Public School Children
Gave First-Class Concert
Monday and Tuesday
The concert of Monday and Tuesday of this week held ln the Ilo-Ilo
Theatre under the auspices of the
principal, A. H. Webb, and the teachers of the Cumberland Public School,
waa a huge success. The Immense
audience crowded to the doors—
standing room at a premium—must
have realized that the principal and
the teachers of the school had spent
a great deal ot time aad labor 'to
training their pupils to the point of
efficiency as shown at the concert.
The parents of the pupils who took
part In the performances (and there
was some 250), did not spare any
pains, time or money, for the costumes
as tliey appeared on the stage were
all thai could be desired.
Boiiis} promp. seemed to be the word
of the evening, Ou the minute, aa advertised, the concert commenced. The
curtain weht up, the audience standing, the pupils under the direction of
Principal A. H. Webb sang "0
Canada." The electric lights flashed,
seeking certain requirements; the
curtain went up and down after each
piece with an astounding rapidity aa
though every boy and girl knew their
duty and did It. There waa no wait,
when the one class waa putting on
their part, the next* waa standing by
waiting their turn, and for two hours
and-a-half on each evening It waa continuous. Although some parts received greater applause than others;
encores were called time oyer and
again; none were given. It teemed aa
though the principal, teachers and
pupils had a work to do and they were
doing It nn time.
A notable feature of the evening
waa the manner In which the boys
tackled the singing. The dancen In
the minuet brought down the bouse;
their old-vlme costumes, with powdered hair, and their graceful movements,
was pleasing to all.
Por massed costume the action song
Story Book Ball la worthy of special
mention. The artistes seemingly had
dug up all the nursery rhyme charac-
ters ever known.
The fairies from the lower room*
danced and sang as If they were en-
Joying Uie fun und quite heedless of
the audience who breathlessly followed every movement. The coetumea of
the fairies were very dainty, which
gave the desired effect.
Promp. action and pep commenced
when the little fellows trom the lower
rooms came on with their dumb bells,
all dressed the same, with blue
sweaters liearlng the Initials C. P. S.
The folk dancers with tbelr wonderful colour schemes, were energetically
and gracefully performed. The swiftly-changing movements received full
appreciation from those present.
The realistic little niggers, with
liisdr qualnl sayings, reflected great
credit on hose who gave them their
training,
"In Grandma's Day," performed by
a number ot old-fashioned maidens
and the little sailor boys tram ttie
same class, were remarkable.
The drills by the senior boy* anA
girls were also well rendered; tne
dancing steps being especially good,
Mrs. Ruggles certainly bid bar
hands full, and her lessons oo
"Mannersea" should bnve good results
on the hearers. Her much Instructed
family played their part In a pleasing
manner.
The two-part songs rendered by
Divisions II and III were wall received, and Ihe songs of Divisions I
and II showed results ot careful training. The eyes ot the pupils never left
the baton, responding to every movement. 0
The abort operetta went with aoap
and vim from start to flnlsb.
The actors and the donkey gave
cause for a great deal of laughter.
The light on the stage between two
small boys seemed as though It waa
real.
Work well accomplished means a
step ahead tor all concerned. May we
soon see another attempt by the school
children. The receipts will be about
$360.00, wltb an expenditure ol almost 1180,00.
Tbe teachers desire to thank all
parents who did ao much to help out.
Without the pretty costumes provided
by the parents, such a successful concert' would have been Impossible.
Things educational muat he looking
up tn Cumberland, wben everyone
seems willing to do anything tbey can
to help forward any scheme tor tbo
Improvement' of conditions In our
Public Spools.
TOUGH LUCK
A certain alderman, who shall be
nameless, and who resides not a
thousand miles from Cumberland, arrived home about 11.30 a short Idme
ago, and found' ha could get no water
out of the pipes In his bouse. He
swore a little, then some more, and
commenced to thaw them out, although tbere was hardly any frost on
this particular evening. He worked
until S a.m., but got no result. Went
to bed disgusted, and at about 7 or 8
he awoke again, atill thinking about
those — pipes. He thought he would
have another go at them; went outside to investigate, when some one
told hlm the water waa shut off.
We wonder what he aaid then?

From accounts available, Mr. Hud
son struck a spike on one ot the other

"I shall have to eat my meals standing up." His many friends wlah him
a speedy recovery, and on enquiry at.
the hospital we were Informed that
the patient was resting easily.

MR. NEILL REPLIES
TO LETTER OF
MR. C. H. DICKIE
Alberni Member Quotes Hansard
to Prove Local Federal Member's Stand on Fuel Question.
During the course ot his speech at
Wellington on Friday night, of last
weak, Mr. A. W. Neill, Federal member for Comox-Alberni, took occasion
to reply to a letter which appeared in
tbe Daily Herald, Nanaimo, ot Dec
Srd, over tbe signature ot Mr. C. H
Dickie, M.P., tn which Mr. Dickie
denied statements made by Mr. Neil!
in his speech at Cumberland regarding Mr. Dickie's atitude on the fuel
oil question. Mr. Neill told his Wellington audience he bad not tho time
to enter Into a newspaper controversy!
with anyone and wu content to quote
"Hansard" In support of his stnte-j
ment that he did not receive any sup-
port from Mr. Dickie ln hia efforts tc
have tbe duty on fuel oil Increased.
Quoting Mr. Dickie's remarks or
tbe fuel oil question, Mr. Neill read
tbe following from "Hansard," undor
date of March 23rd, 1922, Vol. 67, No.
11, page 363:
"I realise that the use ot fuel oil Ib
of  great  advantage  on  steamships,
Several important matters were discussed at tbe Council meeting on Monday evening, with only a portion of
tbe Council present, including Hia
sVorshlp Mayor Macdonald, Aid. Parn-
siaiu, llanuerinan and Beveridge.
Tbo accounts were pased as usual,
and there were no communications of
any Importance.  ,
ihe chairmen of the finance and other
committees handed In their reports.
Three or four weoks ago the Council commenced to consider the advisability ot erecting new city buildings. It was suggested tha.' they be
of a modern nature, including Council Chambors, city clerk's office, city
hall, police office, with living quarters
ior the chief; fire hall with quarters
for the ilremen and other necessary
offices, and to cover the entire cly
lot, which Is 100 x 120, and either to
sell or remove thc old buildings, which
aro In need of extensive repairs.
Knowing the state of affairs, Alderman Charles Parnham requested permission to introduce a money by-law
,o borrow 310,000.00, this being a pre-
.imlnary es imate of the cost of tha
new building, and submit the by-law
to the rate-payers at the coming
Municipal election. Aid. Parnham's
request was granted on motion of
Aid. Bannerman, seconded by Aid.

one day we were going very slowly.

and vice versa.
"I understood that the same conditions applies In many cases to coastwise vessels. If you go down to tin-
engine room or stokehold of a steamer
on which fuel oil Is used, everything
Is clean and In order, and no effort Im

HOW ARE THE
MIGHTY FALLEN !
Thru members of the Cumberland
Badminton Club were chatting confidentially on Wedneaday night' last,
woen tbey were disturbed by the ringing of the telephone. Tbe usual
"Hello" having been said; then "How
would you Ilk* a game ot Badminton"
cam* over the wire. "I am all alone
bar* and I think a game would pul
me In good shape." "All rlgbt, we
will b* down In a few minutes."
Arrived at the court ln the Anglican
Hall and found their "host" awaiting
tbem. Racqueta were produced, and
strange ♦ relate the two expert Badminton playera lined themselves up
oo ooe side, leaving (be two novices
to oppose them. It wu 10 o'clock,
and at 11 the novice* had decisively
beaten tb* experts, taking 4 games out
of alx. We might well say: "How aro
tbe mighty fallen!"
Messrs. Davo Kenny, D. Richardson,
H. L. Bates, and a real old buck-and-
wing step-dance by J. Stewart, accompanied by Mr. Klnnonmont, on tb*
piano.
Thc Bmoke having subsided auffl-
clently for boxing, the first bout consisting of four two-minute rounds in
the 135 class between Messrs, Harold
Jones nnd Micky Mitchell, wu a bout
which everyone present enjoyed u an
exhibition of gooil clean sportsmanlike
boxing; no fooling, but every blow
wm for business. The ring generalship of both boxorB was somewhat of
a pleasant surprise to tbe spectators.
The next boul, four two-minute
round:i between Messrs. Jack Foster
and Hob Bennie In the 145 pound
class, wos a bout full of "pep" right
from the start; Bennlo darting In and
out with llgliinlng-like lefts to the
faco and Foster rising at the le*st
unexpected momenta from his terrible
Broutab ,vlil. those telling Jabs to tho

been held In Nanaimo. The Lord's
Dny Act* was put through the Ottawa
House without any reference to the
Western provinces. As a matter of
tact, this law was passed by the Dominion Legislature without any reference to the peoplo of Canada nt
all. It! was never an issue with tbo
people of Canada, and it was left so
that while it might bo enforced ln one
province It might never be Invoked
in another.
The result was that whilo one province was calling on the legal authorities of the province to enforce the
Act, another province was carrying on
Its law business as If such an Act had
never been placed on the Statutes.
As a matter of fact, there has never
been nny attempt' to enforce the
Lord's Day Act In this province, the
more particularly lu regard to sport.
The writer has been connected with
tho sport of Association football for
tho past seventeen years, and he satisfied himself that In arranging Sunday
gameu ho was violating no laws of tlie
Dominion. So it was that wheu tbls
question came up in Nanaimo he was
ready to ask for a show-down, and to
demand tbat thc point In law should
be decided.
The Police Commissioners took thc
same point of view as Tho Herald.
Mayor Busby, and Commissioners
Welch and German wanted a decision.
They might, lt Ib true, have appealed
to the city solicitor; but they preferred to tbrow the whole case open
and to appeal to Ihe court. They had
heard these same questions raised at
different times, and all they wanted
was a court ruling. Now that Ihey
have lt, there ls not the slightest doubt
but that tbey abide by It.
It ls hardly necessary to go Into
the details of the charges which were
heard before Stipendiary Magistral's
Beevor-Potts yesterday morning. In
the Ilrst case the magistrate did not
wait to hear argument from counsel.
Ho stated that there had been no case
made oul for the prosecution and ho
dismissed the cose.
The evidence In the second charge
In which Jsb. Watson was charged
with Indulging In a game of football
on a Sunday, elsewhere than in a
church, for which a fee was directly
or Indirectly charged, was practically
the same as ln the first charge. Testimony was called as to the method
j used to lake up the collection. It was
adduced that there was no compulsion, that any contributions to the
gate were voluntary, and that these
contributions varied from five cents
to ^wentji-flve cents. It was brought
out' that many went in to the game
without paying at all, the plain Infer-
once being that any contribution to
tlie gate was absolutely voluntary.
While lt may be argued that Mr.
Jus. Wa'.son was a spectator of the
game, he was, as a matter of fact, the
manager of the Nanaimo City team,
and he ls a soccer player with an International record. The same evidence was brought out as In the previous case, and after the prosecution
had called It's case, Magistrate Potts
referred to the case of Rex vs. Thompson.
Mr. Leighton, counsel for the prosecution, admitted that His Worship
could not do other than dismiss the
case, but he argued that the parties
behind these charges might want to
go to the Appeal Court, and they had
got to start with Magistrate Potts'
court.
Magistrate Potts said that he had
no othor alternative than to dismiss
the charge, and he so ordered.
Mr. Leighton asked for a stated case
so that If It was thought desirable
the people behind these charges could
carry the charge to the Court of Appeal.
Magistrate Potts refused to give a
stated case, preferring to rely on his
verdict on the Judgment he had
quoted, In which the Appeal Court of
Alberta had thrown out a similar case.
(From last Wednesday's Nanaimo
Dally Herald).

Verbal Bouquets
Presented To
Attorney-General
VICTORIA, Dec. 11—Attempts of
Opposition members to embarrass the
Government through demanding an
enquiry Into the administration of the
P. G. E. Railway, have fallen flat before the Public Accounts Committee.
When given the opportunity to delve
into anything and everything they
wished ln connection with P. G. E.
accounts, the Conservative member
for Rossland, backod by his leader,
W. J. Bowser, K.C., and R. H. Pooley,
Esquimalt, demanded the hooka of the
Northern Construction Company and
asked that ollicials of that concern
be subpoenaed. Liberal members of
the committee said they had no objection to calling any witnesses necessary to clear up any doubts, but
until the committee exhausted the evidence at hand In the Legislative Buildings there was no need of this. Balked
In their plans, the Conservatives beat
a retreat, declaring that they would
have nothing further to do with the
matter.
Verbal bouquets havo been presented to Hon. A. M. Manson, Attorney-General and Minister of Labo{s,
for the way the work of the Legislature has been speeded up this session.
The House haa not been held up once
for want of ready work to consider
and all legislation has been Introduced
In plenty of time to afford full consideration hy members. In the past
a flood of legislation has been brought
down at a late hour, largely through
lack of earlier preparation. This left
the Government open to criticism, the
claim being made frequently that
eleventh-hour legislation should not
be "railroaded" through without giving a chance to Opposition members
to study them. The new Attorney-
General has corrected this.
Blockade tactics were attempted by
Opposition members in the Legislature when the Government sought the
unanimous support of the House for
the Manson resolution asking the
Federal Government to grant British
Columbia the aole right to Import
liquor. Last year the Conservatives
refused to discuss the beer issue in
the House, walking out ln a body, but
they favored the securing ot control
of importation. The resolution ot a
year ago resulted ln legislation being
Introduced at Ottawa which passed
the House of Commons but waa defeated In the Senate. Thia year's resolution passed by a majority of
thirty to fourteen, all members supporting Hon. Mr. Manson with the exception of the Conservatives.
The Attorney-General made a
spirited appeal for unanimous support, pointing out that any member
who voted against the resolution waa
working against the best Interests ot
the province. He showed that the
Conservative party platform of two
years agp included a plank exactly
bearing out what the Government now
proposes to do. The minister maintained that Government control and
private Importation were contemporaneously Impossible. Unless bootlegging was to flourish Importation
must be controlled by the Government
As predicted ln this newspaper two
weeks ago, the Burde eight-hour Bill
was defeated In the Legislature when
a vote was taken. However, the Issue
waB a close one; twenty-two members
opposing the present passing of tbe
Bill, while eighteen cast their votes
for lt. Many members declared they
were ln favor of the principle but did
uot wish to see industry ln British
Columbia stilled at thia time through
the passing of restrictive legislation,
when the competition between the
province and neighboring states and
provinces would be such as to cripple local Industry. Premier Oliver
said that in this young province it waa
absolutely necessary that production
be kept at a high level. In time It
might be expedient to cut down the
hours of work in certain Industries,
but that time was not the present.
Indications are that next year there
may be a different Btory, aa several
of those who opposed the passing of
the measure this year have stated
that they would not withhold their
support next session.

McCLARY'S
Electric Ranges
Women's burdens for centuries past were heavy
because the human race did not know how to lighten
them. An enlightened age has gradually brought now
labor-saving devices to assist her—the greatest of
which is the Electic Range.
McCLARY'S ELECTRIC RANGE
has exclusive features that further reduce women's
burdens, saving time, labor and anxiety.
There is the Protected Element—the Element is
the burner, where the heat comes from. Like other
Electric Appliances, the heat is radiated from wire
coils, but the Protected Element snugly encloses these
coils in porcelain to save them from carelessness or accidental upsets. Therefore, McCLARY'S Protected
Element lasts longer, as acids, moisture and grease
cannot harm it. It heats quickly and holds the heat
long after the power is turned off.
The wonderful seamless, round-cornered Oven—
not a nick or crevice in its smooth, even, impenetrable,
glassy enamelled interior. lAs sanitary as any enameled
interior. As sanitary as any enameled utensil, rust resisting, cleanly. Racks and rack holders removable".
Elements swing on hinges, so that entire surface of
oven is clear for cleaning.
The Oven has a 1% in. insulation around the side
and a \\'i in. magnesia block insulation in the door—
this holds the heat in oven. Roasts and baked foods
retain their full flavor. The result is better baked
foods with minimum shrinkage.
Warming Oven with small element inside.
Signal lights to show whether current for Oven
is on or off.
Switches for elements plainly marked.
Extra plug for other Electric Appliances.
Mercury or Compensating Thermometer.
Fuses easily accessible.

DON'T BE A CHUMP
Soon the unbrojken song of "On
earth peace, good will to men" will
be heard everywhere. Almost before
we realize it, the season for kindling
the lire of Remembrance will be here.
Soon the joy bells will awaken In the
hearts of humanity—soon we will he
shouting, "Merry Christmas!" and
"Happy New Year." And then—after
ihe feast and frolic—we will have to
gather up the burnt-out tapers, cast
aside the drled-out wreaths, sweep
uway thc broken tinsel nnd go back
to the same old HveB again. Hut you
are a chump if you don't get all tht
fun you can oul of Christmas.
GET OUT AND WALK
That walking is the best preventive
of colds and Influenza has been asserted by a member of the International Walkers' Association.
Walking is good at all times, but
with the opening of the winter season,
we appreciate the lowered temperature and its urging us to stimulate
the circulation by exercise. Since
walking Is the cheapest, most profit-
bale and most pleasant among physical recreations, It were well for all
to Indulge the practice as much as
possible.
The man who desires to be cfflclent
must consider a number of things,
but chiefly must lie recognize that
fresh air absolutely la necessary to
the maintenance of health. As long
as the lungs and brain receive a suflicient amount of oxygen, they will perform their functioning vigorously and
well, but the moment they fail to receive an adequate supply they become
sluggish and unfit to work. Too many
men and women of sedentary habits
rush to their offices ln autos   or   on
street cars. Always they are up to
their ears In work. And so years pass
on. But the organs of the body cannot stand such strain, and usually
realization conies too late. In consequence we see many men and women
who should be In their physical
prime, grown prematurely old. At
comparatively early age, burdened by
responsibilities, weakened by Improper living, they find themselves
done, ready for the cozy corner and
the easy chair. Tliey worked ou
record time, but when ready to begin
the ascent of a heavy grade al middle
life, they lind tlie efficiency gauge re
gisters about ten pounds of energy.
They cannot "pull up hill." So the
backward slide begins, and lt doesn't
stop.
Much of this all too common phy
steal impairment is due to neglect of
walking aud deep breathing. Success
without average health Is difficult;
health cannot be enjoyed without en-
[Uglllg In exercise. Some part of you
iontlnuously is dying and some wise
lhllosopher has said: "Old age is
.tllfness."
It Is folly for a man lo fancy that
-ie can cheat Nature. Get out and
valk. Every day, rain or shine.
.foalth begets energy, courage, self-
•eliance, hope; and these qualities ars
,'sscntlal to mortal success and happiness.
and ls Usually employed as a medium
for amusement.
Were you ever In the woods at
night, all alone? If you have not enjoyed this soul-stirring experience, we
would advise you to try It. You cannot stand the silence of night, beneath
the templed trees without surrendering.
In this day and age people cuddle
too much; tbey cuddle in crowds md
lounge in litters. We blot out the
glory of the stars with electric signs.
Instead of reading God's message in
the skies, we watch the twinkling of
red and blue lights advising us to take
somebody's  liver pills.
The trouble with most ot us Is thai
we have made this great lnstitullni.
of Night a mere masquerade season,
when In reality Night is Nature s
great ancestor—for in the beginning
God said: "Let there be light"—the
most majestic and moral Influence
that wo have. Night is the one omnipotent opportunity for moral Improvement, but most of us make It
thc open gate for a getaway.
When your spiritual side gets a
little rickety, go out Into thc night
and watch the myriads of other
worlds, full of light and life—the animated, countless, ancient proofs of
Almighty God.
ALONE AT NIGHT
SLAT'S DIARY
Stand under tbe starry decked
canopy at night and you can seem
to hear the whisperings of your own
soul. You get a viewpoint when
alone with the stillness of the night
that cannot fall to Impress even the
most thoughtless.
By day, we humans hurry, hate and
hang our hopes on the little pegs of
ambition, and then by night, we try
to rest by seeking more evcltement.
What a mistake, and how it costs the
next day.
What we do at night ls tbe answer
to what we shall do the following day.
Not one person in ten employs night
to his advantage. Night should be the
time for reflection, the hour for mental
rest and physical relaxation. Night Is
the greatest gift for our advancement

have a large number of unsold popples on hand, and are extremely anxious to dispose of them so that the
money   received   therefrom   may   he
used to allay Borne of the dire distress
prevailing amongst the families of ex-
service men.
These popples were made In Vancouver by disabled men; the stems
are of pliable wire, thus being very
adaptable for stringing for Xmas decorations. They can be secured, in
j any numbers, at two cents each from
thc Disabled Veterans' Association at
above address.
Every cent goes to relief, there being   no   charge   for   administration.
This appeal  Is being  made   to   the
churches and women's organizations.
Hugh Thornley, President.

Big Scenes With Fine Players
In "Ebb Tide" Film At Ilo-Ilo
Battle With Octupus and Storm
at Sea Will Thrill AU
Picture Fans.
A desperate light with an octopus,
a breath-taking storm at Bea, scenes
of pearl divers at work, and overlaying it all the remarkably human characters ot Robert Louis Stevenson and
Lloyd Osborne—such are the high
lights of "Ebb Tide,"' a new Georgo
Melford Paramount picture which
comes to the llo-llo Theatre this Friday and Saturday.
The finely drawn charactera which
are so truly Stevonsonian divide Interest so equally tn the story thai' Mr.
■Melford, Instead of featuring any one
or two players, haB assembled a notable cast, all of whom are of "star"or
near-star rank tn their own right.
The women are Llla Lee and Jacqueline Logan. Tbe men Include James
KIrkwood, Raymond Hatton, George
Fawce ft and Noah Beery. All aro
members of the recently organized
Paramount Stock Company players.
As In the case of "Burning Sands,"
beautiful exterior scenes are the most
important feature of "Ebb Tide." A
Pacific Island was chosen foi the
locale and transformed into a tropical isle. Mr. Melford, wl.1i a large
amount of portable electrical equipment, a fleet of power boats and
schooners, and a large force of players
and technical help, encamped for a
whole month at this locution.
" The Snow-Shoe Trail" Coming
Tons of ice-clogged water sweeping
furiously over jagged rocks; a man
and a girl caught In the surging onrush of the river; iheir skin cut and
bruised by contact with ice nnd rocks;
tbelr bodies numbed from the cx-
crutiating cold; fighting with n courage borne, of desperation against the
merciless tide that swep- them gradually toward the brink of a mighty
falls—that, lu brief—forms one of thu
stirring climaxes of "Tho Snow-Shoe
Trail," Jane Novak's latest starring
vehicle scheduled for exhibition at
the llo-llo Thea'.Te on Monday anl
Tuesday of next week.
Beautiful, decllcately charming Jane
Novak and rugged Roy Stewart risked
their lives repeatedly ln tho filming
of this thrilling episode which will
| be shown with crushing realism on
! tiie screen. Once they were caught
j in the swif.'-nioving currents tbey had
to trust to luck and tile grace of God
they'd come out of it alive. The results of their daring and devotion to
art are shown plainly in the tensely
drama ic development of the scene in
question.
Tho adventure In the rapids, during
a lashing blizzard, is bul one of the
big scenes that combine to make Miss
Novak's latest F.I3.0. release one of
the most thrilling vehicles in which
she has ever appeared. With her ln
.he cast, besides Mr. S ewart, are such
prominent players as Lloyd Whltlock,
Herbert Prior, Kate Toncray and
Spottlswoode Aitken.    •
"My Boy was Starving to Death"
"As He Was Getting No Nourishment He Was
Gradually Wasting Away."
Phone 133
"Here's a story which will Interest
every mother. Before my boy wns
born, I was in such delicate health
that the doctor didn't think I would
survive tlie ordeal. For weeks Biter
he was born my life was despaired of,
so I couldn't feed him and tlie poor
little fellow was left to the care of
friends. He wasn't naturally strong.
No care was taken in choosing Ins
food and his poor little stummli
became so weakened that he couldn't
keep anything on it. As he was
gelling no nourishment from his
food, he was gradually wasting away.
Finally, in desperation, we sent fur a
child specialist and he said that my
boy was starving to death. He gave
him some meilicine and advised a
certain diet The child did improve
but somehow couldn't seem to get
strong. This wen t on for four or five
years and the boy still continued
weak and puny looking. He could
not play like other children without
haviug to lie down and rest. My
sister who lives on a farm near the
sea, said that she could fix him up if
I would send him to her. While I
hated being separated from him, I
was ready to make any sacrifice to
get him strong. He was away from
me for three months and it was with
feelings of great excitement that I
awaited his return as my sister had
written me that I would be surprised
wlitm I saw my boy. When my
sister got off the train, I could not
believe that it was my own buy that
she war, leading by the hand. 1 nevt r
saw such a change in miycli'Ul. He
was fat and rosy and full of life with
a happy smile I 'Wlmton ehftii htn'c
you done to hiin,' I said. 'Why,' she
replied, '1 simply made him liveout
of doors, gave him good food—a:.,1
here's the real stent, I g.ive him
three bottles of Caruoil ileiore be
had taken half a bottle his wholo
appearance hnd changed. Ile f>- t
heavier, bis lace took on a colour siisi
he would run round for hours at a
time.' The change in my boy is tho
moat wonderful event in my life, 1
am a regular 'fan' for Carnol and
never lose a clinnce to boost it. As I
write I am lookiiigontol' the window
and when I see that ro>.y, nciivt',
healthy child running rounds T cannot
believe that he was once a puny,
delicate boy."
Carnol is sold by your druggist,
and if you can conscientiously say,
after you have tried it, that it hasn't
'done you any gnud, return the empty
bottle lo him and he will refund your
money. d-sH'*'

A Prompt Answer Improves
Everybody's Telephone Service
Sometimes when you make a telephone call, you
do not get the numbers promptly. When you tell the
operator, she says, " I will ring them again."
Finally, when you get the party wanted, do you
feel that the operator has not given you prompt service, or do you realize that the person you called may
not have answered the telephone at once?
It will help to provide prompt service for all if.
every subscriber will answer the telephone as soon as
the bell rings.

Tommy Nakanishi
Fuel Oil
In the eaily days of the present
Dominion Parliament, the members?
from British Columbia Introduced a
resolution calling for Ihe total exclusion ot Asiatics from Canada.
Premier King could not see his way
clear to accept the resolution, and
moved an amendment substituting
"effective restrlcUon" for total exclusion. Mr. C. H. Dickie was somehow reported as having spoken in
favor of the Orientals, and wae presumed to have voted against the resolution. Mr. Dickie has since explained that not only did he vote in
favor of the resolution, but that he
was complimented on the speech he
delivered In the House ln favor of the
resolution.
Now we have Mr. Neill, tlie member
for Comox-Alberni, declaring that Mr.
Dickie did nothing to help him ln his
efforts to secure the retention ot the
present duty on fuel oil. According
to a report appearing in the Free
Press last night, Mr. Neill Is made to
declare that *Mr. Dickie spoke rather
in favor of fuel oil than against It.
Before coming to any conclusion on
the matter It will be as well to hear
from Mr. Dickie. Mr. Dickie was
pledged to maintain the present duty
on fuel oil. Ho Is, as a matter of fact,
a protectionist by policy, and always
spoke in favor of a protective tariff
As the representative of a large coal
mining community, he was hardy likely to betray their interests and turn
his back on all his campaign pledges.
The thing to do .now is to hear from
Mr. Dickie.
The question involved never was of
more vital Interest to Nanaimo than
it Is to-day. Conditions have reached
the point where either the coal mining
Industry ot this island must be protected against the competition of fuel
oil, or lt must seriously reduce Its
output Mr. Neill Is said to claim all
the credit for the retention of the
present duty, although Mr. Stevens,
the man he was criticising, was one of
the members at Ottawa who succeeded
In having the duty Imposed. Again
Premier King in a campaign telegram
to Mr. Booth, published ln the Free
Press, on the eve of the general election, promised an Investigation Into
the coal Industry ot British Columbia,
and pledged himself to give further
protection lt lt could be shown that
lt was necessary and advisable. We
are given to understand that this Investigation is now being carried out,
and if the real conditions are brought
home to the Government, we cannot
tee why Mr. Neill should be so pessimistic. What Is required from all
of us Is that we ehould help ourselves.
Let the mining communities ot the Island get together as a unit on this
question, and urge upon the Government the Imperative necessity of
giving adequate protection to an industry which means not only everything to those directly interested In
the mines, but a very great deal to
the prosperity of the province.

COMMUNITY DANCE
AT ROYSTON JUST
CLEARED EXPENSES
The dance held under the auspices
ot the Royston Community Club on
Friday night last, was, under the circumstances .fairly successful. The
promoters did not expect a huge
crowd, on account of th. big snowstorm, but ware agreeably surprised
to find on checking up, that a few dollars over expenses had been realized.
The Royston Community Club have
gained an enviable reputation for the
manner in which they organize their
many social events, and they Intend
on the next occasion to out-do any
yet held.
