The Using of Waste Products TUB 1ALKLD OF branch factor to ne installed in Lethbridge for the manufacture of building paper, boxes, and other materials from wheat straw, is a. wise'provision for utilizing what are otherwise fre- quently -waste products. Schemes of this kind belong to a true economic policy, and -where possible, they should he enlarged. In this connection we .recall a plan formulated .some little in ITValla.Walla county, Washington. It was for the use of straw in the mak- iug of prairie roads. Although straw has been used there for some' time in road-making, the proposal Is for a bet ter application of the material. The new method is" an improvement o the old, and consists not merely of throw" ing straw into ruts, but of mixing the straw with the soil.. which is eaid to make a road that will outlast even gravel and cindeis The .roads are plowed and graded, and brought to a crown.

A disc cutter cuts the up .ind mixes it.into the earth., .If all the straw works into tile roadbed stran is put on, un- til a.cushion is formed. A steam- roller then packf and straw Into a. hard mat which is said to be as durable as'asphalt, and a road is made that, will, if properly graded, turn off water.

The local Board of Trade wll kindly sit up and take notice, for as f-Iacleod Advertiser says. It will not do to let the. grass grow under our feet.

The igger this city grows the better the urket for the farmers living on their tract. The C. P. R. has a New for Lethbridge .which will bring glad smiles ;when It Is announced. The coal mines of Alberta have had a very prosperous year, and those in the Lethbrldgo district contributed largely to that! prosperity, this is only another reason why the new city council should put forth every effort to induce industries to' locate -hore during the coming year. Industries follow ccal mining. That is observed the world future of Leth- bridge should be .bright. With-the beginning of the New .Year every citizen of_ Lothbridge should become more a booster than ever.
