To bear the burdens which come upon us calls for great fortitude. To reason out why pain and suffering are too often the lot of humanity is not easy. To "kiss the rod" is oftentimes too difficult, in the exercise of what is termed Christian resignation. It may be that this Christian resignation means a very great deal, and it may be that in the afflictions which fall on humanity deiiviTod. rer there is behind them a Divine Purpose, in the truth that in the exercise of this resignation there is the call for the exemplification of Christian virtue. "Long relates Kipling in his when Devadetta was King of all listen to the ISIT TO THE CITY j was captured for a time by the if gratitude is the true recompense king's hunters, and, ere he broke free, beringed with a WIVES OF SOLDIER-FARMERS VISIT for efforts made on behalf of others, then the local Council of women have much to be thankful over ia the ap- preciation bestowed on them by the wives of the soldier-farmers for the splendid tirao given them in the city. The feeling of these women, the great number of them strangers in a strange land and new to conditions and life on grievous leg-iron. This he strove to remove with hate and frenzy in his heart, and, hurrying up and down the forests, besought his brother-elephants to wrench it asunder. One by one, with their strong trunks, they tried and failed. At the last they gave it as their opinion that the ring was not to be broken by any bestial power. And _ in a thicket, new-born, wet with the moisture of birth, lay the prairie farms, j a day-old calf of the herd whose mother had died; The perhaps, ..there has been an illusion, i fettered -elephant, forgetting his own agony, said: "If I in what settlers havo to face, was wei Ci0 not hel this sucklin it will erish under our feet."

The women from the soldiers' settlements will go bach from all that they have learnt the lec- tures and demonstrations given with a new interest in farm life. They will carry with them much that will brighten their home life on the farm and add to their usefulness as help- mates to those whose fortunes they are sharing on the soldier settlement farms of Southern Alberta. But above this and beyond this will b'e the remembrance'of the kindly feeling of the women of the city in arranging for their coming to Lethbridge and in making their visit a particularly happy one. The idea of bringing the wives of the soldier-farmers to the city was a happy cme- The program mapped out equally happily thought out, and in all is a credit to the inspiration and effort of the women "behind it: The In- vitation to the wives of the soldier- farmers, in the success of the present one, will no doubt be an anuual in- stitution, and being so will serve as something in the way of hapgy re- collections and happy anticipation for these soldier farmwires. With this also there cannot but be among them the thought that what their husbands diuln the. war has not been forgotten by the women of Lethbridge; with the friepdly reception given them there -was the recollection, with, re- membrance, of this. WATER RATES AND THE METER The question Of water meters has at one time been raised in the city, and found favor with the' city council. In Montreal, the question which was once before the citizens of Lethbridgef is now before the citizens there, in the proposal that is afoot to instal ;water meters. The Financial Times, published in Montreal, deals with the question of meters in a manner which should be of interest to householders of Lethbridge. It' takes up the argu- ment, which is a general one amongst those who favor meters, by saying that the contentions of their claim cannot be assailed on the grounds of justice any more than can be assail- ed the justice of the grocer charging his customers on the basis of what they purchase and the milkman doing likewise in the liquid he supplies. But says the paper "from anothe1 standpoint, however, there is good cause to object to the meter pro posal. Meters cost money. Thi meter is the best possible system for keeping accounts as tekwcen differ ent an'd the city and levy ing the charge in proportion to use But, as in the case of many porfec cost-systems, the cost of the system Is Its own condemnation. Instead o operating to reduce the price of the article, It may operate to increase it "What the public wants, in this case, is not so much a luster charge It I get all the water I want and my neighbor uses more than I, yet pays the same, what It is to mo that und the meter system of obtaining justice the. charge to him would, be incr unless the charge to me-is lessened? "Of one thing we can at least be certain at the present time, namely, that whether there is justice or not as between consumers, at least non of the money paid by consumers goes to pay interest on the cost of metors and their installation. Jt goes .direct to the city and Is there directed or misdirected according to the muni- cipal method of treating revenue. Further, the revenue from water taxes la part of the general revenue of the do not help this suckling it will perish under our feet." So 'he stood above the young thing, making his legs but- tresses against the uneasily moving herd; and he begged milk of a virtuous cow, and the calf throve, and the ringed elephant was the calf's guide and defence. And all the while the fetter ate into the flesh. "Then one clafUhe young elephant saw the half-buried iron, and turning to the elder, said: 'What is 'It is even my said hB who had befriended him. Then that other put out his trunk and in the twinkling of an eye-lash abolished the ring, saying: 'The appointed time has come.' So the virtuous elephant who had waited temperately and had done kind acts was relieved, at the appointed time, by the very calf whom he had turned aside to cherish." The story related is from a heathen sacred book of old philosophy, but, nevertheless, it contains something of the philosophy of the human mind that has given thought to the ills which from the earliest ages have afflict- ed mankind. It may be that it is something of the Divine spark which comes to men, no matter their beliefs, who are creatures of the Creator of all. It teaches, no matter its source, something of the philosophy of life which human beings should apply when they wonder why they are called on to bear afflictions which are reckoned to be beyond human endurance. There is much in the appointed time when our rows sha.ll cease and the deliverance .shall arrive. Even the heathen story is a warning against the rebellious spirit. Much more does the Christian faith proclaim its great consolation, that out of the darkness the day shall dawn, out of the winter shall come the summer, out of the sor- rows of the Gethsemane of our lives shall come the resur- rection of hope fulfilled and sorrows ended. All in the appointed time. city, so that if tho amount collected from the sale of water is excessive, j it t.i least means that less revenue need be collected from other sources. This is not put forward as a justi- fication of the present method so much as to point out that at least we now get the advantage cf the oxcesd. If meters could he installed without cost, all would bo well; hut they can- not ba." Wild ducks are reported to have been seen northwest of Bow Island, and regarded as being the harbinger of spring. Let us trust that this is not a canard. The sunflower was once regarded as an aesthetic flower. In Southern Al- berta it has come to be regarded as distinctly utilitarian. Its cultivation is urged for silos. Sunny Alberta WEED TRAIN. Wf LA 1. A curious stone, weighing twen- ty-four tons, of basaltic porphyry, In Mexico.

Despite Bad Roads Farmers Come to Learn Better Better Farming Methods (From Our Own Correspondent) WHITLA, Feb. large body of representative farmers ot this district were on hand despite the al- most impassable drlfta and muddy roads caused by the prevailing thaw to meet tho "Weed" train when it reached this station at yester- day morning. Addresses covering nearly everything, pertaining to farm- ing in Southern Alberta were made should very properly be the land ofj1'5' several experts, including Mr. the sunflower. fi The controversy over the Island of Yap between the United States and Japan is to be one between the United States and the Allied Powers, In the note forwarded by Secretary Colby of the U.S. Now we shall learn what Craig of Medicine Hat and Supt. Fair- field of the Lethbridge experimental farm. Mr. Craig spoke strongly in favor the trench silo for those who. are at present financially unable to farmer should have one, he said, as It goes a long way toward solving the problem of winter feed for stock.' Highly interesting and instructive were the contents of the car contain- ing the exhibits of bugs, seeds, im proved farm implements draw- ings of the different varieties of nox- ious weeds now menacing the farm- ers in many parts of the three prai- rip provinces. The school children vis- ited the car in a body during the noon recess and were given a very inter- esting course in insect extermination. The "Weed" train left for Bow Is- land, jts next scheduled stop, at p. m. A notice posted in the watting room of the station a short time ago by Station Agent Dooley to the effect that commencing two days hence no agent would he on duty here for train 512, created consternation imong shippers of milk, cream and dressed meat This train is due at Whitla at p. m. Just about this time the farmer is doing his nightly chores and to drop the chore-doing and hitch up and put his produce on the train all by himself-was just a little more than he could convenient- ly chew. Supt. Mackintosh suspended the order, however, pending investiga- tion and it is to be hoped the suspen- sion will be made permac-ent. The ladies of the U. .F. W. A. of Whitla will put on the comedy, "The Old Maids' Convention" at Winnifred Wednesday night next. The cast will be practically the same as that which successfully staged the comedy last winter at Bow Island and Whitla. Mrs. M. L. Dooley, wife of Station Agent Dooley, is slowly recovering from a severe attack of pneumonia. Sam Richardson is agitating strong- ly for a board sidewalk from the old Whitla hotel to the postoffice. Here's hoping you make a go of ft, Sam. It is certainly badly needed as it is al- most impossible after a thaw to walk from the station to the postofflce. Mr. Woods, Dr. Cooke drew a chart bowing Cameron's condition from January, 1919, until the. annual meet- ing on July 31, 1920. From January until May, 1919, Cameron was [n the manic stage and from the fall of 1919 to March, 1920, he was In the depres- sive stage. From April until August 5, 1920, the chart showed rapid changes. Returning to the check again, Dr. Cooke explained that one suggestion In such a mind u Cameron's suggested another, particularly if they rhymed. He testified that It would be Imposs- ibie foV 4 to nob a document M that oheck. Dr. said he had had M opportunity to speak to Cameron In Macleod during the trial and aald Cameron did not remember him. Cameron, Dr. Cooke said, has lost muck weight and Is more nervous than when he law him on August Sth. L ti Other Ixperts At this elate Mr. Woods read let- ters from two specialists, both of whom agreed that Cameron, last fall wai suffering front manic depression anu said he was removed from tho Quolph Institution too soon, "Do you think his mental condition now is intrinsically asked Mr. Woods. "At the time I saw him he was cer- tainly In u depressive state." "Do you think he Is a manic depres- sive "I do." Questioned about Cameron's chan- ces for recovery Dr. Cooke said It depended greatly on his health and also on.whether the stigma of the sub- ject matter of the trial ,13 lifted from his mind. He will bo subject to these attacks all his life. Dr. Cooko placed Cameron in tho definitely insane class in 1919. The Serai had been there long before that. During afternoon session Cam- eron did not sit In the prisoner's dock but was with his lawyers. During the early portion of the morning ses- sion he appeared to be paying great deal of attention to the proceedings but he soon looked as It ho had lost interest.

FAIR AT CARMANGAY THIS YEAR JULY 29-30 (From Our Own Correspondent) CARMANGAY, Feb. fairs association convention at Calgary has fixed the dates of the annual fair in Carmangay for July 29th and 30th. The local agricultural association met on' Tuesday and appointed com- mittees to handle the arrangements for the'fair. The prize as drafted, was revised and many changes and additions made with a view to mak- ing this one of the leading two-day fairs in SoutluTii Alberta. Mr. B. 0. Hummon. the uresident, and Mr. C.

The deliberations as to managerial form of government for the city 1n they progress they ara making, are evidently guided by the motto ot "Slow but sure." In the circumstances, in all that it pertains, this is a wise procedure. The importation of Canadian cattle, says the new Minister of Agriculture of Great Britain, would be a "flea- bite" in tho situation. But the policy of tho embargo is more than a flea- bite as it 13 viewed in Canada, and, apparoutly, by a good number of poo pie in the British Isles. It cannot be said that the people of the United Sta'te.i nre particularly happy over the Fordnny Hill.
