League Record
Ladysmith Scare Equiillrlng Goal In
Last Fow Minute*-Game Played
ln Downpour of Kaln
The Cumberland United Soccer
team maintained their unbeaten record on Sunday last when they held
the fast-stepping Ladysmith team to
a one all draw on the grounds of the
latter club.
Cumberland was first to score.
"Toots" Plump doing fhe trick with a
magnificent shot, giving Boyd no possible chance of sav'.ng. At the interval Cumberland led by the lone
goal scored by Plump. Neither goalkeeper was seriously threatened, play
being confined mostly to centre fleld
with Cumberland having a slight
edge.
Ladysmith equalised the score in
the last lew minutes ot the second
half, after a misunderstanding between Conti, Stewart and Mortimer,
Blair being helpless and was in no
wise to blame. The Ladysmith team
had the edge tn the second half, nml
a one all draw wns a fair indication
of the play. The game was played
before a large crowd, and ln a downpour of rain, making good football impossible.
Council Meeting
Was Short One
The City Council held an unusual
short session on Monday evening.
City machinery must be running very
smoothly as the business of the evening was finished In forty minutes from
start to finish. His Worship Mayor
Parnham occupied the chair, with Aldermen Mumford, Potter, Jeffrey and
Mordy present.
The Council passed a vote of thanks
to the management ot the Canadian
Collieries (Dunsmuir) Ltd., for a
cheque of three hundred dollars, received as a donation towards the purchase price of one thousand feet of
Are hose.
Accounts were passed as usual.
For the benefit ot the aldermen
present His Worship the Mayor explained the Electric Inspection
charges and how they were made up,
to the satisfaction of all concemeil.
He said the inspection was under
city authority and according to the
by-law passed by the city.
Alderman Potter, chairman of the
board of works reported city workmen repairing drains and sewers during the past week and was still waiting for the remaining portion of the
20-Inch pipe to complete the main
sewer.
The question of Illuminating Dunsmuir Avenue on Saturday evenings,
something similar to that which was
adopted during the recent visit of the
Hon. the Premier of Canada, was referred to the local Board of Trade to
ascertain the cost of installation.
Fire Wardens report the new chemical truck ready to receive tanks
when they arrive.
There was some comment in connection with the improvements at the
corner of Dunsmuir Avenue and First
Street, the tearing up of the sidewalk
and who gave permission. Without
any action being taken the chairman
ot the board ot works said he would
await developments.
The meeting adjourned.

Many Enjoyed
Themselves At
Club Dance
Without a doubt, from both the
standpoints of attendance and enjoyment derived, the opening Dance of
the season held by the Linger Longer
Club last Friday night, was the best
that dancers of Cumberland and district have had the pleasure of attending for some time. Three hundred Invitations had been sent out and
one glance at the crowd was sufficient to show that nearly everyone
had been accepted.
A pleasing feature was the manner
in which the Club had decorated the
huge dance hall of the Ilo-Ilo Theatre.
Hallowe'en colors, yellow and black,
were predominant and witches, with
their black cats, popped out of the
most unexpected places. At twelve
o'clock delightful coffee, coke and
sandwltches were served after which
dancing was continued until 1:30 a.m.
Plumps Orchestra was at its lies',
Its efforts being greatly appreciated by the dancers.
NANAIMO CITY
HERE TOMORROW
The Cumberland Rangers will make
tbelr seventh start of the season when
they bump against Nanaimo City on
Sunday. The game will be played on
the Recreation Grounds here and is
scheduled to start at 3:00 p.m. with
Referee A. S. Jones in charge. The
home team will line up as follows:
Goal, Walker; Backs, Gough and Carney; Halves, Devlin, Farmer and
Marshall; Forwards, Thomas, Stevenson, Campbell, Keenan and Weir;
all other players acting as reserves.
We understand that the Rangers are
out to. win this game or to at least
secure a draw. We wish them the
best of luck and hope they.do lt.
Tuesday's Social
Great Success
A very enjoyable Hallowe'en Social
waB held in the Anglican Hall on
Tuesday evening last. Owing to
counter attractions the dance was
held earlier than originally Intended
and advertised and this fact, coupled with the very heavy downpour,
was no doubt responsible for the
small attendance. Those however,
who did brave the elements had a
most enjoyable time.
At eleven o'clock, delecatble refreshments were served, Pumpkin pie
and ginger bread being given the
"place of honor" amongst Ihe good
eats. Dancing was continued until
12:30, 'Toots" Plump's Orchestra being responsible for the music, giving
great satisfaction.
Mr. W. P. Symons mnde a most efficient master of ceremonies.

Spite Against Ut,7
That is the question Cumberland
residents have been asking themselves
(or anyone handy) for the past week,
and especially yesterday and Wednes-
nesday. Those of us win usually
brag to visitors about ot wonderful weather and our medl rainfall
will perhaps keep our lips -aled for
the rest of our natural exis. 'ice after
the deluge that came upon s Thursday afternoon aud evening. Coupled
with (lie rain was a wind so strong
that It was actually unsafe to venture
abroad unless you were a very heavy
person, for more thau one bad their
first experience of being blown off
their feet. Flying shingles and other
parts of houses also added to the danger aud to top it all the lights went
out when they were in most need.
This morning (Friday) found Old
Sol back in his accustomed place but
the question is—how long will he
last?

Before he could take his now possession away lie had to clear the way

SEVERE STORMS SWEET
THE ENTIRE DISTRICT
COURTENAY,—It has been said
that not for nine years has so much
rain fallen in Comox District as fell
last Sunday. The high tides during
the week have made it easy, with the
addition of tho heavy rain, for the
Courtenay River to overflow its banks
The baseball park has been flooded
and at intervals the water has been
over the road between Courtenay and
Sandwick. Lust Sunday was the
first time since the service began that
the boats of the Vuneouver-Courtenay
Transportation Company were unable
to tie up to the wharf. A large num •
ber of snags and much drift wood
had accumulated at the dock making
it impossible for steamers to tie up.
The wind that accompanied the rain
uprooted trees along the Island Highway .particularly to the south and the
telephone service was out of commission for long distance at intervals.
Everything is alright again and business is going on as usual.

COURTENAY.—There was a good
attendance of members at the general
meeting of the Comox Valley Potato
Growers' Association which was held
at the offices of the Creamery Association on Monday evening last, the
twenty-seventh instant. The President, Capt. G. R. Bates, was in the
chair and every section of the valley was represented.
That the Association ia alive to the
possibilities of potato culture In the
Comox Valley was evident from the
number of very important matters
that were fully discussed, among
these being:
1. Arranging for exhibits, moie
particularly a district exhibit for tlie
Provincial Potato Fair to be held in
Vancouver on the twenty-seventh of
November. Some very excellent tubers have beon grown this year in the
district and It was the general feeling of the meeting that if exhibits be
carefully picked there ls no reason
why the Grand Challenge cup that
was won at Grand Forks In 1922
should not become a possession of tlio
Comox Valley Potato Growers' Association for the year 1924-25. Tlie
meeting was full of optimism and a
committee comprising Messrs. II. P.
Allberry, G. R. Bates, Perry and W.

(Also any other hauling)
Telephone 92R Happy Valley
W. C. White
J. C. Hannah, was appointed to select
a district exhibit. Most of the growers present signified their intention of
sending in individual displays.
2. Realizing that an excellent quality of potato can be grown in the district it was the consensus of opinion
that It would be well to put on the
market a grade of spuds somewhat better than Canada "A" and call them
"Fancy Grade." Potatoes that will
come up to this grnde will be so
marked by the association selling
agents, the Comox Creamery.
3. Another subject brought up was
the marketing of certified seed. No
action was taken except to lay the
matter over until after the meeting
of the Provincial Certified Seed Growers' Association which Is to held at
the time of the Provincial Potato Fair
Capt. G. R. Bates is representative of
Comox Volley on the Bonrd of Directors and will represent the local Association at the meeting with any
other members it Is deemed necessary
to appoint.
4. An educational campaign will
be carried on in this district, meetings to be held In every part of the
Valley to be addressed by competent
potato growers and speakers. Demonstrations of grading commercial
potatoes and certified seed will be undertaken. This program ahould he
immensely beneficial to those who are
not thoroughly familiar with the regulations governing grading and doubt
less the meetings will be largely attended.
A very lengthy discussion took
place regarding the liability of selling agents in a case where a shipment of certified seed had heen mado
which was of inferior quality, in consequence of which a claim had been
made against the selling agents. The
chairman pointed out that as certified
seed was contained in sealed bags the
selling agents had no opportunity of
inspecting the contents of such bags
before shipping, consequently any
claim a purchaser might have would
be against the grower as there was an
implied warranty on his part that the
potatoes  contained  in    sealed    bags
were up to standard. Several members spoke of the necessity of growers shipping tubers of a little better
quality than actually called for. It
was generally agreed that if the potato industry of the district is to continue to make as great progress in
the future ns it has in the past that
this must be done. Great interest
was manifest by the members in the
forthcoming potato fair to be held at
Vancouver and a number have signified their intention of visiting the
terminal city at that time.

I am a FORD.
In my brief existence I have been of untold service to the world.
Only one force of all the forces or elements of
nature has added so much to the conservation of time
and distance for the human race—and that one force
is electricity.
Time is the most precious thing known in the uni-
verse-so precious that only one second is released from
the store-house of eternity for the use of all the hosts
of earth, and another is not released until the present
one is accounted for.
"Time is money."
I save time!
I devour distance.
I bring health to the weak. I paint the deep pink
of the rose on the cheeks of my devotees.
I broaden the horizon of all who call me their own.
I transport them to the hill tops and show them
the beauty of the sunrise and the landscape.
Through dells and dales-through forests and over
the burning sands of the desert to their desired goal,
I carry those who put their trust in me.
I am the dream come true!
I bring youth and the high hopes of youth.
I am a fore-runner of a new age.
I am a FORD.
You may trust me.

A BASHFUL LOVER
Ah!  would you hear, it I told you,
dear,
That I....er....liked you very well?
And would you care, it I could dare,
My....er....liking you to tell?
Ah!   would  you  list,   It  your  ear   I
kissed,
As I whispered l....er....like you?
And would you smile at me In a while,
If I....er....only knew how to sue?
Ah! me! Could I hut cease to sigh
And speak or sing instead!
By the Gods atiove!   The right word's
"love"—
Its out—so let's get wed!
—Kllhee Cordon.
Victoria, B.C.
October 26th, 1924.
ter just the same and should be abhorred by people of refinement. We
once knew a man of ability and promise who ultimately missed a high goal
because of his pernicious habit of telling smutty stories.
TO THE LADIES
The true lady is known where--
ever you meet her. If she attracts
attention it is by the unconscious
grace of her person and manner, and
by the ostentation ot her dress. The
strongest man feels the influence of
woman's gentlest thoughts as the
mightiest oak quivers in the softest
breeze. Never did the language belter apply to an adjective than when
calling the wife the "better half."
We admire the ladies because of their
beauty, respect them because of their
virtues, adore them because of their
Intelligence and love them because we
can't help it. And of all the places
on this great green earth to see and
study pretty, happy, healthy girls and
women, Cumberland is the best.
THE HARPIES
We met a man the other day for
the flrst time and in less than Ave
minutes he had told us a dirty story.
Virgil has typified obscenity In his
Harpies, those "obsence birds" than
which "no more revolting horror has
come forth from the Stygian waves."
While sEneas and his companions are
feasting in the Strophades, the disgusting creatures swoop down upoii
their banquet from the adjacent
mountains, with hoarse, discordant
croaklngs, flapping their great wings
and emitting an offensive ordor, and
what they do not devour of the least
they defile with tlieir horrible tilth.
The Harpies are not yet extinct.
Their foul contact still pollutes many
a choice banquet; their trail is over
many a fair fruit and beautiful flower.
Every town has them. They are the
men and boys who tell dirty stories.
Would you keep clean from this
kind of filth? Keep the windows and
doors of your mind closed against it;
keep the hearthstones within clean-
swept, lest it gather from within.
Tolerate no evil companion, book or
picture.
Savage races are almost invariably
nasty in thought and word, as Well
as ln person and habits of life, while
among civilized nations it is most
often In the slums that the household
words include the foulest in language.
But corruption does not confine itself
to the lowest levels. Its miasma
rises and spreads with greater or
less degree, to all heights aud distance. An obscene poem may circulate through a Sunday school or be
recited in hushed tones in a lady's
boudoir.     But it Is scum of the gut-
TAKING THE WASH
While seeking an inspiration for
a paragraph in this column we saw
a boy passing our window, pulling
a home-made wagon pn which somebody's weekly washing was piled high
in a tub. The boy was comfortably
clad and had a clean face and a sunny
smile. We don't know whether he
was the washer-woman's boy or the
son of the home to which the washing was being taken. In either case,
he will answer tor the paragraph. If
the son of the washer-woman he may
begin now to plan for the breaking of
the fetters that bind his mother to
the drudgery of the washtuh. Could
there be a nobler ambition for his
youthful mind to fix upon? When
he grows up he will slay the dragon
of hard work that is stealing the roses from mother's cheek. Help her
all you can now, lad, and free her
entirely just as soon as you are able.
If my boy ia being sent from a well-
to-do home on his weekly trip to the
washer-woman's to bring home the
clothes, then he is fortunate in that
he is the son of sensible parents.
Hoys should be sent upon errands upon every opportunity. They should
not he too proud to haul home the
washing on a home-made wagon. Show
me a boy who helps mother and isn't
ashamed to be seen helping her and
we'll show you a boy that will succeed in life's grim battle. Hauling
a tub full of washing, either way, to
or from, is a mighty good thing for
mama's   little  lamb.

THE Chevrolet valve-in-head motor has a
surplus of power—much more than
is ordinarily needed. Chevrolet has speed—
under favorable circumstances it will move
the speedometer to the top figure.
True, Chevrolet's maximum power and speed is
seldom, if ever, used by the average owner, but it
gives confidence to the driver to know that in case
of emergency this reserve of power and speed is at
his disposal.
Moreover, Chevrolet is built to withstand the strain
of speed and hard usage. The sturdy chassis; the
new, selective type transmission; the improved,
semi-floating type rear axle, with spiral bevel ring
gear and pinion, are all designed to give more than
ordinary service.
Because Chevrolet is built to stand the strain, it
continues to give economical transportation, even
after years of service.

The people of this district, trying
r years to bring to the attention of
e Department at Victoria, the advis-
lilily of a small appropriation for
e building of a road from tho Is-
nd Highway iu to "Elk Falls, a
atter of approximately 2 miles, aro
ently encouraged over the reported
ferenee to the matter of an appro- ,
■iation for roads in this constttu-
icy In  tlie speech  of the member- )
elect for Comox, Mr. Harrison, in a
recent address at Cumberland.
Mr. Harrison reference in his speech
both to the revenues which the Government receives from the Comox
constituency and to the disregard of
the Government to the wants of the
district, need no corroboration here.
II is safe to say, however, that Mr.
Harrison could Hnd no more fitting
return to his constituents than to secure an appropriation from the House
during the coming, session for the development of new roads and the proper maintenance of existing highways
and Campbell itiver hopes that when
his appropriation for litis work is presented 11 will include provision for
ihe opening of a first class road from
the Highway to the Falls.
Scenically, it is doubtfull whether
the whole of Vancouver Island can
produce any other single feature to
excel these fulls and it is not at ull
creditable to the Island, to the authorities, to our tourist bureaux, our
automobile clubs or any of our organizations having any interest in the
welfare of the Island, that 'Elk Falls'
has remained so almost ! accessible
up to the present time.
Campbell River is solidly ehind Mr.
Harrison in any effort to ii irove and

The
Cumberland
Islander
er, so-called, Is probably the most
dangerous. No man cun be expected
to keep full possession of his car
while he haa one arm around a woman. We see a good deal of thiB
kind of driving, and unless it ceases
the day may come when such drivers
will have to be dealt with as severely
as those suffering from Intoxication.
These drivers are not only endangering the lives ot the persons In their
own cars but the lives of pedestrians
and the lives of people riding tn other
cars.
A man who drives on our highways
with one arm around a woman is a
real menace and should be deprived
of his privilege to operate a car. No
self-respecting girl should permit
such a breach of etiquette ln public.
THE DISABILITIES OF
LIVING
If you haven't an automobile, you
are out of everything, Including debt.
If a friend presents you with a watermelon, you can't get It home conveniently. If you wish to go anywhere
not on a railroad or street care lino,
you must call a taxi, or depend upon
a friend who owns a car, and you and
your car-owning friends are seldom
interested in going to the same place.
If you walk, you may be run over.
It's one thing to want to do a
good job.
It's another thing to know how
to do it.
Just one thing after another.
Simple, when you have the combination!
WE HAVE

COMBINATION!
