What makes a good rnanv people hesitate about pulling-'up stakes in well settled country, and setting out to -make a home for themselves in' new one, is ihe fear that the chances of their children to make their-way in. the world will be im- paired -by the inadequate education which -they mil receive. To those wfed have a-proper sense of their re- sponsibility, it is a matter of quite as much-concern what the education- al facilities are, as what the chances of, acquiring a long bank account arei The man "who is anxious on this point is the most desirable citizen we -can. have and it has been the aim of the provincial government of Al- ,berta. to do everything in its power to .satisfy him. .Where distances are great" and set- Jtera -are scattered the task is no i small one. In the cities, towns and Tillages, we see school buildings of ra substantiality that awaken sur- pzise and admiration on. the part of every stranger. This is also true oi 'tile districts where the land ,has -been taken up and cultivated for a 'considerable length, of time. But outside of these, where there are only a. few children in a wide stretch, of country, it is only by the most lib- eral aid and encouragement on the part of the government that this need can be met. To show how well the department of education has discharg- ed its duty it is only necessary to point out that when -the province ,-was established there were 52 schools existence, while there are now over a thousand. "vln other parts of the continent the system in vogue has been very justly criticized on the ground .ihat too much, attention was given each department to those pupils 'who- intended to go further. The -public school education was too much, in the nature of merely a pre- paration for that given in the sec- "ondary schools, and that in the lat- ter, for a course in the University. Those who only wanted a public school-training the great bulk of the children, and those who wished to stop at the end of the next stage 'were 'neglected for the few who de- sired to go on to take a degree. This "IB -undoubtedly a very real defect in "the educational arrangements of many .-states and provinces. From the first ithe government of Alberta nas been "determined to avoid it. It has made the public school the main object of consideration and nas steadily 'aimed at preserving as its first, and its most important function, the giving of complete ele- mentary instruction to those whom of life compel to com- "-meh'ce the earning of their own. liv- %jf at-an early-age, and whose only is bound to be the not- one of hard experience. -p'fifich" a p0ucy fully in keeping fwith conditions in a new land.

LETHBRIDGE, AGENT. who feel that they would de- rive a very considerable advantage from a higher education, and who would consider it a great hardship if they were deprived of this, because of the distance which they would have to travel to other parts of the continent to obtain what they desire. If a man is well to do he can easily stand this additional expense for his sons and daughters, but university students are not drawn, as a rule, from the wealthy classes from those who believe that they can im- their material position by tak- ing such a course. By all such, even so modest an institution as that which Alberta can now lay claim to is heartily welcomed, and it is not likely that: anyone will object to their re- alizing their desire when we can al- low them to, without sacrificing to any degree the vital requirements of the mass of oar citizens. By a great many, University edu- cation is considered an impracticable sort' of affair, -which unfits rather than fits a man for taking his part- in the workaday world. As carried out in some places this is undoubtedly true. But those vrho are directing the University or Alberta have set- out to avoid- such a result. The prac- tical side of every course will be emphasized. It is to serve as the basis for technical schools, which will undoubtedly in a large variety of ways, promote the material growth of the province. From it will go forth men and women exception- ally well qualified to take over tho work of instruction in the lower branches of educational system.- The members of the staff will be able 10 act in an advisory capacity to many public bodies which have to face questions from "time to time re- quiring expert opinion. As an in- stance the professor of engineering has already been called upon several times to give advice on .different en- gineering problems, and should be able to save municipalities a great deal of expense which has been in- curred in the past through deciding with but imperfect information upon a certain line oi policy. But it is not necessary to justify the establishment of an institu- tion wholly by the material advantage that is to be derived from it. While we believe that the creation of a large measure of material prosperity is the first task before the people and t! e government oi Alberta, and that with it other things will be speedily added, we must recognize that it is not the whole of life, and that even in the early stages of our develop- ment it is well to lay the basis for broad intellectual growth. The great thing is to apportion the expenditure oi public money according to the pressing character of the various needs that arise, and in doing this, the average man who examines its record carefully and without preju- dice, will be prepared to admit the government of Alberta has shown un- usually good judgment.

"I the Speaker said, "lad- ies were admitted to the body' of the House until a certain lady would not withdraw when notice was taken, that, strangers were present, and it took three hours to clear her out. She was a very celebrated professional beauty of the name of Mrs. Musters, and members crowded around her and protected her for three hours. After that they determined they would not let any more ladies .in again. The only place the ladies had to liew the proceedings in. the old chamber was through, the ventilating shaft at tae top of the old St. Stephen's Hall- There was a sort of balcony where the ladies sat or-stood; they could hear the debate, and just catch sight of the members' heads below." This continued up to the fire of 1834. The incident of Mrs. Musters seems to have taken place in 1778. The speaker also stated that there is only one room, in. the Clock Tower where art offender can. be confined and this room will accommodate only one. HOW EARL OF GRANARD GOT CABINET POSITION Practical Joke of Which He Was the Victim Resulted First in His Ap- pointment as Lord-in-Waiting and Later as London, Jan. World hears an interesting story of the Earl ol jS-ranard. When the, late Sir Henry Gampbell-Bannerman was called upon to form Ms government J the Scots Guards, of which Tie is "a 'captain, to chaff him, got some friends in London to send the Earl of Granard a telegram in Banner- man's name inviting- him to call at the premier's house in Belgrave square. But when he- called there He was informed by the premier's secretary that ihe premier could see callers only by special appointment. Granard thereupon produced the telegram, which the secretary took in to Bannerman, called'it a forg- ery. However; .he" saw Granard, and seeing that Granaxd took so "pleas- antly the cruel joke" perpetrated on him, offered place of lord-in- waiting, and Granard accepted. Granard's brother officers were more surprised than' Granard when they heard the result'of When the important post, of master 01 horse became vacant the King se- lected him from a list.of three sub- mitted by the premier. -----AN ARDCNT-SPORTSMAN-'- M.
