NOT THROUGH BALLASTING YET IMPOSSIBLE1 TO PUT FAST TRAIN ON ALDERSYDE LINE UNTIL. ^UTUMN When the new summer time table was first mentioned a few weeks ago, it was thought that the C. P. R. would endeavor to put on a through passenger train on the Kipp-Aldersyde line, in order to give better connections between Lethbridge and Calgary. The Board of Trade took the matter up with General Superintendent Price at Calgary, and urged that steps be taken in this direction. Supt. Price has, however, informed the Board that it is impossibla to make such a change at the present time. He gives as his reason that the line is not ballasted properly to permit of a fast train being run over the line at present, and on this account the old rotue, via Macleod, is preferable for some time to come. However, he states that, a large gang of men are now at work ballasting the line, and h-e expects that W "'the time the fall time schedule goes Into effect, it. will be ready for a fast-service, which will cut off more than i/oue hour in the time between- Leth-bridge and Calgary. A foi c )f linemen are also at work on the li.iu "Hitting the telegraph line '� iu shape, 30 that there shall be no ob- | structibn in the way of a faster ser- I vie in the fall. A good service is now being given over the old line via Macleod, this having been made possible by the re- ! placing of the tifi-uouud rails by 8r>-pound rails on the Calgary-Macleod branch. The Kipp-Aldersyde line is equipped with (>5-pound rails at pve- ;. sent. CURRICULUM FOR HIGH SCHOOLS MR. HAMILTON TELLS OF GOOD WORK 'DONE'BY SPECIAL COMMITTEE \V. A. Hamilton, superintendent of the city schools, returned yesterday from Edmonton, where he had been attending the final meeting of the committee for revision of course' of studies for high schools throughout .the .province, 'in. the. organization of this^coursc thefcvojdjt retired ; for teachers' examinations %~asjbeen giyfcn special attention, as this will be the course-'receiving the largest attention iu the smaller, high schools of the province. Provision is made for spe^ cial courses in the city high schools.; Jr. these, students, desiring to secure a general or commercial education will be allowed to � select special studies. Manual training and domestic science will now be.recognized as high school subjects for the first two-years. Up to the present special courses have not been recognized by the department, consequently schools have been prevented from adapting their curriculum to local needs. It is |'be-lieved that the'change-will bring the high school into closer connection with business and industrial life andyi that students taking the special courses will be qualified, not merely as office assistants, but as future directors of business enterprises. The chairman of this educational committee has been Dr. Tory, president of the University of Alberta, and much of the success of the^wprk has been due to his wnole-hearte.d'direction. It is believed that the new program will for many years bear testimony to Dr. Tory's interest in the cause of education. It is interesting to note that since the appointment of the committee about eighteen months ago three lircn have occupied (he position of Minister of Education the original committee being selected by ex-Premier Rutherford, the first meeting being called by Hon. C. It. Mitchell, and llie last meeting by Hon. J. R. Boyle. That the members of' the committee have the. cause of education at heart is disclosed by the fact that they have contributed their time and thought to the work without pecuniary remuneration. The new courses hereinbefore outlined will go into effect with the opening of the schools' alter the mid-summer holidays. G. N.

MADE IN-CANADA TRAIN SATURDAY BOARD OF TRADE WILL SHOW THE VISITORS OVER THE CITY On Saturday next, the "Made in Canada" exuibit train, with its party of Canadian manufacturers will arrive, coming in from the East at five o'clock in the morning, and leaving at noon. Great interest is being man ifested in the city on this unique advertising scheme, and there is sure to be a large crowd iu attendance at the exhibit cars during the whole forenoon. The Lethbridge Board of Trade will undertake the entertainment of the visitors, while they are in the city, ar�d have mapped out a morning's Instructive entertainment, which will combine business with pleasure. The plan is to combine the "Made in Canada" trip with the "Made in Lethbridge" excursion. The "see Lethbridge first" trip, which was postponed some time ago on account of inclement weather conditions will be a continuous performance all next Sat urday morning. It is proposed to make up automobile parties of local business men and the visiting manufacturers, these parties to visit all the places in Lethbridge and surrounding districts where anything is manufactured. The itinerary will in all probability be much the same as that mapped out for the postponed "see Lethbridge first" trip, although the time will have to be cut down considerably. This combination of events will give the business men of Lethbridge an opportunity to learn what the visitors think of Lethbridge as a manu. facturing centre, and. what chances there are to make it a great industrial centre iu the future, when the population of the South is many times what it is now. And the visitors will at the same time see for themselves the sort of country which supports growing cities like Lethbridge, which lis constantly calling on them for their manufactured goods. It will be one of the most unique entertainments yet afforded the visiting party, and should be productive of good results all round. The details of the plan will be arranged more fully at the weekly meeting of the Board of Trade on Thursday evening. Crop Conditions in Lethbridge District (Continued from front page) moistureto do until the. end of June. The crops never looked: better, nor prospects brighter. All you have to do is to go out into the country, and talk to the old-timers to catch the spirit of enthusiasm prevailing. Vye travelled lately as far east as Medicine Hat,1 and didn't see anything wrong with the country anywhere." Conditions North of City Carmaugay, June 4.-A fair summary of crop conditions in this district would be to say that there has been an abundance of rain iu the district east of this town, and not enough between here and Claresholm. The Sundial, Bowville and Swe^t Valve districts and all- along the Black Spring Ridge, have had frequent and heavy showers. In town there has also been considerable rain, in -fact, on Monday of last week there was a regular soaker. On the west side there have been only a few scattered showers and the farmers would gladly welcome rain. On the whole, the crops are looking splendid, and if rain comes tor the west country soon it will be a banner year. In the South Country Warner, June 4.-Rain is needed in this district, although up to the present, the crops have come along finely and have not suffered. Farmers, however, complain that the. few scattered light showers to date are not sufficient, being merely temporary in thei; beneficial effects. The ground needs a thorough soaking and if it comes within a week there will be rejoicing. So far the crops are looking well and timely rain will result in a bumper harvest. In the homestead district east of Warner there has been considerably more rain than around the town, and farmers are apparently well satisfied with weather conditions. Optimism Everywhere Charles S. I-lotchkiss, chief publicity commissioner of the province, was a visitor in the city today. Seen by a Herald representative, Mr. Hqtchkiss, when interviewed regarding agricultural conditions at present, stated that between Edmonton and Lethbridgvsr the crops were looking in fine shape. "In fact," continued Mr. liotchkiss, I never saw the grain looking better." Farmers everywhere are very jubilant over the condition of the soil, and although Lethbridge may look ;i little dry, still the surrounding country never looked better. When in Claresholm recently, Mr. I-lotchkiss found farming men there very optimistic over the prospects for this year. However, concluded Mr. Hotchkiss, Lethbridge is about due for a rainfall, and indications today point that way. Around Chin To the Herald this morning, a. S.

FREE ADMISSION TO EVERY CAR 202 rather dry, hut suffering as yet A Great Prospect . A. Cazier, one of the largest farmers in the Cardston district, is in the city today on his way to Chin, where the contTact on the irrigation system reservoir, is being pushed under his supervision. Mr. Cazi'er motored through from Cardston this-morning, and thus had an excellent opportunity to inspect the crops through the district south of Lethbridge. At Cardston, Spring Coulee and Magiath they could not possibly be Better. ..Winter wheat stands twenty or twenty-five inches in height, and has a most luxuriant appearance. There is absolutely nothing-" hindering its growth', and he believes that'the yield this summer will be a record breaker. But after Magrath is passed on the way north, the crops are not so strong; looking, nor is there such an evidence of moisture. / ' The mercury points to rain, and an early change iu weather conditions. The fact that the wind is now easterly bears out this hope. Grassy Lake Well Supplied Grassy Lake, June 4.-"We .-have had plenty of rain here," is the opinion expressed by persons who ought to know. The rainfall'-'has amounted to two inches in the last ten days/and the rain has been general' froih Taber east to Medicine Hat. There has not been as much rain south of Ivipp Coulee. Crop conditions are excellent, and the farmers are very optimistic. 'Rich Silverwarcl -rich in quality and beauty-should grace every home. Choosi' Iff ROGER? BUS.

John and his squaw were coming down Crooked Rapids, when their canoe upset. John saved his squaw, but lost his own life. Indians - are searching for the body with little prospects of success, as the water is. very rapid. Constable Stringer investigated, but could do nothing.
