LET
OUT
A YELL
A woman broke down from the nev-
vous strain of the period and sent for
the doctor. He found his patient in
a state of nervous collapse. "Oh,
doctor," she cried, "I feel like screaming. I
think I shall go mad if I don't yell." The old
family physician got up and closed all the windows. He asked the others in the room to leave
and shut the door. Then he went over to the
couch and said: "Now scream your head off,
honey." The patient gave a couple of yelps and
then began to laugh while the dear old doctor held
her hand and laughed with her. The crisis was
over; the relaxation came and the overwrought
nerves were rested in a much-needed sleep that
soon followed.
We grown-ups are too prone to hold ourselves | term is ended.
Our little essay in a recent issue on
giving the wife an allowance has
BEAST caused some comment. A number
of wives have patted us on the back
and praised us for the stand taken, while a few
men have growled about our foolishness in writing such stuff. So this week we are going to
take a stand with the men and we expect a torrent of abuse from the ladies.
Recently a Southern judge heard a divorce
suit in which appeared one Thomas Farmer,
charged with deserting his wife. Testimony
showed the wife was a shrew; the husband a poltroon, because of her nagging, he ran away. In
passing on the case the judge said: "A man
should be the boss of his own household. I
doubt very much whether a woman entertains any
respect for a husband who will submit to her constant nagging and not resent it. She grows to
look upon him as a sort of molly-coddle, and the
woman never lived who could love a molly-coddle.
Some years ago a man named Christian John
son was sent to prison for bigamy. He had married seventeen wives and the list would have been
longer if the authorities hadn't stepped in and
put an end to his wooing and his wedding. Human nature doesn't change though, and probably
he will add a dozen or so more when his prison

the addresses of the liquor vendors'
stores where these can be had. While
the cards have the usual note at the
bottom thut this advertising Is not
done by the B.C. Government or the

mentioned on the cards until further

AN ESSAY ON THE COW
A schoolmaster in a little country
school ln England set his pupils the
task of writing an essay on cows.
One of Hie bright pupils solemly handed in the following, but it is suspected his bachelor uncle had assisted
in writing it:
"Cowes have an annual regatta,
yet the cows is not a nautical animal.
"The cow is a good mother, and
will look after her calf most lovingly. By the cow is the milk made. I
know this to be true, for I have seen
the mtlk-maid by tbe cow.
"Also there is an old song about
the cows entitled, 'For Heifer and
Heifer,'

able to play. But even then their
defensive work was most brilliant
Big Bill Boyd whiffed thirteen men
and behind him the boys pulled two
double plays. The one ln the tenth
inning with Hie bases loaded and one
out was brilliant. So was Bobby
Robertson's one-handed spear in the
riglit garden. Tucker too kicked in
ills weekly thrill when he scooped up
and made a one-handed assist on
Heft's grounder—the most sensational
pick-up we have witnessed in years.
Dave Hunden und Dave Richards, celebrating "twenty-tirst." were the shining lights for Cumberland.
I'lajed Perfect Ball
Powell River, too, put up a most
promising exhibition, Not one error
was charged against them in their
last league struggle. Deacon was
probably the pick of the team with
his valuable offensive and defensive
work.
In tlie third frame an unpleasant
Incident occurred when Moore, the
base umpire, elected to muke the call
on the play at third base witli thc run
tier on second and first base occupied.
The only error made was In Moore
not going to first and Bono to third
for thc possible play there. Such
are the sayings of the book—und they
are beyond question.

VICTORIA. Tho report of the Educational Survey is being primed and

Minister has stated that he will regard the report as suggestive rather
thnn mandatory and tho Education
Department Will introduce changes in
line with the report from timo to time
whoro those aro considered advisable
School financing was very thorough
ly discussed. The chief recommendation is that a tax of not less than
one per cent should be levied on all
incomes not uow taxed and be used
largely to reduce tho present school
tax on real property, it is recommended (hat there be a general school
levy on all property in the Province
whether within a school district or
not; that a larger share of the cost
of buildings he borne locally; that
Provincial grants be re-arranged on
a basis of ability and effort to pay
rather than on the number of teachers employed; that an intermediate
school o»* Junior high school be established that would permit pupils
to specialize along broad general
Hues that are fundamental to vocational, scientific or cultural program
of study; that manual training, domestic science and technical education ho continued and extended; that
by a system ol bonustng successful

cou raged to remain In country schools
The Commissioners oppose any suggestion that Boards of School Trustees should be committee of Municipal

In regafd to religous instruction

hesitate to recommend that the teaching of religion ho made a part of tho

The Commissioners oppose the Imposition of high school fees. They
recommend that where children from
rural districts without high school attend high schools in a municipality
tuition fees be paid by the government. The Commissioners give the
Department of Education credit for
the progress made in recent years in
modernizing the system. They praise

by tiie liolilny makers may sound a

be vouched for:

out by himself In a row boat operat-
tlng two salmon trolls. Before long
he hooked a nice llsh and nlmost ot

greedily seized by another flsh. Here
was a problem for any llsherm'nn—to
piny two salmon on different lines ol
one and the same time. After some
really exciting minutes, and when he
was almost desparlng of landing
either flab, he dexterously brought
number one salmon into his bonl. Almost simultaneously salmon number
two gave a mighty flip with his tail
which look hlm clear out of the water
and landed lilm right in the bottom
of the boat. Mr. Booth then rowed
to the shore to tell of his good luck.

COURTENAY, July 10.—The Comox
Valley has received its full share from
nature's bountiful storehouse during
the first half of the present year.
Everywhere throughout the whole dis
trict crops aie looking exceptionally
fine and agriculturists and others are
now reasonably assured of reaping ;i
good measure of prosperity from their
fields, plantations, and gardens this
season.
the "climatic conditions that prevail
in the northern part of Vancouver Island are, of course, very largely responsible for the state of abundance
which W now manifest over all Iho
countryside, and the farmer, as usual,
has done his share in the accepted order of things . The Comox Valley,
unlike the southern portion of Van-
ley, unlike the southern portion or
Vancouver Island usually enjoys some
good rains during the early part ot'
the summer. This year there was »
splendid precipitation during Juno,
in fact, according to Mr. Eric Duncan
the meteorological recorder at Sand
wick, over two and a half inches o(
rain fell in that month. This came
after a hot, dry spell had threatened
a partial crop failure, and was the
means of saving the berrymen from
disaster and turning their season Inln
one of satisfactory profil. It is true
that some of the hay was cut jusf bn-
fore the June rain fell, bul in m03t
cases the hay was in the hands of
experienced farmers who were taking

"OLD HOME
WEEK"
If you want to get a thrill that comes once in a lifetime, be on the sidelines when Tommy comes marching home!
Back to the old home town and the girl he left behind
him.     Back to the town that went back on him/,
"Old Home Week" is the same type of wholesome American story it's "Back Home and Broke." Based on a
story by America's leading humorist, George Ade, and
sccnarized by Tom Geraghty—the same combination
that gave you "Back Home and Broke" and other big
Meighan successes.
