Moderator of General Assen
Addresses Public Meeting
-Trial of War
Rev. Dr. w. 'i'. Herridge of Ottawu,
moderator oi thu general assembly of
the Presbyterian church In Canada,
wub the principal Bpeaner ut a public meeting ueid on I'buraua) even
iny lii et, Julius chui'tu ill connection wilii thr meeting 01 th,: rresuy-
tery ol tiamioopB. Hev, j.lI. tield
ol Salmon Ann, moderator ol the
Kamloops presbytia y, occupied the
chuir und uu tuu piatiurm wan lum

service and evangelism, uud ur. Herridge. Solos were reiiduiud during the
evening uy .mis. tiiruai-ebrlggs uud
Mrs. Uoduard uud tue CnOir Veil iu
the opening service oi praise.
That these times ot stress, coti-
liict and commercial uud nuauciul upheaval practically throughout the
world are the lusting tunes ol the
■church, that men wero looting on to
nee what would be her spirit, her
Word or ber accomplishment and
thut il ulic (ound hersell uuublu in
these tinus to guide shu might lie
Btuiupcd out and cust aside, were
among the assertions of Dr. Herridge.
I'li.e church ol old, continued Dr.
Herridge wns too much to tbu other
world. This was an age when tbu
churrli should work not alone on
Sunday Imi .miU day, and on each
day do practical good, it was not
Christian duty now to loon Ior a
4-lace in tbe great beyond, it would
come in good time, but it wus now
time t,i prepare for the blissful
future. Death, be continued, would
not initiate- a new pOlicy, Christinas
would n> t be pitchforked iutu a period future and he urged his listeners
to begin to work now in thi'midst of
thu practl i problems that confronted them lay by day. it was their
duty to .,,:;[ .l.iwn lust, intemperance
ami dishonesty and to this tusk they
wore Committed here and now.
Alter touching briefly on the strile
into which the world was thrown at
present, he Btated, that he believed
the peopli ol tins ai-e ought to be
glad thej were alive at this time be-
cause bard times were being experienced and because it was a test of
the manhood and faith In God. Life
was a rift of God and intended for
nohln purposes and it was impossible
in these hours ot trial not to feel
one's duty toward God.
He touched on Grunt Britain's part
in the wnr, on the sacrifice ot the
men Bghting the battles of tbe empire in the war, but 1 elieved that
even in spite "f the King's service the
crowning si rvlce was the preaching of
the gospel  6f  Jesus Christ.
Materialism li id Invaded and re-in-
vaile.l Ibis new land and sonn times
threatened to choke its people but
the gospel and the church bad been
big factors in the tight against it
and the people had, and would now
more than ever, rise above the materialist ei view of thorns to the extent which Buch had been previously
prevalent. Thc coming of the wur
had to a great extent taught the people to reconstruct their relative values hy putting the tirst tbiug lirst
and the kingdom ol Cud Was umv he
ing put tii st. the market places and
places of arausemi nl were being closed und the people were waiting lor
strength and guidance from above
people would not emerge from the
trial tb" same; they would be com
polled to sweep  into a wider realm of
opportunity realising as they would
the great value ol tbe church and its
relation  with  the  kingdom  of God.
Britain's quarrel in the wnr he believed was n just one. Britain aad
not been lool.ing for a fight: on the
contrary she hnd done all that she
x-ould to prevent it. There was ro
quarrel with Germany ln certain aspects— thanks wore due to the Germans nnd Britishers still appreciated
what tbey bad done for the progress
amd enlightenment ol tbe world in
many respects, but Great Britain had
a ipinrrcl with Germany that, t.e-
lleved In the doctrine of "Might Is
Right."    Britain     should     not   and
would not, be felt, give up until ''is
Qermany was overthrown. He atao
Iiiiiilied on tho spirit of the k|.u*>i•>•!
Britishers throughout the land aid
their response to the rail of the Empire.
"We  may have  needed    this   chas
tiHcmont." he continued,     *'to make
its realize otir follies and    that     the

Tht twenty-fifth annual meeting of

Various [Reports Circulated —
France Generally Accepted
As Destination
When the 80th Battalion left Victoria there were suvera'i reports, all
based  un  pure supposition,  us   to  its
destination, One ol these gave the
soldiers' goal as Bermuda; another
mentioned Egypt und a third, India.
So sure were many that the authorities proposed despatching the corps
to India tu relieve some of the regulars that a wild, rumor gamed circulation, after the boats had lc.t,
that they had immediately put buck
to Esqulmalt and that the men had
re-embarked on the Empress of Aisiu
and wore on th-ir way across the
Pacific. In view ol th8so contradlc
tory statements it will he interesting
to the hundreds who huve relatives
with the force to know that it'is going through to Halifax, N.S. That is
a fact given on the authority of Col.
Ogilvie, the otlicer commanding this
military district.
A'.tlioui'h there am sumo who think
it possible that the Victoria battalion will see service in Egypt the con-
sensus of opinion among the local
military fraternity is that it will go
through the England and thence to
thc front in the north of Prance. The
report that it might be sent to Ber
muda to relieve the R.C.It. garrison
has bean discounted by Oapt. Hoad,
of the Royal Artillery, who is an
Australian and who recently passed
through the West, direct from the island fortress. His information was
that a territorial regiment was being
sent from the Old Country to take
the place of the Royal Canadian Regiment and that the latter was t.. •:il
given an early opportunity in thu
firing line.

"Un Belgian Battlefields in the
Great European War"—This is the
title of the hrst war pictures actually taken on the firing line. Thc pictures represent the lirst scenes of
actual lighting brought to America.
'Ihey were taken on the Belgian battlefields during tbe months of September and October by Edwin F.
A'eig'ie, stall photographer of the
Chicago Tribune, whose work in this
Ci nnection is making him famous.
Only  Authorized Pictures.
Perhaps the must important feature is the fact that they were thc only motion pictures which were authorised by the Belgian government.
Joseph MedUl Patterson, ol the Chicago Tribune, made an exclusive ar-
rangement with the B<slgian govern-
ment, whereby 50 per cent of the profits from thes, pictures were to be
turned over to the Belgian Red Cross
for Belgian sufferers, and thus per-
niissiuii was obtained which was re-
fused to hundreds Of persons and
* ims  who sought  to  photograph      On
the Bring line,     The pictures constitute  four of tho most e\citing   reels
ever  reviewed.
Heel i portrays Antwerp, the "City
Of Sorrows," showing the front
Notre Dame Cathedral and a panorama view of Antwerp, also
the pontoon bridge over the River
Scheldt over which the British and
R<dgian nrmies nnd the .entire population ol Antwerp, numbering 350,00!)
made their escape when tho Germans
shelled nnd burned the city. Tn mic-
roeding reels tho city ot Termonde Is
reproduced. including tho fighting
which occurred lr. nnd about tho
City, romirknbly well. An Irion of the
front Interest these pictures possess
may bo obtained from the fart thnt
tho citv of Tormondo hnd n population of Sfl.efMVi before tho war and
thnt when Wolrlo wns nbtninine his
views immedl il ily Following the »t-
tnek  only     in     buildings     remained
Battbs Depicted.
Th- battle of Alost followed by the
buttle of Aerschot uud tbc buttle of
Maliucs are also depleted remarkably
well. Scenes ol ticnch-digging, of
machine guns in operation, of Belgians ou the liriug line being shot
and later being carried ofl on bos
pita'l motor trucks ure all brought
out vividly.
In reel i thu Hooding of Licrre is
shown. This occurred whoti the Belgians blew up their own dykes to
drown the Incoming Qesrmans. The
capture ol Antwerp is likewise portrayed including the binning of tbe
city. In the last ree: some of thc
Dercest lighting ol the European war
i.- brought out just as it occurred.
The Chicago Tribune's stall photographer   was   Within   .'il!   feel,   of      this
bloody warfare when    the   pictures
were  mule. Out  ol a  little group     Of
Infantrymen among whom Weigle was
ai work eight aro shown us they
fell dead or wounded In I bree or four
minutes. The photographs) with te*
markable courage stood ins ground
until nil wore forced to retreat. At
another point, tbe Belgian inlantry is
shown lighting Its way to the (runt.
.* ftcr the Belgians hud advanced a
i undred yards a German shell     can
a  sm ill  house,  blowing it into pieces.
Flight of Refugees
The pictures wind up with the capture of Antwerp and a tremendously
impressive flight of the most unfortunate Belgian refugees into Holland.
U together, they constitute the only
moving pictures of actual fighting
i ver brought into this country nnd—
because ot the existing contract with
the Belgian government—the only
motion pictures which will be por-
mltted, These pictures nre suro to
create a groat, sensation throughout
tho world.
Through the enterprise ,,f The Mnil
llernld In conjunction with the Chl-
i"a -u Tribune, novelstoke is to have
an opportunity of seeing Wetigle's
wonderful motion pictures tnken at
l.hl front, which will i.e shown at tho
KmprcsB theatre.

To f the Editor of the Mail Herald'.
a'ir,—So far as   is publicly known,
there is only one raining property in
Revelstoke mining district making
nny effort to ship ore. (That property by-the-way wus once abandoned niter the ore in sight had been
gouged out. Ignorance ot the formation caused the abandonment.)
He would he a wise man indeed
who could give a receipt that • would
change the present condition of the
raining industry in this district.
The archives of the city council and
also thc board of trade are replete
with suggestions for the betterment
of the industry.
One heBitutCH to approach the' subject because so many of our citizens
have, one time or another, fallen,
and sunk more or less of their hard
earned capital on a prospect, or
stock in "a coming mine."
To those fellow citizens who have
111 the past, put Home of their money
in mining property without investigation and were subsequently disappointed. 1 would ask, who was at
Iiiult. Supposing a man comes to
jou with a proposition in your own
line of business, what do you do? If
you are wise and interested your investigate his proposition. If, upon
investigation, you lind from past experience and knowledge of similar
business, the proposition has meritB
to warrant, you invest your money.
The proposition may not pan out as
you expect but you have a run for
your money and have backed your
own judgment.
How many of us are in a position
to intelligently investigate a mining
One of our leading business men
made u remark to the writer the other day, which from bis standpoint
iwas wiBdom and good business, but
nevertheless opens up a wide question which that same merchant might
find useful in his own business. More
especially the credit end of it.
His remark was that "he would
'not invest in mining even if the gofd
I was coming out in bucketsfull." In
other words he would have nothing
to do with something he knew nothing about. Perhaps, by spending a
little time in learning the fundamental principals governing mineral deposits, he would be in a position to,
upon investigation, guage the amount
ol credit a property was entitled to,
should he bc asked to supply his
merchandise on time.
Mining is a business. Successful
minim; is based upon knowledge. Is
it not possible that the mining Industry in this district iB suffering

Potash in Agriculture
•For many years the Stassfurfc mines
in Germany hnve been practically the
sole source of the potash compounds
used for fertilizing purposes on this
continent. Among the evil cflccts resulting from the present war, therefore, may he counted thc cutting oil from the markets of the
world the supply of this material. Dr. Shtltt, Dominion chemist, regards this circumstance as not so
set ions as some may consider. In order to place his views before the
farmers of Canada, Dr. Shutt bus
issued Circular No. 17, of thc experimental farms, "Potash in Agriculture." It takes up the subject under
several heads and reaches the following conclusions:
"lt, is only our light, sandy and
gravelly soils that are markedly deficient in potash and thiB clement is
only specially called for by clover,
potatoes, roots and leafy crops generally. There is yet some potash in
tbe market though it will probably
have to be purchased in the form of
a complete fertilizer. We have several Canadian sources of potash available to the farmer—notabh liquid
manure, wood ashes and sen-weed—
materials rich in this uselul constituent and which are more or less
readily obtainable in many parts of
the Dominion. And lastly there     are J

If Mr. Borden and bis colle g ii -
had had tbeir way. we should be iu
the Bame happy position as Malays
today. C n we now aflord to use the
: ng age regarding the Malay gift
that  the  opposition   leadi rs  did two
crops of bituminous strata or Bhow-
ingR in drilled wells are recorded, it
seems almost impossible that there
cannot be a paying oilfield, waiting
for development somewhere between
the far north and the International
boundary. It may be in the tar-sand
country, it may be among the gentle
domes of thc prairie territory, the
sweel grass country, pr the much-
criticized Calgary tield, or one of its
unexploited northern extensions. Thtore
will doubtless be many disappointments, for much of the development
work now in progress was pre-doom-
ed to failure; hut 1 believe, and 1
think that everyone who has travelled sufficiently in western Canada will
concur, that there is petroleum in
these great territories, and that it
will be discovered and produced profitably at no vcry distant date."

Eighteen Students
Join Mining Class
Eighteen of the "future millionaires of Revelstoke" enrolled as
members of the class for instruction
in the business of prospecting which
meets at the high school laboratory
every Friday night at 8 o'clock, and
spent a vcry interesting two hours
in delving into the mysteries of
alchemy last night. It had been expected that thc course would be attended chiefly by high school students hut so far those enrolled are
persons of maturer years, 16 business men and two ladies. While only
two meetings of the dlass have heen
held the class as a body has shown
a remarkable adaptability for the
work and it is believed that by the
time the snow *is gone all the mem-
liers will be skilful prospectors and
that each will make a "discovery,"
during the coming season, that will
make Revelstoke  richer and bigger.
The following article from the Victoria ColoniBt is of interest in the
Revelstoke district which iB probably as well, adapted for goat farming
as Vancouver Island.
An 'industry for which Vancouver
Island is particularly well suited iB
Angora goat farming. So exceptionally adapted is it for this branch of
live stock raising thut the Victoria
and 'island Development association
is doing all in itB power to encourage its introduction on a largo
scale and to promote it in every
way. If sufficient 'interest is manifest
ed by local farmers tbe Associatiou
will endeavor to make arrangements
for the purchase of a carload of goats
for distribution on the Island in order that the industry may get a
substantial start.
The conditions to be. found on Vancouver Island have been found to be
ull that could be wished for the successful operation of the goat, industry. Thc climate, the vegetation and
general character of thc laud, not to
speak of the good prices obtainable
lor the produce, are all most favorable antl it is tbo opinion of those
who have investigated the matter
that, if once introduced, the Industry will become a permanent source
of revenue.
In the State of Oregon'goat raising
has won Considerable fa.or among
the farmers and an extensive industry lias been established, in that
State alone no less than 1 10,OW)
f'eeccs were marketed during the past
year, a fact which demonstrates tha,'.
the industry has a linn bold and
that it is eminently successful. On
Vancouver Island the conditions arc
oven more favorable. In Oregon, the
animals thrive well on the half-
cleared land which is so much in
evidence there. On the Island, however, not only is there a large area of
land similar to that in, Oregon, but
there are also large tracts of naturally suitable land. The rainfall is only, one-third of that of Oregon, and
an over-nhundnncc of humidity is the
only apparent obstacle tu the Industry of that State.
One of the most Important functions of the goat on the farm is its
ability to clear the land .if any
Bhruljb|ery cheaper and more thorough
ly than probably any other agency
could accomplish. It. is for this work
alone  tbat   tbe  animals  are  well-nigh
indispensable and the results achieved by a number of thc animals on
partially cleared land after several
days aro marvelous.
In view of the benefit that could be
derived from the industry's maintenance on the Island, tho Victoria and
Island Development association ia
making every ellort to encourage thc
farmers to adopt it in order to
stimulate public interest. Information on tho subject is procurable at
the ollices of the ABBociation, Hoard
of Trade Muilding, View street. .
Actual Experiences
The following extract, describes the
experience of an Oregon rancher who
commenced in a small way with the
Angora business and obtained splendid results. His ense is applicable in
this country.  It rcuda as follows:
"lu LS9-2 I settled on a homestead
in the foothills of Linn County,
ahout 1,000 feet, above the sea level,
lt was a pretty big undertaking to
hew out a home in the thick timber
and brush and set to burning logs
and stumps to clear a space to grow
something  upon  which  tu  live.
"1 followed this plan to clear the
land for several years, but made
slow headway, until 1 Anally saw
that, the sprouts that came up were
going to smother out what grass I
had sowed. I was about to give up in
disgust and sell to tbe tirst buyer,
when two of my neighbors bought
some Angora goats and brought
them into the vicinity. 1 watched
their work for that season and liked
it. 1 than bought. ten of the lirst
kids that one man raised—tive does
and live wethers— for which I paid
$'llhO(l, brought them home at weening time and put them to work.
They and their progeny have cleared
over 10 acres clean and 1 have part
of that, under cultivation and tin)' rest
is seeded with grass. They are now
al. work on the rest of the '.lb acres
that  I   have cut  and fenced.
"I am not anxious to destroy the
brush now, for the goats bring ine
the easiest money I make. They work
for nothing and return a handsome
profit in kids and mohair. I do not
know how much tin- mohair has
brought me, for sometimes it has
sold for -1 cents and sometimes 'i'2
"One of my neighbors bought a
buck and I watched for results. I
had been told that kids from full-
bloods were hard to raise, but when
1 snw my neighbor got along as well
as 1 did, I bought the buck when he
was through with him and 1 raised
4i kids in two year-:. I had been
getting from one anil one-half to
three pounds per fleece from my kids,
and when 1 got live pounds from
some of the earliest 1 was, indeed,
"I find that thev    eat    everything
that  grows on mv  place and  it-takes
from three to five years to kill out
any kind of brush if the goats aret
confined to one pasture.
Sheep Did Not Do Well
"A. year or two ufter I got my
lirst goats 1 bought some Shropshire
sheep and kept them until I found
that thoy would kill out what grans
i had. The sheep had their noses osi
the ground all the time and the
goats had theirs up in the air for
leaves on the brush. My cows could
not Ltot. along with the sheep but did.
and are still doing, well with the
"1 have sold over $100.00 worth of
mohair and goats this year and still
havc 53 head of my youngest and
"1 find that goats will not do well
in tho mud, hut, will get sore leet. II
any of them do get footsore in winter. I keep a little bottle bandy
(with a crease in the cork) with a
strong solution of blue vitriol to put
between  their hoofs.

The Mail Herald, with the intention of enabling the people of this
city to obtain the fullest information in regard to the war, has been
negotiating for some time with the Chicago Tribune for its famous
motion pictures of the war in Belgium, which were taken under conditions described In another column.
The contracl with the Belgian government, under which the Tribune wns permitted to operate ut the front, required that 50 percent
of the Tribune's profits obtained from exhibiting these pictures be
turned over to  the Belgian Red Cross.
These are .motion lectures' of the wnr as it is, witb real fighting,
soldiers being shot, machine guns and huge cannon in action, trench
Bghting, house* being fired, shells blowing up buildings, views of the
Belgian fighting lines when shrapnel was bursting within 100' ynrds.
Thi:.. are scenes of the burning of Antwerp, the battle of Alost, the
destruction of Termomle. the battle of Aerschot, the flooding of Lierre,
and the brittle of Malines. There is some 1,500 feet in all, requiring

The Farmers' Institute meetings,
under the auspices ot the livestock
and horticultural branch of the de-
pnrement of agriculture, which were
commenced on February J6 aud are
continuing throughout this month
and until March 11, are making vcry
successful progress, and good results
have been gained already. Tho meetings are being conducted by the permanent staff of the department ol
agriculture, mnny of the experts
having arranged to give lectures and
demonstrations on the various subjects in which they are proficient.
No Iobs than 10 agricultural centres throughout the province are included ln the itinerary. The spring
meetings will take place at the following districts in the most convenient halls available for the purpose:
Salmon Arm, Okanagan, Kaleden,
Westbank, Summerland, Bpallum-
cheen, North Okanagan, Greenwood,
Grand Forks, Rossland, Pond

(Ganges and South Salt. Spring),

So extensive is the ground covered
by these Spring meetings thai their
value can hard.y be c imprebended. Iu
many   ot  the  districts   lack   of  expert
knowledge is the o'dy obstacle preventing the farms being operated
successfully. The meetings are ac-
the coraplishing more for the agricultural prosperity of the country than
many years of practical experience,
and it is fortunate thai  they are be
ing well patronized by the (arming
community and bein.' well supported
in  every  way.

[according to the dictionary] is—PROSPERITY.
Success in business is not an accident, it follows
certain well-defined rules. We enumerate three
that are essential.
[1] QUALITY—Your goods must be good,
must give satisfaction in use, be dependable, able to stand any fair test. Not
occasionally but all the time.
[2] VALUE—Your goods must be the best
obtainable for the money. Not the value
of circumstances, nor of competition, but
the most for your customer's money ALL
the time.
[3) PUBLICITY — Quality and value are
something worth talking about. Don't
hide your light under a bushel nor cloak
your goods with the silence that spells
disaster. Forget to talk and the public
will forget to buy. Talk simply and
steadily—talk ALL the time—and prosperity will follow by the rule of three. ■TAGE EIGHT
