There is, perhaps,'no poet of � any nation who wrote the story of home and hearth in the spirit Burns did. His. was the native wit and. wisdom which, though oft-tliries requiring a Scotchman only to appreciate, is not entirely lost on the. ordinary. Saxon. Burnsv if possible, has made his count!!* dearer to his countrymen, an^d when tonight they gathers, round to^o0le|irate his annlversary.fand to drink to his: departed spirit, there is around the festive board ^that atmosphere which speaks of home and country^ ; May Scotchmen /long continue to keep his memory green. OUR POINT OF VIEW The Balkan war is disappointing only in so far as it falls to drive the Mahommedans from Europe. Aid. McCambly is dead. The best tribute the city could pay his memory is to keep alive his Industrial policy. Billy Bennett M.P. is a smart fellow in many ways but he spoils his work In parliament with his unruly tongue. He has no control over the little member which too frequently causes trouble. The news that the United Farmers have selected Lethbridge as the next place of meeting is a-source^.pleasure to every, citizen.. The farmers may rest assured of a right royal welcome and all the entertainment the" time of the convention *w'lll permit. ,...-;'.. Bob Rogers' Calgary organ says "reciprocity Is as dead in Canada as Balaam's ass." This by way 0! compliment to the seven hundred farmers in convention in Calgary.

He wrote in a strain which could be appreciated by the people. He was tho poet of nature, a word painter of all that appeals to his countryman... In spite of all his vagaries he has come to be regarded as a "beloved vagabond." Throughout his life tin. spite of adulation, he remained -what he originally was, the peasant ,poet, and without being �puffed up with conceit he gave exemplification 'to what he expressed that "a man's a man for a that."

The "Lathrop Industrial School'^ has been organized for the purpose of educating children over 14 years of age who have reached the fifth grade and find the work of the regular school distasteful. The school proceeds on the theory that in many cases the distaste of these children for school is due to the tact th,at the ordinary studies are not adapted .tp,. their particular needs. Such pupilg frequently appear "backward" oi^lazy, when in reality all they need is; different form of educational activity.,,.Accordingly Lathrop school gives them what is known as "prevo-catlorial",>l$ralalhg. Courses/in bench .woodworking, ..shopdrawlng, pattern making,'printingj carpentry and shop electricity, are provided for.the boys; cooking sewing., millinery , and embroidery for the girls. Classes-plumbing, bricklaying, and concrete work will; be farmed as soon as the deiqand warrants.. '.The academic branches are also taught in Ihis continuation school, But t�ye'are taught in , close relation to the industrial subjects. Arithmetic concerns .the problems of the shop English .consists of practical inBtruc tion in:necessary business forms; no attempt is.made to teach technical grammar.. Geography aq[d history are taught from the commercial standpoint, and local government 1b an important subject. The course is three years. During the first two years the teacher-directs the choice of the pupils, but for the last year each boy is allowed to. select his work, in the -trade he  wishes to learn. This Is about equally divided between. industrial and  academic branches. .-..,..��, Educators are interested in Lathrop Industrial School, not because they believe .in vocational training to _the exclusion of the fundamental subjects but because schools_of this kind are designed to fill the needs > of. a large class of boys and girls to whonrsuffl cient attention has not hitherto been paid; the children whose tastes and aptitudes differ from those presupposed by the usual school curieulum. Work such as that done in the Lathrop school promises to make valuable citizens out of the children who might otherwise ne Hick-Sehl Hardware Co. Phones: 762,1762 618-3rd Avenue South. ;
