Ten casti prizes aggregating .125 were given, the first prize being 510. While-the con- test 'was organized by the Council-of clpal bo_ard of health officials. Any- agree that the price for kill- ing; the half -million flies was small .compared tq-tlie benefit. The Herald at the beginning of the season sug- gested paying for killing fiies and still believes that It would be a good thing al .the.-be-ginning of tbe fly sea- son to have a-'fly-swatting contest.

Where the Stage Gomes in THAT THE ST-iGb can be used for other purposes than merely as a vehicle for furnishing fun and enjoyment was evidenced by two recent events in the local theatrica world. Tbe first was the performance of the play entitled the second was the Kinemacolor display the Delhi Durbar, To the thoughtful the former afford ed a consideration of the problem oi ihe hunian race, comorised in the sci ence known under the new name ol eug-enics. There was a lesson taught of responsibility with regard to pos- terity In the matter of the'environ- ment in which children were brought into tbe world. The action of the play was confined to what General Booth termed the "submerged and the proverbial, fail- ure to grasp the meaning of respon- sibility in this particular class, is a matter of concern with regard to the future of the race.

The viewing.of such a spectacle brings a who sleep four in "a room." Here is contemplation and stirs up an interes A matter of grave importance for the! which otherwise might' be lacking. Empire Wide Recognition teachers could afford to go'frqin one part to another to teaclu There'would necessarily be some conditions to modify a wholesale ac- ceptance- of the Jdea. There would necessarily :be some .central authority or committee .which would set -the standard of 'efficiency and training that would entltie a teacher to one of. these "Imperial" certificates. Then, such-professional examinations as would be necessary owing to the dif- ferences of local geography, history, civics and-the like would have-to be arranged. are not difficult matters to provide.

There is nn dciiht hut what it would be of 1 great benefit to the and schools the empire over, and would lead to a greater number of exchan- ges of teachers from one part, of the empire to another, with the result that the different parts the empire would lift hotter known to the other parts.

If all the reports oi Mr. .Gilbert, the defeated cp.nrtidatc in Government Telephones (Nanton News) Government .operation, of telephones in Alberta is a success, notwJth'Etand ing what the- opposition may say. It is not perfect but the people are get ting better service than they would get from a private company, and thej are paying no mote for it prol) ably not as much. Of course the gov- ernment is not making as much mon- ey out of it as a private company would. It is not run fo'r the 'purpose of paying dividends on watered stock, in addition to Interest on the cost of construction and equipment. Those opposing the government operation of telephones in Alberta ..ought to he compelled to depend on a private com- pany for a while, until tho see "where hey're at."
