Claim That Board Has Infringed
Prerogative — Object to
Monitor System
At u meeting ol the school board
last ninht a letter from the principals
ol the Central and Selkirk schools in
which it was stated that the principals held that the board had exceeded its authority in giving certain, instructions us to the management of the schools, was read and
discussed. The letter was as follows.
The Board of School Trustees,
Revelstoke, B. 0.
Gentlemen—We, the undersigned
principals ot Central and Selkirk
schools respectively, desire to enter
protest to your board as follows:
1. With reference to thc recent order of the board requiring the appointment of monitors from among
the pupils to supervise the other
pupils on the play grounds: Wc beg
to point out that we are opposed to
this because we believe that such action would have a tendency to encourage spying and tale-bearing on
the part of the pupils to an undesirable extent. Moreover we are ot the
opinion that such a step is unnecessary, as any breaches of discipline
brought to our attention have been
dealt with In a manner which wc believe to be effective. If at nny time
the trustees become personally aware
of cases which have gone unpunished,
we ieel that it is their duty to bring
euch to our notice without delay.
■8. We would further protest
against the tone and substance of a
report of a board meeting appearing
in Che Mail-Herald Of Saturday,
March 20'. This report gives an impression that the control of the
principals aaAl. teachers o\or the
pupils is far from what it should be
while on the contrary we believe chat
the conduct of the pupils of the Ue-
velstoke public schools, both on the
school premises during school hours
and on thc streets outside ol school
tours, will compare very favorably
with that, to he lound in any other
city in the province. Here we would
point out with regret the omission of
the trustees to bring before us lor
investigation specific Instances ot
unsatisfactory conduct an the part
of pupils.
3. We would further represent it
as our opinion that in laying down
rules for the administration of discipline the hoard is exceeding its
authority, and would ask that such
matters he left, as provided in the
■school law, to thc judgment ot the
principals. \t the same time we invite the co-operation of the trustees
in the manner previously suggested,
that is by,bringing before us for Investigation any cases of unsatisfactory conduct on the part of pupils
which they have reason to believe
bave escaped our notice.
We would therefore ask that vou
withdraw the orders which you have
issued with rcgurd to the employment of monitors and the r<aqulring
of pupils to stand when visitors enter the room (hoth of which we con-
eider an invasion of our rights us
set forth in the School Act) as we
believe, tor the reasons stated above,
that we as principals are fully competent and have lull authority to
deal with such matters ourselves. We
would further request that the trustees tuke steps to prevent a lalse
impression us to conditions of discipline obtaining in thc schools hein.;
spread through newspaper reports ot
board meetings.
Again inviting your co-operation in
the wuy of furnishing details of
breaches of discipline, we beg to remain. »
Yours respectfully,
Principal,  Central  School.
Principal, Selkirk  School.

!    A  bill for $94.M was received Irom
(.'..J.   Treat    for     expenses « incurred
when hiB house wus quarantined     a
year ago last January. The quarantine     existed     from    January  4,  to
January 2d and for Mrs. Treat's expenses he charged $l..r.;' a day a total of
$31.50, A similar sum was charged for
his own expenses while under quarantine and for two children he charged
75 cents per day another     total     of
$Jl.&ef>. The bill was laid on the table.
The complaint of two men that
they did not obtain a fair share of
work at the power plant was discussed.
Aid. Smythe said that some men
who were not experienced held jobs
under thc city for loni: periods on
the plea that they were experienced.
He advocated giving the men two
weeks work at a time.
C. North, city electrician, said that
every man applying for work
been given a chance. Of ES names on
the list in had already been given
A debate fallowed as to the best
method for stimulating the consumption of ele"tric power during th •
summer, Mr. North advocated the employment of electricity for coo'iing
purposes. He Bald that very little
power was used in the summer and
that the city could aflord to olTer an
attractive rate and he advised the
purchase of an electric stove for demonstration purposes. The possibilities will be investigated and a Stove
will probably be purchased and plac
cd with BOme householder. Some of
the aldermen also suggested that il a
toboggan slide were laid out near the
siew ski jump electric power might be
used  to pull the     toboggans up     the
I bill and might be made to pay expenses while at the same time fostering winter spirts. This will also be
investigated and reported upon by
Mr,  North.

Conservatives Goes With
Au enjoyable program under the
auspices ot the newly formed Voung
Conservative club which now has a
membership of over 100 was given iu
| the Star Theatre last night to a
large an enthusiastic audience.
Hon. Thomas Taylor, minister ot
public wor»s, was present and addressed the gathering. He spo.-ie of
the origin of the Conservative party
and suid that history showed thal-tho
Conservative party in Canada and
the Tory party in England had always stood for advancement, development, and for the British tlag. If the
Conservative party had had their
way there would be to.lay three big .
dreadnoughts, supplied by Canada,
Bghting with the British lieet.
Mr. Taylor showed that almost all
great public won s and extensive developments thut havi taken place
were due tothe Conservative party.
Their policy was up-building not destruction. The large numl er of volunteers who had enlisted from Kevelstoke was mentioned by  Mr. Taylor.
T. Kilpatrick gave a address
He.stated that it was remarkable
that an organization li e the Young
Conservative club should attain a
membership of IOC in such a short
time. The suggestion to start tho
club was .niy made acout three weeka
ago. He strongly ad located the inauguration of a debating school in
the club, not necessarily to discuss
political questions, but any question
which might arise. He bol.e.ed that
it would bring out a lot of talent nnd
give young men confidence.
A splendid program v. as rendered
during the evening which w.,s much
appreciated. Bert Allen made the hit
of the evening being called on no le: i
than three time-i. He proVeSd H veiy
\ersatile entertainer and his 11.
itatio'is of the sounds made by Ml-
ferent tools, bells, cat and dog fi^ht
and many others were heartily ap-
I laudeod. He also gave threci :
solos and two whistling so os.
Messrs. Harding and Twiss egave sev-
e rai piano .md mandolin duets w • b
were well ree Ived. S. Harrison - ng
"My Little Grey Home ofthe West."
Mr, Martin gave a recitation "Spar-
tacui to the Gladiators," and Mr.
tuck sang "My Ain Folk," all of
which were much appreciated.
After the program was completed,
CF. Llndn it'.-., president of tho
Young  ' ive    club,  addressed
thc club h ■ resslng on the members
that c'.e..:: politics waa the object of
the club. He asked them to bear
two thin.-s in mind: Never Fay any-
tblng you will be sorry tor afterward! a..', nevei lo anything you will

that the .club was banded together to
see that Hon, Th imai Taylor waa
elected. H i mentii ned th it a nrm-

An excellent story ls going the

A French tradesman wbo had amassed a grent fortune wanted very badly
to get hold of some decoration to wear

wearing the grand cross of tbe order

the moment his visitor cakie within

this? I gave orders that you should

Tlie ratio of tbe length of the circumference of a circle to Its din meter,
sought during vany thousands of
years, has never been discovered. It
has been known for decades of centuries, away back to the Aryans and to
the Egyptians—or rather to the non-
Egyptian pyramid of Supbls builders—
that tbe circumference of a circle is
three and a fraction times longer than
Its diameter.
This fraction has been sought by
■computers lu every great nation from
prehistoric times. Within modern
times lt has been computed with accuracy and by enormous labor ln Germa
ny out to G35 decimal places with no
end—there Is always a remainder to
be reckoned.
But all of this work wits useless, be-
causo high mathematics has shown
that the string of figures will never
como to an end in any finite number of
figures. And ns these men cannot

most Interesting of all these el.9-
ments of destruction as well as the
simplest is guncotton. The gun-
cotton manufacturing industry la
large, as enormous quantities are
used in tbe charging of torpedoes
and for similar purposes.
The base of guncotton is pure raw
cotton or even cotton waste, such as
is used to clean machinery. This is
steeped in a solution of one part of
nitric and three parts of sulphurlo
acid. It Is the former ingredient tbat
renders the mass explosive, the sulphuric acid being used merely to
absorb all moisture, thus permitting
the nitric acid to combine more
readily with the cellulose of tbe
After being soaked for several
hours in the solution described the
cotton is passed between rollers to
expel all nonabsorbed acid, a process
carried to completion by washing tbe
cotton in clear water. This wasblng
process is a long one, requiring machinery which reduces tke cotton to
a mass resembling paper pulp.
Should any nonabsorbed acid be allowed to remain it would decompose
the cotton.
If the explosive is to be used after
the manner of powder It is still further pulverized and then thoroughly
dried, but if Intended for torpedoes
it is pressed Into cakes of various
similes and sizes elisk shaped, cylindrical. Bat squares and cubes. Wh°n
not compressed guncotton is very

The Losing Side of the oMail
Order Trading
Farmer Tells How by Sending Away for His Goods the
Value of His Farm Depreciated $5,600 in Nine Years
Because He and Others Were Not Alive to the Necessity
of Building Up the Home Town.
A CERTAIN farmer in Iowa has
discovered that the benefits
which appear on tbc surfuce as
attaching to the mail order plan
sometimes spell disaster and has
written a very interesting story of
his views in a certain farm paper.
Here is a part of his story:
"Wo farmers need awakening to the
fact that we have unmistukn/bly reach
ed the period where wo must think
and plan. I am ono ol the slow farmers that had to be shown, and I
am now giving my experience that
others may profit, for knowledge is
more  expensive  now  than ten    years
"Twenty-nine years ago I began
my farm career. I had an old team
and $50. Our furniture was mostly
home-made—chairs, cupboard and
lounge made from dry goodB boxes,
neatly covered with ten-cent cretonne
by my girl wife. We rented eighty
ucres. Being a hoy of good habits I
got (II needed machinery and groceries of our home merchants on
credit, until fall crops were Bold. The
tirst year was a wet season and I did
i ot iSake enough to pay ereditors. I
went tn each on date of promise nnd
explained conditions, paying us much
as possible, and they all carried the
balance over another yeur. They continued to accommodate me until I
was able to buy a forty-acre piece of
my own.
"As soon as I owned these few
acres the mail order houses began
■sending me catalogues, and gradually I began sending my loose change
to them, letting my accounts stand
in my home town where 1 had gotton
my accommodation  when  I needed  it.
"We then had ono of the thriftiest
little villages in thc Btate—good line
of business in all the branches, merchants who were willing to help an
honest lollow over a had year, and a
town full of people who came twice
n week to trade and visit. Our little
country towtti supported a library,
high school, band, ball team, and We
had big celebrations every year.
"A farm near a 'live town soon
doubles in value. I sold my
forty acres at a big advance and
bought nn eighty, gradually adding
to it until T hnd 200 acres of tlm best
land in Iowa. I then felt no need of
asking favors, nnd found It easy tn
pntrionlze the mail order aeents thnt
enme nlmnst weekly to our door. T
regret to say that T was tbe flrst in
the country tn make up n nelghbor-
hnnd bill and send It to n mnll order
bouse.  Thoiieh  we got      bitten  every
once in a while, we got in the habit
of sending away for stuff.
"Gradually our merchants lessened
their stock ol goods—for lac't of patronage Finally ere began to realise
that when we needed a holt quickly
for machinery, or clothing for sickness or death, we had to trait and
Bend away for it. which wasn't so
pleasant, One hy one our merchants
i,ovc.1 to places where they wot* appreciated, and men o( leas energy
moved In. Gradually our town, has
gone down; our busin<tu houses arc
"tacky" in appearance, ., number arc
empty; our schools, church.-
walks are going down; we have no
hand, no library, no ball team. There
Is no business done in the town, and
therefore no taxes to keep things up.
Hotel is closed for lack of travel. Qo
down to the depot when the freight
pulls in and you will see the seiu^
'in mail order packaees.
"N'ine vears ago my farm was
worth $195 an acre, to-day I'd have
a hard matter to sell it at $167 an
acre. It is 'too far from a live town'
—so every farmer has said that wants
tn buy. He want-: a place near schools
and churches, where his children can

Mr. Martin is the only prominent
member of the Liberal party who
has given utterance to sucn\sentiments, others, less .independent than
he, refrain from commendation leBt
they might seem hy, inference to condemn Sir Wilfrid Laurier, whose attitude, when in power, toward graft
in the Liberal party and, even now,

the familiar practice of impugning the

great weakness. A num who has an
adequate defence meets accusations on
their merits. The public, moreover, is
very little concerned about , whut

Successful lea for
Red Cross Society
The Revelstoke brunch of the Red
Cross society held a very successful
teu, given hy Mrs. Cormier at the
home of Mrs. Hughes on Thursday afternoon. The house was profusely decorated with floral baskets, carnations, tulips and datlodils being employed in the dillorent rooms. Many
Hags were placed in the rooms, a
large Belgian    tlag being conspicuous
J iu the entrance hall.
Little Hazel Hughes, the small
daughter of the house, looking very
demure, and sweet iu the uniform ol
u Red Cross nurse, opened the door,
while nearby, greeting the largo
company  ol  guests,      were  Mrs.   Cor
'ruler and Mrs.  HugheB. The collection
: plate was admirably attended to, by
.Mrs. H.H. McVity. in the tea room,
Mrs. W.H. Sutherland und Mrs. W.I.
Briggs presided Ior the tirst hour at
the tea-table, where a silver basket of
lovely tulips and carnations centered
the tabic, and were relieved later by
Mrs. C.S. McCarter and Mrs. S. G.
Robbins. Others who busied themselves during the afternoon on behalf
' of the guests were MrB. Wallace and
the     Misses    Hyatt, Urquhart,   and
| Bruce.  In a small room off the     ball
i were arranged tables for    candy and
I home cookery, and a popular spot it
I proved  to be, most of the ladies   be-
ling willing victims ofthe many de-
icacios , offered for sale, and a few  of
| tbe gentlemen  dared to  venture     in.
jMrs. Krnest H. S. McLean, assisted
by  Miss Rosebud Haggen sold  delici-
! ous candies, which were all homemade, and daintily arranged  in little
j 1 askets of different colors, while Mrs.
G.R. Lawrence had    charge     of   the
: culinery department, $25 being the
proceeds from this table alone. The
singers of tlie afternoon were artists
of the first rank and the well merited
applause which was given each number paid tribute to the efforts of each
' soloist. Mrs. Fred Bews, the well
known contralto, who possesses a
lich voice of appealing quality, sang
I "Time's Garden." She was accompanied by Mrs. Lonard Howson. Mrs.
L.W. Wood whose name on concert
programs has grown familiar to Revelstoke    audiences,     delighted every
jtne with her rendering of "Rosamond" and "Love's Rhapsody." Mrs.
Cormier is to be congratulated on the
success of this'undertaking, si;0 being
' the  handsome sum handed  over     to
