This should be done both on ac- count of the pupils and on account of the public. On account of the pupils -they are now graduated help- less, with no practical knowledge, and with a dislike for country life, and generally drift to the cities.. On ac- count of the public because if we are to continue to pay for the education of all children, it ought to be with the result that when the process is completed they will not become a further charge ou the public in the future, as they now continually do. jreat change, and the country now suf t'ers from drought. We have lately; had several days on which the sky looked threatening and seemed to indi- cate that rain was eminent, but the re- sult was never more than a few drops. The country needs rain, and needs it badly; the gardens are suffering, and' i he hay ranches up the Eik have no j crop to speak of; and most of all, we need it to quench the fires which are still smouldering in the valley, and ready to break out afresh with the first high wind.

SNAKES IN CAFE TERRIFY PEOPLE Policemen Enter The Place With Drawn Revolvers and Reptiles Hide Spokane, Aug. large rattle- snakes, which escaped from a snake charmer's show last summer while it was occupying a story at 10 Bernard street, and which have remained in that vicinity since, are causing a reign of terror among tenants of buildings IRRIGATED CROPS THIS YEAR Miss Hind, the Winnipeg Free Press correspondent, reports 'that -the crops on irrigated lands In this district are poor, not 'because of irrigation -but on account of the carelessness of fann- ers who neglected to use the water at the time it ought to have been used.. There are some good crops on irri- gated lands because there are some fanners, who know how and when to use water. They do not leave their ditches in bad repair and try to clean j them when they found rain had not i fallen, as expected. These men keep their ditches for the water to flow throHgh them at any moment. The farmer on irrigated land, who pays for the water and does not use it at 'the right time, has only him- self to iblame. This season teachei its lesson to this type of fanner. In the future he will not sit on the stoop Baiting for rain to fall bat he wiU see that his ditches are clean and what water he pays for is on the, land at the proper time. Then he will have good crops. iastic welcome at Calgary that Mait- land McCarthy, 2tf. P., is already -be- ginning to shake in his boots. Mr. Magrath ought to make a call on Sir James Whitney, and tell him to abolish the patronage system. The Calgary Herald deserves cred- it, and the engraving company also, for the enterprise displayed in getting cuts of scenes upon Sir Wilfrid Laur- ier's arrival in Calgary at 2 o'clock on Friday afternoon last, in the same afternoon's paper. That's a record worth about Geo. Graham is so popular with the ladies that the first thing he knows he will be asked to act as sponser for a woman's suffrage 'bill in Parlia- ment.

Frorf Other Sanctums THE SORE HEAD TRIBUNE {Winnipeg Free Press) There is in this city an alleged., "in- dependent" -daily paper (much given to thanking God that it is not, in its methods and ideals, like the party newspapers) which has made a dis- play of native and congenial ruffian- ism in connection with Sir Wilfrid Lauriers visit to the West which not even the most venomous party organ will ever be able to eclipse. IS CLIMATE CHANGING (Hosmer, B. C., Times.) Are the climatic conditions along the PRACTICAL EDUCATION The demands of the public for a more practical education for their children is being recognized by tb n control of di aiiairs of the country. In this re- it looks as though the public leading the leaders in siany cases have been slow in i rscogEizing the demands of the pub- lic. change o? sentiment which de- rnaads zrore practical teaching in the >silic schools has extended even to tie grea.: universities, rfnner- 1- education in the higher branches thought to consist chiefly of a smattering of the classics an.1 of eral literature and history it would have been thought rather a re- proach had it been supposed to hold j any relation to practical everyday life. I But now at the great universities not j only are all the sciences and pro- fessions caught but" instruction is giv- en, in politics and ,-business, recogniz- j ing that careful training Is essential j in every field of human activity. j The same fact is apparent in the extensive practical courses of the uni- versities, in the business courses, in the high schools, where also special agricultural classes ar e 'being intro- duced with success, in the courses of manual training and domestic science. In every way education has a tend- ency to adapt Itself to the prepara- tion of tha youth for 'the practical as well as the cultural part of their live.s. The more the question Is consider- in that vicinity, the reptiles being seen yesterday in the cellar of the building Laurier was given such an enthus- where 'they gained their freedom. The police have been called upon .to aid in killing or capturing them. An employee of a restaurant at 10 Bernard street went to the cellar of the building yesterday and in moving a bos saw .the two snakes coiled up behind it. They made Mm acquainted with his great danger by vigorously shaking their rattlers and hissing. The man came rushing from the cellar as badly frightened as if he had seen a ghost. Policeman Ount and Benway called and with drawn revolvers went to the cellar, but the snakes had retired. A search failed to locate them. From the cellar of the building where .they were seen yesterday the snakes can readily go under other thus keeping tenants in that vicinity in constant fear. It is supposed that the reptiles have been living on mice and food scraps. That life in the cellars has not lessen- ed their activity was readily shown when the restaurant employee disttirb- ed them yesterday. The police will aid in any way possi- ble to do away with the two reptiles, and whenever che tenants of the build- ings desire a systematic search will be made. One of the men, who conducted the snake show is still living in Spokane and is known to the police and wheth- er he will be called upon to assist in j the search has not been decided. NEW STATIONS AT BLAIRMORE AND HILLCREST Blainnore, Aug and Sin- clair have just secured the contracts for the building of two large depots for the Canadian Pacific Railway com- pany. Blainnore has so recently developed into a large and progressive town that the present fairly large depot is far too inadequate .to accomodate the increased trade of this place, and the C. P. R. find it necessary to erect a two story building twenty-two feet wide and eighty-six feet long with a large basement to supply the needs of the business people and travelling public. The other depot will be erected at Hillcrest. This .building will be about the same size as the one which is being erected at Blainnore, Another large Party of Excursionists went to see the ARROW LAKE ORCHARDS On Friday morning to inspect the wonderful crop of fruit, which is greater than ever this year, in the rich, picturesque valley.
