EARL KIRKHAM 111 coniparing: tlio solaivs of Onlar-ip fiirin life with tln' inversions that are thrust upon those whu h'.ivo stakiHl tiK'ir chances for nm'.-'riu. things oil tho productiveness of the western prairie it is i>crhnps �vU lo appreciate tlio fact that the east has passed the point whore imturo givas place to art, while the west is scs.r-cely yet aware of its own priniiltive iiess, I*crhaps this idea may bo il -lustrated by the experience of a iimn who , went joyously iiack to tho scones of his childhood, relishing even tho anticipation of again casting a bent pin into tho cool retreats of eager trout ami then exercising Die extreme capacity of his rude tackle in the hor>*) of landing a two-pounder safe upon tho mussy bank. Fear -ful hwt forethought of a renewal of bis youthful delight were leading him beyond the bounds of realizatjou ho. suddenly checked his imagination. VNsrmitting it to pictuiv only thi-.sweet meadoviand imthcd in Juno sunlight, only the abandoned curves of the brook as it babbled on down past the willows into the allurin,; wood. Hut steeled ns he was ag-jaii^t memories too roseate, ho could not forbear the impulse of j>n iinswering whistle to the unwary quuil, nor could he stop his ear.od things to suit her awn unpicturcsquo convenience. An'l when I say that the we�t is still primitively picturesque, still char actoristically natural, I moan that with some exceptions, the grade;! ioatleKs every person has . h.M'.'d I some account of the famous fu-.'.fie ! chicken. .\s the season for cue I'.'l-ing of this most edible game i pen.s to�lay, September 15, it might i-it lie the law to say aoni'.'lhijig about a sport that in the west is widely regarded as intensely ciip-tivattiiig .

With the opening of the soa9:m l-j-day, every town from Winnipeg to the Kockies will gix-e out its quota of huntsmen, and the unsuspicious Mrds will fall thick and fast. Vhr-real 'sport." goes forth fully bo ftocked for the occasion, with k�ath-er leggings, duck jacket and peak i-ap, not forgotting the eag�>r tlojrs and bursting hamper. It means it day of much tramping, of groat tigue, of some disnppointnwivt. and of sufficient ex|>ense. Uxit not f.o with the fanner, for above all others, the one vho tills the soil ami tempts the game into his own -on-fines is the one who g�Jls the cream ofthe enjoyment aflordotl by th's roj-nl sport of the r�rairio. The farmer waits for the cool i.if evening, for the last hour of the western twilight. He does not i\V for dog or shooting clothes, Dui drives forth in ck>mocrat or sur.ov, with other members of the family well primed for the occasion. He knows near enough ju.-it where lo go, for during working hours ho has markvil tho favorite fcctling groni PRESS GRiNDINGS. Cranbrook � llcraltl: The iHindus tvill hardly flnd an abiding place in Uritisli Columbia, even if he is a Urilish subject. In tho first place he comes from a climate and a country that never had a working man. people cannot work because they never did. And what is moro-they will hardly prow a competitor to the white laborer, as tho Chinaman is. What Canada wants in a laboring itcople that will nsniniiilnte with tho white laboring people, wii; be white in their customs and -their habits, will Im> one of us. Those kind nf iiK>n will furnish tho foiiiwlation f )r tho greater Canada. IJANCri BANCK IX .\l!l/0\A. Waitini*- Turns for a Waltz-.Men lh> . WnllllowiT Si lint. Magrath Pioneer: To wtitch a dance in Magrath is pretty near.y responsible for the following; "IXiiic-ing is hugging set,to music." The correct form of dancing with regard to tho relatiw portions of tho dancing couple, is being styled, "Old lashioijotl and out of date." It nmy iw but' it is niost certainly tlio most gvnieel and ladylike way of conducting one's self in tho dance. The presence of litjuor-tho smell of taint ed breaths and the v-itness of unsteady limbs are otber dcplor^-blo features. We want not,to bo classed with tho or guilty t>f hyper-criticism but it reaily docs appear that tho time has come when sohk!-thing decisive shouki lie done to ivmetly tiiese things und in a gen -eral way ivi'orin the �laiice. of Various broods. Thus coinDinn-a delightful drive with tho .'irtJu^r delight of taking game, he leaves the tniU and canters leisurely across stubble between ."stooks of goUKn grain. There are no fences to take down, and few rules tr.'.'i-pass to ignore. Tho noTghbor's fu*l'i is as free as an eastern'waste, whih' unbroken prairie is rocogni/^ii i,s a common huntlbg ground. , j IIIF. RULES OF lilE O.VMK. The farmer well knows that, at sunset the chickens attack the �to.jKi for their evening meal, and Ibat then also the test of a man's sk.i1; at the trigger is greatest, lie s i rr sue their meal unp�rturb.Ml. \>'ii' n within gunshot of the a.oM Unhorses are reigned in and thos^^ wno have gunsali^t. The cnic t.uis s'',| eating and narrowly rog.ard iio in trudera. To take a pot t > f the rise in order to got as many ai possible sitting, is unsportsmanlike, except, as in, tJie case of tho close season, the household is short of meat. The correct way is to wait for the chickens to rimi and then shoot. If more than one latl with one shot it is aot the most desirable thing, for it shows that the shooter cares niorc for slaughter than for markmanship. The- methoi of higher civilization is to single out one bird and shoot twice if the iirst doM hot bring him down. liut if the first shot is elTective it is possible to get stiii another bird with tho other barrel. As the chickens Keldoiii all rise at onco. an agile person will sometimes reload enough to drop four or Ave out of a bevy of ten or t�"clvo. There ai-e till six more left for another occasion, or if darkness has not .'.et fftUen the rig may l>c driven on and the chickens aroused onco morcfroni he spot where they alight forty ods ahead. Having gatheiwi his game, the fanner aiul his fullowin.,' drive ntorrily home, ami to-morrow, when dinner is announced, thef' will bo ample pi-oof of the fttness of these things, Besides chicken;�hootlng there are other characteristic sports of tho prairie; for insiahce, the opportun -ities nfTordwl for .comfortable duck-shooting. But that is worth.v 41 separate chapter. CHAMHEnLAIV'S COUGH REM EDy ACTS OfS NATURES PLAN The most successful medicines are those that, aid nature. Chamajerlain's Cough Remedy acta on this plan.

It is understood the census Aguros will show a population of 185,000 for Alberta; 880,000 for Baskaicho-wan and �lic but not to the opposition of the real spirit of Uii> cabinet." This is a strong beginning and wo expect to tind sonn.' -thing in tlie balance of the Icttor to ju.stify it. But the onl.y semblance of a charge that Mr. Roliert -son makes is that "tho High Uiv.jr constituency was coinplololy ignorc.l by tht' excufsion and her intelligent electors slapped square in tho face." �ts a matter of fact, stops of con-sidciablo leng'th were nuwie at tho places lieiwcon Calgary anil llftcleod und an opi>ortunity given to look about any of them. Ucp reseiitatiws of the various municip-alillcs acconiipanied the train down to Macleod, many of them staying with the party during the trip out the Crow's Nest Lino. Ample opportunity V'fts thus given to -le.-the particular part of the province that Mr. Robertson represents and to have its resources explainctl. Mr. Charles Clark, the editor of 'Ir. Mr. nobert.son's home paper, the High l{ivor Times, was most as -siduous in doing this. If a longer stay at any of the towns in the High River constituency had been desired, thore is no doulH that '.f such a request had Iwen preferroil the arrangements wouKI havo been altered so that it could have boon acceded to. But even if High River hafi been slighted, what ara w the horses to any old kind of wagon and .sing out. 'Tjot's go to a dance. Who shall it be. Larkin's or Andre's, or Old l'ete'.s'?' We wore just soleclin' our hosts. ''Vou .see, in that country wlion the boys want a dance real bad tlu'j-just pitch on somebtxiy who's got a good si/.e o'clock or so, and then we'd go and stir up the folks that was going to entertain us. If tho lights were all out we'd just do a Mttlo firing into tho air, and that would liven things up a bit. Then when they'd o|icn their windows we'd toll theiri wv'il come to havo a daiico.
