We've changed our tastes theso mod- ern days, when-prices bring de- spair; Wo used to like our beef well-dono, and now it's very rare. V Qthers Think R Progressives are Important Factors OBT. LA FOLLETTE, of Wiscon sin, the original Insurgent Re- publican, and the chief- of the present Insurgent wing of the Repub- Follette led the list, while Taft rank- ed -fifth. In the voting for third choice, La Follette ranked first, while Taft had fallen to sixth place. Just how seriously La Follette Is considered, can be judged from the fol lowing comment on the presidential Mean party, he first entered the United States Senate, was treated like a dog by the members of his party. When he arose to make his I situation in the last Issue of World's first speech in the Senate practically Work, a high grade American xnaga- every Republican Senator left the chamber, and the new statesman from Wisconsin then "Mr. President. I pause In my re-' marks to say this: I cannot be wholly Indifferent to the fact that Senators by their absence at this time indicate their want of Interest in what I may have to say upon this subject. The public Is interested. Unless this im- portant question Is rightly settled, seats now temporarily vacant may be permanently vacated by those who nave the right to occupy them at this time." Privately he had said after that speech: "I am alone In the Senate this year. Next year there will be two of us. Then there will be six of us, and'before six years there will be twelve of ue, and, on the way to a majority, vre shall have the balance of power." It Is now six years, and there are twelve of-them: La Follette, Bourne, Brlstow, Cummins, Polndexter, Gron- na, Works, Dlxon, Clapp, Borah, Brown and Crawford. Not. only .has the Insurgent wing In- creased and become powerful, but La Follette, the man who was ridiculed in his early days In the Staate, is now seriously considered as a Pres- idential possibility. He Is after the nomination: he says so himself, and the Republican party realizes he Is a Tery Important factor, the most ser- ious competitor President Taft has In his campaign for re-nomlnatlon. The other day a Kansas farmers' Journal, the Valley Farmer of Topeka. took a poll of of Its readers, fach voter Was to state his first, sec- ond and third choice for president.. More than hnlf, 7.SOO. named Mr. Roosevek as their first choice. But La Follette was the first choice of Taft was the first choice of In the voting for second choice La "There-Is, of course, another pos- sible contingency. Mr. Taft may fail of the nomination. The Progressive Republicans (Senator La Follette is an avowed candidate) may capture the regular Republican nomination. Then many of the old-line Republi- cans would refrain from voting, and the Democrats'would win with a pro- gressive candidate. "Almost anything may happen ex- cept the flection of an old-line reac- tionary Democrat. That seems impos- sible. The best representatives of each great masses ofi each great they are today are President Taft the one side, and Governor Wilson on the other side. That would be a pretty contest contest that would call forth such enthusiasm and endeavor as we have not had In a presidential campaign for a long time. "Mr. Taft snd Mr. Bryan or Mr. Taft would win. Taft and Mr. "would be the most Interesting possible contest." The mention of Woodrow Wilson's name indicates that the progressive element In the Democratic party Is likely to control the nomination, just as It ie possible that the element, may nominate La Follette as the Re- publican standard bearer. v The progressives In both parties represent the Ideals of the American people, but whether they can sway the party conventions la another mat- ter. Frequently the party convention Is more representative of the'polltlcal than ft Is of public sentf. mem. One thing Is certain: and that Is that the progressives can not be minimized. They are growing and by next year ff may he in absolute con- trol of the Democratic and Republican organization. OUR POINT OF VIEW Crazy (Carmangay Sun.) The provincial asylum at Ponokn wag opened on Monday, and the pro- vincial jail at Lothbrldge will be op- ened today. We will now have a place to send tho man who still says Southern Alberta is a dry belt Not Alarmed (Stratford .Beacon.) A short time ago, Mr. J. W. Flavelle, of Toronto, who Is at the head of tho Wm. Da vies Packing Co., was pro- claiming loudly that reciprocity would mm the packing industry. Hie com- pany has now on theimarket a bond Issue of at 6 per cent., and the official statement which accom- panies the announcement states that the net profits of the company have been S2GS.OOO per annum. The fur- ther Information is afforded that for the past five years the earnings have averaged over 17 per cent, on the common stock of the company, a sum sufficient to pay the bond Interest over three times and a half. These statements -would hardly indicate that the packing industry was in any great danger. Strong protectionist though ho Is, Mr. Flavelle Is not the kind of man who would entrap Investors into an enterprise to their loss. It is not the case of a captain desert- Ing a Mr. FlavelJe's business sense Is greater than his pol- itical acumen.

The transformation of Canada from a colony to a nation is one of the most interesting and significant facts of modern political history. A decade or two ago Canada's po- sition was anything but pleasant. Her climate had frightened Europeans a- way. "Our''Lady of the as Kipling called her. was regarded as a land dominated by barren winter. Today this impression no longer mis- leads the average man, and the hun- crown, she enjoys a complpete auton- England and have settled in Canada during the last ten years have enabled the Canadians to devel- op the country to such an extent that her products and resources have become famous the world over. Changed and better conditions in Canada have brought about a marked difference In the Canadian's attitude toward the rest of the world. A decade ago Canada moved with the hesitating steps of an Infant am- ong the nations of the world. Today she has thrown aside her swaddling clothes and taken her place among the nations of the 'earth. Although a colony under the British crown, she enjoys a complete outon- omy, and is free to enter into treat- ies with other nations In regard to her material welfare. Consequent upon this greater free- dom and enlarged horizon the Can- adian has become Imbued with a spir- it of absolute confidence and deter- mined optimism, with regard to the country's future. Politenesi in Philadelphia A man aud a woman boarded a Chestnut street car together, tho man carrying a heavy suitcase. v The man took tho only vacant seat, leav- ing tho standing.

George Was a Cheerful An ingenious young man once took his fiancee to church In a small try village, and when tho Unie for collection came around he rather os- tentatiously displayed a silver dollar. Presuming upon their engagement, the young woman placed a, restraining hand upon the arm of her fiance. "Don't he so extravagant, she exclaimed. "Oh, that's he replied. "I always make a point of giving a dol- lar when I go to a strange church." Just then tlie deacon came with the plate, and George dropped a coin. Ev- erything seemed favorable and tho young man beamed with, a of generosity. Then the minister gavb out the notlces-for ihe week, and con- cluded'with the wholly unexpected announcement of the day's collection: "The collection said he, "amounts to 05 cents."
