P. R. yard foreman recently. Other matters intruded, however, and the discussion WaB dropped before proceeding far enough to arrive at a conclusion. .The following excerpts from the; annual report of the city engineer may throw some light on the subject, and explain the need of increased appliances for the 'waterworks department: "The following is a table showing the Quantity of water pumped at the pumping station during the year: Month-- Gallons Per Dny January...... 23,931,000 918,097 February ... ... 26,713,000 921,138 March ..... 28,518,000 919,935 April .'....... 28,938,000 964;600 May ..-...... 35,978,000 1,160*580 June........ 43,062,000 1,435,000 July........ 36,695,000 1,183,710 August i..... 40,074,000 1,292,710 September .... 35,906,000 1,196,000 October...... 35,749,000 1,153,000 November .. 38,064,000 1,169,000 December. .. .. 40,890,000 . 1,319,000 Total consumption in 1912, gallons............419,978,000 Average dally consumption, gallons.......... .. 1,146,900 The maximum pumped was on June 26th, amounting to 2,023,000 gallons." Lethbridge consumed over 400,000,-000- gallons of water during 1912. Where did it all go? The. cost of pumping each thousand gallons of water, .all expenses and overhead charges included, was 11.93 cents. This includes maintenance charges. The profit from the department during the year was approximately $15,- ooo. ; High Pressure System ; Quoting.from, the following recommendations are- made covering the high .pressure system which is-uppermost in the minds of the Are committee and the fnc underwriters just now: "The erid aimed at in this connection is to provide a better working pressure for 'water supplied to business and upper residential districts. It consists in dividing the city into two separate pressure zones. The new elevated water tour (to be erected in North Lethhridge) and most of the piping has been under order for some time, but additional pumping equipment' necessary has not been ordered pending declaration of a definite policy of increase of pumping equipment': at the pumping station. Two schemes are under consideration: . 1 1. The recommending of additional pumping' equipment at the power house. 2. The-installing of booster pumps for the high pressure zone at the top of the hill. The piping and water tower are designed for either scheme." It is likely that a special meeting of the council will be held shortly to consider this, one matter, as in view of the-possibilities of a gravity system, there are many considerations to weigh before coming to a definite conclusion as to what is best to meet the immediate needs of the city, and to set at rest the qualms of Fire Chief Hardy. NIGHT SCHOOLS EDUCATION IN E Enrollment is Quite Pleasing-All Departments Being Well Filled That a really commendable thirst; for learning is -beginning to assert Itself among'a certain class of Leth-bridge's citizens is evidenced by the' large number now in attendance- at; the night classes inaugurated last' spring by the public school board, and if- the attendance continues to In-' crease.'as .it lias increased during the winter months, the night schools will Eoon become a potent factor in educa-" tlonal ci-rcles in this city. Such was the text of a statement made to the Herald by Principal Bailey; of the new Manual Training'and Domestic Science school just opened/ as he was commenting on the various subjects which will be taught when the evening course of studies Is- completed. � � Eighty In Attendance ' ' At the present time .there are 80' pupils attending the night schools regularly, in spite of the fact that the classes have been organized lor a short time. Elementary arithmetic, English, typewriting and stenography are the four subjects on which ail attention is being centred. No advanced studies are taken up as yet. "It is really remarkable the Interest being shown," continued Mr. Bailey, "and I expect we will have all'the pupils we can accommodate next winter when we have the classes In full swing. We will then add classes in. mechanical drawing, woodworking, and electricity. When the forge room is equipped 'wo will also teach metal working, the elements of gas and gasoline engines, and other allied branches, making the course.complete in its mechanical side, and practical to the last degree." During the spring a large class of Celestials' presented themselves -to learn to read and write the English language. There are some half dozen Chinamen in regular . attendance' at the day school. These gathered  up their elder, "brethren,, and within a short time nearly a dozen had- :paid in their fees, and become regular, students, of the night school. While-an innovation here, the night schools seem to have'filled a long-felt want In the city. ' WATCH VEGREVILLE GROW � Vegreville, Alta., Feb.",,10.-'Considerable building development' is anticipated at this point during tbV'conv ing spring.*.

The 'province, with a population of about* �500,000, had 2029 schpol districts at* the close of 1912, as compared with 747. in 1906. The .total amount- of' school debentures authorized in 1912 was $2,808,355, as against $978,550 in 1909. . �. ' �...,''��" . ..; Six hundred.and one teachers, from England, Wales, Ireland, � Scotland,-New. Zealand and the ^various provinces of Canada, were; recognized by-the department and were granted certificates last year,, when .;also 28G teachers were trained' in the normal schools. In addition,^ 414. provisional certificates or permits- were granted to. persons, some of whom had not had any 'educational, ^-braining and many of them -without any experience. The permits were.granted-to keep the schools open, it being, impossible to secure^a sufficient number of certificated teacliors.  It was announced nt tbeiseventh annual conventiqu of School Trustees of Alberta, which closed recently id Ed-' monton, that there is need today for fully 600 qualified teachers. This number will be increased as the year progresses) for the reason that new districts/are geing organized in various parts of the province. The-province now. has two men who are devoting their whole time to this work. �The purpose is to assist* the settlers in the new* districts: in the organization of. rural schools and to ensure satisfactory boundaries. The dei partment also has prepared plans and �specifications! .for rural-.schools and a form of contract to ^'be entered into with the builder, This,will facilitate th.o organization of schpol districts and the construction of proper school buildings,'so that every child in the prpyince'will be given theopportunity of obtaining at least a thorough public school-education. Hon. John R. Boyle, minister of agriculture for Alberta;., announces that the government has decided to establish a'-sUmmer course for teachers where, they will 'be given Jnstruc-tid"n''in-.agriculture, nature study and domestic'vsCience, .wulch,.iwill-,flt thsm: to; teach an elementary course, in these fSubjeatBr -He also referred' to 'legislation ' to provide for consolidated schools in the rural dUtrlct(''-'giving .tie''Villages ,ithe' same Jpbtwer Mn� re-gardftrtoimecUcal inspection ofischool'1 ~h;V''- * rJ.s''"1. .'�ii ' ' ablo to.^emDjioy. stjeclaaistsi. tb-, teach, this work. The towns could not afford to do so. We have >ory few certificated teachers .qualified' to teach either manual training or domestic: science, and it appears to me> that if these subjects are to Be successfully taught in our town and village schools it will have to be-dene by our regular teachers. In order, therefore, to.equip the teachers whom we,are training in our own normal schools,' we have recently established- the equipment and 'the special instructors to teach these subjects to our teach-ers-inVtijaining .in. the normal schools at Callgary'an^ Camrdse.. i - , . ^ ": . "It will do difficult to successfully, teach these subjects in our rural long as the presen.t(Syscem of small districts prevails.,^ Th^probr lem, however, will be reasonably well solved where consolidated, schools are established, .it,being possible there to., have the room and equipment, and, with the school being conducted as a graded school the teachers.,will have time to teach these subjects.-., Where Need Is Great " "The children in our .schools' are not, in my opinion^ as'much in need of this, class of are those In the urban settleinents. Children upon the farm receive a great deal of practical instruction-'at home, but ther^ is one class of instruction which I think it is the duty of our public school system to supply its rural districts, arid that'lis instruction in agriculture. I believe thai if our teachers were properly''qualified to tea,ch this Biibject that it is .quite possible to t'each an elementary course in scientific agriculture in our rural schools; even in the ungraded small district school system in vogue at the present time. . ' ' . � "It should be an easy matter to have a garden plot fcr demonstration purposes, and a simple equipment in hhe school itself; As the great proportion of the children '-'who receive their training in our rural schools will be following agriculture as their voca tion in life, I think we are justified in endeavoring to give vocational education on agricultural lines in these schools. "We intend beginning next-summer to conduct every year,'the 1:'summer courses for the training of teachers along these lines. It is our intention to offer some inducements to teachers to take this course, so that we hope in time to have all our -rural teachers qualified to teach this elementary course in agriculture.- We-'hope also ,jTOLD PARISHIONERS N0T',^Q LOSE FAITH AND INTEREST BECAUSE RECTOR WAS ^ $|f PERFIDIOUS ~'i -m to be able to have to teach manual.-, training or domestic science, so-.fcnati one qualified in each of these subjects may be available for each' fown;.. and village in the province,��>'. -v-,  ;"The influx of population'intoHtiiisj province in the last few years "'has' been most remarkable.'" The-next'ten;' years will probably see a still* larger;, influx, and it appears to" me that it should be the ambition of the people who are here today to see. to'it"that the boys and girls who are- being? trained in our public'schools receive an edhcation.
