The buncombe which appeared in this morning's paper about the street car tie-up, particularly in North Lethbridge, revealed such an Absolute ignorance of the agtual conditions as to cause intense"" amusement, if it. were not that the tendency of-the article yas such as to seriously reflect on tfie city. . The talk about an "inch of snow" i -blocking the '.cars is absurd. � The -saw- was over a foot deep in places and Bjacked Jiard with the wind. All that was necessary was for the arm chair" critics* of the street railway ;ftTa-aagejnent to take a walk over and , see: for themselves. - ( There.\iB nb-doflbt that the city will tiavq to invest In a sweeper,- even thoughi there "be winters in which it will, not be"called into service � twice, Enough money has been lost this year through not;- having one; to pay for it. ' lethbrldge street car service 1b not yet six months old, and despite the knocking of� the know-lt-all critics, the Herald has' no, hesitation in saying �that-there-is no system, for its size, on the 'North American continent, that can surpass it. The School of Domestic Science WE HAVE HEARD it stated that the poor housekeeper who struggles all day with her work and. then �fs never -done, or the ono who sits down in the middle of it, top discouraged to go on is not to blame. It is the school system which teaches her how to classify a rose, and solve a, mathematical problem, but does not give.her any training in the work to which,.in the majority of cases in our Western country, she, must devote herself for most of her life. , ' - . . . r . This is certainly a reproof to our modem educational methods, and-at the same time serves as a.commendation-for the inauguration of : the *cn"6ol of -Domestic Science' in Leth-brld^p. Qn.the meciiy of utility the scheme.commends Itself, and even if some of; those who go through the instruction wUl" have no need for .putting'ft into"-practice later on, still the knowledge' gained cannot but be of value, and will come in handy at a pinch when circumstances, render it necessary; ? It does not follow that because do-jme'st'crBciencQ is taught other branches of: "ordinary education will be riegiecteii ^with regard to girls. They also liaVe^thelf uses from an intellectual jpoiht, an.d. in tha. persuance of tiera there is much gain, if we are to;1)eUeve that" the race can never go higner* than "the women. ' Therefore, in combining the practical "With the useful the school authorities' have selected a happy com-imssWOftvootitaining -in it all the ingredients o! ^education on common-sense. HneSi-.; � i � � Giving It a'QiiiejSls f'HE ' ATTEJMPT to tax food in �prekf Britain and ingeniously, to place the onus of the dls-itCBteful proposition on the Dominions, has been ; happily squelched. It is sincerely; to'be trusted that the idea now fpfever thrust into oblivion, and'will never be resurrected as a - scheme of-practical-politics. ' 'If any arguments are needed to has- ten the' happy despatch of a polfcy ^vh'ich only needed its appearance in the-light of'day to compel it to seek foT itself the'fate which awaited it, /these.are afforded by those.of Lord i-AsYeharj"/, better known _as Sir John -.-.^Lubbock.

OUR POINT OF VIEW There is still a lot of wheat in'the country and at the price paid It does not pay to ship it out, From: a .great mapy standpoints the most important convention ,of the year is in progress in Calgary-the United Farmers of Alberta. What glory is there in being a British cabinet minister when a man has to have a drove of detectives shadowing him constantly to protect his life from viragoes; The following is from the Leth--bridge Morning News:, "Several business men have requested the council to allow the "point" to remain open, as they stated .that their businesses had shown a,- falling off since It was Closed/' : - \ :- Calgary city council will submit the question of single tax to the ratepayers for instructions. That is the principle of the referendum and is sound policy. Calgary meanwhile making no mistake |n adopting single tax.-~.The opposition comes from the big.landed proprietors. , Calgary council was asked by-R"! B*. Bennett to reject single tax neeause It would result in over butldtngc Oh! you building returns. ....... Taber is this week enjoying' the 'benefits' of "the short bourse1 schoof in agriculture.
