Britisli Columbia is the first province in the Dominion of Canada to
bring about an Old Age Pension
Agreement , and we should he proud
of the racl. The first payments under tlie new federal law are expected
to he issued sometime during the latter part ol this month.
The necessary Information gathered
by tlie Workman's Compensation
Board in this connection has revealed
some surprising ami interesting statistics. For instance, it has been discovered tliat there are more than
thirteen thousand people in the province of rtritisli Columbia loday who
are more than seventy years of age
Comparing this figure with the total
population ol* our province, this is an
astonishing proportion, li speaks
favorably for British Columbia's mild
climate as the Ideal one for the aged
to spend their remaining years. Of
the applicants two exceed the hundred mark, one mini being one hundred and two years of age. the other
one hundred and seven. Thirty per
cent of Ihe number of male applicants
arc bachelors, and .-in almost equal
percentage of the female ap-plicants
are  spinsters.
One ot the greatest problems the
Pensions Department must face is the
fact tliat scarcely any of the applicants have their birth eertilieate in
their possession. These certificates
as the law stands now, arc absolutely essenlial in making application,
but the mailer must doubtless be ad-
Britisli Columbia ranks first in the
Dominion of Canada in bringing about
this desirable slate of affairs resulting from the Old Age Pension Agreement.

The Cumberland Islander
IT is a great relief to go into the woods and
relax far from the blatant noises of the
town. After months spent trodding the
paved streets, shrinking from the blare of traffic,
it is wonderful to quit the dust and din and to go
and rest in some far-off nook ot the woods. Here
you will be surprised to find that the brook is so
limpid, the forest so still, the solitude so enchanting. Thank God there are yet these uninvaded
corners, However formidable the uproar, however deafening the babel of mills, factories, railroads and city streets, it cannot carry beyond a
certain limit; it grows faint and dies away. The
realm of silence is vaster than the realm of noise.
Herein is our consolation.
A few weeks ago the writer with a boon companion spent a day on a small lake close to Cumberland. Seated in our boat we left the comfortable camp and paddled off into a little bay. As
the clear, blue waters narrowed into a little
stream bordered with pine and alder trees, we
came to a beaver clam, across which we portaged
our boat. The beaver dam was worth the trip
from home. It was a masterpiece of construction,
sixteen feet long, eight feet high and as watertight as a drum. A few feet beyond the dam we
came to the bea*» er house on a very small island.
Did you ever see a beaver dam and a beaver
house? Well, you should. The sight of these
wonderful structures built by.animals who must
work with their teeth would give you some respect for an accomplishment under difficulties.
In a few minutes we glided out into a small lake—
a jewel in a natural setting. In the centre of the
lake was a bed of lily pads. Beautiful ducks were
swimming on the bosom of the lake. Across the
water in a reedy marsh we sighted a deer. The
wind was offshore and with baited breath and
no sound to frighten the animal we paddled up
to within thirty feet before she saw us. She
raised her head and looked solemnly at us for a
moment, then with a clumsy lunge climbed out
01 the water and trotted away into the forest.
We went to fishing and caught six trout. But
we carried away with us a glorious memory of a
day that will never be forgotten.
Talking about our annual trips to the woods,
a gentleman who has never been away from the
paved streets of the city, said: "You fellows go
to all that trouble because you think it's fashionable."
Poor simp! He is the kind that gets lonesome
when the street cars stop running and it is time
to go to bed. He couldn't appreciate the charms
of a place like the lakes on Vancouver Island.
FREEMAN HOPGOOD, general secretary of
the American Association for the Advancement of Atheism, challenged Irving T. Bush,
president of the Bush Terminal Company, to a
written debate on "the existence of God" last
week. Mr. Bush's reply is worthy of a national
broadcast because he said all there is to be said
on the subject in a few words.   Read it.
"Should I accept your challenge," wrote Mr.
Bush, "I begin a controversy. For ages men have
argued about things beyond this world, and today they are just where they began. I accept
all that science has proved, lor it is all within
human knowledge of our world. Evolution accepted does not prove there is no power behind
"Neither you nor I, with finite minds, can prove
or disprove the infinite. If you are content to believe that all the wonders of nature are chance
and that the inner conciousness which tells you
right from wrong, is accident, it is your privilege.
"For myself, 1 believe there is a power beyond
our knowledge, and I am content to call it God.
If there can be no proof, why argue upon whom
the burden of proof rests? I might answer that
belief has existed during written history, and it
is you who assert that there is no basis for it—
therefore, the burden is upon you.
"I read the other day in an article about atheism a statement holding the believers in God up
to ridicule, because in thousands of years they
had not proved His existence. Have the atheists
proved His non-existence?"
And so the matter stands, for after all, it is
only a question of faith. You believe or you do
not believe and you will have to admit the happi-.
est people in the world are those who believe and
live simple lives according to the teaching of the
couver on Sunday.
We are glad to hear that Aliss Greta
Kay lias secured a position in the
ofiice of Mr. J. M. Mitchell at Courtenay.
Jlrs. J. Wilkinson is now in the
Comox Hospital. Her friends are
glad to hear that she is improving.
The Misses Winnie and Louise Bowden held a very enjoyable "Court

At the Board of Trade meeting on
Tuesday night, Air.   Wm. Douglas reported   that   he  had   discovered   what
might   prove  to   be  a   profitable  Industry in this district.    While out iu
the  hush   back  of  Bevan   some  time
ago   he   found    some     cones   which
aroused his curiosity and brought several samples of them home.     Showing   them   to   different   persons   who
are   familiar   with   local   woods,   he
received    different    opinions   as    to
what they were, so he sent a sample
llo Professor Davidson, of the University of B.C., an authority on coniferous trees and  he  classified  them as
being a  species    of    fir cone, Abies
Amahilis.  the  seed   from   which  was
in   much  demand    for    reforestation
purposes  in  European  countries.    Oil
the basis of this information he wrote
to dealers in  the  East and  received
quotations  which  would  enable  him
pay $6.00 per sack for such cones.
Mr. Douglas said that as the season
late he did nol anticipate obtaining many of the cones this year, but
next year would go fully into tha
biisfness  of securing  Ihese cones.
