This has been dem- onstrated a good many times during the last few years but never more clearly than on Monday when the Winnipeggers were here. It has been no uncommon thing to have men vi- sit the city for the first time and invest thousands of dollars here be- fore leaving. Without exception the visitors on Monday expressed sur- prise at what they saw and altered their opinions of Lethbridge. Their preconceived ideas of a little mining town dropped in the middle of a great barren ranching country, have been The manner in which the reply was j given 'revealed thqf Premier's -atti- yow, however, comes the difficulty; itude toxvard the phenomenal growth Taylor County has run out of Pres- j of the west generally.

The Irish did well when the These hard-deaded business men who have seen their own city grow from a small beginning recognized in Leth- bridge a city of great possibilities and have passed their judgment accord- ingly. One wholesaler practically stated that .their Alberta branch would be here as a result of his visit. Oth ers gave their word that when the were going to establish branches in Alberta, Lethbridge would receiv the consideration not previously gi ven. It would be a wise move for the Board of Trade to endeavor to business men from other great cities to visit Lethbridge to see for them selves the advantages of establishin, their businesses here. Lethbridge has advantages as a manufacturing and wholesadle centre unexcelled the West. Men with money to in- vest in industrial enterprises or who are intending to establish -branches o: their businesses should be brought here even though it does cost a good deal of money to do so.

The sprinkler very seldom gets out on the street until the powers in charge get jacked up by the Herald or some citizens who strenuously object to carrying town lots around in their eyes and ears. The driver should have standing orders to get the sprinkler out as soon as the streets get dusty and he should be intelli- gent enough to know when the streets are dusty and not hare to be told about it.
