We took this "barren island" in the East Atlantic and made it an outpost of Empire. We crowned its bleak heights with mighty guns, aiul gave it a gar risen of British soldiers to guard the noucleus of a naval base. We used it us a prison far the most famous captive that the world has known.

One of the lirst geiitleineu to congratulate him un his appointment was Mr. Frank Whitebides, president of the Central i Alberta Stook Growers' Association, which shows that the new oiiidal has the confidence and good opinion of th.' stock men of the province. At the cattle breeders' convention in Calgary recently, Mr. Stevens made some observations that go to prove he lias tlie right idea in regard lo de velopment of the cattle business, lu the course of au address there he said: "A market is the iirst requisite of anv industry. In proportion as that garrison has gone, the guns lie rusting in crumbling forts, the coal wharves empty, We and the islanders are star- may leave the question of whether the abandonment of St. Hel- ena as a militory post is wise or un for future discussion, but we market is profitable or unprofitable, other things being equal, the live stock business will flourish or it will fade; wi'.hout a profitable outlet for j our cattle, sheep and hogs, exhibi- tions, fairs and lectures will have about as stimulating an effect upon the live stock industry as has a peck of grain placed before au animal suflerinc from indigestion." ought to relieve the situation of the islanders at once.

P.s. Ht objected to the literature of any par ticular party being distributee throughout the country at the ex peruse of all classes of the people. Now that sounds very good, but wil Mr. Armstrong explain why he did not offer some criticism to the Hon George E. Foster, M. P. for Nortl Toronto, franking letters containing appeals to the electors of Toronto to support the Whitney Government in the recent campaign. If it is wrong in one case it wrong in the other. Mr. Armstrong may also explain how it is that Conservative literature has been sent right into the Leth bridge district with the frank of Con- servative M.

Congress- man Sherman was little known out side iiis own state, New York. Today Sheriiiiiii is a household word in the United States through his candidacy for the vice presidency. Sburman was the name worn by many a prominent man of the past in the United States. Taft may have been nominated through the influence of Roosevelt but if he gets to Washington he will be pretty certain to boss the show himself. The Baptists are arranging to mak it as comfortable as possible for thei friends during the Dominion Fair a Calgary.

It was de- cided to take the matter up and cir- culate the petition as widely as pos- sible. The Field Grain competition was discussed and will be carried on ag- ain this year.
