Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - March 3, 1909, Lethbridge, Alberta LITHiftlDQE, ALTA., WEDNESDAY, MARCH 3, If Miles Of Wood and Cement Walks for Engineer Arnold has uu elaborate program of sidewalk construction this year. Hig report dealing with the matter of cement walks., widening .cement walks, new plank walks, aud relaying old plank walks, was laid before the Council last night. The folkwiug is the report in fall: To the Mayor and Council of the City of Lethbridge: submit herewith a report, with estimate of cost and plan, of proposed cement and plank walks, which I would recomniend for construction. With new 6 foot resi- dential walks, no curb and gutter, is estimated as plank curbs are vided. for in local improvement No. 8, and work partly done. The cement walk proposed Smith Street, from Courtland to Lon- don, and for Courtland-Round to Smith, would preferrably be located on Koun_d-Courtland to London and London from Round to Smith, if the Council secures the right of way for producing Round St. through the southern portion of Lot A. The estimate includes widening walks on certain blocks marked A on Baroness Road and Ford St. to a width of 4 feet greater, which I would recommend as being advisa- ble, and it also includes the wideru- ins: of walks on certain blocks mark- ed" B, on Round, KedpaTh, and Ford Streets, to 6 aud 10: feet greater width, which was ordered by last year's Council, but was not included in. local .improvement No. 7. In my judgment ,the work outlin- ed would provide sidewalks where .much needed. All new work except north of the track would be cement, and the plank released could be re- laid as shown in statement and es- timate. Yours truly, C. M. ARNOLD, City Engineer. New Cement Walks.

"I own shares in the railroad. They're worth you take "My dear." he said, leaning quite close to her. "1 am not seeking to blackmail you as you seem to imagine. I have only tried to tell you that 1 love youi" she exclaimed, with a shudder of disgust His face was quite close to hers. She could feel his warm breath on her cheek, and she drew away quickly. His hand hovered close to hers as it lay in her lap. There was an eyewitness to this sin- gle picture in the brief scene. Jane had started do-vviistairs. From tbe upper steps she could look into the drawing room below. She could not help seeing Bansetoer's fervent atti- tude. She beard nothing that he said. The girl paused in surprise. A feeling as of could not crept over her. A chill struck into her heart It was as if she had awakened from a sweet sleep to look out upon a bleak, horrid morning..- she shrank back, quite beyond the actual vision, but not free from it She stood straight and tense and-silent, at the. top of the stairs, tier hand clasping the rail. She could hear her heart throbs plainly. There was no .mistaking-the .picture as it-bad brfrst upon- her unsuspecting eyes. A great dark welled up in her heart. .It was not uctil the butler admitted ether callers that she found the cour- age to turn her eyes toward the draw- ing room; Although she succeeded in hiding the fact it ;was difficult to ap- proach iand greet James Bansemer with the naturalness; of the unsuspecting, liis manner was beyond reproach, and yet for the :first time she saw the real "light in- his black eyes.

Closing the door of bis smoking room behind him. David Cable dropped wearily into a chair without removing bis Lat or coat His blood was run- ning cold through his veins, bis jaw was set and his eyes had the appear- ance of one who bus been dazed by a blow. For many minutes he sat and stared at tbe andirons In the ember lit grate. From time to time be swal- lowed painfully and his jaw twitched. Things began growiogr black and green before his eyes. He started up, with an oath. He was consumed by the fires of jealousy and suspicion. The doubt that had found lodging in his mind so re- cently now became a cmel certainty. Into his grim heart sprung the rage of tbe man who fiuds biniself deceived, despised, dishonored. He was seeing with bis own eyes, no doubt, just what others had seen for and had pitied or scorned him as the unfortunate dupe. With the thought of it be actually ground his teeth; tears of rage and mortification sprang to his eyes. He recalled bis own feelings in instances where shame bad fallen upon otber men; be recalled his own easy indifference and ...the'., temptation to laugh at the plight of the poor devils. It hau never entered his mind that some day he might be the object of like consideration in others more or less fortunate, according to tiieir friends.
