Cumberland XL
Defeat Navy
Cumberland, July 16.—Cumberland
crickteers again triumphed over a
team from H.M.S. Colombo at the "Y"
grounds on Sunday. A team from the
lower deck of the boat came over and
& most enjoyable game resulted with
Cumberland winning by 34 runs, due
principally to the fine bowling of
Harry Taylor and a good stand by
Idiens and Hall. Cumberland's fast
bowler was in deadly form, taking
eight wickets for 17 runs. The home
team batted flrst, Newton opening the
bowling for the navy boys. Runs came
fairly steadily, the opening batsmen,
Idiens and Halt, making a good stand.
The other Cumberland batsmen did
not do very much, the whol side being
dismissed for 79 runs.
Taylor and Vernon-Jones opened,
the bowling for Cumberland, the former getting a wicket in his flrst over,
whilst th latter should have had Lawrence dismissed l.b.w. and also missed
the same batsman when he returned
an easy one to the bowler. Jones was
relieved after bowling five overs at a
cost of eleven runs, Hail replacing
him. Hall managed to get two wickets at a cost of 14 runs. Taylor doing
some great damage to the other batsmen, coming out with a real good average of eight for 17. He kept a good
length throughout and had the batsmen worried all the time. Following
are the scores.

The water sports held al Lake Cumberland ou Saturday last attracted a
large number of people.   The weather
man  was on  his best  behaviour aud
old sol beat down on the merry i.hroug i
of spectators and competitors, making I
a dip in the Lake very acceptable, a   proceedlnfi8*
contingent from'H.M.S. Colombo was1
on   hand and  helped  considerably to
enliven  the proceedings.    Many real I
good  races   were  witnessed  and   the I
high   diving   contestants  drew   forth I
many  rounds  of applause  from  the!
big crowd on hand.   Perhaps the most
exciting race of the day was the single row boat race for men which ended in a dead heat, first and second
prizes being divided.
On arrival at the Lake in the morning, all kiddies ou the ground at 11
o'clock were presented with a small
sum of money, which the majority of
them spent in ice cream or soft
drinks at the nearby store. The
children's races were pulled off first
and the senior events started about
L2.30 noon. 1 nthe open events for
men, several of the sailors from H.M.
S. Colombo entered and provided keen
competition, The greasy pole event
also attracted a large number of entries, the ai'tlcs of some of the entrants when on the pole drew forth
roars of laughter.
Following the sports, the sailors
were entertained at dinner at the
L'nion Hotel and Waverley Hotel and
at 5.45 a football game was played
between the sailors and a team com-
prlsed of a mixture of old time city
players and rising players. Amongst
the old timers on the local team
"Skipper" Murray was about the
pick, WihllBt a youth .named Savage.
a recent arrival in Cumberland, played a good game and showed a thorough knowledge of the soccer game.
For the sailors. Petty Officer Edwards at centre forward was good,
but the hest man on the field was undoubtedly the left back .jf tl.e Colombo team, his tackling and clean kicking being very noticeable. The game,
taken all round was a fairly interesting one lo watch and ended in a draw
of one goal each.
Following the soccer game, a smoking concert was held for the sailors
in the Cumberland Hall, at which a
large number of citizens were present. The visitors were entertained
right royally and at eleven o'clock
the smoker ended with all present
singing "For Auld Lang Syne." The
boys were transported back to the
wharf at Comox by several generous
citizens aftor a real good day's outing.

Summer Diarrhoea
More babies die in Canada during
the month of September thau during
any other month ot tho year. Tlie
reason for this is because so many
of the babies are weakened hy Attacks of diarrhoea during ihe hot
summer months, they fall victims to
second attacks of the disease or 'o
other conditions, whicli. in their slate
they are unable to withstand.
ln the year 1923 ,over 4,201) babies
died as a result of diarrhoea. This
means that, on an average, over
eleven babies each day during the
year because of this coudltfon. There
are not nearly as many deaths now
from this cause as there were only u
few years ago. hul wc are still paying
a heavy death toll. The progress
which has heen made is practical evidence that diarrhoea can he largely
prevented if we will take the necessary measures tn do il.
The more serious forms of diarrhoea are due to germs which gain
entrance to the body in water or
othor rood. The reason why It occurs
more frequently in warm weather and
why lt Is commonly known as summer diarrhoea is because, when milk
is worm, any germs which are in the
milk grnw rapidly, and when such
milk is given lo tho babies, lhey receive, as it. were a, large dose of
germs which cause diarrhoea.
Breast-fed babies seldom have this
type of diarrhoea because breasi
milk is  practically sterile;   that  is.
free from germs. This is one of the
reasons why every child should ho
brens -fed. The surest aud most prac-
tlcal way to prevent diarrhoea Is to
I'm- babies who cannot be breastfed, and for older children, milk
which is pasteurized should bo used.
If pasteurized milk cannot be purchased, then it should be pasteurized
In the home. After pasteurization,
every care must he taken of milk, in
order to keep it cold and free trom
dirt and Hies. Milk is a most valuable food, hut it must be cured for or
il  is dangerous.
Mothers should realize that if a
diarrhoea does occur, it is a serious
condition, an dthe time to call a doc-
tor is immediately, not several day^
Inter when the baby is acutely ill.

Nosed Out In
Close Game
!   Cumberland, July 16—A fine baseball
'game was played at the Cumberland
; ball nark on Sunday between a Powell
River team and the local nine.   The
■ locals managed to nose out by the
score of 4 runs to 3, as shey bunched
! their  hits and  pounded  the ball  all
'over the lot ln thc fatal seventh inning, scoring 3 runs and putting the
! game on ice.
!    Moyer pitched well for Cumberland,
allowing only three hits, while twelve
j bingles were chalked up against  the
i opposing  twirler.    Harper  of  Powell
1 River supplied the fireworks for the
day when he poled out a long home
: run in the Gth innings with the bases
I empty.
[   The  Cumberland    boys    played    a

The forebay Is a balancing reservoir
between the flume discharge and the
intake of the pressure pipe Unn leading
to the turbines in the powei* house,
1,150 feet  below.    It is composed  of
earth-fill  dams  and,  at  the  present
time, is in the process of being enlarged
by some 60 per cent, in order to take
care of  the  increased demands  that
will be occasioned by the installation
of the fourth generating unit.
After a brief inspection, the  party

During its tortuous course between
the forebay and the main storage
dam, tlie flume crosses a number of
deep gulches by means of high tres
ties. Several of these trestles are permanent structures of re-inforced con.
crte. This Journey occupied about half
an hour and afforded some unique
views of the valley and mountain
scenery and, incidentally, gave the
visitors some idea of the very consid'
table engineering problems that had
to be faced and overcome while this
development was under construction.
On arrival at the main storage dam,
or "Diversion," the party debarkew
from thc train and, after a short walk
along the top of the flume, arrived at
the automatic power plant built within the face of the dam. This plant
was completed in the Fall of last year.
It develops 2,000 horsepower, utilizing
the head of water stored behind the
dam. The water, after passing through
the turbine wheel of this plant, discharges into the flume and is again
utilized under the high-head develop,
ment which had bcen visited before
An interesting feature of this plant
is that it is entire-automatic in op.
eration, adjusting, itself, ln conjunction with the main power plant, to the
varying   condition   of   the   demands
made upon lt.   It was also explained
jtliat not only will the plant regulate
I itself in this way,  but it will automatically shut down should abnormal
|conditions arise and will automatically
j start again as soon as conditions be-
j come normal,   In case of serious trou-
Ibue, the plant will shut down of its
'own accord and remain so until an

An interesting hour was spent in in

which the train was once again board

^ood time. Here afternoon tea was
served and proved to be a very wel
come item in the programme at this
time. After everybody had refreshed
themselves, Mr. Arthur Leighton, the
newly elected president of the Associated Board of Trade of Vancouver Island, tendered a vote of thanks, on
behalf ol the visitors, to Mr. A, T.
Goward, vice-president of the B. C.
Electric. Mr. Leighton said that not
only had everybody enjoyed the day
thoroughly, but the whole plan of the
development, thc engineering features,
the amount of plant and equipment,
etc., necessary to produce the electric
power that came so cosily and con-
eniently to the average customer, had
been a revelation that they would not
soon forget.
Mr. Goward replied briefly and said
he was particularly pleased to have
had the opportunity of having so wide-
ly representative a gathering visit the
company's power development on Vancouver Island. He assured his visitors
that he, personally, had enjoyed the
day as much as any of them. He also
reminded them that they had seen
Jordan River under its most ideal conditions, when everything was running
smoothly, but that there were times,
especially during the winter months,
when things were not quite so smooth
and orderly and that at such times
tlie giving of a continuous service was
only accomplished under considerable
difficulty, In this connection, Mr.
Goward paid n tribute to thc efficiency
and loyalty of the engineering stall In
charge of operations at tlie River.

Other matters touched upon by Ur.
Neill included the arrangements and

The  perennial subject   "1   the divorce

their kind attention and wished the ; ;

Mr. .1.  I'. Forde. the dlstrlcl  engineer  was  next  called  upon.    He  said
he was  not   iratnr like  Mr.  Neill
and as the member for Comox-Alberni
had said, it was usually the thing to
start a speech wilh a joke, but as .Mr.
Neill had told ihe very joke he was
going to tell tbem, he was somewhat
at a loss how to begin. In speaking
of the proposed float at Lake Cumberland. Mr. Forde produced a plan which
he had prepared showing the see-
lions of the approach to' Ihe float
which he thought would take care of
traffic until such times as the money
was voted for the complete structure.
He said if the money was voted his
department would lose no time in
getting tlie work done. He asked If
nl, any time there was anything the
board would like lo suggest or offer
any criticism of the work undertaken
by his department he would be only
too pleased to have It. He welcomed
suggestions or criticism and if It was
found at ail possible, the same would
be accepted in the same spirit in
whicli ll was offered and fullv considered.
Others speakers included Mr. Mc.it-
I tngu Bruce, the nasi president of the

Fishing Reported to' Be Good
Campbell River—Summer holidav
makers from many cities in various
parts of Canada and tlie United Slates
are arriving in the district. Among
the cars thnt have come to Campbell River some have been from Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba, California, Oregon, Washington and Ohio.
Some of the tourists have been here in
other years; many are making their
initial tour of this part of Vancouver
Island, but all huve thoroughly enjoyed their outing. The fame of Elk
Falls have spread far and wide and the
first questions residents of Campbell
River are asked, particularly by first
timers Is "where are thc falls we have
heard so much about?" Then when
homeward bound they have invariably
said they were glad they had not
missed viewing the most wonderful
waterfall in Western Canada. Lasl
week end there were forty cars at
Upper Campbell Lakes and a lot of
fish were caugh.
Pishing Is <<ood
The fishing fleet ls busy in the vicinity of Cape Mudge, one carrier belonging to the Quathiaski Cove Cannery coming in last Saturday with
fifteen hundred bluebacks. Thirty
cents is being paid for these fish. A
number of- springs have been caught
here by sportsmen. The largest ouo
to date weighed 24 pounds. Several
others over the twenty-pound mark
h:ive been brought in. On Saturday
morning C. W. Dunn, a New Yorker,
who has been spending a holiday in
this district was successful in landing
five nice springs near the mouth of
the river.
