Tickets Its' street; parade is prompt imd positive feature of the daily of thc 101 Ranch Wild West Show, which will be here on -July y. If you are not acquainted with this fame, resources, originality and gen- ius of the Milter ill-others, they are content for you to base your con- clusions upon the pageant which will traverse .tho principal of the city MI the morning. It is a fitting introduction to tho stirring performance which follow the show grounds. From the very nature and charac- ter of tho 101 Ranch un 'Jortaking, the parade is a radical de- parture in constituents and conduct from anything ever witnosse-l before. There is no vaudeville, no theatrics, uo make-believe and no disguise in the make-up of this typical western institution. The parade, thus, has nothing in common with the glitter ing and spangled figures and features which are annually familJar here. Every person and part of tho 101 Hunch parade, is of unci of cattle, corrals, and coyotes. Kv- ery person is n figure of unquestioned repute in the western world of dy supple physical endeaVor. livery', man is an admitted champion with lariat, horse or fire-arm or in other departments of ranch routine.

When there is a differ- ence of opinion in thc Conservative party you can pretty nearly ;ake it for granted that the rifle is ali right. unless the country was brought un- der cultivation, land was sold at with rebates for cultiva- tion. But the rush for land during the past dozen of years has changed B.H this. Prices have gone up by leaps and bounds the purchase of a quarter or half section means in most cases a. considerable cash pay- ment, or at the best a long, steady drain upon the annual profits of thc settler. The result of this has been a grum- ble loud and deep. Poor men strug- gling to make a home on the plains I watched with uneasiness the ra- pid in land vahies.

T1IK WHOLE BOY AT SCHOOL Mr. Ilutton has been chosen to un- dertake the bench work and a domes tic science graduate now of the staff will lie asked to supervise the work for thc girls. Thc superintendent is enthusiastic over thc .situation of this work. In his view it is unec- essary nnd natural expansion of the hand work that has already been in- troduced under the direction of the hoard. The idea underlying work the schools is quite simple, t is a cas? of sending the whole hoy to school and not simply appealing to his acquisitive faculties through thc exclusive traffic in books. Whe- ther it is in paper folding; cardboard work, cln3' modelling, basketry or carpentry, hand worV: has to be re- garded as a channel of expression for thc activity or" the child. The inter est of educatiomtfl philosophers hith erto has been too exclusively taker up with acquisitive processes and no suOicienttiV with motor and creativ activity nml expression. Thc concep tion of an idea is not enough, th boys' resource and ambition and in terest rmist be developed by execu- tive nnd constructive work. JTaniml raining is not industrial education but it is a kind of education that should put a man on to his job by ncreauing his resourcefulness. Tt is tho intention of the board to relieve Mr. Huluni a mrge extent iruiii actual teaching work in pcrrrnnship to enable him to correlate the draw- ing in the other forms of manual training. Mr. ITutton has already shown commendable energy and abil- ity in drawing and art work and the board have full confidence that he will develop suitable strength with regard to tho new responsibilitirs they are placing upon him. Tt is hoped that the equipment will be in- stalled nt the beginning of the full term.
