Don't forgpt tliat Lethbridge is the only city In Western Cnntida which can lj�y claim to all thi'ce of the advanced id^cas. municipal ownerB*ip, straight cominlssloti form of government and the single tax,. Make that a talking-point. 'I'ell everyone about It Let the woild Know that Lethbridge is progressive-alive. Commission Government BY A SOLID MAJORITY the rate, payers of the city have express, ed their desire tor a straight tor mof commission government. In this they have voted wisely. It cannot be said that the action lias been rash, for the subject has been in their miiids for some time. They have had opportunities of turning it over and discussing It, and the outcome ran be reckoped to be one of careful and serious consideratioti. The Heraki has been strenuous in its advocacy of the new form of gov-finraent. It lias treated the matt"r in an impartial spirit. It has not kept out ot its columns any arguments against, or opinions expressed contrary to the policy, it has been particularly careful that the public should have both sides of the nnes-tion. 'I'herefore, to us it is particular satisfaction that we have been instrumental in so placing the subject .before the people t-hat they have ajy- preciated our efforts, and seconded them by their declaration at the polls. It now rests with the ratepayers to siiBtnin the int?Test. I.,et the waitin.? time, before the new government supplants the olcl, be spent in strengthening and organizing the different ratepayers' associations. They will be of much service in the fiituro. Let the spirit of interest in civic matters be .cultivated by giving atteption to the doings and the deliberations of the council. Then when the time comes all doubt expressed as to the movers in the initiative and recall will have vanished. The success ot the new government .will rest on the people. They will have initiated it, and it is up to them to see. that no one of its opponents v.ill bave the opportunity of holding up the finger of scorn, and saying with unction, "I told you .so," should matters go against the general expectation. . . Shop Early As THE CHRISTMAS'anniversary approaches the desire tor pnrcha.sos customary to the season is wont to'place a severe' task oii the employees in the different stores. It is not only the various bands within doora who feel the strain, but it, likewise, effects those who do their business outside, such as carriers and drivers of teams. This is eause\''l by a procrastination on the part of the buy jtig public, who put oft their Christmas shopping until practically the last week. In this respect a good many people do not stop to think of the hardships they impose, in the way of leijgthened hours and strenuous times, on those who serve them. Therefore, it is not inappropriate to bring the liiatter of sliopping eaiiy to notice. Here is an opportunity for practising thai, good will which is recognized as a duality to be particularly in evidence at Christmas time. By making their purchases in good Wisi T*'"* No Objection (Vancouver Province) Lloyd George does not object to a minister of the gospel being made a vicarious saerllice for a tuinisler of state when assailed by a militant suffragette. No Monopoly Here (-Mail and Empire) ^ ; Father Biirke says that.ihey drink too much la Vancouver. He mentioned Vancouver especially, but his remarks would apply to any other town or city in Canada. Are Not Afraid (Winnipeg Tribune) Ttie Presbyterian ministers bave about ten laps lead on the ministers of other denominations in the denunciation of wrong-doing and the prostitution of jusUce in the fair province of Manitoba. So Is Alberta (Victoria Times) The success ot Alberta's five million -dollar loan, which was recently underwritten in London, proves that although one or two receui flotations did not produce the expected results, investors are still ready to provide the capital necessary for the develop, ment of Canadian resources on reasonable terms. Canada is all right. time, prospective buyers -will do a great deal to lighten labor which I thonghtiessness renders necessary.! Let'us'all imbibe the Christmas spirit and act up to its sentiment. Even from a selfish point the practice of shopping early is advisable. Goods at this time are in the process ot selection apt to be bandied a good deal, and .consequently, may not be so fresh as when first set out. The early buyer, therefore, must needs get the better of those who come after. Nor are men and women only to be remembered, there are the horses who are quite as much In need of consideration. We trust the public will bear in mind what Is due to those who so cheerfully attend to their requirements when on buying bent. Let each one so act that he will have the consolation of not being the means of sending home for a Christmas rest shop assistants tired out In mind and body. � The Easy_ Way ' (Tortinto Globe) It wiH be e.-igy lot' .Canada to give $35,000,000' for' the naval| defence of the Eiinplre. It woul-d be'difflcull for Canada to train and maintain men, witliout whom warships are worth-leas. Therefore-" Mr. Borden, looking for the easiest way oat^ -gives money, not men.

Hambo had been making a night of it but was still :\ble to navigate, and was on his way home, with some assistance from Baldwin. Feeling in his pocket tor a stray coin, he started uii the steps of tlie university building. "What now?" asked Baldwin. "I dunno w'at sloon this is," he mumbled, "but its music m'chine's all ri', an' I need Jes' one more drink!" "Just for a joke^ 0 The Conference for Peace THE ANNOUNCEMENT of the co-ntercnce in London removes all fears of the alarmist that wo shall witness an Armageddon in Europe, as a result ot the Balkan war.

That the power ot Turkey will be much clrcumBcrlbed tliero can lie iio doubt, and in this there Avill be something of satisfaction. Bulgaria is to bo complimented on its action la not countenancing the protraction ot the war until the fall of Constantinople'. It has displayed considerable wisdom in foreseei-iig the inutility ot what it agrees will be an empty triumph. The Balkan .States have earned the admiration of men in the way they have conducted the campaign. They have tauglvt the world a lesson in patriotism, and the reasonableness they have at present dis played will tend still further to raise them in the general estimation. However, some men may declaim at the modern rlValry in armi^ments amongst the nations, they cannot but pcrcoivQ by now that in the long run it works for good rather than for evil. With the deadly power for destruction each nation possesses they cannot but view with appreliension the outcome of war. The calaslrophes which Ho ahead must act as safety-viilves for curbing any Impetuous action. The -tear of one another Is the best safeguard for general peace. It is well that this should be recognized by those who are averse to a country's piling up ot armaments. Though the action may, at first, sight, bo one to \>o disapproved, yot it the resultant is a guarantee of peace the necessary expenditure must ultimately result in the welfare of all, Tlio anniversary ot the birlli of the Prince of Peace will soon be wlllv us, llio conference meets at a timely mo ment, and may all deliberations end in a conclusion llitlnn to the Beason. Waiting "Have you done your Christmas shopping yet, .Mrs. WortblTigton?" "Part of it. I've bought all the things I intend to give to my own relatives, but I thought I'd wait until the goods got a little shopworn and they began to mark them down before getting the presents we Inten-d to send to my husband's folks." Chriatm.ns Aphorisms (By Harvey Peake in Judge's Library) Never look a gift in the cost mark. Mistletoe makts the heart grow fonder. All that glitters is not a diamond.

Buy gifts in haste tuid repent at leisure. And thereby hangs a stocking. Gifts are seldom what they seem'. - Every Christmas tree must stand on its own bottom. ' Uneasy lies the head tiiat's planning gifts. Santa Claus is not as red as he is painted. One Cliristmas bargain sale makes the whole of womankind spla. Gifts make the man, the want of them the fellow. To give hideous gifts is human, to forgive impossible. Of tv.-o undesirable invitations to dinner, choose the least. It is a wise merchant that knows his own goods when it is brought back tor exchange. What is sauce for the goose is not sauce for the plum pudding.
