TAYLOR HARDWARE CO GURNEY OXFORD AGENTS LETHSRIDGE Coal to the power house is to he charged in niture at the rate of Jl.'.'J per ton as against $1.17 as heretofore. The increase in price is brought about by the imposition of a five cents per ton ta.x by the provincial government on a!; eoai mined. I'onimi.ssioner Freeman is endeavc.rir-s to have the charge adjusted, as this should apply only to liniip coal wlipreas, owing to the fact that the city does not sereon iis coal, it must pay on both the lump and tlie slack cjal. The mines of the district are not required ij t;> pay on the slack coal unless it sells * for more than $l.(iO per ton. : Commissioner .Meech " also .stated that he had letters from Calgary. Kd-nionton and .\tediclne Hat to the effect thai it would be impossible to have the plans of the different cities t^lio'.ving farm lands and outside snb-diviaions ready In time to presdnt at the meeting of the board of utility commissioners during the second week of September, but an. effort will be made to get along with the arrange-|tiHeni3 so that a further postponement of the government's decision may be urged.

This is a decidedly Just and pro-gres.-;ive step ami one that will meet with tji'o approval of the ratepayers at large. If tlio board in addition, can only land us a top notch male princi-nal und also invent a ciieap and comfortable van for carrying to and from tile sciiool in cold weather the cliildron living in tlie Johnston Addl; tion, Itwill earn tiie lasting gratitude of the citizens and go down in history as a ,Iohnn.v-on-tlit;-spot lioard. Despite tlie dry, liot, windy weatlier our garden trucit is doing twice as well since Dave ,Ienkins, Jr., and Ills tireless Indian pony have been appointed constables tor iiupoundii?g at riight ail cattle and horses found ranging on our streets. Wo hope they pay Davy well for liis invalualilo servlcoii. And we cannot see liow tlioy can v,'ell gel out of giving him a gold modal besides at tho end of tho year. Talking about dogs, we would.suggest tliat a tax of five dollars a month be imposed upon those that bark at night, 'i'o-roll a man of sleep, "That knits up the ravoii'd sleave of care. Tlio (lealli of eucli day'e life, sore labor's bath. Halm of hurt minds, great natitre'ii t-econd course. Chief nourisher In life's feast." is worse than raiding iiis kitciien gar-don. We wonder how liiany citlzena lake thought to lock up, tie up or muz zlo up their dogs at night. 'I'lio tax on tliese discordant steam pianrta would cat-lily defray tho o.tponsoa of the van for tlio Johnston Addition children.

Mr. Alex. CampboU and family ai'o camping at prcsont at the Watcrton Lakes. Among I lie many visitors at the Taber fair on Wednesday and Thtir.^-day, -wo noted .Messrs. Arcliie McLean. M.I'.P., and V. G. Grol'f, of the LothbrUige ilornld. Holh these gentle-men behaved admirahlv wliile in town. Tho new cooler in tlie court house basement with its biirred windows is u powerful incentive lo good conduct. Tho only criticism wo have lo offer oil Mr. S. S. Dunham's excelleni! advertising of Cliiiutauiiua in the Leth- ! bridge Morald ia that lie presents its | claims and merits too modestly. However, we want everyone residing between J.otlihrido and Modicitio ilnl lo read every word lie pens on tliid suli-ject and then lo say "O Solomon, | tlio half has not yet been toid. And all this for .^2.50 nor adult ticket at Taber, August Jlitli to lillli." In addition to Iho program advertised we are lioping to liave with us on Sunday evening, August IStli, at a unioif patriotic service, .Mr. J. C. llorbBman and the Oloii Wolls Cominiuy.

The atten-dan(^o heut out -jil .previous records,. tho gale receipts amounting to over $1,100.00. While the exhibition of liorse-s, cattle and poultry was tho largest and finest soea in the town and surprised and delighted the judges perhaps the feature that aurprlsed tbo ' tenderfoot most was tho display of vegetables and grains for a dry year. It was like an iron tonic io-iiim^and sent him out wondering what a normal season would yield. There wa.s also a creditable display of plain and fancy work as well as home cooking und preserving. Tito prizo lisia will be printed next week in the Taher Times. Tho midway was well patronized, especially the ferris wheel and merry-go-round. Wo were glad to note that the police kept all tondoncles to-war'il gambling in check. Wo would like lo have seen the tent labelled Strictly for men only, no one under the age of eighteen years allowed In' shoved out of tho grounds. AU aucU stylos of advertising aro vulgar, even if they are not meant lo pander to a morbid curiosity. There should bo no exhibition on a fair ground Into W')iich a man could not freely take his wife and 'family.
