LADYS.lilTH TO HAVE PICNIC ON ]
AUGUST 84th
The Ladysmith Chronicle, of Saturday, Aug. 3rd, says:—
A few weeks ago the employees of
the Canadian Collieries at Cumberland held au outing which was regarded by all who attended it as one
of the great events of the year, but
the Extension employees ot the same
company have determined to eclipse
the efforts of thoir fellow workers at
Cumberland, and with that object in
view held a meeting on Sunday last
to make all preliminary arrangements
for the forthcoming event which will
take place on Saturday, Aug., 24th.,
at the local agricultural grounds.
Committees were appointed to look
after the different events, and Mr. A.
P. Glen was appointed secretary, and
Mr. William Anderson was selected to
officiate as treasurer.
One of the important committees
will have charge of the field, and this
committee is already busy outlining
the duties of their ollice. It was decided at the meeting to throw the
Hold open to all comers, but thepar-
tldpnuts in all leading events will be
men working at the mines. It is
probable that this rule, however, will
not apply to the sports of the younger boys and girls.
It was decided to extend permission
to the Red Cross Society to place boxes at the gates for contributions, and
no doubt the local patriotic organization will reap a rich harvest from this
source.
Arrangements are being made for
transportation of the employees of
the company and their families from
South Wellington, and it is expected
hundreds from the neighboring town
will take advantage of this opportunity for a day's outing in Ladysmith.
In order that there will be no shortage of financial assistance to carry
the affair to a successful issue the
company has promised to contribute
generously to the fund for that purpose, and the, employees of the company will also make a liberal donation with the same object ln view.
In future Issues of tile Chronicle
will be given an outline of the preparations that are being made to make
this one of the greatest celebrations
of the kind ever held on Vancouver Island.

April 20 last, «
.   Or have deserted.
Or absented themselves without leave
from our Canadian Expeditionary Force,
And it is represented that the very serious
and unfortunate situation in which these men
find themselves is due in many cases to the
fact that, notwithstanding the information and

obligation, or have been misled by the advice
of ill-disposed, disloyal or seditious persons.
AND WHEREAS we desire, if possible, to
avoid the infliction of the heavy penalties which
the law imposes for the offences of which these
soldiers have thus been guilty, and to afford
them an opportunity within a limited time to
report and make their services available in Our
Canadian Expeditionary Force as is by law
their bounden duty, and as i9 necessary for the
defence of Our Dominion of Canada.

oi Our powers, and of Our good Will and
pleasure in that behalf, do hereby proclaim and
declare and cause to be published and made
known THAT THE PENALTIES OF THE

risour and severity of the law, SUBJECT TO
THE JUDGMENT OK OUR COURTS
MARTIAL WHICH WILL BE CONVENED TO TRY SUCH CASES or other
competent tribunals: and also that those who
employ, harbour, conceal ior assist such men
will be held strktly accountable as offenders
and subject to the pains, penalties and forfeitures in that behalf by law provided for theii>
said offence.
Provided however that nothing contained
in this Our Proclamation iii intended to release
the men aforesaid from their obligation to
report for duty as soon as possible or to grant
them immunity from arrest or detention in the
meantime for the purpose of compelling them
to perform their military duty; Our intention
being merely to forego or remit the penalties
heretofore incurred for failure to report,
absence without leave or desertion incurred by

given the H. T. Peterson Construc-

jottages from Bevan to Cumberland.
A branch line of the railroad has been
laid into the streets of Bevan and a
force of men are now engaged in cutting the houses into two or three sections, as the case may be, and loading
them on to flat cars to be removed Into Cumberland. Similar work Is being done at this end . A spur line

of the Wellington Colliery Railway
has been laid Into the streets adjoining tbe City of Cumberland and upon
iheir arrival the sections will be removed and each house will be erected on a full sized town lot 60x120,
which will give the occupant sufficient garden space to grow bis own
vegetables. While the houses are being removed there will be ten or fifteen men engaged at the Bevan end,
and an equal number on the townsite
adjoining the City, and it is expected
tbe houses will be divided into sections, removed and erected, at tbe
rate of two a mouth. The entire
work is under tbe direction and supervision of W. A. Owen, Construction Engineer of the Canadian Collieries, Dunsmuir , Ltd., and when
completed it will be no small addition
and will increase the residential portion of this city and vicinity to tbe
extent ot some 45 homes. The employees are highly elated to know that

"I guess you havn't got any house

The speaker was an unsentimental soldier. He hud been gazing at
the venerable pile of Edinburgh Castle from the window of the Y. M. C.
A. on Princess street, where he was
spending a brief furlough.
lie was one of a party of sixty Canadians who had journeyed north to
have a glimpse of the country of
their'forbears. Captain Finglaud, Ca
nadian Y. M. C. A. officer In Edinburgh, had met them at tlie station
and distributed them amongst the
Overseas Club, the Y. M, C. A., and
creditable lodgings.
A feature of the week for the large
number of the Canadians touring
Scotland on leave is tlie Y. M. C. A.,
Hospitality league, an organization
of hostesses throughout the country
who open tlieir doors to the men overseas. Food difficulties and the servant problem have combined to curtail somewhat tlie' generosity of the
League hitherto, but these problems
having abated to a certain extent, an
ever-increasing number of soldiers
are being entertained. Men direct
from the frunt prize above everything
else this opportunity of testing once
more the joys of tlie domestic circle,
of sharing the solace of the pipe oi
peace and settling down in a comfy
seat by tlie window or fireside.
Nearly fifty per cent of the men going on leave visit   Scotland and Captain Finglaud has linked up with   all

1 Ol I.IHY DISEASES RESPONSIBLE
FOR l!i<.    NATIONAL LOSS
At least fifty per cent ol' the chicle-
on.;, young ducks and turkeys ant
ten per cent of the adult birds, dit
each year from diseases, many o:
which are preventable. This is ai
annual national loss of probably mil
lions of dollars that should bo avoid
od io a large extent.
War conditions make it impera
tive that farmers and poulirynien a
far as possible should stop this en
ormous lealt, To dothis every breed
er should puy strict attention to tin
general condition of his flock.. Whei
anything unusual Is noted in a fowl
it is advisable to place tho affectet
Individual In separate quarters. It
within a short lime recovery doos no:
tako place, it is unwise to destroy tin
fowl without lirst ascertaining the
cause of tlio disorder. The prevalence of disease is more often tin
cause of failure than tlie lack of practical knowledge and tlie extreme im
portance of keeping tho quarter:
clean; isolation of all ailing fowl.
and immediate action in regard tc
finding out the cause cannot bo toe
strongly impressed upon tbe poultry-
man.
When trouble occurs, forward to
the Biological Laboratory, Central
Experimental farm, Ottawa, Ont., a
live lint sick fowl, or, in the absence
of such, a dead bird. In the Interval
disoni'cet the quarters, runs, drinking
fountains and feed dishes, to check
tho spread of any Infectious disease.
Dlsenfect the poultry houses by
spraying the interior with a lime-
wash solution (50 pounds stone lime,
slacked in a barrel of watcrplus one
gallon of a   good   commercial di en-
fectant.l Fill cracks and crevices to
destroy mites, lice, etc. If a smaller
amount is required, it may be prepared by addingstwo and half pounds
of lime to a pail of water, plus half
a teacupful of disenfectant.
Keep a crop growing in -some part
of the yards and alternate poultry and
crops. If the runs are small, cover
with a coating of air-slacked lime and
dig up. If the runs are too large to
dig, plow and cultivate before sowing. Rape is a good crop for this pur
pose.   Rear all chicks on fresh soil.
Although these precautions may appear unnecessary, it is the only way
of combatting many disease conditions affecting poultry, which, if left
to themselves will undoubtedly be
come very costly ln the long run.
A LAND WITH THE CHARM OF
ROMANCE.
The Peace River District has been
for many years the subject of much
Interest and speculation. Alluring
tales from the adventurous pioneers,
of its wonderful resources, charming
climate, and alluring scenery, have
long since lent to the district that
charm of romance which distance
and uncertainty blended with glowing
promises. Now, however, the land
so long famed by legend and mystery
Is being proved a reality, modern
transportation having, so to speak,
brought It to our very doors. A Jour
ney from Edmonton to the town of
Peace River, for instance, which live
yers ago consumed nearly two weeks
of toil and hardship, may now be
made in less than twenty-four hours,
in comfort at all times of the year,
trains to this latest settlers' mecca,
which Is nearly 1,000 miles north of
the international boundary line, carrying both sleeping and dining car accommodation.
Tlie Department of the Interior, thr
ough Its Natural Resources Intelligence Branch has prepared and Is distributing a new' illustrated report on
the district, based 'on investigations
made by an official of that branch
during the season of 1917. The publication contains valuable information with regard to the soil, agriculture, minerals, game, water powers,
transportation and education. A map
of the district showing general topography also accompanies the report.
The recent reservation in the interests of soldier settlement of available Dominion lands has also necessitated the preparation of a map which
would Bhow the area of Northern Alberta that has been reserved for such
purposes. This publication is now a-
vailuble for distribution, and should
prove of considerable value to the returned soldier who Is considering the
advisability of settlement ln the Peace
River country, likewise to the prospective homesteader, as It shows the
area within which homesteads maybe
-eeured, also the total number of
iuarter-sections that are still availa-
ule in each township within reasoua-
,le distance of a railway. A copy of
-lie report or map or both, may be pro
ured free* of charge upon application

liranch of the Department of the In-
erior, Ottawa.

THE   RESPONSIBLITY   OF   MAN.
It is starting on a false principle
0 suppose that a man can escape
.'rom his own deed. As soon as he
has committed it he has given it an
existence, an individuality, which he
lan never destroy, It becomes independent of hlm, and goes Into the
world, to deal It's influence In wld-
jnlng circles far beyond his view.
If you let trouble sit upon your soul
like a hen upon her nest, you may
expect the hutching of a largo brood.

A MAN ON A BICYCLE  18 WORTH
..TWO ON FOOT.
The pass-word of tbe time Is "speed
up." Every one of us in these days
should as nearly as possible do the
work of two.
-Workmen can beat tbe whistle by
riding a bicycle and be ln better shape
to do a good day's work.
Merchants and business men will
be ln better shape after a brisk ride
on a bicycle than after riding ln a
stuffy car or reclining In a motor car.
Boys and girls need never be late
for school when riding a bicycle, and
will be ready to get through their
studies with less trouble. After
school or in vacation lt Is wonderful
how many errands can quickly be
done on a bicycle, and how much fun
can be crowded Into the times between.
Ladles will And that a little spin
once in a while on a bicycle Is not
time wasted, since work can be done
much easier and quicker after such
a refreshing change from household
or social duties. For riding to business, making informal calls, etc.,
there Is really nothing to equal a good
bicycle.
For delivering small parcels quickly, a carrier on a bicycle has every-
and when service Is given by bicycle
delivery lt Is economical as well as
quick and satisfactory.
Collectors can get around so quickly on a bicycle that no creditor can
escape them, unless he too rides a bicycle; even then one can give him a
great run.
Doctors, even when they own more
than one motor car, find there are
times when grabbing a bicycle with
one hand and their hat with the other, gets them there quicker than any
other method.
Ministers are riding bicycles ln ever increasing numbers and find that
It is just the thing for making a
great number of calls, many of them
away from a street car line, very
quickly and easily, while at the same
time obtaining the outdoor exercise
which is so necessary to keep one In
tbe best physical and mental condition. .
The war has taught us many things
not the least of which Is the value of
time-Having and exercise.
Perhaps no one has helped more
toward both these things tban the bicycle.

diminishes as It Is selfishly grasped.

the person of Pauline Frederick, in
a live reel Paramount lilm. On Tuesday une of the Regal Feature films

will be shown. The latter part of
the week ConBtance Talmage will be
seen in "Gliosis of Yesterday," and
Mary Garden in "Thais", a beautiful
film, which is described elsewhere in
these items.
Many of the latest and best films
have been booked for the fall season
at Ilo Ilo. and they will all be shown
to the best advantage by the new projection light which has been Installed
ut considerable expense in order that
Cumberland may he as up-to-date in
lite moving picture line as are all big
cities.
Watch for "The Slacker" a special production of the Metro Company, to be shown here in the near
future. It is a wonderful production,   featuring   Emily   Stevens..
» Mary Garden, probably the most
famous woman in the world, will be
seen at Ilo Ilo Theatre next week in
"Thais," a Goldwyn photoplay from
the sensational novel by the great
French writer, Anatole France, that
was the basis of the Opera in which
she made her debut in America as a
prima donna. "Thais" also marks
the lirst apearance of Mp-iss Garden in
motion  pictures.
Throughout the operetic career of
the great diva she has been noted almost as much for her remarkable acting ability as for her remarkable
voice; so her advent on the screen i:
far more than just the eexploiting of
a famous woman.
She has long contemplated an excursion into motion pictures, although she has repeatedly turned down
encouraging offers made her by various producing concerns. During the
past three years her activities have
been many, virtually all of her time
uot devoted to the regular opera season being given to the wounded soldiers on the western front in France.
She now wears the Red Cross of Siberia and the Wreath of Public Devotion ol! France for the work she lias
done in the fighting zone. There is
no single figure that is of moro importance in the artistic capitals of
the world than Mary Garden.
"Thais" tells tlie story of a beauty
of ancient Alexandria who is notorious for her many love affairs. A
wealthy young man named Paphnu-
tius is attracted by Thais, but leaving
her home one evening is set upon by
a jealous rival whom he slays in self-
defense. Having lately become aeon
vert to Christianity from his pagan
belief, he knows that murder is a
crime against Heaven, and in his remorse he becomes a monk and goes
far out on the desert to live in expiation of his sin.
While he becomes known throughout the world for his sanctity, Thais
becomes the very queen of riotous living. Then Paphnutius conceives the
idea that it would give the cause of
Christianity great impetus if he could
convert Thais, so he goes to her home
dressed in rich garments over his
monks robe and notifies her of his intention. At first she is amused, and
then frightened as he follows her everywhere. And at last she yields to
him, gives away or destroys all her
worldly possessions , and follows him
off into the desert, where she becomes
a nun.
Flushed with his victory over sin,
Paphnutius returns to his holy brothers. Hut despite his high resolves
he has fallen desperately In love with

The conclusion ot the story is thrilling In the extreme, and affords Miss
Garden one of the best acting opportunities of her career.
A man after coming out of a train
was summoned for being druul: and
disorderly. "When he was brought Into court, he was asked why he was
drunk. He said It was on account of
bad company.
"Who are they," asked the Judge.

"I think," said the judge, "they are
