ECONOMY-OR BLUFF A month ago the burgesses of Leth-brldge elected three pew membe.r8 of the school,board. The whole issue at that eleotioA was economy. R, R. D&vidson. came out flat-footed for certain specific economies and promised general reductions In other directions. Mr. Davidson was elected at the head of the poll. It the other members of the board hold %iews along different lines let thorn dispel them right now. The people have demanded reductions in the expenses of administering our educational institutions and they have a right to expect the real thing- By that we do not mean the lopping off of a.hundred here and a hundred there, making ty/o or three thousand in ail, but what we expect, and what We want, is a reduction of ten. or tirelre pw cent, from last year, This is not impossible, and should be posi-sible of accomplishment pjthout decrease in efficiencyIt may be that some speeding up may be necessary jn one plfce, cpjngiitjatlon of positions in another, and abandonment of lux-yrles. in another, but every business Is doing the same thing, so why not the schools? The school iboard spent close to iUOMO last year. - If the" economy talk of a month ago meant  "j �nyU$lng^itt all, -th*"schools should get ilong on ilOS.OOO to n08,000 this year. Tl}at means one mill less taxes. ANY D� CAN EIL By Taking "Irait^iMs" Says UU is very tniseraUik-tott�n who suffer with I�idl��Uj�V.=wy�peP�i�. Sour StomftrouKht oil by Constipitiott.
