Mr, Candy of Edmonton will need to be a very tempting dainty in order WRITE AS YOU PLEASE One of the main objections to the present system -of education has been the poor penmanship of the students that are graduated from the schools. Educators haye endeavored to find some- method of writing that would penmen. The old Spen- cerian system was 'blamed for the production of poor writers and was discatded. The vertical system was touted as the remedy for the trouble and was almost universally adopted and all the pupils at school were re- quired to write the vertical hand. But the percentage of good writers be- came no larger. Then what is known as the medium slant' system, was taken, up, -being a compromise between the old Spencerian and the vertical But the results have ieen no -better. Mrs. Young, the. superintendent of schools in Chicago. struck a pop- ular idea when she said recently to the pupils of that city: "Write any way you please, -but write legibly and fast" .As a matter of fact, the merchant, the and the firms the 'DOTS and girls may have to write ior when they go to work do not give a rap for vertical or slant. What is wanted is, as Mrs. Young puts it, legibility and speed, and the clerk may hold his pen like sC dagger, or a club, in i right hand or left, so long as what he "writes can easily be read. Handwriting is an indication of itf" dividuality, and 'the tendency of the public school manner of teaching is to make all write like automata. The penmanship of a mature man bears no resemblance to that of his youth. to win any farmers away from section with his sweet talk. this The temperance enthusiasts ought to present the Canadian warship the Kainbow with, a cut glass water set as a tribute to the teetotal principles of the officers and crew, Bryan and Roosevelt have both been turned down by the party ma- chines but that isn't proof that they have lost their grip upon the grea mass of the people. Side Lights As one of the White Star steam- ships came up New York harbor the other day, a grimy coal barge floated immediately in front of her. "Clear out of the way with that old mud shouted an officer on the bridge. A round, sun-burned face appeared over the cabin hatchway. "Are ye the captain of that answered the officer. "Then spake to yer equals. I'm the captain o' came from th barge. A young gentleman of the colore persuasion had promised his girl pair of long white gloves for a Chris mas gift. Entering a. large depar ment score, he at last found the coun ter where these goods were display ed, and, approaching rather hesita ingly, remarked, "Ah want a pair o' loves." "How long -do you want in quired the business-like clerk. "Ah doesn'i want fo' to rent 'em ah wants fo' to buy replied the other, zine. Maga Dick McBride's greeting to Sir Wil- frid was so friendly that the Liberal leader must have been in doubt as to whether he was after a Senatorship or Supreme Court judgeship. Gleichen is on the map larger than ever now. Scott came back and hand- ed over the Liberal nomination, and another convention will have to be ailed to select a standard bearer.

From a reliable source your correspondent learned that the old charter for the railway in these parts was handed over to the new company. The appli- cants for this charter, -which was ranted by the provincial government 1906, were E. J. Mitchell, H. E. Hyde, J. H. Schofield, T. Lebel, A. C. Kemmis, J. E. Woods -and J. J. Flentot. At one period of its his- tory J. A.'

MAUNSELL INDEPENDENT The Macleod Advertiser still per- sists in believing that it is in the in- terests of the Macleod district that Robert. Patterson, should be returned to the 'legislature. One of its argu- ments is as follows: "Mr. Patterson will not be in oppo- sition to the Government wnen he goes 'to the Legislature, but at the same time he will not be bound Toy a" pledge which virtually ties his hands and stops his mouth. He will be in the position, to criticise, if anything comes up which needs criticism. Had a few such men as he been in the House last winter the Great Water-} ways fiasco might have .been avoided." As a matter of fact the independ- ence that was displayed at Edmonton last winter was 'by men elected as Liberals. They did just as the Adver- tiser argues Mr. Patterson would do, voted against a transaction they tttought was wrong. Mr. Maunsell was opposed to that deal too. He came out openly at the time in opposition' to the deal. His ought to sstisfy tlis slsct- ors of Macleod that he is not ruled and dictated to by the party machine. He is a Liberal and has confidence in the Sifton administration, but he is man enough to assert his own opinions and advise the government on matters of policy and oppose it, if he thinks it is doing wrong. Mr. Patterson can- not do any more or as much. Win Make Votes (Saskatoon Phoenix) GOT.

R. .Booth is a wealthy Ottawa lumberman. He moves in the busi- ness world without -ostentation, but that he is a. man with a heart is shown Ijy his recent action in paying his men .for the time the Ottawa mill was closed owing to the Grand Trunk strike. He wasn't compelled to pay a cent, but the way he felt about it was expressed in these words to his men: "I thought, gentlemen, that I could stand the loss better than you could.

Picture Mr. McG-uire has worked hard to have better railway facilities for Pincher Creek, and the hope is generally ex- pressed that he will soon be advant- ageouslv repaid for his labors. As the Pincher Creek, Cardston and Montana Railway Co. succeeded in obtaining a charter for this railway before appearing on the scene oi oper ations, from the Dominion govern- ment at its last session, they have now in their possession two separate charters by which they can proceed to build a railway within the limits of time specified in each. At the headquarters of the railway company they are awaiting the re- ports of three engineers now out on the survey, with the return of whom the profiles and other plans of the line will be drawn up for the use of contractors. As time goes on confidence is re- placing skepticism among those who were doubtful of the railway question ifom its outset. A Social Affair Pincher Creek Court No. 4138, I.O. F., held a social or "At Home" in the Masonic Hall last night, at which there were 100 invited guests present. A. E. Cox, who is a High Cgurt number, occupied the eaair. The aSaix was much in the nature of a banquet and proved, a most enjoy- able one. Songs were rendered by Messrs. McMurdo and Saville, togeth- er with a selection by the orchestra and a cornet solo by Mr. Smart prior to the excellent menu which was served. After the wants of tee inner man had been attended to cne or two tcssts were proposed aitd re- sponded to. "The King" met with the usual response by the company standing and singing the National Anthem. "The Land we Live In" had a capable reply from John Eer- ron, M.P., "Sister Societies" by R. K. Ormond{ "I.O.F." by Dr. Wade, of Calgary, and "The Ladies" by Rev. J. D. Hull. In the remarks of Mr. Herron stress was laid on the Ferimiy of mis particular portion of Alberta, which was incidentally sec- onded by Dr. Wade, when he held the floor. Another song from Mr. McMurdo brought that part of the program to a close. The chairman thanked those who had assisted to- ward the enjoyment of the company, specializing the ladies and the splen- did orchestra. The pleasurable gath- ering wound up with a dance which riO 4-AA a acfiouimoie nour in the rooming. MORNINGSIDE The Key to the Growth of Lethbridge NO INTEREST The NO TAXES Standard Securities Co.
