PREVAILING PRAYER Subject of Evangelist McHardyY Dis. course at Wesley Church OUR POINT OF VIEW Saskatoon is not going to be be- hind Lethbridge. It has voted 000 to its Board of Trade for publi- city work. A town in Saskatchewan is to be named Kiplinjr. That's a greater honor for the author than knight- That the new government in Now Brunswick is not Conservative' is pro- ven by the. fact that one of the lead- ing Liberals of the province, Johi Morrissey, holds the important port- folio of Minister of public works in the recently formed cabinet. The subejct of .Mr. McMry's dis- course t the Kvangelistic service at Wesley church last night, was "Pre- vailing and was listened to with close attention. The evangelist pointed out there was a marked difference between say- ing prayers and praying. Many peo- ple said their prayers who never pray- ed and the why no results were experienced was because they were never burdened with a sense of need. He bused his text upon AcU "Behold he prayeth." The Scriptures referred to was the story of the con version of Saul of Tarsus, afterwards the great Apustle Paul. was a hard a drunk- ard gambler, or a licenscious a self-righteous Pharisee. He knew nothing of saving grace, but was intensely religious, knowing nothing of God's power. Clothed with authority from the priest he was engeged in a work Vut he considered was doing God's ervice, but which he was soon to ee was a great mistake. Suddenly God appeared to him, as e appears often to men today. Saul ecognized God at once and asked. What wilt Thou have me to Saul got conviction and yielded all his powers to God and became the reat apostle to the Gentiles. Ananias, delegated by God to peak to Saul, was hard to convince hat Saul was seeking the. true light, even when told by God, "Behold he jniyc'th." Ananias no doubt, h'ad of- ten prayed himself for Saul, but like many others, was surprised when his prayer was answered.

Alberta instituted a telephone sys- tem of its own ancLnmde such a suc- cess of it that the Bell Co. real- ized that it had an oppon- ent in the business that was bound to get the support of the people and that sooner or later the Bell would lose ground. Alberta's adoption of a. govern- ment system put ginger into the Man itoba government, which had had a telephone policy but nothing else. The government of that province, be- ing pledged to government ownership of telephones, and observing the ra- pidity -with which a much younger province, Alberta, was constructing a government system, negotiated witg the Bell people and bought out the corporation's holdings in ifani- toba. The Alberta government's energetic policy opened the eyes of the Bell Co. and made it realize that its days were numbered in the Canadian West. Manitoba received the benefit of that awakening in being able to buy out the Bell Company much more conven- iently than it -would have been able to do had Alberta not tried govern- ment ownership and operation and made it a success. Alberta's initiative in this matter has not only given Manitoba a gov- ernment system, but it forces Saskat chewan to a similar course. It will only be A short time before the Bell interests in that province will be taken over by the government and then the three great prairie pro- vinces -will be served by government lines, owned hy the people and oper- ated by the people for the service of the people nt the minimum of cost to the people. The success of the telephone move- ment in Alberta is primarily due to Hon, W. IT. Gushing and the people of Alberta of the present and future generations will ever be under the deepest obligation to this sane, business man for his success in bringing into the" possession of JtjK province one of the greatest of pub- lic utilities. The Fourth Estate repeats a gooo story told by "Bob" Davis, formerly of The Call and now on the editorial staff of. Muns'ey's. While Davis was connected with a paper in a rough- and-ready western town; a shabbily dressed stranger walked in one day and asked for some old clothes, al- though his own were fairly good The staff contributed, and, to the surprise of every one, the stranger pulled out and paid for a year's subscription to the paper. Then, having donned the contributed cloth- ing, he hastily departed. He had been gone but a little while when the sher- iff cume in looking for a horse thiei. His description fitted the stranger to a nicety. "He was in said the foreman, "and went up the street when he left. If you hurry you will catch him."

HUMPHRIES, Pres. MRS. CHAS. McCLENAGHAN, 83-0 Secretary. An Irishman one day- went 'into a barber's shop to get shaved. After he was seated and the lather about half applied, the b'arber was called to an adjoining room, where he was de-1 tained for some time. The barber had in the shop a pet monkey, which was continually imi- tating his master. As soon as the latter left the room the monkey seized the brush and pro- ceeded to finish the son of Erin's face. After doing this he took a razor from its case and it, and then turned to Pat to shave him. "Shtop said the latter firm- ly. "Ye.can tuck the towel in me! neck and put the soap on me face, but, begorrah, yer father's got to shave me." iiiiiitiiiiiiiiiiiiii THE SCHOOLMASTER ABROAD Editor, Lethbridge'Herald, the Herald of March 21 you said, in speaking of the cost to the town on debentures, pay- able in thirty years at six per cent. "Thirty year debentures for 000 at six per cent, will eventually cost about or about 95350 a year." j It would puzzle a Philadelphia lawyer to prove the correctness of that statement as.you can readily perceive, for since yearly interest on at six per cent, is -which in thirty years amount to to which add- the principal, which then becomes due leaves as the total payment. If the sinking fund can be invested at six per cent. it will require but to be paid in yearly to amount to at the end of thirty yenr.s or in all. If to this suiu bu fiuueu the yearly payments of interest it will amount to in all. If the sinking fund is invested at five per cent, it would require a year- ly payment into the fund of or during the thirty years. This sum added to the paid in interests amounts to only or less than as stat- ed by you. Should the sinking fund be invested at less than five per cent, the annual payments into it would require to be larger. .But even with the sinking fund in- vested at only three per cent., the annual payments into it still be less than yearly.
