While there is yet plenty of 'time, it is wise to get the votes now rather than to wait till near the end' of the contest. It will be easier to get sub- scriptions now than it will be later on, when the ground will have been more thoroughly covered. Candidates should turn in their sub- scriptions as fast as received in order that the paper may be started to new subscribers at once. The certificates may be kept and voted any time de- sired, up to the last day of the con- test. Newspaper Ballots While it is advisable to put forth the most energy soliciting subscrip- tions, the newspaper ballots should not be When you ask an old subscriber for' the ballot you pave the way to secure a payment upon his subscription at "a future time.

Ireland, Nov. ordinary scenes were witnessed re- cently at the last meeting of the Roy- al University of Ireland, which was held iii the university buildings, Dub- lin, for the purpose of conferring de- grees. The undergraduates took pos- session of a portion of the large gal- lery and erwated so much uoise and disorder that not a single word that was spoken from the platform was audible in the hall. In the absence or Lord Castletown. Sir Christopher Nixon, the vice president, presided. The body of the hall was filled with visitors, principally ladies, and in the part of the gallery were lady grad- uates and .their friends. The noisy undergraduates hung from the gallery a big white Hag, on which were a skull and crossbones, and the letters, "R.U.I.R.LP." While, waiting- the entrance of the Senate the small of my back all the time that I SUNUOHT S-BOAI REPLY TO IMPERIALIST Kditor Lethbridge Herald: Dear I write this letter to express my thanks for the leading ar- ticle in Friday night's Herald in an- swering the letter written by "Im- perialist." I as well say we Liberals are as much proud of our great Empire as any Conservatives, in fact the Liberal party, by its wise policy in the past, has made this great Empire. I see by the tone of They help tht fluih MS letter Imperialist is against the Herald, because you have put before; the working men of this city the great speeches of the people's pion, David L.oyd-George, the present j Chancellor of the Exchequer. Every! workman should be proud of such a man who has risen from a poor lad to his present position as Chancellor of the Exchequer. He is the man who has dared to fight England's greatest enemy, landlordism. There is another remark in the let- ter of when he says there is little difference between the Liberal in England and the Conservatives in Canada. That is not -the case. Let us take this province of Alberta. We see the policy of the Liberal party here is just the same as in England. We also see by -the speeches of the so-called Imperialists that protection .will bring such good times to the people of England. It is nothing but a direct lie. This present gen- eration remembers the hard struggles for bare existence which our forefa- thers had to live under. -in.. the old times.

Sir James Creed Meredith pro- ceeded to read out the names of suc- cessful students at the honors exam- inations, but not a word that he said could be heard. Afterwards when he aproached the reporters to import in- formation he was assailed with a shower of rice and flour. Lassoing Vice-Chancellor The Vice-Chaucellor, Sir Christo- pher Nixon, then tried to deliver his address, at the opening of which, amidst deafening cheers, a-breadth of linen bearing the words, "Irish was suddenly stretched across the hall to eallery The further reading of Vice- Chancellor was rendered inaudible owing to tlie constant interruptions and noises. To the alarm of every- body in the hall-if. was then seen that the undergraduates had become pos- sessed of a long length of hose-piping. They failed, however, to attach it to a hydrant, and while the cellor vainly tried to make his ad- dress audible an. attempt was made to lasso him with the piping.

THE MAGRATH SEED FAIR Prize Winners at Show at the Garden City There should be far more interest taken in the Seed Fair than what was eviuce4 at the fair held here last Tuesday and Wednesday in the -as- sembly "hall. The benefits that accrue from fairs of this character are scarce- ly realized by the majority of farm- ers. They are far reaching in their results and if it had not been for the fair held last year, it is doubtful if the magnificent cup that was won by A. R. Bennett would have ever made its appearance in our town.

Hose Turned On The final scene eclipsed all others A large hydrant filled with water was brought into the gallery, and the hose pipe was turned on those below, drenching many before they could open their umbrellas.' There was a rush from the building, in the midst of which the heavy hydrant was hurl- from the gallery, and .fell on the I floor below with a great noise. Fortunately no one was injured, but the incident had the effect of quickly clearing the building of the comparatively few who had remained until that time. The last meeting of the Senate then closed with a final outburst of cheering, and yelline; from the gallery occupants. Many appropriate speeches were made, the speakers including the chief justice who in replying to "The Visitors" expressed bis joy at seeing so many people still "at large'" in Macleod. Supt. Primrose, R.N.W.M.P., in re- plying to the toast of "The Royal North West Mounted Police" referred ery nicely to his regrets at losing his "comrade" Mr. SUirnes i'rom his command. During their residence in Macleod both Mr. and Mrs. Starnes have made themselves thoroughly popular with all with whom they have come in j contact, and their numerous friends join in wishing them both God speed.
