ii pleasure resort ior themselves, and
also furnish sufficient attract ion to
the tourists to entice tbem to turry
a f.w days to enjoy the scenery surrounding their 'itv
The tiist effort put forth ln this
direction bj the city was in thc con-
Htrntain uf a puny tiuil leading
from tbc Cltj to lhe summit of
Mount Revelstoke (Alt. cl60) Later
a am.ill cabin or runlet was built at
thc to|i. which was equipped with
st.eie, liunkB and a minntity ol cook-
Ing utensils, During the summer
months members ol the residents
iivniieii themselves ol the opportunity of using this Shelter, and would
often upend a week or more en"7rathe  Invigorating  mr    and      mntrliless
scenery there iiinciosrt.
(it Ihis paoked up tents and other

conceived of building a motor road

The natural attractions uf the district were sufficient to induce tbe
provincial government to mate a

opened up tot traffii in tbe spring

Scrutinize Estimates-Reductions Not Feasible
The school bourd estimates .vere
carefully scrutinized at a joint meeting
of the school board aud city couucil
la Id at the hiirb school ou Wednesday evening and the unan'imous ton-
cluslon was arrived at that tbey
were incapable  ot  reduction.
Alter the joint me.'ting bud concluded the BCho .1 board met and appointed Ambrose T. Boyle us vice-
principal of l cntrul scbool in place
of Mr. Ross who has resigned. Mr.
Boyle who is now at Ferguson is a
Canadian, 22 years of age and will
assume his new position on March 1.
Previous t.i the joint meeting Roy
li. Wheeler who 'is managing the
Chicago Tribune's great European
war pictures explained that be hoped
to be able to exhibit the pictures in
Revelstoke. He descriljed the pictures,
touched upon their genuineness and
educational value- and usked for the
patronage ol tbe school bourd. Jt
was ibe,ded to cl ise '.lie schools hall
uii hour earlier on the days tbat the
pictures will be shown tu enable the
children to attend the matinee performances,
H. Manning, ch irman ol the school
board, in opening tin meeting said
that nothing, gave tbe board greater
pleasure than to meet the council.
Tbe board wished to work ia bar
iiiniiy with the council, it had hoped
to reduce the e tre.ate-, this year by
'i.t a ucw high school teacher
would probably be necessary irom
August 1, and this would ma e a
c nsiderable cut in the saving.
equipment would also be necessary.
It the board could reduce expenses
without injury tei the work ol the
BChools it - ad to do so.   In
i st.  the  boi e  for  econ
omy and after reducing expenses of
ten noticed memej : Ing wasted a.,
the city in other directions.
Mayor Foote thought that the sug
gestion that the council should meet
the school bi ard has a . uni one.
There had b« n in the past friction
between the two bou s    en
• i.e i would be to remove it. It
was a pleasure to meet the schooi
board and be believed good results
would follow. He had examined the
sib...•! board estj I md did not
see bow tbey could be reduced. Tbe
city had magciiiirent schools and
many teachers and expenditures were
oeci ii.      There    had been
comment on the teachors salaries but
In did not think that tbey were higher thun paid elsewhere, it would be
a in below those of
other place:-, if that was done othei1
cities w.eiiid obtain the best teachers.
The Central school needed a new
roof,   new   floors   in   the   upper  runins
and other t pairs. The citj finance
committee had met Mr. Pratt, the
banker. He had tnld the com
mittee that it must be very econo
mical and that if it was so the bank
would finance the city for its actual
necessary running expenses. There
must 1 rants this year. In  1918

hundreds of re.I hearts ami various
wall panels of s;is an.l snow shoes,
and thronged with guests. The members were all dressed in white gowns,
and looked chic with a red heart
pinned on each arm. Whether these
hearts were their own, or someone
elses', was a subject of general Inquiry, but wus not divulged to the
public. Many be.iuiful gowned ladies

and gallants liy the score. Music.

this altogether delightful party
>broke up, and St. Valentine was honored indeed, by this most bril.'.ant
anniversary.
Another of those delightful socials,
that Mt. Cartier I.O.F. has been putting up of late, was held in Smythe's

drawing a number of the audience to
the circle, at the close of the social
Five people .ill guests of Court Mt.

took tbe chair, aud opened tbe social
with a book guessing contest, the
winner ol tbe most correct hooks, to
be presented with a beautiful box of
chocolates. After s. me very exciting
incidents Mr. Aman declared MrB. E.
Pond tbe winner. A comedy act re-
1 resenting the word "Illiterate" in
three.' different scenes was put on by
lour members of the louge, under the
eye of Mrs Aman, who is a weli
known genius in that line. It certainly was very funny and caused much
bmuseraent. Mr. Hadden being a dead
brat with Miss J. Little, in guessing
the representation. A band selection
entitled "Walt/. me Around, and
Around," by th" Riverside orchestra
and under the able leadership of Miss

Have there been nny motion pictures actually taken on tho firing
line during the present war is a
question thnt can now be answered in
the aftirmattve. The Chicago Tribune
with characteristic Yankee cutanea;)
overcame the opposition that all motion photographers have encountered
by going straight to Belgium and
placing a proposition before them
thnt was irresistible. Thc Tribune
undertook, if their operator was permitted to work at the front, Ihat
they would exhibit the motion pictures obtained throughout the States
; and Canada and give SO per cent of
their receipts to the Belgium Red
i Cross.
I To the Tribune's intrepid stall
'photographer, Edwin Weigle, who
i had proven his courage in many daring commissions, wns entrusted the
task which in danger encountered
O'imiillod the most hazardous employment given any soldiers.
Weigle's success is now well known.
The several thousand feet obtained
gave to the world the first motion
pictures of actual fighting—the first
tc show in thrilling reality soldiers
falling before the enemy's fire, homes
being burned, machine guns in operation, mighty cannon in action, build
ings boing shelled. the dead nnd
wounded being pulled away from
ihe firing line. Weigle was frequently
not over fifty foot from the unfortunates who wore shot down as the
actual  pictures were being tnken.
Tn witnessing these pictures one can
understand the awful horror of the
wnr. the utter sadness of the situation in Belgium almost ns vividly as
if nn the actual .ground.
The Mail Herald hns arranged to
bring these most remarkable pictures
to Revelstoke, which will f>o shown under our auspices in conjunction with
the Chicago Tribune. The exact days

Frederic Keller, of Greenwood, B.C.
representing the B.C. Copper compnny, haB made a favoratte report
on the Highland Valley copper, mines,
near Ashcroft with the result that
the claims have been bonded on a
two and a half year lease for $100.,-
000'. A substantial payment has been
paid the owners. This comprises the
Sunson-Chateway-Wnrd-McAbce group
A lease of this duration should give
the prospective purchasers ample opportunity to test the mine in n 'cry
thorough manner. We understand
machinery will bo placed on the
ground at an early date.—Ashcroft

Harry Hanson, of Poplar, who was
in town the other day, stated that he,
and his partner have commenced operations on n galena claim back of
1'oplar. They started in where an
open cut had been made by someone
who had been prospecting on thnt
ground and with tho first shot opened up about six inches of nice looking galena. According to information
furnished liy S. H. Connors to a
Kaslo resident, the new company he
represents is prepared to expend a
considerable amount on dredging operations along the upper reaches of
the Lardo river in the vicinity of
Poplar. The new dredge will operate
on a steel hull and will bc four times
thc size of the one that has heen
worked with during the past two
summers. It will have the best
known methods of handling the big
boulders that proved such a hindrance to the Buschner dredge. The
scon-1 of operations will be on some
placer ground close to roplnr.—

Don't
imagine you can advertise when you like
and obtain returns all the time. Constant
dropping wears away the hardest stone —
and the consistent advertiser is the man
who wears down indifference, prejudice and
opposition, both on the part of customers
and competitors.   If you
Hesitate-
you are lost. Jones said he didn't need to
advertise, business was so good. Then, later
he said he wasn't doing much, couldn't afford.
Now Jones is out of business. Effect follows
