A Canadian Heroine THIS WEEK, there will be unveil- ed monument -erected in memory of Laura Secord, the 'heroine ot the -War ol 1812. No more genuine act of heroism was ev- er'recorded than hers, and no tribute could be made to a more deserving national hero. The annals of Canad- ian history, will always have a place for the story of the brave deed done by this pioneer farmer's wife, who, becoming aware of the (plans of the American invader walked many miles through the in the black- ness of a stormy uight, to warn the British troops of the impending dan- ger. The result was that, Instead o: .being surprised and the British troops were able to surprise and capture the invaders. It was a brave deed done at great risk, which can. only be properly appreciated bj 'those who-are familiar with the con ditions that existed in the forest wilds of Ontario in those early days Her1 deed was typical of the spirit that animated the lives of the wo- men of those times and indicates the devotion to King and country exer- cised by them. The erection of the monument is a fitting, though tardy, tribute not only to the heroism ot Laiya Secord, but also to the pion- Nationalist Attacks on Laurier SOME IDEA of the-nature "of the campaign that is being waged in Quebec ty the Nationalist- Conservative-.combination can be gained froin extracts taken from the report of the meeting at Nicolet, Que., as published by the Montreal Star, B-Conservative Journal. Here are a sentences taken from the re- port: Mr. Albert Sevingy, former Con- servative through 8ir Wilfrid Laurier has sold to England. The rights of the French language and the Catholic church have been trampled upon, and the pro vince of Quebec betrayed. Paquet, ConseVvative '3E. P. for protest against any step that would compel Canadians to in the fights.of England for the oppression of weaker countries. The'sum of ?2 paid to postmasters for enlisting recruits for the navy is blood-money. Mr. Mantel, Conservative M. P. for has.no use for a. tin especially when it is in- tended for all the fair and unfair atruggles of England. iMrf Armand Lavergne, Mr. Bouras- sa's is a traitor to his'race and creed.. What Liberal in. Quebec has ever appealed to .the supposed.'-N'atipnalists' sentiment of the people'Of Quebec by Blictuexpressions? Theee are the men with .whom the Conservatives, who make such loud proclamations of their Joyalty and thair Imperialism, look for support in the fight against Laurier. No more objectionable appeal to race prejudice could.be made, yet these men are in the folds of the party that claims the monopoly of the Imperialistic senti- ment of tlie country. An appeal to the people of -Quebec will show, it is confidently expected, that there, is no feeling'-in Quebec to which such speeches wilt appeal. It will be found that the Imperial attitude tak- en by the Prime Minister will he re- presentative'of the sentiment of the ipeople of French Canada. It is the duty of the ultra-loyal Conservatives, from H. L; Borden down, to repudiate their, colleagues who make such state- ments as those quoted above. Why the Canadian Reciprocity T' HE average Canadian farmer is of Agriculture shows cattle in favor ot reciprocity. He has not gone to Ottay.'a protest- ing against the measure, as the'Am- erican farmer 'has gone to Washing- ton. Except with the .hidebound par- tisan, the reciprocity measure is warmly welcomed and endorsed by the 'Canadian agriculturist. .The farm er on this Bide of the line has reasons for his faW in this measure, and his Best case was put forward to Mr. Borden at Brandon .In these para- graphs "We have Inform our- selves as to its effect on present and prospective conditions, and the capa- bilities ot both Canada and the Un- ited States with regard .to production and consumption of foodstuffs, and we find that while the lines of pro- duction and consumption of foodstuffs are rapidly converging in the Un- ited States, these lines are rapidly widening in Canada. "In the year 189S the total acre- age of wheat, corn, oats, barley, and rye sown .in.the United States was and the exports of .that crop were bushels. In 1907, nine years' later, the acreage under these grains was or an increase in acreage of 22 per cent. But the exports in these gralni thtt year were only bush- ell, a decrease in nine years, notwith- standing the increased acreage under crop of 69 per cent., showing how rap- idly-home consumption of these grmlns .was overtaking their produc- But it might be said that this 'in tU6 export of grftlll ,waa owing to its .being fed to atoek and exported In the form of bnf and pork."

In 190S the number had increased to UOO, an increase of 81 per cent. The exports of cattle had decreased 14 per cent. In 1899 the number of swine on United States.farms was in 1908.the number had increased to an increase of 45 per cent. But notwithstanding -the large In- crease in production the exports ot pork and Its products showed a fall- ing off of pounds. Dur- ing the same period; the _ number of cows, increased 34 per cent., while the exports of butter and cheese down from pounds to less than pounds, and the Im- ports of, butter and cheese increased from 10.000.000.to pounds, an increase of'232 per cent., showing that the consumption of butter and the United States had out- grown: the production of these com- modities, and that it was .necessary to import in order to meet home con- sumption.; The United States Bureau ot Statistics, 1939, shows a falling off as compared with the_ previous year in the exports, of beef'of ,35 per cent., ot-'pork. and its products of-15 per grain 29 per falling off'in one year.- 1 "During all. these years In which consumption, of foodstuffs, .has been overtaking -the .United titates .was bringing new land- under cultivation.

Where is sho going to send her large production of other com- modities' Shall we Veftise the mar ket offered by of the of people right at our doors open market, which will In a short time be'tin market In thi world for our surplus Oui tradti with the United Slates irinttt o.r tlmii our all other coun -Lail year.lt was greater by over than our trade with Urltalu, notwithstanding the preference' given Britain In our tariff, and that trade has been in- creasing from year to year in faco of a hostile tariff which makei It lew profitable to all engaged In It. This trado with the United States, In view of the conditions. already staled, wfll expand immensely, why should that great open market .now offered us be refused? The whole range of his- tory furnishes no' example where tho offer of such a market under such condition! was refused by any na- tion." The Canadian .farmer certainly has good reason to want reciprocity. OUR POINT OF VIEW Swat the fly- Spud tho .weeds. -Make Lethbriclge a spotless town. With such an array ot legal lumin- aries in the city, there should be no difficulty In deciding whether tho C. P. R. shops belong to Taber, Medicine Hat or Calgary. Judging by the roasts Perloy is re ceivlng from the press on his Bor- den. tour, he's haying a jewel of a time, as the sweet girl graduate would say. Editor Davidson, of the Calgary Al- Oertan, has gone on a trip to Eng- land. He deserves the vacation, and no man wili get more benefit In mind and body than he who wields the able pen on the Calgary daily. The G. T. P. will build a big hotel :n the Jasper Park reserve, and it will not be long until some railroad is building a hotel at1 the Waterton Lakes. They can't pass that beauti- nl spot by ..very long. The Macleod school teachers are to have their salaries raised. No doubt hey will be able to withstand the ihock, and pay off a few of the. Bur- )lus bills contracted while they were working for love of the profession. Dominion Day is past and gone nee more, and there will be no more olidays for two whole .month-s.' Af- er'siich a'feast ot'holidays, as we ave had lately, It will seem hard to et; down to the greasy grind ,once lore; but such is life. Oats showing a growth of twenty- four Inches In six weeks on dry land Is just another exhibition of what can be done in Sunny Southern Alberta when the crops are given half a chance. Blame last year's dry'sea- son to Halley's comet, and you have explained the puzzle. They say that when those Dalmores Scotchmen stood -by and saw that stream of burning- Scotch whiskey Mowing, into Cromarty Kirth, they wept tears ot bitter, anguish that so many "wee drappies1' were going to waste with dry throats to be quench- ed. The holidays are on and something should be done to revive the interest in. the public playgrounds. This is a very important matter, and one which should not be ajlowed to drop, es- pecially when so many children are looking for some place to spend the long days. One of the Calgary papers In a lengthy artlcle'bewallc the poor tele- phone service which they are receiv- ing In that attributes the falling off in efficiency to the fact that so many, of: girls are getting married.. Evidently the girls ant a so will "lav down the switch 'and take up the broom. Ti.ev are not in OuJ tario these days, but it won't be half, so torrid as the tho small hojs across the line are having today, A couple of thousand, fingers, a few less eies, and half a dozen million dollar losses b> fire wjlV be sacrificed on the altar of patriotUrh, and Independ- ence Day will appropriately cele- brated for one more year. i i Here is the opportunity for a workingman to get a building site in (ho heart of tho prosperous North Wnrd.
