COURTENAY. July 30.—Of much
more Importance than the usual dance
or whist drive waB the educational
event held In the Booth Hall laat
night under the auspices of the Courtenay Commercial School, the feature
of which was the first annual typewriting contest.
There were three silver cups and
Ave medals and other awards tor the
various classes which brought out a
good number of entries. The results
were as follows:
Senior—Miss M. Highet, silver cup,
donated by Mr. Kerr, of the Remington Typewriter Company; Miss M.
Bardeaonni, silver medal; Miss V.
Symonds, bronze medal.
Intermediate—Oeorge Edwards silver cun, presented by the Courtenay

Mr. W. A. Haines kindly Judged the
papers and Dr. Millard presented the
various cups, medals and certificates
to tbe successful candidates. After
the typewriting contests, refreshments
were served, followed by a concert
given by the pupils of the school, and
later by a dance.
Mrs. F. W. Tull. the principal of the
Courtenay Commercial School and her
pupils are to be congratulated on a
very successful evening.
Evidently Cumberland sporting organizations want nothing to do with
amateur athletics, or rather with Ihe
Amateur Athletic Union of Canada.
At least this Impression was brought
forcibly upon the tew—the very few—
who attended the meeting in the Athletic Club last Saturday evening.
The gathering was called for thei
purpose of considering the proposal,
to form a local board of the B.C. i
Branch nf he A.A.U. of C, but or. I
account ul the small attendance thn |
question was dropped, probably for
good, as far as Cumberland is concerned.
The 'Counter-jumpers", Cumberland's leading aggregation of dub
baseball players, last evening lost
their second game with the 'Comners'
Courtenay's star dubs, by the score
of 5 runs to 3. Hank Bennie starred on the mound for the losers while
Reg. Laver did the twirling for the
winners. Batting honors went to
Bonnie and Wilcock who poled out a
three and two-bagger respectively.
Both shut their eyes and swung. Jock
Stevenson took the fielding honors
when he speared Robinson's fast drive
between flrst and seconds, and his
hand Is still red as a result.

LOCAL MEMBER AND DISTRICT
ENGINEER INSPECT NEW ROAD
Last Saturday Mr. P. P. Harrison,
M.L.A., and Mr. W. P. Bevan, District
Engineer, visited Rosewall Creek to
Inspect the new piece of highway constructed from Rosewall Creek in a
southerly direction for a distance of
about one mile. The construction
ot this piece of roadwqrk has been
advocated for some years past, eventually Mr. Smith the former'District
Engineer, planned the same, leaving
it to his successor in office. Mr. Bevan, to carry out the work.
Through the good offices of our
local Member sufficient funds were at
last obtained to carry out the work in
question. The new piece of road, besides eliminating the most dangerous
curve on the highway between Courtenay and Nanaimo, shortens the original road by some 900 feet, and being better located does away with tlie
trouble that was experienced every
winter by flooding.
On the new location of the road,
j the water flowing in several creeks Is
now confined to well defined channels and are properly bridged, while
a number of extra culverts, with adequate ditching, will take care of any
possible overflow caused by freshets.
Tbe new road .throughout, Is in no
place less than 26 feet ln width, has
a splendid foundation and Is well surfaced with gravel and clay binder.
Our District can heartily congratulate Itself on having a resident Engineer of the efficiency and capability
possessed by Mr. Bevan.
We are informed that our Member
has succeeded in obtaining the funds
required to contract a new piece of
road to eliminate the dangerous curves and grades, not to mention narrowness, of that part of the Campbell
River road near Oyster River Bridge,
and that the work in that connection
will commence within a few days.

OTTAWA, July 29.—Apart from tbe
transaction of departmental business
cabinet sessions here In the last two
days have not cleared the air regarding election prospects, nor Is the obscurity likely to be removed for some
time.
The one thing agreed to has been to
take no action for the present, having
regard to tbe difference of opinion on
the subject. Consultation has not

Premier King went to Montreal over
night but is due back this afternoon.
Willie the cabinet will sit again tomorrow, there Is no reason to anticipate any Immediate political developments.
Hon. Chas. Stewart, who hag been
selected aa one of the Canadian representatives to the Assembly of the
League of Nations, is pot keen on going, but If he should, lt will be taken
as evidence either that there will be
no election or else that It will be lata
In the fall. Aa Mr. Stewart Is known
to favor dissolution hia going abroad

It will be a few weeks before any
definite conclusion Is reached, this delay being due to the divided counsels
as to wha't time, this fall or next
spring, Is the more strategically opportune for the contest.

Dominion Soccer Championship
Lost By Island Team
Although Nanaimo and Cumberland
have always been bitter enemies
where football ts concerned, local
sport fans felt decidedly gloomy when
they learned that the Nanaimo team
had lost out in Its race for the Connaught Cup—almost as gloomy as
they felt last year when Cumberland
was defeated in tbe same series by
Weston United. Rivalry between the
two cities was completely forgotten
tor Wednesday evening saw almost
all - Cumberland anxiously awaiting
news of the final game and hoping
and praying that Nanaimo would
"bring home the bacon."
Lady Luck decreed otherwise, how-!
ever, turning her cold shoulder on the
West. Ulster United won the final!
game by 2 goals to nil, and those pres-1
ent at the matches were of the opinion that the best team won. But it
must not be forgotten that Nanaimo
ran into a lot of hard luck.    Wilson,
their star rigbt-wing, and McFarlane,
one of the best centre-halves in Canada, were both out of the game on account of Injuries, while Husband, the
speedy little left-wing, was forced to
return home after Mohday's game,
presumably on business. With three
of his best players gone, Manager
Watson was forced to re-arrange his
whole team. Tait, a mere youngster
with little experience in senior company, went between the sticks; Routledge going to the right wing in an
endeavor to fill Wilson's place. Stobbart took the centre-half position,
Harris went to outside-left, and
Knight took the inside-right. They
put up a bard light but were out-class
eil from the beginning.
According to reports the game was
ruined by roughness, both teams hav-
two players banished to tbe showers!
for this reason. Nanaimo is ached-'
tiled to play all exhibition game in
Vancouver on their return trip.

The Provincial Government haa decided to ask for a decision by tho
Court of Appeal as to the validity ot
the provincial tax on fuel oil, which
tax the large consumers like the rail-
Ways have been refusing to pay or

the federal government to disallow
the act was made by a member nf
j these   consumers,   but   disallowance
was refused and the matter was left

PYTHIAN SISTERS
ENJOYED PICNIC
The hearts of the older members of
Cumberland will rejoice to hear that
Mr. Fred Karno, Jr.. and his talanted
company of four have just arrived In
British Columbia and are booked to
play at the Ilo-Ilo Theatre, starting
Monday, August 3rd, for three days
only. In presenting his skit "Sons
of the Sea" (which bad a run In the
Old Country for over two years on the
Moss and Stoll circuits) Mr. Karno!
has wisely chosen a vehicle in whicli
he is seen to great advantage and,
those who remember "A .Night in a|
London Music Hall" and many other!
of the famous sketches will know i
what a fine treat and how many!
laughs are there for the asking. The |
sketch itself tells of the troubles of a
lot of "rookies" going on board a battleship for their first day's duties and
the consequent difficulties they find'
themselves In.
It Is Intended to put on all the old
plays in the Immediate future which
made the names of Charlie Chaplin,
Syd Chaplin, Jimmy Aubray, Fred Kitchen, and many other celebrities of
the theatrical and picture world famous, and negotiations are now on with
prominent business men ot Vancouver
to find a suitable place to house the
shows. Remember Monday evening,

Following is the press comment by
the Nanaimo Herald, ou the Karno
Company's play of three nights in that
city:
"A large crowd witnessed the Fred
Karno Jr., comedy company, at the
Dominion Theatre last evening, In a
brief but exceedingly amusing farce
that staged a corner of supposedly
onejif His Majestiy's ships and three
jolly tars, all different types, who
knew how to "Slam" as well as salute their superior officer. Tliey were
also adept at the Highland Fling, and
with an ordinary accordlan made real
music to the delightful accompanying
strains of the Dominion orchestra. In
the llilrty-mlnute farce a few baritone
solos were also included, and tlm
audience liked every bit of it, if applause counts. Mr. Fred Karno is a
school chum of Charlie Chaplin, of
movie tame, and his father, F. Karno.
Sr., brought the screen comedian over
from England. Mr. Karno. wli.x.e
comedy. sketch pleased so many last
evening, recently left Hollywood
where lie had a part In a Chaplin production, which has not yet reached
British Columbia."

ulso play In Courtenay at the Unlet v
Theatre In conjunction with the picture show on the following three days.

A BAD One of the worst blunders ever made
BREAK by a blundering compositor has just
been reported by a friend of ours who
is a shining light in journalism. This enthusiastic writer had been much smitten by a fair damsel he met at a swell dancing party, and in writing up the charmer's costume, in his account of
the affair, he concluded the little paragraph by
saying: "Her dainty feet were incased in shoes
that might have been taken for fairy boots."

GOOD
ADVICE   get into politics their future will be
fully settled and that life for them
ever after will be one round of pleasure and contentment.
Let no young man for a moment think that
such is the way of the politician. Political work
is thankless work; not a man in ten ever gets a
fair recompense for his time and labor spent.
Many men spend the best years of their lives in
chasing political phantoms, with the fond hope
that by and by an official plum will drop at their
feet.
The political wrecks along the political highway attest how fruitless the chase. From the
lesson of the years, let all young men learn that
office seeking is a poor calling, and the same
amount of industry and energy expended in some
business calling will yield a richer harvest both
in worldly goods and in peace of mind. But this
does not mean that one should not be interested
in politics. Every good citizen should be sufficiently alive to .the welfare of his country as to
see that good men are selected for office and that
all honorable means be employed to secure their
election.

Eastern line, but he Intimates that
before u spur line Is discussed tho
government will have to consider
many important factors, such aB the
quality of the coal, the cost of mining
and marketing It, the quantity which
could be marketed and the extent to
which existing collieries are getting
rid of their output. It is understood
that very complete assays and analyses will be made by government
experts in order to determine tlie
quality of the coal, of which there arc
enormous deposits.

GOSSIP What is the cure for gossip? Simply
culture.
There is a great deal of gossip that has no
malignity in it. Good-natured people talk about
their neighbors because—and only because—they
have nothing else to talk about.
Gossip is always a personal confession of
either malice or imbecility, and the young should
not only shun it, but should, with the most careful watchfulness guard themselves against every
temptation to indulge in it.
It is low, frivolous, and too often a dirty
business.
There are country neighborhoods in which
it rages like a pest. Churches are split in pieces
by it. Neighbors make enemies for life by it.
In many persons it degenerates into chronic disease which is practically incurable.

A pril 24, 1615, wns u great day in the lives of the
" townsfolk of the little seaport of Honfleur in
Northern France, for on thut day, Sieur Samuel de
Champlnin, whose earlier voyages and discoveries in
thc New World had stirred the imagination of the
French Court and of the merchants of the Norman
and Breton seaports, set sail in the little ship, the
St. Etienne. with a party of four Recollet brothers to
Christianize the Indians. After a stormy voyage the
little ship sailed up the St. Lawrence to that natural
citadel, now the eity of Quebec. Later Champlain
went on to Montreal, when lie found a large band of
Indians assembled to meet him, reminding him of his
promise to assist them in their wars. Realizing that
this would lead to exploration and eventually to colonization, he set off to Quebec to make arrangements,
the Indians sending out their scouts. Before he
returned from Quebec, the Indians growing impatient
set out with Father Le Caron and twelve Frenchmen into what is now the Province of Ontario. Cham-
plain, with two Frenchmen and ten Indians started
up the Ottawa to the Mattawa, nnd joined with the
ilurons in a war expedition against the fierce Iroquois,
by means of which Champlain, who was as enthusiastic an explorer as a soldier, discovered Lake Ontario.
Returning from the wars, Champlain spent Christmas, 1615, with his friend, Chief Darontal at Cahiague,
near where now stands the town of Orillia on Lake
Simcoe. The gallant gentleman returned to Montreal
in June, 1616, where he found his friends, the Recol-
lets, had given up hope of seeing him again. Cham-
plain's work as an explorer was now done, but his
voyages into Ontario opened up the path to the west
to the miasidhury nnd the trader.
It i» a far cry from the little ship, St. Kticnne,
which let sail thnt clay so long ago from France,
up the St. Lawrence to Quebec, to the giant Canadian
Pacific steamship, "llontroyal," which one hundred
and ten years later sailed from Cherbourg by thc same
route to the Canadian Gibraltar. On board the "Mont-
royal" was Vernon March, the famous English sculptor who designed and executed thc monument recently
erected at Orillia, to the memory of the gallant soldier,
missionary and explorer, Samuel ile Champlain, near
the site of Cahiague, from which little settlement,
Champlain started out with his Indian friends on the
disastrous expedition against the Iroquois and where
he returned with his discouraged allies.
The bronzes for the monument are colossal in size,
the figure of Champlain himself being twelve feet
high, of astounding action and vigor. In addition to
this main figure are two groups, one, "Christianity"
representing a Recollet father holding aloft the Crucifix to the savages (No. 1.) The other is "Commerce"
and shows the voyageur with a similar pair of Indians
(No. 3.) The total weight of the bronzes is more than
nine tons. It is mountetl on a pedestal of Benedict
stone, 30 feet square and 18 feet high, giving the
monument a total height nf 30 feet (No. 2.)
Mr. Vernon March (No. 4), the sculptor, is nn
interesting figure. He is one of a family of seven
brothers and one sister, all of whom are artists and
sculptors. At then studio and workshop, in Fnrn-
borough, Kent, which formerly was an old post house,
they do their own custing as well as designing, Mr.
Vernon March's work, particularly that for war
memorials, has won the highest recognition in nil parts
of the Empire and the memorial at Orillia In both
conception and execution is one of the finest e' r.lules
of his art. Mr. Sydney March, a younger brother,
crossed oil the "Montroyal," and will assist hi- brother
in the erection of the bronzes.
The late Lord Strathcona was one of the original
promoters of the monument and made the Initial con*
tribution to the fund, while thc Canadian PifSlfic Hail-
way also contributed to tbe erection of the monument.

By Dr. Clifton  D.  Howe, Dean, Fac-
uliy  uf Forestry  University o!
Toronto.
A lew days ago a caller in my office
made a slurring remark about forest
lire protection along the railways atwl
the attitude of the railway companies
toward it. 1 pointed oul to him that
(here vvua a time when the railways
ivere tiie chief offenders, but since
then economic conditions have changed. 1 told htm that fire protection
was a business proposition ami a patriot U- service and that nowhere was
this better appreciated than by rail-1
way lire guardians. If we are to get
ahead, we must stop talking pessimistically about the past; we must
obtain a thorough knowledge of present conditions and upon it make constructive plans for the future. Indeed, this applies in other fields than
that of forest (ire protection!
This is my object in writing the
present stories of articles. I am trying to help people to an understanding of our forest wealth and what is
being done to protect it from destruction by lire, so that they will have a
basis of judgment on which to develop
Intelligent plans for the future. The
forests belong to the people and they
are being destroyed much too rapidly
for the gooil of the country. If our
foresl wealth is lo be saved, the people must do it through their representative in the parliaments, nonunion and provincial.
The Hallways' Shart' in Korestw
Coming hack once more to a consideration of the railways and the
forests. I asked my caller if he reallv
knew what the material intones}, tfi
the railways in the forest was. He
confessed that he did not know. 11

my reader. Do you? Tbe chances [

oue'flfth of their total freight tonnage. Of this amount 111.5 million
tons consisted of the raw products,
such as logs, pulpwood, ties and lumber, and 4.5 million tons represented
manufactured forest products, such
as woodpulp, newsprint paper, wrapping paper, cardhoaid, hooks and
other printed matter.
Let nie help you to visualize what
this enormous freight traffic furnished by the forests means. Assuming
that each ear carried an average load
of 40 tons, we (Ind that. 000,000 freight
ears would he required to transport
the forest products. Again, assuming that au engine hauled 50 cars of
this class of tralllc. we get 12,000 engines to haul the 12,000 trains loaded
with forest freight. The average
freight car is 40 feet in length. If
all 1 lie cars were on the track at one
lime and divided into trains of 50
ears each with their engines, they
would extend 4,600 miles; in other
words, they would stretch from Halifax to Vancouver and back again to
Calgary.
(Iil.iilin Men Kept Busy
Each train crew consists of five
men. tlle conductor, engineer, two
brakemen und a fireman. In other
words. 00,000 men were required to
carry the forest products of 1923 ou
the railways. This means a number
of men equivalent to slightly over half
tlie population of Ottawa. Conversely, It means that number ot men
would he thrown out of employment
when fires reduce the yield of forest products to a minimum and. this ls
conditions that the ravages of forest
fires forecast if they are allowed to
continue at their present rate;  over
00 per cent of the forest area already
burned and the destruction is contin
uing at the rate of two million acres
a year on the paBt five year average.
During the summer months someone
is applying the torch to our forests
every twenty minutes during the daylight hours. Oh, men and women of
Canada, save the forest freight for
our railways! Keep Canada's for
ests green!

Dry Cleaning
Did you ever stop to figure that when you send a
suit or dress to the cleaners, you pay for the cleaning,
not barely removing the spots or patches of dirt?
This practice might improve the appearance of
your suit, but does not get to the real injurious particles of dirt and grease imbedded in the material.
In our method your clothes are washed in pure,
clear gas until every spot of grease and dirt is removed, then they are turned over to experienced hands,
shaped and pressed on one of the latest steam garment
pressers.

TOURISTS FROM
HOLLYWOOD LAND
A 112-LB. SKATE
COURTENAY, July 27.—A remarkable catch was made oft Little Rivor
beach on Saturday, when Mr. C. 0.
Lund ot Chicago, 111., and Mr. J. L.
Commertord ot Hollywood, Calif., two
touring campers, were trolling for
salmon.
Getting a bite they were at once
aware that they had a really big flsh.
It dldn t show tight of a spring salmon, though, and after a while they
brought the llsh to the surface. It
was too heavy to take into the boat
and so the boat was rowed ashore and
the flsh landed. It proved to be an
enormous skate, so large that some
ot the campers, among whom was Mr.
John Sutton, a well known resident
of Courtenay, went for some scales.
Amongst much excitement and a good
deal of speculation as to the actual
weight, the flsh was weighed, while
all the campers gathered round with
much interest. Almost Incredible as
It may seem, the huge mass actually
tipped the beam of the scales at one
hundred and twelve pounds (112 lbs.)
Mrs. Lund of Chicago is also at
Little River with her husband. The
party from Hollywood, Calif., includes
Mr. Clarence H. Franz, wife and
daughter and Mr. P. Commertord.

powerful. *We can see the cars from
here. I wouldn't believe there were
so many maple trees around here."
Lots of adjectives perhaps, but descriptive. Another tourist says, "As
a camp situation and convenience
there is none better. An Ideal spot
for newly-weds!" And another,
"Nice camp, but one or two shacks
that could be rented for the night
would be a big improvement."

COURTENAY BRIEFS
COURTENAY, July 27.—Tlle tourist auto park here continues to be
well patronized as will be seen from
the list of those who have visited the
spot within the last tfeek. Any one
who cares to look at the visitors' book
whicli Is kept In the park, will And
that the tourists, through the medium of the space in the book provided for remarks, carry on a sort ot
a debate amongst themselves as to
the virtues or otherwise of the place.
These remarks show an overwhelming
weight of opinion in favor of the park
. and they range all the way from a
cautious Scot's "Nae so bad" to the
statement thnt the "('amp Is the pink
ot perfection." This tourist adds,
"wood und water on hnnd for ever
and over." Practically ull the visitors are charmed with tlle natural
ie.iuty of the paik and thc surroundings. Here arc n few of their remarks:
"Happy to meet you." "Thank you,
Will come again." "Hud a very nice j
time, beautiful farms and country.' [
"We like It." "1'ietty good, loin ofj
room for improvements'," "The camp I
Is nice and quite and nicely situated
Lut the fire places are rather large."
"The camp In O.K. We have enjoyed
the visit."
From the words of appreciation for
tbe courtesies of Constable Cairns, It
Is evident that he is looking after
tho Interests of the campers and at
the same time doing the city and dis-
' trict a service too. Says one camper—perhaps a lady—"I enjoyed the
quiet camp, come to Seattle, they will
welcome you there."
There are a few entries such as the
following: "Sanitary conditions could
be improved." "Fees should be used
for Improvements to sanitary condl-
' tions." After which M.J.T. of Victoria has written "Please excuse these
people as they know no better. They
haven't as good at home." Other
tourists Bay, "Just made u brief visit,
nnd It most convenient, come to Victoria aud Bee our tourist camp."
"Charming spot." "We think this is
a beautiful pluce to camp nnd enjoyed our Btay." "We like your
place, we like your style, and bo we
lingered a little while." "Quiet
place Isn't it?" A little girl from
Victoria wrote, "The auto camp Is u
