It hardly sounds like the astute Mr. Foster. We can liardly credit Ihe reply lo that gentleman. But il seems he said il nevertheless. 11 doesn't convey much hope to the westeni farmei much more than a woman's characteristic "because." Bui because our forefathers garnered their fields with, the scythe and the. cradle (wlu'le their pioneer wives bundled Ihc hand rake) is hardly an excuse for the progressive farmer of today lo do the same thing. Because our forefathers packed wheat on their backs lo the mill ten miles away, and packed the flour back on the same conveyance, is no reason why the farmer of today may not come to the cily in an automobile if he can afford it. And because the farmer of -10 years ago straggled along with a restricled market for his produce is hardly u sane reason why the farmer of today should follow suit if there is a widei and better market within his reach. Our toiling forefathers who helped clear the bush from She fertile acres of Rhslern Canada are -worthy all honor. But because they did so is no reason the western farmer of today shoulc go through a> similar experience.

BEFORE deciding lo add len per cenl. to Ihc assessment of even- piece of real cMtile within the cily h'mils, we would advise the commissioners to call into consultation the appraisers of half a dozen loan companies lending money in Lethbridge. If they will give assurance thai the valuation they would now place upon real estate in. Lethbridge is. ten per cent, Horses For Side Horses Wanted HORSES MJKN who have horses for sale, or who want to buy or trade for good horses should see Messrs. Welsh and Connor at the Feed and Sale Stables in this city. These gentlemen have brought into Lethbridge, for sale, some of the very best horses ever brought into the province. They have Clydesdale, Hackney and Standard Bred Imported Stallions and other register- ed and Grade horses from The Owners do not want to take these horses elsewhere-they were brought here for sale. Fanners or Ranchers who want to Buy, Sell or Exchange Horses in any quantity should see Mr. Welsh at the stables on Third Street South, or at the Alexandra Hotel. Responsible parties given time. WELSH CONNOR than'it Was .one year ago, the commissioners, we believe, would be quite within the mark in com firming the ten per cent, general increase. !t would be interesting, at any rate, lo gather their opinions. They would be a pretty safe guide. really, we have (he greater enlightenment of to- day that causes the farmers to demand what their' pioneering fathers or grandfathers never, ircamed of. Hon. Mr. Foster should iook again. H THE LIBRARY SITE. AV1NG practically decided to build a library Ihis year, which we know to be in accord- ance with the wishes of the great majority of the voters, as evidenced by the referendum taken at the municipal elections two or three years ago, the vexed question now is the fixing of the sile. The question of the cost of the building should not enter into; the discussion any further. We cannot well afford to use city money for the pur- so there -is.only available. As to that it is enough. -Twenty-five hundred dollars maintenance a .year is quite as much as we will he able to undertake for a years anyway. But as to the site, there is apparently a wide difference of opinion, induced, no douhl, by scc- tio'nal opinion within the.cily. This should not stand in the way, however. Let Ihfc. commissioners decide wiihviii utlav on the available sites wliich are already owned by the cily, andimake the final choice. Thai is what they are office' for. If, however, (hey do nol care-to-Joke the onus on themselves, they have Ihiireferendam to fall back upon, and the people may then decide for themselves. The matter cannot he delayed much longer. It is the first of April. If it goes pasl that dale without action we will probably he fooled out library.for another year. We remember quite distinctly Hint three years ago about this time we were talking about a library and hoping it would he built that summer! And we have been talking iibout it ever since. Truly lalk is cheap. Let us have sonic action for a change.
