Water Sports
At Lake
Puntledge Lake to Be Scene of
Annual Event
The public meeting called for the
purpose of considering the holding
of aquatic sports at Puntledge Lake,
held at the City Hall on Tuesday evening, decided to hold a celebration
at the popular lake ln about two
week's time. The date has not yet
been definitely fixed, but it is hoped
that the local collieries will grant a
half holiday on Saturday, August 11th,
when the sports will be held. Failing
the colliery company granting a holiday the sports will be held on Sunday, August 12th. The committee of
this years's sports will be saved the
expense of building a raft aud diving
tower as the one built last year Is In
flrst class shape. It ls expected that
another meeting be held early next
week, the list of events will be drawn
up and published. Last year's programme included some twenty-two
events and it is felt that tho programme this year should follow along
lines similar to last year. The committee have adopted the same slogan
as previously and recommend all
residents of the district to use tt,
talk It and act it;-—"Puntledge Lake
for Me."
Dance Honoring
Dr. G. K. MacNaughton.
Mr. and Mrs. J. Idlens were hostesses at a dance on Tuesday evening of
this week, held in the Royston Pa-
vilion. honoring Dr. G. K. MacNaughton, M.L.A. for the Comox riding.
There was a huge crowd ln attendance, testifying to the popularity of
the honored guest.
Shortly, after supper. Dr. MacNaughton; said a few words, thanking
the electors of the district and asking
all to work together for the good of
the community. He then asked for
three cheers for the host and hostess
which were followed by three cheers
for himself.
Re  Cabinet Representation
Nanaimo. B. C. July 23.
Editor, Cumberland Islander.
Dear Sir: —
Probably there ls no area outside '
of the city of Vancouver that requires
the careful consideration for Cabinet
representation as this industrial heart:
of  Vancouver   Island,  for   not  only
should the minister be conversant wlm ,
mining, lumbering aud farming,  but:
also   be   prepared   to   make   careful
study of reclamation of thousands or'
acres of logged oil" land (which may
be used for farming and grazing purposes), and also be able to give an- '
slstance   and   advice   re   forestutiuu
Further these  five constituencies on |
Vancouver Island, north of Shawnigan
Lake comprise more, than three quart-.
Iers of the area of Vancouver Island,
and probably half the population, and I
to n very large extent include the major industries of British Columbia, vi/.
lumbering, mining, farming, and llshing, and by a coincidence all tlie constituencies mentioned have the same
basic questions to deal with, right
from Shawnigan Lake lo llie north
end of the Island, and I venture ta
suggest that it is not iu the best In-
terests of Vancouver Island to have
all cabinet representation for the Is- |
land In one block and chosen within
a radius of a few miles of Victoria.     ,
In my opinion, now is a logical lime
for Nanaimo, Ladysmith, Courtenay,
Cumberland, Campbell itiver and Alberni to present a stated caso for up- '■
Island representation free from poll-
tics and on its merits alone, so as the
Hon. Dr. Tolmie can consider It from
the same standpoint, and if we can
make our efforts unanimous and without partisanship, it will go a long way |
towards giving this part of the Island
proper  representation.
I think Dr. MacNaughton has exceptional qualifications for Cabinel
rank, having lived in the Comox constituency the past twenty-five years,;
and in the midst of the basic industries such as mining, lumbering, farming and fishing, and has the ondorsa-
tlon of all factions ou this part of the [
Yours very truly.
Favors the
Lake Road
Messrs. Lang and Stevens Represent Cumberland at Annual Parley of Associated Boards
A Public Utilities Commiskm for
the province will be urged by the
Associated Boards of Trade of Vancouver Island upon the Government of
tlie province. This request is to be
made as a result of the passing of a
resolution at the convention of the
Associated Boards held in Qualicum
Wednesday. The request is for the
reappointment of such a body aud It
is set out that it should function along
tiie lines of providing reduced rates
on power from time to time if revision
should he held to be proper, based
upon the investment of power companies.
The resolution regarding the Public Utilities Commission was one that
provoked a great deal of discussion
at  the meeting.
From the Saanich and Sidney
Boards of Trade came resolutions
along this line. As first Introduced
the resolution was to the effect that
in view of the increase In the capitalization of the B.C. Electric Railway Company from $25,000,000 to
$80,000,000, and the statement that
the rates were not to be raised for
light, that in the opinion of the convention the reappointment of the Puhlic Utilities Commission should be
made by the Provincial Government.
It ls also set out that the principle
should be established that if the situation In the province warranted it,
there should be reductions made from
time to time as warranted, based on
the actual investment which might be
made by the company.
Opinion  on  Issue
Reeve Crouch, of Saanich, thought
that action should be taken to give
redress to the public in the matter
of rates when he said there was evidence that there had been watering
of stocks.
Mr. Kenneth Duncan,, of Duncan,
did no; think that jt «#as warranted
to describe the action as a watering
of stocks.
Mr. c. P. Hill, of Victoria, did not
think it wise to interfere with vested
rights. The company referred to had
acquired rights in years gone by, and
he did not think that in the interests
of investments In the province there
should be anything that looked like
Mr. Hill was of the opinion that. I;
would be possible to get the results
that were being sought In the protection of the public through action of
the Legislature.
He pointed out that the company
had added to its capital assets by the
placing of the profits there instead
or taking these dividends by the shareholders as might, have been done. It
was not right to describe this as
watered  stock.
Water Power Franchise
.Mr. A. Leighton, of Nanaimo, agreed
that ll was not wise to Interfere with
vested rights, but he feared that there
was a danger In recognizing watered
stocks and thus creating another vested right.
The company, tiQ snid,- had been
given a monopoly of water power
which was a natural resource of tlie
province. The company should not be
allowed to gel a prollt ou il.
Mr. J. Sladen. of Saanich. thought
lhat the companies could look ufter
themselves. Tlie duties of bodies like
thc Hoards or Trade were to fight for
the consumer of power In getting reduced rates so that communities might
compete with other places.
Mr. C. S. Wood, of Courtenay, said
he was of the opinion that a commission might he able to do something to protect the consumer. He
thought such a body might he aide to
go Into rates,
Mr. O. A. Cftflhran, of Sidney, supported the idea of a commission.
Mr. F. C. Grant of Nanaimo, said
he could not BOO why the B.C. Elec-
tric should lie singled out In the
matter. It was a dangerous thing he
thought to try to interfere with the
natural laws of business and de-
Mr. 1.eight on instanced the rates
that were being paid In thc city of
Nanaimo, where the franchise was
under the International Q till Hob Corporation. There was something In
the high rates there charged that
should  lie looked into.
He said that he was willing to
strike out the resolution wilh reference to the B.C. Electric Hallway
Company. He did not think that tt
was wise to single out any company,
An amendment was then introduced by Mr. Grant and Mr. George

Picnic to be
Huge Affair
! Royston Will Be Mecca of All
Residents on Occasion
of Annual Picnic
i Tomorrow, Saturday, July 28th is
I a red-letter day in tbe lives of the
youngsters of Cumberland for that
is the day set aside as the annual
picnic day of the employees of the
Canadian Collieries (Dunsmuir), Ltd.,
and it is safe to say that with the
present hot weather prevailing, the
popular beach at Royston, the scene
of the picnic will be crowded. All
cars in Cumberland will be in use for
the conveying of the many families to
the grounds. The Colliery company
will also run a special free train to
and from the grounds, leaving Cumberland and Union Bay at 8:30 a.m.,
returning, leaving the Royston aiding
at 6:00 p.m. During the past week
the various committees have been
putting the finishing touches to the
work connected with their special department and reports from the secretary Indicate that this year'g picnic
will he one of the best for some considerable lime and will rival tbe fam-
OUB picnics of a few yenrs ago.
The programme committee Is conjunction with tbe sports committee
arranged a very good programme,
forty events being scheduled for
competition. One or two rules ln
connection with the sports have been
compiled by the committee and It
would be well for competitors to familiarize themselves with the rules. No
second prize In any event unless there
are more than two entries. The Judges
decision is final in all events. These
two rules we are given to understand
will bo rigidly enforced.
An innovation introduced this year
Is the providing of tea for all who require it. The only stipulation being
"bring your own cream and sugar."
Some difficulty was experienced last
year over the amount of water for
drinking purposes, but this has been
overcome, so there need be no apprehension on that score.
The present heat wave shows signs
of keeping up for some time yet so
that the annual picnic will be favored by old snl nt his best. Take along
your bathing suit and have a good

FRIDAY, JULY 27tb,  192S
the camp gleams a hearty welcome. There is the
j aroma of coffee, smell o' frying bacon, incense of
wood smoke. Glory be, but it's good to be alive,
healthy, happy and tired—and with other good
fellows. Sleep comes as it did when you were a
boy, you lie there on your blankets wide awake
and stretch lazily—and then it is breakfast time
[0\V TO BE well and comfortable during
lot wave isn't so hard, if you are willing
to remember and obey a few simple rules.
The body is cooled by the evaporation of moisture expelled through the pores of the skin. Therefore, one rule is to drink freely of cool water.
To keep tile pores open it is wise to bathe frequently and to eat simple food in moderation,
especially fruits and vegetables.
These two rules will yield good results in a
normal body, though a third should be borne
in miud. It is to be wmperate in physical exertion.
Much of the discomfort felt wheii the thermometer soars is mental. Shakespeare, in "Hamlet," tells US J "There is nothing either good or
bad but thinking makes it so."
Hence it is best to forget the heat.
Find an interesting task, immerse yourself in
it, and refuse to let others divert you by comments on the weather, and the hottest day will
speedily pass.

EVERYBODY must admire the courage and
hardihood of the flying men—and women,
too, now—which is being so constantly displayed in attempts to fly around the world, and
in similar feats. It is only by such efforts, foolish and crazy as they often appear to be, that
man will finally conquer the elements and render
them subservient to his will.
Yet we could hope that future flying adventures will be more wisely conceived and more
efficiently carried out than the ill-fated Nobile
expedition, which has ended in such stark tragedy, has been. If reports in circulation be true,
there has been little sense of responsibility on
the part of those who conceived and conducted
the expedition, and less fitness for the task. Wine,
even Italian wine, is no friend of the flier, especially in polar regions, while to substitute prayers
to Santa Maria or any other saint for the matter
for common sense and practical efficiency is to
invite disaster.
The net results of the Nobile expedition are
the deaths of two noted scientific 'men, perhaps
of other men, equally missed by their loved ones,
and a body blow given to aviation.   The scientific

Question concerning Health, addressed to the Canadian Medical
Association, IS! College Street,

The Future of the Race
A frequent criticism of public
health work is that of savins infant
lives is not desirable, because it results in the preservation of the unfit.
Public health work is not carried
out with fhe idea of preserving the
unlit. The besl reply to the criticism
is n consideration of wh:it hns occurred.
In England anil Wales, a great deal
of public health work lias been done
and accurate vital statislics have been
kept for many years. From these vitnl
statistics, we find tbat. during the
past fifty years, the infant deaths have
been reduced by one-half. In 1875
there were 153 Infant deaths amongst
every thousand infants born; in the
year 1D26, the infant deaths amounted
to only 70 per l.ooo births.
If such results meant the preserva
tion of the unfit, of weaklings, it would
be reasonable to expect an increase
in the deaths of children from one to
live years.

There is in fishing a wide range of methods
which will commend itself to all, If you crave
action and exercise, we suggest casting for trout

"Last evening I was talking
With a printer, aged and gray,
Who told me of a dream he had,
I think 'twas Christmas day.
While snoozing in his office,
The vision  came to view,
For he saw an angel enter.
Dressed in garments white and new.
Said the angel, I'm from heaven,
The Lord just sent me down,
To bring you up to glory,
And put on your golden crown.
You've been a friend to everyone,
And worked hard night and day,
You have printed for many thousands,
And from few received your pay.
So we want you up In glory,
For you have labored hard,
And the good Lord is preparing
Your  eternal,  Just  reward.'
Then the angel and the printer
Started  up  toward  glory's  gate,
But when passing close to hades,
Thc angel murmured, 'Wait.
I have got a place to show you;
It's the hottest place in hell,
Where the ones who never paid you;
In torment always dwell.'
And. behold the printer saw there
His old clients by the score,
And grabbing up a chair and fan,
Ho wished for nothing more;
But was bound to sit and watch them.
As they'd sizzle, singe and burn,
And his eyes would rest on debtors
Whichever way they'd turn,
Said the angel. 'Come on, printer
There's tho pearly gates I see,'
Hut the printer only muttered,
"This is heaven enough for me.'"

a brief mockingly glorious spring and
then a hot, sticky summer iu
which one forgot that had ever heen
cold, in which Pauli watched tlie wax-
er face of her boy and wondered dully
If there were really mountain placeu
where cool winds sang through thick
green foliage; if there were really
stretches of beach and blue water and
salt air to which a mother
might take her small son and see the
color come back to his cheeks tlie lighi
to his iunonceut eyes . . .
Then It was fall again .... and
once more a chilly, reluctant spring.
The spring of 1917. Carl had been
gone more than three pears.
But Carl was coming home. On his
first leave. His last letter had said so
—it had even named a possible date.
Pauli walked through' the flat -with
wings on her shabby shoes. She was
hot, she was cold, she was tremulous
as a girl, she waa afraid .... Three
years .... what had they done to
him .... how would he look? What.
would he say? That he loved her, she
knew.   But three years?
She had changed. Her mirror told
her how much ... her blonde hair
graying, her small giving hands roughened, reddened, her slight figure emaciated. After Carl's letter came she
stood for long minutes by her mirror,
every day, wondering, wishing ....
wishing it all back again, the youth
and the glory of youth. Would he
notice? How much would he see? Or
would his eyes be blind in their welcome to her?
The day that Carl said she might
expect him she rose very early to
make the apartment as clean and as
familiar as love could make it. He'd
miss the pictures, of course, on the
walls; the picture of Bruce too., that
she'd put away because it frightened
her a little; so Carl's stood in the
frame now. He'd miss the wedding
presents, the books—but his typewriter still stood there, and the marble
Winged Victory.
She put a little red paper flower—a
faded thing that once had been a dinner favor—In a cheap glass vase Ir
front of Carl's picture. She swept
the room and once stood by the window looking out across the street that
had been bright with banners when
Carl left home. Now a single, forgotten flag hung limply, rain stained
new marked, torn and soiled.
She though—a symbol.
When Dr. Arndt had his makeshift
breakfast he went out to stand In
the queue before the shops to buy
food. Paull, kissing him goodby said
wistfully: —
"If we could only have something
special for Carl—not much, hut a little
—say sausnge?"
He kissed her. He looked very fea-
ble. Her heart hurt her to think that
he must go out in the slow, despondent rain that had been falling since
before dawn, to stand there, waiting
in his thin, patched boots . He promised cheerfully: —
"We'll see—it's an occasion, after
all, isn't it?   How's the boy?' '
"Restless," she told him. "he had a
-wretched night poor baby—father—I
—I'm terrified about him. It isn't
that he seems definitely ill—hut—he's
so thin—wasted."
"He'll be all right," Arnd comforted
her.   "Is the doctor coming today?"
"■Yea. I think so—be said he would
—he's terribly busy—at the hospital."
"I know."
When her father had gone she sat
down to rest a moment. Looking about
the room she thought suddenly how
all life seemed to group about the
small Are ln the stove .... the table
pushed up close, the chairs, There
was a rim of March frost on the window. The air was damp, it hit to tho
very bone. Pauli shivered with more
than the cold.
Early in the afternoon the doctor
came, Arnold Mueller an old friend
of Professor Arndt's. He was a big
man, once very stout. Now his flesh
sagged on his very frame, his red, be-
ligerent beard was peppered with
gray, his face and eyes had the anxious, brooding, pinched look of a
person who sees nothing but suffering. He came in the room and went
with her to the bedroom where the
baby lay quietly, uncomplaining, but
wide awake.
His examination was perfunctory.
He knew what was the matter with
Pauli's child. And he couldn't help.
He put some medicine In the waiting
glass, touched the thin, baby hand,
and smiled at the smile he evoked. He
followed Paull back Into the living
room und sat down, extinguishing his
cigarette and lighting another.
"Well?" she asked him.
He moved his great bony shoulders.
"1 can say nothing, Mrs. Behrend,"
he told her, " you know as well as I
what is the matter. Malnutrition. If
he could have good rich country milk
madifled with lime water and the
white of new laid eggs in orange juice
and the other things—cereals, bread-
stuffs,  beef juice"	
He looked at her out of sad, saga-
clous eyes. Pauli Bmlled—a terrible
smile Mueller thought.
"I know. You might as well prescribe diamonds and pearls and pigeon blood rubies." "Oh, doctor," she
cried out suddenly, "it isn't fair—not
to these little children—lt isn't fair to
them; we can endure lt, I suppose,
but the very old, and the very young,
innocent,   helpless"	
Mueller said nothing. After a moment he asked her:—
You've been to the hospital again
the ward nurses told me—you shouldn't, -Mrs. Behrend. Qod knows the
poor fellows love to see you come—
but—well, you only tear youaelf to
"No, No—please don't worry—Just
because that first day you found me

then, or father—and I can steal an
hour for the hospital. That first day
It was pretty bad. The boy who died
there, quite quietly. They put up the
screen almost before one knew. But,
oh! I like to be with them; they're so
homesick, they are so childlike. Half
of. them don't know what it's all about.
I can't bring them any luxuries or
even necessaries, but there's an old
pack of cards there, you know, and
I play with them and try to understand their dialects—and laugh a little, and"	
Rhe broke off. After amoment she
went on:—
"That boy in the—water hed, don't
you call it? His face no bigger than
my bab's—wltb breat brown eyes. He
has a little table rigged up. We play
games. His name's Joseph. He's only
eighteen.'  '
Mueller said wearily:—
"I know.   Ood don't I know!"
He smoked furiously a blue cloud
about his fine, leonine head. He said
presently: —
"They still go out"—
"Yes, I saw a train pulling away
from the station the' other day," she
told him, " just as the train came in.
The returning cars were filled with
wounded. The outgoing cars with
school boys. They had flowers, heaven knows where, and a band even,
and women.saw them off. But there
wasn't much enthusiasm. I tell you
the other train was on the next track.
I looked at the men—the children
who were going out. I, doctor, I went
to a stockyards once. It was like
that. The same expression—bewildered, mute, asking."
"I know," be said again.
After a silence Mueller spoke cheerfully:—
"1 met your father yesterday. He
tells me that you expect Carl home
"Today perhaps. We can't be sure.
There are so many delays, so much
red tape. I haven't heard for some
time but he said today. We're going
to get ready for him anyway."
Mueller rose, laying his still burning cigarette on the ash tray beside
the two stubs he'd put there.   He said
"I must go.   I'll be hack tomorrow."
She went to the door holding It
open a very little. The cold struck
in from the corridor. Mueller stood
there in a moment.   He asked, sud-
| denly: —
| "That violinist upstairs, across the

I what you said—that he must come
I down and see you. Ile came so regu-
I larly to the clinic, hoping lor—God
; knows what. Did he come to see you?
j You knew we lmd to take the third
! finger off?
j Pauli had gone very white. She
clung to the doorjamb. Mueller said
. quickly: —
"What is it?   Are you faint?"
i    She shook her head.
■     "No.   When did you operate?"
i    "Last week about Thursday, I think
He  was  to have  come  back  for the
dressings.    By the way I might go
up and see —now that I'm here.   I'd
forgotten   about   him   until   I   came.
The silence reminded me.   Generally
the poor devil is practicing."
"Thursday. You needn't go. Father was going up to persuade him to
come down. It must be colder up
there and he's alone. We didn't think
much about him before. But now—
don't go up. Dr. Mueller. He isn't
"Not there?"
"Saturday morning," said Pauli
very low. "he tried to play with the
poor hand, the hurt unhealed. Just
oncu drawing the bow across the
strings.   Then we beard a shot."
"My God!" Mueller ejaculated, very
low, "so that's why he hasn't been to
the clinic."
"Yes, father went up. He wouldn't
tell me anything but—I know."
"I'll go." said Mueller after a little
pause between them; "you mustn't
stand here In this wretched draught.
If—if only you knew some one in the
country. Mrs. Behrend, who could
bring you eggs and milk for the baby
at a price not prohibitive."
She smiled again.
"We do know some one. Our old
servant. Father thought he saw her
at the markets one day, looking prosperous; but he wasn't sure. It seems
to me that she would have come to
see us had she been In the city. I'll
try to get in touch with her."
He shook her hand.
"Goodbye. I'll do my best to get in
tomorrow. Tf I wore you I'd write
the woman."
"I won't forget." she promised
"Thank you, doctor.   Goodby."
She closed the door and went to
fhe bedroom. The baby was asleep.
She came back to the stove, warmed
her hands, went over to Carl's picture and looked at it. The gay-melancholy eyes of the dreamer, the
sensitive mouth—she would see them
today!    Today?
She picked up the picture and held
it to her heart, a simple, emotional
gesture. Her eyes closed. Warmth,
warmtli of her young blood ran
through her body suddenly. Carl.
Carl. Three years a stranger to her,
her lover and her husband.
Three short taps sounded at the
door—Milzi. Pauli put the picture
down and turned as the door opened
and Mitzi came in. Over her shabby
house gown she wore a coat and on
her hands were ugly woollen gloves.
She said as she came in:—
"Didn't I pass the doctor in the
"Yes." Pauli crossed to the ash
tray and put out her singular care,
the still burning cigarette.
"How's the baby?"
"Better, he says."
Mitzi sat down.
"Three cigarettes? He must have
stayed a minute this time."
Pauli took the three stubs and laid
them carefully on top of a box on the
table and turned the empty ash tray
into the stove.   She answered:—
"Yes. We talked a little. You can't
blame the doctors, They're so husy
at the hospitals. And Dr. Mueller gets
here as often as lie can. He won't
take even the ridiculously small fee
we could scrape together to offer him.
He's been dear. But he's so preoccupied—working almost twenty-four
hours a day."
"Yes," Mitzi said, "and babies can't
be patched up and sent back to fight.
That's wliat the hospitals are now—
mending stations. Tack the poor remnants together and send half a man
out again—lie's better than none. •
Heaven pity him!"
Pauli nodded, ber small peaked face
dark with a sort of rooted despair.
Mitzi asked:—
"1 suppose Mueller prescribed more
Pauli put a stick on the fire.   Rising
she recited carefully:—
"Milk,   eggs,   lime   water,   orange
other Impossible things—a fairy tale."
"How   long  since  you've  seen  an
orange?"   asked Mitzi taking off the
gloves and rubbing ber chapped hands
together, "and where on earth did you
get the wood?   It's worth It's weight
in gold."
"From the Prater as usual.   Father

raised a sullen, desperate face as she

does Kurt."
"I know but we built the fire for

Pauli picked up a sewing basket,
filled with baby clothes and lifted out
a packet of letters.   Her hands touch-
; ed them as tenderly aB if they were
i of flesh and blood,
t    "Not before evening, he said"—
j    Mltzi'a  eyes  were dreadful.    They
were fixed on the letters—the dirty.

a mot greed, an envy, a hunger.   She
murmured very low:—
|    "Letters!    Pauli,  ff  only  I  could

card, a word; just his name, in his
, own handwriting;   it's been so long

I Pauli bad opened a letter. She read
j from it:—

Mitzi spoke not hearing.

Her voice broke.    Pauli went over i
to her, the letter still in ber hand, and
put her arm about the thin shoulders.
Mitzi said, presently:—
"What a lot of leters you've bad!"
Paul! looked down on the packet. A j
folded sheet of paper was on the top.
She touched it, smiled.
"The flrst words on the typewriter. I
It was new then. Look at it now, poor j
haltered thing."
Mitzi nodded.   She said, enviously:-'
"Carl stayed in France. That was
your luck."
"I know—'promoted for courage In I
action!" Pauli reminded her. Her
eyes shone. They always shone when
she thought of that. Of the decorations. But those were only symbols-
signs and omens—they proved what
she had always known. That he'd
win through. Set his teeth in the face j
of all that was horrible to him — and
foiuiuer■■- not the enemy, that was In-
cldental—but— himself.
"I heard regularly Mitzi told her for j
tbe thousandth time, told her breath- *
lessly, as if it were a new tale, "Until!

She stopped her voice was hoarse.
like an old woman's and like an old
woman's drained of emotion.
"Fritz will come back," Pauli com- j
forted her,  also  for the thousandth
time. She moved away from Mitzi and j
sat down near the Are and repeated I
hearteningly, "Fritz will come back.'' j
Mitzi stared at her with hollow, un-!
believing eyes.   A terrible cry went
up from her, yet voiced in the merest
whisper.   She said:— I
"If I could only—know!"

Many crook stories bave been filmed, some of them good, others of lesser quality, but it has remained for
Paramount to give the motion picture
public a masterpiece of crime drama
which is true to life and constructive
in its treatment.
The picture is "Underwrold" an
amazingly vivid and thrilling story
written by Ben Mecht. It comes to j
the Ilo-Ilo Theatre, Friday and Saturday. August Srd and 4th,
Briefly the story recounts the violent adventures of a group of men and
women of criminal instincts in a
metropolitan American city. It shows
gangland in its true colors. Tlie characters have a distorted viewpoint toward life but they possess human (nullities, too. that actuate tbelr desperate acts and color tlieir loves, feuds,
and depredations. There is regeneration for only two of the characters,
Clive Brook and Evelyn Brent, a mau
and a girl whose underworld associations .have been brought about by
strange circumstances and who finally find "the right way" througn
their love.
George Bancroft, as a gang leader
ls a huge roistering barbarian who
lives by violence and dies the same
way, Fred Kohler, a rival gangster
Is a savage bandit, second only to
Bancroft. The grimness of tiie pic-
| ture is lightened by Larry Seraou'9
spontaneous humour.
The tale moves swiftly to a startling conclusion thut would appear
highly melodramatic were it not that
one can read daily of furious gun
battles between police and gangsters,
shooting it out to the death. Ttie picture i nthis respect is as authentic a*
the front page of tomorrow's newspaper.
The direction by Joseph Von Sternberg, under Hector Turnlnill's super-
iVlslon, is consistently clever. He
seems to have the psychology of crime
down to a science in its relation to
screen drama.

Premier-Elect Tolmie Is Being
Asked to Officiate at Opening
In preparation for the annual Fall
Fair to be held on September 12th. the
directors of the Comox Agricultural
and Industrial Association met at the
Agricultural Hall on Friday evening, j
It was decided to invite Dr. S. F. |
Tolmie, Premier-Sleet of the Province
of British Columbia, to perform the
opening ceremony, which, last year,
was performed by His Honor the Lieut-
Governor. R. Randolph Bruoe.
In discussing the amusements and
attractions, It was evident that the
directors consider it advisable to concentrate more on equestrian events
than in former years, as it is thought
that the horse racing, broncho bucking and similar events are now more
than ever appreciated by the public.
These features will not. however, be
allowed to interfere with thc agricultural and industrial exhibition, which
is the main feature of the annual
event and the prize lists for which,
offering nearly two thousand dollars in
premiums, has now been received from
the printers.
The chairman reported in connection
with the constructions of stock buildings that he had pledged the assocla-1
tion to the extent of $100.00 for the
completion of a third new live stock !
building to be built in co-operrtion \
with the city authorities. His action I
was endorsed by the meeting. For the I
purpose of accommodating the Cour- j
tenay band, to provide a platform for j
opening ceremonies, and for Scottish
dancing, it was decided to request the j
city council to construct a suitable j
erection for these, the exact site to'
be agreed on before construction.
Mr. Stuart Baker, chairman of the I
Sports committee, reported favorable |
prcgress, intimating that there would j
be a big afternoon's entertainment. \
Mr. John Crockett offered to provide
a novel side-show in the form of pigs I
of all sizes, ranging from the very)
largest to the very smallest.
Mr. William Duncan and Mr. John
Stalker were appointed a committee to j
interview the Canadian Collieries Co.
with a view to securing its merry-go-
round for Fair Day.
It was decided that flowers for ex-
hlbltlon may be brought into the hall
up to nine o'clock a.m. on the day of
Judging, but this is to apply to flowers
only. '
Those present were Messrs. W. A. B. ]
Paul, chairman; J. W. Stalker, Wm. I
Duncan, W. J. Gunn. H. S. Baker, Her- j
bert Smith, John Crockett, H. Morrison. C. W. Leedam, and the secretary.
for a trial plot. All of the seed will
not produce desirable plants and when
iu a small bed by themselves the
poorer ones can be discarded.
At the Dominion Experimental
Farm, Agassiz. B. C seed of mauy
kinds of both Howers and vegetables
have been saved for a considerable
number of years. This home grown
seed has. in the majority of cases,
proved to be earlier and more vigorous than the small lots purchased in
packages . Many of the best strains
and varieties of fruit have been produced from chance seedlings and
there is practically no limit to the
number which can be grown. This
alone should be incentive enough for
the average enthusiast to plant and
test his own  home grown seed.

Representative insurance men from

I ville, Qualicum and Courtenay gather-
'ed at Qualicum Beach on Wednesday
i at whicli temporary organization was
! effected with P. Leo Anderton as
i chairman and E, Felix Thomas as
secretary. The purpose of the meet-
| ing was the permanent organization
j ol an Upper Island Association which
J would devise ways and means for the
j protection of the public by establish-
1 ing the business on a sound, reliable
basis, by providing suitable safe-
j guards. A committee of three was
appointed to draw up a constitution,
j and it was predicted that the Association would eventually become .Pro-
j vincial anl Nation wide. About 40
delegates attended.
By saving some of the home grown i
seed the keeping of a flower garden ,
may be made considerably more in-1
teresting.   Many of our best annuals
biennials and perennials seed freely
and by savfng some of the seed, future
plantings can be made more economically.   There is always, too. a more
personal interest in plants which havo
been   produced   entirely   through   the
growers own efforts.
Where pure strains are wanted moro
care must be taken to prevent cross
fertilization by Insects and wind.
Where strains become crossed, however, there is an added possibility of
obtaining something different in the
flower world which will well reward
the grower for any trouble he may
have taken.
When the flower fancier undertakes to grow hirt own seed It is advisable to start with the best strains
of seed possible. Some care should
also be exercised in choosing and
marking the most desirable plants
when in bloom. These are the ones
which will most likely give the hest
offspring. Seed is best stored in a
dry, cool room and away from all possible attacks of mice. When harvesting seed be sure to mark the date and
variety on the package as identity is
easily lost. Allowing the plants t«
ser-d will ordinarily shorten the period of bloom. It is best, therefore, to
mark and save from only a few of
the best specimens.
For perennials, It is advisable to
set aside a small area in the garden

road, which was surveyed laat year,
to connect Puntledge Lake, Cumberland with Alberni, a distance of thirty-two miles. Mr. Lang explained to
the convention that it was the opinion of many that the estimate put in

and .suggested that the new government have the matter looked Into.
Mr. P. Leo Anderton, of Courtenay.
