MACBETH AGENCY FIRE INtURANCE HEAL ESTATI .LITHiRiDOi "An OH Iftakltohtd Firm of LETHBRIDGE GETS BEST OF IT IN A TORONTO NEWSPAPER Saturday Night Slashes Other Places but is Good to This City (Toronto Saturday Night) The city has a population now. of 'some and its little taste or adversity, 'has done It a world of good. If the place had boomed as have many others we know of, Leth- bridge inside business realty would probably now he quoted ;it from to ?KiOO per'front foot. .AS it is, I understand or possibly per front foot is the highest price yet paid. -The Eastern Townships Bank considered a site on Fourth Avenue p-nd Fifth street, across .from The Alexandra Hotel, worth this figure, and paid it. the-price looks, and is, fairly reasonable. Any business man who comes to Lethbridge to locate will find an en- couraging growth in bank clearings, in customs returns, and in post office can buy a lot to build on for from 'to or hbe an asset worth a million dollars or more to he city. It would be hard to over-estimate-the importance of this area set down in the very heart of the business centre. Lethbridge owns; its .water system, its electric light.-plant, operated, by shark's-teetir coulees leading down to the Belly itiver.' The course of ttie river adjacent- to Lethbridge is from the north to wards southeast, and just outside the southerly limits of Leth- bridge these coulees with their hog- back acc-aseories-cut into the scenery for a mile or more. Only a daring sub-divider, with the imagina- tion of a T. C. Ansell, would dare sub- divide into'one'of .these broken sec- tions. Lethbridge, oV course, has Us sub? divisions.

If the own- era of subdivisions' would club togeth- j er and bujld a street car extension to serve their .'different holdings, the sit uation would be materially altered. At present; ancLtaking into consideration that Lethbridge growth, while healthj has been bf recent years a trifle slo'w it .becomes apparent that building lots contiguous coming street "car lines, well .within'the city limits'and right in the area of development, are more reasonable..purchases than any 'of ,the subdivision temptations. y.- A from the liiinil of house Beyond .that again, from Seventh-, avenue South to about Eleventh avenue South, is a' flat grassy, area is available about a at from to each.

The city is laying down a ten-mile system of street car track to cost and as far as I can see Lethbridge hasn't a thing to apologize for. Nature and the C.P.R. have reduced the subdivision evil to a minimum in Lethbridge. The nineteen members of the Board of Trade are sound b'us.T ness men. At-present the Board of Trade is not a thin a par- cel of gentlemen who are boosting to secure manufacturers for the city, to the end that they may unload inflated real estate on said manufacturers!

LONDON CLUBS i LOSING MONEY MEMBERSHIP LISTS DECREASE RECEIPTS FROM BAR AND DINING ROOMS FALL OFF London, July the last few weeks the committees of several London clubs have been trying to make the best of unpleasant balance sheets.
