The denoe ho far swjnis to leave no soubt as to their being a beet combine the teneral testimony being that llMf� is iio competition vhatever among buyent. aitd that ns for. as export cattle ai^ concerned there is in reality only one touj-er. There is little doubt, too. but what there is an agreement between t ha . |^rg�ia various sessions of the commission. The appointment of Dr. ilewliurii as a member of tliib first Provincinl 'Board of Health for Alberta is a tribute to the high standing of the doctor in the mctKcal' profession of this province. We question whether any medical man in Alljorta is belter known and more gpnernlly ifcog-niaed as a skilful physician and surgeon than Dr. :|Iewburn, ami. if all the inentlJers of the new board are of the same type, the health of this province will be well guarded. fofriKgr/ Children do fliH t'eiHiM to school in any great numbefs b^ore Septentber first and what Hitle work is accomplished must bt>on, knowledge Ihot Work doiyo- ni\ist be roiwatotl, those 010 the fonturos of the neturning teachers outlook on the thin!

It is nuestionablc, hov.-ever, whi^tlior the loss of revenue is suHicient reason for opening school uiutor such unfavorable circunwtances In other provinces, the towA and city schools have two months vaca -tion and why not our city schools? Having hud several years of ex|ier -ieiice in this lino and knowing somewhat whereof he s|waks, "the dominie of the Lcthbridge HernW" submits the question to the local school board for their serious consideration. Miss Kutherine Hughes, of the staff of the lOdnion-ton Hulletin, has ccn-tributooy ami the contributions are well wcrlh pre-.sorving. The day of the good old cowbo.v is near an end in this prov-incL- on account of the rapid farm -iiig dcxvlopnveiit that is proceeding throughout the country. The peo.ple wil,l part with picturesque and jovial characters with sincere ivgret but not more so than the boys will forsake the free and bracing life as riders on the plains of Alberta. Uratal Macter Sproule, of the Orangemen, groans about S>ir Wilfrid lAurier making a call cn the Pope, whllp in Rome, and the Calgary Newa wonders whetlier Sproule would vtew the walls of Iterry were he in Ireland. Ha matter what, the decision of the court may lie in the Emnierson case the fomter Minister of Public Works might �s well content himself with tha, fact that his i-eturn to public life in A cabinet position at least is an impossibility.
