FORTY-FIFTH YEAR—No. 16.
CUMBERLAND, BRITISH COLUMBIA FRIDAY, APRIL 16, 1926.
SUBSCRIPTION PRICE: TWO DOLLARS PER ANNUM
Tax Rate By-Laws Would
Set Geni!rov,nc>*Th$i i$*. 8 Mills
And School Rate At 9 Mills
IMPROVEMENT ASSESSMENT CUT 25 PER CENT
107th. ANNIVERSARY
OFFER TO SUPPLY
CITY WITH REFUSE
CABINETS REJECTED
Taxes this year in Cumberland will remain approximately
the same as last year, if the new Tax Rate By-Laws, which
passed their first, second, and third readings at Monday night's
meeting of the City Council, are adopted in their present form.
The school rate remains the same as last year—9 mills, but it
is proposed to increase the general rate from 15 to 18 mills.
This increase, however, is offset by the fact that the assessment
on improvements has been reduced twenty-five per cent, so that
the new rate will result in the taxes being materially the same
as last year. However, some important changes may yet be
made in the by-laws before they are finally adopted.
Addition to Traffic  By-Law
Alderman Parnham asked permission, which was granted, to introduce
at the next meeting an addition to
the present Traffic By-Law, designed
no doubt, to afford protection tor the
fire trucks when called out to answer
an alarm. It appears that the two
trucks, when called out last Sunday
to answer an alarm turned In from
No. 6 Jap town, were badly held up j
by two private cars, one on Dunsmuir i
Avenue and thc other at the entrance
to Jap town, and. It is believed that
Alderman Parnham (who ls also the
chief of the fire department) will endeavor, with his addition to the Traffic by-law, to prevent auch a recurrence. Both the firemen and the city
council were properly Incensed at
Sunday's Incident and both offenders
would probably have been proaecuted
had the city the power to do bo. In
future lt is intended to deal In no
lenient manner with such cases.
Union Lodge No. 11, J.O.O.F., will
celebrate the 107th. anniversary of
the order with a monster whist drive,
lunch, and dance to be held in the
Ilo-llo Hall, Cumberland, on Monday, April,26th, commencing at 8:00
sharp. We understand that a big
demand for tickets has been made
to the local order. Better get yours
while there are still a few left.

24th. MAY CELEBRATION
There wasn't a beautiful girl left

AT THE CITY HALL
The only communication read at
Monday's council meeting was from
a Victoria resident, Mr. J. Mortimer
Michaels, who made an unique offer
to the city fathers. Mr. Michaels, lt
appears, bas contracted to supply the
city of Victoria with refuse cabinets
and as these are now in the course of
construction, he wished to know if
the. city of Cumberland would take
some on the same terms as Victoria.
The cabinets, described as being line
looking and well painted, with a detachable canvass bag Inside ln which
the refuse ls dropped trough an opening lu the top of the cabinet, are
supplied to the city free of charge.
Mr. Michaels withholds the privilege
of painting advertising signs on the
cabinets and takes bis chances,
through these signs, of making or
losing money on the project.
The local council seemed to favor
the use of some such refuse containers   but   also   presented   some   very
Decided In Favor
Of. Nanaimo Club
The Dominion Football Association's Secretary handed down a ruling
on the Cumberland-Nanaimo Brackman-Ker Cup final dispute favoring
Nanaimo.
j Nanaimo defeated Cumberland In
the replay, but Cumberland protested
on the grounds that three Nanaimo
players were Ineligible because tbey
had been granted local transfers after
they had received district transfers,
claimed to be an error of procedure.
Tbe Upper Island body upheld the
protest and suspended the players In
question. Nanaimo appealed against
the protest being upheld and tbe BC.
F.A. decided to ask the D.F.A. for a
ruling as to procedure.
The D.F.A. secretary replied that
the secretary of the B.C.F.A. was
perfectly ln order In granting the
players local transfers after they had
received district transfers.
It Is quite possible that the local
executive will make a special appeal
to the' council of the D.F.A. as tbey
are of the opinion tbat the matter
in question is too big for one man
to make a decision; furthermore it

ENTERTAINMENT FOR
CALIFORNIA VISITOR
Mrs. A. Bono entertained at her
home last evening in honor of Mrs.
C. Mussatto, of Alameda, California,
who ls paying a short visit to friends
in this city. The guests were Mrs.
Cavallero, Mrs. Galiafrlo, Mrs. Bartoldi, Mrs. F. Scavarda, Mrs. L. Sca-
| varda, and Mrs. K. Weir. Excellent
refreshments were served and a
thoroughly enjoyable evening was
spent.
"Irene" was Broadway's pet—now
she's the entertainment darling of
the whole world.
In the presence of a majority of
the pupils and teachers of the Cumberland Public and High Schools, as
well aa members of the Board of
School Trustees and other Interested
on-lookers, Miss Kathleen Emily was
Wednesday afternoon presented with
a gold medal and chain, the fitting
reward for her recent prize-winning
essay on "Fire Prevention." The
presentation was made on the east
side steps of what is popularly known
as tbe "old school."
Shortly after 3:00 p.m. Principal
G. E. Apps called for order and proceeded to give a brief outline of the
essay competition. Every year tbe
Ancient and Honorable Order of the
Blue Goose, an organization of Are
underwriters In Vancouver, undertakes to hold thla competition amongst
the school children of British Columbia, the subject of each essay to be
"Fire Prevention." Tbe province Is
divided into nine districts and for
each one "of these districts there is a
gold medal for the writer of tbe best
essay. Vancouver Island has two
such districts—the City of Victoria
is one and the second takes in the
remainder of the Island, so that MIbs
Emily's teat of capturing first prize
In Buch a large territory was no mean
accomplishment. Cumberland haB
twice won this honor, Miss Claudia
Harrison being last year's winner.
Miss Emily is a pupil of Mr. H. E.
Murray ln Division 1 of tho Public
School, aB was Miss Harrison nt the
lime of writing her essay.
The next speakor was Mr. John
Cameron, deputy flre-inurshul! taking
the place of Fire-Marshall Parnham,
who was unable to attend the presentation. Mr. Cameron's talk was
certainly interesting and instructive,
giving as It did a resume of nearly
all the great conflagrations tbat have
visited the American continent in the
past fifty or sixty years and showing
that by the use of "common sense"
the majority of these would never
have happened and countless lives
would not have been lost. "In fact,"
he said, "there are many ways of
preventing fires but by far the greatest and most important is the sane
use of our faculties, or, in other
words, 'use common sense!'"
Mr. J. C. Brown, chairman of the
Board of Trustees, also spoke on
lines similar to those ot Mr. Cameron's, as well ns entering more fully
Into the reasons why the Order of
the Blue Goose held this annual competition. Before asking Miss Emily
to step forward, he expressod the
hope that next year Cumberland
would have two medal winners—one
each In the High and Public Schools.
The actual presentation was made
by Trustee Mrs. E. F. Banks and Miss
Emily, ln a few neatly-chosen words,
thankf' the Trustees and others
present tor IHelr Interest In her accomplishment. The gold chain accompanying the medal was a gift
from the local School Board.
"Irene" Is Coming

Theatre wishes to announce the fact
that they are showing the super-
production "Irene," featuring Colleen

Is one of the greatest comedy hits ot
the year and has taken every theatre
that It has been shown In by storm.
Only a week or so ago lt played at
the Capitol, In Vancouver, to record
crowds. It is not only humorous but
affords a great number of thrills, one
instance in particular being when the
heroine brings about tbo capture of
a mall robbery gang.
The movie, fans from Cumberland
and surrounding district will do well
to make a special effort to see both
of these remarkable productions and
will be assured of two evening's of
entertainment such as they have
never before received from the sliver
sheet.

Great enthusiasm is being shown

SIXTY MEMBERS
INITIATED WHEN
EAGLES OPEN HOME
The new lodge rooms and future
home of Aerie No. 1953 ot the Fraternal Order ot Eagles was officially
opened last Friday evening when
some sixty new members were formally Initiated. Assisting in this function were Mr. Bigelow, president of
the State of Washington, and Mr.
Laurie, Grand Worthy President and
Auditory of the Eagle Lodge ln B. C.
Mr.* Bigelow. who is a fine orator,
spoke on the early daya of the Lodge
and of the reasons why Eagles all
over thc world recognize and do honor to mothers on .Mothers' Day. A
goat from the Fraser Valley caused
mucli amusement at the meeting, being a gift to the local Aerie from Mr.
Laurie and Mr. Bigelow.
After refreshments were served the
following programme was rendered:
Songs—H. Reid, H. Jackson, Hugh
Bates, H. Gibson and T. Carney; Recitation .by Mr. H. Tappin; Speech by
Mr. J. Bradley and a banjo selection
by Mr. W- Jackson.
The following evening the Home
was thrown open to the families and
friends of the members and another
enjoyable time was spent. The same
program as above was repeated with
Mrs. A. Bradley assisting with several songs.
Sunday morning the officers of the
Cumberland Lodge, together with Mr.
and Mrs. Bigelow and Mr. and Mrs.
Laurie, paid a visit to Campbell River
where a new Aerie ia being formed.
Twelve new members were Initiated
there.
Tbo screen can offer no greater
evening er complete entertainment
than "Irene."
sending In a beauty which Boyd Just
saved under the bar. Tho visitors
next took a turn pressing, Russel
being magnificent lu feeding bis forwards, although Orr was not very
seriously troubled. End to end play
followed with tbe home team having
a slight edge. Tbc visitors, however,
were giving nothing away, their
halves playing splendidly, breaking
up all attempts of the home forwards
to get going. The local halves, Monaghan, Ferguson and Brake were
also doing splendid work. Monaghan
gave Brake u lovely pass, the left
half driving lt towards goal. Campbell followed the ball through and
had the satisfaction of taking Boyd
off his save, the ball just having
enough speed to roll Into tbe net
after thirty minutes of play. For
the next ten minutes the exchanges
were fairly even, but Fowler eventually got possession on the right,
tricked his man and with a magnificent shot hit the upright, the ball
re-bounding into play. During the
exciting play which followed in front
of goal, "Toots" Plump pounced on
the pig-skin nnd beat Boyd with a
great shot from close range. The
half ended with Cumberland leading
two goals to nothing.
Second Half
On the turn over, thc home team
had the better end to defend, having
the sun behind them. This, however-
dld not deter the visitors, who commenced to press Immediately. Seven
minutes from the start of the second
half, PurBs, outside right, crossed a
beauty, Rae connected and scored a
brilliant goal, reducing thc homesters
lead. After this success the visitors
went Into the game for all they were
worth and a real good battle ensued.
First one goal, then the other was
bombarded with North Shore having
a very slight edge. Campbell.. the
julor from Union Bay, was giving a
good account of himself and had hard
luck on two oi three occasions. Just
as soon as he can develop that quick
turn when in front of ihe goal there
no reason why he should not All
tho center forward position. During
a hot raid on tho North Shore goal
a corner was forced, which Fowler
placed square across the goal. Boyd
Intercepted and listed clear—a very
fine piece of work. At lbc olhcr end
the visitnrs forced a cornel*, thc home
defense having an anxious moment
or two. In thc last few minutes of
the half, thc visitors were swarming
round Ihe Cumberland goal and It
looked odds on a goal being scored
when a North Shore man banged the
ball towards goal. Orr saving magnificently und being loudly applauded
for his groat work. A few minutes
later the whistle sounded for full
time with tho ball in Cumberland
tenllory.
For the visitors, Boyd, I.nwn, Pow,
Rao and RubscII were good and for
the home team the three halves Btood
out above the rest of the eleven, although Orr played n good game and
hlB big save in the second half undoubtedly saved the home team from
dividing thc points.
Large Attendance At A.O.F. Banquet
A delegation of the ladles of "Court
Progress," A.OF., of Nanaimo, attended the meeting of "Court Cumberland," A.O.F. at the Fraternity Hall
last night and exemplified team work
and drill as utilised by Court Progress
in the initiation of new members.
It was a very Interesting and entertaining ceremony and was much appreciated by those privileged to wit-
neBB It.
After the meeting the visiting
ladles were invited to a banquet at

EDWARD W. BICKLE
FRIDAY, APRIL 16, 1926.
A BAD HABIT Almost daily we read in the
newspapers of some man or
woman who has sown worthless checks among
the merchants of the town and always spells
trouble. In our present-day method ol spending money by check there is a certain amount
of criminal activity resorted to by the confidence
man and the forger, but when you stop to think
of the great volume of business which is done
by check we are forced to admit that a large
majority of the people are honest and trustworthy To prove this assertion just add up
all the checks that come to you in a year anil
then subtract the number that have proven
worthless. But there really should be no bad
or worthless checks, no protest fees and no N.
S F " rubber stamp. People should guard their
checking accounts as they do their integrity and
honor. A checking account at the bank is a convenience, but no one should open one until he has
been taught something of the responsibility ot
business. Outside of the crook, who deliberately
forges, raises or issues a worthless check, the
trouble nearly always comes through carelessness, irresponsibility, thoughtlessness, or thc
desire to put something over. To many women
and inexperienced youth a bank account is an inexhaustible source of supply which the banks
should consider themselves lucky in being allowed
to handle. They write checks when they know-
there is not sufficient money to their credit to
meet the checks; they write them in the hope
that there will be money deposited by the time
the checks get back. Nothing hurts your standing with your banker like overdrawing your account by writing checks when you have not sufficient funds to meet those checks. Don't do it.
Don't ever do it. Keep your bunk balance on
the right side of the bank's ledger if you hope to
succeed and establish the confidence of your
banker.
THE FOOL    Every once in a while we hear of
some fool casting aside  a  loyal
home-making, hard-working wife for one of those
rouged and curled, perfumed and undressdd, drift
ing, empty-headed women who are always ready
to listen to whispered flattery. The girl who
helped the man in his days of struggle, who was
a real helpmeet and counselor when he needed
help, is cast aside, now that he has made his
pile, for a baby doll who has no real interest in
the man beyond what he can get for her. They
have written a song along this line, entitled "I
wish I had been satisfied with Mary," which tells
of the sad experience of one of these fools. There
are.no tragedies jn the grim game of life more
pitiful than the casting aside of a good woman
for one of these pretty playthings. Barrie once
wrote a play entitled "What Every Woman
Knows," which dwelt upon this fickleness of man,
this tendency to grow weary of the woman "'ho
has given herself for home and family, and the
male's weakness in chasing the lure of perfumed,
idle beauty. Many wives have lost out in the
struggle to keep their mates, many men have
gone astray only to wake up and cry out in anguish, "I wish 1 had been satisfied with Mary,"
This tendency is increasing as life grows easier
and money more plentiful, but the fools continue
to pay in regret and remorse.
THIS PROFESSOR DOES
NOT CARE TO HELP
OUR TOURIST TRADE

last Saturday has tbe .following to

R S. Baker, who is in Victoria today after a tour of inspection of

Campbell River.
BOTH GONE We make big strides in scientific
research, we advance in human
progress and we build wonderful labor-saving
machines and pleasure devices, but we do not
change the laws of the old book. The other
morning, just after midnight, the "gentleman
bandit and murderer" paid the penalty of his
wrong-doing. At the age of 38, just when life
should be opening its greatest opportunities, Gerald Chapman was yanked into eternity at the
end of the hangman's rope in Wetherefield Prison, at Hartford, Conn. His associate in crime,
"Dutch Anderson," was shot to death in an alley
some months ago. These men attracted nationwide attention by their crimes. For a time
they lived high and baffled the authorities.
They staged a number of hold-ups and got away
with it. Both were men of education and had
remarkable brains that would have made them
successful in almost any walk of life. They
•tarted wrong in their boyhood and were crooks
with police records before they were out of their
teens. But what did it get them? Both dead,
one at 38, the other at 44. "The wages of sin
is death." It has always been so. The smart
crook is eventually undone. It never has paid
and it never will pay. Think well, young man,
before you start on that downward path that
leads to the gallows or the electric chair. Chapman and Anderson were unusual criminals and
got away with it for awhile, but they are both
in their graves today when they might have been
living useful and happy lives.

not been heard of since, is such p
woman.
In chapter four of the Pathe Police
serial, "Into the Net," featuring Jack
.Mulli'iII and Edna Murphy and written by Richard E, Enrlght, Police
Commissioner of New York City, Mrs.
Fawcette is assigned a task by Dr.
Vlnlng which she is afraid to attempt
and yet dare not fail to accomplish.
This chapter of "Into the Net,"
showing nl the Ilo-llo Theatre' next

example of the manner in wblch detectives shadow a suspect. Bradley
Barker, as Bert Moore, follows every
move of Dr. Vlnlng, played by Frank I
Lacteen, but the doctor has been j
trailed before, ami lie cleverly turns
the tables, getting not only Moore,
but also Clayton  In his power.

out in good time and made a fast
run to No. 5 Jap town where a small
shack was on Are. This was under
control ln short order, no damage
being done.

The coming chapter of "The Scarlet Streak," an Adventure picture
featuring Jack Daugherty, which will
be shown at the Ilo-llo Theatre on
Wednesday and Thursday, bids fair
to be one of the moat gripping episodes yet seen, for at tbe end of tbe
last one the situation was left ao involved and "In the air" that followers are itchiag with eagerness to
know what has become of the star
reporter and ..is sweetheart, who
were last seen hurtling over a great
embankment in a speeding car.
No less compelling is the taut mystery of Crawford, Inventor of the
scarlet ray machine, who is known to
have been kidnapped by the henchmen of "the Monk," at whose rendezvous he Is being held, and yet an unrecognizable man, whose dead body
is pointed out by the crafty Count K
as being the remains of the ill starred Crawford, lies inert ln the laboratory of the Inventor.

his grandfather must first have died
to make bis wife a widow, and so
been disqualified from marrying his

"I
CHAPTER   HI
The Radio Robbery
ALWAYS wanted a string oi!
them beads! Hand 'em over!"
The man was covering the astounded dancers at the radio dance
is the masked girl stepped forward
und started to frisk them. Bhe advanced toward Ruth and laid a heavy
hand on the famous and valuable
Adams pearls.
lt was too much for Easton. He
made an involuntary movement toward  Ruth.
"Don't move there, bo! You heard
what I said. A fly can pump off thfe
gat if he ain't careful! ' The flashlight moved, "Now that diamond
too!"
Hasten perforce had to give up
tlon toward .Mrs. Adams and her em
The girl, directed, turned her atten
oralds, leaving nothing untouched be
fore she got to the diamond necklace
uf Mrs. Gerard.
The girl was now removing the
ring from Eas-uon's finger. He did
not turn his head but in the shadows
he could not see either Vira and Glen
or Rae and Jack Curtis.
The girl bandit looked about hurriedly, caught sight of Professor Varlo
and deftly removed the studs from
his dress-shirt, almost literally tearing them oul. Then she suddenly
turned and the two backed off the
porch to make their get-away.
"Now, freeze! Understand! Quick!
We got another engagement, too, tonight!"
The moment they were gone. Ken
took a step toward the  telephone.
A shot rang out, penetrating the
ceiling over his head.
It was only when the barking of
a deep-lunged racer was wafted in
over the howling of the storm that
Easton thought it safe to grab off the
receiver.
"Wires cut!" he exclaimed as he
uselessly jiggled the hook. There
was no response. "Ken. I think I
hear Laddie penned up in the cellar.
Release him. Take your flivver station wagon, get over to the Club and
get Kennedy and Jameson. Hick, you
can start to trace out the telephone
wires where they enter the house on
the  corner.   Find   the  break,   if you
"What's the matter with the lights
It was Glenn and Vira who had come
in.
"Where were you?' asked Eaaton.
"Just out on the porch—parked,
watching the storm, and the lights
went out. We thought we heard
voices."
"Very likely you did," returned
Easton dryly as Vira seemed suddenly to realize what had happened.
"It must have been some people
ln that yellow racei."
"And where were you?" shot out
Eaaton.
"Why, we were going to call up the
Parrs to get them to come over,"
chorused Rae and Jack Curtis. "But
it began to rain. We dashed out to
put up the windows, let down the
curtains on the cars. Got wet. but
we closed 'em up. Who was in the

can tell you as much as 1. We've
been robbed. I'm going to And thnt
hreak in Ihe feed wire if I can. restore the lights. I don't believe it
was the lightning did that.'*
Meanwhile Ken Adams and Laddie
in the station wagon had got through
the deluged roads to the club. The
first thing Craig and I knew about it
was when the boy burst in upon us.
"Uncle Craig! We've been robbed!"
You'll come with me. Walter?"
Craig turned to mo.
"Let me get a raincoat," 1 answered.   "I'll get yours, too. Craig."
What this case needed was action,
instant action. 1 was wasting no
seconds In getting Craig to the scene
of the crime.
It was a wild night for driving, and
Craig took   the  wheel.
Suddenly it seemed as if that flivver must lose its balance. A huge
high-hooded rarer, without lights,
was hearing down on' us. Kennedy
had turned In the nick of time. All
was well, but by mere luck.
"I'll bet that wns the yellow racer,"
piped Ken. "Rae and Jack said they
saw it at the place. They've robbed
some other place, I'll bet. Now they
are making a getaway.
Everyone at thc Gerard house was
talking at once as Craig. Ken and I
arrived. Easton had found thc break
tn the Hue and had spliced it. The
lights were ou again now.
Quickly Kennedy wont over the
facts of the case, getting tho stories
of Ruth, of his sister. M*rs. Adams, uf
Mrs. Gerard, of Vira and Glenn, and
nf Rae and Jack Curtis, as well as
Varlo, who, though he had not lost
much, was more glum at hts torn
and rumplod shirt ho*om than at the
loss of the diamond studs.
"What did sho look like?" nskod
Kennedy.
"I'll tell you this much." Easton
wns slow and deliberate as he answered.   "She  had   Ihe  hands  of  a   lady

and the voice of a gun moll!"
Kennedy smiled at the description.
While Kennedy was investigating tho
place ior possible clues, Easton had
joined the boys. A moment later he
returned.
"1 think wove got the telephone
connected up again. The break was
outside."
Good!" exclaimed Kennedy. "We
had better send out an alarm then for
the yellow racer. First i waht to
get the local authorities out watching every road that leads out, all tho
ferries across the sound." He turned
to Professor Vario. "Then I'll want,
you to take us over to tho Rockledge
Radio Station and well broadcast an
alarm over XYXZ."
"Be glad to do it." returned Vario,
I'll have them turn loose all the resources of the station.''
It was only a moment I'or Craig to
pass the word along tu tlle county
authorities and have them notify, over
the telephone, all the local constables.
Craig and 1, with Easton, Ken nml
Vario shot away through the howling storm to the great radio station.
Arriving at the great Rockledge
station, we proceeded at once to the
splendid broadcasting room with its
mechanical voice and sound reproducers, and  its library of records.
A few moments and Kennedy was
before the microphone, giving the
facts of the radio robbery to be listened in to by hundreds of thousands
of radio fans.
Though we did uot know it at the
time, among the interested listeners,
was a benevolent middle-aged gentleman who had been badly smitten by
the radio bug. He was not many
miles away." in Deer Park, and his
ollicial title as an amateur was K9D3.
Another station which was getting
it was Police Headquarters in New
York City.
Suddenly, in ihe midst of Kennedy's
elaboration of the events of the night
and the description of the yellow car,
there came a telephone call. Varlo
answered it.
"Something is interfering, Don," he
said to an assistant. New York has
just called up. tells me they are not
getting it very clearly."
The man bowed and retired. Kennedy proceeded with his alarm.
A moment later the man returned.
"It seems, sir, one of the oscillators has suddenly burned out. The
storm seems to have affected them
all. It will be morning bofore we
can get them in shape again.'
Kennedy was vexed. He hart been
talking into thin air most of the time.
What to do? Hero was a most unfortunate  accident  blocking us.
"I have It, Mr. Kennedy!" This
was Easton. "We'll have to go to the
Radio Shack." He loaned over and
whispered the rest to Craig.
Kennedy nodded. ,A few moments
later we were out In the storm again,
this time just Kennedy and Easton.
Ken and myself.
"If anything can do .il. now, it will
1a*9 my Cold Tube, the Evaasite Tube,"
ipried  Easton,  now  greatly  excited^
A few moments and we wore in tlie
HLback. Here at last, with Easfon
Evans' invention, we started again on
sending out our alarm, over tliis tube
that could be used both in li admitting and receiving, needing no oscillator tubes nor high frequency generator for transmission since the
Evansite element produced its own
electronic waves in the ether, receivable by any receiving set, even a
crystal set.
So' the message of alarm got
through to the radio fans of the
country in spite of every obstacle.
Meanwhile, the yellow racer was
disappearing up a dark country drive
to a private estate.
I was quite excited. ' Who was this
Radio robber? VVho headed this
Radio gang? Above all. who was
this mystery girl, "with the hands of
a lady and the voice of a gun moll?"

announced at the Public Works Department ln Victoria last week. Unless bad weather intervenes it will
be possible to start work then on

the Parliament Buildings last Friday.

officially, Includes tbe surfacing of
the Island Highway to Duncan, oiling of a strip south of Nanaimo, and
of a portion of tbe Highway in the
Courtenay district. In addition, considerable oiling will be carried out
on the Sooke Road and tributary
roads.
When this work is complete an
oiled highway will run from the end
of paving at Colwood to Duncan and
then there will be a large gap of un-
oiled road to a point south of Nanaimo. The first oiling to be carried
out on the Island Highway will be
from Colwood to the Shawnigan cutoff road. The roadbed here is in excellent condition as a result of oiling on two successive years and requires only a certain amount of
patching up, which will require little
time. The Public Works Department
will endeavor to interfere with traffic as little as possible during this
work.
DETOURS AlllUNIiKI)
The second stretch to be oiled Is
from the Shawnigan Lake cut-off to
Mill Bay, a portion of which has
been  oiled once,  but  requires  con
siderable improvement ln places.
While lt is under repair traffic will
be able to detour by the Shawnigan
cut-off road.
From Mill Bay the oiling will be
carried on to tbe Telegraph Road,
and while this work Is proceeding
motorists will be able to make a
detour to the east of Cobble Hill.
When the road ls being oiled from
Cobble Hill on to Duncan there will
be a detour by. the Cowlchan Station
Road.
TRAFFIC NOT TO SUFFER
In this way there will be little disruption of traffic, Public Works Department officials explained. From
Duncan north, however, there are
few detours available and no oiling
wlll be carried out there. It Ib planned to work (rom the end of the
paving at South Wellington for a
few miles south, thus cutting down
the gap between Duncan and Nanaimo. It is expected that the
Duncan-Nanaimo gap will be closed
up completely next year when more
money ls available.
The road between Courtonay and
Cumberland wlll be oiled this Spring,
and a few miles on the Island High-

plays the title role, makes her screen

moments of Intense excitement culminating in breath-taking thrills.
But its chief quality ls Its bumor,
which runs from subtle wit to broad
comedy.

ALL STEEL BODY
LOGICAL STEP IN
CAR OF FUTURE
The Dodge Brothers are known the
world over for one contribution of
Immeasurable Importance to the automobile Industry—successful production of the first passenger automobiles fitted with all-steel closed
bodies. The Importance of this
achievement will, in the future, be
regarded just as much an epoch in
tbe automobile Industry as the successful building of the first steel passenger coaches Is to railway transportation and all-steel steamships to
navigation. •
The Dodge Brothers, according to
Pidcock and McKenzie Motors, saw
clearly ttre need for the all-steel
motor car. "And now the whole
automobile Industry," says Mr. Mc
Kenzle, "baa begun to recognize that
the all-steel body Is the automobile
body of the future.
"It Is entirely logical to look to
Dodge Brothers motor car—on which
have been devoted over eleven years
of constant effort toward Improvement of this type—for the highest
development of the art of building
all-steel bodies. The low, graceful
all-steel closed bodies now displayed
stand out as the crowning achievement. The slender steel pillars afford breadth of vision heretofore uu-
approached in closed car bodies, yet
the strength and safety for which
Dodge Brothers motor cars have become so well known are unimpaired.
The method of welding and riveting
the pressed steel body frame mem-
bers and panels Into one well-braced
assembly Insures absolute freedom
from    loose    Joints    and    squeaks
I throughout the long life of the sturdy
| body.
"Substantial   reduction   in   weight.
I increased quietness, improved flexibility and smoothness, all are the
results of adherence to the policy of
constant refinement. AH these improvements have contributed toward
Increasing the safety, driving ease
and riding comfort of Dodge Brothers
motor cam. Adv't.
