THE announcement in our columns today that a local comptmy will in the spring erect a cold storage plant in Lethl)ridge is certainly cheering, and the additional information that the Dominion government lias granted a subsidy of 20,000 to aid the project is still more cheering. We are pleased not only because it promises a fulfillment of an agitation which the Herald has carried on for a long time, but also because there never was a time in the liistory of the south country when such an industry was more needed. The farming industry bids fair to develop all the dlversLBed sides of farming witliin the next few years, and for the dairy, poultry and egg and truck garden branches of our most important industry, cold storage facilities are absolutely essential. The industrj' deserves loyal support. It is adapted to the countrj''s present needs and should therefore appeal to investors. It is a valuable addition to the city's industrials. It will fill a need. What more could be desired? wheat, what of those Conservative papers which have taken it for granted, and have indulged in such flattering references to Statesman Borden who is sitting up niglils thinking out plans to help the west. No doubt he will be quite as great a friend of the west even if he does throw the farmers down again. Anytliing goes. Both hands held up wliile voting. REGISTRATION OF VITAL STATISTICS. THE figures shown in the report of vital statistics for the j'ear are disappointing so far as the birth rate is concerned, and the Herald, along with the medical health ofhcer, cannot beUeve that the report is correct. Not that we blame Mr. C. B. Bowman if such is the case, and not that the matter is one of very great importance to the community. But the law requires the registration of such statistics, and if it is worth doing at all, it is worth being made accurate. Under present conditions it seems hard to compel registration of birth. This might be made easier if the registration office were in the city hall or court house. Probably the government will see it that way and make a change. No statistics at all would be better than what we are now compelled to accept. It is a simple matter but the Council or the Board of Trade might endeavor to effect a solution. In Ontario, the city clerk is registrar of such statistics. This suggestion might be a start. IS LETHBRIDGE IN WRONG. T'HE general superintendent of the C. P. R. * states that the peoples in the tillages and towns on the Aldersyde hne asked for the change in the time schedule which shortens the time available in this city to about an hour. It is difficult to understand why the people in Noble, Barons or Carmangay should take such a stand. They have very httle or no business to transact on the Macleod branch, south of Aldersyde, and the Herald doubts if the towns north of the Little Bow river contribute much traffic to that system. If the business men of these towns asked for the change it must have been for some other reason, and Uie Herald thinks it is an imperative duty that the Board of Trade should ferret out the real reason. The business men of this city have held get acquainted excursions to these towTis and were always received with the utmost friendliness. There was nothing expressed but the kind-Uest feelings for Lethbrldge, and certainly not the slightest hint was given of antagonism. The Herald does not believe that the business men of the Aldersyde line towns are so small as to advocate a policy of trjdng to make the people of their districts stay at home, and one could hardly conclude that such a policy would prove popular. There are no large towns on the line as yet, although in time there doubtless will be places of importance. The sting in the telegram sent the Herald by the superintendent lies in the fact that Barons and Xobleford should ask for the change. Was it due to opposition to Lethbridge, or merely the usual assenting to a proposal without giving thought to its real intent. OUR POINT OF VIEW ALL READY FOR THE BOOST. E\TERY business man in the city should make it a point to attend the luncheon and smoker in the S. 0. E. hall Friday night. There will be sounded a note which will send the hearer home thrilled with optimism and hopeful of the future. There is certainly no reason why any man should lose faith in his city, and nothing to show "that anyone has, but it is as good as tm invigorating i tonic to get together and talk about plans for shoving the good things along. Life isn't all drudgery, and the social side should not be neglected. Often through a social gathering there is set rolling the movement which gets everyone talking, � thinking and acting along the right lines. Civic patriotism is a mighty factor in building up a community. Let us all get together in one big boost for the best city in the best province in the best country on earth. Be one of the best men in the best city. V. �- THE FREE WHEAT ENIGMA. AND now it may not be free wheat after all. That is the news that comes from Ottawa, and only time will solve this great poUtical enigma. One day it is, the next day it isn't, and there you are. And to think that the Calgary Herald �wallowed its loyalty and put the old flag away long enough to endorse the proposal. Now if the Borden government yields to the interests opposing free wheat the Herald will have to bring the flag out again and there will be flapping loufl im-bughito drown the noise it made in the interests pf the western farmers. >^ And if the government doesn't grant free Now that we are experiencing hard times how would it do to fatten out the banking average by earning that thirteen thousand offered for the capture of Krafchenko. If Lethbridge has a low birth rate as stated at the Board of Health meeting, where in the world are all these children coming from Avho are crowding the schools as fast as they can be built. On quiet days when news is scarce it will be quite the popular thing now to start stories of Krafchenko having been seen in town. He has already been seen several limes in Calgary, but of course the bartenders in that flourishing burg always mix the drinks a trifle strong. Pincher Creek council is well advised in disputing the right of any bond buyer to cast reflections on the validity of a bylaw without showing good reasons for so doing. It looks very much like a trick to escape litibility in an option. There is too much of that kind of work on the part of eastern bond houses. The various churches holding annual meetings this month do not reflect much of the hard times. Nearly every church reported gratifying incrt^ases along all lines. The churches are the most valuable tisstl the comniuuity has in maintaining a high standard of morality and regard for law and order, and should receive the utmost of generous support, ... To Breeders of High-classHorses We have brought into Lethbridge a number of the best IMPORTED STALLIONS ever brought into Alberta, These horses are for sale and we invite you to look them over. The following is a represenative list-there are others in the number: Pedigree of the Hackney Stallion, Nanton Astonishment, 9994 l3 a strawberry roan, of elegant Hackney type, and exceptional pedlsfree, his grandsire being by the word-famed Daue-gelt 174-tlie sire of more winners than any horse, dead or living. Nanton .Vstonish-ment was foaled in 1905. He is one of the most brilliant goers in Canada, his shoulders, knees and hocks working grandly. He has won in the best ot company, and can, and will win again. Farmers should take the opportunity of using him as he is descended from parents who have made themselves and their stock a household name in the horse world. Prizes won:: 1st and Special, Ramsbottom, 1st Colue, 1st Darwen, 2nd Worston, 2nA CUtheroe, 1st Whally, 1st Great Han\-ood, 1st Cllviger, 1st Padiham. It will be seen that he Is bred from the very choicest strains o� Hackney blood, having no less than three crosses of Denmark blood in his veins. Many of the greatest Hackneys of the present day are descended from Denmark such as: Dane-gelt, sold for $25,000; Connaught, London Champion, now serving mares at ?75 a mare; . Ganymede, London Champion, also serving mares at $75 a mare; Candidate, London winner; General Gordon. London Winner twice; Rbsadore, London Champion in 1S9S; Royal Danegelt, London Winner 1898; Champion Saxon, London AVlnner; Lord Melton, London Winner; and a host of other famous winners. Felice, his dam Is a great prize winner. She has won over 200 first prizes, in fact, was seldom beaten. She was purchased by Mr. Norman Raid, of Lancashire, England, for $5,000.

Horse breeders, while paying mucU attention to Qratt Horses, should not overlook the fact that road horses of a good type, with style and action, are very scarce in tills Province, and can scarcely bo found at any price. It will not be long before Roadsters will bring the price Drafters are bringing now. Hackneys have style, action, good bone, lots of stamina and are a general all round horse that will bring the money. The above horse's gets have brought some fancy prices in Una neighborhood.

"On the evening of January 12, the buildings In Kogakhima crumbled up and fell. I saw men crushed to tlie earth as they were fleeing from the houses. "All points to the nortli of Kog- ashima were crowded with despairing refugees as I passed through. Many of tt.eBo people wore so stricken with fear that they resembled clay figures. "Weeping women begrimed with aslies straggled along carrying infants in their arras. Others were dragging with them the sick and aged.
