W. N. Kennedy Will Again
Attempt To Beat All
Comers at Shawnigan Lake
Popular Local Athlete Will Again Compete in the North Pacific
Amateur Oarsmens' Regatta.
For the first time in the History of the Sport, Comox will
be represented at the North Pacific Association of amateur oarsmen's regatta which will be held on the Twentieth and Twenty-
first instant at Shawnigan Lake. Approximately one hundred
oarsmen, the cream of aquatic athlets of the Pacific North-west,
Seattle, Portland, Vancouver, Victoria and Coruer-d-Alene, Idaho,
will be represented by the greatest gathering of oarsmen in the
history of the association. Interest in the coming water carnival
in Comox District is centered in the activities of "Billie Kennedy"
who held the senior singles championship for several years loosing in 1921 to George Kingsley a pupil of his. Billie did not row
last year being too interested in the lumber business to have time
to train, but, this year is coming back strong and by faithful
training on the waters of Comox Bay has brought himself to that
physical protection which can only spell success and the bringing
of a senior championship to Comox this year.
For some weeks he has been on the | on the championship of Victoria nnd
water every day in his rowing shell
which is the smallest on the Pacific
coast being only ten inches wide
twenty-eight feet long and weighing
barely fifty pounds. It ls worthy ot
note that Kennedy holds the record
tor the Portland Course doing the'
distance In ten minutes; for the Vancouver course which he covered in
9.40. These two records have never
beeu equaled and Billie will do his
utmost this year to try and beat his
own time. The rowing shell used by
the local athlete ls the ilrst one ever
seen ln Comox District or ln fact ln
nny of the waters north of Vancouver. Comox Bay Is an ideal place tor
training and Billie is making his headquarters at the Elk Hotel.
The rowing record of the local
champion shows that since 1910 he
has been a very active athlete, in
that year winning the junior singles
nt Vancouver; then In the same regatta entered the senior singles and
won the Pacific Coast Championship.
In 1911, 1913 and 1914 and to 1919
he held the senior singles championship of the Pacific Coast.
For a period of four years, on account of the war there were no regattas held, but tn 1920 on the resumption of these water carnivals
Kennedy repeated his past performances retained the senior champion
fship In a gruelling contest held at
Shawnigan Lake. In 1911, 1913 and
1914 at Seattle, Vancouver and Portland respectively he won the International senior singles championship.
, ln 1914 and 1020 he and his rowing
mate won the senior doubles.
Kennedy also holds the British Columbia senior shingles championship
for 1909 to 1920 inclusive. In 1914 at
Nelson, B, C. he lost a match race by
a few feet with Butler ot Toronto
champion of Canada and America. In
the paddling event at the various regattas he has been singularlly successful winning the singles in 1920
at Vancouver In 1911 at Shawnigan,
ln 1913 at Portland and 1920 at
Shawnigan. Senior doubles 1910
Vancouver, 1911 Shawnigan, 1920

1911 Vancouver; International doubles 1911 Vancouver; International
singles 1913 Portland; B. C. singles
1910 Vancouver; 1911 Shawnigan,
1913 Victoria; 1920 Vancouver.
Greater interest is being taken tn
this years regatta than in any that
has yet been held, a larger number of
entries having been received than for
any of the events that have been held
ln the past. Besides Blllie's record
as an oarsman his showing in land
events has also been remarkable, he

Mr. Kennedy had hoped to have organized a water carnival to be held on
Comox Bay this summer, and there
Is more than mere possibility that
if the British Cruiser Curlew which
ls now visiting the Pacific Coast
cnmes to Comox a series of aquatic
events will be held.
Blllie's host of friends in this district where he is popular manager
of the Bevan saw mill will wish him
the best of luck in his efforts to regain the North Pacific Championship
at Shawnigan Lake next week.
Following the permission of the
Council for the use of a practice
room, and of the Police Commissioners
for tlie Chief to instruct the members,
no time has been lost In organising
the band. The project will appeal to
all who have the Interest of our boys
at heart, for as the Chief has pointed
out,' there is really nothing to attract their attention and interest
from the thoughtless indulgence ln
boyish mischief, which often eventually lands them into disgrace.  ~"
Already, we understand, four fifes
and two drums have been donated,
and, ns the practices will commence
on Tuesday next at 7 p.m. the citizens
With their usual generosity will no
doubt quickly see that the band is
equipped with the necessary Instruments. A fife will cost about $4,
small drums about $15, and a bass
drum about $20. The Instruments
will be obtained at the lowest possible

A fair sized crowd sat in what
turned out to be a batting practise
for the Royston Japanese last Saturday.
The Japs started off right from the
gong and when the first inning closed
were leading 7—0 but the Cumberland Intermediates were not to be
kept down, although the break
seemed to come wrong, and nobody
could get properly settled Into the
game, until the line up was somewhat shifted. Then they performed
in their usual style, but all was in
vain as their rivals had a good lead
and were still playing snappy ball
and hitting In big league style.

Ot the Royston team all played
good ball, behind tha reliable pitching

The game ended with a well deserved victory for the Royston Mill

watch as lt appears on paper.

The closest game so far played this
year in the Inter-League was played
by the Bevan club last Wednesday
evening on the Recreation Grounds,
when the hard hitting Royston Mill
team were defeated by a close margin after seven innings, which gave
the fans plenty of excitement, especially ln the last few innings.
Bevan started right trom the lump
and crossed the rubber twice, and
back came the Japs and went them
one better.
From then on both teams tightened
up and not till the fourth did things
hum, when the Japanese aided with
a couple ot bad errors and hits, did
they score two more. Bevan found
their batting eye in the fifth scoring,
three runs tying the score again in
the sixth they repeated the dose,
while their opposition remained contented with one in the fifth and
Bevan played good ball ln the closing Innings and struck out the first
two men up In the last Inning, while
the third was an easy out.
Bevan presented a different team to
what appeared at Bevan last game
and seemed to be good ball. The rest
of the teams had better keep their
strong line-up, for this ts a team to
be reckoned with before the season

Through Us Or In Spite of Us?
When the war was on and this
country was putting forth every effort, at home and overseas, to aid
the allied cause, a great spirit of confidence and faith, of willingness to
work, economize and sacrifice, filled
every class of the community from
the highest to the lowest.
As a result, Canada's honourable
war record has set her high among
the nations, with a place at the Imperial Council table and a voice ln International affairs.
Canada must and will come, with
equal honour, through the troublous
times of post-war adjustment. The
only question Is, will all of us help—
or some of us hinder, by pessimism,
apathy, or class Jealousy?
To the Canadian farmer this question comes with a peculiar force. Agriculture must- be the economic balance wheel of this or any nation. It
ls an occupation where nature herself demands energy, courage, economy, and efficiency. These sturdy
qualities radiate from our farms to
Industries in other walks of life,
where so many leaders were country
born add bred.
The farm home and farm life as
the source of what has been and Is
the strongest and truest In our national character is interwoven with
the history of Canada from Its Infancy. The settlers on the shores of
New Brunswick and Nova Scotia, tolling to clear a patch of forest and
sowing their grain among the stumps;
Hebert and the pioneers of New
France, fighting Indians, enduring,
privations, wresting merely a rude
living from their small clearings, but
full ot faith in the future, If not for
them, then for generations yet to
come; the men who rescued Upper
Canada from the wilderness; the Red
River colonists, who, after two years
of complete destruction of their
crops, sent a party to the Mississippi
for seed grain for the next year and
won! These men made possible the
Canada today.
The farmers of Canada, then, have
a rich history and a noble tradition
to live up to. Upon them Canada's
progress has always, in the main, depended; upon them It will always, in
the main, depend.
What, then, Is necessary for the
farmers of today? Simply the application of thoBe qualities we have referred   to—energy,    courage,    economy
and efficiency, and under present-day
conditions the return ls sure and
speedy. A very high percentage of
farms owned by farmers ln this
country have been ecquired and paid
for in the farmer's own lifetime. For
the present and future generations
there is exactly tiie same opportunity.
True, with each generation, and perhaps oftener, we may have to change
our type of crops to meet changing
market requirements, but surely that
is a trifling task composed with that
of those who had to establish themselves In a new country, create their
farm, their community, their markets, and their civilization.
During the war years, the farmer,
like most others, became unreasonably optimistic. As In other Industries, he over-capitalized, tied up too
much money lu extravagant buildings and expensive machinery,
bought tractors to get the crops in
more quickly and easily, without con
sideling whether the actual earning
power of these warranted the Invest
ment. With the depression, which
ltas followed, this over-expenslon has
been a serious burden and has shaken
the faith of some In ultimate success.
We must get back the indomitable
courage and untiring effort of Canada's early days. The farmer must
remember that In the last analysis he
ls infinitely better off than the wage-
earner of the city. True, his cash Income may sometimes be small, but
lie can, at the very worst, gain his Hv
ing from the soil, while in the city
the larger wage soon melts away in
paying for things which on the farm
involves no cash outlay. The farm
products are necessities of life and
must always command a market. The
products of city industries must often create their market and their sale
Is subject to wide fluctuations. Sure
of a market, then, the farmers' main
problem is simply the lowering of
cost of production to permit of a fair
margin of profit even at present prlc
es. This can be done and is being
We may call attention to the advertisement placed ln this Issue by
the Federal Department of Agriculture. It Is more than an advertisement, it is a call to united and cheerful effort, a summons to the Canadian spirit of the "will to win" which
has burned so brightly throughout
Canada's history—a spirit which is
so well shown in a message received
In Ottawa only a few days ago from
one of the foremost farmers of the
Province of Alberta. He says: "It
started to rain the last part of the
week, and this coming after the recent
heavy rains has put the soil in a con
ditlon that It has not been in at this
time of the year since 1916; the farm'
ers are consequently very jubilant
and If optimism could pay debts the
farmers of Southern Alberta could by
next fall cancel our National Debt.

"Year by year, the rural life of the
west Is suffering from the loss of Its
young men and women because the
farming communities are allowed to
become uninteresting." says Mr. H.
Curie, Secretary of the Manitoba
Board, Retail Merchants' Association
of Canada, in a recent article.
This is true, not only of the west
but of every other part of Canada.
The greatly extended educational
opportunities enjoyed by the young
generation of today have developed
a variety of interests-that would,
and frequently does, amaze our
These hardy ancestors of pioneer
days had but little leisure to hang
heavily on their hands, and when they
did Indulge in a pleasure trip to
town ,the long, hard journey over
hard roads was generally justified by
business motives as well.
lint new machinery and methods
have changed all that.
The young men and women on tlle
farm today have leisure and tliey
demand leisure interests. If these
interests are lacking in tlie community where they live, or if tliey cannot conveniently reach a community
centre where these interests are available, the young folks leave the farm
and seek a more diversified life in the
larger centres.
Then comes the farmer's cry, "How
can I keep my boys on the farm?"
Tills is a vital problem with every
farmer and even more so with every
mother on the farm. To the old
folks the farm is home nnd often it
Is a lamily heritage, built for succeeding generations. But this fact
alone will not keep the children on
the land, and so, over nnd over again
the old tragedy is enacted, the heritage is renounced, the children go,
the family is broken up. and the rural communities lose the very life
blood of tlieir existence.
Then, when one asks. "How's business?"' the answer will lie: "It isn't
like it used to* be, because those who
made business! have gone.
But this condition does not exist
In communities where the community ns a whole has been sold on motor transportation. In fact, it is
true that you enn measure the prosperity of any community by tlle extent of its transportation facilities.
For, good transportation extends the
boundaries of the community, and
the sons and daughters of the farmer
who lives ten miles from the community church, but who have a car, can
participate in the entertainments and
social functions just as conveniently
as those who live only a mile away.
And it is just convenience such as
this more than anything else that
will keep the young folks on the'
No   city   family   nowadays   expects
tbe children to remain around the
fireside night after night or to limit
their pleasures to an occasional visit
among the neighbors. That would be
unreasonable in view of the plenitude
of good wholesome recreation that
they can enjoy such as theatres, parties; night schools, church and Sunday school activities, social functions, lectures, movies, dances and
so forth, to say nothing of the conveniences of libraries and fraternal
and athletic clubs.
City dwellers accept these things
as part of their everyday life, and
would find life mighty monotonous
without them.
And therein lies your answer to
the farmer's cry: "How can I keep
my boys on the farm?"
lt isn't the larm work that drives
the boys to the city and makes hired
labor hard to keep. It's the dally
monotony of farm life after working
hours, the long uninteresting, uneventful evenings, the humdrum sameness, night after night, week after
week, month after month, year after
year, world without end, amen.
Can you blame the young folks for
getting out?
Farm boys and girls are just like
city boys and girls.
They like company and parties and
entertainments and education and
culture and romance and debating
clubs and theatres and civic problems and every other single thing
that goes to make up a complete
The one way to keep them on the
farm ls to make those things available to them.
And those things are available to
the farm family that can step Into
Its Ford car and drive down the road
to the community centre that is the
heart of the social life of the district.
There ls an urgent need for more
enm on the farm. It ls being reiterated every day In every rural community In every part of Canada. For
every time that a farmer cries: "How
can I keep my boys on the farm?" he
Is shouting aloud his need for motor
How much Henry Ford has contributed to the contentment of the
young folks on the farm would be
difficult to estimate.
By giving the farmer the Fordson
tractor he eliminated much of the
back-breaking drudgery of field work
and the Fordson with belt equipment
has also changed the whole routine
of farm yard work.
But the Fordson has done a great
deal more than that. It has enormously reduced the time that needs be
spent In farm operations and has
spared the cost of performing these
operations down to an amazingly
low figure.
In other words, the Fordson has
cut down the working day nnd the
working costs, has given the farmer
greatly extended leisure and a great

"The Abysmal Brute" Stands
Forth as One of Best Productions of the Year.
Page by page in every way it lol-
lows the book to the letter.
This Coueistic expression aptly describes the fidelity with which Hobart Henley followed the printed
story, "The Abysmal Brute," which
opens at the Ilo-Ilo theatre on Friday
and Saturday with Reginald Denny as
the star.
Transcribing the book to the screen
exactly as It was set forth In thc
great author's work, this celluloid
transplantation  of one  of  the   most
appealing stories ever conceived,
proves far more entrancing on Ihe
screen than lt did In binding. The
broad scope of tbe camera enhances
thc story with scenic value, plus a
personality registered on the screen
by Denny, far lu excess of the written
expression of even such a great author as Jack London.
The story concerns a young prize
fighter who finally succumbs to the
heart punches of Cupid, and becomes
engaged to a social leader without divulging his life's "vocation." How
she spurns him when she discovers
that he Is a "box-ilghter," only to
have him whisk her away In caveman fashion and lead her to the al-
tur, forms a theme that for genuine
heart Interest, comedy, pathos and
drama, will undoubtedly stand as a
cinema monument.
Denny ls perfectly at home in the
title role, through his former pugilistic endeavors in real life, and gives a
portrayal tlfat will win him both feminine and masculine admirers, and
[irmly establish him at a matinee idol
and box office attraction extraordinary. Mabel Julienne Scott is equally as convincing in the leading feminine role, while others who do much
toward making the picture the instant hit that it is, are David Torrence

Mr. O'Brien's following made no
mistake in demanding that their favorite appear in this typo of picture,
lt is perhaps the best suited of his
career. He is extremely well fitted

The story is by Jack London, one of the greatest writers of vigorous, dramatic,

The enormous destruction ot our

of the most unsettling elements in
the commercial future of Canada.

people nnd at the same time continue to regard apathetically the red
holocaust which is robbing the nation
of one of Its most indispensable resources. Without the forest, only a
very amnll portion ot our  business
| activities in Canada could continue a
twelve-month. The whole ot the
non-agricultural area of the Donlnl-
I on would be stripped of population,
except for mining communities. The
railways would be robbed of a main
source of freight traffic. Hundreds
of great wood-using industries would
cease operating, and the basic forest
materials entering Into the conduct of
fruit growing, and so forth, would
climb to such prohibitive price levels
I as to handicap fatally the Canadian
We must stop the forest Area or face
commercial consequences thnt no Canadian cares to contemplnte. If more
rangers, better patrols, better equipment and educational propaganda will
prevent such fires, then our provincial
governments, owning the forest lands
nnd drawing millions ot dollar* from
royalties and dues on the forest resources, should not hesitate to spend,
not merely a quarter or a sixth of their
forest revenues on Are prevention, as
as present, but three quarters or more
until by human organization we huve
driven the flre Hend Into a corner. The
forest resources are now too far reduced to permit of any further inroads

ln mind always that the forests of today are partly owned by future generations. In the words of Ruskln: "We

In 1922 there was received from the sale of such timber the sum of $620,000.

The Mother Country's Purchases
Q. Does Canada supply the United
Kingdom with any large part of her
timber  requirements?
A. Only with about ten per cent.
The United Kingdom draws more than
85 per cent of her forest needs from
outside the Empire. This ls due
chiefly to the great difference In
freight rates as between Canada and
the Scandinnvlan countries.
What Is a 'Limit r
Q. What is the strict meaning of a
'timber  limit'?
A. The province of Ontario, New
Brunswick, and British Columbia
own und ndmlnlster their forest resources. Leases of timher cutting
rights are made to varloua commercial companies, renewnble once a
year, and the aren thus lensed Is
termed a 'limit' or 'berth.' The provinces mentioned retain ownership of
practically all their forest lands, ex
cept New Brunswick which has  alienated about one third.
Prices 75 years ugo
Q. What were lumber prices In
Canada about 1850?
A. White pine, the chief construction timber, was about $13 a thousand feet, as against five or six times
that at the present day. It is the accepted opinion that Canada and the
United States will never again Bee
an era of 'cheap lumber' as the toll
ot* forest fires, set mostly by human
recklessness, has so reduced the
stands that raw material must remain very high in market value. Unlike wheat or chickens, new cropB of
timber cannot be grown in a year
but must await at least a century. The

part of setting forest flres.
Officials of the department of labor
in their annual report, show that in

The electric equipment of a home to-day, no matter how simple thut home may be, is a scientilic 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
Considering the importance of the electrical equipment of the honie, nothing should be left to chance.
The wiring should beright, illumination properly provided for, electrical outlets conveniently placed and
the materials und 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.

Acadians to Visit Grand Pre

"VHE "kind of Evangeline" will
' become the scene of another
celebration on August 9th. At a
meeting of the Grand Pre Memorial
Committee recently held at Moncton,
arrangements were made for an excursion to Grand Pre on that day.
Special trains will carry people from
all point? in Nova Scotia to the little
town from whence the long suffering Acadians were deported by the
English in 1755, and it is anticipated
that people will join the excursionists from all pads nf the Dominion
and the United Slates
One of the features ol the day's
programme will be the unveiling, in
the Memorial Chapel, of a statue of
the Madonna, which will be erected
in recognition of the noble work
accomplished by the Acadian National Societe L'Assoinptionj the
Madonna being the patron saint of
this society. The statue, which is

As conditions are not as bright as

works of art lhat the interior of

Canada Confident
of the Future
CANADA is endeavoring to regain her
after-the-war stride
in the midst of many
«*" difficulties, — debt,
deflation and depression being
some of them.
Quack remedies and academic
theories beset her path on every
side. Some suggest that our debt
worries can best be eased by going further into debt. Others
preach blue ruin, decry their own
country and indulge in mischievous propaganda generally,
while still others look for a new
social order or some miraculous
sign to indicate a better coming
day—all this in apparent forget-
fulness of the fact that just as
there was no royal road to win
the war, there is now no royal
road to pay for it or regain our
former buoyancy, vigor and
Some are leaving Canada hoping to escape taxation, only to
find there is no escape anywhere.
In seeking for easy remedies too
many of us overlook the fact
that the greatest remedy is honest, hard work faithfully and
intelligently performed, accompanied by old-fashioned thrift.
It takes time, it takes patience,
it takes grit. But every Canadian
knows in his heart that Canada
is coming through all right.
Our Experience Proves It
Look back over the path Canada
has trod. The French Colonists,
cut off from civilization by 3,000
miles of sea, faced a continent—
a wilderness—without the aid of
even a blazed trail. They had
to fight savages, frosts, scurvy,
loneliness and starvation.
The United Empire Loyalists
subdued an unbroken forest in
one generation, growing their
first wheat amid the stumps and
snags of the new clearing.
The Selkirk settlers came to
Manitoba when the prairie was a
buffalo pasture, and grew wheat
where none had grown before
and where those who knew the
country best at that time said
wheat would never grow. Today the Canadian prairies grow
the finest wheat in the world.
In proportion to population Canada
stands to-day among the wealthiest
nations in the world, with average
savings on deposit per family of
$800. Canada's foreign trade per head
of population stands amongst the
highest of the commercial nations,
being $192 per capita in 1922-23, as
compared with $135 in 1913-14, the
"peak" year before the war.
New Opportunities for
-   Canada
In Canada, although prices in the
world markets fell below war level,
our farmers reaped last autumn the
largest grain crop in Canadian history, and Canada became the world's
largest exporter of wheat, thus in
large measure making up for lower
Last year, Great Britain, after an
agitation extending over thirty years,
removed the embargo on Canadian
cattle, and a profitable and practically
unlimited trade is opening up for
Canadian stockers and feeders.

that they have an aggregation lined
up that will give either Cumberland
or Courtenay a hard game. Among
the men at the camps near the river
are some players who have had big
league experience and these are the
players depended upon to form the
nucleus of the first class team. A Held
near the hotel has been secured for
the use of the team and Nie. Balo, a

and adviser. Interest in the pastime
has become keen as the Indians in
the northern corner of the district
also have a good team, being especially strong in tho pitching department. Games will be arranged with
Courtenay and Cumberland after next
Sunday and some lively tilts are to be
expected. Courtenay plays at Cumberland tomorrow In the first of a
