Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - February 13, 1913, Lethbridge, Alberta Thursday;, February 13,1913 THE LETHBKIDGE DAILY HERALD Pasre 5 OWN PUBLIC Solicited Aid of School Board -Trustees Favor it~Up to Council It is' generally' conceded that it would be a flcto thing "to have a public library in Letiibridge. Two years ago the ratepayers by an overwhelming vote said so." But 'to -date the library has not materialised;, randf one -may look in private libraries for' information usually contained in the up-to-date institution. The ladies,. of Letiibridge, want a library established at once. They .have waited longer than long enough. So to further .their end they are going about it in devious ways to gain their end. The Women's, Civic Club at a meeting held not long ago 'decided to. campaign for a library. Then the Mathesls Club, a new organization which is making itself heard, got into the game, and together 'they are attacking the organizations j 'composed of men in charge of city;af-i fairs. At the School Board meeting last night a letter was read from the Mathesls Club asking that the board lend ltB' aid to the establishment of the long hoped'for'Horary. The" Civic" Club was mentioned in the project as also being in favor. While the School Board felt that it is outside its province, there was considerable discussion on the matter. "It's a burning shame a town of tills size cannot point to a public library," said J. D. Higlnbortham. "Why not start one right away, if only in a small \way'!" That was as a suggestion from Superintendent Hamilton, who is naturally greatly inter-; ested. He thought a room or building could- bo rented temporarily which: would answer the purpose, and after -the.institution had once been established, he .was sure there would be no difficulty in raising the money to �build" a building that would be a credit to. the city. Andrew Carnegie's "mouey does not appeal to Hie two ladles' clubs which have started 'this campaign. They' want a civic library, built and owned l>y the.people themselves. However, $25,00.0 of the steel magnate's money .'might not be sniffed at if the city council were to show that they intended to go after it for the purpose of building a library; � � It is likely that the city council Will be attacked next. The school board will endorse the project and lend their moral, support, but theyhave-np power to go further. '*' If the council this year does not toe the scratch and set the -wheels turning, there will be a different tale to tell next year. The ladies want that library, and remember, next year the ladies of Lethbridge have a vote on municipal matters. That will surely be' one 6*f' the planks on their platform, and it will he short shift for the candidates who do not solemnly swear to erect a public library with the least possible delay. Most of th*S other matters discussed at the regular monthly meeting of the board last night were of a routine character. The superintendent of city schools presented his  report - for January. The attendance, figures for the month were as follows: .'. '.. 1361 1237 Average dally attendance 1139 990 Percentage......84 .80 These figures were very, gratifying to the board. He also reported that >the attendance following the opening of the Galbraith school, was better than hei expected. Yesterday there were 190 'pupils'*' ill' 'five "rooms. opened in the Galbraith school and'.280 in eight rooms in Westminster, making a total of 470 pupils in attendance .north of the track. This "is a little,over one third t>f-the:total school population in attendance at'the public schools, J. Morgan,... inspector of public schools, is making .his annual inspec tion, which will not be completed-for several days yet. , . i, . On the application of Lieut. Firmer, cadet instructor, a bond for ?500 was Issued for 20 new rifles for target practice :being issued by the . department of militia for use by cadets, at tending the new Galbraith school.' ,� ; - . . For the first time in the history of the board a report from a truancy officer was received^--This is a new regulation: of the department. There were $1 cases of absence last month, of which 79 were excusable, with two cases of truancy. , . The report of Chairman Wallace and Secretary Fleetwood, delegates to the Trustees Convention at Edmonton was-read and adopted. .;��..� EXPERIMENTAL FARM REPORT .0- Annual" Blue ,'Book Contains Much of Interest to the Agriculturist The report'.of. the Experimental Farms, for the. year ending March 31, 1912, is out. Of all the,many publications issued from time to time by the Departmen't of Agriculture at Ottawa this annual report is by far the most comprehensive as it deals with practically every, phase of Canadian agri-culturaTactlvlty, ranging from the cultivation of fruits and ornamental �plants to the'growing and preserving of corn for stock food; - from the hatching and roaring of fowls to the rearing and feeding, of cattle, sheep and swine; from the. management of beos to the protection of crops from Insects and disease, and so on throughout;tHe; whole range of farming. , The, first 230 pages 'are devoted to the reports of officials whose bead-. .".'Quarters^RFe. at .the Central Farm: at Ottawa, the remaining 216. pages dealing with experiments and investigations, being carried "on at the ten broiufch *, farms and stations distributed dyer tho". different provinces.; " 'This Is the-, first annual report issued by the-new director; Mf. Grisdale, who in tiw section designated; "The Report of 'the "Director," gives out'1 miuch jinterosting information con-, oe'raing the peculiarities- of weather and vegetation -. alt such outlying districts as Forti"Vermilion' in the-Feace; River district, Athabasca Landing, Alberta; Salmon Arm, and Kamloops, B, C, and other places. '�' ' .'-In .this.section'of the1 report many JX........_________ ,culturalj problems of- the prairies are dealt with in summaries of investigational work carried on at Brandon, Indian Head, .Rosbheru, Scott, Lacombe and Lethbridge; These experiments deal with prairie breaking,. depth of ploughing, summer fallow treatment, stubble treatment, seeding, to grass and clovers, applying barn yard manure, green manuring, seed bed preparation, soil packers, depth of seeding, commercial fertilizers and under-draining. Descriptions are given of new varieties . of fruits- originated at the central experimental farm. There is also an account of growing tomatoes under glass and an article on. the culture- of - roses, with results of testing different varieties. The Dominion cerealist," Dr. Ohas. E. Saunders, besides reporting, the results of many experiments in field and laboratory work, announces a ;new wheat which promises' to "become i.of great value in the- more northerly agricultural sections of Canada. It "ripens fully  a. week -earlier .than. "Marquis" \ and rankB very high in baking -strength. This new sort, which has been named "Prelude," is also a good yieldor.
