Phone iS14: President Tbry Addressed Meeting There MagTath, Nov. 12;-Yesterday morning Magrath had the extreme pleasure of entertaining Cor a few hours two of Alberta's most distinguished educators, President Tory of the provincial university, and Chief Inspector Uoss, of ^Edmonton. They arrived from Cardston on the moraing trains, and proceeded immediately to the public school, which they carefully in,specte'd. They were shown the Ijuildlng and enuipmcnt' by Chairman .lames Stacey, of the school board, and Principal VVoolt of the public school. At 11 o'clock a public meeting -was held in the auditorium of the school, addresses being given by. the visitors. Chairman Stacey was in the chair, and when the spacious hall wag well filled with school children and townspeople, he introduced the clilef inspector. �� Mr. Itoss confined his remarks to only ten minutes, hut he was followed with interest. He spok� in a remlnls cent' vein, contrasting, the condltldtis of Southern Alberta iu the early days, when .the southern towns were In their infancy, to the well-settled and highly developed section of today. Me had seen this marvellous evolution trans-l)irc In the preat west, and in the expansion education was not overlooked. It Imd grown with the country, and today Alberta has an educa tlonal system second to none in the wotW. He spoke highly of tho ex amusement; of the poor to be taxed IN geriviany Berlin, Nov. i;!.-The . gover-iimi'iit has now- decided to t;ix llu: ponjile's chiefest nmuseniout, the moving picture shows, and also to raise tli'J tax oh brewery malt. There is to bo a tax of iVi cents on a 5 cent moving ]iicture,ticket, and as high as .T cents on a -'5 cent ticket. ��This has create-d ii .stcrm of protest, especially among the Socialists, and tho moving picture proprietors are afraid of a boycott which wiir ruin tlifiir business. Tho Socialists declare tliat the tax will all fai Ion the Consumer, and are bitterly arraigning the government for taxing the only amusement which the poor people can atfc-rd .to'-indulge in. forced GRAFT "What's tliat terriblo-light going on over there?"

International Home Purchasing Contract Company, Limited LETHBRIDGE OFFICE; Suite 1 Dominion Block Phone 1507 cellcnce of the "Bchobl building and the efficiency of tbe teachers, . Dr. Tory -The main address of the meeting was delivered by Dr. Tory. This is the president's first visit to the southern settlements, and he stated that he was agreeably surprised with the wonderful transformation that had taken place Insp, short a time. The doctor pTpved himself a most agreeable and fluent speaker, and with his concise manner of presentation, coupled with clever sallies of humor, he held his audience fully in his grasp. He prefaced his remarks with a few nice (lompllments to the people in the work they had done along educational lines, not omitting the teaching staff, who were sharing a public burden with loyalty despite their small remuneration. Taking up tho main topic of his address-the need of education-(Dr. Tory said that a trained mind in tho twentieth century was indispensable to the individual who would rise above,tlie commonplace. In the matter of schooling It was sometimes thought that the coun-try child was handicapped by reason of his residence in ttte rural districts, but this was not so.'"Out of the Uhle, proverbial red school house, said the speaker, had come the'makers of Canada and the fpunders of her strong clean public life. And who will fill the plaees of the present leaders of our Industrial and political and professional life? In 25 years Canada will need 100^000 men to 1111 positions of trust, and the trained mind will be called into the service of his country in Its njany phases to help in the l-sadershlp and conducting of the country's activities. It Is the man with the intellect as well as the hand h\al will be entrusted with the responsl �bllltieB of national enterprises and 1-n-stltutlon. The schools of Alberta, continued Dr. Tory, offer at home the opportunity to any ))oy or girl to acquire this essential training of mind. AVhen they have linished the public school give them a high school course and upon the completion of this course send them, If possible, to the provincial iraiversity. It lias been demonstrated that tho broader the. education, all other things erjually developed, the greater the earning power. The Alberta uuivorslty was started four years ago wiili four professors and thirty students, and today there are twenty-five instructors and an enrolment of 27."i-an educational growth unprecedented in the history of the Dominion. On resuming his seat Dr. Tory was warmly applaiidod llfchop Harkcr andphairmau Stacey made brief addresses, and the nifeting was con eluded by tlie sinKing of the national anthem and benediction by Mr. Woolf, principal of the school. CRANBROOK VETS NAME OFFICERS ORGANIZATION GETS OFF TO A GOOD START-REGULAR MEETINGS Craiibrook, B. C, Nov. 12. - a meeting of the Cranbrook Veterans was held at the Royal hotel last ev-^ cning, for the purpose of appointing officers, and other general business. Lieut.-Col. .James Mackay, R. 0., (organizing officer of the Veterans Brigade, Fcrnic), honored the company with his presence and acted as cliairman during the meeting. The first business was the election ol ol-ficcrs, and Mr. Thos. Caven, M.L.A., was unanimously elected honorary president; Mr. .1. G. Mitchell wa� elected president ; Mr. E. Elwell, 1st vice-president, and Mr. S. Blower, 2nd vice-president. For the positions ol Adjutant and Color-.^rgoant, Mr., B. H. Short and Mi;. .1. Wood were duly nominated and consented to occupy the positions The acting secretary, Mr. Webb, and acting treasurer, IMr. B. 11. Short signified their willingness to continue and were linaniniously elected. A discussion then took place to decide on what evening the Brigade should meet and it was unanimously agreed upon that the first Saturday in every month would be most con venicnt. The by-laws for the association arc being drawn up and will be presented to the members at their next meeting for approval. Col Mackay in an interesting speech drew attention to the lact that a Canadian soldier who has given his best days for tlie safeguarding of the Empire is ictt to get along as best he can after his discharge trotn the army, while our neighbors take every possible ciirc of men who have served their time by helping them into good cnvployment, and' when too old for work providing fine homes to live in. He gave instances of commissioned odicers he personally knew in this Dominion who were through ill health reduced to selling papers, etc., for a living, and although the facts had been placed before the government nothing had been done to help these men. He said he considered such a state of things was a disgrace to any country and ought not to exist, and pointed out that one of the main objects of this association was to (ind work for men who were out of situations and to help old soldiers who have fallen on evil times. Attention was also drawn to the fact that at 'Winiiipcg employment Made $630 in one month READ THIS:-.r Higlr River, l^ov. 4fcli., 1912.
