For the protection of 'these misguided mortals wheendeav-, ^r" -to -turn a public service Jnto ^vehicle Tor tpo' often their own vin-. dictive purposes, we, accordingly, r"''"'print' the postal regulation regarding � i."'to such matters which is as follows: It is forbidden to post for de-livery or transmission by or : ; through the post any obscene or immoral booh; pamphlet, picture;' print, engraving, lithograph, photograph or other publication,, matter or thing, of an indecent; f -immoral, seditious, disloyal or \ scurrilous .character, or any letter 'upon the outside or envelope of  ''which, or any post card or post band or wrapper upon which :that means to expedite tie delivery of mail - should' be put .* 'into practice. - This is greatly in the I, haicds of^the* people'It they -chodse'tp '!

The delay, consequent on poBta} "j carriers having to wait for an answer, ?^ to a'knock or ring where such cori- - .|, v�nlonce's are absent, is an appreci-r* able one.

After, some weeks tho envelope was discovered by the lady behind a (supboardin her kitchen. It was-the pld-story,--with the Chinook as prin-^ipal^aotor.. 'The opening of the front dpor, the kitGh�n door being left ajar, was sufficient to create the necessary draught to .drive the missive unnoticed� to its- biding place. The moral is-Provide a proper mail receptacle to-prevent much ado about nothing. Independently of the Post Office, the Herald would incidentally derive � much ^advantage in the matter of pleas ing its subscribers if the carrier boy can.deposit-the paper In a mall box.

Canadian plant in order that it may export on preferred � terms to the greatest group of  consuming markets of tho world, i � Anything coming from a Unionist source -evidently finds ready accept-ance -by the' Conservative News, but if we'-are to read its remarks aright tne proposed' preference-points to the prospect of 'our manufactured indus-srfies'bec'omlng placed largely in the hands of'American concerns. Accoi'd-iiug to- the News, and others who {thought.with It, the public were led rto-believe -that one-of-the evils con-is'eqijeat.'o'n ,tjfe passing ,of the reclpro-*cityc''measure> would -be the Introduc-tlfonfofi.-'njionopollstlc and other abuses which existed in the States. There Avas-also �the great danger of -the ?iAmerlca4. invasion," In a commercial i&pjise'r lH0W6v.er,"as the emanation of a! new tf'ade .policy comes from what '"""'" "'" political affinity, the old note of alarm is significantly absent. The hollowness^of therprevious cry therefore becomes apparent. No,t. only thls^ Tho .preference Mr. Law proposes is a quid pro quo for a further reduction which he anticipates in the duties at present placed on British goods imported here. But, notwithstanding this, the News says that the Unionist program will tend to enrich and multiply Canadian industries. What now becomes of the objections raised , by the ."interests" and their organs to the raising of the British preference? y -i Whether the proposed Law tariff will be of much service to.Canada can best be gauged by a survey of what is at present imported by Canada to Great Britain. The figures And particulars are taken f-roih the Toronto Globe which makes the assertion that a, careful study of them will show that, so far as manufactured goods are concerned, they constitute only about five por cent, of these imports: In the year ending March 31, 1912, according to the returns of the Canadian Department of,Trade and Commerce, Canada sent to Britain products valued at $151,853,413, of which only four and a. half miUfpp. dollars' worth, were" not of her own production. Of this total export of $151,853,-413 no less tl^an .$U5,965,Qa2- consist- ed of foodstuffs, hay. and unmanufactured wood,'IcavJpg but $15,887,721 for all other exports. Here are the principal oIasse.s of Canadian, exports during the iflscal year of 1911-12, upon which Mr. Bonar Law says no preferential duty could be given: Live animals ............$ 3,388,241 Breadstuffs �......... 78,258,736 Fish............... 4,281,774 Fruits ..,...... 4,975,295 Hay ............... 1,027,995 Provisions, such as butter, cheese, bacon, meats, �ggs. and. lard......-31,705,0:62 Seeds ..V. .... 1,204,254 Unmanufactured wood ... 11,124,335 Total............$135,965,6s)2 Among the one-tenth left are drugs and chemicals, $491,564, which in* eludes such things as calcium carbide-, phosphorous, ars-enic, etc.; furs and skins valued at $l,S4S,726;, unmanufactured leather .valued at ,$1,022,252; aluminum In bars and ingots $256,561; ashestosj $165,424; copper, $396,955; rags, $238,74d; junk, $368,777: sliver in ore, $3,916,586; nickel in ore or matte, $76S,232; paper, $613,687;-seal, whale, and other fish oils, $801,272; agricultural implements, * $45';5,692; manufactured wood, consisting chletly of wood pulp for paper-making, $1,-018,695.' . .

Two weeks- from- today-election day again. ..Candidates..have another week in which to feel the pulse of the people.

With so linle to debate on they should have been through long .ago. , - The people o� Alberta say "Hear, hear," to the suggestion of W. F. MacLean, Conservative, In the Domin-ion house that the Supreme Court of Canada should be the. last court of appeal for Canadian cases. And W.F. is not an anti-Imperialist either. Hon. Geo. E. Foster says the federal government "may" build 'internal elevators.

He is F. J. Nottage, of North West Rhodesia, and - he is now engaged in developing-and. arranging his films for public, exhibition. Mr. Nottage, accompanied by two other white men, MessTS. R.

For the fit^f Jthree months the party travelled through the; lo.w-lying Luano Valley and the surrounding plateau, taking a large number of pictures, which included many hippopotami.and crocodile. In May they headed.north as far as the, Kafue river, and here they constructed a flotilla^ of native dug-out canoes and navigated the Kafue for several hundred miles^ while the native porters* to the number of about fifty, trekked overland.. Then for three months the. .adventurous party were in a veritable paradise of-big game. Thousands of head of every description of animal were met with, hundreds In herds of a single variety being-seen almost-every day. On one day, says Mr. Nottage,,they saw no fewer than 13 dift'erentispecies including . lion, buffalo,., roan, zebra,, hartebeeste, wart-hog, water-buck and eland. Between the middle .of.
