Its intention is to remove the inequalities of women am to give them the same privilege as those' enjoyed by men. In tho desire, however, to grant women those privil- eges which are claimed by those who speak for them, on the contention that they have the right to be placed on a parity with men, care should be taken, on the principle of equal rights, that they should not be exceeded. The new Jury Act, in the details so far given, gives ground for a certain consideration. Women according to it will not be forced to serve on juries unless they declare their willingness to do so. At the same time, as we understand it, in actions which con- cern women they will be given the right to ask for women juries. The allowance made in the making the service of women on juries not compulsory and leaving it to them the privilege of declaring their willingness, coupled with the provisions made for a jury of women I Do You Know?

According to a statement Issued by the Finance Department, tho total of revenue collected for cloven months of the fiscal your is roughly millions. As there is one more month to lular from (tho year ends on .March it is prolm'ole that the j I total for tho twelve months will not j I exceed 4oO millions. So that, a? suming that this year's revenue i no greater than last year's, tho est matesj brought to Parliament mea (and it must be remembered that th supplementaries are yot to come) a 1S20-21 deficit oMOO million dollars The following five items which rep resent outlays over which the Govern men has no control are well worthj of the weightiest consideration.

Interest public debt Pensions Soldiers' Land Settle- ment Soldiers' Civil Re-estab- lishment With the enormous public debt, the onus of liquidating which must fal on the people, they will have to look to rigid economies on the part of the Government, and it demands that there should be the same icrutiny and interest given to public expenditures as ar'e exercised over the private purse of the individual. THE DANGER OF THE PRESCRIPTION Citing the cases of the deaths of two people in Toronto through a in the case of actions in which women physician's error in the case of Neo- diars'ensl and Diarsenol, by giving one in mistake for the other, and to another case of death which occurred more recently through a patient tak- ing barium sulphurette in place of barium sulphate, this time the mis- take of the chemist who apparently did not know that the one he gave in error was a deadly poison, Toronto Saturday Night draws attention to what constitutes a public danger. "It would says Toronto paper, and in this it is right in its contention, .that it is "time for a com- plete revision of methods pertaining to therapeutics. From time to time the newspapers report cases ot error, either on the part of the druggist or the physician, which prove fatal to the patient. So common have thesa mistakes become that no one but a fatalist will now take what a. physi- cian prescribes and the druggist hands out, without tear and trembl- ing. Of course, if we all kept a stock of white rats and rabbits to experi- ment on before we took these doses more would probably escape an un- timely and. But such live stock is hot kept in the ordinary household." The Toronto Saturday Night is not far wrong when it says that unques- tionably the general use of Latin in medical terms and medicines is to blame for what have been tragical re- sults. It is not a matter for wonder, it observss, why more fatalities do not occur, in the doubt that the ordinary drug clerk is as familiar with, the lead language as he should be. Again, t remarks, medical science has de- creed, for some reason not under- standable to the man on the street, .hat one set of drugs, deadly poisons, should bear names intimately associ- ated with other drugs of an, exactly opposite effect, as in the case of Neo- diarsenol and Diarsenol, with the dire results referred to. It has to be admitted that in many cases the prescription the family physician is a jumbled hieroglyphic so far as the layman can understand it, and it is a matter of surprise that there are no more fatal mistakes than those which are brought to notice. This can only be put down to the care of druggists on the whole in making up of prescriptions. The fact, how- ever, remains that the using of what are particularly concerned, raises point which lends itself to gome thought. It would appear that, in the allowances made, that there will b the privilege accorded women t select their juries. This Is perceivable in that in the actions which allow women to ask for a jury of women and in the privilege allowed women to declare themselves willing to serve as Jurors, that should a woman desire a jury of her own sei it would nft he a difficult matter for her to ask cer tain women to declare themselves as being willing to serve on the particu- lar jury. This Is something which could easily happen, in that it can he taken there will be no particular rush on the part of women to, serve on juries, any more than there is the part of men. It is not altogether an agreeable function, and one which the majority of individuals would rather get out of it if possible than ba eager to avail themselves of. In the case of women it may be taken that 'this will apply more closely. If the Jury Act is as we construe it, would seem that there is a need of revision to obviate anything which may allow of selected juries in the case of women, which, it need not he shpwn, is contrary to the principles of justice in its application both to women and men. SOMETHING TO THINK ABOUT The ordinary Individual Is in the habit of not giving more than a pass- ing thought to governmental expendi- tures and revenue. It is a common habit to look on these in a detached way as concerning governments more than the individual. With this outlook there is the failure to grasp that gov- ernmental moneys are the moneys of the people and therein the individ- ual has a direct interest In the spend- ing of them and in the liabilities of governments. The sooner the" individ- ual and the people as a whole take a live interest in the expenditures, re- venues, and liabilities of governments, the better will it conduce to the well- heing of the finances ot the Dominion and of the provinces, in that these have a direct relation to the individ- ual in the taxes he will have to pay- in footing national and provincial bills.

SETTLE SITE PRINCE GEORGE STATION language as a medium of expression and with all the risks attached to the ent timo saddled with war debts amount of which, it may be, not vrvj "aCt'C0' be for have a conception of. In ln the ilUeresU magnitude of these as they T !T' the Dominion there may be a rudJ awakening to those who have failed .to take cognizance of things us they It lias been well observed by the of the Financial Times that if the estimates for 1921-22 tabled in the House at Ottawa had been brought to Parliament in pre-war years, the Government would have been regarded as mad. They show that this year Canada has to raise money either by taxation or borrow- ing to the tremendous amount of S1G million dollars, this not including 27 millions chargeable to capital ac- count. To get an idea of what this represents it is only necessary to re- member that it involves an outlay of more than seventy dollars for every man, woman and child in the coun- frr, that it is 300 por cent, greater sion with a certain mysterious learn- ing, but this is not sullicient for the retaining of what is a dangerous cus- tom. In spite of the status of nationhood attained by the Dominion, there are still men like Thomas Vien, the fed- eral member for Lotliiniere, who are chasing shadows which they con- sider stand against true autonomy. This is ,-v species oE political delirium tremens. Tin- bill of the Alberta Society of Spiritualists has met with opposition the Legislature.

As the Gym is a public being so Mr. Smith is deserving of the thanks of the public for his ef- ficient services during the past year. The new manager, Mr. G. S. Brown has accepted the position as part of his duties as a member of the school board, the Gym theatre being entire- ly under the control of the school trustees. It is their policy however to have this large hall open to the needs of the public and in thus serv- ing the public the duties of tho Gym manager often become rather burden- some. Mr. Brown, however, is a young man, full ot public splritedness, and will undoubtedly prove equal to the task. PAYS PENALTY AFTER FOUR YEARS PRINCE ALBERT, Mar.
