ISLANDER
TWENTY-NINTH YEAK—No. 51.
CUMBERLAND, BRITISH COLUMBIA, SATURDAY, DECEJIBUR IS, 1920.
SUBSCRIPTION PRICE: TWO DOLLARS PER ANNUM.
Government Urged To Complete
Puntledge-Headquarters Road
Many Matters of Importance Dealt With at the Convention of the
Boards of Trade of Vancouver Island Held at Duncan—Want
Primary Highway Through Cumberland to Headquarters and
Merville—G. W. Clinton Elected Vice-President.
Mr. O. W. Clinton, president of the
Cumberland Board ot Trade, was the
only delegate able to make the trip to
the convention of the Associated
Boards of Trade of Vancouver Island
which was held at Duncan on Wednesday last. Mr. Clinton reports the meeting as very enthusiastic and considerable business being transacted, those
of most Importance to this district
dealing with the question ot comple-
tion of the Headquarters road, a better
freight service for Cumberland and the
paralyzing effect of the 40 per cent increase in freight rates, particularly as
lt affects the lumber industry of Vancouver Island.
Mr. Clinton made strong representations to the meeting on the urgent
need of the government completing the
road leading from Bevan to Headquarters, pointing out that only four and
a half miles of new road was needed
to complete this. Along this line he
strongly advocated the classification
of the road from Royston to Cumberland and from Cumberland to Bevan,
Puntledge, Headquarters and Mervllle
as a "primary" highway, thus giving
a first-class road through all these
districts and connecting with the Island Highway at Mervllle and on to
Campbell River. Considering the
small amount of construction work to
be done, the cost of this greatly needed Improvement would not be great,
and a tremendous amount of benefit
would accrue to the district.
Mr. Clinton's representations in this
matter were fully endorsed by the
meeting, and the master will be taken
up with the government with a view
to an early completion of this long-
promised road.
Long Delay In Freight Reaching City.
Mr. Clinton also brought before the
convention the matter of the delay in
freight reaching Cumberland. He said
that freight leaving Victoria Tuesday
arrived in Royston Thursday, but was
held up-there on account of there being no agent at that point, and was
finally sent on to Courtenay. There
the freight waB held up pending the
arrival of way bills, and a solid week's
delay usually resulted before the shipments reached their destination.
It was decided to have the matter
brought before the E. & N. Railway
by a special committee at once.
Unbearable Freight Kotes.
Claiming that the recent Increase of
railway freight rates, amounting to
approximately forty per cent, haB
paralyzed the lumber Industry of Vancouver Island, and has had a serious
effect on trade generally, resulting ln
widespread unemployment and heavy
financial losses by business concerns,
the Associated Boards decided to lodge
a strong protest with Premier Meighen,
the Premiers of all the Provinces, the

The matter was brought up by Mr.
Hicks-Beach, of Courtenay. Ho said
that the sawmill business throughout
the Province had been adversely affected. Since November 2, he said, two of
thc largest mills in the Province, the
Columbia River Co. and tlie CauadiaiT
Western Lumber Co., had shipped only
sixteen carloads—less thau a single
day's cut for either mill.
Mr. O. F. Walton, ot Sidney, one of
the leading lumber operators of the
Island, said the rates were paralyzing

of lumber monthly, the average was
now one carload.

know that the Rev. W. Leversedge,
who has been ln temporary charge of
Holy Trinity Church during the past
seven months, since the Rev. F. Comley

Very strong inducements were presented to Mr. Leversedge to return to
Auyox to take up the community work
which he so successfully inaugurated

of Montreal has announced that after
December 31, 1920, the subscription
price of tbat great weekly will be $2
per year in Canada, Kngland, Ireland
or Scotland, and $2.50 to the United

the cost of while paper makes the
slight advance necessary, in fact It is
only a small portion of the increased
cost over pre-war prices of production. All renewals and subscriptions,
the publishers say, mailed before December 31, 1920, will be accepted at
the old rate of $1.50. Even at Ihe advanced price of $2 a year Tbe Family
Herald Is regarded as the best value
on the continent. It is acknowledged
to be absolutely without a rival, hence
its enormous circulation.

leader of the Conservative parly In
[I3ritis.li Columbia and a former premier,
will not accept the office of Lieut.-
Governor in succession to the lat*1
Hon. BJ, CJ. Prior, it is Btated by men
who are Oil the inside of Federal affairs and close to Mr. Bowser.
For the last couple of days Mr.
Bowser's name has been prominently
mentioned iu gossip over gubernatorial possibilities. Those who aro close
to Ottawa declare that Mr, Bowser
could have the oillce if he desired it.
Mr. Bowser was Interviewed by a
special political representative aud
asked to give his consent to his name
being sent to Ottawa. He. however, refused flatly, saying that he had no de
sire for the ollice. Unofficial representations have been made but lie has
frowned on tbem all.
Will Uetlre After .Next Session.
It is said that Mr. Bowser lids decided to retire from the leadership of
the Conservative party after the next
session of the Legislature during which
time it is hoped some new chieftain
may be brought to light. His friends
are urging him to take the governorship as a culmination of bis long service in public life, and because of his
other qualifications for the ofiice. They
say that Mr. Bowser would 1111 the
office capably, because although he
fights hard, he never carries a grudge
or bears his opponents ill-will. Mr.
Bowser has declared that he intends to
retire to private life. Indications are
that Ottawa is anxious to appoint the
new lieutenaht-governor without delay us public business is being held up.

puper publisher.

OUTLINE OF SOCIOLOGY
Splendid Paper Read by Colin
Campbell at Men's Club.
On Monday night the work of Holy
Trinity Men's Club began in earnest
when Mr. Colin Campbell introduced
thu subject of Sociology by reading a
very carefully-prepared paper on the
outline and objects of that science.
ln beginning, the speaker outlined
the position of Sociology among tho
sciences, showing that while it is the
lea.st exact it is by far the broadest and
affects human life most, intensely. It
is only recently that llie scientific
method has been applied to the subject. Insisting on verified experlenci
und discarding all beliefs and cuatomi
that will uot stand the test of truth,
said the speaker.
The rise and development of social
factors wos carefully explained, emphasis being laid on ihe rise of tin'
family, the use of domestic animals.
aud the chnngo from pastoral lite to
agriculture. The ascendancy of
Greece and Koine was made possible
because slavery afforded the wealth
and lei mre necessary to the growth
of culture, Slavery is Uie lirsi form of
exploitation Of man by mau. Passing,
through llie feudal to the modern
period the growth of capitalism was
then dealt with and the relation ol
Economics to Sociology carefully
pointed out.
While Mr. Campbell did not advocate
any panacea for Ihe ills of society he
made char that, he considered thut the
only sound approach to the problem,
through which progress may be made
toward a solution, lay through education, enlightenment nnd tlie application of scientilic- principles.
The whole paper and the replies.te
the numerous questions which followed it revealed a breadth of know-
ladge und balance of Judgment, not
only of sociology, hut on many related
subjects. It is hoped that Mr. Campbell's paper will be followed by others
on particular phases of the Subject.

Dont's For Christmas
Don't give an invalid a volume entitled "Tliouglits of Death," or "Preparing tor the Hereafter." Prepare
the invalid for the "right now" with a
lot of laughs and a lot of hope by giving him or her some jolly books of plot
nnd fun and travel, and add some interesting puzzles to keep the mind
occupied.
Don't give Bobbie a drum and then
scold him for beating it. Did you
think ho was going to use it for a
collar-box or a writing-desk.
Don't buy three or four dollars'
worth of foolish tinsel and glass decorations for the tree. Think of the added
Raines and candy aud little tops you
could have got for that money, Make
the tree decorations at home and prove
both your economy and originality,
Don't give your poor little friend a
"pair of sensible shoes." Shoes are
not a sensible present for a youngster,
no matter liow poor he is. He wants
skats or a sled. The very best present
you cau give him is something to make
him happy. That's the spirit of
(.'li ristmas.
Don't ornament the tree with lighted
candles. Frequently the firemen call
and squirt water all ovor the presents
as a result of this, which never fails to
dampen tlie Christmas festivities.
Don't look a Christmas gift in the
price-tag.
Don't give baby a whole bag of candy
together with cheap toys from which
lie may chew the paint. Remember it
is Christmas and the family doctor
would like a few minutes to himself
during the day.
Don't sit down and take charge of
Willie's toy train and Susie's toy
piano. As long as they are for the
children, why not allow them to play
with them?
SIR JOHN EATON SAYS
OWNERSHIP UNCHANGED
"Not Enough Money in Whole
World to Buy My Father's
Name," He Says.
TORONTO.—At a dinner tendered to
thc directors of the T. Eaton Co., by
tlie managers, Sir John C. Eaton, in response to the toast of the president,
congratulated the managers on their
splendid co-operation throughout the
year. Sir John stated that a rumor
had been frequently brought to his
notice to the effect that tbe company
had changed ownership. Sir John's
reply was characteristic: "There's not
onough money in the whole world to
buy my father's name." This was received with cheers and tremendous applause. Sir John expressed his conviction that all could look forward with
confidence to 1921. After short addresses interspersed with glees and
songs, the diners adjourned to the
company's managers' club-room in the
King Edward Hotel. Here was unveiled a portrait of Timothy Eaton,
painted by E. Wyley Grier, R.C.A., and
presented to Sir John by the managers
of departments, store, mall order and
factories.
WHO WAS THE AUTH0R1
When Vice-President Marshall was
a struggling lawyer in Indiana, says
Cappers' Weekly, a book agent entered his oince one morning and undertook to sell him a new edition of
tlie 13ible. "Marshall Interrupted to
ask who the author was.
"W-li-y, this is tlie Bible," explained
the agent.
"I um fully aware of that," answered
Marshall. "But 1 ask you who is the
author?"
The agent again explained he was
offering tlie Bible.
"I know," said .Marshall, "but who
is the author?"
Gathering up his samples, the book
:igent retreated to tlio door, then with
ono hand on tiie knob, turned around
md shouted, "You pin-headed fool
nnd blithering idiot, It's the Bible!"

TREATMENT OF SICK AND
WOUNDED DURING THE WAR
Paper rend by Mr. T. W. Scott at the
.Meeting of the Canadian Collieries St.
John's First Aid and  Mine Kescue
Association, December 5, 1930.
(Cintlnued from last week)
On arrival at the base the train is
run Into a siding, where lt is met by a
convoy of motor ambulances. There
were several bases, but for the purpose
of this paper we will consider Boulogne, which was the largest base and
ln the vicinity of which there were
many large general and stationary hospitals. The tralnload of patients ls
then dispersed ln motor ambulances
to various hospitals according to the
number of beds vacant, and also according to the nature of the wounds.
Patients are received at the base hospital In a similar manner to that at
the C.C.S.; they are examined by a
medical officer and detailed to their
respective wards, according to their
labels, which contain a short history
of their case specially notifying injections, morphia, anti-tetanus, serum,
etc., which have been giving before
leaving the CCS. Every patient has
all his clothing taken from him, and ts
permitted the luxury of a bath. Those
who are unable to help themselves
are bathed ln bed and the "walking
cases" attend to their own ablutions,
after which they are given an outfit
of hospital blues and returned to the
wards.
When the M.O. makes his round he
marks those patients to be sent to
England. If a big rush Is on all patients who are fit for moving are sent
• to England, and those unfit are kept
until tbey are, but the base hospitals
must be kept as clear as possible ln
order to be able to receive the con
voys Incessantly coming down the line.
It was always endeavored to keep a
certain number of empty beds ln all
hospitals in France in case of emergency; very often during big stunts
they got very overcrowded, patients
having to be on stretchers between
beds; this fortunately only lasted for
a matter of days, then usually there
would be time to get fairly clear before another big stunt.
When a patient is marked fit for
duty he is sent to a base detail camp,
where men from every regiment in the
British Army seemed to be collected
prior to being sent to their unit's base
depot and eventual return to the firing
line. At this camp the routine of army
life begins again, polishing buttons
and parades. The entire camp paraded
every morning and parties were detailed under N.C.O.'s to unload and
load ammunition, etc., at the wharves.
A man's sojourn here, however, did
not last more than two or three days,
when he was packed ln a box car
(rather different to a Red Cross train)
with 39 others and sent to his unit's
base for probably two or three weeks'
drilling and training—one continual
round of pleasure—before being completely re-equipped with a kit, rifle and
ammunition and sent "up the line,"
where he may be less than one day before he ls again wounded and again
have to go through the same trip to
the base.
Those cases which were marked for
"Blighty" (and they did shake hands
with themselves and and crow over
their less forutnate comrades) were
given labels, marked with the name of
the hospital ship on which they were
to cross the Channel. The "walking
cases" were sent to the hospital Q.M.
stores  and  equipped with  an  outfit
which had recently been put through
a disinfector. These clothes did not
always fit, but that did not dampen
Tommy's ardor—he was bound for
"Blighty." Stretcher cases were given
a suit of pyjamas, woolen coat and
Balaclava cap, rolled in blankets and
put on a stretcher. When'the hospital
ship was ready to receive, convoys of
motor ambulances conveyed the patients from the hospital to the wharf;
orderlies carried the stretcher cases
on board where tbey were placed on
elevators and lowered to the various
decks that were fitted up with the
necessary racks for receiving tbem,
"Walking cases" made themselves
comfortable on chairs provided on the
upper decks, and were all equipped
with life belts. On bourd ship tlie
Banie temporary treatment was given
by tlio medical staff as was given on
the ambulance train. On arrival at
Dover, Folkestone or wherever It
might be, the ship was unloaded Immediately, men were given an opportunity to send telegrams to their
friends, walking slicks were handed
to those who were limping along without crutches, and eventually everyone
found himself comfortably llxed up on
the ambulance train bound for somewhere unknown, but In England. On
arrival at Its destination the train is
met by a convoy of motor ambulances
and tbe patients soon find themselves
again ln a large hospital where tliey
are received and detailed to tiie various wards. Those who are (It are sent
down to tlie both rooms, where they
have a bat hand are given a white
shirt, blue pants and coat and a red
tie, boots, slippers and socks, and sent
back to ward and to bed. Patients who
are unable to take cure of themselves
aro put to bed and bathed. After
everyone ls fixed up comfortably in
bed, the sister in charge of the ward
takes each patient's temperature,
pulse, etc., including the family history.     Dressings   are   then   removed
ready  for the JI.O.'s examination  of
the wounds.
The daily routine in the various hospitals is very similar. Patients are
awakened about 5.30; those who are!
ab!,, to get up wasli themselves and
assist tlie nursing stall' on niglit duty
to attend to the bed patients, and make
beds before the' day nursing staff
conies on duty. After breakfast tlie
wards are dusted and fixed up before
the M.O. makes his round, when dressings arc changed, temperature, etc.,
taken. In some cases dressings have
to be changed more than once during
the "■! hours, but it is not necessary to
tin into uny further details. After
dinner patients who are fit are allowed
to go out for a tew hours; those who
are not have to remain in and entertain the visitors who come, doubtless
with the Intention of entertaining them.
Every day patients are becoming
mors' lit under their treatment, bullets
and shrapnel huve been removed ami
the wounds healed, so that Ihey are
ready to go lo some convalescent hospital. Others are not so fortunate who
have received wounds and been crippled to such nn extent thai they are of
no further use for military service.
They art.1 marked for a medical hoard
Consisting Of several medical oflieers,
wlio examine them most thoroughly
and mark some for discharge from the
army as soon as everything possible
has been done for them, while others
may be marked for duties In England
or at some base in France,
At sonic convalescent hospitals
patients hail nothing to do but enjoy
themselves. At others tliey wont
through a certain amount of physical
training to fit (hem for coming events
that were casting their shadows before, In the shape of parades and
fatigues at the reserve depots, where
they eventually arrived after a short
"leave" to be fitted out for a return to
tlie firing lino when reinforcements
were called for.

THE CUMBERLAND ISLANDER
Published every Saturday morning at Cumberland, B. C.
EDWARD W. BICKLE Manager and Publisher.
BEN H. GOWEN Editor.
SATURDAY, DECEMBER IS, 1920.
CUMBERLAND-HEADQUARTERS HIGHWAY
At tho suggestion of the Cumberland Board of Trade, as
ably presented by Mr. G. W. Clinton, the delegate from this
city attending the Associated Boards of Trade meeting held
nt Duncan on Wednesday last, the convention heartily
endorsed the proposal to impress upun the government the
urgent necessity of completing the few miles of unfinished
road between Puntledge und Headquarters, and of making
the road from Royston to Cumberland a primary highway.
The proposal is to continue tills highway on to Bevan via
tlu' Canadian Collieries Road to No. 5, and linking up with
tbe new Puntledge-Headquarters road. The scheme would
give a first-class road from Royston, through Cumberland,
Bevan, Puntledge, Headquarters and joining the island
Highway again at Mervllle.
This rond would divert a large percentage, probably the
majority, of tourist and other tralllc to Campbell River
via Cumlierland. The benefit to tlie eity and district would
be enormous under this needed Improvement, which would
only be the fulfilment by the government of promises made
long since. It Is to be hoped tho Oliver administration will
look favorably on tlie convention's recommendations and
hasten tho completion of this highway. Under the .Motor
Tralllc Act the provincial government will have a very large
revenue next year derived from motor licences to devote
to road work.
one hears against the old parties, the men of the new
parties and of no party fared badly in this contest. Of
sixty candidates who ran as representatives of various new
parties and "isms," less than half a dozen have been
elected and must of the others were overwhelmingly rejected. This is particularly notable In the cities. Thus, in
Vancouver alone there were no fewer than seventeen candidates of tlie kind that a newspaper like the Ottawa would
have supported, cranks and faddists who ranged all the
way from Socialists to nominees of the "Ratepayers' Association," and of the entire number only one—a Socialist—
weathered tlie storm.
Tlie moral Is fairly clear. It is that, despite all the
clamor and noise ubout a rising storm against the old
parties, the old parties are still very much alivo, still the
dominant factor in our politics, whether national or provincial. Here and there, as In Manitoba, there may be an
occasional falling away into the mist and uncertainty of
groups, but In the main the people appear to realize that
party government Is best adapted to our form of government, and must survive, It Is not that tlie country is favorable to extreme partisanship, lt is simply that it Is suspicious of an unthinking radicalism without fixed principles nnd leading toward chuotic groups, preferring the
stubillly of the old parties, notwithstanding their errors
and sins.--Ottawa Journal.
As an outcome of the representations made to tiie convention, the disadvantage which Cumberland has had regarding
shipments of freight from Victoria via the B. & N. Railway,
will probably be eliminated and arrangements made
whereby the freight will be shipped direct to Cumberland
instead of going to Courtenay and -being re-shipped here
some days later, tp tlie detriment of local merchants and
loss of perishable goods in transit.
We are pleased to report that Capt. Richardson, District
Engineer, replying to the request of the Cumberland Board
of Trade, for work to proceed on tlio Trent Road, has
notified the chamber that work will be proceeded with in
the near future.
OTTAWA'S VIEW
While the Conservatives have considerably Improved
their strength, the Oliver Government in British Columbia
emerges from the elections with a majority quite adequate
to carry on with safety. The issues upon which the campaign were fought were wholly local In character, and
none was even of mucli magnitude provincially, since the
only explanation of the result is that the electorate could
see no reason for replacing the Oliver Government with
the programme and leaders which Mr. Bowser offered.
One feature of the election alone has federal significance,
and it is worthy of note.   It is that, despite all the outcry
A  VICIOUS CIRCLE
About tbo worst thing that could happen to Canada
wouhl lie a decision on tlie part of everybody to refrain
from buying anything but the barest necessities, waiting
for prices to drop. There Is a tendency just now to adopt
that course and the effect upon trade and industry Is
already beginning to lie felt. We heard much about the
'vicious circle" when wages and prices were climbing during tlie war and immediately after. Another kind of
"vicious circle" may prove even more distressful now. If
there is a general disposition to stop buying there will
soon be a general inability on the part of the manufacturers
to keep their plants operating. The temporary cessation
of buying on tlie part of the public is the reason given by
one big concern for tlie discharge of 2,000 men recently.
This instance is a duplication of hundreds of others that
are taking place across the line, and to some extent in
Canada, and in many industrial centres thousands of mon
are facing the winter witli no employment in sight, lt is
natural for people who believe.that prices are due to
slump to refrain from making purchases at the present
time, but this tendency can be overdone, with disastrous
results to tlie country at large.
Oh! let us not wait to be just or pitiful or demonstrative
toward those we love until they or we are struck down by
illness, or threatened with death. Life is short, and we
have never too muoh time for gladdening the hearts of
those who are travelling the dark journey with us. Oh!
be swift to love, make haste to be kind.—H. P. Amlel.
Those who are gone you have. Those who departed
loving you, love you still; and you love them always. They
are not really gone—those dear hearts and true—they are
only gone into the next room— and you will presently get
up and follow them, and yonder door will be closed upon
you, and you will be no more seen.—Thackeray.

In a handful of snow there might be
twenty thousand crystals, and not two
of them would be alike.
Sleet is snow which, In its passage
to the earth, has passed through u layer of warmer air, and become partially melted.
Snow is early or late according to
whether the summer was short, and
soon over or extended to the autumn.
A short, early summer means that the
earth cools more quickly.
Ground which is covered with snow
very rarely falls below freezing
point, although the air may be fifteen
to twenty degrees colder. This Is because snow is a very bad conductor of
heat—it holds the heat in the ground
and stops its radiation.
The reference In the Psalms: "He
glveth snow like wool," Is not to the
fact that snow and wool are alike in
appearance, but to the warmth of each.
Snow is warm because air is held in
its minute Interstices. No heat escapes
from anything covered with snow.
Snow is a valuable manure, and nourishes the earth with its carbonic acid,
Which penetrates slowly into the soil,
and is thus fully absorbed.
Flnallys snow is ruinous to shoo
leather, because It warms the leather,
opens it and then penetrates.
To wind up nn essay on babies an
eleven-year-old hoy at the Preston
Council School wrote:
"When a baby goes out it has to be
well wrapped up, or It will catch cold
and die, and then you have to go to all
the trouble of getting a new one."
Johnny liked Ice crenm, hut he drew
the line at turning tlle freezer. Oi
day when his motlior returned home
she was greatly surprised to find him
working away at the crank as though
his life depended on It.
"1 don't seo how you get hlm to
turn the freezer," she said to her husband, "I offered him a dime to do it.
"You didn't go at the right way,
my dear," replied the husband. "I bet
him a nickel he couldn't turn it for
half a nhour."
"I should hnte to marry a naval
ollicer, as you did," said Maud. "They
say a sailor has a wife In every port."
"Ah, my dear," purred Kitty, "you
have no Idea what balm that reflection often brings to one's conscience."
He was decidedly perplexed about a
Christmas present, until his mother,
dear soul, reminded him that a box
of Frost's Chocolates would be sure to
please dearie.

SUPPORT VIEWS
OF B. C. TEACHERS
Reconstruction along educational
lines is engaging the attention of tlle
British Columbia Teachers' Federation. One evidence of this came to thc
public notice in tlie recent provincial
political campaign, when the Teachers'
Federation sent to each of the 155 candidates a questlonaire for the purpose
of learning his attitude toward six live
educational subjects. Here are the
tlio questions us submitted:
1—Are you in favor of extending
high school or secondary education to
include technical, industrial and vocational education, so that boys and
girls, who do not contemplate taking
up one of the professions, may have
Ibe same educational opportunities to
prepare them for their future careers,
lo lliosc who take tlie professions now
have?
2—Are you lu favor of such a readjustment taxation as will enable all
cities, municipalities and rural districts to provide equal educational opportunities?
:i—Are you iu favor of rising the
standard of efficiency of the teaching
profession by a longer period of normal school training for teachers?
■1—Arc you in favor of raising the
age of compulsory school attendance?
5—Are you in favor of changing, to
some extent, tlie curriculum for rural
schools, so that the children ot such
schools may receive an education
which will lit them for tlieir present
surroundings and will tend towards
tlieir taking up rural life in later
years, and not, as at present, tend to
direct them to the cities?
6—Are you in favor of a superannuation scheme for teachers?
lu all forty-seven replies were received from candidates and, on the
whole, these were In the affirmative.
Many suggestions were offered as well,
and many who did not send In replies
are known to favor the suggestions
contained in the six questions asked.

The hearing hy a wireless operator
iu Scotland of selections played by a

low-powered telephone. The distance
was approximately 3,500 miles.
Nows of the successful experiment
came in a letter received by Hugh
Robinson, of Report, who, witli his
sixteen-year-old son, has been conducting experiments In wireless telephony for some time. The letter from
Scotland reads:

"Dear Jlr. Robinson: I write to say

Consents to share your fate,

Some suitor gets thc gate.

To gain Ihe mountain's crown,
Uut while you're going higher
Somebody's going down.
You clcnn up on tlie races
Nor notice the despnlr
Depicted on the faces

To think It's all a gamble
And some one has to lose.

You do not give a rap
That some ono is repining—

Somebody must get his.

craft special picture, which comes to

the case of Marlon Hume, wbo married
Lord Angus Cameron aboard his yacht
by the Scotch ceremony of declaration
before two witnesses.
Donald Cameron, heir to a Scotch
title, would marry a woman of the

housekeeper at the castle ls an Impediment. He repudiates his wife and
child, depending upon the peculiar circumstances of the marriage to make
Impossible auy proof of a legal ceremony.
Years before, during a trip on his
brother's yacht, the White Heather,
he had acknowledged Marlon Hume as
his legal wife, before two witnesses,
the skipper and mate, who had signed
a contract of marriage In the yacht's
log. Subsequently the yacht was sunk
near shore.
To prove her claim, save her good
name and secure the rights of her son,
Marion goes to court, but in the absence of proof is defeated. Cameron
decided to make sure of his position by
getting possession of the yacht's log.
Also Alec McCUntock, an admirer of
Marlon's, decides on a like expedition.
Both men don diver's suits and descend
to the wreck intent on recovering the

The Jack Knife Man
An Original Tale of Life on a
Shanty Boat on the Mississippi River—Has Setting
of Unique Charm.
Human Interest, comedy and pathos'
are the predominating features ln the
King Vldor photoplay, "Married Life,"
released through the First National
and booked as the attraction at the
Ilo-Ilo on Monday night.
A shanty-boat on the Mississippi
River forms the chief setting of this
delightful picture and its owner, old
Peter, "the Jack-Knife Man" Is one
of the most unique and lovable characters reproduced on the screen in many
moons. Ellis Parker Butler has furnished a wealth of unique personages
in this story that are novel and interesting and the qualntness of lt all
makes for an appeal that ls, Indeed,
extremely strong. King Vldor has
cast this picture with unusual care and
every member of the talented cast is
fitted to the role with an Intelligence
that insures a finished performance.
Ellis Parker Butler, the author, will
be remembered by a host ot people
through his famous novelette, "Pigs Is
Pigs."
Wallace Reid Proves in His New
Photoplay That Truth is
the Better Policy.
Wallace's Reid's newest picture,
"Alias, Mike Moran," is a story that
proves the folly of deception. If a
man tells a He or deceives, he immediately becomes a slave and remains
enshackled until he confesses uud
clears his conscience.
And the ladies aren't excepted I
In this photoplay, which will be seen
at the llo-llo Theatre on Tuesday
evening next, Larry Young deceives
his sweetheart, bis friends und his
country by sending another man In
bis place when he is drafted lo serve
iu tlie United States Army. Theu lie
has to leave town to make his deception stick. His man goes over lights
and ls killed and dies a hero's deatli.
Then Larry is in a pickle. To the
world, his family and his sweetheart,
he ls a dead mau. How can be face
them now?
But there are times in a man's life
when he turns on the devil within aim
and blots lt from his path aud con
fesses regardless of the outcome. How
Wallace Reid turned the trick in
"Alias, Mike Moran," is admirably
shown. A delightful romance is
woven Into the story and the picture
closes with a finish that will please
the most critical.
Smoldering Embers
America's   Greatest   Character
Actor in a Drama Aflame With
The Love of the Heart.
Much has been written and sung
about the greatness of mother-love,
but seldom do we hear of the strong,
silent and watchful love and care of
a father for his son, though It is one
of those potent forces which, unheralded, unsung, guide the destinies of
human kind.
In Frank Keenan's Pathe release,
"Smouldering Embers," announced us
the attraction at the llo-llo on Wednesday next, father-love ls exemplified
to the highest degree. Frank Keenan
portrays a vagabond who Duds his
only and lost son reared amid wealtii
and refinement. His watchful care
over the boy, his yearning to take hini
in his arms, his self-sacrifice is bound
to touch the heart-strings of those who
te.
The story, written by Kate Cor-
baley, who.wrote Keenan's "Gates of
Brass" and "The False Code," is a
romantic one centreing about the
vaganbond's son aud bis love for thc
cobbler's daughter. Tho plot Is complicated by the boy being urged to
marry a girl he does not love to further
his stepfather's ambitions.
Jack seeks to forget his troubles in
bad company and if the old vagabond
had not been Jack's shadow during
those trying days his romance would
have had a tragic instead of happy
ending.

MADAME X
The Most Expensive Film Ever
Shown in Cumberland.
In "Madame X" Pauline Frederick
gives the greatest performum-p of her
career. This picture lias been culled
greater than the phi), which run fur
years and stands as one of the mosl
sensational successes of the lliculre.
Time, it is said, heals all wounds,
but heart wounds never forgotten
never heal, and the mother's love for
her son, of the sort "that passelh all
understanding," IS NEVER forgotten.
Jacqueline Florlot proves this statement ln "Madame X," a Qoldwyn
masterfllm coming to the llo-llo on
Saturday, Devember 25th, Christmas
Day. Turned from her home by the
unjust suspicions of her husband she
is denied the love of her son and seeks
solace In the underworld of Paris.
Years pass, but like Banquo's ghost,
the love of her son will not down. Aud
In the end she finds him, placed
through a strange trick of fate as
counsel for her defense for a crime
committed to save her husband's career
from ruin.
Pauline Frederick brings to the
screen in the role of "Madame X" u
superb portrayal of this pathetic
figure. You will follow her life with
wet eyes and quivering lips, so near
is it to perfect realism. But it is thc
sort of narrative that will appeal, for
It is built upon the elementul passions
