THE WEEKLY HERALD Published every Wednesday in eight oFTnore pages; contain! a. summary of the news of the week, local and district J year In advance.........51.50 3 months In advance.....i'Jc C months iu .advance Sheep-Raising for Profit THE) REPORT of the Sheep Com- mission will be found of much 'value ana" interest to those en- gaged iu the sheep industry. Copies of the same can be obtained on appli- cation to tbe publication branch of the" Department of Agriculture at Ot- tawa. Too commissioners have in the pro- cess of their investigations found that .the losses sustained in sheep, during the winter months, are largely due to the fact thai they are poorly housed and poorly fed. Tbere is also some criticism as to the way wool is hand- led from the shearing to the market1 ing. It is stated that in this regard no country handles its wool in a manner. Sheep-raising in England is dealt with in an exhaustive manner, and much information is thereby thrown out to those interested, as to breed- ing, care, and, feeding. The industry 'has there proved to be a profitable one and the JeBSons derived will be of much value to sheep-raisers in this country. The utility of sheep-keeping need not be, dwelt upon. There has been much said and written as to the ser- vices sheep perform, uot only as a direct profit-giving source, ,b'ut also from their uses to the soil for fertiliz- ing-and packing. The report should be in the hand of ail farmers who keep, or ate it tending to keep, sheep. Wellivtr's hat is iu the ring up in Red Deer. Our opposition friend Micheuer begins to ait "up and take noiice. It would-be too bad to deprive ambitious Red Deer of bejug the home of the illustrious lender of the Edmon- ton opposition septette, but it looks as if it were going to happen next election. While intent on putting the new city charter into 'force the council should not overlook the request of the Gait Hospital trustees to have that .institution taken over by the city. It would be a valuable addition to the city's assets, and could be managed along lines similar to the schools. The matter is too Important ;to be shoved into tbe background. Tho city limit, will illscuBscU o the special meeting of the cbuiicl tonlglit. Tim qucBtlou Is whether t> go to the limit or not. 'It's a questloi of limits nil round.

If one were to take ltlc rm'e gibes thrust at tho Slfton admlnistra lion by some ot the hide-bound Tor) papers, one would bo led lo believe that the province of Alberta shoulc be linanced and managed on wind. I1 takes money io run u province, even in Alberta, The sugar output of llle iwniin this year exceeded Umt of 1911 by over pounds. There are only three factories In the Dominion, and one of these is situated at Raymond, This is an industry which should every support, anil incidentally some scheme might be invented to use tbe by-products' of the plant. The 'tioard of Trade intends to shy clear of participating as an issue In another municipal campaign. They will raise the ante to get into tho game, and will leave it to the city council to find some other more sue cessful method of bringing industries to' the city. Then the ratepayers will have no kick that the board is spend- ing: sootl money foolishly. It appears to be the wise move just at the present time, and will leave the 1813 council no loop hole through which to avoid their pre-election promises regarding new industries. Tending to the High Cost of Living NE REASON fci tbe increases cost of living has been ered in -tltt States with regard to the'advanced price'of but- ter. It is caused by the''if ork of or- ganizations 'which have cornered the product. A'suit at present has b'eeii instituted.' under :the Sherman Act, against the" Elgin, III., board of trade, and the American Association of Manufacturers of Creamery Butter. They are charged with dictating, .the price of butter to producers. and holding immense-supplies m'-sttfrage for UBQ at enh a ac during; the time there they arc seeking to bring about. The Spokesman .Review in com- menting on the action has thp follow ing to sa When individuals acting separ- ately in the normal course of li.iglnogR hold their products in anticipation, of fteing able to ob- tain greater prices and larger profits, they act within their rights .under the competitive system. There la no combination in re- stramt of trade no mte ference uith the principles of industnil Individualism. But when individ- uals'or associations of them com- bine, to .restrain trade, when .they" practice interference with the rights of competitors and the course of commerce or industry theyJattempt. Ib set aside.ecpnomic law and up monopoij and the .law has to step in. to 'protect the rpublic against the consequences of the'lnterferencD with business and of the conspiracy, against, public welfare. It is however dpen "to argument whether -m tbe matter of necessities such as articles of food men indUid, separately'are iiolding back their great er'prices and larger profits The the ory of individual freedom in trade may be all very well, but in the mat- ter of the people's food, when the problem of the cost of living is becom- ing: so acute, theories do not count case. legitimate, and not arti- ficial, price? should be the rule at all times. Those Agricultural High Schools THE EDMONTON JOURNAL with its usual acerbity takes a fling at the Sifton Government for ilts announced intention of placing EChools to he erected at Vermilion, Olds and Clareshoim, and asks what .Medicine Hat, Lethhridge, Edmonton other places think about being overlooked. Of course tho Journal is against the erection of these schools. It is agalnat anything advocated by Premier Sifton or Sifton adminis- tration. If the Premier were to re- commend the Journal as the greatest advertising medium in ihe province, it 'would at once commence to damn itself through force of habit. In spite, however, oi the had taste displayed by tbe Edmonton opposition organ In endeavoring to stir up sec- tional faeling in the province in order to gain its' downfall of the Sifton announco- jjjent has been hailed with delight in parta of the province by everyone .with tbe cxroption of the disgruntled few. Tho plan is one of the most comprehensive undertaken by any pro- vince in Canada, and shows that the Alberta government considers agri-. c ul in re the most important question of the day. They have shown in the past how to help the farmers in ]j-ractical manner, and the agricultural schools arc simply carrying the plan further along. The Journal says that in Ontario only one agricultural college is need- rrt. That is situated at Guclph along with tlie experimental farm. It might bu pointed out, however, that lite agricultural schools at Vermilion, Claresholm and Olds are not to he colleges; they will be agricultural high schools. They will be in connec- tion ivith the demonstration farms at these points. They will be close to the fanners and they will be situated "where the far-mars' sons may attend them. They will be high schools for tbe farmer's boy where he can learn tho prcctical aide of farming, and will bear the same relation to the faTm as the present high schools do to the business world as found In the whole- sale or retail house, the teaching pro- fesslon, etc. The agricultural high school will he a preparatory course for the agricultural college, which will be erected within a few years when its necessity becomes greater. The plan for these agricultural high schools has been worked out by Dr. the Alberta University; Hon. Duncan Marshall, Minister of Agricul- ture; Hon. .1. R. Boyle, Minister of Education, and Premier Sifton, with a view to placing something practical within the reach of the farmers, and one of the professors of the Ontario Agricultural College on a visit to Al- herta'last summer expressed the opin- ion that the 'whole plan of agricultural education as outlined for this province was tile moat advanced and at. the same time the moat practical he had ever found. Lethbridge, Medicine Hat monton arc not disgruntled government's announcement. But the Journal mny possibly be suffering from u sour stomach. ml Ed- it the THE HERALD NEWS KID (Contributed) have fought and itatesmen debated, .Poets have written and preachers orated; Artists have painted and lingers have'sung Of the great and the mighty, the brave and the That's admit they should have their just But a word for KID" Who peddles the news.

The latest is .New Orleans, the largest which has yet done so. '1'he matter was sub- mitted to the vote of the people, and adopted almost unanimously.. It was not, n5Jn the case of the other Gulf port, a result of calamity, but of satis, faction in what the new system had' done to give new life to other cities. Atlantic City adopted the same system to deliver itself from as corrupt con- ditions as ever prevailed in Montreal. New Orleans resembles .Montreal in being largely French. Till a few years ago it excelled Montreal in popula- tion, but is now considerably behind having about three hundred thousand people. mation does in" an hour what nature do; it reduces the human clay to tluat at once.

Cremation Cheap Burial (Brockville Times) Cremation is not a luxury for the rich; it is, on the contrary, convenience for the poor. For example, the charge by the Crematorium, Montreal, of which Sir Kdward Clpuston was .vice-president, for cremation is only for an adult, )5 for a child, and no charge whatever If the survivors of the deceased are too poor to afford the customary charge. While it is hard to make a detailed comparison between tho cost of. cre- matiwi and ordinary earth interment, It may be stateil that cremation1 is certainly cheaper than any of burial in Montreal, where the cheapest child's grave is includ- ing digging the grave, and the cheap- est adult's is 530. There is not a solitary argu- ment in favor of the usual earth burial when compared with cremation. Earth burial Is repulsive, unsanitary and ex- pensive. Cremation is unoffeilfllve, sanitary and cheap. The sole objec- tion' to il Is ono of sentiment."
