Those   Who  Do   Not   Qualify
Dismissed—Life at the
The following interesting letter
from Hart Munro, now at the Willows camp,  has been  received.
Dear Sister,—Your always welcome
letter arrived night before last and
I was glad to know that you were
all well though working hard. As for
me I am as well as usual and not
working hard enough to hurt anybody. We ten pioneers were transferred to the staff a couple of days ago
along with the Maxim gun section,
the stretcher hearers end signalla.d.
In all there are only eighty of us in
the new compuny which make an
easier bunch than 1-0 for the cook
to handle, and as a result we have
better meals than we used to. All
the people who know us are exceedingly good to ub and do everything
possible to make the time pass pleasantly. I have met many Kevelstoke
people here including Mr. IFoster,
Hon. Thomas Taylor, Billy Brown,
tbe Boyds, and Kellies nnd have
spent some very enjoyable evenings
and Sundays with them. Last night
I took advantage for the first time
of our permanent night leave (granted all pioneers) and went out to the
Boyds' home at Onk Hay. They huve
a beautiful place right at the beach
and arc all doing very well. He is
master mechanic at the E & N.
shops. We had a very enjoyable
musical evening as Maud und Jessie
are among the best performers on
piano and violin in town and Frank
Little who lives with them plays the
cornet. We sang quartettes, duets,
etc. until nearly m'idnight and then
I walked across to camp. It is only
about a mile and a half across, but
about four miles to go around by
cur from our camp. When I arrived
home the boys were just having a
supper of bread and butter, cheese
nnd coffee after a three or four hour
mimic battle in which several of
the companies were told oil to capture the wireless station defended by
the remainder of the battalion.
They succeeded in the attempt and
captured a large number of prisoners
'including officers. This morning my
chum Henderson (from Summerland)
and I have been putting a floor in
one of the officers t.enls. ft is raining cats and d-igs outside bit' thi
boys are out on another long route
march. I don't wonder they don't
put on much flash. We have nearly
all passed the shooting test now although some of us including myself
had several tries at, it. It was rather
a stiff test as to make a possible It .
was necessary to group five shots in
a four inch circle. Twice I made good
scores 2D and 22 out of a possible 25 I
but as one shot, wns outside it was
no good. However there were a few
worse than I, for I saw one fellow '
fire fifteen shots and only hit the
target once. They .-.re discharging
those whom they cannot teach to
shoot as it is the most important
feature  af the whole business.

Tool Shed Destroyed and Bridge
South of City Charred -
Arrests Made
What is believed to have been an
attempt to burn down tho Canadian
I'acitic railway bridge seven miles
south of UevelBtoke occurred on Sunday. The incendiaries burned a tool
shed und the bridge itself was Charred,
The matter has been investigated
by ths Canadian Pacific railway and
provincial police and it bus been
discovered that two suspicious characters were seen by au Austrian in
the neighborhood of the fire.
Acting on information supplied by
N. V„ Rothwell, provincial constable,
two men who stated that they came
from Revelstoke, were arrested today at Arrowhead by G.H. Howieson
provincial constable, and will be
brought to the city in connection
with'the case.
School Board Postpones Domestic Science, Manual Training and Night School
The usual increases of su'luries to
teachers of the public and high
schools, as provided for by schedule,
will not be granted this year in Hevclstoke. This was decided at the
first meeting for the year of the
school board held at the high school
on Monday evening. After discussion
it was decided that in view of the
present financial stringency and lack
of employment owing to the war the
usual increases would not be justifiable this year. For the same reasons
an application for increase of salary
from the jmnitor of the high school
was refused.
On the same grounds it wus resolved that the board would postpone starting the proposed classes in
domestic science and manual training
and also the proposed night school.
A letter will be written to G. H.
Dean, supervisor of technical education, acquainting him with the
board's decision regarding domestic
science and manual training and
with thc reasons for its decision,
thanking him for the interest he has
taken in the matter and informing
him that when times improve the
inauguration of the classes will receive full consideration. A similar
letter will be sent to John Kyle, organizer of technical edncatiou, regarding the night schools.
The board congratulated W. A.
Sturdy and A. E. Kenward on their
re-election and H. Manning and T.E.
L. Tuylor vacated their positions us
chairman and secretary respectively.
On motion of A. E, Kenward, seconded by E. Tremble, Mr. Manning
was unanimously re-elected chairman
and on the motion of Mr. Tremble,
seconded by Mr. Kenward, Mr. Tuylor was unanimously reappointed us
A readjustment wns made in the
salary of one teacher to make the
scale uniform nt both schools.
Those present, nt the   meeting were
H.  Manning,  in the chair,    T.  E.  L.

the president,  was as follows:
"It affords me much pleasure" to
welcome you at our annual general
meeting tonight to hear the report
of our activities for the past ye»r
and to discuss matters of interest to
the association. N'ineteen fourteen us
you know has been u dark year in the
hiBtory of the world owing to the
existing war and the consequent im
aucial stringency, lack of employment
and many other distressing circumstances. You all know that this unfortunate condition of affairs decided thc directors ui your association to cuncel our l'JH fair. The
New Westminster provincial exlubi
t'ion was also cancelled for the first
time in its history and the Victoria
Dominion exhibition was cancelled together with a great number from interior points of B.C. We fully realize
now that the directors decision to
cancel the Kevelstoke fair was a wise
one and our chief energies have beeu
put forward to keep our associatiou
together to be ready for future efforts. Our presence as ar. existing
factor in the world of agriculture
has been fully made known through
our unqualified success in carrying ofl
the first prize at the Intel national Irrigation congress which wmb held at
Calgary in October. Kevelstoke took
tirst honors m a field of thirteen
competitors capturing the hundsonie
sum of $r>Cl). I wish to point out at
this particular time that the eflorts
of Messrs. W. E. Smith and W. H.
pot trail, chairmen of the fruit and
NffTetubles committees caunot be
over-estimated as it was largely owing to these two gentlemen actively
supported by Mr. DaB R. Campbell
that  Revelstoke achieved  the
it did. Expression of great gratitude
is also due to Messrs George Laforne
K.  .).    Ballard,     w.  M.    Lawrence,
Messrs. Malcolm & Clelund, C. B.
Hume ranch. I). K. Campbell and

hearty support in providing exhibits

c(ss of the Revelstoke exhibit for
without this value,! assistant an.l
the wholebeatred cooperation of
those iu charge we should not have

"I wish every member here tonight to look forward with cheerful
ness to better times and to realize
that the association appreciates
every bit, of hein toward the advancement of agriculture that every ounce
of energy put forward lor the furtherance of Oltr interests jn this
direction  is absorbed  for the     benefit

Mineral Resources of
Lardeau Mining Division
Report by Newton W. Emmens Published by British
Columbia Bureau of Mines—Contains Two Recognized Mineral Belts—Easy of Access
The following iB the report of Newton W. Emmens, M.E., on the mineral resources of the Lardeau mining
division published in the bulletin of
the British Columbia bureau of
mines just issued:
The areu covered by the Lardeau
.dining Division embraces thc territory bounded on the north by a
line following the summit of the
ridge dividing thc watersheds of the
Illecillewaet and the Incomappleux
rivers; on the BOUth by a line following th« summits "' the ridges forming
the divide between the watersheds of
Pingston and Bannock creeks and the
Upper Arrow and Trout lakes; on
the east by a line following the summits of the ridges dividing the watersheds of the Incomappleux river
from that of Lardeau creek and the
upper portion of the linncun river
and Beaver creek; while on the west
it follows along the summits of the
ridges forming the divide between
the watersheds eif the Shuswap and
the  Columbia  rivers.
That portion of the area bordering
the Upper Arrow lake north of Alien point, the North-east arm and
the valley of the Columbia river as
far north as Mile-post 23', ou the Arrowhead branch of the Canadian
Pacific railway, hus already been
dealt with in the geological report
on the Arrowhead section, and will
ti.it therefore be repeated here.
All bearings mentioned  in this   rc-
1..• rt  are astronomic     and all eleva-
- are allove sen-level.
The greater portion of the Lardeau
Mining Division is comparatively
easy of access, being, ns it is, practically bisected by the wi ie, fiat valley of the Incomappleux river.
The Canadian I'acitic railway op-
crates trains as far as Arrowhead, at
the junction e.i the Columbia river
and the North-east arm with the Up-
per Arrow lake. From Arrowhead a
steamer connects with tbc town of
Beaton, at the hea'l of the Northeast arm, from which place there is
an excellent wagon-road for a dis-
l .nee of twelve nubs up the valley
of the Incomappleux river. From
t:.:s wagon-road excellent trunk!trails
have been birilt up most of the larger
tributary creeks, and, from these
trunk trails and other parts of the
wagon-road, pack-trails have been
! ailt to ii number of individual miner and prospects, .M st of the.' trails)

tively small miount of wor.; will put
the others in good shape.

These valleys dissect bhe district
min a number of mountain r.dgcs
having a general north-west and
south-east trend, with offsetting
ridges at  right angles.
The mountains are large, blocky
musses, usually terminating in rough,
narrow, serrated ridges, the skyline
ol which is fairly even, but relieved
in detail by a number pf pinnacles
and spire-like rock-masses.
Speaking of the mountains in this
portion of the Selkirks, R. W. Brock"
says: "This even skyline, suggestive
of a dissected peneplane which is a
striking feature in a panoramic view
from any peak, is remarkable in so
mountain ius a district. It seems to
be due to the sameness in physical
and structural conditions of the
rocks over a wide area, with, perhaps planation by thc Cordilleran
ice-sheet. Where the country-rock is
granite or limestone the mountains
are loftier and the skyline becomes
At the northern end of the district
is a belt of limestone which forms the
most conspicuous feature in the topo-
graphy. Here the ridges are wedged-
shaped, rising precipitously above the
surrounding country, weathering into
casteliated  and  fantastic forms.
The topographical features are
undoubtedly due to the erosion by
river-action in a region of uplift, but
there is much evidence to show that
these features have been modified by-
ice, the summits of tbe ridges having been bevelled oil and basins and
t'.rques scooped out. Many of these
latter are still occupied liy residual
The shape of the larger valleys has
been changed from a V shape to thai
of a Bteep walled U, while the duds
of the ridges projecting into these
valleys have been tr seated, giving
tin in the appearance of -f.iormous cut-
banks. The doors o! the mam valleys
lime been deepened to a greater ex
tent than those of the tributary, so
that the latter often lie above as
hanging valleys.
On  the  iii.uintain-sides and  on    the
summits  of  the  ridges are  mi:
boulders of roi-:-;. foreign to anything
in the vicinity,     Indicating     clearlj

Improved Methods of Treatment.
The number of men wounded in the
battles of the present war is enormous, but the percentage of deaths is
said to be remarkably small. This,
of course, is largely owing to improved methods of surgicnl treatment
and also to tbe fact that modern
rific bullets indict much smaller and
cleaner wounds thun those of former
The modern bullet although only
three-tenths of au inch in diameter,
has great penetrating power. It leaves the muzzle of the rille ut a speed
of nearly a mile a second, and cub-
lly passes through the thickest 'part
of a man. It does very little tearing,
and bo makes a wound with cleun
edges, which is much less likely to
catch and bold germs.
ln the present conflict a vast
amount of 6iiflering for tbe wounded
is prevented by the use of anucsthe-
ticB, especially where operations have
to bc performed. It is likely that the
French and Germans, in their Held
and base hospitals, are using, when
amputations have to be made, such
Bpecial pain deadenera as 'novo-
caine' and 'scopolamine,' which are
injected into the spinal canal. These
have the advantage that they do not

impress the visitor from other climates.
Nowhere does a greater variety of
pastimes offer itself, nowhere can
winter sports bc enjoyed in greater
perfection. Revelstoke's winter climate is one of its chief assets, but
strangers, perhaps, rea'lize its advantages more keenly than those to
whom they are commonplaces of
daily existence. Before much can be
expected in the way of popularizing
Kevelstoke as a winter resort its
citizens must awake to a thorough
realization of the uternctions of its
climate and of the scope for development thnt it offers. This is the first
step toward the creation of an enthusiasm which will take (ull advantage of the opportunities tor
recreation and which will arouse
abroad an interest in Kevelstoke and
in the pleasures that may be enjoyed
there during thc winter season. ,
Ponoka Herald: Monday evening it
was our duty and pleasure to visit
the council chamber and witness the
"installation" of the ntw council.
Mayor Durkin acted Wis part in a
parental fashion—stand by me till
the end ofthe year, boys, and all
will be well. The new council are a
line looking body, can chew gum and
smoke the Havana, but it must be
said, failed to puss the delicacies
nervous breakdown, but very few in
comparison with the numbers engaged, and by no means producing
effect enough to insure the success of
thc assault following the cannonade.
The modern soldier simply digs his
trench the deeper and holds on to
meet thc attack. The big guns are
called 'by opprobrious and contemptuous nick-names, such • as "Black
Marias," "soup steamers," and the
like. Napoleon said thnt the rarest
sort of courage iB four-o'clock-in-the-
morning courage, but there is lots of
that in the trenches along the French
border. The Germans have systematically made many ol their most determined assaults in the small hours
following midnight, hut these have
been met calmly and effectively as
if under the noonday sun. It will be
interesting to see how the psychologists will account for this, whether it
may be ascribed to the verv dead-
lioess of .modern weapons, or to the
decay of superstition, or to more
occult causes. This much is certain:
Modern men are worth saving for a
better life on earth than many of
them have hud.
The Empress theatre is showing
some great pictures these days. The

the British and Belgians. This is
said to be the most wonderful picture
ever shown on a screen, and is being

Aid. McSorley mentioned the need
for improving Second street trom

Aid. Bell said that the road from
the Selkirk hotel to thc freight shed
needed attention, also from thc railway crossing to the cemetery where
connection was made with a good
government road. The difficulty Was
that this was not a legal 6treet.
Aid Masson spoke of thc urgent

Won By Federals
On Monday evening tbe second
game of of the senior league in basnet ball was played between tho Federals and the Tigers. A good game
from first to last was played. The
Federals have made quite au im-
I rovement in the past week and
their combination during the first
of the first half was splendid,—Wood,
Gordon and Dupont worked very well
together and after the first 10 minutes of play the score was 10 to 2 in
favor of the Federals. The Tigers got
together and broke up their three
cornered combination and the half
finished 12 to 10 in favor of the Federals.
The second half was more even
than the first and several timeB the
score was in favor of ne team and
then the other. The Tigers worked
some very fine Hashes of combination
and a good percentage .f t';:eir shots
scored. Little scored three of the five
field goals for the Tigers in the second half. On the whole the game
was very close after the first 10
minutes and nt the call of time the
score sheet showed the points to bo
22 to 21 in favor of the Federals.
The line  up was as  follows:
Federals—H. -Jordon f. Lawrence f.
Wood c.  McLeod  d.   Dupont d.
Tigers—Calder f. Little f. Benett c. \

The great European war has witnessed the application of new methods in military surgery. It is said
tbat among the French troops there
have been few cases of infected
wounds. The percentage of recoveries
has been surprisingly high, and there
have been relatively few amputations
of limbs. The methods employed in
the treatment of the wounded are
new within the last very few years,
and they represent tbe greatest advance in operative and clinical surgery since Lister discovered and revealed the principles of antisepsis.
Even so short a time ago as during
the American-Spanish war, it was
customary to wash wounds with soap
und water before applying a dressing
The surgeons in the French and German armies today do nothing of the
kind. Tbey do uot wash wounds nt
all. [nstead, the military doctor
picks up a wad of sterilizoil absor-
ent cotton witb his forceps, t dips it
into a bottle containing a mixture
of iodine and benzine, and gently
dabs it over the lacerated part. Probing is avoided. Iodine is now recognized as the best germ killer in existence. Benzine is a first rate cleaner
us it evaporates, it takes the grease
oil the skin. To finish thc cleaning
and leave the wound in n germ-free
condition, ready for the application
of the sterlized dressing, the surgeon
uses a mixture of one-third iodine
and two-thirds alcohol.
Hospital Gangrene
In the present conflict nothing is
heard of 'hospital gangrene'—the
frightful malady that cost so many
thousands of lives during the American Civil War. The wounded soldier
in those days might pass the doctor's inspection with every appearance that he was doing well and on
the road to recovery. Twenty-four
hours later his wound, perhaps, Was
found to have turned black, with an
exudation of greenish pus. Gangrene
had set in. It meant death of the
fleshy tissues; the only thing to be
done was to cut ofl thc limb—in
which case, only too commonly, the
amputation was followed by more
gangrene, and terminated in the
death  of the sufferer.
Happily this worst horror of the
War has i.o'.v been done away with. A
few years ago hospital gangrene was
a mystery. Today we know that the
mala ly is attributable to a specific
germ, and that in former times it
w.is spread ehi -'y h tbe doctors
nnd nurses in the military hospitals,
as they went from patient to pat-
, lent, dressing tbe wounds with bare
an.l  L-erm-carrying hands.
W.-  may  take  it for     granted,   too.
In the military hospitals
are no cases of   pus
In ti..- present war, the     surge na

If ;a man's hand Is crushed, and even
the little finger can be saved, it is
well worth saving, inasmuch as it
con hold something. The soldier's
leg may be frightfully injured, yet
the surgeon will not cut it oil except
as a last reBort. Rather than do bo,
he will leave It alone for a while, to
take care of itself—after applying, of
course, the necessary treatment with
antiseptic cleansing and suitapjle
dressing. His object is to give nature
a chance to accomplish all that she
can do. When amputatlions have to
be performed the patient's chance of
recovery under modern conditions,
with the help of the scientific methods of treatment now understood,
is certainly more than twice as good
as it used to be.
Soap and water is n mild disinfectant. That is why it was used in the
treatment e>f wounds by the old-time
military suregon, although he did
not really understand the reason. The

These rocks have the characteristic
north-westerly strike and north-east-
•crly dip, and nre cut by latter joint
strikikg at right angles and dipping
steeply to the north-west.
Two important bands of quartzite,
locally called "quartzite dykes,"
cross the valley of the Incomappleux
river—one n short distance below tbe
mouth of Menhinick creek, and the
other below that of Sable creek. This
is an exceedingly hard, close-grained,
dark-blue rock, cut und seamed in
all dirjct'ions by quartz stringers,
!and has the appearance of an Indurated  sandstone.
About Twelve-mile to within a
short distance of McDougal creek thc
formation consists of crystalline
limestones, interbanded with slateB
and phyllites. Many of the limestone-
bands are highly carbonaceous, some
of them containing a considerable
amount of graphite, yihjle others contain a sufficient amount of chlorite
to impart a decided green colour to
the rock. This green chlorite has, in
some instances, been mistaken for the
green carbonate of copper (malachite).
North of this last series of rocks is
a coarse-grained porphyritic granite
near wh'ich occur numerous dykes of
aplite and a coarse-grained uuart-
zose pegmatite. it is in connection
with the latter rocks that the tin
occurs north of McDougal creek.
owing to the highly altered and
metamorphosed condition of the
rocks, there is a complete absence of
recognizable fossils, but from their
.1 appearance, sequence, uud
position, they are regarded as a
continuation southward of the format i.n which is exposed along the
main line of thc Canadian Pacific
railway between the stations of
Twin Butte and Olacier, which hus
been classified as belonging to the
Beltian system (the Nisconlith and
Selkirk sericB of Dawson) und as being  of the I're-Cnmbrian age.

spent the noon hour yesterday reading the Mail.Herald you sent me.
We havc some funny occurrences
sometimes; the other night one of
the regiments which has a number of
new recruits in the ranks detailed
one of these oil for picket duty at
the main gate. About midnight along
came one of the princpal officers returning from the city. "Haiti .Who
goes there"? challenged the sentry.
"A friend" replied the officer. "Pass
friend! She's Jako!" said the sentry
and the officer walked past try'ing
bard to suppress a smile. Wc havc
Borne fellows in the regiment who
celebrate pay-days in ways peculiar
to themselves. One fellow,after the
necessary number of drinks gets down
on all fours and walks hear fashion
alll around the building for hours after lights out, growling in a very
realistic manner, while another gets
the night-horse on the slightest provocation and to hear the blood-curdling yells he lets out every half hour
or so would lead one to think he
was up against something real nad.
Thc camp as a rule is a sober one
and T know some follows who in
civilian clothes were seldom sober,
who now hnve cut It out entirely. Of
course there are a few who disgrace
the hunch every time they get a
chance, but T am happy to say none
of them come from the Revelstoke
district. The Y.M.C.A. is flourishing
and there is seldom room for one to
write a letter at thc tables, while all
tbe dry canteens of which there are
Cve are generally well filled.
