Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 13, 1910, Lethbridge, Alberta He Letfcbrldge Dally Jttermid, Monday, June The Daily Her aid SUN FIRE _______ December, 1907.

The other day in Cleveland four hundred of the best grocery stores inaugurated the plan of selling all vegetables by weight. This action of the grocers was, due- to the recogni- tion of the public demand by their as- sociation. It is 'not right that people should pay as much for a dozen small eggs or oranges or bananas as for a dozen of a larger size. There is an econo- my in paying for what you get and SERVED HIM RIGHT {Macleod Advertiser) We rather think that there will be no more punching of umpires in the South Alberta League this -season. Justice Harvey's fine of upon the Granum man who committed a brutal and .unprovoked attack upon Umpire Robinson on the 27th, was richly deserved and will teach a lesson to bo remembered. Justice Harvey is a baseball enthusiast and he appreciated the situation at its full value. or local LOCAL" IMPROVEMENT. BYLAWS.- i r -r The clause .in. 'the City charter that gives ihe City Council power to pass bylaws' for borrowing by way of tem- porary loans on the cred't of municipality at large, tir; '.vbri? any, part of the costs of any improvement, is should not be taken advantage .of except under extraordinary circumstances. It is in the charter only to for cases where local aniprovemeucs required in such .haste, due to some exceptional circumstances, that there is- not time to allow the bylaw to be passed -by the ratepayers in the reg-. nlar way. It is not designed to ap- ply to the ordinary local improvement work of the city. It should not be impossible for the city's engineering staff .to ascertain with a considerable degree of accuracy the cost of the work to be done be- fore the vork is completed and it is riot fair to the ratepayers to give them no opportunity; of expressing tlieir approval or disapproval of the expenditure before -'.it. is made. Recently the City .Council 'passed "a bylaw empowering themselves to bor- row temporarily for local, im- provements -upon which- the people have not passed.- There is no evid- ence that "this work is of the extra- ordinary kind that "will not permit of time being taken to submit the bylaw nothinj bearini I living. more that has an important on the present high cost of OUR POINT OF VIEW. Now that the baseball team is away there will be lots of men who will not have such pressing business engage- ments about dinner time. SMALL POTATOES (Macleod Advertiser) .Whatever the expressions used at the council meeting Monday night, the criticism was honestly intended and fairly made. The gentlemen named were elected last year on a platform pledging them to a programme of pub- lic improvement. Their names led the poll, showing the great confidence reposed in their ability and integrity by their constituents. Opinions may properly differ as to the distance a sidewalk should lie from a lot Hue but a resignatioa because that difference of opinion fiuds a'.voice should hot stand.

The Prussian Socialists are hot be- cause the Kaiser got an increase of salary. Their heat is nothing to what would have developed under the Kais- er's collar if he had not got it. The Congregationalists have got so far ahead of the Methodists and Pres- byterians in the Church union race that they have decided to wait for them to catch'up, so that all can reach the finishing post together. Following the lead of Chancellor Day, the rural debating societies will discuss: Resolved, That automobiles are a greater curse than a blessing. Pincher Creek merchants have set a good example in agreeing to ob- serve a half holiday each week.- That 5s something that all towns and cities to the people. The local improve- ments were advertised early in April and the property-holders more im- mediately concerned gave their ap- proval by not petitioning against them But their share of the expenditure is only besides their -share of the that comes out of the City The rest of the ratepayers have no chance of having a voice in the expenditure of this until after it is spent.

It is -contrary to the spirit of the form of government that the city has to spend money in this way.

What sort of municipal tempest has been kicked up that the mayor, aldermen" and city engineer are resigning so hastily?

Side Lights GETTING AROUND A DIFFICULTY A friend of who "was once i county clerk of Des Moines, told! me of an experience he had while hold- ng the office, with a woman who made .iiimerous tails upon him, in company with.a.man1 .who was always in a state of intoxication. The purpose of their visits was to secure a marriage li- cense. As a matter of course, the clerk each time refused the'request. The last time .the woman appeared. usual leading her drunken friend; the clerk, In a most impatient mood, exclaimed: "My dear .woman, why do you always bring this man here to get a license when he is said she naively, "I can never get him to come along when he is MORN ING SIDE The Key to the Growth of Lethbridge PER LOT Down and a Month NO INTEREST NO TAXES The Standard Securities OLIVER BLOCK The Office of the Transfer Co.

TAFT'S STRADDLE OF GAME When Mr. Taft was following college, baseball more closely than he has a chance to now, he set ouc one after- noon for a game between Yale -and Princeton with two tickets in his pocket. He was in the habit of buying two bench seats so that he would have plenty of room. When he got to the grandstand he forked out the two tick- ets. The iisher at a glance what they were for and led the way to the seats. When he reached them t paused. "What's the trouble, young said -Mr. Taft.

The hen is the greatest producer of wealth on the American continent, and yet last year Canada exported on- ly worth of eggs, while five years ago, in 1905, worth were exported. The decrease is due to the fact that the increase in home consumption exceeded the increase in home production. The consequence is "that the price of eggs has gone up very materially. Yet strange to say, there seems to be very few going in for this most profitable branch of mixed farming. In Western Can- dida it Is very seldom that eggs go down'to twenty cents a dozen, while sixty cents is quite a common price. At an average price of thirty or thir- ty-five cents a. dozen, there is -good money In keeping a stock of hens. It every farmer In Western Can- ada would keep enough' hens to eat his cull wheat and clean up his har- vest fields of shelled grain-and grass- hoppers, he would find his average re- turn per acre very much increased.
