Both will come again. The possible producers around Lethbridge and the possible pnrchasers within Lethbridire to have the benefits of a. good market, it is up to the pro- ducers to bring 'in their stuff, to the inarkot management "to let the people know it will bo there and to the con- sumers to be on hand early in the day to buy. In this way the market will become a factor in the business life of the community for the bene- fit of all concerned.

No confirmation, of the report can be obtained in gov- ernment circles. There has been a general expectan- cy ever since prorogation that an election might follow before the House asain met. the excavation does not amount to a great deal being only three or four deep. A few thousand dollars spent in the business section in this would be a very small .item com- pared with the benefits to be derived. Moreover, if it is not done before the pavement is laid it will have to be done some time later at a much great- er expense.

'At the pre- sent time there seems 'to be little use trying to keep it- going. There is lit- tle or no produce brought there for sale and repeated disappointments have made the former purchasers stop coming. The result is that the market day amounts to nothing. This is not as it should be. Leth- bridge should organize and maintain a good market. There are enough people here to make it profitable ii jthey patronized the market as they tsbould. There are enough producers the city to bring in an abun- oi produce to supply the needs of the numerous purchasers. There 'is no doubt as to their being plenty buyers and sellers. There is no 'doubt either about there being suffi- cient money going to buy the pro- duce on sale. The butter, eggs, veg- fresh meat, hay, etc, must be b-'Ught somewhere and as most of the b-.isiness house? oi the city have adopted the cash system, the money must be forthcoming in return for the Now the question is as to whe-j ed hands on the time of the breakup, ther o not the farmers around who Dawson-Fairbanks navigation opens are exuecied to bring in the produce in a few days, probably the first of next week or as soon as the river turn is a detriment to a community. These people are fakirs and every dol- lar spent on them is a dollar wasted and lost. In addition to the business side of it, these things and such peo- ple as make a business of them are a moral menace to the people and as such are undesirable. C "Whusky." "How much day."

The story of the Vigo Bay treasure is even more romantic that Robert Louis Stevenson's "Treasure Island." The facts are said to be as follows: In 1703 Spain acquired vast quan- tities of gold and silver from her mines in the West Indies and a fleet of salleons sailed for home with the unuenaKen uy uie _ panv. Ltd.. under the supervision of treasure, amounting to some .___ nnn AAA in value aboard. When the fleet arrived at Vigo Bay it was attacked by the combined British and Dutch fleets and. to pre- vent, the treasure falling into the inventions will enemies' hands the Spaniards sunk be employed in this expedition, the their ships.
