one and have been playing excellent
ball lately. They will have their

Cumberland Team
Defeated By Port
Alberni Soccerites
Port Alberni threw a mild surprise
into the Cumberland Intermediate
soccer team last Sunday when they
defeated the local boys at the West
coast city to the tune ot three goals
to one, In what proved to be a fast
and hotly contested game with an
unusually large crowd of spectators
ln attendance. The local boys went
over with the Idea that "the Port"
knew little, or notbing, about soccer,
hut that was where the surprise came
In—they do, and proved lt.
The playing field somewhat confused the visitors as It Ib of a grassy
nature which makes It extremely hard
to dribble a ball. The Cumberland
wing men, "Dud" Gibson and. Tommy
Little who are both small of stature,
were rarely given opportunity to display their wares as they were half
hidden by the tall grass and consequently the Inside men sent out
few passes. The game started sharp
at 2:00 p.m. with Mr. Broad In charge
and he proved a capable referee, although he had a strong tendency to
Ignore the off-side rule. Two ot Port;
Alberni's goals were scored when the*
player was yards off-side. They tal-1
lied their third from a penalty given
by Jimmy Weir. Bickle slammed lu
Cumberland's lone counter after Hunden had hit the upright after a fine
solo run. The locals lined up as
follows: goal, M. Stewart; backs, H.
Stewart and W. Marshall; half-backs,
R. Strachan, A. Farmer and J .Weir;
forwards, H. Gibson, E. Bickle, D.
Hunden, J. Stevenson and T. Little.
Port Alberni has promised to return the compliment on Sunday, June
27th, and it Ib hoped that local spectators will turn out In as large numbers ae they did at "the Port."

FRIDAY, JUNE 11, 1926.
EDUCATION June is the month of the sweet
girl graduate, the time of high
school and college commencements. The term
commencement at the close of your school or
college career is well chosen for in reality your
education is just commencing. Cardinal Gibbons wisely said: "The best and most important
part of every man's education is that which he
gives himself."
As we grow older and learn in life's hard
school of experience we come more and more to
realize how little we knew when we left school
or college.
Lincoln, the self-educated man, said: "I will
study and prepare myself and some day my opportunity will come." What a practical view of
education.
Voluntary education is the thing to-day. The
young man or young woman that is so interested
in his own success that he will pay a reasonable
price for this modern and practical form of useful
education, will rise and remain there. Education never ends. The kindergarten, the Sunday
school, the primary grade, the intermediate
grades, high school, college, technical, liberal,
classical, religious, philosophy and on and on, for
education never ends.
When we educate our children we lay the
foundation for their success in life. When we
encourage the education of youth we offer them
a lamp to dispel the shadows of ignorance and
prejudice. When we older-grown continue to
study and to prepare ourselves, we profit by the
experience of Lincoln and prosper on the plan of
nearly every great man that has lived before us.
WHAT IS LIFE? Poets, sages, stoics and hermits have pondered on the
problem, "What is Life?" To attempt to consider this riddle in a newspaper paragraph or a
volume of 300 pages is equally hopeless. We
find life in the halls of learning and we find it in
a stagnant pool of dirty water.
One species of life runs to a high forehead
and large spectacles with tortoise-shell rims—
this species endeavors to find out from whence
it came and whether it is going. Anrther
species runs to receding chins and spindle legs,
used mostly for dancing the Charleston—this
species hasn't the least idea from whence it came
and doesn't give a damn.
THE CUMBERLAND ISLANDER, CUMBERLAND, B. C.
— 1 .        j    Jll   I, j"   ,  BB85
FRIDAY,  JUNE 11, 1920.
You may dream of Reincarnation and try to
convince some flapper that you recall the day
when you "were a king in Babylon antj she was
a  Christian  slave."     The chances are she will
powder her nose and say, "Huh? For in the
skull of the present-day flapper there is seldom
anybody home. You may read of a modern
couple who have the taint of Egyptian blood boiling in their bodies—but even that doesn't mean
a thing today, because the life of the present era
is more than soft silks, a whiff of perfume or
gazing into a crystal ball.
When a young man elects to fly high, or a
young woman decides to visit the gardens of the
lotus eaters the story always ends the same as
it did for the poor fool who peeped on Cleopatra
bathing, then traded the remainder of his life
for one night of love.
For the fortunate, life is short—for the unfortunate, life seems long.   '
The thought of Touchstone, in "As You Like
It," is but a cynic's measure of the meaning of
life. While Jacques' melancholy "to ripe and
ripe, then rot and rot," is a hopeless philosophy.
Longfellow, in his "Psalm of Life" tells us "Life
is real! Life is earnest!" Those who have
lived and suffered agree with the poet, only the
young and inexperienced look upon Life lightly.
But of all the estimates of Life, the best we have
heard was at a lecture the other evening, when
the speaker turned to a group of youths and said:
"Young people, you will find that Life is a cafeteria—you serve yourself." You couldn't sum
it up better in a whole column of a whole volume.
Life is a cafeteria, with all the tempting things
spread out before you, and you serve yourself.
FOOL'S HILL The wise fellows past forty can
tell you all about Fool's Hill,
but the smart little lads in the pin-feather period
won't listen to the warnings of those who have
climbed over the Hill.
Fool's Hill is the rough place in the center of
that meadow where the boys and girls sow their
wild oats. It is the place where a lot of fellows
try to turn night with its gift of sleep, into day,
and then get up and go to work trying to meet
the irritating cares with the same smile that the
other fellows wear who get a good sleep, lt
can't be done, even on Fool's Hill.
There are a lot of slippery places in that
meadow of wild oats, but hone of them is harder
to get over than Fool's Hill. A man can spread
his night sympathy and sentiment all over a
crooked side street, or a roadside dance hall, but
there's no good in feeling sorry for yourself the
next day, just because you feel bum. Getting
solid with the girls on Fool's Hill is liable to disturb your permanent job and delay your start
in life.

CHAPTER XI
"THE BICE KOOSTEB TEA BOOM"
KEN'S message at once aroused
his fellow scouts to action. Indeed the scout world especially
along the shores of Long Island
Sound, both in Long Island and in
Connecticut, was being mobilized for
action. And when you want action,
tlie place to go Is the Hoy Scouts.
It was not until later that we
learned but one place in whicli both
Craig and Ken were listened to with
mingled feelings of interest and of
anger was in tlie cabin of the Scooter
the operator called to the captain.
Cap'n," he whispered, "take this
earphone and listen. Thev are on to
us."
What!" The captain listened until Craig started to speak again.
That a good. Something is Interfering somehow. But I'm afraid the
damage has been done. They'll be
looking for this boat. We'd better
got the boy off as quickly as wc can
Let nie see. It's time for our hourly
communication with the racing car
In Its new hiding place. Isn't it?"
The operator nodded, lie started
to get ready to send. A few moments and he turned to the captain.
I have them. Now what instructions do you wish them lo have?"
"I'm changing the course of the
bont," tho captain began. "We are
putting In to the Binnacle Inn. I
want you fellows to get off right

boy Dick Gerard whom we are holding. We want to get Ken Adams.
But we can't hold him on the Scooter.
Start riglit away with tlie racer for
the Binnacle Inn. Meet us there and
we will transfer the boy to you. You
can hold him at the new den uiilil
this thing blows over."
In the new den with the splendid
field wireless outfit the radio thugs
were listening. '
"I would rather handle anything
but a Boy Scout," growled one. "Tliey
learn so much that It takes a good
deal lo fool them, even to hold them.
I'm afraid of them—1 really am!"
The otlier thug laughed, but there
was a seriousness In his laughter. To
a crook Dick was no asset; he was
a. liability.   He   was   too   niuch   for
them—then one considered the vast
army of boys organized behind hlm
to help him.
However there was nothing to do.
Tlie thugs with the now gray racer
had lo obey. A few hurried preparations and they were oil*. It wus o
deseprnte gang with tentacles that
readied over land and  sea and air.
The gray racer sped along lo the
Milium le lun.
Out on the Sound, there was one
boat that curried u couple, a man uud
his wife, idling around enjoying the
sea air aud rest. It was the Utile
cruiser that was hanging off In the
haze not so far from ihe Scooter as
it changed its course und started under orders fro nilhe captain to run
Into Binnacle Inn. They hud been
listening to a portable radio that sal
on the cabin roof and had happened
to catch the flrst part of Craig's alarm broadcasted from XVXZ.
"1 believe that is the boat tliey are
looking for, over there!" the man exclaimed. "It Is putting in to the Binnacle Inn. We must put In quickly
and telephone this club."
The owner of the little cruiser also
changed his course and headed In
where he saw a cove with a big house.
They would have a telephone and lie
figured that he could get Kennedy on
the wire and start him out immediately on what looked, now, like a promising lead.
While these things unknown to us
were going on, we were speeding along the concrete highway toward the
Nonowantuc Club.
We had shot past a dirt road whon

Ken,    always    keen-eyed,    suddenly
shouted above tho rush of air:
!    "Stop!    Uncle  Craig,   I   thing  that
is Vira's car un Unit dirt road!'
j    We stopped.
I "But, Ken, there was a sign and an
arrow on that road. I .saw. It read:
Blue Rooster Tea Room."
' "I can't help that. That was Vira's
car. I know it. I know the license
number."
f "We can't go up there.'' considered
Craig. "We'll got nowhere if I am
seen around, in fact any of us. Now,
I have au idea. I think you have the
making of a detective In you, Ken."
The hoy was flattered, but Kennedy's manner was far from making
a boy overconfident.
"Now," continued Kennedy, "we'll
go on to the Nonowantuc Club, will
drop you hero along the turnpike.
Then you gel back there to that Blue
Rooster place. I've heard it is a
pretty spotty place. Keep under
cover as long as you can. But get
u line on what's doing. Then report
to me."
"Very well, sir.'' Ken was a boy
of few wordfl. He dropped out of the
car aud aw we shot away In high
again the lust we saw of him was as
he cautiously made liis way hack along ilie turnpike and by a footpath
turned parallel to the dirt road to
the Blue Rooster's thai he could approach It from an unexpected side
and get an earful.   Craig was pleased.
The Blue Rooster was off the main
rond. That was precisely what the
proprietor wanted. He wanted quiet
for the select clientele of sports to
whom he catered.
; li must hnve been an hour or so
| before we passed unseen on the turn-
! pike that Vira and Glenn bad pulled
up to the place. There waB uo one
j there except the propreitor. The
■ business of the Bine Rooster was
J done in late afternoon anil evening.
When Vira and Glenn drove up the
proprietor was pleased. It was trade
j from just this section of Ohlfleld,
I Nonowantuc and Rock I edge, ho wanted.
J    He  was  not so  pleased,  Iiowever,
when    Vira    led    ibe    conversation
around  to  borrowing  money.   Glenn
and she were desperate for money to
j meet the losses with the bookmakers
; at   the   track   last   week.   They   had
j much to fear if the news ever leaked
'out to their parents.
j    "But, .Miss Gerard,  I  can't do that
. without  security."
| "Hero is security. Let me have a
j thousand on it."
| Vira drew out some jewels. They
, were the jewels, she told the proprietor when he asked, which she had
not worn the niglit before at the time
of the radio robbery. "Oh, I see."
He looked fixedly at her as if he suspected something. He looked at them
carefully. "All right. I will hold
theae here in my sate. Vou can have
the thousand. But that is all that I
can   spare."
Glenn looked at. Vira. A thousand
would not settle the debt. Still ft
would help.
It was at Ihis point as the proprietor Was putting the jewels in the
safe and handing over tlie thousand
dollars that Ken arrived and took a
position at a side window where he
could peer through without being
seen. His eyes almost popped out
as he saw the transaction.
Ken was just getting Hie affair
straight as he overheard tbe conversation In the office, when a car pulled
up in a hurry. In it were Rae and
Curtis dressed not as if for motoring
but for yachting. Rae and Jack
seemed curious. However, the borrowers gave them little satisfaction.
Rae and Cutris were frying another way to got Information to satisfy their curiosity when Rulh suddenly drove up and was cordlaaly greeted by Vira and Glenn.
"Did you got it?" Inquired Vira
anxiously.    "We  gol   sonic,"
"Ves. But I had to hock my soul!"
returned Ruth bitterly. "The next
time you people get Into trouble over
money, don't expect ni'- to get you
out. You have got to give it hack In
a month."
Rae and Curtis were a bit miffed
at not being taken into confidence.
They sauntered quickly over to the
window.
"Well, of all things!" Rae had
caught a shot of Ken as he bent down.
Curtis reached out and seized his
shoulder. There was nothing for
Iv n lo do bul lo come out into the
open now.
"Little boys shouldn't be so inquisitive!" Vira cried holly. " Now, Ken,
beat it and keep your mouth shut.
Wliat  do you say, Ruth?"
"Tho same.' Rutli was worried.
He might spill Iho beans to iheir
mother,
Ken had succeeded only partly. Ho
know ho must boat it and he made
the besl nf it.Dut be could not resist
a palling shot at  Vira.
"Dicii's boon kidnapped!"
Vira Boomed  stunned  a I   tiie  news.
Ken did noi wait hi answer another question, hm ran up the road.
As he came lo (he turnpike he bummed a  ride to the Nonowantuc Club.
Long before this wo bad reached
the Club, There wore many messages
from radio fans. One especially wa.n
Interesting, It was from an amateur
who sinned himself K0O3. "Vour
message was good aud clear. Hut
why did you sudenly sign off?"
Craig was perplexed. He know ho
had not signed off. That was something to look Into later. It looked
suspicious. Hid Ibis gang own iho
air Its woll as run the sea and land
to suit their purposes?
Ken  hurst In  on   us at  the  Club.
"They're borrowing money from
everybody ttiey can. Ruth has somo
from someone. Vfra put up some
jewels for a thousand."
We looked at each other. What did
It mean? Easton was particularly
put out hy the mention of Ruth by
Kon.    But he said  nothing.
A clerk from tho ollice approached.
"Here's a messago came in over the
telephone, sir. Scooter putting into
harbor west Baton's Light, beaded for
Binnacle Inn. The chap wouldn't
hold the wire nor give a  name."
Kennedy thought a moment, "That
Is west of Us. I'll take a chance.
Come along. Let's go over there to
Binnacle Inn. This may he jUBt Q
piece of good fortune."

GETS THREE YEARS
FOR APPROPRIATING
REGISTERED LETTER
Three years In the penitentiary
was the sentence meted out to Johnny Jamleson, an Indian resident of
the Comox Reserve, Wednesday by
Judge Barker, for having stolen a
registered letter. It appears from
the evidence given Wednesday that
Jamleson had known that a companion on the Reserve had written to a
man named Customs, in Prince Rupert, for forty dollars. The writer's
name was Andy Frank, and later, he
left Comox for work ln a logging
camp before his letter from Prince
Rupert had been answered. In the
meantime, the accused, after visiting
the post-office on several occasions,
found the registered letter awaiting
one Andy Frank. Representing himself as a brother of the addressee,
the prisoner signed for the letter as
"Isanc Frank," and received same,
which contained the forty dollars.
Witnesses were present at the trial
from Prince Rupert, and upon the
conclusion of the evidence, His Honor sentenced Jamleson to three yearB
with hard labor in the penitentiary.
attraction of that area shall be removed, lt would endanger the park
and impair Its value. No doubt there
are other tracts of commercial timber
which could be traded for this particular area.
The Important point to remember
about Vancouver Island's timber is
that at the present rate of cutting the
time ls not far distant when what is
now the beauty spot of the Pacific
Northwest will be largely a piece of
scarred landscape. For the moment,
of course, Strathcona Park to most
people is just a place on the map,
difficult to reach,  and of not much
started making It, and the result is
a mighty, authentic, human document
dealing with the havoc wrought, not
by war, aB one would gather from the
many war scenes In the picture, but
by a woman—a woman without a
soul.
The Btory is hot so much of the
[ war as it Is of the effect the war had
| on the world; the hysteria of all the
! peoples affected by the greatest conflict the world has ever seen. It
shows London, masking its sorrow
and   bitterness   beneath  an   exterior

STRATHCONA PARK
Although everybody must appreciate the difficulty of preserving timber which already has been alienated,
there is no question that every effort
should be made to preserve the magnificent stands in Strathcona Park.
This is a special case if only for the

to consider the question from that
standpoint would be to take no account of the future. The most Insistent point is that, as our agricultural
and industrial activities expand, the
day will come when Strathcona Park
will be one of the few remaining
preserves of the kind on the Island.
It should therefore be protected aB a

woman who brought havoc to innumerable lives—a Twentieth Century
combination of Salome, Cleopatra,
DuBarry, Delilah, Semiramis, Lucre-
tla Borgia and the other celebrated
sirens of history.
Once each season a motion picture
comes to town that stands head and
shoulders above all others. Our
guess Ib that "Havoc," the William
Fox supreme attraction showing at
the Ilo-Ilo Theater tonight and tomorrow, Is that picture for this year.
There are many reasons for this.
First of all lt will beatify the most
fastidious and cynical patron of the
silent drama, trom a standpoint ot
pure entertainment. Secondly; it is
a  faithful   reproduction   of  a  great
j International stage success, which
took London, Paris and New York
by  storm.   But  more  Important,  in
! our humble viewpoint, ls the fact
that Rowland V. Lee, whom William
Fox selected to direct this picture,
evidently was thoroughly familiar

On his morning stroll, Mr. Busybody encountered a laborer engaged
In digging a hole.
"How deep ls that hole?" inquired
Mr. Busybody.
"Take a guess," replied the workingman, who stood ln the hole. "My
height is exactly five feet and ten
Inches."
"How much deeper are you going?"
continued  Mr. Busybody.
"I am going twice as deep," rejoined the laborer, "and then my
head will be twice as far below the
ground as it now is above ground."
Mr. Busybody wants to know how
deep that hole will be when finished.

Here is a problem which I figured
out during a ride from Blxley to Qulx-
ley astride of a razor-hack mule. I
asked Don Pedro if my steed had an- •
other gait, and he said lt had hut It
waB much slower, so I pursued my
journey at a uniform speed. To encourage Don Pedro, who was the
chief propelling power, I said we
would pass through Pixley, so as to
get sonic liquid refreshments; and
from that moment he could think of
nothing but Pixley. After we had
been travelling for forty minutes I
asked how far we had gone and he
replied: "Just halt as far as it is to
Pixley.' After creeping along tor 7
miles more I asked: "How far ls it
to Qulxley?" and he replied as before: "Just half far as it Is to Pixley."
We arrived at Qulxley In another
hour, whicli induces me to ask you to
figure out tlie dlstnace from Blxley
to Qulxley.
Additional puzzles, as well as the
answers to the foregoing, will appear
