'T'HK scheme for beaulifying Henderson Park, on Jlay Slli, is one which would have rejoic- ed the heart of John Ruskin. It is appealing in its .call for voluntary.help to nid in adding lo the beauty of a city which already has much claim for priding itself on this attribute. The idea is well thought out, and only rcrntires Ihe support of all citizens to make it the hig suc- cess which it promises. There is no better way of celebrating Arbor.Day than a whole-hearted effort of the community to help in transforming Henderson Park into the leafy plensaunce which niake it ideal fo: .iummer evenings' rendez- vous. II will he :i unique picnic, a veritable labor of love, winch mil be an occasion for happy reminiscence by those who engage.in it. fiy sallying out in thousands to .the park on .May Sth'we shall have an opportunity of showing that community..pf_spirit which is ah important asset in our chic welfare. It is not too early to make preparations now for being free on that clay lo lake part in action, voluntary and concert- ed: for doing something to add lo the attraction of the city in which we have our homes. it would not be a bad idea to have in readiness a volume on which will be inscribed the names of all those who look part in Ihe beautifying of Henderson Park on Arbor Day. It will he an in- teresting memento to be preserved amongst the archives of the pity Hall.

Looking al it-from n broad point of view it liarrlly seems in the rightful scheme of things that in a Christian InncI the study of the Book tif Bonks should be neglected in our schools. But in the scheme of compulsory education, where children of different denominations assemble, Bible study has already proved a difficult matter (o deal with. The argument principally put for- ward against its acceptance as a subject in Ihf school curriculum is that it is difficult to yei teachers to tcacli the Bible without an expound- ing of doctrine. To treat it ns mere literature in the same way as the writings of Shakespeare, Walter Scott and others, has, consequently, been regarded as not a very easy matter. i But the difficulty can be easily got over if cer-! tniu hours during the. week be apportioned, in which local ministers can visit the schools, and undertake "the necessary instruction. This are aware is already practised in some parts of the in schools in Great Britain. But to make it of any value, the instruction should j be during school hours and not after necessary exceptions being made for those not of the Christian faith. If ministers are agreeable lo undertake the In the old days it was the "four-in- now it is the "four-in-car.1 Where men used Jo seek "blood8 in horses, they now seek Bclass0 in tires.

T IUC Dominion government is well advised on Ihe lines il proposes to follow in its immigra- tion scheme, to-cncourage the immi- gration of only farmers, farm laborers and do- mestics. By so 'doing the government 'rightly cs- limales Ilia value of such immigration, particular- ly to Western Canada.. It'goes saying that ihe perfect scheme of immigration is Ilia I which will lend men with practical knowledge of agriculture to come in and settle on our vacant lands. But while Ihe govern- ment desetTes.crcdit for wlmt appears a judicious policy, it is by its own acts stultifying its wise en- deavor. -The farmer wlio is invited-to emigrate needs .more- llipn Ihe prospect of rich'soil and large crops lo induce him to seek rt belter return for his.cipitnl and labor than what he has been jicciistonicd io. It is not only necessary that he Should be indulged in is a true vision of big acreage and fertile crops. He should he convinc- ed that oncc these crops are raised be will be able .to obtain the best value for them in a choice ol. ile should realise lhal with Ihe land he will be in a position fo obtain cheap machines and implements for getting the best out of it. It should not be left for him to find oiiitlint when lie comes over fo the Dominion he is hrindicappcd jbollt in the matter of'means lo dispose of his pro- duct as he sees fit, and in the price he is forced io pay for the necessities for his occupalidii.' Subsequent with.Ihe effect it necessarily, will have on future immigration, can be spnrtd the removal of present obstacles. In !he inleresls of Ihe men on the land, and those lo be on the land, it is essential that they should have the benefit of unrestricted markets and cheap agri6ullurfll implements. This can onlv hp effected by meeting the fanners' just demand's. Heniovc tho handicaps and ihe problem of'6b- lainins the most desirable immigrants will lo a yery large extent he solved. OUK POINT OF VIEW It would he folly to try and guess what R. B. Hennelt will do next, but it would he a good wag- er lo bet lhal he won'l do anything until he crawls out from under the bed. It seems Iliat the report was spread through- out the .west. that Magrnth was sliort of seed wheat, when in reality mi over supply exists. Jla- grath should form an Ad Club and treat the pur- vevor of this news. If one fly .were lo lay eggs rm May 1st, and its progeny allowed reasonable opportunity to fulfil their natural destiny, we would have severity-two and a half tjumu'llion of flics by the middle of August. Xow is the time to get busy. So they can'l see Lelhbridge from Ottawa, even Ihrough the big telescope. Not even the big wafer lank, which would have made an admir- able pedestal, was high enough. Perhaps the com- missioners would consent to carry it around with them, up'in the air. The churches oml the press seem lo be peeved with .one another in Calgary. II is the easiest thing in the world for the churches lo criticise the press, and for the press to conic hack nt flic church, so is liable lo exist in- definitely in. Calgary. Calgarians arc just trying lo figure out which they will become Ihe most excited over, the Mexi- can war or the latest report that oil lias been struck. If the rumors, regarding the lallcr arc (rue, some of the dark fluid might he splashed over the troubled Wafers of the Gulf, nud there wouldn't be any excitement. THE BIBLE IN THE SCHOOL. OOMETHiN'G in the way of an agitation lias been started amongst the churches for hav- ing (he Bibja taught in our public schools. The matter is not altogether.new. It tons' been a sub- ject of controversy ever since the system of .com- education lini beon iqlixxluccd, Af lust the Medicine Hat Times has found something to slack up on the credit side of the Dorden ledger. Hefcrring to the falling off ii homestead entries in Ihe west during the past few months, the tnliflhlcncd Times says that the sit- uation can he explained away to the credit of the Bordcn government. Yes, the Bordcn govern- ment has n credit item, but the Times ncfilccfs to say how it got there. There wasn't any niorr room on Ihe debit side, and ihe item had (o somewhere. t Arc all large.
