OUR PCiNT OF VIEW At the Women's Congress in to the sQci'.'iy columns of the news- papers came in for severe criticisms. As a matter of fact some of them are very slushy.

Dan McGillicuddy knighted Super- intendent of Immigration Scott and though the title doesn't find its way into the official chronicle of peers and kaighu> it is not out ol place- to re- mark that a heap worse men have been knighted than W.

There was a young married man on the train, who had a great idea of his own im- portance and knowledge. As we were standing in the vestibule of the ear, he noted these quaint, bare trees, and said to a mau near him: 'Say, what do they do with this hemlock bark "The man replied: 'They use it for tan bark. It is shipped in great quan titles. 'Those Indians must be great climbers.' replied the young man, 'but it beats me how the deuce can strip the bark off those trees, clean to the top.' "And then he wondered why ev- erybody laughed." Car of i On track K To-day L. Reinecke. Grassy Tugharn. Bow F. Werts. the satisfaction of the Public Works Department.

What do you to 'agricultural education expresses himself strongly in favor of the sep- aration of the agricultural college from that for cultural arts and in- dustrial sciences. In support of this proposition he advances the following very good rea- sons: (1st) Where agriculture is of suf- ficient importance ii. a state to war- rant the establishment, of a strong experiment station agricultural school, the cause is of sufficient size to engage the attention of an entire faculty of specialists, not only in the cultural studies, such as English and Mathematics, which necessarily think of thai in a prohibition state?

(3rd) Students attending an agricul tural college usually come direct from the farm. Frequently their prepar atory education has been much neg lected and they start out on a course with enthusiasm and intense purpose but witn the great handicap of an ill-prepared foundation. In a large university a. great part of these ill prepared siudents are classed with a lazy-good-for-nothing element from the cities and towns which frequently crowd the freshman class of our state universities, unprepared through their own negligence. As a consequence, many of what would be diligent, care- ful investigators and agriculturalists of no small ability, encouraged by individual help from sympathetic sources, become discouraged, -disgust- ed, cast-offs from a state institution which was established for the good oi the state and the nation. My conclusions are based upon recognition of -the peculiar nature the work, the necessarily peculiar me- thods of conducting the work, and the importance of agricultural education to an agricultural state -or province. This is the opinion a man who not only has made a theoretical study of the matter but has Sad practical experience and has of the practical working; out of both systems. -5 Vermillion expects to get an exper- imental farm. May it meet with bet- ter luck than Lacombe, Magrath, Gleichen and High River in their aspirations for the Agricultural Col- lege. F. H. Sherman, a happy farmer, was in the city yesterday. The worries of strikes are a thing of the past and he is now looking forward to a bountiful r JAIL THE HOBO Those who are in charge of the ad- ministration of law and the punish- ing and prevention of crime should a policy of jail and -up enlargement. It is a mistake to keep sending the hoboes from one town to another. This is no hard- ship on them for it is what they in- tended doing anyway. But to lock them up for thirty days with hard labor is a different matter. They will soon learn that if they have to work -they might as well work for wages and earn something so as to rest be- tween times. Any hobo who strikes a town should not be allowed to get away from it until he is so sick of it he will .never want to come back. The lock-up with hard labor is the only way'to get at these fellows. In tJus western country where settle- ment' is sparse in parts it is especial- ly necessary to keep tramps off the Tottd. In these parts women are gen- erally alone and the incidents some- times reported to the police of the frights these women receive point to the fact that something ought to be sending these fellows away. Thejr naturally will go where they will not be molested in their begping and thieving and the best Lethbridge is the only city in the -world engaged in the coal mining bus- iness.
