PROPOSED BUILDING OF KIPP-RETLAW LINE A highly and encouraging anuounce- ment Is that made by the Canadian Pacific Railway that it will apply to the Parliament ,of Canada at its neit session for an Act authorizing it to t-onslruct what is known as the Klpp- Kellaw railway, which will go Ihrough Turin and fo> silly miles, when com- plcled, will "run through a district which at lhat time, it Is hoped, will be -under irrigation. hopeciof Lethbridge and the which the contemplated line will feed have long been fixed building of the same, and it Is eicced- ingly salisfactory to note that some- thing in practical shape is lo ensue in. the steps that the C.P.R. is taking. A railway such as that spoken of has long been regarded as a vital need tor this part of Ihe country and, in the plan proposed, will mean very much farmers along the line to be., Independently of the facilities ot Intercourse with the district which the projected railway will give, there is the important- fact that by It Leth- bridge wjll be placed in a position ot direct communication with "ihe Irrl- Bated district ot the Canada Land and Irrigation Co., where the certainty IB assured that the -water will be on the land'in a short lime. As a commercial asset lo the city Ibis does not.heed expanding on. "It may-bo a coincidence, or it mar the new enterprise si-the -.railway company follows hard on the heels of the contemplated irrigation i projects in tbe .district. In this at feast we may take it thai -il is an -of thsrprc-fltiiii! pesuHg that irrigation will bring. It serves to pro- chilnVthe fact that will' ha the handmaid of irriga- will doubly itie be-nefits ot the same. THE UNCERTAINTY OF THE BELT LINE Punctuality Is considered a virtue. This applies to the running ot street cats as well as to other things. If the street car system places any slock oil its receipts, it is important that there should be a measure of cer- tainty as to the arrival and departure of cars at the various calling stations on their route; falling this, many an individual who would use- the street cars regularly would prefer to walk rather than take a chance of travel- ling ou a car whose time schedule is most uncertain. This phase of the situation obtains in the city at the present ttme in regard to the belt line. The white cars, as C2 the belt Itae known, are the most un- certain as to their arrival and depart- ure from points where they are sche- duled to be. If one places any faitn in this schedule, he or she is doomed to disappointment and much vexa- tion of spirit. The cars are presumed tu mate the ro-jr.i trip in 15 minutes. The nioiorman who does this unfail- ingly will be worthy of a prlie in that without any the trip, we are given to understand, will take 12 minutes. With the 15 minutes al- lowed it means that only 3 minutes are allowed for picking up which is a temptation for the -rautor- inan who has a respect for punctuality to ignore passengers who may bo hurrying, down-i side street, with so much loss in fares to the street car system. There is nothing to commend Inn belt lino schedule, In that ft accom- plishes nothing. Better make the trip a longer one and ensure satisfaction in making tho public assured of the time the care will be at the street corners.

This action was takeu by the council so that those farmers who did not to av e the ready cash or who were unable to'borrow from a loan company would be able to get ample seed to put in'their crop. ID order to get this seed all that is neces- sary is to furnish the security requir- ed by the seed grain act passed by tho last session of the provincial par- liament.

During that lime the largest salary he received was and a furnished house, but bis average sti- pend did not exceed ?800 yearly. His annnal retiring allowance from the church was ten dollars for each year of his active ministry, or J400. other sources he received in bis first year of retirement moneys.'dncludlrig for "w.cddlng fees and sundries" and for summer supply work, leaving him with a net income of JGtiLt. That required careful management be- fore the war. How far would It go now? The dollar of 1913 baa, accord- ing to the. statisticians, a purchasing power of.47 cents. That means that the Income of JGOO in 1913, if available now, baa a value ot But the man's power to earn the "sundries' and other eilras has declined.
