Once more the Herald would urge the graduates living in the city to get their enrolment for the Univer -srty convocaition attendad to ot once. There is no use raising a howl after everj-thing is dona and Liothbridgo and district is left out of the Un-Jiyerta." Iversity Senate. Will not some grad- unite make this matter, his business and attend to it immediately^ Leth-bridge is already an important cdu -cational centre and will be greater in proportion to the attention paid to educational matters. Wake up, graduates. , The President of the Canadian Life Underwriters Association complains of the attitude of the press toA^'ards the life insurance companies during the recent iuvestigations, and speaks of >the law passed as "grandmotherly legislation." It is expected, how -ever, that the press and the governments will be able to hear up under the severe rebukes of the insurance companies' mouthpieoc if the agitat -ion created and passed result in the restriction of the companies to logi-timute investment of the people's money. The e.\-pupils of Goderich CoUeg -intc Institute presented H. I. Btrang H.A.. who had been principal of the school for thirty-five years with a purse of $1,000. That is better than ereoting momuments after a man's death. A case in point is the grant of $606 per annum given by the British Columbia government to Hiss Froser a descendant of Simon Fraser the famous explorer. After j-ears of poverty, the grant came just a few days before her death. O. W.'Kcrr, President of the O. W. Kerr Co. is in th-- city this week, and Mr. Kerr advises us that owing to their Inability to gut Umd in sufficient si7�d tracks in Southern Alberta, they c.spcct to clean the bnlnucc of their unsold lands and with^ as the large ranching concerns hold imincivsc tracts of wild land for ranching purposes, just so long it will rolaixl the develop -mont of the country.

This business of taking the lav. into one's own hands is a risky business anyway one goe.� at it. � It is astonishing the concern for the feelings of their parents tha.t young men assume as soon as they get into some trouble that brings disgrace upon them. A young fel -low disregaiids the admirations nnd feelings of a mother by getting into evil company by contracting bwd habits, or by committing some crime. Ho . 'is brought before the bar and receives punishment for his ntisdeeds. Hi} then remembers his mother and father and other friends and pleads that the matter ho hushed up. It is not the policy ot any reputable newspaper to damn any man's carreer by publishing .the details of his fall. The best way, however, for nny young iiitin to avoid having 'ilie i)aj)crs publish 'What will break his mother's lieart and wound his friends is to l.ive so as to. give the press no oc -casion to publish his disgrace. The time to consider the feelings of ones friends is before, not after, one commits the act that would bring disgrace. Cannot St one" In a hundred can even name him. This fact fairly represents his reputation and capacity. We is merely an Ottawa Franctunan. with the nice manners and graceful insincerity of his people. OIISOICINE HAT SC^HOOLS.

Shaw, formerly Secro -tary of the United States Treasury, now President of the Carneffie Trust Co., was asked what he thought of the financial and commercial skuat -ion. lieplying, he said: "Our farms produce more that f6,-SO0,O00,00U a year, and the prospect is good for an average crop. Our mines yield more that $1,500,-000,000 aod our forests more than 11,000,000,000 and noHher of these sourccfi of wealth has been exhausted The output of our factories, in other than food products, is approximately 112,000.000.000 and no fires have been extinguished. The railways earn more (than $2,000,000,000 and they aro all in successful operation. The pay rolls of our factories at�d railways aggregate approximately f8.-500.000,000, and the scale of wages kas not been ri^duced. In other words the n^al source's of the people'swealth hn\e not yet boon affected, nnd the jibiiity of imiustrial concerivs topny dividenrls is not measured by the market price of their stocks. Logical reasons for serious conditions are therefore wanting. Psychological reasons are never wanting. "If I judge correctly the pcoplowill have exactly what they oxiwct. If those who hove money in tl>e bonks withdraw it and look it up; if the banks refuse to grant accommodations, and if the consuming public decline to place orders, then we will very soon witness the effects.
