NOT ONLY KOK CUPS AND RUiKONS JCPKAKINH nt Hie Mixed Km-mina Convention, Mr. McNicol made use of a good opporlunily in enlarging op. the cduea- (ive value of a 'stock show. In view of the fact that there has been some dissatisfaction expressed against pilling tin- slock of Southern Alberta against those raised in other parts of the Do- minion, there was med for some sneh expression of opinion. in Ihe interests of agricultural industry, as confined to the breeding and raising of live sloek, the idea shows are lo be regarded as fields for ciip-lumliiig alone should be disabused. This may be their secondary uses und should so lie viewed. What is primarily intended is thai Ihe best specimens, no mailer' from what .part of the country, should be obtained to serve as patterns for others lo follow for the purpose of evolving what is nearest lo perleclion. This serves the purpose not only of a broadening of but of c.reating that keenness and zest which only a wide com- petition can produce. And the farmers of Southern Alberta have this jmieb encouragement, thai Mr. McNicol slates, with'an ex- perience which no one will discredit, that, the farmers in this dis- trict can hold their own any in Canada in the show'ring.' To confine Live Sloek Shows entirely to local products will, by narrowing competition, be missing Hie mark for which lhes< institutions have been framed. A prize in open competition i of far greater value than that won in a circumscribed one.. Thi. and oilier reasons ought lo be enough for those who arc in love witli their labors to aim at producing "standard goods." II should he the great incentive coming far above the mere seeking ifler cups and ribbons. The Standard Securities Co. Real Estate and Investments Owners of Moriiingside Suite 11M15 Sherlock Bldg. P.O.Box 1979 Phone 1291 LET US PHOFIT BY IT TF THE LESSONS TAUGHT at the Mixed Farming Convention are seriously taken to heart, then, not only Lethbridge and the immediate district, but the whole portion of Southern Al- berta, will hnve reason to be thankful for the enterprise which 'started what will be the first of a'scries of annual events. The men who delivered addresses were masters of-the sub- jects-they treated, and this, in addition to the judgment und knowledge backed by experience displayed, cannot but carry conviction to those who heard nnd read their criticisms, observa- tions, and practical advice. In carrying these to over six thousands of iis renders Ihe Herald will be delivering an important message. But this nlone 'will not be enough; it requires an earnest endeavor on the part ;of each one, whether he be directly or indirectly interested in agriculture, to digest the focls seriously and make what good he possibly can of them. In this in a very great measure rests the success of Ihe Convention, and thereby will its powers product- ive for the general good be established. So far as the city of Lethbridge is concerned there remains mapped out for it a policy whicTrit cannot but feel bound to follow sooner or later, and the sooner the better. This is a con- centration of effort towards creating a cold storage plant and an abattoir. As Mr. McMulIen stated, the eslnblishment of an abal- of- the .whole problem of n market for live stock. It is the way in which markets and facilities have de- veloped in other cities, and Lethbridge must inevitably fallow ,suit if the farmers in the district are to have a ready cash mar- ,ket. He further guaranteed that when the farmers would get ,some system for placing their live stock on the market, the 'C. P; R. would come through with the necessary service. This jought to be encouraging. Dr. Rutherford laid stress on the im- jportanee of facilities for storing products during the glut of the jjnarkat These are matters which have no doubt already ap- jpealed to ah1 practical men, and the opinion of has its lvalue in confirming and laying stress on their importance. Farmers at present require much education in the matter of and preparing their products so as to become easily .marketable. But with the creation of facilities means will he furnished for bringing about the desirable end. For the further- ance of agricultural industry there rests'a good deal of respon- pibility on this city. This-'none .mil dispute. Let us, therefore, only be awake to the facts but endeavor to put our views ilnto practice. OUR POINT OF VIEW The Mixed Farming Convention suits will follow. was a success.

The one disiippoinling feature about Ihe Dog Show was the failure of city people lo titlciid. THE LATE SIR R. W. SCOTT PASSING.of Sir Richard Scott removes one of the old- fashioned type of public men, -and a type all too rare in these days of doubtful party tactics. He was not a bitter parti- san in any sense of the word and regarded his public duties from la very high standpoint. He was a kindly spirited man and in the -last ten years of his life gave his services to the country without for the party possibilities. He always had a kindly word for the newspaper man and was one of the few public men at Ottawa in the past thirty years who have been big enough lo forget the political complexion of a newspaper in his dealings r -with the parliamentary correspondents. It Was a custom estab- lished at Ottawa during Hie reign of Sir John A. Macdonald that government news was to be regarded the same'as party patron- age, and representatives of Liberal papers had to be satisfied with the crumbs that fell by the wayside. The Laurier ministry carried out the same policy (the notable exception being Mr. Scott.) He was invariably land to journalists of all types, and the Conservatives always received the best of consideration. Age placed Mr. Scott beyond ihe narrow views of the end he did not consider it a violation of his obligations lo the party chief 40 to every one. Sir Richard did his work well and he was a thorough master of details. His long associa- tion with the public life of the country made him invaluable, and the minister new to public office found in R. W. Sootl a friend indeed. He was the father of much useful legislation r and his name will long live with the temperance people as the author of the Scott Act. Mr. Scott lived a long and useful life. leaves behind nothing ;btit (he must.kindly recollections, and the young men ..of who not in touch with this vet- eran" sbouU read his life story, when it appears, with profit.
