M ARTIN WOOLF and John Par- rish are, estimable citizens of the Cardston constituency, hut the fnct that the former is a support- er of a progressive government, will warrant the electors giving him their support. Mr. Wooif is well fitted to represent the conitituency. He has always in- terested himself in public affairs. He is well Informed and can express Ins lucidly and convincingly. There is nb question'.but. that-he will rank iiigh as a debater on the floor of the, Wooif the Man to Elect Legislature. Cardston should see that he Is elected by a good majority. H-a carried the party convention and has the support oE a united party. On 'the other hand the Tory nom ineo. was switched into the candidat UTC. was not given to him by the party convention but was .dealt ou by a few party leaders, ivho turned down coldly and bluntly two men, who had received more votes than Mr Parrish. The latter is the candidate of a few Tory dictators from outside the riding and not the' choice .of a free and untraraelled convention. If the Provincial BtruoUoii occurs predicted tha rolloi will mil dUtrlbutal through out the province. The south will have throe, the north and the centre one.' A man named Brydlo halllui! from B. 0. attempted to got In on the land rmh without (ho formality of lus. His name being Drydle the cops had no dlfllciilty In checking him. A Taber minister Is forccil to resign on account of tho stnrvatlon salary ho Is given. It Is a crying shame the way ministers are paid but very little Im- provement can -be expected until there la a union of tho churches. The officials of the First Baptist church have have extended a call to Professor Mode of Brandon. If the Professor, acceuls the Baptists will have an excellent modo of doing things. For a town of its size Cardston has more substantial business blocks than any other town in Alberta. The busi- ness men have abiding faith In the town for they are investing their mon- ey in spliiudid structures. long ago the Tories. were be- rating the people in the Cardston dis- trict who voted for reciprocity as dis- loyal.

The: is too much competition amongst tl churches, BO much so in fact, thnt tl average layman is forced to conclui that each denomination is iiiibui with the idea that through it is th only proper means of gaining salv lion. Tho sooner the Protestan churches drop their petty i-ivalrie and practlcii economy of men an money the better it will be for th churches and the cause of Chrlstii ity.

This is what will be anxiously looked forward to ay prairie-dwellers, and which exper- ence alone will answer. Home Work H OMB WORK is the most arid, delusive, inhuman an-d incon- sistent thing that has ever "been perpetrated. Everybody knows that home work is diahoneit, and any- thing tending io dishonesty should be abolished." So spoke MT. George Locke, chief librarian for the Province of Ontario, at the nideting of the On- tario Educational Association a few days ago. The matter of home work for school children, has been the sub- ject of much earnest thought and dis- cussion among educators, parents and students fof many years. And while not very many would give expression 'to such strong and emphatic language as that used 'by Mr. Locke in the quo- tation given, there are many .who feel very strongly that the practice'erf hav- ing home work for children is wrong. Parents complain that their .children have so much studying to do at home that they have no time for play, for music and to help in the little chores they can do around the home. Chil- dren complain that they have so much I "work to -dp at home that they have no time for play. Hundreds and thous- ands of teachers see with sorrow their pupils coming to school day after day -With', lessons prepared who work at their studies, not eight, but nine, ten, twelve and often more hours than that day after day. Anyone who has any doubts on the subject can easily veri- fy these, statements. It is not right but the blame cannot be placed.upon the shoulders the teachers; th-e parents or the pupils as such. lault lies .In the education- al'system that tries to crowd the edu- cation of a life time into the few years of a chile's public school life. A mere desirable system would length-en the public school term making the course for each year include only such work as can reasonably be covered thor- oughly during school hours. The num- ber .of subjects studied need not be reduced; that would not be desirable, but the intensity of the study of these aubjecta might well be dismissed; It Is not that too many subjects are taught but that too much ot each is attempted. The course ot study should 'be so arranged that no child of public school should be compelled regularly study at.home! It ia a wrong principle not in accordance with the ideals of a 'modern educa- tion. Walt Few iChicago Tribune) Household hint: Don't trade your old furnace for a new icebox just yet.

Canada shall .d its own navy or contribute the price of several Dreadnoughts, as ad- rqcated 'by the "Imperialists" of Oh- ario and Montreal. A tlset unit he must, and will, have.'
