It is u national institution, absolutely needed the Stale. It should not be that tboiie who have, once placed their htitdi on the plow (kould be forced, unwllllnj- ly, by exigencies of inodcrn day life to" look back. Thoro Is f duty which requires to bo performed, and that Is to preserve, tho Church as. a profession In which its men are able to fulfil the duttoa and obliga- tions of everyday life. OUR POINT OF VIEW "Swat tlve.'fly" is a slogan of the Ottawa Boy Scouts thio year. 'Lelhbridge scouts should .copy the idea niul'play a part in protecting the public' health. Fred Forster is making good as Provincial License Inspector. This is just" as wo expected.' Forster ig u mjiti who does .things and does them well.

It is hard to understand the ac- tion of the city solons. lt Seemingly, they are anxious that Lethbridge should be a beautiful city, and yet they put a higher-price on the water! make the-treeB and lawns of the private citizens flourish and become the greatest asset of a beau tiftil city. Fine lawn and trees do more to give people a good'impres- sion of Lethbrldse than probably any- thing else. Water should be furnish- ed at as low a price as possible, M'en at a loss if necessary. A Lethbridge Need T ETHBRIDGE NEEDS a coM I storage warehouse m 'order to encourage mixed the district. Now Is the lime for some enterprising flrm to' go into the 'com- mission business, build a cohl storage warehouse-and buy the products ot ths farmers in the south. A lot o[ butter and eggs ivoula be' raised amongst our, farmers .If Lethbridge provided a stable market. However, the farmers claim the market is never certain. Some weeks the demand is goad and the urice satisfactory, while other weeks the contrary Is the case. LethbrHge could supply many west- ern cities with poultry, eggs and but- ter. All that is needed 'is the cold storage warehouse. The opportunity for the develomnent of such a busi- ness is here and a wideawake man or firm should seize it.

This, in the wording of the cir- culars to be issued, with the object that "to secure the right men, the must at least provide them a Jiving-subsistence." -At. the present tiine'the scale of salaries of the clergy 'in the diocese range from IfinO to per annum. The maximum salary be 'ing paid to priests ten years in holy orders. The other is from nearer home; and relates to the a Meth- odist minister, of Roy. -H. H.'Cragg, for reasons given by hlmsolf.

There are those who will that the plane of the ministry is such that it should not be the medium of attracting men purely through a com- mercial poinfof view. This, however, is beside the 'mark, -for what is really needed is that men who adopt the pro- fession of the gospel should have ihe means of livelihood, and be in a posi- tion to fulfil their duties not only to their congregations, but to their whes and The Church does not in these days call for martyrs.
