Ing the resolution that religion should
not be part of the school curriculum,
he stated that the only religious

remarked that the new method of
teaching taught the pupils ,to think

thom the habit of associating their
models, maps and knowledge with tlle
teaching of numbers of facts, but
learning of their relations with humanity. At tlie close of his adtlress,
Inspector Stewart made a few remarks comparing the old and new
methods of teaching, and said that
although the new method was excellent, he believed that the students
should know fuels on which to base
their  reasoning.

The Cumberland Islander
FRIDAY,  NOVEMBER  11th,  1927
WE heard of a chap the other day who haa hit
upon a novel way of facing trouble. In
the old days, and even now, some men
were accustomed to drown their sorrows in vari
ous ways, never realizing that most sorrows are
excellent swimmers. This man who has the novel
system of pepping himself up when trouble camps
on his trail simply buys himself a new hat instead of drinking bootleg liquor. He says he can
get more of an inspirational kick out of a new
hat than out of a quart of moonshine. Every
time trouble canters into view on his horizon, he
hies him to the hat store. Not a bad idea by any
means, for there is something invigorating about
a new hat always.
If you want to go on a genuine spree and drive
dull care away you might also buy a new pair of
shoes. With a new hat and new shoes any man
has the same exhilarating tingle that he used to
get from a ginger ale high-ball The expense,
under present high prices, is about the same for
a jag as it is for a hat and the advantage lies in
that you still have the hat the next day. Just to
show the general trend and frequency of troublesome events in the man's life who told us of this
scheme he now has two hundred and thirty-nine
THE reading of good books in this busy day
seems to be a lost art. There is so much of
trash in the newspapers and magazines, so
much of slush in the movies, so much downright
rot on the stage, that it is no wonder the younger
generation is befuddled and misled.
Milton said, "As good almost kill a man as a
good book," and yet the mass of decadent literature vomited from the printing presses of today
have literally smothered to death thousands of
good books that stand idle on the shelves of our
Among the great flood of books today, men,
public libraries,
especially young men, must choose with care.
If they saturate their minds with idle, worthless
books, the better books are lost to them; and
every good book has a lesson, a chapter from life.
Good books are introductions to the minds of
the greatest men. Association with greater minds
raises our own through contact, as a needle becomes magnetized by rubbing it against a steel
magnet. It is not a mere absorption of print, a
great amount of reading, it is what you read and
what you get out of it.
The intellectual system of most of us nowadays
needs a little renovation and cleaning. Start in
now with a good book. It may teach you to appreciate things in other places and other people
that you never noticed before.
The long winter evenings lie just ahead. Devote
less of those evening hours to the newspapers and
magazmes and take up a serious course in reading.
You will be surprized to find how quickly your
mind will glide into a taste for better reading and
how much of the real true beauty of literatuee
you have missed while wasting your time on trash.

IN the New York Tribune, dated March 21,
1905, there appeared this item: "We noticed quite a few automobiles on Fifth Ave.
yesterday.   Looks as though these contraptions were here to stay, but we doubt whether
they will ever become generally popular."
This is what they thought twenty-two years
ago, and now the problem is to find a place to
park one of these "contraptions" while you do
your errands. Who can say what is ahead when
you look at the marvellous developments of the

lights of a thousand air cars sailing through the
deep, blue glorious heavens at night, on their
way to the pleasure places or on travel bent. It
will not do to scoff at progress or the strides being made by scientific inventions. If the whole
attitude of life has been changed in the past twenty-five years, who can dare to prophesy what will
happen in the next twenty-five years ? Wonderful
achievements lie ahead. An automobile and a
radio set have opened up new vistas of life to
millions who moved in narrow and circumscribed
grooves a few years ago. Get interested in these
things, stretch your mental and physical wings
and fly out into this wonderful world all about
self to the progress being made on all sides. En-
you. Be alive to what is going on. Arouse your
joy yourself while you can and take advantage of
the opportunities afforded you to see your country, to enjoy music, to commune with the stars.
When the grave worms begin to finish your flesh
it will be too late, you will be dead.

rphe market growth of ocean trade between Great
* Britain and Canada via the St. Lawrence route
has prompted the Canadian Pacific, in their building
estimates for 1927-28, to augment their fleet of
freight eteamers with five modern twin-screw cargo
vessels. The new ships will be of the "Beaver" class
■nd will represent the highest type of express steamer
to be used in maintaining a weekly service from London and continental ports, working strictly to schedule
and ensuring definite arrival dates.
Three of these steamers have been launched, the
"Beaverburn" on September 27, at Dumbarton, Scotland, and the "Beaverdale" the following day at New-
castlc-on-Tyne, England, and the "Beaverford" on
October 27. Launching of the remaining two ships
was scheduled to take place shortly afterwards.
These five vessels constitute five of the ten ships
under construction for the Canadian Pacific, the
others being four 20,UU0-ton ocean passenger steamers
of the "Duchess" class and the tenth the "Princess
Elaine," to be placed in the Pacific Coast service of
the Company. The ten ships will comprise a total
gross tonnage of 135.000 tons and will cost approximately $25,000,000.
The new freighters will be operated out of Montreal, in summer, and Saint John, in winter, to London
and Continental ports on a weekly service. Their
■peed will be 14 knots, maintained in all weathers,
and the voyage should be made in 3V4 days. Normally
the steamers will carry u deadweight of about 10,500
tons or u draft of 27 ft. but should the need arise,
aa much as 13,000 tons may be carried on the maximum load draft.
The principal dimensions are:  Length or wator-
line, 512 ft,, moulded beam, Gl ft. 6 Ins., depth to
upper deck, 40 ft. 6 Ins., and gross tonnage, about
By means of the "Beaverburn," "Beaverdale" and
sister ships, the speediest shipping of Canadian fruits
and perishable farm produce, will be effected. Fruit
picked in Ontario can be placed on the London breakfast table in 11 days or 13 days later in the case
of fruit and vegetables from the British Columbia
areas. Tho same rapidity of shipment will apply to
cheese, ham, bacon and lard; to cereals, lumber, timber and manufactured articles. Modern refrigerating plants are required for ideal transportation of
fruit and perishable produce, nnd such planta are a
feature of the new cargo steamers.
They will give the Canadian shipper a highly effi
cient, economic service, rapid loading and unloading,
cold storage, floating suction and elevator plant for
grain, and—the biggest market in the world. Greater

the opportunities now afforded by the Canadian

buildings which  are themselves hls-

I those  who have   in    years gone by
j sacrificed tlieir lives for causes slm-
| ilar to those of the great war, when
j the thousands who at the time bitter-
I ly thought "It isn't worth while," but
whom we could tell that,.their effort
was worth all they underwent.
He spoke of the time when years
hence the Inhabitants of the world
would say to those who founght in
the greal war: "Your effort was
worth all." The Canadian children
should, he thought be taught more
Canadian history; more about the
great men who founded and saved
Canada anil made their country possible, just as the Irish, Scotch, Welsh
and English children know all about
their native heroes. His trip abroad
had been a wonderful lesson In fortitude and courage.
A wedding of considerable Interest
to Cumberland residents took place
at 7;,1n p.m., on Friday last at the
home of Mr. and Mrs, Charles Marsh,
Nanaimo, the contracting parties being Agnes Hoffelnz, second daughter
of the late Mr. and Mrs. Hoffeiuz of
Cumberland, and John Whlttaker
Marsh, eldest son of Mr. and Mrs.
Charles .Marsh. The bride was given
away by Mr. Clifford Cusworth. and
was attended by the sister of the
groom. Georgina (Ooddie) Marsh. The
groom was supported by his cousin,
John Murdoch, tlle Itev. Hugh Nixon
performing the ceremony.
The home was beautifully decorated
for the occasion with a profusion of
red, white and blue, a decorated arch
of hells and old lace trimmings adding a unique touch to tlle occasion.
The bride wore a white taffeta dress
trimmed with silver lace, with regulation veil and orange blossoms to
match, The bridesmaid wore a beautiful yellow creation of georgette and
lmnd-madc flowers, Imported from
New York.
After the ceremony a sumptuous
supper was served, under the able
supervision of Mesdames Wright,
Toombs and Cusforth, cousins of the
groom; Rev. H. Nixon giving the
toast of the evening and the groom
making a very suitable reply. After
much gratuitous advice from their
elders, games, singing and dancing,
the happy couple left to board the
boat for Vancouver, accompanied by
the best wishes of thc large circle of
friends anil relatives present. The
couple were escorted to the boat by
the iN'anaimo Jazz Band. After a short
honeymoon trip the young couple will
take up their residence in  Fairvlew.
Warning that the Ford Motor Company of Canada, Limited, Is in no way
associated with and does not countenance a campaign by a United States
house to sell "bankers' shares" secured by capital stock of Ford of Canada,
has been issued by W. It. Campbell,
Vice-President and Treasurer of the
Ford Motor Company of Canada, In
response to numerous requests from
Canadian  investors for information.
The literature circulated by this
stock-selling company. Mr. Campbell
said, may lead unwary Investors to
suppose that they are buying the capital stock of Ford of Canada. Actually
they are offered "bankers' shares,'*
one hundred of which are presumed to
be Issued againsl each share of Ford
stock deposited by the issuers with a
trust company. As these shares are
sold at $10 each und the present market for Ford stock Is ln the neighborhood of $585,110, the "bankers' shares"
are being sold at considerably more
than the corresponding stock market
value of Ford shares.
Asked If the Ford Motor Company
of Canada can do nothing to stop this
stock selling campaign In Canada, Mr.
Campbell stated that two years ago,
when another organization began similar activities, his company was successful in securing a temporary restraining order from the New York
State attorney-general. The rasult
wns that the company Immediately
suspended and wns quickly replaced
by another company. Concerns of
this nature can bc so quickly organized and require so little capital that
it would be Impossible to keep pace
with them through the Issuance of
restraining orders.
Data relating to Ford of Canada's
growth and activities is used in i
prospectus sent out by the American
stock-selling organization. This Information, Mr. Campbell statod, is
used entirely without authority and
the Ford Motor Company qf Canada
emphatically recommends against the
purchase of these fractional shares.

Mining Men Of
District Discussed
Coal Situation
For the past few years Mr. J. H.
Good, past president of the local
Board of Trade, has been urging on
the members of the Board the possibilities of by-products of coal. This
question, was brought very forcibly
to locnl citizens yesterday by a special Invitation given by theHotary
Club tn Mr. Harry Freeman of the
Chamber of Mines, Vnncnuver, who
brought with him Mr. Baker, associate of General Sutton. At the meeting
yesterday, which wns attended by rep-
resontatlvos of all tiie surrounding
mines, great str«Rn was placed on the
Importance of this new process for
gelling Uie by-products ot coal. So
interested were the mine owners that
the working model of this plant wiil
be here a fed days and lt is predicted that Xanainio will have the
Ilrst by-product plant III Canada,
In connection with this process the
following Interesting article appeared
in yesterdays issue of the Vancouver
Coal Research
It is announced from Baltimore
that a new method of firing steamship
boilers with pulverized coal haa been
perfected iu the plant of the Maryland Drydock Company ut Curtis Bay
and that this new method has shown
such advantages, both engineering
and economical, that It may revolutionize tlie future firing of all types
of power units.
The new mechanism can be operated at less than a third the coat required by the Diesel Engine and at
onc-hnif the cost of oil, it is asserted
by the officials of the United States
Shipping  Board.
With the exception of Canada, nearly every section of the civilized world
is going into the coal research and
making something out of It. The big
industrial plants of the United States
and Kurope are turning out hundreds
of i-onl by-products and marketing
them at huge profits. In Germany.
France and Switzerland, experiments
looking towards the utilization ot
both powdered coal and coal by-products are being carried out continually.
Coal is recognized today, not as a
raw fuel, but aa a raw product for
profitable manufacture.
And yet the official status of coal
in British Columbia, rich In coal deposits that have hardly been scratched
Is merely that of an Indifferent fuel
whose maximum value can be realized
in the hopper of a furnace.
The business of raising the status
of coal In this province is the business
of the provincial government. It ls
the government's business to see that
one of our richest natural resources Is
made to yield maximum profits to
whom those natural resources belon.
Heports such as those trom Germany and us this present one trom
Baltimore, indicate, the wealth-producing potentialities of coal. Coal research, sponsored by the provincial
government should be uncovering
those potentialities for the use of
British Columbia people whose heritage these coal deposits are.

With the Badminton season here
only one month old, the game has
grown In popularity to an astonishing extent, and already it ls beginning
to be doubtad if all the clubs ln the
district will be able to accommodate
those who wish to play. There are
seven clubs ln the district, making
ln all • total of eleven courts, five
ot which are housed tn the Imperial
Pavilion at Royston. Comox has one
court, Headquarters has one, Cumberland has four clubs with one court
each, while Courtenay players make
use of the big pavilion at Royston.
It ls estimated that the Pavilion with
Its five courts can handle eighty players, and the membership now Ib close
approaching this figure.
Nanaimo now baa taken up Badminton, thinks to the efforts of Mr.
Max Blunt, who Is now located there.
Mr. Blunt wm last year's president
I and Is himself an excellent player.
I Arrangements »re now going forward
| for a match between Nanaimo and the
i Imperial Club, probably next Satur-
I day . Nanaimo has promised to come
j here for the first match and tbe local
team will give them » return match
later In the season. It Is expected
also to play against Parksvllle and
possibly Duncan this season, and It
possible several ot the provincial
stars from Vancouver will be brought
over to play an exhibition game In

Club Formed
Want Monnt Albert Edward Aren
Made National Park
The Courtenay-Comox Mountaineering Club came into being at a
meeting In the City Hall on Friday
night. This action was the culmination of the interest displayed by a
number of citizens Intent on making
the beautiful hinterland of Courtenay
more accessible. One of the chief
objects of the organization at present
Is to have the area of which Mount
Albert Edward ay be said to be the
centre, taken over by tho Canadian
National Parks Association and to
preserve the natural conditions of
this huge area for the enjoyment ot
future generations.
In proposing Mr. C. S. Wood for
president of the club, Mr. William
Douglas said there was no one more
entitled to the position, as no one
had done more In discovering and
exploring this tableland; moreover,
It was Mr. Wood who found the
source of Browns River when others
had failed to do at).
In reply, Mr. Wood considered lt a
very great honor to be the Ilrst president of the club and warmly thanked
those present. Mr. Douglas was unanimously votfld vice-president. Dr.
F. H. Moore was appointed secretary-
treasurer and four directors were
nominated In the persons of Messrs.
J. W. McKenzie, W, A, B. Paul, O, 1).
Capes and Fred Duncan, who with the
other officers will form an eexcutlve
Mr. Theed Pearse, together with
the president, was asked to prepare
the constitution and by-laws setting
out the alms and objects of the club.
The advisability of becoming affiliated with the National Parks Association was discussed, and lt was thought
best to take this step. The Immediate
objects of the association will be to
construct a permanent cabin ln the
neighborhood of Quarts Creek Mountain, some ot the members signifying
their intention of making a trip In
on Monday (Thanksgiving Day), fo,'
the purpose ot deciding on the exact
location of this cabin, it tbe snow is
not already too deep. Letters are to
be addressed to Mr. M. B. Jackson,
chairman of the Game Conservation
Board, and to the National Parks
Association offering any assistance
possible in hastening the arrlvsl of
the band- of Big Horn Sheep whicli is
coming here from Banff for this area.
Stocking the many beautiful lakes
in this district with trout Is also
among the objects of the club.
Necessary qualifications for membership were discussed. Members
will probably have to qualify by at
least ascending to what is known as
the "First Lookout," a point some
3,000 feet above Courtenay, from
where a magnificent view of the Comox Valley and Gulf Islands Is obtainable.
Col. W. W. Foster, in recently discussing tbe area here, pointed out
the advantages and advisability of
getting this section designated by the
Dominion authorities as a game reserve.

All the pomp and clrsumstances of
an Old World Court are embodied ln
"The Climbers," the Warner Bros'
production starring Irene Rich, which
comes to the Ilo Ilo, Wednesday and
Thursday, and to the Gaiety next Monday and Tuesday.
During tbe reign of King Ferdinand
VII., the Court of Spain became guilty
of prodigal expenditure, clandestine
love, reckless gaiety and dark Intrigue. There It was that pitiless
social "climber" caused ihe banishment of the beautiful Duchess of
Irene Rich as the Duchess has an
opportunity to portray one of the
most colorful and romantic roles of
her career. She emerges from the
character of a, gentle-mannered woman qf high degree to the tempestuous and fiery-spirited "hell-cat" of
New Spain, a woman whose mind and
heart are embittered for all men.
Then Into her life comes a dashing,
light-hearted cavalier wbo lays siege
to her heart with a resistless and
charming persistence. Discovery that
she loves him also brings the revelation that he was the man who unwittingly caused her exile. Hate and
love are at war in her heart.
Paul L. stein directed and Tom
Gibson wrote the adaptation of thc
Clyde Fitch drama. The supporting
cast includes: Clyde Cook, Forrest
Stanley, Flobelle Fairbanks, Myrna
Loy, Anders Randolph, Rosemary
Cooper, Dot Farley, rfeotor Samo,
Joseph Striker, Max Barwln and
Martha Franklin.
"The Black Diamond Express"
Eulogizes the Railroad Man
Monte Blue, as Dan Foster, engineer, epitomizes all that is fine, strong
and loyal in the railroad man. His
pride is that he is always in on
schedule, thai he can put bread in'the
mouths of his widowed sister's children, that he Is lu good standing with
his employers and with the men of
thc Brotherhood.
Thnt the speeding car of a Joy
riding society girl should crash into
his train, causing the ilrst accident
identified with his name, Is a grief
to him, but this is forgotten in pity
for the girl. Pity turns easily Inlo
love, and hefore he knows It he Is
engaged to a girl whose mother comes
lo plead that she cannot stand poverty
The engineer's brother goes to the
dogs, and for the girls sake Foster
gives her up. When she marries the
rich man, Foster is the engineer on
the express that carries her prlvati
conch and bridal party. Bandits hold
up the train . One of them proves to
be Foster's brother. Terrific are the
adventures he goes through to keep
his honor clean.
lu the cast In support of Monte
Blue are: Edna Murphy, Myrtle Sted-
man, Claire McDowell, Carrol Nye,
William Demarest und J. W. Johnson.
Howard Bretherton directed. "The

Eases Job of Starting
It takes considerable burden away
from the starter if the clutch Is disengaged before the engine Is turned
over after it has stood for some time
in the cold. This operation relieves
the starter trom turning over the

permits considerable more snap in
the starting process. This is true
of all cars except the years best sell-
ing small car which, while having the
same type transmission as larger caft,;
should not be turned over with tlio
clutch disengaged, according to the |
Instruction book.

Re Notaries Public
The   following   communication   has
been  received  by the  Editor of The j
islander for publication:
Dear Sir.
Vou are of course aware that by
oue of the sections of the "Notaries j
Act," passed last session of the B.C. j
Legislature. Notaries of the province j
were given until t'hc "tli day of Sept. | '.
1927 in which to enrol. "'	
Unfortunately, quite a number failed <„«.„«.„
to  register    during    the    prescribed
period of six months; In the majority
of cases through  lack of knowledge
of the terms of the Act.
Corfield Motors, Ltd.
Service and Satisfaction
Phone 46 Courtenay
The government of this province I
will therefore he petitioned at the en-
BUlng session to introduce an amendment permitting those notaries who,
by inlsadverteiice, did not enrol, the
privilege of registering during a period of three months from the time any
such legislation Is passed. Such
petition Is in course of preparation
and will be presented to the government In the near future.
I was appointed a few weeks since,
by a gathering of ex-Notaries Public,
to act on their behalf with the object
of reinstatement, as aforementioned,
being obtained. It is most desirable
that, when this petition is presented,
the same shall contain the names of
all ex-Notaries who desire to he
placed nn the Rolls, as it Is quite obvious that this matter may not he
readily opened  thereafter.
I shall therefore appreciate due
I publicity being given tn this letter, so
that all the ex-Notaries on Vancouver
Island nr the adjacent Islands, who
have not already communicated with
me, will do so by the 15th day of
November, 1927, as the Petition to thc
government should he ready for signature by that date.
Yours faithfully,
