Although the greatest activ- lished in territory remote from rail- ways at present. A notable example of this was the establishment of a school at Prairie River, west of Lesser Slave Lake, about three hun- dred miles northwest of Edmonton. Records of Expansion. The number of school districts m existence at the end of 1907 was at the end of 1908, 1070, an increase of The total number of-depart- ments increased from 9-13 to 1139 and total number of teachers had ui- j creased from 729 in 1905 to 92-1 in 1906 i; 1210 in and 1468 in 190s. This great increase is ascribed lo tae rural districts and to the rapid growth of the eitv and town schools. A comparative study of the rural The report, however, gives a amount of interesting details in re- gard to the expansion of school system of the province up to the'end of last year, and .the general condi- tion of the schools at that time. The deputy minister of. education -draws attention to the 'fact that during the year no less "than an average of four- teen new school districts per month The: new Presbyterian church at: Five thousand business men in New i maintained throughout the year- port in regard to the number of schools, teachers, etc., donotjand urban-school population during at all represent present conditions. the past {ew as given in large Open Every Night till 9 p.m. Proprietor.

From the figures for for the rear 190S it would appear that a reaction is taking place where- by the majority in favor of urban schools .was reduced to 455. The meaning to be tak-eh from these fig- ures is that during the year, whil-e there has been a great expansion in city schools, that of the country schools has been still greater.

Nearly all of the inspectors drew attention to the fact that the teach- ing of the very important subjects of writing and composition is very far from satisfactory. In the case of 'the former it is due largely to the unset-tl-ed system of penmanstiip. an d the same service w ill be given R at S ICE-CREAM AND CONFECTIONERY PARLORS Alberta Block and next Bank of Commerce The tendency towards increase of some teaching vertical and others the teachers' salaries is also strongly in sloping system, and still others not evidence in the. report.

The School Buildings In his report to the minister of education, Mr. Robert su- pervisor of foreign schools, says that the thirteen new school houses erect- ed during the year were heat, roomy, well-lighted frame structures. There were ten teachers' shacks built, each j at a cost of from S125 to S200. They are usually furnished by the district with a cook stove and a bed. Mr. Fletcher concludes his report as fol- lows "An outlook into the future is. oni the whole, hopeful. Better provision is being made for the comfort of the j i and the people are manifest- j i keener appreciation of the ser- vices of good teachers." In the appendices of the report are copies of the examination papers for teachers' non-professional and profes- sional certificates, for which it is evident that the standard of scholar- ship for teachers' certificates in. Al- berta is as high as that in any prov- ince in Canada. The report of the department for 1909 will show a much greater expan- sion than that of 1908.
