Tnlns Irresponsible Journalism T IS WEttL to Know who it is who T IB sending information to the A press in Great Britain detrimen- tal to this country. The more so as what is reported is far from true. In making toil remirk we refer to an art- icle in. John Bull, entitled, "Canadian Emigrants, Beware." Here it is stat- ed "the coming winter will be the ,v.ry blackest time in the history of ithe Dominion." The harvest, we are told, was' a failure, Although it pro lUised veil, and-there will he more straw than grain. To quote the art- heads the grain did not fill, the destructive rust showed up in the crop all over the country; then came frost, which blighted thousands and thousands of acres, and now we have a despatch telling of a devastat- ing .cyclone with heavy .hall that swept away buildings, razed crops, and play- ed blue havoc all over the West." Here is exaggeration and untruths a vengeance, and for no purpose, except to keep up a reputation for sen- sationalism, which this journal pre- eminently caters for. It is doing Ca- nada a decided injustice, and it-is time the Dominion authorities.took steps to -put. an end to such calumiuations. Fortunately John Bull is a journal, is not token too seriously, but all the same these wild statements do not do much good. Some time back this very journal went so far as to de- tame the character of Canadian wo- men, It appears to have some secrel grudge against .this country. H speaks of it'as, "the idea which experience Has shown to be false. it states, "will not bo able cp meet their obligations to- wards the .traders who have to de- pend upon their.crops for payments.' Vet ,we know for a fact that .even the low grade 'Wheat with the pres- ent extreme, expense pC harvesting, owing to .the phenomenal bad weath er, but nothing, in the. way John Bull described, the price of 55 cents per bushel, with the average freight rate oC 13 cents as worked out, has ieft the farmer an .actual margin of 17 .1-2 per .cent... This, though not. so large a profit tbe farmer would wish for, .is .a. profit which leaves a ffiir amount or .money to his credit when all, thp. expenses of the year have beep, paid. Let the 'editor- o: Jouir djgesj: this fact, and for the credit, of .the veracity of his jour- nal, let him see .that statements made are fully authenticated. We would nvite Jiim ,tp Letbbridge. and possibly whec his .eyes, have been feasted with the ,signs, of progress, here, he will change his.sombre goggles for a pa.tr of spectacles when contemplating tfiis Dominion., We commend to bis notice also fact .hat the wheat crop of Canada this .'ear ran to over two hundred millions of bushels. came. In how many houses uro there flllerg or In how ninny, is tlio water boiled? We should vonturo to say that the percentage in Dnmll., There Is a careleHsneHit, and a placing of too much faith in tho purity of water and looked after by our public authorities. There Is not sufficient individual re- sponsibility. It may possibly lie the fault of the system of too paternal gov- ernments. We rely too much on hav- ing tilings dono for us. With regard to Ibis, it would bo well to note'that .while tho death rate from diseases which may be prevented by the sanl. tarinn, has declined considerably in recent years, that from non-contag- ious diseases is increasing. These are diseases caused by overwork, hard-living and indifference to diet. merely make mention of this fact to emphasise our remarks as to Indi- vidual responsibility. In those lion-: or chronic, dlsimmsn, tuero is no sanitary legislation. The Indi- vidual IB thrown back on himself, and. having nil things, so to spent, ordered for him, ho' liitt got Into the condition ot not .exorcising :loo much ponioiml thought lii tho nutter, ot health.

Let the lessons of the present epi- demic bo taken seriously to heart, and more care be exercised in the use of such everyday 'necessities as milk and water. OUR POINT OF Boost Lethbridge! Don't think about the weather. It's tho same everywhere, only a trifle worse at other points. Look cheerful, the mines, will soon start again. The miners will vote yea -today, and the reign of discomfort will-be over. Mayor Adams is coy. If Miss Leth- bridge wants him, she can have him. If not, she can have something Goode. Lethbridge business men who have felt pinch ot strike times never heard 'better news-, than that which was'wired from Frank on Saturday night. Trunk sewers, street paving and a street railway are but a part of the civic programme for 191S. Keep your eye on Lethbridge. A sufficient number of building plans are uow in process of prepara- tion for. 1912 to far outstrip the past two yeans.. And many more are to come. 'Get into line for the forward march for the making of bettor homes, better schools, better churches in the open country. "In the farming districts wo greater social opportunities for those who live on the soil, Aa bftBtp, of course, we need better production, bet ter roads, better ways of marketing, better methods of co-operation among farmers, and then on this foundation of improved material condition, we must .strive to .build higher, structure ot a full .nd'splmuil life for the men and women vfhb live on the farms. In this matter the cities can help and Bought to help, and Spokane shown its ability to take the lead in helping. But it is, of course, the "far- mers themselves who in the end must give us the lead, and the rest of us must turn and bick them up and their idearf successful.
