Of the number exam- ined were found free from disease of any kind, and have one or more of the diseases shown ir. the list attached. That-is to say, some 45 per cent of the children, ex- were affected by disease of more less serious type.' of the medical profession of this city, your committee recommended that steps should be taken to at once or- ganize such systematic medical in- spection, making provision for, (a) The'periodic examination of all school children with a view to detect- ing disease or unsanitary conditions, The prompt exclusion of all children, affected by communicable dis- ease. (c) Some efficient agency by which) the significance of conditions -revealed by medical inspection may be im- pressed" upon parents, so that suit- able action may be taken. (For this purpose, a health visitor who should be a qualified nurse, seems to be tie most suitable agentl) (d) The influencing of all school conditions and work so that they may be in accord with the laws of sound, hygiene. (e) The keeping of such records tHat all information may be available- at such time for the purpose of any par- ticular case, and also as data for future development or modification of the" system. After the reading of this report Dr. G-albraith said he had. not received the books on the question that had been previously mentioned but that no doubt these would be forthcoming in a week or two when he would read them and give a short resume on the works to the Board who would then arrange a system of medical inspec- tion.

The deputation was given a consid- erate hearing. Mr. O'Donoghue cited the C. P.

The North Ward has increased its This condition corresponds very population during the past year at a more rapid rate than other parts of the city. To meet the -expansion of this part of the city as a residen- tial district, several places of busi- ness have been opened up during -the past PHONE 289 closely to those that similar exam- inations have shown to exist in -all the larger cities in Canada and the United States. The existence of such conditions both in cities of this con- tinent and in European communities has given rise to a very general de- mand for systematic inspection' of schools. In England this demand found expression ia one of the pro1 visions of the Education Act of 1907 which makes it a duty of the local education authority to provide for the medical inspection children immed- iately before or at the time of, or as soon, as possible after, their admis- sion to a public elementary school, and on such other occasions as the Board of Education may direct." This Act further gives power to the local education authority to make ar- rangement for attending to the health building. and physical condition of the children I J. Simrn months. Ail of these re- port that the venture is more than meeting expectations. The pioneer of these places of busi- ness is J. M. Eeding's grocery store. This store has long proved a Conven- ience for the north Ward people. Last summer Johnston Bros, open- ed a second grocery and since then have continually been adding to their stock. S. M.

Mr. James Eae occupied .the chair. Mr. Cook was the first speaker. He explained that the purpose of the Government in arranging for these meetings was so .the poultry men might meet and talk things over. It was the desire to have free discussion rather than lectures. He made a couple cf im- portant announcements regarding the intentions of the Alberta Government in regard to keeping eggs and breed- ing stock for sale, and also in regard to prizes up to to be donated to any organization holding a poul- try show. While Alberta did well at thought' Albertans should strive for better breeding stock. Any interested in poultry, and de- siring information regarding poultry or organization of poultry associa- tions, should correspond with Mr. Foley, poultry superintendent, Ed- monton. While Ontario' exhibited 850' birds at the Dominion Fair, still Alberta birds beat in every class exhibited in. The second speaker dealt_jvlth in- cubation, fattening and marketing. During the discussion it. was report- ed that hens, are now laying in the Hat, in spite of1 the cold But during hot weather one of the speakers recommended a type o! nest box: and roost, so as to overcome the pest of red mites.

Thei aim, and scope of medical in- spection is well-defined, in the lan- guage of a memorandum of the Eng- lish Board of Education, issued, just after the passage of the act referred to, as follows, Board desire, therefore, at the outset, toj empha- size that this new legislation aims not merely at a physical or-anthrop- ometric survey or at a record of de- fects disclosed by medical inspection, but at the physical improvement, of coming generations. The broad re- quirements of a healthy life are com- paratively few and elementary, but they are essential, and should not he regarded as applicable' only to the case of the rich. In point of fact, if rightly administered, the new en- actment is economical in the .best sense of the word. Its jurisdiction is not to bo measured in the-terms of money, but in the decrease of sick- ness and incapacity among children, and in the ultimate decrease of ineffi- ciency and poverty in after life aris- ing from physical disabilities. ...It seems clear that any step that improves the general health of the pupils, increases their power to learn, and thus promotes the immediate purpose of .the school, while any mea- sure looking to'the increase of the ef- ficiency of the individual as a. member of society is justified on precisely the same ground as is public education. In consideration then, of the condi- tions as they exist the fact that after long investigation and by the advice of the best medical op- inion, other communities are meeting similar conditions by systematic med- ical inspection, and that such inspec- tion has received the strong approval also does shoe repairing at-his residence and his daughters do high class dressmaking. About two months ago, Mrs. Doug- las opened a dry goods store with a stock principally consisting of ladies' and wear and draperies. One is surprised at the amount and variety of the stock when compared with, the size of the building. Mrs. Douglas and her capable assistant have built up a substantial trade xvhich is steadily increasing. A couple of weeks ago, Ed. Log- gin, of Milk Eiver, opened a meat market and is finding that the North Warders are great meat eaters. J. McKnight is renewing acquaintanc- es and assisting Mr. Loggia to get settled. Prospects in the butcher's trade look so bright that J. M. Red- ing wfll erect another shop up in a few weeks. S. H. Keyes, formerly with S. Kean in this city and J. M. Phipps, of Cardston, have their bakery about completed and will have good things in the eating line in their shop on Saturday. Both are men of wide ex- perience in their trade so the "peo- ple of the North Ward will know where to get delicious and. nutritious viands for their tables. A.
