THE SPRING CLEAN-UP The season for spring cleaning is on. -tills wily, owing to the small am- ount of snow-fall during the past win- ter, there is probably not so much re- fuse in the back yards and la-aes as in previous years. The active policy adopted by the council with regard to scavenging has also had its desired effect. But there is much to be done oven yet. in a. city where the building of res- idences is at a far more rapid rate than it is possible to follow with sew- er is always a dan- ger of an epidemic of typhoid fever in the spring. Lethbridge, owing to its splendid water supply has not of- j J ten suffered from, such an epidemic, but in such a rapidly growing city there is ayways the danger. The au- thorities should put forth at this time of the year particularly strenuous ef- forts to see that all yards, lanes, out- houses, and cesspools are put in con- ation to prevent the development and spreading of disease. the Printer and Publisher says: "Last month marked another import- ant event in the history of the Leth- biidge Herald, when it issued its first special number. This issue wag called the Special Publicity Number, and consisted of W pages printed on good quality of paper. Every legitimate advantage was used to make the edi- tion a success. The result that was attained shows that money, time and labor were generously expended to make this number of special interest to its readers. Photo engraving show- ing city and country scenes and por- traits' of prominent men were to be seen on nearly every page. Special ar- ticles on the growth and prosperity of the city and surrounding country contributed from farmers as well as commercial men. Paper, ink, com- position, pres6work and the most mod- ern of type faces all corn-Dined to make the typographical appearance of the paper exceptionally pleasing. The -Herald claims this number to be the biggest production of a newspaper in a population in Canada. I feel able to concur with them in this opin- ion and would add that it is one of the finest also. W. A. Buchanan, for- merly of the Toronto Telegram, is editor and managing director of the Herald. He has been steadily making good since he went west. His latest venture into the field of special num- bers appears to be the most sue-, cessful of all. pay. binders could bo had for Afty mowers for twenty, and other in proportion.

These rushes are not alone for the few abandoned home- steads close in that are again open for entry. But men are anxious to get land even going fifty, sixty and a hun- dred miles back from a railway to get it. They know they may have'to wait zens have manifested their good qual- bother him News. SUNDIAL COMPLAINS AGAINST LETHBRIDGE Sundial, AprU Again our citi- years to get a railway within reason- able marketing distance. But they know also that by that time the land will be taken up and selling at figures beyond their reach. There is only j one crop of land and the man who wants to get it cheap must go beyond the convenient range of the man money io buy the dearer land close in. The problem of supplying transportation facilities for such a widely extended district is a very large -one, but judging from the way the federal and provin- ities by voting" to establish our dis- trict school and whether our bache- or not they spirit of ad- cial governments are taking up the matter of railways and with the many extensions being made by the C.

The grass is getting green, the flowers will soon be out if the seed is sown. II you are going to spend Good Fri- day planting sweet peas, you had bet- ter see about getting your seed. Now hang up the fiddle and the bow, And take up the shovel and the hoe. There's lots of work for your old man In the time for the sweet peas to grow. The latest cause of moral downfall is Chocolates.

There seems to be a. prevalent feel- ing on the part of some of our citi- zens that they are receiving very un- fair treatment from the Lethbridge merchants in finding a market for their produce, especially butter and eggs. They claim the merchants wiU handle a packed product in preference to the fresh, article produced on the farm, notwithstanding our people pa- tronize them to the extent of hund- reds of dollars weekly for their goods a tenth part- that go to our local stares, almost the entire trade of the farmers from five townships north of the Little Bow is given the Lethbridge merchants while yet they could reach Taber by a much shorter route, and if a more liberal policy is not pursued towards them we believe with a. very short time; weeds will be growing in the Lethbridge trail. We often wonder if farmers will ev- er become siifficiently learned, they promise now to be, especially in the states under the American Society of Equity, to be masters of their own condition and instead of being die- tated to by every organized class Tin- der the sun they will be'able to cal- Workmen's Shoes are otir specialty.

The prosecu- tion offered no evidence in court and the accused was honorably acquitted. Hasty judgments without knowledge of facts are ihe causes of many trn- comfbrtable and compromising posi- tions. The West has no better friend in the East than .the Toronto Globe. It gives full publicity to western affairs and al- ways has a special correspondent at here reporting on the progress of mat- ters in general. As an instance the Globe's desire to place western matters before its eastern readers is the way it treated the despatch tellinr, of sev- enty thousand Americans coining to settle in the West this year. The Globe made it a double column, border fea- ture on the front page. The other Toronto dailies placed "th-a same'des- patch under small headings in incon- epicuous places.
