To the Editor of the Mail-Herald,
Sir,—1 wonder whether Revelstoke
is going to undertake a campaign to
exterminate  the  housefly?
Otherwise some of us will he exterminated.
Everyone knows hy this time that
the house Ily is a filthy, disease
breeding pest. It hops oil the manure
p,'.c on to your butter and into your
milk. It carries to your meat the
dainty little microbes it has picked
up on its feat in its sweet meander-
ings, and you have typhoid. "Ann It
multiplies faster Chan you cau swat
it out of existence. Slaying is good,
as a local thing—but you must, stop
the breeding; and that can  he none.
Cleveland, Ohio exterminated the
fly in two years, and inspectors go
round to see if they can lind a (ly in
a shop. The women did it—hy seeing
Ihat it was done. They swore war
against tilth—in hack lanes—and hack
yards—refuse of all kinds—on the
streets and everywhere; and they
stayed with the job till it was done.
And it was done.
E very body knows it is from refuse
that Hies breed; and yet—docs Hevclstoke care? I cannot say, but. I am
writing this letter to try and Bnd
une thing is dead sure. Vou need
nover advocate Revelstoke as a tour
ist centre until you set to work in
deadly earnest tn make it so—by making it as sweet and clean as a new
pin. All recognition for the lirst beginnings .et cleaning up, hut we have
got io exterminate the fly—and got to
stop hi refuse everywhere, it must

The musical monologues in the rendering of the psalms on Sunday were
greatly appreciated. Every chair was

Bacon speaks without u note. His
memory is pheiiuiiienal. Hiiuioi and
pathos meet. He is vcry natural, and

His spending a Sunday in Rcvc.l-
t-toke is due to thc fact that Mr. Hall
introduced him to his tirst Canadian
audience four or five yeare ago. Asa
dramatic interpreter he has few
equals—<and his entnrtainments nre
always wholesome and clean—as a
hundred voluntary statements show,
of all kinds, from press notices to
personal testimonies lil c those of
Fanny Crosby and Dr. Briggs. But
perhaps the new feature since he has
been to the front in explaining the
actual developments and strategy of
a modern battle is the greatest contribution he has made. Everywhere he
leaves behind him a sense of appreciation of the immensity of the
struggle in which we are engaged and
of thc unparalleled heroism of the
British troops, from whatever part
of the empire they come.
Everybody understands now what
a salient ts and why it is weak; and
everybody understands now why Sir
John French used it uh a lure. The
work of thc Royal Engineers In laying dummy guns made of trunks of

the real guns were masked is an illustration of ingenuity, ns the laying of o pontoon bridge is of their
unrivalled coolness and bravery.

l yearning and longing of the world today  is for  peace,    he    said.     In our

members of thc great empire of Great

The world  has not   peace    because

b funeral service was held, Rev. B.C.
Currie officiating. In his short address the pastor said he would leave
the tributes to thc life, faith and labors of the deceased until the memorial servico on Sunday.
Among those present at the service
was the class of boys taught by the
late Mr. Forin.
Many went to Belleville cemetery to
witness the impressive closing rites.
The firing party was drawn upon the
roadway near the plot, while the officers stood near the grave. The religious ceremony wus read by Rev.
E.C. Currie. After the committal had
teen read, the military rites were
conducted. The order "Firing party,
volleys with blank cartridges," was
given. "Ixjud. Present. Fire" was followed by a volley from l-l) rilles.
Twice again the command to fire was
given, and two more volleyB were
bred over the grave. As the mon
stood with fixed bayonets at the
•present arms" the bugle Sounded
"The Last Post." The soldiers march
ed away and the ceremony was over.
The Daily Ontario Belleville says
"Peter McLaren Forin, from the
very tirst day ol the war, appeared
to understand how serious was the
task that confronted the British Empire. Although past thc age when
nctive service is expected, he volunteered for the first contingent, but
was not then permitted to go forward. Compelled to remain behind, he
was filled with the desire to be r.iore
than a mere spectator when vital
issues were being decided. He   there-
toro took a special course in artillery
instruction ut Kingston and qualified
for the position of captain. For several weeks prior to his illness he was
about the city canvassing for re-
cruitB for the battery and endeavoring to arouse the young men to the
need for action, And today the forces
training here in Canada for participation in Britain's war have had a
considerable number added to their
Btrength because of Capt, Form's personal work an.l appeal
"Had he been able to choose the
manner of his passing, he would probably have selected a triumphant
death on the battlefield, But having
served his country well by leading
und inducing many others to enlist
beneath the colors, knowing that he
had done his best as a soldier and as
n man, he was content, to enter into
linal rest.
"A     sinree       earnest,      s Imliirly,
Christian gentleman will long be
iiiiss'ed by his fellow citizens, A true
and noble-minded patriot has gone
to his reward."

Tapping in February, 1016
This   piace   was but   a wilderness iii
But few white men bad settled   here,
about half a score;
There was  Coursier und  Bob  Lemon,
Hilly Cowan,  Wright and Spnut,
A few more might be mentioned, some
died and  more moved out;
This place was not called  Hevelsto'-.e
back in the early days;
The old  timers called it Farwcll   for
he made the surveys,
Says Farwell    to   R. Marpole,    for
forty  thousand  bucks,
We  w.'il  sell   to you      our    townslte,
make a round-house for your trucks
Kllpatrlck he was sitting near,     he
spiling right to his feet,
Saying     the      government    gives  us
townslte free, just   one mile f ir
(tber east.
Says .1.11.  Wright to Griffith, w   cm
not build thc track,
For the beavers are     so   ,"e:y  thick,
they  dam  the  water back,
Says  Peterson a  plnn mc thinks,      I
nose jus vat I do,
He shoot, de  brutes    by      moonlight,
like de ingins used to do.
The  next  came    here  was  Campbell,
with  his little gold bug bard,
He says you want   a   smelter   here,
and we want half the land,
For this is a line townsite,   the best
one on the map,
And  we also want a bonus    of forty
thousand  cash;
They soon put up the smelter,     and
Roser cut a dash,
It only run a little while und     then
it went up smash.
They had ten  years of law suits,    it
made us all feel blue,
N'o dcedB or titles could be got   and
we all got in a stew;
When the troubles where all over, the
townsite men grew fat,
Then  Revelstoke  it  nourished  as     It
shows now on the map;
Quite eurly in our history about in
The C.P.R.  then  I.unit thc slabs cut
by old Valentine.
Charles  Lindmark    tupped    the     car
wheel.-, and  made a  merry chime,
He says I can do better tailing wood
out on the hill;
And everything went lovely until one
day he had a spiil,
fn the steep side of the mountain he
bro^e the stakes and yoite;
AeiiA Lindmark tumbled with thc wood
,       says Tom Righton what a joke;
Pays Thomas unto Charlie   do    you
think you will ever pass,
Those  words  don't sound   the   same
out here, as in the Blb'.e class.
They thought they     would    start   a
paper down  ln the smelter Voik,
With Northy .is the Journalist and be
gave them  all a shoe*;
Northy ran it independent,  and   that
did not  please tliein all,
So they ga\e him a short notice   to
make out his last scrawl;
They gave their editor a month   and
and  locked  him out next  day,
He says we'll  run    this   press    right
smart  if  you the type can set,
And every sheet will bring two   bits
and set them thinking  yet;
'i'he Kootenay maJi was printed when
the front, door it was blocked,
The editor lit   out the   back and the
company burnt the lot.
It    was    in     the     spring of '92, the
writer  said   he bet that he  would
set things     moving    around     tins
townsite yet;
There was a lot    of    discontent, he
s.i id to them don't fret,
But just  sign  my  petition,   Bind    yon
will own your homes here  yet,
It   says survey this land in  lots,     we
will build ymi here a town;
Pray   grant    request    without  delay,
and do not turn  us down,
\nd all we ask  was granted, to make
Revelstoke renown.
It  was in the year of '98,  quite early
in the fall,
That H.A, Brown and Fraser calledja
i       meeting  in   Bourne's hull;
Said  Fred to us what do you   think,
can you not see your way,
To    have     Revelstoke    incorporated,
now what have you to say;
Suys Brown this    town is scattering
and it  may  never pay,
Put   we  maj   get    a good  fat  job,  on
sonic near future day;
In  ".e.1 they  granted    it,    it    did not
please us all,
But it gave our would be spouters a
good chance in the new hall;
The good folks  they all  gathered in,
heard  what they hnd to say,
Such orators you never heard  in   nil
of Canada.
Said  Haig  you must elect  mc  mayor,
for on the whole I'm sound,
And  I will do  my blooming  best, to
keep your taxes down;
The  boys roared    we won't  vote for
you, to be the mayor your bent,
And the only thing you're tit for,     is
collecting railroad rent;
Huig said my feet nre very cold,   the
boys they  loud did  ball,
The opera  house  'taint    finished  yet,
it  will  be warmer by  next fall.
0,  What about thut snowplow  John,
will McMahon  repair the gear,
Then up spoke Robert Howson saying
one thing to me looks queer:
How I can sit in this oouncil, and I
have no use for beer,
Now later in  our    history,     and we
have our troubles yct,
This winter ull  the lights went out,
left the town ns black as jet;
Rays  McKinnon    and    McSorley    to
John Palmer than won't do,
. To let the sand and mud and things,
just stop np all our flue;
How things huve changed    in  Revelstoke,  getting better all the while,
We  hnve  churches,  schools,  societies,
nnd prettv maids thnt smile.
