There are very few cages where street railways pay in cities under 000 population. Where they do, the circumstances are exceptional. A street railway might pay at the start in Lethbridge, as the character of its population is much the same as that of Calgary, and it has adjacent several growing mining suburbs which the line could be extended. to the 'Western, harvest field is the buzz of tile Laurler spell-binders.

Keep 'boosting the Fair. Hake the last Fair on the old grounds a hummer for old time's sake and for the new time's sake. There is no better institution to help along a community than a real good Fair. Everyone who recognizes This and boosts it is doing a citizen's duty to his community. The exhibition directors have done tneir duty in getting a good exhibi- tion, the exhibitors have. done theirs in making iheir exhibits, and the bus iness men of the city have done their snare in making it impossible to do business while the fair is on. Now it is up to the people to do their shore 'by coming to the fair. The Fair will toe good. The best to make it even better is to pat- Side Lights PATRONIZE THE FAIR. To-morrow .the Lethbridge and Dis- trict Agricultural Society Fair opens with prospects of being the biggest and best yet. Entries have poured in from ali over the country to sJiow the 'best there is to'-be shown, and ttat means much, for there is no coun try anywhere that can. surpass South- ern Alberta in the production of any- thing that is in its line. The best of it all will be -at the Fair. Fair has already attain- ed art enviable reputation for its horse show, and buyers and sellers have made the Fair very important from a. business standpoint. This branch will be than ever this year. The indefatigable efforts of the directors have heen rewarded in the certainty of splendid exhibition. Many people hare done their duty by the Fair by entering what they have to show, and it now remains for ill ;the people to show their interest in and loyalty to this important in- stitution toy turning out in large num- bers. The exhibition as such is times over worth the trip and the price of admission. Then, in addl-i tion to the regular exhibition, the soc-1 aety has arranged for a strong racing programme and other attractions. Ev- ery possible preparation has -beec made to give the people s. good time and all the comforts and convenien- ces that can be secured. The Fair is not a money-making af- fair for the directors or for some stock ronize i: support. your fullest possible Sir Wilfrid is always a winner. He pitched "for Moose Jaw against Leth- bridge, and his team won. The church in Spain evidently re- alized that it is the duty of the church not to do anything that may lead to turmoil and bloodshed. With the business arising from the production of a million or more .bush- els of grain that will -be harvested in the territory tributary to it, Leth- bridge will have a good deal of 'busi- ness to do from that source alone this year. t If Guelph fulfils its ambition of he- ing a city without taxation, it will be the greatest booster for public owner- ship of uuaues -chat 'Canada has. The bank clearing house "will ibe an invaluable means of letting the peo- ple of the outside -world know some- thing of the enormous volume- of bus- iness done in this city. It will be an eye-opener to those who still retain the idea, that Lethbridge is a little mining town with a few ranches around it. If the Federal government has its way. Canada's reputation as a produc- er of cured meats for export -will not be stained by any -bad meat scandals. This is bound to 'be a wonderful in- dustry some day, and a reputation for good goods is a. sound foundation for it will never cease. Just im- agine, if you can, the state of Idaho, wild and woolly Idaho, with the booze cut out. A woman who works all week and makes a seventy mile week-end walk- hold to ier a homestead, deserves an extra company. But -every dollar pf profit is used to make the event bigger and better the nest year. It is a Barter section in her own name for peoples' institution to satisfy a public a need. FRANK OLIVER. THE FRIEND OF THE WEST. did not take long for Hon. Frank Oliver, Minister of the Interior, after he returned to the part of Canada where it was possible for him to do business, to order that the homestead regulations .be suspended for a time for the benefit of the homesteaders. As usual he has the interest of the -people on the land in mind, and when he saw that it was necessary for their relief that they should be allowed to leave their homesteads this fall and printer to earn money to make a Jiv- JHg, he promptly ordered it. The man who is helping to build up Can- ada always finds a friend and cham- pion in Frank Oliver. The men who Save been hard hit by the drought Trtll now be able to overcome their setback and the railway and irriga- tion companies that are putting forth every effort to build -their systems to develop the country will be able to Set the labor they need so badlv. Are the people of other cities as frequently victimised by forged check artists as are the people of Leth- bridge? There seems to he a germ in the Lethbridge air that gives men the disease.

"Last week Doc hitched up the old mare, piled his old woman an' the kids into the wagon, an' took 'em over acrost the mounting to where the new railroad's been 'built, jest to see the kyars.
