In addition !o this, they have h'ltle in common with those who board and lodge them, whilst, if they be suitably housed together, they form little community of Iheir own, in which they can join in their studies, and materially assist each oilier in .their life's work. By building a comfortable home, and fixing Ihe renlal at a reasonable figure, just enough lo cover the capital invested will) interest, thft teachers will be benefited and Die town will not be put to any financial loss. The occupants can then arrange for their own cook, who will be matron, and'they can always guaranlee well prepared and 'nutritious meals, such as are not generally a boarding house characteristic. This afford them (he-best means for cullivaling mind and muscle, ant should prove an excellent "home from home." From an economic point of view the .advantages named b; the Calgary paper are no doubt and oh this "ground th Tabcr idea has much lo commend it. the other hand there is something of disadvantage in Ihe scheme. The plan wil neccsarily mean a segregation of teachers, wilh an. approach the old mdhkisli system of education. _ The profession ofjteacliing inclines to cause the minds of ill lo'follow in certain and, il'may said, in narrow grooves. This is greatly-counteracted toy the dppprfunilies afford ed lo mix with fellow men, and so take-ihcm out for th lime being from their special avocation. .This tends lo a broad cning of view which in the scheme of education thai is It be desired. It will'have a salutary, effect oh teachers in over coming the tendency lo talk bringing Ihcm inlo con tacf with men and mailers oulside Ihcir sphere. Conlimiall. mingling with those of Ihcir own species cannot be said lo b wholesome. This applies to all callings !o Ilia of the. leaching profession. There is nothing bcilcr for ihen lo mix occasionally wit! those vyhp'havc views and ideas oulsirfe which they at accustomed to dwell. Tliis is bound-ip be beneficial, is exactly an unimportant farm Innds worth about in all. Lei us see how it works out. if had full valuation upon buildings and personally and land, wilh the licenses complete, we would have a rate of 16.1 mills. The difference in the taxa- lion upon Mr. Owens' friend under full tasalibn and under single lax would be about which is not so very much for a man who has made about through ihe_cntcr_prise of Calgary people and through no effort on his part, lie certainly has no cause lo grumble, and Mr. Owens has no excuse lo grumble for him. The difference in Die taxation which this -gentleman will have to pay now and under full single tax is'abbnl On the other hand, take Ihe laboring man who is building up the cily and making valuable the friend'of Mr. Owens. He has a lot valued at Under'thc full valuation he would pay S 10.25. Under the present mctlioii he pays he would v Further, says Ihc Albertan: Mr. Owens' friend knows whal to do. -He is, going Jo sell his roperly. If we had liu'd single lax years landlords i a similar position would have disposed of their holdings long efore this time, anu we would not have hud a city which strctch- s out for miles and miles, and mostly composed of vacant lots. Sre would have had a compact cily and the cost of adihinistra nn would have been half as much as il is now, and the lax rale have been less than 16% mills, which would he the full is rale under full valuation at the present lime. The tax rate is high now, not because we are approaching ic single lax, bill because we have nol had single fax all 'along.
