Caused by tho explosion of a French vessel in the harbor, laden well obtain the consideration of the'answer, and should awaken the cou- Hoapltal Board as to the feasibility of it being made a practical policy in regard to Gait Hospital. The history of what are known as general hospitals is that they have somewhat in not always plac- ing the Interest and welfare ,the patient first. This was sensed by those prominent in the medical pro- sciousness of the general public to the mission higher education performs as an important individual and na- tional asset, in the way it functions. j with munitions, -being run into by vessel of the Belgian Pelief Commis- sion. Over 1500 were killed in-the city, with about injured. The property losses were estimated at 5. In ItilO. by the Dutch. A celebrated stone discovered by a French engineer, M. Bouchard, in 1799. An inscription in Greek on it served as a key to decipher the an- cient Egyptian hieroglyphics: MANKIND AND THE BIG BRAIN In the evolution of modern man stress is wont to be laid on the big fession, and from this the idea of brain as compared with primitive standardization arose. The stand tak-l man. In the evolution brain.pow- en by the medicafprofession on this! er and in the increase of the size of continent is that a hospital is noth- the brain, as it has been accepted by more nor less than a public ser- vice corporation. With this in mind its members are demanding of them- selves and of uospital managements that there shall be at least a mum standard of equipment and vice in all The minimum standard ia laid down to he that physicians and surgeons privileged to practise in the hospital be organized as a definite group or staff; taat, membership on the staff be restricted to physicians and sur- geons who are competent in their re- fields and worthy in charac- ter and in matters ot profeisional ethict; that the staff initiate and, with the approval of the governing board of hospital, adopt rules, regula-i and policies.. Among the rules; etc., it ia laid down that accurate ante complete case records be written for all patients and filed in an accessible manner in the hospital, a case recprd being one, except in an emergency, which includes the per- sonal history, the physical examina- tion, with clinical, pathological, and: X-ray findings when indicated; the working -diagnosis; the treatment, medical and surgical; the medical the condition on discharge with final diagnosis; and, in case of the autopsy findings when available. To 'the- puolic iu general it will -be men such as Darwin and others, the differentiation between man and the animal has been marked. The size ot their brains has been a distinguish- ing feature in leading statesmen of the Bismarck type, whose brain was in point ot size a "record" for modern statesmen. Hence we get an accepted meaning in the words "big brains." The possession of big brains, it now appears, is not a distinct perqui- site of modern man. From the Island of Java comes the prorif that primi- tive man was also endowed with big hraius. Professor Eugene tmbola, of the University of Amsterdam, has re- cently communicated to the -Royal Society of that city an account of fossil remains of man discovered in the island. This throws considerable light on the history of foe human race. Twenty-seven years ago Dr. Dubois startled the scientific circles of Europe by hia discovery in Java of the fossil remains ot the most ape- like of all extinct forms of mankindi which have hitherto come to light. The publication ot a full account by Dr. S. A. Smith, of Sydney Univer- sity, In 1918 of a fossil human skull, found at Talgai, Queensland, again drew Professor Dubois' attention tto the fossil skulls he discovered so long before in Java. They prove to be very like the skulls of Australian blacks, only more robust and massive, this synopsis of what stand- representing, apparently, primitive ardization means, that the general adoption of the policy will mean much. tjt will give them an added confidence in hospital treatment. DISTINGUISHED MEN EDUCATION Under the above caption an article In the Press Bulletin of the Univer- sity of Alberta, quoting figures from a recent bulletin of the United States Bureau of Education, draws the de- duction that the rate at which the student's chances of atttaining dis- tinction increases with each succes- Btep in education, showing clear ly that education becomes increasing- ly effective and economical as the higher stages are reached. In pro- numbers, students the High School portion to who completed courses are to be about 25 times as likely to attain distinction as those who had only elementary. educa- tion: similarly, the university gradu- ate has almost ten times the chance of the student who does not so be- yond the High School. The figures dealt with are the -fol- lowing: With no schooling, of u million men, only 31 attained distinction, or (3.2 per million. With ejomeuiury schooling, of IJ5 million, only 808 attained distinction, or 24.5 per million. With High School education, of ii ancestors of the native stock of Aus- tralia. The discovery throws light on the first arrival of man in Australia. Many previous discoveries have led anthropologists to believe that Aus- tralia was already occupied by man- kind early in the Pleistocene period to the ice-age in Eur- this is the first discovery of past traces of a primitive! Australoid race in the lands lying to the north of Australia. The fossil skull found in Queensland ia also believed to be of Pleistocene age, and, like the an- cient men of Java, has remarkably large jaws. In connection with Professor "Du- bois's discovery there is the equally interesting discovery of what is known as the Boskop skull, discovered in the Transvaal, and now in the South Af- rican Museum. This skull, shown al a recent meeting of the Royal Society, is said to be remarkable for its di- mensions; it contained a brain almost as big as Bismarck's. The inference is very well drawn that .the large brain of fossil man is evidence that the first steps in strug- gljng_.into a hu'man way of living were the most difficult and required an even .greater mental effort than the most intricate of modern inven- tions. With this in mind, there is the thought that perhaps wo take too much Block in crediting ourselves million, attained distinction, with civilization as wo sense it In the 622.5 per million.

The efficiency of central- ized selling was demonstrated by the work of the Wheat Board in selling the 1919 crop, and the inopportune opening of the market last fall brought the Inefficiency of the open' market into such sharp contrast that no one could fail to see the strength of tho one and the .weakness of the other. The inevitable results were dissatis- faction with open selling, and' a de- mand for controlled sell- ing. At the time the Board ceased to operate, wheat had reached the peak of high prices caused by the war. If I miny agricultural products and the the Board had been continued till farmers from actual necessity will large percentage ot the cattle were unsaleable for beef purposes, and as a consequence farmers were forced to go' .uto the winter with more cattle than they otherwise would have doce. The winter being unusually long and severe the loss by death was enorm- ous. Peed reached such an abnormal price that the cost of wintering many of the cattle that survived was great- er than their value after they had taken a summer's grass. Added to the calamity caused by the hard muter and feed famine, was a steady decline in cattle- values. The spring of 1920 was a month later than uaual. Seed and feed were very high. Farm I4bor was scarcer and higher priced than ever before known. Wages continued nnprecedent- ly high until threshing was completed. The crops of grain in most parts of Alberta were very good, but the cost of production had never been so high. As soon as the grain began to go on the market the prices for all kinds began to decline very rapidly. To this distressing situation it would seem no other woe could be added, but one more was possible, and that was add- ed when a 35 per cent, increase in freight rates was wished oh us. Our cup was full. Tho march of reconstruc- tion had begun, and agriculture -was the vanguard. Recovery Will Be Slow Agriculture in Alberta has received a shock from which we cannot reason- ably hope a quick recovery. Tho time it takes to recover will depend very largely on the farmers themselves. All farm products, though produced at an unprecedented cost, have depre- ciated very much in value, and will very probably go to a still lower level, but supplies which they have been buying at unprecedented prices will inevitably Dave to come down in price to the level ot farm products. Agriculture, as the basic industry, is the great economic burden bearer, but there Is a limit to its capacity. When the cost ot production exceeds the price of the product that limit has been reached, and the farmer, from necessity, ceases to be the beat customer In keeping up trade prices. This condition now exists in regard to conditions had become normal, and the buying countries were ready to re- establish open markets, all might have been well, but the market waa prema- turely opened and its weaknasses made glaringly manifest. During the last eighteen, jftpnthh have td practice the most rigid and' systematic economy. They have to reduce their purchases to actual necessities, in order to decrease their expenses to the level of their incomes. If the price, of remains any- where leraJof last season, three things hive become manifest they wlll nJjTC their farm to the the strength of Oneratt0us as near asfpossible to their centralized-' marketing: Second, the weakness of open, or decentralized Third, the 'Indifference' of the government to agricultural inter- ests; Out of this haa grown a determina- tion among the fanners to Overcome the weakness of the open market, and a very clear understanding, thab they will have to accomplish thia own efforts. They want tha-full value of their wheat sold on the market, iu the omical-way. This they believe can be done by pooling it and selling" co-oper- atively. Poo! Is Possible The co-operative npol selliufi.of farm products is not an entirely untried enterprise. This system is being suc- cessfully and satisfactorily operated by the California Fruit 'Growers who have several pools in.operatipnr and through this improved method of sell- ing they have transferred their indus- tries from an unprofitable to a profit- able basis. It is said that many mill- ions of dollars were spent in their ef- forts to get this system established on a practical working basis, before success was finally achieved.' Selling our Canadian wheat through the pool system will' be an Infinitely greater undertaking than that of the California Fruit Growers, but IE they have, developed a pool system-that fa practical, it would sesm that it would not be an impossibility lor ua to 'oper- ate a larger enterprise on the same basis. That there will be great diffi- culties in putting this 'enterprise into successful-operation can not be doubt- ed. Some of the Difficulties There will be difficulties in getting the fanners to sign up the amount ot wheat riecesaary to make the enter- prise practical. There -will be'dlfllcult- ies in building the necessary machin- ery. There will be difficulties in get- ting capable, practical men to operate tho system. Them will he great diffi- culties in forcing the market from ail open competitive basis to a co-opera- tive one; difficulties in financing the enterprise; difficulties in adjUKting present machinery flucfi as local 'ele- vators, to the now system. In fact thin will be by far tho most difficult undertaking that the fanners have ever engaged in, PS it embraces the disestablishment of a long estab- lished system of trading and UIR' sub- stitution for it of an entirely different system. That thin can be done with- out a vigorous protest from the bene- fioiaries of the old system cannot he hoped for. It will bo a lluht between economic principles of trade, with jiil the force: mobilized and llnod up on one side, and unless the forces of the other side arn as systematically1 niobllizijd and Intelligently gnidnd, they oaiinuL hope to succeed. To HUcuead In tliitj-entnr- prise-moaiis tho greatest progress we have nver made, while to fail will hy f-r our greatest set-hack. It is Infinitely' more Important that we start, right than it is that wo in u hurry. A year or even two years de- lay in starting is insignificant if it enables us to make, a'success that "will be perpetual. Economic Conditions The pant year has marked n very decided cluc-sv .V. economic coiiditiosa own force, they .cannot hope to come out even on the production of labor hired at such prices. There is also a rumor that farni' machine prices will be higher this spring than ever. If this is true It will mean another handicap to production, as farmers will be unable to pay evan the pres- ent exorbitant prices for farm equip- ment. Two truths are forced home upon us by prevailing conditions. Rigid Economy The first is the absolute necessity for a more rigid practice of economy. The fact is the farmers are tree spend- ers when they have money and have been as much responsible for the high level of prices as any other class. Had they been more rigid in their practise of systematic economy they 'could have exercised a very considerable in- fluence in holding prices down to a more reasonable level, and would .now bo in a much better position to meet the present situation. More attention must be paid to receipts and expendi- ture, and by more rigid saving even to the point of sacrifice, reserves must be established to meet any possible return of present conditions. In the second place we are shown more clearly than we that in go far as the present situation is duo to false economic conditions and prin- ciples, our hope of ultimate relief can only be found in the consolidation of the Farmers' organizations to a state of utmost efficiency and power and the development of leadership from our own ranks. So far as the present is concerned, we are certainly hard hit. We are in an acute stage of economic sickness, but with proper care we will soon be convalescing, and eventually regain health and vigor. We face the future with hope, hope that we will not only be able to pro- tect ourselves and our industry from impoverishment and ruin, but that we will bo a great force in the establish- ment anil protection of human rights ajijl social well being. This hope never lififore had such companionship with faith. The Farmers' Opportunity With these eternal, well-springs ting- ling through his being, the Alberta farmer turns his face toward a new future, and in that future he sees lualiy things. He sees himself playing the. active part of a citizen. Ho nees opportunity, conflict, conquest, order, opportunity to develop citizenship and make it efficient; conflict with Ignor- ance, greed, and all tho powers of darkness; r-on finest over all obstacles that block the way of progress; order growing out or man's reconciliation to, and hiinnonloufc relationship with, his fellow man.

So with democracy in an orderly up- ward movement, the individuals must come together and organize their strength in small locals. This strength will flow through these channels into larger diitrkt or county organizations, these in turn into still larger provin- cial channels. These into rtue great national rivers of organ lied democ- racy, and these finally into the great tea of world-wide democracy. When this is done the process will be complete. We will have come under obedience to nature's social laws, and nature will be satisfied. The strength of cirilization will be the combined organized strength of the citizens, and the strength of the citizens will be civilization. P. R. Made Hit On the Coast OTTAWA, Jan. Citizen, on its front page this afternoon says: "Proportional representation has scored another triumph. "Victoria, B. C., used the modern system of.Toting for civic elec- and the result has moat gratifying. The proportional repre- sentation society of Ottawa has re- ceived the following telegram from of- ficial sources: 'Proportional municipal election complete success. Returning omcer and staff without previous experience, completed aldermanic count in 14 hours. Spoiled ballots less than five per cent.' "Vancouver also held its civic elec- tions .under proportional representa- tion but a report has not yet been re- ceived. The fact that untried men were able to announov the results within a few hours and that' such a small percentage of ballots were spoil- ed by people who were having their first experience with the F. K. system, gave much gratification to those in- terested." LUCKY STRIKE M.W.A. INSTAL NEW OFFICERS (From Our Own Correspondent) 'LUCKY STRIKE, Jan. 15.

ImUl New Officers (From Our Own Correspondent) VULCAN, Jan. very sad ac- cident, reported in Saturday's' Herald, culminating in the death of James H. White, a firmer residing near En- slgu, occurred sometime durinc the night of January 13th. Deceated was driving home from Vulcan with a team-and buggy, and as he was in the habit of driving with the lines around hit neck with his hands in his pockets, it is supposed that one ot his horses stumbled, jerking the un- fortunate man out of the buggy, or that one of the wheels struck an ob- stacle throwing him out of the rig and breaking his neck. The body was not found until nearly noon the fol- lowing day, vaen if was discovered by Peter MctBtyre of Ensign, lying beside the team having dragged it about a mile. Deceased was' about 56 years of age and unmarried. Coroner McNichol of Lethbridie, conducted an inquest, and the ver- dict of the following jury, was that the deceased came to his death from accidental causes, with no blame at- tached to anyone. Jury empanelled in connection with ths1 case were: W. H. McCutcheon, R. J. McKie, D. H. Miller, H. W. Noel, S. B. Brown and R. E. Simpson. The installation of officers for the coining term in the Oddfellows Lodge, Samaritan No. 91, was held here on Wednesday night. Past Grand L. F. Dawson acted as installing officer, having been invested with authority from the District Deputy Grand Mag- ter. This was considered by old timers one ot tb.e finest installations that has held here: The following officers will conduct the business of the lodge, which is one of the largest and most flourishing in the province: H. C. Jacques, Noble Grand; H. W. Marcellus, V.G.; Percy Irving, recording secretary; E. G. Mc- Pherson, financial secretary; J. W. McDonald, treasurer; T. L. Slming- ton, conductor; C. E. Colwell, chap- lain; John Dewie. the retiring Noble Grand, was installed in the chair of the Past Grand. Alterations and extensions to the Canadian Bank of Commerce building here to the extent of over have recently been completed. These include a much enlarged and more commodious general office, larger vault, fully modern rooms for the staff On the second floor, and complete new furniture and furnishings throughout, together with drilled well, pump, new and the entire builcV.ng re- painted and redecorated. The furnish- ings are of solid oak, and certainly are a great Improvement in the appear- ance of the interior of the building. F. J.
