Tho' Quebec bridge was tooted as a wonder when it wa� announced, and is the objeot of much curiosity now flbat it is being built. But it is only a culvert compared with the leth-I>ridge bridge. The bridge across the St. lAwrence is 3300 (�et long and is l&O feet above the water at high tide, whereas the bridge acrosa the Bellyis 5327 feet loi� and will be 300 feet above high water. This groat bridge will bring much fame to the city. Ontario papers are ptoting thait several townships in Orey and Bruce are half depopulaited by migratioa ito the Weat.

The HeraM does not know how to pronounce the nama of the second gentleman, but it looks as if there will be Hell-in-court for once anyway. 0�ir Excellent Schoola. The School Board meets to-night by special call of the chairman. The most important nmttai' that will probably come up for consideration is that of more accommodation. Home time ago the Board decided to build a new school on the site of the present Central school, but the financial stringency aeeiaed to put a tfuietus on the proposal. The greatly increased attendance at the opening j�~ - ----------- - . emuc work is concernwl. The most interesting event of the week, to at least three-fourths of thc city's population took pUcc on Mon day monting at nine o'clock when Principal Ifam'il'ton and his stafT entered upon another school year. J he attendance was very large f>)r ;.no opening day, there being 344 . i>ils on hand, as against 2-14 on the ticen-ingday last year. At the Wcsimi'i-star School there were 94 pupils, U20 in the Public School de|>artment of Central School and 30 in tha �igh School. The last figures are particularly gratifying to tlie Ijethhridge public. Two years and a half ago there were 13 pupils taking Hiigh School work. It is expected that by Soiitcntber 1st, the nunsbcr in this department will be at least forty. BETTER THAN COLLEGES. There has been a tendency anKing Lethbridgu people to send their sons and daughters to outside schools and [Wolloges to be educated. With a school w th the .standing and efficiency of the Lethbridge school, this is not necessary for academic (education. Records show that no pupil who was not successful in 'taking a department al examination from the local school has heen successful in passing an examination recognized by departmental authorities, in this or any other province. A representative of a boys college told the Herakl the other day that if ail the public and high schools did as good work as the Lethbridge schools, his college would go out of business as far as ocad - Tlic Culcary City fooll>all team defeated the champion Calidonians la.s-t Thursday by 1-0 in the Iwst game of the season. The time is getting short for the lacrosse team to get into shape to meL't Iho Northern champions. If tliey are to �be in shape there must be larger numbers out to practice and harder work must be taken. The final games w^ill mean eighty minutes of the hardest work the boys have done for many nnonths and no player will be able to go the limit who Is not in tip-top condition. Every caie must be taken and every oppoit unity taken to get into the best possible shape Regular, systematic hard work ntust be dons and every rule of athletics obeyed if n team steps on the field that will hold w^hat we nowi have, the Legislative Assembly Cup. Ev-erybodi" dovn to business. Have two full dozens on the ground every iniglvt. Practise! PKACTISE! HOW AND WHEN TO ROOT. I The men who sit in the press box at the ball games have ladled out advice unstintedly to twirlors, backstops, infieldors and long di.stance mon. They have praised antl censured, reproached and cheered. They have told the managers how ihc teams ought to be run, and have modestly given "his umps" pointers ]on tho fine spots of the game. They ! have even toW the weather man what he could do to help the cause along. There is only one who has any cause to complain of n�glect- the bleach -crite. though at liiilcs theiv was good i)lay ing.

O.' the loyal'ty of the fans there has been no question, but of their discretion at time's it has not becnpossible to use woMs of praise. One consummate piece of fooliijhnuss frtfiucntly indulgod in on the Calgary Weachers is piviag advice to thehoino players whan at bat. A little ro -flection would convince anyone who is a true lover of tho gome that this cannot help the l:)atter at nil, and is often disastrous to him. Kvcn more than when fielding g dilBcult ball he needs when facing the pitrfier to be absolutel.v conceirtrated on what he is doing. To have oven �-oll, meant words of encouragement handed out nt this time is not a wise procedure. j>Let the batter entirel.y alone when he is waiting for tho ball. If tho player deserves encourafgement give it to him before he faces the pitcher. .'\nd not only are batters rattled by the well-meaning but unsophistic-atefl fan. Fielding errors are often duo to .something shouted at third baseman or shortstop, or plaj-ers in other positiions, while in tho act of handling ditlicult grounders or high flyers. A very little is sufficient to cause a slight distraction, and a waver of n tenth of a second or the slightest glance away fromthe bal^ means always a fumble or a wild throw. Help out the bas3 runner all you like brother fan, and yell encouragement till everybody on the field is galvanized, but do it judic -iously or harm rather than good is bound to result.
