Every citizen of Leth-bridi^e owes it to the city that the lair be gruccd by their pres-! ciice. I I'iie .serious illness of llio Duke of Sutherland should arouse ; the syni[)alhy of llic [)eo()le of \^'l\sllrIl ('aiuida. He has taken a deei) and practical interest ill the developiiionl of llic west, and especially Alberta. If Congressman Xelfson of \Msconsin only tells the people when he returns home what lu> told the Herald, that .Mberta has it on \\'isconsin in i)i-odi!cliviMiess and opportiiiiily, he will be lioiiig this country valuable service. For what he has already done, thank you. The Canadian Medical .\ssociatioii seems to be divided iri' opinion as to the best way of handling the women of the under world. The medical men should be sufllcicn^ly informed however to know that it is no jiarl of a community's obligations to countenance a violation of a law, and that is all Hic winiiing at a segregated area anioiiiits to. Another .^I'io.OOO is to be spent in renovating Uidcau Hall at Ottawa, the residence of Canada's (iovcruor-Geiieral. Thei-e has been enougii money spent in renovating the ancient house by successive governments to build one of the Finest castles in the world. Some day the idea will strike the governnieiit that a now house is the best way of patching Hideau Hall. VISIT THE EXHIBITION Mil-: SYMPATHY of the public will go out in generous meas-iii-c lu tlie xhibition directors whose efforts lo make the o.\-hriMtion a fniancial success are being frustrated by the rain. [ There is no disposition to grumble at the rain, as the loss to the, rxhihiticm will he offset ten thousand fold in an abundant bar-' �>vsl. Htjwcver. the Herald urges upon the citizens of Lethbrid^o that it is H patriotic duly to visit the fair, if at all possible. Should the woalher clear every one wlio po.ssibly can. should show by llieir attendance on-Friday, "in-actionl appreciation of the btjst u exhibition ever put on here. The directors give of their liiifio i without recompense fr(3m. a jsensc of public duty and the leijstj' tliat can be looked for is'pulilic apprecirttioa.* | THE SAME TALE IN THESE D.VYS of financial stringency it affords some sort of a consolation to note that money is what is spoken of as tight pretty wo)! all ll)o world over. Travellers who return lo our shores all tell the same tale, and the latest is Sir Wilham Whyte, lately come back from England. "Money is quite as tight in England as elsewhere and it will remain so until the Balkan trouble is thoroughly cleared up. It is hard to say what will happen in the Near East, but if the Grcil Powers remain in accoi-d they can possibly bring sutlicicnt pressure to bear to ensure amicable relations," said Sir Wilham. "Trade conditions are very good," he added, "and conditions in general, despite some financial stringency, arc prosperous." Sir William said that as far as Canada was concerned there �\vas a definite sentiment in England that some' of the cities had heen borrowing somewhat too fast. and.jthabjjpc a stime#t, least-the flow of Enghsh capita! -would be^less rapid--He considered that the action of the Liberal party in the matter-of the navy bill Mould not have, as some Ihoughtj very much influence on the British investing public. "It will doubtless influence some," he said, "but the great financial houses will not be affected. After all, there is no use cutting off" one's nose to spite one's face." Consolation after ail is a poor relief, but there is this much satisfaction lo be gleaned from Sir Wilham Whyte's report. That is that conditions iiere have not been made unfavorable to the investing of capital from abroad. The absence of such investments is due to a peculiarly economic reason. The fact that there is a sentiment in England that some of Ihe cities here had been borrowing too fast is becoming quite a stale story. In this matter it may be said that as yet no city has repudiated, nor failed to meet its liabihties. L'ntil such a case occurs there will not be too much suspicion aroused amongst British investors in the matter of placing capital here, and the one which is taken for granted as existing now is not of such great proportions as to affect investments until times are easier. Of course any allusion to the treatment the Navy Bill lias received, in affecting the British money market in regard to this countiw, is so much twaddle. Not only is ,Iohn Bull not accustomed to be guided by sentiment, as experience shows, whej'o his pocket is concerned, but it requires to be shown whetlier liis feelings have been particularly hurt. A \\'innipeg lawyer has been deputized to iinesligaife how mucii of Ihe natural I'osources \\ere leased or sold ii>' the Laurier governnu-nt. Tiiere isn't the shghtest .iustification for the appointment other than providing a berth for a part}- foHo�'or. The information he will get has to be "dug", i'rom the depart-mcntitl records, and the civil service at Ottawa is ((uite crowded with men and wonien who are not worked to the excessive point. It is merely another of the "conmiissions" handed out by the present government to camp f(jlk)wers, and'-vVill cost the people of Canada a pretty penny. There is no objection to the infoi^ mation desired being secuiTcl, CANADA SOLVES PROBLEM 0 GETTING:CASH FROM JIM HILL^ The Spokosmun Revieir of Spokane ).s responsible I'or the following: Spokane lias a small but energetic class of citi'/.eiis who are rapidly approaching the point where they will inexorably demanci the annexation of Canada and maybe go to w-ar to enforce it. They can't rest easily rior work smoothly while the Dominion is wandering about up there in the cold. There's a reason .for it. These annexationists are Great Northern train dispatchers. This may not be a certain indication that .Jim Hill is buck of the movement. He is a born Canuck, for one thing, and has already annex'efl part of the United States for another. .\otwithbtandins,_ Caiiaaa is iSow 'making hfra-pay tariffi' on Great Northern cars that happen acrpss the ^boumdary and; do .busiuesa there., and _tlifi iact .of this payment might possibly be regarded as signifl. cant "when the matter becomes an in? ternatlonal is.sue. People who haVe contrived methods for getting money out of .rim had reason sooner-ffr later to suspect him of aniie.\aiioii instincts it is said. Possibly this view of the else has something to do with what troubles Great Northei-'Rji dispatchers at this and other point^s^rom w-hich branch ; lines run up across the northern border. Dispatcher* B-re the men wlio move railroad traffic and send cars here and th^re ort their divisions a� business demands. Canucks Have Tariff Trap From Spokane they send car.s into Canada on Great .Northern trackage there. The Canadians take note of all such cars. Having done so they wait patiently, as Canadians v,'\U, unUl freight or paKaen|er8 .are put on such cats at one CanjiSJan point and son-signed to another Canadian point. .Then, they take juriE.d.ictlon of the car or cars, as the case may be, and assess a ."0 per cent', daty'on valuation of the car or cars. 'The valuation runs from $700 to $000 on freight cars and twice as mucii at.-ieast on passehger coaches. When rso per cent, of that Jogging Laziness into Activity The mercliant wliose buamess lags in the summery has himself to thauk. To slacken the selling pace in the hot season-to � lessen Advertising activity-indicates a resignatioa which has no place in modern business. If we think we cannot keep our business booming ia summer time, we surely will not. What a jolt it must have been to the fur traifle, when the first mid-summer fur advertisement was run in a daily paper 1 Now many fur stores are following the example of that progressive fur man who dared to believe that fur sales need not go down as the mercury goes up. Energy, linked with Advertising, hag turned the month of January into the biggest selling season for �\vhite goods. Advertisements of a high stimulative-power, combined with a disregard of "seasons," have opened up automobile selling two months earlier than was once thought possible. Advertising has started Christmas shopping early in October instead of the middle of December. Advertising rises superior to seasons and thermometers. The right kind of Advertising strikes a responsive cord in human nature-and human nature is the same in August as in December.

COINS FOUND IN FRONT STREET EXCAVATION -At Toronto, These are some century ago pieces of money struck to I commemorate victories of Brock and Wellington. LET US MAKE THE BEST OF IT THE PRESENT weather conditions are such as to make most of us inclined to grumble. The rain has come down at an inopportune time in lhat il has marred the success of the Exhibition. The leafy month of .June is in this western country somewhat ptctiliiu- in the matter of rain, for if a downpour is to come it generally occurs then. ^ In changing the date of the Exhibition the authorities were \%'eU-advised in doing so, as it made it convenient for the attendance of the farmers in the surrounding district. It must, tliere-I'ore, be very mortifying to have the rain come down as it has �t present, and so help to stultify in a measure the good inten-itions which caused the change in dale. However the vagaries of nature are beyond human control. (The disappointment, for there is no gainsaying lhat it is such, ought to serve the good purpose of teacliing us to mentally fortify purselves against such occurrences. It should help us to put on ^ brave and smiling face and accept things as they come. If this view is taken there will be some good done al any rale in creating a commendable feature in human character. �' However, when the harvest is ready for r(?aping we shall )iave forgotten our grievance of loday, and when the benetils to is figured off it' naturally attracts at-! tention in the operating expense department of the railroad that gets the i bill, I Of course tiie ctimpany 'doesn't  hav(� to pay this duty. Canadians are easily appeaseiJ in' that' partictilar, I They would just as soon keep the cars iFeeting that vvay'about It, they don't take aijy chances on being dts-i appointed in case the duty Is not 1 forthcoming. The'y simply take " the car and that simplefies matterH for the company. It can pay the several liundred dollars duty or not, just as it pleases. Peculiar as it may seem, the company has concluded to pay duty on such cars as it happens to need for local business jn Canadian territory, and here is where the dispatchers bo-come direct parties in Interest. It is their function to designate what cars are sent into Canadian territory. As long as they deal conservatively only in cars upon which duty has been paid they meet no more than the usual countless vexations that a train dis-{ptcher couldn't be happy without, i When they happen to let a car that ! lacks duty paid credentials get across 1 the line and go to doing business I there they experience some deliriously i joyful consetiuences. Dispatcher Hears Something Happen The Canadians have never yet failed to notice such oversights. Neither have the railroad officials at railroad headquarters who have to account to directors for the offence of paying out cash. By one means or another the dispatcher involved presently gets rumors of what has happened, such rumors as a dynamite explosion puts into circulation. The Canadian customs department meanwhile gets the money, calmly leaving all other details to be adjusted between the dispatcher and tlie company. In conseriuence; train~ dispatchers here and at other boundary connection points now put in both leisure apd working time-there's no particular difference-instudying lists of car numbers upon which duty has been paid. The Canadians do not In-eiat upon such attention, but the company does. In this section of the couptry the Great Northern is the road, chiefly concerned with the new rule, but on the Sound the Northern Pacific has the same problem where Its branch line runs into Vancouver. A passenger or pound of frcjight picked up at one station across the' line on an American road and dropped olT at another Canadian point a mile or two further on calls for Ms 30 per cent, duty on ythe car, If the duty has not already hwn paid on that oar, 'ftiere will be a serious minded Canuck around to see about it immediately. , It Wp!:l
