Misunderstanding About Collections by Fire Department—
City Dump to be Closed.
The fortnightly meeting of the
City Council was held on .Monday
night in the Council Chambers, His
Worship .Mayor MacDonald in the
chair.   All the aldermen were present.
Among the communications was
one irom the Fire Department invit
lug tlie Mayor and Aldermen to the
amoke concert on Thursday evening
This wan accepted.
The Fire Department returned the
Council's cheque for the purchase of
tires, etc., for tiie fire truck, saying
the Fire Department would pay for
the goods themselves. This action
was caused through some misunderstanding on account of the Council
Insisting at a previous meeting that
requisitions for items of large sums
should go through the Council.
Aid. Parnham explained the situation and thought there would be no
such misunderstanding in the future.
He moved that the cheque be returned
lo the Fire Department, which course
was unanimously agreed to.
School and General Rale Bylaws.
The bylaws fixing tbe general and
school rates were put through the
three readings and will come up for
adoption at next meeting.
Hoard of Works.
Alderman Bannerman reported the
toilet had been fixed at the city buildings, at a cost of about $25.
Aid. Pickard voiced bis objection
to the excessive cost of the septic
tank, etc., which had cost about $300.
The Council decided to close the
pipes in to protect from freezing, and
that if anything happens in future the
police be held responsible.
In connection with the joining up of
the Fraternity Hall with the sewer, It
was shown that owing to the sewer
in the lane at rear being so high, connection had to he made through other
property to the sewer on Dunsmuir
Avenue, necessitating nearly 200 feet
of pipe. In consequence of the heavy
expense incurred by the Fraternity
Hall Co. the Council voted $25 towards
the cost.
Some discussion took place regarding the cost of pipes, and tbe City
Clerk was instructed to write for
prices on different sizes.
Board at* Health.
Aid. Francescini urged the Council
to take some action regarding tbe city
dump, claiming it was a disgrace and
should bo closed down at once. On
motion of Aid, Thomson, seconded by
Aid. Brown, it was decided to close
the old dump and open up another.
Aid. Francescini raised the question
of the tnttl condition of Windemere,
caused by the tlow of water from the
hydrant damaged by the auto of the
provincial police last year. City Clerk
Mordy reported that no reply had
been received to his letter to the
chief engineer at Victoria for this
road to be repaired by the provincial
department.
•tflgumlerstjifdiiiff ns to Collections
By Fire Department.
Aid. Brown related the Incident of
his stopping tbe collection of monies
by the secretary of the Japanese Association somo time ago. when the latter
had informed him that the money was
for the purchase of lire hose, which
the Council had not authorized.
It transpired that there had been a
misunderstanding in the matter. The
committee collecting funds for the
Firemen's Masquerade Ball had met|
the secretary of the Japanese Assoc,a-1
tion and told him they were going to
Special Train For
Football Game
Champions to  Meet   Nanaimo
City in Serai-Final Event
For McBride Shield.
Cumberland United were unlucky
in the draw Ior choice of ground in
the seml-llnal tie to be played between N'anaimo City and the local
team. The game will be played on
the Cricket Grounds, Nanaimo, Saturday afternoon.
The management of the local team
have made arrangements for a special
train to leave here Saturday morning
at 9 a.m., returning, leave N'anaimo at
8.30 p.m. As the return fare from
Cumberland for this special train bas
been reduced to J3.50 It Is confidently
expected that, given line weather, a
large crowd will accompany the team.
The latest reports from Nanaimo
are to the effect that they fully intend
to win, and all their players are in Al
condition. The local boys are also
out to win, and with everyone down
to strict training the team should be
in first-class condition .
Tbe management of the Cumberland
United Club have, to our mind, picked
a very strong team to do duty on Saturday, and we can see no reason why
they should not take tbe measure ot
the Nanaimo boys.
The following Is tbe team chosen to
do duty: Goal, Walker; backs, Strang,
and Campbell; half-backs, Irvine,
Roberts and Conti; forwards, Banner-
man, Milligan, Pilling, Hitchens and
Home. All other players will act as
reserves. D. Wilson, manager, and A.
Rowan trainer. The kick-off is
scheduled for 6 p.m.

Case Dismissed
Prosecution  Failed  to Connect
Proprietress With the Case
Before Magistrate.
take up collections among the Japanese. The secretary offered to do so
for them, the committe leaving the
matter in his hand*. On the secretary's talk with the Fire Chief he had
got the Impression that the money
was for Are hose, and so told the
Japanese, hence the misunderstanding.
However, the Fire Wardens had
taken the matter up with the Fire Department at*the meeting of the latter
and it was now all cleared up.
Aid. Brown also reported that there
was a good water pressure at No. 1
Japanese Town, and the hose would
reach all parts. In No. 5 Japanese
Town, however, there was not sufficient force in the water pipes for Are
protection. A larger pipe evidently
was needed there. As the revenue received by the Water Works Co. was
small from that locality, they did not
feel disposed to putting in a larger
pipe. Aid.'Brown said the Japanese
appreciated the interest the Council
were taking in their behalf.
Tender for Sidewalks.
Only one tender was received for
the work of raising the sidewalks on
Dunsmuir Avenue, but this was considered too high and was not accepted.
Memorial Arch.
The sum of $850 was reported by
Aid. Brown as the amount of money
ln the Memorial Arch Fund, with the
Union Bay list still to come in. Work
was now proceeding and they expected to have everything ready for May
24. Part of the money would be used
to put the grounds ln good condition.
Raising Sidewalk.
The Council decided to ask Mr. W.
A. Owen to supervise the work of
raising the cement sidewalks on
Dunsmuir Avenue.
House Numbers.
The City Clerk was empowered to
purchase the necessary figures with
which to number the houses of the
city.   The cost wlll be about $30.
Are You On The Voters' List?
If You Did Not Vote at the Last Provincial Election
Your Name Will Be Struck Off the Roll Unless
Another Application is Made.
In view of the possibility of a plebiscite vote being
taken on the beer question, and the probability of a
Dominion Election before long, it behoves all who did
not vote at the last Provincial Election to fill in a new
application form, otherwise their names will be struck
off the list and they will be without votes.
The Act in force last year called for the names of all
who did not vote to be removed from the voters' list,
but amendments passed during the session just closed
made provision for names to be retained on the list
provided new application forms were filled in. This
will have to be done before the Court on Revision sits,
in June.
Do it now, and make sure of your vote. Mr. John
Baird, Government Agent, is Registrar of voters for
the Comox Electoral District.
The case adjourned from last week
against the Wilson Hotel of Union
Bay, came up before Magistrate Baird
Monday morning, when the charge
was amended to read thut drunkenness was unlawfully permitted on the
premises. The previous charge was
of "permitting disorderly conduot,"
and not of running a disorderly house
as previously announced.
The charge was laid by Provincial
Constable Agassi**,, who testified that
on the night of Monday, April 4, In
company with Special Constable Bunbury, when in tlie vicinity of Ihe Wilson Hotel he heard considerable
noise proceeding from the hotel bar,
and upon entering found several men
apparently drunk who were creating
a disturbance,
The evidence of Polico Officer Bunbury was to the same effect.
Mr. P. P. Harrison, who appeared
for the defence, applied for a dismissal of the case on the grounds
that the prosecution had failed to
connect the occupier of the holel in
any way with the case. He said the
prosecution would have to show that
she was the owner, occupier or tenant
of the hotel, aud not only must they
connect her with the hotel but must
also show that she permitted the conduct complained of. Mr. Harrison
said he would not call witnesses for
the defence, as the case would have to
be dismissed ou these grounds.
Constable Agassiz said the accused
was named In the complaint and his
worship had sufficient knowledge to
Infer she was connected.
Magistrate Baird said there was
nothing before the court to show the
occupier was tlie party charged, and
he would have to dismiss the case on
that ground,

made by the Naval Department that
the projected departure of the Canadian squadron April 15 from the
coast of British Columbia for Halifax
has been postponed. The squadron
will remain In the Pacific for the

John Nord. of Cumberland, wishes

was found there.

Tlit> Salvation Army makes an
earnest appeal lo all to as-atst them
llnancial ly in maintaining and'developing the practical social service
activities to wliieh it is so closely
allied. The work of the institution,
as almost everyone knows, includes
rescue homes, children's homes, maternity homes, prison work, police
court work, working men's hostels,
and Institutions of like character.
Commissioner Wm, Eadie, in an appeal issued recently, said:
"On the reverse side of this leaflet
you will see briefly mentioned some
departments of tbe uplifting work
carried on by the Salvation Army in
Canada West, including the directly
spiritual or evangelistic, which, as a
matter of fact, makes all the rest
possible.
"Even a hurried glance at these varied forms of religious aud charitable
worlt must impress the reader with
the fact that such operations cannot
be maintained and extended without
heavy expenditures in cash and consecrated service.
"Fortunately, within our ranks are
to be found in ever-increasing numbers men and women imbued with the
spirit of self-sacrifice and devotion,
fired with a passion to serve—but we
must turn to the public for support—
for cash to carry on. Hence our annual service appeal.
"And Is not such an appeal justified? We think so, and we believe
you do also. Our work is progressing,
new doors of opportunity for helpful
service are ever opening. Fifty young
men and women who have consecrated their lives to this work are now
being trained in Winnipeg for usefulness iu Western Canada.
"We need your help, and in the
Master's name thank you in anticipation for a generous response."

police court a man named D. Obtover,
who lives in the Savoy Hotel, was
fined $10 and costs under the Fire
Prevention Bylaw for having cigarette
butts in the waste paper basket in his

VANCOUVER.—The edict has gone
forth from the city fire wardens' department that there must be a general
cleaning up of ail dirty and moss-
grown roofs in the city. This must
lie done prior to the advent of the
coming dry spell or wholesale prosecutions will follow.
A tabulation of the (ires which oc
curred in Vancouver last year revealed the fact that damage aggregating $18,000 was directly traceable to
the accumulation of rubbish—mostly
moss—on roofs, especially dwelling
bouses where the roofs had not been
tarred for years. This moss, when it
dries up in summer, acts as tinder
when a spark falls on It and has been
the cause of a large proportion of the

THE MOST IMPORTANT
THING IN THE WORLD
Q.—What is the most Important
thing in the world?
A.—A fish.
Q— What kind of a lish?
A.—Three kinds ot* a fish: trout,
salmon and the poor fish that lishes
for the first two. '
Q.—Wily do men go fishing?
A.—To get away from their income
taxes, Insurance agents, mother-in-
law, and invent some new stories.
Q.—Is it true tliat fishing reduces
the high cost of living?
A.—Yes. for Uie lish.
Q.— What is ihe best kind of bait?
A.—That kind that is now obsolete?
Q—What made It obsolete?
A.—A lotta poor lish who thought
water was**good to drink.
Q.What makes a lish bite?
A.—Because he gets mad to lliink
that people are going lo drink all tbe
water so tliat the fish won't have anything to swim around in, aud when
they get good and mnd they will bite
almost anything, and that is why the
state has to pass fish laws. For if il
didn't tho fish would soon bite their
way out of tlie waters ami into tbe
frying-pan.
Q.—Why is it necessary to have a
fishing licence?
A.—Some trout are so particular
they won't bite unless you have a
licence; the licence should always be
carried so the fish can see it. but
they should not be allowed to bite it
One of the first things a. fisherman
has to learn Is tliat the trout should
be coaxed to bite the bait.

PLEBISCITE ON  BEEU
When the people of tliis Province went to the polls last
October the majority of them voted in favor of a system of
Government control and sale of spirituous and malt liquor
iu sealed packages. Tlie two questions submitted were
perfectly clear to everybody and the verdict was equally
emphatic. If the Legislature had chosen to interpret it:
instruction from tlie people iu a manner different from
that which marked the construction of the measure which
is now tho law of the land it would have exposed itself to
aitaek. To have included what is now known as a beer
clause to provide for the public drinking of tlie mult
product by the glass a wrung interpretation ot tlie plebis
cite vote would have been made. Whether such a course
would have found favor Willi public opinion is another
matter entirely. And it Is because of a general belief that
the Act as It stands will encourage the consumption of
hard liquor that there is something to be said in favor of
a plebiscite to settle what may develop into a troublesome
point. Unfortunately this phase of the controversy was
not enlarged upon, if it were mentioned in public at all
before the plebiscite was taken. Otherwise the whole
tiling could have been settled. Hut the electorate must
remain the linal arbiter in a matter of this sort.—Times.
BIRDS OF A FEATHER
Indignation at tlie action of the legislature in raising
the salaries and indemnities of ministers and members is
not confined to municipal councils. It is widespread. We
know of no political action which has aroused so much
adverse comment, says the Cowichan Leader.
In the closing hours of the session the expense of government—such as it is—is increasel by $31,300 annually.
Another session is to be held in the fall. Presumably each
member will draw a further $2000 for this service.
One argument iu favor of Home Rule for Vancouver
Island is that, as a separate province, we might get a
little more honest government.
The present House should go down in our annals as the
most vulgar, spineless ami shameless collection of representatives which even llritish Columbia has ever experienced.   The unmannerly,*exhibition which marked its close
is fitting companion for the disgraceful scene which was
allowed to pass unchecked at its opening.
.    ' salary   grab"   demonstrates   that   Conservatives,
...... and Independents are birds of a feather and that
ii i> high time the people of this province   raised   the
standard of their law-makers.
COAL PRODUCTION AND EXPORTS
Throughout Canada the coal-mining industry is at
present quiet, owing to abnormally mild weather and a
ailing ill exports.   On Vancouver Island the bunkers are
led, but few steamers are calling for suppies, and a
similar condition exists on the Atlantic Coast. The demand for Alberta coal fell off materially ln January and
has remained slack ever since. The Maritime miners
report that they are unable to compete in the export
markets because of tbe high cost of production. Nova
.-■coda in 1920 exported 1,270,000 tons as compared with
9!)5,oo0 in 1U19; Britisli Columbia 1,190,000 tons in 1920,
as compared wilh 1.014,000 tons in 1919.   The imports of
bituminous coal into Canada amounted to 15.902,032 tons
in 1920, as compared with 12.010,490 In 1919. The Imports
of anthracite declined slightly, being 4,913,000 tons in 1920
and 4,972,000 tons in 1919. Except in Saskatchewan the
output from Canadian mines was ill excess of tliat of the
previous year. Alberta's product represented 41 per cent,
of the total of 10,968,000 tons. Last year's production was
the highest on record, but nevertheless 20,815,000 tons
were imported, and of this amount Central Ontario took
13,320,000 and Quebec 5,048,000 tons.
FINANCIAL CONDITION OF DOMINION
The financial situation shows little sign of improvement
Internaitonal trade is still dislocated, exports are still on
the decline, customs revenue is falling off, and exchange,
the most vital of all economic problems with wliieh the
country is faced, shows no tendency toward improvement.
Llnder the circumstances, Sir Henry Drayton's budget
speech Is being eagerly awaited. What new proposals it
may contain in the way of taxation, nobody but tlie
cabinet knows, but one thing at least is certain, tllat with
exchange at its present rate, with the Canadian dollar not
worth more than S5 cents in New York, tariff reductions,
which would almost certainly have the effect of further
decreasing its value, need not be expected.

On his return to England he told his audience: "Un-

the greatest manufacturing countries of the world. Niagara
alone will afford live million horsepower. Canada will
soon have tremendous and uninterrupted facility for working power turbines. We shall have to take the great

Cumberland United Enter Semi-Final
Defeat South Wellington Three-One
By  Defeating  Southern Team
Locals Qualify for Semi-Final
In McBride Shied Series
The Cumberland United entertained
the strong South Wellington team last
Saturday afternoon and ran out winners by a score of 3 goals to 1, thereby winning the right to meet Nanaimo
City in the semi-final tie, which will
be played this Saturday at Nanaimo.
Owing to a little delay in Pilling's
transfer coming through, lie was not
able to play, his place being filled by
Conti. As usual, tbe game was delayed by the referee not being on time,
it being nearly five o'clock before
Conti kicked off, South Wellington
winning the toss. Tlie Cumberland
forwards went down witli a rush iu
Ihe first minute of tbo game and almost scored, the visiting defence be
ini* absolutely beaten nnd all nt sea.

made tracks for Ihe home goal, but
was well looked after by llitehens and

Tidily Jackson nt outside left
kept busy for a few minutes, but
lacked tbe speed, several good chances
going by for a thrown in.
Cumliorluild (lets First Goal,
From a foul throw thc referee
awarded Cumberland a free kick, the
ball being nicely placed to Banner-
man, who crossed to Conti, tlie centre
forward having no difficulty in scoring Cumberland's lirst goal, after
12 minutes of play.
This reverse appeared to put some
pep into the South Wellington forwards, who made tracks for Walker's
goal, Russell sending in a dandy shot
which Walker put over the bar, conceding a corner, which came to nothing. Roberts put his forwards on the
move again, but they were as quickly
repulsed. Russell, the visiting centre
forward, who was playing a great
game, received and attempted a shot
which Hitchens cleared, the hall striking Russell, who followed up and had
no difficulty In beating Walker, making the score ono all.
Bull Skims Bur.
Midfleld play followed for some few
minutes, the game gradually being
forced to the visitors' goal, and on
one of the visiting backs handling the
ball in the dreaded area, a penalty was
awarded. Campbell came up to take
the kick, and putting all he knew behind it, skimmed the bar with a rising shot, thus missing n good chance
to give Cumberland the lead. Half-
time arrived immediately after, with
the score one goal each.
Line-Up Changed in Second Half.
On play being resumed it was
noticed tlie locals had changed their
line-up, Campbell going back into his
usual position, Hitchens going to the
inside left, wilh Home outside, and
Teddy Jackson going half-back. A
great improvement was immediately
noticed, the forwards moving much
better and looked like scoring right
from the start.
Ililclii'iis Scores,
Fourteen minutes had gone by In
tliis period when llitehens received u
perfect pass, and with a tremendous
drive bil Ihe upright. Il was extremely hard luck, as a few inches
would have done the trick. Another
determined effort on the part of tlie
local forwards snw Hitchens repeat
bis first aitempt, hitting the same upright, the ball this time, however, just
managed to get over the line, giving
Cumberland tho lead.
The visitors from this stage of the
game were a beaten team, the play in
consequence suffering. Twenty-five
minutes had gone by In this half when
Andy Home, securing from a good
cross by Bannerman, beat Cameron
with a lovely shot, making the score
3-1. No further scoring took place,
but a determined effort by the locals
saw the visiting goalie save a hot shot
from Bannerman, the crowd showing
their appreciation in no uncertain
manner. Time was called Bhortly
after.
For the visitors, the goalie, right-
back, centre-half and centre-forward
wero the pick of  the team.    In   the
locals, Bill Walker, what little he had
to do, was perfectly safe. Strang nt
back played one of the best games
since he has been with Cumberland.
Roberts at half-back was about the
pick of the three, although Jackson
played a good steady game. Among
the forwards, Andy Home and Ban-
nerrriaii, the two outside men, were
the pick.
Mr. Lock of Victoria  refereed and
gave great satisfaction.

Bevan Juniors Defeat Cumberland Boys on Sunday at
Bevan—Big Crowd.
The Cumberland Juniors engaged
Ihe Bevan boys in a league fixture on
Sunday at Bevan. Both teams were
at full strength and a large crowd
turned out to witness the game. A
special train ran from Cumberland in
the afternoon, taking a large number
of enthusiasts. *
In the first half there was not much
to choose between the teams. Bevan
were unlucky in not scoring during
Ibe early stages of the game, a shot
from Burns hitting the upright, and
ihe goalkeeper just reaching another.
It. Strachan scored for Cumberland,
ihe backs being at fault, Thompson
and Robertson being weak in their
clearing.
Bevan tried hard for the equalizer.
'Burns and Parks, in spite of their
lack of weight and size, made some
splendid runs and crosses, but
Strachan for Cumberland, at right
back, was in great form and punted
like a senior; his tackling was a little
too strenuous. Bevan continued to
press and had their efforts rewarded,
Marshall beating Boffy with a shot
that gave the goalkeeper no chance
whatever. Half-time was called without tbe score being added to.
Second Period.
On resuming. Bevan boys took the
game in hand, and for twenty minutes
Cumberland were seldom in the limelight. Bums, who was now playing
centre forward, put his team in the
lead, playing like a veteran; he trapped a high cross, beat three men on
,he run and scored a beauty. Not con-
;ent with their lead Bevan again
swarmed around Boffy, and only the
iplendid defence of Strachan, Stewart
tnd .Mitchell kept the score down.
Hums again found the net, giving his
'earn a two-goal lead.
Cumberland woke up towards the
inish and "Mitchell reduced the lee-
.vay, giving Walker no chance with a
ihot close in.
Bevan were worthy winners of one
nf the best Junior games that has
oeen witnessed in this district. The
toys have a splendid understanding
of the game anil try to play it. Weir,
ihe "Capt." of tlie team, is without
ioubt the best player in tlie league,
lie works like a trojan in defence or
attack; he can always be relied on.
Another season should see him in
senior ranks. Burns was probably the
most spectacular player on the field;
liis two goals were well taken, and
for his size it will be hard to find his
equal.    Parks, at outside   right,   al-
MEETING OF UPPER
IS. LEAGUE EXECUTIVE
Nanaimo Secures Home Game—
Two Clubs Claim T. James-
Pilling for Cumberland.
The executive committee of the
Upper Island Football League met at
Nanaimo on Monday last to deal with
the usual monthly business and also
to decide the venue and date of the
final of the Brackman-Ker cup, the
winner of which will compete in the
final for the McBride Shield, emblematical of the provincial championship.
Nnnalnio Gets Home Came.
The executive decided that the draw
for the venue of final take the same
course as the previous rounds in the
competition, namely that the names of
the clubs be placed in a hat and the
first drawn have the choice of home
ground. Nanaimo was the first drawn
so the game will be played at the bub
city. Tlie visiting club is to receive
$150 of the net receipts as travelling
expenses, the remainder, if any, to be
equally divided between the competing clubs.
Two Tennis Claim Tucker James.
Other business taken up was the
claim ot Nanaimo and Cumberland
Clubs for a player named Tucker
James, both clubs claiming htm as an
eligible player for their team, Mr,
James having signed a form for both
clubs lu this competition, although he
has not taken part in any game. The
executive decided to advise the niana-
though the smallest player on the
field, has a good understanding of the
game, his runs and crosses being a
feature. Keenan was off form and
seemed to be over-anxious. The wing
halfs, Williams and Fielding, were
steady and reliable. The backs
seemed to lack pep, and were to
blame for both goals.
For the losers, Boffy ill goal could
not be blamed for his team's defeat.
He gave a fine display and went a
long way in keeping the score so low.
The Brothers Strachan were the mainstay of the Cumberland team, and
witli Farmer, Mitchell and Brown,
thoy kept the game from being onesided. The Cumberland team were
inclined to give too much attention to
the man and not enough to tlie ball.
This is not football, and reflects on
the team's play.
General satisfaction was expressed
by all who witnessed the game on the
display put up by the Juniors, and a
collection of over $30 is proof that the
boys can depend on the public's support.

meeting on Saturday, April 16, at 2
p.m., to give the executive all the information possible, to enable them to

Pilling Eligible for Cumberland.
Mr. Alt. Pilling was considered an
eligible player for the Cumberland

NEW DE MILLE FILM
Expense Not Considered in the
Production of Something
to Think About"
Showing at Ilo-llo on Monday night, with Athon Co.
Julie Opp, wife of William Faver-
sham, and herself a well-known actress, died at the Post-Graduate Hospital in New York last week.
Thirty-six bills providing for censorship of motion-pictures are pending In various legislatures, and the
alarm among producers is not disguised by them. But there ls one
producer who, whatever ills views on
the abstract principle of censorship,
is not worrying. He ls also a star. It
Js claimed for Charles Ray that in all
his career he bas never enacted a
questionable scene, and his reward
has been double, in the consciousness
of his rectitude and tlie most consistent and devoted following of any
screen actor.
Claire Windsor, before she went
to the Lois Weber studios, worked for
a producing company which, although
one of the largest in tlle business, is
notorious for its parsimony. In a banquet scene the table was loaded with
cheap and badly cooked food which
the actors were forced to "enjoy."
During the filming of tlie scene Miss
Windsor's Belgian polico dog commenced to howl. "Stop your bowling, Bruno," said Miss Windsor, "you
don't have to eat."
So enthusiastic has been the reception of the Tom Santschi two-reel
"western" pictures that the Pathe
Company may present him in live and
six-reel plays of that kind. The retirement of the Bill Hart typical Wild
Westerner from the screen will leave
a gap which somebody will have to
fill, and Tom is counted the most
logical man to step into it.
"The Three Musketeers" ls to be
placed on the screen, and it is announced that one of the best known
dramatists is to be engaged to adapt
the tale to the requirements of the
camera. Several prominent contemporary writers and playwrights are
being considered for tbls task.
With gross profits of $2,476,0000 and
contracts which wlll bring the eventual profits up to $3,000,000, George
Loane Tucker'B photoplay, "The Miracle Man," has shattered all past records of the moving-picture world as
a money-maker. And the play has far
from finished Its career.
Mr. Come Back: "I'm looking for an
old friend of mine, Mr. Clarke. He
used to be cashier here. Has he left
the bank?"
Manager: "Yes, lie's left the bank.
That's about all he did leave."

Chartering a complete street carnival company, including every
animal, tent and person connected
with the organization, forms an interesting chapter of the production
history of "Something to Think
About," which will he shown at the
Ilo-llo on Saturday night. Cecil B.
De Mille, producer of (his unusual
Paramount screen drama, wished to
establish iu the mind of his central
feminine character the difference between two men—tlie one youthful and
virile, the other older aud crippled.
Witli this object iu mind, be selected a day ut a typical country fair as
the time and place. The two men, the
girl and her father comprise one
group of visitors.
But it wns necessary to duplicate
the country fair in question. Tills
difficulty was solved by leasing a
travelling street carnival company for
a period of one week und adding to
this background half a thousand "extra people."
The carnival included the usual fat
lady, the snake charmer, fire-eater.
bula hula dancers and other freaks
and strangely talented performers.
All entered Into the spirit of the picture and lent to this episode a striking note of realism.
But "Something to Think About"
has, in addition to tills feature, several
settings of remarkable beauty. It is
one of tlie most wonderful photoplays
ever produced by this famous director. It is a story in which the idea
of right thinking as well as living is
admirably handled. Its theme is of
the loftiest and its treatment of that
high artistic standard which has made
De Mille's productions a household
word everywhere.
13 CANDLESTICKS
UNLUCKY  IN  "THE
MIRACLE OF LOVE"
Director Flaunts Suspicion, But
Changes His Mind as Accident is Averted.
The setting for "Tlie Miracle of
Love," the motion picture to he
shown at the Ilo-llo on Monday night
in conjunction with the Athon Company performance, is adapted from
Cosmo Hamilton's novel. It required
massive candlcbra of a certain type.
On the day this bit of property was
brought to the studio when live o'clock
rolled around and all good unionists
quit work and go home, just thirteen
of the giant candlesticks had been
hoisted up the stairs.
"A baker's dozen," announced thc
foreman grimly. "We'll have to make
it fourteen."
"Oil! never mind," said tlie director.
"Thirteen never put a jinx on me."
The words were hardly out of bis
mouth when one of the huge tollaw
sticks crashed down, narrowly missed
his head, and broke in several pieces
on the floor.
"Twelve!" remarked the director
grimly.   "Let it go at that."
GLADYS BROCKWELL IN
"CHASING RAINBOWS'
Gladys Brockwell, the ever popular
William Fox star, ls coming to tlie
Ilo-llo Theatre on Friday next
"Chasing Rainbows." This is the sort
of play In which Miss Brockwell
makes her strongest appeal. She is a
waitress with a heart as big as all
outdoors, according to advance reports, and a mind tliat acts more
quickly than that of a headquarters
detective. The story of "Chasing
Rainbows" certainly is one in which
Miss Brockwell should shine. It is
wholesome and contains pathos, humor
and enough of ihe tragic to throw into   boldest   relief   tiie  happy  ending.
And the brave girl finally finds the
proverbial pot of gold at the end of
her ruinbow. Most of the scenes take
place in and around one of a big chain
of railroad restaurants run by a corporation.

Something To
Think About
Another superb screen sensation, by the brilliant creator nf "Male and Female"
and "Why Change Your Wife?" Amazingly different from any other photoplay De
Mille has ever made.
A tale of plain folk antl bare realities, unfolded with a power and heart-grip that
only "The Miracle Man" has approached. A tale of green lanes and gay streets, ol'
blind youth and grim reckoning, of love, luxury, beauty—and something else that
never before has appeared in a motion picture! Destined to cause mure public discussion than any other drama ever screened.
Yet first, last and always an eye-filling, heart-filling, gorgeous entertainment, thai
every soul who is human will eagerly want to see.

GERMANS PURSUING
MILITARY PREPARATIONS
Marshal Fayolle, who commanded
the French group at armies at tlie
Battle ot* the Somme, and, later, commanded French divisions on the Ital
ian front, declares in an exclusive interview that Germany is earnestly
preparing for a new war, and that unless the Allies take firm action at once
never will carry out the Versailles
treaty.
"The Germans are pursuing military
preparations In an underhand mair
ner," the French warrior declared,
"and the Allies must act with determination now, for later on Germany
will be so strong that we will be unable to impose our will upon her.
"Official Information received from
Germany shows tliat despite tlie stipulations of tlie treaty, our former ad
versarles have not discontinued aggressive preparations, They are camouflaging cannon and machine-guns,
and, above all, are forwarding a huge
aviation programme.
"Wc forbade them to build military
airplanes, but permitted them to continue the manufacture of commercial
machines. Anyone knows how easily
these could lie transformed in a few
hours to bombing planes.
"It may be expected that in tlie next
conflict, immediately war is declared
and perhaps even before. London and
Paris will be deluged with bombs
from these 'commercial squadrons.'
"The Germans then will bomb factories and railroads, hampering mo
billzation and frightening tlie population.
"The Germans havo not been
changed by the war. Some day one
of the Hohenzollems will return to
Berlin. Everything seems bent now
towards a crisis.
"Germany always will remain the
same—tenacious and Industrious, but
cunning and pugnacious, Some peo
pie train wolves as watchdogs, but
eventually they become wolves again
"1 do not speak In this way through
hatred for the Germans. I do not hate
tliem. I wish they were quite dltl'er-
ent, But they have just given us
fresh proof of their dishonesty by refusing to fulfill their agreement concerning tlie payment of the war indemnity they owe.
"The Allies should treat Germany
exactly as a creditor treats an unscrupulous debtor—take guarantees
and hold thorn until the debt is paid
in full."
JAPANESE RUINING
B. C. CASCARA TREES
A shipment of five tons of casrara
bark from the coast valleys of British
Columbia lias revealed the fact that
the only known supply of this valuable medicinal bark, in large quantities is in this province, the forests
of Washington and Oregon having
been completely stripped. Largo
quantities of the bark are collected
every year by Japanese loggers, who
ship It to American and British linns.
Stripping of tbe bark destroys the
tree, and though efforts have been
made to induce the Japanese to leave
a strip which would eventually grow
round the trunk, these have failed.

YOUR TEETH
V.—Diseases of Childhood.
By Rea Proctor McGee, M.D., D.D.S.
Editor of "Oral Hygiene."
The highest death-rate is between
the ages of two and six years. At
two years the eruption of the temporary teetli is just being completed and
at six years the eruption of the permanent teeth is just beginning. This
period, from two until six, is Ihe time
that the temporary teeth are in their
prime. If the twenty little teeth are
free from decay and the child is able
to chew its fond so that the proper
nourishment will be extracted, the
little body will have strength to resist or overcome nearly all of the infections that may come to childhood.
The temporary teeth are of greater
importance to the child than are the
permanent teeth to the adult, because
a child must not only be nourished to
keep up the ordinary life processes,
but it must have nourishment for
rapid growth iu addition.
The temporary teeth decay much
more rapidly than thc permanent
teeth because their structure is not so
dense, and in addition the pulp is
more quickly exposed because it is
larger in proportion to the size of tbe
tooth. Nearly all dentists are agreed
that the treatment of a temporary
tooth with an exposed pulp is hopeless. The best that can be done in
such a case is to give temporary relief. If the temporary teeth are lost,
they cannot be satisfactorily replaced.
The permanent teeth lie in the baby
jaw just beyond the roots of the temporary teeth and are only partially
formed even at the time of their
eruption. If the baby teetli are allowed to abscess, the growing permanent teeth are bathed iu pus and
will probably he seriously damaged or
totally ruined. Children are highly
susceptible to pus. Abscesses of temporary teeth produce general infections that result in lowered vitality,
rheumatism, heart inflammation aud
many other diseases that are very
serious and sometimes fatal. Don't
neglect your children's temporary
teeth. Both the present aud future
welfare of your child depends upon
the health of thc mouth.

DRILLING DECAPE1)
TEETH UNNECESSARY
Those who have suffered while a
dentist drilled at a decayed tooth will
be interested to a bear of new preparation recently discovered. It is
called a "tooth solvent."
This is an acid or organic derivation that will dissolve the decayed
portions of a cavity. Simply by dipping a tiny swab iu the liquid and applying it to the surfaces to be removed, both dentine and enamel can
be painlessly taken out.
It has beeu estimated thai this advance will reduce the cost of dentistry
something like fifteen per cent. 11 is
to he hoped that this preparation will
soon be made practicable. If it is,
who can estimate the number of persons who would cheerfully submit to
dental work.
"Say, I was fool enough to tell thai
dentist that you sent me to him."
"Fool enough? What difference did
It make?"
"Oh, not much! He just made me
pay cash in advance."
Clara: "She asked that question out
of idle curiosity, don't you think?"
Elsie: "No; busy curiosity. Her
curiosity is never idle."
MISS MARY BOND

Doctor Says Smaller Hospitals

Training.
At Merritt recently, Miss Mary
Bond, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Frank
Bond of Cumberland, graduated from
the .Nicola Valley Hospital with high
honors. Miss C. G. Batten also completed her course at the same time.
It Is expected that Miss Bond will be
in Cumberland about the end of the
present month.
The graduation exercises took place
in the K. 1'. Hall, where there was a
large number of citizens gathered.
The ceremony itself, which consisted
of the presentation of medals, diplomas and ot the Florence Nightingale
pledge, was an impressive one.
lu congratulating the graduating
nurses. Dr, Tut ill referred to their
conscientiousness. "1 know," he said,
"for i have come into personal con-
tacl with them when lecturing to
them. I want to express tlie very
great pleasure it has always given
me it) see what interest they have always taken in their instructions.
That is proven by the fact that when
I examined them a few days ago, one
received !>7 out of 100 and another 94,
and the other nurses were uot far
behind.
"They are the equal of any nurses
sent out from any hospital iu this
province or on the continent. This I
say with all sincerity. I find that
some people think that nurses turned
out of our local institution are not as
good as those turned out of a larger
hospital. I want to correct this mis*
taken idea. Take, for instance, the
Vancouver General Hospital, as
sample of a larger institution., The
nurses there must of necessity be
turned out In a machine-like manner
In our own institution we come Into
closed contact with them, aud while
we may not have as many cases as
the larger places, we have the variety
and tlie training is better. We go
over our cases with the nurses and
treat them as confrere."
Tlie Noblest Profession.
"You are enrolled in one of the
noblest professions in the world,"
said Dr. J. J. Gillis. "I congratulate
you on thc honesty and conscientiousness you have displayed during your
term of nursing.
"I used to think it a detriment to
train in a small hospital, but 1 have
since changed my mind; in fact I am
convinced that a nurse turned out of
a small hospital should be better
equipped to enter the field of general
nursing.
"The nursing and medical professions are so linked together that, they
are inseparable. Wonderful progress
bas been made during the past few
years in surgery as well as in medicine. We know more of the causes
of disease and the effect; but when
we come to treat, the progress has
uot been so marked. There are many
common diseases, such as pneumonia
md measles, for which no specific
cure has been found. The treatment
is plainly nursing. Tbe doctor's
place is not to treat but to diagnose.
"Nurses must he self-sacrificing,
honest and truthful as well as educated--the more education they have
the better. They must be self-confident, and must ever have a sunny
smile. 1 ask the two nurses tonight
to keep in mind those high ideals,
and if you do, you will be asuccess
and your work will be a pleasure lo
you."

GETTING OVER THE
RAILWAY DIFFICULTY
Several men of national* standing.
Including Mr. E. W. Beatty, president
ot the C.P.R. Company, and Hon. T. A.
Crerar, one of the leaders lu Federal
polities, urge that thc way to meet thc
over-built railway condition of the
country is to Import popplatlon to settle upon the vast unpopulated areas.
Instead of building railways to serve
her communities, Canada, according
to this view. Is faced with the duty of
establishing communities lo justify
the railways.
But, as a solution to our present
national railway difficulties, the policy
of encouraging immigration offers no
immediate relief. At best, this way of
getting around the trouble is a lengthy
process. Furthermore, experience
has shown the extreme difficulty of
getting newcomers from abroad to go
on the land or to stay there. Possibly
the attraction of industrial and social
advantages in the cieles would to a
considerable extent nullify the force
of any future policy of encouraging
greater immigration as a solution of
the country's railway problem.
The bringing Iu of new settlers must
remain a settled policy of this or any
other young nation witli surplus land
to be taken up, but the pressing burden of our over-built railways ls not
to be shifted so easily off the backs of
the Canadian people.
Further, It may he perfectly true
that our railways will be lucrative Investments In, say, twenty years' time.
Mow does that help this generation to
meet Its present obligations? How, In
fact, in tho country to retain Its solvency and carry its mounting indebtedness for twenty years? Or, how arc
we to carry on until immigration has
in the course of years filled our unpopulated areas?
PLAN A NATATORIUM
TO COST OVER S200,000
Restaurant and Auditorium To
Be Features of Proposed
Structure.
A natatorlum for Vancouver to cost
In the neighborhood of $230,000, as a
lirst unit of a scheme to embrace winter gardens and a public auditorium,
was outlined before the Vancouver
Real Estate Exchange by Mr. Jonathan
Rogers, chairman of tlie Park Board.
Plans include provision for a swimming pool 40 feet by 100 feet, with
capacity for 170 swimmers at ono
time; a men's section with 40 private
dressing rooms nnd 100 lockers, a general dressing room with 96 lockers,
and a women's section with 21 dressing boxes and 1)0 lockers, hair drying
room, toilets and showers.
Ou tlie main floor tiie plans siinw
entrance hall and ticket office, a gallery to seat 400 spectators, a restaurant and manager's quarters. On
the tipper floor provision is shown for
12 men's brine baths, eight ladies'
brine tub baths, committee rooms and
manager's quarters.
The pool itself would be hy far tho
largest iu Canada, the next largest,
being in Winnipeg, where two pools
measure 30 feet by 70 feet and 42
feet by 75 feet respectively. It is so
designed as suitable for (he average
swimmer, but also for children, high
diving, waler polo and club and championship racing.
"Waller, I ordered chicken soup.
What do you call this?" demanded the
angry diner.
"Chicken soup, sir — it's young
chicken soup, air."
"Young chicken soup! What do you
mean hy tbat ?"
"Well, it's the water wo boil tho
eggs in."
