Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - January 22, 1913, Lethbridge, Alberta Wednesday, January 22, 1913. THE LETIIBRIDOE DAILY HERALD Are You Drinking Pure Cocoa or Cocoa Mixed with Starch? Cocoa is made by grinding cocoa beans and pressing out some of their fat or "cocoa butter". The removal of the excess fat leaves the cocoa, more perfectly digestible. A common way to cheapen cocoa is by adding starch. A leading English physician says that starch added to cocoa reduces the "nutritious gluten and stimulating theobromine." Lowney's contains no starch. It is as pure as cocoa can be made. It is produced in our spic-and-span factory at Montreal. Lowney's Cocoa conforms with every requirement that goes to make cocoa wholesome and appetizing. You will never learn how delicious cocoa can be until you have tasted Lowney's. \ Sold by grocers.

Terms: Cash (Special to The Herald) Edmonton, Alta., Jan. 20.-During the twelve months, ending December 30, last, 1034 miles of new railroad was built and put in operation ih Alberta, according to official figures given out by Premier Sifton, who stated that on December 30 there were 3020 miles of railroad in Alberta. These figures show a remarkable increase over those of the past few years. In 1010 there were only 1668 miles of railroad in Alberta; in 1911 these had been increased to 198G, and at the end of 1912 to 3020. The standing of the three roads in the province on December 30 last was as follows: Canadian Pacific....... 1470 miles Canadian Northern .. . . 912 , Grand Trunk Pacific ____ 638 Alberta has set a new /record in railroad building, said Premier Sifton, and the end is not yet in sight. Remarkable railroad activity can be looked for in 1P13, and hi a few years Alberta will be one of the best served provinces in the Dominion, as far as railroads are concerned. '> "Our policy," said the Premier, is to net work the province with railroads, and to give every farmer a chance to market his produce while at the same time every section of Alberta is being developed and populated." It is also expected that during the coming session of the legislature a big immigration policy will be announced by the Premier, in addition to further legislation.  Calgary, Jan. 20.-Acting in accordance with the wish or the City Council, City Clerk Miller has written a good many municipalities asking for Information on the matter of assessments, what taxes are existent in those cities, and what measures are taken for the securing of those taxes. Sufficient time has not elapsed to allow of all the answers to havebeen received, but the following ono from Edmonton, proved of interest to the legislative committee when read to it on Saturday afternoon. "Our method," wrote the City Clerk, "has from time to time been amended, until now we have a straight single tax system in force. The only other method of assessment in force 5s the assessment of special franchises, but of these we have none, as all the utilities are owned by the municipality. The income tax, business tax, and poll tax have all been abolished. Land Assessment "The method of assessing land, as set out in the charter is as follows: Land shall be assessed at its fair actual value. In estimating its value regard may be had to its situation, and the purpose for which it is used; or, if sold by the present owner, it could and 'would probably be used in the next succeeding twelve months. In ease the value at which any specified land has been assessed appears to be more or less than its true value, the amount assessed shall nevertheless not be varied on appeal unless the diiference be gross if the value at which it is assessed bears a fair and just proportion to. the value at wbich lands in the immediate vicinity of the lands in question are assessed.'' Properties Exempt "The following properties are exempt from taxation: Crown property and property specially exempted by Parliament; churches and lands used in connection therewith, not, exceeding one acre and' burying grounds; the buildings and grounds, not exceeding four acres of every university college, public school, high school, separate school, etc.. all these being-exempt from general taxation, but which are liable for" local improvement assessment. "Our system of assessments meets with very general approval in the city. -The income assessment was abolished by the legislature without, appeal from the city, and the business assessment is now optional; by law of the council a bylaw abolishing the business assessment last year was put in force, and is likely to remain permanent. We have had the advantage of having begun practically on the single tax basis, and it has not been any hardship to drop off the other methods, and retain only the laud values taxation."
