Christmas Presents J' T of Christmas gifts is eugagiug th attention of many. It is one those things, which has passed int an unwritten' law. The custom ahoul survive, but with it there IE a cerbii amount of danger, in prevai ing will which the season apjiro prlately inspires, is apt to lead njany persona into extravagance in the na ture of their purchases. This should be carefully guarded against, especially among those who are the least able to afford-it. After all it is not the value of the gift which ihould be reckoned, "but the kind feeling .which prompted it. Christmas is an expensive time, and the toll of providing Christmas gifts helps to make it more costly. Therefore, 'it would be of much material benefit, if it is gener- ally recognized' that the value .of a gift is a secondary .quality, and the hraiice' should .be prized! .To.giv.e according to one's means is the golden rule whicb. should be applied by. all making gifts. .This will save a' great deal of uneasiness later on, when the' pinch caused extravagance comes to be felt. Again a gift 'which is of use. to recipient; gains thereby a value, and his means a little thoughtfulness-on he part of tha buyer. So when using neaus for showing our goodwill, a ttle discrimination and carefulness re. necessary. It -would be a matter to be deplored the spirit of Christmas with the meaning it conveys to us at present, rillowed to depart.

He drew attention to the raising of livestock from an insurance point of view, in that if the wheat crop should be unfit for sale it can, with other coarse grains and roots, be used for feeding purposes. This is a common sense statement which the enterprising fanner has no doubt con- sidered, but, none the less, in many cases he has been slow to act. However, the provisions made in the new Bank Act, when they become effective, 'will be a considerable boon to farmers all round, and will afford the necessary stimulus to an Industry which all exports and authorities claim is the wisest and safest agricultural policy. Alberta fanners have the knowledge that the world's demand for cattle is increasing, and, as the president of the Bank put it, they should be able not only to supply Own needs but. also to export on a large scale. The following from the Toronto Sun is a tribute to the quality of Alberta cat- tle, and once cattle-raising IE securely established, tho Alberta farmers will be able to trade on Ihe distinguishing quality of their stock: "It has been contended by the Oalt Reporter and some other Ill- informed papers that the reason cattle .prices are lower in Canada thar. they are in the United Slates is because Canadian cattle are In- ferior to American, "The-live stock review given in -this, week's markets ought to fin- ally banish that idea. In this re- view the fact is 'stated that range cattle from Alberta sold In Chi- cago Up to last week, while the offerings from Ontario 'farms were selling in Toronto at .the same time for ?C.30. After paying duty .at the rate of per bent, these Alberta'ranchers .netted cents more than was being realized for best On- tario cattle In Toronto where 1 there -was no duty to pay. If fur- ther proof is required of the statement that the difference, in prices'in-the'two markets is not due to inferiority in the quality of. Canadian offerings it is found in'the fact that a bunch of belters in the range cattle sold in Chicago from Alberta last week fetched the highest' price on record for range heifers, from any source, In that market." It is true that the agriculturists of the.ivest .will be handicapped for a 'me through the barriers to larger ind better markets preserved by the rejection of the reciprocity pact. But here Is no reason to be'despondent on this account. The final word with regard to the measure has not yet been spoken.
