VETERANS' CLUBS HAVE
SCHEME TO KEEP BEER
Joint Meeting Resolves to Mave
Lockers Same as Used in
Civilians' Rendezvous
Committees from three soldier organizations, the G.W.V.A., Army ana
Navy and the O.A.l'.V. of Vancouver
held a meeting to discuss the beer
question, which hns been such a hot
subject in the Terminal City. The
locker system, similar to that In use
In civilian clubs, was decided upon,
and the secretaries and the clubs'
legal advisers were instructed to
frame the method of procedure.
At a later meeting the details ot the
plan were outlined aud the following
announcement given to the press:
"Representatives of tlle G.W.V.A.,
Army and Navy, G.A.U.V. and South
Vancouver Army and Navy veterans
associations decide to close their
canteens. A locker system similar to
that in vogue In leading civilian clubs
will be Installed, by which members
may store their own private stocks of
beer, but spirituous liquors will, as
heretofore, be absolutely forbidden.
"The committee were unanimous in
resolving to concentrate on ways and
means of having their old privileges
restored at the next session of the
legislature."
/COSTS 5100 TO MAKE A
"FORD"—MATERIAL $50
American Fords Produced at a
Wonderfully Cheap Price—
Big Profits for Wizard
DETROIT.—In considering how Mr.
Ford extricated himself from his financial difficulties the profit on his product must not be overlooked. Cost of
factory production, Including commercial overhead, is now ?93 a car.
Materials are understood not to exceed
$50 a car. Ford purchases are now
around $50,000,000 monthly for a production in excess of 100,000 cars.
This would give a total cost of $143.
From the lowest selling price for a
touring car—$415—must be deducted
l"1^ per cent., or $73, for agents' commission, leaving an estimated net of
$109.    E.  G.   Pipp,  former  editor  of
Ford's    Dearborn    Independent,    recently estimated profits   per   car   at
$1S9.    It is probable that, excluding
overhead, the actual cost of a Ford
I car is around $100.   Only nine men a
\ day are required to produce a Ford.
'Ford's daily receipts are In excess of
, $2,000,000, and   his   cash   balance   Is
¥80,000,000.
j The lowest previous cost of a Ford
! was in 1017. when the touring car sold
for $360. Total cost then is under-
, stood to have been $291, leaving a net
ot $79. Reduction iu overhead, cut in
inventories and production economies
| are credited with the difference.
j Ford's method of handling materials
admirably illustrates the extent to
which he has cut down demands on
I working capital.
To simplify accounting, Ford re-
; cently announced that bills would nol
fall due until the twentieth of the following month. Example—Ford can
order a trainload of steel to be delivered the first of September. Under
present market and transportation
conditions this steel can be worked up
into cars and the automobiles placed
In dealers' hands within fourteen days
after shipment is made. Thus by the
fifteenth of September the Fords have
received cash for cars containing this
entire steel consignment. They then
' have the use of the money until October 20.

MERCHANT PRINCE
THROUGH ADVERTISING
John Wanamaker has completed 60
years of service as a merchant. Wanamaker was the first big merchant to
discover the potentialities of regular,
systematic newspaper advertising. He
buys more newspaper advertising than
any other merchant of his class. It
would require police details to keep
him out of newspaper offices. And the
only reason under the suu why he likes
advertising ls that it increases business for his stores.

husband; "you may have made the
cake all alone, as you say, but who
helped you life lt out of the oven?"
MILLIONS OF CHINESE
NEVER EAT RICE
Most of us think that every Chinese
man, woman and child in China eats
rice every day. As a matter of fact
there are millions of Chinese living ln
Shensi, Shansi and Northwestern
China, where rice is not grown, who
have never seen or tasted rice. There
are millions of the rice producing sections who cannot afford to eat rice
regularly. With these qualifications
it may perhaps be said that rice Is the
staple article of diet of the Chinese
people, or, more correctly, of the people of Central and South China, though
strictly speaking there is reason to
believe that the sweet potato occupies
an even more general  place  ln  the
dietary of the people throughout all
sections of China than does rice. The
Yantze Valley is the great centre of
rice production. Rice straw is the
most common material for the manufacture of paper ln China. It also
serves as food and bedding for animals, as thatch for houses and as fertilizer. Rice wine, sam-shu, Is made
in enormous quantities ln China, although the people are not given to Intemperance.

Melt a few lumps of candle wax in

to cool n little nml then, before it has
set, dip the matches In. ono at a time.
Treat the heads and about halt of the
wooden part. Place the matches on

in water for many hours, and they
have ignited ns readily as those which
were perfectly dry. The only difference is that, in striking, It is needful
to do so a trifle more iirnily so as to
get through the thin film of wax surrounding the head. When once the
flame starts the match burns very
readily, owing to the wax which had
adhered to the wood. Any ordinary
matches can be treated in the manner

YOUR TEETH
VARIETIES OF PLATES
By REA PROCTOR McQEE, Editor of
"Oral Hygiene."
If you have lost very many teeth,
you must consider some method of
replacing them, because if you don't
you will only partially chew your food
and your digestive apparatus will suffer severely from overwork and your
general system must necessarily be
undernourished.
So commonsense dictates that when
you lose a tooth it must be replaced.
There are other good reasons why
teeth should be replaced but, just
now, the matter of plates is under
discussion.
In a jaw where there are some natural teeth remaining, the plate that
carries the missing teeth ls called a
'partial plate."
There are many methods of keeping
these partial plates In position, and
the methods are so extremely clever
that the feelings, appearance and
function of the normal teeth are almost restored.
The old idea of placing fixed bridges,
to restore every form of tooth that was
missing, is rapidly giving way to the
extensive use of the partial plate.
One of the great advantages of a
partial plate is the fact that it can be
removed and thoroughly cleaqed.
Now, cleanliness ls one of the greatest possible measures in the conservation of health aud anything that can
he cleansed can be made sanitary; but
if you have in your mouth an extensive lot of uncleanable apparatus lt
will be very difficult to maintain a
hygienic condition.
Always consider the possibility of
cleanliness when any new work is being doue iu the mouth. The partial
plates depend for their retention upon the teeth that are remaining ln the
mouth. They do not depend upon
suction as do the full plates, particularly the full upper.
To be satisfactory, the teeth upon
which the partial plate depends for
support must be very healthy.
You cannot hope to have either a
satisfactory or a healthful piece of
partial plate work in your mouth unless the teeth to which it Is anchored
are healthy and will remain so.
If you have to have a partial plate,
don't try to save a lot of hopeless
teeth to Interfere with it.

Those Who Go Through High
School Earn Largest Wages
—Startling Figures.
It is said that the two greatest
powers ln the. world today are money
and education. Those possessed of
higher education have a tremendous
advantage over their lesser Informed
brothers. Should a boy be sent to
high school is often a very serious
question, and very often the question'
Is decided by the boys themselves,
who can see what to them is big
money in* their flrst Job but cannot
see the much larger future if they can
pursue studies right through high
school and possibly university. Two
paths are open—the "Byway" of quick
returns for the boy who leaves school
at fourteen and begins earning wages,
and the "Highway of Education" for
the bov who goes through high school.
An investigator in New York city
compiled the following table from
many hundreds of cases:
Left School at Fourteen.
Age. Average Salary

24   20.00   1,196.00
25   31.00   1,612.00
These   ligiires   are    for    pre-war
standards. The difference may not be
so great at the present time but lt Is
dally becoming greater. Competition
for employment Is growing keener,
with the advantage in favor of the
better trained man.
The same Investigator makes this
statement: Every day spent in-school
pays the child nine dollars and two
cents. He advances this argument for
proof. Uneducated laborers earn on
the average $500 per year for 40 years,
a total of $20,000. High school graduates earn on the average $1,000 per
year for 40 years, a total of $40,000.
This education required 12 years of
school of 180 days each, a total of
2.160 days in school. If 2,160 days at
school add $20,000 to the income for
life, then each day addB $9.02.

WHY THE DELAY?
Early in July the City Council, dissatisfied with the
action of the Waterworks Company in charging the city
nearly $5110 hydrant tax, and the allegedly high prices
charged for water and electricity, passed a resolution In
favor of purchasing both the Waterworks Company and
also the Cumberland Electric Lighting Company, aud asking the two companies to state the price at which they
would sell.
A meeting was later held between tho Waterworks Co.
and the City Council, but nothing definite was settled beyond the company promising to hold another meeting of its
board ot directors and fixing u compromise charge for
hydrant  water.
At the last meeting of the City Council thc company
informed the council by letter that tlie directors were not
authorized to deal wilh the question of sale, hut the matter
would be laid before the shareholders at the annual meeting ln February, 1922. A similar reply was received from
the Cumberland Electric Lighting Company, Ltd. Mr. G.
W. Clinton Is managing-director of both companies.
Are the companies "stalling" In the matter? It Is absurd
to say that a question of price cannot be fixed for six
months. We believe thc council is acting In good faith In
its avowed intention of buying both companies out If the
price la favorable. Under the provisions of the agreement
between the Electric Lighting Company and the council,
the latter has the right to purchase the business ot the
company at any time. Thai being the case surely lt is
not unreasonable for the council to expect a price stated
hefore waiting six or eight months.
Whether the move is a wise one on the part of the city
fathers is a question yet to be decided. No facts or figures
have been divulged by which the public can judge as to
the merits of the proposition.
In these days of rapid mall service almost any part of
the English-speaking world can be reached In two or three
weeks. It is stated that the shareholders of Ihe Electric
Lighting Company number eight or nine, the majority of
them living In Cumberland. That being the case it would
seem that the long delay on the part of the directors re
quires some explanation.
A shareholder of the Waterworks Company informed
Tbe Islander that several of the aldermen would he miss
Ing from next year's council, implying that a movement is
on foot to oust from the council the aldermen favorable to
acquiring the companies' businesses. Evidence to sup
port this suggestion Is not lacking.
Are the companies delaying the matter intentionally?

OUR BOYS NEGLECTED
Nearly fifty thousand boys have been added to the
church iu the United States through one hoys' organization,
the Knights of King Arthur, which celebrated Its twenty-
eighth anniversary this spring. The two foundations of
the society are play in religion and religion ln play. The
ociety has 3500 chartered castles, 130,000 having taken
the vows. There is no preaching in the Knights ot King
Arthur; but religion, though unobtrusive, is integral. The
members think of themselves as Christian knights, living
a chivalrous life of fellowship and service., in their meetings the hoys gather about a round table, at the head of
which ls the "siege perilous," a vacant chair reserved for
the lad whose achievements win the universal approbation
of his fellows. The meeting involve handicraft in making
swords, shields, spears and other knightly equipment, all
sorts of games and athletics, and the use of many noble
words and ideals, which the boys carry home into their
daily life. The third degref of knighthood is conferred
according to tlie ancient customs but only upon boys who
have become church members.
lt is interesting to know that the Knights of King
\rthur have never paid a salary and do not ask as public
for funds.
The Knights of King Arthur should be a splendid suggestion tor Cumberland boys. Nothing Is being done for
[he hoys of this district beyond the stnnll private" classes.
The others are left to form into little "gangs," with no
responsible leader—thc result of which Is that many of
them develop into little "toughs" unwillingly and unconsciously. The remark is frequently heard that the boys
of this town are particularly had and vicious. This is not
really so—the average Cumberland Is as good as one can
find nnywhere. but he lacks leadership. The deplorable
condition today Is not the fault of the boy, but of the
parent and those who professedly have the welfare of
hoys at heart—and no nothing for their welfare.
If tl\e City Council and School Board were to spend a
few hundred dollars in playground equipment to be erected
at the school grounds and "park" they would he doing a
good service.
The weather bureau says next week will be generally

Wednesday evening Ihe Union Bay
ball team came up for a game against
the league leaders. This team had
overwhelmed the ball-tossers from the
valley last week by the big score of
14 to 1, and there was a good turn
out of fans to see whnt they could accomplish against the Cumberland
boys. They put up a good brand of
ball, but the superiority of the home
team was too great, the final score being 10 to 2 "ln favor the home boys.
Only five Innings were played and
the dim light interfered with the last
part of the game.
Boyd pitched ln fine form for Cumberland, not allowing the visitors a
single hit. Bailo pitched for Union
Bay ln the first part of the game and
Dangerfleld relieved him, both men
putting over good deliveries, but the
support at times left much to be desired.

Editor Islander.—I see by the Game
Regulations for this district that
hunters will be allowed to kill three
bucks only this season. No doubt
those who framed this law did so
with the Intention of protecting the
deer, but I am convinced this will not
he the case.   I have done considerable
hunting on the Island and my experi- 	
ence leads me to believe that there i =1
will  be a greater  loss  through   thlslH
through   this   new    regulation    than
formerly.
My reasons for this opinion are:
This Island is not a prairie; it's full __
of underbrush and thickets; the tall gg
timbers are thick and rather dark ln j =£
most places, especially in the hunt-! =
ing season when it's foggy and rain-' §|§
ing. I have shot many a deer in I =*=
thickets of which I have not seen i j§=
their heads nt all when I fired. As a ==
rule the hunter is so close to them . SE
that he hns to shoot quick If he wants S
to get the animal. If the deer is run- j gj§
ning from the hunter In a thicket Its 15=
head is down and the cannot distill-' **=
guish Its sex. If they arc In the tall =
timbers when It's dark the hunter t=
cannot distinguish the horns. §§
SO I am sure that most hunters will j=
shoot first and investigate afterwards,: —
with the consequence that the does i f=
which nre shot will he left lying, aig
waste of meat and game, because tlie —
hunter dare not take the risk of bring- E
ing tlie carcase out. I've always found j=§
thnt Mr. Buck is the hardest to get of =
the two. s=
I know that these mistakes will be IS
made, because there nre hunters who ! S3
shoot men for deer, let alone a doe £3
for a buck. Egg

A tale of .iny aud tears for feeling
hearts.
The sound of mask naked and
kindled by a master's spell.
Vibrant with the melody of life and
lore.
A story that thrums the heartstrings
—a poem of life perfect as a star.
Radiant with lore divine—a treasure
trove of human emotions.
A story sweetened hy tears and
laughter—sweet and wholesome as a
summer's lephyr.
An old song set to the music of the
soul—a photoplay of the song of life.
The answer to critcls who lament
the artificiality of motion pictures ls
"Humoresque." This photoplay is
real life faithfully portrayed. It has
an Intense appeal to the heart that ls
equalled by few works of literature
and fewer stage productions.
"Humoresque" Is a Fannie Hurst
story, written with all of her deep
knowledge of Human beings of the ordinary mould. The novel has been
transformed with rare sympathy and
understanding to the screen. Starting
with the boyhood of a youngster In
New York's Chetto, born with two
masterful passions in his breast-
love for his mother and love for music
—the photoplay shows the child later
as a youthful genius of the violin entertaining royalty and giving a huge
concert in New York for his own
people. Then comes the great sorrow
that seems to forbid him ever playing a violin again. But in a wonderful manner the clouds are rolled by,
and be and his faithful mother are
made happy.
You cannot appreciate the appeal
to the heart that this simple story
makes until you have seen lt. Its
effect upon an' audience ls profound.
"Humoresque," one of the greatest
pictures ever screened, will be shown
at the Ilo-Ilo Theatre on Saturday
night. i

THE COURTENAY LAUNDRY
Holding tbat If the Soldier Settlement Board insisted on the payment
of the first Instalment on stock and
farms this year by the 160 men who
bought land under Dominion Government auspices in the valley, that 80
per cent, of the men would be obliged
to leave, the Courtenay-Comox Board
of Trade strongly endorsed the spirit
ot a resolution passed by a meeting of
ex-service men asking for an extension ot time.
A meting was held last Friday of
soldier settlers and decided to send
a letter and resolution to Premier
Melghen.
The resolution referred to asked
that the Soldiers Settlers Act be
amended so that no settlers should
be liable for any payments for five
years.
A long discussion took place from
which suggestions were made that
will be embodied ln the resolution the
Board ot Trade is going to forward
to every Board of trade In B. C. for
their endorsatlon.
One of these amendments will suggest that unless a settler does a certain amount of improvements on tbe
land per year he should not be given
the further advantage of the loan;
another pointing out that If men who
cannot meet the payments are required to get off their farms they will
only swell the volume of unemployment ln the cities:
That a resolution should be drawn
up and sent on these lines was moved
by Mr. A. Cleland and seconded by Mr.
Anderton. The task of drawing up
this resolution was left to Messrs.
Theed Pearse, Anderton, Sills, Shep-
person, Craig and McPhee.

Humoresque
A  PHOTOPLAY  featuring
Alma Rubens
.The sordid clatter of the New York Ghetto. A little lad there, hugging an old violin. A mother, her soul aflame, watching, giving, dreaming,
as the hard years pass.   A radiant girl, waiting.
At last, Fame! Wealth! The applause of countless, crowding thousands
for "the master of them all." One night, a gala free concert to his own
of the great East Side. "Humoresque!" they cried. And he played it in
farewell—played it with breaking heart,—then smiling, flung liis career
and his wondrous art away. ^
Some called him "Fool!" Not all. You'll know why when you see tlie end.
i
TKJSp" The song in a mother's heart made visible; the dream ^^SjAfll
UCS? of a mother's life come true... A melody of love and ^rffcilJ
tears and laughter, played silently on the screen. Fannie Hurst's great
story of a lad with the wondrous gift of music; of a girl and a mother who
loved him. More pathos than "The Music Master," more fun than
"Potash and Perlmuttcr."-

READ WHAT THE MAN WHO
HAS CHARGE OF THIS SALE HAS
TO TELL YOU:
"People of Cumberland and of this
district, it is my vocation in life to
put on sales for merchants. One of
the hardest things for a man in my
line of work is to get a merchant to
put on a REAL SALE, and make
prices that will move merchandise.
When I contracted with Mr. Partridge
he told me he would go the limit—
and he sure is going the limit. I'll
bet my last dollar that the people of
this community will take advantage
of this opportunity. We are going
to make it worth your while to attend
this sale. If you do not come, then
please never again talk about high
prices and merchants holding up the
public. This is plain talk and I can
back up every word of it if you will
come in and see the prices we are
making on this high-class merchandise.
You men who are toiling under the
ground bringing out the precious
fuel that keeps the home-fires burning; you men who till the soil to _
bring forth the things we need to keep body and soul together; you fathers and mothers—here is your chance. Grab it! m
For the next twenty days Mr. Partridge is disregarding all profits and giving you a chance to buy merchandise as cheap H
as you could back in 1913 and 1914.   Be on the square with yourselves and come. *=

Mr. S. Hazzeldine Warren, P. G. R.
of London, bas just reported the discovery of a vast prehistoric stone axe
factory which flourished on the slopes
of Peniuaenniawr Peak, in Carnarvonshire, Wales, about 5000 years ago.
The discovery, which was made by
Mr. and Mrs. Warren while on a walking trip through Wales, has caused
considerable excitement in scientific
circles here, and a party will leave
London shortly to explore the site.
The factory covers hundreds of
acres, and Mr. Warren flrst began to
study the hillside wben he observed
the thousands of chipped flints lying
abont the ground. On Investigation
he found these had been broken and
fashioned by human hands. Many
axes were finished, but bad been
broken by a last blow of the chipper,
and then discarded. He was able to
put together some thirty specimens of
complete axes, chipped out of the flint
and ready to be bound by a throng to
the wooden handle.
"We call these broken axes 'our
prehistoric d m,'" said Mr. Warren, "for that is the word that must
have best expressed tbe feelings of the
primitive men when after hours of
chipping the axe was ruined by a
faulty last stroke."
POISON GAS PISTOLS
This little instrument for protection
of the law-abiding citizen has been inspired by the war. It has the advantage of putting an adversary hors do
combat immediately, but without any
evil effects of any kind. Thc gun contains liquid poisonous gas which, if it
strikes a bandit, puts him to sleep at
once. Again, if it strikes the bandit
in the eyes it blinds hlm for severul
days. The handle of the gun contains
the lisiuod poison which is compressed
with the aid of a bicycle pump at thc
lower end of (he handle. All one has
to do is to point the gun at the target
at a distance of not more thau ten feet
and press the trigger, which releases
a thin stream which is accurate at
that range. The liquid, emitting poisonous gases, disarms thc bandit.
INTEREST  IX   TREE  PLANTING
In Eastern Canada provincial and
municipal authorities are engaging In
tho work of tree planting both for
limber production and to hold sands
from drifting over good land. In
Western Canada dozens of cities and
towns are planting trees along streets
and ia parks, while thousunds ot
farmers are setting out shelter-belts
and wind-breaks. This increased Interest augurs well for forest protection, because people who value trees
enough to plant them are not going to
allow growing forests to be burned
up without demanding a reason.
THE WORLD HAS NEED OF
EVERY TREE
The world has need of all the things
Of beauty that the summer brings—
Petals and perfumes, gauze and wings.
The planet has so much of snows
The world haB need of every rose
Wherever any traveller goes.
There are such stones the weary mass
Ot men in dally journey pass,
Tbe world has need of all its grass.
There ls such gray ln every scene
Such shadows sunny hills between,
The world has need of all Us green.
So much of drab there is to set,
Drab bills and drab humanity,
The world has need of every tree.
-Douglas   Malloch,   the   lumberman
poet.
A TAILOR IN TROUBLE
i There was a tailor In Durham, Eng.,
who occasionally Indulged In what Is
called a "paralytic drunk." On these
occasions he relapsed into sleep, from
which no power on earth could wake
him.
Some colliers found him ln this
state on the side of the road one day,
and, bent on tun, took him with them
down into the mine.
After many hours he awoke in the
darkness and gazed at the mysterious
dim lights and moving figures In the
distance; but by arrangement no one
took the slightest notice of him.
"What place Is this?" he asked some
one who came near enough to be
spoken to.
"This is the abode of Satan!" was
the sepulchral reply.
"How long have you been here?"
asked the tailor.
"Five years," said the collier.
The tailor, putting his hand In his
pocket, said, "Then you know your
way about. Get me a pint of beer."
