Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 9, 1909, Lethbridge, Alberta LfTHBPHDGE, AL0CRTA, WEDNESDAY, JUNE I, 1901. IS Steel Range marked If you purchase a Koptenay without the reservoir and decide later that th.e reservoir is a real necessity, why, just order it and attach it yourself. It's easily done. Merely remove the and take off the plate_____ "REMOVE FOR RESER- VOIR" (see top which provides an opening for the hot air to come through and circulate under the reser- voir. Then attach, by means of screws, the reservoir and the flue box shown in tow- er illustration.

A', the Council meeting Monday night Fire Chief Kro-iiujr presented the following report: I would report to your board since taking 'over the office, of building in- spector and fire chief that thirty-rune stove-pipe chimneys were local -A and parties were notified to build brick chimneys. They were each giv- en fivevdays to comply with City By- law No. 7, Clause 2, re matter of stove-pipe chimneys. Owing to the inclemency of the weather it was not right away but all are built at this writing. There were also seventeen buildings in construction without permits. All have taken permits to build.' I wish to state that I have added four men to the fire department. The wea- ther has been so bad tin? month that f have had them out to drill twice only since taking the department over We have fixed' our hose tower and can hang feet ut hose in there. As I found most, of the hose wet I hung it all in the tower. We have 1200 feet on the hose wagon. We had built on the hose wagon a dividing board s> as to have 600 ft. on each side thus giving us two lines of hose .should we require it. Engineer Will- cocks has been off duty on sick leave since May 8th, returning to duty on May 26th, Fred Mercer taking his place. i I wish to state that we cannot com- j blacksmith shops to comply with the bylaw as to putting in bnek chim- neys as most of them arc steel and called stacks and if we took action we might get into a law-suit as there are several mills in the fire limits that have stacks and it. would apply to them just the same. 1 would also recommend men taking water front hydrants for sprink Hnjr streets should be made to leave them with caps on after using as when they leave them off the brass nipples on hydrants are liable to be jammed and in case of fire you could not get coupling on. 1 think it would be a good idea to have them take water at the atandpipe provided f.-r them on Wood St. We have not taken any action about new horses for fire department as we have no place to train them and have not got in the new fire, hall yet as the main floor in the apparatus room is" not completed the blocks be- come loose when washed down; also You CANT SLEEP. ia wuiy wan and wonura night after night upon a tleeplett tad. Their eyei do not close in the and refreshing repose .that to those wboae heart and nerves right. Some consti- tutional disturbance, worry or disease has so debilitated and irritated the nerrous system, that it cannot be quieted. Or again, you have, a sinking sensation, a feeling you are going to die; or perhaps, you wake in your sleep feeling though yon were about to choke or smother, and rest leaves you for the night. If you allow these conditions to continue for a short period even, you will begin to feel your health declining. It is the nerves and heart not acting rightly, and they can only be set right by the use of Milburn's Heart and Nerve Pills. They soon induce health- ful, refreshing sleep, not by deadening the nerves, bat by restoring them to healthy action. Mrs. E- Kutt, St. Mary's, Ont., I can gladly recommend your MJlburn's Heart and Nerve Pills as I was greatlv troubled with my nerves.

Milburn Co., Limited, Toronto, Oat. the stalls do not carry off the water from the horses and will have ty be completed before putting horses into the stalls. We have also repainted i the engine without much cost. I I would ask the City Council to j turn over charge of the fire hydrants to the Fire Department as in winter we can look after them in case of freez ing and in proper use as they are really fur fire only. I also recom- j mend that when new hose comes that we be allowed to take the old hose reel from the North -Ward and place 500 ft. oi the old hose on it, and locate it at the Taylor Milling Co. as Mr. Taylor hus agreed to place a shed over same that would also be used for the lumber yards around it. I also ask permission to have 200 ft. of old hose at Hyde and Saunders, and nenr hydrant covering Adams' lumber also, the same to be placed on a. reel provided by Hyde and Saunders, also for benefit for residences near by till fire department reaches there. I would also ask the City Council for two. tables, ten chairs, twelve spit- toons for balcony reading room, one typewriter as we' have considerable correspondence, also two desk chairs, letter files for fire department and building inspector's use as at the pre- sent time we have no place to keep our records. I would recommend that the council take action in regard to having floor in apparatus room com- i pleted so that we can get in there as soon as possible. Would you kindly arrange to have three telephones in the fire hall, one in chief's office, also two down in apparatus room for private use and oue for fire only. The fire chief's report was adopted with the exception of the clauses re- lating to furniture and hydrants which were referred to the proper com- mittees. FEAR TO PRODUCE TOO MUCH FRUIT Growers in Niagara Peninsula Look for New Markets East and North; Strawberries, in a Week Beamsville, June tomato crop forms a goodly portion-of the bread and butter of the Niagara fruit section, and as the years pass by the acreage grows larger. Between show- ers last week the growers were able to get in the ground at least a third of the earlier and almost as many of these are to be. sent- next week to canneries. If the weather is fine the coming week, fully three-quar ters of the plants of all varieties should be out in the district between Jordan and Winona.' Buyers are getting ready for the first strawberries next week, but they will not be very low in price until at least the 20th of June. A good warm spell will bring the fruit on rapidly now. Canneries will start in on the rhu- barb at once. The growth of the plant in every section has been lux- urient and plentiful, so that indica- tions point to large quantities being tinned up. The fruit acreage as a whole to be drawn on this season will be at least ten per cent, larger' than two years ago, and about seven per cent, greater than 1908. i Some outlet must be found shortly for it all outside Ontario and Quebec points, so that the Fruit-Growers' As- sociation will bend their energies to some extent towards the western me- tropolis and the rapidly-growing towns of the new provinces. A num- ber of shipments of cherries stood the test well last summer, and more will go out during the coming July. S') far strawberries will not stand the express test farther wesi than the New Ontario towns and eastward to Mon- treal. The association are hopeful oi re- ducing the glut of fruit on the On- tario and Montreal markets at seasons, as they are fully aware of the increasing uneasiness of the. grow -rs that the industry may yet be ovt-r- done in the Niagara Peninsula.

He is being recognized as one of the most prolific spreaders of disease. Sanitary authorities are urg- j ing the accegs germ.laden foea to ing the people to get rid of the fly at food. At its last session the Kansas with the notices sent last week to all New Jersey bakers requiring them to screen all windows so as to prevent the access of flies to their dough, bak- ed or unbaked. In our local bakers' strike serious complaints -were made about unsanitary conditions facilitat- almost any cost, and legislators are giving the subject some attention; not only in our own country, but else- where as well. From Barbados comes the informa- legislature passed a fly-screen law. Columbus (Ohio) has appointed a -ver- itable 'fly whose sole duty is to enforce the laws regarding fly screens.
