DISPOSAL OF   STREET   REFUSE.
Editor Mail-Herald:—
Dear Sir.—P. was a source of greatest satisfaction to aU readers of the
"Herald" of Jan. 23th, to note the
matt'T of cleanliness in civic surroundings is being kept before thc
mind of the city lathers. Certain it
is, that n clean or nttra live city can
not exist where refuse, waste-pap r.
nnd garbage ot overy sort at.; per -
milled to accumulate about out-
streets and public buildings, aud even ahout our homes. This Is a 1,:
lem which every city has had to cope
with, and your proposal, Mr. Kditor,
should meet with the earnest epprov-
al of all citizens and further i! a
should not be permitted by the Revelstoke powers in tho adoption ot a
measure, so essential to the better-
ment of appear.nc c- and of sanitary
i onditions,
Wc are both )»Iens,-.l and proud to
he able to nssi rt without boast, that
Revelatoke, al the pn-s nt time, is a
markedly healthful city. On- n-'i
only look about him at people h-
miH'ts daily on the street to re ogniza
this truth. And when w,1 think ofthe
condition- in older cKie . ..f the hundreds of thousands living from day t.e
dav amidst dirt anl squa'or. With
their consequence pestilence nnl disease, we are wont to breathe a -'lent
prayer that such condition- may never obtain in Revelstoke, llut these
arc the thing-- that   huve   to  be  fought
1 agnin-t and the first essential is for the
maintennni-e of cleanly surroundings,
I     We are well   aware that  the      con-
I tagion of n single di-triet will soon
spread itself to the entire community,
, just as one diseased apple will speedily infect all the apples jn tbe barrel.
So, while conditions ftro normally
good, let in make use of su-h "ounce
, of prevention" ns is possible.   Let us'
safeguard   the   general   health   of   our
I people as vigilantly and almo-t Jealously as she D.C. Fruit Laws guard
against Infection from imported stock |
This ls a matter tbat we must deal j
with sooner or later and why not
sooner than later. The coming of the

The regulation governing the importation ol veget .tion of various kinds
into Can.i la an 1 the Dominion and
Provincial laws under which they
have been passed have been collected
in a convenient form an.l dublished
as a bulletin with explanatory notes
by lhe Domitvon Entomologist, Dr.

May Ha e Peri'tieil
Fred  May.  a cook  at Meeker's  lo»
i
glng camp,  near Tajhum,  has    been
| missing since Jan. 18 and fears     are
i entertained that he may have perish-
i
ed in  the      Kootenuy river or in the
| deep snow between Tagbum and Gran
tile.   On  Jun.  18, May,  about    whom
very little is known, lelt Nelson     on
the evening   train  for Tagbum.  When
the train      rea. h .1     gran'tj    he to'.d
those with whom he was that ho had
left  a parcel  in Nelson and  lhat     lis
proposed to walk hack and get it. He
did not rcash  lhc cily. ,
The same night Frank Phillip-, secretary of the Nelson Miners' union,
heard shouts which apparently came
from thc direction of the Granite
1 ridge and it is thought that May
may have fallen into the river.
It is suppo-e.l that he started to
walk to Nelson but found the snow
ico d.'ep nnd decided to retrace his
steps and go on to Tughum.
Vc-et rday Provincial Constable
Druce M't'lennan was despatched by j
Chief Black to make a careful investigation of tbe road between Nelson
anl Granite in case May had perished
in the -now but the officr could find
u.e trace of the missing mun. Th3
trail between the railwny camp and j
Meeker's camp has al-o been searched
with no result-.

One time dot little tailor comes fcy

umi ash ho looks aiouniit. he says:
"Let uio glf you some little advices.
Peoples ln America vhaa dceferent
Irom peoples In Sliennnny. Oafer here
nopody likes to Bit up like a crowbar

You must but some amuscineutt lu

"Do you belief I enn half some brans

■ays.
"Mnype not, but you ean get a parot
und let lilm speuk mit your customers.
A parrot vhaa always a draw. Ho
vhill beat a free lunch or a ticker. If
you like lo build oop your pcesneS3
you must look a little oudt."
Vhell, dot tailor vhaa In America
ton years und builds oop a big pees-

a parrot who vhas talking like four
old wonians. Der price vhas fccflcen

a cage und hang hi in oup, und he says
"Hello!" und "roily" und "Cracker"

"Cobbler, you may fix up does 5,lioos.
1 vhas speaking to some folks about

I talk'mil him?"
"Oh, yen. I buy bim dot he may

Dot bird he sbpenks oop ned I almost drop dead. Mit his ln-ad on one

Dot parrot he drlvfl neosneoq avbny

for onu hour. He don't say nottlnga

It vhas thirty rents to fix dot heel,
und he must wait He takes ofl his

"Ves, I vhas temperance."
"Und you dou't swear not talk poll-

"No."
"Und maype you gnea by der shurcb

"Always.'
"Vhell, I shall glf you all my custom und help you along. I vhas looking at dot parrot Can ho speak somo

mit a blanket for Iwo liourB und nobody don't see hlic but by nnd by he
Vhas forgiven. He don't say nottlngs

Olaimanl of Woiid.s Title. (( kk
New York, Jan. 28—Freddie Welsh,
according to marked e-opies of English sporting papers just received has
proclaimed himself lightweight champion of th.' world. Welsh in n long
■ signed statement in one of these pap-
1 ers declai  s that, h -■ lirst Brit-
j on   lo earn a clear right   lo the title

National Spo;1 i i • ..-. l.avinge, the
American cluinipion, ku- e-kod liurgo
out in seventeen rounds and thereby
won the world.s lightweight champion
ship.
With considerable ing tity Welsh
shows why he has recovered tho title
lo-t by Burge. In thc first place
recently defeated Matt Wells for the
championship of Great Britain and the
Lord Lonsdale belt. Subsequently
Welsh got a hard-earned decision over
Hugh Mehegan, champion of Australia, in twenty rounds nl tho National
Sporting Club of I.on Ion. On Thanks
giving Day, 1911, Welsh received a
verdict In twenty rounds over Willie
Ritchie at Yemen. California, when
the lattor was cal    I to     ke I be
place of Ad Wolgast, then champion,
who had suddenly been Incapacitated
with an attack of appendicitis.
Welsh doesn't base his claim to tho
world's title because of his victory
nvcr Ritchie before the latter had
beaten Wolgast, but he says that he
was justly entitled to the champion-
hip when Battling Nels n as title-
bolder po itivply refused to meel him

It' yon have ideas—if you can THINK—we will show you the secrets of this fascinating new profession.    Positively no experience or literary excellence necessary, No "flowery language" is wanted.
The demand for photoplays is practically unlimited. The big film manufacturers are "moving
heaven and earth" in their attempts to get enough good plots to supply the ever increasing demand.
They are offering $100and more, for single scenarios or written ideas.
We have received many letters from the film manufacturers, such as VITA GRAPH, BDISON,
KSSANY, LUB1N, SOLAX, IMP. REX, RELIANCE, CHAMPION, COMET, MELIES, Etc.,
urging us to send photoplays to them. We want more writers and we'll gladly teach you the secrets
of success.
We are selling photoplays written by people who "never before wrote a line for
publication."
Perhaps wn can do the same for you, If you can think of only one good idea e\ery week, and
will write it out as directed by us, und it sells for only $2,*), a low figure.

FLIGHTS
The   plans     as    outlined Mr. Wick-
bam provide for the operation ot daily flights between     the terminal city   c
and   the  capital,   carrying  passengers
who are venturesome enough to brave
the  dangegs of the air.   Hc will al-o
establish a school of aviation Ioi  the
instruction  of  would.he   birdmeu      in
the art ot Hying.

CLOSING REMARKS.
In closing I wish to thank my fellows olii.-ers, the various committees,
and the members of the Board of
Trade for the hearty support they
have always accordod me in carrying
out the various works that we have
undertaken during the past year,
and though I am now to be succeeded
hi tho ollice of President by another I
wish to say that I am proud of hav-
ing had the honor of holding such
otiiivuu.l thai my successor will have
my heartiest support in any matters
thai mav came before him and that
may be in the interests of our city
and su it- ni iding country.
Report adopted amid loud applause.
FINANCIAL    STATEMENT
The Secretary then submitted his
Qnan.ial statement showing a balance
of $147,  and th n continued:
I would like to mention one or two
things in regard to these matters. We
all thmk that we do not get sufficient
money to carry on an active advertising campaign, and I think we might
increase our revenue by raising our
membership feel We have fifty-four
members on the rolls now, from whom
we receive $274 per annum, if that
were doubled it would mean a matter
$550, whieh would go a long way
towards     defraying  any expenses  we
1 might wish to mak.'.    Our membership
might   also  be
membership fee-,
able parties    to
us.

A long discussion took place on the
I matter of advertising.
Mr. Scruton, by permission of the
Board, called attention to the    over-
1 lapping  between  the Board of Trade,
and the Progress Club, and the futll-
I ity  of two separate bodies composjd
of tho same people,     wasting    many
1 hours discussing exactly the       same
propositions.
1 Moved by Mr. A. J. McDonell, seconded by Mr. W. M. Lawrence— That
in future' all matters connected with
Hevelstoke city and district, be left
in the hands 0f the Progress Club.
