St. Dsvld's day, Monday, March 1,
will be celebrated this year in Cumberland by the local Welsh Society,
the celebration taking the form of
a supper, concert and dance to be
held In the Ilo-Ilo. Last year we
publlshedd a short account of the life
ot St. David and asked any of our
readers for further information on
the patron saint ot Wales. A few
days ago we received the following
letter from Mr. Daniel Davies together with a most interesting account of the activities of St. David.
Sayward P. 0.
Vancouver  Island,
.    Feb. 16th, 1926.
The Editor,
Cumberland Islander.
Dear Sir:
Some time ago I was given an old
copy ot your paper of March 6, 1925,
with an account of the St.. David's
Day celebrations and asking for any
particulars which could be given of
St. David. I have since had a paper
from South Wales, a cutting from
which I am enclosing, also a few
items which I have copied from an
old history of Wales I have here.
Trusting they will be of Interest to
your readers as St. David's Day is
very near again, I remain
Yours truly,
Daniel  Davies.
His teachers were Illtyd and Pawl
Hen. With Tello, his fellow student,
and Padarn, he is said to have made
a pilgrimage to Jerusalem, where
each distinguished himself; Dewl for
performing the service best, Padarn
for singing best, and Tello as tho
best preacher. The most credible ot
the many traditions and legends respecting him is that which ascribes
to him in company with Padarn uml
Tello the character of "blessed visitors," because they went about to
rich and poor, not for money, food
or drink, but to teach the faith of
Christ.
According to Owynfardd, a poet of
about 1200 A.D., he did not restrict
himself to Wales and he was not always well received, nor did he always
overcome evil with good. This bard
says:
"He endureth buffeting*, yea terrible
blows,
From the hands- of an  uncourteous
woman, void of shame;
He   took  vengeance,   he   endangered
the sceptre of Devon
And those who were not slain were
The article accompanying the above
letter follows:
St. David was the son ot Ssndde.
prince of Caredigion, and descended
from Cunedda Wledig.
The Cumberland Badminton Club
at a fairly well-attended meeting held
in the Anglican Hall on Monday eve-
nig last, decided to suspend operations for the season at the end of
February, instead of going on until
the end of March, as In former years.
Lack of interest- by the members was
the cause given by the President, Mr.
T. H. Mumford, why It would be advisable to suspend activities.
The season will also terminate at
the Royston Courts on March 15.
In the meantime It Is confidently expected that the district tournament
will be got under way and completed
by March 19.

SUCCESSFUL G. W. V. A. -
WHIST DRIVE AND DANCE
Up to the time ot his being canonized, in 1120 A.D., others disputed the
pre-eminence with him; but ever
since he has been the tutelar saint
of Wales, and the traditions, which
elder time had associated with other
national heroes, (as for extynple, the
badge of the leek with Cad walk wn)
were transferred to him.
That he obtained a place amongst
the "seven champions of Christendom" Is another proof of the height
of his fame, and seems to associate

HERE'S ONE MOVIE
WITHOUT A VILLAIN
They All Prove Themselves
Heroes in "The Lost
World.**
REWARD
Find the villain!
That was the popular endeavor of
the cast of "The Lost World," the
First National-Watterson R. Rothack-
er super-feature adaptation of the
thrilling Conan Doyle novel, which
comes te the Ilo-Ilo Theatre, Thursday, Friday and Saturday, March 4,
6 and 6.
"The Lost World" narrates the adventures of three men and a girl ln
search of a surviving life of the prehistoric dinosaur age somewhere ln
South America. Here the primitive
forces of human nature clash against
the hostile forces of the wild country
about them. In this setting, where
nature Is at Ita beat and at Its worst,
the matter of designating the villain
proves a teaser.
"I thought I was," says Wallace
Beery. "I've almost always been cast
as the villain, but I'll be hanged it I
don't believe I'm as much the hero aB
anyone else."
"Perhaps it's me," ventures Bessie
Love, who, of course, was chosen to
be the heroine. "It's awful, trying to
be always good in a setting like that"
"I'm guilty," says Lowls Stone, who
has every reason for being but, by a
noble sacrifice, proves himself a laudable hero.

Bob Robertson, pianist and leader
of the snappy five-piece orchestra
now furnishing music for the weekly
Saturday night dances' in the Ilo-Ilo
Hall, will offer a reward of five free
passes to the dances to any person
designing the best harness that will
counteract the head-swaying of the
orchestra's peppy traps player, Tom
McLellan, Tom has a habit ot nodding and swaying his head In time
to his music, but Bob wants to put
a stop to this. He says the habit
haa Its good points—lt shows that
Tom has an abundance of pep—but
Bob Is frightened that some night
tn the middle of a particularly jazzy
number, Tom's head will fall off and
the orchestra will be "out of luck"

FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 26, 1926.
TltEN AND NOW Once upon a time a man
who is now trotting his
granddaughter on his knee had a girl. In those
days the mothers crooned their babies tb sleep,
now they lay them down on the couch and let the
radio do the work, generally to the syncopated
strains of a jazz orchestra.
When grandpa was a young man he had a
nice clean buggy and a pretty, high-stepping
horse. All the girls were glad to go riding
with him on Sunday afternoon. Now the girls
don't fancy riding behind a horse, they even turn
up their noses at a Ford. A high-powered
Chummy Roadster is the most popular vehicle
today.
In grandfather's time two seats at the opry
house cost one dollar. Tonight, if you take a
girl to a show you cough up $3.50 per seat. And
in those days a dish of ice cream at the village
ice cream parlor was a rare treat. Now to be
a regular fellow you have to take her to a cabaret for a midnight supper and that sets you
back another five spot. And dancing—why the
old time barn dance would be about like a walk
in the cemetery. After the barn dance they
went home in the buggy with rosy cheeks and
tingling veins; now, after an evening at the
dansant, some of these so-called Charleston
dancers go home in an ambulance with a bloody
hose and a leg kicked off. We are glad we
passed our youth in the good old days.
and the foot fellows Were in the way at the time.
But why must three men be roasted alive beneath a flaming caboose while thousands bathe
in the sea at Southern pleasure resorts and other
thousands dine in exclusive hotels? What is
the philosophy of life that accounts for the unequal dealing of the cards by Fate? To us it
seems that the philosophy of life lies in gratitude
for that which we have. Stop reaching for the
things that belong to the other fellow. Take
that which is given to you and make the most
of it. If you have health do not be envious
for anything beyond health. Get what you can,
honestly, that will bring comfort to your family, but do not permit yourself to be driven by
vain ambition. When you lie down at night
think of the crowded wards in the hospitals; of
the restless in the prisons; think of those who
are burdened by debt, disease and hidden crime.
Be grateful for what you have, and sleep in peace.

BE SATISFIED On St. Valentine's Day three
men were burned to death
beneath a wrecked caboose on a railroad in Pennsylvania. Can you picture a more horrible
death? Can you imagine greater anguish than
to be pinned under a burning railroad car awaiting the creeping flames to end your torture?
What must have been the thoughts of those
helpless sufferers in that awful experience. Yet
the flames crept on and in a short time put an
end to their pain and brought relief in death.
Today the train rolls over the spot and the charred bodies have been laid to rest in the bosom
of Mother Earth. Why were those men born
to meet such an end? They were not responsible for the fate that overtook them. Nothing
they did in life justified their end. Who can
account for the unequal experiences meted out
to   mankind?    An   accident  happened.     Yes,
CHARACTER AS There is one thing that the!
COLLATERAL boys of today should learn,;
and that is that character
will be their their collateral when they go to the
bank, or any other place, to borrow the money
to get their start in life. The boys of a gener-
| ation ago had this drilled into them at home antl
at school, but the older'folk seem to be neglecting this instruction for the boys of today. They
will not realize it unless someone teaches it to
them, and it is a priceless thing to know.
Let any youth go to the bank to borrow money to go into business, and if he has a poolroom
character he will never get farther than the
cashier's window. If he has standing in the
community he will get careful consideration and
will probably be asked to secure an endorser for
his note. Then character becomes the collateral which will secure him the loan, for with a
good character he can usually find some man in
the community who will go on his paper.
Without character, a reputation for square
dealing, industry and thrift, any young man is
going to have a hard time getting started in the
race of life. He will be left at the pole as sure
as the sun rises. He will never get anywhere
and he will growl all his life about unfair advantages. This character, which is so necessary, as collateral, is easily obtained. It is not
a sole possession of the rich man's son. The
poorest boy in town can build it and profit by it.
The rules are simple. Be honest, truthful, economical, prompt and ihdustrious. These live
principles will build you a character that will
put you out in front when the race starts and
help you to finish first under the wire when the
race ends. Five little investments that even
the poorest boy can make that will pay him wonderful returns. Paste this in your hat, lad.
Live it and some day you will say "that fellow
gave me the greatest tip I ever had."

Cumberland United is billed to
meet Nanaimo on Saturday, March 6
in the final for the Brackman-Ker
Cup, and a keen, exciting game is
anticipated. The local team are due
for a win, and whilst none of the play
ers are predicting a victory, they are
one and all, determined to give of
their best. Jack Monoghan, the popular captain is in high hopes however
tbat his team will be able to spell
"finis" to captain McFarlane and his
team, so far as the Brackman-Ker Is
concerned. Cumberland won over
the Nanaimo team three weeks ago
by a score of four goala to two, and
at a time when the Hub city placed
their strongest possible eleven In the
fleld. It will be a hard, ding-dong
battle on the 6th of March, and given
a good referee, there is no reason why
this game should not be llie best seen
at Nanaimo In a long timo. Now nil
together boys, "Blue and White's tlie

MAY ESTABLISH
PICTURE INDUSTRY
ON VANCOUVER KS'D.
News ot important developments ln
the moving picture industry was announced by Ray S. Peck, director of
the Canadian Government' Motion
Picture Studio at Ottawa, Ontario,
following his return to the Canadian
Capital on January 29 nfter important conferences with British and
American film men in Now  York.
Mr. Peck stated that he had lirst
hand information that the British
Government would probably establish a quota s.,stem for the British
Isles starting January 1st, 1927, the
British quota to start with 10 per
cent nnd to Increase from time to
time afterwards. The legislative requirements would also provide that
75 per cent of the capital Investment
in a picture must be of British origin
and that 75 por cent of the cast also
would have to he British.
The Canadian Government olllcial
declared that the International Iiiui
situation was fraught with big possibilities for Canada. He stated that
he had conferred with the representatives of a large British Company
while In New York when he had
learned thnt this company, which Is
backed by an Important and wealthy
commercial enterprise having huge
, investments In Canada, had undertaken to establish a moving picture
studio on Vancouver Island, lu thc
vicinity of Victoria, B. C, for the
making of pictures to qualify under
the British requirements. Vancouver
Island had been selected because of
favorable climatic conditions and because of the relative proximity to
•Hollywood where hundreds of British
and Canadian-born screen players of
experience were available.
Mr. Peck announced that over 50
per cent of the financing required for
the Canadian project had heen provided for und that the remainder
would be secured with comparative
ease because of the prospect of a
protected market In the United Kingdom. This would not be a stock-
selling proposition, he asserted, and
lt would be financed on the basis of
BO per cent from the United Kingdom and the remainder from tho
United States. Mr. Peck also learned
that Australia was also considering
certain restrictions against all but
British Empire-made pictures.
"It Is for these reasons that Canada
looms up on the International dim
horizon as a probable producing
country for British films," declared
Mr. Peck. "If the British film Industry becomes (irmly established
and If the British producers ilesire to
capture a good share of the Canadian
market, they will doubtless undertake
to do a great deal of production work
in the Dominion where scenic possibilities arc Immense.

ROD AND GUN IN CANADA
A handsome special section containing thc winning photographs of
the amateur photo contest recently
conducted by Rod and Gun is an interesting feature of the March Issue
of the magazine, which hae Just been
published.
The cover design of the March issue
is also of great interest. It is a very
fine color reproduction of a remarkable photograph of two bull moose
lying with their antlers Interlocked,
having fought to the death. The contents of the magazine for March are
of equally Interesting nature for the
sportsmen.
The month's stories include a very
live article by George H. Charts who
recites an entertaining narrative of
A Tenderfoot Hunt In the Wilds of
British Columbia, as well as other
hunting and fishing narrative.
The regular monthly features are
good and Raymond Thompson continues his series In the Big Woods of
Canada with the Fox Family, while
A. Bryan Williams has another good
chapter of the serlos Breezes from

I Isle of Britain ae worn at the Royal
National Eisteddfod and other Important Welsh celebrations and gatherings. No lecture on Wales would
be complete, said Mr. Davies, without a prominent place being given to
Its patron saint—Saint David. Long
years ago, probably in the Sixth Century, he was born In Pembrokeshire,
South Wales, and became Bishop of
Caerlcon-on-Usk and St. David's. He
travelled through Wales encroaching
and working miracles, and also visited Jerusalem. He founded numerous
churches throughout South Wales, of
which 53 still recall hia name. With
tho passing of time the saint's fame
increased, and his shrine at Saint
David's became a notable place for
pilgrimage," so that by the time of
tlio Norman Conquest his Importance
and sanctity were fully recognized
nnd he was formally canonized. It
was ln Pembrokeshire he spent a
life of usefulness. There he fulfilled
his splendid mission. There he in
structed thc people In the high min
Istrlcs of life, and gave birth to the
national soul of Wales. Let them
unite and form one brotherhood that
would assert a kinship of spirit with
tbat of Snlnt David by aspiring ever
aftor those Ideals that made his life
what It #as—a power for good and
n perpetual Inspiration to people the
world over."

it with the part he is alleged to have
pla/ed against Pelaglanism, whicli is
not Impossible One of his sayings
handed down to us Is worthy of being transcribed here: "The best habit
is rectitude."
The death of St. David Is placed
by some writers as early as 544 A.D..
whilst In the Annates Cambria*] (of
the nuthorlty of which the editors of
the Monumenta Hlstorlca Brltannlca
speak well) It stands at 601 A.D.. and
an anonymous Interpolator of Florence of Worcester assigns It to 607
A.D.
The clipping from a South Wales
paper (the Freo Press of Monmouthshire) which Mr. Davies sent along
with his letter, deals with St. David
as follows:

ASK FOR CHARLIE DALTON
She is Buch a love, .and has only
been married since last Morch, and
when she was met and questioned by
her mother's dearest friend, one day
last week,  Blie replied beamingly:
"Am I happy? Happy as the day
is long. I never knew there was such
joy In life until I got my Jack. In
fact," she added, lowering hor voice,
"my cup of happiness Is full, and I
expect It to overflow this Christmas."
Silllcus: "All a woman thinks of
Is clothes." |
Cynlcus: "Yes, she no sooner gets j
a wedding-gown off her mind than
she begins lo plan her divorce suit."
A teacher was reading to her class,
when she came across the word "unaware." She asked if anyone knew
the meaning. One little girl timidly
raised her hand and gave the following definition: "Unaware Is what you
put on Ilrst and take off last."
"So you deceived your husband,"
said the Judge gravely.
"On the contrary, my lord," urged
the fair respondent, "he deceived me.
He said he was going out of town,
and he didn't go."
Two boys halted before a brass j
plate fixed on the front of a house.
On It waB Inscribed In bold letters
the word, "Chiropodist."
"Chlrrupodist!" remarked one of
them.   "What's that?"
"Why," replied his companion, "a
chlrrupodist Is a chap who teaches
canaries to whistle.

NOTARY PUBLIC
CUMBERLAND - - - B.C. I
A few remarks dealing with the
many advantages to he gained by the
use of Certified Seed Potatoes may
be of Interest at this time of the Year.
We are all doing a Uttle planning
these dayB. Just whot are we going
to put In this fleld? At some period
of our soliloquising the very Important spud gives us food for thought.
What acreage are we going to assign
t ospuds and just what variety do we
prefer and what are we going to do
about seed? We are not going to
bo told by anyone what acreage shall
go in spuds and we are satisfied we
know ourselves as to the variety best
suited to our soil, hut unless we have
given a great deal of thought and
study to the question of seed "wo aro
ope to listen at least to any reasonable suggestion.
By the way. why are we considering the question of seed after tiie
otlier matters such as acreage, and
variety etc., have been thought out?
Why not let us look at the seed end
of It first? Well, we say we have a
portion of our crop on hand nnd we
enn use just as much of that for seed
as we liko, so that ends it. But hold
on!   Does It?
A Dairyman today wants to know
a good deal about the Btock he contemplates buying. He wants some
kind of a Pedigree of this stock.
What record It has If mature In the
way of production. He regards this
as essential. The poultryman Insists
on the very fullest Information as to
the new birds he ls introducing
amongst his flock. This is thc most
important part of his business. He
nlms'at high production.
lt wns not always bo. Years ago
In B. C. we were satiBfled with much
less—It was a case of necessity.
There were few proven animals and
still fewer birds with any record of
production, so that we made use of
anything that took the shape of a
cow or a chicken. The same with
potatoes. We had a few left over
from last year and we used them as
seed. A spud was a spud to most
of us. As the situation has changed
with regard to stock and poultry so
has It changed with regard to potatoes. The grower who wishes to improve his crop must be Just as par-
tlcular about his seed as the Dairyman is about his stock or the Poultry
man about hlB birds. With proven
stock, proven birds and with proven
potatoes we ure at least starting
with the right foundation.
It Is not the Intention in these few
notes lo doal with the regulations as
to  growing  Certified  Seed   Potatoes.
Suffice It to say that a Certilied Seed
Grower must, lirst start with Certified
Seed.     His  crop  Is  Inspected  twice
during  the   growing  season • with   a

potulo might have but which cannot

let us forget that some of the worst
dlscuKes such us Mosaic which may
cut down the yield 50 per cent, can
never be seen Iii the tuber but only
In the plant.   Then at digging time
a turther Inspection is made of the
tubers and still a  further  tuber Inspection   Is  made  In  the  Spring.   It
can  be taken  for granted  therefore
that when this seed Ih shipped In the

WHEN THE MAJOR
MET OUR JOHNNY
The following short notes were
written by one of the members of the
Cumberland Basketball team that
paid a visit to Port Alberni Saturday last, and which, by tlie way, managed to beat their West Coast opponents by the score of 20 to 13.
Certainly the Alberni and tiie Port
Alberni folks show visiting sporting
teams a good time. They did to the
Cumberland Senior Men's Basketball
team that Journeyed to Alberni last
Saturday. After thc gamo Bill Red-
ford (the Redfords are pioneers In
basketball sport In thai country),
elected himself host and showed us
around both the "Old" nnd "New"
towns.
We strolled Into a restaraunt In
the "Port" as Port Alberni Is com-
moly called. Major R. J. Burde and
his party were Bested al a table and
as we proceeded to conflacote the adjacent one, recognised us and queried
Who won?"
"We did," someone less modest
than the others replied.
"Haven't you got a band In Cumberland?" the Major asked.
"You bet we have," one of us fired
back, "and we've nlso got tho Cumberland  Islander over there!"
Then after we had been seated the
genial Mayor of Port Alberni, along
with one of his party, were Introduced
to us. But John Stevenson, In his
excitement, got confused and mixed
the Major with his friend. Anyway
John, who Is IntereBted in the lumber business beamed a smile of satisfaction at Major Burde and said:
"Oh, you're the sawyer In the mill
here.   How many feet do you cut In
shift?"
The Major laughed heartily, voiced
the hope that we would be able to
mako more frequent visits when the

Interesting Address
By Mrs. J. Hood
The last meeting of Ihe Parent-
Teachers Association was the occasion of an Interesting address hy Mrs.
Jas. Hood on opportunities for girls
to earn their own living. The main
part of her address dealt with the
advantage to girls of a University
or Normal School training and while
this perhaps is not possible for a
grout number of girls today, yet lt
was mode apparent that it ls extremely advantageous that those who possibly could receive this higher education should avail themselves ot it
as It opened the door to so many
lucrative and interesting occupations.
Among these were mentioned those of
Teaching, Physical training instructor, nurse, librarian, dietician. These
arc oil occupations which lend dignity to those engaged in them and
offer opportunities for advancement.
What makes it difficult for Cumberland girls to receive special training for posts requiring skilled workers is thc fact that they must leave
home to get It and this involves the
consideration ot both expense and of
sentiment. However, there the matter stands—those who would have the
prize must pay the price.
For a small sum girls can receive
a training to nil a stenographic or
bookkeeping position, and this will
give them a good start toward a res
ponsible post in the commercial
world.
The greot advantage of training is
the status ot independence lt bestow*
and the formation of positive and of
correct habits of thought, in that the
recipient of n course of special training wns given a goal toward which
to work and adjusted his or her conduct und alms In order to gain that
goal.
The' speaker went to great length
to detail the special courses of training open in various Universities and
colleges so that any of the parents
who contemplated giving their girls
any particular line ot training might
be informed of the steps they must
take.
Alter the address the meting was
opened for discussion. It was drawn
to the attention of the meeting that
very few probationers had been taken
into the Cumberland General Hospital
of recent years. It was moved and
seconded thai the Hospital Board be
approached dnd asked if they could
receive one or two probationers.
After the business the social committee served refreshments, the meeting breaking up soon afterwards.
