Good News for the Kiddies HE HERALD is glad to see that I the school board recognizes Us duty to the school population of the city in providing: free rinks in suitable locations. It is also pleased that the city lathers have again supported this very commendable movement by granting free water for the rinks, and placing ihe work of flooding them in charge of the; fire UeBjVtment. j H is a step in the''right direction.! Last year one rink was much against the wishes of certain j members of the school hoard. This winter those very, persons were the first to make the suggestion that the plan followed out this winter, and they went even further and suggested two instead 01' one. Now North Lethbridge children have a free rink as well as those on Hie south. It is strictly along the lines of modern educational de- velop-the body as 'well as the. mind. Lethbriilge school children should be glad they are living'in such an en- lightened age. Shall the City Limits -be Extended 0 FAR 'in the" election campaign the Herald has heard only one candidate express himself on the matter of extension of the city limits. This should not be so. The assessment of the city of Leth- b-ridge in the year 1913 is going to be one of the big items of popular dis- o.nssimi, and the extension of the city limits has a direct bearing on the ij lies t ion. The council will have the matter to deal with very soon after the new year. The limits will have to be fixed hi the new' city charter. K'the rate- payers .can give the council any idea of their wishes in ihe; matter during the campaign they should do so. Then the council will be able io -deal in- telligently with the matter. There are many matters to consider in connection with the (juestiuu. Can the city afford to my itself open to the demands 'of ratepayers for im- provements in far away sections of the city? That is one question. Does U need, the-space? That IE another. There arc many more'which will have to be considered before a decision is reached: DisctiSs it now. Firm In Its JT HAS BEEN CHARGED against all houses of legislature that much of the people's time is wasted in talkinc. This may be said io he not. altogether unmerited. In the category be included the discussion caused in the House at Ottawa by the intimation erf the Minister of Finance that the Liberal party was not a unit- ed body on tho trade question, and v.-as afraid to resurrect the co-ryse of reciprocity, as it was put. say in that the replies called fnr served to show that, so far as the representative Liberal party Is con- cerned, it has not moved one jot from its original attitude- with -regard to the question of freer and larger markets. This expression of faith is some Bmall atonement for the waste of pub- lic lime, in that it will serve the pur- pose, should it be at all necessary, of removing any doubts, from the minds of those who might be, inclined to take -the remarks of the Minister of Finance- seriously.

The replies he received should be sufficient to show that, with regard to the important trade ques- tion, the Liberal party is as it always was. .Ii Is unshaken in its convictions and remains a solid phalanx under Ua venerable leader. are a united party on this side of the House said Sir Wilfrid Lander, when Mr. Fowler put the question to him, and the cheers from his sup- porters were sufficiently convincing. The farmers of the west need no occasion to be despondent over the ultimate fate of a measure which means so much to them. The cause must eventually so long as its supporters remain faithful to it. It' ihere were any fears as to this they have by now vanished into thin air. The demand for larger and freer markets must continue and gain in volume. Almost daily some new ex- perience comes forward to show its necessity. The men who originated ihe policy see in these grounds for believing more strongly in its utility, and it is only the dreamer who can imagine that they will ever iie.sert the position they have taken.

The Facts and n" Question (Winnipeg Free Press) There is one question which forces itself upon public attention in connec- tion 'with the affidavits which Robert Rogers, with such .very tardy legerde- main, produced from his sleeve the other day in the .House at .Ottawa. Why in the world if those affidavits are to be regarded seriously, was1 not Cf-ipt. W. B. Sift on. proceeded against? This is the question that clamors to be answered. Who Pays the Duty? (Paisley Advocate) The Kincardine Review'makes'the following: comment an cut A. Cor- mack's shipment of cattle to the Unit- ed States: Note that 'Andy paid- the duty on his cattle when he took them to New York. And remember that he is a man who believes thar, he has to pay duty every lime he brings stuff over from the U. S. to Canada: He belongs to a party that has over subscribed to the doctrine that the consumer paid the duly. The customs man yets Andy coining and going. The Review gives the facts a twist to make them ntiree with his political views and disagree with M r. Cor- mack's' creed. It is true that Andy paid duty at the U. S. border, hut when he got to New York with his cattle he col- lected from the buyer there the mar- ket value of the cattle at Toronto, plus the duty, and plus more which went Iv all the time.

LIMB FRACTURES IN APES From time io time a hunter hriuss in a bird or a mamma! thnt shows distinct evidence of some bone having been broken and then having knit to- gether again. The danger or fractur- ing parts of Ihe skeleton varies a great deal v.-ith different species of animals, depending partly upon the character of the bones and partly up- on the habits of Ihe aiiimals. It is impossible io form an estimate of what this danger is from a mer observation of the habits of a species. But Dr. W. I.. II. Duckworth, of the University of Cambridge, has marie a special study of the skeletons of many apes and finds from these that the orang-utan is the most liable to have brokc-n bones. He draws this conclu- sion from the frequency with which repaired fractures are found in the specimens in museums of Kngland. Germany and France. Alter the orang ntan comes the adult male gorilla, which is especially liable to have a cracked skull. The other anth- ropoid apes seldom have broken bones The marks of repaired fractures are very rare in the skeletons of savages or of primitive human beings. The breaks of 'which evidence' found 'on the museum skeletons very seldom show signs of complications, although there is frequently evidence that there was a limitation of move- ments. The part most frequently broken is the forearm, especially the lb. Truck, F.O.B. Brantford lb. Truck, F.O.B. Brantford Guaranteed to (Jive satisfaction LOCAL DEALE!
