Qualicum Entry
Meets Cumberland
Sunday Afternoon
Cumberland has another home gamo
this coming Sunday afternoon in the
Pacific Coast Second Division leaguo,
the Qualicum entry being scheduled
to perform here at 2:30 o'clock. It
is tiie lirst time that Qualicum has
hod a real honest-to-goodneBs team
in any league of note, and consequently the residents of the popular summer resort are backlng-thelr players
to the limit. Citizens of Cumberland
by turning out in force to this game
and giving each team a fair measure
of support, will do much to encourage
the visiting players, most of whom
are experts at the round ball gome
but lack the experience of playing
before a crowd.
Cumberland will present the following line-up, revised especially for this
game: Stewart; Bickle, Marshall;
Little, Farmer, Weir; McLeod, Stevenson, Campbell, Walker and Harry
Jackson.
Courtenay and West Coast United,
the other two teams In the league,
are scheduled to meet at Port Alberni
Sunday afternoon.

OLD TIME DANCE AT
ILO-ILO DANCE HALL
WAS WELL ATTENDED
The first of the series of old time
dances to he held at the llo-llo dance
hall throughout the winter took place
last Saturday and was a magnificent
success. All old time dances was the
order of the evening, there being a
total absence of the Jazz fox trot.
The large crowd thoroughly appreciated the efforts of the orchestra composed of Messrs. R. Goodali, piano;
S. L. Robertson, violin; Jack Stewart,
drums, and Cyril Newman, saxapbone,
encores being numerous. Dancing
started at ll p.m. and continued until
midnight and we are given to understand that these dunces will be held
every Saturday night. For a real
good, happy, snappy time, visit the
llo-llo dunce hall every Saturday
night.   Gents, 150c., Ladles. 10c.
i    A   fox   terrier,   and   only   a   little
I fellow at that, introducod a touch of
comedy und pathos Into an otherwise
unexciting   game   when   Cumberland
und  Courtenay   locked   horns   In   the
I opening match of the up-Island Sec-
: oud Division league here last Sunday.
I Late in Ihe second half the score wns
| standing  1-0  with Cumberland   lending,  when  the teirler,  bent on  fun,
I ambled ufter the hall und refused to
be frightened off by the wild-swinging
I boots and flying pebbles aimed lu his
j direction hy the plnyers.   The crowd
: wus getting a grent kick out of the
procedure, especially when a foul shot
i was given, for just as often as the
i player placed the ball lu position the
j dog would snenk out from behind tlle
| goal posts and nose the ball up the
j held as prettily as Charlie  Hltchens
| could  dribble  it.   This  was  kept up
j intermittently for five or ten minutes,
the  plnyers  keeping up their volley
of boots snd stones and the dog artfully   dodging   them,   when   suddenly
the laughter of the crowd ceased. One
of the Courtenay players had thrown
a larger stone, which bouncing along,
caught the terrier under the chin and
laid him low.   The force of the blow
temporarily   paralyzed    the    puppy's
fore-legs   and  many  of  the  plnyers
rushed to his assistance.   The crowd
yelled for time-out and referee Tom
Carney was forced  to accede.     The
little dog was given nil the care an
injured   player   would   receive   and
when   he   was  carried  away  by  his
owner the paralysis had passed and
he was suffering with no more than
a few cuts about the chin.   The spectators were considerably relieved, for
all had experienced a rush of sympathy at the tragic end of the terrier's
playful gambols, but no oue felt more
hurt about the Incident tiian did the
Courtenay player who had thrown the
rock.
This incident was undoubtedly a
contributing factor in the evening of
the score by Courtenay soon afterward, for the local defense seemed to
have become disrupted and one of
Robinson's crosses from tlie right
wing found the net after being missed
by the Cumberland goalie, full backs
snd one half back. The latter had
the best chance to save the shot but
his wild swing was no more than
just that.
Cumberland's tally was netted a
few minutes after the start of the
game, Bill Walker slamming In a nice
cross from tlle right wing. The
locals played with ten men throughout the greater part of the game, Alex
Auchlnvole, centre, being forced to
retire early in the first period owing
to nn injured ankle. He endeavored
to start again in the second period
but soon went to the dressing room.
Perhaps the terrier, noting tlie vncan-
cy in Cumberland's front line, wns
trying to help out bis home team.
The game was fairly even, no side
showing any really line touches, and
a draw was doubtless a fitting verdict.
Tom Carney refereed nnd tbe teams
were:
Courtenay—Piercy; Thompson and
W. Auchlnvole; Buckley, Strachan
and Bowie; A. Robinson, J. Robinson,
Dnrgie, Cummings and Miller.
Cumberland—Stewart; Bickle and
Marshall; Little, Farmer and Weir;
Gibson, Hunden, A. Auchlnvole, Stevenson nnd Walker.

Qunlloum and Port Alberni also met
In n league gnmc at the former place
on Sunday, the Port team winning by
the score of 8 goals to 0.
BEATTY REACHES 19
Montreal, .Oct. 18.—E. W. Bentty.
K. C, president of the Canadian Pacific Railway,' was the recipient of
congratulations from nil parts of the
continent on Saturday, the event
being his 49th birthday.
All those who attended the last
meeting of the Parent Teachers
Association of Cumberland held on
the evening qf October 18th, found
themselves present at a very Interesting session.
The new president, Mrs. Geo. Clinton was in the chair, conducting the
proceedings. The programme was n
long one ami could have been longer
but It was condensed so us to get
through a lot of business In the
shortest possible time.
The membership committee reported that llie Association is now one
hundred and eleven strong.
The piinciple event of the evening
was an address delivered by Dr. Bruce
Gordon on the subject of care of the
children's teeth. This address is
printed in a separate section of this
paper (page four) so as to form an
article in Itself.
Several musical numbers were rendered by boy pupils of tbe school.
The "games anil play movement"
inaugurated at tlie Cumberland Puhlic
School is getting under way. Committees have heen appointed to take
charge of the different games proposed to be taken up, and several
competent persons have volunteered
to act as coaches. Tlie games selected are as folows: hockey (grass),
soccer, basketball, badminton, tennis,
antl footracing, while First Aid and
physical drill are also contemplated,
A lot of equipment will have to be
bought and In order to raise money
I a tea and concert will bc given.
j It Is apparent that the teachers are
solidly behind this movement and if
lt Is carried to full fruition, as seems
probable, It Vill be of Inestimable
benefit to tlie children of Cumberland, It will develop future citizens
sound Iu wind and limb, lt will
foster an esprit-de-corps which Is not
now to be found. Good sportsmanship and unselfishness will bo encouraged, it will give the children,
especially the older ones, something
in which to be interested during the
hours of the dny In which they are
out of the school room. If the boys
can be got to enthuse over Held games
and athletics, there will he less tendency for them to gravitate to the
status of sidewalk lizards.
Many parents are lending a hand
In this "games" movement by working
on the committees and some have
volunteered to attend at the school
to supervise the games of tbe primary
classes. However, more volunteers
will be needed if the full efficiency of
supervision is to be attained. It is to
he hoped that tlie value of organized
games will be appreciated. Every
generation should enjoy advantages
and benefits that its predecessor did
not have, and because all of us have
not enjoyed the benefits of education
and athletics is no reason why we
should hold our children down to our
levdl. Let our motto be "Forward
Cumberland!"

Courtenay City
Auto Park Not
Successful Venture
COURTENAY. Oct. 19.—The city
auto park came in for a good ileal of
discussion nt Monday night's council
meeting. The park has been under
the supervision of the Courtenay-
Comox Board of Trade during tlie
past season and the secretary of the
Board, H. B. Wallis, now attended to
explain that In the spring a committee had been appointed which hnd
authorised the expenditure of n certain amount of money on improvements. The contractor's bill for the
work was (275; The season had not
been a very good one as far as the
tourists were concerned, and the
mnjor part of the contractor's bill
was still unpaid. There was, ill fact,
(175 still owing. Efforts had been
made lo collect from delinquent members of the Bourd and from other
sources without much success. He
wns before the council to see If they
were willing to help In the reduction
of the debt and if so. to wlint extent.
Aid. Field asked what Indication
there was of tlie Hoard or Trade raising some money In (he near future.
He thought thut the sum required by
tlie Board of Trade, which nmountcd
lu all to (200, would be u large expenditure nt this time of tlie your.
Aid. MacDonald thought thnt the
handling of the auto park hy the
Hoard of Trade had been a failure.
which Mr. Wallis admitted, Mayor
McKenzie thought there was only one
thing to do and that was to absorb
tbe bill and have It done with, seeing
that the uuto park was City properly.
He was of the opinion, however, thai
the work of Mr. Endie and Mr. Wallis,
president and secretary respectively
of the Board of Trade, should be recognized. Aid. Fleld remarked that as
It was ratepayers' money which hud
purchased the park, it should he administered from 1 ho City bull. On
motion of Aid. Field, nnd Lloyd, thc
City is to assume tlie debt.
The mutter of the possibility of
using (he Creamery ns a central plant
for supplying steam heat lo the public
school, the city hall, nnd (be lire hall,
was discussed and may be gone Into
further.

I That Cumberland Is rich in amateur
entertainers is a fact well known to
] everyone who attends tlie various
social functions held within the city,
hut the fact also remains that there
are many other entertainers of ability
who have never yet had opportunity
of making the public aware of their
abilities. It is for the benefit of both
these classes, and more especially the
latter, that the management of the
Ilo-Ilo Theatre has outlined en ambitious "amateur entertainment" programme to be carried out in conjunction with and between tlie regular
evening shows, or about 8:45 p.m.
Any person, whether infant or adult,
may enter tlie competition, for such
it will be, but to prevent Ihe unfairness of one exlreme ciimpellng
againsl the other the plans call for
three distinct classes, to be designated
respectively: Infants' class, any age
up to 10 years; Juniors' class, from
10 to 18 years; and Seniors' class,
any age over 18 years. Each of the.se
divisions will be given one week In
which to present their entertainment
lo tlie Ilo-Ilo pntronH. Fm* instance,
the competition commences Monday
evening, November 1st, and frnm Hint
date until Nov. Cth only entrants in
the Infants' class will be permitted
lo perform. The following week.
Nov. 8th to 13th. Is for Juniors only,
nnd thc week uf .November 16th In
20th Is Seniors' week. Then the programme will bc repeated, beginning
again with Infants' week.
At least two entertainers will be
put on each night, from Monday tn
Friday if possible, and competent
judges will select each night (he one
they consider to have given (lie best
performance. On Saturday evening
tlie five respective winners of tlie
previous evenings will compete in tlie
final test and from these live the
judges will pick out those to whom
die first, second and third prizes tire
to be awarded. For Infants' week
the prizes nre: lsl. (5.00; 2nd, (2,60;

To Chinese Labor
COUUTKNAY, Oct. 20.—A number
ol" letters engaged the attention of the
Courtenay-Comox Hoard of Trade at
a meeting ut the city hall on Tuesday
niglit. The council of the Brantford
(Ontario.) Hoard of Trade wrote suggesting amending the Census Act so
as to include the word "Canadian" iu
tlie returns, This letter was the
means of bringing out the fact that
there is uo BUCh thing as a Canadian,
tlie nearest definition In the census
rolls being "native born." A committee consisting of Messrs. Anderton.
Brock and Hughes was appointed for
the purpose oi' drawing up a resolution favoring the inclusion of the
word to be sent to Brantford.
District engineer Ford, of the Dept,
of Public Works, wrote asking for
figures on freight tonnage on the
Courtenay itiver during the past year.
Tiie secretary was requested to send
the information,
From the Postal Department came
the Information that an additional
round trip to Campbell Kiver every
Thursday had been authorized. Mr.
P. L. Anderton thought the Board
should conitnue to press for a daily
service until such was inaugurated,
but would thank the Post Master for
Ihe improvement in the mean time.
This course is to be adopted.
Other correspondence received was
from the Treasury Dept. relative to
the gross income tax, and from the
Orillia lOntario) Board of Trade In
connection with the celebration of
Dominion   Day.
Powell Itiver Boat Service
Mr. It. U. Hurford reported that a
Mr. Carter was contemplating putting
on a boat to serve between Courtenay
and Powell Itiver. The boat was 5tJ
feet in length with a 14 ft. beam. He
was equipping tlie craft with a semi-
deisel engine and would be ready to
commence operating by the first of
January. The speaker thought it
would be good business for the City
of Courtenay to induce Mr. Carter to
install a mure powerful engine and
to get behind him with all possible
assistance. .Mr. Wm. Douglas was of
the same opinion. Capt. E. Lloyd explained tlie carrying capacity of such
a boat and described the regulations
under which she would be permitted
to operate. It was doubtful, he stated,
if a boat of this tonnage could maintain a service on regular schedule.
Mayor McKenzie stated that the City
of Courtenay was very interested in
the matter of a dully boat service to
Powell Itiver. He would certainly
call a meeting of the council to me^t
members of the Board of Trade and
Mr. Carter as suggested by the meeting, and the city would offer every
assistance, if necessary up to a sum
of $80,000, but the city would naturally have to have proper protection.
The importance of a boat operating
out of Courtenay compared with a
boat calling here from some other
port was pointed oul. Business conditions with Powell Itiver were very
promising. Every boat is now taking
produce from this point to Powell
River, with prospects of a steady increase being maintained. A meeting
between the two bodies aud the boat
owner is to be arranged for the near
future.
Op.iccfs to Chilli's," Labor
Other reports were submitted by
Mr. A. Cleland and Mr Wm. Douglas.
The matter of employing Chinese
labor at the Courtenay Lumber Mill
was the subject of .much discussion.
Mr. Cleland spoke very warmly on
the matter. 11" had been understood
at the time the slock was sold that It
was to he a "white man's" mill, he
said. The Board of Trade should see
that only white men are employed
aud if the Board did not, he was
ready to resign and to induce others
to do likewise, The meeting was of
the opinion lhat tbe management
would adjust the matter If given
(ime. aud it was stated that the Mill
will commence cutting on Wednesday,
being now ready to do so.
Mr.   Wallis   reported  that   the  city
had generously come to the assistance
of tlie Board  in  connection  with  the
J Auto   Park.    Mayor   McKenzie  stated
I lhat it was llie city's intention to completely renew  tho fences round the
■ park with a view of preventing cattle
entering and becoming a nuisance to

THE SIMPLE FAITH We note with satisfaction a surcease from the
wrangle between the liberals and the conservatives in the church. For some time now we have
had no trials of heretics and no big sensations in
the pulpit. Real religion never can be appraised
by human intelligence. It must be based on
faith—which has nothing to do with reason. Man
thinks himself pretty smart and has gone a long
way since the dawn of civilization in harnessing
the forces of nature. Still years of planning and
industry are wiped out in an hour by a tropical
hurricane, a boat worth millions goes to the bottom of thc sea when it strikes an iceberg, the
scientist who has braved death in his laboratory
scratches his finger and perishes from an infection. There are still millions of simple things
beyond the human conception.
Whence came ye and whither are ye going, is
father calmly went about caring for his little
son's future by the writing of letters, including
in them such instructions as he would give the
boy each year had he lived. The father died when
thirty-six. At the time of his death a letter
from him and read to the son said that he would
receive a leter on each of his birthdays until he
reached the age of twenty-one. The first letter
to the little lad on his sixth birthday urged the
boy to be good to his mother.
Mrs. Stevenson refused to make public the
letter, declaring that it was her son's most
precious legacy and it must remain for him to
decide in later years whether others shall read
them.
How many fathers, most of whom give so
little thought to. the training of their children,
would write fifteen leters on their deathbed to
help that son on his journey to manhood?
Dick Stevenson was not only a good soldier,
ho was a splendid father who appreciated his
duty to his son.

Frank Campeau, who plays one of
the three typical old-time frontier
desperadoes in the mammoth production "3 Bad Men," wlhch John Ford
recently completed for Fox In the
very heart of the Mojave Desert, is
one of the hest dllineators of the
Western man ever seen on stage or
screen.
His Ilrst great hit was as the villainous cowboy, "Trampas," in "The
Virginian." Dustln Farnum, the popular star of that Owen Wlster masterpiece, was amazed on the morning
after the Broadway opening to find
all of the critics In New Vork giving
first credit to Campeau.
But in "3 Bad Men," which is being
shown at the Gaiety Theatre tonight
and tomorrow, Campeau is at the very
hest of his career.
Jack Hoxle rides like a demon,
fights like a wild man and makes love
like a Romeo in "Bustin' Through," a
Universal-Blue Streak Western at the

a splendid supporting cast. Including

'THANK YOU" SHOWS
SMALL TOWN GOSSIP
IN HER TRUE LIGHT
The trouble that gossips cause in
this poor old world!
If you dou't believe it, see "Thank
You," the William Fox picturization
of the John Golden stage success,
coming to the Gaiety Theatre next
Wednesday and Thursday, Oct. 27-28,
and to the Ilo-Ilo Theatre Friday and
Saturday, October 29-30.
For gossips cause ail the mischief
in this story of a small New England
town. They make life hard for the
benignant and impoverished pastor,
the Hev. Mr. Lee (Alec B. Francis);
they meddle In his alliairs and try to
run his household; tliey even attempt
to send his orphaned niece away from
his home.
And they do their level best to
break up the romance between tlle
niece (Jacqueline Logan) and the
young city boy (George O'Brien). In
the end, however, they are all frustrated, simply because the Rev. iMr.
Lee's Christianity Is better than theirs
—all hough his almost costs him his
life.
A most unusual all-star cast is seen
In "Thank Vou," headed by Mr. Francis, .Mr. O'Brien and Miss Logan. In
support are George Fawcett, James
Neill, J. Farrell McDonald, Cyril B.
Chadwick, Marlon Harlan, Edith Bos-
twick, William Courtrlght and Fjank-
le Bailey.
1 How the folks at home who read
the newspapers during the thrilling
idays of the Great War longed to get
a look at No Man's Land—to see
what the war really was like!
Well, No Man's Land is now available to all movie goers. In "Behind
the Front" Edward Sutherland, Paramount director, shows exactly what
It Is like.
It is far from a comfortable place
—at least Wallace Beery and Raymond Hatton, who play featured roles
In "Behind the Front." found it that
way.
It was all a mistake. Beery nnd
Hatton, two doughboys, belong way
back in the S. 0. S. They get a little
too convivial In a French buvette, and
reach the front through accident—
Instead of a hot meal which is intended for tlie boys In the front-line
trenches.
Then they get all mixed up, wander into No Man's Land, and Inlo tbe
German trendies. By a lucky chance
they get German uniforms, and start
hack.
And that's where the observer gets
his hest view of No .Man's Land —
with the shells of both sides bursting
around tlle shellhole where Beery and
Hatton are concealed trying to get
rid of their purloined German accoutrements.
But they didn't succeed. A German tank comes toward them. The
German soldiers running it make the
mistake of trying to rescue them,
Then—well, you'd better see this comedy to really appreciate it.
"Behind the Front" features beautiful Mary Brian, In addition to Beery
and Hatton. It was adapted by Monty
Brice from a Hugh Wiley story. It's
coming to the llo-llo Theatre Oct. 27
and 28, and to the Gaiety Theatre on
Oct. 29 and 30.
FILM PLAYER DISCOVERS
RELICS OF GOLDEN Wa
Trick riding and other perilous exploits were done by Miss Sedgwick
to make a success of her lirst starring
vehicle, "The Outlaw's Daughter," a
Universal Blue Streak Western which
is coming to the Gaiety Theatre as
one of a double programme next
Friday and Saturday, Oct. 29 and 30.
Miss Sedgwick was so anxious about
her picture that she refused to have
a double for even the most perilous
deeds. In the cast of tlie picture are
Edward Hearne, Jack Gavin, Harry
Todd. Bob Burns nnd Robert Walker.
Many an accident has occurred because the man at the wheel refused
to release his clutch.
—Boston  Beanpot.
Neil Hamilton, Paramount featured
player, now knows just exactly how
Columbus felt when he discovered
America, or Balboa when he Ilrst saw
tiie Pacific Ocean.
For Nell also made a discovery a
few months ago. and (he thrill lie got
out of it is somewhat akin to that of
an antique collector who Minis a very
valuahle painting or u rare piece of
furniture In a musty old attic.
Tbe youthful actor's findings consisted of a shovel, a pickaxe and a
gold washing pan, relies of the gold
rush days. He discovered them buried in a tangle of grass ami iiusiies,
at tlle base of a two thousand foot
cliff, high up In (he Sierra Nevada
mountains of California.
It was while llo was on location
with tlie Clarence Badger unit, filming scenes for Betty Bronson's Initial
starling vehicle, "The Golden Princess" that Neil ran across the mining
accessories. According to the growth
with which tho articles were covered,
prospectors taking part in the'picture
declared them to be from fifty to
seventy-five years old.
Mr. Badger, the director, was particularly pleased With Hamilton's discovery, because he wns in the midst
of reproducing the historic gold rush
of '49, around whicli "Tlie Golden
Princess" centers, und the articles
came In handy as "props."
Miss Bronson has llie title role In
tills production, which comes to the
Gaiety Theatre next Monday, Oct. 2.**,,

Heard In Notable
Address To P.T.A.
Tho following clear and lucid address was delivered by Dr. \V. Bruce
Gordon, the well-known local dentist,
to the members of the Cumberland
Parent-Teacher .Association at their
usual monthly meeting hold Monday
evening last:
VANCOUVER
"I wish to thank the P. T. A. for
the privilege of again addressing them
on Hie care of children's teeth, lt is
a subject in which we are all Interested, and means a great deal in the
physical development ol the child concerned.
"The most Important period in a
child's life is the Ilrst 12 years. The
growth and development up to that
age is very rapid and that is tho
Inundation oil which we expect to
build the mnn or woman. Withoul
good, sound teeth we cannot hope to
erect a strong, solid foundation. Everj
cavity helps to destroy the mastic;..-
ing power of the child, and if thc
cavity is not filled it is not long um 11
the tooth Ih lost. Unless the food is
well masticated wo cannot expect to
build a healthy child,
"The baby's teeth must be kept in
proper condition if good health and
sound, regular and permanent teeth
are desired. It is cruelty to permit
the teeth of a young child to decay or
to neglect baby teeth that show decay
merely because the teetli are only
temporary. Temporary teeth are just
as important to the child as permanent teeth are to the adult. Not till
recently have we discovered that nt
least four-fifths of the trouble people
have With their teeth in adult years
is due to neglect of the Ilrst set.
"Parents generally are under the
impression tbat it is not worth while
to concern themselves about the lirst
set as they are only temporary and
must be lost sooner or later. This is
a grave mistake because the development of the jaw depends largely if
not wholly upon tho length of time
the first teeth are retained. If the
lirst teeth are allowed to decay anil
become ahcessed, the permanent teeth
are sure to be damaged, and for this
reason the child should be taken
regularly to the dentist to keep the
first teeth under close observation.
"Nature does not seem to make the
first teeth of as good material as tbe
second set—at least decay seems to
work much faster iu the flrst thau i>i
the permanent teeth. This is due
probably to the fact that the growing
child needs more lime when the bones
are forming so the first teeth do nol
have the resistance to fight decay.
The best way to combat decay is to
see that tbe child has plenty of tooth
building food and to see that the
mouth is kept clean.

"fhe care of the teetli from the
time that the first tooth appears is
entirely in the bands of tbo parents.
After the child enters school the
medical or dental examiners should
advise the parents. It is estimated
that about DO per cent of the children |
entering school need dental attention. I
This is uot always because the teeth '
have not beeu properly cleaned. The
incorrect diet of tlie mother during
tlie prenatal period is responsible for
x large amount of decay, because the
teeth start to develop as early as the
fifth week of fetal life and continue
to develop until birth. At birth all
of tlie decidious teeth are formed oi j
have started to form. If all mothers
would eat the proper foods during
this period aud if the child is given
the proper diet after birth the need
for dentists would not be so great.
"At the age of six the first perman-
enl molar, or. as it is commonly called
the sixth year molar.' appears. Thi.-
is probably the mosl important tooth
of ilie permanent set, as it iu the
cornerstone of the mouth, so if these
four first teeth are lost by decay ot
mi placed all Ihe oilier teeth are very
iiluiy to become misplaced also. If
ilo; second decidious molar is lost before this tooth erupts, the sixth yeai
molar will cume forward and be mis-
placed and all the other permanent
teeth are likely to suiter likewise. A
molar tooth is formed irom t\\t> different tooth germs and as tbey unite
to form the tooth each germ becomes
a cusp, in many cases this sixth
year molar erupts In-fore the cusps
are entirely united and this leaves a
fine crack at the bottom of the groove
in tho tooth. This is an excellent
place for decay to start aud very often
the tooth is so badly decayed by tiie
time the dentist sees if that nothing
can be done to save it. The sixth
year molar Is tlie most neglected tooth
in the mouth, often through ignorance
of tbe parent mistaking it for a temporary tooth aud nol until the child
has a jumping toothache is the damage delected and frequently the tootli
must be extracted.
"In looking over statistics of various cities we find that where dental
Inspection and dental attention ts
compulsory there has beon a marked
Improvement in school studies. In
Ontario, where the Department of
Public Health for both the city ol
Toronto and province lakes keen interest along these lines, as many tiA
Sixteen dentists are employed in
either full or part time in this work.
Also in the I'nited States enormous
strides have taken place along sim-
lair linos and notice that in the city
of Bridgeport, Conn., one of the requirements for passing from the 5th
to the 6th grade tn the public school
Is to have no unfilled cavities. They
were aide to report that 100 per cenl
passed. A child's progress at school
depends in large degree on thc condition of his teeth. This is shown by
tbe fact that in the same city of
Bridgeport less money is spent for
the repeated schooling of backward
Children than in any oilier city shown
in tlie list. This is based upon carefully kepi records and regular inspection. What has been accomplished
thee should be possible in otber cities
and towns.
"To recognize the sixth year molar
count six from the centre of the
mouth as it erupts behind all tbe
temporary tooth of which there are

'Decay of the teeth always starts
I rum the outside, not from the inside
as   many   parents   Imagine.     Decay
arts' most frequently between the
teeth, the enamel of tlle teeth covers
the outside and is made up of crystal-
like rods. The rods are cemented together by a natural cementun and it
is this cementun that can be destroyed
by acid. Sugar and starchy foods, if
allowed in the mouth, ferment and
form lactic acid, which dissolves the
cement in the enamel aud the crystallike rods fall out, leaving a cavity.
After tlle enamel is broken through
it is easy for bacteria to eat the den-
line and undermine the rest of the
enamel and before one realizes it the
whole tooth bus gone.
"II our children are going to have
good, strong teeth, give plenty of
svliotesoine food, have them drink
plenty of milk, not eat so ninny sweets
nml see that the teeth are cleaned
llnce or four times a day, ulso consult a dentist frequently. While a
due proportion of carbohydrateii Is
necessary In the diet, It is of Importance that we should encourage their
use as far as possible in tlieir natural
association with" other materials, or,
ni oilier words, as they occur 111 whole
Wheat, fresh fruit, vegetables, etc.,
rather Ulan in the forms of the separated, refined and concentrated flours,
starches and sugars of commerce.
"lt Is recognized by both medical
ind dental authorities that the present excessive use of manufactured
sugars such us chocolates, biscuits,
,:akes, etc.. especially between meals
or at bed-time, is the most potent
cause of indigestion, malnutrition and
dental disease among children. .The
practice of eating sweets between
meals by children should be condemned without reservation us to the
quality of the sweets. When choosing
candy it Is better for children lo eat
the boiled caudles such as barley
jugar, fruit drops, etc., rather than
soft, sticky sweets such as chocolates.
"The necessity of vigorous mastication is a vital (function and cannot be
ioo strongly emphasized, and the diet
should consist largely of foods which
give due exercise lo parts provided
by nature for ibis purpose, namely
the jaws, teeth, tongue nnd salivary
glands. Such exercise is not only
necessary for the development of
these structures, but reacts favorably
on the whole digestive tract as well
us on Ihe whole body, so the eating of
food such as stale bread, crusts, toast,
iiven-ilrled bread, raw apples and
other fruit, also lettuco and various
vegetables In the raw state, cannot
be too strongly recommended. On
the oilier hand, a soil, sloppy diet Is
to be equally condemned.
"I would like to say a few words
about a tooth brush. In the case of
a young child one of the smaller sizes
is best, a medium stiffness in the
bristles, and the careful Instruction
of the parent as to thc proper way
of brushing, which bIiouUI be of a
rotating up and down motion in preference to the usual manner of brushing straight across the teeth. This
should be done three times a day and
just before retiring al night, the laat
lu'ing the most Important. If some
of Ihe meal times are neglected, care
should be taken that the oversight Is
taken care of ut bed-time. It ls also
best to teach thc child to have pride
In the appearance of the teeth and
such little things as having a particu- _
inr place to hang the brush and marking initials on Ihe handle will often
help tlle child to take pride in this
dally routine. Care should he taken
to see that the brush itself is kept ill
a sanitary condition and any well-
known tooth paste may be used.

COURTENAY, Oct. 18.—At the annual meeting of the Comox Potato
Growers; Association which was'held
in the agricultural hall on Friday
evening with Mr. H. p. Allberry in
the chair, the retiring directors, with
the exception of Mr. Geo. Bigelow.
were re-elected, Mr. E. 'W. Butler
taking his place. The minutes of the
last annual meeting were read and
adopted, also sthe minutes of a general meeting held In May were adopted as  read.
Mr, H. R. Clark, secretary-treasurer,
submitted the financial statement,
which was duly accepted. Mr. Clark
was thanked for his services during
tlie year and voted a sum of twenty
dollars by the meeting.
The president reported that "Idaho
Rural" samples tried out In this district were proved useless as seed,
being over fifty per cent mosaic. He
mentioned the necessity of securing
clean seed of varieties grown In the
south, also the necessity of central
organization sending a live representative to visit I'nited States growers
and select some clean seed from good
fields In the States to the south of
us, also to see how potatoes which
have been sent from here have turned
out. and to hook orders for the local
growers.
Would Establish Testing Station
The meeting felt that il would be
in the interests of the potato Industry
in B. C. to establish n testing station

special efforts could he made to develop und multiply disease-free
strains of varieties of potatoes to he
grown for certification purposes here.
Last year's committee was appointed to look after the district exhibit
and display of seed potatoes at the
B. C. Seed, Bulb and Potato Show.
The meeting thought that this would
be an excellent opportunity to advertise our potatoes and the district and
lo book orders for considerable seed
if a representative of the local association could he in attendance.
Mr. H. U. Hurford reported on the
sales of the past season. BurbanUs
bad sold readily at good prices with
less demand for other varieties. This
year's crop is below standard owing
lo a dry season, several crops being
of a small variety and growers art'
anxious to dispose of them as com-
merelnl seed. After some discussion
it was decided to set a price of $35
per ton for both the small potatoes
from certified fields and also small
potatoes from fields grown from certified seed.
Capt. (J. R. Bates, secretary of the
central association, spoko on thc price
of certified seed. He considered the
price set last fall of $8-0 was too high.
aud that (he price would have to be
lower, also that the executive should
have power to adjust prices. The
price of certified seed potatoes was
left to be set by the central association as it sees fit. He warned againsl
setting the price for commercial seed
that might effect the sale of certified
seed. The meeting felt that it would
not pay the growers to produce certified seed if the price is reduced to
any extent. Also that the amount ol
certified  seed produced only permits

about five por cent of the crop of the
province being planted with this seed,
it was therefore thought that it would
be beneficial to the potato industry to
eucourage growers to use commercial
seed grown from certified seed until
a larger amount of certified seed can
be produced and a larger demand
created for It. Capt. Hates also
mentioned the worK which has been
one in connection wfth organization
of commercial potatoes. He said that
the  wholesalers   in   Vancouver   were
willing to enter into a contract for
three hundred cars of peerless brand
potatoes, these to be commercial potatoes grown from certified seed. This
was felt lo be a move in the right
direction. G. It. Bates was nominated to represent this district as director on the central association and
Messrs. H, P. Allberry and W. A. Urquhart were appointed delegates to
the potato growers' convention at
Victoria during the potato show.

There was also a letter from the
city clerk requesting a raise in salary.
Mr. Wood pointed out that the revenue from the electric light and water
utilities had increased very considerably during the lust few years and
that much greater responsibilities
were now undertaken by the ollice of

with under reports of committees, and
Aid. Field, chairman of the finance
committee, said that the matter had
been considered both by his committee and tlie electric light committee.
The question of reading the light

Ilu-llo Theatre and every Tuesday at
tho Gaiety Theatre, Courtenay.
For "Wild West," a story combining
all the elements of the approved
Western, with one about circus life
anil circus folk it was necessary to
secure the use of an extensive ranch
where, according to the story, there
was plenty of room for a stranded
tent show, animals and all, to take
refuge.
This also necessitated the use of
trained animals, keepers, trainers,
wagons and all the other circus paraphernalia. There was ouly one spot
in America that had both—the Miller
Brothers' 11)1 Ranch, which Is also the
winter and training quarters of the

Here elephants, camels, lions! tigers
and other beasts of the jungle are
