The visit is looked to as sonelhlng ot Importance, and In this its value has been rightly sensed. There is much that members of the Fourth Estate, comprised In the asso- elation, can do in the way of publicity In which Canada and the province of Alberta will stand to gain. Ths grant made by the Provincial j Government is for the benefit of tho whole province. It therefore remains that every portion of the province, in relation to Its particular centres, sftls the benefit which is presumed will accrue from tbe editorial visit. The visit to Alberta should not bth countries and. for tho. Empire a whole. It promotes a fellow feel- g and creates a widening of kuow- dge. Acting and the staging of plays have ecome a fine art In Great Britain, and nothing is considered finished nless the smallest detail is given sominenco to. A therefore, blch has had the tect nr.d hall mark t popularity may be reckoned as ono 'Orth going to. The very exacting ttention given to details, in aiming I Ihe absolutely correct, makes the at- at such plays part of a lib- ral education, as It is reckoned in real Ttritain, and companies in plays 'f this description have .their, added to that of giving pleasure. It emalns for the people of Lelhbriuge o ensure that they get the best lhat s going In the way of rational amuse' ment by showing their willingness to patronize tli6 auino by the liberal sup- jort accorded. It, we can all agree in saying, will be .worth while. Lumbermen say prices will bo high- er. No doubt buildings will he lower to make up for It being covered during this terrific cofd weather.
