Jewel." The Whitney government removed an efficient division court clerk at Peterboro in order to appoint a de- feated Conservative candidate, Col. J. W. Miller, an office. And then they talk about a reform of the civil service. KEEP THE SCHOOLS OPEN On account of the crop failure some of schools .are considering closing the schools until next year. There is no question that the main- tenance of a school will be a hardship to many but the settlers should do utmost to keep them open. Ed- ucation is too important to be -aban- doned and sacrifices ought to be made to enable the children to continue their course. The future will well re- pay the parents. From Other Sanctums Can Theodore Roosevelt .come Can Theadore Roosevelt come back? According to CoL Nelson, publisher of the Kansas City Star, he can, and he recalled Teddy's recent visit to Pennsylvania to remark: "You notice that Col. Roose- relt went to the coal mines and not to the National City bant; that ne to Father Curran and not to J. Pierpont Morgan." There's where Roosevtlt is strong. FRANK OLIVER ENTITLED TO THANKS (Macleod Advertiser) Tie thanks of the homesteaders are due to Hon.

There was a rapid rush of feet down, the stairway, then a voice said, "1 don't smell any gas.'" "Better light the jet" Mrs. Wester- eigh suggested tremulously. "Here's i match."

NOT A NON PARTISAN TRIP Sir Wilfrid Laurier's tour through Western Canada, every person ought to know, had in view the promotion of the interests of the Liberal party of which he is the leader. The Cal- gary Herald is very wrathy because Sir Wilfrid talked politics, real down- right party politics In that city after having been given a non partisan wel- come. Sir Wilfrid did met ask Calgary to give him s. non partisan reception. He went there primarily to address a j meeting in the interests of the Liber-i al party. Calgary, however, showed the good judgement, which the Cal- :gary Herald does not seem to recog- nize, to receive the Premier of Cana- da as a great Canadian and not as a politician. Sir Wilfrid did not abuse their hospitality in that respect In his address in reply to the civic wel- come he steered absolutely away from politics. The public meeting at night was another matter. It was arranged by the Liberals and was a political af- fair. The Calgary Conservatives, who participated in the non partisan wel- come, didn't expect'the meeting was for any other purpose. If the Herald imagined Sir Wilfrid was going to give a talk on "How to Play Golf" or "How to Avoid Being Killed in a Train naturally it has reason to be peevish. continent of Canada behind them .with its vast and vexing problems, before them across the Pacific, the Orient with its unevangelized millions, there will come to the men of faith a new vision, and all distrust and self-pride and the little things that mar -will be consumed in a new-born passion to preach the gospel of hope and peace and good-will to creature. First things first will solve the problems and save the Church. WHAT'S IN A NAME? (Toronto Star) The Rochester Union and Advertis- er has propounded a question which promises to remain unanswered.

BLOW OFF GAS' WELL FOR PREMIER LAURIER Medicine Hat, Aug. is a proposition on foot to provide Sir Wil- frid Laurier with something novel in the way of entertainment, that he can get in no city on the tour outside of Medicine Hat This is nothing less than to blow off one of the gas wells the night he is here and have one of tnose impressive illuminations which are never forgotten by those who wit- ness them. It is proposed that the piping be laid to the river bank so that the reflection from the water will add to the grandeur of the scene, and the bridges will make it still more picturesque.
