Altogether, though the weather man has not lived up to his reputation by sending real Christmas weather with snowflakes and crackling sharp atmosphere, Lethbrldge Is going to celebrate its first peace Christmas In a right memorable fashion, for many events of the past month, Including the Rotary Club Christmas Tree and the monster fund raised through The Herald for Christmas cheer have proven that the people are Imbued with the spirit of goodwill toward men. General Increase in prices Went Into Eflfect i)ecember Two or three weeks ago It was almost Impossible to secure an orange in any store in Lethbrldge, and what were available were very poor quality. Tho story is different today, and Lethbridge will have oranges for Christmas after all. s The reason for the change Is that the new California crop Is �on the market.

The Aultman-Taylor, I Co., dealers in threshing rigs and heavy tractors, have made ah in-' crease of 8 to 10 per cent.,; according 1 to their local agent, W. A. Bll|ng- hausen. The John Deere Co. and i others tell the same story. ) The fact that the duty may go on aijaln in the -'case of small tractors 1 was commented on by a number ot ' dealers. This cliange may take place fin February, and tractors which last ! Spring sold for' $100 to � $1400 would cost probably $ ICO more this spring, except in cases where local concerns have a stock on hand which were brought in duty free. fare accordingly tomorrow.
