Calgary is SMHeJ-ing a very grave recurrence of the intluenisa epidemic, causing many deaths daily. In this reapect Lethbrldgo is much better off fortunately, and though there Is more than tho usual amount of illness In tho city, due no doubt to influenza, the latest attacks at tho malady seem to be mild, reducing mortality to a minimum. . The Herald wishes, however, iu spite of this, to wara its readers to take all precautions ngainst the epidemic. What lias happened in Calgary may-easily happen here, but it will not be so.likely to li^ppen if proper care is taken. 'Crowds should be avoided, and medical attention sliouid be secured on the first signs'of the disease. If we do this we should be able to avoid the disruption of schools and business which would attend the putting on of a ban such as that-established In the first outbreak.

In fact, the dlsipatch stated that Alberta had produced practically twq-thirds _of the coal mined in Canada during the first nine.months of the year. ^ This Is a wonderful record fo^ the youngest province, but it is no more wonderful than we might expect. Our coal deposits are practically unlimited, and the only need. In order, to have these" ifesources developed, was to find the market. I-'^Though^^'forGe -mifoumstances, which.kept ont TJ. S. coal, no doubt was the greatest contributing factor in, proVjd&ig'the market which en-al^Ied Alberta to'jump into the lead in coal, prbductfon this year, the Heraid feels It has a right to some of the credit-ifor the splendid showing of,i Ainierta'e coal Industry. All throughout last -winter when XJ. S. (fuel troubles-were giving the Canadian fuel controller .^nd the people of Mani-toha something to worry about, the jHerald'carrled on a campaign for "Al-i-]barU.v�0�a foTfiWestem Canada," ' "".^^^^ed^diil-waking the eastern iprjssiiip^-ftiiifact,that Alberta could snHPly-;aIl.tJtfi,p:('Scfai'Be' Vhibi' gceatiy 'favwr Pennsyl--vania^vsy wfeeld"3�, antt'^u ed .,1'to help tli^ to'sen and ^.unt?y^No?^^ ie.,aimouncei tlia't he has disposed d�^ tile paper to Mr. Chaa.

Most 'of the nations are licking (heir wounds, some with gladness in their hearts, some with bitternoGS, and ra&ny with deep anxieties about tho iraiAediate future. A-ny-one who Inquires �nfhat the war has contributed to Chrlptianlze the world Is likely to be thought not quite In order, because political and economic-needs press so urgdhtly for the moment. There is food to be distributed, states to be reshaped, peoples to^ave Sovernmont provided.for them or to be helped to provide" it-for-themselves, armies to be brought home.and demob-, ilizeri. and the men who were, taken from make. them,.put baol? where tSjey belong. '� i ^ All this reconstruction means a.lot of work, and the Effort of the moment is to set It .started, but still the funda-meutal question is �^vhat the war has doue to Christianize the world. If it has done much, we will think of It as a success. If it has doue little, it is a failure. In either casfe If"will take time to show what has happened. If you ask who was 'the greatest mind that humanity has produced, most people here^oiiuls,-. after considering wheiher,*it was Napioleoa �r Ca,osnr or Lineofn of someone, else, win assent It you snggosttto them that it was Christ. For-us.ot SJuropean descent, lit least, Christ Is the great mind that Is the ba'aJs of the aivilization that we live In andrT)ractIstf loMmjirove. The lite and tesichlngs of Christ conferred new importance on the Indivl-. dual, and in that--way. they are the foundatl'on of modern demo'craoy. Christ saw In e-v'ery niitl'the expectation, or at least the possibility, of Im-" mortality, apd a chance to attain to fitness for i't. TcTChrlst no one was ftnliiiportant. Rich �^op poor, slave or free, every man had in him the gei'in of immortality and the making of a salDt, if only the spirit, of him; .could be caught and Inspired. What wisdom, -what manner of conduct,, -what aspirations would be the fruit of:;such inspiration, Christ Bhowed>'byHt own life. Now wars, of course, do not ^haka people Christlike by wholesale; "^They do diffuse veiT widely,^.a cei;tq^ soij of consecration. They^do '�withdraw people from selfish concentration on their -"own pf osperttr- an'd-corhloTt aid' make them spend themselves and all, they have for a common. .Object. This war we have iad- part In has done that to a wonderful degree. It has drawn together antagonistic persons and peoples, and,set. them to work in a comrnou cause.; Jt;has 'gone wonder-'fully far to abolish selfishness for the time being, and thatlhas been a Chris-flan result. � - J 1^ ,But what WO may r-^asona'Bly expect of -wars is not so i h the immediate Christianizatlon oC Individuals, as the bringing of world politics Into better accord with the Great Mind, so that the kind may haye a better chance to enjoy the natural fruits of -goodness, and the greedy may be. hindered from harrying thsiiu ,"When'.a- Tirar has increased and ^xtonded the authority of the Golden Rule, the war la a success. , And it is for that i^hat^.the Allies and the Americans havebeen fighting.
