Ladysmith Plant
To Start Up Soon
SMELTER   IS   TO   BE   REFITTED
WITHOUT DELAY FOR
NEW PROCESS
Mount Sicker Ore, Whicli Was Formerly Penalised, Will Be
Used «t Once
Port Alberni To
Play Tennis Here
Against Locals
In the course of about two months,
lt ls anticipated that the ore separation works at Ladysmith will be ln
operation for taking care of products
of Coast mines which contain zinc or
lead, or both of them, ln conjunction
with other mineral contents.
For some time, Mr. Herbert Carmichael and Mr. H. B. Thomson, of
Victoria, associated with some other
investors, have been investigating the
process which is now to be put Into
use, and the bringing of the plant of
the Ladysmith smelter Into condition
to take care of the ore will be proceeded with without delay.
Mr. David McBride, who has had
experience with this line of work, arrived here a few weeks ago with Mr.
Carmichael, and will remain to take
charge of the plant at Ladysmith.
New machinery is being ordered,
and this will be put into use with the
equipment now on the ground In carrying out the plans of tbe new owners.
It is the intention to use gas. which
will be manufactured by the owners
on the ground.
Mount Sicker Ore to Be Used
The decision to start up the plant
at Ladysmith carries with it also the
announcement that the same owners
will utilize ore from Mount Sicker as
the basis of supply at the start. Work
ts now going on at Mount Sicker look
iug to the opening up of new ore
bodies tbere, and a tunnel is being
driven through the Lenora with the
ultimate design of tapping ore bodies
In the Tyee.
At present the tunnel is iu about
700 feet. At, that point water wss encountered which will require the installation of a pump. This delays the
work a little, but It is expected soon
to resume the driving of this main
tunnel.
Tyee Ore nn Hand
The Tyee, which in former years I
shipped a great amount of ore to the'
smelter, is one of the producers which j
the - present  process  is  adapted   to |
meet.   In conjunction with the cop- j
per contents of the Tyee there is considerable zinc.   Under the process of
smelting by the ordinary method lt
was Impossible to treat the ore when
it ran more than four per cent zinc.
The result was that when the
smelter shut down there was at the
Tyee 70,000 tons of ore In sight that
could not be treated at the smelter In
consequence of the fact that is carried
about nine per cent zinc. This will
at once be shipped to the Ladysmith
works when the new plant Is ready.
Before the plant is ready at Ladysmith it will be necessary to have
bunkers for the handling of ore which
may be received there. This matter
will be attended to without delay.
Will Meet Want
On the Pacific Coast In this Province and in Alaska, there Is a vast
amount of ore that contains zinc and
lead. In the past this class of ore
has been heavily penalized owing to
the fact that the ordinary smelter.wus
not able to separate the ore Into its
constituent parts without loss of one
or other of the constituents.
The new process of separation does
away with this situation, and the lead
and zinc can be separated from the
other metals and made available. In'
connection with the process there are
a number of by-products which may
be recovered and which will he of use'
in an Industrial way. adding to the
returns from the plant.
The opening up of the plant wiil, |
therefore, be a boon to the many!
owners of mining properties on the'
Coast who have in the past been
heavily penalized ln the treatment of
their ores or have hod to allow the
mines in many instances to remain *

Vegetable Growers

To Co-operate
JACK PERFORMS THE
HAT TRICK AGAINST
ONTARIO SOCCER CLUB
TIMMINS, -July 7.—Northern On-i
tarlo soccer fans were treated to an
exhibition of association football at
its best when the English team touring Canada easily defeated Timmlns
eleven by a score of 5 to 0, in the
presence of more than 2,000 spectators. Jack, Bolton Wanderer's famous forward, performed the hat trick
ln the second half of the game this
evening. I
COURTENAY, July 4.—The short
notice lecture for Vegetable and Fruit
growers held in the Agricultural Hall
here on Saturday evening, was attended by a representative gathering of
growers. At tbe request ot Mr. F.
McPherson, president of the Agricultural Association, the chair was taken
by Mr. H. P. Allfieiry. It was not
known until Friday that Mr. Robert
Murray, of Victoria, Dominion Fruit
and Vegetable inspector, would be
available to address the growers, although a request had been made some
months ago by the growers for a talk
on handling, bunching and ciutt-ig of
vegetables. Prior to the meeting the
executive of the produce men inspected the basement of the McPhee block
on Union Street with a view to utilizing same for central grading and
storing, and a favorable offer was
made by the owner of the premises.
* In opening his remarks, Mr. Murray
said that it was evident that the
growers here had got to a point where
they are going to co-operate. Cooperation, he could assure them,
would mean their future. The speaker showed the value of a central
grading and packing depot such as
the growers had in mind and explained how, under such conditions, the
growers around Victoria had been enabled to ship seven car-loads of green
vegetables to the prairies this season,
which they had not been able to do
before. Mr. Murray gave some very
valuable advice to the growers when
he detailed the best method ot bunching green vegetables and told the best
methods to adopt for marketing. He
emphasised the importance of maintaining a continuous supply of commodities kept up to a high standard
of quality. Tho necessity ot using
crates and not sacks for green vegetables was also pointed out. As Inspector he had noticed that the Comox growers produced a very excellent
potato of a high keeping quality, but
certain shipments of Comox potatoes
had been seriously depreciated on arriving at their destination by the tact
that the shipment had been made In
old sacks of an uneven capacity. The
advantage ot storing potatoes in bins
and crates was made clear and the
speaker thought that local growers
would be well advised, seeing the keep
ing quality of their potatoes, to hold
their "A" grade tor late shipment, at
thc same time explaining why prices
are low during the digging season.
In answer to a question how to
overcome excessive freight rates from
this point, the speaker thought the
growers would do well to keep a few
car loads stored ln Vancouver and
Victoria by using water transportation. During his discourse, which
was of an Informal nature, Mr. Murray was asked a good many questions
to all of which answers were given.
Other matters to be discussed were
the culture of logan berries and general marketing prospects.
At the close of the meeting a very
hearty vote of thanks was unanimously passed to the lecturer.

Tourists Shown
Beauties Of Comox
And Comox Lake
Yesterday afternoon the "Princess
Mary" called at Comox on her "round
Vancouver Island" trip. It was the
first cruise of the boat round Vancouver Island and the passengers
were given time to see the Comox
District. The boat had a full passenger list and over a hundred of the
tourists availed themselves of the
opportunity of seeing Comox. Cars
from Courtenay and Cumberland
were summoned by tbe Courtenay-
Comox Board of Trade, met the boat
and took the visitors round, showing
them the pastoral beauties of Comox,
Courtenay, Cumberland and Comox
Lake.
The British Columbia Coast Service
has selected Captain Thompson, a
navigator experienced ln the West
Coast trade, to be master on the Mary
in the first Round-the-Island cruise,
which left port on Monday for a seven
day journey, with one day devoted to
a cruise up Knight Inlet, en route to
Vancouver.
It Is many years since such a cruise
was attempted, and the effort now Is
the outcome of a West Coast cruise
Inaugurated by the Victoria Chamber
of Commerce last September, in which
all principal points on the coast were
visited. Since that time there has
been a great change ln the industrial
situation on the West Coast, a large
sum of money having been Invested in
flsh reduction plants to preserve pilchards. Both whaling plants on that
coast have found a renewal of life
through this Industry, and fifteen will
operate in the current season. Upwards of (2,000,000 is or will be expended, Including Installation of (1,
000,000 worth ot machinery.
The scenic, historic and other attractions ot the earliest parts of
British Columbia known to the civilized world were presented to tho
tourists, who were given enough time
In the various ports to see the points
of Interest.
All tickets were sold for the excursion, which may be repeated In August, although no details have yet been
settled.
To Exact Penalty
If Taxes In Arrears
Little business of importance was
slated for Monday "evening's council
meeting and in consequence the
Mayor and Aldermen found the meeting adjourned after what was a quite
w
short session. Ill attendance were
His Worship, Mayor Maxwell, and
Aldermen Parnham, Mumford, Potter,
Jeffrey and Symons.
City Clerk Cope wrote the council
asking for an extension of sick leave
until July 12. this being thought advisable by his medical advisor. This
request was granted. The only other
communication was from the secretary of the local Board of Trade, asking if the council could see its way
clear to assist, with a monetary donation, In the establishment of an auto
park and camp site overlooking Comox Lake. The letter was tabled for
future consideration but nothing wns
done in the matter.
Alderman Potter came forth with
the suggestion that owners of vacant
lots should be asked to clear some of
weeds and thistles as. work of this
nature was being acrrled out on the
city property. Alderman Symons
mentioned that conservation of water
at this time of the year was absolutely necessary and quoted steps now
being taken by the Water Company
to insure a good supply for the balance of the summer.
Before adjournment the tax question was raised and it was unanimously agreed that penalties should be
exacted ln future from all taxpayers
not paying the full amount of their
taxes by June 30th of each year.

Island Boards Of
Trade To Launch
Big Campaign
Appalled at the threatened desolation of Strathcona Park by logging
operations, Vancouver Island business
men, meeting In Alberni at the annual
convention of the Associated Island
boards of Trade next Tuesday, will
launch a vigorous movement to save
the park area for the people of British Columbia generally.
Delegates from the Victoria Chamber of Commerce will go to the Alberni convention and seek to organize the entire Island In support of a
scheme by which no logging within
the park will be allowed.
It Is believed that the Alberni
gathering will offer unanimous and
strong support to this proposition, ns
the announcement that the country
around Buttle Lake ls shortly to be
desolated by high-lead logging operations, has caused amazement and indignation in all parts of the Island.
The findings of a special committee
of the Chamber of Commerce, which
investigated the whole park question,
will go before the Alberni convention.
—Bruce Hutchinson In the Vancouver Daily Province.
At the usual meeting of the Cumberland Board of Trade held in the
Council Chambers on Tuesday night
last the following were appointed
delegates to the Associated Boards
of Trade convention to be held at
Alberni with Instructions to support
all measures brought forward In support of the proposed Cuniherlund-
Albernl road and for the preservation
of Strathcona Park: Messrs. Koht. C.
Lang, H. O. McKinnon, D. It. MacDonald, J. Sutherland and Aid. Thos. H.

the couch and now he sings, "Everything is going

Of course, everything isn't all right by a long
shot, and much that is going on is wrong. The
road to success is long and rough and most of us
never reach the goal we started out to find, but
there are still quite a number who have not been
poisoned by bootleg liquor.

All very true, no doubt.     But we might simplify
the causes and reduce the number by attributing

In spite of all the welfare work and the influence of the noontide luncheon clubs, liars still

the former Polish immigration delegate and the latter a delegate from

Canada.
Four fishermen from the United
States went fishing on the Cains
River, New Brunswick, for 13 days
recently, and caught 340 fish. State
Senator Bradford, of Indiana, caught
a 43-inch salmon weighing 2?
pounds. Others in the party were:
Fred N. Peet, Dr. E. R. Zimmerman
and D. H. Faxon. Only barbless
hooks were used so that no fish were
either killed or injured.
The second largest outdoor swimming pool in Canada has been opened
at Lake Louise on the Terrace between the dining room of the Chateau and the Lake. The new pool is
100 feet long and 40 feet wide. It
is surrounded by tall concrete columns between which there are gigantic sheets of plate glass, providing a wind break against cool
breezes.
Approximately 120,000 live fish,
fresh from American hatcheries,
passed through Dominion Express
Yards, Windsor Station, Montreal,
recently, on their way to Beauchaine,
Quebec. They will be used to stock
private lakes in northern Quebec
owned by wealthy citizens of the
U.S.A., who prefer the virgin hills
and forests of Canada to the densely
populated summer resort* of their
own country.
Norman E. Wilkinson, London,
England, inventor of camouflage
paintings which was used extensively during the late war, arrived in
Canada on the Canadian Pacific
liner "Montcalm" with his wife recently, for a tour of the Dominion.
Sir Clifford Sifton, prominent To-
rontonian, and Sir Stepford Prun-
ton, M.I.M.E., famous mineral geologist, also arrived on the same
vessel.
Col. C. H. D. Ryder, C.B., C.I.E.,
D.S.O., chairman of the Air Survey
Company of London, England, interviewed Premier Mackenzie "King
and the prime ministers of the various provinces with regard to finding out the prospects of surveying
practically the whole of the Dominion by air. lie also wishes to
know about the possibility of combined federal and provincial action
for these surveys.
On his return from a recent tour of
inspection of the Company's Western
Lines, Grant Hall, Vice-President of
the Canadian Pacific Railway, stated
that exports to the Orient in the
form of grain, flour, dressed meats
snd motor cars wore steadily increasing in volume and that trade with
Australia had been considerably
stimulated by the trade arrangements with thnt Dominion. Mr. Hall
added that conditions were good in
the,West. The mining industry in
British Columbia showed up well,

All roads led to Windsor Station,
Montreal, for three days prior to the
opening of the tenth annual international Kiwniiis convention, which
opened on June 0. Not only was the
C.P.R. station the gateway through
which an army of Kiwanians passed
into Montreal, but, every one of the
delegates, their wives and friends,
about 7,000 in all, congregated there
as the station had been constituted
registration headquarters of the
convention. A force of 32 stenographers was specially engaged to
handle the work.

No Wonder Canadians are Handsome
Canadian men and women owe their good looks^ and
beauty to their country, says Pen Chung Fann,
of Shanghai, alias Paul C. Fann, of Montreal, who
believes that environment is the chief factor in the
evolution of the human species. On the whole, this
young Chinese philosopher thinks, Canadians considered collectively, are much better than the Chinese
because of their association with more beautiful surroundings.
"This is a very old theory," snid Mr. Fann in a
recent interview, "and a very well-founded one." He
pointed out the fact that the inhabitants of the vast
barren areas of China were an ugly people, while a
native of thc Province of Kiangsu, the most fertile
and beautiful of Chinese provinces, could be recognized anywhere for their great beauty.
"Make your country beautiful, and the rest will
take care of itself."—that is Mr. Fann's recipe for
good looks. Canadians, he says, have carried out this
theory unconsciously with the result that their country
has not only great natural beauty, but mnny fine
cities, nnd thousands of acres of beautiful farm land.
The Canadian Pacific Railway with which Mr. Fann
has been associated for the rn" two Md » na'f yoars
hu played a great part in beautifying Canada he
says, as well as assisting in the country's development
in many other ways.
Paul C. Fann, as he is known in Montreal is *
graduate of Chinese universities, thc son of a Mandarin, and just 26 years old. For two and a half
years, undor an arrangement between the Governments of China and Canada, he has been making a
study of the Canadian Pacific Railway System with'
the idea of acquiring practical knowledge that he
hopes to apply to thc railroad problems of his own
country. He and several other young Chinese stud*
ents arrived in Montreal in December 1923, and sine*
his stay in Montreal, Mr. Fann hns been employed in
the Angus shops and various departments of the
Railway in Windsor Street Station, Montreal. He
has also been a student at McGill university, where
he took an M.Sc, degree, and is at present working
for the degree of M.A., which he hopes to receive in
the Fall, before returning to China In October. Mr.
Fann leaveB the Canadian Pacific Railway Company
at the end of this month and will travel through
Canada during the summer. The building in the
photograph is the Windsor Street Station, Montreal,
where Mr, Fann received most of his Canadian Pacific
railwuy training. •» FRIDAY, JULY 9,  1926.

THE CUMBERLAND 1S8.ANDER, CUMBERLAND. B. C.
i
CHAPTER XX
"PASTE JEWELS"
JOHN J. CROOK, attorney and law
counselor, arrived in Rockledge
from tbe city in the forenoon. He
was wliat the yeggs in their slang
call a "mouthpiece." It was this
same John J. Crook, clever and soft-
spoken, who appeared before Judge
Eldredge, ln his. office after lunch.
Crook went Into the evidence against
Cauliflower Pete, snd, to hear him
talk, one would have thought that the
town of Rockledge very likely owed
Pete mouey and had better compromise before it was too late.
However, the Justice of the Peace
was not born yesterday. He was used
to this. He Halted patiently and
politely until Crook had finished.
Then with a smile set the trial for
the next day und fixed bail for Pete
at a thousand dollars.
Crook was not disposed to put It
up. Perhaps It was that he knew
Pete too well. "Thank you, your
Honor,'' bowed (rook as he retired.
"I think we shnll have no difficulty
as you suggest."
Crook left tho judge's office, and
consulted a notebook. Then he inquired for Hillside Avenue and a few
moments later he introduced himself
to that precocious young criminal,
Hank Hawkins.
"I have a message which I would
have you send, young man," he begun. "When's the next sending time?
' "In about ten minutes." Crook had
shown some credentials to Hcnk and
Hank was rather flattered at being a
member of a gang who could hire
, stich a perfect gentleman to represent
them; Hank's parents were away on
a cruise up and down the Sound. Tlie
lawyer quite flattered Hank by a reference to Hank's own cleverness.
Tho time soon came. Hank started
ln at once to pick up his objective aud
then to send. Out to sea ln the cabin
of the Scooter, still at each interval,
the man with the muffled figure was
still at the line radio. There was a
satisfaction shown by the operator
when he realized that he had Hank
and that the attorney, Crook, was on
the job. The message from Hank
was a query where to get the thousand dollars ball for Pete.
The reply came back, terse and to
the point: "Vira must get the money!" This did not worry Hank In the
least. In fact his was the type of
mind that rather enjoys seeing others
placed In tight positions.
-'Hank turned to Mr. Crook, Esquire.
"You heard that, sir?"   The lawyer
nodded.   "Can 5'ou locate the young
lady?"
"I'll try. But how are you ever going to get money out of her? She is
broke, and is borrowing more."
Mr. Crook smiled. "I can do It,"
he said confidentially. Hank was
skeptical, until Mr. Crook added, "If
you see her before I am able to do
so, tell her she can save her brother
Dick by this means. That ought to
make her come through."
Hank was taking to it eagerly and
he hurried out and into tbe flivver
which he had purchased with the
pieces of sliver for which he had betrayed his friends.
Vira was hanging over the side of
her roadster talking to Jack Curtis.
Curtis was flattering aud sympatbiz- j
ing  and   the   words   fell  like  sweet
music on Vira's ears.
It was Just at that point that Hank |
and Mr. Crook appeared, having left,
the flivver near the Binnacle Inn.
Mr. Crook did not attempt to explain
what his mission was and the predicament of Cauliflower Pete.
Crook turned toward Vira. "Dick
Is your brother," he remarked casu-
illy as if he had only the merest in-
.ercst In the matter.. "You love Dick,
of course. Now, get that thousand
dollars bail so that I can get my poor
client out of the lock-up and I will
engage that he will get Dick back—
and no questions asked."
Vira was eager to do it. Besides
Crook looked like somebody.
But how to get a thousand dollars?
She was over her head now ln debt.
"Well," suggested Mr. Crook, subtly
"why couldn't you borrow some of
vour mother's jewels? Then you
might meet at three o'clock at the
Kendezvous Garage on the Motor
'arkway.
She was thinking deeply. After all,
Vira was only a little flapper with a
great love of excitement and adventure.   Vira, like many other girls of
today, was convinced that she was
equal to any emergency. At least
Vira had felt that until a few days
ago.   Now she was learning.
Vira was a quick thinker. It was
born in her. The fact of the matter
was that this girl Intrigued even the
worldly-wise Crook. He was not
quite sure ever whether she might
not be on to him. Suddenly Vira
semeed to have a bright Idea, "Very
well, sir," Bhe said briskly, "I will do
as you say. I will meet you there
at three."
The party broke up.   Vira drove off
while Mr. Crook started back for the
flivver.   Hank decided on a little spying, but he presently saw Ken watching him from a distance and decided
to beat lt fast.   Ken then started off
i on his wheel, but It was no match for
j the flivver.   And Rae was also getting
! restless.   She had a date at the Club.
I    As for ourselves, we were ever narrowing down the circle we were weav-
J Ing about the gray racer at Its place
In the old red barn. I recall one message we Intercepted with the    radio
compass.   It  was  brief.    "Apparatus
0. K."
"What apparatus?*' I asked blankly.
"That's for us to hurry   and   And
out," returned Kennedy as he urged
j Easton to greater haste.
I    Vira, In great eagerness now, stopped her car before the great Gerard
mansion.   A moment later she burst
Into her mother's room and In a flood
of enthusiasm poured forth the offer
of the lawyer to secure the cooperation of Pete In the town jail for the
return of Dick,  In  consideration  of
ball being furnished for his relase.
Mrs. Gerard, conservative soul, was
shocked at parting with her jewels on
any such wild chance as this, as well
she might be. But Vira was not at
all abashed at the objection. In fact
she had anticipated lt. Vira had
thought it all out.
"But, mother dear, I don't mean
your real jewels. You have a paste
replica of grandmother's pendant that
Is wonderful. Give me that. They'll
never know the difference, these
hicks."
I Mrs. Gerard was, under her calm
exterior, frantic over the continued
I absence of her boy. She also saw the
cleverness of Vira.   She agreed.
From the wall safe the paste replica
of the pendant was taken, placed lu
the box that held the original, and
Vira, confident of her ability, set out
post-haste for the Rendezvous Garage.
(Continued Next Week)
The report of the Mines Inspectio
Branch reflects credit on George Wil
winson and his staff. Mr. Wilkinson
has taken the trouble to summarize
the pll production and consumption
In California, giving a schedule of the
production and price fluctuations
from 1913 to date.     He states:
"In addition to the competition;
from the use of fuel oil thc Vancou- j
ver Island mines are being affected
to some extent by the entry of some
50,1)00 tons of coal In the British
Columbia markets ln the Coast cities
from Alberta, Great Britain aud tho
State of Washington. Some 35,000
tons of the latter entered as lignite
and escnped duty."

Professor Laird's Third Cross-Canada Tour
Professor Sinclair Laird, Denn nf the School for Teachers, Macdonald
College, makes his third annual lour "Across Canada and Back'
with a party of Easterners leaving Toronto by Canadian Pacific Railway
on July IU. Professor Laird's remarkable success with the two previous
tuurs evoked such lur^e demands fur another of these "nonpareil" trip**
to the land uf majestic peaks ami purple mists that the third tour
becomes a necessity, a nai onal requirement,
A personal acquaintance witli Canada's provinces is considered
essential fnr every Canadian's education nowadays. Travel is a sound
Investment which nut unly maintains its value throughout life but adds
continually to daily pleasure and efficiency. Nothing can take the
place nf the personal experience thnt comes through travel, leading
educationalists the world uver agree. In the realm of Canadian literature, history ami geography, reading and teaching may be enhance*!
anil brightened by personal familiarity after the subjects have been
seen ami admired,
Long after '.he trip has been completed there will remain in the
hearts of those who have made the journey the imprint of quiet valleys,
wooded forests, and nature's dignified solitude. As Edith Johnson
sang nf the Rocky Mountains:-
Further than vi ion ranges,
Farther than eagles fly,
Stretches the land of beauty,
Arches the perfect sky,
Hemmed through tbe purple mists afar
By peaks that gleam like star on star.
The tiiii t"   nc West covers the Musknkn district, and the world-
famous mining rcgim of Sudbury, Lake Superior is then skirted as far
a? Fort Willi im, and thence to Winnipeg with a side trip to Winnipeg
Reich, the Mnnitoban summer resort, and on to Indian Head, Regina,
.UuoiH) Jaw and Calgary where the Canadian Pacific Rockies »r» anUrtd
through the Gap, tun almost vertical walls of dizzy height, streaked and
capped with snow anil ice. Here wc come to Banff, headquarters of
the Rocky Mountains Park, a wonderful region of 2,751 square mllei
embracing rivers, lakes and noble mountain ranges.
From Banff tn Windermere, 104 miles, the party under Profeasor
Laird will gu In* automobile. Then from Windermere to Kootenay,
through beaut ful Kootenay Loke to Nelson. Leaving Nelson they pass
through thc Doukhobor country to Penticton, skirt Okanogan Lake,
cross Fraser River at Hope and proceed to Vancouver. After two days
at Vancouver the parly soils tu Victoria, affording nn opportunity of
seeing the famous Crystal Gardens.
Travelling back to the East thc trip takes in the Fraser and Thompson River Canyons, and in especial the marvellous Lake Uuise district
At the latter may be seen thc white smoke of avalanches that go thundering down from the glacier four miles away. Lake Uiuise is about a
mile and a quarter long and nenrly half a mile wide. The Indians say
its waters are distilled from peacocks' tails and paved with mother-of-
pearl, and into them pour those wild blue waters whose colors are mint
on the palette of the glaciers.
On the journey back East the trip is varied by calls at Edmonton
and Saskatoon, while the awe-inspiring Devil's Gap near Kenora Is also
taken in. A full day is spent nt each of these pieces. From Fort William the party embarks on a Canadian Pacific steamboat on which they
traverse Lakes Superior and Huron to Port McNicoll whenca a ihort
trip to Toronto el ds the journey.
While the trip is under the leadership of Professor Sinclair laird
it is by no means confined to travellers who belong to the teaching profession, and in former years a lnrge proportion has been composed of
