"The Sacred Herli." l.'i.'and loen appointed principal of .Alberta I nUersity: We are glad to learn from the announcement of rreiiiier Uulhorforil of Alberta, that a I'roviiicial University is to l)e established in that province and that tVie preliminary organization is to begin shortly. W-e congratulate the Alberta government on securing a man jjossessing the wL-idom and o-x-perience which Dr. Tory will bring to his t.ask and we look forward confidently to a brilliant future for this new western university under his able leadership. That the Alljerta government in. tends to place its telephone system in every town in the province even is the Bell Telephone Co. is ofierating is indicated by the following statement made -by S. Kdwards, manager of the Provincial l^lephone system, to tho council at Wetaskiwin that tho building of an exchange'at Wetaskiwin this year would not be undertaken but that this matter has not in any woy esca|icd the notice of tho government and it will bo included in next .venr's programme. I will lie ideased if the people are s*o informed of this so that they will not tie up with the Itell Telephone Co. for too long a period." Another evidence of the people's ap prociation of the government Tele-phono system is found at Pinchor Creek where the exchange has 80 sub Bcril>ers. Pinchor Creek has less than a 1,000 population. The prices Ijeing charged at all exchanges in the province are $24 for business phones and $15 for residence. At the present time there anj O.^i places in tho province served by governroont system. At twenty of those thone are local exchanges and at the remainder toU stations. One of tho planks in his itlatform that Mr. Uordon paraded a ereiit deal before western [wople W!i.s that of civil sorvico reform. The Tovonto Star in a recent issue alluded to this fcatune of the Conscrvati i'e puiiny and then pointed out thai tho following of Mr. Borden In Toronto start to reform tho civil service cf Toronto by appointing as offlcsrs of their ward associa^tion cmployMis of the city of Toronto. Tho Star say.-] civil Borvtce rafonn should apply to officials of all goveminenta and XV. Borden cannot make much headway as long as the party are putting servants of the people ait the head of the party organization. Like fome other bring them to shaft b'ottom �tho>' are til do so.

Ho was also fair enough to say that the farmer was too often jealous of the apparent easy and often luxurious life of the city man.

The town and tha country have each a part to play in the economy of nation-making. Tlie chief diderenco between the farmer and the city man Is the condition of their boots. The farmer oh-jocts to blacking; the city man is fas . tidious in its use. If Principal Creel-^ man could work a change in this re*-poot he would undoulitodly bring the two classes nearer together. A farm or with a pair of well.polished boots could move anywhere in a great city without being conspicuous, since now a-riays his clothes aro usually passable. 1'his matter of a little diller-entx! in boots should not keep itheae apart. farming o|)era.tions aro good.
