It is making the land more valuable every year, and is also providing us with cheap hugnr, as the comix'ti-tion it olTers forces the big combines to drop their jirieos. Jt IS haixliy noeessar.y to say that It IS m the interests of Lethbridge district, as well as the entire Province, that this industry shonKI be (:iv�'n every possible. A bonus IS iiecresury to protect this iiKlustry in its present .stage of development from the competition of tho coast ri'fini.riis. Sugar is sold here chonpei' by the B. C. {loople than in It.

T'hat Mr. Simmons will do this, with all the energy of' which ho is possessed, no one doubts. Then, we say, it. is the duty of the electors of this district to vote for i.'he J...iberal candidate, if they desire to encouraee this industry- EDITORIAL NOTES The citizens of Leavings want the name of that jilaco changed.

And as ,\ou pcru^J them just stop a'nd think how much crtdi't the house would give you if you were in need of it I'or a month or two, lunv muoh they have done 'to apd-vance the value of your property in CraiArook, how much they ha\x' done to buii'd up your fire dopartnun't that has saved the town once or twice, how much they pay in taxes to your municipality, aiHl last, but not least, how much can .vou niako on your purchases when quoliity, express and satisfaction arc taken into iiKachunts and build up . your home town.

Smoking is prohibited during the sitting of committees of the Licgis-lature at Edmonton. We thought this was a country of freedom. Br. Osier's theory would 1 e all right if it was ajipliod to "knockers." The world would be a happier place without them. Tho and Gonsei-vative plat forms dilTer so little that wo can't under.s-tand why the Conserva-tivcs had any need of putting up a candidate, when the other fellow stood on the same iilatform. SUPPORT MR. SIMMONS. Head what tho Macleod Gazette haa to say about the Lethbridgv elections. The (Jazc'tto is not usually inclined towards the Lilicrals. We have not th� slig' bit of use for the hide-bound pai-ti.san-the man who is blindcfl to the wrongs in hi.s own party ami the good in the party to which ho is opposed. What this countiy needs is men who will not stick to their party like a fl.v to honey-nu-n who will vote for the best interests of their Province. The narrow, bii?otiU partisan is a to the land. There is no earthly reason at the present tune for an opponent to be elected to tho l.'iberal Cloverwnent. It IS conducting the alTairs of the The souvenir numJicr of the Lethbridge News is out, and it reflects credit on' the enterprise of Mr. Hag-ell. This special is a splciKlid advertisement for this town a'nd district, i't is well illustrated, and shows iip the town to the best advantage. Li-thbrrdge has as much reason to have a Hour mill as M'odicinc Hat. It we only hustKnl a little more than we aixi doing, we would have one. It is only n few weeks since 'the mill at the Hat shipixd S4,700 worth of flour in ono consignment to Vancouver. The rapid growth of the wheat-raising .sections around here, warrants the construction of a mill hero before this year's crop is harvested. tbe Beittley eoittpany, �td* we could take half a dozen drinks a day and qtiit at that, we should call ' for a little Scotch and soda tomorrow. But it is insidious stuff, nnd the inan^ who 'has the alcoholic germ (aiHl knotis it) who deliberately starts drinking when he knows it will larnl him on the street, is a fool. There is coraparatively little boozing done in. I'Jie west compared with what thei� was a few years ago. You notice t'his changxj 'mostly on' the trains on I'hc north and sout>h brandies. In the old days almost every man had a bottle along. Now one seldom sees even o flask. This is on e.xccUont sign of the tiims. Here is' a good Ijcnten story. In a London restaurant a waiter was surprised at being asked by an Irishman for "divilltti whale." "It is iil-leto*! . shark that ,vo have, thin?", pursued the Irishman, on being ro-fusecl this dcllcac.v. Again ivceiving a reply in tho .neiffi'--'e, lo iii:".l once more. "Thin ye cti l>ii;ig mo some roasted porpoise," he said. The waiter showed signs of becoming restive, and Paddy sank bock in his 8thbridge and this dl.s-j . tnct, and because he supports u (Joveriiinent that is pursuing a policy that IS bound lu IniiUI up Al-Ijeila. Whv, we ask again, sluniUr the ]>oo-ple ol this (IJHtrict cling to parlyism on the present occa.sion'.' The election of a Conservative or Lailiorite �>vouUl look ns though this di.stricl was not 111 'favor of tho advanced Iirograminc announced by tho parly �uj power at I'jdnionton. Now, as a matter of fact, we believe tho great majority of tho electors of this dis-� tnct are in lavor ot that policy. The best and only vyay to encourage the (Tovernnient in its course is lo cast your political "allegiance aside . and vo-tc for 'the best interesis of the Province, and murk your ballot for W. l". Snnuions. �I'ho policy follow�l by the Iviboral Governmept at Kdmonton meets with the endorsfttion of many Con-.servativc newspapers. Why should the people of and district elect an opponent of this' Government.. Lethbridge endorsed the nuther-ford rjovernment last November, and not one thing has occurred since then to warrant that vote Ijoing No matter which candidate is elected, the workingmen arb guaranteed wdvancd legislation. Wilh a strike ar�l an election, U-'.hhridgo is looming large in the pivss of the Dominion. 'J'ho Hoard of Trade should make a strong demand on the Dominion Opvoinment for a new po�tofllce here. Wo can't e-xjiect to get one unless wo make it clear to the "powers that that it is an ob-.solute noce.ssitv. -o- 'I'he proposal to hold a cattle market here is important. Lethbridge j.s suiroundod by u great cattle-raisinif district. It is the most convenient s|�ot in the south country for cattlemen to come to to sell their Ntock. of Several ladies were aboirt advertisements. One remarked, "Say, 'does'nt So-aml So write clever ads?" "Indeed he does, and he sees that he changes them every week." There is a moral to be 'taken from this conversation l-y some ol our merchants, and that is "cbange your b'ds. regularly." Advertising pays> but you can't get the value out ot it unless you keep, the reading public in touch wi'th your 'business. Let them know what you have to olTer. When you have a bargain tell them abotrt it, and put the figures prominent. Fts the figures that catch llie eye. The ads.'are read, at least the Herald ads., for a merchant told me the day alter last week's ETerald was issued, that he had three calls lor cei'tain article that people had seen ad\'�rtised in the Herald. Once a'gttin, let mo say, "change your ads. regtilarly." Have a talk with our customers on a different topic ivwry week. Did it ever strike j'ou that thoi-e is much real good musical talent in this^town. We question whether many places can boast of as pleasing vocalists as Mrs. Reeves, Miss Burnett, and Messrs. Cunningham, Hnrrop, Kiiner and Hings. We heaid these ladies and gentlemen sing one evening last week, and their voices were fully as entertain; ing as some of the artists who travel from the Atlantic to tho Pacific, getting $50 and ?~5 a night-^n^ our opinion anyway. Music, from the critical standpoint, is not in our lino, but we know a pleasing voice, whe�� we hear it".
