Carelessness in -this' respecjt' gives opportunity to thieves, and In the tempta- tion offered must necessarily add to the work of the police. In view of this fact, a custom practised in some. cities should be permissible here. -It is that on discovery of anjinfagtened door or window, easily accessible from the outside, tie constable should be instructed to wake the householder, and ^'4o iniorm him' of what perhaps may- be^an act of carelessness, or the work oilsomebody outside. . ' V:' .The- city is gro'wing'aiid is "bound to attract undesirable persons, and it is well, therefore, that the public should help the police as far as they can- in eiforts put forward for their protection. This can be done by meeting the requirements put forward with regard to the safe fastening of doors and windows in unoccupied ground floor rooms. Well, it is commencing Jo look like a little boom- all our own. Quit the crorikers* ranks' arid join the boosters' brigade. They always sing a cheerful tune. There has been another change in the moon. The Calgary Herald, Ed-monton Journal and the Lethbridge News are again predicting the retirement of Premier Sifton and the utter rout of the provincial Liberals. / These spasms come regularly with every change of the night light. Lethbridge has to have as cheap power as any place in the provinco and Lethbrldge is going to get it. Keep your eye on Aid. McCambly and Mayor Hardie. It is only sixty-five miles from Leth-': bridge to CariJ$tton. In that area there: are four annual exhibitions, some of them being run at a loss. How much better it would be for the four to amalgamate with the city show and make one grand big blow Out of U.' Arrangements could be made for separate district fanners' prizes which., would give all the same chance they now enjoy. Every one boost for a Southern Alberta show worthy of the banner portion of the province. Woman's Proper Portfolio  (Mail and Empire)-It was suggested to Wcodrow .Wilson that he choose a woman for the office of Secretary of War. If there is a place in a Cabinet for a woman it should be the war portfolio, for it is in war that the women pay the pipor and should be able to call the tune. ' A Noise From Macleod (Macleod Spectator), The Lethbridge Herald states that the people of the neighboring metropolis are not "wasting any sleep regarding Macleod as a dangerous competitor." It is certainly reassuring to know that the slumbers of the people of Lethbridge are being undisturbed. The information is really superfluous, however, as anyone who knows Lethbridge is quite well aware that nothing short of an earthquake could arouse its inhabitants. Dear Old Tom Sawyer (Vancouver Sun). The state of Missouri Is to mark by an imposing monument the village made famous .by Mark Twain as the home of "Tom Sawyer." The Boston Globe makes the apt remark that the best monument to Mark Twain is a whitewashed picket fence. Every time one passes it Tom Sawyer's diplomacy comes to mind, ^ A Limited Bosom (Edmonton ..Journal). It is a dangerous experiment to try and read the feelings of a man you do not know from the expression on'his face. The Canadian Courier's .Ottawa correspondent,, re^ntly undertook to'^ay ttt&ijfftie 'ijiew Hnegiitoer for MacDohald foundhimself amid lonely and uncongenial surroundings at Ottawa and "that it "was- only necessary to. look at him V to realize that he "would ever so much rather be back on his prairie farm in the bosom' of his family." A matter of fact western--er rises to remark that^A Morrison is a bachelor. The Bank Act IN THE revision of the Bank Act the new provisions introduced are of considerable importance to the general public. These have been the subject of discussion and have met with some criticism. In one particular, however, there is a general consensus of opinion, arid that Is with . regard to the wisdom of making provi- sion for loaning to farmers and ranchers on the security of their grain and ": cattle. With respect to the government, inspection of banks it is proposed to^re- ; quire every bank at its annual meeting o� shareholders to elect an auditor, or auditors, who shall examine into and ; report upon the affairs and condition j of the bank to the shareholders, and I who shall also, when directed by the Finance Minister, make any such in-' , vestigation as he may order, and re-'! � port the same to him. This is not exactly the same as a governmment inspection in the strict sense of the 'word, though probably, if - the proper precautions axe made, it - will; corne' close to answering the � same �purpose. This matter merits ,;vcriticism for-the reason which >Mr. '�A Peter McArthur, writing in the Far-. Bier's: Advocate, very properly points out". This 'is that such an auditor ': would be the virtual nominee of the �v directors,, whose' very' position de- V notes that they must be influential in V the councils of the shareholders. It is '^argued froin th{s that inspection by an .ij.- auditor employed t nominally by the shareholders, but really by the direc-a tors, is hardly the kind to beget con-fidence. -M. McArthur.- implies that though ./-the auditor may be placed in an in-dependent position/in that he would i. be free to act In the interests of the Kishareholders, without fear of dismfs-l�sai by th'a 'directory, yet he may be in-�-...... . .. v.1. ... . '. �*--- ftuenced by the latter. As a contention for this belief he says, "Let the directors of a questionably managed institution choose their auditor in a mere perfunctory compliance.with the law, and they will not, as a rule, greatly fear the report. In this there is a good deal of truth, and it lays, as he states, this form of auditing to the gravest criticism urged against government inspection, viz., that It would lull the public into a sense of false security, making people rely upon such inspection to a greater extent than the facts warranted. In this contention quite a number of bankers are in accord in agreeing that there should be a thorough-going, unimpeachable system of independent audit, or government jnspectlon. In this matter the duty of the fram ers of the new act is quite clear, and the scheme, 0� what is a wiBe revi sion, should h"ot be allowed to suffer by the introduction of mere formal provisions which appear to, but do not really, meet the case. Regarding the proposal in the new bill to make the sanction of the Minister of Finance, or'some such governmental authority, obligatory, in the case of any proposed amalgamation of banks, there is nothing which may be legitimately adversely urged. The proposal to make it require the consent of parliament was reasonably dis posed of by the Minister when the question was raised: The argument against such a course was that delay consequent on parliament being not always in session, would precipitate disaster in the case of a weak bank which was seeking amalgamation with a stronger institution. Banks are as much for the general public as well as for particular shareholders, and In making the necesary revision it should be a matter of real izing the importance of a policy of the greatest good to the greatest number. Let the Chivalry Continue (Winnipeg Tribune)". . Long may the chivalrous habit; of men offering seats In street cars to women continue. In many' places the chivalry does not exist, and we find thls plea made by a journal published in an eastern city: Give up your seat to the women, old or young, on the subways or the cars. It is good for the men and better for the women. No man ever gives up a seat to a woman on the cars without refreshing the entire atmosphere about him. It makes good feeling and sets an example that is wholesome and helpful to society. Constitutionally and physically wo- OjUR POINT OF VIEW j: This winter weather is just what "the country;needs. What? The Montreal Herald is being sued an- -\ ior six hundred thousand dollars. Hear PnV^'j-ilie business manager yelling for help, Lethbridge is the logical centre for a mixed farming area and that fact is evidenced by the incorporation of a cold storage company, a creamery company, and a company to handle farm .products such as hay and alfalfa. men are not as strong as men, and with their skirts are not adapted to hanging by straps. Women furnish, mothers and sisters and wives for the race. These facts entitle them to superior consideration. Best of all, this consideration is helpful to women. It is a constant reminder and inspiration to womanliness-and womanliness is the quality which women must never lose. This little act of daily consideration and chivalric recognition will do more than pleas or platitudes to soften the aggressive and manlsh woman into a womanly appreciation of the glories and privileges of her sex. If every man would try the experiment for a. year, it would change tor the better the whole social atmosphere of the city. Try it, you who read this. The women of Winnipeg, who enjoy living among chivalrous men, should not forget that a continuation of the chivalry dependsllargely upon themselves. If there is a vacant seat in a car, they should go to it, rather than grab a strap near a man and expect him to forthwith offer his seat; a "thank you," or a smile does not harm, on the contrary, it is a particular pleasure to give up a seat to a woman who acknowledges thp courtesy as a lady should. The idea that the finer touches of life should disappear from pur thoroughfares as tne city grows, isnonsense.

He said that war was an ugly, vile thing, and he would always regret the defeat of his arbitration plans. "He said that, when he heard any talk about heroism or self-sacrifice in war he always thought of old Col. Gore. " 'Oh, Col. Gore,' a young lady once cried, 'they tell me that in one of your battles an enemy died to save your life. Is that true?' " 'Quite true, ma'am," said the Colonel, stroking his great military moustache. "'Oh, how beautiful! How noble! Tell me how it happened, won't you?' said the young lady. "'Well, ma'am' said the Colonel, 'it happened like this. The enemy had his gun pressed against my temple, and I ran my bayonet through his stomach.1"-Minneapolis Journ al. nsurance uisi If you are a user of NATURAL GAS, either for healing or cooking purposes, we Tvonkl respectfully request that you call at our office and receive a PERMIT for the use of same. / We would also respectfully call your attention to the advisability of increasing your insurance, as with the lighting of winter fires, your risk of loss is greatly accentuated.

Alexandra Hotel Phone 1343 The Bridge Between The Public And The Merchant -Another way of describing the Her-. aid's circulation,' This bridge is recognized as "dependable." The fact that the Herald's city circulation exceeds the number of dwelling houses in the city, is a guarantee that it carries the store news straight to the purse-holder In the home. Year by year this bridge has been evidenced and strengthened. In the past it has been profitable to both advertiser and reader to journey,over this bridge day by day.. It has also been profitable to the makers of the bridge. No Room "Bertie," said the hospitable host-; ess at a Sunday school treat, "won't you eat some more cookies?" "I can't, I'm full!" sighed Bertie. "Well, then, put some in your pockets." "I can't. They're full too," was the regretful answer.-Youth's Compan-; ion. A Reforming Influence "That automobile I bought has been doing 'wonders for me," said Mr. Chug-gins. "Fresh air and all, that sort of thing?" "It has benefitted me morally as well as physically. It has led me to; avoid intoxicants and to lead a life' that will Insure me as beautiful, an' obituary as possible." He Knew Better It was a bitter cold day, the snow' vjas deep and the sidewalks frozen: hard. A colored man, bundled up in a moth-eaten chinchilla coat, stood-shivering against a building, trying1 to avoid the freezing blasts. Just then another darky, dressed in thin threadbare clothes, and with no overcoat, came out of a nearby barber shop and started up the stTeet,"whistling cheerily. Still whistling, he passed and glanced up at the darky in the big chinchilla coat. The latter took one withering look at the passerby and yelled: "Say, niggah, you can whistle as loud as you please, but you can't make me believe it ain't cold!"-Pittsburg Chronicle-Telegraph.

The Heavy Heroine The late Captain William H. Hodg-iris of New York, who died from cardiac strain that he brought on by reducing his weight 50 pounds in three weeks, hated corpulence, and often regaled his friends with anecdotes that had corpulence for their butt. "I Went to a melodrama the other night," Captain Hodgins said .one afternoon to a police reporter. "The heroine waa fat-fatter than myself. "In the second act she fell overboard, and the herb, a little, scrawny chap, plunged after her and seemed to be having a good deal of difficulty in swimming with her toward the yacht. "As the hero splashed and struggled under his heavy burden a god yelled from the gallery: "'You'll never do it that way, bo! Save what you can now and come hack for the rest.
