"Turn To The
RightVAt Ilo-Ilo
Famous Stage Play of Mirth and
Morals at Ilo Ilo Theatre
To the millions of theatre-goers who
enjoyed that greatest comedy-drama
hit of the speaking stage in John Gold-
en's presentation of "Turn to the
Right,,' by Winchell Smith and John
E. Ilaziard, and to the millions who
longed to Bee It, the news that thU
universally popular play has been
transferred to thf screen will prove a
joyful notice.   . • 	
This highlight of the stage characterized 4.8 "the play of mirth and
morals," ln Its celluloid version ts presented by John Golden and Marcus

"Turn to the Right," is the story of
a smalltown youth who, unjustly sent

a mortgage on the homestead. With
the aid of his two crook pals a way Is
found to beat out the old skinflint,
and then the two crooks under the
homey influence of the oged mother

All that delightful mixture of heart
throbs and smiles which won such a
wonderful tribute from the public ln
the stage play has been preserved and
intensified in the screen version. In
the leading feminine role is Alice
Terry who won her way to fame ln
"The Four Horsemen" and "Conquering Power" while playing opposite her

Lydia Knott, Betty Allan, Margaret
Loomls, William Bletcher, Eric May no

She was a little Irish girl whose
mother had died and she had been
adopted by Isaac Rosenstein, the
father ot hor little playmate, Nat. But
Itosonsteln's kindness was expressed
chiefly In giving her the same privilege of working all day In the store
and all evening witli housework that
he would give to his own daughter.
Her childhood had been filled witli
second-hand  pleasures.
Her present was filled with secondhand hope.
Her future threatened a second
hond love with a second hand husband
To be sure, he was a Irishman, but
he was middle aged and had been married once already. Couldn't even get
a brand new husband!
Old Rosensteln lay back on hiB sick
bed with wistful eyes. He knew that
his second-hand store would be gone
if he couldn't get on his feet or get
money enough to run the store while
he was sick. Only Rosie marrying
Tarn McCarthy would save the day.
And Rosle said yes!
But there came a day when Rosie
rode In a brand new Ford with a
brand new husband to a brand new
home with no second-hand worries
mixed up with it! See Gladys Walton

Angeles, California, where the honeymoon will be spent.
On their return Mr. and Mrs. Cavin

When nature fashioned Vancouver
Island, she seems to have designed lt

one ot the richest places ot the world

and delightful climate she could contrive. Set ln one of the most loveliest

VANCOUVER—Five weeks ago trying to dispose of Vancouver Island
coal in this city was a hard business,
according to coal mine operators. Today, those people Who could hardly

any circumstances a short time ago

say. >
The United States coal strike had
little effect on the Vancouver Island
coal mines. They were most of them
running part time, and were finding
it hard to dispose of their product.
The non-union mines of Washington
and Idaho were able to supply the
whole Pacific Coast demand and ship
to some parts of the middle West.      j
With the tie-up of American rail-;
vays, due to the shopmen's strike, |
tlie situation has changed, and coal,

One colliery ou the Island, with a
production of about 1,000 tons a day,
has sufficient business offering to be

The annual cry for help has gone
up from the wheat fields, the corn
fields and the orchards. The harvest
has been bountiful, the laborers
scarce and hard to secure. The Heavenly Father and the Canadian soil
give us wealth. Graft and laziness
give us poverty. Whether crops are
largo or small, whether industrial
conditions are good or bad, there is
always difficulty in obtaining as many
men as the need requires.
The thrifty farmer is grieved to see
his crops go to waste. He and hta
family rise before dawn and work by
moonlight to save the wealth of the
land. We hear his cry. The harvest
is great, the laborers few. Yea, we

A teacher lu one ot the large cities
had a very mixed class, among whom
were boys of all nationalities. One
day she asked the following question:
"Who was the greatest man who ever
lived?" The one who could answer
this question best, according to her
opinion, would receive, as a prize, a
very nice, large apple which she had
on her desk.
The flrst boy who answered, being
an American, said, of course, "George'
Washington." The second one mentioned Abraham Lincoln. The third
one, being of Italian decent, mentioned Columbus. The fourth one,
an Irish kid, mentioned St Patrick.
The fifth one, being a typical little
Hebrew, mentioned. Jesus. The teacher was dumbfounded, receiving such
a reply from a little Jew. She called
him over to her desk, handed him the
apple, and said, "Now, Ikey, tell me
how lt is that you, being a little Jew,
and not believing in Jesus as (he
Christ, mentioned His name aa the
greatest man who ever lived, whHe
none of the other frays thought of it?"
To thia Ikey replied: "Well, teacher,
between you and me, I really believe
that Moses was a much greater man,
but business is business."

Naturally, those who see this heading expect to read about some "baby
heir" of an American multi-millionaire;
and they will be surprised to learn that
such a description applies to a scientific
pyorrhea preventative, tooth and mouth
preparation, and they will doubtless
wonder how such a product ever came
to be spoken of as a "million il-.tlar
baby." So the story must be told.
Over three yearsf ago, tiie Research
Department of the Rexall Company,
in consultation with cliemicalspi'cialists,
began an exhaustive investigation inlo
the disease Pyorrhea, and its proper
treatment, and in their characteristically thorough way spent uvor two
years before they perfected a compound
which answered every test, according
10 their high standards, Sue!-, a remarkable demand has been created that ihey
have named it "the Million Dollar
Baby." Frobably no preparation that
is devised for use ns a germ combatter
was found so efficacious in preventing
all contagious diseases that enter tlle
system through the mouth nnd nose as
Klenzo Liquid Antiseptic. Especially
was it proved that users of it completely
escaped all attacks of the flu when so
■irevalent last year. This Kexall product can be purchased in 35c. and ode.

Judge's Remarks on Cumberland
In Recent Contest At Ladysmith
The following remnrks from the
ndjudicntor, Mr. N. C. Ayling, in the

be of interest:
"Echoes from the Opera"
Opening—Not very well rendered.
Tempo too slow. Trill played very
nicely by cornels.
Tempo Valse—Band not very well
in tune here. Euphonium playing
nicely Clarionet also doing well.

nervous Proupettl In (itli bar well
Largetto 3|4—Very good opening
by limns. Band not very well iu
tune. Good expression Trombone

2|4 Allto. Modto.— Correct tempo
Clarionets playing well Trombone sus-
iniuing good.
Unrein— These throe bnrs are well

should be given.
Maestoso—Too fast not broad
enough. Good expression. Band better in tune. Horns seem a little weak.
Cornets get a nice tone. General tone
nl* bund good.
"Bohemian Girl"
Opening a little uncertain Clarionets nre n llitlo out of tune. Andantino
u trifle loo slow. Cornels should have
a little more control over phrasing

seem to be too heavy, Accented notes
need u little more attention, .Tempo
u --little too slow. Cornets not very
good on ljlli notes. Bund ls also out of tune. Top Ab Is badly
out of tune. Too much confusion in
tho cornet section. Change of key
opened nicely by the clarionets. More
attention should be given to articulation. Cornet seems to fall down rather
badly. Busses are doing well also the
Euphonium. Allegro Vivance not fast
enough, too bad tlie bund wns so much
out of tune.
"Uonis of Scotia.''
Andante Basses open well Expression notes well noted here. Whole

Cumberland & Union Waterworks Co., Ltd.
Owing to the prolonged dry wefrther we find that it is necessary to restrict the use of
water, as if we allow the present enormous consumption to continue the town may, in the event
of no rainfall for the next two monthi, be faced  with a water famine.
In YOUR interests and f-*.' .ho protection of YOUR property in the event of a fire, we
find it necessary to bring into ef.ect immediately the following regulations:—
(1). Water must not be used for sprinkling or irrigating purposes except—FOR ONE
HOUR ONLY—from 7 a.m. to 8 a.m.
(2). The practice of using water for the purpose of watering sidewalks, streets, etc.,
must cease. Persons Uoing water for these purposes are liable to have their services disconnected until such time as we can install a meter  on their supply.
(3). Leaking taps, toilets, pipes, fittings, etc., must immediately be brought into good
repair as any premises on which water is found wasting from these causes will be disconnected
without further notice.
There is absolutely no desire on the part of this Company to curtail the use of
water when same is used in a proper manner for domestic purposes, but in a large number of
cases we find this privilege being abused and should the abuse continue we shall be forced to consider the installation of water meters, which would make the cost of water much heavier for the
same consumption.
We once more draw to your attention the fact that this is being done in YOUR
interests as every leaking tap or pipe or sprinkler used unnecessarily lowers the water pressure
and consumes water that may be needed in a few weeks more for household purposes or may be
needed TODAY to extinguish a lire on YOUR property.
Thanking you in anticipation of • your co-operation in this matter, we are,
Yours truly,

An advertising specialist, who drifts
from town to town gathering contributions to a "Who's Who" register,
had nicely started operations ill Nanaimo, when lie was recognized as a
gent who had fallen foul of thc Vancouver police last winter. Then he
took the Ilrst boat out of town. It is
whispered, however, that he succeeded In cajolllng several small amounts
us deposits from prospective clients
in Nannlmo. Thc scheme hns been to
describe anyone with the price as a
"prominent citizen," or a "social leader," and publish it In a cheap little
directory. The fee, which Is the main
thing, runs to anything the booBter
can get. He served ono short term In
