Box 679 Phone 1212 W 1TH the Ions winter evenings close at band, tbe qu-estion naturally arises, "What are ve goiug to do for reading matter to improve the No one will dis- pute the fact that the of good books is a profitable pastime for any- one to indulge in. and if carried on Intelligently. H is not, however, how much one reads that counts, as what .one reads, and right there is where moat people find thernselve-i at a loss. The remedy for the difficulty is to have does at hand a well selected library from which to choose. Read- ing good books then becomes a mat- tor of choice with, the individual, and the opportunity to hare access to a library is not to be lightly considered by anyone. But as very Tew people find-it witb- in tbeir means to .acquire a library, with a wide range of good authors, the 'best plan is to have a gpod public library within the reach of all. The Need of a Library matter of a public library has been broached to the people of Lethbridgfe, and bas met with some response. So far, however, nothing definite has been accmplished. The Board of Trade has passed a endors- ing tbe effort to secure a grant from Andrew Carnegie for the erection and equipment of au up-to- date library. There the matter stands. While the Herald does not urge up- i the people of Lethbrldgt; the ad- visability of accepting thfe offer, it does urge that some definite steps be taken In the near to make a public library in an ac- complished fact. The need is evident; 'he voice of the people will settle the matter; bring the matter to a head th'an and decide that before another year has passed Lethbrtdg'e will have a public library to which thfr citizens may point with pride.

The Berlin Bourse took fright, bank depositors lost heads and-rushed fo obtain re payment.' Is it not natural that in these conditions 'foreign countries should act in tbe same manner, and call in the capital they have invested in Germany? "The movement THE-present troubled condition ot .affairs amona European nations .resulting-from the pan brings .to mind once' more the prediction made by some on-e at the beginning of the year that warfare -would soon end through the medium of national interdependence in trade and fiance. As if to 'bear out this contention along comes Paris financial correspondent with statement of Germany's losses on account of the recent war- scare' over the 'Morocco question. He writes: "For many, years the economic evol- ution of Germany and tbe great ex- pansion of her commerce and indus- try have forced her to have ever greater recourse to credit. "The military power of the Em- pire, it must be admitted, has facil- itated this. Foreign money has pour- ed in from all especially from England, and still more from Prance, to German banlis, where it was at once employed at vsry remunerative rates of interest. i in sense gen-eral, and the German market will have to face demands for repayment, not only from London and Paris, but also from St. Petersburg, Vienna, and even Peru." It m-riuld th-erefore, that sci- ence and commerce are to be two most potent factors in bringing about peace among all nations, a condition of world affairs for which all civil- zed nations hive for many years been striving to attain in various ways. rTlH'E HBRAIiD, through its col J_ his always stood at an advocate of mixed farming for Southern Alberta, because it belteves that the great hope of this country in the prosperity of its farmers. For years to came the principal wealth of Alberta will be in its agrt- cultural resources. A rich and pro- gressive agricultural community is al- ways an attractive one, and by the development of its agricultural re- sources, foraee tbe recognition of ev- ery part of tbe world. Hut in young countries such as this, there is al- ways the tend'aney to.strive to make money with feverish haute, ajtd as grain growing searaa lo offer that op- portunity here, it is natural .that the farmers should turn their ittention in that direction. But the experience of other coun- tries, originally ae rich in natural re- as ibould aerne as a guide to the ot this province. Not many years since, the states of Iowa, Minnesota and the kolas wera considered (the most mag- nificent wheat growing areas of the world.

It is Books (Vancouver World.) instructive and saddening to looks over the books which were giv- en to children to read in th'air hours of recreation twenty years and more ago. Tbe Rollo books, the Elsie books, the drearily pious experiences of the Fairchild Family, were suffici- netly and quite enough, to any child of a invite for reading, except in extreme cases. Hut even tlrese were better than the literature of a still earlier -era, when books deai- ng with death and the grave, mortu- iry verses, gloomy meditations and adjurations concerning a future stale, and volumes such as tbe Book'of Mar- tyrs, and other accounts .of particu- larly cl'e'arful periods in history wera placed In the eager nands .of little searchers after with .quite disastrous effects on children ot sen- sltive feelings and fin's imagination. Many a child has hid his solitary hours rendered wretched by the re- membrance ot horrore which he has read about. And undoubtedly the evil effect may sometimes be In later life, in tbe way of Lminted sensi- bilities. Children do not explain these things to their elders. They almost incapable of their emotions; tbe only thins they fire frank about is physical sensation. The adult usually reverses the rule, and demands sympathy for his rnen- tal and spiritual difficulties, even Chough politeness holds him silent' concerning his physical discomfort.' And too often the adult forgets en- tirely what were the things that ]OOCQ-. ed large in childhood. So generation1 after generation of children' go suffering from the same -.nupidities' on the part of parents and teacheri. There is n great deal of nonsense talked about the carefree time of childhood. It is not the period of un- alloyed happiness that we like to think about in looking back at it. Children have much capacity for hap- piness, can get pleasure out of vtry trifling things, and should be happy. But things equally trifling can caiiie equally great pain; and the mere fact that childboud is a time of constant change, of new things, nipressions, new sensations, means that it is not a time of unmixed de- ight.
