The Lion Brand Make
There is no Boy's Clothing any better—there
is none so good. There is more style about the fit,
there is more work on the suit, and there are more
Hoys in Canada asking for this make every year,
The people who make this Brand make nothing
but Boys' Clothing. They have the largest and
most exclusive Hoys' Clothing Factory in Canada.
The cats all have the double elbow in the
sleeves. The shoulders are made concave and have
shoulder and sleeve pads. The collar is carefully
shaped, and, all together, looks like a fine tailored
suit.
The knickers have double seal, double knees,
double-stitched seams, and have a splendid dark
lining that will wear equal to the outside,
The prices are easy for this good make, and
the selection we show is the largest in town.
Boys, Buy the    Lion Brand."

CLEAN YOUR CHIMNEYS!!
With the help of one package of Imp Soot Destroyer
you can always have a clean chimney. When the fire
burns dull and the chimney smokes it shows the chimney
is choked with soot and liable to catch lire. Do not
spend your time taking down the pipes, using up your
energies and profane language, getting yourself, your
house and everything in sight soiled. Buy an Imp and
save this. Good for Furnace, Cook or Heoting Stoves.

CONVENTION
PROCEEDINGS
Of B. C. School Trustees Association-Important Addresses
by School Superintendents-
Valuable Resolutions Passed
The convention ol B. C. School
Trustees' Association resumed ita
sesBion on Wednesday afternoon at 2
o'clock with a full attendance.
F. W. Flunimerfelt brought up the
question of boulevards around schools
and the necessity oi having the same
placed under control and jurisdiction
of the school boards.
H. N. Coursier spoke along the same
lines: "Resolved that the case o!
boulevards round school sites be
placed under tbe control of the School
Boards who shall be empowered to
expend money on tbe same. (F. W,
Flunimerfelt,Vancouver; C. E.Hope,
Vancouver.   Carried.
Regarding tbe resolution offered by
Vancouver City Board re striking of
rate for school purposes, W.P. Argue,
(Vancouver City Supt.) moved the
adoption, seconded by W. E. Buckingham, ol Richmond, "that school
boards be allowed to strike a rate ior
school purposes.   Carried.
Full discussion arose on the question of school monies and by whom
disbursed.
Inspector A. C. Stewart, Vancouver,
gave a full explanation o( the matter
corroborated by other speakers as
being in favor of the plan, "Resolved
that Bchool monies collected by the
Council be placed to the credit of the
school board to be discussed by them.
(Flunimerfelt, Hope).   Carried.
Revelstoke Board introduced the
followiug resolution which was carried
"lhat in publishing the names of
pupils passing examinations, that
they be in alphabetical order witb
total marks obtained by each, and
that publishing the number writing,
from any one centre (or acluol) be
discontinued; and also that wbeu tbe
questions are published in the Annual
Report the marks for each question,
or part there d, be shown (Revelstoke
Board)." (H.N.Coursier, Revelstoke;
R.   6.    Joy, Nelson.)   Carried.
A lengthy discussion then took
plsce on "how the school, particularly
the High school curriculum can be
made more practical."
J. Peck, of New Westminster, said
tbat High school work should be
made to consider the 95 per cent, of
pupils who will, after leaving school,
earn tlieir liviug by manual labor.
The working classes should be helped.
Drawing, etc., takes up too much
time.
E. B. Paul claimed that the High
schools were doing work aa practical
as possible, but frequently too much
regulated by Universities.
H. Manning claimed tbat big cities
can handle the matter but smaller
ones cannot and strongly asserted
that the High school ia not doing any
practical good for children in later
life and cited many cases ol its bad
results.
Dr. Scott ol Calgary, said that leaders came from the public schools, and
facilities must he provided to place
children into professions with broad
learning for the struggle ol life. The
high school is keeping alive th: refinement culture and Btudy of children
which are essentials in the work and
success of all great men  snd   women.
Inspector Stewart said thst high
schools cannot teach (or all professions
but aim to make true aod intelligent
citizens. Canadian high schoola are
doing all tbey can to give tbe children
a general broad training. He urged
tbst tbe teaching sulfa be well paid
and good work would follow. XI
teaehera knew what each pupil intended to do when of age it would be
easier (or them to study what training
is beat and be pointed out tbat tbe
curriculum should be elastic and intelligent, teachers can put pupils along
any lines they like.
J. X. Muir, Keelera, claimed tbat
memory work, drawing, eto., was
useless and waste of time.
C. E. Hope said that the high
school was doing a good work and he
brought out many suggestions as to
how a more practical currioulum can
be arranged, suggesting that Spanish
and German be included, more euclid
and arithmetic, eto.
W. McBride, Surry, claimed that a
great deal depended on the teachers
and aa Vancouver supplied moat ol
the teaehera, it waa up to that city to
give them the best training they
could. In regard to French he asserted
that 67 per cent, of  members  ol  the
Ottawa parliament make speeches in
French.
F. VV. Flunimerlelt aaid that the B.
C. school system was good, hut if
high schools were not doing satisfactory work then it was best to get at
the cause ol the trouble.
W. P. Argue aaid that our school
system compsrea very well with other
countries, but there was room Ior improvement. He explained that teachers do no: always apply the principles
right, and that a teacher's worth be
Lund be! ie he or aha is allowed to
take a class room. He showed how
memory lessons train tbe mind, and
painting aud drawing the bands and
eyes. He urged that no alphabet be
taught until after a child had been a
year at school, but rather teach the
sounds of letters.
J. J. Dougan, Vancouver, pointed
out that good teachers made good
pupils and explained that all teachers
cannot teach alike. He said that the
discussion bad done much to help
rural schools.
The debate was i.djoumed till the
next day in order to give those wbo
had not yet arrived a chance to sin ak.
F. J. Bourne then invited the delegates to a recept. n that evening at
tbe Y.M.C.A which was adopted.
A. E. Atkins, C.quitlam, explained
how in his district where two schools
adjoin, that the parents ol children
from one district, who go to school in
the other, should bave a vote io the
other district.
Insp. Stewart pointed out that this
was impossible and would mean two
votes to one person.
"Resolved, that the School Act be
amended so that people in a municipality can vote for trustee in another
municipality where there children go
to school. (Atkins-Martin.) The
motion lost.
A. E. Miller, principal of the public
school invited the delegates to inspect
tbe schools on the lollowing morning.
Tbe meeting then adjourned.

passed on to the resolution committee
Dr. Scott, of Calgary, Alberta,
addressed the Convention expressing
pleasure at being welcomed to B.C.
He said the work done here bad im
pressed him greatly. The responsibilities of the Trustees are very great
and oannot be too lrghly considered.
He relerred to the efficiency ol the
teaehera and how to determine it. He
explained that it ia really impoasible
to tell how much energy ol a teacher
is put into useful work. Some teaehera
possess more than others. In explaining how this might be determined
he pointed out that the undertaking
ol subjects fully is necessary for good
reaulta. Inaccuracy Is fatal. Teachers
will increase in efficiency for four or
five years, but probably no longer
unlesa tbey Btudy. The power ol
control over others  is essential, and

SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 21,1908
SCHOOL ELEVATION.
The visit of the delegates to the
fifth annual convelion of the B. C.
School Trustees Association has
been one ol the most important of
any such gathering held in our city.
What has been accomplished by
this convention cannot be stated in
a few words and the interchange of
broad views and wise suggestions
cannot but lead to great and far
reaching results for the benefit of
education in general. The trustee
of a school has a great responsibility, and in his hands lie the keys
of the doors of success of the coming generation in Canada. Our
future lies in our children and in
the class room are sown the seeds
of what in years to come will be
great leaders of men and women.
One pleasing feature of the convention was the keen interest taken
in the local schools and their
equipment. Revelstoke schools are
well kept, well conducted, both in
the class room as well as in the
matter of cleanliness and outward
beauty. In reference to the latter
we quote from the presidents opening address as printed in our last
issue;
To illustrate the value one locality
may receive from another, and the
energy shown by one locality in particular, I would refer tu the eicelicnt
nb t graph that the Revelstoke .School
Buard presented to us in New Westminster, in Octot-er, I'M".
The result tu New Westminster
alune hss been the beautifying and
arranging of the Central School
grounds, an enterprise that we approached with fear and trembling because of the expense, which lias been
in the neighborhood ol ll.&'X), but I
cau assure you tbat during the time
the work waa under construction, we
received nothing but encouragement
frr m every citizen wbo spoke to us
upon the subject during the time tho
work wae lieing done.
I believe it ia the duty of every
aclinol board to make the conditions
anrrounding their schools as beautiful
aa possible, aa it ia in itself an education to our young.
In regard to this it may be said
that great credit is due the last as
well as the present board   of   local
trustees, who have  so   successfully
tarried out what is in every way a
credit to   Reveletoke.     To   Thus.
Bleed   ie   due   the   real credit for
doing the actual work of   beautify-
PROGRESSIVE REVELSTOKE
What some of the Trustee Delegates Think of Our City.
Dr. A. C. Scott, city superintendent
of scboolB, Calgary, Alta., who has
heen visiting Revelstoke, attending
the School Trustees convention, when
asked his opinion of our city made the
following statement:
"One's lirst impression ol RevelBtoke is associated with the mountains
which encircle ir, with their towering
peaks ul" white reaching up iuto the
clouda. Nestling in the valley at the
gateway tu the Kootenays, it lies within reach ol the fruit land on one side
and uf the mines on all sides, and the
character ol the city and ita people is
evidently itilluenced by the situation
and environments, and the opportunities surrounding them.
"One of the first evidences of tbe
progressiveneea ol Revelstoke is seen
in the splendid Y.M.C.A. building
with its complete equipment, its instructors, and enthusiastic claases of
h.iys and men,
'* That a city ol 3,500 should erect
and equip such a building at a cost of
$35,000 and be able to report it all
provided for except a trifling balance,
and that, as well, they have erected a
beautiful school building Biirrouuded,
as it ie, by grounds which might well
be a pattern for larger places, shows
the real interest taken in the future
welfare of the rising generation, and
augurs well for the development of
the higher life of the city, intellectually, morally and socially.
" Certaiuly the atmosphere o! the
city is in fullest sympathy with the
objects of the Trustees' Association
which has been holding ita annual
convention here.
" Personally, I am glad tu express
the pleasure it has beeu to me to visit
the city and the province for the first
time. My visit has beeu fuli of profit
from meeting men from all parta of
Uritish Columbia, who are interested
in educational matters from the standpoint of the citizen and the trustee.
I could only wish that a picture of the
city and her encircling mountains, lit
up by sunahine had been granted us
1 shall, however, look forword with
pleaaurable anticipation to another
visit to the province in the near
future."
J. J. Dougan, secretary of the B. C.
School Trustees  Association, said:
" between the bucy spacea at the
leoretary'a desk I have found a atray
thought bringing into comparison
places and events. One moment I
asked .uysel! what might one think uf
Kevelstoke? Thia, aa in the cane uf
nn American couain, led me to wonder
what the educators, and citizens generally, would think uf us and our defects. It had been our fortune to
uur visit the splendid public achmil
under the efficient management of rny
old Iriend Mr. Miller.
" It was not only fortune it was incident. I must eay (now, wa were
philosophically taught by one of the
city's future great men. Three boys
iu turn were asked what they thought
of the visiting trustees. Two were
very modeat and ao did not venture a
reply, while the third said, "Oh, I
suppose they are all right, but they
ought to look after the teachers and
not alter ua boys." The hint waa
paused around and moat practically
did some of the trustees pay great
atteution, especially tu aome uf the
lady   teachers.     The   lirst   idea one
gathered was to smile at a trustee
marching up to a teacherfand askii g
if her services might be obtainable for
Surrey or some other board.
" Professional insight assured that
the schools were so well conducted as
to cause entire admiration ou the pari
of those interested in school administration.
" But, here is the crux of my opinion of Revelstoke: The citizens, the
institutions and those who are intrusted with such administration need
not feir comparison with any like
place. Not one hut ali, I need uut
say, were delight,d with ourtwodnys'
stay in your progressiva city."
Old Timers' Meeting
Editor .MAii.-Iir.tiAi.n.
Dear Sir: As 1 read with interest
the letter of "Trail Blazer'1 in the last
issue of the Mah.-H_k.ald and as I
believe the idea ol a re-uuiuu uf all
the old-timers, men and women, for a
social evening would be of very much
interest, I might suggest a meeting of
nil old-timers be held in the City Hall,
Revelatoke, on Wednesday evening
next at 8 o'clock to make arrangements Ior an annual reunion.
Yours truly,
Chad. F. Lindmark,
Mayor.

CHIEF    YOU NO, - - Proprietor I ehenge
failures in teachers are often due to
their being unahle to bold tbeir
classes. The remedy is difficult. The
power to teach ia important and to
give ■ clear explanation, and impress
children, be tbey alow or quick, A
good teacher will bold every child
and ahould ask himself or herself if
tbe class really baa caught tbe thought
and if the pupil did the best for himself. A teacher muat not loae the eye
of one pupil and must bold tbe attention of all. Resulti in pupila examination are not a, good teat of a
teacher's efficiency, but the lact that
unruly children bave relormed and
become attentive scholars is far more
conclusive. A teacher's popularity is
a good test, but aa a true measure
must be carefully conaidered. Tbe
power uf inspiration is the most valu
able thing in a teacher's possession
and leads to higher and better results
in children. It is wonderlul and fills
students' lives. All teaehera should
try and acquire it to be really efficient.
It is a difficult problem for trustees to
determine how efficient a teacher is,
and il inspiration is there, to be fair to
child as well as to teacher. Tbe percentage system is wrong aad influential friends often help teachers to
get promotion as do also faked marks.
Boards often lay down reading courses
and teachers must pass examinations
in tbese before promotion can be
given. It is a bad policy to discharge
a . .a teacher in a burry, but it is
beat to keep them and endeavor to
strengthen tbem ii possible, but if a
teacher bas no control over tbe class
it is best to get rid of tbat teacher.
Tbe sound judgment ol superintendents and principals often
bas to decide and bere is when a good
conscience is necessary. Tbe question
can be asked, is the Normal sohool
putting a definite stamps on students
as good teachers, if not, then attention
must be paid to it. Trustees must
keep in touch with tbe children and
see how tbey act out of tbe olasa room;
if tbey behave well then much ol it
comes out of tbe good training in their
class room. In conclusion, be urged
tbat trustees should get a look at their
teachers belore engaging them and
pay attention to the fibre of a teacher's
character, for character reflects
oharaoter.
A resolution was passed expressing
tbe thanks of the Convention to Dr
Scott Ior the splendid address. Tbe
appointment of an auditing committee
was made, A. C Planta and F. Bourne
being chosen. Tbe Convention then
adjourned in order to visit the local
schools.
AFTERNOON  SESSION
At the afternoon session Dr. Robinson, Supt. of Edueation for B.C., waa
introduced to the delegates. Tbe
Nelson Board then brought in a resolution establishing a Model school in
tbe Kootenays.
W. Irvine said that tbe Interior waB
isolated from tbe Coast Normal schools
and tbat being so it was almost impossible that inteiior people can afford
to send their children down to tbem
thereby losing the training. A model
school in tbe Kootenays would solve
tbe problem of teaehera which could
be got rigbt in tbe Kootenays, instead
of paying extra expense in bringing
them from Vancouver. " Resolved
that tbe Government be urged to
establish a model school in the Kootenays. W. Irvine, Nelson; H. P. Mc-
Craney, Rossland.   Carried.
A long snd interesting discussion
arose regarding tbe medical inspection
of schools, tbe trustees feeling tbat
tbis waa necessary. Mr. Hodgson, of
South Vancouver, spoke supporting it
and suggesting a grant from the
government.
J. F. Fowler.'of Wetaskiwin, Alta.,
cited instances where medfosl inspeo-
tion has been found necessary in
Alberts schools.
Othor speakers made remarks io
line with the suggestion tu rural
schools in particular and it was 'Re
solved thst rural school districts be
assisted by tbe government to provide
lor medical inspection and tbat nicdi-
oal examination ol all school children
and teachers be made compulsory."
T. Lawson, Kelowna; A. Patterson,
Mission Creek. Carried.
A record resolution was passed endorsing tbe resolution of the Medical
Association of B. C. re sanitation, etc ,
in schools.
The Richmond board brought in
the following resolution: "That attention be called to tbe growing tendency
to (as in telephone calls) substitute
ought, or wbat is still worse, tbe name
of the letter "O" tor naught." Carried.
The Revelstoke Board brought in
tbe following resolution: "Resolved,
that Principals and Secretaries of
School Boards be notified by ciroular
ol any proposed change in the course
ol study or in the text books (Publio
Schools at lraat six months and High
Schools a year) (Revelstoke Board).
Carried.
U. N. Coursier   explained tbat tbe
trustee and teacher had no notice ol
iu  course ol studies or text
book except through newspapers which
were olten incurred. He suggested
that the B. C. Gazette aent to the
trustees notifying them of these
things.   The resolution oarried.
A discussion arose as to where the
next Convention will be held, Kamloops, Vancouver and Chilliwack delegates offering their respective cities. A
resolution deciding on Chilliwack as
the next meeting point ol the Convention was passed.
H. J. Barber, of Chilliwack, brought
in tho fohowing  resolution :
"That, injthe opinion of this Convention, in lieu ol Free Text Books, all
text books required by tbe pupils ol
public schools should be supplied by
the Department at cost price,
Mr, Barber explained that it was
better to spend the money on additional Bchools, etc., than on (ree text
books and did not think that the free
text book i.i  'I'm a good one
C. H. Strutt, Kamloops, pointed out
that tbe convention could not make
resolutions asking the Government to
do certain things and then upset them
all again.
Tbe general opinion ol the convention waa tbat the act on the part oi
tbe Government was received popularly in most places and cannot be
condemned. The resolution was withdrawn.
Tbe secretary then produced samples
ol rulers, compasses, etc., aa being
specially adapted to achool use and
obtainable from Vancouver,
H. N. Coursier then gave prices and
lists oi desks as used in the local
schools and where obtainable.
J. F. Fowler, ol Wetaskiwin, was introduced and addressed the delegates
saying tbat owing to the mixed population of tbe North West, the problem
ol education waa getting very complex.
It was necessary to educate the lowest
type ol foreigners and a difficult matter to make them good citizens. Pub
lie schools will do tbe work. He
reviewed tbe growth of education in
Alberta as rapid and instanced tbe
high interest shown by the Government in achool matters. He then
welcomed all the delegates present to
tbe Alberta School Trustees' Convention next January. It was a great
mistake, he said, (or trustees to try
and run sohools too cheaply, and
urged that handsome buildings, etc.,
be erected, witb ventilation, .light and
other facilities for healthy study. He
touched on administration and suggested that school boards be not
inconsistent in demands to tbe gov.
ernment. He explained how the
Trustees' Convention was inspiring in
its influence and concluded by
saying that the future of Canada lies
