Such a provision as lhal is useless as no official is in a position to keep tab on nil the births in a community daring a yiar. It is extremely difficult lo gel the foreigner lo realize the need of registering, and conscquently Ilierc arc many birlhs which are never accounted for in the public records. In the case of deaths a burial certificate cannot be obtained without iirsl registering, and the obligation to register n mar- wliich prevails in this young country uf inex- haustible resources, and lo the spirit of the busi- ness men which does not become daunted be- cause happened to be passing through a year of exceptional dullness. There isn't the slightest rcastm for doubt as to the future of these towns. Tiiey have Ihe goods iind t'iin ilelivt'-r them on demand. Situated as they are the towns only await the natural de- velopment which comes wrih population, and the coming west of industrial enterprise. Letiiiiricigt: will have a bright future and become a line city. No one doubts Ihat, and there is also no doubt bul thai Macleod and oilier towns will also thrive as Ihe years roll round. It is simply a case of! keeping the goods well displayed in the front win- dow, and Ihe town of Macleod for its size has e rests on the clergyman performing the cere- done nobly in the publicity line. 11 is a good pol- icy and one of Ihc worst mistakes the town coun- cil could make would be lo cut off the granl for Ihe Board of Trade. The board is doing a great work in keeping the claims of Ihc town before the world and publicity counts in town building just as much as it does in business building. All cred- it to business men who have foresight and faith. Men without a vision have nu place in Western Canada. nage mony. No one is really obligated to report a birlli and yet in many respects it is much more important that-births be registered than mar- riages or deaths. In the case of litigation in -after life it is very comforting to be able to produce a certificate of birlh, especially as the of legitimacy is so often raised by unscrupulous litigants. The rule in Ontario is to make the at- tending physician equally responsible, and a pen- ally of twenty dollars is provided for neglect. If some such penalty were provided for in Alberta and a few stiff applications made of it to delin- quents it would probably result in a more com- plete registration of birlhs. The government could with profit to the province consider Ihe ad- visability of amending Ihe law dealing.with the collection of vital statistics. OUli POINT OF VIEW SITUATION IN LETHBRIDGE. A North Lethbridge reader writes chiding Ihe Herald for saying there were no unemploy- ed in this city. Our friend is mistaken. He must have read his paper up side down. The Herald did not say that there were no um-mpioyvu in Lethbridge. What we did say was that there were not hundreds walking the streets looking for work as in other cities. The Herald said that there were the usual number oul of employment due to Ihe season of the year, which is to be ex- pected, and is unavoidable no matter how brighl the times might be. We are not trying fo pain Letlibridge by applying the rose brush loo thick ly, but -we think that any man who knows any thing about the.'industrial conditions in oilier cif its will agree that Lelhbridge is particularly for tunate in that during the past two years of quid ness in this city Ihe army of transients liavi gone out, and the big majority of our own pcopli have been employed. We have refrained from'giving this city it just (Juc and have stood for a.lot of from outside sources just because we did not wisl to altracl Ihe unemployed here, and we can as sure our crilic that when il comes lo standing fo Lelhbridgc, the Herald is on Ihc job all the tiiiii and with the best of them.

Because the odor of the monkey-house in a Chicago zoo resembles that of llic imizzle-loud- ng street cars in Ihc Windy City, supporters of Ihe Darwinian theory have come forth in an "1 [old you so" attitude. Wonder if Darwin's "De- scent of Man" mentioned the similitude of odors. and Mnrlood is a line Iribulc lo Ihc hopefulness A case just heard in Calgary will have a large bearing on real estate Iransaclions, it being es- tablished Ihat equity in land cannot be destroyed through inability to meet payments. II has been customary lo Irjdge every agreement of sale with restrictions but it appears as if these iigrccincnls arc not in accordance with good law, and con- scqucnlly when :i man pays in money on a pro- perly he is entitled to lhal much equity no mailer dial tlic vendor may say lo ihc only exception being of course a slump in values which would make it impossible lo sell the pro- perly for the equity claimed, ;i most unlikely oc- currence.
