Ho was in consultation with iijyiuebres of the council, but at the present writing nothing definite can be obtained as to arrangements, although i the survey is under i Call. At the annual meeting of the GJeieh- j en Board of Trade last week T. H.j Beach was elected president of the board, and W. Park Evans secretary. Elijah Heathcotfl, formerly Mne In- spector for the Province of Alberta, is to be the mine manager at the Lekdi Cards MEDICAL ave apparently decided that their tac- ics are not producing i.he goods and are now probably contemplating enter- taining the politicians at pink teas in order to see if reding the brute will be any more effective than throwing bricks. THE CENSUS A population of over eleven thous- and people is something of which the city of Lelbbridge as a. whole has a right to be proud. This number in- cludes the village of Staffordrille, which to ail intents and purposes, is a part of the city. A year ago last De- cember when the census was last tak- en, the city proper had slightly over six thousand thousand people, and with StaffordviHe numbered approximately seven thousand. The increase during the past year, therefore, has been about forty-two hundred, or at the rate of sixty per cent It is safe to say that there is not another city or town any thing like its sire that Has made such an increase during the same period. Outsiders who may be somewhat in- credulous that such a growth is pos- stole. The figures are the people's own, filled in on sheets given them by the police, and therefore are, not in any way padded. On the other hand, however, many have been missed, as the people who were not in when-the police called for the sheets, and it would not be at all when all the returns are made that the figures will be well over yOU HAVE NO DOUBT HEARD u good deal of talk about British Columbia Fruit Lands. Everybody who has spoken to you who knows the true conditions has spoken favorably Isn't that so? The fact of the matter is that B. C. Fruit Land is going to be u big thing in the next five years. It simply can't help it. It will produce fruit, it has tho MARKET and the ciiiuute. We studied the B. C. Fruit Land situation thoroughly before we invested our money. "We are convinced of its future. And from our Knowledge of investments we Know that B. C. Fruit Lauds will live up to our most sanguine expectations. They will make money j'or every-one who invests now. It is indeed the opportunity of the hour. Our Fruit Lands on the Arrow Lakes will eventually become very valuable because of their choice location and because they do not require irrigation The payment of down aud per acre per month secures a fruit farm. Call and pick out ji 10-acre plot. There is surely no better .Investment on the market.- Furthermore you can become independent quicker by buying ami working a fruit farm in H. C. than by any other means because two acres cleared and put into smali stuff will give you a living while your trees grow to dollars and your laud increases in value.

But the Next Place Above (Calgary Lethbridge is reaching for next place to Calgary amongst the cities of the Middle West. He'll Get it Alright (Calgary Don't go away with the idea that the Daily News is a booze-fighters' or- gan. There is a larger water-wagon staff on this journal than on any oth- er paper of its size in America, but there is no reason why it should not take exception to the indiscreet and unreliable statements of Imported temperance lecturers. Admitting that booze fighting is the devil, The Daily News will give even the devil his due. r Side NUMBER THE STREETS To return to a subject dropped for a time, but not forgotten, to be revived now that the matter of street mail de- livery is to the fore, is it not about time city council were adopting the method 01 having the streets and avenues numbered systema'tcally? The Herald has advocated this change In season and out of season almost to weariness. Supt Ross, of. the postal service, now.advocates a more modern system and says it would aid very materially in the successful working of the ser- vice. There are some, doubtless many, to whom the names of the streets bring memories and retain honors. But 'compared wth the whole population they are few. That sentiment amounts to really nothing. Others may say, larger cities keep ibe names. But that does not say tiiat the numbering is not the better system, and that the cnange should not be made before the city gets so large as to make the change a difficult matter. It will be some little trouble now and possibly some expense, but these will be greater as time goes on and it will nave to be done some day. The sooner it is done the better.
