Till-: Herald wanted some special jiews features the olhcr tiny. The "matrices" could not be obtained in Canada, so were ordered abroad. They ciinic. anil iilung with them n for customs duly anioimlins to nearly doulilc the cost of Ilic icaluii'b ;il Hie factory. Sol'because this affects the tlcrnld's pockei- hiinU, bill bccnuse it to do with every reader of lhi> Herald, do we mention this matter. It is inn- di-siro lo give the people the best within rea- son. 1ml how is it possible under such circum- stances. If Hie goods in question were available from u Canadian manufacturer, even at double the price, we could not complain. But they are net available in Canada. The Herald is not (he only paper that has complained of this matter. Every newspaper publisher in Canada lias the same kick. It isn't a case of n protective taritT. It's mosl anything else one has a mind to call il. THE ESTIMATES. THE estimates of the expenses of operation of Ihc city for 19i-! hay? la-bled, and at first pause they look formidable. A total of LWfl will be needed, wliicli does not include about SI30.000 for all school purposes. The addition of this latter amount brings the grand total up to approximately However, the estimates have not been adopted hs ycl, and will not be for a week or more. Mean- while the ratepayers will have a golden oppor- tunity to ask questions. That is what they should do. >jo one lias a right to assume that, bftcause have commission government now, all our civic ills will disappear. No one lias any right lo assume any such thing. Nothing should be as- sumed under any form of government, excep Hint the elected representatives are, doing their ijesi. And even Ihen, Ilicy do better when the electors keep a weather eye out to sec everything that is going on. We are inclined lo the belie thai Lelhbridge electors have grown apalhelii fiince last December. Of course there has no jnuch slir in the, civic world since Hie elec lions, but we warn the people that if they vvan lo make commission government a success miisl keep alive lo the civic affairs of the day. So now (hat the estimates have been tablet there, is something important to talk about, auc we shall expect some questions from the puhli before they arc finally done and passed. "When that transcontinental system, (the C. P. R.) was built there were only about four million peuplu in Canada, yel not only has this railway jmlified itsell' linaricially, lull it has become the greatest and most prosperous Imnsportalion sys- tem in the world. Whal (he Canadian Pa- cific has clone, there is every reason to be- lieve the Grand Trunk Pacific and Canad- ian Northern will also do. Like the Can- adian Pacific, these railways will open up immense tracts of virgin territory, rich in all the natural resources that go to make a country prosperous. Furthermore where- as when Ihe Canadian Pacific was iiuilt Canada was practically unknown to the outside world, today she is the greatest land of promise to which intending emi- grants from other countries can look. There is nol the remotest doubl, therefore, that Ihe new territory along our hyo new transcontinental will be sellled at n far quicker rale, than was the case Ihe laud along Ihe C.P.R. A new Empire has been opened up for Canada by the two (ranscontinenlals now being completed, and nobody who looks at Ihe situation in- telligently can doubt that Ibis will result in unprecedenlcd prosperity for Canada, despilp Ihe lugubrious ruminations of the sensational Mr. Bennett." The Montreal journal further pertinently re- uarks that Mr. Bennett is not quite, clear in his statement as two Iranscontinenlals. It presumes lie means the National Transcontinental and the G. N. R., and if so the the .asl named should be placed not on the Liberals on Mackenzie, and Mann. OUR POINT OF VIEW Farm Products Limited have the interests of the Lethbridge district at heart, and deserve the support of every farmer who has hay or pota- toes to market. Lethbridge district comes lo Ihe fore with tlie largest exports of seed wheat. Southern Albcrla is the home of prize winning wheat in competi- tion with the. world, and is perfectly capable of supplying Ihe nest. MAKING A REPUTATION. WHAT Mr. R. B. Bennett says in the West and what he says in the East depends on vrliut ]ic regards his particular vantage ground. Tak- ing the various speeches of the Calgary M. P. he, like an experienced and talented actor, sixes up his gallery and plays lo it. Or at any rate he opines he does, which, after all, is not the same thing. The consequence is that the estimable lawyer has unwillingly established for himself the reputation thnt what he says has lo be taken net a grain hut with an (junce or two of Women escape by ladder from burning build- ing, reads a headline. And Ihe fire was caused by Hie nibbling of mice. Did flic fire really cause iiie hasty exit? We pause for a reply! The new grazing regulalions adopted by Ihe Dominion government will prove frj he a great boon to mixed farming, especially as they pro- vide that a large share of ibc slock grazed must be for breeding purposes. The Glcie'rieii "Call" comes oul in new style tn greel its readers. The name, has been change back again from Hit "Row Valley Call" lo Ihe oh salt. .name under which Ihc paper stalled.

A Few Acre Tracts in The We are selling these aero tracts for Jo acre less (liau what land in tlie same vicinity can be bought for in large tracts. And to this the cost of subdividing and placing on the mar- ket, also a profit on the investment, and yon Have an advantage of close to per acre what land in the same vicin- ity can be sold for when placed on the market. In other words, in buying acre tracts in tlie KAiVE PLACE at per acre, you are buying it for close to per acre less than it would be possible for you to buy land in the same vicinity when it is subdivided into acre tracts and placed on the market. If you will investigate this statement you will find it correct. We sec now that we will nut have enough Acre Tracts in the Kane. I'lace to go around. 3'nople who have inves- tigated tlie location of these valuable acre tracts', which are practically abuf- [ting'the city limits, were not long in sizing up their value, and buying .just as many acre tracts as they could see their way clear to handle.' When the few acres we have left are sold we have no more land in this block (hat we will subdivide or place, on the market soon, but when we do subsivide it we will guarantee the pilrchasers of acre tracts that they can meet our prices and make a good big For the benefit of those who may not have had an opportunity of reading our former ads re this valuable acreage, we will give the location, which is one half mile east of I he city limits and within easy walking distance of the street car line. This acreage is practically level and very rich soil. It has a full water right, the cost of which, including taxes, is Each Acre Will Subdivide into 10 Lota and the Price is Per Acre Terms: Per Acre Cash and the Balance in Monthly Instalments of each; Interest at 8 Per Cent Per Annum Your I UUI !l
