Concert Big Success
The concert under the auspices of
the Pan Pipes Orchestra held In the

musicians performing before a large
and appreciative audience. The theatre wus lilled to capacity, and it was
with difficulty ilia mher of late

Afler tlie general singing or ••()

responses. Especially appreciated
were his renditions of "Souvenir" and
"Le Carnival de Venlse-Variatlon

Dances .Special Attraction
Especially appreciated were the
dances by Miss Sheila Allard. ot*
Courtenny. Rendering a fairy dance
attired In a beautifully appropriate
dancing costume, Miss Allard's grace
and lightness of foot made her appear
the veritable wood-nymph she was
portraying. Greal ovation from the
receptive audience testilied to her
popularity,
Clekko Hayashl, the Japanese soloist, contributed his part towards making the concert an outstanding success. Perhaps his hest selections, In
the opinion of tlie writer, were "Caro
Alio Ben" and Love Sends a Littlo
Gift of Roses." Indicative of his popularity with tlie audience, Mr. Hayashl was given mnny encores lo which
he   most   graciously   responded.
Oilier items on the programme deserving worthy mention were the

THE CHANGING SEASONS
IT won't be long now! The summer is on the
wane, the "melancholy days" are just around
the corner. Already the leaves have begun
to turn and vegetation is going to sued. School
has begun and Iho football teams are meeting for
practice. Upon every hand we see the evidence
of the change of seasons, Autumn is standing in
the wings awaiting the prompter's call as Summer
sings her closing ode, We are sorry for people
who live in tt land of perpetual sunshine and do
not experience the joys of changing seasons.
lt must be monotonous to have flowers always
blooming and the i un always shining, to know no
gray days and cloudy days, to have no snow and
ice. Soon the old porch swing will be put away
and the screens will be taken from the doors.
Soon the lights will be turned on earlier and the
old furnace will lie started. The cheerful evenings beside the reading lamp will again be here
and the music from the radio will be heard in
the home. The old flivver will not be driven so
often or so* far and thc consumption of gasoline
will be much less. Hallowe'en with its pranks
and merriment. Thanksgiving with its joyous
family reunions and then the gladsome Christmas ! The New Year with its resolutions and the
determination to do better, then St. Valentine's
Day and the eager awaiting of Easter and the
longing for the Spring. So goes the eternal cycle
of the seasons—each one bringing us the weight
of advancing years and the inevitable wooden
box in which we shall be laid to rest. Not a
cheerful thing to think about! So let us get the
most happiness, the greatest good out of the
time we are here. It is great to be alive, to enjoy
the flaming woods of Autumn to sit by the crackling Winter's fire, to hear the birds sing at the
coming of Spring, o rest in the shade of an Summer's day. Be thankful for life and health and
loved ones. Take time to help some one, to scatter sunshine, to lighten the load of your friends
and neighbors.   Be glad you are alive and remem-
A MAN OF COURAGE
THE more we read about Colonel Charles A.
Lindbergh, the more we admire his cool
courage and determination to avoid cheap
publicity and the effort to capitalize his fine
achievement. His great adventure, in the face of
failure of others to accomplish the same feat,
exemplifies the truth of the adage: Nothing succeeds like success. The. name of Lindbergh will
live' forever, while Nungesser, Coli and all the
rest who perished in the attempt to fly across
the ocean will soon pass from the public mind.
We are living in rather cheap days. Money is
king. Wealth stands for success. The simple
standards of conduct, which the founders of religions and the great teachers of mankind have
laid tlown, seem to be lost in the fog of material
activity.
The co-respondent in a notorious divorce case,
the acquitted murderess, the winner of the athletic contest, the baseball star and the big prize
fighters all seem eager to capitalize the advertising they have received, no matter how incongruous or unseemly the method may be, through
vaudeville, moving pictures, or writing patent
medicine testimonials, merely to make money
and without the slightest regard for refinement
or good taste.
And therefore the example of Mrs. Lindbergh,
as well as that of her distinguished son, comes
liko a delicious breath of fresh air, bringing with
it the fragrance of something better than making
money. The "Lone Eagle" flying across the sea
in the darkness of the night did not possess any
more courage than the same young man when he
said "No" to the men who offered him a million
dollars to simply exhibit himself as an appeal to
mob psychology. It took courage to say: "I am
an aviator, not a showman."
Mr, Bump Piercy and Mr. Tom
Cold, accompanied by Miss Margarite
McLennan and Miss Olive Richardson,
motored to Nanaimo Saturday last
and were the week-end guests of Mr.
and Mrs. J. Gold. The party returned
home Sunday evening.
A QUIET PERIOD
ARE you going in high all the time? Are you
burning the candle at both ends? If you
are, you are foolish. Every man and
woman should indulge in a quiet period sometime
during each day or evening. A few moments
when the seeming grievances and annoyances
may be calmly reasoned out. Try it and you will
be amazed at the result. The practice of indulging in a quiet period will give you a poise and
self-confidence that will bring a wonderful peace
of mind.
Fashion page has an article on
"What to wear over the week-end."
Some people jusl wear n lint over it.
NO MAN  GROWS
Jloaliliy watching other men exer-
cise.
In efficiency by bragging about yesterday's business.
Bigger than his job by watching
tlie clock.
Ho wise that he is superior to thc
ten commandments.
In liis ability to lead until he had
[ lirst learned to obey.
in popularity by planning suspi-
|clous concerning tlie otlier men.
In value by cultivation of expensive
habits.

splendor. For the stirring battle
scenes which are a feature of the
unique film, special military uniforms j
were made by a designer from auth-j
ontlc documents on the subject. The.
scenes were shot in Latvia, and tho
Latvian government readily placed
at the disposal of the producer several
regiments commanded hy General
Roschkevitoh, who reconstructed the
thrilling battle scenes exactly as they
were described In Jules Verne's famous novel of adventure. More than
5.000 foot soldiers and cavalry, and a
detachment of artillery take part in

"BEAUTIFUL CITY"
SUITS ALL TASTES
The tastes of movie patrons aro
varied, Some like romance; others
revel In sensational thrills; still
til hers prefer a bit of liiiuinu life.
All of these clusses will find sat-
lafactlon In "The Beautiful City,"
Richard Barthelmess' latest starring
vehicle for First National pictures,
which conies to Ihe Ilo Ilo Monday
and Tuesday, and to the Gaiety Theatre Wednesday and Thursday, sept,
2S mid 89th,
The star's leading woman Is Dorothy Glsli, others In the cast being
William II. Powell, Florence Auer and
Frank Puglia.
For romance there is a tender love
story of an Italian hoy for an Irish
girl.
For thrills there are gang feuds, a
man leaping to his death from tlio
lop of a tall building und a battle in
n Chinese theatre,
For human interest there is a ero.ts-
sectlon of metropolitan life which Is
seldom used by authors and dramatists, hut which, nevertheless, Is gripping and intriguing.
"The Beautiful City" Is based on
the original story by Edmund Couhl-
