EVERY MUN HND
WOMAN OVER 16
MUST REGISTER
It is the declared policy of the
Dominion Government to provide
for the mobilizntion of the resources of the nation so as to enable Canada to make her maximum contribution towards the
successful prosecution of the
war in men, foodstuffs, munitions and ships. As a pre-req-
uisite to that undertaking and as
providing the only basis upon
which it can be proceeded with
intelligently, the government
has ordered the registration of
the man and woman power of
Canada and has created the Canada Registration Board, vesting
it with all the powers necessary
to perform the task.
The plan of organization a-
dopted by the Board for taking
the registration, is in many respects similar to that employed
for a Dominion election. The
electoral constituency will be the
territorial unit, for each such
unit there will be a registrar and
serving under the registrar will
be a staff of deputy registrars
each in charge of a place of registration just as a deputy returning officer is in charge of a polling sub-division. For the purpose of registration, the public
schools of the Dominion will be
utilized and the date will be
probably on a Saturday either in
the latter fart of June or July.
Mr. W. N. Carty, of Vancouver, appointed by order-in-coun-
cii, registrar for the man and
woman power for the district of
Comox-Alberni, was in Cumberland this week arranging for the
registration in this community,
and appointed Edward W. Bickle
chief,registrar for the Cumberland district No. 11, which commences at Comox Lake and south
of the Wellington Colliery Railway, including Bevan, Punt-
ledge and Minto to Royston
Wharf and Trent River.
Mr. Bickle will have full power to arrange for assistant deputies and an appeal is being made
for voluntary assistance in connection with this registration.
From the Atlantic to the Pacific
assistance has been offered by
the Labor Unions and the various
Patriotic and Womens' Associations, school teachers and professional men,
Every male and female of the
age of 16 years and over, including all nationalties, must register at the appointed time. Very
severe penalties are provided for
those neglecting to do so.
Regulations approved by order
of His Excellency the Governor
General in Council of 22nd., April, 1918, says in part:
Any person to whom a registration certificate has not been
issued shall be deemed to be unregistered arid the burden of
proving registration shall be with
the person who alleges it. Where
it is provided that, any offence
shall be punishable by fine and
imprisonment it shall be competent to the court adjudging the
punishment to impose either fine
or imprisonment or both fine and
imprisonment within the limits
specified according to the discretion of the court.
„On the day of Registration appointed therefor booths shall be
opened at seven o'clock in the
morning and they shall remain
open until ten o'clock at night;
and the persons required to register within the hours aforesaid
and at one of the places appointed for registration.
Any one failing to register
shall be guilty of an offence and
shall be liable upon conviction to
a penalty nob exceeding one
hundred dollars and to imprisonment for any term not exceeding
one month and shall for so long
as he remain unregistered forfeit
his right and be disentitled to
obtain or continue in any employment or to receive or earn
any salary emolument, or wages,
and forfeit his right to the services of any person in his employment although he shall nevertheless remain liable for any salary or wages earned by such
person during that time and forfeit his right and be disentitled
to board and lodging at any hotel, public house, restaurant, or
boarding house and forfeit his
right to purchase any railway or
steamboat ticket or use any public conveyance. Every registrant must carry certificate and
exhibit it on demand.

appointed registrar for Courtenay, A. W. Hilton for Headquarters and Herbert Glover for
Union Bay.

John P. Watson  Passes Away
The unexpected news of the
death of John Peter Watson, at
the Cumberland General Hospital became known in the early
hours-of Tuesday morning. Very-
few knew that he was so seriously ill, although ailing for the past
six months lie was able to be
around until a few days ago. The
deceased died at 11 o'clock on
Monday evening. He was born
at Stellerton, Nova Scotia 57
years ago and was a resident of
Cumberland and district for the
past twenty-five years and we
only knew him to esteem him
more highly as the years passed
by and today we miss his kindly
smile and friendly greeting. A
short funeral service was held at
the residence of the deceased on
Maryport Avenue on Wednesday,
Rev. James Hood of St. George's
Presbyterian Church, officiating,
and paying a beautiful tribute to
the memory of the deceased.
The casket was covered with the
most beautiful floral designs loving fingers ever wrought, all of
which spoke of peace, purity and
immortality. At the close of the
services an unusually long procession followed the funeral car
to our silent city. At the open
grave we say "farewell," may
God's purest angels guard his
slumbers. He was a kind and
indulgent father and leaves two
daughters, aged 14 and 19, in
this eity, and a son at Boston
aged 20, the mother having died
some years ago.
He was to his friends the soul
of fellowship, but the greatest of
all he was a man, kind and generous, to all, especially towards
those who needed assistance. He
believed that the man who scatters flowers in the pathway of
his fellowmen, who lets into the
dark places of life the sunshine
of human sympathy and human
happiness is following in the
footsteps of his Master.

SATURDAY, MAY 25th, 1918
The expense of fitting up playgrounds is not great, and should
be met by public appropriation,
Healthful play to build up the
body is as necessary as schools
to educate the mind, and should
receive a" due proportion of attention.
The Duke of Wellington gave
credit  to  the   playing fields of
Eton for the winning of the battle of Waterloo, and in this he
paid a tribute to healthful play
and  emphasized   the  need   of
I playgrounds that the boys of our
\ cities—our   coming   men—may
J have the advantage  of healthy
exercise under safe and sanitary
conditions.
PLAYGROUNDS.
If the men of today in our cities and towns could be persuaded
to look back to the days of their
boyhood, and realize what the
open air meant to them, there
would be no need to plead for
their support on behalf of playgrounds for our boys.
lt is said that in "Who's Who
in Canada," a compilation of the
prominent men of this country,
eighty-five per cent of the names
are those of men born on the
farm. Only one valid resison can
be given for this large proportion of country-born Canadians
reaching prominence, and that
is the healthy conditions under
which they started life. Born
beyond the crowded streets of
our larger towns and cities, with
plenty of good pure air and ample room for healful play and
recreation, they commenced
their careers under conditions almost ideal for the building up of
strong bodies and active minds,
and in the strain of business
cares this great handicap has
told in their favour.
Conditions have changed, however, in this country, and we
now have in our cities many
thousands of lads without the opportunities that were available
to our today leading men. Crowded streets, tenements, apartment blocks, and near-slums are
accumulating, and in such unhealthy surroundings many children are reared. No space is
available for their games except
the street, and the long list of
street accidents demonstrates
the use that is made of tbem by
the children in answering the
call to the open.
The establishment of playgrounds for the children is one
of our greatest social needs.
True, some cities have opened
playgrounds, and their popularity
demonstrates how great is the
need.
BUY  YOUR  WINTER   ECGS
IN MAY AND JUNE
Eggs laid in April, May and
early June keep better than those
laid later in the season. If properly treated, they will keep in
perfect condition from eight to
twelve months. If the eggs are
to be boiled, the larger end should
be pierced with a needle point
hefore putting them in the boiling water. The eggs, to begin
with, must be fresh and clean,
not washed clean, but laid clean.
If the shell of an egg is not clean
use it at once. If there is a spot
of soil on the shell the water
glass does not come in contact
with the shell and the egg will
decay. A quart of water glass
in a five-gallon crock or agateware container will suffice for 15
dozen eggs. Clean the crock
thoroughly, scald till hot, wipe
dry and stand in the sun, if convenient. Boil nine quarts of
water, allow it to cool thoroughly
then add the water glass and stir
well in the crock. Stand the
crock in a cool, dry place and do
not move unnecessarily after the
eggs are packed. Put the eggs
loosely, but carefully, in the solution, leaving a depth of two
inches or more over the top layer
of eggs. Tie heavy oiled paper
over the crock to prevent evaporation. For more than 15 dozen
eggs, two crocks are preferable
to one large one. After using
the water glass once, it must be
thrown away.
If water glass is too expensive
or is unobtainable, add 3 pounds
of unslacked lime to 5 gallons of
water. After the lime has dissolved and settled, carefully dip
off the clear water and pour over
the eggs as with water-glass.
Do not pour the water glass or
lime water over the eggs till it
has thoroughly cooled.
Retired farmers are numerous
in Canada. They can perform
a national service by selling their
experience and assistance to
farmers in order to relieve the
farm labor shortage.
Grow your own supply of vegetable seeds for next year. The
Dominion Department of Agriculture has issued a leaflet to tell
you how.

Save Beef! Save Money!
Save Coal!
The following statistics should be interesting to all who
are interested ir. the conservation of either Beef,  Coal
or money:
Weight of Joint
when cooked
4 pounds
6 pounds
8 pounds
10 pounds
12 pounds
Weight to be ordered from Butcher
when cooking is done by
Electricity Coal or Wood
4 pounds 8 oz. 5 pounds 11 oz.
6 pounds 13 oz. 8 pounds 9 oz.
9 pounds 2 oz. 11 pounds 7 oz.
11 pounds 6 oz. 14 pounds 5 oz.
13 pounds 10 oz. 17 pounds 2 oz.
The above figures are given in the Standard Handbook for Electrical Engineers and are the results of
actual experiments.
With beef at 30c. a pound you will pay $1.72 for a
51b lloz. roast, or $1.35 for a 41b 8oz. roast.
Thus if you cook the meat in an electric oven you
will save for yourself 37 cents, and for your country lib
3oz. of beef. Think of it! 20% of our meat supply
wasted in coal stoves. This means that you will get
equal to a
Discount of 20% on your meat bill
if you cook-by electricity, and yon will be saving beef
money and coal for the boys at the front.
Think it Over!

This is to urge you
that you get your Suits Cleaned, Repaired and Pressed for
on'! month. Then form your
own conclusion. If it leads to
better spirits, better health,
continue it. If it does away
with dirt, improves your appearance, continue it. Remember a well-dressed man always
wants the best.
Also you must get your shoes
cleaned; and don't throw vour
tan shoes away because they
are old—have them dyed.

Canada imports annually, canned sardines valued at over $100-
000. The major portion of these
imports are from the United
States, Norway, the United Kingdom and Portugal, in the order
named. Oddly enough, only 20
per cent of the New Brunswick
catch is canned in this country.
The remaining 80 per cent is
shipped to Maine to be canned by
American canners. The Canada
Food Board is at present taking
active steps to have these fish
canned in Canada, which will be
an advantage to Canadian consumers.

with a red card for the roof. And so on, until you have exhausted the possibilities of every known color combination.
