VOL. VI., No. 3 THE ISLANDER. CUMBERLAND, B.C., SATURDAY, APRIL 10. 1915.       Subscription price, $1.50 per year
MUSICAL TREAT
A large and unusual congregation attended the evening service
of Grace Methodist Church on
Sunday evening, the attraction
being the announcement that the
Cumberland Gleemen, known as
the famous male voice choir,
were to take part in the Easter
Service and had full charge of
the music for the evening, besides
leading in a number of hymns
appropriate to the occasion. The
Gleemen, of fifteen voices, were
under the leadership of Mr. E.T.
Searle, who acted as leader in the
absence of Mr. Geo. Odgers, sang
in their usual excellent style the
"Hallelujah Chorus," "0 taste
and see." "Arise. Shine," and
"Lead Kindly Light," making it
a delightful song service, seldom
heard in this city.
The pastor, Rev. Wm. Elliott,
B.A., preached a short sermon
dealing with the seeming failure
of Christ's work at the time of
his death, whereas it was really a
glorious success, and showing that
genuine Christian work often
appears for awhile a failure but
must finally win its way.
The expression, *' It was fine,"
was enthusiastically passed from
one to another by the members of
the large congregation on leaving
the Grace Methodist Church Sunday evening. Those who had the
privilege of hearing the Gleemen
enjoyed a treat that is only too
rare in Cumberland.
The same male voice choir will
take part in the evening service
at St. George's Presbyterian
Church to-morrow.
Hazel Frame, teacher at the
Mount   Pleasant   public school,
Vancouver, is here on a visit to
her parents.
Wm. McFayden, Effie McFayden and Agnes Frame, left Cumberland by auto a week ago Friday, and spent the Easter holidays at Victoria.
Miss E. Louden, of the Ilo-Ilo
Theatre, left on Monday on a visit
to Laysmith, and returned on
Thursday.
Aid. T. H. Carey is reported to
be improving.
ROYSTON ORGANIZES.
Several members of the executive of the Cumberland and West
Cumberland Conservative Associations visited Royston on April
1st, and lielcUi public meeting in j
the Rovston school house for the i
purpose of organizing a Conservative Association at that thriving j
little town on the water front.     ]
D. R. MacDonald, President of
the Central Association, address-
ed the large audience on the pol- j
icy of the Conservative party in 1
this province in an able manner.
Several other speakers addressed the audience on Conservatism
and left such an impression that
it was decided to organize the
Royston Conservative Association
at once, with the following officers:—
David Roy, President.
Chas. Simms, vice-President.
Alex. Summerville, Treasurer.
Chas. M. Houghton, Secretary.
An energetic committee of five
was appointed to canvass that
section of the district and

MAYOR COMMENDS BOYS.
The Boy Scouts, under the leadership of Scoutmaster John C.

knowledge and skill which they
displayed in ambulance work.
The Mayor presented the leader
of the troop with a cheque for

RUMORED   WITHDRAWAL.
It is generally rumored around
town that the headquarters of the
U.M.W. of A.  have withdrawn
their charter from this Island. If
the northern end of the Island j this be true, as a prominent citi-
report.that part of the .district |zen suggested, we should have a
The SS. Wellington, now owned
by the Canadian Collieries (Duns
muir) Ltd., has left the drydock
at Esquimalt and arrived at Union
Bay where her engines will under
go extensive repairs before reentering into the coal trade.
The Canadian Collieries operate
modern machine shops at this
point employing a large force of
mechanics, where all the rebuilding of machinery is carried out
for the local mines. All tie
equipment is at the shops for the
overhauling of the Wellington.
It is only a few weeks ago that
these same shops turned out a
first class passenger coach, which
is now running between Cumberland and Union Bay, via Bevan,
Courtenay and Royston, connecting with the E. & N. Railway
going south to Victoria.
The management of the Canadian Collieries were very consid-
trate in not allowing the repairs
to the Wellington to be done by
contract at some other point.
By ordering the steamer Wellington to Union Bay for repairs
it will enable the company's
mechanics to work full time.

THE WAY OF THE WORLD.
The man who imagines friendship will borrow money at the
bank is doomed to disappointment.
Your friend may lend you his
shovel, but he expects you to return his hoe in good condition.
Your friend may enquire after
your wife's health, but it does
not follow that you can turn your
chickens into his garden.
If you get sick don't expect the
world to stop moving right along.
If you are in want, that is nothing to the people whojhave plenty.
If you are in trouble, that is
nothing to the people who have
something to rejoice over.
The world owes you only just
what you can earn.
The world owes you room to
pass to and fro and space for a
grave.
The world's friendship reduces
a man to rags as it clothes him in
fine raiment.
The world's sympathy blisters
a man's back as often as it warms
his heart.
The world's charity overlooks
the crime of a horse thief, but is
horror stricken over the stealing
of a loaf of bread by an orphan.
The world promises everything
and performs only what is convenient.
The man who relies on the
honesty of the public instead of
the house dog, will have no harvest apples for sale.
The man who pauses at each
stage of his career for the world
to applaud or condemn, will become a football for all men to
kick.
Expect no friendship to last
bsyond the moment when you
want help.
Expect no sympathy to endure
longer than it takes for tears to
dry.
Expect no praise from men
the same profession trade
business.

If trains are as hard to stop as
some habits, few would ever be
started. No one would ever dare
ride on them. Never start a
habit you think you may want to
stop. It saves a great deal of
trouble not to start it.
TRIMMED AND BURNING.
Recently a metropolitan paper
printed an item about a man who
kept a lamp in his window for
forty years to guide his sweetheart to his western home. She
never came, but the lamp burned
brightly just the same. His faith
did not falter. He had implicit
trust. Though she had been
drowned at sea, yet every night
he trimmed his lamp and set it as
a beacon for her feet.
All over the land such beacon
lights are burning, even in our
little inland towns, far from the
surge of the rolling sea. When
once this light of love is kindled,
the winter winds blow in vain to
extinguish it. When the storm
is at its height, when the fog
gathers the thickest, then it is
that the faithful light burns the
clearest. The rays from this lone
lamp have more of strength and
beauty than could be packed into
the crown jewels of an emperor.
There has just been issued by
the Department of Agriculture
through the branch of the Experimental Farms, a brief pamphlet containing seasonable hints
for the information of stock
raisers and gardeners. While it
contains only twelve pages, it is
replete with suggestions and recommendations made in the hope
that some of them at least will be
helpful to each and every reader
who secures a copy. Copies of
this pamphlet are being sent to
those whose names are on the
mailing list of the Department,
but the pamphlet is also available
to others who make application
to the Publications Branch of the
Department at Ottawa.
A good rule for your happiness
is to add to your sum of contentment, subtract from the amount
of your desires, multiply your
quantity of religion and divide
your percentage of love.

1; iis War Tax is to be prepaid
by the senders by means of a War
Stamp for sale by postmasters
and other postage stamp vendors.
Wherever possible, stamps on
which the words "War Tax"
have been printed should be used
for prepayment of the War Tax,
but should ordinary postage
stamps be used for this purpose,
they may be accepted. Postmasters are requested to use
every endeavour to have War
Stamps used in prepaying the
War Tax.
lt will be the duty of the Postmaster to see that on and from
the 15th April, 1915, each letter
and postcard above specified bears
in addition to necessary postage
either a War Stamp or one cent
additional postage.
The War Tax does not apply to
letters and postcards posted in
Canada for delivery elsewhere
than as above specified, that is,
it does not apply where postal
union rates already apply, nor
d >es it apply to matter posted
elsewhere than in Canada.
It is essentia! that postage on
o i all classes of mail matter
should be pri paid by means of
ordinary postage stamps. The
War Tax Stamp will not be ac-
c pted in any case for the pn pay-
ment of postage.
A War Tax of one cent is to be
levied upon postal notes irrespec ,
