It was a day that will long be remembered, and rightly so, lor it marks' the date of the opening of the" splendid new school, which has just been complet- ed. The people of Magrath are proud of their new school; and have good rea sons to be, for it is of the finest schools in the province, and it is -safe to say that no town of its size in Can- ada has one any better. Many and hearty were' the congratulations ten- dered to the School Board and the people by visitors, ajid all of them were sincere, f ,v The Building.' The building is a splendid structure built substantially, on 2 site which isrthe in the town, most imposing ap pearance. Two storeys and'a half high, surmounted by, a yell proportion- jed bell tower and flag'staff, the exter- nal appearance Is excellent. In the building there is provision for eight class rooms and an auditor- ium, capable of seating four hundred comfoi tably. The auditorium is so constructed with partitions that two additional class rooms can be secured if necessary. The class rooms are: furnished .with the latest adjustable seats and desks, 'excellent blackboards, and all other accessary equipment The High School room has a science table, sinks. All the rooms and1 are finished in mission green.

Dr. Lyle's sermon The following is Dr. LyleV sermon based on Matthew and dealing with the first evangelistic mission: This mission, he said, had its birth in the compassion or Jesus Christ thronged by multitudes with all their varied diseases and with their heart hunger for love. At the close of a long, hard day th great preacher and healer found him self exhausted of strength and with his work undone. The overwhelming need constituted an irrestible appeal, and in his desperation he turned to .his disciples' who stood around him, land besought their aid.

The next address was given by C.- Magrath, M. P. He expressed tiis gratification at seeing ,wnat the peo- ple'of Magrath were'doing, especially n view of the fact tha't the town had i been callea after him. Every citizen must recognize the duty" he owes to his family to whom he hands down his name. Mr.- Magrath said that he did not. overlook that respon- sibility with regard 'to MagraUv lor he -was proud of it. There is a great growth in -Western. Canada, Alberta in particular. Edu- cation is the index of progress and iu no "place'more "so than" in Ma'grath. Lethbridge has a school unsurpassed by any in Canada, but Magrath, out a doubt, has now the 'best school ot any place under ten thousand peo- ple in Canada.
