SUBSCRIPTION: In Advance - �1.50tayeai Otherwise - 92.00 a year ADVERTISING: F�r Month 1.00 Per Inch vtadc on a basis approximating in post to that involved in the mtiniitac-iurn of butter and. patrons, could be jommitted to such enterprises .as >hey are in the case of the creameries She government would be conferring ,i. boon on producers and consumers tlike ifi furnishing expert help in pork curing at one or more stations. Such enterprises should be' inaugurated with a view to local absorption lfter establishment by local shareholders and should not become an incumberance to the government. . Altogether the work of the commission has been good. The good- is largely educational and is of value to the producer. It is; Undoubtedly" the case- that with reg'ard'vtp shipping' the large shipper gets quick consideration and the smaller one is not so fortunate. If the small shipper , has grievances they are for state, remedy: they will riot remedy themselves.

It is a pity that the fellpws who have injured our fair name could not be caught and punished. And yet we heard a citizen say yesterday that he did not think a jury could be. secured to convict the men who ns-saul.tijd.the; Chinamen.,t Iftsuch js the case, it'is'a great-deal further disgrace, s ,.,.., .proved that the land was not barren in vogue is rather-emphatically pro-j but producUve..

On the side of production the commission are rightly of the opinion that the government might hasten progress over the intermediate i stage between ranching and farm-' iiig- by instituting feeding experiments with range cattle under suitable conditions midway between those of tlie uosheltered range and the close stall. Though the experiment would be of a simple sort and would not end in the determining of anything that could not be determined by any. cattle-owner, it would luivc- at good" effect by example and .would b� inexpensive. The encouragement of feeding enterprises is j that thc company are a negotiating the aale of their properties in Albertu and Saskatchewan to the governments of these provine- I AllKsrta is in the happy position I that, it possesses as many miles telephone system as the Boll Co. and is not to Ik.' held up by the corporation for n big price for its plant in this province. All the Bell people can oiler to the Government is- the long distance lines from Edmonton through Calgary to Macleod and east to Lethbridge and south to Card ston and thc local exchanges. On account of the strong foothold of this government system in the province at, the. present time the Bell people cannot demand an exorbitant price with any expectation of securing it. Mr. Ciishing, the .Minister of Public Works, knows lluit he holds the strong hand and that he can make the Bell people come to reasonable terms. Alberta is the pioneer in government ownership of telephones, Manitoba being second iu the race. If Alberta had not bean so aggressive in its policy. Lho IJell would not have so quickly realized the growth of the tal now ill be turned towards new new cities, one without a doubt close to the Kooky Mountains and another to the north. Lethbridge will not snftuT in that respect, as there is little possibility of a large city between here and the mountains or between here and the boundary, or to the north to the C.l'.H. main line or r-n tlui East to Medicine Hat. It is well to bear facts in mind. It will pay to keep a close- eye,on the future. . .

McMULLEN, MsMfcr Temporary Office, Oliver Block (Upstairs) ADOPT PROMOTION SYSTEM partly desirable in view of the fact I government ownership idea and Mun-that so much of our stuff is unfinish- j itoba would, have much more dlfflcul- �d and that We have the glut of batcher's stuff always with us. The glut of light cattle can only be reduced by raising a larger proportion f our cow products to export value. The recommendation for the establishment of feeding enterprises is still more in point with respect to mutton. Consumers in Alberta are paying tor mutton prown in Ontario, .the Maritime provinces or Australia '� and our own pheep are boine drawn into feed lots outside the Province to such places as Moose Jaw and � Port Arthur. This is an economic waste and the office of the govern- meut is to prevent it. The recommendation to introduce breeding . atocic for sale at points through the : frovince is intended to encourage the establishment of farm flocks as the range output declines. The opportunity of getting good stock would i� doubt be appreciated and would cnoourage sheep keeping. � The importation of thousands f tons of pork annually has been taken account - of by the commission and they recommend the establishment of a packery in the .centre o{ the'Province. It the prc-pjaration q^pork tor market could be ty in making n bargain. WHAT IT MEANS The decision of two of the largest implement manufacturing concern^ on the continent to erect distributing warehouses hero is significant. It means that the great agricultural development of this district and the opportunity for a wonderful- increase in the sales of implements are recognized. It means also that Ijethbridge is considered the be�t distributing point for the largo district along the lino of the Crow's Xest Pass railway and is an indication that the great wholesale centre of Southern Alberta is bound to 1� this city. A despatch .states that W. IJ. Rogers, u well known manufacturer, is likely to be appointed postmaster at Toronto. !Mr. Uogers may he a very estimable man, but why should thv groverniiu-nt leave the stall' of the Toronto post oflice and select a man from the outside, a man without experience'.' It is true the former postmaster, T. C. I'atteson, was appointed to the position by Sir John Wacdonald, though he lacked all knowledge of postal matter's but thut is no reason why the Liberals should lollow suit. The promotion system should be adopted in the civil service. A� it is now, men who enter the government, service, cannot expeut promotion. The jobs higher up go to party stalwarts. There are exceptions and three instances are to be found in this city, the promotion of J. \V. Martin to be inspector of Dominion Ijinds Otllcos, John Kenny to be inspector of customs, and V. D. Shaw, from the sub-agency at Cardston to the customs collector-ship at Lethbridge. Recognition of true merit and ability in that way is encouraging and should bo generally adopted. It. would bring better I men into the set-vice. As it is now there is very little for the average official to look forward to. j ' In tile cast hockey players find the [weather so cold that ttiey feel like jWeurmg fur-lined sweaters. Out here I baseball players have to wear the summer costume in order to be comfortable. Quite a difference; isn't !.t? One of. our local clergymen, in' a. sermon yesterday, declared the !.: eut i financial stringency was a blessing in disguise. Some People may not see it that way but if the tightness of money will bury the craze for u,r". makt's other" KIad b-v tokens �r speculation for all time to honest regard and friendly feeling, come, it will 1)0 one of the i The world fairly beams with good best ' things that ever hap- ; In theory, the exchange of New Year calls and Christmas g fts is a time when kindly feelings and universal good-will prompt a general manifestation of regard in the exchange ."of calls and presents.

With many of us the aim was to buy i.p real estate no matter where it niip-ht. lie, in order to turn over a few dot lars. A lot of us were caught at the drop of the market and are now trying to look cheerful. , Had we invested the money in legitimate business wo would be today much happier and wearing a few more smiles. The pity of the stringency is that it is hitting the men who arc willing to invest money in sound ventures, such as new buildings and new industries. 'harnessed with the very best of our _ J endeavors. Porseverenco is essential to success, since it is often achieved In starting out upon the journey of a new year an excellent maxim is that which counsels us never to put our hands to anything into which we cannot, throw our whole energies PUBLICITY FOR LETHBRIDGE On tfevcral' occasions the Herald has innde the remark that the O. W, Kerr Co. has done more townri's giv ing publicity to this district than any other concern. No better proof of the fact, could be found than the last number of tho bright, well-printed and liberally illustrated little pub lication, "Kerr's Land Doin's." From cover, to cover it is one continual boost for Southern Alberta NO NEED TO BE^TIRED A young man was asked the other day if he was tired. "No." he replied, "why should a young fellow like me be tired." And why should he? Surely he ought to be able to do the day's work if he observes the rules of health, if he gets good sleep, keeps away from evil habits and glories in his labor. The tired young man Is he who wastes the hours after work. It is he who. sleeps little and carouses much. That is the follow who is rubbing his eyes and yawning during working hdnrs. Some of the mines of the Tass are closing because there is no demand for coal. The cutting oft of many trains by the C.TMt. means a less demand for coal for locomotives. The mild weather is also cutting down the demand. About the only people who delight, over a winter like that of a year ago, arc the coal operators, Somebody' in Battleford evidently wanted to warrii things up and so put the town on fire. A sinner of that ilk will be punished in the hottest place yet written about, Battleford. will be nothing to it. NEW M. D. AT RAYMOND. (Raymond Rustler.) It will be pleasant news for all classes to know thkt Dr. Rivers has already completed the necessary arrangements to fill Dr. Rollin's place with nimther partner, who will arrive next week. A tickling cough, from any cause, is quickly stopped by* Dr. Shoop's, Cough Cure. And it is so'thoroughly harmless and sofe, that Dr. Shoop tells mothers everywhere to give it without hesitation, even to young babies. The wholesome green leaves and tender stems of a lung-healing mountainous shrub, furnish the curative properties to Dr. Shoop's Cough Cure. It calms the cough and heals the sore and sensitive bronchial membranes, No opium, no chloroform, nothing harsh used to injure or-suppress. Simply a resinous plant extract, that helps to heal aching lungs. The Spaniards call this shrub which the Doctor uses; "The Sacred Herb." Always demand Dr. Shoop's Cough Cure, only through a succession of failures in spite of our best efforts, failures are in store for the-majority of tho race. It remains, then, for. us all to do the best we can, under all circum-stances, bearing in mind that races are not always won by the swiftest feet nor triumph in battle secured by the strongest arms. It is not so much tho possession of swiftness or strength as it is the right application of them by which success is insured. 3 lots on Glyn Street, close in, $1600 :-: :-: Terms C.B.
