Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - July 18, 1907, Lethbridge, Alberta Mtttttufmris+m Sunshine ^ Furnace NO BEND INQDOUBLE AND t'OKt>?G AROUND THE ASH-tHT WITH A � SHOVEL TO GET TIIR ASHES OUT OF THE SUNSHINE. The Sunshine is furnished with a good, big ash-pan. All you have to do is to grasp two strong, firmly attached, always-cool, bale handles and the targe, roomy ash-pan easily comes out. A minute or two is all it takes to perform the operation. All the ashes are in the pan, too. Because they are guided into it by means of ash-chutes attached immediately below the fire-pot, Sunshine is the simplest, easiest-managed, cleanest kind of a furnace. You don't have to wear overalls and a smock when attending to the Sunshine. If your local dealer does1 not handle the "Sunshine" write direct to us for Free Booklet.

Everything looked rosy towards disposing of oust of this outside stuff until tlwj money market tightened up. Since that t'lme real estate has tienn the deadest line of business in the west. A.

The government Is lessening the ex-liens** if litigation in another re  s|�H*t. Another amendment provides (hat when a |>erson in one Judicial district wants to enter nn action against a person in another JudleUi district he can issue his writ in his Judicial district and the clerk can send It to die sheriff in tlie other district to be served upon the de fendnnt. This prevents a big bill of costs being piled up by the lawyers, t'nder the old system lawyers, for instance in Calgary, sent the writ to lawyers in Wetaskiwin and hod them Issue it in the latter Judicial district end as n result lawyers fees had to lie paid nt both points. Now this procedure can be conducted by the clerks of the courts nod the sher ItTs without the extra expense of the litigants. Clerks of tin* Court, It itwiy also lie pointed out, are paid n stated salary and not by fees as was formerly the case. Another amendment that when the Legislature In prorogued to meet in 'the past for it was the custom to prorogue the legislature from tlnw to time in the columns of the Al  l.erta Onrette. Now whvm a date is announced wo will know it is the cor ivet time. The next amendment provides that member*) will have ten dollars a day deducted from their indemnity for every dny ov�r Ave days they are absent from the Legislature or the committees of the House. This does not apply in cases of Illness-when a member is absent from at least one half the sittings he will only draw ten dollars a day fcr the days he has attended. In the present "Companies Ordin  once" of the Province, a company, supposed to lie doing an elevator business, can, hy filling a memorandum of association with the ttegis  trar of Joint Stock Companies, lie incorporated with power to do anything which it is within tlie competence of the Legislature to |iermit an individual to do. Now there is ulso a provincial statute which only allows a telephone company to carrion business uiKk'r ivgulntions nml conditions imposed by the Minister of Public Works, nnd yet tho Itegls -trar of. Joint Stock. Companies had no option under the Companies Or-An nnvuduvnt to the Hills of Sale Ordinance makes provision that a bylaw or resolution of a company authorizing tho issue of debenture as security for a mortgage, or a certified copy of it slmll tie deposited nlong with a copy of tho mortgage with the Registrar of Joint Stock Companies. When this is done it will not be necessary, as at present for tlie same to bo renewed every year by the triisteo filing a renewal statement. Then there is an amendment |>erinit ting tlie government to extend the time for agricultural societies to file their returns. Under the former act, socio! ies might lose their grant even though they had good reasons, Tor failing to make their returns. Tho amendment overcomes that condition and the government can extend the Uinta when circumstances warrant. y Hereafter the first election in u newly Incorporated town will lie held within a moolh after the re -turning omcer has boon nppointed and not on tho first Monday in l>s-cennber as in the past.
