Compulsory Attendance Enforced "We always have had /tf. compul-eory attendance law in 'Saskatchewan, but when the enforcement of it was left to local authorities the result was very unsatisfactory in the rural districts. We enacted a new law in March, 1917, which came into force ou May 1, 1017. "Wie created the department of .^education to enforce It, and a staff of twenty persons Is engaged In this work. In 1917 we bettered our school attendance by about eight per cent, over the previous yeair and brought our average to within four or five .per cent, of Ontario's, We had over 1,000 prosecutions in the eight months in which the law was operative-last year. In 1917 the enrollment was 10,000 higher thun in 191G. ' "Our critics say that the foreigu-ere ot the province have their pri-vaie schools.

I 'A CAMBON'S LONG TERM He Is Completing Twenty Years as French Ambassador to England ite schools, which wo are trying to eliminate, there 'are not more than sixteen � or seventeen private schools ip Saskatchewan. This time last year there were dozens of German-Lutheran schools; today there are only six. Wte forced a number of them to close by reason of the School Attendance Act. In addition to these there are eleven Catholic private schools, which are efficient schools^ "I have spent weeks visiting over 100'foreign schopls so as'to get a first-hand acquaintance with them, an.^ I may claini, fairly' that we are solving our probjems in a manner worthy . ot a gr^iat British-Canadian province,". ' Only one  diplomat has surpassed the record of M. .Paul Cambon iii completing 20 years' service as ambassador in Loiij^on. Musurus Pasha, who was a Cretan, went to London in 1851 as minister plenipotentiary for Turkcry. and received the rank of ani-liassador in IS.jG, and retained his post until 1881. The most grievous time of his career occurred lu 1867, when Sultan Abdul Aziz visited England and was ottered the Order ot the Star ot India. As be was alreaily a G.C;B, the Sultan deemed this offer an insult, and Musurus had hard work .to prevent bis master leaving the country in dudgeon. Eventually Queen Victoria invested him with the Garter. The � ceremony took place oft Osborne, on the quarter deck of the royal yacht, in the midst of a raging storm and with curtailed oaths, for, as Musurus pointed out, they: could, not expect the Sultan to swear tha.t he would "pursue-the infidel to death." The following night there was a reception at the Iftdla Office in honor of the Sultan. As Mnie. Musurus, the ambassador's wife, was ^oing in to supper she was seized with a heart attack and dropped dead. Aliout 19,800 soldiers" in 'United States camps died of influenza, more than halt as many as the Germans killed abroad. Plague, pestilence and famine are stjU the worst euemlas of the human race after all. i2 'aj DELANY'S SPECIALS FOR SATURDAY BEEF CUTS AT 15c, 18c and 22c PORK CUTS AT ........ .25c, 28c and^30c VEALCUTSAT .. 15c, 18c, 20c and 25c Also a full line of Turkeys, Ducks, Geese, Chickens , ., and Fowl,,.
