City Solicitor Ball explained that it it were stipulated in the bylaw that the property was to be leased. to the Y. M. C. A� again,' it would require an act of the legislature to give thfe city power to make the purchase. The annual payment under the bylaw will be $3,830.-10. . ; The city fathers would not be averse to having a new suite of offices if they have many more experiences like that of this morning. The furnace, which periodically goes on the "blink,, filled the offices with smoke this morning, and. it was only by the introduction of some Arctic blasts, together with the generous use of electric fan3, that the place was made inhabitable. As it was the council meeting was held in Commissioner Freenian's private office. A letter was read from the Bitu-lithic Paving Co. stating that they would send an engineer to make plans for the repairs, to the street pavements. Commissioner Grace Btated that figures would be secured on the cost of paving the 13th Street Subway when the engineer is on the ground; The council authorized the purchase of a new auxiliary motor for the turbo-generator at the power > plant. This will cost $7000 and is to be met by seven equal annual instalments. The purchase is made to protect the plant in case the present plant breaks down, as the remaining generators in the plant are not capable of carrying the load.

We feel that, in this new land of ours you have been among the pioneers. To you belongs much of the credit for establishing a religious centre here.

You have aided greatly the social activities of the neighborhood, which very, materially assists in making life worth living and helps to bind in neighborly fellowship. For those and many other reasons we shall miss you. We want you to car-l ry with ypu to your new home our' best wishes for your success there.1 We hope you will like the winters for their mildness, but not enough to forget entirely your days in our sunny, snappy land. We know you'll like the cool, moist summers, and the opportunities for boat trips, and ocean dips,-but we hope you'll oft-times think of our vast prairies, over which you have so often ridden, and their fields of waving grain. We wish for you health, and all the good things of life. And above all, we wish that God's blessing may go with you. As a slight expression of our appreciation, and as a tangible token to keep old friends in mind, we wish you to accept these gifts. Signed on behalf of the neighborhood, Mrs. Ben. James, D. L.

Pre-1 Bideht Marnoch of the Board of Trade sounds a word of warning, to housekeepers in this regard. He says to the consumer ''Look,out for your-own supplies." There is a big demand for the Southern Alberta potato. Shipments have been made out of this district to Montreal,, Minneapolis, Chicago, Great Falls and many ' other points, and the wholesales and independent buyers are very likely to strip the country of any surplus before householders can provide for their own needs until next July. Mr. Mar( noch Bays, "It is no use enquiring into the high cost of potatoes after all the potatoes are gone," There seems to be little doubt will go higher before the new crop' and the wise man will lay in a supply without delay.
