The president, ./. F. Fowler, in his oi o.iin^ address, reviewed the progress of education in the province sinco the convention of last year. Trior to too. 1905, there were 601 school districts in tho province. On JXicembor 31st, 1900, there 'were 745, and at present itho number has increased to 893, or an increase of about fifty per cent, in two years. The character of the school buildings and the standard of the teachers has also made corresponding progress. Nino hundred and twenty-four teachers were employed in 1907, of �lum 280 were males and 644 females. of such inspection would be that pa-reivts would send their ch ldren to school with more confidence. ft would also raise the general standard of health by removing tho harmful physical conditions under which many children suffer, such as defec-tivi) eyesight, physical weakness, etc. Some schools are the happy hunting grounds as lice, itch, etc., and medical inspection would take the respon slbillty of dealing with such cases off the shoulders, of the teachor. One child afflicted with tubcrcolnsis might infect the whole school. RESOLUTION ON' MBRCIAL IN- ... SriuCTION, On motion of lir. Ferris, seconded by Dr. Johnston the following resolution was adopted: "That in tho opinion of the school trustees of Alberta there should in the earliest possible moment be appointed by each of RURAL SCHOOL PROBLEMS The discussion of "Rural School school board a medical inspector Problems" occupied the attention of the sohools under its control, the convention during the entire ses- "That his duties should consist in sjon the overseeinpc of the sanitary arrange Tho first paper was read by P.

Tho advantages of the yearly-school over the school which was open only for a portion of tho year school children; in the reporting to 'tho board of all cases of disease found among them nm! in tho advising of the parents or guardian of any pathological condition found in any wore that it would attract more ehi'd and of tho best means of having good teachers from tho east and it would also develop more and better teachers from tho schools of Alberta. ORNAMENTATION OF PREMISES SCHOOL J. F. Boyce, U.A., of Red.Door, fol lowed with a paper on "Ornamentation of School Promises," which lie he'.ieved was of mora importance in rural districts than in the cities. He considered that the school house should ho tlK3 cleanest and neatest building in the district. Many homes in which teachers were forced to board woro very unattractive and for this reason if for , no other, the school room should bo made attractive, the school room clean and the grounds neat. Pictures on tho wall ateo help to relievo the gloom. He strongly advised boards to secure ample grounds when districts were first organized. the matter properly attended to. SECONDARY EDUCATlOtf Tho next address was by J. McCaig B. A. L. L. 1)., superintendent of schools, Edmonton, on "Secondary Education," which ho said is only so cond to that of primary education. In 1905 the total enrolment of stu dents at the high schools of the province was 580; in 1906 this number has increased to 781, or about rfO per cent. As yet the enrollment of the high schools was only about per cent. of that of the public schools. The high schools nave in thi) mis' been most concerned about themak- pression on tho national life, and the great events which have occurred should bo thoroughly studied. They should be taught that tho man who endeavored to give his country bet-' tor laws is no less a patriot than he who defends his country in timo of war. The system of war under which they llvo should be taught, beginning from the government of tho school district and leading up to that of the ompire. Tho national emblem should bo in dVcry school, and the children should bo taught what, tho flag stands for. Mr. Bryan also advocated the singing and study of our national songs. In them the pupils will find expros-sionsof patriotism of tho highest order, which will tend to national stability. LEADER WANTS TO KNOW J. Rebtrtaon Asking Questions of . The Cabinet Ministers ing of teachers. Mr. McCaig consider-This could be done by keeping ^ that thp course of studies should be simplified so that a pupil who wished to take a commercial course could tako up stenography and typewriting as well as bookkeeping end arithmetic. A better system of teaching agriculture must also be devised. He ad vocatbd higher co)legi�.t� institutes an.i frae secondary or high schools. PATRIOTISM TO THE PUBLIC SCHOOLS RESOLUTIONS PASSED At the conclusion of Mr. Boyce's address the following resolutions were passed:- (1) That tho government should col lect all arrears of> taxes after the close of the year for which they arc due- Edmonton, Jan. 34.-A. J. Robertson, the leader of the Opposition has placed the following questions on the order paper: Of Hon. Mr. Rutherford he would ask what sums of money had been paid the Edmonton Bulletin last year and the policy of fne government with regard to printing and the sums of money paid to' papers and printing offices in Alberta for printing in the last year? Of Hon. Mr. Cross he would esk whether J. B. Walker was appointed official assignee by the government, when and where he was appointed, if sufficiently bonded, if he is an absconder or fugitive,from justice, what efforts have been made by tho government to apprehend him, what were his defalcations, was a detective employed-to trace him and when was the government advised of his defalcations ? Of Hon. Mr. Cushing he would ask if a site for a court house in Edmonton had been purchased for $27,000, with whom they negotiated for this property, when the deal was put through, what department of the government handled tho transaction, if the government was aware that immediately proceeding this sale the original owner sold this property to certain individuals for 17,000, whose names have not transpired in any document of record in any public office. It tho government has reason to believe that such persons were enabled by their direct or indirect connection with the government to derive information whereby they secured j the difference or profit between $27,-000 and $17,000, and if in the opinion of the government this purchase at $27,000 was advantageous to the government and the people of the province? FARM TOPICS POULTRY PICKINGS Hens kept in flocks of thirty, or forty, with about two males, produce the best results. The floor of your poultry house should be higher than the surrounding ground. The axe is a good remedy for many of the egg-eating hens. It kills the hen, but it also kills the habit. If you are making a business of raising poultry, keep the males by themselves except during the breeding season. A feed of rice, either cooked or raw, makes a good change for poultry, both old and yuung. Walls and ceilings must be kept clean. The ceilings must be constructed that dust and dirt therefrom ahull not readily fall to the floor or into tine-milk. Stables must be whitewashed at least once a year. The water used in the barn and for washing milk utensils must be free MAQOON RECALLED "The teaching of patriotism in the.1 Governor of Cuba Asked to.
