Addresses The
Board Of Trade
Again the scenery of beautiful Comox Lake came Into Its own, when
Major Longstaff, F. R. G. S„ who has
visited many of the beauty spots of
different countries, made a trip up to
Quartz .Mountain where he took 12
photographs of the Glacial Area of
Central Vancouver Island.
Major Longstaff who speaks very
highly of the pictures which are to be
taken in this particular spot expects
to be able to bring an expedition in
next summer, claiming, that this favorite spot will be a strong competitor
of Jasper Park, from a tourist point
of view.
Major Longstaff who has travelled
all through the Alps was accompanied
on his last tour by II. Bunks, who
showed him. the vantage points of
Quartz Mountain.
Mr. and Mrs. C. Dando left for Nanaimo on Saturday.
Courtenay, Sept. 19:— Last night
the City Hall was a scene of a mosl
Interesting meeting when the Courtenay-Comox Board of Trade met in
regular session with forty members
present. Mr. A. W. Neill, M. P., wns
present and addressed the meeting on
matters of vital interest to the district
particularly pertaining to the improvements of the Courtenay river for the
navigation of freight boats. Mr. Neill
gave the meeting satisfactory assur-
unces that certain improvements
would be undertaken as soon as possible. Later In the evening he spoke
to the meeting on what had been accomplished at the last sessslon at
Parliament at Ottawa, dwelling at
some length upon the Oleomargarine
question which vitally affects dairymen of Western Canada. "He also
Bpoke of the activity—or non-activities— of tlie Senate body of law-mali-
ers, which he characterized as more
or less Impotent, except when It came
to matter of political expediency.
He spoke in his usual serio comic
vein and created much merriment by
his criticisms of the Red Chamber.
Mr. J. P.' Forde. Engineer of the Public Works Department accompanied
Mr. Neill, and answered some quest-
Ions regarding his method of stopping motor speeding on the Comox
Wharf. He told the meeting that if
tlie Board of Trade would co-operate
with him ln having this menace to life
and the Government property stopped
he would remove the obstacles which
he had placed on the wiiarf to effect
a slowing down of motor traffic which
has been damaging the wharf considerably In the past few months. The
members of the Board were quite sat- i
sNed with the replies given by the two I
visitors, and are confident that the
improvements asked for will be under-'
take/ without delay.
The meeting of the Upper Island
Football Association which was held
ill Nanaimo on September 15th. had
many matters of importance to discuss.
One of the most important questlosis
being iu regard to Sunday games, tlie
Association having received word to
cancel all Sunday games until further
notice. Permission has now been received from the D. F. A. granting permission to mining districts for Sunday games.
Another question was the date for
second division teams to enter, there
still being only two teams. The Association were forced to let the second
division league fall through, it being
impossible to go ahead with only two
teams, this being a disappointment to
those already entered.

Cumberland Lost
Hard Game On
Saturday Last
Before a large gathering of soccer
tans last Saturday, the Nanaimo football team defeated the Cumberland
eleven by 1—0. ^_
The lone tally came from the boot
ot McMillan after one hour and fifteen
minutes play, when Blair, who bad
come out of goal to stop a rush, was
held by two opponents, while the
whistle failed to be blown, thus causing hm to make only a half kick at the
ball, which went to McMillan, who
placed it well over Balir's head and
into the net.
The first halt was of a very even nature, and while the wind caused both
teams to lose opportunities, both goals
were visited In turn.
The second halt saw a complete
change and Cumberland had the better of the exchanges, penning Nanaimo
In their own half most of the time,
but the forwards failed lo penetrate
the defence of Bell, Linn Routledge
& Co. Nanaimo's score came when
they made a break away.
Although the boys lost the game on
Saturday they gained a lot of supporters in their game fight when the
breaks were all against tbem.
Many Nanaimo fans wondered why
Minto, Dickinson and Husband could
not get going, also Dickie did not look
the same as when he played his last
couple of games.
introduced Mr. A. W. Neill, M.P., who
made a very pleasing address to tbe
large number of people gathered bn
the green outside the hall. On the
conclusion of Mr. NelU's speech Mr.
Crockett called on Mr. Thomas Menzies, M.P.P., who also delivered a short
address to his Comox constituents.
After the opening ceremony the
people promenaded round the grounds
viewing the splendid exhibits of live
stock, and through the hall viewing
the exquisite display of fruit, root
crops, dairy products, home cooking,
hone and ladles' fancy work.
Much Interest was centered In thc
exhibits of produce and fruit that
had been experimented with this seas-1
on, particularly was this so with a 12
pound water melon exhibited by Mr.
Moncrleff. Mr. George W. Edwards,
who had twenty-five entries, had on
display u plate of peanuts which he
had grown. He won twenty-one prizes
with his twenty-five entries. Mrs.
Hugh Morrison showed some sweet
potatoes, and there was a wonderful
display of marrows and squash, one
of which, au Abyssinian squash weighed sixty pounds, having been grown
by Master Harold Herd. This Is the
second year that this class ot squash
smoke chamber and the engine wus
kept running continuously for ninety
minutes, completely filling the smoke
chamber with noxious gases.
The object of the test was to discover whether a person equipped with
the apparatus could travel safely
through a zone containing a deadly
percentage of Carbon Monoxide gas,
one of tho products of a mine explosion.
Samples of the atmosphere were
taken both with the Carbon Monoxide
detector and vacuum sample bottles.
the latter will be sent to Ottawa for
analysis. The detector samples showed percentages of Carbon Monoxide
varying at different times from eight-
tenths of one^er cent, to two por cent.
Either one of these percentages arc
fatal as proved by thc fact that a
white rat used in the test completely
collapsed after being in the atmosphere a minute and a half only. The
rat was revived by the administration
of pure oxygen and again placed Iff
the deadly atmosphere collapsing tlie
second time in one minute.
Among those who donned the apparatus and spent several minutes in tho
chamber was Messrs. Charles Graham,

Moore, whose table certainly was an
exquisite conception. There was some
splendid ladies' work displayed in the
fancy work section. An industrial
display In the hall by the Comox
Creamery Association certainly created much interest. It waB a splendid
display of butter and cream, milk,
eggs and jam. They also had a butter churn 111 operation.
Outside on the grounds there were
several industrial displays, including
a demonstration of log-sawing with
power drag-saws, farming machinery
in operation and motor car exhibits.
The chief features of the sports was

IMPPING THE  RETAILER
One of the easiest things In the
world to do is criticize. It is the
most popular form of amusement
with some people, and we're forced
to admit we've several in Cumber'
land addicted to the. habit. At pres
ent they're directing their criticism
at thc retail merchant.
Maybe thc merchant doesn't deserve all the mean things said about
him. Probably, in his case, as in
most other cases of violent criticism,
a bctlcr understanding of his position would soften the judgement of
tho party doing the criticising. At
nny rate, the merchants we know
personally are average good fellows,
and Ihey declare that they are being
made the particular goats of this
fault-finding.
But, even at that, we suggest that
they be more frank with tho public.
If their profits are not too great, as
Ihey say, they might try quoting a
few more prices in their advertising,
and tlie public could see, and compare them with those quoted by merchants in other towns. Nothing could
silence the critic more quickly than
lo read each week a list of prices of
commodities offered for sale by his
home merchant. He has a fair idea of
what they cost, so he could do his own
figuring. He would then have no
come-back. It simply would mean
that the critic would have the ground
eut from beneath him, and he would
have no foundation left upon whicli to
base an argument.
it. On the other hand, a newspaper
may say all klnd3 of good things about
this same person, and throw bouquets
promiscuously at the others, yet not
once in a hundred times will the compliment be noticed or the editor thanked.
This goes to show that people take
too much as a matter of course. A
newspaper is expected to speak well
of everybody, boom the town, and do
a lot of hard work for "the good of the
cause," for It costs nothing to run a
newspaper— so too many seem to
think.
It is fortunate that most publishers
are public-spirited citizens. They do
much without hope of reward on earth,
content If they see good accomplished
through their efforts.

boys that have been such a joy to you

HERE'S TO HER
THE CRITICAL PUBLIC
The man who gets angry about what
a newspaper prints about him should
return thanks a dozen times eacli day
for what the newspaper knows of hltn
and suppresses. Any fool can find
things to print ln a newspaper, but it
lakes a wise editor to know the things
that should be kept out.
lt Is generally supposed thot newspapers print everything they can find
out, that is anywhere near fit to pri it,
but thot is a mistaken Idea. The average country newspaper retrains
from publishing many things that
might pass aa news, because It would
reflect on the character and reputation of some individual, and directly on
hi.i family and tho town.
And this remind us. ond we presume
other newspapers have noticed it,
that if anything happens to get Into
the paper that does not please Borne
subscriber—and wo have known of
such cases where the offended person
lias not, and never had been a subscriber— it does not take long for the
person to let the editor know all about

descends upon that household like a
dove and the caverns of tlie lucky

She is the delight of a man's soul and

Many people Bee many changes in

error to believe that the things which

zotion that life has not such zest
now as It had then.
Of course not. The days of boyhood and girlhood, when there was
keen delight in merely living, have
gone. But the boys and girls ot today are having them just as bounteously as their fathers and mothers
did, even though the surroundings
are different. There never was a generation that did not think the one
succeeding it was going to the dogs.
Thc surest cure for this mild pessimism is to go back to the old home
after years of absence. The house
that in memory was a spacious abode,
full of delightful nooks and corners,
turns out to be a cramped cottage
devoid of plumbing. The street ln
front, which had seemed a glde, noble
throughtare, is found to be so narrow
that two autos cannot pass without
going Into the gutter. The town hall
shrinks from an Imposing edifice Into a shabby little structure which In
an enterprising town would be called
a dump.
The world is moving forward, and
the homes with it. The common comforts of the laborer todny were sought
as luxuries hy the rich not bo many
years ago.
Tho woman in the home does not
wear her life out in toll to the extent
she did only a short time back. But,
because she goes to the theatre, haa
her club, and occasionally gives a
little party to her friends, she Is no

Mrs. K. Wilkinson, of Slnd Road,

trouble you to send me another box of
the Ointment, It Is not for myself, but
for a friend of mine who Is us bad as
I wus, and cannot get any rest for the
noises in Uie head. 1 feel a new woman, and can go to bed now and get a
good night's rest, which I had not
hern able to do for many months. It
Is a wonderful remedy and am most
delighted to rccommende It."
Mrs. E. Crowe, of Wbltehorse Road,
Croydon, writes:—"! um pleased to
tell you that tlie small tin ef ointment
yon sent to me at Ventnor, has proved
n complete success, my hearing Is
now quite normal, nnd the horrible
head noises have ceased. The action
of this new remedy must be very remarkable, for I have been troubled
with these complaints for nearly ten
years, and have had some of the very best medical advice together with
other expensive ear Instruments all
to no purpose. I need hardly say how
vory grateful I am, for my life has
undergone an entire change."

How to make your

Palm end olive oils
—ruining else—give
nature's greets color
te Palmolive Soap
Made in Canada
Every woman passes as pretty if only
her skin is fresh, smooth and young. It
is within the'power of every woman to
possess this attraction to make her
- complexion as beautiful as she longs
for it to be.
The secret? Cleopatra knew and
practiced it in the days of ancient Egypt.
She observed a daily ceremonious
-cleansing. The cleansers she used were
the same you may have today, Palm
and Olive oils.
These beautifying oils are scientifically blended in famous Palmolive Soap.
They give it mildness, wonderful soothing qualities, profuse, creamy and refreshing lather. *•
Cleansing with Palmolive is a beauty
treatment in itself. No woman should
say her skin is too sensitive to use soap
until she has tried Palmolive.
The attractive green cake, the natural
color of the oils, is within the reach of
every one who appreciates that cleanliness is the greatest beautifier.
You can buy Palmolive Soap at all
first class dealers.

Electrical Installations
There is no doubt about it.   Wo ure here to prove it.
On the 19lh of May 1921 we received from the Provincial
Inspector of Electrical Energy a set of Rules and Regulations
governing the Installation of Electrical Wiring were immediately adopted and have been lived up to in every smallest detail. "    .
*We carry the largest and most complete stock of any
Company or firm of its size ln B. C. and so can take Immediate
care of your job without subjecting you to any annoying delay
waiting for special material, etc.
We gladly invite inspection b ythe highest Electrical
Authorities of any installation we have made since the Provincial Regulations were inaugurated and our most convincing
argument as to why we should do your wiring is the fact that
of the jobs we have had Inspected ALL have been pronounced
perfect. And then we have the knowledge of Electricity acquired through many years of experience an dtlils should
surely count for something with you when you are selecting an
Electrical Contractor.
A man may know how to drive a nail precisely, but he ls
a dangerous man unless he knows the effect of the driving
upon the material Into which the nail enters and so it is in the
Electrical Contracting business, it ls not only necessary to
understand the practical installation of wires, switches, fittings, etc., but it is doubly necessary to be able to make the
calculations that will ensure maximum safely, economy of
operation, and the proper functioning of the Electrical Energy
for which the wires, switches, etc., are meryly paths.

A writer on a big city paper recently said: "The real life for a boy
Ib not in a city."
We'll say lt Is not .
He should know of animals, rivers .plants and that great out-of-door
life that lays for him the foundation
of his later years.
What memories come to us who
were so fortunate as to be brought
up ln the country! Many big and successful men have never ceased to
thank God that they were privileged
to spend thei; boyhood life among
the hills, streams and fields. The
pictures thit the country boy studied
ire far more real to him In liter
years than the canvases of the great
masters, which he has since enjoyed
In the various museums.
The scent of new-mown hay is all
very well in poetry, ind It la i delight to the city vacationist, but tell
us, reader—you who were brought
up on i farm and who followed the
rake wltb your bare feet, Jumping
every now and then is the new-cut
stalks pierced your ; soles—whit
wouldn't you exchange for those halcyon days?

A SWEET-MINDED WOMAN
So great Ib the Influence of a sweet-
minded woman on those around her
that it is almost boundless. It Is to
her that friends come ln seasons of
sorrow and sickness, for comfort and
health. One soothing touch of her
kindly hands works wonders in the
feverish child; a few words let fall
from her lips in the ear ot a sorrow-
stricken sister, will do much to lift
the load of grief that is bowing Its
victim down to the ground in anguish. The husband comes home worn
out with the pressure ot business.
and feeling irritable with the world
ln general, but when he enters the
cool sitting room and meets . his
wife's smiling face ho succumbs in a
moment to the soothing influences
which act as a Balm in Gilead to his
wounded spirits, that are wearied
with the stern realities of life. The
rough school boy flies into a rage at
the taunts of his companions, to find
solace In his mother's smile. The little
one, full of grief with her large
trouble, finds a haven of rest on mother's breast; and one might go on
with instance after Instance of the influence that a sweet-minded woman
has in the social circle with which
she Is connected. Beauty ls an insignificant power when compared with
hers.

There was a decided Improvement
in industry throughout British Columbia last year, according to the
fourth annual report of the department of Industries, just published by
the government. There was also a
marked renewal of Interest tn the
vast wealth of raw materials of the
province.
Included in the report is an elaborate directory of products manufactured in British Columbia, a work
which required a great deal of research and time on the part ot the
department. There are 482 different
articles manufactured, with 2718 establishments operating in the province. During the year the department of industries distributed 15,000
copies of thc directory.
The report points out that the

not better than, the article imported
or brought here from Eastern Canada, a point often unappreciated by
local consumers, who would save
money and encourage home industry
by selecting B. C. products where
possible.
The minister of industries    points
out that British Columbia exports
too many products in the raw stale;
copper,  zinc, lumber,    lead,    silver,
fish, and particularly agricultural
products. At the same time canned
soups, vegetables and fruits are imported in large quantities.
14 MILLIONS LOST IN
YEAR'S FOREST FIRES
Canada's bill for damages sustained by reason of foreBt fires during the past five years averages
$14,600,000 annually. The number
ot foreBt fires averaged 5779 a year
and the causes of this shocking display of vandalism were nine times In
ten human recklessness. Campers
accounted for 24 per cent ot all
these fires; settlers burning slash
started 22 per cent; lightning 10 per
cent; and railways 20 per cent. The
figured charged to railways is, however, an unfair index of responsibility. In the flrst place, practically all
fires started, or said to be started,
from raiway lines are instantly re.
ported. This is not true of campers
and settlers and lightning fires.
Again, the majority of railway fires,
being quickly detected, are quickly
put out so that as timber destroyers
the railway lines have fallen to a
minor position.
The problem of land clearing fires
started by settlers and running into
the green timber Is one ot the most
aggravated and complex. Settlers in
newly developed districts must use
fire to clean up the debris and naturally wish to chose hot aud dangerous
weather when burning conditions are
best. This inevitably means that for
the clearing ot farms Canada has paid
a tremendous forfeit in destroyed
timber. Much has been done, however, to make the process of land
clearing safe by Issuing permits for
burning and supervising the operation through officers of the Forest
Services. ■
The Canadian Forestry Association has repeatedly pointed out that
the wood-using industry ot Canada
accounts for a national income of
500 million dollars a year and cannot continue indefinitely unless every safeguard is thrown about the limited posesslons of the Dominion.

Everybody IntenwUd In tbe Administration of tbe affairs of tbe
Province Is earnestly invited to attend
Rond-bullding In British Columbia la a monumental task and while
the majority ot citizens' of this province boaat ot tbe splendid system of
highways built up by the government, there is also a great deal of
criticism at times. Considering the
vastness of the province and the
limited means at the disposal of
Hon. W. H. Sutherland, minister of
public works, the wonder Is that tho
highways are so numerous and well
kept, lt remains for the visitor lo
decide and the press of Alberta Is
loud in Its praise of British Colum.
bia's roads.
Newspapers of the sister province
credit British Columbia wilh having
made. $35,000,000 from the tourist
businoss last year. One has this to
say:
"Alberta ia far behind British Columbia in road policies and the Pacific Province is keenly alive to the
value of its highway system and the
resulting profits from tourist travel."
Hon. Dr. Sutherland is returning
this week from a tour of the Peace
liiver country. During the year he
has visited every section of this immense province and makes the claim
that practically every settler haa
been provided with transportation
facilities. However, the minister
points out that transportation comes
first in the development of the province and next year the government
will carry still further Its policy of
bulldnlg settlers' roads. Comparatively little will be spent on hard-
surfacing, which will leave most of
the road appropriation for the improvement of secondary roads and
the construction and betterment of
highways in the newer districts. At
the coming Fall sesion of the Legsl-
lature the road policy will be enunciated.
A FARMER'S
ACCOUNT BOOK
(Experimental  Farm  Notes)
After studying the question of
colonizing lands along the Pacific
Great Eastern Railway all summer.
Hon. J. D. MacLean. minister of
railways, haa announced a definite
policy. Detailed information regarding each quarter Hectlon of good
land has been secured and made
available for intending settlers.   Ad
vertising will be carried on in the
local papers and throughout Canada,
largely through the Western Canada
Colonization association. Settlers
will be met by government officials
and shown thc lands available, Special rates will be given on the government railway and evory effort made to
get genuine settlers upon these lands.
British Columbia has passed
through the season so far with little
loss from forest fires, but with the
hunting season uow in full swing,
Hon. T. D. Pnttullo. minister of
lands, has issued a final appeal for
care during this and next month, so
that the splendid record may not be
shattered.
Even discountnig thc natural optimism of British Columbians over
their future, the statement Is made
by high officials of the government
deartment of industries, that this
province is directly in line for marked Industrial development and there
exist at the present time unusual np-
ortunities which should be grasped
by local capital. Grain milling and
the manufacture of electrical equipment arc said to offer exceptional
opportunities. The immense natural
resources of British    Columbia    are
Any merchant handling several
different lines of goods would regard
it as folly to neglect to keep a complete set of books enabling him at
ull times to ascertain his profits and
losses on the various commodities he
sells, his assets and liabilities, and
so on. A manufacturer who failed
to do so would be heading for in-
insolvenc.v. lt Is curious then, that
Canada's basic industry — agriculture—should be carried on, so far as
Individual producers are concerned
with it, in so casual a manner with regard to account-keeping. Especially
is this strange when It is considered
how simple farm book-keeping is by
comparison with that of other bust.
nesses.
ln a survey of some eight hundred
farms conducted some time ago It
was discovered that very few farmers indeed followed anything like a
complete method of accounting, while
a large number adopted absolutely
none at all. These, beyond having a
sort of general Idea as to "what
paid." were often quite hazy as to
actual returns from different lines of
work.
ln order if possible, to remedy
this undesirable state of affairs the
Dominion Experimental Farms system has published au extremely
simple farmer's account hook, whicli
will adequately serve all necessaiy
purposes. In size and thickness lt is
no larger than a school exercise
book, aud Is designed to last a complete year. To "keep* it needs no
knowledge of ordinary accounting;
simply thc ability lo write and add;
and a record of all transactions
might be made in one hour a week.
A few plain directions as to making
entries, some aids to taking Inventories, a table of silo capacities and
a gestation table, arc given on the
insides of the cover, while on the
back are primed calendars for lasi,
this ami next year.
In   thc   hook   itself  arc   p..ges   for
the entry of receipts and expenditures (botli of which may be seen
at a glance on thc same page) relative to cattle, horses, sheep, swine,
poultry, crops und labor; and there
is also ample space for miscellaneous
items. There is a page for amounts
owed to and by the farm, and forms
on which may be made inventories
of land and buildings, ot live stock,
of feed and supplies, and of machinery. Following is a page on which
may be (Hied out a summary of the
year's" business, together with the
few directions necesary (o filling it
out intelligently at the end of the
year. Further, for the farmer's information there is a table ln which
to enter acreage and yield of crops,
and one In which to keep a live stock
service   record.
The whole thing has been reduced
to the simplest possible terms, and
should prove, to the general farmer,
one of the most useful publications
Issued from the Experimental Farms
for some time. It should be recognized that farming is a business, the
same as any other. If a business is
not paying, the owner of it wants to
know just why it is not doing so. This
little book will enable thc farmer to
keep an accurate record of each department of his business, find out
how much he Is making from each,
or how little, and bo be able to adjust matters accordingly.

There was an increase of sixty-
three per cent in the number of immigrants to Canada during the last
three months as compared with the
corresponding period of last year.
Canadian Pacific agents in Britain recruited nearly five thousand
men for work in the harvest fields
of Western Canada and, through
lack of steamship accommodation
closed their doors on as many more
who, attracted by the special harvest rate, sought to enter Canada.
The branch lines program of the
Canadian Pacific Railway carried
out this year will bring into operation on the prairies a larger mileage
than any one year since 1914. Of
the 481 miles of line under construction, 281 miles will be ready for
handling grain in the Fall, and of
the balance, 115 miles will be ready
for steel by the winter freeze-up.
A building has been acquired by
the University of Toronto to be entirely devoted to the manufacture
of insulin. This will be the only
factory in Canada to manufacture
the   curative   fluid   in   commercial
?uantities and, although it is manu-
actured in the United States, Great
Britain and Denmark, the Canadian
product will be sold throughout the
world.

Dawson City recently celebrated
the twenty-seventh anniversary of
the discovery of the Klondyke. In
an exhibition of Yukon products
cabbages 16 inches in diameter and
weighing thirty pounds, potatoes as
big as a man's head, pumpkins as
big as watermelons, wheat, oats and
barley bore witness to tbe fertility
of the Yukon soil. Side by side
with these ranged gold nuggets,
gold dust and silver bara.
Dr. James Inches, Commissioner
of Police, Detroit, and a guest at tbe
Canadian Pacific Bungalow Camp at
Nipigon, holds the record for the
biggest speckled trout caught in the
Nipigon River this season, having
captured s fish weighing 7U pounds.
This catch wss sbove the average,
but a large number of six pounders
have been taken from the Nipigon
this season. Several years ago, and
from practically the same place, Dr.
J. W. Cook, of Fort William, caught
the world's record speckled trout,
which weighed fourteen and one-half
pounds, and was more than two and
a half feet long.

CORSE TS—
Gossard
Type Corsetry
>HE whole idea of Gossard
Type Corsetry is to bring
you to graceful proportions, one curve growing out of
another with no part unduly
emphazised. When this is done
you will have an appearance of
slimness that the woman with
a four-inch smaller waist and
your own hip measurements
can never have. A faithful following of this simple rule will
alone take pounds and pounds
away from a woman's apparent
silhouette and years away from
her apparent age.
?aftrttv«r*sf;
Gossards are moderately priced—some models
s
as low as $2.50. What
ever price you pay for
your Gossard it will fit
you   faultlessly,     will
launder       beautifully,
will    outwear    two or
even    three    ordinary
corsets and will    give
you a comfort such as
you never know before.

Mr. Editor,
Dear Sin-
Re the 8 o'clock closing on
Saturday in this city, from conversat-
iods which 1 have had with some of
its business men quite recently, <t
appears to me that the majority of
the merchants in Cumberland are now
realizing that the early closing at 8:00
p.m., ts detrimental to business and
has had the efffect of driving trade
from Cumberland, to the wide-awake
burg of Courentay.
One merchant of Cumberland, I am
told made it his business to take a
run down to Courtenay a short time
ago, on Saturday (after he had closed
his Btore ln Cumberland) to Bee what
was doing. In the first place after
he got there about 8:30 he had some
difficulty in finding a place to park
his car, so numerous were the. cars,
on the business and side streeets. After visiting and looklng'lnto the various
stores, and seeing how busy they
were, and recognizing a number of
customers, wbo, prior to the 8 o'clock
closing were usually to be seen in
Cumberland on Saturdays, his opinion re the Saturday closing underwent
a decided change.
One of the live (If there are any)
business men of Cumberland told me
that he had canvassed personally all
of the merchants of Cumberland, with
one exception, that one exception he
had not canvassed at the time, but
that he Intended to do so, and they
were all in favor of changing from
8 to a later hour, 10 o'clock probably.
Such being the case it should not be
a difficult mattter for the merchants
here to have the by-law amended or
rescinded. If such were done I ara
quite sure that a very large volume of
the business now going to Courtenay,
could be diverted this way.
By the way, let me add that'I was
dowu to Courtenay on Thursday last,
and while there I visited some of thc
