District News MILK RIVER ITEMS Milk River, Dec. foundation is being laid for the new Milk River school house. The building will only be lor the present as the dimensions are not great enough to accommodate the patronage by another year, we are sure, while the size is only 24 x 30. it will bo built in a first class manner and finished up comfortably for children. F. A. Leflingwell has the contract, and specifications call for its completion by Jan. 1st, 1910. and Mr. Leifingwell assures us he will have it ready for occupancy by that time. The trustees will have an up- to-date teacher and the school will begin at once after the completion. There is no end to the demand for Milk River lands. Those who cannot get homesteads seem determined to locate in our midst, and quite a lit- tle real estate is changing hands. Karry Quinn, our live dealer, can be seen almost every day with different ones who are coming in for the pur- pose of locating, driving them in the different directions showing and sell- ing good farms at ridiculously low figures. __ A telegram from Lethbridge was received at Milk River on the morn- ing of the 13th inst, which read thus: "I arrived safely last night.

Box 304 Fernie, B. C. Extension Lecture Professor Alexander of the Alberta University gave the opening lecture last night of the extension lecture course to be given -throughout the winter. The speaker and his subject, Cato the Elder, an Old Roman Squire, were introduced by Dr. Galbraith! The speaker stated that the aim oi the Alberta University was to be "a university at work" not only for its stu'dcnts but for the whole pro- vince. His subject although ancient his- tory he considered full of interest that modern history did not possess. It was generally considered dreary outlook across a measow full of gray ashen blossoms springing from a field of bloo-d." But that was not so. Ancient history was more a thing of men-personalities ra- ther than events. In these lectures he intciKKd to study Roman history through Roman character. lie commenced by emphasizing the features of the administration .and the character of that English squire as an instance in our own history, a parallel to the life and work of Cato. the Squire of Tusculum. lie explained the cognomen 'Cato' meant shrtwd and was applied to this man on account of that characteris- tic in his makeup. In appearance he was described, by a contemporary as "Red haired, grey eyed, savage tusk- ed, For this can find co welcome not even in hell." War was his chief exercise in youth. He had commenced his first campaign in 217 B.C. and it is remarked of him that his wounds were all in front, lie engaged in war although his life at all tirr.cs was hard. Un- like the English squire the table and the bottle were not indulged in by Cato. The Roman had never sound- I ed the depths of degradation 10 the' j extent of 18th century England. j Cato constituted into a kind of moral reform league. Immor ality to him as to many others was constituted mainly by having views other than his own. We, found even back in that early day the vendetta spirit or the undying feud spirit of the Kentucky mountaineer. He 'told a great many amusing and j interesting episodes of Cato's censor-1 ial career and .some of his cutting) and humorous sayings that are pre-j served. Speaking of a young man who had drunk up an estate by the seaside he had remarked, "This man hns succeeded in drinking of what the sea could not swallow." His relations in his family were much different than his relations with outsiders although he was said to have expressed the remark that FHE CANADIAN BANK OF COMMERCE BEAD OFFICE, TOKONTO t.
