URGE CROWDS IN ATTENDANCE TABER SHORT COURSE SCHOOL o Demonstrations and Lectures Being Followed with Interest by the Farmers '.. (Special(to The Herald) Taber, Jan-' 21.-The second day of the short/course school opened this morning with everything- looking favorable. The high wind, which Jiad heeni-rkghvg-the previous day, had �n-Urel^subijided,-and-with a Chinook hlowiiig.'.the-weather was many degrees ; warmer.,-' .- Ixmg before .the hour of ten, the peopfe'wire ^gathering at the exhibition-giWnbX'and'promptly at tea the lecture -onPefcheron hcrses began. To say. that'it> was interesting and instructive-would he putting it mildly, and judging from expressions of op- : Iniosa heard from various farmers the lecture-was all that could be. desired. Several head, of horses were on exhibition, during the morning's speech and' these aroused no little interest. ��Jit 1.30; W..rJ. Elliot, superintendent'of the Canadian.Pacific Railway's demonstration farms at Strath more, took'chan'ge of,the meeting, and had for hte sub&ot Beef Cattle -which., proved to be one of the most . interesting-subjects on the courBe. Mr. Elliot is a speaker of no small ability,, and. in. a. ooa-cise. and compre- . hensive manner pointed out the good ; and; bad qualities'of the various types of cattle now hi Alberta. He exriflaiaed the system under which, cattle may be graded, and  to illustrate his case graded one of the  shorthorn cattle there. He then had each person make a grade ou any one cf the remaining shorthorn cattle present. This aroused great interest, CURE KIDNEYS AND RHEUMATISM DISAPPEARS GIN PILLS PstThings Right Get rid of YOUR Rheumatism for good by talsing that, reliable remedy, GIN PILLS.

It was' with no little regret that the afternoon meeting was brought to a close and [adjourned until 8.00, when the subject of Dairy Work was taken up. This subject was handled iu a very able maimer by Mr. H. S. Peirson. who dealt particularly on the subject of milk, its products, how it should be handled, and how to successfully market it. Many valuable hints and information were conveyed to the hearers of this lecture. The next speaker of the' evening was Mr. George \V, Scott, who spoke on the Dairy Herd He said that he believed in getting a herd of superior quality to those now in use in the majority of places in Alberta. But it would not be wise to purchase at the start fancy dairy stuff, but to simply start 'with au ordinary herd, and by a prec-fHs of elimination weed out the poor, and in that manner a good herd could soon be established at considerably less than the cost of a fancy-priced herd. Many expressions of approval were heard from farmers present, and it wa-s apparent that his remarks had the full endorsement of his hearers. Mr. Scott was followed by .Mr. E. J. Cook, on the subject of Poultry Mr.. Cook dealt with the poultry question in, general, pointing out the various qualities in the different breeds, leaving his hearers to form their own-opinions as to which strain of birds were best suited to their owu individual wants. He threw out some valuable hints in regard to housing the fowls, and perhaps the most valuable of all his suggestions was that re marketing of fowls. He said that it had always been the practice of all farmers to market the majority of their fowls around Christmas time, and as. a result there was a congestion on the market, and a consequent lowering of  poultry prices. To remedy this,- he suggested that the flock be divided, into different pens, and to fatten one pen for a period of twenty-oue days, and then market, it, and so on that there would be no congestion at any .one period of the year. Domestic Science This subject is proving one of the most popular subjects that the course has to offer, inasmuch as it is of vital l interest to- both men and women. In the morning Miss Stephens and her; assistant gave many useful hints and | 'demonstrations in the basement of � the new .Knox Church. I A still larger crowd greeted her on Iter return in the afternoon, and judg--ing by expressions heard, the ladies are more than pleased with the instructions they ate receiving. It had been announced that Duncan Marshal would be present on Wednesday night. Air. Marshall is forced to cancel that engagement, and instead will appear on Friday night, when lie will lecture at the Central School auditorium, . The subject which will be taken up tomoivow will be dairy cattle. It is expected that a record-breaking crowd will be in attendance, provided the weather continues to be fine. . The First Day Taber, -'Jan. 20.-It was .with-great disappointment that the farmers of this community were compelled to wait a day longer before the opening of the short It hadr=b,een planned to . hold the meetings'.a large tent, .but. owing to the -high wind and snow storm, which was Wg-ing all day, it was impossible to erect the tent/, The wind quieted down somew'hat |in the afternpon,>and it thought/that the tent can>b'e .erected on Tuesday^ with no diffignlty. However, if:thTg is; iiBpos'siblei;iaijt meetings will be held'in the schoo'ultouse-. Tomorrow (Tuesday) the following subjects ; will be dealt-'witb:'';'PercHer-on horses, beef' cattle 'and ^poultry. The work of this day being taken up on the next day's programme. In the Domestic Science department there was little doing, owing to the fact that Miss Stephens missed her train, and did not reach the city until late in the afternoon. It is ex pected that, the attendance in this c;ass will outnumber the class recently held at Magrath, as there were many ladies on hand, despite the ele ments. It has been announced tbat Duncan Marshall would be present on Wed nesday night, but owing to an unexpected engagement, the Minister will not be able to be here until Friday, when he will speak on the various subjects outlined. He will be accompanied by George Harcourt, deputy minister of agriculture, and Dr. Terry. It is more than gratifying to the management of this course that so many farmers are on hand to be in attendance at. these meetings, and it is expected that the number will increase with each day. At present all hotel accommodation is exhausted. WINNIFRED Winnifred, Jan. 21.-Mr. Stockdale, former agent at this station, returned last Friday irom visiting iriends for a month. Things look good for a bumper crop here this year. There sure will be plenty of moisture' next spring to slant litem. Each day always a little snow. Mr. Cook is back lo his old job running the Medicine Hat Milling Co. elevator at this point. A bunch of machine men left last Saturday night for Calgary, where t hey will attend the engineering school 0/ the M. Rumely ("0. "for three .weeks. We will all be glad when we get the farmers' lines of telephone, around here. We could easily gel three hundred signatures for them, besides every business man in the town would take one.

L>0.--While be did not feel at liberty to discuss the probable outcome of the Alberta and Great Waterways railway case, in which he recently; appeared as counsel in the hearing of the appeal before the Judicial Committee ot the Privy Council, H. H.fc Hyndman, of Edmonton, who ias just returned home from a stay of, a month in England, had no hesitancy in giving his impression of the OUl Country and its people. The simplicity with which the mem. bers of the Judicial Committee of the highest tribunal of Great Britain carries on its work, Mr. Hyndman said, is as accentuated as is the import of the weighty matters argued before that body. In the how famous Alberta and Great Waterways Railway case, it was notable that arguing in behalf of the Royal -Bank, in whose name the appeal was taken, appeared SIt Robert Finlay, K.C., M.P., the one man, who with a turn of thb wheel of politics, would replace Lord Chancellor Haldane, the highest official in the goyernment of Great Britain, in the chancellorship, and who would then preside over .the august tribune before^ which he had presented his argument. . � Mr. Hyndman casually referred to some of the humanities which make the men who preside over the legal destinies of great hopes and big causes, all the more interesting to those who know the jurists only from this distance. The three lords of appeal sitting with the ;;Lord Chancellor are great lawyers-their reputation1 does not have to be discussed. There is Lord McNaughton, the oldest member of the committee. He has been on the judicial committee probably twenty years or more. He is universally known to be wonderfully erudite in constitutional "questions. The British North America Act, as it stands, is understood to owe a lot of its. present form to Lord McNaughton. He sits behind the table at which these law lords adjudicate, seldom speaking, seemingly listlessly indifferent; but, as any barrister practising before the Privy Council knows, this octogenarian knows as much, if not more, about.the case claiming his notice than almost any other man. Then there is LoTd Moultoiv a great name in Nonconformist circles in England. He perceives the point at which counsel is endeavoring to ar. rive long before counsel has said enough to outline it, either to his own satisfaction, or to the perception of any one else hi the room. Lord Moul-ton questions, clarifies, enlarges, qualifies. He is possessed of a wonderful brain. ''"�-.' The fourth member of the Judicial Committee mentioned by Mr. Hyndman is Lord Atkinson, also a great lawyer. He has all the eloquence which would be associated with a lord of appeal who gained his forensic honors in Ireland, although as he sits in the. Privy Council eloquence is as naught, where-1'actB alone are tolerated. There was another prominent'flg-ure in that gathering of whom Mr. Hyndman might convey impressions which would have interest for people everywhere iu the British Empire. This is Sir Robert Finlay. : He: is one of the present day great lawyers in the British courts. He passes from one court to another, and even hastened away from arguing, the^Alberta and Great Waterway's: apiiea!vb�l6,re the Privy Council to 'ehgage';;tj}?'a-"dl-voree case with international!:'interests, lie has been attoftiey-generiil in a British government, *and\-a�*MT. Hyndman recalled, should the .turn, of the wheel of politics in Great Britain put another government ?into.'''power he undoubtedly - would become Lord Chancellor. ' _ .' . . Here is a man known throughout the British Empire for ins. legal tal: cuts, who slums electric 1 bells, and prefers candles to electric. 1'ights.'Mr.' Hyndman was present at-the consultations between Mr. Bennett, Mr. Moss, K.C., of Toronto, and Sir Robert. It was getting on to four o'clock', when the dusk gets nigh to darkness in London.
