They are doing Tory estimate of the people of Sas kaichewan: "Did any one hear it remarked that the electors of Saskatchewan are the most, corrupt and abject in America, and the same time plain ordinary fools?" The Regina Province has expressed the same opinion though in somewhat more guarded language. nothing--but eat. ami driuk!"-Fliegen-de Blaetter. Those Saskatchewan Foreigners (Pincher Creek Echo) In a recent issue the Levhbridge News declared that "unlike Alberta, the population of Saskatchewan is largely foreign." Subsequently, R. Bluffer Bennett declared that 75 per cent, of the population- of the same province are Americans. So the News must therefore classify the Yankees as "foreigners." Wonder how all those Americans in Lethbridge-the people who have made the Coal City (what it is-will like that! His Only Chance Poet (raising his glass)-"A glorious fluid! A whole poem is contained in it." Skeptical Friend-"Then in heaven's name swallow it down quick."- Meggendorfer P.Iaetter. Why They Support Reciprocity (Gait Reformer) The surest, way to promote the an'-nexation spirit is to deny reciprocity. The Saskatchewan, farmer voted for reciprocity because he wishes to remain a Canadian. DRIVE CUPID OFF WIRE The "Pi" Line Fit the Case Exactly "The editor of the Weekly Plain-dealer is a charitable sort of feller," commented honest Farmer Hornbeak in the midst of his perusal of th3 village- newspaper, wherein he had encountered an example of the linotype's peculiar perversities. "In this article on the death of La'e Dabsack. who, betwixt me and you, hadn't much to recommend him except that he wasn't quite as bad sometimes as he was others, he says that 'the deceased was generally regarded as 'hijjjdytSO'hdkkiEockwUyjjagagy ben-gzt."" "And I guess that's about as near as anybody could get to making an estimate of the departed without hurting his relatives' feeling."-Puck. Government Telephones (Nanton News) " Government pperation of telephones in Alberta is a success, notwithstanding what the opposition may say. It is not perfect, but the people are getting better service than they would get from a private company, and they are paying no more for it, and probably not as much. Of course the government is not making as niuch money out of it as a private company would. It is not, run for the purpose of paying dividends on watered stock, in addition to Interest on the cost of construction and equipment. Those opposing th-e government operation of telephones in Alberta , ought to be compelled to depend on a private company for a while, until the see "where they're at." Some of us ^an remember, and don't need to have the leeson repeated. No More Flirting For Chicago Hello Girls Chicago, July "9.- Don't tell the hello girl you like her voice. Don't ask her what color her eyes arc. Don't purr "sweet nothings" at her. Don't try to start anything. Because, She -oen only answer out Of a phrase book. She is officially forbidden to flirt. She. officially, has no name, just a number. She will put the chief operator after you. � A telephone girl has nothing to do but work. First the company prohibited peelc-a-hoo waist*, fussy clothes and the like. Now comes the order that forbids the central girl from flirting on the wires, even just a tiny bit. The Chicago Telephone Company today put in effect a series of, phrases -fox the use'of the operator*. None other can he used. The "hello" is gone. Her place has been taken by "operator"-very much more dignifi-sd. If you call up something like thjs: "Hello dearie, you're looking well this morning; give me number double something or other." You will get. something liiw this: "Chief operator. Do you want a number?" The chief operator is switched on to lecture all the "mushy boys." She is the official chill of the telephone company. It's her business to be a frost. The new rules are the result of the constant effort toward increased �efficiency. Time elements in switchboard work are figured in fractions of a second. OUR POINT OF VIEW Mutsuhito is dead, iihito. Long live Yos The petition filed against the elec-i lion of Hon. Malcolm Mckenzie is just % caae of pure and unadulterated bluff.
