VALUE OF POETRY IN EDUCA T1ON THE VAULE of poetry in educa- tion was the subject ol KB. inter- esting and instructive address recently given by Prof. Peterson, of University, in which he gave some facts that should be taken into consideration by some students, es- pecially boys and young men, who do not "see the use" of studying poetry. The. average boy attending school thinks that poetry is not practical en- ough for him and fails to see the cul- tural and educational value of it. If properly used, the professor said, ..poetry'became an educational agent oE the most important kind. It help- ed greatly in thl -battle for good Eng- lish; it cutivated the imagination and proved a mental and moral stimu lus. The English of this continen was often very" faulty, but poetry im proved of the student and taught discrimination words. As the work in the use o of the poets trowned on corruptions of language it taught the beauty and value of ele rated speech. Its effect upon the im agination' was most beneficial, stirr ing to life such emotions as glee, af rection, reverence and awe. Poetr not only inspired beautiful thought and beautiful language, .but it broad- ened and deepened the spiritual na- ture. It Drought home very vividly to the mind the nobility of certain attri- butes in a man's character. A Wriggler (Victoria Times.) A wriggler is one who wriggles. Une who wriggles is a person who shifts his position continually. This deiinition for the benefit of whomso ever it may concern. Noisy Names (Chicago Trloune.)

If Lethbridge is going to be left out of tbe professional baseball leagu this year, steps should be taken to get a real good amateur league going am- ong the 'best towns within a hundred miles or so of this city. The Board of Trade in the towns around Lethbridge are already get- ting ready for the season's work. They are a live bunch o! towns, and the ttoards of Trade will boost thc-ni a- long right lines. Alliterative Editorials (UiareshoLm Review.) The Calgary Herald has a standing alliterative editorial as follows: "SIFTON, SECRECY AND SORROW" These .alliterative editorials .arej corkers. They make thousands of' votes for the them, espec- ially among the well read classes. Soon some grit paper will be out with something like the following: MlCHBXfelK, MCSH AND MEDIOC- RITY.

MacLeod Freeman THE GRANTING OF RAILWAY CHARTERS SOME DAYS AGO a move was made in the Senate to have leg- .islation passed to change the method of granting railway charters. It was pointed out that 6ver two hun- dred charters have been granted by FariiainentBinder the authority of pri- va'te -bills, besides the charters taken out hy: the companies build- ing in Canada. Of these only tweuty- tnree had done any building. A good many have been granted an extension of time, while others have been, ior- leited. There is necessity for some'change some place. It is true that many railway charters are secured noth- ing short of fraudulent purpose's. Sometimes they are used to secure mouRT- tlie unsuspecting by sell- ing the charter to tbo'se'who-find out later that the railway is not a feasible .proposition; Sometimes a .charter Is secured for a railway in order that ating fictitious values for farm-land, and booming town and city real es- tate. This works harm for everybody, except those on the inside who em- brace the opportunity to sell a lot of property at a handsome profit. But the boom they have created works an] injury to the whole community. There should be some way of ob- .viating these.unfortunate circumstan- ces, and still be perfectly fair to the legitimate railway promoters and builders. It might be that the Rail- way' Commission, as suggested, could jwnen an application is made for a charter, find out whether a railway in the place named, would be a business proposition, or necessary for colonfta- tlori purposes, or justified in. any way, the company is financially able to carry, out the project, and if it is not interfering with the rights of seise other company which -already has a charter.

He then obtained a position in the well-known j bouse of Messrs. C. Meetings and Co., 'of HolbornhUl, and afterwards started tin business brother, the late i Mr. T. R. Roberts, in quite a small way in, Upper-street, Islington, where he remained for seven years. He then set up business on his. own account at Stratford .with a staff oi only four as: sistants. This business became so successful that, in 1394, when he disposed of it for cash to a .limited company., tho number of hands -employed on the premises was 500.
