Any bettor relationships tliat may ensue must follow a desire attually to serve our own nelRbborhood. and fron\ that in a widenhiR circle, to help the province we live In. the lanil we live In. and the people we live with. The people who are hero at the same time that we are; theso arc the people wo are most concerned with; these aro the people who aro most concerned with us. Wo do well not to forget our ancestors; we do bettor to have posterity in mind, but wo do know to-day that they made no mis-lake when they made a wholesale price on these shoes and warm gar-uienls three y6nr� ago. even nlthD\iRh a tow orders do slip through to the department store In some distant place; tho department store that know not these young .fosephs with their coats of many colors, and their ehoes of many patches three years ago; tho distant department store that affects a tropical warnith towards the farmer when ho has money In his pocket and whose soul Is as genial as an Iceberg when the farmer is without funds. What Else? What else? Well, in this country of so many phases of rawness and now-nees it reiiulres a little hindsight and host to live well with our contempor- i a lltllo foresight too. to undertsand arics.

For why should the city boy, just because it wae his misfortune to be born lu a city, be doomed to spend all his li(o there, as the present writer was, when all his instinct and desire lay towards the land. Iieading of this arrtele and an\answe.r 10 it must be-based largely on theory, lint, fortunately, there Is ono community at lea.m In Western Canada that has done something in this way already, and a partial answer to the ciuestlon may bo made hy monilonlng 1 whoso only water clianuels gome of the things that the people of! scarce and far between. That Lethbrldge have done in this direc tion. Some people come together best under circumstances ot mutual prosperity; that is very easy, but these friendships do not generally go down very deep, and their true mettle is never assured without trial. The people In Lethbrldge and tho folks In the country began to come tor geUier In a time of rather serious adversity; the town had just begun to come to its senses after a real estate While the .!;eologlst3 were Instructed to survey the country for prospects for coal and gas and oil for the generations of the future, tho great movement of human beings was allowed to spread itself over a country werd they must have- water for their daily domestic needs, let alone for their horses and cattle, was an item that wa.s overlooked. As tinie wont on and na the farm animals increased the nec- ^ esslty became more apparent. The Board of Trade lursucd all channels of information on this subject, stirred up the government to direct their geologists to survey the country; got the matter taken a step farther by In- CAN'TBARTHESE SHIPSFRONI HALIFAX Request to Bar Explosive Ships From Halifax Scarcely Reasonable , duclng the government to spend some boom, while the country was in the | nioney to prove out t!ie evidence pro-ihroe.i ot the first development ot i aucod by the geologists' study; and great acreages of .craiu producing ; the encouragement given by that Inlands.
