RETAILERS. uch offered itself, we should have be^n obliged to refuse it. Lack of Support To Illustrate the lack of support that has so far been given the board' in their efforts to revive a successful exhibition in Lethbrldge, 1 may say tl\al otit of apprcTimatel.v fift.v pages of advertising carried In our Prize List, tho retail merchants proper. Uiat is. those who might feel the competition of the mail order bouse, were responsible for 9'i pages. Of these, one, whom t presume is a member of your association, is not in a position to criticize our action in accepting the objectionable advertisement, as in liis advertisement appearing on page ."iS. he states in boh! type. "We meet catalogue prices." thus giving as great publicity to the existence of the mail order house tree of charge as was paid for oTi page L'O, So far as I am, aware, the retail merchants were thoroughly canvassed for advertising, but for every one who responded wiili an advertisement, there were three or tour who did not cofisider that it would be of any benefit to them, and evidently did not consider it necessary to assist the undertaking to the extent of a small advertisement in the prize list, I might further remind you that the Prize List is not altogether intended for distribution in the City of Lethbrldge and the territory tributary thereto, but will reach homes which probably have few other facilities for trading than the mail order house provides, Othars to some considerable number will go to other' parts of tho province as well as to this other Western Provinces, and while a considerable number will be circulated in Letu Saskatoon.

Refused to Takt Sfjace Further in regard to the support that we have so far received from local merchants, I might say that some sixty or seventy circular letters have been sent out from this office to the merchants and others of the cit.v, requesting them, if they are considering the making of an exhibit at the Exhibition, to inform me of the amount of space that they will require tor this purpose. This circular mentioned the tact that a nominal charge would be made for the space, which is necessary in order that it may help to defray the cost ot lighting, cleaning and policing tho building. The response to, this letter has so far been very disappointing, in fact only one eoiicern has engaged .space as a result of this letter, while two others called on the telephone and when told that a charge ot approximately $10 would be made for the use of a twenty foot .space for one week, stated that unless the space were given free as was the practice in previous years, they could not promise to i-xhibit. With reference lo the charges for fixed space, I may say that nowhere in "Western Canada is such space given free, unless it "may be at a country fair, but this charge la al-wa.v's made at all the big fairs in the west, and nowliere else have I heard the complaint that the amount is excessive. ^ I raisjit furtlier state that at the Calgary and Edmonton Exhibitions tho mail orde;- houses are among the largest exhibitors and am permitted to take orders freely on the grounds. 1 do not anticipate that, the same privileges will bo extended at the Leth-bridge exhibition, but should it be decided to do so, it will be from the necessity of tilling tho space in the building which tho local merchants refused to consider, as It is out of the question that the facilities which we have at tho Exhibition Grounds for such exhibits should not be utillxed tor tho purpose for whlcii they aro intended. I am mentioniig these mattors to fihow that the parallel you have drawn between tho "Lolhbridgo Herald" and the Exhibition Board has no bearing on the subject under discuHslon, for whereas the "Horahl" is used extensively us an advertising medium by tho majority of the retail merchants of the city, wo have so far been unable lo interest any conslderablp portion of yoitr memborahip to support the exhibition as is their duty to do'. In conclnsfion, I wish to quote a clause from the contract entered into -with tho caterer for the grand stand during tho exhibition, which, I bellovo should demonstrate the fact that the management of the Lethbrldge Board has no desire to alienate any of" tho business! which properly belongs to the Itjcal merchants, "n'hls clause Is as follows: �'Tho party ot the second part agrees/ to purchase tho supplies for his busi-iicBB where possible to do so in the city ot Lethbrldge, and wUerfc the goods required are manutacttirea in HowGan You Explain A Com? A corn is absolutely needless, and millions of people know it. Fully half the people one meets nowadays never suffer corn aches. How can you explain, a trouble so easily avoided? A corn means this: You are treating it by paring, just to get brief relief. Or you coddle it by padding. Or you use some old-time, inefficient method of removal. The proper way to deal with corns is this:j^ Apply a Blue-jay plaster, then forget the corn. It will never pain again. ' In two days, usually, the whole corn disappears. If it doesn't, justapply another plaster. No corn pains tWice with people who ue Blue-jay. And no corn stays. The method is gentle, scientific, sure. It is easy and quick. That is how millions keep free from corns. Let it* keep you free. See how i^ acts tonight.
