All those who braved the extreme cold on Monday night to hear Charles lkmnison Kollo?g at Wesley Church were amply repaid. Every -one was delighted, especially the crowd of school children, who were held spuH-bound as tho lecturer entertained them with reproductions ol tne bird songs, their culls, and whittles. Mr. Kellogg threw ttplcn -dW pictures of birds on the canvass and told of their songs and lives. He gave graphic descriptions of his adventures in trying to see the blrda his adventures at Bitd Is'and in tho CJulf of St. Lawrcnco being very tltrtlllng. Throughout the lecture was a deep spiritual thought and a slncerltythul made tho lecturer's wddivsa more than a msre entt'rtalniiwnt. Mr. Kellogg Is one of tho greatest teachers of"man's humanity to the animal "worW, and of the doctrine of the underjftanding of Uod through not -ure.*- Mr. ICellogg found a responsive chord in many hearts as ho gave scene* and descriptions of John Burroughs, who has many admirers hone, and also by the Nova Scotia semes to gave. There is no doubt that this lecture is the greatest ever given In Loth-bridge, and few will expect to hear 'A better. Thj Lyceum committee Ih 4o be congratulated on securing Buoh lecturer on its course. often, said the sinker, wv think that if four walls are put together we have a school house. Wo must educate also the aesthetic side of our nature The walls should Ix? hung with pictures, reproductions of the great masters, which will elevate and refine. The school grounds should he large enough to supply room, not enly for ploy and recreation, but also for trees and .Uvls of flowers. Beautiful grounds will help, not only the children, but tho entire community as well. The government, said the speaker,  should appoint nn officer to mo that their plans are carried, and that the schools are well constructed upon scientific principles, as to heating, lighting and ventilation.  An animated discussion followed ; this address. Several trustees who j took part spoke in favor of the free j dom of the trustees, and .objected to j too much paternalism by our govern- i meat supervision should bo limited . to the providing of plans and suggestions. This sentiment seemed to find favor with tho majority of the convention who thought that a school boatd should hive intelligence enough to erect their school house. A. M. Scott. E�'J. of Calgary gaVe an address on "Compulsory attendance," and "The Truancy Act." Its ooject, he said, is not merely to keep pupils in our schools, but also to prevent buys and gir.'s from growing up in ignorance and to reduce thu numlier of illiterates 'n our j Misted of a province. Mr. Scott dealt chiefly with the conditions in city schools as they had come under his own observation in Calgary- The age of compulsory attend ince in towns and cities t-hould he from 7 to 11. instead of from 7 to 12. The period of attendance should Ijo the whole term, instead of 8 consecutive weeks, an I Id weeks for the year as In tho present Truancy Act. Tho burden of proof as to age i ^ should be placed upon tho parent. IhipllH who have completed standard four of our school course, under certain circumstance*, might, with tho consent of the superintendent, be allowed to remain at home. Parents, instead of l>ciiig simply fined, sliou'd Ih! reauired to enter into l>onilH for two or three hundred dollars, that they will obey tho law. Private schools should I e required to satisfy an educational expert us to their ellkicncy. Sometimes sickness is given as an oxcuso when the children nru running about the streets. In the opinion of the speaker, a medical certificate should l.e required. Police powers hh .ulrl bo given Tru-unt olTicors, and thiiso powers should bo more clearly dunned. Employers 'of labor, who hire children of school age, should liable to pay a fine. Thu act should define hal-itual truants. Tho government should invos-Ifeato tho conditions of parental and industrial schools in the eastern provinces, with a vi�w to tho founding of some such school in Alberta- Burns, but above nil, won the !
