Pythian Sisters Celebrate Anniversary
pjighteen years have passed since
the local order of Pythian Sister..,
Benevolence Temple No. !*, was organized in Cumberland aud the anniversary was fittingly celebrated on
Wednesday evening by a magnificent
banquet, followed by a social, in tho
K, of P. Hall. Members of the local
Knights of Pythias and those of the
Courtenay Lodge, together with their
wives, were the guests, nearly seventy-live in all sitting down at the
long tallies which were beautifully
decorated with various flowers ob-
tained from gardens right here in
Cumberland. Before commencing
supper, Mr. John Thompson, who acted us chairman throughout tbe even-
ingj asked everyone Lo rise and stand
Cor one minute in silent tribute to the
departed members of the lodge and to
Brother Charles Wilson who had
passed away the previous day at Nu-
uaimo. Following the minute silence "Praise God From Whom All
Blessings Flow" waa sung.
Never before, in the opinion of
those present, had they sat down to
such a spread of good things to eat,
and complimentary remarks for tho
Pythian Sisters.were to be heard on
all sides. Following the supper.
Chairman Thompson explained tbe
reason of it, stating that it ,wan tho
eighteenth anniversary of the Cumberland Temple and tbe Sisters had
taken this way of celebrating it. He
also gave a concise outline of the history of the Order in general and the
Cumberland Temple in particular
from  their beginning right down'to
the present day. Following tie'
chairman's remarks, M.E.C. Sister
Mitchell explained tliat although mn.
long a convert lo Pytbiunism she had
witnessed many instances where it
had and was doing good, not only in
Cumherland lint in other places as
well. Tiie real work of the Order,
she said, was in helping others and
in the past many times had com. to
light evidence of the fact that not
only were the members carrying out
this task as a body but individually
as well. That, she considered, was
true Pythianism.
Among the other speakers of the
evening were Sisters Horbury, Robertson, Thompson, Aspecy, Derbyshire, Stewart and Walker. Sisters
Thompson and Robertson were chartered members of tbe Tempie, the Cumberland chartered being granted on
the thirtieth of October, 1906. Brothers Keenan, Horbury and HobertHUii
also entertained, the former with a
song, "The Lea Rig," and the last two
wii/h speeches of thanks on behalf p.
the Knights of Pythias for the invitation to attend the anniversary celebration. Brother Cottel, a visiting
Knight from Nanaimo, ^also spoke,
while Norman Frelone and Udell
Francescini renedered a woll-pla/ed
piano and violin duet.
The remainder ol the evening was
spent in games of all sorts which
were greatly enjoyed, oue of them in
particular causing much excitement.
It was a spelling match between tha
ladies and men, the former winning
after ail hut one on each r.Me hod
been spelled down.
Cumberland   fans,   wbo   have   been
expressing    dissatisfaction    at     the
tameness which has been evident in
! the last, few  soccer    games • played
here,   were more than satisfied  with
the display put forth on Sunday last
when the local Rangers were at homo
to Nanaimo City In an Upper-Island
League   fixture,   which   was   won   by
the latter team by the odd goal,      It
was   one  of  the   most  exciting  aud
hard   fought   matches   that   we   have
had the privilege of seeing for some
time, but it was marred in the closing
minutes by a "free-for-all" in which
, Dicky  Slobbart,  Nanaimo's star cen-
■ Ler-half, wns the center of attract lon
| tor   several   fisticuff   oxperts  on   the
I Ranger team.     Many think that the
j latter were justified in their actions
| but, even so. there is no clause In the
i vssociation    Football    rules    which
; makes  fighting  on  the field of play
permissible.      Fighting    never    does
j make for the good of the game, no
j matter what provokes it.
Nunnimo Was Lucky
'lhe Lower-Island team went home
I victors   as   far   as   the  goal   scoring
i went, but they took along with them
a  badly  damaged  reputation, for on
ihe day's play, they were pretty nearly
outclassed  by  their youthful opponents who literally ran them off their
j feet.     Promptly ut the set lime Na-
; naimo kicked off, Rangers 1' iving won
; the   toss,   and   in   tbe  s;    e   minute
! Walker was tested with a    lot which
j he handled with the great-   : of ease.
\ Stobbart  and  his  forward-     worked
i right  back  again   and  for  the   next
three  minutes,   the  Ranger    defense
was kept too busy for theii supporters' comfort     When it seemed that a
goal  was going to be the inevitable
result  the  tide  of    battle    suddenly
i changed and for tbe next twenty min-
I utes   Routledge   handled   more  shots
| than Walker did throughout the entire game, hut few of them were what
could he called very dangerous.     Ex-
' actly   twenty-five   minutes   from   tho
start of the game Clarke scored Na-
naimo's only tally, the only one of the
: game, wilh a low shot which passed
under the goalie's outstretched arms.
The kick was a good one but the general impression is that Clarke was In
an off-side position when he received
the ball, hut Referee Jones could not
see it that   way.      The next twenty
minutes  were  fairly even  with both
goals  being in  turn  bombarded, the
excellent playing by the defense on
, both teams being the only thing that
kept the score down.
Second Half
;, After the breather many fans
[ thought that the experience of the
older Nanaimo team would assert it-
: self, and It was expected by nearly
j everyone that they would certainly
i add two or three more goals to the
1 one that they had secured in the first
I half. But such was not to be. Not
■ only did the Rangers prevent any further scoring on the part of their op-
! ponents but they kept the latter
j hemmed up in their own half for
' fully three-quarters of the period. In
1 spite of this they could do no Bcor-
; ing themselves for the forward line,
[ with the exception of Jock Campbell,
is undoubtedly tbe weak spot of the
'■ Ranger'team. If it could compare
\ with the defense Nanaimo would have
1 bad quite a large score piled up
-against them.
It was early In this period that Na-
t naimo secured their first corner, the
| Rangers had forced oue in the first

The big Moose Hallowe'en Carnival
Dance held in the llo-Ilo Ball Room
on Friday evening last was a greater
success than the most ardent supporters of tbe Moose Lodge anticipated. One of tiie largest crowd.i
ever attending a dance in this famous
ball room was in attendance and the
proceeds will, we understand be devoted to a member of the Moose Lodge
who has been sick and off work for
a considerable time.
Tiie spacious ball room had been
tastefully decorated for the occasion,
with Hallowe'en colors and novelties
in prolusion. The dance commenced
shortly after 0:30 p.m. and continued
until 2: SO a.m. A large number of
balloons and other novelties were distributed among the dancers who entered into the spirit of Hallowe'en
with a vim, the result being a riotous
time for all,
During the course of the evening
a twenty-one piece China Tea Set was
drawn for, number 477 being the lucky
winning ticket. Plump's five-piece
Orchestra supplied ull the latest
dance hits and gave general satisfaction, encores being numerous. At
2:30 a.m. the dance terminated, the
annual Moose Carnival dance of last
Friday going down on the records as
the best .vet.

November 11th, 1918. Peace at
last.
In the tew days preceeding that
eventful day, those of us who had
been spared to "Carry on," the question was on everyon's lips—"Have
you heard anything yet?" At last
the day dawned .November 11th, the
word travelled far and wide, the
length and breadth ot the firing line,
with the speed of shell fire, clear
down to the French coast to the hospitals where hundreds of brave men
lay battling for life. At first It was
laughed at. We had heard it so
often. But as the day wore on, officers almost hysterical with joy, confirmed the news, that Germany, defeated, was humbly suing tor peace.
Some of the boys shouted and sang
short snatches of popular songs,
happily, but had little to say, others
again were grave and silent, overwhelmed by a tremendous sense of
relief.
In the hearts of all there began to
rise a passionate longing for home.
Just a few hours ago it had appeared
so horrible—the frightful noises, the
shocks and horrors ot the battlefield.
To many the thought of home brought
with It the thoughts of the comrades
who would not make the return journey.
Peace at last. In the great hour
of peace the memories of the fallen
comrades came to those of us who remained, like sweet and tender echoes
of sacred and unspoken thoughts.
The new era that the end of the war
was to usher In, would be-all the
brighter because of the flower of manhood that had been garnered to make
It so. The gallant hearts of whom
it could be said: "In the glory of their
manhood they fared forth In a great
adventure, their hearts aflame with
the desire to keep Freedom inviolate
and unsullied. They feared not
death, and meeting It they won the
victor's crown."
THANKSGIVING
The toll of summer is over, the
crops have been garnered, and It Is
right and proper now that we should
stop for a few moments and turn our
thoughts and render our thanks to the
Great Giver of every good and perfect
gift, for bounties we enjoy and the
general prosperity of    the    Country.
We would be very indignant should
anyone accuse us of being ungrateful
for the favors accorded us; but there
is a law of nature that decrees, that if
man will not use a faculty or power,
be shall not retain it, and the spirit
of thankfulness is not exercised as
much as H should be. In this excited
and feverish race of life, we simply
snatch its many blessings without
stopping to think of the source from
whence they come, and we are slowly, hut surely, losing this principle of
gratitude, and as the general prosperity increases, we are withdrawing
more and more into the little circle of
self. As we become more and more
independent of each other, we become
more and more selllsh, exacting ami
ungrateful not only to the Lord but
toward each other.
Thanksgiving  Day!
It comes also to mark a day, a day
that stands out above every other, in
the history of our Empire, when the
whole world uwakened to the realization that the years of warfare had
ended in the vindication of the right
of mankind to live in freedom. Io
many it will bring with increased
poignancy thc thought of the loved
ones who died that Thanksgiving Day
might hold all of its true meaning for
those they left behind. They, fought
and died for the Canada of tomorrow
as much as that of today. It is ours
to prove that their sacrifice was not
in vain.

Women of today who compluin ot
the high prices of the cloth and trimming needed in the making of their
own clothes should be thankful they
did not live in the days of Louis XV,
of Franco, Whore the modern girl
uses about live yards of cloth and
two or three yards of trimming to
make a dress, the lady of fashions of
Louis' time had to purchase no less
than fifteen yards of cloth and twelve
yards of trimming. The average working girl of today could scarcely afford
very many changes If the old-time
styles still prevailed.
These and other interesting comparative figures came to light, when
the Costume Department at Para-
mount's Long Island studio was given the order to have 300 costumes
made for the members of the cast of
the Sidney Olcott production for Paramount starring Rudolph Valentino
"MonBieur Beaucaire."
When the designers sat down to
estimate the amount of cloth and
trimming needed to make the costumes they were shocked to learn
that approximately 7000 yards were
necessary. These figures were reached by averaging 9 yards of cloth and
10 yards of trimming to each of the
100 costumes for the men, and almost 15 yards of cloth and 10 yards
of trimming for the women's dresses.
And, as the dopesters have it all figured out, if all the cloth and trimming used in making the costumes
for "Monsieur Beaucaire" were made
in one long piece it would stretch
over o distance of four miles.
"Monsieur Beaucaire," which will
be the feature next Monday, Tuesday
and Wednesday at the llo-Ilo Theatre, features Bebe Daniels, Lois Wilson, Doris Kenyon and Lowell Sherman in support of the star.
Forrest Halsey adapted the stoiy
to the screen from Booth Tarklng-
ton's novel of the same name.
IN  MEMOKIAM
In loving memory of Louis Francescini, who died November 6, 1921.
With a cheery smile and a wave of
the hand.
He has wandered Into the unknown
land,
And left us thinking how very fair,
It  really must  be,  since  he   lingers
there.
And us, just us, that really yearn
For the old-time  step  and  the glad
return
Will think of him just the same and
say
He is not dead, he is just away.
Time may pass and bring Its changes
Fresh with every coming year,
But hiB memory will be cherished
In the hearts that hold him dear.
Ever remembered by his loving wife
and son. 45.

The financial condition of the association, an improvement in which
has been steadily realized came ln for
special consideration. This subject
has been before the directors at pre
vious meetings and nothing new was
brought out at Friday's session. The
president told the meeting that he
was of the opinion that the association could use two thousand dollars
to clear off all the indebtedness and
repair the buldlugs of the association.
Mr. Edwards stressed the necessity of
repairs being made immediately to
the roof and the foundation of the
large hall. The consolidation of the
association debts seemed to meet
with general approval. Mr. Crockett
thought that a loan of two thousand
dollars could be floated provided thu

PARTING MEMBER
COURTENAY—Last Friday night
at the Courtenay Hotel, about thlry
members of the Courtenay Golf Club
gathered around the festive board to
do honor to Mr. William Shilcock on
t le eve of his departure for the Old
I and where he will make a protracted visit. Mr. Shilcock was one of the

associated for the past three years.
The dining table was appropriately
decorated with golf sticks and balls
and vases of roses. Mr. George Pidcock, president, occupied a seat at
the head of the table and almost all
corners of the Valley were represented.
After supper the main event waB
the presentation of a pair of gold cuff
links, the address being made by Mr.
A. B. Dundas, past president of the
club who told of the great work Mr.
Shilcock had done for golf in Comox
District. Mr. Shilcock was taken
completely by surprise but managed
to make a feeling reply. Others who
spoke were Mr. Thomas Graham, of
Cumberland, Mr. J. N. McLeod, of
Courtenay and Mr. George Pldcock.
Music was provided by Mr. Bert Good-

CUMBERLAND, B. C.
The "annual" worst storm in
twenty years visited Comox District
last Thursday and Friday. She certainly was a beauty and did a whole
lot of damage. All day Friday the
town was full of rumors to the effect
that the Gas Tug "Trucllla" with two
scows all belonging to the Vancouver-
Courtenay Transportation Company,
had been lost In the gulf. On Saturday authentic reports were received
telling of the stranding on Hornby Island of one of the freight scows, after
the Trucllla and her tows had received a severe buffeting by the wind
and high seas, near Yellow Rock, the
scene of the wreck of the steamer
Alpha twenty-five years ago.
The boats had made Deep Bay cannery without mishap and had taken
on a cargo of thirty-live hundred
cases of salmon. On leaving the cannery the tug and scows ran Into the
full fury of the raging southeaster,
breaking the tow line and setting one
of the scows free. After a hard battle to regain her tow the Trucllla
gave up the scrap and a short tlmu
a terwards the scow was driven on to
the rocky coast of Hornby Island.
The trucllla then proceeded on her
way to Vancouver.
Another marine disaster was enacted nt Comox when the gasoline
launch "Navan" about thirty-five feet
long, belonging to Mr. and Mrs. Earl
McLennan, of Vancouver came to
grief. On Friday an attempt was
made to cross the gulf to Powell
River. After covering a short distance the boat begaln to leak. A return waB made to Comox wharf where
the boat was moored to the float. Later she was towed to the beach. In
the evening an Inspection was about
to be made of the damage done ln the
storm when she burst into flames and
was quickly consumed. The cause
of the fire Is unknown. Mr. McLennan has spent several weeks in the
district on a business trip.
It Is also reported that the good
ship Charmer was aground for a short

Gordon reporting that though there
were many trees blown across the
road they were removed before he

down, and In many other parts of the
district, It Is reported that fences,
sheds and silos have been wrecked.
Some of the logging concerns suffered some loss also. Mr. J. K. Urquhart had several booms at the
mouth of the Courtenay River. One
of these broke loose and four sections

GORDON IS
STILL AT LARGE
COURTENAY,—William "Red" Gordon who stole a motor car a couple
of weeks ago and then beat it for the
woods in the Dove Creek section is
still at liberty, although It is not
thought that he can be ejoying himself very much. It Is certain that
the residents of that quarter are not
getting any amusement out of his
presence in the neighborhood, for he
has broken into several houses and
has the people badly frightened. It
is thought that someone is providing
him with the means of sustenance for
lie could hardly be oxpected to live
under the recent weather conditions
in thc open without some means of
protctlon, He has slept in the barns
of the neighborhood on several occasions, at one place stealing cream that
had-been put into dairy cans preparatory to taking It to the creamery. A
strong effort is being made to capture
him and it is likely that success will
crown the efforts of the olice this
week.

The
Star Car
"THE ARISTOCRAT OF LOW-
PRICED CARS"
Excerpt of "A Critical Analysis of a Star Car," by A. Ludlow Clayden, engineering expert from the "Motor" June 1924
The motor is in every way a
thoroughly up-to-date modern
design Incorporating features
usually considered to be the
best engineering practice. Obviously tbe first considerations
in laying out the design were
smoothness, durability and
quietness. Accessibility Is remarkably good. It would, for
instance, be hard to find a motor
In which the removal of tbe
head for carbon scraping was
so easy as there are not very
many studs and sucb as there
are simply hold the head. They
do not also act as supports for
accessories and bo involve tho
disturbance of anything else.
The things that make for
smoothness are mainly a short
and sturdy crankshaft, light
pistons ond connecting rods,
and three good-sized main bearings. Quietness Is obtained hy
the L head form with tappets
that can be set to a close clearance by the use of a chain
drive for camshaft and generator, and by the rigid mounting
of the engine In a rigid frame.
The system of lubrication also
has some influence on the sound
of operation. Durability is indicated by the ample size of all
wearing parts, the pressure oiling system and the provision for
ready adjustment where wear
will ultimately have to be taken
up.
The lubrication system is of
a high order of merit. It supplies oil under the pump pressure to the main bearings, the
erankplns and to the camshaft
bearings, leaving only the pistons and the chain to be lubricated by splash. Creat ingenuity is shown In the details,
there being only one pipe. The
gear pump ls located at the rear
end of the camshaft, housed ln
the crankcase casting. It draws
oil from the crankcase through
the pipe mentioned, the lower
end of the pipe dipping down inside a large strainer of fine
mesh. It ls to be noted that
the pipe leads into the pump
body in such a way that the
pump will not drain dry when
the engine stops; in other words
it is necessary to prime tbe
pump only when It has been
taken off and opened up.
On the delivery side the oil
enters thc center of the camshaft which ls hollow throughout its length and the presure
release valve Is located in the
housing of the front end camshaft bearing. OH escaping
from this outlet falls on the
front end chain and so keeps It
continually bathed with lubricant.
At each of its three hearings
the camshaft is drilled and from
the camshaft bushings passages
In tho crankcase lead direct tn
thc crankshaft hearings. Thence
drilled holes In Ihe crank
checks carry the oil to the connecting rod lower ends. It is
obvious that a system involving
a hollow cninshaft and a drilled
crank, plus nil passages In the
crankcase, was not chosen for
Its cheapness. The wisdom of
the choice, however, lies In tho
fnct that a small engine Is usually worked harder, proportionally, than a big ono whicli
means that the bearing loads
average more nearly their possible maximum in the small
job. As to the pros and cons
of different oiling systems there
is constant discussion, but that
the pressure system will give
the longest life when the loading Is heavy Is admitted by all
engineers. With properly frequent changes of oil and an occasional cleaning out of the oil-
pan the Star bearings ought to
give a service as long as is to
he expected of any car Irrespective of Its cost.

SOCCER GAME MARRED
BY DISPLAY OF NOBLE
AND MANLY ART
(Continued From Page One)
half, but nothing came of either of
them, ln fact, only six corners iu
all were obtained throughout the entire game and these were divided
evenly between the two teams. With
about ten minutes to go Nanaimo
scored again but this point was disallowed for the play was decidedly
off-side, Referee Jones' decision being protested by no one. Then came
the really exciting part of the game,
when only five minutes were left for
play. The Rangers made a valiant
effort to score and were concentrating all their energy on the left wing
which had the better chance of
breaking through. Weir, the left-
winger, was tearing up the line with
Stobbart being  the    only    opposing
player between him and the goal but
that coveted destination was never
reached. Stobbart charged him from
the side when Weir was in the air,
and although it did not look intentional, nevertheless it waa pretty
rough play and when Weir went down
he went out also. A second later
Stobbart also went down, being pushed there in no uncertain way by Kee-
nan who was rushing to the left-
winger's assistance, and as he got up
again it was only to meet the blows
of another Ranger player who had
also become incensed at what looked
to him like intentional dirty play. By
this time several of the spectators
had encroached upon the playing
pitch and succeeded in separating the
would-be gladiators who were dually
persuaded to return to their respective positions. One minute after
play was resumed the whistle was
blown for full time, Nanaimo winning
by the odd goal.
Farmer Again Stars
Farmer, center-half for the Rangers, was the hero of the game, his
playing being far superior to that of
any other man on the Held. Marshall, left-half, was also very good
and with the right-half, Devlin, there
is a trio which takes some beating. In
fact, the famous Dickinson found he
was unable to live up to his reputation due to the careful watching that
he received from the right-back.
Carney and Gough, at full-back, were
extremely good, the exhibition of
brain work that the former put up being unsurpassed at any time on the
Recreation Ground. For Nanaimo,
Edmunds and his partner Hindmarsb,
at full-back, were the mainstays of
the team, it being due mainly to their
work that, the Rangers were unable
to score. Stobbart was good and ex-
j cept for the unfortunate incident in
the closing minutes of the game,
! which we honestly believe he didn't
! try, played a very heady game. Harris and MaeDougall were alBO good.
Referee Jones was as fair to one
team as to the other and is not, as
the Vancouver Province says, being
blamed for the fighting attitude of tlio
players.
