Before he had got his Herald yesterday afternoon, a iady him up saying that she had seen the advertisement m the Herald and had the watch. For quick returns there .is nothing to beat the Herald ads. A. reporter of the Herald visited Tavlor's ereen house, corner of Bart- lett and London Road; It looked spring-like to see the lettuce and radishes growing- so large. There is an extensive stock of in- cludinc carnatians, lilies of the' val- ley, hyacinths, palms, ferns, begonias, Easter lilies, and sweet peas.

Wt none bttter "When Father .Comes Marching Home." The officials may not be very badly scared, for they seem to have hypnotized the council and do as they please. But things will be different when Dad gets home. Even though he has fallen down before thein a couple -times he generally keeps them to their knitting in pretty- good shape and makes them do a lit- tle toward their original sal- aries if not the augmented ones. But it will be the Council that will come in "for Dad's attention. If he isn't too mad he will crack a smile or two when he reads the minutes of the past councils and sees how sys- tematically they kept sacheting back- ward and forth, turning somersaults and swallowing themselves. Dad's first inquiry will likely be "What the deaavil have you fellows been If I can manage it I'm going to Dad's first Council meeting if he has had time tr> ]nok things up before he The Council should issue a man-1 date of extraordinary severity to the official wliose duty it is to see that the by-law regarding sewer connec- tions is carried out. It is a darn shame to see the way some people are making typhoid ond other disease breeding places in their There are houses on the main streets whejro ?ewer pipes have been laid for years which have no sewer connection and many of them have no cess- pools made. "When Old Sol begins j to get a little warmer and shines j longer at a time there will be some i howling smells arising from some i yards and buildings in this town, j What- is the use of a man putting in i sewer connections, if his neighbors j are going to pass up to him all i sorts of disagreeable odors and dan- j gerous germsr This burg is the worst i I know for passing by-laws, swearing by all that is high and mighty that j they shall be enforced and then ap- j pointing no one to look after it. Pub- i lie health as well as ordinary decency demands that this by4aw be strictly! enforced on white as well as Chinks, i Another matter that is a first cousin to the last is that of dumping all sorts, of muck and rubbish on the streets. It was >a .beautiful sight to see several waggonloads of mud damped out of the Coaldale Hotel cellar and then piled up in a nice little heap like a grave in the mid- dle of the street. I wonder the, Board of Trade Photographer was not sent along to snap the sight for the city's publicity literature. Of course., is an explanation for it all. The of- ficials always have a plausible excuse' for all their actions that such dumb I fools as an ordinary citizen deigns to j criticize. But all the explanations in the world don't make that heap of muck in the middle of the main street look any better to the naked, unknow ing and unofficial eye. THE new "Queen Quality" styles are unmistakably aristocratic shoes. You instantly note an air of quality about them. They are the vogue with women particular as to style. But correct fashion is only the begining of satisfaction in "Queen Quality" Shoes. They are com- fortable from the first, because they fit the foot as a Paris- made glove fits the hand. We want you to see the new styles we are now showing at and Chief Gillespie has a crow to pick with Dad when he gets home and it looks to me as if he is right. In the new city building, the police quar- ters are'little if any better than the old ones.. The chief has no private office except outside the back door. The public has to go through the room to get to'the police court room which is about fourteen, by eighteen by twenty feet high. It would be a dandy if it could be on edge instead of standing it on end. The cells are cooped up so that a drunken man anyways ob- streperous can make it awkward for! all the police there is room for.. The j whole arrangement is about as un- suitable as it is possible to make it and if the chief feels warm around :he collar there is small wonder. Even if the offices are only for a year or two or maybe ten, they might just as well have been made with some sign of common sense. I do not know be- or whether they have :.been changed since, but the police quarters are cer- tainly a sight for the architectural gods now..
