Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - December 25, 1907, Lethbridge, Alberta PRINTING CO., LTD. W. A. Buchanan, M�nRglng Director and Editor. SUBSCRIPTION: Va Advance - $1.50 n year Q.therwiso  $2.00 a yoar ADVERTISING. I?ar Month - $1.00 Per Inch CANADA AT THE iINTERNATIONAL. sary to dtvlde. tho day into nlno leaching periods. In other words thoro nr0 'twenty seven short lessons n, day to tench forty-four to fifty HUbJ rapid Increase of the high school attendance nnd tin?! teaching start' should he ineiMnsvd accordingly. Tiu> Herald believes that tho people of I.etlitiridgv are proud of their schools and want them to be kept at t !>d. while more money the carrying for the third time ntul;spent for satisfactory iv.suIts is mo-jiermanently the stock-judging tro-ln.-y saved. ])liy by the boys of the Ontario Agri- j -#- cultural College. The success in both j A B|G EUILDt NG YEAR, these, departments of practice ond what might be called theory, or, education, in n matter the significance of which should not be lost sight of, as they are mutually dependant and complementary phases of agricultural work nnd progress. Tt is a gratification to know that Canada has among her stockmen the best exponents of the (cedar's art on the continent and it is no less n satisfaction to know that the higher institutions for the .vareh and spread of agricultural lore and ideas are doing their work adequately and well. Time was when the kid glove farmer^ e.f iiie colleges afforded a convenient object of ridicule among people both within and without the Bctual business of agriculture. , It is a frequent reproach to tin; agricultural college c mrse that it unfits the farm boy for farm work that the work or ideas gained at the college are not an impulsion to later useful and progressive practice. \.l-mittiug that is true in some instance*, the work of those who do n .:. o back to the land is not by any means lost. One ot the great ben--fits of our colleges has been its roi ine of the garden attached. It was not much of a house, but It saved rent. Tho stivet cars passed near tho house, but for several months I walked fact upon tho new council no Mint its members will take notion to htivo n part of the square put apnrt for that purpose.

Israel Tnrte did more to entrench the Liberal party in Quebec than any person outside of Sir Wilfrid Laurior. He was used as a sen-crow in Ontario by the Conservatives who whispered in the electors' ears that Tarte was n Krenclnnan and a Koman Catholic fanatic and wanted t� place Canada under the heels of France and the Pope. The story was swallowed by a lot oi innocent Protestant electors, who. if they had investigated, would have found Mr Tarte to bo a very liberal man in his views. Tho charge was also nunlo that Mr. T�rt� dominated the government, thut he bossed Sir Wilfrid, but the foolishriiis.s of such a statement was proved by the attitude of the I'remiei when Tarte, contrary to tin- views oaivear presently. .Mr. llorilen did. however, make allusion to the French treaty for the purpose of making it npiicar that duty had l>ceu reduced on cham-pngue in the interest of the working man. Mr. Fielding corrected him and suggested that he should be tiet-4er , informal l>efoiv making such a charge and that the duty on champagne had not Ihvii reduced Mr. Borden concluded his remarks by u few dosuhory remarks on the trade t Liberal majority ever polled in Olds polling district. It bus liecn said, and we lieleve truthfully said, that Dr. Clark Is perhaps the strongest man w-st of the (ireat Ijikes. on political economy and in the discust-ion of tho fundamental principles of Liberalism.

The death of Win. Itarues was par-, tieularly sud. He had worked hard tall his life, very rurely if ever tnk-i ing a holiduy. A few mouths ago he : had Riillioient eonipetency to take a ; vacation: He stnrted on a trip to i t'ne land of his birth, Knglaud. but i the grim reaper claimed him before ; ho was well started on the journey. r Hiding, was born, as .Mr. Knot expresses it "in a moment of weakness." in Manpiett � Co., Wisconsin, in IH.Vi, whence bis parents removed tin. t. same yenr to New Hartford. Muiler I'u . Iowa, which has ever Mine,, boon tie family home. Mr. Knot himself mid bis two sisters at present own the homestead, and this is all the stake Mr Hoot has in the stat.-s now, and all the slake he lias any whole outside his lnvslock, farming and ranching interests in Allrer-la. His father was of Pennsylvania1 Hutch extraction while his mother I was of l-.nglish descent. bi�lli-lieing' born in New \ ork State. In Iowa Mr. Hoot livml up to l'Jiiy, devoting! his attention to buying furms anil j improving them and building up his! live slock interests, with a turn for a few years in the hardware business lu HXll he visited Alliertu and mud* the people of Canada to up his mind to make this his future tor the Liberal policy, home, buying the Spruce llluff farm in lUOa prime minister uttered his opening sentences the members n{ tile house, on both sides g.i\,. him their individual attention, and they were well repaid. After alluding ' -the colonial conference. Sir Wilfrid recalled. for the b.neiit uf Mr Mordoii. that it was tie practice in appoint men to the Cabinet who w.-i  not at the time lee; ibors of th,. House. lie instanced tho cases of Mr. Fielding. Sir Oliver Muwutt. Mr. Illair and Mr. Sif-toii. none of whom were meinlH'rs of lhe House vi'ieli called tn the Cabinet in lsHiti. When confronted with those historic iatts. Mr. llorilen iplickly sllbsioeil. The nit"o do resistance, however, was Pic tearing to pieitw nnd scattering to the four winds o/ the ulleg-ed Halifax platform, which Mr. llorilen desires subst it ute which, as Mr. Fielding says, is the "guiding star of the party." It is remarkable, said Sir Wilfrid, nut for its solidity, but (or its elasticity. It was built, not of oak, but of India lubber. Its planks are not of the or-tlinnrv boards but nameless, shapeless things, intended to contract or s'cliou, adjoining the town and stocking it with Shorthorns uml Percherons, and adding to it u section and a half over the river.
