Side BEAUTIFY LETHBRIDGE The beautification of Lethbridge is a. matter that should interest every truly loyal and ambitious citizen. We have a growing city grandly lo- cated and beautiful in spots. should aim to have every part of the city beautiful. The Council should see that everj- street is toned with trees. Citizens, no matter how lowly, should make it a point to have a well kept lawn with flower beds and trees. Around our churches, schools and public buildings the same idea should be followed but to a greater extent. Nothing impresses the visit- or better than clean, well shaded streets and beautiful lawns. Nothing creates a poor opinion of a placo more quickly than the absence of these charms of nature.

Not long ago the superintendent of parks in London, Ont., delivered an address before the Horticultural Society, of Startford, Ont., In the the course of his remarks he said that the good appearance of a city or town depends upon its well de- signed sire-its, public buildings, sta- tions, parks boulevards, and even telephone and telegraph poles, but none of these are more important than well kept lawns and properly planted trees. Especially in new streets was it desirable thkt trees be of uniform variety. The majority people are indifferent to this fact until they have seen the great im- provement wrought by it. One of the greatest faults of planting was put- ting the trees too close together, soon resulting in an excess of shade and dampness for thc buildings. The work should be done by a competent and artistic man, and the idea shcruld not be to cover everything with the trees but to give a landscape effect with a background. words imply, whim disentangled, that if a ratepay- er commends the course which newspaper aays a certain alderman took, the alderman thinks the report er is a winner, but if, on the other hand, somebody tomes along and asks him what thc biankety blank blank he meant by saying such and such in council, then the reporter gets it all wrong and his words did- n't imply tn< meaning which the newspaper man attached to them. Of course this doesn't by any means ap- ply to all aldermen. In a despatch from Winnipeg yes- terday Kid Ford, catcher for Bdmon ton last year, was mentioned as hav- ing signed with Brandon. The Kid dropped into the- office after the was off the press and explained that the statement was erroneous. He did think seriously of signing with Brandon at one time, but Sun- day a telegraph message and a rail- road ticket came to him to journey to Philadelphia and the Kid leaves Friday morning on the Southern bound train.

Mr. Pearce also pointed out that the wealth and mercantile progress of A city is characterized by its public buildings and it is a grave enor to think that these structures need not be attractive. Bridges and fences should be always painted in suitable colors under right control. Espeeislly in residential streets should unsightly telephone poles be properly placed or replaced if necessary. They should be painted in a uniform color from top to bottom and should harmonize in with the pavement or be ol some quiet unobtnisiv} hue, so as not to be conspicioua.
