conduct tending to associate the German cause With lawlessness of
thought, suggestion or deed against
'life, property and order In the United
1 States is in fact an enemy of that
very cause, and a source of embarass-
'iient to the government, notwithstanding anything he or they may believe to the contrary." What the German government says in this para-
graph is perfectly and obviously true,
but its assertions come rather hard
on the faithful Germans wbo have
bail to take the risk of doing the dirty work.

this means a call for approximately
25,000 volunteers from this province.
All told, lint isb Columbia has already contributed ahout this number
of soldiers so that the additional 26,-
000 now required is in proportion t.i
the province's share of the first quarter million men raised In the Dominion.
Tee seen, ji new battalions in British Columbia will call for vigorous
recruiting efforts but the men arc available and thc enviable recruiting record which the province has established during the war leaves no room
for doubt as te. the future. The determination and ability of its yoUEIg

the volunteers which are needed by
the empire tei win the victory without which liberty cannot be made
secure will ensure that tin call will
be at Bwered.

City.
In the last issue of tlie Revelstoke
Review we notice a letter of criticism
in connection with tbe city school
I oard signed by a party who bas not
the courage to sign his name,
Now, Mr. Pro Bono Publico, we
wish to thank you for your compliments   in   connection   with   the    mo/al
standing of our schools and tins has
not been accomplished without a
great deal ..f work trom both the
teachers and the board.
Then again think of our economies
in purchasing wood. Where we were
paying $6.00 per cord we now pay
$3.0'0. Is it not this particular fact
that hurts vou the most''
Our statement showing our economic management will lie handed to you
from the city clerk or our secretary,
which will give yon some idea of our
year's work and as for other Informa
tion you may wish to secure you can
bave that any way you wish either
througb the press or on the platform
We are proud of our year's work.
Vie are thankful to orr teaching staff
and all who hnve beet' any assistance
in making our schools the success
that they now are, after coming
through a few dark days.
Now. Mr. Editor, we would like to
have my letter addressed t" you
signed by the writer. With regard to
Fro Bono Public.i calling us Kaisers.
is not the biggest "kick" in the loss
.■; wood contract that saves the public over $100.00' per year?
We nrefer dealin: with men who
sign their names to documents, etc.,
rot cowards. Pro Bono Publico says
"smash the machine."   if tbis is the
an we think he is, if he had his
way it his price be would smash the
city.

54th battalion arrived here and has
taken up 'in art ers in huts near the
old Vernon camp mutes, the 47th.
The Royal mail steamship Sa'io'iia,
Cunard hue. gave the Kootenayans
in room for criticism as her seaworthiness, although the food   served   on
ho il Was, to say the least, greatly
Inferior to the i 'anadlan camp fare.
The train trip to camp was featured by greal receptions by people all
along the route. At one city the
mayores ai I a committee provided
coffee and for  the oflicers     and
men of thi  ■" Ith,
Through th kindness ol the soldiers' mess ..' the 35th (Toronto) battalion, the 54th was served with a
nice hot una! upon its arrival at the
(amp.
Bramshott occupies a position geographically very similar to the Ver-
non mobilization camp. Three small
towns, Liphook, Hazelmere and
bramshott are situated within three
miles of the camp. The troops arc
ensconced In long, low buildings about
50 by 20 feet, termed "huts," each
containing a platoon or about flO mer.i
Stoves make the quarters very com-
fortable, excluding the dampness and
enabling the men to keen clothing,

Me Ms are - srved in a huge mess
loom. where mess orderlies, detailed
daily, servo their comrades, Australian matte.:., good old English roast
beef ind Canadian pork are some of
i lie Itei es   m'the bill of fare.
The drill commences with an hour
period after breakfast of strenuous
physical stunts. From in until 12
o'clock squad, platoon, c impany and
lattalion drill goes on and during the
afternoon distance judging, range
work, trench digging, bomb throwing,
semaphore signalling and other of the
- ltifarious things winch the Kootenayans must learn before going to the
front are carried on under the in-
truct Ion ol • xperlenced men.

A six day period of leave granted

Christies Observed at
Presbyterian Church
Christmas was fittingly observed iu
the Presbyterian church on the
Sunday following Christ mas,
loth the music and the addresses bc-
Ing appropriate to the occasion. The
anl bem by the choir was much enjoyed, and Miss McKay's solo '''0 Thou
That Tellest Hood Tidings," was well
sung and greatly appreciated. Messrs.
baker and Hay and Miss McKay and
Mrs. Maker Bang as a quartette "God
go I.oved the World" and their ren 1-
cring of this beautiful selection was
vcry much enjoyed by all. During the
olfertory Mr. Brean played the "Hallelujah Ch. ms."
lu the evening Rev, .1. W. Stevenson took as bis text, Luke 2 : 7,
"There was no room for them in the
Inn." Among Other things he said: al-
thougb our Saviour was born in the
royal city and in fulfillment of prophecy vet there was no room for
Mini. He had to be born among the
lowliest things of earth, and the angel chair chose bumble shepherds for
their audience when they announced
that wondrous birth. But not alone
to these did God tell the glad news.
Wise men had been guided by a Star
ind meeting the shepherds, both worshipped at the .same shrine. The
shepherds saw no star, the wise men
beard no song yet God was guiding
both and brought tbem to the same
Savious, Sei today men come to Jcs-
us by divers ways—sonic are won by
the appeal to intellect and others by
the appeal to the heart. Angels and
star alike are the Anger-posts of God,
nnd the paths meet at last at Jesus
feet. But, alas, bow true it is today
that there is still no room for Jesus,
lie is crowded out of Mien's lives. But.
although men do not make room for
Him, He is With them m every act of
life.
"Every cruel  thought  and plan
Of  the  cruel  heart   ot   marl
Tho'   but  whispered  He can bear."
In hia closing remarks tbe speaker
urged bi< hearers to make room for
Jesus iii the bome. in business, In politics, if He were given His rightful
place, a greal transformation would
(nine in the life of the community.
-*iit before He can be given His place
in these spheres He must lirst find
room   in  the  individual  heart.
"Behold 1 stand at the door nnd
knock." Make room for the royal
eiiest.  let  ("irtli receive ber king.

Arras Is An
Unburied City
By  Richard  Harding  Davis.
In northern France there are many
iiuried towns and villages. They are
buried in their own cellars. Arras is
still uninterred. She is the corpBe of
a city that waits for burial, and day
by day the German shells are trying
to dig her grave. They were at it
yesterday when we visited Arras and
this morning they will be hammering
her again.
Seven centuries before thiB war Arras was famous for her tapestries, so
famous that in Knglnnd tapestries
were called Arras. Now she has given
her name to a battle, to different battles that began with the great bombardment  of October a year ago and
each day since then have continued.
On one single day, June 26, the Germans threw into the city shells in all
sizes from 3 to 16 inches and to the
number ot ten thousand. That was
about one for each house. This bombardment drove 2,700 Inhabitants into exile, of which number 1.2C0 bave
now returned. The army feeds them,
and in response they have opened up
shops that the shells have not already opened, and supply the soldiers
with tobacco, post cards, fruit and
vegetables from those gardens not
hidden under bricks and cement. In
the deserted city these civilians form
an inconspicuous element. You can
walk for great distances and see none
of them. When they do appear in the
empty streets they are like ghosts.
Every Bay the shells change one or
two of them into real ghosts. But
the others still stay on. With the
dogs nosing among the fallen     bricks

and the pigeons on the ruins of the
cathedral, they know no other home.
As we entered Arras the silence fell
like a sudden change of temperature,
lt was actual and menacing. Every
corner seemed to threaten an ambush.
Our voices echoed so loudly that 'Unconsciously we spoke in lower tones.
The tap of the captain's walking
etick resounded like the blow of a
hammer. The emptiness and stillness
was like that of a vast cemetery and
the grass that has grown through the
paving stones deadened the sound of
our steps. This silence was broken
only by the barking of the French
75's in parts of the city hidden from
us, the boom of the German guns in
answer, and from overhead by tbc
aeroplanes. In the absolute stillness
the whirr of their engines came to
us with the steady vibrations of a
loom.
STRANGE TICTURES.
Under our feet were shell holes tbat
1 ad been recently filled and covered
over with bricks and fresh earth. It
was like walking upon newly made
graves. On either side were cellars
into which the houses had dumped
themselves, or, still balancing above
tbem, were walls prettily papered,
bung with engravings, paintings, mirrors quite intact. These walls were
ioofless and defenceless against the
rain and snow. Other houses were
like those toy ones built for children
with the open front. They showed u
bed with pillows, shelves supporting
candles, books, a wash-stand with
basin and pitcher, a piano, a reading
lamp.
In one house four stories had been
torn away, leaving only the attic,
sheltered by the peaked roof. To that
height no one could climb, and exposed to view were the collection of
trunks familiar to all attics. As a
warning against rough handling, one
of these, a woman's hat box, had
been marked "Fragile." Secure and
serene it smiled down 60 feet upon
the mass of iron and bricks it had
i-urvived.
In     other streets it was the   front
that     was intact, but when our cap-
jtain opened the street door we   faced
a  gaping cellar.    Nothing  beside      remained.   Or     else we  stepped     upon
creaky     floors that  sagged,    through
rooms swejit by the Iron brooms into
1 vast     dust     heaps.   From these protruded wounded  furniture; the leg   of
a table, the broken arm of a   chair, a
headless statue.   From the debris   we
picked     the     many little heirlooms
1 souvenirs,  possessions thnt  make     a
home.   Photographs with written   inscriptions, postcards     bearing     good
| wishes, ornaments for the centre taV
I le, ornaments for thc person, images
of the church, all crushed, broken and
stained.   Many    shop  windows     wo-.-e
still dressed  invitingly as they   were
when the shell burst, but beyond   the
i goods exposed  for sale was only     a
deep hole.
The pure deviltry ol a shell no one
can explain. Nor why it spares a
looking glass and wrecks a wall that
has been standing since thc twelfth
century. It loves a shining mark. To
whut is most beautiful it is most
cruel. The Hotel de Ville which was
.counted among the moBt presentable
in the north of France, that or.?e
rose in seven arches in the style ol
the Renaissance, the shells marked1 for
| their own. And all the houses approaching it from thc German side
thev destroyed. Not even those .Tho
c-nce lived in them could say where
they stood. There is left only a
mess of bricks, tiles and plaster.
They suggest the homeB dl huninn be
ings as little as does a brickyard.
Vie visited what bad been the brail
quarters of Cenernl de Wignacoiirt.
They were in the gulden uf ,i house
that opened upon one ol the thor
uiighfares and the floor level was 12
fc-ot under the level of the Rower teds.
To tbis subterranean office there are
two entrances, the one through the
cellar of the limine nnd the other
down stejis 'nun the garden. Thc
toad tiesteps were beams the size ol
a railroad tie. Had they not been
whitewashed tliry would look like tli"
■haft leading to a conl pit A soldier
who was ail artist in plaster had decorated the entrance to the sbalt
with an ornamental facade worthy of
any public building. Here, secure
from tailing walls and ezploilve shells
the general by telephone directed the
attack. The place was as dry, ue
clean, and aa - impact as the admiral's quarters on a shiji of war. Tho
switchboard connected with batteries
buried from sight in every part of
the untiurird city, and in an adjoining
room a soldier cook was preparing a
moet appetising luncheon. Above us
was three yards ol ccu.ent, rnfters
nnd earth, nnd crowning them, grass
nnd flowers. When the owner of thn
house returns he will find this addition to his rcHidenre an excellent re
fuge from burglars or creditors.

into the open street lletween being

front hull. The »>•■(! Ol tbe oflicer
temporarily occupying the house also
was spread in the hall and wc wero
curious to know, but too proud to
ask, why he limited himself to such
narrow quarters. Our captain rewarded our reticence. He threw back
the heavy curtain that concealed the
rest of the house and showed us that
the rest of the house had beeu deftly
removed by u shell. The owner of the
house had run away, but before he
went, fearing that the Germans might
enter Arras and take his money, he
had withdrawn it and hidden it in the
garden. The money amounted to $2,-
500. He placed it in a lead box, soldered up the opening and buried the
box under a tree. During a lull in
the bombardment he returned and until two in the morning dug frantically
for hiB buried treasure. The soldier
who guarded the house told mc the
(inference in the wny the soldiers dig
a trench and the way our absent host
dug for his lost money, was greatly
marked. 1 found the leaden box cast
aside in the dog kennel. It was thc
exact size of a suit case, as none of
us knows when he muy not have to
bury a quarter of a million dollars
hurriedly, it is a fact worth remembering. Any ordinary suit case will
do. The soldier and I examined the
leaden box carefully. But the owner
had not overlooked anything.
When we reached the ruins ot the
cathedral we did not need darkness
and falling rain to further depress us
or to make the scene more desolate.
One lacking in eill reverence would
have been shocked. The wanton waste
the senseless brutality in such destruction* would have moved a statue.
Walls aB thick aB the ramparts of a
fort had been blown into powdered
chalk, there were great breaches in
them through which you could drive
an omnibus* in one place the stone
loot and supporting arches had fallen
and upon the floor whore for 20U
years the Iieople of ArraB had knelt
in prayer was a mighty barricade of
stone blocks, twisted candelabra and
broken praying chairs, torn vestments, shattered glass. Exposed to
the elements, the chapels were openfto
the sky. Thc rain fell on sacred emblems of the holy family, the saints
and apostles. Upon tho altars the
dust ol the crushed walls lay inches
deep.
The destruction is too great for
present repair. They can till the excavations in the streets, and board up
the shattered show windows. Hut thc
cathedral is too vast, the destruction of it too nearly complete. Tbe
sacrilege must stand. Until the war
is over, until Arras is free from
shells, thc ruins must remain uncared
for and uncovered. And the cathedral
by those who once came to it for
help and guidance will be deserted.
But not entirely deserted. The pig-
cons that built their nests under the
eaves and in the belfry have now descended to the empty chapels, and in
swift, graceful circles sweep under the
ruined arches. Above the dripping of
the rain, and the surly booming o!
the cannon, their contented cooing1
was the only sound it comlort. It
seemed to hold out a promise Ior the
better days of peace.
Speaking of whiskey. We were coming home on a street cur the other
night and fell into conversation with
the conductor of the car, two other
conductors who were off duty and a
Highland Scotcher. One of the conductors said that he had a fine drink
of whiskey that day out of a non-re-
tillable bottle. None of the others
bad ever heard of a non-refillable bottle.
"Yes, you can pour it out, but not
in," said the conductor. "You can
sec there is a patent on it so that
ence the bottle is empty it has to be
destroyed. Tt stops people putting
rotten whiskey in respectable bottles"
And he told at length all about thj
non-refillable bottle and the manufacturers who turned it out.
No one was so much intereste.l as
the Celt.
"Gin ye tak a dram and ye tak
too muckle in the glass," said the
Scot, "ye canna pour her back intei
it?"
"That's it,"  said the conductor.
"Losh, rr.aun," was tbe reply, "but
yon must be a graund invention."

The IM. E. A.
and the flay
One ejf Air.erica's greatest Young
Mens' Christian Associution leaders,
Robert McUurney, recognised tlie fuct
that if young men were to be benefitted by the work of the association,
they must come under its Influence in
their boyhood days. He saw that in
the rising generation lay the great
opportunity for good work amongst
men. In the design of the New York
'Westside' building he included a
Jioys' department, practically a separate building, devoted entirely to the
'■sc ol the boys, and fully equipped
with everything necessary to the modern associatiou building. This wan
only the outset of the movement and
today every association bus a great
deal to do with work among boys. In
the larger associations there are special Moys' departments with gymnasium, pool and men specially trained
to work amongst the boys. In the
smaller associations where there is
iio special boys department the organization does as much for the boys
iis possible, using the gymnasium as
the n ain centre of activity.
In the gymnasium work for the boy
healthy exercise in the form of play
is promoted. Boys remain quietly in
school for 5 hours every day aud at
ii the boys nature must have some
way of assorting itself. Here is what
the ond i<f that time tbe active part
the gymnasium is very suitably fitted
for. In the gymnasium work the
boys have good corrective exercises,
made as interesting as possible by introducing it in the form of play in
liflerent ways. The boy's natural ap-
j.etite foi sport and coni|ietition is
gratified by the various organised
games. In short it is just what the
i oy needs in his course of development into manhood. As he develoju-f
from a little boy into the period of
adolescence into manhood the exercis-
.ind games arc changed to suit and
there is always something ahead to
be  worked up to.
In the modern schools the buildings
are equipped with gymnasiums and
•ompetecrt instructors are in charge
in order that the growing -pupils may
. ave advantage oi physical training.
It is a well known fact that a boy
■well trained in the gymnasium looks
tetter, feels better, works better,
lives better, and is short is better
than the fellow that has ro interest
In tin' physical side of his being.
It is really a very important part
ol a boy's education that his body as
well as his mind be trained. We do
t it f.ir a moment BUppose that a
toy's mind will become trained and
leveloped Blmply by letting it go as
it will without any special discipline
30 why should we ignore the fact that
the body n°eds training too.
Any e,f the Youni: Men's Christian
Association hoys will tell you that
the Y.M.C.A. emblem is the triangle,
the three sides representing spirit
mind and body. If the three sides ol
the boys triangle are developed of
■ hat   has he to  be afraid.
