ESTABLISHMENT OF ..NISHT SCHOOLS rpBE ESTABLISHMENT ,of night I schools is something that- should deeply interest the peo- ple of this city. In this city of young "men there are doubtless hundreds- who are feeling their lack of educa- tion which is from .ac quiring' positions to wh'ich they oth- erwise would be entitled. There are many others whose native language, is not English, and whose knowledge try is very, meagre and imperfect. There are youths who have -been compelled .by force of circumstances to stop school in order to earn mon- ey. For all of these a properly con- auct-ed night school would ,be of great value. The school, board in previous years nas -made'-efforts to establish night j schools, but- the young 'men whom i-t!

This year another effort- be made to arouse the interest of those sr'ho should be interested and the Board has asked THE LAST INDIAN 'BATTLE FOUGHT: it 15 the prowl and well-founded boast of Canadians- that-the -Ti- j_ the language of their adopted conn- -irades Coracil in bringing: ___________3 ma.rfor rJlP worKinsrnieiL parrs of their Dominion, .and' especial- and- .received support or the .or matter before the if s. desire is- shown by a praines prosperous, j. not that, they ar sufficient peaceful, and their, inhabitants law- arctic region beyond Hudson's Bay.

BEING AFRAID OF TKE 'POL1CEM AN POSITION and duty of the po- iice in a community is one that is often misunderstood by the public and sometimes by 'the police- men themselves: Thfs misunaer-stand- ing-. is. unfortunately most prevalent But this, in turn, is largely the-fault of their parents. The first and foremost -duty of offi- cers of the law is to protect.

The child should be taught that the policeman is to pro- tect "im and his from the wrong that waom h-e ghould go in case of trouble or wrong suffered from anyone else. The child should not" be taught to link the idea of the police -with any his own -wrongdoing, but ra- ther .with his own right-doing with "the "wrong-doing of- others. there .a vac tract of conntry -whose soil tor lertiiity has never been sur- passed, and whose "climate is favor- able for .the "growing of 'gram and for the carrying- on other .agricultural pursuits.
