In the third instance he is an apologist trying to excuse and justi- fy, in a measure, himself for the statement in the circular for the issu- ing of which he had been called to task by the people of the southern part of the province. In the letter he admits that the circular does not state the situation correctly but Jails to see where any harm has been done and later on declares that he has a very perfect knowledge of conditions in the south. The Herald dares to doubt this statement. He remarks that it is unfair to draw conclusions too rapidly and too strongly from the results of the last few years. Mr. Harcourt must remember that it is only within the last few years that the people started farming in the gets the capital moved to ridge, it will right for him it that thQ government eiider regard .for 'the north. in un- of the uliove move'one-o he exitert "pliaiubors of tho city ilready perfecting apparatus bl-gmin from frost.

The Underwrit- ers' Association have knocked off ten cents a hundred on insurance which am ourits to a'mill on the dollar of tnxes At fifteen mills on.the dollar the tax- es come to fifteen bucks on the thou- sand and the saving in insurance on the same amount Js one dollar. So that really he is paying fourteen mills instead of fifteen. It is a cau- tion how these improvements do not cost anything. It pays to be good 1 but it pays more to be better. Good- I ness as well as righteousness is profit j able unto all things. Dad don't take much stock in poli-1 tics but I wouldn't be surprised if he got busy to get the scat of gov- ernment for Alberta moved from Ed- monton to Lethbridge. The air of the north does not seem to agree with the brains of the government officials. The deputy-head of the ag- ricultural department at times shows serious signs of a loosening in the upper flats, that' break of his about Southern Alberta having to have the most favorable season to get even a fair crop being the latest evidence of there being something wrong.
