The high price of. lumb'er and the difficulty in obtaining carpenters even at big wages aro given as the reasons by many for their not caring to build just at present, but oven with these drawbacks houses must be built if tho town is to accommodate the people who are waiting to come in. Three and four room houses aro renting here from ?15 to $20 por month, and people are glad to get them even at that figure. Apparently It would pay someone to put up half-a-dozen residences. Rev. A.

Dear Mr. Dunham,-While I admire the adroitness of your letter in Wednesday's Lethbridge Herald, I cannot accept it as a justification of the unfairness complained of by the peopl > of > Taber. Being a former resident of the United States and conversant no doubt with the spirit and principles of Chautauqua, you must know that it Is not the plan of this great institution to discriminate, between tho towns, large or small, on its circuits; but, as far as possible, to give all equal treatment. For this reason tho management does not approve of nrt-lats returning to towns whore engagements have been already filled. Chautauqua entertainers have their Sundays free, but if they feel like using .their gifts on that day they are encouraged to heSn out in tho towns where they may tlian be programmed. 1000 acres on Monday. This big "farm'Having this principle In mind, Mr. Is situated about live miles south-west ,'Muntoll, tho advance agent of our r,Our s: amid Ison Electric Seals and fine. styles of Sets. of the receiver within easy reach. Any .posed to claim equal honors at least reasonable request on your part would j with tho Breezy City of Alberta. of Burdett, and like most of the big fields around here a very favorable yield is expected. HIGH RIVER (From the Times). Four sons in tho war, is the record of the Stoness family of High River. Only last week mention was made In these columns of tho winning of a military medal by Pte. Marold Stoneta, who is at the front with his brothers Harold and Elmer, and now cornea the announcement that the eldest brother, Ray, has been selected in the first draft for the American army.' He is at Butte City. This Is the entire family of boys. , The sale by auction ot twelve cow* our commlttst Chautauqua and Mr. Hovis, our sup erJntendent, both experienced Chautauqua men, encouraged us to arrange for a.Red Cross meeting Sunday, August 12th, assuming that our Saturday artists, if thoy took on work at all on Sunday, would help us out. And, knowing that no one In these days, except for the best of reasons would refuse to aid tho Red Cross work, we went forward and planned for the meeting as suggested. Would it not have been Just and courteous on the part of your committee, before even approaching Miss Ward or Miss McCormtck to have made enquiries as to whether Taher purposed holdiag a service on Sunday or not? You had a phone and ... ftt t|ie other end Portage have been graciously conceded !>y our Committee. But we do not like the other way in which it was done. Your Sunday program may have been the result entirely of fortuitous concourse of artists as you suggost. But wo found on getting in touch with our entertainers as soon as possible after their arrival in Lethbridge that they had already been pledgol to return'to your city for Suniluv, aid wo found further your fortuitous Sunday program published in Saturday's Herald. We remembered then i.uat there a,re more ways than one of killing a cat. With respect to Captain Hindley, you are putting him, as well as the Taber committee in a false light he-tore the public. He was not askod to cQine,horo for Sunday evening. He was asked to address men's luncheon at 1 p.m. Monday, tho day of his lecture, and ho was asked at the instance of Mi?.' Hovis who wished at that mooting. to put up to tho mon of the town the Renewal of the Chautauqua contract.' - ; *-: We are : glad that Lethbrldgo lias dono so nobly for  Chautauqua In Western Canada. It is too had though that the cow that has given us so much Chautauqua milk-in the way of froo advertising-is disposed to put her malodorous hoof into tho overflowing pail, After nil it takes more than ono rose to make;' a summer, and more than one enthusiastic town to make a banner Chautauqua circuit. While such small places as Cayloy,'Vulcan, Macleod and .Tnber have not the tomerlty to dispute with Lethbridge its claim to be "the pioneer town to bring Chautauqua to Western Canada,", we opine that such cities as Medicine TOtj^Jfcwa*WW Regina, be dla- The most disappointing feature I find about your letter, Mr. Dunham, Is that there is no expression of ro-gret with regard to tho mix-up that lias occurred, nor any promise of amendment for Hie future Only shock and surprise that we should bo perturbed at all at tho action of the Lethbrldgo committee. . In fact your profession nf honoring Tabor for trying to secure Captain Hindley from you, If taken seriously, hardly leaves us guessing as to what may happen next year. 1 can assure you that my object in writing these letters is not to engender strife, nor preach you a homily, but solely to convoy to the Lethbrldgo committee in a frank, kindly way, how Ave feel in Tabor with respect to: the matter under consideration with tho hope that this will forestall any such clash in tho future. We don't want an octopus on our Chautauqua circuit in Western Canada. A. C. BRYAN, Chairman of Red Cross Meeting. Taber, August 24th, 1917. Fall Opening DAY SCHOOL-Tuesday, September 4th.
