Those in country's voting strength is not made up of organization Tories or organization Liberals, but of men from new-lands, who have not affiliated witb any party, and they are going to vote as they deem host in their own interests, and' invariably they will support reciprocity. Even those who do not find in reciprocity all they desire in tariff relief, could find no attraction in Mr. Borden's policy, for the Conservative leader, in addition to his determined opposition to reciprocity, nailed the flag of the mast. The Western farmer wants tariff reduction and he sees plainly that he cannot expect anything of the kind from Mr. Borden. Reciprocity is a step in that direction, and he is going to support it- more determinedly �o since he has heard the Conservative apostle of protection. Ontario's Cry for Rain (Toronto Telegram.)

Our future as a coal mining centre cannot bo Imagined, hut \va Logic of a Political Emergency (Xew York Trlb�ne.) Some of our statesmen at Wnsh-ington who have been enlarging on the calamity which w-111 overtake the American farmer If tie Canadian reciprocity agreement is put into effect have much to learn before they become finished, all-round prophets of disaster. The expert who can teach them Is the Hon. R. L. Borden, a member of the Canadian Parliament and the leader of the Conservative party in that body, who has been making a trip through Western Canada, trying to persuade the /armors of that region that they have nothing to gain from the free entry of their products into the American market. According to Mr. Borden there is ho long end to the bargain, but only two short ends. . . According to all known laws of exchange, even In-cludiitg those of horse-dealing, it is Impos'sible for both sides to get the worst of it in a bargain. They must either break even or one of them secures an advantage. But Mr. Borden rises superior to the resttdctions of mathematics and economics. According to his calculations, each party to a trade can give more and receive less. Both must Quit losers, although there is no rake-off, Ouf anti-reciprocity debaters have not mastered that sort of "fourth dimension logic. Mr. Borden's speeches show what wonders can he done with it in a political emergency. UNCONVENTIONALITIES (Chlcngo Tribune.)

"I'm not going to thank you, sir, for giving mo your scat; you ought to have offered it to me half an hour ago." "I'd be wtlUng to marry you, Mr. Snnigglos, perhnjis. if mother wotild quit egging me on." "'.\u revolr,' means 'till wo meet) igaln,' .doesn't If. Mrs. Wecrius? Tlien, I'll simply say good-night."

When a man is cornered it doesn't necessarily mean that he is square. Happiness is the only sandpaper that makes life smooth.

HARRY LAUDER AS COAL MINER prosperous busineP3 durins the coming year. Considering the ]mor crop last year and the closing of the mines this sprlaj.. Letbbriilgo has stood tbo trial well. I.Ast year's crop failure would not have been as" serious had the country pocn more settletl. In .^ new countr.- a crop failure is a serious ::ci 'jac'.;; in an older country they froi'.icntly happen, but are no', as noticeable in thelv effort ujmn husincEo. Even as it was, conditions remained ?urprisingly good here throur^bout the year. I.,ethhri(!'.'r.'s future is assured. Other towns and cities are having booms, on the strength of probabilities. .>:uch as divisional points and car shops, but l.eth'aridge'.s growth is B.toadv and souiul. We have around ug a vast agriculturnl country, and only a vpry xmall nan of it is ynl under cuUivalion. Willi the acreage increasing at il-.o rate it did this year, our woalih in agricullurc alone wlU advance by leaps and hounds. While otlif-r cities can bo;ist of do know that two large mines in the vicinity, the I.pthhrldge Collieries and the Chinook will soon be mining as much coal alone as is now being mined by the mines at present operating. What does that mean to us? It means a great population to feed and I'lolbo, and big outputs of coal to transport. What will follow? .Nowi wholesale houses, and later factories, and more railroads. With th'� railroads will come the opening, not only of new coal mines, but the opening of nev-. farming districts, the creation of new towns, and then the o-s-tal>li�hnient of more wholesale houses and f:ictories here. A great future is certain. .V city with the twofold resources-coal and agriculture-that l.ethnridgc possesses, is bound to become \ big cllstrib-titing and a large industrial centre. Car shops and divisional points a-loiie cannot make a city. Thorp is no need to worry about I.othbridgo. ^Just for a J oke*' Agricultural Item (Pittsburg Post.)

"Whenever you want a job, here is the man to apply,to," said Mr. Mas-terman, Home Office Under Secretary, yesterday, at the House ol Com, nions, as he introduced Mr. Harry Lauder, comedian and cx-niincr, to the chief inspector ot mines.

Mr. Lauder, who -wore a lounge suit, a bowler, and pince-nez, paid a visit to the public gallery, and said afterwards he had enjoyed himself very much. He had had three laughs in half an hour, and thought that pretty Rood. Hp was not (juite sure what it was all about ; hut the Members laughed, so he laushed too.
