The newspaper men will be l>cre abijut July 3, and Lethbridgc wants to prepare at once lo give them a royal welcome. undertook got its little raps from the cynics, but he was not tlKscour-agod, but instead his confidence in the town increased. True, he was out to make mono.y for himself, but tlw inwstments he mnd Ijcgiu at once to boost the coun-tr.y. We can't have too many ol ihtit sort of iJoopIc, The creation of ue* towns like Ooaldalu and WarncV means much to U^thbridge. They will add grist \o our distributing housKS, aud incidentally help all of us. The "t>ld Alan," in the Cranbrook | lleraM, strikes nt a in that i .town that may exiwt here us wvll and -we quote his comment lelow: i "We heard uf a business man in , Cranbrook the ot'hor day who said I that he pieferivd 'to get his printing; in the east, as he could save ' from i fifty cents to one doUor per t'hou-sand on his lett r liei.'ds ami envelopes. For the .'nko nrgiimcnc, we will grant that such is the case. Wo know Id-inters in the east who aro working for ?8 to SIO a week, and yet th(! Herald pays from Sl(> lo ?20 for tl>c same work. But the point that we would like to bring oi�t is that the men in the east who do that printing for you will never speifd a Cent wi'th .vou or with any olher business man in Cranbrook, if ho lived to be a thousand ycajs old. ami .vou continued to get your priming of him during all that time. On the coii'irar,\, (he l-ditor of the lieraki and his entiiv fortv Luj' everi' dollar's worth of stult that they use olT Cranbrook anordiants. The Iler-akl pa.vs out in wa'^cs uloire beiwoen 34,000 and $5,000 a year, and the iijonc.y is spent right iicre in Cranbrook. It goes to business men and hotel men. It helps to increase the revenues of the merchant. .And what is more, the man �ho does your, printing in the east has never said one word oi' ix-rformed one act for the advancement of ,vour business, or ; for the pro.sperity of the town. On I the other hand, the llera'd is doing something c� that kind week in and ' week out. It is looking- out for the, chance to say soniethi-ng that will j benefit you and live town. Now, there is jusrt one more pointy in this matter. The Herald is not an ob- I ject of charity. It is not bringing up this maitter as a childish play, '� biit as a UMJtter of justice. If this' ofTice could not do your work in a satisfactor.v manner, H would not ask for it on any grounds. But the' Herald has spent thousands of dol-lors lo gi^-o to Craivivrook a first-class printing jdant, and with the material, it has secured the services  ALBERTA REALTY Co.'s MONEY MAKERS Some goal tlwdliiit^ l)rop-fiities in tin; Nortli Wiu-tl.
