NOVEL WAY TO
DEMONSTRATE GLASSES
Mr. R. Kaplansky, the eyesight
specialist takes some big chances to
demonstrate the worth of his work.
The genial "Kap" called in the office the other day to pay a small account, and as the operator needed
his glasses repaired, he Instructed
the optician to make a good job ot
his glasses, as being a most expensive
pair of lenses he desired a good job.
"Kap" arrived at the office a little
later in the day, and to the consternation of the members of the office
staff, he threw the glassos on the
floor, the full length of the office.
After retrieving them the operator
looked them over carefully and exclaimed "by gad, some 'yob!"
ALL THE BROTHERS
WERE VALIANT
At Ilo-Ilo Theatre Friday and
Saturday
One of the most dramatic stories
which Ben Ames Williams ever wrote
is "All the Brothers were Valiant."
This gifted artist of fiction has
achieved an enviable reputation in
the literary world, and his stories in
the Saturday Evening Post have won
for him a host of admirers. To many
of his readers, "AU the Brothers" is
the best story he has ever produced.
The news that this vivid whaling
story hns been made ln to a motion
picture by Metro, under the careful
and skilled hand of Irvln V. Willat,
has made photoplay fans eager lo
see it. According to advance reports,
the plcturlzatlon ls even more thrilling than the exciting narrative, and
Its gripping scenes hold oue even
more completely than the written
version.
As those who have read the story
will remember that "All the Brothers Were Valiant" tells of a cruise
of a whaling schooner, of which Joel
Shore is captain. Joel ls thc last of
a long line of seamen, all of whom
had met their end valiantly. Mark
Shore alone cannot be accounted for.
He has suddenly disappeared from
his ship: and nothing more has been
heard from him.
Mark suddenly appears on Joel's
schooner, when the vessel ls anchored. He gives a vivid story of his unusual experiences during his absence. He tells of a hunt for pearls;
of his affair with a little brown girl;
of killing the pearl fishers In order
to get their loot; and finally of burying the pearls on a nearby Island.
Mark suggests to Joel that they
seek the pearls. Joel declines to
risk his ship and his life, and so incurs the enmity of his brother. From
here the story becomes increasingly
thrilling and dramatic. A mutiny, a
clash between the brothers, a realistic combat between members of the
crew—tHese. arc some of tlie Incidents which bring the picture to a
swiftly moving close.
In the cast arc players ot recognized artistry. Lon Chaney Is seen
In the role of Mark; Malcolm McGregor portrays thc part of Joel; and
the charming Billie Dove enacts the
part of Priscilla, Joel's wife. Others
who have Important parts arc William H, Orlamond. Robert McKlm,
Bob Kortinan, Otto Brower, Curt
Rehfeld, William H. Mong- and Leo
Willis.

Foundling Story Has Unlimited
Human Appeal—Bessie Love
and Gareth Hughes in Cast.
"Forget-Me-Not," the Metro picture
which comes to the Ilo-Ilo Theatre
on Monday and Tuesday reproduces
with great fidelity the life story of
two foundlings.
In the orphanage where her mother had left her as a baby, Ann Gor.
don had found one congenial soul,
another foundling named Jimmy. But
.one day there comes a rich woman
who choses Jlmmle for adoption and
Ann Is left alone. The other children eventuality find homes but no
one wants the little girl with a
cripple leg. .A Btreet musician takes
pity on her. and she goes to share his
meagre one-room home. Thus Ihe
paths of the two childhood sweethearts diverge but through the long
years Ann carries the memory of
Jimmy and from it drams Inspiration and courage In her struggle to
become a successful violinist.
lt is a story of faith and love and
yearning for happiness that Is thoroughly human from beginning to end.
The orphans are played by Gareth
Hughes and Bessie Love who make the
characters so lovable and so pitiful
that there is a constant tug at the
| heart strings.
"Forget-Me-Not" is a Louis Bur-
ston production, written by Henry R.
Symonds and adapted hy John B.
Clymer. It wns directed by W. S.
Van Dyke.

crowning of the chosen fair queen. Queen Olga sitting on her
throne surrounded by her attendants and .pages made a charming
picture. The gowns worn by the queen, her maids of honor, Mis-
ses Edith O'Brien, Mabel Jones, Olive Richardson, and Jessie
Grant, and the costumes of thc two pages, little Jimmy Tremlett
and Harry Mordy, were truly beautiful. Songs by the children followed the coronation, after which Queen Olga made an appropriate
speech.

The electric equipment of a home to-day, no matter how simple thut 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 tor a house not to
be thoroughly equipped for every phase of electrical
service.
Considering the importance of the 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 tlie sanitary engineer knows better than you do what your house requires, ln these cases, if you are wise, you select a
man whom you know to be qualified in overy 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.

Hon. J. D. MacLean, minsiter of
railways, has returned from a thorough Inspection of thc Pacific Great
Eastern Railway and reports the line
In splendid condition, despite the
handicaps naturally encountered. The
new schedule of operation provides
for a bi-weekly passenger and freight
service to Qucsnel and a trl-weekly
service In Lillooet from Squamish.
Tlie new sleeping-car accommodation
Is meeting with approval all along
the line.
Hon. Dr. MacLean predicts that
the operating deficit this year will be

The Pacific Great Eastern Railway
that  unwelcome  foundling  inherited
by the Oliver Government from    its
predecessor, ts becoming a real railway at last.    So reports Hon. J. D.
j MacLean, minister of railways, who
1 has returned from an  Inspection of
! the government line.    The rosd-bed
' ia in good condition and plans have
been completed for the provision of
a  good service this year.    Sleeping
| cars and a dining car have been ad-
l ded to the equipment and travellers
are now able to make the trip to and
from Quesnel In comfort.
The minister stated that while the
province Is shouldering over $40,-
000,000 of a burden in carrying the
P.G.E. still there Is no way of getting rid of the obligation, and his
determination Ib to turn it Into a genuine asset. A strong bid is being
made tor a fair share of the tourist
business coming to the province this
year, and before the summer Is over
plans will have been completed for
the settling of many new farmers
along the line.

Because it is the greatest of all womanly
charms, a skin which is fresh, smooth, and
alluring with the radiance of health, predicts
a happy future.
Don't be content to have a lifeless, sallow
and blemished complexion—begin at once to
remedy these defects.
Every girl can have a beautiful attractive
skin if she will only learn to give it proper
care.
Thorough cleansing with a line mild soap
once a day, is the secret. Cold cream is beneficial when applied to a clean skin, and rouge
and powder are harmless beautifiers—but—
start fresh every day on a clean foundation.
Keep your skin active and it will be clear,
fresh, youthful and attractive.
Soap to be thorough need not be harsh.
Tbe mildest toilet soap is the most thorough
of cleansers, as you will know after you try
Palmolive.
Its mildness and thoroughness are due ta
the same source—the scientific blending of
Palm and Olive oils, the natural cleansers
discovered thousands of years ago in ancient
Egypt and made use of by Cleopatra.
Palmolive freshens, livens and stimulates
the skin, leaving it delightfully fresh and
rosy.

P„ leader of the opposition, that
when in opposition many years ago
Mr. Oliver refused to support Sir Richard McBride In the latter's efforts |
to secure equalization of freight
rates.
"Becnuse I am fighting hard for
the interests or the province and
making considerable headway ln
this regard. Mr. Bowser naturally I
makes light of my efforts and seeks j
to place me in a wrong position,"
commented Premier Oliver. "However, here I have the goods," and he
turned up the journals of the Legislature for 190". where It Is disclosed
that John Oliver moved a resolution,
seconded by Mr. Henderson, asking
that an investigation be made and
that the freight rates question be

was resolved In the affirmative and
representations were made to the
board of railway commissioners during their sessions In. Victoria.

DON'T BE A LAMB
Young men ot Cumberland, because of persistent kidding on the
part of a number of married ladies.
have decided to abandon thc practice
ot waiting outside Hie churches of
tills city on Sabbath evenings to meet
their lady loves and escort them to
their homes. Thc ladies who have
Interested themselves in causing the - believed him.
young men lo arrive at such a conclusion hnve also paid no little ntten-
lion to thc young ladles, urging them
not to keep company with the young
men who would not accompany them
to divine  worship.
The following little skit dld.jmich
to bring an end to tbe practice:
Mary had a little lamb;
It followed her to church.
And then he stood around the door
Like an owl upon n perch.
A little item in the court report of
a neighboring city paper contained
the germ of tragedy a few days ago.
It was only a paragraph In the day's
news and would hardly receive a passing thought from the casual reader.
A girl was being sent to the home for
delinquents, charged with vagrancy.
That was all. But somehow the
scene arosa bfore us and we saw her
standing before the judge in the court
room, the incarnation of humiliation
and despair.   Her hair was dlshevel-
; ed, her eyes were red with weepiug.
i She wrung her hands in abject mlse-
"Why don't the little lamb come in?"
Tlie   watchful   people   cried.
"Why, Mary told the silly thing
To wait for her outside."
So you, each gentle maiden,
May one nnd all still find
Some    mutton-head    outside
door,
If you're looking for that kind.
the
THE TATTLER
In an old, old volume, printed
more than one hundred years ago,
we came across the following "receipt to make a tattler."
"Take of the vino called Runabout,
and the root of Nimble Tongue, of
each six handfuls. fifteen ounces of
Ambition, the same quantity of Nonsense; bruise them well together in
the mortar of Misapprehension, then
boil them over the lire of Surmise,
till you perceive the scum of falsehood rising on the top; strain it
through the cloth of Misconstruction,
put it into the bottle of Malignity,
and stop it with the cork of Envy;
suck a draught through the quill of
Malevolence—and you will be prepared to speak all manner of evil,
without respect to persons or character."
In the brewing of slander and gossip we seem to still work by the old
roreipt of a century ago.
"Tell mc your story as quietly and
as briefly as you can," the Judge Insisted.
"He promised to marry me and 1
slio sobbed. "You see,
I grew up on a lonely farm, away off
i from   everybody  and  knew   nothing
about men. I never had a beau."
'.    "Poor child!" His Honor said, and
turned her over to the care of tho officer,
She' never had a beau!" It doeB
not require a professional phycholo-
gist to analyze and interpret the
hunger of that bleeding heart for
love, tlle craving of companionship,
tiie dreams of a husband to protect
her, of a home to keep and of children to mother and adore.
One only needs to have a heart to
understand nnd pity that lonely, Inexperienced and uncomprehending
girl. What could she know about
life, alone, on that wind-swept farm;
without books to read, without contact with people, and without a beau?
Small wonder that the door of her
heart swung wide to the first who
knocked and whispered thOBe tails-
manic words, "I love you."
Could mere instinct teach her untutored soul that he was a wolf ln
sheep's clothing? A devil garbed as
nn angel of light? What she needed
was knowledge of the world, of companionship. How different would
have been her fate If there had been
some stalwart and stouthearted young
man riding up to the door of her father's home and teaching her by
word of mouth and kiss the lip the
old sweet lesson of pure and honest
loving!
These city courts of Domestic Relations nre sordid places. There, it
anywhere, the tragedy of life is pite-
ously disclosed. But now and then,
in some such case as this, its infinite
pathos is revealed.
Nothing else in all the Immeasur-
I able round  of human  experience  is
so unutterably sad as the unsatisfied
hunger for love in the heart of a lonely woman.

THIS IS WEALTH
There are two places where we do
not care to live. One ls in a tenement house and the otlier is in a
palace. Pass the pale of modest
means and you Invade the realms of
unhappy riches or sleep In the attic.
To be able to fully enjoy ordinary
life Is a great accomplishment, for
few people really know how to live.
The choicest bits of pleasure and the
most lasting happiness you will find
within the bounds of modest living.
The plain people arc the truly prosperous people. If you have a good
job aud have good heolth, congratulate yourself. If you have escaped
both poverty and riches you are really  resourceful.
Thc struggle to get riches, the fear
in keeping them, the temptation to
abuse them, the pain In losing them
—these are tbe things that make
riches  an   unpleasant  responsibility.
Poverty is not so painful as pretense. Keeping up with the Joiiosob
Is as foolish ns trying to break the
record for endurance dancing, so prevalent at the present time.

A GUIDE TO ROSE GROWING
Mrs. Thomas Gwllt and Mrs. Fred.
Jeune are spending thc week nt Victoria having left by motor car on
Tuesday morning accompanied by
their children.
Although most persons who love
flowers desire to grow roses, many
who have planted a few bushes have
heen unsuccessful and have become
discouraged. To assist in overcoming tiie difficulties that gardeners
sometimes Ond in growing roses, the
Dominion Horticulturist has prepared a bulletin thnt deals with practically all phases of rose culture in
Canadian gardens. The bulletin is
entitled "Hardly Roses. Their Culture In Canada," and bears the official number 17 of the Department of
Agriculture at  Ottawa.
Tlie observation is made that certain species of roses are very easy to
grow and that those who are not
prepared to give tlio finer types the
attention their beauty merite, will
find ill the Rugosa hybrids, the Austrian briars, tlie Province or Cabbage, and the Damask roses a very
good assortment of roses that are
hardy and of easy, culture, requiring
bul little pruning, and not being
troubled by insect and fungous enemies.
It will be of interest lo learn that
tin; Experimental Farms have succeeded in producing a very beautiful rose of unusual hardiness. It is
a cross between Hugosa and Persian Yellow and lias been named Agnes.
Besides giving complete instructions as to soil, planting, pruning,
cultivation, winter protection, and
insect enemies, the bulletin gives
lists of various classes of garden roses that have succcsscd in Ottawa.
Tlie following varieties of Hybrid Per
pctuiils and Hybrid Teas have been
selected as a dependable collction of
reasonable hardy roses: Fray Karl
Druscliki. white; General Jacqueml-
ot, scarlet crimson; Her Majesty,
pink; Hugh Dickson, crimson; Mrs.
John Lalng. pink; Mrs. R. C. Shar-
man Crawfbrd, pink; Ulrlch Brunner
cherry red; Caroline Tcsout, pink;
General McArlhur, bright crimson
Gruss an Teplitz. bright crimson;
Lady Ashtown. pink; Lady Plrrie,
coppery pink; Madame Edouard Herein, coral red; Madam Ravary, yellow.
Recommended climbers arc American Pillar, Dorothy Perkins. Hiawatha, Tausemlschon.

Illustrated, is available at the Publications Branch, Department of Agriculture.   Ottawa.

rt^9f?4ffiankyhompson
NOTED CANADIAN GOLFERS
FUNDAMENTALS
There are a number of points about
the golf swing which the player need
not know anything of in order to play
excellent golf. Indeed, one might
go further and say that the knowledge of some paints is detrimental
to good golf, and especially is this
thc case If the player ls conscious
of them during the execution of a
stroke.
The golf swing may be likened to
the processes of life. Tiie average
person Is entirely ignorant of the
chemical action that goes on during
digestion, the circulation of the blood
or the action of tlie lungs, but this
lack of knowledge does not Interfere
with the enjoyment of life. These
processes are all revealed by analysis. Golf is very much thte same.
There are numerous points which are
revealed by study, and of which th*
good player is often Ignorant. Several examples suggest themselves
such as the transference of the
weight, what starts thc club down,
and what one thinks of whilo hitting the ball. These are all Interesting studies, but are more academic  than  practical.
The stars of the game In the past
were professionals, who, although
fine fellows with good liorse sense,
were for the most part illiterate men
incapable of making any sustained
mental application. Their mental
deliciencies. ns such, did not interfere with tlieir playing fine golf.
Those of us who must reflect should
remember there are a goodly number whose games are ruined by too
much theorizing, or perhaps I should
say too little, for as some one has
said, it in not n little learning that is
a dangerous tiling, but being satis-
lied with a little. The man who
plays a good gome and knows how
he plays, is in my opinion vastly superior to tlle person who just plays,
a good game. The latter's game is
more easily demoralized. With the
above qualification most golfers
would make quicker progress if they
concerned themselves with the fundamentals only of the gume.
The beginner should always remember trat the driving of a golf
ball Is first and last subject to certain laws. It is a question of mechanics. Determined by the formula i/2 MV. 2, whicli Is half thc mass
by thc velocity squared. That is if
one player can swing a thirteen-
ounce club twice as fast as another
player, four times the amount of
energy Is put Into the shot by the
swifter swing. It is not the weight
then that drives tlie ball so much as
the speed of the blow. If one can
swing a fourteen-ounce club as fast
ns a thlrtcen-ounce one, by all
means use the heavier club. The
practical problem for the golfer is
to use the heaviest club which will
give the maximum of speed.
The golf swing may nt, considered
as made up of two parts, the swing
of the arms and the twist of the body,
and these two nre not casually dependent on each other. One may have
a faulty pivot nnd a line wrist action—or vice versa. Success at golf
depends on bow well the golfer can
make thenc two movements blend so
thnt they appear to the spectator one
movement, and feel thnt way to the
player. It Is when one of these
movements works In opposition to the
other that the game becomes such a
labored effort to the player, and appears so awkward tn the spectator.
In watching the star players, the
movements arc so smooth and harmonious that no Jerk or section Is
apparent. The golf swing Is not
made up of seel Ions as some would
have us believe, but commences as a
complexity. Although the swing is
complex from its Inception, it Is also
unified. At different points we are
able to say that the movements arc
fuller and more vigorous, but never
can we say that one ends here while
another starts some place else. This
is important for practical golf, for if
one builds up the swing in parts
sooner or later It must be unified. So
why not start this way, and the
chances are the swing will remain
so. A good tip given me by an International player, Is to start the
swing with the hands, left knee, and
left shoulder working together. The
motion pictures show this to be the
case with good players.
Ono cannot drive a hall far by the
employment only of the arms and
hands with the body restricted. The
body must twist or pivot, and the
way the body pivots  Is very essen
tial. This will be taken up when
"balance" is dlscussscd, iu a future article. The swing should form
an arm more in the nature of an ellipse than a circle, and the plane
of the arch will depend on the build
of the player.
As has been pointed out before,
players in addition to being stout,
medium of slim, differ greatly In
the nature and character of their
ankle, wrist, hip and other joints,
and to evpect everyone to awing a
club the same way is ridiculous. The
net of the swing should always be
smooth and free, without any jerk.
Every swing will be more or less
flat and should be (assuming the
stance Is square) Inside the direction line both on the back swing and
follow through, except for a few indies before and after impact, which
will lie along the direction line.
From experiment it has been found
that the hardest blow can be dell.
vered when the arms are in pretty
close to the body, but not when they
arc tucked in so close as to be uncomfortable. In any event one
should not reach for the ball too
much. When thc blow ls struck It
is surprising how similar is the position of the body to that of the address. Whenever the right elbow Is
allowed to slip away too far from the
body in the up swing, a certain
amount of power Is lost. Players who
find a decrease In the length of their
drives will be well advised to examine the right elbow in regard to
this point. One should not go to the
other extreme of cramping the move-
| ments, for freedom is never to be
sacrificed.
It is a good working principle for
: the golfer to remember that the left
arm    and    thc    culb   should    form
j straight   lines,   although   not   contl-
| nuous ones.    Tho player, of course,
can  nnly   approximate   this.    There
should   not,  however, be  any    pro-
' nounced  bending  nt  the  left  elbow
; ill the nature of a hinge, tor then a
! jerk ls introduced into the swing re-
| suiting in n loss of power. Rigidity
I of thc left arm should be avoided. It
is quite possible to have thc left arm
practically  straight  without  tautening tlie muscles.

WHEN the Canadian Pacific steamship! "Marloch"
and "Metagama" last docked at St. John, Canada gained to the extent of over six hundred able-
bodied and Industrious farmers, farm workers and
women from the Hebrides. Forced by the loss of
their fishing trade through the war and German competition, and by general hard times to leave their
thatched homes, these people have come to a land of
promise and have been welcomed as the most valuable
Immigrants in years. Under the leadership of Rev.
Alexander J. Gillies and Rev. John MacMillan, they
have gone to the Red Deer district of Alberta and to
various parts of Ontario, where they will engage in
agriculture.
Most of them are from ths island of South Uist,
Benbecular and Barra. Here their families worked
small farms of from ten to twenty acres and kept a
stock of from two to eight cattle and ten sheep on
common pasturage. In tne spring (hey gathered seaweed for fertilizer, planted oats, barley, rye and
potatoes, and when this was done took to the lea,

some to engage in fishing, which brought bnt small
monetary return, and others to Join ths merchant
marine. In the fall thost who war* near returned
home, harvested ths small crop and thatched their
houses. But there was mt work for all. It was
of no use to fish when there was no market and one
man could do the work of the farm which produced
but little. The wolf was at every door, almost, and
the emigration officer received more application* for
Information and later assistane* than he could com.
fortably handle.
These people having arrived and received welcome
have already buckled down to work. Th*lr losses at
home have contributed to Canada's gain. A large
party have gone to Red De*r where they will build
their own church and school, and ln addition to Eng-
llsh they will retain their own native Gaelic tongue.
Ths remainder of the immigrants hav* besn split up
as hired men ln various parti of Ontario. Over four
hundred were passenger* on th* "Marloch," th* rest

Mr. and Mrs. J. Westover motored

Mrs. A. Haywood.

Miss Brown, Matron of the Cumberland General Hospital and Miss Sehl
motored to Victoria on Wednesday.
lt is learned that Capt. K. G. Hal-
ley, who has been Supervisor for the
Laud Settlement Board at Mervllle
and his asslstent Capt. Copes, have
been released from further service.
This probably presages a move to
grant the settlers at Merville their
freedom from Board control, placing
the responsibility for success or fall
ure directly upon themselves. While
the services of n supervisor, whose
duties have been carried out by
Capt. Halley, will not be necessary
it is believed that a move ln the
right direction would be taken if the
appointment of on agricultural Instructor were mode to serve the
Mervllle Area. He would have to be
a man who understands pioneering
work and nlso have an intimate
knowledge of agricultural pursuits
—his education along these lines
having being learned from hard experience rather than from text books.
The problem of Mervllle will be,
even ufter the re-assessment figures
hnve been considered a most serious one, ono that cannot be over-
conic by tlie appointment of a "joke"
supervisor or agriculturist.
