Tbe}* Ho Things Differently Here
Things totally different from thc doings in the Terminal City occurred
here last Sunday in the Soccer gamo
between the Cumberland team and the
Nanaimo Veterans. It was a miserable day for football, the rain coming
down In torrents all through the game
The players must have been in a deplorable condition and consequently
not feeling any too jubilant, yet dot
spite these conditions the game was
clean and uny minor fouls that did
crop up did not affect either set of
players. Tbe home team scored two
goals in the first half. Turner bagging both counters. At half time hot
coffee was served to both teams—-a
much better procedure than pounding
one another about. There was even
enough coffee left over for a goodly
portion of tlie spectators to enjoy a
cup.
During the course of the second
half, which only lasted about thirty
minutes, Oraham scored u beautiful
goul for Cumberland who ran out
winners by n score of 3-0.

IT IS TOO LATE
How often we hear the son as ho
stands by the bier of his mother remark tbat "sho was ii got nl mother,
Ood bless lier!" How often we see
that son buy the first (lowers for his
mother afler she is placed in her
grave. The woman there hail borne
Mn' heal ami burden of life's long day,
ami no one had ever heard her murmur; her hand was quirk to reach oui
in ii helping grasp to those who fell
by tbe wayside, and ber feet were
swill on errands of merry; the heart
of her son had trusted her; he had
left her to long hours of solitude, while
he amused himself among scenes In
whicli site had no part. When boon
companions deserted bim, when 3ckle
affection selfishly departed, when pleasure palled, he went home to find ber
waiting for him. Children had been
born to tlie home, She hud reared
tbem, almost alone, and they were
gone. Her hand had led them to the
u ter most edge of the morning that
had no noon. Then she had comforted them and sent them out strong
and wholehearted, while she stayed at
home and -cried. Whal can a woman do but cry-and trust? She is
at rent now. But she could not die
until he had promised to "bear up.'"
She has been blest in giving, antl he
in receiving. It was an eveu partnership after all. She had been a good
mother to him, Oh. mun! man! why
did you not tell her so. when her ears
wero not dulled by death? Why wait
to say these words over a coffin wherein lips a wasted, weary, gray-haired
woman, whose eyes have so long held
that pathetic story t\\' loss and suffering and patient yearning, which
sn many women's eyes reveal—to
those who read. Why not bave made
the wilderness in her heart blossom
like the rose witli the prodigality of
your love? Now you would give
worlds were they yours to give-to
see the tears of joy your words would
once have caused, bejewelling the
closed windows of ber soul. ll in

"(JOO!) MORNING"
We always know the cheerful man
by his hearty "good morning,'* As
well might fog, and cloud, and vapor
hope to cling to the sun's illumined
landscape, as tbe blues and morose-
ik'hs to remain on any countenance
when 'he cheerful one comes along
with a hearty "good morning." Do
tmt forget tn sny it to your paronts
It costs you notbing. Say it cheerfully and with a smile; it will do you
good and do your friends good.
There's a kind of inspiration in every
"good morning," heartily and smilingly spoken, that helps to make hope
fresher and work lighter. It seems
nearly to mako the morning good, and
a prophecy nf a good day to rome
after it. While this is true of the
"good morning," it is equally true of
all kind aud cheerful greetings. They
cheer the discouraged, rest the tltv.l
one, mid somehow make the wheels
of time run moro smoothly.

We can quite understand how the
great run of men resent being chased
night ufter night hy their wives tu
one of those formal social gatherings
whirh are tlie nightmares of a man's
life, and which he utterly detests.
Only a very limited number of men
euro anything about what is accepted
today as "society." It is safe to say
that eight out of every ten men will
shun tbe most fashionable "event"
tbat society ran conceive of if any
plausible excuse presents itself. The
rauso of this aversion to society ou
thr part of a man is very simple. His
life during tbe day is un active one.
In proportion to ttie position he occupies in the business world he meeis
people all day long. From tbe moment ho reaches his desk until he
leaves it his mind is active; every
thought hr possesses must be alert;
his bruin is keyed t<> tho highest
strain, und during tlie entire duy be
must either think nr talk. By the
time the day Is dono, meeting people
has lost its charm for him, He Is
tired, aud he longs for the quiet ut-
mosphere of his home. He feels that
thore is but one thing his nature
craves and that Is rest . What pleasure is it to that mau then, to go into
a crowded room and talk for the rsst
of the evening to Miss It - and .Mrs.
s - ? Nine chances out of ten the
conversation will draw him into the
discussion of snme subject in which
lie has not the least interest. Is It
rest for him to talk to a dozen different people with whom it is more
than likely he has nothing whatever
in common? .Men realize what the
talk nf a crowded parlor means nowadays, and they naturally and most
pardonably shun it. To be introduced in a, meaningless manner to a
score of peoplo during an evening,
simply to keep "talk going and guests
circulating" is absolutely maddening
to n man whose stock of patience, at
Ms best, is very meagre.

INCREASING
SAVES RAILWAY'S MONEY
For tin* first time iu the history of
Manitoba, old-timers declare, not one
snow-plough or linger has tranversod
the lines of tlle Canadian .National
Hallways in that province for the first
two winter months. The light snowfall so far this season means a saving of many thousands of dollars for
the National System.
Manitoba has undergone a marked
change in dairying within the last two
years, more farmers having switched
to that branch of farming than in all
previous history of the province, ac
cording to Prof. O, W. Wood, of Manitoba Agricultural College, ln Bpeas-
Ing before the Manitoba Dairy Association in convention at the Fort Garry
hotel, Winnipeg, last week. The professor viewed the change In the light
was an indication of a sudden and
of a greal benefit to the west, as it
pronounced trend towards mixed
farming.

A  late report of a record-breaking
crop comes from the Maidston district
A new oil lamp that gives an amazingly brilliant, soft white light, even
better than gas or electricity, has
been tested by the U. S. Government
and 35 leading universities and found
to be superior to 10 ordinary oil lamps.
It burns without odor, smoke or noise
—no pumping up, is simple, clean,
safe. Burns 04% air and ti'-' common kerosene (coal oil.)

400 BILLION BOARD
FEET OF STANDING
TIMBER IN B. C.
The spectacular increase of 34 per
cent, in the amount of timber scaled
in   British   Columbia  last  year  over
1922 Is a forceful illustration of the
Immense value of lumbering and allied industries in this province.    The
total scale in  1923  was  2,542,280,000
board feet as compared with 1,899,-
159.000 board feet the preceding year.
Federal figures, admittedly conservative, place the standing timber of
the province at 360 billion board feet.
The figure is generally given by the
provincial authorities and timber experts as 400 billion feet.      In  1922
the loss through forest fires was very
heavy.     Last year, happily, lire losses
were but a small part of those of the
former "dry" year.
The forest branch ls credited wlm
j an efficient conservation policy, In so
j far as protection against lire Is con-
; cerned, but even at that, the annual
j waste through tlle ravages of the ilo-
I straying element is heavy.
J    Three years ago the total capacity
| of   provincial   saw-mills   was   placed
< at 2,500,000,000 board feet per annum.
i Last year's  scale  slightly  surpassed
! that figure .but many new mills hove
been established; so that the present
i capacity is probably three billion feet
j per year.     Adding a mean  average
I loss through fire of a billion feet, the
| capital stock of timber is being cle-
I pletcd by approximately  four billion
' feet each year.     On the* otlier hand,
the annual increase of British Colum-
j bla  timber  through  growth  alone Is ,
placed at eight billion feet.     A por- j
, tiou of this Increase naturally occurs
j Inremote districts and In forests where
logging  operations  at    present    are
] not profitable.     Hut the tact remains
thnt with the practice of the intelligent conservation methods now being
followed   by  the  lands    department,
careful cutting and modern reforest-
ation, British Columbia has an almost;
inexhaustible asset in her forest resources.
The government is credited with
having placed the industry on its
feet, largely through the great assistance which has been given the
marketing of lumber.
U. S. CAN'T COMPETE
That the United States government
commission which recently toured
Canada investigating the cost of
grain production has decided that
United States cannot compete wilh
Canada in this respect, is the opinion
of L. H. Boyd, chairman of the Board
of Grain Commissioners, who is very
optimistic about Canada's future grain
trade.
CANADA'S AUTO EXPORTS
An important increase in Canada's
truck and automobile export business
is shown by recent trade figures. During the year 12,429 trucks valued at
$4,603,000 went out of the country, as
compared with 2,564 trucks valued at
$1,094,000 In 1922. In the same period 57,481 automobiles valued at $29.-
325,000 were exported as against 35.-
394 valued at $21,059,000 in 1922.
COLONIZATION IN QUEBEC
In order to promote colonization,
the provincial Department of Colonization of Quebec expended two and a
half million dollars during thc fisc.il
year of 1922-23, according to a report
made recently by Hon. J. K. Perreuult,
Minister of Colonization, etc. Among
the most Important colonization work
done during the year was tlle opening
up. completing nnd repairing of over
3,000 miles of road in the new districts of the province and 70 schools
were also opened in newly settled
areas.

SHIRLEY MASON HERE
SOON IN FOX PICTURE
Shirley Mason, the dainty little star
of tbe William Fox group, will be seen
Friday and Saturday at the llo-llo
Theatre In hor latest vehicle "Love-
bound," a story by the noted writer
George Scarborough.
The feature, which wos adapted tor
the screen by Jules Furtham and
Josephine Quirk and directed hy
Henry Otto, offers one of the mosl
absorbing entertainments thot have
been seen on the local ■ screen this
season.
Cast as the little stenographer of
the    enterprising   distinct   attorney
whose affection lias brought him to
the point of proposal, and as Ihe
daughter of a one-time crook and
member of the underworld, Miss Ma:
on (as Bess Belw.,n) finds herself in
the position of being compelled to as.
slst a former friend of her parent's
in a mission ot ill-design. Out to
save the name of her now repentant
father, the girl consents to accompany
the blackmailer on his swindle.
How the story wends its wny
through a labyrinth of interesting
complications, offers many thrilling
moments to the spectator.
In "Loveboutid" the Fox star Is supported by Alhert Roscoe, well known
for his support of many of the na
tion's most prominent stage stars in
their Broadway productions. Others
in the cast are of the same high excellence.

OLD AND NEW FORT GARRY
THK story of the Winnipeg
forts of the enrly fur-trading
days—Rouge and Gibraltar
Douglas and Carry, is among the
most interesting that could be
found anywhere. When Verendrye
came to the junction of thc Rol
and Assiniboine Rivers in 1"'I8 he
established Fort Rouge. Thc
Northwest Companv, sixty vears
later, established Fort Gibraltar
and a few years later Fort Douglas, named after Thomas Douglas, the fifth Earl of Selkirk, was
constructed by thc Hudson's Bay
Company. Many stories are told
of conflicts between the servants
of the Hudson's Bay and North-
West Comnanies. but the feuds terminated with the amalgamation of
the two companies in 1821. and the
first Port Garry was erected as a
trading post and   settlers' depot.
This was an elaborate structure
with stone walls, bastions and portholes.
On 1831 the building of Lower
Fort Garry, 19 miles down the
river was commenced. This was for
a time the residence of the Governor of Rupert's Land and the
seat of government. In 1835 Upper Fort Garry was begun at the
junction of the two rivers and this
was the centre of business, government, education and public affairs for more than 30 years, and
was the nucleus of the present city
of Winnipeg.
The Fort was sold in 18S2 and
the front gate, now owned by the
citv and standing beside the new
Fort Garry, the hotel nf thc Canadian National Railways, is all that
remains of this historic group of
buildings.
IMMIGRATION COLONY       COLONIZATION
The immigration colony which is in
be established just outside of Brant-
ford, Ontario, and will he conducted
by the Canadian Immigrant Farmers'
Education Brotherhood Company, will
make a real effort to bring to this
country sturdy Hungarian settlers
pnd make of them real Canadian citizens. Such Is the statement of (I.
V. Hamory, of Youngstown, Ohio,
chief promoter of the scheme, when
contradicting the rumor that the colony would be a stopp-off pluce tor
foreigners wishing to enter the United Sates. When the immigrants have
mastered the intricacies of Canadian
farming the..* will he assisted by tha
railways to become established on th*
land.
ASSOC. CONTINUES
The Canadian Colonization Association, with headquarters at Winnipeg,
will not cease its activities but instead will be a leading factor in the
general land settlement campaign to
he conducted in Canada this year.
This was announced hy the Association following the return of officials
from a directors' meeting held in Montreal a few days ago.

«"THE story of the Japanese
earthquake disaster made appeal to Canadians for many reasons,
and the Government of this Dominion did not hesitate to lend practical aid to tlie sufferers in stricken
Japan, which staggered under one
of the worst disasters in history.
A ceremony the other day in New
York, which gave recognition to
Captain Samuel Robinson, who was
in command of the Canadian Pacific
steamer "Empress of Australia,"
which happened to be in the harbor
of Yokohama al the time of the disaster, is particularly Interesting,
bringing to light the fact that this
gallant officer of the mercantile
marine was instrumental in the rescue of approximately three thousand
persons. Honor to whom honor is
due has been worthily ana fittingly
done in the presentation of the
C.B.E. by the British Consul-C.eneral
at New York, in the presence of a
distinguished gathering, which included Mr. E. VV, Beatty, Mr. Grant
Hall and other high officials of tlle
C.P.R. Canadians cannot help feeling a thrill of pride when reading
the odyssey of Captain Samuel Robinson. The spirit which inspired Columbus and Vasco de Gama and M.
Gerbault pervudes the officers and
the men of the British mercantile
marine, and the gallantry of Canadian sailors today is not altogether
different from what imbued those
old seamen- -Phoenicians, Vikings,
Portuguese, Italians—who risked
their lives in the earlier days. The
world, we sometimes lament has no
more mysteries left and nothing
more for explorers to do. From
China to Ps>ru, from Pule to Pole, all
is known and mapped and even photographed. But we need not fear that.
British seamen will lose their ga
lantny  and  daring  of  past  history
because there are no more worlds to
conquer. How many Canadian boys
growing up today will read with a
thrill of pride of the achievements of
the officers and men of the good
ship Empress of Australia in a time
of great trial and difficulty in the
burning waters of Yokohama—and
will want to grow up and, if the
occasion demands it in the days of
ihe future, gu and do likewise.
The old famous sea captains, Columbus and Drake, and all the rest
who are gone "to the haven under
the hill" did their work nobly, manfully and well, with their crews to
help them. Captain Robinson's heroic endeavor will stand out as a
bright, particular page in Canadian
Pacific steamship history, where,
taking immense risks, the morale,
courage and proud sea history of
the men of the mercantile marine
were again exemplified in their
brightest colors. It is well for the
world that there are men of the
Captain Robinson type in command
of those great ships flying mercantile marine flags on the seven seas.
The Government of Japan will take
a suitable opportunity to give due
appreciation of the valuable help
rendered by the C. P. steamships and
their officers for a service gladly
rendered in token of our friendship
and our common humanity. However clouded the outlook may be in
other quarters, we have always been
able to see a patch of blue sky over

that Cumberland can be saved from

machine; the result of years of test in thc plants of the manufacturers lu Switzerland and France :: Tills marvellous little
pocket lamp, embodying simplicity, reliability and compactness,
weighs only 12 ounces.     It Is patented in ull countries.

rounds the induction without loss of magnetic dispersion, and
permits the maximum exploitation of the energy.

skilled Swiss clock and scientific instrument makers :: Electro
Automate Lamps are tight and dust-proof. They can be used
iu all climates, Including equatorial regions. Tliey will everywhere render the utmost service, giving a clear white light, without fear of the bulb burning out or Ibe generator booming

. dltlonally that they arc not tampered with. With reasonable
care they will last for years. Any pint can be renewed ut slight
cost.    Lumps are provided with n pocket for cxiru bulbs.
This lamp Is especially useful to travellers, tourists, murine und
mining engineers. uutoinnhili:.it. dairymen, In fact everybody.
They are indispensable on life-honls und nuts, where u light is
needed that will not be extinguished hy wind or wave :: Every
mine should be provided wilh one or more of theso lamps at lis

whose work takes him in and out of the mine at Irregular Intervals, lt is the cheapest und best light ou tlle market for this
purpose :: Marine engineers welcome Eloctro Automate iu their
engine room. It saves them from the annoyance and loss of
time occasioned by the unreliability of battery lamps when they
wish to locute trouble or Hnd something In a hurry :: Pilots are
favorable to these little lamps because they are always standing
by ready and able to do their part In any and all kinds of
weather. They are hardy little fellows ond will stand any
amount of knocking about, even to the bulbs, which are superior
to auy others on the market:: Mushers over the northern trails
take these lamps in preference to others, because they give it
never ending light and adtl loss than u pound of weight to their
outfits. The wlndB can't blow Ihem out and the snow or wet con
not short circuit them.
