Tho city may not be UK as but tho business men are equal in iho best of them and ably back up ehe publicity work. Considerable stress Is being laid o treo culture. Farmers seem slow t learn that trees have an hnportai relation to moisture ami its const) vailon. There is no part of Alberta which not feeling the beiivilt of tho cousu'c! Irs intluem'o in fta-t Is no[ oonlin to a province. It leaps Internationa harriers and hat; a message (or nuai ly every part of the earth. Tho death of Robert Ban- so slid denly will bring sorrow to thousand: who read his works with delight am were ever watchful for every production from his prolific pon. Rob HUT was not Canadian born bn was a Canadian by education and evei in all retained a deep interest in this conn try. Well Done, Saskatchewan IN A SPIRIT of splendid isolation stands the exhibit of the Province of Alberta in the exposition liuiid- 'ing, for, us the hostess of the occa- sion, the province is not taking a part in the general competition. AVith, ten- der prid-e it looks on the winning of the grand sweepstakes prize by tho exhibit of its sister province, an honor which Alberta achieved.at Colorado Springs last year. The laurels Alberta lias worn .she hands over to Saskatchewan, aud the unique honor is, so far at any rate, in the nature of a family heirloom. The Canadian northwest is still keeping by its own and exemplifies that no part its area is particularly blessed. It is a region where the 'beneficence of nature with regard to soil is 'widely spread: Our sister province hiis met with a recognition worthily deserved, and if hopes are raised in our hearts that Through her success tbe Congress might still be held in Canada next year who will blame us tor a natural desire. Should the aspirants for the honor from amongst our American visitors) capture the same, we shall not grudge it. But shall gracefully accept a sit- uation which merit makes pos- sible. Our rivalry is one of the friendliest, and nothing in the way ot" a selection for next year's Con- gress will remove those kind feelings which .the presence of our cousins over the border today has helped to solidify. The Roger's Reason I Winnipeg Free- Press) The llnniiltun Herald, express! a hope prior to tlht Maedonald elect ion for the return cf the Independen candidate, made tins wise reserva lion: "Hut is ii io bo feared that Mr "Rogors is too soro over the rcbtift got in Saskatchewan io let this "cou-stiiuency in his own iprovince "slip through his fingers." T An Encouraging Prospect O. THE FBDEHAL Minister of sheep industry, and the adaptability Agriculture we feel particularly- grateful .for his sympathy in the movement for establishing a sheep in- 1 dustry in Aiborta. Tho support pro- mised to the wool growers, in their -request for summer range for sheep, brings the fulfilment of the same half- way on tlw to success. The ob- stacle io ail industry which is the handmaiden to dry-farming once re- moved, the goai to what a speaker at one of the congress sessions ref-erred to as a permanent agricultural suc- cess becofes practically assured. Irrespective of the produce from their fleeces, the. fertilization which sheep render to the soil, bringing into jt the necessary humus, is one of the great factors which helps in the real- ization, of the lessons which are being taught today. i 'Time and again, the value of the' Tlie Sleeping Car Problem (Toronto News) The Grand Railway uses the Pullman brand of our, and the Canad- ian Northern railways run sleeping coaches of the same, pattern. There is much ground for iho criticism thnt the companies r.iisht better spend less money upon plush upholstering and ornate decoration nnd more upon mak. ing sleeping cars comfortable and sanitary. Certainly tho public would appreciate :t areaier amount of priv- acy and more fresh air per passenger. Compensations Ledge) Winter has its joys. The flies are gone, and the mosquitoes no longer present their bills. The laugh of the iceman is stilled, and the dust no longer blows across your Brussels carpet.

Then died centenarian in Chelsea hospital, Private 'Shon Ross, of the famous Black Watch, whojis a little drummer lad had advanced with roll o' drum down the slope of Waterloo when Wellington, standing high in his stir- rups ami waving his cocked hat, had iven h is immortal command, "The i whole line will Old Shon Ross, a Gael who came from Skye, was a favorite with Queen Alexandra ivhen Princess of Wales, and as a urivileged visitor at the diamond jubilee garden party at Buckingham ?nlace in ISiiT.

Then died also Admiral of the British fleet Sir Provo Wallis, bedridden and! eeble, though clenr in mind, hi his I J hundred and second year, who as young midshipman on "board H. M.

The admiral of the British fle and the Waterloo drummer were'ti sole warrior centenarians who passe away the last of their race 'before tli century dawned: Of Sou them Alberta to the same, have been ..proclaimed. The desire for es- tablishing it. is now here, and we trust ths stumbling; block in Its way win be removed.
