The Calgary Horticultural Society seems to be a real live institution. Today throughout the city meetings are beinb held at which manp yrom- inent citizens are to speak on mutters pertaining to the beautifying of the city. There is no doubt but what these meetings will awaken a great deal of intelligent interest in this most important problem. Their ac- tion is one that might well be fol- lowed by other cities., Lethbridge in- cluded.

Colonel, put rue down for whatever y' could well give considerable atten-1 think would be a credit to the tion. At tie present time it perhaps is not feasible for the government to take the work up as a public work, but it could be done by encouraging the fanners to plant trees along in front of their farms. The providing of suitable trees would not be a very great expenditure for the province if it should establish its own nursery. It would be a great encouragement to the farmers, however as they would be saved not only the expense but the bother of finding out which trees are best suited to their needs and of find- ing out just where to get them.. The cost of planting and keeping the trees is the greatest expense and would be willingly borne by the farmers uiider these conditions. The experience in other parts of the world goes to show that the pro- ductiveness of adjacent. fields has been greatly increased. The roads are more easily kept in order and the comfort of travelling promoted by shade from the sun and the absence of dust. There is no danger in this country of the overshadowing trees turning the roads into quagmires.- The protection of these trees could easily be placed among the duties of the provincial forestry department and expert advice and assistance gi- ven in the preventing of disease am- ong the trees and the destruction of any pests that might infest them. In this country, which is so barren of trees, the beauty as well as the usefulness of the trees will appeal to everyone. Right around Lethbridge beginnings have been made and though the trees are as yet small no one can pass the Experimental Farm or C. R- Daniel's farm without realiz- ing somewhat of the benefits that will come from these trees when they are larger. With some encouragement many would be willing to plant .trees along the highways and the re- sult would be beneficial for the gen- eral public as well as for the men who di9 the work. corps. Another good one was given by George Tate Blackstock, K.C., the famous criminal lawyer, as follows: "I have a friend, the high sheriff in a county not far from here, who had several odd experiences owing to the fact that in sending a prison- er to Kingston Penitentiary, he was obliged to fill in the prisoner's church connections, the denomination to which he belonged. "One day it was an Indian. 'What demanded the sheriff, with his pen over the blank. "The prisoner growled a surly re- ply. asked my friend again. "The Indian seemed disgusted. 'Oh' said he.

It will take se.veral columns of explanations from the baseball dope writers of Calgary. Lethbridge beautiful will come with a rush as soon as the weather fairs up. r The grass and flowers are just waiting to jump into view. -When, such a man as Lord Strath- cona supports the idea of a Cana- dian navy it ill behooves any Imper- ialist to say that the supporter of that policy are looking to .the inter- escts of Canada rather than of the Empire as a whole. Lord. Strathcona is an Imperialist of the highest order and moreover, he is endowed with an amount of common sense that is out of the ordinary. When there as no war going on in Central America the American work- men on the Panama Canal try to keep up the excitement by having a row with the natives. It must be awfully tiresome not to have a war of some sort down there. Who killed Etel Kinrade? This is the question that has aroused the, cur iosity of the general public.of a con- tinent.

Traveller was unknowingly rather too sweeping in bis charges of self interest against hotel proprietors. I wish to state in common fairness to Mesrs. Downer and Eckstorm, that, since the opening of the school au overflow building, they are the only ones who have given it any tangible support and hardly deserve to be charged with self interest. Whether 'Traveller" is correct or not in his surmises, I cannot say, but I do think that there is too little in- terest shown by the hotels in this; matter. The City is in no .way trying to com- pete with.- them and as soon as there is hotel accommodation in the town capable of handling the rapid, influx of visitors and settlers, will doubt- less shut up shop. Should self interest be the cause, as "Traveller" suggests it seems a very poor policy on the part of the hotels, for whatever benefits receive from them must naturally: re- dound to their benefit Thanking you for the space in your valuable paper.
