Coal Would Stop Coming
Into Canada
Washington, Feb. 24.—Coal producers of the United States received
with considerable anxiety last weak
reports of pressure being brought to
bear on the Canadian Government
for increased protection for Canadian coal, but subsequent despatches
from Ottawa concerning the reception of the demands from Alberta,
British Columbia and Nova Scotia are
said to have reassured American exporters.
Were the Canadian Government to
grant an increase in the tariff from
50 cents to $1.00 a ton, which it is
understood wa? asked by Nova Scotia interest:,, coal producers here believe an export of from fifteen to
twenty million tons a year would bc
stopped.

Mayor Kendall, of Port Alberni,
appeared in a new role last week
when he was announced as thc chief
speaker at the business men's luncheon. A surprise awaited the audience
who had made a special effort to bc
in attendance, as Mayor Kendall declared his subject would be "the good
and welfare and moral uplift of humanity." In this connection there
were four principal points to be considered, he said—phrenology, pys-
chotogy, faceology and intuition, und
if all men, women and children were
taught to know these they would be
better citizens, and the world would
be a better and safer place to live in.
The Mayor placed three chairs, and
said he wanted three subjects to work
on. "No", he sharply interrupted, as
lunch-eaters began immediately to
suggest names for thc sacrifice, "I
will pick them myself."
Keith C. Wiles, who at one time
was on the staff of the Courtenay
Free Press, later with the Argus, now
a resident of Port Alberni, was one
of the subjects chosen by Mayor
Kendall. The following is what the
Port Alberni News says about it:
Too Bad for Wilet
"Mr. Wiles had a great head and
an intellectual face. Take his pen
away from him, he would be a lost
man. He was ambitious, yet there
was something lacking that stopped
him from becoming a great man. If
-yhaad hr.d been filled out a
little more and his facial contours
had been differently arranged he
might have been an R. B. Bennett,
but there he was just as nature had
made him, and he could not help
himself. He was a fairly honest man.
'I don't know the gentleman,' said
John, 'but that's the truth', whereat
there was a rejoinder from the gentleman himself and a murmur from
the audience that seemed to challenge John's professed lack of capacity for personal identification."
The Shuttle badminton club entertained a number of the members
of the Cumberland senior badminton club at the courts in the Band
hall on Thursday night and suffered
defeat by 0 games to 3 and only scoring 177 points to the visitors 212.

Mr. and Mn. Robert Marshall, Royston Road, have received the sad news
of the death last week at Linlithgow,
Scotland, of their daughter-in-law,
Mrs. Matt Marshall, of pneumonia.
The deceased, whose husband was a
victim of the mining disaster last August at Blakeburn, had arrived with her
children Just liefore Christmas at her
old home in Scotland. Six children
are left to mourn the passing of both
parents. The family resided here
prior to removing to .Blakeburn,
A typical cup-tie wns played on
Sunday last on the Recreation
Ground when the Courtenay Good-
years and Cumberland Eagles crashed in the final for the Canadian Collieries trophy, a trophy that wus donated many years ago and won about
ten years ago by Union Bay where
it hns been resting ever '.ince.
The game on Sunday.was a hectic
one from many view points but the
finer points of soccer were entirely
forgotten, due no doubt to the eagerness of both sets of pis vers.
The teams lined u; prompty at
2:30 with J. Thoburn in charge. The
first few minutes were ir- Courtenay's
favor, a couple of goal '^icks resulting. Piny soon veered round but it
wan early to be seen that football was
almost entirely forgotten, the players evidently being bent on getting
the ball away, the result was that
very few .real good moves were witnessed. Neither set cf forwards
showed any signs of ever finding the
goal, although it must be said that
the Eagles had the better of the exchanges with Grier in the Courtenay
goal bringing off one or two good
saves. Courtenay, however, came
within an ace of scoring when the
home team left back passed back to
his goal keeper, the ball almost rolling across the line. Both teams were
trying hard for the opening goal and
heavy charging became quite frequent. Stant, the home inside left
appeared to have a special grudge
against the visiting goalie und was
repeatedly impeding . On one occasion after the goal keeper had given
him the slip, Stant chased Partridge
who wns travelling towards the Cumberland goal, charging him heavily in
the hack. Referee Thohmn warned
the home forward who took the referee's remarks to heart and was a
good boy for the rest of the half. The
breather arrived with a blank sheet
neither side being able to score. The
home team had a slight advantage in
the first half and but for,.the excellent work of Grier would'have ffifcfi
at least one up. Just before half time
the Courtenay goalie saved three
good shots in as many minutes and
was given a big hnnd for his work.
The second half was very similar
to the first with neither side showing
signs of scoring. Gibson bad several
chances but took first time pots at
goal, all his efforts going high over
the bar. One shot which came from
the home right almost beat Grier but
with a mighty fine effort he placed a
difficult shot past the post and immediately afterwards dropped on one
of Jock Campbell's near the foot of
the post. After thirty minutes of
play in the second half, the Cumberland left travelled down the field.
Stant got possession, beat the back
and was making tracks for goal Grier
left his post to intercept thc inside
left with the result that hoth went
down and during the scrimmage the
ball was lobbed in front of goal for
Campbell to open the scoring. The
game became faster until thc close
and just four minutes from time up.
Bickle stumbled in the penalty area,
handling the ball nt the same time.
From the spot kick, Searle scored,
putting the teams on the level once
more, and after ninety miutes of play
the score was still tied.
Extra time of fifteen minutes ench
way was ordered. Both teams tried
hard for the lead and better football
was witnessed during the overtime
period than at any period of the
game. Both goals had narrow-
escapes but it wus not until thc last
half minute of the second overtime
period that Campbell scored the winning counter. Immediately following
the close of the game .Weir of Cumberland and Auchinvole of the Courtenny team tangled. One or two
blows were struck before the plnyers
were separated.
Mr. Thomas Graham presented the
trophy to the captain nf the winning
team, with a few brief remarks.
It was a hectic struggle with the
home team having a slight advantage
all through. As the Eagles have already won the Neill cup, this makes
the second piece of silverware to
adorn the club's headquarters.

Ascertain City's
Borrowing
Powers
Electric   Lighting   Company   Versus
City Case Briefly Reviewed
At the regular meeting of the City
Council on Monday there were pie-
sent in addition to His Worship Mayor Maxwell. Aldermen C. J. Parnham, J. Ledingham, J. Williams, W.
Henderson, W. P. Symons and D.
Bannerman. Very little business
came before the council and after
passing Kills nnd accounts amounting
to $732.40, reports of committees
were received which showed all departments to be working very satisfactorily.
The mutter of the sewer connection at the residence of Mr. R. Abrams Lame up for discussion when it
was resolved to charge "Mr. Abrams
with last year's tux for the privilege
of the connection and instructed the
city clerk to collect the tax from
now on. The collecting of the tax was
dropped in a former ctiy clerk's term
but the council thought it unfair to
expect Mr. Abrams to pay all the
dues since that period as it was entirely the fault of the former city
clerR.
A communication was received
from the solicitor for the city in the
Electric Light versus City case with
reference to the developments to date
and the registering of certain documents with the proper authorities.
In speaking of the decision ht
dov& ~ftfrpOT "fif"^^ Ap
peal, Mayor Maxwell said, "the decision has been a distinct shock to
some people, but we have got to see
this thing through. At the price set.
?74,000.(10, I am of the opinion that
we can easily take it over and carry
on, but I feci that if I were the head
of u private company I would be in
favor of taking this caso to the highest court in the land. It is the ratepayers we have to consider, however,
and we cannot spend as perhaps some
of us would like to." Several of the
Aldermen entered into a general discussion with Alderman Symons asking some questions about the case,
whicb he was not quite clear on. He
also advanced one or two suggestions
which will be considered by the council. At the end of the discussion
it wns resolved to instruct the city
clerk to write the Inspector of Municipalities, Mr. Robert Baird and enquire the extent of the borrowing
powers of the city.
Before the meeting adjourned, Alderman Henderson brought up the
matter of stop-signs in the city. He
said that many motorists were disregarding the signs and he thought
the City should prosecute all who
were caught breaking the traffic law.
The city clerk who also acts as chief
of police was instructed to get as
much information as possible on the
matter and report at the next meeting of the council. The Chief of Police was also instructed to warn all
nnd sundry to keep off the boulevards, especially at this time of tbe
year, as n groat deal of damage could
he done t0 tho growth if people weie
allowed to use the boulevards as u
sidewalk. The chief reported that he
had been busy chasing youngsters off
for some time and tf he saw anyone
on at all he notified them to keep
clear.
Amendments
Suggested For
Game Act
— #
Fatal Shooting Accident* Has Caused
Considerable  Concern   to
Authorities
Victoria,   Feb.   26,    Shooting  accidents  in  British  Columbia  woods
has caused considerable concern, and
authority  to  refuse gun   licensor  to
those who ,in the opinion of the Commissioner of Police are not  fitted to
carry firearms, is nne of the twenty-
two provisions in the bill to amend.
the Game Act. offered to the Legislature today  for second  reading.  The
third party insurance against   hunting   accidents,   prohibition   of   high
power rifles in wooded districts and
many   other   suggestions   have   also
been advanced to the department for
consideration,   Hon.   R.   H.   Pooley,
K,C, told the House in his explanation of the terms of the Bill. Second
reading was deferred ut tho request
of the opposition. Existing legislation
already gave the right to suspend or
cancel shooting licenses,  but  not  to
refuse to  issue  them  again   in  the
next   year,  said   Pooley.     Tbe   Bill
would make good this deficiency, and
place this authority in the hands of
Col.  J.  H.  McMullen,   Commissioner
of Police. Permission could be refused to nny one who was cureless, incompetent, or who had already taken
human life in the bush, he explained.
Seven fatal accidents through shootings had taken place on Vancouver
Island   last   year  continued   the   Attorney General, and it had become a
serious question  as to  whether the
Government should prohibit the use
of powerful rifles in wooded country.
Pit-lamping penalties,  giving  Magistrates  discretionary   power   to   fine
offenders $500 instead of a non-optional jail term were proposed, continued Pooley .stating he himself had
narrowly escaped death at the hands
of a pit-lumper one year.
Veterans Trim
League Leaders
Cumberland and District Cribbage
League Games Drawing to
a   Close
Interest   in  the  Cumberland and
District   Cribbage   league  games   is
still being well maintained nnd there
were several spectators at the Memorial hall "ii Wednesday night on the
occasion of the meeting of the Veterans and the shipping boys.    This
game was one of the most important
played on Wednesday, the wise-acres
figuring lhat if the Vets could heat
the champions and the Comox plnyers
heat the Eagles, Union Bay and Comox would once more be tied at the
top of the league, The Veterans came
through   strong   and   defeated   the
shipping  hoys  by  22  points to  14.
The tirst   two  rounds  in  this game
were  in   favor  the   Vets,  the third
round  Union  Bay took  five  of the
six  played  to  even  the  score.    The
Vets went right out after their opponents in the next round and took
five out of the six, maintaining the
lead  until   the  finish.   A   messenger
was sent out at the close of the game
to find out the result of the Comox-   .
Eagles game. After an anxious wait
Bobby  Brown  returned  antl  notified
the   Union   Bay   players   that   the
Eagles   had   beaten   Comox   by   22
points to 14. Thc win of the Eagles
helped   Union   Bay   considerably   as
the lead of two points is still maintained. Other games played included
Oddfellows versus Conservatives, the
former winning by 19 points to 17;
Athletics versus Courtenay Elks, the
latter being on  the short  end of a
19-17 score. The teams rest for two
weeks when the final games in the
league schedule will be played. The
next   games   will   be   watched   with
keen interest.    Union Bay entertain
the   Vets,   the   Eagles   the   Comox
twelve, the Conservatives the Oddfellows   and   the   Athletics   will   have
Courtenny  as   visitors.   Following  is

LOCAL FIREMEN
AND MARCH 17th.
For the past thirty-five years the
Cumberland Volunteer Fire Department bave celebrated March the 17th
St. Patrick's Day, usually with a huge
masquerade ball, The main idea for
these annua) celchrntions is to raise
a little money to enable the department to carry on. Tbe affair has always been looked upon by residents
of thc whole district, yea from as
far north as Campbell River and as
far south as Parksville, interested
people have come to Cumberland for
the firemen's annual celebration on
this day, recognizing that it was the
Cumlierland firemen's day, It was,
therefore, a distinct shock to many in
Cumberland when word was received
that the Native Sons' of Courtenay
had decided to hold a dance on March
the 17th in Courtenay. The local firemen were very disappointed at first
but havo since renlized thnt when the
A jolly party was hold on Wednesday night by the members <>f the
hoard of management of Cumberland
General Hospital Association nnd a
few friends when Mr. William Eadie,
who has been tbe honorary auditor
of the association for the past few
years was honored, being presented
with a handsome sol of golf sticks.
The Indies of the Thursday evening bridge club met this week at the
home of Miss J. E. Robertson, two
tables being in [day, Mrs. W. Hutchinson was first prize winner and Mrs.
J. II. Robertson second. Mrs. Reed,
of Powell River, was honor guest of
the club for the evening. Dainty refreshments were served by the hostess and those present included Mrs.
Reed, Mrs. .1 .11. Cameron, Mrs. J. H.
Robertson, Mrs. .1. Bennie, Jr., Mrs.
A. Maxwell, Jr.. Mrs, W. Hutchinson, Mrs. M. Stewart and (he Misses

goorl   people   of   this   district   realize
that it is essentially Cumberland's
day, tbey will flock to the annual
masquerade in  increasing numbers.
Mrs William Eadie entertained on
Wednesday evening from <> to 0
o'clock at a delightful children's
party in honor of her daughter, June,
who celebrated her ninth birthday.
The little guests had a wonderful
time, taking part in various amusing
games and contests. Prizes were
awarded Elizabeth Conn and Doris
Brown for musical arms; Elizabeth
Conn for the guessing contest ond
Margaret Shortt the peanut hunt.
Pink ami mauve decorations were
used to advantage in a pretty color
scheme. The well-laden tabic complete wtlh place cards and favors was
centred with a beautiful birthday
cake gaily decoruted and alight with
nine candles. Daintily tilled baskets
were given each little guest, happy
faces reflecting their appreciation of
thc occasion. June was the recipient
of many rcmcmbrancdi .testifying to
her popularity. Misses Muriel and
Margaret Shortl helped the hostess
in caring for the needs of the little
ones. Invited guests were Gladys

WAYS OF GETTING INTO A NEWSPAPER
WE SAID it onee before, not so very long ago
and we hasten to say the same again . . .
there are two ways of gutting into a newspaper . . . purchasing an interest and purchasing an interview. There is still another way ...
pulling the wool over the editor's eyes and getting
in for nothing. This is a very popular form oi
entry. It was pulled off on us again during the
week end. As these lines are written we have before US a letter dated February 19th and on perusing same we find that the whole letter is practically advertising two events that arc to take place
shortlv. The letter is not even signed, only initials
which our office hoy has been unable to identity.
The writer might have had the common decency
to sign the letter in full, we then would have been
able to interview the person and explain now impossible it would be for us to publish thi' 10(1
words which the letter contained and which were
purelv and simply advertising . . . for nothing.
Whilst we must admit that tlie events to be staged
are for a worth-while organization, we cannot possibly publish all that is suggested in the letter. It
would not be fair to other organizations in town.
Besides we have to pay wages, light ami fuel. \\ e
have to pay for the ink we use. the paper we print
on and many other incidentals, and we must make
a ruling that anything published for concerts,
gymnastic displays, home-cooking stalls, whist
drives, etc. where an admission lee is charged or
where the sole object is to make money, will have
to be treated as advertising and paid for as such.
In conclusion, please don't try to pull wool over
the editor's eves, it only makes him see "red",
with the result that all in the oit'ice get "hail Columbia."
hi-erh, witli wooden handle and steel s| oon shaped point,
tt has a handgrip in the upper section uf wooden handle.
The method of employment is to grasp the handle in both
hands, to push it into the ground ami then to heave with
circular motion towards the left shoulder, clearing the
ground of debris. Continue until exhausted or until tbe
required depth is reached.
The other instrument also has a wooden handle about
tbe same length. One end is inserted into a 110-inch section of sharpened steel, double pointed, lt is used in the
following manner: CJrasp the wooden handle firmly, and,
using il as a lever, raise the double pointed steel until the
whole instrument has reached shoulder beighth or higher.
Then swing it downwards, overcoming if possible the
force of gravity, passing it on the way down, When one
of tbe points sticks into the ground, give it a slight heave,
to remove earth and rocks. Then repeat until the stomach warns you it is time to knock off work.
These tools comprise the only two known instruments
for finding gold coin or silver or minerals, although
others of scientific extraction have been tried. They have
been employed since the time of the Pharoahs, although
Ihe form hus been modified from time to time. Apart
from a hopeful disposition, a strong back, a cast iron
stomach and a tendency to romance, tliey comprise the
principal stork in trade of our Canadian prospectors.
They have been used with great ^ucrtss all through the
north for generations and we have no doubt that if you
nee lire rhem and try them you will eventually, If not
now, find gold and silver coin, even though tbe minerals
should escape you.
The names of these two very wonderful but very practical Instruments are—Pick and Shovel.

LOCAL HIGH SCHOOL
AGAIN  DISAPPOINTED.
The Cumberland High School Athletes received another disappointment
this week from Powell River wben
word was received Thursday evening
from the Paper Town that the bas-
ketballers and footballers chosen to
play Cumberland could not make the
trip. Last time, fog interfered with
the teams travelling. This week word
came through thut owing to sickness
and several other causes it was found
impossible to get the Powell River
High school athletes to travel. Naturally ,the local boys and girls were
disappointed as all arrangements for
the accommodation of the visitors
bad been made. Basketball was to
have been played tonight and following tlie games the visitors entertained
at a theatre party at the llo-llo. A
football game was tu have been played Saturday afternoon and to finish
up with, a big dance in the Memorial
hall, Sunday morning the visitors
were going to he shown the district
before taking the afternoon boat
back to Powell River. .lust when the
games will be played bas not yet been
decided. The local utbletes are ready
at any time it Is up to the Powell
Riverites to name the day.
GO EASY ON THE TEACHER
BEFORE listening tothe complaint of your children about the general fiendishness of the
teachers, and getting all worked up and excited over it, it is better to reflect a little. Remember your one, or a half dozen cherubs drive you
crazy about half the time, and bear with the
teacher who is making for you intelligent men and
women out of as unpromising raw material as
you were twenty or thrity years ago. Remember
that beside* your boy, who of course everybody
knows is an angel, teacher has to contend with
that awful boy of your neighbor's and you know
full well what a terror he is.
HOW TO FIND GOLD
A READER of Tbe Northern Miner asks the editor "if
there is obtainable an instrument for the location of
gold, or silver coin or mineral". The answer is that
there are several but two of them are best known and
most widely known by our prospectors. These two are
described as follows:
One of them is an instrument standing about three feet
"ON THE JOB"
THK incident was a serious one. Two upturned cars
ami half a dozen injured persons by the roadside
indicated this at first glance.
Motorists from both directions stopped and did their
best to render first aid and get the most seriously injured
started for the nearest hospital—which was far too far
away,
That enemy of motorists, shattered glass, had rendered
its usual havoc, particularly with one of the drivers from
whose arm a spurting flow advertised extreme danger,
None of us seemed to know exactly what to do until
a mure lad pushed bis way through tbe crowd wrapped
his handkerchief around the patient's arm, slipped a jack-
knife beneath it, und then with a screw driver, which he
picked up from the ground, gave the tourniquet a few
expert twists.
It did the trick.
"Loosen this for a few seconds every ten minutes," be
said, "and then tighten it up again. You will bave trouble
if you don't."
The man was rushed to the hospital and the hoy started
back along the line of automobiles. I stopped him and
asked where hi1 hud learned to stop arterial bleeding.
"It's one of the first things a Roy Scout bus to leurn",
be said with a smile, "but I guess I will just cull it my
good turn for today. You know we pledge ourselves to
do at least one good turn daily and I was just telling dad
that I was behind time for today."
And that's all the boy had to say about saving a life.
He probably did not even realize that he had lutight a
score of adult citizens the real meaning of his organiza-

Questions concerning health, addressed to the Canadiun Medi-
cnl Association, 18-1 College St.,
Toronto, will be answered personally by letter.
WATER
Water h usually so readily obtained that we do not think much about
it. It is only when we arc thirsty
and there is no water available that
we begin to appreciate what water
means to us.
About seventy per cent of the
weight of our bodies is water. It is
not possible to state just bow much
vater we should use, but it is evident
ihat WO require considerable amount
the amount required varies depending upon the temperature and humidity of the uir und upon the type of
work whicb each person is engaged.
On a hot summer day. ;i man working
out of doors gets rid of considerable
.mount of water because be perspires
freely and the water is evaporated
'rom his skin. Such it man needs to
■ I*ink water freely and frequently in
order to replace what is lost, On the
dher hand, little wuter a required
iiy the person who sits quietly in n
moderately-heated room, nnd who
does not perspire.
.Most people do not drink wuter in
ufTicient quantities. It is likely true
; hut muny persons would feel better
ind would actually be healthier if
hey were to increase the amount of
water used. This can be done by developing the habit of drinking a glass
or two of water before breakfast nnd
between each meal.
It is not sufficient to rely upon a
sense of thirst. Thirst should be
quenched. If, however, ns is the case
with most of us, we have not attended to the natural demand for water
unless it was so pressing as to make
is uncomfortable, our sense of thirst
becomes so blunted as not to be a
;afe guide with regard to our needs
for water.
There is no objection to a moderate use of water with meals, providing that drink is not taken while
there is food in the mouth. Water or
..ther beverages must fltrre-c be used
to wash down food.
Excess is never desirable, und if
•ix glasses of water are good, it does
not follow that twelve are twice as
jrood.   There  are  certain   conditions
when excessive use of water muy be
definitely   harmful.
Our bodies require water for the
regulation of tht ir beat through perspiration. Water is also needed to secure regular und complete elimination of body wastes.
A daily wator-dr inking routine
should be established—a glass or two
before breakfast and between each
meal. There is no reason why this
routine could not be followed. It is
one of the simple rules of healthy
living, thc practice of which entails
nr, expenditure of money.
THE STITCH  IN TIME
question of cure and the time required for cure become most important
considerations.
We should never lose sight of the
fact that when the disease is diagnosed enrly, there is every chance of
cure, providing that proper treatment is started without delay and
continued for as long ns it is necessary. The chance for cure decreases
proportionately with the delay in beginning the treatment. The longer
treatment is postponed,; the more
time will be required to obtain results.
Any person who hus been exposed
to tuberculosis—-and this generally
means anyone who has lived in a
home where there has been an active
case—should be regularly examined
by a physician. The reason why such
examinations are recommended is
that if disease does occur, it will be
detected in its earliest stuges and
treatment secured without delay, The
person who, for any reason, suspects

thnt he may have tuberculosis, should
go immediately to his doctor for an
examination.
Early diagnosis is the key which
unlocks the door to cure. Early
treatment is the stitch in time which

Although remarkable progress has
been made in the campaign against
tuberculosis .this disease still remains
one of tin most powerful foes with
which tho human family has to contend.
The progress which bus been madt'
ii encouraging, particularly because
it has been realized in spile of the
fuel thai no specific means of either
preventing or curing tuberculosis has
Us yet been discovered.
The majority of persons take into
their bodies, fairly early in life, the
germs which cause tuberculosis. In
most persons, the germs lie dormant
because tin.1 powers of resistance of
the human body are kept nt a sufficiently high level to hold tbe germs
in check.
It is when the body resistance is
lowered that the dormant germs have
their chance, and they then become
active, causing the disease which we
know us tuberculosis,
Body resistance may be lowered by
many causes, among which are worry,
over-fatigue, poor diet, or the occurrence of some debilitating disease.
These conditions are not the direct
cause of tuberculosis, but tliey act as
contributory causes by lowering body
resistance and giving the germs which
cause the disease an opportunity to
become active,
If   tuberculosis   does   occur,   the

A
ST. DAVID'S DAY
AND THE WELSH
"Cas gwr na charo y wlad a'i
Maco" is an adage old and true,
which means that "hated is the man
who does not love the country where
he was reared".
The Irishman was right when he
said, "Every dacent man loves his
native land, even if he were not born
there."
In these times when the people of
all countries have migrated to this
continent, patron saint days are not
now devoted to religious ceremonies
as much as to patriotic reunions. And
why not, when there is so great cause
for such observance as the Welsh
have? Their birthplace was the
Garden of Eden. Adam and Eve
their father and mother. Their friends
the Irish, have always been a little
jealous of the Welsh, because it was
Mother Eve that flrst set the fashion
of "wearing of the green". The
Welsh have a scriptural right for Baying that the Sons of Gomer went

out and peopled the isles of the sea
before the rest of humanity lost their
original tongue, "the Cymraeg"
(Welsh), in the confusion of Babel.
We have two saints in this one month
of March, St. David, patron saint of
Wales, and the other noble Welshman St. Patrick, whom the Irish celebrate on the 17th. Why should we
not be proud ? Too often love of
country finds expression in war song
and battle verse, and patriotism is
confounded with militarism. All this
is .strenuous sometimes, perhaps it
is needful, but this is not the patriotism I would proclaim on St. David's
Day. Looking back on the centuries
we have our 'Llewelyn ein llyw olaf"
(the last prince), and many others
worthy of praise and honor:
"Their swords are rust ,
Their cause was just,
Their souls are with their God
we trust."
But for my theme (rive me the
simple strenuosity of peace, the
charm, the beauty, the tenderness
and sweetness of thi' songs of St.
David. I love the \Vnles and tbe
Welsh of music and song, of poetry,
and preaching, of liberty and love.
"Cymru Ian Gwlad y Gan." I love
to think of Caradog with his fiddle
rallying the miners and their families
inRhonddn Valley, uniting their great
voices in the blended, harmonies of
the oratorios. I revere the memory
of J. Ambrose Lloyd, Tnnymarion,
Ieuan Gwylit, composing their anthems, arranging their hymns and
conducting congregational choruses.
I love to think of Gwilyn Gwe'nt, who
from the darkness ot.the coal mine
brought summery brightness to his
people with his glees and part songs.
I love to think of the thousands who
have been borne on the swelling pinions of that noble tune "Aberystwyth" (Parry), until their noble souls
grow and expand in the very atmosphere of paradise, nnd lowly lives
have been lifted to greater heights in
the illuminating glory that shines
round nbout the throne of God. Let
others sing the conqueror who slays.
I sing the glory of the singer who
makes his brother mart forget for a
time the sordid struggle of poverty
and sways him upwards to the very
gates of heaven. "Let me make the
songs of a nation and T care not who
makes the laws". Surely the "hwyl"
has not vanished from our people;
the "Amen" still burns and flames
into glory. They call the Welsh emotional people ,but who can listen unmoved when in the Welsh language
some saintly messenger of God, his
hoary head a benediction to his children, is lining out the hymn:
"Golwg ar Galafaria draw wna
im wylo
Weled lesu ai ddwylaw wedi ei
hoelio," etc.
It as unseemly that men whose
bodies are bent with tabor, and faces
wrinkled with care raise their souls
on high and cry "glory hallelujah"?
Thank God for all those strenuous
yet simple sons of St. David.
We could name many Welsh pioneers on this side of the Atlantic,
but why enumerate them? Wherever
there has been a wilderness to reclaim, wherever there has been a desert to blossom as the rose, wherever
there have bcen mineral riches to
bring out of the unwilling rock,
wherever there has been the work of
the world's progress to perform, the
Welshman has been there. His praises
are not sung, his work is not eulogized, bis name is unknow, but he is
there.
"Fel ulltud yn hiracthu am ei
wlad". We find him on the farm and
in the mill sweating in the fierce fire
of his energy, shaping, moulding and
fitting the stubborn steel. "Pouring
his splendid strength in every blow
The conscience of him testing every
stroke to make his deed the measure
of a man." Yes, that is the fate of
the son of St. David, strenuous yet
simple. I venture to say thai when
the old "Cymro's" soul "goes marching on", that throughout Eternity,
as in his early life, he will still be a
son of St. David, strenuous yet simple and joining with joy the immortal
choir of heaven.

During that period S»0 tons of coal
were put through the retort, an average throughput of 17.4 tons per day.
For every ton put through the retort, the average yield was:—Gas

SOME VEGETABLE DISHES
By Betty Barclay
Of course, some fresh vegetables
are obtainable at this season but
others are very scarce or too expensive for the average housewife to
enjoy. Why not secure the variety
you need by preparing vegetable
dishes from the vegetables at your
command'.' Fresh vegetables or
canned vegetables can have their
flavor accenuated by using a little
sugar, not as a sweetener but as a
seasoning agent, Here are two attractive recipes:
Casserole of Vegetable
0 cold boiled potatoes
1 eup canned or stewed tomatoes
V* teaspoon pepper
1 onion
1 iii)) cooked peas
1 teaspoon salt
1   cup cooked carrots
1 teaspoon sugar
1 tablespoon butter
Slice onion and cook in the butter
until soft and yellow. Butter a baking dish, arrange cooked vegetables
in   layers,  add  seasoning and   pour
tomatoes over all. Sprinkle top with
crumbs   and   dot   over   with   butter.
Bake in a moderate oven. Other vegetables may be substituted  for the
peas and carrots.
Corn Virginia Style
2 cups canned corn
2 tablespoons butter (melted)
2 green peppers
2 eggs
2 cups milk
2   teaspoons  sugar,  salt  and
pepper
Remove seeds from poppers und
chop peppers fine. Add slightly beaten eggs to corn and milk. Stir in
other ingredients. Pour into a buttered baking dish. Bake in a moderate oven until firm. Serve immediately.
Charles Bishop, the Southam News
Bureau special writer in the Vancouver Daily Province of Thursday
has the following to say with reference to the offer of Russia to buy
farm machinery to the extent of ten
million dollars, providing Canada will
take in part payment, approximately
three million dollars worth of coal:
Ottawa, Feb. 26,—Official comment is withheld here on the proposal of Col. H. J. Mackle, on behalf
of the Soviet Government, for reciprocal trade between Canada and Russia. The chances, however, are that
no such arrangement will be entered
into.
Col. Hackle has been here much
this winter, placing his case hefore
ministers and others and doing it in
a very persuasive way. While it is
admitted that the placing of $10,-
000,000 worth of orders would be a
welcome thing, on general principles,
tho view expressed in ninny quarters
here is that in the long run it would
be had.
One instance cited is that of the
coal miners who. it is claimed, would
be adversely affected liy Soviet Importations, even though the Canadian
conl is bituminous and the Russian
coal is anthracite. There is also the
argument thnt the equipment being
bought from Canada will be used
later to intensify competition with
Canada, although this is not regarded as very impressive when other
countries can supply it just as well.
Lower Labor Standard
The apparent antipathy to resuming trade relations with the Soviet is
largely based on the undesirability of
free labor competing with forced labor and with a tendency to reduce
one standard to the low level of the
others.
The previous Russion trade mission was sent from Canada because,
while ostensibly carrying on trade
it was most industrious in the dissemination of Communistic propaganda.
abide by their contract if we did get
an agreement from them.
"The only way to deal with Russia
is universally to stop trading with
Russia", Sir Herbert said.
Coal Dealer* Opposed
Toronto, Feb. 26—Local coal dealers nre reported to be making a
strong protest to the Federal Government against the Soviet proposal
to purchase Canadian machinery and
pay in part with Russian coal. According to Arthur Hillmer of Oak-
\ ilie, president of the Canadian Retail Coal Dealer's Association, a, resolution to this effect has already been
forwarded to Premier R. B. Bennett.
Montreal, Feb. 20.—If Canada
were to accept the Russian overtures
now before the Dominion Government and exchange her machinery
for Soviet coal and gold, she would
in the opinion of Sir Herbert S. Holt,
simply be expediting her own economic ruin, since she would be supplying Russia with the means of becoming a more formidable competitor
than  ever.
The veterans president of the Royal Bank of Canada today gave one of
his rare newspaper interviews, following the publication of a .statement
by Lieut.-Col. Mackle In regard to
Russian trade.
"Emphatically we should not allow
Russian coal and wood fo penetrate
our markets. It is produced by conscript labor", Sir Herbert said. "The
Soviet allots a number of workers to
agriculture and lumber enterprises,
and says to them, 'unless you work,
we will give you no food.'
"Colonel Mackie is a representative ofthe Russian Government, and
has been for many years. He says he
is not a Bolshevist, but we have to
take his word for lhat." Sir Herbert
continued.
"Il is not merely Russian anthracite which would be Imported to our
markets, but there are screenings
also which tonics into direct competition with Nova Scotia coal. Just ask
the British Empire Steel Co. how
much it would hurt.
"Importing   Russian   coal   prevents
Canadian employment, Every ton of
conl lhey produce and everything
they produce, whether it lie wheat or
oil. is dumped under cost, Whal Is tlle
use of having a conference with Russia when they undersell us in everything and will continue to undersell
us in everything'.'     They  would  not

Yep! We've Met Thli  Kind Too
The following item was taken from
a trade journal south of the line, but
we suppose there is not a district on
earth where it could not be aptly
applied. Certainly, it gives one a
glimpse into the future of some print
shops in B. C, unless they change
Iheir methods:
"Having occasion to purchase some
letterheads, we dropped into a small
print shop and inquired the price on
1000 letterheads. Without a moment's hesitation the proprietor
quotod us a price of $4.50. While
our knowledge of prices was at that
time limited, we protested.
" 'But you can't make any money
at that price.'
" 'No, I know it', said the printer,
'but compel ii ion won't let us get any
more'.
" 'If that's the case, the printing
business must be a pretty poor business', we commented.
" 'Poor ain't exactly the right
word', he replied, as he jerked Mn
thumb toward a shabby man who was
running a Gordon press, and was the
only other occupant of the room.
" 'See thai fellow over there? Well
he works for me and 1 can't pay
him: In two years he'll own this
shop. Then I'll work for him 'till I
get it back.' "
Customer: To whal do you owe
your extraordinary succes as a house-
to-house salesman?
Salesman; To the first five words
I utter when a woman opens the
door: "Miss, is your mother in?"
Two Swetles were walking on a
railroad track, when a train came
along behind (hem. One of them was
lucky enough to jump off the track
in time; the other not being so fortunate. The survivor told about it
later:
"After I ytimp," he said, "I run a
leetle vay, and then I go back to see
'bout Ole. Putty soon I come cross
an arm tin the track, an' soon I see
one of Ole's legs. N'ex' t'ing I see
Ole's head. Den I say, 'My God
somet'ing must 'a' happened to Ole!
•isn't   it  Btrangc   that   princes  and
kin,"s ,
And  clowns  that   caper  in  sawdust
rings,
Antl common folk, like you and me,
Are builders of eternity.'
To each is given fl hag of tools,
A shapeless mail and book of rules;
And  each   must   make,   ere  life  has
flown.
A    stumbling   block   or   a   stepping
stone." —Selected.
