Temperance sentiment is far more advanced Ontario, an older pro- than in Alberta, a new pro- yiwoe with much of the free and easy apiiit characteristic of new coun- triitt and yet the license laws here are far more stringent than in the province."

Music as She Is Executed Attending service not long ago in an elegant church edifice where they worship God with taste in a highly aesthetic manner, the choir began that Scriptural poem that compares Solomon with the lilies of the field, somewhat to the former's disadvan- tage.

What the city needs is a good intelligent park commission j with complete powers over the parks and boulevards. Now, one of the men I named was Charles Ealey, and I still maintain that he knows more in a minute about trees, flowers, grass, etc.. than some other people would take a year to work out of their grey matter. There may be need of a salaried park commissioner some time, but not just yet. We can make a wise start by putting several citi- zens who take an interest in this matter of improving the beauty of j the city on a commission to devise ways and means of looking after the parks and boulevards.

Then, when the feelings of the congregation had been harrowed up sufficiently, and our sympathies were all aroused for poor Solomon, whose numerous wiv- es allowed him to go about in such a, fashion, even in that climate, the choir altogether, in a most cool and composed manner, informed us that the idea they intended to convey was that "Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these." These what? So Jong a time had elapsed since they sang of the lilies, that the- thread was entirely lost, and by 'these" one naturally concluded that the choir was designated- Arrayed like "one of We think not, indeed!

In the build- ing permits of last year the Stafford and Bryan Blocks do not- appear. These two buildings are valued at over, thirty thousand dollars, but we do not get the credit for them in the building returns, for the year. Some person was mighty careless in this matter. I ?m also told at least twen- ty-five houses were built in 1908 for which permits were never taken out. It is a safe wager that our building permits went over the half million mark last year. The new building inspector ought to make it clear at the start off that permits must be taken out before a building is started. In the too, permits, in many cases have only covered half and three-quarters of the real value, and that explains why our-permits appear so small alongside Saskatoon, where practically the full value is demanded in each permit. Building permits are an index to a city's development, and are a good advertisement, but in this city the officials do not seem to have realiz- ed that fact.
