Ilo-Ilo Theatre
Christmas Cheer
Fund Concert To
Be Outstanding
Programme   Will   Include   Items   by
Many Well Known Local
The concert to be held next Thursday under auspices of the citizens
committee for Cumberland's Christmas Cheer Fund will be an outstanding one. The concert will start at
7:.'10 nnd will be followed by a monster dance in the Ilo-Ilo Hall. Every
artist approached by the committee
readily offered to do something and
the response from friends nt Courtenny has been most gratifying to the
entertainment committee. Mr. G. W.
Stubbs when approached to put on a
small sketch suid if he himself could
not put one on be would get Mr.
Meredith to put on a turn. At this
season of the year Mr. Stuhbs is a
very busy man but he will do his best
to assist the Cumberland Fund. Mrs.
B. Harvey, another Courtenay resident will also assist as will the
Thomas brothers, new comers to
Courtenay. In addition the Men's
Musical under Mr. C. VY. Sillence wall
give one or two items. There will
also be dancing by the Moore Sisters
and Miss Bessie Carney and instrumental solos by Mr. James Walker
and Mr. H. Thomson. Miss Henderson of Cumberland and others will
also be on the programme. There is
not the slightest doubt but what the
Christmas Cheer Fund Concert at
the Ilo-Ilo next Thursday will be
about the best variety concert ever
held here. Tickets are now on sale
at most of the stores in town nnd the
price of admission has been placed
at 50c antl a chargre of 25c for children. A big dance will follow the
concert and the two local orchestras
the Merry Makers and the Sunny Side
in addition to assisting at the eon-
cert will provide the music for the
dance. Gents, will he admitted to the
dance for 50c and ladies 25c.
Just before going to press the
ehalrman of the entertainment committee informed us thnt the full list
of artists to appear at the concert;
■will be Sunnyside orchestra, the
Misses Moore, in scotch dancing, Mrs.
B. Harvey, G. W. Stubbs Co. in a
fifteen minute sketch, J. Thomas, elocutionist, T. M. Thomas, baritone,
J. Walker, violin solo, H. Thomson,
saxaphone solo, Miss E. Henderson,
Mrs. Spooner, Miss Baldwin, Miss
Bessie Carney. The Men's Musical
will assist but owing to many of the
members having engagements on that
night it will be well on in the second
half of the progrnmme before they
will be able to appear. The committee had many offers during the week
from resident artists who were quite
anxious and willing to assist at the
concert, but owing to the large number already on the list, it was found
Impossible to accept the offer of all.
As will be noticed, fhe concert will
be quite of a varied character and
should be well worth going to. A record crowd is expected.
Committee Will Accept Gifts of
Clothing, Etc.
During the week the investigation
committee of the Christmas Cheer
Fund met at the City Hall when it
was reported that much progress had
been made. Mr. Gordon Cavin has
promised to send a parcel of boots or
shoes and Mr. Jobn Sutherland also
offered a parcel of underclothing.
Campbell Bros, and Mr. Alex MacKinnon also will help out with parcels of goods. From Union Bny word
was received that clothig and money
would be sent from citizens at the
shipping point. The response for aid
hns been very' generous and the committee of the cheer fund will, undoubtedly be able to tlo a great deal
of good work. Mr. John Conwny
very kindly sent along a donation of
$5.00 antl the Cumberland Rod and
Gun Club a donation of $10.00; the
Cumberland Branch of the Canadian
Legion also sent $10.00; Messrs. Bond
and Son donated a $15 canary which
will be drawn for, tickets for same
now being on sale at 10c or 8 for 25c.
$2.00 was also received from Union Bay "from one who loves children."
Anyone in the district who can help
in the way of clothing, boots and
shoes, etc. is asked to leave their
parcel at the city hall; the committee
will do the rest and see that the
goods reach the proper places. Several, cases have come to the notice
of the committee during their investigations during the week, thnt need
help. A careful record of all assistance given out will be kept by the
committee, who alone will know of
the families assisted.

j It is interesting to note that during
I the past year much good work was
accomplished by the Ladies' Auxil-
I iary of Holy Trinity Anglican church.
I This was revealed at the annual
; meeting held last week when the re-
. port stated that with a membership
, of thirty $283.15 had been raised
! during the year. The final note on
| the Parish hall kitchen amounting to
1 $157.50 was met and donations given to the Church committee, Sunday
School and several other branches of j
the church.
Mr. Beaton of the Elk River Tim-1

so fast that all interest was soon lost takinp a CQr( without the owner,R,
and many spectators left the field.  conserit

all times dangerous. Time after time j Hote, in a somewhat wre,ked condi.j
tion. Pedestrians had also reported
to the Police of seeing a coupe come
dashing down the street. The car:
took tbe wrong side of the road and
when leaching the bridge ran partly!
up the ramp on the left hand side, j
bumped off, righted itself and went
the homesters went down the fleld
with a perfect combination and goals
came rapidly. Out of the first six
goals scored, Jock Campbell bagged
four with Bartholdi and McFarlane
getting the other two. Two goals
were scored for Cumberland by an
opponent placing through his own
goal and the final score of twelve
goals to nothing will boost the Eagles
goal average sky high. A write up
of the game is almost impossible as
goals came so frequently that the
biggest portion of time appeared to
be taken up centreing the ball. Perhaps a comment or two about the
Eagles' team might be in order. Take
the forwards, first. They were about
the snappiest five the Eagles have
tried this year and it would appear to
be a good plan to persevere with that
line. The half backs, especially the
wing halves were good and Conrod
in his new position nt right half did
not weaken in his play at all. We are
still of the opinion and have held to
it all season that the right half position ean not be filled by any other
person than Scotty Hunter. He
knows the game well, does not waste
many balls and is a good tackier. Tobacco for a young player just starting out did fairly well at centre half
and is a good man to have in case of
emergency. Jimmy Weir was as consistent as ever and with Conrod at
centre half and Hunter at right half
we are open to bet dollars to doughnuts that Cumberland would have the
best middle line, amongst the juniors
there is to be found in B.C.
The defence on Sunday had very
little to do, but what was done conveyed the impression that both backs
have now got used to one another's
nlay and should make a real good defence with Jimmy Walker as goal
tender. The cup tie games will be
coming on soon when it would be just
as well to stop experimenting with
the team.
It is all very well for the executive
of the Eagles to experiment with the
team in an effort to build up a worth
while organization, but we honestly
think that, with the cup ties coming
on experiment should cease, giving
the present team more opportunity
to play together. After all it is team
work that counts and judging from
Sunday's display it would appear
tbat a real good eleven has been got
together. It would have been very
interesting to hnve had much stiffer
ipposition against the boys and it is
to be very much regretted that the
game this week end against the Nanaimo Lumber Co. juniors, should
have fallen to the Courtenay boys.
Not that Courtenay will not give u
(food account of themselves but we
would very much liked to have seen
our own boys in action against the
hest junior tenm in the Nanaimo district.
Cumberland Cronies' Burns' Club
held their regular whist drive and:
■lance in Memorial hall on Saturday,
evening last. At whist which was
played in the early evening there
were twelve tables in progress, Mrs.
T. Cessford and Mrs. F. Slaughter
gaining ladies' first and second prizes
while Mrs. K. Bobba (substituting)
and R. Shaw carried off prizes in the
gent's section. Refreshments, delicious and abundant were served by
ladies of the club when the crowd
was augmented by a large number
of young folks, all adjoinnig to the
dance hall where a merry time ensued till midnight, dancing to music
supplied by the Merrymakers' orchestra.
Witr.esses for tbe prosecution were
Miss Yates, Mr. Slessor, David Idiens
Constable Donahue, A. Tilbe and A.
Grant. The defence which was conducted by P. P. Harrison produced
Stanley Harris, Hal. Dixon and the
accused as witnesses. Magistrate
Bates reserved his decision until this
morning so that he could review the
evidence. The decision wns handed
down at the Courtenay Police Court
and Marsh will have to pay a fine of
$25.00 and costs or go to jail for sixty days.
Union Bay Crib
Team Drops One
In League Table
Gives Comox Lead in League Table
Union Bay dropped one point In
the Cumberland and district cribbage
league on Wednesday night when the
Conservatives jorneyed over to the
shipping point for a scheduled game.
The contest was keen, the shipping
men being most anxious to capture
the full points. The Conservatives,
full of confidence went out after their
opponents and when the final count
was made it was found a draw had
resulted the scores being 18-18. With
Comox defeating the Courtenay Elks
by a score of 24-12 the ranchers now
head the league by one point margin
over the Union Bay team.
The Veterans in their game against
the Oddfellows hit their championship
stride of last year, coming out winners by a score of 24-12. In the
other league game played at the
Eagles hall, a draw resulted, the
Athletics having al lthey could do to
make a draw of it. The league schedule is just ubout half completed and
the race for the top position will be
in earnest from now on. Comox only
have a one point lead over the Bay
nnd four points over the Conservatives and as Union Bay and Comox
hnve to meet twice during the second half of the schedule the race for
top berth is going to be an interesting one. Should either or both teams
fat! during their next two games and
the Conservatives and Veterans win
the race will be even more interesting.
Mine    Rescue    Association    Host    to
Many    Friends;    Presentation
Made to John Thomson
Upwards of sixty attended the bari-
quet on Saturday night last in the
Union Hotel, held under auspices of
thc Cumberland Mine Rescue Association, with Arthur W. Watson acting as chairman. Following a splendid dinner, the. chairman called for
order and snid it was a pleasure to
aee so many present and hoped all
would enjoy themselves. "As we have
a fairly lengthy programme, I will
not weary you with a speech," said
Mr. Watson, "but will call upon the
orchestra to open the proceedings."
The toast to "the King", was accorded musical honors after which
the orchestra composed of Messrs. S.
L. Robertson, piano, R. Littler, mandolin and W. Jackson, cornet, delighted with a popular number.
Mr. John Thomson was then called upon by tbe chairman fo propose
a toast to the "father of mine rescue
work in British Columbia, Mr. Thomas Graham." Mr. Thomson said it
gave lilm a great deal of pleasure tb
propo.-e this toast and reviewed briefly the excellent assistance Mr. Graham htd given to mine rescue work,
not only in this district, but to other
portions of the Province. He would
also ask Mr. Graham to present certificates to five members who had recently passed the necessary examinations in mine rescue work.
Mr. Graham on rising was given a
great ovation, proving thnt he waa
just as popular as ever he was. He
said be felt soimewhat nervous at
getting up to speak so early in the
evening nfter such an excellent dinner and it was hardly late enough in
thc evening to expect a man to be
eloquent. He congratulated the successful students and urged them to
continue in the work. He then presented the certificates to Messrs. Sam
English, J. Vaughan, G. Brown, G.
Marshall and J. Francioli.
Mr. Graham thanked the local mine
rescue association for their land invi-
tatiton to be present with them at
their banquet and warmly thanked i
the assembly for the'hearty manner'!

arm.    The unforunate lady was
congratulating him on the many years -tended ^ by Dr. Hicks at the Cum*
of service he had rendered.   He then
presented to the instructor beautiful
fountuih pen. and desk set and pipe
and case, a mark of appreciation from
his pupils.
Mr. Thomson, on rising, was very
visibly affected. He said he hardly
knew what to say. The present he
had just received wns something he
ditl not anticipate and all he could
sny was "thank you from the bottom
of my heart." He hoped he had
been of some service to them during
the time they were studying, he had
done the very best he could and had
enjoyed doing the work very much.
Turning to Mr. Graham, he said,
"Any success I have had during the
time of my stewardship, I owe largely to your efforts, as you have been
at all times, more than ready to help
me out with my work."
A songrby Norman Richards was
followed by n toast "Canada" proposed by Jack Vaughan and responded to by Dr. MacNaughton, M.L.A.
In his reply, Dr. MacNaughton said
he did not know he was on the programme, and the toast Canada was
a wide subject. They knew just as
well as he did how the country at
present was facing a period of depression, a depression that was not
wholly confined to Canada but was
world wide and from which Canada
was in a better position than any
other nation to emerge triumphant.
The doctor was in good form and in-
terspeised his remarks with many
witty sayings.
A song by W. Devoy and a cornet
solo by W. Jackson was followed by;
a toast to the "Canadian Collieries"
proposed by Alex. Dunsmore and responded to by C. Dickinson .
A Scotch song by W. Herd and
dub swinging by W. Juckson followed. The latter nlso demonstrated
how it was possible fur a man to get
through a small space. He produced
a box measuring seven inches by thirteen inches. Very cleverly he demonstrated how such a feat was possible.

relief of distress among widows, orphans and dependents of forty-five
men killed, showed that a sum of
$88,627 had beeb raised. In going
over Ihe list as published in the daily
papers we were astonished tu discover that no mention was made of the
amount sent from Cumberland. If
memory serves us right, the picnic
committee of the employees of the
Canadian Collieries sent $200 and the
City Council $150. It might be that
the committee included Cumberland's
contribution in the miscellaneous account which totals, $4,475. Residents in other parts of the Province
on seeing thc published list would be
led to believe that this community
did not contribute unything to the
dependents of the unforunate miners.
Cumberland's contribution of $350
Wes reckoned at the time to be a
mo.-t generous one, considering thc
slack time at the mines in August.

year 1009, the time of the big expo
sition in Seattle. Along with other
mine rescue officials he visited the
exposition and amongst many ex-
! hibits was thc apparatus known as
I the Druegar. After having the merits of the new device explained to
them, Mr. Graham along with another -official entered a smoke laden
chamber to test out the apparatus.
For half-an-hour they remained in a
deadly gns chamber and thoroughly
tested the new device. On returning
to Nanaimo he persuaded the Western Fuel Corporation of Canada to
purchase a few of these machines
and they were the first to be installed in the Province of Brtish Columbia. After a time the then Minister
of Mines became very much interested in the work with the ,result that
government mine rescue stations
were built at Nanaimo. Fernie and
Meritt. Mr, Stewart who had been
very interested in the work was made
the first instructor at Nanaimo, a
position he still holds, whilst at Fernie, Messrs. George and Charles
O'Brien were the instructors. The
Canadian Collieries at Cumberland
also became interested and built the
mine rescue station here, at a later
date turning it over to the government, when the Minister of Mines appointed the present holder of the situation, Mr. John Thomson. During
the many years Mr. Thomson had
been government instructor. Mr. Gra-
hnm had always found in him, a most
efficient and painstaking official,
keeping his equipment in first-class
shape and ready for any emergency.
He recalled some the early members of the mine rescue work in this
locality and spoke of the excellent
work by the late Mr. Dudley Michel,
who became the provincial government inspector. During one of Mr.
Michel's visits to Cumberland to examine one of the teams, the inspector passed the remark that the team
was the finest he had ever examined
in thc Province. That team was composed of W. Beveridge, John Williams
E. R. Hicks. The doctor very briefly
traced tho progress Cumberland had
made from the time he landed at
Union Bay, twenty years ago up to
thc present time. Cited improvements
made to the city streets, schools, hos-1
pital and many other works.
A quartette composed of Messrs.
W. Jackson, G. Guy, Alex. Dunsmore I
and J. Newman pleased greatly with
an original composition. This was
followed by a toast to "The Press",
very ably proposed by W. Devoy and
responded to by J. Vernon-Jones, |
who later rendered a humorous few
lines about a pedigreed pup.

proposed by Ben Horbury was responded to by M. Brown, who in his
reply drew forth roars of lnughter

M. Adamson being given the consolation. In the peanut race, Mrs. C,

winner. During the evening refreshments were served) the hostess being

Many   Results   Seen
Oil from coal means to Great Britain a smokeless atmosphere for ber
large towns owing to the use of
smokeless fuel from which the oil
has been extracted. It also means
the supply of all its fuel oil needs,
the supply of a large part of its petrol needs, and the provision of a number of by-products such as tar, dyes,
phenols ,1'resols, parafin wax and syn-
'.beic resin. Should the heavy oil in-
tehal cormbustion engine for motorcars, airplanes and airships be perfected us is quite probable, the petrol
question will be largely eliminated.
Various suggestions bave been put
forward to hurry on the production
of oil from coal. The iron anil steel
manufacturers are considering a
scheme for the co-operation of their
factories with low temperature distillation processes. Another proposal
is the imposition of Id per gallon tariff on refined fuel oil so as to promote the erection of refineries in
Great  Britain.
Refineries Required
The present absence of oil refineries is one of the bars to the progress of the oil-from-coal industry.
There is also the question of the linking up of the expanding electrical
industry wtih the use of smokeless
fuel. The present domestic consumption nf coal is about 40,000,000 tons
a year which means roughly. 4,000,-
000 tons of oil.

IF IT WERE not for Christmas, family ties would not
be as strong, and fewer sacrifices would be made on
the altar Of home. It is a time that, wherever we
are. we always make an effort to retrace our wandering
footsteps to the home of OUV youth.
Were it not for Christmas, that letter which we have
so often meant to write would never be sent; nor thc
hand stretched out to a-iil our less fortunate neighhnrs.
It is a time when we forget feuds, heal old sores, and
bury the hatchet, thinking "Oh, well it's Christmastime,"
and renew old friendships for old times' sake.
Then there is the making of memories.
We who are older .and perhaps a little weary now,
look back on the happy Christmas "hack home;" of the
family re-unions and thi- fun and good time of a generation ago. We would not be without them, and we in our
turn make Christmas for our children such, that they will
look back upon happily in Uie years to come.
Tnke this mellow influence from n cold, cruel world,
which leavens tlie passing years and what have we?
Families would drift apart, rifts widen, the bulwarks of
home would weaken, and selfishness wnlk unhindered.
And as year follows year, and we celebrate tbe coming
of the Holy Child, we recall his message—
"Peace .... goodwill .... reaching far as man
is found!" —Mabel Kay
I went to sleep one cold, dark night,
And dreamed that Santa Claus had died,
There was let Christmas gay and bright.
And all the chllldren cried and cried.
N'o stockings by the chimney hung.
No holly berries glowing red,
No silvery  bells had gaily  rung.
The night that Santa Claus was dead.
No Christmas trees with lights aglow,
The stores were dark and dull and grey.
No sleigh bells ringing o'er the snow,
To welcome in the Christmas day.
There was no laughter in the street,
No dolls wtih curly flaxen hair,
No skates for eager hoyish feet,
Or beads for little girls to wear.
And then I woke—and by my bed,
A little child with eyes so bright,
I knew that Santa Claus wasn't dead,
I only dreamed it in the night.
And oh how glad I was to know,
That there was still the happy mirth,
With bells above the glistening snow,
And Christmas Dav upon the earth.
And so my dear, this happy night,
With stockings hanging softly there,
We must keep Christmas glad and bright,
For Little children everywhere.
And cherish well this best of days,
A shining miracle apart.
For Christmas always, always stays,
If you keep it in your heart,
GETTING out a newspaper ia a fascinating,
task, but it is also a difficult one stated the
Redwood (Min.) Gazette, in a story recently
published. No other job that comes to mind is
quite so tasking, so hurried or demands greater
pains. From the moment a newspaper is started,
be it either daily or weekly, the work is carried
on under pressure, a race against time. Put your-
ielf in an editors position—could you do it?
"Could you, for example, spell correctly, off-hand,
the nanus of a large percentage of the residents of this
town? If you could do that, could you write their initials
correctly without resorting to the telephone directory or
other authority?
"Could you write down, offhand, the names- of your
city officials, your local school board, your county officials
your lending state and national officials, getting all the
names, initial- ami offices correct?
"Could you gather the threads of u story from half a
dozen persons and weave tbem into nn intelligent, readable account the first writing?
"Could you write seven columns of material of 1200
or MOP words each in two or three days, week ufter
week year after year, and when you hud finished those
seven, pound out two or three columns more before press
"In writing a headline, could you cull to mind in a
moment enough synonyms so that you would not repeat
the main thought in the same words?
"Could you decide in a minimum of time what size
headlines,and what portion in the paper be given to each
of the 75, Kin or more stories that might go into your
"Could you decide in a moment, or exercise 'snap'
judgment, on the dozens of questions a newspaper man
must face daily and get u majority of them correct?
"We won't tire you—but if you could do these few
Ehnple things anda thousand and one more difficult ones,
vou should be a newspaper editor.
"The point we wish to make is thut one can produce a
good newspaper only after continual diligent study and
years of practical experience . You have Heard dozens
of persons' remark thut they could turn out a newspaper,
and a good one, too, a bit better, in fact, than the one
they are getting. That is not true, unless they have gone
through the years and study tbat a good newspaper
demands of its milkers,
"Were it not for the peculiar fascination associated
.vith newspaper work, there would be no newspapers, for
there is no greater taskmaster, and money alone would
be far too scant compensation."
Gift giving at Christmas time is, or ought to
be. nothing more than a manifestation of the
Christmas spirit, which is unselfish, seeking only
to make others happy. Everyone who has been
moved by this spirit has realized the truth of the
saying. "It is more blessed to give than to receive"

the  cougar,  man  and  beast   fought.   COAST FISHERMEN
Beait Overtaken Swimming in Upper
Will the Cougar show fight? Mr.
Jacob Arnett. custodian of the Mosquito Harbor mill says they will. He
ought to know as he emerged from
a fight with (ine last Thursday morning which reads more like a page
from a fiction story,
Mr. Arnett left Tolino to visit the
mill twelve miles away. While pro
ceeding up the Narrows, he saw what
at first he took to be a deer crossing
the channel ahead of him. On get
ting closer he noticed the absence of
horns and concluded that the animal
wns a big Indian dog. When almost
abreast of it. however, the creature
turned towards the little launch and
emitted a snarl, baring its huge fangs.
Ran  Over  Beast
Instantly Mr. Arnet threw over
the helm anil opened the throttle to
run the cougar down. He struck
the beust and, as he rode ovor it could
bear its claws tearing at the planking.
The animal came up several feet
astern, with flaming eyes and snnrl-
ing jaws and with its paws lashing
the water. He swung tbe launch
around and again made for the cougar, meanwhile tearing up a four-
foot plnnk that served for a seat.
With amazing dexterity in an animal that rarely takes to the water,
the cougar avoided the speeding
launch as it hore dnwn upon it and,
reaching up a huge paw, caught the
gunwale of Ihe little launch.
Boat Ran Wild
Now followed a terrific fight. With
the   boat   circling   at   top   speed   and
rocking with the action of the wavci
and  the h<
The brute raised its head to the level
of the deck and bit the hard woud as
if it were cabbage stalk. The man
belabored it with the board but, nlthough he struck with all his might
the cougar persisted in its hold on
; the gunwale, biting nnd tearing and
snarling and screaming in its fury.
The only thing that saved him, Mr.
j Arnet declared, wa.; the inability of
i the cougar to obtuin a hold with the
daws of its hind paws on the planking.
Scalped Animal
He continued to pound away at the
beast's head, and one blow took away
most of the seal)) of the animal. For
fully ten minutes he continued to
beat the beust, and then it let go. But
the cougar was not done yet. As thc
boat whirled nround on its mad
career, Mr. Arnet seized the tiller to
bring her under control again, and in ;
doing so the launch came close to thei
cougar, which was swimming it ready'
and eager to renew the fight, With I
its teeth bared it came to meet the |
boat. The man met the charge with'
the board, and smashed the big cat
on the face, knocking out several of

The meeting went on record as being opposed to the opening of Cow

argued that these areas should be
reserved for sport fishing purposes.

When a Feller Needs a Friend
Making your profits
THOUSANDS of men have
"cashed in" nn their holdings after years of unremitting
toil and have re-invested enly to
lose their profits in unwise speculation. Life annuities provide
an invincible protection against
such calamities.
In May, 1928, a group of North
Dakota business men sold their
extensive holdings. While the
deal was pending they decided
to re-invest the proceeds in life
annuity contracts. After investigation they paid the Sun Life Ass*
urance Company of Canada over
three million dollars in premiums
for annuity contracts. They were
attracted by the safety and convenience of these annuities and
the large return.

Association, 184. College St., Toronto, will lie answered personally

For some years we have known
how to prevent diptheria. Considering the* fear which parents have of
that disease, it might havi* been expected thnt they would hnve made
evetj effort to secure protection for
their children.
No such effort has been made hy
thc patents. Diptheria is a rare disease in only comparatively small
nuinbor of communities, where,
thanks to the persistent efforts of the
health authorities, a large percentage
of the parents have had theri children immunized against diptheria.
In Canada, many thousands Of children have received the injections of
diptheria toxoid* a harmless substance, which, wo tnay .say, posseeos
magi: priw(QL\ U is harmless, and is
able, when injected in 'the body, to
canst  the body to proihicfe protective
rce • againsl  diptheria.' -..
When these protective forced have
been produced, the individual is irii-
niuni.ed against diptheria. We speak
of the injecting of diptheria toxoid
into the body as diptheria Immunization, 4
The process is a simple one, and
ymi:v children are selilli.m, if ever,
ill following the injection. This is
one icason for doing tlu* immunization in early life, but-fl is not the
chief one. Early action V important
became diptheria is a disease which
■ occurs in its greatest severity among
little   children   between   the   sixth
1 month and the fifth year of life.
We can say with assurance that
: diptheria should go because we know
■ how to makeit disappear'. It has been
[proved over and over again that it
' can lie driven out by the use of diptheria  toxoid.    There  is no  reason
I why in the year 1!)29, over nine hun-
' (I red lives should have been sacrificed
j tu this one disease in our country.
I There is no reason why ten times
that number should have suffered
I from nn attack of diptheria which
permanently injures many of those
who recover from an attack.
.Qtipthcria continues its deadly
work in our midst, killing and maim*
i ing bur children because, individual-
j ly, we fail to take the necessary ac-
| tion to protect our little ones from
the attacks of this disease.
\Vt may admire and applaud the
results of medical research. We may
sny ho.w,wonderful it is that diptheria should have been added to the list
of preventable, diseases. What we
think or sny, however, will not save
one life;,it is what we tlo that counts.
. Diptheria toxoid, if left in a bottle
will nut. protect the child; it must be
injected into his hotly.and thus given

Statistics of race track hotting 111
Canada for ID30 issued by the Department of Agriculture at Ottawa
show a marked decline in the total
amounts wagered at race track-; during the :12 days racing season. Decreases in figures amount to $7,57*V
<j9!>, or 17 per cent as compared with
The decline in betting was move
marked in Quebec than In other pans
of Canada. For the six tracks which
form ihe Quebec circuit this year do-
creases amount to 4 per cent; foi the
eight tracks in the Ontnrio circuit the
decline was only 15 per cent; the five
tracks from the British Columhf
circuit showed a decrease of 17 per
cent; and in the Prairie Provinces the
decline amounted tu 15 per cent.
Gate receipts at practically all
the race track meetings showed an
appreciable falling off. The decrease
in attendance corresponds very closely to the amount of decrease in betting. The total gate receipts for
1930 were $l.y;l8,4DK.84 as compared with $1,5.35,467.69 in 1929, a decrease of 18 per cent.
Racing representatives retained j
from the piiri-mutuel pools a total of
$2,657,059.25, while the total amount
paid in prize money to winning horses
was $1,722.(196. In other words, ap-
proximately 4;I per cent of the total
receipts from the gate money in the
pari-mutuel percentages was paid out
by the racing associations.
Man Killed
At Deep Bay
Norman Prest, a half-breed from
Chilllwack, met instant death from a
%\m shot while duck hunting at Deep
Bay on Friday evening. It would appear that the deceased, who was using
a single barrelled hammer gun, hud
been .standing with the butt of his gun
resting on a slippery cedar lon and
that the gun had slipped causing the
cocked hammer to come In contact
with the log and firing the gun. As
the gun slipped the man apparently
fell forward against the barrel as the
charge hnd entered the abdomen and
coursed upwards to the chest causing
instant death.

Wedding of Interest
At Pavilion
Imperial Pavilion Scene of The
Happy Union
A new use was found for the Imperial Pavilion at Royston on Saturday
evening when it was the scene of a
happy wedding which united two of
the pioneer families of the Comox Valley, the principals being Sarah Gertrude, eldest daughter of Mr. and Mrs.
H. Carter, and Thomas Harrison, eldest son of Mr. and Mrs. Thomas Piket,
of Denman Island. Thc ceremony
took place in the reception room of the
pavilion and was perfo.rmed by Rev.
Mortimer W. .Lees, of the United
Church, Courtenay.
The bride was escorted to an arch
from which was suspended a large
white wedding bell, and given in marriage by her father, to the strains of
the wedding march played by Mrs.
Herbert Oreen, an aunt of the bride, at
the piano, and Wallace Carter, brother
of the bride, violin. The bride was
gowned in cream crepe de chine, trimmed with silk lace, and wore a bridal
veil with traditional orange blossoms.
She carried a bouquet of yellow, white
and mauve chrysanthemums. She was
accompanied by Miss Jenlne Harrigan,
as bridesmaid, who wore a gown of
pink satin with large hat to match and
also carried a bouquet of chrysanthe-

During the signing of the register
Mrs. Norman Battersby sang "I Love
After the ceremony, a reception was
held in the pavilion when sixty-five
friends and relatives sat down to a
bounteous supper. The supper room
was artistically decorated with palms,
ferns and flowers and centering the
table, which was also decorated with
beautiful flowers, was a large three-
tier wedding cake.
At 9:30,, through arrangements made
by Joseph Idiens, the genial proprietor
of the pavilion, a Vancouver broadcasting station congratulated the bride
and groom and again the strains of the
wedding march were heard, this time
over the air. In appreciation of which
Mr. and Mrs. Carter have .sent a small
contribution to the Santa Claus fund.
A feature of the assemblage was the
presence of three generations from
three different angles. On the side
of the bride were her mother, Mrs. H.
Carter nnd her mother's mother, Mrs.
S. Oreen. On the side of the groom
were his father, Thomas Piket and his
father's mother, Mrs. Bruce; also the
groom's mother and her father, H.
Many beautiful and useful gifts testified to the popularity of the young
couple throughout the comunity.
The groom's gift to the bride was a
crystal necklace, to the' bridesmaid a
white gold pendant and to the best
man a set of gold cuff links.
After the reception Mr. and Mrs.
Harrison Piket left on a honeymoon
tour to Vancouver and Seattle and
upon their return will reside at Royston.

P.E.Ps. Lose Both
Games at Ladysmith
The P.E.Ps. girls* and boys' basketball teams journeyed to Ladysmith on
Wednesday and although otherwise
they had a very enjoyable time and
were royally entertained by the Ladysmith teams, lost both games, the
former 25 to 5 and the latter 31 to 11.
Those who accompanied the teams
down report that the boys' game was
lost through their inability to get the
ball into the basket. They had plenty
I of opportunities to score but could not i
! connect. Their floor work and combin- j
| ation work wns good, in fact a Uttle ■
I better than that of their opponents.
j but it is scored baskets that win games.
1 All were loud in their praise of the
sportsmanship of the Ladysmith play-
■ ers who play for the sake of the sport
and not for the express purpose of
winning games.
