Recent Disaster
at Cumberland
The reteut disaster at the local
mines, when bo many volunteered

Good Attendance
at Comox Fair
The annual Comox Fall Fair, held'
on Tuesday and Wednesday of this
week, was exceptionally well attended. The weather was never very
favourable, but the rain managed to
hold oft until Wednesday afternoon
when a very heavy downpour oc
curred. There Is no doubt that many
hundreds were kept away by the un
settled state of the weather.
The fruit and vegetables exhibit
should porhaps be given premier
place, the display being an excep
tlonally One one. In some Instances
the judge remarked on the extraordinary size of Borne of the vegetables,
lu the fruit section, pears and plums
appeared to take premier place, an
exceedingly fine showing being made
by these two fruits. As to Held produce, spuds took the premier place,
and the entries totalled 32, as against
22 last year.
Among the attractions on the field
was a baby show. Dr. Brlggs undertaking the difficult task of selecting
the most perfect from eleven specimens; the baby of Mrs. Herbert Foreman being awarded first place.
The Attorney-General of the province, the Hon. A. M. Manson, officially
opened the Fair, amid great enthusiasm. He Bald that'while B. C. bad
a great diversity ot products they
must never allow It to be forgotten
that tt was a great agricultural province; last year it came second only
to lumber as a producer. Mr. Manson
thought It was regrettable that last
year they Imported Into the province
$15,000,000 worth of agricultural produce from other provinces, and
$5,000,000 worth trom foreign countries, while they exported only
$5,000,000. Last year there was a decrease ln imports ot 21 per cent, and
be hoped that in the next five or ten
years B. C. would be an exporting
province in agriculture. This was his
first visit to the northern end of Van
couver Island and he was very glad
to get acquainted. He thought that li
representatives at Ottawa knew by
pergonal contact, more of Canada a i
a whole and representatives at Victoria more of B. C. as a whole, they
would have much wiser and better
legislation.
AUSPICIOUS OPENING
THE CITY SCHOOL
A NOTABLE ANNIVERSARY.
To-day Is an anniversary which
should never be forgotten In the history ot Canadian arms, for four years
ago to-day the Hlndeuburg Line was
first broken, and the Canadians had
(be honour of doing the breaking. It
is a little difficult now to conjure up
in Imagination, the rejoicing which
this event caused throughout the Allied nations when the news was
flashed world-wide by wire and cable.
Six days ago The World editorially
noticed tho anniversary of the Battle
of Arras, which was opened on Aug.
!0 by the Canadian Corps, with the
Second and Third Canadian Divisions
In the line. These two divisions bore
Die brunt of tbe fight for the next
three days, being relieved only on the
night of August 28-29 by the First
Canadian Division on the right, the
Fourth Canadian Division In the centre and the Fourth British Division
tin tho left. The Second and Third
Divisions had lost heavily In fighting
tlielr way forward to the foot of the
Drocourt-Queant switch, and the final
-iperatlon fell to the Third and Fourth
Divisions, together with the Fourth
llrltlsli Division, which had been
placed under the Corps Command.
The enemy fought desperately, continually bringing up fresh divisions
and delivering violent counter-attacks
on the afternoon and evening of Sept
1, and there was frequent hand-to
hand fighting. All five of the Canadian Artillery Divisions engaged In
the heavy and field artillery attack
nnd the tanks did fine work. There
were literally fields of wire entangle
ments to be traversed. It was an Infantryman's battle. Five thousand
unwounded prisoners were taken and
the Canadian Infantry penetrated the
enemy's defence to a depth of six
thousand yards.
Thus, to-day, four years ago, breach
was first made in the most formidable
sector of this vast and elaborate fortified system, upon which (or years
every art of German military engineering had been lavished. It seemed
Ihat during the week from August 26
the Canadian Corps had fought itself
to a standstill. For this reason the
shattering nature of the final blow
came as a complete surprise. It Is
not too much to say that this great
victory, which, In the main, the Canadians may, with due modesty, claim
The Woman Who
Walked Alone
The Honorable Iris Champueys
agrees to a 'marriage of convenience'
with the old Earl of Lemlster. Iris
malms the sacrifice so Ihat her younger sister Muriel may ho proporly Introduced In society und marry well.
Muriel has a secret affair with Otis
Yeardloy, a penniless society blackleg.
In a mad chase to overtake and deliver a parting gift to some peasants
who are leaving for South Africa, Irk
meets Clement Gaunt, an American
graduate ot Oxford, who Is working
as chauffeur to gain money to go to
Africa. His aid to Iris causes him
lo be late with the car, and he Is discharged. Iris bas put money iu his
pocket without his knowledge. He
decides to use this as a loan. He sees
Iris once more, as she comes out ot
the chapel a bride, and she throws
him a rose.
The Earl becomes jealous and
bribes the servants to spy upon Iris.
A letter from Clem, returning the
money, provokes a quarrel. In Africa,
Clem's mining ventures fall and he
goes north Into the veldt and becomes
foreman for a Boer rancher, Schrle-
mann. The latter's wife, Hannah,
forms an attachment for "Yankee
Jim," as Clem Is known. Faithful to
his love for Iris, he evades her.
At a ball at Lemlster Castle, Is announced the engagement of Muriel to
Sir Basil Deere, a wealthy young Englishman. Yeardley blackmails Muriel,
threatening to give letters she has
written him, to Sir Basil, unless she
gives him, Otis, a large sum of money.
Muriel hasn't the money, and goes to
Iris, who agrees to get the letters for
her. She gets the letters but a venal
servants reports to tbe Earl, who
makes a violent scene. Iris, unable
to explain without endangering her
sister's happiness, remains silent and
the Earl orders her from the castle.
The letters arc burned.   —

Of The Season
The first football game of the season lu the Upper Island League will
be played at the Recreation Grounds,
Cumberland, on Sunday, Sept. loth.
when the crack Ladysmlth eleven will
meet the local team. The visitors are
expected to" have a stronger team this
season than ever before, consequently
a fast game Is anticipated. Several
new players will be seen on the local
team. During the season Stewart,
who played at right back for Cumberland, migrated to Nanaimo. but Is
back ln town again, and In all probability will catch a permanent place
on the team. Jock Irvine, one ot tiie
most consistent half-backs Cumberland ever had, will not be seen In tha
local colors this season. Jock Is now
located In Vancouver, and is reported
lo be lined up with the I. L. A. team.
The exact line-up of the visitors
Is not known at the time or going to
press, but however strong a team they
send up, the locals will make them
play from start to finish of the game.
The following will do duty for Cumberland, and—on paper—appears I
be a really fine combination: Goal
Boyd; Backs, Stewart and Campbell;
Half-backs, Brewster, Kenny (Capt);
Conti; Forwards, Patterson, Mulligan, Davies, Hitchens. Home; Reserves: Faulds, Plump and James.

The Cumberland Public School re-
oponed on Tuesday morning with
about 400 pupils In attendance. Trusses Mrs. T. E. Banks and Secretary
McKlnnon were present to welcome
the teachers back to work.
Mr. A. H. Webb, tho uew principal,
had tiie pupils assembled on the upper floor, where the partitions ln the
library bave been made to fold back
lo accommudate I bom all. After wishing the pupils " Good Morulng," the
principal led tho scholars In tbe'
Lord's Prayer, and then "O Canada"
was sung.
Mr. Webb then addressed bis
charges. He welcomed them back tu
school and wished them the best of
juccess at their work for the term.
He encouraged those who had passed
io work this term so as to again make
the grade. He pointed out tbat the
"repeaters had a harder row to hoe
than the others, and urged them to
Jo their best to get a step ahead next
lime promotions were made.
Cumberland Public School In 1920-
21 stood next to the bottom among
the City schools of B. C. ln attendance, with a percentage of 74.9. With
20 per cent absent, how could they
expect to do good work? To help
improve matters, he promised to give
the class making the highest percentage attendance each week, and
also having no " lates," a full half
hour's play during school hours. A
shield is also up tor competition for
the best attendance for the month.
Two warnings were issued—one
against bad language and the other
against smoking. These offences will
bring Immediate punishment. The
Principal then asked the pupils If they
thought they were equal to the pupils
at Bevan, Courtenay, Royston or Nanaimo. On receiving an affirmative
answer ln each case, he suggested
taking on Victoria and Vancouver.
Even this did not daunt the young
folks, so they were asked to remember
that to do a job like tbat they would
bave to "Play the Game," take the
bad with the good, and when punishment was allotted to them (and almost alt healthy boys and girls got
Into trouble at some time), to take
their medicine without sulking and
whining and set to work again aa If
nothing had happened. If they could
do that they could get anywhere they
wished.
They were asked to repeat: "Cumberland Public School—Our School-
Second to None." This was done Willi
a will. They were then reminded that
Cumberland Public School did not
stand tor the present pupils only, but
for a long Hue of splendid men and
•■vunien who had passed through Its
doors during the past thirty years or
o. For this greater body they wero^
i^ked to give three hearty cheers, to
which they responded ln a real Cumberland way.

Events.
The various events iu the sporting
life of Cumberland, which were due
lo be held last week-end, were all

tootball season was due to be opened
on Saturday, but this game was postponed. In the baseball line, the Japs
cancelled the fixture with Bevan, and
the Cumberland and Union Bay game

dates were also set back, but It is
likely the finals will be completed

SAFETY FIRST.
"Safety FirBt" is a good maxim: ln
most things, but particularly bo ln relation to the investment of money.
The rich may afford to speculate and
to take the risks attendant on high
rates of Interest. Those whose meanB
are moderate must be careful to tee
that there Is absolute security ln their
investments. For such people there
is no other form of Investment Which
takes such a high rank, combining absolute security with liberal interest,
as the bonds of the Dominion of Canada. Holders of Dominion bonds
bearing five atid-a-half per cent, maturing December 1,1922, can re-invest
their money at the same rate of In
terest by exchanging the old bonds
for new ones running either five years
or ten years, as the bondholder may
prefer. Arrangements for carrying
out this exchange can be made
through all tbe chartered banks.

To most people, the connecting or disconnecting of a Telephone seems a simple
operation of installing or removing the
instrument. As a matter of fact, in every
-, case it necessitates changes in the cables
and wires overhead or underground. It also necessitates changes in Central Office wires and switchboard
fro mopen wires or cables. The problems of station
connections; in subscribers' accounts and directory
listings; and frequently requires new '(drop" lines
from open wires or cables. The problems of station
movement are among the large problems of telephone
service. Eecause of the double operation of disconnecting and reconnecting, the work involved is often
twice as great as in the case of new subscribers.

THE   CUMBERLAND   ISLANDER
THREE
Government   Agent Endorses
BEER
THE BEER WITHOUT A PEER
Vancouver-made Product is put to acid test on most difficult
foreign markets in the world, and comes off with flying colors^
Cascade Beer has made good
in India. This is the most trying climate in the world, and yet
Cascade Beer kept there for
more than a year had the same
pleasant tang and was just as]
fresh and pleasing to the taste
as when it left the Vancouver
Breweries.
•
There is no less an authority
for this than H. A. Chisholm,
trade commissioner for the Dominion Government. Writing
to the Commercial Intelligence
Journal, published by the Canadian Government, under date
of May 13, this year, Mr. Chisholm says in part:
"The last consignment reaching Calcutta is said to have been
a shipment of 'Cascade' from
Vancouver, landed in March,
1921.
"It speaks well of this brand
of Canadian Beer that, although
it has been in store for over a
year in one of the1 most trying
climates in the world, its quality
has not deteriorated and none of
it has gone bad. Its 'crown
caps' seem to have protected the
contents better than corks have
the German lagers. The writer
was informed that this brand of
Canadian Beer, although not as
heavy as English Ale, produced
a pleasant stimulating effect on
the stomach that German lagers
could not produce. According to
many informants, this particular quality in Canadian Beer is
just what is demanded in the
tropics."
Can there be a better endorsement than this for a hot-
weather drink? Here is Cascade—a Vancouver-made product—that can be shipped to
India, held for more than a year,
and when opened prove to be
more palatable and better adapted for a tropical beverage than
beer manufactured right in
India or imported from other
famous breweries of the world.
Stick to "Cascade" this hot
weather.
THE BEER WITHOUT A PEER
For more than Thirty Years Cascade has been the Favorite Beer
of Western Canada.

NOTICE
The publicity campaign being carried on by the students of the University of British Columbia with the object of acquainting the people of the
province with the adverse condition?
under~which they carry on in the temporary site in Vancouver, received a
big boost during Exhibition week In
Vancouver, when 3,500 signatures
were secured to the petition which
asks the Government for "a definite
and progressive policy towards the
University of British Columbia." and
Hint "Immediate steps be taken to
erect permanent buildings on the
chosen Bite of the University at Point
Grey."
The students established stalls lu
Ihe Educational and Manufacturers'
Buildings at Hastings Park, and actively solicited BlgnatureB from 4he
visitors to the Fair. Miss Marjorie
Agnew. B.A., Becretsry of the student
campaign committee, was In charge,
and she was asslted by many students
who were In Vancouver for the week.
Douglas Pollock, of Arts "SSSwas the
orignlator of the idea, and the college
stands were decked out with signs
giving salient facts about the University and setting forth the objectives
of the campaign.
"During the week we secured nearly
4,000 names to our petition, and we
spread a great deal of useful information about the UnlverBlty," declared Miss Agnew. "Many out-of-
town visitors did not know much
about the college, and they were' surprised to learn that we bave the second largest number of students In
the faculty ot arts In the Dominion of
Canada, and that we had no permanent buildlngB at Point Grey."
More than 500 petition forms have
now been returned to the central committee, and otherB are pouring in
rapidly from all parts of the province. Each petition form Is signed by
twenty-five electors, so that the total
number of voters pledged to support
the University 1b rapidly reaching an
encouraging figure. It 1b expected
that more than 25,000 will sign the
petition before it is presented to the
Provincial Government In the Fall.
Mr. W. Sutcllffe, B.A., 1919, who Is
now an Instructor In economics at
Simmons College, was one ot the Exhibition viBitorB, and he Immediately
offered his assistance, spending an entire afternoon soliciting signatures.
He was president of the Alma Mater
Society ln his final year at college
and a member of the International debuting team ou two occasions.
"We have been trying for many
yenrfl to get some action nut of the
Government, but have had little success so far," he declared. "This campaign, however, seems to be accomplishing things, and I #lsh my fellow-
students every success in the Fall
when student speakers go before the
people."
Mr. W. O. Banfleld, B.Sc, 1922, who
was treasurer of the Alma Mater Society lost session, addressed the final
meeting of the summer school
students at the University, securine
their support In the campaign.
In addition to these activities, a circular letter has been sent out by the
central committee to all students,
urging continued work In the campaign lu preparation for the more
general appeal In the Fall.
\. EFFECTIVE IMMEDIATELY ALL WASTE OF WATER MUST STOP.
^ Owing to tRe prolonged dry weather we find that it is necessary to restrict the use of
water, as if we allow the present enormous consumption to continue the town may, in the event
of no rainfall for the next two months, be faced  with a water famine.
"    In YOUR interests and for tha protection of YOUR property in the event of a fire, we
find It necessary to bring into effect immediately the following regulations:—
(1). Water must not be used for sprinkling or irrigating purposes except—FOR dNE
HOUR ONLY—from 7 a.m. to 8 a.m.
(2)." The practice of using water for the purpose of watering sidewalks, streets, etc.,
must cease. Persons using water for these purposes are liable to have their services disconnected until such time as we can install a meter on their supply.
\' (8). Leaking taps, toilets, pipes, fittings, etc., must immediately be brought into good
repair as any premises on which water is found wasting from these causes will be disconnected
Without further notice.
- -  \. There is absolutely no desire on the part of this Company to curtail the use of
Water when same is used in a proper manner for domestic purposes, but in a large number of
cases we find this privilege being abused and should the abuse continue we shall be forced to consider the installation of water meters, which would make the cost of water much heavier for the
same consumption.
We once more draw to your attention the fact that this is being done in YOUR
interests as every leaking tap or pipe or sprinkler used unnecessarily lowers the water pressure
and consumes water that may be needed in a few weeks more for household purposes or may be
needed TODAY to extinguish a fire on YOUR property.
-',;•__- .   Thanking you in anticipation of your co-operation in this matter, we are,
/..-j*' ...   ' Yours truly,
