DEPARTMENT I'm m the line of policy., it adopts, it would appear that a pullic as the Post Office considers 11- self first and the public' afterwards. To put It In plain words. policy of thre public department is on a par with the 'public." The latest freak, for there is 110 better word to describe, the procedure, is the. alter- ing of..tho sen-Ice of the mall between Lethbridge aud Commerce so that lmail one day Is not de- in Cbm'mcVce until tie after- the and Commerce Is only within nine miles' from the Hly' In this procedure the Post Of- 'fice has a roundahout'way of ing ita business, .as denoted by the route 'ffie malUjB' dellVer- efto a sh'ort distance t In carryiaa; mail fe-tommerce from the city, tt Shipped to: Calfirj- b, at 3.1 o'cipck' jn He arrifipis at Calgary'lit o'clock.

The early morning train, It should be noted, passes Kipp. The reason given by the postal author- ities for this up qnd. down arrange- Ulelit1 in 'the'.: mail delivery from Lelh- to Commerced that on Pecem- her 31st last the agreement with "the Cbinook Coal Co. for tho conveyance of mail between Commerce and Kipp expired, the company declining1, to continue the service. A new arrange- rneut became necessary, and, owing to the great increase In the cost, tie De- partment -arranged to combine '.the side service at Commorce with that at Diamond City, by which the eichaige with train No, 511 was superseded by a service with train No. 5ljjj> (ind, consequently, Commerce di- rect service with I-ethbridge. if This evidently so far .as "tho PostjOfficr Is concerned Is well and good; "what ever inconvenience the public suffers n a secondary consideration, ovei which we may take It, the Post Office Department does not worry overmuch The excuse given by the P.

H Is time that a department of character should be- brmiclit to THE CHURCH AND CO-OPERATION One of the great addresses at the recent Social welfare Congress ol Canada was given by Hev. Dr. WWth M. 7lppy, secretary of the Federal Council of Churches In tlie United States. Dr. Tippy had just returned irom a visit to Europe, where- be had been estimating tha force ot uevv social movements and the possible changes lo be effected by them. His story of what he had seen aud heard in Britain, Belgium. France, Holland, Uermany aud Russia was an impres- sive one. Xot less Impressive was his outline ot the activities of tho Council he represented. It-was made plain that the "warring sects" of Pro- tastantltm in the United States are studying something else than war Just now. They are uniting .their re- sources of mind and wealth In H downright and vigorous endeavor to bring social justice and spiritual cul- ture, to tho great mass of the people of their country Among other things c said wft? "We are getting deiinlte- behind fte co-operative movement." Commenting on Dr. Tippy's utter- nces Professor Macmillau observes t some may wonder what there is I the movement morei ban In many other movements to en-' age the sympathy of reiigious men, lewly awakened to the- vast needs of millions of their fellow beings. He :omcs to the conclusion that the rea- :on lies In that they see in co-opera- ive organizations a realization of cen- ral- Christian principles. They tend o unite their members for another lUrpoce than that of battling with ther organizations. That is to say, are not propagators of class- antagonism and class-hatred. Fur- .her, they provide an education for .heir members in mutual service. That s to say, they are phenomena of brotherhood rather than ot contest, of kindness rattier than of enmity, and of union rather than of division. knows that the man who rankly admits that he believes in goodneis rather than in cleverness is ikely to be sneered at as.a simpleton or a hypocrite. The public will oc- allow a man who has .emonstraled his smartness to in- lulge himself iri modest efforts' to do ;ood. But the'man who comes on the stage and announces himself as a champion of goodness, first and last, s likely to lose his chance of a able .hearing. "His talk is dubbed 'Sunday-school tt nnrtt that the aver- age man believes that goodness does not succeed. ;'To tie practical is to be not 'righteous Of course has' bis conventional standards, nnd .there are things he will not do. But the'mlssionary, the Sunday-school teacher and the parson are -types which he does not love and admire. He thinks they ahe not masculine types.' Yet he will not deny that certain of tho -professedly good men have made good. He acknowledges the PA ICKED UP IN ASSING FOB THE UOrV Perth County council aa increase to Ntchol.

Major Keteneson; of Belle ville, was found dead in a refriger ator car at Graftpn Saturday mom herolam of David Livingstone and Cardinal Merclcr. He regards. 'them as. truly saintly, and reverences them as having been too good for tbla world. He does not consider them as men of-his own kind at all. lie apotheosizes them. And thus ho loses what influence on his behaviour the! tnle'ot hare exerted. He does 'no imitate them, for he thinks they an above bis imitation. Now, this clerical and eccleslBatica championship of the co-operative movements is an endeavor to furthe goodness among men. It is likcl> that it will fail of Its end to soim extent because of the prejudiC' 'against the churches. The average man will suspect that cooperation i not really clever, not likely to BUCCOCC In accomplishing anything economic ally worth while, or the churche would not have taken it up. He wil bo less apt to lifiMn to Invitation lo join a co-operatlvo noclely, and wil harden himself In conviction o the ineptitude of good men. Yet tbo QTeragr man, with his ador- ation of cleverness, might shaken in his self-confidence. Ho lias had his way in business and govern- ment for a century, and lha world has fallen Into a desperate condition. Distraction, misery, mutual suspicion, wanton luxury, Industrial strife nnd revolutionary plots cover the face of the civilized earth. Tha devotion and aarrHJCD of the war has given place lo-a. wildness ot and thought such .as alarm and dismay us; The nations seem to be splitting .into classes, each of which roars on the others, clamoring for privileges of wh.'ch It claims it has been ;bed.
