Every session was' largely attended and standing room i was at a premium. Lectures aud demonstrations .on Domestic Science j were given each day at 10 ;;.m.; aud ' I'.ZO p.m., and on Thursday afternoon Supt. Louis of the Women's institute of Alberta spoke to the ladies and thanked them for the support they had given Miss Steven and her assistant Miss Stabler. Miss Grace WooIIey also rendered a solo. At the closing meeting Friday afternoon a vote of thanks was tendered the teachers, Misses Stevens and Stables, . On Thursday evening the officers of the Women's 'Institute entertained' Miss Stevens and Miss Stables' at the house of JVIi'S. j.-^H. Turner. Tea was served and'^a very enjoyable evening a.pent.

P'e impressed those present, with the general all around qualities, that the Clydesdale horses possess and many after hearing his remarks changed their opinion as to which, breed they would rather have. He had a remarkable fine bunch of these animals with him and be allowed those present to pk;k out the horse which most appealed to him and then called upon them' to explain why they, had chosen that part'cular horse. To those who were not familiar with the grading; svs'cm their opin'ons were in nearly all cases incorrect, while those who were familiar with his system of grading were right in- their opinions. His work of the afternoon- was along the sam.3 lines, only differing in the kind of horses used. His talk be'ng centered around the advantages of the Clydesdale mare. At;-3:00 jn the auditorium of the Central school Mr. H. S. Pier*on "f1-dressed a lar(re crowd on the subject of "Diary Work." It had been announced that he would undertake to demohstrato the Babcock method of testing milk. He explained in detail the reason why all farms should jise a Babcock tester, and "his iemarks won many supporters. This was fol*-lowed by..a general talk on dairy., work,'- which?- lasted, for one hour or-' so. It was then announced that th.3 meeting was brought to a close but the crowd refused to leave, and Mr. .Woi'san remained for one' more 'hour answering questions, and again demonstrating the tester. The meeting this afternoon was certainly more than pleasing to the directors of this short course and clearly demonstrated the fact that the farmers of this country are alive to the opportunity that is open for mixed farming. The Domestic Science class under the guidance of Miss Stiven-'and her assistant demonstrated to the ladies of Taber how to make various kinds of cake. Her class. * today was attended by a large number of the school children and more women folk than before. Nothing but praise has been heard regarding these domestic science classes. Mr. Marshall to Speak Frjdayevening Duncan Marshall will speak in the auditorium of the school on a. subject to be solected by himself, which of course will be on agriculture. After the nve8ting he will be banquetted by the executives of the Board of Trade, Agriculture Society, and the Town Council. This banquet will be held in the dining 6s - 61 dairy cattle,- using thajfolatein cattle for the p'jjrpose of ..^iiionstrajting.' The speaker gave a valuable ideas on; the proper method of the herd of cattle present, the anijnal best suited for dairy work. The work of the afternoon was largely along the same line as that of the morning, differing only in the kind of cattle used, for demonstrating, the Ayrshire breed being used. In addition to this, though, was an able address on "Dairy Products-how to take care of the milk, making milk tests, building up a herd, and'the rk- ,; tionB of the dairy oattle."- The meeting of the domestic science closes under the leadership of Miss Stiven is' proving very popular as evinced hy the attendance which-is increasing each day. No rneeting was held in the evening' owing to the fact that the Hon. Duncan Marshall could not arrive - here until Friday night, when the meeting; will be held as advertised. A E London, Jan. 24.-Sir Max Aitken, declaring himself an out-and-out pre-"erentlalist, Including; food taxes, suggests a plan for placing a differential tax on colonial securities. In the last three years, he said, Canada has realized $107,000,000 on bonds in Britain; the United States ,$75,OQ.O,600, and Argentina $50,000,000. There is already a tax of 1 per cent, on these Issues, and Sir Max suggests that the tax on foreign-bonds should be 2 or 3 � per� cent., and only 1 per cent, on colonial bonds. The advantage would accrue directly to' the poofcets of the-colonial tax payers, and as these loans were issued for the carrying, out of public works, the working men would reap tho benefit.
