If Mayor Hartlle can evolve a cheap power policy and attract industries bete the Herald will boost his candidacy for a conimissionership . with pleasure. Mayor Hardie is n candidate for one of the positions when the city goes under commission rule. His worship can best justify his claim by giving the city good government in this year of grace. J Patronize the LL POWEft-to the Poultry Show, may each'oiie which follows be more popular and more successful thaii.its predecessor. So we shall .-learn to-Vaine' more iully. the virtues 4of the. dpm^estic.hen., , By Icing arooessea of -breeding from ^the oTi^jnaa^bird of the forests, it has come to be. a product of'modern civil-' ization. We have" accustomed it to forget aft th� tradltlon-fe-of its primeval ancestors, in the matter of laying-' veggs and" rearing its brood' We havt �'by artificial processes taught it to .become the purveyor of our wants. ; Eggs, aje a necessary commodity it: , all households, and to increase their Poultry Show supply is a modem day problem. We have done much in this way by relieving the hen of nature's burdens by the introduction of incubators. But this alone is not sufficient, we need- - to- cultivate the breed more for purposes of selection in the best varieties for producing eggs, and to study the modes of feeding and treatment for bringing about the best results. Poultry shows help greatly in-this way by concentrating attention, and directing interest towards the bird which has become a necessity to us all. Let us, fherefore, give the exhibition all' the patronage and encouragement it deserves. In one column the Calgary Herald draws attention to the fa^-t thai R. B. Bennett (the Herait's greatest statesman) warns Canadians that cheap money is a thing of tho past in London and iu another column criticises the provincial government for paying five and a half per cent. Great stuff. and tho Herald doubt* the right of / the C. P. R. under its charter to make j the discrimination. The Toronto papers are engaged sizing upVthe successes of their respective tickets at the municipal elections. The chances are that the papers cut.vtry little figure.. In Toronto the specially colored brand of candidate gets there every time, despite what new'spapers may say. The C. P. R. can hardly afford to be so partial as to permit flax shipments at one point and refuse the same privilege at another. The man who grows flax has as much right to a car as the man who grows wheat, The Medicine Hat newspapers are asking for manufacturers' rates on gas. The Herald believes they should get it if the distribution of wages is the basis upon which manufacturers earn favors. In Lethbridge the Herald distributes between forty and fifty thousand dollars a year in wages, not to mention thousands spent for utilities and supplies. If a manufacturer came to the city tomorrow offering to erect a factory which was to pay out $40,000 annually in wages the city-would be prepared to grant many concessions. The Herald doesn't ask for them but merely wishes to point out that the,value of the paper to the community is not confined to publicity and distributing the news. Light Is Dawning (Morning Alberta'n) The Conservative newspapers of Alberta are beginning to admit that George Lane w.as able to pay an enormous duty and high freight late to the Chicago market and still make much more than if he had sold his stock in Canada. But they did their best to Keep one Alberta rancher from entering that market and making that money. Setting Aside Doubts TO. THOSE who have any doubt, as to the ability of Canada to' buildvb*r pwn ships of .war.the ^following "from" the Canadian Mining :Journal will prove edifying: i- "In Nova'Scotia"the Dominion Steel' � Corporation has an enormous plant. ;!The Nova Scotia Steel and Coal Com-, ; ;pany possesses at Trenton, near New .-. Glasgow, a steel forging plant that represents the last word in modern ^practice. Raw material there is in plenty. Labor is obtainable as needed, The .splendid harbors ,of Sydney and Halifax are commodious enough for any purpose. ' "On the Pacific Coast, 'while the necessary industries have not been 'established, there are abundant sources of 'fuel, flax and ore. In short," Canada possesses, every natural facility for establishing shipbuilding indus-j "tries on ariy* desired scale' ' " �� ' "As for the length o* time in which such industries could be established, ; it is our opinion that, with suitable � direction, not more than five, or at' .' most, ten years would be consumed in 'preliminary work. There is 110 bid-; den mystery in shipbuilding. English and Scotch engineers cojild be engaged to direct the work. Tie-feet" tliat ,for some years the cost;6f ccmstruc-. tlon would be higher here than' in; Great Britain is of no importance whatsoever. The gain ,,of -^Canada would be immeasurably greater than any added expenditure in;' buildfegi Employment would be given to thousands of men, new communities wotil'dij spring up, the Maritime Provinces? would be incalculably benefited, f'njii'j the whole industrial life of the nation-would be strengthened;" The above Bhould, be sufficient to dissipate any apprehension which the least sanguine- ]ampagst us allows ,to linger in bis 'i^fnd'when considering the naval pojjcyv'as 'outlined by Sir WTilfrid' LauTiei�, It is time we had a faith,' fn ourselvejs antLin our resources and the soccer we start in putting it into practice, the better for Canada and.for those who-are proud to call themselves Canadians. . Why' should the day for assuming the responsibilities which go to the making of a- nation be any longer delayed?- So far we have not received a satisfactory reply. Better Make Quite Certain HOWEVER wonderful the advances in the art of surgery and in the-knowledge of medisine rhav-e been in recent years, still we are bound to receive with a grain of salt the tales of wonderful discoveries. The latest has been, the announcement from New York that it Is possible to heal a cutaneous. wound in less than a day, and to repair a broken leg in four days. .....'' This somehow recalls -to- mind the tales of medical students which Dickens so well recounted in the Pick-i wick Papers. Some.. of us, possibly; remember Mr. Jack Hopkins, the student at St. Bartholomew's Hospital; add' � the wonderful Burgical operations which, according to him, took place-in that institution. "Took a boy's leg out of the socket last week-boy ate -five apples and a gingerbread cake-exactly two minutes after it was-all over, boy said he wouldn't lie. there to be made game of and he'd? tell his mother if they didn't begin." "Dear me," said Mr. Pickwick astonished. -"Pooh! that's nothing, . .that.) ain't," said Jack Hopkins. "Is it Bob?", "Nothing at all," replied Mr. Bob-Sawyer. And forthwith ;Mr. HopkinS' proceeded to tell Mr. Pickwick the tale of tbe boy 'who swallowed a necklace p� black wooden beads. The father caught the child up, and ran with him to.the hospital, the beads in the boy's stomach rattling all the way with the jolting; and the people :.lodRl'ngV The only way to kill the Poultry j. Show is to stay away from it. . �Vj.. Therersi.Sii.a flne collection of binds ^'at the1'Poultry Shotf.

Genius and Marriage "The married life of a genius is usually unhappy-so is that of his wife." The speaker was Miss Helen Gould, who was discussing marriage In general. "To be the wife of a genius is bad," she said, "but to be the husband of one is much worse. At a muslcale I heard a lady say: " 'Who is that man with the soft-bosomed shirt and Windsor tie?' " 'He is the husband of the wonderful contralto, Vlvavoce,' her companion answered. ': 'Yes,' said' the other, 'but >vho was he before his marriage?' "-Washing, ton Star.
