Since that meteoric visit in which he so distin- guished himself he has given Alberta very little not only of his presence, but of his attention. .Did the Calgary Herald expect this appears, has been too much for it, As representing all that is Tory in the province, it is not to he deceived by. any glittering glamor to mark that Mr. Rogers possesses the magic wand. .It has no desire to see him surrounded by the gilded trappings of royalty, once more to make 'wh was..sad to say, a-fleeting impressio One eannoc help feeling somewh foolish when the feet of its idol a discovered to. be made of clay, an to the Calgary Herald we tender o deepest.'commiseration.
