In Cup Series-
Defeat Ladysmith

Hard Fought Game at Ladysmith ends in 1—0, Victory
. for Nanaimo. Tommy Dickenson, the Shining Light.—
Stobbart Scores After 13
Minutes Play.
SOCCER GAME
TO-DAY SATURDAY
The replayed Connaught Cup game
between Nanaimo and Ladysmith,
took place on Saturday last on the
ground of the Ladysmith Team. A
crowd bordering on 2,000 was present and they got thrill after thrill, although the game did not come up
to the one the previous week. Nanaimo made several changes tn their
line up. Ladysmith relying on the
same team with the exception of F.
Strang who replaced BUI Rafter on
tbe extreme right.     '
Fowler kicked off on time for Nanaimo, and a raid on the Ladysmith
goal followed, the backs kicking out
to relieve the pressure.
The Nanaimo team were certainly
assuming the aggressive, the Ladysmith backs being forced to resort
to the kicking-out process. After 13
minutes play, Stobbart, who was lying in a nice position received the
ball from Fowler and with a beautiful
shot beat Boyd. This scccss put
more pep ln the Nanaimo boys and a
regular bombardment of the Ladysmith goal followed. Boyd clearing
time after time In superb fashion.
Ladysmith forwards tried desperately to get going, but all to no prpose.
Houston being the only forward who
appeared able to do anything. Half-
time arrived with Nanaimo pressing.
The Second Half
The second halt opened at a fast
clip with Ladysmith assuming the
aggressive, but the sterling work
of Tommy Dickenson kept them
from scoring. Time after time Dickenson saved what appeared to be a
most dangerous raid, and there ls not
the slightest doubt that had a weaker back than Dickenson been on, Ladysmith would soon have been in
the lead. It was extremely hard lines
for Tuffy Davis and his forwards
that a score did not materialize, they
did everything but score. McCormack
collided with Dickenson and had to
leave the Held for the remainder of
the game. Ladysmith with 10 men
were still playing a wonderful game,
and were practically all over their
opponents, except Dickenson. Tommy
was there every lime, playing a cool
heady game, otherwise there would
have been a different Btory. A few
minutes from the finish Battle had a
glorious chance to equalise, wben he
had an open goal to shoot at, but
he failed miserably. This was the
last incident in a ding-dong game.
Time was called with Nanaimo winning by the one goal.
Referee Jones of Cumberland,
handled the game in a most excellent
manner and judging from the way In
which he handled the players and
the knowledge of the game he discloses, he Is the peer of all referees
In the province.
Nnnaimd play the Vancouver I.
.I* A. F. team at Vancouver (today)
Saturday, in the next round. Cumberland being at home to the Davenport
team.
Ladysmith protested the abot|!
game and a replay was ordered for
Thursday evening last.
The teams met at Ladysmith and
after a hard fought game, whicli
went into the overtime period, Nanaimo emerged victorious by the odd
goal, scored ln the last half ot the
overtime period by Fowler, Nanalmos
oentreforward. Two minutes from
the close of the game Frank Strang
wns carried on* the field. Report has
It that this popular player sustained
n broken leg.

CASE ADJOURNED
An event of district wide Importance took place at Comox yesterday
when the new medical wing of the
St. Joseph's Hospital was officially
opened to the public, the ceremony
being performed by the Rev. Thomas
Menzies, M. L. A. in the presence of
several hundred persons from sll
parts of the valley and several from
outside points including Vancouver
and Victoria. The weather interfered with the holding of the garden
party for which arrangements had
been fully made when rain made it
Imperative that the social event
should be held indoors. This did
not dampen the ardor of the large
crowd that had assembled nor the
spirits of those ill charge of the affair, and one of the most enjoyable
afternoons spent this season by
pleasure seekers was the result. At
three o'clock the Rev. Mr. Menzies
was called upon to perform the opening ceremony. He told of the pleasure
he had had In being permitted to act,
then In a twenty minute address he
extolled the great work being carried
on by the hospitals on the coast ln
outlying places, especiallly mentioning St, Joseph's of Comox which he
had seen founded and the growth of
which he had watched from that
time. He asked his audience not to
forget the unselfish spirit that
animated the Sisters and those associated with them telling of the
hard battle against great odds that
every hospital has to wage against
deficiencies In finances and how
hard it always Is to make both ends
meet. Because the Sisters of St. Joseph are carrying on and have carried on the uphill light for the 'sake
of the unfortunate persons who may
be stricken with illness he asked that
greater support be given the hospital at Comox. The new wing had
cost $26,500 and the Provincial Government had assisted to some extent
by appropriating four thousand dollars and If the people of the district
showed interest in the work that Is
being carried on he intimated, though
he did not definitely state, thnt more
aid would be forthcoming. In closing Mr. Menzies declared the new
medical wing open to the public. He
was loudly applauded. Mr. James
Carthew then called upon Mr. Simms
Mayor of Courtenay to address those
present . He also acclaimed the
great work the hospital had done
since its Inception and was glad to
note the steady growth. Mr. Carthew
then made an impassioned plea fnr
assistance to the hospital and great
er thoughtfulness for those who work
there asking those who go to the picnic resorts, passing the gates of the
hospital to do so, to call In once In a
while and take the Sisters along with
them. He said he had done so many
times and jocularly told of how some
one had said "they've got him now."
He wished that they would get a
whole lot more. His remarks
brought forth applause.
The Rev. Father Beaton then addressed the gathering. Dr. Millard's
address was the last one but he did
not forget to tell of the beginning ot
the hospital, giving credit for that
to General A. D. Macrae for the initial support given the institution. After the addresses those In attendance were given the freedom of the
hospital and they took full advantage ot the occasion to inspect the
building. Everybody was laud In
praise of the modernity of the equipment and the convenient arrangement
of the building. Many visited the pa
tlents to cheer them with a kind word
and the Courtenay May Queen was
there to wish the hospital success.
Miss Marjorie Fletcher's mother has
only recently been a patient at Comox. On July fifth next ten yenrs
will have elapsed since the founding
of SI. Joseph's hospital and It has
grown with the development of the
district until now, care can be taken
of forty patients as against tour when
the hospital was founded In 1913 by
Sister Majella and her associates.
She is now stationed at Barrle, Ontario. During the afternoon a heifer
was auctioned .the purchaser being
Capt. Llddle, who paid fifty five dol
lars (or the animal. It had been donated by Mr. and Mrs. W. R. Flet
cher of Victoria who were nt one
time residents of Comox. Two Collie pups and their mother given by
Mr. and Mrs. Georg Kirby, of the

with Mr. William G. Stubbs a close
runner-up. The ten set raffled was
won hy Mrs. Capes: the oil painting

A second centrepiece wes won by
Mrs. Matthews of Victoria. During
the afternoon an orchestra under the
leadership of Mr. Leslie Moody, and
comprising Messrs. William Booth,

The burned farms might be the wages paid by YOUR

TRIM THE RANCHERS
FOR FOURTH TIME
Cumberland   7—Courtenay    1.
Cumberland baseball players
trounced the Cowboys from Courtenay for the fourth time this year on
the local diamond last Sunday, coming from behind in the sixth inning
with six runs after Courtenay had
the game tucked away by an advantage ot two runs. It was a classy game to watch with only one bad
Inning to mar the proceedings. Jim
my Dangerfleld did the flinging for
the locals and Dave Hunden hurled
for Courtenay, the Cowboys regular
pitcher being still on the crippled list
with Smith's arm still on the blink.
Davy allowed only four hits and
should have had a shut out. Halley
Dixon was back o nthe visitors' lineup and made a couple of great catches in left Held losing one when he
tripped on a rough spot. Andy Robinson pulled down a hard one in
centre and there was nothing doing
ln the right garden. Johnny Robinson
grabbed a hot one single handed in
the eight that was labelled for a safety. It was a gilt edged piece of
work. For the locals King at short,
Plump at first and Bannerman at
third in place of Johnny Marocchi
put up a great exhibition. There was
a big crowd present and everyone
thoroughly enjoyed a great game.
Next Sunday at one o'clock Powell
River plays on the local diamond in
a league fixture, after which Cumber-
laud visits Courtenay in a league
match. Courtenay will have Smith
pitching as his arm has rounded Into shape so a rousing game is expected at the Cowboys' home
grounds. If Cumberland wins both
games they will be ahead in the
league race. On the other hand if
Powell River beats them and they
win at Courtenay the race will be
even with a win for each team. The
boys from the paper town are reported to havo strengthened tlieir
pitching staff and will mako the locals travel the whole distance to win.

Last Saturday morning a pioneer of
Comox Valley was laid to her last
rest when the funeral of the late
Mrs. Patrick Whelcn took place from
thc home of Mr. and Mrs. P. Leo Anderton on the Cumberland Rond. The
funeral was largely attended, the
littlo Roman Catholic Church at Comox being taxed to the limit to accommodate those who had come to
pny their last respects to ono who hnd
lived and labored among them for
such a long time. The service was
conducted by the Rev. Father Benton,
who. In a short address held up the
life of tbe late Mrs. Whelan as one
to be taken for an example, her kindly nature, her thought fulness tor
others snd her Christian spirit being
worthy of emulation. There was a
large number of floral tributes,
among them being a beautiful wreath
from the Lasso Women's Institute of
which the Inte Mrs. Whelan had been
an ardent member. The pallbearers
were Messrs. George Leighton, William Hannah, John McKensIe, Thomas Hudson. Philip Ryan and B.

meeting of the council for the re-1
ceptlon of resolutions for presenta- j
tion to the convention or the Associated Boards ot Trade ot Vancouver
Island which met In Nanaimo this
year. Considerable discussion regarding the construction of a
temporary bridge over the Courtenay River while the new bridge Is
In course of building took place and
It was decided to concentrate on trying to keep the detour In proper
shape rather thnn press for the temporary bridge which the city,
owing to finances did not feel it
should build.
A letter was read from Mr. A. W.
Nell, asking whether the dredging of
the river had been satisfactorily
completed. Mr. Lloyd reported that
there were still some boulders that
should be removed and a couple of
snags but that otherwise the work
had been entirely satisfactory. The
matter was left in his hands to report to the next meeting as to recommendations that should be made
for the improvement of navigation
on the river. A committee composed
of Messrs. Anderton, Maclntyre,
Hughes, Hurford and Douglas was
appointed to begin preparations for
the Board's annual picnic and the
meeting adjourned.

time and at the aame time save skin irritation.
We ask you to discover thc same things by a
test at our expense.
Thc 5 advantages of PALMOLIVE SHAVING CREAM are the result of 130 laboratory
experiments—covering 1? months'time. Study
them:
It multiplies itscif 250 times in rich lather;
Softens any beard in one minute, without rubbing in.
Lather lasts—10 minutes if necessary.
Strong-walled bubbles hold hairs erect for
easier cutting.

think it is one ot the finest stories
ever told.
They had grown old together, she
and he—man and wife. They had
battled together tor years in a little
business all their own. For years she
and he had kept a little store in the
middle of the block—a little store.

to return to the store.

"Pretty good—pretty good today. But
somehow,  that  store   will  never  be

Under present conditions government enters into all branches of life.
If goverment is had, business and the
home suffer. The ever-Increasing
complications of social and industrial conditions have increased the de

11 behooves all of us to co-operate ef- j you're not strong and well like you
fectually in the business of government. Therefore, we can no longer
shun politics.
As a matter of duty, it is clear that
the youth of our land must give Its
best thought and energy to thc problems of government.
Let these graduates give heed to
the functions of goverment, through
the ballot or otherwise, for in a few-
years they will be in charge of the
Ship of State.
This field Is one of great interest
and fascination nnd offers much to
both young men and women.
By taking an interest in politics we
do not mean the petty politics of the
boss, or the seeking of an office for
the mere salary.   We mean an active
participation In the privileges of
good citizenship. Inform yourself re-
gardlng the functioning of political |
parties, because it is generally true j
that when you begin to understand
then you begin to influence the course
of events.
The world is calling for leaders and
the leaders of tomorrow must come
from the ranks of the graduates of

There was a faint flush of a younger color in the old woman's face—
for wives live for the finer sentiment
in life, and years only quicken their
interest.
One day she started to visit the
little store. But it was a long, hard
walk for a woman of her age.
On the sidewalk, not far from
where the old storo stood, she saw
hlm standing with a tray fastened to
his shoulders, and on tho tray was a
collection of collar buttons, shoestrings nnd papers of pins.

the doctors' bills, the hospital bills

THE SWEET
GIRL GRADUATE
She is on the platform reading her
essay. She looks as If she had just
stepped out of a flower bed. In her
checks the carnation has left its
glow and her lipB have robbed the
roses.
Her essay is somthing that tells of
hope and ambition and rosy skies,
for hard knocks are few in the chrysalis period. Why shouldn't this girl
graduate for a time believe in the entire goodness of the world; believe in
perpetual sunshine? The band plays
jazz for her now; her pulses quicken
and she is happy. It is well. Why
should she know that further down
the path there are no flowers, thc
hands no longer play and the clouds
often shut out the sun?
Let her have her good times, this
sweet girl gruduatc. Let her glory in
her triumphs and be proud of her attainments. There can never be too
much happiness; there is always too
much sorrow.
Down in the front row arc father
and mother, a man and a woman who
hade tolled and suffered and borne
much. It ls the common lot. It puts
deep lines ot care Into their faces and
sometimes it wrinkles heartB, but not
always,
If you look closely, you will sec
that couple have just one object In
life—the girl. She Is of Iheir flesh
and blood, she Is slipping away from
Ihem and often the mother cries sl-
leillly because of a sorrow that is loo
deep for words. She Is proud of her
Hweet girl graduate, but her arms are
empty and there Is an ache in her
heart for the baby, blossomed Into a
woman. Men love deeply and truly,
but there Is a holy affection denied
them, Mothers know it—mothers only.
The essay? To lliose parents It represents thc cllmnx of wisdom, the
culmination ot learning. The words
flow like music, and there Is a hymn
in every paragraph. The affections
of fond parents see through rose-
colored glasses, you know.
And then, when It Is all over, thc
louplc wait patiently for a queen.
Hut the queen Is busy in another
court. Her classmates carry her
uway and father and mother go home
alone to lie awake and await the
coming of the little girl who hns
linished school.
There you have thc story of a great
many graduation days. They ace a
line institution and they contain
liiuch of education not found In books.
Old age, like sorrow and solitude,
has its revelations. As we grow older, life grows darker, till only one
pure light Is left shining for us, and
that light Is—Faith.
Jane and William still had this
faith in the Immortal future. That
was all that was loft to them, but oh,
what a priceless possession it was!

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
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 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.

Regulations
In order to provide greater safei/ tor
pedestrians and motorists in British Columbia, Attorney-General A. M. Manson
has approved a regulation under the Motor Vehicles Act, which standardizes signals to be given by motorists in driving
automobiles. The accompanying Illustrations show graphically what the motorist
is called upon to do.
When intending to turn to the left the
driver's left hand and arm  must be extended horizontally from and beyond the
left side of the vehicle.   The intention to
turn to the right shall be indicated by extending the left hand from the left Bide of
Uie vehicle, with the hand and arm pointing upward.    When the driver Intends to
stop his machine or slow down quickly he
must extend the band and arm pointing In
| a downward direction.
|    It is also provided that when signals are
> given by a mechanical device, the device
j shall have been approved b ythe lieutenant-
! governor-in-councll.
J    The regulation also requries a motorist
! before turning, stopping or changing his
j course, and before turning such    vehicle
! when  starting   the   same,   to   ascertain
j whether there Is sufficient Bpace for such
movement,  without  endangering  pedestrians or unreasonably affecting other   vehicles.
The regulation, which goes into effect
immediately, was prepared after consultation with provincial automobile clubs and
after Information had been obtained from
associations all over the continent. The
system of signalling is practically uniform all over America.

The policy of the department of

"We will not attempt to bring a

once," he said, "but will be careful
to Inform the prospective citizen of
conditions here. That number of new
settlers every year would mean a substantial increase In population and
the production of the province."
Hon. Mr. Pattullo does not believe
that the population ot British Columbia is decreasing; rather, tt is Increasing. The recent reports of
people leaving the province need not
cause any worry, he claims, because
those departing are mostly city dwellers. Thc province needs farmers.

"0 wad some power the gittie gle us
To see oorsel's as lthers see us!"
So far as golf Is concerned this hitherto Insuperable difficulty has been
overcome by the camera. It is possible now to have a moving picture
taken of one's swing so that any section of It may be seen and studied.
Thc whole film can be thrown on the
screen and, If need be, slowed up so
that the movements can bo seen iu detail; or prints can be made and the
swing studied at one's leisure. In this
way each movement may be checked
up In relation to the other movements that go to make up the
composite swing, and defects discerned which are impossible to the
unassisted eye. Tho cost of moving
pictures ls not prohibitive. I know
of one player who apparently had excellent form, but who could not drive
two hundred yards. This lack of
length he overcame by having his
swing filmed, which showed that at
the moment of impact the weight was
not on the left foot ns It should be In
thc case of long drivers. This wos
difficult to detect by the naked eye,
but the cinema showed lt up clearly.
A score of prints of the swing at the
vital sections can be made, and these
can be compared with pictures of recognized stars of the game, so that
the beginner can tell exactly at which
point, If any, the swing goes wrong.
The camera does not lie, no matter
what artists may do. It simply records what It sees. It has no pet
theory to support. Golf books, as a
whole, have had to he largely rewritten because of data suppled by tho
camera.
Some interesting points have been
brought out by the pictures. Heretofore the hands were supposed to start
the back Bwlng. The body was supposed to be Inactive until the club
got considerable distance In the back
swing. If the hands started the back
swing, the head of the club would Im
mediately get ahead of the hand. But
the converse Is true; the head of the
club, so to speak, remains on the tee
and for a few inches is dragged by the
arms. The swing is started by the
body pivoting and the hands do not
become active until somewhere about
the middle of the back swing.
The pictures show a fuller body
movement or pivot somewhere before
tho club has reached Its furthest point
In the back swing. The explanation
of this is that after the body has completed Its twist the momentum of the
club carries tho hands farther back.
The body actually start3 reversing ln
the down swing before the club has
reached Its fartherst point ln the
back swing. This Is the reason why
the back swing and forward swing
blend so that no break appears. According to the old teaching tho hands
were supposed to start the down
swing; this Is contrary to the evidence of thc pictures. The hands
havo nothing to do with thc start of
the down swing. The body reversing
pulls the hips and shoulders around,
and consequently thc arms. The
wrists and hands remain lu the same
bent position they occupied at the top
of the swing until a few feet from tho
back swing, when they start reversing.
* *With all the long hitters In the
down swing there appears to be a
distinct sway towards the hole. The
left hip seems to shoot in the direction of the flag, and It the left goes
the right, of course, must follow. The
body Is not ln thc same position at
impact as lt occupied In the address,
nor is thc down swing the same as the
up swing. Tlie sway o fthe body is
provided for by the fact that most of
the long hitters address the ball
slightly off the left heel.
The pictures show the waggles ot
most of the stars to be almost Identical. The club is raised straight up
from behind the ball and ls pointed
slightly in the general direction of
the hole. It ls then brought back
several feet past the ball and is then
placed behind the ball when the swing
proper is commenced. The movements are, of course, made by the ex-
tenlion of the right wrist and the roll
of the left forearm with the reverse
movements. During these movements
the head is not kept Ilxed on the ball.
During the forward movement the
head looks at the hole and then ls allowed to rest on the ball. If the head
Is kept Axed on the ball throughout
the waggle apparently aim ls destroyed. This can be proven from
practice.
On the down swing both knees
seem to bend forward, which causes
the body to dip. They straighten up,
however, before the ball is struck.
Thc body Is certainly In a more swing
tban half-way in the down swing.
There are other interesting points
which the pictures show. For , the
player who Ib badly off his game and
can get no cure from his professional,
I would strongly recommend that his
swing be filmed. By comparing It
with other pictures faults may be detected and a cure for them suggested.
The difficulty most golfers meet is
not being able to see their own swings
If this were possible may players
could easily correct their own faults.
A good example of the aid of pictures
ls the reported case of Miss Sterling,
who detected n glaring fault while
watching a picture of her swing,
which drew from her the remark
that she would "soon correct that"
and which, doubtless, she was able to
do.
It should be remembered that the
eyes, although the most important
factodn lu acquiring knowledge, are
by no means Infallible. The whole
basis of legerdemain Is founded on
their limitations. But the camera,
with its fast shutter speed, is extremely accurate, and, as someone
says, never lies.

THE INCREASING VALUE OP YOUR
TELEPHONE
YOUR TELEPHONE is of greater value
as each month goes by. With a steady
increase in the number of new telephones
you are constantly able to talk with a
larger number of people. This applies
to different parts of the province.
It means to the business man that he is in close
touch with more people. As every telephone is a long
distance telephone, anyone on the Lower Mainland or
Vancouver Island may be reached at a moment's notice.  The conversation is direct the reply instant.
Don't overlook the cheaper night rates. Between
7 p.m. and 8 a.m., you get three times the day period
at the same price.

GREAT THRILLS IN
"HEARTS AFLAME"
Remarkable Forest Fire One of
Big Scenes Din Barker's Production.
Reginald Barker, director of big
screen photodramas, haB given photoplay fans something new to enthuse
over in his latest production,
"Hearts Aflame," a Metro picture
which will be seen (or the Ilrst time
Friday and Saturday at the Ilo-Ilo
Theatre. His staging of the magnificent (orest fire scene was realistic to
the extreme, and it supplied a thrill
to the large audience which saw anil
applauded lt yesterday.
Nothing aB vivid and Intense na
this (orest fire has yet been presented in photoplay photographed; one
can actually Bee the (lames lick at
the trees which rapidly give way before the conflagration. Wolves and
bears, (rightened (rom thler hiding
places, leap madly before the camera
In an attempt to escape the devastating (lames. And through the blazing
forest, an old locomotive driven by a
young girl, slowly makes Its way In
an attempt to reach a powder magazine.
Director Barker has not been satisfied to provide just this one big thrill
ln the picture. There are several
others which, In other photoplays,
would by themselves merit unusual
attention. In this case they simply
add to the tense excitement which
prevails tn the picture. One ot these
"minor" thrillers Is the blowing up
of a dam, releasing thousands of logs
which go floating down a river. Another is the dynamiting of a country
hillside, preventing the spread of the
Are.
The story Is that of Harold Titus'
novel, "Timber," an engrossing tale
of the Michigan woods. There Is a
love romance which ls, like the rest
of the picture, real; and the participants are a strong-willed young miss
ot the Michigan woods and a millionaire's son who attempts to redeem
himselt in the sight o( his father and
his trlends. Also In the story is a plea
for the conservation of forests, a
doctrine eloquently expressed by the
late Colonel Roosevelt, who is seen
for a moment In an early scene in thc
photoplay.
The cast is large and excellent.
Frank Keenan Is seen in the role of
an old millionaire ,an ex-lumberman;
Anna Q Nilsson 1 sthe girl of the Michigan woods; and Craig Ward makes
a strong Impression as the young hero. All the parts, even to the least
Important "bit" are well played. Richard Headrlck, Russell Simpson, Richard Tucker, Stanton Heck, Martha
Mattox, Walt Whitman, Joan Standing, Ralph Clonlnger and Irene Hunt
have other Important roles.
"Hearts Aflame" was produced (or
