It was distinctly a Travellers' 2)ay, and the. way these dniniincrs �nd knights o( the grip cnmbineil to riiake the day a from their einndpoint, was good to see. Promptly at one o'clock, the dnim-p'Prs, some I'iO in all, lined up for parade at the K. of P hall under the leadership of Marshall ("r>immy. Rv-rry niemher of the procession was i"iUed out with cap, cane and pennant inscribed "Lethbridge." They were 'Ju'adcd by Mayor Adams and led in iniMic by the Ternie band nnder the leadership of C. Zaccaro. Additional jnnsic was svipplied by the Caledonian J'Ipc band and the Clown Band. The JMpe hand under the leadership of d'ipe f'.Iajor .lames Horn, was comprised of ten members and made a vciry creditable showing. The Glenn boys from Wilson Riding were the main factors in the Clown Hanil and this aggregation added a great deal to the mirth and jollity ot the occasion. Their costumes were decidedly ridiculous, and besides the band meni-ber.s several of the drummer boys 1 donned clownish paraphernalia. Such 1 phrase advertisements as "Royal j Shield Drummers", "Miss Keming-toii", "Triangle", "The City of Opportunity, Lethbridge", etc., pinned to the back� of the actors, lent ai\ air of business to the procession. Immediately behind the Fernie Band and preceding the Druninfers, was carried a large white banner on which was inscrihed "The Conwiercial Travellers ; Lethbridge Boosters". Their line of march led up 5th St., down 3rd .We., thence to the'station where the bands gave a concert to the waiting public. Two special cars were filled to their capacity hy the travellers and their wives and lady friends. Taking the 1.30 train to the grounds they disembarked there and once again falling in line maroli-ed lo the grandstand where special seals wore reserved. Ceremonies were then gone through in which an address was read to the Mayor, the M"uihers of the Hoard of 'I'rade, and the different committees of the Kxhi-liilion. Suitable replies were given and then the travellers settled down to the enjoyment of the proceedings. Following is a copy verbatim of the nildress presented to the Mayor and his friends . Knowing that you are all interested  in the growth of the great Do-j minion, and especially the ^'rovincc ] of Alberln, the Commercial Travellers of the City, and visiting, Knights of the grip, have mot here today to help n?aWe this Kxhibition a success. 'I'lie Province of Alberta is the youngest of the Canadian Provinces and undoubtedly the most promising. In innti it had a population of 18'1,-000-today it can boast of over 300,-000. It is larger than the Gernian Kmpire, it is twice as large as (treat Dritain aiul Ireland, larger than any State in the Cnion, and possesses more millions of acres of arable lahd than atiy other Canadian Province. In' area it comprises 10)2,205,600 acres. After making wlial is considered to be a Very generous estimate of about l)0,000,(l|FO acres tor mountain and swampy land, llkcrc still remains, to Alberta's credit over 100,000,000 acres of the finest agricultural land. Alberta already occupies an important position in the grain exporting coinitries oi the worlil. It must be remembered that as yet not three per cent, of the whole area has been Have You Seen 'The Car With the Silent Engine''-Model27? It is the latest development of the "McLmghlin-Buick'' Car. This combination of power and silence, speed and durability, you cannot match elsewhere for the same money. It has caught on with the experts, and would rouse your enthusiasm too The McLaughlin is the Car for You We do not wish you take our "sny-so." Ask a Buick owner, or any man who knows a car. Listen to disinterested comments. You hoar tlicni every day: "Tho Mcl>aughlin is an honest all-round car."- "Speed to burn and a corker to ellnib hills."-"Best imy of tho bunch," etc. The general reputation of a car-its day-ln-and-day-out record-is more ovideure^ of its worth than miles of advertising-columns of records that read like a Chapter in ChroulcleB or ^Be Words Without End of the Denlois' Special Ritual of Praise. Remember-a bap-hazard choice ot a motor car Is like r hasty marriage-repentance Is apt to follow-when it is loo late. It Is hard to gel real lasting reliability in a moderate-priced car.

THE LETTER BOX BUY AT HOME Editor Herald,- 'sir: This subject is one that will not be easily handled until the home merchants co-operate with the press. For example, some of the Lethbridge merchants will tolerate a Moose Jaw-flour mill reproseiitntive to come into theilr stores and demonBtrn.te the, uses of their products, for the purpose of introducing nii outside flour, which we have found inferior to the flour manufactured by iwo of the finest mills of Western Canada right lu I-.eth-brldge. People throughout this locality (Maslnasln, Alta.) are of one voice that Lethbridge (lour is as good as any on the continoni :ind second to none. .Mr. .Merchant think it over-buy at home, and then you can cry "Buy at Mome" with a lots clearer eonselenee. Several dozen I'^iilon's calalogues arrived at our couniry P. C, a few days ago. As a whole not many through here are in tlie habit of sending their money away to (alalogue houses, although u greiii niiny send necaaionally and 1 know of ii few who buy nearly everything lioin ihi' catalogue houses. The whole thing i.^ this-they believe they are being rolibed at home, and claim they can shm' enormous profits after pnyiim tlir freight charges. "Where thore is .so much smoke, there Is usually a little fire," Well, I am sure that in lots of cases, they have mUde well, hut Mr Merchant, it is up to you lo si'.o'.v the iieople that you can sell on a icnsonably small profit as do tlie m.'iil order houses and show up \our iirices by advertising same us Ihoy do. and above all things QUOTI'; PRICKS It Is as I siiy, the .Merchant inuj;! co-oporalo witii Die press, and show tho people thai I hey can buy at honie advanlag^ously It is no doubt becoming iielter by tho thousands of Katon's and Simpson's catalogues coming into this country vegiiliuly, ii looks to me as If cotiilitions could be improved.
