FROM THE FIRING LINE
A Synopsis of Letter From
Sergeant J. C. Brown, No. 2
Tunnelling Co. Somewhere
In France.
Yesterday being Sunday, a
beautiful day, three reliefs of
'our section were up in the saps
so, its I had not anything to do I
obtained leave to go to— which
is quite a number of miles from
here. Of course I did not walk
as I have a cycle—pari of my
issue. After I had gone a number of miles I spotted a Canadian
Battalion resting in a field near
by the wayside. I got off my
cycle, leaned it against a post
then commenced to scan the
faces to see if I could pick out
anyone whom I knew. Suddenly 1 heard a voice cry, "Hello
Johnnie!" I stopped dead. Immediately up jumped Dick Ray
and come rushing over, I at the
same lime climbed up the bank to
meet him. You bet we did not
half shake hands. Then Harry
Wallace from another part of the
Battalion joined us. We three
sat down for an hour and talked
about Cumberland. Both put to
me many home questions.
Their Battalion had been
marching for five hours and
though they seemed a bit tired
they looked very well indeed.
Both were cheerful and asked
that when I next wrote home to
say that I .had met with them and
that they were in the best of
health. So soon as their Battalion
fell in I again started on my way
for—as my chief misson was in
search of Geordie, (his brother)
1 did not get far on the way till
1 struck what seemed familiar
ground. On the side of the road
a sign post pointed the way to
Vancouver. A little farther on
others pointed the way to Stanely
Park, Hasting St., Powell St.,
Granville St. etc. These are
trenches made and named by
Vancouver boys. Around on the
other side are the "dug outs"
where Geordie's company is located. To my enquiry, "Have you
a 'Brown' dug-in here?" I got
the answer, " Hello, Brown!
there's a sergeant here who
wants to see you." Right enough
it was Geordie so, I leave it to
you to imagine, our greetings.
After a cup of tea we went for a
stroll. We didn't talk war. Oh
no! we talked of home and of
the loved ones there. He looks
tine but wearying for a holiday.
I s'iouUI say he needs one, when
you consider that for the past
8 months he has been living
under the continuous roar of big
guns and bursting shells. With
him 1 spent the best Sunday
afternoon since I left home,
When parting we did not say
good-bye nor shake hands as such
is not customary out here. While
writing this Corporal Hewlett
makes a call. Off we go for a
walk. The time we spent together was both pleasant and profitable. He wishes to be remembered to his many friends in Cum
berland and vicinity. He told me
of having met with J. H. Vaughn
son of Mrs. E. Baldwin, who
came out with the 29th Battalion
now in a Pioneer Battalion.
The last mail brought me 6
consecutive copies of the "Islander." The news in this paper
seems more interesting to me
out here than it ever did at home
I hope to be home with you by
Christmas next. I believe we
shall have the Huns shifted to
their own side of the Rhine ere
the close of the summer,
A Red Cross Tea under the
auspices of the Women's Patriotic Society of Cumberland will
be held at the home of Mrs.E. W.
Bickle on Tuesday May 23rd.,
followed by a dance in the llo Ilo
dance hall in the evening. Particulars later.
TO CELEBRATE
EMPIRE DAY
Cumberland Decides to Fittingly
Celebrate May 24th with a
Good Program of Sports.
A public meeting was held in
the Council Chambers on Tuesday evening to make arrange"
ments for the 24th, of May sports.
His Worship, Mayor Parnham,
occupied the chair and in a few
well chosen remarks outlined the
object of the meeting, when it
was decided to celebrate Empire
Day in this city and vicinity as
usual. Several present spoke of
the dull times and thought it
would be impossible to raise a
large amount of money for sports.
Wesley Willard, treasurer for
the 1915 spo: ts, who was present,
said the amount raised last year
way $406.55, and the year before
that, 1914. was i'l, 133.55." The
large representative audience finally came to the conclusion that
donations to the amount of $500
could be secured for the 1916
sports.
The following officials to take
charge of the sports were appointed:
His Worship, Mayor Parnham,
president; John Gillespie, vice-
president; Thos. Mordy, secretary; Wesley Willard, treasurer.
Collecting Committee: No. 4 Mine
John Furbwv and Thos. Mordy;
No. 5 Mine, John Gillespie; No.
6 Mine, Hugh Sloan and Frank
Jaynes; Electrical Department,
W. H. White; Union Bay, Messrs. Campbell and Haggart. Cumberland, Wesley Willard and E.
W. Bickle. Grounds committee,
Messrs. Bevis, John Brown, William Whyte, T. J. Brown, Jr.,
Bryce, Watson, Ramsell and
Dunn, Sports and program committee: Messrs. Gillespie, Mordy,
Walker, Bevis and Murdock.
Wesley Willard stated that he
had a firemen's cup that was
suitable for a hub-to-hub race
and would donate the cup as a
prize, which was valued at $10,
providing two teams from the
city or district could be induced
to enter the contest. This was
left in the hands of the committee. It was suggested that the
Boy Scouts and Girl Guides parade on the day of the sports,
The meeting then adjourned to
meet again in the Council Chambers on Monday evening at 7 p.
m. to hear the reports of the various committees.

the streets after? in the evening.
D.  R,,McDonald   and David
Walker are doing some expeit
land cleaning immediately outside the Head Office of the Canadian Collieries and just below

just outside the city limits. The
method used for clearing the land
is with a long wire rope attached
to the stump and from there to

The regular meeting of the
City Council was held in the
Council Chambers on Monday evening, His Worship, Mayor Parn-
harm in the chair. Present, Aldermen McDonald, Brown, Bate
and Henderson. The minutes of
the previous meeting and Court
of Revision were adopted as read.
The following communication
was received from Mrs. W. Beveridge, of Pi ince Rupert, representing the Short estate, authorizing the city to remove debris
that had fallen in alleyway from
building collepsed during heavy
fall of snow, and forward the account.
From City Constable Ward concerning lighting system and the
number of lights within the City
limits.
Another letter from the Sanitary Inspector referred to the
Foster drain, which has been very unsatisfactory for sometime.
The managing Secretary of the
Vancouver General Hospital sent
a communication to the Council
and enclosing a statement against
the Municipality for the treatment of patients for the years
1914 and 1915, amounting to
$447.50. It was pointed out by
the City Clerk that all these patients, with the.-fixception of one
resided outside the City limits,
and the one that did reside within the City limits had already
sent a cheque covering the am1
ount owing. The City Clerk sta
ted that he had notified the Van-
couver General Hospital of the
fact.
The following accounts were
referred to the Finance Committee for payment if found correct:
Simon Leiser & Co. $10.50
The Islander 18.98
Aid. Brown of the Board of
Works committee in the absence
of chairman Banks reported the
unsanitary condition of the Fos-
tor drain.-.The Council decided
to give Foster a week to clean
up. Aid. Bate said he had taken
a lonely walk around town and
upon going through the alley ways
found a number of old tins and
rublish and several lots-were in
a bad shape and needed cleaning
up. Aid. McDonald stated that
something must be done to compel these people to clean up,
Jerusalem was in an awful state,
the Park was a disgrace and not
fit to walk through. Evidently
Aid. McDonald had visited the
City Park on Sunday and made
his exit in a hurry. The Mayor
instructed the City night man to
attend to the Park immediately
and Conn promised to remedy
the trouble the following morning.
A motion was finally passed
instructing the City Police to see
that every place was cleaned up
and put in a proper sanitary
shape .without any delay.
The new lighting system came
up for consideration. Aid. McDonald preferred to wait until a
full board was present. Aid. Bate
said he had interviewed the president of the Cumberland Electric
Lighting Company, concerning
theplacing of eight360 candle
power lights on Dunsmuir Ave.,
four to be placed between crossings and to burn until 11 p. m.,
and four to place at cross streets
to burn until daylight. He further stated that the Electric
Light Company would place a 350
candlepower   light   outside the
Subscription price, $1.50 per year
City building free, the Council to
pay for the installation to demonstrate the value of the light.
Aid. McDonald: "Do i understand the Cumberland Electric
Light Company will give the
lamp free for all time?"
Aid. Bate: "The Council could
not expect the Light Company to
supply the light, free for an indefinite period. Our monthly
rental would be the same."
The Mayor: "I would like lo
see that in writing."
Aid. Bate then assured the
Council that the Cumberland Electric Light Company would supply the power free for at least a
month or two to demonstrate the
lighting qualities of a 350 candle
power Nitro lamp. It was then
moved and carried that instructions be given to install the light
outside the City buildings.
Aid. Bate. "Now we have decided to place a light outside of
the building I would suggest that
the front be pointed and donate
a gallon of paint.
Aid. McDonald was not willing
to donate a gallon of paint, stating that he gave his services free
which he thought was sufficient.
Aid. Bate moved that tenders
be called for the painting of the
fronts of the City buildings. The
Mayor suggested doing it well
and paint the whole of the buildings. Aid. Bate said he was
afraid to ask for the painting of
the whole building, fearing the
proposition would be turned
down. The Council decided to
call for tenders for painting of
the Fire Hall, City Hall, Council Chambers and Magistrate's
office with a good coat of paint.
Aid. McDonald moved that the
Council call for tenders for the
gradingof Windermere and Mary-
port avenues to Fifth street.
Carried. This work is to be carried into effect at once.
Aid. Bate wanted to know why
the City limits was not extended.
The Mayor said it was necessary
to put the extension before th"
people and it was too late to go
the House with a Government
measure. Aid. Rate, for the information of the Council stated
that he had secured legal advice
concerning the new Lighting system and it was not necessary to
go to the people before changing
from flat rate to meter.
Aid. McDonald, "It's nice to
know that amJ would otherwise
have cost the city five  dollars."
Aid. McDonald reported that
the government would loan the
auto truck for a few daya to
grade Fourth street to the main
Comox road, completing the nt w
main road to Dunsmuir avenue,
that was poorly finished during
the year 1915. Aid. Bale moved
that the Board of Works be instructed lo pioceed with the work
Carried.
The City Clerk requested information as to the rate of taxation for the year 1916. It was decided to apply the same rate as
that of 1915. Aid. Bate was not
in favorof heavy taxation. Aid,
McDonald favored low taxation.
When     the   people    could    pay
up arrest? the city would be able
to reduce taxation. A lengthy
discussion thm took place on delinquent taxes with a possibility
of a tax sale by law that will affect some particular cases who
are threeor four years in arrears.
That New Auto I
you intend buying will have to
possess certain qualities you insist
on. Thc engine must be utterly
reliable, efficient in every detail and
instantly responsive. Other fe itures
such as bearings, upholstery, and
design, must also measure up to
your ideal. In short, you want a

priced, and easy to run:---thal s the

That Tired Feeling.
Hid Cod make you and us on
purpose to superintend His universe, antl everybody's affairs
and assume the control of the
"free will" he gave men? Is
this the purpose and plan of our
existence and destiny to be for
ever meddling with somebody's
business? It gives us "that tired
feeling" to think of the pains
some people take to gather the
smallest item of "news." They
leave their own garden to grow
full of weeds while they are trying to hold up before everybody
the few they pull from their
neighbor's. They do everything
but mind their own business.
They never speak of their own
faults or follies. No, indeed; by
the time the whole town is criticised and judgment pronounced
they have not a moment left to do
more tban congratulate themselves on their good works.
Why Some Towns Grow.
The reason why some towns
grow is because there are men of
push and energy in them who
are not afraid to spend their
time and money to boom their
town. They erect good buildings,
organize stock companies and
establish factories, secure railroads, work for public improve'
ments and use every means in
their power to induce people to
locate in their city. Wherever
they go they tell of the advantages of their city, they write
about them in every letter, they
send circulars and newspapers to
all whom they think they can get
to visit the city, and when anyone visits them treats him so
kindly that he falls in love with
them and their city at once. It is
enterprise and everyone pulling
together that makes a progressive town and don't let the fact
escape your memory.
To bear every person saying
son ething pleasant about its people and its interests is the surest, quickest and easiest way to
make a town attractive to a
stranger. One of the best ways
in which to make a town attractive with that sort of attraction
thai will draw other people to it
i- for every man and every woman to have a pleasant word for
1 e people and the town gener-
it |y, Talk up your town if you
would have it ilo well. Talk up
your town if you would have others come to you. Talk up your
town if you would feel an interest ie it and have its people feel
an interest in you. There is no
better way to do it. And many
;i time nne little word of unpleasant reference to something that
dm s not exactly suit you and
not particularly concern you as
t1) that matter, will turn a good
man's influence away from your
town and may even drive him
away. Al your own fireside,
talk up your town. Among your
neighbors talk up your town.
When you come in contact with
strangers, talk up the most potent agency ever set in motion
for helping your town.

CANADA'S CALL
FOR SERVICE AT HOME
Produce More and Save More
The Empire needs food. If you are not in the fighting line you may be in the producing line. Labour
is limited—all the more reason to do more than ever
before. Grow food for the men who are fighting for you. The Allies need all the food that
you can produce. Every little helps. You are responsible for your own work. If you
cannot produce as much as you would like, produce all you can. Work with the right
spirit, Put fifihting energy into your effort and produce now when it counts. The more
you produce the more you can save.   Producing and saving are war-service.
Make Your Labour Efficient
In war-time do not waste time and energy on unimportant and unprofitable work. Economize labour.
Put off unproductive work till after the war, and, if
possible, help in producing something needed now. Let us not waste labour. Canada
needs it all. If possible help to feed the Allies. Make your backyard a productive garden.
Cultivate it with a will.    Make your labour count for as much as possible.
Do Not Waste Materials
There should be no waste in war-time. Canada could
pay the annual interest on her war expenditure out
of what we waste on our farms, in our factories, in
our homes. Every pound of food saved from waste is as good as a pound of increased
production. The way for a nation to save is for every individual to save. France is strong
to-day because of thrift in time of peace. The men and women of Great Britain are not
on'.y " doing " but are learning to " do without."
Spend Kour Money Wisely
finance the war.
better investment.
Practise economy in the home by eliminating luxuries.   Wasting our dollars here weakens our strength
at the Front.     Your savings  will help Canada to
Save your money for the next Dominion War issue.   There can be no

WELLINGTON COLLIERY RAILWAY COMPANY
HIS "FALORIEND"
Time Proved Him to Be All Good,
but Very Easily Influenced.
By GEO. ELMtR COBB.
"I will never trust a friend again!"
It was a broad and bitter declaration
for a man, young, ambitious, iu love
with life and all its pleasant promises
and rewards to come; yet at that supreme moment of disappointment and
loss, Lar.e Perclval meant every word
he  spoke.
He stood in the room whero he and
Duke Wrnou had spent many a hopeful, happy hour during the past year.
They had been like brothers. Euch
had come to the city from a country
homo to curve a way to fortune. To
one of them, l.aiiu Percival, had come
as well the glory of youth—love, deep,
tranquil, abiding. Even in that the
faithful Vernon seemed to share his
Joy and take Myra Little to hia heart's
thoughts as a cherished sister.
And now—this! An opened disordered drawer in the bureau, an overturned tin box with its strong lock
broken—and empty. Two days before
It had contained $H)0, the savings of
two years. Perolval had got leave of
absence for a day to escort Myra to a
town forty miles away, where she
was to spend a week with au old
schuol friend, and he had returned to
find  Duke Vernon  faithless.
"He has taken it all." muttered Perclval, dark browed, and his heart for
the moment was filled with cruel hate,
"I couldn't have believed It of him.
He knew that I drew the money out of
the bank yesterday to pay on the little
home Myra and I had decided to purchase. I suppose he has also drawn
his own funds from the bank. He
has sold his friendship, his honor, his
future for a paltry four hundred dollars."
On the sill of the open window was
an overturned ink bottle, and Percival
concluded that the false friend had
been writing there a check to draw
his own savings and disappear with
everything in sight.   That night he
And Now—ThJsI
wrote all the truth to Myra, with a
heavy heart telling her that he must
begin all over again, and they must—'
wait.
Two days went by but no word was
received that explained the sudden
departure of Dale Vernon. Percival
went around to the mercantile house
for which Vernon had worked. Its
head was disturbed, almost anxious at
the summary disappearance of a valued employe.
Percival did not have the heart nor
will to expose his friend. He simply
left the Impression that Vernon must
have had a sudden call home.
"I guess it la my fate to meet with
disappointment In my friends," ho
wrote Myra. "You remember what I
have told you ubout my brother, Rupert. 1 could never restrain him In
his wild speculative ways, und 1 have
b til J the mournful memory ot' bin inducing me to Invest my share of the
little money father left' us lie lost
It Ail lu some worthless oil well. Thin
makes two bad Inroads on my money
hopes, as you see Next time I shall
make you uiy hanker, ond Hhut out
from mv life every bit of human lovu
except   fdi' yen "
"A telegram, sir," announced a men-
bpi:kit boy just as Percival was seal
ing up this letter.
in wonder Lane Percival   read   a
brief diBpStch. It was dated at a point
In Michigan and It wus-Jsigued I>uke
Vernon.    I'   ran:
"Better than 1 left you word. We
have made It."
What word—made what? In bewilderment Lane Percival sought
vainly to read the riddle. A score oT
wild theories as to what might b°
crossed his thohghts all thai night.
Had he made a mistake? Had he misjudged his tried and trusted friend, or
was this Home effrontery on tlie part
of hts missing chum?
He slept a little towards morning
He aroso dull and oppressed ami
bothered. There was a knock at the
door •
"Come in," he directed.
"U'b me," announced the man who
cleaned the halls and washed the windows and kept the place generally in
order. "T. found a letter, and a check
I guess It is, in the court just now.
I'm not much of a scholar but I spelled out your name."
"My name?" repeated i'- r< Ival
vaguely.
"There  they  are,*   and    th • n
handed Percival a sheet ol        r and
a check.
The latter wa m . oul fi r MOO
and signed hy the ralsaii
The letter bore the Initi: 1 • ol the
same signature, aud ran:
"I>ear Lane.
".* have n hurry call for rui r ■' ■
cash.   Urgent   A big I  ..
taken your money  and you
check.   Expect greal  news.
Slowly the truth h. gun to da1 ;. on
tho startled Percival    Hi  a .
misjudged Vernon, for tin ■
check, which with the letter had bi   u
left on the window sill and had 1   * i
blown into the court   And thai
gram?   Whal could have Induced the
iteady-going Vernon  to plunge    Into
some venture of speculation?
There was another summons at the
door of his humble room tho i i evening. Some one trii d he I), 1.1 e
Percival sprang to Ma feet with a loudly beating heart. He had recogui 1
a familiar footstep he had bi sin to
miss sorely.
He flung the door open widely. Then
he drew back. The open happy fare,
the bluff hearty lone of hia i I I, returned, were a repronch thai i te
him shrink from the extended hand.
"I can't do it, Duke," ho i aid. "I
have wronged you."
"Wronged me?" rang out the eh ery
tones of Vernon.    "Winn?    How?"
"I believed you had stuli n my money."
"I'd have done it if there hr.d been
no other.way!" cried Duke Verucu.
"I've made it. No more Bcrajdng . 1
saving aud creeping along. Loott
there!"
He drew forth and flaunted before
the eyes of hid bewilder, d friend a certified check.
"Ten thousand dollar.;!" were the
words that dazzled the eyes of the
astonished Percival.
"See who it's made out to."
"Duke Vernon and Rupert IVrciv. .;
my brother!"
"Yes—the ne'er-do-well, the wild
rover, the poor fellow you lost faltl
in. But I had faith. He waa all 8
only impulsive and easily Influenced.
He lost your money and bis In an out
and out swindle. Hut that wai education. I didn't tell you, but for a ves
I have been staking him, olT and on,
up in the copper mining district—as a
partner."
Lane Percival swallowed a bitter
emotion tinged with shame. A stranger had been kinder to his wandering
brother than himself.
"You wouldn't see him a year ago
when he called here." said Vernon.
"He'B mado good—won't you see him
now?"
"Yes," said Lane Perilval humbly,
"and ask you both to forgive a man
who needs to begin the study of human nature all over again, to mako
himself worthy of being called friend
and brother."
And Vernon weut out. and brought
the wanderer back with him. It did
not take long, even afler his abject
confessions, for Duke aud Rupert to
cheer up their repentant companion.
And they spent that evening in planning what a lot the $K',niH), received
for a claim that tho ?1UU had como
just In timo to secure, would do for
three young, ambitious fellows and the
bonny girl who need not now wait
longer for Lane's start in life.
