The temperance p-eople in Ontario can't get rid of the bar intickly enough. Local option doesn't cover enough territory. "Banish the liar" can't come until a general election at any rate, so the temperance people of Ontario couurry aro going to try and make the county dry fry resurrect ing the old Scott Act.

Not only Is lie honorary j president of the Hoard of Control of I past two years at the exposition in connection with the Dry Farming Congress. Hon. Duncan .Marshall has been the man behind the gnu both times, and has attended the sessions to see Alberta carry off the lug prizes. The Congress is to be held in Alberta this year, and Alberta cannot compete in the grand premium event. Nevertheless the provincial government has been behind the movement from the very first. Th-e government, has mads it possible for Lethbridge to hold the Congress here. The citizens of this cily are too broad minded to quibble about a few feet of space in an exhibit. It's really n case of much ado about, nothing. The Western Spirit "Of CAN'T keep these new western towns in the rear. They must, be up to the front even if the statutes of the province seem to ,])ut a barrier in the way. Coronation is a new town on the C. P. H. line east -from Lacombe. The council, �with characteristic enterprise, decided to install a waterworks system as a means of- establishing tire protection. But to await the ratification of the bylaws and the selling of debentures would delay the starting of work until late In the fall, and make it impossible to secure the desired pro community aro raising the required [ amount of money at once on their joint liability, that work may be started forthwith. Edmonton is. not to be ouldone in history on a "Witter of this sort, so the Bulletin recalls that the low-level bridge across the Saskatchewan rive* was secured by similar public-spirited action on the part of a number of the business men of the then "town of Edmonton."

To avoid j get behind n movement to build the i this delay the business men of the bridge at Diamond City! Our Industrial Prestige LETHBRIDGE wants Industries but not through any foolish bargain. In the meantime this city lndustrially is the biggest point iu the west. That's a broad and strong statement, but it's true. What other city has the pay roll we have in our mines? Also what other city In the west has ag many-men employed in its industries as we have in Lethbridge? Don't worry about Lethbrldge. It's Industrial prestige is already fixed. It will grow, too, for the whole country about its in underlaid with coal and as the west grows more mines : tv-jli be opened in the district tribu-;tary to this city. Again let us keep up the mixed farming agitation. The more mixed farming in the district the more certain we can he of new industries such as creameries, po.rk packing plants and flax mills. Bonusing, exempting and giving away power and sites are the worst methods used in getting industries. Create the stuff at your doors that demand manufactures and manufactures will come. The city should outline its industrial policy when it is dealing with the Iron Works application. That industry deserves generous treatment in its effort to expand and become a greater concecu, ihan. it has. been in the past. It 'will be a good motto for the city to adopt "ISneourage the industries we Already have." Seeing the West From a Chair Car SA.M SHARP, Conservative member of the Commons for North Ontario, has been on a trip  through Western Canada and on his .return to the east, handed out an interview in which Western Canada and the Liberals are maligned with true consistency, for Sam Sharp has not jet risen - above the narrow- guage [Standard in. politics, and probably never will. Sam apparently was summed by the unanimity of opinion in Western Canada in favor of wider markets. Being one of those individuals whose success in politics depends on his ability to appeal to prejudice and passion, Sam charges the Liberals of the west with being annexationists.. He is reported* as say-: ing: .... . ' "Some of the Grits, out. there '. are talking ou the tariff as if they were annexationists. It is the whole history of their pafty. With them it is either rule or ruiu. �When in power they are imp-er-ialists, when out of power annexationists, "Reciprocity is still being Ltlk-of in the west, but it will never carry, in Canada in a hundred ' years, and: from a Conservative standpoint, it, is, just as well for the Grits' to. keep on' shouting | about, it." If Mr. Sharp is correctly reporied he should -be ashamed of himself. He! knew that the statement he made was not true, but that figured little go long as it. was designed to sound like sweet music to the element, upon which such men as Sharp depend for political existence. Mr. Sharp did not return to Ontario and point out economic weakness in the demand for wider markets: .he didn't contend that it would not be a good thing for western Canada andindeed all Canada to have another outlet for grain. Sam couldn't do Uhat. He'is lined up with the ..lntereauj opposing the -demands of the rarmj3ri'\3 west, and having no argument, resorts to the unfair tactics by which the people of Ontario were stopified in September last. Iu his interview th-e member for North Ontario, however, convicts himself of inconsistency. After prating about the annexation sentiment in 'thV ivest"In order to Injure the Liberal party in the eyes of the east, he proceeds to boost. -Mr. Borden's naval policy, which has not yet. been an-rtiouhfeed, and 'represents the western people' us l^eing ijuaniinous, in th-eir clangor for a'Ji|iiy.' Mr.'Borden's unknown pott'cy'J'appeals to them strongly." "Out- fljefe," -he says, "they do nothing b/ihah;es.; 'The'V want three or four' IJrewlWughis .given right away. Th-ey are Strong for the old Hag (btfl apoligy .oi patriotism to the tuothierljind:-''-. �'�';-..'� 1 Did ever "such unmitigated, non-senae;.e.manage', from a public man. 'Annexationist^, "aiui ultra-imperialists all rotled into one, western people nius.t Biirely'be fearfully and wonderfully made. � '  The' Interview, published broadcast was designed to appeal to that peculiar type of Tcry found In Ontario, who imagines- himself to he more loyal than other men, and who regards all who differ -from him as traitors. !t is men of that ilk who place such men as Sharp in parliament. .Mr. Sharp, lik-p the great bulk of Mr. Borden's following, is lined up with the enemies of the western farmer. OUR POINT OF VIEW Let us get back to the days cr" the market basket. Dave Elton will announce the races at the fair. No doubt everyone will hear. Th-ere Js evidently going to be as Mg a row on, between LaFollette and Roosevelt as between Roosevelt and Taft. Meanwhile Woodrow Wilson will continue progressing to victory.

(Chicago Tribune) The housewife with her preserving kettle was a'bacteriologist. -Dr. Evans rates her along with Metclniikoff fimd Koch. She did not know anything about the Bulgarian hucilltis, but she started with the cherries and worked through the small fruits into pears and peaches, made up va,ts of tomato and apple butter, and dozens of jars of ilampon preserves, and'her cellar* would have merited Metchinkoff's study. Thus *b-e wa.^ a good bacteriologist. With her market basket she was a good economist. She and the farms met each other half way. The farmers-drove in to the market and she went to ihelr stalls,, getting the advantage 'not only c-f selecting but of low prices. In two important respects her home was well founded.-bacteriologically and economically. When she went to the large city from the small town she carried the preserving kettle with hei-probably not the great, bright copper kettle that had to be stirred so assiduously with a long handled paddle, because if it. burned once it never was safe again; probably not that one; it was built on too generous proportions -for a flat; but sh-e carried a preserving kettle of some sort, and some fruits went into glass jars every year. ISaclerlologically she remained an expert, but economically she suffered a lapse. The market basket was left behind. The telephone took its place. In New York the Housewives' league is endeavoring to restore the -basket to its old time uses. Truck markets are'being opened to which Long Island farmers may bring their produce; where the farm and the housewife again may' irfeet each other hall way. Mrs. Julian Heath is president cf the league and head of the market busker movement, Most of the women are trying to do their marketing with shopping bags. Mrs. Heath insists on Che basket. A lish market has been .operating for some time Under the patronage of the league, its success encouraged the opening of the truck market. "Baskets are really es se.ntlal in this campaign," said .Airs. Heath the day the truck market open ed. "I've got enough vegetables in mine to last four days, and they cost | me only Fifi cents." i The New York committee on mar- i ket prices and costs, a special snb-j division of the state food investigat- ing commission, bus reported that it finds the marketing of food in Now York city costs $1 :>u.O(Ki.oon annually, j Forty-five per cent, of the whole cost j of food is In the handling. The mar-1 ket basket evades considerable of that J tax. The commission does not recommend the establishment of public! markets in a city the size of Nov,' j York, fearing that heavy fixed charges j might be imposed on the community j and the markets thus established be! incapable of changing with changing conditions of population. It suggests, that for large cities the consolidation of small retail stores would minimize the cost, of handling. The Mew;? York women are not bothering with; "fixed charges." Tbcy are simply taking the market basket and. hunting .low prices by the nearest traveled route. "fust .for a joke His Sermon "How about the sermon?"

Couldn't Both Be Christians In a Kansas town where two brothers are engaged in the retail coal business a revival was recently held and the elder of the brothers was converted. For weeks the brother who had "got religion" tried to persuade the other to join the church. One day he asked: "Why can't you join the church like 1 did?" "It's a fine thing for you to belong to the church," replied the younger brother. "If 1 join the church, who'll weigh the coal?"-Kansas City Times.

"In Byrne's day police protection ended at 42hd street; you could do as you pleased after that, f'tit the crook who should now try to do as he pleased anywhere at all in New York would be as badly left in his expectation of immunity as my friend Smith was left the other day in his dozen bass. "Smith the other day went fishing. He caught nothing, so on his way back home lie telephoned to his pro vision dealer to send, a dozen bass around to him on his arrival. " 'Well, what luck?' "'Why, splendid, of course,' he replied. 'Didn't, (he boy bring that do;;-en bass I gave him?' "MrB. Smith started. Then she smiled. "'Well, yes I suppose he did,' she said. 'There they are.' ?And she showed poor Smith a dozen bottles of Bass ale."-New York Tribune. THE THERMO A WONDERFUL BOTTLE IT KEEPS: - COLD LIQUIDS COLD FOR 48 HOURS HOT LIQUIDS HOT'FOR lit; HOURS.
