Array THE CUMBERLAND ISLANDER «'
With which ls consolidated the Cumberland -News.
CUMBERLAND,  BRITISH COLUMBIA, SATURDAY, MAY 12th, 1923
SUBSCRIPTION PRICE:  TWO DOLLARS PER ANNUM.
Annual Report Of The
President Of Hospital
To the Subscribers to the Cumberland General Hospital.
Gentlemen:—
I beg to submit the annual report
of the Cumberland General Hospital
for tlie year ending March ,11st, 1923.
Slut 1stles:
In Hospital. April 1st 1922     27
Admitted during the year   329
Discharged during thc year   316
Died during the year     16
In Hospital, March 31st 1923 ....   24
Number of Hospital Days treatment      9442
Average number of patients per
dny         26
Major operations         34
Minor operations     205
Obstetrical   cases       41
X-Ray examinations made   356
There is n slight decrease In the
number of pat len I days treatment,
there being 112 less patient days than
In the previous year which was the
largest in the history of the Hospital.
Financial Condition
During the year ns will be noted
from llie financial statement ihe receipts from all sources were $20247.40
and Iho total expenditures were
$21760.42. leaving n net loss on the
year's operations of $1513.02.
The llosplliil had a balance In the
bank to Us credit nt tlle beginning of
the fiscal yenr of $1907.08, but nt Ihe
close of tho fiscal year this was reduced to $394. S2. Receipts were
$2663.78 less thnn in Ihe fiscal year
ending March 31st, 1922, and thc expenditures woro nlso $1196.10 less
than tlie previous year. The reduction in llie amount received Is responsible for the deficit, and not increased expenditure, tthe hospital
has been able lo meet all Its financial obligations when due without recourse to nnv* overdraft at the Bank.
Cost of Operation
I nm very pleased to he able to report a very low cost of operation. The
cost per patient doy for the year Just
closed wns $2.30 per dny. This Ib 12
cenls per day less than tlie cost per
patient day for the previous year.
Tills Is a splendid showing especially
when It is considered that nil repairs
to building)*, new equipment purchased, etc., Is all charged against
the operntlUK costs, there being no
capital account or plant and equipment account to charge these items
against. Were these acciiunts deducted and they are not properly
chargeable to the cost of operation,
it would reduce this Item at least 25
cents per patient dny.
Addition to  Equipment
A Dynelectrou and a Radiant Heat
Apparatus was purchased and Installed at n cost of $560.00. This uAchlnc
will enable the hospital to furnish
various kinds of electrical treatment,
such as treatment of Joint and muscle
conditions, BClatlca, neuritis, lumbago, nervous conditions, high blood
pressure, and a host of other conditions, that will yield to electrical
treatment.
Medical  Fund  Agreement
Owing lo unforseen circumstances
the Medical Fund have not been able
to carry out their part of the Agreement during llie past year which is
Ihe reason for Ihe Hospital having n
deficit of $1513.02. The Medical Fund
paid $9,999.00 during thc year,
$2,000.00 less Ihan III the previous
year.
Several discussions hnve been held
between Committees of Ihe Hospital
Board and the Medical Fund regarding this matter, und the attitude of
tlie Medical Fund Is that they aro unable to pay the amount agreed upon.
They have offered the HoBpltal
Hoard the sum of $650.00 per month
in lieu of $1,000.00. Tho financial
iintcraent of the Hospital will show
lhat it would be Impossible for the
Hospital to carry on the work that
It has been doing for the Medical
Fund for nny length of time nt that
liguro. This means that the Medical
Fund will pay $1200.00 less this year
than they paid Inst yenr, whicli
would mean that on the basis of tho
operating costs for Ihe year Just
ended, (and I think they arc as low
as cnu reasonably bo expected) the
Hospital would hnve a deficit at the
ond of next year of at least $2700.00.
This is not a very cheering prospect
for the Incoming Board to face.
A total of 0939 patient days treatment came under this Agreement
which figures out at a cost per patient day of $1.30.   This Is certainly as
MASONIC BALL
SPLENDID SUCCESS
low a rate as could possibly be expected.
Seventy per cent of the patient
days treatment was under this agreement while ouly 44.5r/r of the total revenue was received from the Medical
Board.
Repairs to Buildings
Very little repairs were done during the past year only $886.78 having
been spent on repair work.
There Is a considerable amount ot
work to be done whicli the Board had
hoped to be able tn do this coming
summer.
The heating system Is inadequate
lor the proper heating of the building
during cold spells. The furnace requires to be enlarged, n considerable
amount of new piping put in aud additional radiators placed in each
room. The outside lining ot the build
ing from the floor level to the ground
is in very bad shape nnd should be
entirely renewed.
Several floors require renewing
and some of the rooms require ktiiso-
miniiig and painting.
It was the hope of the Board that
Ihey would have the necesBnfy funds
in hand this year to have this work
done. Unfortunately however owing
to the Medical Board being unable to
pay llieir full amount, It will be impossible with the funds In sight to
do any of this work. This work Is
badly needed hut unless Ihe money is
in sight it will be impossible for the
Hoard fo do anything.
Collections from private patients
have been good. Unpaid accounts
amount lo $625.00. Most of this Is of
recent date and ls collectable. $155.00
Is considered uncollectible.
Wc wish to express our appreciation of the good work of the Ladles
Auxiliary during the past year In
furnishing many comforts for the patients. We regret to note that they
have decided to abandon their activities for the present, especially at
this lime, when their good services
will be most urgently needed.
We nlso wish to express our appre-
j elation of the good work done by the
I Matron and her staff during tbe year.
1 Tlie low cost of operation shows lhat
I every economy is being exercised in
the operation of the hospital.
We nlso wish lo express our thanks
in all those who made donations or
assisted the Hospital In any way.
Respectfully submitted,
CHARLES   GRAHAM, President.

day May Bth, when Dorothy, daughter
nf Mr. and Mrs. Jnhn  Hnffey of this
Cumberland and Courtenay Baseball
teems clashed for tho first time this
i season Inst Sunday on the local ball
grounds, the home boys emerging vlc-
: torious after n stubbornly fought con-
{ test. For a season opener, it was as
j good n game ns could have been ex-
■ peeled nml although neither team
could bnve been expected lo show
mid-season form, there were some
good ploys pulled off. Courtenay
came up short handed, but that was
nol Cumberland's fault nnd though
they accepted tlie services of three
of llie best players on the Union Bay
team Cumberland proved their superiority, especially with the stick,
when In Ihe sixth Inning they
touched up I,eftv Larson, the pride
of the farmers nine, for five safeties
anil four runs. D. Robenson In right
field for the visitors was responsible
for threo of these ruus when he made
a bobble, allowing nn easy one to get
away from hmi. On the other hand
Pettlcrew made n big league running
pick-up in ibe first Inning that made
(lie large crowd of fans feel as though
tbey were to see a great game.
King was on tlie mound for the
Miners anil delivered the goods, while
Richardson behind tlu- bat completed
a battery combination lhat at a all
times bail tbe Courtenay boys guessing and Larson did tlie heaving for
Courtenay and Hrown. ,\ newcomer
lint, by the way not a novice, was be-
bal. Tlie longest hit of the
dny was a drive to left field by 111-
chardaon, nf ibe   local   nine,   who
city beenme Ihe bride of Mr. Edward I ambled  armnnl   in  third  on  hia  hit.

HOW AROUT IT?
In the Bpring a young man's fancy lightly turns to thoughts of love,
and some of us older chaps may have
memories, too.
Did you marry your first little
sweetheart, she of the pinafore frock,
nnd, perhaps, thc bnrher-pole stockings? lt is certain Hint at times she
wore a cute little braided queue,
though, sometimes—when sho wns
dressed up—her hair hung In curls
down her Blender back. How the
sunlight glinted in those curls, making them to shine with a splendor
ukln to thnt which lights Hie wings
of drifting angels In the dreams of
night!
Do you remember when you first
kissed her? Of course, you do. That
Is an incident which is graven on
your memory forever and ever. You
felt thrllly and chilly, and warm by
turns, and you were half scared to
death. You saw God in her eyes and
felt Him In your soul! Wouldn't you
give all that you have or ever expect
to have, in exchange for the innocence of your heart as It beat that
dny against the throbbing little heart
In her tender bosom?
But, did you marry her? How about
It? It Is a question of softer appeal
during these budding days than any
connected with the League of Nations,
our Internal or our international affairs.
Perhaps you did marry this little
Lady of Dreams, and perhaps you did
not. The chances are that you did
not. But you will remember well
the sweet ache that troubled your
soul in the days when you were wooing her with a chivalry known only
when we walk through the henven-
land of childhood.
When you think of her now—don't
deny it—your soul yearns back to
that never-never land where Bhe
reigned, where she still reigns and
Bhall rule forever and ever.
But did you marry her?

P\RIS creates clothes ideas, and upon these McMullen
relies for the exquisite smartness of all frocks and sports
dresses bearing his label—a Silver Swan on Turquoise-Blue
background.
But this smartness depends upon the lovely texture, the beauty
and lasting quality of the silk fabrics just as much as upon the
styling of the many pretty mode's.
The silk and fabrics, all the materials and fine workmanship
that McMullen puts into a frock or dress for sports or afternoon wear are rarely found in any but the most expensive
garments—each a thing of beauty exquisitely made.
And yet all this refreshing newness of design, these winsome
materials and colour blendings of rare beauty are combined into
the Parisian chic of a McMullen model at a price within the
reach of all!

BARRISTER & SOLICITOR
NOTARY PUBLIC

AN INTERVIEW
Seeing  the  bustle around  Corfleld
Motors Ltd., Ford Dealers, establishment, I paid a visit to find the
reason.
"Well, sir, how are business prospects In the Ford line for 1923?"
"Splendid, never looked so bright
—We have half our allotment sold."
"Isn't that unusual, considering industrial conditions here—how do you
account for it?"
"No, it is only what we expected,
when people realized the days of easy
money were over and everyone got
hunting for best value for their dol.
lars, wben a man forgets the 'keeping up with tbe Jones' Idea, and insists on buying transportation that
is a utility motor car, " that will
transport hlni cheaply, In both business and pleasure quests, and insists on getting real value—he has
to buy a Ford."
"Who  nre  jonr  Purchasers,—What
Class oi Citizens!"
"Mainly the solid families who wero
not carried away with tho spending
madness Hint has been with us for
the last few years; while others
spent lavishly, they saved and denied
themselves a motor car bocause
prices were exorbitant—now they
hnve the cash and can buy a Ford
car when it is thc cheapest In history. Then, wc are selling thc rich
man who has found he must save his
large car—the proper depreciation Is
being taken oil' by all dealers; now
that prices have stopped advancing
his losses would be great, so he must
have his large Investment, and he
buys a Ford, which he trades each
year. Of course, tlie vast majority of
Commercial firms, Travellers, Doctors and other Professional men always bought Fords because they
must use a car in all weathers and
rond conditions and they dare not
experiment with cars—their living
depends on sure transportation so,
naturally, they would buy Fords.
Then, thc ladies have found thot a
Ford car is most easily driven, (no
gear shifting), and arc buying Ford
Sedans and Coupes, as the logical
family car for this climate.
"The Ford Ton Truck and Speed
Trucks, with their wide range of
bodies have no equal for the money,
and as modern business demands
speedy, cheap delivery, every live
business man Is a customer for this
line. Coupling all this with consistent hard Bales, effort, backed with
our reputation for giving value in
used cars and honest service behind
new cars, we are piling up great
sales."
"Are All The New Light Cars In the
Field >'ot AffecHng Yoar
"Very little, sir, of course, people
arc well versed in motors by this
time and very few are willing to experiment with their money. Probably in a few years that opposition
will make itself felt, but by that time
Ford's tremendous production will
have the price down very low—they
have such a start and such a complete organization."
"I notice you lay particular! stress
on Ford service In your advertising
on what do you assertion that your
service Is superior to others?"
"Service, sir, is a much abused
word. The public have an idea it is
getting something for nothing. It ts
not—I will endeavor to show you
why no car dealer here can give the
service on his car that we give with
Fords. In the flrst place, Ford is a
standard cor—no charges have ever
heen made In basic, construction,—
true, Fords have been refined,
strengthened, and new bodies, tops,
wheels and steering gears added—
but each improvement has been made
interchangeable with the old. Now,
sir, for Ten Thousand dollars we can
carry a complete stock of genuine
Ford Parts, and naturally tliey arc
cheap—due to standardization, whereas oilier manufacturers have changed
and changed until these parts have
advanced to exorbitant prices and
the cars arc often tied up for days—
until they come from thc factory. Then
wo can, and hnve Installed Ford labor-saving machinery and trained
men on certain work until we can set
a schedule price for each operation,
thereby taking all guess-work out of
repairing. You will nolo that our
whole Oarage, our Accessory stock;
our Ford Parts, from tho smallest
nut to a complete frame, ln our Repair Department. Is all laid out tn
serve Ford Owners only. That, sir,
ls Ford service. If you will visit all
our competitors, you will And that
our service contention Is absolutely
correct—none can offer a purchaser
such inducements."
"Why do yon not Deal In other Cars
Thau Fords?"
"For the very good reason thnt a
used large car is not saleable against
a new Ford product, when that product Is nt a lower price. It Is natural that a cur purchaser would prefer
ii now Ford to a used large car—
that Is why used curs of nny othor
makes have to be depreciated to such

Among the novelties discovered by
a committee from the Chicago City
Council, which toured European cities recently tor the purpose of studying street construction, was a new
type of pavement found in the borough of Hornsey In London whero
streets were paved with clinkors
from a garbage incinerator. Thc
clinkers were crushed and mixed
with Mexican asphalt, the combination being laid over a foundation of
clinkers or over an old macadam
roadbed. Some pavements of this
material are still In perfect condition,
the aldermen reported .after seven
or eight years of use without repairs.

THE   CUMBERLAND   ISLANDER
SATURDAY.  MAY  12th,  1923
BY AUTO ON THE GULF OF GEORGIA
YY/HO has not heard of the thou-
" sand isles of the Gulf of
Georgia? This Gulf is a ramification of the great strait of Juan de
Fuca famed in legend and history,
through which the Spanish navigators sailed hundreds of years ago,
and which  is now one of the im-
fortant trade routes of the world.
t separates Vancouver Island from
the mainland of British Columbia
and the State of Washington, .nnd
is one of the most beautiful waterways known  to man.
The city of Victoria, at the extreme south end of Vancouver Island, has several ferry lines connecting it with the mainland, but as
the steamship services in the past
have proved inadequate for the large
crowds of summet visitors and motor
tourists, the Canadian Pacific Railway Company has put into service a
fast-going vessel whicb operates
twice daily between Victoria and
Ueilingham, Washington The ferry
is an important addition to the Canadian Pacific fleet and its name,
"Motor Princess," is appropriate in
that it is the first vessel of the
company, operating on tlie Pacific,
to be equipped with interna: combustion engines. These engines give
the boat a speed ol about fourteen
knots. On the two main decks there
is parking space for fifty automobiles, and there is well appointed
accommodation for twn hundred and
fifty passengers, saloon, restaurant,

The Cost of the Lowest Bid
The electric equipment of a home to-day, no matter how simple that home may be, is a scientific problem and warrants a few minutes attention and study.
Electricity is constantly making life easier, more
convenient and more comfortable for everybody and,
as the world is grasping the place of electricity in the
home, soon it will be the exception for a house not to
be thoroughly equipped for every phase of electrical
service.
Considering the importance of tho electrical equipment of the home, nothing should be left to chance.
The wiring should beright, illumination properly provided for, electrical outlets conveniently placed and
the materials and appliances should be what experts
have decided is necessary for a safe, dependable and
permanent job. In other words, your equipment ought
to be standard.
Your electrical installation requires a specialized
knowledge just the same as your heating or plumbing
installation. The heating engineer or the sanitary engineer knows better than you do what your house requires. In these cases, if you are wise, you select a
man whom you know to be qualified in every respect
to give you a satisfactory installation at a fair price.
There has to be a man who knows, and the community has to have some means to find him. The man
who knows electricity, so far as it applied to the modern household, is the qualified electrical contractor,
who is in close touch with the latest practise in electrical wiring.

Interest to Courtenay.—-Want
Temporary Bridge.
$
The members ot the Courtenay
-Comox Board ot Trade held tbelr
regular monthly meeting on Tuesday
night In the City Hall. President J.
N. McLeod occupying the chair and
about llfteen other members being
present.
Tlie minutes of the previous meeting were adopted as read. Communications trom tlie British Columbia
Telephone Company were received
in answer lo the letter and resolu
tions that were sent to the head office
regarding the service to Courtenay
patrons. Some of the members declared that thc service had improved
since tlie matter bad been taken up.
It was also rported that Mr. Paterson, Iraiiic superintendent, had been
in Courtenay and bad left the impression that more adequate equipment would be installed at the Courtenay exchange. Mr. Heber Cooke,
on behalf of the Retail Bureau reported that thc resolution re the
sales lax that had been liefore the
last meeting and referred to his bureau hail received the endorsation
asked. He also reported that a committee comprised of "Messrs. Laver
and Pigott had canvassed the merchants re the closing of the stores
at five o'clock daily Instead of six
during the months of June, July and
August. One merchant had held out
against it and on that account the
City Council had been approached
with the idea of having that body
enacl an early closing by-low. This
action had been taken by the Council and a by-law embodying the early closing idea had received Its flrst
and second reading and would likely
pass Its third reading at the next
meeting of the Council.
Quite a discussion took place regal-ding the construction of tho new
bridge over the Countenay River.
There were many advocates of the
construction of a temporary bridge
for use during the time the road will
be closed to traffic. In tact the concensus of opinion seemed to be that
if a temporary bridge were not constructed the city would be practically Isolated from the rest of the Valley for a period so long that lt would
work to the disadvantage of the town
and Industries that now use the
bridge, especially the lumber workers, particularly the M, &. M. Sawmill people whose cost ot hauling
would be so Increased by being forced to make a long detour that opera
tion ot the mill would be almost prohibited. Some of the members claimed also that the extra cost of strengthening the two bridges that would
have to be crossed by making the detour an dthe added cost of maintenance of the road would be greater
than the expence of constructing a
temporary bridge. The question was
left in thc hands of a committee to
make thorough investigation of conditions and to act as representatives
of the Board to Interview the City
Council if deemed necessary.
Mr. Anderton brought up the question nf the disposal of the Indian reserve, stating lhat he noticed by news
paper reports that the Puntledge Re.
serve wns one that would be reverted lo the Provincial Government by
llie Dominion and Hint the time was
now opportune for approaching tlie
Department of Lands with the Idea
of securing a portion of the Reserve
for park purposes for the city of
Courtenay. Mr. Anderton said that
three years ago a committee composed of Messrs. Stewart, McPhee
and Cleland had interviewed the
Government in regard to this and
that a verbal promise had been made
by Mr. Patullo, Minister of Lands
that consideration would be given to
Courtenay's request when the reserve was transferred to the Province. It was decided to ask the
same committee to again take the
matter up with the Department.
Mr. W. J. C. Hannah, presented a
petition that had been extensively
signed by residents of the Little River district re the dnngerous condition of a portion of the road that is
so greatly used by motorists ou their
way to the beach at that place during the summer. He had been thc
near victim to two accidents nnd he
knew of others who had nearly met
with serious mishap. The chief obstructions were two or three large
stumps in the road that prevented
motorists from seeing approaching
cars and the expense of removing
these would be comparatively light.
Mr. Theed Pearse also spoke of the
dangerous condition of the road and
said that the Engineer had told him
that lack of funds had always held
up thc work of fixing It. The Board
acting on a suggestion ot Mr. Heber
Cooke and his committee passed a
grant of fifteen dollars to the May
Day celebration managers.
Mr. Hughes reported that the road
to Bevan is now in first class condition and that travel was easy to that
section now.
It was decided that the publicity
bureau should begin a campaign of
education, instructing the public as
to the operation of the bureau of tlie
Board which certainly has meant
much to the workings and accomp
lishments of the Courtenay-Comox
Board of Trade.   Some time ago the
I Board was reorganized and the old
committees disbanded. In their
stead have been organized bureaux
and every member ls    attached    to
'. one or more, depending on his own
Ideas of how he can best serve the
< Board and therefore the district. No
member is ever appointed to a standing committee; he signifies his Intention of working along certain
lines and places himself at the disposal of the bureau having charge of
that deparlment. In this way every
member of the Board Is always working. Tlie result has been that greater Interest is being taken In the
Board, better results arc being attained and the Board under these
conditions Is looking forward to its
best year.
COMPANY COMPLETE ROAD
Motorists who have had occasion
to visit Camp Three of the Comox
Logging & Railway Company will be
glad to know that they no longer
have to walk a mile or two. The
Company undertook to complete the
road and have done so. The work
certainly wns expeditiously done and
for a new unsurfaced road could be
a whole lot worse. It Is expected
that gravel will be applied soon.

The Replacing of the AU-
Elastic Corset and Non-
Supporting Girdles with
Front Lacing Corsets.
The wearing of the all-elastic
corset (which never received
the endorsement of The H. W.
Gossard Co.) has given a tremendous impetus to the sale of
front lacing corsets. Women
who were led to wear those all-
elastic garments through wrong
ideas of beauty, found that they
cannot perform the hygienic
function of a properly designed
eorsel. permitting the figure to
sag nnd lose its shape. But as
women discard these insufficient supports, they find that
they have become accustomed
to the smooth hack and are not
satisfied, nor will they endure
tho ugliness and discomfort of
a rigid lacing at the back. They
are buying front lacing corsets;
Ihey hnve learned to like the
smooth back—to recognize Its
necessity if they are to wear
successfully the modern clothes
And there is an overwhelming
preference for Gossard Corsets
with their graceful, slenderizing front lines and their smooth,
uninterrupted back lines that
cannot be attained in any imitating front lacing corsets or
tlie old-fashioned back lacing
corsets.
Gossard Longerlyne Brassieres
BECAUSE these new models
offer so many women what they
have so long wished for and
never been able to find, they
are selling with a rapidity that
makes generous profits. They
are designed to meet the needs
of those hundreds of customers
who require special shaping to
properly support and flatten thc
diaphragm and who need added
length to prevent their brassieres from slipping up over thc
low tops of the modern corsets.

Ilo-Ilo Theatre on Friday and Saturday. The story of "Fury" is by Edmund Goulding—a highly dramatic
tale of the sea rivalling, if not surpassing, anything iiaithelmess has
yet done for the screen. The story
deals with the transformation of
j "Boy" Leyton from the timorous
! second mate ot a sailing vessel who
Is held in contempt even by his own
father to a courageous man of fearsome purpose when he learns of a

Bcrccn find, who has won ihe theatregoers' plaudits for Mm exceptionally
fine performances in "The Prisoner

role in Hex Ingram's production for
Metro, "Where ihe Pavement, Ends."
at the llo-llo Theatre, was born of
Spanish parents .who settled in Du*
ran go, one of the prosperous states
uf Mexico. Realizing that opportunities in ihe theatre wero far more num
eroua in the United States, he came
north at an early age and his ability
as a dancer won him a place in iho
Mac Murray dance troupe, with which
he formed the Orpheum circuit. Arriving in Los Angeles he, became
I'lage manager of the Majestic Stock
Company, But again dancing proved
to be the keystone to his present success, for he joined the Marion Morgan dancers, and while with them
put on the Koyal Fandango, a dance
fantasy, for the Hollywood Community Players. At this performance
he was seen by Hex Ingram, who was
looking for the ideal player to impersonate the dashing Rupert of
Hentzau in "The Prisoner of Zenda."
Rex Ingram believes that .Novarro
will become one of the greatest actors. He says: "Novarro is a born
actor, inexperienced yet. but able for
all that to go out on the set and express things which would puzzle au
oldlimer to accomplish. "Where the
Pavement Ends." a stirring tale of the
South Seas, was written hy John Rus
sell and adapted for the screen by
Hex Ingram. Alice Terry plays the
femiuite lead. Tho photography
work was done by John F. Seitz,
whose brilliant work is a byword
wherever films are made or shown.
