At a coming show "The Bong" will be given as a prelude to the play, and the audience will he asked to stand while the music lasts and sing to it if they so please. When the anthem marks finale it is is to be required of the whole house to receive it respectfully and not till the last notes die away proceed to wrap up and squeeze out. Ijethbridge is practically lacking in respect along this line. At every en- tertainment here, people pay little at- tention to the jSTational Anthem hut busy themselves getting on their wraps in order to get out of the hall, church or theatre ahead of others.

OUR POINT OF VIEW. j A man who is said to be crazy, shot nearly every dog in Lacombo. The man would be perfectly sane who would kill all the noisy curs in this city. Many citizens would be glad to subscribe to a testimonial to him. Calgary exults ovci' the wonderful record of 104 homestead entries at the land office there in one day. To read the newspapers one would imag- ine it was a remarkable- achievement but it is worth mentioning that in the Lethbridgo land office on the seventh of thia month one hundred and seven- ty-five entries wore marlc by a staff about half the size of the staff at Cal- gary. It is just another case of the metropolis of tho south beating out the county town of tho Calgary dis- trict. Lethbridge is a lucky place. Dur- ing thia year the firo losses in this city have reached very little over five thousand dollars. "Ct would be un- trise tc sit with arms folded and let insurance policies lapse.

Sow the seed in boxes the first 01 March and keep the box so the seed won't freeze. Keep the plants well watered night and morning and when the plant is about three or four niches high, plant them out in the field, three feet apart. Plant them about the 20th of May.
