I have a pleasant recollection of the time I spoke in this city on the subject of agricultural education. The niglit was intensely cold; there was a fancy dress carnival billed for that date, not to speak of a theatrical company visiting Leth-bridge for that night only.

I must now leave tho question of support to tho consideration of this convention.
