District Engineer Forde Inspects
Work Done
Mr. J. P. Forde ami Mr. and Mrs.
J. Shaw, of Victoria, were camping
at Jock's Point, Lake Cumberland,
last week-end. Mr. Forde is the District Engineer for the Dominion
Government Public Works Department and Mr. Shaw Assistant District Engineer.
During tho week, the crew working on the float at the lake hnve been
replaced by an entire new crew and
the work, we arc given to understand will bo rushed to completion.
The Cumberland correspondent of
the Victoria Daily Times appears to
be all "het up" about the change in
the construction crew at the Lake
job. The change has merit, anyway, as wc arc given to understand

Cumberland Boy
Rescues His Pal
Scout Training Received in Cumberland  Great  Help
Tuesday afternon a notable deed,
and one worthy of heing honored by
the Royal Humane Society, was done
by William Frizzle, thirteen-year-old
Brechin boy, when he saved the life
of John Allen, fifteen-year-old son of
Mr. and Mrs. Charles Allen, Brechin
Road, Nanaimo.
The boys were swimming in the
little bay by the Kayama Com pany's
wharf, Nanaimo, when John, who is
just learning to swim, said he would
try and swim to the wharf, and set
out accordingly. When only a short
distance from the wharf his strength
apparently gave out nnd he sank.
William saw him come up and immediately sink again. Seeing the
peril young Allen was in, he set out
to his aid. Upon reaching the spot,
Allen came up again and Frizzle
seized him and managed to reach
the shore with his burden, only to
find Allen unconscious. It was here
that William's training as a Boy
Scout came in, for he immediately
commenced artificial respiration,
which after a few minutes of application, was successful. As a result
John Allen is alive and well and
another tragedy has been averted.

this was connected to an air fan,

It may be some days before the
remote portions of the workings have
been fully explored, according to
opinions expressed by experienced
miners who have been underground
and witnessed the extent of the caving, following the explosion.
Scenes of stark tragedy are to be
witnessed on every  hand, as wives

entrapped   men   wander   from   one
group  of  men   to   another  seeking

that  there  is  still   hopo.     And  old-
time miners belie their own convictions as  they  say  there   is still  a

main driveway. Two bodies were
recovered by workers who managed
lo dig their way "00 feet into the
mine ,and ono man was found to be
alive, thus giving rise to the hope
that others may bo living.
Rescuers  Organized
The mine is situated six miles
from Coalmont and nt an ultitude of
:t,600 feet. As soon as word reached
the town that an explosion had taken
place miners, who were off shift,
rushed to the wrecked pit-head to
volunteer assisance. As rapidly as
possible a selection was made of the
men drilled in rescue work nnd first
aid, and these were sent into the
tunnels carrying safety lamps and
canaries. They found the main driveway almost entirely blocked and aftor working for three hours oame
across the bodies of the two men.
A little farther on they encountered
a miner who was still alive and they
rushed him to the open air, where
every attention was given him.

Pressing on past thc first obstruction they found that further progress was blocked by another cave
that choked the level. At this rescue gangs are working in the hope
The third meeting this season of
the Cumberland and Courtenay
cricketers resulted in a win for the
Cumberlandcrs in a very low scoring
game played on the Wyo ground Saturday last. Cumberland lost the
toss but were put into bat by the
visiting skipper. Runs came rather
slowly and just as Heaton and Joe
Idiens were beginning to find their
way, Heaton was run out through
a marvelous throw in by Pat Ellis.
Carney followed Heaton and soon
started to score and in partnership
with Joe Idiens took the score to .'10
I before the latter was howled and
| caught by McLaughlin. Carney was
i run out after making a very useful
! 20. This wicket went down from a
'splendid throw in by Grier. Shortly
after Guy was run out on an impossible oal! by Gough. Dando arrived
late and on going into bat made two
fours and a single before being
caught out. The innings closed for
64, this being considered a poor
score and one which Courtenay
would soon top. ,
Courtenay's opening batsmen, the
j Ellis brothers faced the bowling of
Vernon-Jones and Heatton, Pat Ellis
being very uncomfortable with the
former's bowling, after milking 8
runs ho got his leg in front of a
straight one and wns out l.b.w.
Duckett followed and ufter surviving two balls was clean bowled by
Heaton. Vernon-Jones got the next
two batsmen in two balls and just
missed doing thc hat trick. The
maining batsmen could do nothing
at all with Hall's deliveries who had
displaced Heaton. the Cumberland
skip getting 'i wickets for 5 runs.
Sam Gough who had taken Vernon
Jones' place at the opposite end got
tlie last man out with no runs chalked against him. The Cumberland
bowling was very good and the only
reason the changes woro made was
on account of the great heat. Vcrn-

McMillan and a number of prominent officials of the Athletic Club had
the arrangements in hand and spared
no pains to make the evening successful. An abundance of refreshments, crackers and cheese, soft
drinks, ice cream and cigarettes had
been provided to which the boys did
full justice. To R. T. Brown went

after J. Vernon-Jones lost to .1. Follows. These two played a good game
also with the former holding tho lead

a winner Ul points to KI. J. Wilkinson and Bob Laird also played a j
close game on Monday night, the
score standing at 15 all. Wilkinson
eventually won 21-15. The surprise;
of the games so far has been the do- j
feat of "Bobby" Brown at the hands |
of Tom Carney, tho latter beating
his opponent 21-10. Harry Jackson
got his second round over ufter receiving a bye in the first by defeating J. Fellows, 21-12.

Mr. A. W. Neill, of Alberni, federal member for Comox-Alberni, which
includes the Cumberland urea, was
requested by the Cumberland Board
of Trade to act as their representative at the recent coal conference
held at Victoria, The following is
the report of Mr. Neill as sent to the
secretary of the local board of trade:
"The Hon. W. A. McKenzie acted
as chairman, showing fairnutM :ind
courtesy to all and a desire to help
the   coal   mining  industry.
"Dr. MacNaughton, M.L.A., was
present and several other Provincial
members; nlso representatives of the
various Boards of Trade, B. C. Canadian Manufacturers Association, of
the C.P.R. and the C.N.R. and pruc-
tically all the coal mine operators in
B. C.
"It was agreed by all that the coal
depression is duo principally to the
use of fuel oil.
"Various  suggestions  were  made
to remedy the situation, such as:
"1. Increased duty on fuel oil.
"2. Encouragement of the uso of
pulverized coal.
"8. The use of improved arresters
on locomotives to allow the use of
coal ih bush country.
"4.  Belter   sales   organization   to
push the sale of domestic coal.
"f>. A bonus on coal mined in B.C.
ij". That   the  Provincial   Government should not deal with or subsidize any body using fuel oil.
"I supported tho first four proposals and opposed the two latter,
"I opposed the bonusing of coal
because the American tariff requires
that any such bonus shall be added
to the duty on our coal entering the
States. I opposed suugestuon no. 0
because it is illogical and unsound
economic*. It is illogical for a government to demand that othor bodies
shall use ooal, when the Government
itsolf owns the P. G. & E. Railway
which operates solely on fuel oil It
is unsound to try and force industry
to use a method nf fueling which industry believes is a more expensive
"I submitted that tbe proper procedure was to make the use of fuel
oil more expensive or the use of eoal
cheaper, and (hen industry would,
without any compulsion, naturally
adopt the cheaper fuel, cool.
"The obvious and apparently the
only way, to raise the cost of fuel
oil, is to increase tbe tax on its importation.
"I recommend the following methods of increasing the demand foi- or
cheapening tho price of conl:
"A. Circularizing all industries in
B.C. using power, calling attention
to the advantages of pulverized coal
and to the results soon to be available of the tests of ton carloads of
B. C. coal recently made in tho laboratories at Ottawa and to the success of tho use of pulverized coal in
shipping in other countries, and encouraging its introduction wherever
'B. Investigation and development of the latest types of spark arresters so that, when so equipped,
railways will bo allowed to use coal
in wooded areas.
'C. Tho reduction of Provincial
taxation on coal. It was statod that
government taxes and dues amount
to -H5c per ton. The Province could
well afford to reduce this to help a
depressed industry. Of this .15 cents
ten cents per ton is a Government
royalty. This, of course, is only paid
on the coal actually mined. Much
better to drop this royalty altogether
and have the coal mined than to continue it und see tho conl not mined
but replaced hy oil.
In order to get a definite expression of opinion, I moved that the
Conference should ask the Dominion
Government to raise tbo duty on imported fuel oil to two cents per gallon. This was seconded by Mr. Up
hill ,M.L.A. and heartily .supported
by Dr.  MacNaughton, M.L.A.
"The Dominion Government hnve
at present a duty of half a cent per
gallon  and  the   Provincial   Government at its Inst session nlso placed \
a similar sales tax on fuel oil whicb !
it has not enforced yet,   Half a cent i
a gallon is of no use to prevent oil'
supplanting   coal.     That   has   been '
demonstrated.   Two cents at least is I
needed.    It soonied the logical action !
but the motion mot wilh almost uni- j
versal disapproval.   The representa-!
tlve of the Canadian Pacific Railway
in speaking opposition to the motion,
promised that his company would it
onee change thoir switching engines
in  the Vancouver yards back from j
oil to coal which means some 20,000
more tons of coal   from   Vancouver
Island mines.

Man Awakened by Dog
The local fire fighters have been
busy during the past few days. On
Saturday morning last the brigade
was called out to a fire in tho Now
Townsite, which was found on arrival to be a grass fire close to some of
the houses. This blaze was soon got
under control.
On Monday morning a hurry-up
cull was received from the Royston
Road, the chemical truck being taken out, but on arrival at the scone
of tbe blaze, which happened to be
the residence of Mr. and Mrs. A. R.
Stacey, nothing could be done to
save the structure. Mr. und Mrs.
Stacey only moved down to Iheir
ranch property last Thursday and
intended staying there for a short
time, and with this in view did not
take down a lot of furniture, but
had with them the moro treasured
articles, all of which went up in
smoke. At tho time of the fire, Mrs.
Stacey with her young son was in
Courtenay whilst Mr. Stacoy, wbo
hail been workinK night shift was
sleeping. Ho was awakened by his
dog and was greatly alarmed to discover the house on fire. An alai in
was immediately turned in from the
Royston Suwtnill and in the meantime willing helpers from tbe mill
did all in their power to save the
house but their efforts proved futile,
A bush fire started in the vicinity
of the Colliery Company farm in tho
Cross Roads on Wednesday morning

wore assisted by a number of the
Forestry department men. Up to
the present time this is the only bush
fire in the district.

FftlDAY, AUGUST 15th, 1080
The Cumberland Islander
This item appears In the news:
Bremerton's tree-sitters, Preston Leard and Stew-
art Babbit, both IB, climbed down from the tree
which has been their home since July It, iii 11:50
a.m. today and claimed the world's record with 51s
hours and 50 minutes. The boys were taken on tt
lire truck at the head of a parade to the city dock,
where they were given a plane to rise over the city
and sound. Tonight they were guests at a dance.
Prizes of suits, .shirts and other articles were to be
given the boys, and business men were making up a
purse tu present to them.
CAN* YOI' BEAT IT? Just fancy, anybody
with an ounce of grey matter sitting up ti
tree for ">18 hours. It begins to look as
though man were going back instead of forward,
If these boys had spent the 518 hours on somo
holiest to goodness sport field, giving hard knocks
and receiving them without a murmur, playing
the game for the sake of the game, it is a lead-
pipe cinch tiny would make belter citizens. Ask
any boy of fifteen years to sit still at home for
fifteen minutes and see what happens. Vet parents will allow boys to climb a tree, sit in it for
goodness knows how many hours, I'ete them when
they come down and gel merchants and other
damphools to make a show of them, go home
proudly boasting of what their boys have accomplished.
We'll venture to remark that if any boy in this
town wants to sit up in a tree in an endeavor to
beat the above record, his parents will see to it
that he will not be aide to sit down at all for
weeks. He'll be taking his meals standing up
and we are of the firm opinion it would be more
appropriate than making Ihem presents of suits,
shirts and what-not. At the present time we
have not quite made up our mind as to who were
the biggest tools, the boys, their parents or the
merchants who made so much of them. To us
they all appear to be in the same box.
A WASHINGTON editor pays tribute to the
summer picnic. ''The picnic holds an important place in the social activities of the summer season." it says. "It is good for people to get
together in this way, if only once a year. The
picnic perpetuates and keeps perfect the domestic
arts as applied to the mass production of fried
chicken, sandwiches and potato salads."
The reason "why potato salad" is obvious, or
was the other day. Dolly Varden Beach was
crowded. They had partly settled in a shady
nook under the trees. He wiped the perspiration
from his hat-band and neck and brow, and settled
back to ttwait the spreading of the table cloth ami
the picnic lunch. Rushing up red laced and out
of breath, one of the ladies of the party told of a
more beautiful spot a quarter of a mile farther on
and Dad looked forlornly over his glasses but
said nothing.
Argument wa.s unnecessary. Ma hit off down
the beach for the better 'ole and Dad lifted the
lunch basket up even with his vest and started
after Ma.
As he did so, something streamed out of the
basket without a gurgle and started several rivulets of creamy liquid down the front of Dad's
blue serge pants. Dad could'nt see what was tak
ing place below the lunch basket, antl trudged on.
There was consternation when he reached the
"other place" and Ma and Pa saw the trousers.
"That's your d-a-m-n salad, Ma," was all Dad
said. And Ma agreed it looked like it was a bit
too juicy for a picnic salad, and perhaps it potato
salad nt ight have been better.

Here are two excellent recipes for
canning beets und corn.
Canned Beet.
Use only young tender beets, Cut
off the leaves but leave about tl
inches of th*1 stem and all ttte root
in order to prevent bleeding. Boil
or steam for t's minutes. Remove
skins and pack into hot jars. Cover
with boiling water and add 1 teaspoon sugar to eaeti quart jur. Sterilize immediately for -10 minutes at
to   pounds  pressure.
Canned  Corn
Remove hu*ks ami silk and eut
from the cob. Pour on boiling
water lo epver and tiring to the ttoit.
Pack loosely in jars and add 1 teaspoon salt ami 1 tablespoon sugar
to each quart. Sterilize at once for

THIS title does not mean a thing, but it is the
only one I can think of that might appeal to
tho type who persist in talking aloud in our
local movies.
Peanut eaters are bad. Children who innocently ask questions are worse. But the adult who
turns the motion picture show into a spooning
parlor, a gossip rendezvous of a chatterfest is
entitled to the superlative "worst."
Some of them are so hard-boiled that a stern
glance makes about as much impression upon
them as tho brush of a butterfly's wing upon the
hide of an alligator. As fire-arms, poison gits,
dynamite and knives with more than a six-inch
blade are prohibited, these pests are allowed to
live and to torment their fellow men for years.

This is hy all moans a canning
year. When I say canning I refer'
not only to canning proper but tu
preserving, pickling, and jelly making.
In spite of the fact that millions ol.',
cans and bottles of excellent delicacies will bo distributed by commercial cannors, everything points to an|
exceptionally large year of good |
old-fashioned   canning  in  the home. |
Never before huve wc been so en-1
thusiastic over the value of fruits]
and vegetables in tho diet. For this
reason alone we should be anxious
to prepare a goodly quantity for
winter  consumption.
Fortunately, sugar is selling as
low a price as we have known since
liefore the war, so that this particular ingredient does not need to cause
us any financial worry.   Incidentally
fow appreciate the real value of tho
sugar usod in canning and preserving. Not only does it bring out the
flavor "l' the fruits and vegetables
but ii furnishes quick-energy food
during the winter months.
See to it that you can some beans
beets, corn and peas this year as well
as your usual amount of berries and
lowed in canning  vegetables:
1. Clean the vegetables and  pare
ii* necessary.
2. Parboil or pre-cook ns directed
in the recipe.
tl. Pack in sterilized jars.    Those
with glass tops and clamps are best.
4. Add  salt   and  sugar,  and   hot
water to fill jars.
5. Put new rubber rings in placo;

Local citizens who have heard of
J tiie results which have heen aceom-
1 plished by Sargon, will be interested
I in the announcement that this new
and scientific formula can now be
• obtained in this city.
Sargon was introduced in the Un-
: ited States in April, 1928. Since that
; time it has become a nationally-
' known, nationally - advertised pro-
' duct. Not in recent years, perhaps.
; bas any other medicine of its kind
. attained such widespread popularity,
land were it not for actual facta and
figures given out by some of the
leading drug firms of America) the
success attained by this product
would be hard to believe.
i Sargon is now being introduced in
(Canada, and a new inodemly equipped plant has been established In
{ Ontario to take care of the rapidly
growing demand throughout the Dominion.
In awarding the local agency, the
l manufaetur ers of Sargon are carry-
1 intr out their established policy of
! confining the sale to one thoroughly
I responsible and centrally located
drug firm in each city, and wherever
: introduced the Sargon store will be
, found to be one of the leading and
most respresentative. Such firms aro
always anxious and willing to co-
; operate wdth the manufacturers
, of meritorious products, especially
internationally known products of
proven merit.
Sargon was recently introduced in
Toronto, Hamilton, London und
; other cities in Ontario, and judging
from the large initial sales and the
. repeat business it has enjoyed, it
: now seems a foregone conclusion
I thai the success attained by Sargon
j in tbe I'nited Statets will be dupll-
eated in Canada.
I In the leading cities of the United
i States some of the most prominent
men of the country have been among
[the hundreds who have come forward
tn tell what Sargon hns done for
tbem, and many thousands have used
it with the most gratifying results.
Human nature is the same tbe world
over, and when suffering men and
women find a medicine that helps
tbem, they want to tell their friends
about it. und in this way Sargon is
rapidly becoming known throughout
the entire American Continent.
; The exclusive agency for Sargon
j and Sargon Soft Mass Pills for this
: city and section has bcen awarded to
j Lang's Drug & Book Store. In an-
I ticipation of the extraordinary de-
1 mand ,tbis well kown firm has just

Catch that twinkle in Bobby's eye? It's time to
drink his milk—how he relishes it! And how his
milk nourishes Bobby—and puts that sparkle in
his eyes! It's Nestle's Evaporated Milk—the milk
that has put a sparkle in the eyes of thousands of
And here's the Reason! Nestle's Evaporated Milk In just
the best of fresh cow's milk with part of the water removed—
then sealed and sterilised in air-tight containers. Add water
again and you have absolutely pure, safe milk—hut more
readily digestible than ordinary milk because the large fat
globules of the milk have been broken up into small ones
of the same size as in Mother's milk. Also, the curds which
form in the stomach when Nestle's Evaporated Milk is used
are soft and flaky and therefore easily digestible.
Use Nestlf't Evaporated Milk for Your Baby. Use it in
coffee—in cocoa—in tea. Use It In all cooking and as a
beverage by diluting wilh one to (wo parts water.
