A committee consisting of Mrs. A.

Tomlinson appeared before the school
board on Wednesday evening and presented two petitions requesting the
board to retain the services of the

that the appointment of children

Mr. Atkins thought that the word
monitor could only mean a senior
pupil. That was the Interpretation
placed mi the word by the principals.
Mr. Colpitts was a good teacher and
he asked the board to take steps to
retain his services.
Mrs.  Haggen said  that     she     had

coolness toward the hoard on the

the board revised salaries. He had
even heard that the teachers had

('Life   and   Work,'  thc   Church   of  Scotland   Magazine)
Strange tales reached us in the
trenches. Humors raced up and dowu
that MO-mile Hue from Switzerland
to the sea. We knew neither the
eource of kthem nor the truth of
them. They came nuickly, and they
went (itiickly. Yet somehow I remember the very hour when George
CaBey turned to me with a queer look
in his blue eyes, and asked if I bad
seen the Friend of thc Wounded.
And then he told nie all he knew.
After many a hot engagement a man
in white had been,seen bending over
the wounded. Snipers sniped at him.
Shells fell all around. Nothing had
power to touch him. He was either
heroic beyond all heroes or he was
something greater still. Tbis mysterious one. whom the French called the
'comrade in white,' seemed to be
everywhere at once. At Nancy, in the
Argonne, at Soissons and Ypres,
everywhere men were talking ol him
with bushed  voices.
But some laughed and said the
trenches w™re telling on men's nerves. I, who was often reckless enough
in my talk, cxcluimed that for me
seeing was believing, and that 1
■didn't expect any help but a German knife if I wus found lying out
there wounded.
'I was  Shot.'
It was the next day that thinge got
lively on thiB bit of the front. Our
Mg guns roared from sun-
riBe to sunset, and began
again in the morning. At uoon
we got word to take the trenches in
front of us. They were UOO yards
»way, and we weren't well started
till we knew that the big guns had
(ailed in the work of preparation. It
needed a stout heart to go on, but not
n man wavered. We had advanced 150
yards when we found it was uo good.
Our captain called to us to take cover, and just then I was shot through
lioth lege.
By God's mercy I fell in a hole of
some sort. I suppose I fainted, for
when I opened my eyes 1 was all
•lone. The pain was horrible, but I
didn't dare to move lest the Germans
.should see me, for they were only 50
yards away, and I did not expect
mercy. I was glad when the twilight
came. There were men in my own
company who would run any risk in
the darkness if tbey thought a comrade wns still alive.
The night fell, and soon I heard a
stbp, not stealthy, as I expected,
but utiiet and firm, as if neither
darkness nor death could check those
untroubled feet. So little did I guess
what waa , coming that, even when I
na* the gleam of white in the darkness, I thought it was a peasant in a
white smock, or perhaps a woman deranged. Suddenly, with a little shiver
of joy or of fear, I don't know which,
1 guessed that it was the 'comrade
ib white.' And at that very moment
the German rifles began to shoot.
The bulleta could scarcely mise
such a target, for he flung out hif
erms as though in entreaty, and then
drew them back till he stood like oue
of those wayside crosses that we saw
<ao often as we marched through
France. And he spoke. The words
sounded familiar, but all I remember
was the beginning: 'If thou hadst
known,' and the ending, 'but now
they are hid from thine eyes.' And
then he stooped and gathered me into hU arms—me, the biggest man in
in the regiment—and carried me as
if I had  been a child.
i 'I Must have Fainted."
I must havc fainted again, for I
woke to consciousness in a little cave
t>y a stream, and the Comrade in
White was washing my wounds and
binding them up. It seems foolish to
say it; for I was in terrible pain, but
I wns happier at that moment than
ever I remember to havc been ln all
my life before,  I enn't explain it, but
it seemed as if all my days I had
been waiting for thiB without knowing it. As long as that hand touched
me and those eyes pitied me I did
not seem to care any more about
sickness or health, about life or
death. And while he swiftly removed
every trace of blood and mire I felt
as if my whole nature were being
washed, as if all the grime and soil
of Bin were going, and as if I were
once more a little child.
'He too hud  been  Wounded.'
I suppose I slept, for when I woke
this feeling was gone, I was a man,
and I wanted to know what I could
do for my friend to help him or to
serve him. He was looking towards
the stream, und bis hands were clasped inl prayer; and ,then I saw that he
too had been pounded. I could see as
it were a shot-wound' in his hand, and
as he prayed a drop of blood gathered and fell to the ground. I cried out.
I could not help it, for that wound
of his seemed to mc a more awful
thing than any that bitter war had
shown me,
'You are wounded too,' I said
faintly. Perhaps he heard me, perhaps it was the look on my face, cut
he answered gently, t'This is an old
wound, but it has troubled me of
late.' And then I noticed sorrowfully
that the same cruel mark wason his
feet. You will wonder that I did not
know sooner. I wonder myself. But
it was only when I saw His feet
that I knew Him.
'He  will   Come   for  Me  To-morrow.'
'The Living Christ'—I had heard
the chaplain Bay it a few weeks before, but now I knew that He had
come to me—to me who had'put Him
out of my life in the hot fever of my
youth. I was longing to speak and to
thank Him, but no words came. And
then He rose swiftly, and said, 'Lie
here today'by the water. I will come
for you tomorrow. I have work for
you to do, and you will do it for
In a moment he
knocked oft their feet and severely
stunned.! That no more serious injury was done was probably due to
the fact that much of the electric
charge was grounded, in the water
before reaching the inside of the
tunnel. As it was the chief injury
consisted of a severe jarring and a
few bruises. The engineer in the compressor house a hundred feet away
was not injured. The shock was felt
in the Monashee internment camp
which is situated a.'quarter of a mile
from  the  mine.

that the mayor has been telling a
story about how a hoy was
treated, The story is false. Imagine
a boy six or seven years old being
accused uf immoral conduct.
Lastly.— A letter of this length
would hardly be complete without a
conclusion. There are a few other
matters that 1 might have referred to
such as the fact that one of thc
principals was told of the reduction
in  salaries and  the dismissal    of    the
principals   m the street on thc morning  of  the  day following  thc     board
meeting;  ami the fact that information was given by a Chinaman   that
he received from    a     member of the
board  as to  their    probal Ie  line      of
action..  Hut enough  has been tfatd to
prove   ii y  contention   re  the     other
side  of the question. There is   noth-
ing   in   thll  whole  trouble  that      we
would fear in     a    full investigation.
Personally  I would  welcome the   op-|
portunity  of  appearing  before  a    responsible third psrty and taking   up
every  point at issue. We regret that
Hie board have not acted openly and
fairly  in the matter.    Any complaint
that comes tothe  board  or to      any
parents should be given to the prin- j
cipal of the school for investigation, i
Until   this  is  done  there i6 no    sense j
of justice in blaming     a    man     for
what     he does not even hear of.      A
good  deal has been     said about the
children ol the public schools of this
city.  In  ray judgment they    compare
favourably  with  any  town in  Rritish
Columbia.  During my term here,     I [
do  ne.it  recall  ever  seeing  any  act   of
discounts).     either     during     school
hours or outside of school hours, nor |
has any ever heen  reported toi me.  I ■
s ippose if one    went about     looking
for such they could  be found.    Where
could they    not be found?     But one
thing certain.—the pupils of the public schools d'e mit deserve to be rated in public for their misbehavior.  A
good  deal has been said about     discipline.      I   know  the  average  man's
idea of discipline is a liberal  applic.i
tion of the birch rod.  (This may   ex- '
plain  the selection  of  birch  for     ornamental   shade  trees  for  the school
grounds.) But to    the conscientious
teacher  who bus the highest  welfare
of the pupils at heart,    every     cas
•mist  be judged     on  its own  merits.

To any one who has the good ol
the sch.i'ds of Revelstoke at henrt.
the recent action of the school loan',
is deplorable. Leaving myself out ol
ceensideration, I am clad the people
appreciate true worth, if t.. board
does not. I s-iy this fully rei Ul I
that tho storm of Indienation thn*
has heen arnuspd has heen on behalf
of Mr. Colpitts, who ins given six
years of excellent service to the
-.crk her->. But he has I ■ •- I re then
justified. Truly "v x popull, vox
Dei." it may he thnt "the mills ol tl e
gods .-rind slowly" but "they erind '
exceeding small." As f• >r myself the
action of the board has not c.est me
five minutes worry. ind If I might
presume to give a word of ad-.
any would be principal under tl -
sent board it would be this —"Never
rn any iccaston venture an opinion
of yeiur own unless you know it to
Ide with that  iil  the I iard."
Finally.—One wi rd more, re the reduction in salaries. If 1 were remain- i
ine I would te. this. Rut    I i
wish  to make a statement  that     any I
ine can  verify. Taking into account
the co«t of living in  Revelstoko, the
salaries   without   thi    di crease    are
lower than any     City  In  R:it,e-    Oo
lumbia,     I' is more than a decrease
.   (5 per month. In most  '-uses it   is
In to $15, When one remembers
that under the decrease some of   the
I ai bers will be    getting     160    per
and   speii.ling   ■;:;• of it   for
necessary  living  expenses alone,      he
tan only  wonder bow  they will     invest their     surplus     cash  since the
slump  in real    estate.     A published
statement  of the     teachers'  salaries
along  side of those of other civic   officials would  he  interesting.  A  statement of why Revelstoke cannot aflord
y as much as other Cities might
accompany it.     I   know there     arc
i lenty teachers—thai   they could   be
had for $50 a month.  S,i could     thc
'Mtnadian  1'noiflc  railway  net  a  cental superintendent for $2fl0 a month.
However, I trust   that the other teachers  have  not suffered  on   account of
the supposition that  they hnd    nny-
to do with  the  letters sent   to
iard.  It  is en iiii-h tn make     a
• any teacher on either

nothing whatever to dn with any ar-

teams. It was decided that this
should be done and that a new
schedule should be drawn up for the
four remaining teams. The gnmes
which have been pluyed shall be
counted  in the  teams'  percentage for
