A, BUCHANAN saBSCRIPTION: # n Advance - 91.50 a year 0 fterwioe  92.00 a year ADVERTISING. Per Month  $1.00 Per Inch POOR POSTAL FACILITIES. That oven our Dominion.government does not 'realiao the vast growth ot , tho woet, is evidenced very clearly by tho inefficiency of our postal system. The people of this country buyer better than anything clwe he might mention. The government is spending a lot of money on immigration, but seems to forget that the location of a post-office as convenient as possible to the settlers is one of the best mag -nets for the attraction of new citizens. The presence of a poatofllcc near at hand appeals to the land-seeker Just as much as the presence of a railroad with its shlppHg points. A post, office 'is one of the marks of progress and we .

The herder does his best but he fails to prevent the cattle from destroying t'he shade trees on our streets. It is simply an outrage th> way some of the trees 4tave 'l*'en iinii ed. No wonder U>e "-herd" is unpopular with people who are n.libit lous to beautify the streets Hiring them with shad trees keeping the boulevard in neat dit ion. The city should ubolish tho 'herd'' and make each individual owner of a cow responsible for it. Lothbridgc is too big a place to be annoyed wish cattle injuring property. All we ask the owners of catitlo to do. is to consider how they would feel if a cow came along and dontroy ed a tree of several year's growth WouM you not feel Hkc shooting the beast on the snot?

It is nil wry well to criticise fairly, lint venomous attacks don't count for much.

The (Herald arguoJ in favor ot municipal boring but fell all along that the city would be compelled, if gas was found to pur-ehaso the eleotric light property, as the presenco of natural gas here would, to a great cxtont, destroy the value of tho company's business. So the acceptance of the Electric bight Co.'s proposition virtually places tho city In tho Identical position it would have been in had the boring been done by th.> municipal -it.v. Many citizens express a fear that the Company will not make tho strong effort to discover gas thut tho city would havo done, but tne responsibility virtually rests with tho Oity Council, as the boring by th.i company is to be under the ireotloii and supervision of the city. As will bo seen tihe company bores for gas with the city bossing the job. As AM. Jloblnaon pointod out, if tho Elootric Light Co. doetr't And tbat, now.
