'.Magruth, Jan. 17.-Today was the last day of the Magrath short course school, and the final sessions were an exception to the rule set by previous meetings. Good crowds attended the lectures and the final competitions created a great deal of interest ami enthusiasm. The students were put through a severe, examination in the judging of horses and dairy cattle. Gold medals were awarded to the winners of highest honors in both departments, and silver medals for the second best, papers. In the horse class D. P. Woodruff took the gold medal, and James Meldrum the silver one. C. H. Dudley and Melvin Godfrey were the successful competitors for the medals for dairy cattle. The awards were popular, and were greeted with prolonged applause. The winners were all local men. This morning sheep and hogs were discussed at the Agricultural school. Charley Sindlinger, a well known breeder, brought in a nice pen of Du-roc Jerseys, and they were scored by the students. C. E. Lewis led in the hog discussion, and declared that Mr. Sindllnger's animals were some of the first of the strain in the Province. Some excellent types of sheep were shown and the good and bad points deliberated upon by- the professors and students.

WATSON DEFINES It is of the Heart Not Creed  Endorsed by Congregation When is a man chargeable with huresy? That question formed the topic of Rev. A. C. Watson's sermon at the Bijou Theatre last night, when ho disclaimed any heretical tendencies, and refused to resign the pastorate of the First Baptist'church. The sermon was the outcome of the charges of heresy preferred by a portion of the members of his congregation at a business meeting last week, when he was asked to hand in his resignation. "I have been accused of preaching heresy," he taid in attacking his subject, "HereBy under the acid test." "That is no new thing," he continued. "Men have been accused of heresy all down the ages. But I have no objection of being accused of heresy not so much as being attacked by a vicious dog at night. "It has also been said that I am afraid of standing trial on the charge. That is one of the reasons why I am going to refuse to resign my pastorate at the business meeting following this service." The minister then weiit on to show Lhat he was not trying to defend himself to save his job, and for this purpose showed that before accepting the pastorate of his congregation here, he hnd been offered the chair of philosophy in a largo California college, and also in his alma mater. At one time he had held a position as advertising manager on a paper. That position 'was worth $5000 per year to him. He had taught in Brandon college and in McMaster, and had made a 'success of teaching. The job was not therefore the reason for defending his work here. Near the close of his sermon he scored those who oppose him in this controversy and who claim that he is not only guilty of heresy, but also of being too worldly. He showed that "keeping oneself unsullied from the world", now is accepted in a different sense now than when Puritanism was rampant, following upon the medieval a-ges when religion was a thing of form, not of the heart. He had been accused of being partial to the theatre, of countenancing dancing and condoning card playing.' He had no qualms of being judged on these matters along present-day religious standards. Orthodoxy vs Heresy was the theme of the body of his sermon, in which he set up the standards of the orthodoxy of the 20th century. Taking his text from ihe defiritions of James and St. Paul, he applied them to the thought of modern times, and in the end proved conclusively that religion is not a thing of form and teaching but is of the heart and is manifested in one's deeds. James has- said, "Pure religion and undeflled before God and the Father is this, to visit the fatherless and the widows in their affliction and to keep oneself unspotted from the world." And St. Paul says: "And now there abide faith, hope and love, and the greatest of these is love." The minister went on to say that Emerson and Arminius are quoted from every pulpit in the land> and their teachings are taken today as orthodox. But in their own times they were rated rank heretics. The ideas change with the times. Heresy is the opposite of orthodoxy, and orthodoxy is the religion accepted by the majority. Religion is not a thing of definitions and speech, but rather of motives. Behind motives there must be hope and love. These instigate faith. The faith of many forms a creed, which is institutionalized in his heart are the basis of his belief, and he is a heretic only as those motives are contrary to the generally accepted beliefs of the day. It is the duty of the church every once in a while to examine its 'creed and re-interpret it in the thought and ideas of the day. And what is the authority by which orthodoxy may be judged? It is the supreme moral force of nineteen centuries of Christ's teachings-the last authority, and before that authority we must bo'w. "And so I claim to be orthodox, to believe in the religion of James and Paul. For there can be only one orthodoxy-that of the heart and will. A man must be judged by the motives in his heart." At a meeting of the members of the congregation held after the service, Mr. Watson was unanimously endorsed. He decided not to Tesign, as it would not tend at present to heal the breach in the congregation.

CROSSED THE President of Old Timers in Edmonton is Entitled to Honors Edmonton, Alta., Jan. 18.-W. G. Ib-botson, a native of the Province of Quebec, born in Montreal in 1851, who has just become secretary of the Edmonton Old Timers' Association, of which he was once president, crossed the plains in an ox cart in 1876. He earned his first dollar in the west by panning gold from the sand bars of the Saskatchewan river, afterward engaging in fur trading, which he followed until 1891, when he entered the service of Ross Brothers as super-viser and general manager of their trading operations as far north as the Peace and Mackenzie rivers. Mr. Ibbotson was educated in the public schools of Montreal and McGill high school, afterward going to England. While in London he accepted the offer of a position on a coffee plantation in India, which he declined later on account of the famine In the Orient. He sailed for America in 1876, going later to Winnipeg where he outfitted-an ox cart for the far west. From Edmonton he made nam, erous trips to the Hinterland, going as far north as Fort Rae. It was a dramatic moment for the little party of traders, of which Mr. Ibbotson w�s the leader, when they came upon the remains of the last camp built by the members of Sir John A. Franklin's party. The traders could easily picture the last struggles of the gallant sailors as they abandoned their ship near the shores of the Arctic sea and hauled timbers for their fort. From Fort Rae to the Barren Lands is 150 miles, and then they had hauled their loads some distance across the Barren Lands. The chimney and sides of the primitive building stood there, near a grove' of trees like an island of refuge in a shelterless sea, a mute testimony to the indomitable British pluck  which had sustained these explorers of.the early days. � - -i A Hazardous Trip �� �.: Another trip was of importance from the trader's point of view, but so heavy was the price paid that it was a miracle any of the>party. are alive today to tell the tale.
