PRIDE IN SCHOOLS
Dominant Feeling Among Settlers
in Western Canada.
Despite "Newness" o the Country,
There Are No Better Institutions
of Learning Anywhere.
There Is frequently hesitation ex
pressed by thoso whoso minds are
almost made up to move to the agri
cultural lands of Western Canada,
that the children will not enjoy the
school privileges afforded them In
their present surroundings. This Is a
reasonable doubt. Tho .country Is new.
It Is within the memory of many who
will read this thnt tho bison roamed
these prairies nt will, that there were
no railroads, no settlements beyond
that of some of tho Hudson Bay posts,
a few courageous ranchmen and In
dians. It was n country of unknown
quantity. It Is different today, and It
has been mado different In that short
time becauso of tho latent stores of
wealth hidden In tho land, which has
been made to yield bountifully through
the daring enterprise of the pioneer
and tho railways that had the courage
to extend their enterprising lines of
steel throughout Its length nnd n great
portion of Its breadth. Villages and
hamlets have dcvelftped Into towns nnd
towns Into cities, supported and main
tained by thoso who, coming practi
cally from all pnrts of tho world, and
ninny, yes, thousands, from the neigh
boring states to the south, havo taken
up land that cost them but a trlflo ns
compared with what they were able
to dlsposo of the holdings upon which
they Jind been living for years. These
people brought with them n method
In life thnt electrified and changed the
entire Canadian West. Today things
are different, nnd a trip to Western
Cnnada ill show n country now hut
old. Now becauso changes have been
wrought that give to the newcomer
the opportunity to become part or a
growing and developing country It
gives the chance to sny what shall bo
mado of It ; old becauso there has been
brought Into Its life those things
thnt have proven useful in older coun
tries, while there hns been eliminated
everything that would tend to a back
ward stage. A writer, dealing with
social matters, treats of tho schools,
"Everywhere the school follows tho
plow. Cities which a few years ago
were represented by scattered shacks
aro proud today of their school build
ings. The web of education Is being
spread over the prairie. Lately,
however, a new policy has been adopt-1
ed. Instead of ninny rural schools,
big central schools aro being estab
lished, each serving an area of fifty
square miles or so, and children who
live n mile and n half nway are con
veyed thither In well-wnrmed motor
cars. In tho summer, of course, they
como on "bikes" or ponies.
"And tho young Idea is taught to
shoot In many directions. The Instruc
tion Is not limited to the three Jt's,
but nature study and manual crafts
arc taught, In order that tho future
agriculturist may have his education-1
nl foundation laid. Many rural schools
have pleasant gardens attached, with
flower and vegctnblo beds, and the
visitor to one such school deep In the
country snys she will never forget tho
pride with which n llttlo lad showed
her the patch of onions In his plot.
Thrift Is also taught In tho schools
by means of tho dime hank.
"Following tho primary schools there
are secondary schools, where training
is free. This Includes clnsslcs, modern
languages, science, mathematics, ad
vanced English, nnd often agricultural,
commercial, and technical subjects,
and but this concerns tho girls

this lasts, nnd then comes matricula

Mothers, watch your Daughters Health
From tho timo n xrirl reachos tho

thoughtful mother can give.
Tho condition that tho girl is then
passing through is so critical, and may
have such far-reaching elTVcta upon
her future happiness and health, that
it is almost criminal for a mother or
guardian to withhold counsel or ad
vice. Many a woman has suffered years
of prolonged pain and misery through
having beon tho victim of thought
lessness or ignorance on the part of
those who should have guided her
through tho dangers and difficulties
that besot this period.
Mothers should teach their girls
what danger comes from standing
around with cold or wet feet, from
lifting heavy articles, and from over
working. Do not let them over-study.
If they complain of headache, pains
