be  competed  for  In  many  years  to
come and that It will be won in the
aamc atmosphere of good sportsmanship that It was won this year.

fallen to one-third of .what they were
in 1918. On tlie other hand, the
value of lands which have reverted
to the municipalities for non-payment
of taxes has Increased to $8,468,090.
The inspector finds that sinking
funds have improved during the year
by the process of marking up their
value to par, a policy by wlhch be
cannot sec that any good Is accomplished as it gives a misleading statement of .he year's business and places
a more or less fictitious value upun
the assets, he says.
In regard to municipal assessments'
the Inspector states that, these arc
admittedly beyond the value of the
lands and that in both urban and;
rural municipalities there are adjustments required. He does not see any
justiflcatlon for this in the argument;
that If values were low tax rates
would be high. The Inspector continues: I
"The assessor In returning his roll
to the council must furnish a statutory declaration lu the effect that he
has set out ln the roll to the best of
his judgment and ability the true
value of the lands and improvements
within the municipality, in accordance
with tlie .Municipal Act. I fear that
lu many cases this declaration ls too I
lightly taken; there Is probably no
Idea of doing anything of a fraudulent nature; it Is rather a misconception with regard to the best Interests
of tlie municipality."
The gross taxes levied In 1924 were!
$14,5.17,11111! ns compared with $14,458,-
471 tiie year before. Land taxes ac-'
counted for GO.nr, per cent of the total |
recelpls from public utilities 14.87 j
per cent and government grants 12 14 I
per cent. Of the expenditures 27.32
per cent went on scboolH. 18.211 on
debt, 14.22 on public utllitioa. and
10.50 on streets.
Dry Cleaning
Did you ever stop to figure that when you send a
suit or dress to the cleaners, you pay for the cleaning,
not barely removing the spots or patches of dirt?
This practice might improve the appearance of
your suit, but does not get to the real injurious particles of dirt and grease imbedded in the material.
In our method your clothes are washed in pure,
clear gas until every spot of grease and dirt is removed, then they are turned over to experienced hands,
shaped and pressed on one of the latest steam garment
pressers.

Conditions in the fruit areas of
British Columbia are reported as
satisfactory. Weather conditions
have been good and the trees are
healthy.
According to recent reports general cinditions in the Maritime
Provinces are normal. Potato seeding is about complete. Trees in the
Annapolis fruit districts are in good
shape and estimates point to a normal crop.
A consignment of lumber from
South Westminster, B.C., arrived re-
:ently at Dorval, Quebec, on the
Canadian Pacific lines, consisting of
twenty-nine logs of Douglas Fir,
iome of which were so long that
three flat-cars were required to
:arry them.
Field Marshal Earl Haig and
Countess Haig travelled through
western Canada to the Pacific coast
over the Canadian Pacific Railway
recently, after attending the conference of the British Empire Service League at Ottawa.
"Western Canada has never had
better crop prospects than which
exist now," stated ErneBt G. Cook,
of E. Cook, Ltd., Crop Insuranco
Co., of Moose Jaw, Sask., who recently spent two weeks at Banff,
after touring the West and studying crop conditions.
