was a boy and a young man at oi'-i-

lather's   capacity   for   statcsmaiisn.p,
and  it   is   known  that  he  has  groat
tact and  skill.   These  dualities  hav*:
heen  tested  more  in  the  _eorga_.i__-

tics.   The  premier   of  Manitoba  alio
the leader  of a party    m the gn~.ii

something   more   than   a   provincial

Superior.       Thereiore    a    revol_.ii;.

as one of the loaders of the Liburil-

him belongs the honor to have  captured  the  first important position m

The Edmonton Bulletin has In a
very practical way discussed the re
lations of the large ranchers ol
Southern Alberta wilh the small
farmers of the north. It says in part.
"At the present time the market
stands about in this wise. The former's herd is made up of calves, year
olds, two year olds, three year oldt
and   cows.
'���Gordon & Ironside's buyer comes
around and nicks out the very best
three year olds and pays the veiy
top price for them, ?40 and ?Ij a
head. This is the purchase whleti
sets the pace. These buyers do not
want and will' nol take cheap caill.\
Only .the best are0 any use to ihem.
But for everything" that is best���that
is good enough for the English ma.'
ket���a dollar or two on the pric-j is
neither here nor there. , Not because they are philanthropists but
because the ocean treight is a ia-go
part of the total cost oi beef 'n
England. The freight is paid lor Ly
space and is therefore no more oh the
best animal than on tne worst. Tlie.v
can atford to pay the saving m
freight on .an extta good animal as
part of the purchase price.
"P. Burns' buyer is around cl ise
after Gordon & Ironside. He '.vams
beef for the Kootenay mines. He
has an abattoir and cold storage at
Calgary. As his haul is short ami
freight is by the hundred ponmis
Burns can purchase the smaller and
younger animals that Gordon & iron
side would not touch. Any part or
���Alberta has a shorter haul to tlie
abattoir and the mines than a:i>
other section of thu Territories ;>'.
Manitoba. Therefore he can p.iy
freight more for his cattle than he-
can the farmer of Manitoba. As a
matter of fact the Alberta farmer oi
rancher has the preference tor t!i-
Kootenay   market.
The competitive export demand
relieves the local mat ket from tuvj.:
would otherwise hi a giut; and ir.
��� order to meet the demands of a large |
and rapidly growing population the
local butchers have .to pay good prces
for what stock they want.
"It will thus be seen -lhat iL:i*r-
is a ready market for all cattle fit
for beef. But what about the t'i ;

oa a large scale to buy his young
cattle and let them grow up a i.i

a calf for say 510. Herds it o:. the

so, but as the distance is nn", ro

necessary the buyers can oi.lflta

"This leaves nothing but lhe cows

Among the Guards who were killed at Belmont, were Private St.Johti
tho champion boxer of Wales, and
Private Htekling, who played back
for  AValstall.
In looting the Boer camp after
Klandslaagte one soldier got 100
sovereigns. Another reelved a check
for ��150 for helping a wounded
man down a hill.
Out ot the total of 105 killed and
wounded in the naval brigade al
Gras Pan, S7 were royal marines,so
tliat it was rather a marines' than
a    "sailors' battlo.
All Boers are not the same; "lhey,
themselves speak ot those "dashing
dare-devils," the Middleburghers, the
more discreet Bethel men, and the
sturdy   Heideiburgrers.

time headmaster of 'Alivval public
According to the Petit Bleu, tho
ladies of Pretoria were 'surprised to
see the ISLh. Hussars were hardened
wariors; lhey thought all the English
soldiers were ~"Oung  warriors.
One of the Boers killed at Elandslaagte, vvas found to be an English
soldier, as lie wore three British
medals. Perhaps he was the English
ex-colonel who was forcibly,..commandeered by  the Boers.
���'What made we feel simply mad,''
said a carbineer, who joined in the
pursuit of Tmta Inyoni, was-, to see
some Boers who retreated firing and
slashing at our poor -wounded tellov.-s.
A Gordon Highlander, wounded in
the right shoulder by a~ Mauser builel, said all he felt was a sensation
of numbness in the * arm; others
spoke of feeling only a sharp prick
when the builet passed through a
leg or an  arm. .
A Gordon Highlander had his
smashed shoulder put into a splint
without chloroform. When' the operation was over he began to laugh,
saying, "It is funny not to have any;
p.un," and he began walking aJl
round with a clay pipe, and was as
pleastd   as  Punch.

Clarke,   a   Stockman,   Fatally  Shot   in   Vancouver  Vancouver,   Dec.   12.���������Alex.Ularko,  stockman, who formerly lived near  Brandon, was shot aud instantly killed this morning at Stevenson. Jas.  Jones, an employee or Webber, a  butcher led a steer out to be shot.  Claika held the rope and when Jones  fired tho first shot the animal plunged    forward.      Clarke    jumped  back ' 7ommeudable  just as Jones fired the second shot,  the bullet striking him in the lore-  head.  Thero were sensational developments 'at the inquest held by Coroner  McGuigau at Stevenson over tho remains. The evidence showed lhal  tha shooting by        Butcher  Jones was accidental but grossly  reckless. Jones had fired one shot  at tho cow they were killing in the  slaughterhouse and evidently excitedly fired the second shot at the struggling animal. Tne second charge  killed Clarke,the bullet going thiough  lho door whero he vvas s.auding outside. Tho third shot killed tho ani-  nin.l. Webber, proprietor or the  slaughter house, ran in, with tho  words, to Jones,- 'You've killed  Clarke." Jones glanced at the dead  man and said "Get someone to take  him away." and went on skinning  and cuttins up the cow, while the  others carried away Clarke. The verdict of the coroner's jury contained  a strong ccn-surc for allowing the  dlschargo of firearms in lho municipal  limits.  room, in addition to the particular  tools at each bench. One instructor  and a assistant were sufficient for  the 40 boys. The course of instruction is a three year's one, and  each boy gives half a day per week  to it. Consequently lho manual  training room in that instance provided facilities for 400 boys, there  being tun half days in each school  week."  The   manual   training     room   thus  sketched   can  only   be  conbidered    a.  adjunct     to   a  school  BURNED TO DEATH  Fire Destroys the Residence ot I.."instable Saunders at Regin.i  tuul Three Boys Perish  Regina, Dec. 11.���������Early this morning a fire bioke out in the, lion. 2  on the barracks Hats occupi������'l by  Constable'Saunders, vvho is employi,d  as stoker at the Mounted Polic*! barracks.

The last' heard  from the Canadians was a line from  Ottawa saying they were sent to Belmont "line of communication;" that  was Friday," seven days ago, and it is  thought here not improbable that sincp  Wauchope, of the Highlanders, ha<_  been killed in action, the Canadians,  with the Highlander:;, had been  br'cught up the ."lino ot communication" from Belmont by .Methuen and  were-in 'Sunday's fight in which  Methuen reports he was unsuccessful.

Such manual  training would not be technical education. The manual training room  should not be a workshop where operations are to be carried on with  a view to the commercial values of  the articles turned out. At the same  time the work done there should be  more than mere pottering with a  few tools. In this, as in all euucti-  tioual elfort, it is after all, Ue  t achor that counts for most in tlie  development of tho child. And care  should be exercised that the proposed manual training should it over  become an established featuro in our  public schools should bo merely hand  and eye training, and not a new subject, in an already overburdened  school course.   o   I TEMPERANCE, j  Church News.

Manual Training in Schools.  Tlie  ubject  of  manual   training  in  public schools has aroused much discussion,     vvhich   has   ' been , greacly  stimulated   of    late    throughout   thu  Dominion   by   the   announcement- of  ^the^of������eiujnadL^by_^_Sir.--Wi'1iam___C..  Macdonald  or* Montreal,  whose dona-  . tions   to   McGill     university     exceed  *?2,500,000,   to  pay  for  the  equipment  required     for    educational     manual  training iu one place in each of the  p,ovinces   and .also  to   meet   the expenses of  qualified   teachers and    of  maintenance for  three  years  in    all  those  places.      This oli'cr    is   made  .through   Professor   -Robertson,     the  .Dominion   commissioner   of' agriculture  and  dairying,  from whom    the  Albertan  has  received    a    copy    of  his  address  to    the    public    school  board  of Ottawa,   in  which    lie  announces .the   terms    of    the * offer.  These   arc,   that     in    Ottawa     and  Brockville, in Winnipeg,  in Calgiry,  in   Charlottetown,   P.E.I.,   In   * Fred-  rlcton N. B., and in two other cities  not specified,one in Quebec and one  in British Columbia,  Sir William C.  Macdonald  will   equip   and  maintain  for threo years as many centres   as  "are  required   to   give    all   the   boys  between tho ages of nine and 11  m  tho public schools an opportunity ta  receive   the   proposed   manual   training. ���������  Professor   Robertson     ls   at   pains  to   make  it clear  that  this "training  is  to  ho  educational  hand-work,  not  trade   hand   work.     Everybody   says-  that too much of the present system'  of instruction is based on the stttdy  of   hooks,   whicli,   while     it  renders  children  capable   of  answering  questions,   does  not  teach   them   how 'lo  do  things  with   their    hands.      Tho  systeni   of  proposed  manual  training  is   called   Educational     Sloyd���������Sloyd  "being a Swedish  word  for  dexterity.  ���������Jn the  public schools of Sweden  the  system has been established for some  -time.   In England, too, it Is ln operation in  some    150 manual    training  centres, being assisted by government  grants.       According     to     Professor  Robertson     tliere are     about    50.000  boys  1 etween the  ageg of nine  and  14  who are  reteiving courses  of ,in-  str'teiion   in   woodwork,     ironwork,  brass-work   or   lcatherwork,   fn     tne  publ'c  schools of London.

" The extraordinary mortality among  the British ollicers in South Afntri  has evoked a good - deal-- of critic!, m  in Great Britain and called the at  tcntiou of the war authorities to tno  fact that something must be done to  decrease it, else the army will" siou  be without sufficient omccrs to do  the work, required. One Is that tLe  officers give up their , swords when  going into action, it having e������;a  proved lhat tho glistening of these  useless weapons make a good m.ui:  for the hostile riflemen. It is proposed that the officers carry carbines  instead, and it is to oc noted tliat  the dast naval detachment that la-.^y  went to the front, the officers were  armed in the same fashion as the  men. It is recalled that the vaiit'Ut  Colonel Burnaby, who was killed in  the Soudan, never carried a sword  in action but used instead a saw.-1-  off shot gun which he always sai'l  was worth more than a down  swords; and some of the military experts are devising a weapon on th*:s  line for the officers, a short breech-  loading gun, easy to carry and uie.  if necessary in close quarters ar.d at  the same time more deadly .than  any sword can be. Along the sam;  line is the suggestion of Lord Archibald Campbell that the kiits of ;n_  Scotch regiments, which have made  so  good   a  mark   for    the  Beers,  b  " At considerable expense    the    New-  Denver Ledge has compiled  a set of  resolutions   for the guidance   of Pil-  g"rims~durihg_the~clbsihg*=yea'r-=of-tlie=*  10th century.

There  are now seven dead horses lying in  one spot on lhc meadow there, u-hicli  have simply perished of cold and_  hunger after doing a season's work cf  which the raw saddle galls on their  barks and sides tell their own till.-.  The situation is rapidly developing  into   one    of   terrible    gravity.   The  rapid   succession   e.f   reverses to the  British arms within the last fevv  days  has shaken the "loyalty" of the Dutch  Africanders in Cape Colony 'considerably.   There can   be   no   longer any  doubt that the Imperial government  has   to   face   a  rising   of   the whole  Dutch     rural     population   in   South  Africa.   At the same time the foes of  the Empire see iit last the opportunity  for which they have been   waiting foi  the lust quarter of a century,  coming.  Any day mny see some demand  made  by France or Russia on  the Imperial  cabinet, made willi the sole  intention  of^forcing on  a  war.   There   is  only  too good reason  to suppose that the  friendship   of Germany   tuny not be  able   to resist the temptation  nf an  attempt   to    increase    lier    colonial  possessions   at  the  expense    of    the  Empire.   The   terrible nature of the  crisis is fully recognized by the statesmen vvho are guiding the destinips of  the Empire.   The old country is being  drained   of  regular   troops   iind   the  militia, the second line of defence and I  the whole army reserve is being called I  out.   The volunteers nnd yeomanry,  a splendid body of volunteer cavalry,  have been  called on.   Australia and  Canada   have been asked for second  contingents and the numbers sent left  to the discretion of the governments.  It is no longer a question of, sympathy  but of men.    Lord  Roberts  and  Lord  Kitchener,   the    tvvo    most     trusted  generals *,in   the   army,    have   bpen  ordered to tnke chief command of the  South   African   force.     Mr. "Asquith,  the  ' real   though   not   the    nominal  leader of the Liberal party in England,  declared on Saturday after the news  of  Gen.   Buller's   reverse   had    been  received, that the war is no longer a  struggle for British  paramountry in  Africa.    It   is   a   tight   tor   the  very  existence of the Empire.  CHRISTMAS  IS AT HAND  - i  Party politics, have ^sunk into  oblivion in Great Britain in the face  of the tremendous crisis, .which .the  motherland is being called iipon to  face*. There ' is , every reasonable  probability Unit vve in Canada may  soon be forgetting our political differences in joining bands lo keep the old  flag Hying over this r.i ir Dominion.  No oiie can say but that the next, cull  vvill be for men to protect the extremities of lhis country on cither ocean  and guard onr great Imperial inner  line of communication to the Orient,  and India from being cut afc Halifax  or Vancouver. This is no lime for  making polit-iral capital for one side or  the other. But it miKt decidedly is a  time for Canadians to ilecl-irc wilh one  voice that there must be no divided  sympathies in her councils. -The nien  at tiie head of ber affairs must be  British and nothing else. It. is plain  that the present situation at the Cape  has been enormously aggravated by  the fact that a cabinet was in power,  when the trouble first began, which  wns divided in its sympathies between  the Empire nnd the Boers. Mr.  Schreinor, the premier, persisted to  the last moment in hisvacillntion. He  allowed luge quantities of ammunition to be forwarded through Capetown to the Orange Free Sliite'n few  days hefore the war broke out and  revised to garrison the towns on the  horder lo the last. If. ancl-it. is quite  possible, Canada is to be involved in a  genera! ".(.toggle for the very existence  of tbe Empire, we1 cannot afford imperfect sympathy with the Imperial  idea to rule in the councils of,the  Dominion. There is only one. ting in  Canapa. Those, who would prefer or  half prefer to see another flying,''can  stnnd asifb; and. ...wiitfih the issue if  they choose. But, tbey must not be  allowed to bold high places in her  government or tnke ndvintnge of  fi-md, accorded to them by local "objects  " lo thwui'L their withes and' bnfUe their  efforts.
