That denomination can look forward to having a church of which they can well bo proud and which will be a credit to the city. The uew church will be built on the corner of Duf- erin and Burdett main ront facing on Burdett. The seating capacity will be and provisions will bo made so, that gallery seating 200 can be easily udded. The plans have in view the removal of the pastor's study anc choir room to the rear, and to iit ii w t-h .the general architecture of the building. It is the intention to do this when necessary. When this i done tho apace occupied in tho pres cut plan by the choir room and pas will afford an iidditiona sauting capacity of 297. Thus with very little trouble and expense the seating capacity can be increased from 545 to 1042. Two exits will open on Burdett street. When it becomes mcossary to makejhe above changes a. third ex- it will on Dufferin street. Iu tho basement there will be a Sunday school room seating 380; lour cluss rooms, a library, a kitchen, storage room, a boiler and coal room nd two lavatories. The material for the building will be the finest of pressed brick vith cement trimmings. The founda- ion will be cement. Steam heat will be used throughout. "A beautiful electroier will be hung from the cen- tre of the ceiling. The auditorium floor has a fall o] 3 feet in 80 ft. The ceilings are vaulted and will be 34 feet high.

A GREAT FUTURE There is a good day coming when all the land in the vicinity of this city will be the home of prosperous fanners In recent years the devel- opment of the agricultural resources of this district has been remarkable. .Rut we arc only on the verge of it. Take for instance the Cameron ranch. which has just been acquired by the O. W. Kerr Co. It is not many years since a man who would have purchased that land for grain growing would have hauled into police court as a maniac. Hut 'times have changed. The Cameron ranch and every oth- er bit of uncultivated prairie land liavc in them wonderful possibilities for tho future. In ten years we wil not know this country just ns the people who left the country ten years ago would not recogrtize It n We have only commenced to develop and we have a great future in store. points out that at most coeducation schools girls are in the majority and the attention of the teachers is be- stowed upon them in proportion. "A girl matures earlier than a he says, "and at the age at which the two are educated together her power of concentration is gn-ater. Thus it happens in many clashes that the na- ture of teaching is determined by the requirements of jrirls, and, as there is an irrepressible tendency for the minority to imitate tho majority the become an inferior copy of the girls, acquiring girls' gentleness and sensitiveness but not tho proper strrntrth of either sex.

In November he had worked every day, fourteen days, and had less deductions of 55.50, coming to him. This 136.50 was his back-pay and no demand had been j made for it until Mr. Mucleod, coun- sel for the defense, had presented an order signed by Phillips on Feb. G, the day of the preliminary trial. John Jacobin, a Frank miner, told of sellini: the prisoner a stove, a and kitchen articles on Oct. 14 or 15 for ?IG or Accused had said boarding was too high, and that he would batch or send for his wife to Mr. Roxford in his evidence told of Phillip's renting a shack in October.

Gould May Have Religious Marriage Rome, May of the greatest ifficulties in the way of a marriage between Prince Helie de Sagan -and Mme. Anna Gould, is the fact that he Catholic church, not recognizing he divorce, has refused to annul Mme. Gould's first marriage. The prince is determined to marry Mme. Gould and to this end he has decided to turn .Protestant. This will enable the couple to be united by both civil and religious marriage cer- emony. Jf the prince remained a Catholic there could be no religious ceremony, and consequently his wife would not be accepted by society.
