Your requirements will appear in due course. WATCH THE ADS CAREFULLY They will appear-idaily on "Miladi" page. . August is adnaittedly the quietest period of the year from the merchandising standpoint, and "most merchants are content to "mark time" during that month, satisfied to await the opening up of Fall business. BUT THIS IS NOT OUR POLICY. Our aim Is to do business, no' merely during stated periods of the year, but EVERY DAY OF THE YEAR. : We have the goods-our values are right-^vve confidently assert that our prices are unapproachable-our volume of business and its steady growth testify to that. It oily remains for us to convince you of the wisdom of taking advantage of t'ne special prices prevailing during these 'Daily Events' to fulfil our ambition of making August as good a merchandising month as any in the \ ear. We are well aware that very eitraordinary inducements must be held out to tempt you out these hot days; but a careful study of our daily advertisement will amply repay you and convince you that during this month you can SAVE MONEY! ECONOMISE! EXERCISE REAL THRIFT! The slogan "Buy Now For The Future" is growing rapidly, and a veiy wise slogan it is. Shortsighted indeed is the person who fails to res-pond to il.

Put whatever you wish kept cool in a large pan as you would set it on a refrigerator shelf. Over this turn a pan, and over all a cloth with the edges tucked in tho bottom pan. Pour on water enough to thoroughly saturate the cloth and have a little water in the bottom pan. Set this In the breeze and you will be surprised how cool your iceless refrigerator can be. Or better still fix a narrow box In a shady window. Make the side that grew and was laid out this square was reserved by Sir Alexander Gait for the benefit of the town. ' In those days It became an unlovely space fenced around by low square posts, with a single chain running through, and openings at its four corners. It the old square could only talk, what stories it could tell of many an exciting game ot lacrosse that has been played upon it, and many a royal "row" that has been ' staged there over the decision pt some unfortunate umpire, now doubtless deceased. No doubt' Us earthly old sides wiggled with merriment the catches the breeze of canvas.

The old square has ever boon 0 sharer in our joys and sorrows and was doing Its bit by looking its prettiest tor the visitors. It has for so long been a sort ot hub about which our plans revolve that It was flttlng-'y chosen as the centre for last week's 'ir activities. In no other city In the West is there to be found such a charming and restful spot, nestled right In the centre ot tho usual bare streets and pavements, bringing nature Into the heart of tho city. Regina has a park somewhat ot the same nature, but not so strikingly situated and certainly not as beautiful. The careful planning ot Gait Gardens, Its beautiful combinations of flowers and Its restful seats prove most Inviting to all weary mortals and who among us are not weary^ at one time or another? Old timers will remember tho. days when there present gardens were a patch of prairie, a turning-ground for the ox teams which hauled their loads into tho little village ot Lethbrldge, then In Its infancy. In the old days prior to 18SD these long heavily laden loads pulled Into the city from Montana along tho north side ot the present square and drew up In front of a low frame building, the' headquarters of tho I. G. Haker & Co., whore tho present Hudson Bay Store Is now situated, These slow-moving teams, consisting usually of eight yokes of oxen and three heavily laden wagons, needed a large spaco for turning, and so pulled around In a huge square, lett vacant tor the purpose. This was the first origin ot the present Gait- Gar-dons. ., ' Wlien the old "narrow guage" track was laid Into tho town the dayi of ox-toams passed away and aa full heat of a good strong Alberta sun ran around the cinder paths lhat surrounded it, on a ten mile heat. As time advanced It saw cricket, baseball, football, basket ball each In turn, and the old square will remember the day when it was the battle ground for a huge carnival ot three days' duration when "crazy houses' and "kalamazoos" fought tor supre macy through megaphones, finally departing leaving the scene a mass of confetti that taxed oven the power of our western winds to remove. Finally tho eventful day came when the square was planted about with tall, unlovely, tree-trunks that needed only time to blossom Into their present magnificence, it then remained for Mr. MItchol! to plan and plant and coax It into' Its present luxurlousness, a pleasant contrast to Its old bareness-and a standing monument to the prosperity and advancement of the city. If the square was popular In the old lacrosse days it still retains that popularity, though of a different sort. Always the seats are filled with -people enjoying Its beauties, from out-of-town visitors to mothers from crowded apartments with their little children finding rest from the oppressiveness of heated rooms. Many have remarked their appreciation at being able to use the park as well as to admire \t.. In this connection It leami sad to think that the park superintendent should have to complain of' children wilfully destroying his labor, as was the case in the spring; nor does It exhibit the right spirit to leave pieces of paper and rubbish ly^ng about when proper receptacles are placed there for the express purpose of receiving them. The latest addition to the park Is the very effective flag which was arranged this spring, and which was the object of much admiration last week.
