There are a few tilings that any rural board can do if they will, and speaking from the teacher's viewpoint, these are some; Make the school house attractive, equip it generously for educational work; have proper heating and other appliances to lighten the chores; ir've as a part of the salary a teacher's house furnished and ; rent free, even a loom In Uie school  Is preferable to any outside boarding ^lace: form a mother's club or parents' association to visit the school and take an interest in all its activities', pay salaries monthly and do not itnake It necessary for a teacher to aafc '.for what be has already earned, we] ifoma the new teacher, not n !gatlve'.y. j but positively, let it be understood t that he belongs to the community. } count him in and let him know that I you do. These things can be done anywhere i aid now. they require no leg slatlon ' or special taxes and they will be a t:help in securing what all country 'people want, earnest and efficient (teaching for their young folks. They j are helpful, but they are a mere stop ' B*P. for permanent results we must | look to something else. First and foremost of all remedies 11s consolidation. It is simple and effective, and the machinery for put-Wing it into operation is already to 'band. Southern Alberta and especial i ly the Let abridge Inspectorate already >et ua go forward and keep I up the record. The Initial impulse tin this respect must come from the  people of the dlstrieta coiieerned The Ottawa. April 5-It was learned tonight that the resignation of�\V F O'Conncr. K C. as cost of living commissioner, was preceded by that of the deputy. J O lm!ay. and Mr O'Connor's resignation was in support of Mr Iralay s action with respect 'o a matter of administration of the duties of the commissioner'" office It is stated that Mr O'Connor's views on the support of Mr Imlay being overborne by the minister. Mr. O'forv nor felt that he could do nothing else but resign It Is stated that on his appointment as cost of Using cnrcmls ' aloner. Mr O'Connor stipula'ed and it was agreed that he should have full control of administration There have, it is said, been Inter ,ferenoes with Mr �O'Connor's control ,�t the staff, hence the resignation. ] trail has been blazed for you. Mr I Farmer, do not let von; family be the , last >o profit I think the figures in iium; cases ^�iiow consolidation to he unite a lit Ttie cheaper per capita.
