Will Bring a Herd of 300 Buflalo late
Next September,
H. t-ougks, superintendent of the
Banff National park, who is en route
to Ottawa on official business, states
that the herd of over 400 buffalo purchased from M. Pablo, the Montana
r ncher, last year and now in Elk park
at Lamont, Alta, are doing splendidly
in their new norne. The big bull which
escaped while the first shipment was
being unloaded last J une and which was
discovered several months later among
some cattle in the Glacian settlement
south of Si ratheona, defied all efforts
to recapture him and had to be shot a
few days ago. He was one of the
finest specimens in the entire herd and
the hens' and hide wili be mounted and
placed in the government c -flection.
Mr. Douglas says that as eoon as
weather will permit the wo>k of fencing the new na ional park at Denbow
where the buffalo will be permanently
located, will begin. It will require CO
miles of fence to enclose the great trr.'t

The leading Conservative newspaper
in Canada, the "Montreal Gazette,"
has this to say about ihe Dickie'McBride
"The majority in the British
Columbia Legislature has sustained the Speaker in ruling out of order
a resolution- calling for the removal
or' Lieutenant-Governor Dunsmuir.
It will be well for the rtputation of
th« body if this ends the matter.
What has transpired so far has
chiefly had the effect of persuading
outsiders at least that there are in
the British Columbia Legislature a
lot-of moral cow ardi afraid to accept
the responsibility oi their own
In which opinion thu. majority of voters
in the Columbia Riding will mosth.ar.-

In these days of tust hvii;g and
strenuous conducting oi our bus.ness
affairs, where the cource of cur - nreer
is smooth and pioBperky and geed
times follow in our path, we are ad if
us too prone to iforgec ihe fu-:«rj, ana
what mignt be, iu our cesire io ii ake
the most of life am. we - ive but lia.c
heed to the warnings of Uiosu who,
leais sanguine and ouoyaut, lock into
the distant futurj and fo-esee the
shadow of calamity, of haru times anu
privation. To irjacli hard tinr s i.i tie
days of prosperity would be considered
the action of a crank or a pissimist, yet
how few of us really lay up ».ore for a
rainy day, or for any unexpected cn-
tingency that may arise to cause us to
feci the pinch of care. Wc most of us
liv rup tooj.- .najmoi, anu many beyond
them, and it is only when times su.h as I
are upon us now, that we slop to think
of retrenching and accommodate our-
selves if possible to ihe circumstances, i
We are apt ho.Never to look on.the
worst side of things and to jump at con- j
elusions, not knowing what to do or how j
to think and this does even ir.oredamaj, e
to a community than the commercial
depression itself,
situation. The industrial organization
of the world while it hns evolved on
simp.e principles is characterized by a
closeness of relation between its oif
ft-renc parts tna tlie disproportion!.!.-
advance of any one of these parts wi 1
diiiocate, to a certain extent,   other

Extra work, harder rustling ..nd p«-r-
severan.u, with a sanguine and cheerful countenance will do mure to eliminate tue severity of ihe situation than
ail the disgruntlou grumbling m which
we nre sapaule.. Don't jump at rash
conclusions in any matter, whether
