TOUCHED LIVE WIRE
AND GOT BAD SHOCK
James Halliday met with what
might have been a very serious accident on Thursday. He was helping to
string the service wire to the house
ht Mr. H. Thompson when he inadvertently took hold of a live wire
which caused him to be badly shocked
and burnt on the hands and arms.
INJURIES TO KENNY
AND HORNE LEAVE
HOME TEAM WEAK
Injuries received a couple ot weeks
ago, necessitated Kenny and Homo
of the Cumberland United soccer
team, taking a rest for the next week
or so. As the locals have a stilt game
on their hands to-morrow, the absence
of these two sterling players will be
greatly mlsstd. Jock Campbell will
also be an absentee for tbls game.
Realising that Nanaimo City are a
hard team to beat, the executive ot
the local team have chosen as strong
an eleven as possible. The following
beln gseiected to represent tbem.
Wilson, Stewart, Collier, Brewster,
Conti (Capt), Monahan, Milligan,
Plump, Fowler, Hltchens, Harrison,
Res. Patterson.
TOOL-HOUSE WAS
SET ON FIRE
On Monday It was discovered that
the toolhouse at No. 3 dam of the
Cumberland Waterworks had been set
on lire by some maliciously inclined
person and was totally destroyed.
Other wanton acta had been committed and the Provincial police are Investigating.
On Friday morning, last week, there
was a lire at Mrs. Bradley's and thc
engine turned out In record time. The
children bad set Are to the mattress,
but lt was quickly extinguished with
the chemicals.
You'll need a Ford Closed Car this
winter.
We understand our local Brass
band has suspended practices as most
of the members appear to have either
lost interest In music or are too much
engaged otherwise to attend rehearsals.
This Is much to be regretted, for
they have a good set of instruments
and if all put their shoulders to the
wheel there ls no reason why Cumberland should not hold as proud a record for musicians as for sportsmen.
Surely there is soce enthusiastic
bandsman among them who, if given
loyal support, could bring the band
to the front again. Winter time is
just when opportunity occurs for
steady practice, in order to be ready
tor the summer programmes.
Now, bandsmen, wake up, and let
the citizens have the pleasure of hearing some ot the old-fashioned carols
this coming Christmas time. You may
depend upon lt that there will be no
lack of support by tbe citizens if the
band shows Itself worth helping.
Why not get together again and put
In full rehearsals for a few Sunday
evening concerts alternating with the
Orchestral Sunday concerts ?
Von Stroheim Picture Declared
to be Very Artistic and
Startling.
When are we to have the pleasure
of hearing the newly-organised male
voice quartette ?
The Orchestral Society are holding
their next Sacred Concert on Sunday,
at 8.30 p.m.
The popular concert announced by
the C. A. O. Society for the 9th of
November has been unavoidably postponed to Tuesday, the 14th November.
Tickets will be on sale shortly at
Marshall's Music Store, where patrons
may select reserved seats. The full
programme will be advertised In our

POTATO GROWERS*
ASSOCIATION MEET
very enthusiastic meeting of the
Potato Growers' Association of the
Comox District was held In the Comox
Creamery on Thursday evening. It
was a very representative gathering of
the farmers who decided to send exhibits of the various kinds of potatoes,
also Burbank, grown in the Comox
Valley, to the Fair at Grand Forks
which will be held during the coming
month.
The Comox Valley is gaining fame
throughout the province for their
splendid potatoes. Several members
ol the association decided to specialize
on certain kinds of potatoes ami
standardize the spuds ot the district.
"Foolish Wives," Universale costly
photodrama of life and intrigue at
Monte Carlo, which opens at the Ilo-
Ilo Theatre next Monday and Tuesday, bas been heralded as the costliest
and biggest picture ever screened. It
lives up to its promises. Never has
there been such a kaleidoscopic array
ot beautiful settings and artistic
photography combined with such
adept characterization and careful direction.
Erich von Stroheim, the author, director and star of the picture, has
made a screen masterpiece. Whatever faults It may have, and no picture ls perfect, they are submerged by
the force of the theme, by the realnes.i
oi' the atmosphere, and by the vivid
portrayals ot von Stroheim and his
supporting cast.
It is easy to see where Universal
spent the $1,103,736 the picture is said
tc have cost. Monte Carlo, Its principal buildings, its crowds, its activities, and Its very spirit, have heen
transferred to the screen for "Foolish
Wives," The film company admits
spending 3421,000 alone for the elaborate sets built In California in duplication of buildings, parks, villas and
promenades at Monte Carlo,
The colorful settings, the activities
of the noted pleasure resort, nre
merely backgrounds for the Impelling
story of "Count" Sergus Karamzin,
renegade Russian captain, debonair
adventurer and consummate villian.
The role of the bogus Count is played
by von Stroheim himself. The character Is so well drawn that you hate
him—hate him—and rejoice when he
comes to a bad end.
Colorful Characters.
The Count and hlB accomplices, two
Russian "princesses," played by
Maude George and Mae Busch, are
International crooks, who prey upon
wealthy visitors to Monte Carlo. .They
occupy a costly villa which Is a ren-
devous for adventurers, and at the
| opening of the picture are planning to
victimize Andrew J. Hughes, newly
arrived Envoy from America, and his
wife.
The dapper and polished Count, In
his flashy dress uniform, quickly
arouses the Interest of Mrs. Hughes.
who is pretty snd frivolous with a
somewhat neglectful husband. Ser-
glus and the bogus princesses, posing
as bis "cousins," sponsor Hughes and
his wife through the gaieties of the
Mediterranean pleasure resort .
"Foolish Wives" is a picture that
will go down in screen history.

IN THIRD TRIAL OF
CHINESE MURDER CASE

Cumberland last November, following
a disagreement wltb Wong O. Sang.
Conflicting evidence failed to convince this third Jury that the latter
fired the shot.
Scores of Chinese from Cumberland
and the mainland attended the trial.

Approach Collieries Co. for Wye.
The credit for promoting a rugby
club here Is due Harry Jackson, Allan
R. Nunns and Tom Scott, who talked
rugby here for some time and called
the meeting for last Saturday. There
were many who could not be present,
but those who were present were very
enthusiastic and lost no time ln fotm-
ing a club.
The lirst problem dealt with was
the securing of grounds, and it was
decided that the only grounds suitable
were the old football grounds at the
Canadian Collieries ID) Ltd. railway
wye. A committee consisting of Tom
Scott, Allan Nunns and Alex. Denholme was appointed to interview Mr.
C. Graham to see it it would be possible to secure these grounds as a
playing field.
Membership Foe, tlM.
A ball will be ordered as soon aa
possible to start practising with. The
club needs some Initial capital and a
membership fee of 31 was agreed
upon.
The Athletic Club will be the headquarters ot the club provided the
board of management give their consent. This Is the most suitable place
for meeting, and the dressing-room
and showers will be very convenient
to thc team.
Tbe secretary tens Histmcted to
write the Courtenay Athletic Association to urge them to organise a fifteen
in that district. Games cun be secured with Nanaimo and possibly
Parksvllle, and should Courtenay get
started there will lie lots of teams to
secure games with.
Good Chance for Beginners.
A couple of the younger blood were
present and wondered what chance
there was for an intermediate team.
Those present took the view that they
would be welcome at the practices at
any time, nnd if enough youngsters
were secured an Intermediate team
could be organized. Any one who ls
anxious to join anl learn the gams
is quite welcome and are invited to
the next meeting.
Among those present were: James
Quinn, Tucker James, J. W. Tremlett,
A. It. Nunns, Chas. Finch, T. W.

"QUALITY AND SERVICE"
1,633 Visitors in Three Months
Early In June last, at the suggestion
if Mr. J. P. Lewis, our efficient road
foreman, a "Visitors' Book" wa*
placed In a box nailed to a big cedar
tree overlooking the now famous
Campbell River Falls, tor registering
the number ol people who visit this
beautiful scene during the summer
months. The Idea of placing such a
book at the Falls was to prove to our
authorities the great necessity of a
good road to this resort and to show
them by actual statistics the number
of people who use this road when the
tourist season Is at its height. In
spite of a very bad year, owing to the
large number of forest lires and dense
clouds of smoke prevailing everywhere throughout Vancouver Island
in the summer months, 1,633 visitors
registered their names during June,
July   hnd   August.    Mauy   of   the
tourists, In addition to signing their
names, wrote enthusiastically of the
wonderful beauty of the Falls and incidentally made some caustic remarks
ou the condition of the two and-a-liali*
mile stretch from the main road to
the cataract. The book is interesting
in showing tlle many countries from
which people travel to visit tills delightful island, and the fact that 1.63.1
lourists trom the United States, the
United Kingdom, Egypt, China and
other far-off lands visited this beauty
ipot in one of our "bad years," it ts
,afe to say that In normal years there
.ire at least 3,000 vlstors to the Camp-
jell Kiver Falls. It is to be hoped
hut ill the next session of the Legis-
.aturc a special appropriation will be
.uadc to give our visitors a good roa'l
to this greatest attraction on Vun-
couves' Island.
Visitors from Cumberland
Mr. and Mrs. Stockand, and Teddy,

the visitors called at the radio station
and were much interested in the new
sensation.
Radio Expert Visits River.
Mr. I). Brown, tho radio expert of
Courtenay, came up to Campbell
Itiver on Sunday afternoon to tost out

in picking up many of the cities of
the United States, such as Salt Lake
City, San Francisco, Seattle, Portland.
Reno and Tacoma, were very satisfactory. The voices and music reaching Campbell River very clear and
loud. Tlie installation of a radio-set
in the Publicity office has caused
great interest to be taken In this
latest form of amusement, and the
number of radio fans is increasing
rapidly.

IN THE OCTOBER WOODS
A stroll through the October woods
always is exhilerating and Inducive to
thought. A walk ln thc woods is invigorating at this time of the year
and as you wander under the stretching limbs you come to the conclusion
that men and trees aro very much
alike.
From reckless youth to ruminating
age—from the age of Intoxicating 11
lusions to the chill of cold reason--
from the roseleat of romance to the
moBS of rheumatism- from green ox
perieuce to ripe  judgment-men   and
trees alike suggest the span of life.
The most venerable of all animate
.   or Inanimate objects Is the oak tree
With its high top, bald with dry an-
tlquite, and Its boughs covered  with
1 mosB, the oak stands like a living stn-
'" tute that no mortal can build.   Tako
'' this same tree when young ami tap It
" until it ls twenty, and when it reaohas
forty It will be a barklcss, branchless.
blighted trunk.
The oak has lived through ail tin
years because its life lias been regular, in accordance with tho laws of
nature. Men who lead regular lives.
barring accidents, will live to a rip^
old age. Sap youth and you shorten
' years.
Every person, young or old. Ij Interested In the question of how long
' he is going to live, but who wants to
live with gout, dyspepsia, rheumatism
and  locomotor  ataxia?   Youth seeks
plenty of life, reckless tun and a good
time.    Age  wants  good  health, real
'happiness and a long life.   Enjoy the
' ambitions and excitements  of  youth
f[SJ
and Its indiscretions, sap the vitality
from the young oak, and you must endure the penalty.
Yes, men and trees are very much
alike. The sun will paint the color
on your years, the stars will continue
t'o shine on your silvery head, depending wholly on how you treat your
youth.

HALLOWE'EN
. Hist!  be still!   'tis  Hallowe'en!
B". That night  of  nights   when   elves
and  witches   are   abroad,  when  thc
'"'tiny totB hold tight to daddy's hand
"and gaze with fear and wonder at th-;
masquerade™ on the village streets.
Not so long ago Hallowe'en was the
night when boys played mischievous
pranks,   carrying   away   gates   ami
" everything else that could be pried
looBe. But, In keeping with thc ever-
changing customs in this land of ours.
£ we now give Ihe evening to masquerade parties. We have toned down our
Hallowe'en pranks to a considerable
degree.
For many, many years it has been
the   custom   over   ull   the   world   to
.< build bonfires, to keep off cvit spirits
on Hallowe'en; and this Is the night
of all nigliis to entertain friends with
stunts similar to those performed two
hundred years   ago.    On   this   night.
, fortunes are told, games are played,
and If It so happens that your hirtli-
t  day falls on Hallowe'en, then you may
even  be able to hold con ersu  wilh
fairies—bo   goes   the   ancient   superstition.
But what was once a ceremony of
(   belief,   has   now   become   a   thing of
• sport, of welcome sport In a day of
such serious thought, and work, and
sense of responsibility, that any excuse for Bport should be laid hold of;
so that now Its observances are all a
Jest which the young people lay upon
themselves, not In the least believing
In the consequences, only half hoping
thore may be something ln II, and
saying to themselves that stranger
things have happened.
So get out the old false faces, the
noise-makers and jiiln tlie merry
throng. Mingle with llie goblins am!
dance with the dunces. Put aside
your dignity ami your responsibilities
for a single night. Sing tlie old song,
"Backward, turn backward, oh, Time,
in your llight; make me a child again
Just for to-night." Don't show a
grouch If some happy little lad pulls
at your doorbell, or showers com on
your window panes. Let youth be unrestrained on Hallowe'en, so long as
real damage Is not done. Get Into
the spirit of the occasion yourself, and
remember that the one unpardonable
sin on Hallowe'en is to frighten a
little child. The fears of children are
very real and a false face to the bain-
Is a terrible thing.
So, have your fun and frolic,—but
use good Judgment.

PURE CUSSEDNESS.
I
The editor of this paper believes
hat a little pleasure is Just as Important as sleep or prayer. And, with
his start, there should be no reason
ior putting us Into the prude class.
The man who does not take some
recreation will some day take to regret, The mind must be occasionally
unused aad tlie body frequently rested, but It Is the choice of amusement
md what we call "rest" that should
have careful consideration.
The other night a friend took us
to a girl show In a neighboring city—
a suggestive show that could appeal
only to a man whose highest ambition
hi to be amused in the basement of
liis brain.
This show was designed to strip the
earth of every flower of virtue and to
send a man home through the back
alley. There was not an entertaining,
worth-while thought tn the whole progs-am.   Just revel and rot.
Amusement lulls the faculties—bu:
real entertainment awakens the understanding. Our point is this: Why
pay two dollars a. ticket to awaken
tlie devil lu you? Thc devil in most
of us often shows without any coaxing.

The Cumberland Basketball Association held a meeting last Monday.
The meeting was originally Intended
for Saturday, but to allow the committee Interviewing the board ot
management ot the Athletic Club to
make their report to the original
meeting, was postponed till Monday.
Certain Improvements In the Band
hall, which hitherto has been very

the three'leagues will get started not

Arthur Lee and A. S. Denholme,
president and secretary respectively,
ot the association, who were Instructed at the last meeting to Interview

They stated the management had
given them a very sympathetic hearing, and Mr. Tremlett Informed the
meeting that he had been Instructed
to write the association that all requests with but one exception had
been granted. The studding which
has been bare before, will be boarded
over -with ehlplap all round the hall
to a height of six feet This will allow the players to have a little more
confidence In themselves ln the ends
and sides.
In the spectators gallery, too, thero

with a wire netting which will save
some Inconvenience to them. The hall
will be heated by the spectators' gallery, which will be the most appreciated Improvement from their standpoint. Two rows of seats will also be
added, and there Is no doubt that they
will be needed, as basketball is due
for a big boost here.
Basketballerg Anxious.
The material and the labor for this
Job is being supplied by the Athletic
Club. Those present at the meeting
felt so anxious to get the leaguo
started, everyone present volunteered
to go up to the Band Hall and supply
most of the labor themselves.
The Athletic Club was also approached In regard to the gate receipts. Last year the Athletic Club
took 60 per cent ot the gate receipts
and the league 40 per cent. The association would like this arrangement
reversed, but the Athletic Club management stated It was not In. their
power to change this arrangement
which was the condition set by the C
C. (D) Ltd. ln handing over the Band
Hall. The association was Informed
that the matter was not shelved by
any means and the arrangement may
yet be altered.
Five T's Entry Accepted.
The senior line-up Includes the
Firemen, Owls and Keystones. The
Five T's of last year's fame, applied
for a berth In the league, as their
entry was not received by Oct 14th.
Mr. J. Cameron, of tbe Firemen, who
had two teams entered, stated It would
be necessary to withdraw a Flremen'B
team if the Five T's entered, as that
team would be made up of players
they Intended playing for them. Mr.
Mortimer said they probably would
not have signed on with the Firemen
in any case, and the Five T's entry
wns accepted. The Intermediate age
limit was rescinded and any one who
has not played senior beMre will be
eligible. This was necessary to get
a third team in the league, only two
having entered—the High School and
Bevan. A third team, It was stated,
could easily be raised if the age limit
wus taken off.
Olrls, Do Be Careful!
The ladles' quintettes are even more
anxious than the men. The W. H. 0.
Club are all primed for the battle, and
Graham Cup For Juvenile League
Youngsters Start Soon.—Medals
For Junior and Juvenile
League.
The Junior Football Club held a
well attended meeting last Friday
evening In the Athletic Club. It was
decided to start the Juvenile League
with the Oraham Cup aB the trophy
for the competition. The age limit will
be 18 years and under. The following
teams are entered: High School,
Cumberland Public School, Courtenay
Public School, Union Bay, and the
Athletic Rangers, a local team.
Home and Hone (James.
The secretary Informed the meeting
that he had received information to
the effect that the Oraham Cup was
for Juvenile competition. The Juvenile age limit was raised to 18 years
and under to enable all the teams to
enter. This enabled both the Athletic Rangers and Union Bay to enter
teams who would have had to refrain
from entering under the strict definition of Juveniles.
Home and home games were de-
elded on, and when the teams were
put ln the bat for tho drawing ot the
first games, the High School and
Cumberland Public School were
brought together. Courtenay was fortunate enough to draw the home game
with Union Bay, and the Athletics
Rangers got the bye. The remainder
of the schedule, with dates, will be
worked out by Secretary Weir.
Will Dlae Junior League.
It was felt by the meeting that the
secretary had enough work with the
Junior League, and H. Carey of the
High School Club was selected to assist with the Junvenlle League. Each
club will be charged the nominal sum
of one dollar as an entrance fee.
Those present thought that the
youngsters were as deserving of
medals aa any of the senior teams, and
gold medals will be obtained tn some
manner for the winners of the Junior
League; while an effort will be at
least made towards securing them for
the winners of the Juvenile League.
This ls a big undertaking for the
league to take on hand, as a dozen
medals or more cost a lot of money
and everyone should do their little bit
to help the Junior League to reward
the boys. The league will take the
matter up at their next meeting.
Meanwhile, quotations are being secured on the medals.
Those Present.
In the absence of A. Kay, who was
a little late lu arriving, Colin Camp-
hell occupied the chair, with Mr. Weir,
of Bevan, reading the minutes. The
following were also present: O. Weir,
R and J. Walker, W. Keenan,
Bevan; P. Reid, A. Kay, Mr. Campbell, Union Bay; C. Fraser, H. Carey,
High School; H. Waterfield, W. White,
Cumberland Juniors; J. Tremlett,
Athletic Rangers, and A. H. Webb, of
the Public School team.

split the points Sunday. Fifty-fifty—
that's fair enough, isn't it?
The High School lads will have to
play on Sundays, evidently. Some of
the lads certainly are to be commended on their rigid adherence to their
principles.
It certainly puts the promoters of
the league In a queer position when
two teams waste a week-end fixture
on this account.
tbe High School girls under Allan
Nunns, are all ready for the fray,
while a third team Is entered, too, but
feel a little bashful to come out witu
a name. This gives a three-team
Ladles' and Intermediate League
which will work nicely with a four-
team Senior League.
Applications were received from
Courtenay and Comox Intermediate
teams, but they were not accepted as
the association Is only running a City
league.
Local fans should give a little support to tlie juvenile boys. They are
only youngsters, but are our great
football players of the future.
Lovers of the hoop game will soon
see their favorite sport and with much
more comfort and convenience than
last year. It certainly waB cold last
year.
Nothing has been done yet, but it
soems as If the side-lines will be dolls)

ior a faster game.
The games will be played on thc
siime evenings as last year: Wednesdays and Saturdays. Come early and
ovoid the rush on "Ladles' Night!"
The ruggers had one of the most
successful organizing meetings ot any
athletic organization In the city. Over

There seems little doubt but that
a couple of games will be witnessed
this season at the wye, which is an
Ideal rugby ground although It Is on

You Auto Owners
If you're wise you have that car of yours—whether it
be a $800 Ford or a $5,000 Cantafford—overhauled
once in a while. You don't wait until cylinders begin
knocking to suspect that something is wrong. You
listen to the hum of your motor and right away you
adjust that skip, however slight it may be.
You learned long ago that it's cheaper to tighten a bolt
than to buy a spring; far less expensive to have a short
circuit straightened out than to put in a battery. You
put the hydrometer on her faithfully.
How about that Human Motor
of yours?
Is it running on five cylinders, when all six should be
hitting perfectly to carry your {pad ?
Are your valves choked with carbon ?
Is your carburetor adjusted to just the right mixture ?
Looked after your compression- lately ? Are others
shooting past you on the road ?
Are you running on a flat tire and taking a chance of
being towed home some fine day ?
ARE YOU GOING TO WAIT UNTIL THE MACHINE
STOPS BEFORE CONSULTING AN EXPERT ON
THE HUMAN MOTOR ?
YOU are the man that knows best when your machine
balks and gets cranky. You're the driver—every day
in the year. If you're wise you'll consult an expert
when you notice that first lack of power.
Your Chiropractor can put his finger on the source of
your motor tgroubles. He'll run down that short circuit and get that missing cylinder to " hitting." He'll
tell you if you have a "dead" spark plug.
He'll adjust your carburetor so that human machine
of your will fairly "sing" with energy.
And it's profitable to adjust the difHcuIt}' now. Don't
wait until your motor stops. Don't take a chance of
being towed home some day.

How To Play Basketball
(By Observer).
III.—FORWARDS (Continued).i
Basket Shooting.
No other phase of the   game   de-1
mands the same technique or rigidity
oi torm as basket shooting.   Without
the proper knowledge or understanding of thia fact, the player is likely to
iovelop personal peculiarities which
. e frequently quite detrimental. The
proper form in Bhooting can be readily
likened to the swing of a golf club
ji of a baseball bat.   The greatest and
:sost satisfactory results can not bo
■iitaliied unless rigidity of   form   ls
irlctly   adhered   to,   although   occa-
oually a player may use some lndl-
.uual   characteristics   to   advantage.
A player who possesses a natural eye
lor shooting but poor form should be
carefully coached.
Basket i-hootlng during a practice
or a game demands concentration
which establishes a proper co-ordination between the mind and the muscles governing the shooting. The objective is to got the niusclua under
such control that the desired action
comes automatically. I have watched
players waste hours In basket shoot
Ing practice because their actions
were the result of physical move
mentB only; not the combination of
mind and muscle. Deliberate shooting is the only shooting worth while
Players should be impressed immediately with the relative size of the
diameter of the ball and that of the
basket. The hoop is eighteen Inches
In diameter and the ball is nine or
ten Inches, thus leaving a clearance
of four Inches for a ball dropping directly to the centre from above.
Science of Shooting.
It ls a self-evident fact, therefore
that the more direct the drop of tlie
ball from above the more chance for
the throw to be successful. Oood
shooting would therefore seem to demand a highly looped ball, the downward motion starting at some distance
above the basket In order that the
drop be direct and straight. A ball
thrown on a straight line or at a
sharp angle to the basket has little
chance of passing through the hoop
because of the elliptical shape of the
basket.
Loop Shot Best
Though there are various forins
used in shooting, the "overhand loop"
shot Is universally recognized as the
most scientific. It should be used foi
long, medium and short-distance
shooting. It affords players a com
paratlvely safe start, as the ball is
raised and pushed upward and forward, leaving the hands somewhere
above the face. This shot is difficult
to block and practically impossible to
Intercept.
A player in the act of shooting
should never look down at the ball
to see that it Is properly adjusted:
nor should he look up to see the ball
leave his hands. The knowledge of
theae things must be gained by practice through the sense of touch. Loss
of time ln adjusting the ball may
mean a blocked shot, and tbe eyes
muat be employed in seeking the exact
location of the hoop.
Ease and confidence will come to a
player lt he but concentrate on the
rim of the basket nearest to him and
loops the ball so that on its downward
course it will just clear that rim and
fall through the opening. On it hitting the rim lt may rebound to the
backboard and fall again into the
baaket. If the shot is entirely for the
backboard, the ball must hit the exact
•pot at right angles. The backboard
should never be used intentionally
with tbe loop shot. Its use for the
glancing shot will be discussed In the
next article.
There is another shot often used In
basketball, one employed by those
who are new to the game. It Is the
underhand shot, executed by grasping the hall with the lingers and
thumbs and swinging the arms from
between bent knees. Tills is probably
the most natural shot and Is certainly
the most easily acquired, but It Is
practically useless as It Is ensllv
blocked.
by a dribble for this shot is essen-
.uilly an under-the-basket shot.
lt Is a shot that permits many varl-
a'ions. It can be either with one hand
alone or with both hands. I have
seen many forwards who shoot baskets with one hand while standing off
the guard with the other. It can also
be effectively used by bringing the
ball up over the right shoulder with
both hands and playing a direct bank
without English.
For Short Shots.
Short shots made directly in front
>i or from the left side of the basket
ire made by jumping with arms extended, the ball being lifted up and
oiled off the linger tips jUBt over the
im of the basket. The start of the
luow is naturally made with two
muds, but the left hand is usually
,'lthdiawii before the completion of
the throw.
When coming in under the basket
;'iom the loft Bide tlle player may receive a puss too close under the bas-
ket. At such times an additions
step, with a sharp half turn of th,
jody to the left, will bring him lute
i position facir:; the basket on tin
ither rliot, giving 111.a an opening foi
ho Lackboaid shot. The ball is then
hoi ills, aid from the waist with ti
'harp wrist and forearm movement
. jii,.liar shot U u *eii when coming ii
.'rom the right.
It is well to remember in connection
with the backboard shot that all backboards are not constructed of the
iame material, and that the rebound
ot the ball will vary with the hardness of the material used. Some are
of soft wood, others hard, and still
others are of plate glass.   A few test
shots with the ordinary amount of
spin will soon acquaint you with tht
amount of rebound to be expected
from a strange backboard. Asllgh!
twist of the ball will not affect its
course If it Is evenly exerted, but s
jail sent spinning through tho air is
very apt to rebound sharply at different angles when striking the backboard.
Long Shots Und.
Long shots have won many games.
but they should not be resorted to unless a team is unable to penetrate the
opposing defence or unless the end of
playing time is very near. They are
usually forced shots, especially wher
used by young players who have nol
the strength to throw a great distance. The bad habits which ure
likely to develop from long shooting
arc banging the backboard and un uneven exertion of .strength in the arm
Alien throwing the ball. Player,
should at all times guard against tlie
over use of the right or left arm, n:
here must be an even push exerted li
NOTICE
IV.-FORWARDS (Continued).
Shooting.
There is another type of shot that
li, very much In vogue among experienced basketball players, though
Its effectiveness depends to a large extent on the ability of the team to work
the ball under the basket. I refer
to the glancing shot off the backboard
which Is a sure point-getter if the
forward has mastered the technique
ot giving suflicient "English" to the
hall.
The shot Is made by giving the ball
a alight turn of the wrist just as il
leaves the hand, thus causing it to
rotate against the backboard and rebound Into the hoop. The distance between the player and the basket
should be decreased wherever possible
NOTICE is hereby given that all
persons having claims against

GEORGE CHARLES DAVIS,
11 Executor.
ihe flight of the ball is to he straight
and true.
Following up shots is an Important
offensive act as weil as a defohsive
one. One should go time and direc.
his movements during the flight of the
ball as to be in an advantageous position to secure the rebound or to guard
an opponent who has secured tho ball.
Short steps and an action of alertness
will help to make this action possible
Too quick a start will bring the
player under the basket beforo the
ball has descened. The rebound muii
be jumped for and the ball secured at
the height of the jump and then tap
ped, pushed or shot before the flooi
Is touched. One's position on uccurlnr,
the ball will determine which cciu:m.
must be adopted.

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 p.jo has gradually brought now
labor-saving devices lo 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 tho 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 sis any enameled utensil, rust resisting, cleanly. Racks and rack holders removable.
Elements swing on hinge:,, so that entire surface of
oven is clear for cleaning.
The Oven has a 1% in. insulation around the side
and a V/-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
ia on or oil*.
Switches for elements plainly marked.
Extra plug for other Electric Appliances.

the flrst words ever sent over a wire
on the North American continent.
The words were transmitted by telegraph over a wire stretched trom
Baltimore to Washington, D.C, over
eighty years ago, and since that tlm.'
even the most remote places all over
this continent and practically ln every
country In the world, are now In direct touch with all the great centres
throughout the universe. The wire
between Baltimore and Washington,
and the Instruments used, were crude
affairs compared with the wonderful
machines used In these days of rush
and bustle. Thos. Edison, the world-
famed inventor of numerous useful
and highly valuable instruments and
machines, was at one time a telegraph
operator, and lt ls due to his genius
that tremendous strides were made In
the past forty years ln perfecting
communication by telegraph throughout this continent. The next important step in bringing the peoples ot
various countries In the world ln
touch with each other was the laying
of telegraph cables under the ocean
the longest cable at the present tim*!
being the Pacific Cable Board's Una
running from Bamtield Creek, on the
west coast of Vancouver Island, to
Fanning Island, a distance of 3,500
miles. The Ilrst successful ocean
cable was stretched across the Atlantic from a place called Valentla in
Ireland, to a little Ashing vintage ln
Newfoundland named Heart's Content. This cable was laid in 18G6,
and was considered at that time one
of the wonders of the world. Hundreds of wealthy and famous people
came from all parts of the world to
watch tbe landing of the Ilrst cable
that meant so much to the progress
of the world. The American poet,
Whistler, wrote a poem on this great
event, and novelists such as Ballan-
tyne wrote Interesting books for
boys on this wonderful feat. To make
the story still more interesting was
the fact that the "Great Eastern," the
largest ship in the world at that time,
laid the cable acroBs the Atlantic, the
only Job ever attempted by this woar
ster veasel. Many people living on
Vancouver Island remember this old
ship which laid   In   the   Mersey  for

many years and was finally scrapped

Transmitting the human voice over
a wire lu the early seventies by the
late late Professor Graham Bell, who
died at Baddock, Cape Breton, only a
couple of months ago, was the third
great step In the method of communication and was quite revolutionary
in its relation to business all over this
continent, and there is hardly a place
ot importance in the world which has
not a telephone system installed.
This Invention was treated more or
less as a joke and a toy when Bell
endeavored to raise money for the installation of the machines for use in
a commercial way, and lt was due to
the late Emperor Don Pedro, of
Brazil, that its great importance wm
realized and brought into universal
use.
Wireless   telegraphy,   Invented   by
Marconi In the nineties, was perhaps
one  of  the  most  wonderful   of  all
methods of communicating from one
place to another, and of special importance in its relation to shipping.
Through the Inauguration of this sys-'
tern, although   but a   few  years  In
existence,   many   thousands   of   lives
have been saved from stranded and
burning ships at sea, and it is to the
everlasting credit of the men who act
as operators on these boats that they
have never shown a craven spirit in
the face of danger end in many Instances have sacrificed their lives to
save others.    The writer remembers
well when Marconi was at St. John's,
Newfoundland, and, seated at his instruments in the famous Cabot tower
near the entrance of the harbor, received from the west coast of England the letter "S" only from the signals   that   were   being   transmitted
across the mighty ocean.   The reception of the lone letter was suflicient
evidence to the great Inventor that l(
one letter could be transmitted across
the Atlantic there was no reason why
whole messages should not be picked
up from the air.   From that time to
the present everybody knows of the
wonderful advances made in wireless
work throughout the world, and people  are  beginning to   wonder  whnt
science will give them in the years to
come.    Wireless telephony, which  is
practically but a few months old, is.
without doubt, the most marvellous of
oil the developments in the way of
communication,    for    through    this
method the general public are beginning to appreciate to the fullest extent the great benefits that this invention will confer upon them.   Not
only Is the human voice transmitted
through hundreds of miles of space
but the strains of sweet music come
to one as from another and a happier
world.    At  the  moment ot   writing,
with the orthodox head-set of phones
to his ears, the author Ib listening lo
that beautiful old song "Annie Laurie"
sung by a lady  in  Medford, Oregon,
and whose fine voice comes perfectly
clear and sweet through the hundreds
ot miles of space between the Oregon
town and Campbell Kiver.   No wonder
everybody   Is   writing   and   talking
radio,, for through this means no man
or woman or child in the most remote
corners   of   the   continent of North
America will be out of reach ot the
latest and best produced In the musical world.   Through   this   wonderful
agency people living in the wilderness
or In the wildest  and   most   distant
places of our great Dominion will be
always in touch with the centres of
activity, and the news of the world
will be wafted to them through the
ether, making their existence tar happier than before the advent of this
greatest of all Inventions.
