The Lethbridge Herald, by the Krst of March, will be the best equipi^ed weekly newspaper in A berta. F. E. Simpson was here last Saturday on liis way to Winnipeg, to piirchase an outfit that will establish to the ixiople of Lethbridge that we have heaps of confidence in the town and faith in the willingness of the business men ant^ v; ction," continued Mr. Rogers, "to my miral is much better thati any jmrt of California, and is fully eciufil, if not better, than Denver, Colorado I have much exp'rience in the matter and believe if the consumptives of Canada could be sent there in tlie early stages of the disease, fully VK) per cent of pitients suffering from it would recover. I greatly regret that the government of the various provinces are building sanitariums for consumptives in their provinces. This I fear is due to the narrow feeling ot provincial governments, who, in awarding their grants, make conditions that Ihe money must be spent witliin t4ie jurisdiction of their own territories. When a man lias lung troubft, he requires the best conditions possible. These can be obtained in Alberta. We have there high altitude with dry mild climate and an abundance of sunshine, all of which are conducive to health for the patient with pulmonary diseases. The Dominion government should set aside a township of land, and the governments of the provinces should each build a sauitorium and support it, BO that thousands of Canadians might be saved every year." Mr. McCrea, Transferred, to be Succeeded by Mr. Moe,or Macleod. Lethbridge is about to lose a popular citizen and a capable C, P. R. official, by the removal of G. L. McCrea, C. P. R. agent. Mr. Mc-Crea's health has been poor for some time, and he was compelled to ask to be transferred from here. Under the conditions the company consented, Mr. J. Aloe, agent at Macleotl for several years, will become agent here. The changes go into cft'ect at the end of the month.
