Most of the colleges of agriculture were educating the boys away from the farm. There was too much science and thebiy taught, and too little attention paid to practical work. It is he poilcy. of the Alberta depart-ment'of Agriculture to preach the gospel of the land, as the most attractive business-in existence, and there are evidences on vry hand that succas is following that policy. Ontario Farrnera in Retrograde nfty or sixty per cent of the farms in Ontario are In retrograde over their status of twenty years ago. Why? Because the farm boys don't know their business. They have been left, a farm by their . hard-working fathers, and thelr'only aim'Tis to eke out an existence, with the hope of leaving the mortgage to'someone else, as it 'was left to them. The boys have been educated to get up at 5 a.m., get out and feed. the pigs and calves, and work till ten at night. A calf to them was a stupid sort of an animal with four legs and an Insatiable appetite for milk, ^f it .dlgd, the boy would have'jto dig a hole-for it to be buried In, arid that: was f his only reason for keeping It' alive. If it was sold, he never saw any of the proceeds, so why should he have any interest in livestock? There is not a boy living but who has,an inborn desire to own something rrllve-^to care for and feed It, and cairit his own, and the ne.xt generation in Alberta will have a better heritage than that described if the present system of education is permitted to continue. Teach the Glrl8,*Too -And the education of the farm girls is important, and is receiving jiist asmuch attention as that of the boys: The majority of the children attending these schools are going to be farmers or farmers' wives, all their lives. The only real pleasure in life, after all, is one's work. The provincial schools of agriculture aim to give the �farm boys and girts, the right I'vlevr-point of the things they have to do on the farm during their lifetime. Many of the "out-of-works" are men wbo, as boys, left the farm for a Job ;In the country store, and who have been 'working, for a salary ever since, supporting a-wife and family, dreading each' day that the boss would come along and say they .were no longer ,neede4. AVhat would these men give i-indw^ftoifoIa-interestins and greatly appreciated lay the huge audi,-ence, : : , Mr. Harcourt was'especially pleased to see so many^^arm wom^n .present, '"lihey put'up with rhore/liard-ship than the men," he said, "and are due all honor. Jhey^ ihaij^ problems In the home as any man has on the land." - � ' 1.' . .-v The EmpIre's,,Gr'ahary '. ,Mr. Harcourt's add'ress wks'.largely patriotic. The call to'those men who cannot go to. tl^e fro^t.'tbineis particularly to th^vfarmer.;; Hehas' got to prove that Cahada is'.in truth the'Em pire's granary. I^^ydr'iwas "this j?Vot-inces in better �sh^pe''to do its toare. More'land is ready for seeding tlian ever before, and the outlook for good prices is certain. "While the � call '^.onie's-t-for more grain;-'-said Mr. Hai-court,;"don't Jet us spread ours.eIv:es^,afl4 Put in more than 'TCe can put in right. And don't let us rush into new things for which we are not equipped." "Good prices will prevail for -evdry-jola'ss of -farm produce for years 'to come, although some of them seem to have been demoralized. The call for horses -will be urgent, and even after the war, the demand for draught animals will tend to keep the price up, , Cattle will be high in price. The war has increased the demand, and the � aawly is smaller than ever. Thera^are-more people dnd fewer cattle in the United-States now than there were ten years ago. The hog market, while demoralized at the present time, will'"rise.. The demand for mutton aiA wool'iB.'increas-Ing, and the prices Sir those products will remain at topr-oiotoh.. Mr. Harcourt urged the p^|duc.tipn, of more livestock, and, like the ^Minister, believes that it is the ionly wa'y to keep the boy on the farm. 'He also emphasized the value of biillding a rea'l home on the land, as being conducive to more contentment and happiness for the farmer's wife and children. Let the farmer get-his living'Out of the garden and cellar Instead of from the store, by raising vegetables and small fruits. Musical numbers were rendered by Miss Bicker and Mrs. Roebuck^ and a very profitable aTi'l enjoyable evening 'was brought to a 'close by the singing of the National .iVnthem. Mr. F. Rockafellow made a very efficient ^chairman. With Major Stewart, Captain Ripley, Captain MoMlllon. Lieutenants McLel-land and Mewbuiii,. and Mayor Jflardlo, he WRlked quickly along the^ linesi' passing pleasant remarks to the bojrs in kliakl. asking, nfter their comfort ahd welfare. ' '' 1 Owing to the low temperature, the Major-Genera-l did not addreBs-the soldiers, saving his remarks for ihe'eV' ening. ' Talks to Repot^ter During the journey hack to the city, the JVIajor-General told the Heraia reporter that he was highly'^leaseja.with the new quarters, and not at all sorry that the troops had been allowed to remain In training in Lethbridge. '�Who will be the officers of the.bat tery?" he -was asked. The provisional sppointraents will be confirmed," he replied. . ; * "What do you think of the Lethbridge municipal railway," was the ne.\t Interrogation. The best part about It is that the cars are well heated," he replied. The Major-General continued to chat with the reception committee, some of whom are well known to him, ex-Ald. Williamson claiming the 'Major-Gener-Bl as a superior officer in a 'Lindsay regiment. The Lethbridge Hotel was' the next stop. ' At the Banquet The two long lines of tables, with a crosapiece at the head, which extended down the length of the dining room at the Lethbridge HotM, had every chair occupied by a large and representative gathering which had assembled at the banquet to do honor to the distlngushed and gallant gu^st who paid Lethbridge a flying visit last evening. The function was presided over by Maj-br Hardie, who had on his right Major-General Hughes, and on his left Colonel Oruikshanks. Men of both political parties were present to welcome the Minister of. Mtlltia, the Federal House being represented by W. A. Buchanan, 5I.P., and the provln-oial House by Major Stewart, M.P.P. The officers of the battery in service uniform. Captain Ripley, Lieuts. Mc-Lelland and Me'wbum, and Chaplain Rev. Canon MoMillen, together : with Superintendent Wilson and Inspector Lindsay of the R.N.W.M.P., gave the appropriate touch of military color to the occasion. Polishing Off the Eenemy Ea,ch serviette held a favor for the guests in the shape.of a. small.Ualon Jack, w.hlch gave a'distlrictlve decorative effect to the weli set-out tables. The menu was well an'aiiged, and, as befitted the times, Turkey In the flesh was dmolished, and-Germany scrunched in the sauerkraut which asserted Itself in the salad, 'while Austria was made away with in the delicate' Viennese pastry of the pies. The General Speaks Owing to the fact that tl\e mask meeting was timed ior 8.30, the banquet was gone thi'bugh with military dispatch, and not much tltne was occupied over speeches, Major-General Hughes confining OUmself to a brief reply in response to his toas^, proposed by the Mayor. He excused himself for having to make a hurried visit, owing to the fact that he had to be shortly at Ottawa, "together," he continued, "with my friell,d Buchanan, whomi should like to.have numbered with my military forces, though I have no hope of adding him to my political Only One "BROMO QUININE" Whenever you feel a cold coming'on, think of the full name, LAXATIVE BROMO QUININE.

Drag ft'pbewicy, ones-" The Minister of Militia went on to speak of drill halls. He said'that it was intended to place one � in Lethbridge, but the available site was not large enough. It was then proposed to build a small one, similar to the one at Moose Jaw. Cbuslder'atlons, however, were broken off through the war, but he hoped that when it -was over a city of this distinction would have a suitab'le drill ball. He would not take up time in ' dealing" with the war, as he would he going- fully into the subject later at - Wesley church. He trusted that rains' ana snow would give the Lethbridge district an abunjiant harvest, and that frost 'would stay away until the crop was garnered. "The West has had a bad crop; but," he facetiously remarked, "judging from the well-groomed and prosperous appearance of the present company, I think Lethbridge could very well stand another year or two of crop failure." The Mass Meeting Fifteen hundred people heard Major-General Hughes in -Wesley church. He came, they saw and he conquered. He was applauded to the echo at intervals during his address, ana at the close '�as given three hearty cheers. He traced the history of the present war from the seizure of Schleswig-Holatein, and step by step showed that the one desire of the Austro-German alllaiice was to rule aW the w.a'^es and all the land in the universe uniier the domination of the Kaiser. He cited the German signiflcaitice of the opening of the Kiel canal'" The Kaiser had it figured out t^at this event, in providing two entianoes Into the Baltic from the tiforth Sea, would reduce the ,Btrriins power of Britain's navy 50 per cent. "However," be continued, 'Britain seems to be doing fairly 'will with her navy. All ou/ boys wan)/ Is to get a crack at thorn." / Garmanyy^lanned her own time for the oponl^ of hostilities. The Allies wS-i'6�'�M''i;repared, and the real fight will not commence until spring. The British and French soldiers showed their true colors in their forced retirement on Paris. The odds were 40 and BO to one against them; but it takes the best type of soldier to fight an uphill game, and the British fell back with such credit that the Germans today dread and fear them.
