WESTERN CANADA COLLEGE The (Calgary Albcrlan.) friends of the Western Can- ada College in the west, and they are many, -will have -rejoiced to learn of the splendid .success scored by its studt-nts at the recent McGill uni- versity preliminary matriculation ex- aminations. Fuller particulars have recently come to hand from the prin- cipal, MacRae. From this we learn that the first among the col- lege boys, A. W. Geddes of Calgary, was seventh among 603 candidates, with a percentage of 83.5; that the second lad, G. H. Holmes, was 18th; tjjat B. McDonald of Edmonton, and S. Jackson of Wetaskiwiu, were each 55th. The majority of the candidate.? from the college -made over GO per cent., in" fact eleven of the sixteen did so. Out of 22 sent up 16 passed. The.past yea-r was in many ways the very best the college has had. There were 100 enrolled and as results have thcv 'jiVsrs the bsst ztuilsntH the college has ever had since it be- gan its work in Calgary. At present the carp'.-ntors are busy making a large addition to the resi- dence building. When this work is finished the residence accommodation will have been more than doubled, so that for the coming year the col- lege will bo able to receive 25 boys in residence. The academic building is capable of holding 150 in its class rooms. The gymnasium build- ing promises to be in better shape than ever. While lie was away, Dr. Mr.cRae saw some excellent work in model- ling, wood carving, new methods in drawing, etc. Ft is proposed to add those to the curriculum of the col- lege for the coming year. Now that Alberta University is es- tablished, the Western Canada Col- will prepare students for it, as for any of the others in Canada in- cluding the Royal Military College. It should be bi-tter known that there is in Calgary this institution that in its jiimtv form it receives' boys from of agi-; in its higher forms, boys are carefully train- ed with a view to find tlu-ir bent or inclination; that if they incline to business, they are passtd on fitted to tin- commercial form of the colh-pr. which js under thi> cure, of wcp. rts in shorthand, etc.; ami that they are prepared for university matricula- tion. last week and were put up on Fri- day morning. They make improvement in the appearance of the hull. In the centre of the outer curtain is a large painting of Crow's Nest Mountain, six feet by twelvel This is surrounded' by advertising matter which covers the entire bor- jUer, the effect of which is very artis- tic. The second curtain which is al- Iruost six feet back from the outer one contains a street scene of an ancient Roman city and is a work of art. The buck .curtain is stationary, and contains a painting of a large gar- den-scene. It has the effect of giving distance to the stage and in size is fourteen by twenty-eight feet. The work on those curtains cannot be surpassed anywhere in Canada and the appearance of the stage is indeed very complete. Mr. Manly ordered the curtains through an agency in Chicago. They are a credit to Cole- man and the purchaser is to be con- gratulated. Ur. .J. Westwootl returned Sunday night from a two weeks' holiday trip to Grand Forks and other points in British Columbia. >ast week has been visiting Miss Ouimette. returned to her home at Red Deer today. Somerton of the photo man, has pitched his tent on the va- Canadian South African Voterane The majority of South African vol. untw.'s from the Western Prairie pro. vhtci'8 have been living in that coun- ty for many years incluuiiig those spent here before enlisting for the South African War. They have seen a large share of the rapid and wonder, tul growth and progress of the coun. try west of the' Great Lakes and they have come to -realize that this is the last great world's garden, men who love the opin and can by a few months of out door life secure them, rtflvt-s a lifelong heritage. To the Canadian South African Vel- tin: Volunteer Bounty Act, 1908, makes this opportunity more than .loubly a valuable one. It is safe that in a very few years, com- paratively speaking, there will prac- tically be noil'.- of this valuable land eft for grants or free. homesteads. One must bear in mind that millions md millions of dollars are now ng .spent in putting railroads over and into evi ry nook and corner of this enormous territory. The ciipitull- sts and investors who are putting .hese vast of money into the work realize the future of the great prairies and the enormous wealth must follow m a few It is, as they know, the last G-reat Wist, the only tmct of fertile lands in the world today that is left where fr- a homes may Ix1 secured by :hc men who can and go in and win it. Under the Bounty Act a veteran's ordinary homestead privileges are Tiot with. If he does not ?xercise these lights as a British subject, somebody else will. It is the uxperiencf; of homesteaders in the West in the past and at the pres_ snt time that if his land is not worth from to per acre after he" has completed hiri duties and secured his patent, it is b. cause he has shown remarkably poor judgment in select- ing his land. A simple calculation show what this means to a vet_j 3ran or his substitute, who has a concession of 320 acres in addition to his homestead right.

On this additional homestead or pre- emption the settler has to perform his duties and he pays- the- Government a very low price of an acre. On the Veteran's Grant of 320 acres he hari only to do duties equivalent to the IGO ncn.-s ordinary homestead Requirements. Therefore as a basis of value for the mere soiling purposes, his rights to the additional 320 acres is worth more than the nominal Gov- ernment price of pre-emption, an aero or in all. Rut when it is considered that with six months' residcnc each of three years and cul- tivation, all of his holdings becomes worth from to or per aero, one cnn readily realize that the selling value of the Veteran Grant of 320 acres is actually worth in cash at the pn.'scni time from to an ,tco.
