THE CUMBERLAND ISLANDER
With which Is consolidated the Cumberland .News.
FORTIETH YEAR—No. 10.
CUMBERLAND. BRITISH COLUMBIA, SATURDAY, .MARCH 5, 1921.
SUBSCRIPTION PRICE: TWO DOLLARS PER ANNUM.
Enjoyable Social and Dance
To Victorious First Aid Team
Members of No. 4 Surface Team Presented With Tokens by St.
John's Ambulance Association—Robert Reid Also Received
Medal Donated by Charles Graham, for General Proficiency
In First Year Examination s in First Aid Work.
A big crowd ot merry folk attended
the complimentary social and dance
tendered by the St. John's Ambulance
Association to the members of No. 4
Surface team, winners of second place
ln the Dominion competition for First
Aid to the Injured held recently.
It will be remembered that this
team went to Nanaimo two weejts ago
to attend the presentation of cup and
medals to both Barton's team and the
Cumberland team, which was fully reported ln our last Issue.
The llo-llo hall was well filled Monday evening, dancing taking up most
of the programme. Just before supper Chairman Francescini called the
gathering to order and explained the
purpose ot the social, It being a public
reception to the winning team given
by the St. John's Ambulance Association of Cumberland. He then called
on Mr. George O'Brien to present the
tokens.
Mr. O'Brien reminded those present
that the week previous the team had
attended the big official reception ln
Nanaimo aiTd had been presented with
the medals as winners of second place
ln the Dominion-wide contest, and also
a aet of medals presented by the government of the province.
Last year, for the first time In the
history of the Dominion, said the
speaker, B. C. teams entered the competitions, and these two teams, Barton's ot Nanaimo and No. 4 Surface ot
Cumberland, won the flrst and second
places. This was a very great credit
to Vancouver Island and especially to
Cumberland. Our team is a very young
one, but last year they won the Coulson Cup against strong competition;
lt la now iu Cumberland and we hope
lt will remain here. Following this
success the team had won second place
ln the Dominion contest, but next time
we hope to secure flrst place (loud-
applause).
Every person, said Mr. O'Brien, both
men and women, should take up a
First Aid course. There were many
reasons for doing so, as the lessons
learned were frequently needed both
in the home and in our every-day occupations. He appealed for people to
join the classes in First Aid work.
A very great deal of credit was due
to thc local doctors, Dr. MacNaughton
and Dr. Hicks, for the splendid work
they were doing ln this connection.
Without their aid the team would not
have been so successful ln the contest (applause).
Presents Medal to Hubert Held.
Mr. O'Brien said he had another
little token to present that evening—
a gold medal donated by Mr. Charles
Graham to Mr. Robert Reid for general proficiency. That this met with
general approval was evident from the
hearty applause following the presentation.    '
He then called on Captain Taylor to
bring his team forward, when he pre
sented each of them with handsome
fountain pens, gifts of the association.
Captain Taylor, ln responding, said
that on behalf of No. 4 Surface Team
lt gave him very great pleasure to return thanks for the tokens given them,
and also to the large number present
for their attendance. He hoped the
championship would remain on the Island next year, no matter which team
won It.   (Applause.)
Dr. MacNaughton said It was his
privilege and pleasure to attend the
presentation the previous week, when
Nanaimo had presented tho team with
splendid donations. While the Cumberland team did not succeed In winning first placo, they came very close
to it. It'B only right that work of this
kind should be appreciated. They did
this kind of work to help their fellow
men. Every person, Bald the doctor,
should endeavor to become acquainted
with First Aid. He extended an Invitation to all who could do so to attend
the First Aid classes now being
formed.
Miss Beckwith sang a song in very
pleasing style and was loudly applauded.
The splendid music for the dancing
was supplied by Monte's orchestra.
Mr. Wm. Gillies was floor manager

CLEAN- UP!
Unsanitary Conditions Liable to
Cause Trouble—Ashes Must
Not Be Dumped on Streets
In our advertising columns the Chief
of Police gives notice that all gardens
and back yards must be put In a clean
and sanitary condition, and ashes and
rubbish disposed of.
The bright sun of late has revealed
some rather unpleasant conditions ln
and around the city. Householders
and storekeepers would do well to see
to the matter at once. The back yards
of some of the stores are a disgrace,
which should not be tolerated. The
Board of Health ls on the warpath, so
be prepared!

Mr. W. A. Owen, the Canadian Collieries (Dunsmuir) Lt. Construction
Engineer, has designed a fifteenth century gothic portal with an arch opening 10 feet wide and 11 feet 2 inches
In height to the apex.. Since the country In which the great majority went
west was France, a gothic design
seems particularly appropriate. The
supporting piers will contain recessed
panels in which will be Inset cast
bronze tablets containing a combined
total of 27 names, 12 In one and 15 ln
tbe other. The pediment will also
contain three recessed arched panels,
the centre one containing a shield
with the year of erection upon it. In
the centre, between the piers, will be
a modern sanitary drinking fountain.
Tbe whole construction will be of concrete and will be placed ln front of
the G. W. V. A. Hall.
The total cost will be in the neighborhood of $600. Blue prints showing
the design will be placed ou view In

WEDDING
By reason of their victory last Sunday against the Victoria Wests, and
Nanaimo only making a draw with
the Victoria team, Cumberland United
are ouly one point behind tho leaders.
As the Nanaimo team is due here on
the 13th, It looks like odds on the local
aggregation getting Into flrst place
again.
The game last Sunday between
Cumberland and Victoria Wests did
not produce very fast football. The
Victoria team were again handicapped,
being two or three of their regular
players short, whilst the local team
also suffered owing to sickness and
injury to several players.
Campbell won the toss and elected
to play towards the town-end of the
Held. As usual tho local forwards
went off with a great burst of speed.
but met a stubborn defence. Time
after time they raided the Victoria
goal, but the visitors' left full-buck,
ably assisted by his half-back, was
alwayB able to clear his lines. Afler
a nice bit of combined play on the left,
Hltchens scored No. 1 for Cumberland.
This reverse tended to liven up the
visitors, who made several raids on
Clark's goal, but Jock was right on the
job; one of his saves from the outside
left was little short of miraculous.
Tlie locals then took another turn at
attacking. During the melee ln front
ot goal one of the visiting backs
handled the ball, Referee Brown
promptly awarding a penalty, which
Campbell easily converted, making it
No. 2 for the locals. Half-time arrived
with the score 2-0 ln favor of the
home team.
., The second half was practically a
repetition of tlie first, Cumberland doing everything but score. During one
of the raids on the Cumberland goal,
a corner was forced, which was so
well placed that they had no difficulty
in beating Cla(rk.

The following communication was
received from Mr. G. W. Clinton,
managing-director of the Cumlierland
aud Ullton Water Works Co., Ltd;, re
tlie a.sscssment of ?1 per foot on tlie
water mains, aud the proposal of the
council to put a bylaw to (he voters
for approval of rejection of a rate of
TH cents.:
February 21st, 1921.
Thomas Mordy, Esq.,
City Clerk,
Cumberland, B. C.
Dear Sir,—Please convey to the
Mayor and Aldermen our thanks for
their offer lo reduce the tax levy of
one dollar per running foot to seventy-
five cents, after the cousent of the
ratepayers having heen obtained, our
company to pay all coats in the event
of the bylaw passing.
After careful consideration we must
decline to pay any costs, for the following reasons:
1st. 'lhat all bylaws should be paid
for by the city.
2nd. That passage of bylaw is nol
necessary as present one dollar rate,
and the seventy-five cent rate your
council thinks is a fair rate, can be
settled between the city and the
Water Company, as follows: City bill
the company at one dollar aud the
company charge the city twenty-five
per cent, for lire protection and (lushing sewers, etc., each year.
3rd. We feel that the tax, in proportion to the revenue received from your
city, is excessive nnd should not be
levied on the company, but realizing
lhat every available dollar is needed
for the upkeep of the city and maintenance of the schools, we are willing
to contribute seventy-five per cent, of
the tax rate, as asked for iu tlie bylaw.
4th. The rales charged to consumers
hy the Water Company have never
heen changed since Incorporation of
the company fn 1894, nnd compare favorably wilh tho.se charged to consumers by municipal-owned plants In
cities with over'double the population,
aud not dependent alone on ouo industry as this city is, namely coal and
coal only. «•
5th, For nearly twelve years of the
IC* years of this company, nu dividends
were paid, and tbe present rate Is six
per cent., and It enluils the strides!
economy by (he directors lo pay even
this rate, and it means if taxation
charges increase, tlie directors will he
compelled, though loath to do so, to
raise the rale;; to our patrons.
(ith. Last year, at nn expense of
close tu nine thousand dollars, we
raised the city dam from 100,000 gallons tu 500,000 gallons capacity, solely
for lire protection, as the old dam wns
lurge enough for household requirements, but we felt lhat it was needed,
and the shareholders were content tu
receive three per cent., so your city
was safe, and wc notified (he IJ. C. Klre
Underwriters or our doing so. nnd
have in our possession notice of fire
rates being reduced in the cily, so wc
feel the company has been uf BOtne
benefit to the city.
Thanking you tor courtesies '-Mend
ed, 1 am, yours very truly,

WATER WORKS CO., LTD,,
Per G. w. Clinton,
Managing Director,
It was slated that the cost uf drawing up llie bylaw aud submlUing it to
a   plebiscite   vote  of  the   ratepayers
would   be   about   $125.     The   understanding was lhal the company would
pay the cost if the bylaw carried, and
Ihe council if il was rejected.
In llie absence of Mayor MacDonald,
the communication was laid over until the next meeting.    The concensus
(tf opinion was directly   against   Ihe
proposal outlined in the letter.

EASTERN CANADIAN COAL
Willi the exception of small deposits
of anthracite In Ithode Island, the only
coal deposits 011 the Atlantic seaboard
of this continent are those In the Maritime Provinces of Canada.
Eastern Canadian coal Is bituminous
and ls especially BUltablo for blastfurnace, coke and for generating
steam antl gas.
The greater part of tho Eastern deposits uro lu Nova Scotia, but known
deposits are situated ln New Brunswick. It Is estimated that at tbe
present rate of consumption the supply will last seven hundred years.
Tho first recorded mention of coal
Iu what is now Nova Scotia is found in
early history dealing with the events
of 1(154. The first coal found was
gathered from the surface of deposits
without mining.
In Nova Scotia there aro four coal
fields with thick seams. The most im
portnnt of these is the Sydney Held on
Cape Breton, which supplies about 77
per cent, of all the eoal mined in the
province. The field has an area of 200
square miles.
The average annual production of
coal In Nova Scotia amounts to about
six million tons, ln 1013 lt was 7,980,
tons; in 1019 it wus 5,702,310. It ta
again on the increase.
WHAT IS ETHER?
No mystery that has puzzled sclen
lists iu all ages seems less easy of
solution than that which concerns the
ether of space.
It has long been evident to psychists
that space must he filled with some
thing of a material nature. It cannot
he seen, or felt, or perceived by any
of our senses; but it must exist, else
how could energy be transmitted
through lt.
We get light and heat from the sun.
These are forms of energy, and so
likewise is electricity. Energy must
have a vehicle for Its transmission
We know that waves of light from Ihe
sun impinge upon the retina of thc
eye. They are called light waves, but.
of course, there Is no light without an
eye.
There ls a substance thnt fills all
space. We cannot perceive lt because
it has no molecular structure. It con
tains no ntoms. But we do know that
it is elastic; it has waves of known
length and measured velocity.
This substance, called the "lumlnlf-
erous ether," is absolutely transparent
as we may judge from the fact that
light comes through It to us from stars
at unfathomable distances. If it were
made up of molecules, like material
bodies, such transparency would be in
conceivable.
It is called a "fluid," but it does not
flow. Apparently it is stationary. The
enrth, travelling at a speed of eighteen
miles a second In Ils journey around
the sun, does not disturb the ether ln
the slightest degree. If It did so, the
light waves that come to us from the
stars would be disturbed.
What, then, ls this strange kiter-
slellar substance on which all terrestrial activity depends? Science believes that now, for the first time, It Is
nble to give an answer to the question.
The ether is the substance out of
which everything in creation is made.
The rocks are made of it; tbe plants
are made of It; you yourself nre made
of it.
Material bodies of all kinds are
composed of molecules. These molecules nre made up of "electrons,"
which aro revolving nt enormous
speed.
.Molecules differ; atoms differ; but
the electrons are all exactly the same
substance. They are tiny packages of
ether.

A Man of Action
John Desmond awoke at three ln the
morning and tossed about in his bed.
Within him a fierce struggle between
tbe brain and the heart was in progress. He employed every scheme
that he was aware of to court or compel sleep, without success.
Suddenly the truth dawned upon
him, like a flood ot soft warm light.
He was ln love. The love of his life,
compared with which all his past loves
were mere idle fancies. The battle
was over. John Desmond, thirty,
lawyer, athlete, man of tbe world, was
conquered.
Being a man of action Desmond no
sooner acknowledged to himself that
he really was in love with Kate Evan-
stun that he resolved to marry her at
the enrllest possible delay.
Kate Evanston was seated at the
piano in the drawing room of Mrs,
Suulsbury's beautiful home, where she
was employed as companion to the
lady of the house. The rich light of
a middle-May evening pervaded the
place.
Her fingers were softly bringing
back memories of Ermine aud other
Casino delights as her thoughts
traveled back over the past.
After a time she arose from the
piano, aud, picking up a number of
photographs of John Desmond's
friends that lay upon tlie table, seated
herself upon a sofa with her back to
the door and proceeded to contemplate
each of them.
Desmond returning home early tbat
evening let himself iuto his aunt's
house very quietly witli his lutch key,
hoping to catch Kate at the piano In
the middle of one of the sweet airs
which he had grown of late to love.
He approached the great drawing-
room doors and took a peep through
the crevice which separated them, ln
an instant his heart seemed to cease
beating with almost electrical suddenness, for the sight which his maddened
brain encountered filled him with rage
uud jealousy.
With a heart of Ice and lead he was
about to turn to leave the house as
noiselessly as he had entered when
the sinking sun shot a ray of light into the room and revealed something
which made the blood course faster
through his body than it had ever
coursed before. Then he turned away,
and, closing the door very softly behind him, descended the front steps of
tbe house aud passed down the street.

THE MANAGER WILL BE GLAD TO FURNISH
PARTICULARS UPON APPLICATION
Mrs. Salsbury and Miss Evanston
were at their dessert that evening before John appeared. He had left word
in the morning that he might be detained until a late hour, and so they
had not waited dinner for him.
Mrs. Salsbury noticed that her
nephew seemed to be laboring under
considerable restraint, and bluntly
asked him the cause; but the good
body's solicitude met only with evasion, and she presently gave up all attempts to draw anything from him,
and retired early to her room, leaving
John and Kate alone together.
No sooner hail Mrs. Saulsbury quitted the dining-room that Desmond
turned to Kate, and said:
"Miss Evanston, I'm going to ask
you to do me a favor."
Kate looked at him inquisitively.
"I want you," he continued, "to accompany me on a bit of a shopping
tour. I've got a peculiar mission to
execute, and I want your help. Will
you do It?"
"To be sure.   I shall be most happy,
Mr. Desmond," Kate answered, "aud if
you'll excuse me I'll be prepared in
very few minutes."
The streets were dark by the time
they left the house for the shopping
quarter of the town, and Kate took
Desmond's arm. They had walked for
a few moments in silence wheu Desmond said:
"I want to explain this errand to
you, aud uo doubt you, too, will think
it peculiar. As a matter of fact, I'v
been commissioned to arrango for the
"Two couples?" Kate asked, quietly,
wedding of two very dear friends."
"Why, no! only one couple, a man
and a woman," John answered, somewhat puzzled at the question.
"And was she a very dear friend?"
the girl at his side asked.
"Yes; the dearest friend I ever hud
among women; in fact, the only
woman I ever really cared for."
In a moment John was half sorry,
half glad he had said this, for he felt
the little hand of his companion withdrawn until only the tips of the fingers
rested upon his arm. "That's a good
sign," he mused.
For a moment nothing was said;
then Miss Evanston broke the silence.
"And didn't she care for you?" she
asked.
"Yes," he replied. "She loved me.
and she still loves me."
Presently Kate's curiosity got the
better of her judgment, and she asked:
"And the man—you say he's a dear
friend, too?"
"Yes," replied Desmond, "the only
one I ever trusted absolutely."
"And does lie know that you love
her, and that she loves you?"
"He knows absolutely thai   [  love
her, and he is mighty glad that she
loves me."
Kate was now thoroughly mystified.
"And which of them asked you to
arrange for the wedding?" she asked.
"He did," replied John, curtly.
Kate could   only   say: "Well,   this
mission, as you term it, certainly is inexplicable."
"Oh, no it isn't," said John. "It will
all seem quite simple when the explanation comes, if any is needed, in fact,
I think it will explain itself. Just you
keep those eyes of yours open and you
will see it all very shortly."
Presently John touched his companion slightly on the arm and drew her
into the shop of the village jeweler.
"Now I want you to pick out the
kind of a wedding ring you think the
bride should get," lie said.
When lie had paid for and pocketed
the plain gold band, they resumed
their walk down the village street, and
stopped at tlie local ollice of a great
metropolitan daily, and Desmnod, leaving Kate at one side, went up to the
desk and wrote out a brief notice, and
was about leaving with her when the
advertising clerk called after him and
said he had not told him when he
wished the notice to he inserted.
"Why, tomorrow, of course," Desmond replied.
"Now then," said John, as they
turned into a side street, "We'll go
and make arrangements for the parson to tie the knot, and then we will
have finished our mission."
They turned into the gravel walk
leading to the Reverend John Barclay's house, and had just reached the
vine-clad porch when Desmond suddenly stopped, as if he had hut that
moment thought of au important thing,
and, turning to Kate, who was standing close to him, almost whlspo;
"1 want to ask another favor ot y
heading his face close to hers, "1 want
you to let me kiss you hefore we gi
iu there." And It was done in a 1110
ment."
Beforo Kale could recover from tlu
perfect amazement Into which John's
action had thrown her, he had dexterously drawn her arm through liis and.
leading her up the steps, had rung the
door bell.
The Hev. Barclay answered the metallic summons iu person, and gave
John a most cordial welcome, which
surprised Kate, for she had always
supposed John au Agnostic, und didn't
think that he numbered members of
the clergy among his intimates,
"Mr. Barclay," began John, when
they had entered the snug parlor,
where the good gentleman's wile was
seated doing some fancywork, "I've
come over tonight to arrange for a
wedding, and I want you to perform
the ceremony."
"When is it to come off," asked the
clergyman, consulting a small date
book which lie had drawn from a
waistcoat pocket.
"Immediately," said John.
Reverend Barclay cast a quiet
glance at Kate. "And who are the
parties to he married?" he asked.
John took Kate's hand in his own,
and answered firmly: "Tills lady, Miss
Kate Evanston, and myself."
Kate could not believe her ears. Shu
stared at John in amazement. Ile hastened to reassure her.
"You're -excited, my dear Kate.
Calm yourself."
The whole truth came home to her.
The explanation of the mysterious errand was solved. She looked into
John's eyes and read love unspeakable, and her own answered in kind.
She went through the ceremony like
one in a dream, and feared it was" a
dream, and fioped if it were she would
never waken.
The parson tied (he knot, and John
slipped the ring which Kale had selected upon her linger, and then llie
parson insisted his osculalory per-
perquisite, and then they started for
home, both supremely happy. All the
way back Kate clung strongly to
John's arm.
Before they had quitted llie Barclay
garden Kale said to Desmond: "Why
did you want lo kiss mo before we
went into the house?"
"I'll tell you," returned John, promptly. "You see, Barclay and I were
classmates, 1 knew his propensities,
and I didn't waul io suffer the reflection in afler years that he had Kissed
my wife lirst."
When the happy couple reached
their own home, Kale said:
"You arc (he most audacious man I
ever met You bought the ring and
even inserted a noiice of our marriage
before you had asked ine to many
you. Tell nie why you did not ask
me flrst. How did you know I'd not
refuse to marry you and make a scene
in tho minister's house?"
And Desmond answered: "When a
man of action sees a girl kissing the
picture he knows that the time for
action not words has como and he
carries her off to the parson."
Kale blushed furiously, and pressing her facf against his shoulder,
whispered ever so low, "1 love an
audacious man."

SCHOOL FIRE  ESCAPE  DANGEROUS
Complaints are frequently heard of tho unsultahllity of
the fire escape placed at the now school. An inspection
Will convince anyone wilh unbiased judgment that the
complaints are warranted, and that it Is a typo of escape
not at all suitable for a school.
Tho apparatus is made of iron and apparently would
serve its purpose well lu an emergency until the children
arrived at the foot of the stairs and had to gol on fo the
ladder, The top of ihis ladder Is some ten feet or more
from tlie ground, and Is fastened perpendicularly to the
side of the school. How anyone with average Intelligent
could expect children, in the excitement of a lire, in safely
negotiate that ladder is beyond understanding, Willi four
class room to draw from, there would naturally be crowding at thc top and fallen children with broken limits would
inevitably result.   This should he changed withoul delay.
We should have a measure of self-respect for ourselves
Canadian money represents Canada, and has bnch of it
almost unlimited natural resources re-inforced hy the Indomitable and deop-rooted sense of tlie Canadian people.
Canada can redeem every pledge in gold, and we as Canadians should stand upon our dignity.
PROFITS FROM GOVERNMENT  LIQUOR
It is something of a paradox that the estimated revenue
which appears in the provincial budget, under ihe heading
"Ontario Temperance Act," is really money derived from
the consumption of Intoxicating liquor. According to the
annual report of the Licence Hoard, tho government grog
shops made a net profit of $S«0,iVoo on the sale nf $3,363,000
of wet goods. And of $847,OUU paid in fines Tor B.O.T.A.,
the government got $273,000-, of which riot quite one-half
was spent in enforcement of tlie law. All told tho thirsi
of the province enriched the treasury to the extent of over
one million dollars.
Apparently the Hon. Peter Smith feels lhat a wave of
reform is ou the way, for ho figures that the Ontario Temperance Act Is good for just half that amount this year.
If the wave doesn't materialize, the provincial treasurer
will have thc joy of announcing a surplus in at least one
department. And if it does come, he will gladly forego
that financial triumph because of the happiness which will
befall his much-harried colleague, the attorney-general.—

If people won't accept your money at its face value the

IMPERIAL EMIGRATION
"Daughter am I in my Mother's house, but .Mistress in my
own"—tbe Kipling lines apply to Australia, New Zealand,
Newfoundland and South Africa, as well as to Canada,
Thoir gates are theirs to open or to close. Already Canada's
are closed against immigration from India—British subjects. They would never he closed, though, against English, Scotch, Welsh or Irish. Canada has an abundance of
room, and if just now it appears that her resources are too
little developed to give employment to her present population, the normal situation is that she needs immigration
to accelerate development. And under normal conditions
the Dominion would give preference to immigrants from
tlie Motherland.-—Providence Journal.
A member of the Quebec Legislature has introduced a hill
for the imprisonment, without the option of a fine, of
drunken drivers of automobiles. This may sound drastic,
hut on tho othor hand the possible injury a drunken driver
may do is very great indeed. A horse may more or less be
left to take care of itself, but a motor car has no intelligence of its own. The Quebec hill is ono which may be
profitably studied and imitated elsewhere.
AS OLD AS TBEY FEEL
The secret of success at'every age Is "to work on and
keep the passion fresh," aud there are abundant examples
of thoso who by doing this have placed themselves in advancing years among the immortals. Mr. Hardy, for example, disappointed with the criticisms on his^ novel^ turned
to writing his great poem, "The Dynasts," the first part of
which lie published at 63. Handel was broken down in
health and bankrupt at 53, when he began to compose the
music which has made his fame. Mr. Clemenceau was 70
when, by his firmness in mooting the German offensive of
ID IS, he saved his country and Europe.—London Daily Mail
THE SOUL OF A CHILD
It is very difficult for an older person who has forgotten
Ills own childish feelings and dreams to understand chlld-
tiaturo. The child is nol an adult on a reduced scale, but
in onttroly dtfferonl being, living in a world of Its own, a
world whlcli it will sooner or later discover for itself Is
unreal, and needing correction and adjustment,
[| tho child were really an adult on a reduced scale there
would lie no problem to solve, no need for a separate
diagnoses even. All thai would lie necessary would be to
diagnose tlle aduli soul und fractionally reduce It to scale.
Tli<' old type of teaching proceeded somewhat on these
lines, and llie aim was lo bring as speedily as po.ssible tbe
adult's Idons Into the child's range. What tho-child could
not he Induced to nccopl was forced upon him by the rod.
Itosseau waa practically the first to discover that the
child lived a life of its own in a world of its own, and to
demand that ii should be allowed to live It in freedom,
We have gone far since his time, and now aro approaching
ile extromo when. H seems that the Wildest thing the
adult can do is to get out of the child's way!
Psycho-analysis does at least show us that every child
is a separate entity, that children do not run In types or
classes, and lhat each must he dealt with independently of
the rest. The Individual educator should be tbe parent first
and the teacher second, and each particular child can be
Hie better educated Iho more thoroughly it is understood,
—From ''The Queen."
We help to push ourselves out of jobs every time we

A record in Freemasonry which is perhaps a world's
record, has been made by Brother F. Jones, of Lodge 891
Bnniskillen, Ireland. At the annual installation dinner he
was presented with a silver salver on the completion of his

period Brother Jones only missed four meetings, when he
was forbidden to attend hy doctor's orders.

YOUR TOWN
If you want to have tlio kind of home town
Like Iho kind of a town you like,
Yon needn't slip your clothes in a grip
And start on a long, long hike;
You'll only hnd what yuu left behind,
For there's nothing that's really new.
It's a knock at yourself when you knock your town;
It isn't your town—it's you.
You wouldn't expect, if you mined your soil,
Bumper crops tiiat you used to get;
Nor aught hut runts from feeding that stunts,
Nor payment without a debt.
Ono gets returns from what he earns—
Something must first bo due.
If your town doesn't pay, look at it in this way:
It isn't your town—it's you.
Real towns are not made by men afraid
Thai others will get ahead;
When everyone works and nobody shirks
You can raise a town from the dead;
And if, while you make your personal stake,
Your neighbors can make one too,
Your town will ho wlint you want it to be,
It isn't your town—it's you.

A ghost story of the comical sort is
told in a recent book. At an English
country house a lady was put in tlie
haunted chamber. In the middle of
the night she was wakened by feeling,
to her horror, that the bedclothes were
being dragged off her. She held on to
them desperately, but they were ruthlessly snatched away. She got up,
dressed herself and waited in speechless fear for morning. In the breakfast room she was about to tell her
fearful tale when another guest, a
mnn, said to tbe hostess: "I woke so
cold In tho night thnt I went into tlie
ghost room and took the clothes oil the
bed, to make myself warm. I knew
you wouldn't put any one in there."

A wife's job may be divided Into

Bearing children; spending her husband's money; keeping her husband

And her biggest job is the last of
these! For the first is pretty much a
matter of biology, the second of econ

only from above."
There Is alwnys a protective quality
In a man's love for n woman. But also

Thc woman lie goes home to at night

The revival of the Ku Klux Klan in
tlio Southern Status has created wide
spread interest as to tlie ultimate re
suit of this resurrection. In some
quarters it is claimed to presuge no
good, aud is bound to create a period
of rioting and trouble that may fake
some time to eradicate,
The encouraging feature of the revival is the almost universal condem-
tiation of tlie Klan by the press and
pulpit of the South, Led by Governor
Bickett of North Carolina, who characterized the Klan as "a smokescreen [or anarchy" aud the "wildest
of wildcat schemes," the prevailing
sentiment among the better element
seems lo be relentlessly against the
organization.
Bul once more white robed, masked
figures are riding through tlie South
Again tlie flaming cross is being
carried in tours of darkness.
Men, mysteriously summoned from
their homes at all hours and responding without question, are holding midnight conclaves on lonely mountain
tops, in deep woodlands.
Tlie plcturesqueuess of history is
being reacted before our eyes—the
history ot* fifty years ago, the history
of those dark days of reconstruction
that followed the civil war. The Ku
Klux Klan is in the saddle again.
And, most strange of all, the clans
men are riding northward. They are
laughing at the claims that they will
not be allowed on Northern soil. They
are already there.
The extent of thc operations of the
movement aro shielded with deep
secrecy, tlie same secrecy which was
applied in tlie days of the activities of
the white-robed riders of old.
Klan Lender.
According to tlie rules of the order,
only one man's name appears in public. He is Col. William J. Simmons,
known as the Imperial Wizard of the
Klan. Col. Simmons has his headquarters in Atlanta. The Klan Is organized along military lines, and the
leader is surrounded by his chief of
stalT and staff officers. The executive
officers of tlie organization occupy the
third floor of a downtown office building, and spread over half a dozen
rooms into another building.
Every effort was made to find out
tiie exact extent of the order as lt exists today in various states and cities.
It is one of its tenets, however, that
these facts lie kept secret At the
same time, after the most careful in
vestigatlon, it is possible to say that
at present it extends fairly well
throughout the South, and ls penetrating into somo of the larger cities of
the North,
1110,000 Members.
It appears to have, all told, about
100,000 members, 70,000 of them being
in the South and 30,000 in the North.
It claims to have more than 5000 members in the City of New York. Other
cities where beginnings have been
made are Chicago, St. Louis, Denver
and San Francisco.
Tlie first tiling which was impressed
by Col. Simmons and his assistants
was that the organization stands absolutely for law and order. It Is one of
tlie rules of tlie order that if any one
of its members or local klans engages
in any operation of an illegal character, or contrary to the wishes and
policies of law enforcement officers,
that member or local body shall be
banished from the organization.
Tlie while slieetlike disguise which
is the distinguishing costume of tho
order is permitted to be worn only on
official occasions, when regular meetings are being held in the lodge rooms,
or wheu the organizations parading
through the streets by permission of
the police authorities,
Oppose "lllue Laws."
The work of the order in behalf of
American ideals is done quietly,
largely by personal conversations and
contact. On such occasions the costume is uot worn uud intimidation ls
not resorted to unless It be upon tlie
advice and witli llie co-operation of the
regularly constituted law-enforcoment
olllcers of llie community.
A general idea of tlie purpose of the
organization may lie had from the fact
that, aside from the idea of what Col,
Simmons constantly defers to as "the
supremacy of the white Caucasian
race," it is absolutely opposed to blue
law legislation, and believes that already state and national legislatures
have gone much too far in restricting
the personal liberty of the American
citizen; and that carefully-drawn and
conscientiously executed immigration
laws should be employed to keep from
ihe Slates all persons who are not fitted in every respect to take part ln
carrying forward this government in
accordance wilh the ideas of the men
who founded it.
lt seems that the leaders have In
mind a possibility of an eventual at-
WE take pride in the fact lhat we are not mere sellers of Ford Cars,
Trucks and Tractors.
We take pride in being part of an organization which renders service
of value to the community. More than half of all the cars in Canada are
Fords. If every Ford owner were suddenly deprived of his car, truck or
tractor, the effect upon the business and pleasures of the people would
be one of the greatest consequence.
In this community it is our duty to see that the high ideals of Ford
service are translated into practical, helpful action.
When a business man asks us "Will a Ford pay?" we present him with
practical results of our investigations into the problems ol many business
men. We believe such hard facts will prove a real service to you. And we
are anxious to supply this practical service.
The Ford is meeting the problems of competition in ways that have
opened the eyes of pract ical business men to their needs for Ford service.
From the hard and fast business point of view we want you to talk
this thing over with us. Take advantage ot Ford service. We sell genuine
Ford parts.   Let us come to you wilh facts and figures.

tempt to so alter the constitution that
the ballot may be restricted to tlie
white race, This, however, Is was explained, is something for thc far-distant future—if at all—and the leaders
of the organization would be content
to preach It for the next fifty years
even if no actual results could be
shown.
The modern Ku Klux Klan is a
standard fraternal society, with all the
social and ritualistic features of such
an order, and was Incorporated by tlie
State of Georgia and a special charter
granted it by the superior court of
Fulton County, Georgia. It is, therefore, a recognized legal and lawful institution of America. The supreme
court of the United States has certified
to its right to live when the order several years ago sought and secured an
injunction against a fraudulent imitation order, and the case was appealed
to the court—with a final decision
given to tlie Knights of tlie Ku Klux
Klan all of the prerogatives and privileges and rights to paraphernalia,
emblems, costumes, etc., possessed by
the original order.
The Idea of reviving the Ku Klux
Klan occurred to Col. Simmons ubout
twenty years ago. For many yenrs ho
thought It over, studied the records of
the old organization and prepared
himself for thc work. Then, ill October 1915 he mentioned his ambition
to some of his friends, including three
men who wero members of tho original
organization when It was disbanded lu
1871 by Gen. Nathan D. Forrest, the
fnmoiis Confederate cavalry chieftain.

of a scion of an aristocratic old New
York family, Stephen Siward, who has
inherited a taste for strong drink. His
weakness bids fair to conquer him
until he meets Sylvia Landls ut a
fashionable week-end party In the
country. She ls engaged to marry
Stephen's chief enemy, Quarrler, who
has already done young Siward much
harm In a social and business way.
But, seizing the "lighting chance" of
winning Sylvia and overcoming his
falling for alcohol at the same time,
Stephen engages ln a dramatic battle
and finally comes out successful.
One of the biggest and most attractive scenes is whore Stephen, the hero,
and Sylvia Landls dive together into
a swimming pool aud their lips meet
in a fond good-bye underneath (lie
water. The scene was only described
in the book. It is shown iu all its
glory In the picture.
WALLACE REID SCORES
BIG IN "HAWTHORNE
THE ADVENTURER"
Wallace Held has Injected his breezy
personality into another screen romantic comedy with the usual pleasing results. This time it is "Hawthorne the Adventurer," adapted from
the stage play In which Douglas Fairbanks appeared on Broadway. The
picture ls being shown at the Ilo-Ilo
Theatre on Monday.
There are several good reasons for
the increasing popularity which this
young star Is winning, and all of them
are In his latest film. According to
the story, he and Harrison Ford are
two law clerks, not too well heeled
with money, who are making an econ
omical tour of Europe In a rented
automobile. Down to their last five-
franc note, Willie risks It all at Monte
Carlo, and breaks the bank. Intending to visit Venice with their wealth,
they are misdirected to the little King
dom of Bovlna. Here Wallace Reid
follows his breeze-blown cap over
wall and meets the Princess Irma.
The country is lu tbe throes of a
revolution, which is right to the liking of (lie star. By a lavish display of
greenbacks and a few honeyed words
he uuells the revolt, then proceeds.to
turn tbe kingdom topsy-turvy, injecting Canadian pep and business
methods until a year later finds Bo-
vlnia a thriving land. Thereupon the
old king decides it is time to discard
aristocracy altogether and proclaims
the country a republic. So Wallace's
charmer, the Princess, becomes merely
a Miss and they are free to marry.
"THE SILENT BARRIER"
BIG SPECIAL ATTRACTION
FOR WEDNESDAY NEXT
A Triumph of Love on the Peaks
of the Snow-Clad Alps—The
Best Louis Tracy Story.
"The Silent Barrier," a full-of
action drama, with a remarkable love
story woven into a maze of thrilling
adventure, was enacted by a powerful
aggregation of stage and screen
favorites.
A drama of the Swiss Alps, "The
Silent Barrier," first of Louis Tracy's
widely-read novels produced for the
screen by Gibraltar Pictures, was enacted for the most part at Lake Placid,
N.Y., the St. Moritz of America, and
Director Worthington had as his chief
aid aud art director, Ernest Des
Baillets, the noted Swiss Illustrator,
specially engaged because of his wide
reputation as an expert in all that pertains to scenery, costuming, architecture and outdoor customs of Switzerland. Some of the snow scenes In
The Silent Barrier," which shows at
the llo-llo ou Tuesday, are of a most
unusual character and all ot them
have a direct bearing on the gripping
plot ln the Tracy story, which includes
plunges over precipices, mountain
sledge races, skiing competition and
other difficult mountaineering feats.
THE
EXCHANGE RATE
V.--What Controls It?
THE previous numbers of this series explained that the foreign dollar is not
money but a commodity, and that the inconvenience of settling international debts
in gold has led to the use of Bills of Exchange. We now come to the effect of the
Trade Balance on the exchange value of the
dollar.
If we bought from the United States
goods to exactly the same value as those we
sold to them, broadly speaking, there would
be no exchange problem between us, since
the amount of Bills of Exchange offered for
sale in each country would just cover the
requirements of those wanting to pay debts
in the other.
At present, however, we are buying from
the United States far more than they are
from us. In consequence many Bills of Exchange, representing Canadians dollars, are
being offered in the money markets of the
United States by American vendors and
few bids are being made for them. The
holders, to dispose of them, lower the price
until they become a tempting bargain. The
Canadian dollars are therefore at a discount
in the United States.
On the other hand, only comparatively
few United States dollar Bills of Exchange,
created by the sale of Canadian goods, are
being offered in Canada and there are many
Didders who want to buy them to pay their
debts in the United States. In consequence
the competition is keen, the price rises and
United States dollars are at a premium here.
We will deal next week in No. VI. with
the effect on the exchange rate of one result
of war financing, namely the Inflation of
the Currency.

"MAN AND HIS WOMAN"
Woman as a Soul Spinner, a
Soul Wrecker and Soul Saver.
"Man and His Woman," in which
Herbert Rawlinson is starred, and
which shows at the llo-llo on Thurs
day next, Is a powerful and convincing
photoplay.
The action centres about Dr. John
Worthing, discoverer ot a tuberculosis
serum. His single life is worth thousands of others, for he has the power
to restore health. But men are made
or broken by women.
The perfidy of his fiancee broke him
In spirit, soul and body. Then the
other woman found him. With her
knowledge as a trained nurse she restored health to his body, and with the
strength of her purity and love, restored bis soul. Good had built up
what evil had torn down, and a valuable man was saved for the world.
Mountains, pine trees, waterfalls
and rushing streams make up the outdoor scenic background for the story.
