boxes to good advantage. The German retreat was so hasty they
had not time to destroy them.

SAD ACCIDENT.
A sad accident oecured on
Thursday afternoon on Main
Street, Cumberland, when Charlie Sing Chong was driving his
Ford car to Chinatown, and just
opposite the residence of Mr.
Oliver their three year old child,
Eric Norman Oliver, it appears,
was in the middle of the road.
Although Charlie Sing Chong
went over the left embankment
to the extent of almost capsizing
his car in an effort to get out' of
the way of the child, the unfortunate accident oecured causing
the death of tho boy. The coroner held an inquest on Friday
evening when the jury returned
a verdict of accidental death exonerating Charlie Sing Chong
from all blame. The funeral of
Eric Norman Oliver took place
today to the Cumberland Cemetery with Rev. Archdeacon Coll-
inson officiating. The sympathy
of the community is extended to
Mr. and Mrs. Oliver.
A special meeting of the Ladies' Auxiliary of the Cumberland
General Hospital will be held at
the residence of Mrs. John Bruce
at 7.30 p.m., on Tuesday, June
18th. Vory important business
on hand and all members are requested to attend. The receipts
for hospital tag day held on Saturday, June 8th, were: Union
Bay, $35; Bevan, $31,20; Chinatown and Japanese Town, $57.40
and around town will total $333
and there is still a little more to
come in from Union Bay.
BRITISH WOMEN WORKING ON THE IRON CAVALRY
British women have been pictured at work in practically every industry that will help to win the war. This photograph just received
in this country is the first one t.o show that tne women are even now
engaged in the construction of the wonderful British tank which
accomplished such wonders in demoralizing the Huns.
MEN k MONTH
Boston, June 12.—"The flow
of troops from this country to
Europe is at the rate of 250,000
a month, and nothing can stop
it, certainly not the Kaiser with
his U boats," declared Lieut-
General Thomas Bridges, British
High Commissioner to the United States et a dinner tendered
nim here lust night by a number
of prominent British and Canadian residents.
"I have it on the best authority," he continued, "that General
Foch, with whom I am intimately acquainted, is very certain he
has the situation well in hand
and can now hold the Germans.
"We have to-day 200,000
American troops brigaded with
British and French soldiers and
this intimate association will
have a far-reaching effect on the
future of the nations."
London, June 12.—As an outcome of recent conferences the
Japanese Government is preparing a declaring its attitude toward Russia, according to a
Tientsin dispatch to the Exchange Telegraph Company.
AUSTRIAN SHIP SUNK
Venice, June 11, via Rome,
June 12.—One Austrian dreadnought was destroyed and a second one damaged in the torpedo
attack made by Italian torpedo
boats upon an Austrian naval
division near the Dalmatian Islands on Monday, it was officially
reported to-night in a communication by the Chief of Staff of
the Italian army.
ALLEGED   U-BOAT   SPY IN
CUSTODY.
Philadelphia, June 12.—A man
employed as a bartender in Atlantic City is being held by the
naval authorities here in the belief that he is a member of a
band of German spies, which
has been sought for a week, because of the impression that they
were signalling U-boats at sea.
He was arrested at Atlantic City
and brought to this city. He is
accused of swinging a curtain
back and forth at a window in
fro.itof lighted gas jets. The
window overlooked the shoals at
Brigantine to the open Atlantic.
EXPECTS 2000 TO REGISTER.
Vancouver, June 12.—Up to
yesterday 1,616 young men between the ages of nineteen and
twenty-two years had registered
with R. S, Lennie, Regirtrar under the Military Service Act in
British Columbia. Mr. Lennie
stated that it was expected that
some 2,000 young men of the
prescribed age would register in
Uritish Columbia, and he expects this number to be reached
by the end of next week.
OVER FIFTY THOUSAND OF
NINETEEN CLASS.
Ottawa, June 12.—The calling
to the colors of the nineteen-
year-old men throughout Canada
is delayed. When the proclamation requiring these men to register was published, it was intimated that they would not be
required actually to report for
duty before July. It is now considered improbable that many, if
any, of the men will be summoned before September or October.
Up to the present 5J.883 men
nineteen years old have registered for military service. Of these,
it is estimated, seventy-three per
cent probably will rank in Medical Categoi y A, as fit for general
service overseas.
FINANCIAL STATEMENT OF
24th MAY SPORTS.
To the Chairman, Officers, Committeemen and Subscribers of
the 1918 Victoria Day Celebration Fund, Cumberland, B. C.
Gentlemen:—I beg to submit
herewith a final Balance sheet
of the above fund, showing in
detail the amounts collected by
each collector, and other donations and sources of revenue
.tnd the disbursements for flags,
fixing of grounds, prizes, free
shew, etc., and a final balance of
$175.00, which is now deposited
in the names of W. W. Willard
and the City Clerk, in trust for
the officers duly elected at a regular public meeting for the celebration of 1919 Vietoi ia Day.
I. may say the last meeting was
tailed for June 3rd., vide local
press, after due instructions
liora the president, Mayor Harrison, and was attended by myself only, hence the reason of
taking the unusual course of issuing an uncertified balance
sheet. All vouchers, bills, etc.,
are now in the hands of the
treasurer, receipted, and can be
inspected by any meeting which
is called for the purpose.
Before closing I wish, on behalf of those who didn't attend
the meeting, to offer a hearty
vote of thanks to all who so kindly assisted to make the sports a
real success and day of joy for
the children, particularly Mrs.
Clinton and Mr. Drader for handling the children's parade so well.
Believe me, gentlemen, Your
obedient servant, T. MORDY.

RED CROSS VIGNETTES.
What a delightful thing it
would be if everyone who has
given money or some more personal gift to the relief work of
the Red Cross, could go through
the hospitals and camps of France
with one of the faithful agents
who distribute the invaluable
supplies! He would see many
sights that would bring tears to
his eyes—tears of pity, and tears
of gladness too; he would feel as
he cannot now—unless he is a
person of extraordinary imagination—the full beauty and tenderness of the work this great society carries on; and he would
return to his home determined
to give generously more this year
than he has ever given before
for carrying on and extending
the service that the Red Cross
offers to the unfortunate and
the suffering. Since our readers
cannot do that, they will be glad
to read a few brief episodes in
the experience of a Red Cross
agent in France; they are taken
from an article in the Yale Review by Mr. Howard Copeland:
There is a new-fangled theory
these last few years about intra-
atomic energy-unsuspected forces
inside the dull lead of the bullet
that, if released, would incredibly surpass the paltry force of
its speeding flight. Well, something like that emanates from
the interior of these surprise
bags that the women of America
have sent to the wounded soldiers
of France more than even the
kindest hearts that sent them
ever put into them! 1 recall a
dying man in a hospital of the
15th Region a few weeks ago.
He just stroked the little hag all
day long aa it lay»on tlie covers
of his bed for three dajs before
his death, taking out all the little
objects and putting them back
agai i, one by one, over and over.
Tile Ian words he spoke were,
'Tl laut eci'ire a cette dame,, (1
must write to the lady,) and he
held the card she had written
ch»e to his cheek as If whispering words of lovo to this person,
the   first,   perhaps,   who    had
.a tn hit ce
i
lorll ol i rai ce, w ir. n he
went to ihe trenches and his
wife an«l daughter Were deported
into slavery.
Many a shirt or a dollar's
worth ol' woolen sweater has
saved a human life. 1 remember
i eadinR mj motor car across
country against a cold, sleety
rain one bitter day last winter
and meeting a young soldier who
accepted the pioll'eied seat bj
my side. He had just come from
the hospital, wheiehe had been
sent in the heat tf the preceding
summer, and he had been trudging now through the snow with
evidently the same clothes he
had worn then. He was an electric bellhanger from the part of
France invaded. He had been
invalided out of military service,
and had asked that the railway
ticket always given in such cases should be made out for a
town just behind us, because lie
knew of an old employer there.
But the establishment, like many
others, had been closed since the
beginning of the war, and it was
on a very faint hope that he was
making his way to the next town
in search of needed employment.
His poor body, long enfeebled by
illness and the close air of hospital wards, was shaking so that
he could hardly speak. Now, in
future years, when ^11 this horrible war shall have come to be
to that once young musketeer
only a blurred retrospect, if he
has a proper sense of proportion
there will emerge from it the
memory of a shirt, a sweater and
a few other woolen garments,
which will assume monumental
proportions. For if he has survived that day, I am sure it was
those humble garments that
saved his life.
I recall a French town with
ample parks and shade trees by
a stream where for some reason
there had been an obstacle to the
arrival of shoes for the men in
hospital, and it was strictly forbidden that those not p"operly
shod should go out of the building. Here were scores of men
who had had their shoes cut off
by the surgeon's knife before
being brought to the hospital on
strechers, now grown strong and
quite to walk about, but condemned for lack of shoes to pass
the long summer afternoons in
the sultry hospital wards. Fortunate ones with enough money
bought themselves some kind of
footwear sufficient to pass the
sentry. I remember a nice old
priest serving as a nurse who received me in his stockened feet,
and explained that he had lent
his shoes to one of the men so
that he could tro out for the first
time to the shade by the river,
I should have so much liked to
furnish shoes to all those poor,
imprisoned men, but there were
none among the wares I had
with me; and as available funds
for buying them were not so ample that year as now, I' had to
pass on, leaving the men patient
and uncomplaining. But, as I
say, it is ever some little crevice
or chink left in the path of the
great steam roller of a national
administration that presents opportunity for our services.
Our task of distributing Red
Cross wares to the little village
hospitals is a very easy one.     It

is just: "Bon soir, Monsieur le
Cure! Here are some warm
woolens for your wounded men
to put on when they are well
enough to be about. Here are
some bandages, all sealed in
these sterilized boxes.  No. there
is nothing at all to pay; thousands of women have been knitting them for you over in America, thousands of miles away.
No, there no thanks due to us
from you. It's all the other way
round; it's we who thank you

for all the work you have been
doing for us here in France these
three years and more.
And the old cure, or the rustic village mayor, looking bewildered as the beautiful flannels,
bed linen and bandages roll out
from the automobile, crosses
himself piously and stares at me
in a kind of speechless awe'as if
I were a messenger straight out
of the sky. Blue-clad men in
bandages hobble out of the
kitchen, their potato paring or
their dish-washing still in evidence; the whole establishment,
like one large, friendly family,
begin to press my hand, and I
am off across country toward
another hospital twenty miles
before the wonderful wares have

every one of the little benevoles
hospitals assures a gilt-edged investment for the American dollar, a dollar that in these cases
not only speeds not only to its

but, like those "explosive bullets" we hear about, suddenly
engenders an unsuspected and
increased force when lodged in
the bosom of the target.

BOYS'   SUIT
SPECIALISTS
We ask you to put our claim to the test, as we feel sure we can
fit most of the boys in town with a suit they will justly be proud in.
Coppley Noyes & Randall, of Hamilton, one of the best Houses in
Canada for "Good Goods" has just delivered our second shipment of
the swellest range of " Boys' Nifty Suits " it has ever been our
pleasure to open, hence our confidence in our claim.
This shipment contains about one thousand dollars' worth of
Bpys' Special Suits, and every suit has an individuality all to itself
for the "little man" who will wear it, and which will make him like
his Dad.
For Big Boys we have a choice of suits that will leave nothing
to be desired ; the cloths are excellent, the style up the minute, and
you will find the price moderate compared with the quality. The
Home of Boys' Clothes! Yes, that is what we are after, and which
we intend to be known in the future, and, if the goods mean anything, we are there already.
We invite every boy in town to come in and see our " New
Line and get acquainted, as he is sure to come in the end—if he
wants smart up-to-date Clothes.
SPECIAL   LINES
Ladies' House Dresses
We have a smart showing of New Lines in House Dresses. We
think it is the best assortment we have been able to get for some
time and would ask your inspection.
White Shoes
We have a full line of White Shoes for ladies, girls, boys and
children, and have had constantly to reorder some sizes. When
in need of shoes for summer, we ask your inspection of THE
KAUFMAN BRAND, which we consider one of the best on the
market today. Should we be out of your size, we can get in four
days.
Trunks and Suitcases
Our stock of these is very complete, with such an assortment
that you will have no difficulty in making a good choice.
