Police Court News
At the provincial police court on
Monday before the Stipendiary Magistrate, Mr. John Baird, William Stanaway was charged with disorderly
conduct by throwing a stone on Penrith Avenue on June 6. He pleaded
The evidence showed that on the
day in Question, a schoolboy, named
Sidney Eccleston, was returning from
school along Penrith Avenue when
the defendant called out to hlm,
"Hullo, cackler." Eccleston replied,
"How about yourself?" and went on.
Defendant picked up a stone and
threw it at Eccleston, who happened
to turn round at the time, and the
stone struck him in the left eye, whlcb
was seriously injured necessitating
his Immediate removal to the hospital
where he was attended by Dr. McNaughton. He was an in-patient for
12 days. The chief of police informed
the magistrate that this was Stana-
way's flrst appearance before the
court. His parents were respectable
people, and the defendant had borne
a good character and was In regular
employment. No doubt this would be
a lesson to him, but ln view of the
many complaints received as to the
disorderly conduct of youths, lt was
necessary to tako steps to prevent
such complaints In future.
The magistrate informed Stanaway
that he was liable to a heavy penalty
for this offence, but if a fine was inflicted It would fall heavily upon his
parents, who would have to pay lt.
He warned hlm against stone-throwing and disorderly conduct iu future,
and directed that ho must be under
the supervision of the chief of police
for one month and was to report to
him weekly. He wns ordered to pay
the costs.
Liquor Cases
J. R. Johnston, llayne Sound Hotel,
was charged before MagistrUe Baird
with having beer in his bar at his
hotel.   He was lined $50 and costs.
J. Pridge, of Royston Road, was
charged before Magistrate Baird for
permitting drunkenness in n private
house.   Fined $50 and costs.
Water Supply Is
Dangerously Low
On account of the rapidly dwlndly
supply, the Cumberland and Union
Waterworks has found lt necessary
to make certain regulations governing
the use of water. These regulations
will be rigidly enforced and any person who is detected using sprinklers
outside of the hours .allowed, leaving
taps running when not in use, or
having pipes or fittings ln a leaky
condition, may expect to awake ln
the morning to And that their water
service has been disconnected overnight.
As the operation of the mines depends upon a constant supply of water
ft is felt that all citizens with the In
lerests of the community at heart will
do everything In their power to conserve the water and will help to see
that those who lack the sense of responsibility are brought into line. As
the question of supply is urgent and
serious, the regulations will be car
rled out without fear or favor until
such time as the water levels at the
company's dams are raised.
Vancouver Victim
Well Known Here
A drowning fatality occurred in
Coal Harbor about 4.16 o'clock last
Monday afternoon, when Jack Pur-
ves, aged 27, 415 Twenty-First Avenue
east, fell off a gasoline launch on
which he was cruising with George
Broder, living at the same address.
Broder had just gone below to bring
up a can of gasoline leaving Purves
to steer. ' Suddenly he heard James
Galbralth, ot the Imperial Oil Limited gasoline boat, call out "man overboard." Broder rushed up, but Purves was then out of sight. Ab the
boat was equipped with an overhead
exhaust, lt was impossible for Broder
to bear the cries ot the drowning
Galbralth, who witnessed the accident, stated that he saw Purves grab
at the lee rail aB he fell, but the rail
was loose and came away ln his
hands. Purves could not swim more
than six strokes. Broder, with whom
the deceased had lived for a number
of years, stated that they were just
going around to English Bay to pick
up Mrs. Broder and her daughter at
the time the accident occurred,
Mrs. Broder waited for some time,
unable to account tor their non-appearance, theu went home. Shortly
afterwards a neighbor came over and
told her what had happened.
Jack Purves was a native of Owen
Sound, Ont., and came hero about six
years ago from Saskatchewan, where
he had lived with his parents since
the age of eleven. Until February of
this year he and Broder were partners in a grocery store at Union Bay.
The store was destroyed ln the fire
which burned the greater part of
Union Bay early this year. Since that
time Purves has been unemployed.
He Is survived by his parents, residing in Saskatchewan, and a brother
Hugh, who lives in Victoria.
Courtenay Go
Down To Defeat
Cumberland entertained Courtenay
at the local ball park last Sunday afternoon and in an exhibition fixture
turned them back by a 9-3 count. The
game dragged In spots with few
smart plays. Courtenay was dead
both ways and except for the flrst
Inning were neVer dangerous. Cumberland kept on their toes for the
whole route, displaying lots of fight
and some snappy ball.
Daly chucked good ball for the
miners with support hardly up to par.
Robinson, for the dairymen, worked
hard all the way, but was poorly supported. He loosened in the pinches
and was taken for seven extra bases.
Cumberland again displayed Their
hard hitting prowess, every man collecting at least one base hit. Finch
got his customary two. Daly crashad
one to deep centre that gave him a
through passage. Lomausky drove
it tor three bags, and Conti singled
ou two occasions. Thc miners are
fast developing their talent with tho
stick and a shake up in the leaguo
standing Is overdue.
Courtenay started the fireworks in
the Ilrst spasm by shoving across two
runs on three hits, nn error nnd Buchanan's wild heave. The miners came
back Btrongor, however, and when
their half was framed the count stood
4-2. Cumberland scored again ln tho
second and In tho third four more
were earned. Finch doubled and
scored when Buchanan singled and
went to third on a mlscue. Daly then
drove tlie latter home and touched
them all as camo in for the third
counter. James singled and crossed
the log for the fourth on Conti's
drive, making the scoro read 9-2.
Courtenay got their third run ln the
seventh. Pettlcrew leading off with
a clean drive and scored on Cum-
mlngs' single. Lomausky cut short
the rally when he speared Dixon's
line drive.
Ladysmith's league leaders play
here Saturday evening, July 8, at 6

Raging Bush Fire Menaces
Merville Life And Property
Jack Clifford, 18-Year Old Youth, Loses His Life—Many Cattle
Badly Burned Are   Being   Shot
Small bush fires have been
burning north of Merville for
the past three weeks. About 6
o'clock Thursday evening a terrific wind struck that section of
the country and thc fire spread
with alarming rapidity, great
clouds of black smoke rolling
over the surrounding country.
Jack Clifford, 18 years of age, in an
attempt to save his parent's home and
barn was severely burned. He was
removed to Comox Hospital, where
he died shortly after.
We are Informed that every house
and barn along the main highway bas
been destroyed. The only buildings
left in Merville are R. H. Shaw, general store, Brackman-Ker fesd store
and Mrs. McLean's tea rooms.
Three men, whose names could not
be ascertained, whilst assisting fighting the flames were severely burned
and rolled around in the waters of
Black Creek to save themselves being
burned to death.
Residents of the district are out
shooting badly burned cattle, to put
an end to their suffering. Three
automobiles were burned up on the
main highway, being trapped between
logs which had fallen across the road.
A report says that camp two and
three of the Comox Logging Railway
Company are burned to the ground,
but this report has not been verified.
Just as we are going to press a
rumor reached this ollice that from
20 to 25 soldier settlers had lost their

on the main highway, managed to
have it towed out, tbe sides being
badly scorched and the top completely
North Vancouver—His world weariness suddenly vanished when Joe
Topp dropped from a ferry and sank
Into tho waters of the bay. Thc
water was a bit colder than he expected, and life, somehow, assumed newer sweetness. So it happened that
Joe yelled weirdly for succor, when
he arose to tbe surface. A constable
fished him out. Joe says he was tired
ot life because a woman had deserted
him ou the eve of their marriage, and
he decided to end It all. But, be confided to the cop, no woman is worth
It, so he figured he'd keep on living.
"She's a goud old world, ufter all,"
he philosophized.
Mr. Burbridge and Mr. Appi wen

and left across country for Alberni.
Mr. R. E. Frost announces that during July and August, the drug storo

"and the footballers Wednesday evening last, the game being won by 'Tina,'
■Bono's crew 13-10. Hundreds of fans
were on hand to witness tho struggle
and were satisfied with the display.
The Cumberland city band supplied
excellent music during the game,
"Peanuts" Robertson was on the
mound for the fire-eaters, and "Lefty"
Appleby did all the chucking that was
necessary for the pig-skin chasers.
The features of tho game wore Jock
Campbell's beliyflop catch and John
Cameron's sacrlllco to deep loft In tho
fifth with two men out.

applications aggregating over $80,000
were received from ex-service men,
and acted upon.

pension commissioners, it Ib possible
that the commissioner will travel
throughout the Dominion.

Comrade McNeil will accompany the
commission ns council for returned
men, and we believe that a great de.il
of useful information will be supplied
to the public through this investigation.
It is requested that ail comrades,
who have served in any of the units
during the last war, that have any
complaints to lay before the commission kindly give details to the secretary of the local branch of the

Most Remarkable
Shown With Thrilling Effect In New
Reid Picture, "Across- fhe
How a racing car, speeding over
the highway at lightning pace, Is
thrown from the road and ditched,
or otherwise hampered, blockaded or
held up in ItB race for victory, Is
shown in several sequences of

Wallace Reid, which will be shown
at thc llo-llo Iheutre on Friday anil
Walter Long, Lucien Llttleilold and
Betty Francisco, play a family of vll
lalus." father, son and daughter, in
this picture. They compose the rival
faction In the cross-continental race
wherein Wallace Reid, as Jimmy
llent, drives a much-rldlculcd "flivver" mniiufuctUNsil by his father,
played by Theodore Robcrls, to victory, finishing ahead of all contest
auls. Seeing tlie progress of the littlo
ear, the unscrupulous rival manufiic
liner, through his agents, resorts ll
all sorts of trickery to stop tho little
enr In Its dash across country.
Ono consists In setting fire to n
long stretch of straw on a sands
roadway. Another Is to dig deep ruts
in the road and curve them so that
they will land the wheels of a fast
car off Inlo thc ditch at the side
Another Is the seemingly accidental
blockade of a highway tunnel by a
huge truck from which a wheel ha
beeu taken.
Tills was intended, In the. story, lo
hold up und delay the winning car
until the car entered by the rival fac
tion could catch up. But Wallace
Held, as Jimmy Dent, driving the
"flivver" racer, thwarts the plans of
the villain by turning off and driving
through tho railway tunnel, emerging
therefrom Just In time lo escape a
fast limited train, which pursues hlm
through the tunnel.
The picture wns directed by Philip
Rosen and contains n goodly amount
of thrills, speed, romance and good
spirited drama. Mary MacLaren Is

we herewith give a few rules for the
Sit with your feet on the railing

Take a hairpin out of your hair and

If your feet perspire profusely,
take off your slippers and slide tliem
into the row ahead. |
If thc play is too serious, neutra-;
llze the effects by making silly remarks and giggle. Don't think of'
leaving the theatre iUBt because you
do not understand It or appreciate It j
It is none of your affair If .vour!
neighbors should like to give their at- i
tention to the play.
Take possession  of the  seat arms I
on both sides of you—and keep them
even though you do not see the play.
It' you go to a musical comedy, and
songs with which you are familiar
are sung, bum them loudly, thus
showing the people that you ure musi-
cal and up to the times.
When leaving tho theatre, dont
turn up tho seat of your chair. Let
the person following you stumble
over lt. This will serve to amuse
these around you.

Of_Mr. King
OTTAWA.—With the King Ministry
Hearing the close of its first parliamentary session, and with six months
of its regime behind It, it may be
profitable, as well as Illuminating, to
glance backwards over its record, to
contrast its achievements with the
countrys requirements, to examine its
performances In the light of its preelection promises. To make this
survey adequately, as well as fairly,
it ls necessary to recall what the
Liberal pre-election pledges were,
what the party bound itself to accomplish In the event of Its coming to
power. Briefly, Mr. King—we make
this summary from the olllcial Liberal platform of 1919, from the olllcial
Liberal handbook of 1921, and from
Liberal platform utterances—pledged
himself to the following:
1. That he would grant a further
cash bonus to all relumed soldiers.
2. That he would take Immediate
and effective steps to" lower the cost
of living. \
3. That he would devise taxation
that would bear more heavily upon
the rich and more lightly upon the
4. That he would compel the profiteers, who fattened upon the war, to
disgorge their profits Into the notional treasury.
5. That he would make sweeping
reductions in thc tariff, Including the
abolition of duties on all foodstuffs.
i. That he would inaugurate a
policy of retrenchment and secure
greater economy In the administration of public affairs.
To what extent has thlB programme
been executed? How have these
solemn pledges been fulfilled by the
Government uow lu power? For tbe
purpose of clarity we shall deal with
each plank In order, beginning with,
The Soldiers' Bonus: Not tho
slightest effort has ever beeu made
to implement this pledge. Notwithstanding that it was adopted unanimously by the National Liberal Convention of 1919, that it was incorporated as a plank in the partys platform, adopted at that time, that It
was further Incorporated ln the Liberal handbook circulated in the lato
campaign, that it was part and parcel
of Mr. King's election propaganda,
repeated again aud again ln his
press, and by his platform speakers,
it has never received even a moment's
consideration since the party came
into power. With the excuse that
the bonus policy was simply adopted
in the light of the conditions which
existed in 1919—an excuse whose falsity and dishonesty are betrayed by
the fact that the pledge was still
being given throughout tho whole ol
the campaign—Mr. King declared in
the House, in effect, that the promise
was but a "scrap of paper," that II
could not, and would not be fulfilled
Few more cynical repudiations of
political platform pledges can be

The Cost of Living: Tho cost ol

taken by Mr. King to deal with the
cost of living? What action to curb

in pre-election speeches? What has
been done nbout the 'trusts and combines" and the powcrlul plutocracies"

Personally, we do not.
If we of the earth were suddenly
and simultaneously to receive positive revelation of the events succeeding death, what might happen?
Suppose we learned that when the
brain goes out the end is here; that
physical death is the end of existence,
as some scientists claim.
The contemplation of death would
be gloomy Indeed. We could not enjoy this life because of the ever-
intruding thought of death and oblivion.
If, on the other hand, we had the
pr-'skive knowledge of a state of eternal happiness, freedom from all
human Ills ami disappointments — if
we knew it -we fear that a goodly
portion oi our valuable citizenry

Now Is The Time To Buy Coal And Demand
Only B.C. Product For Loyality and Economy
The Fallowing Is nn   Article  Taken
From iho New Vancouver
Weekly, "Facts."    •
Be COAL-WISE! Buy coal now,
while the price is low I Secure all
you can afford. Stock up your cellar.
You may not have another opportunity like this, for the present price of
coal is lower £han it has been for
years. The market ia overstocked.
The consumer can now save two or
three dollars a ton. Perhaps more.
But this cannot last much longer.
Coal values may rise any day. So
seizo this chance before lt Blips away
from you.
Apart from the suggestion ot economy In buying while the favorable opportunity of cheap coal Is present.
there ls another suggestion In buying
only the .British Columbia product
This is Important for several reasons.
-In the first place, the coal mines in
this province, especially on the Island, is superior In quality. It excells
ln endurance, cleanliness, heat, freedom from wastage and ashes and is
really the highest grade coal obtainable. It ls better, for, than most ftt
the imported coal, as any coal expert
can attest.
•liOj-ully to B. ('. Mines
Another excellent reaaon for demanding only Britiah Columbia coal
is the loyalty every local consumer
owes to the product of the home province. Por many mojiths the miners
have been working   only   half time.
"his Is'due, directly, to the fact that
jonsuriVere of retail and wholesale
quantities have been patronizing imported coal and fuel substitutes. If
thorough support were given to our
province coal products, the miners
of Vancouver Island und other coal-
hearing regions would be busy filling
orders riglit along, hut with the di
luiniBhing of business the mines have
been reduced to working barely two
or three days a week. Even nt this
rate, tho market in clogged with coal,
and that Is one reason why it is^so
cheap at this time. For this reason,
then,, every consumer should use
ludgment In buying tho best cOal—
which is B.C. ooal—and do his bit lu
helping to support the. B.C. miner and
Mie great mining Industry that
UTiioiinls lo so much.
Sloans Millions I'm' 11.1'.
The Importance of this fact Is ln-
estlniable, l'ause and figure It out
for yourself. When the mines of Vancouver Island and other colliery districts of the province are working full
time, illling big orders aud supplying
the demands 6f the province, it means
the diffusing of millions of dollars.
Thoso millions reach everywhere in
the province, in a direct or an indirect manner. There is not an industry
or an artery of community activity in
British Columbia that does not, somehow, derive some kind of benefit from
It. Tho money by no means goes
merely to the coal towns for wages,
but   ft   spreads   and   expands   and

'rickles into channels of trade. Vancouver merchants, somehow, get part
of it. Some of it goes into the banks
where it passes out -to farmersi in
loans. Much of it goes forth into industrial development. Wage-earners
of other Hues of effort get their share.
Merchants, artisans, wives, homes
and others that oue would not remotely associate with the coal Industry—
tliey all get their bit from this greal
Industry. It flows Into Innumerable
tributaries and those uillllona accomplish much in the maintenance nud
development of British Columbia.
With tho diminishing of the coal
oulput of this province there follows,
as a natural sequence, tho blooding of
a great Industrial uud financial artery
and the paralysis of one ot the province's greatest producing centres.
Lessoning of tlie coal production pal'
.des a great avenue of trade linked
with the mines. It bears a depressing impress upon practically everything one can name.
Unjust to Industry
Patronage of imported poal is like
patronizing a distant mail order house
and allowing tho. home merchant to
starve. There Is no real advantage
to be derived In buying Imported
coal. The whole advantage lies in
using, excluBlvcly, tho coal mined
right here is illogical, unloyal and
senseless, while showing a heartless
disregard for the rights of our miners
and our mines ot B.C. The collieries
of British Columbia would thrive if
thoy did nothing but supply the home
demands of domestic and industrial
UBe. They hardly nesd to depend upon shipments, but simply want loyal
support from local demands, then all
would be well with the mines and the
miners—and the highest quality ol
coal would be assured to homes, factories and other coal-using sources.
Something has been said of the
justice due to the B.C. miners. Wha>
about our dealers? They, too, have
their rights and merit the loyal support of the consumer. The dealers
have their money invested in this
business. They maintain wharves,
lighters, docks, yards, waggons, offices, warehouses and other features
of tbelr trade. They are spending
their money here as residents and
home-makers. They employ men who.
In their turn, spend their wages and
maintain homes here. Practically
every cent that goes to the local coal
dealer is spent here, and Is diffused
into other lines of commerce aud development. The coal dealer wants to
be loyal to the B.C.* coal mines, be

Cumberland & Union Waterworks Ob., Ltd,
Owing to the prolonged dry weather we lind 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 months, be faced  with a water famine.
In YOUR interests and for thc protection of YOUR property in'the event of a fire, we
find it necessary to bring into eifect immediately the following regulations:—
(1). Water must not be used for sprinkling or irrigating purposes except from the
hour of 6 a.m. to 8 a.m. and from 7 p.m, lo 9 p.m.
(2). The practice of using water for the purpose of watering sidewalks, streets, etc.,
must cease. Persons using 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 ln 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 fire on YOUR property.
Thanking you in anticipation of  your co-operation in this matter, we are,
Yours truly,
Managing Director,

Friday last on tho local diamond,
Cumberland Intermedialtes suffered
their lirst league defeat of the season
wheu the Japanese won a hard game
by tlle score of 7-3.
Both teama put up a good exhibition of baseball, the locala pulling
down three errors and the Japanese
one mlsplay. Although the Japa deserved tlieir victory, there Is no doubt
but that they had the breaks of the
game. Cumberland secured two double
hits and also a three-bagger, but their
hits were scattered, which accounts
for their Ineffectiveness.
The Japs secured their ilrst live
runs In the first stanza. Tanaka
walked and was chased to third on
Doi's double nnd came home - on
Hojo's single, which also advanced
Dol to third. Toyo reached first on
Robertson's error, Doi coming home.
Suyama singled advancing Toyo to
second, who scored on Toshio's single.
The next two men fanned, which appeared to Hunden about the only way
to atop the merry-go-round. The remaining two runs were secured in
the lucky seventh. Kajiyama walked
and was chased to second by Tanaka
on Little's error and came home when
Hunden slammed one past Farmer in
attempting to put out Dol. IIoj'o sacrificed Tanaka In for the final tally
the Inning ending when Togo flew
out to Mitchell and Kltasaki fanned.
The local boys secured their flrst
run In the third frame. Bennie
singled, was sacrificed to second by
McLean and came home when Ilob-
ertson slapped out a two-bagger. In
the following inning they chalked up
another when Richards singled. He
stole second, went to third on a wild
pitch and scored on 'Somervllle's
single. In thc eighth inning the locals scored another tally. Richards
singled, went to third on Hunden's
two-bngger and came home ou Rob.

Riglit nfter their defeat at the
hands of the Japanese the intermediates headed for Powell Itiver the
next morning. Tbelr gnme In Hint
town wns played as thc headline attraction iu connection with Uio sports
and was accorded even better support
than the Courtenay - Powell lllvoi
game In the evening. The paper-
makers tried out n different pltcllO'
from the youngster who pitched here.
Nevertheless, the Cumberland lads
knocked hlm out of the box in the
third inning. Cumberland played excellent bnaehall, making hut one error. Hunden, who pitched on Friday,
was not available for Ibe Powell River gome and Dnngerticld went on tlle
mound, allowing but four safe hits,
Tlie Cumberland crew, for the third
time this season, were robbed of <i
shut out In the last Inning. What appeared to be a certain foul ball was
clouted out for three bases, thc runner failing to touch third base; at
least, so the Cumberland first base
man thought. However, Umpire Doc,
Fletcher never noticed thc play and
the man reposed safely ou the third
sack until drlTen home by a double.

Nanaimo City soccer team on Saturday last won the right to represent
B.C. ln thc Connaught Cup series
when they defeated the Vancouver
I.L.A, team by a score of 3-0.
Nanaimo attacked from the start,
Dickinson missing narrowly In the
Ilrst few minutes, Play then went
down the field, but was soon back
again, the visitors finding lt almost
impossible to penetrate the home defence. Seven minutes aftor the start
Dickinson secured the ball near mid-
field and worked It up to about the
penalty line, when lie passed to Fowler,, who ln turn passed to Stobbart.
The visiting defence played hlm for
a shot, but he fooled them by passing
to Husband, and the ball was In the
i et before the goalie hud any chance
to intercept. Nanaimo kept up their
good work and for fifteen minutes
put in a rain ot* shots, many of them
barely missing -be net. At times the
visitors broke .way, but could get no
results, and uie half ended with the
home team one goal to the good.
The second half started with Nanaimo age In on the nggresslve. On a
free kick. Wylle placed the ball in
front of tho goal, Husband getting tho
play and registered number two when
only a few feet from the net, less than
two miuutes after the restart, Pol-
lowing 'liis score the visitors made
tbolr best showing of the day and for
twenty minutes had an even share of
the play, and at times keeping the
home defence busy clearing their goal
but could not succeed In their attempts and nothing resulted,
Nanaimo's third goal came about
ten minutes before time. Dickinson
received a pass, tricked Owens, and
after working the ball down almost
to the goal line, put over a beautiful
cross, Husband coming in on the run
met it fairly, making no mistake wltb
his shot.
One minute from time the visitors
made a desperate rush on the home
goal, Hughes partly cleared but trip
ped in doing so. O'Donnell rushed to
the rescue and while the hall was still
In the air, cleared over his head with
a brilliant kick. Many of the spectators claimed the ball was over the

others have been with us some time."
Talking with a busy housewife and
mother the other evening, we raised
the question as to what makes for
happiness in tbe home.
"Ob, tbere are very many Uttle
rocks in the matrimonial stream,
upon which the frail bark may go to
pieces," she answered wltb a smile.
"But If I were to specify one particular stone upon which there are the
greatest number of wrecks, I would
say 'lack of punctuality.'"
Punctuality is one of the greatest
essentials ln the home life. When
members of the family are late to
meals they upset the whole system
upon which the home runs, and work
a great hardship on the chief engineer in the kitchen. On the other
hand if breakfast Is late, all the family are out of gear for the day. A
bad get-away from the breakfast
table means a late arrival at the day's
lob and nearly always a grouch and
that brings on indigestion and. everything goes wrong all day. Is lt any
wonder, when nervous excitement has
developed before you have had a
chance to pull yourself together and
face the day's work calmly and normally?
Late to meals brings nagging,
grumbling, temper and tears, instead
of smiles and happy recitals of the
day's activities.
The woman's habit of punctuality
has much to do with the happiness of
the home, and she Is entitled to the
same consideration from the rest ot
the family.
