Tho ono which the should most zeal- ously guard, is her health, but It is the one most often neglected, until ailment peculiar to her SKI has fastened itself upon her. When so af- fected such women may rely upon Lydia E. Pinkham'fl Vegetable Compound, a remedy that haa been wonderfully suc- cessful in restoring health to Buffering H harvest they worn working for tho olty at moderate salaries. I Jinny of'the city employees are sup-' porting families on salaries they] are galtlHg. Compared with bank employees, our Bluff la galling only very fair salaries. While- In one or two cases the sal- aries may be a little 'high, on tho oth- er hand there an many, owing to recent olnngos, that arc without ques- tion underpaid, tor the responsibility that devolves uuou them. If only higher salaries are ru- duced tho savins will amount to less than pur annum, and If most trenchant reductions, slashlne in directions, were applied, the savlni would not be over S5000 per, year, an- alnst which would have to be estimat- ed the depreciation In service due to discontent caused by reductions. 1 know of ono city that, on account ot tho Innffldency in the civic ser- vice caused drastic re- ir-ditor, Herald: 1 am not in favor ot considering reducing tho wages ot the city employees, excepting In tho j case of the commissioners, and one or two others. 1 only sanction Mie consideration of the commissioners' salaries because 1 am directly Inter- ested. If I vvure not directly inter- ested, I would oppose it, -because I know for a fact that the commission. era urn diving full return for every men who are prguing cent they set without any claims be- drMtlc reactions are doing their Ing made upon It. I know from my 'c much harm bv reducing own experleucfc that very large c alms buBH CBS muon n are made on the commissioners' sal- aries. I am willing to produce hat economv is nocJ- bank book show that I have spent, HlnltSi but life all other cent of my salary in U14 for, thjngs lt can' hc! too far mv'iseainst the intereatr, of the city. Why should cltizmm donuinJ cuch tremendous reductions In ctvlo aalar Jos, when not word ia euic! ubout ductlon of 'Provincial or .Dominion zalirieB? Are our clthonij less citizens of AlbortB or Canada than Lethhrldgc. )o they think because the direct taxes are nearly nil iu Province and Domin- on that they do not pay rteir full tharo oE the cost of these govern- ments? I hope none are RO fooliBh aa ;o think HO Have the C.P.R., or any other cor- )orfltion. comparable with 'Lethbrldgo ilty, reduced any important officca, or clerk's salary? Show me a alngle one. When times are good (ho higher of- ficers have a relatively unsy time, and it IB when times ar.-> bad that these men are most needed, and they Tiave Lo do the hardest work. Again ask any business man what he would expect If lie had paid n faithful servant per month We Compound will help to IjydiaE.Piiikham MediclneOo. (co nfi deritial) for ad- ficc. Yonr letter will be opened, read and answered by a and held iu strict confidence. With a very few exceptions our salar- ies aro not aa high as In other cities, because priming has been going on for quite il long time. The actual cost for tho performance of the duties of oach sllhuivision of any department, a dnpartoient. and the departments as a 'whob IB as cheaply done in Leth- I bridge mi any city In Alberta. Many of the dtyemployees entered the city's service in prosperous times at a relatively low salary, on account of a cradlng that included annual in- i creases', consequently who tion or increase by the annual pro- cess. They are mostly all relatively young men who 'have devoted them- selves to the city's work without in- dulging in any other business of a speculative nature or otherwise, so thai iviiiic uuauieaa men were reaping am in favor of the greatest pub- but there is a very great dlf- :e between publicity and agita- tion. Publicity keeps things straight and everything up to tbv maximum of efficiency. Agitation upaetB every- thing and destroys confidence, which I have learned to my sorrow In deal- ing with city financial matters. I am always in favor of publicity and that is the reason I supported the Board of Trade's resolution. It brings out facts in favor ot tho city government that might otherwise he a smouldering volcano because of wrong impressions. If. instead of the resolution calling for drastic reductions, it had called for a statement showing cost of sal- aries, and the Bearing this cost had on the city's operating cost, it would have been publicity instead of agita- tion, anil in this way would have been perfectly in order, and would have accomplished the most good.

To the Voters of the Lethbridge School District: Ladies and I ask for your vote and influence to elect me as Trustee for the coming year. I do not promise, to dis- miss half your staff; this is not economy. If you are getting1 an efficient management at the least possible cost, you have no cause to complain. Remember, that if you stint the child's education for the sake of a POS- SIBLE saving of a quarter of a mill on your next year's taxes, in after years the child will be the sufferer. I have been connected with Ihe Public Schools for eight'years, and am fully acquainted with the duties and responsibilities of a Trustee.

Before closing let mo remind my rcadorB ttiiit IS the most drastic re- ductions are mado. only of it will go towards reducing tax levy rate, tho balance of tho will come out of nubile utilltlee. There is the further fact that u aov- j eminent Investigation is in re j a living 'wage, If matters are pushed j much further. If all salaries able to taxes are reduced as above, a man paying of taxes would i now pay 599.70, a saving ot 30 cents per hundred dollars. W. D. L. HARDIK.
