Instead of trying to  compete  with  the  daily  papers,   tlie  country editors of today are leaving  the fields of   national   ahd   International news to the dailies���������even state  news to a large extent���������-and concentrating  on  the   news   of  their  own  counties or circulation territ������r,T. The  country weekly in the bid days had to  print a good deal of general news be-,  cause its readers were cut of range of  the dailies. Now the dailies penetrate  everywhere, but,    paradoxically    the  country newspapers  are more flourishing than ever before.  In Greenfield, Massachusetts, for  example, a town of 15,000, there is a  substantial daily paper; but there is  also the Greenfield Gazette, which,  has been published as a weekly for  135 years.

"The successful country newspaper  publisher today is no longer primarily a printer," is the way one of them  explained it to me. "You notice that  I said publisher. TDhat means that* he  is a business man. He may or may  not be also an editor.or a printer, or  both, but the emphasis is on the business  end.    Most of us  are our own  editors   as   well   as   publishers,   and  there are still a good many -who began as printers and will nlways be  printers   at heart.  But. publishing   a  country paper of today is definitely a  business, and a very profitable busi- j  ness."

As later in their question  about the tribute money, so here they  thought that whichever way He answered they: would have a case against   ,  Him. If He said "Yes," He would offend the  Jews who believed in the  teaching of   Rabbi    Joehanan,    who  said, "The putting away of ia wife is  odious"; if He said "No," he would be  opposing the teaching, of many rabbis,  and would offend Herodias  (for  Herod had put  away his own wife  and married Kerodias),   the wife nf  his brother, while the latter was still  living, and her fury might cause Him  tp share the fate of John' the Baptist.  As was His frequent custom Jesus  referred  them  to  their law:   "What  did Moses command you?" He questioned. -'Moses suffered to write* a bill  of divorcement,    and    to ���������  put    her  away," they replied.

Dr.  Symond's manner warned Helmi that  it would be better for her to tell the  truth.; Roused from her dream, she  stared at him with a frightened face.

II not;  There is no su'dject in which the people of Western. Canada take a deeper or inore continuing interest than the subject of education, They demand  the best for their children, and that they are prepared to pay for it is  manifested by the splendid school buildings which are ah outstanding feature in every Western city, town and village and in the steadily improving;  character of rural school houses, coupled with the generous financial provision made for the upkeep of the schools. Whatever, complaint there may  be in regard to the size of tax bills, the majority view is that, where pruning of expenditure is necessary, it must not be done at the expense of;  efficiency in education. *  Demanding the best in education, there is mubh difference of opinion as;  to what constitutes the "best" and how it is to be attained. It ss now gen-*  erally accepted that the state owes to every child the rudiments of an  education, and is responsible for seeing that each boy and girl receives it?  Education must, therefore, be state aided, and the state which provides the  money must supervise and control the educational system and be response  ble for it. The vast majority of people today will not consent to that  responsibility being delegated to any other authority.  People are, however, divided in opinion as to what should be taught in  the schools. Roman Catholics hold tenaciously that a school without religion  is godless and that character cannot be properly moulded or sound morals  taught except through religious teaching, hence, as Father Ryan expresses  it in "The Catholic World," "the Church cannot regard as satisfactory any  system of education in wrhich religion is not the foundation of the whole  curriculum."1 Many Protestants, and an increasingly large number of them,  agree. On the other hand, most Protectants insist that the state-aided schools  shall be wholly secular, and that religious teaching is the duty of the  Church, the Sunday schools and the home.  The educational systems of these Western Provinces are a compromise  ��������� between these two opposing views In.that they;make provision, for the establishment of minority separate schools and for the use of the last half-  hour of the regular school day for religious instruction if the trustees so  decide. This compromise feature is objected to by many, and the opinion  is frequently voiced that what this country should have is the national  school system of the United States.  A century ago, however, all religious sects in the United States, Protestant as welL as Catholic, opposed the wholly secular public school, and Insisted, as they had from the time of the Puritans, upon religious training in  the schools. Now, after a century of secular public schools, the churches of  the United States are taking stock of the situation and looking results  squarely in the face. The general tenor of the complaint of the Protestant  assemblies is "the comparative failure of the church's religious education/'  and that "neither the homes, nor the churches, nor the schools" provide, an  adequate religious training, and that "a solution must be ijound or disaster  will befall both the Church and society." They recognize that the Sunady  schools do aiot meet the need, because so small a proportion of the children  attend, and the instruction for the most part is ineffective, because of lack  of time, teacher preparation, and pupil interest. The problem confronting  the Church is, therefore, one of combining religion with public education,  Church and State working together for a great result neither can achieve  alone.  What is happening? Nineteen of the principal Protestant bodies have  formed the Council of Church Boards' of Education for the purposes of carrying out o program of religious instruction during public school hours to  supplement the regular curriculum. The plan is as follows: On the request of  the parent, a child is assigned at fixed periods each week for the study of  religion under a teacher designated by the parent. These teachers are appointed and supported by tlie sects, but their qualifications are to he the same  as for other instructors. Likewise, the standard of work and thc credit granted are determined as for other subjects. Where no legal bar prevents, classes have sometimes been held in the school buildings; otherwise, in rooms  provided by the churches. Textbooks and study materials have been issuefi  by the variotis denominational publishing houses.  Week-day religious instruction on public school time has been, adopted  in about fright hundred communities in over twenty States. In New York  City, Catholics and Protestants havo united to secure the arrangement there.  Laws sanctioning this policy have been passed in Iowa, Minnesota, Ohio,  Oregon and South Dakota, while court decisions in two States and official  rulings in eight others have protected it. Even where legislation has been  rejected, or no action taken, thc plan is proceeding without interference.  This trend of thought and action in'thc United States, whero a national  secular public school system haa so long prevailed, is of interest, and the  above outline is presented solely for the information of Western people  anxious to discover what ia best for their children and calculated to build  up a strong Christian country.    ������r-!dbyyoEt������������*������.,.. ..uu..  erdei- from u*.

Similar  functions wiU also be held in every  Canadian province.  It is fitting indeed that such a centenary should not, go by unnoticed,  for Dunant did much to promote the  idea that su-Sfertn0* in ������*a? the a^os^ !  of the battlefield, could be largely  mitigated.     .  It was while this great benefactor  of humanity was travelling in Lorn-  bardy in 1859 that he* saw 40,000  dead, dying, wounded and sick j men  lying on the Battlefield of Solferino;  without Anyone offering as much as  a drink of water in kindly service.  The sight of this so wrung his heart  that he did not rest until an impromptu hospital was prepared in the  nearby town of Oastligione, with a  voluntary ambulance and nursing  service in attendance. Thus he became known as the "Good Samaritan  of Castligione."  The sight of so much agony never  left his mind and he wrote a brochure  that was fraught with much significance to the world thereafter.  Dunant for several years travelled  about Europe lecturing and giving  his opinions regarding the treatment  of soldiers in battle, pressing home  the need for a reorganization of the  medical services, for the rearrangement of. plans for repatriating prisoners of war and caring for disabled  men who had been broken in fighting  for their country's cause. *Out of  Dunant's first idea grew the Conference at Geneva, -which resulted in Red  Cross being made law for the world.  The "first Treaty of Geneva was signed by twelve out of sixteen national  delegates, the first Red Cross Society being formed in the German  principality of Wurtemburg.

In view of this fact, and also because  he proposed later to make a statement on the matter, he thought the  question might be dropped. Mr.  Spencer objected and said he would  prefer to have the question stand oh  J. 3.

The party, one of the largest all-  British to arrive in the West for  some time, were discharged at St.  John from the S.S. Montcalm and  proceeded here by* special train.

There was  a problem on the horizon, he said,  which Montreal and the Dominion as  a whole would have to face in future  years.  As the population of tlie country  grew and the trade of Canada increased, the port of Montreal -was  bound to obtain a congested condition  and then; Canada must look to the  Hudson's Bay to provide another entrance and outlet.  Coupled with this problem," he remarked that the waters of the St.  Lawrence were receding and he felt  that if the large liners were going  to be able to dock, at Montreal there  must be a damming up of the waters of the river to maintain the  "necessary level*-   ..;".i.^.- .---**-.  *--  Old Age Pensions  Discuss Arrangements For Applying  Scheme In Saskatchewan  Ottawa, Ont.-^-Hon.

This was the  question asked by J. W. Barnett, Ed-.  monton, secretary of the Alberta  Teachers' Alliance, in an address before the Saskatchewan Teachers' Al- "  liance. Mr. Barnett was brought to  Saskatoon to be the chief speaker to  the ''alliance,'' as Dr. G. M.
