In view of,the fact tliat there has been some dissatisfaction expressed against pitting the stock of Southern Alberta against those raised in other parts of the Dominion, there was need for some such expression of opinion. In the interests of agricultural industry, as confined to the breeding and raising of live stock,, the idea that shows are to be regarded as fields for cup-hunting alone should be disabused. This may be their secondary uses and should so be viewed. What is primarily intended is that the best specimens, no matter from whatjPart of the country, should be obtained to serve as patterns for others to follow for the pui-pose of evolving, jvhat is nearest to perfection.. ......; . : : This serves .the purpose not only of a broadening of views but of creating that keenness and zest which only a wide competition can produce. And the farmei-s of Southern Alberta have this much encouragement, that Mr. McNicol states, with'an experience which no one will discredit, that, the farmers in this district can hold their own with any in Canada in the show ring. To confine Live,Stock Shows entirely to local products will, by narrowing competition, be missing the mark for which these institutions have been framed. A prize in open competition is of far greater value than that won in a circumscribed one. This and other reasons ought to be enough for those who are in love with their labors to aim at producing "standard goods." It should be the great incentive coming far above the mere seeking tifter cups and ribbons. The Rale Autocrat J (Mall and Empire)^ A few.days ago a rumor flew about W^Bhlnffton. to the effect that govern-nieit clerks, would be expected to begin work at 8 o'clock In the morning, instead of at 9. Whether the new n.dmlnlstration Intended to put this change into effect may never be Ttnown, but'certain It is that the Wea has beei^ abandoned.vand for the very ,�^ood reason that It wda found' that a, mestlc servantu would refuse' to get breakfast before 8. It appears that the qwen of the kitchen is the real boss at Washington, as elsewhere. OUR POINT OF VIEW |F THE LESSONS TAUGHT at tlie Mixed-'t'arming Convention ; are seriously taken to heart, then* not only Lethbridge and Ihe immediate, district, but the whole portion of Southern Al-, � feerta, T[vill have reason ^o be thankful for the enterprise which �HBtarted what will be the first of afefiries of annual events. � * The men who delivered addresses were masters of "the sub-(Jects they treated, and this, in addition to the judgment and knowledge backed by experience displayed, cannot but carry -iionviction to those who heard and read their criticisms, observa-ijions, and practical 6dyice. j:^!'; ' " * , - In carrying these to over sixjthousaiids of its readers the Herald wiU be delivering an important message. But this alone ^11 not be enough; it requires an earnest endeavor on the part sSllpf each one', wheflier^he be directly or mdirectly interested in wK�priculture,tov digest: the'facts srarious^y and make wjhat good he 1^,: |)ossibly can of them. In this in a very great measure rests the si^ccess of the Convention, and thereby will its powers product-^ t Jve for the general good be estabhshed. ...: / vi So far as the city of Lethbridge is concerned there remains ftrroapped out for it a policy which'^it cannot but feel bound to iK'sfj>llow sooner or later, and the sooner the better. This is a con-J^Vcentration of effort towards creating a cold storage plant and an ?�i Abattoir. A8iidge must inevitably follow ,!!|uit: if the farmers in the district are to have a ready cash mar; Bjfe'ftti He further guaranteed that when the farmers would get i-lpme system for placing their live stock on the market, the JEiiPiJR. would CO with-the necessary service. This ^1 jought to be encouraging.. Dr. Rutherford laid stress on the im-W pgrtance of facilitle* for storing products during the glut of the J^; |igarlcet. These are matters which" havei no doubt already ap-pealeVi to aU men, and the o]^imon of experts has its ll/Mglue in conflrriiing and laying stress on their importance. recpiire much ^education in the matter of )^]|(fjndling and preparing their products so as to become easily jk|j||iirkbtable. But with the creation of faftilities means will be ||^|niished for biinging about the desirable end. For the further-^'ce ,pf,,agricultural industry there restsa good deal of respon-Sjbifityon this city. This hone ^^W^ Let us, therefore, f :pti^lt>nly^be. awake to the factsbut endeavor to put our views The Mixed, Farming Convention was a success, suits wiU follow. Good re- The reduction of freight rates 20 per cent, will make some difference, but another 10 per cent, should have been added. The one disappointing feature about the Dog Show was the failure of city people to attend. The Navy Bill forced through the House of Commons by .means of the gag Jaw suggests to Dr. Clark a hearse passing through the cemetery gates. -9 If the city council is anxious to have the Sjtreet cars patronized in waririweatlier for pleasui-epurposes.iti^^iiU.be necessary to make Henderson Park the magnet. ( The high prices paid for cattle at'itlieEaiB demonstrates the desire of farmers To have the very highestflgnide of stock .possible. ^.. ' Let us hope that tliere will be no dallying irf'connecfion with the subway plans. The woi-k should be started at the soonest possible moment. The'subway is a real necessity. The gag law has passed in the House of Commons. The" Senate shoui'iJ'know how to treat legislation forced through by unfair means. if' The Convention was composed of representative farmers, and all said Lethbridge is the spot in which tQ locate an interna' elevator. -  J . , THE LATE SIR R. W. SCOTT illS^HlEvP^ one of the old- I * f asliioned type  of public men, and ^a type all too rare in 'jtelestl days of doubtful party tactics. He*was not a bitter parti-esjpin any sense o.f therword and regarded his public duties from "Iv-JljfjVery high standpoint. He was a kindly ispirited man and in the Mpt ten years of his life gave his services to the country wthout Bxucli^regard forthe party possibilities. He always had a kindly j^ord'for the newspaper man and was one of the few. public men Ottawa in the past thirty years who have been big enough to 'forget the political complexion of a newspaper In his dealings \^]th the parliamentary correspondents/ �It-was a custom estab-lishtd at Ottawa during the reign of Sir John A. Macdonald that cmment news was to he regarded the same as p�rty patron-jate, and representatives of Liberal papers, had to. be satisfied ^ lib |]hejcrumbs that fell by the wayside. The Laurier ministry Wrrip^i; out the same policy(the notable exception being Mr. ^'coll^')!,-' He was invariably kind to journalists of all types, and X^c ^bhservatives always received the best of consideration, ja placed'Mri Scott beyond the narrow views of the partizan, lllihei^^isnoticonsider it a vb his obligations to the -%!;^lbi(^f?jb*''|)e^f8ir to every one.

There must be a means of disposing of produce in order to encourage its production. The story that R.'B. Bennett Vould likely enter the Borden cabinet was merely a Calgary dream. Mr. Borden would have a fiiie time-6f it placatihg^his followers with two Calgary men in the cabinet > Aside from this the result of the Alberta 'elections is-^not likely to commend Richard B. to the Hon.

Dr. C. B. Pltblado removes from the Presbyterian church in Canada one of the outstanding figures of 'tlie past thirty-five years, Dr Pltblado came to Winnipeg in the days when the city wa'p In the making. He had the splendid gritl the earnestness, and solidity of character found in meri representative of the best in tbe Scottish race. In adddltioh, he had an enthusiasm iu his.work that was exceptional. He fired men to deeds of emulation. � Little wonder lhat he built up one of the strongest congregations in Canada, a monument to the churchi life In Western Canada After a few years absence, he return etf to Winnipeg and reared up a sec ond powerful congregation; His in fluence ^was not confined to SVinnl peg. He was unsparing la his help throughout 'the country. He was Indeed well-fitted for pioneer work in a ijerw city. Thousands today will mourn the loss of a Irleiid and wise counsellor. His active ministerial life ended a few years ago, owing to poor Health, but his good deeds were such that he remained'a living force in the church, and his occasional, visits to this city were welcomed by men and women of all denomi'uations, and in every walk of lite.
