Remarkable Record in BoC'h Education and in Knlist- ment for Service TImt Alberta's Methodist colleges are in a highly efficient condition fu spite ot the financial trials and other disruptions consequent upon the war, in the very pleasing conclusion reach- ed after listening to the reports or Kov. Dr. Korby of Mount Royal Col- lege, Calgary, Hev. J. ST. Rlddell, of Alberta College South, and Principal McCall, of Alberta College North, de- livered at the morning flosslon of the Conference yesterday. The reports all showed that the colleges are doing well, that their attendance 13 increas- ing in a very pleasing manner, and though finance matters are Cannes of worry, they are coming through the year with flying colors. Mount Royal College Is the only one of Uit> three which does not receive direct aid from tho Methodist church, and there, part of the revenue is from private contributions from wealthy Methodists which materially aid In keeping tho institution in operation. Sixth Annual Report Rav. Dr. -Korby !a presenting his re- port spoke briefly of the war which had taken many students from tho college in the past year. U was his Gth annual report anil showed that during; the year registration in all departments was 248, while the in-1 mously, and this was the feature of dividual registration amounted to 159, report.

Her- bert J, Hall is another student of the college who has laid down his life on tho battlefield. Dr. KIddcll stated that the registration this year bad shown an increase of ten por cent, but 50 cGnt of the -male students had onllnted, breaking up the classes and seriously reducing tho revenue. How ever, It would be very- to know that the college is tilling ii place in the educational needs-; of (lie prov- ince m per cent of tins students enrolled are from the outlying dist- ricts. The speaker then attention to the significant fact that the first degree of Bachelor of Divinity ever issued in Canada by a state univerHtv had been issued to Mr. Telfcr recent- ly. Alberta college gives, a course In theology for which diplomas arc issued and this course together with the university course is recognized by the province, so that Alberta is t it only province in the Dominion which grants a 13. D. degree from its versity. This is a. long forward It wouldn't have been done if Alberta college had not been them when the university was built, and lie urged the young men of the province who are entering the ministry to take id vantage of the course. Regarding, finances. Dr. Riddel! said the fight had been hard but he hoped that, in spite of difficulties there would be or on the right side of the books on the year's work. The department of agriculture has just completed arrangements for the annual mixed farming special train to different parts of the province commencing June 23rd at Cowley. The train this year will be more complete than ever, no pains being spared to make each department as interesting and attractive as possible. The consist of fourteen cars" in all, comprises live stock, dairy appliances, grains, grasses, weeds, models of sheep and pig pens, and poultry houses; exhibits from the demonstration farms and schools of agriculturfc, and u car of stuffed and mounted wild animals and birds native to the province. Lectures will be given on the vari- ous branches of live stock and field husbandry, also on domestic .science und home nursing. A special car will lie provided where children can be amused and taken wire of while their mothers attend the domestic science lectures. The train will atop at Leth- bridge from 2 till 5 p.m. the 24th day of June and everybody Is cordially invited.

Your kidneys arc ouf the wind, and, consequently, the oss of soil water from evaporation 'rom the soil surface and from the :ield crops.

But it is not generally known that windbreaks actually pay dividends. At least stud- ies made a few years ago in Nebraska and Kansas indicate that windbreaks are profitable. Tho state forester will soon study their influence in thin state. It must be auimtteU that wind- breaks occupy space that could be profitably devoted to agricultural crops, and that tho roots of trees and their shade render n of ground on cither aide of the rela- tively unproductive. Yet, in spite of these drnwlmcks, efficient windbreaks undoubtedly do wore cood than evil. FUTURE OF THB LIVE STOCK INDUSTRY. Hopefulness and confidence in the uture were the noticeable features at all the live stock meetings held during he winter, and they were general hroughout the country. United with he optimism expressed was the ur- gent call to the farmer to breed better, >r as weii as possible, and to breed true to type. Not aloae the Domin- ion department of agriculture but also the various provincial depart- ments, are engaged in active efforts to place pure-bred animals at the dispos- al of farmers generally. Thus there is little'excuse for breeding to scrubs and seventeenth degree mongrels. Above all is the item of healtli. The wise farmer will take care Liiat the cattle he uses are not only true in pedigree but are good in conformation sound in health and free from pos- sibility of hereditary disease. In breeding above al! things, there 'is truth in the saying that a dollar well spent is a pound well earned. At all times.it behooves farmers to note -that things are well with their live stock, -but there never was a per- iod when Canadians were more earn- estly summoned to do their utmost in this resjiect. Never was there a period when ,so much depended upon their efforts. In a comparatively short time, reckoned by years, prob- ably the cattle begotten this year come to early maturity, there is going to be a universal demand for live stock of every description, but espec- ially for the bovine. The nations at present at war will be very tired ofl eating canned and salted stuff and -will demand fresh beef, and, as for dairy cattle there is even now a scarcity of .milk owing to the great output of cheese required, and the needs of the day must of necessity be very far short of what they will be when declarations of peace are signed. On the manner of cattle we breed now will depend our success- es and profit not alone then, but al- ways. Live stock breeding is a branch of production that, following the bountiful harvest of last year is nat- urally pre-eminent in the -agricultur- ist mind. Taken, in conjunction with fruitful fields if successfully, wisely, and thriftily carried on Its means un- told prosperity to the country. It means money to the farmer and bene- fit to the soil. It means help to Brit- j aln and her allies. In short it means profit all round. The main things needed to bring this about are to breed to' the available best, to pay every possible respect to health and sanitation, to hold on to producing cows, to give every good heifer a chance, to bear in mind in securing service that the cheapest is more fre- quently than not the dearest in the long run, and to remember that Can- ada's reputation as a producing coun- try will be particularly at stake in the earliest shipments after the war. 1LECTRICAL (SUPPLIES AND ALL KINDS OF ELEC- TR1CAL WORK W.L.
