Get rid of the weeds and make Leth-bridge a city -beautiful. Southern Alberta homesteads are so valued -that even a woman will com- mit perjury to get one. The. St. Louis man who carried around a store in his stomach must have been afraid of the tax collector. should put on its "best average man does not know which to do first. The forecasters who eaid that a comet year was a queer one as a rule were -better prophets than the average weather prophet. bib and tucker" next week. when Laurier is here Three men at Trail, B. C., were lined for fighting. That's near- ly as expensive as Reno. Side ember 4th A Methodist church discipline with- out a footnote will leave the elnirch no one to discipline. Alberta may yet find a market Kg horseflesh in France, just as its oeef goes to Britian for consumption by the judges of good meat thefre. Southern Alberta has no need to be alarmed when in an unusually dry year it raises enough wheat to the local -demand.

Only NOTHING IN THE REPORT if, as Duncan Campbell 'Scott alleg- es, 55 Indians were arrested for drunk- enness during the Lethbridge fair, there must toe a number of -white men in that -city who are not in the least afraid to sell liquor to the redskins. TJiis is a reflection on the Lethbridge police and Mr. Scott's charges merit than a casual Calgary News. If what Mr. Scott stated in Calgary correct, it certainly would foe a reflection on the Lethbridge police. However, it is not true and therefore the Lethbridge. police are not open to criticism, The police of this -city keep a vigi- lant eye on the Indians and other visitors at the fair and considering che immense crowds in attendance the city -was as orderly as a local option town 4s supposed to be. The'j Indians, who did break the law, and they were limited to less than half a dozen, were punished and made to realize that the offence was serious. Lethbridge police make the Indians keep the law, not only at fair time ibut at all times they visit the city. They also make every effort to punish t2ie parties who sell liquor to the red men, and usuallv succeed. jfor a singular phase. This country, he said, would not sink into chaos if it became a republic, but he (believes that without the Crown the Empire would sink into chaos. The Montreal Herald man, travel- ling with Sir Wilfrid Laurier, is on 2 of the -best informed men on politics and public men. As much has been published lately to indicate that Ron. Frank Oliver is losing his grip on Ed- monton, what the Herald reporter has to say of 'the Edmonton meeting is Interesting and proves that the Minister of the Interior, is still strong in the city he has lived in for so long. He says: "New interest has -been lent to the tour by the presence of Premier Sifton and the Hon. Frank Oliver, whooe strong personalities aie making a marke-i impression on the Mr. Oliver's stiff-backed .ntegrity plainly commands the gen- eral confidence here." Remembered His Manners Kven the brightest boy in the class can be scared into stupidity. 'Answers' relates what one such replied to his examiner. "You boy over in the cried the man behind the desk.

[Finally .he discharged the Swede, but he was too.good na tured to refuse folm a letter of recom mendation. Being somewhat of a di plomatist, the Celt couched the letter in the following terms: "This man 'has worked for me for one week.

TORY TRIBUTES TO MINISTE-R OF LABOR A section of the Conservative press .led by the Toronto Mail and Empire, whose aim is ever directed towards .attacks on members of the Liberal -government, endeavored to belittl-e HOE. Mackenzie King's efforts cowards I'ae settlement of recent Grand Trunk strike, However, there were Conservative papers honest enough and fair enough to give Mr. King the credit that lie entitled to. The Ottawa Citizen says: Hon. Mr. Mackenzie King's course in connec- tion with the settlement of -this, the most important labor difficulty since ce took office, has been judicious and cacttul. He is 'all -the more deserving of credit in that he had no precedents to guidje him, and some doubt seemed to exist as to the function of a Min- ister of Labor in the face of a crisis that threatened a serious dislocation o? 'business and much loss to -the pub- lic, as well as to the corporation in- volv'ed and its employees. d-rilMifrk was as follows: Worthy of comment attitude of Hon. Mackenzie iiing, Minister of Labor. Stepping in. wftere the average political angel would have feared to tread, this pub- lic servant showed ihimself to be a -true servant of the public, and while today gives credit to Sir Fred 3otden for the actual settlement of th-e strike, those who nave followed the course of events will be excused if they pass over the Minister of Mil- ma, and place .the wreath of cojnniexx- who is making hosts of friends -wherever he goes by dint of equal reliance on good humor and sood sense, jcie nearly always speaks last just after Sir Wilfrid and it is always amusing to watch the- audience, which satisfied and ready to go home, gradually settles down and unthinkingly -decides to stay. Mr. Graham loves to give rein to his na- tural propensity -for humor. At the most unexpected moment when he is talking in the most serious vein, he is apt to slip in a comment that just falls short of the ludicrous the point being, as often as not directed against himself. But there is an old saying that a man talks what he is, and'as "Mr. Graham as at base a serious mind- ed public man, really and Intensely about the problems of Can- adian natural development he is never misunderstood, never written down as a mere entertainer. He has a great- asset dn a powerful, throaty voice of great carrying power. One reason everybody stays to hear him is that everybody can near him. At Saint Albert the meeting was held down in a valley, the hills rising from all sides. The motor -car on which I rode there had slipped a tire just as we got -to Bishop Legal's college, which is on a hill top a good quarter of a mile from the meeting place.

When I remark- ed it he said he didn't tfrtp> he .was .speaking very loud. He wasn't, but the voice has .the carrying power and the distinct enunciation helps. The West is full of Ontario people and every town of any size there are scores of them who know some intimate- ly, more through his visits to all parts of the province since he entered poli- tics. As I have tried to make clear an other mesages Mr. Graham lias grown stature ever since he began this tour. He" does all things easily, speaks, more and more as with au- thority, but never for a moment, even in his most formal appearences, loses that engaging air of being engaged in personal, deferential conversation with each of those in whose presence he is. As to matter, he has been kept rather close to the grinding stone of trans7 portation, but from that centre has taken a wide range. He preaches con- sistently the mutual interest of East and West and ly to J E. Kellle, Western Plumbing CONCRETE execut ed for cement aidewalfca, and other concrete work.
