The Macleod representative boasts that he sneaked a lot of Macleod ad- vertising matter in among the Leth- bridge literature unknown to Mr. Me-! Nicol. The latter knows better than j the former how successful he was and even if he had accomplished his pur- pose, his action was hardly worthy of such a fair and honorable body as that he was supposed to represent.

The popula- tion of the city has doubled, the amount of build- ing done has been, threefold that of last year. The trade of the business men has been unprecedently good, most of the old established firms being able to boast of turnov- ers increasing from fifty to one-hun- dred per cent, or more in spite of the large nonber of new businesses that have entered into competition with them.
