H- Woods, which stated .hut the National coal company ot Spokane was prepared to put 000 toiiB of storage coal from the. Montana mines Into Western Canada within .sixty days of the order bciny placed. Haste in decision was urged as after July and August there would be a scarcity of. cars. The committee faced the situation fairly, and passed a number of resol- utions, the most important of- which was the following: "That a joint committee of the of the Board of Trade and a committee appointed by the Council for the pur- pose of taking steps to assure a suffi- cient supply of coal for the city of Calgary during the coming winter, it was unainiously decided to memorial- the Federal Government to remove all the duties on coal entering Can- ada from the United States for a period of six months in per- mit of the importation of coal at. a minimum cost to the citizens of the Western Provinces, and that a copy of this resolution be forwarded to (Mayor 'Mitchell at Ottawa for presen- tation to the proper auhorities." "he resolution was mtoved and seconded by Commissioner U raves and ...I.- W. Campbell, it was really .passed at the instigation .of Mr, Woods, who read a letter from the -National' Coal Company offering supply the Western provinces of Canada with one hundred thousand tons of coal from Montana mines with in sixty rtaya-- after, notice Tvasi giv- en. The company urged that the or- ders if be given, be placed dur- ing July amf August, as those were the slackest months, before the crop was moved. The coal they proposed to ship was of the storage variety.

RAYMOND STORES LOSE JHIS MONEY A Big Sum Spent Every Month With Depart- mental Stores (.Special .to tlic Raymond, July 22. The Herald scribe curious today to know how much nic-npy was-sent from this town to the Wil-onler houses of Calgary, Winnipeg and To- ronto. Supposing that nearly all tlic money..was sent by postal note or incmeyrorclcr, _ lie hied himself to the post ohice and. made enquiry. Af- ter carefully calculating, one, of the officials informed him that in round figures it would amount to a month, or carried out to years, would represent a decease in the loc- al bank accounts of 000. This seemed .goodly sum lo the Herald reporter and he just won- dered if lite couldn't have been spent in Kay'monri stores to just as good advantage, to the pur- chaser. Without denying a place lo the mail order eslabiislnneiit in this west, it must he evident to every right-thinking citizen that too imicli money is sent out of our western towns for goods that could be bought "just as at home.

They had five cows and tried lo drive them into the water.. The fire was right upon them, and two of the cows dashed info the burning and, of course, were destroyed. The remaining three were got in just as the younger boy, overcome by the heal and smoke, fell on the edge of the lako. The elder brother picked him up and placed him across the back of ono of the cowg, and thus EHvert his life. While they were stand ing in the water three hoys came by on a raft they had built, and begged the Levees to go with them. They de- clined, however, thinking; they were' safe enough where they were. The rnfi drifted from the shore until it Sot out in (he waves, when it went to nieces. Its three occupants started swimming for shore, but two went down when fl short distance from the wreck of their raft. The third strug- gled back, and Levee, the elder, wad-, od out lo his assistance, hut before reaching him ,lbe lad went down, thus all three perished.

SAVING THE CHILDREN It Is interesting to ison between the various systems in existence on the American continent of handling neglected children. 'I'he. annual.'report-.of: the Board of Control For the Department of -Ne- glected Children of the State of Rhode Island, shows that that State, which started out with ,the Idea of centralizing the work', of neglected children, and making the. institution- al idea paramount, is ing awav fiom Its original plan and children are being-sent'lo foster- homes in the State- as rapidly as1, fos- ter-homes can he secured. It is Just possible that1 with the combination idea of a central institu lion whore the children gath- ered and properli classified, the de fectives corrected, and the degener- ates sent lo more ilgid types of In stilntibn, nnd the results will be moie satisfactory than under either sjs tern of institution, or the placing out system when used absolutely without the use of institutions The combined sjstcm n undoubtedlv the right one In dealing with the no glected or dependetn child As com- pared with the Alberla Act for the Protection of Neglected Children, that of Khodc Island in many ways is far 'behind the'Alberta Act in tho matter of advantages. There 11 no such thing as the co operation of inleiesied individuals in the implication of the Rhode Island Act. This phase of the work-In of the-most important facfors in tho success of the system in' A-lberta. It is alwajs difficult to make people ic olize that nearly all als and paupers arc marie such early in youth. Vet that, this fact-is con- firmed by experience is beyond lion. Bad environment, had example, and bad training will almost invariably produce a bad citizen. The majority Juvenile offenders, at. are the victims of conditions over which they have no control, and are Ihc logical outcome of the early dan r.ers and temptations to which have boon subjected. H is only by the utilization of the immense force of human sympathy, which is ready to go out to creatures, in distress, that the snccess.pt tho Children's Protection Act will be ul- timately II is owing to the fact that this fea lure is "allowed for In the Alberta Acl, that the work is bound -.to be- come a broader and blgicr work than' any other on the continent, where provision has not been made for the harnessing up of the human interest of individual" other than the paid of- ficials of the organimtion. The State'of Rhode Island has lali- en the stand thllt all dono foi the children in that State must be (lone directly under the supervision of the department of Neglected Children. This system has protected many a foster parent In the positision o! a child, which, without the centralized idea, might have been turned bacle to worthless and the time anil affection of the fosUr parents spent in training and caring for not-taken :into consideration.
