Joiirujl of Aptll 9, MAY THE EIGHTH. THE scheme for beautifying Henderson Park, May Slh, is one which would have rejoic- ed the Sic-art of'John Ruskiri. It is appealing in ils call for voluntary help to aid in adding to the lioaiitr of a city which iilready lias much claim _ Ipr itself on tliis attribute. The idea is well thought out, and only requires the suppori of al! citizens to make it the big suc- cess There is no heller way of celebrating Arbor Day than a whole-hearted effort of the community to help in transforming Henderson.

It is not too early to make preparations DOW for being, free on thai day to take part in action, voluntary and concert- ed! for doing something tivada to the attraction of pie city in which we have our homes.

I am Impressed ivith tlio woaderful climsse of Southern Albtrla. llarch Looking at it from a broatl point of view it hardly seems in the rightful scheme of things tiiat in a Christian land llic study of !he Book of Books should be neglected in our schools. Util in the scheme' of compulsory education; where children of different denominations assemble, Bible study has already proved a difficult matter lo deal with. The argument principally put for- ward against -its acccpiancc as 'a subject in Hie school'curriculum is (hut it is dilUcull to ge! teachers to teach the Bible without an expound- ing of doctrine. To treat it as mere literature in the same way as the writings of Shnkespeiire, Walter Scott and others, been regarded as not a very easy mailer. But the difficulty can be easily got over if cer- tain hours during the week can he apportioned, in which local ministers can visit Hie schools, and undertake the necessary instruction. This we are'-.aware1 is already practised in some purls of the Dominion, and in schools in-Great Britain. But to make it of any value the instruction should be during school hours and not after them, the necessary exceptions being made for Ihosa not of the Cliristian faith. Ii ministers arc agreeable the! labor, aud the authorities are ready 'tb'mcet wiiii iheir mshes, the churches have the solution of tlig in their own. hands. THE HANDICAPS. Dominion government is well-advised on lines it.irppbscs to follow in its immigra- :lioii lo encourage llie irnnii- gralion of only farmers, farm laborers and do- nicsi.ics. the government rightly es- timates vaiiie.of such parlicular- ly to Weslerii Canada.. II goes saying Ihat the perfect scheme of iininigralion is thai which will lead men with praclicul knowledge of agriculture lo come in and Mlile qn'nur'vacant lands. But while the govern- ment deserves credit for what appears a judicious policy, it is by its own ads slullifying ils wise en- deavor. The'farmer who is .invited id. emigrate needs .more; than the prospect of rich soil and Urge crops to induce him to seek a better return for his capital and labor than what he has been accustomed lo. It is not only necessary that he should be indulged in what is a true vision of big acreage and fertile crops. He should be convinc- ed that once lliese crops are raised he will be able ,.lo obtain the best value for tliein in a choice o) markets.-' lie should realise that wilh the land he will a position lo obtain cheap machines snd implements for getting the. best out of it. II should not be left for him lo find out lhal when he comes over lo the Dominion he is handicapnix: both ih'the mailer of means fo dispose of his pro- as he sees fit, and in the priced he is forced to for Ihc necessities for his occnpaliou. Subsequent disappointment, with the effect il necessarily ..will.have on failure" hnriiigrniion, can be.spared by .the removal of present obstacles. In' the interests of the men on the land, and those in he on. liie loud, it is csscnlial lhal they should haye the benefit of unrcslriclcd markets and cheap agricultural implements. This can only be effected by meeting the. farmers' just demands. "..'Remove Iho handicaps and (ho problem of ob- the most desirable immigrants will to a j-ery large extent ho solved. It would be folly to try and guess what R.'li. Bennett vdll do next, but il would be a good wag- er to bet Ihat he won't do anything until he crawls out from under the bed. .OTJR POINT OF VIEW over 250 tons.
