Scott and Ambrose wej-e present to/protest against the quarantine for measles, stating that it was working an unnecessary hardship pn those who werevshut in, and also,-voicing the opinion that a  strict quarantine for measles was not needed. The health officer explained that under the health act the board bad power to put on strict quarantine if it was thought necessary for the public good, and that the council had no say in , the matter. He' also took the gentlemen to task for kicking, and explained a few things to them in regard to a suggestion that the town be thrown open to the ravages of measles as' it was not a dangerous disease.. When he got through Mr. Ambrose arose and requested that he be allowed to withdraw his previous remarks, and expressed himself. as. willing to abide by what' the health officer deemed proper.

The question of holding a tax sale, which lies' been in- abeyance' for some 1 time, was again introduced. .The ,dis-I cussion which 'followed' showed some i divergence of opinion among the , councillors.

Milk River, Feb. 26.-C. C. Slover, who has been in Minnesota' oh' business, has returned to Sunny Alberta. There is a movement on foot among the business men of Milk River to secure a i/ualiflcd doctor for this district. The services of a physician are certainly a necessity in so large a territory as that adjacent to Milk River and pledges are being taken to guarantee the doctor's salary. Wm. Kinder has purchased a farm of 690 acres four miles east of Coutts, Alta., on the international boundary. This farm was formerly owned by W. H. Turner and Son. The deal wasj made through Qulnn and Madden of Milk River. There will be Sunday school at the! Milk River school house at 11 a.m., March 11. Everybody welcome. George Barrows, who has been taking treatment in Gait Hospital, Leth-brldg'', returned to Milk River last week. Mrs. Wm.

There will be a minstrel show given at the Sleepy Hollow school house Friday night at 7.30. All are cordially invited to attend, ladies requested to bring lunch. A collection will be taken for the patriotic fund. :NT IS LIKELY TO BE FIXED AT $11,800,000 Lethbridge's preliminary assessment for 1917 stands at approximately $11,896,000 as against $12,200,000 final figures for 11)16. These figures were given to'the Herald, as approximate only, by City Assessor Meech this morning; The decrease is due to the decrease in the superassess-ment'.from 25 per cent, to 12% per cent. All the assessment notices for the year have been mailed and are now in the hands of the ratepayers. The court of revision has been fixed for Wednesday morning. March 21st.
