From i remarks made in certain- quar- ters the statement holds good. The Herald is found.fault with for enter- ing the lists against rte companies at the wrong end, what over that means We disclaim any., intention of joining in any certain campaign jnstituted.M nn> parUcuIar partv for reasons best known to itself Vii hale our own irens of certain matters "and where are convinced that the Interests ot the public are in am scnousls 'menaced, ive are far from 'backward in expressing our opinions. We do not profess to.'be we are at least modest enough to ac- knowledge this. But the proof of the pudding is In the eating ing intimately or ac quamted v-ith the ingredients go to compose, it This eniuih ap plies to the puvmg as it appeals to outward an.d.cominon sense, It does not require an assumed ac -viitb the properties of .'volatile oils and bitumen to pass Judgment on what is clearly indicated to the ordman eje Every roan to his trade, and a little knowledge otten proves a dangerouo thing to those i who rush to exhibit it.

Much has been made as to our allu- sion to the- indents caused by the hoofs of horses without any reference being made to the context Whether these marks- are of a benelicial na- ture, and whether, as stated, .tuese will in time disappear, bringing the pavement to its former condition of is a matter for experts to exulain. It is for this explanation that our remarlcs were-made But no notice" has been the impo ant part of OUT statement that pieces havefteeniact'ually taken out of the paving in places where these indents occur. Will the i'magic process of time not only bring., back the origina! smoothness of the paving, but also restore automatically these missing portions' This is a question which the public may well ask. We no desire to join in throvs ing stones simplv for tt e sheei de light of game We hale obsened certain marks in our opinion point to faultmess caused through the reasons we already stated It explanations satisfacton to the pub lie and acceptable to it are tendered .we shall-be satisfied. There our duty ends, .The statement of th-a cement company has been published hut there is yet tihe matter of the chipped pieces to be' esplained. What of the Future? rpHE COWENTION issembled In J_ Seattle, for the purpose of in vesdgating the causes which sre leading to the excessive emigra lion Into Canada, gives considerable jood for thought with regard to the Inture of this coimtrv That is respect to the agricultural develop- ment to carry forward which Immi grauon not only from the States from other countries, is not only Eirable -but necessary.

The department-will furnish a definite quantity of seed corn to every boy and girl-under-10 years o( age, who will undertake to plant it and .care for the crop. Alaxwell says in his letter -to each teacher: "There should be in your school a Corn Club, including every boy and girl under 16. years old who is able to cultivate a- small piece of land They should keep-a record of the amount of seed used, the amount of land cultivated, the kind "of land, 'the amount of labor put noon it the condition of the laud: the amount of crop, etc., and send to the-'Corn Show- next-winter five'or more ears our of the crop. You will much fmaterial for fnrhi accounts, in -in items of business, and in showing the value, privileges, etc., of farm life as compared with urban life." -The' same plan has been adopted- elsewhere, we understand with good Jesuits and it ought to help to make tlltf school a n oi-e Mtal factor in the life of the communlb No doubt the Department of Agricul- ture would extend similni aid to ex periments in' other crops in sections herft thesS crops are or ought to chief'ones.
