Now that the war is over tlie Prb-Jvinolal,.Government will be expected fl to carry out Its program of creating more land titles offices in the^ror-i?rc^t While the. war lasted, the gov-Ivernttent was not troubled about the S ^stahllsbment of new offices, though iiii ^ihe/need existed all the time, in the i rs^ixtreni& muth at any rate; ..... *i Itfsii a great Inconvisnience to the |iwhi9l� south to transact land titles �^*ft8fi* - with Calgary. V There should she' ;n office at Lethbridge so that Hwrf^tonn of business" can be ffahs-;j;iSio|�d,,e�i��dJiiottaIy.,.. v . i^e centralization system in this -^.dvi^tage Of Calgary and Ed^omon. ---^^^^^ S'ce to pa^ 5^ro*ince has always worked to the SOWElZlOMf On''' CANADA'S WAR DEB;! ^.Canada's ,.wat debt will be heavy, but it will be much lighter than most countries. -It is pointed out that Ger>' many'a war loans per capita to date amount to 1406; BrlUin'sl- to $8^; Austria's |2d2; Pranfce's, |171; Auil-tralla's, �137; Huuiary'a, 3107; the United StAtes. $97, and Canada's $93. j'Indeed, Holland's mobtllzaUon loans alone amount to over f44 per capita. To be sure the burdens on all countries will be heavy, but "in the kingdom of the blind the one-eyed man is King," and in this,case Canadians at worst will be the "One-eyed Man," because our war debt la considerably less than that of others, and our ire-sources iriiialcnlably' more per capita. P. C. Larkin, a prominent Torohto business man. In a letter to the press points out that. It will, I think, be reasonable to assume that Canada in the future will progress In population as the United States did from the time they possessed a population of seven millions. In that case it Is fair to imply tiiat in-twenty-five years Canada will pps-sess a population of fifteen niilllbns, which would "cut down our per capita debt by one half. , This is q:ii*e aside from the probability '>t our onetalcs paying dur total war expendituri. to our capacity for production: \ ; ia 1900' Canada produced 56 million bushels of wheat; in 1917 she produced. 23^1 mtllioa b^Shels. and only ten per cient.^''of our ars^e lund in the X^rthwest is under cultivalioa. jhst as the relative^ valne of money has ^or'centiMes been shrinking, so will our debt as we pay interesi and principal (n produce. In the thirteenth century a bushel: ot i*heat could be bought for sevehpence^ a cow for ten sbllllnga, a'sheep^-tor a shilling and sixp�ince, while a laborer's wage was th.reej>ehce per day. In 1500 the price of an bx was 22 shillings; that of Bisheep two shillings and fourpence, and'the wage of a laborer sixpence a day. The.products of our labor will trahtiriue to ei^tmce in-value in their relsUoB to gold, and I take It that the debt in twenty-five years will thus automatically reduce itself, becanae FOUND HUSBAi With Wife and Children All 111 * -Sad Case at ' Taber H^'iSoTeriiments seem to think that these places xrei the centre of business, and ^(^ledge'-And that aU other tbwaa land fltie'ii/in Alberta are of no par tie- ias;;>>fh�7 spread them mbont, eaab-a^Oiii'pioplt to ixmsess as don at hi^ AMKMMtMo, these important re- its Interiafr-Scno i�Cy the debt itself.

The province had been divided into three districts: Northern Alberta, with headquarters at Edmonton; Central Alberta with headquarters at Calgary and Southern Alberta with headquarters at Lethbrldge and Medicine Hat. Northern Alberta collected the sum of $22,234,14. Central district (Calgary, $16,381.08. Southern distHct (Lethbridge, $18,-433.03; Medicine Hat, $5,361'.61), $23,-794.64. Government grant, $2,o0Q. The result is very gratifying and the officers orthe Knights ot Columbus have reasons to be proud of the' response ot the iAlberta people.
