FORTY-FOURTH YEAR—No. 11
CUMBERLAND, BRITISH COLUMBIA FRIDAY, MARCH 18, 1925 <Mfo|s%isk> SUBSCRIPTION PRICE: TWO DOLLARS PER ANNUM
GAIETY THEATRE AT
COURTENAY CHANGED
HANDS ON MONDAY
A business transaction of interest to Cumberland residents,
took place in Courtenay on Monday last, when Mr. Edward W.
BicKle puf through a property transfer in which he and Mr.
Fraser Biscoe of the Valley centre were the principals. By this
transaction Mr. Bickle came into possession of the Gaiety Theatre
at Courtenay. It has been known for some time that Mr. Biscoe
was desirous of disposing of his interests, not because of lack of
faith in his district but because he desired to make a change of
residence. The new proprietor of the Gaiety, always full of optimism, has expressed his intention of increasing the capacity of
the theatre, adding a new lighting system, and seating accommodation, the work to be taken in hand probably this summer. Mr.
Bickle now operates the picture houses at both Cumberland and
Courtenay, he having shown his faith in the future of the coal city
some time ago when he took over the Ilo-Ilo when business seemed anything but rosy. But as he says business is not made in
a day and if one is to make good he must live and think in tho
present and the future. Formerly the Gaiety Theatre has been
running only three nights a week, Thursday, Friday and Saturday,
but from the day it comes into its new management there will be
one show each night, with the exception of those occasions when
dances will be held.
Government Is
Urged To Build
Connecting Link
The Victoria Chamber ot Commerce Is urging the Government to
construct a connection link between
the Island Highway and the West
Coast or the Alberni district. Residents of Cumberland will be interested ln the project as the proposed road
would probably skirt the western
shore of Comox Lake one of the
beauty spots of Comox district. The
distance Is not great and should the
proposal be carried to fruition would
be the means of providing motorists
with new scenic attraction unrivalled
anywhere else on the Island. At
present when tourists come to this

road that brought them here, but by

HOME COOKING SALE
WAS GREAT SUCCESS
The home-cooking sale held by the
Pythian Sisters in Mrs. L. Frances-
cinl's store last Saturday was a success In every way, everything being
gold and quite a large sum being realized. The sisters wish to thank
the public for their support o( su,'l'
a good cause as the proceeds helped
to swell the lodge's side-fund which
Is used for charitable purposes.

Cumberland is for the new link.
What Is
The Price Of
Pleasure?
She snatched at one week of pleasure—and then paid the price!
4 young girl, a department store
clerk, drudges so hard and endlessly
that she tells a woman friend that
she would give her life for just one
week of real pleasure. A young man
. hearing' her, tells her that he is willing to take her up and will give her
the week ot pleasure she yearns for.
During the week however the couple

pictures ever shown ln the city of
Cumberland.
"The Price of Pleasure" Is show

alarm was given and the Courtenay
Flre Department made a remarkably
quick response, being started on their
way before the ceasing of the alarm.
The fire evidently started in the tront
part of the house, and by the time
the department reached the scene,

NEED OF DEFENCES FOR
CANADA'S PACIFIC COAST
Local Treasury
Enriched By $915
Chief of Police Cope, assisted by
Provincial Constables Matthews, Russell and Stuart got real busy last Saturday night, and raided premises suspected of illegally handling beer.
They were successful In three different hotels, the accused appearing in
police court on Wednesday to answer
the charge of having beer Illegally on
their business premises. Tliey all
pleaded guilty and Police Magistrate
E. W. Bickle assessed each the minimum fine under amendments to tho
Liquor Act. Ab a consequence each
was ordered to hand over to the Court
a fine of three hundred dollars and
five dollars costs, making the city
treasury richer by the sum of nine
hundred and fifteen dollars, a fair
day's business.
It is a long time since a prosecution took place ln Cumberland undor
the liquor act, local people always
having had the reputation of being
strictly law abiding.
CUMBERLAND UNITED
ENTER FINAL OF THE
DAVENPORT SHIELD
The Recreation Ground, Cumberland was in excellent condition for
the semi-final of the Davenport Shield
game staged on Sunday last when the
formidable Nanaimo City team came
up for the replay—the last game between these teams resulted In a four-
all draw after extra time. Last Sunday's game just went the regulation
ninety minutes, with Cumberland win.
ning the game by a score of two goals
to one. Shortly after two o'clock,,
referee Thorburn, of Nanaimo, got tho
teams away and In the first few minutes Cumberland pressed, being repulsed by Dickenson. Bannerman
and Heyland on the right, carried the
ball back to Nanaimo territory, when
Heyland in attempting to pass, Edmunds kicked the ball against the
full back's arm. Thorburn promptly
blew his whistle, a second thought
however struck him, and he appealed
to the linesman on that side of the
fleld. A penalty was awarded as the
result of the confab, from which Jock
Stewart easily scored, exactly eight
minutes after the kick-off. The rest
of the flrst halt was uninteresting
with the local team having a slight
edge.
The second half opened with a lot
more dash from the Nanaimo team,
but with the local halves getting better all the time, a score was easily
prevented.    Conti got Hltchens away
oh the left, who slipped the ball tr
Plump, the Inside man gave Fowler a
lovely pass whose attempt to scon
was blocked by a defender, Bannsr-
man running In from the right scored
a pretty goal well cut uf the reach of
Routledge, making thc score two nothing in favor of the home team. A
few minutes later Stobbart scored
Nanaimo's lone tally from a penalty
awarded against Conti. • Blair made
a great effort to save throwing hiin-
-,«?,?' full length, inst missing the ball
by a fraction. The rest of the half
was uninteresting with Nanaimo having a slight edge.
By their win of Sunday last, the
local team meet the Nanaimo Vets In
the final. Jock Stewart, by scoring
the flrst goal of the game became the
possessor of the half-dozen knives
and forks donated by Mr. Ray Colclough, of Xanainio. tlie Sporting
Goods and Hardware Marchant, who
so generously donated the prize for
the first goal scored.
Game on Nnturdiii
The local team travel to Nanaimo
on Saturday to meet tlio Ladysmith
team In a Brackman Ker semi-final
and were also to play an exhibition
game with Nanaimo City on the Central Sports Ground on Sunday. Thfs
latter match, however, has been cancelled, the teams being unable to secure the fleld.
OTTAWA, March 11.—A resolution proposing that "Canada
should consider the question of defence of our sea coast and of our
ocean-borne lines of commerce" was introduced in the House this
afternoon by A. W. Neill, Itffiependent, Comox-Alberni. Mr.
Neill introduced the subject by suggesting that the question be
taken up in a non-partisan spirit; he suggested that a small committee of the House might be Conned lo consider the matter with
the .aid of technical experts, A policy might be evolved of de-
lence under the name of the "Canadian Policy."
Drydock at Esquimalt
Mr. Neill ui't'ed the necessity for defence of coast lines and
•hipping. The drydock at Esquimalt, which was to be finished
shortly, would be of vital importance to any British naval operations m the Pacific, Today it was practically open to the world,
with only a few obsolete guns to protect it. Mr. Neill quoted
General McBrien as stating thai the next war would be on the
Pacific.
The value of public works in Vancouver and Victoria was estimated at $200,000,000, yet a coast line of 10,000 miles was ab-
solutely defenceless.     .Most important of all was the defence of
shipping.     The greatest damage could be done there and the ob-

B.&K. Match To
Nanaimo Vets
Hopes that the two Cumberland
teams would be playing against each
other in the B. & K. dual were shattered Inst Saturday when the Nanaimo
s'els decisively knocked the Rangers
nit nf the competition, tho score being 4 goals to 1. The game, which
was played at Xanainio, was very disappointing as far as tiie finer points
nf football are concerned, the display
nf both teams being of the mediocre
variety, but even more disappointing
was the size of tlie crowd in attendance.
During the lirst halt neither team
had any advantage, no goals being
scored, but ln the sesond period they
came thick and fast. Faulds scored
llie first for the Vets, while Campbell
soon evened things for the Rangers,
bul not for long. Stone, the iN'analmo
left-wing, added two more In quick
succession and Russel added the
fourth a few minutes before full time.
Referee MacDonald gave entire satisfaction. '

. siding  at  an   Important  meeting  of
i the directors of the Comox Creamery

The school rate will likely he two

COURTENAY, March 9.—Roy Cliffe
is fast making a name for himself
In the boxing world. LeBS than two
years ago he fought his first fight as
a professional, against Joh>;:,y Morgan of Ladysmith. Since then he
lias improved in a wonderful manner and was recently spoken of hy
Daymon Runyop as one of the most
likely looking light-heavyweights on
the Pacific coast. Cliffe has won
eleven of his fourteen fights by his
famous left arm knockout and In his
recent workouts with Tony Fuente.
the Mexican heavyweight, he made a
great impression on the spectators.
There seems to be every reason to
believe that Vancouver Island ls going to supply the next Canadian
heavyweight champion and in the
very near future at that. Cliffe. who
is nt present in California, made his
lirst start in Courtenay two and a
half years ago in an amateur tournament held in the Gaiety theatre. At
that time he was very raw material
and had only just been discovered by
Max Blunt, an experienced pugilist,
who, in 11117 held the Canadian middleweight championship in France. It
is evident that Blunt and his associates were able to give Cliffe the
right start which is an Important mat
ter to a fighting man. Roy Cliffe has
many relations in the Courtenay district all of whom are of unusual stature and very fine specimens ot humanity.

SUGGESTS THAT
DAILY TEMPERATURES
BE RECORDED
COURTENAY, March 11.—An interesting letter has recently been >*e-
celved by the city of Courtenay from
a man of wide municipal experience.
The letter which was read at the last
meeting of the Courtenay-Comox
Board of Trade is from Mr. Jas. W.
Turner, superintendent of the Waterworks Department of the city of Edmonton. Mr. Turner who spent a
summer vacation in the district last
year, and who is charmed with Van-
night's   meeting   of   the   Courtenay-
Comox Board of Trade was a very Interesting  one;   and  discussions  and
resolutions of importance took place
Tlie  most  important  communication
wns a letter from the Federal Public
Works Dept., ollice at Victoria.   This
letter enclosed a plan  showing  the
i channel  which   It    Is    proposed    to
I dredge from the Comox Harbor flats
[ to the Courtenay River bridge.   This
j would be one hundred feet In width
and have a depth of five feet below
' low water. It is proposed to straight-
j en the channel across a point above
the Grain Growers' wharf during the
coming season, and if funds are available, to complete the balance of the
dredging during the season of 1926.
Tills news was received with  much
gratification by all present.     Captain
E. Lloyd, who knows every inch of tlle
j river, says  th5  straightening of the
j channel at the point Indicated is of
j vital importance.     It will obviate the
' two had turns in the river which aro
j nearly at right angles and which are
j nt times almost impossible to nego-
i tiate.     The straightening of the Chan-

EQUAL DUTY ASKED
ON EGGS COMING IN AS
ON THOSE GOING OUT
COURTENAY, March 12.—The rea-
oluion which has been forwarded to
Mr. A. W. Neill, M.P., at_Ottawa, asking his assistance In obtaining equal
duty on all eggs coming to Canada,
to that Imposed on Canadian eggs entering the United States, was the outcome of a very interesting discussion
at a recent meeting of the local Board
of Trade. Mr. C. Highet, manager
of the Royal Standard Feed Company's Courtenay Branch was of the
opinion that Chinese eggs which only
pay a three cent duty coming Into
Canada, should be refused admission
altogether. The poultry industry is
of immense Importance to British Columbia he said, and Is one of the bejt
industries we can foster for this district. The poultrymen at Duncan,
whose flocks are larger on an average
than those of the Comox Valley, find
that if eggs are a good price for four
months it will put them on their feet
for the rest of the year, as It would
carry them over the breeding season
and into the period of good priced
eggs again. Few people, he thought,
realized that the poultry and egg
business in the United States exceeded the grain business by the sum of
two hundred million dollars. This
however was the startling fact he
said; the figures being six hundred
millions for the one and eight hundred millions for the other. Mr. It.
U. Hurford said tt was unfair to allow
U.S. eggs to enter under a three cent
duty when the U.S. imposed a tariff
of eight cents on our eggs going into
the States.
COURTENAY, March 11.—Mr. J.
K. McKenzie has joined Mr. Geo. H.
Pidcock in the garage business ss
from the twelfth of the month. Mr.
McKenzie ls well known in the motor
business ln Courtenay having been
connected with the firm of Blunt &
Ewart Ltd., tor the past few years.
Messrs Pidcock and McKenzie will
handle the Dodge cars besides general
repair work. The McLaughlin car
will now be handled by Messrs Blunt
& Ewart together with the Chevrolet, another well known product ot
the General Motors Ltd.

DANCE IN THEATRE
COURTENAY, March 9.—The dance
at the Gaiety Theatre on Wednesday
evening which was held under the
auspices of the Canadian Daughters'
League, was a very pleasant affair.
About two hundred people were on
the floor and thoroughly enjoyed thc
splendid dance music. An enjoyable
supper was served and dancing continued from nine until two a.m.
20 GALLONS COFFEE
CONSUMED BY DANCERS
AT HEADQUARTERS
COURTENAY, March 9.—The dance
at Headquarters on Saturday night
brought, out something like a record
crowd. It is estimated that three
hundred people attended. The dani'-
ing was preceeded by a banquet iu
honor of a number of students of the
Forestry Branch of the Provincial
Lands Dept., who had been stationed
at Headquarters for about ten days
and was tendered to these students
on the eve of their departure. Head-
quarter's orchestra left nothing to bc
doslr.ed in the way of dance music
and the catering which was done by
Mr. D. M. isenor was to everyone's
liking. The coffee must have been
good for no less than twenty gallons
were consumed by tha thirsty dancers
COURTENAY, March 11.—A would-
be-robber was badly tooled on Tuesday night when he entered the premises of Mr. H. Bryant's leather goods
store close to the post office on
Union Street. Entrance was made
by a back door which opens into the
basement of the building. The thief
picked up a large rasp with a sharp
pointed end and with this tool he
made his way up the steps and
through the cellar lisp to. the front
store, where he proceeded to pry open
the cash register drawer with the
pointed handle nf the rasp. On opening the drawer he must have* been
disgusted to see only four small
brown coins each of a value of one
cent. These he left in the drawer.
Mr. Bryant has not missed anything
from his stock and thinks nothing
was taken. The cash drawer was ot
no great value and Mr. Bryant Is
wearing a smile.

KEEP SMILING
When .ill the world seems blasted blue,
And business is on the bum;
A   two   cent   grin,
Wilh a lifted chin,
Helps some, my ooy, helps some.
Every mining camp in the country has had
its tips and downs, bul a spirit of optimism goes
a long way towards making for a return to normal
industrial conditions. '1 his applies to coal mining towns as well as to any other industrial centres. For some time tlie coal market has been
in the doldrums but according to newspaper reports the industry is due t'or a come back, because observers have said that oil, which has been
the chief competitor of the black diamond, is
falling, many of the great producing wells of the
world having gone dry, curtailing the production
to such an extent that steam boat companies,
large users of liquid fuel, cannot place contracts
as they have done in the past. This means
simply that there is no certainty as to the supply
of oil and that a return to the use of coal will have
to be made very shortly. This being a correct
deduction there should be some reason for optimism insofar as the mines of this district are concerned. If former large users of coal revert to
that fuel, prosperity is not far in the future for
Cumberland, as the coal from this camp has always been recognized as the best on the Pacilic
coast for steam pin poses.
Under the. ia conditions we believe that the
time is uul far distant when Cumberland will be
up among the largest producers and that good
times will be permanent. A weather vane has
some value on a roof—but not in business. Don't
change your mind every time the wind blow
GO AWAY
Every man ought to snap down the old roll-
top desk, put aside his working tools, and go away
a little while, at least once a year. We get stale
and weary, looking at the same scenes every day,
our vision becomes blurred, and we do not get
the proper outlook.
A night's travel in these days of fast trains
will put you beyond the narrow boundaries that
hem you in. Somewhere in the frozen North,
the balmy South, the breezy West or the cultured
East, you will find much of interest and instruction.
"But, 1 can't get away," the poor old chained
slave says. Men have thought that for lo, these
many years, and then one night the Grim Reaper beckons to them and they go away and stay
away. Does the little world miss them? Does
the daily grind cease for those they have left behind?
Not long ago a prominent qitizen passed
away, lie was a man who toiled long hours for
others. He pul in overtime and was a valuable
member of society. "It would be hard to till his
plaee," they said. Scarcely had the mourning
friends and relatives turned away from the new-
jinade grave than the community life flowed on.
lt was like dropping a stone in the placid lake.
There was a splash, a ripple, and the surface ol
the lake was as before.
It is well to do your duty, to be zealous in
your undertakings, to practice thrift and provide
I for the rainy day. But to slave and hoard is
| wrong. You owe something to yourself, your
! health and peace of mind. Take a trip and get
in touch with humanity. It is a good invest-
! ment, money well spent. It is worth the cost of
| the carfare to "meet up" with men who are living
in another section, who are facing different conditions from the petty problems that make up your
daily existence. * If you can't go now, start planning tor your summer vacation, and when the
time comes, take it.
You will be a long time dead, and the world
will never miss you.

An unusual consignment passed
through Montreal recently in the
care of the Dominion Express Company when six Rocky Mountain sheep
were shipped to Austria to form part
of a zoological exhibit there. The
animals, which are valued at $600,
came from the National Purk at
Banff, Alberta.
Alberta farmers have recently
been shipping a new commodity to
the market. During the past few
years there has been a considerable
increase in the number of bee-keepers and last year 160 keepers had a
total production of nearly 60,000
pounds of honey, valued at approximately $15,000. The exact number
of bees is not known.
Contract for aeroplane spruce has
been made between Vickers Limited,
manufacturers of aeroplanes, and
Frank L. Buckley, of Vancouver, B.C
The spruce will be logged on the
Queen Charlotte Islands and milled
at the Buckley Mill at Port Clement,
on Graham Island and at Burrard
mill, in Vancouver. The contract
calls for the delivery of two million
feet during 1925.
Canada lends the world in automobile exports in proportion to production, domestic sales or ownership of
motor vehicles or to population. Not
relatively but absolutely the automobile exports of the Dominion are only
exceeded by those of the United
States. Since 1920 the motor vehicle
exports of Canada have nearly
doubled, the increase being from 9.8
per cent, to 17 per cent, of the automobile export trade of the world.
A special train of forty-two care,
containing nearly 900 head of stock
for export to Great Britain, arrived
at the Canadian Pacific Railway's
East End stock yards, Montreal, recently. Theso, added to shipments
from Packingham, Ont., Toronto and
other points in Ontario and Quebec,
made up what cattlemen claimed to
be the greatest concentration of
Canadian cattle for export in the history of the trade. From the yards
the cattle were shipped by special
train to the ship's side at St. John,
N.B.
When the round-the-world cruise
passengers aboard the Canadian Pacific steamship "Empress of France,"
reached Egypt recently, they were
entertained by Enani Khattab, a
prominent sheik holding authority
over a large number of villages
along the Nile. Unfortunately, the
Cshoik succumbed to a sudden attack
of heart failure. The visitors from
across the Atlantic before returning
to their ship were permitted to attend the funeral, which was conducted in the desert with weird and
'mpressive religious rites, an experience few world-travellers have
known.

Deer drinkers say that they expect
belter beer by the glass than they are
now getting by the bottle. Some of
them are conscientious in this expectation, and are doing all In their power
to help breweries. A few days ago
two boys were seen catching frogs in
a pool near town. When asked why
they were doing it they replied that
their fathers had said that the makers
of beer had had no hops for three or
four years and after they caught tho
frogs they could sell them to the brew
erles where the hops could be taken
out of them for the manufacture of
good old brown beer. Hops have
always been used in the manufacture
of beer but this new source of supply will probably be gladly accepted
as it will give a perpetual supply at
I low cost. Then perhaps beer will be
cheaper.

j $50,000 COST OF
AUDIENCE FOR ONE
OPERA PERFORMANCE
All  records for box office receipts
to an opera were broken at Universal
City, when a ?50,000 audience filled ,
the reproduction of the Paris Opera
for a specially staged performance of I
"Faust." A night's box-office receipts at the Metropollatn counldn't i
rival this, nor could the Paris Opera I
itself, the largest opera house ln thej
world.
But In this case the audience didn't
pay to see the opera. On the contrary, they were paid to see lt. The
$50,000 represents what lt cose to
have the audience there. It ls also
probably the flrst time In history that
three thousand people were paid from
ten to twenty dollars apiece for looking at an opera.
The audience was used for the
"Faust" performance, which is one
of the important scenes In Universale
"Phantom of the Opera." In addition to the $50,000 which was spent
for the audience alone, there was of
course an enormous expense Involved
In the one hundred piece orchestra,
the ballet of two hundred and fifty,
the chorus ot eighty and the opera
stars and principals.
Lon Chaney has his most unusual
role in the "Phantom," it is said,
and Mary Philbin and Norman Kerry
are the young lovers whose happiness
Is menaced by his grim figure. Arthur Edmund Carewe, Snltz Edwards,
Gibson Gowland and other well known
players head a cast of Ave thousand.
Carl Laemmle presents the picture,
which was directed by Rupert Julian,
as a worthy successor to "The Hunchback of Notre Dame," which he feels
lt will excel In every respect.
Away From Home
The long-distance telephone unites

thoughtfulness is always appreciated.

Extraordinary Construction Feat at Famous Mountain Resort

rchiteots and builders all over America are much interested in the progress of the re-building of the Canadian Pacific hotel at Lake Louise,
' Alberta. The site of this building is over a mile above sea level, and the thermometer frequently takes a sensational drop, there beinf
winter days when 66 below zero is on record. It was imperative that the new wing, which is being built to replace that burned down last summer, should be finished and open for the coming season, and that work on it should, therefore, not be interrupted by winter weather.
Several architects and contractors from United States cities, who have visited the site, expressed doubts as lo whether the job could
be done during the cold weather, particularly in view of the fact that so much of the work consisted in pouring cement. This had to be safeguarded from freezing, and it was finally decided to build a huge wooden, tar-paper lined, shell around the entire space to be occupied by the
,new wing of the hotel. On the inside of thia shell were hung thousands of feet of temporary steam coils, kept hot by 380 horse-power steam
boilers, the effect of which was to provide a safe, summer-like atmosphere for the carrying on of the work.
i The erection of so important a building in a position so comparatively difficult of access, as is the Lake Louise Chateau, is a matter call
ing tor unusual engineering skill, the task of getting the materials to the site being by no means an easy one. With a night and day service,
ia spite of ice and snow, over 26,000 tons of material and coal are being delivered by the winding narrow-gauge tramway on a four per cent
grade for a distance of 3Vi miles from Lake Louise depot to the Chateau. Canadian Pacific forces are supervising the work, supplying steam
and electricity and delivering material to tht lit*.
This extension will enable the Chateau to accommodate seven hundred guests in a fireproof building, with every modern convenience,
and one of its features will be the magnificent view of the lake and the group of mountains surrounding it from the ball room, rotunda, lounge
and dining room through enormous plate glass windows which feature the whole length of the building. The extension was designed by
Hessrs. Barott and Blackader, of Montreal, who have done other important work in connection with Canadian Pacific hotels and the contract
wti undertaken by Messrs. Carter-Halls and Aldinger, of Winnipeg.

Disabilities of League
Mr. Neill stated that we were told
that there was no need to talk about
war. Mr. Neill averred that he could
talk on the disabilities of the League
of Nations for some time.
The League was a source of enormous weakness and Great. Britain
would never have gone into it had it
felt that the United States would not
enter lt.
''We were told that we should remain defenceless. Who was so expressed in his utterances for peace
but the German kaiser? Many of
the men lay ln France today because
we had to rush them there unprepared for war.     We paid because we
had  listened  credulously to  the  assurances of the German emperor."
Advantages Through Disarmament
There was also talk about disarmament. Supposing disarmament
was accomplished, it meant a great
advantage ln one respect only, and
that was of an economic nature.
"Disarmament does not stop war,"
stated Mr. Neill. To a certain extent
It encouraged strong nations to attack the weaker ones. Wars took
place long before armament, when
men fought with scythes and the like.
We should admit the need of sonic
defence. War might occur any duy
In the Pacific. ,

SUTHERLAND'S
"OH, YOU TONY!"
FULL OF PLOTS AND
COUNTERPLOTS
Washington politics, frenzied finance, plot and counterplot ripple
across the screen in the wake
of Tom .Mix and his well-known
four-legged friend. Tony, when the
Ilo-Ilo Theatre begins a two-day
run ot thc William Fox production,
"Oh, You Tony," on Wednesday and
Thursday, March 18 and 19. Tony
does a few stunts of his own and Tom
Mix essays whal is for him a brand
new role, that of a student, and later
an instructor of etiquette, Since long
spurs and Washington society don't
mix, Tom hail to discard the "liorse
persuaders" and try a boiled shirt.
He decided to make his cowboy
friends suffer with bim and they furnish a most laughable spectacle in
swallow tails and "two-quarts" sombreros.
Claire Adams has the part of the
leading lady and Dblores Rousse
shines equally bright as a fair adventuress. Dolores, as a lady of affairs in Washington, carries her part
with all the savoir faire that ladies
In  the diplomatic circles 'exude  like
roses do tlieir perfume. It will be
recalled that Miss Rousse joined the
Fox organization after appearing in
Zfegfeld's Follies for two years.
Despite the fact that Tom Mix gives
many excruciating funny examples
of "what's wrong with this picture."
there isn't a thing wrong with tho
film production of "Oh. You Tony!"
Tom's liorse gives performances that
will Interest all lovers of horses.
While we are are on the topic of lovers, there Is a romantic element winding Its way through the tale that will
hold all sweethearts in suspense, until tlie way of the true love is made
smooth.
The masculine heart will find it
rather difficult not to be fascinated
by the charms of Dolores Rousse, who
Is the vlllainess on the screen.

CORRESPONDENCE
Cumberland,  B.C..  March  10,  1925.
Editor, Cumberland Islander,
Cumberland, B.C.
Dear Sir;—
There are times when the perpetrations of juveniles In Cumberland become so wanton that one wonders
whether there is ever any attempt
made by anybody to try to control
them. The mutilation of trees, grass
etc., the crimes committed in and
around the football field; the Invariable smashing up of an untenanted
house; these acts have come to be almost accepted as occurences over
which we have no control, like rain
and sunshine. But the latest vandalism, that ot destroying the "War
Memorial Arch, is underway, and I
am wondering whether this will be
treated with the same indifference.
Children swinging on the chain fence
have fractured the base of two of the
concrete posts, and if it was not for
iron dowels which I instructed to
have placed there as a reinforcement
when it was built, the posts would
have fallen long since. Children
climbing to the top of the monument
and leaving wooden staves up there
have started to chip the moulding immediately above the arch. Otlier
features have developed which 'proclaim the beginning of disfigurements
whicli will ruin it. Ordinarily concrete construction is permanent and
will stand for centuries unless wilfully attacked. At present as a
Memorial Monument its days are
numbered, but as a plaything for
children it Is an unqualified success.
Yours truly,
W. A. Owen.
.Expresses Thanks
The matron of the Cumberland General Hospital wishes to thank the
Cumberland Welsh Society for their
kind donation °f flowers which was
much appreciated.
H. E. Murray left this afternoon for
Ladysmith and Victoria.
On Tuesday Mrs. James Hood and
Mrs. R. D. MacDonald returned homa
from Duncan where they have been
attending a missionary conference.
Courtesy recalls the customer and
invites a new one; discourtesy drivos
away those you have and keeps away
others.
