of the boys realise bow i<illy a lmnch

time   tbey   have,   ami   ..f   course      the

is.
Classes will be formed again this
year for the ladies. The school girls
will have their own  bright   little class
and tlie senior girls will have their
jolly bunch, and will probably become fast little basketball .md volley
ball players besides u-rtting bus of
fun out of tin' dancing and gym work.
Someone has suggested that there be
a class organized for .elder ladies and
the Idea seems a good one. If the older business men for instance get so
much enjoyment nnd benefit from the
gym w.erk, the ladies would probably
do the -..-: So if a sufficient number would like to form a clnfltl n is
possible that a very successful one
might Me pun. The ladies classes wil!
take the form of n girls league this
year as they did last year, i.n ibei
ship in the league entitling one to
the gymnasium  privileges.
The usual activities in the way of
basketball. volley ball and indoor
baseball will be promoted and leagues
will Me planned. Special work will be
done      in    the  way  of  instruction  in
swimming .and life saving and every
member may be able to swim when
summer again draws near.

that there is no local market for

that the probable returns during tho

enclosing a cheque for $16.60, one
third of the prize, The prize is divided    between    tbe teacher and the
i Miss hi the proportion Of two thirds
to the teacher and one third to the
class.
The letter said that the cheque was
''one third of the lirst prize for physical training awarded to James Gordon, teacher of the second division of
Revelstoke high school from the funds-
set aside hy the local committee of
the Strathcona Trust for British Columbia for physical training prizes iri
high and Buperlor schools during
1914 16. ruder the conditions of the
competition the amount must be expended for a picture or some piece of
apparatus suitably inscribed for the
division in which  it  was won."
All awards in the competition for
prizes for physical training are made
on the recommendations of the high
school inspector and the respective
public school inspectors.
For competition among the high
and superior schools of the province
during 1914-16, thc local committee
of the Strathcona Trust allotted the
sum of $150 for physical training and
directed that this amount lie divided
into five prizes as follows: 1st. $50 ,
Snd, $40; 3rd, $30; Ith $20; 5th, $10.
The local committee also set aside
$976 for physical training prizes in
the graded and common schools of

The     prizes aie awarded to     those
r  is   which   most  nearly  meet    the
conditions of physical training outlined by the Strathcona Trust, and it
is suggested by the local committee
tbat the inspector shall allot marks

the following plan: 20 per cent, to be
alloted for discipline, orderliness and
cleanliness, the discipline and orderliness to be judged during the ordinary school-work as well ns during

being of prime importance.
The teacher to whom nn award is

"Gentlemen:- 1 Meg to   present
vou the fourteenth am.ual report
the   Revelstoke  Hospital   society,   and
regrel that the showing for tl

owing     to the universal bard times,
due  in  a  great measure   to  the  world
wide  war.   the  hospital  has  also    suffered.
The     revenue from  paying i

JJcrhapB,  under the circumstances wo
have occasion t" congratulate ourselves   that   it   is no worse.
The Medical   Superintendent's     report as submitted, Bbows a considerable falling ..ll from  last   year in tho
I number ut patienU treated and hospital .lays.
There aie but four trained nurses
on the ..tail at present, und eight probationers. Miss Raymond has taken
the place of Miss Matheson as matron. Hi'1 latter having joined the stafl
of thr Overseas Base Hospital. I am
quite sure that Miss Raymond will
prove mosl capable and efficient in
everj  way.
The Chase tal  has been closed
since last i icl ei but we are still
taking care of the Adams River Lumber company's employees who aro
i aying fees to this society.
The Ladies Hospital guild are taking every Interest In the work of the
hospital, and I trust they, or tho
citizens at largi will not forget in
the many calls on their charity, the
great need of the home institution as
it is quite as necessary to care for
the sick and unfortunati at home as
it is to care for those righting the
battle of the country.
The hospital staff havc been most
loyal, and . ne and all are doing Men
best to eel thi .Mercd conditions,
and ari ig the utmost econo
my in every way.
There have been no complaints at
our service, and all wbo have had occasion to enter the hospital have only praise for the treatment  accorded.
I bave te. tMank rou gentlemen for

The presentation of fruit and flowers to the Duke of I'onnaught by the
Womens Canadian Club was a graceful
and thoughtful tribute to Canada's
popular and pat lie die governor general. It will also serve to Impress
the name of Revelstoke upon the
duke and his stall and in other respects will be a useful advertisement
of   the  city.

USEFUL KNOWLEDGE
.Summerland Review: We teach children grammar that they may know
bow to speak correctly; arithmetic
that they may know how to calculate
correctly in their business transactions; but more Important to tbem
than either is a knowledge of the
laws of life and health, thut they
may know how to avoid disease, and
eat, drink, sleep, bathe, breathe—in
short to live correctly. This knowledge does not come by instinct any
more than a knowledge of grammar

GOVERNMENT'S USEFUL WORK.
Medicine Hat Times: The British
Columbia provincial government has
just decided to extend financial assistance to a smelting enterprise
which promises to exert an important
Influence upon the problem of zinc
production in that province and
which will as an immediate development have the efleet of placing in operation at Nelson a demonstrative
plant. Just Imagine the metamorphosed Alberta government doing
anything s . useful for the people   as
an   industry.
The  prisoners  are  interned  upon  the
hill;
Austrian and  Hun and Turk;  while
armed men
Patrol      with      steadfast  step   and
eager ken,
Stemming     the     tide of Kaiserdom ;
until
The   A.llies   blast,   the  roots   of      tbat
foul tree
Whose shade  polluted Europe many
a year,
Whose     fruits—the  widow's  curse—
Ibe orphan's tear;
Now  falls,  alas!   all  too abundantly.
At curfewbell,  I  sometimes     faintly
hear
The   martial   bugle;   visioning    that
war
(If      stagnant      trench,   and   bloody
fray   afar,
(hi     Flanders'      fields   and    Austrian
mountains drear;
Or where inviolate under     walls     of
steel
The     silent     watchers     guard  the
mighty main,
Where      British   bulwarks  dominate
again;
And hold Von Tirpitz under hatch at
Kiel.
Night     falls,  and over Bcgbies'   tri-
fold crown,
Ajipears a lonely star; emblem     of
rest
And jieace to tired nature;  grant it
best
Oh Lord, that from thy lifted throne,
I Peace may descend  a troubled world
to still.
Peace     with     an open and eternal
smile
Arrayed     to guard thc future—but
meanwhile
