A DicfcettWU Urd SNtkri Alberta And an Important Part In Its Early History E. >f. Barker, of CarUston, in the Edmonton Saturday News: It is said that many of our race just grow up accepting their situa- tion in life as they find it, adjusting themselves to their surroundings and following political and religious beliefs that they imbibe from their parents, so drift on to old agcrexact counterparts of those gone before. good opinion of to hold hcrx- sway over .the situation with reign unquestioned by any con- temporary small fry. This being was Jack Duchess, a small cut, the roothor of our early and most necessary felines. In recording early .days in Southern Alberta it would be the play of Uamlet with Hamlet left out, to overlook the" Duchess. She wan small and pretty with light, rather cold blue eyes, her col- or the fanciers call the blue tortoise shell. She carried herself well with a serene, contemplative and positive demeanor, that appeared to the cas- ual observer as natural and that would not easily be disturbed. Stran- gers she calmly surveyed wiih her cool critical eye, not a muscle mov- ing, which reminded one of the most-' finished stage of the accomplished society dowager the younger impecunious son has been sitting in.

HEK PLACE IX SOCIETY possibly our younger scion of a leads them to notice things that pass unnoticed-in more familiar lat- itudes. Possibly the reader will wonder whither we are now directing our gaze, but, to cut it short, we shall say it is to consider the harmless necessary cat in relation to the pro- gress of the world, and particularly in the development of Alberta a cat has been quite a factor. IN JEARLY DAYS Most old-timers and even those res- ident here today, are aware that the prairie teams with mice and ground squirrels. In early days hawks and owls were more prolific and so kept these pests more in check, but the untutored gunner, who knows little and cares less about distinguishing between the harrier or the falcon, the goshawk and the osprey, the harmless or the harmful owl, kills everything that'flutters as a bird of prey and that he thinks is a menace to his So mice and rats and vermin prosper. After our mice and rats are edu- cated to traps "or poison we nothing to fall back upon, but the much-abused and oft ill-treated cat. to whom we owe so much and to whom we, as a rule, show so little gratitude.

The Duchess was perfectly sure of his position and was satisfied with her life and had no further aspirations that we kiwjw of. The Duchess, her name implies, was a keen student) of life as it is, being a dependent of a family that ,was sacred in. the land of IPharohs, and wnosv ancestors were buried with ix-gal honors she maintained a place in early Alberta society that was not only disting- uishable but essential.
