It is very true that a big crowd interferes with n fire brigade and that often a goo'd deal of thieving is done 'on such occasions. But on the other hand the interests of the owner of the property either burning or in danger of burning must be considered. He should know about it as quickly as possible. There may be valuable pa- pers or goods that might easily be se- cured if anyone knew where and how to get them quickly. The firemen, of course, unless instructed by the owner or someone else who knew, could not know. Serious and often irreparable loss would thus olten be entailed which otherwise could be avoided. A man has a right to know when his property is .on fire or in danger and he cannot know this quickly without some kind of public fire alarm. CANADA JUSTIFIED That Canada is justified in showing .the utmost unconcern as to what course the .United States government takes with, regard to the .tariff shown in the- ex- pression of opinion by some of the Am- erican, journals. In a recent issue the Great Falls (Montana) Tribune, a paper that is: closely in touch with Canada, especially the western part, says: "There is a cool aloofness in the Canadian attitude that does not augur well for any reciprocity treaty between the United States and Canada at pres- ent, and it, is only fair to say that this country Is to blame for it .It ,is only human nature to resent being shut off from a better market across an invis- ible line, and in the effort to keep the tanner loyal to a protective tariff that pays such rich graft to the manufactur- ers all farm products from Canada have been effectively excluded from the United States by our tariff wall, thus increasing to us the cost of liv- ing." While the market in the United States is a valuable one for Canadians, and it-would not be a good thing to nave anything done to intertere with it, it is very evident that should any at- tempt be made to coerce Canada from a commercial standpoint, the United States would get the worst of it. This has been the opinion freely expressed by the great majority of American pa- pers and statesmen who have said any- thing about it So although President Taft delays in announcing that Can- ada is in the favored minimum tariff list of countries, no fear need be enter- tained but what the announcement will be made. DEAR FOOD ON THE'NERVES "Why let the high cost of living get on your Dr. Harvey W. Wiley, Chief of the Bureau of Chemistry in the Department of Agriculture, at Wash- ington, declares that there would be no need for it if his advice were followed. Just go ahead as you have been doing; eat the same sort of meat as you have been eating, if you want to, only cut the amount down a half, and make up the deficit in your stomach with more cereals canned meats and canned vegetables. Dr. Wiley has prepared a bill of fare for one day for a family of six. For breakfast there is cereal, 5 cents; corned beef hash or scrapple, 10 cents; coffee, 10 cents; and bread aad rolls, 10 cents. Lunch, salmon, or chipped beef, 10 cents; potatoes, boiled or baked, 10 cents; bread and butter, 10 cents; tea, 5 cents. Dinner, vege- table soup and meat from soup brown- ed, 15 cents; potatoes, turnips, 10 cents; canned apple pie, 10 cents; oof- fee, 10 cents; bread and butter, 10 cents. Here are very good meals for a day for a family of six at a total cost, of 81.25. which car.not be considered ex- travagant, and the cost of which could be appreciably lessened if more nutri- The Lethbridge Daily Herald, Saturday, February tlous bread were eaten. Dr. Wiley has forty-five expert investigators- at vrork, and making daily reports toihim about the various kinds of food that enter in- to interstate'eonmjerce, and for the past twenty years be has made the things we sat his life study. The re- sult its that he tells us in the first place not to worry, as worry is bad and upsets the digestion. Then he advises us to make a study of the dally papers for the bargains in food products that are to be found in nearly every big city on certain days of the week. But whatever we do, he begs us not to be- come faddists on food. "1 have no use for the food-crank, be he the vegetar- ian, the food-and-nut enthusiast, or the fellow who goes through life riding on the no-cooked-victuals wagon. From all that I have been able to learn about they live no longer than the rest of us poor mortals and I am sure they always look hungry. Every time I meet one of them, I feel like inviting him to come uto the nearest restaurant with me to share a good, tender, juicy I happen to have the price at the time." For this reason Dr. Wiley is not in favor of the "No meat for six months' boycott; but he has an idea that those who sail into them soon sail out again. Anyway, man is a creature of varied diet.; his teeth as well as his digestive tract being built with that end in view, and suddenly to switch off to an all-vegetable ration would very possibly play havoc with his health. Youn? people can make ex- periments with comparative impunity, but for old people, though there may in many cases be good reason for curtail- ment, radical changes are not to be commended. OUR POINT OF VIEW Commissioner Perry will be able to show them how to organize a mounted police force in South Africa if they want one. It is to be hoped that the city coun- cil goes through with that dog by-law. It looks pretty good and is in accord- ance with dog by-laws that many other towns and cities have. It will not be long before this city needs a street railway, to say nothing of the suburban towns. Aid. Oliver is right in saying that the council should start at once to gather information re garding civic owned lines. By the sirne the facts are gathered together it will be time to use them in practice. Next year will see the railway started without a doubt. Calgary- has a new motor chemical engine. Talk about Premier Whitney is trying to square himself against the acusation of work- ing the spoils system and has appoint- ed a Liberal to be a deputy minister. Premier Whitney finds a successor to A. W. CampbeH among the Liberal party. There will be some soreheads among the Ontario Tories. Calgary is warning Edmonton that Lethbridge will soon be laying claim to her position as the second city. Cal- gary seems to en joying a. blissful confidence of security in her own posi- tion, but even Calgary will sit up and take notice some of these days. The premier, who is also minister of education, has taken the initiative to- wards forming an Educational Associ- ation for the province. It is a good move and should result in lasting edu- cational benefits for the province. The association will include teachers, trus- tees and those who are engaged in the training of teachers. The different bod- ies will get to understand one another better and the whole work of education will be more of a unit.

Coming Back At Uc (Stratford The Lethbridge Herald says that all crazy ideas do not originate in one council chamber, and from the .tenor of the paragraph wherein this state- ment is made, it is implied that there are some foolish aldermen in Toronto as well as in Lethbridge. Quite likely. it's Not All Noise Either (Orillla If one may judge Lethbridge, Aiber- tu, by its "holler" it will soon be the "hub" of the universe.

The class how- ever, was ready, as usual, with full information. i "It's a pin he's he said, tri- umphantly. "Take it away from him and bring it said the instructor. The of- fending pin was taken to her, and there was no more trouble from Ar- thur. Presently it was the young- ster's turn to read, but instead of standing up as the other students had done he sat still and looked frighten- ed. "Well, why don't you proceed with the exclaimed the teacher, "if you misbehave any more I shall make an example of you." "Please, teacher." stuttered little Arthur, "I can't stand up 'cause the pin you took keeps my pa-pants up."

About King Edward As An is. not generally known that King Edward is more than an ordinarily clever artist, and when he was younger he used to paint and draw a good deal. This talent he no dqubt inherited from Queen Victoria, whose artistic gifts were well known' Some time ago, when the King was sit- ting for his portrait to a certain fam- ous artist, he made an amusing confes- sion reminiscent of his boyhood. "In my said his .Majesty, laughing, "we used to fix our drawings merely with milk, but I believe that when I began to draw I usually drank the milk instead of using it for my work." His Majesty's Broken hard and fast rule of King Edward when Playing bridge is never to play with any younger lady who has not attained the age of twenty-one. His Majesty has only been known to break this rule once, and that was a short time ago while staying at the country house of some very old friends. On that occa- sion the daughter of his host was chos- en as his partner. She had known the King since babyhood, but he said to her very kindly: "You are not vet twenty-one. On principle I never play with litle girls under that age." As it happened, the "little in anticipa- tion of being allowed to play with so illustrious a partner, had been prac- ticing for months, and so earnestly and tearfully did she plead that His Majesty was at last forced to give way. But he was emphatic on the point that he broke this rule just this once th be broke this rule "only just this once You may have been told that fruit farming is not u poor man's proposition We wish to state that under ANY conditions, fruit farming on the Arrow Lakes requires less capital than grain raising ou the prairie, and under our system, wo make it possible for a man to go into fruit farming, aud eventually secure himself a home in this MOST DESIRABLE PART OF THE'WOHLD, ON LESS THAN CAPITAL We cannot use this space for details, but can show you if you will call, or we will forward the figures, which wo have had verified by actual farmers.
