MCTOR1A DAY; MONDAY ushers in what is peihaps, the most popular of the -sear, in that it comes at a period when the daj can be spent in the open air There is a happ-s association be- t-neen the name bj chichi it is celebrated, and tlie scasou of vear in Aich it occurs this hme we are looking forward to the fruilion of hopes m our joung crop resulting in a liountitul harvest And so the ,peuod of an nual prospeiitj which a rich spells may be said to started on its wa> The reign of Victoria, in its dajs, 'he tlireshold of prosperih at which Canada stood The hope ahead has been more lhan justified b> the frui- tion which has come to us since that time Vic- toria has for this reason, a particular senti- ment winch will continue to be shaied in bj the generations of Canadians to come In its annual recurrence (lie name which tlie hohdaj is known Avill serve to preserve in mind that attachment which rivets the Imperial bond But more than tnat it -will remind us, in- asmuch as self-government" in the Dominion dates iiom Victoria's reign, "e s'e bound as a drag to the chariot w'heels of Empire, but aie free to help it in our own win along the path of greatness THE FARMER BOY. BLil of a total of 44 bojs in -attendance at the High School, onl> one has made up his mind to be a-farmer. This seems truly strange in a piovmce where agriculture is the uppeimost suL' ject in the minds of leaders, anrl it emphasizes the great need for training along agricultural lines. The average city boy has an idea, through non-association with things the farm has nothing to offer him hut drudgery and endless toil. He does not appreciate "the brighter side because'he does not.knew average has been pointed out by experts on this subject, takes as much interest in live pony, or piggy, as he does in (he furbe- lows of inconsequential value 'which' the.: city offers, if he is given an opportunity to claim them as his very own, and watch them grow and de- velop under his own. care and feeding. If these "tilings could in some way be brought to his at- tention, there would he need for a special corps of teachers to educate the boy back to the city. If the broad expanses of fertile virgin soil lying at our doors are to be brought to their maximum pf producing power and utility, the public schools (will have to find some way of showing the boys arid girls the bright side of farm life, and edu- 'cate them back to the land while the provincial agricultural schools arc educating those already there to remain, by carrying the gospel of scien- tific agriculture to their doors. The day when a farmer is looked down upon .is past and gone forever, and the boy. who thinks that Because a tiller of the soil wears cow-hide boots and overalls he is not entitled to recogni- tion from the well dressed city man, is sadly astray. The "farmer" of today is the most rs- nian in the community, and to be able to talk crops, weather or soil conditions intelli- gently, is the height of many a city man's ambi- tion, a point in support of this claim. THE ASSESSMENT REDUCTION. THE Herald is pleased that the commissioners have acted on the suggestions put forward by a large number of the leading-property owners f and reduced the assessment per cent, dd- ing away with Hie increase of-that amount made weeks ago, and putting; iHe assessment on Hie 1913 basis. Though Mayor kardie stood oul for the increased figure, believing, that he hac very good reasons for weight ol public opiniuu was against him, am! we fetl sails lied the .other two commissioners were perfectly justified hi taking issue with him on tlus import- ant question. x Nor do we think'an> serious results will ac- crue from the decision to place the assessment at tlie lower figure. The increase was not justified jy conditions. On that ground the Herald oppos- ed the increase at the time it was made, and we "eel confident that'the credit of the city all the better from Wednesday's decision. Incidentally the Herald would urge those rate- jaycrs who feel that their assessment is inequit- able, in spite of the decrease of ten per cent, not :o take their appeal to the courts. Though we lave made no very thorough investigation, we 'eel that our assessment is inequitable in spots, and though hot convinced jet in our own minds that the system of assessment is at fault, we aibw there is a suspicion that it irught be >roved. The suggestion has been made that a business men be appointed ycsUgate tlie whole matter of assessment and re- port their findings to the council The sugges- ion has our liearty approval It should, if the takes''it's task seriously, 'remo-v liariy of the reasons for appeal when the 1915 assessment is made. In the meantime, if those who feel.they still lave a grievance, will he satisfied with the gen- eral ten per cent, reduction, they the commissioners from further embarrassment at a time when they need all the aid citizens can give them in solving Ihe problems of the cit} administration. The episode which resulted in the reduction the assessment is interesting in that it caused the first division of the council since commission [overnmcnt was inauguialed ago It s a healthy so than 1oo much oman- mity. It shows that the commissioners are do- ng their own thinking, which is a good indica- ion that they are on the job. OUR POINT OF VIEW English suffragettes are getting worse and worse.

The Cadet Battalion is grow- ng to be an organization to be proud of. We can almost understand militant Col. Sam's military madness when we see the local brigade parade. Drydocks was the .dish in Commons yester day. At that rate it's about time the legislators down Oltavv i waj were putting away their books 'or the summer holidays That sforj of drills being on the ground in the Coutts country was just about as sound as some of the oil stocks being peddled to the 'un- wary these days. Nevertheless'Coutts sees vis- ions of greater things ahea'd.
