It is to the etect that a man walking on the sidewalk one day and pick- ing his way through the mud silk hat apareutly floating along'ia a pu idle. He reached it with his jKid'Hried to bring vnen to liis ainsueuient an old gen looked up from beneath it, mad clear through. The man on the sidewalk thereupon remarked that the gentle- aliogeiher its makchca, and anywhere else ately, own. not perhaps fortunately, in the fortun7 repetition would, be man was in pretty deep, to which re- plyNras made that he was in deeper than he looked for he was riding on top of a bus.

Ii is harmless kind of exaggeration be-j cause it is built on a scale coinmen-j surate with .the bigness of the coun- try, ami therefore so far overreaches itself as to be self-evident.. It is not I he used green willow ie. Everyone who has lived in thel West, visiled the West, or even read bout the West, has xuberance of .the western imigiuation nd has eiiher enjoyed it or been very dollars the people had to pay in con sequence. 'Do not forget the report of the Roy- _ al on Insurance which the; methods adopt- to-evade the law when dealing with trust funds. Do not forget that several of those "-Conservatives who were in the nest expect to go-into the cab inet should the Conservatives win at the much shocked by it: The o take it is to enjoy, it, a certain extent, to believe it. A favorite theme with the true Westerner is the rapid growth and development of' western towns. Mush room growth is what it would-be called in the East, but no such trite expression is in favor in the .West itself. A more original way of looking at it was that demonstrated DV a railway conductor who on -passing a certain point where a prairie was under construction .observed that there had been no sign of a town at that particular spot when he passed down the line the x day before, and followiug season he .discovered that the illqws" had struck root and were growing. At the end of that .year" the of the barn had risen three feet the ground. A year ago last spring, the barn was on stilts nine feet high, so. ihe farmer put in anoth- er floor and "con verted it into a storey building. At the bithe new floor was seven inches above the grounti the farmer looks forward to the time when a ppsibly a fourth-r storey may be added to his very markable barn. .This is equalled only by "the report Iowa.that a profitable industry is likely to be established in-the sawing of cornstalks into telegraph poles and fence posts.

Do not forget that the Conservatives were compelled to borrow money to pay the ordinary expenses of the country. Do not forget that a return to pow- ier of .the Conservative party means a f eturn to' the days of high protec- tive' tariff and heavy taxation, stagna- tion of business sad hard times. Do not forget that a Conservative "--goWrnmeut" in Canada means an end to the prosperity enjoyed under a. Liberal administration. 'The time has come for the people to reflect upon Canadian political history 'and look at the respective records of the men: who govern Cun- ada now and the men who governed 'once and desire office again. Men the vday he therefore issued orders to one his to put it on his list and hereafter to stand on' the rear platform and watch out for towns that sprang up after the train had gone by. The of the western towns .is also a_favorite with the man'blessed with the gift of imagination, and many an estimate" of unusual farm- land proportions has been sent broad- cast. The story of the man wlio started when a boy to drive around the circuniierence'of his father's farm and was an old man when he had completed the circuit and returned to find nis father dead, is an old one arid somewhat overdone. But only recently a milder and revised version of the big-farm story was given by an Alberta athlete who saw oppor- tunity to advertise to the people of the Coast the greatness of the prairie provinces. This particular athlete is Peter Terway, the Norwegian fast runner who competed for a Marathon race in Vancouver lately. Terway is a rancher, and so admirably built a fellow, and withal so genially inclin- STATISTICS OF BIG FAIR There 8S439 Admissions at the Gate and to the Grandstand Calgary, July clerks have totalled up the attendance during the different days of the Dominion fair.

These charges were proved against the Con- servatives, they have only been al- leged and not proved as against the Liberals.. No member of the Conser- vative party has ever mustered xip sufficient courage to make a definite charge against any member of the Liberal government and the policy of the government has never been even seriously criticised. The peo- pie know this and are satisfied. Ladies' Day, 345. Tuesday. July OUR SCHOOLS interest among the Vancouver sports- men. To the latter bo confided; with all the ingeniousness of absolute ver- acity, that as he had no time to run down to Calgary when he vished to train he was in the habit of taking a run around his farm limits twice a week to see if his fences were alright. When asked how far it was around his farm he quietly replied "sixteen miles." Then someowe-laughed anc the crowd caught on. Another notorious subject of dis cussion in the farther West is the lightfTing habits of the weather un der the influence of the Chinook wind It is said, by wny of illustrating thi Lethbridge from the day of its cre- ation haa never give educa- tion a foremost place. A peruss.! of the history of our school system in today's Herald shows that the city has never lagged behind in providing educational facil- ities. Practically every year has been marked by some record of pro- gress but this year will pretty near- ly surpass the records of all other years combined. The erection of the new Central School at a cost of and the building; of a temporary school at Courtland Street prove that our scnuut population is growing rapidly and that the. Board of Education is keeping pace with the progress of the city in providing the most mo- dern equipment and facilities. The Herald desires to congratulate the Board on its enterprises and as- it, that it will ever have the support of this paper in all its efforts to supply the student class of the city with the means of acquiring knowledge. OUR POIMT OF VIEW Lethbridge is growing. Two more business blocks nrc to placed un- dor construction next week. Educationally Xjeliibrulge is in the front rank will never drop be- hind long as the present enterpris I rarely it right. At random she may ring the bell; therefore she is a thing to avoid.

He confidently expects, however, that a' balance on the right side will be shown. The expenses on the building and grounds was to 000 more than expected, and the loss pn the fitting up of the schools is more than was anticipated. ThoJ large attendances have, it is expect-[ ed, made ;ip for these losses.
