The same style of ma- been Installed in each of these buildings, and lias been found very: efficient." In the boiler room there is a large filter tank in which for Uio jail is filtered. The from the lake on the 'farm '-into the filter, and front there'forced into the large lOO-barrel tank, which IB placed on'top of n 115- foot thus ensuring enough force, to'distribute the water supply j all bounding.

Complete Sewage System The sewage system is also com: plcte. A' small, building has been built a'bbiit." one hundred feet from the southeast cornel of the jail in which iB-'ettuat'ed a; septic, tank. TA11 the sewage is treated in this tank in a scientific .which it 13 drawn off to tine of the low lying parts of the-farm. There is yet a greaf. deal to" be done in order to pet the institution into famootb peinnnent woikmg order bat it is being i listed along quick ly as possible'. During the fall three, cottages' will be built will be the main driveway west of the Jail. .These will be close enough to'the power house that they maybe steam heated and equipped otherwise In.much the same manner as the jail itself. The deputy warden, the 'bur- sar and the engineer will occupy these cot-tages when completed. Ne'xl spring the wardens home will be built in front and to the west of the build- ing." The plans for this building have already been approved, but as there is ao much to do at present the build- ing' has been put off till next year. It will, he a large two storey house With eight "rooms, and complete in every detail. Lay Out Fine Grounds During the summer 'tHe grounds will be laid out. by A. Mitchell, whose experience along this line will have large scope and an effoit will hej made to the. .grounds surround- ing the jail one oC .-the (beauty spots about Lei. h bridge. The government are grading1 the road frpni the-city past the jail, so that when -the jail grounds are laid, out and fee'pt, them should ibe no prettiei drive in or near the city than this one. All ihe work of laying out the -grounds and keeping them .in order -will be done by the.prisoners, and when there nre one hundred or .more to do the work It should be done well. So far ihe prisoners have done none of the worl: on the farm, their time being Jaken up wholly about the jail building, which they-are required to keep scrupulously clean. The farm, however, is bning broken up, a steam outfit having been hired for this pur- pose. But next year the prisoners will be reifuireil to do this work, and fill the vegetables necessary for the jail, besides for sale, will be grown. General agriculture will u] no .be curried on hi the most acieiHific fashion, and In this way the institu- tion may be made to support itself to a great extent. Freedom for Prltenert The matter of handling prisoners' committed to 'the Jail has Decn a ducBtton which has received a great deal .of thought from the authorities who have this matter in hand. The old system of treating all prisoners as though they were hardened crimin- als In loiing favor, and a saner meth- od adopted. By this method the pris- oners, while kept under a strict watch, are made to feel that they are responsible in themselves for getting themselves there, that that in not the fault" of those In charge of the jail, and that us lone they behave them- selves they will be given all the free- dom which can consistently be giv- en. In this way a man has a chance to think matters over quietly, and if he is not wholly bad he will in most cases conic to the conclusion that tho law was right and he WHS wrong. It- is in keplng witli the system followed in reformatories, and the object of the authorities here is to send a man away, from the jail better than when he went in. It is as it were, a.moral hospital, and if the inmates can be so treated that they reach a higher stan- dard morally, the institution will have served a two-fold purpose. For this reason the old style of striped suiti, and the old custom of clipping -the heads.of the prisoners has been.done away with hero. There is nothing of the convict appearance about an inmate which can possibly be avoided. Their hair is cut in the ordinary manner, and, instead of tho stripes, they wear ordfUary suits of blue" denim. Thus they present the appearance of ordinary laborers, and are riot subjected to the humiliation of the convict is espec- ially repulsive to a man whose tastes are at all refined. They are allow- ed to shave once a week, and with such an admirable sanitary system Bt hand, can .keep themselves in good condition physically. Routine of Prisoner The ordinary routine of a day with the inmates about this: He rises at" six- in the washes and cleans up his cell for the da.yv Af, seven o'clock'; the guards open the dcpre of the cell department nntl he files in to breakfast .wtth. the rest of the inmates. His breakfasj, con- sists of porridge, bread, butter, coffee, sugar, milk and evaporated fruit. This last "Kern is often replaced by syrup, or jam, to vary the bill of fare. He about his work in charge' of the guard, there being one guard for about every ten men, till dinner. Dinner consists of soup, beef, potatoes, brerttit tea, milk and sugar. Supper'comes nt six.-and consists of rice, 'bread, tea, milk and su- gar. At six-thirty he goes to his cell and is locked. up ntfeht, during which lime there are only a couple of guards ..on ;dts-ty. This daily. procedure' is varied (o some extent on Sunday. The meals may'be changed somewhat, and none but the necessary work is done. He is allowed to go to the, reading roonn where read or write let- ters (o his friends. Or course, if ho writes a letter it- must be inspected by the warden goes iriio tho mails. also bo visited by a friend.on but always under the eye of 'a guard. Before long ,i? is expected that some arrangements will ;bo made to holfl divine service at Rome the day, probably in the afternoon. Considering all things, and cspec- ially considering tho was the man's own.; actions which brought him within the'confines of the jail, the prisoners are well treated, and it is snfe to say that in-many cases they are great .deal more comfortable, and better off in every way. while detained 'there, than they were while following their manner of living be- fore being Imprisoned.. And if such is tho case there is no doubt UIIH tlis institution will had a beneficial rather than a degrading or lowering influence on their lives. MAJESTIC THEATRE W. a.

To the Western man-his protection- ist speech.was very'disappointing.

The Globe figures that Toronto, as it existed before the -annexation of the last few years, will show a pop- ilation of and that another will be found in West Toronto, East Toronto, Wychwood, Earlscourt nd other annexed territories. Acre-division of tlic Toronto elec- toral .districts is presaged by (lie globe's guess that West Toronto will show; a population equal to any two if .-the other Toronto ridings, with ikl Tvronlo a close second, and with South Toronto showing a de- crease on account of the great in- crease in tlie number of factories. The returns of tlic various census arc being rapidly made, and an official statement of the population is expected in a few- weeks.

About damage hy fire was done to the Induction Com- pany (ilant at Tliorold. a good one, and'he has. endeavored .'.to protect tlie intercuts of his constit- uents here in relation to the railroad routes and the disposition of the St. Mary's River, etc., He is.alwajs ready to help any per> t son where possible who Is in his riding and he looks after our interests if are his constituents, no matter what- our politics may -be. Southern Alberta needs reciprocity, however, and we hope to see come, as, it must give us extended markets, and millions of settlers with push and capital to aid in the development of our great country. The sooner It comes -the better. Already cattle men have, been surld that it 1 delproeity was put ihiough, they would get from fa.OO to ?700 more per head for their than they can realize at .present.
